the sum is not the required amount, send me one box, and let me know what is the

The high premium on gold, and the
increased rate of duty on watches, have greatly enhanced the cost of those of
foreign manufacture, and it is now impossible to purchase a good watch, of
English or Swiss. make, except at a very extravagant price. For the same cause,
the cheapest qualities of foreign make, the worthless incres and Lepines which
used the country, have nearly risen to the price at which the American Watch
Company furnish their well-known "Wm. Ellery" watch—a watch of the most
substantial manufacture, and an accurate and durable time-keeper. Our higher
priced watches are relatively still cheaper. We have advanced the prices of our
finer movements but about 25 per cent. since the war began, while foreign
watches of the same grade cost three times their ante-war prices. Wholesale
orders should be addressed to ROBBINS & APPLETON, Agents for the AMERICAN WATCH
Co., 182 Broadway, New York.

" The equipage at Newport which
throws all others into the shade is that of Mr. BELMONT, Chairman of the
Democratic National Committee. It consists of a low barouche drawn by four
elegant, fiery thoroughbreds, with postillions mounted on the left or near horse
of each pair. Two footmen in extreme livery are suspended from a high seat on
the back of the carriage. The men are peculiarly well formed, having been
selected and trained in Europe with especial reference to their build and the
size of their calves; their livery is imported at a cost of $1000 a suit. The
horses are valued at $25,000, the carriage at $5000, and the harness and other
trappings at $3000. The stables of the Democratic Chairman are said to contain
some forty horses, valued at from $1000 to $8000 each."—Letter from, Newport, in
the New York Evening Post, August 26, 1864.
