Letter Headsaml Note Heads (University heading) for sale at the Aiious office, ]ut up iu " Hodder's Patent Blotting Table t,"- lOOatid 120 sheets to the book. From James It. Osgood & Co., Boston i tlirough their local ogants, Douglas & Co., we have raceived several copies of their heliotype pictures. The heliotype is the result of a combination of the photographer's, graver's, auü printers art. Iu the photograph, aftet the aun has taken the first picture or negativa each suucessive copy is made by the sun, and it is thereforu a sun print. The procees in the production of the heliotype picture is to photugraph it upon a prepared gelatin plate inatettil of upou a metal píate. This gelatin plate ia thon exposed to the sun's rays and a plate is made for tlio priuter's use, without graver or tooi, and {rom which impressious may be multiplied rapidly and perfectly by the ordiimry proceas of priuting. The copy prod u ued is necessanly a perfect copy, more perfect than can be produced by the graver upon wood or metal, for the sun artist transfers every line, each light and sliade, as mortal haud cauuot. By this process, also, the productiou of tiue pictures is so cheapened that copies of the " üld Mastevs," as well as of modern paiutiugs, are within the reach of the ordiimry lover of the beautiful, and may be found il] the homes of the poor,- not hatchet engnyinga or mere daubs, but pictures as perfect as those which have heretofore adorned only tho walls of the rich.
