tended to ask leave topresent a bill of exceptions, and would
do ao within the twenty diys allowed by law. The prisoner
was then remanded, and will probably be brought up the last
day of the term for sentence. The punishment for manslaughter
in the second degree is State Prison for not less than four
nor more than seven years The next case
commenced was that of Charles Jager, for the alleged
murder of John Moran, by alleged stabbing and striking in a
Jbar-room in a basement In Albany-st., which prisoner attend
rted, and during some scuffle between deceased and another
person some time since. The trial occupied the whole of
and on Wednesday the case went to the jury, who,
after an absence of about three quarters of an hour, returned
into court with a verdict of guilty of manslaughter in the 3d
degree, (the punishment for which by statute is from two to
four years in th a State Prison.) The prisoner was then sen
tt need to the State Prison for the term of 3 years
, On Thursday afternoon, the trial of Charles Graham, under
an Indictment for murder, was called on. The prisoner is a
young man, dressed in the garb of a sailor, having on a light
blue shirt, without jacket, <tc. He is charged with causing the
death of Wilson on the Btt> of June last, on board ship Knick
erbocker, off Pier No. 6, N. R. Mr. Edmund Blankman, as
signed by the Court, assisted by his brother, Mr. B. J. Blank
man, appeared in his behalf; the District Attorney for the
prosecution. The case occupied but a few hours. It was
closed in the afternoon, and the Jury, after an absence of
about an hour, returned a verdict of manslaughter in the 3d
degree, and the prisoner was sentenced to 3 years in the State
Prison The trial of Wm. Fowkes, for the murder of
Edward Bogan, by shooting, was called up on Friday. The
prisoner is about 35 or 40 years of age, and the oldest prob
ably, of the prisoners under indictment this term. He is of
somewhat full person. Messrs. Spencer and Tallmadge ap
peared in his behalf, and Mr. Shepard, District-Attorney, for
prosecution. The prisoner kept a bar-room at No. 64 Frank
fort street, opposite the easterly corner of Jacob. The de
ceased, (we believe a laboring man,) with an acquaintance,
went into the bar room at a late hour at night. It is alleged
that prisoner pushed him out, an Immediately fired at him
from the door, causing the aeath of deceased. In defese it is
denied that prisoner fired the shot, but that it was fired by an
other person at tho time in the bar-room. A jury was im
panelled, when the District-Attorney opened the case, stating
the facts he expected to prove. The defense, he said, would
be as above, and he wished the jury particularly to note the
evidence as to that. Testimony was then taken. The pros
ecution rested early in the afternoon, and the defense pro
ceeded up to the hour of adjournment.
Examination of Bukglaus and Receivers
of Stolen Goods.—ln Brooklyn on Wednesday last, James
Allen, Jeremiah Sullivan, and Andrew Russell were brought
before Justice D. K. Smith, of the Special Sessions, by Of
ficers Mathews and Osborn of the First District Police, and
fully committed on charges of four separate burglaries per
petrated by them in the above city, between the 25d and 30th
of September last. One of these burglaries was committed
in the house of John H. Stockton, Dean street, near Nevin ;
one in the house of Frances H. Norris, No. 276 Bridge street;
one in the house of James W. Taft, No. 150 Duffield street;
and the other in the house of Capt. David Jackson, No. 231
Jay street, from all of which they stole a large amount of
property, a portion of which was found in their possession.
One vest, stolen from Stockton’s house, was found at the store
of Solomon Hanover, a second hand clothing dealer in Boe
rum street; three table clothe, stolen from Mrs. Norris,were
found at the same place. Hanover was likewise arrested,and
. upon examination, committed in full as a receiver of stolen
* goods. Edward Martin and Catharine his wife were also
brought up on the charge of having received a shawl and a
pair of boots, a part of the property stolen from the house of
Stockton, having paid $1 for the shawl which was valued at
S2O. Upon examination, they were likewise committed as
receivers. The officers engaged in this affair are deserving
of praise for the vigilant manner in which they have ferrited
out and brought to justice this gangcf burglars and receivers
who have evidently been preying upon the community for
many months past On Thursday, three colored
persons, who had been arrested in New York were brought
before the same Justice on a charge of having entered the houke
of Mr. Noell J. Bicar, on the corner of Henry and
Warren streets, Brooklyn, and stolen from thence a lot of sil
ver ware, which was found in their possession. According
to the statement of the prisoner Ann, it appears that John
f Williams, with a colored man named Joseph Jackson, came
to her house on the morning of the day she was arrested,and
gave her the articles with the request that she would sell
them, as Jackson was unable to go about the streets for that
purpose in consequence of a lame leg. She then went out
with ber husband, Ben Williams and John Williams, aud the
whole party were soon after arrested. Jackson has also been .
taken into custody, arid is now in confinement in New York.
A valuable gold watch and chain were found upon his per
son.

The following prisoners were arraigned and severally plead

Charge of Swindling Countrymen.—A
mau named George C. Holbrook was on Sunday arrested by
Officer Gallagher, of the Second District Police Court, charged
with swindling two young men out of $250. It appears that
the accused kept an office at No. 307 Broadway, up stairs,
and advertised for young men to sell an article in the country.
The complainants called upon him, and were required to de
< posit as security for their honesty $250, and then were sent
to a bookdealer in Ann st., where they received a large box
containing old novels and oiher trash, with which they were
sent to Philadelphia to sell at prices far above their value.
On finding that they could not make sale of the books, the
young men returned them, and demanded the money which
they had deposited as security, but this was refused them,
and they were told to go about their business. The prisoner
- was locked up for examination, and on Monday Justice
Stuart took the complaint of six young men against him, who
had all, as they alleged, been sufferers by his peculiar method
of doing business. He was again locked up for a further
examination.
Robbing a Grocery Store.—Policeman
Mackay and Van Duzer of the Tbird Ward, early on Tuesday
morning detected three men in the act of robbing the grocery
of John H. Morrel, No 280 Washington st. For some time
previous Mr. M. had missed goods from his store, and with a
view of detecting the thieves, procured the services of the
above named officers, and all watched at the store on Sunday
night. Between 6 and 7 o’clock in the morning they saw a
cart drive up to the door, with James Kelly, a grocer at Wil
liamsburgb, In it. He was soon joined by Lyman Johnson, a
colored man in the employ of Mr. Morrel, who had charge of
the store. The latter opened the door, and with the assis
tance of another negro, soon put into the wagon a barrel of
sugar, a demijohn of brandy and a keg of some other liquor,
with which Kelly was about driving oft, when the Police
*" pounced upon him and his companions and arrested all three.
They were committed to the Tombs for examination. It is
thought that Johnson, for some time past, has been in the
habit of stealing from the store and selling his plunder to
Kelly, who, by this means, was enabled to afford bargains to
hia customers.

