Van Amburgh's Menagerie
The best word that can possi
bly be said concerning this insti
tution, is thst it has beeo before
the public for more than one
third of a century, and instead of
waning in popularity, it has
been constantly growing in fa
vor, until it has now become as
much a luxury to the communi
ty as a well-conducted family
newspaper, and men, women and
children look for its coming as
auxiously. This year it appears
in a bran new dress and will
come to us in a more attractive
shape than ever. It has been
wintering in Connersville, Indi
ana, and one hundred and fifty
thousand dollars have been ex
pended, during the winter
months, to make it the attractive
exhibition of the day. An army
of artizans and mechanics have
been employed in various depart
ments and the show will be as
magnificent as paint, gilding and
decorations can make it. One
hundred ana nity dapple gray
horses have been purchased ex
preesly for its transportation, and
will form a beautiful and attrac
tive line of procession. Europe

searching for and purchasing at

Among the recant importa-
which is now on ex-

most beautiful and graceful as
well as the most rare of the an--
telope species, and undoubtedly
the only one ever brought to
America. This animal was cap
tured in Central Africa, by Dr.
Livingstone, sent to England
and presented to Lord Hastings,
and purchased by one of Van
Amburgh's Agents, on the de
mise ot that nobleman.
The three-horned bull, captur
ed on the pampas of Venezuela,
is another curiosity of natural
history, and is believed to be
the only one in existence. This
strange animal has three perfect-

horns, one of which grows from
the center of the forehead. It is
perfectly docile, and has been
trained to perform a number of

This new FAMILY MACHINE is
capable of a range and variety of work
such as was thought impossible, a short
time ago, to perform by ' machinery.
We claim, and can show those whom it
may concern, that it is the cheapest,
most bcautitul, delicately arranged
nicely adjusted, easily operated, and
smoothly running of all the family Sew
ing Machines. It is remarkable, not
not only for the range and variety of its
sewing, but also, for the variety and
variety of sewing, but also for the varic
ty and different Kinds of Texture which
it will sew with equal facility and per
fection, using Silk Twist, Linen o Cot
ton Thread, fire or coarse, making the
Interlockod-Elastic-Stitch, alike on both
sides of the fabric sown. Thus beaver

great strength and uniformity of stitch,

fine work on eauze or gostamer tissue,
