TIIK HISTORY OP A FELON.
T JTILTOX M. BTAXSBC BY.
tt was cold and dreary Winter; thick the
iiiut lay on the ground.
And Uo wind ItwhiKled shrilly, with a Bad
and mournful sound;
Through many n capping cranny came the
liowllnn of the Ma.it,
And the stratrgler drew hi cloak around, and
shuddered as be parsed.
JTwre tm darkness In the heavens and daik-
ximn In the street, . . .,
A.nd all otber pounds were swallowed J.n the
rattllDg of the ulcet.
Oa the leaky roof It nattered with a motion
strange and dread.
And a noise that might have lasuea from the
dwellings of the dead.
In a low and gloomy garret, a wasted figure
Unfei onnursed, antended in the deepening
twilight Kray; . v . .
Iler eves were gleaming brightly, but the
hollow, ghastly Hare
Told of coming dissolution, wrought by sick
ness and despair.
The straw was scant and meagre, and no fire
r- 4tavo out heat,
Ad save the bare, uneven floor there was no
And a rapeed child was kneeling by his moth-
And sobbing at her misery as though his
heart would break.
Day broke, and men came thronging to gaze
upon the Blent
Of a woman who had jerithed of starvation
in the nljrht;
And there were twelve whoscanned the corpse
- with cold a can-less eye,
" To discover, thlnpt permitting, how the crea
ture came to die !
I could not leftr to hear their Jests what
mattered It to me
Where they bore ihe senseless body, so the
soul ltwlf was free!
No friend was left to gui lo my sUps to Join
- me in my play.
Bo I turned my back upon them all, and sob
bing, tied away!
' I turned my back upon them, and sobbing,
I could not longer llngerthere, where all were
IJvthe and pny.
For though a child of poverty, my heart beat
thick and fast,
A it It seemed as though each moment was
. doomed to be tuy last.
AH day I wandered Idly, Uttlo heeding where
Thocgh my toot were bare and frozen, and the
wind at random played.
Each gust that swept around me sent a shiver
to my core.
But the fire that blazed within r."e made
' me. senseless to Its roar,.
Another night drew ouapace,.and from many
a window high
. Came the cheerful fire light, glimmering on
the straexlers p.i.lnn by;
And the voice of mirth and revelry was borne
uwn the air,
To hearts where grief had set Its seal, but
found ao cho there.
Faint with walking nd with hunger, (food I
had not known that dy.)
I stole within a frluJ.'.r lreh, to sleep my
cares away; -
Dut a hand was laid ppon vat, and at tough
voice bade me rise, . .
And that night I found a shelter t.sat a va
grant might despise, a
It were idle to detail how, from day to day,
Hpurned by Christian men, and doomed to
wear a harsh existence throusrh.
How, by natural gradations, in the course of
I l4u-ned .t lat to lead the life that's led by
men of crime.
First, trammeled as a vagrant in a prison's
Where men of blood and men of peace In
Ktrange'ommur. ion dwell.
Then fi treat, by bhecr starvation to trample on
What other course had I, when Death was
knocking at my door ?
I was horn with human feelings I was horn
with human soul,
.1 a?-.- fuahionod like my fellows, and we seek
a common gonl ;
Then why, Instead of friendly words and ad-
irKinit Ions kind,
IK they rW ine Into courses I would fain
hove left bciii nd ?
Is 11 that my clothes are ragged, or my sieoch
too rudely free,
That they hunt me like a beast of prey, and
will not let me 1k?
(Jod, t hat made me. be my witness J but to end
tlil fi-arful strife
I would work my flngero to the bone to lead
an honest life !
Iiut when I seek employment I am viewed
with scorn and fear.
And the purse-prou i sons of fortune mark

And all backs are turned upon me, and the

Bat 'tis past, I thank my Maker ; my blood Is
My breath Is failing fast, and cold and dim
my eyeballs grow.
The grey wails f my prison cell no longer
meet my sight.
And round about me gather shades that mock
the gloom of night.
My limbs have lost all feeling, and across my

