Tlie .nthetic Sens In Animals.
Animals possess in :.n appreciable man-
tier certain tastes imlicating an elemen
tary sense of the beautiful. This sense
is uot present in all animals, and those
who do possess it manifest it in different
uegrees. Bnt it is 6uiScient to know that
its existence can be recognized. Birds
are particularly gifted in this manner.
ilicy have a taste for bright colors ami
melodious (.omuls, and most frequently
the male subjugates and fascinates his
uinte with the beauty of his plumage or
the flexibility of his vncal organs. There
are betides other birds who show this
aesthetic 6ense in a singular manner.
One of these is the baya. He has a
passion for brilliant and variegated ob
jects, and he has a habit of ornamenting
the entrance to his nest, which is built
with infinite art and elegance, with a
variety ef objects, gathered by bits from
all quarters, which happen to strike his
fancy. Among tliem are brilliantly col
ored feathers of other birds, bright bits
of shells, bits of stuffs, and the bird
6truts about in the midst of all this with
Insects also possess a marked aesthetic
sense. They prefer certain colors, and
the plants which depend upon them
for fertilization show an entirely differ-
ent variety of colors f i om those of plants
whce fertilization is affected by means
of the wind. Musical sounds also affect
different animals in a marked manner.
They have their pref srences and their
antipathies. Review of Reviews.

Karly American Sculptor.
It is worthy of special notice that when
Rush began to model in clay not one of
the artists who have given celebrity to
our native sculpture had seen the light
of day. Frazer was not born until 1790.
nor Ezekiel Augur of New- Haven until
1791. The latter was originally in the
grocery trade, but failing in that took
up modeling and wood carving without
any guide except his natural instincts;
but like the majority of our early sculp
tors, with the exception of Rush, his ef
forts are interesting only as evidence of
what talent entirely unobstructed can
It was not until 1S05. long after Cop
ley, West, Malbone. Allston and Stuart
had demonstrated our capacity for pic
torial art, that Hiram rowers was born.
The same year Horatio ( ireetiough first
saw the light of day. In the remote
wilds of Kentucky ilart was brought
into this world in 1S10, and Clevenger,
Crawford and Mills followed in 1812,
1S13 and 1S15. Thus we see that, with
out hereditary genius or predecessors
from whom to copy, Rush achieved his
artistic results, and succeeded in win
ning for himself a European renown
which made him the equal of some of
the leading foreign carvers aud sculptors
of his age, and at the same time well
earned the title of "father of American
