Of Sculpture, there were but few specimens presented. One, however, is entitled to notice. It was a Bas Relief, styled "Peace," by our townsman, PAUL AKERS, his own composition, and one of several illustrations of Hood's Bridge of Sighs. It sustained the high reputation of this artist in the profession which he has chosen. Only the head is represented; the hair and neck are peculiarly fine. If he continues true to his promise, his works will add to his own reputation and confer honor on his native State. We are pleased to learn that this talented artist has orders for several of his works in marble, and will soon return to Europe with cheering prospects. SILVER MEDAL. [P. 28.]
