Mabeid, April IT, 1M7.
This is Holy Week, and coase^tjenlly there are no
amusements In Madrid. The opera and the theatres
are closed, gven thq circus Is not open. Business is
slin6et Completely suspended. The worst of it is that
there is no cathedral here, and we are deprived of the
religious prooesslons sad ceremonials which would take
the place of more profane entertainments. Tbouanhds
of people have left the city for Seville, where the
ceremonies are of the most elaborate character,
and when the greatest buU light given for
many yean will take place on Easter Sunday.
Those of us who remain at Madrid walk about the
Puerta del Sol, gossip at the Cafe Suizo, go to church
and are much bored. To strangers the guard mounting
st the palace every morning and a lounge at the mag
nificent museum of pictures fill up the time agreeably
enough; but the resident; tygre literally nothing to do
I unUl live o'clock in the afternoon, when all the world
goes to drive on the Prado.
Here Is a daily spectacle unequalled in Europe. The
Park st New York, Rotten row at London and the Bols
de Boulogne at Paris give one but a faint Ides of the
Prado st Madrid. Every resident of any note keeps his
carriage, no matter how much he may stint apd starve
at homo, and all the carriages are to be seen on the
Prado every floe afternoon. Some of the equipages we
superb; the horses as splendid as thSSS at Lon
don; the liveries as gorgeous as those at Pant. The
drive is a very short one, and all the turn
outs are thus crowded together and make
a most imposing display. The ladies are
In foil dram; the gentlemen wear their best costumes.
On either side of the carriageway are spacious proms-* |
nadee, and It is the fashion to quit the carriage after
half an hour's driving sod walk up and down. The
most splendid robes sweep the ground; the charming'
mantilla la universally worn in lieu of Parisian bonnets.
Imagine the audience at the opera promenading In a
garden and yen will realise the soene on the Prado. The
Queen and the Prince Consort follow, or lead this fashion.
Every day they walk up aad down, arm in arm, attended
only by a single equerry and raoogntsed only by a gen
eral lifting of hats. The Queen drawee In black and
wears a laoe mantilla; the Prince Consort appears in or
dinary morning oostume. Her Majesty Is a stoat, wall
prewar red lady, aad bows blandly ta the right aad left
as aha paaaaa along. Her Wet em. or rather the atstors of
the Pliooe Consort also drive out daily aad are qalls as
nibble. One may ana the entire royal family on the
Prado every afternoon, aad If yoa are a foreigner yea
have only ta lift your hat to receive a special bow from
Evidently Her M^Jeety has no oonoeptloa whatever of
her unpopularity, and fancies that she reigns by divine
right aad not by tne will of the army. The reoent in
surrection has taught bar nothing, and yet that insur
rection was only suppressed by sa accident. The artil
lery aad Infantry barracks flank each other, and are
both within a stone's throw of the palace. The artillery
men ware to lead the revolt, aad at a certain signal the
infantry wan te Join m the m$Ue; but that signal was
not properly given, and the result was that the infantry,
not knowing which aide ems to win in the Bgbt,
tamed against their friends in the artillery barracks, sad
summarily squeicfaed the revolution. Since then the
government has carried mettsre with a high hand. The
Presidents of the Senate and Hovso of Deputies were ar
rested, aad all the deputies who dared to vote for a reso
lution regretting those arrests wore made, were at onoe
deprived of the Judgeships sad other o(flees which they
happened to hold. The reaaU is that another
insurrection is being planned, sad everybody outside
of the government knows that the data for
this new rebellion is fixed between the 8th sod 10th of
July next. Revolutions in Spain are very curiously con
ducted. first, the time Is fixed sad announced, and
than the preparations are made. The soldiers are the
only rebels; for, in the ordinary ssaoo of the term, there
are no people la Spain. The country suffers, no matter
which party mar win. As yon dnvo through the streets
of Madrid, yon see bosses pitted with holes made by
cannon and musket balls. Nobody takes tbe trouble to
eflbco these evidences of civil strife. The resSdsaos of
tha American Minister la decorated In this way. On the
one head the greatest extravagance Is observed; on the
other the greatest poverty prevails. Of an the oountnee
of Europe Spain is the meat remarkable; bet to see It la
all tta glory, yon mass go Into the Interior, frenchmen
and French influences an gradually transforming Madrid

