The Cairo Atheneum.

The repetition of the "Lone Man of the Ocean" was witnessed by another large house last evening. The play passed off remarkably well, and the various tableaux were frequently and rapturously applauded. Miss Lannier was very fine in the "Young Widow."

To-night there is to be a benefit given to the poor of the city, under the superintendence of the ladies of Cairo. It is a worthy object. — Every person attending the Atheneum this evening will have the consciousness of contributing to a noble charity, which will heighten the enjoyment of the occasion. The performance will commence with the roaring farse of "Somebody Else," to be followed by an Olio, or pot pourri, consisting of songs, dances, recitations, &c., &c., by ladies and gentlemen of this city who have kindly volunteered their services. After this will be given a grand fancy dance by M'lle Victoria, the charming and versatile danseuse. Then will come the "Babes in the Wood." The whole to conclude with a brilliant tableaux in which a number of ladies and gentlemen will take parts.

HORNS. — The editor of the News gravely asserts that we do "blow our own horn." Vell, vot hof it? Do not the Chronicles have this: "Verily, I say unto you, that he who bloweth not his own horn, he shall not have his horn blown for him?" Otherwise: "Heaven helps those who helps themselves." Heaven help the News man for he has such a plurality of horns within him — those taken from a decanter with sugar and spoon accompaniments — that he is generally unable to help himself. They are generally winding horns, too, and he would do well to "blow" them to the four winds before they put him prematurely in his winding sheet — the premonitions of which are a cough-in. News, me boy, you're a blower!
