Art Matters—"The Hiding of Moses in the
were permitted a few asro to wit
ness a new picture by J. Iiwco Williams,
called "Tbe Hiding of Mosal in th. Bul
rushes," which, although not yet finished,
promises to excel any former effort of this
artist. The originality of the conception,
boldness of design, and the cleverness of the
execution, each, in their way, deserve special
mention, ana it the work, when completed,
hut fulfils its present promise it will make
for the artist an enviable reputation, which
will live whtlo his picture last, although he
should never paint again.
11 is quite largo ana represents the boy
Moses asleep in a basket which is lying on
the brink of the Nile, while Miriam standing
erect with her left hand shading her eyes, is
peering through the tall flags and bulrushes
into me uisiance, as 11 on me watcn ana
ready to give the alarm should any one ap
proach, un ine rignt ine motner is Kneeling
in such a manner that the babe is thrown
entirely in the shadow of her figure; her left
nana grasping tne basket, ner race turned
over her left shoulder as if an approaching
footstep had been heard, and Bhe was en
deavoring to discover tbe source of the
sound, which, striking her quick, maternal
ear, had aroused her rrom the duty of con
cealing to .that or protection. .
In the background may be seen a tall mon
ument, surmounted by a sphynx-like figure,
wntcn iooKsasit it might oe propounding
to Edipus life's unsolved riddle, while the
grand and massive architecture of a city
arises in the distance and suggests nil the
magnificence, and splendor, and luxury,
which we are taught to believe were to be
found in the city of the Pharaohs. The time
is sunrise, ana over the entire scene the rosy
light ot tne Dawning day talis sott ana sweetly
as if 'twere lighted oy Aurora's smile, while
she, gnzing from the east, witnessed the ma
ternal trust that could thus submit a child
to the care of the Fates, and saw, in the dark
vista of the future, the renown of the now
The drawing of the child Moses, who is
seen at full length, is very well done, and the
entire expression of the figure is one of that
calm repose which ever attends a sweet and
healthful sleep. His dimpled hands and
limbs, so fair and plump, are baby-like, and
yet symmetrical and round, and on his face
a semi-smile is pictured like that which
mothers often note upon their darling's face
while it familinr converse with its euardian
The face of Miriam, who is represented as
half a woman half a child, whose maidenhood,
still new and uncontamiuatcd, combines that
modesty and gentleness which ever consti
tute the invincible charm of her sex, seems
somewhat too old lor the Bize of her hgure,
but its expression is exquisite. Fear is de
picted in every line, apprehension looks out
from her veiled eyes, while her hand, put
back as it to smold the halt-abanaonea babe,
shows how the fear would change to courage
did danger but approach.
The figure and face of tho mother are ex
cellent. The knee on which her body rests
is bare and beautiful ; the arm, outstretched
to protect her offspring, is delicate yet firm
ana round: the bust matronly; the neck
finely turned, and the head admirably shaped
and gracefully get upon the shoulders. The
lace, which betrays 'Jie anxiety that must
accompany such an act as she is performing,
is full of firmness mingled with maternal
tenderness, ana yet Dienas alarm wun tne
determination to defend and protect. The
eye is both tender and ardent, and the
mouth, delicious with humidity, looks as if
it were diBtillinar a nectar that would tempt
the kisses of the gods, while at the same
time it expresses that nxeuness ot purpose
which prompted the desperate method the
mother took to preserve the life of her child.
such mother wowd abandon ner bane
to the poisonous fangs of the reptiles of the
Nile rather than see it slaughtered before
her eyes; she would trust that God, whom
Pharaoh hated, and be herself indirectly re
sponsible for the death of the child to which
the had given birth, rather than see it merci
lessly torn kvem her avms Dy tbe myrmulous
of a King site despised. ' '
The dranerv about the different figures is-
managed very well, and the chiaru-oscuri
admirably. Indeed, tho istribution of the
light and shade is exquisite; for it shows to
the best possible advantage the intent of the
artist, and pieseits to the eye an effect which
is both remarkable ana pleasing.
The background, distances, sky, foliage
and arcbiteetne, each, in their way, have re
ceived a fhto share of attention from the
artist- and combine to add to the general'
agreeable effect and tone of the picture. The
figures seen to live and breathe, ana tbe
imagination would readily Btiggest that they
were inhabited br beautiful souls. The
painting has some faults, one of which is a
eemtosi slioBess in the movement 01 tne
figures: bnt it is altogether, we repeat, a pio-
. . 1 1. ... 1 1 .... 5 1 ..ici.
lure wiiivu 11, wuen uuiuuiumsu, il juiuis ius
present promise, will add materially to tbe
reputation 01 tne painter.
Singular Insult to a Morbidly Sensitive
Judge—Peculiar Effect of Political Prejudice.
A certain ex-Judge, who resides in the
western part of the city, and who is famous
for the active part he takes in politics, was
very rudely insulted, a tew days ago, in a
manner which was both singular and sur
prising. - He had been selected as a delegate
to the Chicago Convention, and was pre
disposed, as is welt known by his constit
uents, in favor of Mr. Chase, who is his
personal lnend, . ana in whose bcnait be
labored both earnestly and with vigor.
. Boon as Lincoln had been nominated, our
judicial dolegate discovered that the Repub
lican party hod selected a person for what
they choose to terra their gtauaara-bearer,
who was a relative of his wife, and be im
mediately became as enthusiastic in tavor ot
ine canuiaate as ne oaa previously Deen in
regard to his friend. His chagrin at the fate
01 ma favorite lasted lust two minutes ana a
half, which is a long time, considering the
ease with which political weathercocks veer
to any point of the compass with every fresh
breeze of Donular favor.
This newly-found family connection ren
dered the Judge exceedingly sensitive, and
every word that bos been said derogatory to
the nominee of the Chicago Convention he
has regarded as personal, and has, therefore,
been kept continually in a very large quan
tity of very hot water ever since that memo
rable occasion. His extreme regard for the
honor of his recently-discovered relative has
given rise to numerous ludicrous incidents,
aud rendered him Quite obnoxious to many
who formerly thought him quite a sensible
A few evenings since, a number of boys
were playing lu the street in front of his
residence. They had their preferences for
the Presidency, and were shouting for their
favorite candidates with all the buoyancy of
youtn ana an me gtwta 01 a strong party
prejudice, which, although juvenile, was
none tho less hearty, and their denuncia
tions none the less bitter ana personal thaa
if they were children of a larger growth.
Suddenly a little fellow, extremely Demo
cratic in his feelings, ran up the stone steps
to the house of our morbidly sensitive J udge
and shouted loud euoueh to be heard a so uare.
"Hurrah for Lincoln and a rope to hang
him." Tbe blood of the Lincolns was
aroused by this unparalleled outrage, and
the politician threw down his paper, rushed
into tbe street In hot pursuit of the fright
ened lad, who, being somewhat nimbler
i v. : . u - .. .... Ar ui-
k father's castle before the Judge caine up. '
Having arrived at the door, he met tne
bov's father and told bun an eloquent tale
ine manner in wniou ne ana nil utmiiy uau
been insulted by the rude SDeech of the lad.
and pleaded that be should be punished se
verely for having dared in this manner
outrage the hot: or and dignity of his wife
ana ner relative.' 1 - - -
Tbe affair was so supremely ludicrous that

little consequence, when compared with the
