IX. Proposed by Mr. Dorrell and seconded by Mr. Goss.—That the thanks of the meeting bo oiTered to the committee of the Royal Academy of Music for the kind permission to assemble in the concertroom of that institution.

The unanimous thanks of the meeting were then voted to Mr. Lucas for his able conduct in the chair.

Mr. Harold Thomas.—At the last general meeting of the Philharmonic Society, Mr. Harold Thomas was elected a member.

Herr Richard Wagner is about to give a series of concerts and operatic performances at the Th6atre-Italien, in Paris.

Mr. Horsley's " Gideon."—A full, and " full dress," rehearsal of Mr. Charles Horsley's new oratorio, Gideon, took place on Thursday evening at St. James's Hall, preparatory to its performance at the approaching Glasgow Festival. Nearly fifteen hundred persons were present, and the greatest interest seemed to be excited for the success of the new work. The solo singers were Madame Clara Novello, Miss Witham, Mrs. Lockey, Messrs. Sims Reeves, Lockey, and Weiss. Of course we cannot venture to pronounce critically on the merits of so grave a composition, after a solitary trial. The opinion of the majority of the audience, however, was unanimous, and at the end of the performance Mr. Horsley was summoned to appear, and received with loud and long-continued cheering.

Liverpool(From our own Correspondent)—The adjourned annual meeting of the proprietary of the Liverpool Philharmonic Society was held on Monday, at the Cotton Sales Room, Mr. P. G. Heyworth presiding. The report, which had been printed and circulated amongst the proprietors, was taken as read. The following are extracts :—

"The expenditure of the society has slightly increased during the past year, but the excess has arisen from the extraordinary outlay required for rcpnirs consequent upon painting and decorating the hall. The Committee have much pleasure in drawing the attention of proprietors to tho increased sum received from the sale of extra tickets, showing that the concerts have proved more attractive to the public. Tho proprietors will also notice the increased sum received for the letting

of the hall. Six stalls have been forfeited to the society for the nonpayment of the year's subscription; there now remain two boxes and 251 stalls the property of the society. The praotical members havo rendered very valuable services during the past year, and your committee havo pleasure in recommending that a resolution be passed embodying the thanks of the society. Your committee have again to record the efficiency and zeal displayed by Mr. Henry Suddlow in the discharge of his duties as secretary and treasurer. Referring to their circular to the proprietors of October 12, 1859, regarding the state of the roof, the committee havo to announce that Messrs. Tite and Clifton's detailed report has just been received, in which they repeat their opinion that the existing condition of the hall is perfectly secure, but they recommend a periodical inspection, and propose certain remedies in tho event of any weakness being hereafter detected.

"Your committee recommend that twelve concerts, all full dress, be given durnig the present year, and that tho subscription be as follows:—Boxes and stalls, £3 3s; gallery stalls, £2; gallery, £1; annual subscribers to the stalls, £4 4a. They also propose that proprietors should be allowed to transfer their right of entree for the season to resident gentlemen, upon payment of 5s. as before; and that any resident gentleman, approved of by the committee, and not in business for himself, should be allowed the privilege of purchasing a ticket, or making use of a member's ticket at tho subscription concerts, upon payment of 10s. 6d. for the year, in accordance with the resolution passed at the annual meeting in January, 1856.

"The members of committee who retire by rotation, but who are re-eligible, are as follows:—Francis Braun, Esq., Louis Grvining, Esq., Benjamin Heywood Jones, Esq., H. W. Meade King, Esq., A. G-. Eurtz, Esq., James Lister, Esq., C. W. Neumann, Esq., Henry Rankin, Esq., James Smith, Esq. But as the practical members, in accordance with their privilege, have nominated Mr. Rankin to represent them on the committee, only eight other gentlemen can be elected.

"The financial statement showed a balance against the society of £126 Ids. Gd."

The report and accounts were adopted, and the thanks of the society given to the practical members. The Chairman moved that twelve subscription full-dress concerts be given during the year.

