22 BEAVER STREET. NEW YOUR, NOV. 3, 'C8.
l\> the People of the Southern Stuten.
When the pure medicinal restorative, now so
widdy known as Wolfe's SCHIEDAM SCHNAPPS,
was Introduced into the world, uudor tho endorse?
ment of 1,000 leading members of the medical pro?
fession, some twenty years ago, its proprietor was
well awaro that it could not wholly escape the
penalty attached to now and useful preparations.
He, therefore, endeavored to invest it with the
strongest possible safeguard against counterfeit?
ers, and to render all attempts to jarate it difficult
and dangerous. Ii was submitted to distinguish?
ed chemists for analysin, and pronounced by them
the purest spirit over manufactured. Its purity
and properties having been thus ascertained,
samples of tho article wore forwarded to 10,000
phyacians, including all the leading practitioners
Hi the United States, for purposes of experiment.
A circular, requesting a trial of tho preparation
and a report of the result, accompanied each
specimen. 4,000 of tho most eminent medical mon
in tho Union promptly responded. Their opinions
of tho article wero unanimously favorable. Such a
preparation, they said, had long been wanted by
tho profession, as no rebaneo could be placed ott
tho ordinary liquors of commerco; all of which
were more or less adulterated, and, therefore,
unfit for medical purposes. Tho peculiar excel?
lence and strength of tho oil of juniper, which
formed one of the principal ingredients of tho
Schnapps, together with an unalloyed character
of thc alcoholic clement, give it, in the estimation
of tho faculty, a marked superiority over every
other diffusive stimulant as a diuretic, tonic and
These satisfactory credentials from professional
mon of tho highest rank wero published in a
condensed form, and euolosed with each bottle
ol tho Schnapps, as ono of the guarantees of its
genuineness. Other precautions against fraud
wero also adopted; a patent was obtained for tho
article, tho label was copyrighted, a ./Vic sii/ii/i; of
the proprietor's autograph signaturo was attached
to each labol and cover, his namo and that of tho
preparation wero embossed on tho bottles, and tho
corks were sealed with his private soal. No articlo
had ovor been sold in this country-under tho namo
of Schnapps prior to tho introduction of Wolfe's
Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps, in 18f>l; and the
label was deposited, as his trade mark, in tho
United States District Court for tho Southern Dis?
trict of New York during that year.
It might bo supposed, ny persons unacquainted
with tho daring character of the pirates who prey
upon tho reputation of honorable merchants, by
vending deleterious trash under their namo, that
tho protections so carefully thrown around those
Schnapps would have precluded ibo introductions
and salo of counterfeits. Thoy seem, however,
only to have stimulated the rapacity of impostors.
Tho trade mark of tho proprietor has been stolen:
tho endorsement which Ids Schiedam Aromatic
Schnapps alone received from tho medical pro?
fession bas bean claimed by mendacious humbugs;
bia labels an bottles havo boon imitated, his ad?
vertisements paraphrased, his . iroulara copiod,
aud, worso than all, dishonorable rotailers, aftor
disposing of tho genuine contonts of his bottles,
have tilled them up with common gin, tho most
deleterious of all liquors, and thus made his name
and brand a cover for poison.
Thc public, the medical profession and the sick,
for whom tho Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps ia
prescribed as a romedy, aro equally interested with
tho proprietor in the detection and suppression ot
theso nefarious practices. The gonuino artiolo,
manufactured at tho establishment of tho under?
signed, in Schiedam, Holland, is distilled from a
barley of tho flnost quality, and flavored with an
essontial extract of tho berry of tho Italian
Junipor, of unequalled purity. Hy a process un?
known in tho preparation of any other liquor, it is
I freed from every acrimonious and corrosive ele
Complaints have been received from the leading
physicians and families in the Southern StatcB,
of the sale of cheap imitations of the Schiedam
Aromatic Schnapps in those markets; and travel?
ers, who are in the habit of using it an an antidoto
to the baneful influence of unwholesome river
water, testify that cheap gin, put np in Sohiedam
bottles, is frequently palmed off upon tho unwary.
Thelagonts of tho undersign nd have been requested
to instituto inquiries on the subject, and to for?
ward to him tbo names of such parties as they
may ascertain to bo engaged in tho atrocious
system of deception. In conclusion, thc under?
signed would say that bebas produced, from under
tho hands of the most distinguished men of
scienco in America, proof?* unanswerable of the
purity and medicinal excellence of the Schiedam
Aromatic Schnapps; that be bas expended many
thousand dollars in surrounding it witta guarantee's
and safeguards, which he designed should protect
tho public and himself against fraudulent imita?
tions; that he has shown it to be the only liquor in
tho world that can be uniformly depended upon
as unadulterated; t 1?Ht tao ha? challenged investi?
gation, analysis, comparison, and experiment in
all its forms: and from Tvory ordeal tho prepa?
ration which bears his name, ?eal and trade mark,
lias como off triumphant. Ho, therefore, feels it a
duty he owes to Iiis folluw-citizens generally, to
tho* medical profession and tho sick, to denounce
and exposo ttio Charlatans who counterfeit theso
evidences of idoutity, and be calls upon tho press
and tho public to aid bira in bis efforts to remedy
so great an ovil.
Tho following letters and certificates, from the
leading physicians and chemists of this city, will
prove to thu reader that all goods sold by tho
undersigned arc all they aro represented to bo.
I reid hound to say, that I regard your Schnapps
as being, in every respect, pre-eminently pure,
and deserving of medical patronage. At all evcnts,
it is tho purest possible article of Holland Oin,
heretofore unobtainable; and, as such, may bc
safelv prescribed bv physicians.

