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 & APPLETON, Agents of the
American Watch Company, 182 BROADWAY, N. Y.

variety end completeness of its details, it is believed that the NATIONAL.
ALMANAC far surpasses any previous statistical work on the United States, and
that it must become such a hand-book of reference for every thing appertaining
to our NATIONAL, MILITARY, and NAVAL condition as every person will need.

thousand dollars), and the high price of paper, it is furnished at a very low
