THE FINE ARTS.
" Any one who can learn to write, can
learn to draw ; and, as writing is not taught
to those only who are destined to become
authors, but as forming an essential part of
general education, so is drawing equally im
portant to others besides professional ar
tists." The Fine Arts are so intimately related to
all tho affairs of life, that scarcely anyone
will pretend to deny thoir use, although we
do not all fully appreciate their importance,
else drawing would be taught in all our
It would make this article entirely too
long to point out au he advantag es to be
derived from a knowledge of drawing,
therefore only a few will be attempted.
Besides their real, practical utility, there
is no kind of education that has a greater
influence, in the refinement and elevation,
society, than the study of the tune Arts
and to study them as they ought to be tud-
ied, we must do the work ourselves: for
there is no excellenoo without labor. We
do not expect all to become artists, but do
we hesitate to learn to write because we do
not expect to, become' authors T The Ian
guaga oi design is quite as important

that are thought necessary to polish our
No one should be deterred from attempt
jng to learn the art of drawing, from an idea
that Its lacks the capacity, but let him make
the trial. It require but one step ata time.
Did ever any one refuse to : Icarn to read
because he tad first to. Icarn hie letters ?
As, io other pursuits,' all can, not expect to
bo equally proficient, io, a 11 piay not expect
to become artists : for. work of an artist
requires years of careful toil and study ; but
all may be greatly benefitted by studying
even the first principles of drawing. It
will make them better workmen In any and
every department of labor. . Fine works of
art will bo better appreciated, counterfeit
bank-notes will be less easily . passed ; in
truth, it would be impossible to pass a coun
terfeit note if all were educated in drawing
and the language of design. .
It is nyich more difficult for a good photo
grapher to p!eae a subject who is entirely
ignorant of the principles of art, than one
who has made drawing a part of his educa
tion. They can not see that art Is but a
representation of nature, and that a pioture
is made up of light and shade, and where
they exist in the original, they must of ne
cessity be reproduced in the copy. Of course
it is the province of the artist to properly
arrange and modify his light, so as to pro
duce a good artistio effect Cut the tastes
of the people have been perverted by a set
of charlatans, making milk-and-water pic
tures for a mere song, degrading the art,
and creating dissatisfaction among tho peo
ple. It is true, they charge all their pic
tures are worth, because they are really of
It will be an advantage to artists and to
their patrons to encourage drawing, and a
disadvantage to no one, for the pleasure af
forded wiUwell repay the toil.
Not only is it a beautiful accomplishment,
but a never-failing source of amusement It
trains and edu :ate . the eye and hand to
better execute the will of tlioir possessor,
and gives him a power that lie never bjfore
dreamed of, and opens his eyes to beauties
of nature never before imagined.
Will not our teachers introduco drawing
into their Bchools? If not, let the scholars
do it thjinselves.
"A story told of Giotto, the celebrated
Italian painter, who flourished in the be
ginning of the fourteenth century, may not
hore be inappropriate. 'When Pope Bene
dict IX. sent to Florence for specimens o
tbo skill of the artists of that city, his
messenger came to Giotto and told him of
the Pope's intentions, which were to employ
him in tit. Peter's Church, at Rome, and de
sired him to send some design bv him to bis
holiness, by which he might judge of his
capacity. Giotto, who was a pleasant man,
took a sheet of white paper, and drew, with
one stvoko of his pencil, a circle so exactly
that 'round as Giotto's 0,' became a proverb.
Then presenting it to the gentleman, he told
him that there was a piece of design which
ho might carry to his holiness. The mes
senger replied, 'I ask for a design.' 'Go,
sir 1 said Giotto ; 'I tell you his holiness
asks nothing else of me.' Giotto went to
Home.' 'This artist who stool so high in
his day, whose works are so justly admired,
who rose to the esteem and friendship of
the greatest men of the age in which he
lived, whom Dante and Petrarch were proud
to own as a friend, to whose memory, when
dead, the city of Florence erected a statuo,
was once a poor shepherd boy ; and, while
tending the sheep in the field, developed
the talent that made him what he became,
by drawing his flock in the sand and on flat

Mcsic is a science which is peculiarly
agreeable to mankind. It is said to have
"charms to soothe a savage, ', and in ancient
times, it was fabled that certain excellent
musicians drew congregations of wild
beasts to listen to tbem, and even set the
forest trees to dancing. We have wisely
concluded that these are "f acts which are
not true." But it is unmistakably a fact,
that music is very pleasing to the human
race: Hundreds and thousands of men will
spend their lives in earnest labor, for the
purpose of listening to the musical chink of
the golden coin. We have seen the music
loving mechanic, in the absence of a flute,
go to filing a saw. We have lain sleepily in
bed for an hour at a time, (when we ought
to have been up and at work,) listening to
the enchanting music of the crowing chan
ticleers around. We notice that their voic
es vary from a deep "judicial basso,' to
clear, shrill tenor, or soft soap-rain -0 1 And
many a dark night have our delicious
dreams been harmoniously interrupted by
dulcet warblings, reminding us of the sweet
est organ tones, and as we opened our eyes,
we have imagined that we heard the echoes
of an 'angel chorus.' But, alas! it proved
to be only the oleav, piercing melody of the
'skeeter,' and we generally found his bite to
be about as piercing as his song 1 . Rabbits
and donkeys are supposed to have good ears
for music, although, owing to bad colds
their voices are not always in tune. But,
after all has been said, we may conclude
that the musio whioh is most pleasant to
the ear, and which will draw a man from his
occupation the soonest, is the mcsio of the
"Do You Want a Boy, Sir?"
