WEDNESDAY MORNING, Nov is. *5. .$57, WASHINGTON—TUB WEST BN1. An occasional corresponJcot of Ibe Now York .Journal of C uitnerce, in giving an ac- j count of bis *'( edestrian traveis ab^ut the ci* j ty of Washington,” ***}>• . “If there he any particular part of the city where gnat nen ‘inoft Jo congregate* in pri ▼.ite residences, >t is the same West End to vbicb I have before alluded. Tbnt section of the city which lies between the Treasury Department and Georgetown, possesses as much topographical beauty as will be found in the same space—and spacious it is—in any city of the United States. There being no commercial obstructions, the surveyor, the engineer, and the architect have bad ample room to exercise their skill to the greatest f advantage. The public buildings are not, j indeed, so vast and imposing as those at the East end of the avenue, and at the central point, but the private residences are more numerous and select. Among them tray be mentioned the residence of the Secretary of State, General Cass, who occupies the house vacated by Gov. Marcy, where he wil*' dis pense the hospitalities befitting his s' tion. At another poiot ttfay be seen the mansion of the Postmaster General, Gov. Brown, a man of unaffected simplicity of mauner*3 ard j habits of business suited to the important of- ; lice he fills. Quite near him resides the Sec- j rotary of the Interior, Mr. Thompson. | these arc said to be men of great wealth; and the lovers of elegant soirees are looking to them for their peculiar gratification, with an i expectancy as steady, if not as eager, as of- | lice-seekers look for places under them. Still j higher up may be seen the winter residence of Senator Seward. Crossing the avenue— j wide, airy, and elegant—we observe the man-, j siou of Lord Napier. It is the same that your Senator Fish occupied with his family, , when in attendance on Congress. Here you j pass the residence of some rich New Yorker, | not in publio life, who spends his winters in : Washington, and his summers at Sara ogaor j Newport. There you see the lurge mansion | of a wealthy Bostonian, who is or has been ‘ a tueiDOer oi uoogress. runner on, iu u somewhat more retired position, is the house ; of Secretary Cobb. Again, we find Senator j Gwin occupying the house vacated by Gen. 1 Aiken, member of the last Congress from j South Carolina. Next, on the north side of ! the beautiful Lalajette Square, is the very ele- j gant house ot Senator Slidell, near Mr. Cor* j corams. On another side of the square may be seen the less ambitious residence of a rich Californian, wbohasretired upon bis fortune, and has no aspirations alter political hon ors, no desire to mingle in political strife, but j is content with the society of bis beautiful wife and blooming children. AN ashiogton has been called a poor city, having no com merce, few manufactures, and no extensive business, like New York or Chicago; but it embraces within it a more dignified element of power, constituting it, in Inct, the head of j the oation, as New \ork is the heart. In- j deed, the nation bus recentiy felt to some purpose the pulsations of that heart. May j they soon beat with a wholesome action, j You give the tone. May it soon be invigora- | ted. Almost all the persons above referred , to, are reputed to possess great wealth, and though most of them may be said to be tran sient, others will take their places when they depart, perhaps similarly circumstanced. The city is more ard more becoming attrac tive as the permanent residence of wealthy j families, and will perhaps one day count among its residents a class of literary and j scientific gentleman, who can puisue their studies, and find most interesting intervals of relaxation in the ever-shiftingsceoes around them. *_ GEN. HAVELOCK A BAPTIST. At a meeting of the Hibernian Bible So ciety held in Belfast on Tuesday last, the Kef. Mr. Graham of Bono, mentioned this fact: “He bad to tell them that General Have lock, who is now so distinguished in India, although a Baptist, was a member of his (Mr. Graham’s) missionary church at Bonn, and bis wife and daughters were members of it for seven years. He could also relate an acec- ( dote regarding that great and good man, which he had heard from the lips of Lady llivelock. A\rhen General Havelock, as colo- j nel of his regiment was travelling through Iu- j dia, he alwaysTook with hiui a Bethel tent, j in which he preached the Gospel; and when ( Sunday came in India, he usually hoisted ; the Bethel flag, and invited all men to come ! and hear the Gospel—in fact, he even hap- j tized some. lie was reported for this at headquarters, for acting in a noo-military and disorderly manner; and the Commander in Chief, General Lord Gough, entertained the charge, tut with the true spirit ot a generous military man, he caused the state of Colonel Havelock’s regiment to be exam ined. lie caused the reports of the moral ! state of the various regiments to be read for ; some time back, and he found that Colonel ; Havelock’s stoed at the head of the list; \ m % . « \ ll ___ ' there was ieea drunkenness, its? u less imprisonment in it than in any other.— When this was done the Cimmander in-| Chief said, “Go and tell Colonel Hatch ck, : with my compliments, to baptize the wh 'ie army.”__ mO DELINQUENT REAL ESTATE I OWNERS.—All persons indebted to the | Corporation for rtal estate, which has been re turned delinquent, are hereby notifitd that im mediate payment of the same is required.— rlheir lailure to discharge *uch indebtedness be fore the 11 th day of December next, will subject the paities to a sale of the delinquent property and attendant costs.

