[COMMUNICATED.
I'm vat n Scikek Musicals.?Seldom has
it been our good fortune to attend a concert
where excellence predominated in every part,
but on this occasion the directors of the Acad
emy of Music, Mr. Palmer and Mr Crouch.
] ravided an entertainment for tho lovers of
music un'urpa&ed in the annal* of Washing
lLirton, the occasion being the inauguration
of this musical institution. The lecture room
was tastefully arranged, hiving a rained plat
form some 18 inches nigh in tho centre of the
hall in front, aod round which at the beauty,
intellect, wealth and fashion of the city. The
programme was filled with choice and classi
cal morceaus Kalkbrenner's grand quintette
in C, con.menced tho concert, performed by
Me#-rs. Palmer, Kieckhoefer, Crouch, Berg
man and his son. The combination being
nth'tck*. we need soarccly add, that the exe
cution of this quintetie was brilliant in the
extreme. The violoncellist having resign* 1
bi" instrument, what was our surprise to find
in him the composer F Nichalls Crouch, the
v -cal dirtctor of St. Matthew's church, and a
singer of great dramatis power Ilis fir. t ef
I rt was a scena, 44 Friend of the Brave," by
Dr. CaiitoU, a glorious specimen of English
son' writing, and as gloriously rendered, his
n.an>y voice rolling forth in colossal strength
through every ear and heart. Ilis style is
pure and unaffected, his manner confident in
his ability, and bis impersonations of tho au
thor truthful, fearless and faultless. Just
such a man was required in our midst, and
with pleasure we record the fact of his being
?^-sjciate muter iu the Academy of Musie,
with our pianist, Mr Palmer. Next in order
f'llowed " Duo C jncertante," violin and piano
fjrte, in which the beauties of the violin were
poured forth in artistic excellence, by the pu ;
pil of the great Lafont, and never was master
and style more judiciously and tastefully ren
dercd ; his tone is liquid, round, and full, and
his ]>o(tra>?ure of the music graceful in tho
extreme This was the gem < f the first part
ot the concert '4 Kathleen M tvourneen. ' a
song which has become the household word of
every family was next in order, sung by the
author, and to hear the song in its perfect
rendition, we coouaend every lover of the pure
ballad to go and bear the author'? reading?a
little drama in itself. so touehingly does be
render it. To Mr Palmer s abilities as a
pianist we bare bad sucb frequent occa
sions of drawing public attention that praise
is unnecessary. The instrument appears
created for bis masterly exhibitions, and no
musical conceit, or flight of fancy presonts
itself, but in giaut strength he grapples with
it, and every passage answers that master
touch of inspiration only possessed by gifted
minds such as Mr. Palmer s.
The second part opened in Beethoven's
Grand Trio in C minor, piano forte, violin,
and violoncello, the performance of whioh
was perfection, the combinations and quali
ties of the three executants being of that high
wrought nature, it was difficult to individual
ise either as superior to the other ; and, at
times, it was difficult to say whether one or
three persons played together, so oxact, and
with such pi4!iaion was it performod.
As a lyric and vocal i'lustration, wo would
particularise Mr. Crouch's " Wanderer " A
ui*>re refined and masterly reading of thi3 song
could not be given. Mendelssohn's Cantabilo
on tho violin, was a delicious repast; so much
so, that a unanimous encore was demanded,
and as elegantly complied with The evening
closed witli the improvisatore of the groat
pianist, in which he even excelled himself.
This terminated the concert: and a more re
lined, classical and brilliant affair honorablo
to tbe projectors, and satisfactory to the audi
tory, never grazed a hall in Washington. We
understand that these concerts are to he given
at regular stated times Success attend them.
Assault and Battery.?About 12 o'clock
on Saturday night, a Mr Rogers, who lives in
tho Seventh Ward, stepped out of his hou;o
on Four-and a half street near Maryland ave
nue, and was accosted by Poter Kurti, who
was standing alth others on tho side walk,
and asked it he was a Fremont man. lie re
plied that ho was no politician. Kurts then
asked if he was not a Fillmoro man7 Mr
Rogers told him 44 No," and was about walk
ing away when Kurtz struck him on the hoad
and knockod him down Kurts was arrested
by Mr. Neitx, of the auxiliary guard, and
ttken to the guard houso In tho morning ho
was held to bail in $200 for his appearance at
the Criminal Court.
Thr Concert To-Night, at the National
Theatre, pleasantly interests many minds, nnd
tho lovers of music, this morning thronged the
tickot iffico of that establishment to engage
seals for the grand performance. Parodi and
her troupe cannot fail to be gratified with this
demonstration in their favor?this apprecia
tion of their rare artistic talents. eleven
o'clock all the orchestra seats woro sccurcd,
ad w.ro many of those of tho droS3 circle, and
even the front range of seats were engaged
fur tho second concert to take place to-morrow
night. ?
