WOOD'S HAIR RESTORATIVE, ft tills Astonishing and Unequaled prepa id ration, turns hair back to its original color, after having become gray, and reinstates it in all its original health, lustre, softness, and beauty: re moves at once 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 stiinu 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 tendency to become gray. It also prevents the hair from t?:oming unhealthy, and falling off, and brings it out where it is gone by resuscitating the organs necewary to 8UPP'y nutriment, health, and coloring matter to it, and hence acts as a perfect Hair Invigorator and Tonic, CnABLwrrowN, Mass., Aug. 9,1855. Gbktlbukn: Nothing but a duty ana sympathy that I feel to oommunicate to others who arc afflicted as I have been would induce me to give this public acknowledgment of the benefit I have received from Prof. Wood's Hair Restorative. When I first com menced using it, my hair was auite gray, and in spots entirely bald. I have now used the Restorative about five naonths, and my hair is entirely changed to its original color, brown, and the new hair is over three inches in length on the spots where it was bald. I have also been much gratified at the healthy mois ture and vigor of the hair, wliich;before was dry, and it has ceased to come out as formerly, Respoctfully, yours, Ac., Mrs. R. A. STODDARD. W ATSRFORD, 1854. Prof. O. J. Wood: With confidence can I recom mend your Hair Restorative as being the most effica cious article I ever saw. I ha^e used the Wahpene and many o'her preparations of the day, all to no ef fect. Since using your Hair Restorative, my hair and whiskers, which were almost white, have gradu ally grown dark, and I now feel confident that a few more applications will restore them to fheir natural oolor. ft also has relieved me of all dandruff and unpleasant itching, so common among parsons who perspire fret ly.

Organic Weakness, Immediately cured and full viqor restored. This dreadful disease is the penalty most frequent ly paid by those who liuvc become the victims of im proper indigencies. Young persons are too apt to commit excesses, not being aware of thedreadfulcon sequences that may ensue. Now, who that under stands the subject will pretend to deny that the power of procreation is lost sooner by those falling into im proper habits than by the prudent. Besides being deprived the pleasure of healthy offspring, the most serious and destructive symptoms to both body and mind arise.

Dr. Johnston, Member of the Royal College of Surgeons, London, graduate from one of the most eminent Colleges oi the United States, and the greater part of whose life has been spent in the hospitals ofLoudon, Paris, Phila delphia and elsewhere, hy effected somo 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 bashfnlness, with frequent blushing, attended sometimes with derangement of mind, were cured immediately. A Certain Disease. When tho misguided and imprudent votary of plea sure finds he has imbibed tho 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 pe rtnee, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose nocturnal pains in the hend and limbs, dimness of sight, deafness, rntdes on the shin bonus and arms blotcnes on the head, face, and extremities, prog-res' sing with frightful rapidity, til!, 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 ofcommisseratloii.till death puts a period to his dread ful Bufferings by sending him to "that bourne from whence no traveller returns." To such, therefore l)r. Johnston pledges himself to preserve the most inviolable secrecy; and, from his extensive practice in the first hospitals in Europe and America, he can confidently recommend a safe and speedy cure to the mi fortunate victim of this horrid disease. I l is a melancholy fact that thousands fan victims to this dreadful complaint, owing to the unskilful ness of ignorant pretenderfi, who, by tho use of that deadly poison, merevry, ruin the constitution, and either send the uufortuuate sufferer to an untimely grave, or else make tho residue of life miserable.

