very prominent in this city for the past
year, as a music teacher, aud who has
won many warm friends during her stay
here, returned to her home at Hopedalr.

will remain there for several months,
after which, we learn that it is her inten

as well inform music students who hv
been laboring under her instructions for
the past year, th.it they need not wait for
her to return intending to resume theb
studies under her tuition, as a mor
interesting and advanced scholar will
then occupy her attention.
Both entertainments given at the
opera house the last two evenings were
a, grand success in every way. The young
ladies of the Y. L. R. R- A., under whose
auspices the entertainments were given,
have cleared about $70 in all, which is
considered a very fair recompense for
their labors. The receipts at the opera
house last night amounted to about $55.
and the evening before, about $75. The
audience apparently appreciated the per
formance hist night even more than the
eyening before, if such a thing were pos
sible. The style of the entertainment was
considered the nml complete of any
ever given in this city by home talent.
Every person who attended was favor
ably impressed, and when sich is the
case in this critical city, the entertainment
.can only be firsl-clas.

audience gradually warmed up to a
