Thb Cablzstb amz> Thktb Recent Defeats. I1 does seem a* if at last Carlism was about played out in Spain. All the recent fights of which we hare any account have gone against them. At Vera, in Navarre, they sustained a Jignal defeat, fifty being killed and twenty taken prisoner!. While we write a band of Carlwta, near the town of Iqualada, some thirty-three miles northwest of Barcelona, is ?urrounded by republican troops, and its Surrender is confidently expected. The Car lists are not winning any move ; but it is diffi cult to say who else are winning in Spain 4The situation is still as near chaos as poesible. ' The Health or r^Tio^Ziu Holiness tope Pius DL is, according to a telegram from Borne to London, again prostrated in ?trength to a fatal degree of debility, it wag Wleged in Borne that the Pontiff bad fiied, but the assertion was not confirmed last night. The question, Is Pio Nono the last ot the Popes? remains for solution. Jij a despatch direct from Borne we are assured that the Holy Father reoeived fc Spanish deputation yesterday, made a treasury note of the receipt of a large money jrubsoription forwarded by "faithful sons" of the Church in that country, and in reply ex pressed a most paternal hope for the welfare of the peoples and princes of the world. The Fatioan is becoming a centre of press news Tke (State or t;?rU War In LouUl una?Tit* Danger aad Dlifraw to the Hrpablte. The deplorable state of affairs in Loukiana hu not yet oulminAted in the worst horrors of oivil war; bat all the elements are ready. We will be told that the United States is at peace ; but our special despatches report the rapid concentration of United States troops in New Orleans, the sending forward of de tachments of United States troops, and they tell ol a people whose attitude can be described as on the verge of insurrection. It is eight years since the last of the Southern armies surren dered to the Union forces. Eight years have passed in which the party that congratulates itself on saving the Union has had the power and the opportunity of healing the wounds caused by the war. What is the result? We find ourselves to-day on the borders of that supreme horror, a war of races. The massacre of the wretched, misguided negroes at Colfax, in Orant Parish, was a terrible commencement, for which the repub lican party, as well as the bloodthirsty whites who committed the atrocity, will be held responsible by history. Such is the disorgani zation of the State of Louisiana that the mas sacre has passed by without any steps being taken to inquire into the matter. The usurping government plaoed in position by the bayonets of the United States troops has found itself unable to preserve order without the further aid of these bayonets. Negroes may be massaored by whites or whites robbed and killed by negroes, but the Kellogg govern ment are unable to punish the offenders on the one side and will not do so on the other. The position of the Metropolitans or "polioe" of the Kellogg party at St Martinsville is almost ridiculous. They are supposed to represent the might of a great commonwealth ; but they are defied and beaten back when they attempt to move by a body of volunteers under the command of a man who holds a commission from MoEnery. Unable to send the United States troops openly to dragoon the people, the convenient plan of using them as a posse comitates is resorted to. So far the policy of the resisters has been very crafty. They have avoided all collisions with the United States troops, as that would place them at the mercy of the federal government. They have re fused to allow the assessment of taxes to sup port the Kellogg party, and have shown their readiness to fight the hirelings of that party whenever the United States forces were out of the way. The present condition of affairs is perleotly anomalous, and can scarcely continue for any length of time without end ing in a desperate conflict, in which it is in evitable that the "resisteTs" will go down as such. The word 4 'insurrection" is freely used in the highest army circles, and the temper is such that, if the slightest excuse is offered for calling insurrection a fact, a reign of blood will be speedily inaugurated. It is fortunate, so far, that no battle has oc curred between the contending forces that represent the State parties. The shameful side of the matter is that only the presence of United States soldiers can prevent a sangui nary combat The cure is as discreditable as the malady. The country where the disturbances are in progress is, as will be seen by our map, in the swampy district of the bayous near the south ern coast The position held by the McEnery commander, Colonel Le Blanc, is on an island accessible only by three slight wooden bridges, easily defended. The country people around are said to be bringing in supplies for his men, and the hostility of the whites in the section against the unfortunate blacks is illustrated in significant hints from New Iberia about ?'measures necessary to the protection of the white race being coolly and openly taken." The white man on the streets who threatens to raise the negroes appears in our despatches also, and it would seem that all the explosive materials of human passion are waiting only for chanoe ignition to spread havoc. In the chaos