MUSICAL NOTES FROM "THE HUB" All tlio XoIIooh Exoitctl. ARRIVAL OF THE JEW. BILL LEE. He Octteth Up a Singing- Club. How He Doeth It, and How They Sing. Hilt, June 17, lHO'J. Mr. Editor: The Great Jew, Bill Lee, arrived lere safe and eouud (particularly the sound) last Tuceday, and immediately went to work to get his singers, like so many cattle, Into the pound (particularly the pound), which embraced the Common, and which was boarded np for the occasion. I might add, from the difficulty I experienced 'in getting board, that they had taken all there was in the city. Early on Tuesday morning 6 The RokIii Wnsron began to drive up to the back door, and at ouce twenty men commenced to shovel in rosiu for the scrapers of cat-gut, of which there are some four hundred. The mews has smiled upon the Jew, Bill Lee, from his birth, and his earliest music was that which he extracted from the i i i . . i. . . i, i. ,i : .1 v . . .1 xiuueeiiuiu ctti; lllilt, llljvvutui, iiu UIU u u viu- ing on its tail. The impressions of those days were never really effaced from his memory, and on the occasion of this sing he commissioned a New England mechanic to get him up an instru ment that should combine both Wind and String Proportion, and which I may say was successfully accom plished in the above. 305 cats, each one day older than the other, supplied the notes of the most delicate shades of tone, from the short and sharp tenor of the nine-days' kitten to the pro longed baritone of a year-old Tommy. The in strument was named the "Catawauler.'" The freight train from Providence arrived with parts of the trombone, and as soon as all the pieces were got into the building, a gang of workmen commenced putting it together. The effect of this Instrument, when blowcd by steam, was electrifying. Professor Crescendo has the Contract for Working the Key., At eighteen dollars a note. It is not very profit able, as he has to employ several men, who are Btationod at different points iu the instrument, and bring their dinners. It is a very dangerous business, as a slip tit any time into oac of the Talves would bo fatal to that note. The feature of the occasion is the big drum, and, like the nose on the Jew, a very prominent feature It is, with this difference, that while you "beat" the former, you "blow" the latter. The drum is a most iugonious piece of architecture, that has to be played by what is termed a "block and fall," and is also dangerous. The players take their position on the edge of the drum, and raising up the drum-stick, let it fall like a pile driver on the head. The concussion is so grsat that It throws the players up in the air, and it requires great practice to get down in time for the next beat. Tie most Interesting department is that of tho j w with TUclr Un and where three of tlito ancient people play npon one Instrument, while the tongue is struck in proper time with a triphammer, borrowed from the Lowell Locomotive Work for the occasion. This was an invention of an old do' merchant of Chatham street, New York, and was adopted by Mr. (illmore, provided he could get the chaps with the gills to play it. . A number of New Bed ford whalers, who had lived three and five years at a time on ."hard-tack," had teeth fit for the occasion, as the instruments could not bo made of malleable Iron, but had to be of the birdcxt steel. The music of theso harps was very sweet, although many of the notes were regular jaw breakers'. ' 1; A very unique Invention 'by tlioladics of Bos ton to add petal to tliii ' occasion was the Intro duction of an Instrument called by the proprietor HAVE PEPLt-J Siinnkrnnla. which was very simple in its construction. It was nothing more nor less than the putting into practice the old proverb that "A bird that can sing, and won't sing, ought to be made to sing." An advertisement went out from Nilcs' adver tising agency headed "To the mothers of New England," and went on to invite "all those mothers who wanted peace in their families, and at present did not have it, to bring up the juvenile disturbers of the family peace to tho Great Jew, Bill Lee, and he would inaugurate a way to 'let us have peace' ut home." Accord ingly, on the day set for rehearsal about six hundred mothers, with their boys, ranging from six to sixteen years of ago, presented them selves to Mr. Eichberg, tho conductor of tho choruses, who immediately put them in train ing, as shown in the above sketch. Tho effect was most striking particularly as regards the utriking), and tho mothers so enjoyed it that it was with dilllculty they could be per suaded to hold up at tho proper beat. On tho opening day they kept Umo most beautifully. It was a moving night to see (500 maternal hands raised high in the air, and, ut the signal from tho leader's baton, nil of them come down in stern resolve to do or die; and simultaneously to hear the yell of COO juvenile voices in all degrees of pain or anger, at the same time the cannon' outside the building making one tremendous report. The bubs of tho "Hub" have been in a hubbub nbout it ever since. The Trlanicln was a big thing lu its way. Of course no iron beater could be constructed and worked with sufficient force to have tho proper effect, con sequently the aid of Yo Ancient and Honorable Artlllerie of Boston was called in. They uso it as a target, and at every time a "strike" is wanted ten 16-pounders are fired at it. The first one that hits it knocks it out of the way, so that the others can miss it. This arrangement works admirably. Triangles iu Boston are no now things: they are more common than squares, particularly in the plan of the streets. Towards the close of the sing is generally brought in the fellows that do The Anvil Clionix, and they never fail to bring down tho house that is, they would bring it down if it was not already on the ground. They use altogether sheet-iron music, and they can play anything. At "old sledge" they are A 1. Ironically speak ing, they have nerves of steel, and their music is of the most cheerful des cription. One curi ous thing was noticed. . During their perform ance every car horse that passed the building would immediately stop and hold up ono of his legs, and always the oae on which there was no shoe. This was noticed for several days, and became such an inconvenience to the railroad company that they intend keeping their horses shod during tho existence of the sing. Yesterday President Graut came into the shanty, and got into a scrape right away. They put him up among the fiddlers, and such a scraping of feline intestines I suppose was never before known. The General took out his hand kerchief to wipe his nose. Mr. Gilmore mistook itj for applause, when he gave the signal to turn on all the steam. The "big drum," the "spankeania," the cannon, and other wind instruments joined in with tho rosin instru ments, and such a diu was raised that the General had to cry out for tho second time, "Let vb have Pe Act!" This h"'- ' .. uiwiiaicn will give you but a faint Idea of the way the Jew, Bill Lee, taxed his In genuity to get up something now for his cus tomers, and how he succeeded. Don't believe tho many ridiculous statements uout him and his dub going the rounds of the press. What I serd is entirely reliable. Others write merely for sensation. In comparison to mine they seem to ino to B Flat. A Favorite Amkuican Lettek An X. The Voice op Natike The blowing of flowers. What is tho most dangerous ship to embark In ? Authorship.
