Free Trade and Ladies’ Rights. —The
Ladies of Gotham are enthusiastic in favor of free trade with
the celebrated house of Smith & Lounsbery ; not that they
are unmindful of duties, for they regard it as a duty to them
eelves, their families, and especially to the masculine half,
to get their Carpets where they can find those of the best
quality and at the lowest prices. All things taken together,
they deem it most prudent ’and profitable to fork over their
loose change to the magnificent Carpet establishment at 456
Broadway, That is the reason that their brilliant and beau
tiful Axminstcrs are walking off so fast, their Royal Velvets
their Medallions, and Three-Ply. Also, the fame of great
bargains having been made not a thousand miles from 456,
Las set the lair sex all of a tantivy, and we readily believe
that if it were not for the very hot weather, Messrs. Smith &
Loutsbery would not have a Carpet l§ft in their store, be
tween this and next Saturday.
The Pink Bonnets on the Water.—No
thing pleases the calico better than a trip on the water at this
season of the year, and they are right, for there is nothing
more pleasing. The cool breeze from the Bay, the wavelets
on the white sandy beach, and then the music that comes float
ing. like a liquid heaven, over the bosom of the deep. All
these inspire the most pleasurable emotions in the bosom of
the gentie ones. Speaking of music, we know of none to
compare with those noble Pianos of Horace Waters 333
Broadway. This celebrated article surpasses every th Ing’ that
takes the name of Piano, and is held In the highest estimation
by artists generally.. The skill and labor bestowed upon this
w onderful instrument has been great, and it has produced
something worthy of the time that has been laid out on it.

