CAMEOS.--Mr. M.C. Mayhew of St. Louis exhibited four Cameos, specimens of his own handicraft. They were superior to many of the importations from foreign parts, and being the production of a resident artist, should be encouraged by our citizens. One, cut as early as 1847, is a spirited representation of a Bacchante. Another, executed in 1848, represents also a Mythological subject. The remaining two were cut expressly for the Exhibition of this year (1858). They were much admired, and the Grand Silver Medal was awarded to them.
