Tbe B?rgs*rcss of the. North has now bad r,er
introduction to tbe Americar, public, upon the
grandest scs'c of representation poisible in any
one place. In a crescendo series of six mass
meetings, aha has set thousicds and thousands of
souls vibrating with the sweetest joy of aicloiy.
In tbe brief respite given us until her return from
Besten, it is a pleasure calmly to review this new
experience, arid, if possible, identify and analyse
tbe permanent impression Jenny Lind has left
upon us as a singer and an artist.
1, In tbe first place a voice, whose every tone in
point of quality comes nearer to tbe ideal of pare
Tone, than we had thought it possible for any tones
to come and still retain the charm and temper of
an individual humanity. We speak now of that
intrinsic quality of tone, considered in its very
texture and ultimate fibre, whi^h characterizes it
independently of all external tractability or polish
Tones may be intrinsically sweet and musical,
like pure gold, and yet come to us, as it were, in
the rough ore, as has been frequently the case
with Benedetti s tenor. Such, even in their
rough and primitive state, are far more satisfying
than the most smooth and finished tones that seem
to have no heart-wood in them. Jenny Lind's
tones are sweet and solid to the core. There is
the stuff of music in them, which can never be re?
fined away. They indicate at once tfce most com?
pact and the most pliable material of Art.
To the refining and perfecting of theae rioher
than golden elements?to tbe rendering them
tructable in their series, and each symmetrical and
whrleaBd discreet In itself, there ssem to have
conspired most plenteously in her a strong musical
temperament?a native instinct of the Beautiful?a
deep, pervading spirituality of soul?keeping the
eyes of intolleet still purged and unconfused?an
uncompromising taste or artistic conscience, at)d an
unre-laxing energy of discipline in the best aohools
We have had to go into all this metspbysica'
analysis to indicate how mechanically true, and yet
bow utterly in contrast with the mere mechanical,
js the production of such a voice. Its purity is
proved in the fact that its tones go so far. When
we remarked to her that not one vibration of her
softest and most diminished tones?not the mos'
faint and minute fioritura was ever lost in any cor
ner of that vast Castle Garden, Mi it Lind modest?
ly replied : " That proves how excellent a hall it is
for sound.'' We could have answered, that still
more it proved with what a vital certainty her
voice must vibrate, thus to impress its vibrations
upon every particle of air in such a vast inclosure.
Then as to register and compass, as every critic
has told us, it is one of the genuine high sopranos,
firm and full and sweet and telling, even to the F
in alt, or higher?rich and evenly developed
through ihe middle noteB, with sufficient oharacter
in the notes below the lines, though not, of course,
possessed of that strong, reedy, passion-full con?
tralto, which, it has been truly said, has been to
apt to electrify an audience in mezzo sopranos like
Tedeeco. The registers blend imperceptibly,
though there is something in tbe ascent of her
loudest voice of that sort of Tyrolean Yodel which
marks her northern and her mountain origin, and
which we Und both musical and characteristic. In
her pianissimo, or half-voice, she traverses aoalee
up and down?even the chromatic, with the most
fluid and unbroken precision, like an instrument
which graduates, but still preserves, ono quality of
tone tfc rough all its octaves.
But after all, the great charm of that voice
to us is its extreme purity of tone, which goes
so far and tells so infallibly, and seems to come
always cut of the inmost depth of a soul in har?
mony with nature?" deep calleth unto deep."?
To record its inellable sweetness, is but to vary
the same statement. In our first hasty sketch
we called it slightly veiled: the term was too
positive acd might mislead: we only meant that
there was no crudeness, hardness, shrillness
in those pure tones ; no unmitigated glare , and that
we never misi in them that genial ami artistic
property which we call tone in paintings. Ample
quantity orvolutie, and strength, always tractable
to the least suggestion of taste or feeling, seem to
be thenext main attributes.
