No. 613 Jayne street.
We have examined Mr. Benson's picture with
the above title, now erected in the place of honor
in the penetralia of the Messrs. Earlea eget) .-
lishment, to our considerable edification and in"
struction. In its honest study, its conscientious
investigation of the manners, dress, architecture
and decoration of antique Persia, the painting
stands forward pre-eminently among the very
sparse efforts of a similar scholarly nature in our
national art. We understand that Mr. Bensell
has devoted to its preparation eight months of
laborious study, a good part of which consisted
in the perusal of the principal authorities upon
Assyrian and Babylonian history. This was un
doubtedly the right way to go to work, and ex
plains the distinction with which the picture im
presses the spectator, the sense of verisimilitude
which the latter involuntarily receives.
The court of the royal seraglio at Shushan,
with its hangings of white, green and blue,
"fastened with cords of fine linen and purple to
silver rings and pillars of marble;" its dinner
beds of "gold and silver," upon a variegated
pavement; the "drinking vessels of gold, the
vessels being diverse one from another;" this
atrium, with its oriental sumptuousness of falai_
lure, forms the scene; there are urns and gar.
lands, and the debris of a festival, with "royal
wine in abundance according to the state of the
king." From the cool and shadowy pavement,
whereon the feast is set, a stairway of imperial
breadth recedes into the distance towards the
upper chambers, its platform being crowned by
the strange winged animals familiarized to us by
Assyrian discovery; these imposing types of
wisdom joined to force, stretch their wings
of colored alabaster into the Persian blue,
affording the artist his most successful contrast
of broad and blended tints. Below, all is tumult:
it is the moment when the magnificent Jewish
odalisque, her oriental nature rebounding from
the historic swooning-fit of. .an hour or two be
fore, lifts her whole figure erect from the divan
and declares to her patrOn, her victim, her court
and her staves that "the adversary and enemy is
this wicked Haman !"
Hadassah, or Esther, the daughter of Abihail,
beauty with olive cheeks, curved nose and deep
black eyes and hair,stands in a momentarily statu
esque attitude bathe centre, her long and sinuous
figure hung with superb oriental linens and (.:ache
tnirs. Her slaves wait upon the guests. Hege
and another chamberlain stand behind the king
with enormous fans. The queen's women tend
the other feasters, and Haman, son of Hamme
datha the Agagite, in his place of honor at the
feet of the hostess, has just drunk from a golden
born, which a maiden waits to receive upon her
salver. Ignorant of the Hebrew birth of the
sultana, her tremendous denunciation deprives
him of his presence of mind, and he crouches
toward the marble floor with the wine-cup
clenched in his hand. and his insolence dissolved
in a panic. While he bows his curled and per
fumed head abjectly before the king's favorite,
Ahasuerus himself, in the Persian bonnet
wad weeds of state with which he
honors the queen's entertainment, starts
from his bed in a transport of tyrannic rage, his
mouth as it were just working to form the
•`word" at which, "while it went out of the
king's month—they covered Varnan'e face." The
install is so exactly caught that the more distant
servants have not perceived that anything is
amiss; they set theii queen's feast as they set
Vasktits,a little before, upon the same tables,with
sulky eastern submissiveness, and only those
about the persons of the three principal actors in
the scene appear to feel and bow before the
coming whirlwind.
The story of that swift hour, the hour that
sealed the deliverance of the Asiatic jews, is told
with great spirit, though somewhat theatrically,
in Mr. Bensell's picture; while the historical de
tails are represented with a minuteness that has
scarcely been reached except in two or three fa
mous historical "restorations" of the English
painting school, or in such French work as Doni's
Persian backgrounds for his illustrations of the
books of Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther.
I (Correvpondence of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin
PARIS. Tuesday, April 14, 1868.—Politics and
business are still a dead blank, religions ceremo
nies having been the chief occupation of the
seeson. It. has been generally remarked that
these latter have been made much more exter
nally prominent and splendid this year than on
previous occasions, the Emperor and Empress
