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
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 ROBBINS &

proprietor, and is now made with the same care, skill, and attention, which
first created its immense and unprecedented sales of over one million bottles
annually! It is still sold at 25 cents in large bottles. Two million bottles can
easily be sold in a year when it is again known that the Kathairon is not only
the most delightful hair dressing in the world, but that it cleanses the scalp
of scurf and dandruff, gives the hair a lively, rich luxuriant growth. and
prevents it from turning gray. These are considerations worth knowing. The
Kathairon has been tested for over twelve years, and is warranted as described.
Any lady who values a beautiful head of hair will use the Kathairon. It is
finely perfumed, cheap and valuable. It is sold by all respectable dealers
throughout the world. D. S. BARNES & CO., New York.

Walker Street, N. Y., were awarded a first prize medal at the late Great

of the New York Times says: "Messrs. Steinways' endorsement by the Jurors is

Appliances—the only known means for the rapid and permanent cure of Stammering,
Stuttering, &c. They took the Prize MEDAL at the last London Exhibition, and of
which the Illustrated London News, 2 Aug., 1862, says: "Mr. Bates, of
Philadelphia, shows some small and ingenious instruments for the treatment of

remarkable." For Pamphlets, &c., describing the same, address H. C. L. MEARS,

FORCED OUT OF THE MARKET.
Since the recent discovery in
Brooklyn of the injurious effects of using Coffee adulterated with smut Rye,
many thousands are asking what they shall do, having already suffered so much
from the evil effects of this unfortunate war, and now to be deprived of their
favorite beverage in consequence of the almost prohibitory price, is indeed
really too bad, as it is not only a luxury, but to many thousands almost an
absolute necessity, and he who can furnish a good and healthy article of Coffee
at a fair price is a public benefactor, and is deserving of the gratitude of the
people at large. We have seen and used such an article, known as the "GOLDEN
RULE, COFFEE," of which there are spurious articles in the market. The genuine
is prepared only by GROOM BROTHERS & Co., wholesale grocers, and proprietors of
the golden Rule Coffee and Spice Mills, No. 352 Pearl St. and No. 1 Franklin
Square. It has been analyzed by the eminent chemist J. R. Chilton, of New York,
and we have seen his certificate, in which he says there is nothing in the
Coffee injurious, but, on the contrary, it is very healthy and nutritious (even
for invalids). Drs. Bauer and Palmedo (of the Brooklyn rye-poisoning case
notoriety) also say it is healthy and nutritious. It is sold by many grocers at
the low price of 16 cents per pound, and by using we find that it takes no
greater quantity than we always use of the pure Java and Rio Coffee. All should
