Landscape in water-colors. Over the gray mantle-piece on the north wall is a collection of small paintings in water-colors, several of which are of great merit. A level, green landscape of fields, divided by green hedges, by James Hamilton, is a piece of exquisite work, with a forcible coloring of sky and perspective, admirable for water-colors. It is so seldom, so very seldom, one finds good water-color paintings that these specimens are quite refreshing. [P. 81.]
