The proprietor begs leave to call the attention of strangers and the citizens of Washington, to a very superior article of Holland Oin. which he introduced to the American public under the name of Wolfe's Soheidam Aromatic Schnapps. This Gin is manufactured by the proprietor exclu sively at his Distillery in Sohiedam, Holland. It is made from fho best Barley that can be prooured in Europe, at any oost, and flavored and medicated, not by the oomm<?n harsh Iterry, but by the most choice botanical variety of the Aromatic Italian Ju niper Berry, whose more various extract is distill ed and rectified with its spirituous solvent, and thus beonmes a concentrated tincture of exquisite fla vors and aroma, altogether transcending in its Cor dial and Medicinal properties any aloohoiio beverage heretofore known. The proprietor has submitted U to nearly the whole Medical Faculty of the United States, and has received answers from about four thousand Physicians and Chemists, who endorse it over their signatures as a most desirable addition to the Ma teria Medica. Persons who purchase should be careful to get ttie genuine article, as the wlmlecountry is flooded with counterfeits and imitations.

Mr. J.Tobia*?U^ar Sir: I am happy to any thai the Spectacles which I obtained from you last "week are entirely eattsfactory. From nn inequality in fciif visual range of my eyes. I have heretofore found greai dilhculty iu getting gl.-isses of the proper focal dis tances. It ;.Uoids me pieasuru to stale, that by the a'd of your optometer this difficult* lias lieen happily obviated, so (tint the Glasses you furnished me art decidedly the best adapted to my eyes of any I have ever yet weed. Very respectfully Tours, R. B. DRANE. Rectorof S(. Jamea' Pariah. Having been induced bt a friend to visit the estab lishment of Mr. Tobias for the purpose of trying his classes I was furnished with a pair slightly colorcd blue, wince have afforded me mora relief and gratifi cation than any 1 have ever tried. My sikht, origin ally very good, was injured by writing and reading at night, frequently to a very late hour: but with the aiU of these glasses I can study almost as late at ever, and that too without the pwin I have previous ly auflered. JOHN WILSON, I Ate Commiaaioneer Geu'i Laud OAoe, Dec. 11,1855. I have used Mr. Tobias's Spectaolea for three o? four months,and take great pleas'ure in saying thai I am muoh pleased with them. I have been muoh lienehted by them. GEO. P. SCAR BURGH. May 5th. 1856. I was recommended to Mr. John Tobiasaaa ski'ful optician; and as I have et es of remarkable peculiari ty, I was gmtified to find that Mr. Tobias sunned tc comprehend them by inspection and some slight measurement, and he has made me a pair of Specta cles that suits me admirably. A. P. BUTLER. July II, 1856. WASHtifOTON. Ang. 8.1865. Having been for years under the necessity of hav two sets of classes?one for use in daylight, and one for lamp-light?I procured one set from Mr. Tobiaa whioh answered both purposes. I have used his for aeveral months, and find them exoellent. EDWA?DSTUBBS, Ol Department of Sfate. M[. J. Tobias. Sir: The pair of Spectacles yon furnished me yesterday are particularly satisfactory to me. The) are very deciifedly the best I possess, and | am the owner of eight or nine parrs, carefully selected in different plaoes and 'from opticians rec ommended u> me on account of their professional standing in France, England, and the United State*. I have been also pleased with your remarks and di rections on the treatment of the eyes, for the pur pose of preserving and improving the sight Respectfully yours, CHS. CALDWELL, Professor of M. C.. Louisville, Ky. Brooklyn Orthopaedic Institution. . April, IIM, A Her moat careful examination of Mr. J. Tcbiaa'a Glasses, I am enabled to testify that their hardnesa, clearness, polishing, and exact optical shape render them particularly reoommendable to those whose merely optioal impairment of the eyes are m want ol auoh auxiliaries. 1 oonaider. moreover, Mr. Tobias fully qualified to determine the foousof the eye,both by nis <M)tioal knowledge and experience, and by means of his optometer. In addition, I can further state that Mr. Tobiaa has anpplied some of my pa tienta with Glaases, to their and my satisfaction LEWIS BAUER. M. D..

Institution. Norfolk, Va.. July 27, IIM. In the experience of even two years, I have found great difficulty in obtaining Spectaoles that were ex actly adapted to the weakness of rey sight. This in oonvenienoe Mr. Tobias seems to have removed for the present by the substitution for me of better and more suitable Glasses. They are olear, ohrystal -like and oomfortable to my eyes. 1 would commend him to those who from age or other infirmity require ar tilioial aid in this way. J. J. SIMKINS, M. D. Wilminbton. N. C., June 16. 1854. To persons who have had the sight oftheireyesso impaired as to require the use of Glasses, 1 would recommend Mr. John Tobias as a suitable person from whom to obtain such Glasses as thev may re ?|uire, as he has suited me with a pair of Spectacles or a far and near sight. Mr sight has been impaired very much by a service of years in the Post Offioe Department, whieh berth required me to be on duty from II o'cloek at night till after day, during whioi timo 1 used but one Tight. W. A. WALKER. _ Dxpartmknt or Interior, May 1,1R55. Prom natural defects and the unequal range of ju ?ym, I have been compelled to use gleams for seve ral years. I have triad different opticians without obtaining glaaaea perfectly fitted to my eyes. Four months sinoe Mr. Tobias made two pairs especially for me, which I have found to serve me perfectly. By the use of his optometer he is enabled to adapt r;Lasses most nunutely to thu eye.
