For the best and largest collection of oil paintings by one exhibitor, C. Bent Carr., of St. Louis, received the second premium, $50. [P. 99.] In the same collection were two pictures, one of "Morning" and the other of "Evening," both worthy of inspection, and exhibiting the same correctness of coloring and completeness of execution. Also, two small pictures of scenes on the Meramee--very pleasant little paintings. It is needless to tell a citizen of St. Louis that all of the above named paintings, though entered by Mr. Carr, were from the studio of Meeker, certainly one of the best landscape painters in the city, and, indeed, we might say in the country.
