Vs.ki.ts works first, because tbe ?bjectofl.il large picture, N',. lu, "The Child's 'asaage t?> Paradis?-, ' is of hi.-li ... t aal ?a and is rested after the clauio manner. He liai a tine aient as well as great periev_re_ce, and tins work bow a much study from printi after tlie good old M-turea. The composition is graceful!.' and skill ally made oat, and the general tone ol the picture agreeably quiet. The drapenea particularly are uucb better than those laths tiesh, which is too all of cru?le color ; all ,tl,e e-tremitiei, including ?**aes, fingers, toes ai d aiti.ulationa ore t?o red, or oo crude a red. Yet there- is great honesty in the ?ainting t'ironghoat, good apprcciaticn i>. just and ippmpriateform, and wo do not know an artist ii fce country who ould bave treated tho subject in arge with more grace and delicacy of feeling lowcver, we are not sure that thia is Mr. Peele s ?roper walk in art A few years ago, when he produced i is " dewing %m\" he became popularly known from that work ; be held was open, he had made a bit, and we hink ougb.. to have Mowed up that class of sub teta. And, however gratuitous this may seem on >_r part, we have no do.M tNe trill yet Teel the ?ruth of the remark. No. ' ?, '? The drink of Milk " a a subject bettor chosen, because the artist could Ave nature to illustrate every part cf it. and be? taue tbe more nature he puts into a picture, the Bore successful it M ill be In this also, there is the mtrodortion of tbe same crude red colors in the lash, and particularly in the extremities. The It-tire with the cow in the middle distance is painted with eoors t"0 .?uaitive. The treatment tt itt whole pi?**t_re* wanta gradation, aad conee **..r.*_y has no ati*<v??r>hcre, or at best a very poor uae. Hext in order among the highly classic and mor ?I futures, comes No. : r.\ 'The Cup of Cold ?Va? ler, or the Child's Lesson on Charity, by D. Bw TloGTOS. This is a much more pretentious work lian Mr. 1'eal?- ? : lint, because it comes from the Easel of a long practice. Artist, wl.o is acquainted bj aeveral visits to Europe, with nil the works so _g-ly prized in those countries ; and becaus. i: at teanpts to exemplify one of the highest, if there be ?r* higheat, among cardinal virtuei. If a human king were -J'ing of thirst, and that extremity of ?_fe .np were relieved by a cap of cold, or even a moderately cool water, hi*, or ahe, who adiaiaii tared it, might be comidero I as having done an Mt of charity. But aimply to give a person a "cup f/cold water, ' who dou't look particularly dry, to-ld seem rallier a feeb'.e Lss.n in so great a *_rtae.

