To those who have visited the Art Galleries of England it is needless to point out the similarity in quality, tone and general feeling that this artist's works bear to those of the great Sir D. WILKIE. In this picture of the itinerants the study of character is excellently portrayed. The heads of the young girl and boy are most true to nature and full of feeling; nor are those of the old woman, or the nigger boy to the right, any less faithful. It has been often remarked, by our best judges that it is a great pity and a loss to the country that Mr. LE CLEAR does not give more of such works to the public, as there are few men who can compete with him in this school or branch of the profession.
