I ^IIE heading of our Circular sufficiently indicates the basis of our system, viz.—that of supplying the Public with Teas and Coffees I at Wholesale Prices for Ready Money. This announcement may appear somewhat presuming; and the question may naturally arise—How one party can sell at Wholesale Prices, while another requires a Retail Profit? The answer is simply this Our arrangements are identical with those of the largest Wholesale Establishments, and framed on the most Economical Scale. Our Warehouse, situate in a bye thoroughfare, is one of the most spacious in London, and affords the Greatest Facilities for the most Extensive Transactions, and is entirely unencumbered with those merciless expenses inseparable from the show of a Retail Shop, and for which indirectly the purchaser is taxed. Our business, the parent of many branches, extending throughout the United Kingdom, is of such magnitude, that our purchases arc necessarily large, and we thus derive every advantage the market anbrds." It will, therefore, be seen that we are in a position to supply the public on ? worujmivuZ tvi wts—-in fact, to supply at first hand by which all intermediate profits are saved. | In quoting a partial selection of our priecs, we have appended a few recommendatory remarks, and we wish particularly to be understood as holding ourselves responsible for each character so appended. We mention this, in consequence of the too frequent practice of late-particularly in the Tea Trade—of gulling the public with false alluring titles-and while some arc distributing their rubbish at half a crown a pound, others adopt the ingenious appellation of best Black Tea, which, for quality, is on a par with Best Hats 4s. 9d.; Best Boots, 8s. 6d.; and Best Coats, a Guinea. It is, in point of fact, pretty candid confession that they do not keep the finer descriptions of lea. The following List is composed from the Latest and most Favourable Quotations in the Market. BLACK TEAS. 8. d. Goon ORDINARY CONGOU ( a very fair common Tea) .2 8 GOOD USEFUL CONGOU (a useful Tea, decidedly cheap) .3 0 STRONG COXGOU TEA (a very good Tea for domestic use) .3 4 FINE STRONG CONGOU, PEKOE FLAVoUlt (This is an excellent Tea, and deservedly in repute) 3 8 FINE PEKOE SOUCHONG • 4 0 (We might here refrain from publishing a higher price, for positively a higher price is unnecessary but we keep the higher prices for Connoisseurs. ) SUPERIOR PEKOE SOUCHONG (from the Kongshing estate, rich aud rare) k. .4 4 T-IRSANG SOUCHONG v\ .5 0 (This is the acme of perfection in Tea, and bears comparison in repute to old Beeswing Port.) GREEN TEAS. s. d. GOOD USEFUL GREEN (this will mix with Black at 2s. 8cl) 3 0 FINE TWANICAY (this with the Black at 3s.) 3 4 YOUNG HYSON (a very good Tea, and with the 3s. 4d. Black, makes an excellent mixture) 3 8 1< INE YOUNG HYSON (a little on the Cowslip flavour) 4 0 GUNFOWDER TEA (very strongly recommended).4 4 SUPERIOR YOUNG HYSON (This is a most excellent Tea, and is really the most useful of all our Green Teas; it pos- sesses great strength and a fine aromatic flavour.).5 0 FINEST HYSON (This is a choice Tea, possessing all those rich and delicate qualities line Hysons arc celebrated for) .6 0 FINEST GUNPOWDER 7 0 (This is The Gunpowder, and is quite a treat; not many years since it was sold at 16s. per lb.) COFFEE. NVe wish to direct particular attention to Coffee, fropi the fact of our having, after great trouble and expense, succeeded in perfecting he machinery for roasting-, which has never before been discovered. Letters patent are already taken out for the invention, which Preserves the aroma, and removes that acidity, so frequently complained of by delicate persons. S. d. GOOD CEYLON COPFlm (Good sound Cotfcc) 0 10 FIXE CEYLON COFFEE (a very good Coffee) .1 0 J'IKE PLANTATION (recommended) 1 2 Å s. d. FINEST JAVA COFFEE (much and deservedly in request) .1 4 THE FINEST CUBA COFFEE (strongly recommended) I 6 FINEST MOCHA COFFEE 1 8 It will be naturally inferred from the above that it is a favourable time to lay in a stock, as prices never were so low, nor can a greater fall reasonably be anticipated until the excessive duty of 2s. 2Jel. is reduced. For example, we are now selling Good sound Congou at Ss per tb., which, after deducting the ciuty, leaves but 9:|d. to remunerate the merchants and pay all expenses of importation— a price by which the importers must be great losers. 