and brilliant transparency, suited precisely and ben

effects caused to the precious organs of sight from
the commencement or using glasses in not being pre

disease of the eyes, and such glasses that are
absolutely required will be furnished with precision
J. T. acknowledges the very liberal encourage

of his aid.
Persons that cannot conveniently call, by sending
the glasses in use, and stating how many inches they
can read this print with their spectacles, can be sup

To persons who have have had the sight of their
eyes so impaired as to require the use of G/asses, 1
would recommend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable per
son from whom to obtain such G lusses as they may
require, as he has suited me with a pair of Spectacles

?very much by a service of years in the Post Office

After most careful examination of Mr. J. Tobias's
Glasses, I am enabled to testify that their hardness,
cl .rneas, polishing, md exact optical Bhape, render
them particularly re oruineudaJble to those whose
merely optical impairment of the eyes are in want ol
uch auxiliaries. I consider, moreover, Mr. Tobias
...ully qualified to determine the focus of the eye, both
iby nia optical Knowledge and experience, and by
sneans of his optometer. In addition, I can further
state that Mr. Tobias has supplied some of my pa
tients will) Glasses, to their and my satisfaction.

and therefore had hesitation iu making the ex

In the experienj' of even two years, 1 have fonnd
great difficulty in obtaining Spectacles that were ex

Atxmttive years a^o, I obtained from Mr Tobias,
in Washington, a pair ot Glasses for the Spectacles
which I used, and found them of great assistance to
my decaying vision ; and my opinion of him ia that
he is skiihilin the preparation of glasses for eyes
not too far gone to be benefited by such aid.

ration, turns hair back to its original color,
afler 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 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 tendency to become gray. It also prevents
the hair from blooming 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.

OiiCTLBifiif: Nothing but a dutj ana sympathy
that I feel to communicate to others who are 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 quite gray, and in spots
entirely bald. I have now used the Restorative about
fire months, 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, which;before was dry, and
it has ceased to come out as formerly.
Respectfully, yours, Ac.,
Mrs. R. A. STODDARD.

cious article I ever saw. I have nsed the Wahpene
and many o'her preparations of the day, alt to no ef
fect. Sinoe 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 their natural
color. It also has relieved me of all dandruff and
unpleasant itching, so common among persons who
perspire fre?ly. J. G. KJLBY.