The City and Citizens of Madrid.—“ A
letter from Madrid,” in the last number of Blackwood con
tains much information in regard to the buildings, manners
and customs of the people of the Spanish capital, which is of
peculiar interest at the present moment, when that unfortu
nate nation is in danger of general revolution. The letter
being a long one we are compelled to give the substance of it
merely, confining ourselves to but a few extracts.
The letter-writer went from Paris to Madrid and he says it
ir hardly fair to visit the Spanish capital direct from Paris..
“ It is like suddenly exchanging choice Burgundy or fragrant
claret for the most ordinary Arganda wine that ever flowed
out of the unsavory mouth of a tarred pigskin.”
Ihe lenient manner of European travelers, in speaking of
the Spaniard’s “ shabby little capital,” he attributes to their
arriving into Madrid from the south after lingering in Andalu
sian cities. The Spaniards attempt a dllligent copy of Paris
in their government buildings, &.C., but the imitation is so
abominable and the progress made so small, that it takes some
time for a new come traveler to discover the attempt at a
resemblance. Still, the Spaniard, in the pride of his heart,
sets far above every other group of houses this “shabby little
capital,” declaring it to be the “ only court” worthy of the
name, or remarking that “ where Madrid is talked of all the
world beside is mute.”
The Spaniard’s opinion of all foreigners is very contempti
ble. No nation in this respect is half so bigoted. He deems
no foreigner capable of judging the Spanish character, or of
the. Spanish Government, or of anything that is Spanish. The
highest praise they bestow upon - anything they approve that
is not of themselves is : “ Very fair for a foreigner.” A •■id
yet there are individuals audacious enough to judge for them
. selves of the institutions of Spain—who think they can com
pass them with all their obstinate errors; and among these is
our letter-writer who gives his impressions of this “sun
scorched, wind blown, sand-surrounded villa y corte of Ma
drid.” Madrid, although a capital, is not a city, but only a
“town and court,” small in size, and, beside the throng and
bustle in the lively-crowded streets, and its magnificent pal
ace, and a few other fine edifices, there is little to interest. It
has three handsome streets—that of from the
centre of the town to the gate of the same name—that of
Atceka, also of great length and sufficient width, and that of
the Calle May or. 'The ether streets ’are narrow, winding, and
composed of houses, which, al:hough lofty, are mean in ap
pearance. Of the far-famed Puerta del Sol, where gossips
congregate, and where all foreigners repair on their first
arrival, our writer is reminded of “that classic and Hiber
. nian spot known as the Seven Dials.” The edifice of the
J/inisterio de la Gobernacion, (Ministry of the Interior,) its
main building, is a large and solid, although not a handsome
structure, serving als* as the main guard-house. The Puerta
del Sol itself is an open space where several streets meet; at
its western extremity it dwindles into the Calle Mayor; at its
eastern end is the church of .Buen Suesco, which is now
teing torn down. The form of the square is oblong and ir
regular. - In the front of the church, now crumbling to its
foundation, is a projecting slab of asphalt, which gradually
narrows as it juts out into the Plaza. The loungers made
thia a great resort until the dust from the falling church drove
them from it. The remainder of the square is paved and
open to vehicles. The Puerta is the great focus or centre
through which every body passes, as six out the nine streets
which open out of it are the most frequented in Madrid.
“The position of the habitues of the place, of those persons
who pass there several, hours of every day, is regulated by
the position of the sun. As soon as the rays of that lumina
ry become too powerful to be braved with impunity, which
is the case in Madrid in March, or even earlier, the' frequent
ers of the Puerta hourly shift their position to escape them.
In the middle of the day, when the sun has encroached upon
the Whole cf their territory, they may be seen penned up in
corners like sheep in a fold, the line of shade the barrier.
There is a fine time for the water sellers, with their mono
tonous cry of Aguadero ! quien quiern agua ? ' with their
jars of porous clay, and their capacious tumblers, kept as
bright as the crystal element, which they dispense at the
price of a farthing a glass. Their customers are numerous,
for the thirst of Spaniards appears unquenchable and everlast
ing; and their stomachs, heated by garlic, redpeper, and other
heating condiments are ever ready for a Douche. The com
position of the throng is motley enough. Fora great part of
the day, mining speculators form a considerable portion of
it mining being still a fashion and furor in Spain, which
is abundantly rich in minerals, but whose mining affairs are
generally badly administered,—half negligence, half robbery,
as not a few of our countrymen have found to their cost.
Then there are persons who frequent the Puerta merely to
hear the news and hawk about the gossip of the hoar;
others who make appointments there; and others again who
go, because it is a condition of their existence to stand, for
half the day, draped mystically in their cloaks and twisting
paper cigars in their fingers.”. Gentlemen of equlvical
aspect ai e seen also on the Puerta, clad in shabby brown
cloaks and gacho (squat) hats, —the national hat among the
•lower order. These gentlemen, if physiognomy be any guide,
are better met in tbe crowded street, than on the lone moun
tain path. The writer remarks on the number of the blind
one meets in Madrid, conjecturing that the eternal glare, and
dust, and want of shade, together with the rarilied air of
Madrid—perched as it is on a lofty plain a half a mile above
the level of the sea—may produce opthalmia and other dis
eases of the eye.
The shops in Madrid are neither spacious nor handsome
seme in the Parisian style have lately been attempted. From
the Puerto, to the bull-ring the road is *direct, the street of
Acala beginning at tbe former and ending at the entrance to
the latter. After Passion week, which is rigorously kept in
a country where Protestants until lately were denied a burial,
is the commencement of the nation’s darling diversion, the
bull-fight. This amusement has been so often described that
we will not attempt a description, although a very graphic
one is given by our writer. Young and old, all classes, deli
cate ladies and children attend these spectacles and are most
delighted when the death-agony of the infuriated animals is
fiercest. On one occasion the bulls refusing to fight, but ap
pearing to wish for the quiet of their own stable, one they
found it necessary to hamstring; another they applied fire
works to, &c.; and on their still refusing to fight, the infuri
ated spectators, amid the horrid yells and howls of ten thou
sand throats, arose from box and bench to take vengeance on
the corriyedor. “On a torrid summer’s day, in a glare of
light, when the atmosphere quivers with heat, and the bulls
are the fiercest, and the excitement the maddest, and the gay
colors of the people’s dresses give additional brilliancy to the
scene, tbe sight is one not to be matched out of Spain, and
which leaves an impression not easy to be effaced.
Of the government and politics our writer says the present
Spanish goverpment with M. Sartorius, Count of San Luis,
(who a few years ago was an employe in a provincial news
paper office,) at its head, has adopted a servile and ludicrous
imitation of that of the Emperor Napoleon 111. It aims at
the revival of absolutism, and seeks, whilst ripening its de
signs, to divert and occupy the nation’s attention by a system
of what it calls material internal improvements. Various small
boons have been granted accordingly; passports have been
dispensed with throughout the kingdom, and passengers’ lug
gage is allowed to enter towns without being examined.
Before the enactment of this law, Spaniards traveling in the
heart of Spain, submitted to having their baggage searched at
the entrance of every small town through which they passed,
to see if it contained contraband goods. In Madrid M. Sarto
rius has commenced more improvements than he will remain
in office to see executed. He has Incensed all the tradesmen
by tearing down their shops in the Puerta del Sol, in his
grand scheme of enlarging, with the Queen’s sanction, this
thoroughfare. These poor tradespeople feel that their pros
pect of compensation, from this poverty-stricken and unscru
lous government, is but a poor one: they all, together with a
large number of the influential citizens of Madrid, offered a
remonstrance against these improvements, but the imperious
San Luis snapped his fingers at their opposition, showed them
the Royal order, and went on with his plans of demolition.
The “ innocent Isabel,” to defend whom, twenty years ago,
more than one-half of Spain was in arms aganist the other
half, who denied her right to the throne, has, by her excesses
and her absolutist tendencies, sunk herself fathoms deep in
the estimation of even that degraded people. Nothing that
has been told of her Intrigues, amours, ar>d selfish indiffer
ence to the welfare of her subjects can equal the reality.
“Sullen silence on the part of the people, when Majesty drives
abroad, and a resolute holding aloof on the part of the more
respectable portion of the aristocracy, sufficiently mark the
nation’s disesteem. When first this unfortunate princess
abandoned the limits of propriety, the disorder of her conduct
was flagrant. Within the last two years or thereabouts, she
has attached herself to one favorite, who has gained great as
cendancy over her.” Through servile flattery to this favor
ite-such is the corrupt state of the Spanish nation—do those
who are already in office hold their places, and through this
Arana do office seeders gain, by bribes, &c., the appointments
they ccvct. Some of the oldest ministers in power fawn upon
him, court his society, show themselves in public places in ais
company, and do not deem it beneath their personal dignity.
Bribery and corruption throughout Spain stand for justice and
honesty. After revealing many of the hidden springs of the
despotic and rotten government of Spain, the letter writer
says : “ Spaniards have a particular horror of being held up
as a frightful example—like the confirmed drunkard, whom
the itinerant preacher of temperance took to travel with him.
And yet, in their present condition as a nation, that is almost
the only use they can be put to. When we consider their de
graded state, the corruption of their court and public men,
the venality, want of energy, and deficient education of even
the better classes, the misery and penury of the lower orders,
the state of the country’s finances, and the tyranny under
which it groans, it is impossible to deny that Spain is what the
Yankees call 1 a caution f to Europe.”
The American Screech Owl.—Perhaps
all of our city readers do not know the habits of this curious
bird.’ Gi aham in his last number has gathered a few inter
esting facts of this night bird, (called the “Mottled Owl,” also
the Little Screech Owl,) in his “ Wild Birds of America,”
from which we draw the following: The Mottled Owl is ten
inches long and twenty-two in extent, from wing to wing.
The general color of the upper portion of the body, neck and
head, is dark-brown, mottled with black and ash. The wings
are spotted with white. The face Is whitish, marked with
irregular dusky spots. The breast and belly are a beautiful
white, touched and streaked with black. The horns are very
prominent, each composed of ten feathers, increasing in
length frem the first backward. The male is less in size than
the female, and darker in color. The mottled owl {Strix Noe
via—Wilson) is peculiar to America, rare in Pennsylvania
and New Jersey, from some unknown cause, but abounding
in Maryland, Virginia and Ohio, and increasing in numbers
farther north. In New England the night-woods are alive
with its dismal song. The uplands and mountain districts are
its favorite abode. It roosts in hollow trees, generally in the
woods, sometimes among the thick evergreens and “bush
lots,” growing in retired places. According to Audubon and
others they build their i est in the hollow trunk of a tree,
sometimes at no greater hight than six or seven feet from the
ground, and at times as high as thirty or forty fee . The nest
is formed of dried grass and feathei s. 3he eggs are four or
five in number, nearly globular, and purely white. No bird
is so hated by the small singing birds as the little screech owl.
These little birds watch with an instinct truly surprising for
opportunities to attack him at such times when he can least
defend himself. The Blue Jay, and other birds discover his
retreat in the day-time, they then sound the alarm and all the
neighboring birds gather round and tease and peck the hated
cannibal until they fairly drive him from his lodgings. The
writer In Graham gives the following quotation from Wilson,
as illustrative of the form and habits of the screech owl: “On
contemplating the grave and antiquated figure of this night
wanderer, so destitute of everything like gracefulness of
shape, I 'Can scarcely refrain from smiling at the conceit of
the ludicrous appearance this bird riaust have made, had na
ture bestowed on it the powers of song, and given it the facul
ty of warbling out sprightly airs, whilst robed in such a sol
emn exterior. But the great God of nature hath in his wis
dom assigned to this class of birds a more unsocial and less
noble disposition, by assimulating them, not only in form of
countenance, but in voice and manners, to some particular
beasts of prjy; secluding them from the gay sunshine of
day, and giving them little more than the few solitary hours
of morning and evening twilight to procure their food and
pursue their amours ; while all the tuneful tribes, a few ex
cepted, are wrapt in silence and repose. That their true
character, however, should not be concealed from those weak
er animals on whom they feed, He has stamped their coun
tenance with strong traits of their murderer—the cat; and
birds, in this respect, are perhaps better physiognomists than
men.”
Indian Life on the Yuba.—»Among some
“ passages from the correspondence of a truant husband,”
in tbe June No. of the Knickerbocker, entitled “Life on the
Yuba,” we find, at 4he close of a fine description of the moun
tains overlooking the valley of the Sacramento, an account of
Indian life on the Yuba, which, to those not already acquaint
ed with its details, will doubtless prove interesting. On vis
iting their encampment the writer says : “ lie found some fif
teen or twenty wigwams, but only a few Indians, the most of
them being on a fishing excursion to the Yuba River. The
notion commonly entertained of Indians by young ladies is a
good deal more romantic than true. But still it is interesting
to go among them. The wigwams are made by sticking poles
into tbe ground so as to make a cone some ten or twelve feet
in diameter at the bottom, and about six feel high in the cen
tre. All furniture I could find in any of them was a bas
ket or two or three, of different sizes and shapes, and a ma
chine to which they lash their papooses and stand them by
the side of tbe tent, just as you would stand a stool up by the
chimney wall; or, if they are going any where, sling them
over their backs.
These baskets are about as nice pieces of workmanship as
you can think : braided of wood of different colors into pretty
I'atterns, with an ingenuity one would never expect from
them. They are made perfectly tight, so as to hold water as
well as any bucket. Some of the baskets—at least »ne for
each Mohele, (woman, pronounced Mohalah,)— are in form
very like a large funnel, capable of holding nearly a bushel.
In these baskets they carry their provisions from one place
to ano her, on their backs.
** Some of the Moheles were preparing acorns to mix with
t elr fish, to make sotip. I will describe one; and from one
learn all. She was a young, and rather pretty woman, des
pite her dirt and want of clothing. Certainly what beau y she
possessed was quite as unadorned as any one* could have
wished. Her dress consisted of a dirty knit woolen under
shirt, and a cotton cloth, likewise soiled, worn in the same way
mothers in the States, are accustomed to tie up their Labies
for security against little disagreeable accidents. Add to [
this some beads and a jews harp strung around her neck, and j
you have the costume of the Indian Maiden. She was seated i
’on a large granite rock, her legs (beg pardon—limbs) as far i
assunder as convenience permitted, and between them, in a I
little hollow scooped in the rock, was a pile of dried acorns, |
which she was pounding with a stone, and sifting every now
and then in a peculiar manner, which would take tco mu ?h
time to describe. After watching this damsel awhile, a.d
seeing her occasionally sweep, with a small brush she had,the
dust of the powdered acorns off her bare legs into the res of
tbe pile, she also blowcd her nose every now and then with
her hands, and other innocent unsophisticated ways of hers,
I concluded in case I received an invittaiion to eat, to plead
a poor appetite. 3he girl pounded away for a long time
without deigning to notice us, or seeming to know that w 3
were about. All at once her tongue became loose .enough,
and in a mixture of Mexican and Indian she continued to tell
us she was very busy, had to get her acorns all pounded by
the time the sun got round to a certain tree, so the Ameri
cans could’nt court her that day! From this little speech I
inferred that the little Moheles opinion of her'charms was as
good as the reality warranted ; and that probably she was
quite a belle in the society to which she was accus'omed.”
The manner in which the Indian women cook their soup, is
described as follows:—“ They make a broad, shallow hole in
tbe ground, which they pound until it is hard; then fill it with
water, into which they put their meat. They then heat rocks
in the fire and boil their soup by putting the rocks into it.
When boiled enough, they thicken it with their pounded
acorns ; of which tbty collect sometimes one or two hundred
bushels. - ’
The Indian women mourn for their deceased husbands iq a
way that is somewhat peculiar, as described by our author.
They express their grief by cutting the whole length of their
hair close to their heads, and covering their heads, necks, and
a part of their faces thickly with tar !

