Death of Galt the Sculptor --Alexander Galt, the well-known scripture, died at his residence, in this city, on yesterday, of small pox. The deceased was an artist of no inconsiderable intent and had built himself up a reputation for Boldness of design and decency of finish that favorably compared with that of any contemporary artist in either the Old World or the New. Mr. Galt was quite a young man, and his life has gone out just as it was launched upon a brilliant career. His more prominent works had a trans-Atlantic reputation.--Among the works in marble of which the deceased artist was the author was Payche Bazchante and a statue of Jefferson. He had executed in plaster basts of President Davis, Governor Letcher, and Hon. Barnwell Rhett, of S. C. His last work was a bas relief of General Stonewall Jackson.
