TN looking around upon mankind, the philanthropist I cannot but find too much to lament. The various ills to which Ins raco aro subject, and which nro dailv and hourly hurrying thousands to the grave, and some, toe in the morning of life, when the hopes of parents ntid friends seemed budding into maturity, are sufficient to awaken the liveliest sympathies of tlwso whose hearts arc not callous to ovcrv sympathetic feeling. When by the 1 haggard look, the hurried breathing and tho hollow cough of those with whom ho has boon in the habit of holding sweet intercourse, porhaps of his own blood re- 1 lotions, he sees the spark of lile dimly glimmering or iust 1 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, undor Providence tho consequences of these i-Jls might, bo stayed ; his hotter nature becomes excited, and he is stimulatod to his task in viewofthe mighty results which may flow from his toils. 1 hus wo see the market crowded with nostrums whose virtues, if tho half of which were truo, would cause Death itself to die and man become immortal. Iu presenting tho Panacea of the Dandelion and To MATO to tho public, wo would say that we do not claim for it, that it shall bo a specific for a/Z tho diseases to which tho human frame is subject, but for all for which it is re commendod. it has for its recommendation the sanction ol the experience of tho most distinguished and enlight ened physicians on the globe. The proprietors deem it unnecessary to stale tho cost to which they have boon at, or care which has been taken to select, in tho first place, thu best articles, and then devise tho means by which their whole strength mav bo given to the public. They ask for it only that meed of attention to which tho sick and suffering in tho commu nity may deem it entitled. They aro willing that its healing properties should bo its only recommendation, and that the relief and health which is sure to como 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 mav re ceive a share of its lieali'g benofits. Tho Panacea is composed, as all must be aware who know anvthintr of tho Dandelion, tomato, and sar^parilla its principal iiigredionts, from iho most innocent as well' as the most effectual plants in the vegetable kingdom ? there is scarcely an individual who is not well acquaint ,w''h'lle efficacy of tho DANDELION, TOMATO and SARSAPARI I,LA, and who do not know that in those diseases in which a complete and radical change in the composition of the blood, in tho secretions of the Liver, and in the formation of all the solid parts of tho body are regarded, that there are no remedies which will for a moment compare with them ; in fact, in ull those regions in which liver diseases are prevalent, or where lrom the nature of tho climate, any impurities of tho blood' exists ihe Dandelion grows in great quantities, and is eager!y sought after. It seems from the great abundance ol the Dandelion in ull the rrgions where such diseases or any that flow Iroin them exists, that it was the design ol the Creator that, where tho malady was found, the ro inedy also mighl be obtained. Tliey are therefore offer ed to the public willi lull confidence lor the relief of those diseases for which the articles themselves aro so often re commended by all our first physicians. Such as Headache, Dizziness, -Sleepiness, Noises in the head, bad taste in the mouth, nausea or sickness of tho stomach, loss of appetite, indigestion, dyspepsia, fever and a&ne, palii after eating, sour stomach, heartburn, jaundice costiVeness, determination of the blood to the head piles' coughs, colds; pain in iho side, back, limbs, and joints' ifieumaiism, and ull chronic diseases, scrolulous humors 7U.1!

A Really Good Article ?Always anxious to ben efit our readers in every possible way, wo would now recommend to their notice an article prepared by Ranson Stevens, Druggists, which is fully deserving of confi dence and every way worthy to be relied on. We mean the Dandelion and Tomato Panacea. Compounded from nine of the best medicines produced in tho vegetable kingdom ; the Dandelion, Tomato, and Sarsaparilla form ing the chief ingredients, which aie well known and uni versally admitted to contain tho most healthful properiies the science ol medicine has yet discovered. We called at the store of these gentlemen yesterday and had iho pleasure of perusing letters, some of which were from I hysiemns ol the highest respectability, and others from gentlemen of undoubted integrity, all speaking in the highest terms of the good effects of the medicine. They also hold in their possession, innumerable certificates from persons, somo with whom we aro acquainted, and in whose word wo can place tho fullest .confidence of the wonderful cures performed by its u*e ; such as Asthma, brysipoius, Dyspepsia, Salt Rheum, Chronic. Diseases, Ktieuniatism, Scrofula, and for all impnriiies of the blood and from our own knowledge und confidence in the gen tlemen who prepare liio* medicine and the trial we have li.nl ol its virtues, we havo no hesitation in recommending it ^ as ono of the bes; alteratives and purifiers of the bio jd now bofore the public. For anything in the apothecary line wo would recommend the store of these gentlemon 3^5 Washington street, as inferior to none in this city ? their high moral worth and strict integrity being sufficient gua ranty to the public against any altempt at imposition.' In copying the alrne from the Mail, we are happy in I being abio lo endorse every word of it, having tried the Dandelion and f'omato Panacea ourselves with the hap piest ellects.
