Phiudklmia, April 9, 1846. Last Ai'just a year, I caught a violent cold, k 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, nowever, I daily grew worse; a violent cough set in, then pain inmybreastand between my shoulders. I now suffered great pression from the great sccretion of purulent mat ter in my lungs. I 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 ofl me ! This was my condition v-hen 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 medicine is far superior tc every other remedy for Consumption-of the Lungs. J.

LOUIS FONTA1N, jr., partner of the firm Pantain & Son, Chemists and Prescription i8is to the Royal University, Paris, has established at Washington city, D.

Elliott's Buildings Pennsylvania Avenue, near Jackson Hall, which they offer to the American public as a sure antidote for Con sunmtion, in its advanced as well as incipient stages. Acting directly upon the.LUNGS, and arresting their decay, it not only soothes and quiets at once the distress and pain attendant upon this hereto fore regarded fatal disease, but restores the lungs and their sympathising organs, to natural and heal thy action. Accompanying each package are gen eral instructions and directions (translated) for its use, adapted to all cases, and it strictly followed, will not fail, in every instance?If the lungs are not wholly consumed?of restoring to health which may be permanently secured by future care and 4voiding too much exposure to atmospheric changes.

THESE Bittera are purely a vegetable com pound, and are offered to the public from principle of benevolence, under the fullest convic tion that they will be found a safe and sovereign ?emedy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium phantly tested, not only by some of the most re pectable families and physicians in the Slate of South Carolina, who have furnished ample testi mony as to their decided excellence, but also by the proprietor, who, for ten years, suflered all the gloom incident to that stubborn Bnd 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, os seen from the directions which accompany each bottle, may be given with entire safety to an infant iu the month. With pleasure, and for ihe benefit of mankind, I send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit i to"19- , In the year 1838, when the cholera was in Charleston, S. C., I was compelled to Bend a servant I to the city. On his return, he was suddenly attack ed wilh most violent pain in his bowels, so much so as to causa apprehension that he would expire in a short time, if medical aid could not be procured. I immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv ing a wine gla^s full at a dose. In the course ol a very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing him at the same time into a profuse perspiration. I then continued to give it in small doses, from two to I three tea spoonsfull, which resulted in a happy re covery. Sine* then I have been using it constantly in my family, in cases of cholera morbus, cholera I infantum, diarrh?a and general debility, and in every instance found it highly beneficial. Home constitutions, however, require much larger doses I than others. J0S D 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 for your in valuable compound. In justice not only to the me dicine, but for the benefit of others who mny be suf fering from the same malady, Dyspepsia, 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 digestion was jo 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. 1 have also used Colleton Bitters freely in iny family for cholera infantum, cholera morbus, general debility, and as a tonic after fever, with great success As a family medicine I deem it invaluabia, and do con scieniiou&ly recommend it.

THIS remarkable invention, which has received the almost universal approbation of the medical profession of Great Britain, comprise* an entirely new applicntioir of Galvanism, as a remedial agent by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries, Electric and Magnetic Machines, dtc. are entirely, dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Gal van' ism applied without any of the objections which are inseparable from the general mode now in use. The Galvanic Rings have been uesd with entire ?uceesa in all eases ?!' rheumatism, acute or chronic, applying to the head, face, or limbs; gout, tie-dolo-' reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stillness of the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia, nervous tremors, dizziness of the head, pains in the 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, tl.ey have been been found equally successful. Their ex traordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed to be he belived, and as a certain preventive for the preceding complaints they are equally recommended. The rings are of different prices, being made of all sizes, and of various ornamental patterns, and can be worn by the most delicate female without the slightest inconvenience. In fact, the sensation is ra her agreeable than otherwise. The Galvanic Belts, Bracelets, Bands, Gar ters, Necklaces, See. <fcc. These articles are adapted to the waist, arms, wrists, limbs, ankles, or any p*rt of the body with perfect convenience. The Galvanic Necklaces are used with greater benefit in cases of bronchitis or affections of the throat gener ally ; also, in cases of nervous deafness; and with almost uniform success as a preventive for appopiexy, epiloptic fits, and similar complaint*. i Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion* with the Galvanic Rings, and all their modifications. I his composition has been pronounced by the * rench Chemists to be one of the most extraordi. nary discoveries of modern science. Pull explana tions and directions accompany it The nrmhinod inventions are in every way pcrfectly*.l|?isile8s; they are at prices within reach of all, and the discoverer only requests' a fair trial, as a test of their surprising efficacy and permanent benefit. Oowstii's Galvanic Strengthening Plas ters?These articles form another valuable applica tion of the mysterious influence of Galv&nism. They are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic Rings and their modifications, acting upon the same P'ifSjfr'e.but having the advantage of more local ap plication- They are confidently recomended as a valuable addition in the speedy cure of rheumatism, acute or chronic; in all nervous complaints, and as a positive remedy in cases of pain and weakness in the chest or back, pain in the side, in asthmatic affections, and in weakness or oppression of the pulmonary or gans, In spinal complaints their effects are of the most decided character, and they have often been used with complete success. They are also of the greatest advantage in pains and weakness ef the breast, and are highly recommended for many of those complaints to which females are especially li able. As an effectual means for strengthening the system when debilitated with disease and other cau ses, as a certain aid in constitutional weakness, as a preventive for colds, and in ail affections of the chest generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Plas ters will be found of great and permanent advan tage.
