Excerpt: ... up with those who can learn, but let trifling things take np their time and attention to the exclusion of music; and this includes the children of the rich, who lean upon "pa's money " instead of their own personal endeavors.--editor. Bickering.--We do not wish to appear hypercritical, but it seems to us that the majority of amateur musicians waste too much valuable time in useless discussions, wrangles, and foolish bickerings.
