FOOTSTEPS OF ANGELS.
BY H. W. LONGFELLOW.
When the hours oi U..y are number d,
And the voices ol Hie night
Wake he hetiersoiil thai sluinliered,
T a Imly, calm di lUbt.
Ere the evenii g lamps are lighted.
Anil, like phantoms grim and tall.
Shadows Irum lb'- fiilul tire light
Dance upon the parbur nil.
Then the forms of the departed
Enter at tlie open door:
The beloved. Ihe true-hearted,
0-inie to visit us once more.
He. the younir and stron.L', who cherished
Nolile lonL'inns for he strife.
By Ibe niadsidefell and perished,
Weary witu tlie marcli ot Ji:e.
Thev, the holy ones and weukly,
Who the cross of stiff, fine bore.
Folded their pule hands so meekly.
Spake wuh us ou earth no more.
And with them Ihelieim; lieanli-ous :
Who unto mv youth was giv.-n.
More than all lliinirs else, to hive me.
And is now a san.t in heaven
With a slow and noisless footstep
Ciuu 8 that messenger divine.
Takes the vacant chair beside me.
Lays her gentle hand in mine;
And she si Is and ifazes at me
With those deep and tender eves.
Like the stars, so still and aainl-like.
Lonkiui: downward from the skies.
Uttered not, yet comprehended.
13 Ihe spini s voiceless prayer.
Soli rebukes, in bl. ssinirs ended,
Breathing trom her lips of air.
Oh. though" nfl depressed and lonely,
All my tears are laid aside.
If I hut remember only
tnicli as these had lived and died.

ROME, APRIL 2. 1874.
attempt to critically
the statuary, paintings, and inscrip
tions, bas-reliefs, frescoes, and mosa
ics to be seen in the Vatican galleries
in the Juuseum of the Capitol, and in
the great private galleries, is as
IMPOSSIBLE AX UNDERTAKING
as to discribe all the faces, dresses,
and articles one -may see at a State
Fair. A verbal description can at
lest only convey , a faint or vague
idea of the actual appearance of the
original to the mind of the absent
reader. JNothing but an inspection
by the eye itself is sufficient or satis
factory in this respect. To appreci
ate, one must see for himself; for
descriptions by travelers can at best
give only the impressions of the
writers in language which never con
veys to tbe mind of the reader more
than a famt outline of the picture or
image of the object seen in the mind
of the describer.. This is iu conse
quence of the poverty of language,
winch has not the power to transfer
photographic copies or reflections of
faces on the brain of one person t
that of another. We can remember
the looks -of a person, or his or her
air and style, but can never describe
them so that ot hers may see them as
we do. And the same diihcultv ex
ists in attempting to convey one's
notion of a statue, a group of figures
or :i uas-n-liel. - .
The marble statuarv in the Vati
can galleries alone will fill both sides
of & halt a mile lontr; the uicturos
win nil ootii sides ami ceiling of an
other hall more than a mile in length
Ihe descriptive catalogue of these
marbles and paintings, devoting only
a hue or two to -each, tills- a good
sieed volume. To describe each ob
ject of art in detail would fill more
books than are contauied 111 a consid
have much more interest than the pic
tures, however great may be the ex
cellence of the latter. One reason is
that the pictures ar all modern, com
paratively speaking, bein mainly
the work of artists of .the sixteenth
and seventeenth centuries, whereas
few of the marbles are bo young as
sixteen or seventeen centuries old.
Another reason is, the paintings are
all either ideal or im igiuary, and not
sketches taken from the original ac

whereas the marble bust actually re
sembles the original, because it was
taken from a cast of his face when
living, and cut from the block of
marble under his own inspection and
riticism ; or, if the statue be a copy
of the original, there ls the same
hance that it still resembles the sub

A Dicture. at best, is ouiy a coiorea
shadow of a substance; but the stat
ue is a counterfeit of the thing itself.
It is something corporal, which one
can not only see, but touch. How
ever, all this is but a. matter of taste
and notion. Many persons care little
for statuary, but are carried away
with happiness before a fine picture.
AGE ADDS TO THE VALUE
of a work of art It lends an addi
tional interest to a statue to know
that it was executed in the ages of
antiquity. There are pieces of stat
uary in the Vatican gauenes wmcn
date back before the time of Socra
tes and Demosthenes; and others in
the Egyptian collection which are
contemporaneous with the periods of
David, Sampson and Moses; and
some obelisks and sarcophagi that
were already ancient in the days of
Abraham or the seige of Troy. In
the Vatican are scores of full-length
statues and groups which are either
the works of Phidias and Praxiteles;
or copies therefrom by their disciples.
One can look at the Dusts ot Homer,
feeling that it is a correct likeness
of the prince of poets, with as much
confidence as that the bust of Shaks-
peare resembles the Bard of Avon.
One Of the most jmeresting col
lections of statuary, for the student is
found in the
MUSEUM OS CAPITOT HILL.
One large room is filled with the
busts of the Emperors and their
wives, extending over a period of
600 years; and the adjoining room
contains nearly a hundred busts of
he most illustrious men of (jreek

