erally.
k THREEFOLD VIRTUE.?By promoting
A circulation, strengthening the system and
facilitating 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.
They 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 I
hands of the proprietor, and the greatly increasing
sales 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.

Philadelphia, April 9, 1846.
Last Airgust a year, \ 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 gel rtd 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 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 off
me ! This was my condition 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. 1
firmly believe this medicine is far superior to
everv other remedy for Consumption of the l-.ungs.

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
?einedy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium
>hantly tested, not only by some of the moat re
sectable families and physicians in the State of I
touth Carolina, who have furnished ample testi
nony as to their decided excellence, but also by the
proprietor, who, for ten years, suffered all the gloom
incident to that stubborn ahd distressing disease.
They possess the peculiar excellence, denied to
most oiher Biuers, 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 iufant 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 tlie 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 n
short time, if medical aid could not be procured. I
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 same time into a profuse perspiration. I
then continued to give it in Bmail doses, from two to
three tea spoonsfnil, which resulted iu a happy re
covery. Since then I have been using it constantly
in my family, in cases of cholera morbus, cholera
?.i?\unain) wra*???****? oo/l in I
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require much larger doses j
than others. ^ D JENKIN8
? Blujflon, 8. G., 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 compounds In justice not only to the me
dicine, but for the benefit of others who may be suf
fering from the ssase malady,Dyspepsia, with which j
I was for years afflicted, I Cael it a duty incumbent
on me to stale that I am now restored to perfect
health. When I commenced taking the Colleton
Bitters it was ?s a last resort. My debility from in
digestion was so great that a cure was looked upon
as almost hapless. AAet taking it regularly and
perseveringly for some lisse, my strength and di
gestive powers wera eotbely restored. I have never
taken a single does of any other medicine for more
than five years past. I can now eat the richest food
| without any unpleasant feelings whatever. I have
?feo used Colleton Bitters freely in my family for
tkolera i tfonlum, cholera morbus, general debility,
and as a tonic after fever, with great success. As a
family I deem it invaluable, aud do con
scientiously recommend iu

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
might be established on the plan of some of the
most 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 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 thev will meet with the most respect
ful attention, and parties may depend at all times
on being served with promptitude and at moder
ate chargcs.
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.
