ISE1ES to call the attention of all that
suffer with defectivo sight, caused by age,
sickness, and particularly from glasses injudiciously
selected, to his superior Spectacles and Glasses, care
fully ground by himself to a true spherical accuracy,
ana brilliant transparency, suited precisely and ben
eficially te the wearer, according to the concavity or
convexity of the eye. Very numerous are the ill
(?Hoots caused to the procious organs of sight from
the commencement of using glasses iu 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 suoh glasses that are
absolutely required will be furnished 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.
Persona that cannot conveniently call, by sending
the glasses in use, and atating how many inches they
can read thia print with their spectacles, can be aup
plied with sncn that will improve their sight.

Wilmington, N. 0., June 16, 1864.
To persons who have have had the sight of their
eyes so impaired ss to require the use of Glasses, 1
w on Id recommend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable per
son from whom to obtain auch U lasses as they may
lequire, as he has suited me with a pair of Spectacles
for a far and near sight. My sight has been impaired
very much by a service of years in the Post Office
Department, which berth required me to be on duty

April, 1854.
Alter moat careful examination of Mr. J. Tobias's
Glosses, 1 am enabled to testify that their hardneas,
cl / mess, polishing, :n<l exact optical shape, render
them particularly recomnteudatle to those whose
merely optical impairment of the eyes are in want of
uch auxiliaries. I consider, moreover, Mr. Tobias
.ully qualified to determine the focus of the eye, both
by nls optical xnowledge and experience, and by
means of bis optometer. In addition, 1 can lurther
state that Mr. Tobias has supplied some of my pa
tients wr.ii Glasses, to their ana my satisfaction.

Copy of a testimonial which appealed in the Daily
American Organ, May 81, lb66, from Judge V. Ellis,
(la.e ediior:)
44 Paving suffered for many years past with weak
ness of the eyes, and that defect of visi in which re
sults fro'ii a too constant and intense use of these
sensitive organs, wa were led to make a trial of To
bias's new and improved discovery for the eyes, whose
name beads thiB article. We saw them recommend
ed by suodry gentlemen of Virginia, whom we know,
and therefore had less hesitation iu making the ex
periment. We are more than pleased with the arti
cle. We r?ad with lew fatigue with these lens than
rjiy we had ever tried before; and we see more dis
JnCtly with them. Without meaning to disparage the
claims of others, who have made improvements in
Spectacle Lens, we deem it but just to make the
above statement. Mr. Tobias resides on Seventh
street, opposite ths National Intelligencer office."
Lvwcnnoao. November 1,1854.
From an examination of Mr. i'otias's Glasses and
from his observations and remaarks, am convinced
that ha is a skilftil optician.
IfoaroLK, Va., July 27,1854.
In the experien n of even two years, I have found
great difficulty in obtaining Spectacles that were ex
actly adapted to the weakness of my tight This in
convenience Mr. Tobias seems to nave removed for
the present by the substitution for me of better and
mo-e suitable Glasses. They are clear, ohrystal-like,
aud comfortable to my eyes. I would commend him
to those who, from age or othei infirmity, require
artificial aid in this way. J. J.SIMKINfl M l).
Sie: The pair of Spectacles you furnished me yes
terday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are
very decidedly the best I possess, and I am the owner
?jf eight or nina nairs, carefully selected in different
places, and from opticians recommended to me on

