OUR EXPOSITION LETTER.
Among the impressive paintings it
thfi Art Gallery "Waiting for Mon
te/uma" by Tavsemier. It derives it
interest from the pathetic tradition o
the simple Axtec people , who are hen
represented as looking forward to the
coining of him who was to be theii
Messiah , a dream rudely broken ant
dispelled by the conquering and mer
cenary Spaniard. It is somewhat re
markable that artists in all ages have
drawn their most interesting subjects
from the religious traditions of the
people , and as in the "Last Supper , '
the work before us illustrates one oi
the most affecting incidents or tradi
tions of the people who , until disturb
ed by the incursions of a "more relig
ious race , " are believed to have lived
in the devoted practice of the best
principles of all religions , observing
the golden rule , and ever repaying
the vindictive and monstrous cruel
ties of the bigoted and blood-thirsty
invaders with offices of kindness and
mercy. At least this picture impress
es the spectator with such an estimate
of the character of the Aztecs.
Far different in scene and senti
ment is Mignot's "Niagara , " the large
canvas painting of an American won
der by an American artist. Ilere
power , majesty and beauty are blend
ed ; mountains of seething waters ,
whose irresistible plunge over the lofty
ledge to the awful depth below , startle
the beholder , reassured and composed
when he sees the foaming billows
changing into gentle waves , flowing
peacefully away , crowned and encir
cled by a thousand different rainbow
hues. Louis Remy Mignot , the artist ,
although an American , spent most of
his life abroad , and died in London
fifteen years ago , leaving this immor
tal imaije of the eternal Niagara as
a rich legacy to Ins - countrymen and
the world. In the contemplation of
what is really beautiful and instruct
ive here , the regret that the whole
people are unable to see and study
them , is always uppermost in the cor
respondent's mind ; about as profita-
bje an investment as the government
cutfidTiave made would have been an
appropriation to have leased the rail
roads three months to carry every one
to the Exposition free of charge.for
after bread and butter are secured of
what value is money as compared
with knowledge and mental cultiva
tion 'i But let us stop moralizing
and go over to the states.
"By their fruits we shall know
them , " is , I believe , the way it reads
in the Bible , and it is thus that the
several states make themselves known
in this Exposition. In this way , our
most southern state , Florida , is pro
claiming to the world her matchless
character and advantages. There is
but one Florida , and the Orange is
her Queen , with a most attractive co
terie of attendants the fig , lemon ,
pine-apple , grape , fruit , lime , etc. ,
while every vegetable , berry , and vine
known to the world , flourish in her
genial soil and climate , not to men
tion sugar-cane , cotton and many
other crops. Thousands of northern
people have founded pleasant winter
residences in "The Italy of America , "
and it' is a rare thing to hear of any
one who is dissatisfied with his invest
ment. A newspaper paragraph re
cently noticed the fact that 'Rev.
Charles Beecher , of Elmira , N. Y. ,
had been down there recently , gather
ing his orange crop , while his sister ,
ilso , Mrs. Stowe , spends her winters
gathering and enjoying the fruits of
ber fine plantation in the same state ,
together with hundreds of others from
the eastern and other northern states.
The influx of people seeking homes
in Florida is very large , her cheap
lands , rare productions and mild cli
mate , having charms which few people
ple can resist , after a brief , acquaint-
ince with them. To the man of limit
ed means wishing to make a certain
investment , no states offer greater op
portunities than the peninsula. While
: he climate is such as to make living
comparatively cheap and easy , the
lature of her products is such that
; he demand constantly keeps pace
tvith the increased supply , and so long
is a first-class orange sells for five
; ents , there is no danger of a glut in
; he market ; even a really good apple ,
ifter centuries of cultivation , cannot
je bought in New Orleans to-day , for
.GSS , while the best oranges on sale
lere , also bring GO cents per dozen.
Besides , such is the constantly increas-
ng demand for winte ; residences and
jranfje 3 groves in Flonda , that so soon
is one is established in any fairly good
pcality , it can be readily disposed of
it usually double its cost. Thegrow-
ng of figs , lemons , pine-apples , ber-
ies and early vegetables , is likewise
rery profitable , as the state's exhibit
