Judge Smilth, of the First (ecorder's Court,
pad a visit to the Mayor on tliday to asoertain if
there were any prospects that the otloers of his
ourt would be paid soon to receive, however,
the usual answer that the taxpayers had not
some up to the treasury to settle. Judge Smith
teplied to tbis that theso were lawn relating to
rhe solietton of taxes, and that it would relleve
his oMoers a great deai if the law wers o.

to the eoeveration, and the Judge walked out of
the palor. with an air of dissatlsfatson, saying

That Remarkable Work of Art Recur
rected In our City.
It may be on aecount of the cosmopolitan
oharacter of New Odleans and the onuaiunt
Iathlerm that our metropolis has almost, since
its settlement, been the haven for those who,
separated from home ties, Journeyed thither for
respite from political troubles and a place in
which to make a livelihood, that the workers in
art and those who considered its value resorted
thither with whatever of value they possessed in
that line.
With this prelude, and with the premise that
artists have hitherto made our city a home when
all other places failed may be accounted the fact
that the recent discovery of a rare work of art
was here made. Some twelve years or more ago
that well known and thorough artistic genius,
Olague, in his wanderings, discovered in a cabaret
down In the Third Dietrict, by accident, a picture
whioh, from the slight view he had of it, he pro
nounced at once to be the handiwork of some
Happening t) drop in the emall room in the
rear of the sailors' bar-room and noticing in an
old frame an oil painting, he with his thumb
wiped off at a dash a small portion of the picture,
revealing exquisitely wrought a cherub head,
which gave evidence of the wonderful skill of the
mnostro, whoever he was, who had composed
whatever was behind the covering of blue paint
so carefully and evidently with a view at hiding
the value of the beauties beneath laid upon al
most the whole surface of the picture. Much has
already been written and said about the beauties
of the
of the highest type of beauty so delicately
wrought by the unknown artist, but like the
crayon in the hands of the puerile artist
words failed to catch the full, truthful grace and
expression so richly portrayed on the canvas.
A DEMOCRAT reporter visited not only the pio
ture, but a number of connoisseurs who bhad el
readv examined it, and the result only confirmed
his first views.
The first gentleman waited upon was Mr. Eng.

You remember Clague. That grand fellow who
knew Louisiana scenery as well as anybody. He
was the one who first called my attention to the
pi uare. You know how he was, strolling about
everywhere, and one day he came to me excited
ly and said: "Ohassagnac, I've found something
that's worth all you've got: There's a
painting down town; I'll show you the
place, that you mast buy. If you have to sell
your piano, y,,ur furniture, your bed, everything;
sell it, for you must not lose this chance."
Olagne wee filed with fervor about the picture,
and urged me again and again to make every
sacrifice in order to secure the painting. I told
Olegue that if this pieture was for sale, and was
so valuable, somebody else would surely fi3d it
out. Olagne's response was, "It ts where no one
will ever discover it; I know that." He theo went
on to say that he had discovered down town in
a picture, ot which he had only seen a small
patch, but which was evidentlyjfrom a master's
hand. Some weeks elaped before I took Olague's

In another part of thin paper our readers will
see an earnest appeal addressed to the citizens
and merchants of New Orleans, as well as to the
planters of L iatsiana, on behalf of the poor or
phans of eat. Mary's Asylum. The poor helpless
waife are in the greatest distress, and the char
itable sisters who take care of them are most of
the time at their wits' end to procure the daily
bread necessary to their suastenance. We hope
that a sympathizing public will come to their aid
and lay up treasures for heaven in holding out a
helping hand to the poor orphans.
