Morris oberly, Fratu is J Jiven special attention to pood com itself with the af- I sinuated itself, and was engaging fectior.s and iasions of man. It is directly an expression of iiun's thoughts and of those tender fei lintrs and imaginations w hich also g-ive rise to poetry, its sister art. Music is sister or parent of poetry and both are invariably linked together. Al though musio may owe much of its attraction to the senses, yet it essentially originates in the mind. The former may b entirely wanting in an appreciation of its boundless effect, whilf-t the latter may breathe all that can be said to apply to the most beautiful strains. Alexander Pope who had such trreat power.-, of versifi cation. ould not appreciate music, and Carr'ck, the actor, and th friend of Joldsrnith was quite ndiffer er.t to the moat simple melodies or most enchantir.s strains, not even in the jolly choruses which nis friends indulged in. did he dliht. Thus should the effects of muse., its source and expression, be judged, not by the prn-Jticed ear. bo by the rode and untutored mind. It is by examining and referring to all lasse i of men that we conclude it to be appreciated by the all, if not by senses only, at least by the affection. The backwoodsman or farmer, who. from day to day toils in the sweat of his brow but who in his rural home, breathing the pure, unadulterated air, and ad miring the works of an omnipotert flod. would not ex change his lot for that o" a king gives expression alike to his joy and his sorrows by means of music. The hirpint; of the cri?ket. the endless ariations of the mocking bird or the sweet melodies of the nightingale, are appreciated bes by him. He sings while he works: he drives away v.-e'ess care with song. Tt is the songs of the rural horr.s tat our poets have so delighted to imitate songs in which all the expressions of the human heart are expressed in the most humble, tender and attractive form. Music is not ashamed to enter the lowliest hovel where a fond mother sings her lullaby to her darling with as much love and affection as the queen in her palace. What, indeed, would this world b if music were absent, if man could not breathe in more delicate expressions, his ir.most feelings than in the cold words of language? W--ii nothing can please, or bring con solation to th" mil that is overburdened with sorrow, when even tears an brine; no relief, sorg can still comfort it. Music, in truth, ac ompanles man through life, from his very birth even unto death. Children scarcely able to listen, already delight to imitate pome pleasant strain heard before. What pleasure is there not in the chorus of the schoolroom? the sweet melo dies that ever remind us when we too were among those happy, careless children, unacquainted with the realities of iifp. What sweet recollections of home and j friends and boon companions an we bring back to our 1 memories without music end song being associate'! j with them? Truly, what is home without a mother? but likewise, what Is home without music a home J where never the Joyful, ringing laughter of the chil dren is heard, where never a musical strain seeks abode? Truly fueh a home is lacking the attractions of ope winch we picture to ourselves. Finally, when that wonted vigor of manhood's years has left us, when on the verge of the grave, music regrets not our acquaint ance. And then, after the soul has departed for other than earthly realms, the sad, solerrn and slow strains f the dirge, together with the intermingling beats of the muffled drum, do homage to the cold, lifeless re mains of man and bespeak the anguish and the sorrow which the departure of a friend or relative has caused in the hearts of those left behind. Thus the effect on man individually, and when considering mankind In general, it makes itself equally prominent. How could we celebrate national festivals in a manner befitting the occasion without it? Would not a spirit of Joy, emotion and rapture be wanting which lmd such a magic effect to public entertainment? How the audi ence in the opera listen with breathless awe to the end less and varied melodies of the orchestra? What en chantment is there not in all national music? what a feeling of love and patriotism? oh, what pleasure would man be refused to enjoy were music absent! The delight of childhood years, a source of pleasure in youth and manhood, a solace in old ace. and then yes. even beyond the grave, shall ti e music of the Celestial spheres and spirits greet our ears. Music, oh. how faint, how weak Languages fades before thy spell! Wliy should feeling ever speak. When thou canst breathe her soul so well? I'riendship's balmy words may feign. love's are e'en more false than they. h. 'tis only music's strain Can sweetly soothe and not betray. Feb. 7. 1SS0. .7. P. P. Paul Benz. leo Anderson.