offences by Anne Howard, the daughter of a gentleman then
holding a prominent position in one of the departments at
Washington. It was just previous to the publication referred
to, that an engagement of marriage between the parties, at

New Face Course at Nevada, Califor
nia.—A new race track has been laid out near Nevada, which
is called Glenbrook. It is a circular track, one mile iu
distance, and it is said will make a very good one after it has
been used some. The first race over it took place on the
27th of August, when there was a large attendance.
Trotting in San Francisco.—We learn
from the Daily Advertiser, that several brilliant matches
have been made to come off over the Pioneer Course during
the present month, between some of their best horses.. The
recent importations of blooded stock into that country, to
gether with the energy of Mr. Ellis, enables the Editor to
assure tho public that during the ensuing fall, the Pioneer
will aflbrd attractions equal, if not superior, to any course in
the world.
Facing in Georgia.—The Fall Meeting
over Ute Swift Course, near Atlanta, Ga., will commence on
the 14th of next month, and continue throughout the week.
Liberal purses will bo offered.
A Walking Match.—On Saturday, the
10th September, Frank Wheeler, the proprietor of the Gym
nasium on Battery street, San Francisco, accomplished the
feat of walking from that city to San Jose in eleven hours.
The “ Adveitiser” says :—This is quite a feat in pedestrian
ism, the distance being all of fifty-five miles—the day very
warm, a portion of the road ancle-deep in sand, and much of
the balance very dusty. The match was made against fifteen
hours, and the whole time occupied in accomplishing it was
thirteen hours—the start having beeen made from the Gym
nasium at 4.15, A. m., and Beatty’s Mansion House (the ter
minus) reached at 5.14, p. m. Tha stoppages consequently
reached two hours. The distance fiom San Francisco to the
Twelve Mile House, (a very sandy stretch for a considerable
part of the way) was done in two hours and twenty minutes,
and from San Meteo to the Pulgas, ten miles, in one hour
forty-five minutes. The object of the tramp was merely to
demonstrate to the pupils of the Gymnasium what a little
constant exercise can accomplish, and was of course emi
nently successful. Mr. J. S. Ellis, ons of Mr. Wheeler’s pu
pils, walked the whole distance with him, and both parties
came lu as fresh as clerks, with no seeming fatigue.
The Central New York Rifle Club.—
This Club met at their usual time, on the first Monday in Oc
tuber. Ihe weather being stormy, the shooting did not take
place until Thursday. Owing to the bad weather, several did
not stop to enjoy the sport. Present—Messrs. Barney, Per
king, V ish, James, Ferris, Hayden and Owen. The shooting
was done at 40 rods, to a strong wtod, with telescopic sights.
Mr. Ferris won the first prize, his ten shots measuring 19 7-3
Inches. Mr. James won the second prize, his ten shots mea
suring 14 6-8.
Foot Face at N. H.—Oa Friday, the 6th
tost., a foot race of half a mile came off on the Fair Grounds
at the above place, which was competed for by four athletic
youiig men, and resulted as follows :—Edward B. Wilder, of
Keene, Ist. Time, 2:39. Geo. H. Carroll, of Keene, 2d.
Time 2:51. G. P. Prentice, Winchester, 3d. Geo. Hxll, Man
chester, 4th.
Cricket. —Second Eleven of St. George's
re. Second Eleven of New York.— Thia match terminated on
Monday last, in a drawn game—the scores being so large on
both sides that they had not time to play it out. It ought, by
the custom of Cricket, to have been finished on Tuesday, but
owing to business arrangements several of the SL George
players could not attend, and on the other side some of the
New Yorkers could not play any o’her day this week. At the
close cf the play the St. George’s had the beet of it, thongh
ihe New Yorkers were pulling up in their second innings, and
no doubt it would have been an interesting and sharp contest.
New York went in first and scored 147 and St. George’s fol
lowed with 173—heading them 26 runs. For the second in
nings New York got 38 when time w'as called, with a loss cf 3
wickets.
York vs. Philadelphia.— The great match talked of so
much last season, between the New York Club and the Phila
delphia players, commences on Monday at Hoboken, and will
probably last two days. The Philadelphians are pretty good
crickelßrs, and will no doubt show some fine play. To-day
the students of the Free Academy play their return match a -
Harlem.
• -
Female Equestrianism.—At the recent
Fair at Gallatin, Tenn., a lady’s saddle was offered as a prize
for the best equestrian performance by a lady, and a diamond
ring for the second best. This novelty created much excite
ment and attracted an immense crowd of spectators. Four
ladles entered for the prize. They remained in the ring for
more than thirty minutes, and each showed great proficiency.
The first premium was awarded to Miss Matilda Walton, and
the second to Mrs. Dr. Malone. Ths young gallants of Sum
ner county subsequently purchased the horse ridden by Miss
Walton, and presented it to her, as an additional testimony of
their admiration and regard for her elegant performance.
Also, a diamond ring to each of the two ladies to whom prizes
were not awarded. The proceedings of the Fair at Catskill
closed on the 291 h ultimo, as did the late fair in Albany, with
an exhibition of horsemanship—by ladies. The contest was
conducted with spirit, and there being a number of competi
tors, this formed the most exciting feature of the entertain
ment. Thejudges, however, distributed the prizes as fol
lows : Miss Phinney, first prize, gold medal, S3O ; Miss Ray,
second prize, s.et of silver spoons; Miss Osborn, third prize,
set of silver spoons; Miss Taylor, fourth prize, set of silver
spoons.
Trotting Match Extraordinary. —On
Wednesday next the most interesting trotting match which has
taken place for years will come off over the Centerville
Course. The horses entered are the bay mare, Flora Tem
ple, and the bay gelding, Jack Waters. The match is for
$2,000, and the conditions are mile heats, best 3 in 5, in
harness, Hiram Woodruff to drive the mare, and D. Pilfer
the gelding. Probably more money will change hands on
the result of this contest than was ever before laid out oa a
similar occasion, as the superior merits of both horses are
well known to every patron of the trotting turf, and for some
time past the match has been the general theme of conversa
tion. Recently some of the best trotting horses in the coun
try have contended both in matches and for purses, but it is a
long time since those holding watches have been called upon
to do very low figuring in the matter of time. The contrary
will doubtless be the case on Wednesday next, for Flora Tem
ple has given indubitable evidence of her extraordinary
speed, in vanquishing all the best horses of the diy, Highland
Maid, Taconey, Mac and Black Douglas among the number,
while Jack Waters has never yet been beaten and is looked up
on as Invincible. The match may be regarded as a trial for the
championship of the trotting turf, and if the horses come to
the stand in first-rate condition, the fastest time on record may
be looked for. Flora Temple wilUdoubtless be the favorite
at odds, but she will have all she wants to do to beat her op
ponent, for Jack will “give a good account of himself,” sure,
and we should’nt wonder a bit if he “raked the persimmons,”
for ho certainly is, as a well known sporter would express it,
“a very soon horse,” and a safe one to bet on. Every fa
cility will be offered the public to reach the course, both by
stage and railroad, and the affair will come off rain or shine.
A larger crowd than ever before assembled at the Centerville,
will meet there on Wednesday next, or we miss our guess.

