PA.ILY POST. PITTSBURGH, THURSDAY, AUGUST 17, 1843 tiZrEnr business cards, &c., see first page RATKOND & WiRING'S MEN ACEILIE.—Tbis splen did collection of animals, as will be seen by referring to the advertisement of the proprietors, will be in this city on the 23d, and , remain for three or four days. This we understand is considered the most magnificent exhibition of the kind that has ever visited our part of the country, and as there has been no " lion show" with us for some years, we have no doubt but it will be well patronised while is remains. A detailed notice of it will be found in the advertisement. MP' The American advertises a political theatrical performtussa which is to ,"come off" in Wilkins town ship on Saturday next. We do not tlupposc that the entertainment will take place exactly as act down in re A•bi ll s of the day," but if it should, it will not be more ridictilous than many-of the other clap-traps resorted to °flats years by the whigs and blue noses to catch the applause of the groundlinga that believe in their political doctrines. DAILY AslRCA!.—Hereafter the American will be 'antorning paper. The editor makes this new at nultigemtnt for the purpose of furnishing his readers widtearlier news than they can receive through an evening journal. Biddle has put himself to unnecessa ry trouble in this matter: if he had waited until after thri denim he might have issued a mourning paper wisisaut changing his publication hours; and no fur the nemv it will make littlo odds to his readersat what thee they get it tken. The editor of the Sun defends his predecessor—Mr. 18. ElRlLLT—against the attack made upon him by the editor of the Age. As far as our knowledge of Mr. E. extends, we consider the attack of the Age entirely nirsjustiftaide, and believe with the Sun, that personal intimosily is not sufficient ground to induce an editor to penotusce a citizen of respectable standing a "no torious-blackguard." We are informed that the statements that appeared in die Chronicle and Age, respecting the conduct of constable Mc'Kelvy while apprehending some disor d stiy tsegroes a few days since, aro untrue in nil impor tint! particulars. A gentleman who has the best oppor -,.:,: forknowing, tells us that a more efficient officer than Mr. Mc'Kelvy cannot be found in either city or county, and that there are none on whotn he could cc ly with more confidence to perform the duties of con ;table faithfully. The statement that he was in tosicated at the time he made the arrest is a falsehood of the grossest kind, as he does not drink liquor at any thee. Weintve no doubt but our neighb.irs were imposed upon in this matter, and by misrepresentations induced to dogroatinjustice to a faithful officer, who in attempt *Flo gitotharge his duty where law and decency were to tot flagrantly outrage& was b:utally assaulted and mkt* have been murdered by the infuriated gang lorkase haunt of vi . .to and debauchery• he had been in stnacted to break up.

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.

BABBIT'S ANTI-ATTRITION METAL—This 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 tion. J. D. DAVIS, Auctioneer 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 declined. 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 mirdslwd." . .
