Among the numerous testimoninls in the possession of the proprietor, is the follow mg :— CERTIFICATE. 10th May, 1827. I, Samuel Moore, do hereby certify, that for up wards of a year, I was severely addicted with a painin tny breast, accompanied with a very had cough and shortness of breath, and every igdication (in the opin ion of a physician) of approaching consumption. Af ter passing through a course of medicine, and finding no relief, I was induced to make a trial ol Butler's V e fratable Indian Specific, an I tlie use of one and a half uttle, complet dv restored ms to lie ilth, and I have remained so ever since, being upwards of a year.

These Pit's hare been highly approved of by those who have used tbean for the above named disease,and are prescribed by several physician? ill eminence tn this and other cities. As a proof of their preeminence o ter other remedies, the proprietor inserts the following copy of a letter ilaled Baltimore City, 9th June, 1828. Dear Sir—I feel it my duly to acknowledge the great benefit I nave derived from the nseofDr.Rush’s Anti-Dyspeptic Pills. I have suffered under that dis ease, in must of its forms, for upwards of four years— have travelled much and had the advice of several eminent physicians, none of which were of much ser vice to me,'and I had lost almost every hope of ever being res'ored to health. I had lost upwards of forty pounds of flesh, and become so weak, (particularly in my legs,) that 1 found the least cxerc.se exrcssively fatiguing, f hail made use also of all the popular remedies without benefit,A having accidentally heard of vour Pills, I determniedto give them a trial, anti cipating from the use of tlidtn no better result than bad attended the use of all the other remedies I had taken—but in ibis I was happily disappointed. In a few days I found my app'litc much improved, my food rested easy on" my stomach, my sleep restored, and m the course of a few weeks I felt myself a new creature. It is now nearly four months since, and I have had no return of the disease. Some of my neigh bors who I recommended the tne Pills to, have used them with like good effect. Considering your Pills therefore an invaluable medicine, 1 canuoi withhold my feeble testimony in their favor. "Iain, sir, your obliged anjLhuinhlc servant. (Signed) 9 J.R. HARRIS. By indigestion is meant loss of appetite and great weakness, particularly uf the legs, and a wasting of the whole system. Heartburn, or an uueasy sensa tion of heat about tbe pit of tbe stomach, which is sometimes attended with nausea or sickness of the stomach and vomiting, belching up of water wliirli is generally sour, paleness of the countenance, costive ness, languor, giddiness, lowness of spirits, and disturned sleep, palpitation of the heart, flatulency, Ac. Ac. These symptoms vary in different persons,some ex periencing more of them, and some lesr, each in the order and degree of his owe. particular case. These Pills act as a powerful tonic, neutralize the arid upon tbe stamarh, give strength to the debilitated organs of digestion, restore the appetite,remove nausea at the stomach, and ultimately recover the health of the pa tient. They do not contain mercury in any form, nor do they sicken the stomach, as most purgative medi cines do, but perform the office of a sate and mild purgative, and are not surpassed by my medicine. They are therefore particularly calculated for family use. The iaventor of these pills was one of the most emiaaat practitionersof medicine in the United States, and used them successfully in hit practice for many years. They ?re not got np as a nostrum to delude the credulous, but are recommended on the basis of truth and experience. Ia order that they may become extensively useful and within the reach otall, they bre offered at the very low price of fifty cents per box, by Doet.S. R. CHILDS, | East-street.

Ill the spring of 1318, Mr Eleaxer Harris, a man in indigent circumstances, and who had labored for me occasionally for more than a year,was violently seired with an affection of the lungs, accompanied by atght dry cough, frequently unable to raise any thing for nearly half an hour, and then most commonly blood. His cough was s i severe and incessant that lie' soon became much emaciatad, his eves glassy, and his strength left him to that degree that he was wholly un able to labor, compassionating his situation, a friend I of mine and myself procured for him one bottle of An ; derson’s Cough Drops, hy taking which,in about three ; weeks, (to my astonishment) he was so far restored as to he able io perform his usual labor.

Ate. that my life was despaired of and given up as incurable by a coun cil of five physicians, but by the advice of Doct. G.

I wouM there fore recommend all those afflicted with a similar com plaint, to make use of the same remedy, as I ain per lectlv satisfied that it saved my hie. ROBERT KIDNEY. Rochester, March 11, 1828. Beware of Imposition. This valuable medicine is counterfeited.

This Iiig'dv approved and much celebreted Eye Water, which Iris been in so extensive use for more than 29 years past, and given such general satisfaction to all who have made use of it, has lately been coun terfeited by some unprincipled dealers in medicine.

