OF DEMOCRACY IN THE UNITED 8TATE8.
By the Author of the Republic of the
United States, *e.
THIS importaut work is now in press, the first
volume of which will be issued early in the
autumn of 1854.
The publication 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 and at Blated 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
iu all, thus completing the first volume before any
more are published.
The numbers will then be issued monthly, with
out interruption, to tbe end. Those who prefer
the volume bound will be accommodated 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 this unavoidable delay for a few
months, the publishers are not unmindtul 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.

Washington, March 14, 1854.
We have had Kidder's Gas Regulator in use in
our respective stores for several months past, and
take pleasure in recommending it to the gas con
suming public as accomplishing perfectly the ends
for which it was designed. It regulates the burn
ing of the gas, and with as good a light saves us
a handsome per-centage upon our monthly bills.

I have been using Kidder's Gas Regulators in
my billiard-rooms, at the northeast corner of Penn
sylvania avenue and Thirteenth street, and also
in my house, next door to the Union printing of
fice. The Regulstors operate finely, and in point
of economy 1 have saved by it at least twenty-five
per cent, on the quantity of gas oonsumed.
C. W. Funt.

I have been using Kidder's Regu^tor in my ho

before using it, and do feel confident that it is a

To C. E. Drtmold, 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 and 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 ot
barnacles, whilst no other paint or preparation ot
any kind combines the same protective effect.
1 am now preparing a full report on this impor
tant subject to the Bureaus of ^ ards and Docks, at
Washington,and shall send with it a complete se
ries of specimens of wood ant metal ptates, 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
Inspector U. S. Navy Yard, Gosport, Va.
Office of the N. Y. and Liverpool U. S.
Mail Steamship Co., Jan. 31, 15w4.
The steamers of this company use exclusively
the Zinc Paint manufactured by the New Jersey
Zinc Company, experience having proved its de
cided superiority over all other paints.
