The Republican says: Nos. 15 and 16,... .These are the bronze horses of Mr. Clark Mills one standing in Lafayette square and rode by General Andrew Jackson; the other in the Circle, at the West end of Pennsylvania avenue, and rode by General George Washing ton. Some time in the year 1849, in duced by, the promise of genius on. the oart of Mr.;Mlfi. and1 the exhibition by .- l f t I -I 1 him of a miniature equestrian statue of General Jackson, in which the horse was made to stand rampant on, his hinder feet, a number of prominentand patriotic citizens, friends and admirers of the General, formed themselves; dnto body, called the V JackHOn1 Monument Associa tion." These gentlemen subscribed $12, 000 to enable Mr. Mills to carry out his design, and to them we are indebted for the equestrian statue of Jackson in La fayette square. A little foundry nd studio combined were erected just sduth of the treasury, and there Mr. Mills worked with ma chinery of the most primitive kind. His mean were Bjiiajl;jund Jkfe certainly de serves praise for his perseverance, if for nothing else. Three different resolutions ero .introduced, . into Congress, .appro priating fatJohi capturpcf at ynrious times to supply him with hietal. "In one of these resolutions "the guns captured at Pensacola by General Andrew Jack son " were ordered to be delivered to Mr. Mills for his equestrian statue. The work was set up and uncovered with con siderable ceremony, the address being made by Mr. Stephen A. Douglas General Scott and several other officers being present in uniform on the 8th of January, IH.i.i, , iUe poising ot tue Horse on his'hindcrYeef, for which" ho greater achievement in art was claimed at the time, was simply a question of mechan ics, , ThiJ Government voted $.1,000 fora RuitaMd pedestal:' and in March; 1853, also voted $:i.000 "for the purpose of completing the pedestal of the equestrian statue of Andrew Jackson, in Lufayette Square, and the erection of a suitable iron railing around tho same." Mr. Mills urged that he had been in sufficiently paid for his work; and the Jackson Monument Committee very gen erously proposed to relinquish all interest in the. work, to the Government, provided Congress made'the artist nh additional ap propriation of $20,000. This Congress Rtrreed to do: and by section 18 of the Civil aiiif Diplomatic Appropriation bill, asseff March 18M, the " President ol the United States " has placed at his dis posal " the sum of $20,000, to enable him to comuensnte Mr. Clark Mills for the execution of the equestrian stntue of Andrew Jackson, recently placed upon the public square in the city of Wash ington, north of tho Executive Mansion, and to make the same the property of tho United States; and that the suid sum be paid under the direction of the Presi dent out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appropriated, when a clear and satisfactory title to the said statue shall be vested in the United States, pro vided that the sura of $10,000 thereof be vested for the family of the said Mills, and after his death to be given to such children of the said Mills as may survive hiin." '" On March 31, 1851, an appropriation of $500 was made for completeing the pedestnl for the statue of Andrew Jack son. 1 ne wnoie amount paiu nv ice Government, inclusive of the metal, was $:W,500. This statue weighs fifteen tons, the hind parts of the horse being of Solid metal; The Jackson Monument Committee were given a deed of the ground on which the statHe stands, which it is said they still hold. ' ' i Congress seemed to be well pleased With this effort of Mr. Mills, and in such great haste to do justice to what it con sidered genius of an extraoydiuary kind, that on the 25th day of January, 18.VJ, it namiod a Joint Resolution, setting forth that the sum of $50,000 be and is here by appropriated, to enable the President of the I nited States to employ Clark Mill, to erectn the city o( ashington, a colossal equestrian statue of George Washington, at such place on the public grounds in aid city a shall be desig nated by the rre&iueni oi me i mu-u States. In addition to this, Congress voted cannon for the metal. .Mr. Mills deserves (treat credit, for bis perseverano wilt m V dt'wiod; but hi contributions to art, if they can be called by that aajna, ure not such as 11 give bim a nig position among the sculptors of the. country. ,lhe stran ger in Washington looks for, and'ryry naturally expects to nna we capital city of so (front and wealthy a nation as ' ours, the very best example of American j 4 it WAV da nttotttjonert wneieer : we' slave a rijrht tn tonfne and perplex I his mind by merely savin? that our best i artiiU are not represented here, and that their works are only to be found in 1 the powession of private gentlemen. .aecrlraa RrtKaaa'a-A ftfcak,. lag Mary. , , , A horril.le story of Tiriandacereachet oi from Chili i Lagooeron, a notorious bandit capui". - c'r'r!

