Court of Sessions. — At the opening of the court
yesterday, Mr. John Graham, as counsel tor
James M. Smith, arose and stated that his cli
ent had been cited to appear before the Sessions,
to show cause why he should not be expelled
from that court, for an alledged contempt, &c.
Mr. Graham then, under leave, proceeded to
argue the case, bringing in any quantity oi law
to prove that, ~ . ,
Ist. No contempt had been committed.
2d. If there had been, it could not amount to
a contempt, since there was no Court ot sessions
sitting at the time the objectionable language
was used, and ... • ?
3d. That the Sessions had no cognizance ot
the affair whatever. Mr. Smith being a Coun
sellor at the bar of the Supreme Court, and that
under the new Constitution and laws recently
enacted, that tribunal alone could have jurisdic
tion. . .
Recorder Scott seemed to acquiesce in these
propositions, as did also the District Attorney,
who acknowledged that the case presented some
new aspects, and intimated a determination to
bring Mr. Smith before the Supreme Court, on
a mandamus, to answer.
Mr. Smith, who was in court, made some ob
servations, which were understood to be, that he
should hold somebody responsible. The question
still remains unanswered —“ IVhat did Counsellor
Smith, say to Recorder Scott ?”
Among those called up for sentence, was the
Hon. Michael Walsh, late editor of the Subter
ranean, and at present member of Assembly
from this city. The court imposed upon him a
fine of $25, tor a libel upon Hiram P. Hastings.
A Haul from the “ Old Brewery.On Fri
day night officers Gilchrist, Owens, Wilson and
Connell, of the 6th Ward, made a descent upon
that hot bed of vice and misery, on the rive
Points, known as the “Old Brewery, and
ousted one Louisa Mitchell, a keeper of a disor
derly crib, in that degraded rookery, the resort
of young prostitutes, and, in fact, the manufac
tory of large numbers of the degraded beings
who crowd the purlieus of that sink of iniquity.
They also took in custody three girls of tender
age, who had recently become inmates of this
infamous brothel, viz ; Ann Burns, Mary Leary,
and Bridget Brewer, together with the mother of
the latter ! and an old cruiser named Fanny Hun
ter, who, probably, acts as a decoy duck for the
establishment.
The debased mother, Ellen Brewer, with her :
daughter, Bridget, were permitted to depart, they
being discharged by Aid. Gilmartin. The others '
were locked up for reformation, if possible. 1
Opening of Eleventh street and Police Reform. ■
—The city fathers will probably consider both <
these remarkable operations on Monday night. 3
If Eleventh street is opened from the Bowery (
to Broadway, the Grace Church parsonage goes ,
down. If the present system of Police is abol
ished, roguery will rise. This may be called (
striking the balance, and making a fair average.
Arrests for Petty Thefts James Montgome- t
ry, by officer Cannon, of the 18th, for stealing j
sand. . i
M&rgaret Whiting, by officer Taylor, of the (
13th, for stealing a pair of woolen socks from t
No. 396 Grand street. Margaret made her es
cape early yesterday morning, by crawling «
through the tan light, over the door ofher cell. j
Diana Manuel, by officer Van Gieson, of the
Sth, for stealing jewelry, silver ware, &c., from ’
694 Houston street.
Frederick Watson, by officer Bogert, of the J
Sth, for stealing a razor, &c. 1
Eire. — At a quarter past two o’clock on Friday 1
afternoon, a fire broke out in the store No. 188
Canal street, which, before it was extinguished, 1
nearly destroyed the stock. The conflagration’ J
was confined to the building in which it origi- 1
nated.

