MRS. BARBOTAS SACRED CONCERT.
lull rehearsal of thia concert took place
last night, and the smoothness and accuracy
with which the diff?rent pieces were rendered
Justify the expectation that the public per?
formance, on Thursday, will be worthy of the
musical culture of the beneficiare and of the
skill ol the performers. Tue number of voices
was unusually large, and this bas enabled Mrs.
Barbot to prepare a programme which con?
tains examples of many different styles, and
gives assurance, besides, that the choruses
will be delivered,with floe effect. The trios for
flute? and organ are charming compositions,
and Southard's "Let Thy Loving Mercy" ls
very catching. Millard's "Thou Lord art my
Hope" (solo and chorus) is one of the most
effective numbers of the programme, bring?
ing In four melodious solos. Tbe Bolo,.duett
and chorus from the Hymn of Praise has, we
believe, never before been Eung tn Charleston.
It will delight the lovers, of Mendelssohn's
music. BIZZJ'S "Salve Marta'' is striking and
expressive, and Mercad ante's -Et Incarnat us"
is both touch io? an] brilliant. Rossini's
"Charily" is highly dramatic, and a novel
effect ls produced with the female voices. Tbe
"Gloria io Excelsis," from Haydn's First Mass,
and "The Heavens are Telling," irom the Cre?
ation, are grand works ot art, and, last night,
were splendidly sung. . .
It will be bard if the selections made by
Mrs. Barbot do not gratify every taste. They
are, without exception, chosen for their popu?
larity, or for their high rank as compositions;
so that the concert may be expected to please
the, critical amateur as well as those who,
without knowing or caring why, take delight
in a concord of sweet sounds. The concert is
a choice one in every respect, and deserves
the generous patronage ef the publia

that the commissioners bad, on the 5th of
April, 1870, Issued to J. W. Mead a check for
SU10 95, wheo the indebtedness of the coun?
ty to Mr. Mead was only $518. The only wit?

ing and charged that certain vouchers, re?
quired by law to be kept in the office of the
county commissioners, were not in the office

solicitor ol this circuit. Mr. Seabrook testified
.hat he applied to Mr. Perrin for copies of cer?
tain vouchers, and was told that they were in
"Jolurobla; and it being shown by the testi?
mony lor the defence that the vouchers were
jrdered by Governor Scott to be sent to

To the Public.
Having heard there are reports being circu?
lated In Charleston that the Singer Sewing
Machine Company would not be In this city
very long; thar, in case of an epidemic, they
would run away-also, that their office in
Savannah would be closed lu a short time,
further, that the Singer Sewing Machine will
not do as fine work as some other machines,
and various reports of this kind-we take the
liberty to say, Firstly, the Singer Company ?3
firmly established in Charleston ; so firm that
they have little notion of vacating their posi?
tion in favor of any ol their rivals. Secondly,'
the agent has some recollections of having
conducted the business in this city without
intermission during the yellow fever of last
summer. He did not run away, nor is he
likely to do so at any future day. Thirdly, the
office In Savannah ls established on too firm a
basie, aud the general agent resident In that
city has more capital involved that would be
consistent with his moving away suddenly.
He is lally competent to give satisfaction to
the company he represents, and very likely
considerable dissatisfaction lo rival compa?
nies. Fourthly, the Singer Machine will do as
fine work as any sewing machine. Flithly
and lastly, we challenge any sewing machine
In the teor?a" to do any finer or better work
than can be done on the Singer.
