BALFE'S NEW SONGS.

"OH! TAKE ME TO THY HEART AGAIN!"

Poetry by Jessica Rahkih.
Price 2s.

Oh I take me to thy heart again I

I never more will grieve thee :j
All joys are fled and hope is dead

If I indeed must leave thee.
Forgive the wild and angry words

This wayward heart hath spoken;
I did not dream those cherished chords

So lightly could be brokon.

Oh 1 take me to thy heart again.

I think how very sad aud lone

This life would be withnut thee;
For all the joys my heart hath known

Are closely twined around thee.
Oh I teach me to subdue the pride

That wounded tliee so blindly;
And be once more the gentle guide

Who smiled on me so kindly.

Then take me to thy heart again.

"I'M NOT IN LOVE, BEMEMBER."

Poetry by Jessica Rahkih.

Price 2s.

Prithee tell mo, gentle air,
Why my heart is full of care.

And why no pleasures chai
It is not Love torments me so:
I scorn the wily urchin's bow,

His arrows cannot harm me I

I try to sing—my voice is sad I

I sleep 1 bnt theu 'tiajust as bad-
Such gloomy things 1 dream on t

Can you not tell t nor you f nor you?

Oh then I know not what to do
To charm away the demon.

I sometimes think, if " / kno-uj w?to"
Were here, ted tell me what to do.

To bid the demon slumber 1
Could I but hear his voice again,
I'm sure 'twould oheer my heart—but then,
"I'm not in love, remember 1"

I'm not iu love, remember.

EW SONG FOR CHRISTMAS.—« THE CHRIST-
MAS ROSE." By Lovbll Phillips. Beautifully illustrated. Price 2a. «d.

"The Christmas Rose 1 The Christmas Rose I
'Mid wintry frost and snow it blows;
And opes its portals pure and fair,
When winds nave swept the gay parterre.
Just like a true and constaut friend,
Whose faith no storms of life can bend;
Not the mere friend of summer day,
But firm when joy hath passed away.

This flower is like the joy-; that shine,

In sorrow's hour aud life's decline,

Wht n youth hath passed and pleasure flown.

And sad the spirit sigh* alone;

Then marvel not that thus I twine

My thoughts around this gift of thine.

And muse on hopes and joys that lust,

And bloom through life's most piercing blaar."

THE POETRY BY

G. P. MORRIS, Esq.

M. W. BALFE.

When I was in my teens,

I loved dear Margarctta,
I kin iw nut what it means,

I cannot now forget ber.
That vision of the past

My head ia ever crazing,
Yet when I saw ber last,

I oould not speak for gazing.
Queen of rural maids,

My dark-eyed Margarettn,
The heart the mind upbraids,

That struggles to forget her.

My love I know will seem

A wayward, boyish folly;
But, ab; it was A dream

Moat sweet, most molancholy.
Were mine the world's domain,

To me 'twere fortune better
To be a boy again,

And d i earn of Marparetta.
Oh I morn'ry of the past.

Why linger to regret her?
My first love was my last.

And that is Margaretta.

EVANS'S ENGLISH HARMONIUMS,

MANUFACTURED BY

BOOSEY AND SONS, HOLLES STREET, LONDON.

In giving a final answer to the calumnious statements of Messrs. Chappell and Co., Boosey
and Sons would like to know what right these gentlemen have to constitute themselves their critics,
and to subject them to the expense and trouble of answering a series of malicious libels, which,
were it not for the delay, Messrs. Boosey would respond to only in a Court of Justice.

Although confident that the animus of Messrs. Chappell's attack, and the absurdity of
their statements, will be thoroughly appreciated—still, to avoid all possible misunderstanding,
Messrs. Boosey beg again most distinctly to deny having ever published a testimonial obtained
from the exhibition of an Alexandre Harmonium. Every testimonial which they have published
(with two exceptions,) has been given since the establishment of their own manufactory, and
after the examination of a large stock of instruments. The two exceptional testimonials were
given to Mr. Evans, when he introduced for the first time his improvements, and which, as already
stated, were added to the skeleton of an Alexandre Harmonium, which he had entirely
reconstructed. If these alterations consisted in filing the reeds, it is quite obvious that
M. Alexandre, or any other maker, could produce equally good instruments as those of Mr. Evans,
which, hitherto, they have not been able to approach. ,

The public may not care to know anything about Messrs. Boosey's manufactory, but as
Messrs. Chappell have alluded to it, it is necessary to state that it was opened in January last,
when Messrs. Booty's connection with Mr. Evans began. Owing to the very great demand for his
Harmoniums, it had to be removed to more extensive premises in October—a fact which will
account for Messrs. Chappell describing it as a few weeks old, and for their animosity in attacking
Evans's Harmoniums.

As to Herr Engel, Messrs. Boosey and Sons repeat, what they are prepared to prove,
that he offered them his exclusive services to perform on Evans's Harmonium at the termination
of his engagement with his present employer, M. Alexandre, in February next; a fact which
they alluded to, not as a compliment to their Harmoniums, but as a proof of the worth of any
opinion of Herr Engel, whose impudent assertions, that Messrs. Boosey applied to him for a
testimonial, and admitted to him that Mr. Evans exhibited an Alexandre Harmonium as his own,
are totally without foundation.

In order to understand the value of the authorities quoted by Messrs. Chappell in support
of their calumnies, it should be known, that not only is Herr Engel the salaried agent of M.
Alexandre, but Dr. Rimbault (whose name is so much paraded) is regularly in the employ of
Messrs. Chappell, while the English Professors, who, so anxious for the truth, are said to have
examined the French and English Harmoniums side by side, have never once visited Holies Street,
to inspect the instruments of their countryman, and have therefore formed their opinion upon
any specimen of Evans's Harmoniums which Messrs. Chappell have thought proper to submit to
them.

In conclusion, Messrs. Boosey and Sons beg to state, that feeling perfectly satisfied with
the opinion which the public has already pronounced on Evans's Harmoniums (and which is
shared by every independent member of the Musical Profession) it is their intention to avoid
further discussion, treating with silent contempt these attacks, the object of which is so
transparent.

In presenting this prospectus, the projectors of this Association deem It worthy of remark that a great want is felt by a countless number of amateurs possessing musical knowledge and capability of a society which would afford them ample

opportunity of acquiring, at a moderate cost, a complete knowledge of the beauty and grandeur of the choicest and recognized orchestral compositions of this and previous periods.

Tho object of this Association is to bring together the amateur instrumentalists of London and its suburbs, for the practice and performance of oratorios, masses, cantatas, symphonies, operatic selections, and overtures, including compositions but little known to the general public, with other chef-d'oeuvres of the great masters, suitable for band and chorus conjointly or separately.

It is proposed to establish, for the benefit of the amateur department, weekly rehearsal B, on every Saturday Evening, at Eight o'clock, at St. James* Hall, Regent-stroet, commencing this evening, January 7th, I860; and th&t, during the season, concerts shall be given at oue of the large theatres or concertrooms, with the important assistance of the honorary professional members, aud in conjunction with the chorus, as soon as the necessary proficiency is attained.

In the professional department there are still vacancies for honorary members for tho following instruments:—Four first violins, one second violin, and two violas.

All communications to be addressed to the Honorary Secretary of the London Orchestral Association. St. James's Hall, (ticket office) Piccadilly W.
