The Weather. Saturday was another ex
cessively hot day. The way in which srniincr
lingers in the lap of autumn is more remarka
ble than agreeable.
Hi v eh News. The Cumberland was falling
" slowly on Saturday, with sufficient water on
the shoals for binall class boats.
There were bo arrivals np to 3 P. If.
The Monticello and Magnolia departed, tli
former for Puducali and the latter for Cincin
; The Louisville Courier of the 14th instant,
nays: "The hull of Capt. Shaw's new boat,
mentioned ia the Courier yesterday, arrived
from Paducab. yesterday in tow of the Midat.
The boat Las been brought here to receive her
machinery, whiJ was made by Roach & Long,
and has been all ready to go on board for sev
eral weeks. The cabin work will be made by
Logan & Co. Capt. Shaw is building the boat
for the trade between this city and Nashville.
The name given her is LltincJn) LetcU."
The Cincinnati Commercial of the 12th, an
nounces the D. A. Given and Brazil both up
for Nashville. '
In our report of the proceedings of the
'Council on Thursday evening, the following
AM. Davis, a bill to reduce the expenses of the
corporation. It imposes the responsibility of mak
ing contracts and spending money entirely upon the
Major. It parsed second reading, and was referred
to a eelcct committee of three to report at the next
' meeting of the Board. Capt. Davi, Anderson and
Coltart, were appointed said committee.
This is an important bill, and is entitled to a
more particular notice, in order that its pro
visions may be better understood. Those fa
miliar with the present system under which
our city afTairs are administered, are aware
that the heads of committees are authorized
to make contracls fur improvements find re
pairs in their respective departments, and in
cur liabilities as they msy deem proper or
necessary. The bill of Capt, Davis proposes
an entire change in this system. It provides
that whenever an apparent necessity arises for
the expenditure of any money in any depart
ment, the Mayor shall be called upon to en
quire into the matter; and it it is a 6treet im
provement, to secure the aid of the City En
gineer. Should they deem the proposed im
provement or outlay unnecessary, they will eo
report to the Board of Aldermen, whose judg
ment shall be final. Should they decide oth
erwise, they will ascertain the lowest figure at
which the work can be done, decide upon the
plan, kc, and eo report to the Board, whose
action shall be final as before. This imposes
the responsibility of expending money upon
the Mayor aud Aldermen, in Committee of the
whole, and must necessarily result in a salutary
reform. As we have before remarked, this is
an important bill, and though no doubt sus
ceptible of 60me auier.dmentsto perfect it, it
fchoold receive the attention of onr Aldermen.
Large Sale of Real Estate. Lin!sley &
Crockett advertise a large sale of lots in Edge
field, to come off on the 1 lib of October next.
Persons desirous of securing a home will hard
ly find a better opportunity. The terms are
unusually favorable, aud the property among
the most desirable in market. .
Optics. Mr. Summons will re-open his office
to-day, after spending several days in some of
the adjoining towns. If any of our readers
who wear spectacles have not examined his,
we advise them to do so at once.
Stonb Masons. The attention of Stone
Masons is directed to the advertisement of B.
F. Fostkb & Co., proprietors of Lauderdale
Factory, calling lor bids upon a heavy job of
Races to-day. The Fall Races commence
to-day over the Nashville Course with a
sweetake. Four celebrated horses will
compete, and rare sport may be anticipated.
The 6tafe of negotiations at the Court
of St. Jamea are euch as to require the pres
ence of James Buchanan, D. S. Minister thero
beyond the 1st of October, the time appointed
for his return. It is presumed that his deten
tion has reference to the Central American
LTiHEEjriAX Eioucs. An immense number
of Irifeh are emigrat ing to California, Induced
alike by the low fare, $30 steerage passage by
the Nicaragua line, and the return of a few
lucky ones; and a few days nince, the cars bore
away a large number from Boston, to taka the
6tearaer at New York.

