Births & Deaths
Birth. Norwalk (Connecticut) Nov. 8. As many of our brother editors appear to be vieing with each other for the credit of giving celebrity to the greatest productions of various domestic articles, we insert the following note which we have just received from a correspondent: "The wife of Mr. AMOS WEED of N. Stamford, was delivered of three fine boys on Monday, the 31st ult. which, together, weighed 20 pounds, and are likely to do well." -- "The Gazette."
Died. At Annapolis, on Sunday evening last, after a short but severe illness, JAMES MUNROE, Esq. Postmaster of that City. In him society has been deprived of one of its most estimable members. His memory will long be cherished and his loss deplored.
Explosion. Philadelphia, Nov. 9. Yesterday morning, between 11 and 12 o'clock, an explosion took place at the extensive establishment called the Nitre Hall Mills, by which the barrel mill and about 2,500 pounds of powder, in it at the time, were blown up. We are happy to learn that no lives were lost, or any persons injured, by the explosion. The shock and report were heard distinctly in this city. The mill was blown up on last New Year's day, and we understand had been rebuilt in a very superior manner.
New York, Nov. 8. The schooner Junius, Captain LEARY, which sailed from this port about the 12th of September, for Alvarado, was wrecked in the beginning of October on the Bahama Banks. Her cargo was insured for $100,000. A part of it reached Nassau, and was sold for $10,000.
New York, Nov. 10. We are favored with an Havana paper of the 23 ult. which gives the particulars of a gale at Trinidad, Cuba, on the 1st, the most violent ever experienced there. Much injury was done to the town and harbor. The brigs Borrell, Pilot, and Union, schooner Lucy, from Baltimore, all with part cargoes on board, with most of the other vessels and small craft, were driven high ashore, said to be near a mile on the land. The Borrell was afterwards attacked by a gang of robbers, but succeeded in beating them off. --"The Merc. Adv."

Cream of Nardus, The Ancient Spikenard. One of the most efficacious and innocent productions ever yet discovered, for making the hair grow thick, long, and glossy, while at the same time it effectually prevents it from turning grey. Ladies and Gentlemen who are desirous of preserving or acquiring that beautiful ornament, a fine head of hair, have only to afford this preparation a fair trial, to be fully convinced of its really being one of the most powerful auxiliaries they could possibly employ for the attainment of their purpose; as it not only admirably promotes the rapid growth of the hair, and prevents it from falling off, but at the same time it perfectly preserves its natural gloss, color, and beauty, even to extreme old age. To artificial tresses, also, it is of considerable service; as it imparts a delicate perfume, gives the gloss of nature, and considerably strengthens the curl, which oils of every description invariably tend to weaken, if not to destroy; but for this purpose it should be used to profusely. The Spikenard of the Ancients - Much difference in opinion has arisen among the curious and the learned as to what the previous ointment was composed of. The late Sir WILLIAM JONES was of opinion that this celebrated ointment was procured from the root of the Valeriana Jatamansi, which is found growing only in India. Mr. LAMBERT tell us, also, in his illustration of the genus Chinchona, that the Valeriana jatamansi is identical with the Spikenard of the ancients, while Mr. PHILLIPS, in his late work on Vegetables, positively asserts that it was made from Lavender, and which, he says, was called Nardus in Greek, from Narda, a city of Syria, near the Euphrates, and that it was also called spica, spike; because, among all the verticillated plants, this alone bears a spike. Prepared and sold by the proprietors, E. HOPKIN & Co., No 83 North Fifth Street, Philadelphia; sold also by WILLIAM GUNTON, Washington City, and by their accredited agents throughout the United States. Price one dollar per bottle.

Patent Thrashing Machine. POPE's Patent Thrashing Machines, for getting out Wheat, Rye, or any other small Grain, are offered for sale by the subscriber, who has at this time two made by a first rate workman, and of the very best materials. These machines are capable of getting out with two horses, at the rate of from 75 to 100 bushels of Wheat per day, as will be seen by the annexed certificates. CARY SELDEN, Agent for the Patentee.