Dr. Oicestman’s Pills for Females.—
The combinations of the ingredients in these Pills, is the result
of a long and extensive practice : they are mild in their opera
tion, and certain of restoring nature into its proper channel.
In every instance have the Pills proved successful. The Pills'
invariably open those obstructions to which females are liable,
and bring nature into its proper channel, whereby health is
restored, and the pale and deathly countenance changed to a
healthy one. No female can enjoy good health unless she is
regular; and whenever an obstruction takes place; whether
from exposure, cold, or any other cause, the general health
begins immediately to decline, and the want of such a remedy
has been the cause, of so many consumptions among young fe
males. Headache, pain in the side, palpitation of the heart
loathing of food, and disturbed sleep do most always arise from
the interruption of nature; and whenever that is the case, the
Pills will invariably remedy all these evils.
N. B.—These Pills should never be taken during pregnancy,
as they would be sure to cause a miscarriage.

affections ot - the digestive organs, they are withal safe, certain
and pleasant. •

rg?” Wolfe’s Aromatic SihieilamSsiraapjH—
As the Medical Faculty everywhere, and even temperance or
ganizations and the stringent liqner laws of New England, re.
oognise alcoholic stimulants as remedial agents in the treat
ment of disease. I,presume that, in having introduced a pure
and truly hygelantform of spirit injo the materia msdica, I can
not be charged with hostility to the temperance cause.
The “Aromatic Schiedam Schnapps,” manufactured at my
distillery in Schiedam, Holland, is a perfectly pure arliale,
which physicians have heretofore been unable to obtain in this
country, and which, from its being flavored and impregnated
with the finest oil of the Italian j amper, is available in cases of
gravel, gout, and all acute and chronic affections of the bladder
and kidneys, as well as generally as a diuretic and invigorant.
I have now in my possession letters from two thousand of the
first physicians hi the United States, endorsing tlio purity of
the article, setting forth its curative properties, and permuting
me to refer to the writers all who n;ay desire their personal as
surances as a further guarantee. The most distinguished pro
fessors of medical science, iu the north, the south, the east, and
the west, will sustain me when I assert that “Wolfe's Aromatic
Schiedam Schnapps” is superior to any other alcoholic prepara
tion. as a medicine. I therefore refer all sceptics on this subject
to the leading physicians of any city of the Union for full cou 7
firmation of my statements.
If it were practicable to do so within the limits of a circular, I
might cite a thousand cases from my voluminous correspond
ence in which the ‘‘Schnapps” has been of priceless benefit
to invalids.
Whether spirituous liquor be used as a medicine or an occa
sional beverage, it is of the greatest moment that it bo pure.
Adulterated liquor is poison ; and the present high price of
brandy abroad offers a premium for its adulteration which few
foreign holders can wPhstand. Here, the process of deteriora
tion is all but universal, and the man whose taste has not been
educate<bto distinguish the qualities of liquor, may easily be
cajoledihto purchasing a deleterious article a-- a high price.
Bui he who drinks the Schiedam Schnapps In preference to, ahd
to the exckifiion of, every other liquor, has the strongest possible
guarantees that he imbibes the most healthful spirit in tlie
world. Two thousand physicians of eminence would not have
compromised their reputations by standing godfathers to any
article not thoroughly entitled to their confidence, and to the
confidence of the public. The most popular aud'influential
newspapers in the Union would not editorially approve a medi
ocre article. Distinguished chemists could not have been in
duced, after analyzing the preparation, to declare it free from
every impurity.
These endorsements, then, and ray own character and standing
in the community in which 1 live, form a pledge and a guaran
tee which the public are bound to respect. The claim I put
forth in behalf of the “Schnapps” are based on impregnable
facts, fortified by the highest testimony, and confirmed by scien
tific analysis.
Those who use other liquors cannot always obtain the same
brands ; they may have a good article to-day, a poorer one to
morrow, a bad one the next day. But the “Schnapps” is always
the same pure, renovating and remedial preparation. It never
varies in quality.
As a ma'tter of course (It is the fate of everything invaluable),
the “Schnapps” is extensively counterfeited. Unprincipled
retailers, in many instances, after emptying the bottles of the
genuine Schiedam, have filled them up witii common gin, and.
sold that poisonous abomination as “ Wolfe’s Aromatic
Schnapps.” 1 have, however, sent such Instructions to my
agents on this subject, as I trust will put a stop to the imposi
tion ; and it is my determination to expose and prosecutefall to
whom the fraud can be brought home.

