It hail some grains of truth, at least, That fable of the Sybarite, For whom, because one leaf was creased, Tile rose-strewn couch had no delight. I think not even sanguine youth Expects its gold without alloy; But this is still the sober truth: A little pain can mar much joy. ’Tis pity that one thwarting thought, One adverse chance, one sudden fear Or sharp regret, can turn to nought The full content that seemed so near! But this strange life of ours abounds With notes so subtle, they afford A thousand discords and harsh sounds For one harmonious perfect chord. — Chambers’*. NEW PUBLICATIONS. Few of our readers are, we suppose, Ignorant of the writings of F. C. Burnand, the author of “Happy Thoughts,” “More Happy Thoughts,’' etc., originally contributed to the London Pmich. Roberts Brothers, of Ibis city, have recently issued a new volume by this humorist, entitled “Happy-Thought Hall,” with numerous quaint illustrations by the author. Mr. Burnand has struck an original vein of humor. It may not be rich, but it is new. The writer conceives a young Englishman, of moderate fortune, who Is a good deal of a simpleton and a little of a snob, who has an ambit! on to distinguish himself as a writer. He lins four friends, Caroli, Milbunl, Booilels and Chllvem, varying in character, but agreeing In what may be called the eccentricity of commonplace. Whenever a question comes up they advise our hero to do something foolish, but each opposes Hie folly of the others. The result is a succession of “Happy Thoughts,” the triviality of which Is rendered amusing by the gravity with which they are recorded, anil the fact that they are eventually to be embodied in an imagined book which is to be of immense learning and value. Tho intellect of the hero is hardly above the level of Master Slender; It Just occasionally twinkles out of its abyss of imbecility ; and yet the whole representation is inexpressibly funny.    J The present volume, “Happy Thought Hall,” is one of the most entertaining of the series. Under the guidance of his friends, our poor little innocent hires a country house for the winter, and has theatrical performances there. The guests and performers are all portrayed pictorially as well as by wools. The farce played is given in full, and is laden with bits at the style of wit which now obtains at the London .theatres. The other entertainments, scientific, musical and literary, are amusingly described. When the party breaks up, the four friends of the hero, who are bound by a tie which unites them with him In a brotherhood of expense as well os of good feeling, hit on the happy thought of making him pay all the debts contracted. Here is the statement, “Cazell says to me, ‘I tell you what you ought to do as President. You ought to draw one cheque for the whole expense, and we’ll pay you back. That’s the roost simple way of doing it.’ Put to the vote and the iJan carried, with a minority of one (myself.)” The volume may be called tho glorification of littleness. In this hot weather, when mental exertion is almost a nuisance, it is pleasant to light on so amusing a book. The Association of the Alumni of Harvard have issued a pamphlet of 128 pages, entitled “The Necrology of Harvard College, 1869-1872.” It contains a large number of interesting biographical notices and cannot fall to be prized by the graduates of the University. The committee appointed to prepare tho Necrology were J. L. Sibley, G. S. Hillard, T. B. Fox, H. Wheatland, W. Higginson, F. A. Whitney, T. W. Higgeuson, S. A. Green, H. G. Denny, W. P. Upham and It. W. Merrill. The work has been done with taste anil judgment. We quote the tribute to Dr. Gannett, an able, earnest, self sacrificing and thoroughly good man, the manner of whose death sent a shock of grieved surprise through a wide circle of loving friends: “Dr. Gannett was a man of rare and high gifts, moral and intellectual. His written style was pure, simple and forcible. In prayer aud extemporaneous discourse In which he hail few equals, ho poured forth bis earnest soul In a rushing stream of fervid speech. No servant of the Lord ever worked in his Master’s vineyard with a more devoted and self-sacrificing spirit. Neither ill-health nor infirmity, nor the depressing influence of a desponding tem]ieranient, could abate his energy or chill his zeal. Tho work he did was enough to task the most robust health and the highest, spirits. He hail all the Christian virtues, and e»i>eeially the peculiarly Christian virtue of humility. In no man of our community were the characteristics understood by the term apostolic more marked than in bim.” Perhaps In this testimony to Dr. Gannett’s worth, sufficient emphasis is not lakl on tho peculiarity of of his disinterestedness. Fanatics are usually impelled by enthusiasm; Dr. Gannett always appeared to us a fanatic of duty. After spending all his energies in Christian work, after doing all that Coil had given him strength to do, he was profoundly depressed by