THE subscriber would respectfully invite public attention to the new and beautiful pictures which he is now taking at his rooms in Exchange Building. These pictures are taken on fine plate Glass, and rendered imperishable by cementing to another glass, with the picture inside. They are bold, clear and distinct, are not reversed, and will not change in any climate. We are enabled to take better likenesses of Children by this process, as we can operate in one-fifth the time required to take a Daguerreotype. Copies taken of Daguerre- otypes, Portraits, &c.
