Any transient matter, like a circular or handbill, inclosed in or with a periodical or newspaper sent to a subscriber, or to any other person, subjects the whole package to letter postage; and whenever subject to letter postage from being sealed or from any cause whatever, all printed matter, without exception, must be prepaid or excluded from the mail, it i s the duty of the postmaster at the mailing office, ns well ns at the oflice of delivery, carefully to examine all printed matter, in order to see that it is charged with the proper rate of postage and to detect fraud At offices where postage stamps can not be procured, postmasters arc authorized to receive money in prepayment of postage on transient matter, but they should be careful to keep a supply of stamps on hand. 4. it is no part of the duty of a postmaster to receive and deliver to subscribers any oth er newspaper than those which come in mail, or to put the address on newspapers sent to clubs,or to deliver them from a furnished list; nor should he do either, even through cour tesy, unless it may be done without interfer ing with the legitimate business of his office.

I.VFFI •/_A7c’SS. f IMIE ingratitude of man to his fellow man is so I often met with in life that testimonials, prompted liy the liner feelings of the heart are oasis in the life of those who sacrifice their best days in philanthropic devotion to the alleviation of the ills of frail mortality. Empiricism Hoods the columns of our press with fraudulent and ficti tious letters, singing peans to the worth of their own egotistical charlatanism. Below we append u letter from a worthy man who. a brief period since, seemed destined to-shuffle off this mortal coil,’ who looked forward to his dissolution w ith that pleas ure which only thosi weighed down by the heavy hand of disease can. Contrary to hope, the ability of a skillful physician lias restored him to bis for mer health. Relieved from his terrible situation, and impelled by gratitude, he makes known his case and remedial agent, and Ids statement is an then tied ted by a Notary I’nhlic, The demands of society imperiously command its publicity, and it is given more to Warn the unwary than to sound the praises of a physician of whom scores of like cases can be cited: CERTIFICATE Tiie undersigned desirous of acquainting those who may be unfortuuate enough to be sim ilarly afflicted, where a permanent relief of their sufferings may be obtained, feels it his duty to thus publicly express his most sincere gratitude to Dr. L. Czapkay for the permanent recovery of his health. Borne down by the distressing symp toms incident to the vicious practice of uncon trollable passion in youth; depressed in body and mind, unable to perform even the most trifling duty imposed upon the daily a\ ovations of life; I sought the advice of many physicians, who at first regarded my disease as of trifling importance but alasl after n few weeks, and in several instances months of their treatment, 1 found to my unutter able horror that instead of relief, the symptoms became alarming In their torture; and, bidug told by one tlml my disease, being principally confined to the brain, medicines would be of little conse quence, 1 despaired of ever regaining my health, strength and energy: mid as a last resort, and with but a faint hope, called upon Dr. Czapkay, who af ter examining my ease prescribed some medicine which almost instantly relieved me of the dull pain and dizziness in my head. Encouraged by this result, 1 resolved to place myself immediately under his care, and by a strict obedience to all his directions and advice, my head became clear, mv ideas collected, tiie constant pain in my back and groins, the weakness of my limbs, the nervous re action of my whole body on the slightest alarm or excitement: the misanthropy and evil forebodings; the incapability to study and want of resolution: the frightful, exciting, and at times pleasurable dreams at night, followed by involuntary dis charges. have all disappeared; and in fact in two months after having consulted the Doctor. I felt ns if inspired by a new life—that life which, but a short time ago. I contemplated to end by my ow n hand. With a a lew to guard the unfortunate from fall ing into the snares of incompetent quacks, I deem it my duty to offer this testimony to the merit amt skill of Dr. Czapkay, and recommend him to all wlio are in need ot medical advice, lieiug assured by my experience, that once under his care u radi cal and permanent cure w ill be effected.

THANKFULNESS Is the incentive to gratitude. Below we publish the volutury certificate of two of the sufferer* from the pangs of disease, who, having recovered their former health, and impelled by gratitude, make know n their cases and the remedial agent; and their statements are authenticated liy a Notary Public. The demands of society imperiously command their publicity, and we commend their perusal to the attention of those afflicted. CERTIFICATE. I, the undersigned, having been under the treat ment of Dr. L. J. Czapkay, although unsolicited, feci called upon to give publicity to the efficacy of his treatment, hoping that by so doing. I may be instrmeiital In preventing others from the fearful suffering and misery which I experienced, and which so often result from the pernicious practice of pretenders. My disease has been that of physi cal and mental debility, which follows in conse quence of the indiscretion of youth. The agonies which 1 endured ore, perhaps, unnecessary for me to detail: they are known to those w ho have expe rienced them. Suffice it to say, that having called the s-rvices of Dr. L. J. Czapkay in requisition, all my expectation* which I may hav* formed of him were more than realized, I would, therefore, recommend Dr. Czapkay to ail who may find tliem seives afflicted with that dreadful malady, my ob ject in so doing being sympathy for suffering hu manity. and a heartfelt desire of relieving them.

In witness whereof I have hereunto not my band and affixed my official seal, the day and year find above written. W. C. JEWETT, [t*. s.] Notary Public. A CARD. Prompted by an honest desire of my heart. I wish to lay before the public a case which d.-serves a high commendation, nut only as an act of scientific skill, but that of humanity also. About two years ago, I suddenly, and from causes unknown tii me, was seized with a fit of epilepsy, which. , wing to my inability to meet the expenses consequent upon a thorough medical treatment, ami the disconrago ment which I met with on attempting it, soon be came such (ns I was then led to believe) as to defy the skill of a physician. I was frequently, while iii pursuit of my culling, thrown down to the ground without the slightest warning, and although insen sible to the agonies, 1 yet despised the miseries of life, ami soon learned to look upon those who would render me assistance or shelter ran from danger as enemies, who sought to prolong the misery of ray existence. While in this state, ami having previ ous to my affliction tasted the sweets of life, i was once more induced to attempt seeking aid of a phy sician, and by recommendation called upon Dr. L. J. C/.apkay. I told him my circumstances ami my inability to reward him for his services, regardless of whieh, however, he at once undertook mv case, and. with the blessings of God, I was once more re stored to perfect health. Unable to reward him for the Imon w hich I enjoy at present, and yet conscious of my indebtedness, i consider it due to myself and to all afflicted, to make the case public, in order that those in need of medical advice may find a physician in w hom every confidence may be placed.
