A fine work of Art.

An admirable bust of the late lamented President Tyler, has been executed by Mr. F. Voloko, an officer in one of the Departments, and a young gentleman whose genius and training in the art of sculpture need no other proof than this remarkable work. The likeness is wonderful. It is the man himself. Several of our distinguished public men, old friends and acquaintances of Mr. Tyler, who saw it yesterday soon after it was placed in the State Library, were emphatic in their commendations.

We understand that a bout of President Davis has been made by the same artist, with no other opportunity of obtaining a likeness than seeing the President on one occasion in church, and that it is pronounced by the President's friends, not only a fine work of art, but the most likeness of the President ever made.
