TO ALL TllAT VALUE THEIR SIGHT.
WISH ES to call the attention of all thai
suffer with defective sight, caused by age,
sickness, and particularly from glasses injudiciously
selected, to his superior Spectacles and Glasses, oare^
fully ground by htnuelf to a true spherical accuracy,
and brilliant transparency, suited precisely and ben
eficially to the wearer, according to the concavity or
convexity of the eye. Very numerous are the ill
elleclB caused to the precious organs of sight from
the commencement of using glasses in not being pre
cisely suited, by the use of an optometer; and the
practice of many years enables him to measure the
local disease of the eyes, and such glasses that are
absolutely required will be furnishea with precision
and satisfaction.
J. T. acknowledges the very liberal encourage
ment already obtained, and further solicits the pat
ronage of those that have not yet availed themselves
of his aid.
Persons that cannot conveniently call, by sending
the glasses in use, and stating how many inches they
ran read this print with their spectacles, can be sup
plied with stu n that will improve their sight.
Circulars to be had gratis, at his office, No. 512,

?.p stairs.
innumerable testimonials hi be seen, and refer
ences given to many who have derived the greatest
c*hsp and comfort fiom his glasses.
Wilhixoton, N. O., June 1G, 18 ;4.
To persons who have have had the sight of their
eyes so impaired as to requite the use of Glasses, 1
would recommend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable per
son from whom to obtain such Glasses as they may
lequire, as he has suited me with a pair of Spectacles
lor a far and near sight. My sight has been impaired
eery much by a service of years in the I'ost Office
Department, which berth required me to be on duty
Irom 11 o'clock at night till after day, during which
rime I used but one Fi^ht.
W. A. WALKER.
Brooklyn Obtiiopardic Institution,
April, 18M.
After most careful examination of Mr. J. TobiasV
UlasBCB, 1 am enabled t:> testify that their hardness,
cl rness,'polishing, nd exact optical shape, render
them particularly re ommeudable to those whose
merely optical in.pa rment of the eyes are in want ol
uch auxiliaries. I consider, moreover, Mr. Tobia*
.ally qualified to cietermine the focus of the eye, both
by his optical Knowledge and experience, and by
means of his optometer. In addition, I can further
state that Mr. lobias has supplied some of my pa
tients w..j Glasses, to their and my satisfaction.

Copy of a testimonial which appeared in the Daily
American Organ, May 21, lb55, from Judge V. Ellis,
^a.e edi.or:)
" 1 aving suffered for many years past with weak
ness of the eyes, aud that defect of visi.m which re
sults iro n a too constant and iutense use of these
ueositne organs, we were led to make a trial of To
bias's new aud improved discovery for the eyes, whose
name hea ls this article. We saw them recommend
ed by s.iodry gentlemen of Virginia, whom we know,
and thei jfore had less hesitation in making the ex
periment. We are more than pleased with the arti
cle. Wo read with less fatigue with these lenB than
f ny we had ever tried before; and we see more dis
Jnctly w ith them. Without meaning ta disparage the
claims ot others, who have made improvements in
Spectacle liens, we deem it but jnst to make the
above statement. Mr. 'i'obias resides on Seventh
street, opposite the National Intelligencer office."
LrNCtiBtma. November 1,1854.
From an examination of Mr. lot ias's Glasses and
from his obset vations and rcmaarks, am convinced
ihat he is a skilful optician.
J. J. BLACKFORD, M. D.
Norfolk, Va., July 27, 1354.
In the cxperien }? of even two years, I have fonnd
great difficulty in ..otaiuing Spectacles that were ex
sctly adapted to the weakness of m> sight. This in*
convenience Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for
the present by the substitution for me of better and
uin*f suitable Glasses. They are clear, chrystal-like,
and comfortable to my eyes. 1 would oommend him
to those who, fiom age or othei infirmity, require
aitifictal aid in this way. J. J.SIM KINS M. D.
Sir: The pair of Spectacles you furnished me yes
terday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are
very decidedly the beBt I possess, and I an the owner
if eight or nine nairs, carefully selected in different
places, und from opticians recommended to me on
ac -ountot their professional standing in France Eng
land. and the United States. I have been also pleased
with yonr remarks and directions on the treatment
of the eyes, for the purpose of preserving and impro
v fig the sight..