his short-comlngs in bls high calling. His virtues of commission seemed to bim uh nothing when compared with his sins of otnisssou. Though a strong Unitarian, he had a good deal of that spirit of self-abasement we notice In Evangelical saints. His activity in good works amazed those who know him, and his friends and jwrishloners were always more anxious to abate than to stimulate It, for they saw he w as always stretching hts powers of endurance to their utmost capacity, and that he must at some time utterly break down. The colleague aud successor of Channing, he was in disposition his opposite. Channing carefully iiurt-iMI what health he had; Gannett squandered his prodigally. Channing was tranquil in the calm contemplation of his idea#; Gannett was ..disquieted by bis incapacity to do what he conceived ta he bls work. Channtng’s mind was particularly occupied by his grand abstraction of the dignity of human nature; Gannctt’s heart was stirred by the spectacle of Its concrete and most ignoble specimens, anil by the thought of his duty to give them a lift upwards. Channing was serene because he hail faith in ideas; Gannett was despairing because he could not do all he wished to save and elevate individuals. He was in truth one of Duty’s fanatics—the noblest of all fanaticisms. He was so constituted that ho could have no peace In retirement from active work; and ho died in harness, a true soldier cf the Lord. The Protestant Episcopal Society for the Promotion of Evangelical Knowledge, have published “The Pastoral Office; Its Duties, Difficulties, Privileges and Prospects: by the Rev. Ashton Oxenden, Rector of Sluckley, Kent.” The volume contains eighteen short chapters, full not only of good advice but of a fervid desire to make the advloe efficient. If the ministers of the Church of England would practically follow it, they would make their church dominant among the people. Mr. Oxenden pleases as well as inspires. His spirit is thoroughly Christian. He Is a good writer, but a better man. A certain richness is given to the style by apt quotations of illustrative sentences, drawn from the most distinguished ami pious of English divines clergyman, whatever may be the doctrine he preaches can fall to find help, Inspiration and consolation In the book of this excellent rector. (Received by A. Williams A Co.) It Ib impossible for us to read all the novels which are issued In ti is country, whether of foreign or domestic manufacture. Indeed the writing of novels has become a business, like that of forging iron or spinning sheetings. We are overwhelmed with novels moral, religions, worldly, sensational. Abraham Lincoln’s observation and experience of life occasionally reminded him of “a little story.” In Germany .France, England and Uhs United States, a similar observation and experience of life reminds the romance writers of a big story. They are comjielled to utilize their knowledge. There is an enormous amount of “padding” iii our best fictitious narratives; and if we ever have a Professorship of fiction in any of our American colleges, we trust that Boccaccio and Voltaire will be selected as of the first authority in the matter of condensation, fhongb certainly not In morals. Anthony Trollope, had lie attempted to embody the essential sentiment of Boccaccio’s “Falcon,” would probably have missed It altogether In the attempt to expand it into three volumes; and even Thackeray might have learned much from a study of Voltaire’s “Candia” and “Princess of Babylon.” In Voltaire as in Thackeray, the primiUve motive is satirical; both narrate Incident* and represent characters from a common impulse to satirize what they observe; but Voltaire writes with the compactness of a genius who flashes his story through the telegraphic wires, while Thackeray, living in the age of telegraphic communication, Is as I mig-win doll as he is bright. We suppose the reason for the difference is, that Voltaire made his fortune by shrewd business speculations, and was indifferent to money In the matter of literary work; anil that Thackeray depended on literature for a living, anti could not afford to indulge in the luxury of condensation. But tills is a long introduction to a very simple duty. Our object in starting wn* merely to say that James R. Osgood & Co. have published a novel called “Choisy," by James P. Story, an American writer. On rapidly glancing through Its twenty-two chapters we admit our incapacity to convey an idea to our readers of its plot; but that It contains many signs that the author lias some knowledge of the fashionable life of New York and Paris, and is capable of representing It with brilliancy and point, cannot be doubted. "Ohoiwy” may have many faults, but it Is unmistakeably readable. Tile ninth volume of “Llppincott's Magazine,” containing the numbers from January to June Inclusive, baa been received by Lee & She pan I. It makes a handsome illustrated octavo of over 700 pages, with a large number of illustrations—ttiose