Frank. Leslie's Ladies' Gazette for Jan
uary. We most heartily and unhesitatingly
commend this publication to the attention and
patronage of our lady readers. It will be of
practical use to them being by far the most
complete and r-ally useful publication of the
kind with which we are acquainted. Could
they see the number before us with its superb
steel fashion plate, representing a group of la
dies just entering a private box at the opera
its clear and minute description of the fashions
for January its patterns and directions for
needlework its numerous and varied designs
for head dresses, morning dresses, bonnets,
cloaks, kc, kc, with accompanying descrip
tions, we are sure they would prononnco it "a
love of a Gazette."
Frakk Leslie's New York Jouusal of Ro
mance, General Literature, Science and Art.
The January number of this journal contains
Bixty-four folio pages of useful and interesting
matter, with numerous illustrations. A glance
at the table of contents will suffice to show
that it is truly what it purports to bo; &nd that
while a portion of it not an undue portion,
however, is devoted to romance, general liter
ature, science and art are not neglected. We
rarely meet, in any publication of the kind,with
so much that is really worth reading, and that,
at the same time, i so well calculated to attack
the attention of the general reader:

WONDERFUL AXD EXTRAORDIXARY CURE
OP RHFXVATISX OP TWKSTT YEAB'S STANDINO.
Never in my life have I had so much pleasure, in
doing anything as in giving this certificate to the
world, and I hope that it may be the cause of thou
sands of my fellow creatures being relieved from
that dreadful disease, rheumatism. My wife has
been afflicted with it for twenty years, most of the
time suffering excruciating pains in every part of
her body. Having do appetite whatever, she was
reduced to almost a skeleton. So violent were the
pains that she seldom could sleep without faking
large doses of opium. Every joint was swelled very
much, and her knees, hands, and neck, covered
with lrg lumps. She could do no. kind of work,
the sinews and muscles being so hard and contrac
ted that her limbs we're drawn together, so that
she was obliged to be in bed constantly. In th'n
) condition ebe had beet; for twenty years, without.
I geUingnny relief from everything she used, until
: the commenced the use of H. G. FARRELL'S A-
RABIAN LINIMENT, the first boltle of which
produced a great change. She has now used five
bottles, and the swellirgs have nssrly all gone
down jain has entirely left her; she sleeps well
and soundly; is more fleshy than ever she was in her
life: has an excellent appetite, and spins and sews
all day. By the use of a few bottles more she must
be as well as she ever was. If any ono doubts this
wonderful cure, he has only to call at my residence
near Peoria, and learn the circumstances from my
wife's owr lips, or he can further inquire of any of
inj neighbors. SAMUEL ELSOX.
H. G. FARRELL'S ARABIAN LINIMENT is
also an excellent remedy for palsy, sprains, bruises,
cramps, chilblains, burns, pains, toothache, sore
eyes, etc., and in horses or cattle is the best reme
dy in the world where an external application is re
quired. Look out for Counterfeit!.
The public are cautioned against another counter
eit,which has lately made its appearance, called W
B Farrcll's Arabian Linimeut.the most danserous of
all the counterfeits, because his having the name of
arrellmany will buy. in good faith, without the
knowledge that a counterfeit exists.and they will
only discover their error when the spurious mixture
has wrought its evil effects. The genuine article is

The Hydromagon is a valuable discovery for pro
jecting the feet from damp or cold, and there
fore a prentive of many Lung discase,without any
doctoring h tever. The Hydromagon is in the form
of s sole, and worn inside the boot or shoe. Its
met icated character is a powerful antitode to dis
ease. For Gentlemen it will be funnd agTeea-ble, warm,
and healthy, to wear in the eldest or rainiest
weather, as the foot c.'.unot become wet if tho Hy
dromagen is iucrted. Ladies may wear the light
est sided fcvols or shoes in the most inclement weath
er with impunity; whilo Consumption, so prevalent
among the young of our country, may bo thwarted
by their general adoption. They entirely supersede
over-shoes, as the latter causes the feci to prespiro
in a very unhealthy manner; and, besides, are not
dangerous wear to pedestrians in icy weather, like
india rubbers. While the latter cause the feet to
eppear extremely large, the Hydro'r.agen, being a
mere thin slice of eork prepared, peculiarly placed
inside, does not increase the size of the boot, or
I cause the foot to appear untidy. To children tbey
j are extremely valuable, as they may engage in ex-
ercisc witn comtort aui nealthy cfiects. I heir ex
pense is so slight as to scarce need mention: be
sides those who patronize them will find their year
ly doctor's bills much diminished thereby.
As the Hydromageu is becoming more known, its
sale is incrasing to an almost incredible extent.
Last year in London, Manchester, Birmingham,
Liverpool, Glasgow, Leeds, Dublin, Paris, Ant
werp, Hamburgh and Berlin, our sal?s reached 1,
