A WaSHIMOTOM 4,M D.,: CATGUT BT SHARP ktt*.?A Dr. of Washington, a gentleman wbo cupposed himself posted in all sorts of sharp practice, wiu sitting, a duy or two since, reading the paper at his hotel, in this city, when a well dresseu and good looking stranger, who had also Mt reading a paper near him for an hour, Cn ishel his iiewg-huuting, dropped the paper, Iawned and stretched hiuirfelt and threw up ia arms, and straightened out his legs, nnd said to the Doetor. by way of an introduction. " we have some very hot day* now " Our friend Sawboneslookedover his glares'. and surveying the gentlemanly stranger as one would a bank bill never l>eforeseen, mentally pronounced him "all right,' aud replied, ?? wo hud. indeed; but after all, not quite so warm as in Washington, where he made it hu*home." Thegentlemanly stranger stated he ' wa* from the South ai*?, and was happy to meet a southerner;'' he '' was here purchasing goods.' he "hail keen very busy?no time even to look about the city '*? but his maxim ever wa* " business first, pleasure afterwards Our frienJ, the Washington M. D., was delighted to find so pleasant a compan ion, and was persuaded to walk up town with his new friend,.who had a little bill to .settle of wrenty dollars, the closing up of his purchases. Oar M. D. took the \>alk?and they sauntered up Broadway?but hi* polite new acquaintance hardly knew anything of the lions of the city he bad been so busy ho could not find theni out Presently they arrived somewhere near No. 460?it was about here he owed his bill? but a Btranger get* so confused in this noisy city ! As our M D. and his friend were break ing tbelr necks in looking up to read the signs, a gentleman bobbed out of oue of the stores with his bat off. "Ah. my dear sir,'' said the friend of our M.D.. "I was trying to find your place?I will settle that little affair.*' lie pulled out four twenties and handed the new comer. This last genius could not make the change; the friend of our M.D. was perplexed; he turued his pockets inside out. but had noth ing but the four twenties?he owed just seventy. Our M.D. was appealed to to change a twenty ; he had not change enough. Could he lend business friend ten till they got back to the hotel, and he might take "the twenty in the meantime* Our M.D. could not be so small as to take the twenty, but he lent the ten. The bill was Laid; they walked back, discussing New \ork and ita wonders, and on their ar rival our southern merchant asked the Dr. to just look at the evening paner while he stepped to the office to get the twenty changed. Uur M.D. was seen reading the evening paper sev eral hours after that, but the southern merchant had not brought that change " M.D." was the next day a wiser but a poorer man.?JV. Y. Day Book.

I have tried a pair of Spectaclea obtained from Mr. Tobias, and find them of great assistance to my sight, and corresponding with his description of the foods. 1 recommend him as a skilful opt,cian. HENRY A. WISE. Having been nduced by a friend to visit the estab lishment of Mr. Tobias for the purpose of trying his glasses, 1 was furnished by hnri with a pair slightly oolored blue, which have afforded me more r?iief and gratification than any I have ever tried. My sight, originally very zood, was injured by writ ing and reading at night, frequently to a very late hour; but with the aid of these gla?ses I can study almost as late <is ever, and that too without the pain I have previously suffered. JOHN WILSON, Late Commissioner Uea'l Land Omce. Pec. 11. 1855. have used Mr. Tobias's Spectacles for thre? or four months, ai.d take great pleasure in saying that 1 am much pleased with thern.

From an inequality in the visual range of my eyes, I have heretofore found 5reat difficulty in getting glasses of the proper istance. It affords me pfeasureto state that,by the aid of your optometer, tins difficulty has been happi ly obviated, so that the glasses you furnished me are decidedly the l>est adapted to my eyes of any I have ever yet ns?d. Very respectfully, yours, R. B. DRANE, Rector of St. Jamea's Pariah. Department of Interior, May 8,1&5S. From natural defects and the unequal range of my eyea, I have l>een compelled to use glasses for seve ral years. I have tn?d different opticians without obtaining glasses perfeotly fitted to my eyes. Four months since Mr.Tobias inade two pairs especially for mo, which I have found to serve me perfectly. By the use of his optometer he is enabled to adapt glasses most minuteljr to the eye. 1 most cheerfully recommend Mr. Tobias to all having occasion to use glasses, and bear my testimony as to his skill as an optician.