The Lost Heiress : By Mrs. Sonthworth,
author of the Deserted Wife, Ac., Ac. Pp. 501. T. B Pe
terson. Philadelphia.
Mrs. Emma Southworth is well and favorably known as
he authoress of several well written family novels, and her
reputation will be enhanced by the present production. The
title will give an idea of the plot of the story, which is by no
means a rare one ; but the authoress has portrayed the vari
ous characters with an extraordinary fidelity with regard to
to the impulses and sentiments which actuate humanity. The
moral is an excellent one, and the story intensely interesting.
The character of the Governor Hunter, risen from obscurity
by the force of'his own talent, indusfryand integrity—always
acting according to “principle,” is beautifully drawn ; and
still more graceful and beautiful is the character of his de
voted wife. The Lost Heiress must take a high rank amongst
theflworks of fiction of its class, of which it is indeed a model
worthy of imitation. The book is very handsomely got up,
and illustrated with an excellent portrait of the authoress
and a plate representing her sweet return home on the banks
of the Potomac.
The Ladie’s Complete Guide to Crochet—
Fancy Knitting and Needle Work. By Mrs. Ann S.
Stephens, Authoress of Fashion and Famine. New York,
Garrett A Co., No. 18 Ann street.
This Is an invaluable work for the ladies. We understand
but little of the subject upon which it treats ; but we know
that Crochet work is highly esteemed as an accomplishment,
and we believe as yet no treatise nor regular systematic
work upon it has appeared—certainly none equal to this be
fore us. A knowledge of Crochet is calculated to educate the
eye, give delicacy to the touch and exercise to the mind—ar.d
we should judge that the terms are in Mrs. Stephens’s work
so clearly explained, that any one who knows how to read
can learn in a few hours how to execute in a masterly style
the most complicated patterns of crochet and fancy knitting.
The book is, moreover, very neatly and elegantly got up and
illustrated.
The Man of War’s Man. By Eugene Sue.
Author of the Wandering Jew, Ac., Ac. Bunce A Brother,
124 Nassau street, New York—paper 25.
This is a moral romance said to be written by Eugene
Sue—and translated from the French. We have no great
faith in the Material of French Novel Stories—still the work
we now speak of, although failing in the technecalities of a
moral novel—is full of adventure and sparkling incidents. It
is by French—and will be read with interest by those
who are fond of that exciting style.
One Link in the Chain of Apostolic Sue
cession; or, the Crimes of Alexander Borgia. Boston:
E. W. Hincks A Co. 1854.
This story originally appeared in the columns of thq Know
Nothiag—n paper which, it will be known to the great major
ity of our readers, has, although recently started, attained a
wide circulation, it being devoted to the exposition of the pe
culiar tenets of that party who “know nothing” themselves,
and who nobody'“knows nothing” about.
It Is a vivid and exciting story, and our explanation of its
origin will sufficiently explain its character and the object of
its author, whose name is not given. It bears a singular de
dicailon—being dedicated to Archbishop Hughes, as a token
of eternal enmity, with the hope that it will be instrumental
in awakec ing Amer leans to their duty aud to forming a bulwark
of defence against foreign and papal aggression. We advo
cate no sectarian animosities, and therefore shall not criticize
the book more closely.
Smith’s Illustrated Astronomy.—Designed
for the use of public or common schools—by Asa Smith.
New York Daniel Burgess A Co., No. 60 John street 1854.
This is an admirable work—eminently adapted to its ob
ject—that of teaching youth the rudiments of Astronomy,
and by no means uninteresting to children of a larger
growth.
The plates and diagrams are beautifully and clearly exe
cuted. Any one can understand them.
It is without exception the best Introductory work to this
interesting though abstrue science that we have ever seen—
and in our opinion ts calculated to give at a glance, a more
accurate knowledge of the constellations, the planets, and
their revolutions round the sun, and all the vast ma chtoery
of the universe than could be acquired to months according
to the ordinary system of teaching and the ordinary ele
mentory astronomical books used in schools.

Peculiar Success of Peculiar Attrac
tions. —Aye, and pecuniar success we may also call that,
which always and invariably meets the burlesque Operas
produced by the Buckleys at their pleasant establishment,
539 Broadway. It has heretofore been a maxim, or at least
it was supposed impossible, successfully to burlesque a comic
or semi-comic Opera. The Buckleys in their production of
Fra Diavolo have overthrown the maxim, and made the
seemingly impossible, an easy execution. The ludicrous
scenes of the original Opera arc rendered doubly funny aud
ludicrous, by the addenda of black faces, comic wigs and in
troduced Ethiopian melodies. Let no one, however, suppose
from this, that the original music of the Opera is slighted;
on the contrary full justice is done to most of the concerted
pieces, and nothing could be better than G. Swain Buckley’s
clever singing of “Young Agnes.” Fra Diavolo will con
tinue the attraction during the ensuing week, but not alone,
for by a general and unanimous request, the Burlesque on

