THE'PROMENADE CONCERTS SEVENTT TEARS OLD. One does not need .to be very old to remember the days when promenade ' concerts were chiefly distinguished lor flashy and meretricious music as' op posed to the cultured and refined pro grammes provided to-day by Mr Henry J. Wood at the Queen's Hall. In fact, up till recently, dignity could hardly be , said to have been the distinguishing note of the promenade concert The idea was brought from Paris in 1838, and on Wednesday, lath Decem uer, w mm year me ui^t jimmcuauc concert was held at the Lyceum. It was announced as the first of a^, series of 'Concerts a la Musard,' Musard be ing a^ papular French conductor.

The deatb of Richard Mansfield Is so' ereut that will nioke !!UIe luipressltm upon most English playgoers, for fifteen or sixteen years or so have passed since he acted Jn England. His season at the Lyceum certainly attracted great atten tion, because bo presented a play, 'Doc- tor Jekyll and Mr Hyde.' wblcb greatly moved the public, and the Interest was Increased by the fact tUat uv opposition to him, Bandmann produced another version of tlie remarkable story, and was restrained by the law from,contlnu Inp to perform It. Mansfield also pre sented a melodrama, called, 1 think, 'A Parisian Bomance.' Unfortunately, neither play was a work errea! art vaiue, nor offered to the actor an oppor tunity of showing more than great poAver of- representing the horrible. I have no memory of the theatre moro vivid than of bis terrible first entrance as Mr Hyde; and bis deatb in Oie other play was a triumph of the repulsive. It was In the States, and by...

' LINKS WITH DICKENS. PAST DISAPPEARING. To the lover of Dickens the news of the sale, which has just taken place, of the famous Bull Hotel at Rochester, at which the famous Plckwlotc party 'put ?up' on their drive from London to the country recalls a host of associations, for it was here that Mr Jingle 'applied him self with great Interest to the port wine and dessert;' where Jingle, too.

' OMEBT A3O9 iTJIJLWill : ' ' ' ' Sir W.-S. Gilbert has -written a letter to the 'Dublin Evening Herald' In re ference to an article In that paper con cerning himself, which contained many errors. In the course of the letter he said;— 'A circumstantial account of the separation between Gilbert and Sul livan is given In great detail. There Is not a word of truth In that statement. The 'separation' was not between Gll luarf nnrt RiiIIIvbh.' hilt hptwippn 'mvRpJF and Mf D'Oyly Carte.' It arose from a queston whether a sum of L1500 for refurnishing the front of the Savoy Theatre was properly Included in the preliminary expenses of the production of The Gondoliers. I had no quarrel with Sir A. Sullivan, though a coolness existed between us for a time in conse quence of his declining to Interfere In the difference between Mr Carte and myself. This coolness lasted a very short time, and was quickly done away with by mutual expressions.'

THE CLOSING SESSION PUBLIC FEELING. 'PARLIAMENT A BORE. It seems to. Mr Sydney Brooks, writing in the London ' Daily Jlall' of 24th August, indisputable that, as a nation, we, the English, are I coming to look upon Parliament ' as rather a bore.

In America, when Congress adjourns, a vast incontinent sigh of relief goes up from every State in me union ; ine national spirits ex perience a sudden accession of light ness ; everyone congratulates every one else that another session is over and not much damage done. The Houso of Commons has not guile fallen to such depths of disre pute as all that. We do not light bonfires when It adjourns or is pro rogued, neither do we light them when It re'asembles.
