THE advantage of this Fire and Burglar Proof Safe consists in its peculiar construction. The most serious objection to Safes heretofore in use, has been their liability to destruction by tailing from heights, and the impossibility of rendering the doors impervious to heat; particularly in large safes, where the door is double; and, in tact, the whole front of a square sale is door. These and other objections ap plicable to the present mode of making sales, are ob viated by this patent, by constructing it in a cylin drical shape, with convex tops and bottoms, thus se curing the greatest possible strength; and, by mak ing the interior to revolve upon pivots, bringing a smooth, impenetrable surtace of iron entirely across the outer opening, with no inlet or seam. Between this inner compartment and the outer cylinder, is an air chamber, extending completely around, leaving no connection between the two structures but the pivots upon which the interior cylinder revolves. These advantages are manifold; hut we call attention to a singular feature of the in vention ; it is, that the inner safe is moveable, and when the outer door is opened, the surface of the lat ter presents an appearanco that Indicates that the whole sale is a solid mass. The signal importance of this feet is evident; for when the inner safe is unlock ed and made to turn, its door is immediately exposed to view, when the compartments for books, drawers and pigeon holes are exposed. The frame which con tains them is also moveable, and revolves upon piv ots; so that, when pushed around, brings another se ries ol divisions for books, drawers anil pigeon holes to the hand; thus it is double the capacity of square safes. Not only does this system present greater re sistance to fire, but, for the reason that the sheets of Iron cannot part from the filling, and of there being no contact ol the inner with the outer surtace, (ex cept at the pivots, where the filling is made purpose ly thicker,) but the bulging front of the interior sur face, without orifice when turned, is equally proof against burglars." The contour of thi$ safe is more symmetrical and durable than the old style, is susceptible of higher or namentation, and is, from the very nature of the case, easier of transportation, as it can be rolled about like a barrel or a hoop.

Near the Preble lleuae, WHERE he can be consulted privately, and with the utmost confidence by the afflicted, at hours daily, aud from 8 A. M. to 9 P. M. Dr. H. addresses those who are Buttering under the afflictiou of i rivale diseases, whether arising from impure t onnection or the terrible vice of selt-abuse. Devoting his entire time to that particular branch of the medical profession, he feels warranted in Guar anteeing a Cure in all Cases, whether of long standing or recently controcted, entirely removing the dregs of disease from the system, and making a per fect and permanent cure. He would call the attention of the afflicted to the tact of life long-standing and well-camad reputation furnishing sufficient assurance of his skill and suc cess. Caution to the Public. Every intelligent and thinking person must know that remedies handed out for general use should have their efficacy established by well tested experience in the hands of a regularly educated physician, whose preparatory studies lit him for all the duties he must fulfil; yet the country is Hooded with poor nostrums aud cure-alls, purporting to be the best in the world, which are not only useless, but alwavs injurious. The uniortunate should be particular in selecting his physician, as It is a lamentable yet incontroverti ble tact, that many syphilitic patients are made mis erable with ruined constitutions by maltreatment from inexperienced physicians in general practice; tor it is a point generally conceded by the best sypliilogra phers, that the study and management of these come plaints should engross the whole time of those who would be competent and successful in tlieir treat ment and cure. The inexperienced general practi tioner, having neither opportunity nor time to mak himself acquainted with their pathology, commonly pursues one system of treatment, in most cases mak ing an indiscriminate use of that antiquated and dan gerous weapon, the Mercury. no re Confidence. All who have committed an excess of any kind, whether it be the solitary vice of youth, or the sting ing rebuke of misplaced confidence in maturer years, • SEEK FOR AS ANTIDOTE IN SEASON. The Pains and Aches, and Lassitude and Nervous Prostration that may follow Impure Coition, are the Barometer to the whole system.

How finny ThonaandwCaa Tentify to This by Unhappy Experience! Young men troubled with emissions in sieep,—a complaint generally the result of a bad habit in youth.—treated scientifically and a perfect cure war ranted or no charge made. Hardly a day passes but we are consulted by one or more young men with the above disease, some of whom are as weak and emaciated as though they had the consumption, and by their friends are supposed to have it. All such cases yield to the proper and only correct course of treatment, aud in a short time are made to rejoice in perfect health. Middle-Aged Men. There are many men of the age of thirty who are troubled with too frequent evacuations from the blad der, often accompanied by a slight smarting or burn ing sensation, and weakening the system in a man ner the patient cannot account for. On examining the urinary deposits a ropy sediment will often be found, and sometimes small particles of semen or al bumen will appear, or the color will be of a thin milk ish hue, again changing to a'dark and turbid apjiear ance. There are many men who die of this difficulty, ignorant of the cause, which is the SECOND STAGE OF SEMINAL WEAKNESS. I can warrant a perfect cure iu such cases, and a full and healthy restoration of the urinary organs. Persons who cannot personally consult the Dr., can do so by writing, in a plain manner, a descrip tion of their diseases, and the appropriate remedies will be forwarded immediately. All correspondence strictly confidential, and will be returned, if desired. Address: DR. J. B. HUGHES, No. 14 Preble Street, Next door to the Treble House, Portland, Me. Send a Stamp for Circular.
