We notice in our burying ground some beautiful grave stones from the Dubuque City Marble Works of Herrick & Dudley. The material is very fine, and the work is in the best style, and is furnished at low rates. At the head of the grave of the late Rev. Alfred Bishop is a very handsome white slab, in which is set a dagnerreotype (sic)likeness of the deceased, which will be recognized at one as a most faithful portrait of the loved and lamented original. The picture is from gallery of Mr. J.P. McKinney, of Dubuque, and reflects great credit upon his artistic skill.
