Nothing is so hard for an American to con- !
ceiveas the pecuniary value of good govern
ment, and this simply because he has never
had to pay a high price for it, nor yet felt the
want of it. In Mexico, the extra cash cost ot
their last revolution foots up from four to live
millions of dollars between the two princi
pal combatants, more than there is money
in the treasury to pay. But it we take into
account that but a small portion of what has
been used in provisions, clothing, Ac, has
been paid for by thegovernment, orisiucluded
in this bill, the real cost has been fully ten
millions. And if we add on to this, loss of
productive industry, the property destroyed,
and more, the depreciated value ot property
though insecurity, Ac., the cost of that single
revolution would nc t he less than from thirty
to fifty millions. That is to say, if the Mex
icans could have secured the blessings they
suppose themselves to have obtained, without
going through this process, they would have
been as much richer as we have stated.—
and this gives no compensation tor loss of life
and the demoralization of the survivors.
Any violent overthrow ot government in
those United States, if it w ere possible, how
ever it might eventuate in other respects,
would be a far more costly affair. In Mexi
co, productive industry is at the lowest ebb
in America, at the highest point. Here com
merce and credit are carried to a height un
known w here revolutions abound, simply be
cause of the stablity and security of all
things from unusual risks. It would bo bet
ter for us to pay five hundred million of dol
lars any day than to have one such revolu
tion as Mexico has experienced by the dozen
in the memory of us all.— Phi!.
The lovers of art and the personal friends
of our talented townsman, Mr. W. I>. W ash
ington, will be pleased to learu that he has
sent home from lhisseldori a number of new
paintings. They are to be seen at the resi
dence of his father on E street, and will amply
repay an examination. The subjects delinea
ted are “Entrance to a! astle,' “ 1 he Student,
and “Commencement of the Huguenot \\ ar. *
The last-mentioned picture is ((uite large,
and is not only the most ambitious, but the
best which the young artist has produced.
Portions of \t, in design and color, are
worthy of Leutze, and. a* it wastnrougn me

turn from Europe of the well-know n M ftsh
ington artist, Mr E. Johnson.^ His sojourn
among the art schools of the old world has
been of essential service to him. Me lesrn
from high authority that even in Florence,
the city especially ot art and artists, he oc
cupied a prominent position. lie has taken
a room in the new huildingadjoiuing Brown s
Hotel and intends to spend the winter in
Washington, lu his studio may now he seen
a number of hi9 composition pictures; and
lor due seutnnent, correct drawing, and rich
coloring we have not seen anything to sur
pass them lor many a day. But the facility
with which he uses the colored crayons is
truly remarkable, He gives to his cabtnot
pictures all the finish aud beauty of an
engraving, aud to his portraits an unamtakea
ble character. In delineating the fascinating
charms of a pretty face his power is wonder
ful. •
Mr. Osk. Bessan, though very much occu
pied with his duties as a teacher of drawing
and painting, is still produeiug, occasionally,
some of his beautiful pictures in water colors.

The admirers of the late Judge (’ranch
will find at the studio of his 9011, Mr. John
Cranch, (Adams’s Express Building.) a very
faithful portrait of that eminent jurist and
sage. >Ir. Cranch, the painter, will spend the
