; patay, Atlanta Department.
To the People of South Carolina :
Tho above Company was organized in 18CG,
in cou3oquonco of the wholeaale forfeiture of
Southern polloica by Northern companies. The
unparalleled aoccesa of the enterprise has
forced several of these companies to reatoro
their Southern policies, from the fact that they
could not operate in our midst without the ap?
pearance of honesty.
We keep all our money at homo to build up
our impoverished oountry-every dollar of
premium being safely, invested in the State
from which it ia derived. Tho institution is
purely Southern, and boneo should appeal
with groat force to tho patriotism and sympa?
thy of every Southern heart.
'Tia not our purpose to make war on other |
companies, bot to exhibit tho special advan?
tages offered,by thia puroly Soiithorn Compa?
ny-founded on patriotism and solid wealth.
Its. ratio bf assets to liabilities-tho true test I
of a company's strength, ia second to none on
this continent-being nearly SOO to 100.
Whenever and wherever we have presented
the claims of this Company, it has not only
enlisted the sympathies of our people, but has
also secured their hearty co-operation. We
have secured 600 policies in Soxth Carolina
siuco the 10th of Pebroary. We number
among our Directors Gen. Wade Hampton and
Col. Wm. Johnston, gentlemen well known to
evory. citizen of Soul Jarolina. We appeal I
personally to the pt .e of Pou th Carolina to !
assist in 'poshing forward thia' deservedly
popular Southern institution.

The times aro pregnant with startling
events; old isms, t beor ios and fallacies
are fast disappearing beneath the gigan?
tic wheels of progress and haman de?
velopment. Chango is written with tho
iron finger of time upon all matter, seen
and unseen, material and spiritual. The
mighty, omnipotent power that fashion?
ed the stupendous orbs that revolve in
the immensity of space, created all
things in wisdom and purity. The ma?
jestic ocean, tho deep blue sea, the beau?
tiful earth and all things therein contain?
ed were planned and created by virtue of
that universal law of harmony, whoso
power holds sway over all. Intelligence
is manifested in all created things, both
great and small-tho tiny insect, tho
beautiful butterfly, and God-like man,
are each endowed according to their
kind, with that instinct or intelligence

Wisdom, justice and love aro tho
three great standard-bearers whose
sumptuous hands meto out to each indi?
viduality the measure of Divine, univer?
sal law, designed by that mighty Mind
who fashioned alike noble man in his
own imago and all lesser created things.
Tho beauties and wonders of nature
never cease to tho progressive human
j mind. Eternal progress it written with
unerring Huger of Deity upon all. Thc
i theme of human lifo is laden with sweet
inceuso to all who, liko angels of mercy
and goodness, aro ever busy, ever readj
to devise menus for the alleviation of hu
man woe and tho prolongation of life.
The uucensiug march of individual one

DISEASES CAUSED DY LIVER COMPLAINT
Tho Human System, tho most peri
of all tho works of tho Creator, is
constituted that, to bo entirely healtl
it must throw ott* tho waste, worn-<
and poisonous materials as fast as it tal
on new materials from our food fl
driuk. Tho food is assimilated and mt
into nourishing and healthy blood pr
cipally through the offices of tho stoma
liver and lungs. The worn-out mater
aro mostly excreted by the liver, lui
aud kidueys; but all medical men bi
heretofore failed to recoguizo tho TI
importance of the liver as a blood-pi
fying and excreting organ. Tho ta
learned German physiologists, who b
their assertions upon actual experime
only, state that tho amount of n
which should bo manufactured by
liver and poured iuto th' intestines e
day is two and one-half pounds,
persons interested to know this fact, i
the experiments to prove it, may cont
Verdaungs-sac/e und Stoffwechsel, Li
zig, 1852, or they may seo a resume
those facts in Prof. Dalton's Physiology.
Remember one thing more: Tho bile
is something more than tho natural phy?
sic of the bowels, os hos heretofore been
thought by eminent medical men. Tho
bile is mostly made up of the waste mat?
ter of the Llo< d-effete, worn-out and
injurious n.ate ials. If tho liver does
not make this bile and pour it into the
intestines daily, it remains in the blood
os a poison. It poisons the blood itself,
and circulates as irritating and poison?
ous matter in the blood to ovory organ
in tho system.
The blood, poisoned with tho daily
accumulated excess of bile, returns from
tho liver to the heart, and tho nerves of
tho heart are affected, and wo havo an
oppressed feeling at the heart and palpi?
tation ; and if this cause is long conti?
nued, wo get a chronic irritation, undue
excitement, and morbid nutrition of the
heart, developing many forms of Hcarl
Just so with tho LUNGS. Tho bile
poisoned blood goes from tho upper and
right cavity of tho heart to tho lowci
cavity, and thence directly to tho lungs
circulating all through those most de
licato organs. The lung tissues art
poisoned and irritated, and they inviti
tho scrofulous humors of tho blood bc
causo they are thus irritated. Henc<
Consumption, which is local scrofula, s(
defined and proved by Lugol and all th
most scientific authors. Tho lungs tr;
to oxygenize and purify tho blood, nn<
they do it in a great measure; but tho;

