A welch/ journal to be published in Washington,
under ihe sanction of the II uuhington National
Monument Society.
JAMES C. PICiiGTT, K'Hyou and PiJBnsnEB.
The Monument Is incendtJ to ??; a literary, tjrrlcultural.
and mi. c-ell.i.icons paper. It Will contain selections of the
literature of tlie day -the best thateau Ik? found in Ameri
can and iiuglixh publications^ inti rtfrtting scienGflcarticled,
embracing ineuh.inies; foreig.i and doaaeatie news: any
nopsls of i.h.* procecdiuj's of Con/resn, and every thing
that such a jouraa! Cliijht be exi'ivted to contain, w iih
the exception of party polities, which will be at all times
most rigorously c\eiuded.
l'iie Monument will l e published for the express ami
the sole pilrpu.-e of aiding in the erection of the noble
column now rising on the banks of the l'otouiac, in hon
or of the Father of his Country, and which every one
who venerates the name of Washington would rejoice to
eeo completed. After d -ductiug out of the subseription
the expenses of the journal proposed to In; published,
the remaining lauds- will be faithfully applied, and with
out reserve, to tbi! purpose indicated. The aid, therefore,
of al! who ar- tviihn.jf to contribute to so patriotic an ob
ject, aid 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 be 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
Veru, who proposea to edit and publish the Monument
journal, as one well qualified to perform the duties ot
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 experiment
with his otrn means and at his own risk; if successful, lie
will receive nothing more, and he asks nothing more,
than a very moderate compensation for his services. Not
one dollar, therefore, of tlio direct subscription to the
erection of the Monument will be, in any event, applied
to the support of the paper, nor the Society in any man
ner hold pecuniarily responsible.
To give the public an idea of what may be done with the
jouruui it is pro|>osed to publish, it may be stated that a
list of fifty thousand paying subscribers, at two dollars
each, will yield au auuual net profit of from fifty to sixty
thousand dollars.
The postmasters, and secretarier of all organized bodice
throughout the Union, are respectfully requested to act
as agents in obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the ^reat.
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 b> publishing this prosjiectua.
All moneys will bo remitted, and all letters and moneys
addressed prepaid, to the general agent of the Monument
Society, U'n. Klisha Whittlesey, Washington.
Ofucek;.?Millard Fillmore, t?officio President: Arch.
Henderson, First Yi^e President; Walter Lenox, (Mayor

T'.mu.?The Monument will he printed on a double
royal sheet?the paper and type being of the best quality?
and in quarto form, containing sixt s:u lance pages, tlir.t
it may be mors easily preserved. The price will be two
dollar* per annum, payable on the receipt of the second
number. The nature of the enterprise not admitting oi

X Mr. J AS. L. HAMILTON?Dear Sir: Although the
number and respectability of tlio testimonials oi which
you are already In poweision, i's to tho efficacy of your
Medicine, "TilE OKKAT VA. REMEDY,"in tbe diseases
i which it is designed to cure, are sufficient, iu my opinion,
| to establish its refutation, und secure for it such patronage
' as will adequately reward you for the discovery of so lnee
j timable a Medicine?yet the great benefit which I have
1 dei ived from its use, and the salutary effects which 1 b.:ve
witnessed from its employment in the cases of several
friends, to whom I had recommended it, constrain me to
contribute, for such Uiu as you may think proper to make
of it, this formal acknowledgment of its sanitary virtues.
My own case was Dyspepsia o! 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 iu the left side of the chest, palpi
tation of the heart, vertigo and congestion in the bend,
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 aiy friends,
in which your Medicino 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 tin
taste as a cordial, and iu my experience corrects all de
rangement of the stomach, restores the wasted or enfeebled
energies of the digestive organs, and imparts strength and
reanunation to tho whole system.

