To persons who have have had the eight of their

w onld recommend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable per
son from whom to obtain such Glasses as they may
lequire, as he has Buitcd me with a pair of Spectacles

After most careful examination of Mr. J. Tobias's
Glasses, 1 am enabled to testify that their hardness,
cl mess, polishing, md exact optical shape, render
them particularly rerommeudable to those whose
merely optical impairment ot the eyes are in want of
uch auxiliaries. I consider, moreover, Mr. Tobias
?ally qualified to determine the focus of the eye, both

meaus of his optometer. In addition, I can lurther
Btato that Mr. Tobias has supplied some of my pa

Copy of a testimonial which appeared in the Daily
American Organ, May 21, lb55, from Judge Y. Ellis,
"I'aving suffered for many years past with weak
ness of the eyes, and that defect of vision which re
sults from a too constant and intense use of these
sensitive organs, we were led to make a trial of To
bias's new and improved discovery for the eyes, whose
name beads this article. We saw them recommend
ed by sundry gentlemen of Virginis, whom we know,
and therefore had less hesitation iu making the ex
periment. We aro more than pleased with the arti
cle. We read with less fatigue with these lens than
i.ny we had ever tried before; and we see more dis
auctiy 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 the National Intelligencer office."

From an examination of Mo*. Tobias's Glasses and
from hiB observations and remaarks, am convinced
that he is a skilful optician.
J. J. BLACKFORD, M. D.
Norfolk, Va., July 27, 1854.
In tEe experienjr of even two years, I have found
great difficulty in obtaining Spectacles that were ex
actly adapted to the weakness of my sight. This in
convenience Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for
the present by the substitution for me of better and
mo-e suitable G lasses. They are clear, chrystal-like,
and comfortable to my eyes. I would commend him
to those who, from age or otiiei infirmity, require
artificial aid in this way. J. J.SIMKINn M. D.
Sir: The pair of Spectacles you furnished me yes
torday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are
very docidedly the best I possets,and I am the owner
)f eight or nine uairs, careful by selected in different
Y>laces, and from opticians recommended to me on
account ol their professional str.ndinp in France Eng

with your remarks and direct ions on the treatment
ol the eyes, for the purpose of preserving and impro

About five years ago, I obtained from Mr.Tobias,

frame their constitution and laws, and to regulate
their domestic and social affairs in their own mode,

Union whenever they have the requisite popula

was then suffering from a severely bruised hand. I
applied it in the store, and was astounded at the al
most instantaneous relief. Before I left the store, the
inflammation was removed, and in less than an hour,
the pain ceased. In two days my hand was well as
ever. Finding it to be really a remedy, I determined
to try its effects as a curative for the Piles, to which I
had been a martyr for years. After five dressings,
my piles were amongst the thinga that had been. I
am now entirely free from them, and in as good

