local intelligence. A Vhit to ClaKK Mill*' Stcdio?A day or two alnee we indulged a long cherished deaire to p?T a visit to the pleasant rural retreat, (some four miles out on the Bladensburg road.) where Mills is pursuing bis second great national work, the statue of Washington. Mills has here pur chased some 12U acres of land picturesquely loca ted. with a clear stream of water running through it. invaluable for his artistic purposes, and which be bas made of further use a* an artificial lake, serving as an ice and fish pond. On a commanding eminence stands a cluster of buildings, composing tbe artist's establishment, consisting of dwelling bouses, studio, foundry, blacksmith and carpenter shop, stables. Ac.; but to reach this 44 Palace Beautiful" it is necesaary to pas* the kennels of some ferocious bull-dogs, of great site, whom, however, we found securely rhaiofd. elm- this article might have remained unwritten. In the stable yard to the right an odd looking customer was seen ^ rubbing bis horns against th? gate) in the shape of an American elk, tbe de scendant of one which escaped from Mills two or three years ago. and was snot while swimming I be Potomac Abut tbe same time a bison, pro cured also by Mills as a model, got away one night, and was found dead tbe next morning, having perished like tbe unfortunate elk by the bands of some thoughtless marksman. Tbe studio, which was erected in placs of one blown down by ^?e wind, towers above the coun try like a stately castle, being a large octagonal building some eighty f?et through by forty feet In bright The explanation given by tbe aitist uhy he bas had this building constructed of such sixe, ia Interesting. He says that in the execution of the Jackson statue, be wa.* so craiujied for room in the small shed-like structure, which our readeis will re member as having stood south of the Treasury building, that be d:d not onceduring its progress have an opportunity to view it at the proper focal distance, and that when the statue was unveiled in Lafayette square, it was as new to bim as to anv spectator. The malhtude received it with acclamations, but bis artisti- eye detected defect* at once, which be wonld have avoided with bis model sufficiently elA-ated to judg?* of the eff?*et at the height it was to take on its open-air pedestal. These defects he quietly remedied in the duplicate statue or dered by tbe city of New Orleans, and he has now taken the precaution to secure himself ample room and verge. By throwing open the lar?ie doors of the octagonal sides of the studio the model is displayed in any required light, or at any angle of depression or elevation fcnteTing the studio, we pass through a room occupied with ingenious mechanical appliances invented by Mills to facilitate his art opeiations, among which isa simple but admirably working contrivance for copying busts on a reduced or en larged scale. Passing into the great central room, tbe eye is arrested by the colossal plaster model of the hoise for the Washington statue, and which, though roughly outlined as yet, is marked by all that intense vitality and spirit which the Everest critic of this artist must concede to his productions .Mills has, we think, with good judgment se lected for illustration that striking historical inci dent of the battle of Princeton?tl.e point of time when,on the precipitous retreat of Mercer's troops. Washington putting spurs to hi.* horse, dashed j.ast the nesjtating militia full upon the advanc ing foe. his commanding figure ami white horse, making him a conspicuous object for the enemy's marksmen. Washington, in this terrible emergen cy. maintains the sublime tranquility of the Chris tian hero, wbo feels that be is in tbe bands of an overruling Providence, whose instrument he is; but tbe hoisehx* no such su*taining power, and re roils terror struck at tbe peril upon which hoi* thrust. Tue figure of Washington is not yet modeled ; and to the achievement of this we look forward uith no little interest, for to Mills fulls the sin ?;ular good fortune of having it in hi* power to Itrnisb what alone will give his work ;u? inesti mable valu**. tbe onlf alsoluttly rorrret likeness nnd lust cf Washington lh? world has yet seen! Mills bas now in his possession the lloudon bead, taken from the face of Washington, and the only one ever taken. This was obtained bv Hoiidon it* a model for his celebrated Richmond statue of Washington (a copy of which is now in tbe rotunda oft he cupitof ) But now comes out the most singular fact of all. Wbo bas not felt a sense of dissatisfaction at the narrow, re treating forehead, and perked up chin of the Houdon statue; all criticism and questioning being debarred by the a.