0. 8o much for the organ in itself, though in at
tempting to daguerreotype its lineaments with our
rough apparatus, we have necessarily anticipated
something under the next head, which is zxkc?
i ion. Of this, perhaps, enough has been said and
written. We have seen some slight exceptions ta
ken to her voice, but not one to her vocalizatlum
which is commonly admitted tobe unrivalled, sav
lBg tbe protests of here and there a hyper-critical
and unreceptive Frenchman. In exeoutlon she
hae all the dauntless hardihood of tbe Labordes
and Blihops, and essays all sorts of difficulties
with a joyful elasticity of temperament which
would make them natural acd interesting even if
she achieved them with a less consummate
ease and grace. In the earliest and latest daily
exercise of the vocelist, in the delivery of a
perfect sc&le, which, to attain, is as hard as to get
the right swell of an architectural column, her sue
cess is so uniformly remarkable that it seems an
inspiration. In the arpeggio, tho trill, the mordente
and all forms of cade: .ta, she is singularly perfect.
I Her intonation is faultless. She will commence on
a very high note after a long rest, with perfect pre.
;iaionand firmness, and sustain it unwaveringly
upon that level. 8he prolongi the mo;', liquid
l and distinct trill sotto voce in th?. same manner.
] She graduates her force and volume with such
mastery of swell and var/iah of the voice, that the
undulating curve of beauty gives a life and aym,
metrj to every phrase acd passage. She closely im
itates, while she humanizes, the audible beauty oj
nature, the warble of birds, the mountain echoes,
and all that.
Acd what of all that.' some will ask, and we
have asked it before now in the case of several re?
markable canlatrici. Why enumerate this bar.
ren catalogue of technicalities ? Theae mechani.
cal implements' and arts of the bravura singer are
In themselves but lifelesa means ofthat inipired
thiDg we call Art. Yet every great singer has
coveted complete possession of them. They are
soulless without something more; nor can they be
bad even in the highest mechanical sense without
something more; acd that is
3. Stti.e, a term which aome use as equivalent
to eiepretsion. We do not quarrel with tbe deflni
tion, but would here use the term to distinguish a
pervading artistic manner and habit in the singer
from any specifio rendering of emotion. Styiefaj
we use it, corresponds toTatte; Expression 'im?
plies Feeling, and concerns the motive of the song.
Or, more properly, perhaps, style is the result of
artistic feeling, underlying, animating, chastening
everything the artiat does, whether it be play or
pathos. Every artist has tbe artist style, which i?
a second nature, even when most nnimpusioned
Tbe sentiment of Beau y must shine through,
warm through, blend and unify tba details of
his execution In short, he must btve tastj, which
is artistic Conscience, and wif] dcI suffer sny
crudity of mere rr,echnni<5a! achia?m*nc to b??
Now this we find in Jep.-jt L:s:>. She cm
not nie her trillt and tcales and ornament, her
mere mechanic*! facilities, otherwise than a tisti- j
cally. To her overmastering sense of Beauty :
it were tnicidal to employ tbete art? bo purposely j
as to let tbem stand cut of all connection like
mere vocal tricks. We have heard it said that
a very long trill, such as she gives in her Siog- i
ing-Lesfon Doett, or at the close of Qaando \
lascai la Normartdia, is not artistic. I? may !
be keeping on the safe side to avoid it as j
a general rale; but we most think, after
hearing Jenny Lied in the aforesaid trills, that
there is more of the conventionality than o? the
vitality of taste in such a criticism. One main in?
gredient in her charm has been that she employs
I these things only in places which will bear them ;
ibe is faithfni in the least thing to the law or
fitness. We have heard sncb vocal feats when
they were mere gymnestics and have sickened of
them; but as we have witnessed them in her,
nothing could have ever moved us to inquire if they
were genuine, but the professional bewildering
criticisms which we read and hear. Her orna
mentSj^wn/wre, cadenzas, Ac. are always fitly
introduced and perfectly symmetrical and charao
teristic in themselves. They grow naturally out
of the subject melody, and are not cold'y tacked on
like extraneous trinkets. It must be considered
! that the pieces she has sung have been almost and
j entirely thus fir either brardras or florid cotnLj
duetts from the Italian Opera, or graceful musical
conceits expreisly written for her voiso, like the
Echo Trio with two flutes, or imitations of nature
(not a very high department of Art) like the
"Swedish Herdsman's Song," though this last we
do like as a truly fresh and genuine melody-?
