Opera Music for the Plano.
Ian't there something in this "Opera Mtsic for
the Piano" that sounds like the ver'y thing itself?
It does to our ear. It is copied from the "Knick
erboeker Magazine :"
"List ! the piece is about to begin;
nsocrve Miss Introduction come in:
A "oddess in floutees, arid pinched at the waist,
A.:_! elook like a statue, embellished with paste.
11 tLe kevs that can be got at,
F the fingers straight are shot at.;
A.ien a soft and gentle tinkle,
Gentle as the rain-drop's sprinkle,
e, two. three, four,
-i, six-run ashore.
Then a stop
Now a r-:'h from :op to bottom,
e notes now, while we dot 'em;
amusic, for we've got 'em.
:, forward, up and down,
.1ke a ronkey or a clown;
N,w t e close-a gentle strike,
o d ever hear the like?
N v)egins a merry trill,
L a cricket in a mill;
w a short, uneasy motion,
a bed-bug at devotion,
Or a ripple on the ocean.
S.. the tingers skip about;
IeIar the notes as ther come ot
Liow they mingle in the tingle
Of the everlasting jingle ;
Like the hail-stones on a shingle
Or the ding-dong, dangle-dingle
Of a sheep-bell- double, single:
Now they come in wilder gushes;
Up and down the player rushes;
Quick as squirrels, or the thrush.es,
Darting round among tL.e bushes,
Making rattle, like the tushes
Of the s%ine, a-drhiking slushe3.
Now the keys begin to clatter,
Like a chorus on a platter,
Or a house., aid stirring batter,
Hear the niusic that they suatter,
Thoagh 'ti. flat and growing flattes;
All ii clatter, naught's the matter.
Bark ! the strains, for now we're at her
'er the music comes a change,
Now we take ano:,her range;
Every tone is w%ild and straigo.
Now there comes the lofty tumbling,
And the rumbling and the grumbling
O the thunder, from its slumbering
Just awaking. Now it's taking
To the quaking, like a fever-and-ague shaking;
Now it's mnking such a raking,
Evads are aching, something's breaking.
Goodness! gracious: ain't it wondrous?
Rolling round, above and under us,
Like old Vulcan's strokes so thunderous.
Now the rattle of the battle
Deepens deeper, and the cattle
Beilo-w louder, and the powder
Will be all expended soon.
Stich a clanging, whanging, banging,
Flam ! bang ! whang !
Heavens! how the music rang !
Ah! the ham ony so splendid
Is expended-all is ended.
Though I'm frighted, I'm delighted
With this finery and this.foppery
Of this modern music opera.
"Brieks" Pomeroy on Mosquitoes.
"Brick" Pomeroy of the LaCrosse (Wis.)
.Democrat gives the following as his experi
ence in getting mosquitoes intoxicated.
"Josh Billings" can't beat it:
MosQUIToEs 0N A BENDER.
Night before last, in order to sleep, we
placed a piece of raw beefstea'k on a plate at
the head of our bed. In the rrorning it was
suicked by the mosquitoes as dry as an old
sponge, and our skins saved at least two
thousand perforations. All about the room
in the morning were mosquitoes, plethoric
with blood, loaded till they could not fly.
We killed a few, but the job was sanguinary,
so we left them to their feast.
Last night in order to get over with the
screaming devils, we steeped half a pound of
beefstenk in some old rye whiskey, and left
it on a plate near the bed. Nothing like be
ing hosp itably inclined. In ten. minutes af
ter the light was extinguished, a swarm ofi
these- backbiting bill-posters made an ad
vaoce movement. One of them caressed us
sw,eetly on the nose-but:ent in hris bill
ther-e wvas a slap-a dead mosquito! Soon
we reard a tremendous buzzing about the
wi:sker soaked beef. The entire mosquito
famrily ~eamersinging in, and such an opera
good Lord deliver us! But they did not
diur u with bites, we fell asleep to be awa
kee1in :en minutes by the worst mosquito
conicert e-er editor, mortal, devil, angel, di
vine, Dtzchman, or any other man listened
We raised a laugh, and the greatest show
of the season was there to be seen. Every
mosquit o was drunk as a blind fiddler, and
such an uproarous night as the long-billed
wrhelps had, never was seen before this side
of--s.Lah!/ The worst antics! Some were
racing circus on the plate. One big fellow,
si L a belly like Falstaff, full of blood and
;Thisker, was dancing juba on the Bible,
w ie a~fat friend of his trlbe lay on her back
beatin~g the devil's dream on an invisible tam
borinme with one hind leg! Two more were
w'restling themselves on the footboard of the
bed, each with his bill stuck fast to the tim
ber. Another was tieing the legs of our pants
in a bow knot to tie about the neck of Anna~
Dickinson, which hangs against the wash
stand, while another red-stomached customer
-was tryinrg to stand on his head in the wash
All over the room were dIrunken mosquiitoes.
