First Concert of the Albany
Albany, Ga., September 2d, 1873.
Editor* Tdeyraph and Jleacnjer :
Last night the Arion Musical Club of
this city gave its first concert, and as for
obvious reasons the Albany News cannot
take that notice of the concert which' it cer
tainly deserves, • its editor being Tice
President of the Club and parent of one
of the prominent singers, permit me to
give you some account of one ortho most
pleasing amateur performances it has
ever been my good fortune-to attend. I
know that of late it has.become so custo
mary in local olitors and correspondents
to bestow indiscriminate praise on these
entertainments—to characterize them as
splendid, superb, and all such extrava
gant epithets, that but little attention, ia
paid to descriptions of this sort; but no
one, who attended the concert, can deny
that merit of a very high'ordcr was de
veloped by some of the members of the
Where each performer conscientiously
endeavors to make an entertainment a
success, it may seem a little ungracious
to mention sorgo names to the exclusion
of others, but in order to be impartial, it
iq almost impossible to avoid doing so.
and I am sure that each member of the
Arion Club will eheerfnllv admit, that the
piano solo of Mrs. WooUolk, from Som-
nomlmla, the two songs "Waiting" and
“Judith” by Miss Styles, the “Fear of
Home” by Mrs. Hampton and an It liian
song from the "Barber of Seville'’ by
Mr. Cromwell, were the gems of the
evening. As for Mrs. Mallery. who is al
most tho life and soul of the Club, and to
whoso untiring efforts and labor* tho
present high state of efficiency of the
Club is mainly due, it is almost unneces
sary to speak, her musical talents being
too well known in this community, as well
oa to most of your reader*.
Thus far, I- have only spoken of the
Arions, but justice compels me to say
that much—perhaps the greater part of
the success of the concert—is due to Pro
fessor Van Houghton, of Eufaula, who
had been invited by the Club, and who
delighted the audience with some of the
finest executions on the piano and violin
ever heard in Albany.
In- conclusion, Messrs. Editors, allow
me to ask you to say something in 1h:half
of these musical associations. I think they
should be encouraged throughout the
length and breadth of the land, and there
is no power like the press to aid in ac
complishing this object.
About English Roots and Shoes
—Their “ Make,” Style and
The Londod correspondent of the Shoe
and Leather Reporter writes on tho sub
ject aa follows:
There is not much taste displayed in
getting up English shoes, for they are
generally a clumsy-looking article, but
the wearing qualities arc undoubted. The
ladies' walking shoes shall have a para
graph devoted to them later on, after I
liave interviewed Messrs. Hall A Son,
bootmakers to the Queen, on Regent
street, but I hardly think any American
lady would wear such boots as I
see in the shop windows here, even if
they belonged to the Queen herself. They
are not cut as high as we make them by
a couple of inches, and all fastened by
congress web or front Lice, and there is
not a button boot or side lace to be seen.
It must have wrung the heart of Edwin
B. Burt to look into the fashionable la
dles* shoe shops in London.
Men’s work is, however, built to wear,
and as it is well known our sex has lio
vanity, the style is a secondary object.
Prices of good West End work (not boot
makers to the “Royals”) for patron.*
from the mercantile and professional
ranks, are: For spring bottom gaiters,
French calf, XI 14s; and if of patent
leather, ill l(!s per pair; or, in gold, say
$8 50 to $9; Oxford shoes (ties), low-cut,
nrc Jtl 5s; or for patent leather, XI IQs,
about $6 25 to $G 50 gold—enameled is
what this last leather is called here; grain
leather shooting boots, long and laced
up, looking just like our “dirt-ex
cluders, are wortli -82 2s to £2 15s,
equal to $10 50 to $14 in gold;
hunting-boots, heavy stock, coming well
the leg, are worth X3 as to .£3 10s, or say
$16 or $17 50, gold. Then dress boots,
called Wellingtons, of fifteen-inch leg, are
made for (£1 18s; or. if patent leather,
£2 5s, which is $9 50 to $11 25 the pair.
Xo one wears the hist named article in
England. It will be noticed that their
prices for gaiters are higher than with us,
while Wellingtons or boots, of which none
are inode for tho colonies, are sometimes
less than ours. The truth is, the day
of cheap prices has guno by in England
for many articles, and everything under
the head of tho necessaries of life tends
to higher rates. Tho workmen get 7s 8s
for bottoming most kinds of shoes, but
fine work pays lls a pair.

