Washington, Oct. v, ivtso.
Those unacquainted with the arcana of
Washington social and official life can
hardly realize the importance of the re
cent order of the Secretary of War. The
order is in substance that all Army offi
cers who have been for four years on de
tached service must return to their regi
ments. Detached service is nominally
some light duty 44 Washington, in the
War Department, at Fort Monroe, or
as acting aids to a score of generals with
out commands in time of peace. In
other words detached duty is about the
lightest work, and .the most delightful
play that perfumed dogs (pups) of war
ever indulged in. For years and years
they have remained here in Washington
the admired and petted of the ladies of
the West End, the indulged to ruin of
tailors, resteraunters, and washerwomen.
The trumpet call of the Secretary of War
has fallen on their ears like the knell of
doom. To change their base from Penn
sylvania avenue to New Mexico or Idaho
is like banishment to Siberia. But the
wailing and consternation occasioned by
the Secretary's order is not confined to
the club rooms. , These young gentlemen
so long detached from legitimate military
service have made strong attachments
elsewhere, and the departure for the
frontier will leave a void in the social
world of Washington. The drawing
rooms and boudoirs of the West end will
blend in grief with ihe unpaid washer
women over the departure of these young
officers of the Army.
For awhile it was hoped that their
hitherto patent social and political influ
ence would avail them, and cause the
Secretary of War to relax his cruel order,
at least in special cases. Division and
department commanders argued that the
Secretary of War had signed the order
without giving it any personal considera
tion, and that therefore a simple request,
carrying both official and personal influ
ence for individual exceptions, would
have the desired effect. Laboring under
this impresssion Gen. Sheridan, Gen.
Sehofleld, Gen. Pope and Gen. Howard
all requested the Secretary of War to
make exceptions to the order in the cases
of their personal aids. They were mis
taken in the premises of their argument.
Secretary Endicot had been personally
considering the matter from the time he
became Secretary of War, and when the
time for issuing the order arrived he had
mastered all the details and was entirely
cognizant of what its effect would be.
Besides the attention of the President
had been called to the matter, and it had
met with his unqualified approval. The
protests and requests were alike unavail
ing, for the Secretary did not intend
backing down. He has set his foot down,
and yesterday refused to make an excep
tion m every one of the individual cases
brought to his attention.
As stated, the Secretary of War was
fully aware of the effect of the order, and
he knew just where it would strike, but
was firm in his purpose. He evidently
knew of the special duty abuse before he
took his seat in the Cabinet, and after
wards his experience as a lawyer led him
to make thorough investigation before
acting. He visited the headquarters of
various divisions and departments, saw
the officers whom the order would detach
from staff duty, and compared them with
the officers who were always with their
remmeuts, and could see at a clance the
difference between them. He saw that
staff duty too long continued had a de
moralizing effect in unfitting officers for
field duty and depriving them of all in
terest in their resiments. He held that
the staff was meant for the line, not the
line for the staff, and if Hue was to suffer
for the sake of making it pleasant for the
staff, the abuse should
Hence the order and his
to stick to it.
While the Secretary's order is heavily
felt in military and social circles here, it
must be approved by the country at
large, and by every officer who has the
instincts of a man and a soldier. The
favoritism that has kept so many social
pets in soft places in the East has had
a demoralizing influence upon the army.
The Macon, (Ga.), Telegi-aph recently
wrote of the idling tendencies of t he negro
that few do six days honest labor in the
week. Representative Manninc. of Miss
issippi, has also been speaking of the un
reliaibleness of negro labor, and his state
ments are almost a surprise. He says the
last census shows this that in Mississippi
nearly half of the cotton raised in the
State was grown without the aid of color
ed labor. He is reported as saying in the
New Orleans States:
"White men and white women and
children now go into the fields and work.
And with so much better results that cot
ton growers are becoming very much en
couraged in the thought that they are no
longer compelled to be dependent on such
an unreliable class of labor as the blacks.
A curious fact mentioned by Mr. Manning
in that connection is that comparing the
yield of cotton on ground worked bv the
whites, it is found that the ground worked
by the whites yields twenty-five per cent,
more than that worked by the negroes.
Of course the difference is that the whites
cultivate it more thoroughly."
Now these opinions are worth some
thing, for they are the opinions of South
ern men who have been reared among
negroes, know their habits, understand
their character, and have no unkind feel
ings for them. When a Northern man
undertakes to discuss the nogro in any of
his relations we are sure he will make a
botch of it, because he writes from im
perfect knowledge. The truth is, the
Northern politicians, editors and authors
know but little of the South or its people,
white or colored. The South is still
almost to them terra incognita. They
know almost as much of the north pole
as they do of negro character, life, habit?.