1ne long-b.illed, gzaunt representative, was
:-sing to raim the mueilage bottle full of news
<aper clippings. Another chap was drilling~
Shole th'rough a revolver handle a.nd singing
-My Mary Ann," while another was limping
.ross the window-sil in search of fresh air,
o the agonizing tune of-tramp-tramp
:amnp! 'ne lit tle ramn of a skeet was trying
jam the cock out of Gen. Butler's eye with
too,th-brush, as his picture hung beside
hnat of Kid, the pirate, anid a few other thieves.
Another drunken statesman of the mnosquitoe
-mily, retminded us of Zach. Chandler and
.'.s talking Russian to a lot of drunken corn
p.anlinos as they lay in a heap on a plate, while
.nother sat on the handle of a Bowie-knife,
doubled up with cramp in the stomach, and
trying to unite his tail with his bill, which
seeme~d like Lincoln's back-bone when Anna
iDickenson' said it wanted stiffening, lie was
a sick looking skeeter, and died in three min
utes after we saw him, her, or it, as the case
may be. Two others took a bath in the ink
stand. Another one, with a bill like the
devil's narrative, was trying to wind otir
watch with a pen-wiper, while another had
just died as he was sitting on the rim of a
dish in the room, trying to chant-"Mother,
I've comne home to die !" Poor skeeter. A
nme skeeter, "but 'twas a pity he drank."
An old veteran with a paunch fulh of 'alf and
'alf-blood and whiskey-sat on the table
reading Les Miserables, while his wife was
under the table trying to mend her br oken
wing with a limpsy tooth-pick. She looked
disgusted. Another one combed his hair
with a paper of pins, tied a piece of white
paper about his neck, pasted a five cent in
out of tbe window for John >. Cougb, or a
stomach pump. A worse behaved set of
huinmers we never saw. They have acted
fearful. About two thousand lie about dead,
but sadness seemed not to break in upon their
hilarious rioting upon blo,d and whiskey.
Half a dozen of them sat on our new hat play
ing draw poker, using worm lozengers for
checks, while one of them got clean bursted
by making a fifty dollar blind good on a four
flush which didn't fill! He will be apt to
wear cotton socks next winter, and keep
away from church on collection days.
Another sat on the top of a brandy bottle
reading Baxter's Call to the Unconverted,
while his partner lay dcad at his feet, evi
dentally forced to close doors by the failure
of Ketchum & Son, of New York! Six oth
ers were trying to hang one that looked like
a Copperhead to the corner of a match safe,
but as they were drunk and he sober, it is
not safe to bet on his being dangled. They
have eaten the beef-drunk the blood and
whiskey-drilled a plate full of holes-nod on
the centre table organized a Son of Malta
lodge, using a five -cent shin-plaster for a
blanket, in the act entitled the "Elevation of
Another red-bellied leader of the Miss Kece
ter family had a battalion of drunken bum
mers on the edge of a spittoon, watching him
jam a fur overcoat into his left ear. He was
foolish-foolish enough for a brigadier-general
or a member of Congress. A little cuss with
black legs, crimson stomach and double-joint
ed bill, was vomiting in a satin slipper, while
his wife, a sickly looking lady of her tribe,
was gnawing at the bed post, thinking it a
bologna. Another one, evidently an old maid,
sat under the sofa milking a cat, while her
sister was crowding a pair of woolen drawers
into her waterfall, singing in a subdued strain:
"Come rest in this bosom I"
We have applied for a season ticket-front
Another one, with a certificate of mariage
over his head, in the shape of a candle-mould,
was dancing a findango with two mosquito
virgins on a watch crystal, while a deacon in
one of their churches sat playing old sledge
with a cork-screw, to see which should go for
a gin cock-tail. An artistic delegate was
standing en h-is head inachampagne tunmb!er,
one hind leg run through his under jaw,
while with the other he was pointing out the
road to Richmond to a lot of skeets drunker
than himself, which were sitting dog fashion
on the pillow. We should say it was a gay
party-quietly so. Talk about shows, con
certs, dog fights, amputations, circusses, ne
gro funerals, draw poker, sparking, o- other
amusements, there is nothing to be compared
to a flock of mosquitoes on a bender. If you
don't believe it, fix them up a piece of beef
steak soaked in whiskey, and laugh your
