The Public lliill'lliik* "* Washington.
We notice by the Atlantic newspapers that
extensive alterations arc being made in seve
ral of the public buildings at Washington.
Probably the most expensive and difficult im
provement is that of the dome of the capitol.
The Washington Star thus speaks of it:
The new dome of the capitol looms up, day
by day, though it has not yet assumed any
thing like the outline and proportions it will l
take when completed. The present care of
the architect and workmen is to secure proper
supports for the immense weight of material
to be used in the construction of this immense
dome. The vast size of the brackets, forming
the base of the dome, strikes the beholder
with wonder. Each bracket weighs .7,000
pounds, and their aggregate weight is 504,000
pounds. The brick wall in which the brack
ets are fastened is of great strength and solid
ity, and is to be raised to the height of thirty
feet, forming the arch upon which the iron
columns of the dome will rest. The number
of columns forming the circuit of the super
structure is thirty-six, and each column will
be supported by two brackets. These col
umns are twenty feet in height, and weigh
five tons each. The total weight of iron com
posing the dome is estimated at fifteen million
pounds or seven thousand live hundred tons!
It would seem that such a ponderous mass of
iron would inevitably crush to powder any
supports that the ingenuity of man could
devise; but, on the contrary, wo arc told that
the foundation of the new dome have a sus
taining power more than ten times as great as
they will be called upon to endure.
Smart Butter. —“ Why is it, my son,” asked
a mother of a ten year old one day, “ why is
it, that when you let your bread and butter
drop, that it is always with the butter side
“ I don’t know ; it hadn’t oughtcr, had it V
The strongest side ought to ho uppermost,
hadn’t it, ma ? and this is the strongest butter
I ever seed in my life.”
“ Hush up! It’s some of your aunt’s churn
“ Did she churn it? Why the great lazy
“ What, what, your aunt ?”
“No this yere butter. To make that poor
woman churn it; it’s strong and rank enough
to churn itself.”
“Bo still, Ziba; it only wants working over.”
“ Well, mann, if I was you, when I did it,
i’d put in lots of’lassos.”
“You good for-nothing fellow; I’ve ate a
great deal worse in the most aristocratic New
York boarding houses.”
“ Well, all great people of rank ought to eat
“ Why people of rank?”
“ Cause it’s rank butter!”
“ You varmint, you. What makes you talk
so smart ?”
“The butter is taking the skin off my
tongue, mother.”
“ Ziba, don’t lie. I can’t throw away the
butter. It don’t signify,”
“ I’ll tell you what I'll do with it inarm ; I’ll
keep it to draw blisters. You ought to see
the Hies keel over and die as soon gs they
touch it.”
“ Ziba, don’t exaggerate; go to the store and
buy a pound of fresh.”
Exit Ziba.
Leoal Tender.—The law regulating the
payment of debts with coin, says the N. Y.
Mirror , provides the following coin to be the
legal tender, and we hope our readers will
bear it in mind :
1. All gold coins at their respective values,
for debts of any amount.
2. The half dollar, quarter dollar, dime and
half dime, at their respective values for debts
of amount under five dollars.
3. Three cents pieces for debts of amount
under thirty ccftts ; and
4. By the law just passed, we may add one j
cent pieces for debts of amount under ten cents.
By the law of Congress, passed some four
or five years ago, gold was made the legal
lender for large amounts. Those who, to get
rid of large quantities of cents and small coin,
sometimes pay bills with it to the annoyance
of the creditor, will perceive that there is u
stoppage put to that antic by law.

-rian Revolutionary War. Chief Physician to the
20th Regiment of ilonveds, Chief Burgeon to the Mili
tary Hospital it l’i-th, Hungary, and late Lecturer on
Diseases of the Urinary Organs, and Diseases of Wo
men and Children, has opened his Institute for the
cure of all forms of Private Disease-, mich as Syphilis,
(ionorrho-a, Nocturnal Emissions, and all the conse
quence* of Self-Abu e. In the first stapes of Syphilitic
or (Jonorrhoeal Diseases, he guarantees a cure in a few
days, without inconvenience to the patient, or hin
drance to his business. When a patient, by neglect or
improper treatment , has developed the symptoms of
Secondary Syphilis, such as buboes, or paiimd swell
ings of ihe’ groins, or ulcers in the throat or nose,
which, if not checked, destroy the soft parts, and cause
the bones to mortify, separate and come away, leaving
the aiifl'ercr hideous to Isdiold : or when splotches and
pimples break out upon the skin, or when he bus pain
ful swellings upon the I tones, or when his constitution
is injured so as to predisp«me to consumption or consti
tutional disease, the Doctor guarantees a cure or asks
no compensation. In llhcmnatism, chronic or acute,
in Dysentery or Diarlnea, he has sale and effectual
remedies. For the treatment of the consequences of
Self-Abuse, such as Nocturnal Emissions, Nervousness,
Timidity, Headache, Pains in tin* Hack and Limbs,
with tieneml Weakness, Loss of Appetite, Loss of
Memory, Injury to the Sight, Restlessness, Confusion
of Ideas. Dislik'* for Society, and a Fe; ling of Weari
?i«— of Life, with the nervous system so excitable that
slight noises shock or startle the patient, making his
existence miserable. For the above maladies, the
Doctor will guarantee a cure, or ask no componautiou.
He can *kj consulted free of charge, and invites all to