In conclusion I would beg leave to add a few of the certifi
cates now in my possession to the great medical value of the
Schnapps.
Dr. David L. Mott, of New York, who made a careful analysis
of the Schnapps, after stating the nature and properties of its
constituents, pronounces it a perfectly pure Holland Gin, and the
very best preparation of alcohol for medicinal purposes to bo
found in this country.
► Dr. David M. Reese, the editor of the New York Medical Ga
zette, in bis July number, remarks Where a stimulant is
required the preference should be given to Wolfe’s Schiedam
Schaupps.”
Dr. Isaiah Deck, analytical chemist, New York, says :
“ Wolfe’s Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps, as a medical agent,, in
chronic and venal affections, I have successfully prescribed,
and can recommend it as an agreeable cordial aud harmless stim
ulant, and shall continue to do so, as well as to use it as a
source of pure alcohol for chemical investigations aud experi
ments.”
Dr. Charles A. Leas, commissioner oflhealth, Baltimore, In his
letter of July 27, says :
“ I take great pleasure In bearing highly creditable testimony
to as a remedial ageut in the diseases for which you
recommend it. Having a natural tendency to the mucous sur
faces, with a slight degree of stimulation, I regard it as one of
the most important remedies in chronic catarrhal affections, par
ticularly those of the genito-urino apparatus.
tf With much respect, your obdient servant,
“C. A. LEAS, M. D.”
Dr. A. Chaloner, Philadelphia, in his letter of July 15, writes
as follows:
“Mr. Udolpho Wolfe, No. 22 Beaver street, New York—Dear
Sir : Last season, the writer received through your agent in this
city, a bottle of Aromatic Schiedam Schnapps, and since that
period has presented the same in certain forms of primary com
plaints ; also in cases of debility in aged persons. So far tbe
Schnapps has been of much benefit to those using it. * * • •
In conclusion, where a dlrueMc and stimulant is required, I
should use the Aromatic Schiedam Schnapps. Thanking you for
your kindness, I am respectfully yours,
“A. D. CHALONER, M. D.,
“No. 180 South Bth street.”
Dr. C. Robbins, of Boston, complajus of the great difficulty of
procuring a pure Holland Gin, and speaks of the Schiedam Aro
matic Schnapps as follows:
“ I have commended your artlcletin four cases, two in Connec
ticut, one in Vermont, and one in SRhode Island. An article of
this character is much needed. I have been unable to fiud a sub
stitute in the materia medlca for your pure Holland Gin.”
“Yours, C. ROBBINS.”
Dr. C. Calkins, town physician and surgeon at Lynne, Conn.,
says in his letter, under date of October 14th :
“ I consider your Schiedam Aromatic Schnapps, a superior ar
ticle, and one that will not come short of my highest expecta
tions. It is an article the medical fraternity have long wanted.’
Hyatt’s Life Balsam— The Certain Con
queror of Rheumatism, Scrofula, King’s Evil, with every dis
ease flowing from great impurity of the blood, no matter of how
long standing, or from what source derived.
The Life Balaam is equally efficacious in the most violent
forms of OLD ULCERS, ERYSIPELAS, FEVER SORES,
AND MERCURIAL DISEASES. The following certificates
will conclusively show that there is no medicine which can com
pare with this powerful, safe, and certain purifying agent, and
that it has also cured the verv worst cases of CANCER, LIVER
COMPLAINT, ANDFISTtLA.
EXTRAORDINARY CASE OF RHEUMATISM.
Mr. J. Snyder, 211 Gold street, Brooklyn, was a helpless crip
ple for nearly sixteen years. His limbs and joints were thrown
out of their natural positions and shape. He could obtain no
sleep, except from opium or morphine. After he had spent an
ample fortune iu drugs, medical attendants, and loss of busi
ness, he was restored to his health and to business, by four bot
tles of the Life Balsam.
RHEUMATISM.
The Hon. J. V. D. Fowler, 188 Stanton street, was for a long
period as tortured a victim of Rheumatism, as has ever sur
vived its dreadful effects upon the system. His limbs.at length
became swollen to twice their natural size, and he was fast
sinking under the disease. He testifies that after all else had
failed, he was perfectly cured by the Life Balsam in a very
short time.
SEVERE INFLAMMATORY RHEUMATISM AND GOUT.
B. Rice, Esq., 32 Grove str-eet, was for more than a year so
severely afflicted, that he had to abandon his business, and
was soon unable to walk or rest his foot upon the ground.
His legs and joints were swollen to double their natural size,
and he was
UNABLE TO ENJOY ONE HOUR’S SLEEP. •
except through opium or more powerful drugs. Mr. Rice visi
ted the Springs, and had the best medical advice, but could ob
tain no relief until the LIFE BALSAM came to his aid. A few
bogles RESTORED HIM TO EXCELLENT HEALTH, nor
has he suffered any other attack, though two years have since
elapsed.
SCROFULA, KING’S EVIL, &c., &G.
The grand daughter of Mr. Jones, 153 Nassau st., Brooklyn,
was afflicted with- Scrofula in the neck. Some of the ulcers
penetrated to the windpipe.
SHE WAS CURED WITH THREE BOTTLES.
Mrs. Burton, 127 Eldridge street. —This lady has suffered fo
years, until life became intolerable; some of the ulcers had
- consumed the flesh to the bones and skull. She was cured in a
month.
CANCER.
Horace J. Gardner was eleven years afflicted with this dread
ful scourge. The disease had entirely destroyed his nose, and
was
FAST CONSUMING THE FACE,
reaching nearly to the eyes, when he was induced to try the all
conquering Life Balsam. A few bottles entirely healed every
ulcer, and restored the suffer to perfect health.
For proof of this great and unequalled cure, the afflicted are
referred to his Honor, Mayor Westervelt, before whom, Mr.
Gardner appeared and made affidavit on the 39th of June last,
exhibiting his dreadfully disfigured, but perfectly healed, fea
tures.
LARGE, DEEP, AND OBSTINATE ULCERS.
Mr. N. Jacobs, whose place of business is at No. 5 Market st.,
was long afflicted v.tiih the most obstinate kind Of scrofula, in the
form of dangerous old ulcers, which resisted and defied the best
medical skill, until Mr. Jacobs had recourse to the purifying, all
healing Life Balsam, which soon removed every vestige of this
loathsome disease, restoring him to excellent health.
FISTULA.
Capt. W. I. Brown, 97 Prince street, was a great sufferer
from this torturing disease. At times he was confined to bis
room and bed for weeks together. He was under treatment
by the very best physicians, and had to submit to an operation
of the surgeon’s knife, but all failed to eradicate the dis
ease, until he resorted to the LIFE BALSAM, a few bottles of
which perfectly cured him.
COUGHS. SPITTING OF BLOOD. CONSUMPTION.
Hyatt’s Life Balsam is dally curing the worst cases or these
complaints. It cured Mr. J. 11. Goodwin of pain in the side, ,
breast, and spitting of blood, after he had been afflicted for
years, and was reduced to the last stage of weakness, and con
sidered beyond the reach of medicine. Mr. Goodwin’s office
is at 114 Elizabeth street. He is now in the enjoyment of per
fect health. Let i.he afflicted call and see him.
Mr. A. H. Parker, 197 Centre street, was .afflicted with dis
tressing cough, raising blood, pain the breast, night sweats, <tc.
He was restored to perfect health by the Life Balsam.
’ REMARKABLE CASE OF ASTHMA.
In Asthma, it must here suffice to mention me case of MISS
COLE, a young lady, the daughter of Mr. Obediah Cole, 248
Tlilrd.ayjmue, who, for years required almost constant watch
ing in expectation of strangulation, and in whom this disease,
aluiough inherited from infancy, was entirely eradicated in
a few months. I.et this and all other cases be put to the test
of personal inquiry, for the LIFE BALSAM is left to stand or
fall bv this fair method of proof.

