Among other neglected local notices, we have failed before to speak of the erection of a sky-light Daguerrean building, expressly for that purpose. Messrs. Akin & Minnich have fitted up a neat room on Main street, next to the Bank building, and are now taking as fine ambrotype pictures as can be secured anywhere. They are both permanent residents, and having evinced such enterprize we hope they will be liberally patronized.
