Robert E. Lee Portrait
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unpublished Dispatch from LORD LYONS to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.]

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
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
Sold by all respectable watch
