Tlie tloniinion which he exer cises over the human miiul by his in;tHic u.e tl the bow on the king of in HiriimeiitH, He violin, language fails to dest i ibe. Atoue moment the eyes of h m iiuilience aie almost Ullett with le:r, at ai.other the jmlse of all pres ent M'etu to tingle w ith delight. When l'agamni, the violin virtuoso, til sL up pearetl in London in 1S31, the report pieceded lim toat he had previously been imprisuned for a term of twenty j ears, and during this incarceration he was so pour that 1 e could not even pro vide himself with a proper instrument or strings for the same, lie therefore made a violin out of a wooden shoe, on which lie played almost constantly. At last he h. d but the string left on his instrument. It was then that l e lumpoted the beautiful and very dilli cult variations on Kossini's l'raer of "Moses in Egypt." These reports re sulted unfavorably to liim socially, but Ins artistic engagements were verj eiure.sidnl. Mr. Musinwill play this famous composition whenever re quested to do so on a violin having Lut une string, the Mr Musin is the only violin virtuoso who plays the original Taganini variations, having secured them from a relative of the famous Paganini, and possessing now the only copy in existence. The varia tions are so very intricate and deceptive as to fitcjueutly call forth doubt from violinists in the auilience as to their i-emg played upon one string, yet the violin upon which this great composi lion will be played is open to inspec tion from (ne and all. No virtuoso ;hu has traveled through America hus received such universal ovations fniu the public and such unanimous high praise liom the critics as Mr. Musiu. Many of our most eminent critics have pronounced him the greatest violinist living tuda,and the only violinist thai can be favorably compared with thegieat " YVieniawski."

Jacksonville, Flu., Times Union. With Musin Oct. lsih. Frederic Wr. Flliott, with Musin, has been a giand success in this comp;tn, as he possesses .i splendid tenor voice of great compass, leaching the high C with the utmost ease, which he has done every night the past season. He is one of the few artists who combine Volume with sweetness, sympathy and renned fee'ing. He is a native Ameri can, and a singer of whom this country ought to be proud. At Opeia House Oct. 18th. The tenor, Mr. F. W. F.lliott, culti vated his heaiers as few singers have done in Columbia, and made an im pression upon them that will not be soon forgotton. He has an exquisite Voice, as clear. as a bell and as sweet in tone as the most critical ear could de sire. His onl fault last night was that he was unwilling to sing as long and as often as the audience wanted to hear him. Columbia, S. C, The State. Opera House Oct. lHh. This will be Mr. Scharf a sixth sea son before the Ameiican public. This gentleman has the proud distinction of haying it erived the "Gieat Moscheles Prize" as solo pianist at the Liepzic Conservatory of music, at the Gewand haus Musical Festival. The European and American pre-s generally accord him the highest praise as one of the greatest pianist now before the public. Mr. Schaif has had great success as a pianist in this country during the past live seasons, ami each season he be comes a still greater favorite. Hear him with Musin Oct. H Annie Louis Musin the Prima Donna of the Musin Company is known as the American Nichting ile Soprano. She has created furore with her phenome nal range and wonderful execution. Mine. Musiu has a compass of three full octaves, ranging from (J below the stall to G above high C, which one and all pronounce marvelously sweet in tone. She is positively the only Prima Donna now on the Amei ican stage who possesses these qualifications, and i? mentioned by the Nev Voik Herald (in a recent date) in regard to ruige. execution and purity of tone, in coin paiisou to the great diva, Mine Peschka Leutner, the greatest colora ture singer of the present day.