Bair Restorative.— Phalon’s Hair Invigo
rator, to restore the Hair, to cure effectually Dandruff, Scurf,
&.C.
ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS REWARD
Will be paid by E. Phalon, to any person who can produce a Hair
Invigorator which can equal his as a beautiful and healthy res.
torative of the Hair. This truly valuable Hair Restorative has
been before the citizens of
NEW YORK, BOSTON, AND PHILADELPHIA,
over 20 years ; during which time it has given the most perfect
satisfaction, and superseded all other so-called Hair Restora
tives, Invigorators, &c., many of which are in the dark bosom
of oblivion buried. Hundreds in the city of
CINCINNATI ALONE,
have cause to rejoice that they were induced to try one single
bottle of Pha lon’s Hair Invigorator, having tried most everything
recommended for the hair, without deriving any benefit what
soever. Phalon’s Hair Invigorator not only prevents
THE HAIR FROM CUMING OUT,
but by its use preserves it to extreme old age. For infants and
children, whose hair may seem weak or thin, their mothers can
apply nothing better. It removes the scurf, which is so apt to
cause weakness of the hair in .
YOUNG PEOPLE,
and which, if neglected, continues to render the roots of the
hair less productive the faster they advance to age. Ladies will
Hud the Jr.vigora»or a great addition to the toilet, but on account
of its delicate and
AGREEABLE PERFUME,
and the great facilities it affords in dressing the hair, which,
when moist with the Invigorator, can be dressed in any required
form, so as to preserve its place, whether plain or in curls.
Prof. E. Phalon would again remark, when used on
CHILDREN’S HEADS.
it lays the foundation for a good head of hair, and would also
state it has restored the hair when hundreds oif dollars has been
expended in vain upon other preparations. It also dresses
THE HAIR BEAUTIFULLY,
keeps it soft, silken and clean, thrice as long as any other prepa
ratirn. It will change the harshest hair into the most healthy,
gloksy sta'e—imparting to it a most beautiful dark color—keep
ing both the skin and hair in a healthy and luxuriant state, until
the latest period of life.
From tue N. Y. Tribune. —We know of no compound for the hair
which, as far as our experience goes, can equal Phalon’s Chemical
Bair Invigorator. There is no remedy for tbe permanent cure of
baldness, and diseases of the head generally, that has reached the
popularity enjoyed by this article. It imparts vigor to the roots
of the hair, and promotes its growth to a remarkable degree.
Judge Edwards, of Philadelphia, a inau over seventy years of age,
the top of whose head was as bald as one's band two months
since, has now the hair growing fast by its use. There are many
others whose names we are not at liberty to give, whose hair has
been restored by Phalon’s Invigorator.
From tbe N. Y. Sun.—A young gentleman, a friend of ours, liv
ing in Bleecker-st.. was attacked with fever—the hair on the top
of his head was dried off—the sides were covered with old, rusty,
dry hair, filled with dandruff; he has at this time a beautiful head
of hair from the use of Phalon’s Hair Invigorator.

Barker’s SlteveuxtoniQße.— The propri
etor of this article, during seventeen years’ experience in the
art of ladies’ hair dressing, has never found, among all that is
sold under the name of “ restoratives,” “regenerators,” &c.
anything-that would restore the hair upon a lady’s head after it
badiailefioff. It is comparatively .easy to produce this effect
upon gentlemen, from the fact that the frequent cutting of their
hair strengthens it; but a lady’s tresses, which are never sub
jected to the tonsona] scissors, may fade, wither, decay, and fall
off - , and there is nothing to restore them to their original luxu
riance. There are preparations, to be sure, which may force
out a few stray locks, but they present “a lean and ragged
look,” which distracts rather than adds to the personal appear
ance.
BARKER’S CHEYEUXTONIQUE,
was produced by the proprietor after much experimenting, to
supply this important desideratum, and give to the ladies an ar
ticle which would induce so powerful a growth as to impart all
tl:e original power and vigor to the scalp. In effecting this, it
of course became necessary to combine with it medicinal prop
erties for removing the complaints to which the head is subject,
for, after all, baldness is but a disease, and,not, as many people
suppose, the necessary result of increasing years. Hence the
Chiiveuxtonique was so compounded as lobea sure cure for
Ringworm. Tetter, Scald Head, Headache, Incipient Erysipe
las, Inflamed Skin, and indeed all other diseases which affectth6
head.
It will cure the Headache in the shortest possible time, as also
- eradicate Dandruff - , and, by being free from all grease, does not'
clog up the roots where the delicate fibres ot - the hair .first start:
but does what is all important, keeps them free and open, and
thus producing in a short time a soft, delicate, and glossy cover
ing to the heau as rich and lustrous as youthful locks.
One bottle is enough to prove its superiority over every other
article at present used for a similar purpose.
No preparation has ever been presented to the public which
combines such extraordinary qualities as this—so wonderful and
yet so simple that all are surprised it had not been thought of
before. It recommends itself at once to all who use it, putting
to flight all the nostrums and thousand and one humbugs of the
day.

