ALL THE BANDS, MADAME PESCHKA-LEUTNER, Jy2—It    aud    HERR    STRAUSS    I NEW PUBLICATIONS. ‘•The Kansas Magazine,” for July, has been received by A. Williams & Co. It contains eighteen interesting articles, among which we may particularly mention, “Our Public Land System.” “The Trade of Piracy,” “The Sons of the Border,” “The Industrial University Scheme,” and “A Bunch of Firecrackers.” In the paper on “The Sons of the Border,” the writer attempts to give an account of the influences which have made the borderer what he is,— influences which have cbunged his original character and nationality, and thrown him out of tho i»alc of Civilization. “He is a man,” says tho writer, “not born, buf, unconsciously to himself, macle by his surroundings and necessities. Ile may havo been born on the Chesapeake or tho banks of tho Juniata: he may hail from Lincolnshire or Cork: far Western life will clothe him with a new individuality, make him forget the tastes and habits of early life, and transform him into one of that restless horde of cosmopolites who form the crest of that slow wave of humanity which year by year creeps towards the setting san.” And he adds:—“The ideal Borderer, tho type of his class from Western Kansas to tile Rio Grande, you will And dad in calfskin boots, with broad-rimmed hat, worn askew, and his nether limbs encased in fancy cassimere*. There are rings nptn Ids fingers, and blazing jewels upon his breast. He is loud and defiant in dress, manners and general deportment. He dings with the tenacity of second nature to the language of the dance-house and the brothel. The happy thought of Colonel Colt, which has tilled more unmarked graves than the cholera and the plague, and eternally settled more disputes than all juries, is bis constant and valued companion, and ho wears his rakish hat awry upon his oily locks with the air of the king of all the loafers.” Hie present number of tho Kansan Magazine is somewhat of a Fourth of July number. Henry King, in an article on “A Bunch of Fire-Crackers,” gives a practical and sensible account of tho passage of tile Declaration of Independence. The paper contains some tilings ivhich will be new to most readers. After saying that we are naturally apt to imagine that tho Fourth of July, 1776, was a day of great excitement and rejoicing iii Philadelphia, he informs us that it was far otherwise. Here is the statement:— “The day was in fact quite dull. There eras no crowd of excited citizens, no booming of cannon, no open-air meeting, no bonfires and Illuminati .ms. Patriotic songs they could net have sung, if titty hail desired to, for they had none to sing—those now standard with im all being then unwritten. They did not fling out the flag of the new nation from the house-tops; and if they had made such a display, it would not have been the flag we now glorify, for it mads its first appearance more than a year later, at the battle of Saratoga. Every church bell in the city was silent; the Episcopal clergy wore King George’s collar, the Quakers were opposed to war on any account, and the Methodists were busy with a revival under the management of one Captain Webb. And no matter what might have happened, it would not havo got into print the next day, for there was no then a daily paper in the country, and only one semiweekly and thirty-six weeklies.” In another part of the number, the editor contributes a paper showing the order of succession by which many American flags were finally merged in the flag :— “In an article on the National Anniversary, in another part of this number of our Magazine, it is stated that the “stars and stripes” first floated at the battle of Saratoga, in the autumn of 1777, more than a year after the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. It should not be inferred from this that the country was without a flag up to that period, for such was not the case. On tho contrary, it ha I an abundance of tlifcm. WUeu tile first sounds of war were heard, and the Colonists began to organize military conqiaiiies, there was, aa poor Ilalpine sung. “A bloom of banners in the air,”— banners of various shapes, sizes and colors, and bearing all sorts of emblematic words and figures. Every Colony, and almost every regiment, had one of its own. Hie one that the troops carried at Breed’s Hill wus a rW flag, with a pine tree on a white field in the corner. The one that Putnam unfurled on Prospect Hill, a month later was also red, bearing on one side the motto Qui trails lute t instinct, aud on the other the inscription, “An apical to Heaven.” As the war progressed, most of the regiments and divisions of tho al lay had their names and numbers put on their flags, with three-word mottoes, such as "Llliorty or Death” (the one used by tho troops which Patrick Henry recruited) and “Conquer or Die” (the one adopted by Washington’s Life Guard.) The floating batteries first used a white flag, with the words “An appeal to Heaven” upon it. Ami the first flag used in battle at the South—tho one which Sergeant Jasper heroically placed on the summit of the merlon at Moultrie in the thickest of the fight, on the very day that the Declaration of Indei>e»dence was reported to the Continental Congress at Philadelphia— was a blue one, with a crescent in the comer. “Tho Colonies had