under the pretense of furnishing him with a
comfortable place to sleep, but during the

nis companion arose ne round that bis pookets

Fatal Idiostnobabt A Citizbh Bistrotb
Kimsslp av Taking. Cbb op bis Hialth. A
gentleman about forty years of age,who reoently
died at his family residence, on Raoe-street,
is said, by his friends, paradoxical as it may
seem, to have actually' killed himself by
taking care of hia health. At , the age
of twenty, with 1 aa excellent constitution,
he began to be troubled with hypochon
dria, 'and imagining every week that he
bad a new disease, ha., swallowed various
drugs and nostrums that soon had the effeot
to injure him materially. He also read every
inblioation on health he oould find, partlcu
arly IlaW: Journal, and followed implicitly
all the rules laid down for the perfect pre
servation of the physleal man. Before be was
thirty, he had btoome an old grandam, rolled
np in cotton and flannels, and annoying all
who were near him with his practical obedi
ence to countless hygiene theories. He was
generally regarded as insane, and every year
increased his mania concerning health, which
steadily declined, notwithstanding his efforts
te improve. His relatives urged him in vain
to quit mediotne and abandon all obedience to
hygienls rules; but be was wedded to his falsa
Esoulaplan idols, end ha died a victim to an
morbid desire to reoovsr the health whioh at
firitwaieaUrely unimpaired, 'i : ' ( ,'

Art Matters—Duncanson's Last Picture.
During a recent visit to' Bunoanson's studio
we found he had just finished a new nieture.
entitled "The Rainbow," a composition of
aiuuies irom nature, wnicn we regard as the
most complete and artistie painting he has yet
prodnoed. . , ......
me picture is a beautiful landscape the
foreground representing low nndulatine- land.
with olayey soil; partially washed by rains,
through whioh flow several smell rivulets. On
the right are rising ground and a hill, with a
dwelling peeping out from tbe foliage; in the
eenter a lake, skirted by occasional beeches; an
open plain beyond; another house embowered
among trees, and in the distance bine hills or
mountains stretohlng far away, on ena of
whioh the setting sun falls, lighting it p
with a golden glory that is aa finely conceived
as executed.
Tbe season is supposed to be Sentember.
and the hour six of the afternoon. A shower
has just passed over, and the clouds are still
visible at the right; while over tbe front of the
picture are the two ttrmini of a beautiful rain
buw. We have our own idea of the rainbow, and
of the propriety of any artist, however
gifted, attempting to csteh its subtle hues or
reproduce its unique semblance on hisoanvas;
but still we can not deny that Dunoanson has
succeeded very well in this most difficult en
deavor. His whole painting is most credita
ble, and must increase the reputation he has
earned.
All the details are finished, and the caint-
ing has more of the true art atmosphere in
and about It than we remember to have no
ticed in any of his previous works. About
the landscape lies a dreamy, poetio languor
that is charming to the sense and refreshing
to tbe spirit, and we felt ourselves sighing for
such an Aroadie as we sat musing before
"The Rainbow" in a bleak and wintry after
noon. Every feature in his pioture is a study from
nature, and the whole is but a transorint of
fragments selected here and there, most of
them from soenery in tbis vicinity. The land
scape reminds one of Italy, as does much of
the scenery hereabout, and no one can gaze
at it long without experiencing a sympathy
with its quiet beauty and delicious repose.
We have written crudely, beoause hurriedly,
of "The Rainbow," but having no leisure to
say more, we would recommend connoisseurs
to pay it a visit, whioh it amply merits.

Cincinnati and its Ahcskhsvts. No one,
as we, have before said, oan complain this sea
son of laok of amusements in our oity, where
we hare a variety and abundanoe not equaled,
probably, In any place outside of New Tork.
We are at present furnished with opera, spec
tacle, drama, necromancy, .Ethiopian min
strelsy and suoh other entertainments as must
gratify all pleasure-seekers.
The week opens quite brilliantly; not less
than nine or ten thousand persons having at
tended last evening the Opera, the theaters,
the Melodeon, Smith Sc Nixon's, and other
places of amusement. Cincinnati becomes
every season, we are glad to say, more metro

It ia high praise to give any peraon aho mar per
form ttiu character of"Mlramla" to say that It did
not shock oue'a aesthetic nature; for no rellty can
approach the ideal, but we can eay more than this
for Mrs. Conway.
Her lithe and graceful figure, her sweet and ex
pressive face, her naturalness and simplicity, com
blned with as full appreciation ot the task she had
undertaken, and an ability to translate correctly to
hj. ...nun. ichbi. .u ior as n can ut cone, ner

That delicate sprite, the dainty Ariel," waa ad
mirably performed by Miss Viola Crocker, and,
although we might, with justice, exercise our pre
rogative, and And fault with her representation of
the part, we saw so moon in it to admire and she
appeared so like what tbe illusion would almoat
Induce one to believe she waa, that we forbear and
forgive In the hope that it may yet be so near com
plete that we shall not be able to complain.
"Caliban," "Timaulo," "Prospero" and "Ferdi
nand," were all finely represented In the persons of
Messrs. Conway, Davidge, Sheridan aud Chaplin,
and the play passed off iucreaaing in interest until
the closing tableau,whlch drew forth an enthusiastic
burst of applause.
Wood's Theateb A good audienoa as
sembled at this popnlar plaoe of amusement, last
evening, to witness E. M. Powers', new tragedy of
The Fatalist, which waa carefully put upon the
stage and, we understand, well rendered by the com
pany. We saw only a little of the play, but that was
very fair, and we learn from those who witnessed the
whole, and who bave heard it read, that It contains
many elaborate and beautiful passages.
Thb Fatalist, though the scene is laid in Spain,
isof the ultra Franco-Italian school, we judge, de
pending tor its plot and catastrophe upon the usual
amount of love and poison, duels ana death, Inter
spersed with reference to Venice and fate, and as
sisted by the introduction of Cathedrals, midnight
altars, and mysterious Pi iests.
as a whole, however, the tragedy I highly cred
itable, at least as a composition, to Mr. Powers, who
has surprised even bis intimate friends by his aaccess
in a literary field, In which he has not heretofore
been suspected of laboring. We have spoken of the
tragedy chiefly from what we have heard when we
have seen v. e will speak more of its merits.
National Theateb. The Escott and Mi
randa Onera Troune opened the National la.tnlirht
to a fine audience, with Balfe's beautiful opera of
in wniiiii, uibij. xuis wora 01 an is laminar to
everybody, and its delicious melodies are "familiar
in our months as household words." The perform
ance last night was quite good, although it had many
faults. Lucy Escott Is an excellent actress and has
a sweet voice, and her Impersonation of the beaut iful
gipsy girl, "Arline," was admirable. Mr. Miranda
and Hiss Annie Kemp are already well-known to our
music-loving citizens the former having before ap
peared in onera in this oity, and tbe latter In concert.
To-night William Vincent Wallace's opera f Mint
tana will be produced, and as the character of the
compoier is so widely known and his music so gen
erally admired, we have no doubt its representation
will All the house.
Mrlodion Hall. The Buckleys had a
large audience last night at the Melodeon, which al
ternately delighted with their music and their com