man's foul breath. Catarrh, Bronchitis

lion itself, aro the results. If thc Live

that ni LE-tho lungs would not Lav
Just so with the BLOOD itself. It goc
from tho lungs back to the upper Ie
cavity of the heart, thence to tho lowe
cavity, and thence through tho arterii
and capillaries to every organ and tissu
of thc system. Among tho most impo
tant of those organs aro the kidney
furnishing tho urinary secretion a mo
important excretion. But the kidne;
themselves are irritated and congest?
by tho presence of tho bile-poisont
blood, and they become diseased. Eve:
person who has had a liver disease knoT
that the urine is scanty, high-colore
and loaded with red deposits, at time
or other diseased products. Hence, di
eases not only of the kidneys, but al
of tho bladder.
But this is not all-far from it. Tl
poisonous blood goes to the BRAIN, ai
affects the groat electrical contre of i
vitality; and the brain, stimulated 1
unhealthy blood, cannot perform ?
office healthfully. The person has da
ness, headache, incapacity to keep 1

Disease of the LIVER itself is the mi
common of all diseases. The sudd
changes of the New Eugland clima
tho malarial influence of tho West, n
the heat also of the South, as well as 1
dietetic habits of tho people of t
country, and other causes, all tend
develop tho Liver disease, in some
thc varied forms, throughout tho Uni
States. This is true of both man r
beast, as every butcher knows that
finds the livers of cattle, sheep and sw
diseased ten times where ho finds <
other organ diseased once. Almost cv
person is bilious at some time, and mi
are constantly bilious. It may bo m

structural or organio affection. But

J?. Leonidas Hamilton, AT. D.-DEAB
Sut: Duty prompts me to a most grate?
ful acknowledgment of the astonishing
success of your treatment in my case.
For nearly three years I havo suffered
from Catarrh, Nervous Rheumatism,
Diver Complaint, and Extreme Nervous?
ness, insomuch that life had become an
intolerable burdon, and death was look?
ed for as my only release; physically and
mentally broken down, I was utterly
unable to do tho duties of a minister,
and was preparing to retire from the
ranks, when providentially, my eyes fell
on your advertisement in tho New York
MetJiodisl. I had already traveled far
and expended so much in the vain effort
to secure a cure, that it was with great
reluctance and little hope that I address?
ed you. Your reply inspired me with
hope-your remedies were received and
taken, and the result was as marvellous;

Hr. Leonidas Hamilton, Jib. 546 Broaa
icay-MY DEAR BENEFACTOR : A sense c
duty impels me to say, that yonr medJ
cines have done for me what no othe
physician has been able to do. I hov
been a sufferer for many years from d?
eases contracted while laboring as Mit
sion arv in Africa. Last fall I was dc
dining fast, and had all the symptoms c
quick consumption. I applied to yo
for help. You remarked: "Before lg?
through with you, I will make you fe*
several years younger than yon have eve
felt since you left Africa." I thou gi:
but little of THAT, as I had often receive
similar assura7ices from eminent phys:
cians, both here and in Europe; but i
less than two weeks all my sympton
were entirely changed, and my boult
and strength improved very fast. In
few weeks I found myself in the enjo;
ment of better health, and able to pe
form more labor, mental and physics
than at any previous time since I le
Africa. May Qod bless you in all yoi
researches in his great laboratory, ai
make you his agent in restoring tho
aauds to health.
