VINTON'S PORTRAIT OF DR. PEABODY.

We had the privilege, the other day, of seeing a striking portrait of Dr. Peabody in the studio of Frederick P. Vinton. The painting, although not wholly completed, presents an excellent likeness, a fine effect having been produced by a broad light which gives his features a marked expression. The reverend Dr. is seated, a smile upon his face, with one hand partially extended, as it were in conversation.
