OREGON CITY, OREGON, SATUKDAY, JUNE 26, 1869.
The era. of the French Revolution
There is now on exhibition in
1 arts an interest.ino- poll pet inn of
historical i,ortm-t 'iinct,.otin,r thn
era of the Ilovnlnt mn nn,l tL.f Em
pire. The projectors liave taken
much trouble to gather the eighty
pictures which it contains ; but an
rngnsn paper remarks that since
they have succeeded so far, it is
difficult to understand why they
did not go further, and enlarge
the exhibition by obtaining the
loan of many other such portraits,

the prominent figures of the Revo- j the adef of the mountain must

whose only claim to distinction mesills retranche dems la citadelle
was that she was the wife of the
" bravest of the brave."
The final cause of the catas
trophe, the chief sufferer from its
violence, Louis XVI., only appears
in a group sketched in crayons ;
but two small daubs of his Queen
recall to mind the proud and beau
tiful features of the unfortunate
Marie Antoinette. Louis XVIII,
is represented as a boy m gay and
gaudy colored fancy dress, which
arrests the eve on entering the
room. It is a costume de ballet
for one of the frivolous theatrical
entertainments at Versailles, where
the king and court amused them
selves ' fttes while the storm
was rumbling in the distance. It
is not too much to say of this pic
ture that the face of the future
monarch is as silly as his dress.
A very pretty little boy in blue

the poor victim's beauty, and is
simply that of a vain, uninterest
ing woman. It is easy to imagine
such ladies as these supporting
their queen in calling for more
money from the easy, good-natured
Calonne, who was to restore order
in the department of finance. In
this picture, by Duplessis Bertraux,
he seems incapable of refusimr
anything. " If what your Majesty
is going to ask ine to do is possi
ble," said the Comptroller-General.
" I will answer for it that it is al
ready done; if it is impossible, that
it shall be done. Such a Minister
was not well fitted to arrest the
downward course of the monarchy
it belonged to an aristocrat by
blood and birth to accelerate tnat
movement, and to strike away the
props to th crumbling edifice.
MIKATIEAU AND ItOKESPIEKKE.
Everybody- has heard how coarse
and ugly was the Compte de
Mirabeau; but the fire of genius
irradiated his face, and this .made
him so popular a subject among
artists that he is as well known by
the brush as by- the pen. The pic
ture here is said to be a faithful
representation of his features, and,
if so, they were not so frightful as
they have often been described to
be ; but his eyes are large beyond
proportion, and envelope one in
their gaze. His dress looks neg
lected, contrasting badly with the
extreme care and neatness observ
able among the chiefs of the sans
culottes, Murat excepted. Robes
pierre especially appears as a dandy
of the day his hair arranged with
taste, and his voluminous cravat
folded round his neck. His coun
tenance is pale and sharp, his lips
are pale and bloodless, his eyes
small and piercing, ine expres
sion of his features is singularly
devoid of intellectual power, with
out any suggestion of cruelty or
harshness. Looking at him, one
can understand the inordinate van
ity which urged him forward
through rivers of blood to the
chief place in the State, and finally
led him to the scaffold ; but one
cannot discover the power of will
or the intellectual dexterity- which
must have supported him in his
career. Xot far from him is St.
Just, perhaps the handsomest face
in the room, but hard, cold, devoid
of feeling, and manifesting all the
characteristics of a man who ex
ceeded his conferres in calm, delib
erate cruelty-. Couthon, the third
in the infamous triumvirate, is a
quiet looking old gentleman ; al
though he was but '38 when the ax
tookoff the head of one of the
worst men of the Revolution,
There are two portraits of Murat
the first is that of an amiable
man, painted while he was yet un
known to fame except as an eager
disciple of Kousseau ; the second