-*ertion that the bead was an > xact copy from life. Such is not the fact. Houdon. following the wretched taste of his time, inu*t need* alter b;s divine model; " A combination and form indeed, W here every god did seem to set his seal To give the world assurance of a man.'' and gave his Wa*hington the features and port of the effeminate sensual royalty of that day. viz : the narrow receding forehead, wide heavy jowls a.r?d thrown up chin and no*e. Providentially, the original head from the cast, though overlooked. Las l>een preserved intact, and is now in the band* of an artist tremblingly alive to Its priceless value a* the only true repre sentation of Washington in existence. It is a grand bead, showing, in its balanced proj?ortion* that perfuct equilibrium and har mony of qualities exhibited oy the Father of his Country, but which no other representation of bim. pictorial or statuesque, has yet adequately *baduwed fxitb. Mills iuu*t not alter a line of bis model. *o much as a hair's breadth No ideal head, however noble, can equal this taken from Wa*hington's own features. Mills spoke with much yratification of an in terview held by h!m with President Buchanan a few days *mce, In regard to a site for tbe VVash in;-t^n statue wuen completed, it being left to the President of tbe United States, by the act of Con tress, to designate such site. On bis attention t>eing called to tbe matter by Mr Mills, the Pres ident express??d a purpose to obtain the advice of aitists as to a proper location, evincing by bis manner of saving it. that be was fully aware how much injustice may be done to a work of art through being placed in an unfavorable position In the studio we noticed the spirited outline of the model of a tiger, execut'-d by a son of Mills, s jnie sixteen yeai* of age, who exhibits no small tlejji>-e of ta>nt in bis father's walk Kmerging f.oni the studio we noticed, in a store-room to the left, some hundreds of barrels of planter of Paris, enormous quantie.* of which are i-onsumed in modeling these colossal statues. Next in interest to the studio is the large foun dry. built of brick, and which replaces one that was burnt in tbe course of Mills' "rhaiitrr of ac ? ldetits." shortly after his studio was blown d> wn High overhead impend two ponderous ? ianes. designed to lift the flasks containing the moulds?fiom thirty to forty tons in weight?at the tim" of casting Here are two cno> inou* vats, one designed for sulphuric acid iu which tb< casting, .ifle^ being lilted and filed, is lowered for a couple of davs for a bath. Tha second is tbe nitric acid bnth. In which the casting is immersed but a moment, and then water is dashed upon It, else the acid, which changes the metal at once to ubulliaut golden hue. would eat deep into its surface. Here is Mills' wonderful furnace, to the inven tion of which be wis driven by imperative ne '?ensity. which, without chimney, bellows, or u.aft, and with pine wood for fiel. atfo ds heat *utfi< ient for fusing the immense mass of metal required in hi* castings. One of tbe most g-apbic narratives we ever lis tened to, is tbe mist's description of the difflcul ties through which be struggled. >u executing the castings u? his Jackson statue; how. after having permission to use the Navy Yard furnaces, he found at tbe last moment that to make the requi ? ite excavation near the tire, would in tbe opinion ??f the Navv Yard authorities endanger the safety of tue tall chimney tine and be was forced to look iu some other quarter; how the first moulders in the country refused to undertake the work except -?i hi* n?k', bow. when at 11* wit* end. be recol le. t.-d having N?en in bis boyhood a piece of ox ? bam taken fom a coal pit. which with pieces of brick wa* completely filled bv the inten*e heat of tLe p,t; bow l*e cried " Eureka !" and started to (onatni't hi* furnace upon the principle of the i oai pit; bow ail the scientific savaris of the day i diculed the idea of a furnace without draft, aud i.vw h.* neatest friends and patron* apalled by tue dictum of the savans.entreated him to aban don bis vtsinuary project, how fl'in in hi* beiief tuat ??some thing*can Is* done as well as others, be persevered and triumphed, and all the inert d idott* savans came and examined the turnace in ? de and outside, and admitted that it was au ?icb:eve?nent *4 not dreamed of in their pbilo?.o pbv.*' A* we left tbe foundry a b arse of exquisite pro portions came bounding tuwaids Its master it w.i* one of bis models, a Mexican horse, and the jerf^ciion of grace and spirit.

They find upon its head and face the marks of a blow or blows in flicted. apparently, by some instrument unknown to the jury, as well as the hand of the person or persons who inflicted the blow. Near the place was found some clothes belonging, apparently, to a young girl of sixteen years of age; two chintz t ocks and under clothing: but there were no marks upon them which would indicate that they were fn any way connected with the infant which had been found. If Ma. George W. Bknnet Is a bona fid* per sonage. and will favor us with his address, we will attend to his case. We have received a com munication. purporting to come from such an in dividual, in which he represents that he was one of the Baltimore party hired by persons in this city to assist in '?regulating" the election, that he got shot in the shoulder, and didn't get his nav and that he is now disposed to give his employ The communication evidently comes from some on* accustomed to writing for the press?an ac complishment not generally attributed to our Plug Lgly visitor*?and has altogether the look of an article concocted in some lawyer's sanc tum \Se think we detect, under this pilo of meal, a cat, of gigantic dimensions.
