Symphony Concbrts. Though our
public baa, of late years, been fevored with
various series of delightful chamber con
certs in which the sonatas, trioß-aHdquar
tettes of the older masters have been illus
trated with a degree of virtuosity which
would justify our congratulating ourselves
upon the si ill of our leading artists, there
has been no sustained attempt to produce
the symphonies and other important
orchestral works in their completeness.
There have, it is true, been'occasional con
certs in which a symphony has been per
formed, but in the absence of regular or
ganizations, having for their chief object the
production of just suchworks, we have had
hut few opportunities of hearing perfor
mances with the like of which New York
and Boston are frequently favored.
The Chamber concerts, to which we have
already referred, have done their share in
educating our public in this regard. Com
positions which, a few years ago, would
have drawn but thin audiences, now attract
attentive crowds. The artist is enoouraged
by the fact that his constituency hss so in
creased that its festhetic wants are reflected
by a more*extended circle; and being thus
encouraged, he feds Impelled to greater
efforts than before. An instance in point
has lately come under our notice, in the
case of a musical undertaking which we are
about to introduce to our readers. >
Messrs, Jarvis'add ’Schmitz,: impressed
with the belief that a series of symphony
concerts would 'find favor with Philadel-
Phians, boldly made their .preparations for
a seasonof three performances, to be given
during the winter) ‘ What at first, to their
lees enthusiastic friends, seemed a mere
venture, has.met with most gratifying sup
port. Although they have not, as yet, ad
vertised these concerts, their’ subscription
lists arealready so well filled as to guaran
tee the success of their laudable under
taking. .
Italian Opera.— The opera of L'Etoile
du Lord was repeated last evening'at the
Academy, to a delighted audience. Mins
Kellogg and Miss Hauck each sang delight
fully, and each had a full share of Aural of
ferings. Antonucci was fine as “Peters,”
and Bellini droller than ever as “Gritzenko.’’
Baragli made the most of the role of “Dani
lowitz,” and the exquisite but difficult ro
mance in the last act, “Disperso il crin,”
was sung with such tenderness of maimer,
such purity of voice, and such consummate
skill, that it-would have been encored, but
for the -lateness of the hour. The whole
performance was very delightful.
This evening The Huguenots will be pro

:Tlie Case of Lynch
Full Report of His .Speech and the
Death Sentence.
■: We have published an. account ©f the con
viction and death sentence of Lynch, the
Fenian, hut add” the following account of
fhe final.scene ofthe trial. - It is from the
Toronto Globe, of the 26th:
' A.t, twenty-five minutes to six the jury
returned into Court; and the roll'having
been called by the Clerk, he inquired—Gen
tlemen of the Jury,have you agreed on your
verdict ?
■ The Foremen—The Jury have come to
.the conclusion that the prisoner is Guilty.
! The clerk bayingrecorded the verdict;
: The Solicitor General arose’ and said—l
move, my lord,for the judgment of the Court
on thepnsoner,
His Lord ship—Robert B. lynch,have you
anything to say why the sentence of the
Court should not be pronounced on you for
this felony ? .
Prisoner's Address.
The prisoner, with afirm voice, replied as
follows: Well, my lord, you must be aware
:—you must have noticed—the inconvenience
and disadvantage my counsel labored under
in not being able to bring forward' the evi
denceof those who oould have proved clearly
that I had no connection with the Fenian
raids. I state now that I had neither hand,
act nor partin the late invasion, and that I
came to hot in .the capacity in which
ithaßfaeen represented! came, but simply the
correspondent of a public journal.- Andin so
doing I was not aware that I violated either
the laws of Canada cr those of my adopted
country. I was not aware that there could
i he any objection to a reporter following the
■ army and chronicling the incidents and
progress ofthe invasion. Had I known this;
. I would have been careful tohave remained
on the other side. With regard to the man
ner in which the Crown has conducted the
. prosecution in my case, I think and most
, confess that I have been very fairly dealt
with. Both the Crown Solicitor and Mr.
