QUISCY ADAMS to our city. Party feelings and po
litical differences were quite forgotten for the
one feeling appeared to exist—u desire to au l
Yap& to a guest so distinguished as Mr. Adams. Even
tisatheavy and incessant rain with which we were via

witis,,t,be arrangements previously agreed upon. At
about 11 o'clock, the procession left the Exchange,

adverted to the honesty of purpose which had ever'
governed Mr. Adams in a long life devoted to the
public service, and the gratitude we owed him for
having ever sustained our best and dearest interests.
Mr. M'Candless adverted to many other. topics, but
our position prevented us from hearing him distinctly.
It mss, however, a most happy effort, and every way
worthy or 'the speaker.
'Ur. Adams, in reply, apologised for his untimely
al/jai/I'in our city, and stated that the bark that bore
him, 'appeared to sympathise in his desire to visit
Pittsburgh, and had brought him somewhat sooner
than he 'expected. He spoke of the gratitude he was
under to the citizens of Pittsburgh, for having sustained
him so nobly some years ago; when surrounded with
difficulties he had received more support from this
place than from any other in the Union, his7own dis
trict and the city of Rochester, New York alone excep
t'ed. He explained the cause of his visit to the west
—to Cincinnati it was one of purely a scientific nature,
disconnected with politics, and he had refrained from
any allusion to the exciting pelitical topics of the day,

AyDSi,,AVEßY.—The.Gdiette pu lis .-
ing a leiter from. Daniel O'Connell, is reply to an
address from thelAepcialers of Cincinnati, on the sub
ject of American slavnry. We certainly can see no
reason why this letter it published; Daniel O'Connell's
opinions of slavery aro well known; they have been
given to the:stead, time after time, and, although the
entlinahotat peculiar Who Irish character, has impell
ed him to speak of Amerrkan inarirttions in no very
just or cOmplim en t ary terms,the philanthril;ic motives
which imrellecl him to utter them, will scarcely be
questi oaed by any liberal American. There is no
half way with him; no mincing of words; no despicable
calculations of policy; but what he thinks he says, just
as an honest Irishman would do.
IT the publication of this letter by cert ant papers '
be (deal pied to injure the cause of Repeal, it will full
far short of its purpose. The American people, wheth•
er mai ve or adopted, will not certainly hold the Irish
nation responsible for Daniel O'Connell's vagaries.—
They would encourage and sympathise with the Iri.(11
in their noble straggles for their rights, if the great agi
tator were to abandon the field to-day, and oppose 'the
very measure he now aupports with such vigor. Sureli
these oditars wool I not have us refuse our sympathy

I most open and shameful fraud wrested from them, sim-
Iply because one prominent citizen of that country May
I have spoken harshly or unjustly of uzor our institutions.
Yet such ttit?aio tn he their wish—elie why publish
this letter of O'Connell, the argument of which he has
often before expressed.

llsi*The annexed interesting notice is from a London
paper directly connected with the progress anti sketch
of the life of Benjamin West, entitled tb' "Illustrated
Politechnical Review," whi Ai, it will be seen, takes
notice of the wonderful compositian which is now on
exhibition in 4th street, at Philo Hall. over the May

