To the Subscribers to the Glamorganshire and Monmouthshire Infirmary. •MY LORDS, LADIES, AND GENTLEMEN-, A S the recent death of the late Mr. Reece, Consulting Surgeon tx. to the Glamorganshire and Monmouthshire Infirmary, will, in all probability, be-followed by a change in the present surgical staff .of that Institution, and as an active canvass of the subscribers has been already commenced, I take the liberty of respectfully re- questing the favour of your support, as a Candidate for the office of Surgeon in Ordinary, whenever the expected vacancy shall occur. With regard to my professional qualifications, I may be per- mitted to state that my professional education was received in the JScUyoU of London, Bristol, Paris, and Edinburgh that I gradu- ated in ieine in the last-named University, and that I hold the diplomas of the London College of Surgeons and tHe Apothecaries Company. Soon after passing my examinations, I became: House Surgeon to the Bristol Infirmary, and filled that responsible office for several years, with gratifying testimonials of approbation from the Sub- scribers at large, as well as fiom the Committee and Faculty of the House. I trust that the assurance of adequate qualification afforded by the experience thus necessarily acquired, as well as by an extended professional education, will, on this occasion, secure to me the support of the Subscribers to the Infirmary of my native town. I am, my Lords, Ladies, and Gentlemen, h Your very obedient servant, C. R. VACHELL, M. D., EDIN. Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, &c. Cardiff, July 18th, 1850. DAGTJEBRE-PHQTOGRAPHIC PORTRAITS: TRUE TO NATURE. MONSIEUR JACQUIER HAS the honour to announce, that, in compliance with the re- quest of several distinguished families in Glamorganshire, he has opened for a short season, his PHOTOGRAPHIC ROOMS, At Mr. E. JENKINS', Crockherbtown, Cardiff, Where he respectfully solicits the visits of the Nobility, Gentry, and Public generally, to an inspection of Portraits taken upon the Photographic System, the accuracy of which cannot be questioned in the slightest degree, every lienament and expression of the features, and actual appearance of the sitter, being as faithfully and exactly taken as could be represented in a mirror. The tedium of long sittings, under the old system of portrait painting, is here altogether obviated-a few minutes only, being sufficient to obtain a portrait as true to Nature as Nature's self. The pleasing gratification of possessing the EXACT portraiture of a beloved child, or children, wife, husband, father, mother, sister, brother, dear relative, or friend, in faithful and enduring colours, handsomely set in Morocco frames and glass, at prices coming within the reach of all classes, may be realised in a few minutes, through the agency of this unerring system of copying nature in her very mould and expression. MONS. JACQUIER will be happy to exhibit specimens of fas art, and testimonials with which he has been honoured by the Nobility, Clergy, and Gentry of Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol, Clifton, Newport, &c., &c., to those who may be pleased to favour his rooms with a visit.
