“ROSSINI’S MASS—POSTPONEMENT.

The promised performance of Rossini’s Mass, last night, at Steinway Hall, did not take place. A placard at the door announced that in consequence of the storm it had been postponed until further notice. This was unfortunate; for the rain cased before 8 o’clock, and there would probably have been a large attendance. We are informed that the Mass will be given next Saturday, as a matinee at the Academy of Music. Persons who bought seats for Sunday’s performance can have their money refunded or their tickets exchanged.”