! Cameron hate carried oh the prosecution in
the most fair, and impartial maimer, and I
feel that it is but right in me to make the
statement. - -
His Lord ah ip—The object in asking you
to address the Court was to give you an op
portunity of urging any legal objections, if
‘you had them. - It is too late how to discuss
jthe facts of the case.
i Prisoner—Well, my lord, you must be
aware with regard to legal objections, that
lam not cognizant enough of law to make
;any. I only know that I am innooent of
;the crime charged against me, and of which
I have been found guilty. And I here
pledge myself before that God in whose pre
sence I must, appear some day, that lam
wholly innocent of the crimes for which I
was brought here; and that I never saw
Stevens till I was arrested and brought Into
his very house on the 2d of June. On that
occasion I saw him, when placed in' his
house, fora short time previous to being
brought up to the Court House.
The Crier then made the usual proclama
ion, prior to passing sentence of death.
Sentence of Death.
; His Lordship, addressing the prisoner,
said—l am very sorry todind a man of yonr
age and experience stand where you do to
day. You are a man who most have seen a
good deal of the world—a man not without
education and intelligence. The evidence
brought before me Court is perfectly clear
and conclusive mat you were not in Canada
as a reporter on the occasions charged in
the indictment; hut that yon were armed
and in some kind of command. What mat
was does not distinctly appear. But even
though you were only as a reporter, you
onght to have known that no war
had been proclaimed; mat those men
with /whom you were seen were
making an atrocious,' almost unparal
leled, inroad on a peaceful country, and
that under me circumstances you were
there to report me ravages of these men to
fathers interested, in order they they might
gloat and glory over the slain. While a
siDgle word would have influenced the case
to your prejudice, I carefully abstained
from saying anything against you. But
now it does not lie on me to extenuate your
fault, or affect not to see it in the darkest
light. You professed,with others, toredress
the grievances Of centuries—to right the
Wrongs of an oppressed people—and to re
move the iron heel which you say the
Saxon put on me Celt .centuries ago,.and
yet yon began by inflicting on us the very
injuries of which you complained. Why
should yonr iron tread be forced on us?
Why shonld our homes be desolated and
onr young men be slain by you? Will any
man of sense answer mis plain question?
Was it less man murder for yon to come
here in. the dead of night to ravage onr coon
toy and slay onr people? And all this was
clone under oolor of relieving Ireland’/Could
any right you may have authorize yon to
faommitsnch a wrong as you then perpe
trated? This is putting yonr case in a very
plain and dear light. You stand here
surrounded by me friends and relatives
of me men you slew on- that occasion.
If you were : there. : as a reporter
faven you were not guiltless. Your object
waß to encqurage , others to, come lf these
inen had been successful; or to keep mem
hway if the reverse had happened. Looking
at your conduct in that light, yon cannot be
surprised that me law should be enforced
and mat you should suffer the. dread pe
nalty of that law—as I very much fear you
will—for how could we punish me young,
reokless and unthinking young men to be
brought here for trial—-who followed such
as you, and placed confidence in you,
if you were to be allowed to esoape?
Could you see any, justice in -pun
ishing mem in' such a case? You oom
plain unjustly <- mat - those - who - were
in command on that occasion were not al
lowed to come her e to give testimony in your
behalf. Bnt I cannot pervert me law and the
Crown cannot override it. ,If me Crown had
any such pledge of safe conduct as had
been spoken it could not be earried out.
You have had aR the justice you could ijos-.
EveryonetSfaabstelnsd from
Urging too hardly against yon mat whloh
might have been urged.. ButL would fail in
my duty now. if-I did not pnt your crime in
its true light when about to sentenoeyou to
appear before that Judge who sees things
jnst as they are; It is a very painful thing,
me most painful whlch a man can be oalled
onto do, to doom a fellow-man to death.

• For some time past the city has not been ex
cited overs heavy robbery.and the detect! ves
have been compelled to employ their time
with small cases. Yesterday, however, the
monotony was broken by the announce
ment that C. O. Parks, broker at 34 New
street, had been robbed of 840,000 in gold
Yesterday afternoon, at a quarter before
two o’clock, Mr. Parks sent George Calvert,
the alleged absoonder, to Messrs. Charles
Unger & Co., bankers, of 48 Exchange
place, with an order for $40,000 in gold cer
tificates. As the distance was not a very
great one from Mr. Parks’s office, after wait
ing for the space of about fifteen minutes,
Calvert not returning, a young man was des
patched to ascertain the cause or the delay.