Homan Emperors. In the hall con
taining the latter are. arranged in
ihronological order, with scarcely a
break, eighty-three Emperors and
Empresses, beginning with Julius
Caesar, b. c. 63, whose murderer,
Brutus, sits in the adjoining room,
and ending with Justin, in the time
of Belisariu-', a. d. 527.
Here the visitor has looking him
in the face, from out of marble eyes,
the rulers of Rome from the date of
its zenith to the date of its fall.
They embody the history of that
wonderful power trom tne time the
Hepublic was changed into the H,m
pire until it was dismembered and
reduced to a ghastly ruin. - in con
templating each' of these mavble im
ages, one sees before him the form
and features, the contour and expres
sion in short, the fac-simile of a
monarch whose will was law to 150,-
000,000 of human beings of Europe,
There, at the head of the proces
sion of rulers, sits ,he counterfeit of
the head of the
Julius Caesar, whose frown awed the
world. ' It was brought into' its pres
ent shape in his own presence, and
received its nmshing touches under
his own critizism... Next to it sits
the bust of his adopted son, the wise
and magnificent Augustus, who was
the Solomon among the Roman Em
perors, as Julius Csesar was the Da
vid, as a warrior . and stern ruler;
and then come young Marcellus and
Tiberius, in whose reign lived Christ;
Drnsus and Antonia, his wife, the
mother of Germanicus and Claudius;
Caligula, the bloody monster, with
round head, - thick neck and low
brows; and near him the still blood
ier monster, Nero, the execrated of
Christendom. Not far along the
line are Vespasian and Titus, the de
stroyers of Jerusalem; and close to
them is the sanguinary wretch, Dom-
itian; and near him are Irajan and
Hadrian, two of the ablest of the
Uoraan Umperors. And then comr
the benevolent statesman Antonine
THE REMARKABLE PHILOSOPHEK,
Marcus Amelius, of whom it is said,
"Their united reign of fortv-two

One or two removes from him is El

severalofthe Thirty Tyrants who
arose and fell in quick succession,
and inflicted misery on the Roman
Empire by their vices, cruelty and
profligacy. This was a period of
war, pestilence and famine. They
are followed by Claudius, Aurelian
and Probus, whose busts are in the
procession of Emperors. Aurelian is
one of the great and fortunate Em
perors, scarcely second to J ulius. Cae
sar in warlike ability, and like him,
he depended altogether too much on
the sword to maintain himself in
power. He was "the useful, though
severe, reformer of a degenerate
State." Then follow the busts of the
great Diocletian, and of Galerius,
Maximian, and Constantitis, with
whom he divided the command of
the legions, and the Government of
the overgrown Empire. The head
of Diocletian is one of the most
striking and commanding of the
We now reach the culmination of
the long rank of great Emperors in
the statue of
CONSTANTINE, THE GREAT,
who proclaimed the Christian relig
ion as the future worship of the Em
pire, A. d. 324, and from which date
the ancient religion rapidly fell into
decay and passed away forever.
One "of his acts was the erection of
the first Church of St. Peter, close
to the Circus of Nero, where dubious
tradition affirmed that St. Peter had
been crucified, head downwards.
Twelve hundred years afterwards it
was inclosed within the enormous
walls of the modern Basilica, or
Church of St. Peter, and then pulled
down and removed.
The remainder of the list of Em
perors whose busts are preserved is
short. There is Julian, called the
Apostate; then Jovian, who restored
the Christian worship; then one of
the Valentinians; next Theodosius
the Great, who gave the death blow
to the ancient mythological religion
of the Romans; then Arcadius, Zeno
and one or two others, close the long
procession, bringing us past the time
when the barbarian Alaric and his
Goths ravaged Italy and sacked Im
perial Rome uself; and past the
time when the ferocious Attila, with
his Hungarian savages, -so burnt, rav
aged and destroyed the provinces ot
Italy, that it became a saying of af
ter generations that the grass never
grew on the spot wnere Atuia s norse
had trod. Great Rome was now in
the valley of humiliation and tears.
The decay of art is shown in the ex
treme degradation which sculpture
had reached in the last eight or ten
busts of the Emperors the execu
tion of each becoming worse than its
rass now into the next room, ana
you are in the presence of a long line
of the renowned and
of Grecian and Roman history. Here
are generals, poets, historians, states
men, orators, philosophers, aud men
of science. The busts are executed
almost without exception in the best
tyle'of Greek art, and look so nat
ural and life like that the visitor al
most expects to hear them speak to
him as he gazes in their faces.
Strange feelings of reverential awe
creep over the mind in the presence
of this array of the great dead, re
produced in marble. What an as
semblage is here! There before your
eyes are Homer, Socrates, Aristides,
Sophocles, Plato, Pythagoras, De
mosthenes, Machines, Arcnnaeaes,
Enclid, Esculapius, Diogenes, the
Cynic, Alexander the Great, Esop,

