Genuine heidsieck & co. cham
pagne.?The subscribers having been sp
Koinied by Messrs. Heidsieck 6c Co. to succeed
Ir. Charles Engler, heretofore sole agent in the
in the United States for the sale of their Wines,
who this day retires from business, respectfully
call the attention of the public to the subjoined
The Messrs. Heidsieck Sc Co., as set forth there
in, justly claim to be alone enabled to send to this
country the genuine Heidsieck & Co. Champaigne,
under the same name and style as originally intro
duced into this market, now nearly thirty yeara
ago, they being sole proprietors of all the identical
vineyards, cellars, See., which the founders and
originators of this celebrated brand had owned.
Such being the fact, we need not dwell upon the
superior quality of their Wines, the reputation ot
the same among the American public being already
identified with unsurpassed excellence.
We beg particularly to notice that their brand
still bears the same name of Heidsieck 6c Co., in
full, by which it first became so favorably known,
being thereby easily distinguished from other simi
lar marks which have since appearad.

who had the sole charge of its liquidation, con
tinued the business, retaining exclusive possession
of the vineyards, vaults, See., which tne origins
partnership had enjoyed.
Our new firm are his immediate successors and
sole proprietors of this well-known brand.
In order to distinguish the same from imitations
and marks similar to our own, which have ap
peared and may hereafter appear in this market,
the name of our firm in full will be found on the
labels and around the corks.

PINIONS OF ATTORNEYS GENER
al of the United States.?The undersigned
having just published an octavo edition of the
official decisions of the Attorneys General of the
United States, expounding the Constitution, sub
sisting Treaties with foreign nations, and the In
dian tribes, and giving construction to the public
laws of the country, in five volumes, averaging
"50 .pages each, comprising all the decisions of
that character made since the adoption of the
federal constitution, and prior to the 4th day of
July, 1851, and to be continued up to the present
time, with synoptical notes and copious indices,
he respectfully announces bis readiness to answer
orders for the work, and to forward the same by
express, or otherwise, to any part of the United
Being the productions of distinguished jurists
and civilians, fully authorized to decide the vari
ous questions of civil, common, international,
constitutional, commercial, and municipal law,
which have arisen in the course of the adminis
tration of ihe government, and bearing, as they
do, upon nearly every subject of civil polity and
jurisdiction, it necessarily follows that they are '?
scarcely inferior in importance to the Constitution
which they defend, and the laws which they ex
plain. They not only set forth the political econo
my and fundamental principles of the federal gov
ernment, and the rules and regulations enforced
in its administration, but they also define the
pnwrers and duties, and, in many instances, the
compensation of its civil and military ofltcers.
The subjects of national sovereignty, neutrality,
extradition, Ate., are therein thoroughly discussed,
and our revenue laws, land laws, patent laws,
pension laws, &ccommented upon and ex
plained. It is, therefore, believed that public
ministers, consuls, governors of States, district
attorneys, marshals, collectors of customs, sur
veyors of ports, naval officers, receivers of publie
moneys, registers of land offices, Indian agents,
officers of the army and navy, and, indeed, all
public men will find these volumes a valuable ac
quisition to their libraries.
The editions put up in the style of Howard's
Reports of Decisions of the Supreme Court, and
sold at the moderate price of three dollars per
Librarians of States and public institutions are
