Thinking a newspaper would bear squeezing

he saw something which he fouad to be a rich
gold locket, containing one of the most charm
ing faces imaginable.
SPECJE. The New York Tribune says:—
"The stream of specie from the OH World

severe sickness, which with subsequent exposure
| very materially injured my eoustilution, I being able
however much of the time to work, although my
lunge were affected and I had a cough; for the last
year I grew much worse, and the last winter I caught
| a severe cold. The pain in my breast, distriss in
| breathing and coughing very much increased. I took
j a number of popular remedies for consumption, but
' tltev failed to relieve me. At last I was confined to

' I did nut expect to remain here long. I sentfor Mar-
I cos i>. Moore, who resides at the corner of Lydius
I and Grand st-', (who will confirm this statement) and
I made a disposition of my property. A few days af
I ter this a friend sent you to see me; you ordered a

cording to .vmir directions and liniHetlifilely 1 felt re

READ THE PROOF.
Dr. Townsend: i had. been afflicted for months h)
a dry, hacking cough; at least 1 raised great quutili
! tics of had matter, and experienced a severe pain in
imy left side, accompanied with a distress on my
| lungs—my cough very much increased, and 1 had
! cold night sweats. Learning that you had a remedy
j for such cases, 1 concluded to liy it. I purchased a
; hott't of your Extract of Sarsaparilla—before 1 had
finished taking it, my cough raising, and the pain
1 in my side lett me, and I now have regained my gen
j eral health. Believing your medicine to be a very

are similarly situated. 1 found the medicine pleas

RHEUMATISM,
This SarsnpatiWa is used with the most perfect sac
cess in Rheumatic complaints, however severe ot
chronic. The astonishing cures it has performed
ate indeed wonderful. Other remedies sometimes
give temporary relief. This entirely ersdeiates it
from the system, even when the limbs and bones arc
dreadfully swollen.
Dr. Townsend: I was attacked with a distressing
| pain in nty hipjoint, so bad that I could not walk
without my crutches; aud tnuch or the time I was
: obliged to keep my bed. I tried several remedies, but
tliey did not relieve me. 1 then called on one of our
first Physicians; he did not help me. I heard of yout
Sarsaparilla, and obtained a bottle, and in a few days
, it entirely aured me, aid I am as well now as ever.

had been sorely afflicted by the Rheumatism for

! GREAT FEMALE MEDICINE.
Dr. Towneend's Sarsaparilla is a soveregn and
speedy cure for incipietitjConsumption, Barrenness,
Leucorrhas, Incontinence of Urine, or involuntary
j discharge thereof, and for the general prostration of
] the system; no matter whether the result of inherent
cause or causes, produced by irregularity, iliness or
| accident.
QQt-Nolhiug can be more surprising than its invi
gorating effects on the human frame. Persons, all
, weakness aud lassitude before taking it, at once be
cotne robust nud full of energy under its influence i
It immediately counteracts the nervelessness of the
! female frame, which is the great cause of barren
ness.
It will n dbe expected of us, in cases of so delicati -
a nature, to exhibit certificates of cures performed. ,
but we can assure the t tilicted, that hundreds of ca- ;
see have been resorted to us. Several eases, whet,
families have been without children, after using a
few bottles of this invaluable medicine, have beep
blessed with healthy offspring.
Dr. Townsend:—My wife being greatly distressed
by weakness and general debility, and suffering con
tinually by pain and a sensation of hearing down, i
falling of the womb, and with other difficulties, and
having known eases where your medicine lias ef
fected great cures, and also hearing it recommended ;
fur such diseases as I have described, 1 obtained a I
bottle of yout Extract of Sarsaparilla, and followed '
the directions you gave me—in a short period it re-1
moved her complaints and restored hci health. Be j
ing grateful for the benefits she received, I lake plea I
sure in thus acknowledging it, and recommending i; |
to the public. M. I). MOORE, I

