Portrait of the late B. West, F. K. A. is a
magnificent and masterly performance. After
his own works a great man's' best monument
tliis is the way in which a mighty genius should
go uown to posterity. It is chaste, simple, and
severe : it produces all the effect possible ; and
this not by its ostentation, but its modesty. The
coloring is rich without gaudiness : the drapcry
is natunJ, without labor : there is a depth a,
clearness, and a tranquil majesty about this en
tire picture, which the greatest portrait painters
of antiquity might be proud of. It is a faithful re
sembl ance of the late President ; and one cf the
most durable and indisputable claims of the pres
ent to be his successor. It is at once a testimo

the other. If we were inclined to hir.': any thinr
