"ALICE, WHERE ART THOU?"
66 A LICE, Where Art Thou?" Romance; sung by
-*cjl. 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 t' as consummate an artist as a vocal writer as he is renowned as a Mala' for the pianoforte. The melody is graceful, flowing, and original, full of the most original feeling and thought. It has been sung by Sims Reeves, Gardoni, Mr. Tennant, Mr Perren, Mr. Tedder, Mr. Me*chor Winter, and all the leading tenors of the day. Two editions of this romance have been printed—one in B flat for laJies'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 4 Alice, who art thou?' and one that must, on its merits alone., become the most popular song of the present day."—(Irish Times.)

Ij! MILE BERGER'S NEW PIANO SOLO, U "LES ECHOS DE LONDRES."
This new fantasia was composed exuressty for M. Ole Bull, Herr Formes. Mr, and Mrs. Tennant, and Miss Anna Whitty's provincial tour. It has been played by Mr. Emile Berger (as well as the trauscription of Ferrari's popular serenade" Vieni, "t "> every where with the greatest success, and has invariably been encored.
"The introduction of the two popular melodies, * Gentle Annie" and 1 UT" L*nd,* 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.

HERR REICHARDT'S NEW SONG,
Sung At the Crystal Palace Concerts by HEIIR REICHARDT, with immense success.
The Times says: " Ilerr Reichardt, the German tenor, whose pure, classical style and fervid expression— still remembered, in spite of two years' absence—were displayed with the utmost effect In a characteristic song from his own pen, entitled * Are they meant but to deceive me?' which exhibited more than one touch worthy the composer of that deservedly popular romance, ' Thou art so near and yet so far.*

Hanovkr.—Marsehncr 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 Neustiidter churchyard, where it was received by a second. The Rey. Herr Huge 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, no t a very high personage, as well as by the conductor's baton belonging to the deceased, and the various orders and decorations conferred on him during his long career.
*' The Standard Course of Lessons on the ' Tonic Sol-Fa' method of teaching to sing ;" " The Pianoforte Edition of 'Songs and Tunes for Education,' having a bass which may be sung by Male Teachers."— Edited by John Curwen (Ward and Co.).
No one who takes an interest in the "Tonic Sol-Fa" system should be unpossessed of these works. Such admirable compendiums say much for the teachers and promulgators of the system, whatever we may think of the system itself. The volume of " Songs and Tunes" contains no less than 267 pieces, set to poetry of various degrees of merit, the work of various hands, and generally well harmonised. Mr. Curwen's introduction is worth reading, as explanatory of the moral purpose, no less than the practical utility of the compilation.
"La Plus Charmandate"— polka; "The Star of Erin"— quadrille—by Charles Bridge (Cocks and Co.).
"La plus charmante" is a far-fetched title for what is at the best a very commonplace polka. "7he Star of Erin" quadrille is "founded on national Irish airs," to which Mr. Prince adds occasionally eight bars of his own, which are by no means "Irish" in character. (See, for example, the cornet solo at the foot of "Pantalon. ") Moreover, his notions of harmony are queer at times; as, for instance : —
fitters to tbt (Suitor.
"Feuillet dAlbum"—For the pianoforte—by* Ferdinand Falk (Cramer, Beale and Wood).
A "song without words" in D flat major, graceful, melodious and well-written, but not strikingly original.
"Alice, where art thou ? romance"— words by Wellington Guernsey; music by T. Ascher (Duncan, Davison and Co.).
A model ballad, if there ever was one. Mr. Guernsey has been extremely happy with his words, and has found in Mr. Ascher a musical on ne plus peut sympathique co-labourer. The romance was composed for Signor Gardoni, for whose voice and style it is suited a ravir.
"He came in the Moonlight" — words by Wellington Guernseyl music Spanish (Mtetzler and Co.).
Mr. Guernsey has been no less happy in this than in the foregoing. The air is extremely quaint and pretty, and we are not at all surprised to hear, Mile. Adelina Patti being the singer, that "He came in the Moonlight" has attained more than ordinary vogue and popularity in Dublin.
"A Mother's Love" ballad — words and melody by H. St. Leger; accompaniments by S. Janette St. Leger (Dancan Davison and Co.).
This little unpretending ballad, if nicely sung, must please all hearers. It is indeed, in its way, a " bijou."
Sir, —I shall feel obliged if you will favour me with your opinion and advice on the following in next Saturday's number of the Musical World.
Having failed to commence the pianoforte when younger, and being now 30 years of age, my fingers have become too set to obey the will. I am very fond of music, particularly vocal, and am conversant with all the rudiments. At the same time, I have long regretted not being able to accompany my songs, but compelled to trouble other people in the matter. If you could kindly suggest any other instrument, the manipulation of which you think could be more easily got over by an adult than the piano, I should feel much obliged. Any remarks you may make on the subject will equally oblige.
[Our columns are open to any one capable and willing to afford our correspondent the counsel and information he solicits.—En.]
NATIONAL CHORAL SOCIETY.
Sib,— Many members of the above say, "Many thanks to you for your advice to the silly girls," of whom we have many more than are useful, or, in fact, ornamental. But, alas! our director is a singular man, and seems not to comprehend the requirements of a large society. His ideas seem confined to the quartet and piano accompaniment—asks no advice, and appreciates none if offered. Internally there is, in reality, no management; it is all sixes and sevens: no marvel that all is unsteadiness, if not confusion, in the orchestra; the parts being unjointcd the fabric cannot be compact. A score of improprieties require correcting before any stability can be hoped for, if ever it be. Your occasional rebuke will be always appreciated by those in the Society whose opinions and services are worth having.—Yours obediently,
Society For Encouragement Of The Fine Arts. — On Thursday evening last the first of two lectures on the " Life and Works of Beethoven," was delivered by Mr. Alfred Gilbert, at the Society's rooms, 9 Conduit Street. From the importance of the subject, a large number of amateurs and some critics were present. The lecturer, evidently well up in his subject, divided it in three parts, taking for consideration the first period of Beethoven s career, and reserving the two remaining for the lecture of next Thursday. Amongst the illustrations given — which formed in themselves a really interesting concert—were the trio in C, Op. 1, part of the quintet in E flat, and trio in E flat, and the slow movement of No. 1, Op. 2, and the entire Moonlight Sonata. The playing of Mr. Gilbert in the last two pieces ig deserving of special commendation. The vocal illustrations were necessarily few, but were well given by Mad. Gilbert, who sang the charming song, "Know'st thou the land;" Miss Roden, "In qucsta touiba; and Mr. Southwell, "Adelaida." Mr. Gilbert was ably assisted in the instrumental selections by Herr Polittzer, violin; Mr. W. E. Evans, viola; and Herr Daubert, violoncello.
Milan.—Mile. Csillag is engaged at the Scala.
Florence.—Herr von Flotow's Martha has been highly successful, despite a great deal of national opposition on the part of a certain portion of the public.
St. Petersburgh.—The Italian opera is still, as it ever has been, the rendezvous of all the fashionables in the capital on the banks of the Neva. It is here that the ladies of the first rank flock to display their rich toilets, and still richer jewels, to say nothing of their beauty. The leading artists are Graziani, Calzolari, Taraberlik, Signore La Grua and Fioretti. The Russian opera cannot be compared to the Italian. Yet it is very popular, and quite as well attended. A short time ago, on the occasion of Patrow's benefit, it could not contain all the persons who sought admission. The favourite basso selected an opera which has already been played 185 times, namely, Life for the Czar, and in which he appeared for the first time twenty-five years ago.