please. Wood never allows a week to pass by without
striking out some new feature in his business, and his last
move was to introduce a number of interesting children, who
are to perform a variety of fancy dances in white character.
The resuscitation of Mechanic’s Hall as a place of amusement
is not the first wonder of the kind which Wood has achieved,
but it is certainly the greatest. We perceive that Frank
Brower, the great dancer, is also engaged at this establish
ment.
The Man from Block Island. —A man
came up to the city from Block Island, last week, with his
umbrella in his hand and a bandanna handkerchief around
his neck. He went about the city to see the curiosities of the
place, aud buy some pumpkin seeds of the long-necked kind.
He bad but one acquaintance in the city and wanted to see
him. He inquired for him at all the grocery stores, but no
body knew him. So he gave up in despair, and went up the
Bowery. His attention was soon attracted by the great eagle
on the top of Hiram Anderson’s splendid Carpet store, and
he determined to get his pumpkin seeds there. Rut. when he
entered and caught sight of those magnificent carpets and
window shades, he forgot all about his pumpkin seeds, and
laid out his money for a carpet and window shades. This
is the history of a thousand people: the man from Block
Island is not alone. The astonishing cheapness of the goods
at 99 Bowery is never dreamed of by those who have not
called there and investigated for themselves. This is the rea
son that all the ladies crowd to 99 Bowery. Strangers in the
city would do well to remember the man from Block Island,
and imitate his example.
The Coming Elections.—As a matter of
course, there will be as usual a wonderful demand upon the
patience of the public-Orators of all shades, stripes and
sections, will display their vocal ability and strength of lungs
in the endeavor to make their own cause good, and mar that
of their opponents. Many a public speaker has under such
circumstances felt the deepest chagrin at the loss of his voice
through over exertion, and that most disagreeable infliction
kt own as “a cold in the head”—which has had the effect of
neutralising all his efforts and rendering him in fact, power
less—let every public speaker, therefore, take care to provide
himself with the new and infallible safeguard, Duruos’
Catarrh Snuff—which is a safe, certain, and immediate
cure for Catarrh in its worst forms, deafness, inflamed eyes,
and many other affections of the head. A single pinch of this
delicious compound acts like a charm. Duruos Catarrh
Snuff can be produced wholesale and retail by S. C. Jollie,
300 Broadway.
Luck in Odd Numbers! —No. 141 Spring
street and No 15 Carmine street have been doing an im
mense business during the past week. Those stores are
daily crowded with an immense assemblage of ladies, whose
patronage fully testify to the cheapness and variety of the
stock. In consequence of such well merited success, they
have been induced to purchase most extensively at the auc
ton sales, (during the past week,) an immense variety of
Brocbe and Vienna Shawls, Plain Brocade and Plain Silks,
Mertooes, Paramattas, Wool Plaids, Cashmeres, De Laines,
Ac., Ac., which will be sold as heretofore, at a scale of prices
lower than any other house in this city. Ladies making any
pretensions to economy (during those so.called “hard times,”)
should prove their sincerity by paying a visit to the estab
lishments of Thomas A James, No. 141 Spring street, corner
of Wooster, and No. 15 Carmine street, corner of Bleecker.
There is much Saved by buying your Dry
Goods at Columbian Hall, as all the Ladies have known these
ten years. But just for curiosity, look at their Woollen Goods,
Merinoes, Paramattas, Shawls, Fall and Winter Dress
and Dry Goods, with an immense quantity of Flannel Blank
ets in every variety. Those seasonable goods, sold at the
usual low prices for which the Messrs. Towle are so famous,
present to housekeepers the rarest opportunities to lay in
their useful goods for the coming winter. This will doubtless
stir up those whom business has heretofore prevented from
reflecting on the approaching snow storms and freezing winds.
Messrs. S. A M. E. Towle will be found, as usual, at Colum
bian Hall, 281 Grand street.
John Bull in America. —We have had
enough of John Bull in the Mediterranean and Black Sea,
where he is rather dilatory in his operations, aud is of little
advantage to Turkey after all. Mr. Bull has introduced his
Sarsaparilla, an article that is far more efficient than his name
sake to Sou'hern Europe. This Sarsaparilla is very popular
in the South, aud wherever it is known, it is esteemed as the
best as well as the most palateable purifier of the blood ex
tant. The vast amount of cures performed by Mr. Ball’s Sar
saparilla, both at the South and to other parts of the country,
are its best eulogy. Mr. Bull may be found at Gilsey’s
Building, No. 2 Courtlandt street.
“The Blest Abode of Edwin and of
Mary.”— We observe that the most pleasant and romantic
dwelling in the country known as the Clifton House, that
Gothic Cottage (with twelve and a half full lots) will be sold
on Wednesday next without reserve. The purchaser of this
little Paradise will be a happy man. It is certainly the most
delightful place that we ever saw or heard of. It is on
S a'en Island, within a minute’s walk of Vanderbilt’s Landing.
It will be sold without reserve by Albert H. Nicolay, No. 4
Broad street, on Wednesday, October 18th. A word to the
wise is— nv_ff scd.
The immense success of Mrs. Lyon Isaacs,
proprietor of this superior establishment, No. 5 Division st.,
is semething new even in this day of enterprise and steam
power. Her Fall Goods, Bonnets, Mantillas, Cloaks and
other choice goods have received the highest meed of praise
from the roost fashionable of our citizens, while the great
patronage afforded her establishment enables her to sell at
a much lower rate than any other store to the city. This
magnificent establishment is at No. 5 Division street, and
noihtog is sold here which is not the very best of its kind.
Good bargains are made everyday at this store.
“ Use How’s Cough Candy ” is a sentence
engraved upon the minds of patients suffering from pulmona

from its efficacy has grown into very general use for coughs,

thus afflicted, should give it a triaL They will be satisfied
with the investment.

matters in fine style at this establishment.
The Fall Style Exhibited at Mealio’s
famous establishment are the best we have yet seen. The
bats and caps that he has got out this season receive the
highest praise from the fashionable world. This jewel of a
store is on the corner of Broadway and Canal-street, and is
the chief point of attraction in that quarter of the city.
Grass grows in the Spring, but the human
hair comes out at any season of the year that you please to

The Great Amerlean Hair Tonie.—
BOGLE’S celebrated HYPERION FLUID, for the growth and
preservation of the Hair, is well known to be without a rival
on this continent.—Hundreds of imitations have started into an
ephemeral existence since the introduction of this unrivalled
Hair Restorative, and their doom, been sealed, whilst Bogie’s
Hyperion Hair Fluid, with a popularity never attained by
any other article, goes on “conquering and to conquer.”
There is no malady which can effect the Hair, but can be cured
by this incomparable preparation, 'to ladies it is invaluable
andon children’s heads it lays the Krandation of a good heal
of Hair. It is now patronized by her Majesty the Queen os’
Great Britain, and commands an extensive sale tnorough
out Europe.
BOGLE’S ELECTRIC HAIR DYE converts Red or Grey
Hair into a beautiful Black or Brown, the moment it is applied,
literally dyeing the hair, without staining the skin, and leaves
the hair soft and glossy, without injuring its texture in the
least—a decided superiority over all other Hair Dyes. '
BOGLE’S AMOLE SHAVING COMPOUND renders that
usually unpleasant operation (shaving) a decided luxury.
BOGLE'S HABEAIONA removes Freckles and Tab from
the face in the shortest possible time, and is acknowledged to
be the very best article for Beautifying the Complexion.

