heroine not for the first time. Mile. Parcpa does not betray any ambition to attain histrionic excellence; but we may praise unreservedly her clear and finished vocalisation. The deep feeling we have noted in other impersonators we missed in Mile. Parepa, but her singing was above reproach. In the "Shadow song" the waltz movement was encored. Mad. Laura Baxter's debut on the English stage was full of promise. In spite of the effect of the canzonetta " Fanciulle chc il core" being impaired by exceeding nervousness, the rich quality of Mad. Baxter's voice, and her firm singing, elicited an encore.

The other characters wore sustained, as on former occasions, by Miss Thirlwall, Mr. St. Albyn, Mr. Corri, and last, not least, Mr. Santley.


The month of September opens well for the Crystal Palace. With an excess of visitors, two hundred thousand beyond any former year, it steadily advances in public estimation, and up to the period of closing the International Exhibition, it will no doubt continue the same progressive increase which has marked the past two months.

One cause for this is owing to the varied attractions put before the public. As these are always announced a week beforehand, visitors have their choice of the particular speciality most suited to their tastes. It is not to be inferred, that the peculiar and unrivalled attractions of the Crystal Palace proper — so to speak — are on the wane ; on the contrary, the admiration and gratification expressed by the thousands of foreigners and strangers who visit it daily are unbounded. As, however, a particular attraction suits various tastes, the variety brought to bear on each week adds many to those who would visit Sydenham without any speciality beyond those comprised in the building and grounds.

In the coming week, on Monday and Saturday, the whole of the Great Fountains will play. On Monday, Mr. Coxwell will make an ascent in his great balloon, which has acquired so much celebrity from its ascents with Mr. Glashier, for the scientific objects connected with the British Association. Mr. Coxwell's late exhibitions at the Crystal Palace have done much to popularise aerostation, several hundreds of persons having availed themselves of the recent opportunities of ascending for a few hundred feet. As the car of this great balloon is of almost omnibus size, and will contain sixteen persons, it is not surprising that applications to accompany Mr. Coxwell in his serial trips are becoming frequent. Monday is likewise the day fixed for the excursions of the South London Foresters

The great Autumn Show of Flowers and Fruit will be held at the Palace on Wednesday and Thursday, the 3rd and 4th of September. The reputation the Crystal Palace has acquired for its flower shows is well known. Being always under the roof of the Palace they are unaffected by vicissitudes of weather. Those which have been already held during the present year have been unusually successful. That the present show may be no exception to the popular rule which is being so successfully carried out, the charge for admission to the Palace on the days of the flower show will not be increased, but continue at the one shilling rate, and thus, all classes may have the opportunity of participating in the pleasure of these great displays. M. Blondin will walk the high rope over the Fountains on Tuesday, and give low rope exhibitions on the Friday.

Commencing with the 1 st of September, Season Tickets, admitting to'the Palace up to May I, 1863, will be issued at Half-a-Guinea each. The large sale of these tickets is not to be wondered at, when it is known that they admit to all the attractions of the Palace for eight months.

On Tuesday September 9, the Great Brass Band Contest will be held at the Palace. Forty-nine of the principal champion district bands of England have entered as competitors for the prizes to be awarded, and these will be reinforced by a large staff of regimental drummers and buglers. Tho contest will commence in the grounds of the Palace at ten o'clock. The combined bands will perform in the great Orchestra at three, at the conclusion of which, tho selected bands will contest for the prizes, which will be afterwards presented to the winners in front of the Orchestra.

During the month of August upwards of four hundred thousand persons entered the Palace, by far the larger proportion of whom it is estimated visited it for tho first time.

Schwalbach.— The members of the Licdertafel lately serenaded M. Meyerbeer by torchlight. To mark his appreciation of this compliment, the world-renowned composer has promised to dedicate to them to new choral piece.

Hombcro. —Vieuxtemps and Alfred Jaell have been playing at concerts to the great satisfaction of the visitors.


(From our own Correspondent.)

There is little stirring just now in the musical way. At the Opera we have had the Prophete, with Mad. Tedesco and M. Gueymard, to a receipt of 10,274 francs. The attraction of the grand operas of Meyerbeer seems perennial. Mad. Ferraris has been dancing in the ballet of L'EtoUe de Messine with her accustomed success, and a new dancer, Mad. Dulaurens, has made her debut in Fanny Cerito's favourite ballet of La Vivandiere, without making anybody forget Fanny Cerito, although by no means devoid of talent.

