Mr. Brady has been many years engaged, at great xpi use, in collecting Portraits lor a National Hal sry, and those which are being engraved for this ork arc believed to Ire superior to any that have ver la?ir taken. In the accomplishment of this great bicc.t he has experienced the utmost courtesy and neouragement trom distinguished men. Mr. Brady's tputatioli has been too long established to need any commendation. His daguerreotypes are in the ighost sense the works ot nrl, glowing with the soul 1 the living countenance. The drawings and engravings of D'Avignon have cen pronounced by Europeans of taste to Ire fully pi.il, and in some rcspeets superior to those of the est artists of I.ondon arid Paris; and every im- i icdiatc supervision The typography will l>c cxe- i iilrd a* carefully and in as superb a style as the enravings themselves.

To the President of the *\ittiuiuil Institute Jul the I 'ruination of Science. Sir: 1 have the honor herewith to transmit copies of a correspondence which has taken place between the Minister Plenipotentiary of her Majesty the Queen of Great Britain and this Department relative to the proposed Industrial Exhibition to be held in Condon in the year 1851. From the circular of the Royal Commissioners of Great Britain, hereto annexed, it will be wserved that all objects intended to be introduced from lureign countries and entered for that Exhibition are required to have been first submitted to anil approved by a central authority or commission of the country from which they shall be brrouglit, and that no other will be recognized as a central authority except such as shall buve been so certified by the Government of the country in which it exists. That American industry and arts may lie enabled to miu>:ir in I lie tdarc sib,I ted tilthcm. it will tie llldis lie<>?ablc that a recognized central authority should he constituted; ami I am under the impression that the National Institute, having been regularly incorporated hy act of Congress, and being habitually engaged in matters pertaining to the arts and sciences, is the proper body tor taking the initiative ill constituting such a central authority. I therefore beg leave to submit to its consideration the interesting and important.subject which has been brought to the attention of this Department hy the distinguished Envoy of her Majesty's Government, and to request such action or suggestions as tnav seem necessary in order that the natural productions, the ingenuity, indu-try, and arts of the United states may be fully and suitably represented on the interesting occasion herein referred to. 1 have the honor to be, very respectfully, vours, JOHN M.

Aggreeably to the programme adopted by the Royal Commission, no articles are to be received from foreign Exhibitors except those which shall have been approved by a central authority, recognized as such by the Government of the country from which they are sent. This Institute being the only Society for the Prontion of Science and the Arts, directly incorporated by the Government, the Secretary of State has deemed it the appropriate laxly to take action or make suggestions relative to the fulfilment of the wishes of the Hoyal Commissioners, by the establishment of such a central authority as the ease seems to require.

L. ft ta w UK, he. j Extract from the Circular if the Rvyul Cutnmisrumen. " Tlte Commissioners have felt that it would he desirable, as fttr us |M>usil>!e, to prevent any persons front sending lather articles which cannot he admitted, rather than to reject the articles after their urrivul in London. They feel also that the delicute and responsible tusk of deciding on the admission or rejection of articles destined for exhibition by foreign contributors ought not to be imposed upon any English tribunal, but should he referred to one aving tlie confidence of the exhibitors tlien-st.ves, und standing entirely free front possible .uputations of national partiality. They aire aigly propose "to admit to exhibition such foreign articles otdy us may be forwarded to tliem by the Central Authority (whatever may be its nature) in each country. They w ill communicate to such Central Authority the amount of mace which can be allow <-il to the productions of the country for which it acts, and will also .state the conditions and limitations which may from time to time he decided on with respect to the admission of articles. All articles forwarded hy such Central Authority will then he admitted, provided they do not require a greater aggregate amount of space than that assigned to the productions of the country front which they come ; and, provided, also, that they do not violate the conditions and limitations of which due notice shall have heen given. It will rest with the Central Authority in each country to decide upon the merits of the several articles presented for exhibition, and to take care thai tlmse which are sent are such as fairly represent the industry of their fellow-countrymen. " Her Majesty's Commissioners will consider that to be the Central Authority in each casetc/iu/i ia slated In be sn by the (Internment of its country. Having once heen pUt in communication with a Central Authority in any country, they must dc cline, absolutely and entirely, any communication with private and unauthorized .individuals ; und, should any such be addressed to them, they can onlv refer to a central body. This decision is essentially necessary, in order to prevent court] sion. " No articles of foreign manufacture, to whomsoever thev may belong, or wheresoever they may be, can be admitted for exhibition unless they conte with the sanction of the Central Authority of the country of which they are the produce. The Commissioners do not insist upon such articles being in nil cases actually forwarded by the Central Authority, though they consider that this would generally be tire most satisfactory arrangement ; imt it is indispensable that the sanction of such authority should in ull cases be expressly given, and that it be held responsible for tlie fitness of such articles for exhibition, and for not authorizing the exhibition of a greater quantity than can be accommodated in the space assigned to the productions of the country in question." A full discussion was then had of the subject thus laid before the committee, and, on motion of the Hon, W. W. Seaton, it was? Resolved, That the Committee of five first charged with this subject hy the Institute (substituting Mr. Kennedy for Mr. Greenough, who is absent) bean Executive Committee to take all necessary steps to carry out the views of the general com mittee.