J. H. Thompson’s Instantaneous Liquid
HAIR DYE.—This Dye is, without any exception, the best ever
manufactured; nothing sold to America or Europe of any
other make will bear the least comparison with it. it will Dye
Red or Grey Hair to any shade of Brown or Black in one min
ute. and so long as the hair remains upon the head, that color
will never fade. It differs from all other Dyes in its effects
upon the fibres of the hair—as instead of making the hair harsh,
it renders it sol t and tractable, and produces a color which de
fies the closest scrutiny. It is beautifully scented with violet
and will keep any length of time.. The proprietor has the cer
tificates of Dr. Ure, Professors Button and Bell, of London, and
Dr. Chilton, of New York. The following Is that of Dr. Chilton:
“ Having examined the ‘ Hair Dye’ prepared by Mr. J, H.
Thompson, I can recommend it as being properly prepared and
well calculated to answer the purpose for which tt is intended.
“JAMES B. CHILTON, M. D., Chemist.
“New York, June Bth, 1854.”

Hygeana.— Brought home to the door of
the Million.—A wonderful discovery has recently been made by
Dr. Curtis, of this city, in the treatment of Consumption, Asth
ma and all diseases of the Lungs. We refer to “ Dr. Curtis’
Hygeana, or Inhaling Hygean Vapor and Cherry Syrup.”
With this new method Dr. C. has restored many afflicted ones
to perfect health; as an evidence of which he has innumerable
certificates. Speaking of the treatment, a physician remarks:
It is evident that inhaling—constantly breathing an agreeable,
healing vapor, the medicinal properties must come in direct
contact whh the whole of the arial cavity of the lungs, and thus
escape the many and varied changes produced upon them when
introduced into the stomach, and subjected to the process of di
gestion. The Hygeana is for sale at all the druggists’ through
out the country.—New York Dutchman of Jan. 14.
The inhaler is worn on the breast under the linen without he
least inconvenience—the heat of the body being sufficient to
evaporate the fluid.
Hundreds of CASES of CURES like the following might be
named. One Package of Hygeana has cured me of the ASTH
MA of six years standing.

Dr. Cheeseman’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.

s®“ Phalen’s Paphian Lotion, or Floral
Beautifier, infallible as a preservative of the Skin and Com
plexion, and as a means of eradicating or curing Freckles, Tan,
Pimples, Chapped Hands, Lips and Face, Blotches, Sun Burns,
Scalds, Burns, etc., and all Diseasesappertaining to the Skin.
PHALON’S PAPHIAN LOTION,
The most brilliant addition to the toilet which the present age
has witnessed, was the fortunate discovery of a distinguished
physician and Orientalist, who obtained the knowledge of its in
gredients, and tho method of combining them, while traveling
in India. The receipt or secret was purchased for $2,590 by
Edward Phalon, who, in the course of a long series of exper
iments, has so enriched, improved, and perfected the prepara-
to insure its reception as an indispensable and unequal
ed article for the toilet throughout the civilized world.
TO DESCRIBE
or even to enumerate, all the instances in which this peerless
beautifier may be recommended as an unfailing specific, would
occupy a volume; suffice it to state, that among its most impor
tant properties, is the power toimproveaharsh, pallid, bronzed,
mottled, or otherwise repulsive Complexion, and to substitute
the fascination of a delicate and dazzling white alternating with
a roseate bloom. Perhaps the blush that beautifies tie inner
surface of an ocean shell-, will give the best idea of the rich
transparent tint which it imparts to the cheeks, white no pearl
can surpass the exquisite fairness which it confers upon the
neck, hands, and arms
ITS EFFICACY
; to counteracting all injurious effects arising from exposure to
i the weather and change of climate, would be deemed incredi-
I blc if it were not authenticated by the highest testimony. Nei
! ther the freezing blast of the north, nor the blazing beat of the
south, cun destroy or impair the beauty of a complexion pro
tected by the regular application of the Paphian Lotion.
FAIR COMPLEXIONS
are, always’peculiarly susceptible of inflammatory influences.
Over exertion in warm weather frequently produces those un
pleasant and irritating eruptions known as rose-rash, nettle
rash, and prickly heat, on the face, neck, and arms of the most
beautiful blonde, and if not promptly attended to, may leave a
permanent blemish behind. The cooling, healing, and balmy
effect of tho Paphian Lotion is truly wonderful to cases of this
kind. It does not drive in the eruption, but gives activity to the
porous system, and causes the inflammatory principle or virus
to exale by insensible evaporation.
~ LADIES.
who, while nursing, suffer from sore or inflamed nipples, will
find immediate and unfailing relief from the use of the Paphian
Lotion, which, from its extraordinary power to allay irritation
and cool the mouth, may be truly said to render pleasing and
painless, both to mother and babe, the most delightful task im
posed by maternal duty. Ii is not, therefore, to be considered
one of the mere conventional appendages of the nursery, but as
an article of the first necessity in that department, and one that
no wise and prudent mother will omit from her list of iadispen
sables for her infant and herself.
CHAPPED HANDS AND LIPS.
One of the most painful consequences of severe weather to
ladies and children, is the chapping or cracking of the skin of
the hands. It Is a painful and annoying drawback to the
amusements of the gay winter season, interfering with the en
joyment of many a sleigh-ride, and marring the pleasure of
many a social evening by the excessive irritation which it occa
sions. Upon chapped, as also upon all roughness and exfolia
tions of the skin, occasioned by cold, the Paphian Lotion acts
like a charm, soothing and healing the inflamed and abraded
surfaces, softening the indurated cuticle, and restoring its inflex
ibility and transparency.
THE NURSERY.
To pass over in silence the peculiar adaptation of this balsamic
fluid to the use of children, and the purposes of the nursery,
would be on act of unkindness to the mothers of our land. As
a wash for infants, it cannbt be too highly recommended. It
promotes a healthy tone in the minute superficial vessels, so
apt to become torpid in tafancj’; and has a soothing, cooling
effect upon the tender and sensitive skin. Being not only per
fectly inoccuous, but eminently hygian in its nature, it may be
used by the most delicate lady, or applied to the most feeble
child, with perfect confidence in its harmlessness and salutary
f fleet. It imparts a silky texture to the young and tender skin,
and protects it against detriment from external influences.
IT IS BETTER,
however, to preserve intact the smoothness and beauty of the
skin, than to reproduce them after they have been partially de
stroyed by a low temperature; and as the chapping of the hands
may be effectually prevented by the use of the Lotion, at the
morning and evening toilet, it is desirable that ladies should thus
fortify their delicate fingers in advance against the trenchant
blasts of winter.
t TO GENTLEMEN „
who suffer from tenderness and smarting of the face after sha
ving, Phalon s Paphian Lotion will prove a most welcome
addition to the comforts and luxuries of the toilet; as it alleviates
the irritation and pain, and renders the shaven surface soft and
pliable.
Letter from James R. Chilton, Chemist.
I have analyzed the “Paphian Lotion” used for beautifying
the complexion, manufactured by Mr. Phalon, and find it to be
a harmless preparation, [and not in any way injurious to the
skin.
I believe ft will be found serviceable for the purposes it is in
tended. JAMES R. CHILTON, Chemist, 87 Chambers st.
To Edward Phalon, Esq., New York, Dec. 19th, 1853.
Letter from Madame Anne Thillon.
To Edward Phalon, Esq.—Dear Sir: If you think my opin
ion of you, “ Paphian Lotion” will have any weight with the
public, it is, I am sure, very much at your service: I have used
the preparation for some months past, and find it infinitely the
most efficacious and agreeable cosmetic that has ever graced my
toilet.
It unquestionably softens and improves the texture of the skin,
and adds to the brilliancy and clearness of the complexion.
I cannot be mistaken on these points, as by its timely applica
tion I have repeatedly removed such blemishes as are occasion
ed by sudden changes of the weather, to which I am particu
larly sensitive. It is not often that so-called “ aids to beauty,”
advertised to the world as infallible, fulfill even partially their
object, but your “Lotion,” so far as I am capable of judging,
is really what it purports, and I cordially recommend it to all
ladies who value a dear, unclouded complexion, or desire to be
protected against those annoying affections of the skin conse
quent upon the extremes of heat and cold. I am. Sir, yours
truly, ANNE THILLON.

