THE NAKED TRUTH. BY WILLIAM CULLEN BRYANT. A little volume of Fables in verse, and in the Spanish language, by Jose Rosas, has met with such favor in Mexico, that the city authorities have adopted it as a reading-book for schools. Tho following Is a translation of one of the fables. Beautiful truth once in the days of yore. Put on the brave array Which then the goddesses of Hellas wore, And issued to the day Robed in such sort, with graces so divine, That men, adoring, built to her a shrine. The gods, indignant at the sight, Rose in defence of their invaded right. “Horror and infamy,” they cried, And profanation!” and they came anil went, Pacing the ambrosial courts from side to side, Till a wild tumult tilled the firmament. Jove, to appease their fury left the skies, And quickly stood before The shrine of Truth, determined to chastise The sacrilege: he toro From her the regal mantle which sho wore, And stripped the robe away, And flung to Falsehood’s hand Mantle and rolvo to serve for her array, And gave to Truth this terrible command: “Be thou forever naked from this day." And therefore, reader, let not Truth be blamed, If evermore since then, She tildes in comers, humbled and ashamed, And rarely seen of men. NEW PUBLICATIONS. All civilized human beings consider the physical, mental and moral education of their children as of supreme importance. They arc willing to devote any money they can earn to this object. But they are generally deplorably deficient aa rcsjiccU any investigation into methods of education, and have little notion of the child’s mind and the child’s needs. The baby Is idolized; the boy or girl is lovod; but when it conus to the question of education, the boy or girl is simply “sent to school.” Tile parents, however vigorous may be their faculties, and however large may be their experience of life, rarely think of their duty to save their children from the torment implied in injudicious methods of education. The schoolmaster or schoolmistress, fashionable at the day, is sufficient for them. A little of the practical jierceptlon which has enabled a man to make a fortune, would, if exercised in the sphere of education, show him that he often consigns his children to imposters and pedants, whose incapacity would be manifested at once, if It was brought to the tests which he applies in business transactions. There is not a merchant who would not, in five minutes, be hopelessly ruined, if he was as inexact and credulous in his notions of trade as ho is In his notions of education. His instinct and sagacity seem to desert him the moment he comes face to face with the pedagogue. Ile knows that ho is working for his children; but at the same time he delivers up his children to the control of a set of people who are often immensely below himself In Intelligence, in practical knowledge, and in clear perception of the youthful heart and mind. We are therefore glad to announce a series of publications, by K. Steiger of New York, in which a sensible education of human beings is recoin mende l. Die particular volume before us is called “The Child, its Nature and Relations; an Elucidation of FrmbeTs Principles of Education.” It inculcates, of course, what is called the “Kindergarten" system. Die fundamental principle underlying tfl] the sentimentality of tile volume, is simply this, that, in the education of children, the knowledge of things should precede the acquisition of thoughts. The usual method is to make the child learn abstractions first, and then to leave him to connect them with concrete facts as far as he is able to do it. Children by a happy instinct of their nature, rebel against the method, and their intelligence is often stigmatized as naughtiness. Lord Brougham said when ho was seventy, that Jig had learned more during the first four years of his life, than he ever learned since. He, like other bright children practised a Kindergarten system of his own. Why should not the natuinl method of education be allowed to prevail ? Why should knowledge, which received in a natural way, fills the child with trails port, be so often addressed to it in such a manner as to excite disgust? Why should the names aud definitions of th lugs be taught before things themselves are known and understood? The present exjiosition of Frcebel’s ideas respecting the nature, needs and education of “The child,” is the work of the Baroness Marenholtz-Bulow, one of his most ardent disciples. The translation 1$ by Matilda H. Kricgc, of this city, an accomplished, practical teacher of the system. We should suppose that such a book would interest all fathers and mothers. A few extracts may give some idea of the scope of tho book. The most difficult thing in the education of children is the cultivation of the active powers in connection with the