But for this her " Qui la voce," like " Son vergin vezzosa," and all the rest, in short, would have been perfect.

The music of Giorgio is too low for Signor Ronconi, who, however, sings it artistically, and acts the part of the old Puritan with graphic truthfulness. Signor Graziani's fine voice is heard to great advantage in the music of Riccardo, although it is sometimes too deep for his register. The first movement of the cavatina, " Ah non sempre," is better suited to him than the cabaletta, which demands more even and fluent execution. The Arturo of Signor Gavdoni is one of his best performances. The amorous and yet heroic Cavalier is well impersonated by this gentleman, whoso singing is invariably careful and finished. In the last scene Signor Gardoni rises with the situation. The small part of Henrietta was extremely well sustained by Madame Tagliafico. The band and chorus were faultless, and the performance thoroughly enjoyed by the audience. The house was but moderately well attended.

On Tuesday Dinorah was given, when Her Majesty attended, and at the end of the opera inspected the show of flowers in the new Floral Hall. The exhibition elicited unqualified admiration from Her Majesty, the Prince Consort, and a numerous suite.

On Thursday, Fra Diavolo was given for the last time this season.

WORDS FOR MUSIC*

HlPPT swallow! heaven's darling,

Blest above nil birds that fly!
Blackbird, linnet, finch, or starling
Winter's blast must brave or die;
But the swallow
Still doth follow
Balmy summer through the sky.

What, though still for ever rowing,

Parting never brings a sigh,
Tender friends and mate so loving
Wander with thee through the sky;
Where the beaming
Sun is gleaming
There thy home and country lie.

I, alas! who, like the swallow.

Journey brighter days to find,
Still a fleeting phantom follow.
Leaving friends and love behind.]
Skies may lower,
Sleets may shower;
Summer is where hearts arc kind.

C. L K.

TO MARIETTA ALBONI.

Song has two spells—the one a heav'nly birth, That carries with its strong and upward flight, As with an eagle's clutch and wing of might,

The panting spirit far beyond the earth; —

It sweeps the skies, and belts the star-paved girth Of that broad road, where travel day and night Sublime and unapproachable delight,

Measureless sadness, or Titanic mirth.

The other lowlier, yet not less divine —

A child of love and laughter, smile and tear,

Softly or sadly fans the soul to sleep;

A rapture not so boundless, though more deep;
A joy less mighty, yet a bliss more dear ; —

And that, sweet voice, the song whose spell is thine.

M. Adolphe Henselt, the well-known pianist and composer, has received, in his capacity as Inspector-General of the Musical Establishments of St. Petersburg, the Cross of Knight of the Order of St. Wladimir. It is the first time that this decoration, which the Emperor confers in person, and which is generally given to persons of high rank, lias been bestowed on an artist.

Histrionic Population Op Europe.—According to statistical returns, there are now in Europe 18,140 actors, 21,609 actresses, and 1,733 theatrical managers. The number of persons connected in various ways with dramatic establishments amounts altogether to 82,216.

Heer Koppitz, a performer on the flute, of continental reputation, has just arrived in London. He has not yet appeared in public, but is, we understand, to play at the Philharmonic Society's concert, on the 2nd July—the last of the season. Having had an opportunity of hearing him, we may assure our musical readers— those especially who are amateurs of the flute—that his performance is calculated to give them an extraordinary treat. He not only plays with a brilliancy of tone and execution which we hare never heard equalled, but possesses the singular facility of producing sequences of double notes, forming regular harmony in two parts—a thing hitherto considered impossible on that instrument. —Illustrated London News.

LAST HOURS OF ALBERT SMITH.

Until nine years of [age Albert Smith was so delicate and of so fragile an appearance, that he was nicknamed by a friend "Little China." After this time, however, he became strong and so healthy, that, to use a common expression — probably more true in his case than in many others to whom it has been applied — he knew not whnt a day's illness was until December last.

