PHILADELPHIA, May 10, 1866.
An Old Curiosity Shop.
We called recently at the admirable little
studio and gallery of Mr. Joseph Richard
son, who has just ensconced himself snugly
in chambers adjoining the Academy of Fine
Arts. We had long known Mr. Richardson
as the most skillful and artistic of picture
cleaners, and had nothing to wonder at
when he exhibited his triumphs in the way
of restoring old ragged paintings ; but we
were really amazed when he brought out
from dark corners and lurking places a
series of artistic gems, selected in the purest
taste, and in the freshest condition. The
fact is, Mr. Richardson is a humorist, and
under the pretence of amassing artistic luta
ber and mongery, finds means to keep his
finger on many a morsel that is to the con
noisseur what roast crackling was to Charles
Lamb. Mr. Richardson, a cheery, old gen
tleman of the Mr. Boffin order, issued at our
knock from some interior denr4here the por
traits of Philadelphia's ancestors were under
going the pleasant alchemy of his skill, and
extended the little finger alas left hand as
the most presentable and least varnished
part of his person. Affecting blindness
towards every aspect of him but that com
paratively pure extremity, we shook it
rather warmly, and set ourselves to wander
at his direction through the pleasant but
strait and narrow paths left by his accumu
lated treasures. There were old masters in
profusion, immaculate conceptions, game,
fruit and Holy Families, both copies, and
originals with a pedigree. A man with 'a
taste for antiques and an eye for a good
brownish-black, will here find himself in
clover; for ourselves, after a reasonable
dose-of this kind of article, we were fain to
plead for something a little more modern
and amene; whereupon the old magician,
smiling a sly smile, proceeded to extract
from behind old panels, old portraits in
powder, and the leaves of old triptichs with
saints upon them, a quantity of lovely con
temporary works by Belgian, Dusseldorf,
French and English painters, which soon
completely changed the aspect of the room.
filling it with new bloom and color.
There were dogs by Madame Ronner ;
beautiful children by Seben ; candle-lights
by Rosier, with the finish and lustre of
jewels ; a white-aproned cook in his kitchen,
by Hoguet ; a large allegorical female figure
by Hay, of Londen, to expose which, Mr,
Richardson drew an immense veil of blue
velvet. The collection of works by English
artists is unique, being rather a specialty
with Mr. Richardson. Whoever values the
fine, reserved, honest and self-possessed
landscape's of this school, will be - charmed
with his collection. Views by such men as
Boddington, E. C. Williams, Shayer and
Meadows, are continually passing through
the modest little gallery.
But we are doing Mr. Richardson no
kindness by describing his collection speci
fically ; if there is one thing that pleases
him beyond another, it is showing to his
cultivated patrons a "bit" that has had
none of the gloss worn off by public exhibi
tion or the comments of the crowd. His
Mitse—we are confident he has one, of a
very high and transparent order—greatly
prefers to keep her regalia under- a bushel;
there they are, the gold and crown jewels of
art, hidden behind the dingy traps of the
picture restorer ; and the reader, if he is
good and succeeds in pleasing Mr. Rich
ardson, shall see them some day for him
Philadelphia Art.
We have already mentioned the existence
of a movement among the Artists of Phila
delphia .which will no doubt do much good
to the cause of Art in this city. Many of
the prominent members of the profession
have joined together with a view of having
a sale of their works at auction, and we wish
them complete success. In fact it is the
strongest action they have taken this season,
and speaks well for their enterprise. Why
should not good pictures be sold at auction?
There has always been a great timidity
among the Artists in this respect. This Can
be attributed to.the following reason: most
of the pictures heretofore sold under the
hammer have been placed there by dealers
whobny from the Artists. The small prices
they pay to those producing them have led
to great deterioration in the quality of the
paintings, so that the larger proportion sold
in this way are below mediocrity. The
purchasers are obliged to buy at second
hand, paying a percentage to the dealer
and receiving an inferior production.
It is to avoid this that the Artists are now
engaged in the present movement, and it is
to be hoped that action so beneficial to both
parties will meet the full endorsement and
aid of the discriminating public.
This system has been carried on with
considerable success in New York, and we
feel that Philadelphia should be, and is, as
well inclined to assist her resident talent
as her great :rival. It , certainly is calcu
lated to bring the purchasers who desire to
foster American Art into closer contact
with the Artists, , and mutual advantage
must accrue. The Artists have determined
to .make the trial through the medium of
the coming sale, and the support they re,-
ceive will, we trust, strengthen them in
perpetuating the system. The sale will
.take place at Mr. B. Scott, Jr.'s, Art Gal
lery, 1020 Chestnut street, on Thuisday
evening next. .
Facts and Fancies.
The Boston Post says that the ladies take
gentlemen with them to Professor Blot's
lectures, under his rule that each lady is to
