Tbi IoaMi, Biautt op Ahibioam Artists
and thi Old Mastibj. A writer in the New
York Independent has the following:
Our American artists oonoeive a different
ideal beauty from the ancients, or even the
Continental artists, comparatively modern
such as Raphael,. Titian, Tintoretto and others
ootemporaneous.' It ha more of the spirit
uelle, though I will not say less of physioal
beauty. More of the Intellectual, but not at
the expense of the' emotional. I do not say
that they express their ideal as well, or em
body it in a form as perfect. But I think I
basard little in saying it is a higher ideal of
woman than Tintoretto or Titian or even Ra
phael seemed to possess, judging from their
works a higher ideal even than is expressed
in the physical perfeoticn of the Venus de
Medici. It was a natural consequence that
artists, living at a time when the intellectual
oharaoter of women was depreciated, should
bo influenced by the prevailing sentiment,
and so conceive of highest beauty as consist
ing in external form. The American artist,
while he does by no means contemn physical
perfection, . yet sympathising with a nobler
publio sentiment, which I trust pervades our
entire people, oonoeives an ideal of female
beauty where perfection of form is united with,
and secondary to, purity of heart and nobility
of soul. Such ideals, while they are just
toward woman, at the same time do ber honor.
And such, conceptions, embodied in artistic
forms, make painting and sculpture strong
auxiliaries to virtue. -

The following advloe to wives who are In
clined to complain of their husband is given
by Brlgham Young, in a sermon lately deliv
ered at Salt Lake City: '
I will here make a few remarks wbloh I
think will check some of the complaints from
women about their husbands. I acknowledge
that many women know much more than their
husbands, and for this reason the faith and
confidence in them droop; they do not seek to
uphold them In the dignity of their position
and calling. And again, may be the husband
does not magnify his priesthood, follow dili
gently the duties of his calling, and inorease
in the faith of the gospel, as it is bis privilege
to do. He should be the head ot the wife, all
the day long. I will venture to say a little
more upon tbl point. I like to see people
consistent with the wisdom they profess to
have. Were I a woman possessed of great
powers of mind, filled with wisdom, and, upon
the whole, a magnanimous woman, and been
privileged with my choice, and bad married a
man and found myself deceived, he not an
swering my expectations, and I being sorry
that I had made suoh a choice, let me show
my wisdom by not complaining about it. A
woman's wisdom and judgment has failed her
once in the choloe of a Husband, and it may
again, if she is not very careful. By seeking
to cast off her husband, by withdrawing her
confidence and good will from him, she oasts a
dark shade upon his path, when, by pursuing
a proper course of love, obedience, and en
ciurasement, he might attain to that perfec
tion she had anticipated in him. When the
enemy once gets advantage over you, he is
very apt to improve upon it, and to gain a
greater when he has another opportunity.
A Gssdini Mibiiaid in Japam, A corre
spondent in Japan says he has seen a verita
ble mermaid, at least it is so ingeniously put
together that no eye can see the joint. Ho
gives this description of the invention, Id
which it does not appear dangerously seduc
tive by reason of Its beauty: , ,
This animal, it is said, consists of a head,
in shape, size, formation of the eyes and nose,
number, form and position of the teeth, like a
monkey's; of a long, slender neck; of a chest,
having a sternum and several distinct pairs of
ribs. It has long, ape-like arms, terminating
in five fingers, of which the middle one is the
longest and largest On the: head and body,
above the fishy portion, are here and there
spots of fur remaining, like the fur of a mon
key in length and texture, of a browb oolor.
The closest scrutiny that can be given fail to
reveal any traces of the union of tbe animal
and fishy part. Physiologists say that suoh
a union Is impossible; and of the medical and
Other experts, who have examined this mon
ster, some, baffled to discover by eyesight, any
deception, simply rest on this dictum, and
others 1 admit that nothing but a dis
section ean really settle whether this be a most
ingenious fraud or limn nature. For my own
part, I must confess that I oan see no trick,
though it may be one.

The New Orleans Piapm, commenting on the
frequency of murder in that city, says:. We
have of late, in this city, been almost daily
palled upon to record the death of some per
son by the hand of violence. It seems that
difficulties the most trivial are settled only by
the pistol or the knife. A slight quarrel In a
gambling hell, or a coffee-saloon, between
sporting .men a rude encounter between
laborers on the levee, or near the crowded
rooms which they call homes, is followed by a
death-struggle soon afterward in some publio
placej and so frequently have suoh tragedies
become, that they soaroely awake ordinary In
terest. Even the polloemen, in the discharge
of their duties, are now in constant danger of
their lives. Within one week, past, two or
three of the corps have either been killed or
dangerously wounded.