you want & boy, sir?" said
George, a little fellow scarcely
eight years old, to a clerk in a large
office. r : t
"Want a boy? Why, who .wanti
to be engaged!", aeked the) clerk
with a' puzzled glance at the little
applicant. ' - 1 ' ;
i'l do, 6ir," replied George.
"Look ., here," cried -the young
man, speaking to his fellow clerks.
"Here 19 a regular Goliath"! Wants
to b, e porter, I suppose. Look at
him I"' (
The ; 'clerks' "i gathered in great
glee about George, who stood full
ot earnest purpose, therefore quite
unconscious ot any reason why he
should be made an object of sport.
"What can you dor asked one.
fcYou can post books, of course,"
"Carry a bale of goods on your
back, eh?" cried a third.
"Ilush," said tho book-keeper at
the desk, after viewing George
through his spectacles. "Ilufh !
don't make sport of the child ; let
me talk to ium." lhen speaking
to George, he said: "You are too
young to be engaged. Who sent
I came myself, hit. My father
and mother are dead ; my aunt is
poor, and I want to earn something
to help her. Won't you please take
me, sir.' '
Ihe simple story, told in a way 1
showing how earnest the boy was,
not onjy checked the sport of the
clerks, but brought tears to their
eyes. They looked on the delicate
child before them with pity ana
respect, and one of them placing a
smiling on the desk, asked the rest
to follow hia example. They did
so. lie then took the money and
offering it to George, said : "You
are too small to be ot any use here,
my good boy, but take this money,
and when you have grown a bit,
perhaps we may find something for
you to do.' George looked at the
money, without oilenng to touch it.
"Why don t you take the money?'
asked tho clerk.
"Please, sir, I'm not a beggar
boy,' said George; I want to earn
something to help my aunt to keep
me, for she ia very kind.'
"You are a noble little fellow,-
said the senior clerk. "We give
you the money not because we
think you a beggar, but because we
like your spirit. Such a boy as
you will not easily become a beg
gar, lake the money, my boy,and
may God bless you and give you
and your aunt better days?'
I like George's spirit in this af
fair. It was noble and self-reliant
beyond his years. It was the spir
it that makes poor boys grow into
usetul and successful men. It
made George do this, for in after
years that little boy became a no
ble artist whose praise was spoken
by many tongues. All children
should cherish a desire to do what
they can for themselves, and lo
support themselves as early as pos
sible. Thoso who lean on father
and mother for everything will find
it hard work to get along by-and-by,
as they may have to do when
they die. Those who early learn
to rely upon themselves will have
little difficulty in earning their own
living. Learn, therefore, lo help
yourselves, always taking care to
do so under the advice and with
the consent of your good parents
Shooting Affray and the Military
Bill in Florida.
Recently the city of Gainsville
was entertained by a little shoot
ing affair. Captain George Buck
lin was accosted in the morning by
one Baily, who wished to know if
he (Bucklin) pushed two ladies off
the sidewalk the day before f
"No," replied Bucklin.
' . "You are a damn coward," said
"You are a damn fool," replied
Baily then drew a bowie knife
and cut the Captain in the hand,
and snapped his pistol at him twice.
It did not go off. Bucklin then
drew his pistol and shot Baily
twice, once in the breast and once
in the hand ; neither wound fatal.
The Sheriff then arrested both par
ties, and they were both tried at
once, and both acquitted.
Capt. Ames,commanding United
States forces , at this place, then
interfered, and told the Judge that
he could not allow Baily to be ac
quitted ; consequently, he (Baily)
was bailed to appear at the next
term of the Criminal Court.