a general flag, however, before the beginning of the Revolution, although It was rarely used on public occasions. It was the ancient national flag of England, the banner of St. George—a white field with a red cross. It was decided to discard this, and adopt a new and distinct flag, in the latter part of 1775; ami Congree* appointed Dr. Franklin, Mr. Harrison aud Mr. Lynch a committee to attend to the mattor. They went at once to tho ndiitary headquarters at Cambridge, aud ofter consulting with the officers there, agreed upon apian; aud the new flag was first displayed to tile army. January 2d, 1776—a flag of thirteen stri|>es of alternate red and white, having upon one of its corners the red aud white crosses of St. George and St. Andrew, on a (leid of blue, lids union of the former Colonial ling and tho then national flag of England was intended to signify that the Colonists did not yet desire to separate from tho mother country if they could secure their rights without it, while the thirteen stripes were meant to lie symbolical of the union of tile thirteen Colonies In demanding justice and defying wrong aud oppression. “The flag was not changed until the 14tli day of tile following June, when Congress resolved 'That the flog of the thirteen United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red aud white; and that the union be tldr-tecn white stars in a blue field, representing a new constellation. This resolution was not made public until Seiitember, 9, 1777, and the Ant flag manufactured according to Its requirements (Die thirteen stars being arranged in a circle) was that which led the American forces to victory at Saratoga. A Tory newspaper, alluding to the flag, said that Mrs. Washington had a mottled tom-cat with thirteen yellow rings around his toil, and Unit his flnuntiug it suggested to Congress the same number of stripes for the iiuw standard—which Indicates that baek-alley Journalism is not a creation of our times.” Hie original poetry of the number consists of a long piece by William M. Carleton, a recent Western poet of much promise. It is called “Some Time.” We quote the last verse :— “O fair and beautiful maiden, O pure and simple maiden, O grand and peerless maiden, created to adore, When never a bm came near thee that fouud thy own loved reason!, When never a boart came near thee thy own heart-wcalth could measure, What didst thou then, O maiden? didst smile as thou snidest now, With never the kiss of a lover upon thy snow-white brow ? ‘Oh, I was the same, same maiden, The simple and trusting maiden, The care toss and happy maiden, with all of my love in store; I gaily twined my tresses, and cheerfully went my way; I took no thought of the morrow, nor cared for the cares of the day; For I knew that some time—some tim©— Into the path of my being the joy of my life would giidV, And we by the gates of heaven would wander side by side.’ In “The Lay Preacher’s Sermon,” the writer quotes the following touching domestic jioem, without being able to tell the naiuo of the author Who did write it? “THE OLD COUPLE. ‘They sat in the sun together, Till the day was almost done, And then, at its close, an angel Stepped over tile threshold stone. ‘Ho folded their hands together, Ho touched their eyc-lids with balm, And their lost breath floated upward Uke tho close of a solemn psalm. ‘Like a bridal pair they traversed The unseen, mystical road, That leads to the Beautiful City, Whose Builder and Maker is God. 'Perhaps, in that miracle country, They will give her lost youth back, And the flowers of a vanished spring-time Shall bloom in the spirit’s track, 'One draught of the living waters Shall restore his maubood’s prime, And eternal years shall measure Tile love that outlives time. ‘But the shapes they left behind them,— The wrinkles and silver hair— Made sacred to us by the kisses Tile angel imprinted there,— ‘We’ll hide away in the meadow, When the sun is low in the west, Where tho moonbeams cannot find them, Nor the wind disturb their rest. ‘But we’ll lot no tell-tale tombstone, With its age aud date, arise O’er tho two who are old no longer— In their Father’s House in the skies.’ ”MUSICAL. FOURTEENTH DAY OF THE JUBILEE. The feature yesterday afternoon was tho first appearance of the Irish Band at the Coliseum. It is hardly necessary to say that their reception was of Hie heartiest description. It would be scarcely fair to criticize them from their performances of yesterday, as they had not recovered from the fatigue of their journey, to say nothing of their parade in the morning, w hich must have been very trying to them when the intense heat of the weather is taken into consideration. Their efforts were not of as ambitious a nature as those of the other foreign bands that have appeared here; but we presume they were unprepared tor the reasons above given. The first piece played by them wus "The Star Spangled Palmer,” which was received with shouts and other expressions of warm satisfaction, and was followed by a selection of Irish melodies. As each in turn was recognized, the audience manifested the most uproarious delight, especially with tho jig tunes and other qtdck move-* mcnts. An irresistible encore brought forth a set of quadrilles composed of Irish airs, which was also encored, and the last number