A weekly journal to be published in Washington,
under the sanction of the Washington National
Monument Society.
' JAMES C. PICKETT, Editor and Publudu.
The Monument is intended to be a literary, agricultural,
and miscel Igneous paper. It will contain selections of the
literature of the day?tile best that can be found In Ameri
can atul English publications: interesting scientific articles,
embracing mechanics; foreign aud domestic news; a sy
nopsis of the proceedings of Congress, and every thing
that such a journal might be expected to contain, with
the exception of party politics, which will be at all times
most rigorously excluded.
The Monument will l>o published for the express and
the sole purpose of aiding in the erection of the uoble
column now rising on the bunks 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
sue oompletud. After deducting out of tho subscription
the expenses of the journal propos<?d to be published,
the remaining funds will he faithfully applied, 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 price may be obtained, while it will he doing some
thing, at the same time, towards completing that majestic
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 ol
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 thoexperimcut
with his own means and at his owu risk; if successful, he
will receive nothing more, and he asks nothing more,
than a very moderate couipeusution 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 tltc paper, nor the Society in any man
ner held pecuniarily responsible.
To give the public an idea of what may be done with the
journal it is proposed to publish, it may be slated that a
list of fifty thousand paying subscribers, at two dollars
each, will yield an aunual 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
a-> agents in obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the great
object of our exertions.
As all editors and publishers, on account of the object
for which the Monument newspaper will 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 lie remitted, and all letters and moneys
addressed prepaid, to the general agent of the Monument
Society, lion. Klisha Whittlesey, Washington.

tember 19, 1848.
ri^UK dlstlnguising merits of this Apparatus are?
| 1st. The astonishing rapidity of tho process, surpass
ing belief?hence the name.
2d. The Cream during the progress of freeiing becomes
charged with atmospheric air, by w.hicb it nearly double*
In bulk, and obtains that peculiar smoothness, lightness,
and delicacy of flavor, for which the Ice Cream of our
best Confectioners is so highly prixed.
3d. It does not require a tenth part of the labor that
the common Freuaer does.
4th. It does its work better, producing a better article,
In evory respect, than bv any other mode.
6th. There is a considerable saving in ioe, as the tub
needs no replenishing during the ojieration.
The annexed testimonial from the Proprietor of the
Eutaw Mouse will put to rest all doubt.
" Having witnessed the proees* of frneting Ioe Cream
In Austin's Magic Freezer, two quarts of Cream having

IT being desirable to substitute locks and keys of some
other kind for those now in use for the mail service
of the United States, specimen lock* 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 bo submitted to a commis
sion for examination and report. Upon this report, con
tracts will, as soon as practicable, tie entered into for flir
nishing such locks and keys for four years, with tho right
on the part 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 oontractor n
written notice to that effect, not more than nine nor h-ss
than six months before 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 Do
partment relying for a selection on the mcchanleal skill
and Ingenuity which a fair competition, now invited, may
develop. It Is, however, proper to state that a lock suit
thle for the mail service shonkl possess the following qual
ities, vii: durability, uniformity, lightneM. and strength.
For the pnrpose of displacing simultaneously all the
mall locks and keys now In use, about thirty thousand
new loci* and twenty thousand keys adapted thereto will he
required to be furnished by the contractor within seven
months after the 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 service; but it will probably never ex
ceed in amount three thousand of the former and one
lltousand of the latter.
No lock will be considered if it he like any already In
general use; nor will any one with whom the contract
?nay he 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 the Post < iffioe Department
The kind of lock adopted must be paten W, and the |>a
trntee will be required, on entering intocontract, to make
an assignment of his patent for the exclusive use and ben
efit of the Department, if the Postmaster General shall
deem such requirement essential to the Interest* of the
service. Incase of the failure of the contractor at any
time to fulfil faithfully the terms and conditions of his
oontrart, the Postmaster General shall have the right,
henlde* a resort to the penal remedy hereinafter men
tioned, to annul said contract, ami to contract anew with
any other party or parties as he may see fit, for tarnishing
similar locks and keys.
In deciding upon the proposals and specimens offered,
the Postmaster General may deem it expedient to seleet
for the through malls the lock of one bidder, and for the
way mails that of another, lie reserves, then-fore, the
right of contracting with different individuals for sueh
different kinds of locks as he may select, and also the
j right to reject all the specimens and proposals. If he shHll
' deem that course for the interest of the Department. Tin
party or j*rtinscontracting will bo required to give bond,
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 this 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 be accepted.
No application will be considered If not accompanied
with satisfactory evidence of the trustworthy character of |
the bidder, and of his ability to fulfil the contract.

all the knowledge of them, of their appearance, of the fea
tures of their countenance, atid of the character and hab
its of their mind, which we can acquire. You have placed
your numerous readers (at least you have me, it' 1 may
not speak for them) under those obligations; and the
number of your valuable work now )>efore me, iu Heme
degree, satisfies the desire to w hich 1 have alluded.
1 have become quite familiar with the Mayacine and
Keview, and have no hesitation iu expressing uiy humble
opinion that it is eminently entitled to the public regard
and support. It colli* ts and arranges, in good order, a large
amount of valuable statistical and other liil'uimation,
highly useful not ouly to the merchant, but U> the states
man, to the cultivator of the earth, to the manufacturer,
to tlie mariner, in short, to all classes of the business and
reading community.

hope that it may continue to be, liberally patronized.
Offering you cordial assurances of my esteem and re

"1 hnve read it (Men-bants' Magazine) with a good
deal of attention, and have uo hesitation in saying (hat I
think it oue of the most valuable periodicals that waa
ever 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
ut useful facts and information, which can be found no

Mr. Freeman Hunt.?Sir: I owe you many thanks for
the opportunities 1 have had to read the Merchants' Mag
azine, aud have found It In reality to be a magarint, and
tbat well replenished, of all the useful mutter 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
term?merchants who go between nations, whose large
operations bring many departments of knowledge, and a
view of the state of the world, into dally requisition. Hut
it is not the great merchaut only, but the oue of more
modest, but, nevertheless, of most useful operations?the
merchaut of the interior also?who w ill 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, aud have been in the habit for many years of
carefully consulting it.
Very respoctfully, sir, your obedient servant,
heller from Hon. Wro. H. Seward.
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 exteuding country, but the fiscal and commercial
questions involved in the administration of the govern
I ment.
I am, with great respect, your humble servant.
