THE WEEKLY DISPATCH, , "ubi.ishkd in richmond, virginia, At the low price of ONE DOLLAR per annum, IS the cheapest weekly newspaper south of the Potomac, and as cheap as any in the Union. ( This paper is made up chiefly from the Daily j Dispatch, consisting of the entertaining and | news matter of that sheet, and carefully selected light literature and poetry. ' Hugh R. Pleasants, Principal Editor. ( It is designed to make it equal to any Weekly sheet in the Union for its general interest. In 1 tone and sentiment, it is Southern?its conductors are Virginians, and they hope to merit and re- I ceive the encouragement of their fellow-citizeifs. J They enter upon no mere speculation in their en- 1 terprize, nor are their views and opinions shaped 1 merely to catch the ponulur breeze. From edu- ' cation, from position, from association, from interest, from choice, they are Southern men. Their defence of Southern rights is a defence of them- ! selves and all they hold dear;?that it has been 1 warm unremitting, and as fur as their capacity al- 1 lowed, vigorous, no man who has read their sheet ( will deny. To doubt that it will continue to be ; so is to presume that the principles and ideas which have been instilled into them from their 1 birth, can be eradicated, at a period of life when 1 men rarely change their views They, at least, ' know it to be impossible. 1 Jl3*The low price at which the paper is public. 7, .1,-. .1.- i.? ?:.i ~i i trays in advance.

It is therefore desirable that all persons having articles for exhibition, shall be on the ground as early as Friday or Hts t I O ir ll.? n*l) an<l lltil, AnurlWit wllf.ll ft ( JIIII. mittee will be there ready to receive them. 2d. The Association has an ample lund,and will, in all casbs, become responsible for the safe-keeping ol articles which may be placed in the hands of its officers and committees, (the owner taking a check for fhe same,) until the close of the Fair, which will be announced beforehand, in ample time to give them opportunty to recover their goods, and to prevent thereby the leaving of any goods or articles unprotected after the adjournment of the Association. 3d. Murk A. Cooper, Kichard Peters,.David W. Lewis, Wm. Ezzard, and Jameff M-Calhoun, are appointed a committee whose duty it shall be to see that all articles entering the fair grounds for exhiition,sha I have first been enteredin the Secretary's book or 1 egistry?then labelled with the owncr'snaine and residence?and price, if for sale?giving to tha owner a corresponding card?aud then classified and arranged by departments, and in such order as to facilitate the labors of the several committees on premiums ; and also to employ such police and doorkeepers and clerks, as shall he necessary for the protection of the grounds and buildings, and such clerks as they may need in the arrangement and labelling of articles. 4lh. There will positively he required, in all cases, a minute and accurate written statement illustrating and explaining every article sent for, exhibition?the statement to he delivered to the Secretary. For instance, if a Machine, a statement of is powers and uses, cost, lime of invention, and any other fact deemed valuable by the inventor or maker. If Horticultural or Agricultural Products, mode of preparation of land and soil, manure and time of planting, mode of cultivation, if an Animal, the pedigree or stock, age, mode of raising, &c. If Needle-work or Painting, or any work of Art, the length of time bestowed on it, or the amount of labor; the age, if by children or very old persons the value, uses, &c. Since this is the most reliable mode of collecting such information as may be worth publishing in the transactions of the Society, visitors, pttrons and members, all will take notice, that a premium will not be awarded to any article; whatever its merit, unless accompanied by illustrative and explanatory statements, made out in legible hand, and in a style fit at ouce for the press. 5lh. The delegations of the ser veral county Societies are requested and enjoined to make out, upon consulatiou, a report of the present condition of Agriculture in their several counties, of the improvements in farming, tillage, draining and manuring, which have been or are in progress of being adopted The leading products of theii cnuntiees the modes of preparation, time of planting and modof cultivation.

