The concert last evening for the benefit of j Miss Annie Louise Cai'y was a most brilliant success, even exceeding the anticipations justi fied by the unprecedented rush foi seats and the enthusiasm fell for the distinguished bene ftciaire. At six o’clock the audience began to arrive, aud from that time until eight o’clock a constant stream of people ponred into the City Building, filling the corridors, stairways and Rossini Hall, which was thrown opeu as a waiting room for our suburban visitors, an awaiting the opening of the great hall, w 11c was speedily filled to its utmost capaci y. Every seat was taken, and the sixes and back were closely packed with standin„ am i ors‘ The appearance of Miss Cary npon the stage was "reeled with warm aud vigorous applause, only silenced by the first notes of the prelude to the cavatina from “L’ltaliana in Algieri.” The Kossinian repertoire—which makes so large demands upon the legitimate resources of au artist—is peculiarly adapted to display the rich, sweet aud powerful voice, rapid, brilliant aud flexible execution, and finished and animated style of Miss Cary, which have won her so high a reputation as a singer, both in Europe and in this country. After the cavatina, she wa3 recalled twice, hut merely bowed her acknowl edgments to the audience. The duet “I know a Maiden,” sung by Miss Cary aud Miss Ada Cary, was charming, eliciting an encore, in re ply to which the duet was repeated. The plaintive English song “O Willie boy, come home,” was sung liy Miss Cary with great pathos, sweetness and dramatic truth, and its power over the audience was shown by the hearty encore, to which she responded by sing ing “Coming through the Rye” with taste and arch expression. Her resonant tones were also heard to advantage in the trio by Concone. Miss Ada Cary, whose beautiful voice gives so rich promise of future fame, sang delight fully in the quartette by Mendelssohn, the duet with her sister, and the trio by Concone; and her rendition of Schuberts’s lovely and spirited song "lne Post-norn was very successtul and received hearty applause. Mrs.'Burnham’s pure, sweet an l telling voice was everywhere pleasing, hut particularly so in the duet “Mira la bianca luna;” in the solo Chi godore vuoll’ore di vita,”the more brilliant qualities of her voice aud style were conspicu ous. To a very cordial encore she replied by singing “Summer Moon,” by Mr. Marston. Mile. Carreno gave Meudelssohn's “Rondo Capriccioso" with power and effect, and was warmly encored, as also after her dramatic aud brilliant performance of Gottschalk’s arrange ment of themes from the Miserere of Trova tore, to which she replied by the ever favorite “Home sweet Home.” l>Ir. Stockbridge gave very great pleasure to the audience by his fine voice and refined man ly style of singing, in the duet by Rossini, the quartette, and especially in the graceful, teud er song “Break, Break, Break!” by Mr. G. W. Marston. Mr, Beckett was unable to appear, ou account of illness, and Mr. Coffin took his place, ac quitting himself very satisfactorily. Mr. Kotzschmar’s accompaniments wero ex quisitely brilliant aud sympathetic, as always, aud in their fullness and elaborateness demon strated his abundant capacity as a soloist. The audience was large, elegant, appreciative j and unquestionably the best of the season in I quality as well as size; everything combined to ! render the concert thoroughly enjoyable and 1 successful; and performers and auditors seem ed to enjoy the pleasaut occasion. The large number of people from other parts of the State than Portland gave pleasaut aud unequiv ocal evidence of the strong hold which Maine’s favorite singer has upon the admiration, re spect and friendship of her citizens. The con cert was a tribute worthy the givers aud re cipient, and we can bestow upon it no higher praise.

This church was tastefully deco rated for the great Feast of Easter. On the super-alter were three bouquets,beneath this the text in Old Euglish, “Christ is risen” in letters of evergreen. The Font was filled with lilies, wreathed with heliotrope. A white cross seven feet in height, wreathed with ivy and flowers of every hue stood beside the Font. The stall of the late beloved Rector, Rev. N. "W. Taylor Root, was wreathed with Ivy. A lovely little cross marked out with English Daisies.bolding an Easter I,ily filled with Heli trope, was placed at the end facing the congre gation. Above bis seat, a fine cross of varie gated flowers, and over all a wreath of Lilies and rose buds elegantly arranged. The whole was beautiful in simplicity, and touching as a token of love to the dear departed whose mem ory will be ever green in the hearts of his peo ple. Rev.

Clark Street Bridge.—The two wide and heavy abutments designed to support the arch• on the liue of Clark street, under which the Boston & Maine railroad is located, are now nearly finished, and the directors have decided to build the arch of solid granite, instead of brick as at first proposed. The contract has ac cordingly been given to Mr. 'William Moore of Biddeford, to furnish the stone from the quar ries at Biddeford and to do the work. Mr. Washington Libby will commence at once to build the centres or arch of wood, which will be a substantial work of itself, upon which the blocks will rest until the stone arch is finished. The bridge will be forty-eight feet span, and one hundred and seventy-five feet in length. It is intended that this stone arch shall not only support the avenue of Clark street, but also run in such a manner as will form the extension of York street diagonally from Brackett to West Commercial street, and thus supersede the use of the present Beach street.
