EXOTIC NURSERY, KING'S ROAD, CHELSEA.
We regard this as a peculiarly favourable opportunity, and therefore avail ourselves of it, to thank our Patrons with sincere gratitude for the continued patronage with which this house, first under the Proprietorship and Management of JOSEPH KNIGHT, and more recently under that of JOSEPH KNIGHT & THOS. A. PERRY, has been honoured for nearly half a century, and to say that, during the whole of that period, increasing efforts have been made, by the extension of our various Collections, to enable us to supply every article connected with Gardening, of the best description. We have now too the satisfaction of adding that our prices, during the last few years, have been very much reduced, and that they are at present as low as a very moderate remuneration will admit of.
In soliciting the countenance and support ot our Patrons, we beg respectfully to call their attention to the following, as being worthy of their notice:—
| 1. HARDY ORNAMENTAL TEEES AND SHRUBS, in which are many novelties.
those of the first Continental Pomologists.
7. VASES, of the most Gardenesque forms; and GARDEN IMPLEMENTS, of such construction as
8. CULINARY, AGRICULTURAL, AND FLOWER SEEDS, of the first quality, and true to name. '.). BULBS, as imported, from the first Growers in Holland.
It is proper for us also to observe that wc still continue, when applied to for GARDENERS, FORESTERS, and LAND STEWARDS, to recommend such only as we have substantial reasons to believe of blameless reputation and of first-rate professional ability.

JOHN D. HAILES' ORRERY GLOBE, registered May 17, 1848, which practically displays Joshua's Miracle Time, May 22, 2548 A.m.; the variation and change of variations of the magnet from the Creation; also change of meridian eastward to Europe, with increase and decrease of latitude at different times and places, and that the magnetic point is the fixed pole of the terrestrial globe, and therefrom, with the centre of sun and pole of world, is obtained the true principle equation of time, which time varies a little nearly at every longitude around the earth. The said globe is now (and has been since June, 1848) exhibited at the Royal Polytechnic Institution, Kegent-street, London; and J. D. H. Continues To CHALLENGE The Learned Of The World
TO DISPUTE ITS PRINCIPLES WITH JUSTICE.—JOHN DAVEY
HAILES, Wigford House, Kingsbridge, Devon.
The above was inserted in the Times of April 10th, June 2nd and 16th, 1843, and Exeter Gazette.
Science, the Lock of Bible Truth, all the JVor) s Divine,
Syene. /say Europe increases in Latitude—Eclipses give past and future
I have reason to believe that Solar with Mean Time varies a little nearly at every Degree of Longitude around the Globe. Forinstanee, in London they agree with each other April 16th, September 1st, and about the time of Summer and Winter Solstices. Not so I think in Ireland. I apprised the Earl of Rosse (who erected the large telescope in Ireland) on November 6th. 1844, and the Royal Society, London, on February 1st, 1845, that I considered these times to agree at the West of Ireland about April 23rd, August 86th, and also near the time of Solstices; but to this date I have received no reply from either party as to correctness or incorrectness.—May, 1881,
England is attaining a greater latitude, exactly in the same proportion as the solstices of the sun are retreating from England, which is yearly, a very small quantity.
The above principle is the true cause of the alteration in the variation of the magnet. JOHN D. HAILES. J 2G7]

TO FOREIGNERS AND VISITORS
GEEAT EXHIBITION. Among the number of objects of interest besides the Exhibition which will engage the attention of the Visitors to the " World's Fair," London shops and their decorations are certain to challenge their notice when perambulating the metropolis. Pre-eminent among these, and in a direct line from the Crystal Palace, stands the extremely elegant Establishment lately opened by
H. P. TRUEFITT,
At 114, Piccadilly; being it branch of his far-famed Establishment at Nos. 20 and 21, Burlington-arcade (established upwards of thirty years). The Front, unequalled, it is believed, in any capital of Europe, is elaborately carved in Caen stone; whilst the spacious saloons for Hair-cutting, and private rooms for Hairdressing, dyeing the Hair, and washing the head, are arranged with exquisite taste, and replete with every convenience. None but Assistants of first-rate talent are engaged; and in the shop will be found a splendid i selection of every requisite for the toilet. The prices are in strict conformity with the economical spirit of the times. The charge for Hair-cutting is One Shilling. Everything in the same proportion.
LADIES' HAIR-DRESSING.—In this department H. P. Trlefitt can now challenge the world, having secured the assistance of artists who are allowed to be unequalled; whilst his frequent visits to Paris secure every novelty in style, w i i h, mi the enormous prices charged by foreigners in this country. Lessons in llnir-dressing, without any extra charge for court hair-dressing. A splendid assortment of Ladies' Fancy Twist Combs—20, 21, Arcade; 114, Piccadilly.
CEETADfTY IN DYEING THE RAIN has at last been thoroughly effected by the "TINCTURA," a fragrant extract, by which any shade in brown or black is produced instantly and permanently. Those who have been deceived by any of the dyes in use at present will appreciate the value of this important discovery. Private rooms, replete with every convenience, are reserved expressly for its application.—114, Piccadilly.
PERFECTION IN WIG-MAKING is accomplished by the introduction of H. P. Triefitt's MEW DIVISION, which combines the durability of the skin with the transparency of the net parting, and perfectly avoids that great objection to ornamental hair, the DARK LINE ON THE FOREHEAD, it being now impossible to discover where the wig commences. This valuable discovery is applicable to ladies' bands, fronts, &c.—114, Piccadilly; and 20, 21, Arcade. Cs 195
