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. .

Medicine, "T1IK GREAT VA. REMEDY," in the diseases
which it is designed to cure, are sufficient, in iny opinion,
to tklabliali its reputation, aud swe-ure for it audi patronage
as will adequately reward you tor the discovery of so ines
limable a Medicine?yet the great benefit which 1 have
derived from its use, aud the salutary effects which I have
witnessed from its employment in the cases of several
friends, to whom I had recommended it, constrain me to
contribute, tor such use as you may think proper to make
of it, this formal acknowledgment of its sanitary virtues.
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

energies of the digestive organs, and imparts strength and

JT being deferable to substitute locks and keys of some
1 other kind for those now in use fbr the mall service
of the United States, specimen locks and keys, with pro
posals to furnish the same, will be received and considered
at tho Post Office Department until the first day of July
next. 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.

i "} i>ayf n,'lul 11 (Merchants' Magazine) with a good
deal of attention, and have no limitation in saying that I
think it one of the most valuable nerhnjicaiii that waa
ever published. To the merchant it seems quite Indis
pensable, and to the Htutennun and man of general infor
mation almost equally desirable. It is a grand reponttory
of useful facts and Information, Which can be found no*
where so well digested and so accessible as in these num

Mr. Freeman Hunt.?.Sir: 1 owe you many thanks for
the opportunities I have had to read the Merchants' Mag
azine, and have found it in reality to be a ?magarini, 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 instructs. It is, in fact
a merchant* magazine in the large acceptation 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. But
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 abound with the information the pursuit of his busi
ness and the elevation of the mercantile character re
quires. Nor is its utility at all confined to merchants, hut
extends to the legislator and diplomatist, and to ail w ho
are charged with managing Uie affairs or the nation For
myself, 1 have found it most useftil to me in my senato
rial labors, and have been in the habit for many years of
carefully consulting it.
Very re^iectfully, sir, your obedient servant,