He now lias a red label put around each phial of the Eye-Water, on the outside ol the envel ope, s'gnnd in his own hand writing “I. Thompson.” If purchasers will lie careful to buv no Thompson’s Eye-Water, but such as has the red label, signed as above, they will be sure of getting my genuine Eyr Water, but not otherwise.

This may certify that i have practiced medicine ns a Physician for 30 years; during this long period of ntr practice, I have made use of various kinds of Eye Water, in both acute and chronic inflammation of the Eyes, and I believe with as good success as physicians in general; after all, I find tin eye-water equal to that prepared hv Dr Isaac Thompson, of New-London, Conn.

A faithful and godly, though somewhat ec eentrie, old minister, who formerly |>r< ached in a certain town in this county, once related the following anecdote to his hearers, to illus trate a discourse which In hail been deliver ing relative to the propriety of a person’s j pulling the beam out of hi* own eye. before j attempting to extract the mote from the eye J of his neighbor.—A rustic, who had never be ( fore viewed himself in a looking-glass, !; vp pened once to lie stationed near one, and ac cidentally east his eyes upon it ; after sur veying himself for a moment in mute aston ishment, he rushed out doors, seized a club, came in, and was striding towards the g!a««, when some one interrogated him as to his intention : with eyes staring wildly and coun tenance aghast, he replied, “I'm going to kill the Devil in the glass/" “Now my good hearers,” the minister would add, “let ev ery one of you examine the mirror of his own heart, and he will find a devil there at least as large as the one which the boy saw in the glass.” The preacher might have a]- • added with much pertinency, let every tip ler examine the contents of his bottle, and he will discover as palpable a devil as he would if he should survey himself in a mirror. A Bush-hook.—Mr. John Bush, of Ver mont, was lately committed to prison for stealing a hush-hook from his neighbor. The following humorous and witty article is from the Berkshire American ; the editor of which is a great wag, and furnishes a vast deal of original facetire. He has drawn the correct representation of many a poor wight who “prints for glory and trust," while exa mining, alternately, his subscription list and a parcel of bills as long as a snipe’s, which come crowding in from all quarters, due to his rav enous and unrelenting creditors. THE SUBSCRIPTION LIST—a earce. Scene.—An editor is discovered in an el bow-chair, with a long list of subscribers be fore him, his face radiant with hope, and bis pockets filled, in anticipation, to overflowing. Enter printer’s devil with a bundle of letters, postage unpaid. The editor,glancing his eye over the contents, turns blue, for where he ex pected bank bills, he finds only the paper maker’s bill, the type-founder’s bill, and the ink manufacturer’s bill, kc. kc.— In this situation, surrounnded with me grims and confounded with horrors, he takes the printer’s devil to be a blue devil, and hav- ] ing invoked his aid in conjuring up the ghosts of delinquent subscribers, he begins to read tbeir names. Editor.—John Lumberfunction ! Ghost.—Here! $ Editor.—Dr. to daper five years—total a mount, $10. Ghost.—Intends to settle up as soon as he draws that ’ere prize in the lottery, which he is look.ng for every day. Editor.—Rodman Limberwig! Ghost.—Runway. Editor.—The devil catch him ! Pr. Devil.—1 don’t know where to find him sir. Editor.—Peter Gimrrank ! Ghost — Gone to jail. Editor.—The devil go with him ! Pr. Devil.—I’d rather not, sir. Editor.—Lemuel Love-the-bottle ! Ghost.—Lays out all bis money for grog. Editor.—[Striking his name off the list,and proceeding to the next.] Nehemiah Pilgar lick! Ghost.—Here! Editor.—Dr. to paper three years, and ad vertising sundries—total amount $9. Ghost.---Can’t pay the money; will you take any thing in the way of trade ? Editor.—Yes, any way to accommodate ; I’ll take my pay in fire-wood. Ghost.—Hasn’t any wood to spare. Any thing else in the world will be at your service. Edi tor .-—Wei I then, I will take a few bush els of grain. Ghost.—Is sorry to say he hasn’t a bushel of grain to sell. But any thing else that you j want. Editor.—I’ll take some pork. Ghost.—Unluckily the pork is all prom ised. Editor.--A side of beef, then. Ghost.— Has all his own beef to buy : but any thing else in tile world that you can men tion. Editor.—I should like a load of potatoes. Ghost.—A great part of them were "poilt by the frost, so that— Editor.—Some winter apples would not come amiss. Ghost.-—Cattle got into the orchard and cat ’em all up. But can’t you think of some thing else that you would like. Editor.—Ay,i'll take any thing in the world to get my pay, even to a load of “chips auu whetstones.” . Ghost.—Very well,he’ll take time to think about it. [Kxit.] Editor.—Ephraim Puddingstone! Ghost.—Broke to pieces long ago. [ Editor.—Luther Quintenbogus! Ghost.—Disappeared between two days. Editor.—Anthony Scurvypocket! Ghost.