THE DAILY Ej&HJNG TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, AUGUST 18, 18G8.
The lintorrrtto of the Mnctcenth Century. About eighteen years ago there appeared cue day at the editorial office of the Charivari, the famous humorous paper of Paris, a youth in a more than humble .costume, in order to present a recommendation and to offer at the came time a sketoh to be inserted in the afore said Journal. IIow joyfully beamed his deep black eye3 When the editor, after reading the letter, accepted the sketch, although he was not able to conceal a slight shrug, aud caused trrenty llve francr to be paid to bira. "I wonder If this youth has breakfasted to-day," said an acquaintances of the editor who happened to bo present, after the youth Lad left the room. .... . "There are, unfortunately, plenty of such unknown and unappreciated geniuses," replied lluart who, although himself a newspaper writer, since he had become a publisher, had assumed the manners with which a great many Trench publishers think they must treat artists as yet unknown to fame. Five years afterwards the same young mau Informed the editor of the Charivari that he could no longer furnish any drawings to that paper, unless twelve, instead of ten, LouU d'ors were paid him for each of them. The wonderful skill and productivity of the artist Lad meanwhile become bo generally known that he was the moat popular newspaper illustrator of France. Many of my respected readers, I am sure, Lave already divined of whom I am speaking. The artist is, of course, no other than Gustave Dore. Already in his earliest youth there were unmistakable manifestations of his wonderful talents, and from his fifth year forward draw ing wa3 his favorite occupation. Barn at Etrasbnrg as the son of a poor engineer, who was infatuated enough to deplore the wondnr ful talents of his son, and pronounced the pains he bestowed on drawing an 1 painting a foolish waste of time, Gu stave Dore came to Paris in 184(1, in his thirteenth year; and al ready from the following year date his first newspaper illustrations, which were published in a manuscript journal edited by the pupils of Charlemagne College. The poverty of his family compelled him to abandon his project of attending the lectures of the l'olytechuio School, and when the revolutionary storms of 1S48 added to the distress of his family he found himself penniless on the much-abuse I fare de Paris, which, for all that, has given Lirth to so many great men. Dore's lead pencil now became the only source by which he earned a living. But while he used it pnucipally in drawing Bketches for the humorous papers in Paris, he also devoted a great deal of attention aud labor to the study of his art. Only it must not be believed that he followed the old, Leaten track, and chose a certain master to guide his steps. His eutirely original and in dependent nature did not admit of anything of the kind. His studies, on the contrary, consisted exclusively of Independent observa tions; and, hence, his manner of representing nature and men belongs to him alone. It is a difficult task to describe Dore's talent. At an age when many others just enter upon their arti.stio career, he has ar rived at a degree of perfection, for which many a great master might envy him. His landscapes are bold, fantastic, and yet not un real; his sombre forests have mysterious depths, his gorges in the rocks excite terror, Lis moon-lit deserts with their dense thickets of thorns aud creepers, fill us with awe, aud Lis representations of grand natural scenes with profound admiration. In his paintings and drawings, contaiuing human figures, he exhibits, on one hand, so much grotesque aud often biting humor, that we never look at them without diEoovering fresh ludicrous fea tures in them; and, on the other hand, so much sweetness and loveliness that nothing could Surpass them iu this reapuot; aud, finally, bo chaste and dignified a style that we are almost at a loss to understand how the pencil can have been wielded by the same Land which furnished so mr.ay laughable illus trations to "Journml pour rire." Thus we do not know what we are to admire more warmly in this wonderful wizard; the Originality and perfection of hia creations, or Lis unparalleled productiveness. The first great work which Dire published were his illustrations to the writings of Kibe lais, the first step leading to the pinnacle of the fame which he now enjoys; they were pub lished in 1s5j, and the number of productions which the great artist has issued since then, drawings, sketches, wood-cuts, and oil-paintings, is almost incredible. He himself doas sot know the total number of his works. In 18G4 an enthusiastic English connoisseur ad vertised in the Paris papers that he wished to obtain a complete catalogue of all of Gustave Dore's works. This wish was of comrse imme diately brooght to the artist's notice; but he at that time declared with a shrug tlia,t he was nnuuie to fulfil it, for he himself knew only that he had made from fifteen to twenty thou sand drawings, but he was utterly unable to furnish further details. Truly, a productive ness which renders all myths concerning Rubens more than probable. For all that, Dore, although he has amassed greater wealth than the greatest Uerman painters ever were able to do, has remained the most modest and unassuming mau in the world. Here is a striking example of this trait of his: A few years ago there suddenly aro3e in Paris the rumor that Dore, despite the fabulous number of works which he had finished, had in his desk still another large work, consisting of several hundred sheets. Nobody thought that this could be true; for, although it was generally known that the young artist was almost incessantly at work in his studio, it Beemed utterly impossible that, what with in numerable sketches, drawings, paintings, etc, Which he had already given to the publio, his pencil should have been able to create such an extensive production, lie himself strenuously denied the existence of such a work. Aud yet the voices, which, even