A daguerreotypist of Paris has proposed to the government to have the likenesses of all persons who would obtain passports taken instanter, on paper, by a private invention of his own. A correspondent of one of the New York papers says on the subject: "I am told that the Prefect of Police has presented the project to the Emperor, and that this plan is to be immediately carried into execution. It will now be impossible for robbers and thieves to kill a man in order to take possession of a passport, which would be of no use to them." The daguerreotypist will make a good thing of it.
