A recent visit to Mount Vernon found the place in a good state of preservation, none of the ravage* of war having extended in that direction. The scouting parties of both armies bave always regarded it as neutral grounds, and never violated its precincts by acts of hostility. The Agent of the Mount Vernon Association remains at tho mansion, and is a bitter secessionist, not having visit- d Alexandria since the war ; in consequence oi the necessity of taking the oath. His wife, however, more loyal or less scrupulous, subscribed to the oath, and is allowed to come to the city for supplies. The house remains precisely as it was four years ago. The same table and blank book tor registering the names of visitors stands in the hall, with the key to tho French Bas. tile, presented by Lafayette to Washington, hanging over them in Its little glass case, and specimens oi wood and minerals above the duors. The agent, with his wife and two or three children, occupy a suite of rooms on the left of the hall, and a few negroes Inhabit the kitchen. In the dining hall are three of Washington's dining tables, an old feeble toned harpsichord, and the tripod and compass with which their illustrious owner surveyed the wilderness of Lord Fair fax’s estate. The stucco of the ceiling representing flowers and sheaves of wheat is in as good condition as could bo expected, and with a little early attention can bo preserved lor many years. In the east parlor is a sofa, a rocking chair, and in the west parlor a ter restrial globe, aud a dim old sketch of a scene before Carthago. Id the library is the original plaster cast of Washington, by Houdon, and a cast of Lafayette. The few books are all of modern production and belong to the inmates of the house, with tho exception of a gray oldjvol ume entitled “An Essay on Fortifications,M with “George Washington" on the fly lea*-. With the book is a letter dated 1798, to Rev. Mr. Fairfax. Up stairs, in the southwest coruer of the mansion, is the room in which Washington died. A fac simile of the bed upon which he breathed hi* last stands in the coruur, and is tho only furniture in the apartment. On the iron back of the tire place are deeply ent the letters “G. W." Throughout the mansion there reigns an (l|J|JIVaaiVU aviliitwgo, uais»%a* vuij U-CCUm of footsteps oa the bare floor; and looking from the dim, time-stained rooms out upon the deserted field-, and unbroken surface of the river, a feeling of loueliness comes over one which no effort can shake ofl'. Without, the gravelled drive is as smooth and clean as when the carriages of the most lordly rolled up to the hospitable mansion, and the lawns stretch down towards their border of trees carpeted with the richest Verdure. The flower garden is tilled with the choicest plants, many of which are in full bloom, loading the air with fragrance. The tomb, so otten described, remains un touched. A lonely “Phaibe" bird has built against the wall inside, and with its plain tive monotonous call is the only thing to break the dead silence of the spot. It is a subject for congratulation that so little ex penso is required to put the premises in as complete order for the reception of visitors as before the war. The fences need some re pairs, the shrubbery requires trimming, and a few vacant places in the flower gsrden might be tilled with plants, but beyond this little remains to be done. The landing place is in perfect order, though the water has become rather shallow, but at high tide will nodonbt be of autlicient depth to permit light draught steamers to land. It is under stood that arrangements are now on foot tor reopening the mansion to visitors, and that in a short time excursion trips to this spot will be regularly made. [from the haticual intelligencer.] A NEW SENSATION IN ART. The Salle des Beaux Arts in the Patent Office, intended as a receptacle for works of art, and which, since the introduction if pol/chromy, has become aj object of such vast attraction, is rap idly accomplishing its noble destiny. The gre t eat portion of those blight pitla s of deepest blue, which visitors g .xe at in wonder and admi I ration, ie now ornamented with mezzo-relievo pictuies in bronze, each of them execoted in the uighest style ot art. atfording a moat glorious 11 iustrat.on of a fact which we have endeavoied from time to time to promulga e that the Amer ican mind is gradually becoming educated in matters of art, aud th it sculpt ire and