Two Dollars a Year. I t. Petersburg and Moscow. [Correspon lence of the CHIEF.] Among all Ithe wild things talked about I,n St. P'eterslurg society during tle'fort night of agitation and colnsternationll ini mediately following the assassssination of the Emperor, there were few so wild as the fantastic project of disestablishing St. Petersburg as a metropolis, and transferring the seat of government to Moscow-the 'air of which ancient city was, according to enthusiastic loyalists, too pure to be breathod by Nihilists. There are four artificial capitals in the civilized world-Madrid, Berlin, Wash ington and St. Petersburg-and the last has, perhaps, the smallest amount ;of raison d'etre of thetm all. That may be freely gralted. Peter the Great, whose character socrns to have beein an odd compoulnd of a savage Coalintck chief and a shrewdl l)utc burgominaster, ap pears to have Ion guided it Ilis selec tioll of the site for lthe capital of which he i:ntended to make "a window looking into Eiurope," by some whimsical pro dilection for tile physical geography of lHollald and for the structural economy of Iataviai towns. The canals which intersect St. Petersburg closely remind you of RIotterdanl and AIIisterdalll, anid tihe architecture of the fortress cathedral, with the adjoiniiig builliigs, is alto gether Dutch. Alexander I and Nicolas continued with energy the great public works of their prcdecessors, and not gradually, ullt rather " by leaps and bounds," there arose an astonishingly splendid ant' lI.x urilous city, which, its spliendor and lux iuiry notwithistading, is, from roof to basement, a shalm, ill supported, as it is, by decayiiig piles, in the center of a Itiuralss, surriuiinded by a barren and in hosplitable itract:, of lmarshy territory. On the acerbity of the climate in winter and iithe intolerable dustiness of the streets in ul lllle1r, the ttliwhIolesonieness to for eiguners of the water of the Nova and the virtually chronic prevalince of cholera iiil typhus alionig the ill-fti anud lilthy housed masses, it is needless to dilate. With all these disadvantages St. l'ctctrsburg has a thoroughly inetropoli tant cathlt and, were the curse of the po litical deadlock lifted fromll it, woulhl ibe a fall iore lugri'e:ileu capital than either hlerliin l' Madrid. Moscowv, on Ihle coil trary, although possessing a population -xceedilng (it0,Ut00, andi altloungh clalmotr orllsly assertive of its ranllk as a ettop olis, is oily a very large, handsonme provilcial mlow i, ilan I slhouil say that it ioildt e ali nt as practicable to re store tl tity of t.Ihlt Kremilin to its an icint supr'tifuay ias tilhe capital of the domiuioii s of Itthe t (rteat Dihke of M1ns asvy " as it wvouil he tho compeii the luits siaon uohility to rcvirt to the long beards -llni curiusly furred aid embroidered cifltns anid kilpaiks \worn ly the old li,:urds.

No. 74St. Ghaei St 1 S, A WONDERFUL And SCIENTIFIC DISCOV ERY THE MEDICATED GLASSES. You can get a pair of spectacles that will keep your eyes in as good condition forever after as when first you use them. These Medicated Glasses have been thoroughly ex amined and analyzed by Prof. Berger, the great French oculist, and Dr. Carl Ilollander the famous German oculist, and pronounced as far superior to any glass as yet made, and recommended as the only glasses to be used to save the eye. American oculists claim, that the Medicated Glasses have no equal, and can in some cases restore the eye to its original sight, when used in time, and in no case can the eye become impaired by the use of these glasses, if properly adapted, for the following reasons: 1. The chemicals soften the light to the eye, completely doing away with that tiresome sensation that is usually experienced in using glasses after one or two hours' use. 2. The medicated properties contained in the glass make it as hard as a diamond. It will retain its polish and never become dull or dim, hence you will always see through it as bright and clear as at first. 3. The chemicals keep the glasses cold as ice-result is, your optic nerves always cool, doing away with any feverish sensation to the eye. 4. These glasses have no equal for night reading or sewing. With them you can sit up all night, and the light has no effect on the eye, with no tiresome sensation whatever, which necessarily continues to improve the eye. We suit all eyes and warrant our work, or money refunded. Persons living at is distance, desiring the Medicated Glasses, can be fitted by sending address sith postage stamu. The Medicated Glasses can only be had at 74 St. Cl.arles Street, as we have no agents, nor do we employ peddlers.