The officer in command of the troops re solved at first to starve the bandit out, but after two days' blockade grew weary of so tedious an expedient, impro vised an escalade of the chieftain's stronghold, and succeeded in cap turing him. To their horror, upon entering the cavern, they found the poor woman in a dving condition, Lngoberon having cut off one of the breasts of bis unfortunate captive and eaten it. The inhuman butcher wa conveyed toTalca, where-he was promptly tried and con demned to die on the garrote. lie was speedily conducted to the scaffold, and while the executioner was engaged in udjuBting his ioUette de mart the con vict drew a whistle which he had con cealed in his pocket, and blew it sharply; whereupon about sixty of his followers, who had introduced themselves among the crowd surrounding the scaffold, rushed upon the gendarmes and mas sacred them ere they could offer Bny re sistance.. They then freed their chief and garroted his would-be executioner, after which they escaped, almost un scathed, to the mountains, facilitating their flight by seizing the horses of the murdered gendarmes. They also car ried off several women from the throng, gathered to witness the execution. JAPAN. Attempt to AsanaNlnate . Ntatea ton ill. m lulled From the Japan liaiotte, March 31. The evening before lust we mentioned that a telogrum had been received in town to the effect that an assassin entered the bedroom of Col. C. O. Shep ard, tho United States Consul in Jeddo. The following particulars we learned too late for insertion last evening: Colonel Shepard resides in the Jeddo Hotel, his flagstaff being put up in the hotel compound, lie occupies one of the wings up stairs, to which there is no direct staircase from below, and to which a greater length of passage has to be traversed than to many of the sleeping apartments, besides a turn in the pas sage having to be made. A man in the dnrk, therefore, could hardly arrive at his door without special design. It hap pens also that Colonel Shepnrd locks his bedroom door at night. There are two keys, one of whirh he keeps to lock him self in; the other is kept by his Japanese boy to let himself in when he calls his master in the morning. It appears that Col. Shepard was awoke and fancied he heard the noise of the lock being turned and the door opened, but so uncertain was he as to whether it was really a noise or only a dream that an instant after he was asleep again. It was quite dark, and although an intruder stepped noiselessly into the room, he stumbled on a pair of boots just inside the door, and thus fairly roused the Colonel, who jumped up in bed and demanded "Who's there?" He then seized his pistol, and the man ran out of his room. He followed, how ever, and, dark as it was, perceived by the sound of his feet that the man was running along the passage to the grand staircase. He fired along tike passage, but evidently without effect, for the steps still retreated. He then ran swiftly along to the stnircase and fired another shot as the fugitive reached the first landing, when the fellow cried " augh," leading Colonel Shepard to think he had hit him; another ere he reached the foot of the stairs, down which Col. Shepard pursued him; and gave a part ing shot as be passed out of the door which stood open. As all this time merelr the faintest image of a man in retreat had been actually seen, the shots were made by the pursuer, himself in motion, at a mark the whereabouts of which wai rather judged of by sound j than by sight By this time the whole r.f ,1. a inmot, of tn hntpl wpr arnii apd i Col. Shepard (lid not follow the fellow j further, as tue nigm was very aaris. a light having been procured, a short sword was found sticking in the stairs; and search being made at daylight, the scabbard of the sword was found near one of the iron stays of the flagstaff, and a mark showing that the man had run agninst the gny.' These facts seem to place beyond doubt the deliberate intentions of the man. Radical Oratory.

We can well believe that it will be admired when Henry Clay is forgot ten but not till then. Here is the re port: ;" ';. . .'. . "Mink Frekta Ladies akd Shkkti.k mens: Ven I cooms to dis coontry I coom vith mine heart warm in de cause of liberty and de rights of mine colored frents. I foorst fought mit the army of the Potomax mit General Mike Clellen, and ven the President call for colored troops I raise von regiment, and was villing to sacrifice de last man of mine command to safe de glorious vlug and the best government the vorld ever vas seen.

Une white man only has ever been hung in the Terri tory, and bis preference for the rope was induced by the hope held out by some of his confederates that they would rescue him from the scaffold.
