They are constructed upon strictly philosophical principles, and, fn m several considerations, are not surpassed, it equalled, I y any I have ever seen.. The concavo-convex form of the lenses resembling the anterior arrangement of the human eye,' collects a larger number of rays than could be conveyed upon the ret. ne from ordinary glasses of the same focal power, and thus in creases the distinctness of vision. The size of the glasses, also, gives a greater field ot vision with, less muscular, ac tion. In short, the whole arrangement seems admirably calculated to promote ease, and distinctness of vision, to E reserve the healthy function of that invaluable organ, the uman eye. H A. MEANS, Prof, of Chem. Geo. Med. College Mobile, March 4, 1856. Messrs. Semmons o?

I would not be without them for more than live times their cost. Respectfully, vouis, JOHN H. WOODCOCK, M. D. . Nov. 2s, 1856. 8 swim ' . For Sale.
