GRATES, Tile Hearths, Tile Facings, Them has been," says Sims Reeves in bi autobiography, "for some time past & de tided fait in tenors; not that there is no de mand for the article, but because the demand which really exists cannot be supplied. For in art the groat principle which rules is commerce does not bold good. On the con trary, instead of the demand creating th supply, it is the supply which creates or at least stimulates the demand. Quotations for firJ, rate prima donnas were never so high as they are now, yet never before were prima donnas so numerous. Np one, on the other hand, goes to the opera to hear a tenor, sim ply because there ore none of the highest dis tinction to hear. HIS VALUABLE THROAT. '"Think how every tenor, who wishes at all times to do his best, must regulate his life. must protect bis valuable throat against all possible and impossible draughts. He eats in the most sparing manner, when all Lon don sets him down as a glutton; drinks noth ing but claret and water, when by universal consent he is a flaming, fiery drunkard. Yon get your feet wet, are hoarse, and are well the next day. The more delicate, more sus ceptible tenor gets his feet wet, is hoarse and is not well the next day; and so long as he is unable to sing not only loses his money if he happens to be a concert singer but is usually regarded as an impostor, because he frankly and conscientiously declines to tor ture the ears of a public he has been in the habit of delighting. Tenors have their faults tike other mn. But they can scarcely, with any fairness, be accused of irregular habit. There is ni rofession, uidetd, which demands such absolute regularity of life, such punctu al ity In the performance of duties, as thatof the actor, aud alve all, of a singer, who, besides his general health, has bis voice- often a very delicate one to think of. In deed, the care toe tenor takes of himself amounts in many cases to fastidiousness. w hen be is on his travels, especially in our capricious, changeable climate, the tenor does really incur risks, and the care these delicate voiced singers are obliged to take of their valuable throats is something incredi ble to those who have not witnessed There are some tenors who seem to keep themselves constsntlv enveloped, as if cotton wool, and I have known more than one who would not start even on the shortest journey but ho must take with him a collec tion of scarves, wrappers and other band ages. Notwithstanding some drawbacks, the position of a tenor is, all the same, a fine one, aud if the great tenors are disappearing ft cannot be ss:d that such "enthusiasm as they were wont to excite is now called forth by baritones or Passes. THE PRIMA DONNA. "The prima donna is not only as great favorite as ever, but is often the only mem ber of an operatic cost to whom every sort of favor is shown. For her exclusively is re served the admiration which was former!; shared by the prima donna, contralto, tenor, baritone and bass. In these matters there no dictating to the public; but, whatever the fact may signify, a fact it is that, whereas Mine. Patti, Mme. ilason, Mme. Albani and Mme. Gerster are sought for in all countries and travel in the character of sun to the most distant lands, none in any part of the world seem to care much frr the voice of any tenor, baritone or bass now on the Italian operatic stage," Amateurs and srrngjriing genius wiu do well to ponder ov.t these remarks about singing masters. 'I should like," says Mr. Sims Reeves, "to make a short digression, and comment on the great evils arising from tho pretensions of musical quacks, who offer to teach singine without posse ssing one of the necessary qualifications; indeed, 1 could count the really cicver professors of singing on my fingers. A carpenter, house painter, or any other mechanic has to serve an apprentice ship in order to learn his craft, but all that tho charlatan prcrfessor' of singing requires is a brass door plate, and an unlimited amount of 'cheek. Manv a voice, which was naturally sweet and sympathetic, has been irreparably ruined by this system ; yes, and 1 regret to say, the monstrous-evil is growing, by reason of ad- f!nr. Ficrlirh St nnr.

This peculiar stride is supposed to be caused by sitting cross-legged so long in riding in the chair, and seeing it one at once infers, as is desired, that the person is a gentleman and accustomed to being borne about from place to place rather than to walking. AJso the speech and manners change with the promotion to gentility. A Corean can instantly detect a gentleman by his form of speech. The vulgar forms of the commoner are dropped and the more ele gant expressions of the gentleman are culti vated. While in the house the gentleman is strict in enjoining the observance of all the respect due him from bis women, children, relatives and friends. With the laboring classes there is more home life; tbey sit down together to eat their meals, and tbey smoke when and as they please, while the son or wife of a gentleman may only smoke in his presence on special permission.

Hewitt's War Serrioea. When the war broke out Mr. Hewitt placed his services at the disposal of the government at Washington, lie was not fitted either by nature or training for military position, but be possessed a technical knowledge ox iron manufacture and remarkable sirill in diplo macy which made bis services of far greater value to tbe government than If be bad been a graduate of west Point or Annapolis. On two occasions be was sent abroad by Presi dent Lincoln as the accredited representative of the government. On both occasions be was tbe 1 carer or letters rrom secretary Stanton to Minister Adams in London, who was directed toco-operate with Mr. Hewitt in everything that the latter did. When Secretary Stanton came into office be found himself confronted with a great civil war and discovered to bis consternation that there was no gun iron made in the country. The position of the government was a peril ous one. Mr. Hewitt's technicaj knowledge of the manufacture of iron made his services in this juncture of great value. It was nec- ,rv to have the gun barrels made here and ! tbe secret of their maniifacturo must be dis- j covered. When be arrived m England Mr. Hewitt adroitly managed to effect an entrance into the gun iron works of the Marshall Iron com pany. Visitors were not allowed to enter tbe works and be had to resort to strategy in order to effect bis purpose. He watched tbe process of making gun iron, mastered it, and on bis return home introduced it into the United States. Witb several large mills under his control Mr. Hewitt immediately set to work to make gun iron, and witb such success that he pro duced all that was used during the last three years of the war. In tbe making of this gun iron Mr. Howitt extricated the government at Washington from an exceedingly embar- raasinz position and enabled it to place arms quickly in tbe soldiers1 hands. Kot only did Mr. Hewitt make no pront on bis work, but he actually incurred a heavy loss. The secre tary ot war offered to secure him mdamnity. but Mr. Hewitt declined it, as be also did tbe proposition that congress should tender him a vote of thanks. Iff w York Times.