air A Tkiiu tk to Merited Worth. The ingra
titnde of man to his fellow-man is so often met in life,
that testimonials, prompted by the finer feelings of the
heart, are oasis in the life of those who sacrifice their
best days in philanthropic devotion to the alleviation
of the ills of frail mortality, Kmpricism floods the
column s of our press with fraudulent and fictitious let
ters, singing p<mi- to the worth of their egotistical
charlatanism, itelow we append a letter from a wor
thy man. who, a brief period since,seemed de fined to
*• Sin.tile off this mortal coil,"- who looked forward hi
his dissolution with that pleasure which only those
weighed down by the heavy hand of disease can. Con
trary to hope, the ability of a skillful physician hits re
stored him to his former health. Relieved from his
terrible situation, mid impelled by gratitude, be makes
known his ca e and remedial agent, and his statement
is authenticated by a Notary Public. The demands of
society imperiously command its publicity, and it is
given more to w.im the unwary, than to sound the
pral-es of a physician of whom score* of like cases can
Is* cited ;
Certificate*—The undersigned, desirous of nc
qnaiuting those who may he unfortunate enough to Ik
similarly afflicted where a permanent relief of their
sufferings may hi- obtained, feels it his duty (o thus
publh ly express his sincere gratitude to Dr. 1.. J. Czap-
Kay. for the permanent recovery of his health. Horne
down by the distressing symptoms incident to the vi
clous practices of uncontrollable passion in youth «!• -
pres-4*d in body and mind -unable to perform even the
most trifling duty imposed on the daily avocations of
life- I sought the advice of many physicians, who at
first regarded my disease aa of trifling Importance : hut
alas! after a few weeks, and in several instances
months, of their treatment. I found, to my unutterable
horror, that instead of relief, the symptoms Is-cume
more alarming in their torture ; and living finally told
by one that the disease, lieing principally confined to
tin- brain, medicines would be of little consequence. I
despaired of ever regaining my health, strength and
energy : and as a List resort. and with but a faint hope,
called upon Dr. Czapkuy, who, after examining my
case, prescribed some medicine which almost Instantly
relieved me of the dull pain and dizziness in my head.
Encouraged h\ this result, I resolved to place myself
immediately under his care, and by a strict obedience
Ui his directions and advice, my head became clear, my
ideas collected, the constant pain in my I sick and
groins, the weakness of my limbs, the nervous reaction
nl in y whole system on the slightest alarm or excite
ment, the misanthropy and evil forebodings, the self
distrust and want of confidence in others, the incapa
bility tii study and want of resolntion, the frightful, ex
citing. and at times pleasurable dreams at night, fol
lowed by involuntary discharges, have all disappeared :
and, in fact, in two mouths after having consulted the
Doctor. I fell as if inspired by a new life— that life
which hut u short time ago 1 contemplated to end by
ray own hand. With a view to guard the unfortunate
from falling into the snares of incompetent quacks, I
deem it my duty to offer this testimony to the merit
and skill of* Dr. Czupkay, and recommend him to all w ho
may stand in need of medical advice, lieing assured by
my own experience that, once under his care, a radical
and permanent cure will la* effected. H. F. Fillmore.

af- A Card.—l the undersigned, having lieen un
der the treatment of Dr. L. J. Czapkiiv,although unso
licited. fit I i ailed upon U» give puolklty to the efficacy
of his treatment, hoping that hy doing au I may he In
strumental in preventing others from experiencing the
tearful suffering and miseiy which I experienced, and
which so often result from the pernicious practice* of
pretenders. My di-case has been that of physical and
mental debility, which is the result of indiscretion* id
youth. The agonies which I endured an*, perhaps,'
unnecessary for me to detail ; they are known to those
who have experienced them. Suffice it to say, that
having called the services of Dr. L. J. Cxapkay in re
quisition. all the expectations which I had formed of
him were more than realized. 1 would, therefore, re
commend Dr. Czupkay to all who may find themselves
afflicted with that dreadful malady—my object in so
doing being sympathy for suffering humanity, and a
heartfelt desire for its relief.

