tion were admirable, and not possible to be improved upon. It was the largest Organ witness had ever seen, It"1 ',0 ■'■"illy could not form an estimate of its cost, neither would he ihuose to be tied down to a contract in the construction of an instrument so large and peculiar as to its situation, a part of which could not be erected without enormous expense. The builder has certainly spared no expense or exertion to render his work perfect. The Organ Weighs About Mhett Tons; witness could put no price upon such an instrument, and no man in the kingdom could do so. By comparison with the amount witness received for the Brighton organ (that in His Majesty's Pavilion) witness conceives the plaintiffs' demand very reasonable.

Mr. Gauntlett had seen that portion of the organ which had been constructed according to the first plan of SirKobert Smirke, and had also seen, tried, and examined the York organ as it now is. It is now as to its conformation totally a different organ. In magnitude and mechanism it is unquestionably without rival in this country or any other. The effect of the pedule is astounding, although witness has heard a more brilliant quality of tone than that produced from the manuals.* The mechanism is very beautiful and complete, particularly the movement relative to the wind, which is perfectly unique in its construction and effect. Would consider any departure from the builder's original draft as involving a very serious expense in an instrument so large and complicated in its details. The reverend defendants called their organist and organ tuner; also a provincial organ builder who had repaired the old organ, and a London builder who had not seen the new one. Also a parish organist who had been engaged formerly in trade as a dealer in barometers. Dr. Camidge proved that the old organ had originally cost £1800 and had been repaired at an expense of £1200 more. Considers the organ as complete as possible, and should take it altogether as the finest in the world; witness certainly never heard such an organ, and considers it full a third larger than Birmingham. The scale of the pipes are as large as the room would allow. Considers £2500 a very fair price for the organ as it stands at present: but witness on being shown his own letter to Lumley Saville, in which he writes, "I firmly believe that the labour and material will require the whole sum,' retracts that opinion and could not consider it a remunerating price. "Witness considers the plaintiffs executed the work very amply, and thinks if they had proceeded as on a close contract, plaintiffs might have screwed him in the work. Says

* The reason (says a contemporary critic) is obvious. Dr. Camidge has multiplied the unison stops (diapasons and reeds), but forgotten to do the same with the compound stops. The old organ was built by Blyth, in 1803, and subsequently repaired and enlarged at a total expense of £2,000. Here is a list of the stops:—

CHOIR OROAK.
Dulcinna

Stopped Diapason
Principal
Flute

GREAT ORGAN.

Open Diapason (3 ranks)

Twelfth
Fifteenth
Nazaral

Sesquialtra (3 ranks)
Furniture (3 ranks)
Cornet (5 ranks)
Trumpet
Clarion

Fifteenth

Cremona or Bassoon

SWELL ORGAN.

Open Diapason
Dulciana

Stopped Diapason
Principal
Trumpet
Oboe

Sesquialtra (4 ranks) In this organ are thirteen unison stops; and compound stops making fifteen ranks, besides a twelfth and nazaral. In the present organ there are only nineteen ranks of compound stops (five of which are in the swell) to stand up against twenty-three unison stops (namely, fourteen diapason, and nine unison, reeds). Let our readers balance the weight of a modern diapason with that of Blyth's scale, and the result must be as clear as a sunbeam. Dr. Camidge should add clarions, octave clarions, twelfths, larigots, tierces, and mixtures almost ad libitum. It may he remarked that the list of stops given to the York organ, in "Bellerby's York Guide," is most inaccurate, and not at all to be relied upon. We allude to the edition of 1832.

the Dean was "rough and rnde" to the plaintiff Hill, and admits him to have been hasty and grumbling that the organ was not erected at an earlier period.

Ward, a country organ builder, deposed to repairing the old organ, and his astonishment at the new. Considered it impossible to make the large pipes speak when he first saw them. The York organ, witness thinks, is as fine a piece of mechanism as any workman could turn out.

Other unimportant testimony was adduced to which it is unnecessary to refer. The verdict gives the plaintiffs nearly £4000. They are supposed to lose about £1500 or £"2000 by the transaction.

Worcester Festival. — There is to be one novelty at the Worcester Festival, which takes place, be it recollected, the week after next, — this is, "The Erf-King's Daughter," a ballad, or cantata, by Herr Gade. This should recommend the concert at which it will be given to all who are tired of scraps, tawdry ballads, and thirty-times-told opera songs, with the opera dresses and scenery left out.

Eppinc. (From a Correspondent). — On Thursday evening, August 30th, a highly successful concert was given here, in aid of the funds for the completion of the Epping and Sheydon Garnon National Schools. The programme was of a superior kind; the first part sacred, the second secular, and was entrusted to the following artistes:— Mad. AVeiss, Mad. Gilbert, Miss Palmer, Mr. AVilbye Cooper, and Mr. Weiss; at the pianoforte Mr. Alfred Gilbert. Through the exertions of the Rev. J. Tuck and Mrs. Tuck, the room was filled by the elite of the neighbourhood, who

toutitiod llteir -p-wUificatinn \±y numorowa encores and by retaining

their seats until the very last note of the concert.

