THEATRE:—We learn that the Theatre opens on
Thursday evening next. The Company engaged are
now in town. It is said to be one of the best stocks that
.appeared on the Pittsburgh boards for some years.
During the past few weeks the manager, Mr. Ilicss-
TINO9, has been busily engaged in re-painting and dec
orating the house, which now presents a magnificent
‘.‘cIiANGE FOR THE AMERICAS NoTEs." A reply
to the Dickens's notes, has been published under the a
bove title. It purports toho the production of an Am
erican lady, who writes a series of letters from London
to her frieed in New York. We see it mentioned fuvora

It is for sale by \V. M. Foster, at his Agency iu

ToMATo FIGS.—. \. thY season for tomatoes is now
at hand we republish below a recipe for maltiag tomato
figs, said to resemble Coe raid fr r t iu appeanance and
taste so. closely. as to challenge the nicest scrutiny to
discover the tiff...re:me.
"Take six pounds of sugar to one peck or (16 pounds)
lb, of the fruit. Scald and remove the skin of the fruit in
the usual way. Cook them over a fire, their own juice
being sufficient without the addition of water, until the'
sugar penetrates and they are clarific rl. They are then
taken out; spread on dishes. flattened and dried in the
sun. A small quantity of the svnin slinald be occa
sionally sprinkled ov'r thenh dryinz; after which,
pack them d.iwn in boxes, treating each layer with
• powdered sugar. The :yrun is afterwards conc-litru
tecl and bottled fur use, They keep w ll front year
to year and retain surprisingly their flavor, which is
nearly that of the beat qua:ity of fresh fl g ! The pear
shaped or single tomatoes answer the purpose hest.—
Ordinary brown sugar may be used, a large portion of
which is retained in the syrup."

BABM'S ANTI-ATTRITION METAL.—This
excellent invention for the reduction of friction in
machineryha-s at length been introduced in our city.—
It consists of a lined box, suitable for all revolving and
sliding motions iu the various kinds of machinery,where
great weight or speed are applied; these boxes reduce
friction in a remarkable degree, requiring but little oil,
and are warranted entirely free from the objections
found with those now in use.
These lined boxes have been introduced in many of
the Eastern Rail Roads, and in various manufacturing
establishments in that siktion of country, to which the
limits of an advertisement will not allow us to refer,and
nearly thirty well known superintendents,engineers,ma
chinists and engine builders in the east certify that, "iu
the use of these boxes, friction is reduced in a remark
degree; oil is required only in small quantities, and
the wear is hardly perceptible;during a period in which
a hard metal box of the same thickness would be worn
out; journals running in these boxes attain a smoother!
surface than they have seen ou those which have been
run in any 'other box." They also certify "that the pa
tentee of this improvement has received the highest a
ward oldie Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic's Asso
ciation, for specimens of these boxes, (sonic of which
haul been run on the crank of a locomotive engine more
than ihirlythousand miles,) at the fair of the Institu
tion, held in Boston in September and October, 1841."
The. Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, also awarded
Mr. Babbitt the premium for the improvement in box
es, under the Scott Legacy, which confines such awards
to new and useful improvements.
The Committee on naval affair. reported strongly in
its favor, inconsequence of which the right to use it was
purchased by the Government for $1120,000. The com
mittee refer to, and make a part of their report the let
ters of S. V. Merrick, J. Fatricsun, George C. Read. C.

Mr. S. V. Merrick states that the metal having been
long enough in use to test its merits fully, he has no
hesitation in saving that it is one of the most valuable
improvements that has come to his notice. The effects
produced are: a great diminution in friction; a saying
in oil—one, half or more: an economy in the original
consta uction, the brasses being much lighter; a saving
in repair, the metal lasting longerand being replaced at
a less cost; and a saving in fuel, consequent upon di
The metal has also been introduced with great ad

Remedy for the Infirm:mt.
THE Influenza, which is now in almost a universal
epidemic, is exciting the inventors of patent
medicines to increased exertions in the miffing
but owiti to the general distrust entertained for the
cenemlity of such drugs, people fear taking them.—
The following, however, from a distinguished plrysi.'
cian in New York, Dr. Nelson, we think may be rm.
"The object of the present communication is 10 !slik
ommend a single remedy, cheap and of easy acelbst lb
the poor. and to caution them against an injuricbs abs
in this disease, namely, bleeding, either genettl air 'by
leeches. In all those cages in which the first cIl IsF
symptoms prevail, let the patient smell frequently et
a common salts bottle. (Sims' Aromatic Volatile
Salts are preferred) and by putting the vial to the
mouth to draw a few deep inspirations of volatile tralo.
ter into the lungs. Let this process be repeated two
or three times in an hour, and it will give mote speedy
and greater relief, in all slight cases of the first clam
than any ,other remedy, and will be sufficient for a
cure. ItAvill also be essentially useful in the SeVers
cases; and those of the class of prostration- a few
drops of amonia, or hartshorn. ought to taken inter
nally. A neat way of doing so is to take an old Cash•
ioned mixture called lac ammoniaci. However, it is
as a local remedy, to act on the disordered surface,
that its use is advised. The principles will be recog
nized by all physicians versed in molecular organize.

may do in that instance as they do in all others—act
upon the faith they imbibe." These salts are for sale
