The Performance at Monticello Hall on Monday evening, for the benefit of the sick soldiers, was well patronized, the room, a small one it is true, being filled to its utmost capacity. The instrumental music was excellent. It spoke a language that all could understand. The intermingling of the round, fail tones of the flute, with the smooth strains of the violin, accompanied by the base viol and a few resonant horns, as was the case on this occasion, makes, indeed, a ‘"concord of sweet sounds"’ which is unsurpassable for harmony. One song was given in the English language. The performers, male and female, and the acting well; as to the words, we can't say anything.