There oame a giant to my door,
A giant fierce uud Btrohg,
Hit step wan heavy ou the floor,
His ariiin were ten yarda long,
He Bcowled and frowned: he shook the ground; I
I trembled through and through?
At length I looked him in the facc,
And cried?" Who cares for you?
The mighty giant, aa I spoke,
Qrew pale, and thin, and small,
And through his body, us 'twere smoke,
I saw the sunshine fall.
His blood-red eyes turned blue as skies,
He whispered Boft and low,
Is this, I cried, with glowing pride,
Is this the mighty toe f
He sunk before my earnest face,
He vanished quite away,
And left no shadow on las pluc?
Between me and the day.
Such giants come to strike us dumb?
But weak in every part,
They melt before the atroug man's eyes,
And fly the true of heart.
Mr. Breckinridge for Squatter Sovereignty.
We have already noticed the fact that Mr. Breck
inridge, tho Cincinnati nominee for tho Vice Pres
idency, had mounted the stump. He, Gon. Cass,
and John Van Buren, all made speeches at a mass
meeting, held at Tippecanoo Battle Ground, on
Wednesday, the 8d instant, when Mr. Breckin
ridge took open ground for Squatter Sovereignty,
as appears by the following extract taken from tlie
sketch made by the Louisville Courier, a zealous
?'The speaker had heard it charged that the fif
teen slave States were conspiring to obtain entire
possession of the General Government, with a view
of bringing its powers to bear to extend and per
petuate their ' peculiar institutions.' Gentlemen,
there has been no such attempt. I am connected
with no party that has for its object the extension
of slavery, nor with any to prevent the people of a
State or Territory from deciding the question of its
existence or non-existence with them for them
" The speaker continued. I happened to be iu
Congress wheti the Nebraska bill passed, and gave
it my voice and vote, and because it did what it
did, viz : It acknowledged the right of the people
of a Territory to settle the question for themselves,
and not because I supposed, what I do not now
bcliove, that it legislated slavery into the Territo
ry. The Democratic party is not a pro-slavery
party?it is neither pro-slavery nor anti-slavery."
Mr. Breckinridge here declares that he is con
nected with no party that desires to prevent the
people of a State or Territory from deciding for
themselves whether sltgery shall or shall not be
introduced Into the Territory, and that he voted
for the Kansas-Nobraska bill because it acknow
ledged the right of the people of the Territory to
settle the question of tho admission or prohibi
tion of slavery themselves. That's squatter sov
General Cass, who congratulated the Senate on
the triumph of squatter sovereignty" ou the
occasion of tho passage of the Kansas Nebraska
bill, was tho next speaker after Mr. Breckinridge,
but of his speech wo have as yet seen no notice.
If it be published, we undertake to predict, sms
the Nashville Bander, that the Kansas-Nebraska
bill will be highly commended, because it recog
nises the doctiine of squatter sovereignty.
Of John Van Buren's specch, also, we have as
yet seen no report. If published, we venture to
predict it will contain no retraction or withdrawal
of anv anti-slavery sentiment he ever littered?no
retraction or withdrawal of anything coutained in
the following extracts from the Address, which
ho prepared and presented for adoption, ot the
Radical fietiitrcracy of New York, assembled in
State Convention at Utica, In February, 1848. In
that Address he says :
"Thirdly, The Democracy of New York do now
and have always heretofore believed in the wi?
dom, humanity, and constitutionality of the policy
of endeavoring to limit tho evils of slavery, by
protecting the unsettled territories of tho United
States against its introduction while they are
under a Territorial Government. So believing,
they will, when any such Governments are estab
lished by Congress, either for the territories we
note possess, or for suih as we may acquire from
Mexico, insist, as far afc we have the right and the
means to do so, that this ancient, successful' and
time-honored policy shall be applied to them"
We have italicised one of the clauses, as also
one in the following extract from the eaino Ad
" But to demand of the citizens of this great
State that after we have, by seasonable action and
what was at the time, though erroneously, re
garded as a great eacrihcc, succeeded in abolishing
slavery from its borders, they should at this day,
in the middle of the nineteenth century, in full
view of the improved opinion of almost all man
kind upon the subject*?of the inestimable and in
calculable advantage in the increase and prosper
ity of our State, in no Bmall degree attributable to
this very exemption?make themselves parties,
either expressly or virtually, by action or inaction,
to the original Institution of slavery by force in
Territories which are now exempt from it, is most
Further on in the same address he says :
? Not Is it true hi any sense that we are introdu
cing any hew principle.' The principle of resistance
to the Institution of slavery is as old as the princi
ple of the existence of man. There is not a human
being, whatever he may say, whatever may be his
local or sectional prejudices, that does Hot know Or
acknowledge that the traffic hi human flesh is a
disgrace to any people Claiming any particle of I
civilization or Christianity. The add resit I had the
honor to report goes on to show that this common
principle of humanity has been the acknowledged
rule of action of the Republican party of the Union
until a very recent time. That while the Democ
racy of this State, under the lead of the patriot,
Tompkins, decided to abolish slavery as an evil
and disgrace to the Slate, the patriots of tho South
heartily and cheerfully united with them in all
measures which had the limitation of slavery for
their object and the melioration of that institution
for their end. It has, however, suited the purposes
of politicians of the present day to set up a new
test, and to declare that this great principle shall
be abandoned at the approaching Presidential elec
tion, and they calculate on the love of office to
sway the Republicans of this State, and to secure,
by the exercise of the patronage of the *rieral
Government, a majority in the Natioi
tion, who will nominate a candidate iu accordance
with their views." * ? . ..
Here is another " elegant extract from
same address: t . .
?? j,Tow I am free to say for myself, and as
have already said to the members of this Conven
tion I say so with the more freedom because it is
of no kind of consequence what my action may
be that I have never entertained bat one opinion
in regard to the traffic in human flesh, and buying
and selling live bodies ; and that is an unqualified
aversion and disgust for it; and while I would
give to those States where it exists the security
which the Constitution has given to it, the mo
ment they step an inch beyond this, they attract
i the public attention and invite * diacuaaion of the
evils of slavery. They do so unwiaely, and I re
gret it; but when they do so, the fioo white peo -