Legation, wn? compromised the American legation
10 r^ny ways most obnoxious to the Spanish. I speak
thoa positively because I have the official documents
before me and becsnas I hear Utile else in Madrid bat
scandal about the legation. The official documents show
that Mr. Perry, by royal decree,' has obtained e grant for
n submarine telegraph cable to the Canary Islands.
Snch s grant to only bestowed upon individuals for
fhvora received or expected; and what right baa a
Secretary of Legation to pat himself In n position where
he oan be charged with osing his official powers to
further his privet* fortunes f Again, there has
been published in all the papers a petltioa, signed
by Mr. Perry and presented to the Cortes, in
which he begs for protection against competition In re
gard to this cable, and the obvious comment is that our
Secretary of Legation to prostituting his official position.
I believe that It to contrary to the Constitution for one of
our diplomatic representatives to accept and beg for
favors from foreign governments for his own personal
emolument; bat at any rat* it Is contrary to etiquette
and common sense. Secretary Seward has been Inform

So intimate a connection between the American lega

government a very poor opinion of oar diplomatists, and
this opinion has been strengthened by other develop
ments. The Spanish government to In want of money,
and consequently keeps n sharp lookout upon the cus

are permitted by courtesy to import the necessary arti

state that their attention having been called to the nu

tents examined and measured, and the same goods wore
traced in a few dsys afterwards, to shops and ware
bouses here in Madrid, where they were exposed for
publlo sale, thus defrauding the Spanish revenue.
This is smuggling under the seal of tha Amerloaa le
gation. It Is worse?it Is precisely equivalent to the
meanness of a person who would visit a gentleman's