y 75 Ct?.—Lauck’s Excelsior Hair Dye
A perfect Liquid Dye, instantaneous, permanent and harmless,
for coloring the Hair, Whiskers, and Moustaches, to any desired
shade, from a light brown to a jet black. It will not injure the
hair or stain the skin, can be used without regard to time or
weather, and is free of all the objections found in oilier Dyes—
such as bad odor, turning red, impermanence, Ac. The chemi
cal affinity of this liquid for the hair is astonishing; the instant it
is applied, quick as an electric spark, the color is set, and is im
movable, even if washed immediately. If the ladies knew how
much this Dye adds to their beauty when applied to their eye
brows, not one would be without it.
Price, 75 cents per box.

Pomade Optlme.— This splendid article
for the hair has been recently introduced into America by the
inventor and proprietor, J. H. Thompson. -It has been for some
time established in the principal cities of Europe, where it has
an enormous sale, and upwards of 15,000 testimonials, (to the
possession of the proprietor) give an undoubted warranty of its
high medicinal properties.) some of these are from the principal
physicians of England and France, amongst whom may be
named Erasmus Wilson, Sir Benjamin Brodie, Drs: Lis’on, Du
pris, De La Tour, and many others. Not satisfied with these
only, the proprietor, before offering it to the American people,
submitted it to that eminent chemist, Dr. Chilton, of New York,
who gave the following certificate:
Being acquainted with the composition of the “Pomade Op
tiiue,” manufactured by Mr. J. H. Thompson, I can state that
the article is well calculated to improve the growth and appear
ance of the hair.
JAMES R. CHILTON, M. D., Chemist.
New York, June 8, 1854.
This justly celebrated pomade contains no coloring matter or
essential oils. Its splendid perfume is obtained by digesting the
flowers of the verbena, heliotrope, and rose, with the articles
of which the pomade is composed. It will keep by this process
its magnificent scent any length of time, in any climate. It will
remove and entirely prevent any unhealthy accumulation of
dandriff, it will excite the coloring secretions of the hair and
prevent its turning grey or falling off. It immediately acts up
on the fibrous portion of the hair, rendering the most stubborn
and coarse hair pliant and tractable. Ladies using this pomade
will not require to wear any bonnet preserver, as it will not
soil the hat or the most delicate fabric upon which th** may
lay. Price 25 cents, 50 cents, sl, and $1 50 per bottle. Sold
wholesale and retail by the proprietor, at 6 Warren street, N.Y.
Upon the receipt of sl, (post-paid,) the amount will be
sent (in any size) by express to any part of the United States.

Barker’s CheveuxSoniqae.— 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,” <fcc.
anything that would restore the hair upon a lady’s head after it
had fallen oft'. 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 tonsonal 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 CHEVEUXTONIQUE,
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
the original power and vigor to the scalp. In effecting this, it
of course became necessary to combine with it medicjnal 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
Cheveuxtonique was so compounded as to be a sure cure for
Ringworm, Tetter, Scald Head, Headache, Incipient Erysipe
las, Inflamed Skin, and indeed all other diseases which affect the
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 of 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 head 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 onco to all who use it, putting
to flight all the nostrums and thousand and one humbugs of the
day.

are »1I acquainted with the great performances of Flora Tem
&le in her victories over Centreville, Black Douglas, Highland
!aid. Taconey and Mac, by which she acquired the sobriquet
of “ Mistress of the Turf,” and she is believed to be beyond
the reach of any nag at present in the world. The owner of
Jack Waters, however, is very sanguine of winning, and con
siders his horse the champion of the track. Before this match
was made, it was open to any horse in the world for months,
and none thought it safe to risk a match with him except the
trainer and driver of Flora Temple, Hiram Woodruff What
Jack Waters cai\ do remains to be seen. He never has been
beaten, either on the road or on the track, and he will keep up
his reputation as a “ Wind Spitter,” in the coining race, beyond
a doubt.

