Little Carreno has created quite a sensation in the musical world. She bids fair to make a fine artist, if not overtasked at so young an age. Next Monday she will be nine years old, and her birthday will be celebrated by a grand concert at the Academy of Music, in which a large number of eminent artists will participate.
