Let tae k£l that this cordiality of the Austrian
irree' world toward the Viennese Rothschilds does
:.ot extend to The other members of the Jewish
race or to the. "haute finance." Indeed, both the
father ar.d the fi?t?rs of Baron Albert were kept
wiih'jut Urn port of the old aristocracy, whose
thresholds they were never allowed to cross. It
may be rcmt:ribered that Count Tassilo Festeticz

of Cromartie. which had remain*] dormant slnco
th«? carl's death In 1833, was called out of abeyance,
by Queen Victoria, In favor or his eldest daughter,
the present Count*** of <_'romart!e.
I may add that If the crown restored to the Ma.-
ker.zic family th" t'romartir estates which ha! been
forfeited at ihe time of the conviction of the Jacob
ite earl in 1715 for his treason, It was because his
son rendered such gallant service ns an officer of
the British army in the American War for Jnd.^iend
dence that, as a reward, his father's possessions,
though not the honors, were returned to him.
Dr. Clirysander. who was for so many years the
medical attendant and private secretary of the great
Prince Bismarck, after the tatter's, retirement from
office, has now recovered from the "nervous mal
ady" which rendered It necessary for him to retire
for a time to a sanatorium near Hamburg. If the
friends of the doctor are to be believed, the malady
was largely due to Prince Herbert Bismarck, who
raised the most vigorous objection to the publica
tion last spring of the first instalment of his "rem
iniscences" of the great Chancellor. These "remin
iscences" were of great interest, and Inasmuch as
the doctor was bound by contract with his pub
lishers to pro et»i T^-iih their publication, he found
it Impossible to comply with Prince Herbert's de
mand, save by declaring himself to be ill and retir
ing into the seclusion of a sanatorium. Prince Her
bert's death has been followed by Dr. < hrysand r
sudden restoration to health and by the announce
ment that ho is immediately to resume the publica
tion of his reminiscences of Princa Bismark.
Lord Brsmpton's reminiscences, which have just
been published, are full of good stories. There is
one. however, which I miss, and which yet de
serves to be placed on record. Possibly he omitted
it, fearing to offend Sir Arthur Channel!, one of
the justices of the King's Bench Division. For the
story la rather at the expense of Sir Arthur's
father, a Judge like himself and a baron of the
Court of Exchequer. One day the late Baron
Ch&nnel] was trying a marine collision case In tho
Admiralty Court. He was a very clever Judge, but
a sad cockney, dropping his aspirates at every
opportunity and often placing them where they did
not belong. The name of the ship which had been
run down off Dover was the Hannah. The Judge
persisted In calling her th« 'Anna. Finally John
(afterward judge) Huddlestone. who was the coun
sel fer the .lefei cc. gravely asked his intimate
friend and fellow wit. Lord Brampton (at that
t.me Henry Hawkins Q. C), who appeared for the
plaintiff, whether his "learned brother*' would be
good enough to inform him what was the real
rame of the vessel that had been run down, since
part of the timo she was being called the Hannah
and the remainder of the time the 'Anna.
"Gladly," replied Hawkins, rising to the occa
sion; "the real name of the vessel whose owners
1 represent is the Hannah. But the 'H 1 has been
lost In the chops of the Channell."
This is but one of a number of good stories
which one looks for in vain In Lord Brampton's
memoirs, but which, perhaps, through his modesty
and the f*»ar developed in his old ape of giving of
fen to friends by witticisms, have been omitted
from his wonderfully Interesting and fascinating
book. Perhaps nothing can bettor paint the man
than the remark, in connection with his lovo for
animals, which l have heard him make on several
occasions, and which he was fond of proclaiming,
namely: "I am fond of every kind of beast, except
a hypocrite."

The Kneisel Quartet.