tliving been for yeais under the neessity of hav

About live years syo, I obtained from Mr Tobias,
la Washington, a pau of Glasses for the Spectacles
which 1 used, and found them of great assistance to
my decaying vision; m?d my opinion of him is that
he is skiltulin the preparation of glasses for eyes
not too fsr gone to be benefited by such aid.

after having become gray, and reinstates it in all its
original health lustre, softness, and beauty; re
moves at oncc dandruff from the scalp, and all un
pleasant itching, as well as all cutaneous eruptions,
such as Scald heads, Ac., and hence creates a per
fectly healthy state of the scalp, by acting as a stimu
lant and tonic to the organs necessary to supply color
ing matter to the hair, and completely restores them
to their original vigor and strength, and thus pre
vents all teudency to become gray. It also prevents
the hair from becoming unhealthy, and falling off,
and brings it out where it is gone by resuscitating
the organs necessary to supply nutriment, health,
and coloring; matter to it, and hence acts as a perfect
Hair Invigorator and Tonic.

Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, London,
graduate from one of the most eminent Colleges ot
the United 8tates, and the greater part of whose life
has been spent in the hospitals of London, Paris, Phila
delphia and elsewhere, has effected some of the most
astonishing cures that were ever known. Many trou
bled with ringing in the ears and head when asleep,
great nervousness, being alarmed at sudden sounds,
and bashfulness, with fVeqnent blushing, attended
sometimes with derangement of mind, were cured
immediately.
A Certain Disease.
When the misguided and imprudent votary of plea
sure finds he has imbibed the seeds of this painful
disease, it too often happens that an ill-timed sense of
shame or dread of discovery deters him from apply
ing to those who, from education and respectability,
can alone befriend him, delaying till the constitution
al symptoms of this horrid disease make their ap
p( ranee, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose,
nocturnal pains in the head and limbs, dimness of
sight, dca'ness, ncdes on the shin bones and arms,
blotches on the head, face, and extremities, progres
sing with frightful rapidity, till, at last, the palate of
the mouth or the bones of the nose fall in, and the
victim of this awful disease becomes a horrid object
ofcommisseration,till death puts a period to his dread
ful sufferings by sending him to "that bourne from
whence no traveller returns." To such, therefore,
Dr. Johnston pledges himself to preserve the most
inviolable secrecy; and, from bis extensive practice
in the first hospitals in Europe and America, he can
confidently recommend a safe and speedy cure to the
unfortunate victim of this horrid disease!
It is a melancholy fact that thousands fan victims
to this dreadful complaint, owing to the unskilful
ness of ignorant pretenders, who, by the use of that
deadly jtoison, mercury, ruin the constitution, and
either send the unfortunate sufferer to an untimely
grave, or else make the residue of life miserablo.
Take Particular Notice.
Dr. J., addresses all those who have injured them
selves by private nnd improper indulgences.
These are some of the sad and melancholy effects
produced by the early habits of youth, vii:
Weakness of the ftack and Limbs, Pains in the
Head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Muscular Power,
Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspepsia, Nervous Irrita
bility, Derangement of the Digestive Functions,
General Debility, Symptoms of Consumption, Ac.
Mentnlly.
The fearful effects on the mind are much to be
dreaded?Loss of Memoir, Confusion of Ideas, De
Sression of Spirits. Evil Forebodings, Aversion to
ociety, Love of Solitude, Timidity, Ac., are some of
the evils produced.

