The SEMI-WEEKLY ADVERTISER and the DAILY ADVERTISER WEEKLY ISSUE contain substantially the same reading matter as the DAILY ADVERTISER : but less space is occupied with advertisements, of which very few appear in the WEEKLY Issue. Terms of the Semi-Weekly, three dollars per annum ; of the Weekly, one dollar.

All of these papers are printed for mailing on a sheet weighing not over 14 ounces," and are accordingly chargeable for postage at the lowest rate; viz., a quarter of a cent for each paper within the State, when paid quarterly in advance.

A quarter's subscription to the Daily, postage included, thus costs but $2.20 ; to the Semi-Weekly, but $1.07 ; and the Weekly, but 51 cente,

From the Providence Journal. THE BOSTON DAILY ADVERTISER. - This standard paper, that is so thoroughly identified with the business, the prosperity, and the character of Boston, has passed entirely into the hands of Charles Bule, son of Nathan Hale, who founded it forty-eight years ago, and who still gives to its columns the benefit of his ripe experience and large ability. For the dignity and fairness and independence of its conduct, for the fullness and reliability of its news, and for its value to readers and advertisers, the Boston Daily Advertiser stands in the front rank of journalism.

From the National Intelligencer. Tie BOBTON DAILY ADVERTISER.- A paper so wise, so instructive, so cautious, and so truthful, deserves every success ; and its success is a credit to the community which it ably serves and enlightens.

From the New York Snipping List. THE BOSTON DAILY ADVERTISER. - The Daily has long sinee acquired the reputation of being the best marine journal in the country, and as a literary and political publication it ranks deservedly high.

Froni the Newark Daily Advertiser. THE Bostos DAILY ADVERTIBER, which has been an everwelcome visitor, will doubtless continue to be managed with the same dignity, energy, and intelligent appreciation of right prin

ciples which has hitherto rendered it foremost in the history of New-England journalism.

From the Concord, N. H, Statesman. In no newspaper, of which we have knowledge, are political and other editorial articles to be found better calculated to muke intelligent politicians and well-in formed citizens, than the Bogton Daily Advertiser.

From the Salem Register. The substantial and reliable character of the Boston Daily Advertiser has been a "fixed fact" for many years, and the fullness and accuracy of its shipping list and commercial department long ago became a proverb. Its literary reputation, too, is up to the highest standard of daily journalism ; and in politics it is 11 strong and able advocate of the interests of the people. In all points it is a sterling, first-class paper.

From the Dedham Gazette. Honest and decided in the expression of its own views, it is always manly, dignified, and courteous towards those who may differ with it in opinion; and we know of no journal in the Stute that exercises a wider or more wholesome intuence than the Boston Daily Advertiser. It gives us great pleasure thus to be able to chronicle the evidence of the success and prosperity of a paper which has acquired reputation and influence by the force of its inherent truthfulness and merit.

TO CLUBS. - We will send four copies of the Daily Advertiser, one year, by mail, for twenty-five dollars ; five copire for thirty dollars : or ten copies for fifty dollars, – payable invariably semi-annually in advance. We will send the same number of copies of the Semi-Weekly Advertiser for half these rates.

ADVERTISEMENTS ARE INSERTED AT THE FOLLOWING RATES:- For one square, or twelve lines of agate or nonpareil matter, one insertion, one dollar ; each repetition inside, 50 cents; outside, 25 cents. Six lines or less are counted hali a square ; and seven, eight, or nine lines, three-fourths of a square.

Advertisers who prefer a fixed annual charge, by the payment of forty dollars become entitled to the daily paper for one year, and to advertise their own regular business exclusively, to an average extent of one square one outside, or half a square on the inside. Copartnership noticer, wants, removals, stores to be let, &c., are not included in the yearly privilege, and are charged extra, at the regular rates. The same arrangement may be mude for six months, for twenty dollars; or for three months, for fifteen dollans; end for a larger space on the same basis.

BLACK WRITING INK.

Testimony of Parties who have used it for more than a Quarter of a century.

REGISTRY OF DEEDS OFFICE,

Boston, January 10, 1859. Messes. MAYNARD & Noyes - Gentlemen : I am glad that longer use of your Writing Ink enables me to repeat the testimony given in its favor many years ago. I have used it in this office thirty-seven years, and my oldest records are as legible and black as when first written. This rare quality for permanence renders it invaluable for State and County Records, and all mercantile purposes, where it is important that the writing should remain legible and unchanged in color by the lapse of time.

HENRY

ALLINE, Register of Deeds. MAYNARD & NOYES' COPYING INK. This Ink yields a copy as distinct and perfect as the original. It also combines all the properties of our writing ink, for which it can be substituted.

MAYNARD & NOYES' CARMINE INK. This article is a beautiful red or crimson color, and surpassingly brilliant and rich. It is free from sediment, and will not mould, fade, or turn dark by exposure to the air.

DAVIS'S PATENT HOT-AIR RADIATOR,

FOR WARMING AND VENTILATING ROOMS.

ITS SUPERIOR ADVANTAGES.

[graphic][ocr errors]

1. By the use of this Radiator, a whole house, Kitch. en, Parlor, Dining Room, and Chambers, may be warmed by the heat of one fire. The waste heat, before escaping from the chimney, is made to pass into each room through the Radiator, leaving warmth and heat as it goes off again into the flue. The Radiator thus saves and uses the WASTE AEAT from Stove, Range, Furnace, or other fire.

2. It costs less, and secures greater economy of fuel and labor than by any other mode of heating.

3. It secures an agreeable and healthful atmosphere, free from the injurious and unwholesome appoyances of dust and ashes which are inseparable from the use of Stoves and Furnaces.

4. It has great advantages over other modes of beating, in its perfect and simple arrangement for admitting and controlling the introduction of FRESH AIR, and securing free and healthful ventilation.

We have, during the last two years, manufactured and introduced into market

Sixty Thousand Feet, of all sizes, from inch to 3 inches diameter, and have no hesitation in saying, that for the purpose of conducting water it is superior, in every respect, to any other article yet brought into use. It possesses the following properties :

It imparts no deleterious substance to the water, under any circumstances, nor in any way affects it unpleasantly, after a few days' use. It is sufficiently elastic to be easily bent into curves, &c. It is not affected by either heat or cold. It will not burst if water is frozen in it. It is not injured by exposure to the atmosphere or sun.

It may be coiled and transported in almost any way, and (if handled with care) innumerable times, and from its elasticity cannot be easily made to collapse.

Its durability must be great. Samples can be shown which have been in constant use, exposed to the atmosphere, for five years; and, also, some that have been attached to a common house-pump, and buried in the earth for three years, none of which show any sign of decay. In short, this pipe is composed of ingredients which are indestructible, except by fire.

The price at which this article is offered, must, together with its invaluable properties, commend it to all who are in want of pipe for conducting water.

It can be made of any size, from half-inch to three inches or more.

Couplings and suitable connections are prepared, and can be furnished with it, made of a compound metal which will not corrode. Also,