The Anglo-Spanish paper, La Verdad, I
comes forth with its usual polite, but extermi- J
natmg, dissections of the beauties of monarchy £
in general, and the Spanish monarchy m parti- s
cular. The other Spanish paper, the Eco de Eu- i
ropa declared such principles were perfectly J
shocking, and s® horribly at variance with its {
“instincts and convictions,” that it thought it t
but “rational and just” to make war to the I
knife on this ntal apropos “Truth,” (La Per- j
dad.) Madame La Verdad replied, as calmly as j
a spring morning, that she would be delighted to t
oblige her well-beloved neighbor. Eco, in any t
way—with peace or war—but, just as a matter of 1
sisterly curiosity, she would lik eto know the co- J
lor of his principles, that she might keep out ol t
their way. Senor Eco has not found time him- £
self yet, or is not ready to shew them, and so for 1
the present the matter stands.
The Morning Star —The new penny morn- (
ing paper of Williams Brothers, is announced to J
appear to-morrow morning. It will be of a lar- (
ger size than anyone cent paper now issued, will <
contain a great quantity of reading, and will be ]
conducted, we have no doubt, in the most ener- (
getic manner. 1
The brothers Williams have thus far been i
successful in all their undertakings. The pre- 1
sent one is much the greatest, but they have ca- 1
pital, tact and industry, and talent is the most ]
plentiful and the cheapest of all that is necessary .
in a newspaper. 1
Just now a wide field isopen, which this new ’
candidate for popular favor is likely to occupy. (
We wish it every success.
Great Attraction.— Palmo’s Opera House.
—We understand that Monday and Tuesday
evenings are to be the last of the exhibitions of 1
Model Artists at this theatre. The. prices are
raised as you will perceive by advertisement.
This company, although decidedly the best we
have seen has not been patronized as it should
have been. It appears that the exhibition, for ,
public taste was a century behind hand, as all ■
those small places which did not possess half the <
merit were crowded to overflowing, however, it
seems they are resolved on going a century be- ■
fore the age, and are determined to please the
public at any cost. We have no doubt they will
bring crowded houses, as they have plenty of
attractions held forth. See small bills.
Model Artists.—The Grand Jury have pre
sented the living statuary and classical tableau
people, as not good for nice morals. We can’t
undertake to discuss thematter to-day, but rather
prefer to allow all sensible people to see and
judge for themselves.
To-morrow night there were will be a exhibi
tion at Palrno’s, in Chambers street, another at
Pintex’ (the Odeon,) in Broadway. A third at
the Temple of the Muses, in Canal street.
Stow’s Asiatic Elixer, whatever may be
its nature or ingredients, is respectably endors
ed and recommended as one oi the best of those
medicines which aid the healing powers of na
ture, in the cure of diseases of the organs of
respiration. Full particulars may be found in
our advertising columns.
A good, patriotic woman, Mrs. Rebecca
Knapp, died lately in Baltimore, in her 87th
year. This lady was a native of Philadelphia,
and during the revolution she supplied the Amer
can prisoners of war with provisions from her
own table.
Major Edward Webster, of the Massa
chusetts Regiment, and son of Hon. Daniel
Webster, has died, near Mexico, of fever.
Ball.—The eighth annual ball of Howard
Engine Co. No. 34, will take place on Wednes
day evening next—and a very brilliant gathering
it will be. Our firemen always give dashing
balls.
George Robertson, whom every one
knows, or should know, as standing among the
first in his profession of teaching all to dance,
gives one of his elegant and recherche assemblies
at the Shakspeare Hotel; and as he invites all
his friends to attend, there must be a splendid
ball, “in spite of wind or weather.”
The learned Canary Birds, who has not
seen them'l We advise all who have not to go
and see them There can not be a more inno
cent, as well as wonderful amusement than the
performances of these knowing little birds. We
understand that some of them have been taught
for five and some for the period of ten years.
They are to be seen every day at 10£ A. M.,
3and7P. M. Sunday and Monday excepted.
Dunlap’s Hotel.—The traveling and board
ing public will be glad to see, that Major Dunlap
has opened a very fine hotel at 135 Fulton st.—
Nature made Dunlap for a landlord, and he who
patronizes 135 Fulton street, will only act ac
cording to nature. Good beds, good attendance,
good wines, constitute a “ Summum bbnum.”
Malone Raymond 'and his talented
family continue theiir Irish Evenings on Mon

DR. BRANDRETH ASKS PHYSICIANS ARE
THESE THINGS SO?-Ifthe body daily receives a
proper amount of nutrition, and daily expels the
t worn-out parts by the sensible and insensible eva
f cuants, health is the natural consequence.
All medicine can do is to secure these results.
' Therefore, that medicine which does secure them
is universal m its powers for good to the human body.
Let us see. The blood becomes loaded with impuri
ties, when from any cause the pores of the skin do not
perform their functions properly. A sudden change
of weather may occasion this when the humors are
, too redundant; want of proper cleanliness, by per
i mitting perspired particles to remain upon the skin,
. has the effect ic Some instances to retard insensible
perspiration; the same effect follows the use of greasy
matter to the skin, as ointments and the like. All
causes that impede insensible perspiration are sure
to occasion great disorder in the body. Costiveness
occasions the greatest impediment to insensible per
spiration of all other causes combined. Because the
matters which have once been thrown into the
bowels, are only those which nature could not make
sufficiently fine to go off any other way save by the
bowels. fWell. These matters, instead of being daily
evacuated, are retained in the system, and re-ab
sorbed again into the circulation. But they cannot
perspire; they only load the blood with impurities;
only gum up the pores; they can never go out save
by the bowels, or by tumors, boils, or some eruptions
of the skin—good physicians know this universally
as well as Dr. Brandreth. But the great difficulty in
all these cases of costivqness, in all these cases of re
absorption is, that the blood not only becomes con
taminated, but that the pores of the skin become so
clogged with gummy matters that great danger to the
body occurs, For, be it known to all men, that actual
experiment has demonstrated that in twenty-one
hours, in a healthy condition of the skin, we part, by
insensible perspiration, with four times as much im
purities from the body, as we do by all the sensible
evacuations together in the same time. We cannot,
then, fail to see the terrible consequences which
must soon result to the body, when the pores are,
from any cause, retarded in the full exercise of their
powers. The first thing which follows a state of cos- 4 '
tiveness, is a cold shivering, perhaps head-ache; on
the lungs there may be oppression, and very soon
fever will follow, if it do not accompany the preced
ing symptoms.
In health we perspire about two ounces her hour.
In sickness arising from the above causes, we scarce
ly perspire at all. Consider, then, the enormous
amount of matter which must be thrown into the
blood. Of course we may expect severe pains; some
times death will take place before we can obtain an
operation on the bowels. But, my friends, instead of
using Brandreth’s Pills, shall we use those remedies
which carry death and destruction in their train 'I
Shall we use Balsams, Lozenges or Ointments'? These
means may prove palliating, may reduce the amount
of suffering, may throw these matters from the point
where the pain is; may, in fact, cause the humors
which produce the pain to be thrown again into the
circulation. But, my friends, it is not out of the
body. It may settle upon a vital part, and death be
the consequence at once. No remedies are safe un
less they take out disease in a palpable form. When
we have pain in any part of the body, that pain is
caused by the retention of those matters which ought
to have come away by the bowels. They must come
by that channel before health can be established. Be
sensible then; use those remedies only which bodily (
take out from the bowels and circulation all those
matters which have been retained beyond the time
Nature designed or health permitted. And for this .
purpose Brandreth’s Pills are all-sufficient. Let it be j
understood, that in all cases, if possible, they should j
be used on an empty stomach. The Pills will have a <
better effect. Not but they are perfectly safe at ahy ’
time, they are so. The object is to insure the great- j
est amount of good,and this is accomplished by taking .
them on an empty stomach. Because the object is not
to accelerate digestion, but to remove the crudities j
from the blood; and the Pills, always passing into the !
blood, do so more easily, and with greater comfort to *
the body, when the stomach has nothing to oppose to i
them in their passage through it to the first intestines, j
and so into the circulation. For when the Pills are i
swallowed, they first pass into the stomach, and hav- s
ing been dissolved there, next pass into the small in- J
testines, whence the lacteals suck them up and pass ]
them along, with a portion of the chyle, into the veins ;
first, and afterwards into the arteries. I suppose
they, the Pills, impart an extra power to arterial i
blood to deterge morbid matters wherever it may J
find them; and also passing such morbid matters from ;
the arteries to the veins, which bring them to the
liver, pancreas and kidneys; in consequence of which 1
these organs become more vigorous in their secre- ;
tions, and expel not only the crudities which have J
been thrown into them from all parts of the body, but i
also those which they themselves contained previous ’
to the collection of crudities or impure or matters, by )
the LIFE-GIVING QUALITIES OF THE BRANDRETH’S PILLS;
and which is being accomplished, when is felt that
peculiar filling of the bowels which warn they are to ’
be moved. s
The ashes, or worn out parts, are in health possess- !
ed of a certain acid principle, which periodically oc
casions the alvine evacuation. This quality is the
result of the corrupt, or death principle, under the
control of the life principle Now, what have we to i
do but keep this control to be ensured of our health? !
No Ship Fever can hurt—no Influenza—no Small Pox j
—no Cholera—no Inflammation—no Bronchial Disease
get seated to stop your voice before your breath; in
fact, barring accidents, your life requires no insur- <
ance—it will run its natural course to the end. And
this is all easy— Brandreth’s Pills have only to be ;
used to ensure these results. This is one of
THE TRUTHS OF THE DAY.
Let the wise ponder upon it. The idea of two spirits
—the one good and the other evil—having power over :
man, is thus given a corporal application; and what :
is better, we know how to assist the good principle—
the blood—to conquer the bad humors, and thereby
occasion health and cheerfulness; when before there
was nothing but sadness and despair. I have told you
the truth. 1818.