sides sore at the antics the drunken warblers
FAsnIONABLE FEMININE GAMEsTERS.-In one
of my recent letters, I spake of gan>bling as
one of the vices of our fashionable women,
and I have since learned that it is practiced
in certain modish quarters far more than I had
supposed. In Fifth Avenue~ and .Fourtecnth
and Twenty-third streets, there are often par
ties of ladies from which the opposite sex are
sternly excluded, where the fair gamesters
play until daylight for large stakes; and it
not unfrequently happens that when their
purses are depleted, they put up their brace
lets, necklaces and watches as wagers. Some
of the feminine gamesters lose heavily, and
the desperate shifts-nio allusion to their ward
robes-to which they are put to conceal their
Icases and replace them, mat be fearfully de
A young woman, the daughter of one of
our most opulent citizens, was pointed out to
me last Saturday, in the Park, as a notorious
gambler, by one of her own sex, who inform
ed me she had parted with nearly $100,000
since she went to Saratoga, in July, and made
her doting papa believe che had expended the
sum in dress and charity.
The young woman in question is very pret
ty, not more than twenty; no one regarding
her pale, spirituelle face, her soft, blue eyes,
and gentle and reserved manner, would imagine
she had fallen a victim to one of the most dan
gerous vices. One mizht almost apply to her
the famous couplet that Pope employs for his
"If to her share some female errors fall,
Look on her face and you'll forget them all."
But then, the Duchess de Brinvillieres was
gentle and retiring in manner, and Lucretia
Borgia often looked like a sweet saint who had
lost her way to Heaven.

"Let me observe here :it was the fall of
Sumpter that produced on the instant the or
dinance of secession and filled Virginia with
troopr from the Gulf States to carry it before
the people. Its effects upon ordinary men
may be conceived by the influence it exerted
over General Lee. My father was authorizd
by the President and Mr. Cameron, Secretary
of War, to converse with General Lee and as
certain whether he would accept the command
of our army in the field. The latter was writ
ten for, and he met my father at my house,
where they conversed for an hour or more. It
was a few days before the ordinance was pas
sed General Lee concluded the conversation
by saying :'Secession was anarchy,' ard add
ed, 'if he owned the four millions of slaves in
the South, he would cheerfully sacrifice them
to the Unoin ; but he did not know how he
cold draw his sword on his native State. IIe
said he wo,uld see Gen. Scott on the subject
before he decided.' A commnittee from the
Virginia Convention, while the General and
my father conversed, were hunting him
through the city. They met on his leaving the
house. HIe repaired with them to consult
with the Convention, as I have since learned,
about some mode of settlement. The fall of
Sumpter settled the question for him and the

from a Confederate country maiden to a friend

And skip Jlong the Lee

ELorEmr," AND Divo*RcE&-:-The Indianapolis
correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial
An elopement which took place a couple of
months ago h;s borne disagreeable fruit. A
i young and headstrong girl, daughter of one of
the "first families," persisted, despite the protests
and entreaties of the parents, in marrying a hand
-some but rather wild young blade. She eloped,
married, returned, was reconciled, discovered an
incompatibility of temper, was divorced, and is
again in the bosom of her family, in the brief
period of two months. Rather a rapid experience,
even for this fast age, for a young Miss in her
There is another case of a young and rather
pretty female, who has, within the past two years,
been married and divorced three times-twice
to the same mar. Taylor strayed off in Dixie,
and fought for his rights with Simon Bolivar
Buckner. Mrs. Taylor sued for a divorce, got it,
and consoled herself with a brief period of con
nub'al felicity, wherein a Mr. Frazier was party of
the first part. Taylor, having fixed up the matter
of his rights, came up to look after his matrimo
nial interest. Re prevailed on Mrs Taylor, that
had been Frazier, that she should again seek the
intervention of the courts, which she (lid success
fullv turning poor Frazier out in the cold, and
agnin marrying Taylor.
