It will bo rnoollected that in 1848, our Piano also received
the First Premium by the same Institute.
Such testimonials are not easily earned, and ore not to
lie lightly regarded. We may therefore say tbat having
taken the First Premium, wherever our Instrument* met
with oompetltion, wo offer them to the public with a con

tw on ty-eight years, very few on** of serioua indispoeltiou

The course Of Instruction includes, besides thy ordinary
I English branches, Natural Philosophy, Chemjstry, Physl
< ulogy, History, Rhetoric, the various branches of Mathu
| unities, and the Latin, Greek, and French Languages Pur
! ticular attention is paid to the higher Mathematics and
j their application to'Mechanics and Engineering; the latter
I and Purveying are taught practically by field operations,
with the use of appropriate instruments. Lectures on
Natural Philosophy and Chemistry, la which all the im
portant principles are illustrated by experiments, are
regularly delivered before the students.
As the object is to make the instruction as thorough
and practical as possible, no expense has been spared in
providing suitable apparatus. It is believed that, in this
respoet, the Institution will compare favorably with any
similar one in the country. A carefully selected library,
of more than one thousand, volumes, containing works on
the various branches of Literature and 3cienee, furnishes
ample reading matter, while a Laboratory, fully supplied
with apparatus and tests, contains all that Is necessury for
practical instruction in Chemical Manipulation.

Mr. 3Mi, L. HAMILTON?Dion Sib: Although the
number and respectability of the testimonials of which
you are already in possession, as to the efficacy of your
Medicine, "THE GREAT VA. REMEDY," in thi diseases
which it is designed to cure, are sufficient, in my opinion,
to ustablish its reputation, and secure for it such patronage
as will adequately reworil you for the discovery of go Ines
timable a Medicine?yet the .great benefit which I have
derived from its use, and the salutary effects which I have
witnessed from its employment in the cases of several
friends, to whom I hua recommended it, constrain mo to
contribute, for such use as you may think proper to make
of It, this formal acknowledgment of its sanitary virtues.
My own case was Dyspepsia of loun duration, and very
aggravated In its chnracter, manifested by an almost total
destruction of the digestive functions, great debility, ner
vousness, emaciation, and impaired appetite, with pain,
and a burning sensation in the left side of the chest, palpi
tation of the heart, vertigo and congestion in the head,
and many other symptoms indicative of the worst type of
the disease, by the use of three or four bottles of your pre
paration, been entirely relieved. The eases of my frionds,
in which your Medicine was taken, were Dyspepsia, Chro
nic Headache, ami Sore Throat, in all of which it proved
efficacious, after the trial of a vast number of other reme
dies without benefit. Your medicine is as pleasant to the'
taste as a cordial, and in my experience corrects all de
rangement of the stomach, restores the wasted or enfeebled
energies of the digestive organs, and imparts strength and
reanimatiqn to the whole system

CAMBRincE, January 25,1846. j
Gentlemen: Your letter of the 24t,h has lieen received, |
in which you ask my opinion as to the value of the Eng- j
lish Exchequer Hoports, from Price downwards to this '
time, to an American Ijiwyer, and as to the expediency of j
reprinting them in this country. Of the hlgn value of j
these Reports, both on the Pleas and Equity sides of the ;
Court, I have not the least doubt?the decisions of this 1
Court for the last fifteen or twenty years, both at Equity j
and In Common Law, being entitled to equal respect with
any others in England. I should think an American
Lawyer's Library essentially Incomplete Without them.
I am, gentlemen, very respectfully yours,

By a late re-organiiatlon of this department of Dela
ware College, the board of Trustees have taken measures
V^?n " n, w and improved foundation, and to
endow it with advantage posw-ssed by few similar insti
tutlons in the country. The Academy, heretofore merged
in the College, and of course subjected to all the evils 1
which have been found to attend the amalgamation of tho
two departments In the same building, and under the
same government, now enjoys the privilege of a separate
establishment, without losing thoso which result from its
relation to the College proper.
A large and elegant odifloo, with all tho necessary fix
tures of a complete boarding establishment, has l>ocn
erected and furnished, in which the students of (he Acad
em]r ,lV'a, ' under the immediate charge of the Principal
and his Assistants; and all its exercises arc conducted on
a system of its own, uninterrupted bv the Interests or
operations of Uio other department. The furniture of the
study-rooms and dormitories has been chosen with pecu
Imr referent to comfort and convenience for study ; and
no expense has been spared in providing the apparatus
necessary to render the nutans of Instruction complete
giving to Newark Acs-lemy facilities fotprivaU study aud
comfortable accommodation of students, fully oqual to
those afforded by many of our colleges.
From Its intimate relation to the College, student* of
the Academy enjoy many advantages not generally ob
tained at Institutions of this kind. Those who wish to
pursue some particular branch, which falls more properly
within the College course, may he admitted to recite In
any or the College classes. Students also of proper a?o
and discretion, by recommendation of the Principal, and
permission of the Faculty, may enjoy the uso of the Col
lege Library without additional charge. Admission also
may be had to the Lectures, and such oilier privileges of
the College as can be profitably enjoyed by academical