Centreville on the day of race to accommodate the public with
modes of conveyance to and from the course, by the Long

KECOMMEN D A T I O N ~
FROM PROF. JOHN J. OWEN, D. D.,
Of New York Free Academy. ‘ I have examined with much
pleasure ‘Tower’s Elements of English Grammar,’ and believe
that the habit of analysis which it promotes is, to the highest
degree, useful to the pupil. The faithful study of this little
book, under a competent teacher, will lay a foundation upon
which may be erected a grammatical superstructure of the most
massive and harmonious proportions. Instead of loading and
perplexing the mind with amass of dry and disjointed details,
the author, who is one of the best practical teachers in our
country, leads the pupil along, step by step, in the philosophical
analysis of sentences, addressing himself continually to the
reasoning powers of the young student, and with admirable
tact and arrangement of the parts, introducing him gradually
to the higher and more abstract principles of the language. I
hope this book, and the ‘ Gradual lessons in Grammar,’ which
is adapted to classes of a more advanced age and standing, will
be introduced into all our schools and academies. I ajn oonti
dent that it would promote the interests of sound edw* ‘•'q.”
Tower's Elements of Grammar is sent by mail,
by sending twenty-five cents to the publishers,

of medicines in such a manner that they are conveyed into the
lungs in the form of vapor, and produce their action at the very
seat of the disease. The practical success of Dr. Hunter’s
treatment is destined to revolutionize the opinious of the medi
cal world on this subject; to establish the entire curability of
Consumption, and to diminish incalculably the frightful ravages

Breath, Spitting of Blood, Hemorrhage from the Lungs, &c.,
Ac.

Diagnosis, or the Means of detective Disease in the Lungs.
Auscultation, Precussion andPulmometry.
A new instrument for measuring the quantity of air received
by the Lungs.
V. Proofs of the “ Cubability of Consumption.”—Opin
ions of eminent English, French and American physicians.
VI. The Treatment of Consumption.
1. By Remedies Administered through the Stomach —its ill
success.
2. By Remedies Administered through the Skin, Washes,
Tarter Ointment, Croton Gil—causes of failure.
3. By Change of Climate; at What Stage Beneficial; When In
jurious ; Climates roost favorable ; Statistics ; Views of Sir
James Clark, Prof. Forbes and Dr. Flood ; Influences of Pine
Forests, of the Sugar House, of Ague Districts, Ac.
4. Bv Medicated Inhalation ; its Success f the Action of In
haled Vapors on the Diseased Surface of the Lungs ; the Inhal
ing Instrument; the Remedies Employed; Directions for
Treatment; Cases.
The author of this work stands deservedly high as a physi
c'.an ; and such has been the practical success of his treatment
in Consumption, Bronchitis and Asthma, that it cannot fail to
place him at the head of living authority on Diseases of the
Lungs. STRINGER A TOWNSEND, Publishers.