and the Court setting the example both of quiet
retirement from all pleasure or business, and also
in more constant attendance at the chapel of the
Tuileries, where, too, the services were made
very ornate and solemn. On the morning of
Good Friday, the ceremony of the Adoration of
the Cross was performed in the Chapel, the altar
of which was brilliantly illuminated, and deco
rated with the rarest flowers. Only the Imperial
family and their immediate attendants were ad
mitted to approach and kiss reverently the
crucifix which was presented by the officiating
clergy. • But in the evening of the same day,
a small number of tickets were issued
to a rtii favored persons, who were
allowtyto attend the funeral services which
then tool: place. The scene was very striking,
every one 'present being required to be in deep
~ , ulotirning, and the entire Court and attendants
Mitering in the same attire, and in a sort of .
solemn procession. The Emperor and Empress
and Prince Imperial walked first and abreast, the
former in black evening dress with white cravat,
the Prince in black velvet and-black Bilk stock
ings;' the Empress in her native Spanish
costume, entirely of black silk, with the
mantilla as head dress, The group
, ;looked very striking, as was indeed the
whole ceremony and interior of the building, the
latter being hung throughout with black. Prie-
Dieux for the Emperor, the Prince and Empress
were placed in the centre, immediately in front
of the altar, and when they had knelt down a fine
chorus burst forth,followed afterwards by a Arise
rere of great sweetness and solemnity. The bear
ing of the Empress on these occasions is marked
by extreme devotion, and it is easy to perceive
how anxious she seems to communicate the same
impressions to her son. One would say that the
Emperor also began to assume the gravity of one
who is already cousin to a Cardinal, and may at
any moment find himself cousin to a Popo. It
is evident that the connection between the Tuile
ries and the Vatican grows daily more and more
intimate; and that the Imperial policy seeks to
clothe the next heir to the throne with a
religious as well as dynastic prestige,
in the eyes of the French people,. The cere.
Irony of / the first communion of the Prince
Imperial; which is to take place on the 20th
inst., will he made the most of for this purpose.
The benediction of his god-father, Pius IX., will
be conveyed to him by telegraph at the very mo
ment when he kneels before the altar Of Notre
Dame, and will be read to, or rather pronounced
over him, by the officiating priest, who will no
doubt be the Archbishop of Paris. It is evidently
intended to re-invest the next ruler of France pe
culiarly with the character and title of Eldest
Son of the Clirch,and to render him airraffonctug ,
as the ancients say, under that designation. It is
a perilous position for a modern sovereign to as
sume, who has been elected by universal suffrage
and on what are called revolutionary principles+.
And the more especially so, because he is likely
to find himself isolated in such a character, ned
almost without a colleague, unless it be that vir
tuous potentate, Queen Isabella, of Spain. The
Emperor of Austria has evidently gone on the
other tack, and as the Papal letter inferred, is
making himself quite unworthy of the title o
The little Prince himself has just started on a
tour into Brittany;—another significant fact, for
Brittany lathe most Catholic and legilltnist por
tion of the Empire. It is the first time that the
heir apparent has traveled alone, and "on his
own hook," as the saying is. thus making an
other step towards the assumption of public
character. I ought to mention that his mother
is having prepared for him a magnificent illumi
nated Prayer Book, for the ceremony of the 201 h,
after the pattern of the ancient Missals of the
fifteenth century. The Pope also intends sending
bun a costly token of his affection, for the same
The Munifrur of yesterday publishes a curious
report to the Emperor by the Minister of the In-:
tenor on the operation and effect of the new army
bill. The Minister,. somewhat bitterly, accuses
the "whole opposition" of uniting to frustrate
and misrepresent the measure. Notwithstanding
which. he adds, the patriotism of the people has
triumphed ever every attempt to mislead
it, and the new organization has been
carried out with complete success. The
sport asserts that the disturbances
t Bordeaux and Toulouse were got up entirely
by escaped convicts and ether val , , , abonds,and had
in reality nothing to do withlissatisfaction at the
nrollment of the National Guard. As a com