Belfast.(From our own Correspondent.)—At the consecration of the Rev. Dr. Dorian, the coadjutor Roman Catholic Bishop of Belfast, the following programme was performed at St. Malachy's in an excellent manner by Mr. R. Sutton Swahy and the choir under his command : —

Veni Creator, Gregorian; Kyrie, Gloria, and Credo, Haydn; Sanetus, Mozart; Tantum Ergo, Spanish; Agnus Dei, Cranisic j Te Deum, Webb; Overture, Athaliah, Handel; Offertoire (No. 5), L. Wely; Larghetto, in F (Symphony), Haydn; Fugue, J. S. Bach; March, David, C. Horsley.

The soloists were Mrs. Ling and Mr. Cramsie, who acquitted themselves most creditably. Mr. Swahv deserves great praise for the marked improvement in the choir since it has been under his management.

Operatic Music In Germany. — There is no novelty in German dramatic music to be heard of. At Frankfort they have been playing Der Vampyr (with an ovation to Hcrr Marschner, who is said to have designs on the Grand Opera at Paris, and for the moment is sojourning in the free town) and Der Freisehutz; at Carlsruhe, Mozart's Titus, without one singer adequate to the music. There, it may be recollected, Herr W agner's Tristan was to be produced last year. It was put in rehearsal; but after many weeks of laborious study, was abandoned as too uncouth —too little like music to be endured — or learnt. His day, we believe, and, for the interests of art, hope, is done in his own country. Whether he will revolutionise Paris, under imperial protection, remains to be seen. In the theatrical line, Fraulein Gossmann, a comic actress, is turning the heads of young and old in Frankfort by her lively performances.

Agencies.—Our intention of offering a few remarks on some of the morals and manners of musical administration has not been laid aside, though its fulfilment was deferred to a time when no possible personality could be connected with what was said. Our reason is, the universally reported increase of a system of indirect dealing, which works ill for the art, ill for the artist, ill for the public: to come to the point, the system of agency and douceur. In no other world of selling and buying (says a contemporary) are these found satisfactory, Doth in one important feature being distinct from all business done by commission openly avowed. This feature is the secresy of the transaction, which naturally brings on an abuse of public good faith, placing it at the mercy of the artist who can bid highest for the' agent's good word,—and of the agent who, by producing ware not worth its reputation for a "consideration," inevitably renders the task of merit more delicate in its scruples, more averse to all intermediate transactions,— possibly, too, less ample in its means. "While we would fain protect the artist struggling upwards, we are bound in continuation to ask whether the artists who have arrived are themselves clear of aiding and abetting so thoroughly vicious a system? What is to be said of the performer who, having before him the world of good music where to choose, prefers to perform, on the appeal of a per-centage, or payment in full, music from which pickings and perquisites are to be gleaned? Simply, that in all proceedings of the kind they cease to be artists, and become hired agents in their own turn. It is only the mediocre or the mean among the composers who will bid for such spurious protection, by extending which the public again suffers, and the standard of taste is inevitably depreciated. Much has been said by those before the public concerning the venality of the press. Were this true to the extent complained of, have those who resort to indirect influence on the one hand, or on the other to covert payment, a right to complain? We put the case, in all its strength, before all real musicians. To them it will be known that any amount of evidence could be brought in justification of our broaching a question as important as it is delicate.

St. Martin's Hall.—The disaster at St. Martin's Hall deprives London, for a time at least, of one of its best concert halls. We are sorry to see it stated that Mr. Hullah has lost a portion of hia musical library by the fire.—Athenatum.

Cbcmbs Of News.—Mr. Gye has gone over the Alps, it is said, in search of tLo RlneV Swan, alias a real Italian pritm donna who can sing.—Herr Hiller, though cordially invited to Leipsig to fill the place vacated by Herr Rietz, as chief at the Gewandhaus Concerts, declines leaving Cologne. In this .we hold him wise. Herr Reinecke, some seven years ago known as a pianist of promise, has been appointed in his stead.—" They say" that Herr Reinthaler is composing again; we should have had something new from him long ago.—What, by the way, has become of Herr Gade? He might have melted into the empty air for any "sound himself hath made" in Europe lately.—M. Bataille is about to leave Paris for the Grand Opera at Brussels,—a real loss this to the French capital.—The Belgian capital is at last to possess an organ worth playing on, a new instrument of first class having been bespoken for the Palais Ducal, in which great musical celebrations are to be held.

The above Songs form Nos. 1, 2, and 3 of Vocal Illustrations of Shelley.

"Mr. Santley was encored in one of the thoroughly picturesque aii<1 poetical settings of Shelley, by Mr. J. W. Davison, mentioned a week or two since. His song, * Rough wind that moanest loud,' is a thoroughly good song."—Athcneeum.

'* Madame Saintnn-Dolhv's greatest efforts were called forth by Mendelssohn's • Night* song, and Mr. J. \V. Davison's * False friend, wilt thou smile or wep' (from Shelley's 'Cenci'), to both of which she did the amplest justice. The latter work is one of the most poetical and beautiful of the * Vocal Illustrations of Shelley,* composed by Mr. Davison many years ago, and which, though rarely heard, possess far more sterling merit than nine-tenths of the most admired songs of the dav. A more intellectual treatment of the words could not well be imagined. Mr. Davison has completely caught the spirit of the poetry, and heightened its beauty by tin* potent ch irms which belong only to the sister'art. 'False friend, wilt thou smile or weep,' sung to perfection by Madame Sainton-Dolby, was enthusiastically applauded."
