Engravings.--In the department of engravings, your committee finds that Mr. Baker has no competitors. They therefore award to him the three first premiums for the best engraving on wood, copper, and stone, respectively. Among the specimens exhibited by him on these different branches of art, we find none showing a high stage of advancement; but, on the contrary, a practice of dull routine, in which no end but the money the work will bring is borne in mind. The best engravings on wood, by Mr. Baker, consist of illustrations of Harbison's Work on the Bee, now in course of publication. The drawing is generally faithful to nature, and the lining in the engraving clear and distinct. [P. 216; entry includes information on the state of the art of engraving in California.]