painting, with the rare sources of iusp.ratl .n which aoou d throughout this beautiful continent, will som form as absorbing a subject of pursuit among Americans as ii did with the inhabitants o Ali ment Greece. This splendid collection of bronze pictures comprises 24 d It'erent likenesses each tlie exact counterpart of the oiigiaal. in •lading that of the late mart; red President, sjrretary rsewara, t>ni i susiue ursse, > ice Aa* ai a Kurr»gut, Generals Grant. Meade, Hancock, Burnside, Hooker Warren. Bank*, Augur, »nd other* no re** dis ingninhed in onr military an uala. To say that tirese ilie-size mezzo-relievos ol onr eminent pub ic men are among the finest work* of art In bronze ever extcutea in this or any other country, would ouvey but a very im perfect idea of the vaiious degree* of oxrel.ence which cluster around each and all ot the*.— There is not a trait or peculiar ity, either promi nent or ha.f discernib e, in ihe countenances oi each individual in this precious constel.atron of illustrious Amtr.csus, wli ch is not faithfully re d.cted in the meiallio ‘‘counterfeit presentment," maxing the whole lace radiant with lilt, as }f every one stood revealed in the pure, oreathing reality of flesh and btood. The project of a ‘National Bronx) Picture Galiery,” a* this stupendous collection i* aptly called, originated with Mr. William Miller oi Providence, Long island, who ha* long been favorably known iu that city for his great zeal and enterprise in all matter* connected with art, especially *s regards works executed in bronxs. Having conceived this idea ol perpetuating in durable brass the features or those great men. whose name* have become a household word wherever love ot country is rherished and pa triotlsm is honored, he eeguged the servlets of franklin Himmons, an emineut sculptor, of Port land. Maine, whose high reputation for original ity and cultivated taate was a sure guaranty that the enterprise would be carried out suc cessfully. By preconcerted arrangement with the rate President and members ot his Cabinet. Mr. himmons was not oug in obta.ning llle sitUngs from the most prominent pnblic men in Washington, especially ss his peculiar sys tem or modelling entirely relieves sitier irom all unpleasantness as regtid* to at titude or position. The success which attended these preliminary efforts hid the eflect of bracing up Mr. Miller's energies, and he at once detarmined to visit every corp d’armee, re gardless of exp.Lse, trouble or privation; the re sult ot this indomitable pereeve.an.e is already seen in the collection now on exhibition at the client Oflice, wnieh. f -r grandeur of effect, and polish in execution, surpasses anyt ag of the kind the couutry h.sever seen. It is the inten tion of Mr. Miller, the propiletor, ss well as pro Jsotor, of thi* magnificent bronze gafery as som as the most prominent military and naval chief Uins, living and dead, shall have been me all Cilly d scored of. to obtain models of the most datinguiUit-l governors, senators and statesmen oi tha lime, thereby transmitting to posterity the festures of every man who, in tha terrible civil conflict from which we are jnit emerging, wheth er in <h - field, on the seas or in the arena of po litical debate, has signalized hima.-lf by unswerv ing devotion to the great cause of his eonn try- __ Gov.

The Name of Illinois.—A ccteaporary •»ya the name of the Sute of Illinois orlgi. nated in tnis manner ; “ A party of Frenchmen set out upon aa exploring expedition down tha river, wUeh they afterward named, proriding tkammtfm with hark canvass, and* relrinj 2 their existence upon the gata,“ ThaTruZ at the confluence ot this river with the MU. a aaippi, an island thickly wooded with Uaefc walnut.

They louuge or sleep throng their mornings, parade the streets darlS the afternoon, and assemble in filroiosm companies of their own and the other m to pass away their evenings.

The appeal has met with the oik proval of General Dana, commanding Use Department, who assured the delegates at' Burwell considers these propositions to be self-evident: •‘1. That forcible resistance to or attack on an established, and, of courae, supreme Government, can be met and repellc-d by force only. Force must be, and of necessity always will be, met by force. If the foes U a Government claim the right to assail U la any part, by arms, the friends and subject* of th»t Government have a right, and It U their duty, to defend it with arm*. •‘2.
