OBITUARY. Michael William Balfe. A cable telegram from London announces the death, at tbe age of T53, of Michael Balfe, the genial, fertile, and popular molodlst, whose triumphs are" easily traced in The Bohemian Girl, The Rose of Castile, Batenella, The Siege of Ilochelle, The Maid of Artoii Etolanthe, "The Light of Other Days," nnd teveral other compositions, all Of the highest order. lie was born in Dublin, Ireland, May 15, 1803. At an early age he evinced a predilection for music, and first attracted the notice of a Mr. Meadows, band master of a regiment then stationed in Wex ford. Under the superintendence of this worthy man young Balfe was in a short time enabled to perform airs on the violin with so much taste and such surpassing execution, that a concerto accomplished on that difficult Instrument at the age of eight gained bltu the flattering title of "The little fiddler." This and other evidences of his son's musical genius so far delighted his father that the young as pirant was placed under the guidance of the most accomplished masters, and in a few months so rapid was his proficiency that we find him makiDg his debut at a concert given at the Royal Exchange, in his native city; and in the following year (1817) he composed "The Lover's Mistake," an agreeable ballad sung by Madame Vestrls in I'aul Pry. At the age of fifteen Balfe repaired to London, and for seven years held the position of leading violinist at the oratorios then performing at Drury Lane Thea tre. He played solos on alternate nights, and his performances are Bald not to have been surpassed by the oldest and most experienced, artists of the time In the finish and brilliancy of their execution. He was next advanced to the Drury Lane orchestra, and so signalized himself that the conductor, Mr. Thomas Cooke, on sev eral occasions resigned to him his guiding baton. Balfe's first appearance before the public as a singer was at the Norwich Theatre. In 1825, as 'Caspar," In the opera of Der Frcischulz, and although gifted with a voice a baritone of great compass and richness, yet, from nervous ness and the novelty of the role, he made a com plete fiasco, and for some time became quite dispirited. Ills laurels, however, were soon after regained at the Italian Opera in Paris, in the character of "Figaro," in the Barber of Seville, and with Mallbraa, Sontag, Persianl, and other brilliant cantatrices, he now per sonated the leading characters in all tbe principal operas. Meantime the pen of this gifted man continued to enrich the musical world with an endless varV-!;' f composi tions, including overtures, ch sracc-, concerted pieces, and, with others, a ballad founded on the nautical adventures of La I'erouse, all of Which were successfully represented at La Scala, the great Milanese theatre. He is said at this lime, too, to have devoted much of bis leisure hours to study, and to have taken lessons from Filippo Julios and the celebrated Bordognl. Bis opera of Alala was written about this period, at Paris, and the principal parts were assigned to Nourrit, Mallbran, Leraaseur, and Dupont. lie next visited Milan, Palermo, and most of the Italian States, performing in all the leading theatres; and while at Bergnmi he married the prima donna Una Reze. On his return to Loudon lu 1835, Balfe ap peared in his own opera, The Siege of 2iochelle, and in Halevy's La Juive, at the Philharmonic Concerts and at Drury Lane Theatre. 2 he Maid of Artois, which we have already mentioned, was written for Malibran, and, after sixteen nights' performance, Is said to have brought the theatrical treasury $23,000. The Maid of Artois was succeeded by Katheriue Grey, Sir John Falstafl, tes Quatre Fits d'Aymon, Keolanthe, Joan of Arc, and Les Knits d'Amour. Not being successful as the lessee of the English Opera House, he engaged as musical com poser for Drury Lane, and during the lessee ship of Alfred Bunn produced The Bo Jtemian Girl for Mr. Harrison and Miss Rainforth, also The Laughter of St. Mark, JZ7ie Enchantress, UEtoile de Seville, and The Bondman, and subsequently The Maid vf Honor, The Hose of Castile, which may be ranked with The Bohemian Girl, and fSalanella, which completes the trlsof Balfe's most popular works, were both written for Miss Louisa Pyue and Mr. Harrison. The number of his melodies Is almost incredible, ranging from "The Lijhtof Other Bays" to that of "Comeinto the Garden, Maud," all attractive if not lutricite, nnd calculated to 6trike the popular car, if hot to rivet the attention of the thorough musician. As a composer, Balfe is said to have equalled Bellini and Auber in the spontaneity of his melodies, and, although he has left nothing which deperves to be ranked with the works of the great masters, he has left much which will long maintain Its hold upon the popular fancy. John B. Alexander, a youug Virginian, who passed a favorable examination at the Naval Academy and declined to take the oath on ac count of conscientious scruples, has returned to his home. An attempt was made a few days ago to fix the amusement license of L'tica at $15 per night for each travelling entertainment, instead of supplying tbe aldermen with tickets of admis sion: Liit the majority were not in favor of re signing their old privileges, and the matter fell through.
