A Fine Picture.
Dayton & Co., No. 87 Park Row, N. Y., have
issued an elegant engraving of Thorwaldsen's
celebrated sculptures of Christ and his Apos-
tles. It is exceedingly well done for a lytho
graph, the distinctive features of the characters
being completely given. The group is inclosed
iu an illumination of exquisite beauty, and many
finely delineated Scripture scenes, such as John's
Preaching in, the Wilderness, The Last Supper,
Christ blessing Little Children, etc. There seems
to be an Jimmied disposition, lately, to provide
a superior class of religious engravings for prat
lies. This sample is one of the very beet.
The picture will be an ornament to any parlor,
as well as a subject of profi table study for any
family. • Horace ,Greely, of the Tribune, and Dr.
Prime, of the Observer, differ in many things, but
they unite in commending this Picture, and
in saying that money sent to Mr. Dayton will be
certain to bring, in return, all he promises.
The Oil Region.
The diooveries of oil in North-Western Penn
sylvania, are still extending. It is already a
source of much wealth, and if the supply shall
prove eximnetless, oil is likely to follow next after
coal and iron in the miners/ productions of Penn
sylvania. We oopy from an exchange, as follows
The oil operations - are still in progress at an in
creasing rate, the number of wells now in the
course of boring being almost incapable of a cor
rect estimate. At Franklin, Pa., they have a
well, known as the celebrated Evans well, which
they maintain is superior, to the Drake well, or
any other in the vicinity of Titusville. The oil is
not confined to any one county or district. Dis
coveries have been made through the whole
North-western part of the State, and in one county
of Ohio, and it is probable that future discovery
will increase' these boundaries. The oil is found
at various depths;
in some instances, as near the
surface as twelve feet; in others, only at a depth
of twenty times that distance.
The Cleveland Herald states that oil has been
discovered in Trumbull County, Ohio. A farmer
in Mecca dug a well, aud'at the depth of twenty
five feet struck a rock from which oil oozed out in
considerable quantities. He went further and
found water, but so impregnated with oil as to be
unfit for nee. Some oil speculators leased the
farm, Rld are now skimming' the fluid from the'
surface of the water.
The Convention of Republicans, and other , op
ponents tciihe Administration, which met at Har
risburg, last week, seems to have been an exciting
000asion to politioians. There is, at such times,
much talk, a portion of which may indicate the
state of popular 'feeling, and the current of "na
tional events—a current, however, subject to
impediments and changes.
The Convention nominated Col. ANDREW CUR•
gm, of Bellefonte, as the party, candidate for
Governor. It also recommended the Hon. Simon
Cameron, now United States Senator for Pennsyl
vania, as a suitable person for President, and In
structed the Delegates from this State to the
Chicago Convention, to support him as the party's
nominee; the vote of the State k be east as a unit,
and for Mr. Cameron, as long as Ms name may be
'before the body.
The resolutions relative to the great national
agitating question, may be worthy of recOrd, as
showing the sentiments of a powerful party in

Resolved, That, believing . Slavery to be an elegy

we are unalterably opposed to its extension into
RaoNed, That to maintain inviolate the rights
of the States, 'and' esipeoially the right. of each
State to order and control its own domestic insti

perfection and endurance of our political fabric
depends; and we denounce now, as heretofore, the
lawless invasion by armed force of the soil of any
State or Territory, no matter under what pre
texts, as among the gravest of orioles.
Resolved, That it does not enter into the scheme
of the Opposition party to seek . the abolition of
slavery in the States where it now exists, but to
leave the amelioration and ultimate abandonment
of the system to the moral, religions, and econo

Resolved, That to the union or the States this
nation owes Its unprecedented increase in popnla•

resources, its rapid augmentation of wealth, its
happiness at home and its honor abroad, and
that, consequently, we hold in abhorrence all
machinations ,for disunion, come from whatever
source they , •
Resolved, That While we are now opposed, as
we ever have been, to the extension of slavery,
we hail the people of the South as brethren, in
whose prosperity we rejoice, and whose conetitn•
tional rights and privileges we are prepared to
sustain and defend. That in the spirit of good

sections of our common country come in conflict,
we stand on the ground of mutual forbearance,
believing that a fraternity of feeling is a ohief

