The committee would also call attention to the following as possessing great merit and recommend that premiums be awarded them. No. 38, A. Jordan, Detroit, 5 water color architectural drawings,

Diploma. No. 141, F. E. Cohen, Detroit, oil painting, “How do you like me,”

pencil drawing, Downing's Cottage Residences. They would also call attention to the picture No. 119, F. E.

Cohen, Detroit, “ Industry Rewarded." The design
and execution of this piece display talent and skill of a

very high order; they recommend the award of a Dip, and 5 00 No. 100, a collection of daguerreotypes, by W. C. North,

of Cleveland, Ohio, are clear, distinct and beautiful, and
entitled to special notice,--

..Diploma. Nos. 524 and 194, C. V. Bond, portrait of R. Hosmer, and an old lady,..

Medal. To the young lady who executed the pieces numbered 199, 178 and 177, Miss R. B. Norris, the committee would recommend the issue of a similar premium to that awarded for the best specimen of water colors. The genius and skill displayed are enhanced by the fact that the artiste is but 15 years of age, and has had but scanty opportunities of tuition.

The monochromatic landscape paintings, Nos. 70, 71 and 72, by Miss Augusta Ensworth, are also entitled to high commendation.

The department of the exhibition referred to this committee, refects great credit on the exhibitors, and honor on the State. While Michigan abounds in all the elements of wealth and prosperity, now iņ a state of rapid development, your committee regard it as a matter