OKK DOLLAR WILL BUY ONE OF THE best Purgative and Liver Medicines now [>efore the public, namely : DR. SANFORD’S INVIGORATOR, OR LIVER REMEDY,that lets as a Cathartic, easier, milder, and more effectual than any other medicine known. It is [lot only a Cathartic, but a Liver remedy, acting first ou tiie Liver to eject its morbid matter, then on the stomach and boweis to carry off that matter, thus accomplishing two purposes effec tually, w ithout any of the painful feelings ex perienced in the operations of most CVhartics. It strengthens the system at the same time that it purges it, and when taken daily in moderate Jos** will strengthen and build it up w ith unu sual rapidity. DR SANFORD'S INVIGORATOR is com pounded entirely lroin new articles of medicine, namely, Gums. Some idea of the strength of these gums may he formed w hen it is known that one bottle el the Invigorator contains as much strength as one hundred doses of Calomel, without any of its deleterious effects. Though possessing rare medicinal powers, these Gums have been hut little known to physi cians. and never used in their prescriptions un til useil in the forir. of the Invigorator. which met w ith such unprecedented success as to in duce the proprietor to offer it as a family medi cine, tried and known in its effects. It has rare ly ever failed to cure Liver Complaints in their worst forms. INDIGESTION being caused by a deranged Liver iscured wheu the Liver is excited to action JAUNDICE iscausedbyan improper action of the Liver, and as a proof that the Invigorator relieves this disease, let any one troubled with Jaundice take th< Invigorator regularly one week, and their skiu w ill begin to assume its ori ginal color. COSTIVENESS can be permanently cuied by the Invigorator. Take it in small doses on re tiring, and it assists nature in her operations. By gradually diminishing the dose, the bowels are left in a healthy ami active state, and work as regularly as clock work. SICK HEADACHE is very soon relieved by taking a double dose of the Invigorator, which corrects all acidity and sournessof the stomach. For an over loaded stomach it has no equal, as it relieves all oppressive or uneasy feeling after eating heartily. For a family medicine gene il II _ _ _ _* * ___ 1- iL.a kiiakarf tApnW) rally, all use ti djjcuiv m mv DR. SANFORD'S INVIGORATOR came to us recommended as a cure lor Liver Complaints, and all diseases arising Irom a Diseased Liver. The testimonials of so many of our Physicians in its ta\or, induced us to try it, and now con viction is certain that it is one of the greatest blessings ever given to Dyspeptics, tor it made a complete cure before the first bottle was taken and now we can eat anything edible without tiouble, while before nothing but th< lightest food would digest, and often that gave pain.— Now what we want to say to all our rtaders is. it Liver Complaint or Dyspepsia trouble you, do not tail tc try this the greatest lemedy in the world.—State Fact. We take infinite pleasure in recommending this medicine as a preventive for Fever and Ague, Chill Fkveb, and all Fevers ot a Bilious Type. It operates with certainty, a id thousands are w illing to testily to its wonderful virtues. There has never been tried in our family a remedy which has met with such unbounded successin the cuieof diseases incident to chil dren, as DR. SANTORb’S 1N\ IGORA 1 OR; nor is it alone tor diseases of children that we use it; for it acts as a Cathartic so mildly and gently, and seems to renovate the system so thoroughly that we think we are doing a service to all in advising them, when they need medi cine, to try this remedy. There are cases that have come under our notice w here great benefit has been received in diseases of the Liver, Stomach, and Bowels, where all other remedies failed to give relief. It has become so useful in our family that we will not be without it.— Jacksonville. Ala. Republican. We wish all who are sick and debilitated to try this remedy, and test it thoroughly, and any w ho are not l.enetitted by its use we should like to hear Irom, as we have yet to hear from the first person who has used a bottle of Invigora toi without receiving benefit, for thpre are such astonishing med*cinal virtues in it. that all, no matter how long they have been effected, it their complaint arises from a deranged Liver, will be benetitted, if not entirely cured.