Dr. Townsend: i
To all whom it may concern —This is to testify. ;
that my wife used one bottle of yaur Sarsaparilla pre
j vious to her confinement, under the most alarming I
I and delicatecircumstances,being troubled with the]
dropsy, swelling of the feet, nervous affections, and |
j very much debilitated; with my persuasion, and re j
commendation of those who had used it, she was in- '
j duced to try it, with little or no fnith, and suffice ii j
J to say, the tne licine had the happy and desired ef ,
j feci, not only in the hours of confinement,but aftei I
I the expiration of one week ofits use the dropsy am '
her nervous affection gave way to an astonishingde >
gree, and her health is now better than il has beer 1
for a long time previous.
If this will be of any scrvioe to you, or any out j
that doubts the effects of the medicine, you arc tn '

To young men and others, who may ha.e injured
themselves by improper indulgences.
IMPOTEN CY-IMP UIS SA NT E.
One of the most frequent penalties paid by those
' who give unrestrained license to their passions, is a
loss of virile power. The young, unaware of the
fearful results that may ensue are hut 100 apt to com
mit excesses. Itupotency may and does occur from
stricture, gravel, deposites in the urine, and from
many other causes; but by far the most frequent
j source of it i abuse of the sexual organs, by exces
! sive venery or self-pollution—particularly the last
11 is a fact w ell known to those who understand the
mailer, that all those who practice the tolitary vice
lose the power of pro-cteaiiiig sooner than the more
1 prudent. Too great excitement of the genital organs
is, however, productive of o her effects besides pre
mature impotency; it tends to derange the diges'ive
(auctions and weaken the physical and mental pow
efs Thus parente and others are often deceived as
| to the true source of the complaints of youth and
young men. It could be shown how the attenuation
; of the frame, palpitation of the heart, derangement
j of the nervous system, cough, indigestion, and a
train of symptoms, indicative of consumption, are
of en ascribed to wrong causes, when in reality they
: are the consequences of an alluring and pernieious
t practice,alike destructive to the mind and bodv.
PES PERTES SEMINALESINVOLUNTAIRES.
The most common ri suit of self-abuse is iuvoiun-
I taryßeminal emission- 1 , for various reasons, but a
j passing notice of this distressing complaint can be
[given here. It conies on very gradually, it eom
mences by a precipitate emission of semen eit' i r in
| coition or during lascivious dreams. The emissions
are premature and without force, and the erections
slight arid incomplete and soon subside. As the nf
! fection increases, Ihe emissions become more fro
- qu.-nt and more readily excited, are induced merely
| by eratic ideas or the least contact or litilation. and
1 take place without erection and without pleasure—
j sails sccousse et sans sensations volnptuese. In ill s
! weak and susceptible condoiori nf the organs—pol
lutions arc liable to occur both d ly and night, gradu
ally undermining the heallli.
The patient becomes pale, thin and weak, suffers
from pains in back ami head, has disturbed vision,
; and a sickly languid look, and feels totally unfitted
; for active bodilv or mental occupation. His mind
being constantly absorbed with his sufferings, he
| eagerly peruses evi ry thing relative to his complaint.
Obliged to conceal tiis situation from his friends, and
ashamed to apply to those who from education,
knowledge and practical experience are alone able
to assist him, lie flies to some ignorant quack, lo
wborn his pecuniary means are drained, for which
[ he only meets in return with bitter disappoinment.
j At length, epilepsy, cutalepsy, mania, or somet other
| disease of the neivous system, makes its appearance,
j and the patient is relieved from his horrid situation
| bv a premature death, the cause of which had frc
I qitently been entirety overlooked by his unsuspecting
I friends.
j If this publication should meet the eye of any rne
who, in the indiscretion and imprudence attendant mi
[ youth should have brought on himself any ol the evils
alluded to above, to such, Dr. Rogers offers his servi
ces, and pledges the inosl honorable secrecy. He be
lieves that he hasthe meansnfremedyingtheirsuff'er