receptive, so that work shall be early associated with the feeling of enjoyment. Idleness is the great curse of mankind, and men generally work with the hope of obtaining eventually the means to be idle. This is the great mistake of human life, for joy is inseparably connected with activity. Recreation is only gt od so far as it is a variation from ordinary work. “There is,” says Emerson, “an infatuating sweetness in the air of the mountains which leads the idler on to hts sure destruction.” Mere busy enjoy merit is the most wearisome of all things. Indeed Sir George Cornwall Lewis, a most Indefatigable workman, once laughingly said, "Life would be tolerable were it not for its pleasures.” In this remark he indicated the primitive fact of our nature, that real pleasure can only spring from the vigorous exercise of all our faculties of body and mind. Pleasure, as ordinarily understood, is identical with ennui. We quote the following paragraphs to show how Frosbel would encounter the*problem of laziness in its s iiirce: “How very little scope and ald are given to youthful seth i’y I Yet if It is not fostered, it is deadened; idleness becomes a habit which the children at last come to like, while they dread every exertion. It would seem that nothing is thought of but to make the child receive first with eyes and ears, thou with the mind, learning and learning but never doing! Froebel teaches, on the contrary, that (lie child should not see, hear or loam anything which it canuot, by reproducing, make its individual property; and, as we have seen, he furnishes the means for accomplishing this, in early drawing—the earliest iii sand, in stick laying, easier than drawing, and In the modelling In clay, thus preparing the child for artistic productions. “In his book, ‘The Education of Mankind,’ Froe-bel says, ‘The faculty of drawing is as natural to the child as the faculty of speech, for word and sigu are as closely related as soul and body.’ When in all the departments of the child’s knowing, the application of It, the doing, is intimately connected, and every peculiarity finds Its means of expression; when the works of little children make them conscious of their own creative power, and disclose their talents and inclinations, then the children of a future day will not, as is now the case, be crammed with Mead knowledge, and presume to judge Af everything in a critical, precocious manner, without ever producing anything, unable to act with force and power. Iii what are called Hie higher classes of society, Hie young people now-a-dnys know a great deal too much or, at least, think they know very much. They cannot condescend to do anything, and prefer to produce nothing. In the lower classes again, young people are mere drudges or machines, and thought is unconnected with their work. The true balance between receptivity and productivity has boon lost and must be be re-established. This may bo done by Frcebel’s method; by it early childhood is instructed through that which it produces and experiences; doing is from tile start made tile source and tho companion of knowing. In a moral point of view too, the child is first made to act according to moral law, before it is taught morality in the form of abstraction or precept. True morality is only evinced In action.” One of the most striking of Froebcl’s Moas is ids method of teaching science. He begins with the concrete, and the passage from facts to laws is made by “a process of smoothness and delight.” Here is tho statement: “No subject of knowledge is so near, so essential to man, as a knowledge of nature aud her laws. But geometry, the basis of all natural science, should not be taught at the outset as an abstract science; it is not likely thus to awaken interest in many youthful minds. But if it starts from the original, fundamental forms of nature, and never loses its connection with them; lf its single tenets and laws are deduced in organic connection clear to the pupil’s consciousness, then no thoughtful person, no one who is interested in tho contemplation of nature, will pass this fundamental science by with indifference. How great would be the benefit to industry and the life of tile nation, from such a popular and universal knowledge of geometry and the natural sciences resting upon it, if we could succeed in teaching the coming generation, from earliest childhood, to think over again tho grand creation of the universe, to reproduce it, as It were, in their thoughts! Froebel conceived the im-jKirtnnce of sucii an effort, aud therefore he made the ettmal archetypes cf nature the playthings cf ehild-hccd, and the laws, mutual reflations and combinations, which nature employs in her secret workshop, the child’s laws dud rules if play.” Everyltody who has Ixsen at school must preserve a