Ifot being a musical critio suffice it te say that the concert as a whole was more than good, that it was excellent, aud tüat organists and singera successfully vied with ach other in acceptably rendering the parta assigneri thera. MeBsrs. Lovejoy, Frieze, Morris, and Pease (who played the accompauiments for the solos of Mrs. Beebe) tested the capacity of the organ in volume, power, and tone, and the verdict was favorable to the instrument. Mrs. Beebe, of Jackson, won the same credit and applause that she has received elsewhere, while the home musicians maintained their well-known reputations. The programme was so arranged as not to be todious or wearisome, and the coucert furnished a most enjoyable treat.