Orniment in all these things was in place, though
another singer might net find it quite so safe to at
tempt it. The style which could make ali this
exuberance agreeable and orthodox, is of course
equally apparent in her most plain and simple
readings. One of our contemporaries, whose criti?
cism of this siDger is at variance with our own im
pression in some respects, has noticed one great
point of style in her with delicate appreciation.
" 8he knows, or rather feels, that nothing mono- i
tor.otts can be beautiful in art, and her voice Is
ever undulating into forms of exquisite beauty, i
She never by any chance gives one note with the j
sanio force ns Ihe last, but always with greater or I
less, and with a gradation so artful and so well
balanced that the ear is filled with a constant sense
of grace. In tbe same way a sustained note is
Dever held by her for an instant, an appreciable
lapse of time, without either increasing or dim'n
: isbicg tho volume of her voice."
This prsite requires no ualifcatlon, and to ap.
I preciate it one has only to compare the ceaseless
vanish or crescendo of Jenny Lind's t"ne with the
prolonged, unmitigated organ-pipe intensity of
some bawling tenor in a country choir, who m ja'
surc-s tut dead lengths of sound for every nntoi
witliOtit any lieat of rhythm or any sign of life be?
tween its beginning and its end.
i. Style, however, must be also imlwi lual, a,,d
hence it is 10 often criticised with ra.'ercnja to
expression, tatling, passion. We by no means
trust cur ability to characterize or analyse the an.
s c?! individuality named Jt.vsr LlND Bhosoems
to ns to have the soul of passion, rather than tho t? m'
perament of passion. The passion in her (without
which there could he to genius) lies deep. It is
not on the lutface, and in the manner, and like ir?
ritable nerves, pleading with all possible pathos
upon every small occasion. It is not sensuous
passion such ss excites and thrills the easy sensi?
bilities of ihe exclusive lovers of Italian Opera,
and nurses that delicious languor which degene?
rates with evety repetition. Kvery Italian Opera
is inspired mainly by one passion, that of sexua'
love, and henco the sweet sadness, which it has
led many persons to associate with the very thought
of music The Swedish singer ha* not commonly
cboien that mutic, and therefore has not sunj us
into melancholy. Where she has chosan it, cs in
Ihe romanza from Robert le Diable,?and, as we
I doubt not, in her whole part of Alice, or Agttthain
Di r Freyichuitz, she has proved pathetic.
I But she has the Northern strength &n I depth of
intellect; she has the spiritual rather than the sen.
suous form of passion. And yet her music is not
i any cold abstraction. Like a true artist, she re
j spects the senses, and with rapture hears and
translates Nature in her song. Tho echo of her
; mcuttain home is in her melody. She has ere*
ative imagination, genius. Like Shakespere's po.
etry, her song is vital in whatever theme or char
acter. She vocalizes all experiences, as the great
German composers reproduce all they know of mm
and nature in their instrumental symphonies, so?
natas and fantasias. If she is not always thrilling
or pathetic, it is because her genius cannot all tbe
time be sieging one intense monotonous psrsonaii'
ty. Neither ihe Norms, nor th? St. Cecilia can be
properly set up si the toll types and ideals of song,
j Song may be mtcy sided, universal, genial and im.
j personal as Shaiipere. We do not ask i, to be.
I a.11 the time impassioned; we only ask that it be !
' vital, that it have soul and genius in it, and that It j
; be not merely learned by rote.