It is desirable to make the Fair a Central Southern Agricultural andMtnufacturers Exchange We request individuals who have a surplus of slioice articles, or who make theni for sale ?such is choice seeds, machines, stock, &c?to carry them there for sale, and not alone for exhibition for ? premium. 7th. Premiums.?It is impossible to name inanotice like this all, the various articles to which premiums will be granted. However comprehensive we might make any enumerated list there would still be many articles of merit offered which would not be embraced in it, and yet richly deserving premiums, lest therefore the announcement of premiums for particular articles mightbe construed by someintoan exclusion of all articles unannounced, the Committee requests the- people generally to observe, t hot it is intended to give the action of the Association the very widest'scope, embracing every thing that is ingenious or useful in business or art. All then, with whatever they have for sale or exhibition, are invited to come. The only regulation further necessary 011 this point pernaps is, that, on all articles of the highest merit in the department of Stock, Mechanics, Agricultural Implements, and valuable improvements or inventions in any of the departments, a premium of a cup worth $ 10 will be given ; on the second best articles a cup worth # 5 will be given, on the third best $ 2. 50 ; on the fourth an honor. And on all articles of the highest merit in the remaining depart ments a cup worth $ 5 will be given; on the second best $ 2. 50 ; on the third an honor; on the fourth, 2d honor. On miner and miscellaneous articles, premiums from one to three dollars?these, however,are genera) regulations, and in particular case or cases of peculiar merit the committees will be permitted, indeed are requested, to vary the rule. 8th. A hall will be prepared and assigned parti cuiuriy to me i.uuus mr mcir garuen products, j fruits, liowers paintings, needlo-work, <fcc. They are cordially invited to attend. Their assistance in many departments of the fair is absolutely necessary to a proper management 9th. The facilities of getting to this central point induce us?to invite, and to expect the presence and contribution# of many of our fellow citizens of Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and Florida. Wc hope they will unite with us in making this institution indeed, what it is in name, a Southern Central Agricultural Association. Kith. The President upon a consultation with such members as he can call to his aid, shall appoint committee# and assign to them their respective depdrtinents, and to these committees so appointed the oommittee of reception shall furnish lists of the ai tides classed and arranged in their respective departments. In order to the perfection of this arrangement, the committee appointed to publish these regulations, will here repeat, and enjoin upon all to take notice that articles for exhibition may be received and arranged on Friday and Saturday the 9th and 10th of August, so that when the President shall appoiri his committees on Monday morning, the com*nitiet of reception may have their lists of articles, nnu the several committees proceed at once to i::< examination of articles, and thereby have ainp'e tun " to make their reports to the annuul nieetin, si W ednesday.

BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE and the BRITISH QUARTERLY REVIEWS. Premiums to New Subscribers. OWING to the late revolutions and counter-revolutions among the nations of Europe, which have followed each other in quick succession, and of which the " end is not yet," the leading periodicals of Great Britain have become invested With a degree of interest hitherto unknown. They occupy a middle ground bvtween the liasty, disjointed, and necessurily imperfect records of the newspapers, and the elaborate and ponderous treatises to be furnished by the historian at a future day. The American Publishers, therefore, deem it proper to call renewed attention to these Periodicals, and the very low price at which i nt y are outrcu 10 suusiciiucia. x n*r luuowiu^ i? their list, viz : THE LONDON QUARTERLY REVIEW, THE EDINBURGH REVIEW, THE NORTH BRITISH REVIEW, THE WESTMINSTER REVIEW, AND BLACKWOOD'S EDINBURGH MAGAZINE. In these periodicals arc contained lie views, moderately, though clearly and firmly expressed, of the three great parties in England?Tory, Whig and Radical?" Blackwood " and tlic " London Quarterly " are Tory j the "Edinburgh Review" Whig; and ihe " Westminster Review " Liberal. The" North British Review " owes its establishment to the last great ecclesiastical movement in Scotland, and is not ultra in its views on any one of the grand departments of human knowledge ; it was originally edited by Dr. Chalmers, and now, since liis death, is conducted by his son-in-law, l)r. Hanna, associated with Sir David Brewster. Its literary Character is of the very highest order. The "Westminster," though reprinted under that title only, is published in England under the title of the <' Foreign Quarterly and Westminster it being in fact a union of the two Reviews formerly published and reprinted under separate titles. It has therefore the advantage by this combination of uniting in one work the best features of both as heretofore issued. The above Periodicals are reprinted in New York, immediately on their arrival by the British steamers, in a beautiful clear type, on fine white paper, and are faithful copies of the originals. Blackwood's Magazine being an exact fac simile of the Edinburgh edition Terms. Eorany one or the four Reviews, $3 00 per annum.

The second half of the century will be known as commencing the age of Gaa?an agent destined not only to liglu but to knuuhtsm the world. This age has now commenced, and with it is now introduced the Gaa Engine. Professor John C. F. Salomon, after twenty-six years of close observation upon the experiments of his own and of others in attempts to make the principle of the condensation of carbonic acid gas available aa a mechanic motor, has perfected the same ;and,havingjust received letters patent for hia "Improved Carbonic Acid Engine," now offers to I dispone of rights for the use thereof to the U. Stales government, and to individuals or to companies, the rights nl'States, counties, or cities. The immense saving of money ard labor, and of human lives and suffering, secured hy the u.-e of this ilew motor, will inevitably insure its speedy adoption in all places where steam power is now used, and in thousands of other places where the great expense, bulk, and weight of the steam engine has precluded its use. This new motor muy he applied to all purposes as a propelling agent, irom the single-horse power for the cotton-gin to the two thousand horsepower for ocean steamers, with the expense less than that required by the steam engine, of boilers and furnaces, fuel and firemen, and of bulk arid weight? llH) tons weight sufficing for the same power of 1,900 tora of the steacv _ ne.

This temporary organization having bee* effected, the committee proceeded to organize permanently by the appointment of the Hon.

