PROSPECTUS OF THE "NATIONAL MON
A weekly journal to be published in Washington,
under the sanction of the Washington National
JAMBS C. PICKETT, Editor and Pcblmhir.
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 scientific articles,
embracing mechanics; foreign and domestic news; a sy
nopsis of the proceedings of Congress, and every thiag
that such a journal might be expected to contain, with
the exception of party politics, which will be at ail time*
most rigorously excluded.
The Monument will be published for the express and
the sole purpose of aiding lu the erection of the noble
column bow rising on the banks of the Potomac, in hon
or of the Father of his Country, and which every one
who venerates the name of Washington would rejoice to
md completed. After deducting out of the subscription
the expenses of the Journal proposed to ho published,
the remaining funds will be faithfully applied, and with
out reserve, to the purpose indicated. The aid, therefore,
of all who are willing to contribute to so patriotic an ob
joot, 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 bo doing some
thing, at the same time, towards completing that inajostic
memorial of the Nation's gratitude.
The Board of Managers recommend Mr. Pickett, former
ly Fourth Auditor of the Treasury and Charge d' Affairs to
Peru, who proposes to edit and publish the Monument
journal, as one well qualified to perform the duties ot
editor, and to eonduet the paper faithfully, and satisfac
torily to the subscribers. They assure their fellow-citizens
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 reoeive 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 hold pecuniarily responsible.
To give the public an idea of what may be done with 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
The postmasters, and secretaries of all organized bodies
throughout the Union, aro respectfully requested to act
as agents in obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the groat
olqect of our exertions.
As ail editors and publishers, on account of the object
for which the Monument newspaper wffl be established,
must wish it to succeed, It Is hoped that they will con
tribute to its success by publishing this prospectus.
All moneys will be remitted, and all letter* and moneys
addressed prepaid, to the general agent of the Monument
Society, Hon. Efisha Whittlesey, Washington.

and in quarto form, containing sixteen large paces, that
it May be mora easily preserved. The prioe will be two

number. The nature of the enterprise not admitting ot
any credit, none can be given.
Societies and clubs will be furnished with the Monument
on the following terms: 3 copies for $6; 5 copies, $8; 101

Those who are disposed to patronise the Moxuxhtt are
requested to forward their names to the General Agent,

to be circulated, aud for the agents to make returns. As
all rabecribers will be contributors to the Monument

By a late reorganisation of this department of Dela
ware College, the Board of Trustees have taken measures
to place It npon a new and Improved foundation, snd to
endow It w?th srtvsntages pssssasui by few similar insti
tutions in the country. The Acsdemy, heretofore merged
In the College, and of course SUtjMted to all the evils
which hav/s been found to attend the fimalgamattou of the
two departments In the same building, and under the
same government, now enjoys ths privilege of a separate
establishment, without losing those which result from lis
relation to the Collogc proper.
A large and elegant edifice, with all the necessary fix
tures of a complete boarding establishment, has been
erected and furnished, in which the students of the Acad
emy board, under the Immediate charge of the Principal
and his Assistants; and all Its exercises are conducted on
a system of ite own, uninterrupted by the interests or
operations of the other department. The furniture of the
study-rooms and dormitories has been chosen with pecu
liar reference to comfort and convenience for study; and
no expense has been spared In providing the apparatus
necessary to render the means of Instruction complete;
giving to Newark Academy facilities for private study and
comfortable wvwnniodallon of students, fully equal to
those afforded by many of oar colleges.
From Its Intimate relation to the College, si ndonts of
the Academy crOoy many advantages not generally oh
talned at institutions of this kind. Those who wish to
pursue some particular branch which falls more properly
within the College course, may be admitted to rfdte In
any of the College classes- Students also of proper age
and discretion, by recommendation of the Principal, and
Emission of the Faculty, may enjoy the use of the Col
js Library without additional charge. Admission also
may be hM to the Leetnres, snd such other privileges of
the College as ran be profitably enjoyed by academical

rpHE TESTIMONY OF ONE 6F OUR LAWYERS.?
X Mr. JAS. L. HAMILTON?Beab Sir: Although the
number and respectability of the testimonials of which
Su are already in possession, as to the efficacy of your
Hlitfine, "THK <JHKAT VA. REMKDY,"in the dineaaos
which it Is designed to cure, are sufficient, in my opinion,
to establish its reputation, and secure for it such patronage
aa will adequately reward you for the discovery of so ines
timable a Medicine?yet the great benefit which I havB
derived from its use, and the salutary effects which I have
witnessed from its employment in the cases of several
Mends, to whom I had recommended it, constrain me to
contribute, for such use aa.you may think proper to make
of it, this formal acknowledgment of its sanitary virtues.
My own case waa Dyspepsia or long duration, am) very
aggravated in its character, manifested by an almost total
destruction of the digestive functions, great ddbiiity, ner
vousness, emaciation, and impaired appetite, with pain,
and a burning sensation in the left side of the chest, palpi
tation of tte heart, vertigo and congestion in the head,
and many other symptoms indicative of the worst type of
the disease, by the use of three1 orfour bottles of your pre
paration, been entirely relieved. The cases of my friends,
in which your Medicine was taken, were Dyspepsia, Chro
nic Headache, and Soro Throat, in all of which it proved
Offieacious, 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
reanimatiou to the whole system.

