WILLIAM A. BRADLEY, Postmaster. PROSPECTUS OF THE "NATIONAL MON UMENT," A. weekly journal to be published in Washington, under the sanction of tht Washington National Monument Society. JAMES 0. PICKETT, Editor A!n> Publish*?. The Monument is intended to be a literary, agricultural, and miscellaneous paper. It wiR contain selections of the literature of the day?the best that can be found in Ameri can and English publications: interesting scientific articles, embracing mechanics; foreign and domestic news; a sy nopsis of the proceedings of Congress, and every thing that such a journal might be expected to contain, with the exoeption of party politics, which will be at all times most rigorously excluded. The Monument will be published for the express and the sole purpose of aiding in the erection of tho noble column now rising on the banks of the Potomac, in hon or of the Fathor of his Country, and which every one who venerates the name of Washington would rejoice to sec completed. After deducting out of the subscription the expenses of the journal proposed to be published, 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 bo patriotio an ob ject, and one so enttroly 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 reoommend Mr. Piokett, former ly Fourth Auditor of the Treasury aud Charge d'Affairs to Peru, who proposes to edit and publish the Monument journal, ad 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. Pickettwill 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, therefore, of the 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 nsr held pecuniarily responsible. To give the public on 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 an annual net profit of from fifty to sixty thousand dollars. The postmasters, and secretaries of all organizod bodies throughout the Union, are respectfully requested to act as agents in obtaining subscriptions, thus aiding the great 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 by publishing this prospectus. All moneys will be remitted, and all letters and moneys addressed prepaid, U> the general agent of the Monument Society, Hon. Ellsha Whittlesey, Washington.

Newark Academy. By a late re-organ I tation of this department of Dela ware College, the Board 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 Academy, heretofore merged In the College, and of course subjected to all the evil* which have been found 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, without losing thoas which result from its relation to the College proper. A large and elegant edifice, with all the ne?>*sary fix tures af a complete boarding establishment, has been erected and furnished, in which the students of the Acad emy hoard, under the imnn-diate charge of tha Principal and his Assistants; and all It* exercises are conduoted on a *y*tem of It* own, uninterrupted by the Interests or operations of the other department. The furniture of the study-rooms and dormitories has been chosen with pecu liar reference to comfort 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 jrrivat* study and comfortable accommodation of students, fully equal to those afforded by many of our colleges. From its intimate relation to the College, students of the Academy enjoy many advantages not generally ob tained at institution* of this kind. Those who wish to pursue some particular branch which falls more properly within the College course, may be 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 privilege* of the College as can be profitably enjoyed by acadnmicaJ students. The rharge for Boarding, Washing, Fuel, Light, Ao., with tuition In the English, Latin, and Greek, Is seventy dollars for the Summer Session, and seventy-five for the Winter Session.

My own cum was Dyspepsia of long duration, and very aggravated in its character, manifested by an almost total destruction of the digestive functions, grunt 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 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.

J TT being desirable to substitute locks and keys of some 1 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 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 report, con tracts will, as soon as practicable, be entered into for tar nishing such locks 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 forou for an addi tional term of four years, by giving to tho 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 procuring theU>est lock at the lowest pries, no kind of lock is prescribeaas a standard, the De partment relying for 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 midl servioe should possess the following qual ities, via: durability, uniformity, lightness, and strength. For the pur|>o*e of displacing simultaneously all the mail locks and keys now in use, about thirty thousand new locks and twenty thousand key s 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 servioe; but it will probably never ex ceed In amount three thousand of the former and one thousand of the latter. No lock will be considered If It be like any already in general use; nor will anyone 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 (hat of the Post Office Department. Tneklnd of lock adopted must be patented, and the pa- 1 tentee will be required, on entering Into contract, to make an assignment of his potent for the exclusive use and ben efit of the Department, if the Postmaster General shall deem such requirement essential to the Interests of the 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 |>enal remedy hereinafter men tioned, to annul said contract, and to contract anew with any other party or parties as he 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 malls the lock of one Ndder, and for the way mails that of imother. 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 internet of the I>epartment. The party or parties contracting will be required to give bond, with ample security, in the sum of thirty thousand dol lars, fbr a faithful t>erformance 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 against their passing into Improper hands; the terms of these provisions to lie arranged between the Department and the successful bidder, If a bid shonld be accepted. No application will be considered If not accompanied with satisfactory evidence of the trustworthy character of the bidder, and of his ability to fulfil the contract. N. K. HALL, mar 24?

It is, in fact, a merchants' magazino in the large acceptation of the term?merchants who go between nations, whose lurge operations bring many departments of knowledge, and a view of the slate 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 find this magazine to abound with the information the pursuit of hi* bu*l nes* 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 aro 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. . ? .

T^HIS 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 snot, and so accessible from all points as to be reached without ln oonvenlence 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 beautiful green-houses and nurseries of the Meesrs. Hodge* A Bryants; aud the scenery in all directions la 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 Lake Erie, the Niagara flowing mar jestieally towards the Falls, extensive forests, and the "Queen City of the Lakes," with its moving panorama of steamboats and neaselesa 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 cost of about seven thousand dollars, linlbeen fitted up in a neat and olegant style, at considerable ex tra expense, and is sufficiently capacious to accommodate seventy-five patients. Connected with the establishment, and constituting one of Its attractions, are the fixtures and conveniences for In nocent and healthful gymnastic exercise*. MKDICAL DEPARTMENT. The Institution is under the general supervision of S. M. Davis, M. D? Professor of the Theory and Practice ot Medicine iu Central Medical College, and Geo. W. Davis, < rly of Dansvllle, N. Y., the resident physician, and is permanently associated with the before mentioned gentleman as counsel, and associate of the medical board of control. Ami the friends of the 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 Central Medical Col lege, have been 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 position; and onwee rind pains will be taken to have every thing appertaining to the establishment arranged on a plan, and conducted in a way, to ensure the comfort, and promote the btalth and happiness of all who may wish to avail themselves of its benefits. Baths of all descriptions, adapted to the cure i.f the various forma of disease, and constructed on a scale not Inferior to those of any other establishment In this country. An enlightened public sentiment haa everywhere repu diated a reckless use of drugs in the treatment of disease; while Intolerable sufferings and broken constitution* have imperatively demanded "Reform." A return from a wide and fatal departure from the simplicity of law* 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 eurattve 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 ovct disease, too frequently places the patient be yond the reach of farther annoyance. The success tof the various Water Cure establishments In this country, to sny nothing of any other, has fully confirmed the hopes of the early discoverers and promulgators of the great (ruths upon which the system la founded, and renders Terbal communications unnecessary. It Is deemed sufficient to say, that the " Cold Spring Water Cnre" will compare fa, vorably with any of the well-conducted establishments n! a similar character, and will be found equal to the best, as regards the order, convenience, and desirableness of It* arrangements.
