HARPER'S WEEKLY.

[APRIL 18, 1863.

256

THE BRITISH MINISTER AND THE CONSERVATIVE LEADERS.

"The fact is, my dear RUSSEL, these 'Conservative Leaders,' as I call them in my Official Dispatch, no sooner found me at my Hotel, than they pulled off my boots, and fell to kissing my toe. Their appreciation of a lord is truly gratifying, as HARTINGDON will tell you; and when they come into power, as they tell me they will shortly, we shall have everything our own way, and may get Maine for the asking."

[Extract from a private unpublished Dispatch from LORD LYONS to EARL RUSSELL, explanatory of his Official Dispatch published in all the papers.]

American Watches

For Soldiers AT REDUCED PRICES.

American Watches for Americans!

THE AMERICAN WATCH COMPANY give notice that they have lately issued a new style of Watch, expressly designed for Soldiers and others who desire a good watch at a moderate price. These watches are intended to displace the worthless, cheap watches of British and Swiss manufacture with which the country is flooded, and which were never expected to keep time when they were made, being refuse manufactures sent to this country because unsalable at home, and used here only for jockeying and swindling purposes.

We offer to sell our Watch, which is of THE MOST SUBSTANTIAL MANUFACTURE, AN ACCURATE AND DURABLE TIME-KEEPER, and in Sterling Silver Cases, Hunting pattern, at as low a price as is asked for the fancy-named Ancres and Lepines of foreign make, already referred to. We have named the new series of Watches, WM. ELLERY, Boston, Mass., which name will be found on the plate of every watch of this manufacture, and is one of our trade-marks.

Sold by all respectable watch dealers in the loyal States.

Wholesale orders should be addressed to

182 BROADWAY, N. Y.
