ples which have made the moat wonder?
ful cures in the annals of medicine.
Liver, Blood, Lung and Nervous diseases
are now virtually under his full control,
and yield to the magic, subtle power of
his remedies. I have myself seen num?
bers of those who have been saved from
the hand of death by his power, when
the unfortunate Bufferers seemed doom?
ed to an early grave, and all other treat?
ment waa of no avail. In addition to
what I oan vouch for personally, I have
amplis evidence from other clergymen,
physicians and eminent men o?. the
highest character, who have also been
saved by this wonderful treatment, and
who speak in the highest praise and gra?
titude of Dr. Hamilton as a physician
and a gentleman of honor and integrity.
It is but simply stating the positivo
truth when I say that it is well known
throughout this country that where his
works are known and the fruits of his
skill have been witnessed, he is highly
esteemed by the people as the most emi?
nent and remarkable physician in the
treatment of chronic diseases of the age.
Aa tho result of ? long personal and
familiar acquaintance with Prof. Hamil?
ton and his unparalleled success as a
professional man pf the highest order, I
frankly express the hope that diseased
humanity in every part of our land may
avail themeolvea of his most remarkable
skill, and thus share the noble blessings
so kradly and freely bestowed npon all.

ANOTHER CLERGYMAN HEALED I
BOONTON, N. J.
JR..L. Hamilton, M. D.-DRAB Sm: It
is with pleasure that I communicate the
result of the use of your medicines.
When I first visited your office in New
York, I could scarcely walk into the
office without exhaustion. With all your
prestige as a successful physician, I had
but little hope that you could cure me.
There was nothing strange in this. Four
?ears and four months had passed away,
ut during that period I had suffered
constantly with chronio diarrhoea and
piles. I had some of the bost physi?
cians, and used everything I heard of
that I could prooure, but all in vain.
Why should I think that you oould do
me more good than others? But, sir,,
justice and gratitude compel me to say
that after the use of your medicines the
result was A complote cure. I cannot
expect to bo freed from liabilities to at?
tacks of. disease any moro than other,
men. I. wish I had tho voice of seven
thunders, and oould assemble the sick in
the world? I would direct them to you,
sir, as one fully comp?tent to heal, and
whose generous ami noble nature would
not allow exhorbitant charges. Yours
truly,. BEY. GEORGE H. JONES.

to give you the results of your remedies.
The medicines came to hand in due

be a giving away of the disease; and at
the end of the third week a decided
chango for the better was manifest. I

A HARD CASE !-SPINE, KIDNEYS, LIVER
AND BLADDER DISEASED.
DB. HAMILTON: My best friend and
brother-You have saved my lifel This
is not only certain to my own apprehen?
sion, bnt all my personal friends, who
have known my sufferings so long and so
well, join in this opinion. From a spinal
disease I have suffered for years what ne
tongue can tell. Besides this disease, I
have been afflicted with aggravated
affections of the liver and spleen; and
my kidneys and bladder have been so
diseased, that other physicians havo
tried their skill in vain. I have laid ia
hospitals for mouths, and I have again
and again consulted the most eminent
physicians and surgeons in Boston, Now
Vork, Charleston, Cincinnati, Chicago,
and other cities, without regard to ex?
pense. They were men of learning and
great reputation, but, in all honesty, I
must say they did mo no good. After
trying thoroughly thoir skill, thoy have
had to acknowlodgo my case as compli
cated and hopeless-"incurable," as they
hayo termed it. lu nine weeks you have
oared mo-made me a new man. I had
no hope? nor had my friande; bnt I am
now right; I aa well; and rejoice that,
after eighteen yean of suffering, I know
what it is to enjoy the blessed, joyous
feeling of health, vigor, life, freedom
from pain, and With fte power to work,
think, and enjoy myself. I offer yon
this testimonial gladly; I hope it will
lead hundreds to you. I know that
whereof I here testify; and I shall ever
take the greatest satisfaction io recom?
mending you to all the afflicted, for to
yon I owe my life.