---POPE's Thrashing Machine. The following certificates have been received by the proprietor of this machine, which are presented to the agricultural community for the purpose of confirming the representations heretofore made of its usefulness and capacity:
---Tree Hill, near Richmond, 24th Sept. 1824. This is to certify, that one of POPE's Patent Thrashing Machines (made in Washington) for thrashing wheat has this season thrashed out my crop, consisting of about twelve hundred bushels; and it will get out with two mules, eighty bushels per day, it having done this for three days in succession from purple straw above the ordinary growth (from 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 feet long) - and when worked by the our, it got out 11 bushels, as I am informed by my overseer and others who were present. This machine requires less force to work it than any other I HAVE SEEN. J. M. SELDEN.
--- Curle's on James River, Va. Sept. 1824. Mr. JOSEPH POPE: Dear Sir, In answer to your inquire relative to the performance of your machine made by S. V. MERRICK & Co. for me I have to inform you that it has thrashed an average of 70 bushels of wheat per day, and on examination of the straw after passing through the machine, I found it well thrashed. I think your machine the best now in use for such farmers as make small crops of wheat; it requiring less force to manage, and less power to drive it, than any other machine I have seen. The machines sent to Virginia by S. V. MERRICK & Co. were badly built, the horse-wheel being too small, and the materials too slender to bear the pressure necessary to drive the machine. When these defects are remedied, I feel confident that your machine will succeed. Very respectfully yours, WADE MOSBY, Jus.
---The machines, well made, can be seen and examined on application to CARY SELDEN, Esq., Washington City.

By virtue of power vested in my, by the last will and testament of JOHN SMITH MAGRUDER, late of Prince Georges County, Maryland, I will sell at private bargain, two hundred acres of land, more or less, situated in said county, about half way between the City of Washington and Upper Marlborough, nearly opposite to Middletown. About two thirds of this land abounds with the finest Oak Wood and Timber; the balance contains some improvements of various kinds, and a portion of fine Meadow Land, with a never failing stream of water running through the whole. For terms apply to N. M. McGREGOR, living about three miles distant from the said land; or to the subscriber, in Washington City. CHARLES B. HAMILTON, Trustee.
Land for Sale. The subscriber offers for sale, the farm on which he now resides, in Fairfax County, Virginia, about 800 acres, 300 of which, are in wood, and heavily timbered; the balance, cleared and well situated, being for the most part level and easily cultivated. The soil is of excellent quality, and well adapted to corn, wheat, rye, and grass. Upwards of 100 acres of meadow land, of the very best quality, may be selected on different parts of the farm. So that anyone wishing to establish a grazing and dairy farm, would find this peculiarly suited to his views, being situated immediately on a good turnpike road about 4 miles below Alexandria, and 10 from Washington City, and within two miles of the Potomac River. The improvements consist of a new two-story brick dwelling, comfortably and conveniently arranged, and situated on an eminence which commands a view of the whole farm, and is covered with a grove of beautiful oaks and other forest trees; a brick smoke-house, and a well of excellent water immediately at the door, besides the usual buildings, such as overseer's house, Negro quarters, stable, barn, &c. Two hundred bushels of wheat, and between sixty and seventy of rye, have been sown this fall.

Meetings and Lectures
Washington Encampment. A meeting of the Encampment will be held at the Western Masonic Hall, in this City, on Tuesday Evening next, at early candle light, at which the punctual attendance of the members thereof is particularly requested. By order, JOS. INGLE, Recorder.
Washington Guards! Assemble on Monday next, the 14th instant, at half after one o'clock P.M. on the Post Office ground, completely equipped, parade order. By order, R. G. LANPHIER, 1st Sergt.
