WESTMINSTER CENTRAL MART, SOUTHAMPTON-STREET, STRAND, London.

THE Plan upon which the WESTMINSTER CENTRAL Mart is conducted will, upon a very superficial examination, he admitted as the most successful means of promoting the purposes of the Establishment. The Proprietors of this concern undertake immediately, upon application at their Mart, to furnish the Nobility and Gentry with Servants of a superior class. Merchants, Tradesmen, Public Offices, and Academies may be also suited immediately with competent Assistants.

The Conductors of the WESTMINSTER CENTRAL Mart flatter themselves that the plan which they have adopted for the purposes of obtaining Servants, will be the means of removing those evils which must invariably attend the engagement of Servants who offer themselves in a private way; as by such engagements, Employers are subject to many disadvantages, and which can only be remedied by the advantageous plan which the WESTMINSTER CENTRAL MART affords.

This Establishment is open daily from Nine to Six o'Clock, and personal attendance given by the Proprietors themselves ; being persuaded that such attention is the ooly means of making the Establishment respectable and worthy of Public patronage.