him read the following, which the Baltimore Clip

^ ou infernal scoundrel, if I hear of you publish
ing ally more lies about James Buchanan and the
Democratic party, I will come to Baltimore and
cowhide you?you dirty English John Bull. You
are a thief and a liar, and I can prove it. You say
the Old Domiuion is going for Fillmore. You know
you are a liar ; so beware how you slander men
that would not scrape their feet on you, you dirtv
poltroon! H. C. Sikmly.
There must be great excitement at Winchester!
From the Augusta Chronicle.
Endorsing Mr. Fillmore in 1852.
The following card, which appeared originally in
1852, is not without interest in the present day.
The chief ground of opposition to General Scott,
as set forth in the card, is that he had not given
a satisfactory assurance that he approved (ho Com
promise measures of 1850; which were made the
test by the e Bigners. Yet in 1856, only four yea-s
after, four of the signers, Messrs. Stephens, Faulk
ner, White, and Toombs, totally abandon the prin
ciples of tho Compromise of 1850, aud make the
Kansas bill the test, with its squatter sovereigns
and alien suffrage features, both of which were re
pudiated by the Compromise of 1850.
Another reason assigned Is, that General Scott
was believed to be opposed to the Compromise of
1850. Yet, four of the signers now support Bu
chanan, knowing full well, that he was in Wash
ington during the progress of the Compromise
measures, urging with all his influence, tho ex
tension of tho Missouri line to the Pacific ocean,
and of course opposing the passage of the Com'
Another objection iB, that lie (General ScotO
had permitted himself to be u*ed to defeat the
choice of the South, either Fillmoro or Webster,
and was regarded by the Bigners as " the candi
date of the Free-soil wing of the Whig party."
Buchanan was used for the same purpose, in the
same way, in the Cincinnati Convention, and tri
umphed over the Southern favorites in that Con
vention. lie is, therefore, the favorito candidate
of the Free-soil wing of the Democratic party.?
Buchanan was virtually nominated by the North,
while Mr. Fillmoro is the nominee of the Scuth.
In consideration of these objections, the signers
refused to join the Scott party and aid them in
completing their triumph over, and sacrifice of
those true and tried friends of the Constitution,
Daniel Webster and Millard Fillmore. The dic
tates of duty and patriotism strongly forbade it!
Brooks, of Mississippi; Abercrombie, of Ala
bama, and Johnson, of Georgia, still stand by that
true and tried friend of tho Constitution, Millard
Fillmore ; the others are tho supporters of the
squatter sovereign candidate, James Buchanan!
But to tho card?read it Southern men, an J de
termine whether General Scott could possibly have
been more inimical to the South and her institu
tions than James Buchanan?whether MillarJ Fill
more, who is endorsed as the true and tried friend
of the Constitution, is not more to be relied on
than the open advocate of squatter sovereignty
and alien suffrage:
" Washington, July 8, 1852.
"To prevent all mistake and misapprehension,
we, the undersigned members of Congress, adopt
this method of making a joint statement to our
constituents respectively, and to all who may take
any interest in the subject, that we cannot and will
not support General Scott for the Presidency, as
he now stands before the American people, for the
following amongst other reasons :
" He obstinately refbsed, up to the time of his
nomination, to givo any public opinion in favor of
that series of measures of the last Congress
known as the compromise ; the permanent main
tenance of which, with us, is a question of para
mount importance. Nor has he, since his nomina
tion made any declaration of his approval of those
measures as a final adjustment of the issues in
" It is true the resolutions of the convention
that nominated him are as clear and explicit upon
this question as need be; but Gen. Scott, in his
letter of acceptance which contains all that wo
have from him on that matter, does not give them
the approval of bis judgment. This he seems stu
diously to have avoided. He accepts the nomina
tion with the 4 resolutions annexed.' That is, he
takes the nomination mm ontrc, as an indi/idual
takes an estate, with whatever incumbrances it
may bo loaded with. And the only pledge and
guaranty he offers for bis ' adherence to the prin
ciples of the resolutions' are 'the known incidents
of a long public life,' 4c.
" Amongst these 1 known incidents' of his life
there is not one, so far as we are aware, in favor of
the principles of the compromise. In one at least
of his public letters, he has expressed sentiments <
inimical to the institutions of fifteen States of the I
Union. Since the passage of the compromise he 1
has suffered his name to be held up before the peo- 1
pie of several of the States as a candidate for the 1
Presidency by the open and avowed enemies of
those measures. And in the convention that con
ferred this nomination upon him, he permitted
himself to be used by the Free-soilers in that body, 1
to defeat Mr. Fillmore and Mr. Webster1, because
of their advocacy of these measures and their firm
adherence to the policy that sustained them.
" To join such men, and aid them in completing
their triumph over, and sacrifice of the true and
tried frfenffa of the constitution, and the faithful
discharge of all its obligations is what we can nev
er do. The dictated ol duty and patriotism stern
ly forbid it.

who thought eight dollars a day not sufficient re

Daniel Webster's time, with his eminence as a
jnrnster, which would have commanded tolerable
wages elsewhere, he gave to the nation, without
grumbling at $s pcr day. But Mark Trafion,
whose life has been spent in preaching the gospel
in a rough way, in the country, at a salary varying
from $150 to |260 per year, with a 'donation visit'
of doughnuts and cold ham thrown in, cannot ait
in the national halls unless his pay is raised to

Senator Sumner.?A gentleman of excellent
political information, writes us from New York
that the Republican policy is to keep Mr. Sumner
in a precarious condition" until October, and
then take him through Pennsylvania and Ohio on
a stumping tour, thinking the longer he is kept
quiet the more sympathy will be excited. The
