MISS HAMILTON'S CONCERT.

''Twa hours at Hamc" was promised to those who should visit the City Hall last night, when Miss Clara Hamilton, assisted by a galaxy of local talent, gave a concert of Scottish music, and a large number of persons assembled for the enjoyment thereof. A programme had been selected teeming with moßt enjoyable pieces of Scottish melody, and in every case these were successfully given. Miss Hamilton herself possesses a clear mezzo-soprano voice, which lends itself with peculiar grace to the plaintive melody of Scottish song, and she at once secured the popularity and applause she so well merits. Mr Vallis distinguished himself during the evening as accompanist with great effect. The concerted singing by the little Company of four Was good, and bore evidence of careful practice. Mr jago's powers arc so well known that it is unnecessary to say that his numbers were admirably sung ; and Mr Jones's' Scots wha hao' was not the least enjoyable item on the programme. Dancing was contributed by Mr W. P. Stuart, Master Popham, and Master Willie Lowe, the sword dance of the latter being very good. Pipe - major M'Donald did the "skirling." Four diminutive members of the Iligbl and Rifles also went through the Reel o' Tulloch in light and precise style. Misa Wooldridge's singing of the old favorite ' Robin Adair' secured her a well-merited encore, and Mr R. Brown's reading of ' The Aggravatin' Riddle' caused great amusement. The general success of the entertainment was augmented in tho second part by the presence in the chair of the Rev. Dr Stuart, who had been unable to attend before owing to another engagement. It is with pleasure wc announce that another concert by the same company will be given on Thursday night; Mr Downio Stewart, M.H.R., in the chair.
