PICKETT, Editor wd Publisher. Tho Monument is intended to be a literary, agricultural, and miscellaneous paper. It will contain selections of Jie literature of the day ?the best Oilcan be found In Amort can and English publications: interesting scientific articles, embracing mechanics; foreign and domestic news; asy liopsls of the proceedings of Congress, and every thing that such a journal might be expected to contain, with the exception of party politics, wluch will be at all times most rigorously excluded. The Monument will be published fur tho express and the sole purpose of aiding lu the ereotlon of the noble column now rising on tho banks of the Potomac, in hon or of the Father of his Country, and which every one who venerates the name of Wabhisoton would rejoice to see completed. After deducting out of the subscription tho expenses of the journal proposed to be published, tho remaining funds will be faithfully appliud, aud with out reserve, to the purpose indicated. The aid, therefore, of all who are 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 nricc Pi ay be obtained, while jt will be doing some thing. at the Bame time, towards completing that majestic memorial of the Nation's gratitude. p, . .. f rmer. 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 Monumen journal, as one well qualified to perforin the duties of editor, and to conduct 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 "lament with his own means and at his own risk; if successful, h ?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 ^b, support of the paper, nor the Society in any man neTobgivePtho public ?Tidea of what may b*dorie with the journal it is proposed to publish, it may be^ Stated that a list of tifty thousand paying subscribers, at two dollars each, will yield an annual net profit of from fifty to sixty '^ThtTpostmasters, and secretaries of all organized bodi^ throughout the Union, are respectfully requested to act us agents In obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the great object of our exertions. . ? . As all editors aud publishers, on account of the o^ect for which the Monument newspaper will be esti^ltshed, liiujt wish It to succeed, It is hoped that tliej will con tribute to Its success by publishing *kls Prospectus. All moneys will l>e remitted, and all letters and moneys addressed prepaid, to the gcnoral agent of thu Monument Society, lion. Elisha Whittlesey, Washington.

The course of instruction Includes, beside* the ordinary English branches, Natural Philosophy, Chemistry, Physi ology, History, Rhetoric, the various brauchus of Mathe matics, and the I.atin, Greek, and French languages. Par ticular attention is paid to the higher Mathematics und their application to Mechanics and Engiutsoring; the latter and Surveying are taught practically by held operations with the use of appropriate instruments. Lectures on Natural l'hllosophy aud Chemistry, in which all the U|> portant principles are illustrated by experiments, art regularly delivered before the students. As the ohjuot is to make the instruction as thorough aud practical as possible, no expense hus been spared in proviiiing suitable apparatus. It 1* believed that, in tlii* respect, the Institution will compare favorably willi 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 Science, furnishes ample reading matter; while a laboratory, fully supplied with apparatus and tests, contains all that is necessary for practical Instruction in Chemical Manipulation.

