What mother on earth spoils her saucy babes
so deliciously as Art spoils some of her children ?
To fly from the easel to the piano, dissolving over
the keys the conception that seemed a little stub
born on the canvas; to talk of Turner and
Troyon In the society of men and women of
genius all day long through the intervals of
music; to melt the hearts of tailors with a sketch;
to lavish on your tobacco-merchant or your
color-maw whole Atlantic and Pacific oceans
combined with the greater part of the solar sys
tem in exchange for his wares; to dine with the
Mayor and the Judge, winking fondly meanwhile
at your own picture hung over the mideboard; to
be called eccentric and to wear the kind of
things you like best; to buy all the pictures you
want, and call them the material of art; to sell
your old trash for gold. in San .Francisco: there
is liberty! there fa Bohemia! Edward" Moran
was voluptuously floating off the coast of Maine
last summer, while his landlord was heating
himself over the erection of a new studio for him.
It Is fifty feet along, it is twenty feet across, It
is fifteen fret when you look tip to the ceiling,
and more than that If you go to the skylight.
And the violincello is standing against the farther
wall, with the foot-peg thereof in a spittoon,
likely, and the guitar, minus a string, leans
against the big chair, while just within the door
rests a lumbering piano, with the varnish some
what rusty and the keys in admirable tune. Then
throw in a good many pipes, and a litter of to
bacco over the sketches. Then introduce a tall,
athletic figure, very sailor-like In its close car
and knitted waistcoat, and attach it, is a twisted
and cross limbed condition,to the pedals,the stool
and keyboard of the aforesaid rusty piano; fill
the room with the impassioned reverberations of
a German serenade, and you have the painter
completely at borne. .'
The building Is in Walnut street, No. 704.
The Artist receives on Saturday afternoon. As
we rose, stage by stage, to the fourth floor, and
knocked, the rich strains ceased; but then the
dcor flung open, and the pictures flashed before
ne,'"and filled with light the interval of sound."
What a spoiled child! What a careless, rollick
leg sketcher'. What a crude, car-pauol colorist !
What raging, sensational skies! What flippant
boats,l'llLVaa billows, and cotton-wool foam!
How delightful such Work must he, though, if he
can only satisfy himself with it! What a breezy
existence, to flourish off breakers a!! day long
like a writing-master! And then, what a various
sympathy, what mountains, deserts idle and
antres vast, smugglers' caves, wide oceans, rocky
coasts, illimitable skies, all painted with equal
content and self-applause! What fecundity,
what gay irresponsibility, in this fantastic mer
man !
Over the piano stretches copy, painted with
some care, of Turner's "Childe Harold." Turn
s: es favorite umbrella-pine lies printed against
the sub, ' dud thei landscape recedes into one •of
Turner's distances of fainting waters and dis
solving groves. On solid easels beneath stand
the works under the immediate care of the artist.
The hugest and most effective of these is the
"Launch of the Life-boat," at present being imi
tated in chromo; the wreckers' sturdy horses
have drawn the boat down to the beach; and the
wild dark men of the shore are pulling it off the
wheels, their figures defined in silhouette against
the seething pallor of the foam; beyond, a
gleam of watery sun sifts through the scudding
firmament, and dies over the melancholy downs.
Each Bide of this large picture stands a scene of
cheery labor; the "Lobster-catchers" to the right,
and on the left a group of llght-wineed "Mack
erel-schooners" standing for shore in a fair wind,
laden deep with their brilliant prey.
In another part of the atelier two upright
shaped pictures of moderate size are devoted to
the more peaceful harvests of the land ; in one,
the hunter's-moon, like broad red gold. rolls up
through the haze upon a scene of despoiled
fields and trees thinned of their leaves ; in the
companion-piece, under a dark-red oak, stand
the generous ehoCks of maize.