&c. They take their ideas from such
works as "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and Tour
gee's political and sectional novels, and
from the burnt-cork "gentry" who play
the negro on the boards of certain New
But is negro labor as unreliable in

aarkcy, under the changed order of things,
is as much of an idler as the town darkpv
then it Is not hard to understand why the
results in aussissippi are as described by
Mr. Manning. The tobacco factory is th'e
best school-house we have ever seen for
giving the negroes lessons in regularity

backs we are much inclined to stand by
negro labor. It is probably th h ua

When I and wifo went to New York,
last July, it was sofcly to attend the con
vention of "The Misic Teachers' National
Association:" and -ter that to attend to
various matters gi viag accession of strength
to our professional ind tutorial usefulness.
Of the many acts and utterances of courte
sy and kindness, iieaned upon us by the
very elite of the nusical profession, the
high consideration and warmly demonstra
tive friendship of fm. M. Thorns editor
and proprietor of lie "American Art Jour
nal ' were more intensely gratifying than
that of all the others combined. His jour
nal a weekly is jhe only vehicle of mu
sical news, criticis and trade reviews in
the piano line that circulates, as a recog
nized authority, imong all the higher
grades of the profession acd dilettanti, in
all the art cehtreiof Europe from this
country. With tbuj-trade" in this country,
his influence is potential, because he is su
perlatively intelligent, honorable, truthful
and fair in discrinination. He carries ad
vertisements -of all the reputable man n fac
tum's of pianos, steadfastly rejecting those
of the fraudulent dass, haying an intimate
cognrzance of the irorking details and bus
iness methods of erery firm in the country.
After the convention, impelled by a
desire to aid me, he gradually drew outa
confession of all the real details, of my
present homcfield, its inadequacy and my
fixed purpose for divers reasons of yet
remaining there indefinitely. Finding me
philosophically resigned and stoically im
movable, he eageriy proposed, for my adop
tion, several kinds of musical mercantile
projects, in which he could put me on the
inside track, and, by the fair profits, of
which, 1 could thicken my very thin tuto
rial income. I emphatically rejected each
in turn, because of my distaste and inapti
tude for mercantile work. Lastly, he sug
gested the sale of pianos : said he would
show me tli e very best make of the kind of
piano of the grade m general use and
demand by the substantial middle class of
people. (Meaning "the Llolmstrom''). And
also, the lately gotten up and only holiest
piano for the less affluent: and that he had
influence to have the prices made to me so
low that I would have a small, but legiti
mate margin of profit, at a cost to the pur
chaser, less than the average travelling
agent pays before adding his hundred per
cent; profit, by whit h process they are
made "high priced'.,
Inj brief, his earnest and kindly importu
nity overcame my reluctance; and he spent
much of his valuable time making me and
wife acquainted with the heads and au fait
in all the details of the two manufactories,
as well as taking me through the intemin
able, mountainous buildings, established
by Hale larger than all the combined
houses in Salisbury, I think, which fur
nishes pianos to the numerous bogus mak
ersmakers who do not make but "let ou"
like they do, and where everything is ta
ken from the piano that can be without
rendering it utterly worthless and unsalea
ble, even to the reriest novice in sue mat
ters. Holmstrom has the warmest regards and
boundless respect of every piano manufac
turer and artisan in Naw York: and that
he is intimately known to all is vouched
for fey the fact that he is the only manin
the city wao can draught a scale for pfario;
and any change of keyboard, in any firm,
is put in shape for the artisan, by his head
and hand. ' lie and his partner James
as well as the President of the Schubert
Company Duff are continuously working
among and snperviising their men. The
"Schubert" piano only one style is got
ten up by a company of first class artistic,
musical mechanics, to "meet a long felt
want" a thoroughly honest, cheap, three
striqged and overstrung piano, for those
who cannot afford to pay for the elaborate
carving and finish of the higher priced
ones, but its qualities, both in music and
Construction, are sterling aud enduring.
I do not will not "push" these pianos,
nor intermeddle with the operations of the
travelling venders: but when any of
these latter leave their track and collide
with me on mine, impugning my honor,
veracity and professional capacity, I mmt
defend them: I have a higher regard for
them than for money.