Public Notice. A meeting of the citizens of Prince George's county will be held in Upper Marlborough, on Thursday, the 24th inst, at 12 o'clock, for the purpose of appointing seven Delegates to meet in General Convention in the City of Baltimore, in the month of December ensuing, to consider of devise, and recommend, to the General Assembly of Maryland, such measures as they may conceive best calculated to promote the internal improvement of the State, and especially of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal. As no section of the State can be more deeply interested in the object of the proposed meeting than the citizens of Prince George's county, it is to be hoped that the meeting will be generally attended.
An adjourned meeting of the Columbian Institute will be held this afternoon, at 5 o'clock. A. DICKINS, Sec'y.
Medical Department, Columbian College. The Introductory Lectures will commence on Monday the 7th instant, at the Medical College in this city, and will be delivered in the following order: Dr. SEWALL on Monday; Dr. STAUGHTON on Tuesday; Dr. HENDERSON on Wednesday, Dr. WORTHINGTON on Thursday; Dr. CUTBUSH on Friday, Dr. MAY on Saturday.

Agricultural. At the last Annual Meeting of the Pennsylvania Agricultural Society, held at Prospect Hill, in Philadelphia county, almost every one of the premiums for neat Cattle were taken by JOHN HARE POWELL, Esq. who relinquished the whole of them, amounting in value to $295, for the benefit of the Society. This public-spirited gentleman has taken a deep interest in the improvement of the breed of Cattle, and has spared no pains to procure and intermix the most approved descriptions. Of his success the above affords sufficient evidence, especially when it is known that there were upwards of a hundred head of cattle presented for competition. Every animal that obtained a premium, whether belonging to Mr. POWELL or not, was of the breed of "Improved Durham Short Horns, from Mr. POWELL's Stock." These premiums were awarded by disinterested practical farmers, of high standing, and may be considered as the reward of merit. To Mr. POWELL, also, was awarded several of the premiums for Sheep, of the Dishley, Southdown, and Tunistan breeds. JONATHAN ROBERTS, formerly a Senator of the United States, is president of this society, and Dr. WILLIAM DARLINGTON, formerly a Representative in Congress, delivered the Annual Address before it.
Meeting. A special meeting of the Columbia Typographical Society will be held this evening, half past 7 o'clock, at the usual place. A punctual attendance of the members is particularly requested. J. CROSSFIELD, Sec.
ASHER ROBBINS has been elected a Senator of the United States, from the State of Rhode Island, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Mr. D'WOLF. He was opposed by E. R. POTTER and others, but was chosen by a small majority on the first ballot.
JOHN LEE, JOHN McMAHON, and MICHAEL C. SPRIGG, are already announced, in the upper District of Maryland, as Candidates to represent it in the 20th Congress. The present representative, Mr. WORTHINGTON, will, it is presumed, also be a candidate.

Editorials & Commentary
Patent Brick Kiln. Those gentlemen (and my friends in particular) who have taken so lively an interest in the success of my Patent Brick Kiln, are requested to suspend their opinions thereon, until they have an opportunity of reading my letter to, and the report of the committee, which will be printed in pamphlet form, and may be had free of expense to them, and for twenty-five cents by its enemies; and, without boasting much, I am not afraid to assert, that it will throw more useful light on the theory and practice of constructing Brick Kilns, and baking Bricks, than any work of the kind that I have yet been able to meet with, not even excepting the scientific and learned Encyclopedias, that it will be interesting both to gentlemen of science, and Brick makers generally; and for the present information of my friends, I will just observe, that under all the concurring circumstances of the case, (and some no doubt were intentional) I can see no just grounds to have expected a more favorable result; and though I have been checked, I was not defeated, though chastened, not case down, (like Damon,) I could not conquer impossibilities, nor surmount a combination of unexpected occurrences, that with me can never again arise, and in the cause of which I had no participation, and which, by