T E Å SAT WHOLESALE PRICES, carriage free, No. 2, BUCKLERSBURY, CHEAPSIDE. r HE heading of our Circular sufficiently indicates the basis of our system, viz.—that of supplying the Public with Teas and Coffees at JVlwlesale Ready 11Ioney.. appealsome what presuming; and the question may naturally arise-How one party can sell at Wholesale Pnia onnthpr rpnuires a Retail Profit ? The answer is simply this Our arrangements are identical with those of the largest and framed on the most Economical Scale. Our Warehouse, situate in a bye thoroughfare, is one of the rrwif 0 •, T nnflra, 'v.iA affords the Greatest Facilities for the most Extensive Transactions, and is entirely unencumbered with thn=!« if*10.115 ^voenses inseparable from the show of a Retail Shop, and for which indirectly the purchaser is taxed. Our business, the branches, extending throughout the United Kingdom, is of such magnitude, that our purchases are necessarily large, and we tlius"derive every advantage the market affords." It will, therefore, be seen that we are in a position to supply the pubile on the best and most economical -in fact, to supply at first hand by which all intermediate profits are saved. In quoting a partial selection of our prices, 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 tile too frequent Practice of late particularly in the Tea Trade—of gulling the public with false alluring titles—and while some are 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 Ha's, 4s. t)a 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 Tea. TTIP followinff List is composed from the Latest and most Favourable Quotations in the Market. Q BLACK TEAS. s. d. Go an OKDINAUY CONGOU ( a very fair common Tea) 2 8 ^OOI) USEFUL CONGOU (a useful Tea, decidedly cheap) 3 0 Strong CONGOU TEA (a very good lea for domestic use) .3 4.

COFFEE. We wish to direct particular attention to Coffee, from the feet 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. 8 d.

For example, we arc now selling Good sound ,C'ungolt at 38. per lb., which, after deducting the duty, leaves but 9|d. to remunerate the merchants and pay all expenses of importation— a price by which the importers must be great losers. 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 during ■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.. T, ruK n o All orders are expected to bo accompanied by a remittance or Post Office order or it 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 magnitude of business. ^ur motto is, Small profits and quick returns." NOTE. Teas are delivered carriage free to any part of England when the quantity ordeied exceeus six pounds, but tne carriage of Coffee is not paid unles3 accompanied by Tea.

It is peculiarly va- riable for Drain and Soil Pipes.-Ill 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 tub- ing, having resisted a pressure of 280 lbs. on the square inch without bursting. GtTTTA PERCHA is totally imper- vious to wet, and may be steeped in water, r buried in damp or marshy ground for years witnout undergoing any material change; it is not so liable to incrustation, and from its opeculiar property as a non-conductor, is not affected so soon by the frost of winter or the drought of summer, as metal or leather. The smaller sizes of the Tubing may be had in lengths of 100 feet, and the larger sizes of 00 feet each. Gutta Percha Tubinw being so extraordinary a conductor of sound, is now being extensively used as speaking-tubes in mines, Manufactories, hotels, warehouses, &c. This tubing may also be applied in Churches and Chapels, for the purpose of enabling deaf persons to listen to the sermon, &c. For conveying messages from one room to another, or from the mast-head to the deck of a vessel, it is invaluable. It is also an excellent medium for ventilating mines. MILL BANDS.—The increasing demand for the Gutta Percha strapping for driving bauds, iathe-straps, &c., fully justifies the *trong recommendations they have everywhere received. GUTTA PELICHA PUMP BUCKETS, CLACKS, &C,Plow applications of Gutta Pereha appear likely to be ofsneli extensive "le to manufacturers, engineers, &c., as the substitution of it for leather in pump buckets, valves, &e.