On .reaching Messrs. Unger <fc Co.’s place
the messenger was informed that Calvert
had been there and drawn the gold certifi
cates, each of them bearing the denomina
tion of $5,000. On returning with this
answer to Mr. Parks, that gentleman,
doubtless supposing that Calvert had gone
off elsewhere, but would soon return, de
layed making any further inquiry for about
half an hour. At the expiration of that time
he became alarmed and suspicious that
Calvert had yielded to temptation. A
clerk was therefore sent to the Sub-
Treasury, where he was informed
that two. of the certificates, amounting to
$lO,OOO in gold,had been cashed a short time
previous. Upon comparing the numbers
furnished to Messrs. Charles Unger & Co.,
it was discovered that certificates Nos.
21,997 and 21,105, of letter A, were the ones
that had been cashed; Furtherinformation
was obtained that Calvert had been seen to
enter the Sub-Treasury building by the
Wall street entrance and to leave it through
the door fronting on Pine street. Beyond
this nothing could be learned of his where
abouts, and although unwilling to believe
that Calvert had acted dishonestly, Mr.
Parks was compelled to act upon the over
whelming evidence of guilt that had been
placed before him.
The following description of Calvert has
been obtained at the office of Mr. Parks: He
is between twenty-five and twenty-eight
years of age, small piercing eyes, large front
teeth and a Celtic looking face. His beard
and hair are of a light brown color; the
heard grows over a great portion of his face
and throat; speaks with a Blight Irish accent.
At one o'clock yesterday afternoon he wore
a coat of Scottish cloth of light brown, and
pants and vest.of a lighter color. He for
merly resided at 86 Clinton Place, and has
a brother residing at Springfield, Mass.
His occupation, as stated by Mr. Parks,was
thatof a “gold runner” for delivering gold
gold-cheoKß. In this capacity he had been
employed by Mr. Parks, at various times,
since last year. Until yesterday he had
always been regarded as honest and trust
> The following are the numbers of the cer
tificates drawn from Messrs. Unger & Co.;
payment of them has been stopped at the
Sub-Treasury, except those already cashed;
Nos. 22.000, 21,459 C, 21,706 D, 20,654 B,
21,656 D, 21,424 D. 21.997;A, 21,105 A.
- Information of the supposed robbery was
promptly sent to Police Headquarters, and
Inspector Carpenter immediately detailed
several deteotlves to hunt up Calvert. Tele
grams describing the alleged theif and
stating the robbefy committed have also
been sent to all parts of the country. It is,
however, the opinion of many that Calvert
Ijasnot left the'city but is secreted some
where iu New York. .Handbills notifying
the.public thatpayment of the - gold certifi
cates had been stopped and giving their
numberawere extensively circulated yes
me. The law requires I should not shrink
fiom it, if I could I would. Aathe law now
, stands,you might be sentenced to immediate
execution. Thelaw puts that discretion in
my hands. Bnt inasmuchas that Jaw isan
;ex post facto one, as to you, Fshall certainly
; not exercise any discretion I may have to
,shorten your existence one hour;' ‘More
■over, ypn hav® a right to bring into Court
the .whole case—to appeal from the deci
sion of a Court adverse to you—if there
.was anything, wrong in the' evidence
and the proceedings; and God forbid that
should deprive you of that opportunity -to
appeal. You shall be treated just as the
slaw was when you oommifted the offence;
•?° '“at. iif the evidence does- riot,
. in the opinion Of my learned brethren, sus
•tam the conviction, time and 'opportunity
> will he given you to move against it, Tf I
■have received evidence such as I ought not,
or put a wrong construction on any part of
lit, it will be 'open for you to make a com
plainttothateflfect; and the period of your
.execution will be delayed to the end of next
1 term, just as if that law had not hew passed
so as to afford yon an opportunity of appeal.
It uow only remaißS for riie to pronounce
the dread senfenceof the law. Yours is an
.offence punishable with death. I can exer
iose no discretion. The sentence of the.
