A weekly journal to be published in Washington,
under the sanction of the Washington National
Monument Society.
JAMES C. PICKETT, Editor and Pcblishdu
The Monument Is Intended to be a literary, agricultural,
and miscellaneous paper. It will contain selections of the
literature of the day?the best that can be found In Ameri
can and English publications: interesting sclentitioarticles,
embracing mechanics; foreign and domestic news; a sy
nopsis of the proceedings of Congress, and every thing
that such a journal might be e xp^-ted _ to contain .with
the exception of party i>olitics, which will b? at all times
most rigorously excluded. _ ,
The Monument will be published for the express and
the solo purpose of aiding in the erection of the noble
column now rising on the bunks of the i'otomac, in hon
or of the Father of his Country, and which every one
who venerates the name of Washington would rejoice to
soo completed. After (Inducting out of the subscription
the expenses of the journal proposed to be published,
the remaining funds will be faithfully applied, and with
out reserve, to the purpose indicated. The aid, therefore,
of all who an> willing to contribute to so patriotic an ob
ject, and one so entirely national, is earnestly requested.
By subscribing to the Monument, a valuable journal at a
low price may be obtained, while It will be doing some
thing, at the some time, towards completing that majestic
memorial of the Nation's gratitude. .. -
Thu Board of Managers reeommond Mr. Pickett, former
ly Fourth Auditor of the Treasury and Charge d' Affairs to
rcru, who proposes to edit and publish the Monument
journal, as one well qualified to perform the duties ot
editor, and to conduct the paper faithfully, and satisfac
torily to the subscribers. They assure their fellow-citterns
that this enterprise is not a speculation got up for indi
vidual emolument. Mr. Pickett will make the experiment
with his own means and at his own risk; if successful, he
will receive nothing more, and he asks nothing more,
than a very moderate compensation for his services. Not
one dollar, therefore, of the 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 w.th 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 noaies
throughout the Union, are respectfully requested to act
as agents in obtaining subscription^hus aiding the great
ohject of our exertions.
As all editors and publishers, on account of the object
for which the Monument newspaper will bo established,
must wish it to succeed, it ii> hoped that*they will con- ,
tribute to its suoccss by publishing this prospectus.
All moneys will be remitted, and all letters and moneys
addressed prepaid, to the general agent of the Monument
Society, Hon. Kllsha Whittlesey, Washington.

Anitln'a Hagle Freeaer,
Through in lix minuta. For the preparation of
loe Creams, Water Icea, 4c.?Patented Sep
tember 19, 1848.
THE dlstingulslng merits of this Apparshis are?
1st. The astonishing rapidity Of the process, surpass
ing belief?henoe the name.
2d. The Cream during ths progress of freering becomes
charged wHh atmospheric air, by which It nearlv doubles
in bulk, and obtains that peculiar smoothness, lightness,
and delicacy of flavor, for which the Ice Cream of our
best Omfrctloners is so highly prised.
3d. it does not Tequlre a tenth part ot the labor that
the common Freeter does.
4th. It does Ka work better, prodndng a better article,
In every respect, than by anyotber mode.
6th. There is a considerable saving in loe, as the tub
needs no replenishing duringthe operation.
The annexed testimonial from the Proprietor of the
Eutaw House will put to rest ail doubt.
? Having witnessed the process or freetlng loc Cream
In Austin's Magic Freeser, two quarts of Cream having
been froten in the Incredible short time of six minutes, I
cheerfhlly reoommend it to the public."
Eutaw House, Baltimore, May 16,1848.
"This Is to oertiiy, that during the summer of IMC I
used one of Austin's Patent Ice Cream Freesers of the
largest site, (10 callous,) making from 10 to AO gallons
per day during the season; and so Sir as regards expedi
tion and power, I consider it decidedly the best freeter
now In use, as I have bad with It no diflcttity la making
ten gallons of superior quality Ice Cream from five of
plain Cream, In thirty minutes from the time I com
menced working It. A. H. BROWN,