At th?ir second concert for the season, which took
place In Mendelssohn Hall last night, Mr. Frank
Kneisel and his fellows of the delightful confra^
tornity that bears his name brought forward a
new work of great age. a quartet by Beethoven,
and. with tha help of Josef Hofmann. a pianoforte
quintet by Rrahrns— three works by Dr. yon Bil
low's trinity, of R's. Tho numbers by Beethoven
nnd Brahms are familiar to the lists, and are never
permitted to fade out of tho memory of the' true
lovers of chamber music, whose number Is large In
New-York, us the crowded hall last night attested,
whose taste is good, and whose approval must be
as sweet Incense to true artists. Therefore
Messrs. Kneisel. Theodorowlcs. Svecenskl and
Schroe.ier must have again been made glad. The
familiar numbers were the Quartet In C, op. 69,
No. 3. the Pianoforte Quintet In F minor, op. 84.
This novelty, weighted with years was a piece for
-strings by Bach, the master of fugue, to which
the Beethoven finale seemed to offer Itself as an
admiring tribute. The story of this Bach compo
sition was told in Tho Tribune last Sunday. On tho
authority of Professor Hermann Sohroeder. who in
troduced It a year or two ago into the modern con
cert list. It was set down as a quartet. It cannot
be said that the professor's arguments are conclu
sive. The fact that the conUnuo for the cembalo
was not figured Is amply explained by the fact
that the string parts fill out the harmony
independently of the accompanying Instrument,
and that In one place there is a direction, "violon
cello solo." Indicates no more than a desire for a
change In color effect. The first four movements
'the second was omitted) would surely sound better
If played by a. string; orchestra, though It must
be confessed that the brilliant finale, called "Ca
priccio," can scarcely be imagined in more effective
form than that in which it appeared last night. It
is a most refreshing; and fascinating quartet num
ber, and deserves to live In the modern chamber
music list. even If it must bo dissociated from Its
Mr. Hofmann performed his task In the Brahms
quintet with obvious sympathy, and helped the work
to warm tho hearts of its hearers, as It always
does when well played. It Is a peculiarly winning
work, with Its pretty gypsy echoes In the first
movement. Its ingratiating folksong sentiment in
the slow movement and its chlvalresque, Schuman
esque swing in the scherzo. Too great predomi
nance of the pianoforte In the scherzo proclaimed a
want of complete understanding between Mr. Hof
mann and his associates, but, as a rule, there was
delightful harmony of understanding between the
players, and. in consequence, also a delightful
lucidity of utterance. The moist atmosphere
caused some whlstllrg of the strings, but the chap
ter of accidents was short and the Kneisel audi
ences understand these things. M. Colonne, of
Paris, was among the delighted listeners.
Francis Rogers gave a song recital In Mendels
sohn Hall yesterday afternoon which afforded
much pleasure to a large audience, and was, be
sides, a source of satisfaction to the many well
wishers for the continued ortlstic gTowth of this
young native barytone. Mr. Rogers opened his
recital with four songs by Handel, Bchubert, Grieg
and Beethoven— the "Busslieil ' of the last com
poser Then followed the Schumann song cycle,
"Dlchterliobe." Mr. Rogers brought to the dif
ficult task of singing this work, In addition io a
sweet and well conducted voice, the Intelligence of
culture and art'.silc sympathy. A certain monotony
of mood, a lack of shading and vocal variety, may
doubtless bo urged ngainst his performance. But
Heine, littlw lyric by lyric, bull* up out of. after
nil. not widely differing moods the total mood of
the Poet's Love cycle, and Schumanr. lovingly
followed him. Th^ variety is variety within unity,
the whole Is more than tho parts; and the spirit
of the whole Mr. Rogers did catch and communi
cate. He was most happy, perhaps, in the Indi
vidual songs. In the. tenth lyric of the cycle: he
allowed that song most fully to speak its own
message. But in the eleventh, too, he slid from
lightness Into woe in a singlo line, without eft'or'
or ostentation, in tho characteristic manner of
Heine, ai.d here of Heine's musical interpreter.
David Bisipham, who has already sung the cycle
here this season, was an interested auditor.
Mr. rtogers closed his recital with a group of
lighter songs, Irish, Scotch and English, and by his
capital enunciation and hl3 spontaneous gayety.
especially in the Irish songs, quite won h!s audi
