The allegory had been upon the stage for the past two nights, under the auspices of the Cincinnati Relief Union, and the proceeds were to have been applied to the relief of the suffering poor of this city. The performers, numbering nearly six hundred children, were taken from the public schools of the city; and, as the object was a worthy one, and the children who took part were those of old residents of the city, large audiences were present at each presentation of the allegory.
