" PRINTERS' REGISTER."
. This very valuable and interesting paper, especially
so to all persons in anywise concerned in the prir.ting
business-formerly known as the "Monthly Rainbow,"
is now before us, abounding in entertaining and in
structive matter. The present number, containing
the. Oration delivered by the Hon. R. C. Winthrop, at
the inauguration of the Franklin Statue, at Boston, is
worth thribble the subscription price. It is certainly
one of the cheapest .papers in the country, and there
are but few journals better conducted. We will be
glad to forward.the names of any desirous of subscri

will, in no instance, fail to send it regularly, as we in

Title play is to be given by our enterprising and
talented Thespians on Friday evening next, for which
occasion we beg to bespeak an overwhelming house.
To our view,. it is a beautiful play. That it is ex
tremely difficult in many of its passages, may not be
denied; yet we think the rendering of it as a whole
will serve to convince the audience of Friday evening
that we have histrionic talent amongst us eminently
worthy of encouragement atd applause. Let it be
remembered, however, that the most successful way
of bringing forward beginners (as nearly all of this
corpa are) is to look leniently upon their errors at
the outset and to chide their mis-conceptions in the
friendliesi possible spirit.-Do not understand us now
as excusing the Company in advance of the next rep
resentation. No, no. We have confidence that eve
ry player will do credit to his cast in " The Stranger,"
and that the entire evening's entertainment will satis
fy the just expectations of rn intelligent public.

a delightful contrast to the stateliness of the d rama.

dgefield District and Vcinity,
WOULD CALL YOUR ATTENTION TO MY
new prespration, known as " BLISS'- .YSPEP
IC REMEDY." This medicine is a'new medical
impound, and-isthe result of long practice, egten
re observation, and close study of all diseases having
eir origin in a disordered state of the stomach, and
lapted to every stage of these diseases, from their in
pient symptoms to those in which they have assumed
Chronic form; and although but ye'in its infancy,
is gained a notoriety and reputation very seldostat
irad by any " patent" pri atlou. This Remqdy
no quack nostrum, got up to gull the people, and
re them out of their money, but a.medicine which,
gether with the treatment prescribed to aucompany
e taking of the medicine, has the sanction of years
successful application in private practice, and wlo
Itfail to cure the most stubborn case of Dyspepsia,
matter of how long standing, or how savere it may
',providing the directions are closely followed out.
was not suddenly hit upon, nor dreamed of, but is
e accretion of facts and experiments collected In tb
ily rounds of duty as a practising Physician, and is
ven to the public in popular form, in the hope, as In
e belief, that it will not fail in giving relief to the
flerer from Dvspepsia, and all other diseases having
eir origin in the stomach, in any instance when the
rections are properly attended to. It has received
* highest encomiums from the first phyalcani
roughout the North arid South-it has Len tried,
commended and certified to by some eminent jurists
id statesmen in-the country, all of which. -hail ap
ar In due .time. Physicians of large practice are
)w using it and relying upon it alone in these disea
a in their practice, and recommend it to their friends
worthy their best confidence'.
It Is entirely dissimilar to any and every preparation
the kind now before the people. The originator,
tertaining-views and opinions somewhat at variance
ith the prescribed notions among medical men gene
ly, as regards the nature.of these diseases, has in
is preparation brought together *medical agents of
iown utility and worth, in the form of a new combi
rtion, making a compound altogether and entirely
iw, and one that will not fail in effcing a .cure, if
irections are followed and preservered in. The un
traigned is well aware that the same encouragement
as been given, and the same promises made, over and
ver again, by manufacturers of patent medicines, as
igards their different preparations, and as voucher
ir the curative qualities of this preparation, and for
ie purpose also of giving additional weight to what.
ver he may say as regards this new preparation, he
otld beg to refer to the fact that he is the originator;
anufiseturer and proprietor of the well known " Ja.
ib's Cordial," the curative properties of which in
holera, Dysentary and Diarrhoa, are now being pro.
aimed by thousands i'i every section of the country,
s heing all that he ever said of it.
The undersigned does not profess to be aphilanthro
st, or that he is uninfluenced by ennsiderations of
ecuniary profit in placing the Remedy before the peo
le, hut he does know that -while he may be realizing
pecuniary profit, fellow-sufferers vill realize that
Phich is of more worth to them than all the wealth of

