SIR NOEL PATON'S GREAT PICTURE. We have been favoured with an inspection of Sir Noel Patron's great picture called "Morll Janua Vitse" (Death the Gate ot Life) now on view at the entrance to the pier, and we have no hesitation in predicting that a visit will be one of the rarest and best treats which can be afforded to visitors and others during the present season. Theologians and divines may write and say mnch on the subject of death as the gate of life, but half-an-hour spent in studying this great and splendid work will be of immense profit to any intelligent mind. The artist has succeeded with his brusk in a pourtrayal of great power and beauty. Any description of the picture must fail, as language cannot convey a realistic idea of what it is, and it is only through the power of the e) e that anything like a definite idea of its worth can bo formed. The central inci- dent of the piotare is the Angel of Death summon- ing the Christian, after his final conflict with evil, to the other and higher life. Where all the points of a picture are so perfect it is difficult to particu- larise, and it must suffice to say for the present that the conception of the idea was sublime and its convey anceto caovasli has shown the hand of a perfect artist hand. It was tor the production of this work chiefly that Sir Noel was knighted. It has been twice ex- hibited before Her Majesty the Queen and the mem- bers of the Royal family, by Her Majesty's special command, once at Balmoral and the second time at Windsor. Mr S. W. Hill, who is connected with a well-Known Birmingham firm, has engaged the pic- ture entirely an his own risk, aud is now making a tour through the Provinces. It is estimated that upwards of a million of persona have already paid for permission to view it, and we can honestly say that a rich treat will be missed by those of our leaders who do not avail themselves of this oppor- tunity.
