LOCAL INTELLIGENCE.

Fuller. Punctually at eight the poet made l,i* appear ance, and, with quiet, undemonstrative ease vetv Much the reverse of the fiissiness" and ostentation sometime* displayed bv modern lee Hirers, entered upon his subject. He advened to 'be early history of English song. and tra -ed it down, step by step, to our present daT Of the vnmpositions of the Drnhls, who were poets as Well as no trar-es have come down to us; and of the Hards, Who succeeded the Druids, onlv fragments were to I*. found, such as those hv Jain?* M< Pher*on and woven to jjetfevr ta the songs of Ossian. I.ater came the f,>r kin* Arthur, King Cole. and Kin? ?Merita,embalmed in Saxon song. and which had <a* strong a hold on the popular mind of that time Ms the Indian tales of Cooper and other writers upon Knglish or \inericau readers now Then succeeded the minstrels of the Norman era. who were high in public regard, and played an im portant part in the history of the times. They were not only son;; writers and musicians, but they were also the newspaper editors and report ers of the day. putting into verse the last horrible uiurder and love tragedy; and their advent cre ated as much excitement as does now the appear ance, in a provincial town, of Jenny Llnd or the latest ballet company from London or Paris. Specinns of the minstrelsy of the times were mentioned: as ??Chevy Chase" ?? Robin Hood " ' Fair Rosamond," and the '-Babe* in tiie Wood "' The last-named ballad has made robin redbreast a sacred bird in F.nglaiul The Knglish ??oy Will rob the nest of any other bird that sings, <>r cannot sing; but to disturb the robin, the iiold with the warlet l>os??m, is considered u:i lucky, as well as cruel. If robins only kn<"w how manjr of their lives have Wen spared through an 44 old song." thev would hover o'er the graves of poets and strew thein with leaves, as thev did the unburied children, in grateful remembrance of the power and tenderness of poetry. The minstrels lost favor upon the invention of printing; they teased to be favorites of the weal thy, and found their patrons only among the p??or. At last, an net of Parliament branded th?m as strollers and vagabonds?a term which, with a little extension, might apply to Piccilotnini, or Jenny Liml. or?most horrible to think of?even to a 1-cturei' Chamber's Canterbury Tales attord frequent allusions showing the love of the Kng ush people in his time for songs. Of the songs printed on large sh-ets of paper and termed " broadsides," very few have reached us of a date anterior to the reign of Henry VII. Some "pecimens of these ?' broadsides'' are pieser.ved in the British Museum. A similar class of songs is now sold in Kngland at the tate of a penny";a yard Berry VIII, with all his love-making and wife-killi.i^, found time to write two orlhree songs, specimens from which were given by the lecturet. One of these was entitled "The Sweet lng,'" or what w-ould now be 4? The Sweetheart.'' and another was called ?? The Loyal I.over." Among the song-writers of this period were Sir Thomas Wyatt and the Karl of Surrey, botn of whom suflcredon the block,for treason, at a t m; when it was not very well defined what treason was, or was not. Then came the golden Eliza bethian era, with Spencer. Drayton, and others. Among the celebrated songs of this time, and many of which are preserved in Percy's Reliques, is the famous poaching song ?? It's my delight, of a shiny night." and the ?? Manner's Glee," pro bably the oldest sea song in British literature. At this time flourished .Martin Parker,who wrote the song, - Ye "entleinen of England," which was the model or Camph ll's ?? Mariners of Eng land." The song-writers of the age of ,<haks peare were many and excellent. Sosne of them wrote almost as well as Miakspeare? none better. There were Beanir.ont and Fletcher, Ben John son, Thomas Heywood, Chrisfoph-r Marlow. George Wither, Carew, Donne, Raleigh, Wotton! and George Herbert. Many of Ben Jonxon'g songs were of exquisite grace, such as " Drink to ine only with thine eyes ." But Shakspe.tre was the prince of the song-writers of his day. It might be said that had he not be-n the greatest of dramatists he would have ranked as the great est of epic poets, the greatest of historians, the "rea'est of lawyers, or the greatest in whatever he directed his mind. "Under the greenwood tree. and ? Ta.e, oh take those lips away," were mentioned as among his inimitable gems of song. ? Later than Shakspeare came Milton, Cowley. AN aJler, Diyden and a host of lesser stars Mil ton was a musician, and understood all the tl::p shades and niceties required in poetry meant to be sung. He is too great and