Court on yon, therefore, is thaty on be taken 1 :
to the place snom whence you came, to be r
there detained till Thursday, the 13th day of
December next, and to be taken from thence
on that day to the place of execution, and
■there hungfcy the neck until you are dead,
and may God have mercy on your.souU
; During the latter part of his Jiordahip’s
address, be was deeply affected, and could
scarcely proceed with the sentence. The
vast audience in the Court were; hushed as
still sb death itself. But, to all outward ap
pearance, {he prisoner remained unmoved.
Not that his indifference appeared stoical;
but- he looked as if he had nerved himself to
encounter the trying scene. -
: _ An Iskllßt of Lynch's Career.
The prisoner, Robert B. Lvncb, was born
in Galway, we understand, to 1818, He was
at one time Chief derk in the department of
the Board of Charitable Donations and
Bequests, Dublin Castle, and retained
that post from 1537 to 1842, when
he is said to have emigrated to the
United States, He then engaged ‘in
business in ; St Louis for a time, but left
there to 1849, and traveled to many of the
leading cities in the South American Repub
lics and West Indies. He subsequently
joined the American army, and was Quar
termaster, with the rank of Major, in the
24th Wisconsin volunteers. During the lat
ter part of the.war he was chief Clerk, with
the rank of Major, in'the Discharge Depart
ment of LhtriawUe. Subsequently, he says,
he came to Canada, under the direction of
Adjutant General McDermott, of the F. 8.,
of Louisville, Ky., to report the Fenian
campaign in Canada. This ietbe prisoner’s
account of himself ; but wehave heard other
■versions Of his Career which assigned him a
residence of sorile years in Western Canada.

exoßllent, and a Philadelphian could inarn
there that not all the large apples iri the conn
fry were grown in New York State,tf any
thing like an average oould be struck of the
general crop from the particular specimens
exhibited. One plate of round, light-golden
colored fruit labelled “Squinphes" (fact)
promised a novelty which was only done
away by seeing a neighboring specimen of
the same kind 'marked ••Quinces.” The
garden vegetables Buffered from their several
days exposure, and on the last day showed
the marks of the “withering hand of Tima”
rather too plainly. The wonderful patch
work bed quilts that appear at these conntry
fairs were the attractive objects.for the
elderly ladies and compared favorably with
the kindred works of art of the photogra
pher, the portraits of the Kings and Qneena
ofrags arid patches. There were oows and
other cattle, patent medicine venders with
broad brimmed hats to attract by their
novelty, or rather antiquity; to which hats
the medicine venders added banjos and
sang songs to draw attention to their patent
blisters and potions. The “aide-ehowa” of
infent Barnums, the coffee-mill opera of
hand organs,and finally the horses and race
track made a few of the objects of attraction
of this county feir.: Now and then - some
thing solid attracted one by its very rarity,
and a collection of Wallace’s patented Key
stone ploughs had always a large number of
admiring farmers, around them. As yon
looked at the ingenuity in the invention of
their the capOal construction tor
turning up the soil, it was not hard to un
derstand why they attracted so much atten
tion. The plough is the life of the fermer,
and the golden harvests of our fertile valleys
show how well they are driven throrigh the
rich soil. It is from the. rugged mountains
guarding these favored places chat the hearty
oak and the solid iron are cut and moulded
till the plough is ready to tgra up to life the
sleeping sods of the valley. Is it any won
der that the man who makes an improve
ment in the plough deservedly wins the ad
miration of every agriculturist and merits
the hard-earned reward for his ingenuity?
The Patent Office can answer.
There is some complaint of the quality
and yield of wheat, but the Indian corn crop
is capital; potatoes were rarely better; ap
ples by no means plenty, and traveling
agents have snapped up every barrel of ci
der they could buy, paying about five dol
lars a barrel for it. How many barrels of
city cider by the aid of water and sugar can
be made from one barrel of real country ci
der is a mystery—but a profitable one.
The Tate Storm.
