In the Harding collection are exhibited three remarkably fine pictures, by Meeker of this city. The center one is "The Lotos Eaters," based on Tennyson's famous poem, and recently finished. To the right is a Louisiana swamp scene, and perhaps the best produced by this artist; and to the left is a picture a trifle smaller in size, and depicting, we believe, a scene on the Florida river, introducing, however, some of the same features and characteristics of Meeker's swamp pictures.
