PR^PBCTUS OF TUG "NATIONAL MON
UMENT,"
A weekly journal to be published in Washington,
under the sanction of UiC Washington National
Monument Society.
jAMISS C. PICKUTT, Editor and Publisher.
Tl.e Mouuiueut Is Intended to be a literary , agricultural,
and miscellaneous paper. It will contain wlectloiu, of the
literature ot Die day -t he best that can be found ta Amrt
cau m l .iugiish publications: Interesting scientific articles,
embracing roocliauics; foreign aud domestic uews, a y
n .psls of the proceedings of Congress, and every thinp
that such a journal might be expected to contojn, with
the exception of party politics, wluch will be at all timet
publl.M for IU. ?r?I MjJ
the sole purpose of aiding in the erection of the. nobli
col unto now rising on the banks of the Potomac,
or of the Father or his Country, and which every oni.
who venerates the name of W.vsniKOTOJJ would rejoice to
see completed. After deducting out of the subscription
the exiieuses of the journal proposed to be publlstied.
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 0-y
joat, aud one so entirely national, la earnestly requested.
11 v subscribing to the Monument, a valuable journal at a
low urice may lie obtained, while It will be doing somfr
tiling, at the Niune time, towards completing that inujestic
wem Il ia) of the Natiou's gratitude.
I'he Board of Managers recommend Mr. Pickett former
ly Fourth Yuilltor ol the Treasury and Charge d Affairs U)
l'eru, who proposes to edit and publish the(Monument
? journal, as one well qualified to perform the duties ol
editor, and to conduct the pajier faithfully, and sntisfnc
torilv to the subscriliers. They assure their fellow-citiiens
that this enterprise is not a simulation got up for indi
vidual emolument. Mr. l'lckettwlU tuakethe experiment
with his o.Tn means and at his own risk; if successful, he
will receive nothing more, and he asks nothing moiv,
than a very moderate compensation for his services. Not
one dollar, therefore, of the direct subscription to the
crectionofthe Monument will lie, in any event, applied
to tlie support of the paper, nor the Society in any man
ner Uelil pecuniarily responsible. ^
To iriTt1 the public uu idea ot what may he done with ton
journal it in proposed to pubUth, it may be stated that a
list of fifty thousand paying subscribers, at two dollarM
e.u'b, will yield an annual net profit of from tifty to sixty
thousaud dollars.
The postmasters, and secretaries or all organized bodies
throughout the Union, are respectfully requested to act
as awaits in obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the great
uliji'ct of our exertions.
As all editors aud publishers, on account of the object
for which tlie Monumeut newspaper will be established,
must wish it to succeed, It Is hoped that they will con
tribute to its success by publishing this prospectus.
AU moneys will lie reiulttol, and all letters and moneys
addressed prepaid, to the Reneral agent of the Monument

Mr. JA.S. L. 11AMILT0N?Dkak Sib: Although the

you are already in possession, as to the efficacy of your
Medicine, "TUE GREAT VA. REMEDY," in the diseases
which it in designed to cure, are Bufllclent, in my opinion,
to establish its reputation, and secure for it such patronage
j us will adequately reward you for the discovery of so iues
I timable a Medicine?yet the greut benefit which I have
derived from its use, and the salutary effects which I have
j witnessed from its employment in the oases 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, tliis formal acknowledgment of its sanitary virtues.
My own ease was Dyspepsia of long duration, and very
| aggravated in its character, manifested by an almost total
' destruction oftbe digestive functions, great debility, ner
vousness, emaciation, and Impaired appetlta, with pain,
and a burning sensation in the left side of the chest, palpi
tation of tiie heart, vertigo and 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,
in which your Medicine was taken, were Dyspepsia, Chro
nic llcadache, and Sore Throat, in all of which it proved
efficacious, after the trial of a vast number of other reme
dies without lieneflt. 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
reanimation to the whole system.

English Common Law Reports,
68 Volumes, with, a complete Index to the firtt 47 folvmet.

commenced binding each English volume separately, in

The reputation which these Reports maintain in Eng
land and in the United States is known to all the Profes
sion. The low price at which they are offered, compared
with the rates of some of the principal American Reports,
of even inferior merit, recommends them particularly to
the attention of those purchasing Libraries.

Law Reports present to the Profession a mass of legal
learning in the shape of Opinions, Data, elaborate Argu- |

and Prosecution or Defence of any case that can arise in
our Courts of Law; and being thus msde easily and In
stantly accessible, these Reports will be found so compre
hensive, convenient, and cheap, as to supersede the neces
sity of other or more expensive scales.
The Index will be found of great value to all possessing
the Reports; and of gTeat convenience to those having

Messrs. T. A J. W. Johnson:
Gentlemen?In reply to your letter, I can with great |
sincerity say, that I entertain a veryhigh opinion of the i
recent Exchequer Reports. In my judgment tliey are not
excelUd by any cotemporancous Reports, in learning, I
ability, or general utility and Interest. The cases decide I j
are discussed with great care, and expounded with unrom |
mon force. I scarcely know of any volumes which I deem
of more importance or value for a Professional library.
JOSEPH STORY, j
CAMDRtner, January 26, 1845. |
Gentlemen: Your letter of the 24th has been received,
in which you ask my opinion as to the value of the Eng
lish Exchequer Reports, from Price downwards to this
time, to an American Lawyer, and as to the expediency of
reprinting them in this country. Of the high value of
these Reports, both on the Pleas and Equity sides of tiiw
Court, I have not the least doubt?the decisions of this
Court for the last fifteen or twenty years, both at Equity I
and in Common l.aw, lielng entitled to equal respect with !
any others In England. I Mould think an American 1
Lawyer's Library essentially incomplete without them.
I am, gentlemen, very respectfully yours,