•i" A Card.- Prompted by an honest doaire of my
heart. 1 wish to lay before the public a case which de
serves high commendation, not only as an aet of scien
tific skill, hut that of humanity alao. About two years j
ago, I suddenly, and from can ■ unknown to me, was 1
seized with a tit of EpiU-py, which, owing to my ina
bility in meet the cxpeuae* consequent upon a thorough
medical treatment, him! the discouragement which I
met with «n attempting it, whim Is-mme hiicli (as I
Wiii* Ummi led to believe) tu* to defy the skill of h physi
cian. I wim frequently, while in pursuit of my calling,
thrown down to the ground without the dlghestawarn
ing. ami although insensible to the agonies, I vet
despised the miaericH of my life, and soon learned t*»
lim»k upon those who would render me assistance, or
shelter me from danger, as enemies who sought to pro
long the misery of my existence. While in this state,
and having previous to my affliction tasted the sweets
of life, I was once more Induced to attempt seeking
aid of a physician, and, by in-oinme idalion. called
upon Dr. L..L t'/apkay. I told him my circumstance*
ami my Inability to reward him for my sendees, regard
less of which, however, he at once undertook my case,
and, with the blessing of Irod.l was once more res
tored to perfect health. I'liable to reward him for the
boon which I at present enjoy, and yet conscious of
my indebtedness. 1 consider it due to myself, and to
all afflicted, to make the rase public, in order that
those in need of medical advice may lind a physician
in whom every confidence can he placed.

Czflpkay, lecturer on the Diseases of Women and
Children, and Chief Surgeon of the Military Ilosp : taI
of I’esth, Hungary, would call public attention to
Spermatorrhoea. or Local Weakness. There is not In
the catalogue of human maladies one more tube depre
cated than tills, as well because of present distress as
the ultimate results. The tone of the system under
its influence is either impaired or entirety destroyed,
and a class of symptoms superinduced that unlit man
for tin- performance of any of the ordinary duties of
life. The injur *■■* done to the physical part of the man
are truly lamentable, but trilling when compared to
those of the censorium, the great nervo"s centre, and
to the nervous system generally. This disease, which
is too often consequent upon that solitary vice, Self-
Abuse, involves pathological conditions beyond the
comprehension of the uninitiated, but which are well
understood by the regular practitioner. Among the
symptoms m»*t conspicuous are the following: Love
of Solitude, Aversion to business and society, Distress
ing Timidity, Nervous Excitement from Blight Causes,
Low Spirits and Lassitude, Dullness of Apprehension,
and Misanthropy. These being functional derange
ments. are often the harbingers of horrid organic le
sions of tifte brain, which produce fatuity, dementia,
and death. For the cure of this, and all kindred dis
eases. Dr. L. J. C/.apkay has established his Institute,
where all may rely with perfect confidence upon that
skill which long experience and thorough devotion to
his profession have given. Those who suffer should
call without delay, and use the means by which they
recuperate and live. All consultations--by letters or
otherwise—free. m2O-tf

Fro m the S. F Citizen.
Tito question Is often asked—-Why is it that Dr. J. C. I
Young is so successful, while other advertising Physicians
are failing from day to day?” The answer must he, or
slyould he, plainly apparent to nil. It is, that fie understands
his profession, and attends to it, and, as his practice increa
ses, bis knowledge extends. So close has been his appli
cation to his unprecedented practice, that he is perfect mas
ter of his profession, and can insure all relief from their
troubles; and w bile others are daily sinking into that ob
livion from which they were never fitted to lie delivered,
his course is onward and upward, placing him at the bead
of his arduous profession. So great loot been his increase •
of business that he has been obliged to associate with him
self two other physicians, both of extended knowledge and
practice. We would advise all alllicted tu call upon him in
preference to any other Phjaieian. We are Informed that,
lie treats entirely on the Vegetable System, and will always ,
w arrant a perfect cure. His office is at the corner of Mont
gomery and California streets, opposite Wells, Fargo & Uo.s’
Express and Banking House, San Francisco.
From Ihe J'iina and Transcript.
There are thousands In thU Stale suffering for want of
scientific medical treatment, and they fear to apply to a
physician because they have been deceived, or their friends
have been, by some of the charlatans who infest the com
munity, and who publish themselves as good physicians,
professor, etc. To all such we unhesitatingly recommend
Dr. J. (’. Young, a» a physician in whom all can place court
dcnce. He is a man of eminent and profound study, a good
surgeon, an honorable man, and one who can sympathize
with persons in alliictiou. His standing as a physician and
genth man are both guaranteed—the first, by his medical
works, which are an honor to their author, and the exten
sive and highly successful course of practice with which he
has been honored since his advent in California, and the lat
ter by his numerous patrons and large circle of non ua in tan -
cos. We say to all afflicted, call on him. as he will at once
state the case to you, and you may rely ii]ton lii» Judgment.
We like his principle —no cun no /»iy.
