A Shining Light.—Theie is an eccentric editor
in Mississippi, who lias a little of the steamboat
and considerable of the snapping-turtle in his com
position. He gives a religious turn to all his
editorials, and we infer, from the tone of some of
them, that he is a preacher as well as an editor.
He must belong to a new sect. There is a j>ecu
harity in his matter which has struck us very for
cibly ; and we think our readers will be amused
with the following specimen of it, which we copy
from his last paper
An exchange laments th® death of Dr. Leaver, of the
Methodist Church. He is represented as having been
r> a devoted member!” What miserable selfishness ’.
Here is a “devoted member” of the church iele<sed
from this wicked world, and gone to his reward, arid in
stead of rejoicing at the devoted brother’s change from
gloom to glory, a Christian friend “laments” it! Oughtn’t
he to be turned out of church? If he belonged to our
congregation, wouldn’t we oust him? Now see how
much more liberal our religion makes us: We are glad
that the deceased has ascended to glory. We congratu
late all who loved him that he has shaken off this mor
tal coil of sin and sorrow, and now wears the robe of
celestial happiness and ihe crown of the faith. Who
so heartlessly selfish as to mourn that the bark oi his
brother has escaped the fierce storms of sin and is at
last anchored in the fair haven of immortal rest? If
any such there be in this congregation, we disown
nim; we repudiate him; we excommunicate him.
The deacons will please to show him out. To all
who believe that death is the grim angel who opes
to ransomed saints the gates to endless bliss; to
all who have faith, though no bigger than a small
sprout of mustard-seed, in the transit of pious souls
from this dark ravine of wo, to the smiling valley
of Zion: this world affords no cause for rejoicing, to
be compared with that presented in the death of the
righteous. The release from this prison-house of tor
ture of • good man’s spirit, should be hailed with ac
clamations ot unbounded delight by all the Christian
world; but by none with such enthusiastic exhileration
of spirit as the good man’s own intimate, near and dear
connexions. But alas! this parson grieves to say it. it
is the wicked custom of the loudest professing Chris
tians, not only not to rejoice in the death of their most
righteous friends, but absolutely to lament over their
translation to the cloudless climes of paradise!—thus
giving the world palpable evidence of their want of
faith in the doctrine that" Blessed are the dead who
die in the Lord!” They mourn, as those without hope,
and will noth® comforted: thus confirming the doubts
of the skeptical.

How important it is, then, that these first symptoms

MEDICATED SOAP— Beware of a Spurious Article.
—Analysis.— This delicous compound—so deservedly a
favorite with the public—is universally acknowledged
to rank foremost among modern inventions; and this
celebrity is accorded to it for its astonishing powers of
purification, as well as for its surprising medical pro
perties. Its action on the human skin is so marvellous,
that, but for the enlightened state of society, it would
be accredited to the power of magic, and its inventor
probably suffer at the stake as a wizard! The days of
necromancy, however, have gone by; but, Science,
happily, wears a belt of far greater potency than the
golden one of the mighty Hermes. Certain it is, that
tlie transformations which dark, rough, chapped,
tanned or pimpled skins, are made to undergo, by a free
use of GOURAUD’S Italian Medicated Soap,—ex
ceed the power of magic! It is so highly medicated,
that the entire host of cutaneous eruptions are imme
diately’ cured by it; it is so emolient, that the toughest,
roughest, hardest skin, is speedily made as soft and
smooth as an infant’s; its chemical properties are so
powerful, that the tnickest epidermis which a tropical
sun ever tanned into swartness, can be easily rendered
soft pliant, clear, and brilliantly white; and it is so
highly scented, that a delightful fragrance will float
the live-long day around the person using it!
For the mere purpose of the toilet, nothing can sur
r ass it; as a purifier and cleanser of the skin, nothing
can eqwal it; as a shaving compound, it is the most deli
cious article extant, and no gentleman, who values a
luxuriant tonsorial, should for a moment be without it.
If it is valuable to the maiden, wile, brother, lather,
mother or lover.it is, if possible, more so to the help

