Special Premiums and Honorable Mention.--Messrs. Nahl Brothers, of San Francisco. Before closing this well-deserved tribute to the genius and industry of the Messrs. Nahl Brothers, we would briefly call attention to the elaborate engraving of the "Death of Chevalier Bayard"--not for the purpose of recommending it for special award, (because we believe this work was not executed in California,) but on account of its transcendental qualities. It is evidently engraved on copper, from some admirable painting, possessed of great merit as to composition. We are not advised as to the mode in which the engraving has been executed; but it appears to us to be a compound of etching and rule-work, most skilfully managed. [P. 284.]
