by richness of material to select from;
but tho government has added several
statues, so that an wo enter from tho ro

occupying Boston: "Sir, night is ap
proaching; mi tinmcdluto answer is ex
pected. Both legiments or none." Who
that looks at this well raised, forceful
flguro will doubt tho truth of hbtory
which records that both regiments wcro

than this poor but Incorruptible forerun

Hancock, hud tho honor of being ex

Next to Adams stands a flue liguro in

hand held In front with fist doubled bel
ligerently, head up, oyes shooting defi
ance the wholo poso ono of igor
nnd victory, and demanding tho sur
render of Ticondorogn in tho name of
Jehovah and tho Continental congress.
Ethan Allen is tho hern of tho young,
known ubovo most of his greater con
temporaries, nnd tho artist has properly
preserved all tho spirit of tho hero and
his deeds, though of tho man himself no
portrait Is known to jiosterity. A truly
martial figure this, with its epaulets,
cockado with rosette, broad sash w ith
heavy gold tassels, rising three feet taller
than its life sizo neighbor, Trumbull, and
with n great marblo boot f out teen inches
long nnd six braid. Ills is the only
covered head in thonugust assemblage.
In his neighbor, Lewis Cass, tho latest
comer In tho gallery, wo find our first
swallow tail. His is n portly llguio,
with a strong, lino face, a drawn, obsti
nate mouth. This sculptor shows us
that neither toga nor uniform is neces
sary in tho making of an heroic flguro.
At tho feet is n strong box full of papers
and books. Could tho artist have meant
this ns n suggestion of bonds mid money,
denoting Cass ns tho only rich man in
tiio Pantheon, mado n millionaire by his
lucky purchase for $3,000 of COO acres of