An enlightened public, sentiment has everywhere repu
diated a reckless use of drugs iu the treatment of disease ;

imperatively demanded Reform." A return from a wide
and fatal departure from the simplicity of Nature's laws
is called for, alike by a rational love of happiness aud the
deplorable exigencies of our condition. Hydropathy, or a
scientific use of water as a restorative and curative agent,
is a practical substitution of a simple and remarkably effi
cacious mode of curing the sick; for that system of drug
ging, depleting, and cauterizing, which, in obtaining the
mastery over disease, too frequently places the patient be
yond the reach of further annoyance. Tho success of the
various Water Cure establishments in this country, to say
nothing of any other, has fully confirmed the hopes of tie
early discoverers and promulgators of tho great truths
upon which the system. is founded, and renders verbid
communications unnecessary. It fa deemed sufficient to
say, that the " Cold Spring Water Cure " will compare fa

Ashlasd, 20th Julv, 1840.
Dear Sir: I wish to express to you the gratification f
derived on receiving the July number of the Merchants'
Magaxine and Commercial Review, from viewing your
portrait in the beginning, and from reading your nddress
to your friends at the end of it. Wlicn we foel under ob
ligations to those who have contributed to our informa
tion and amusement, we arc naturally desirous to possess
all the knowledge of them, of their appearance, of the fea
tures of their countenance, and of the character and hab
its of their mind, which we can acquire. You have placed
your numerous readers (at least you liavo me, if 1 may
not speak for them) under those obligations: and the
number of your valuable work now Worn me, in somo
degree, satisfios the desire to which I have alluded.
I have become quite familiar with the Magaxine and
Review, and have no hesitation in expressing my humble
opinion that it is eminently untitled to tho public regard
and support. It collects and arranges, In good order, a large
amount of valuable statistical and other information,
highly useful not only to the merchant, but to the states
man, to tho cultivator of the earth,.to the manufacturer,
to t he mariner, in short, to all classes of the business aud
rending community.
Entertaining this oplulon.1 am ulad that It has lieen, and
hope that It may continue to be, liberally patronized.
Offering you cordial assurances of my esteem and re
gard, I am truly your friend aud obedient servant,

Extract qf a letter from JJon. Millard Filhturre.
"I havo read it (Merchants' Magazine) with a good
doal of attention, and have no hesitation in saying that I
think it ono of the most valuuble periodicals that was
ever published. To the lucrohaut It seems quite Indis
pensable, and to the statesman and man of general infor
mation almost equally desirable. It Is a graud repository
of useful facts and Information, which can be found no
where so well digested and so accessible as in thnae num

Mr. Freeman Hunt,?Sir: I owo you many thanks for
the opportunities I have had to read the Merchants' Mag
azine, and havo found it In reality to be a mayaxive, and
that well replenished, of all the useful matter which the
title would imply, and presented with a fullness and
clearness which delights while it instruct*. It is, in fact,
a mrrrhnnW maga/.iue In the large ac<-eptation of the
term?merchants who go between nations, whose large
operations bring many departments of knowledge, and a
view of the state of the world, into daily requisition. Hut
it is not the great merchant only, but the one of more
modest, but, nevertheless, of most useful operations?the
merchant of the interior also?who will find this magazine
to atKHind with tho information tho pursuit of bis busi
ness and the elevation of the mercantile character re
quires. Nor is Its utility at all confined to merchants, but
extends to the legislator ami diplomatist, ami to all who
are charged with managing the affairs of the nation, For
myself, 1 havo found It most useful to mo in my senato

Austin's Magic Frreier,
Through in six minute*. For the preparation of
loo Crenma, Water Ices, &c.?Patented Sep
tember lt>, 184B:
'pHK distlnguliflng merits of this Apparatus are?
X 1st. The astonishing rapidity of tho process, surpass
ing bellpf?hcnce the name.
2d. The Cream during the progress of freotlng becomcs
charged with atmospheric air, by which it nearly double*
in bulk, end obtains that peculiar smoothness, lightness,
and delicacy of flavor, for which the Icc Cnsam of our
best Confectioners is so highly MM.
3d. It does not require a tenth part of the labor that
the common Kreeser does.
4th. It does Its work better, producing a better article,
in every respect, than bv any other mode.
6th. Thorc Is a considerable saving in ice, as the tub
no ds no replenishing during the operation.
The annexed testimonial from the Proprietor of the
Kutnw House will put to rest all doubt.
" Having witnessed the process of freezing Iec Cream
In Austin's Magic Freezer, two quarts of Cream having
been frozen )n tne incredible short time of sis minutes, 1
cheerfully recommend It to the public."
Kutaw House, Baltimore, May 16,1848.
" This Is to certify, that during the summer ef 1848.1
nsed one of A ustin's Patent loo Cream Froeiers of Um
largest size, (10 gallons,) making from 10 to f>0 gallons
per day during tne season ; and so far as regards expedi
tion and power, I consider It decidedly the best freeter
now in use, as I have hod with it no difflcuMr In making
ten gallons of superior qiiality Ice Cream Crom live of
plain Cream, In thiTty minutes from the time I com
menced working It. A. 11. BROWN,
Baltimore, April ?, 1851."