Progress or American Cronio
Lithography Mr. Prang is rapidly increasing hi3
bnsinrss and improving his beautiful
art. lie has begun his contemplated
plated 'Gallery of American Painters,'
'in which he proposes to produce at
least one characteristic picture by
each of our eminent artists, lie has
already published every landscape by
Britcher, several groups of chickens
and the like by Tait, several fruit
pieces by Lily M. Spencer, and Miss
V. Cranberry, of New York., a couple
of genre pictures by Nile, of Boston,
a series of Buggies "gems" in oifeolors,
besides a great variety of illuminated
texts and cards by Mis Jennie Lte,
of Jersey, and cartoons, and litho
graphs by Mr. Homer, and others.
lie has now in active preparation
"A New England Winter Landscape"
by the late Mr. Morveiller of Maiden ;
a figure piece, "The Bars-footed Hoy,"
by Kstman Johnson: "Easter Morn
ing' by Mn. Theresa Hart, wife of
James Hart, the landscape painter ;
two brilliant picture of children in
the woods, "The May Queen" and
'The Little Rouge,", by Mrs. & G.
Brown; "The Shipwreck of Steer
forth," by Moran; "The Friends,"
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 lilerstadt ; the frui pieces by S. W.
Fuller; "Cherries and Basket," by
Mrs. G rati berry ; and besides these he
has a numberof other compositions on
the easels of distinguished New York
painters. Tait is hard at work on his
favorite subjects. We are not at liberty
to name the paintings by foreign ar
tists that are to be chromoed as rapid
ly as possible, because, in the absence
of an international copyright law, fine
art publishers are liable to the game
annoyances which are now experi
enced by the publishers of foreign
, The "Winter Landscape," by Mor
veiller, is a picture as assentially New
Englandish if we may coin the word
as pumpkin pies or Thanksgiving.
Morveiller made a speciality of winter
scenes, and was admitted to be the
best painter of enow in America, This
is one of the best of his small pieces. It
represents an old farm house by the
road-side, with its inevitable L's and
out houses ; grandma in the yard en
gaged in feeding poultry; a group of
fckaters oa a frozen stream hard by,
with spectators looking at the sport;
In the distance, the village, which is
hidden by the trees on its outskirts.
A. grand old elm, under whose wide
threading branches the farm-house is
built, is rendered with wonderful fi
delity and spirit ; and the apple-tree,
on the other side of the read, seems to
have been photographed from every
family homestead in Massachusetts
away from the great iron thorough
fare. The picture is a pleasant one ;
for it has a warm, cheerful glow such
as every one delights in, on "fine
mornings" in winter when the snow
lies deep and the eleigh bells are ring
in? merrily on every road.
-The "Falls of the Yo Semite" is a
characterist ic bit of California scenery
in liierbtadt's well-known ttyk. It
represents a bright sunset on a lonely
lake, whose solitude is disturbed only
by a pair of water fowl that hover over
and rest on the rocks at the shore. Ab
rupt, etecp and rugged cliffs over a
part of which tumbles headlong, a
graceful waterfall from the Southern
boundry of the lake; and a fring of
gigantic branchless lir-trecs skirt the
Northern shore. It is a careful study
after nature and every touch is Bierd
stadtish. ' . '
The "Barfooted Boy" is a true ar
tist's rendering of Whittier's familiar
"Blesslnns on thee Utile man.
Barefoot lxy with cheeks of tan ;
With turned-up pnntnloons
And thy merrv whistled tunes;
With thy red lip, redder rtill
Kissed by strawlerrles In the hifl ;
With the fchunfchlne on thy face ' '
Through thy torn brim's Jaunty grace;
From my heart I gave thee Joy
I was once a bai ei ot boy !
Prince thou art the grown up man
Only is republican.
Iet the million. dollared ride;
Barefoot trudging at his side,
Thou hatit more than he can buy
In the reach of ear and eye,
Outward sunshine, inward Joy.
Blessing ou thee, hart-foot boy!"
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" vet innocent smiles on his
face and in his eyes. His face is half
shaded by his broad-brimtd hat; his
feet ari firmly planted on n grey rock ;
he looks so hopeful, so self-reliant, so
entirely at his case, 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 of the
best pieces that Mr. Johnson has ever
The "Fringed Gentian" after New
man, is one of those fearfully and
wonderfully elaborate and truthful
representations of vegetable life in
which the pre-Raphaelite school of
arts of New York and elsewhere,
seem to delight. It is in M'ater colors.
It looks as if it had been drawn with
the aid of a microscope the most Lil
liputian details are so exactly repro
duced. It Is one of the most difficult
subjects to chromo, and we shall take
an interest in examining the result.
Among the fruit pieces in press,
juding from the original, we prefer
the "Cherries" ana tue "Strawber
ries," of Miss Gran berry, which are
eertainly 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 be
The "Friends," by Giraud we for
got to name in our list, is tho picture
of a little girl, who is petting a New
foundland dog. Giraud has an axcel
lent faculty for tho conception and ex
.";ution of this class of subjects, and
this b one 13 haPPiest efforts. It
will c vrm t9 ehildren everywhere.
In an e ",tirel3r different style, but of
the same chu 7afar the companion
pictures by J. (J. Dw" f ew ork.
This young artist v lrf
tun; he renders chile HYJ
ability, especially when u H'SJiS'
gle figure at rest, but in an a,.. lf, J"
pressive of mental action. The.
jeets the "May Queen" and .
"Little ltoguc" 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 delight at the thought of surpri
sing her friends by her new and gaj'
decorations. The "Little Itogue" is
the picture of a boy, four or five years
old, who is trying to hide himself from
somebody coming which somebody
he is evidently intending to startle.
He is stooping under a sumac bush,
which he gently bends overhim. This
gives the artist an opportunity for a
brilliant piece of cojoring. 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 VMay
Queen" being harmoniously off e
against the dreamy,, misty autumnal
vapors in 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, pansics, yellow
roses and other exquisitely tinted
flowers. It is a combination entirely
novel, peculiar and lovely. We have
seldom seen an effect so original pn
dueed 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 ia
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 upon 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
Tho last painting on our list was
handed in as we were taking notes of
the 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 adm'.red by thousands of our
wealthiest and best educated citizens.
If this beautiful creation, 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 tints render it
exceedingly difficult either to imitate
It is gratifying to know that the
popular demand for pictures is almost
in the exact rati of their artistic ex
cellence. Every touch of nature,
whether in canvass or chromo, is in
stantly recognized and applauded.
The best thingsell 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 Britcher'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. 1 1 is a faith in this
instinctive taste that has borne on Mr.
Prank to the rare good fortune that has
rewarded hu efforts. - -Berwick.
