By his Majesty's Royal Letters Patent. IMPROVEMENT IN THE ARCHITECTURAL

OF In consequence of the increasing demand for MR. Hiort's Patent Flues or TUNNELS, and the numerous enquiries that are daily made respecting their utility and efficacy, the Patentee has been induced to publish A SUPPLEMENT to his Treatise, containing HINTS TO BUILDERS, relative to the proper diameter of Flues, to be introduced in the various apartments of Houses, and other matters interesting to persons who contemplate Building or altering Chimneys.

Those persons who bave already purchased the Treatise, will be supplied, gratis, with the Supplement, and references, hy producing their cops to the Publishers.

The Treatise and Supplement are printed and published, for the author, by Winchester and Varnham, 61, Strand.

Extract from the Literary Gazette, Sept. 2, 1826.-.-" This very clever and useful volume, on one of the most important, though generally most neglected, parts of a house, is explanatory of a new method of Building Flues or Smuke. Tunnels, for which Mr. Hiort lately obtained a patent, as was noticed in the Literary Gazette some months ago. It points out the malformation of cbimneys constructed upon the common system, demonstrates the causes of their smoking, and supplies a remedy, which, among other advantages, supersedes the necessity of building the stacks to such frightful heights as they are now raised, renders unnecessary the cruel and inhuman practice of sweeping by climbing boys, and decreases very much the risk of accidents by fire.

“ The work, which is illustrated by several well engraved plates, describing all the minutiæ of the invention, contains a great deal of very useful information, both to Architects and operative Builders, and much interesting matter to all who concern themselves with building, or enjoy a seat by their own fire-sides."

A suit of Superfine for £1. 183. at 146, Leadenhall-street.

A Superfine Cloth Great Coat at 60s. Merchants and Captains supplied with every article in the trade, at the lowest Prices, and shortest notice, it being understood that no Credit can be allowed.

Switzerland or Antiscorbutic Electuary.

The great balsamic qualities contained in the herbs of which this Electuary is composed, render it a certain antidote 'to scorbutic and other complaints incidental to the Teeth and Gums, and affords instant relief to the Tooth Ache; it will also preserve the Teeth from decay, prevent those injured by neglect from becoming worse, effectually arrests the progress of those beginning to be affected; it imparts a most prepossessing sweetness to the Breath, as well as giving a healthy freshness to the Gums and a whiteness to the Teeth, peculiar to itself; it is unrivalled for cleansing and removing the Tartar without injuring the Enamel.

This Electuary is the production of one of the most eminent Physicians of Switzerland, who, by a long and constant practice in scorbutic cases, and unwearied exertions, has discovered the above efficacious and certain remedy. At bis departure he gave this invaluable recipe to his friend, an eminent gentleman of Germany, who has used it many years in his family, and wbich has now been secured to the Proprietor, J. Paterson, 57, Gracechurch-street, where it is sold in pots of various sizes.

It is only required to dip the brush, which must be dry, into the Electuary, and rub the Teeth well; afterwards to rinse the mouth with water, and great satisfaction will be experienced in the result. The trial of a single pot will sufficiently prove its esteemed value.

A good set of teeth has always been considered so necessary to beauty, that it has been said a person could not be plain that possessed them; and Lord Chesterfeld remarks, that their appearance adds considerably io the prepossession formed on the mind at first sight, and we may add, that a good set of teeth identifies health, cleanliness and beauty, wbile from yellow, black, or carious teeth, we turn with loathing and disgust; nor is their beauty aloue the only consideration, they are actually necessary for the preservation of bealth, as the proper division, contusion and blending of the food with the saliva is actually necessary for digestion. In these points of view we ought to be extremely careful in preserving that, which when once lost, can never be recovered.

Cook's Patent Life Preserver for Carriages

The Morning Post of Wednesday last contains a letter to the Editor from a Gentleman in Hampshire, stating that he has had his Stanlope fitted with the above invention for several months past, and that after many trials' of the merits of the plan, with horses of various tempers, he, without any hesitation, can justly recommend it as a most meritorious invention, &c. &c. Thousands of Noblemen, Ladies, and Gentlemen, have already visited the Manufactory, 127, Long Acre (where orders are now executing), to inspect the Chariot and the Stanhope, fitted with this contrivance, which is intended to prevent the melancholy accidents arising from the running away of horses in gigs, carriages, and stage coaches. With it attached, the driver, or (sbould he be thrown from his seat) a Lady inside, can with the greatest ease pull in a pair or four horses, by the simple method of applying the power of one of the wheels to a cyliuder, from which a single catgut rein, covered with leather, is led to their bits. They are thus gently drawn up, inch by inch, in the distance of thirty or sixty yards, as may be required, and freed again

in an instant, at pleasure. With it the horses are prevented from starting off, in the temporary absence of the driver from his seat. The plan has been tried and approved of by respectable stage coach proprietors. If stage coaches are fitted with it, passengers need not be under any apprehension from the horses running away. If they are not fitted, a heavy responsibility must rest on those who so far disregard the safety of their passengers, in cases of fatal accidents. Hamane proprietors will naturally wish to protect their passengers as much as is in their power, especially when such a security will evidently have a tendency to fill their coaches.