Mr. R. King said it was thought, last year, when the committee fixed to have eight full-dress and four undress concerts, that the undress concerts would be availed of by the subscribers and others, but they had been disappointed. The tickets had been given away to people they had not been in the habit of seeing at the full-dress concerts.

Mr. R. Walmsley called attention to the exertions made within the last few years to pay off tho debt, in which they had been successful, and did not see why, with a reduced cost, they should pay the same subscription. Another thing working against the interests of the society was the gradual lapsing of shares into the proprietors' hands through the non-payment of subscriptions. This year there had been six, last year eight, and the previous year three. Since 1848 or 1849 there were thirty or forty shares less paying subscriptions. Gentlemen who allowed themselves to lose their shares only did so because they could get an equal quality of music at a less cost. A reduced subscription would benefit the society. As to the letting of the hall, it had only been used two or three times, owing to the high price, which the majority wtre unwilling to pay. He "proposed, as an amendment, that subscriptions during the ensuing year be two guineas and a-half for stalls, and that no change be made in any portion of the arrangement. Mr. Sharpe seconded the amendment.

The Chairman thought such remarks tended to damage their property. A great many stalls were forfeited, some from holders becoming bankrupts, or proprietors deceased. As to extra expenses, they had been increased by joiners' and plasterers' work, &c, coosequent on the decoration of the hall, besides coal and gas.

Mr. H. Banner thought it might be well to consider whether they could not witli profit let the building at a less cost. Fifty pounds was a large sum, and they could not compete with St. George's Hall when they made such charges.

The Chairman replied that the committee were not desirous of making the hall too common. They wished to make it select.

Mr. H. "W. M. King said that tho question as to letting the hall had been under consideration, and the committee would agree with some of the remarks that had been made. But the Philharmonic could never compete with St. George's Hall, seeing that the latter paid no rent.

The amendment was lost by a large majority, and the original motion carried. Some conversation followed as to the price of stalls, which the chairman stated to be the same as last year, 18 guineas. The committee for the ensuing year were then appointed, and after a vote of thanks to the chair the proceedings terminated.

Lxess{From a Correspondent).—Dr. Mark and his Little Men drew nearly 3,000 persons at the Town Hall, last Saturday, when the annual Jurenile Night was given by the Town Hall Concert Society. "With the exception of The Messiah night on Christmas Eve, this is the largest audience ever drawn at a concert in tho Town Hall. Dr. Mark's visits here are always looked forward to with pleasure, and his juvenile band really play capitally. Miss Clara Wight sang two songs with excellent taste, and was warmly encored in "I cannot mind my •wheel."

DEAMATIC DOTTINGS.
(From a Melodramatic Contributor.)

I Must plead guilty to an inbred weakness for tracing effect to canse. I do not remember the time when it did not, in a greater or less degree, influence the waking moments of my life. But here I am simply about to record one little example of this weakness, and it will serve as a key to the general tenor and habit of my being.

When a boy, I was deeply struck by the horror exemplified in the souls of most pious persons at the mere mention of the ominous words: "theatre " — " opera " — " play "—" stage "— "boxes" (not collecting)—"pit" (not bottomless)—"gallery" (not chapel). Knowing very little then what those terms really signified, so soon as opportunity offered, I set myself to attempt the discovery, with an ardour that would have done honour to Columbus in his search for a new continent. My first essay being made in a very provincial theatre, and my exchequer compelling me to patronise the lofty region of the gods, which was peculiarly airy above and around, successfully producing the effect of a huge pair of bellows, defying sound to reach our elevated position, I returned with little addition to my knowledge on the point; whilst the little I did get served to stimulate my "young idea" into a still stronger desire to "shoot."

