Ojr&MiMtT Feveb usually commence with
nauiea and sickness, great thirst, headacb, red
ness of the eyes, &e. In two or three days a
pricking sensation is experienced, and an erup
tion of a fiery redness begins to appear, first on
the face and arms, and finally a uniform redness
covers the whole body.
In cases of Scarlet Fever, Wright's Indian
Vegetable Fills should be taken every night on
going to bed, in such doses as to produce copious
evacuations by the bowels. This course, if prop
erty followed up, will in a short timo subdue
the most violent attack of Scarlet Fever, at the
same time the digestion will be improved, and
the blood completely purified.

Dr. Wright I have often wished to inform you
of the benefits derived from the use of your Indian
Vegetable rills, not tor the purpose ot gratifying
you, who are a stranger to me, but with the hope
that other fellow beings, who might be similarly
afflicted, may be induced to fly to the same resort.
In the fall of 18 11, 1 was persuaded to use your
Pills; before I had used one box I felt encouraged
to continue, and did continue, until I had used 12
boxes, having stopped at intervals and commenced
again. The result was, that in the Spring follow
ing, I left the sick bed and room to which I had
been entirely confined for eight years; during
which long period I had recourse tu the skill of
tho best physicians that could be obtained, and
who did all in their power; but all their eiloris
were in vain. Indeed, I never derived the least
My complaint was originally rheumatic, which
was afterwards aggravated by a cold. Tho two
combined became sealed in toy whole system. I
became helpless my legs and arms were of no use
to ine during that long time, in which I suffered
beyond my power to describe; and if I were to at
tempt description, it might appear to others an ex
aggeration. Nor will I attempt to tell you how
much money I paid the doctors.
I may mention that in those tour yeurs 1 did
not take more food than a healthy man would use in
four months. The eating of victuals had much
the effect the swallowing of a coal might have.
I will not be too lengthy, but conclude by saying
that old age is the only hindranco to performing
labor. My appetite has been ever sinci uninter
ruptedly good, and I enjoy the night restfully.

SOMETHING NEW. McNeil &. Co., taking
counsel from the times, arc ever intent cu
maKing ineir ousiness progressive, aim on im--
proving and beautifying their hats. They haver
this fall introduced a style of trimming at once
rich, novel, and of the most palpable utility. It
consists of a pocket in the comer of the hat, to
hold cigars, gloves, loose papers, or any light
articles usual to carry in tho hat, and that with
out touching the head. This porket is closed
with an elastic cord, and makes a rich and at
tractive finish to the hat. Being something new,
and so far peculiar to McNeil it Co., the public
are invited to call and examine it.

Jl Pills are now admitted, on all hands, to bw
the most extraordinary and valuable medicine in
general use. It not only acts as a specific upou
the Billious and Typhus Fevers, Chills and Fever,
and Fever and A guo of the west and south, but
in all diseases of debility, weak stomach, indi
gestion, loss of appetite, impurity of the blood,
and nil diseases prevalent in a western odd south
ern climate. TI.eir great power consists in their
peculiar effect upon all tne organs of the system,
and the rapid formation of m w and rich blood,
which they produce In this lies the great secret
of their success. They ore mild and pleasant in
their action, but searching and permanent in their
effect; penetrating the remotest recesses of the
system by their ready absorption into the blood,
thereby, infusing a new supply of vitality and
nervous power into all the machinery of lite. The
extensive popularity they have acquired all over
the west ond south ensures stiles of at leist
50,000 IIoxesjTer .tlonth,
And we find it difficult, with our large force of
hands and the late improvements in machinery
which we have adopted, to manufacture them fast
enough to supply the demand in thirteen western
and southern States! One large manufactory is
constantly engaged in preparing the various con
centrated extracts of which they are composed.
From the best information we can obtain from our
8,000 selling agents, and hots of attentive cor
respondents in all parts of the country, our medi
cine cures, per month, not less than
10,000 cases of Fever and Ague, one thousand of
which have resisted all other treatment;
4.500 cases of Billious Fever;
5,:)()0 do weakness and general debility;
2,500 do various Chronic diseases;
2,000 do weak stotrach and loss of appetite;

4(10 do Thyphus Fever;
!i(0 do Putrid Sore Throat.
This must app?ar almost inercdiblo, but the nu
merous letters from physicians, agents, and thus
who uscthe medicine, from all the western and
southern Slates, satisfy us that this is a moderate
estimate, and that oor medicine is rapidly taking

Vegetable Pills are of two kinds tho Cotlmrtic
and Tonic. The Tonic pills are peculiarly adapted
to the quick and permanent cure of Fever and
Ague, torpor of the Liver, and general debility.
It is in Fever and Ague, Chill Fever, i-c, that
they achieve their greatest triumphs. It rarely
requires over twelve hours, or mure than half a
bcx of the tonic pills, to bre;;!; the chi.ls at.d eff-ct

the tonic mixtures of quinine, hawked about tl-.o

the tonic pills once, will never forsake them.

send me another supply immediately, us there is

I have thoroughly tested your tonic pills in my
practice thro' this country, not only in chills and
fever, but in real Tvniotu elver, and have met
with such success from their use lhat I now find
myself at a great loss to get along without them.
I consider Ihem a great blessing to the people of

are important in the cure of more diseases than
yon recommend them for.
Don't fail to forward me a supply by mail, as
quickly as possible, directed as above.

NouitsF.'e Hats. A few days since we strolled
through the extensive hat and cap manufactory of
our friend Nourse, at No. 72 Main street, and
were surprised at the extensive arrangements for
manufacturing which Mr. N. has in operation.
We knew that the hats manufactured in tbe estab
lishment were cleg-nit in f-rm and finish, tut had
never before any idea of tho maker's method for
imparting to them so fine a polish and so fadeless
a jet. 1 here is a style, altogether, about the un-
ih of his hats which must make thein generally
popular. His assortment and stuck is unsurpassed
in this market, and country dealers should note
down hi locality they will profit by calling on
him. Editors Reveille.