It is curious to notice who they are who bring the !
complaint of coldness against Jenny Lind's singing, j
Most of tbem are persons who swetr by Don?attl
and Bellini, and who consider (to speak a la Car
lyle) that the "rose-pink" sentiment of their opera*
is infinitely more indicative of soul and genius than
the grandest symphony of Beethoven, or tbe finest
overture cr song of Mendelssohn.
Equally curious has it been to notice that the
coldly critical, and less enthusiastic of the dilettanti,
are frequently the ones who ask to feel more
' warmth and passion in the music of the Nightingale.
; The warmer amateurs find her tones reach the
right spot in them. Is it that each hearer needs
tbe complement and offset of himself J But why
ask to be thrilled and moved to tears by music 1?
Beethoven said; "True music does not draw tears,
it draws fire, and make you fee! strong,"?or some
! thing like that.
Again, dramatic passion is required of Jenny
; Lind, when tbe is not tinging in a drama. Upon
I the Concert itage it is her good taste, rather than
her cc.'d humanity, which dictates readings rather
; tban repretentations in her operatic telectiocs.
At all events, the programmes, rather than t'te
airger, should be held responsible for their ditap
: pointment, who have expscted to bo moved and
I melted acd to feel their souls on lire within them
j Of this we bave spoken cur mind fully before.
Jenny Lied has shown abundant proof ot her lyric
i acd dramatic power She hss shown the vent
] taitty that succeeds in great varietiet of song.
; There wss a glorious inspiration and abandon in
her voice and look and manner when she ?an??
the Aon paventar of Mozart. Give her such field,
give her the treat Gerran musio, whether io the '
opera or the oratorio, or the scngs of Schubert and
cf Mtrdelssobn, nd they who know tba ieelteg of
ihat rr.utic will not miss it in her *;o*h? tht.-eof,
ur'es? we lgvt dreamed the iinpreasioos *e I ^e
gi t of her. The music which ha? ra'!en tohsr part
in these s"x jreat popular cuncrr s baa not by any
n rans been worthless, if n.u. h of it wa? 1>?:,"'?.
it wus r.,t withcut character, ao that her gen'il
! umanity cnuld not find some expression iu it. U
all appea'ed to at least two chords in as worthy to
be tdotred?to our ba;vy, natural love of lire. aad
to car innate sentiment of Beauty. Tbe :rowd?
wbeni she delighted heTC, at thesame time, caught
?o?i^tilog from feer of tbe spirit of Art, which is
the very spirit thRt must save oar Republic and
make earth a heaven, if that ever is to be.

So view such a quantity of balmy, sunny-cheeked,

and brought a sudden moisture to the roots of the
tongue. A note accompanying the basket inform?

New-Jersey. These were the first fruits of Asso?

we did not long delay testing tbeir quality. It is
impossible to describe their frsgrant, delicions fla"

tbo delights of the " Pivotal Period" of the.world.
We, (the Items) who know little of Association,
have frequer.tly been told that " the Groups dis?

any definite idea of what the Harmonies were.?
We must confess that in this instance, the distri?
bution thereof by the "Orchard Group" created
great satisfaction in the " Editorial Group o' The

blished Church of England. We have not room
for bis remarks, which are incidental to the matter
in question. He then, in answer to the letter of
Mr. E. Cunard, Jr., repeats his statement conoern
'Eg the profane language used by Mr. Co father.
I cow explicitly slate again, on tha -authority of
Mr. William G. Lambert, of tha firm of A. dc A..
jLawrenoe ?% CO. of Boston, that he did swear pro?
fanely; and that he admitted the fact hirssolf In my
hearing and in the hearing of Prof. MoClintock of
this city
j A letter from Mr. Lambert is appended, in which
tbe latter says, describing a conversation he had
with Mr. Cunard, on the subject of worship on
I board the steamers :
Mr. Cunard then remarked " that he was per
'; fectly aware that Americans would give a prefer?
ence to their own steamers just so soon as they
he*! sufficient confidence in them, and 'damn them
let them stay away from us if they wish to,' (or
some similar expression) It i?, however, due to
Mr. Cunard to state that ho immediately remarked,
"i! always provokes me to have Americans threat?
en to go by other boats, and I regret having los',
my temper."
