design F, brief desctiption of a
cren-l musical concert, given in this place, by
Messrs. GonHy, teachers of vocal and instru
mental On the eveuing of the 26ia
,. uU 5TeraI. singing schools, under the super--Intance'
of the above mined Instructors,
fa tha old log church, which was gorgeous-
iy decorated with wreaths of green hemlock
and pine, dotted here and there with artificial
flowers. Scholar's-and spectators made quite
an assemblage, and the old church was made to
graaa la Lcr very foundations with the oppres
"sion of the large concourse of people. The
Performance was extraordinary forihis neigh-
. Lorhood. The execution of the different piec
cs of vocal music was such as to reflect much
'credit on both teachers and pupils ; and while
he scholars rested their Toicc-u, they were en -
llvcued ty the singing of glees, duetts, na
tional airs", fc'c.'by the instructors, whose voi
ce? were accompanied with the "fiddle," sec
onded by the bass viol; 'making our very
hearts to dance, and "our heads, feet . and Lands
involuntarily to strike time to their harmoni
ous, merry tones. This seieuce deserves more
attention than it has hitherto received amongst
nt, and we feel assured, judging from ths ia
tres manifested by old and young, that hencc
forth it will receive that share of our eacour
agment which its attainment demands. The
' performance was continued to a late hour,
" none appearing to tire of this delightful em
ployment. ' A collection was raised for the
benefit of the bass violinist, who, occasionally
during the term, bad visited the various clas
im Sniu" ..mfirU' tvnrrt offered,

' able manner ia which the teachers con
. ducted the different schools, and also as to the
benefit of singing societies ia general, which
w as followed by a unauimous vole of thanks to
the- teachers. Then all dispersed and every
ilfing was soon quiet, except occasionally tho
jingle of bells, and of the Urge asieaiblge
nothing could be seen but rare glimpses of a
pair of licads, moving behind a snowbank.
' I am informed that seine of the b'Loys ap-

Vim after the close of the consort, in shaps f

furor created for music, that the notes of Yan

The editor of ths "Sunay South" must have
had a severe time of it recently. Hear hirn
in his paper of the 7th of February : "Tho ed

British Canadian RccisrxTS. Our coun

therefore they look upon tha retin a of regi

Another Cnrncn Property DirncrLTY.
A suit has been brought against the Roman
Catholic Bishop of Chicago, to recover under
a contract for building a church. The Bishop
denies tho validity of the debt, as it was made
in his Fpirituai capacity. The courts of Illi
nois will, probably, permit him to pay in his
spiritual capacity, if tho distinction is of con
sequence to him; but it is doubtful whether
the Bishop will thus be allowed, by a common
sense jury, to repudiate his obligations alto
gether on such Jesuitical grounds.

Preserviag Frfsh Frr.ita, &a. This invention for
which a patent has been obtained, commends it
self to th attention cf Housekeepers and others,
on account of its great simplicity, and tLo cfTotic-
al manner inwbi.-ii it accomplished a very desi- J
rablc and usoful object " j
i no cans ana jars arc constructed wita a ensa-
! ncl around tho moatb, cerr tLo top. iato which
tho cover fits loosely. This chinno! is filled with
a very ailiesiro cement, preparol for tbo purposa
and allowed to harden. In order to seal tha ves
sel hermetically, it is oiiij nec&try ti heat tht
covrr slightly, a:ri press it into place. It. may be
opened with as much easo as itisclosed, byslight
jy warming thc top. The ordinary tin cans, used
for thc same purpose for which this is intended",
cannot bo closed, as is well known w ithout the ail
of a tinnr; arc difficult to open, and aro generally
so much injured iu opening as to bo usoles3 for
future service.
Ry this simple contrivance, the process of hcr
tnetical sealing is placed conveelectly within tha
reach of every individual; and .fruit, vegetables
and butter (if properly prepared) msybe kept,
with their natural flavor unimpaired, tor an ia
definite length of time. For sa'le by