For four and 20 miles along the river sides, and crosswise a di' -uirney. in all over 700,000 acres of virgin earth, both meadow and upland, ineluliiiff the present counties of Rensselaer, Albany and a goodly portion of Columbia, swept the splendid baronial domain of Jonkiver Kiliaen Van Rensselaer, the pearl merchant of Amsteidam and the founder of the celebrated family in America. Before coming to America, the Van Rensselaers were people of im portance in Holland, respected and honored by their countrymen, held many positions of trust, and their name tigures constantly as Burg masters, councillors, treasurers, etc., in many of the important towns of their native country. The patroonship of Rensselaers wytk passed from one to other of the members of this family up to the mid. lie of the 18th century, when Stephen Van Rensselaer, in 176", began the erection of what he con sidered would be the finest manor house in America. The year can be continued by conspicuous letters forged out of wrought-iron and fas tened on one of the outer walls. This manor house stands today rather iles3late in appearance, on a plain near the Hudson river, not fir distant from the site of the old lb lava n house, in Albany. It is said that thLs historic man sion was built upon the foundations of an ancient brick manorial resi dence erected by ti e first patroons of Rensselaerswyck. The present dwelling was commenced and tir.ish ed. except the modern wings, by Stephen Van Rensselaer, whose wife was the daughter of Phillip Iivlngs ,'oii. a signer of the declaration of i 'idependcnce. The architecture is simple and colonial, but elegant in appearance, especially amid its surrounding groe of grand old forest trees. It is a very charming place now. and in its day must have been magnifi cent. Although still in possession of the descender.!. of its early owners, it has r.ot been inhabited for a nvm ber if years. The house is approached from the lodge gate through an avenue shad ed by rows of ancient trees. The en trance hall is :13 feet wide and is decorated with the identical paper brought from Holland at the time the house was buil. having the appearance of old fresco painting. Mi either side of the hall are apart ments some : " fe t w ile. There are the great drawing rotuns. the state bedroom ami the spacious library, which was formerly lined with rare volumes, and in which the book oa"s f highly 'li-bd wood, or eupy at b-a-t 7 feet of wall spa.e. All of the ceiling of the raansioaj urer and recorder. are very lofty, and fine old wood carvings abound upon every side. On the left of the main hall, near the entrance, is a large ballroom and back of this was the living room of the family, whence a charming view of the garden and lawn could be obtained. leading- up from "bere Is the grreat staircase, said to have been manu factured in Amsterdam. Beyond is the dining room, running from front to back, and as vide as the main hall. Here formerly hung those in teresting portraits of the earlier members of the Van Rensselaer family, now so widely scattered amongst their various desoendents. In this old dining hall was held many a rare feast that had almost regal splendor. The mansion has a large base ment, with kitchen, cellars, wine ! vaults, and, in fact, an arrangement similar to that of any English coun- try house. The upper stories are ! divided into some source of bed - i chambers, whilst the second floor ; corresponds in rooms and hall, but. of course, for different uses, to the : first floor. - Seldom has a house a more splen- ' did historj- or romantic origin than this relic of feudal .splendor and j colonial hospitality. Frected upon i or nearby the site of the first ' manor-house, it recalls the stirring i scenes enacted in old Peter Stuy- vesant's time. Here in the earlier j days of the manor, when its pa- j troons were really veritable feudal : lords, and possessed nearly as much ' power, both judicial and military, as any old Norman baron, within his j own fort, with his own cannon : frowning through the stockade. ! manned by his own armed vassals, ; under his absolute command, and j with the pennant of the Rensse laers lluttering in the breeze, the patroon. or his director, accepted the allegiance of hi subjects, ad ministered Justice in civil suits and criminal cases, and on of .-.üions de fied to the last breath the authorities of the province. After the erection of the present manor-house, in 1 7 6 ä . the tenants ilocke.l hither to tender anew their oath of fealty to the patroon. The fame of this great barony and the reputed wealth of its lords, to gether with the great popularity which they continued to enjoy, ex tended even to New York, which in tlse days wa- a far-off journey, and it Is said thnt whn the people of that place learned that the pa troon was in town, they lined Broad way to view him as he passed in hi? coach with fvir liveried footman in great powdered wigs, and the Van Rensselaer arms glittering r-n the panels of his gilded coach, as if he were some foreign nobleman.

To cf t the measure of Mr. Lloyd Oorpe's accessicm to the premier ship it must be thought of as ome thinsr mof1 than a change of min ister?, a mere huftling of the po litical cards.
