The opera season in Brooklyn has, so far, boon entirely successful, and ha. given the utmost nleaaure to thousands of our most cultivated citizens. It is, therefore, with a feeling of keen regrot that they will learn that, with the performance or "Los Hugue nots," Meyerbaar'a masterpiece, on Thursday evening, tho sea.on of opera for 1881 will end. A sooonu aoasou will probably bogiu in Maroh, but, for many weeks to come, Brooklyn must be content to do without its fa vorite entertainment.

To those whose good fortune it was to lis ten to tbo second concert of the riiilharmouio Socloty at the Academy last evening and thoy wero many, the house being crowded a moat delightful aud, In every way, thoroughly onjoyable performance . was vouchsafed. The programme has so recently been considered in detail in this column that othor than a reforonce to lta beauties is uncallod for at this writing. No more complete and pleasurablo porformance of the "Ilhenieb Symphony" of Schumann, the first number of the selection, could be asked, marked ai It waa by all tha grace aud finish which is characteristic of the Inenmnarable orchestra of the .oclety. Tho .cenes from Gluck's "Alceste," In which Signor Oalassl, MIsssb Schell and Winant and the Philharmonic cho. ms took part, introduced tho latter most happily to a concert audience for tbe first time this Reason. Its performance showed marked Improvement over the rehearsal of tbe prevloui aftornoon, precision of attack having given place to the aomewhat nervous hesitancy of tho forinor occasion, and the niolo volcoi having been roiulorced In number, the parts were tnoro evenly balanced. Both In this number and the intensely trying festival music of the "(juoen of Sheba" selection, which concluded the ooncert, the chorus commended Itself to critical appreciation. Signor Ga iassl's noble voice was heard to excellent ad vantage in the aria, " Die Frist latj um, from Wagner's " Flying Dutchman," which he delivered with a vigor and spirit which awakened the utmost enthusiasm. The gem of the concert, however, after the delioious string Quartet of Beethoven, to which we have before alluded, and which was delightfully played by the oroheitra, was tho "Btatrlce and Benedick" duo of Berlioz, tflven by Ml.s Bcholl and Miss Win.nt.wlth a giaoe of expression and delicacy of nbraslnit. calling for the warmest commendation. The audience was as appreciative as It was large, Mr, Thomas was in hi. bappkat mood, and la.t night's eon'cert will long be remembered as one of tho most notable In the history ot the Fhllhannonlo Society. An Imposinir Cliurcli Choir It will be remembered that when the vacation season lu tho churches eame round Mr. A. 0.

