ARGYLL ROOMS.—Mr. HAWES had his Benefit Concert at these Rooms on Thursday night. Madame PASTA executed a duet with DEBEGNIS [sic], and gave an air sola with all that brilliancy of execution and purity of taste which so eminently distinguish her. Misses PATON and STEPHENS, with Madame VESTRIS, also lent their powerful assistance. Messrs KNYVETT, BELLAMY, TERRAIL, ATKINSON, &c. also contributed to the harmony of the evening. The room was crowded, and the company separated at a late (or rather early) hour, highly delighted with the masical [sic] treat which had been afforded them.
