The following extract from a New York cannot fail to lie interesting. In referring to, the receipts of Teas in this country for onef year up to 30th ultimo, it saj s they will lie 12, L. pounds short of the imports of tiie year end ing June 9t, is.%,and that ? The advance in black teas. Oolongs, since last Dec?ml?er, has l>een fifteen cents per pound; and Young Hyson Teas, of low and medium grades, have experienced an advance of one hundred per cent, over last season's closing prices. "It will thus l?e seen that the strong and rapid advance in the tea market has t?een the result of i? short supply and active demand ; but when it iscou sidered that we may hearat any moment ol the en tire suspension ot shipments at Shanghai, and. in fact, that, as soon as h suiiicient force from England arrives at the seat of war, all hvo ports of entry in China, will prolmbly lie placed under strict blockade, it would not lie surprising to see Teas at a much higher figure than they have yet attained." In view of these facts, we hold out very great in ducements for families to lay in their supplies of Tea note. KING A BIRCHKLL, iell-tf Corner Vermont ave.and 15th street.

Twoor three bottles will clear the system nf Biles. Two bottles are warranted to cure the worst Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. Three to five bottles are warranted to cure the worst kind of Erysipelas. One or two bottles are warranted to cure all Hu mor in the Eyes. Two bottles are warranted to cure Running ol the Ears and Blotches among the Hair. Four to six twttles are warranted to cure corrupt and running fleers. One bottle will cure Scaly Eruptions of the Skin. Two or three fiottles are warrantod to cure tue worst kind of Ringworm. Two or three hot ties are warranted to cure the most most desperate case of Kheumatism. Three to four bottles are warranted to cure Salt rheum. ... . r Five to eight bottles will oure the worst case of Scrofula. , ,, .. . . A benefit is always experienced from the first bot tle, and a perfect cure is warranted when the above quantity is taken. Nothing looks so improbable to those who have in vain tried all the wonderful medioines of the day, as that a common weed growing on the pastures, and along old stonewalls, should cure every humor in the system ; yet it is a fixed fact. If you nave a humor, it has to start. There are no IKS nor AN DS, hums nor ha's al>out it suiting some casvs, buttnot yours. I ped(J?ed over a thousand littles of it in the vicinity of Boston. 1 know the etleets of it lu every case. il ;.&? already done some of the greatest cures ever oue in Massachusetts. 1 gave it to children a year oid. to oid peopie of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, wormy-looking children, whose flesh was soft and flabby, restored to a perfect state of health by one bottle. . . , To those who are subject to a sick headache, one bottle will always cure it. It gives great relief in catarrh and dizziness. Some who have taken it had been costive for years, and have been regulated by it. Where the body is sound it works quite easy, but where there is any derangement of the functions of nature, it will cause very singular feelings, but you must not be alarmed; the? always disappear in from four days to a week. There is never a wul re sult from it; on the oontranr. when that feeling is roue, you will feel yourself like a uew person. I ne:ir<l some of the most extravagant encomiums ol it that ever man listened to. . ... ... t In my own practice I nlways kept it strictly for hu mors?out since its introduction as a general family medicine, great aud wonderlul virtues have been found in it that 1 never suspected. . Several casesof cpileptic fits?a disease which wm always considered incurable, have been cured by a few liottles. (), what a mercy if it will prove effec tual m all cases of that awful malady ?there are but few who have seen more of it than 1 have. I know of several cases of Dropsy, all of them aged Ieople cured by it. For the various diseases of the .iver. Sick Headache, Dyspepsia, Asthma, Fever and Ague, l'ain in the Side, Diseases o| the Spine, and particularly in Diseases of the Kidneys, Ac., the discovery has done more good than any nieificine ever known.

Very numerous are the ill effects caused to the precious organ of sight from the commencement of using glasses in not being precisely suited, by the use of an Optome ter; and the practice of many years enables him to measure the focal disease of the eyes, and such glasses that are absolutely required will be furnish ed with precision and satisfaction. JOHN TOBIAS acknowledges the very libera! encouragement already obtained, and further solicits the patronage of those who have uot yet availed themselves of his aid. Persons that cannot conveniently oallt by sending the glasses lu u?e, and state how many inches they can read this print with their spectacles, oan be sup plied with such as will improve their sight.

HENRY A. WISE. Having been induced by a friend to visit the estab* bailment of Mr. Tobias for tho purpose of trying lite glasses, 1 was furnished by him with a pair slightly oolored bluo, whioh have aflorded me more relief and gratification than nny I have ever tried. My sight, originally very good, was injured by writ ing and reading at night, frequently to a very late hour; but with the aid of these glasses I oan study almost as late as ever, and that too without the pain 1 have previously suffered.

From an inequality in the Visual mn^e of my eyes, 1 have heretofore found Sreat difficulty in getting glasses of tho proper focal ? stance. It attorns ine pleasure to state that, by the aid of your optometer, this diltieulty hai been happi ly obviated, so that the glasses you furnished me are decided i y the boat adapted to luy eyes of any I have ever yet used. Vei y icspectfully, yours, R. B. DRANE, Rector of St. James's Parish. Dfpartmrnt of Interior, May 8,1855. From natural defects and the unequal ranee of my eyos, I have t>eeri compelled to use glasses for seve ral years. 1 have tried different opticians without obtaining glasses perfectly hlted lo my eyes. Four months since Mr. Tobias made two pairs especially for nie, which I have found t? serve me perfectly. By the uso 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.