J- to be superior to anything ever manufactured for
that purpose—took the premium at the late fair of the
American Institute, in competition with Bate’s cele
brated bath, and several others, and its highly recom
mended by the press.
It forms an ornamental piece of furniture for a bed
room, may be used as a Shower or Vapor Bath, and is so
arranged with hooks, that when not used for bathing
purposes, it is a very convenient wardrobe for ladies’
or gentlemen’s use. It occupies but 21 or 26 inches
square on the floor, and weighs but 65 pounds, when
Bate’s Baths, of the same size, weigh 115, thus render
ing it portable with perfect ease from room to room.
The construction of the Bath is such that the most
delicate female can manage it with perfect ease. The
fount is lowered to receive the water by a small crank,
which can be turned by a child; it is then raised, ana
retained at any required height for a child, lady or gen
tleman. The bath is administered by pulling a small
cord, which opens a valve in the bottom of the fountain,
and may be closed at pleasure, thereby enabling a lady
of nervous temperament to take from one to five gallons
at a time.
It may be converted into a simple or medicated vapor
bath, by attaching a small apparatus with a spirit lamp,
which is sold with the bath if required.

colors the thousand arts that are employed to lure the
innocent victim from the path of virtue.

surably superior to any oilier cough medicine w’hich
has been ever introduced, as it almost instantaneously
relieves the huskiness of the throat, softens the cougn
and removes the hacking and the phlegm. And the
activity of its qature is such, that the moment it is
taken it pervades the frame—diffuses a gentle warmth
throughout—secures a free circulation of the blood—
and opens every pore of the body—thus giving univer
sal egress to the impurities which all systems engen
der, and which are the true origin of nearly all the
diseases to which the human family' is liable.
Feelings of inodgpty, to say nothing of the much-hack
neyed usage, might restrain the proprietor from sneak
ing of his discovery according to its merits, were it not
that the subject is one of far too much importance to
the public to be interfered with by personal considera
tions. He, therefore, not only recommends his Naphtha
Syrup but warrants it to cure!—he warrants it to act
upon the chyle and purify it—he warrants it to remove
all impediments which retard the free circulation of
the blood—he warrants it to open the internal and ex
ternalpores of the body and eject all the obnoxious
particles which have accumulated in the system—he
warrants it as a never-failing remedy in hectic fever,
night sweats, dyspepsia, liver complaint, pain in the
chest and asthma; and he warrants it to anest the for
mation of tubercles in the lungs, and to heal those al
ready formed, so that persons in consumption may take
it w’ith the most positive confidence of a cure; for its
great seat of action is the langs, which it penetrates in
all directions, purifying them of everything obnoxious
in its progress, and which, if applied according to
directions, it cannot fail to leave in a perfectly* healthy
Ihe most ample experience, supported by the testi
mony of the ablest and most distinguished medical
practitioners of the age, justifies the proprietor in
in speaking thus confidently of his discovery; and he
has the less hesitation in being so positive because of
the speed of its operations, whieh is such, that patients
who use it immediately feel and acknowledge it to be
the desideratum they were in quest of, and gladly ac
cord him all the praise which b.e claims in its favor. In
deed, its action is so energetic that its curative effects
plainly manifest themselves in a few moments after it
is taken, and a single dose has frequently’ produced re
sults which bottles of other medicines had failed to
Again the proprietor warrants his Naphtha Syrup to
be everything he claims for it; and he only asks the
trial of a single bottle, or even a single dose, to convince
patients that it is, beyond all comparison, the most pala
table, speedy, and efficacious remedy they* ever made
use of; for it gives powerful manifestations of its cura
tive qualities almost immediately after it is received
into the stomach.
It is a universal purifier; it attacks the very root of
disease, by penetrating every fibre of the body* and ex
pelling all foreign and noxious particles in its progress,
and no matter of a corrupt or impure nature can re
main in the system w’hen under its influence. “And
hence its cures are not only sure but permanent, for
not satisfied with destroying the disease, it expels even
the most minute seeds of it altogether from the system.”
Price one dollar a bottle; six bottles for five dollars.
As this is a very expensive preparation, it is not left
around on commission, as is the mode w’ith quack medi
cines, but must be purchased out and out by* those who
sell again. This arrangement will, in general, limit its
sale to the larger cities and towns; and, therefore, per
sons residing w’here Hasting’s Naphtha Syrup cannot
be obtained, and who can be reached by stage, express
steamboat, or any other public conveyance, should
write direct to M. A. F. HARRISON, 117 Greenwich
st.. New York, inclosing a remittance for the number
of bottles required, which will be immediately* packed
and forwarded to them, in a manner to secure their safe
and speedy delivery.

case-'-one of very long standing.
We refer to an advertisement under this head in ano

tice of our readers. We can do so safely, haying our
selves experienced the great benefits we derived from
its use. If proof rly applied we feel confident that it