March 14,1861. / IT being desirable to substitute locks and keys of some other kind for those now in use for the mail servic. of the United States, specimen locks and keys, with pro posals to furnish the same, will lie 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 (V>r examination and report. Upon this report, eon tracts will, as soon as practicable, be entered Into for fur nishing such locks and keys for four years, with the right on the |>art of the Postmaster General, for the time being to extend and continue the contract in force for an addi tional term of four years, by giving to the contractor ii written notice to that effect, not more than nine nor loss thnn six months beforo the termination of the 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 oil the mechanical skill mid Ingenuity which a fair competition, now invited, may develop. It I*, however, proper to state that a lock suit able for the mail servioe should prowess the following qual ities. viz; durability, uniformity, lightness, and strength. For the purpose of displacing simultaneously all the iiail 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 slinll 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 service; hut It will probably never ex ceiil in amount three thousand of the former and one thousand of the latter. No lock will bo considered If It ho like any already in general use; nor will anyone with whom the contract may be made lie allowed to mske, sell, or furnish, any lock or key similar to those contracted for for any other purpose or use than that of the Post < Ifflce Department. The kind of lock adopted must be patented, and the pa tently will hi; required, on entering Into contract, to make an assignment of his patent for the exclusive use and lien eflt of the Department, if the Postmaster Oeneral shal' deem such requirement essential to the Interests of the service. In case of the failure of the contractor st any time to fulfil faithfully tho terms and conditions of his contract, the Postmaster General shall have tho right, besides a resort to the penal remedy hereinafter men tioned, to annul said contract, and to oontract 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 mails the lock of one bidder, and for the way malls that of another. He reserves, therefore, the right of contracting with different individuals for such different kinds of locks as he may select, and also th< right to r<ijoct all the specimens and proposals. If ho shall deem that course for the interest of the Department. The party or parties contracting will be requin-d to give liond, with ample security, In the sum of thirty thousand dol lars, for a faithful performance of the contract. Theoin 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 hands; the terms of these provisions to be arranged between the Department and the successful bidder, if a bid should bo accepted. No application will be considered if not accompanied with satisfactory evidence of the trustworthy character of tho bidder, and of bis ability to fulfil the contract. N. K. IIALL. mar 24?

But it is not the great merchant only, but the one of more inodest, 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 ;ire charged with managing the affairs of the nation, l or myself, 1 have found it most useful to me in my senato rial labors, and have been in the habit for many years of carefully consulting it.

A line of omnibuses runs from the steamboat landing* in Buffalo to the springs every ten minutes. The house and grounds are near the extensive and beautiful green-houses and nurseries of the Messrs. Hodges .% Bryants; and the scenery In all ditections is unsur passed, as regards either variety or beauty; embracing points of view, from which may be taken in at a glance the broad expanse of Lake Erie, the Niagara flowing mi | jestically towards the Falls, extensive forests, and the Queen City of the !<akes," with Its moving panorama of steamboats and ceaseless enterprise. The water, taken immediately from the celebrated ' Cokl Spring," is unsurpassed as regards coldness and purity, by any in the United States. The house, recently erected at a cost of about neven thousand dollars. I ns been 'itted 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 convenience* for in nocent and healthful gymnastic exercises. MEDICAL DEPARTMENT. The Institution is under the general supervision of S. M. Davis, M. D., Professor of the Theory and Prac tice of Medidno in Central Medical College, and Geo. W. Lav is, M. 1>., formerly of Dansville, N. Y., the resident physician, ami i permanently associated with the before mentioned gentleman as counsel, and nssoclaHrof the mcdlcal board of control. And the friends of the establishment deem it a matter of felicitation that the services of Miss Mary M. Taylor, a lady of high medical attainments, who has at tended two courses of lectnres in the Central Medical Col lege, haTe been secured, and that female patients ran at any time avail themselves of her Invaluable aid and coun sel. The steward's department Is under the control of a gen tleman eminently qualified for that position; and nnwea ried pains will be tnken to have every thing appertaining to the establishment arranged on a plan, ami conducted In a way, to ensure the comfort, snd promote the health and happiness of all who may wish to avail themselves of Its benefits. Haths of all descriptions, adapted to the cure of the various forms of disease, and constructed on a scale not Inferior to those of any other establishment In this country. An enlightened public sentiment has everywhere repu diated a reckless use of drugs In the treatment of disease ; while Intolerable sufferings and broken constitutions hare imperatively demanded "Reform." A return from a wide ami fatal departure from the simplicity of Nature's laws Is called for, alike by a rational love of happiness snd 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 place* the patient be yond 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 discoverers and promulgators of the great truths upon which the system is founded, and renders verbal communications unnecessary. It is deemed sufficient to ssy, that the "Cold Spring Water Cure" will compare fa vorably with any of the well-conducted establishments ot a similar character, and will he found equal to the liest, as regards the order, convenience, and desirableness of Its arrangements. The institution Is now open for the recep tion of patients, and in full operation. TSAH8.
