Anacreontic Society.
  This Society, which holds its private concerts weekly during the winter, gave its first Public Concert this season at the Rotunda, on Monday last. On this occasion a brilliant assemblage of beauty and fashion graced the concert-room. The band of amateurs (the best in the country) attended in full strength, and gave to the music an effect which would delight the most cultivated audience. His Grace the Duke of Leinster performed on the double-bass; Major Cobbe, violencello; Captain Speedy, principal clarinet. Symphony, by Alday, commenced the concert, equal to any of Hayden’s [sic]. The finale, of the first act of Il Don Giovanni, which received the most rapturous applause, concluded the concert.--Dublin Evening Express.
