    Little Miss Waddell played a violin solo, which did her infinite credit, some excellent manipulations of the bells were rendered by several gentlemen, and the programme was otherwise well filled up with glees, duets and trios. Haydn's toy symphony was undoubtedly the feature of the evening, the performance reflecting very great credit on those who took the respective parts. ...

    Last night, through the instrumentality of Miss Butler, the unfortunates whom the reverses of this world and disease and accident have made inmates of the Bathurst Hospital, were the recipients of a pleasurable hour. Messrs. Thompson, W. G. Smith, Fuller, Walter Naylor, and A. J. Dowse played several selections, whilst solos were rendered by Miss Kelk and Mr. T. Thompson. The gem of the evening was a violin solo by Miss Leila Waddell. Refreshments were served by the matron and nursing staff, and partaken of by the visitors, who numbered about 50. Needless to say, the kind attentions of the instrumentalists, soloists, staff and visitors proved agreeable to the patients, and all those concerned in the work of mercy are to be congratulated on the event of last evening.

Numbers of ladies and gentlemen have kindly agreed to give their services whilst the Fair lasts.

    The first of the Harvest moonlight concerts was given by the Wesleyan Choir last evening at the Wesleyan Chapel on the Vale Road. About eight or nine buggies filled with members of the choir and friends, left the Wesleyan parsonage at 7 p.m., and after an enjoyable drive alighted at the Chapel and began the concert. The programme was as follows:— Chorus (choir), 'They that trust in the Lord;' solo, Mr. C. Toovey; solo, Mr. James; chorus (choir), 'One day more;' solo, Miss Henlen; duet, Misses Apps and W. White; musical reading, Rev. C. E. James; chorus (choir), 'To Thee Great Lord;' violin solo, Miss L. Waddell; solo, Miss W. White; solo, Mr. W. Mitchell; chorus (choir), 'Jesus shall reign.' The company returned to the city at the conclusion of the concert. The whole affair was a great success, the bracing drive to and from the Chapel along the briar-scented and willow bordered road being by no means the least enjoyable part. The idea of the concert is not so much to provide the musical treat to the places visited, as to provide outings for the Choir, who deserve every consideratian for their labors in making the music a feature of the services at the William-street Church. Next Monday the Choir will visit Macquarie Plains, and Dunkeld on Tuesday.

    At All Saints' Cathedral last night an organ recital was given by the organist, Mr. C. W. Naylor, assisted by members of the choir, and Misses Ashbury and L. Waddell and Master Crago. The different vocal and instrumental numbers were well rendered, and the organ solos by Mr. Naylor were played in his usual finished style. Miss Lena Waddell played two violin solos well, and Miss Ashbury contributed a vocal solo, and Master Crago a number on the organ. There were only about a hundred persons present. The Dean explained that the organ recitals were usually held on Wednesday, but that night's recital clashed with another function which was being held in town, and that probably accounted for the small attendance. There was an offertory during the evening.

Smith, the well-known teacher of the violin, has formed a Ladies' Orchestral and Vocal Society, the object of which is to produce first-class music, the performers only being ladies. Abt's Cantata "The Isle of Song," will be the first "work" to be produced before the public, and in to-day's Free Press a rehearsal is announced for Wednesday evening next. We understand that no fee is charged for membership. Miss S. Pedrotta, the secretary of the society, will supply all information. This, we believe, is the first society of its kind in the colony.

    The freetraders of this city held a demonstration in the School of Arts Hall last night in order to celebrate the return to Parliament of Mr. Sydney Smith, and the victory of the Reid party at the polls. The proceedings assumed the form of a musical programme rendered by local amateurs, interspersed with speeches congratulatory of Mr. Smith's and the Government's success in this election. The audience were most enthusiastic, and many of those present were boisterous in their reception of the singers and some of the speakers. The Mayor (Alderman W. P. Bassett) presided, and besides many other gentlemen, Mr. J. E. Tonkin, ex-member for the Macquarie, occupied a seat on the platform. The Chairman said they were met for a twofold purpose: To do honor to Mr. Sydney Smith and to congratulate themselves on the glorious victory which freetrade had, during that election, achieved throughout New South Wales. (Applause.) ...
    During the evening the following musical programme was rendered:— Piano duet, Mr. and Mrs. Maynard; song, Mr. Furness; violin solo, Miss L.

This must be a source of satisfaction. Although he did not agree with forcing the education of women, in some directions, yet in the cultivation of music they could not go too far, for in it they had the solace of life and the comfort of home. ...

    Last night St. Stephen's Church was filled with a large congregation, who were afforded a musical treat in the shape of a sacred concert by the best local talent. The programme was remarkably attractive, a pleasing feature was that the music, though classical character was not beyond the appreciation of the ordinary listener. A strong choir, under the baton of Dr. Kirkland, rendered several Christmas carols in a capital manner, and the Bathurst orchestra, under Mr. W. G. Smith, was no less successful. The soioists formed a strong feature of the concert, and their numbers were taking and attractive. A pleasing item on the programme was the rendering by the choir of an anthem, 'Oh Lord my God,' composed by St. Stephen's organist, Mr. W, H. Naylor. This composition is graceful, smooth and dignified, and speaks well for Mr. Naylor's ability. The entire programme consisted of the following numbers. ...
    ;violin solo, 'Legende' (Wieniawski), Miss Leila Waddell; ...
    ;selection, 'Gloria, 12th Mass' (Mozart), Bathurst Orchestra; ...
    'Hark! the Herald Angels Sing' choir, orchestra, and congregation.
    An interval in the music afforded Rev. Jas. Kinghorn an opportunity of addressing a few remarks to those present. He congratulated the organist of the church (Mr. Walter Naylor) for his composition. He took the opportunity of saying how delighted the choir and organizers of the concert were to see such a large audience. He also thanked the orchestra and other ladies and gentlemen who had assisted St. Stephen's choir on that occasion. He welcomed the Bathurst Orchestra to St. Stephen's. He understood that was the first appearance of the orchestra in that Church, and he hoped it would be by no means the last. ...
