PK08PJBCTUS OF THE "NATIONAL MON
UMENT,"
A weekly journal to be published in Washington,
under the sanction of the Washington National
Monument Society.
J AMES C. PICKETT, Editor axd Pubusiikr.
Tho Mouuuieutis intended to be a literary, agricultural,
and inl?oc!lau"ous paper. It will contain selections of the
literature of the (lay?the best thai can be found in Ameri
can and I'nglish publications: interesting scientific articles,
embracing meclnraics; foreign and domestic news; a sy
nopsis of tlio proceedings of Congress, and every tliiSg
that such a journal might be expocted to contain, with
the exception of party politics, Which will be at all times
rigorously excluded.
The Mou^wdnt will be published for the express and
the sole purpose of aiding in the erection of the noble
column now rising oii the banks of tho Potomac, in hon
or of the Father of his Country, and which every one
Who venerates the name of Washington would nyoice |o
see completed. After deducting out of the subscription
tli. expenses of the journal proposed to be published,
the remaining fund* 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
ject, aud one so entirely national, fg earnestly requested.
By subscribing to the Monument, a valuable journal at n
low price may be obtained, while it will be doing some
thing, at the same time, towards completing tliat majestic
memorial of the Nation's gratitude.
The Board of Managers recommcnd Mr. Pickett, former- (
ly Fourth Auditor of the Treasury aud Charge d'Affairs to
Peru, who proposes to edit and publish the Monument
journal, as one well qualified to jierform the duties ot
editor, and to conduct the paper faithfully, and satisfao
torily to the subscribers. They assure their fellow-cltiiens
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, th< refore, of the direct subscription to tho
erection of the Monument will be, In any event, applied
to the support ot the paper, nor the Society in any man
Ofer held pecuniarily responsible.
To give the public an idea of what may lie done with the
journal it is proposed to publish, It may be stated that n
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 bodVs
throughout the llniou, .ire respectfully requested to act
as agents in obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the greet
object of our exertions.
As all editors and publisher#, on account of the oljeet
for which the Monument newspaper will be established,
must wish it to succeed, It is hoped that tliey will con
tribute to tt? success by publishing this prospectus.
All moneys will be remit tod. and all letter* and moneys
addressed prepaid, to the general agent of the Monument
Society, lion. Klixha Whittlesey, Washington.
OrrictR*.?Millard Fillmore, ea-offlcio President; Arch.
Henderson, First Vice President; Walter Lenox, (Mayor
of Washington,) Second Vice President; Thos. Carbery,

Terau.?The MoXUMXXT will be printed on a double
royal sheet?the paper and type being of the beat quality?
and in quarto form, oontainiug sixteen large pages, that
It may be more easily preserved. The price will be two
dollars per annum, payable on the receipt of the second
number. The nature of the enterprise not admitting ot
any credit, none can be given.
Societies and clubs will be furnished with the Moxumeiit

itself, their names will be puhliahed in the paper.

By a late re-organlxstlon of this department of Dcla- j
wan College, the Bonrd of Trustees have taken measures ,
to place It upon a new and Improved foundation, and to
endow It with advantages possessed by few similar Insti- |
tutions in the country. The AcadjKnyJbc^^^rg^ ,
in the College, and of oourse subjected to all the evils
which have Wn found to attend the amalgamation of the
two departments In the same bulld og, and under the .
same government, now enjoys the privilege of a separate |
establishment, without losing those which result from its
relation to the College proper.
A large and elepint edifice, with all the necessary fix
tares .f a complete boarding establishment, has been
erected and furnished, in which the students of the Acad- |
emy board, undvr the Immediate charge of the Principal
and his Assistants; and all iU^xcrclses are conducted on |
a system of It* own, uninterrupted by the interests or j
operations of the other department. The furniture of the ?
study-rooms and dormitories has been chosen wi'b pecu- j
liar reference to comfort and convenience for study; and i
no expense has been spared In providing the apparatus
necesmry to render the mesns of instruction complete;
rivlnif to Newark Academy fscllitlcs for private study snd
comfortable accommodation of students, fully equal to
those afforded by many of our college*. .
From it* intimate relation to the College, students of
the Academy eiyoy many advantages not generally ob
tained at Institution* of this kind. Those who wish to
pursue some particular branch which Tails more properly
within the College course, may lie admitted to recite in
any of the College ela***?. Students also of proper age
and discretion, by recommendation of the Principal, and
permission of the Faculty, may enjoy the u? of the Col
lege Library without additional charge. Admission also
may be had to the lectures, and such other privileges of
the College as can be profitably enjoyed by academical

