OCTOlltift 2s, 186D. j\o. I. For the IJarnesville Gaze'te. Newnax, Ga., Sep. 28, ISC9. I\Jesus. Editorsi I s-.e in the la-t No. of the Gazette that my goo) brother Dodd is out in a gumless nrti cle after me. I fay gum less because there is nothing in s id eomtmtn cation w 7 oi tb ot ce. I think perhaps by the 1 1. me lie gets his blue col lards digested jhe wi 1 feel hitter and can gve the jivalers of the Gazette something be | sides dams and bed cords. I think j in 7 g n °d brother should not put the W'ord of direction in connection witli tlie name of bis pi ce ; those precau tions should be placed at the first end ol the tune, unle-s ti.e music or lan guage afterwards authorises some al teration. uh yes, I can pronounce I-r-a. I fuel under lasting obi giuiou to you fur that much ot your ki.owl edge on articulation. Weil, my friend, l know T have a shore hea 1. but I would ratlur have a sTTort one than a bdg or diseased head. I want you to be very careful when you begin to rub my ideas ; as my head is shoit there might be danger of friction or collision, or L might become confuddleJ. I will take a dose of “patience*’ on going to bed, as that is Dr. Dodd’s prescription. Patience is a good medicine for a Chris tian to take, but it’s very hard to swal low 7 and it’s are very mi!i in deed. If a person takes a double dose there s no danger of salvation. L was patience that kept good old Job to his integrity. I hope you will giwe us your notion in full upon the subjects of discords, flats, sharps at <] tautology. You want me to point rut the discords in the (tine ‘ Ira.” Well, in the fourth Measure from the first space of your Alio, w'hich runs the Measure nearly through on law Xo. 4, and sol on G 4th space of the Bass, which sol is 2\o. 5. Now it is contrary to the laws of Nature as well as those of Harmony foi Nos. 4 and 5 to produce harmonv : but here you have a whole measure en tirely discordant—that is, your Bass ami Alto; the other parts do very well. I want so know what sense there h in your Alto miming as low, if not lower, than your Bass. I see you have no use for rests in your music. You ask me to tell you whit should have been in the place cf the discords. 1 suppose \*;u think l can’t tell you. It seems to me that I dreamed, or read somewhere, that Dr. Dodd placed those discords in his music to bait “Reubin.’ times like acid foot* *VtAY^sr.-wJ.5040U bad in the place of your discords smiithing sweet anti accordant. For instance, No 5 in the Alto would have been sweet and agreeab o compared with the other numbers in said Meas ure. I had reference fo the Gunter that works by correct rule. I don’t like to see Rtdi. al terms or dams in a commuuicati at upon the subject ot Mu-ic. Lt ss keep poli ics out of our musical sheet and try to benefit our selves and t’m rising generation. I am alter moru light on the subject of mu se; I t us wiite with brotherly kind ness, and in a spirit of meekness, hon oring one another. I don’t mind a brother cubing sharp at me, so he does it in good humor. 1 asked you to give me the advantages < f 1 find or round no;es over four or seven shapes, btu you failed I hope when yon begin to rub up my ideas on discords, tautology, sharps and I don’t know what your so forth (&c.) has reference to, you will give the woild the advantage- of one sliaje over four or seven shapes. Now, Dr., do let ail irive the benefit of round over shape, i notes. You a.-k the Edi tor’s permission to propound a few questions, and you ask this very iin p ut nit question : “What i- a ‘Reubin’ in music I” \\ hy, Doctor, it “R ü biu” keeps taking you; 7 pa'cut ‘ Pa tience” lie may I ecomc one of the best physicians in the land, or it may be that the remedy will produce a nr.u --| sicl death. I will gve the an-wer as | you havo it —a poor old despis and pat ent note singer, 1 ’he qu stion is so in definite tin tno one can give a correct answer. ‘‘A Reubin’ in musick,” you say, ‘‘is a man that and sheiieves in clefs, flats and sliatps,” but I think, Dr., you are a lit:l*-* mistaken. “Reu biu” is nothing in music compared with Dr. Dodd. .Again, “Reubin ’is not in musie, hut music is in the itufficient creature. \Yln> evt r saw an instrument in mit'ic ? The mu-ic is always in the instrument. I don’t know what “Ran bin” the Ur. ha* allusion to whether it is Grandpap, (Jrandma, s n Torn or Ike.
