NEW YORK, December, 1864. The
Piano Fortes, Grand, Square, and Upright, manufactured by Messrs. Steinway &
Sons, have established for themselves so world wide a reputation that it is
hardly possible for us to add any thing to their just fame. Having thoroughly
tested and tried these instruments personally for years, both in public and
private, it becomes our pleasant duty to express our candid opinion regarding
their unquestioned superiority over any other piano known to us. Among the chief
points of their uniform excellence are : Greatest possible depth, richness, and
volume of tone, combined with a rare brilliancy, clearness, and perfect evenness
throughout the entire scale, and above all a surprising duration of sound, the
pure and sympathetic quality of which never changes under the most delicate or
powerful touch. This peculiarity is found exclusively in the Steinway Piano, and
together with the matchless precision, elasticity, and promptness of action
always characterizing these instruments, as well as their unequaled durability
under the severest trials, is truly surprising, and claims at once the
admiration of every artist. We, therefore, consider the " Steinway" Pianos in
all respects by far the best instruments made in this country or Europe, use
them solely and exclusively ourselves, in public or private, and recommend them
invariably to our friends and the public. .
We hove at different times
expressed our opinion regarding the pianos of various makers, but freely and
unhesitatingly pronounce Messrs. Steinway & Sons' Pianos, both grand and square,
incomparably superior to them all.

This Hotel, situated at NASSAU,
NEW PROVIDENCE, BAHAMAS, was built by the Colonial Government, and is a handsome
three-story building, erected on an elevation a few minutes' walk from the
shore, and commanding a fine view of the ocean, harbor, and town of Nassau.
Surrounding the Hotel is a piazza
ten feet wide, from which the inmates can at all times enjoy the gentle,
cooling, easterly trade winds. INVALIDS unable to bear much fatigue will have a
promenade extending one thousand feet, without leaving the building. All of the
TROPICAL FRUITS grow in great abundance, and are in season the entire winter.
But little rain falls from the
month of October to the first of June. THIS IS CONSIDERED THE PECULIAR SEASON
FOR INVALIDS, though they can reside the entire year with comfort and safety.
The roads are macadamized, and kept in good order. A most BEAUTIFUL DRIVE
extends for twelve miles along the sea shore. In fact, every thing combines to
make it a pleasant home for the robust as well as for the invalid.
The Lessee of the Hotel has
recently secured the services of Mr. James Carroll, late of the " NEW YORK
HOTEL," who will have the entire superintendence, and is determined to do all in
his power to minister to the wants and comforts of his guests.
The CULINARY and other
departments shall be well supplied, the cooks the hest obtainable, and the
servants attentive and unobtrusive.