vivid remembrance of tho horrors of the spelling-book. Horace Maim, tho most earnest, eloquent, and sagacious of all American citizens who have devoted themselves to the cause of education, justifies children in their abhorrence of it on philosophical grounds. The translator of tho present volume quotes his statement as sound “Kindergarten” doctrine, and we follow her example: “In Scotland tho spelling book is called the ‘spell Ixiok,’ and we ought to adopt that appellation hero, for, as it is often used witli us, it does cost a spell over the faculties of children, which generally they do not break for years, and oftentimes, we believe, never. If any two tilings on earth should be put together and kept together, one would suppose thAt It should be the idea of a thing ami the name of a tiling. The spelling-book, however, is a most artful and elaborate contrivance, by which words are serrated from their meanings, so that tho words can be transferred into the mind of the pupil without permitting any glimmer of their meaning to accompany them. A spelling-book is a collection of things without the things signified—of words without sense—a dictionary without definitions. It is a place where words are shut up and impounded, so that their signification cannot get at them. Yet formerly it was the almost universal practice—and we fear it is now nearly so—to keep children two or three years In the spelling-book, whore the mind’s eye is averted from the objects, qualities and relations of things, and fastened upon a few marks, of themselves wholly un intel eating.” THE FINE ARTS. THE DRAMA. NOTES. The Arundel Society will publish, early in the autumn, a selection of transcripts from the well-known collection belonging to the Duke of Iievoushire, comprising twenty of the more important of the series known as “The Chatsworth Raphaels,” which ranks second only to the Oxford series. The reproductions will be in autotype, and printed from negatives belonging to the science aud art department. Tho same society will also publish a work on the architecture of the ruined buildings near Delhi, by Lieut. H. II. Cole, R. E. Every one recollects the Music des Souveralns in the Louvre, a collection of antiquities, works of art and articles of personal interest, all connected more or lees closely with the sovereigns of France—from the ornaments which were found in the tomb of Childeric at Fontenay to that chair of wiiich the latest interest is that Napoleon tho First used it at Boulogne. These objects had been gathered from museums, libraries and other establishments. By a recent decree of the President of the French Republic, they are to he returned to the places from which they were taken twenty years ago. The public gallery at Brussels acquired, at the sale of the collection of the late Mr. Middleton, two portraits of Philippe Ie Beau aud Jeanne la Folic, which have been attributed to Memlinc. These works are said to have been brought from the church at Zierck, in Zealand. Die same museum has been, at least up parently, fortunate in securing another work attributed to Memlinc, a tryptych, formerly belonging to M. Wolsey-Moreau of Paris. The central panel represents Christ crucified, lamented by the Virgin and St. John, and worship|>ed by a knight and lady—the donor and his wife, and a page. Behind the knight is his shield of arms, which has beeu thought to indicate that the picture once belonged to an Italian family, if not to a member of the House of Sforza. In the background is a landscape, with a fortified city, the walls of which are reflected in still water. The left wing shows the Virgin adoring the Infant Christ, witli St. Francis ot Assissi kneeling and presenting a gentleman who holds a falcon on his fist, and is clad in a brocaded tunic, under a mantle of scarlet and ermine. On the right wing are SS. John the Baptist, Barbara,and Catherine. The wings respectively bear, on their exteriors, figures of SS. Jerome and tieorge, in grisaille. Ancient and Modern Wealth. If now-adays one is In possession of a million of dollars he is almost worshipped. It is now supposed that the Sprague family of Rhode Island is one of tim richest in tho land. They have built a monument worth $100,000. Much is spoken of tne fortunes of the Asters, Vanderbilt, Stewart and the Rothschilds, but all their wealth lacks insignificance, compared w ith fortunes of olden times. Ptoloinaus Philadel-plius, in Egypt, bad a fortune of $350,OOO,OMO. Cleopatra drank a glass of wine in which was dissolved a pearl worth $40,000. Stewart, in New York, built a bouse that cost $.500,000. What a pittance! Cicero paid $1,600,000 for a country seat. Mcssella paid $2,000,000 for a homestead. Seneca, a philosopher like H. Greeley, was worth $12,000,000. Tiberiotts left property worth $12,000,000. Now -a days every one is astonished lf a man gets into bankruptcy with $100,000. Julius Cantar owned $14,000 before he had any office. Marcus Antonlus owed $ I JOO,OOO on his election, March 16th, and paid it off March 7th. Not enough, he afterward clean d $720,000,000. Now if an entertainment coat, $1000, it makes old people's hair stand upright! What is this to old Roman times? Als ip, the poet, paid $400,000 for a single i>arty. Caligula jut id tho same price for a supper. Diey drank old wines worth twenty dollars an ounce, aud roasted pigs over fires made of nuts and raisins. The bedsteads of Huliug-tibnlus were of pure silver and gold. Eighty thousand dollars was necessary to keep up the dignity of a Roman Senator. Cicero and Born pejus once paid a visit to Lucullus. Nobody was at home. They helped themselves, and it cost Lucullus $4otM). Tne capacity of Rome’s theatres wa* fabulous. The wooden theatre of Sharurus had MO,OOO seats, the Coliseum 87,000 seats besides 22,000 standing places. Rome had then between three and four mfiUous of inhabitants. The Circus Maximus had room for 386.000 spectators. There were at that time nine hundred public bathing places. Jn the fifth century after Rome was plundered by the Germans aud Vandals, /bedlams, a historian, reports from Rome 384 streets, 80 golden statues, 66,697 palaces, 13,OW fountains. 2785 bronze statues of Emtterors mid officers, 22 colossal borne statues, 41 theatres. 2306 perfume si ores, aud 2291 prisons. Thebans hail paid for income duty in one year six million of dollars. Alexandria had a library of 700,000 volumes, at a time when manuscripts were rare arui costly. Athens had the Theatre of Bacchus, capable of holding thirty thousand people. NOTES. There are but three theatres open in this city at the present time: The Boston, the Globe and the Museum. At the first-named house the Vokes family are delighting good-sized audiences every night; at the Globe, Humpty Dumpty makes his bow every evening to crowds that cannot help laughing from tile beginning of the performance to its close; while at the Museum, Robert Craig presents bls inimitable mimicry of the popular actors of tho day. It will thus be seen that, although the weather 1b very warm, the entertainments provided at our theatres are such as to amuse without greatly taxing the mental energies. An English paper tells the following: There will, apparently, be always some people found who will be “taken in” by that consummate and admirable actor, tile youth who drops sham rings and paste pins before your nose, and then, In the most innocent manner in the world, pretends that he has had tho luckiest of finds. But we did not think any policeman, however young, could lie stirred up to energy by the appearance in the circus ring of one of the troupe feigning intoxication, dressed a* a farmer, and 7*r-sistlng in riding one of tile horses round. But this time-honored Joke once more “struck Ile,” as the Yankees say. While Messrs. Crotteste and Nella’* Circus was performing at Leigh the other day an “active and energetic officer” bounded into the ring on the apparance of the circus fanner, and refused to go away until he had arrested tho tipsy interloper. Not only did the young policemen show his energy, for lie was followed by a far older ami more ex;>eri-enced hand. The peals of laughter which ran round the ring at the expense of the judice when the tipsy farmer bounded on to a horse and commenced changing his costume may easily be imagined. Die meritorious activity ot the police of Leigh deserves, however, sjiccial recognition. The theory is that policemen are never found when they are wanted; to be discovered when they are not required marks an excess of zeal not unworthy a place in police annals. A recent number of the London Era says: “And, while on the subject of the wilful propagation of error, we may possibly call attention to tho scurrilous abuse of the English stage, its artists, actors actresses and critics, published in tho May number of Hie St. I’aul's Magazine, and signed by Mr. Walter Hutcheson. We not'd scarcely add that the magazine is no longer edited by Mr. Anthony Trollope. We have nothing to do with the opinions of the young man. We deal merely with his facts; aud when he boldly and unblushingly tells the public that tho ‘actors of tho present day are unable to parso an ordinary siieech in Sliakesjieare; that they do not know French and German; that they have the manners of strolling players and cockney clerks; that actresses cannot look like women of gentle breeding, and, with rare exceptions, are not virtuous; that the gentlemen engaged to review new plays for the various newsj>aj>ers are Ignorant, 111 educated, and are not generally striking in apparance, save for a oei-tain tendency to wear false shirt-fronts