ment upon the above representations, the Libert
of yesterday declares that "hundreds of applica
tions for naturalization have been sent in to the
American Legation in Paris by French citizens.,
desiring to escape from the burden of the new
military service." The Pal fie replies to this,
patriotically and indignantly, by hoping that
General Dix will grant all such applications, by
which, it says. France will only lose citizens who
arc unworthy of their country and seek to aban
don it in the hour of danger. Of course, the re
presentation of the Liberte about "hundreds" of
pplications to General Dix is grossly exagger
ated. But there have doubtless been some such
applications, which could not, of course, be at
tended to,without breach of diplomatic etiquette,
by a resident ambassador. I myself
am aware of several Freneh families of
good position, who seriously contem
plated emigrating to the United States
when the new army bill was first promnigated.
But its conditions have since been so much mod
ified in form, and will be so mildly carried out
(at least at first) in practice, that serious opposi
tion to it may be almost said to have died away.
The Paris spring races commenced yesterday at
the Bois de Boulogne,and drew a large assemblage
of fashionables, notwithstanding the cold north
wind which has again visited us. The French
Jockey Club has added three new prizee.the fact
being that its finances are so flourishing that it does
not know what to do with its money. Its in
come now exceeds a million a year.- The show
of prize horses, and of the Hippie Society, takes
place this afternoon at the Palace of Industry, in
the presence of the Emperor, and may perhaps
afford subject for remark in my next letter.
The Prince or Wales In Ireland
[From the London Nowe, April 15.]
The Prince and Princess of Wales set foot to
day on Irish soil, and they are assured of a thou
zand-fold welcome from the gallantry and
courtesy of the nation,as well as from its loyalty.
Even disaffection will respect the guests of a peo
ple; and a nation of born courtiers will not vio
late in any jot the code of politeness. The pear
~nd the 'peasant, rich and poor, Protestant
.nd Catholic, Trojan and Tyrian, will
know no discrimination in the cor
diality of their welcome to a kind
hearted and well-meaning prince, and to a lady
chose grace, amiability and patient sufferings
, lave won and touched all hearts. The royal
emit is in one respect well timed. At the moment
when the House if Commons has virtually
pledged itself to a great act of national
justice it is fitting that the reigning
Jaunty should not be wanting in signs of good
will toward Ireland. It might be well if royal
visits had been earlier and more frequent.
* The quay remedy for Irish disallec
,loll is justice. But the signs of good will have
.heir value as pledges of good works. An appeal
to the loyalty of the people is an Implied promise
to fulfil the conditions on which loyalty depends.
The task of necessary repression, has been firmly
and judiciously performed. Its execution may
defy censure and may even exact approval, bat
it cannot win affection. For that other agencies
must be used, and the visit of the Prince and Prin
cess of Wales is an augury, we hope, of their em
ployment. Except in the rarest instances,lrish dis
affection to the English government has seldom
in recent times grown into actual disloyalty to
the person of the monarch or to the ruling dy
nasty. On the contrary, almost the only feeling
common to Irishmen of both creeds and all
ranks has been a hearty allegiance to the throne,.
in the ceremonial of which the venerable cathe
dral will be the scene. Protestant and Catholic
peers will find themselves side by side, =rod
bled by controversies as to whether the saint
who gives his name alike to the Church and their
knightly order was a Catholic, or a Protestant,
or a Primitive Christian, or, as Mr: Os
borne, on learned authority contends, a
myth, and but the shadow of a napae. They will
meet as Irishmen and as loyal subjects. Faction,
party and sect will for the time be absorbed in a
common patriotism and allegiance. The less
courtly crowd which will gather on an occasion
probably as interesting to the royal visitors at
the Punchestown race course will be animated by
substantially the same feeling. In giving occa
sion to them the Prince and Princess of Wales
will render a real aid to the larger and wiser
statesmanship of the future. It is to be hoped
that euch help will be renewed from time to time.
Death of Mrs. E. J. Morris—A=lerlean
Condolence with the illtaluter.
At a meeting of American citizens resiling at