With Danton fell Camille De smou-
lins, one of the early spirits of the
R evolution, whose ruin was caused
by his strenuous opposition to the
extreme measures ot the terrorists
lie appears here by the brush of
his friend Boze, with long hair, a
quiet smile upon his lips, but with
out any signs of the energy-- or tal
ent which distinguished him.
There have been many portraits
of Bailly the philosopher, who ac
cepted the perilous post of Mayor
of Paris after the fall of the Bas
tile, and in all he is represented as
a quiet, firm, decided man. Souvee
and an unknown artist are the au
thors of the two pictures here ex
hibited. There is much merit in
the former, a painter but little
known to fame, except from his
Death of Coligny, in the Louvre.
A good portrait of Mme. Roland
shows us a pretty, pleasing woman,
coquettishly dressed, with bright,
cheerful eyes, and a lively expres
sion of countenance altogether.
Whether the painter, whose name
is not given, has succeeded in his
attempt to portray this extraordin
ary woman, it is impossible to say-
but, according to her own account,
Mme. Roland had more soul than
countenance, and her expression
was so subtle that few artists
would have ventured even to
guess the meaning of her looks.
Tallien is a good-looking, mel
ancholy man, but one s interest is
absorbed at this point m Mme.
Tallien, Xot re Dame de Thermi
dor, who roused her future hus
band to exert himself for the over
throw of the terrorists. She was
the queen of societyr under the Directory-,
and must have been ex
tremely- beautiful, although there
is a sardonic expression about her
mouth. Dressed en amazone with
a hat and white neckcloth, she is
one of the prettiest figures in the
exnioition, and lustines the devo
tion she extorted from the Mar
quis de Fontenay, Tallien, and the
Prince de Chalmy.
In the hottest fury- of the Revo
lution women were also to be found
in the foremost ranks, and of these
none surpassed in loveliness Ther
vigne de Mericourt. Sometimes
seated on a cannon, sometimes
borne aloft byr the people, always
picturesquely dressed in the favor
ite colors of the moment, Iher-
vigne, a true goddess of beauty-,
became lor the time the Goddess
of Liberty. She had been a friend
of Mirabeau's and of many other
members of the Convention, and
shone at the Revolutionary fetes,
tumults and meetings. She is
painted with a profusion of hair
falling round a beautiful but silly
face, and she is occupied in read
ing a book. Her hands are small,
and were remarked by- Dr. Esqui
rol ; who described her when she
died in a lunatic asylum, at the
age of 58, as still beautiful and
with perfect hands and feet.
While Thervigne figured as the
Goddess of Liberty, Mdlle. Mail
lard, an actress from the opera,
was selected to impersonate the
Goddess of Reason. She is said to
have been pretty, but the picture
is probably a fancy sketch, or, if
it resembles the original at all,
there is probably more accuracy j
in the masquerade dress than m
THE QUEEN OF THE MARKET.
French historians Insist on the
beautyr of all the women who were
renowned in the age ot the Kevo-
lution, from the Queen of France
to the Queen of the Market the
virago who, at the head of an ex
cited mob, upbraided the Roy-al
iamny m tneir apartments at v er-
sailles, and who dispersed the Life
Guards of the King; though she
may possibly in more peaceful mo-
ments, have been the irood, quiet,
smiling odd-lady we find represent-
Ary Sheffer's brush has popular-
lzed the features of Charlotte Cor-
day, whose great crime and signal
punishment raised her to the digni-
ty ot martyr among the royalists,
The portrait exhibited here is the
authority for all the later produc-
tions, and was first copied ly Shef-
fer himself. She has a pale but
determined look; her cap-strings
are tri-color, and her attitnde is that
of a woman of action. Ciaveah

which is so slight in the sketch of
of that great literary lioness, that
it can hardly be criticised. This
makes it difficult for the visitor to
look upon it as a correct r?pre-
scntation of the worthy daughter
of Xcckar, who was said to be al-
ways y-oung, but never childish.
French writers are often severs up
on her, possible because she was a
Swiss, or because she landed Wel

who if it be permitted to tell the
truth, reminds one strongly of Sir
Richard May-ne, both in physiog
nomy and expression.
In Talleyrand; when y-oung, one
may trace a resemblance to the
veteran diplomatist, though it can
scarcely- be said that he bears in
his countenance any sign of that
great talent or love of freedom of
opinion which characterize him.

"he had so few prejudices." "I

X. J., is positive that if you mix
about a gill of gas-tar with a pail

a brush to all exposed surfaces,
these pests of the roost will either
die quickly-, or go away very fast."
The receipe is certainly worth try-
A Pennsylvania girl thinks the
advertisement of agricultural soci-
eties are the best commentaries on
the management of their fairs.
"Look at the premiums," she says;
"For the fastest trotting horse,
850; for the next fastest, 825; for
the best team of work-horses, $5
for the best loaf of bread, 50 cents."
A Frenchman brought two

asked the meaning of it, replied;

A shoemaker in J ersey bought a
half-acre lot. He was fond of
fruit, and read the papers. The
soil was wet clay, and he selected
frnit suitable to the climate. He
built a house, and put his land in a
condition to produce fruit. He
had no manure but the droppings
of his cattle. In his leisure, ho
brought from the woods bark, rot
ton wood, moss, and leaf mould
which he mixed with the soil three
feet deep. This was done by de
grees, and as fast is the ground
was prepared, he planted fruit. He
became so interested and success
ful that he retired from the cob

Repelling Flies from Horses.
-It is anact of humanity to come to
the aid of a horse, powerful as he is
against his nimble assailant, the fly.
Here is a receipt which is saidiTto
be an excellent defence against it.
At all events a trial of it w-ill not
do any harm should it prove una
vailing as a defence to the horse :
" Take two or three small handsful
of walnut leaves, upon which pour
two or three quarts of cold water ;
let it infuse one night, and pour the
whole next morning into a kittle
and let it boil for a quarter of an
hour; when cold it will be fit for
