Many of these
are illustrations of national
classics, fairy tales, ad! histor
ic legends. On this 'neutral
tinted reverse, for instance, a
curved line dashed across the
disk is a ftlack-rope; on it is a
nondescript dancing, and be
low a half-kheejing figure rep
resents the juggler of show
man, lie is gesticulating wild
ly with his fan, his mouth is
wide open with well simulated
astonishment at the antics of
the creature on the slack-rope.
This performer is like abadcer;
yet it resembles a tea-kettle.
Its body is the kettle; one cun
ningly curved paw is the spout;
another, which swings the in
evitable umbrella, is the han
dle; and the tail and hind legs
fo-ni the tripod on which the
kettle sits. The story -of The
Accomplished Tea kettle is
very old, and numberless ver
siona of it form a staple dra
matic, poetic or artistic diver
sion of the Jxpanese. Briefly,
it is related that a company
of priests, whe-dw4ti)!them'-selves
in a temple, were af
frighted by their tea-kettle sud
denly. becoming covered with
fur and walking about the
room. It bothered them verv
much by its prauks, being
part of the time a useful and
sober culinary utensil and
partly a mischievous badger.
Catching it and shutting ii up
in a box, ihey sold it to a trav
elmg tinker for a trifle, think
ing themselves Well rid of it.
But the tinker, though sorely
affrighted when he found what
a bargain he had gotten,
shrewdly put his bewitched
tpa-kettle to good account.
He traveled far and wit'e ex
hibi'ing his wonderful beast,
which dilligently performed on
the slack rope. Princes and
nobles came in throngs o see
his show; and so he made him
self very nch by his uniqe en
tertainment. The lucky tinker
and his accomplished tea ket
tle furnish forth adventures for
the Japanese play-goer as nu
merous and various as those of
our own Humpty Dumpty,
dear to the heart ot everv En
glish-speaking child. On the
reverse of another fan you dis
cover an illustration of fairy
lore. A hare and a badger,
grotesquely dressed in water
men's garb, are each paddling
about in boats on a small sheet
of water. They glare at each
other defiantly, but the hare,
notwithstanding he kep3 his
simple expression, seems to
have the advantage of the oth
er. The hare and the badgeri
in the story of The Crackling
Mountain, were old foes, and
had many a tussle, in which
the hare usually got the better
of his adversirv. Finally the
hare, having built a wooden
boat, set off on a voyage to the
capital of tle moon, inviting
his enemy to accompany him.
The wary badgpr refused, but
building a boat of clay, he fol
lowed the bare. The waves
washed the clay so that it bo
gan to dissolve; then the hare,
paddling his craft full upon the
luckless badger, crushed his
sinking boat, and the wicked
animal perished miserably in
the waters. In these fanciful
pictorial conceits the Japan
ese greatly excel, lloksai, a
Japanese artist, says an intel
ligent writer on Asiatic art, has
modeotly protested that it is
more easy to draw things one
has never seen than to repre
sept objects with which every
body is familiar. But these
fantastic creations of the im
agination are all so carefully
characteristically limned that
they deceive by their realism.
Y u think that these odd crea
tures must have studied from
life. You pay an unconscious
tribute to the artist's wise in
terpretation of. nature; for his
fundamental idea is natural.

Davis makes a Speech.
[From the Richmond Enquirer, August 19]
At 11 o'clock the Convention
assembled to welcome Mr. Da
vis. The large ball room was
crowded with ladies, and when
he entered he was received
with applauso rnd standing.
Mr. Davis was introduced by
Admiral Semmes. Governor
Letcher, as the organ of the
Convention, said it was no less
It is pleasure than his duty to
introduce President Davis, and
after a few eloquent remarks,
mixed with apt poetic allusion?,
he bade him welcome, thrice
welcome, to this our home, and
to the hearts, the affections and
the hospitalities of our people.
SPEECH OF MR. DAVIS.
Mr. Davis said be felt this
kind welcome, lie always felt
at home in Virginia, and what
Confederate did not? She gave
her bosom to be racked by all
the horrors of war and freely
shed her best blood. She was
now lifting her lieacl from iis
effects, and he was glad to see
her green fields and pastures,
her fertile valleys and pictur
esque mountains, which here,
like no where else, were
clothed from base to summit.