On the 22nd of December, 1859, after giving his entertainment as usual at the Egyptian Hall, he returned home, and occupied himself till one o'clock in the morning by hanging pictures in a new room. He retired to rest without a complaint of any kind. Early in the morning of the 23rd he had a convulsive seizure while asleep, and from this lit' passed into a state of profound coma, with stertorous breathing; ronsing from this coma after nearly an hour's interval, he became violently excited in manner, hut was unable to speak. The period of excitement lasted for twenty minutes, and was followed by another fit, this by coma, and again by violent excitement. He was bled freely by his medical attendant, Dr. Ree, the back of the nock was blistered, and sinapisms applied to the feet and legs; but the severity of the convulsions, coma, and excitement continued until two o'clock r.M., the patient passing through a series of them, about eight in the hour. After taking Indian hemp the convulsions ceased, the excitement diminished, but, with the exception of two or three words, the power of articulation was lostThere was no paralysis of cither face or limbs; there was no albuminuria. Sleep followed in the evening, and about midday on the 24th the faculty of speech returned, and from this time there was rapid nmendment. Within a few days his repeated expression was," I nercr felt better in my life; I am only surprised I have not lost strength."

On Friday, the 11th of May, Mr. Smith was exposed to wet, and suffered in the evening from " cold." On the 12th he was again more severely exposed, getting " wet through," and did not change his clothes for three hours, and on the evening of this day he coughed much, and felt weak. On the Sunday he rested; bnt on Monday resumed his duties at the hall. He felt weak, wheezed in his breathing, could scarcely lie down at night, lost all appetite, but continued his avocations daily and nightly until Saturday afternoon. May 19th, and until lh«' time had no medical advice. On Satnrday he was seen by Dr- Kt*. who found generally diffused bronchitis, with dulness cm percussion at the base of the right lung posteriorly, and fine crepitation in the same locality. The pulse was laboured, not more than eighty-six per minute. The obstruction to the respiration was great. The expectoration, very little of which was raised, was sanguinolent; the face pallid; the tongue extremely foul, and breath very offensive. Cupping-glasses were very freely applied to the back of the chest, and blisters were raised by strong acctum cantharidis; at the same time a mixture of squills, nitric ether, and ammonia was given every four or five hours.

Delirium supervened on the night of Saturday, bnt on Sunday there was slight relief to the respiration. The stomach now rejected everything, and continued to do so until Monday, the 21st. On tlii»day the patient resolved to get up and attempt his performance at the Egyptian Hall, and in the afternoon dressed himself for this purpose. He was persuaded to relinquish the idea, and was seen in consultation by Dr. Reynolds and Dr. Ree. The vomiting had now ceased, after taking n dose of a mixture containing a small quantity of dilute hydrocyanic acid. The bronchitis was general throughout the whole of the thorax, on either side, and both above and below. There was fine'mucous and subcrepitant rhoncus. Expiration was extremely prolonged. In the left subclavicular region, where there was slight pain, frictiou sound was audible. The base of the right lung was dull on percussion, and, except when a strong effort at respiration was made, was silent, no air appearing to find entrance. The pulse was laboured, and only eighty per minute; the surface cool; the face pallid; the tongue very foul; and the bowels confined. There had been no sleep for several nights. Complained of prostration. From several causes, no examination of the urine could be obtained. The chest was enveloped in spongio-piline, wrung out of hot water; and at night, calomel, colocynth, and opium were given: beef-tea, sherry, and Seltzer water were taken freely and ad libitum.

Tuesday, May 22nd, nine A.M.—Some sleep in the night, but much wandering; condition of the chest much the same as at last report, but air appears to enter rather more freely; complains of great prostration, but says his breathing is easier; the pulse is slow and laborious; the surface dusky; no headache; no pain. Ammonia and decoction of bark, with tincture of squills, were ordered to be taken every four hours; and brandy, beef-tea, and wine with beaten eggs, were given and taken freely.