Wayne Township, Ind., and a buxom widow,
having been said to be more lovingly inclined
to each other than the gossiping neighbors
liked, one of them joked him in rough styl
about squeez'ng the widow, which made the
widower angry, and he thus replied: " I
squeeted your wife before yon vr did, and the
' only differenoe I could see between the widow
and her was, that while your wife leaned up
to me like a sick kitten to a hot brick, as
though she loved it, the widow squirmed a

some passers-by separated them. The parties

to presenting considerations whioh might in

if the treaty fails, Juarsi must fail.
The Senate, yesterday, had an Executive
Session on Mr. Faulkner's nomination. When
called up, Mr. Wilson produoed the extract
from Mr. Faulkner's speeob, in which he re
commended resistance to the inauguration of a
Republican President. ' Mr. Wilson urged
that the nomination should lie over until in
quiry could be made Into these sentiments,
saying that ha could never vote for a man who
entertained them.
Mr. Doolittle regarded Mr. Faulkner's sen
timents as treasonable, and would have the
Senate treat them with their condemnation,
Mr. Mason said they reflected the opinions
of Virginia, and also, he believed, of the
whole South.
Mr. Wigfall made his debut in a fierce
speech, promising that Texas would unite
with the South in extremes! measures. He
justified Mr. Faulkner's declarations in every
sense, .

Tbe correspondent of the Timet 'states: Ru

resign to-morrow. The alleged reasons are ill

the real reason is a difference with the Presi

sued by the Administration toward Mr. Doug

been on good terms with Mr. Buchanan. The

Old Senators say there has not been so
stormy an Executive session since tbe rejec
tion of Mr. Van Buren and the attempted re

grew out of the charge brought by Mr. Wilson,

mission, was a disunlonist
; Information was received here to-day that
8,600 men are now in New Orleans, ready to
embark for Vera CniB.
They go out as immigrants, and. will be re

under American officers, such as Generals Ring

The immigrants are to remain as laborers
in constructing this railroad, keeping up,

A Matrimonial Maiiac A Mai Mabet
ia Fodbteen Women. A good story is told

entire figure in tbe way of oourtiog all tbe
girls who would have him, without asking for
any of them to die off, as the law direots. After
having married his thirteedth some of his
first loves osme down upon bim, and bad him
lodged in jail. But a person so fond of liberty,
and who oould get into Hymen's noose witb
saeh ease, found little difficulty in getting oui
of tbe "jug;" and the next news of him be
was running at large, with a heavy reward for
his apprehension. He was shortly recognized
by a gentlemen, who, anxious to get tbe
reward, invited him to his house, desired bim
to sit down called his wife to chat with bim,
as an inducement to detain him there while
he made some excuse fur leaving him a few
moments, and started for a oon stable to arrest
the runaway. What was the poor man's as
tonishment, on returning with the constable,
to find the gay Lothario taking advantage of
his short absenoe had absconded with hie
wife. This made the fellow's stock of wives

: Business witb tbb South. The New York
7ruN remarks: "The Central Railroad of
Georgia, running from Savannah to Macon,
connecting at Savannah with a tri-weekly
line of steamhips to New York, is the grand
freight-oarrying road of the South, and would
be tbe first to feel a falling off of trade witb
New York. The year ending December 1,
1859, showed an unparalleled success the net
earnings being nearly 25 per cent, on the
capital. The month of December, I860, shows
an inorease of receipts over the corresponding
month of the preoeding year cf $25,000; and
the business of the month of January, thus
far, maintains the same advance.. We believe
the Southern steamers never did a better win
ter business than they are now doing. A new
additional steamer is nearly ready to take her
place in the Savannah line." '
Awkwabd Contbetimpt in a Tbeatsb. At
a recent performanre of the Octoroon, at the

who was on the stage, suddenly advanced to
the foot-lights, and pointing U Miss Hattie
Arnold, who was sitting quietly in front,
among , the audienoe, said: "If that actress
don't show some respect to the aotors, and turn
her face to the stage, I shan't go on with tbe
piece. Yes, it's you, I mean; you, Hattie
Arnold!" Great excitement ensued, and severs)
gentlemen determined to hiss the actor off the
stage, but were only prevented by the mana
ger assuring them that the offender should be
discharged, which promise he faithfully kept.
