SCENE FROM "NO THOROUGHFARE."

We present this week the final scene of "No Thoroughfare" at the Adelphi Theatre, in which Obenreizer finds himself outwitted by the true and simple honesty of those whom he thought to take in by his cunning.  The coolness with which he had pursued his career up to that point gives way, and he is compelled, like less reserved people, to permit utterance to his real feelings, though far from pleasant either to himself or others.  His passion now lays open the dark places of his disposition, and his appeal to Marguerite is full of the frenzy which is inspired by desperation.  The characters are impersonated by Mr. Fechter (Obenreizer), Mr. Neville (George Vendale), Mr. Belmore (Bintrey), and Miss Leclercq (Marguerite) and realise to the life the closing situation.
