The Rev. Dr. Chiever, of N-w York, testifies of our medicine in the following language ; New York, Nov. 15, 18>4. Dear Sir?I think highly of Dr. Curtis's Hygeana as a remedy in di-eases of the throat and Lung* ? Having had some opportunity to testify its efficacv, I am convinced that it is a most excellent med'i eine, both the Syrup and the inhaling application to the chest. Prof. 8. Cutter writes us a? follows ? Gentlemen?I have recently had occasion to test your Cherry Syrup and Hygean Vapor, in a ca?e of chronic sort' throat, that had refused to yield to oth er forms of treatment, and th result has satisfied me that, whatever may be the romp >sitir.n of your preparation, it is no imposition, but an excellent remedy. 1 wish, for ihe sake of the afflicted, that it might be brought within the reach of nil.

Having witnessed the ex cellent rflVct* of your Hygcana or inhaling Hygein Vapor and Cherry Syrup, in case of Chronic Bron chitis, and being inii'-h in favor of counter irritation in affections of the throat, Bronchial tubes and lungs I can therefore cheerfully recommend your Medi cated Apparatus as being tiie most convenient and | effectual mode of applying anything of the kj..U I 1 have ever seen.

M the Assay Office, the other day, we were shown the interesting process by j which the gold, brought to this city in , its original impure and mixed state, is refined and made ready for coinage. This j work is performed in a large, commo | dious, and fire-proof building at the rear | of the Assay Office. Among the other interesting sights is the handsome and pflwerful steam engine, which moves the I machinery for crushing the waste stuff, the object of which is to prepare it for reworking, in order to extract the j arti cles of gold wh:ch happen to get mixed with it. The engine is connected with the hydraulic press, which presses out the silver that has been compounded with the gold in the refining operation, which is as follows: The separation of the alloy from the gold, which alloy is almost entirely coniposcd of silver, is ef fected by the action of acids, which dis solve the silver and leave the gold pure and solid: as this action cannot take place without a proportion of two parts of silver to one of gold, on account of the protecting influence of the latter? I after first ascertaining by the process of I separation on a small scile, the propor tion of silver originally mixed wiih the more precious metal, the requisite quan tities added: the two metals are then I placed in vessels partly tilled with nitric acid, and this is boiled for some time, by immersing the vessels in hot water, which is kept at a very high temperature by passing through pipes exposed to I great heat in one of the furnaces. Aflei this operation is finished and the gold is I refined, there still remains the silver held in solution by the acid. By precip itating this into salt and water, it is con verted into chloride of silver, a substance I resembling powdered lime. This, attci I undergoing two or three operations. 1 such as melting arid mixing with sul lphur and zinc, is again turned into the I solid metal. i Before going into the#working rooms, rwe weot into the weighing room, where I the principal oVjects of curiosity are the |E:alcs, which are very large, and yet so I finely made and regulated that the I weight of one hundredth part of an ounce I will turn them. In this room, the most Idel cate process is performed?that ol I finding out and regulating the quality of J the precious metals, so that when assay led, they may be of a certain and fixed lvalue. A large number of men are un I ployed in tLis work, and everything is [done in a quiet and orderly manner. I which shows good management and su pervision.?N. F. Jour, of Com. A Tropity from tiik Battle of Inker MANN.?We saw at Young's bookstore, 3'esterday, a musket which was used by a Russian soldier at the battle of Inker mann. The piece is Russian all over. The stamp of the double eagle, near the breech, settles its nationality. The ma ple siock bears marks of long and hard service. The barrel was originally fur nished with an ordinary Hint side-lock : but this has been changed to the percus sion-cap 44 nipper" on the top of the barrel, and the percussion 44 hammer*' to correspond. The 44 cap hammer" is a model, remarkable ratht r for the certain ty it makes of a sure fire, if the cap is good for anything, than for its beauty. It woigDS at least half a pound, and jumps under the motion of the trigger with a spitefiJness calculated to make a war-dog laugn. The musket is the property of D. G. Sarkis, now of this city, who has just returned from Europe. lie obtained it of his brother, who is an interpreter in the Allied army, and who received it from a wounded Russian soldier the dav after the battle of lnkermann.?'lro^ WhiS. M0sQriT0E3.?An informant of the N.Y Evening Post, who has given much at tention to the subject, has satisfied him self that mosquitoes are bred in the cis terns or tanks which are suspended abov< the water closets in all our dwellings These tanks are without any covering and in the summer they bicoine warmed to the tempeiature of the surrounding atmosphere, which is often eighty de grees or more. At that high tempera ture mucquitoes are generated in all rain or cistern water not in motion. Cisterns produce them in great quantities, and in September they become a domestic plague. The way to abate the nuisance is to keep all tanks, cisterns, and rain-water bar rels closely covered ; and to see that nc water is suffered to become stagnant in the yards, &c. Our fellow-citizens must look out in time. Bisnop Doank on Woman's Rights.? The iiight Rev. Bishop of New Jersey has no fancy for strong-minded women and women in bifurcations. In the coursc of his address the other day, to the fe male graduating class, at St. Mary's LU11, Burlington, after alluding to the value of intellectual accomplishments, in women, the Bishop, nevertheless, ob served : 44 The highest human graces that a woman ever won, have but ensnared her soul in vanity and sin ; and wrought de struction, through their attractions, for the souls of others. And intellectual powers and intellectual gifts, cot subor dinated to the providential orderings of God, not chastened and controlled by llis renewing grace, are, at this time uu sexing women : and thrusting on the as tonished world a race of monsters, iu that Amazonian crew, who clamor now for 44 Woman's Rights" such as no my thology has ever dreamed of.'' flZT A teacher at a national schocl ask ed a boy which is the highest dignitary of the church ?