and to smell of mysterious liquors;’ we tell Mr. H utcheson that his impertinence is only excused by his ignorance. Ho has libelled wantonly and extravagantly a profession of eminence and distinction; he has put on record facts which be must know are utterly untrue; and he lias dashed off what lie may call a spirited article, but one which from henceforth will deny him that very title of 1 gentleman ’ which he is so anxious to secure for the stage. It is the fashion of the day to say that such poor and illiterate stuff as that poured out In the columns of the St. Paul’* Magazine, slanderous and wicked as it is, should be treated with the contempt it deserves. Newfoundlands ami retrievers do the same for puppy-dogs; but when tho puppy takes to biting as well as barking measures somewhat, stronger arc required. When a gentleman so far forgets himself as to deny virtue to honest and hardworking women, and call un honorable and equally hard-worked Bot of men drunken—without a shadow of Justification for either statement—be should be ordered to hold his tongue, with an alternative which possibly might not be pleasant even to such a manly jiersonage as Mr. Wulter Hutcheson.” THE DRAMA IN PARIS. The Grand Opera will not close this summer, but is to remain open all the year rouud. It has been rumored that the baritone Fun re is about to proceed to America, where several brilliant engagements have been offered bim. In spite of the sultry summer weather, the theatres are still presenting fresh novelties, although the audiences at present are necessarily exceedingly limited. Madame Bistort recently gave a concert at tho Grand Hotel, appearing in Paris for tim first time these ten years. She was rapturously received, and gave a selection from the tragedy of Marie Stuart, reciting alone the celebrated scene of the Interview between Queen Elizabeth and Marie Stuart. At the Folies Dramatiques part of the Palais Royal company is now giving a scries of successful repre-icrilotions, the main attraction being the lively comedy, Le Mcurtrier de Theodore, an adaptation of which wits produced at the Haymarket Theatre by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Mathews, under the title of “ Who Killed Cock Robin? ” Die able manager of the Theatre Francois, M. Emile Perrin, in a letter to Got, which has been made public, puts forth his reason for not visiting London this bcuw ii, and pleads that the difficulty of maintaining a double company and repertoire, both in France aud in England, im an insurmountable obstacle to the trip. Nevertheless, lie concludes by saying that he will take measures to carry out the project next year. The Folios Bergere Music Hall has produced a grand mythological ballet, entitled La BatalUon ties Amours, and success has crow nod the efforts of the hardworking commonwealth which manages this hitherto unlucky establishment. After a duet, suug by two artistes representing Venus and Mars, in which they discuss whether love or war works the most good on earth, fifty ladies in elegant costumes go through some cleverly-arranged dances and military evolutions, while the lime light illuminates the scene. Mile. Mariquita, formerly principal danseuse at the Porte Saint Martin, leads the little army of coryphees. The great comedian, Frederick Lemaitre, is about to undertake a starring tour in the departments, when he will appear in the principal dramas of his repertoire: Don Casar de Basan, Trento Ans; on, la Vie d’uu Joueur, la Dame de St. Tropes, etc. This veteran actor has entered Into negotiations with several well-known authors to publish his memoir, which would evidently he full of Interesting anecdotes. It appears that these reminiscences of an eventful career behind the footlights are crammed with tedious and uninteresting details, but as the writer will scarcely allow any changes to be made in the original manuscript, there la complete disaccord between him and the compilers, and the work in consequence makes but little progress. The Opera Comique has been giving lately a series of one-act operettas. They have had Le Passant, by i’aladilhe, the anther of the fatuous “MandoHnata;” then Djamileh, by George Bizet; and on Dtursday evening last La Princess© Jaune (The Yellow Princess) was produced with tolerable success. The libretto is from tile lien of the poet Louis Gullet and the music is by Camille de Saint Saents. The plot, although very slight, is charming in its simplicity, and apjiears to have exactly hit the taste of the select audience of this theatre. The action takes place In Holland, and the audience is introduced to the library cf Koruelis, a young student who, devoted to his books, has income enamored of a Jajmuese picture representing a beautiful princess, while his cousin Lena secretly adure* him. He