The Coal Trade.
The Pennsylvania Railroad is doing an ex
tremely large and yearly increasing business in
the transportation of coal. Last year, nine hun

ninety-one tons were carried over it, being one

amount carried the previous year. This 'exceeds
the entire product of the Cumberland coal re
Rouse Keeping Goods.
To obtain really good articles, and at a moderate
rate, is a great object to housekeepers ; and to
tell where such may be had, is to give an import
ant item of news. Let, then, those who would
supply themselves, call in Philadelphia at the
corner of Seventh and Chestnut Streets. Persons
who cannot rely on their own judgmhnt, may be
certain that there no imposition will be practised.
Those who would order what they want, may do
so with perfect oonfidence that they will be fairly
dealt with, both as to quality and terms. See

Another Instance of Tape Worm
Cured by the Use of Dr, AP barm'e Celebrated Ter

NEW Yom r, Oot. 15, 1852
This is to certify that I was troubled with a
tape worm for more than six months I tried all
the known remedies for this dreadful affliction,
but without being able to destroy it. I got one
of Dr. M'Lane's Almanacs, which contained
notices of several wonderful cures that had been
performed by his Celebrated Vermifuge, pripared
by Fleming Bros. I resolved to try it; and im
mediately purchased a bottle, which I took ac
cording to directions; and the result was, I dis
charged one large tape worm, measuring more
than a yard, besides a number of small ones.

In response to an inquiry in Parliament, Lord
John Russel said the Government had no reason
to suppose that warlike preparations were going

The London Time, in an editorial article, ex
plains the present position of the San Juan diffi
culty. It says:
" We have reason to think that the proposals
made to the Americans are such as may fairly
satisfy both Governments. Instead of standing
out for the Rosario channel and the whole group
of Islands, as against the Hero channel and no
one of them, a third channel is proposed for the
boundary line, which will not only evade the two
disputed courses, but will leave the Americans in
possession of the largest share of the disputed
territory. This channel, in its course, outs off
the island of San Juan alone to the West, and
coneequently leaves us this island only, while the
Americans will retain the remainder. So con
siderable, in fact, is the concession thus made,
that it reasonably suggests a little compensa•
tion, and we believe the American Government
will be asked to give ns the whole of a certain
coast of headland , which the forty.ninth parallel
now outs in two We do sincerely hope this
reasonable proposal will be accepted."
Lord John Russel bad announced to Parlia•
ment that the Government could not produce the
correspondence called for: with France, relative
to the rumored annexation ot Savoy to France.
But he said that Count Walewski had assured
Lord Cowley that the Emperor bad no intention
of proposing ooh an annexation, and the British
Government had sent a dispatch expressing sat

France and England, and it has been formally

previously sanctioned by the unanimous approval
of all the great European Powers.' Practically,
such a condition is tantamount to abiolute noth,

Sardinia as the only true solution of the present
Rumors were current that the Chalons' Camp
would soon be re established.
The Patric pronounces se false the statement of
an approaching departure of the French troops
from Rome. The same journal says it appears
certain that the question of, annexation to Central
Italy will be subordinate to the result of univer
sal suffrage. All the Powers are agreed as to
tie propriety of that measure, the early applica
tion of which will positively make known the
state of public opinion in Italy.

The French protectionists were making des
perate efforts against the Emperor's proposed
commercial reform. Petitions were being numer
ously signed in all the manufaituring towns
against the measure.. On the other hand, the
Emperor continued to receive congratulatory
addresses from important commercial bodies.
The pamphlet "Le Pape et le Congress,"
which, without seeking its authority, no one can
contest: the importance of the letter of Napoleon
to the Pope; the speech of the Qaeen of Eng
land, and the speech of Lord Palmerston in the
House of Commons, are foots which show the
impossibility of the restoration of the ancient
rule in Italy. It is certainiithat the Congress
will not be assembled for the present. The Gov;
ernment of Central Italy being satisfied on their
part, wished also to satisfy these provinces by
proclaiming the law of Sardinia, and for political
reasons •for the present only announcing these

will never fail in his responsibility for the tran
quility of Europe and pacification of Italy.

Austria is said to be directing more troops
toward Tyrol, Venice, and Hungary.
The Globe'. Paris correspondent says it was
generally understood that France and England
were about to make a joint summons to Anstria
to desist from sending troops into the marshes of
Ancona, and to evacuate Venioe at the earliest
period, and accept such indemnity as they are
now ready to offer.

now is, how the de facto annexation shall be

to decide whether they ought, as subjects of
Victor Emanuel, to take their places in the Na•

the decision will be in the affirmative.
The Hungarian Protestant Association left

The Hungarians demand the restoration of all
the rights and privileges of their Church, and

THE CHEAPEST DICTIONARY,
BECAUSE /T IS THE BEST
To those who have had no opportunity to eastehm even
specimen sheets of the work, we present the following ex
tract§ from letters received by the learned author in com
mendation of the work. It will be aeon that they are from
no ordinary source; but that they embrace the opinions of
some of the most eminent scholars in the country.
JAMES WALKER, LL.D., President of Harvard College,
"The beauty of the page will attract attention, while
the correctness of its orthography, and the neatness of Da
definitions and method of notation- together with its
greater general completeness and Uorongliness, as the
latest of the great Dictionaries, will make it an authority
among scholars everywhere."
PROP. C. 0. PIOLTON. of Harvard College, says:
I congratulate you on the successful accomplishment of
this crowning work. It is destined, without a doubt, to be
the standard Dictionary of our language.