not being foreseen, could not be avoided -- and they will no doubt prove a useful beacon to others; and should any of my friends feel desirous o know, and inquire what are my feelings and spirits, I will reply to them in the language of Johnson, to a similar question when his favorite play of "Irene" was damned -- "Like the monument, Sir," was his reply; and so far from being discouraged, or dissatisfied, with the correctness of the principle on which the Kiln is constructed, my opinion in its favor is more firmly established than ever, and so much so, that the Delphian Oracle, if revised, could not possibly shake it; and this is not my opinion only, but that of every well informed and liberal minded Brick maker and gentleman of science who saw it in operation; yet, notwithstanding my ill luck and disappointment, and the consequent temporary crowing and chuckling of its Lilliputian minded enemies, (who never in their lives, had a single idea that projected beyond their nose,) I doubt not but that, with a few alterations -- like the life boat in a storm, it will rise superior to, and overwhelm in one general revolution the Brick Kilns at present in use, with the inveterate, rancorous, and selfish prejudice of its foes, in one common vortex, and that they might as well attempt to oppose the breaking up of the ice, and stop the violence and impetuosity (on those occurrences) of the rivers Ohio, Missouri, St. Lawrence, or the Neva, as to impede the progress of these Kilns; at any rate, those who adopt them cannot be "Yorkshired" or"Yankied" to any great amount, especially as my terms of payment are by the thousand, and they are at liberty to leave off the improvement, when ever they may find it their interest so to do, when all payments to me cease; and if those few enemies alluded to, will permit me to take down the vault, and make the trifling alterations hinted at, and also to use my late improvements in setting and covering a kiln, (which grow out of my late embarrassments,) would wish to back their fancy, (though I am no betting man myself) I will find those who will take them up, for any reasonable sum that I can procure three Potters in the District, besides myself, and of which they may take choice, who shall fire the same kiln again, with not more than 7-1/2 per cent loss in chinkers and salmon ones, with less than one-third of a cord of wood to the thousand, and in not more than 4 days and nights time; and also my favorite size and shaped kiln, 30 by 26, in the clear, with six arches, and forty-five courses high, in 4 days and nights, or, in what I should prefer, three nights and 5 days, without precipitancy, and with not more than 3.8hs of a cord of wood to the thousand, if not less, and with not more loss in bricks than five per cent. And in this item alone, there will be an increased saving of at least 20 per cent, in the quantity of the first rate ones, besides the saving in time and fuel. I will also now apprize the few individuals alluded to, that partly in consequence of their rancorous animosity, I will explain and expose to those who adopt my kilns, the Enigmatical secrets, and Alchemical mysteries, and mist, in which the art of Brick burning is at present enveloped, and that their trade, like that of the shrinemakers, is in danger. I will conclude these remarks, by candidly acknowledging, that I have been considerably annoyed by the barking of the few stupid, avaricious, frightened, curs alluded to, as well as by the buzzing of a few night flies, not such as lulled Henry the Fourth to sleep. But the lion, excepting when uncommonly provoked, never chastises curs, neither "will the eagle catch flies." I have great pleasure in having it in my power to inform my friends that the grates stand admirably, and also that the arches on which the bricks are laid, and which always caused me the greatest fears, are so little injured that I should not be afraid (if made of such materials as I may direct,) of ensuring them to stand a dozen years though burnt in regularly, and with a load of bricks forty-five courses high, or of the heaviest loaded London or Conestoga wagons constantly traveling over them. Respectfully, S. R. BAKEWELL. Those Editors who may have the politeness to insert the foregoing in their respective papers, will not only confer a favor on me, which shall not soon be forgotten, but probably serve and amuse some of their readers who may be engaged in the brick making business.