all the rights of the citizen are lost The first great crime in the nullification of the ballot has led to a hundred others. The military heel whioh trampled on this great bulwark of free govern ment crushed all other liberties at the same time. Where those who have been deprived of their share-in the government are in the numerical majority they, in turn, have disre garded the citizen rights of their opponents ; the party made insolent by success spares no effort where numbers are in its favor to make defeat galling to its opponents. Grime is heaped upon crime. Outrage is offset by massacre. Passive resistance is faced by un mistakable threat. It only remains for the rash op one side or the nuperserviceable on the other to precipitate civil war. We have from the commencement of these troubles sincerely hoped that the sound sense of the people of Louisiana would resist all temptation to invoke a conflict, which, apart from the bloodshed that must follow, will render the material condition of the State more deplorable than ever. Plundered as it has been by rascals, some of whom are now in the party of resistance, there is a depth of misery still greater which a state of civil war would produoe. The disgust which the usurp ing action of the federal government will pro duce throughout the nation can only be re moved by ill-advised acts on the part of those robbed of their rights. The Executive of the nation is hastening homeward from his Western trip, and it is worth while asking what he will think of his work when the numerous telegrams reach him which were chasing him and each other over the country yesterday. He may imagine that his power is such that ho can act with out being held responsible to the nation or to humanity. This, however, is not the case. History has its revenges on individuals as well as on nations. The party which gave him all his present power may see such consequences flowing from his first ac tion in Louisiana that it will fall away from him as from a leper. The danger which menaces true republican government in the South will not be forever justified by repub licans in the North and West on the selfish ground of party necessity. The disgrace which it brings upon the nation will be lelt even by radicals, who are not office holders, as the great stain upon their party. The constitution of the United States is invoked to justify what future action the federal authorities may adopt But the world will note the bitter irony of this, ns the origi nal infraction of that constitution is seen to be bloody, illuKtration of the fourth article. We rappoM that President Grant among other things looks forward, in imagination, to his name holding an honorable, If not a great plaoe in history. The story of Louisiana and his oonnection therewith will be one of the very blaok clouds upon whatever figure he may make in the tale of the future. The echoes of the rebellion can only be wakened now by the guns of federal soldiery, and if they are aroused the true patriotism of the nation will loath and desert the whilom leader of federal armies who, in his Louisiana usurpation, gave the first signal. It ia a saddening outlook. We cannot afford to have another bloody rebellion. That is a proposition easily understood; but the re sponsibility for making rebellion a probability will be fixed and justice done in the people's measured way. Oar L?(e Chief Justice as a Politician and Presidential Candidate, and Others In the List Withdrawn. In the oharaeter of a politician and Presi dential candidate our late Ohief Justice for many years filled a position so conspicuous and wielded an influenoe bo great and far extending in shaping the vicissitudes of our political parties and the destinies of the coun try that in this role he doubtless stands more prominently to-day than in any other before the minds of our readers of all parties. Look ing to the White House, his olaims, his aspira tions, his plans and movements, his hopes and disappointments will, from our city million naire's town residence to the miner's cabin in the Sierra Nevada, be a theme of discussion for days and years to come. His case will be added to the examples of Clay, Calhoun, Web ster, Seward, Cass, Douglas and others, as con firming the opinion that obscurity, and not distinction, is the passport to the Presidency, and that the prise for which our greatest statesmen have struggled all their lives in vain is sure to be won by some military chief tain or given to Bome second rate politician as a compromise in our juggling party conven tions. There is too much truth in this opinion; for it cannot be questioned that from Jackson to this day the important question of "avail ability" has superseded all other considera tions in the nominations of our Presidential candidates, and that accordingly the Presiden tial succession has been controlled by military glory or the chapter of accidents among the hucksters of our party conventions from Gen eral Jackson down to General Grant, except ing Van Buren, who was nominated and elected as the choice of "Old Hickory" for his successor. But when we come to consider the Presidential aspirations of our leading politicians of the last fifty years, the claims of Salmon P. Chase, on the basis of party services and personal merits and qualifica