Messrs. T. A J. W. Johnson:
Gentlemen?In reply to your letter, I can with great
sincerity say, that I entertain a very high opinion of the
recent Exchequer Reports. In my judgment they are not
excelled by any cotemporaneous Heports, in learning,
ability, or general utility and Interest. The cams decided
are discussud with great care, and expounded with uncom
mon force. I scarcely know of any volumes which 1 deem
of more importance or value for a Professional Library.

In which yon ask my opinion as to the value of the Eng

FURNISHING MAIL LOCKS AND KEYS.
Post Office Department,!
March 14,1861. J
IT being desirable to substitute locks and keys of some
other kind fbr those now in use for the mail service
of the United State*, specimen locks and keys, with pro
posals to furnish the same, will be received and considered
at the Post Office Department until the first day of July
next. The different locks will be submitted to a commis
sion fbr examination and report. Upon this report, con
tracts will, as soon as practicable, be entered into for fur
nishing such locks and keys fbr four years, with tho right
on the part of the Postmaster (lenerai, for the time being,
to extend and continue the contract In force fbr an addi
tional term of four years, by giving to the contractor a
written notiee to that effect, not more than nine nor loss
than six months before the termination of tho first term
of four years.
With a view of procuring the best lock at the lowest
price, no kind of lock is prescribed as a standard, the De
partment relying for a selection on the mechanical skill
and ingenuity which a fair competition, now invited, may
develop. It Is, however, proper to state that a lock suit
able fbr tbe mail servioe should posses* the following qual
ities, vie durability, uniformity, lightness, and strength.
For the purpose of displaciug simultaneously all the
mail locks snd keys now in use, about thirty thousand
new locks ami twenty thousand keysadapted thereto will be
required to be ftarnlshed by the contractor within seven
months after tlui contract shall have been 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 mail servioe; but it will probably never ex
ceed In amount three thousand of the former aud one
thousand of the latter.
No lock will be considered if it lie like any already In
general use; nor will any one with whom the contract
may lie made he allowed to make, sell, or furnish, any
lock or key similar to those contracted for for any other
purpose or use than that of tbe Post Office Department.
The kind of lock adopted must be patented, and the pa
tentee will be required, on entering into contract, to make
an assignment of his patent for the exclusive use and ben
efit of the Department, If the Postmaster (lenerai shall
deem such requirement essential to tha interests of the
service. In rasa of the failure of the contractor at any
time to fnlfll ftdthftilly the terms and conditions of his
contract, tho Postmaster General shall have the right,
liesldes a resort to the penal remedy hereinafter men
tioned, to annul said contract, and to contract anew with
any other party or parties as he may see fit, for furnL>hing
similar locks and keys.
In deciding upon the proposals and specimens oBered,
the PostmaMer (lenerai may deem it expedient to select
for the through mails the lock of one bidder, snd fbr the
way mails that of another. He reserves, therefore, the
right of contracting with different individuals for ?w4i
different kinds of locks as he may select, and also th<
right to reject all the specimens and proposals, If he shall
deem that course foT the interest of the department. The
party or parties contracting will be required to give Ixmd,
with ample security, in the sum of thirty thousand dol
lars, for a faithful performance of the contract. The con
tract Is to contain provisions for the doe and proper In
spection of tbe locks and keys, and also for guarding
against their passing Into Improper hands; the terms of
these provisions to he arranged between the Department
and the successful bidder, if a Wd should lie accepted.
No appliontioa will he considered If not accompanied
with satisfactory evidence of the trustworthy character of
the bidder, and of his ability to fulfil the contract.

Denr Mr: 1 wish to expreas to you the gratification I
derived on receiving the July number of the Merchant*'
Magazine and Commercial Review, from viewing your
portrait in the beginning, and from reading your addrss*
to your friends at the end of it. When we feel undei ob

all the knowledge of them, of their appearance, of the fea

your numerous reader* (at lea*t you have me, if 1 may
not speak for tlvem) under those obligation*; and the
number of your valuable work now before we, in some
degree, *ati*iie* the desire to which I have alluded.
I have become quite familiar With the Magazine ahd
Review, and have no hrutdtution In expressing my humble
opinion that it is eminently eutttled to the public regard
and support. It oollect* aud arranges, in good order, a large
amount of valuable statistical and other information,
highly useful not only to the merchant, but to the ?tales
man, to the cultivator of the earth, to the manufacturer,
to the mariner, in short, to all olaeso* of the business and
Entertaining this opinion, I am glad that it has been, and
ho)>e that it may continuu to be, liberally patronized.
Offering you cordial assurances pf my esteem and re

Extract of a Utter from Bon. Millard FCthnart.
"I have read it (Merchants' Magazine) with a good
ileal of attention, and have no hesitation in Baying that I
think it one of the most valuable periodicals that was
over published. To the merchant it seems quite indis
pensable, and to the statesman and man of general infor
mation almost equally desirable. It is a grand repository
of useful facts and information, which oan be found no
where so well digested and so accessible as in these num
bers. I only regret that 1 do not own the whole work."

Washington City, April 20,1840.
Mr. Freeman Hunt.?Sir: 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 merchants' magazine in the large acceptation of the
terpi?merchants who go between nations, whose large
operation* 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 ono 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 hi* 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, aud 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 have been in the habit for many year* of
carefully consulting it.
Very respoctfully, sir, your obedient servant,
THOMAS H. BENTON.