Arnest Fink, Esq.* kindly offered his name as refer
ence in the case of his son-in-law, Mr. Gardner,who was
entirely cured by me in eight days, of a severe attack of
Inflammatory Rheumatism, so that his hands, knees and
feet were all swollen like, cushions, and he was not
able to move to save his life.'
This is to certify, that I was attacked early in March
last by the Inflammatory Rheumatism, which rendered
me entirely powerless for several days. I applied to Dr.
Pinkney for relief, and placed myself under his entire
control. The Doctor personally applied his Rheumatic
Balsam, which gave entire reliofinthe astonishing quick
period of five days. The weather during my illness and
since my recovery, has been decidedly unfavorable for
me, yet I have feltno premonitory symptomsofa return
of that disease
I take much pleasure in recommending Dr. Pinkney’s
Rheumatic Balsam, firmly believing that its use, accord
ing to directions, will produce a quick and entire cure
of Inflammatory Rheumatism.

New York, Feb-9, 1816.
Mr. Pinkney.
Dear Sir—The’extraordiiary cure which has been per
formed through your mearsaipon me, compels me as an
act of duty which I owe you, as well as a means of bene
fiting others oi my fellow citizens who may be similar
ly circumstanced, to make it known to the public, and
in doing so I assure them thtt no part of the case is ex
aggerated, and I would earneitly advise others troubled
with the same complaint, simply to give PINKEY’S
PAIN EXTRACTOR a fair trial, and they will not be
disappointed. For the last two years I have been se
riously afflicted with consumption, attended with very
severe pains in my side and ckest, a very violent cough,
ta times threatening strangulation) ana within the last
12 months I have been confined to my house as much as
six weeks at a time, previously’ being so very v/eakthat
in going to my doctors I was obliged to rest o numberof
times by the way. 1 was atteided by a number of high
ly eminent physicians, some rf whom told me I must go
the south, saying I could not l.ve in this city through the
summer and winter; and others, who sounded my lungs
at different times, and told me 1 could not live over three
or four weeks. I had taken all kinds of medicine, but to
no purpose. About ten weeks ago I was presented with
bottle of Liniment by a particular friend, called Pink
ney’s Pain Extractor, which I used according to the
directions, and I found immeciate relief, one bottle al
most having cured me, and am 1 now perfectly well.
In the above statement I have said nothing but the
Slain truth, and feeling satisfied and solemnly convinced
tat the use of PINKNEY’S PAIN EXTRACTOR has
been the means of effecting a complete cure upon me, I
recommend it to others, believing it will do others a
similar benefit; any one calling upon me can have un
doubted reference as to the facts above stated.

Greenport, July 19,1846.
Dr. Townsend— Dear Sir:—lt is with satisfaction that
I say to you, that I have recently witnessed, in several
cases, the most beneficial results from your EXTRACT
OF SARSAPARILLA. Being engaged in the practice
of medicine, I have prescribed it in several cases, and
never without benefit. In the removal of disease aris
ing from a deranged state of the digestive organs, jaun
dice, &c., it far exceeds anything of the kind ever offer
ed to the public. You will please send me two dozen,
&c. Respectfully yours,
Capt. G. W. McLean, member of the Legislature, and
late of the United States Navy, has kindly sent us the
following certificate. It tells its own story.
Rahway, Jan. 25, 1847
A year since I was taken with the Influenza, and my
whole system left in a debilitated state. I was induced
to try Dr. Townsend’s Sarsaparilla, and after taking two
or three bottles, I was very much relieved, and attribute
it entirely to the said Sarsaparilla. I have continued
taking it, and find that I improve every day. 1 believed
it saved my life, and would not be without it under any
consideration. G. W. McLEAN.
John Jackson, Esq., Editor of the Rahway Republi
can, published the above certificate, and remarks in an
editorial as follows:
C2Y" The success of Dr. Townsend’s Preparation of
Sarsaparilla appears to be one of the most extraordi
nary character. We publish to-day two certificates in
its behalf, one from Capt. McLean, of this town, and one
from the Rev. Mr. White, of Staten Island, a gentleman
well known in Rahway. Capt. McLean believes the
medicine to have saved his life, and Mr. White seems to
entertain an equally strong confidence in its efficacy.
Intelligent men like these would not praise so strongly
what they did not fully believe to be deserving.
This Certificate conclusively proves that this Sarsapk
rilla has perfect control over the most obstinate diseases
of the blood. Three persons cured in one house is un
p re ce dented.
Dr. Townsend: Dear Sir—l have the pleasure to in
form you that three of my children have been cured of
the Scrofula by the use of your excellent medicine.
They were afflicted very severely with bad sores: have
taken only four bottles; it took them away, for which I
feel myself under deep obligation. Yours respctfully,