le disease; it more readily than any other, in various
f its forms and to a greater extent, finds its victims
the wealthy and aristncratib circles, especially in
Lrge cities, and its insidious workings are often the
al, though undiscovered cause of the sallow cheek,
e doll, heavy eye and general inertia-indisposition
) either mental or physical efiort, which are errone
usly attributed to other causes.
Scenes of luxurious ease are not, howevir, alone
e haunts of this destroyer of the health and enjoy
tent of myriads of mankind. Other conditions of
ife there are in which it revels over faded and ema
iated furms, and -dispirited and despairing hearts.
he sedentary labors of the counting house and - the
tudy, not less that tae intense excitement and irregni
trities of busier occupations of mercantile life, are
romotive of it; each daily adding to the number of
is nbjects. But our (that is, the physician's and his
alients,) object is not, having once discovered the
isease, so much to trace it back to its source, as to
emove it from where we find it, and to establish a
ialthful and vigorous action of the various organs,
:y use of the proper agencies, and to restore to their
tatural functions these organs which had been perver
ed by disease.
Lest I may be regarded in the same light as other
iroprietors of " patents," who recommend their prepa
ations as " sovereign balms" for any and every dis
ase flesh is heir to, I wish to point you to the fact
hat I shall recommend its trial only in diseases of the
5tomach and Digestive Organs, and those other dis
ases which in my opinion have their rise and origin
in those organs. And I wish also to poitit you to the
act that in the short medical essays that I shall give
fou from week to week, instead of assertintg meicly
that " Bliss' Dyspeptic Remedy" will cure such andi
uch diseases, and obliging you to depend on my ise
ixit for the truth of that assertion, as a great mnajort-~
ty of those who have gone before me have done, ad
are doing every day through the columns of newvsp
pers, instead, I say, of doing this, I shall taks no little
pains, and go to no very small expense In purchasping
giving yout,at thbe same time, the cause, true indications
treatment, cure, &c., &c., and also my reasons for ree
ommeniding this trial of the Remedy in euch disease
treated upon. I not only shall say to you that ir will
eire such and suech diseases ; but shall at the same
time tell you u'hg anti howo it will effect a cure. I
sall do this that I may give you my viens as regards
the nature andi treatment of the different diseases
which differ in some respects from those of the medi
:al profession generally.
That my labors have not been in vain I have the
most ample proofs in the fact that the Remedy has
been and is nowv being tested by hundreds and thou
rands throughout ihie country, andl motre than this, I
have received the most flattering letters not only from
those ant of the professiotn, but those in it, some of
whom are the first physicians in their section of the
:outrv; anid I mutit confess that so many candid
vuwale of its true remedial worth from physicians,
10t only produces no small degree of sati-faction in
y mind, but it aloes, I rmust confess, surprise me,
Iowing as I do that medical nien generally, Instead
af receiving. exainring, and trying a new remnedy are
very apt to rise up simultaneously and systemsiicaltly
n bimiiling hostility against arty thing of the kind.
lhat it isan sovereign remedy ror the diseases that I
hall bring b~efore your notice, I do know, for I have
ested the preparation for years in moy private practice,
nd know how far and in what diseases it maiy he re
iedi upon. I do know that it may be relied upon and
vith the greatest cnonidence in
oI matter of how long standing, or however stub.
iorn a case it may have been. If the directions are
:losely followed and persevered in. it will not fail to
:tnre. So also in
ven of years' standting, anti haviung re-si-ted every
tind of treatment, I dto know that it wtli,' if iak'rn ini
tood foilt, remoave'every vestiga of the dhsease, for as
[-hall show, when. I come to dtescribe that disease,
t is 'a diseasej of the digestive organs alone, in
itead of hieing,' as many suppose, a disease of the low
:r buwels. In '
lsa, I most unhesitatingly recommend it, for, as I
halt show, thters is no such disease .as " general de
iitiy," bait that the'state of system looked upon as
'd bility,"~ is only symptomatic of disease of the di
~estve organs. -And so, also. in
WASTING IN FLESH,
shall describe its action itn bringing aboutt a cure itt
his disease, or.rather symptons. of a disease, viz: a
,ncested and irritated state of the digestive organs.
rl'his cronditio~n of system andt its causeis have been ye
*y mucha overlooked by the Profession generally, and
a regatrded by a great many in the same light as it is
y iho'se out of the proftession, viz : that it is natural
o s'mme mo be poor in flesh, attenuated and bony ; but
greater mistake never existed, for setwh a condition
f system, whether hereditary, or brought about by
atura4 causes, is the result of diseased action of the
ligestive organs, and can be easily removed and the
hole person to, assume a full, plump, round, and
cathy appenrance. In
klu, I shall dlescribe its curative virtues, anti shall
how that instead uf that disease beitng like the acute
urin, a disease of the bowels, it is a disease of the
stoach,. antd that any arid every aase' may be not on
y relieved, baut permanenatly cured by persevering in
he taking of the Remedy. So, also,'In
PA LPIT ATION,
Whch I shall also in tdue time treat upon, it is a any
'reign remedy in the. functional or nervous form of the
liease, having ira rise end origin in dliseased- diges
ive organs. For stricttura organic tdisease of the
eart, there is no cure ; this is produced by the func
ional or nervous form of the disease, and this latter
y disease of the stomach. In the so-called
A very vaguo and unmeaning term, howvever,) it
hows its remedial virtues to a parnmanent degree. So,
Lnd in many other chronic diseases, all having their
rigin in disease of the digestive organs, (all of which
shall sooner or later treat upon,) the " Remedy" is,
f all others, the one in iw hicha the most implicit con
idence and reliance may be p laced, providing it is ta
:en regularly, and persevered in, and all thes accom
anying directions carried our so far as circumstances
In using this Remedy, its beneficial effects may bd
ooked for at once. Jr will begin to relieve, and the
atent will know that recovery has commenced withitn
8.or 72 hours ; or, at farthest, by the time lhe has ta
ten the contents of oats package.- To those trying the
fet of this Remeidy, I wotuld propose a fest that will
lemonstrate to the patient that he is being benefited.
If it is used In a case of Dyspepsia, where pain or'
thr distressing feelings attond the taking of food up.
n the stonjach, I suggest that the patient, afiter uising
he Remedy for' threo or four days, and following
lsty thre other directions, partake of some -articles
f fodwhich he hadl known previously t6 disagree
ith him, and he will discover that it no longer pro
lces the disagreeable effect. Sufferers from Dy's
tepsia, nervous sufferers, inv'alids from disease of the
iver, and froni broken, worin out and debilitated con
itituions, tr one package ; follow out closely all the
secopanying directions, and prove the truth or faisi
y.of what I bays said of the Remedy I would,
bowever, remark, thtat unlers. you determine to take
le medicine and follow out all directions as given, I