production. Such names as Church, meritedt, MoEntos,
JobiiMQ, KmmU, Clifford, Thompson, mmi others
well known in art circles are represented la paintings
and sculpture, and reflect credit upon our oonntry. The
limited apace allowed oompelled too gentlemen of the
committee to disappoint many clever artists In selecting
the plot a res which should best represent American art;
bat there can be no doubt but that the arduous and dell
duttea of the committee of Now York gentlemen
**** 5*,1. wl(* successfully performed. The selection
was excellent, and, for the number of pictures, perfect.
I* W*s generally supposed, indeed assumed, that
American art should bo ropreaontad by thta selection of
the bast works of the meat talented artists of America.
If It had been wo should have no reason to grnmble or
feel ashamed. But imagine the result when Mr. Beok
witb, Commissioner General, commenced by placing in
the gallery some paintings or artists, who, if they were
known at all to toe world, were known only as artists of
oommon merit. Yet be took upon himself the rospon
albttlty of planing fifteen or more pictures in ths gallery,
which was barely large enough for the works
of artists who could) safely stand a compar
ison with the best artists of Europe. Mr.
Hunt is n portrait painter of ability. He was allotted
?pace for a large, full length portrait of President Lin
coin. That did not appear. In lti place he has placed
his head of Mr. Lincoln, and created a regular sensation.
If Mr. Hunt desirad to paint a swarthy, scowling, igno
rant border man he could not have succeeded more bril
liantly. The outlines of the martyred President's face
and bead are preserved, but the color and expression of
bis fhee are mors like n Jay hawker In Arkansas than
thoae of the amiable President. Those who knew the
President shudder while they smile at ths portmlf, and
foreigners who gaze upon It shrug thsir shoulders la be
wilderment. and walk quickly off.
Now, such n picture should not hnvo boon placed
In ths Exposition. When we reflect that the same
artist, through J|ft Peckwlth, has aleven otbar portraits
Xw tfgofM IB ths American gallery, or nearly one-twelfth
of the entire exhibition, we wpnder why It is.
There are pictures, also, admitted by Mr. Beckwith.
which are painted by artists not only now unknown and
unheard or before, but who art likely to remain un
known where art Is truly represented la the future.
May, of Parti) has sent a very olever piece from Lear,
and Colonel Charles T.Dix has a marine piece whioh is
exceedingly creditable. It la Skar Islands, in the Eng
lish Channel, and the water, atmosphere and rooks are
handled with great skill and effeot.
The other pictures brought in by Beckwith are fright
fully bad, and destroy the effect produced by the genu
lae works of art.
The artistic Beckwith says, In response to e protest
against receiving some daub by a pupil of an artist
friend of hie, "Oh, It Is only a fisher boy. Put it in
the oorner anywhere. It is a good painting. Hunt says
It is a good painting, so put it In." Ths picture takes
up almost as much room us the largest figure place In
the gallery. ffisatmsn Johnson, McEntee, Keaaett and
artists or that rank are shoved Into ths pamage way,
in order that Miss Smither's or Miss Jones' or Mr. Rob
inson's, who happen to know Beckwlth's friends, may
hang In the main room and dwarf American art, and
bring upon It uneeru and contumely.
All this is most to be regretted. Yet It all results from
the appointment of a man to the high and responsible
po-ltion of Commissioner General who has not brains
enough to fill an bumble offloa In tbo commission.
Ths credit of all this may be ascribed primarily to the
hue Minister oT the United States whose appointee he Is,
who recommended htm to the plaoeand secured his
appointment. Mr Btfalow certainly left one of the
most unsatisfactory and discreditable legacies he could
Mve bequeathed when he saddled an Englishman on ths
United States as Onmmlssioaar General.
The Preach Jury passed through the gallery yester
day and expressed great admiration of the landscapes on
exhibition. The Jury is composed of the first artiste of
France, and to extremely critical In tin examination. It
wilt give.another vlait to thla department before it ren
der* its decision, whioh cannot be known before July.

deep attention and earneet interest of her hearers, eager

losing n single word of the musical, expressive lan

something more than mars fashion. The unconscious
looks of horror and pity at her fearful remorse and heart

only arise from ? true appreciation of her wondrous
powers. A night at ths French theatre, with Rlaiori as

carries hope and fame to England's greatest post, and
the other death and rain to the too presuming Leicester;
the treachery, equivocation and Ingenious sophistry
with which she attempts to cloak bar complicity In the

defiance which she burls to Spain as she raises ths

materially from the style of hia previous works, which
lie calls "The Lake and the WUdannaa " It ? a oompo
aitioa rather lhaa a transcript, though of oouree made
up from actual studies. The period of the /ear repre
sented Is the autumn, when the woods are glowing with
the gorgeous tints peculiar to that season in our climate.
Unusual boldness Is exhibited In the treatment of the
subject; but although the oontraats of oolor are as vivid
as the/ can well be rendered, such admirable harmon/
pervades the whole that the e/e continues to dwell upon
them with the moat lively satisfaction. In the handling
of the sk/ and water we find the same subtle manipula
tion. We have in It all the strength and delicacy whioh
are the characteristics of this artist. What Is most to be
admired in a work of suoh brilliant effeots is the entire
absence of confusion In the details?a difficult thing
to arrive at in a landscape in whloh variety
and richness of tints are the principal ebleets aimed at.
M. Glgnoux seems In this charming picture to have de
sired to show that, like some of his French contem
poraries, such as Dies, he ooald run not with the con
tents of his palette, without damaging his reputation
for careful and well considered treatment.
We are glad to see that this gentleman Is receiving at
the bands of the Paris critics the full tribute of admira
tion to which his merits entitle him. His Mount Wash
ington, the work which ho has on exhibition there, is
one well calculated to please foreign connoisseurs, lis
extraordinary boldness, both of subject and handling,
being something unfamiliar to the European schools.
