Charge of Conspiracy yo Defraud ,
the Public.?Charles Weeks has been 1
held to bail in Philadelphia, to answer the
charge of being connected with George
Weeks in a conspiracy to defraud the
public, by publishing a literary work
called the Ladies' Literary Journal, pur-,
porting is be edited by Ella Wentworth, j
at one dollar per year, in advance. It is
alleged that ladies were employed to can- [
vass for it at one dollar per day, in ad-1
vance with a certain percentage when the
subscriptions reached a certain sura.? j
Mrs. Weeks, wife of George Weeks, testi- ;
fied that she had been married between j
five and six years, and that she had been '
sent on to Washington to ';obtain subseri
bers from members of Congress for llie
Ladies' Journal. She also visited IJalu-1
more, and obtained several subscriptions.;
During l.er nbsencc. Osorgo had gone off ?
vitJi a Miss Jiliza Klla Weeks, who was j
also one of the canvassers, and who re- j
presented herself as George's wife, and
they are new in New York. Charles was
left in charge of the office, and hence his i

Gen. GAUinxLDi's Ship.?The Newcas-1
tie (Eng.) Chronicle notices the arrival j
of Gen. Garibaldi, the Italian patriot, in l
the river Tyne, in charge of a handsome, j
full rigged clipper ship, named the Com- j
monweallh, which, it says, "belongs to
American owners." The Commonwealth
is a Baltimore ship, and sailed from this
poit in command of General Garibaldi,
wlio.it was understood, purchased her
here on his own account, in December
last. The Chronicle adds:
"The admirers of the Italian republi
can intended lo pay some public marks of j
respect to so illustrious a representative I
of their opinions; but, with the modesty,
peculiar lo his disposition, Garibaldi pre
ferred to appear in the Tyne, simply as
the master of an American merchant ves
sel. The Commonwealth will leave the
Tyne for Genoa. Garibaldi's birth place,
and the scene of some of his exploits du
ring the revolution. He will appear there
as an American citizen, and under the
proteciion of the American flag."
Stealing Seamen.?All sorts of plans
are resorted to at the present lime in
New York, it is said, to gel men to man
the various ships outward bound. The
sum of forty-five dollars is paid for the
trip to Liverpool?which is an average
pay of $3 per day. This price and a
high advance, fails to supply the demand,
and a system of sailor-stealing has been
established by men who are well paid,
boarding every foreign vessel that arrives,
and inducing the men to ship with them,
and before the captains are aware of it,
they have sailed out of port.
The Hulsemakn Lettkr.?It is now
stated that Mr. Everett denies the report
which attributes to him the authorship of
the Hulsemann letter. The entire story
about his trip to Boston and correspon
dence with Fletcher Webster is without
foundation. Mr. Webster consulted with
him in reference to the letter, but he has
never pretended that it was written by
Later from Havana.?The steamer
Crescent City has arrived from New Or
leans via Havana, the 4th. She brings
i04 passengers.
The Captain General had recently been
makii^j a tour of all the fortifications, and
it was ascertained that 306 guns could be
mounted in 2d hours. It was rumored
that provisions were being carried into
the Cubana at night, and that blasts are
being drilled. The number of troops on
the Island are near fourteen thousand.?
The naval force consists of twenty-two
vessels, chiefly small steamers. No bu
siness was doin^ at Havana, it beinsr Ho
ly Week.
The Richmond Examiner contra
dicts the report that the resignation of Mr.
Daniel, Charge at Sns4l;iiu, had been re
ceived at Washington.
A Large Pike.?We have been luxu
riating the last few days upon afine large
Pike fish, caught in the Little Kanawha,
weighing 22 pounds, and measuring four
feet in length.
End of the Oakland Tragedy.?The
grand jury of the present term of court,
refused to find a true bill against Corneli
us Johnson, charged with the killing of
Dr. Conn, at Oakland, on the 10th day
of February last. The witnesses in the
cnie were discharged from further atten
dance, and Johnson's bail released.

