There are a good many humbugs in the world, and art circles are as often deceived by them as are less aesthetic people. A London collector recently refused to pay $5,000 for a pair of rose vases, -which he had bought of a dealer for old Sevres, aflirming that they were spurious, and that the seller had tempted him to buy by exaggerating the price he himself had paid for them. .Thero -were pretty strong grounds for - suspecting that the seller's figures wore exaggerated, and good judges were equally divided as to the genuinencs or spuriousness of the v.iscs. 'ihe jury, however, hold the buyer liable for the full amount. Sevres is not the only ware about which there is much uncertainty. Connoisseurs often go into ecstasy about "old Satsuma," but Prof Morse, who has lived in Japan, d.clatvrl in a recent lecture befoie the Lowell Tnstitute of Boston, that Sat uni.i is not held in any special in Japau. There rae lour kindtt of it the gray painted, the gray inlaid, the brown, and the light colored or yellow. Tug claim that the yellow c ay w as not discovered until the present century, and tl.at there is no auci nt Sat mint pottery ; ad articles of real Satsuma my muhII, and have no stamp upon them; and pinks with heavy rims, cups with iiumlics, and saucers and pitchers, hae tun Milely no existence in genuine .la pane e pottery. Two rare oil articles of genuine ware which weie obtained by the lecturer with gre.it rrous.le and expense, were made seventy-live years ago. The larger articles so d as ancient Satsuma are from two to four years old, and are principally sold in Tokio, and are rubbed with charcoal dust to give them an appearance of age. The Professor aho declared that he had' himself fatood besi.le an agent of an American firm wliich deals in 'Satsuma " ware, and heard him give an order for a great quantity of this "ancient" pottery, directing the designs, a'id telling the maker to put on plenty of decorations, ro matter what. These litrge pieces are regarded by the Japanese as abominable paraphrases, and a name is applied to them which signifies that they are made solely to be exported. They are, for the most part, not Satsuma at all, but Awata, and the decoration is performed by children and cheap workmen of all kinds. There are a good many fine specimens of Satsuma, not a few of large size, to be found in all our American cities. The amount paid for some of these will appear much magnified in the light of Professor Morse's revelations. If he is to be credited, there are other Japanese arts than the finishing of pottery, which collectors and till would do well to study. Aftfh Gariiold had been dinned at by two talkative women at the White House he walked away and asked a gentleman in a corner : " Do you know what is the derivation of 'bother?' It comes from two people talking to you at once." Hans Christian Andebsen had great dread of being buried alive.