The Inauguration of Clark Mills' Statue
The anniversary of the birth of George Wash.
ington was celebrated at the National Capital on
Wednesday, the 22d inst., in a most imposing and
patriotic manner, notwithstanding the extreme
inclemency of the weather. The immediate occa
sion of the demonstration was the inauguration of
the Equestrian Statue of Washington, ordered
by Congress from Clark Mills, Esq., at a cost of
$50,000, soon after the successful erection of his
Equestrian Statue of General Jackson. The Elev.,
enth Regiment of New York was present, by
invitation, and comprised six hundred and forty
seven men, all told, including the baud and drum
corps. The ringing of bells, and the display of
flags, streamers, and decorations in all directions,
was in harmony with the great occasion. The
Government and city offices were closed, and
there was a general holiday.
The procession, comprising many splenclici t look-
log military oompanies, alt the Government au
thorities and employees, from the President down
to pages, Masonic, and other similar A.ssociations,
Faculties, and students of Colleges, Literary,
&tontine, Benevolent Societies, Fire Companies,
artisans, citizens, and strangers, was very long
None of the Diplomatic Corps were present.
They were assigned a place in the programme im
mediately after the Judges of ,the Supreme Court
of the United States, but thie they declined to
occupy, for the reason, ft is said, that their place
should be directly after tee Executive officers of
the Government. This point of etiquette was
previously raised on the occasion of .the funeral
of Post Master General Brown, and, has not yet
The column reached the President's house at
about four o'clooli, under an nnolonded sun. The
view of the procession as.it neared the cirdle of
the great point of attraction, woe spiekidid. The
precession having reached the circle, tba military
wheeled to the right of the enclosure, while the
Prominent civilians :
ans entered it and laalt, seats on
the platform. The Cabinet officers. With the ex
ception of Secretary Floyd, sat together. The
President, Viols President, and Clark 'Mills, the
artist, were in proximity to each other; aid the
orator of ties day was, of coarse, conspicuous.
The platforms was tastefully decorated with the
sags of England, France, Russia, Prussia, Aus
tria, Bratil, Peru, Chili, the Netherlands, Bain.
- dor,lesomark, Portugal, Sardinia, Central Amer
iea, Naitites, Spain, Mexico, Buenos Ayres, Para
-gusy, and Rome. Oar own dug waved above all,
and the desk was profusely decorated with the
stare and stripes. •
THE INAUMEATION ©MEMORIES
commenced at five (Meek, by a prayer by the
Rev. Br. Nadal, of the Methodist Episcopal
(Thumb, which was followed by a very able, elo
quent, and patriotic oration by Hon. Thomas S.
Bocook, of Va. f the orator of the day. Mr. Bo
cock was greeted with general and repeated
cheers. He spoke without any notes, whatever,
and though be wits physically indisposed, acquit
ted himself in a manner that elicited the warmest
encomiums on his style of oratory. George C.
Whiting, Esq., Grand Master of the Grand Lodge
of the District of Columbia, then proceeded to
conduct the Masonic ceremonies, and after ad
dressing the President of the United States,
extended to him the gavel, who, on receiving it,
made a brief but appropriate speech, as follows:
" FELLOW-CITIZENS-I accept the auspicious
omen-now presented to us in this calm sunset
almost without a cloud. The early pare of the
day wag boisterous. Many accidents also occur
red to delay the progress of these ceremonies.
But these occurrences have terminated as, thank
God, always has been the ease in the history of
our country. if storms and tempests beset us in
; the morning, the end of the day is still, clear,
bright, and animating. Stroh, I trust, will ever
be the issue of the gloom and darkness that for a
season appear to envelop us. (Applause.) The
honorable and important dutylas been assigned
to me of dedicating this Statue of Washington,
which is a noble production of native American
genius. This welcome and grateful task I now
proceed to perform. Standing here on this beau
tiful and commanding position, surrounded by
Senators and Representatives of all the Slates
of the Confederacy, and by a vast assemblage
of our fellow—citizens, civil and military,
and in full view of the noble, Potomac which
Washington loved eo well, and' of the Shores of
the 'ancient Commonwealth which gave him
birth, I now solemnly dedicate this Statue to
the immortal memory of the Father of hie
Country. (Applsiuse.) , I perform this act of
pious devotion, not in the name of the people of
the North, or, the South, the East, or the West;
not in the name of those who dwell on the waters
of the Atlantic or of the Pacific, but in the name
of the whole American people of the United
States, one and indivisible, now and forever.
(Loud applause, and cries of ,4 Hurrah for Old
Buck.") May the God of our fathers preserve
the Constitution and the Union for ages to come.
May they stand like the everlasting hills, against
which the tempests from every quarter of the
heavens shall beat in vain. In a word, may they
endure so long as the name of Washington shall
be honored and cherished among the children of
men. (Renewed and prolonged applause.) May
Washington Oity, which he founded, continue
througuout many generations to be the Seat of
Governmomt of a great, powerful, and united
confederacy. Shduld it ever become a ruin by a
dissolution of the Union, it will not, like the
ruins of Balbeck and Palmyra. be merely a mon
ument of the vanity of human greatness, buy it
will teach the lesson to all the dwellers upon
iarth that our grand political experiment has
failed, and that man is incapable of self-govern
ment. May such a direful disaster to the human
race be averted, and in the language of Solomon
at the dedication of the Jewish temple, '‘, May
the Lord our God be with us, as he was with our
fathers. Let him not leave us nor forsake us."
(Applause.) May this be the_prayer of all pres•
eot, and may each one return to his home in
heart more ardently patriotic and more deter
mined to do his whole duty to God and his country
than when we assembled here to-day."
Slark Mills, the artist, then advanced, giving
the order to unveil the Statue. In the burry to
do this, the attendants did not perform their duty
perfectly, and only a part of the Statue was re
vealed. Meanwhile, the thundering of cannon,
sounds of music, throat-straining cheers and ex
pressions of wild delight, greeted the exhibition.
The waving of bats and handkerchiefs by persons
'within and outside the enclosure, was a noticeable
feature ; and these signs of joy were also made
by persons on housetops, in trees, and other tee
vated points. Clark Mills being loudly called
for, addressed the assembly in a brief speech,
after which the immense concourse gradually dis