A despatch from East Haverstraw, N. Y..
dated yesterday, Bays:
A terrific storm of rain and wind com
menced here about 10 o’clock, causing as
severe a freshet in this vicinity as has been
i xperienced in these parts for years. From
this point to a distance of naif a mile north,
the entire track of the Hudson River Rail
railroad has been completely submerged,
water covering both ud and down tracks to
the depth of several inches. Of course there
had to Le an outlet somewhere. About one
mile north of here it washed away the
ground work of the track and ran off down
the embankment The above state of affairs
came very near causing a terrible disaster;
as it was, quite an accident occurred.’ The
following are the particulars: As the Albany
express train down, which left Peekskill
at 9 o’clock and 9 minutes this morning,
reached the spot where the water had
broke through, the engineer, not observ
ing anything nnusnal in the state of the
track, did not slow his engine, hut let her
travel along at her usual rate of speed
(about thirty-five'miles the hour). As soon
as the ears ran on to that part of the track
which had been undermined by the water,
the rails gave way, and the entire train,
with the exception of the engine Minnesota,
ran off. A large number of passengers were
onboard, and a panic ensued immediately.
Every car, however, remained upright, but
tumbled about terribly. One of the brakes
men and a. newsboy was slightly injured.
Just before the train ran off; perhaps not'a
moment previous to the accident; the New
York Express up passed the spot on the np
track where the accident occurred, in safe
ty. In fact, the engineer of that train
looked back and observed the Albany
train run offi The engineer of the down
train, Mr. Thomas Hodge, and the fireman,
Mr. Calvin Briggs, both assert;that if they
had not been running at foil speed, the en
tire train would have tumbled down the
embankment; and had it occurred one mo
ment . sooner than it did, a terrible disaster
would have occurred, for in that case both
of the express trains, heavily laden with
human freight, would have been Jumbled
into one indistinguishable iriass. The New
York passengers in the train that met with
the accident were taken to New York in
the Sing Bing train. The noon train up was
delayed -at the break over one hour, bat
now eveiything is running regular again.
I hear that the storm was very severe
ftirther rip the river, but have heard of no
- Peekskix.li, N. Y., Oct, SO.—The storm
here last,night and this morning was very
severe. The lower part of the. town near
the depot was inundated, families being
driven out of the lower part of their houses.
The Iron Works, were compelled to suspend
business as the water, covered the doors of
their workshops.' The wind blew a perfect'
hurricane. At this time of writing, 4 P.M.,
it is clearing up and a strong northwest
wind prevails. All the docks were inun
dated and . considerable lumber and wood
drifted away. :
Portland, Me., Oct. 30.—A severe south
west gale has prevailed here all day, -Sevsal
walls id the burned district,- which were be

Geary’s Maj ority,
General Sneeman’s Military and Hpl»
More Anon.
General Sherman had another interview
with the President to- day, after the session
of the Cabinet, at which he accepted the
military diplomatic mission to M&rico,
which I stated yesterday had been tendered '
to him. He will, therefore, leave forOirio
to morrow, and, after arranging some pri
vate affairs, he will leave for Mexico proba
bly within ten days, accompanied by Col.
Campbell, Minister to that Republic.
The Administration is gratified at
the prompt action of General Sher
man, and the hope is confidently enter—
tained that the presence of an officer
of such rank and distinction will be a. suffi
cient indication of the earnestness of '-
Government in the measures it is taking to
aid the restoration of the republic and'Uiat
it will render the actual: presence of United
States troops on Mexican soil unnecessary.
General Sherman’s precise mission is- both,
military and diplomatic. He goes to- sus
tain Minister Campbell in all the diplomatic
relations which may be re-estab
lished, and empowered also with foil
discretion ■as to the use of military
power in any emergency requiring it, -
The very important nature of this work
is thus apparent, and the President j&- anx
ious that it not only shall be in safe and
able hands, but that our representatives
shall reach the scene of action as soon a 3
possible. The name of Gen. Grant was at
first suggested as the proper person for this
position of military envoy, but as ha-cannot
well be spared from the pressing duties con
sequent upon the reorganization of the
army,Gen.Sherman was selected, he having
declined the tender of the War Department,
which was made by the-Presidents When
the change does occur in the lattsr Depart
ment, it is altogether probable that General
Grantwill assume its duties.— miaftington
