Hutchinson Family Singers challenged

The remnants of the Hutchinson Family, announce a Concert in this city, on Tuesday evening. They have very much lessened their hold on public favor – as much, perhaps, by their want of the artistic skill which an improved public taste requires, as by their attempts to give a political direction to their art.  Their participation in the late fanatical Convention held at Worcester, Mass., for the purpose of bringing about a dissolution of the Union, is calculated to create in the public mind a contempt which would probably break out into an open demonstration of indignant feeling, if their influence was sufficient to warrant any fear of the success of their principles. – Newark Daily Advertiser.