Mr. OWEN's Views. ROBERT OWEN, of New Lanark, in Scotland, and of Harmony, in these States, published the following address on his arrival, the other day, at New York: "At Sea, New York Packet, Oct. 1825. Americans: I am again hastening to your shores, and I return with fixed determination to exert all my powers for your benefit, and through you for that of the world at large. In your industry, mechanical knowledge, and general enterprise; in the quality and cheapness of your soil; in the extent and variety of your climate; in your liberation, in part, from the prejudices of the old world, but more particularly in the freedom of your government; you amply possess the means to secure immediately the most important private and national benefits, both to yourselves and to your posterity, and to give them to other nations still more in want of them. It is true, you have derived many advantages from your European ancestors, but it is equally true that you have transplanted a large portion of their errors and prejudices; you cannot, therefore, enjoy to their full extent the benefits to which I refer, until these errors of the old world shall have been removed. The greatest and most lamentable of these are the notions -- that human nature has been so formed as to be able to believe or disbelieve, and to love and hate, at pleasure, and that there can be merit or demerit in believing or disbelieving, and in loving or hating. These false notions are the origin of evil, and the real cause of sin and misery among mankind; yet they are received and continued, in direct opposition to every fact known to the human race. Every one may easily ascertain for himself that they are errors of the imagination. Let any one endeavor, by his own will alone, to compel himself to believe what he disbelieves, or has been taught to think he disbelieves. For instance, let any one who is a sincere Christian, endeavor, with all his power, to compel himself to believe that Mahomet was a true prophet; or a devout Jew that Jesus was the true Messiah, and only son of God; or a conscientious Musselman that Mahomet was a cheat and an imposter. Or again, let any one endeavor to dislike that which by his nature and education he has been made to like. This experiment, if fairly and honestly made, will be sufficient to convince any one, that belief and disbelief, love and hatred, are not under the control of the will. It is, therefore, irrational in the extreme to maintain that man can be accountable for either, and most unjust and injurious to force any such absurdity into the infant mind. Yet all religion and laws have been hitherto founded on this error. Hence, their want of success; hence the present irrational state of the human mind in every part of the world; and hence nearly all the evils, except those of climate, which afflict the inhabitants of the U. States. When these errors shall have been removed, there will be no obstacle to great improvement in education, rapid advances in valuable knowledge of every kind, the creation of wealth, and the arrangement and government of society, for the well-being and happiness of the inhabitants of every state in the Union. But this change cannot be effected until society shall be remodeled on principles in strict accordance with our nature, nor until men shall be taught the facts upon which these principles are founded, viz: that no infant ever formed any part of itself; that no two infants are alike; that infants from birth are gradually formed into the characters which they afterwards become, by the circumstances which exist around them acting upon the peculiar combination of faculties, qualities, and propensities, which has been given to each infant at birth. A knowledge of these facts will develop the real nature of man, and show the importance and necessity of well directing the circumstances which shall form the characters of the next and future generations, and which may materially amend those of the present. Having devoted many years to acquire a knowledge of the influence of the various circumstances by which men have hitherto been formed and governed, and in applying this knowledge to practice, I am induced to think that the experience thus obtained will enable me to explain to the world the science of the influence of circumstances, through a knowledge of which society may be in future so arranged and governed that it shall almost always produce happiness, and scarcely ever produce misery. It cannot be expected that a subject so comprehensive in practice and so new in the world should be really understood by a verbal or written explanation, except by a few superior minds. I have, therefore, had a model formed, explanatory of the proposed new arrangements, under the influence of which the character and condition of each individual and of society, cannot fail to be entirely changed and incalculably improved. The model I bring as a present to the General Government of the United States, that the individual government of each State may have an opportunity of obtaining a copy of it, and that all, if they choose, may be equally benefitted, should the plan be found to comprise all the extraordinary advantages which long experience has taught one to think it possess. The model and all the knowledge which experience has imparted to me on the various subjects connected with it, I freely give, without the expectation of any return. You possess nothing which I desire to obtain, except your good will and kind feelings; and these you cannot avoid giving, if circumstances shall be created to produce them; and it not, you cannot bestow them. Your wealth, places, and honors, I could not, with my views either value or accept. Your praises would be no praises to me; and the principles which I entertain lead me to estimate future fame less than an infant's rattle. I come to you with a fixed determination to make no pecuniary gain in your county -- I come to you, therefore, with no sordid, nor with an interested motive, unless it be one, to desire to see so many of my fellow creatures enjoy the happiness which I believe this change of your system will produce. If you do not make the change, I cannot, in the slightest degree, blame any of you; but I shall attribute the want of success of my views to the deficiency of power in myself to explain them in such a manner as to make it appear to be your interest to adopt them. All I ask is that you will fully and honestly examine the subject. Your friend, ROBT. OWEN."
