Francis B. Carpenter, Six Months at the White House, Xxi. (search)
Xxi. Judge Bates, the Attorney-General, was one day very severe upon the modern ideal school of art, as applied to historic characters and events. He instanced in sculpture, Greenough's Washington, in the Capitol grounds, which, he said, was a very good illustration of the heathen idea of Jupiter Tonans, but was the farthest possible remove from any American's conception of the Father of his Country. Powell's painting in the Rotunda, De Soto discovering the Mississippi, and Mills's equestrian statue of Jackson, in front of the President's House, shared in his sarcastic condemnation. He quoted from an old English poet — Creech, I think he said — with much unction:-- Whatever contradicts my sense I hate to see, and can but disbelieve. Genius and talent, said he, on another occasion, are rarely found combined in one individual. I requested his definition of the distinction. Genius, he replied, conceives; talent executes. Referring to Mr. Lincoln's never-failing fund of

Mayor and Mrs. Wallach gave many grand dinners and receptions and one ball so resplendent as to rival anything, save a fancy-dress affair. We recall the venerable John J.

ht of these stores unfolds a taste which the man himself never dreamed he possessed. He gazes, and, lo! he too is a thinker and a student, instead of a half-wakened brute, born only, as the Roman says, to consume the fruits of the earth. He no longer merely digs or cumbers the ground, or hangs a dead weight on some braver soul. He thinks--and his spreading pinion lifts his fellows. Mr. Waterston taught this in the anecdote he mentioned, of a glance at Franklin's urn first revealing to Greenough that he was a sculptor. You know the great John Hunter, the head of English surgery, constructed with his own hands a museum of comparative anatomy a hundred feet long, and every spot filled with some specimen which his own hands had preserved in the leisure of a large city practice. A lady once asked him, Mr. Hunter, what do you think is to be our occupation in heaven? I do not know, replied the old mall; I cannot tell what we shall do there; but if the Almighty God would grant me the

onement in prospect, and I merely asked Professor Greenough if he would not call at my house on Phillips Place the following evening, with Mrs. Greenough, because I had a very important subject that in no hurry to leave us, but at last, when Mr. Greenough had his hand upon the knob of the door, heth his natural enthusiasm, and both he and Mrs. Greenough promised their heartiest cooperation. Theirs were no formal expressions.

erald. It has the appearance of truth, although the first report of the occurrence has been denied by the Washington papers: On Board Steamer Mount Vernon,May 20th, 1861. The steamer Baltimore got aground last night at the mouth of the Potomac. A propeller, with a heavy gun and full of men, attacked her there, and out of the squad of twenty on board the Baltimore, four were killed and five mortally wounded. Two of those killed were Cole and Lieutenant Denice, of Company D, and Greenough, of Company G. Whelpley, of Company D, was mortally wounded, and so were Thall and Ferguson. Three others were slightly wounded with splinters. Our guard heard the firing, and ran back to assist the Baltimore, but it was all over. The Baltimore's guard fought like men, and the steamer's side was covered and her deck was slippery with blood and strewn with splinters.--The Secessionists had a heavy gun, and fired grape and canister, and had at least one hundred men. We helped get the Bal

Mrs. Greenough. The Nashville (Tenn.) Banner says of this lady, whose scathing letter to Seward we published a few days since: The story of this lady's confinement and suffering might be made the thread of a romantic novel. The lady herself, whom we know, would make an interesting heroine to a story, play or poem. She is pretty, dashing, and talented. Die Vernon and Mrs. Greenough might be coupled as women of a kindred class She is an aunt of Mrs. Douglas, quite as showy and much more brilliant in point of intellectual-endowment.