Doctor himself :
" SYMPTOMS OF h. DISEASIM L:van.—Pain in
the right side and sometimes in the left, under

alternate with lax; dull, heavy sensation in the

the annual income bad been satisfactory, having ,

was 468,953,000. The estimated expenditures
for the ensuing year were £70,100,000, and the
estimated income from existing resources would
only be 400,700,000, and an apparent deficit of
49,400,000. To meet this, he proposed an in
come tax for the year of 10d in the £1 on in
comes above $l6O, and 7d , on•incomes below
that sum, which would give a surplus of nearly
half a million. The army estimates are 415,-

celebrated Original Painting of tho
COURT OF DEATH,
at the unpreceilenteAl low price of
ONLY ONE DOLLAR EACH.
Szza t 23 131/ 31 INCITES.
The lowest regular price for engravings of the size and
quality of this is ss—and in answer to the question, "How
can they be sold for One Dollar?" the subscriber would state
that instead of issuing 5,000 copies at $5, he issues 100,000
copies ht $l. Tho main expense of such a work is not in the
paper and printing, but bi- getting up the plates. If 5,000
only are sold, $5 Is but a fair price. But if 100,000 are sold
at $l, the aggregate profits are larger than on the 6,000.
The Original Painting, of which the Engravings ate a
PAC-SIMILE copy, was painted by Rembrandt Peale in the city
of Baltimore, In 1520. and has been the study and admiration
of tone of thousands of our citizens. It hay long been valued at
Death is personified as a ICing or Monarch, and thorn is not
a skeleton or anything repulsive In the picture.
There are TWENTY-TURES PITEVZIEED FIGURES in the en
graving, and arranged into five groups, presenting living
representationsof Death, War, Sensual Pleasure, Intemper-,
ante, and the Triumphs of Christian Faith over the Terrors
It is a work to delight the eye and improve the heart. It
can be studiedand understood by a child, while its sublime
conception affords ecope to the strongest imitation.

The subscriber wan advised to have the drapery of the fig
ures brilliant and showy, to gratify the taste of the "country
people," but he determined to imitate exactly the rich mel
low tints of the original painting In this respect. The wisdom
of this decision is verified not only by the Artiste In this
city, but by the venerable Renibrandt Peale him*); as will
be seen by the following unqualified certificate :

drudgery of family sewing, and at the lame time to pro--
dice a machine that could be profitably used for =artists*
turirig' purposes; bet, strange - to say. out of this large
number of fiewing,Machines only ome half dozen , bare
been proven to be of practical value; and of this small
number not one has in it combioed theittiviniteges - of it
family and, mannfactoring machine. There are Imre,
heavy,' noisy, cumbrous. and "complicated machines, de'
etned for heavy work, that answer the-purpose, very well;
while there are other, of light mechanism and delicate
adjustments, which parietal on' light work to edvaiitage;
and , while.the former are exclusively confined to heavy
woric,.the Tatter are of little value except on light fabrics
Therefore , I take great pleasure, in'stating the important
fact that 'Mr. HOWE, the original inventor of Sewing
Machines, has recently perfected his Shuttle 'Machine so ce
to combine, in a much smaller• space ,and lese
menial:ter*, the' strength and 'durability of the maanface ,

delictoi of 'movement and ease of operation peculiar to the
Melly menhines, and which renders this the only machine