bring a pencil, paper and a—Spoon!
The rebel Gen. J. E. B Stuart is to have a
monument. Rebel statues are getting over
plenty, considering the professed poverty of
the South. It would be better to apply their
loose cash to paying Northern debts which
have been somewhat extensively repu
diated. Let us either have no statutes of
limitation, or else a limitation of statues.
Professor Blot is giving the Bostonians
much precious advice. For instance, he
says—" Never eat melon as a dessert. It a
great mistake; but when there is no soup it
should be eaten the first thing." His ob
fection is, that as dinner should ba a lively
meal, everything should be avoided that
has a melon-colic tendency. He does not
explain bow soup can be eaten the first
thing, when there is none.
R. E. Lee has had a present of an enormous
steer from Baltimore. Well, there were a
good many Baltimore folks who were steer
ing to Lee-ward, all through the rebellion.
The report that the Directors of the Acad
emy of Fine Arts intend to introduce a
movable "sight line," by which every
body's picture will have an equal chance, is
premature, though we believe such a plan
would be an excellent one.
Santa Anna In New York.
Much excitement was created on Satnr
day among the resident Mexicans in New
York, their friends and their enemies, by
the rumor that General Santa Anna had
arrived here from St.Thomas,on the steamer
Georgia. The excitement was greatly in
tensified, though, when it become known
that such was actually the fact, and as usual
in such cases, great was the marvel thereat.
Gossipers rioted in all manner of improba
ble solutions as to the object of his visit.
Some believed ballad come as a secret emis
sary for Maximilian, founding their belief
on the communications recently transpiring
between the two - aspirants for Mexican
honors. Others thought his sympathies
were altogether with the Liberals.
His, object in visiting the United States is
said to exert himself on behalf of General
Juarez. The General with his staff, among
whom is his son, went immediately to the
house of a Mexican gentleman, Senor Baiz,
in Elizabethport, New Jersey, where they
will stay several days, when a visit to this
city will be made. A meeting at Cooper's
Institute is then projected, at which the
General will be present, and when he will
probably more fully explain his intentions.
[For the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.]
The Worm .hnisance.
In Friday's BuLLErix was an arti
cle under this head, which says, "How
these little creatures came upon the leaves
is an interesting question to decide. The
theory that they hatch out from clusters of
eggs, found upon the under side of the
small branches is clearly incorrect." The
writer of this article cleaned the eggs from
two trees about a month since, and the re
sult shows for itself in the trees being clear
of worms, except one branch, while other
trees on the other side of the street have
their thousands. Upon a close examina
tion of the branch referred to, the nest of
eggs or shells is stillthere, sufficient to show
where the worms came' from. This cluster
of eggs escaped observation when the trees
were cleaned, and is an incident to show
that the worms did come from those eggs.
PHILADELPHIA, May 12, 1866.
A 'Card.
To the Editor of the Evening Bulletin:—
Hating observed in one of the Sunday pa
pers that my name heads a list of "Artistes"
who are to appear this week, for the benefit
of Officer Dorsey, one of the captors of
Probst, I desire to state that the announce
ment is made entirely without my sanction.
I will gladly read an entire evening, or con
tribute to any respectable entertainment
having for its object the benefit of the lone
orphan, Willie Deering.
Philadelphia, Mayl4, 1566.
nut street, May 14, 1866.—A roll of paper
sixty feet long lays on our table, with the
following heading: "This may certify that.
Colton theDentalAssociation of Philadelphia
have, after administering to us the Nitrous
Oxide Gas, extracted for us, without pain,
the number of teeth and at dates oppo
site our respective names. The effect of the
gas was pleasant, and the operation satisfac
tory." This paper its....,ted October 12, 1865,
—about six months ago—and is signed by
two thousand and forty-four patients.
I have never had the slightest ill effects to
attend the operation of the gas in a single
case. Opposite each name is a blank space
for any remark which the signer may think
proper to make. One lady wrote yesterday:
"The happiest moments of my life were
when I was under the influence of the gas
and had two teeth extracted." Another
wrote : " I thought 'I was in heaven."
Another : ." I went to the opera ;" " had a
most delightful dream," etc. These cases
are among the most pleasant. No one has
ever complained of anything more disa
greeable than an unpleasant dream.
A little deaf and dumb child describes the
general feeling of patients: "I went to Dr.
Colton's and breathed in a bag, and my
teeth fell right out." .Re saw no instru
ments, and was not aware that one had been
put in his mouth. Yesterday we extracted
fifteen teeth with one dose of the gas for a
lady, and though in very delicate health,
she said she felt as well as before inhaling
the gas. We have an experienced dentist
whose time is, devoted to extracting teeth.
We are consequently able to extract teeth
in the very best manner possible.

