RANDOLPH HOC' .Oh Years ago—l know not how long—thcro was a young man away np In the woods of Michigan, who look it Into his head he ought to he an artist, and following the Lent of his genius came to Rome. The vmuU is that you may sec bis genius Is the groat bronze doors of the Capi tol at Washington, worthy to rank with those of the baptistry of the great Florence Cathcdiul. one by Ghiberti and the other by Persuno, which Michael Angelo declared wti c worthy to ho the Gales of Paradise. In the university of Michigan, at Aun Arbor, stands his Nydla, the blind girl of Pompeii, fleeing to escape the impending destruction of the city—one of the most beautiful conceptions of modern art. lie has a large number of commissions for “N)dla,” “ Isaac” and others of his well known works. Ills figure of Ruth glean ing is a beautiful figure, so winning that, if Ruth hmelf was half os beautiful, no wonder that Douz singled her out from all the other gleaners of the wheat field. Mr. Rogers is of the opinion that hence forth there will bo fewer Cupids, Pucks, Vcmises, and subjects from mythology than there lias been ; that the public taste Is sati ated; that the Bible, Instead of heathen mythology, will hencefbrth be the text-book of artists. Ills studio Is full of statues, busts and monuments for the fallen heroes of America. No truer patriot breathes than Mr. Koucrs. I am Informed that. la one of the rq/Vs here In Rome, an Englishman was traducing the character of President Lin coln, calling him a baboon. It being a pUco of public resort, Mr. Rogers felt that he had a right to be beard on that question, there* fore, rising from his scat and standing before , the fellow, doubling up his fist, he said: ' I am an American, sir; Mr. Lincoln Is Presl- i dent of the United Slates; and If yon repeat those words I will knock your teeth down 1 vour throat.” , , Mr. Rogers Is tall, stout, robust, resolute, with energy and will visible in bis countc- , nance. The Englishman* hnng his head, stammered an apology, and was careful to utter no more offensive words In the hearing of so resolute a Yankee. Not long since an English woman, with eye-glass In baud, was gazing at the statues in this studio, and. stopped to admire that entitled, “The Sentinel”—a soldier of the Union, with his musket. “Who Is that?” she asked. , 4 * That is an American soldier—a sentinel —Madame.” , „ “Is that the great General Stonewall Jackson S” she Inquired with great eager* “No, Madame; It Is the man who shot Stonewall Jackson.” was the quclt reply. MISS ZIOSUSR. Miss Ilosmcr’s studio Is exquisitely fitted up. and aside from the works of art within, is itself an attraction. There are Dowers, vines, plants and a fountain in the court, as vou approach the entrance, and pots of flow ers In cozy places within. The building Is not a mere elicd, as Is often the case with sculptors, but the walls colored In har monious tints. A magnificent fountain of her own design stands In one of the rooms, so that with the pounding of the workmen a hammers, there is the more melodious mnaic of rnnning water. The fountain was a com mission ordered bv Lady— of England. Miss llosmer has In process of execution ‘ The Sleeping Faun” and also “The Waking Fauu,” two groups, which she Intends to send to Paris for the Exposition. In the first, a naughty Puck fast binds the sleeper to a tree: In the second the frun is adminis tering punishment to the naughty imp. The i conceptions ere not of the high order of ge nius manifest in “Zcnobla” aud other pro ductions of this artist, but they are very , plcjsirg. These arc the only designs, I be hove, In her studio, except that for the soldiers’ monument at St- Louts. She has, however, quite as much as she can well at tend to In filling orders lor copies of statues , already favorites with the public. MISS LEWIS. I In the stndio once occupied by Canora, I lonnd Miss Edmonla Lewis, who I presume , >s the only colored sculptress in the world— a ladv perhaps 2S years of age, with African and Indian blood fu her veins. She received , an education at Ohcrlin, Ohio, and spent a ' short time, I believe, In New York: then went to Boston and studied art by herself, , having a room in the Studio Building, where ; she modelled a bust of Colonel Shaw. Some i of vonr readers will remember her, and will , bo glad to hear of her success since leaving ! Bonon. With the thuds obtained from the ' sale of the busts ordered by the friends of Colonel Shaw, and who were ready also to

lend her a helping band, she came to Rome a little more than a yearago. Ignorant of the Italian language, and a stranger to the place. She bad already decided what course to parsuc. She had read , Longfellow’s A Hiawatha,” and longed to repttidnee In marble the conceptions ol the poet. She modelled two groups, the wooing and the marriage ol Hiawatha, and one figure of Nakonfa. They are between the aUlna , and life-size. , , , 1 have not space for a description of these wonderful works of art; for such the? are unquestionably. 1 have beard several gen tlemen. say that there Is not anything In Rome, of modern art, surpassing them for bcanly of design or excellence of execution In bringing out the peculiarities of Indian character. lam not a ctmwtorer In art, ana 1 give the opinions of otbe*«, among whom Is a gentleman from Washington who is so well pleased with them that he will give the artist a commission for the two croups. A copy of the “ Marriage of Hiawatha has al ready pone to New York. She Is the first artist, so far as I know, who has taken sub jects from this poem of Mr. Longfellow. J What Miss Lewis may be able to accom plish In other things remains to be seen, but In the delineation of Indian anatomy, physi ognomy, feature, ccslmnc and character, i venture to say that there Is uopnewho can claim to be her equal.

