BRADLEY, * Postmaster. PROSPECTUS OF THE "NATIONAL MON UMENT," A Xcttkly jouTiiul to bt published in Washhyjtoil, under the sanction of the Washington National Monument Socie.ti/. JAMES C. PICKETT, Editor anp IVulishkk. The Monument Is Intended to be a literary , a^ricultunfl, UUraure of the day-t'he bi^t U.at c"n hi! found in Arneri uopsis of the proceedings of Congress and every thing that such a journal might be expected l..| contain with tlie exception of party politics, which will be at all times mTlLri^omiment will be published for the express and the sole purpose of aiding in the erection of the| nob column now rising ou the banks of the I otouuvc, ui h >n or of the Father of his Country, and which every one , who venerates the name of WAsmXOTON would n-joU ^ . se? completed. AfU-r deducting out of tho subscription | U?u expenses of the journal proposed to be the remaining funds will be faithfully applied, apd out reserve, to the purpose indicated. The aid, therefore, of all who are willing to contribute to so patriotic am 00 joct, and one ?P entirely national, is earnestly requester!. By subscribing to the Mouumont, a valuable journal at u low price may be obtained, while it will be doing some thing, at the same time, towards completing that uisjestic memorial of the Nation's gratitude. The Board of Managers recommend Mr. Pickett, former ly Fourth Auditor of the Treasury and Charge d'Allah s to Peru, who proposes to edit and publish the Monument journal, as one well qualified to perforin the dul:.*s ol editor, and to conduct the paper fiiithfully, and satisfac torily to the subscribers. They assure their fellow-aitiienB that this enterprise is not a speculati got up for indi vidual emolument. Mr. Pickett will make the experiment with his own means and at his own risk; it successful, lie will receive nothing more, and he asks nothing more, than a very moderate compensation for his services. Not one dollar, therefore, of tho direct subscription to the erection of the Monument will be, in any event, applied to the support of the paper, nor the Society in any man ner held pecuniarily responsible. To give the public an idea of what may be done witli the journal it is proposed to publish, it may be stated that a list of fifty thousand paying subscribers, at two dollars each, will yield an annual net profit of from fifty to sixty thousand dollars. The postmasters, and secretaries of all organized bodies throughout the Union, are respectfully requested to act as ageuta in obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the great object of our exertions. As aU editors and publishers, on account of the objoct for which the Monument newspaper will be established, must wish it to succeed, it is hoped thut they will oon ?-??mte to its success by publishing this procpectaa. . *"*7;, ""S will be remitted, aud all lettom and monej All the general au?nt of the MeMuaent Society 1 Ion Klisb a "vTMUlescy, Washington (>rru Eas?Millard l?illmo.> President, A**. ?

My pwn case was Dyspepsia of long duration, and very aggravated in Its character, manifested by an almost total destruction of the digestive functions, great debility, ner vousness, emaciation, und impaired appetite, with pain, and a burning sensutfon in the left side of the chest, palpi tation of the heart, vertigo ami 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 cases of my friends, iu which your Medicine was taken, were Dyspepsia, Chro nic Headache, and 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 a* a cordial, ami in my experience correct* all de rangement of tlie stomach, restores tlie wasted or enfeebled energies of the digestive organs, and imparts strength and reanimation Ui the whole system.

The different locks will bo submitted to a commis sion fbr examination and report. Upon this report, con tracts will, as soon as practicable, he entered into tor fur nishing such locks and keys for four years, with the right on the part of the Postmaster General, fur the time being, to extend and continue the contract in forte for an addi tional term of four years, by giving to the contractor a written notice to that effect, not inure than nine nor less than six months before the termination of the first term of four years. With a view of procuring the best lock at the lowest pri?*, no kind of lock is prescribed as a standard, the De partment relying for a selection on the mechanical skill and ingenuity w hich a fair competition, now Invited, may develop. It is, however, proper to state that a lock suit able for the mail servi -e should possess the following quel lies, viz: durability, uniformity, lightness, and strength. For the purpose of displacing simultaneously all tho mail locks and keys now in use, about thirty thousand new locks and twenty thousand keys adapted thereto will lie required to be furnished by the contractor within seven months after the contract shall have la-en entered Into; afterwards the annual supply will depend on the dura bility of the locks and keys adopted, as well as the in crease of the mall service; but it will probably never ex ceed in amount three tnousand of the former and one thousand of the latter. No lock will be considered If It 1* like any already In general use; nor will anyone with whom the contract may be made be allowed to make, sell, or furnish, any lock or key similar to those contracted for for any other purpose or use than that of the Post Office Department. The kind of lock adopted must be patented, and the pa tentee will he required, on entering intooontract, to make an assignment of his patent for the exclusive use and b#n eflt of the Department, If the Postmaster General shall deem such requirement essential to the Interests of the service. Incase of the failure of the contractor at any time to fulfil fiilthfully the tern is nnc] condition* of his contract, the Postmaster (toners! 8h?U hare the right, besides a resort, to the }*enal remedy hereinafter men tioned, to annul said contract, and to contract anew with any other party or parties as he may see fit, for furnishing similar locks and keys. In deciding upon the proposals and specimens offered, the Postmaster General may deem It expedient to select for the through malls the lock of one bidder, and for the way mails that of another, lie rescrtes, therefore, the rlirht of contracting with different individuals for such different kinds of locks as he may select, and also the right hi reject all the sp<? imens and proposals, If he shall deem that course for the interest of the I department. The party or parties contracting will lie required to give bond, with ample seenrity, in the Sum of thirty thousand dol lars, for a fetthftil performance of the contract. The con tract is to contain provisions for the due and proper in spection of the locks and keys, and also for guarding against their passing into improper bands; the terms of these provisions to he arranged t>etween the Department and the successful bidder, if a bid should be accepted. No application will lie considered if not accompanied with satisfactory evidence of the trustworthy character of the bidder, and of his ability to fulfil the contract. N K. HALL, mar 24?
