We were greatly strack with the beauty of the
two marble statnes in the center of the octagonal:
the one representing a boy wrapped in a fleecy
mantel, the latter so artfully narved as to resem
ble strikingly a real sheepskin; the other a girl
cherub extracting a thorn from the foot of a
four-footed pet, which looks up with eyes as
tzustingly innocent as her own. Who is the
scuptor we know no', but we are sure he has no
reason to conceal his name. We l,oked more
carefully at the pictures yesterday. which are on
exhibition in the second story of the octagonal,
and found a great deal to admire, and an equally
great deal to condemn as mediocre and unde

not be thought it is with the intention to class
them with the latter. Of the mediocre we shall

to be all mentioned in our limited space. The
interior of a m mnatie cloister, a small oil paint
ing, blenctag ,light and shadow in a
marvelous degree, struck no as Infi
nitely the mcst meritorious performanoe
on the walls. The eye seems to penetrate from
tLe vaulted chamber, in which two monks are at
their devotions, away into the innermost recesses
cf a !org range of pillars and niches, even to the
'" deep sacristy and altar's pale." Then there
was an admirable picture of the noble Hancock,
the man whom Robert E. Lee characterises as the
first one in power who has raised one corner of
tle sombre pall which hangs over the Southern
country. And there was the stern old sea dog
Fsrrafut. his lips compressed, and giving evidence
of his inflexiblexible and dauntless spirit. The por
trait of the illustrious Beauregard is a very fine
and lie-like one; and everybody who frequented
the uily Hotel ten or fitteen years ago
will recognize the genial face of John Hew
lett as ho looks kindly but seriously down
from the canvas. This picture is by Healy, and
an excellent one it is. There were also portraits
of Generals Lee and Andrew Jackson, of Calhoun,
Webster, Clay and others, but their merit is not
equal in point of art to those before mentioned.
There was a copy of Raphael's great cartoon re
presenting the Lord's Supper and the miracle of
th' Savior, which, though bold and free in the
conception, had not the depth and breadth of col
oring which care and experience ought to give. A
scene from the lowlands of the Mississippi, by P.
Claque, struck us as wonderflnly true to nature.
1 he mighty river is within its banks, vegetation is
flourishing luxuriantly, and there are barely
enough marks left of the devastations of the re
sistle a floods at high water, to remind us that no
skill or labor can make this fertile region a per
manent habitation for man. The fight between
two stallionsin an Indian encampment at thI bate
ol it e Rocky mountains, we have already spoken
of in terms of commendation. It is evidently the
wort of an artist who has spent years among the
savsge tribes of the far West, and bears every
evidence of rraisem'blance.
The picture of Messrs. Molse and Pearson, repre
senting the members of the Mbtairie Jockey Cub, I
is wonderful for the striking resemblance to those
gentlemen in form and face, copying even their
unconscious habitual attitudes. The grouping of
so many persons in so small a aspse, each figure
preserving its individuality and as recognizable
as life itself, is an evidence not only of artistic
skill but of genius.
We were attracted by copies of the ceilings of
famous Roman villas, and the other intricate
works of ancient and modern Italian masters,
made by our able and modest townsman, James
Ftieret, Esq. There is banging on the walls a pe
tute in ' paper cutting" representing a " Freed
man's Paradise." Two of the manhoods are die.
Leuanig politics and reclining lazily on the porch
f a log cabin, through the interstices of which
the rain and wind have free access to the interior,
whilst the ashbl housewife is vehemently scoldiug

books. The poultry are in the garden, the horses
are tied and forgotten in the midst of the grass
less yard, ard everywhe e s the image of equalor
and improvidence. This work is decorated with
a b:ue ribbon. In a gras case, up stairs, we saw
some China and porcelain ware, the plates and
,at:cers of which were admirably painted by " a
school girl of 15 years."
We cannot relrain Irom a passing compliment
to two worthy men who minister to the inner
wants of visitors-Mesars. iit l Waters and Max

Busfess at the Academy has been quite dull up
to last evening when the tide turned, and the
house was filled by the production of a burtesque
entitled the " Black and Tan Convention," the
best local hit which we have ever seen produced
upon the Academy stage. Jobshn B. Darivage,
Esq., the author, took a prominent character ta
the piece, amusetnly supported by Byman and the
other artists of the establishment. By a curious
coincidence, the real convention, now in session
at Mechanics' Institute, has just voted to bold
night sessions. It is safe to infer, from a glance
over the audience last evening that those esselon
will be held at the Academy. The right-hand
stagehbox was filled with delegates, whoappeared
to enjoy. as heartily as any, this travestie upon
their legislation, and scattered here and there
through the house were others who daily devote
themselves to their unwonted task of traming a
Constitution for Loulsiana.
The piece itself is remarkably true to the life,
and we propLesy for it a successful run, equal
almost to that of the "Tale of Enchantment."
