New Orleans, La., April 22, i8<?4. There is one pleasure in this world, which, unlike most others, is strengthened by indolence—that of looking upon beautiful pictures. We gaze and gaze, depart and come again, to drink in the lights and shades and beauties of the painter’s wondrous art. So it is with the crowds who daily throng the Art G derv at the Exposition. From morning till night a continuous stream of visitors are going to and departing from this attractive rt sorL It may lie that there is noth ing so extraordinary in the collec t; n, but what there is there has the n markable power ot drawing a full house every day, and the mention ot a few pieces may not be without interest to your readers. “lirai ing up,” a small painting about lavag, attracts much atten tion, as its wonderful realism touch es a tender chord in the memory of many a spectator, who recalls the tremulous mornings experienced af ter being out with the boys! It is the picture of a vigorous old toper, unsteadily pouring an “eye-opener” giving it meanwhile a look ot cotni cal satisfaction, bis only companion, a cat, sleeping quietly on her chair. Thomas Mill has a larger painting entitled “The Last Spike,” repre senting the act of uniting the Union and Central Pacific railroads in it'69, which contains many life-size figures of the persons present on tii it memorable occasion, including the since noted Sanford, who holds the silver sledge with which the golden spike was driven, while mounted on a ladder in the distance is a telegr iphic operator, ready, at a signal, to flash the news’ of the con nection to all the towns and cities of the land; among the group of spec tators are Indians, section men, and the inevitable station loafer. Like all visitors your correspondent will often be lured to the Gallery, but at present must go over to the “States" and fill an appointment with a friend. CALIFORNIA AT NEW ORLEANS. I he older reader will remember that forty years ago California was scarcely heard mentioned in the I- nited States, and if read of at all, only as a far off country, a sort of desert land, inhabited by barbarians and pirates, among whom life and property were disregarded and un sate. Nor was it till long in ’49 and the ’^o’s that the Americans generally knew that there was such a country. I hen, and for years after it was looked upon as a mere sterile mining camp, productive of nothing but gold, and even that in uncertain quantities, in the pursuit of which disappointment was the rule and success the exception. Whoever in 1850, or even later years, had predicted that California would become, within his genera tion, one of the first agricultural States in the Union, might well have been arrested on a charge of lunacy. Yet, here to day, she rep resents herself in the World’s Ex position, not only as one of the first agricultural States in the Union, but challenging the oldest States and countries as a horticultural section of the world, and competing even with the West Indies in the quality and excellence of her semi tropical fruits. Her exhibit here, made by the Southern Pacific railroad com pany, is one of marvelous richness and variety, and of such general in terest to the whole country that your correspondent has given it much attention, as the promised completion of the ship railway across the Isthmus adds increased interest to the entire Pacific Coast. In her exhibit every variety of grain and seeds occupy a Lading I lace, the whole crowned with 1: ivy cornstalks 18 feet high, and samples of wheat and flour than which there never have been better produced, having more than 3,000 specimens from every part of the great State. One of iier private cit izens, in order to aid in making known the excellence of his State as an agricultural garden, Gen. John Iiidwell, of Butte County, has a vast private exhibit of grains, truio, nuts, et.\, of his own production. There are 150 samples of grains in sheets from the State University, in this particular excelling any of the agrt ( liberal colleges of the older States. In this display is included hemp, ramie, lias, and wheat. In addition to grain production, the State produces, with equal facil ity, not alone all the semi-tropical fruit s, the vines, etc., but the hardier fruits and vegetables of more north ern countries. A few items of interest to people in search of new homes, may here be put down concerning California. It has within its limits an area of 155,000 square miles, or 99,000, 000 acres, being the second largest State in the Union. There are yet within her borders 45,000,000 ac res of unentered free government lands, of which fully one-half are suitable for one or another agriculturaf pur pose, and on which any enterprising man with a few hundred dollars can soon lay the foundation for an in dependent fortune. atsllicltr rokrr in Eloslon Tlie intellectual game of drawpeknr has taken a firm hold on the dwellers in cultured Boston, and the teachings of tho Conoore School of Pliili sujdiy are for a time forgotten. Our Special correspondent writes us that he recently overboard several fair daughters of the Athens of Ameii a in the pleasant pastime, when the following dialogue ensued: Anastasia la it my aunt? Oh, yes! well, there's a solitary chock. Clylenmostra 1 will bestride your destitued of night, dear. Proserpine Well, draw your curds, girls. 1 will remain Patrick. Millicent— Well, I will wager a half score of cl ecks. Anastasia I behold you and elevate you five. Proserpine—I fear that you are feigning to possess moio than you really have,but, nevertheless, dears, 1 call you. Anastasia—I havo a homogeneous trio of aces. Millicent—And I n Robert-append aged flush. Proserpine—While I hold a quartet of knaves. Millicent- Well, dear, then you take the ceramics. —Chicago Rambler. A Boltie Knlimn.

The call resulted in members of the last named, although it was a very full meeting, agreeing to steer thirteen bull calves, and the members of >hu Angus association agreeing to steer sixteen. Mem bers present expressed themselves ns encouraged by this readiness (?) of members to sacrifice males for the benefit of the breed. One would cer tainly bo justified from this in sup posing that the great majority of those present regarded every male calf dropped as fit to breed from. Yet tbeie is not one of the gentlemen present who does not cordii Uy concur intheadvice so frequently given to breeders, to “use the knife unsparingly." Jt is, then as in so many other tilings simply a question of temporary pr. tit. It is true pure bred bulls are better Ilian scrubs any day in the year, and that the number of pure-bred huHs is comparatively in H'gii'iicant in projioriiou to the whole number of cattle in the country. It is ols >, d mbtloss, truo our pure bred cattle probably average higher than they tin iu other countries, owing to the fact that so m..ny of them have been imported, and it is presutna’ to that i npi.rtei's, if they have not always secured tho best, have rarely, if ever, undertaken to bring over inferior an Hods. At the value time, it is useless to deny that breed ers are setting but a poor c?. ample to the numerous farmers who ate using, or offering for service, grade bulls, when they decline to use tho knife on any of their pure-bred animals, ami every year send out some which they well know themselves will do little or no credit to the bred itself or to themselves, as breeders As nothing does the 1 render so much good as they get of the bulls he sells iu the neigh brohoeds where they go, if they are a credit to him and his bulls, so noth ing p.'onianemly injures his reputa tion more surely than to send out an inferior bull, sold exclusively on the strength of his being registered. We hope, during the no :t few months, to hear of many pure bred bull calves put in the way of being converted into prime beef. tnmls'i Ion.
