From the great number cf tlif> tickets al
ready sold and the increasing demand, the
popularity of the Scheme has been tested ;
in fact, the arrangement of the Scheme could
not fail to ensure universal satisfaction on ac
count of the superior advantages it offers to
the adventurer. The Managers have enga -
ged in a work of great expense and labor,
but when completed, the CATHEDRAL
will form one amongst the most striking em
bellishments of the city, and in point ol ar
chitectural decoration, will rank with the
most splendid in the Union. The managers
rely with confidence on the zealous support
of their fellow parishioners, and of their Ca
tholic brethren elsewhere, and at the same
time on the liberal of all other denomina
Qgr Orders from any part of the Union, en
closing the cash, or prize tickets in any of
the lotteries, post paid, will meet the same
prompt attention as if on personal applica
tion, addressed to
J f. COHEN,.Tr. Secretary
to the Managers, Baltimore.
More capital prizes have been obtained at

United States.

ed after the drawing with a complete list of
the prizes, if they desire it—those who wish
the list will signify the same when they send
