MRS. BROWN-POTTER. We present herewith a portrait of Mrs. Brown-Potter, the American actress, who is to make hor first appearance in Australia this month, at the Princess's Theatre, Molbourne. According to a favorable critic : ' She has intel ligence of more than com in on kind, and true dramatic fire. She is young, sho rs beautiful, and she impresses by her intensity. Born of an old Southern family, she is ladylikoand supremoly graceful. She is of medium height, sho is lithe, and with her red-brown hair, regular feature*1, and deep, lustrous, 'dark eyes:— which light up wonderfully under the display of the various emotions— she forms a striking stago picture She is entirely unconventional in her acting ; her style is free and unfettered. She made hor first appoaranoo in London at the Haymarket Theatre, oa 29th Maroh, 1887, as Anne Silvester, in Man and Wife.

THE ORCHESTRA. NO. V. [Newspaper Article] — Illustrated Australian News and Musical Times — 1 February 1890
THE ORCHESTRA; . ... Nb.-V.. : We will now devote a short space to the study of' tho mechanioal aspect of tho orchestra. Mechanism, in its plainest .meaning, hasnntui ally as much to do with the production of musical sounds as the brain of the composer hns to do with the music he writes, although the more that pure mechanism is kept con cealed in the actual performance of music the moro of tho character of inspiration is revealed. .Still the mere machinery of musical instruments must be as porfectly adjusted and as critically regulated, as the interior of a chronometer or the parts of a steam engine. Nor does this statcmont despoil music in the slightest degree of its romance and poetry, seeing thnt tho body of the most intolloctunl . and spiritual minded man is only kept in a state of life arid activity by tho internal motion of « somewhat simply constructed pump. And although it is by no moans neoesaary to remember, but perhaps obviously judicious to forgot it, still there is no c...