Mr. Clarke rose to a question of privilege, and made the following personal explanation : 44 It would appear from the proceedings Of this Board, of August 11 th, that I voted in favor of declaring the seat recently occuplod by Mr. Vena ble, from the Sixth Ward, to be vacant, whereas, in my o#n opinion, there is no vacancy. I am re ported correctly as having voted for Mr. Jefferson's resolution declaring the place vacant, but I voted for it merely as an amenvlrocnt, by way of substi tute for another resolution declaring Mr. Venable elected and accepting his reB:gnation, it being tho lesj objectionable of the two; but I intended to vote against the whole resolution on its final pas sage. It seems not to have been deemed necessa ry to Uke another vote on its final passage, by reason of which my views do not appear by my vote. My opinion is, that, as Mr. Venable was ascertained, by a committee of this Board, #ot to have been elected from the Sixth Ward, by reason of his not having been a freeholder on the day of election, then the pereon returned by the commis- .< sioners as having received the next highest num ber of votes, ho being otherwise duly qualified and eligible, was duly elected. I examined myself the original returns from the Sixth Ward and ascer tained Lemuel Guddis to be that person, and I therefore regard him as being entitled to the Beat for which the Board has ordered a new election to be held in the Sixth Ward." Mr. Towles, from the Committee of Claims, made an adverse report on the petition of John Kenney, and asked to be discharged from its further con sideration ; which was agreed to, and the commit tee was accordingly discharged.

Williamson ; which were severally read a third time and passed. Mr. Watterston, from the Committee on Police, reported a bill prescribing struck measure for oatB. Mr. Lloyd moved that the further consideration of the bill be postponed until Monday next; which was agreed to. Mr. Baldwin, from the Committee on tho Fire Department, reported a bill making an appropria tion to pay a deficiency for building a house for the American Hook and Ladder Company; which was read three times and passed. Mr. Lloyd from tho Committee on the Washing ton Asylum, reported back tho "joint resolution requesting the Mayor to authorize the Commis sioners of the Asylum to pay the claim of Joseph W. Davia." ' Mr. Clarko moved that the further consideration of the joint jesolution be postponed until Monday next; which was agreed to. The President laid before the Board a commu nication from the Mayor, returning, in compliance with a resolution of this Board of the 11th inst., tho bill entitled " An act making appropriations for cleaning the avenues, streets, and alleys in tho several wards."

One of the Buchanan organs of this city, speaking of the charge of bargain and corruption by which Mr. Clay was smitten down, says: " Mr. Clay's opinion was, not that Buchanan, nor even Kremer, was the original fabricator of the calumny, but that Jackson was tho inventor of it! That was also tho opinion of the Kentucky Whig State Convention of 1827, as stated in their ad dress, written by Isham Talbott, and read by Charles S. Morehead (now K. N. Governor of Kv.) and that is the opinion, we believe, of all candid men now." We have no comments to make upon such de clarations emanating from a Sag-Nicht organ of the present day. W^e shall see, however, how the myriads of Gen. Jackson's old fViends will bear the announcement that an organ of theirs shall stig matize the dead hero as " tho inventor" of the most stupendous political calumny over promulga ted in the United States. If the Sag-N:cht caiiso is reduced to such a strait that its defenders, in order to avert the people's indignation and scorn from James Buchanan, must heap opprobrium mountain-high upon the grave of Jackson, its last end must assuredly be near at hand.

The Author oir the Potiphar Papers Plagia rising for Fremont.?Curtis, the author of the Potiphar Papers, and editor of Downing's Posthu mous Essays, but first pimularly known by his rich ly-poetic narrative of Eastern Travel, has been miking speeches at various points in the State of New York in favor of Fremont. The Tribune re publishes one of these, with laudatory remarks, ad nauseam. The Buffalo Commercial takes up the speech, and, on examining it critically, finds it a patchwork affair, made up of plagiarisms from Emerson, Banctoft, and others; whole sentences from whom have been interwoven into the textuie of the fabric. If Mr. Curtis is at all sensitive, he must feel very acutely this dashing exposure of his literary larcenies. Copper Mines.?Fine specimens of pure copper have lately been found on the lands of Mr. Jesse Main, two and a half miles east of Middletown, Maryland, in a little valley, enclosed by the ridges of the Catoctin mountain. From the quantity and quality of the specimens found on the surface, there is supposed to be a valuable bed of ore be neath. Mr. Charles E. Seidell, of Virginia, a gen tleman of Urge acquaintance with mining opera tions, has taken a lease of the premises, and, we understand, intends to commence operating cs soon as possible.?
