The days of necromancy, however, have gone by ; but science happily wears a belt of fir greater potency than the goldeu one of the mighty liertnea. Certain it ia, that the transformations which dark, rough, chapped, Ireckled, tanued, or pimpled skins, are made to uudergo, by a free use of Gourand's Italian Medicated Soap, exceed the power of magic ! It ia ao highly medicated, that the entire hoat of cutaueous eritptious are immediately cured by it , it ia so emollieul, that I the toughest, roughest, hardest skin, ia speedily made as soft ! and smooth as an infant's ; its chemical properties are so powerful, that the thickest epiderinia which a trophical suu ever tauned into swartnesa can be easily rendered aofl, pliant, clear, and brilliantly ? hue : and it is so highly scented that a delightful fragrance will float the livelong day around the.persou using it! For the mere purposes of the toilet, nothing can surpass it ; as a purifier aud cleanser of the skin nothing can equal it ; as a shaving compound, it is the most delicious article extant, aud no gentleman who values a luxurious tousorial operation should for a moment be without It. If it is valuable to the maiden, wife, mother, father, brother, or lover, it ia if possible more so to the helpless nurseling.whose tender skin so freguently chafed aud sore, cannot have anything more delightfully soothing applied to it than Gouraud's Italian Medicated Soap !

Washington, August 11, 1847. HJf airs in Mexico?The Future. Letters from Monterey and Tamplco, received In this city last evening, dated as late aa the '20th ult., contain no mention of the occupation of the oapltal by (Jenera Scott's army, nor of any engagement on the march thither. Humor, in this instance, aa In the case of the battle of Uuena Vista, may have but anticipated the truth. There is nothing at all improbable In the statement. Nothing has been received here aa yet, calculated to dissipate the very tedious uncertainty existing. The anxiety for news is hourly becoming more painful and absorbing. The papers will send General Taylor to Han Luis. He I will not go, however, unlesa the present views and purposes of the administration should be changed by future olrcumstances. The general, In his last despatoh, dissuaded the Secretary of War from ordering an advance on San Luis, although his own Inclination Is for active service. In a military point of view he deemed it (inadvisable. Had Gen. Taylor advised the step, the Secretary of War would have ordered an advance, aa the lat m? uu uui umy given tue general tn? largest discretion .since the cemmenoement of the war, but has almoit in variably issued bis orders for the direction of tbat column of the army in accordance with the general'* view* and suggestions. No man in the country enter tains a higher opinion of (Jen. Taylor'h military capacity and gallantry, than Mr. Secretary Marcy. It in asserted tbat the volunteer* under Gen. Scott'M immediate command were discharged before the expiration of their term of servioe, in accordanee with Instructions from the Wax Department. Such la not the fact. That step wai taken by General Scott solely on hie owu responsibility. It was kind and considerate, but unwise. No doubt had General Scott pushed on after the annihilation of the Mexican army at Cerro Gordo, he could have taken the capital without the shedding ol one additional drop of blood But that is not the only mistake committed during the war; acd it would be invidious to hold up one alone to titntur*, where there have been many equally deserving reprehension. The question now assumes uuunual Interest?what course will be adopted in case Mexico refuses to make peace after her capital sh.aU have yielded to our arms ? The present views of ihu administration hold the city of Mexico as the terminus of offensive operations. No ulterior course has been resolved upon ; yet I have reason to believe that in such an event the capital and all t'.ie other Important cities, on the seaboard and on the frontier, now in our possession, will be garrisoned. The main body of the anny will remove to some healthy and ! secure position, and the revenues of the country will be made to defray the expenses of this armed establish ment GAI.VIKN8I8 WitHiiinTon, Aug.