About five years ag\>, I obtained from Mr Tobiaa,

From the Frankfort Commonwealth.
Letter from Hon. Hnmphrey If nr shall.
Washington, Aug. 2ft, 1856.
Mt hear sir: I wish I could comply with your
urgent request, that I should be present at the
Union meeting of the citizens of Ohio and Ken
tucky, at Cincinnati and Covington, on the 27 th
inst. Bat, ray duty as a representative of the
people, forbids my absence from a single vote to
bo taken at this extra session of Congress, and I
?hall not be absent from one, if my life is preserv
ed, should the session last until next March.
If I were with you, I should say to my country
men, that the safety of the republic depends upon
the election of Millard Fdlmore to the Presidency,
and that, in my humble opinion, if they are not
wise enough to determine the matter in that way,
they will not be wise enough to save the Union.
I do not writo thus because of mere personal
admiration for Mr. Fillmore, nor because I suppose
ho alone has wisdom enough to ndmitiister the
government through a period of difficulty, but bo
j cause ho iB the representative of concord and linr
mony between the great sections of our country,
' while his competitors aspire to rule, each backed
substantially by a sectional party, only, and each
i hoping to succeed by solidifying sectional interests
so as to win by it.
1 Mr. Fremont has no party in any slaveholding
State. Ho may have a ticket In one or more, but
every ono knows that the most sanguine of his
supporters claim but a few thousand votes for him
in the whole range of those States. On the con
trary, ho has become the exponent of an immense
body of voters in the free States, and his friends
in those States claim his election as a matter which
I time will render certain, and which they are deter
mined to accomplish. The slave States have 120
votes ; the free States 176 votes?149 are neces
sary to a choice by the people. If Mr. Fremont
loses New York he will be defeated, no matter how
the vote of the slave States may be split between
Buchanan and Fillmore. If ho loses Ohio and
New Jersey?or if he loses Pennsylvania and Cal- J
ifornia, or Indiana, Illinois, and Connecticut, the
same result will follow. It Is useless to say to you I
that Mr. Buchanan cannot, if left to struggle
alone, hope to win the desirable result upon any
combination of those States, even if the whole
slaveholding StatOB vote for him. His best friends
here will hardly cUim it?his enemies laugh at the
supposition in utter scorn. He could not, if re
port be true, carry his own State, without the con
test were triangular, and unless it be the esse in
Illinois, he could not hope to win in any of the
remainder of the eombination.
If Mr. Buchanan continues a candidate, he may
impair or utterly defeat Mr. Fillmore, but if he
were withdrawn or abandoned, Mr. Fillmore's elec
tion would be triumphant and most easy of accom
plishment. He will carry New York, in all proba
bility, under any circumstances; but were Mr. B.
abandoned by the slave States, he would carry it
beyond any doubt, and, in my opinion, would at
tract the votes of all conservative masses through
out the frae States. Mr. Buchanan cannot accom
plish this result. The reasons for this lie in the
fact that lie has been ever a vacillating politician,
ia now committed to ultra schemes of policy which
may and will jeopardize the peace of the country,
and has taken the shoes of Oou. Pierce upon the
unfortunate state of things now existing in Kan
sas, and touching tho slavery agitation that now
distracts the country. There are many ether rea
sons; but suflico it the fact is as I state it, and all
candid men must acknowledge it. If tho slave
States, then, prefer to enter upon the sectionnl
contest with Mr. Buchanan as a leader, they will
support him, and leave Mr. Fillmore's friends
throughout the free States to withdraw altogether
from the vote, or to take care of themselves in the
sectional contest which is to come off; for I say it
boldly, that if nothing will do but a sectional con- i
test, the men of each section will adhere to their |
section, and no human force can prevent it.
If such a contest is to occur, it will be because
the Southern people, following the advico of the
Southern Democrats, choose it, and will not avail
themselves of the chance that is offered to them
of electing a man of sound national character,
whose former administration of the government
was preservative of all their rights, yet who was
the favorite of all the conservative masses of the
free States, and who could again command their
suffrages, if thev saw any corresponding effort on
tho part of the'slave States. Mr. Buchanan does
not command their confidence, and cannot attract
their support. Th? South, then, ha# the choice
fully and fairly presented to it, of a sectional con
test by making the race between Buchanan and
Fremont, or of a national struggle in which men
in every section will act, bv making the contest
between Fillmore and Fremont; and as the South
makes her bed so she must lie. I speak plainly
because I feel deeply.
In the event of Mr. Buchanan's election, I fore
see a condition of things which will paralyze the
energies of this government?protract the section
al disputes?involve the country in civil, and pro
bably in foreign war, and end in the overthrow of
the Union, or in a struggle, renewed between the
sections, on a lower platform of Radicalism than
either of the parties?Republican or Democrat?
now occupy. That is to contemplate only a pro
tracted decline of the Republic instead of ?ta spee
dy dissolution, which I believe would be the con
sequence of the sectional contest now. Men may
smile at such a conclusion, and doubtless many
Cood men will, but I never was more earnest than
1 am now, and never was more thoroughly con
vinced of the truth of my conclusions than I am
now while writing this.
If the Democratic and Republican parties have
brought affairs te that pass here, that the struggle
in the legislative department of the government
between them, paralyzes tl.e government and stops
the appropriations necessary for the common de
fence what hope shall we entertain that when that
?ontest is transferred to the people, and they com
bined under leaders who ply every effort to deepen
the struggle into one purely sectional it will be
less embittered than it now has become ? We are I
at a point where we may save ourselves: pass it,
and wo shall drift into a stream whose only outlet
;B a ?ea of anarchy. Have the people, the Ameri
can people, the virtue to save their country by I
saving the Union of these States? That is the
question that now presses for their answer, and I
trust in God to guide your meeting to such a result
as to make that answer propitious of a brighter
future than that I now picture to my mind> eye.
I am no croaker. Look back on my public life,
and I think no record can be found where I ever
traced a donbt of the perpetuity of tho govern
ment. But I tell my countrymen plainly I do now
doubt it, and 1 look to the future with a solicitude
and anxiety my bosom has heretofore been a
stranger to. The people have allin the^ <\w"
hands. If madness rules the hour the fi}*veSutes
will reject Mr. Fillmore, and will precipitate the
catastrophe we shall hereafter so much d'plore.
If wisdom prevails, the people will rally to his
standard, and will, by his eVction re-establish con
fidence between the sections, and^ place the coon
try wtain on the high read to a fulfilment of ier
proper destiny. There is nothing I have or hope
tor on this earth I would not yield to save my coun
try ; and if ever there was a time or will be a time
for a patriotic mind to publish its donvletlons, ? >?
time has arrived now.
These sectional controversies must cease, or tnis
Union cannot long endnre. Already the plains of
Kansas are wet with the blood of our countrymen
shed in its fratricidal war, and think you it will