A lady has bought the only "Holmstrom"
I have yet brought here. The gentleman
who lives in Winchester, Va., and lives on
the profits accruing from an occasional
sale of a Knabe pia?io, went to that lady's
house, last week, to inspect (?) the piano,
and at once seated himself before it and
made his few peculiar and only passes at
its keyboard. Northing wrong in that,
but there was in his promptly uttered and
unsought opinion (?) that; "It has a pretty
good tone for a cheap piano," meaning an
inferior one, for be continued, "but no one
ought to buy a cheap piano." His next
shot wa, "but the tone is better than the
action: that is very bad:" and so he con
tinued to detract from every point, a very
reprehensible proceeding; for the lady be
ing now the Owner of the piano, the intent
of his gratuitous disparagement, voiced in
oracular tone, was simply to pain her. For
tunately, tne iadv has abundace of good
sense, by which she clearly read his mo
tives. So I might have treated this matter
with the silence of intense contempt ; but
it was really a declaration of war against
my judgment and the purses of thase who
are likely to need pianos.. His next remark,
"I never heard of Holmstrom," so toned as
to imply that tnat maker was nobody. The
lady spoke, "He rotist be well known, for
Mr. 1 horns commended him as the best."
But he buried Thorns also by a sententious
"I never heard of "Tiim either." The man
foolishly overreached himself in thus vol
untary uncovering his pitiable ignorance of
notanie factors in nis own line of business.
I give only one more remark, not because
of its impertinent assumntion. but as a
text to base a few suggestions on, of much
advantage to those who would, intelligent
ly, test a piano. He said : "I suppose Mrs.
Neave like all who have taught music for
years, has lost practice and can't play
much, and therefore was not able to test
tone and touch sufficiently." Having "sup
posed," he will doubtlessly as defamers
usually do soon assert invidiously. I must
here say, that no one, of real musical na
ture, who was early trained to read music
correctly andfiuadly, ever loses their prac
tice. For some, recent years, my wife's
abused eyesight and unsuitable glasses,
unfitted her to see music clearly by lamp
or gaslight, and. gave her much inconveni
ence even in daylight ; but after the work
of the oculist and opt ician in Philadelphia,
last June, done prior to our visiting New
York, her eyesight is better than it has
ever been ; and I have known but few that
read music so fluently, and execute so cor
rectly at sight as she can. fBut that sveh
a man should utter such an invidious sur
mise, and in such connection, capo the cli
max of stolid mendacity. A man who,
whatever fie was before he became an itin
erant vender of pianos was not, nor is,
any part or a musician. He can, it is true,
strike, awkward It. a few crude cords and
confessedly, a miserable failure as a piano
tuner, because his musical perceptions are
so obtuse as to make ic impossible for him
to work out the equal temperament of nn
octave, as the indispensible bearings to
tune the whole board from 1 With such au
ricular torpidity, and puerile manipulation,
it seems inconceivable that such a musical
cripple nonentity rather should hold so
sell-complacent an underestimate of musi
cal people as to prate authoritatively on
the tone and action qualities of pianos!
The Knabe-like many other reliable makes
of pianos stands cn along established and
well merited reputation : and people select
from taste, memories of the pastt &c, and
I would not, never do say aught against
them, even when my opinion is sought.
We will now examine his idea that much
finger gymnastics is indispensible to a cor
rect judgment of a piano. The mere play
er can only judge of tone and touch : to ob
tain a correct appreciation of tone, rapid
playing is unnecded and may be made det
rimental : Moreover, the listener can judge
fully of the many distinctive attributes of
tone, such as the sympathetic, the sing
ing, the carrying and other powers, which
the mere acquirements in techniqe give
little or no cognition of. Touch or action
can only be tested by the player : but, while
rapid, clear-cut execution is requisite to
the judgment of some points, it hinders
cognizance in others. The best action for
touch, to the great mass of players is neith
er to resistant nor too yielding too stiff
nor too pliant or soft.
Again, touch is more arbitrary than tone,
and the indexes to what is right for gen
eral use are more clearly marked. A fan
cy for a particnlar touch is often begotten
O ignorance and conceit. The love ofjone
style and condemnation of ell ethers is,
very often, but a partiality for what the
player has been accustomed to. rather the
result of unbiased, intelligent judgment.
A good touch for general use, is readily
discerned, and I will give a few Qf the
main indexes : The blow should be power
ful, light, firm and smooth, not slipping
away from under the fingers, but enabling
you to retain and control it throughout.
The repeat should be rapid and sure, com
bined with a perfect check. The action
should be neither deep nor shallow : in the
former rapid execution is hindered, in the
latter the power of the blow is injured.
After testing the notes singly, press down
several at the same time: if there are faults
in the action, this test bring them vividly
out. Very respectfully,
W. H. Neave.