I pass silently over the lapse of time during which I fed the flame of inquiry by all possible means lying in my path; and few and far between they were. Till, having amassed a sufficient sum wherewith to purchase Shakspere (ah! unhappy thought—my "uncle" has him now !), yes, Shakspere entire —and the reader must remember there were then no " People's Editions" to be heard of, far less bought. Here, then, was the cause of the effect I had so long been in search of. Oh, but I had been more fortunate than Diogenes—I did find my honest man. 1 perused the ever-living, ever-mighty bard with a relish I shall never again experience over another author, past, present, or future. I imagined myself standing in the presence of something more than human—a demi-god at least. I marked and marvelled how he played upon the heart-strings of proud humanity, and bid them give out their true and proper sound— its too-weak will unable to resist him. Then could I understand the why and wherefore those pharisees, hypocrites, shied so terribly whenever anything having reference to the temple of Momus crossed their line of vision. Yes! yes! time and circumstances had thrown mo much in the way of the soi-dislant saints, and I could well understand how they were unable to sit within such walls bon gre I I could easily fancy how, like the Queen of Denmark—though from a cause not equally foul, indeed, yet for a cause — they would mentally, at least, exclaim:—

"Oh, speak no more,
These words like daggers enter in mine ears.
No more, sweet Hamlet!"

Oh! no! The walls of a conventicle, doubtless, may be pleasing; and pulpit platitudes, from whence come weekly absolution without extra payment, makes sweetest music to such dwarfish minds. But, heavenly powers! hold not the "mirror up to nature!" Show not the "very age and body of the time" to such as these; lest, like the king, in terror they inquire, "Have you heard the argument—is there no offence in it i" Solomon has put on record the truism (with exceptions), " He that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow," and these have a sufficiency of the yet coveted product, knowledge, to influence them in religiously shunning the temple of the great philosophical poet, fearing that the combination of the two would so increase as inevitably to sink them down into perdition. Yet, Iago-like, should there remain sufficient courage within them to peruse my dottings, will they not, in whining accents, cry, "You charge us most unjustly!" W. D.

'Mid wintry frost and snow it blows;
And opes its jwrtals pure and fair.
When winds have swept the gay parterre.
Just like a true and constant friend,
Whose faith no storms of life can bend;
Not the more friend of summer day.
But tlrm wheu joy hath passod away.

This flower is like the joys that shine.

In sorrow's hour and life's decline.

When youth hath passed and pleasure flown.

And sad the spirit sighs alone;

Then marvel not that thus I twfne

My thoughts around this gift of thine,

Aud muse on hopes and joys that hist,

And bloom through lifo'«* most piercing blast."

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

That struggles to forget her.
My love I know will seem

A wayward, boyish folly ;
But, ah; it was a dream

Most sweet, most melancholy.
Were mine the world's domain,

To me 'twerc fortune bettor
To be a boy again,

And dream of Margaretta.
Oh ! mem'ry of the past,

Why linger to regret her?
My first love was my last,
And that is Margaretta.

"OH! TAKE ME TO THY HEART AGAIN!"

Poetry by Jessica Rankin.
Price 2s.

Oh! take me to thy heart again!

I nover more will grieve thee:
AIL 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 broken.

Oh! take me to thy heart again.

I think how very sad and lone

This Ufa would be without thee;
For all the joys my heart hath known

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

That wounded thee so blindly;
And bo once more the gentle guide

Who smiled ou mo so kindly.

Theu take me to thy heart again.

"I'M NOT IN LOVE, REMEMBER."

Poetry by Jessica Rankin.

Price 2s.

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

Aud why no pleasures charm me?
It is not Love torments mo so:
I scorn tho wily urchin's how,

His arrows cannot harm me ]

I try to sing—my voice is sad!

I sleep 1 bnt then 'tis just as bad-
Such gloomy things 1 dream on!

Can you not tell? nor you f nor you?

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

I sometimes think, if " J know who"
Were here, fte'd tell mo what to do,

To bid the demon slumber t
Could I but hear his voice again,
I'm ture 'twould cheer my heart—but then,
*■ I'm not in love, remember!"

I'm not in love, remember.