S T R E E T, NEWPORT. MARY JONES, Widow of the late Mr. S. JONES, Cabinet-Maker, &c., Hill-street, in retiring from the business carried on by LV her late husband, for thirty years, and by herself during the past three years, begs to return the public her most grateful acknow- ledgments for the patronage bestowed on the business, during these terms; and to announce that she has now retired in favour ot livr Son and Mr. Taylor, from Cheltenham, for whom she solicits a continuance of the kind patronage of the public. JONES AND TAYLOR, In succeeding to the above business, assure those who may favour them with their orders, that no exertion will be spared in truir execution, in the most modern styles, with the very best workmanship, in the most prompt manner, and at the lowest remunerate, e prices. The present stock in the ware-rooms and show-rooms consists of an extensive assortment of sideboards, cheffioneers, extensible and other dining tables, loo and card ditto, in rosewood and mahogany, sofas, couches, lounge, and other chairs, in rosewood, mahogany, and other, woods, bedsteads, wardrobes, chests of drawers, dressing and chimney glasses, dressing and wash tables, &c., &c., and every variety of furniture fit for the mansion or the cottage.

GREAT BRITAIN STORES, NEAR THE POST-OFFICE, CARDIFF. L. WALTER, TAILOR, WOOLLEN DRAPER, HATTER, AND GENERAL OUTFITTER, RETURNS his sincere and unfeigned acknowledgments to his numerous Patrons and Friends, for their valuable custom, and the extreme liberality evinced by them m the recommendation of their Friends; and begs to assure them that no exertion will be spared on his part, as far as capital, industry, human exertion, and practical experience, may enable him to ensure a continuance ol their Patronage. The success that has marked his progress in the bespoke department, proves that such an Establishment was wanted in Cardiff; and it is scarcely necessary that he should remind the Public that the great governing principle upon which his Business is conducted, is that of furnishing, at its original Wholesale Price, and for the lowest remunerating profit, the most necessary article that enters into the expenditure of every family, and every individual in the Kingdom; therefore, it is as much the interest of the Public as the Proprietor to recognise and encourage the justness and fairness of this system of Business. Having completed a New and Fashionable Stock of Clothing for the ensuing Season, comprising such an assortment as, for beauty of material, excellence of style, and lowness of price, by far exceeds any ever before offered to the public of Cardiff, L. W. solicits an early inspection, confident that the result must be the general approbation and support of all persons who rightly appreciate the advan- tages of Fashionable Dress. The Proprietor of this Establishment, while he courts the custom of the wealthy, and renders it worthy their patronage by furnish- ing the very best material, and making up the same in the,first style of the art, places the most elegant articles within the reach of all to whom economy is an object, with the additional advantage {not to be obtained elsewhere) of returning any article ordered which, decs not meet with their approbation either as regards Cut, duality, Colour, or Make, though previously seen, chosen, and approved. In nothing is public opinion so unsettled as in Dress and the Proprietor trusts, that bv thus liberally meeting the difficulty of public taste and choice to the extreme, to merit and increase the extensive Trade, Patronage. autl Confidence with which he has hitherto been honoured. 2,000 Summer Coats from 3s. 6d.

Important to Brewers, Publicans, and Beer Eetailc-rsi. IT has loiia been matter or surprise that so much difFerer.f* g_ 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 make fine clear Ale, employs deleterious drugs in the preparation of his liquor; while other-! more charitably ascribe the difference to" the excellence or otherwise of the water used; neither of thc-v inferences are correct. GEORGE ALSOPP, of High Park House, near Sheffield, affcr thirty years' experience as a wholesale Brewer, having retircl that business, has compiled in a neat and comprehensive form, H.\ŒII- invaluable instructions for brewing Ale and Beer, and a plain and simple method (for publicans and others) of proouci-ilg fine spark- ling Ale in a few hours, however thick or muddy it may previously have been, without adulteration or in any way infringing tfjw excise regulations T° which is added an APPENDIX, with full and complete directions for making LEMON A DR, SODA WATKR, and GISOBR BEER, by which a single individual, without machinery 0: any outlay whatever, except purchasing the (glass) bottles, may ma&e and bottle <vll or any of those beverages ready for immediate use- ily six dozen in one hour-at a cost of 41d. per dozen the whole ren- dered so clear and intelligible as to make it impossible to be misun- derstood.