In the afternoon at six o'clock he was seen by Dr. Burrows, Dr. Reynolds, and Dr. Rcc. By this time the bowels had acted very freely; the chest condition was the same as in the morning, but there was less feeling of prostration, and the aspect was somewhat improved. Another blister was ordered to the right side, the mixture was to be continued, and calomel and opium to be given every six hours.

At eleven P.m., he was again seen by Dr. Ree, when he was about

Cavbbidge.—The festival holden last Tuesday in the chapel of King's College, in aid of a fund for providing for the wants of •widows and orphans of members of cathedral nnd collegiate choirs, was a complete success. The committee who worked so hard may congratulate themselves that no untoward occurrence marred the effect of their labours. From first to last there was no " hitch ;" and the most eager promoter of the scheme could not, if he had had the power of selection, have provided a day more brilliant and enjoyable. It was bright, warm, and dry: and the eye was continually refreshed by that luxury of green which Cambridge boasts

Monday that something was "looming in the future"

The early comers had to wait an hour or more at the doors before they could get in. The doors were opened at 11.

It takes a long time to fill King's College Chapel as it was filled on Tuesday, through two small doors. On and on flowed the stream into the nave and the unreserved part of the choir. Speaking of the latter, one might have thought that every seat was filled long before there was the least break in the constant flow. "The cry was still, they come," even after the avenues had got choked up by crowds apparently looking in vain for a resting-place. Somehow or other, people got gradually shaken down into their places. Fresh forms were brought in, although we supposed every available form in Cambridge had already been seized, and the number of persons left without a seat was materially reduced. Meanwhile, by twelve o'clock, chaos was reduced to order, and the entire area presented a dense mass of living beings. The whole space could not be taken in by the eye from any part of the floor of the chapel: those in the choir could see only the choir, and those in the nave could see only the nave; but in this limited way, the sight was one not soon to be forgotten.

It was a few minutes past twelve when morning prayer began. The service was intoned by Mr. Beard, and the Provost re lessons. The order of the servioe was as follows :—

who were promenading the streets and the evening; and on Tuesday morning the early trains brought so many reinforcements that the question forced itself upon notice—how are they all to be seated? The arrangement was, that the doors should be opened at eleven: but it is not written in the history of festivals that people wait patiently until the appointed time. Before ten, streams began to converge towards the centre of attraction, the holders of blue tickets making their "way to the great gates of the college and the south door of the chapel, the entrance appointed for the nave; and the holders of red. nad pink tickets getting into the grounds by the gate near and into the choir by the north door of the chapel.

is not unknown to many; and if it were, we can frame no language which would convey a proper idea of it. Perhaps the best performed anthems were Professor Storndale Bennett's "Lord, who shall dwell in thy tabernacle ?" and Dr. Elvey's, " O be joyful in God." But the gem was Handel's "Hallelujah " chorus, which one can never hear without emotion.

Professor Bennett directed the performance throughout, except that Dr. Elvey, of Windsor, conducted his own anthem. Mr. Amps, organist of King's College, played the organ, assisted by Mr. Hopkins, organist of Trinity College, and Air. Garrett, organist of St. John's College. Members of the following choirs took part in the performance: St. Paul's, Westminster Abbey, Temple, Windsor (St. George's Chapel), Norwich, Peterborough, Lincoln, Ely, and the College chapels of Cambridge. The number of voices was 125. The number of persons accommodated in the choir, exclusive of Fellows and attendants, was 1,374; and in the nave 1,940; making a total of 3,314. The sum collected at the doors was 266i. 0s. 6d.,(of which 111. was in gold. This is an increase of about 34/. over the sum collected at the festival six years ago. After the proceedings in the chapel had terminated, the members of the various choirs were entertained in a sumptuous manner in the hall, at the expense of the college. Provision was made for 150. The Vice-Provost presided, and the Provost joined the party before they broke up. Professor Bennett and several members of the university were also present. Few things even in the chapel produced a finer effect than the "Non nobis, Domine," at this entertainment. To conclude, 80 policemen and attendants were entertained in the hall, after the choirs. —Cambridge Chronicle, May 26, 1860.
