PhU.apklphia, April 9, I81f>.
Last A' gust 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, sup[>osing that 1 should soon gel rid of it.
On the contrary, however, ] 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 gieat 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 chjid, and at night the sweat literally poured oil
me ! This was my condition when i 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 mouths 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.

rilHBSE Bitters are purely a vegetable com
JL fti/uml, and are offered lo 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
>hantly tested, not only by some of the most re
sectable families and physicians in the Stale of
South Carolina, who have furnished ample' testi
nouy as to their decided excellence, but also by the
ornprietor, who, for ten years, suffered all the gloom
incident to that stubborn and distressing disease.
They possess the peculiar excellence, denied to
most other Uitlers, of not proving injurious by con
tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious
ingredient, and, as seen from the dimetions which
accompany each bottle, may be given with entire
safety lo an infant in the month.
With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit
In the year 1838, when ihe cholera was in
Charleston, S. C., [ was compelled to send a servant
to the city. On his return, he was suddenly attack
ed with most violent puin in his bowels, so much so
as to cause apprehension that he would expire iu 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 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 resulteJ iu a happy re
covery. Since then I have been using it constantly
in my family, in cases of cholera moibus, cholera
infantum, diarrhea -and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require much larger doses
JOS. D. JENKINS.
Bluff/on, S. O., 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 duly incumbent
on me lo stale that I am now restored to perfect
health. When I commenced taking the Collelon
Billcrs it was as a Inst resort. My dcbilily from in
digestion was jo great that a cure was looked upon
as almost hopeless. After taking it regularly and
perseveringly for some lime, my strength and di
gestive powers were entirely restored. I have nevei
taken a single dose of any other medicine for more
than five years past. I can now eal the richest food
without any unpleasant feelings whatever. I have
also used Colleton Bitters freely iu my family for
I cholera infantum, cholera morbus, general debility,
| and as a tusiic after fever, with great success. As u
family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con
scientiously recommend it. .

fFIHIS remarkable invention, which has received
1 the almost universal approbation of the medical
profession of Great Britain, comprise an entirely ,
new application of Galvanism, as a remedial agent ,
by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries.
Electric and Magnetic Machines, &c. are entirely,
dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Oulvaii
ism applied without any of the objections which are
inseparable from the general mode now in use.
The Galvanic Rings have been ucsd with entire
success in all oases ?f rheumatism, acute or chronic,
applying to the head, face, or limbs ; gout, tic-dolo
reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick
headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, lits,
cramp, palpitution of the heart, apoplexy, stillness of
the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia,
nervous tremors, dizziness id the head, pains in the
chest and side, general debility, deficiency of ner
vous and physicul energy, and all nervous disorders.
In cases of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a
nervous derangement of the digestive organs, tl.ey
have been been found equally succes>ful. I heir ex
traordinary effects upon thesystem must be witnessed
to be be belived, and as a certain preventive for the
preceding complaints they are equally recommendud.
The rings are of dillerent prices, being made of all
sizes, 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.

tkhs, Nkcklaces, &.c. &c. 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 eases 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 Kings, 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 therr surprising
efficacy and permanent benefit.

tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. 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 recomende.l as a
valuable addition in the speedy cure of rheumatism,
acute or chronic; in all nervous complaints, and as a
positive remedy in cases ot pain and weakness in the
chest or back, pain in the side, in asthmatic affections,
and in weakness or oppression ot the pulmonary or
gans. In spinal complaints their effects are ot the
most decided character, and they have often been
used with complete success. They are also of the
greatest advantage in pains and weakness *>f the
breast, 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 iu constitutional weakness, as
a preventive for colds, and in all affections of the
chest generally, the Galvanio Strongthening Plas

these articles have caused them to be counterfeited
by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautions the
public against spurious imitations. He has but one

agents for Washington are?