derived from its use, and the .salutary effect* which J have
witnessed from its employment in the cases of several
mends, to whom I had recommended it, constrain me to
contribute, for such use as you may think proper to make
ot it, this formal acknowledgment of its sanitary virtues.
My own case was Dyspepsia of long duration, and very
aggravated in its character, manifested by an almost total
destruction of the digestive functions, great debility, ner
vousness, emaciation, and impaired appetite, with pain
and a burning sensation in the left side of the chest, palpi
tation of the 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 bottlos of your pre
paration, been entirely relieved. The cases of my friends,
in which your Medicine was taken, were Dyspepsia, Chro
nic Headache, aud Sore Throat, in all of which it proved
efficacious, after the trial of a vast number of other reme
dies without bonelit. Your medicine is aR 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
reammation to the whole system.

FURNISHING MAIL LOCKS AND KEYS.
Post Office Ditartmlnt, \
March 14,1861. J
| T being desirable to substitute locks and keys of som.
I other kind for those now in use for the mail service
of the United States, specimen locks and keys, with pro
jH'sals 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 for examination and report. Upon this rc|K>rt, con
tracts will, as soon as practicable, be entered into for fur
nishlng such locks and keys for fouryoars, with the right
on the part of the Postmaster General, for the lime being,
to extend and continue the contract in force for an addi
tional term of fonr years, by giving to the contractor a
written notice to that effect, not more than nine nor less
than six months before the termination of the first term
of four yours.
With a view of procuring the best lock at the lowest
price, no kind of lock is prescribed as a standard, the Do
purtment relying fbr 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 for the mail service should possess the fallowing qual
itics. vi*: durability. uniformity, lightness, and strength
For the purpose of displacing simultaneously all the
mail locks and keys now in use, about thirty thousand
new lock* and twenty thousand keys adapted thereto will be
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
thousand of the latter.
No lock will he considered if it be like any already In
general use; nor will-any one with whom the contract
may be made be 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 Pout 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 l>cn
efit of the Department, if the Postmaster General shall
deem such requirement essential to the Interests of th<
service. In case of the failure of the contractor at any
time to fulfil faithfully the terms and conditions of his
contract, the Postmaster General shall have the right,
besides a resort to the penal remedy hereinafter men
tioned, to annul said contract, and to contract anew with
any other party or parties aa he may see fit, for furnishing
similar locka and keys.
In deciding uj>on the proposals and specimens offered,
the Postmaster General may deem it expedient to select
for the through malls the lock of one bidder, and for the
way mails 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 the
right to reject all the specimens and proposals, If he shall
derm that course for the interest of the Department. The
(Xirty or parties contracting will he reouired to give bond,
with ample security, In the sum of thirty thousand (toi
lers, for a faithful performance of the contract. The eon
tract is to contain provisions for the due and proper In
s|>ection of the locka 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 lie considered If not accompanied
with satisfactory evidence of the trustworthy character of
the bidder, and of his ability to fulfil the contract.

