HOMrE-RAISED TROUT.-The Charlos.
ton News and Courier of the 7th
inst. has the following
A gontloman not wholly uncou
nected with the Secretary of State's
office, spent one day of his Christ
nas holidays with Hon. Thos. W.
Woodward, of Newberry, and on
that occasion partook of a trout
weighing six and one-quarter
pounds which was raised by his
host in his private fish -pond. It is
strictly in order now for Mr.
Woodward to rise and explain what
lie knows about pisciculture.
This is all true, except in one
very important particular. Major
Woodward lives in Fairfield, and
we are unwilling for Newberry to
have him. Nor is it necessary for
the Mtajor "to rise and explaini
what he knows about pisciculture ;"
for this lie has already dono in his
admirable ossay delivered at the
summor meeting of ,the State
Grange in Anderson last year, and
since published in full in Tim NEws
AND hERALD and other newspapers
in the State. But the associate
editor of this paper wvill ever have
among the regrets of his life that
he didn't accept the Major's cordial
invitation to go and partake of that
Tuesday evening, the time fixed
for the concert in aid of the Gordon
Light Infantry, wvas a most disa..
greeable one. The day had boon in
tensely cold, with a slight fall of
snow, and though the clouds clear
ed away at one time, yet they soon
gathered again, -and by seven
* o'clock the evening was almost as
unpleasant as it could be. At all
events it was a most unp)ropitious
one for the coming entertainment.
Notwithstanding this, a good au
dience assembled at the Thespian
Hall, to hear the really excellent
music that was given. :
The concert opened with "Ever
of Thee Polka" by the full string
band-two violins, cornet, piccolo,
bass and piano. Their music was
really excellent, the instruments
being in perfect tune, the time per
feet and the excution accurate and
tasteful. .The band afterwards
played the "El Dorado Waltz,"
which is a fine piece of music, and
which they rendered even better
than the polka. Nexct followved
"Love and War," a quartott.
soprano, alto, tenor and basso. It
was finely sung, as wvere afterwards
the quartettes "Moonlight on the
Lake" and "Tell me, ye Winged
Winds"---the last-named being par
ticularly sweet. The tenov solo
from Lucia di Lammermoor was
next rendered by Mr. Levi. This
gentleman has an unusually fine
voice, and to natuzal talent he has
added a high degree of culture.
Hils notes are all clear, full, strong
and sweet--a combination of ole..
mente not of ten f.ound. He - hows
his music, the pieces he rendered
being peculiarly well adapted to his
voice. His articulation is unusually
clear-far more so than that of
most male singors. At some
distance from the stago al
most ov -y word of his pieces
could bc distinctly under
stood. Mr. J.ovi afterwards sang
"When the Bloom is on the Rye," in
which the compass of his voice was
bettor Ebown than in the previous
selection-his lower notes being
soft and smooth and the higher ones
clear and strong. He was loudl y
encored, but responded only by a
gracoful and silent acknowledgment
of the compliment. Pro fessor
Schmitt, with whom our communi.,
ty had already become well Ac
quainted, played some fine selections
from Norma, in which he showed
his usual fine control of his violin.
He afterwards played variations
from DeBeriot, in which he almost
excelled himself. He too was
encored, and in response played a
very fine piece of music, the name of
which we did not learn. "'Twas
within a Milo of .Edinboro'" was
finely sung by Miss Mackoroll, who
shows remarkable musical talent for
one so young. Her voice was unusual
strength and her notes are all clear
and true. With frequent and
judicious practice, she must some
day not far distant have a voice of
rare excellence. A noteworthy
feature of the concert was the per
formances on the piano by Miss
Buchanan, Alias Kitty Rion and
Mrs. Mobley. The Polka do Con
cert by Miss Buchanan was finely
rendered, and showed both musical
talent and a mastery of the instru
mont. Her touch is delicate and her
expression excellent. The Lion Hunt
played by Alias Rion is a piece re.
quiring not only a command of the
instrument, but good ear, correct
taste and perfect time. Combining
these, Miss Rion acquitted herself
very creditably. The overture to
Zampa, performed as a duet by
Mrs. Mobley and Aliss Buchanan,
was admirably rendered. Mrs.
Mobley fhows a command of the
instrument worthy of a professional,
and with this she combinos good
taste. The rendition of the
overture by Miss Buchanan and
herself could scarcely have boon
better. . The soprano solo, "Thou
Art so Near and yet so Far," was
excellently sung by Mrs. Davis.
Selecting a piece well adapted to
her voice, she succeeded in render
ing it in a manner creditable aliko
to her taste and her training. Her
voice is strong, but for this loses
none of its natural sweetness.
Altop:<-thor, the concert was a
cred ubb ~ exhibition, and the
Winnsb .rov Musical Associ'ation
have reason to congratulate them
selves on their success.
At the close of the performance
the young people indulged for a
short while in the danco, and then
everybody wven t home-shivering as
he went, but glad to have heard the
fine music of the evening.
