"ALICE, WHERE ART THOU?”
A LICE, Where Art Thou? Romance; sung by
A Signor Gardoni, and written by Wellington Guernsey. Music by J. Ascher. " Mr. Ascher, whose fame as a writer of pianoforte music is European, has proved himself in ‘Alice, where art thou ?' as consummate an artist as a vocal writer as he is renowned as a composer for the pianoforte. The melody is graceful, flowing, and cri. ginal, full of the most original feeling and thought. It has been sung by Sims Reeves, Gardoni, Mr. Tennant, Mr Perren, Mr. Tedder, Mr. Melchor Winter, and all the leading tenors of the day. Two editions of this romance have been printed--one in B Bat for ladies' voices, and the other in D flat for tenors. Altogether, we have seldom met with a composition embodying all the elements of popularity in so great a degree as M. Ascher's romance of 'Alice, who art thou?' and one that must, on its merits alone, become the most popular song of the present day.”-(Irish Times.)

"The introduction of the two popular melodies, Gentle Annie' and 'Dixy's Land,' was a happy idea of Mr. Berger. The audience were delighted, and the applause was so great that the talented pianist was obliged to return to the platform and repeat the fantasia, to the great delight of the audience."-Sheffield Paper.

HANOVER.-Marschner was buried early on the 18th ult. A numerous procession of friends and admirers, and a long string of carriages, headed by two of the king's, followed the composer's remains to their last resting place. One band accompanied the procession as far as the Neustädter churchyard, where it was received by a second. The Rev. Herr Ruge delivered a touching address over the grave, into which the corpse was lowered amid the strains of the chorus of the Theatre Royal. The coffin was decorated with palm branches and a laurel chaplet, sent from a very high personage, as well as by the conductor's bâton belonging to the deceased, and the various orders and decorations conferred on him during his long career.
