      MASTER BURKE
      Master Burke sailed yesterday, Friday, in the Hibernia steam-packet, for
      England, a country where his extraordinary talents, unexampled in one so young,
      only five years old, are sure to receive that reward, which the liberality of
      Englishmen always render to extraordinary merits. His fame is gone before him.
      The applause he received from Dublin audiences was followed by a most polite
      invitation, which he and his father, Dr. Burke, received from the Lord
      Lieutenant, to spend last Thursday evening at the Park. His Excellency was
      delighted and astonished at Master Burke's acting, singing, and his performance
      on the most difficult instrument, the violin.--[ Freeman Journal of Saturday.