In reviewing history, I find nothing worth re

Z wh i ?erta,n1^ was the foundation on which
the whole calumny r?sted, and although his friends
attempt to show that he did Mr. Clay full justice
by promptly denying, when called upon, that he had
any authority from Mr. Clay, or hia friends, to make
an> propositions to Gen. Jackson, or that he had intl
a"y "uf a"thority, still Geiu Jackson asserted
that he had done so. It was in the power of Mr.
Buchanan to have at once silenced the slander by
statmg a conversation which he had previously had
with Mr. Clay in the prcscnco of Gov. Letcher
but not satisfied with withholding the substance of
this conversation from the public himself, he suc
ceeded sealing the lips of hoth Mr. Clay and
Gov. Letcher, by a personal appeal to their mag
nanunity, and he is, therefore, in no bettei position
thnn if he had endorsed the stateniont. From that i
time up to his late nomination, if I have read his 1
h.story correcUy he has waged unrelenting war
upon Whig principles and leaders, and in his last
speech to the Keystone Club, ho says:
" Being the representative of the great Demo
cratic party, I must square my conduct according
to that platform, and insert no new plonk or take
one from it. That platform is sufficiently broad
and national for the whole Democratic party.M A/?
ter, this his last declaration, I ask the Whigs, in
the words of Webster, " Where am I to go''^
Since writing the foregoing, I have seen the
letter of Governor Pratt, and examined it to as
certain what course he advised the Whigs to pur
sue in this emergency. In the first place he en
deavors to read Mr. Fillmore out of the Whig par
tv because he joined the Americans, but Mr.
i hnore did no more than Governor Pratt myself
;"dr:';,tho"fnd other whigs did, wh0; benev.'
wL P*rt* wa8 disbanded, as it really
a. j at tim?? united ourselves to some other,
and it does not become us to lecture each other
because we cannot think alike. Governor Pratt
se?ms to suppose that the only question for the
. 11 gs to determine, to coine to a proper conclu
*ion, is which of the two national organizations
^e'r yote, be made most certainly success
nil, and he then jumps to the conclusion himself
that the Democratic organization is the one. Ho
declares that the election of the Republican can
didate will be destructive to the South and the
Union, and then advises the Southern men to de
sert Mr. Fillmore, who has always stood nobly by
ihe South, and sacrificed his popularity at the
North by his noble stand in favor of Sonthern
rights; and he would have us discard an old and
true friend to take up one who has always stood
in rather an equivocal position. He argues that
Mr. Fillmore is not the strongest roan beeaimo in
his opinion, he cannot carry one NorthTm ^
but he does not say that Buchanan can do any
better, and if there ia any reliance to be placed in
the s'gns of the times, he might have further said
that Buchanan cannot certainlv carry a single
Southern State. " * ,
These, however, are the mere opinions of indi
viduals, and should not have the weightof a feather
in making up our judgment. A much safer euide
M lor e?ery man to give his support to that party

