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.

d ian of the large Concert Room and its aepruut..

[ocr errors]

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 as 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 Room 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 tor 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-established repute."- Vide the Times, Feb. 13.

" ONCE TOO OFTEN."- Mr. Howard Glover has just brought out at Drury Jane Theatre an operetta 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, how. ever, 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 Whittington 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. The audience were evidently pleased with the lecture, and the announcement of its repetition at an early period was received with satisfaction.