CENTS.—The great reduction of 50 cents in the price
of gold pens just made by Beers and Clark, 25 John
street, up stairs, seems not at all to please some of
their rivals, but we can assure them that their cus
tomers like it. We know of no good reason why we
should be compelled to pay such high prices for gold
pens. With the low prices of Beers and Clark, the
gold pen will soon come into general use, and all
dealers in the article will gain more by the increased
demand than they can lose by reducing prices. Gold
pens repaired, exchanged or re-pointed.
HOW SINGULAR
It is that some people will neglect using IT, and
become stoop-shouldered with the straining efforts of
their pulmonary belchings, and when you ask them
if they have the Consumption a hectic flush o’er
spreads their palid countenances, and they unhesita
tingly reply (through doubt and fear of THE FACT)
“ well no, it is merely
A COLD SETTLED ON THE LUNGS-A SLIGHT
COLD.”
Their carelessness has verged into a self-soothing
modesty.
How delusive is this very same so-called “ slight”
cold.
IT IS
Positively good fora “ slight” cold; IT creates ex
pectoration, and relieves the lungs from the accumu
lating mucous, or poisonous matter—the bronchial
tubes* cease their natural flow and become choked
and are sluggish to perform their legitimate functions;
IT ASSISTS NATURE
BY THE NATURAL MEANS—LIFE-GIVING

understandable to the most common mind without

NO BRONCHIAL DISEASE

It is in truth these acrid humors which are the oc

Piles and Costiveness; all Fever and Ague; all Dys

DR. RALPH'S PILLS.
THE UNIVERSAL, DOMESTIC VEGETABLE
MEDICINE,
WHICH being founded on the only principle in
nature on which such a remedy can be safely
and conscientiously recommended to the world, viz:
the connexion which all diseases have with the organ
of digestion, is therefore
PROPER IN ALL CASES
and alone s ufficient for the cure of most.
a few remarks on constipation of the bowels and
THE DISORDERS RESULTING FROM ITS NEGLECT.
Few persons are aware of the evils arising from a
costive habit of the bowels, or that it is the cause in
their own persons, of many of the complaints un
der which they suffer. Even Apoplexy and many
serious disorders of the head are among this number;
so also is Dyspepsia, and where costiveness is not the
only cause oi this distressing malady, it is always an
aggravating one. The same remark applies to dis
eases of the Liver, the Lungs, the Kidnies;—the blood,
loaded with impurities, has to circulate through
these tender structures, which it cannot do long with
out producing obstruction and disease in them. Now,
the source and origin of these impurities is clearly
shown to consist in a derangement of the stomach,
liver and bowels, in other words, in
A DISORDERED CONDITION OF THE ORGANS
OF DIGESTION.
This is a matter of very considerable importance,
for there aye persons who have a daily movement of :
the bowels, and therefore conclude that their action
is healthful, although the evacuations are scanty, of i
a dark color, and costive;—such persons are laboring
under great deception, and little think that many of
the complaints they suffer, especially those of the
head,—as headache, dullness of mind, &c , arise from ■
this circumstance. These dry and hard masses have
always been accumulating in the large intestine ox* •
colon for several days—so that the offensive and fluid i
humors, with which they were at first charged, have !
been absorbed and carried into the blood!" Now, it is
confidently asserted, and the testimonial of many
very eminent persons, (besides those below), will be
published from time to time, in proof that the most i
certain, safe and natural means of obviating this state :
of the bowels, is found in Dr Ralph’s Universal Vege- 1
table Pills, and medicine which, though unadvertised 1
for the last few years, has been in extensive use.
But, the consequences of a costive habit do not stop

