Three well-known names have passed away this week,—Sir Archibald Alison,

who "wrote nine big volumes to prove that Providence was Tory," and might have convinced mankind if he could only have written three; Mr. Bally, who carved "Eve at the Fountain ;" and Mr. Clarkson Stanfield, who has painted seas every artist loves, and every Londoner has applauded. He was the greatest loss- of the three, and to those who loved his works, the Stanfield worshippers, it seems as if some beauty of nature had died with him. Except to him, the ocean, perhaps, never looked so lustrous or so lonely.
