They hpve 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, clironic Head

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 certificated in the

sales fully attest. Those desirous of an agreeable

seek no further, for in this preparation they will

Philahklfhi a, April 9, 184G.
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 of it.
On the contrary, however, I daily grew worse; a
violent cough set in, Jhen 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 extremel)
critical, the more so as loss of appetite, hectic
fever, and night sweats rendered me as weak at
a child, and at night the sweat literally poured, of!
me! This was my condition when 1 commenced
using ri 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. ]
firmly believe this medicine is far superior tc
every other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs

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
emedy for Dyptpria. They have been trium
ihantly tested, not only by some of the most re
portable families and physicians in the State of
South Carolina, who have furnished ample teati
?rtouy. 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 tp
tnost other QiUers, of not pruving injurious by con
tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious
ingredient, and, as seen from the directions which
accompany each bottle, may he given with entire
safety to an infant in the mwnth.
With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit
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 moat violent pain in his bowels, so much so
as to cause apprehension that he would expire tn a
short time, if medical aid could not he procured. 1
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
ing a Wide*glass full at a dose. In the course of a
very short time it acted aa 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 arhappy re
covery. Since then I have been using it constantly
in my family, in cases of cholera mot bus, cholera
infantum, diarrhoea and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require much larger do*e?i
than others.
Bluff!on, 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 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 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 for
cholera infantum, cholera morbut, general debility,
and as a tonic after fever, with great success. As a
family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con
scientiously recommcnd it.

Dr. Christie's Gahumic Ririys and Mag
netic Fluid.
THIS remarkable invention, which has receive'
the almost universal approbation of the mediea
profession of Great Britain, comprint* an entirely
new application of Galyaqifia, M a remedial agent
by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries,
Electric and Magnetic Machines, See. 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 uead with entire
success in all eases ef 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, 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 nide, general debility, deficiency of ner
vous and physical energy, and all nervous disorders.
In oases of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a
nervous derangement of the digestive organs, tLey
have been been found equally successful. Their ex
traordinary effects upon the system must be witnessed
to be he belived, and as a certain preventive for the
preceding complaints they are equally recommended.
The rings are of different prices, being made of all
J 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. 1
The Galvanic Belts,Binc*lets, B a Nns, Gah
txr*, Neck lacks, Ac. <fcc.?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 nervouB 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 liecn pronounced by the
French Chemists to be ohe of the most extraordi.
nary discoveries of modem science. FuH 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!
tehs.?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
plication* They are confidently recomended as a
valuable addition in the speedy cure of Theumatism,
acute or chronic; in all nervous complaints, and as a
positivf remedy in caw*.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 th<
most decided character, and they have often beer
used with complete success. They are also of th<
greatest advantage in pains and weakness ef the
breast, and are highly recommended for 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 permanent advan
(?j* CAUTION. The celebrity and success o
these articles have caused them to be counterfeited
by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautions th<
public against spurious imitations. He has but om
