PROSPECTUS.
Mr. N. If. WEBSTER proposes to give a course
of Lectures on the highly useful anti interesting
Science of Astronomy, designed expressly for the
instruction of youth.
The terms of admission to the Lectures, which
will he given every afternoon at -I o’clock, at the
Academy, will be for Six Lectures, only Fifty

It is confidently believed that a better knowledge
of Astronomy may be gained by attending these
lectures, than by years of study in the ordinary
inode of recitations. And it is the object of this
course to give to nil, especially pupils of other
school--, an opportunity of sharing in the advanta
ges of a superior Astronomical Apparatus, at such
times, and on such terms that all may attend.
All the important principles of the science will

ving diagrams. All the Planets with their Moons
will be represented moving in their proportionate
velocities, and at their relative distances. The
Moon will be shown moving round the Earth while
the Earth is revolving round the Still. The causes
of the Seasons—of I> ty and Night—of the Tides
and nil Astronomical appearances, will be shown
and explained in such a manner that all will be
aide fully to understand them.
The first Lecture will be on MONDAY, the 17th

A MAGNETIC FLUID.—This remarkable dis
covery has re< eived the universal approbation of
the Medical Profession of Great Britain, an l has
been sufficiently long before the American public
to give a fair trial of its power and efficacy. The
PATENT GALVANIC RINGS have been found to
answer all the purposes for which ordinary Galvan
ic Battery or Electric and Magnetic Machines are
used, but are. without any of the injurious shocks
which accompany the applications by those instru
ments, and in many other respects arc more safe
anti certain in accomplishing the desired object.
The Galvanic Rings have been used with perfect
success in all case sol Rheumatism, acute or chron
ic, applying to the hear!, face or limbs ; Gout, Tic
Dolorcux. Toothache, Bronchitis, VertT'gn. Nervous
or Sick Headache, Indigestion, Paralysis, Palsy
Epilepsy. Fits, Cramp, Palpitation oftin Heart,
Apoplexy. Stiffness of Joints, Lumbago. Neuralgia.
General Debility. Deficiency of Nervous Energy
and all Nervous Disorders. In cases of confirmed
Dyspepsia they have been Successful. Their extra
ordinary i fleets upon the system must bu witnessed
to be believed; and as a certain preventive for
the above complaints they are equally to he recom
mended. The Galvanic Rings are in every way
perfectly harmless, anrl are sold at prices to t.e
within the reach of all. Cristie’b Magnetic Ft.vtn
is used in connection with the Rings, to render
their < ffieient action certain, and to direct the Gal
