A PORTRAIT. – Mr. Charles Rodius, the celebrated artist, has published a lithographic portrait of Perry, the black, within the last week. The likeness is extremely felicitous, and the character of the ebony stranger is most faithfully preserved. Independently of the likeness, the touch of the artist is visible throughout. The low price at which the prints are charged- coloured prints two and sixpence, uncoloured eighteen pence- must ensure them the most exclusive circulation amongst those who feel an interest in the promotion of the P.R interests in Australia.