perha|is of WliymperV series of six papers, "Scrambles among the Al)*,” being the best. As we have noticed each manlier of the Magazine, os it appeared, there is no need of enumerating the many articles of value and interest which the book contains. The typographical elegance of this periodical appears all the more evident, as we look over the half-yearly volume. “Lippiucott’s” is edited by one of the most accomplished historical and general scholars In the country, Mr. J. F. Kirks, the author of “Charles the Bold.” His miuute, critical knowledge of French literature is shown In many a literary notice in the numbers of the present beautiful octavo. J. B. Lippineott & Co., of Philadelphia, have published, in a duodecimo volume,”Pennsylvania Dutch, and Other Essays.” It is a curious and interesting book, treating of tho language, manners, customs, festivals, politics and religion of tim class of Germans who arc classed under the name from which the book takes it* title. We have been particularly edified by the chapter on “Tile Dunker Lovo-feast" and tliat on “Cousin Jemima.” Tim writer has eviilently studied the population with core, for he represents it with the insight derived from sympathy, (Received by Lee & Shepard.) MUSICAL. FIFTEENTH DAY OF THE JUBILEE. Yesterday’s concert presented no features of marked Interest. There were many repetitions, and the waits between the pieces were of a length.that interfered seriously with the enjoyment of tho audience. These delays have grown to be a regular portion of the entertainment of late, and have increased day by day until they have become absolutely trying to the good nature of those who attend tho Coliseum, The concert opened with the overture to “ William Tell,” and was followed by the band of tho Grenadier Guards, who played the overture to “ Der Frelschutz” superbly, anil as an encore gave Mr. Godfrey’s charming waltzes. The chorus “ Thanks bo to God ” was then repeated, after which tho German Band appeared, and accompanied Madame Peschka-Leutner in an aria from "Martha” with exquisite delicacy. Tho piece was encored, and Madame Le littler then sang “The Star-Spangled Banner," creating a perfect furore by the fire and expression with which she rendered It. The band then played Flotow’s “Jubel” overture, and for the encore gave a spirited quick march in their own Inimitable style. Strauss followed with his “Knnstler I.ebeii" waltz, and, iii response to the encore, a brilliant polka. The hymn, "Nearer, my God, to Thee,’’ began the second part, after which the Irish Band came forward and were vociferously received, shouts and outbursts of phenomenal whistling playing a larger shore in the welcome than tho conventional clapping of hands and stamping of feet. They played a selection from J Hies Benedict’s opera upon the subject of “Tile Colleen Bawn,” and entitled “The Lily of Killarney.” The piece was remarkable for little except too much of the “Cruishkeen La un” and general dulness. It was exceedingly long and tiresome, and its execution was not markon by any excellence that should call forth special comment. They played with somewhat greater smoothness than was apparent in their jierforuiances of Monday, and some of the solos were given with tolerable fairness, but beyond thlB we are not disposed to go at present in passing judgment upon them. The band has some very good elements, and will doubtless do still better when they feel more at home. The selection was encored, and was followed by a quadrille composed of Irish national airs. This was also warmly applauded, and was played with more spirit and character than marked the playing of the first piece. The Emperor’s Cornet Band then gave Mohrlng's “Freudenfest-Grusse,” with charming sentiment and delicacy, and were encored. Coria*’ chorus “Damascus,” from the oratorio of “Naaman,” followed and was capitally sung, the portions for the soprano voices being given with great clearness and unity. A selection from “Robert Ie Liable” w as then played by the French Band, who were greeted as usual with marked and hearty enthusiasm. The performance was of course brilliant and effective, and won tho customary and unavoidable encore, notwithstanding the lateness of the bout, and in reply gave a piece whose most prominent feature was a solo for picolo, abounding in difficulties of the most trying description. It was magnificently executed, and with a fulness aud smoothness of tone, to say nothing of the extraordinary clearness of articulation, that we have never beard equalled on this instrument. A march by the orchestra brought the concert to a termination. It is almost impossible to say anything now ahull the performances at th* Coliseum. The critical vocabulary Is limited, and adjectives and adverbs are not inexhaustible. We have a small stock of both on hand, as yet unhackneyed, but they are of a derogatory nature, and we have had but few opportunities afforded us to use words of that class In connection wilh the