Last August a year, I caught a violent cold, in consequence of getting wet in a shower ol ram A circumstance so common gave me no immediate concern, supposing that I should soon get rid ol 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 geeat 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, hcctic fever, and night sweats rendered me as weak as a child, and at night the sweat literally poured oH me ! This was my condition vhen 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 Lungs. J. J.

Acting directly upon the LUNGS, and arresting their decay, it not only soothes and quiets at once the distress and pain attendant upon this hereto fore regarded fatal disease, but restores the lungs and their sympathising organs, to natural ami heal thy action.

Any persons, therefore, residing distant from this city, who may wish to avail themselves of the remedy, can do so by ad dressing him through the mail, pout paid. Two dollars accompanying an order, will entitle a per son to one whole and one third iiackage. LOUIS FONTAIN. COLLETON BITTERS HESE Bitters lire purely a vegetable com JL pound, and are offered to the public from principle of Iwnevolence, under the fuiloHi convic joii that they will be louud a safe and sovereign emedy for Dyspepxin. They have l?een trium ihantly tested, not only by some of the most re sectable families and physicians in the State of tooth Carolina, who have furnished ample testi mony as to their decided excellence, but also by the proprietor, who, for ten years, n uttered all the gloom ? ncident 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, 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 Bend a servani 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 medical aid could not be procured. 1 immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters by giv ing a wine glass full at a dose. In the courso of a very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing him at the Mime time into a profuse perspiration. I then continued to give it in small doses, from two to three tea spoomfull, which resulted in a happy re covery. Since then I have been using it constantly in my family, in case* of cholera moibus, cholera infantum, diarrhwa and general debility, and in every instance found it highly beneficial. Some constitutions, however, require much larger dosc^ tuan outers. JOS. D. JENKINS. Blufflon, S. C? 184C. ' It is with feelings of gratitude as well as pleasure that I take tliis 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 afllicted, 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 io 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 Bitters freely in my family fjr S oholeru infantum, cholera morbus, general debility, and as a tonic after fever, with great suocess. As u I family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con scientiously recommend it. A. M. R. St. John's ColbIon, S, C., December, 1845. For sale by the only Agent for the District of Columbia, B.

Old Frames regilt. may 14 tt Dr. Christie's Galvanic Rings and Mag netic Fluid. remarkable invention, which has received 1 the almost universal approbation of the medicat pr.ifrK.-ion of Great Britain, comprises an entirely new application of Galvanism, as a remedial agem by means of which the ordinary Galvauic Batteries. Electric and Magnetic Machines, &c. are entirely, dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Galvan ism applied without any of the objections which are inseparable from the general mode now in use. The Galvanic Ring* have been ue.-d with entire success in all aases mi 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, (its, cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stillness ol the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia, nervous tremors, dizziness of the head, pains in the chest anJ 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 diuestive organs, tl.ev have been been found equally successful. Their ex traordinary effects upon the system must lie witnessed to he l>e helived, and as a certain preventive for the preceding complaints they are equally recommended. The rings are of different prices, being made of nil sizes, and of various ornamental patterns, and can li? worn by the most delicate f inale without the slightest inconvenience. In fact, the sensatiou is ra her agreeable than otherwise. Tiik Galvanic Hki.tr, Bkacklkts, Banks,Gah tkiis, Neck lacks, &c. <Hcc. These articles u:e adapted to the waist, arms, wrists, limbs, ankles, or any part of the body with perfect convenience. The Galvanic Necklaces are used with greater benelit in cases of bronchitis or affections of the throat gener ally ; also, in cases of nervous deafness; and with almost uniform success as a preventive for apoplexy, 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 priccs within reach of all, arid the discoverer only requests a fair trial, as a test of their surprising eflictffcy and permanent benefit. Christie's Galvanic Sthrnothkninb Plah tkhs.?These articles form another valuable applica 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 plii ution* 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< gins. In spinal complaints their effects are of th< most decided character, and they have often beer used with complete success. They are also of th< greatest advantage in pains and weakness of the breast, and are highly recommended tor many ol 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 for colds, and in all affections of the chest generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Plas ters will be found of great and permauent advan tage. nT/jf* UAU'l ION' <wJAhrit?i diQfvpflff oj uiucies have caused them to be counterfeited by unprincipled persons.
