- "David Glasgow Farragut, the first admiral of the Uni

KnoxvillCj East Tonnesscoj on the 5th day of July, A D.

'"The Oougross of tho United States of America, by a
ioint resolution, unproved Api-il 16th, 1872. instructed the
comriiittoe of tho Seuato and House of Representatives I
on public buildings and grounds to inspect ail sucu. mod- J
els for a colossal statue of tho late Admiral Farragut as i
might bo presented to them, ana to select irom sucu
models tho ono that should, in their judgment, be the
iucvii faithful likeness in form and feature, and tho most
appropriate to commemorate the deeds and character of
ihn Raid admiral. Many skillful artists competed for the
- honor of lttakinc this statue, and the committee were un
able to, aurce. Congress, therefore extended tho time
which had been sot for the selection, but the committee
were still unable to agree. Congress, therefore, by a
ioint resolution approved July 22d, 18T4, authorized tho
fw.w.t.rv'of tho Navv to contract; with some suitable and
skillful sculptor for a bronze statue of Admiral .Farragut,
as authorised in joint resolution of April 16th, 1872, and .
provided that tho selection of the sculptor should be t
made by the Secretary of the Navy, the General of the ;
Army and the widow of Admiral Farragut.
' "These commissioners, so appointed, selected as the:
artist Vinnie Eeam, of Washington, D. 0. Her model of ;
Admiral Farragut, in plaster, was completed A. D. lSvSO, i
and by direction of Hon. Hicbard TV. Thompson, the j
present Secretary of the Navy was delivered at the ;
United States Navy Yard, at Washington, I). C, Com- j
modore tfohn C. Pebiger commanding, to be roproduccd I
m bronze, unaer uie supervision oi w miam xx, oiiock,
engineer in chief U. S. Navy. By his order the metal
made use of for the purpose, was the bronze propeller of
Farragut's flagship, tho Hartford, in which the Admiral
achieved his most signal victories. The bronze which im
pelled his victorious ship now presents his image to pos
terity. The work of Casting in bronze was done under
the direction of Chief Engineer Wm. 15. Brooks, the su- ?
perintendent being Samuel Gelston, and required nine j
months' time for completion. ' j
A copy of the Army and Navy Register aud a small i
model, in bronze, of the propeller of the Hartford were
also placed in the copper box. The statue has received J
the oversight of Mrs. Farragut and many of the near ;
friends and associates of the great admiral, throughout its j
progress, and all express much satisfaction with the re-
' Suit, bbth in likeness and design. The ceremonies of un-,
veiling the statue will undoubtedly be of much innterest j
and will be largely attended. A letter was received yes- j
terday by Mrs. Hoxic from the Secretary of " the Farra-
. gut Association," composed of the officers, sailors, firemen
and marines of Farragut's squadron, asking information i
as to the time of the dedication, in order that the associa-1
tion, which is widely scattered throughout the country,
could make arrangements to be' present.