would direct attention.
In a letter, dated Washington City, D. C., Aug. 20,
1838, the
REV. C. C. PARKS,
(pastor of Navy Yard Baptist Church) says, in con
clusion: “I have had reason to bless God and thank
you, that 1 was made acquainted with, and used your
medicine.” (This was a case of Dyspepsia.)
PROFESSOR WALDO,
Late teacher of Greek and Oratory, in the High
School in the City of New York, says:
“ 1 know not what greater earthly good, a kind i
Providence has conferred upon me than an acquain
tance with this medicine.” (Also a case of Dyspepsia.) <

Dr. Joseph Ralph: '
I feel in duty bound to certify that, having used ■
your pills personally and in my family, for many ’
years, I consider them the best universal remedy 1
have ever found for almost all kinds of complaints; 1
and lam decidedly of the opinion that they will do '
all that they are recommended to do. 1 not only con- 1
sider them a Sovereign Remedy for most disorders,
but perfectly safe and harmless; and 1 cordially re- 1

NE W AND IMPORTANT DISCOVERY
DR. J. X. CHABERT,
WELL KNOWN AS THE FIRE KING!
I J OR THE CURE OF THE COUP, every species
Consumption, Asthma, Whooping Cough, and
all Bronchial Affections.
Dr. Chabert, for the last six years, has been parti
cularly interested in diseases of the Chest, and has,
after months of laborious study and experiments, dis
covered a new and valuable preparation oi Naptha,
the medical properties of which are tar superior and
much more efficacious than any other Naptha in use.
This medicine has been attended with the greatest
success in upwards of one hundred cases, in no in
stance has it failed in producing instant relief, pro
curing quiet and refreshing sleep, abating the cough
and strengthening the patient. If taken during the
first stages of Censuxiption, it entirely eradicates and
destroys all predisposition lor the disease. Two
doses will generally do found sufficient to repel the
most violent attacks of Coup. For Whooping Cough
it is surpassed by no other medicine, as it will efiect a
cure in two or three weeks. This valaable prepara
tion is manufactured from the bark of the Cadis plant,
which flourishes abundantly in the south of Spain, on
the sea coast; it yields, on distillation, pyroligneous
acid Naptha, empyreumatic oil and a resinous ex
tract. The Naptha, when chemically seperated from
other combinations, and in conjunction with other
valuable medicines, has been proved not only the
most efficacious, but the only cure for diseases ofthe
lungs. In Ulceration of the Lungs, the effect is most
remarkable, producing granulation, and cicatriza
tion—the same as is produced by the healing process
of sores and ulcers m any other part of the body—
with this difference that the new skin on external
surfaces is more sensitive, and easier torn or injured,
but in ulceration of the lung, and cicatrization, pro
duced by this medicine, is firm and cannot be torn,
The substance of the lung on either side will give
way, rather than the cicatrix, or new skin will yield.
The above properties of this valuable medicine is not
mere hypothesis but plain and substantial facts,
proved by numerous post mortem examinations.
From the root of the Cadis plant, Dr. Chabert ex
tracts his Empyreumatic Oil, so long known, and uni
versally admired and acknowledged by the most emi
nent physicians in Europe and the United States, as a
Vermifuge, destroying Worms in the humaai and ani
mal systems, in whatever part of the body they may
be located. (See the Cyclopedia of Practical Medi
cine, published in Philadelphia, vol. 4, pp 720—743.)

AMALGAMATED SILVER, STEEL AND

WARRANTED NOT TO CORRODE.
H. B - HERTS & SON, hav
ing been manyyears engaged
the Manufacture of Me
tai*o Pens, and during that
having devoted their un
easing attention to improv
ing and perfecting that useful and necessary article,
the result of their unceasing efforts and numerous ex
periments has been the construction of a Pen. on a
principle entirely new, combining all the advantages
ofthe elasticity and clearness of the Quill with six
times the durability ofthe Steel Pen; and thus entire
ly obviating the only objection tfiat has hitherto ex
isted against the use of the Steel Pens.
This Pen will be found an invaluable article in
Offices as they never need wiping, also BanJ<s and
Schools as being made with Circular Points, they will
not spatter nor cut the thinnest paper, and are war
ranted anti corrosive. _ , ,
The following is from Mr. O. B. Goldsmith r the cele
brated American penman:
Messrs. Herts & Son.— Gentlemen: I have used
your unsurpassible metalio pens in my academy for
several weeks, and believe that whenever their mer
its are tested their very superior quality, together
with the low price at which you offer them, must in
sure you very large sales—Please send me 20 gross of
the same quality as the last.
I am gentlemen faithfully yours,
O. B. GOLDSMITH,
289 Broadway.
New York, June 18th, 1846.
Extract from the New York Daily Globe.
The reputation of steel pens has been much injured
by those manufacturers who have used poor and inef
ficient materials. We are. however pleased to learn
that the pens of H. B. Herts & Son, Birmingham, Eng
land. are of a superior character, being constructed
of the best of metals which are not at all affected by
the acids of inks. They are of new construction, and
will retain their elasticity and preserve their points
better than any in use. We have been using these
pens some time, and take great pleasure in recom
mending them to the public being quite anti-corro
sive. They are to be had from most of the stationers.
Extract from the Boston Courier.
“ Silver, Steel and Platina Pens.”— Messrs. Herts
& Son, manufacture excellent pens from the above
named metals, which are warranted not to corrode
and are much more durable than any steel pens. All
interested are referred to their advertisement. They
are for sale by most of the booksellers.
Extract from the Boston Atlas.
“Herts’ Pens.” —We have received and tried the
metallic pens made by Messrs. Herts & Son and which
are advertised in this paper. We find them very ex- 1
cellent, and believe them to be all they are set forth
to be in the advertisement.
Extract from the Boston Daily Star.
We have received from the manufacturers, H. B.
Herts & Son, England, a lot of metallic
pens of a new construction, which are not affected by
the acids of ink. They certainly write better, give a
better flow of ink and preserve these qualities better
than any in use.. A prime article oi metalic pens,
such as will retain their point with a steady flow of
ink and give an elastic touch, is certainly very de
sirable and worth the additional cost necessary to
afford these qualities. The manufacturers of steel
pens have ruined the reputation of the article by
using poor materials. Messrs. Herts & Son, think they
have hit the right tack and we certainly think they
have. Writers should try their new article.