JH. S EMMONS, English Optician, late oi the firm of
H. Semmon t Son, Manufacturer and Inventor of the
newly invented and improved Spectacles, from the improved
Spectacle Manufactory and Cornwall Optician establishment.
East Bridge Truro, resaectfully announces his arrival on a
professional visit, with a splendid assortment of his newly
indented and improved Spectacles, and may be consulted
at his office, on the Square, room over -
Berry'a Book Store, N&snville, Tenn.
These celebrated Spectacles are marfe cf Brazilian Sand,
And known under the name of Brazilian Pebbles, and con
structed in accordance with the philosophy of nature, in
the peculiar form of a concavo-convex mirror, admirably
adapted to the organ of sight, and can be used by the old
and the young to pursue the most minute employment, ei
their by day or candle light, with perfect ease, and never,
cause that giddiness of the head or unpleasant sensation to
the eyes that many experience from using the comn'onkind,

Memphis, March SUh, 1855.
Ma. J. H. Fbmwoss Sir : the use I have made or the pair
of Glasses obtain. d from yon, satisfies me of the utility and
value of the form and material by which tbey are distin
guished. Without magnifying the object beyond the site
apoarent to the atural vision, they render it distinct and
clear without f itigue to the eye.
60 far as my limited experience extends, I am very much
pleased wUh them.
Very respectfully your ob't scrv't,
1 J. n. McMAHON.
From Hon. Geo. D. Prentice, Editor Louisville Journal.
Undoubtedly they are the best Spectacles lu the
world. The continuous use of them for any number of hours
does not fatigue the eyes in the least, and the vision of age
ia rendered by them in all respects lite that of youth.
Memphis, March 14th, 1S55.
' Ms. J. H. Pxmhosb Dear Sir: 1 have carefully examined
your Brsxilian Pebble Spectacles, and most cheerfully add
my testimony to their superiority over any other lenses I
have yet seen.
Besides the (.hilosopry of this form, shape, Ac, the re
markable transparency and hardness of the material ren
der them peculiarly adapted to the purposes of assisting
impaired vision, which, uniike otter Spectacles, do so with
out fatiguing the eye by their use.
I cau, my dear sir, cordially recommend your Brazilian
Pebbles to my friends as especially worthy of their confi
dence, and feel assure' I that a trial will in every case give
satisfaction. I am, my dear sir, truly yours, Ac.

and recommend them to all persons requirfnr the use of
Spectacles. L. SHANKS, M. D.,

Mr. J. IT. Sexmoss: Sir: Uaviog examined your Specta
cles constructnl of concavo convex Brazilian Pebbles, take
pleasure In testifying to their advantages over the ordinary
glass spectacles. Their superior hardness prevents them
being defected by scratches ; the peculittr manner in which
they are ground and polished, together wlt'u their transpar
ency, obviate the strain usually experienced in wearing
glasses, and their coolness especially, recommends them to
those having weak, irritable ey a.

Mb. J. n. Srvwoss Sir : I have been us;ng fcr one week

the spectacles thatl have used heretofore, hurt them, aud
I could not-read with any satisfaction. I consider your
spectacle a great improvement upon any that I have ever
seen. . . Yours, respectfully, G. M. FOGG.

fying to their efficiency in restoring or relieving impaired

were performed with much labor to the eye, and often with
pain; but since I have used your Brsailian Peblle I have

the glasses or the material, or both combined,' I cannot say.
I prefer them to any glasses I have ever used, and take
pleasure in recommending them to the public.

The Howard Association is constantly receiving
letters from absentees abroad, requesting the offi
cers to look after their servant?, (the lazy blacks
whom they left behind,) and see that they do not
suffer lor want of provisions, medical attendance,
Lc.t but not a dime do these absentees many of
them rich in tbw world's goods send, as a contri
bution to our afflicted and destitute poor, and not
even to pay for the aid they expect from the Asso
ciation, for their negroes, whom they left at home
upon "the commons," totally unprovided for, to
"root pig, or die." One of those "whole-souled,"
liberal gents writes, that as the contributions to the
Howard Association are made for the benefit of the
people of Norfolk, he trusts that hia servant will be
allowed as much meal, bacon, &c, as will comfort
ably support her during hia absence ? And this
man is wealthy, and yet bas not contributed one mite
towards the relief of the destitute widows, orphans
and tick of his native city! The Association intend
to make a publie txpone of these- letters, with the
ur'Ueri names attached in full after the fatal scourge
will have passed away, when some highly unique
and interesting developments may be anticipated.
