*** The office of THE INTELLIGENCER AND JOURNAL, is now at 921 Arch Street, (2nd floor.) All correspondence, whether for the editors or on business, is requested to be addressed here; and in general persons having business with the paper will procure its transaction here.

For the accommodation of any who may find it more convenient to pay their subscriptions at the book-store of Friends' Book Association, arrangements have been made by which it will act as our agent to receive them. The store is now at the S. W. Cor. 15th and Race Sts., having been removed from 1020 Arch St.

ADVERTISING RATES. For transient advertisements, 10 cents per line, one time ; 772 cents per line each insertion, two times. For longer insertion reduced rates, which will be furnished on application.

REMITTANCES by mail should be in CHECKS, DRAFTS, or POST-OFFICE MONEY ORDERS; the last preferred. Money sent us by mail will be at the risk of the person so sending. Draw checks and money orders to the order of Helen G. Longstreth, Treasurer.

** Matter intended for insertion in the INTELLIGENCER AND JOURNAL should reach us by Third-day evening, though notices, or advertisements relating to affairs of immediate importance may be used as late as the forenoon of Fourth-day. In order to reach our distant subscribers, the paper is now mailed on Fifthday, and must be closed at noon of the day preceding.

Entered at the Post-Office at Philadelphia, Penna., as second

class-matter.

*** A watchful supervision is exercised over the advertisements in this paper, and none which are not entitled to credit will be knowingly admitted. Advertisements of a low or doubtful character are, of course, rigidly excluded. The value of our advertising space is by this oversight materially enhanced, as the appearance of an announcement in the paper is, to a certain extent, evidence of its trustworthiness.
