It affords me pleasure to state that, by the aid of your optometer, this difficulty lias been happi It obviated, so that the glasses you furnished me are decidedly the best adapted to my eyes of any I have ever yet used. Very respectfully, yours, R. B. DRANE, Rector of St. James's Parish. Dkpabtxs*t or Interior, May 8,1S55. From natural defects and the unequal range of ray eyea, 1 have been compelled to use glasses for seve ral years. I have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly fitted to my eyes. Four months since Mr.Tobias made two pairs especially for me, which 1 have found to serve me perfectly. Bv the use of his optometer he is enabled to adapt glasses most minutely to the eye. I most cheerfully recommend Mr. Tobias to all having occasion to use glasses, and bear my testimony as to his skill as an optician. HENRY E. BALDWIN, Ass't Sec'y to sign Land Warrants. P. S.

In corporated in the year 1832, it has sinoe then contin ued to do a constantly increasing business, until it stands, in the Comptroller's Report of Insurance Companies in the State of New York for the current year, second only in amount of busings, solvency, and capital in that State. Its reliability dunug the financial revulsions of the past twenty-live years has boen fully tested and sustained. Within ths limits ol the State of New York no other recommendation would be necessary than the Report of the State Comptroller for 1857, which can be seen at the offioe of the Agent. The prompt payment of all its losses, and the con tinued accumulation of its capital and surplus fund is a sufficient guarantee of its aelvenoy tor Miefu ture. _ ap lS^ttw PBmT!&NDAuN*u?iSKW^,FROM THE INLAND FARMERS AND MECHANICS' INSURANCE COMPANY, OP PHILADELPHIA.

That such is its character, is abundantly proved liy the laot, that it has !>een extensively used the last twenty (ears with unparalleled success ; that its reputation as continued to spread and its sale increase, with little aid from advertising or published lists of eer tibcates, (which all know can as easily be had for a worthless preparation as lor a meritorious one, I that by its own mtrinsio merit, with the reoommeodaHoo of persons benefited by its use, it has gained its pre sent popularity ; it is not trumpeted to the world as a specific or cure all, but as a valuable and scientific auxiliary in pulmonary eases, ready at hand, and one that has been generally fonnd to afford relief where most others have been tried without material benefit. As such, it is recognised by numbers of our leading physicians, who know its composition, and have been eye witnesses of its superior efficacy, as well as by thousands of our most respectable citizens, to most of whom referenoe is cheerfully permitted.