No? Ml. "New? from the Gold Diggkgi,' by ?V. 8. Mot st. Before thi? little picture we pauae with aome degree of pleasure. An earnest love or Nature, so fa? f s the a ti?t understands her, is lisplayed throughout, and the charm of the work tea in the delineation of common charactera that isve fallen in hi? w?y. It it a very natural scene ?such as might hare occurred anywhere about tbe -ountry during the gold excitement. The acces? iones have more to do with telling the story than ho fToupirig of the lirrures or the i xprestion o heir faces. Perhaps tbe happiest piece of paint ng ia it is the free an?) hat of the negro, which has ill the air of a lur-cesiful copy from Nature. One eaaon doultless is, that the artist, who leemi to aossess little or no faculty f..- color, had in t ai in tance fewer difficulties to overcom--. the flesh be ng brown, and hence his greater apparent success. rhe artistic treatment of the back-groan! ia that o ?-noranc-or inexcusable e centricity. Forinatance n the wi 11 which forms th.. be k-ground, there i? an ?pen door, and beyond are indi, ?tions of aaky and liatant scenery, done with so nearly tbe ssme tone ind kind cf colors that it i? entirely confounded with tl.e wall, whi, h ia a dull, monotonoua gray, lut in nature the aky seen through such a wall, un? ter any circumataicei would be luminous if not ?right. There ii a good deal of natural happy ex? pression in the painting of the face?. But the ?bole picture i? rtjillcslly deficient both in color tr.d chiaro senro, tie Istter being uniformly dull ind without gradation, while the flesh is either red ind hard or else chalky. As rejrariis tcllin_- the itory, this is n? t etna! to ?everal of Mount? earlier a-orh?, among which we cite the "Bargaining for t Hor?e," a? one of the mo?t ?ucceaiful. Thi?, if ?S remember with accuracy, had a uniform excel ence in almost every deiirable quality. Of late ear? Mr. Mount ? worse hsve fallen oft'both in ex icution and epicTaraatic power, and he would do veil to return to that ainipli- ity of nature which lid so much for him in the beginning of his career. No. Ml is a "Market Scene by Candlelight," by '. Von 6CHISDEI.. painted perhaps in Belgium, or it contain? all the academic conventionalities ?f the schools there in vogue- You do not need he catalogue to know what it ia : it is to all intents ind purposes a market scene and nothing else. The roerie is iu a European city where, as a matter o xiurje, the public square is a market, and where you might at almost any time find women congre? gated, standing or seated near tables. But to make it anmistskable what he intend? to repre lent, Mr. Von Sehende! has covered the table with ?ej-etablet and other objects of traffic, and has in iroduccd a burning candle, ilia moat careful efforts ire next devoted to theie ai principal agents in le'llng hii story. Apples, csrroti, onions, cab ?age?, Ac. all have their peculiar texture?, forms ind colors imitated to a degree which makea the ndividuality of each distinct and unmistakable. The next important thing ii the candle ight. The fidelity and car? beato wed upon the mitation of this, is only equalled by the scientific mowledge brought to bear in ita execution. Here he truly prolcucd artiat woked doubtless with a lecurtty derived from a consciousness of his insight nto the philosophy of Nature. He knew that all lame is hollow ; that its volume is re und, that its ixtcrii.r surface i? lets hot than its center, that the .latenter the heat the wl iter the flame . and con lequeially that at the eye advaucea ou the ?urface toward the edge, it perceives a bue more yellow than that in the ceDter, because it i? le?s heated.? At the lower edge there are two or tnree touches uf pure blue and white, intensifying that portion, but not darkening it, because the nature of blue ia to transmit much rf the light It receivea. The radia lion from the volume of flame is manage, with so 'reat skill tiiatwepronout.ee it the finest rcpre lentation ol candlelight we have ever seen. There s a difference between the -?uality of light upon ibe objecta illuminated and thst of the soarce of illumination, which i? not sstistsctorily accounted for by the text .?res and qualities of the objects. In this respect the picture is slightly false. The jel'ow? at-d red?, no matter to what degree they are wo.-!;tied, appear with their maximum of witiuth 'rom beisg suncunded by the cold ??ray Une pcrvkiiiug the sky and building?. Tbe heads Mrs we',I drawn, without having eith-.-r character >r beauty but yet they are agreeable becaaae ;hcy possess a degree of symmetry. The oolor of he flesh ?s bad, and has in ik? degree whatever the mitation of its peculiar qualities, aa contradiitin ?ciihed from the qu-itiri of i &.toU, cabbagej aud ipplrs The draperies ai.d other a. o?ai.?.-.os ara tainted evidently from ??ture, with cat? as to orra ar-1 u_||i|i gradation : indeed, much of the rtatv??? re power of the picture i? due to this last. lamed quality. We have spoken at connderable ?tfl?*? upo a thi? jkrture BM two reasons firat, because it hat met rrtth anivertal commendation, for wc have acaree".y ipoken to a person who pretends to cjnaotieur ihip about th-.? cxliibitioa who did not regard it as i he chef .1 ?... of the collection ; next, becaus-i it i a fair iilustration of ?oui?of thelswi of c-itxism re laid down in oar Third Art-?.?.

Living fleah, of all oV ( pets in Nature, is perhaps the hardestto reproduce. I erauic* it lui a bue imparted by the heat which t nimates it, which renders its imitation exceeding- a r duraVui't. In this respect Mr. Von Sehende! | lakes an entire failure. But with all the ex- c ellett painting in his Market Scene, there ia p ot an idea in it above the range of car- f At, applea, cnion?, cabbages, and candlelight, a or any evidence whatever, that the artiat, in his C hole life, hss had an idea above tbe imitation.

The artii uses every variety of material, from men, womei rhildrei, trees, moun ains, aky, architecture, an mais, down to pigments, oiis, varnishes, and a scor of mediums with <,uack names, merely it wool seem, to employ hints?