in his presence, in sisted on it, could not be silenced, and some one must have committed un indiscretion, for one morning Mame, the great Tours publisher, rushed into his studio, exclaiming: "You have illustrated the Bible the illus trations are mine ask for them whatever you please I" The eoene now ensuing aeema to have been taken from a comedy denials on one side, and assertions to the contrary on the other. Finally Dore owns up everything and even condescends to show the illustrations to the publisher however, only on the condition that M. Mame should no longer talk about publishing them. "You see," he said, "an illustrated Bible, and, moreover, one illustrated by me would regarded by the publio as a downright profanation. Kvervbn.lv v-nnvc flint I m n. child of the world in the full sense of the word. People would, perhaps, forgive me for drawing a saint's picture, but the whole Bible ! Prejudice would frustrate the success of the nndertaking at the issue of the very first number." "But tell me, for God's Bake, when did you do all this f There are upwards of two hun dred sheets here 1" exclaimed Mame. "In my leisure hours, between 12 and 3 in the night-time. Nobody will believe that I aeek and find mv whole creative genius as an rtist ia the Bible. With what sUoata of laughter Tarls would greet the newa thatGa3 tave Dore longs with all his heart for th mo ment when he will not paint anything but re ligious pictures. The limner of caricatures Iu the Charivari paints Madonnas. You eay that it is impossible. I have drawn these en gravings for myself, and not for the publio; I have been at work upon them for ten years, night after night, and whenever I had a spare hour, I made the necessary studies at the Louvre. Look at the drawings; they ar bet ter than anything I have done yet; but you yourself must see that it would be rank folly to publish them as a whole." But M. Mame no longer listened to what Dore was saying; for upwards of an hour he was absorbed in examining this gigantio work, and when he arose he stepped up to the artist and said to him the following words: "Do not screw me up, my dear Dore I am entirely in your power. I must have this work; it would be disgraceful for me not to publish it; ask whatever you please; I shall ruin myself if you insist on it; but these drawings engraved on wood are not worth more than 4 '0,000 frauc3." Dore resisted this tempting offer for mouths; but ho accepted it finally, stipulating, how ever, that the engravings should not be made under his supervision. As he had predicted, both the public and the critics indulged iu EneeriDg remarks as Boon as the work was announced; but as soon as it appeared they lauded it to the skies, aud pronouueed it a great eveut in the history of art. The first edition of three thousand copies was sold before a single copy had appeared in the hands of the retail dealers, and yet each copy costs in France two hundred francs. Ilic Adventures of Some Mielilgtiu Jtoys With General (J rant. A correspondent of the Rochester (N. Y.) press says: During the spring of ISCo I was on detail at General Ord's headquarters, and frequently carried despatches to General Grant. He knew me as one of General Ord's orderlies. When the latter was transferred from the North to the south side of the James river, and operated with General Sheridan in the rout and capture of Lee's army, I was often compelled to ride through the greater part of our own troops before 1 could liud Grant aud deliver my despatches. One morning in April I received gome cap tured letters and orders and some copies of re ports of scouts aud Rebel deserters, and was directed to find General Grant and deliver them to him. After riding several hours I found him between our lines during one of the front and rear attacks which the enemy made upon our left near Diuwiddie Court House. This rear attack produced not a little confusion in our troops. Here and there was hurrying to an! fro, riding iu hot haste, giving and changing orders, taking new positions, or changing front. As yet the firing was desul tory; a few had been killed and several wounded. General Grant, accompanied with one stall' officer and an orderly or two, was assisting the division end brigade commauders in tho suitable disposition of their forces, he having come upon that part of our line soon after these simultaneous attacks were made. . W'hile engaged with these arrangements, three soldiers passed near the General, carry ing a dead man, wrapped in a blanket, from the skirmish line. Grant rode up to them, and ordering them to stop, said: "Who have you here?" One of them replied: "We have the body of our Captain. We are taking it to tho rear. He was just now killed on the skirmish line." They were young men, rather tall and fiae lookirg, and appeared from eighteen to twenty-four years of age. "You remember, my brave boys," says the General, "that the first duty of a soldier, in the hour of battle, is to secure the victory; that acquired, there will bo sutUuient time to care for the wounded, collect the captured property, and bury the dead." "We know that, General," said the ollest, glancing at the stars of the Lieuteuaut-Geue-ral; "but ho was our father, too. Whou we Bet out for the war we all promised our mother and sister that whoever should die, the survi vors would send home to ba buried ou the banks of the Kalania.oo." "It can make but littlo dill'erence to your brave father where his body lies," said Grant, "while the more than Spartan patriotism aud Self-denial of your mother and sister will not permit you to leave the post of duty iu an hour like this." They nodded assent, but were too deeply affected to reply. They laid the body of their lather at the roots of a piue tree which stood near by, aud, half running, half walking, returned to their regiment. Tears glistened in the eye3 of the commanding General as he remarked their earnest, though sorrowful resignation, and he often turned to catch a glimpse of them as they sunk in the little valleys aud rose on the lulls Lurrying back. WUUin lets