American Artists in Rome*—A letter
from Rome, dated July 21, which we have
been allowed, by a friend of ours, who is
an artist, to read and extract from it a
few passage*, says :
“The Orpheus of Crawford, as you
have doubtless heard, has been purchas
ed bv the Boston Athenaeum. And now
that l am touching upon sculpture, I may
as well add that -the has relief.you all
clubbed to order, will go out bv the first
vessel bound to Boston. Since you left
this place, Crawford's study has changed
its aspect. The Orpheus is roughed out
of a beautiful block of spotless marble.
The little figure you saw him at work up
on, has jusF gone home—but the model
remains, and beside it stand two others a
size larger, and far superior in point of
• invention and execution.
“One is a Cupid, contemplating a but—
| terfly. The other is a irolicksome little
fellow, who is dancing to tho. sound of
music he draws from hislcymbals. There
are no busts, but an ideal head, which
you will see in the next New York exhi
bition. It has already been sent. The
bas-reliefs are growing like spring leaves,
and he has at last brought himself down
I to a method of composition which enables
! him to calculate and study his effect
• thoroughly before he ‘ouches the clay.
“But the greatest step of all, is his new
j group, Ganymede, receiving from Hebe
i the cup and vase of nectar This sub
I ject haso&en been treated, but never from
| the point he has chosen. Every other
artist seems to have lost sight of the feel
ing of sorrow with which Hebe must have
given up to her successor (he insignia of
her dignity. Crawford has made this the
subject of his group, and the sentiment
gives room, as you can rea ■ ily suppose,
to a beautiful contrast between the deep
settled grief of the goddess, and the mix
ed feeling ofsorrow and surprise that sad
dens the face of the youthful Ganymede.
Crawford intends to have it engraved in
outline, together with several others of
his latest composition and you will then
be able to form a better idea of it than 1
could give you by description.
“I horwaldsen is near, nara at vs oik, as
usual. Me talks of returning to Denmark,
hut 1 doubt it. Of American artists we

Drowning a Woman in a Sack.—The
| barbarous custom of drowning woman in
| sacks is s«iil continued amongst theTurks.
j The following is an extract from a letter
from Greece to the Court Journal:
‘*1 must now tell you a very painful
story. Last Sunday fortnight, as l wa»
returning from Therapia, in a boat, (or
caique,) accompanied by my son and a
I foreign officer, we were surprised by the
| boatmen (Turks) suddenly stopping the
caique* and desiring us to be silent. It
J was then about half-past nine o’clock at
| night, and not very bright—but from the
I water and by the rushing of the current,
we could easily discover any boat that
might approach us. My foreign friend
j inquired of the boatmen why they stop
! pen ine Doat/ ine answer was— uu
j you not see that ?—they are drowning a
i woman*” It appeared that the poor
creature had been sewn up in a sack, arid
as soon as our boat was at a distance, she
met a watery grave. The caique in which
she was placed was rowed by three men,
and there were two others sitting in it.—
Our men well knew what they were about
l to accomplish. The affair has caused
much conversation rn the neighborhood.
It is said that a young man, a slave, in the
service of a pasha, whom 1 happened to
know, formed an attachment for the poor
young woman, a white slave of his harem;
their attachment was made know n to him,
and that he immediately dismissed the
young fellow from Ins service, Tne lover
was anxious to regain the favor of his mas
ter, and applied to a nobleman of Con
stantinopie to request forgiveness. The
nobleman, at the desire of the youog man,
most humanely wrote to his roaster.—
File letter was presented, and the result
was, that the pasha, instead of reinstat
ing him in his service, regarded him
sternly, ordered him away, followed him
and directed his head to be severed from
his bodv. In the evening the other tra
gical affair took place in the Bosphorus,
How strongly are we reminded o! Byron
“And the cold flowers her colder hand
contained
In that last grasp as tendeily were
strained
As if she scarcely felt,—but feigned a i
sleep!” :
; Novel resting place.—Thr Rev Mr.
Moffat, Missionary in Southern Africa, thus i
I describes one ofihe luxuries of the desert.—
‘Being ignorant ofthe locality, and not know- j
in® where the inhabitants (Bushmen') might (
be, we made no fire,lest we should be discov
ered, anti we had nothin® to roast. There |
were no trees,and we laydown between rid
ges or hills of deep sand. The wind was cold
and we had little covering, having led the
halfofotir horses knocked up, and with them
most of our carouses. The plan adopted by
Mr.Haen el,a Moravian missionary, in>timilar
circumstances occurred to ine, and like him,
I made a hole in the sand, and buried invselt,
leaving the head out. I soon felt very com
for table, and, exiling the plan, oneol my
! companions intimated mv example, ®nd 2°
under theearib. I ihen told him that the mis*
i sionary who® we were ictiti>iins hi'iuf
once submerged himself in the nnd near the
sea shose, was occasionally disturbed bv hove
crabs approaching him, and lbesq,hi|t faithful
dog kept a distance. My companion asked.
‘And what are we to do, if a lion comet?*
‘We are safe,’ I replied, ‘for he will not ea t
heads when he can get whole bodies.1 This
removed his lears; and I do not remember to
have slept so comfortably during the* whole
journey,in which we had often very sorry ac
commodations.”
