We doubt if any city in the State possesses more me chanical skill and ability than Evans ville. We every day see evidences of this fact in all branches of industrial pursuits, in masonry, carpentery, stone cutting, and painting. In the latter branch, Evansville is particularly rich. The sign painting just finished on the wholesale establishment of L. Loewen thal & Co., corner of Main and First streets,. Uy Mr. Zumstein, is a clear vin dication of our boast in that branch. Handsome Paintings We have no- i ticed, for the last day or two, a couple of handsome paintings, at Mr. Healy's Book Store, the work of Miss Julia Horn brook, which are highly creditable to her as an amateur artist They are both copies from sketches, one of a child and the other a landscape, with cattle, sheep, &c, the latter a par m ticularly well executed work of art. As a conception of the original artist, there are several points subject to criti cism, but we are assured it is a close copy of the original greatly amplified. The execution of these paintings indi cate a high degree of artistic ability, as Miss Hornbrook has had but few lessons and those not by masters in the art of oil painting. The coloring is particularly well exe cuted, and there is a life and freshness about the paintings which we seldom meet with in works of this kind. We hope the gifted authoress of these handsome paintings will cultivate her talents in this line, as we are confident she will excel. Bold Attkmpt to Commit Robbery. We are informed that on Wednesday : evening, while the guests and boarders of the Washington House were at supper, some bold thief concealed himself in the room of Major Mank, under the bed. After the Major had retired and had fallen into a light sleep, the villain com menced his operations by slipping tbe Major's revolver from beneath his pil low. He then proceeded to search the body of the Major for further booty, but his manipulations wakened the Major, who at once seized the robber by the the throat with one hand, while with the other he felt for his revolver under his pillow. The robber, however, succeeded in freeing himself from the Major's grasp and left in a hurry, carrying the Major s revolver with him. No clue to the thief has been discovered- Our city is full of rogues, and people cannot be too careful of guarding their premises. The Evansville Journal charges us with copying not an item but an idea, from its columns! We beg your anion, Bro. Silverthorn, we saw the idea in Godey's Lady's Bc''k two weeks before it appeared in the Jox'.rnal. Sil verthorn says he intends to copyright his fun hereafter! Of course, tou take the right to copy, but the next time you do so, and claim it as original, do not copy from so widely circulated publication as Godey. Wabash Express. "That cat won't jump," Perry. We have not looked into a copy of Godey's Lady's Book for more than a year, and are not aware that any Such an idea is contained in that widely circulated pub- lication. We took our idea from an actual oc- . , currence that transpired in front of our office, and our idea suggested to you the i idea of profiting by the idea contained n Godey. A candid confession, Perry, I is good for the soul. A Handsome and Appropriate Pres ent. Some unknown admirer of Capt Josh. V. Throop, sent him yesterday an ! exquisite lithographic representation of 'wooding op" on the Mississippi, by : moonlight The scene represented is tho wooding of the Princess on the Mississippi coast, a glowing fire kindled on the shore, the fire streaming from her tall " stacks," the faD moon soaring gorgeously amid the dappled clouds, and the Diana coming op under a full head of steam, endeavor. ing to pass her successful rival as she lies to. I. is one of the handsomest pic- tures of tbe kind we have seen, and will add an additional charm to this Grand Armada, whose jcabin it will grace, of course. The Paymaster has commenced paying off the Indiana Legion for servi ces rendered during the Kirby Smith raid.

Billy Voris, one of the cleverest gentle men, and most polite officers of modern t mes, in command. The Tycoon has very superior passenger accommoda-tions. The Louisville Journal regreU to 5rn from the Maysville Eagle that Mr. Logan, clerk of the circuit and county courts of Rowan county, was recently brutally murdered by guerrillas near Morehead. He was shot once through the arm find twine through the body, living for a few days, but his wounds have proved fatal - j The Louisville Journal says two hogsheads of tobacco were sold at the Pickett Warehouse at $25 and $25.50. It was grown in Owen county, and sold by O. P. and Jesso Pringle to Mr. Ed-1 wards, the well-known tobacconist of that city. Ex ; Ft. wing.

Interesting from Richmond Horri ble Treatment of Union Prisoners. Washixgton, Nov. ". Mr. Bohaven, who was captured in the vicinity of Oco quan Creek last Christmas, and lately returned to his home in Alexandria, has informed the Journal that Castle Thun der is the only prison in Richmond where prisoners are allowed to purchase anything. Shortly after the battle of Chicamauga about 200 Union prisoners arrived at Richmond from the field. They were almost all in a famishing and starving condition. They were four days between the two points, and all they had to eat in that time was four hard crackers eauh. On their arrival at Richmond they were taken to Libby Prison, where they laid two days longer without having their wounds dressed, and during all of which time they had not a mouthful to eat. Some of them, who were fortunate enough to have a little money, offered $4 for a loat ot bread, but ihe othcers in charge would not let it be carried to them. Mr. B. left Richmond in a flag of truce boat ii company with about 200 persons. When the vessel neared Drurv s Bluff, the prisoners were made to lie flat clown on the deck, and a special guard was placed over them, that they might be prevented from seeing the fortifications.

The eye be. ing the most delicate organ, and of the most vital importance to the happiness and prosperity of man, should never be tampered with, either by the individual or by those who, for mere profit, take upon themselves tbe selling of Optical In struments, and who know nothing of the anatomy of the eye, or how to discover tbe proper glasses to suit the peculiarity ol the different sights of those needing spectacles, thousands have lost their vision entirely from not applying to those oaly qualified to know the different defects in each in dividual's sight, and how to remedv it hv wearing the proper kind of spectacles.
