MIDDLETOWN, Sept. 24, 1841.
Dear sir.—Feeling that I owe a duty to the public,
as well as yourself, in communicating facts which may
benefit my fellow mortals, I would just state, that 1
have been afflicted with the diarrhoea; and having tried
the various prescriptions recommended, with but little
effect. a short time since my eye caught a notice in one
of the newspapers, of your "Concentrated Vegetable
Syrup," for the cure of the Diarrhma, for sale in this
city. 1 immediately purchased abottle, and to my
surprise and entire satisfaction, after the trial of a few
doses, was healed of my complaint, and restored to a
healthy action in my bowels. I can now say, I would
not be without it in my possession on any accoune, and
would advise all who may require its use to try it as I
have done, and they will be satisfied of its virtues.
You at liberty, Sir, to make such use of this as you
may deem proper,
Very respectfully yours,

BEAUTIFUL raised Medallion and Fashion plate,
just received by W. IV. Foster, at his Agency
and Literary Depot, St. Clair st. aug 15--4 t
excellent invention for the reduction of friction in
machinery has =length been introduced in our city.—
It consists of a lined box, suitable for ail revolving and ,
sliding motions in 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 section of country, to which the
limits ofun advertisement will not allow us to refer,and
nearly thirty well known superintendents,engineers,ma
sts and engine builders in the east certify that, "in
the use of these boxes, friction is reduced in a remark
able 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 smooth&
surface than they have seen on those which have been
run in any other box." They also certify "that the pa
tenter of this improvement has received the highest a
ward of the Massachusetts Charitable Mechanic's Asso
ciation, for specimens of these boxes, (some of which
had been run on the crank of alocomotive engine more
than thirty thousand miles,) at the fair of the Institu
tion, held in Boston in September and October,lB4l."
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 affairs reported strongly in
its favor, in consequence of which the right to use it was
purchased by the Government for $20,000. The com
mittee refer to, and make a part of their report the let
ters of S. V. Merrick, J. Erricson, George C. Read. C.
\V. Copeland, Corn. L. Warrington, Hon. A.IP. lip
shur, and Charles Howard, recommending the inven
Mr. S. V. Merrick states that the metal having been
long enough in use to test its merits fully, he has no
hesitation in saying 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 saving
in oil—one half or more: an economy in the original
construction, 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
minished friction."
The metal has also been introduced with great ad . -
vantage, in lining carriage and wagon boxes, for which
i s well adapted.
It is also, amongst many others, strongly recommen
ded by Mr. Charles Howard, President of the Balti
more and Susquehanna Railroad Company, who par
cnased the right fur the road,a distance of seventy miles,
for CLOW. Mr. Howard gives the article the follow
ing recommendation:
"The price was considered a high one, for the com
paratively limited extent to which the Company would
have an opportunity of making use of the patent right;
but we were satisfied that it was for our interest to a
vail ourselves of the invitation. I can now say, that,
having better tested its value by a more extensive ap
plication of it, I think that the company would be very
unwise to relinquish their right to use it for a much high
er consideration than that which was given for it; and I
have no doubt, that if such a proposition were to be
made to the Company, it would, without hesitation, be
The great merits of the invention are, that it prevents
the heating, and consequent cutting and destruction
of the bearings, which are so numerous on the steam
engine; and on the perfection of which depends the val
ue of the engine; while, at the same time, there is a
very great saving of oil, the expenditure forms a mate
rial item in the cost of working a large engine. In the
locomotives of the company. I Lind the saving to be ful
ly one half of the quantity which was required before
Mr. Babbitt's inventicni was applied to them. Some
of those locomotives having run several thousand miles
I can also say that this invention makes the machinery
much more durable, so that while the effective power
of the machine is increased, the cost of repairs is di

or three times in an hour, and it will give more
and greater relief, in all slight cases of the fiat= -