Of course, the White House levees are the most attractive to the masses, though they are far from being the most enjoyable. No cards are issued, as the Chief Magistrate ofthe na tion is supposed to have no partialities among his masters—at least In the particular of so cial matters. The doors are generally opened at 8:£0 in the evening, and Immediately thereafter the throng commences to enter. Carriages arc driven through the eastern en trance of the grounds, and after depositing their *‘loads’ r nndcr the portico in front ol the mansion, drive out ol the western exit, giving way to those who come after them, 1 and taking position to be ready whtn Mild for. On cnlerlmt 1 directed to the private dining-room In the west wing of the house, which is used ut such times lor o dressing room, and the gentlemen deposit their cloaks, huts and canes in the charge of the porters, receiving a numbered cheek tn return, as from the cloak-room of a hotel. Tho ladles Join their escorts again In the main hail, and inarch Into the Red Parlor, which is the first of the scilcs ol small parlors located on the south tide of the first Uopr of the bouse. In this room hut foit people remain, opt; haw ing thiouch ilie short corridor Into the Clue Parlor, they are greeted with a request from the Marshal of the District for their names, mid arc then Introduced by him to the Presi dent. As a general thing thev learned ut this juncture to appreciate the glory of a soldier s tile, vlr..; “To he Killed, and luivo your name spelled wrong In tlio fAirr/h*.” The President shakes the proffered hand of the guests and says "how do you do?” and un less be personally knows the parties, no more conversation occurs. During this de lightful Interview with him the curious have an opportunity to stare straight In his face from d distance of two feel or less, depend ing, of course, on the size of crlnoilne and length of arms. The President stands near Hie entrance from the lied Parlor, while the ladies of his household occupy a position a JUile further buck and nearly in the centre ol the room. Those desiring the honor can give their names t« the Commissioner of Public Puddings, who stands on their left Hank, and he Introduced to them, whereupon a repetition of the circumstances attend ant wupon presentation to his Ex cellency occurs, idler which the guests p/ s on in solid column as bclore through another chort passage Into the Green Parlor, and from thence Into (ho grand old East Room, where they have opportunities to enjoy a promenade, also In solid column, marching to the music of tho famous Marine Band, which Is generally seated in on adjoining hall. This constitutes the modu* o/xmadl o! a public reception of tho President and hi* family. Ail classes of people attend these levees, and there Is generally a perfect jam, a crush ing of crinoline, and an awkward and rololul tramping of toes attendant upon them. I remember to have seen a lino ol carrlogcs nearly a quarter of a mile long waiting to get up to tho portico of the While House and another Hoc ofpcdestrlans, Intent on tho some purpose, extending from the door back to the sidewalks on Pcnusvl vanla avenue duilng Mr. Lincoln's time. So great was Ids popularity with people of all classes that U was Ini|H»*t,lblo for thoae who succeeded In getting in at the reg ular entrance to get out at it, ns the contin uous stream ot new comers kept It full from early In the'evening until lateat night. On such occaslius one of the large windows of the East Room was opened, and a temporary bridge being laid from its sill tothc sidewalk, an exit was effected with care. In the crush ut the exlrance ladles have been known to faint, and lucky was she who succeeded in getting through without being at feast partially disrobed. Then, as now. Copperheads, Radical?, bankers porters, chambermaids and fine ladie? were mixed up together in the column of visitors who passed before the President,and his hand was given to all alike, except that his white kids became dirtier and dimer as the night wore on. In the East Room prom enades, where the guests go/‘swinging round the circle,” the ladies leaning on the arms of their gallants, the only chance for social conversation Is afforded, and then the dear, darling, gentler sex have an opportn nlty to slroKC oat the amplitude of their trails, and show their 41 finery.” Then Uis that they commence their buzzing and cos siting, and inspection of what everybody else ofthelr sex has “got on.” The buzzing , Is sometimes as loud as that which character- Izea the solemnity of the Douse of | Representatives when In dignified | session “at the other end of the avenue,” except that occasionally a peal of silvery laughter or bold guffaw from the mouth of some male or female guest is heard. Here It Is that acquaintances with the digni taries of the land are properly formed by means of formal introductions, and the po litical news and social Incidents of the day are talked, the weather discussed, and the latest Hon dissected. So gayer scene can be imagined, or one more Imposing in ua grandeur of social intercourse, pan the East Room when It Is filled with the youth and beauty, and the wisdom and <Hgn*ty of our nation on such an occxrion. The gorgeous ornaments, the gigantic mirror?, the richly-elided chandeliers,, and the massive draperies, with, the rich bullion tassels pendant from the heavy brocatel cur tains, all combine to produce an effect, wllh the elegant attire of the a.»?cmbla«e, which la at once awe striking and attractive- Nowhere else on this continent or In the world can a similar scene be found, ana it is peculiarly emblematic of our re publicanism, for here is to he seen the high and low, great and Httle. and the rich and peer, gathered together under the same roof In the mansion of oar Chiet Magtetratc. Just at this lime the levees of benerai Grant and Speaker Colfax rival those of the President in popularity, and very near ly bear off tho palm In the general ejttaa lion of the fashionable public. General Grant's first public reception two weeks einee was without oxtnxvaannco ot «pr«- .lon decidedly the most tacccMriilcnterlala; mentor the kind attempted In this city for mttnv years. He had Issued cards, and though a few attended who were not Invited. | the assemblage embraced a greater number , of truly distinguished people, and more ele- | gance of dress and refinement ol manners i than It has ever been my fortune to wUncss. The reception at tbesame place night before last was a repetition of tho first, except that the number In attendance was larger.

The fulsome praise of news papers generally, regarding the manner In which public men and their ladies receive is disgusting when bestowed on General and Mrs. Giant, as they arc proverbially plain and cordial, without any effort at snobbish elegance, and arc free from cold formalities, although they have deservedly won a repu tation Tor placing their guests at case from the start.
