ANOTHER WONDERFUL CUBE.' Philadelphia, April 9, 1846. Last Ai gust a year, I caught a violent cold, in consequence of getting wet in a shower of rain. A circumstance so common gave ine 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 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 mends 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 m? ? was my condition when 1 commenced wr!& v tComP?und sJr?P 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 Lungs. J* J. CHAMBERLAIN, No. 8, Carberry street.

Accompanying each package are gen eral instructions and directions (translated) for it* use, adapted to all eases, and if 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 avoiding too much exposure to atmospheric changes.

Two dollars accompanying an order, will entitle a per son to one whole and one third package. LOUIS FONTAIN. 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 ?ernedy for Dyspepsia. They have been trinm ihsntly tested, not only by seme of the moat re portable families and physicians in the State of touth Carolina, who have furnished ample teeti nony as to their decided excellence, but also by the proprietor, who, for ten years, suffered aU the gloom incident to that stubborn and distressing disease. Tbey 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, aa seen from the directions whioh 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 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 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 of s very short lime 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 resulted in a happy re* covery. Since then I have been using it constantly in my family, in canes of cholera morbus, cholera infantum, diarrhma and general debility, and in every instance found it highly beuefkiak Some constitutions, however, require much larger doses than others. JOS. 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 f>r 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 so greet that a cure was looked upon as almost hopeless. After taking it regularly and perseveringly for Bome time, my strength arid di gestive powers were entirely restored* I have never taken a single dose of any other mcdicine 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 i nfmtum, 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.

Old Frames regilt. may 14 tf Dr. Christie.'* Galvanic Rings and Mag netic Fluid. THIS remarkable invention, which has , received the almost universal approbation of the medical profession of Great Britain, comprises an entirely new -application of Galvanism, as a remedial agent by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteriea, Electric and Magnetic Machines, <5tc. are entirely, dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Galvan ism applied without nny of the objections which are inseparable from the general mode now in use. The Galvanic Rings have been uesd with entire success in all eases af rheumatism, acute or chronic, applying to the bead, face, or limbs; gout, tic-dolo reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits, cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stiffness of the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia, nervous tremors, dizziness of the head, pains in the chest and aide, general debility, deficiency of ner vous and physical energy, and all nervous disorders. In eases 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 Ite 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 aisea, and of various ornamental patterns, and can be worn by the most delicate female without the alighteat inconvenience. In fact, the sensation is ra ber agreeable than otherwise. Tub Galvanic Belts,Bracelets, Banks, Gar ters, Necklaces, &c. Ac. These articles are adapted to the 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 with almost uniform auccess as a preventive for appoplexy, epileptic fits, and similar complaints. ( Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion with the Galvanic Kings, and all their modifications. This composition has Iteon 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. Christie's Galvanic Strengths vino Plas T*us.?These articles form another valuable applica tion of the mysteriooa influence of Galvanism. They are an important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic Rings and their u.odifibatioiis, acting upon the same principle, but having the advantage of more local ap plication* They are confidently rocomended 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 sf the broast, 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 fur colds, and in all afleotions of the chest generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Plas ters will be found of great and permanent advan tage. (Cj* CAUTION. The celebrity and success of these articles have caused them to be counterfeited by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautions the public against spunous imitations. He has but one authorised agency in each city of the Union, where the genuine articles can be pnyujred. The only agents for Washington are? M. H. 8TEVENS & EMMONS, Nos.
