BALM OF COLUMBIA.
An Important Recent Chemical Discovery.
THE HUMAN HAIR.
WHERE tbe bair is observed to be growing tbin,
nothing can be more preposterous than the use
of oils grease, or any fatty matter. Their application can
only be recommended through the grosest ignorance, a
tbey hasten the fall of the hair, by increasing the re.
lsxatioo of the skin. When there ia a harsh, dry, or
contracted akin, and where the smsll blood vessels
which carry nourishment to the bulb are obstructed,
then the oil. A e.. mav be food, at they tend to relax
thetkin; but alone, they are of no avail. There must
be a stimulus, to rouse the vessels from their torpor,
and quicken the current of the blood, Extract from
Cltrehugh Treatise on the hair.
The Balm of Columbia ia the only preparation that
can have that effect, being entirely free from any oily
substance. Ita positive qualities are as follows:
1st For infants, keeping the head free from tcurf,
and causing a luxurient growth of hair.
2d For ladiet after a child birth, restoring the skin
to its natural strength and firmness and preventing tbe
falling out of tbe bair.
3d For any person recovering from any debility the
same effect is produced.
4th If used in infsncy till a good growth is started,
it may be preserved by attention to the latest period
5lh It frees the heard from dandruff, strengthens
the roots, imparts health and vigour to the circulation
and prevents the hair from changing colour or getting
6th It causesthe hair to curl beautifully when done
up in it over night.
ITT No Indies' toilet should ever be made without it.
7th Children who have by anr meant contracted
vermin in the head, are immediately and perfectly cured
of them by ita use. It it infallible.

entirely ber phrenological developments, which, consid
ering that they betokened a most amiable disposition, was
not in reality very unfortunate. ieverlheless she
mourned the joss of locks that she had worn, and, af
ter a year's fruitless resort to miscalled restoratives,
purchased' some months ago, a bottle or two of Oldridge's
Balm, and she has now ringlets in rich profusion, glossy,
and of raven blackness. We are not puffing none of

Among the many advertised medicines of the day,
there it none more justly colebrated than UofaCa Lift
Pill and Phoenix Hitters. Whenever introduced, they
have given entire tatisfactian, and their virtues only
want to be more extensively known to render them a
universally approved medicine. We are not ia the habit
of puffing io contribute to the venality of quacks for a
douceur, and have no faith in their cure-all. nostrums.
But Mr. Moffat's Medicine are a different article ; bis
Pill are a good cathartic, and tbe Bitter an excellent
tonic. We know them In be so from experience, having
used them ourselves in our family, and so confident are
we of their efficacy, that, although we have ao authori
ty to do so, we will warrant their giving satisfaction in
all complaint for which they are recommended.

tbe system, create a good appetite, and thereby remove
the languor and feebleness, which oppresses almost eve.
ry person dorirg the hot season. Those who are af

At the solicitation of an old friend, w publish, with
pleasure, in thit day, paper, a letter from Mr. O. L.
Smith, of the firm of Smith, Riddle A. Co. of this city,
to Mr. Moffat, of the city of New York, proprietor of
the " Life Pills and Phoenix Bitters Ia this letter,
Mr. Smith give an account of hi sufferings from a se
vere attack of chronic rheumatism, nnder which be la
bored for more than three year, and of hit speedy car
by the use of tha aforesaid medicines. A certificate,
coming from to respectable a source, cannot fail to have
it weight in this community If ibis madicin it found
by experience to effect so immediate a ear of a com
plaint so painful and distressing, it would b highly vain,
able to person tngtged in navigating tteamboat en
our western rivers. From their constant exposure to
the inclemency of tbe weather, and from the rapidity of
their transition from a cold to a warm climate, aad from
a warm to a cold one, they are peculiarly liable to rbosj
nistic attacks. To tbem this medicine may prove an in
valuable remedy: one which they can always keep en
band for nse at occaaion may require.
It is said thst a tingl dose of three pills, or tw do
ses at most, will relieve a common cold. The proprie
tor of the medicine, through a friend, was so kind, a few
weak ago, a to tend us a bottle of the bitten, and a
box of the pills; and when afflicted with a severe cel'
we have derived apparently great benefit from their nr.
W do not believe that any medicine ever ha been or
ever will he discovered, which, in serioua complaints
will supercede the necessity of the physician service,
yet we have strong reason to hope that the medicine of
which we have been (peaking, will prove of great utili
ty to the community.

A Wood to Paaxirrs. All ths mortality yonwitnese
among children and youth arise from a neglect of small,
complaints. Children will often avoid complaint in or.
der to avoid taking medicine. It behoove parents,
therefore, to watch them elosely, as they value their
health, their eery existence. This faithfully done, tbey
would never have any serious illn. Aad what ia
the great hardship and inconvenience, to guerd on'
self and one'e children from disease, when we thereby
secure our constant bappines A small do of the V.
getable Life Medicine, administered occasionally, it all
that i requisite; and to this end, not an individual
among parenta ahoold pas a aingle night without at
least a 25 cent box of tbe Life Pills in the heos. Tha)
mode, strictly followed, will keep whole familiea in per.
feet health: and they will consequently take lea of thie
one medicine in a year, than ia sometime required ia a .
ingle week of serious illness, at the band of n PT"-'
cian. Parents! by attending to this wholesome advice, .
you will render your children really hardy, sprightly, p
and intelligent, and at the same time improve their look. .
