THE TRUTH SOMETIMES NOT FOUND OCT UNTIL TOO IJITE. | SUCH is often the case in regard to persons taking I medicine. They are induced by plausible rea soning, false repiesentation and doctrines, to employ medicines that, so far from being adapted to their disease or sickness, absolutely increase the symp toms, destroy the constitution, rack the whole ' system, and bring 011 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- I 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 celcbrted SaRSAPA R1LLA BLOOD PILLS, the 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 a"d without restraint from occupation or usual course of "y'f'g- Upwards of 1,000 certificates have been pubhshed, vanous times, of their eflicacy. 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 time in a place where they arc manufactured; this, how ever, arises m part from the fact that the manufac hirer of them (Dr. Leidy) is well known at home as a regular physician and apothecary, knowing the true nature of diseases and of the medicines he recom mends, attested by the most celebrated physicians among whom are Dr. Nathaniel Chapman Dr Wm' Gibson, Dr. W. E. Horner, Dr. Samuel Jackson Dr Robert Hare, Dr P. S. Physic, Dr. T. C. James,' Dr.' w. p. Dewecs, Dr. J. Redman Coxe, Rev. W. H Delancy, Robert Adrian, LLD., 81c. &c Orders f.r Dr. Leidy's BLOOD PILLS are daily received from the North, South, East, and West, and the most flattering accounts, from every direction of their unparalleled success. A single box (25 cents) may save as many dollars, if taken in time, instead of the dangerous medicines now forced on the pub lie, 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 Relal, 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.

The following are among the many diseases for wlucn 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 lever; 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 the headache; habitual costiveness; colds; coughs ; asthma; epeliptic fits ; hypochondria ; hysterical com plaint; stransguary ; gravel, &c. . f}v a general and 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 Femalo 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 costiveness, debility, nor too great excitement. Whenever there is a predisposition to receive disease from marsh effluvia, or from a too copious use of ardent spirits, or frOin a vitiated state of the bile, these puis will assuredly counteract it. They are highly recommended to travellers by sea or land, and may be made use of without change of met, and in situations where no exercise can be used, Phey will lie found particularly valuable for preventing diseases in cidental to hot climates, they deterge and cleanse vicicl humors, open obstructions and promote the secretion ol | good bile, operate as an easy cathartic, as a powerful diur otic, and as a diarplioretic. . Dr Dyott, under the strong conviction of the power ol his pills to relievo the afflicted, recommends the use of | them to those who are in health as well as the afflicted, at least once a fortnight, during the Spring and kiimmer months, in which he feels assured those who attend to his his advice will find the benefit they seek.