---Never intended to pay. The farce proceeds in this way till the ed itor, out of all patience, thrusts the •uhscrip tiou list into the fire", oversets the printers de til with his foot, and throws his inkstand at the ghosts, some of whom vanish into thin/1 air, and the rest dance a fandango at his <iis-\ appointment and mortification. 1 • w MY NATIVE HOME. I 1 was aroused from one of memory’s sw eetest droams bv the distant sound of i-ells; they were those of my native citv. had often heard them at the same hour, they spoke of wo, devotion and joy, and i scenes long gone by. In this softened state of feeling I entered the town, and heedless of the throng, 1 hurried on to the home of nty parents—reaching the house —threw myself into their aims, and the first tumult of feeling over I sat at the fire side, with my father on the one side, and my mother on the other, gazing affection ately upon me, while I talked of all I had I seen, and all I had felt. Being tired after my journey, my moth er suggested the propriety of my going to rest, and the tender hand that had often smoothed my pillow, again performed that office. I conld not help comparing my situation with the nights that I had lain ex posed to the storm, with the cold eart'.i for my bed, and I felt a lively impulse of grat itude [worth a thousand formal prayers] to the Divine Being, who had watched over and protected me through every danger, and bro’t me in safety back to my home and parents. While my mind was occupied with these reflections, my mother again entered my chamber to see if I wanted anything._ “Aie you asleep, James ?” My eyes were * shut and I did not reply. She stood over me w ith a light in her hand, gazing on my weather beaten countenance. “Mv poor wanderer she ejaculated,’’what must you have endured since I saw you, fatigue and hunger attended your steps ; but yet you have been kindly dealt with, merciful pre served. I return thee thanks thou Almigh - ty giver of every good, for thy bounteous mercy to my poor boy—O guide him to thyself!” She stopped to kiss my forehead —her warm tear fell upon my face, mv • - motion became too strong for concoalinri, and afraid that she had disturbed mv sle. ,,, she softly left the room. Those who have felt the rude storms of adversity, and the endearing kindness of a mother, will appreciate my feelings. SISTERS AND MOTHERS. These are ties, which, like the invisible strings of conscience, bind man to the world of kindly affection, and are the last things forgotten, when one leaves life. The mar ried situation may be one of pure uninter rupted felicity ; there may l*e no cloud in its whole happy horizon ; it may be ever.' sunny, and flowers spring in at every sea snn of tbe age. But even these happy ones, who are in this clime of bliss, remember long and late the claims of a sister or a mother to their best affections. In the | life of the solitary and single, those who. | are said to be doomed to an ennui offone nliess, the claims of a sister and a moth er should hold strongly, not only upon thei r feelings but duties.Those kindnesses whic h men bestow upon their offspring and their wives, and who possess each, and in whom* their best views are concentrated, in the bachelor, are given to the [almost] sacred names which constitute this heading. In loving a sis er, there is none of that earth iincss of passion which degrades the heart —in the devotion due to a mother, comes none of the selfishness of men. The fee lings inspired by both sister and mother, all are derived from sources as pure as the* divinity that inspired them. Original AnqMkf.—At a wedding a few evenings since^W this village, after the clergyman had united the happy pair^ an awful silence ensued, which becoming ra ther irksome to a young gentleman, he cried out “you need not be so unspeaka bly happy !”—‘[Buffalo Pat.] A gentleman finished an eulogium on a lady wall these words :‘All, sir, nothing beats a good wife,’ ‘I beg your pardon,’ said*, a listner, ‘a bad husband does. Sir Christopher Wren was a man of small stature. When Charles II. Camo to the hunting palace he had built for him at Newmarket, he thought the rooms too low Sir Christopher walked about them, and looking up, replied,“ Sir, and please vour Majesty, I think they are high enough.” The King squatted down to Sir Chrijno plier’s height, and creeping about in this, whimsical posture, criod, “Aye, Sir Chris topher, I think they are high enough.” Let no man think he has pleased Godl by giving that to charitable or sacred uses, which lie has purloined froru others. A Boston editor calls on the city au thorities to pass a law regulating the size of ladies’ bonnets. A man of gallant ry, says the Philadelphia Chronicle, w* nM rather have proposed to widen the streets. A man without wisdom, is like a eat without whiskers—liable to thrust his heart into a hole where he caiinoudraw bis body thro’. Silence is the best remedy for an ger—if you say nothing you will have noth ing to unsay. Old Baily Wit.—On Monday, during the trial of Mrs. Cook, the swindler! a witness slated lhat the prisoner had laid in during her imprisonment, when Charles Philips remarked “Aye that ^is what I should call a gaol-delivery.”
