Scrofula, palpitation of the heart, c ironic Head
ache and Rheumatism. They arc indeed a happy
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 hav#

seek no further, for in this preparation they will

ANOTHER wonderful CUBE.'
PmnnKLPHiA, April 9, 1846.
Last August a year, I caught a violent cold, in
consoquence of getting wet in a shower of rain.
A circumstance so common gave me no immediate
concern, supposing that I should soon get rid ot it.
On the contrary, however, 1 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 ot purulent mat
ter in my lungs. 1 became greatly alarmed ; and
my friends consider* d 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
me ! This was my condition vhen 1 commenced
using 44 Thomson's Compound Syrup of Tar and
Wood Naphtha." I procured one bottle, and ex
perienced so much benefit that 1 resolved to con
tinue it: It is now six mouths since I ceased using
the medicine, and the cute remains perfect. I
firmly believe this medicine is far superior to
every other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs.

COLLETON BITTERS
npiIESE Bitteis are purely ct vegetable com
i pounds and are offered to the public from
principle of henovolence, under the fullest convic
tion that they will be found a safe and sovereign
?emedy for Dyspepsia. They have been trium
jhaully testedi not only by some of the most re
.pectable families and physicians in the State of
South Carolina, who have furnished ample testi
?nony as to their decided excellence, hut 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 to
most other Bitters, of not proving injurious by con
tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious
1 ingredient, and, as seen from the directions which
I accompany each bottle, may l?e given with entire
I safety to au infant in the month.
With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bil
I ters. ...
In the year 1838, when the cholera was in
Charleston, S. C., I was compelled to send a servant
j to the city. On his return, lie wassuJdenly attack
ed with most violent pain in his bowels, so much so
as to cause apprehension that he would expire in ?
short time, if medical aid could not foe procured. I
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
ing a wine gla-s full at a dose. In the course of a
j very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing
him at the same time into a profuse per.-piration. I
| then continued to give it in small doses, from two to
three tea spoonsful), which resulted in a happy re
I covery. Siuce then 1 have been using it constantly
in my family, in cases of cholera moi bus,-cholera
infantum, diarrhwa and general debility, and in
every found it Bulur
constitutions,' however, require much larger doses
an 0,hCI8' .COS. D. JENKINS
Blujfton, S. 6'., 1846.
It is with feelings of gratitude as well as pleasure
that I take this method of giving my testimony ot
i the great estimation which 1 entertain for 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 incuml*nt
on me to state that I am now lestored to perfect
health. When 1 commenced taking the Colleton
Bitters it was as a last resort. My debility from in
digestion wbb jo great that a cure was looked upon
as almost hopeless. After taking it regularly and
perseveringly for some time, my strength and i i
oestive 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 lor
cholera i rifimtum, 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.

Dr. Christie's Qahanic Rings and Mag
netic Fluid.
'pHlS remarkable invention, which hat received
. almo* universal approbation of the medical
profession of Great Britain, tomprueii an entirely
new application of Galvanism, as a remedial ai?ent
by means of which the ordinary Galvanic Batteries
Electric and Magnetic Machines, Ac. are entirely,
dupensed with, and the mysterious power of Galvan
ism applied without any of the abjections which arc
inseparable from the general mode now in use.
The Galvanic Rings have been uesd with entire
success in all aaaes mi rheumatism, acute or c hronic
applying to the bead, face, or limhu ; gout, tic-dolo
reux toothache, bronchitie, vertigo, nervous or sick
headache, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits
cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stiffness o't
the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia
nervous trernora, dizziness of the head, pain# in the
rhe*t and side, general debility, deficiency of ner
vous and physical energy, and all nervous disorders.
In cases ot confirmed dysfiepsia, which is simply a
nervous derangement of the digestive organs, tl.e\
have been been found equally successful. Their ex
traordinary effects upon the system must he witnessed
to be he belived, and ax a certain preventive for the
pwcedmg complaints they are equally recommended.
I he rings are of dtflerent prices, being made of alt
sues, and of various ornamental patterns, and can
H worn by the most delicate female without the
?fighte*t Inconvenience. In fact, the sensation is ra
her agreeable than otherwise.
The Galvasic Bslth,Brackets, Bands, Gar
ters Nec.iacks, &c. &c. These articles are
adapted to the waist, arms, wrists, limits, ankles, 01
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
any ; also, in cases of nervous deafness; and with
almost uniform success as a preventive for appoplexy
epileptic tits, and similar compluints.
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion
with the Galvanic Kings, and all'their modifications,
this composition has been pronounced by the
renc,h Chemists to be one of the most extraordi.
nary discoveries of modern science. Full explana
lions 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.
CiinisTik's Galvanic Strengthf. vino Pias
ters.?These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. They
are ai. important adjunct to the genuine Galvanic
Kings ami their .Modifications, acting upon the samp
principle, but having the advantage of more local ap
plication- They are confidently recomeuded 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 hack, 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, ami ihey have often been
used with complete success. They are also of the
greatest advantage in pains and weakness ef the
breast, and are highly recommended for many ot
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 aflections of 'the
chest generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Plas
ters will be lound of great and permanent advan
?* -X...
O CAUTION. The celebrity and success ol
these articles have causedvthem to be counterfeited
by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautious tht
