the benefit of this article as provides for his liberty on parole or in cantonment. And if any officer so breaking his parole, or any com. mon soldier so escaping from the limits assigned him, shall afterwards be found in arms, previously to his being regularly exchanged, the person so offending shall be dealt with according to the established laws of war. The officers shall be daily furnished by the party in whose power they are, with as many rations, and of the same articles, as are allowed, either in kind or by commutation, to officers of equal rank in its own army; and all others shall be daily furnished with such ration as is allowed to a common soldier in its own service; the value of all which supplies shall, at the close of the war, or at periods to be agreed upon between the respective commanders, be paid by the other party, on a mutual adjustment of accounts for the subsistence of prisoners ; and such accounts shall not be mingled with or set off against any oth ers, nor the balance due on them withheld as a compensation or reprisal for any cause whatever, real or pretended. Each party shall be allowed to keep a commissary of prisoners, appointed by itself, with every cantonment of prisoners in possession of the other ; which commissary shall see the prisoners as often as he pleases; shall be allowed to receive, exempt from all duties or taxes, and to distribute whatever comforts may be sent to them by their friends; and shall be free to transmit his reports in open letters to the party by whom he is employed.

And it is declared that neither the pretence that war dissolves all treaties, nor any other whatever, shall be considered as annulling or suspending the solemn covenant contained in this article. On the contrary, the state of war is precisely that for which it is provided, and during which its stipulations are to be as sacredly observed as the most acknowledged obligations under the law of nature or nations.

ARTICLE XXIII.

This treaty shall be ratified by the President of the United States of America, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate thereof; and by the President of the Mexican republic, with the previous appro. bation of its general Congress; and the ratification shall be exchanged in the city of Washington, or at the seat of government of Mexico, in four months from the date of the signature hereof, or sooner if prac- . ticable.

In faith whereof, we, the respective plenipotentiaries, have signed this treaty of peace, friendship, limits, and settlement; and have hereunto affixed our seals respectively. Done in quintiplicate, at the city of Gaudaloupe Hidalgo, on the second day of February, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and forty-eight.

THE FINE ARTS IN ST. LOUIS.

THESE, as well as the more common arts of civilization, come very properly within the range of political economy; for, although their products add little to the more essential necessaries of life, yet it concerns society to know what portion of its members are engaged in each and every pursuit, and what the encouragement

and reward received by those engaged in the respective departments of labor and of art. Notwithstanding they may not directly minister to our physical enjoy. menis, yet they are calculated to refine and elevate our moral nature, and to enlarge the means of human happiness; and hence they deserve, and should receive, the patronage of all who desire to improve the condition of man. And we are pleased to observe that the citizens of St. Louis evince a disposition to patronize and encourage the several branches of the fine arts in a manner creditable to their taste and intelligence.

In ARCHITECTURE, St. Louis will compare favorably with any city of its size in the Union. Many of the buildings, both public and private, are highly creditable to the artists who designed them, and would be esteemed ornaments to any city on the continent. This may be considered the most important branch of the fine arts-for, besides its value in an economical point of view, it is the precursor of the other branches; for, wherever architecture flourishes, there painting and sculpture are sure to follow.

PAINTING, also, receives liberal encouragement, and we have in our city a number of artists, whose works are esteemed as possessing considerable merit.

SCULPTURE, also, has recently made its appearance in our city, and we are pleased to learn that it is likely to receive a most liberal patronage. We visited, a few days since, the studio of Mr. ALFRED S. Waugh, and found him engaged on a bust of the Rt. Rev. Bishop Hawks, which was then nearly finished. We do not profess to have a cultivated taste in regard to works of this kind; but to say nothing of the resemblance, which is close and striking, the artist has, in our judgment, been most happy in catching the characteristic air and bearing of the original. This imparts a spirit and animation to the bust which we have but rarely observed in works of the kind. Indeed, so powerful is the effect from this cause, that the likeness seems to kindle up in every feature the more we look at it, until we feel as though in the living presence of the original.

We also observed a bust of the Rev. Dr. Potts, which struck us as bearing a strong likeness to the original, but being less acquainted with this gentleman, we are not prepared to express so decided an opinion in regard to the merits of the work. We learn, however, that his more intimate acquaintances esteem it an excellant likeness.

In nothing, however, were we more pleased than in receiving information that these busts have been presented to the reverend gentlemen by the members of their respective churches. This is a most pleasing manner which they have adopted of testifying their regard for their respective pastors; for, like every other benev. olent action, the benefits are not confined to the primary objects, and it is a gratifying reflection, that in the present case the arts have come in for their full share. How excellent the quality, and how beautiful the economy of benevolence !

MOULDING, or Casting, has also been recently introduced, and Mr. P. Crum. MEN, Jr., Figuriste, on Second street, has many highly classic models, from which
