A THREEFOLD VIRTUE ?By promoting
circulation, strengthening the system and
itating digestion, Dr. Wood's Sarsaparilla and
Wild Cherry Bitters will restore the most confirm^

are necessary to the restoration, the " Bitters "
will be found to possess every quality desired.
They have 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, chronic head
ache and Rheumatism. They are 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 merit#, and that they have
been successful, numerous certificates in the
hands of the proprietor, and the greatly increasing
sales fully attest. Those desirous of an agreeable
yet efficient tonic or alternative medicine, need
seek no further, for in this preparation they will
find all that is desired.

ANOTHER WONDERFUL CUKE!
Philadki.piiia, April 9, 1846.
Last August a year, 1 caught a violent cold, in
consequence of getting wet in a showor of j"81'1,
A circumstance so common gave me no immediate
concern, supposing that 1 should soon get nd pi'it.
On the contrary, however, 1 daily grew worse; a
violent cough set in, then pain m my breast and
between my shoulders. 1 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 extremejj
critical, the more so as loss of appetite, hectic
fever, and night sweats rendered mc as weak as
a child, and at night the sweat literally poured ott
me! This was my condition when I 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 bix months since I ceased usm*
the medicine, and the cur? remains perfect. J.
firmlv believe this medicine is far superior to
everv other remedy for Consumption of the Lungs.

COLLETON BITTERS.
THESE Bitters are purely a vegetabk com
pound, and are offered to the public from
principle of benevolence, under the fullest convic
tion that they will bo found a safe and sovereign
?emedy for Dyspepsia. They base been trium
phantly tested, not only by some of the most re
'peelable families and physicians in the State of |
South Carolina, who have furnished ample testi
mony n? to their decided excellence, but also by the
proprietor, who, for ten years, suffered all the gloom
Kwident 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 lie given with entire
safety to an infant in the month.
With pleasure, and for the benefit of mankind, I
send you a certificate relative to the Colleton Bit-1
terS.
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 most violent pain in his bowels; so much so
as to cause apprehension that he would expire in a
short time, if medical aid oould not be procured. 1
immediately resorted to the Colleton Bitters, by giv
ing a wine glass full at a dose. In the course of a
very short time it acted as an emetic, and throwing
him at the same time into a profuse perspiration. 1
then continued to give it in small doses, from two to |
three tea spoonsfull, which resulted in a happy re
- - j ' **?' * *-? ? ??"V ^
in my family, in cases of cholera morbus, cholera
infantum, diarrhoea and general debility, and in
every instance found it highly beneficial. Some
constitutions, however, require much larger doses
than others.
JOS. D. JEN KIN 8.
Bluff ton, S. G., 1848.
It is with feeling* or gratitude aa well aa pleasure
that I take this method of giving my testimony of
the great estimation which I entertain for your in
valuable compound. In justice not only to the me
dicine, but for the benefit of other* who may be suf
fering from'the same malady, Dyspepsia, with which
I was for years afflicted, I feel it a duty incumbent
on mo 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 doee 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 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 Galvanic Rings and Magi
nelic Fluid.
THIS remarkable invention, which haa received
the almokf universal approbation of the medical
probation of Great Britain, comprises an entirely
new application of Galvaniam, aa a remedial agent
by means of which (he ordinary Galvanic Batteriee.
Electric and Magnvtic Machines, 4tc. are entirely,1
diapenbal with, and ih?j pysterious power of Galvan
iain applied without any of the objections which are
inseparable from the general mode now in uae.
The Galvanic Riiigs Have been uc.-d with antir*
success in all caf?* ?f rheuntatiem, acuta or chronic^
applying to the hea*Vfa*> or limbe ; gout, tic-dolo.
reux, toothache, bronchitis, vertigo, nervous or sick
headar.hr, indigestion, paralysis, palsy, epilepsy, fits,
cramp, palpitation of the heart, apoplexy, atitfneaa of
the joints, spinal complaints, lumbago, neuralgia,
nervous tremo'rs, dizziness of the head, pains in the
cheat and aide, general debility, deficiency of ner
vous and phyalcal energy, and all nervous disorders.
In case;; of confirmed dyspepsia, which is simply a
nervous derangement of the digestive organs, tLey
have been been found e^uaHy successful. Their exf
tiaoidinary effects upon theayatem must be witnease<|
to. be be belived, and aa a certain preventive for the
preceding complaint* they are equally recommended.
The rings are of different prices, being made of all
sizes, and of varipua ornamental patterns, and ean
be worn by the moat delicate female without the
slightest inconvenience. In fact, the sensation is ra
her agreeable than otherwise.
Tut Galvanic Bblts, Bracelets, Bands, Gar
uas, Nixklaies, 4u:. &c These articles are
adapted to the waist, arms,, wrists, limbs, ankles, or
any part of the body with porfect convenience. The
Galvanic Necklaces are u*qd with greater benefit l*
cobfc^ 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 fits, and similar complaints. <
Christie's Magnetic Fluid is used in connexion
with the Galvanic Kings, and all their modifications.
This composition haa been pronounced by the
French Chemists to be one of the most extraordi
nary discoveries of modern science. Full explana
tion* and directions accompany it. The combined
inventions are in every way perfectly harmless; they
are at prices within rcach of all, and the discoveiot
only requests a fair trial, as a test of their surprising
efficacy and |>ertnanent benefit.
CuRiHTib'u Galvanic Strengthening Plas
ters.?These articles form auother 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, bat having the advantage of more local ap
plication* 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-'
gans. In spinal complaints their effects are of the
most decided character, and they have often been
used with complete auccesa. They are abo of the
greatest advantage in pains and weakness of the
breast, and are highly recommended for many of
those complaints to which females are especially li
able. As an efFsctual means for strengthening the
system when debilitated with disease and other cau
ses, as a certain aid in constitutional weakness, as
chest generally, the Galvanic Strengthening Plas
ters will be found of great and permanent advan
tage.
(?/* CAUTION. The celebrity and success ol
these article* have caused them to be counterfeited
by unprincipled persona. Dr. Christie cautions the
public against apunous imitations. lie haa but one
authorized agency in each city of the Union, where
the genuine article* can be procured. The only