The Celebrated Patent Co-!
nical Burr Stone Mill.
TIIESE mills nro adapted for all the usual
erindin*, and may bo propelled by Wa
ter, Steam, Wind or Horse-Power, "and will do
its work with great rapidity and perfection, and
may bo pnt up and kept in order by almost any
person. It is a perfect Grist Mill in miniature,
and is undoubtedly the cheapest and best Mill
ever offered to the public. These mills are not
made of Iron and Steel, whicli soon become dull
hv use. and tl>en cannot be sharpened, again, but
of the best FRENCH BURR STONE, which is
but little afiected by use, and when it does be
come dull it can easily be sharpened by the far
mer himself.
They are durable, not liable to get out of or
der, and can be driven with less power than any j
other kind of Mills.
To the above Mills have been awarded at dif
ferent times FORTY-SEVEN PREMIUMS, in
cluding a Gold Exhibition Medal, Certificate,
and copy of the Reports of Juries by tlf > Royal
Commissioners of the WorldTs Fair, held at Lon
don in 1S51.
There are live sizes of these Mills, ranging
from alland-Mill, to one suitable for large Mer
chant Mills, and capable of grinding from three
to eight bushels of Wheat or corn, and from six to
fifteen bushels of feed, an liottr.
Any number of certificates erf the utility of
these Mills, might be given, bnt we onljr publish
theTollowing. The Mill of ^ r. Barb is of the
second size, and coats only $100,

Mr.. ZuitiEL Lewis, Dear Sir :?I take pleasure
in info; rning you that I have so far tested the
Conical Burr Stone Mill that you have putin
operation for me, and 1 can assure ycm that it
more than sustains your recommendations, as I
have ground fouk bushels of Corn into fine meal
in less than fifty minutes, and I believe thai I
can with four good horses grind five bushels of
corn in an hour. Two horses willdo a tolerable
business, but three or four will do bettor. My
customers generally, are well pleased with the
meal they get from my mill, and say that it is
superior to any that they have evorliad from any
other mill. I ain fully satisfied that if tho val
ue of these mills was generally known, that they
would soon go into general use. They can be
kept in order by almost any person. 1 will just
say that my opiniou in regard to those mills,
corresponds with the certificates from many oth
ers who are using them.

I Mr. Zliuel Lewis, Dear Sir:?At your re
qucstand my pleasure, 1 do not hesitate to give
you my opinion of Chas. Ross' Conical Burr
Stone Mills. One of these Mills, No. 4 in size,
has been attached to the ongino in a eoopftr's shop,
in which I ain interested, where it has been liu
iy tried, and worked well, and I am satisfied
made the best corn meal I ever saw, and as far as
I know, has given satisfaction to all who have
tried it. Yours, Truly, _
important to millers.
Rochester, Feb. 11 1S.>3. (
Having heard many statements prejudicial to,
your Patent Conical Mills, the resultofignorance '
and prejudice, I confess I was unfavorably im
pressed for a long time, until I had used fonie
llour made by them, when I was convinced that
they were capable of making as good or better
i llour than I had ever had from any other kind
| of Mills. Now this is to eortify that I have in
: my basement, No. 1 Buffalo street, two run of
! your Conical Mills, with which I have made,
i within the last four months, a large quantity of
! flour, from an average of four bushels and 12
J pounds of wheat to tho barrel, one-half of which
! passed for extra in the city of New-York, the
other half for superfine. 1 have dono this to
satisfy myself as to the yield. I believe your
1 Mills require not more than one-half as much
power as the fiat stones, to do the same amoun
of business. They also grind cool, consequently
the color is better and more pure, and the flour
brighter, the fermenting properties of tho flour
not having been injured ; also having more
strength, and absorbs a largor quantity of water
when made into bread, than flour made by the
fiat stone. Yours, Rcspoetfnilv,
To Charles Ross.
New IIaven, Conn., Sept. Gtli. 1S50.
Mr. Charles Ross, Rochester, Sir :?In reply
to your letter on tho subject of your Mill, I have
to say, that I have, under tho direction of the
Ooinmisary General of the U. S. Arm}*, General
Gibson, on re hosed several of them, with horse
powers, ooltcrs, Ac.i complete, forwarding them
to Mexico, California, Oregon and Texas, for use
] in connection with the army. The Mill is found
i to answer every purpose required of a grinding
! Mill is easily kept in order, grinds rapidly, and
j of such degree of fincnoss or coarseness as may
! be desired/ It can be adjusted readily to any
I kind of horse or water power, is portable, of
small compass, of light weight and not exnen
sive. 1 regard the Mill as. eminently well adop
ted to both Arinv and Navy, xis well as to fron
tier use, also u'oll calculated to enable the grow
er of grain to make his own flour. For the
grinding of spioics, coffee, tfce., on a large manu
facturing scale, it an wers a good purpose. I had
one of your Mills put up at Gen. Taylor's head
quarters at Montory, in Mexico. It worked well.
1 found it to bo perfect in all its parts and fea
