SOMETHING ABOUT THE LI PR. STRUGGLES
. AND SUCCESS OF J'lIKAST.
The etory of Tommy Nast's artistic
career is a little peculiar. Ilia father
was a professional musician, and, when I
first knew Tommy, the old gentleman
was playing that extension brass ehove-out-and
pull Lack, force pump sort of old
fashioned horn, they used to have in
band, (a frieud says it is calhd a trom
bone ) in tho orchestra of Wa'l.tck's old
theatre, corner uf liroome and Broadway
at ten dollars a week.
Najt senior wanted Tommy to become
a musician, and to that end used to thrash
him with a leather trap most enthusias
tically and faithfully in order to make
him learn the scales on the violin.
Thomas, however, had a genius for draw
ing and knew it. Lie used to beg his
father to permit him to become an artist,
to all of which the truly conscientious old
German gentleman (now many years
dead) would reply wi:h additional doses
At last young Tliomas became acqtiain
tcn with Mr. lii-rghaus. now, and for
more than a dozen years- one of Frank
Leslie's chief attists ; and to Berghaua,
who was also a Germ in, lie confided all
his woes. He showed his drawing's to
Berghaua and to So! Ey tinge, who is one
uf the most delicate and f iiieiful Ameri
can draughtsman, and who was at that
time with Feslie ; and they seeing there
was really something in the boy, then
eleven years old, advised Lim to continue
bis efforts to convince Lis father that he
could earn more money as an artist than
as a .musician
Tommy went home that night, and to
the German parent having com'i iuat 12.
(miduiht;he thus remaiked :
'Father, I must be an artist If you
let me go and learn to draw in a year or
two I can earn twenty dollars a week ;
and in a few years after that I can bring
in from fifty to soveuly-five dollars every
week. If you m.iku me learn music I
m.iy slave all my life and I shall very
likely find himself at fii'iy years tIJ just
where yuu are now, playing for ten dol
lars a week iu somebody's baud, liable
to a discharge any minute, and out of au
engagement a quarter of the year, even
when things are at their best.
Whether it was the argument or the
determination of young Nast to learn to
draw iu spite of the parental forbidding
tli.it carried the point, I know not ; cer
tain it ii, however, that the next day
Tommy Nast entered Frank Leslie's em
ploy, and was assigned a desk belween
Berghaus and Eytinge, which thorough
artists and amible gentlemen gave Nast
all the regular instruction Le has ever
The young artist more than kept his
word ; in less thau a year he could not
only earn 20, but thrice that on Leslie's
paper aloue, besides making as much
more ou outside work. His father lived
to see that sou bringing Lome his bun
died dolliirs iu gold every Saturday
night, while Le was humbly toiling away
for the same old hard' v earned ten dol
lars. Nam's tudustry and imaginative genius
rapidly carried him forward in the profes
sion, and I presume that for the past ten
years there has not beeua week when his
woik, taking bii cartoons for illustrated
papers, his illustrations for books and
other business, has hot been equal to at
least S50 a day, and up to three times
.Naet's mother is a thorough German a
most estimable woman I am told, and ex
cellent mother, but she cannot speak, or
could not when I saw her first and last
a dozen words of English.
Several years ago Nast was iutroduced
to an English family consisting of the
father, mother, son and three daughters
The motLer is a fine specimen of the
thorough-bred English lady, and her
daughters ate like unto her. She is an
aunt of James Par ton, the biographer
he who has written tbe lives of Andrew
Jackson, Aaron Burr, Horace Greeley,
etc., and who is known all over tbe coun
try as one of the most versatile and ac
complished magaznist and men of letters
in the land. The eldest daughter, Sal lie,
of this lady, ( Mrs Edwards), Mr. Thomas
Nast married some nine years ago. They
have bad three cbddreu, all I thiuk now
living. So you see, if the caricaturist
dies, be leaves abundant material for a
new generation N. Y. Letter'.
New York city is erecting a new Na
tural History building eight hundred
feet long and six hundred feet wide the
largest building on this continent. Five
hundred thousand dollars were appropri
ated last winter by the Legislature to
commence it, and two hundred meu are
already blasting for its foundation. . It
will eventually cost $10,000,000, and
fifteen years will be occupied in its con

. Henry N. Smith is known throughout

and successful operators iu Wall street.
It was he who became so noted at the
Black Friday time as the bead of the

