THEll FETE CHA.iETErL
Glorious from dawn to darknesa, yesterday
seemed to have been one of those days sometimes
vouchsafed to overworked, tired humanity, half
as a testimony of what Eden was, half as a token
of what Elysium will be. And it was duly appre
ciated. Whoever could for the time throw off the
hard bonds of business found their way to the
Fair Grounds, there to inhale new life with the
balmy air, and to be reminded by the sports there
gling onthat this is not altogether a work
day world, and to remember, in reflecting on
t ie object of the entertainment, that it Is not
totally a self-h &Ae. Whether one or all
of these motives actuated the various indi
viduals who yesterday attended the fete,
whether it was the day, the amusements, or
a desire to aid a most worthy object, certain it
is that a much larger crowd than the managers
had anticipated asseImoled on the grounds. Ar
rive d there at about 4 o'clock, we proceeded to
die grand stand, via the raquette ground, already
tilled with players, eager to begin. The ladies
were out in full force, the stand being, as some
one at our elbow suggested, a perfeet galaxy of
beauty. In justice to ourself, be it stated that
we instantly turned to administer a severe reproof
to our friend for his insane attempt at wit, when
lur astention was attracted by the appearance of

They were as tollows: C. H. blocomb's bsv

Irove their own hor.es, except Mr. Smith, who
!seced his in the hadMs of Mr. T. M. Scott. The
race was to be nmle :.*rt. At the tap of the
di ult the horses got elt west together, the choest
Lnts a little behind and Mr. Fortier's team ahead.

their Lorees gaits, and their own abilities as well

well, particularly Masters Foley and Mlltenber

last succeeded, amid much clapping of hands,
in making the leap. After about a half hour's
exbhition the boys were called up to the stand

Foley had proved himself best, Masters Mklten

Mo/nar' Twtl.rTra Mass.-It has rarely fallen
to us in co-r line of duty to record a more bril
t;act gathering or a more completely soocessfnl
musical entertainment than that given on Wednes
doy evening at St. Alphonsos Hall. The spacious
hall, although one would have supposed it fully
ad qluate to the accommodation of all the guests
who might present themselves, was, nevertheless,.
so crowded that many, we learn, were unable to
obtain seats. The performance whioh,annouueed
to be under the direction of Prof. La Hache, had
caused so great an assemblage, was Mozart's
twelfth Mass, that great masterpiece of the imn
mortal composer. To say that fall joetice was
done it by the choruses, composed of singers se
lected from the different choits of the
city, and by the magnificbnt orchestra
of the French opera, would be saying
nne too little, ard we ar, confident that every
lover of mnu'i,, as well i.s every critic who was in
that vast'sudierae, will unite with us in very
pleasert r-.:imbrances of the occasion. The or
pbr n children of St. Elizabeth Asylum, for the
benefit of which the entertainment was given.
sang the opening chorus Regina Coeli very
sweetly, and by their appearance too, added not a
little to each visitor's satisfaction in having to a
smaoll extent stretched out a helping hand toward
tl.e:. The Benedictus was sung with much
power and pathos by Miss G-s, solo soprano
ot Trinity, in the absence of M'me Back. who
was prevented by indisoosition from attending.
We congratulate Mr. LaHache upon the success
which attended his instructions, and hope thatat
no distant day there may be offered a second op
portunity of hearing that divine music.
Acancrv or Mtsic.-In company with every
ore else who attended the Academy last evening,
we experienced a rare enjoyment in the produc
tion of the new comic drama, "The Female
Privateers." and laughed heartily at Lake School
cralt's female attire, his smirking smiles and
ludicrous singing of "Single gentlemen, how do
you do !'" A number of young girls, wearied
with the u,rni of the drawing-room, determine to
go to sea, and do so as sailors on the Jolly Por
poise. Before they know it, they find themselves
engaged, not as young ladies generally are is a
miutrin:oial alliance, but in a naval fight, and this
fsIt gives to the closing scene an effect which we
have rarely seen surpassed on the stage. Hot shells,
hie size. come hissing through the air, fall on the
dic k, and blow now one, now another, of the jolly
tals sky high;" while others drag ofi the wounded
