PROSPECTUS OF THE "NATIONAL MON
UMENT,"
A. weekly journal to be published in Washington,
under (he sanction of the Washington National
Monument Soc'ety.
JAMES C. PICKETT, Editoe a:?> PunusnEn..
Tt .o Monument is intende d to be a literary, agricultural,
and miscellaneous paper. It will contain selections of tho
literature of the day?thobost that can bo found in Arncri
eatiaud English publications: interesting scientific articles,
cmbracin?f mechanics; foreign and domestic news; a sy
nopsis of the proceedings of Congress, and every thing
that such a journal mi rlit be expected to contain, with
tl'e exception of party politics, which will be at all times
igost rigorously excluded.
Tim it.,, "li^ent will be published for the express and
the- mil, tu,r> >se of in the erection of the noble
on the banks of the Potomac, in hon
nr nt th? of his Country, and which every one
?wJvSLitt. fh? ? ? of Washington would rejoice to

By subscribing to the Monument, ? ?>e doing some
low prioe n:r* he obtained, whilo it vrtf) < 'hat majestic
tiling, at the sjuu.- t?me, towards completing ?
memorial of the Nation's gratitude. rormer
The Board of Managers recommend Mr, ptckcct. . irg
ly Fourth Auditor of the Treasury and Charge iPAH** nt
l'oru, who proposes to edit and publish the Momwu. .
journal, as one well qualified to perform the duties f??
editor, and to conduct the paper faithfully, and satisfac
torily to the subscribers. They assure their fellow-citizeus
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, ho
fe<>eive nothing more, and he asks nothing mo re,
than a very moderate compensation tor his services. Not
one dollar, therefore, of the direct subscription to tho
erection of the Monument will be, in uny event, applied
to the support of the paper, nor th# Society In any man
nur held pecuniarily responsible.
To give tho public an idea of what may bo 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 aa annual net profit of from fifty to siity
thousand dollars.
The postmasters, and secretaries of all organized bodies
throughout the Union, are respectfully requested to act
as agents iu obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the great
oltfect 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 hop<*d that they will con
tribute to Its succ'- is by publishing this prospectus.
All moneys will be remitted, and all letters and moneys
addressed prepaid, to the general agent of the Monument
8ociety, Hon. Elisha Wldttlesey, Washington.

Newark Academy.
By a late re-orgntiUation of this department of Dela
ware Coll. ge, tho Hoard of Trustees hove 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 Academy, heretofore merged
In the College, and of course subjected to all the evils
whleh have been (band to attend the amalgamation of the
two departments in the same building, and under the
same government, now enjoys the privilege of a separate
establishment, withont losing those which result from its
relation to the College proper.
A large and elegant edifice, with all the necessary fix
tures af a complete boarding establishment, has been
ei*oted 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 Its own. uninterrupted by the interests or
operations of the other department. The furniture of the
stndy-moms and dormitories has been chosen with jx-cu
llar rcfrrenoe to comfbrt 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 priraJf study and
comfortable accommodation of students, fully equal to
those afforded by many of our college*
From Its intimate relation to the College, students of
the Academy enjoy many advantages not generally ob
tained at Institutions of this kind. Those who wish to
pursue some particular branch which falls more properly
within the College course, may he admitted to recite in
any of the College classes. Students also of proper age
and discretion, by recommendation of the Principal, and
permission of the Faculty, may enjoy the use of the Col
lege Library without additional charge. Admission also
may be had to the lectures, and such other privileges of
the College as ean be profitably enjoyed by academical
students.
The charge for Boarding, Washing, Fuel, Mght, Ac.,
with tuition in the English, Latin, and Oroek, is seventy
dollars Ibr the Summer Session, and seventy-five for the
Winter Session. The only extras are one dollar per ses
sion tor incidental expenses, and a fre of eight dollars for
Modern Languages, and a fee of five dollars for Drawing,
from those who enter these elasses. The sessions and va
cations of the Preparatory Department are the sams as
those of the College.

