Meetino or thb Landlords' .Associa
tion.-The meetiaK . of the Landlords
Association,, last evening, at the Spencer
House, was well attended, nearly all the
hotels and the daily papers being represented
there. Mr. Levering, of the Railroad House,
was elected a member of the Association, ana
Judee Sweenev. formerly of the Walnut-
street House, having retired, on account of
nu intention to leave me city, was eiectea an
honorary member. ; .
Communications were read from Indian
apolis, Crestline, and other points, giving
amusing reports of professional Jeremy Did
dlcrs, who had victimized hotels in divers
ways, and in various Bums.
A proposition was mode that the landlords of
me city snouia .oner a premium for certain
farm products at the coming eighth annual
exhibition of the United States Agricultural
Society,. to be held in this city, which seemed
to meet witn general lavor.
After tho transaction of some other unim
portant business, the Association adjourned
to meet en the last Saturday of July, at the
The landlords and journalists present were
then invited to the spacious ordinary of the
Spencer, where, although Colonel Pratt
firomiscd there would be a most ordinary eol
ation, a sumptuous supper was spread with
an abundance of . sparkling Catawba and
Heidsick. The repast was thoroughly enjoyed,
and after a pleasant exchange of sentiment
and a most agreeable running conversation,
the members of the Association parted with
the best feeling at the early hour of half-past
Ohio Gram Cultdrk and thi Manofac
toryo)? Ahibioan Winks. Mr. B.Buchanan,
of this city, who has been identified with
grape culture since it was first attempted lu
Ohio for wine-making purposes, says there
are now about four thousand acres laid out
in vineyards in Ohio, of which about half are
iu the immediate vicinity of Cincinnati. The
yield last year is estimated at 350 gallons per
acre, for tho whole State, which is much
above the usual average. From a careful es
timate of the vintages for the last twelve
years, the average yield of the Ohio Valley is
2uo gallons per acre; on well cultivated viue
yaras, in favorable positions, 300 gallons,
which is about the average product in trance
and Germany. - In Missouri and Illinois the
yield did not exceed 200 per acre, owing to
the prevalence of the rot; and In Tennessee,
Georgia and South Carolina, lt 'is very much
reduced by a destructive frost in April.
It is Said that the amount as well as tho
quality of the various wines produced in the
aitterent States of the Union is steadily gain
ing. The business is as profitable as any
branch of agriculture-r-perhaps more so at
present prices two to three dollars per gal
The culture of the grape has become very
extensive in ibis country. It is not oonfinea
to any section, but seems to flourish alike in,
the West, the South and New England. It Is
anticipated tJ)U, with good .weather, the Ohio
vineyards will yield this year 1,600,000 gal
lons. There are also extensive vineyards in
Missouri and other Western States, and in
North and South Carolina, Georgia, Ten
nessee and Texas. The culture is also ex
tending. in Connecticut. Grape growers aay

man, good-looking, intelligent, ana genteelly
dressed, stopped at the Bpencer House ana
registered his name as "J. A. Gannett, Leb

agreeable rentlemn, and a person of culture
and travel: possessing that adaptability and
suavity which soon make what society styles
irienas. lie oecame quite popular about tne
hotel at once: but bavlncr on the fourth dav
of his Sojourn, fallen ill, fie immediately re
ceived all the attention and cam that are
usually proffered to the guests of the Spencer
by the considerate proprietors. A servant
was specially aetauea to wan on air. u., ana
the physician of the house eneosred to visit
bim twice a day until his convalescence.
The stranger was very sick, and seemed to
suffer much, though be was as tenderly
treated as if he bad been beneath his paternal
roof, nothing being omitted that could add to
bis convenience or comfort; but still he grew
worse, and after a week's confinement to his
bed, he wished to send for his wife, residing,
he said, at Lebanon.
la due time, Mrs. U. arrived, and inter a
fortnight of care and watching, her husband
was enabled to rise from his couch, and in a
few days be declared himself fully recovered.
Mr. (J. was profuse in his expressions of grat
itude to Messrs. Pratt AMetcalf, and to Clerks
French. Blum and Barlow, and assured them
all that he would never forget their kindness
and the sympathy they had shown him dur
ing nis paintui illness.
Two days after this expression of feeling,
Mr. Q. had disappeared. And with him all his
baggage and the principal part of his wife's,
who remained behind, and, when asked the
whereabout of her liege-lord, declared and
she appeared entirely sincere Bhe knew

