ANOTHER WONDERFUL CUBE!
Phiia-DKLPhia, April 9, 1846.
Last August a yoar, 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, then pain in my breast and
between my shoulders. I now Buffered great op
pression from the great secretion of purulent mut
ter in my lungs. 1 became greatly alarmed ; and
my friends considered my situation extremely
critical, the more so as loss ol 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 when I commenced
using " Thomson's Compound Syrup ol Tar ai)d
Wood Naphtha." 1 procured one bottle, and ex
perienced so much benefit that I resolved to con
tinue it. It is now six months since 1 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.

COLLETON BITTERS
HESE Bitters nre pur fly a vegetable com
pound, and are offered lo the public from
principle of benevolence, under the fullest convic
tion that they will be found a sale and sovereign
emedy for Dyapeptiu. They have been trium
ihantly tested, not only by some of the most re
sectable families and physicians in the Stale of
South Carolina, who have furnished ample testi
mony 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 to
most, other Bitters, of not proving injurious by con
tinued use. They contain not a single deleterious
ingredient, and, as seen from (he directions which
accompany each bottle, may be given with entire
safely to an intant in the month.
With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I
send you a certificate relativo to the Colleton Bit
ters.
In the year 1838, when the choleea was in
Charleston, S. C., 1 was compelled lo send a servant
to the city. On his return, he wan suddenly attack
ed with most violent pain in his bowels, so much so
as to cause apprehension that he would expire in a
abort time, if medical aid could not lie procured. 1
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
ing a wine glass full at a dose. In the course ol a
very short time it acted as an emelic, and throwing
him at the same time into a proline perspiration. 1
then continued lo give ii in small dosei, from turn to
three tea spoonsfull, which resulted in a happy re
covery. Since then 1 have been using it ennotahily
in my family, in cases of cholera mot bus, cholera
infantum, diairluF.a and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require much larger doses
JOB. P. JENKINS.
Bhffton, S. C., 1840.
It is with feeling3 of gratitude as well as pleasure
that I take this method'of giving my testimony ot
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 aHlicted, 1 feel it a duly 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 jo 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 lor
cholera infantum, cholera morhus, general debility,
and as a tonic after fever, with great success. A* a
family medicine I deem it invaluable, and do con
scientiously recommend it. ,

Dr. Christie's Galvanic. Rhujs and Mag
netic Fluid.
THIS remarkable invention, which has received
the almost universal it|>|>rr>l?ati?m of the medical
profession of Great RriUin, comprises art entirely
new application of Galvanism, aa a remedial aifent
liy means of which the ordinary (aalvunic Batteries
Electric and Magnetic Machines, Ac. are entirely,
dispensed with, and the mysterious power of Calvan
ism applied vVitiiout any of the objections which are
in sparable from the general mode now in use.
The Calvanic Rings have been iiesd with entire
success in all ?ase* ?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, paUy, epilepsy, tits,
crump, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, stiffness of
the joinUi, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia,
nervous tremors, dizziness of the hend, pains in the
chest and 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 digestive organs, tl.ey
have l>een l?een found equally successful. Their ex
traordinary eflect* Upon the system must he witnessed
to t*e lie lielived, and as a certain preventive for the
preceding complaint* they are equally recommended.
The rings.are of different prices, being made of all
sizes, and of various ornamental patterns, and ean
lie worn by the most delicate female without the
slightest inconvenience. In fact, the sensation is ra
her agreeable than otherwise.
The (ialvanic Bki.ts, Bhaceletb, Bands,Oar
TKHS, Nick lacks, Ac. Ac. 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 nervous deafness; and with
almost uniform success as a preventive for appoplexy,
epileptic, lits, 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 lie 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 lair trial, as a test of their surprising
efficacy and permanent benefit.
Ciuiistik's (ialvanic Sthkngthenino Pi.as
tehs.?These articles form another valuable applica
tion of the mysterious influence of Galvanism. They
are an important adjunct to the genuine Calvanic
Rings niid their twodificalions,acting upon the same
principle, hu> having the advantage of more local ap
plication' They are confidently recomeiided an a
valuable addition iu the speedy cure of rheumatism,
acute of chronic ; iu all nervous complaints, and as a
positive remedy in cases of pain and weakness in the
cheat or back, pain iu the side, iu asthmatic affections,
and iu weakness or oppression of the pulmonary or
gans. In spinal complaints their effects are of the
most decided character, and they have often lieen
used with complete success. They are also of the
greatest ail vantage in pains and weakness sf the
breast, and are highly recommended for many of
thoge complaints to which females are especially li
able. As an effectual means for strengthening the
sylem when debilitated with disease and other cau
?irs, as a certain aid ui constitutional weakness, as
a preventive tor colds, and in all atiections of the
chest generally, the (ialvanic Strengthening Plas
ters will be found of great and permanent advan
tage.
(p* CAUTION. The celebrity and success of
ibsw Rriielee have caused them to fee counterfeited
by unprincipled persons. Dr. Christie cautions the
public against spurious imitations. He has but one
authorized agency in each city of the Union, where
the genuine articles c&n lie procured. The only
agents for Washington are?
