Messrs. Clark & Barker are now engaged in taking transcripts of "the human face divine" at their room over W. M. Baker's store. We have examined their specimens and do not hesitate to pronounce them the best Ambrotypes we have ever seen. Here is a fine opportunity offered to the young folks of either sex to make their sweet-hearts a nice present. What more suitable memento could you present to a friend living in a distant land! and when that friend is mouldering in the clay what more pleasing and refiningin its influence, though sad be the associations, than to gaze on the features of the [sic.]"the loved and lost"? By the way, Mr. Clark is a most pleasant operator and will impress your features on glass with the greatest ease imaginable.