The Colored Element and the
Under this head the Herald of Satur
day has tho following Washington special:
The question of color is about to annoy
the Patrons of Husbai^lry. The eolored
element heretofore has not been known
to the order. The constitution ignores
politics and religion, but sayj nothing
about color. Should the requisite num
ber of colored people apply for a charter
it would be issued; but whether the State
granges would permit a eolored master to
affilktte is a question of local jurisiliction
entirely. In the South, where the order
is flourishing, no application has been re
ceived for a charter for a grange composed
of colored people, but in Arkansas and
Missouri the impending crisis is at hand.
The order now numbers upwards of
G.000 granges, having increased over 800
daring the month of August. From this
time until December it is expected the

A California Cloud-Burst.
Those strange phenomena, the felici
tously-named cloud-bursts, that some
times devastate the California valleys,
are often terribly dramatic in their ap
pearance and effects. In Yogo canon
dwelt William McGQlig and his four
daughters. On the 12th of this.month a
small cloud appeared in the sky, rapidly
nearing the mountains, and increasing in
volume and density until the sky was ob
scured, and in the canon it seemed as
though night had come suddenly. Fear
ing danger, the family started to escape
to the high grounds, but the eldest per-
suded the others to return and endeavor
to save that dearly-prized article of a Cal-
fornia girl’s heart, tho piano—an instru
ment, if core lost, difficult to replace in
the interior. This delay was fatal, and
involved the untimely death of the entire
family We lead:
_ “Scarcely had they reached the door of
the cabin on their return when, with a
noise resembling the discharge of a thou
sand pieces of artillery, the darkness sud
denly parted in the centre, and simulta
neously an immense sheet of water de
scended upon the doomed house like a
shot from a gun. Oue prolonged wail, a
few short shrieks, and the silence r.f death
closed over the scene. When the water
had subsided Yogo canon ceased to exist.
Where the canon had been was now only
a part of the adjoining hills, the debrig
caused by the cloud-burst having filled it
up to a l*v«l with their tops.”

■Washington, D. C., September 2.—A
report prevails that tho Geneva award of
$15,500,000, has already been paid into
the Treasury, but, on inquiry, it has been
ascertained that preliminary arrange
ments only have been made for this pur
pose. It will be remembered that on
the Cth of June the Secretary of the
Treasury issued a call for tho redemption
of a certain series of 5-20 bonds—more
than covering the awards in anticipation
of its payment and that the British
Government arranged with the syndicate
to discharge this treaty obligation in pur
suance of the plan adopted. A large
amount of these bonds has already been
surrendered to the Treasury, and gold
certificates issued therefore to be made
available on and after the sixth of Sep

demption of the bonds. These gold cer
tificates, it is understood, are in the hands
of the British Consul, at New York, but

Tho Counterfeit Legal Tender.
Washington, September 2.—Tho fol
lowing is a description of the difference
between the gendino and counterfeit five
hundred dollar legal tender note, of the
issuo of 1869: The upright that holds
the balance of the stales, held in the
hand of tho female figure, shows a white
line in tho counterfeit over the lower part
of the palm of the hand to the second,
figure. In the genuine the upright is
quite black and lost in shadow. The
lower part of the right lapel of the coat
on the portrait of Adams, in the counter
feit, forms an angle. In the genuine, it is a
distinct carved line. Also Hie buttons in
the counterferfeit are irregular in shape,
while in the genuine they are decidedly
round and dark in color.*
Particular attention is called to the
buttons on tho left side on the coat on the
counterfeit. In the word “Washington,”
in the counterfeit note, the black shade
forming the first stroke of the letter “W”
forms an angle at the lxrttom. In the
genuine note it forms a curve. In the
ruled shading under the right hand stroke
of the letter “W”’ over the letter “A”
and “S’* there are five vailed lines on the
counterfeit. There are but three in the
genuine note. Under the letters “A** and
“S’* in the word “Washington,” in the
counterfeit, there are five ruled lines. In
the genuine there are but four; also, un
der the letter “H/ same word, thfcre are
four ruled lines in idie counterfeit. In
the genuine there are but three. At the
bottom of the letter “F” in tho denomi
nation title there are five ruled lines in
the counterfeit, and in the genuine six
lines. The localized fibre on the left of
the portrait is bine in the genuine, but
without color in the counterfeit. The red
seal in genuine is printed in a delicate
carmine color. In the counterfeit it is
more of a brick color, and has a heavy ap
pearance, more especially the rays, which
form the outside of the scab
Attention is called to the blurred and
scratched appearance of the lathe work
and lettering on the back of the counter
feit, which uT>on a comparison with the
genuine will readily be perceived.