1TOR BOYS.?This institution U eituated in
on* ?f the healthiest parts of the elty of Wilmington, ?n
drely beyond Lhu settled portions of the town. The uni
loroi he&lthfuluoM ol the locution may be Inferred from
the bet that, siuoe the establishment of the School, about
tw9nty-eight years, very lew cases of serious indisposition
have occurred among the pupil*, and uot a niugle death
either here, or from disetwR.;! contracted while here.
The oourse of instruction includes, bepide* thu ordinary
English broncho.- , Natural Philosophy, Chemistry, Pbysi
ology, History, Khetoric, the various brauches of Mathe
matics, and the Latin, Uxeek, and French 1-auguu^tH. Par
ticular attention in paid to the higher Mathematics and
tbeir application to Mechanics and J-iiKiuoeriug; the latter
and Surveying are taught practically by Held operations,
with the use of appropriate instruments. Lectures on
Natural i'hiloeophy and Chemistry, in wliich all the im
portant principles are illustrated by experiments, are
regularly delivered before the student*.
Ah the olfject in to make the Instruction as thorough
and practical as iiossible, no expense litis been spared in
providing suitable apparatus. It is believed that, In this
respect, the Institution will compare favorably with 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 lor
practical instruction in Chemic.d Manipulation.
The school year commenced on the third Second-day
(Monday) of the Ninth month, (September,) aud U divided
into four quarters of eleven weeks each, leaving a vacation
01 two months, from about the middle of the Seventh
month (July). SAMUEL ALSOi',

MORE HOME EVIDENCE. ~~
milK TESTIMONY OK o\.'K OF OUR LAWYERS.?
L Mr. J AS. L. HAMILTON?Dear Sir: Although the
number and respectability of the testimonials of which
you sre already in possession, as to the efficacy of your
Medicine, "THE UREAT VA. REMEDY," in the diseases
which it is designed to cure, are sufficient, in my opinion,
to establish its reputation, and secure for it such patronage
as will adequately reward you for the discovery of so ines
timable a Medicine?yet the great benefit which I have
derived from its use, and the salutary clfects which I have
witnessed from its employment in the cases ol' several
friends, to whom I had recommended it, constrain me to
ormtributc, for such use us you may think proper to make
of 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
destrui tion of the digestive functions, great debility, ner
vousness, emaciation, and impaired appetite, with pain,
and a burning sensation in the leit 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 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 Sore Throat, in all of which it proved
efficacious, 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
reanimation to the whole system.
Very respectfully, yours, Ac,,

\V ith thin Key to their contents, the English Common

our Courts of I aw; and being thus made easily and in
stantly accessible, these Reports will be found so compre
hensive, convenient, and cliunp, as to supersede the neceiu

Messrs. T. k 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 Kxclioi|uer Reports. In my jMpMH thflf are no*
excelled by any ooteinprniiicous Reports, in learning,
ability, or general utility and interest. The cases derided
are discussed with great care, and expounded with uncom
mon force. I scarcely know of any volumes which I deem
of more importance or value for a Professional Library.
JOSEPH STORY.
Cakbudoi, January 25, 1845.
Gentlemen: Your letter of the 21th has been received,
In which you ask my opinion as t?> the value of the Eng
lish Exchequer Reports, from Price downwards to tills
time, to an American Lawyer, and as to the expediency of
reprinting them In this country. Of the kip value of
the?e Iteports, both on the Pleas and Equity sides of the
Court, I have not the least doubt?the derisions of this
Court for the last fifteen or twenty years, both at Equltv
and In Common Law, being en titled to equal respect with I
any others iu England. I should think an American
Lawyer's library essentially Incomplete v. ithout thorn.
I am, gentlemen, very tvs?e?'tftilly yours,

Abulami, 20th July, 1840.
Dear Sir: I wish to express to you the gratification I
derived on receiving the July number of the Merchants'
Magazine and Commercial Keview, from viewing your
portrait in the beginning, aud irt^n reading jour add rem
to your friends at the end of it. hen we feel under ob
ligations to those who have contributed to our in lor in a
tlon ond amupemeut, we are nuturally desirous to po*R*SS
all the knowledge of them, of their appearance, of the fea
tures of their countenance, aud of the character and hab
its of their mind, which we can ncquirc. You have placed
your numerous readers (at least you have me, ii 1 may
not speak for them) under those obligations; and the
uumber of your valuable work now before me, in some
degree, satisfies the desire to which 1 have alluded.
I have become quite familiar with the Magazine and
Review, and have no hesitation in expressing my humble
opinion that it is eminently entitled to the pullic regard

amount of valuable statistical and other inl'oiuialion,
highly useful not only to the merchant, but to the states
man, to the cultivator of the earth, to the manufacturer,
to the mariner, in short, to all classes or the business and
reading community.
Entertaining this opinion, I am glad thatit has been,and
hope that it may continue to be, liberally patronised.
Offering you cordial assurances of my esteem aud re

