OFFICERS AND SOLDIERS OF THÈ REVOLU TION, AS WELL AS THOSE OF THE LATE WAR, can command the services of the undersigned, on moderate terms, if they will address to him, postage paid, statements of their services, and of such claims as they think themselves entitled to. To local agents who may confide their .claims generally, he will communicate im portant information from time to time, and will abate a reasonable proportion of his charge. To all who may request them, forms and instructions will be furnished Congress has of late been very liberal towards those who shared in tiie toils and dangers of the Revolution.  Ist. Tfwte who enlisted for and during the war, in the Continental Line, and served to its close, secured to themselves, or heirs, a right, either to land, or pay, under th« act of 1828, if now living, or if they have died since the 3d of March, 1826 ; and of most of those there are lisU extant. ^  2d. TJiose-rvho belonged io the Continental Line,'''and served nine months in conlinuily, and are now living, as well as those who served but 'six months at different periods in the Continental Line, State Troops, or Militia, are entitled to pensions under the acts of 1818 and 1832.  3d. Such of either of the foregoi iisr classes, who have been wounded in actual service, are moreover and in addition entitled to an invalid pensiorr.  4ih.

Besides those acts of a general nature, there are others , which provide for the payment of half pay to the officers , of the Virginia State Line for Land Scrip in lieu of Vir- ' ginia or Revolutionary warrants, and for the redemption of final settlement certificates; and, as Congrtss has virtually repealed the limitation act, the undersigned es pecially tenders his services to the officers of the Continental Line, their heirs and claimants, who have not ob tained commutation or half pay. Every species of claims, (especially those under Indian Treaties,) whether before Congress, or to be adjusted in the Public Offices, or by tlie Board of CommiaBioners, or against individuals, he will attend to, as, when necessary, he will have the aid ot counsel learned in the law. He rests his claims to confidence on long experience in the transaction of public business, and on an extensive acquaintance with officers of the late war, in which he had the honor to command a regiment ; and to those of the Revolution he would say that it will be his pride to serve those now, as it was that of his father to serve with them. To each and every Member of Congress from New Jersey he would especially refer, as well as to the following gentlemen, viz. : Gen". John Chandler, Maine; . Gen.

Aug 20—eotSepl  - PROSPECTUS  of thk  JOURNAL OF UUMANITY,  kutt  Herald of the American Temperance Society.  FOUnTH volume to commesck mat 24, 1832.  1*HIS PAPER is designed priticipally, to promote the cause of temperance; and incidentally,to disseminate sound principles on the subject of religion, morality, education, science, literature, and other topics of newspaper discussion and remark. It is adapted tor general circulation, withovit reference to any particular section of the country; and in accordance with this plan, party politics, and a partizan interference with questions afTccting sectional interests, sre scmpluously avoided.  The materials for a paper of this character are abundant. Experience has proved that for a temperance newspaper to be dull and uninteresting,is not as has been feared, a necessary evil. The discussion ot questions vitally important—such as the duty of churches, the immorality of the traffic, and the illegality of the license system; tlie publication of copious intelligence respecting temperance societies; the reports of agents; accounts of meetings, and of successful efforts; statistics, facts, practical results of every kind; .appeals both to the understanding and to the heart; every thing which industrious argument can suggest as likely to promote the cause of temperance, combine to give interest and value to such a paper. In addition to these resources, all the elements of a family newspaper are at hand, presenting ample scope for the exercise of editorial tact and talent. Instead of being at a loss for interesting matter, the great task of the editor is judiciously to Select and skilfully to condense from the ample materials at his command.  The Journal of Humanity has a liberal and increasing patronage in every quarter of the Union; and this fact, together with other expressions of the continued confidence of the friends of temperance throughout the country, presents conclusive and gratifying evidence ef the estimstion in which it is held. The commencement of a new volume affords favorable opportunity fjpr subscribing. A copy will be sent for examination gratuitously, to any town in the United States, if application be made to thu publishers, post paid.  TERMS.  1. For single subscriptions, $2 50 tn adtw»«: or f3 00 in six months.  2. Any person who will pay $10 In advance, free of postage, shall receive five copies for one year.  , 3.

A further discount will be made to those Temperance Societies or companies of individuals, who may wish to become responsible for twenty copies or upwards.— Applications on this subject will receive prompt attention.
