PORCELAIN PAINTING.--Dr. Montrose Pallen of St. Louis exhibited a very beautiful specimen, but being by a foreign artist it could not obtain a premium. It was a small cabinet copy of the celebrated Magdalen of Battoni in the Dresden Gallery. When Dr. Pallen was in Dresden, he had this miniature copy taken by Johannes Kemlein, a celebrated copiest on ivory, of that city. It is an exquisite gem of art; but as the public are familiar with the painting, and from the innumerable engravings which have been taken of it, a description of it is unnecessary. [P. 101.]
