Pkiladklphta, April 9, 1846. -Last August a yeapj I caught a violent cttd, in consequence of getting wet in a shower of rain. A circumstance so common gave me no immediate concern, supposing that I should soon get rid of it. On the contrary, however, I daily grew worse; a violent cough set in, then pain in my breast and between my shoulders. I now suffered great op pression from the great secretion of purulent mat ter in my lung9. 1 became greatly alarmed; and my friends considered my situation extremely critical, the more so as loss of appetite, hectic fever, and night sweats rendered me as weak as a child, and at night the sweat literally poured off me ! This was my condition vhen 1 commenced using " Thomson's Compound Syrup of Tar and Wood Naphtha." I procured one bottle, and ex perienced so much benefit that I resolved to con tinue it. It is now six months since I ceased using the medicine, and the cure remains perfect. 1 firmly believe this mcdicine is far superior to every other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs.! J. J.

COLLETON BITTERS. THESE Bitters are purely a vegetable com pound, and are offered to the public from principle of benevolence, under the fullest eonvic Son that they will be found a safe and sovereign ?emedy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium jhnntly tested, not only by some of the most re sectable families and physicians in the State ol iouth Carolina, who have furnished ample testi tionv as to their decided excellence, but also by the proprietor, who, for ten years, suffered all the gloom incident to that stubborn and distressing disease. They possess the peculiar excellence, denied to most other Bitters, of not proving injurious by con tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious ingredient, and, as seen from the directions which accompany each bottle, may be given with entire safety to an infant in the month. With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I j send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit ^Tn the year 1838, when the cholera was in Charleston, S. C., I was compelled to send a servant to the city. On his return, he was suddenly attack ed with most violent pain in his bowels, so much so as to cause apprehension that he would expire in a short time, if meJical aid could not be procured, immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv ing a wine glass full at a dose. In the course of a very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing him at .the some time into a profuse perspiration. then continued to give it in small doses, from two to three tea spoonsfull, which resulted in a happy re covery. Since then I have been using it constantly in my family, in cases of cholera moibus, cholera infantum, diarrhea a and general debility, and m every instance found it highly beneficial. Some constitution, however, require much larger doses than others. p JENKINS Bluffton, S. C., 1846. It is with feelings of gratitude as well as pleasure that I take this method of giving my testimony of the great estimation which I entertain f?r your in valuable compound. In justice not only to the mc dir.ine, but for the benefit of others who may be suf fering from the same malady, Dysj^psia, with which I was for years afflicted, I feel it a duty incumbent on me to state that I am now restored to perfect, health. When I commenced taking the Colleton ' Bitters it was as a last resort. My debility from in i digestion was so great that a cure was looked upon as almost hopeless. After taking it regularly and perseveringly for some time, my strength and di gestive powers were entirely restored. I have never taken a single dose of any other medicine for more than five years past. I can now eat the richest food without any unpleasant feelings whatever. I have also used Colleton Bitters freely in my family for cholera infantum, cholera morbus, general debility, and as a tonic after fever, with great success. As a family medicine I deem it invaluable, and-do con scientiously recommend it. A* M? K? 8/. John's Cnilfton, S. C., December, 1845.

The Galvanic Ringa have been ucsd with entire success in all eases of rheumatism, acute or chronic, applying to the head, face, or limbs; gout, Uc-dolo reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stillness of the iolnta, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia, chest and side, general debility, deficiency of ner vous and physical energy, and all nervous disorders. In cases of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a nervous derangement of the digestive organs l ey have been been found emially successful.
