WISE. Petersburg, October 21,1854. About five yeara a/to, I obtained from Mr. Tobiaa, in Washington, a pair of Glasses for the spectacles which I used, and found them of great assistance to mjr decay ing vision; and my opinion of him is, that he is skillful in the preparation of Glasses for eyes not too far cone to be benefitted by auch aid. J. F. MAY. Ltnchbijrg. November 7,IBM. From an examination of Mr. Tobiaa' Glasses, find from hia observations and remarks, am oonvinced that he la a skillful optician. J. J. BLACKFORD.

Mr. John Tobias, having furnished me with Glas aea, by which 1 have been greatly aided, (my vision having suffered greatly from reading at night in my earlier life,) it affords ine the highest pleasure to say that I consider him a skillful practical optician, and well prepared to aid those who mar need his professional services. WM. H. RolJZIE, Elder of the Methodist Conference. Wilmington, N. C., June 27, ikm. Mr. J.Tobias? Dear Sir : I am happy to say that the Spectacles which I obtained from you last woek ara entirely satisfactory. From mi inequality in the visual range of my eyes, I have heretofore found great difficulty in getting glasses of the proper focal dis tances. It aff ords me pleasure to state, that by the aid of your optometer this difficulty has been happily obviated, so that the Glasses you furnished me are decidedly the best adapted to iny eyes of any 1 have ever yet used. Veri respectfully roars, R. B. DRANE. Reotorof St. James' Parish, Having been induced by a friend to visit the estab lishment of Mr, Tobias for the purpose of frying his F[lasses I was furnished with a pair eligjitlr ?loe.whice have afforded me iim^ relic! gratifi cation than any I have ever trtcdi My sight, origin ally very good, was injured by writing anj reading at night, frequently to a very late hour: but with the aid of these glasses 1 can study almost as late aa ever, and that too without the pwin I have previous ly suffered, JOHN WILSON, Late Commissionecr Gen'l Land Office, Dec. 11,1M5. I have used Mr. Tobias'a Spectacles for three or four months, and take great pleas'ure in saving thai 1 am much pleased with them. I iiftVe Iwen mucn benefited by them. GEO. 1*. SUARBIRUH.

A. r. Bl TLnR. July II, 185b. Washington, Aug. 8,1855. Having been for years nndcr the necessity of hat two sets of glasses?one for use in day light, ami o?i^ for lamp light ?I procure*] one set from Mr. Tobias which answered both purposes. I have used his for several months, and find them excellent. EDWARD STUBBS, Of Department of State. Mr. J. Tobias. Sir: The pair of Spectacles you furnished me yesterday are particularly satisfactory to me. They are very decidedly the best I possess, and I am the owner of eight or ?:ne pairs, carefully selected in different places and'from optician* rec ominended to me oii lU-COTini Pf'hcir professional standing in France, England, and the United States. I have been a'so pleased wish your remarks and di rections on the treatment of the eyes, for the pur pose of preserving and improving the sight Respectfully tours, CHS. CALDWELL. Professor of M. C., Louisville, Ky, Brooklyn Ofijopaedic Institution, April, 1854. After most oareful examination of Mr. J. Tobias's G.asses, I am enabled to testify that their hardness, olearness, polishing, and exact optical shape re:.der them particularly recommendable to those whose merely optical impairment of the eyes are in waut of such auxiliaries. I consider, moreover, Mr. Tobias full* qualified to determine the focus o| the eye,l>otll by his optical knowledge and experience, und by means of his optometer. In addition, I can further state that Mr. Tobias has supplied some of my pa tieuts with Utttsscs, to their and my satisfaction LEWIS BAUER, M. 1)., Physician and Sarseon. Berlin: Member of the Royal College otSiirgeons, England; Member of the MedicaJ Society of Lonuon, and of the Pathological Society of New \ ork; lute Sur geon of the Koyal Orthopaedic Institution of Manchester. England, and Surgeon of the B, O. Institution. Norfole, Va., July 27, 1854. In the experience ol even two years, I have four.d great difficulty in obtaining Spectaolcs that w'e ex actly adapted to the weakness of my sight. This in convenience Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for the presort by the substitution for me of letter and more suitable Glasses. They are cloar, ehry slal-like Slid oomforial?le to my eyes. I would commend turn to those who from age or other infirmity require ar tificial a.d in this way. J. J. SIM KINS, M. D. Wilmington, N.C., June 16, 1854. To persons who have had the sight of their eyes so impaired as to require the use of Glasses, I would recommend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable person from whom to obtain suoh Glasses ns they may re quire. as he has suited ine wit.h a pair of Spectacles fora f;ir and near sight. My sight tins been impaired very rnucii by a servioo of years in the Post Office Department, which berth required me to be on duty from 11 o'clock at night til! after day, during whicf time I used but one light. \V. A. WALK tR, Ukpartmknt of Interior, May 8, IR55. From natural defects and the uiiequa! range of my eyes, I 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 I have fouml to serve me perfectly. By the use of his optometer he is enabled to adspt glasses most minutely to the eye. I most cheerful ly recommend Mr. Tobias to all having occasion to use glasses, and hear my testimony as to his skill aa an optician. HENRY E. BALDWIN, se 25 Ass'tSeo'y to sign Ijind Warrasts.
