THE TRUTH SOMETIMES NOT FOUND OUT\ UNTIL TOO LATE. 1 SUCH is often the case in regard to persons faking medicine. They are induced by plausible rea soning, false representation and doctrines, to employ medicines that, so far from being adapted to their disease or 6ickness, absolutely increase the symp toms, destroy the constitution, rack the whole system, and bring on a gradual decline, terminating in death ; previous to the fatal termination, however (but unfortunately too late,) the truth is found out that the pills, mixtures, &c. they have been taking were composed of the most powerful and dangerous ingredients, prepared too by persons knowing nothing of disease or the nature of the medicines they recom mend, depending altogether upon the " general doc trine of such imposters," that their medicines will '? kill or cure." Be advised, then, if you find it ne cessary to take some medicine for purifying the blood and cleansing the bowels, to take nothing but Dr. Leidy's justly and deservedly celebrted SaRSAPA R1LLA BLOUD PILLS, trie only pills containing Sarsaparilla in the their composition?the safest and best as well as the most effectual that can be taken. Old and young, at all times, without regard to weather, may take them without fear of taking cold, and without lestraint from occupation or usual course ? urUpwards of 1,000 certificates have been published, vanous times, of llie.r efficacy. More than 100,000 boxes have been sold in Philadelphia in twelve months. These facts go to prove their value, or so many never would be sold in so short a tunc, in a place where they are manufactured; this, ho.v ever, arises in part from the fact that the manufac turer of them (Dr. Leidy) is well known at home as a regular physician and apothecary, knowing the true nature of d.seascs and ot the medicines he recom mends, attested by the most celebrated physicians, among whom are Dr. Nathaniel Chapman Dr. Wm. Gibson Dr. W L. Horner, Dr. Samuel Jackson, Dr. Kobert Hare, Dr. f. S. Physic, Dr. T. C. James, Dr. W. P. Dewees, Dr. J. Redman Coxe, Rev. W H Delancy, Robert Adrian, LLD., &c. &e. Orders for Dr. Leidy's BLOOD PILLS arc dailv received from the Norih, South, East, and West, and the most flattering accounts, irom every direction of their unparalleled success. A *inglc box (25 cents) may save as many dollars, if taken in time, instead of the dangerous medicine' now forced on the pub lic, and by taking which persons so often find it ne cessary at last to take Dr. Leidy's Blood Pills to counteract their injurious consequences. They are prepared only, and sold Wholesale and ReUl, at Dr. Leidy's Health Emporium, No. 191 North Second street, below Vine street, Philadelphia' And by CHARLES STOTT, apr 25 3m Agent for the District.

DYOTT'S ANTI-BILIOUS PILLS A Sa family medicine, a mild,gentle purgative, and pu rifierof the blood?tho general use of these celebra ted Pills throughout the United States for 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 he-etofore been introduced. The fol lowing are among the many diseases for which Dr. Dyott's celebrated pills are so deservedly distinguish ed for curing. By their counteracting properties in re moving the bile from the Stomach, they prevent and cure the bilious fever, chills or ague and fever; spring and fall fevers; yellow fever; bilious cholic pleurisy; dysentery; worms; bilious vomiting; sick and f >ul stomach. By cleansing the bowels and stomach from all impuri ties, they restore the appetite ; remove flatulency; cure j tho headacho; habitual costivenens; colds; coughs; asthma; epeliptic fits; hypochondria; hysterical com plaint; stransguary; gravel, &c. By a general und copious use, they will be found very beneficial in curing the rhuematism and gout, lumbago or pains in the back. All impurities in the blood yield to their happy effects, whether proceeding from constitution al ailment, or from indiscreet intemperance. These celebrated pills have been used to very great' advantage in curing the dyspepsia, or indigestion, bron chitis, liver complaint, &c. They are an infallible medicine for Female Complaints generally, and especially for removing those obstructions which are the source of their ailments at certain periods, they possess the eminent advantage over most other pur gatives, that while they operate gently, they produce neither dostiveness, debility, nor too great excitement. Whenever ihere is a predisposition to receive disease from marsh effluvia, or from a too copious use of ardent spirits, or from a vitiated state of the bile, these pills will assuredly counteract it. They are highly recommended to travellers by sea or J land, and may be made use of without change of diet, and in situations w here no exercise can be used. They will be found p articularly valuable for preventing diseases in cidenial to hot climates, they deterge and cleanse vicid humors, open obstructions and promote the secretion of good bile, operate as an easy catnartic, as a powerful diur etic, and as a dinrphoretic. Dr. Dyott, under the strong conviction of the power of his pills to relievo the afflicted, recommends tne use of them to those who are in health as well as the afflicted, at least once a fortnight, during the Spring and Summer months, in which he feels assured those who attend to his his advice will find the benefit they seek. A bill of directions accompanies each box of Pills. Take notice?each box is sealed with red wax, stamped with the Proprietor's coat of arms, and signed T. W. DYOTT, M. D. and T. W. DYOTT, Jr. For sale at the Bookstore of R. FARNHAM, corner of 11th street and Penn.

HIS valuable medicine is offered to the public with the confident awurance of its superior efficacy as a remedy for worms. It not only expels the worms, but prevents the return of them, by removing the weak state of the di gestive organs on which their production mainly depends. It also removes the superabundant mucus or slime exist ing in the stomach of children in bad health, and which forms the bed or nest in which the worms produce their young. In doubtful cases, where there is a general de rangementof systqpi from want of due action in the liver and a debilitated or torpid condition ofstomach and bowels, the INDIAN VERMIFUGE gives speedy relief by cleans ing the stomach and bowels and stimulating the liver to healthy action?the appetite is speedily restored, and the pale and sunken countenance give place to tho plumpness of face, and the ruddy hue of health. The following general agencies are established in Philadelphia, where the medicine may be hud Wholesale and Retail: Dyott's Fountain Head, Second above Race street, and Vaughan, Third and Race street.
