BEHIND THE SCENES AT THE OPERA. A FAMOUS IMPRESARIO. (Pall .Mall Gazette.) The flood of re niniscences which each autumn brings with it has begun this year with the very entertaining memoirs of Mr, Mapleson. The two volumes which he publishes to-day are full of reminiscences bf famous singers, which are at once good-natured and amusing. Not even a prima donna is a heroine to her own ipresario, and Mr. Mapleson has not, as too many memoir writers do, uniformly dipped his pen into honey. A VOICELESS TENORn. Before proceeding, to give our readers a few samples of the kind of entertainment to be met with in these volumes, it will be interesting to refer to a passage or two in the early career of Mr. Mapleson himself. He had prepared himn self for the duties of operatic isprreario by a long apprenticeship both as a singer and a musical manager.

BRIGHTON LIBRARfDEBATINr?IElBD: On Tuesday evening, 20th Nov. the usual fortnightly meeting of the above club was held at the Library, J. Webb, Esq. (vice-president) occupied thechair. The attendance was very good. After the preliminary business had been transacted, Mr. G. G.rebster opened a debate on the question, "Should the Australian Colonies have the right to exclude objectionable aliens ?" In a very a' le speech, he contended that we should closely inspect the classes of immigrants who came to these shores, and that we should have the power to hinder the influx of criminals and others whose presence here would be detrimental to our welfare and progress. Eventually after an animated dsscussion had ensued, not upon the main proposition, but upon the arguments and instances evinced in support of his views by the opener, it was deceded without disent that the colonies should have the power of excluding objectionable aliens.
