Powers's Studio and Statues.
The New York Independent of last
week has the annexed letter from a gen
tleman now sojourning in Florenoe:
We went first to the studio of Powers.
Found it in the Via della Fornaoe. We
rune, and were admitted direotly to the
studio- In a few moments Mr. Powers
made his appearance. He received us
very kindly, and expressed his pleasure
in seeing visitors, particularly' his own
countrymen. In conversation, he is both
oommunioative and interesting, although
not particularly fluent. In the course of
his critioisms and remarks, he mentioned
some reasons why Florence might be pre
ferred to Borne as the residence of an
artist, especially a student. It is a health'
ier place. Living is oheaper. The mod
els are as good, and much easier of
acoess, than in Rome. He is an older
man than I had supposed. Twenty eight
years, I believe, he has lived in Florenoe.
Hopes' to spend his last days in Amer
ica. ,
He conducted as through the different
halls of his studio, pointing out and ex
plaining many of his works. He has
certainly a large private collection
models, busts, and statues. These, how
ever, constitute but a small part of the
. productions of his genius. Many of them
nave loic Florence, the place oi their
birth, and have fixed their residence in
other lands beautiful creations of his
genius, to give joy to their possessors and
remain the lasting' monuments of his
fame. Tho original "Greek Slave" is in
En eland, I believe, in possession of tho
Duke of Cleveland. It properly belonged
to America, and should nave been secured
by some patron of American Art Among
theideol busts were "ProBerpine," "Diana,
and "Psyche" the last a beautiful ideal
of Life. Besides these, there were the
busts of "Franklin" and "Calhoun," and
others, already finished some of them
soon to be removed by the purchasers.
His "Washington" is now under the
chisel a work of fine promise in
Seravesiza marble: This marble, while it
is apparently as pure and beautiful as
the Carrara, is firmer, and so more
favorable to the purpose of the artist, not
allowing the light to penetrate so easily
the thinner parts of a statue, and there
fore casting a better Bhade, and producing
less coufusion to the eye of the observer.
The selection of proper marble is an
important thing for an artist who would
succeed not only in produoing a good
form, but especially in produoing a go d
expression.
Among the statues, we notic ed his "Cal
ifornia" a beautiful and expressive ideal,
and a most appropriate subject for an
American artist She is represented as a
Discoverer of Gold, holding in one hand
a "Divining Rod," in the other a "Thorn."
Both symbolic the one, I'supoBey'of
the discovery, tho other of the difficulty.
Near her is a column of" Quartz," which
is at the sama time a significant symbol
and a support As a symbol it represent
Uold and as such is a novelty in the ar
tistio world. Tho "Divining Rod'' is also
a new symbol. The whole is a beautiful
conception, and the execution corresponds
with the design. This is, I believe, the
second California; the first has been pur
chased by a gentleman in New York at
Sii7,500. The happy selection of subjects
and the appropriate manner of treating
them, bespeak the skill and power of
adaptation as well as the original geniu
of the artist .
Amongthe models I noticed "America,'
t&'v and free, trampling chains beneath
nor feet the artist's exalted ideal of his
native land. "Would that the ideal were
actualized in every part of our great re
public 1
The original model of the Greek Slave,
beautiful, but bound in chains, stands
near by with saddened look, in striking
contrast with her free sister.
To an American who had traveled
North and South, this might be regarded
as a qualification of the other, to remind
us that although America is constitu
tionally free, she is saddened by the sight
of the galling chain.
Another is the model "Eve," evidently
the most difficult and delicate of all ideals
(within the human sphere) to represent
truly. Embodying in the conception the
highest and purest idea of woman thai
an artist ever has or can entertain ol
woman in her holiest estate, fresh from
the hand of the Creator, dwelling in Eden,
communing with heaven, and th( crown
ing gift of god to man oertainly the
highest type of feminine ' beauty and
excellanoe. It required not only genius,
but purity and refinement of taste, to
conceive such an ideal and express it in
marble. And more courage to under
take so difficult and delicate a task.
Yet none, I think, will pronounce the
"Eve" a failure. Still, with its aoknowl
edged excellences, I have been told that
the author has not satisfied his own
ideal.

A Roland fob an Oliver. A wag of
a fellow, by the name of Thornton, one
day got up during service and walked out
of ohuroh, making rather a prominent
display of a gold-headed oane. The
preacher, a well known eccentric charac
ter, with a wooden leg the result of his
love of fox hunting immediately pounced
upon him in this wise, "Pull that cano
from under your arm, my young friend,
and throw it away. There are no gold
headed canes in heaven!" Whereupon
Thornton, turning around, replied, "Pull
that stick of wood out of your pants, m,v
old friend, and throw it away. There
are no wooden legs in heaven!
