THE PAYNE FAMILY.
There was a large attendanoe at the Choral Hall last evening, when the Payne family gave their second concert. An entire change of programme was provided, but so many of the selections were encored that the company delighted their hearers by repeating some of the items that met with most appreciation on the previous evening. The anthem 'He shall feed his flock' was the opening piece, and being nicely sung by the company, it was heartily encored, ' The bellß' b?ing given in response. Miss Lizzie Payne sang 'Theold folks at home' very sweetly, and on being enthusiastically recalled gave ' Barney O'Hea'with much archness Great amusemont was aroused by the humorous part song 'The midnight serenade,' in which Mr R. Steele was particularly funny; while nearly as good an effect attended the singing by the same gentleman and Miss Lizzie Payne of Parry's comic duet 'A Bo.' Miss Nellie Payne gave a really artistic rendering of the song 'Sweet violets,'while Misa Payne gained a well-deserved encore for a sympatnotio rendering of ' Home, sweet home' as a violin folo, substituting an exceedingly clover interpretation of 'The mooking bird. During the evening Mr Payne intimated that the closing evening conoert of the series would be tonight's, but that in response to a general request a matinee would be given on Saturday, to which families and children will be admitted at a very reasonable charge.
