ANOTHER WONDERFUL CUPE!
Philahklphia, April 9, 1846
Last August a year, I caught a violent cold,
consequence of getting wet in a shower of ram.
A circumstance 30 common gave me no immediate
I concern, supposing that I should soon get rid of it.
On the contrary, however, 1 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 luy lungs. 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 oil
me ! This was my condition vhen 1 commencccl
using " Thomson's Compound Syrup of Tar and
Wood Naphtha." I procured one bottle, and ex
perienced so much beneGt that I resolved to con
tinue it. It is now six mouths since I ceased using
the medicine, and the cure remains perfect. 1
firmly'believe this medicine is far superior to
everv other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs.

COLLETON BITTERS.
^IIHESE 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
emcdy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium
ihantly tested, not only by some of the moat re
pectable families and physicians in the State of
iouth Carolina, who have furnished ample teati
nouy as to their decided excellence, but also by the
jroprietor, 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
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit
ters.
In 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 wasauddenly attack
ed with most violent pain in his bowels, so much so
as to cauee apprehension that he would expire in a
short time, if medical aid could not lie procured. I
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
ing a wine gla*s full at a dose. In the course of 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
three tea -spoonsfull, which in a happy re
oovery. Since then I have b?>u using it constantly
in my family, in cases or cholertPfnoibus, cholera
infantum, diarrliaa and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require larger doses
than others.
JOS. D. JENKINS.
Bluff-ton, S. G., 1846.
It is with feelings of gratitude a* well aa 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 me
dicine, but lor 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 slate 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 so great that a cure was looked upon
as almost hopeless. After taking it regularly and
perwjveruigly for some time, my strength and di
gestive powers were entirely restored. I have never
taken a (.ingle doee 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 t nfuntum, cholera morbus, general debility,
and as a tonic after lever, with great success As a
family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con
scientiously recommend it.

Dr. Christie's Galvanic Kings and Mag
netic Fluid.
THIS remarkable invention, which has received
the almost, universal approbation of the medical
profession of Great Britain, comprisea an entirely
new application of Galvanism, a? a remedial agent
by meana of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries,
Electric and Magnetic Machines, See. are entirely,
dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Galvan
ism applied without any ?f the objections which art
inseparable from the general mode now ia use.
The Galvanic Rings have been ucsd with entire
succeaa in ull easea ef rheumatism, acute or chronic,
applying to the head, face, or limbe ; gout, tic-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, dizxiness of the head, pains in thr
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, they
have been been found equally successful. 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 made of all
Bizes, 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 Brltb, Brac*i/rtb, Bands,Gab
txhb, Nkcklacks, &c. &c. These articles are
adapted to ihe waist, arms, wrists, limbs, ankles, or
any part 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 wilh
almost uniform success as a preventive for appOplexy,
epileptic fits, and similar complaints. /
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion
with the Galvanic Rings, and all their modifications.
This composition has been pronounced by the
French Chemists to be one of the most extraordi
nary discoveries of modern science. ^ Full explana
tions and directions accompany it. The combined
inventions are in every way perfectly harmless; 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.
Ciiuistik's Gaiyanic Strbnothrnino PlAS
TEMB^-These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. I hey
are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic
Rings and their .modifications, acting upon the same
principle, 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 aud 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
silin pains and weakness tlic
breast, and are highly recommended for many of
thoM complaints to which females aTe 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 all affections of the
chest generally, ffia cr*t???.~ PW?
ters will be found of great and permanent advan
U tfV CAUTION. The celebrity and success of
thesi articles have caused them to be counterfeited
by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautions the
public against spurious imitations. He has but one

the genuine articles can be procured. The only
agents for Washington are?

A table citizens of Washington, and in accor
dance with a general wish expressed by visiters at
the seat of Government, that a commodious and
genteel place of resort for general refreshments
might be established on the plan of some of the
mewt celebrated Northern and Eastern Restaura
teurs, the extensive establishment known as 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 is 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

The style in which these Saloons are fitted up,
and the manner in which the friends of the estab

fidently believed, will be satisfactory.