CONSUMPTION CAN BE CURED,
BY THE USE OF DR. ROGERS’ COMPOUND
SYRUP OF
LIVERWORT AND TAR’!
THE GREAT REMEDY FOR CONSUMPTION OF THE LUNGS,
SPITTING OF BLOOD, COUGHS, COLDS, INFLUENZA,
ASTHMA, PAIN IN THE SIDE, BRONCHITIS, WHOOP
ING COUGH AND ALL PULMONARY AFFECTIONS.
THIS invaluable medicine not only gives immedi
ate relief in the most distressing Coughs and
Colds, but from the testimony of such men as Dr.
Wm. Richards, Dr. H. Cox, Hon. Judge Wm. Burke,
(for 20 years Postmaster in Cincinnati,) and a host of
other Physicians, Lawyers, Judges, &c., it is still
making truly remarkable CURES OF CONSUMP
TION. We ask those who are afflicted with Diseased
Lungs to call on the Agents named below and get a
pamphlet, and see the number of remarkable Cures
this medicine has made in Cincinnati alone, and
those, too, of men well known, and of high standing.
The Physicians have at last come out and admitted
that it REALLY CURES, after everything else has
failed. Dr. Wm. Richards says that it cured Mr. C.
Wade, after all other medicines had failed!
Dr. H. Cox, a Physician extensively known, (and
late Professor in the Medical College in Cincinnati.)
says that Miss Belt was given up to DI E WITH CON
SUMPTION, by a number of Physicians, yet he en <
tirely cured her with DR. ROGERS’ LIVERWORT
AND TAR.
The Hon. Ex-Judge H. Morse, of the Courts of
Ohio, at Cincinnati, says—" I am well acquainted with
Dr. Hiram Cox, of Cincinnati, 0., he having been my j
family Physician for many years, and can cheerfully
say that 1 have as much, or more confidence in him, ]
and his skill as a Physician, than any man living.”
(Signed) HENRY MORSE.
Dr. Cox is also the Physician of the Hon. Judge (
James Saffin, late City Marshal of Cincinnati.
Notice, we say again, in the pamphlets, the number
of cures m Cincinnati alone. Mrs. Childs, Mrs. Plum- j
mer, D. Ludlow, Esq., and Mr. G. Whitehead, were
thought to be m the last stages of Consumption!! j
Yet this same medicine has restored them to health.
It has made as great cures wherever it has been j
sold; and we solemnly say, there is not a newspaper <
that could publish half of the certificates of cures ,
that this medicine has made. 1
Mrs. Harriet Rowe, of Stanton, Ohio, was so low j
with Consumption that the Doctors said she could
not live more than one day longer—even her friends
come in to see her die! Yet Dr. ROGERS’LIVER- (
WORT AND TAR entirely cured her.

A SHORT SURGICAL LECTURE ON PILES.
ADDRESSED TO THE UNINITIATED.
THE medical name for the Piles, is Haemorrhoids,
and they are situated within, and around the ori
fice Annus, causing itching.uneasiness and great pain,
in and about the parts affected,—they are invariably
the precursors of that dreadful and often fatal disease
called Fistula in Ano, this name means nothing
more nor less than a hole, (caused of course by the
disease,) and this hole when once established, cannot
be cured except by a surgical operation; bear in
mind that neglected Piles will establish this hole, and
now my good friend ask yourself, could you bear
such an operation, as it will be necessary to per
form, to eradicate this hole—you cannot realize the
horrors of it, as you are ignorant of the extent of
such an operation—but you can readily picture to
yourself the agony ol mind you will endure, even at
the approach of that skillful but necessarily harsh
surgeoil, Doctor Mott,—coming at you a posteriori,
with his Scalpel and Bistouri, the reflection is too
painful to be followed, but the whole can be avoided
by the application of a small case of BOWYER’S
SPIKENARD OINTMENT, these are the most irre
fragible evidences of its perfect success in the cure
of Piles, Propapsus Uteri, or Falling of the Womb.

