erally.
A THREEFOLD VIRTUE.-By promoting
circulation, strengthening the system and
itating digestion, Dr. Wood's Sarsaparilla and
wild Cherry Bitters will restore the most confirm
ed invalid to health. Where either these effects
are necessary to the restoration, the " Bitters "
will be found to possess every quality desired,
rhey have been used already with the greatest
success, in many obstinate cases of impurity of the
blood, nervous irritation, Dyspepsia, low spirits,
Scrofula, palpitation of the heart, chronic head
ache and Rheumatism. They are indeed a happy
combination of powerful, yet safe and salutary
vegetable remedies, of a sterling and unimpeach
able reputation. They have won their popularity
solely by their intrinsic merits, and that they have
been successful, numerous certificates in the
hands of the proprietor, and the greatly increasing
sale* fully attest. Those desirous of an agreeable
yet efficient tonic or alternative medicine, need
seek no further, for in this preparation they will
find all that is desired.

ANOTHER WONDERFUL CURE?
Philadelphia, April 9, 1846.
Liast August a year, I caught a violent cold, 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
between my shoulders. I now suffered great op
pression from the great secretion of purulent mat
ter in my lungs. I became greatly alarmed; and j
my friends considered my situation extremely I
critical, the more so as lass 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 cdndition when 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. I
firmly believe this medicine is far superior to
every other remedy for Consumption of the Lunes.

COLLETON BITTERS.
THESE Bitters 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 Dytpepsia. They have been trium
>hantly tested, not only by soma of the most re
spectable families and physicians in the Suite of
South Carolina, who hare furnished ample testi
mony 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, snd, 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
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit*
I ters.
In the yesr 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 csuse apprehension that he would expirs in a
short time, if medical aid could not be procured. I
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
ing a wine glass full st a dose. In the course of a
very short time it acted ss an emetic, and throwing
him at the same time into a profuse perspiration. I
then continued to give it in smalt doses, from two to
three tea spoonsful!, which resulted in a happy re
covery. Since then I have been using it constantly
in my family, in cases of cholera morbus, cholers
infantum, diarrheas and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require much larger doses
than others.
JOS. D. JENKINS.
Blvfftoti, S, C., 1846.
I 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. Ia justice not only to the me
dicine, but for the benefit of others who may 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 ss a last resort. My debility from in
digestion was so great that a cure was looked upon
as almost hepeless. After tsking 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 est the richeslfood
without any unpleasant feelings whatever. 1 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.

Dr. Christie'* Galvanic Rings and Mag
netic Fluid. ' ^
TIIS remarkable invention, which hat received
the almost universd approbation of the medical
profession of Great Britain, comprise# an entirely
new application of Galvanism, aa a remedial agent
by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries,
Electric and Magnetic Machines, dtc. are entirely,
dispensed with, and the myaterioua power of Gdvan
ism applied without any of the objectiooa which are
ineeparable from the general mode now in use.
The Galvanic Rings have been uesd with entire;
success in all eases ef rheumatism, acute or chrome,
applying to the head, face, or limbs; gout, ttc-dolo
reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick
headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits,
cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stiffness oi
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 aj
nervous derangement of the digestive organs, tley
have been been found eoually successftil. Their ex
traordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed
to be be belived, and as a certain preventive for the
preceding complaints they are equally recommended.
The rings are of different prices, being mads of all
,jTy, and of various ornamental pattern*, and can
be worn by the most delicate female without the
slightest inconvenience. In fact, the aensatioo is ra
ber agreeable than otherwise.
, T?* Gaivajtic Brits, Bracilrts, Baitos, Ga
tkrs, Nkcklacks, &c. &c.?These articles a
adapted to the waist, arms, wrists, limbs, ankles, or
any part of the body with perfect convenience. The
Galvanic Necklaces are used with greater bandit in
cases of bronchitis or affections of the throat genes
ally ; also, in cases of nervous deafness j and with
almost uniform success as a preventive for appoplexy
epileptic fits, and similar complaint*.
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is uaed in connexion
with the Galvanic Rings, and all theft modifications.
This composition has been pronounced by the
French Chemists to be one of the most extraordi
nary discoveries of modern scienoa. Full explana
tions and directions accompany it The combined
inventions are In every way perfectly harmless; they
areat prices within reach of all, and the discoverer
only requests a fair trial, as a ,test of their surprising
efficacy and permanent benefit.
Christirs Gaitawic 8*r*m?th*wtn? Pias
ters.?These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. They
are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic
I and their modifications, acting upon the aame
principle, but having the advantage of more local ap
plication' They are confidently reco mended as a
valuable in the speedy cure of rheumatism,
acute or chronic; in all nervous complaints, and as a
positive remedy in caeea of pain and weakness in the I
chest or back,oain m the side, in asthmatic affections, I
and in w?akm*s W< oppression of the pulmonary or
?ans. 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
create* advantage in pains and weakness sf the
breast, and are highly recommended for many of
those complaints to which females are especially 11- r
able. As sn effectual means for strengthening the
system when debilitated with disease and other eau
ms. as a certain aid in constitutional weakness, aa
ters witt be found of great and permanent advan

AT the suggestion of many of the most respec
table citizens of Washington, and in accor
:e with a general wish expressed by visiters at
the seat of Government, that a commodious and
genteel place of resort for general refreshments
micht be established on the plan of some of the
most celebrated Northern and Eastero Restaura
teurs, the extensive establishment ^own ^ the
Fronting the Unitarian Church, and in rear of
Coleman's Hotel, has been refitted and furnished
for the purpose, and the Saloons are now an
nounced as being ready for the reception of com
pany, with a full supply of choice Game, Oysters,
and every delicacy of the season.
A separate entrance to the establishment will
introduce ladies and gentlemen to reserved Sa
loons, where they will meet with the most respect
ful attention, and parties may depend at all times
on being served with promptitude and at moder
ate charges.
The style in which these Saloons are fitted up,
and the manner in which the friends of the estab
lishment and the public will be served, it is con
fidently believed, will be satisfactory.