operators against the Erie railway ; and

ted to know what thecomtniiteeinteuded
to do about it. Without answering, tbe
members of the committee asked what
right he bad to lock up that amount of
money. I lien Le got angry and told
them it was none of their business ; that
the money was his own that he could do
what he liked with it ; and it was about
this time that tbe committee' fouud they
bad made a mistake. Smith collected
about filty dollars witness fees aud re
turned to New York, aud that was the
last of the silly investigation.
A gentleman who was a witness be-
fore the committee said that Smith actu-
allv carried the S5.000.000 on Lie uerson
for two days. - Thb lining of his coat
was filled with pockets, aud into these
the money was stored- Smith is about
thirty five or thirty eight yeats of age,
short of s:ature, slight of frame, aud red
of hair. The latter he wears cut close
and his whiskers a la militahe, or uut
ton chop, with moustache. His name is
not Henry M . nor Henry N. mitb, but
Norman Henry Smith. He is a native
of Tioga, Pennsylvania, a little village
which is shut iu with charming gracd
from the outside world by a circle of
hills, which in the fait presents such an
enchanting appearance that it clings to
one's memory forever. Iu this pretty
little village, this monster operator was
born, and he is to this day called plain
Tom Smith, a nick name he got when a
baby. It is nothing against Tom that be
spent his young days about as other vil
lage boys do aud it is nothing agaiust him
that be learned the thoemaker's trade
aud was an excellent workman
It is said there that Tom Smith can
make the best "fine" bout of any man iu
America. A love scrape, if I am correct-
ly informed, drove him from his hammer (
and lapstone and took him to Buffalo a
year or two before the war. While there
he attended a course of instruction in one
of the "Business Colleges" which were
go com eon then. From this be operated
in Buffalo in a small way, going finally
to Albany He could not long remain iu
such a place, and he turned his eyes to
ward New York. Hiscarcer as a mouey
maker is withouta parallel in history. It
would be idlu to estimate his wealth, for
to day it might be twenty millions and
He is called the successor of Jim Fisk,
bat this is an insult to him. He possess
es the same reckless daring but he brought
to his experience a keener aud more de
liberate judgment and intelligence than
Fisk had Besides he has noue of tbe
"fast'' qualities which Fisk possessed
He has no desire to display his wealth
ostentatiously ; he does not care to build
an opera house that be may have tbe
privilege of the green room, and he is not
likely to run a Hue of steamers merely to
show himself in an admiral's uniform, nor
to bIiow himself at tbe head of a regiment
at the cost of thousands of dollars. He
lives as becomes a very wealthy man,
and owns a number of tbe best horses that
money can buy, merely for bis own driv
ing. He has considerable money iuyes

he ha9 provided handsomely for his fath

Yesterday morning, something of a
commotion was created at the Westirn
Penitentiary, in Allegheny, by the dis
covery that two of the prisoners had dug
their way out of tbeit cell and made their
escape. An investigation revealed one
oflbe most bold aud ingenious methods
of escape that criminal records aff ird.
The two men who escaped were John
Carmichael, a miner by occupation, who
was couvicted iu this county, of man
slaughter, mid Luke Hush, a professional
burglar, who was com-niited from Arm
strong county for larceny. The two

.1 - . , ,
tbe men were out of rags carried a bag
, . , i
lull to their cell, and was bstoiitehcc to:
find the cell cmuty and the meu 0!ie.
An alarm was given, and au exatuiea-
, tiou iintuedi it- ly made At first their
raeansof escape was not noticed, but
presently a round bole immediately un
der the I iin and which was hidden by
it, was discovered aud proved a key to
the mysterious escape. A further inves
ligation revealed a tuunel uuder the wall
which came out a foot aud a half from
the wall on the ouUide. As befora sta
,e". the cell is situated about forty feet j
! from the wall, aud as the latter is sunk j
in the ground a distance of nine feet, the j
tunnel was uug about lea leet deep
order to avoid the wall.
Perhaps no other two men fn the iu
stitu'ion could have planned aud execu
ted such au escape with the same facility
as these Bosh being a professioal cracks
man was able, by his experience in such
'natters, to cut through the stone without
j lUe slightest noise, while, Carmich tel s
experience as a miner was used to ad
vantage in planning the tunnel in eider
to prevent a cave, and ia getting rid of
the dirt. In the cell were found the two
pair, of uniformed strrpe 1 pauts, and it
was ascertained that tha two men after
escaping, had entered a carpi titer shop
and stolen two pairs of colton overalls.
Carmichael, who is a tall man. it seems
had no trouble in climbing out of the hole
ou the outside of the wall, but his com
panion, who is a small man was not so
fortunate. Accordingly Carnmichael se
cured a post which he placed in the hole
and by tbis means Bash was able to climb
As soon as the escape was discovered
'he police were notified and since then
Lave been keeping a sharp lookout for
the men, but op to last night tbey bad
not been apprehended. A icward for
their arrest will probably soon be offer
ed. Certain other details of the escape
than those given above are withheld at

A well known B istou m reliant closed
his bouse at the S nt:h I'ud during the
summer aud being very ilc-iioua to guard
it securely against tha iuroads of burg
lars arranged a bear trap, which requires
two men to spring, in Lh wood shed,
through which any one must piss iu or
der to gitia acces.i to, th limine. Ha
went away autP remained otin rn::;tn,
when be came to the city fir a day, and
thought he would go and see if his h ui'o
was all light. He entered the front door
which he left open, readc aa examination
of the- f uiou apartments and finally
thought he would see that the back prem
ises were also secure. Forgetting hi
precaut'on against burglars, be walked
rapidly into tbe wood shed, and what
was bis consternation to find himself
caught fast iu his owu trap. He natur
ally stooped in his endeavor to. exti ica'.a
himself, aud by doing so o:;'y n 1',! ti
bis discomfort, inasmuch as he could uol
regain an upright position. Ilo shouted
furiously but without avail, bine nil Lis
neighbors were absent and so' he was
forced to remain in that pisitimi from ten
in tbe morning till four iu tho aftemoou
when bis son-iu law came to the bouse to
obtain something for bis wife. The yotsng
man was astonished to find all the divr-t
open, and on making a trwr of insp-c
tion, became convulsed at finding Lis
fatter in law in- such au unhappy situa

it destroys confidence. The person who
is guilty ot circulating malicious rtrport

like to know everything, and the other
thinks he caa tell him.
