Harper's Weekly
 
January 31, 1863
   
 
 
Manager Lincoln.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, I regret to say that the Tragedy, en- titled The Army of the Potomac, has been withdrawn on account of Quarrels among the leading Performers, and I have substituted three new and striking Farces or Burlesques, one, entitled The Repulse at Vicksburg, by the well-known, popular favorite, E. M. Sytanton, Esq., and the others, The Loss of the Harriet Lane and The Exploits of the Alabama—a very sweet thing in Farces, I assure you—by the Veteran Composer, Gideon Welles.”

(Unbounded Applause by the Copperheads.)
