The New Kisd or Paper.?It appears that the parchment paper" recently invented by Mr. Gaine, ot tngland. is 9oon to he manufac tured and brought into general use. According to the London Mechanics Magaiine's report ou this matter, and which U remarked upon ap provingly by the Scientific American. Mr (iaine instituted a series of experiments to discover the effect* of acids of different degrees of strength upon vegetable fibre; and he succeeded in dis covering that when paper is exposed to a mix ture of two parts concentrated sulphuric acid of the specific gravity of 1.864, with one part of water. for a short time, simply drawing it through the liouid. it is immediately converted into a strong. akin-like material. All traces of the sulphuric acid must be instantly removed by careful washing in water. If the strength of the acid much exceeds or falls short of the above dezreos. the paper is either charred or converted into dextrine, or if it is allowed to remain for many minutes in the sulphuric acid after the change in its texture has been effec ted. In a little more than a second of time a piece of porous, weak and unsized paper is con certed into parchment paper?a substance so stronr that a ring of it. scven-eighthsofan inch in widtb^and weighing no more than twontv three grains, sustained a weight of ninety-two pounds; and a strip of parchment of the same dimensions supported fifty eix pounds. Like parchment, it nbsorbs some water, but It does not percolate through it, and it is even iado fltruetible by water. Printed paper is capable, by this pmress. of being converted int<f parchment paper without obliterating the printing ^ Bank or E.vglasd Note has some peculiar and interesting characteristics of manufacture the paper being distinguished by -its color! which is peculiar white, such as is neither sold in shops, nor used tor any other purpose; bv its thinness and transparency, qualities which prevent any of the printed part of the note be '2g out bJ turpentine, or removed by the knife, unless a hole is made in the place thus prastieed on; by its characteristic feel, a peculiar crispness and toughness, which those aocustomed to handle it distinguish the true notes instantly; the wire or watermark, which is produced on the paper when in the state of pulp, and which is easily distinguished from a mark stamped on after the papur is completed" the three deckle" edges?the mould contains two notes placed lengthwise, which nro separa J * knife at a luturo Fta^e of the process, tbis deck.e or w?x>den frame of the paper mould producing the peculiar eIF**t seen on ed^es of uncut paper, and this edging l*ing caused when toe paper is in a state of pulp, precludes any successful imitation after the paper in nade. also by the strength of the paper, which is made from new linen and cotton In its wa ter leat or unsized condition, a bank note will support thirty-six_ pounds, and when one grain of siie has been diffused through it, it will lift half a hundred weight. 1T7* Mr. Merrimaa Tucker, of Alamo.

T^liE GREATEST MEDICAL OK 1 - DTSQOTM&r THE AttE. Mr. Kihnibt. of Roxbarr, has discovered to om of oar common pasture weeds a reaedy that ouree ivxxt kind or HOMOE, from Tkt worst Scrofula down to a common Pimple. Ho has tried it in over eleven hundred oases, and ?ever tailed except m two oases, hoth Thunder Ho nor. He has now in his possession over one hundred certificates of its value,all Within twenty miles of Boston. Two bottles are warranted to care a nursiac Bora Mftath. One to three bottles will cure the wont kind of Pimples on the Faoe. Two or three buttlee will dear the system of Biles. Two bottles are warranted to cure the worst Canker in the Mouth and Stomach. Three to five bottl*s are warranted to oare the Worst kind of Erysipelas. . _ One or two l>ottles are warranted to ours all Hu mor in the Eyes. Two bottle* are warranted to core Running of the .Ears and Blotches among the Hair.

Four to six bottles are warranted to oare oorrupt and running doers. One bottle will cure Scaly Eruptions of the Skin. Two or three bottles are warrauted to ours the worst kiud of Ringworm. Two or three bottles are warranted te oare the most most desperate case of Rheumatism. Three to four bottles are warranted to oure Salt rheum. Five to eight bottles will oure the worst case of Scrofula. A benefit is always experienced from the first bot tle, and a perfect curd is warranted when the above quantity is taken. Nothing looks ?o improtAbie to those who have in vain tried all the wonderful medicines of the day, as that a common weed growing on the pastures, and along old stone walls, should oure every humor in the system ; yet it is a fixed tact. It you have A humor. It tins to start. Thorn are no IPS nor AN OS, hums uor ha'* almut it suiting some casus, I uth.ot yours. 1 peddled over a thousand liottiesol it iu the vioiuity ol Boston. 1 know the effects of it in every case. It has already done some of the greatest euros ever done hi Massachusetts. 1 give it to children a year oid, to oid peopio of sixty. I have seen poor, puny, vrormy looking children, whose Mesh was soil and flabby, restored to a peifcct state of health by one bottle. To those who ars snbjeot to a sick headache, one bottle will always ours it. It lives great relief in catarrh and d'xzinsss. Some who have taken it had l>ooii costive lor years, au<< have been regulated by It. Where the body is s >und it works quite easy, but where there is any derangement of the functions of nature.it will aatise vrry singular feelings, hut ?iii must not l>e alarmed; thuv always disapixfir in rom four days to a week. There is never a had re sult from it; on the contrary. when that feeling is f:one. you wil! fe?l yourself like a nr* person. I ie?rd some oftfic moist extravagant encomiums of it I hat ever man listened to. In hit own praoticw I nlwnrs kept it strictly for hu mors?nut since its introduction as a general family medicine, great and wonderful virtues have been found in it that I never suspected. Several ca*"sof epileptic fits?a disease whioh was always considered incurable, have been ouredbya few tiottles. O, whnt a merer if it will prove effec tual ir\ all cases of thai awful inalady?there are but few whu have seen more of it than I have. 1 know of several cases of Oropsy, all of them aged people cured liv it. For the various diseases of the Liver, Sick Headacu*, Dyspepsia, Asthma, Fever and Ague, Pain in the Side, Diseases of the Spine, nnd particularly in Diseases of the Kidney s, Ac., the disoovery has dons more good than any inerficiue ever known. No ohange of diet ever neoessary?eat the best you can get and enough of tU D irections for V?*.?