repeated. We will not pass judgment upon Ute performances or call attention lo any shortcomings, preferring to wait until the players have had a fair opportunity to obtain that rest and confidence so necessary for them in order to exhibit their qualities to tho best advantage, and do themselves full credit. The other portions of the programme were greeted w ith the usual encores. The opening piece was the “Star Spangled Banner.” The French Band then played a tine selection from “ Faust" in their usual brilliant and finished manner. In reply to tile encore a solo fertile comet upon a motive from “ MasanloUo” was played with rare delicacy and expression. Some of the variations wero of remarkable difficulty, but were executed with the utmost precision, ami iii a charmingly finished style, it was succeeded by “ Believe me if all those endearing young charms,” sung iii chorus. Madame I’eschka-Leutner then sang the air of the Queen of Nights from Mozart’s “ Magic Flute” for the first time. Tiffs solo abounds In difficulties, not only of technique, but of tile trying demands it makes upon tile voice. It is out of the compass of most voices, but Madame Le ut Her made nothing of it, singing the extreme high notes with the greatest ease, aud executing Ute difficult passages abounding iii awkward intervals aud complicated runs w ith the utmost precision. It won an overwhelming encore, and was repeated, notwithstanding IU fatiguing nature, with Hie same purity and beauty of style aud method that distinguished its first rendition. Strauss was of course tuado the recipient of a prolonged round of Applause wbeu he came forward to conduct his “Wine, Women aud Song” waits, which was redemanded, but was supplemented instead by the popular and unique "Pizzicato Polka.” After the performance of tho Irish Band, “ Hie Harp that once through Tara’s Hails” was sting by the chorus, accompanied by the band, the organ and orchestra. Kiln bet’s part-song, “The Soldier’s Farewell,” was sung by the tenors and basses of the chorus, and was repeated In response to the heavy encore that rewarded its execution. The Band of the Grenadier Guards performed the overture to “Zaiupa” with great brilliancy aud exactness, the passages in triplets for the violins being rendered very clearly and distinctly by the clarinets and cornets. It wa.! followed by a I* ilka for the cornet will ok was remarkably for the precision with which some difficult double-long.dug aud staccato passages were played. The plaudits that were bestowed upon it, obtained from the baud yet another piece (consisting this time of a selection of Irish airs) which was received with the wildest enthusiasm, and was followed by “ Yankee Doodle,” “Auld Lung Syne,” and “ God Save the Queen.” “ The Last R<mw of Summer ” was sung by the Bouquet of Artists, and the German Band then appeared and played the overture to “Don Juan’’ and several other pieces. They too were heartily applauded and played in their beet style. It is certainly a splendid orgatdzation, and their playing is marked by a majesty and fulness that gain tqiun acquaintance, lf they play with less delicacy and refinement than the English and French bauds, they have a dramatic intensity which these latter do nut po**cs*s,iii addition to an earnestness* and a power that arc quite their own. Tho hymn “With cue Consent let all the Earth” concluded the concert, which was, however, prolonged to so late an hour by frequent encores that the later pieces were given to almost empty benches. MUSICAL NOTES. It is proposed to erect a statue to Berliox at Paris, A large library is to be attached to the new opera house at Parts. M. Verger, the Italian o|»era house director in Paris, has brought an action against Madame Basso, for singing in Rouen without his leave; the lady caught a cold, aud was unable, on her return, to play Amia Bolcna, whereby the manager incurred a considerable loss. The I yond on Choir refers to two new works of con* siderable Importance, announced for performance in Paris during the next few months—“Redemption,” a “fioeme symphonique,” by M. Caesar Franck, and “Paradise Lost,” an oratorio in four parts by M. Theodore Dubois, whose setting of the “Seven Last Words” has been frequently alluded lo of late in our columns. i The London Orchestra Indulges In the following vein of irony at the ex|>enaj of the mild great German Orpheus: When the artist has found out he really can compose music, he seeks for the drama, and In this form of human life lets out all his heart. “ Ah!” said Haydn, “ you should hear my operas.” But he did not ask for a new theatre. Mozart was content with one about the size of that known aa our Strand Theatre. A board aud some green cloth sufficed for Shakespeare; a sofa and a helmet were about the all of Handel’s requirements. And yet Haydn wrote over forty operas, so did Handel and Mozart some teu. Wagner has devised three—a trilogy, which he describes as “Der Ring des Nibelugcn,” and for tho proper understanding of which he propounds a quartet prologue, entitled “Das Rhetngold,” “Die Wallkure,” "Der Junge Siegfried” and “Ootterdam-merung.” There is a peculiarity touching these seven transcendental dramas. They are free, and call for a free theatre, a free orchestra, free actors and singers and a free country. Wagner applies to his kind and exalted patron, tho King of Bavaria, and ultimately it is arranged that there shall tie a proper theatre, a real opera house built especially for the Wagner drama, and Balreuth shall be its home. On the 22d ult. Wagner and a select band of three hundred met at Baireuth to lay the foundation stone. King Louis did not show, but His Majesty sent a letter, which was duly read and then buried vs itll other records under the foundation stone. 