SPRING STYLES.
DEVOE’S HAT AND CAP MANUFACTORY,
(FORMERLY KNOWN A3 THE PHCENIX ESTABLISHMENT.)
NO. 103 FULTON STREET.
The proprietor of this celebrated establish
ment is constantly demonstrating the fact that a
4££xiUßeaver Hat can be sold S 3 50, and a Moleskin
Hat for S 3 superior to four-fifths, and equal to the very
best $5 hat sold in the city or elsewhere, equal in
style, beauty of shape, completeness of finish, neat
ness of lining, and every other requisite whatever.
This fact is the result of system which, if more gene
rally adopted, would ]iut an end to much ruinous ex
travagance, upon which so many tradesmen have
made shipwreck of their hopes. The success ofthe
above Hat and Qap Manufactory proves conclusively
that a low rent, the utmost economy in expenditures,
quick sales for cash, with small profits, can compete
triumphantly with the most glaring and cost! y estab
lishments of the day, and the sacrifice of no point,
important or unimportant, in the manufactory of a
hat is necessary to enable the proprietor to warrant a
saving of from $3 50 to $6 per annum to each of his
patrons.

TABLEAUX VIVANTS by the MODEL ARTISTE S
ON MONDAY, February 21st and every evening
through the week—The gross charges of immo
rality that have lately been made against all exhibi
tions of Tableaux Vivants, without discrimination,
impel the managers of the Temple of the Muses, in
self-defence, to notice them, and in refutation of these
base and interested sTANDERs they invite the visits
of the most fastidious, whose impartial verdicts, they
are confident, will be given in favor of these DELI
CATE and REFINED pictures of the CLASSIC and
BEAUTIFUL.
Only in the prurient fancy of a diseased mind can
anything be found on which to hinge the shadow of a
suspicion of the purity of these groupings, and the
increased number ol entirely new ana original Tab
leaux which the managers intend presenting during
the present week, will offer to every one an oppor
tunity of freely deciding on their merits as living em
bodiments of the Graceful and Pictureeque.
The unceasing exertions of Mons. Guuilliaume to
please the public meet with such generons patronage
that he continues to devote his untiring energies and
artistic talent to the production of Attitudes and
Groupings that have thus far distanced all ♦competi
tors, and the managers have his assurance that wnile
his taubleaux shall in future possess all the piquante
and recherche attraction of his prior efforts, they will
for originality, and beauty of design, compete with
the most celebrated tableaux ever pronuced in this
or any other country. The bills of tne day will con
tain a list of attradtions well worthy of perusal.
The programmer'll! be changed every evening.

DANIEL SWEENY,
Late of 11 Ann street, New York.
Removed to 66 Chatham street.-tiio un
dersigned, at the approach ofthe travelling sea
son, deems it necessary to apprise those who may
not be aware of the fact, that, m order to extend his
business, as well as his limits of accommodation, he
has removed to 66 Chatham street, within a few doors
of Chambers, and nearly opposite Duane, where he
has opened a Saloon, on precisely the same plan as
his former one ; but m extent, comfort and airiness,
not surpassed by any in the city. The enlargement di
his sphere has been demanded by the increasing pat
ronage ofthe public, and his present location has been
selected as a central position for citizens as well as
strangers. He therefore solicits the attention ofthe
public, both resident and transient, to his new posi
tion, where they will find not only the su-bstantiaLele
ments of life in every required form, but each of a
quality that has secured him the reputation he now
enjoys, and which he is determined to maintain.
As the above is the only establishment he either
owns or is in any manner nominally or otherwise con
nected with, he hopes his friends and the public wil
remember that this is the only saloon of the underl
signed, and sole proprietor.

STOWS ASIATIC ELIXIR:
UMOjfe For the cure for Coughs, Sp itting o
Blood and diseases of the lungs in gene-
BHbB ral—There is no disease that afflicts
the human family that is calcuted to
RMM excite more alarm than Haemoptysis,
or spitting of blood from the lungs. It
HEgßi is considered by physicians generally
JmSSm as a precursor of that terrible scourge
of our race, pulmonary consumption,
MBKA which, if not checked in its earliest
stages, will inevitably lead to a fatal re
suit. The above named medicine,
which is now for the first time intro
duced before the public, has been used
■ in the private practice of a celebrated
KgOjgJßffiMg physician for the last twenty-five years
and its success during that time has
been such, as to induce the proprietor
to place it within the reach of all those
who are in any way affected with the
ggSSSO foltowing diseases: coughs, shortness
KXStttolg of oreath, pains in the sides or chest,
spitting of blood from the lungs, incipi-
I ent bronchitis, and in fact every disease
leading to or connected with pulmona
ry consumption.
nSHRin Clergymen, public speakers and
I singers, who are subject to shortness
f 01 * >rea th> exhaustion, etc., after hav-
ing exercised the voice during the
ITOIESwMB evening, will find much relief from
MM this medicine, by taking a dose of it
IMMMBssna just previous to retiring to rest.
Recommendation from Rev. Mr. Beach of the Me
thodist denomination:
, „„ , Brooklyn, July 3,1847.
) In the month of February, 1839, while preaching in
- the western part of the State of New York, I con
i tracted a severe cold, which settled upon my lungs,
- and rendered me incapable for a while of performing
, my pastorial duties. While suffering from this cola,
I was attacked with Haemoptysis (spitting of blood);
, my right lung was found to be ulcerated, I became
- much emaciated, and was supposed by my physician
to be rapidly approaching the grave. I became re
lieved, however, and in the month of December fol
’ lowing I again commenced preaching, and was able
to perform my duties most of the time until the win-
I ter of 1844, when I was severely attacked with croup,
s and again compelled to discontinue preaching. On
t the 16th day of May, 1846. I was again attacked with
T Haemoptysis (spitting of blood), when I applied to
s Mr. Stow for a bottle of his “ Asiatic Elixir,” and after
f using it a day or two, I felt more free from pain in my
i. side than I had done for years before. One fortnight
n after commencing the ‘•Elixir,” I expectorated a large
i- quantity of bloody mucus from my lungs, and since
Y then the pains in my side have left me, the bleeding
from the lungs has discontinued, my health greatly
improved, and at this date 1 am twenty pounds heavier
than I was when I commenced taking the Elixir.
- From what I know in relation to the above medicine,
(for I have taken almost every medicine recommend
ed for my complaint without experiencing scarcely
any benefit,) I believe it to be the best preparation
■ for what it proposes to cure of any extant. My lungs
1 were examined by a regular physician after 1 be
-3 lieved myself to be cured, and he pronounced them
• every way sound and healthy. I have experienced
1 no difficulty from them since.
; , ANSON F. BEACH,
f Each bottle contains thirty-one doses of medicine,
1 which makes the cost of it about 1)4 cent per dose.