DEAR Sin: I have made a chemical examination
of a samplo of your Schiedam Schnapps, with
tho intent of determining if any foreign or injurious
substance had been added to th? simple distilled
DEAR Sir.: Thu want of pure Wines and Liquors,
for medicinal purposes, has beeu long felt by thc
profession, and thousands of lives have loon sac?
rificed by tho use of adulterated articles. Delirium
tremens, and other diseases of the brain and
nerves, so rife in this country, are very raro in
Europe; owiug, in a great degree, to the difference
in the purity of tho spirits bold.
We havo tested tho several articles imported
and ?old by you, including your Gin, which you
sell under tho name of ?romatio Schiedam
Schnapps, which wo consider justly entitled to the
high reputation it has acquired in this country;
and, from your long expenenco as a foreign im?
porter, your Bottled Wines and Liquors should
meet with tho samo demand.
Wc would recommend you to appoint some of
the respeetablo apothecaries in different parts of
the city as agents for tho salo of your Brandies
and Winos, where tho profession can obtain tho
same when needed for medicinal purposes.
Wishing you success in your new enterprise, we
remain vour obedient servants.

THE HONEST PARSON.-A friend of mine
says a writer in Chambers' Journal, who is i

Vicar of Wakefield iu his ways, came up t(
town last week, and reaped thc disadvan

where or another he got a bad half-crowi
palmed off upon him. This annoyed bin
exceedingly, but most of all because lu
feared it might somehow get into circulo
tiou, and perhaps reach hands that couh
less afford to receive it than his own. H
would have thrown it into tho gutter bu
for this consideration, and was ponderiuj
how ho should get rid of it, when it sud
denly struck him that he was late fordinue
with your humblo servant, and therefor
took a Hansom with nil speed. So nervou
was he at tho idea of keeping my othe
guests waiting, that when the cabman said
"Eighteen pence, sir," he gave him thc ba
half-crown, (which happened to be his onl;
piece of silver.) in chango for a shilling
and tho poor fellow drove away. Howevei
before he was out of sight, my bene'voleu
clergyman remembered what he had dont
and lied down tho street after thej vehicle
shouting: "Cabby! Cabby!" wildly, an
waving his alpaca umbrella. The cabman
however, though ho turned round, onl
nodded good-naturedly, and drove ?wai
leaving my poor friend inconsolable at th
idea of thus having robbed an honest mai
He told us the story at dinner, and most c