pie of this State will disc una and condemn it. The
idoa of marching, in the 10t>h century, with the
immense power of this free Republic, upon an en
feebled and half-civilized people and forcing upon
Ihem the institution of slavery which they rejecr,
and make it a fundamental article of a treaty of
peace that they shall be guarded against, is so re
pugnant to my sense of what is due not merely to
the superior magnitude and strength of our own
country but ho disgraceful to our free institutions,
aud so pregnant with evil to the people of both
countries that, If I could be satisfied that this war
is prosecuted to plant human slavery in Mexico,
devoted though I am to the glory, honor, welfare,
and progress of theso United States in every
breath of ray life, in every fibre of my system, bo
help me God, I would join the Mexicans to-morrow
in resisting such oppression. [Applause.] Not
only this, but I would pledge myself to recruit
among the freemen of this State armies, while the
Kingdom of Polkdora was recruiting single men."
Further in the same Addrtss this Democratic
Tippecanoe orator and warm supporter of Mr.
Buchanan, after speaking of the time and labor
required to make the people fully comprehend
the nature and bearings of questions of trade and
finance, said :
" But go to them on a question about buying
and selling a body, a question which overrides all
legislative or executive grants of power, or discus
sion, as to their true boundaries, all questions of
local interests, and comes down to the human be
ing himself, if you cannot in&ke the people believe
that it is Democratic to resist the extension of hu
man slavery, It is better to abandon politics and
adopt Eomo other mode of serving your fellow
In a speech made in the city of New York, du
ring the campaign of 1848, he declared that he
would 14 draw a cordon of free States about the
South he would "light the fires of freedom all
arouud them," and that the doughfaces would find
?that the whip held over their backs was in tho
hands of the freemen of the North."
In the same speech he declared that the doctrino
of restricting slavery by the action of Cougress
"had been sanctified by evory administration from
Washington down to Polk, and that was about as
far down as you could get."
It is in perfect consistency with theso recorded
sentences on the subject of slavery that John Van
Buren now supports Mr. Buchanan on the common
ground of squatter sovereignty. In the courso of
a speech made by him in the city of New York, in
which he gave in his cordial adhesion to the Cin
cinnati platform and nominees, he said :
" I am told that, in looking at the resolutions of
that Convention, they have been able to discover
that they pledge the Democratic organization to
tho extension of slavery to fVeo territory. I have
read these resolutions carefully, and, with what
littlo intelligence I have been able tc apply to
them, I can find no such thing in them. I offer a
reward now, to any of these highly intelligent Re
publican gentlemen, to point me, not to an outrage
in Kansas, not to a scuffle in Washington, uot to
uu improper 5newspaper article, but to a lino or
sentence in the Cincinnati resolutions which advo?
cates or encourages the extension of slavery to free
In the same speech he further says:
" You are well nwaro that as a national publicity
is given to my remarks, when 1 speak in this con
fidential way, [laughter,] it is quite as well I
should say what would not injure Mr. Buchanan at
the South, and what would not injure him at tho
North, and, therefore, in the present state of the
subject, I do not deem it necessary to consider the
question whether it would make a slave or a free
Further on iu the same speech he says:
"I think proper to say, that while I greatly dis
approve the repeal of the prohibition of slavery ia
that Territory, yet as a constitutional act, Congrces
had a right to repeal it, if they chose so to do.
They had the power to do it. There wero not 100
people In the Territory when it was done. They
threw open the settlement of tho great Territories
of Kansas and Nebraska, and there are now some
40,000 or 60,000 people there, invited under a
constitutional act, to excrcise the right of self-gov
ernment. Tho people who arc there are the
people who are to determine the destinies of that
State. They have a right to do it urder the Kan
sas act, and they have a right to do it independent
of the Kansas act, perhaps."
The people of Kansas, ho says, have the right
now, while in a territorial condition, to exclude or
admit slavery as they may choose.
Thus upon the common, anti-slavery ground of
squatter sovereignty, do we find the Van Burens,
father and son, with a long train of FreeBoil?Buf
falo Platform coadjutors of 1848, going heart and
soul for the election of Mr. Buchanan.
Speech of lion* Sir. Cullen.
The Philadelphia News publishes the following
sketch of ft speech delivered by tho Hon. Mr.
Cullen, of Delaware, at an American meeting held
last week in that State :
The Hon. E. D. Cullen, of Essex county, ap
peared before his constituents, for tho first time
I since the adjournment of the House of Represent
j atives, of which he was a member. Mr. C. went
! on to state that he was elected by the Americans,
at the first election in tho State of Delaware where
the American party took an interest. Said he, we
had always been divided by the old rotten parties,
battled against each other for the spoils. He saw
the necessity for reform. The people of Essex
took mo upon trust, by electing me to Congress,
as an American. You asked mo no questions,
whether I was a Democrat or Whig. I was proud
to carry out your ideas and wishes.
Upon my first entrance into the Legislative
Hall, at Washington city, I found there were three
parties in Congress?the Democrats, the Republi
cans, and tho Americans. The Democrats claimed
to be the old partv of Jackson?the American
party hold forth no such obsolete ideas, they
stand upon their own foundation.
In the year 1863, over 600,000 foreigners arriv
ed in the city of New York, fleeing from a th.al
don worse than negro slavery?they had not of
?ourse the rights of freemen?they knew nothing
about free institutions and self-government, and
ret in a short five years, they attempt to claim
the highest degree of liberty, by knocking Amer
ican citizens down, in the most gross and licen
tious manner?thinking that was liberty?they
knowing nothing of genuine liberty.
If I had never been an American, and had gone
to Washington, and seen the 1,200 persons em
ployed around the Capitol extension, &c., 1 would
have joined the party immediately, for of that
but one was an American. This Is the way in
which foreigners enjoy the fruits of American la
bor, to the detriment of American mechanics. We
are all willing to let foreigners come over to this
country and enjoy the liberties of our govenimeut,
but we want to hold the reins of government, aa
we do not wish aliens to ride rough-shod over us.
Go to Philadelphia, New York, and all the large
Eastern cities, and see the emigrants. They vote
for the Democracy first and last Thc? aP?
American citizens as their natural enem^?"d
