Robert E. Lee Portrait
" IS ALL DEM YANKEES DAT'S
One of the most amusing as well
as most striking features of
SHERMAN'S march through Georgia was the utter
amazement of the people, black and white, of the hitherto unvisited regions
through which the army passed, at the immense numbers of the "Yankees." Our
Artist sends us a portrait from life of one of the " colored population," who
watched, hour after hour, the endless column of Blue-Coats cheerily filing by
the plantation, from which, probably, she was never ten miles in her life, and
finally broke out: "Is all dem Yankees dat's passing?" Another exclaimed, to a
daughter of her master, "Law! Miss HATTIE, jess look dar in de road: dem Yankees
like so many blackbirds!"

New York, December, 1864. The
Piano Fortes, Grand, Square, and Upright, manufactured by Messrs. Steinway &
Sons, have established for themselves so world-wide a reputation that it is
hardly possible for us to add anything to their just fame. Having thoroughly
tested and tried these instruments personally for years, both iii public and
private, it becomes our pleasant duty to express our candid opinion regarding
their unquestioned superiority over any other piano known to us.
Among the chief points of their
uniform excellence are : Greatest possible depth, richness, and volume of tone,
combined with a rare brilliancy, clearness, and perfect evenness throughout the
entire scale, and above all a surprising duration of sound, the pure and
sympathetic quality of which never changes under the most delicate or powerful
touch. This peculiarity is found exclusively in the Steinway Piano, and together
with the matchless precision, elasticity, and promptness of action always
characterizing these instruments, as well as their unequaled durability under
the severest trials, is truly surprising, and claims at once the admiration of
every artist. We, therefore, consider the "Steinway" Pianos in all respects by
far the best instruments made in this country or Europe, use them solely and
exclusively ourselves, in public or private, and recommend them invariably to
our friends and the public.
We have at different times
expressed our opinion regarding the pianos of various makers, but freely and
unhesitatingly pronounce Messrs. Steinway & Sons Pianos, both grand and square,
incomparably superior to them all. S. B. MILLS, F. L. RITTER, ALF'D H.

VIRGINIA AND OHIO.
THE VIRGINIA AND OHIO PETROLEUM
MINING COMPANY was incorporated for mining and operating Petroleum Oil Lands,
and for this purpose have secured some SIXTY-SEVEN tracts of valuable Oil
Territory, comprising in all over SEVEN THOUSAND ACRES, situated on the various
creeks and runs in Ohio and Virginia, flowing into the Ohio liver within a
radius of about thirty miles from Marietta, Ohio, and situated in the heart of
the Oil Region, in the midst of a great number of producing wells.
The Petroleum from this section
being about 40° Beaume gravity, and very free from sediment, is much sought
after by refiners, and readily commands nearly two cents per gallon more than
that from Oil Creek.
The Company holds Fifty Thousand
Shares of its capital stock, to be disposed of, as required, to raise sufficient
means to develop its lands. The remainder of these shares, if not wanted for
this purpose, au be divided among its stockholders pro rata.
For the purpose of raising
sufficient means to further develop their oil territory, they now offer a
limited number of shares of their WORKING CAPITAL Stock, full paid, at the low
price of FIVE DOLLARS each (par value $10).
Applications for shares to be
addressed to either of the officers of the Company, at their office, 51 BROAD
ST., NEW YORK, where a prospectus and further information can be obtained.
