Balfe was a good rocalist and a fine composer. He sang in New York in 1834. He acquired such musical reputation as few English singers or com­posers have ever done. Balfe was born in Ireland, and was first distinguished as a singer. His voice was a barytone of moderate power, but his style was most beautifully finished and full of feeling. He afterwards merged the singer into the composer. His sparkling and effective operas enjoy popularity, as also his arrangement of Moore's melodies and other songs.
Looking at the uses of common sense in the school­room, they are legion. It may be said of teachers what an old Scotch elder said of ministers: " There be three things a mon needs to make him a success­ful minister, viz.: gude health, religion, and gude sense; if he can have but one o' these, let it be gude sense; for God can gie him health, and God can gie him grace, but naebody can gie him common sense. *
Music is the fourth great want of our nature ; first food, then raiment, then shelter, then music.—Bovee.
SILENTLY FALLING SNOW
German Aril. Wm. Orland Bourns.
How spotless it seems, and how pure,
I would that my spirit were so 1 Then, long as the soul shall endure, More brightly I'd shine than the snow.
Snow, snow, snow, More brightly I'd shine than the snow;
Snow, snow, snow. More brightly Vd shine than the snow.
But soon with the breath of the spring,
Down streamlets and rivers 'twill flow The season of summer will bring Bright flowers for silvery snow.
Snow, snow, snow, Bright flowers for silvery snow;
Snow, snow, snow, Bright flowers for silvery snow.
