This bridge is adapted peculiarly to Rail roads as well as county roads, as it can be made of any re quired span, so as not to obstruct tbe navigation of streams when rafts or boats might be desired to pass, and can also be built at a very moderate expense.

From the distinguished Professor of Chemistry mid Materia Metliea, Rowdolii College. Dear Sir : I delayed answering the receipts of your pre paration, until I had an opportunity of witnessing its effects in my own family, or in the families of my friends. This I have now done with a high degree of satisfaction, in cases both of adults and children. 1 have found it, as its ingredients show, a powerful reme dy for colds, and coughs, and pulmonary diseases.

Saratooa Si rings, July 5, 1S49. 5 Dr. J. C. Ayer, Sir: I have been afflicted with a painful affection of the lungs, and all the symptoms of settled con sumption, for more than a year. I could find no medicine that would reach my case, until I commenced the use of your " Cherry Pectoral," which gave me gradual relief, and I have been steadily gaining my strength till my health i3 well cigh restored. While using your medicine, I had the gratification of cu ring with it my reverend friend, Mr. Truman, of Sumpter District, who had been suspended from his parochial duties by a severe attack of bronchitis. I have pleasure in certifying these facts to you. And am, sir, yours respectfully, J. F. CALHOUN, of South Carolina. yThe following was one of the worst of cases, which the physicians and friends thought to be incurable consump tion : Chester, Pa-, Aug. 22, 184G. J. C. Ayer, Sir: I was taken with a terrible cough, brought on by a cold, in the beginning of last February, aud was confined to my bed more than two months. Coughing incessantly night and day, I became ghastly and pale, my eyes were sunken and glassy, and my breath very short. In deed, I was rapidly failing, and in such distress for breath, that but little hope of my recovery could be entertained. While in this situation, a friend of mine, (tbe Rev. John Keller, of the Methodist church) brought me a bottle of your Cherry Pectoral, which I tried more to gratify him, than from any expectation of obtaining relief. Its good effect in duced me to continue its use, and I soon found my health much improved. Now in three months. I am well and strong, and can attribute my eure only to your great medicine.

IIoplce of St. Btii-.artT. The fo!Ioi interesting extract of a ietlor fi'cr.1 nn intelligent; officer of our Navy, now on a lour Ui Europe, is published in the National Intelligencer: HosrirE of Tin: Great St. BnrtNAKD. , Switzerland, August :9, 1S3I. J I have commenced this letter from 1 lie highest habitation in Kuiope, eijrlit thousand an.! t .vo feet above, the level of the sea. "I came here ytstcnlay from JVlarlijiny, about twenty-five miles distant, tho greater part of the route on a mule. The way to the Pass is through a beautiful valley, bounded l.y Iiijjli and precipitous mountain.; the last five miles m-; rough and steep, a had road even tor a mule. Y.V passed several glaciers and snow hanks. During t!.t:' first part of the journey I suffered from heat, hut h fore aniving at the Hospice, the weather became cold anu cuineu me inrougn ; i was quite ninut'U a:u!. m ,b.- ,....! you may suppose, glad to see a good" fire at the Li um pire. The road" has been much improved" in hite years, but how Bonaparte managed to transport his artillery over this intricate pass, is now more than ever a won der to me. It now appears to be almost impossible. As we ascended, vegetation became scanty ; .sen)", miles before reaching the summit of thr pass it was b eak, barren, aud desolate. The building is on the lrghest part of the pass. an. 1 contains beds for seventy or eighty persons. Several hundred have been slu'l- : tered in a day. The monks, who devote themselves so nobly to this duty of hospitality, are priests o the order of St. Augustine ; they commence young at eighteen ! but, from the severity of the clirn -ii arid the great exposure, they rarely remain longer than fifteen years Seven of their number are nowj-tstic.n-ed at the Hospice, and every day in winter they tra verse the pass, accompanied by their do., to relieve those who ;nay have lost their way. or who may have" been covered by the snow. Scarcely a winter pas.-es without some traveler losing his life. Some years ago three domestics of the Convent, with two dogs, while in search of travelers, were overwhelmed by an avalanche. In 18 15 a monk and three domestics pei ished in the same way. Thousands cross the puss annually in 1844 nineteen thousand The tra elers are relieved and entertained without dis!inc:i n or rank, country, or religion. They (tho monks) will not receive any compensation. The dogs do not go aione in searcli of travelers, but are of great assist ance in finding them, and also the road, when lost. The dogs (like their masters) are also short lived, an 1 never exceed nine years, owing to rheumatism ; men and dog both suffer from it. It is said that the latter can scent a traveler neaily a m le off. The wintei-i are very severe, snow being heaped up forty feet. In summer the least breeze makes it uncomfortably oo'U. It is now snowing heavily and quite co! I, real Alnii.o weather, with some prospect of its lasting. Imagim what it must be in winter! There are about tbisty visitors here ; amongst them live Protestant mini-! -is ; one is the celebrated L'reile D'Aubigne. another a ci. up lain in the n ivy; several ladies are al-o heic. I r-hail make an effort to descend in spite of the storm. Some of our readers may remember that a novel the-' j ory of the structure of the Earth was propounded some' i years ago by one Capt. Symmes, and that it wa ev. ! plained ana advocated in this City and elsewhere by John IS. Reyno ds, Lsq , who afterwards became a prominent politician and lawyer here. The theory was, that there was an opening in the earth at each pole, and that vessels might sail through it into the in terior of the g'obe if they could once pass the hairier of ice by which it is surrounded The theory was known as Stjmmcs's Hole, and the designation wj.s quite generally applied to the inventor and the advo cate of i. A writer iu the Montreal Ihral I contends that it has been confirmed by the accounts of the An tic explring expeditions, and that Sir John Frr.i klin has probably got into the hole and can't get out ! He quotes this statement from the accounts of Capt. I'cn ny's expedition : ' Capt. l'enny found a heavy barrier of ice in Wei- . lington Channel, not very far from its opening from Bar row's Stiaits, but a rnr.itt remarkable change teas ob served as he passed to a more Northern latitude; Vie ice vhich he liad left (as is vsaal at this ear; sen en, April and May.) firm and solid, was here decayed ami unsafe, and at last travellers came upon water, drift wood, Arctic aiiimals and birds the latter in enor mous numbers. litre icere all thesigns of an improved climate." He makes the following comment: " I do ncd know how it will strike 5'Ou, sir, but to I me, with whom the idea of openings at the po!e been laminar for some thirty years, the information communicated by Capt. Penny, is excitingly curious. Perhaps, after all. Sir John Franklin, ha found this opening! If there be such an opening it is quite pro bable that the strength of tbe currebt'info the opening may prevent return to sailing vessels : it would not, however, be an obstacle to the return of steamers. How important then it becomes that Capt. Penny' present efforts to obtain a Meamer, and return to the " open water" and the improved climate." may be success ful.". Y. Daily Times.