DR. TOWNSEND’S SARSAPARILLA.
MOST EXTRAORDINARY MEDICINE
TIN THE WORLD I !
HIS EXTRACT is put up in quart bottles. It is
six times cheaper, pleasanter, and warranted
superior to any sold. It cures diseases without vomit
ing, purging, sickening or debilitating the patient.
The great beauty and superiority of this Sarsapa
nlla over all other remedies is, while it eradicates
disease, it invigorates the body.
it has performed more than
FIFTEEN THOUSAND CURES THIS YEAR.
1000 Cures of Rheumatism.
1000 Cures of Dyspepsia.
2500 Cures of General Debility and want of nerv
ous energy.
3000 Female Complaints, and over.
7000 Cures of Diseases of the Bloor, viz:
Ulcers, Scrofula, Erysipelas, Salt Rheum, Pimples
on the Face, etc., together with numerous cases of
Consumption, Liver Complaint, Spinal Affections,
etc. This, we are aware, must appear incredulous’
put we have letters from physicians andour agents
irom all parts of the United States, informing us of ex
traordinary cures. R. Van Buskirk, Esq, one of the
most respectable druggists in Newark. N. J , informs
us that he can refer to more than one hundred and
fifty cases in that place alone. There are thousands
of cases in the city of New York, which we will re
fer to with pleasure, and to men of character well
known.
OPINIONS OF PHYSICIANS.
Dr. Townsend is almost daily receiving orders
from physicians in different parts of the Union.
.This is to certify that we, the undersigned, Physi
ciansof the city of Albany, have, in numerous cases
prescribed DR. TOWNSEND’S SARSAPARILLA,
ana believe it to be one of the most valuable prepar
ations of Sarsaparilla in the market.
P. H. Pulling, M. D.. J. Wilson, M. D.,R. B. Briggs,
M. D., P. T. Elmendorf,M. D.
Albany. April 1, 1845.
The following is from one of the most respectable
physicians on Long Island:
Greenport. July 19, 1846.
x Dr. Townsend— Dear Sir:—lt is with satisfaction
that I say to you, that I have recently witnessed, m
several cases, the most beneficial results from vour
EXTRACT OF SARSAPARILLA. Being engaged in
the practice of medicine, I have prescribed it in
several cases, and never without benefit. In the re
moval of disease arising from a deranged state of the
digestive organs, jaundice, &c., it far exceeds any
thing of the kind ever offered to the public. You will
please send me two dozen, &c.
Respectfully yours,
S. C. PRESTON, M. D.
UNITED STATES OFFICER.
Capt. G. W. McLean, member ot 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. 1
have continued taking it, and find that I improve
every day. I believed it saved my life, and would not
be without it under any consideration.
G. W. McLEAN.
THE EDITOR.
John Jackson, Esq., Editor of the Rahway Repub
lican, published the above certificate, and remarks
in an editorial as follows:
The success of Dr. Townsend’s Preparation
of Sarsaparilla appears to be one of the most ex
traordinary character. We publish to-day two cer
tificates 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.
SCROFULA CURED.
This Certificate conclusively proves that this Sar
saparilla has perfect control over the most obstinate
diseases of the blood. Three persons cured in one
house is unprecedented.
THREE CHILDREN.
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 medi
cine. 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.

CONSUMPTION CURED.
Cleanse and Strengthen. Consumption can bf.
cured. Bronchitis, Consumption, Liver Com 1
plaint, Colds, Coughs, Catarrh, Asthma, Spitt
ing of Blood, Soreness in the Chest, Hectic
Flush, Night Sweats, Difficult or Profuse Ex
pectoration, Pain in the Side, &c., have been and
CAN BE CURED.
Probably there never was a remedy that has been
so successful in desperate cases of Consumption as
this. It cleanses and strengthens the system, and
appears to heal the ulcers on the lungs, and the pa
tients gradually regain their usual health and
strength.
ALMOST A MIRACLE.
Read the following, and doubt, if you can, that Con
sumption can be cured. This is only one, of seve
ral hundred cases, tnat TOWNSEND’S SARSAPA
RILLA has cured:
Brooklyn, Sept. 14,1846
Dr. Townsend— Dear Sir:—l was taken, a little over
a year ago, with a severe cough and pain in my side;
it increased on me very fast indeed. 1 was pro
nounced by physicians to have the quick consump
tion. I raised large quantities of bad matter, had night
sweats, and—sinking very fast—my doctor said he
could do nothing for me. I went to the hospital, in
hope of being benefitted, but was pronounced theie
as incurable. I was now greatly distressed at the
lungs, and could hardly breathe: I soon became ema
ciated, and expected to die: was confined to my bed,
and was obliged to have watchers. Indeed, I cannot
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 numnerof remedies, and
all seemed to be of no effect. I read of some extra
ordinary cures, performed by your medicine, and to
tell you the truth, I suspected there was'some hum
bug in them. But I was induced to try it; I done so,
and am very thankful I did. I cannot say that lam
entirely well, but I am so far recovered as to be
about my business, and hope to be entirely well in a
few weeks. My cough, pain in the. side, and night
sweats, have left me, and I 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 please.