tions, we think, were superior to those of any other disappointed candidate, always except ing Henry Clay, "the noblest Roman of them all." Military glory carried Jackson, Harrison, Taylor and Grant into the White House. Jackson carried in Van Buren; Folk and Pierce were mere accidents, resulting each from a make-shift compromise in a juggling convention. Buchanan was forced upon another huckstering council of his party man agers as "Pennsylvania's favorite son." Fillmore, Tyler and Johnson, each elected as Vice President, became each, in the chap ter of accidents, with the death of his Presi dent, the successor to his unfinished term of office, while Lincoln himself was only a bold venture at Chicago in the way of a compro mise between the supporters of Seward, Chase, Cameron and others. This summing up covers the successful list of our Presi dential aspirants of the last forty-five years ; and yet Van Buren, Tyler, Folk, Fillmore, Pierce and Johnson belonged to the unsuc cessful list as candidates for another term. We leave Buchanan out of this category, for we believe that in the Spring of 18G0 he had seen enough and had felt enough of the rough riders for a Southern Confederacy to be anxious to get out of their way and safely back to the quiet shades of Wheatland. We have, then, only to consider in the period from Jackson down and in connection with the Whits House those Kings and prophets who waited long, But died wlthsut the sight. First among these stands the great Harry Clay, who, in 1844, came so near an election that an honest count all through would most probably have carricd him in. We need not here enlarge upon his clnims and qualifica tions nor upon his heavy disappointments first, in being defeated by Polk, and next in being superseded by Taylor on the ground of availability. Calhoun, though disappointed as a Presidential aspirant, abandoned tbe field in his quarrel with Jackson, and devoted him self to sowing the dragon's teeth of his Southern abstractions, which in due season produced a heavy crop of armed men. Webster had nothing to recommend him for the Presidency beyond his magnificent strength in Senatorial debates and Supreme Court arguments. He was a great statesman : but there is no great law on the national statute books credited to Webster. He was rathnr a follower than a leader in the Senate, and he shrank from those aggressive battles which were the hearts delight of Clay. It was in 1850 that Webster, in support of Clay's compromise measures on slavery, sacrificed Massachusetts for the broader field of tbe Union ; and it was in 1852, in being cut out by General Scott as the whig candidate for the Presidency, that Webster succumbed to his great disappointment, and he nevtr rallied from the blow. Seward, in 1856, was set aside by the Re pnblioan Convention, and Fremont, as "the pathfinder," on considerations of expediency, was nominated; and to this our illustrious "Sage of Auburn" cheerfully consented. In 1860, when superseded by Lincoln, he felt the ungrateful treatment of his party; but, instead of organizing a mutiny and breaking up his party camp like Van Buren, he Btooped to the blow, and during the first term of Lin coln generously proclaimed himself in favor of the President's re-election. It was pecu liarly a characteristic ot Seward to adapt him self to the situation and to make the most of it. Cass was too phlegmatic to suffer mnch from his Presidential disappointments, and too well provided for at his Lome iu Michigan to care much for the loss of honors or emolu ments at Washington. Douglas?impetuous, impatient and aggrcssivs-rushcd through his , cm (o tip Of <lwv?ratio party at Charleston, and shortened his life in his desperate and dearlj won battle against the Southern fire-eaters. His rise from looal ob scurity to a commanding national popularity was astonishing, and his fall was the fall of the democratic party. If he perished from the effort, still, liko Sampson, he had pulled the temple down upon the Philistines. Our late Chief Justice, as a politician and Presidential candidate, had laid his founda tions on gfteftt ideas, broad and strong. Gar rison and his ultra abolition party were im practicablcs, because they made their war against the constitution as "a league with death and a covenant with holL" Even Seward, right as ho was in the abstract, weak ened his causo as an anti-slavery leader in pro claiming "a higher law" than the constitution. It was Chase who, more than any other anti slavery leader, put the [tarty of "free soil" on the road to victory by confining their line of battle within the palo of the constitution. Hcnce the tremendous revolution, embracing universal liberty and equal rights, which has

