THE MELODISTS' CLUB.
THE prizes given by this Club for the best Song and best Duet were awarded on Thursday. There were four competitors for each ; and it will be seen that the successful candidate, in both instances, was that engrosser of all musical prizes, Tom COOKE. The names of the other competitors were not announced; but the Bong No. I. was understood to be the composition of Mr. E. Tavt.on, and the Duet No. I. of Mr. PARRY. The voting was as follows.
No. I. "Despair," 2. "The Passion flower," 3. "The fairy caves,"
4. "Fair one, take this rose," Duets.
No. I. "Words are easy," 2. "How have I loved," 3. "Winter and Spring," 4. "Woman, war, and wine,"
