HISTORY
OF DEMOCRACY IN THE UNITED STATES.
By the Author of the Republic of the
United States, &c.
THIS important work is now in press, the first
volume of which will be issued early in the
autumn of 1654.
The publicatftn of this work will be continued
by the subscribers ; and in due time they will pub
lish in the several States a complete list of agents,
who will be prepared to furnish copies promptly
in every part of the Union.
That the author may have ample time to prepare
his work according to his views of completeness;
that the publishers may be enabled to issue the
numbers with promptness aud at stated periods,
thereby protecting the interest of their agents, the
following arrangement is announced in the full
confidence that it will prove acceptable to all, viz:
? To stereotype the next six numbers, making ten
in all, thus completing the first volume be/ore any
more are published.
The numbers will then be issued monthly, with
out interruption, to the end. Those who prefer
the volume bound will be accommodatcd without
extra charge for binding; and the numbers already
published, from one to four, will be taken in part
pay, if not injured, at their full cost to subscribers.
In announcing thisninavoidable delay for a few
months, the publishers are not uumindful of the
earnest desire of many speedily to possess the
work. The necessity of accommodating the au
thor, whose labors are incessant, will appear ob
vious to all without particular explanation.

our respective stores for several months past, and
lake pleasure in recommending it to the gas con
suming public as accomplishing perfectly the ends
for whicn it was designed. It regulates the burn

a handsome per-ceniage upon our monthly bills.

RECOMMENDATIONS.
U. S. Navy Yard, Gosport, Va.,
January 20, 1854.
To C. E. Dctrnold, President N. J. Zinc Co., N Y.
Sir : A series of experiments conducted by me,
with the utmost care, during the past three years,
upon all the various paints nnd artificial prepara
tions for the preservation of timber, have led me
to the important discovery that the White Zinc
Paint, manufactured by the New Jersey Zinc Com
pany, serves as a perfect protection against the
ravages of the marine worm, and the formation ol
barnacles, whilst no other paint or preparation Ot
any kind combines the same protective effect.
I am now preparing a full report on this impor
tant subject to the Bureaus of Yards and Docks,at
Washington, and shall send with it a complete se
ries of specimens of wood and metal plates, which
were covered with the different paints and pre
parations, and then exposed alike for an entire
season, in salt water, opposite this navy yard ; all
of which illustrates, in the most striking manner,
the invaluable qualities and decided superiority ol
your White Zinc Paint over all other kinds
paints, especially for marine purposes.
You are at liberty to give full publicity to the
above stated facts, which are of too much impor
tance to be kept from the naval and commercial .
world. I am, respevtfully, your obedient servantJ

Inspector U. S. Navy Yard, Gosport, Va.

vineyards, cellars, ice., which the founders and
originators ol this celebrated brand had owned.
Such being the fuel, 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 Ac Co. in
full, by which it first became so favorably known,
being thereby easily distinguished from other simi
