writing in praise of union and peace, with whtoh is cleverly interwoven a trio by the Queen, Ldwenholm, and Arvid, expressive of each other's doubts what the effect of the unexpected intervention will be, and speculations concerning the rank, Ac., of the supposed young officer. The ensemble is striking, if only on account of the noise made. It is • pity this close is so fully instrumented. The whole chorus—to the minutest progression—is laboriously worked out, and convinced us at leaBt that Redern's pen can make some master-strokes at times. The curtain falls, as the last strains of the chorus die away, and as the soldiers depart in military order. This situation is very effective, and gives evidenco of judgment and matured reflection.,

The second act opens with a chorus of female voices. It is in praise of beauteous nature, and has a charmingly pastoral character. "We are thus introduced to Ella, or rather she to us. In company with Arvid, she sings with him a duet, the refrain of which is his safe return and the prospect of futuro joys. To our thinking, the composer has been here least happy iu his efforts. He appears not to have had sufficiently definite ideas of what he wanted to pourtray in tones. The remainder of tho act is devoted to the conoocting of a plot against the Queen and throne. The finest movement of the whole is the oath of the conspirators. It is a unisonic phrase of no great length, but great power anil and effect. The whole arrangements are completed, and the conspirators are just about to proceed to activo measures, when a body of armed soldiers burst into the room, and demand of them in the name of the Queen to lay aside their arms and vicious intentions. During this operation, performed, as may bo supposed, with a very ill grace, tho curtain falls on act the second.

The third and last act shows us the Queen in her royal capacity, surrounded by the usual number of well-got-up ladies in waiting, lords of the, &c., Are. After dismissing her attendants sho unburdens her soul, and acknowledges two very startling circumstances, firstly, that •he is tired of the "cramping crown;" and, secondly, that she is in love with Arvid. The ballad form has here been employed with the utmost success. Tho composer has been fortunate enough to ereaie a beautifully plaintive melody, and to avoid damaging it by overloaded and far-fetched accompaniment.

Poor Ella, who comes to petition for her imprisoned lover, meets with a decidedly cool reception, in fact, it is only on the promise of renouncing him altogether that the Queen promises to spare his life. There is here plenty of opportunity for dramatic display, both for the composer and executant. The contrast is very striking: on the one side, the brutal outburst of triumph when the Queen hos wrung the cruel resolution from her victim, and the heart-rending sobbings of the other Over her cruel fate. It is a grand dramatic climax, in fact, and did not fail in its effect either on the part ot the singer or the public. Ella's departure from the presence of the Queen with the words—

"O Horz, uns soli dein Schlagen"— is as beautifully conceived as carried out. Overjoyed at her success, the Queen scarco suffers Ella to be clear away, before she summons Arvid, and confesses- her passion for him without reserve, adding, of course, the comforting remark, that Ella was unfaithful, 4c, Ac. Arvid stands aghast at this bewildering change o'er the spirit of his dream. However, be defeats the selfish ends of her Majesty by vows of eternal fidelity to Ella, and, finding herself defeated here, she sends for her oounael, Rinsfelk, and, in giving Ella to Arvid, pardons tho conspirators, and abdicates the throne in favour of her cousin "Charles Gustave." The whole closes with a chorus and trio by Ella, Arvid, and Lowcnholm, in praise of her Majesty's virtues, Ac.

Such is an outline of Count Redern's new opora Christine. What remains to be said of the music can, fortunately, be said in a few words. It betrays throughout considerable melodio talent j judgment in the employment of tho instruments; a thorough comprehension of the human voice, and its natural capabilities; and lastly, a more than meagre acquaintanceship with the intricate laws of polyphonic writing. It is the misfortune of the composer, however, to be of noble birth, and to this fact alone we attribute the fate which seems to have fallen to the lot of his maiden opera. Almost without exception the blindly biassed critics have '* cut" it up. One thinks it vile presumption and abuse of power to have ever produced such "stuff" at all, etc. Another pities tho singers who are compelled to learn •'rubbish," etc., of this calibre; pities'the publio for having found any good point in the whole work, and closes his splenetio effusion by calling on heaven to forgive him for the three wasted hours, etc. Another hints that such composers are fit subjects for St. Luke's, etc. Such like criticisms as these are what these gigantic scribes call unprejudiced remarks! Only one (Re lis tab) criticises in the spirit of a well-wishing artist and of a

gentleman. He does not overlook the weak points, nor forget to say an encouraging word concerning the good ones. Here, however, just as mysteriously as in Richard the Third, we are told r—

Aunt Voss* of Berlin is not so bold,

For Bellstab, thy critic, is bought and sold!

