The Prince of Wales.

--A foreign correspondent, in alluding to the recent marriage of the Prince of Wales, says:

‘ The marriage of the Prince of Wales was to him a blessed relief from the calls of artists of various sorts — crayon, oil color, water-color, sculptors, photographers. He was doing harder work than any hired model for weeks before the wedding. He was sitting for his full length picture to Mr. Walton, R. A., and for his bust to Mr. Marshall Wood, the sculptor of the Daphne, so much admired in the exhibition. Mr. Mayall, the photographer, took him in all attitudes, and when he went to Belgium, Mr. Ghemar seized his every expression. The bust mentioned is colossal, intended for a figure twelve feet high, and is to be duplicated for various council chambers throughout the realm, as well as for the McGill College at Montreal. Mr. Walton's portrait of Albert Edward represents him in a blue coat and gray trousers, with hat in hand, near Windsor Castle; in it the resemblance to George III, is very clear.
