Srdiije Story of a Picture. A discovery of a valuable picture cjn ca!ed try a caarsa daub painted over it, ev idc-ntly for the purpose 'f concealment, wa recently reported iu ISew Orleans. Tl story as printed in several papers in that city is that a Mr. Richard Clagne, an artist since dead, had his attention drawn to the daub which hung on the wall of an upper room in a sailors'boardirg house. Looking closely at it he observed that there was painting underneath that which appeared and on cleaning one spot discovered the head of a child paiuted with masterly skill. II advised hif friend, Mr. Eugene Chassaienac a connisscur in art. to purchase it and the advice was followed. Alter its purchase however, the picture lay neglected in a gar ret in Mr. Chassaignao's house and used so the story ruus by hia children lor plaything. After Mr. Clagne's death Mr. Chassaignac, calling to mind, what his friend had said of the old daub, put it under a hydrant for a time, and became further convinced that there was at least something under the visible picture, jbrnploying Mr. Uandolnh is a till to clean the canvas artisti cally, he was soon rewarded by the sight of a V enus lying to a shell and escorted by cu pids and tritons over the surface of the ocean, l he picture is prooounced by many who have seen it to be a genuine "old mat ter and is praised in the highest terms. It is shortly to be put on exhibition in New York, and the artists of that city ate to be invited to pass judgment on it. Lost time is forever lost.

B5"The Gazette says, "If ever? phvsi cian would report deaths promptly, such delays would not eccur, and such sad scenes wculd be avoided." Referring to an article in the Review, whertio it was stated that a deceased child had lain sev eral days awaiting a permit from the board ot health before it could be interred. Ihis patient was attended, before its death, by two physicians, irregularly; one of whom is a member of the board of health. The unofficial physician was call ed in to see the child a day or two before its death, and was not called, nor did not go again, and only heard of the death on the street some two days after its occur rence. He has never been asked for certificate of death. .What people is it the Gazette would have understand thir health ordinance? Has the official physi cian done his duty in this matter or does the blame rest entirely upon the parents of the child?
