THE GREAT HANDEL FESTIVAL AT THE CRYSTAL PALACE. [From the London Times, June 1> ] The ro?<I from Dulwich to the Palace yester day ha>l an appearance which we can only ex pect to see again to-morrow. It soemed a kind of Harmonic Derby day. but in every respect more orderly than the mixed riotous concourse which always marks that great equestrian sa turnalia. An immense crowd of people were collected outside the building, and remained there throughout the entire performances. They were certainly not unrewarded, for during the cho ruses the peal of voices seemed to swell from the building and fill the air, as though the Pnl nce itself wan a vast organ. The Hallelujah chorus could be distinctly heard nearly half a mile from Norwood, and its effect, as the sound floated on the wind, now high, now low. was impressive beyond description, and sounded as if a nation was at prayers. The change determined on at the rehearsal in the position of the choristers, by means ot which tha female singers were all brought together in front of the organ, and were conspicuous from every point, not only afforded an agreeable re lief to the eye. but added materially to the ef fect of the music. Tho different choral parts being now well balanced, the thunder of the ineu s voices no longer overpowered the more mellifluous tones of their fair companions and tellow-laborers. Another desirable improve ment was achieved by the establishment of screens at the back and sides of the orchestra, through which contrivance the sound, instead ?'f esc aping into the empty galleries and corri dors in the immediate neighborhood of that enormous amphitheatre of timber, was thrown directly upon tho area devoted to tho audience Among other objects in the orchestra that at tracted general interest were a portrait, a bust, and a full-length statue (in marble) of the great musician in wliose honor this festival was insti tuted. The Messiah, as every one who cares for mu sic is aware, was composed in 1741?planned, fketched and completed in the miraculously brief period of twenty-two days, having been commenced on the 22d of August and finished on the 12th of September ! A fortnight alter this the first part nf Samson was on paper Such prodigious rapidity, the very elaborate character o? the music considered, would be incredible haJ we not the authority of Handel s ?wn dates for the fact. This imperishable uias erpiece was first performed in Dublin on the "?th of April, 1712. with the utmost success. How this decision of tho sister isle bus been i tamped by the approving verdictoof the civil zed world?bow nearly a century and a quar er has elapsed since the composition ot the Messiah, without robbing it of one atom of its attraction?how to this day, when music has nade such strides and gone through so many phases. when Haydn. Mozart, Beethoven, and Mendelssohn have lived, and written, and died, musicians and cultivated amateurs, strength ened by the unanimous popular opinion, still fc*jk up to it as the greatest piece of sacrod rusic which the art can boast, we need hardly *sist. The solemn and impressive effect of its performance at the unprecedented celebration ;esterday. the devout attention, edification, ind delight of the multitude assembled to hear t. sufficiently attested that the Messiah was lot a work for yesterday, to-day. or to-morrow. *>ut for all time?one of those inspirations of ;enius for which we enn only account by at -ributing them to a higher source than that of imple human agency. The performance, as we have suggested, was vonderfully successful. The greatest effects, it nay readily be imagined, the extent and pecu larities of the arena being taken into consider ation, were produced by the choruses, of which the Messiah affords so astonishing a variety. AH of these "went'' more or less well, while ?ome surpassed in grandeur of tone, precision iad unanimity, anything we can call to mind. The most irreproachable were naturally those n which the occurrence of florid passages is .east frequent, and broad and massive harmony Is the j r >minent characteristic. The viry first :horus, '* And the glory of the Lord/" at once iisclosed the signal advantage gained by the aew disposition of the female voices. The trebles more particularly, which at times were scarcely audible during rehearsal, now came >ut with penetrating clearness. " And He ?"hall purify the son^ of Levi' is one of those :horal pieews abounding in florid divisions, and lere there was a good deal of occasional un steadiness, especially (strange enough, their lepth and solidity of tone considered.) among he basses, which, swing to and fro, were only revented from going astray by tho marvellous lecision of Mr. Costa's beat. " For unto us a :hild is born'' was perfect. ^ Th)t ra iJ burst?" Wonderful, Counsellor,'' ?lost nothing by this, but rather gained, since ? moment's reflection muat convince any one of lie absurdity of uttering the preceding words His name shall lie called''?in a tone ?:arofly audible, while the close of the annun lation??' Wonderful. Counsellor*'?the name tself?is shouted with the utmost possible loud tess. The audience, moved to enthusiasm by ?> fine a j>erformance, redemanded it obstrepcr usly; and their applause continued until the ?astoral symphony had been played half way hrough ; but the conductor was inexorable, nd resolutely declined to interrupt the course ?f the oratorio, for which he is entitled to the Qanks of all discreet persons. # The " Hallelujah'' (during which, according *? traditional custom the whole assembly re lained standing) was grand beyond desorip i >n. To be brief, no less can be said of the .-tounding chorus, '? Worthy is the Lamb. *ith which the oratorio terminates. The Ainen" o^ual in all resj>ects to tho llal ilajah," and constituted a fitting climax to I ne of the iuo?t impressive and exciting per irmances ever heard of the FUNERAL OF DOUGLAS JERROLD. [Fioni the London Daily News, June Hi. J Yesterday the mortal remains of Dou^lns errold were committed to the earth in Ncr /??od Cemetery, in presence of a large con ?urse of gentlemen known to literature and ? rt, who had come togeftier to indulge a gener ?<is sentiment at the grave of an honored friend, wnong others who were present we observed, !r.