"I return my sincere thanks for having
permanently oared me of rheumatism,
after having suffered severely for about
seven years. When I had doctored with
other doctors, and tried all tho patent
medioines that I could get, without avail,
and was so bad that I conld hardly get
out of my honse, and part of tho time
not able to get oat of my bed, as I was
affected in nearly every joint, I thought
I would try you as a last resort. To my
great joy, in less than three weeks I was
able to go ont and jump with the most
active man in the place. In ono month,
I was perfectly cured, and thad gained
seventeen pounds; and I never had bet?
ter health in my life than I have enjoyed
for the last six months. May God bless
you and your miraculous remedies."

AFTON, N. Y.
To Prof. P.. L. Hamilton.
DEAB DOCTOR: It waa between six and
eoven years I was afflicted with that dire
malady, the Asthma, and after employ?
ing the best medical skill in the country,
and taking all the patent medicines re?
commended, without avail or any per?
manent relief, I began to think there
was no cure for it; but noticing an ad?
vertisement of yours in one of the New
York papers, it was with the greatest re?
luctance I wrote you, as I then expected
it would not benefit me, and would bo
worse than useless. In this I was greatly
disappointed, as I had not taken the
medicine more than two weeks, beforo I
was able to do light work on the farm.
Before this, I could not attend to any
business, boing completely prostrated,
and after taking two packages, consi?
dered myself perfectly cured and my
health fully re-established, tho bron?
chial difficulties and all bad symptoms
being entirely removed. All this is at?
tributable to your unrivaled medicine,
under tho Divine sanction, which I trust
with me will ever be remembered with
gratitude. I cannot close this communi?
cation without expression of my heart?

DR. R. L. HAMILTON-MY DEAR SIR:
Six months ago, when I read your ad?
vertisement in the Metro})olitan Record,
my wife was, and had been for two years,
suffering with liver complaint, chills and
fever, and other ills so common in our
low lands of tho South, and was so re?
duced, (having been confined to her bed
for nearly a year,) that I did not think
sho could ever recover. She commenced
tho uso of your medicines, and to my
surprise began to improve tho first week,
and has steadily gained until the pre?
sent time. Sho is now able to attend to
her household duties, and I deem her
permanently cured. She is lively and
cheerful, and feels that your remedies
should find a placo in every Southern
house. I am also happy to add that your
treatment for rheumatism in my own
case has been equally as satisfactory.
Before using your medicine I bad been
subject to severe attacks for four years,
and, having tried all tho different Pain
Killers, Liniments, ?fcc, despaired of be?
The uso of your medicino promptly,
and, I believe, permanently, cured me.
You can, if you please, moko use of this
letter, ns I feel it my duty to do all in
my power in this humbug age to extend
the practice of one whom I know to be
capable of doing what ho claims. I am
well-known hore, as is also what you have
done for mo, and have already induced
several to apply to you, aud I shall not
rest until I havo made you and your
wonderful cures known to all tho dis?
eased in this region. May God bless the
efforts you put forth for the healing of
the sick and tho afflicted. Yours truly,

Slr. Pendleton's Nomination.
Our telegraphic despatches tell of the
nomination of George H. Pendleton, by
the Exeoutive Committeo of the Demo?
cratic party, as Governor of Ohio, vice
General Rosencranz, declined. When a
party thus puts forward ono of sts best
representatives, the sign is a good one.
Mr. Pendleton has been called "tho
rising star of tho West." He is a man of
lofty character and eminent abilities,
combines in himself many of tho elements
that go to form n high order of states?
manship. A Democrat by conviction,
his mind is yet broad enough to take in
the interests of tho whole country. In
tho last Presidential canvass, no man
made abler speeches, and his him utter?
ances, not wanting in a beautiful poetic
view, wero received by thousands with
delight and admiration. Ohio will do
well to elect him to tho office of Governor.

Tho Laurensville Herald, in an article

whito men;" and contends ,that there is
no wisdom in compromise when political
