JENNY BIND AT A HARVEST FESTIVAL. Jenny Lind (iuadame Geidschmidt) and her husband, M. Otto Goldschmiiit, have been taking a, prominent part in a harvest, festival held a few days ago at the village of Little Houghton, in Northamptonshire, the inhabitants of which place, t the poorer kind especially, were intensely gratified by hearing to perfection the sweet songstress.

Goldschmidt':— 1: Come, Christians, praise yowMaker's goodness-l Rejoice in Him and in His giftt To-day, before the Lord of Harvest, la happy; aongs your voices lift; For He who cared for us of yore Hath bless'd our fields and homes once more." The singing of the hymn completely took the con- gregation by surprise, as no one but the vicar was aware of Madame GoldschmSIt's intention; thus to honour the- festival. She had informecti him of her gracious, purpose just Before the ccmmence- ment of the. service, when she expressed a; wish to sing to the. poor people. When she began the congregation rose from their seats, and so re- mained till the close of the hymn, completely enraptured by the sweet melody which: filled the church.. At the after proceedings, which consisted of diraier, tea, and a dance, Madame Goldschmidt was present; and when the tents were lighted up, this lady, with several others, joinedl heartily in she dance, three hearty* sheers being given when the took her departure..
