Wilmington, N. O., June 16,1854. To persons who have have had the sight of their ? yes so impaired as to require the nee of Glasses, 1 vvould recommend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable per son from whom to obtain such Glasses as they may enquire, as he has suited me with a pair of Spectaoleb tor a far and near sight. My sight has been impaired *?ry much by a service of years ib the Post Office Department, which berth required rue to be on duty from 11 o'clock at night till after day, during which ime 1 used but one light. W. A. WALKER. Bkookxtk Ohtbopahdic Institution, April, 1854. After most careful examination of Mr. J. Tobias's Glasses, 1 am enabled to testify that their hardnesn, cl. .mess, polishing, : nd exact optical shape, render them particularly re^ommendaole to those whose merely optical impa rment ol the eyes are in want of ucb auxiliaries. I consider, moreover, Mr. Tobias . ullv qualified to determine the focus of th? eye, both bv his optical Knowledge and experience, and by jr.eans of his optometer. In addition, 1 can further Kiuite that Mr. Tobias has supplied some of my pa tients wnii Glasses, to their and my satisfaction. LOUIS BAD BR, M.

Ellis, (lave editor:) " l' aving suffered for many years past with weak ness of the eyes, and that defect of vision which re sults frpm 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 osme beads this article. We saw them reoommend ad by suadry gentlemen of Virginia, whom we know, and thai efore had less hesitation iu making th* ex periment. We are more than pleased with the arti cle. We read with leas fatigue with these lens than , uy ws hsd ever tried before; and we see more dis .iuctly nth 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." Ltncdburo November 1,1854. From an examination of Mr. Tobias's Glasses and fro a his observations snd remaarka, am convinoed that he is a skilful optician. J. J. BLACKFORD, M. D. NOrtolk, Va., July 27,1884. in the expense* of even two years, I have found great difficulty in obtaining Spectacles that ware ex actly adapted to the weakneas of my sight This in convenience Mr. Tobias seems to nave removed for the present by the substitution for me of better and more suitable Glasses. They are clear, chrystal-like, and oomfbrtable to my eyee. I would commend him to those who, from sge or othei infirmity, require artificial aid in this way. J. J.SIMKINS M. D. Sta: The pair ot Spectacles yon furnished ma yes terday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are vary decidedly the best I possess, and I am the owner it eight or nine uairs, carefully selected in different places, and from opticians recommended to me on ac -onnt of their professional standing in France Eng land, and t. e United States. I have been also pleased with your marks and directions on the treatment of the eyes .ci the purpose of preserving and impro * tog tho sight. Respectfully yours, CHS. CALDWELL. Pmfaasor of M.

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 sensed! shame or dread of discovery deters him from apply ing to those who, from eduoation and respectability can alone befriend him, delaying till the constitution' al symptoms of this horrid disease make their ap pe ranee, such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose nocturnal pains in the head and limbs, dimness of sight deafnens, nodes on the shin bones and arms blotches on the head, face, and extremities, pro<rres-' sing with frightful rapidity, till, at last, the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose fell in, and the victim of this awful disease bccomes a horrid object ofoomraisseration.till death puts a period to his dread ful sufferings by sending him to ''that bourne from whence no traveller returns."