followed. Hence wo may truly say that the Presidential claims of Chase upon his party and upon the country were surpassed only by the claims of Clay in (he whole list of our dis appointed political pilgrims for the White House. And in the sequel the memorable words of Clay on this subject will also as hap pily apply to Chase?"I would rather be right thau bo President." The United States at the Vienna Ex hibition?British Views. We lave denounced the scheming And job bery of the nonentities and shoddy people who were appointed by our sagacious government to represent the United States at the Vienna Exhibition, and we have foreshadowed what would be the result of the inadequate means and want of preparation and management to make anything like a fair representation of our products, skill, art and progress. Our correspondents at Vienna, too, have described the disgraceful incompleteness and mismanage ment of the United States department, the flag being down on the day of the grand cere monial of opening the Exhibition, signifying that our Commissioners and exhibitors were not ready. Not boing blind to the faults of our own people aud country we have censured unsparingly these evils and shortcomings. At the same time we 6aw that this country labored under pecu liar disadvantages, as the groat distance of Vienna from it, and consequent want of suffi cient interest in an exhibition so far off, as well as the cost and difficulty of removing objects to the great show, would prevent much being sent that might be exhibited at or nearer home. European nations had an advantage over us in this respect. They felt the impulse of the movement more than Americans, and had greater facilities for sending their objects of industry and art to Vienna. Then, there are some things that cannot be represented at the Exhibition. We could not well show the freedom, equality and happiness of forty mil lions of people any more than England could show her three or four millions of wretched paupers and the millions of disfranchised peo ple, who, in a political and social point of view, are no better than serfs. A good picture or a fine piece of sculpture from a European artist could be easily transported to Vienna and placed in full view ; but it is not so easy to present to the eye in the Exhibition the wonderful natural and developed wealth, the surprising progress, the education of the masses or the great and near future of the United States. We shall, doubtless, after all, show some good machinery, excellent labor saving inventions and fine productions that will compare favor ably with any in the world. In all that per tains to the well being, happiness or general progress of the people we shall not be behind any nation, and, we think, Bhall stand first But our British cousins, who are very affec tionate and not a little patronizing in their manner, when they want to settle Alabama difficulties, are ever ready to exaggerate our defects and to lampoon us. A full-blooded Englishman, evidently, writing to the London Daily News from Vienna, gives a "correct list" of the articles to be seen in the section of the Exhibition assigned to the United States. These are:?"Two cases of Golt's firearms, three binnacles, one stuffed eagle, two salt cellars, a dentist's chair and six bot tles of water taken from the Mississippi Biver." There, countrymen, is the figure we cut at Vienna, according to this amiable and friendly Briton. Let us hope the unpacking of cases that we hear so much of will show sometliing more. We confess to deserving sunie of this satire, for almost everything our government touches of this character is badly and meanly managed. And our shoddy Amer icans are too much in the habit of grabbing, and, when abroad, of making fools of them selves. The vanity over a stuffed eagle is a little pardonable in an American; but the Mis sissippi water we cannot excuse, because six bottles hardly represent the Father of Waters. Well, we must bear the Briton's satire and not seek redress by going to war with England. But how about our own Exhibition in 187(3? the Centenary Exhibition ? Will there be jobs and schemes, and plundering, insignificant Commissioners? Will there be nothing but stuffed eagles, salt cellara, binnacles, fire arms, dentists' choirs and bottles of the Mis sissippi or Susquehanna water? Let us mend our faults and do better, though the merit of doing so may not make John Bull more amia ble or less patronizing. Thi Cold and Genebax Bain Storm.? Bapidly succeeding each other, storm after storm is deluging some portions of the country. The northeasterly gale which has prevailed along this coast since yesterday seems to be but a small part of a cyclonic rain storm which, beginning in the southwest, has gradually spread itself northward to the lakes and eastward to the Atlantic. In its incipiency on Monday last floods of rain were deposited in the Lower Mississippi basin, and a large quantity of rain has been reported very generally in the Ohio and Missouri valleys and over the Western States. Wo may now regard the whole country lying between the Alleghanies and the gifat Plains as overswept by the broad band of the water-laden equatorial upper current, bearing the evaporation of the tropical seas to the Northern Continent to fertilize the soil and supply the subterranean fountains against the Hummer droughts. S< ldom has the Great West had a promise of being better provided and prepared in this way for itfi proUflo crops; and If #?e Jev^s qt the Mississippi can be secured the pros^T60^ is still brighter for the Southern and Quit States. Mr. O'Kelljr Removed (? !?????? 