Force,) I the following Dauers were read bv Prof. Johnson, in explanation of the appointment and duties of the f committee : State Department, Washington, May 17, 1850. j To the President of the JV'utionul Institute for the Promotion of Science. Slit: I have the honor herewith to transmit co- t pies of a correspondence which has taken place be- ; tween the Minister Plenipotentiary of her Majesty | the t^ueen of Great Britain and this Department rela- j tive to the proposed ftidustrial Exhibition to he held j in Londou in the year 1851. From the circular of the lloyal Commissioners of Great Britain, hereto annexed, it will he observed that all objects intended to he introduced from foreign countries and entered for that Exhibition arc required to have been hrst submitted to and approved by a central authority or commission of the country from which they shall be brrnught, and that no other will be recognized as a central auPtority except such as shall have been so certified hy the Government of the country in which it exists. That American industry and art* may be enabled to appear in the place allotted to them, it will he indispensable that a recognized ccr tral authority should be constituted j and 1 am under tile impression that the National Institute, having been regularly incorporated by act of CoHgress, and being habitually engaged in matters pertaining to the arts and sciences, is the proper body for taking the initiative in constituting such a central authority. I therefore beg leave to submit to its consideration the interesting and important subject which has been brought to the attention of this Department by the distinguished Knvoy of her Majesty's Government, and to request such action or suggestions as may seem necessary in order that the natural productions, the ingenuity, industry, and arts of the United States may be fully and suitably represented on the interesting occasion herein referred to.

Extract frutn the Circular of Ike Royal Commie eioaert. " The Commisaionera have fhltthat it would bo ueurauie, as lar as possiuie, vo prevent any #? ttoni from sending hither articles which cannot b# admit led, rather than to reject Ura articles altar their arrival in London. They fcel also thai tits delicate and responsible task of deciding on lha admission or rejection of articles destined for exhibition by foreign contributors ought not to bei imposed upon any Knglish tribunal, but snould be referred to one caving the confidence of the exhibitors their si.ves, ana standing entirely free from possibl- nputations of national partiality. They acccr ?ngly propose to admit to exhibition such foreign articles only as may be forwarded to then* by the Central Authority (whatever may be its nature! in each country. They will communicate to such Central Authority the amount of spate which can be allowed to the productions or the country for which it acts, and will also state tba conditions and limitations which may from tim* to time be decided on with respect to the admission of articles. All articles forwarded by such Central Authority will then be admitted,provided they do not require a greater aggregate amount of space than tliut assigned to the productions of the country flora which they come; and, provided, also, that lliev do not violate the condition* and limitations of which due notice shal have been given. It w ill rest with the Central Authority in each country to decide upon the merits ot the several articles presented lor exhibition, and to lake care that those which are sent are such as fairly represent the industry of their fellow-countrymen. " ller Majesty's Commissioners will consider that to he the Central Authority in each cane which m stated lo be so by the Government of its country Having once been put in communication witn'a Central Authority in any country, they must da; cline, absolutely and entirely, any communication with private and unauthorized ^individuals ; and, should any such be addressed to them, they can only refer to a central body. This decision is iicietwmry, in order to prevent confusion. " No articles of foreign manufacture, to whomsoever they nmy belong, or wheresoever they may be, etui be ndinitted tor exhibition unlesa they come with the sanction of the Central Authority of the country of which they ?re the produce] The Coinmissioners do not insist upon such aru. cles being in all cases actually forwarded by the Central Authority, though they consider tlittt thin would generally be tiie most satisfactory arrangement -, out it is indispensable that the sanction of such authority should in all coses be expressly given, and that it be held responsible for ths fitness of such articles for exhibitioi . and for not authorizing the exhibitipn of n greater quantity tlinn can be accommodated in the apt . e assigned to the productions of the country in qu stion." A full discussion was then liud' or the subject thus laid before the committee, and, on motion ot the Hon, W. W. Seaton, it was?

THE THIRD ANNUAL VOLUME OF THIS SOUTHERN LITERARY GAZETTE, Was commenced, on Saturday, the 4th of May 1850, under its original name?instead of Richards Weekly Gazette?as more significant of its peculiar character, it being the only weekly organ or I iierature in the entire South! It is Gi-eatly Enlarged and Improved, Containing weekly Thirty-two Columns of matter. It is, moreover, in an Entirely New Ureas "(Vom head to foot," and upon beautiftil wnite paper, so that, in mechanical excellence, il is not surpassed by any paper whatever in the United States! It continues under the same Editoria. direction as heretofore, and no pains or expense will be spared to make it A Choice Family Newspaper, "as cheap as the cheapest, and as good its the best!" Utterly discarding the notion that a Southern journal cannot compete with the North eru weeklies, in cheapness and interest, 'l he Southern Literary Gazette rivals the best of them in all the chaiacteristics of a truly valuable fireside Journal. Its aim is the diffusion of cultivated and refined taste throughout the community?and it embraces in its ample folds ever species of intelligence that can tend to this result. Original Contributions, from many of the ablest writers in the South, chiefly occupy its columns, but not to the exclusion of choice miscellany, selected I'tom the best American and European sources. The tone of the "Gazette" is independent >n criticism and in the discussion of every legitimate topic, but it is strictly Jffrutral in Politics and Relig ion .' Its columns are occasionally embellished with Southern Portraits and Landscapes, engraved expressly for the wo^k, anil accompanied by biographical and topographical sketches, Us General Information is copious, but caiefully condensed from the leading journals of a'l parts of the world.