Ha.tract of a letter from Hon. Millard Fill mure.
,lI have read it (Merchants' Magazine) with a gcod
deal of attention, and have no hesitation in saying that 1
think it one of the most valuable periodicals that was
ever publlhhed. To the merchant it seems quite indis
pensable, and to the statesman aud man of general infor
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. I only regret that I do not own the whole work."
Litter from the Hon. Thomas H. Benton.
Washington Citv, April 20,1849.
Mr. Freeman Tlunt.?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 merchant*' 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 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 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
are charg<*l with managing the affidrs 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 many years of
arefully consulting it.
Very respectfully, sir, your obedient servant,
THOMAS II. BENTON.
Letter from Hon. Wtn. II. Siward.
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 extending country, but the fiscal and commercial
juestions involved in the administration of the govern
ment.
1 am, with great respoct, yonr humble servant,
Freeman Hunt, esq. WILLIAM II. SKWAKD.

of a first class l'l&no, one that lading can perform on
with the greatest possible advantage?one that the touch

{rating, that is chaste of style and ehgantly made up o!
straight and regular curve lines, that will last an apt?to

Factory, and liberal patronage of citizens and others of
the first order of artistic taste and science, conceded at
once the most critical, have lieen fully anticipafed. Their
recently finished Grand Piano, minutely reviewed by the
tnost accomplished civil engineers aud master artists, has

surpassed, if equalled, in the world. Friends and cus

COLI) SPRING WATER CURE.
'plIIS NEW AND SPLENDID ESTABLISHMENT for
| the scientific treatment of the various diseases with
which the human system is afflicted, is situated about
three miles from the city of Buffalo, in a rural spot, and
so accessible from all points as to be reached without in
convenience or delay.
A line of omnibuses runs from the steamboat landing*
in Buffalo to the springs every ten minutes.
The house and ground* are near the extensive and
beautiful green-houses and nurseries of the Messrs. Hodges
A Bryants; and the scenery In all directions is unsur
passed, as regard* either variety or beauty; embracing
points of view, from which may lie taken In at a glance
the broad expanse of Lake Erie, the Niagara flowing ma
jestically toward." the Falls, extensive forests, and the
"Queen City of the takes," with its moving panorama of
steamboats and oeaseless enterprise.
The water, taken Immediately from the celebrated
"Cold Spring," is unsurpassed as regard* coldness and
purity, by auy in the United States. The house, recently
erected ut a cost of about seven thousand dollars, haslieen
fitted up in a neat and elegant style, at considerable ex
tra expense, and is sufficiently capacious to accommodate
uiventy-fivc patients.
Connected with the establishment, and constituting one
of its attractions, are the fixtures and conveniences for in
nocent and healthful gymnastic exercises.
MEDICAL DEPARTMENT.
The Institution la under the general supervision of P.
VI. Davis, M. D., Professor of the Theory and 1'metice of
Medicine in Central Medical College, and Geo. W. l>avis,
M. D., formerly of Dansville, N. Y., the resilient physician,
and is permanently associated with the before mentioned
gentleman as counsel, and associate of the medical l<?nl
of control. And the Mcuds of the establishment deem it
a matter of felicitation that the services of Miss Mary M.
Taylor, a liuly of high medical attainments, who has at
tended two courses of lectures in the Central Medical Col
lege, hare been secured, and that female patients can at
any time avail themselves of her invaluable aid and coun
,el.
The steward's department Is under the control of a gen
tleman eminently qualified ft>r that potdtlon; and unwea
ried pains will be taken to have every thing appertaining
to the establishment arranged on a plan, snd conducted
in a way, to ensure the comfort, and promote the hralth
and happiness of all who may wish to avail themselves of
its benefits. Baths of all descriptions, adapted to the cure
of the various fbrms 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 dlfesse;
while Intolerable suffering* and broken constitutions have
imperatively demanded "Reform." A return from * wide
and fatal departure from the simplicity of Nature s laws
is called for, alike by a rational love of happiness and ttie
deplorable exigencies of our condition. Hydropathy, or a
scientific use of water as a restorative and curative "Ren,
is a practical substitution of a simple and remarkably em
