FEM.A1JES, owing to the peculiar and important relations which they sustain, their peculiar organiza tion, and the offices they perform, are subject to many sufferings. Freedom from these contribute in no small degree to their happiness and welfare, for none can be happy who are ill. Not only so, but no one of these various female complaints c m long be suffered to run on without involving the general health of the individual, and are long producing per manent sickness and premature decline. Nor is it pleasant to consult a physician ior the relief of these various delicate affections, and only upou the most urgent necessity will a true woman so far sacrifice her greatest charm as to do this. The sex will then thank us for placing in their hands simple specifics which will be fonnd efficacious in relieving and cur ing almost every one of those troublesome complaints peculiar to the sex. HELMBOLD’S Extract Buchu ! Hundreds suffer on in silence, and hundreds oi others apply vainly to druggists and doctors, who ei ther merely tantalize them with the hope ot a cure or apply remedies which make them worse. I would not assert anything that would do iitfustice to tbe at flicted, but I am obliged to say that although it may be produced from excessive exhaustion of the powers of life, by laborious employment, unwholesome air and food, profuse menstruation, the use ot tea and coffee, and frequent childbirth, it is far oftener caus ed by direct irritation, applied the mucous mem brane of the yagina itself. When reviewing the causes of these distressing complaints, it is most painfiil to contemplate the at atendant evils consequent upon them. It is but sim ple justice to the subject to enumerate a few of tbe many additional causes which so largely affect tbe life, health, and happiness ot woman in all classes ot society, and which, consequently, affect more or less directly, the welfhre of the entire human family. The mania that exists for precocious education and mar riage, causes the years that nature designated for corporeal development to be wasted and perverted in the restraints ot dress, the early confinement of school, and especially in the unhealthy excitement of the ball room. Thus, with the body half clothed, and the mind unduly excited by pleasure, perverting in midnight revel the hours designed by nature for sleep and rest, the work of destruction is halt accom plished. In consequence ot this early strain upon her sys tem, unnecessary effort is required 'by the delicate votary to retain her situation in school at a later day thus aggravating the evil. When one excitement is over, another in prospective keeps the mind morbid ly sensitive to impression, while the now constant restraint of fashionaule dress, absolutely forbidding the exercise indispensable to the attainment and re tention of organic health and strength; the exposure to night air; the sudden change of temperature; the complete prostration produced by excessive dancing, must ot necessity, produce their legitimate effect. At least an early marriage caps the climax of misery and the unfortunate one, hitherto so utterly regard lees of the plain dictates and remonstrances ot her delicate nature, becomes an unwilling subject of medical treatment. This is but a truthful picture of the experience oi thousands of our young women. Long before the ability to exercise the functions oi the generative organs, they require an education oi their peculiar nervous system, composed of what is called the tissue, which is, in common with the fe male breast and lips, evidently under the control of mental emotions and associations at an early period of lift; and as we shall subsequently see, these emo tions, when excessive, lead, long before puberity, to habits which sap the very life of their victims ere nature has self-completed their development. For Female Weakness and Debility .Whites orLen corrhma, Too Profuse Menstruation, Exhaustion,Too Long Continued Periods, lor Prolapsus and Bearing Down, or Prolapsus Uteri, we offer the most perfec specific known: HELMBOLD’S Compound Extract of Buchu. Directions for use, diet, and advice, accompany. Females in every period of life, from infancy to extreme old£ge, will find it a remedy to aid nature the discharge ot its functions. Strength is the glory of manhood and womanhood. Helmbold’s Extract Buchu l is more strenghening than any of the preparations of Bark or Iron, infinitely safer, and more pleasant, Helmbold’s Extract Buchu having received the en dorsement of the most prominent physicians in the United States, is now ottered to afilicled humanity as a certain cure for the following diseases and symp toms, fiom whatever cause originating: General Debility, Mental and Physical Depression, Imbecili ty, Determination ot Blood to the Head, contused Ideas, Hysteria, General Instability, Restlessness and Sleeplessness at Night, Absence of Muscular Ef ficiency, Loss of Appetite, Dyspepsia, Emaciation Low Spirits, Disorganization or Paralysis of the Or gans ot Generation, Palditation of the Heart, and, in fact, all the concomitants ot a Nervor and Debilita ted state of the system.

The rates ot premium, being largely reduced, are made as favorable to the insuiers as those of the best Mutual Companies, and avoid all the complications and uncertainties ol notes, (ilvbfends, and the mis understandings which the 1 tter are so apt to cause the Policy-Holder. Several new and attractive tables are now present ed which need only to be understood to prove accept able to tbe public, such as tbe INruME-PRODUC ING POLICY and RE TURN PREMIUM POLICY. In tbe former, the policy-holder not onlv secures a life insurance, payable at death, but will receive, if living, alter a period ol a few years, an annual in come equal to ten per cent. (10 per cent, i of the par qf his policy. In the latter, the Company agree g to re turn to the assured the total amount qi' money he has paid in, in addition to the amount q/’ his policy. The attention ot persons contemplating insuring their lives or in< rising the amount, ot insurance ttey already have, is called to the special advantages of fered by the National Lite Insurance Company.