Mr. OWEN. On the preceding page [above] will be found an Address from this Gentleman, on his return from England, in which he broadly declares his further views and purposes. Willing that he shall have every opportunity to make a fair experiment of his system, we shall avoid the course of some of our brethren, who rather roughly reprove in him sentiments which they cannot adopt. In this country, Mr. O has an indisputable right to endeavor to explain and illustrate his views: and, so far from harshness, is entitled to courtesy from all those who estimate duly the civil and religious privileges with which every man becomes invested who sets his foot on the soil of the United States. Mr. OWEN is disinterested at least; and the employment of an ample fortune in the execution of projects for the improvement of the condition of the human race, is no mean recommendation of him to hospitality and kindness among this People. Having said thus much, it is but candid to add, that we are not among the converts to his system, either politically or morally considered. That a community may exist on his principles, we believe possible; we do not believe that the experiment will evolve advantages equal to those now enjoyed by this People generally, and of course we do not believe that the example of this community will commend itself to general imitation. We are perfectly willing, however, to see the experiment fairly tried.
The Hebrew Sabbath. A question, of a nature new to us, arose lately at Cincinnati, between the Office of Discount and Deposite of the Bank of the United States in that city, and Mr. MORRIS MOSES. A bill, drawn upon the firm of MOSES & JONAS, of which he is one, at five days after sight, was presented for acceptance on Saturday, the Sabbath of the Hebrews, to which persuasion Mr. MOSES belongs. He proposed to defer the acceptance till the evening of that day, it being contrary to his principles to write on the Sabbath day. This was considered as a refusal to accept, and the note was immediately sent to the Notary to note for non-acceptance. It was, however, presented in the evening, and was then accepted, and has been since paid. The Cincinnati editor suggests that some provision ought to be made by law to pay respect to the religion and feelings of the Jews, in this particular. None can respect more that we do, the conscientious scruples of all professors of religion, Christian or Hebrew; but we should apprehend that the introduction of two Sabbaths into the mercantile law would be inconvenient, to say the least of it. Might it not open a door for evasion, also? We apprehend that there are times at which even a well-intentioned man may be so hard pressed that he would incline to Judaism on a Saturday, resuming his Christian profession on Sunday, if by so doing he could defer the payment of a bill from Saturday to Monday. Our object, however, in noticing this occurrence, is to ask for information, what is the law (by which we mean the mercantile usage,) of Europe, on this subject.
In Pittsburg (Penn.), a great addition is making to the number of substantial brick dwellings. There are now in activity in the same place, 7 considerable Steam Rolling Mills, employed in the manufacture of iron into bars, sheets and nails; 8 large Air Foundries; 6 separate Steam Engine manufactories; a Wire manufactory, &c. The Pittsburg Gazette says: "One fact worthy to be noted, which has come to our knowledge, is that Mr. STACKHOUSE has received an order to construct a steam engine of 100 horse power, for the Phoenix Iron Works, near Philadelphia. If so weighty an article can be constructed here, on terms which will justify its transportation by land to Philadelphia, what advantage might not our enterprising artisans expect to derive from the opening of a water communication to the eastern seaboard?" The same paper has the following paragraph: "We have no data from which to ascertain the number and business of the various blast furnaces scattered over the face of the Western country, and from which the iron works and foundries of this place are supplied with metal. There are several in Fayette, Westmoreland, and Beaver counties, and no less than five north of the Allegheny river."
Agriculture in Virginia. The premium offered by the Agricultural Society of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, for the best conducted farm was awarded to H. S. TURNER, Esq. of Jefferson county, upon which the Editor of the American remarks: "Rich land is a very good thing, but talents and discernment only can make the most of it. They tell in agriculture as well as in other affairs."
Franklin Insurance Office, 7th November, 1825. A dividend of six per centum has been declared for the last six months; two-thirds thereof, or four per cent, is now payable to the Stockholders, one-third being added to the "Surplus Fund." A. BRADLEY, Jun, Secretary.