TO MOTHERS AND MARRIED LADIES.
This Extract of Sarsaparilla has been expressly
prepared in reference to Female Complaints. No
female should neglect to take it, as it is a certain pre
ventive for any of the numerous and horrible dis
eases to which they are subject. It is valuable for
those ‘who are approaching womanhood, as it is cal
culated to assist nature by quickening the blood and
invigorating the system. Indeed, this medicine is in
valuable 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 blood—by so far stimulating the system as to pro
duce no subsequent relaxation, which is the case of
most medicines taken for female weakness and
disease.
YOUNG LADIES, READ THIS.
You who have Pale Complexions, Dull Eyes, Blot
ches on the Face, Rough Skin, or Freckles, and are
“ out of spiri 4 use a bottle or two of Dr. Townsend’s
Sarsaparilla 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 of immense value to unmarried
ladies.
GREAT FEMALE MEDICINE.
Dr. Townsend’s Sarsaparilla is a sovereign and
speedycure for incipient Consumption, Barrenness,
Leucorrhosa or Whites, obstructed or difficult Men
struation, Incontinency of Urine, or involuntary dis
charge thereof, and for the general prostration of the
system, no matter whether the result of inherent
disease, or causes produced by irregularity, illness,
or accident.
Nothing can be more surprising than its invigorat
ing effects upon the human system. Persons, all
weakness and lassitude before taking it, at once be
come robust and full of energy under its influence.
It immediately counteracts the nervelessness of the
female frame, which is the great cause of barrenness.
It will not be expected or us, in cases fef so delicate
a nature, to exhibit certificates of cures performed;
but we can assure the afflicted that hundreds of cases
have been reported to us.
Coxsackir, Sept. 23, 1845.
Dr. Townsend: To all whom this may concern—
This is to certify that my wife used one bottle of
your Sarsaparilla previous to a critical event, under
the most alarming and delicate circumstances, being
troubled with the dropsy, swelling of the feet, ner
vous affections, and very much debilitated; with my
gersuasion, and the recommendation of those who
ad 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 of 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.
RHEUMATISM AND THE PILES.
September 16,1846.
Dr. Townsend: Dear Sir—My wife has been for
several years, afflicted with Rheumatism. She has
tried many different remedies to obtain some relief,
but all to no purpose. She was finally induced, by
seeing your advertisement, to give your Sarsaparilla
atrial. I was also, (together with a man in my em
ploy.) badly troubled 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.

DISEASE OF THE HEART, RUPTURE, AND
DROPSY.
New York, July 22.1846
Dr. Townsend: Dear Sin—Mv wife has been afflict
ed with a Disease ot the Heart, and with a terrible
Rupture for over fifteen years, the greater part of the
time. She has been troubled with Shortness ot
Breath and great Fluttering of the Heart, which has
been very distressing, and has frequently been un
able to eave her bed. The Rupture was very large
and severe. She tried almost every remedy for such
cases, with but little 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
fited, as she had such a complication of diseases.
But it has, as strange as it may appear, relieved her
of the dltopsy. lam aware that the statement is so
strange, as to appear almost like a fiction, but it is,
nevertheless, sober reality. Your Sarsaparilla is cer
tainly a valuable medicine, and should be used by
every one that is suffering as we have been. If any
disbelieve this account, they are at liberty to call at
my house, and have ocular demonstration.
Yours respectfully.

SOLEMN OATH.
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 singular energy it acts upon particular diseases,
or out of envy, he knows- not.
State of New York, CifY and County of New
York, ss.—On this twenty-sixth of June, A. D., eigh
teen hundred and forty-six, personally appeared be
fore me, Andrew H. Mickle, Mayor of the City of,
New York, S. P Townsend, who, by me being duly

CANKER IN THE MOUTH.
New York, April 2, 1847.
Dr. Townsend: Dear Sir—One of my children was
very sick with the Canker in the mouth and throat*
attended with great debility. It came near dying: 1
obtained some of your excellent medicine, and it
cured it directly, for which I can assure you I feel
very grateful. Tours l respectfully,
ELIZABETH FOWLER, 27 Desbrosses st.
Dr. Townsend— Sir : Some time since you request
ed my opinion of your Compound Syrup of Sarsapa
rilla; lam now prepared to give it. 1 have used it in
my practice, and prescribed it for the last few months,
and must give it my decided preference over any
thing of the kind witn which I am acquaintea, both
as to its medicinal virtues, and the reasonable price
at which you sell it. In scrofulous affections, cuta
neous eruptions generally, indigestion, costive habits,
and liver complaints, I am much pleased with its
effects. In these complaints, or any other where Sar
saparilla indicated, I can with confidence recommend
it to the patronage of the profession, as a valuable
remedy for removing disease, in some of its most
troublesome forms, and to all, as a safe and valuable
medicine. BENJ. WEEKS, M. D.