March 11. lxftl. /
IT be'ng desirable to substitute locks and keys of som<
other kiud for those now in use for the mail service
of the United States, specimen locks and keys, with pro
1 osals to furnish the same, will l>e received anil considered
at the Post Office IVpartment until the first day of July
next. The different locks will bo submitted to a commis
sion for examination aud report. Upou this report, con
tracts will, as soon as practicable, be entered into for fur
nishiug such locks and keys for four years, with tlie right
on the pal l of the Postmaster < Icneral, fur the time licirg,
to extend and continue the contract in foroc for an addi
tional term of four years, by giving to the contractor a
written notice to that effect, not more than nine nor lcs*
thau 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 prcscrllied as a standard, tlie De
partment relying for a selection on the mechanical skill
and ingenuity which a fair competition, now invited, may
develop. It Is, however, projicr to state that a lock suit
able for tbe mail service should possess the following qual
ities. vis; durability, uniformity, lightness, and strength.
For the purpose of displacing simultaneously nil the
mail locks and keys now in use, about thirty thousand
new lock* mil twei.ty thousand keys adapted tharpto will h
required to be furnished by the contractor within seven
month ? after tbe contrai l shall have liccn entered into;
'ifterwnnl* the annual supply will depend on the dura
bility of the locks and keys adopted, as well as tbe in
crease of the mail service; but it will probably never ex
ceed in amount three thousand of tlie former anil one
thousand of the latter.
No lock will lie considered if it be like any already in
general use; nor will anyone with whom the con trad
may be made 1st 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 Office Department.
The kind of lock adopted must be patented, and the pa
tentee will be required, oil entering intocontract. to make
an assignment ol bis patent for tbe exclusive use and lien
ctit of the Department, If the Postmaster General shall
deem such requirement essential to the interests of tie
service. Incase of the failure of the con traitor at any
time to fulfil faithfully the terms and conditions of hie
contract, the Postmaster General shall have tbe right.,
besides a resort to the penal remedy hereinafter men
tioned, to annul said contract, and to contract anew with
anv other party or parties a# liu 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 Jock of one bidder, and for the
way mails that of another, lie reserves, therefore, tin;
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
deem that course for tlie interest of the Department. Tli
party or parties contracting will ha required to give bond,
with ample security, in the Miin of thirty thousand dol
lars. for a faithful performance of the contract. The con
tract is to contain provisions for the due and proper In
spection of the locks and keys, and also for guarding
?gainst their passing Into Improper hands; the terms ot
these provisions to be arranged between the Department
and the successful bidder, if a bid should Ik- accepted.
No application will lie considered if not accompanied
with satisfactory evidence of the trustworthy character of
tlie bidder, and of his ability to fulfil the contract.

AsiiLAsn, 20th July, 1849.
Dear Sir: I vifh to express to you the gratification I
derived on receiving the July number of the Merchant*'
Magazine and Commercial lteview, from viewing your
portrait in the beginning, and from reading your address
to your friends at the end of it. >V lien Wo feel under ob
ligations to those who have contributed to our inioima
tiou and auiunlziuiit. we ure naturally desirous to posn ss
all the knowledge of them, of their appearance, of the lca
tuvos of their countenance, und of the character and bub
its of their mind, which wo can acquire. Yon have placed
your numerous readers (at least jou have mo, if 1 may
not speak for them) under those obligations; and the
rumlicr of your valuable work now before me, iu seme
degree, satisfies the desire to which 1 have alluded.
1 have become quite familiar with the Miieazim and
lteview. Mini have no heutatlon in expressing my humble
opinion that it is eminently entitled to the public repaid
and support. It collects and arranges, In good order, a large
amount of valuable statistical and other inti.imatun,
highly useful not only to the merchant, but to the gt a tea
man, to the cultivator of tho earth, to the manufacturer,
to the mariner, in short, to all classes of the business and
reading community.
Entertaining this opinion, I am glad that it lias been, and
hope that it may continue to hi, liberally patronized.
Offering you cordial assurances of my esteem and re
gard, 1 am truly your friend and obedient servant.
Freeman Hunt, esq. 11. CLAY.
Extract of a Utter from Hon. Mitt aril Fillmore.
"I huve read it (Merchants' Magazine) witii a good
deal of attention, and liavo no hesitation in saying ti.at 1
?liink it one of tl'.c most valuable periodicals that was
over published. To the merchant it seems quite Indis
pensable, und to the statesman und man of general infor
mation almost equally desirable, It is n grand repository
of useful fact* and information, which can be fourd no
where so well digested and so,accessible as in those num
bers. 1 only regret that I do not own tho whole work."
L'dUr from the Hon. Thomas H. IknUm.
Washington Cmy, April 20,1849.
Mr. Freeman Hunt.?Sir: 1 owe you many thanks for
the opportunities 1 have hud 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 aid
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 deportments of know ledge, 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 operation#?the
merchant of the interior also?who will Und this magazine
to abound with the information the pursuit ot 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, lor
myself, I have found it most useful to me iu my senato
rial laliors. and have been in the. habit for many jears of
carefully consulting it.
Very respectfully, sir, your obedient servant,
Leiter from Hon. IFm. H. Seward.
My Dear Fir: Have the goodness to place my name on
your list of subscribers for tlm 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
questions involved in the adminis tration of the govern
I am, with great respect., your humble servant,
Freeman Hunt, esq. WILLIAM II. SEWARD.

An enlightened public sentiment has everywhere repu
diated a reckless use of drugs in the treatment of disease;
while intolerable sufferings and broken constitutions l ave
imperatively demanded "Reform." A return from a wlda
and fatal departure from the simplicity of Nature's laws
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 restorative and curative agent,
is a practical substitution of a simple and remarkably efb
eaclous mode of curing the si< k ; for that system of drug

mastery ovor disease, too frequently places the patient be
yond the roach 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, ami renders verbal
communications unnecessary. It is deemed sufficient to
say, that tho " Cold Spring II atrr Curt?" will compare fa
