We can speak from observing this paint
ing, having enjoyed the pleasure of seeing il;
on Monday evenitg. As a work or art it is
superior to anything of the kind we havo ev
er seen exhibited here. Its execution is ex-
lent; there is no da in about it no glaring,'
unnatural coloring but oil has pn air of re-'
olily, which almost makes the beholder ran-;
ry thut ho ia viewing the street of the Um
pire City, not as portrayed on canvass, but as
they ari;. Al the quay is seen shipping ef
every class; in the streets men in processions
and alone, carriages, horses, and everything
that is necessary to make a bustling city.
So complete wo the illusion throughout,
that wo almost felt ahocktd at the want of
gontility manifested by the notables of the
city, in net bowing a rocognitioti, (althaugh
they looked it.) to the crowds to whom they
wero so favorably introduced by the gentle
manly guide; and had wc been at all tired of
our leiaurely walk down street (which would
have beet, imprssible. wilh the many fine

hesitated to hull one of tho cibmen on the

A more stringent liquor law is coming b
fore the Legislature than the Maine law, from
Neat Dov. The bill provides for fifty dol
lers fine and four month's imprisonment for
the first offence; for the second, double the
fine and oneyn.it imprisonment in the State
Prison, for the third, no action is to be taken
against the officers for destroying the liquor.
Common carriers are liable for carrying li
quor contrary to law to a tine for the first two
! offences, and imprisonment for tho third.
It iu thought the bill will be adopted.