Does tke Elevated Railroad Srstem UXoct the Gone? T sior or the Brooklyn Ewlo: Wl 1 mi 1 . . .... l : " P.yi'f8 speaic of rapid transit it seems ,rvoblecttonahr h('r systems exist but the two Lro'okti OlS. light, ohstruoting tne street and tnlunna i nnni mill hv nrnnratlon whini, ."v"nu! a" property, as amo'numeitof inJustlceVod - p,XP - ho00?ber la the murderous surf ace road ot AtlaX avenue which like Mike Flnnegan calling bis gi J t "hSui h signs over wooden steps informing tho publlo thai thu 1. a "rapia irauait aianou. But there are othor means of affording rapid tranBl elsewhere employed to tbe satisfaction of all. I refer to tho underground road, so Bucoe8$ini ia London, and what may bo called the "'cross block" roads' in London and Philadelphia. Both are unobjectionable to moat people, ana a comuinauou w mo mu uum JUBt suit tho topograpny OS rooaijr. j.uv uuuw ground neods no doseription. The "cross blook" has lonn boon in uso In London. I rode on ono In 1856 from tho East India docks to Fenchurch elroet, if iTomem - ar right. It ran ovor houses, between uousos, mrougn hmiRAn and nrnftBlti!? atroftta on arches, but never going along a stroet. A more recont ono, that from Charing Cross to London Bridge, I rodo on in 1865. It is built on the same prlnolpie, supported on substantial ma - Bonry and provided with a gravel road bed,' thus avoiding noise. Were it not for tbe chimneys of houses you would tulnK you wero on a sun boo roau. This system, I think, is still bettor adapted tothe regular square blocks of American cities than to the Irregular stroets of London. In Brooklyn, for in - etance, aftor tunnelling undor the high ground near the river, instead of defacing Myrtlo or Fulton avonue with homely hardware, would It not be better lo build the road in the middle of the blook next to either sldo of the avenues, simply spanning too oross streets 1 This would supply rapid transit. Evory ono will admit that a railroad forty feet from one's rear windows Is les. objoctionoblo than one wlj.htu aim's length of tha front. Then there would bo o ercuuo for building stations ou the strcots, liko those on the Socond avenue road between Division and Third streets. Thoro would be 110 obstruction of thoroughfares; no obscuring of lieht: do dronplDff of aBhes. crease, bolts, etc., on pass ers by; no miles ot empty cars standing over tbe street, etc., etc. Thoro is, however, a great objection, 1 admit. 11 is that the companies would havo to pay for tho right of wav. This is precisely what I had in mind when 1 said that such roads would bo unobjectionable to most peo ple. It Is much cheaper to stoal k watch tuan to ouy one; much cheaper as railroad mon kuow to Bteal a highway or a street man to pay lor private proporty. In the counties of Now York aud' Rings some of tbeso men bave bad their choice, and we all know wbft It has been. Lot thom now be oompelled to pay for the watoh or da without It, and you will see that they will pay here as they have done elsewhere. The waterod oapltal of the Now York "LV roads would have beeu twice more than onough to build an honest road, and a permanent one, while it la neither the one nor the other. A Taxpaveh. Has Property on Stxtb Avenue, New Torb, Increnacd lu Value To the Editor of tht Brooklyn Eagle : If the benefits derived from tho elevated roads In New York outweigh tbo damage they came, it does not follow that It would bs bo In Brooklyn, Tho cases ara wholly dissimilar. One of the counsel for the roads hero, tn his argument before tho Mayor, la reported as saying tbat the value of property on tha Sixth and Third avenues ia New York, had advancod nine millions by rapid transit. If this is true it is only a part of the wholo truth and ia misleading, and if so intended is oreditable to the astuteness and professional shrewdnosB of the ablo counsel iu behalf of hie clients. What are tho facts ? We Ond that at the genesis of the elevated roads in Now York, the stagnation or business and depression of prices owing to the monoy panio wero BncU that the vacant Btoree, even ou Broadway, could be counted by tbo hundred. Yi'o bad reached bottom prices for everything. Since thot gloomy timo tho marvelous volume oi prosperous uuBiness tnat uas followed tho bard timeB, ha. carried up valuos generally, norhans. to tbo othor extreme. Tbo proportion of this" advance in values fairly applicable to tbo property oa tbe Third and tjiitti avouuoa is immensely in uxoob. of this estimated ulue millions. The robots from tho truo advance of value is tho amount of dam - ago to the abutting property ou those aveuuee and reduces the veal Increase In value to the nine millions, which 1b no doubt au overestimate, Again, tbo samo counsel says : "The interest of tbe publlo at large should not yield to tbat of the few."' Now, the owners and occupauts of property on Fulton street, Myrtle avenuo and other streetB, opposed to these roads running iu front of and depreciating tha value of mllea of Btores, dwellings, churches, etc, are not few In number, and to theso 1 am Bur. can be added a good, many l, - 8 who mm lorego any prooooi, par. - - oonvouioaC8 or benefit ratherjhfta b f a80I.y to the financial ruin of 6ny io'.'. - w citizen. To call this multitude of per sons a few is to throw into confusion all our idoas of numbers. Ownors of property should not relax their opposition in tho vain expectation of obtaining damages, unless guaranteed by the city, as proposed by tbe E.uile. If damages could be secured, thoy would necessarily bs partial. A proximate estimate might bo msde of a store in - ulton street for inBtanoe, of the immediato depreciation of value by the erection of tbe road In its front ; but (hat danisge vyotild not compare ia matfni - tjja with that of tbe falling off of trada and annual profits year after year Indefinitely. Ari3 finally, the scheme of running a highway through Brooklyn to Coney Island for the benefit of Nesr York, fairly interpreted, Is a plan to Injure tha fair name of our olty, to crush its retail trade, and to mako jubilant the proporty owners and the store keepers on Broadway, In New York. It ought to be resented as treating Brooklyn contemptuously, in fact, aa thn more scullery of tbe great metropolis. We aro having quits too much of this. Tho measure finds favor with a junta of atook speculatora in collusion with bribed ofUolals. It is dishonest, scandalous and corrupt to tha core. Clean Hamds. WIIO SnAliL BE 8 - PERIMTE - DBST OF SIMOOM I To the Editor of the Brooklyn Eagle : Brooklyn, as a leading city, has fostered and matured a system of freo schools fully cqna! to any othor. Tho instructors employed in our great system of schools are, in many inatanooa, eminent iu their oalllng, aud tho election of any one of I hem to the super - lntenuonoy would insure a proper administration of tbo offoirB and responsibilities of that moat important office. From so extond.d an educational field It would be .unwise to Bend to one smaller and mora limited for a - superintendent. Iu St. Louis, Chicago, Buffalo, Washington, Baltimore and Now York City the chief auporlntendent and his assistanta are selected from among principals of schools who havo beeu tried and not found wanting aa progressive educators. To prouioto tho welfare or ilia soboolB, the most eligible of the available candldatea should bo"eleoted for the highest offi.o in the department of instruction, without regard to pollticul or religious afllltationfl. If one of the highest purposes of true education ia to unite and qualify the peoplo for usefulness to each other, it is certainly an humanitarian Interest no faction should dominate or oontrol.

PLYMOUTH PKAYEK MEETING. Dir.

Tho widow's two mites went down faintly, and no j ona thought anything about it, I beg pardon, Bald Mr Beochor, since Ono did Jesus, He was a groat ooaeiyor, In that reBpect Socrates bore aome resemblance to mm.' . .

If all the rich men wero put together, thera was not so much of tho spirit of giving as In this lonr ,v poor widow. Thoy gavo of tholr abundanoe, aha ot bar nonury, oven all that she had, and probably wont fart - ing tbo rest of the day. Tbo relation of twomltas to. . - . her property was larger than tho relation of all'the r!".. - .. men gave to theirs. There ;are few men dt r whose charity It oan be said that it bears any proper relation to their power.

Yot hovr often do thoy get tired of doing even tba llttlo whlc thoy do. Many persons who are best qualified to do tho work of God don't do anything. I have known Bonis mou make a divine art of giving. A man In Bos - ton whom I knew resolved that when bis fortune reschod a certain point be would give everything no mado during tbe rest of bis Ufa to charity, and ho did. How many persona with largo incomes buy off, lost by oontinually wearying thay should be luduood to givo more. How little goes out in expression or genuine charity.
