Gilmore's Musical Enterprise. The three concerts given at the Music Hall on Saturday afternoon and evening and Sunday evening, under Mr. Gilmore's auspices and direction, were largely successful, and furnished varied and attractive entertainments for crowded audiences. Mr. Gilmore faithfully fulfilled the letter and spirit of his design and promise both in the matter and performance, and three successive musical occasions of such magnitude and interest have rarely been more fortunately conceived and carried out.

Mr. Gilmore is doing a good work; and independent of his keen appreciation of the desire of the public in engaging such superior talent as Madame Bishop and the little wonder, Teresa Carreño, by the aid of the large and effective orchestra that he has gathered about him, is popularizing much good instrumental music to the ear and apprehension of the masses.
