"Paintin a Reglar Trade." - The
L, lato Henry Inman used to relate the
following story :
l1 lie was sitting in his studio, then in
Y Murray street near Broadway, one
Y morning, when a jaunty looking young
t man and woman entered, and wanted
to, "see the picture he had painted of
, S'phiar G- , in B------street." It
'1 was unfinished, but was readily shown
to to them by the always obliging artist.
'(),1 ain't that good! ain't that good!
(1 particularly the comb! That's S'phiar's
ty comb for all the world ! I should ha'
11 k:,'wn it anywhere !"
The appreciative young lady's com
Spanin radmitted that t itwas ,go1d; adl
Itadled flatteringly to the artist :
11 "After all, lainiitin' isa reg'vlr trade,
is'nat it ?"

Gold Dis covery in Arkansas.-T eh
following paragraph is frdm the Dee
Are Union :
In our last issue it was announeel
that several specimens of gold hslbe'en
taken from the bore of the .arteian
well which is being dug in this pId.;
It was thought by many of our olti
at the time, to be shoax upon the u
lou., but further and more partioular
search has brought a very rich and
profitable Vein of gold to discovery
at least sudeh.Ists to be the opinion pf
all, who have- emiined the pieces of
ore which have been washed odit The
attention of Mr. John Anderso,,a well
known citizen, and a gentlemasi who
has had several years experience in
mining througl Cilifornia. wastttraet
ed to the kind of nd whichwas thrown
out of the well last Friday, after tlne
workman had reached the depth of twe*
ty feet with the auger. He gathered
some of it into a pan, and at the bottom
of which, after the washing process, he
found nearly a teaspoonful of shining,
dusty particles, which proved to be the
pure precious metal, unde#, ohepalal
test. Saturday afternoon Maowing,
Mr. J. ]I. Quisonbury washed put seov
eral particles, which averaged two or
three grains each in weight. The ex
citement consequently became g eet
and contagious, and almost every spe
icis of pans was brought into use, to
wash out the glittering treasure. Sov
eral others wore successful in finding
mIore or less of the ore, and specimens
of it were sent to the jewellers of Mem
phis by the steamoer Admiral. The au
ger threw up a largo quanity of the
metal on Monday last, which was wash
ed from the, sand by a half dozen or
more people. Mr. Russ Evans found
a throe lumps, the largest of which is
valued at a dollar and eighty cents;
I Mr. Warren, blacksmith, found n nug
get worth two dollars, and Mr. A ,Icr
son himself has washed out many eau
tiful and valuable specimeons. It i- the
opinion of Mr. Auderson, Mr. Qua- n
bury,and several oth l who have b, ,'
in the mines of (Calii , that thi- is
one of the richest virns ever discovered.
The sand in which the gold was found
at this place has been pronounced to
be identical with that of Californin,
both in character and color, ThIe gold
fever is on the rage here now, and we
have been informed that a company of
B our most reliable citizens has boon
formed for the purpose of pinking a
shaft on the bank of White river, sonimc
where in the vicinity of Dos Arc.
F A Pretty F'acy.--Taylor, of the
e Chicago Journ, says :
When the day begins to go up to
heaven at night, it does not spread a
e pair of willgs and fly aloft like a bird,
but it just climbs softly up a ladder.
It sots its red sandal on the shrub you
i have watered these throo days lest it
o should pe rish with thirst; then it stops
o to the trlt' we sit under, and thenco to
thi ridge of thie iroof, to the chimney,
and from thlie hiimney to the tall chln,
Sfront tlhe tall cli to the church spiro,
d and then to th0 cloud, iand theou to the
i- threslhld of heaven; and thus from
y round to crilmson round, you can ,see it
go ait though it, walkied upon red roses.
