PRINCIPAL ESTABLISHMENT IN

THE CANTON TEA COMPANY has betn
p< pularly known fur many years. This is the
largem und oltii?t Ten Establisinent in America.?
The public hive hud lull proof of (heir integrity anil
responsibility. But such hun I>een the great ami
prea.-iug deinaml for their TEAS of late, that they
have (wen obliged to enlarge, to a great extent, toeir
two principal establishments in New York, viz:
125 CHATHAM AND 103 GREENWICH
STREETS.
Thry moreover possess facilities, in relation to the
Tea Trade, in a very abundant degree, and doubt
less, superior to any other Tea Concern in America.
Their scrupulous regard to all principles that tend
to elevate the character of a large house, is well un
derstood, and has already secured them a connec
tion, probably, larger than all oilier Tea Establish
meiits utilted, and ihey consequently are determined
to sell Teas purer, mure fragrant, and perfect fu
the prices, in the aggregate, than any house in the
world?China excepted.
They most zealously invite the attention of the in
habitants of WASHINGTON, D. O., to theit
Agency, where the following assortments ate always
on hand; and they feel no hesitation in stating that
wherever a single trial is made, a very decided pre
ference is given to the celebrated Teas of the CAN

A CURE FOR LIFE SECURED.
DR. UPIIAM'S Vegetable Electuary,
an internal remedy for the Files,?prepared by
Dr. A Uphatn, M. D., a iegula.- educated Physician
who has devoted fifteen years attention almost en
tirely to this disease.
The Electuary is a certain cure for the Piles, and
also for other diseases of a similar nature, which are
frequently found in conjunction with Piles, Rashes,
Inflammation of the Liver, and Spleen; Inflamma
tion, Soreness, and Ulcerbt on of the Stomach, Bow
els, Kidneys, and bladder ; Inflammatory and Mer
curial Rheumatism ; Impurity of Blood ; Weakness
and Inflammation of the Spine.
THE VEGETABLE PILE ELECTUARY is
? he only really successful remedy for that dangerous
and distressing complaint, the PILES, ever offered
to the American Public.
Mark this: it is an INTERNAL REMEDY?
not an external application?and will cure any case
of Piles, either Bleeding or Blind, Iaternaj or Exter
nal ; and probably the only thing that will. There
is no mistake about it. It is a positive cure?speedy
and permanent. It is also a convenient medicine to
take, and improves the general health in a remarkn
ble mariner.
It is very mild in its operation, and may be taken
in ca*es of the most acute inflammation, without
danger. All external applications are in the highest
degree disagreeable, inconvenient, and offensive ; and
fr..m the very nature of the disease, temporary in
their eflects. This medciino attacks the disease at
its source, and REMOVING THE CAUSE, ren
ders the cure CERTAIN and PERMANENT.
The Electuary contains mineral medicine, no Al
oes, Coeocynth, Gamboge, or other powerful and ir
ritating purgative. No fear of taking cold while unf
der it* influence; no change in diet necessary. If |
taken according to directions, a cure for life is guar
anteed

For a number of years my Teeth and Gums were
so much out of order as to prevent me from eating
with pleasure, and caused me much pain. Having
heard of Wheeler's Tenberry Tooth Wash, I do
certify that I tried one small bottle of it, and in less
than two weeks my Teeth and Gums were sound
and good. I believe that the use of it would be an
advantage to many others. J. BRAZER.

Having used Wheeler's Teaberry Tooth Wash
and powder, I have found them to possess cleansing
unl purifying properties, and while they whiten and
beautify the Teeth, they have a beneficial ellect up
on the gums, by imparting to them free and health
ful action. F. A. RAYNOLD.
I have used Whaler's Tenberry Tooth Wnsh,
and its eflecls upon my 't'eeth and Gums hnve given
to me a high opinion of its merits. 1 cheerfully re
commend it to the general use.

cured tooth ache, soreness of the gums, removed

quence of the acid of u paint used in coloring prints,
my teeth became very much injured, giving excru
ciating pain ut intervals, for between two and three
years. Wheeler's Teaberry Tooth Wash was used,
and has entirely cured them, which, in certificate

for painful teeth, and also desire a pleasant Tooth
Wash, may with confidence try Wheeler'sTealwrry

Wheeler's Tealierry Tooth Wash having removed
scurf and cured soreness of the gums, which had

CERTIFICATES.
Washington City, D. C.
It ia very seldom that I have ever recommended
any ixw invention, because I knew that rwommen
dations are so frequent and easily obtained, that they
are in general of little value. But I consider it
nothing more th?n an act of justice to the inventor
to l>ear testimony to the good qualities of Harper's
Metalic Compound for sharpening Razors, and to
say it is the very best material for the purpose that
has come to my notice. I have made a fair trial of
it, and have never found any thing equal to it for
giving a keen edge to a Razor.

We, the subscribers, have used Harper's Razor
Powder, for several yesrs, und from our own experi
ence find it to be the very best material we have ever
used for giving a fine keen edge to a Razor. No
man who shaves himself, should, in our opinion, be
without it. One box will list any gentleman for his
own use, four or five years.