DESTRUCTIVE HABIT. How many youth spot a
their health by the hateful and dangerous practice olm
solitary indulgence. This is very injurious to the
dividuals whose complexions becoming pale, and*l
their bodies feeble, had digestioa, their stomachs very |
windy, and some pains arc to be felt in the stomach,
many times in ill lungs and elsewhere, according to
the duration nf this destructive vice. 1 have seen a
gnat many youths carried to their graves before
twenly-seven years of age, for not having quit it and
be relieved in time.
Study frequently products this affection, since the
head, strongly taxed, irrit tee the entire nervous sys
tem, although there is little propensity in nature to
pursue this vice during sleep, dreams ar ready to
seduce the senses of the young victim, until he in
voluntarily becomes guilty of the weakness, from the
efleets of which all the skill of the medical profes
sion has much difficulty in saving him. It is this se
ries of eircumstaaces which gives rise to the cause,
rim result of which terminates in nocturnal excite
ment.
During my residence in Paris, which lasted mere
than a score of years, I had occasion to examine a
great many thousands of those cases w hicli acquaint
ed me wilb all the peculiaiitics of that detestable
and injurious habit which soon or late wiN kill the
patient, or what is worst still bring him 10 kill him
self.
Among the very many which 1 have treated and
cured thete, I recollect a man affected with ibis mh_
crable complaint, who on the eve of suicide came to
see uie; ih reading of a scientific journal which |
published at that time, gave him some rays of hope
and lie detailed me bis complaint as Co lows: '
1 am a man of thirty odd years old, a porirait pain
ter by trade, and in easy circumstances, but the most
miserable being in raind that ever lived, I never had
any intercourse with any being whatever but myself.
From niv boyhood I sought lohely places and indulg
ed in this v ce ol nature, but soon after my digestive
organs became weak and windy, hard digestions
feebleness and above all so nervous that the least
noise made me jump with tearfulness, though I had
no fear.
You were right said he to call this complaint noc
turnal, for it was at night that I indulged the most itj
that horrible practice, w hicli debilitated me to such as
extent that 1 was unable to walk half a mile without
taking some rest, my parents were alarmed at the
stale of my health, called a doctor w ho suspected me
of this practice for he turned every way to find out 1
the truth, I denied all, even the knowledge of it, but
icsi.lved to quit it, but it was in vain for I resisted all
the day long, but at night the dreams came to seduce
my senses and ruined inc. I thought ill got married
it might chance the vice. Therefore sir I have come
to the conclusion to put myself unreseivedly under
your care, and if you don't lit me to get married and
have a family, 1 will soon be out of this world.
First thing I bed to do, was to re-establish the dis
j orderly organs of digestion, then to strengthen the de-
I bilitated organs in question, then another kind of
[ medicine to break the viciated habit of nature, after
which the patient found himself of a more lively dis
position, got married and had several children before
| I left Paris.
I will now cile another case which occurred lately
lin my practice in Baltimore The patient presented
\ me the following certificate after bi ing cured
i TO THE AFFLICTED OF THE SOLITARY
| VICE. I am a man of thirty years of age, and have
been addicted in my boyhood to ihe destructive habit
tetmcd Solitary Vice; I have learned it from bad boys
and practiced it for about ten years, but thank God I
have quit it and recovered my health and strength
once more. Soon after the commencement of this
abominable practice instead of glowing strong, benr
ty,and blooming as youths generally do. my health
impaired, my body feeble, and my digestioa difficult.
It was not long before my parents were somewhat
alarmed and sent for a physician who pronounced
me affected with a Eiver Complaint— several other
j doctors weie called in succession, some treated me
J fur Consumption and others for disease of the Heart,
, bo we t|g r Iln y all agreed lhat I had Ihe Dys-.epsia
| When about 90 years of age I became fretful, tremb
ling at the least tr ise. arnt shunned all com, any, par
ticularly lhat of Females. I cho?ed to he alone
though I was not cf.fiiparty 10 myself, and thousands
and thousands of limes I secretly desired that death
would come to rid me of my miserable existence (to A
say no mote.) Tlip perusing of a little treatise trans- ■
Inted from the French which forlnnntely lei Into my J
hands, instructed me on the true cause of my suffer
ing, I then resolved to quit ibis nocturnal practice and
accordingly did so for sev. Ml yt are, but that infernal
vice did not leave me, and 11 committed Itsrieureda
tions in my sleep—while in this orecartous situation
I saw otrealisr on Ibis disease advertised in ihe Bun.
I bought it and found Hint it explained my disease so
minutely that I resolved to pot myself unreservedly
under the care of its author—l did not hesitate much
for he showed me several unfortunate beings who
had spoiled their health as I did, among whom was a
young physician, and they all indeed spoke so highly
of the skill, ability and experience o' this truly learn
ed physician,that I cannot but join with them in re
commending him particularly in this complaint, for I
