We are called upoa to record the action of that fUl de stroyer, Death, Jt the demise of the veteran American painter, Rembrandt Ptale, which event occurred on the morning of the tut instant, at bin maidens# in Pb.ndel* phia. Mr. Peaie had already paaseJ the allotted term of human life?three eoore yearn aud ten? reached bin eighty third year on the 22a Jay of February lut. A few month* ?*o he r* -eired a eer' aoctdeef while in Connecticut, and waa ob.igeu u> main some l ine in gtonmston, where, tbroeeii ibe . no of: ??? o' fHen<la he re overed ?uth, .eotiy to warrant h.s rett rn home. he waa taken ill on the 21, tuid died ut already iu. ad. Rembrandt Fecie waa born iu Bucko oi^tty, Psnnryl vanta, on the anmrereary of tiie Birthday of ton, February 22,1788 He came of gool *to-.?,\ t) ?, father, Chariea Witnon Peaie, waa not only one of the beat patriots of the Revolution, but also a portrs t painter Of great excellence, and one of tie 'uthcra of art a America. A sketch of the life and inbora of the *oo would be incomplete without a proper reference to the lather, to whose lore of art and eminence in his prol'ea t on b.s ton Rembrandt owea much of his success. The "times that tried men'a soulg" were not congenial to the culture of art; war absorbed all energies that, In timet of peace, might have been turned with success into the great eh. nnela ot ?-.ommerce, od.cation, mechanics and Bne art*. The claims of country were paramount to all others. Hence we find the artist, tbe lawyer, the clergyman, tbe statesman, the farm r and the mcchamo all In tbo ranks doing battle for that flroedim wbicb ia now our blessed Inheritance. Cbarlea Wil son t'eaie, though firing extraordinary promtae as an artist, diu Dot abrint from h.s country a cad, but girded on hn armor, and followed tbe fortunes of Washington until victory gave tbe weary patriots rosl. tar. Peak- waa born at Chester, on tbe eastern shore of Maryland, April 10, 17-11; thus being three years tbt junior ol West and Copley. H'a gen in was of a very versatile character, being, as his biographer says, " barneaa-maker, clock and watchmaker, tilt or smith, painter in eil, crayon and miniature; mould ed tbe giasaea, aori made the absgreen cases for the latter ; was a soldier, legislator, lecturer, and preserver o' auimals, wboso deficiencies be supplied by giiss eyes and artificial limbs; constructed fir himself a violin and guitar modelled in clay, wax and plaster, ami was tbe first dent: t In this oountry wbo made aets of enamelled teeth." Not until be was twenty six ysarsoi age did be turn bit attention to oil | a'nting. Encouraged by tbe material aid of several gentlemen of Annapolis, bo waa enabled to proceed to London, and pursued bis studies m the Royal Academy during tbo years 1780-81, ntider tbe direct tuition of Benjamin West, wbo ever took mnch interest In bis countrymen. Reluming home, be pursued bis profession (and the art of wai) with great success, punting portraits of the great men of thai great era, woicli are aow regarded as almost priceless legacifd of bit countrymen. After tbe cloee of the war tar. Peala painted assiduously in Philadelphia, and la 1706 commenced the great museum wbicb bore his name, a bratch of which oacupied a build.rgon Broadway nygatoto he I'ark The large collection of por tra'.ta note m Barnum aeaUhliabmeat was lortned by this Mr. C W. I'eale. The build .ug in ltiilacelpbia near tbe site of the Continental Hotel, waa burned down several years since, and the principal contents of Peala's museum of this city were loug ago transferred to Hi Barnum. In 1701 be made the hri t effort ever made la America to found an academy o' design, where native artists might study and have their productions placed on exhibition for tbe pubile good. rnougb his first attempt did not prove a success, the tireless worker again tiled, and in lfiO'l succeeded so far In bis piaos as to see tbe establishment of the Philadelphia Academy of Fine Arts, and lived to tee it beoume a noble monument to bis memory. He contributed to seventeen exhibition* of the Academy, ckMing bit extraordinary and uarfnl life in 1827 From association w lib such a father the ton could b it attain to eminence Born wben Uie parent was with Washington, enduring the anfferings of Valley Forge, Rembrandt 's first \ ears were passed i.nder the care of his admirable romp t Bis artistic training was excellent, for be commenced drawing at an esrly age, and did not begin to paint un'il be was able to delineate anatomical hgnret with pen and ink, without perilling.

In the autumo of 1700 Washington honored tbe young artUl with three sittings of three hours each. In titer years this study, aired by a faith ful memory, mad tbe portrait of the hero painted by the artist's lather, enabled Mr. lvale to produce a mag nil,cent bead of the rather of his country, which lb relative* and friends of Washington pronounced a most i extraordinary iik.n?