V WOru' ?f Crocket^ 44 first see you
are right, then go ahead." Gov. Pratt admits that
all the Free-soil and Abolition Americans have left
l ^ .f" tt" American party, and still he
asks Southern men to unite upon a party support
ed byr the Softs, as they are called in jfew York,
with Martin Van Buren (the candidate of the Abo
ht.on.ata in 1848) at their head. Mr. Fillmore h*.
been tried, and proved himself a national and con
servative man, not only by his acts when Prer!
dent, but in his speeches since his return from Eu
rope. His mauly independence, in qualifying h i
*C<i!?,!fnCeu ?J Armjric<in platform, stands oi.t
in bold relief, when contrasted with the subservi
ency of the acceptance of his competitor.
Wa must all admit that all Mr. Fillmore's ante
cedents are good except his uniting himself to the
American party, and for thia single error we are
asked to discard him and take up one whose ante
cedents are all opposed to us, and who forfeits all
claim to our confidence by accepting the most ob
noxious platform that was ever proposed, and con
fessing his entire dependence on the partv that
nominated him. Mr. Buchanan may bo called the
father of the Cuba project, for as long ago as 1826,
in his speech on the Panama question, he alludtd
to it; again, in his Ofltend nianife^to, ho urge& |f
and lastly in thin late platform. After a full ex
amina'ion of the claims of these two parties and
their candidates, I cannot for a moment hesitate
to yield my support to Mr. Fillmore. I have not as
signed these as reasons to influence others, but sim
ply to justify myself in the eyes of my old associ
ates ; and all that I could or would ask is that
each member of the old Whig partv shall dispas
sionately weigh these candidates in his own seal* s,
and support the one who comes nearest to his
ideas of perfection. CHARLES B. CALVERT.
From the New York Herald.
Mexico as it Was and Ih.
'The high and patriotic position taken by Gen.
Comonfort in the conduct ol his government, gives
the sincerest pleasure to the friends of liberty in
the United States. The hearty support he receives
from the people at home is also a subject of con
gratulation, and it is easy to perceive that if this
Btate of things can be maintained for a year or two
Mexico will at last take her true place among the
nations of tho earth ; and, indeed, it i? high time
that this most beautiful, fertile and rich of coun
tries s'lould realize a sense of its dignity and
emancipate itself from the fetters of ignorance sit
perstition and venality, with which it has been so
long enchained.
The difticulties which have hitherto proved so
serious an obstruction to theonwaid progress of
that State are to be attributed entirely to the over
whelming power of the Church. Never was there
?uch an imperium in imperio as this. The gov
ernments wh.ch were not pleasing to the priests
had no stability. When there were two parties
contending for the supremacy, whichever the
Church inclined to succeeded.
The Archbishop, with nine bishops under hiin,
all having cathedrals and chapters, except the
prelate of Sonora, with 186 prependaiies and
canonries, 1,200 parishes, and a tegular and secu
lar clergy amounting to 10,000 persons, was no
inconsiderable personage. Of the regular clergy
2,600 retide in the capital, and the orders of t !i !
Dominicans, Franciscans, Carmelites, and Merer
darians possess 150 convents. The salary of the
Archbishop is #130,000 per annum, that of the
Bishop of Puebl.i was #110,000. The remaining
bishops receive altogether about #200,000 moie.
It has been extremely difficult to ascertain the reai
value of the general property of the church. No
administration has yet been able to get at the
truth. Some years since the following was admit
ted by the Archbishop to be the value :
Real estate in town and country - - #18,000 000
Churches, houses, convents, furniture,
jewels, precious vessels - - - . r,2 000 000
Floating capital 20)000|000
Total #30,000,000
But it is fully believed this sum is not more than
one quarter of the true amount. The Signor Len
ao de Tegadn, who is now at tho head of th? finan
ces, asserts with perfect confidence that the real
property of the clergy is of the value cf from two
hundred and fifty to three hundred millions of
dollars. In the city of Mexico, containing five
thousand houses, worth eighty millions of dollars
the church owns one half, and thejneome has been
estimated by the Minister at twenty millions of
d0"r- The estates in mortmain alone, amount
to fifty millions of dollars. Wadd.y Thompson
our former Minister at Mexico, was of the opinion
that one-quarter of the whole country belonged to
the priests The quantity of gold, silver, and
jewels in the churches is great enough to pay the
whole foreign and domestic debt. A" single balus
trade, about three hundred feet long, iu the cath
o'the capital, is iupposed to b? worth a
million of dollars.
Is it any wonder, then, that the people of Mexi
C? .,fVe, been one of the most wretched among
civilized nations ? What would we think h.?<l we
a religious body among us owning one quarter of
?ie united States, with a larger revenue than that
of the government, interfering in every political
movement, and exercising special autnority in nil
cases of deaths, marriages, wills, education, crimes
Of the clergy, and putting the canon law before the
, civil on every possible occasion? Suppose, too,
the power which claimed aU this authority was not
only liresponsibla to the government under which
it existed, but should be able to cut off, by inter
d ct, any obnoxious individual, by church disci
phne. f'om any intercourse with his fellows, and
that they could be made to shun him, have no
transactions with him, and avoid him as they
would a leper?what should we th." "t of it
country where such things were permitted ? Yet
this has be*nf until now, the condition of Mexico;
and the struggle is not yet over between Comon
fort and the clergy. They will not part with their
ill-gotten wealth without a struggle. When the
patriotic Gomez Farias, in 1834, during his brief
Presidency, proposed the seizure of the church
property, and the measure was likely to be adopt
ed, he was very soon upset by a counter-revolu
tion excited by the clergy.
Gen. Comonfort must take warning, and lose no
time in making his policy irrevocable. The church
property should be disposed of in moderate par
cels and at moderate prices, and as many proprie
tary interests should be established as possible, at
5? nth"WaJ'.the peoP,e> from motives of in
y.K i,ng ; would *Und by the govern
,<n ! rtr:'K8,e for entire emancipation from
church oppression. Let him look at Sardinia, which
w going through the same difficulties. The church
there has interdicted its religious offices to all those
who take open part with the government. This in
teiference with a superstitious race is one of the
most dreadful of evils, and the statesmen of Turin
find themsel ves greatly embarrsssed by this power
ful spiritual interposition of the clergy.
In both cases, however, the experiment of libe
ration, if persisted in, will succeed. The mind,
once emancipated, becomes endowed with more
than mortal strength in its opposition to priestly
tyranny.
Let those who seek models in monuments so
critical, read the history of th? brave Hollanders,
who rsaisted for so many year*, amid seas of blood
the horrible tyranny of the bigoted Philip of Spain*
