COMPOSITION IN WATER COLORS. 1st Premium, Diploma and $20. 2d premium, Medal. A spirited "Composition" by Mr. J.S. Brown took the second premium. It represents a venerable matron, seated under the shade of "An umbrageous oak in pomp outspread," engaged in the double occupation of knitting and listening to the lesson of two urchins; one of said urchins is looking askant from his book, his attention being more fixed upon the gambols of a kitten playing at his feet. The picture was styled THE LESSON, and was an admirable production. [P. 100.]
