• . . T Great Success . The recent invention of applying daguerreotypes to hats , as adopted b y Messrs .

We have a / ways noticed that when a man is successful through any peculiar feature in his business pursuits , imitators are sure to spring up and appropriate to themselves what of right belongs to the projectors , but in the present instance the foresi ght and keen perception of Messrs .

We noticed the other day several firemen purchasing hats with their likenesses placed in them , which we suppose were intended to be exchanged for those of our Baltimore visitors . The idea was very good , and will keep in remembrance the kind attentions always bestowe...

Talk on Change . The talk turned upon the Turkey question , and what would probably be its end . A gentleman said he saw that the bone of contention was likely to lead to some more solid demonstration , and had no doubt but that in the end Turkey must come down . The opening of the Palace was talked about , and it was the general opinion that on the 15 th of this month we would see such a crowd as New York had never witnessed before . It was doubted whether we would be able to find standing-room for the visitors . The Third Avenue Excursion was commented on , and a vote of thanks tendered to the Editor of the Clipper for his speech on that occasion . Out of respect to that speech the board adjourned .