The name of Bonjatoil West is a :.wiatva with the
pmgress of the fine arts in this country, diming a long
and interesting period, vi ben we were shut out frum
any intercourse with the continent, awl haul to rely up
on our own industry. taste and talent, for improvement.
The great m odels of antiquity could not be studied by
the British artist, nor haul he the world fir his specta
tors. The zealous patrons of the art were but few, and
their judgment as well as their taste, was necessarily
limited; a class of paintings of an inferior character.
were, for the most part, collected in the kingdom, nod
that incentive to excellence which the best examples
excite was wanting. Benjamin West, although his
sanguine admirers a ssert it, d oe s no t d eserve to h e .
classed with Michael Angelo and Raphael, was a geni
us of unordinary character; he ev.hibited, dining a long
career, the possession of mental faculties, which secu-i
red for him the respect and esteem of all who kueW'
the man. Although born in the year 1731, in the State
of Pennsylvania, in the United States, he was on both
sides descended from English parents. A singular
anecdote is related of his early taste and of his intuitive
perception. At the age of seven he was left alone in
care of a baby in the cradle; he amused himself with
' drawing its likeness, although he had never seen a
picture or an engraving, and most certainly had never
seen any one attempt to delineate the features of anoth
er. His early fondness of drawing increased upon him.
land there are curious stories afloat of the way he took
I to furnish himself with materials and the means of fal
loWing his inclinations. The fur on the tail of a favor
ite black cat was adapted by him to supply the place of
a camel's hair brush. A friend of the family who visit
ed his father's house, was so delighted with the pros
, peas of excellence held forth by West, that he present
' ed him with some engravings to copy, and some can
vass prepared for the easel; several sleepless nights of
anticipation of pleasure of such rich treasures were
r In the year 1760, West made his first visit to Italy,
where his observations upon what he saw, attracted as
much attention as did his retaining his hat upon his head
when presented at court to some of the sovereign prin
ces. In 1763 ho came to England; his first visit was
to Hampton Court, where now arc preserved many of
his best paintings. Here may he seen the works which
were so highly estimated by George the Third. In
what is called the Queen's drawing room, is hung the
'Departure of Regulus from Rome,' a subject proposed
by the King, who nt the first interview with West, de
' sired an attendant to bring a volume of Livy, and read
ing the passage to him, gave orders for the execution of
a painting. When it was finished and placed before
his Majesty, he expressed the greatest satisfaction, and
then commenced a partiality for the artist which It;sted
during a period of forty years. 'Humilear making his
son swear implacable hatted to the Romans' is likewise ,
in the same chamber, as well as the 'Death of General
Wolfe.' From this singular apartment, all the particu
lar merits of West as-in artist may lie observed—that
ho had great versatility of talent, that his conceptions
were remarkable for force, and his compositiotts 'far
perspicuity and propriety. In the National Gallery is
the celebrated composition of 'Christ healing the Sick,
—for which the Gniverners of the British Institution
presented him with three thousand guineas. A copy he
also made, worthy of his genius, nt Windsor castle,
and a third one, which he presented to the Philadel
phia Hospital, enabled the committee of that institu
tion to realize a sum sufficient to enlarge the hospital
of the city so as to contain thirty additional beds.
On the death of Sir Joshua Reynolds. in .1791, he
was elected President of the Royal Academy, a post
which he filled, with only a short interval, until the
time of his death in the year 1820. His funeral was
honored by some of the most distinguished persons;
he was interred with great public demonstrations of
respect in Si. Paul's Cathedral. He left behind hint
imperishable records of his name, and all wit, knew

Kett was appealed to by all, as his council had been
found correct in every emergency. lie declined point
ing oat any cnerse for his companions to follow, re
marking, that their doom was sealed!
A hasty consultation waS held, and it was agreed
that the boat should attempt to pass the breakers!
Daggett kept his hand on the helm. merely remarking
that it "was about the best thing they could do, but
that every one must prepare to meet a watery grave!'

She rode the first, second and third, beautifully,
but was swamped in the fourth! Dagger tied a hand
kerchief to the ring bolt, for the putpose, of sustainiug
himself, but he was not seen again.—He sank to the
coral caves of the deep, with three °t his companions.
Peace to his everlasting soul!
It is proper bete to remark, that there was but one ' ,
reason for the adoption of the sad alternative of at
tempting to cross the breakers. if the boat stood out
to sea, destruction was inevitable, and the frightful con-:
viCtion flashed upon the minds of the little band, that
:heir bodies would be eaten by the monsters of the
deep! To attempt the breakers would, in their opin
ion, prove equally disastrous, but there was a chance
that some of them might escape, and if they did not,
their bodies would be swept by the surges on shore,
and be buried. Fearful, indeed, was their 'destiny !