165“-Th« Great Pro Hem Solved.— Dr. Morse’s
INVIGORATING ELIXIR, OB CORDIAL-—lt is tlie policy
of self-sufficient pretension to deny and contemn every great
discovery or invention that conflicts with the traditional theories
of “ Old Fogyism” in any branch of science. Even with ten
thousand unimpeachable proofs of the permanent cures of Ner
vous Diseases effected by MORSE’S IN VIGOR ATING ELIXIR
staring them in the face, professional bigots may be found who
still contend that there is no exhilerant, no stimulant in nature,
the curative action of which is not weakened by repetition or
neutralized by subsequent prostration. But, as the would be
philosophers who predicted the failure of ocean steam naviga
tion and the electric telegraph, have been shamed and silence !
by the rushing keels of our steam leviathans, and uy lightning
stenography, so is this
PEERLESS INVIGORANT
destined to shame and silence those who deny its virtues, simply
because it has opened a new era in the annals of m jdieiae an!
scattered into thin air the dogmas of a stolid school, who cling to
the obsolete, and would fain have the world suppose that nothing
new can be true, and that progress Is only another name for
dangerous innovation.
Let i he host of the cured, who have been raised from weakness
to strength, from tha depths of despondency to the full enjoy
ment of mental and bodily health, by means of this great spe
cific, answer to unbelievers. Clouds of witnesses and a chain
of testimony without a break or a flaw, attest its efficacy, aud
j demonstration gives the lie to doubt.
The evidence, comes from all se-ciions of the Union; it is volun
i teered by multitudes of 1 o:h sexes; it refers to every variety of
| nervous diseases, and to all the complaints originating in the
digestive organs: in other words, to mure titan haifthe maladies
; incident to lhe human race.
I The Dyspeptic patient, whose st/imach has lost the power of
i duly converting food into a life-sustaining element, is relieve iby
a single course of this extraordinary tonic. The gastric fluid
reacquires its solvent power, and the crude nutriment which
was a load and a burden to the sufferer, while his digestive or
ganization was paralyzed and unstrung, becomes unle.r the
wholesome revolution created in the system, the basis of strength,
activity and health.
The Nervous sufferer, whether tormented by the acute, physi
cal agony of Neuralgia, Tic-Doloreux, or ordinary Headache,
affiicled with vague tremors, weakened by periodical fits, threat
ened with paralysis, borne down and dispirited by that terrible
lassitude which proceeds from a lack of nervous energy, or ex
periencing any other pain or disability arising from the unnatu
ral condition of the wonderful machinery which connects every
member with the source of sensation, motion aud thought—de
rives immediate benefit from the use of this Cordial, which at
once calms, invigorates and regulates the shattered nervous or
ganization.
Females who have tried it, are unanimous in declaring the
ELIXIR to be the greatest boon that woman has ever received
from the hands of medical science.
MORSE’S IN VIGORATING ELIXIR has a direct, Immedfete
and astonishing effect upon the appetite. While it renews the
strength of the digestive powers, it creates a desire for the solid
material which is to be subjected to their action. As an appeti
zer it has no equal in the Pharmaconia.
If long lire* and the vigor necessary to its enjoyment, are de
sirable, this medicine is indeed of precious worth. Arabia,
where the principal ingredients in its composition have been
used for ages by the wandering tribes, has been noted from the
earliest period of history for the longevity of its inhabitants; and
they universally regard it as a means of prolonging human ex
istence beyond the ordinary span. In the CORDIAL this pecu
liar property is not only preserved, but rendered more effective
by concentration.
Its beneficial effects arc not confined to either sex or to any age.
The feeble girl, the ailing wife, the listless, enervated youth, the
overworn man of business, the victim of nervous depression, the
individual suffering from general debility or from the weakness
of a single organ, will all find immediate and permanent relief
from the use of this incomparable renovator. To those who
have a predisposition to paralysis, it will prove a complete and
unfailing safeguard against that terrible malady. There are
many, perhaps, who have so trifled with their constitutions, that
they think themselves beyond the reach of medicine. Let not
even these despair. The ELIXIR deals with disease as it exists,
without reference to causes, and will not only remove the disor
der itself, but rebuild the broken constitution. Brought from a
vast distance, the principal ingredients of tlie ELIXIR can only
be procured at a heavy expense, and the process of manufacture
is also costly. Hence tlie price, to be at all remunerative, must
necessarily be higher than that of the trashy, chance compound
ed nostrum, of which the only expense coatilsts in the adverti
sing. But if health iyndeed a “priceless blessing,” thenisthe
INVIGORATING EDIXIB and CORDIAL the cheapest medi
cine in the known world.
The derangement of the system, leading to nervous diseases,
and the forms of nervous diseases itself, are so numerous, that
it would require a column to enumerate the maladies for which
this preparation is a specific. A few, however, may be enume
rated, viz.: neuralgia, tic-doloreaux, headache, incipient paraly
sis, hysteria, dyspepsia, palpitation of the heart, spinal affection,
muscutar debility, tremors, flatulence, a prickling sensation in
the flesh, numbness, torpidity of the liver, mental depression,
weakness of the will, indisposition to move, faintness after ex
ercise, broken sleep, and terrifying dreams, inability to I‘cmain
in one place or position.
[From an old Druggist.!
New York, March 5, 1858.
Mr. C. H. Ring: I was induced to try your “Morse’s Invigo
rating Cordial,” and I say It for the benefit of those suffering
as I was, that it is the best nervous medicine extant, whether the
neuralgia and the thousand ills in its train are produced by natu
ral causes or by excess iu drinking ; on myself it has acted won
derfully. I have now appetite, have gained iu flesh, sleep is uow
refreshing, my nervousness almost disappeared, and I think I
have a new lease of life ; and with the taking of one more bottle
of this most pleasant remedy, I doubt uot I shall feel almost as
well as I did twenty years ago.
Most gratefully yours, J. W. F.,
Late of Glastenburg, Conn., and Norfolk. Va.. and formerly

Plainfield, New Jersey, April 3, 1854.
Mr. C. H. Ring—Dear Sir : I have beeu engaged in the practice
of medicine in the county of Delaware, State of New York, for
forty years or more, until one year ago last fall, I moved to this
place, in hopes to benefit my health by change of climate. For
four or five years past I have been incapacitated to attend to my
calls in my profession. My sufferings, from general debility and
prostration of the physical and mental powers, were almost insup
portable, and at times rendered life a burden. A few days since,
being in the city, I called at your office aud procured a bottle of
Dr. Morse’s Invigorating Cordial, and have been taking it
according to directions. I feel a decided improvement in my
health, and confidently believe that a few more bottles will re
store me to comfortable health. I send you this statement as a
token of my gratitude to the author of this invaluable medicine,
and you are at liberty to make sush use of it as you vlease.
Respectfully yours, DAVID DEWEY, M. D.
Extract of a letter received from Raymond & Patteu, Louisville:
Louisville, Ky., March 30, 1854.
Mr. C. H. Ring—Dear Sir: Morse’s Cordial has sold remarkably
well, and seems to give general satisfaction. One old gentleman
(a physician) says It did him more good in a week than any medi
cine he has ever tried in all his life. He was troubled with a sort
of paralysis or neuralgia of one side. A gentleman who used it,
thought the first bottle did him uo good; but he says he was well
about the time he commenced on the third. In fact, we have
beard so many favorable reports from it that we think it a sort of
Oood Samaritan, and destined to do so much good.
Respectfully yours, RAYMOND & PATTEN.

Br. WalsJiman’s Diarrhsea, Dyssnfery,
and Cholera Cure, prepared from the original recipe of Dr.
Walshman, for fifty years a practicing Physician in Loudon.
The Summer and Autumnal Dysenteries, Ac., that year after
year carry off multitudes of children, in spite of doctors aud
nurses, and which figure so frightfully in the weekly returns of
mortality, are in all oases immediately arrested and rapidly
cured by this active and efficient, yet harmless, medicine. For
several years Dr. Walshman noted down in his diary the effects
of the preparation in each particular case of Dysentery and
Diarrhcea coming under his observation in an extended private
practice, and in a letter upon the subject addressed to an emi
nent member of the Faculty of Medicine in the London Univer
sity, he says : “Out of eleven hundred cases in which I have
prescribed it, I have known but two where it has beeu alleged
to fail, and in both these instances I had the strongest-reason for
believing that it had never reached the stomach of the patient!”
MOTHERS
should bear in mind that two hundred thousand children die an
nually in this country of Diarrhcea, Dysentery, and other laxa
tive complaints, which attack with greater or less virulence
nearly every household in the land during the summer and fall
months. Parents who value the lives of their offspring will re
joice to learn that Dr. Walshman’s DIARRHCEA and DYSEN
TERY CURE subdues and removes fiiose diseases with tbe same
uniform and infallible certainty that the application of a given
rule solves a mathematical problem. The medicine contains the
legitimate antidote to these maladies, and can no more fail to
extinguish them than water can fail to extinguish fire.
ASIATIC CHOLERA,
which in its periodical visitations sweeps off a larger number of
victims than all other diseases combined, and which threatens to
become endemic in some portions of the South and West, may
be stayed in its desolating march by the prompt use of Walsh
man’s CHOLERA CURE. At the first symptom of Diarrhoea,
instant recourse should be had to this Specific, which should be
kept on hand in every family and administered as a preventive
(as well as cure) whenever and wherever Cholera appears—
whether as an epidemic or of the sporadic type. The effect of
the medicine is marked and immediate. It checks the spasmo
dic symptoms, soothes the irritated mucous membrane of the
bowels, and invigorates the vital system by imparting oxygen to.
the blood and energy to the circulation. If the remedy be ad
ministered in time, no fear of cramps or collapse need be enter
tained. Its exhibition will be followed by a gentle perspiration
and the rapid abatement of the most alarming symptoms.