Rbady-made Fortunes. A modern phil
osopher says that ready-made fortunos
are a good deal like ready-made clothing,
they seldom fit those who get them
Fast young men generally inherit mill
sites while the most likely person to fall
heir to a gallery of statuary would be
some old fogy who would much prefer Uk
more produoable contents of a stone
cutter's yard. Riches are distributed
with very little discrimination. To spei :f'
money properly requires as much brniiv
as to acquire it, and yet who ever knew
of a man of brains to have a "rich uncle,'
or a young man of genius to become tbi
residuary legateo to a silver mine.

An Unexpected Bedfellow.
A corrispondent of the New York Wa
i verly gives the following as one the many
incidents that befall a "boarding 'round
school-master
1 had been teaching in Mason County,
in this, the Sucker State, and this term
was boarding 'round. One evening, after
school, one of my little scholars stepped
up io me ana saia
"Mr. Jones, father said you would oomo
home with me."
"Very well," I replied, and forthwith
set out for my patron's house, which was
distant some two miles. Now, be it
known, James MoHarry, for suoh was his
name, had two daughters, the pride and
envy of the whole oommunity. I had
heard so muoh about them that I was
naturally anxious to see them. It seemed,
however, that I was to be disappointed.
When we arrived 1 learned that the "gals"
had gone to a party the other side of the
creek; so I went to bed, exeorating tho
luck which deprived me of seeing them
that night
The night had well advanced when I
heard one of the girls come home, and
passing into the adjoining room, she
warmed nerselt beiore some coais wnion
were alive-on the hearth. It seems the
old gentleman and lady slept in the same
room, Dut l was not 8 ware ot it tnen
Having warmed herself she turned to
leave the room, when the old man spoke
"uiriB, said; he, "the school-masters in
your Dea.
"very well, said fearah, and passing
tnrougn the room I slept in, went up
stairs. About an hour had elapsed, when
heard Judy, the other one, come. She
stood at the door a long time, talking
with "iier teller, then entered eottlv.
Disrobing her feet, she entered the room
wnere i lay, m Her stocking teet, care
fully undressed herself, and coming to
tne siae ot tne tjed prepared to get in;
Now it happened that I lay injthe middle,
ana turning Daok the clothes, she gave
rae a snake and said in a suppressed
wnispen
"Lie, over, Sarah."
1 rolled over and whipped the corner of
the pillow in my mouth to keep from
laughing. In she bounced, but the bed
would squeak. The old man heard it and
called out:
"Judy!"
"Sir, ' was responded in a faint voice
Irom the bed beside me.
"The Schoolmaster is in that bed."
With one loud yell and an "Oh Heav
ens!" she landed on the floor, and fled
with the rapidity of a deer, up stairs.
never heard the last of it, I can tell
you.
An Eccentric Biro Fancier. The
details of an interesting trial before the
Tribunal of Correctional Police in Parin
havo recently been published in "Galig
nani" A tradesman, living on one of the outer
Boulevards, stepped forward and said!
"It was I who gavo this poor man into
custody, but I am really sorry that I did
"What han he done?" asked the Presi
dent "He walked off one night with four live
ducka and a cock which I prized highly 1"
"And he sold them?"
"No! he exchanged them for four gold
finches!" "Why did ho do so?"
"Because he has a mania for such
birds!"
"Well, he kept the goldfinches, I sup
pose?" "No, he brought them to me !"
"And what explanation did he give?"
"That he was passionately fond of gold
finches, and that it was a great bore to
clean tho shed of the ducks and cock !"
"What was the valuo of the cock and
ducks and goldfinches?"
"ihe tormer were worth 10 francs and
the latter 4 francs!"
"And he exchanged one for the other
without any plausible reason?"
"Simply, sir, from his passion for gold
finoheBl But as I have got my duoks and
cock from tho man who made the ex
change, and as, besides, I have found the
prisoner in all other things scrupulously
honest, I do not wish him to be pun
ished!" "Is he quite right in his mind?" asked
the President
"Perhaps he is a little touohed." was
the answer.
The President then addressed the pris
oner, and asked what he had to say for
himself
"Please, sir," oried the man, again
bursting into tears, "I only made the ex
change because goldfinches sing better
than ducks."
The tribunal, thinking he hod no dis
honest intention, discharged him, but re
commended him an other time to indulgo
his taste for goldfinches at his own ex
pense. '