All wera beautilul; yet there
was here something above
them all. Her men excelled
her soil, and her noble women
excelled even tho men. Well
did he remember when the tide
of war had swept away the men
into the army and scattered the
negroes, how when the barns
and houses, mills and all save
the fences, which were only
spared the destroying flame be
cause they were of stone how
the women of the Shenandoah
Valley, whose hands had never
known an hour's toil in the
liekl, had made crops, and
whenever tho Confederate ar
my came along had ready-made ,
Confederate flags, and were al
ways happy to aid the cause
and feed Confederate soldiers.'
Too long had wo delayed the
vindication of our cause. Many
of the actors had been called
home to their fathers; yet the
delay had not been altogether
unfortunate, for thosn who felt
most deeply found it hard to
uncover their whole heart. The
prospects were brighter now
and "truth crushed to earth
would rise again." We had
been more cheated than con
quered by the declarations of
the Federal President, Con
gress and Generals. Would
there have been a surrender it
we bad expected what has fol
lowed? We were told the war
was merely carried on to main
tain the Union. Had we fore
seen the result, wo would to
day have been free. lie re
ferred to the objects of the As
sociation, and said there were
now scattered scraps of history
that should be collected lo per
petuate the deeds of our fallen
soldiers and vindicate the ac
tion of our country; that great
care should be taken with the
collection of every scrap, as
mankind was deeply interested
in .the constitutional causes
that led to the war. - -
lie relerred to the commer
cial rights of the South, and
how they had suflerred, and the
decadence of both commerce
and liberty. In reference to
the moral and religious causes,
and the idea that because we
did not succeed we were nec
essarily wrong, he said tl.at in
a cause like ours the great Cre
ator must have looked down
with an approving smile: that
we do not always see the work
ings for good in the ways of
the Great Father; that our
chastisement might be design
e J to lead to the triumph of the
principles for which we strug
gled. lie had received" a let.
ter from a gentleman in Massa
chusetts, which said that man
kind owed a debt of gratitude
to the Southern people for
their efforts in behalf of that
constitutional liberty which
men were so rapidly forgetting;
that our story had only been
half told, but when men came
to look upon it without passion,
and the whole truth had been
told, would we then be con
demned before the world? No,
nol These facts must be got
ten together. It was due to
the unrecorded dead, who had
fought for truth anil died in a
patriotic cause. While this or
ganization can not write the
history of this war, yet it could
collect the material from which
future historians might obtain
the facts. Would not our ene
niies or, in the phrase of tho
day, our northern brethren
make up at least and take the
hand of oppression from off our
Southern daughters, or are we
in that decadence of all that
is honorable, to be brought to
the condition ot which the Irish
"Unhonored thy sons, till they hav
learned to betray;
Undistinguished they live, If they
sliitinc not their sires;
And the torch that will light them to
Must be caught at the shrine where
their country expires."
If thus we must seek the road
to prelerment, who would not
live a life of obscurity in prefer
ence? lie had a hope in the
future, founded on theiact that
he had never seen a recon
structed Southern woman, and
while the men of the present
day mUht yield the principles
for which they struggled, yet he
hoped the children who succeed
them would grow up to main
tain and perpetuate them, and
redeem all that we had lott.
lie thanked the audience for
their'kindly expressions of good
will, and as to the members of
the Association, he hoped that
their steps might always be oti
ward to prosperity, and follow
ing in the steps of the grand
old Early, who never faltered
during the war, and never fail
ed since our flag went down.

A Boy and a Hatchet.
A boy borrowed a hatchet
tiom a neighbt r and promised
to return it at night. Before
he went, be was told that his
brother should see the article
returned. After he had come
home and gone to bed, he in
quired and found the tool had
not been sent to its owner. lie
was much distressed to think
his promise had cot been kept,
but was pe suadtd to go to
sleep &nl rise early and carry
it homo next morning. By day
light he was up, and nowhere
was the hatchet to bo found.
After a long and fruitless
search, be sat of! for his neigh
bor's in great distress, to ac
knowledge his fault. But how
great was m surprise to find
the tool on his neighbor's door
stone! And then it appeared
from the prints of his little
bare feet in the mud, that the
lad had got up in his sleep and
carried the hatchet home, and
had gone to b d again without
knowing anything of what had
happened. ' '
