THE SWISS JODELLERS.
Oar reader will be K lad to learn that Ml Jlnkios, of the Erm of HugtieJ and Jlnklns, advance manager for the JungfrauKapelie Oompaay, who hare been drawing immense aodlenoes m the northern towns of the oolony and thenoa to Ohrlstobnroh, was m Albburton yesterday making arrangements for a two nights' season here. The musical performances of these Swiss Singers are spoktn of ai most charming, and tbe speotaoalar effeefc of the dresses and accessories as equally excellent. They have been reoelved afmost with enthusiasm everywhere, and tbt following is one of numerous oangratn- ' latocy letters forwarded to them by dls* • tingulshed personages. Rev. J. IE. Bromby, than of St. Paul's, Melbourne write* : — " I wish In few words to express the high gratification I have felt In listening to the charm* ing performances of yoar Swiss, and Tyrolese friends. Whether vooal of instrumental they are equally well rendered, and are very striking, partly on aooouut of the simplicity of the Instru-ments,-by whioh tha music Is produced, but principally by the perfeot precision of tune and time with which it reaches the i ear. I may also add that the taste displayed m the aooompanyiog decorations, ■ which, (although not preoiiely Swiss ' scenery, yet along with the graceful aostumQ of the performers) give an agreeable effeot to tbe general character 'of the: wild muslo of tbe mountaineer. I hate to congratulate Professor Seebold on his happy adaptation of the airs of other countries to suit the weird instruments whloh he controls." We anticipate for the Swiss Company as cordial a r^ceptbn ' m Aahburton as was awarded to the Flsk , ■ Jubileu Bin«erß. They open at the Oddfellows' Hall on Monday evening next