Younger, Pompey, Stilicho, and ma
ny others less renowned. .Most ot
these busts were sculptured in the
life-time of the originals, or made
from casts while tneir memories
were still fresh and green.
But I observed that most of the
visitors who came into the halls of
the Emperors and of illustrious men.
merely gave them a passing glance,
between a careless and a vacant stare
and then moved on, perfectly in

is in the Vatican. -
It seems to possess the originals or
1 . . , . . . !
copies of everything ever devised in
marble. When 'one has seen it, and
all other collections in
the world are so dwarfed bv the con-
trast that they are of little account.
As a museum of art. the whole of
Europe could noi duplicate it. It
has been well observed that "He
who has seen the Vatican has seen
the utmost point reached by the hu
man mind in sculpture, painting,
mosaics, and frescoes; " for it con
tains the gems of ancieut as well as
of modern art. The world is no more
likely lo witness anything beyond
what is there visible, than to have
hereafter a "nobler epic than the Iliad
or a greater dramist than Shak
speare." Among the thousands of marbles
in the Vatican, the ones which stand
the greatest throngs are thj Apollo
Belvidere; the Laocoon group the
Belvidere Antinous; the Perseus
and the Two Boxers, by Canova,
who is the greatest of all modern
sculptors; and the statue of Venus
from which Powers copied his Greek
Slave, whereby he established his
frame in the United States as a
great original genius; but the only
thing he "originated" was the chain
and handcuffs all the rest he bor
rowed, without giving credit.
THE LAOCOON GROUP,
Michael Angelo pronounced it "the
miracle of art," and it still holds
the first place in the Vatican collec
tion. But one can hardly contem
plate it without experiencing a sen
sation kindred to horror. The group
is a father and his two sons, boys
about 10 or 12 years old, who in a
tropical forest, at noon-day. are
seized, and entwined, and crushed to
death in the slimy folds of two
enormous boa-constrictors, sent by
tiiegodsto punish an impious mor
tal. " Laocoon himself, in his mortal
conflict, is invested with courxge
nd dignity, and. is putting forth
more than human strength to loosen
the strangulating clasp of the dead
ly serpents. But his prodigous ef
forts are clearly all in vain; the ago
lzed father can save neither his sons
nor himself. The whole group is a

TWO CELEBRATED PUGI1JSTS.
Creugas and Damoxenus, are stat

and the attitudes appropriate to
their profession. To my eye they
are much superior in life-like expres
sion to the Boxers of the Canova in
another room of the Vatican. The
latter are certainly splendid repre
sentations of brute strength and
courage, but lack the grace, poise,

mind is not relieved bra single pic

attention of the visitor. Perhaps
this feeling might wear off if one
should revisit these galleries often
enough; but they create, on first
view, a eertain feeling of repul

MANY OTHER GREAT GALLERIES
of statuary and paintings in Rome.
Of course, none of them compare
with tlie Vatican; but they can hard
ly be excelled by the collections in
any other cities in Europe. I will
mention the names merely of a few.
First is the Museum of the Lateran
belonging to the Lateran Church,
which was the Palace of the
Pope since the days of Consta
tine. It contains some of the old
est pictures produced by the Chris
tain painters. The Quirinal palace,
where the King of Italy now resides,
contains a fine collection of pictures
mostly on religious subjects. Ot
what is called the private collections,
the largest and finest maybe seeu
in the Albaui palace; in the Barber-
iii palace; iu the Borghese palace;
in the city, and tt)a Villa palace be
yond the walls; in the Colonna pal
ace; in the Corsini palace; in the
Dona-Pamphili, in the f arnese, and
in the Spada palaces. There are
nearly 100 of these private collec-
tions of art. If they were in the
United States scattered among the
cities, the art loving public wouia
