In the announcement which ran in the same newspaper on September 18, 1847.  Our fellow-townsman, W. G. Brown, has shown us several specimens of the “Daguerrean art”—taken by himself—which are equal to any thing of the kind ever exhibited in this village.—We have now in our possession a likeness of the lamented Silas Wright, taken by Mr. Brown, from an engraving in the ‘American Quarterly Journal of Agriculture and Science,’ which is pronounced to be the most correct one ever published.  Persons wishing for copies should apply immediately.
