MORRIS'S PATENT DOOR PLATES. A NEW article i»ir superior to anything of the kinJ ever yet offered to the public, and which for simplicity, durability and cheapness, is not cquiilled by any of the old ones now in use. The adviintages these plates have over the old engraved ones, is, that they will never turn black or tarnish like those made of silver or brass. They need no scouring with chalk every week—they will always retain their fine lustre hy simply rubbing them over occasionally with a silk handkerchief or piece of buckskin, and wiping off the dust that inny adhere to the surface. The name in these plates may he changed Cor a trifle,—the letters which compose it, being moveiiblc,—and any other name can be inserted in its slcad, by tending 1 thn plate to the owner of the patent (Henry Seilz, of Marietta, Lancaster County, Pa-,) which is another great advantage over the old engraved ones,—which cannot be oh<iuncd. Any person desirous of such a plate, can obtain nne by ad...