4* Cuba?The British 6??bO?t. Our speoial despatches from Havana bring as the information that Captain General Piel tain reoeived orders from Madrid to remove Mr. O'Kelly from his loathsome quarters at Manzanillo to some moro fitting place. Under the plea that oar special com missioner cannot be removed from the juris diction whereunder he was arrested, he has ordered Mr. O'Kelly's transfer to Santiago de Ouba. This transfer is still more objection able, as it plaoes him in the hands of the very man?General Morales 4a Iob Bios?who was so profuse in threats of shoot ing Mr. O' Kelly should he return to the Spanish lines after visiting the insurrection in pursuit of his perfectly legitimate mission. It is besides a still greater distance from Havana, and therefore more diffloult for his friends to com municate with him. The Oaptain General has pledged himself to decide the case as soon as the ridiculous sumario is concluded, and of whose preoious inoubation Mr. 0'Kelly has himself given us a graphic pen-pioture. The deliberate slowness of this sumario will be in ferred from the faot that Mr. 0*Kelly's papers, which had to be subjected to all this absurd scrutiny, consisted of a letter of oour tesy from Oaspedes to Mr. Bennett, three correspondent's notebooks and some private letters. Mr. O'Kelly has been in prison thirty-eight days, and the authorities have not yet ooncluded. The Captain General must be aware that in Havana Mr. O'Kelly would be safer than anywhere else, and that the whole island is under his jurisdiction. The British gunboat Plover, it now appears, was sent at Mr. O' Kelly's request, and its officers had no instructions to take any particular steps in his regard. We publish in another part of the ffmuT.n an interesting in terview with our imprisoned commissioner, which will show the conditions under whioh Spain civilizes in Cuba. Russian Meutaby Operations in Centbal Asia.?The virtual conquest of the territory of Khiva by the soldiers of the Czar of Russia has not, it appears, satisfied the Muscovite ambition for dominion in Central Asia. We are told that war is now probable between the forces of the Khan of Bokhara and the Russians. This occurrence, should it oome to pass, will be very annoying to the Russians for a season; but we can not hesitate to anticipate the result. Bokhara will share the same fate as Khiva. Khanate after khanate will be conquered. Then will come the trouble of a permanent enjoyment of the ter ritorial spoils. When the Russians are fully thawed out under the influence of o very agreeable and warm climate, they will com mence to enjoy themselves by prospecting and touring around. They will meet Mr. John Bull, who is already pretty well acclimatized, near the border of Afghanistan. Should the introduction be of a friendly character, well; but should the sportive Bruin attempt to kick up his heels and run round in defiance of geographical demarcation and the rights of property, there may come a growl, n hug and a mighty roar, after which the civilizations will learn if the aged Lion has become effete in his power for war. Blbajeley Sentenced. ?Bleakley, the mur derer of Maud Merrill, was last evening found guilty of murder in the seoond degree and sentenced to imprisonment for life. The in sanity plea failed to work in his case, as it was very evident that both Judge and jury took little stock in that line of defenoe. PERSONAL INTELLIGENCE. Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain) is at the St. Nicholas Hotel. Judge Levi Woodbury, or Boston, is staying at the New York Hotel. The King of Dahomey is having his coffin made In Birmingham, England. Neal Dew is trying to get up an excitement over teetotalism in England. Lieutenant English, of the British Navy, yestor day arrived at the Gllsey House. Governor D. P. Lewis, of Alabama, yesterday re turned to the Grand Central Hotel. Sir Joseph Hawley, having become convinced of the sordid business it fosters, has retired from the turf. The Prince of TTalcs will make his first stay at Oxford since 1863 during the Commemoration in June. Lord Eicho is a democratic peer. He is often f?en ?n London with such men as Odger and Brad la ugh. The claimant Tichborne wants to visit the United States, but there are hindrauces that he maj not overcome. General Q. A. Gilmore, of the Fnited states Armj, has temporary quarters at the Grand Cen tral Hotel. Mr. J. C. Parkinson, formerly of the London Daily Aeteg, is tfOrsiuj,- to develop the coal mines of Nova Scotia. J. M. schreiber, Professor of Stenography in th4 \ lenna University, has written the "Iliad" of Homer n the space of a nutshell. The work is on exhl bitlon at the Exhibition. The Rev. Mr. Mackie, of Elgin, England, was go much affected lately by the death of the Rev. Mr Wyiie that he announced that, out of respect to the memory of his much lamented friend and fel low laborer, the Rev. Dr. Wyiie, there will be no public worship in the parish church o/?Un Sd Sunday next l .Maaslno' wh0 recently died in Rome, claimed descent from q.

