Tho Academy of Muslo was reopened on the 19th
of February, 18.W, under tho management of tho
very distinguished violinist, Ole Hull, who leased
that vast aud splendid void for a short season.
Among his artists wero Clollldo Tatil, Vostvall,
Hrlgnoll, and liadlall, and he oflorcd a prize of
31,000 for tho best original grand opera by au
Amorlcan composer on nn American subject, the
copyright to bo rctnlncd by tho author a vain
proposal and nn unvvtso limitation. Muslo Is not
cultivated thus, ncithorby prize giving nor by ef
forts to olovAto nrt and encourage native attlits,
and still less by Insisting upon natlvo subjects.
Tho wholo history of literature and of the fine arts
Is a robuko to such folly. It was lu keeping w 1th
this project that Ole Hull should go to tulh as a
manager wlih greater speed than nny of his pre
decessors, lie did not last two mouths, and his
short managerial career Is worthy of this brief
warning notice only because of his distinction as
a violin virtuoso, nnd becnuso In that capacity he

"My wood-choppers captured a sloth this

" Yes, I suspect thoso littlo Imps kept fooling

Judgo. "Lit's set that thing free, or he will

The old sloth held his prisoner as n spider holds