Pensonet & Meyer’s Infallible Liquid
HAIR DYE.—This is a new article just presented to the public.
The proprietors have made the human hair the study of their
lives, and having had occasion to use the thousand and dne spe
cifics which ignorant charlatans palm upon the public, they are
enabled to judge of their injuriousness. After the invention of
the present Dye, they for a long wldle, content to satisfy their
own customers, made use of it only in their own business ; but
its merits becoming known, they were absolutely compelled to
bring it before the public. Here it has been but a short time,
yet its succass has Wen unprecedented. Requests for the ap
pointment of its sale have poured in by every mail,
white the orders fSrahe article itself have almost exceeded the
ability of the proprietors to supply. Its merits may be curtly
summed up as follows : It is easily applied, and can be used by
all without danger, full directions accompanying each bottle.
It does not color the hair by scorching, like other preparations,
but acts upon it by a newly discovered chemical power. Recent
researches show that the hair is triangular, and in its natural
state possesses ail the powers of the prism. To restore this pris
matic virtue is the theory of this Hair Dye. It also gives the
fibres their soft and glossy texture, and protects the sacs in which
all of them terminate. It does not stain the skin, and is the only
compound of the kind upon which perfect reliance can be placed,
as it never fails in giving a beautiful and natural black or brown
color to the him-, whiskers or eyebrows.
The proprietors are prepared to furnish it in large or small
quantities. Price $1 and $1 50 per bottle according to size.
Liberal deduction to those who buy to sell again.
In answer to lite numerous inquiries from every part c Hhe
country, Messs. D. & M. would say that if there be no agent
who sells their Dye in the vicinity where the party wishing it
resides, by inclosing $1 a bottle will be forwarded. Persons
sending requests for tbe agency of it will please state plainly
the place or district in which they wish to dispose of it.

It has become quite a matter of superfluity to commend

behalf (on the part of the thousands who have used them

of a word in their praise from other quarters. Doubtless the
cheapness of these popular remedies contributes, in a certain
degree, to the wonderful sale of them; yet we are fully of opin
ion that, were the prices of them doubled, tlie falling off in the
sates would be scarcely perceptible. It is their efficacy, an!
not cheapness, which has rendered them so popular. They are

sl. Years Of suffering of mental and physical anguish, to ma
ny an affectionate wife, mid pecuniary difficulties to the hus
band might have been spared by a timely possession of this
work. It is intended especially for the married, or those con
templating marriage, as it discloses important secrets which
should be known to them particularly. Here, also, every female
—the wife, the mother—the one either budding into womanhood,
or the other in the decline of years, in whom Nature contem
plates an important, change, can discover the causes, symptoms
and the roost efficient remedies, and the most certain mode of
cure, in every complaint to which her sex subject.
[Extract of a letter fi’om a gentleman In Dayton, Ohio.]
“Dayton, May 1, 1852.
Dr. A. Mauriceau, No. 129 Liberty-st. :—My Dear Sir :—My
wife Las been perceptibly sinking for some three years or more, in
consequence of her great anguiah and Buffering, some months be
fore and during her confinement—every successive one more and
more debilitating and prostrating her, and putting her life in-im
minent danger, aud which was, on the last occasion, despaired of.
1 supposed this state of things was inevitable, and resigned my
self to meet the worst. At this time, (uow about two mouths,)
I heard your Look highly spoken of, as containing some matters
reaching my case. On its receipt and perusal I cannot express to
you tbe relief it afforded my distressed mind, and the joy its pages
imparted to my wife, qn learning that the great discovery of M.
M. Dasomeux provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to me
which I little conceived was possible. But for this, ere another
year would have passed over my head, iu all human probability
my wife could have beeu iu her grave, aud my children mother

Plfoi-'. HART AND CORRUPT OFFI-
CIALS. —Inconsequence of the publication of a sort of
police report in two or three of the daily papers, in many re
spects false, and calculated to do me much injury, I request
the privilege of making a correct statement in the columns of
the Dispatch. The report was relative to an attempt to have me
arrested on a criminal charge of violating the laws of the State
by-setting up and carrying on a lottery, .tc., de. The comnlaint
was made by a notorious attache of the Jefferson Market Police
Court. J ustice Stewart f ranted the warrant, which was placed in
the hands of the complainant, who with a superior in oOice and
another, a comrade in iniquity, hurried off to the World’s Hall,
elated with high hopes of a rich harvest. But it so h tppened
that neither I nor the o.her two persons named in the warrant
were there, we being absent on business. It also happened
that the clerk was not in the office just at that moment, but a
gentleman in business down town, in no way connected with
the establishment, was there, and him the valiant officers
took in'o custody, despite his repeated assurance that
they had nothing to do with him. They then seized a
number of girls in my employ, who were descending
the stairs from the folding room, on their way home to dinner.
[ Next they began breaking in the door of die hall, without de
manding admission, and when they knew the parties sought
were not within. '1 he door was riotously stove in, and the
cowards rushed through into the publishing rooms wi*h drawn
clubs where with bullying words and terrifying manner they ar
rested half a dozen more girls who were quietly ex’ing dinner
from their baskets. This was not enough for one of them,
though, for (as he being bound to make some
thing by the operation, and finding nobody who seemed dis
posed to “shell out,” they took to tantalizing, and in various
ways frightening and aimoying the girls, who had not as yet
discovered what the ruffians were af er. Yes, they even.laugh
ed at and made game of the frugal meals contained in the girl’s
baskets, and otherwise wantonly insulted them. -The most
lecherous fellow laid hands upon one of the girls, and attempt
ed what he met with a repulse for, so unexpected and telling,
as made him observe more decency thereafter. I very much
>egret that I was not present when all this happened. Had I
b. en there the uncfflcer-like fellows would have been punished
on the spot for their outrageous conduct. Finding they should
gain nothing by persisting in their molestation and annoyance
of the girls, they resumed the search for plunder. Ticket and
money boxes, drawers and packages were peeped into, and
every rook and corner searched, but neither hidden treasure
nor concealed culprits could be found. So they called in a car
man to carry off their booty, consisting of a lot of U. S. mail
bags, perhaps 5,000 copies of the Pictorial, then nearly ready
lor the I’osr Office, Ac. Ac. The only person they managed to
take to the Police Court was the gentleman arrested in the
office, whose evidence was unexpectedly discovered to be pre
cisely the reverse of what the complainant wanted. He was
therefore discharged.
Now, I wish it understood, far and wide, that this prosecution
was instituted out of spite, and to make money, which I can
prove by creditable witnesses, and from the confessions of the
scoundrels at the bottom of it. Of course I shall make them suf
fer for demolishing the Hall door (which they did unlawfully),
and also for plundering the establishment; though the mail
bags and papers were very properly returned again, by order
of justice Stuart. The girls are also preparing to make the
fellows smart for their insults and abuse,
I might here remark, that I am alone responsible for the
alleged violation of the law by the “Gift Enterprize of the
Whole World.” Imention this in justice to Mr. C. Ashton Han
kins, whom the complainant alluded to above has wrongfully
charged with being concerned with me in my enterprise. Mr.
Hankins has been engaged at the World’s Hall as Descriptive
Lecturer ever since 1 first opened the Exhibition, and is now
also employed by me to superintend the publication of “The
Whole World,” but has no interest in, or connection with, the
Gift Enterprize whatever.
I will not acknowledge that I have in any way violated the
laws of the State, aud am as determined as ever to fight my
way against all opposition; and shall continue to go on as here
tofore, and carry out my undertaking despite the many at
tempts to stop me—and that, too, without being frightened into
the paying of hush money.
To conclude I have taken no particular pains to avoid a col
lision with the officers deputed to apprehend me, and am still
as visible as ever at the World’s Hall and elsewhere, pursuing
the “eren tenor of my way.” No less than a dozen indefatiga
ble shadows were sent out after me the other day, with instruc
tions not to return without their prisoner, and I don’t see why
they fail to do their duty. Meanwhile, of course, my office is
still open, and business going on as briskly as ever, and will
continue so until the 300,030 subscribers are obtained for “The
Whole World,” which journal will afterwards continue to
flourish a permanent publication, forever.
Yours, respectfully. Ac.,