fancies that he has discovered the secret of a beverage jwsseasing the power of transporting him to the marvellous far-off land where bis idol reigns. He drinks,aud ins sudden hallucination believes himself in Japan, Lena appearing to him in tho rich costume of his visionary princess. He declares his passion to tho young girl, who joyfully received his avowal, although sho cannot understand the sudden change in his demeanor towards ber. The scene is uow a gorgeous Japanese landscajie, Lena being supposed to ignore tile change in her appearance, the spectator alone being made to share the delusion of Die student. The whole of the story rests upon this retitle effect representing the dream of Koruelis, and after a love dud we ouoe more conic back to the library, where the image of Lena ha* become so Identified with that of the priueesa that Ute young man asks her hand in marriage. The com;toner belongs to the new school of musicians of which Richard Wagner is the chief, but the partition, which would be dull and monotonous lf essayed at the piano, is full of melody, and a full orchestra can alone do Justice to its clever effects. Mile. I mousse is very fascinating as Lena, and she sings with great judgment in a light and agreeable style. M. Lherie, a rising young tenor of great promise, enacts the role of Kor-nelis, playing an original (tart for the first time in Paris, and he meets with deserved applause. The afterpiece is the old operetta, “Bon Soir Volsin,” by Ferdinand Poise, and this revival is a perfectly successful one, the score having lost none of its pristine freshness. The reigning topic of late in Paris has been the sudden death of M. de Chilly, the director of the Odeon, and the circumstances connected witli his demise have been of such a peculiar character as to excite a terrible amount of painful interest in the Parisian theatrical world. On the lith ult. a banquet was given by Victor Hugo, at the Restaurant Brabant, to celebrate the 100th performance of “ Buy Bias ” at the Odeon. Despite the bad state of bis health, M. de Chilly did not refuse the invitation, aud it will be seen that this imprudent act was fatal, for scarcely ha/1 the banquet began when he dropped from his chair in a tit Of apoplexy, and, never after regaining consciousness, died in the early morning. The two friends who assisted him to his residence came back in time for the dessert, and the great jioet, when be returned thanks iii a labored improvised speech, did not make the slightest allusion to the disaster which bad tiefallen the valiant lessee, who had produced his play after it had been forbidden for more than twenty years. The gayety of the evening was not in the least marred by the contretemps, but, on the contrary, it seemed to wax faster and more furious, as a cruel joke played upon one of the lady members of the coint>any tends to show. Mile. Sarah Bernhardt is the tragedienne who is entrusted with the part of the queen in Ray Blas, and ber fellow actors informed her, in a mysterious manner, that she would find hidden beneath her napkin a magnificent piece of jewelry, presented by the author In recognition of her valuable services. All tile evening Mile. Bernhardt was iii a state of perturbation difficult to imagine, and a bitter disappointment awaited lier when the roar of laughter which ran round the festive board proclaimed how egregiously site had been duped. Tile deceased gentleman was sixty-four years old, and had distinguished himself during u long and honorable theatrical career by his prodigious activity and spirit of enterprise. In 1831 he abandoned a clerkship and turned comedian, playing successively at the Odeon aul Porto Saint Martin. He was at one time proprietor of the Ambigu Comique, and it was owing to his powerful initiative that this theatre became the borneol romantic drama. He created several important parts, and I mention the following as boing most familiar to the English playgoer; Gringoire, in “Notre Dame de Paris;" Montorgueil, in “Ix-s Bohendens de Paris, The Scamps of Loudon;" Mordaunt, In “Le* Trois Mousquetaries;” Bird, in ‘‘La Case de i’Oncle Tom;” and Rodin, in “Le Julf Errant.” His funeral was attended by all the artistic and literary celebrities (rf the day, but the dead man was forgotten, as the democratic friends of Victor Hugo had the bad taste to get up a political manifestation, and to applaud and cheer the author of “Napoleon, the Little,” who, bareheaded in a carriage, bowed right and left to tho blue-bloused crowd in true regal manner. It U generally believed that the directorship of the Oieon will l>e entrusted to M. Duquesne!, the partner of M. de Chilly, but there are many aspirants to this Important (Kist, as the profits of the theatre during tile past season have reached the sum of 74,000 francs.