In an insufficient light beneath the window is
hanging a large, impressive group of the scrub
oaks of Now Jersey, their meagre contours
shaved close by the cutting east wind, and their
roots struggling confusedly among the breadthe
of eliding sand they anchor in. Over all, like
luxury mocking poverty, spreads a sumptuous
The walls are sheeted over with Moran's rapid,
imposinraketchea, rapidly picked up over an
extensive traveling route. Each clings to its
place, separated by the narrow strip of bright
"cleating" from its neighbor and from the world
at large. England is there, or the rock-bound
coast of the Puritans, or the lazy beach of South
ern oceans. In the midst of the principal wall, a
band of travelers, fixed like pinned butterflies to
the paper-hanging, seem to be awari)ng np the
bridle.path towards Mount Washington; they are
rounding'the Horn, and a flexible white cloud,
large enough to make an Alp or two, indolently
clambers up with them for company. Or, upon
unvisited coasts, the crags tear the komeleas
waters with their black fangs.
What Edward Moran has here done is perhaps
well. What he could better do, perhaps, were
this. He might study a little, apply himself a
little, and so perhaps creep an inch - nearer to
Mrs. Remble's Sixth
It may well be doubted whether there is any
real choice, in point of positive enjoynient,
tweet, the several plays which Mrs. Kemblo se
lects for her readings. Over all she throws the
influence of her transcendent genial and mates

which sends them away, puzzled to choose be
tween tragedy and comedy; betiveen Antony and
Romeo; between Constance and Cleopatra; be
tween Touchstone and Dogberry, or Beatrice and
Yesterday afternoon another large audience
assembled to hear "Twelfth Night." Although
it cannot be said that Mrs. Kemble was interrupted
by late corners, we were sorry, for the fair credit
of Philadelphia, to see that it needed a little
good:nett - tied lingering over tier beialia'andialile;
to give a few inconsiderate people a chance to
get out of the aisles into their seats
before she began the play. Mrs. Kemble
politely asks her audience to be seated before she
enters,—which she does with clook-like pundit
ality,—and her request, is cheerfully complied,
with by all thoughtful and Polite people. If any
are unavoidably a fen , minntea late, they should
have the good taste to take back seats until the
"Twelfth Night" was a great treat. The Bove
ral characters were sustained, will; wonderful
power, the greatwonder being how Mrs. Eatable
Is able to preserve the Sweet tones of the gentle
Viola, interjected as they are between the roar-
ing gutturals of Sir Toby and the rattling brag
gadocia of Andrew Aguecheek. The whole comic
portion of the play was absolutely indes
cribable. The scene in 'Olivia's garden,
when Malvollo finds the letter; his appearance
before his mistress "In yellow stockings, a color
she abhors; and cross-gartered, a fashion she de
teats;" and the visit of the disguised clown 'to
Malvolio, were brimming over with the most de
lightful fun, which set the audience off into peals
of laughter. But it was not alone in her merry
humors that Mrs. 'terabit!, ehowed her great
genius yesterday. The passages between
Viola and Olivia, and between Viola and Cimino,
were, full of the most touchLuglbeauty and pathos
and were as keenly, though more quietly enjoyed
by the audience, as were the extravagances of
Sir Toby, and the pranks of the mischievous
Each successive performance by Mrs. Kemble
impresses her audiences more and more distinctly
with the fact, frequently overlooked at first, that
they are witnessing the works of Shakespeare
placed upon the stage with the entire cast of
characters, in the bands of the greatest living
dramatic genius. It is not only the !ceding
characters that are played by Mrs. Kemble. The
servants, clowns, oflicere, men, women and chil
dren, all receive their highest traditional inter
pretations at her hands ' and there is an advantage
In 'this that more than compensates for the
absence of the scenery and costume of the stage.
Mrs. Kemble reads the "Merchant of Venice"
on Friday night, and "Hamlet" on Saturday
afternoon, on both of which occasions there will
be crowded houses,as they will be the last oppor
tunities to hear Mrs. Kemble until May, when
she will give another single series of four

In every respect a brilliant success, and it is a
matter of regret that this entertainment closes
;he reason. The most delightful part of the per
formance unquestionably was Leopold de
Meyer's execution of several the compositions
upon the piano, and Mr. 13. Sisteman's violin
playing. This genUenaan is a stranger hem, and
as In was not heralded with a Boum:: of truce
pettibeiiitdiences to which he played were not
as large as they should have been. But his merit
is very great, and we are sure that when our
public are better acquainted with him they will
recognize, the fact and reward him with large
audiences. Mad. Gazzaniga acquitted heraelf
creditably, and Signor Ardavani sang with much
feeling and good taste.