Liverpool at noon on the 2d, and Queens
towtion the 3d of May, also arrived yester

with the City of Paris.
The Atlantic arrived off Cowes on the
night of the 28th April, and proceeded for
Bremen. The Cnba reached Liverpool soon
after noon on the 29th ult. The Pereire ar
rived at Brest on the mornimicof May 1, and
the St. George off Queenstown on the after

on the 2d. The Hecla reached Liverpool on

Contrary to rather general expectation,
the ministry of Earl Russell retuned to re
gard their small majority on the Reform
bill as a defeat—and decided not only to re
main in office, but to go on with the Fran
chise bill.
In the House of Commons, on the 30th
ult., Mr, Gladstone, in announcing the Go
vernment programme, declared that the
Government saw no reason in the late divi
sion why they should relax their efforts to
pass the Franchise bill. One-half the
House was prepared to accede to the coarse
proposed by the Governmenton the appear
ance of the amendment of Lord Grosvenor,
and the other half, though opposed to that
course, had not declaredagainst considering
the Franchise bill. Under these circum
stances he said he would bring in the bill
for the redistribution of seats on the ith of
May, and place the Franchise bill for com
mittee on that day, but only with the view
of fixing the further progress of the measure
in connection with the Redistribution of
Seats bill. Mr. White inquired if Ministers
would stand by the bill snould any impor
tant alteration take place in committee.
The Chancellor of the Exchequer replied
that "as long as the bill stands, we stand;
if it falls, we fall;" but he had not stated
what clauses were important.
In response to a complaint by Colonel
Dunne, Mr. C. Fortescue stated that the
Government did not consider it prudent in
the present state of Ireland to call out the
Irish militia.
The Daily Hews congratulates the oountry
on the fact that the next battle on reform
must be fought by chiefs with vizors up, and
by troops with banners in the wind. In the
next division it will be clearly known to all
the world that Liberals who are counted up
by a Tory teller have voted against a pure
and simple comprehensive, and complete
Reform bill.
The Times contends that the Government
is now as free as Parliament itself to watch
the signs of the times and to steer their
course so as to run least risk of damage. It
is of course undesirable that a Reform Bill
should be passed which is only a Reform
Bill in name but it is equally vain to think
that the present Parliament or that any
Parliament will sanction legislation on the
basis of numbers, or enfranchisement on
the plea of a fellow humanity. If anything
is to be done respect must be paid to the
conviction of a minority which may at a
moment be turned into a majority.
The Star says the Government is doing
its duty in making one more appeal to the
House of Commons; but if any other appeal
be necessary, let it be made to the country.
The Herald says it is now obvious that the
extent, the manner and the time of settle
ment of the Reform question rests with the
Conservative party.
Mr. Bright bad been making a speech in
Manchester, in which he contended that if
the Ministry were defeated on the Reform
bill, they ought not to resign, but to appeal
to the country.
The House of Lords had debated .and
passed to a second reading the bill amend
ing the law of capital punishment.
Dr. Dixon, Roman Catholic Archbishop
of Armagh, died on the 29th April, from
fever, after a few days illness.
A police constable had been shot dead in
Dublin by a Fenian, named Richard
Kearney who had made his escape. The
act is said to be a Fenian revenge.
Messrs. Gurney and Manlo, the Royal
Commissioners to Jamaica, had .arrived
home, but nothing official had trans
pired as to the nature of the report
they would submit of their investi
gations. The Times, however, antici
pates the general verdict of the Com
missioners, viz.: First, that the proclama
tion ofmartial law was, during the first few
days warranted by paramount necessity; next
that the outrages were preceded by symp
toms of a rebellious and sanguinary spirit.
That the execution of Gordon will be con
demed as a reckless disregard of human
rights, and a decisive condemnation will be
pronounced on the inhumanity displayed by
several military officers. Governor Eyre
will be censured for having yielded to the
panic of his advisers after the necessity for
severe measures had passed.
The Times says that according to the care
ful estimate of the Commissioners, 438 rebels
were shot during martial law; about COO per
sons were flogged, and 1,000 houses of the
peasantry were burnt down.
VIENNA, May I.—The Presse of to.day
says that the negotiations between the
Prussian Cabinet and a special agent of the
Italian GoVernment continue.
The official Wiener Zeitung publishes a
notice stating , that an increased number of
army surgeons is required, and setting
forth the conditions upon which they will

