Important Artistic Correspondence.
To Sculpkr, "Washington, D. C.
Dear Sir .-—Much has been said about Mr.
Mills' new statue of the Horse and Washington. A newspaper man tells me that it is
too heavy and clumsy, while a military gentleman, of the Seventh Regiment, positively
asserts that the mane and tail, waved by the
wind, relieve the work of all ponderosity,
and give It an Airy Grace
What is your opinion ?

The Tribune, one day last week, contained
' -A correspondent of The Winsted Herald says a male
child was born iu Sandisfield, Mass., healthy and wel-
formed, with a well-defined "pair of soft, silky whiskers, streatching from ear to ear." The child is now
five weeks old, bright and lively, with a growing beard.
Mr. Isaac Eader is the boy's father.
As Mrs.Eader's baby is of course a "perfect duck," we confess that we cannot see
anything remarkable in the story, for who
does not know that the Eider-Duck is noted
for its down ?

The Franking system is getting more and
more corrupt every day. We have heard it
whispered that a certain Member of Congress recently proposed some political measures to Frank Pierce through the Post Of-

Some people are grumbling because our
pet Seventh Regiment did not have a military reception at Washington. Que voulez
vous, messieurs? Do you mean to say their
reception was a Civil one ?

FO& THE BENEFIT OF THE STUDENTS OF YALE COLLEGE.
As Marcb approaches, you must begin your labors for the season
l>y Harrowing up the feelipgs of your respectable friends, and
sowing a large crop of Wild Oats.
No attention need yet be paid to your early P's (Piety and Pru
dence,) but you will do well to destroy as many Weeds as possible,
by burning them.
In order to practiec Fast Agriculture successfully, it is imperative
that you should keep a horse. Ponies (of brandy) are also quite
necessary. Should otier livestock be wanted, Go the Whole Hog,
but be careful to Save your Bacon.
As fruit trees are profitable, it would be a good thing to procure
several. We especially recommend Crabs, both fast and soft, but
a neat little Plum is likewise desirable.
After attending to all these duties, you may make some provision
for the coming Fall. Unless you arrange beforehand to be in
Clover at the end of the season, you will find yourself somewhat
Seedy, and have to go moping and Mowing around.
If you wish to have a Course of Sprouts immediately, Plant some
vigorous blows promiscuously about, on the noses and eyes of fighting men. Tbey will Shoot at once. Cuttings will do as well as
blows, but in such an operation, care should be taken to avoid the
climate of the west bank of the Hudson, in the neighborhood of
Tarrytown and Peekskill.
