;It wns cold and dreary Winter; thick the
' mow lay on the trround,
'And the- wind it whirled shrilly, wltf a sad
na msariiitti sound;
Ttroach many a rapping cranny came the
howllntf of the I'iant,
And the strargler arew his cloak around, and
ehaddered as be puued.
Iters was darkness in the heavens and dark-
nfs in the street,
And all other sounds wete swallowed in the
mullER of the aleet.
On the loaky roof it pattered with a motion
sirango and dread.
And a noiso that might have issued from the
dwellings of the dead.
In a low and gloomy garret, a wasted figure
roi, ennnrsed, unleaded In the deepening
twilight pray ;
Her eves were ileming brightly, bat the
nohow, ghastly stare
Told of coming dissolution, wrought by sick
&ess and despair.
The straw was scant and meagre, and no fire
rare out heat.
And save the bare, uneven floor there wss no
other seat ;
And a rsgced child was kneeling by his moth
er, hkf awake.
And sobbinz at her misery as though his
heart would break.
Day broke, and rsea came thronging to gaze
upon the sijiht
Of a woman who had serlsbed of starvation
In the niffht;
And there were twelve whoscanned the corpse
with cold a careless eye,

For though a child of poverty, my heart beat
thick and Cast,
And It seeded as thoueh each moment was
doomed to be my last.
All 2ay I wandered Idly, little heeding where
Thouc ii icy feet were hare and froicn, and the
wind at random r-iayed.
Each gust that swept around me sent a shiver
to my core.
But the fire thet Mazed within me made
- me senseless to its roar.
' Another nigh! drew on apace, and from many
a window hlt;h
Came the cheenul fire lipht, glimmering on
the stragglers passing by;
And the voice of mirth and revelry was borne
. upon the air.
To hearts where prlcf had set its eeal, but
found no echo there.
Taint with walking and with hunger, (food I
had not known that day.)

cares away ;
But a hand wad I lid upon me, and a rough
voloe bade me rise,
And that night X found a shelter that a va

Is it that my clothes are ragged, or my speech

That they hunt me like a beast of prey, and

But when I seek employment I am viewed

And the purse-proud sons of fortune mark

And all backs are turned upon me, and the

Lithography. Mr. Prar.c: ia rapidly increasing his
buelnp"9 .nd improving his beautiful
art. He has begun his contemplated
lated 'Gallery of American Painters,'
a which he proposes to produce at
least one characteristic picture by
c&ch of our eminent artists. He has
already published every landscape by
Britcher, several protips of chickens
asd tha like by Tait, several fruit
pieces by Lily 5l. Spencer, and Miss
V. Cranberry, of New York, a couple
of ' genre pictures by Nile, of Boston,
a series of Rugbies ''jretns" in oil colors
besides a great variety of illuminated
texts and cards by Miss Jennie Lee,
of Jersey, and cartoons and litho

"A New England Winter Landscape"
by the late Mr. Morveiller of Maiden ;
a Ccrure piece, "The Barefooted Boy,"
by Estman Johnson; "Eater Morn

James Hart, tho landscape painter ;
two brilliant pictures of children in
tho woods, "Tne May Queen" and
"The Little Rouse," by Mrs. S. O.
Brown; "The Shipwreck of Steer

by Girud; "The White Mountains in
October," by Mr. George L. Brown ;
"The Boy of New York," by the same
artist; "The Falls of the Yo Semite,"
by Bierstadt ; the fruit pieces by S. W.
Fuller; "Cherries and Basket," by
Mrs. Granberry ; and besides these he
has a number of other compositions on
the easels of distinguished New York

avorito subjects. We are not atlibcrty
to name the paintings by foreign ar

"Elesslnns on thee little man,

With thy red lip, redder sVU

It represents a comely rustic lad,
clad in coarse homespun dress, with
his trousers turned up, his hands in
his pockets and the brightest of
"knowing" yet innocent smiles on his
face and. in his eye. His face is half
shaded by his broad-brimed hat; his
feet are firmly planted on a grey rock ;
he looks so hopeful, so self-reliant, so
entirely at his ease, that he seems the
perfect incarnation of Young America.
The accessories of this picture are a
distant landscape with a tree in the
middle and foreground. They are
well handled, but they serve only to
support the figure, which is one ouhe
best pieces that Mr. Johnson has ever