It is the old Kremlin ft-*, which you see old Moscow?the greater part of ir just forty yearn old. From the terrace beneath tie Filiate of the Czar one does indeed behold a snr ?iJh 8 ?k ?f the P?Lwer and vitality of national faith in the scene which is before him. The onlv other city in the world which bears the most ro rs ref?D,blfnc? to Moscow is Constantinople, i.1 u8i- e 0 neitlier nor steep bills which forms so important an element In the effect of'the 1 urkish capital, tho a?sociation of Ideas which makes yon think of the former as you stand on the esplanade of the Kremlin, must be sought tor in the innumerable minaret-like towers The most striking feature of the city is,'indeed the number and singular shape of the cupola*' which are placed on towers or pillars, slender ard tall, hke minarets, springing up from the sides or bodies of the churches. They are bulbous in form the broad end downwards; and from the apex there is always a lofty cross, richly gilt or plated. These crosses are always placed In the concaves of arge crescents; and it is said that the Tartars, on their victorious forays into Russia, put these Cres cents on the summits of the crosses, and that tho Russians on the defeat of tho Tartars, reversed that order of position. These cylinders, surmount ed by cupola?, must assuredly be of oriental origin just as the churches are copied from the Byzan tine, modified by the fantasy of the Italian and German architects of the middle ages, who ran not in brick and woodwork invention, unrestrain ed by any canons of taste or fear of criticism The churches are, for the most part, very small, and contain only a few hundred people each, but this n accounted for by the coldness of the climate which presents great difficulties to the Russian ar! chitect, who desires to keep his congregation worm and comfortable In winter. Besides this, the more churches the more p-iests?an important influeuce in determining the reuaon why there are three or four or five churches In Moscow where one would do any where else. Many of these churches are surround ed at the summit with pi!Jar-like towers, each sur mounted with a pear-shaped cupola, on the top of which there is a crescent supporting a cross, and from the midst of these towers there rises a large dome, on the summit of which a shortc; and larcer indwo ereCted' bearinK a'oft its cupola, crcsceut are frequently added to the churches lofty * "?8- ?m*"y 8taSv"> 8011,0 of them conical, terminating in small cupolas mid crosses I highly ornamented j indeed, the infinity and diversity of form of these belfries, minarets, domes, cupolas and spires a~e quite perplexing, and defy analysis. The huge crosses and crescents are invariably richly gilt or plated, and the dornos and cupolas are very fre quently decorated in the same expensive manner Some of the crosses have large gilt chains attached to the extremities and secured to the bulbous cu polas beneath. The domes, instead of gilding or plating, are cow and then painted green, uPra-ma "De- ?r deoP P^e, and the color is glazed, so that it reflects the light from the metal covered dome. Others are quaintly carved like gigantic pine-aoples, the facets being colored differently one gilt, the other ultra-marine?presenting a most curious appearance in the sun's rays. The centre of this sea of green roofs, crested with domes and spires which flash like diamonds, is the Kremlin the most singular collection of churches, palaces belfries, arsenals, treasuries, curiosities, galleries' barracks, and parade grounds, in the world?the soul of Moscow, which is the soul of Russia. In former days the whole of Moscow was con tained within its walls, but now it is reserved for the Imperial recidonce and Court, and for the gu*u att.enda?ce <>n the Emperor. The walls which vary in height according to the undulations ot the ground, describe an irregular polygon, of which the angles are marked by towers, and the top of the wall is crenelated, but there is little appearance of antiquity about them, for they are built of brick, and the whitewash has disappeared in places, and leaves the red brickwork exposed to view. Indeed, nearly every house in Moscow is built of brick, with foundations of a calcarei. l. stone, or of wood. The brick is always covert..! with stucco, which is painted buff, white, lemon, or rose color, and this gives to the city a clean,' | bright appearance, which is marred by the dirty state of the streets after rain. At a distance the view is enchanting by day; by night, the aspect of the city is mo?t strange and beautiful.? London Times. Political Sermons Repudiated. , PHii.ADKiFnfA, Nov. 4.?The congregation of the Church of the Epiphany (Protestant Episcopal) ?f if" ect'on *? decide the question whether the Vestry should be sustained in the rebuke given to the Pastor, Rev. Dudley A. Tyng, for preaching a political sermon some time since. The vote stood for the Vestry B7, against 44. This involves the resignation of the Pastor agree ably to his determination previously announced, that if not sustained by the congregation he would resign. Many of those who voted against the Ves try did so out of attachment to the Pastor, whilst they disapproved of the course he had seen fit to pursue. The splendid Cleveland bay, imported by Mr Wm. C.