Trial Trip of the Steaauhlp Penuflp ?aula, of the Amerleaa Steamship Line?Fast Time and a Successful Trip. Philadelphia, Mays, 1873. Pennsylvania has achieved a decided success la naval architecture, the steamship Pennsylvania^ the pioneer of the line now being constructed by the Pennsylvania ltallroad to ply between Philadel phia and Liverpool, having returned to PhlladeW phla to-day from her trial trip to Sandy Hook. The Hbrald has already published an article OB the subject of this line, and it is peculiarly gratify ing that the hopes Indulged with regard to Phila delphia's first international line of steamers have not been groundless. The Pennsylvania left Philadelphia on Monday last and ran down the Delaware, closely followed by three fast harbor steamers and tugs, but, with one exception, she distanced all of them. We lelt the city about ten o'clock A. M. and reached the Capes, Cape May, in the evening?a dlstanoe ot ninety-three miles. We laid to at Cape Qenlopea until Tuesday morning, when we continued our trip. We ran due east thirty miles, and changed our course to the northeast by east for ten miles: Here our course was changed to northeast by east half south, running Blxty miles, which brought us abreast of Barnegat at four P. M. Hie vessel's course was then directed to the Sandy Hook lightship, which we reached at half-past seven P. M. The vessel was then changed to the southward. We ran ninety miles and reached the border of the Oulf Stream at three A. M. Wednesday. Then another turn and we re turned to Handy Hook, reaching there at a quarter past ten Wednesday morning. TRYING HRH HPEKD. It was then determined to try the Pennsylvania'* speed. Alter rounding the lightship she was headed dlreotly for Barnegat Light, forty miles dis tant. We left the lightship at twentv-flve minutes to twelve o'clock A. M., and were abreast of Barne gat at lour minutes to three P. M., making the run In three hours and twenty minutes. From Barnegat to Absecom, twenty-five and a half miles, the time was two hours and five minuteB. It was then de cided by Mr. Bartol, Chairman of the Building Com mittee, that the vessel should comply in every respect with the teems of her oontract, and to this end it was necessary to keep her out forty-eight hours. As soon as Cape Henlopen was sighted Mr. Bartol determined to run further out to sea. We proceeded some distance out and changed onr course for the Capes once more, bound homeward. Wo reached the Breakwater at forty minutes alter four o'clock this morning, and Philadelphia at forty minutes after ten o'clock, a distance or 10-2 miles in six hours. Coming up the Delaware we ran at a rate of over nineteen miles an hour at one time, which may be considered something extraor dinary uqder any circumstances, The englneaot the Pennsylvania, which are compound, were found to work satisfactorily In every respect: Indeed, u. is claimed by professionals that the saving In mel alone by these engines is something remarkable. Captain Sumner, the commander of the Pennsyl vania, and the directors of the company, express themselves well satisfied with the Initial trip of the pioneer orthelr new lino Of AaorlcAii steamships. ? and 1 am inclined to endorse their very hopeful prospects. Certainly no steamer ever had a more flattering trial trip In American waters. Messrs. Wiilliam Cramp A Sons, the builders, have two more steamers on the stocks?the second of the line, the Ohio, having been launched?and wilt commit them to the waters before two months shall have elapsed. All these steamers are first class iu every respect, 863 feet long and built la proportion, elegantly fitted up for first class travel and well Intended for all the business which they may be called upon to do. The American steamship Company of Philadel phia starts out under the most IRvorable auspices. The Pennsylvania will make her first trip to Liver pool on the 22d of May. THE LAST CONCERT OP TEE OHUBOH MU8IO A3BOOIATION. Steinway Hall was crowded last night, and pre sented an appearance reminding one or the Thomas festival. Evening dress was In the majority, both among the andienoe and npen the stage. ? largo chorus and orchestra, numbering probably two hundred, oocupied one end or the ball. The works performed were Haydn's symphony in 0 minor (No. o, "Salomon's Set"), Weber's mass in G, and "Die Walpurgisnacht," Mendelssohn. Three sound works, truly, all belonging to worthy composers, not blighted by the new fangied notions of the ma* nlacs who wish at tbe present day to turn har mony Into chaos. Tbe symphony was given with spirit and effect, If we except a certain coarseness in tbe strings, accustomed, as we have been, to tbe faultless tone of Thomas' violins. ? delightful episode occurred in the trio of the rnenuet, in which Mr. Fred. Bergner's matchless violoncello took a prominent part. The mans Is se familiar to the Catholic churches of this country that detailed comment on it would be unnecessary, Mendelssohn's work was a good test lor the cho rus, and they bravely withstood It. Although the volume of tone was small and the orchestra occa sionally obstreperous (when were ever Philhar monic instrumentalists otherwise ?), yet the bodv of singers gave unmistakable evidence of high tralniug in ensemble of expression and phrasing. This is largely due to the ejfadlSUi method pnd unremitting exertions or the cunductor ot the AsaS*" elation, Mr. C. E. Hersley. The solo quartet, con sisting of Mrs. Oalager, Miss Henne, Mr. Leggat and Mr. JternnjerU, were Immeasurably superior to the qMrtel that appeared during tbe restlval. The soprano and tenor solos were sung in a man ner that satisfied even the most exacting ear. The Church Music Association, although they sadly need a change of name, deserve great credit for the artistio success of their last concert. THE OENTENHIAL, ? - ...