Ashland, 20th July, 1849.
Dear Bir: I wUh to express to you U?e graUttc^ion I
derived on receiving the July number of the Merchant
Magazine and Commercial Keview, irom viewing your
portrait in the beginning, and from reading your addreM
to your friends at the end of it. When
liKatlons to those who have contributed to our informa
tion and amusement, we are naturally desirous to possess
all the kuowlodge of them, of theirappearance,of tfeftTe*
tares of their countenance, and of the character and bab
its of their mind, which we can acquire. You have placed
your numerous readers (at least you have me, " 1l"J*5r
uot speak for them) under those obligations; and the
number of your valuable work now l>efore me, in some
degree, satisfies the desire to which 1 have alluded.
I have become quite familiar with the Magazine sua
lie view, and have ho hesitation in expressing toy bumble
opinion that it is eminently entitled to the public regard
aud support. It col lects and arrangos, 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 the cultivator of the earth, to the manufacturer,
to the mariner, in short, to all classes of the business and
reading community.
Entertaining this opinion, I am glad that it has been, and
hope that it may continue to be, liberally patronised.
Offering you cordial assurances of my esteem and re
gard, I am truly your friend and obedient servant,
Freeman Hunt, esq. H. CLAY.
Extract of a letter from Hon. Millard Mllmore.
"I lmve read it (Merchants' Magazine) with a good
deal of attention, and have no hesitation in saying that I
think it one of the most valuable periodicals that was
ever published. To the merchant it seems quite India
pensablo, and to the statesman and man of general infer
mation almost equally desirable. It in a grand repowtory
of useful facts and information, which can be found no
where so well digested and bo accessible as in these num
bers. I only regret that I do not own the whole work."
Letter from, the Hon. Thamat H. Benton.
Washington Citt, April 20,1849.
Mr. Freeman Hunt.?Air: I owe you many thanks for _
the opportunities 1 have had to read the Merchants' Mag
azine, and have found it in reality to be a magazine, 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 ft
view of the state of the world, into daily requisition. But
it is not the great merchant only, but the one of more
modoat, 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, but
extends to the legislator and diplomatist, and to all who
are charged with managing the affairs of the nation. For
myself, I have found it most useful to me in my senato
rial labors, and havo been in the habit for many years of
carefully consulting it.
Very respectfully, sir, your obedient servant,
LeUer from Hon. Wm. H. Seivard.
My Dear Sir: Have the goodness to place my name on
your list of subscribers for the Merchants' Magazine. I
regard it as an invaluable work for the use of all who
would understand not merely commercial operations in
this extending country, but the fiscal and commercial
questions involved in the administration of the govera
meDt I am, with great respect, your humble servant,
Freeman Hunt, esq. WILLIAM H. SE^YARD.

of a first class Piano, one that ladies can perform on

grating, that is chaste of style and elegantly made up ot
straight and regular curve lines, that will last an age?to
give them a call. The ancient standing of the Baltimore

A line of omnibuses runs from the steamboat landing!
in Buffalo to the springs every ten minutes.
The house and grounds arc near the extensive and
beautiful green-houses and nurseries of the Messrs. Hodges
A Bryants; and the scenery in ail directions is unsur

points of view, from which may bo taken in at a glance
the broad expanse of Lake Erie, the Niagara flowing ma
jestically towards the Falls, extensive forests, and the
"Queen City of the 1-akes." with Its moving panorama of
steamboats and ceaseless enterprise.
The water, taken immediately from the celebrated
"Cold Spring," Is unsurpassed as regards coldness and
purity, by any In the United States. The honse, recently
erected at a cost of about seven thousand dollars, has be?-n
fitted up in a neat and elegant style, at considerable ex
tra expense, and is sufficiently capacious to accommodate
seventy-five patients.
Connected with the establishment, and constituting one
of Its attractions, are the fixtures and conveniences for in
Inooent and healthful gymnastic exercises.
The Institution is under the general supervision of 8.

An enlightened public sentiment has everywhere repu
diated a reckless use of drugs in the treatment of disease;
while Intolerable sufferings and broken constitutions have
imperatively demanded "Reform." A return from a wide
and fatal departure from the simplicity of Nature a laws
Is called for, alike by a rational love of happiness and the
deplorable exigencies of our condition. Hydropathy, or a
scientific, use of water as ? 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 cauterising, which. In obtaining the
mastery over disease, too frequently places the patient bo
vond the reach of further annoyance. The success of the
various Water Cure establishments In this country, to say
nothing of any other, has fully confirmed the hopes of the
early dMroverers and promulgators of the great truths
upon which the system Is founded, and renders verbal
communications unnecessary. It Is deemed sufficient to
say. that the " Old Spring Water Cure " will compare fa
vorably with any Of tlie well-conducted establishments ot
a similar character, a?d will bo found equal to the best,

as above, they can he supplied at the establishment by
paying fifty cent* a week.