than two hours the battle for the day was won. The three brothers came nut unhurt. The body of their father was embalmed at City Point, and sent to Parma, Michigan. A little more than a month afterwards, when that part of the army passed through Richmond, the two younger brothers were the junior officers in their father's company, aud the elder was the adjutant of their regiment. Kew Jersey Fossils. At the Scientific Convention In Chicago, a paper has been read by Professor 0. C. Marsh, of New Jersey, on Boine new vertebrate re mains from the tertiary of New Jersey. The specimens described were from the upper green sand bed of New Jersey, which, until recently, had been supposed to be of cre taceous age, like the two lower beds. These fossils form part of a large collection reoently presented to Yale College. One of the most Interesting was a premolar of a new species of elotherium, a genus first described by Powel in lb 17, from the eociue of the Paris basin, aud the same as the entelodon of Ayisard aud Arcbiiotherium, both of which must be re garded as synonyms. Elotherium belonged to the same family, but bad nearer aiiiuities with the cho ropotamus of Cuvier, a peccary-like animal from the Paris basin and the hyraco therum of Owen, a small animal from the eocine of England, tbau with any living forms, ome points iu the structure resemble thecar nivora, but its dentition ami plaiu features show that it nnift be placed iu the snilline family. TLe tooth was the fourth premolar of the left lower jaw, and indicated an animal probably larger than the Asiatic rhinoceros. The elotheiium from France was smaller than the wild boar of Europe, and the remains described by Profes-sor Lei ly, from Nebraska, indicated an animal considerably larger. More recently an iucieor or tooth had been found in California, and very lately other remaius had been discovered in Texas, showing a remarka bly wide distribution in America of an animal rare in Europe. As this Bpecie3 from New Jersey was evi dently new, the speaker proposed for it the new name of Klotlierium Lei. ly amis, iu honor of Dr. Joseph Leidy, of Philadelphia, who had done bo much to make knowu the fossil mammalia of the United States. Another specimen ia the collection was an astrngalus, or ankle bone of a large tapiroid RUiuial apparently distinct from any yet dis covered In this country, and was of great In terest, as America is the laud of tapirs three living species being known here, aud only one in the Old World. This specimen added an other to the fossil forms already discovered here; several species of which have been dis sected. This specimen, as well as the remains of the elotherium already noticed, belong to the pachyderms, once bo abundant in America. In the aame collection were ome very Inte resting cetacean remains as well as other ver tebrates, which the speaker hoped Boon to de scribe, and which would undoubtedly throw much light on the age of the marl deposits in which they occur. Professor Newberry, of New York, made gome remarks upon the New Jersey bed aa being very rich in fossils, ne sketched a fossil tusk or tooth In his possession, which had been supposed to belong to the hippo potamus. Professor Copes remarked upon the disco very of a miocene bed in northern New Jersey. Remains of serpent3 Lave been found in the eocene beds. Fresh water deposits, from the Raritan to the Rappahannock, were noticed. Indian IJelies In Massachusetts. The Springfield Republican says: "In grading the ridge just east of the IIo lyoke depot for building lots, the workmen of Bowers i Washer opened au Indian burying ground on Friday, aud since that time skele tons and relics have been found more or less every day, and the mine shows yet no signs of exhaustion. In all about twenty skeletons have been unearthed, but none of them are entirely complete, and many crumble to pieces on exposure to the air. Some of the bones are those of infants and some of large and full-grown men. The bodies had been buried in a sitting posture with the knees drawn up against the breast and encased in a paste of peculiar red clay or ochre, bo that fre quently the place where a body had been de posited was clearly defined, although it had entirely disappeared, boue3 and all. Ono skel eton, however, was found stretched at full length, and from the great size of the frame and the unusual position, it evidently had be longed to some chief, famous warrior or medi cine man. The soil in which these remains are found is composed entirely of flue sand, deposited there at some remote ago by the Con necticut, which Hows close by. As it ia free from alkalies, the corpses buried in it would remain without decomposition for a long time, and the bones ba preserved intact during a very extended period. This, aud tho fact that it is known that no Indian settlement ha3 ex isted at Holyoke for some two hundred years, gives to the bones and relics a very respectable antiquity. "Buried with these skeletons were fouul a great many Indian utensils, cinament3, aud weapons. The most noticeable of these were the arrow-heads, copper spear points, copper beads made iu the form of triangular prisms, a large dish hollowed out of soups tone, with handles at the sideo and much blackened on the bottom by use in the fire, pipes of the same stone, skilfully and curiously wrought, tomahawks of Hint, Vermillion war paint and generou3 strings of wampum. The habit of the aborigines i3 to bury with their dead all their personal elfecta, in order that they m3y have them in the spirit land, and thus it hap pens that these various articles are found with their bones. The pipes dug up had been buried full of tobacco ready to be pulled by their owners' ghostly lips in the celestial hunt ing ground. As copper is not found in any considerable quantity in this section of the country, it is plain that these Indians must have bartered for their beads Rfd spear heads with the tribes of Canada or the far West, where that metal was plenty, and where, also, the scieuce was known of tempering to the hardness of steel.
