ANOTHER WONDERFUL CURE! Philadelphia, April 9, 1846. Last 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 01 1 . 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. 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 oft me ! This was tny condition vhen 1 commenced | using " Thomson's Compound Syrup of Tar and I Wood Naphtha." I procured one bottle, and ex perieuced 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 j everv other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs. I J. J.

Two dollars accompanying an order, will entitle a per son to ona whole and one third package. LOUIS FONTAIN. COLLETON BITTERS. ^B^HESE Bitters are purely a vegetable com A 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 ihantly tested, not only by some of the most re spectable families and physicians in the State of South 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 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 accompauy each bottle, may be given with entire | safety to an iufant in the month. With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, 1 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 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 ipedical aid could not lie 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 small doses, from Itvo to | three tea spoonsfull, which resulted in $ happy re covery. Since then I'havebeen using it constantly iu my family, in cases of cholera moibus, cholera ] infantum, diarrhoea and general debility, and in every instance found it highly beneficial. Some constitutions, however, require much larger dosew | than others. JOS. D. JENKINS. Bluffton, S. 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 compound. In 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 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. I have also used Colleton Bittern freely in my family for cholera infantum, cholera morbus, general debility, and as a tonic alter lever, with great success. As a | family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con scientiously recommend it. A. M. R. St. Johns Colleton, S. C., December, 1845. For sale by the only AgeHt for the District of Columbia, B.

The Galvanic Rings have been ue*d with entire success in all aases ef rheumatism, acute or chronic, applying to the head, face, or limbs ; gout, tic-dolo reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick headache, indigestion, paralyais, palsy, epilepsy, hta, cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stillness of the joints, spinal complaint!, 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, 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 sizes, and of various ornamental pattorns, 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, &c. &c.?These articles are adapted to the waist, arms, wrists, limbs, ankles, or any part of the body with perfect convenience, lhe Galvanic Necklaces are used with greater benefit in cases of bronchitis or affections of the throat gener ally ; also, in casea of nervous deafness; and with 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 extraordu 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. CilHIHTIx's GALVA.NIC StIIENOTHENINO FLAS tkhs. These articles form another valuable applica tion of the mysterious influence of Qalvanism. They 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 and weakness in the chest or back, pain in the side, in asthmatic affections, and in weakness or oppression of the pulmonary or nans. In spinal complaints their effects are of the most decided character, and they have often been used with complete success. I'hey are aUo 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 meons for strengthening the system when debilitated with disease and other cau ses us 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 ^rV CAUTION. The celebrity and success of these articles have caused them to be counterfeited by unprincipled persona. Dr. Christie cautions the public agninst spurious imitations.