Additional Particulars.
The Nashville Banner, of the 22d,-contains full
details of the daring robbery of Long's bank, at
Russellville, Kentucky. About ten days ago, tv ,
man calling himself Colburn, and claiming to be
a cattle dealer, offered to sell to Mr. Long a 7-30
note, of the denomination of $6OO. As none of
the coupons had been cut off, and the stranger,
who pretended to be from Louisville, where the
notes are worth a premium, offered it at par and
allowed interest, Mr. Long became suepi
clone, and- refused to take it. On the
20th, about 2 P. M., as Mr. Lon t, Mr. Bar
clay, clerk in the bank, and Mr. T.ll Simmons,
a farmer living near Russellville, were sitting be
hind the counter, Colburn and another man rods
up to the door, hitched their horses and entered
the bank, three companions remaining outside.
They asked for change for a fifty dollar note.
Mr. Long pronounced it oounterfeit, but was
about making a more careful examinatlon,when
Colburn drew a revolver, placed its muzzle
against his head and cried out, "Surrender."
Mr. Long wheeled around and sprang toward the
door leading into a room in the rear of the bank
ing office. He hoped thus to make his exit from
the building and give the alarm.
He was, however, anticipated by one of the
robbers, who intercepted him at the door already
mentioned, placed a pistol within six or eight
inches of his head and fired, without having tit
tered a word. The ball did nogreater injury
than grazin Mr. Long's scalp for about two
Inches tearing away the hair and flesh but not
fracturing , the skull. Mr. Long se?zed hold
of the weapon, anclniade an effort to wrench it
from his assailant, but the robbersucecoded in re
gaining possession of his pistol. Daring the
Ecuille which now took place, Mr. Long managed
to reach the hack door of the rear room. Here
be concentrated his almost exhausted strength
into a final effort, freed himself from the clutches
of the robber, sprang through the door and
closed it after stun. He then ran around toward
the front part of the building, shouting for assist
ance. When he reached the street he found two
men sitting on their horses before the entrance
to the bank. They were armed with Spencer
rifles and pistols, and were shooting up and down
the street at all citizens who came within range.
As Mr. Long ran by, they also tired twelve or
fifteen shots at him, but, fortunately, without
Inside the bank,while Mr. Long was struggling
with the fellow above mentioned. and before
Messrs. Barclay and Simmons could rise from
their stats,the latter were confronted by Colburn
and his companion with cocked revolver and
threats of instant death in case the least show of
resistance was made. As soon as Mr. Long
made his retreat by the back door, his antago
nist returned to the banking office and assisted
in the . work of plunder. One of the
robbers stood guard over Messrs. Barclay
and Simmons, while Colbuna and the other.
proceeded tc clean out the establishment.. They
appeared to havenn exact knowledge of its re
sources. In the cash drawer they found over
nine thousand dollars in currency., From the
'vault, of which the door was standiag open, they
took several bags of gold and silver. This specie
consisted principally of dollars, half dollars and
quarters, and had been placed in the bank on
special deposit by several of the neighboring
The amount has not been definitely ascertained,
but it will not, we understand, exceed live thou
sand dollars. Two robbers kept guard outside
while the work of pillaging was going on, and
though the alarm.had spread, kept the citizens
at bay. Finally the sentinels became alarmed,
and called for their accomplices inside to come
out. They quickly complied, bringing with them
saddle-bags crammed with gold and greenbacks.
They were greeted with a heavy volley by a
squad of citizens who were advancing up the
street. All were soon in their saddles, and
at a signal from Colburn, the party dashed at
full speed out of town by the Gallatin pike.