mighty for the pop ular appre. iation in his epics. He'sits blind on the cold, showy heights of Parnassus, elevated above our sympathies; but Iwhen he sin?'s his " Comus," *4 Penseroso," and ?? Lycidas," we take him to our hearts. In his songs were com bined poetry and music, Italian sweetness and English force Cowley, though a great poet, did not excel in song writing He.could not distin guish one note of music from another His Bac chanalian paraphrase of Anacreon, ?? The thirsty earth drinks :i?? the rain." was still sung by boon companions. Dry den's songs were t?etter adapted to nmsic than Cowley's, but were less fl; f?r de cent society Dryden lie longed to a bad, licen tious age. that of the Restoration, when the only virtue recognised at all w.is that of personal cour age- To the period of vice succeeded that of false pretence, when every lover w.is a ?hepherd under a R-innn or Grecian nam-?a ?* Strephou" or an 11 Adonis;" and when every lady was a shepherdess w ith a crook, was dressed like an opera dancer, and was called ?? Chloe'* or ?? So phonsiSa " Love was "Cupid." Nobody talk- d of marriage, but of the ?? Altar of Hymen." The north wind was ?' Boreas," the moo.i ??Cynthia" or ?? I.una," the sun '? Pho-bus." The object of affection was called " Veuatf" if kind, or ? Di ana"' if coy Carey, a song-writer of this time, was an excellent musician, but an inferior poet. It was not known with certainty who wrot? the noble -?ong of - God save the King." but it was believed to l?e Carey. It was ditfi'-ult even with modern songs to al ways fix the authorship Moore was accused humorously by ?' Father Prout" of having stolen his Irish solids, and the world took the accusa tion in sober earnest. Campbell had been charged with stealing from a hed^e-vhoolmaster, and Wolfe had b -en declared to be an unblushing plagiarist. The song of ?? Cheer, boys, cheer." the author of which the speaker happened to know rather intimately, (laughter,) had been at tributed to a lady who happened to write a paro dy upon it. and the authorship was yet under discussion in ??Notes and (Queries" and the ?? Edinburgh Review." Various song wi iters from the time of Charles II were spok-n of: Pojw. Collins, Gay, Thos D'l rfey, Davy Garrick, who wrote >? Hearts of Oak," James Thompson, author of ?? Rule Brit tannia," Thomas Percy, whose song '? Oh, Nan ny, wilt thou go with me *" was so highly es teemed by Robert Bums, Charles Dibdin, that English song writer who was equally excellent as a musician and po-t His sonjj of ?' Tom Bow lin." whb-h the F.dinburg Review had styled vulvar, was recited by the Poet with exquisite pathos Dibdin left a son. Thomas Dibdiu, who w.ote some ?ea-songs scarcely less popular than the father's. The lecture was concluded by the recitation of three warinlv applau l?-d original songs : the first nj?on the ?? Old. old subject of Love." the second ralud " NolK>dy," and the third the'? Cheerful Heart." \ Dt?rr*ATE Lltr ?Saturday night,ayoun^ man. named McCienahan, from Baltimore, was arrested by watchmen Donaldson and Donnelly, and taken to the Guardhouse for jumping through a window of Weavers confectionery store, smashing a paae valued at ?5. He said that he had l?een attacked by three men, and oneof them stru' k him on the mouth with iron knnekles, cutting his upper lip entirely* through, arid start ing all his up|>er teeth. Air. Weaver thought the Mound was caused by tte broken glass; but after hearing the statement of McClenaban, the Justice, Ouiu, disriiisstd him to go to a surgeon t<? have the wounds dressed, deeming it unfair that he should be beaten and imprisoned, when Lis assailants could not l?e found.

' Stapdisg Cask ?Between I and ?? o'clock Sun day morning six journeymen bakers, who are engaged in the l>akery of J. F Havenner, when returning home were attacked on Pennsylvania avenue l^tween Four-and-a-half and Sixth streets, by a party consisting of three men, who inquired their nativity, and after a short parley apparently in a playful manner, they commenced beating the bakers, stabbing one 'through the arm and in the side; his name Is John Fox An other, Alexander Nelson, was stabl?ed twice in the back, Jbelow th? right and left shoulder blades, inflicting two very serious and. it was feared, fatal wounds. Another, named Geor?e Loiightner, was struck in the face and knocked down. I he remainder escaped without serious injury. The attack was not expected by them, and they were totally unprepared. Fox and Nel son weie conveyed to the lntlrniary. where their wounds were dressed, and proper attention paid them. \\ e learned this morning that they were doing as well as couid be expected.
