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.

Tlie intellectual game of drawpeknr

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

Proserpine—While I hold a quartet
of knaves.

\\ lien tlie Polled—Angus and Ilere
ford association! met in Chicago, last
fall, the call was made on the mem
bers at both meetings to agree to
steer some pure-bred bull calves for
•he purpose of preparing them for
future exhibits. 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.