Many a leaden missile was sent after them, but
beyond the report that one had his arm broken,
there is no ground for supposing that any of the
shots took effect. Ten minutes later„ some
forty citizens, mounted on such animals as they
could collect from buggies, wagons and hitching
posts, started in hot pursuit. All the advantage,
except in point of numbers, was with the rob
bers. They rode splendid horses,and were as com
pletely armed and equipped as the most daring
and accomplished highwaymen could desire.
Five miles from Russellville the trail was lost in
the woods, nor was anything heard of Colbura
and his men until the 21st, when a despatch was
received hero stating' that they had crossed the
Louisville and Nashville Railroad early in the
morning, near Mitchelbwille.
A Sad Story—The !Murder of Lieut. Kid
der and Ills Little party in July Last
—l•artiettlars of the Ivent. •
A correspondent of the St. Paul Prev, writing
from Fort 'Wallace, in Kansas, March 9th, says:
lion. J. P. Kidder (who will be remembered as
a lawyer for many years in your city, and now
United Sums Judge in Dakota) has been out on
the plains northwest of here, into the Indian
country, accompanied by a military escort frinu
this poet, to recover the remains of his son,Lient.
Lyman P. Kidder, of the Second United States
Cavalry, who was, with ten of his regiment and
a guide, killed by the Indians lust July. They
returned, being out about nine days, with the
remains of the Lieutenant and his men.
Judge Kidder left here last night with the re
mains of his son, for •the purpose of carrying
them to St. Paul for interment. The recollection
of the manner of the death of this gallant young
officer, who was widely known in military cir
cles, having served his country during the entire
rebellion, and who was a favorite of all who
knew him, is still fresh in the minds of soldiers
and others. Lieut. Kidder was bearer of de
spatches from Gen.Shorman,fcom Fort Sedgwick
to Gen. Custer, then (supposed to be) in camp
at the forks of the Republican river, 110 miles
south of the former place, and reached the place
to which he was eent in 26 hours from the time he
left. Failing to find Gen. 'Custer, (who left
that point the day before), and learning that the
Indiana had collected in such numbers in his rear
—us is supposed, that being true, as since ascer
tained—that he could not return to Fort Sedgwick;
and still endeavoring, but failing to find Custer on
the trackless prairie sea, the Lieutenant, with a
faithful Indian guide, directed his course toward
this fort, when, as interpreters have since learned,
his little party were attacked by several hostile
luiliaes, He and his trusty, chosen men, made a
brave defence continuing on their course at such
intervals a d 'opportunities as their strategy could
procure,saving themselves, but losing.some of
thelr_h rses (they had three extra ones), for
about two days, havin fought over 80 miles,
their and killed more than own number of In
dians. They were. however, about sunrise on
the morning of the second of July, overpowered
while crossing a low piece of prairie, which was
surrounded. 913,all.eldee _OY../i4l, ,A,,Boddea. tik.
tack by more than eight Imam savages,
brought the party to a stand here for decisive

Lord Stanley Confident of the UM.
mate Peaceable Settlement of the
Alabama Claimu.
On March 10, a deputation frost the Peace
Society waited upon Lord Stanley at the Foreign
Office. Rev. Newman Hall, Rev. Dr. Brock, and
Sir Francis Crossley, all of whom had visited the
United States aim the war, briefly addressed his
lordship, all of them concurring in the statement
that, though no doubt a strong_feeling existed as
respects the conduct of this country during the
war, which frequently found very strong expres
sion, yet that the only practical grievance to
which much importance was attached was that
of the Alabama, and that, if that were out of the
way, the great , Republican party of the States
would cordially promote kindly feelings toward
this country.
Lord Stanley said that he thanked the deputa
tion for the honor and pleasure of this interview.
It was quite unnecessary that Mr. Baines should
apologize to him for their paying him this visit ;
for though, no doubt, almost everything that
can be said on this subject has been said, he was
very glad to see them as nothing more strength
ens the bands of a Minister than to feel he is sup
ported by the sympathies of large and intelligent
bodies of his countrymen. Ile could assure them
that the government, and he thought ho might
say any government that might come into power
in this country,waa as anxious to maintain peace
as they were. War, no doubt, was the great
antagcni , t of civilization, and, bad as war would
be for any country, perhaps for no country is it
of greater importance to maintain peace than for
England. We are burdened with a very conside•
rable debt, and our taxation, though not intoler
able, will not bear augmentation without seri
ously affecting our productive power. He was
fully conscious of the magnitude of the interests
involved in the question of peace or war with the
United States. He must say that he never felt
the same amount of alarm on this subject as had
been expressed by some friends for whose
judgment he had great respect. He had listened
with much interest to the remarks of Mr.