And all these outpourings of bitter malice, simply because the.composer of the new opera bears at the same time the title of nobility and that of the intendant of the king's chamber-musicians! In asserting that had the ink proceeded from the pen of a mere plebeian author, it never would have been produced where it was, etc., they have betrayed their selfish political opinions, and suffered them to gain the better of their judgment; and yet these very men cry loudest for a clear distinction to be kept between mean, worldly, political life, and the more holy, more ennobling pursuit of art. We have no striking partiality for the nobility as such, but far bo it from us to forget the debt of gratitude artandartists owe to those whom fortune has been pleased so tosmileupon. In conclusion, we would just say to the composer of Christine, pursue your artistic career without fear of such manifestly one-sided attacks as you have been lately subjected to, not forgetting, however, to profit by the well-meant, and gentlemanly counsel of the true art-critics. To the Berlin critics, and to the critics in general, we can only say, be wary in putting out altogether the fire of any artistic spirit. Leave but one spark, that animation may not be-beyond the pale of possibility. After being once checked, the flume may burn the brighter; extinguish it, and it is dead for ever. Admonish as you will, but always as gentlemen, and rather endear the artist to you by your friendly counsel, than dishearten and disgust him.

A Country Souse near Bologna, August \\th, 1770.

We ore living here in the home of the Marshal Pallavicini in a most princely manner; we hare a valet and a footman always at our orders, the first sleeps in our ante-chamber, so as to be always within call; we have the coolest rooms next the Sala terrena. The young Count, who is exceedingly well brought up, and has much talent, is the best of friends with Wolfgang, who loves him tenderly. They never allow me to stand, they insist on my being seated on one chair, with my leg supported on another. Indeed, to-day, in the chapel, during mass, which is performed every day at noon, two chairs had been thus arranged for me. The young count, who is only the same age as Wolfgang, is already ChamberIain to the Emperor, and he assists in the mass, after which they say the ohaplet, the litanies, the Salve Begins, and the Dc Profundi*.

Wolfgang goes out in the carriage with the old countess and her son, I with the old count. We shall stay here until my leg is quite healed.

We ore still in the country, at the Croce del Bitcco, which belongs to the Count Bolognetti, but which has been rented of him for several years by Count Pallavicini. The 30th they will celebrate in a magnificent manner the annual file of the Philharmonic Society of Bologna; there will be high mass, vespers, Ac.

P.S. from Wolfgang.—I am still living, and always gay; to-day I had s wish to ride on a donkey—it is the fashion in Italy, so consequently I thought I must try it. We have the honour of knowing a certain Dominican, who pastes for a saint; as for me I don't believe a word of it, because I see him take, at breakfast, first a good cup of chocolate, and then on the top of that, a large glass of Spanish wine. I have had the honour of eating in the company of this saint, who, besides drinking freely during the repast, finished it up with a large glass of the strongest wine, two good slices of melon, peaches, pears, five cups of coffee, a plate of little cakes, and a lemon ice. Perhaps he did all thin on a system of "mortification," but yet I should have some trouble to believe that; it would be too much at a time, and then, besides his dinner, he takes too good care of his supper.

My books and my collections of music are most notably augmented. Everything is getting too small for Wolfgang, the silk rolled round his diamond ring has been unwound, only a little wax remains; bis limbs have become larger and stronger; he no longer has any voice for singing, neither high notes or low ones, not even five pure notes. This vexes him, because he can no longer sing his own compositions, which he was very foud of doing.

