The Hudson is ju&tly celebrated for
its fine views, and painters have de

"Iwas an hour when nature seemed
to have awakened fresh, and beautiful,
af an infant refreshed from sleep, and
smiling in consciousness of her own
loveliness, while the grand old King
of day was just bcg'nning to press his
urst kiss upon her tace.
A stranger tu tbe.sQ scones : I was
drinking in the cup of bliss. While
my eye was thus ravished wi.h beauty,

sounds ; raising ny eyes from lower

with him his master, a man w.hcvio eve

All these combined, adorned a face

o great, and instead of retreating ab
togethr from the scene, she concealed
herself behind a massive tree, from
which place she could see and admire
unperceived by h'm ; and aftei he left,
a sigh escaped her, but she felt that
she would see him again. She p'o?
ceeded homoward, and in a short time
was there to find that mother and fath

excused horself for her tardiness, and
all was right again, ;
It must be! known that Sadie Gros
venor was the daughter of poor parents.
People who had at oie time revelled in
the luxuries of life, when John Grog-
vonor was a rioh man, but reverses of
fortune came, indwhen Sadie was only
five years of age, this home of ease and
luxury in the cjty was exchanged fuv
the little cottage, where we find them
now. lier mother being a woman of
great talent, she had imparted to her
child much qf culture, and refinement.
Her father vas aa henest farmer. And
beyond the village pleasures Sadie
never had any of the real enjoyments
of life. To-day she felt more IrAAnlv
than ever befora, that
missing in her, young life but she must
quiet these thoughts, and fca fc&f own
happy self again.
A new happiness came tq Sadie that
dajr, by the evenings' post. A letter
from her uncle, Mr. Kalph Grosvenor,
who, had proven himself impenetrable
to woman's charais, and was now liv
ing alone in his magnificent residence
on Fifth Avenue, This imcle. in his
visits to his brother had formed a strong
attachment for the little girl, as he had
seen her developing into a woman of
that purity, and ecellonoe of charac
ter wh&h he so mvah admired, and hid
determined, u ere this to snaka. hex hia
heiress." Now he had written insisting
that Sadie should spend this her sev
enteenth year with him, and attend a,
fashionable school in the city, acquir

cha.rms tfhich weje requisite to a lady

1 hough the parting was a severe
trial to the little circle, still tSadie was
prepared, and in two Weeks from the
receptwoof her Uncle's, ktter, she was
on her way to the city," Happy was
the meeting between this uncle and
neice ; and while being conveyed to his
home in his sp'endid carriage, the fu
ture looked bright to Sadie.
On arriving she was shown to her
room furnished with taste and elegance.
A fire burned in the grate, whose re
flection on the rose colored furniture,
gave the room a cheerful homelike
appearance. She soon changed her
traveling dress for some soft bright
material, arranged a few of tho fallen
curls, and was ready to meet her uncle
in his Library, and was escorted by
him to dinner. They were soon en
joying themselves over the sumptuous
For one week Sadie was allowed to
enjoyjtbeoperas and other amusements,

acquaintances, and friends in the fash

Then come the cmmencement of her
school, when she told her unci she
would shut out the bright vision before
her, and that through which she had
just passed and devote herself to her
school duties, and those things which
would fit her to partjpjpate more free

3? r o-IXi storic
To Egypt no longer pertains the
glory of having been the originator of
the arts. It was with profound aston
ishment that the world learned some
years since that, longt long before the
artists ol Egypt, the men of the age of
the reindier bad cultivated design, et
gravin, and even sculpture: At first
their wcrks were greeted only with
plaudits ot admiration ; but now re
covered as we are from the first im
pression, we are forced to admit that in
those ancient days as in oar own, there
were not wanting badlartista ; and yet,
amid a numberof coarse designs, there
arenotafew which are truly worthy of
jioteTand which betray an able hand,
and an eye trained to observe nature. -Designing
undoubtedly prececlcd sculp
ture amcng the troglodytes, and their
figures in relief are much t.'wer in num
ber and le a perfect than their engraved
sketches. These latter figures gener
ally form the ornamentation of the ba
ton de commandment, or of the hafts of
doggere , but sometimes they are found
on stone slats, or on plates of ivory or
ofreindetr horn, which would appear
to have bten prepared simply to receiye
the engraving?, Nearly all the designs
represents objects in nature, though
some ot them are simply ornamental
linef, zigzags, curves etc, Three smaU
banurainep, engraved on a peice of
reindeer-horn, would appear to repre
sent a polypetal flower j bat all the
other figures represent animals. The
reindeer occurs most "frequently, the ox
and the aurochs beingtmore rare. These
various animals are readily distinguish
able in the engraved figures, their re
spective gait and motion being often
times reproduced with considerable exs
actnevs an J elegance. Sometimes they
ape isolated, be'ug npresen'ed without
any order, o?er .'the -entire turhca of
some instrument ; but, again, they are
found grouped together, engaged in
combat, etc. The engraving of the
mammoth was found in 1S64 in the cave
of La Madelaine The head of the ani
mal is given ?ith remarkable exacti
tude. The marquis de yibraje has
since discovered a bton of commanr!
ment, with a mammoth's head sculp
tured on it. These two pieces are the
only ones representing the mammoth,
which hTe conqa down to our time
from the hands of the troghxlytic ar
tists, but they suffice to show that the
animal was not yet extinct.