Lotteries. Under the Management of J. B. YATES & A. McINTYRE. Tickets and Shares are now for sale at the Managers' Office, Washington City, by wholesale and retail, in the greatest variety, in the following Lotteries: all upon the new and popular mode by combination, by means of which the drawing of each is completed in the most just and equal manner, in a few minutes; precluding the possibility of error or fraud, and entirely removing some of the most obvious objections to Lotteries.
----Quantico Canal Lottery, of Virginia, to be drawn on the 2d of November. Amount of Scheme, $163,680. Highest Prizes: $20,000; $10,000, 2 of $5,000, 2 of $2,956, 12 of $1,000, 12 of $500 each, &c.&c.

-On presenting for public patronage the following Scheme of a Lottery, involving upwards of Half a Million of Dollars, it will not be thought improper for the Managers to inform the Public upon what grounds they may expect the punctual performance of so great engagements. Without adverting to the money arising from the sale of tickets in the Lottery itself, (and the sales are nearly completed;) and aside from the business capital of the Managers, and their private estates; and independent, also, of the vested funds of the Literary Institutions, for whose benefit the Lottery is authorized (which funds are made responsible by law, and which, of themselves are abundantly sufficient for the occasion) -- the Managers have given the approved security of wealthy individuals, their friends, to the government of the state of New York; and additional security to the same extent, to the institutions, for the prompt and effectual performance of their contracts. And it has been made the duty, as it always has been the pleasure, of the Managers to give similar security, in each of the respective Lotteries committed to their charge. They beg leave to add, that their affairs are so arranged, that, in the event of the death of both Managers, no failure or delay would take place in the performance of their engagements to the public or to individuals, extensive as these engagements may seem to be. Having stated these facts, they feel a confidence in soliciting favor for:
----The New York State Literature Lottery, No. 3, to be drawn on the 4th of January next. Amount of Scheme, the great sum of $567,600, And only 14,000 tickets. In which are the following splendid fortunes destined for some of fortune's favorites: $100,000 in one capital, $50,000 in another, $20,000 in another. Also, $10,500, 2 of $5,000, 4 of $2,500, 10 of $2,000, 39 of $1,000, 78 of $500, 468 of $100. In this Lottery no prize is less than $50. Whole tickets $50; Halves, $25; Quarters $12.50, Eighths $6.25, and Sixteenths $3.12.
-This lottery, like all those under the management of J. B. YATES and A. McINTYRE, is arranged in the established and very popular mode by the combination of three numbers upon each ticket; there being only 45 numbers in the whole, of which six will be drawn from the wheel. It requires a ticket to contain some three of the drawn numbers, to entitle the holder to a capital prize; and that one which contains the three first numbers drawn, the Grand Capital of $100,000! A ticket with only two of the drawn numbers may be a prize of $1,000!
--Washington and Connecticut Lottery. To be drawn on the 18th of January next. Highest Prizes: $20,000; 2 of $10,000, 3 of $5,000, 10 of $1,000, 20 of $500. Tickets $5; Halves, $2.50; Quarters $1.25.

And no prize less than $10. Present price of Tickets, $9; Halves, $4.50; Quarters $2.25, Eighths $1.25. But will shortly rise to $10 for a whole ticket, and shares in proportion. These lotteries are authorized, respectively, for the construction of public works, the advancement of Learning and Literature; and the promotion of the best interests of the community; they are therefore worthy of the countenance of all friends to Learning and Public Improvements; such will see in these objects a sufficient motive for their favor and patronage. Orders, post paid, for parcels, single tickets, or shares, are respectfully solicited, and will be attended to, by YATES & McINTYRE.
Bank of Washington, 1st November 1825. A Dividend at the rate of Six per cent per annum for the half year ending 31st ultimo, has been declared and will be paid to the Stockholders on the 4th instant. By Order: WILLIAM A. BRADLEY, Cash'r.
