Agency of the NewYork
popularly known for many years. This is the
largest and oldest Tea Establisinent in America.?
The public have had full proof of their integrity and
responsibility. But such has been the great and
preasing demand for .their TEAS of late, that they
have been obliged to enlarge, to a great extent,tneir
two principal establishments in New York, viz:
They moreover possess facilities, in relation to the
Tea Trade, in a very abundant degree, ami doubt
less, superior to any other Tea Concern in America.
Their scrupulous regard to all principles that tend
to elevate the character of a large house, is well un
derstood, and has already secured them a connec
tion, probably, larger than all other Tea Establish
ments united, and they consequently are determined
to sell Teas purer, more fragrant, and perfect for
the prices, in the aggregate, than any house in the
world?China excepted.
They most zealously invite the attention of the in
habitants of WASHINGTON, D. C? to their
Agency, where the following assortments are always
on hand; and they feel no hevitation in stating that
wherever a single trial is made, a very decided pre
ference is given to the celebrated Teas of the CAN

Strengthening Plaster.
IN all cases where it is thought advisable to keep
up permanent stimulant impression on or near
the organ diseased, these plasters will be found high
ly valuable. In fact, all the benefit that can accrue
from a continuous counter-irritant will lie produced
in the most efficient manner by them. As in Rheu
matism, Lumbago, Gout, Enlargement of the Joints,
Chronic Disease of the Liver, Spleen, Lungs, or

where warming or strengthening planters are bene

tive Pills is a medicine which not only cures
but prevents disease, capable of great results, anil
r(|iially calculated to be safely used for apparently
small ones. We nil know how dreadful and dan
gerous a seated bilious disorder is, and we ore also
well aware of the seeming insignificance of its liMt
warnings or incipiency. The individual suffering
from slight pains in his chest, back, or stomach, or
from occasional nausea, dull headache, extreme ner
vousness, sleeplessness, trilling prevarication of ap
petite, und other disagreeable visitations so c 'mmon-1
ly and foolishly looked upon as unimportant, may
not know that these symptoms, treated so contemp
tuously, are the consequences of a diseased state of
the liver, which if not remedied, will lend either to
speedy death.or a l'>ng tiain of unbearable ills which
are known by the following names : Hypochondria,
mania, dizziness, slow levers, epilepsy, asthma,
dropsy, rheumatism, chlornsis, convulsions, nausea,
nervousness, ciapms, gout, pleurisy, jaundice, irrita
bility, and violence, dyspepsia, hysterics, scurvy,foul
stomach, dry coughs, glandular affections, colds, lin
gering fore throats, various disorganizations of the
grtat intehtinc, strictures and spasmodic complaints
internally, eruptions, shortness of breath, heartburn,
neuralgia, vital inflammation, flatulence, gastric fe
vers, & c.
Sometimes, loo, there ensues an irregular action
of the lieait. Take lhe:-;e pills and suffer no more,
