And Bessie the milk-maid merrily sang,

For the meadows were fresh and fair, The breeze of the morning kiss'd her brow,

And played with her nut-brown hair. But oft she turn'd, and look'd around,

As if the silence scorning : 'Twas time for the mower to whet his scythe

At five o'clock in the morning.

And over the meadows the mowers came,

And merry their voices rang,
And one among them wended his way

To where the milk-maid sang.
And as he linger'd by her side,-

Despite her comrade's warning, The old, old story was told again

At five o'clock in the morning.

"rpHE QUEEN'S CONCERT ROOMS in Hanover

s Square—the home of the time-honoured and justly-renowned Concerts of the Philharmonic Society -are still unsurpassed. Well adapted to the transmission of sound, as they have ever been, they are now completely renovated, so at to increase in every way both the comfort of the audience and the convenience of the orchestra. In the decoration of the large Concert Room and its dependencies, no expense has been spared ; and the general effect, while, perhaps, from the point of view of abstract * taste.' In some degree open to criticism, is certainly enlivening. The lighting of the Concert Hoorn is a novelty which may be fairly pronounced a great success ; and not less important in their way are the improvements which have been made in the ventilation of the building—the most difficult of problems, where crowds are used to congregate. On other details—such as the new arrangements for seating the audience, and for facilitating their ingress and egress—it is unnecessary to dwell Enough that the Hanover Square Rooms—where Weber, Spohr and Mendelssohn first stirred up the enthusiasm of a London musical audience—are at this present period as worthy as ever of their long-estahlished repute."—y the Times, Feb. 13.

NEGLECTED COMPOSERS. Sib,—In the admirable criticism upon Benedict's new opera, appearing in last week's number of the Musical World, you say, and justly,—" It is strange, that since 1846, when The Crusaders, his third opera, was produced at Drury Lane Theatre, a dramatic composer of such eminence should have been neglected by the directors of our operatic establishments." Strange it is, but true. Equally strange, permit me to say, is it that the composer of The Mountain Sylph, and Fair Rosamond, an Englishman by birth, should have been still more neglected, when it is well known that for more than sixteen years he has had operas ready for production. But John Barnett has been, and is, a neglected musician. Respecting this gentleman and E. J. Loder, kindly allow me to make a very brief quotation from one of my musical lectures:—

"To meet with the best compositions of this musician (speaking of Loder) it is necessary to go into the 'Byways of Song.' Why is it so? Lord Macaulay, in one of his admirable essays, remarks that 'in those things which concern this life, and this world, man constantly becomes wiser and wiser.' Now is this true as regards music? To my thinking it is not. Were it so, we should hear as much of Barnett as of Blonditi, and of Loder as of Leotard. . . . However, though we hear so little of such composers as Loder and Barnett now, we must hope for days when good music will be the real sensation music (that's the word I believe) and the performance of a great and accomplished artist will excite as much admiration as the ascension of a Blondin, the boundings of 'Flying Man,'or the jutnpings of a 'perfect cure.' Such institutions as the 'Monday Popular Concerts ' are highly calculated to bring about this desirable state of things. Long may they flourish!"

Frederick Pexna. Cambridge Terrace, Hyde Park, 26/A February.

"Once Too Often."—Mr. Howard Glover has just brought out at Drury Lane Theatre un opeictta entitled Once Too Often, which is very highly spoken of by critics. Produced at Christmas time, our readers might fancy that Once Too Often was a political satire upon the behaviour of the Yankees on the "Trent difficulty." Such, however, is not the case, for though Mr. Glover is both a clever journalist and composer, he wisely remembers that "there's a place for everything," though the "difficulty" has been harmoniously settled,and produced no discord.—Liverpool Porcupine.

Mr. W. Seymour Smith gave a lecture on "Music," assisted by Mrs. Seymour Smith, with vocal and instrumental illustrations, at the Whitlington Club, on Thursday week, which proved highly attractive. Amongst the "illustrations," those which seemed to please the most were the song "Hearts of oak," and a duet for the pianoforte (a war march), the former sung with great spirit by Mr. Seymour Smith, and the latter capitally played by Mr. and Mrs. Seymour Smith. Tho audience were evidently pleased with the lecture, and the announcement of its repetition at an early period was received with satisfaction.

Scuwerin.— Anew and orginal operetta, Der Hauirer, by Herr Gustav Horteh a member of the band at the Court Theatre, has been produced and favourably received.
