P H O T O G R A P H I C    I N S T I T U T E .      MR.
PLUMBE, professor of Photography, has the honor to an-
nounce to the admirers of Nature's Pencilings, that a late arrival
from Paris now enables him to exhibit specimens of the art pro-
duced by M. Daguerre's last very important improvement, which
would seem to the ne plus ultra of perfection, and render idle
all further attempts at the attainment of any greater degree of
excellence in Photographic Portraiture.
   Miniatures taken and Apparatus and Instructions furnished,
upon M. Daguerre's new plan.  Plates, Miniature Cases, and
every other article of Photography, always on hand.   isSt   j14