T'nder the chair is sometimes a bottle of brandy, to be used medicinally in keeping up the courage of the patient; and even after that restorative, he will often insist upou the proprietor's accom panying him a little way upon the ice until he teels his legs, which he accomplishes, to all appearance, by stretching out his arms like a baby, and catching at the air. A skate-lender, with whom I s]Hike upon the smallness of the deposit, assured me that he had never lust but two pair in a long ex|>erionce. aud those under very peculiar circumstances. "A gentleman came to me," says he " some few years ago, to have a couplo of hours of it who said he had nothing about him underafive pmnd note He was so i?erfect a gentleman, so slap-up, *<, kiddy, that I said: Well, I'll trust y ?u.

' Why, because Hero, let ine go." says he; ?? hang the strap " and in a moment he'd pulled me down the bank, and broke away from me like a harrow from a bow.

Yes," says the gentleman, who had fastened his Htrap by tliid time, and came ^kimmini^ up quite close to us under the banks: " he's a bailiff, he is, and a very nice bailiff too?ain't y iu, Solomons' I'm sorry to be obliged to go so much faster than you with these here skates on. and so to be deprived of your valuable com pany. Ry bye. Solly:" and off ho went again, backwards, for ho was a real good skater. ?? Let me have a pair." says the bailiff pres ently. who was getting awfully riled. ' Certainly," says fj but I should like to see the five shillings first, for your friend has not lett a farthing with me." ;? He hasn't got a farthing," says the bailiff, grim enough. -Now, Mr. Halphonso Caven dish Oward. let us see who is the fastest;" and on wont the Jew after his game at a pace that was a caution to engines. '? Look out!" hollers I; Look out!" hcchoes the people; and the next moment, there they was, hare and greyhound, twistingand turning, and overshooting one another in a manner pretty to behold. Moses was the better man on the irons, out and out; and the other, finding him selt beat, stood out for the part marked l)an srtmi/s, with the Humane Societies a-hollerin" at him from both *ides, and him not caring one icicle. It was sink or swim with the gent, you sec all-ways; aud the bailiff?that I will say struck to him like a man. The ice quivered and cracked whenever they came together; and three times the Jew's hand was upon his collar, and three times he got away; when all of a sud den Mr. Oward start* off as hard as*he can go for the bridge, trust ng to his speed to take him over the rotten ice belore it had time to give ?ntul he did it too. He came right on to the place in front of the Skating Club yonder, and they do say he was as pale as ashes with the fright: but he got safe away anyhow?with my I a r of skates." ?? Ah, then," said I. after this long narration, " I supjMwe the Jews thought twice about fol lowing him under the bridge'" "No; he put the steam up. and tried it on too; but there he went in?he did." " Rless me said I, "it mu"t h?Tj been very hard to have rcscued him from such a po sition!" " It wai hard, I believe you, sir; and the inan was drowned?and that's how 1 lost uiy second pa r of skates." Leg-krokmaix.?A writer in the Boston Journal gives the following solution of the man ner in which the prisoner at Albany, N. Y., jail managed to change his pints when chained to the tl??or, a ring around Ins ancle: Draw your pants off the leg which is not chained, then put the bottom of the other leg of the | a its inside of the ring, between it and the flesh. Now draw down the pants, inside of the ring, till the whole leg and a p irt of the seat have gone through the ring. The impris oned foot may now be removed from the pants by passing it across their open top. Draw the pants up again, taking care that the foot does not slip in, nnd they may thu? be removed wholly from the body. The way to put on another pair, is to reverse the process. |L7* It is said that the lands in the paperoitle* of Minoexota and Iowa seii at greater prices than those of Columbus, Ohio.