Brooklyn, Sept 14,1846
Dr. Townsend— Dear Sir:—l was taken, a little over:
year ago, with a severe cough and pain in my side; it
increased on me very fast indeed. 1 was pronounced
by physicians to have the quick consumption. 1 raised
large quantities of bad matter, had night sweats, and—
sinking very fast—my doctor said he could do nothing
forme. 1 went to the hospital, in hope of being bene
fited, but was pronounced there as incurable. I was
now greatly distressed at the lungs, and could hardly
breathe: I soon became emaciated, and expected to die:
was confined to my bod, and was obliged to have watch
ers. Indeed, I cannpt give you any description that
would do justice to my case. I was supposed, by my
friends, to be past recovery: I had tried a great number
of remedies, and all seemed to be of no effect. 1 read
of some extraordinary cures, performed by your medi
cine, and to tell you the truth, I suspected there was
some humbug in them. But I was induced to try it; I
done so, and am very thankful I did. 1 cannot say that
1 am entirely well, but 1 am so far recovered as to be
about my businass, and hope to be entirely well in a
few weeks. Mv cough, pain in the side, and night
sweats, have left me, and 1 raise but very little, and am
fast gaining my usual strength. I feel it my duty to
give you a statement of my case, to publish, if you
PETEK BROWN, 47 Little st., Brooklyn.
This Extract of Sarsaparilla has been expressly pre- ■
pared in reference to P emale Complaints. No female 1
should neglect to take it, as it is a certain preventive for
any of the numerous and horrible diseases to which
they are subject, ft is valuable for those who are ap
proaching womanhood, as it is calculated to assist na
ture by quickening the blood and invigorating the sys- <
tern, indeed, this medicine is invaluable for all the <
delicate diseases to which women are subject.
It braces the whole system, renews permanently the
natural energies—by removing the impurities of the j
blood—by so far stimulating the system as to produce
no subsequent relaxation, which is the case of most t
medicines taken for female weakness and disease. <
You who have Pale Complexions, Dull Eyes, Blotches
on the Face, Rough Skin, or Freckles, and are “ out ot
spirit,’-'use a bottle or two of Dr. Townsend’s Sarsapa
rilla It will cleanse the Blood, remove the Freckles
and Blotches, and give you animation, sparkling eyes,
fine spirits, and beautiful complexion—all of which are j
of immense value to unmarried ladies.
Dr. Townsend’s Sarsaparilla is a sovereign and speedy 1
cure for incipient Consumption, Barrenness, Leucor 1
rhoea or Whites, obstructed or difficult Menstruation, 1
Incontinency of Urine, or involuntary discharge there- i
of, and for the general prostration of the system, no mat- ’
ter whether the result of inherent disease, or causes '
produced by irregularity, illness, or accident.
Nothing can be more surprising than its invigorating '
effects upon the human system. Persons, all weakness ‘
and lassitude before taking it, at once become robust 1
and full of ene-rgy under its influence. It immediately >
counteracts the nervelessness of the female frame 1
which is the great cause of barrenness. ’ 1
It will not be expected of us, in cases of so delicate a
nature, to exhibit certificates of cures t erformed : but '
we can assure the afflicted that hundreds if cases have '
been reported to us. i
Coxsackir, Sept. 23, 1845.
Dr. Townsend: To all whom,this may concern—This
is to certify that my wife used one bottle of your Sar
saparilla previous to a critical event, under the most
alarming and delicate circumstances,' being troubled
with the dropsy, swelling of the feet, nervous affections
and very much debilitated; with my persuasion, and '
the recommendation of those who had used it, she was >
induced to try it, with little or no faith; and suffice it to
say, the medicine had the happy and desired effect, not :
only during the said period, but after the expiration ot
one week of its use, the dropsy and nervous affection '
gave way to an astonishing degree, and her health is ;
now better than it had beeu for a long time previous.
If this will be of any service to you, or any one who
doubts the success of the medicine, you are entirely
welcome to it.
I subscribe myself your most obedient and obliged
servant, S. S. JAMESON.