1 J k Referring to the above list we venture to solicit a continuance of that support hitherto so liberally bestowed. Having now established one of the Largest Businesses in the kingdom, we refer with pride to the progressive increase durinf the last twenty years, proving that our System of Business, based on liberal principles of commercial enterprise, and holding out unprecedented advantages, is fully appreciated. ° All orders are expected to be accompanied by a remittance or Post Office order or if a reference in London be made, payment on Receipt and approval of the goods will be sufficient. Our Terms are Cash, and we seek remuneration only by maoruitude of business, vur motto is, Small profits awl quick returns." NOTE.—Teas are delivered carriage free to any part of England when the quantity ordered exceeds six pounds, but the carriage of voftce is not paid unless accompanied by Tea. 2, Bucklersbury, Cheapside MANSELL AN-D CO. Delivered Ca rriage Free to any Part of the Kingdom. =or GUTTA PERCHA TUBING beirg kX uuaffectcd by moisture, acids, ai kaiies, grease, &c., is useful for the con- veyance of Gas, Water, Oil, Chemicals, Liquid Manure, &c. It is peculiarly va- luable for Drain and Soil Pipes.—In case of any stoppage, an incision can be made in the tubing with a sharp knife, and readily closed again by means of a warm iron. Its strength is extraordi- nary the small half-inch diameter tn b- ing, having resisted a pressure of 2.50 lbs. on the square inch without bursting. GUTTA PERCHA is totally imper- b y ?T yfrf, Yr unf1er3°ing any material change; it is not so liable to inefrom1 P10?^' ?s a ,? rCUm 18 nf by the frcst of winter or die drought of summer, as metal or leather Ihe smaller sizes of me lubmg may be had in lengths of 100 feet, and the larger sizes of 50 feet each. ?erchft 4ubin& ,)em& so extraordinary a conductor of sound, is now being extensively used as speaking-tubes in mines, ^numctories, hotels, warehouses, & luis tubing may also be applied in Churches and Chapels, for the purpose of enablin- deaf 'ii i 18 V• ? scimon> <^C- l'or comcymg messages from one room to another, or from the mast-head to the deck of a vessel, it aitiabiC.

These buckets can be had of any ° sc»,a or and as cold water will never soften them, they seldom need any repair.

IT has long been matter of surprise that so much difference should exist in the clearness of Ale and Beer, where the same quality and quantity of Malt and Hops are used. The apparent excellence and superiority of some Ales over others has been ascribed to various causes some affirm that one Brewer, in order to makefinc clear Ale, employs deleterious drugs in the preparation of his liquor; while others more charitably ascribe the difference to the excellence or otherwise of the water used; neither of these inferences are c( rrect. GEOIiG J5 ALSOPP, of High Park House, near Sheffield, after thirty years' experience as a wholesale Bre.ver, having retired'from that business, has compiled in a ne,at and comprehensive form, most invaluable infractions for brewing Ale and Beer, and a plain and simple method (for publicans and others) of producing fine spark- ling Ale in a few hours, however thick or muddy it may previously have been, without adulteration or in any way infriagin<» the exis.-regila ions; ° To which is added an APPENDIX, with full and complete directions for making LEMONADE, SODA WATER, and GINGER BEEH, by which a single, without machinery or any outlay whatever, except purchasing the (glass) bottles, may make and bottle all or any of those hover, g ready for immediate use— six uoze..i m one hour—at u cost of -j .1. per dozen the whole ren- dercd so c^ear and intelligible as to make it impossible to be inisun- derstood. orwarded, post free, to anv address, on sending thirty 2?S^ijS*aiUpS t0 Gi30BGB AlSOi'P, Office, No. ii, Westbar Green, Saefiui.1.