Tninfamable remedy for
CHOLERA and all other morbid evacuations of the bow
els, if taken as directed, before the patient has sunk below the
reach of medicine.—This extraordinary specific is known as
‘ THE LIFE PRESERVER, or HUNT’S RESTORATIVE
CORDIAL.” It has been partially in use since the Cholera of
1832, though not published until the cholera of 1849, since which
the accumulating testimonials and solicitations of its patrons
have induced the proprietor (who, it may not be improper to
state, has resided in the same, the Ninth Ward of the city of
New York, nearly twenty-eight years, and where the Cordial is
extensively used) once more to give it general publicity. Among
the old testimonials embodied in a volume, the number and re
spectability of which would carry conviction to every reader,
the following are respectfully offered, as illustrative of the na
ture and merits of this Cordial. Dr. Gleason, author of the first
communication, is now residing at his old homestead, the field
of bis former professional labors, in Franklin County, in this
State. Thos Shankland, Esq., now resides in this city. His.
talents and professional standing require no eulogy from the
undersigned. The communication of Harvey F. Aubery. Esq.,
who is an old resident of this city, and a prominent and active
member of one of the most popular, worthy and benevolent in
stitutions in the country—the fraternity of Old Fellows—cannot
fail to be read with interest:
Medical Notice. —To the Editors of the New York Tribune
Permit me, through your columns, to recommend to the public a
medical preparation which I have used the present season with
great success in the prevailing epidemic, dysentery, diarrhoea.
Ac. Tll6 gentleman to whom the public are indebted for this val
uable medicine informs me that he has used it for seventeen
years in his family for dysentery or bloody flux, and all other
bowel complaints, and that in no case has it failed in giving
prompt and permanent relief; that he first prepared and used it
in his family and among his friends, with invariable success, of
which he bus ample testimony, in the cholera in 1832, during
which period he devoted his whole time and attention to the
study of the disease and the various modes of treatment em
ployed. The medicine in question is a rich and powerful medica
ted Cordial, combining stimulant, anti-spasmodic, diuretic, ano
dyne and nutritive qualifies. The stimulants contained are such
as act consecutively ; the first, say within ten seconds, and con
tinuing twenty minutes ; the second beginning with that period
and exerting its force for one hour ; the third and fourth follow
ing in like order, with increased duration of action, by which
their consecutive and united influence are exerted upon the sys
tem for six successive hours, renewing vital energy by impart
ing tone and nourishment to the stomach and bowels, arousing
the brain to a healthy action, quieting nervous Irritability, al
laying the spasms, and producing a healthy glow upon the skin,
by regulating andjdetermining the fluids from their morbid inter
nal tendency, to the external surface of the body, thereby affoj|a
ing to nature an opportunity of exerting her healing influences
Knowing the component ingredients of this Cordial, (soma of
which or used the basis of a medicine which I used so successful
ly in tie cholera of 1832 at Montreal,)'and having used It with
infallible succss the present season, I can speak with assurance
relative to its efficacy in all bowel complaints, for which, i i con
sequence of its uon<-ccnstlpatliifr qualities <is a specific, it Is the
most complete, safe and infallible remedy that I have ever used
or Known, and one which will eventually become a standard me
dicine. SEWALL GLEASON, M. I).,
No. ?1, Ann st., New York.
New York, Sept. 8, 1849.
New York, Sept. 2, 1849.,
In the year 18S2 I had a severe attack of Asiatic cholera, which
case was pronounced fatal by two physicians, and so published.
As a fi st resort I took, aud was cured with “ Walter Hunt’s Re
storative Cordial.”
THOMAS SHANKLANLD, Lawyer, Jersey City.
To the Editors of the Tribune: Permit me to state, through the
medium of your paper, for the benefit of my friends and the pub
lic at large, that durjng the present cholera or prevailing epide
mic, I have kept in my establishment, for my own use and fiat
of my friends, “The Life Preserver, or Hunt’s Cholera Cordial,”
whiert 1 have used myself, and in my family, and have given to
my friends, and recommended to all as the best inedicino for the
prevention and cure of cholera, and all other bowel complaints,
that 1 have ever used or known. I have seen it given in so many
cases with beneficial J esuits, in many of which I am confident it
has been the means of saving life, that to express a doubt of tts
excellence would be denying the evidence of my senses.
H. F. AUBERY,
Aubery House, No. 81 Nassau street, New York.
Sept. 8, 1849.
The undersigned is fully aware that to put forth a specific as
an universal panacea justly detracts from the credit of its au
thor. He therefore wishes to limit his claims for the curative
properties of his Cordial, to three simple effects or results, viz.:
to restore, sustain and regulate vital energy. Hence its adap
tation to exhaustion or physical prostration, from any cause
whatever. For sale by WALTER HUNT,

asked since the grand burst-up of all the outsiders about the
Palace. The name is still there, but the man has rot been seen
for some months past. The reason is very plain—he is belter
employed. He can be found at the md place in the Fourth ave

gation. His motto— “ Something Good to Eat and Drink”—
served up as it should be, tidy and c-lean; with endeavors to

organs of the male ai±d female; 348 pages. Illustrated by a
great number of extraordinary specimens of colored plates,
equalling copper engravings in the delicacy of their finish, as
large as life. By H. BOSTWICK, M. D., Practising Physician
and Surgeon. Office, No. 594 Broadway.
Extract from the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal:
“It may be said, fearlessly, that this is decidedly and without
qualification, equal to BieSrd’s, the great French work, ox- Acton’s,
<1 London, on the same family of diseases; aud tho fact cannot be
denied or concealed, that he has produced a thorough, well-digest
ed, systematic treatise, which far surpasses anything of the kind
on this branch of r *'actice heretofore attempted fii this country,
and nothing prevent this able work from being spread ovex 1
the land. Price $10:
“ Dr. Bostwick is also the author of a special treatise on the
nature i.nd treatment of
SEMINAL DISEASES, IMPOTENCY, AND STEBILITY,
caused by self-abuse ; their terrible consequence, progress, and
cure. This is a subject of vital importance to young men, espe
cially such as expect to marry. There are no complaints more
dillicult to manage than these, and nothing but a scientific treat
ment can cure them. The Dr. has divided seminal diseases into
thiee different stages, and demonstrated them in a masterly man
ner. He has devised a new method of cauterizing the seminal
ducts, which is far superior to the old plan, and is attended with
scarcely any pain. This is an important book, and we look upon
it as calculated to do great good. It is the most truthful and use
ful woik of the kind ever before published, and should be iu the
hands of every young man in the land.”