At the Opera Comique, Pergolesi's La Serva Padrona (which, by the way, though more old fashioned, is less pleasing and less dramatic than Paesiello's opera of the same name) continues to draw money. G-rdtry's Zemire et Azor (which, by the way, though more old fashioned, is less pleasing and less dramatic than Spohr's opera of the same name) is now being revived at the same theatre, where Dalayrac's Deux Mots (first produced in 1806) is also promised; so that, but for La Fille du Regiment, in which Mile. Bleau pursues her debuts, we should be all among the ancients. M. Warot's engagement is renewed for three years.

Signor Calzado, manager of the Italian Opera, has at length got over his difficulties, and signed an agreement with the present proprietors of the Ventadour, who outbid him at the sale. Thus the anomaly of one speculator having a company of artists with no theatre, and other speculators a theatre with no company of artists, is squashed. Patrons of Signor Calzado (who has still two seasons of privilege) will be sorry to learn that he has been unable to secure the cooperation of Signor Mario, and glad to learn that he has obtained those of Mile. Adelina Patti, I hear that Tamberlik is engaged for one month only. In revenge, Signor Calzado announces two new tenors, Signori Videl and Cantoni, of whom nobody ever heard. The season commences on the first of October.

M. Berlioz is returned to Paris from Baden-Baden^where the success of his Beatrice et Benedict will probably induce the manager of the Opera, or Operas, in Paris, to reconsider their policy with regard to his Trojans. After all, it would appear, from Baden correspondents, that M. Hector (Berlioz) has been able to personify Achilles and vanquish himself, by which I mean to change his style. The tour of the Orpheonists in Italy, undertaken by M. Delaporte, who was organising grand fetes to take place at Milan and Turin, is indefinitely postponed. The ship promised by Minister Ratazzi to transport the Orpheonists to the Italian shores being now, it appears, required for other purposes. The entire receipts derived from theatres, concerts, balls, singingcafes, and spectacles of every kind, for the month of July last, amounted 947,791 francs, 72 cents.

Letters from Milan, by the way, inform us that the music of Beethoven and Mendelssohn, so long neglected even at the most musical of Italian towns, is becoming in the Lombard capital quite in vogue. At a recent public meeting of the pupils of the Conservatory, one of Beethoven's symphonies and the music of Mendelssohn's A Midsummer Night's Dream, were performed, and not only well performed, but received with extraordinary enthusiasm.

M. Jean Ilindle, the veteran double-bass player at the Imperial Court Theatre, died recently, in his 70th year.

Milan.—M. Gounod's Faust will be produced in the course of this season at La Scala.

Cologne.—The new Stadt-theater will be opened about the 20th October.

Liverpool.—On Saturday evening last, Miss Alice Dodd gave another very successful concert in the large hall of St. George's Hall. The occasion was remarkable for a good display of talent, and a wellselected programme. Miss Dodd enjoyed even more than her usual success, which is always assured in her native town, as it has lately been in the metropolis. Her first appearance was in the trio "TeSol;" but her principal success was in a ballad composed expressly for her, which was sung with much taste. In the second part, besides the concerted pieces, Miss Dodd gave a new waltz of Arditi's and " Barney O'Hea," aud "Within a mile o' Edinbro' toun," with excellent comic and national piquancy —to cite the "excellent comic and national piquancy " of a writer in the Liverpool Daily Post. Mile. Georgi has a fine contralto, and, in response to one of her encores, gave "The deep, deep sea," with effect. Mr. Herrman Slater, besides contributing to the programme as it composer, sang a tenor song, and (again to cite the "excellent comic and national piquancy" of a writer in the Liverpool Daily Post), Mr. Henry Ashton is a barytone of whom great things may be expected, if he devotes to his voice the study which its quality will well repay." Herr Wilhelm was the conductor.