City of Paris.
immediate rupture, however, between Aus
tria and. Prussia is expected, as Austria will
submit her proposals to the Federal Diet,by
which they will be referred to the special
committee on the Affairs, of the Duchies.
The state of things continues critical on ac
count of the armaments of both Powers. It
is believed that the Prussian armaments
will shortly be increased.
A reply, dated the 29th, to the Austrian
Note of the 26th ult., has been forwarded to
Baron von Werther, the Prussian Ambas
sador in Vienna, stating that Prussia does
not agree to the proposal, of the Vienna
Cabinet in reference to the question df the
Duchies. It lays special stress upon the
community of interests of Prussia and
Italy, and gives an evasive answer to the
Austrian proposals for disarmament.
DRESDEN, May I.—The written reply of
Saxony to the Prussian demand for the dis
armament of the Saxon forces was pre
sented to-day to Count Bismark by the
Saxon Minister in Berlin.
bITINICIEf, May I.—lt is stated that the-
Austrian representative at this court has

FLOBErcE, April 30.—Evening.—The
Cbamber of Deputies to• day unaninapusly
approved the following resolution introduced
by Signor Mordini:
"That at this momentous crisis every prep
aration for war shordd be made."
The bill presented by Signor Scialoja, the
Minister of Finance, authorizes the Govern
ment to provide by royal decrees, and by
extraordinary measures the financial means
necessary for the defence of the country.
The Minister demanded that the bill should

are accordingly bolding an extraordinary
evening sitting to discuss the bill.
It is stated that the Minister of the In
terior has made the necessary preparations
for the mobilization of the :National Guard.
MAY L—The Senate to-day approved, by
78 votes against 1, the bill passed yesterday,
by the Chamber of Deputies, empowering
the Ministry to provide the financial means

A popular demonstration took place here
to•day in favor of war. Shouts were raised

The Opinions of to-day says: "Letters
received here from Vienna state that on
receipt of the Italian circular despatch of
the 22d of April, declaring that Italy had
not concentrated her troops or called out
her reserves, England and Bavaria imme
diately sent communications to the Austrian
Government, urging the propriety of ab
staining from further armaments, the atti
tude of the Italian Government being
thoroughly pacific. Diplomatic steps in ac
cordr.nce with these communications were

