Prospectus of the new library

of Franci* J. Troubat, eaq., of Philadelphia;
Hon. Kllia Lewis, of Lancaster; and Wil*on MeCandleaa,
eaq., of Pittsburgh.
Thi* work contain* the best production* of English
law author*, without regard to priority of claim
on the part of any American publisher. Such book*
are now notoriously too dear. The reason is, that
a* fast as the* appear, they become monopolies in
the hand* of bookseller* in the Atlantic citie*. Under
the plea of right, acquired by the addition of
note* of American decisions, the latter claim an undivided
title to those work*, and set a burdensome
price on them. The publisher* of the work no*
offered to the profession throughout the Union, will
not respect such title*, but will reprint the standard
British law books as that as they emanate from the
London market. Should new editions of the works
of such writers as Staikie. the Chittvs. StcDhen.
and Archbold, appear, they ahall alao 'be inc ludedi
and digest* of equity arid law deciaiona?worki
which hare been studiously kept out of the paw
Library pubtiahed at Philadelphia?ahall have a
place in tne proposed new one, together with every
new valuable English treatise on chancery or common
law.

BECKWITH'S ANTI-DYSPEPTIC PILLS r
have been moat successfully employed in alfnoat
every variety of functional disorder of the stomach, i
bowels, liver, and spleen; such as heartburn, acid P
eructations, nausea, headache, pain and distension *
of the stomach and bowels, incipient diarrhoea, col- J
ic, jaundice, flatulency, habitual coativeness, loss of
appetite, sick headache, tea-aiclmesa, Ac., Ac. They
are a safe and comfortable aperient for females du- 1
ring pregnancy and subsequent confidement; relieving
sickness at the stomach, headache, heartburn and ma
ny of the incidental nervous affections. Literary men,
students, and most other persons of sedentary hab- 0
its, find them very convenient. Those who indulge
too freely in the pleasures of the table find speedy ?
relief from the sense of oppression and distension
which follow, by taking the pills. As a dinner pill, f
they are invaluable. Those who are drinking mineral
waters, and particularly those from southern '
climates, ague and fever districts, will find them a d
valuable adjunct. Those who are exposed to the *
vicissitudes of weather on voyages or journeys, can J
take them at all times with perfect safety. In full
doses they are a highly efficacious and safe antibilious
medicine. Tney seldom or never produce
sickness at the stomach or griping.
There have been many imitations and worthless ?
counterfeits of these pills put in circulation by unprincipled
and ignorant persona?the directions. *

The extraordinary success of this medicine in the l'
curse of pulmonary diseases, warrants the American

ea and incurable. The Hungarian Balsam has c
1 cured, and will cure, the most desperate of cases.
It is no quack nostrum, but a standard English *
' medicine, of known and established ellicar v.
Every family in the United States should be supi
plied with Bucnan's Hungarian Balsam of Life, not P
onlv to counteract the consumptive tendencies of
, the'dimate, but to be used as a preventive medicine
, in all cases of Colds, Coughs, Spitting of Blood,
' Pain in the Side and Chest, Irritation and Soreness

DR. DYOTT'S ANTI-BILIOUS PILLS.
AS a family medicine, a mild and gentle purgative,
ana purifier of the blood. The general
use of these celebrated pills throughout the United
States for these forty years past, and the strong recommendations
they have acquired from all classes
of our fellow-citizens, places them in a much more
elevated situation in public estimation, than any
other remedy which has heretofore been introduced.
The following are among the many diseases for
i which Dr. Dyott's celebrated pills are so deservedly
I distinguished for curing. By their counteracting
i properties in removing the bile from the stomach,
they prevent and cure the bilious fever; chills, or
ague and fever; spring and fall fevers; yellow fever;
I bilious cholic; pleurisy; dysentery; worms; bilious
r VnmitiniP' oirlr anil fnnl olnmonk ?
1 By cleansing the bowels and stomach from all im8unties,
they restore the loss of appetite, remove f
atulency, cure the headache, habitual costiveness,
colds, coughs, asthma, epileptic fits, hypochondria, tj
hysterical complaints, stranguary, gravel, 4c. j,
By a general and copious use, they will be found 0
very beneficial in curing the rheumatism and gout, u
I lumbago or pains in the back. tj
All impurities in the blood yield to their happy n
i effects, whether proceeding from constitutional ail- 0
i ment, or from indiscreet intemperance. p
i These celebrated pills have been used to very
| great advantage in curing the dyspepsia, or indigesi
tion, bronchitis, liver complaint, Ac.
i They are an infallible medicine for female com ti
t plaints generally , and especially for removing those n
. obstructions which are the source of their ailments t,
, at certain periods; they possess the eminent advan- p
tage over most other purgatives, that, while they 0
, operate gently, they produce neither costiveness, de- 0
bility, or too great excitement. p
Whenever there is a predisposition to receive (,
disease from marsh effluvia, ar from a too copious 0
use of srdent spirits, or from a vitiated state of the
bile, these pills will assuredly counteract it. n
TTiev are highly recommended to travellers by
sea or land, ana maybe made use of with safety 0
without change of diet, and in situations where no a
exercise can be used. They will be found particu- tj
' lsrly valuable for preventing diseases incidental to
1 hot climates; they deterge and cleanse viscid humors,
' open obstructions, and promote the secretion of
' good bile, operate aa an easy cathartic, as a power- .
ful diuretic, and aa a diaphoretic. |
Dr. Dvott, under the strong conviction of the J
power or his pills to relieve the afflicted, recommends
the use of them to thoee who are in health
> as well aa the afflicted, at leace once a fortnight, duathe
spring and summer months, in which he
assured those who attend to his advice will
find the benefit they seek.
