Our readers will perceive, in a preceding column, an announcement of Mr. Greethead’s Benefit Concert. Recollecting the powerful effect produced when he appeared in Bristol two years since, we congratulate him on his securing that eminent performer Mr. Moscheles; and as the prices of admission are the usual Theatre prices, all classes will have an opportunity of hearing this admirable performer. We expect there will be an overflowing house.