sulate General, on Saturday, March 28, 1868, Rev.
D. Hamlin was called to the chair, and J. H.
Goodenow chosen secretary. The following pre
amble and resolutions were unanimously

strength which cometh from above.
kr.quired, That we retain sad yet grateful re

while the formalities wnz gone through with.
The Mayor received the Sergeant in these words:
"Serq,ant Bates, Sir: Unclerstandin ez we do,
that yoo chivalrously made a wager (wich is a
bet) with a Wisconsin ablishnist that yoo cood
walk from Vixbure to Washinton carryin the
Amerikin flag unfurled without heirs insulted nor
nothin, and heven receeved testimony from
leadin Democrats nv Wisconsin. wich is entirely
satisfactory to us, that yon are not in no sense,
nor never wnz at any time, in sympathy with
the Ablishen, or ez they falsely style theireelves,

pitalities nv Petinsville. And ez there are re
porters present, let me remark, sir, that yoor ex
perience hez shoved how falsely we hey bin
judged by the crooel persecutors uv the Northern
States. Yoo hey bin met on evry hand with
nuthha but kindness. Southern hospitality uv
the"broadest kind hez bin extended to yoo. Yoo
hey bed a thaw off uv evry plug—yoo hey—bed
yoor suck out nv evry bottle, yoor nose-'shows
that sence yoo entered the Sunny , South yoo hey
not bin allowed to taste water. wich is our idee
uv hospitable treatment. Wat. any deer sir,
does this go to show ? Wat does this prove
Ef Charles Sumner for instance, or Judge Kelley
bed bin so presumnslins, or any other Republi
kin, ez to attempt Bich a feet, the outraged
Southern hart wood hey biled over and he wood
hey bin toted to pieces. What does it prove? It
proves that 'taint the flag we object to so much
ez it is the men who hey bin in the habit uv car
ryin it. In the hands uv a constitooshenel
Dimocrat its the same old flag it alluz
wnz. In snch hands. its rustle sounds
in our eers like the crack uv the nigger
whip, and the site thereof is soothin. For when
the flag wuz in their hands, we hunted niggers
under its folds in the streets uv Boston. Under
that flag we shot Lovejoy in Alton, and sunk
Bailey's press in the Ohio at Cincinnati. Under
the shadow of that blessed flag we sold niggers
at auction in Washinton, and that flag, that
symbol uv Freedom, would have floated over the
deck uv every slave ship wich sailed from Africa,
but for the unjust and scoisidle laws which forced
the philanthropists in the bizuis to sale under
other penants. In your hands, and the hands
uv each ez you, that flag is to us the old flag It
wuz then, and its sacred to us beeoz under it
we cood do all these things. That's why we love
it, and that's shy we tolerate yoo with it. fled
it remained rich we nevef wood he raised our
hands agin it. When sieh ez Polk and Fillmore
and Bookanon hed the control! uv it we wuz
satisfied with it and reverenced every stripe and
every star—the speer heel that surmounted it and
the staff wich upheld it—for to us that flag meant
suthin. It meant freedom for us—free trade
in niggers—it meant suthern soopremacy—it
meant the rite to buy niggers—sell niggers—
import Diggers—export niggers—flog niggers
—hunt niggers. So long ez the flag was Bich
we loved it. But when the North dispooted our
control, and put it in the hands uv A. Linkin. a
Ablishunist, it wuz our flag no more. Then we
felt It must come down—that its mission wnz
ended and that to us it wuz nothin. I fired onto
thattflag. I raised my hand agin it, and proud/II
am. But borne by a Democrat—a old style Dem
ocrat—a Democrat who stuck to us becoz he wuz
afeered of nigger ekality, it is wunst more the
same old flag and we reverence it. Why
then, when yoo, a carrying , this emblem uv the
nashun's grander, kin walk all over the South,
where all is peece and so much affeckshun is
manifested for the flag, why do they keep a army
to overawe us? Why—"
A interruption here occurred. A shot wuz
?nerd, and the crowd rushed to see wat it wuz.

