X Mr. J AS. L. HAMILTON?DkaU SlK: Although the
number and respectability of the testimonials of which
you are alTeady in possession, as to the efficacy of your
Medicine, ''THE GKEAT VA. REMEDY," in the discuses
which it 18 designed to cure, are sufficient, in my opinion,
to establish its reputation, and secure for it such patronage
aa will adequately reward you for the discovery of so ines
timable a Medicine?yet the great benefit which 1 have
derived from its use, and the salutary effects which 1 have
witnessed from its employment ill the cones of several
friends, to whom 1 had recommended it, constrain nie to
contribute, lor such use as 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
destruction of the digestive functions, great debility, ner
vousness, emaciate, and impaired appetite, with pain,
and a burning senmaon in tlie 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 bottles of your pre
paration, been entirely relieved. The cases of my friends,
in which your Medicine was taken, were iDyspepsia, Chro
nic Headache, and Sore Throat, in all of which it proved
efficacious, after the trial of a vast number of oilier reme
dies without benefit. Your medicine is as pleasant to the
taste as a cordial, and in my experience corrects all de
rangement of tlie stomach, restores the wasted or enfeebled
energies of the digestive organs, and imparts strength and
reammntion to the whole system.

With this Key to their contents, the English Common

and Prosecution or Defence of any case that can arise in
our Courts of Law; and being thus made easily and in
stantly accessible, these Rej>orts will be found so compre
hensive. convenient, and cheap, as to supersede the neces
sity of other or more expensive scales.
The Index will lie found of great value to all possessing
the Reports; and of great convenience to those having
access to, but not owning the series.

Messrs. T. A J. W. Johnson:
Gentlemen?In reply to your letter, I can with great
sincerity say, that 1 entertain a very high opinion of the
recent Exchequer Reports. In my judgment they are not
excelled by any cotempcrniieous Reports, in learning,
ability, or general utility and interest. The cases decided
are discussed with great care, i\nd expounded with uncom
mon force. I scarcely know of any volumes which I deem
of more importance or value for a Professional Library.
Cawbrioc*, January 26,1846.
Gentlemen: Your letter of the 2Uh 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 hij.'h value of
these Report*, both on the Pleas and Equity sides of the
Court, I have not the least doubt?the decisions of this
Court for the last fifteen or twenty years, both at Equity
and in Common Law, being entitle! to e<|ual respect with
any others In England. 1 should think an American
Lawyer's Library essentially incomplete without them.

Post Omci Department, 1
March 14, 1861. /
I T 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 locks and keys, with pro
posals to furnish the same, will !*? received and considered
nt the Post Offlce Department until the first day of July
next. The different locks will be submitted to a commis
sion for examination and report. U|K>n this rejiort, con
tracts will, as soon as practicable, be entered into for fur
nishing such lock* and keys for four years, with the 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 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 years.
With a view of proetirlng the best lock at the lowest
price, no kind of lock U prescribed as n standard, the De
partment relying for ft selection on the mechanical skill
and ingenuity which a fair competition, now invited, may
develop. It la, however, proper to stale that a lock suit
able for the mail service should possess the following qual
ities, viz: durability, uuiformity, lightness, and strength
For the purpose of displacing simultaneously all the
mail locks and keys now in use, almut thirty thousand
new locks and twenty thousand key*a<lapted thereto will be
required to bo furnished by the contractor within sevi n
mouth* after the contract shall have been entered into;
afterwards the annual supply will depend on the dura
bility of the .looks and keys adopted, as well as the in
crea/e of the mall service; but it will proUibly never ex
eed in amount three thousand of the former and one
t housand of the latter.
No lock will be considered If it be like any already in
??n<? nil use; nor will anyone with whom the contract
may be mode be allowed to make, sell, or furnish, any
lock ot 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 requlri-d. on entering into contract, to make
ap assignment of his patent for the exclusive use and U>n
eflt of the Department, if tin; Postmaster General shall
deem such requirement essential to the interest* of the
m.rvjoe. Incase of the failure of the contractor at any
timn to fulfil faithfully the term* and condition* of hi*
contract, the Postmaster General shall have the right,
beside* a reaort to t,h? penal remedy hereinafter men
tioned, to annul *ald contract, and to contract anew with
any other party or parties as he may see lit. for furnishing
similar lock* and keys.
In deciding upon the proposals and specimen* offered,
the Postmaster Ueneral may deem it expedient to select
for tin- through malls the lock of one bidder, and fbr the I
way mails that of another. He reserves, therefore, the
right of contracting with different Individuals for such
different kinds of lock* a* ho may select, and also tie
right to reject all the specimen* and proposal*, If he *hall
deem that course for the interest of the Department. The
party or parties contracting will l>e required to give l>ond,
with" ample security, in the suin of thirty thousand dol
lars, for a faithful performance of the contract. The con
tract 1* to contain provisions for the due and proper in
spection of the locks and keys, and also for guarding
against their passing into improper hands; the terms of
these provision* to l>e arranged between the Department
and the successful bidder, if a l>id should bo accepted.
No application will l>e considered If not accompanied
litb satisfactory evidence of the tru*tworthy character of
the bidder, and of his ability to fulfil the enntmet.