many years your former Dictionary has occupied the place
of honor upon my study table. Ido notmean by this state

give you one. It is but a short time since that t was led to
commend another Dictionary, as on the whole, and with
some exceptions the best and most complete thing of the
kind within my knowledge. The commendation was hon
estly given at the time; but now it must be withdrawn in
favor of yours. I consider your Dictionary, in almost
every respect—in Orthography, Pronunciation, and Dalai..

never expected to see an English Dictionary so' thorough

Mn BURNETT take pleasure in stating the wonderful
effects of " Whitcomb's Remedy for the Asthma," on my
w ifo. She had suffered for years more than my pen can
describe, with the spasmodic form of that terrible dfeeme.
As often as ten or twelve times in a year she was brought
to the very gates of death, requiting two or three watchers
sometimes, for several days and nights in succession. At
times, for hours, it would seem as if every breath must be
the last. We were obliged to open doors and windows in
mid-Winter, and to resort to every expedient that affection
con'd devise to keep her alive. At one time she was so far
gone that her phteician could not count her pulse At
length I heard of " Whitcomb's Remedy." It acted like a
charm. It enabled her to sleep quietly in a few minutes.

I shall be happy to answer any inquiries respecting her
me, and you are at liberty to make any use of the fore
going facts that will benefit the afflicted. Yours, truly,

GENSLEMIN:...it is now nearly twelve months since I re.
eared the first bottle of your valuable medicine for the'
cure of the /Whim I was determined to give it a thorough
trial. and fa convince myself that it wee through its effect
that I was beteg so much benefited, before I wrote you. I
ern now satisfied that my relief frm one of the most aggro,
vating, wet diatressing and most unrelenting disorders
that ever afflicted a human being, tato be attributed wholly
to this remedy. Par thirteen years I suffered with the
Asthma, and during that time there were but few months
in which I did not auffar with a paroxysm that entirely
prostrated me for two or three days, and sometimes longer.
It grew anon me in severity, until, in 1853 and 1854. I was
obliged for months together, to sleep In my chair ; and the
least active exercise would bring on a pa oxysm oftentimes
so Revere that I could not move an look for hours. But it
i.e useless for me to describe the tortures of the spasmodic
asthma. Those for whom this is intended know full well
what it is, and I will merely say, that from the time I took
the first dose of your "Remedy" to the present hour, I
have not had a bad attack, and now my system is so free
from It that the most active exercise and exposure seldom,
has any other effect than to slightly restrict the lungs.
Your medicine soon dispels that sensation, and I can safely
claim a general release from the tormentor.

until I had thorough y• tested the medicine, (Whitcomb's

lions kinds of medicine, leaving no permanent good effects.
Thee have I tried more than thirty different specifies for
the Asthina4 until I had become worn down by disease, and
ainiost dlsenuMged. When I commenced taking - your
medicine, I had been afflicted with the chemise about twenty
years. It ie of the stsaimoodic kind; and in a bad attack I
have frequently eat up sixteen nights in succession. Boon

WE HAVE JUST PUBLISHED
An Entirely New Work, Called
AMERICAN CHRISTIAN RECORD,
To which we respectfully invite attention. It is an acthen•
tic and complete book of reference on all current religious
toplcsand all rellgioae events of the year; will contain
A Classified and Statistical Record of Religions and Moral
Aesoclationn in the 'United States and Europe ;
The History, Oonfasekm of Faith, and Present Statistics of
Each of the Religious Denominations of the United
States and Europe;
Statistics of Moral, Benevolent and Bdricational Inetitm

Eminent Christians Who Have Died During the Year ;

List of Generous Contributors to Christian Enterprises
Daring the Year;
The above is given more to convey an idea of the general
character of the work than as an irides to As voluminous
contents, which will embrace everything of interest to iu
tellivint religious minds.
We believe a genial record like this, to which every
one might turn for authentic intimation on all topics of
current religions Interest, hoe long been wanted, and would
be found of great coavenince. not oni- to clergymen and
other church officers, but tooll interested in the moral and
religions movements of the age. has: been the aim of
the publishers to supply this want, and in Mg ANEW-
Cliff Off RISTIA.CI B.BOORD to present a work which would
- all Christians familiarly t 'understand one another's
faith, efforts and strength, Iry which each should be able
to read tho poet and preeent story of his particular denom•
'nation and compare it with that of others; and in which
all might perceive at a glance, first, the efforts of indi
vidual institution*, and then the result of .their united
operations throughout the entire world. -
In conclusion, we venture to say, that so vast an amount

A NEW ERA IN
During the last fourteen years some four hundred patents
have been granted on Inventions designed_ to lighten the
drudgery of family Sewing, and at • the same time to pro-
dace a machine that could be profitably used for manufac
turing purposes; bat, strange to say. out of this large
number of thawing Machines only ome half dozen have
teen proven to be of praetical, value •, and of this small
number not ore has in it sombleed the advantages of a
family and manufacturing machine There are Aare°,
heavy, noisy, cumbrous, and complicated machines, de.
signed for heavy work, that answer the purpose very well;
while there are others of light mechanism and delicate
adjustments, which perform on light work to adva:Aege;
and while the former are exclusively confined to heavy
work, the latter are of little value except on light fabrics.
Therefore I take great pleasure in stating the impoitant
hot that Mr. WWII, the original inventor of. sewing
Macbines, has recently perfected his Shuttle Machine so as
to combine, in a much smaller space and with far less
machinery, the strength and durability of, the manufac
turing machines, and, at the same time possessing that
delicacy of movement Mid ease of operation peculiar to the
family machine., and which renders this the only machine
in market capable of working ~EQU ALLY WNW. THE
