THIS bill of complaint in the above Mated cause

into a contract with the United States government,
agreeing to supply the government with five mil
lion of brick for the extension oflhe Capitol. That
said complainant, on or about the 12th day of Jan
uary. A. D 1852, assigned to one Samuel Strong,
the said contract j the said Strong agreeing and
promising to pay to said complainant the sum of
lour thousand dollars.
The bill further states that the said Strong, on
or sbout the 2d day of February, A. D. 1852, as
signed the said contract, or one moiety thereof, to
Amos Adams and Isaac N. Comstock, of the city
of Albany and State of New York, and received from
the said Adsms and Comstock their obligation or
promise for the psymenl of four thousand dollars,
or thereabout, as well as a lien of thirty per cent,
on the moneys to be paid by the government on
said contract, until the said sum of four thou!>and
dollars should be paid ; which lien said Strong
duly assigned to the complainant in this bill. The
bill further state* that sometime in the year 1852

Strictly speaking, Beckers' Farina is neither
stringent uor laxative, but restorative, strengen
ing the digestive and absorbent system. In dis
ordered bowels, diarrhae, dysentery, and even in
cases of cholera, when food is deemed admissible
by the physicians, Beckers' Farina cannot fail to
be salutary ; and wbeiever known is extensively
used in hospitals and private praclice. The pres

is at least as important as the curing of disea-e.