This is the substance of my conversation with
: Mr. Cunard respecting the Company's regulations,
j so far as I can recollect. The reason I related this
? conversation to you and others on board tbe 4afa
! was, that you mirrht know bow sensitive Mr. C.
! was on tbe subject, before you spoke to him on the
i subject
Mr. B. then addresses Capt. Judkins in a vein of
caustio pleasantry:
I now turn myself to you, Capt. Judkins. And
I as you are a quati clergyman, you will allow me
j to assume a brotherly freedorn with you, and a
fidelity somewhat more pointed than I have felt
called to exercise with Mr. E. Cunard, Jr. And
my first remark is that you ought to be ashamed
of such an unmsnly dodge as your letter is. We
are always accustomed to expect frankness and
boldneis In a seaman, bat in your case, where tbe
seaman and the clergyman are both confined In
one, we had a greater right to expect a manly
Mr. B. denies that he ever charged Capt Jed
kins with gambling, but reiterates his statement
of the latter piaying at cards, which he substan?
tiates by aJetter from Mr. Jimes Bishop, of the
firm of Bishop ft; Co of this City. The latter gen
tjemta says;
in answer to your inquiry, I would state that on
several occasions during tbe recent passage of tbe
Asia I saw Capt. Judkins engiged in card playing,
In the dining saloon. I recollect distinctly upon a
Saturday eveniDg witnessing the ends of both
tables occupied, on the une side of the saloon by
Cspt. Judkins and a party of ladies and gentlemen,
ami on the other side by Mr. Canard and another
Not content with making good his statement,
Mr, Beecber takes up Capt Judkins on his super?
fluous denial:
Bat, Sir, sim e you have chosen to go out of your
way, and to introduce this subject of gambling
yourself, I may be allowed to lay aside farther
scruples. And although 1 do not bclieva that you
did gamble on the passage ia which I had trie
pleasure to be a passenger with you, you have
hitherto been accustomed to gambling ou your pas?
sages and with your passengers ' flaveyounever
indulged yourself in betting on tho run of your
stesmers from day to day.' These things are no
torious. Witnesses of your gambling, at vario .1
times, acd on diflerett steamers of this line under
your command, abound. Yon will not deny it. If
you abou'd, I am prepared with the most unan
answersb.'e testimony.
The following is the winding-ap of Mr. Uoecber's
article :
I am cow done with you, gentlemen, ia so far ss
the newspapers are concerned. I know perfectly
well, and you know perfectly weil, both of you.
that tbe facta which I have stated arid tbo charges
which I have made will be very mach to your per
sols! prejudice sad.to the damage of tha reputa?
tion of your sWamers. Why, then, since the door
is open, do you not, if 1 am a false witness, convict
me of it 1 I have said that Mr. Canard, the agent
of the Company, declared that the rule was that
tbe Episcopal service only was allowed on his
steamers, and that the caotiin or an Episcopal
clergyman alone must officiate; I have declared
that ox the recent trip of the Asia, wish nine
clergymen on board- there was no preaching at all
ai'owed the first Sabbath, and that on tbe second a
clergj man of the Estab ished Church of Scotland
was allowed by Mr. Cunard, in violation of his rule,
to rreacb j 3 bavesaid that when approacbedontb j
snbji-ct be lost his temper, and beside much mofe,
said of American passengers, if tneydj aotobjose
my lice, '? damn them, lit tlurn stay away ." I ba^o
le'dtti?? in tbe presence of myself to-.t Prcf Mr:
Ciintcck, of No ?--York, ho had to A en tho*, win
the additional remark tnat "the; to haii :"
acd I i ow add. mat ?t.?e ap.'iosiz-nst for the 1
of I t? temper, ho did not apologize for his remarks
upon the American traveling public, but madd
ibeui yet cnore eaiphatio. I charged Captain Jud
k'lsin try first article with card phjing cn the re?
cent voyage of the Asia; and I n >W have addad he
further charge of notorious gambling in former trips
of various steamers which he has cornnanded. I
stand ready to prove whatever I h&vo said before
the Courts of my country. If Mr. Canard or Capt.