greatly surprised as any one could be at his

The woman was the hostage for the hus

Archbishop Hughes in thi Sooth. Arch
bishop Hughes recently preached the gradu
ating sermon before the Senior' Claw of
Chapel Hill College, in North Carolina. The
Jf. C. Pretbytorum says of the discourse:
Had a blind man, ignorant of Dr. Hughes's
cnaracter ana onice, neara tne sermon ne
fire ached to our Seniors last Tuesday night,
le could not have suspected the faith of the
preacher. Its. Armenionism' might have
warned him that he was not listening to an
Old School Presbyterian. One saw in the
preacher an elderly man in infirm health, a
bowed form, yet striking appearance. He
wore a tight-fitting cassock, that looked like
a frock of some grandmother whose calico
was scarce and whose hoops were few, orna
mented with a row of red buttons down the
front and down the sleeves, and surmounted
by a Doctor's cape. Cn his breast there lay
a carved cross of cold susDended by a heavy
golden chain, and on his finger appeared the
Archiepiscopal ring (said to be a present
from the Pope, and to have cost the faithful
$150,000), which flashed strange lights into
tne wonaenng eyes oi roor rroiesianu.
An Antiquarian Curiosity. A'litbodatc
has been found in Copely, Summit County,
Ohio, which is worthy of oublic mention. It
was found by Mr. David Miller, upon his
premises, in the south-west portion of the
township. There is, running through this
section, an out-cropping ledge of the silicious
roca wuicu untieriies luac part oi cue otate.
There is on the farm of Mr. Milleraquarry of
this stone, and near the Quarry was a de
tached portion of rock, so covered with dirt
that a maple tree grew to about eighteen
inches in diameter, when, not having a firm
hold of tho earth, the wind turned it over,
carrying with it most of the soil. Under
wnere this tree naa stood was found, nicely
cut in tne rocic Dy some snarp instrument,
tne following inscription in Komon letters
"L. F. B.. 1600."

nook, while the timber was yet stundintr

MUSICAL AND DRAMATIC ART.

before, f he itup faae boeo taken which ehowi man
agon conclusively that a tingle star on the stage of
a theater will not eatlsfy the pnblio during the per
formance of a play; and to have one part only prop
erlr performed will not he acoeptcd as the represent
at ion of a drama.
Thle 1 the portent of the eloudi now gathering on
the dramatlo horixon, and ejralmt the tky that te
now almost wholly oVerout. The two or Ihiee little
tare twinkling In the flrnianent will coon set, leav
ing no one to take ttiolr plaoee. and only a memory
that will show whore and what they were. The Im
mense prices heretofore paid to single perf rmers for
an engagement of twelve nights will be distributed
In snch a manner among the stock companies that
managers can afford to have every part In a play re
spectably done, instead of giving bnt one good rep-
return tation of a character, while all the rest are bad.
The dramtUi penonaU are like the ekiarc otmro In a
laudecape. They are tho light and shade of the per
formance, and unless each nice distinction of char
acter be faithfully delineated, the effect of the entire
drama is destroyed. It would be as absurd in a
painter to cause the light to Ml upon his picture
from two or three different points, as in an actor or
actress to represent "Benedick" as an old man, or
Ophelia" as a hoyden; but even this ii not much
worse than to represent "Orpheus" as a youth, with
a black moustache, and tho "Allcmanla" as wearing
This neglect of details for such incongruities are
nightly seen upon tho stngoevlnce that there Is a
carelessness somewhere that Is unpardonable. The
manager or aotor Is at fault, and while the affair
eeemsso small as to be hardly worth excusing, it Is
really so great a violation of the proprieties of art,
aud such an outrage upon the test hot ic sense of an
audience, that It should not remain unnoticed.
There Is some difference between barbarism and
civilisation; Naples Is not In Oreeoe; water-nymphs
and Greek maidens do not wear gilt boots and crino
line; and In the drawing-rooms of the London and
Paris ari toe racy persons are supposed to understand
the usages of polite society. Managers who do not
understand these fact, or will not see that such
tbiugs are attended to, deserve not the patronage of
the public, and hereafter wo doubt whether they
will receive It. Actors who have not yet learned the
first lesson In art had bettor weigh at least a portion
of the advice that is given them through the press,
aud mend; for the clap-trup of the stage will nn
longer, In the public estimation, occupy the place or
tne true legitimate drama.

Loudon Athttuum in regard to Borghl-Mamo may

The admirers of Madame Borghl-Hamo (and she

Thb PazscMT Btatk or Musical Pitch. The En
glish musicians aud amateurs have recently met lu
Con greed, to consider a question In which every mu
sician must feel a deep interest the present state of
musical pitch. The immvenience universally felt
from the variations of pitch, have long loudly called
for the establishment of a uniform staudard. Vari
ous observations (made principally dnring the last
season at tho Italian Opora, and atthe Philharmonic
and other orchestra couoerts,) have established the
remarkable fact that, at the proeeut time, tho pitch
baa reached au average of ito vibrations per second
for A, equal to MO for 0. So that the C and A of 1M
are identical with the D flat and B flat of ldso, th
pitch having risen, in fest than (wsHiy years, a ssmittoM
This extraordinary result baa been brought about
by avarlety of causos. .
The advent of certain foreign vocalists gifted with
voices of exceptionally high register, may have been
one; an optuion, entertained by many instrumental
performers, that increased "brilliancy" of timbre m
attained by increased elevation of pitch may have
been another; but, perhaps, the prensut high pitch
is due less to these and other like causes than to the
fact that It Is always possible to raise, aud often Im
possible to lower, the pitch of au Instrument; and,
therefore, that If one important instrument (oboe or
clarionet for example) in an orchestra, is found to
be higher than alt the other Instruments, accord
ance is rarely obtained by lowering it, but almost
always by raising theoa. With au exciting cause like
this always in operation, the wouder Is tliat the pitch
has not risen more, rather than thai it has risen so
much. Nor Is it unreasonable to anticipate still
further elevation, unless some such standard can be
agreed, upon, by reference to which this upward
tendency con be kept In check.
