ADDRESS TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES. TN looking around upon mankind, t|le philanthropist 1. cannot but find too much to lament. The various His to which his race are subject, and which aro daily and hourly hurrying thousands to the grave, and tome, too, in tho morning of life, when the hopes of parents ami friends seemed budding into maturity, arc sufficient to awaken the liveliest sympathies of these whose heart* uro not callous to every sympathetic feeling. When bv the haggard look, the hurried breathings and the hollow cough of those with whom he has been in the habit of holding sweet intercourse, perhaps of his own blood re lations he sees the spark of life dimly glimmering or just ready to go out, how does his longing desires increase that the mind of man, omnipotent almost as it is could devise some means, by which, under Providence the consequences of these ills might be stayed : his better nature becomes excited, and ho is stimulated to his tusk m view of the mighty results which may flow from his toils. J bus 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. lu presenting tho Panacea of the Dandelion and To mato to tho public, we would say that we do not claim for it, that it shall be a specific for all the diseases to which the human frame is subject, but for ull for which it is re commended. It has for its recommendation the sanction of the experience of tho most distinguished and enliirht enecl physicians on the globe. I lie 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, tho best articles, and then devise the means by which their whole strength may be given to the public, lliey nsk for it only that meed of attention to which tho sick and suffering in the commu niI v may deem it entitled. They are willing that its healing properties should be its only recommendation, and that 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 -T Vi "re "filH ,,LTli!7K l)erlefi,s- 1'1'e Panacea is composed, as all must, be aware who know anything of the DANDELION, 1OMATO, and SARSAPARILLA Its principal ingredients, from the most innocent, ns well as the most effectual plants in the vegetable kingdom ? 1 here is scarcely an individual who is not well acquaint "f tho DANDELION, TOMATO and SARSA1 AR1LLA, and 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 tho Liver, and m the formution of a.11 the solid parts of tho body are regarded, that there are no remedies which will tor a moment compare with them ; in fact, in all those regions in which liver diseases are prevalent, or where, from the nature of the climate, any impnritios of the blood exists the Dandelion grows in great (juantilies, and is eagerly sought alter. Jt seems from the great abundance o^nnvVh"t fl ?'V,n itho rrgio"fi where such diseases or an> that flow Irom them exists, that it was the design of the G reator that, where the malady was found, the re medy also might be obtained.

We called at the More of these gentlemen yesterday and had the pleasure ol perusing letters, some of which were from f hysiciuns of the highest respectability, and others from gentlemen of undoubted integrity, ull speaking in the highest terms of the good ellbcls of the medicine! Thev 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 wonderful cures performed by its use ; such as Asthma Erysipelas, Dyspepsia, Salt Rheum, Chronic Diseases Kheumatism, Scrofula, and for all impurities of the blood and from our own knowledge and confidence in the gen tlemen who prepare the medicine and the trial we have had of its virtues, we have no hesitation in recommending it as one of the best alteratives and purifiers of tho blood now before the public. For anything in the apothecary line wo would recommend the storo of those gentlemen 325' Washington street, us inferior to none in this city ; 'their high moral worth and strict integrity being sufficient gua ranty to the public against any attempt at imposition." Iu copying the above from tho Mail, we uro Imnpy in being abio to endorse every word of it, having tried the Dandelion and Tomato Panacea ourselves with tho hap piest efleets.

This coal is mined near Wilkesbarre, Pennsylvania, and is known in this city as the celebrated Butler Coal, which has been highly recommended by all who have used it, as will be seen by the highly respectable cer tificates annexed: I used coal last winter, which I purchased of Messrs, John Pettibone & Co., and it gave entue satisfaction. W. W. SEATON. Patent Office, May 31,1844. Gentlemen : The Coal that you furnished lor the Patent Office during this last spring proved very excellent; and I used the same kind which was delivered at my house. It proved in both cases highly satisfactory. H. L. ELL8WORTH. Messrs. J. Pettibonb & Co., Washington. Office Secretary Senate, June 1,1844. Messrs Pettibone Sc Co. furnished a small quantity oi Coal for the furnaces of the north portion of the Capitol, and it wns reported to be of a good quality. They also furnished at a reisonabla price for my own private us?, during the last winter, several tons of the same kind of Coal, and 1 was entirely satisfied with it, finding but little dust from its use, and but little else remaining than ashes, there being scarcely any clinker left. W. HICKEY. Washington, June 25th, 1844. Gentlemen : Having used your Coal, 1 can cheerfully recommend it as being of superior quality for ensv ignition and culinary purposes. Respectfully, J. Pettibone & Co. WM SKIRV1NG. ~ May 31,1844. I purchased Butler Coal from John Pettibone & Co. last fall and found it a very superior article. W. LENOX. Mat 25,1844. I purchased last year, from Messrs. John Pettibone & Co., what he called the Butler Coal. I never used a finer article of fuel. When I can find the Butler Coal, 1 shall not inquire for any other kind, for ( am persuaded there is none better. JAMES HOB AN. Danville, Prnn. August 2,1843. I have bought of Messrs. Butler & Co some hundred tons of their Anthracite Coal, and sold to persons for dif ferent uses, and used considerable of it myself. For burning in stoves and grates, I do pronounce it as good Coal as I ever have made use of; and every person to whom I have sold the Coal say they have never used anytliing they liked better. JOHN C. GRIER. We can produce many other certificates in accord\ ance with the above. J. PETTIBONE & Co. N. B.
