Plank roads diverging from each side of them, extending through fertile valleys up to our mountain regions, will bring all the resources ot our Mate into active play CALIFORNIA GOLD ! DISCOVERED BF SIGNOR D'AI YEAR'S f their accommodation, and at a comnara tively small rate of expense. Plank roads can be made, as a general rule, for about the year's interest of a well- made railroad. About one hundred com panies have already formed, or are about being formed, to construct these roads in various parts of the State of New York. The time is coming when most of roads of he State and Union, where there is any considerable amount of travel, and timber j reasonable, will be plauked. Thus far every plank road made in this State has fully equalled, if not exceeded, the expectation of their projectors. The fact that a pair of horses can with ease, and with increased speed, carry double the weight on a plank road that they can on the best common roads, without any other con sideration, settles their value. When the roads are bad, as they usually are spring and fall, four times the weight can be taken on plank roads at such seasons that can be taken on common roads. The farmer can go to market at all times when lie cannot work his farm on account, of weather, or from other causes ; and when other roads are impassable, he can trot otf with his pair of horses and two tons' weight, and return (living some 15 or 20 miles distant from market the same day j while with bad roads, taking the same weight, would require several days, besides great wear and tear of horses and wagons ami harness in fact, leaving actually lit tle return after deducting expeuses. This r r i i i.V ... is no lancuui calculation ; it has been fully proved. This improvement will bring up the value of farms within reach of markets, which have been greatly depressed by the low price of land at . the West. The convenience of getting the produce of the farm to market will enable tiie farmer of the East better to compete with the farmer of the West. Although the cost of land is so much less at the West, the expense of distant transportation will serve to confirm the value of farms near the great markets j Our new States, until they have more money, should go to work constructing plank roads ; they will for a long time an swer the purpose of railroads, except on doing nothnis for the want of a favorable investment. Flank roads win can lorin such means, and set it at work for the public good, and at the same time give a fair return in interest. D.

A plank road is to be immediately built between the city of Schenectady and the village of Saratoga Springs passingthrough the thriving village of Ballston Spa. If the materials can be procured in season, the calculation is, to have the road built and ready in time for the pleasure travel of the present year ; so that travellers from all quarters of our laud can t arrv home accounts of it. This road will pas's through a country for the most part very beautiful. It is contemplated to have spa cious omnibuses, to run in connexion with the Albany and Schenectady railroad and the White Mall railroad ; so that passen gers can pass over the road in two houis, and to and from Albany in three hours, or less. Arrangements will probably be made to ticket passengers through from New York, or from Saratoga, via Albany, to New York ; so that no care need be taken about luggage until it is deposited at the hotels at the Springs, or on arrival at New York. Those who travel with ladies will find great relief in havin- the care of luggage taken from them bysuch an arrangement. In the dryest season there is little or no dust to incommode the traveller on plank roads. The press cannot be too diligent in call ing public attention to these roads. At the South, where timber is cheap, and the common roads execrable, they will be of great value; indeed, in every part of our Union, they can be constructed to great advantage giving employment to the la boring classes, increased value to real es tate, and a good investment to stockhol ders. It is an improvement beneficial to all classes. Some fear has been expressed that the timber of the country would be exhausted by the rage for plank roads ; but such will not be the case. These roads will be constructed so as to lead to ihop districts where the timber is now ready, but of little or no value to any one, or the land on which it grows, on account of the expense of getting it to market. These plank roads are about to open sources of wealth to the Hurt ht i- r ... . " . " oiaic in more vaiue to the nu t ir than i ....... COUNTY CREDITORS.