Daring and Successful Robbery in New
[From Mday's New York News.]
About half an hour before noon on Fri
day last, while Mr. J. H. Higgins, en shier
of the firm of E. S. Higgins Co., carpet
dealers, doing business at No. 355 Broad
way,was passing. through Forty-third street,
between Eighth and Ninth avenuas, carry
ing a valise containing $16,400 in current
funds, he was attacked by a man who
stealthily approached him from behind and
dealt him a powerful blow on the right eye.
This assault was followed by a second, per
petrated by an individual who jumped
from a butcher's cart standing on the op
posite aide of the street, who struck Mr.
Higgins a blow on the bead with a heavy;
weapon. The cashier, stunned, fell to the
pavement, wheß the highwayman snatched
the valise and funds from his grasp, and
jumping into a cart, where a thirid accom
plice awaited them, drove off rapidly, pass
ing through Forty-third street; Eighth ave
nue and Forty-second street to Broadway,
wbere all trace of the otfenders was, lost.
Mr. Higgins, on being restored to conscimis
nes% could give, but an unsatisfactory de
scription of the robbers. The man who first
assaulted the cashier was tall, well built,
and wore a white linen duster. He had a
black moustache. The cartused was painted
a dirty white color, and Mr. Higgins be
lieves had the name" of "Bryant" on one-'
side. The horse harnessed to the vehicle
was a dark brown one, with rapid action.
It is supposed that the highwayman be
longed to the gang of "hog thieves" who, a,
few months since, robbed a messenger boy
of a large amount, while the lad was pass
ing by the corner of William and Beekman
streets, in broad daylight.
Hevements of Head Centre Stephens.
[From To-day's N. Y. Times.]
Great interest still attaches in Irish circles
to the movements and actions of their idol
ized chief, Mr. James Stephens.
Yesterday Mr. Stephens received a few
visitors, among wham were Benjamin Vi
cuna Mac Kenna and Rupert Vergara, of
the Chile Embassy, who expressed to :Mr.
Stephens their sympathy for Ireland, and
wished him success in his endeavors to
found a republic on the Green Isle. A large
number of lady guests of the Metropolitan
also paid their respects to the C. 0. I. R.
For the greater part of the day Mr. Ste
phens was engaged at No. 814 Broadway,
with various Fenian Committees who have
been intrusted by the Brotherhood with the
duty of investigating the affairs of the late
Colonel O'Mahony. The Committee re
ported progress; and after receiving farther
instructions, were directed to clost, the duty
in their hands as speedily as possible. A
financial report was also laid before Mr.
Stephens, which report, after having been
reviewed him, will be presented to the
The committee of arrangements appointed
to prepare for the grand festival at Jones'
Wood, on Tuesday next, have prepared
their programme and made every prepara
tion for an immense crowd to be present.
Mr. S:ephens will, on that occasion, devote
two hours to the reception of his friends at
the committee rooms, whence he will be
escorted to the Speaker's stand by a detail
of men made from each one of the Manhat
tan Circles. Four stands will be erected for
the speakers, and' Mr. Stephens will make
a short address at each. His main speech,
however, will be given at stand No.
1, where he will elucidate "The State
and Necessities of the Cause at Home
and Abroad." He will also relate his
adventures in Ireland, and the ,manner
of his escape from that country. The names
of other speakers have not yet been made
known, but each stand will be amply pro
vided with eloquence. Fenian Circles,
Irish regiments, and Celtic societies with
out number, will be in attendance, and as
an admission fee of fifty cents per head will
be charged, it is expected that a large sum
will be realized. Whatever sum the net
proceeds amount to will be turned over to.
Mr. Stephens, for the benefit of the Irish
Republic. It is believed that this meeting
will cement the Brotherhood completely,
and unite the contending elements in har
mony. If such a result be accomplished,.
Mr.tephe,ns, on leaving the city, will ap
point a deputy to represent him in the ad
toklillatration.of Fenian affairs.