Dr. Townsend: Dear Sir—My wife has been, for seve
ral years, afflicted with Rheumatism. She has tried
many different remedies to obtain some relief, but all to
no purpose. She was finally induced t by seeing vour
advertisement, to give your Sarsaparilla a trial. I was
also, (together with a man in my employ,) badly troubl
ed with Piles, and by using a small quantity of your
Sarsaparilla, our complaint was completely cured. I
consider it one of the best of medicines, and would
advise all who are afflicted to give it a trial.

New York, July 22.1816
Dr. Townsend: Dear Sir— Mv wife has been afflicte
with a Disease of the Heart, and with a terrible Rup
ture for over fifteen years, the greater part of the time
She has been troubled with Shortness of Breath and
great Fluttering of the Heart, which has been very dis
tressing, and has frequently been unable to eave her
bed. The Rupture was very large and severe. She
tried almost every remedy for such cases, with but lit
tle benefit. When she had taken but three bottles of
your excellent medicine, she was entirely relieved of
the Disease of the Heart, and the Rupture has almost
entirely disappeared.
She has also had the Dropsy, and was very much
swollen. We had no idea that she could be so bene
fitted, as she had such a complication of diseases. But
it has, as strange as it may appear, relieved her of the
dropsy. lam aware that the statement is so strange, as
to appear almost like a fiction, but it is. nevertheless
sober reality. Your Sarsaparilla is certainly a valuable
medicine, and should be used by every one that is suf
fering as we have been. If any disbelieve this account,
they are at liberty to call at my house, and have ocular
demonstration. Yours respectfully.

Dr. Townsend having recently heard that two or
three physicians and several druggists have asserted
that his Sarsaparilla contained mercury, has made the
following affidavit. Whether these physicians and
druggists supposed it contained mercury from the sin
gular energy it acts upon particular diseases, or out of
envy, he knows not.

and a continued pain in my side, owing to evening ex

am now prepared to give it. I have used it in my prac

virtues, and the reasonable price at which you sell it.
In scrofulous affections, cutaneous eruptions generally,
indigestion, costive habits, and liver complaints, 1 am
much pleased with its effects. In these complaints, or
any other where Sarsaparilla indicated, I can with con

FOR six years I was afflicted with a disease of the
eyes, which so affected my vision that in the night
time 1 was utterly unable to distinguish any object, the
disorder being, as known to Occulists, “night blind
ness.” Being in the Marine service, 1 was placed in the
hospital, under the treatment of its most skilful stir
geons, but obtained no relief. Apprehensive, from cer
tain indications which manifested themselves, of a still
worse affliction of the eyes, I was advised by Captain
Richardson (truly the sailor’s friend) and several other
gentlemen, to apply to Dr. Wheeler, the Occulist, of 29
Greenwich street, who, they said, could alone restore
me. Thanks to his skill and attention I was entirely
cured by him after an attendance of only eighteen
visits, and I now make this grateful acknowledgment
or the great benefits received from him.

I? OR cleansing the teeth and gums and communicat

Paste of orris and other fragrant ingredients, has been
acknowledged far superior to any other dentifrice.—
Being compounded of astringent materials, it hardens
the gums and makes them adhere more firmly to the
teeth, thereby assisting materially in preserving the
latter from premature decay. This Paste also combines
anti-putrescent and detergent properties in an eminent
degree and its frequent use is a sure means of keeping
the breath and mouth in a sweet and healthy condition.

sure of hearing Miss Josephine Bramson at a private

Young Lady of her age play on the Piano Porte with all
the rapidity, the precision, the steady time-keeping,
and the taste of an adult professor; she throws more
force also, in the volumes of her tones, than we could
have supposed her physical strength could accomplish.

Miss Josephine Bramson has been for some time a
Teacher of Music in my family on the Piano, and I am
authorised by my two daughters (both ot competent
years to judge) to say, that among the teachers they
have had, (all of them in good standing as professors)
she is most competent to teach. They tell me also, that
one quarter of her teaching, has been worth to them
three of some others. Her modesty and musical talent,
in my poor judgment, with the fact that her precocity
of skill, gives her a rank that older members of the pro
fession might envy, recommends her to those who
would have their daughters proficients on the Piano

then, is best calculated to benefit the hair, which has a
tendency to equalize the circulation in the scalp to
stimulate the skin, and nourish the bulbs that lie imme

superior for this purpose to any merely artificial pre'

use has been strongly recommended by those who have
thoroughly studied the constitution and physiology of
