The sixth and last Philharmonic concert was given jni-1 night at the Academy of Music. The attendance was ."'mall, notwithstanding the many teat urea of the bill, the cause undoubtedly being the superior attrac tions of tho symphony concert given at the sumo tunc at Steinway Hull. The concert commenced with the Symphony, So. 4, in B llat m^Jor, pro nounced by many to tie, In point of fornti the most finished of the Immortal nine of Beethoven. Mr. Oeorge Malzlta conducted, and cer tainly the performance was a vast improvement ou tho playing of the orchestra on previous occasions, during the last two seasons. Decision, firmness, unanimity and intelligent reading were evinced. The lovoly a laqio that ushers lu tho symphony was breathed forth, so to speak, and naught of Its ethereal beauty marred. The alltgro rioact, into which tho in troduction seemed to glido imperceptibly, was also rendered with a thorough appreciation or tho com poi-er's ideas. Tho allrgro tn'rucs of tho third move ment, so graceful nod si*rkliug, ami the inimitable finale, with its Impetuous phrares that follow each other In rupid succession, flashing like tune meteors, biht none of tlieir charms at the hauds of the orchestra Mr 8. B. Mill* then played Chopin's concerto tor piano, in E minor, opus 11, with orchestral accompani ment. Mr. Mills has earned long since, by his uuiiring industry In this most itiillcult fled of piuno music, the reputation of being nu accomplished Interpreter of Chopm s works. t)n this occasion he tairly surpassed all pro. vious successes tit concert, lie brought to the work tho highest qualities of neat, finished oxeculion, by which every phrase was, as it wore, photographed with the utmost distinctness, oach nolo receiving its due value, as ll on it individually depended tho suo coss or the Interpretation The touch of the pianist was of the emotional kind that Scums to draw from llio keys every phase of expression, and, united to artistic fooling, is calculated to convey the poetic thoughts ul Chopin in all their native loveliness. The concerto Is exceedingly long, e.-i>ooiully the first movement, allegro mattloto, which Iv therefore rarely given in the concert Itsll. Tho extreme length of this movement detracts much from Its merit, repeti tious being frequent and 10 some extent unnecessary. Tho romance, larghetto^ that succeeds is a charm ing specimen or tone painting, and dcmauds an inter pretation delicate to tho utmost degree. The delicacy of the movement cannot l*> adequately described un less we use the words of a Berlioz devotee when speak ing of Queen Mat) in tho "Romeo and Juliet" sym phony "The confessions or roses, the complaints of violets, are noisy In comparison." The same may be said of the roiuto that concludes the concerto, ns the greater number of Its phrases are of like filmy texture. Tho passages In the romfo which accompany tho quartet of united strings were uiar veilously playod. Tho eil'oct was somewhat similar to the rotx celeste stop on the organ. Much an olfcet has seldom if ever heeii produced from n grand piano !?? fore Mr. Mills also phiyed l.lsxfs "Hungarian Rhap sody " a work which he has already Introduced to the public with success Tho orchestra gave tho new overture or the Russian com poser, Tschalkovsky, and Mendelssohn's overture, ??A Calm Sea and Happy Voyage." The Russian work, the introduction to an opora founded on the subject of "Romeo and Juliet" (the most fruitful theme for com posers), is more eccentric and fragmentary than j artistic. There are beautiful thoughts ill It, choice themes, but tho general construction of the work is not In accordance with the canons of true tasto. Men deist-olio's grand overture closed tho concert. THEODORE THOMAtt' LAST SYMPHONY CONCERT. Stciuwav Hall presented a brilliant sight last even ing. It was crowded to Its utmost eapaelty, and it would seem as If a very fashionable evout was In progress. Tho occasion was one ol unusual musical In terest, tho close of tho symphony concert season of a conductor who has futrly turned the esteem and gratitude j of the American public by his earnest endeavors In tho ^ causo of the highest standard of music. To Theodore | Thomas we uro Indebted for the production of the ; grandest works in musical literature. His career lias I beeu one of unflagging industry, uoblo amb'tion and 1 triumphs lu his profession that rarely