Lateral Curvature of the Spine,  PERSONS in any part of the United States who are desirous of using the DORMANT BAL.VNCE, are requested to address the subscriber, by letter, under the general direction of Baltimore, >iaryland, which will enable him to make arrangen^ts for the iABj.r application of his patent, with all its attendant exercises, and other inrigorating methods which the peculiarity of the Case mjy absolutely require, as no two cases, strictly speaking, will yield, in the same degree, under similar treatment; nor can the treatment itself be uniform, even in any single case, as the manner, as well as proportion, of exerci8e,&.c. roust be regulated by the gradual removal of the d stortion, as well as the age, strength, and general health »nd habits of the patient. Many cases have yielded to the experiments that were made, and the treatment to which those experiments led, though, ai first, at variance wit!» the opinion of the most eminent professors. By tlie ordinarj' course which is used, the features are often preatly deformed, and the muscles of the cheeks absorbed, the teeth loosened, and, in fiact, pcrmaneat injury, in every way, inflicted, all which is avoided by the methods now recommended, under tlie »auction of the most eminent of the faculty in Boston, New Haven, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Stc.  JAMES K. CASEY. Cj" Hundreds of medical gentlemen of America, of the first character, professional and moral, have given their open and avowed preference to the Dormant Balance, with the aid which it derives from subsidiary methods in the treatment of various cases. Some few, and they are very few, adhere to the use of machines rejected by every one else, as clumsy imitations of the old European method. Mr, Casey's patent was taken to Europe by John D. Ogden, M. D. of the city of New York, a gentleman of ih« first education, respectability, and connexion. Dr. Ogden transmitted to Mr. Casey the handsomest testimonials of the superiority of his method, and, amongst others, as names known to every medical student, he is permitted to mention Magenaie, of Paris, the first physiologist of the age, l>e Fermon, of the same city, Uie medical editor of the Bulletin of Sciences. By these two gentlemen the Dormant Balance was introduced to the favorable notice of the Institute at Paris, and is now under the protection ot the hiw thro'ighout France. In London, amongst others, it receivd the decided recommendation of Copeland, whose uorcs, on distorted and diseased spine, have established his name high £.mongst the most celebrated professors of the British empire. J.

T^HE subscriber has discovered a new system, or modes of procedure, for curing or drying of tobacco, which has been secured to him bjr letters patent, and the right to use whicii he now proposes to sell, through his agents, to the tobacco planters of the U. SUtes, on the following terms : Every planter whose crop shall exceed ten thousand pounds, will be entitled to the privilege of applying the system without limit of lime, after paying, or securing to any of aty agents, twenty dollars ; those whose crops sfiall be leas, after paying, or securing in like manner, ten dollars. Every i^anter who pin'chases a [»nvilege will receive an Essay (which is placed under a copy right) upon tlie curing, management, and cultivation of tobacco, intended as a guide for the applicatiw of tbe system. TItis Esaay extends to sixty octavo pages. Dr. Thomas P. Jones, of Washington City, professor of chemistry in the Columbian Colle|^ t John H. Eu-stace, of the city of Bichntond, Va. ; J. D.Towns, of Petersburg, Va. ; Holconthe and T^e, of Lynchburg, Va. ; and Capt. Henry Edmondi^ df^Halifax county, Va-are authorized agents, and will permit »ny gentleman to examine the system, or essay, who may wish to judge of its utility, or the propriety of adopting it. Other agencies will be established in due time, particularly in the tobacco markets of the Western States. Dr. Thomas P Jones is authorized to appoint agents in the States of Maryland and Ohio.  The system was deduced fimn a series of long continued experiments ; the different quantities of heat, or ranges of temperatures, which dried or cured my last three crops, with their various effects upon the different descriptions of tobacco, were accurately registered. Tlie particular state of the tobacco at the time it was cut, il»e period from the cutting until the heat was applied, the effect of the sun and atmusplkere during tliat period, the dampness and temperature of U»e weather generally, the particular state of the tobacco at the time tbe heat was applied, the effect of the atmosphere upon it whilst the process was in operation, and the various effecU »>f the atmosphere and other ^enU upon the properties of the tobacco afler it was dried, in bulk or in hogshead ; with numerous other incidents, were also accurately registered. This register is retained, and will be hereafter appended to the Essay, if circumstances shall transjiMre to render it necessary. In conducting these experiments a wide latitude was given to them ç but little regard was paid to the aggregate value of the crops ; my great and leading objec's were, to produce all the effects upon the tobacco, or place it in all the various states of which it was susceptible, and to ascertain acciirately the various causes, agents, or circumsunces, which produced those effects, and also how to create and control them. It was my wisli to rest the n»criU of any system which I might deduce from the experiments, upon a tlwrough knowledge of those causes and effects, and not upon the price which the tobacco might command in the market, Cir-cumsUnccs miglit occw, incidentally or otherwise, which would cause a crop to sell for more, or perftaps less, than its real value, but »ion« «m occur to anest the operation of controllable agents, or causes, in producing their légitimité effects. Those parts of the crops, however, to which the system wis applied, were made of superior quality. This assertion, as well as the successful appli-c:iti(m of the system to other crops, when it was in the hands of those who clearly understood and properly applied it, could be easily esUbtished, by the most irrefra-gible testimony. I could also, if 1 chose, introduce recommendatory opinions of g:entlemeti of Wgli standing and great intelligence, k oth» evidence, to show tl»at the sjrstem is a successful exposition of the subject embraced—such aids, however, will not be resorted to. The ») 8tem i.s placed, as all subjecUof any importance should be, before an intelligent community upon its own merits, and unies* it can be thus sustained under the rigid scrutiny of such a community, it ought, and I am perfectly willing it should, receive lU marked disapprobation.