Yliss Fanny B. Price as “Leah. 97
Miss Fanny B. Price made her first appearance
in this, her native city, at the Arch Street Theatre
last night, in the drama of Lead the Forsaken.
Her reception was cordial, and there was an evi
dent determination on the part of the audience
to treat her with liberality and to recognize what
ever merit she might possess. Her personation
was not in any great measure a success. Miss
Price has a comely perscn,and a pleasant voice—
albeit her enunciation is not so distinct, as we
could wish. Her conception of the part was
strictly in accordance with precedents, and she
seemed fully imbued with the spirit of the text.
She can, however, hardly lay claim to rank very
high as a tragic actress. With all her natural
advantages, she lacks force and intensity.
There was not depth enough to her performance
last evening. In the most thrilling passages of
the play she displayed a very painfill want of the
passionate power which establishes a bbnd of
sympathy between artist and spectator. No one
present felt deeply touched even by the most
pathetic of the many sad episodes in the drama.
At times, laced, this need was sogreat that the
incongruity between the text and the impression
made by the performance, produced anything
but a serious effect. The boundary line between
the serious and the absurd is so narrow, that a
trifling deficiency will pass it. If that which is
intended to be tragical is anything less than, the
design, it will be farcical, and we are afraid some
of the scenes lost evening partook of this latter
But it is hardly fair to judge of Miss Price's
qualities by this single performance. She la
bored under more than one disadvantage. In
the first place she attempted a part which was not
only entirely beyond her powers, but one in
which the play-goers of this city have seen Ris
tori, Janausehek, and other great artists. There
is 'hardly room for any comparison in this case,
but such as we can make is utterly ruinous to
Miss Price. With the efforts of these actresses
fresh in our memory, it is impossible to perceive
any great merit in that of Miss Price. It would
have been much better if she had chosen some
other character in which to make her debut. In
deed, wisdom will "mark her for its own" if she
will determine to forsake "Leah the Forsaken"
and attempt some less exalted part. She can
never hope to acquire even moderate success in
this one.
Another difficulty last evening was the conduct
of a portion of those who sustained the subordi
nate characters in the piece. Some of the com
pany performed their parts conscientiously and
correctly, but there was a very evident determi
nation on the part of most of them to do all in
their power to binder and prevent the success of
the play. - There was halting, hesitation, absurd
and inexcusable forgetfulness of parts,and in some
instances a plain intention to turn the whole
thing into a broad burlesque. But, while this
must have annoyed' the debutante, it does not in
any degree account for her lack of ability. If she
possessed genius she would have been great in
spite of the malice or stupidity of her supporters.
In all kindness to this young lady, and with a
desire to deal as liberally with her as we can, in
honesty to the public and to truth, we advise her
to quit the constellation of histrionic stars and
enter some good stock company where her tal
ents will win for her at least a good local reputa
tion. She may be assured that the people and the
reputable press, ready as they are to recognize
great and genuine ability, can never justly accord
her any high degree of praise in her personation
of such a character as "Leah."

RICIHN4 :8 OPERA TROUPE.—Benallet's Grand

the Academy of Music last evening, to a large
audience. The performance was in ' every re

the opera is filled was interpreted with rare skill,
all of the artists acquitting themselves in the
most creditable manner. This - evening Gonnod's
opera Faust will be given with a great cast, upon

hope the house will be crowded.