Newman Hall. and the other gentlemen who had
visited America,. on the state-of public feeling
there. Ile had alio been in America for several
months, though that was twenty years ago; and
though no doubt they often use, strong lan
gusge, he found, to use a homely, phrase, that
their bark was worse than their, bite. The strong
lavgusge was perhaps - their means of letting off
the strum of popular discontent; but .when they
came to the actual arrangement of affairs,
he thought they were much more . moderate
and reasonable. And he thought they
were not likely to be leas so now; for they are
now, like ourselves bound In heavy securities to
iscepi the peace. , He felt, as the memorial said,
that it would be an honor and happiness to him
self and his colleagues to' bring the matter to a
satisfactory settlement. And while he agreed
with Sir Francis Crossley, that it might not be
necessary to be very rigid about the terms,
but still there must be a feeling of
reciprocity. It is only reasonable to expect
that if concessions be made on one side, conces
sions should also be made on the other. If the
demands were too exorbitant, it would render it
more diftisult to bring about the unanimity which
was so very desirable. He could not state the
precise terms on which a compromise may be
effected, but he had little doubt if they were met,
as he hoped and believed they would be, by a cor
responding spirit of conciliation on the other
side, means would be found to set the question at
rest. I Hear, hear.]
Prince Napoleon's Reputed 417lission,,
The Augsburg Gazette still publishes letters on
the subject of Prince Napoleon's tour. The wri
ter of one communication from Vienna states
that, on the announcement of the approaching
arrival of his Imperial Highness in that city, the
Emperor Francis Joseph immediately offered him
an apartment at the Induce. The Prince, however,
declined the invitation in order that a political
character should not be attributed to his jour
ney. A Berlin letter to the same journal remarks
that in Governmental circles the belief has be
come more and more general that his Imperial
Highness has not been charged with any mission.
-it that opinion," observes the IMbats, "is main
tained for a time with so much persistence and
unison, we may be able to believe that the con
trary is the case, and the public will end by
attributing a great importance to this visit, to
which,at first, but little importauVe was attached,
at least in Prance.
Count Biemarck gave a grand dinner to Prince
Napoleon on the 12th.

Budding, l'hiladelohia, I'a.—GISNTLEMEN I beg
leave to call your especial attention to the papers
published by me, copies of which are now rega
l:illy mailed to you, the Mobile Daily Register
and .Mobile Sunday Times. The Regsster is the
oldest paper in the State, the largest, and has the
largest circulation in the South outside of New
Orleans. The high character long ago given to
it as the Hon. John Forsyth's paper insures for
it a widely extended circulation. Recently it has
had its circulation vastly increased by the con
solidation with it of the Advertiser, Times and
Evening News, all of which papers,with their very
considerable list,' purchased. The Sunday Times,
a semi-literary , sheet, very large and In I, has
already an immense city and country circulation,
and is rapidly gaining subscribers, especially -in
the States of Alabama, Georgia, Virginia, Mis
sissippi, Tennessee and Texas. In this city it is
universally read Sunday morning.
I am taking few advertisements for it, design
ing to depend mainly , upon its subscription lists
for profits. Positively, as a means of reaching
planters and country people, it has no equal. I
feel sure you may safely urge both the Sunday
Tines and Register upon your advertisers as af
fording unsurpassed advantages to them in
placing themselves before the Southern public.
The improved price in cotton, as well as the
larger crop than was expected, is having the ef
fect of brightening business prospects so much
throughout the entire South as to warrant
Northern businese houses in making extended
efforts to secure her trade. A great change has
come over business circles here in the last few
days. Good returns will comp to your patrons
for investments made in Southern advertising.
Yours, very respectfully
