If that notioe is correct why cannot the Professor favor u who are otherwise unable to hear him, with a public concert, iu which only compositions of the great masters would he introduced ? Such . a eoncert would be a rich tj?at to the true | lovers of music, and a set off against the tnsb which now a days till up concert programs <m.

Indeed, we could not havo believed it, had wo received our inform ation from any other source than the one we did. Why this ia the case we oannot say Purely it cannot result from a want of pubiic spirit upon the part of our business men and others It must be tbe result of thoughtless ness. Let it however, re.ult from *?hate>ei source it may, we have no hesitation in ng that it savors pretty atron* wf th6 rid;0i lous, End lor the credit of Georgetown, cur eusines.- mco, and others of extensive corres pondent, r bo h:ivo not already, should come forward, rent the remainder of the boxes, and thus in a small decree remunerate our old and faithiui public servant, (for we venture to as sert that no postmaster in theland has striven haider to please the public than has Mr Til ?y,) for his outlay in furnishing us with ac commodations we never had before. We in tend ibis bint mainly for those of our leading men and mercantile bout** that have hitherto stood aloof. The Georgetown Advocate of this morn^n*. contains an invitation, signed by some fifteen of our leading citiiens, of all religious denomi. nations, to Ben Perly Poore, Esq , to deliver a lecture for the benefit of the destitute poor of our city To which Mr. Poore re.-ponds in a very modest, and handsome manner, de*ignat irsg next Monday evening as tbe tine, Forres* pl?C6?