Dear Sir: I wlnh to expren* to you the gratification I
derived on receiving the July number of the Men-bant*1
Magazine and Commercial Review, lroln viewing your
portrait in the beginning, and troin reading your addura
to your friends at the end of It. "W hen we feel under ob
ligations to tlione who have contributed to our iuloima
tiun and aniUKSienl, we are naturally desirous to possess
all the knowledge of them, of their appearance, ot the lea
turea of their countenance, and of the character and hab
its of their mind, which we can acquire. You have placed
your numerous readers (at least you have me, if 1 uiay
not speak for them) under thorn obligations; and the
number of your valuable work now before me, In si me
degree, satisfies the desire to which 1 have alluded.
I have bccome quite familiar with the Magazine end
Review, and have no hesitation in expressing my humble
opinion that it Is eminently entitled to the public legnrd
and support. It collects and arranges, 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,

Extract of a Utter from Hon. Millard Pitlmorc.
"I have read it (Merchants' Magazine) with a good
deal of attention, and have no hesitation in saying that 1
think it one of the most viilunble periodicals thut was
ever published. To the merchant it seems quite indis
pensable. and to the statesman and man of general infer*
mation almost equally desirable. It is a grand repository
of useful facts and information, which can be found no
where so well digested and so accessible as in these num*
bers. 1 only regret that I do not own the whole work.1'
Letter from the Hon. Thomat H. lienlcn.
Washington Citt, April 20, 1849.
Mr. Freeman Hunt.?Sir: 1 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 mayueine, 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 merchantJ magazine In the large acceptation of the
term?merchants who go between nations, whose lerge
o|>erations briug 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 one of more
modest, but, nevertheless, of most useful operations?the
merchant of (tie interior also?who will find this magazine
to abound with the information the punaiit 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, aud to all who
are charged with managing the affairs of the nation. For
myself, 1 have found it most useful to me in my senato
rial labors, and have been In the habit for mauy years of
carefully consulting it.
Very respectfully, sir, your obedient servant,
THOMAS H. BENTON.
Letter from Hon. Wm. H. Seward.
My Dear Sir: Have the goodness to place my name on

questions involved in the administration of the govern
ment.
I am, with great respect, your humble servant.

COLD SPRING WATER CURE.
ri'HIS NEW AND SPLENDID ESTABLISHMENT for
1 the scientific treatment of the various diseases w Ith
which the human system is afflicted, is situated about
three miles from the city of Buffalo, In a rural snot, and
so accessible from all points as to be reached witliout in
convenience or delay.
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
l>eautiful green-bouses and nurseries of the Messrs. Hodges
k Bryants; and the scenery in all directions 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 l.ake Krie, the Niagara flowing ma
jestically towards the Falls, extensive forests, and the
"Queen City of the Ijakes," 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 house, recently
erected at a coat 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-five |>atient*.
Connected with the establishment, and constituting one
of its attractions, an- the fixtures and conveniences for in
nocent and healthful gymnastic exercises.
MEDICAL DEPARTMENT.
The Institution is under the general supervision of S.
M. Davis, M. I)., Professor of the Theory and Practice of
Medicine in Central Medical College, and Geo. W. Davis,
M. D., formerly of Dansville, N. Y.. the resident physician,
and Is permanently associated with the before mentioned
gentleman as counsel, and associate of the medical loard
of control. And the friends of Uie 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 lectures In the ( antral Medical Col
lege. have been secured, and that female patients can at
any time avail themselves of her invaluablo aid and coun
sel.
The steward's department is under the control of a pen
tleman eminently qualified for that position; aud un? ea
rled pains will lie taken to have every tiling appertaining
to tlic establishment arranged on a plan, and conducted
In a way, to ensure the comfort, end promote the health
and happiness of all who may wish to avail themselves of
its benefits. Baths 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 anlightencd public sentiment has everywhere repu
diate 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 laws
is called for, aJlke by a rational love of happiness and 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 places the patient lie
yond the reach of further annoyance. The success of the
various Water Cure establishments In this oountry. 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
say. that the " Cold Soring Water Cure" will compare fa
vorably with any of the well-conducted establishments ot
a similar character, and will be 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.