fall to the lot or a ; musical director. The ninth season ol symphony cou- ! certs which closed last evening has shown prugross, not withstanding the brilliant record of its predecessors. Notw ithstanding the utter paralysation of the business world during the past season the Unauclal result or Mr. Thomas' concerts has been more salisluctory than cvor beluro. When other entertainments languished for want of patronage his orchestra always found before thciu crowded houses, l.ast evening was quite a triumph lor this incomparable band of virtuogi. The programme was composed of the following works ?? Overture, Leonore, No. Beethoven; variations (theme by Uavdn), op. 60, Brahms; spiuning chorus and ballade (second act or Phantom Ship), Wagner, j Miss Litm Pfeil, Miss K. I,. Harrison and teinale chorus; symphony in No. U landaiilo allegro ma mm troppo, ! andante con (nolo, scherzo allegro \i\ace, finale ullegro i vivace), Hchuberu i 11 represented a quartette of composers that typify the most interesting schools of music. 1 ho third and perhaps best or tho lour overtures to "Fidclio," w,.s | played with that wonderful breadth of purer. In tensity of expression and street that could only bo ex- | peeled I rout fbomas' orchestra. HraUlus variations lu the Haydn melody are characterized by all the luxu riance of style lor which Johannes Kruhms Is rcmurk- j aide and yet in no xviso is ihe charming simplicity of 'the original injured. The principal leu- j lure however, as a novelty wan tho Spiutivrchor from Wagner's opera, which Is known as "Dor Kliegorde Hoi- ' lander," "l.'nllaiideso Danuato" and "Phantom Ship" j The spinning chorus ts consuleied llau geiu of the | opera and the maimer in which it was rendered wus an incontestable proor of the excellent training ol the twenty ladies who took pari in it. Scuta's ballad, in which she recounts the history of tho Flying Dutch man has a very singular melody of decidedly Seandi- ] navian origin. Miss l'fcll snug It admirably and al- I though her voice may not lie of a sufficiently heavy call ore lor such a dramatic scouo, yet tho i purity of Its tone, tho finish of her stylo j of singing aud her intelligent phrasing , uinl passionate expression, compensated lor l much ot tue weakness that youth and Inexperience in public aingiug must be subject to. The glorious Schubert | symphony wus rendered with rure skill bv the orches tra Th? y seemed to bo quite rn ravpuri with tho work. The absence of Theodore Thomas and his band from New York during the coming summer will be lorelv toll. The appreciative public of the metropolis nave been so long accustomed to those dehghllul sum mer concerts ol Thomas that there will bo touud it pal pable blank iu our musical entertainments during the dog days.

A number of the members of tho American RlQo As sociation who had been entored to shoot for tho Geiger trophy contested it yesterday at Crocdraoor in the prisonce of various gentlemen interested in such mat ters. The area devoted to the purposes of marksman ship was gay with Its usual display of flags, and all the fences and houses upon It looked particularly bright and cheerful in new coats of paint. Evidences of improve ment in tho accommodations trad beauties of tho place are visible at various points on the grounds, and seem to indicate that an interesting and active season for shooters is at hand, aud its advent is being provhlea lor. In ono portion of tho park a party oflhe Seventh regiment was practising at short range yesterday, tho prize for successful .marksmanship being a trophy known in the technique of Remington manipulators as "shells." The great point of interest, however, was the long range ecction, whoro at distances of 1,000, 900 aud 800 yards veterans of tbo rifle, such as Yale and Fulton, contested for tbo Geiger trophy. Hero tho greatest attention was paid to the scores, und Judge (411 dersleevo aud a number of friends stood by discussing the merits of the contestants and noting every marked Instance of success. Although the day was warm and cheerful, there was, unlortuuatoly, a strong wind blowing, and this tended to greatly embarrass the marksmen, as it caused a divergence In tho balls from their direct lino of propulsion. The match was, how ever, continued late iu tho afternoon before the result could be determined. * 4 T1IK SCORE. I. XI IIALI.AH1L Tnrdx WO.... boo.... Totals.