The great Kentucky remedy.
—DR. JOHN BULL’S
SARSAPARILLA.
This medicine, when used according to directions, will cure,
without fail—
Scrofula,
or King’s Evil,
Cancers, Eruptions
of the Skin, Erysipelas,
Tumors, Chronic Sore Eyes,
Ringworm or Tetters, Scald Head,
Rheumatism, Pains in the Bones or
Joints, Old Sores and Ulcers, Swelling of
the Glands, Syphilis, Dyspepsia, Salt Rheum,
Diseases of the Kidneys, Diseases arising from the
use of Mercury, Loss of Appetite, Pain in the Side and
Shoulders, General Debility, Lumbago, Coughs, Colds,
Dropsy, Jaundice, Costiveness, Bronchitis. Weakness of the
Chest, Sore Throat, Pulmonary Affections, and all other
Diseases tending to produce Consumption, Liver Com
plaints, Female Irregularities and Complaints, Low
Spirits. Sick and Nervous Headache, Night
Sweats, Exposures, or Imprudence in Life,
Chronic Constitutional Diseases, and as a
Spring and Summer Drink and General
Tonic for the System, and a gentle
and pleasant purgative, ft is
superior to Blue Lick
and Congress Water,
Salts, or Seidlitz
Powders.
It is a remarkable fact, that among the hundreds of eminent
physicians who have examined the recipe by which Bull’s Sarsa
parilla is prepared, not one has condemned it, but all approved
it, and commend it in the highest terms. Many physicians ex
press themselves strongly in the belief that it is decidedly the
preparation of Sarsaparilla that has ever been placed be
fore the public. Although there are many'physicians who feel
a reluctance to having their /- ”
dation of nnv tney may
r o- -, - ■ degree, there are others who frankly
yield their support in favor of a remedy which they know is
copobic of doing so much good in an afflicted community. As
an evidence, read the following from old and respectable phy
sicians, of high standing in the community in which they live :
TESTIMONY.
Testimony like the following renders superfluous all com
ments on the efficacy of Bull’s Sarsaparilla.. From Dr. L. P.
Yandell, Professor of Chemistry in the Louisville Medical Col
lege :
I have looked over the list of ingredients composing John Bull’s
Compound Extract of Sarsaparilla, and have no hesitation in say
ing that they form a safe compound, and one that promises well
iu chronic diseases, to which it is applicable.
Louisville, June 6, 1848. ‘ L. P. YANDELL, M. D.
What Dr. Pyles, physician by appointment to the Louisville
Marine Hospital, says of Bull s Sarsaparilla :
Louisville, March 20, 1848.
I have examined the prescription for the preparation of John
Bull’s Sarsaparilla, and I believe the combination to be an excel
lent one, and well calculated to produce an alterative Impression
on the system. I have used it both in public and private prac
tice, and think it the best article of Sarsaparilla now in use.
M. PYLES, M. D.,
Resident Physician Louisville Marine Hospital.
Loudon, Ky., April 25th, 1850.
Sir:—Permit me to address to you a lew lines, and do me the
honor to reply to a request that I will make iu the conclusion of
this letter, etc.
I am a graduate of Transylvania Medical University ; I have
practiced medicine in this wilderness country about live years,
But owing to exposure to bitter cold weather, I have been indis
posed with Acute Rheumatism about six months. After having
exhausted my skill in the treatment cf my case, and deriving no
benefit, I was induced to give your fluid extract of sarsapa
rilla u fair trial, and accordingly purchased a bottle of your
medicine from your agent, Mr. George P. Brown, about two weeks
ago, and I must confess that one bottle has entirely cured me.
It is my opinion, that your preparation of Sarsaparilla is deci
dedly superior to any other preparation now in use, and I will
tales great pleasure in recommending it to the afflicted as being a
remedial agent, and I will advise the physicians to use it in their
practice, etc. Respectfully yours, B. B. ALLEN, M. D.
Louisville, July 13th, 1819.
I have examined the list of articles that compose John Bull’s
Extract of Sarsaparilla, and I have no hesitation in saying that it
is a safe and valuable compound. I would prefer it to any article
now in use, for the diseases arising from an impure state of the
blood or taint of the system. I confidently recommend it to my
fliends as being a powerful Extract, and one that I believe will
cure all classes of diseases for which it is recommended, if used
according to directions. I believe it to be a valuable succedane
um to mercury.—Nay, 1 have my doubts whether in the most
violent and protracted cases of Syphilis, accoompanled with
Nodes Trophe, in caries of the bones, whether it ought not to
succeed every other remedy. S. K. McCONACHIE, M. D.,
Honorary member of the Medical Society, Philadelphia.
Hear what Dr. Stapp, a physician who stands at the top of his
profession, says of John Bull’s Sarsaparilla :
I have been using John Bull’s Sarsaparilla, in a great variety
of chronic diseases, with the most happy effects, and I have no
hesitation in reconimeuding it to the public for the cure of scrof
ula, syphilis, and all cutaneous and glandular diseases.
. Yours, most fervently, WM. STAPP, M. D.
Lewisport, Ky., April 6, 1849.
REV. E. W. SEHON—REV. E. STEVENSON.
Conclusive.—Rev. E. W. Schon is widely and generally
known as an eloquent and accomplished pastor of the M. E.
Church, and Rev. E. Stevenson has been known as one of the
most talented and zealous members that the Kentucky Confer
ence could boast of for many years, and at this time is filling the
high and responsible station of agent of the M. E. Book Concern:
Louisville, May 20th, 1849.
We have used John Bull’s Sarsaparilla, and have known it to
be used with entire satisfaction ; and we have no hesitation in
stating our belief, that it is a safe and valuable medical com
pound, and calculated to produce much good and relieve much
suffering; and tlieiefore would cheerfully and most earnestly re
commend it to the affleted. (Signed) E. W. SEHON,
E. STEVENSON.
We earnestly invite all persons who are suffering with any of
“ the ills that flesh is heir to,” to call on Dr< John Bull’s agent,
and get a copy of Bull's Family Journal gratis; and for the
sake of humanity, we hope that a single individual will not be
found unwilling to give Bull’s Sarsaparilla a trial, after read
ing, and recollecting, at the same time, that it is impossible
for the Doctor to publish the tenth part of the number of certift
ca’es of astounding cures performed by his Sarsaparilla. The
amount of testimony voluntarily showered on Dr. Bull’s Sarsa
parilla, from well known and distinguished individuals, both in
public and private life, has been perfectly overwhelming.

HAT EVERY WOMAN SHOULD
KNOW.—Every woman should know that if she is in
poor, sickly, debilitated condition of health, making existence
a burden to herself and a source of painful anxiety to her
lelativesand friends, and, perhaps, (horrible reflection!) en
tailing and inflicting her own maladies and sufferings upon
her children, that it is her duty to understand why and from
what cause her sufferings arise, that remedy and relief may.
v-bile yet there is time, be availed of, thecauses be avoided in
future, and her heallh restored, that she may be fitted for the
duties and capable of the enjoyments of life.
Let every woman look at the emaciated form, the deathlike
complexion, the deep-buried, lustreloss eye, the sunken cheek,
the glccmy and depressed spirits, the shattered nerves, the
prostrate and helpless condition of many a wife, mother,
daughter or sister, if not herself included, within her own
circle, whose days are days of agony, and ask herself, “Must
this continue ? Must this be ? Is there no remedy ? No re*
lief? No hope?”
The remedy is by knowing the causes and avoiding them
and knowing the remedies and benefitting by them.
These are pointed out iw
THE MARRIED WOMAN’S
PRIVATE MEDICAL COMPANION,
BY DR. A. M 4 MAURICEAU,
PROFESSOR OF DISEASES OF WOMEN.
One hundredth Edition (500,000). 18mo., pp. 250.
[ON FINE PAPER, EXTRA BINDING, $1,00.]
Every complaint to which.a woman is subject, from girl
hood to womanhood, as a Iso as wife and as mother, aro fully
described, with the causes, the symptoms, and also proper
mode of treatment in a plain, simple, but Jn the most chaste
language, easily understood. And thus every woman can
discover, by comparing her own symptoms with those descri
bed, the nature, character, and causes of her complaint; and
be spared much anxiety and suffering.
The wife about becoming a mother has often need of in
struction and advice of the utmost importance to her future
health, in respect to which her sensitiveness forbids consulting
a medical gentleman, will find such instruction and advice,
and also explain many symptoms which otherwise would occa
sion anxiety or alarm.
How many arc suffering from obstructions or irregularities
peculiar to the female system, which undermine the health,
the effects of which they are ignorant, and for which their del
icacy forbids seeking medical advice? How many suffer from
prolapsus uteri (falling cf the womb), or from fiuor albus
(weakness, debility, &c.)'t How many are in constant agony
for many months preceding confinement? How many have
difficult if not dangerous deliveries, and slow and uncertain
recoveries? Some- whose lives are hazarded during such
time, will each find in its pages the means of prevention, |
amelioration ar d relief.
How many bliter moments, how much anguish, might have ;
been spared to the sufferer, to her husband, to her relatives,
by a timely possession of this little volume.
It is impracticable to convey fully the various subjects treat
ed of, as they are of a nature strictly Intended for the mar.
ried, or those contemplating marriage.
But no husband, v ife or mother arc excusable if they still
continue in ignorance of those physiological laws, by the
knowledge of which their own health and happiness, as also
the future well-being of their children, are secured.