Judkirs decline such an imoartia! investigation,
then let tbe public judge which of ua has spoken
thet-ruthand which has uttered falsehood.
EnscorALDioci3A.fi Convention ?The Sixty,
sixth Convention of the Protestant Episcopal
Church in the Diocese of New Yo'k commenced
Its sessions in our City at 8C John's Chapel, on
Wednesday evening last, and adjourned at a late
benr last evening. The subjects brought before
the body at this session have not been marked by
any remarkable degree of interest, public or pri?
vate. It was supposed that tbe case of tbe Bishop
would exoite another animated and lengthened de?
bate, but the resolutions bearing upon this iubjeot(
introduced by Rev. Dr. Parks of Trinity, and Mr,
J. Augustine Smith, were last night withdrawn by
the movers, and the expected breeze passed over.
The Anniversary exercises of the Diocesan Socle
ties gave an encouraging picture of the results of
the labors of the past year. Episcopal services
have been performed in the Diocese by Bishop
Chase of New-Hampshire, and Bishop Whit,
tingham of Maryland. We have in typeaaum
mary of the services performed by each, in re?
sponse to the invitation of the Standing Committee
! during the year?which, with the remainder of our
full report of yesterday's proceedings, will appear
The Diocese has been cal'ed to mourn the de.
< ease during the past year of the following clergy?
men Rev. Amos Pardee, Rev. Henry W. Sweet,
zer, Rev. Philip K. Milledoier and Rev. Isaac
ffhe vexed question of admitting Colored
Churches to a voice in tho Convention, was reviv?
ed yesterday, as will be seen by our report io an
other column. The subject was again compelled
to psss without a decision?the ground of objection
being that tbo application of the parishes were too
' remote for present action. The Convention ad
! jonrned at so early a period that a renewal of the
applications was rendered impracticable. The
matter accordingly lies over till another year.
The sessions of tho Convention this year have
therefore produced nothing worthy of particular
i notice. Their continuance has been unusually
limited , but the transactions have been charao.
{ terized throughout by the greatest harmony and
; good feeling. _
j The Equinoctial.?Our bright, beautiful Sep
tember weather of the past week or two, was too
bright and beautiful to be continued longer. Tho

About midnight on Wednesday night, the hazy
veil which had been gathering in the atmosphere
for two days previous, deepened into rain, and
. yesterday morning opened dark and drearily, with
j a drenched .earth and a drizzling aky. Aboa
! noon the vapors lifted, and for the rest of tho day
? we bad no fafn, but a' cold, raw wio<*\from the

Bust ok Gen. Scott-Oa visiting the studio
of Mr. Jones, the 8culptor, yesterday, we found
him engaged on a bust of Gen. Scott, whicb>
judging from its present sppeiracce, will be, when
finished, the most vigorous and characteristic haad
i of the gallant old chieftain ever modeled. The
bead is turned toward ooo side, the eyes slightly
? ii'ted, and the lips just parted sufficiently to obvi
ate that tet expression which the mouth is too apt
to wear, in busts The expression Is one of at?
tention, mixed with command. We know not
why, bat there was something in the sentiment
of tbe face and the lift of the head, which at once
' recalled to our mied the Valley of Mexico, and the
tcenes of Scott's most signal triumphs. Such an
expression bis face may have worn, when from
his station at Tacubaya he watched the storming
colomns of his.arroy climbing the Hill of Chapulte
pec. It is a bold, massive, vigorous bead, with a
Romin cast of energy and inflexibility of purpose.
The work will do honor to Mr. Jones, and cannot
fail to give complete aatiafaction to the maoy |
friends of Gen. Scott.