American Pianofortes. — Steinway's instruments in 'the Exhibition — two grands and one square piano — stand in the first rank, with the pianos which have excited most attention. These instruments win by their full, round tone, and also interest by ingenious mechanical inventions. The bass strings in them are overstrung, both saving room and increasing the fullness of tone ; the metallic frame consists of a single piece of cast iron, &c. Of all the numerous mechanical improvements— partly revivals of old ideas long since exploded, partly relating to little subordinate details, and partly useless—Stcinway's method, young and little tried as it yet is, seemed to us to have the greatest capacity of developement, the most of a Future in it. The history of this greatest (?) pianoforte establishment in America is interesting enough. The old Steinway went to seek his fortune in America twelve years ago, having found little business in Brunswick He and his four sons (all piano makers) entered various manufactories in New York as workmen, to educate themselves in the different branches of their art according to the American system. After an assiduous apprenticeship of three years they began, in a small and cautious way, to manufacture on their own account. They finished scarcely one piano a week. But soon their fame began to spread; they erected a larger establishment, and brought home medals from every Exhibition. Finally, in the course of the last three years the business became so expanded, that "Steinway and Sons" built their six-story factory, which abuts on two streets, and employs about 350 workmen. A steam-engine of fifty horse power drives all the machinery; the most powerful plane every constructed planes the largest boards smooth at one stroke. About 600 pianos are constantly in hand, and a private telegraph works between the factory and the place of sale. Such a swift and high industrial flight is absolutely inconceivable upon the Continent.—D wight's Journal of Music.Boston.

American Comedians.— It is singular enough that a tendency towards under-acting seems generally prevalent among American artists. People who study the character of our cousins by the highly-seasoned viands administered to them in popular speeches and newspaper leaders would imagine that something coarse and very'gaudily-coloured prevailed on the American stage. The reverse, however, seems to be the case. Founding our opinion on the somewhat liberal teaching of recent experience, we arrive at the conclusion that American acting is, for the most part, rather too delicate than too robust in its nature; and that the performers, far from running the risk of plunging into vulgar caricature, are likely to stop short before they reach a full delineation of character. The sole exception to this general rule appears to be the Lord Dundreary of Mr. Sotbern, which is a masterpiece of highly-finished eccentricity.

A Good Example. — A lady, who died recently at Leipzig, has bequeathed 500 thalers to the orchestra of the Gewandhaus concerts, to "be distributed among the musicians, as a mark of her gratitude for the pleasure she has had in listening to them. She has also left a special legacy to the servants employed in the concerts. The same lady has given 1000 thalers to the Leipzig musical Conservatoire.

** The above are a few of the prettiest vocal pieces that have appeared during the past publishing season. They are all by well-known and popular composers, of whose talents they are agreeable specimens. Balfe's French romance is in his happiest it has i ........

it vein.

Our countryman has successfully contended with the Parisian composers on their own ground—witness the reception of his fine operas, Les Quatrt Fits Aymon and he Putts d'Amour, at the Opera Comique; and in the little song before us he shows how entirely he is at home in the French style. It is tender and passionate, with that infusion of graceful lightness and gaiety which gives the French poetry and music of this class their peculiar charm. Signor Gardoni has sung it in public with delicious effect j but it by no means requires the aid of such a singer to make it charming,- Mr. Alfred Mellon's ballad is worthy of that able and eminent musician. The melody is simple and natural, without being trite or commonplace; and the whole composition shows that new and striking effects of modulation and harmony may be produced without setting at defiance (as is too often done) the established principles and rules of art.— Few vocal pieces of the present time have obtained greater popularity than Herr Refchardl's song," Thou art so near," not only in English, but (by means of its German and French versions) all over the Continent His new production, *■ Memory," is of a similar character, and bids fair tp have a similar success. Mr. Desmond Ryan's verses are elegtmt, and lleichardt has united them to a melody at once pure, simple, and expressive. Signor Pinsuti's ballad, " Hast thou no tear for me?" has been recommended to the attention of the public by the pleasing performance of Mr. Tennant, for whom it was written, and by whom it has been sung at many of the best concerts of the season. Signor Plnsutl, an Italian, has produced an air of Italian grace and beauty, while he has entirely avoided the faults into which foreign composers so often fall In setting English words to music. The melody not only expresses the sentiment conveyed by the poetry, but does not present a single misplaced emphasis or accent — a most important requisite in vocal music. Mr. Knight's canzonet is melodious, flowing, and extremely well fitted for a mezzo-soprano or contralto voice. There is a flaw in one place which dims the clearness of the harmony. In bar 8, page 2, G flat in the melody is accompanied by E natural in the bass, creating a diminished third (or tenth)—an interval very rarely allowed, and not, we think, in the present case. There is much that is masterly in Mr. Land's romanza, and Mr. Santley, for whom it was composed, has sung it with deserved success. We could have wished it had been a little less elaborate ; that the flow of the melody had been less disturbed by extraneous modulation; and that the pianoforte accompaniment had been lighter and less loaded with notes. It is a fine song, nevertheless, and not unworthy of the author's well-merited reputation."— The Press.
