WITHOUT A GOOD DKiESTIO.V.-All other
temporal blessings aro comparatively worthless.
Tho dyspeptic millionaire, who has tried all tho
potions of tho modical profession in vaiu, and
believealiis complaint to be incurable, wonld give
half his fortune to bo freed from the horrors of
indigestion, and thus enabled to enjoy the other
half. Of course he would.
Perhaps HOSTETTER'8 STOMACH BITTERS
bas been recommended to such a sufferer. PoBki
bly bo has turned from tho friend who made tho
suggestion with a sneer, intimating that ho has
no faith in any '?patent medicine." If this baa
been tho case, so much thc icorse for him. His
incredulity dooms him to a lifo of misery. All the
luxuries which wealth can purchase aro at his
command. Not ono of them can give him plea?
sure. His own irrational obstinacy is bis bane.
Tho masses, happily for themselves, aro loss
skeptical. Thero is such a thing as bigoted unbe?
lief', as woll as bigoted credulity, and; a golden
moan between tho two, which men and women
who are gifted with common sense adopt and
profit by. ThcBO are the class that patronize and
recommend HosTETTEn's BITTERS. Why do they
approve this famous anti-dyspeptic and anti?
phons preparation? Simply because they have
not boen too much tho slaves of sonseleea preju?
dice to give it a fair trial, and have found that
when all other tonics, stimulants and stomachics
failed, it produced tho desired effect.
"Strike, but hear," said the Roman sage, when
his ignorant enemies were assailing him. "Doubt,
but try," says tho man who has boon cured of in
digostion, or biliousness, or intermittent fever, by
tho Bitters, as bo relates his experience of the
medicine to his invalid friends. Whoever is so
wedded to his own foregone theoretical conclu?
sions, as to declino to test tho properties of a
medicino endorsed by the testimony of intelligent
men in every walk of lifo, and approved by the
people at large, deserves to stiffer,

To Consumptives...-Thc advertiser, having
been restored to health in a few weeks, by a very
simple remedy-after having suffered several years
with a severe lung affection, and that dread dis?
ease, Consumption- is anxious to make known to
his fellow-sufferers thc means of cure.
To all who desiro it, ho will send a copy of thc
prescription used, (froo of charge,) with tho di?
rections for proparing and using tho same, which
they will find a S VUE CUBE Fon CONS?MITION,
ASTHMA, BRONCHITIS, etc. Tho object of the ad?
vertiser in sending thc prescription, is lo benefit
tho afflicted, and spread information which lu
conceives to bo invaluable; and he hopes over]
sufferer will try his remedy, as ft will cost then
nothing, and may prora a blessing.
Partid wishing the prescription, will please ad
drees BEV. EDWARD A. WILSON,

A Gard from Mr. Geo. H. Graber.
TO MY FRIENDS: It is with extreme regret
that I announce to ray friends and patroon
that circumstances bevond ray control cosopalled
mo to discontinuo my business at tho old stand ot
N. M. PORTER & CO., No. 23G King street. In
making this announcement, I beg to tender my
sincere thanks for thoir liberal patronage and
support, and trust that in my new position they
will extend the same liberality. My limited capi?
tal, together with losses of tho past three yeaT,
impaired my credit to such an extent that it was
difficult to. keep up a supply of goods without
paying exorbitant prices, and I was fast lobing my
health, business and friends. In this extremity,!
appealed to Messrs. WM. 8. CORWIN i* CO., and
the liberality which so characterizes that firm wa?
at once extended to me, and I am now enabled to
offer hotter inducements. Their extensive capital
ami experience permits them to offer a Stier class
of goods at abont the prices I hadtopay, particu?
larly in Teas, Champagnes, Clarets. Brandies, Ac.
Tho combined efforts of myself ind former part?
ner, Mr. JA8. 8. MARTIN, will bo to please yon,
and wo respectfully solicit a continuance of your
patronago; and we pledge ourselves to give* our
personal and prompt attention to such. Again
thanking you for past favors and indulgences, I
remain your obedient servant, .