Jubilee concerts. Tim words “enthusiasm," “applause,” “encore ” and “reception” became monotonous to pen before the Jubilee was a week old, and, after having exhausted every synonym for them of which we had knowledge agd resorted to euphemism as a last resource, we long ago found ourselves forced to return to them In sheer desperation. We feel that we shall never write the words again with unmingled pleasure. Some of the New York papers have even grown weary of the monotony of the vituperative strain in which they have written concerning the Festival, and have tried tho, to them, novel course of speaking the truth regarding It, and giving it such credit aa it realty deserves. Of course, it will not for a moment be supposed that Ute Herald is included in this eleventh-hour repentance. It holds out to the last, and will, ti ue to Its Instincts, misrepresent to the end, footing it has no character for morality to lose, and no law of decency to respect. The Tribune pays the following very pretty compliment to the good management that has characterized the affair: '* Bo the Jubilee is to pay expenses after all. Well, Certainly no conscientious    we are heartily glad of that. It would have beau a .. j——». *.—    great pity tf all the enterprise, all the public spirit, and all the admirable organisation which have gone to the making of this fen ti val had been unrecognised by the people. Whatever we may say of the music, there can tie no question that the Jubilee has been from one point of view the most successful affair of the kind ever seen. It has been a marvel of good management. Fifteen thou -sand chorus singers have daily passed in and out at one end of the building; from five to twenty-five thousand spectators have daily passed In and out at the oth«r, and there has been no more confusion than if this multitude had been a little church congregation. Think of the elaborate preparations at the ticket office, the drilling of the ushers, the goon temper and presence of mind of the officials, which all this presupposes. Then think of supplying fifteen thousand singers and two thousand players with their music. Think of the problem of getting them promptly into their seats. Think of the trouble which Osgood, Niles, Dunham. Payson, and their good colleagues most have had in satisfying the four thousand more or less genuine representatives of the newspaper profession who shared the hospitalities of the Press room, where the extravagance of a correspondent’s claims for attention were always in an inverse ratio to the importance of his paper. The average number of seats assigned every day to journalists was over eleven hundred, and on one day as many as three thousand eight hundred tickets were Issued to the Press. Yet everything was done quietly and in order. The Coliseum was not very easily accessible, so they made streets to reach It. by. It was at the crossing of two steam railroads, so they fenced in the tracks, built five or six huge bridges across them, and graded the approaches. The more one thiuks of the festival the greater it seems to be. And there la probably no city in America—pethaps there is none in the world—where so great an enterprise could be so decorously and happily carried out, except Boston.” MUSICAL NOTES. Tile collection of ancient Instruments now on exhibition at the South Kensington Museum has some very curious specimens. In foreign curiosities there are the rude violin of the Nubian, the quaint stringed instrument of Japan and China, and drums ami horns from all parts of the world. A neatly polished skull is made into Hie butt-end of a West African harp. There are a nose flute from sunny Otaheite, and a really handaome nose trumpet from New Zealand, a tiny flute made from the tibia of a monkey by the Jcbaroe Indians, tom-toms and reed instrument* of the most primitive kind. Hyder All’s characteristic gift to bis young son Tippoo also finds a place here. It was taken, as will be remembered, at the siege of Serlngapatam, and represents, life-size, an English officer groaning under the claws of a tiger. Tile handle which works the toy sticks out of the beast’s forequarter. The officer groans out of a brass pipe, which decidedly detracts from the beauty of bis mouth. There are other extraordinary contrivances, such as nailviolins, “balalaikas,” “halbmomis” and what not, with strange oriental contrivances, from sweet-toned “suitars,” made of sandal-wood and ivory, to the rude gourd, spotted with scarlet anil black abrus-seeils, upon which the Hindoo juggler blows to tempt the cobra from his hole. Apropos of cobras, the old-fasldoncd serpent—an instrument still used In remote village choirs—Is also shown. The outlandish collection includes the war-drurn of the King of Ashanti, with two human jawbones suspended from the sides, and an instrument most accurately described in the catalogue as “very peculiar.” It was made from the head of the Duke of Schora-berg’s horse, killed at the battle of the Boyne.
