Jacky Jacky – That well known and talented artist, Mr. Rodius, has published a lithographic portrait of this aboriginal, who acted so conspicuous and praiseworthy a part towards the lamented Mr. Kennedy. It is an excellent likeness and touched off in a spirited and artist like manner; the intelligence of the countenance, (so unlike the mass of Aborigines,) is very happily caught. The low price which is charged for the portrait, linked with the interest attached to it, will doubtlessly insure the artist an extensive sale.