SEASON 186 0.

THE Lessee and Director, having completed arrangements which enable him to make the announcement under peculiarly favourable circumstance*, has the gratification to acquaint the nobility, gentry, and the public, th.it HER MAJESTY'S THEATRE will OPEN for the SEASON on Tuesday, the 10th of April next. Her Majesty's Theatre for more than a century has been recognized as the first Lyric Theatre in Europe. With this magnificent establishment are intimately associated all the splendour and prestige of Italian Opera; to it also belong the most brilliant reminiscences of the Ballet. The history of Her Majesty's Theatre is identified with the progress of music in this country, and its name made memorable by the special patronage of Royalty. Its spacious and noble area, its peculiarity of construction— which renders it the finest theatre in the world for sound—its perfect suitableness for the purposes of musio, and, more than all, its locality in the most fashionable and easily-accessible part of the metropolis, point to it as the temple of high-art entertainment best adapte dto the taste and accommodation of the Court and the aristocracy. In short, no other opera-house in existence can boast of equal advantages in point of convenience of site, commodiousness of construction, and elegance of appearance. Considerable changes and improvements have been made in order to conduce to the comfort and satisfaction of the subscribers and the public. The theatre lias undergone a thorough renovation in the interior and exterior, and several alterations hare been effected throughout the building, which the Director thought were imperatively culled for, and which lie feels satisfied will meet with universal approbation. The crush room and entrances have been rendered commodious and elegant, a perfect system of ventilation has been adopted, and every care taken to ensure the accommodation of the audience. The Lessee is deeply impressed with the responsibilities of his new undertaking. He feels that he has made himself answerable to all his patrons for the production of every work at Her Majesty's Theatre in a style of completeness and excellence worthyof their support. As an assurance that due exertion will not be wanting to arrive at this result, he may refer to the accompanying list of artistes and arrangements for the forthcoming season :—

Engagements—Mdlle. Piccolomini (her farewell nights previous to her final retirement from the stage), Mdlle. Vaneri, Madame Laura Baxter, Mdlle. Maria Brunetti (from the Grand Opera Paris, her first appearance in this country), and Madame Alboui; Mdlle. Lotti della Santa (her first appearance at Her Majesty's Theatre), Mdlle. Dell'Anese, Mdlle. Nardi, and Madame Maria Cabel (Prima Donna of the Opera Comique, Paris,) Madame Borghi Mamo (her first appearance in this country,) and Mdlle, Tttiens, Signor Mongini, Signor Belart, Signor Corsi, Signor Mercuriali, Signor Soldi, Signor Giuglini, Signor Everardi (of the Imperial Italian Operas of Vienna and St. Petersburgh, his first appearance in this country), Signor Aldighieri, Signor Fellar, (his first appearance,) and Signor Sebastiano Rouconi, (of the Regio, Turin, La Pergola, Florence, 4c.,) Signor Uossicr, Signor Castelli, and Signor Violetti, Directors of the music, Compo-ers and Conductors—Mr. Benedict and Signor Arditi. Principal Violins—Herr Molique, and Mr. Henry Blagrove. Leader of the Ballet—Signor Bollilli (Musical Director for the Theatre Bologna.) The Militury Band of the Grenadier Guards, under the direction of Mr. D. Godfrey. Suggestiore—Signor Foutana. Regisseur —Signor Grua.

Opera, Vienna, his first appearance,) and M. Durand. Maitre e compositeur de Ballet—Signor Borri (of the principal Theatre in Italy.)

With a repertoire so extensive and attractive as that of Her Majesty's Theatre, an assemblage of talent so remarkable, and with so magnificent a theatre, in every way peculiarly adapted to the various performances, theDireotor confidently looks to the nobility and the public for support. To fulfil tho conditions entailed, in carrying on so vast an establishment, requires more than oommon energies and common resources; and it it only by liberal assistance from the patrons of art, among the aristocracy and tho public that any good result can follow; while no labour, effort, or expense will be spared to rendor the performances of the highest excellence.

The whole will be produced under the immediate superintendence of J. R.
