THIRTY-THIRD CONORKSS? FIRST SESSION. House of Representatives, April 21, 1854 The Speaker laid before the House a com munication from the Treasury Department, transmitting certain papers relating to tho oon striMtion of a Marine Hospital ut San Francis co ; which were laid on the table, and ordoied to he printed. The Senate bill awarding one hundred thou nand dollars to the discoverer of practical-an esthesia, (use of uhlorio ether in surgery, &o. ) wan taken up, and, aftor a protracted and ir rogular debate, Mr. Hamilton, of Maryland, Htuted that there were noma half dt i&en claimants, Messrs Morton, Jackson, Nicholson, and others ; that the write at. law, to determine tho rightful claimant, would have to bo conducted at the expense of the Government; and tliat he thought it would ho hotter to give the huiu named to some party or other, than to entor upon this unknowu sea of trouble. He con cluded by moving that the bill should be re ferred to the Committee of Claims, and called for the previous question. Mr. J ones, of Tennessee, moved that it be laid upon the table; which motion prevailed? yeatt 82, naya 46. Reports from the Committee on the Poet Of fice and Poet Roads being called for, Mr. McOougal reported a bill to establish a weekly mail between tho Atlantic States and San Franoisco; which, on bin motion, waa post poned to the first Monday in Juno, and ordered to be printed. ? Tho Hourc then resolved itself into Commit tee of the Whole, and*proceeded to the consid eration of bills upon the private calendar. Makinu it the Test.?Not merely the man date of the Washington Union, but tho long and tailored editorials of the Patriot, Nashua Gazette, Dover Gazette, Haverhill Republican, and other organs of the Cushing and Pierce dynasty in this State, show clearly that the support of the Nebraska Rill is to be the test" of membership in the Democratic paily. We call the Democrats of this State who now oppose this bill to mark our prcdictiou, viz: that if they do not give in, nnti sustain that measure, they will be read out of the party, as wo were in i860, for opposing tho Fugitive Slave Act. Senator 'Norris, now in this city, (and an ex pectant Judge of the Kansas Territory, in case the bill should pass,) boldly t-ays to his political associates that " it shall bo tho test, and overy Democrat shall bo made to walk up to tho mark."?Manchester (N. II ) Democrat. The Gadsden Treaty.?Tho New York Tribune very properly Bays: " In justice to itsolf and to all parties, tho Senate ought to remove the injunction of so crecy from the debates in Eieoutivo session upon the Gadsden treaty, and give the whole to the-publio, with all the documents and dis closures connected with the matter. It con cerns the honor of the Senate, and the reputa tion of tho President, Secretary of Stato, Gen. Gadsden, and a number of poraons in inferior though influential positions. Let us have lights on theso mysteries.'' Sale of tiie Public Works of Pennsyl vania.?The Philadelphia Evening Rulletin says: " Both Houses of the State Legislature havo passed the bill for the sale of the public im provements. An immense burden of taxation will now bo takon from tho people of tho State, and while the management of tho improve ments may be made much more satisfactory to the travelling and business community, a dan gerous system of distributing officio for political purposes will bo brokeu up. The price fixed lor the works is ten millions of dollars. Wo take it for granted that they will be purchased by the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, to whom they will lie cheap at that rate. If they refuse to make the purchase, it will show an extraordinary blindness to their own iuter ests."

April 16, 1863. CHARLES FRODSOAM. The undersigned, having been appointed sole Agent iu Uie United States for the sale ofCharle* Frodsham a Improved Timekeepers, would respectfully call public attention to his extensive and valuable slock of Com pensated Chronometer Watches, made by Charles Frodsham, and styled his "New Series'* In the Watchea of the new series, Mr. Frodsham has suc ceeded?by a more perfect method of compensation, a more correct adjustment in isochronism, and an en tirely new and |>eculiar construction of the train, by which more power is obtained without increase of site ?in producing timekeepers of wonderful and un rivalled accuracy. The great importance of the im proved Watches is a perfect regularity of time, under every variety of climate, motion, and position. So l>erfect are the adjustments, that the most violent ex ercise?such as horseback riding, jumping, Ac ? pro duce* on then no sensible effect. They are therefore peculiarly adapted to railroad purposes The scientific French critic, Mons. Horaendorf, in his review of the Great London Exhibition of 1861, styles the contribution of Mr Charles Frodsham as "bearing the stamp of peculiar merit, and as being the flower of the English school" The British Government have awarded Messra. Arnold and iTharlea Frodsham the sum of ?3,170, for the excellence of the pnnriple of their timekeepers. One of Mr. Frodsbam'a correspondents writes as follows; Lou Don, April 2fi, 1862.