Dobbins and George S. Rollaon. They represented theirm* Ivce as being connect j ed with families of co'oihcy in England, j Their conduct at least shows that tbey arc fond of sporting and riding. They pationized Mr. Slauson, where they ob tained horses and can iages at a mom tut a notice. On riding out the other day, lor the purpose of seeing the country, tbev pissed througlT Lancaster street, when I they observed quite a pretty young ladjr fitting at the window of a private resi dence. They saluted her, when she re turned the compliment. Cne of the gen tlemen subsequently sent her a note, soliciting her company to a place of amusement, which she declined, tut in her note she insinuated that he would be a welcomc visitor to her house. The note was pondered over, but no decided action was agreed upon until last evea lng i Ihey started off yesterday for a ride, I "ik Vtcr Sett'ng * short distance Irom the city their wag:>n broke down. They however, managed to get it home, but in Id mg this thty were obliged to stop at a.! the public h;uses on the way, the re sult of which was tuey got somewhat in tbria'ed. After they had returned the horse and wagon, they resolved to make I a call upon the lady in question in Lan I caster street. This occurred rather late I m the evening, and upon rapping at the door they were met by tie young lady's I r[ r' denied them admittance. Ihey lritered around the house for some | timv, and af'.er another unscccssful at I lempt to see the lady they be ame vexed, I when one of the gentlemen in anger I i,,rew a P*ving 8?.one against the door. I ? his created some alarm among the in I '.nates, when the brother of the young lady was dispatched to the fourth district I station house to obtain the services of a j policeman. After the throwing the stone ?iey ?oitered about the hou&e for some I some time, and were finally arrested and I ~ s'*tion house by the police. They were obliged to take up their abode I last night at that place, and this morn I ing they were brought kefore Justice I Cole, who, after a hearing of the case, I cumm tted them to jail. With their pre ? tensions to nobility, they could only show I about >28 this morning, and upon being I asked wnere they resided refused to give I an}r satisfactory answer. Who are they, I and where do ihey belong.' are questions I that will doubtless be asked by many of I our readers. As soon as we are informed I we will divulge that which is now a se I cret hid in their own breasts.?Albany I Journal, Monday. I Po,IXTEn Extract.?In one of Rev. E. IH. Chapin's sermons is the following I pointed extrect: " Many a iuan there is clothed in re spectability, and proud of his honor, I v\ hose central idea of life is interest and I ease, the conception that other men are I mere tools to be used as will best serve I him, that God has endowed him with j *>incw and brain merely to scramble and I get; and so in this grand universe, which ilis a perfect circulation of benefits, he lives like a sponge on a rock, to absorb, land bloat and die. Thousands in this I g'eat city arc living so, who never look I ort of the narrow circle of their self-in I tercst; whose decalogue is arithmetic, I whose Bible is a ledger ; who have so I contracted, and hardened: S"d stamped I their nature, that in any spiritual esti I mate, they would pc,ss for only so many j bogus dollars. 1 emporal Sovereignty of the Pope (I Denied.?Archbishop Keurick, in his I pastoral letter, published in Baltimore, j makes the following allusion to the tem f poral power of the Pope: i 1 o the General and State Govern ment you owe allegiance in all tbat re . gards the civil order; the authorities of . of the Church challenge your obedience . j in the things of salvation.

On every opportune occasion, we have avowed these principles, and even i in our communications to the Pontiff, we rejected as a calumny the imputation tiiat , we were, in civil matters, subject to his II authority." Miss-Directed.?A few days since a letter was received at the post office in I this city, for one of our Wall street r I magnates, but directed so blindly that the postman delivered it at the boarding , house of an actress in one of our theatres bearing a similar name. She opened it and out dropped a draft for the moderate I sum of $24,000! She soon discovered that the letter was not hers, and a little inquiry put her on the track of the pro per owner, and she hastened to his place of business with the letter; soon she ar ; rived there, but in such a flustration that as the gentleman who received her said Ishe must have chartered at least two omnibuses for the trip.
