Fit cannot be denied,
OR truth is mighty, that Dr. Leidy's SARSAPA
RILLA is the purest, strongest, and most efficacious
of any other preparation of Sarsaparilla that is made.
It is warranted to be stronger than six bottles of
most others, stronger than four of some, and stronger
than three of the strongest prepared by any other in
the United States.
Dr. Leidy's Sarsaparilla is recommended by all
respectab.e physicians in preference to any other.
All who have ever used it have derived more benefit
from one bottle than three to ten of others; and
those who, after having used other preparations with
out benefit, will use Dr. Leidy's, will soon be con
vinced (as thousands have already been) of the fore
going assertion. j -<i ?
The apparatus with which Dr. Leidy's extracts,
used in his preparation of Sarsaparilla as prepared, is
the only ?ne in the United States, imported bj lV.
Leidy himself, from the celebrated house of Pelleter
& Cavcntou, in Paris, at a great expense, and is ca
pable of extracting the medicinal virtues of Sarsa
parilla and other roots more effectually than by any
other process.
As several hundred certificates of remarkable
curcs, and recommendations from clergymen and
physicians have been from time to time published in
different papers, it is only thought necessary to keep
the public acquainted as to where Dr. Leidy's Sar
saparilla can be be obtained genuine, namely, at Ur.

ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF THE
UNITED STATES.
IN looking around upon mankind, the nhitanthiopist
cannot hut find too much to lament. The variouti ills
to which his rice are subject, and which are daily and
hourly hurrying thousands to the grave, and home, in
the morning of life, when the hopes of parents and friends
seemed budding into maturity, are sufficient to awaken
the liveliest sympathies of these whose hearts are noi
callous to every sympathetic feeling. When by the
haggard look, the hurried breathings and the hollow
cough of those with whom he lias been in the habit of
holding sweet intercourse, perhaps of his own blood re
lations, he sees the spark of lite aimly glimmering or just
ready tn go out, how does his longing desires increase
that the mind of man, omnipotent almost as it is, could j
devise some means, by which, under Providence, the
consequences of these ilia might bestayed; his better [
nature becomes excited, and he is stimulated to his task
in view of the mighty results which may flow from his
toils. Thus we see the market crowded with nostrums
whose virtues, if the half of which were true, would
cause Death itself to die and man become immortal.
In presenting the Panacea of the Dandelion and To
mato to the public, we would say that we do not claim
for it, that it shall be a specific for all the diseases to wldch.
the human frame is subject, but for all for which it is re
commended. It has for its recommendation the sanction
of the experience of the most distinguished and enlight
ened physicians on the glob.o.
'Hie proprietors deem it unnecessary to state the cost to
which they have been at, or care which has been taken
to select, in the first place, the best articles, and then
devise the means by which their whole strength mav be
given to the public. They n#k for it only that meed of
attention to which the sick and suffering in the commu
nity may deem it entitled. They are willing that its
healing properties should be its only recommendation,
and tha t the relief and health which is sure to come to
the suffering and diseased after its use should proclaim its
virtues; they intend, and have made, such arrangements
that it shall have an extensive sale, and that they may re
ceive a share of its heali g benefits, The Panacea is
composed, as all must be aware who know anything of
the LJANDELION, TOMATO, and SARSAPARILLA,
its principal ingredients, from the most innocent, as well
as the most effectual plants in the vegetable kingdom.?
There is scarcely an individual who is not well acquaint
ed with the efficacy of the DANDELION, TOMATO,
and SARSAPARILLA, afid who do not know that in
those diseases in which a complete and radical change in
the composition of the blood, in the secretions of the
Liver, and in the formation of all the solid parts of the
body are regarded, that there are no remedies which, will
for a moment compare with them; in fact, in all thoie
regions.jp which liver diseases are prevalent, or where,
from the nature of the climate, any itapiirilfes of the blood
exists, the. Dandelion grows in great quantities, and is
eagerly sought after. It seems from the great abundance
of the Dandelion in all the regions where such diseases
or any that flow from ihem exists, that it was the design
of the Creator that, where the malady was fuund, the re
medy also might be obtained. They are therefore offer
ed lo the public with full confidence for the relief of those
diseases for which {he articles themselves are so often re
commended by all our first physicians.
Such as Headache, Dizziness, Sleepiness, Noises in the
head, had taste in the mouth, nausea or sickness of the
stomuoh, loss of appetite, indigestion, dyspepsia, fever and
ague, pain after eating, sour stomach, heartburn, jaundice,
costiveness, determination of f he blood to the head, piles,
coughs, colds, pain in the side, buck, limbs, and joints,
rheumatism, and all chronic disea.-es. scrotulous humors,
>nit rheum, and cutaneous erupt kins of the skin, general
debility, <fcc.

From the Botlon Daily Mail.
A Really Good Article ?Always anxious to ben
efit our readers in every possible way, we would now
recommend to their notice an article prepared by Ranson
& Stevens, Dtrufcgists, which is fully deserving pf confi
dence and every way worthy to be relied on. We mean
the Dandelion and Tomato Panacea. Compounded from
nine of the l>e$t medicine* produced in tlw vegetable
kingdom ; the Dandelion, Tomato, and Sarsaparilfc form
ing the chief ingredients, which are well known and uni
versally admitted to contain tJw most healthful properties
the science of medicine has yet discovered. We called
at the store of these gentlemen yesterday and had the
pleasure of perusing letters, some of which were from
Physicians of the highest respectability, and others from
gentlemen of undoubted imegrity, all speaking in the
highest terms of the good effects of the medicine. They
also hold in their possession, innumerable certificates from
persons, some with whom we are acquainted, and in
whose word we can place the fullest confidence of the
wunderftil cures' performed by its use ; such a* Asthma,
Erysipelas, Dyspepsia, Salt Rheum, Chronic Diseases,
Rheumatism, Scrofula, and for all impurities of the blood,
and from our own knowledge and confidence in the gen
tlemen who prepare the medicine aud'the trial we have
had of its virtues, we have no hesitation in recommending it
as one of the bent alteratives and purifiers of the bio >d now
before the public. For anything in the apothecary line,
we would recommend the store of these gentlemen, 325
Washington street, as inferior to nuna in this oily ; their
high moral worth and strict integrity being sufficient gua
ranty to the public against any attempt at imposition.'
In copying the above from the Mail, we are happy in
being able to endorse every word of it, having tried this
Dandelion and Tomato Panacea ourselves with the hap
piest effects. The proprietors are really desert ing of
patronage, and we are sure that success will crown their
efforts. Give them a call at their store, Amory Hall
buildings, 3iS Washington street, secoud dour north of
West street.? Daily 'lime*.
