0. A. BULLAKD
Wa born at Iloward, btculien Co, N. Y., on the.
2d of February, 1810. His parent came from
Massachusetts, and were hiiioiik Iho curliest
settlers of Steuben county. His father was n
farmer of good repute. When tho latter died,
the subject of this ketch was fourteen years of
affc, and he was apprenticed to the business of
wai;on making ami niyn painting; tliose brunch
es being frequently united, in many of our
villages. His love' for tho fine nits was llr.-t
awakened by tho arrival of a portrait painter in
that place. Eager to obtain soino knowledge of
tho art, he exerted himself to the utmost lo raise
the wavsand means, and implied for instruction;
but the artist refused to disclose any of his pro
fessional secrets. At that period ho vns eighteen
years of age, and the productions of this painter
were the first oil paintings ho bail ever seen.
Everafterwurds, his mind was fixed upon paint
ing, and although the way did not then appear,
an artist he was determined to becomo. With
this view he desired to leave his trade, for the
purpose of obtaining Instructions in some of the
distant cities: but at the earnest entreaties of
hit mother, who could not bear the idea of part
ing with him, he romaincd. All his spending
money was laid out in books : but lie searched
In vain for any that gave information on
painting.
At this Juncture, a friend of his, a young phy
sician, patiently waiting, liko many others, lor
gray hairs, to entitle him to confidence, agreed
" to sit for his likeness." Ho was In his glory,
as, with a painter's pencil, odds and ends of
brushes, and the premises all to himself and his
"subject," he commenced his first portruit. It
was, we presume, with somo such feeling ns that
Of an orntor making hi d.bat, or . gonorul
about to fight his first battle. The portruit was
dealonvl to lie excellent, and, to hi. grntiflcfttion,
t was pronounced greatly superior to those
painted by tho professional artist. All the peo
ple declared that it was like life Itself j and In
truth there was no fear of his lulling Into the
difficulty of a certain artist, who, having painted
horse, thought it ucccssary, for tho Informa
tion of persons not Judges of the lino arts, to in
scribe underneath the animal, "This is a Horse."
When of age, Mr. Dullard visited Massachu
setts and Connecticut, where ho found friends
who gave him tho requisite instructions. He
then commenced business as a portrait painter,
et Hartford, where he met with good success.
During several subsequent years, he painted por
traits In Massachusetts, and in the western part
of the State of New York.
In 1811 he married tho eldest daughter of A.
A. Olmstead. Ksn... and since tho winter of 1813,
he has made New York city his permanent place
of residence.
There nrobablv Is no Artist now living, of Mr.
Ballard's age, that has lalmred harder, or applied
himself more closely to his profession, for the
st fifteen years, lie has illustrated a fact that
kas been illustrated by a great many individuals,
vis: that Uod gives nothing to mortals without
bor it is labor that produces everything,
there Is no doubt of the fact that it Is the duty
sf evory man, more especially of every young
man, to find out what trado or profession God
tetended him for; and then, after ascertaining
that fact, to devote tho whole powers of his aimd
to the accomplishment of that c object, vis: to
erril in thai trade or profession. It makes no
dill'ercnre whether a man shoes a horse, makes
a boot, shoves the forepluno, paint a pieturo. or
preaches a sermon whatever he docs ho should
do ic . Mr. Uiilliiid. like all men who have dis
tinguished themselves, has acted upon this pritt
ciplo. Kurly in lira tho idea was strongly Im
pressed upon his mind that Cod made him for
n Artist. I'rcvloiis to his settling down in Now
York citv, to distinguish himself, lie had painteo
the portraits of fiyAtAiiiiimdiil'erent individuals
It is the vast amount of labor that Mr. Ilullaro
has performed, and that only, that has earned lot
him tho reputation he now enjoys, of beins ons
of tho brightest jewels of the American Schooi
of Artists. He went to New Yoik with the de
termination to distinguish himself in his profes
sion, nnd nlihougli he was not known to n singlo
individual in that city, he formed a resolution to
wm for himself, in time, a reputation that should
bo world-wide. The wordui7 was uot found in
Mr. Uulhird's dictionary.
After painting the portraits of over ono linn
died different individuals, residing In New York
ciiy and vicinity, lie believed ho could do more
good by painting works that should carry t
moral with them. Tho most of Ills works have
been those that illustrated tho manners and cus
toms of American Life nnd History. His first
great painting was "Tho Lasl ll'anket. All
who are taimllnr Willi American History, win
recollect that, during tho devolution, when our
army were suffering for clothing nnd food, at
Vull'ev Forge, tax gatherers wero sent by Gen
eral Washington, to collect of tho pcnplo what
ever they could give for the support of the army
Upon ono occasion, ono of these tux gatherers
called upon a widow woman who had one babe
that halio was asleep, wrapped In tho widow's
only blanket, but such was her interest in ths
cause of American Independence, that she took
from her shoulders her only shawl, wrapped her
chilli in it, and handed her only blanket to the
tax gatherer, to carry to tho soldiers of tho
Revolutionary Army. That sceno was the sub
ject of his first great picture; nnd it was sold to
trio American Ari union, uuu nua uiunu uj
Mr. I. H. Drown, of New lork city.
His second und probably his greatest work
;,ia.'-Tho I.ii"lih-rs Anneal.'' All have read of
was. "1 he Daughters Ar
Kthnn Allen.
He was n bravo and generous manJ
but lin was an infidel. Ho wrote a book on
Inlldelitv, called tho Oracles of Keason. The
wlfi. of Kthan Allen was a devoted pious lady
a momlicr ol tnu rrei.jt..rian nmrch. She had
a number of daughters, all of whom believed the
doctrines their mother had taught them, with
tho exception of the eldest. Hits girls mina
had been biassed lie tho inftuenco of her father.
and she was inclined to believe the doctrine of In
fidelity. At the age ol' eighteen, she lay upon her
death bed. She sent for her father to come to her
room, and addressed him in these words: "Fa
ther I must die; I must meet my God ; now deaf
Father, tell me. shall I believe the doctrines that
you havo taught me, or shall I believe the doc
trines that my mother has taught me 1" The
brave old Soldier that could faco a cannon's
mouth nnd not Hindi a hair, when this question
was addressed to him, hesitated, dropped bis
head, the tears trickled down his checks, and be
said with emphasis: " )uu(jhter,btliwe the doe
trine your motlitr hun tmttjM ymt!" This scene," The
Daughter's Appeal," was the subject of his sec
ond groat Fainting it was sold to the Art Union
and drawn by Geo. J. J. Barber, of Homer, N. Y
His third great Painting was "Nathan Hale,
just before his Execution. This was sold to the
American Art Union, and drawn by a western
man. His fourth great l'aiuling, was "CapL
John Smith, and I'ocahontas." All will recoUeol
tho scene this was sold to the Art Union.
Among other productions are "Judith In the
tent of Holoferncs," "Llorso Trade," and "San
Slick."
Ho died in New York city on the 13th of 0
ober, 1803.

Pahtv, "He said the Whi; paity is
not only dead, but it stinks, It shotvj

Why is it "dead"? Why does it
"stink"? Will Senator Wadeanswei?
We think it died as much from the
fact ot its having followed in the lead
of just such vulgar demagogues as
this Senator Wade, and ttlnks front
being at all tunes ready to coalesce
with al' the rotten issues of the day.

"rfead" but that it "stinks," we think;
