IIERRICK, Pennsylvania Avenue, between 3d and june 12-0ai 4 l-'2 streets. A CARD. Abolition.?fontaine h. pettis, Counsellor at Law, late of Virginia, having lo cated himself in the city of New York for eight year* last pa>4, respectfully lender* his acknowledgment* to hi* Iriends in the South, for their confidence and j?t ronage in various matters of business, and solicits their continuance. He has had much experience, both in this State and that of Pennsylvania, in causing fugi tive slaves to be secured, and will continue to effect such objects whenever cajled upon. His plans are so well matured, by having at his command the most efficient aid, located at different points, and successfully har monizing, that he cannot but flatter himself that he will have more complete success in future than hereto fore?indeed, if clothed with full authority, he can cause any fugitive slave to be secured, who may be in the United Stales, north of Mason and Dixon's line. All the statutory enactments of this State on this sub ject, have been pronounced unconttitutional by the highest tribunals. It will therefore be seen that the provision made in the comtitution on this subject, are paramount to all other enactments, whether Stale or Federal. There are thousand* of fugitive slaves in this city and its environs, and they continue to mul tiply rapidly. These being, at best, very unpopular cases in this quarter, (he having the Abolitionists, the flesh, and thedcr:.l, to contend with,) it will lie necessary for those wishing to secure his services, to forward him a power of attorney, duly executed, and minutely de scriptive of the fugitive, and also a fee of $20, to defray preliminary and contingent expenses. His universal charge for securing such slave is $100, and all reason able expenses. > Mr. Pettis will promptly and fai:)\fully attend to any business confided to him, touching his profession.

GIBSON, C. Q. S. july 3?3tawt'J5Sept HAMPTON'S VEGETABLE TINCTURE. HIOHLY IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. THE most safe and certain remedy ever It-town to the world lor various chronic dise&sea, after ihey have reached a state, and assumed a character, hither to considered desperate and incurable. Scrotals, Kings-evil, attended with swellings and ulcers; sore eyes and loss of sight, to a frightful ex tent, have been cured. Females pining away by rea son of deranged secretions, broken circulation, and obstructed menses, (monthly courses,) even when at tended by spasms or fits, have been readily relieved. Dyspepsia yields without a struggle to iu mild yet powerful action on the stomach. In Catarrh, or cough, Kheumatism, Fistula, Gonorrhea, and Syphil lia, it never fails to cure, as we have fVilly proved. It is also efficacious in Parulyais, Dropsy, Asthma, Com plaints of the Breaat, Piles, Worms, Lumbago, Stric ture, Diarthuia, and Flux; usually effecting a cure? always giving relief. This tincture tends directly to excite a healthy ac tion in the stomach, liver, lungs, spine and kidney*? to purify the blood and other fluids, by expelling every particle of morbid matter from the ?ystein, and there fore never fails (with its accompaniments) to prove a valuable remedy for the diseases for which calomel has been invariably used. Old sores and ulcer*, or any chronic affection ; and for the calomel disease, it is an infallible remedy. This remedy is perfectly vegetable, mild, agreeable and safe for persons of any age, either sex, or in any condition; acknowledged by those who have tried it to be the best known family medicine. The justly celebrated tincture creates a craving ap petite, and the patient is left at liberty to indulge it,? indeed he U particularly requested to do so. The use of this medicine will changu the complexion from a pallid to a line blooming one. After Uring this Tinc ture for six weeks, a person of any age may eat any ' thing that a child of ten year* of age, in full health, j could eat, without the least inconvenience. Persons afflicted with any of the complaints above enumerated, are earnestly entreated not to let thp pre judice commonly entertained against a new remedy, prevent them from realizing the benefits to be derived froin.it* use. A single bottle, which may be had for ?1 50, will produce a conviction of its superior effica cy in the mind of the most skeptical.

ASK, INQ.UIRE?Ask th*se who knew.?Those only who know by trial or immediate observation, can form any idea of the effects, of the perfect relief, of the almost charm-like cures effected in cases of the Piles, Rheumatism, all Swellings, and all external Pains, no matter how severe, by the use of Hay's Li niment. Find one who has used it that will not laud it to (lie above ail things ever used, and you will find ?what cannot lie found. For the relief of suffering human beings who may be afflicted. I l>eg you to ask?ask of those who know. Gentlemen know of cases unconquerable by all other remedies or physicians, though tried foi many years, that have been cured by the use of the genuine HAY'S LINIMENT. Thousands of persons know similar cures. We appeal to their sense of justice? their human feelings. It is but a duty you owe to your suffering fellow be ings to let this great remedy be known. Speak of it then to all your friends. This will save much pain where the newspapers are not read, or where readeis are incredulous, because so many worthless articles arc advertised for the same purpose. To buyers we say, if all who have used it do not say it is beyond all praise, then do no' take it. The proprietor will not allow this article to be paid for unless it cures, when all the directions are fully followed. Will any one suffering refuse now to try it 1 If he does, he ought to be pitied more for his obstinacy than his suffering. Mi. Hays would never consent to offer this article, were he not compelled by'his sense of moral?or reli gious.duty?to do all in his power for the victims of distress and misery. For this purpose he would sooner devote a fortune, than secure a dollar for any worth less article. LOOK OUT.?Some swindlers have counterfeited this article, ?nd put it up with various devices. Do not be imposed upon. One thing only will protect you?it is the name of COMSTOCK. & CO. that name must lie always on the wrapper, or you are cheated. Do not forget it. Take this direction with you, and (est by that, or never buy ; for it is impossible for any other to be true or genuine. SOLOMON HAYS. Sold by COMSTOCK &. CO. 2 Fletcher street, N. York. LOOK OUT!! " Caution" tl the I'a rent of Safety. An attack of the " Piles" ,may be positively pre vented tiy using (when the premonitory symptoms are felt) the celebrated HAYS' LINIMENT. There are more than one hundred |ieople in this city, and in the United States an immense number, who have suf fered beyond endurance by this dreadful complaint, who keep themselves wholly free from nttacks liy ap plying this Liniment when they feel any symptom* oi ics approach : of this there is the most perfect proof. nr? one genuine without the name of Comstock Si Co., written on the Mrappers. SOLOMON HAYS. Fi.oreni k, Ala, Sept. 28th, 1838. A gentleman of the highest standing in this town, who has been dreadfully afflicted with the Blind Piles for the last "26 year*, called upon mo and freely con fessed to me his situation. After describing the seve rity of the complaint, he remarked that he kad not been so well for,20 years [>ast as he was at that moment. He had used one bottle only of Hay's Liniment. To use hi* own words, he said " the whole human family, who weiethus afflicted, ought to l>c made acquainted with this medicine." Signed, R. Lr BLISS. Mr*. MAN WARING, of Jamaica, L.