From the Albany Statesman
A writer iu the New York EveninK Post cor
rects a statement made in that journal, that the
claims in California, under John 0. Fremont, have
been all paid, and says that a very large portion of
i se claims, so far as the bona jide claimants are
concerned, remain unsettled to this date. It ap
pears, therefore, that those accounts only In which
Fremont was personally interested, have been
SiSnli rr' #t ?VeDt8>that the honeat cred
itors of the Government are creditors still
But a very important fact creeps out through
this correspondence. It proves the grossly fraud
ulent character of Fremont's claims made against
the Government in 1858-'4, beyond a cavil. It is
evidence, direct and conclusive, and coming, as it
does, through a Republican channel, is Si the
more important and convincing. We have no
doubt that the Evening Post would have suppress
ed the letter, had the point it involves been under
stood before publication. But it is fortunate that
it was not, and that the justice of at least one of
the "gross personal assaults" that have been
made upon Mr. Fremont, is established by such
unimpeachable testimony. The following is an
Post*0' ^r?m corre8Pon^enc? ?f the Evening
" Under these circumstances, Mr. Weller, of Cali
fornia, on the 12th of February, 1856, introduced
in the Senate a joint resolution 4authorising and
directing the Secretaiy of War to furnish, in cer
tain cases, verified copies of original papers filed
before the Board for the examination of claims
contracted in California under Lt. Col. Fremont.'
This was referred to the Committee on Military
Ail airs, and reported back to the Senate the next
day without amendment. Since that time nothing
has been heard of the resolution. It is probably
on the table of the House, if it has evar been in
troduced there. The prices charged for horses
and mules taken by Fremont were, for horses $80
and for mules *50. But the Board have reduced
these amounts to $50 and $80, perhaps, by way of
set-off to nearly ten years of delay in payment?
kven these sums the claimants are unable to get I''
Now, here is the point. The prices charged for
horses and mules taken by Fremont wwe, for
homes $80, and for mules #50. Thus apeaka one
who is probably a claimant himself, and who knows
the prices charged. Let our readers thoroughly
understand us. This correspondent of the Even*
mug Post, writing from California, and atoning
lnmsell " A California and Republican," distinctly
states that all that was charged for horses taken
by Fremont was eighty dollars each, and for mules
fifty dollars. Of course, thoie who furnished them
took care to charge enough, when the uncertainty
of the time for which credit was to be given waa so
, well understood ; and this writer, who is one of the
creditors, testifies that the price was $80 for horses
and $50 for mules.
But what did John C. Fremont claim from the
Government in 1858-'4, when he received pay
ment for the horses and mules furnished him by
Vallejo? He claimed for horses ono hundred
and thirtv dollars, or fifty dollars per horse more
than he had been charged; and for mules, ore
hundred dollars, or, again, fifty dollars more than
he had been charged. The 44 per centage" he
had fixed upon in his own mind appears to have
been definite?fifty dollars for each beast! The
Government was to be swindled by exact rule.
Here are the amounts as presented by him to
the Board of Claims, and " certified" to by him on
his 41 honor:"
For the following property, taken from the
ranchos and stores of Salvador Vallejo by the troops
under the command of Captain J. 0. Fremont, in
the months of June, July, and August, A. D. one
thousand eight hundred and forty-six :
To two hundred bead of first-quality
horses, at one hundred and thirty dol
lars each -?*.?, $26 000
To two hundred and forty head of second
quality horses, at one hundred dollars
each f J4 ooo
To fifteen saddles, at one hundred dollars
_ e*ch * 1,500
Lo four rifleB, at one hundred doliaru each 400
To one rifle, at two hundred dollars - 200
To two pair of pistols, at one hundred dol
lars each - - - - - . 200
To ten mares, at eighty dollars each - 600
Total $58,100
The same 44 per cen tage" was doubtless levied
on the " saddles" and "rifles" and 44 pistols" aa on
the horses and mules. Who ever heard of saddles
at $1<X)?rifles at $200 each?and pinlols at $100
a pair?except John 0. Fremont? But the Beard
were aware of the fraudulent aature of the claim
and allowed it at $11,700, disallowing $41,400 in
this one single account. Did our readers ever hear
of a more stupendous attempt at swindle f
Here is another of Fremont's 44 claims
For *upplie$furnithed United Slatet troop* un
der command of Col. John C. Fremont.

To 60 44 beana, at $3 - 240
To 4 saddles, at $80 - ? - 1*0

This again was allowed by the Board at $4,086
only; $9,975 being disallowed as fraudulent.