Among the fruit pieces in press,
juding from the original, we prefer
the ."Cherries" ana tne "fcirawDer

certainly admirably rendered, with a
luscious fidelity to nature. Mr. Ful
ler's pieces are highly finished and
harmonious in color, but it strikes us
that the subjects are less likely to be
The "Friends," bv Giraud we for
got to name in our list, is the picture
of a little girl, who is petting a New
foundland dog. Qiraud has an axcel-
lent faculty for the conception and ex
ecution of this class of subjects, and
this is one of his happiest eilbrts. It
will charm the children everywhere.
In an entirely different style, but of
the same character, are the companion
pictures by I. G. Brown, of New York.
This young artist excels in genre pic
tures ; he renders children with a rare
ability, especially when there is a sin
gle figure at rest, but in an attitudeex
prossive of mental action. These sub
jectsthe "May Jueen" and the
"Little Rogue" are just suited to his
peculiar genius. The "May Queen"
is a little girl in the woods, brilliantly
attired, self-adorned with wild flowers,
bathed in sunlight, her eyes beaming
with dehght at tne thought of surpri
sing her friends by her new and gay
decorations. The "Little Rogue" is
the picture of a boy, four or five years
old, who is trying to hide himselffn.m
somebody coming which somebody
he is evidently intending to startle.
He is stooping under a sumac bush,
which he gently bend over him. This
gives the artist an opportunity for a
brilliant piece of coloring. It is au
tumn, and the declining sun shoots its
rays through the misty atmosphere,
brightening the gay hues of the sumac
leaves and warming up the surroun
dings of the figure, which are rather
cold and low in tone. The two pic
tures contrast finally ; the clear, bright
summer glow of spring in the "Mav
Queen" being harmoniously off e
against the dreamy, misty autumnal
vapors irt the "Little Rogue." Mr.
Brown regards these pictures as his
"Easter Morning," by Mrs. Hart,
is a massive marble cross, hung round
about with fuchsias, pansies, yellow
rosea and other exquisitely tinted
flowers. It is a combination entirely
novel, peculiar, and lovely. We have
seldom seen, an effect so original pro
duced by a combination of such simple
and familiar elements. There is an
affluence of quiet beauty in the wreath
that is essentially harmonious with
Easter and its sacred memories. It is
altogether charming. If there is a
single flaw in it we have failed to de
tect it. As far as the chromo has
gone it bids fair to rival the original ;
but we reserve our judgment Uxn it
until it is completed, we know only
that if it is at all comparable to the
exquisite painting, it will soon be one
of the most common ornaments of our
boudoirs, vestries, Sunday schools and
The last painting on our list was
handed in as we were taking notes of
th new publications. It is a small
reproduction of "The Crown of New
England" a painting which, both in
England and America has secured for
Mr. George L. Brown some of the
highest encomiums from artists and
art critics, which American produc
tions have ever obtained.' Glowing,
poetically truthful, full of brilliancy
and light and beauty, it represents the
White Mountains, when they are seen
to the best advantage when, as the
portrait painters say, they are in their
"highest moments" transfigured un
der the early morning of a late Octo
ber day. The original on a large scale
is on exhibition at the Art Gallery of
Childs & Co., where it has been visited
and admired by thousands of our
wealthiest and best educated citizens.
If this beautiful creotton, this lyric on
canvas, can be reproduced in facsimile,
it will mark an epoch in the art; for
the vapors and mists that encircle the
mountain sides, the subtile gradations
of light and shade, and the marvelous
blendings of colors and tint9 render it
exceedingly diflicult either to imitate
It is gratifying to know that the
popular demand for pictures is almost
in the exact ratio of their artistic ex
cellence. Every touch of nature,
whether in canvass or chromo, is in
stantly recognized and applauded.
The best things sell best ; no reputa
tion avails against the fact as -it is.
"Ruggle's gems" have not paid ex
penses; whereas Tait's groups go off
with amazing rapidity. Of Britcner's
pictures, on the other hand, "The
White Mountains" and "Esopus
Creek" and "Sawyer's Pond" (a little
gem) and one or two others have a
steady and rapid sale, while some oth
ers do not move off at all. The people
have a truer taste than they generally
have been credited with in the critical
doomsday book. It is a faith in this
instinctive taste that has borne on Mr.
Frank to the rare good fortune that has
rewarded his efforts. Berwick.
