HOCJBtC tlie c?toits that are being made to do good
work, w<> ?ue unable to fall into soob raptares aa, if
ono may take nil the published testimonials seriously,
would seem to have seized the entire literary and
artistic wot id on the contemplation of what nai
dono on this side tho water.
Wa believe ohroaMvlithogranhy to be a very In
gt'iiious and a possibly very useful ait. No doubt it
cheapens reproduction, and enable?, ponple to got
copies of pictures, the originals of which ate entirely
beyond their means, which, in BORN cases, aro na?
tional or princely property not to bo bought for any
money, atid only to bo seen w ith ?liili? ulty by BSaklng
extensive journeys and spending considerable money.
It has aiuipler BROS,too, Onabling men to illustrate
books requiring the use o? color delicately applied,
Witt, compaiativo cheapness, as for instan?.- in Owen
Jones's (?iammar of Ornament, and the Arcliite? 'tarai
Booka that are avow so ooaimoai in Europe. Hut the
value to litiiiinnity of all these arts of nsprods
depends, as anybody may see with ball an eye, on
the value of what is reproduced. Printing would
not be much of a boon to tho raco if all tba moil
could bo put to wero tho scattering broad*os

accomplished, in this country, looking at it as mere
Art, we do not carea bean?no. not even for tbat
Magdalena, as Mr. Prang trill call it, which ho fondles
with such an overflow of parental at.'cction. Not
that it is not n very respectable attempt, but be?
cause, whatever tba gnidi iy say, it is not a
great picture. n?>r worth the tumble it gave, 00 doubt
considerable, to reprodme it. Wo dare Bay it has
proved veiy taking: hut Mr. Prang must expend his
time and nnmi'V upon SOBSOtbiag moro intiiusicilly
valuable In-fore ho can make us share in his .-ntliu
aiasm for the art of cbroino-lith.iirraphy. Tbe differ.
On?3e between us ami the a.lniinrs of this met hunical
art consists simply in this, that wo look upon it as a
means while they consider it as an end; and \vh:!e
we aro forever insisting that nothing is admirable
but tho list, they have adopted Um sopbismthat