The last marriage proved incompatible, and the
gay and festive lady soon managed to obtain a
third divorce, leaving Taylor and Frazier to con
sole themselves with a mutual recital tolarger
circles of sympathising friends of these extraor
dinary freaks of Eros, wbile the lady is sharply
on the lookout for number 4. Such is lifa in
THE CHOLERA.-The universal alarm felt at
the North, owing to the appearance of the
Cholera in New York harbor., renders some
reference to the c1naracter and history of this
awful pestilence interesting and appropriate
The term Cholera literally means an over
flow of bile ; the name comes from two Greek
words which signify that. Technically, its
1 classification belongs to diseases of the diges
tive tribe. In this category it has three dis
tinctive appellations-Cholera Morbus, Chole
ra Infantum, and Cholera Asphyxia. The
last is a fearful epidemic known to us as Asi
atic Cholera. The other two we have always
among us ; but the plague which is now at
the threshhold of our country makes only
spasmodic visits. It is epidemic as opposed
'to endemic ; that is to say affecting the many
rather than the few-people of all nations
and classes generally, rather than persons of
certain habits and grades particularly. The
first visit our country had from this pestilen
tial intruder was in 1832, three years after its
first appearance in Western Europe. Prior
to that it had confined its virulent progress to
Asia. It came to us from Canada, w-herc it
was imported by a foreign vessel which reach
ed Quebec from England. Thence it traveled,
via Montreal to New York, where it carried
off three thousand five hundred and thirteen
victims in a few months. Two years later it
had laid its fatal grip on nine thousand seven
Ihundred and one residents of New York ; and
fifteen years Iater, once more hurried to a
frightful death as many as fire thousand and
seventy-one. In 1852, '53 and '54 it closed
its hideous havoc with a further sacrifice of
two thousand nine hundred and sixteen lives
in New York, of whom two thousand~ and
five hundred fell in the last named year.
A TERRIBLE PREDICToN.-Professr'r Leoni
das, an Indianapolis astrologer, after looking
at the rings around the sun, makes the fol
lowirg horrible prophecy:
I observe by the planets that a dreadful
Iplague will eommence in Russia originating
from silks brought over from Cairo, Egypt
and Turkey. It will extend across the Baltic
Sea, and will desolate Germany, cause im
mnense mortality in England, and then spread
to the United States. This dreadful epidemic
will spot t~ae people like a leopard, and turn
the flesh to a purple black. The pestilence
Iwill carry off such an amount of mortals that
there will not be enough left to bury the dead
or give them Christian burial. The streets of
our cities, towns and villages will be swarmed
with the dead and dying. The groans and
yells. of horror will fill every breast with con
sternation. On all sides confusion will abound.
The death knell will cease to toll as the mala
Idy rages in fury. Th~e infected will fall and
die whenever they take it. The stench of the
dead will become~so common that the survi
Ivors will not heed it.
WILLING TO PAv.-The IIartford Press tells
a stcry of a recent accident on the New Lon
don Railroad. An intoxicated Irishman was
sitting on the track, when the engine struck
him and threw him down an embankment.
The conductor backed his train to pick up the
dead body. The yictim was found alive how
ever, only somewhat bruised, and taken to
Ndrwich. Here the conductor kindly offered
to send the man to his home, a few miles
away, in a back, but he insisted on his ability
to walk, and r-efused to be sent home. The
conductor pressed the matter, when the Mile
sian, who had stood the butting of the cow
catcher so well, bristled up with :" Go away
wita yer kerridge. I'll go home by myself;
an' if I've done any dama~ge to your ouldi en
gine, bedad I'll pay it on the spot."
A FIX FOR A YtoUNG GENTLEMAN.-A very nice
young gentleman, whose name we do not deem
necessary to ventilate, recently invested a small
sum in chickens, which he undertook to take
home on the Dauphin street cars. After proceed
ing a short distance the attention of all the pas
sengers, a large proportion of whom were ladies,
was called to him by one of his purchases raising
a loud and continued cackle. In vain he tried
to quiet the bird ; the ladies "tittered" and pull
ed down their veils ; presently sonme one asked
the price of eggs ! It was enough. The ladies
could no longer suppress their risibles. The pul
let had laid an egg in the young man's lap, and
he hastily retreated amid roars of laughter.
A dashing female arrived in Boston Satur
day, with plenty of money, which she said
she had made by keeping a house in New Or