all the knowledge of them, of tlieir h)[ earance, ol the fea

it* of their mind, whii h we can acquire. You have plat ed
your numcniiu readers (at least you have uie, if I may
not speuk for them) under thoi-o Obligations; and the
number of your valuable work now lieiore uie, in seme
degree, satisfies the desire to which I have alluded.
I have become quite ti.miliar with the Magazine and
lievlew, and have uo hesitation in expressing my humble
opinion that it 1* eniiuently entitled to the public ngeid
aud support. It collects ami arranges, In good order, a laige
i.mount of valuable statistical and other information,
highly useful not ouly to the merchant, buWo the statcs
tuan, to the cultivator of the earth, to the munufuciuicr,
to the mariner, In abort, to all classes of the business and

"J luivo read it (Merchant*' Magazine) with ii good
deal of attention, and have no hesitation In Having thai I
think it one of the most valuable periodicals that wm
over published. To the merchant it seem* quite indis
pensable, and to the statesman and man of general infor
mation almost equally desirable. It is u grand repository
of useful facta aud information, which can be found no
where so well digested and mo accessible a* In these mini
here. I only regret that I do not own the whole work."

Mr. Freeman Hunt.?Sir: I owe you many thunks for
the opportunities I have had to rend the Merchant*' Sing
aiine, and have found it in reulity to be a and
that well replenished, of all the useful matter which the
title would imply, and preseuted with a fullness und
clearness which delight* while it instructs. It is, in fact,
a me/rthantt' magazine in the large acceptation of tho
term?merchant* who go between nations, whose huge
operations bring many departments of know ledge, am! a
view of the state of the world, into daily requisition, l.ut
it i* not the great merchant only, hut the one of more
modest, but, nevertheless, of most useful operations?the
merchant of the interior also?w ho 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 i* its utility at all confined to merchants,but
extends to the legislator and diplomatist, and to all who
arc charged with managing the affairs of the nation. For
myself, 1 havo found it most useful to me in my senato
rial labors, and have lieen in the habit for many years of
carefully consulting it.
Very respectfully, sir, your obedient servant,
THOMAS II. BENTON.

COLD SI'IU N < J WATER CURB.
rilHlS NEW AND SPLENDID EST.UJUSHMENT for
1 the scientific treatment of the various diseases with
which the human system is afflicted, is situated atiout
three miles from the city of Buffalo, In a rural spot, and
so accessible from all joints as to be reached without in
convenience or delay.
A I hie of omnibuHes runs from the steamboat landing*
in Buffalo to the springs every ten minutes.
The house and grounds are near the extensive end
beautiful green-houses and nurseries of Hie Messrs. Hodge*
* Bryants; ami the scenery in all directions is unsur
passed, a.' regard* either variety or lieauty; embracing
point* of view, from which may tie taken in at a gianco
the broad expanse of Lake Erie, the Niagara (lowing ma
jestically towards the Kails, extensive forest*, and the
"Queen City of the bakes," with its moving panorama of
steamboats and consoles* enterprise.
The water, taken Immediately from the celebrated
"Cold Spring," Is nnsurpassed a* regard* coldness and
purity, by auy In the United States. The house, recently
erected at a cost of about seven thousand dollars, has been
fitted up in a neat and elegant style, at considerable ex
tra expense, and is sufficiently capacious to accommodate
seventy-Hire patients.
Connected with the establishment, and constituting one
of its attractions, are the fixtures and conveniences for In
nocent aud healthful gymna-stlc exercises.
MEDICAL DEPARTMENT.
The Institution Is under the general supervision of 8.
M. Ilavis, M. I)., Pmfnssor of the Theory and 1 *rartice of
Medicine In Central Medical College, and Geo. W. In.vis,
M. D., formerly of Ilansville, N. \ ., tho resident physu ian,
und is permanently associated with the I*fore mentioned
gentleman as counsel, and associate of the medical loird
of control. And the friends of Uie establish mer.t deem It
a matter of felicitation that the services of Miss .Mary M.
Taylor, a lady of high medical attainments, who has at
tendod two courses of lectures In the Central Medical Col
lege, have l>een secured, and that female patients can 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 )>o*1tion; and unwea
rled pains will Iw taken to hsVe every thing appertaining
to the establishment arranged on a plan, and conducted
In a way, to ensure the comfort, and promote the health
and happiness of all who may wish to avail themselves of
Its lienefit*. Baths of all descriptions, adapted to the cure
of the various forms of disease, and constructed on a st ale
not inferior to those of any other establishment in this
country.
An enlightened public sentiment ha* 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's lews
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 a re; ionitlve and curativa agent,
Is a practical substitution of a simple and remsrkably effi
cacious mode of curing the ah k : for that system ,,f drug
ging, depleting, and cauterizing, which, in obtaining the
mastery ovor disease, too frequently places the patient be
yond the reach of further annoyance. The success of the
various Water Cure establishment* In this country, to say
nothing of any other, ha* 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
say, that the "Cold Soring Water Cure" will compare fa
vorably with any of the wall-conducted establishments of
a similar character, and will be found equal to tho best,
?s regards the order, convenience, and desirableness of Its
arrangements. The institution Is now open for the recep
tion of patient*, and in full operation.
