During a recent visit to that ' city, we enjoyed the privilege of spending nu hour in his ; studio, and in tho gallery which adjoins it, where we. saw several paintings, any one of which would add very greatly to the fame which he hus already won. Without pausing to notice particularly some line portraits, the latest productions of his pencil?one of which wc observed was of Dr. Pancoast, the celebrated surgeon, and another of Mr. Wood, the distinguished dramatic veteran -our attention was first arrested by "Hiawatha.'* Wooing," a rich autumnal landscape, in the foreground of which stands the graceful form of Hlawnthu before the beautiful 1 Minnehaha and her old father, who are seated, and at | whnae feet lies "the rod deer." This is a charming ilI lustration of Longfellow's popular poem, and a picture : which one might study with pleasure for a much longer time than wc were able to devote to our entire visit, t Near this painting, we next noticed, "Jeptha's Return." This is a gorgeous scene, with wonderful efleets of light aud shadow, placing tho figures in the foreground in bold relief, and giving great depth to the distance. The lovely form of Jeptha, accompanied by a troop of benutifnl maidens, advances along a terrace, upon the steps ascending to which stands her father, suddenly crushed with horror, as he discovers her approach. The light aud graceful figure of tho daughter, her countenance beaming with joy, and the massive form of the father, his averted features expressive of intense agony, are in striking contrast ; while the rich and varied lines of the costumes ; and the glowing landscape combine to form a splendid | tableau. "The Apotheosis of the Innocents" is another charming picture, in which an angelic throng? each angel bearing on her bosom one of "the Inno| cents"?appears on its way to the "Land of the Itlest." I This is ominentiy a spiritual picture, and one can scarcc! ly contemplate it without feeling that he is, indeed, en' joying a glimpse of the "Fairer Innd." If we may be permitted, however, to select one painti ing which seemed to us to he more transccndently beatitiI ful than any other in the collection, we should wish to i name the one called by the artist "The Spirits of the Water Fall." Here we have a cataract, so jerfect that we seem to hear the sound of the silvery waters, which, in the fore ground, fall gracefully down from one level to another of a range of dark rooks, and a little further on leap abruptly over the projecting ledge, and disappear in a cloud of sparkling spray. The principal figure?a fair nymph, who has just passed over the hrink?is in the act of descending th? fall ; a vapory tissue, secured with a girdle of pcai Is, floats alsmt her delicate form, distinct from, yet mingling harmoniously with, the spray, Imparting a chastening effect, softening the outline without concealing the perfec- I tion of her exquisite proportions. Her face is indescribn- I bly beautiful her blue eyes dreamy and thoughtful with an expression, half abstracted, which, though Indicating a consciousness of perfect purity, hut enhances her loreliness, without rendering it so intensely apirltnal a* to exclude a human ttympathy. Ilcr golden tresses, floating freoly around her radimt brow, arc also adorned, though unrestrained, by a coronal of pearls. In close j proximity conies another figure' over the breast of the cascade, apparently whispering to her the subject of her j thoughts, while their fair hands are linked lovingly to- i gether, and above and around them bright eyes and fair faces are peering out, here and there, among the'waters. Wc turned unwillingly from this fascinating creation to other subjects. "l'htrt deep* Tilaniit," ' * Undutt on the Mind," " Tht Ftiiriet Quarrrl," and " h'mh/niion," all most ulalKirately portrayed, and each a gem o( art. But we cannot refrain from recalling one other picture, which, though unfinished, embodies so much of etherial beauty that it must evermore haunt nny one who has chanced to see it, and thenceforth mingle with his brightest dreams. Wc at first supposed it might lie one of the no' blest and moat poetical creationa of the nrtist's fancy, but soon ascertained that it was a faithful portrait of his young wife. We arc indebted to Sir. Bead for many beautiful woiksof art. As a poet he undoubtedly stands in the highest range of American authorship ; but he evidently unites with his poetic power an artistic ahih Ity no less remarkable, and in such perfect harmony that while wc find his poems to lie nil pictures, it is no less true that his pictures are all poems.

When the Ghkat Mendicant, Lamartlue, mode an uppeal to his ad! mlrcrs, I was almost emboldened to declare my wants; I but the ridiculous uproar with which the press of EugI land and America greeted that universal begging letter, ! quite frightened me from my purpose.

The press-gang reply, "you have been well paid, but you are extravagant." To which replies the smooth Alphonst. "Hut my extravagance is only a foil;/ of the heart, and if I have squandered large sums, it was with 'a rtuvine** that mat/ he calleil holt/;' \ moreover, as 1 am now very poor, and ray credit ait gone, 1 assure you 1 livo vory economically." To which, it is to be presumed, the Uiiver? will suggest that "follies of the heart" are not justly chargeable to t>"* parish, and madness, whether holy or otherwise, ought not to go at large. Hut as SI. de Lainartinc says lie will leave France i if that ungrateful country will not treat liim with a proper franc-ncsa, and as I have little faith that my appeal will succeed if his fails, I must utter a wish that seems like a prophetic announcement of the reply with which the world will generally meet hit circulars, "1 j wivh ha may net it !"

I hasten to make this announcement, in order that iny readers may he on their guard ; when the servant brings in a greasy-looking begging missive, do not incontinently infer that it is a printed form of application from "a distressed Italian who can not speak a word of our language," it may lie an invitation to bestow the smallest-favor-to-Iicgratefully-recoived upon Alphonn/ de Lamartine.