Tne n-.-w and peculiar, rather than original ?tj.eo: ?hematic, together with the remarkable dramatic and ?cenic effects which he knew how to employ, secured for thi? opera an mmediate ?nd permanent run at the French Acad? emy of Muiic, where it wu brought out and where it it to this day a prime favorite i the resident at Parii thii Summer will tee it every two or t'iree week? announced in the bills of that establishment where, if we are not mistaken, it has been per? formed above f ur hundred times. At the other principal theaters of Europe it bas been similarly fertunste, and though tl e cri'ici ?re ?till in dispute concerning it? merits, the public generally exhibit no doubt a? to it? attractiveneu. After the great lucccu of " Kobert the Devil,' Mi j -;rl?eer was in no haste to repeat the experi? ment. He w?i careful not to risk the repu'ation he had acquired, and accordingly it was not till - I tint he brought cut " The Huaruenots, also stthe Acsdemy of Muiic,or (irand Opera. Every ( ?re which the fastidious taste snd unequalled tuanagtment of the composer could suggest was taken to ensure a triumph for this new work. Meyerbeer is in hit line even a greater master of drsmstic preliminaries than Barnum in his, and nothir.g was now omitted. The Huguenots proved ?ucce??fu!. Still the piece ha? never been ao pop? ular as "Kobert the Devil, and the critics have almost xx im unanimity assiijned it a lower place ai a work ef art. Though tbe libretto, as in that opera, it from the admirable pen of Scribe, and thus far superior in dramatic unity and the gradual and forcible development of the itory, to the mat? of op?rai, though it aboundi in effective ?cenos ami striking situations, the composer has failed to keep the interest of the music up with that of the nar? rative, as well as to lend it that variety which by contrast render? every part freshly impressive. Meyerbeer s music is characterized by German ?ombemess, ?okmtity. and conttant use of har? monic effects on the one hand, combined with a certain brilliancy of melody and ornament, which belongs rather to the Italian School, on the oilier. Of these two qualitie?. the former sueros more natural to him?more hi? own. In Robert tb? Devil there are chorda which wierdly shudder thrruab the soul of the listener like s fatal spel| fiom which it is impossible to eacspe while over thst infernal harmony flit and flicker?like sunlight TJrott ? volcano??Irarge, aweet gleam? ot ?ound, sometimes gathering into delicious gushe? of melod*., which onre enjoyed, cannot be torgotten. '? The Huguenoti'" being altogether a matter of tfci? earth, could not offer ao fruitful a theme for either the muter of icenic or of musical effect? And yet there ii no want of opportunity for both. The ?tory is briefly ai follows : Raoul de N'angi?, a xourg Hueuenot nob!-man, is celebrating, with St. Bi is, Never? and Staat Catholic?, the peace late? ly coscluded between the two partie?. In the courte of the f?.?t:vitie?, be recount? hi?p???ion for a lady, whoae nsme he does not k* ow, but whom he once rescued from ?ome a??ailant?? only to lose sighto*' her a'terward. Marcel, his ?errant, an old soldier, ar.d a fanatical Huguenot, enters. He is cal'ed apon to ling, an.l pour? forth a fierce bat? tle song, which shows that he is no party to the peace.

A ge-tlcman who waa at Coney Island at the time of the storm, informs ua that there waa no rain there. The wind blew with great violence. On hia return to the City he had paaaed over five miles of the road before he met with any signa of rain having fallen in any considerable quantity. The roof of the large carpenter's shop, built and occupied by Mr. Uuinn, 90 and M Pacific it near Smith, Brooklyn, wu blown entirely ?J-, and the ra?? ra and roof iu a ?__Ul body deposited on tlie oppoii." tide of the itrcet, it carried with it a por tie-n of the front brick work from one end to the other of the baikling in tho form of a half moo m the length of the factory. The building wat thrne stories brick, _0 by 3. feet, and resembled a large factory. There waa bot one person in it at the time, and he escaped uninjured. A lad. on hearing the crash, ran out of so adjoining building and had both his legs broken by the fallin. timber. The root was thrown to a distance of sixty feet and injured a frame building on the opposite aide to the amount of at least .1.0. The windows were broken in and the front otherwise injured. Upon the Heights, in Sands, Washington aud other streets, many beautiful abade treea were se? riously broken and in ure.l. In front ol the Sands it. M. E.

Hundreds of people were were within the same number of yards, bet no one came to their assistance aave a colored man attache.1 to Mr. Stsveaa's yacht, laying near the terry.