'Hie royal missive was as follows: “To tho poet-composer, Richard Wagner. This day is a day significant and of the utmost importance to all Germany. I send yon, my dearest friend, my warmest and most sincere well wishes. I do so from the very depths of my soul. I hail and bless your great undertaking, and am to-day more than ever united with you In spirit.—Ludwig.” All this is very gracious and kind-hearted on the part of the King of Bavaria, and shows the value and Importance after all of a patron, for where would Richard Wagner lie but for his generous and ever-hoping and always-protecting and everlastingly-paying friend and patron, King Louis of Munich? But for King Louis there would have been no triology and no prologue, no grand day and no preparatory nights. Ten days before this festival of the Foundation Stone ti ie re were to have been performances in Vienna, at tho Imiierial Opera House there, of the “Tannbauser” and the “Hclstersinger,” but such did not take place. Wagner had to put up with tho representation of the “Rienzi”—music, although his own, be despises; and to witness a performance he grieved over. The theatre will not be opened before the spring of 1874. It will tako this time to bring the new stage scenery into working order, nor can the singers master their roles without this allowance of time for study and practice. There was one touch of the German nature in this singular festival. Wagner embraced his wife and children, and there was a general fraternizing all round and in all corners. THE DRAMA. BOSTON THEATRE. The Yoke* Family appeared last night in a bright little sketch entitled “Hie Wrong Man in the Hight Place.” The plot is the slightest thing imaginable. Benjamin Buttontop is pursued by the police and takes refuge in a young ladles’ college near London, where he is taken by two of the young ladles for a nobleman in difficulties and is sheltered and protected by them. After a number of highly amusing contre-■ ♦nips the truth is discovered, explanations ensue, and the curtain falls. The piece is full of fun and bustle, while the action never for a moment lags. Miss Victoria Vokes and Mr. Fred. Vokes sing a duet from “Troratore” in capital style. Miss Rostna Vokes introduces a peculiarly original aud grotesque dance, which she executes with great cleverness; and Mr. Fred Vokes dances a burlesque polka with the most boneless flexibility. Ttie piece concludes with a quadrille, which is remarkable for the originality and prettiness of the figures that compose it. Everything was heartily applauded, and there were several encores. It is just the piece to pleasantly kill an hour on a warn night, which would otherwise drag wearily along. It will prove quite as popular as the piece in which the Vokes first appeared here, and Is just as full of clever actiug, capital singing aud extraordinary dancing. It was preceded by “ Betsey Baker,” which introduced several new faces to a Boston audience; but we cannot speak in terms of high commendation of the maimer in which Hie farce was performed. Miss Jennie Lee is rather pretty and buxom, and acted with a certain spirit, but every now and (Leu she marred ber efforts by reminiscences vt the blonde burlesque school that were eminently out of place. Mr. Howard’s Mr. Mouser was exaggerated both in action ami conception, and ids tone of voice was too noisy throughout. Hie same bill w ill be repeated through the week, DRAMATIC NOTES. Hie French are farming a “ Moliere Club ” on an exclusive basis. Members must be actors or drama: ie auliiors, and candidates must have one actor and one dramatic author to propose them. Boucicault has been at tt again. His new bantling is christened “Daddy O’Dowd,” ami is said to be full of sensations and buncombe hibemicisms. It is to bo acted at once, with the author, of course, as the most conspicuous.figure. The Dlustrlrto Zeitung mentions the performance of Tnglionl’s new ballet, entitled “Militaria,” at the Berlin Opera House. The plot of the ballet consist •» of the adventures of the German soldiers in France, and tho music and mise en scene are spoken of in high terms. Hic London Orchestra is glad to believe that the Lord Chamberlain’s regard for decency in dress is not eon fined to occasionally lecturing the ballet, but has directed Itself to that class at society which outrages modesty more frequently than do ballet girls. His Lordship Is understood to have addressed a circular to tim London Court dressmakers, warning them that ladies in square cut bodices will net be admitted to the royal drawing rooms in future. Hie role is to be stringent. This is commencing at the right end. The young gentlemen of the stalls who admire a dicole 14 style on the stage will no longer have the excuse that they simply approve a fashion which their mothers and sisters follow in the Aret society.
