I Tho first soiree musicalo of tho [loan
j oke Musical Society was given nt the
: Opera House last night to a select uudi
I From a musical point of view, tho oai
U rtatnmcnk was a great success.
The lirst. numbor, "Greeting," by tho
1 chorus of Ute society, showed careful
i The next selection, a quartette, by
! Messrs. Cook, Filler, llrindrod and
i Goornor, with first violin, second violin,
I 'cello and piano was much enjoyed,
i This was followed by "Tho Jahber
i wock," a vocal male quartet*,,by Messrs.
j Cooke. Fitter, Teaford and Amole. This
universal favorite was well rendered and
Mr. S. It. Cary next made his how to
the nudience, which he completely cap?
tivated by his rendition of Schubert's
composition, Allegro and Andante from
Sonate,' Opus 137, No. 1.
Professor Uoorncr, tho conductor of
the society, followed with ono of Beeth- I
oven's Andantes. The audience listoned
w ith closo attention, and when tin? last
sweet strains had died away, gave the
accomplished performer an enthusiastic
encore. He responded with a Nocturne
j inG minor by Chopin,
j Mr. C. K. Oraves represented the liter?
ary part, and filled the last number
i of the first part of Hit! programme.
! His selection was Claude Melnotto to
I Pauline: which will be remembered by
! all lovers of the "Lady of Lyons." Mr.
. Graves' characterization was such as to
' bring him prolonged applause. On re
' turning, in response to the call of tho
1 audience, he stated that he would pro?
ceed to give a play supported by a very
strong company; in other words, that
' he. himself, would take four uhnrac
? tci-s. Then followed a most amusing,
; original dramatic burlesque, delineat?
ing the typical stagey-stage hero,
heroine, villain and paterfamilias. This
brought; down the house. We pre?
dict, that Mr. Oraves' first, appearance
' before a Itoanoko public will not he Iiis
'. Part second of the programme opened
with a highly executed fantasia given
by Mr. Filler on his favorite instru?
ment, the banjo. His second selection,
I Church Chimes, was rendered in such
! style as to d digitt the audience, and
! show him a most skillful performer.
j Mrs. B. S. Hunt v. as on the pro
I gramme for the socond number, and
I sang "Fiddle and I," with violin obll
[ goto, in a voi-5 sweet and sympathetic
, manner. Her loic.-isvery full on the
\ upper register, and on the lower notes
! shows great reserve rower. In response
I lo an encore she sang "Farewell."'
I Professor Goernor next gave thrco
I selections eompoaod by himself; ail
' three belonged to tho class of light con
? cert compositions, but were played with
I a legato touch that made t hem highly
, entertaining to lovers of the piano. The'
j violin duet between Messrs. Cooke and
j Goornor was given with a finish worthy
? of all praise.
j Tho next selection, an Adagio by .len
' sen. with violin, "ceilo and piano, seemed
I lo please the audience very much. Mr.
] Veatman gave the last instrumental
selection on the programme, ballad by
j Jonns-Bvans, which was played in beau?
Tito last number was "Hood Night." a
?chorus by all the members of the club.
This, and indeed the entire programme,
showed musical taste, skill and care.
In closing the gallery, the managers
.acted wisely, as t.t.ey thus secured a 80
ilect and appreciative audience. Among
the many music-towing people present
were. Miss Halhy, Mrs. Sie-.-.art. Mrs.
Hodgson and otherr. A number of the
prominent railroad officials more pres?
ent. The only draw back to as evening
1 otherwise fraught with pleasure was the
Arctle atmosphere of the Opera House.

These figures may bo slightly changed

According to these figures the absolute

Upon their face these figures show
that the population has increased be?

than between 1H70 and 1SS0.
The white rate of increase has appar?

If these figures were derived from cor?

These figures, however, are easily CX

j It Is a well-known fact, having been
? demonstrated by extensive and thorough
investigation, that the census of 1870
was grossly deficient in tho Southern
I States, so much so as to not only give
I nn exaggerated rato of increase of pop
