    Simmons & Day, Marble workers and wholesale dealers in Marble, Limestone, Free-stone and Granite, at Nos. 21 and 28, Bleecker street, Utica, are without doubt the largest dealers in their line of goods in Central New York. Being agents, they have peculiar advantages for obtaining the best Scotch Granite, direct from the granite beds of "bonnie Scotland," and can supply dealers at a discount from New York city prices. In a brief notice like this, it would be impossible to detail the many advantages to be derived by purchasing either finished work or the raw material of this enterprising firm. To the dealer we would suggest that as Messrs. Simmons & Day are the most extensive buyers in this section of the State, they undoubtedly buy cheaper than others, and consequently can afford their goods at the lowest market rates.

    Hayden Brothers, proprietors of the Retail Woolen Mills, at Port Byron, have long been celebrated as being manufacturers of desirable and reliable goods. The establishment was started in 1824 as a small custom mill. Since then the greatly increased business has called for extensive additions and improvements, which have been made; and to day their cloth is known and worn in every county in the State and every State in the Union. They use only the best qualities of wool, entirely free from waste or shoddy, and employ only experienced and careful workmen who strive to maintain the reputation their goods have ever borne among their retail customers. Two years ago they opened a store at No. 29 Warren street, Syracuse, where they keep full lines of all goods of their manufacture. Farmers, mechanics and business men generally, can make good bargains by calling at the store, where Mr. J. W. Gates, the manager, will be pleased to give them good goods at advantageous terms.

    The Reynold's Steel Tempering Works, Reynolds, Barber & Co., Proprietors, at Auburn, are largely engaged in the manufacture of Reaper and Mower Knives, Plane Irons, Chisels &c. The process by which they temper steel is a peculiar one, and as patented by Mr. Reynolds, is the result of over forty years labor. This gentleman always worked on the plan that tempering steel was simply changing it from a fibrous to a granular state. He certainly has succeeded in producing a finer granulation (temper) than has ever before been produced. Messrs. Reynolds, Barber & Co., control the patents for these processes, and are applying them successfully in all their manufactures. - Their establishment is capable of turning out an immense amount of work, yet their orders are now, and have been for some months, accumulating far in advance of their present ability to supply; a circumstance which they will not long allow to be the case. We predict that the time is not far distant when all Mower and Reaper Factories and farmers will use their improved sections. See their advertisement on page 6, fronting the Introduction.

It is with pleasure that we call the attention of our subscribers to the Doctor's advertisement, believing that we are thereby rendering essential service to the afflicted by informing them where they will find relief. To be convinced that the Dr. performs what he promises, a person has only to look into his office and see the crutches, canes, &c., left there by those who have been so far benefited as to have no further use for such assistance. We would say to all who need medical advice, that Dr. Henion is prepared to give it, and to render essential aid in all cases where there is any hope of relief. If their case is past hope the Dr. will be honest and tell them so.

    Important Knowledge. --- As music is now an indispensable necessity in every household, any reliable information is valuable as to the best place to buy musical instruments. We have been acquainted for years personally with the firm of Redington & Howe, and have known of their business facilities. We know that no House between New York and Chicago can compete with them successfully, as their facilities are unequaled. In addition to the immense capital at their control, they have special contracts with several leading first-class manufacturers, whereby they buy cheaper than any other dealers in the United States anywhere. Their immense trade requires only a small profit on each one of their many transactions to ensure them a handsome income. Their terms are most highly liberal. And another important consideration is that their treatment of their customers is perfectly honorable, a very important matter in the purchase of such a complicated affair as a musical instrument. Their recommendation of instruments can be depended on implicitly. --- This we know from an extensive acquaintance among hundreds to whom they have sold instruments. We advise our readers to give them a call, or certainly to write to them before deciding on the purchase of a Piano Forte, Organ or Melodeon, or any musical merchandise. See card on Co. Map.

He is also daily receiving the choicest brands of Finishing Lime, viz: "BALD MOUNTAIN," GLENS' FALLS and "ROCKLAND FINISHING."
