" Eureka ! nreka ! I Eureka III" " A thing of beauty is a joy forever." Keatt. We would most respectfully solicit your attention to the New Style of Ileliographic Portraiture, taken and finished on plate glass in the most beautiful manner and as durable as the plates on which they are made, vastly superior to the old mode of coloring, as every line of the original im pression by this means only is retained. Tbe chief objection to Photography, colored either in water colors or oil, even by the must able artist, is the liability to alter the expression of tbe likeness; but by this process tbe image is indelibly fixed upon glass with the natural colors, while no paint is applied to the picture. We likewise will furairh Portraits, size of life on canvas, avoiding the use of paper entirely ; thus securing the most perfect picture, being, in fact, an oil painting with the accura cy of the Camera Image ; hsving engaged the services of E. C. Hawkins, of Cincinnati, the inventor, who stands at the bead of Photography, and the able services of Mr. Harding, the artist, we hope we have offered you induce menta that will be appreciated. We still are taking (every day) at our old stand the best Daguerreotype. DOBYNS HARRINGTON, mhi 3t;dp No. 6. corner Camp and Canal.
