New Ycrk, Jan. 2. According to the Washington correspondent of the lleiald, the statue of Pere Slarquette, in the statuary hall in the capitol, about which there was almost a telig ious war a few years ago, turns out not to be the statue of Pere Slarquette at all. The statue was presented to the nation by the state of Wisconsin. Objections were raised to its installa tion in the capitol by persons of other than Catholic denomination, and for many months the authorities hesitated as to what they should do. They fin ally gave Pere Slarquette a place ith , other prominent men.. A discovery has now been made of an oil painting of Slarquette in Slon treal, which indicates that the statue is as far from being an accurate repro sentatiou of the famous priest as day is from night. The painting in Slou treal, it is said, is undoubtedly authen tic, and was so covered with dest that no outline of the portrait conld ba had uutil it had undergone a careful cleaning. It is believed that this painting is the only likeness of Slar quette in existence, and the face in oil is not the face of the Slarquette in marble at tbe capitol. A CONGRESS OF IDEAS.
