of tho Baptiat denomination. We have
been moved ro this undertaking by the j 1
solicitations of brethren in varient por- ? 1

the general welfare of the churches. Thc

sincere and zealous laborers.
The Baptist will be printed on a sheet
about twenty-two by thirty-two inches, and
will contain twenty-four broad columns,
mostly in Long Primer type, clear and
legible, so that it may be read with com?
fort, even by the aged. Its entire mecha?

Our columns will be enriched by corres- I

other Southern States, and, occasionally,
from Europe, and our missionary stations |
abroad. The entertainment and instruc?

The Great American Blood Purifier.
THE QUEEN'S BUT!
rrUTE QUFEN'S DELIGHT, thc great |
X American Alterative and Blood Turi-I
tier, is the most perfect vegetable com?
pound of alteratives, tonics, diuretics and j
diaphoretics; making it thc most c ft'eetive |
invigorating, rejuvenating an I blood- i
cleansing cordial known to the world.
In introducing this new and extraordi?
nary medicine tn tho public, observation
leads us to remark that too little attention j
is paid to the "life ol' all flesh," the blood, j
Hauy diseas, s, and. to... many complaints,
which have their origin in a vitiated state |
of the blood, are treated only as symptoms ?
and results; whereas, if the remedy had
been applied to enrich thc blood and ren?
der it pure, both cause and effect would
have been removed. Thc Queen's Delight !
is ottered to th?' afflicted as a sure remedy j
for those disease., arising from an impure i
condition of the blood, lt has a direct j
and specific action upon that fluid, and
consequently renders the blood pure, lt
is said, on high authority, that "man no
sooner begins to live than he begins to
die, and that the characteristics of thc
living organism are ceaseless change and i
ceaseless waste." lt is obvious, therefore,
to every reflecting mind, that unless the
blood is pure, in supplying tho waste tis- I
sues with material, it must bo the cause of
innumerable ills and eonstitmion.il disor?
ders, such as Scrofula, Rheumatism, He?
patic Disorders. Consumption, Inflamma?
tions, F'evers, ?tc bit'.; and health is only
to bc maintained by thc circulation of pure ?
Wc therefore advise every ons' v.hos.
