   DAGUERREOTYPE.  Mr. H. I Abell, 123 Washington street, has shown us 
some beautiful photographic miniatures, which indicate that he has 
attained to great perfection in this novel and ingenious process of 
transferring a person's phiz to a silver plate, in considerably less 
than no time.  One great excellence in his miniatures is the 
distinctness with which the features are delineated.  Those who wish to 
see themselves as they are seen, have but to call at his room, and he 
will at any time show them up.

Posted for your enjoyment.     Gary W. Ewer