OR SECRET ART OF FINDING MINES OF GOLD, SILVER, IRON, LEAD, COPPER, COAL, and other MINERAL RICHES. The first discovery of Gold in California was made by Don Joae D'Alvear, an eminent Spanish Geologist, Chemist and Natural Philosopher, by means of a newly invented Magnetic instrument, called THE GOLDOMETER, OR GOLD SEEKER'S GUIDE. Signor D'Alvear has just arrived at N. York, from the Gold regions ot California, by waj' of Panama, Chagre9, and New Orleans, bringing with him a very large quantity of Gold ore, valu ed at nearly one million of Dollars, which he collected there, long before the existence ot the Gold mines became known to the residents of California generally. HISTORY OF THE DISCOVERY. Signor D'Alvear went out to California nearly two years aco, in consequence of certain informa tion which he had received of the eeological char acter of that country, with the firm belief that vast mines of precious mtals would be revealed there, upon careful investigation. He was en couraged to this enterprise, also, by his confidence in the powers of a certain Magnetic instrument which he had invented, called the" Goldometer," by whose aid he expected to be directed at once to the " Gold Placers," if any such existed. Nor were his expectations disappointed. His scienti fic calculations proved to be founded in truth and profound wisdom, and his new instrument, the ' Goldometer," fulfilled his highest hopes. In less than two months after reaching California, he struck upon one of the richest gold mines in that country, up cm an obscure branch of the Sacramento river, in a gorge of hills extremely rocky and difficult of access, and seldom visited by the native Californians. Disguising his object under the pretence of purely scientic research, he obtained the aid of some fifteen or twenty simple and faithful Indians and steadily pursued nis tasK, collecting otten more than $3,000 worth of gold in a single day, which he concealed in a deep ravine, without exciting any suspicion what ever, until after the discovery of geld at Capt. Sutter's Mill, when the mountains were ransack ed by gold seekers, and Signor D'Alvear's " gold placer." the richest in all California, was beset with gready adventures "it is now found that the real mines or sources of the gold, lie in the gorges of the mountains and not in the beds or sands of the rivers. Previous to leaving Califor nia, Signor D'Alvear sold his instrument, the Goldometer, a very imperfect one, for $3,000. The person who purchased it confidently expected to make a handsome fortune, by simply finding "gold placers"and selling out the right of digging to the gold workers. MANUFACTURE OF THE GOLDOMETER, azxu I'UULICATION OF THE GUIDE. Signor D' Alyear, in compliance with the request of numerous scientific gentlemen, has commenced the manufacture of his new magnetic Instrument the GOLDOMETER,which he now offers for sale, in the United States, at the remarkably low price of THREE DOLLARS each, accompanied by full instructions for use, and a variety of Philosophi cal hints drawn from the ancient and modern sciences, or the art of finding mines of Gold, Sil ver, Platinum, Ouicksilver, Coal, Iron, Copper, Lead, and other mineral riches, the whole being given in a publication called the GOLD SEEK ER'S GUIDE. This new work, and the Goldometer, are both now ready for sale. The Goldometer is so simple an instrument, that a child may learn to operate with it in five minutes. It is not affected by climate, moisture, or any other known cause, (except the natural magnet,) and will retain its power of pointing out mineral riches in the earth for any number of years. By the aid of the Guide anv one mav use the instrument at once with perfect succrss. FARMERS AND LAND OWNERS. Farmers and land owners throughout the U. States, who have reason to suspect the existence of any kind of mineral riches upon their lands, should avail themselves of this ooportunity to iesi inatuci, Dy me surest ot all kno'vn tests, before the abundance of discoveries in all parts of the country shall have lessened this source of wealth in their estate. ADVENTURERS TO CALIFORNIA. Persons going to California cannot make a bet ter investment than by purchasing one of these instruments, which will not onlv be worth fifty times its value there, to sell again, but will be of inestimable worth to those who go in search of gold, as has been proved by the most abun dant experiment both in California and the U. S. TESTIMONIALS. Signor D'Alvear does not deem it necessary to encumber this notice with a long list of testimo nials, in proof of the value of the goldometer, and gold seeker's guide. The brilliant results of his labors in California, and the discoverv, this very week, of fresh viensof Gold in Virgini'a, and beds of Coal in Rhode Island, by its use, are alone suf ficent to stamp it as the greatest discovery of the age. Nothing but the extreme cheapness of the instrument, and his desire to see it used for the benefit of mankind induces him to dispose of it at the low price for which he offers it. Resides this, his own desire for wealth is nearly satisfied Astor House, New York, Dec. 21, 1S4S. ' The undersigned, having this day witnessed the practical operation of Signor Jose De Alvear's newly invented magnetic instrument, the goldo meter, feel entirely satisfied that it possesses the extraordinary power of detecting Mineral ores hidden beneath the surface of the earth, and have no doubt that it will prove an invaluable aid in the discovery of the Mineral resources of the United States and the world J.

This may certify that the undersigned is fully convinced that Signor Jose D'Alvear was the first discoverer of the gold deposites of Calfornia, and that this discovery was made by the aid ofa Mag netic instrument called the Goldometer which I have seen successfully applied to the discovery of v eins of gold ore, in places where no indica tions of that substance appeared upon the surface of the earth. T. W. SHERMAN, Lt, .id Artillery, U. S. Army. NO AGENTS.

These pills contain neither mercury, nor arsenic nor any thing that can iujiiru the system but on the contrary, may betaken where a medicine ot" this kind is needed, not only with perfect safety, but with the moMt decided advan tage. In the commencement of some cases of Chills and Pevers. where the system is highly charged with bilious matter, it will be necessary, (before commencing with the Ague Pills) to evacuate the stomach and bowels freely. This may be dene by taking a vomit or a dose or two of Dr. Gordon's Vegetable Antibilious Family Pills, or some other purgative medicine. But in cases of long standing, aad where the system is much debilitated, severe vomiting or purging gunerally does more harm than good, and should be used only when absolutely necessary to remove some particular symptom. They do not sicken the stomach nor operate on the bow els as a purgative. They usually break up the fever in from twenty-four to forty-eight hours, and sueh is their peculiar operation, that the patient finds himself suddenly well without being conscious that they have had any effect, other than to cure him of the disease.