derived on receiving the July number of the Merchants'
Magazine and Couiuierulnl Review, flow viewing your
portrait in the lieginning, and from reading your address
to your fribiiiin at tbi; end of it. H hen wo fuel under ob
ligations to those w)io have contributed to our inforuia
tiou and amusement, we are naturally desirous to possths
all the knowledge of theiu, of their apfMnaaiMie, of tin. lea
tures of their coqutenuuee, aud of the clwraeUtr and hab
it* of their uiind, which we can acquire. You have placed
your numerous readers (at leant you have me, if I may
not speak for tliein) under tliohe obligations; And th?
number of your valuable work now before me, iu t>onie
degree, satisfies the desire to which I have alluded.
1 have l* come quite familiar with the Mogastiue and
Review, aud bave no hesitation in e*pressiug my humble
opinion that H in eminently entitled to the public regard
and nupporl. It collects and urranges, 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,
to the mariner, in short, to all classes of the business aud
reading community.
Entertaining this opinion, I iini glad that it has been, and
hope that it uufty continue to be, lllierally patronized.
Offering you cordial assurances of my esteem and re
gard, I am truly your friend and obedient servant,
Freeman Hunt, esq. II. CLAY.
Extract qf a Utter from Hon. Millard Fill-mart.
"1 hare read it (Merchants' Maguxiue) with a good
deal of attention, and have no hesitation in saying that I
think it one of the most valuable periodicals that was
ever published. To the merchant it seems quite indis
pensable, and to tin: statesman aud man of general inl'or
mation almost equally desirable. It is a grand repository
of useful facts and information, which can be found no
whero so well digested and so accessible as in these num
bers. I only regret that I do not own the whole work.*

Mr. Freeman Hunt.?Sir: I owe yon 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?(he
merchant of tlio 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, hut
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, and have been in the habit for many years of
carefully consulting it.
Very respectfully, sir, your obedient servant,
Letter from Hon. Wm. II. Seward.
My Dear Sir: Ilavo the goodness to place my name en
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
questions involved in the administration of the govern
I am, with great respect, your humble servant.

ol a first class ilnno, one that ladies can perform on
with the greatest possible advantage?one that the touch

gers and niovemeut of music, one that will stand in con
cert tune, one that the tone will not become shrill and
grating, that is chaste of style aud elegantly made up ot
straight and regular curve lines, that will last an age?to
give them a call. The ancient standing of the Baltimore
factory, and liberal patronage of citizens and others of
the first order of artistic taste and science, conceded at
once the most critical, have been fully anticipated. Their
recently finished Grand Piano, minutely reviewed by the
most accomplished civil engineers and master artists, has
Iwen denominated truly a Uraml l\ano; also, that their
late Boudoir, for style, power, and compass of tonei is not
surpassed, if equalled, in the world. Friends and cus
tomers, please stop in and examine for yourselves.

JL 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 snot, and
so accessible from all points as to be reached without in
convenience or delay.
A line of omnibuses runs from the steamboat landings
in Buffalo to the springs every ten minutes.
Tlie house and grounds are near the extensive and
beautiful green-houses and nurseries of the Messrs. Hodge*
A Bryants; aud the scenery in all directions is unsur

points of view, from which may bo taken In at a glance
the l road expanse of Lake Erie, the Niagara flowing ma
jestically towards the Falls, extensive forests, and the
"Queen City of the lAkes," 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 State*. 'lhe liouse, recently
erected at a cost of about seven thousand dollars, has been
fitted np In a neat and elegant style, at considerable ex
tra oxpense, and Is sufficiently capacious to accommodate
seventy-five patients.
Connected with the establishment, and constituting ona
of its attractions, are the fixtures and conveniences for in
nocent and healthful gymnastic exercises.
The institution is under the general supervision of P.
M. Davis, M. I)., Professor of the Theory and Practice ot
Medicine in Central Medical College, and Oca W. Davis,
M. 1)., formerly of Dansville, N. Y., the resident physician,
and in permanently associated with the before mentioned
gentleman as counsel, and associate of the medical board

a matter of felicitation that the services of Miss Mary M.

while intolerable sufferings and broken constitutlonsheve
imperatively demanded "Jieform." A return from a wide
and fatal departure from the simplicity of Nature's laws
is mllssl fbr, alike bjr a rational love of bapplne#* and the
deplorable exigencies of our condition. Hydropathy, or a
scientific use of water as a restorative anil curative agent,
Is a practical substitution ot a simple and remarkably effi

mastery over disease, tc?o frequently places the patient be
yond the reach 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

upon which the system Is founded, and renders verbal
