O THE PUBLIC THE SUBSCRIBER IS
pleased to inform the public that his CHOLERA
AND DIAKRHUSA MEDICINE affords more prompt re
lief in the various aft'eciions of the Bowels, and consequent
ly more satisfaction to all who have used it, than any other
ilediciue ever offered to I he public. The following are
among mauv testimonials of its efficacy:
Dr. 11. 11. Y 'okthixotox Dear Sir: 1 take much pleasure
in adding my testimony to others in favor of your remedy
for Bowel Affections, Arc, having so frequently experienced
its beneficial results in my own case, as well as in many
others to whom I have given it. I carried a bottle of it
with me to Baltimore, (and here permit me to sav, I wot id
as soon think of traveling without money as without th s
remedy,) and finding many among my acquaintances ihere
who were suffering with various tin-ins of Bowel Affections,
I gave it freely, and in xo ixstaxci: did it fail to afford the
most prompt axd dkcided uemkf, as it lias done here. I
congratulate you, and especially" the public, on the discov
ery of a medicine which is belter calculated to protect man
kind and alleviate suffering, than any other ever brought
before the people. L. T. SPIERS.
This is to certify that, some weeks back, I was taken
with a violent D-iirrhtea, which persisted for eight days.
Being some sixt y miles from home, I made use of all i lie
remedies 1 could think of, but without aff..rd:ng any relief.
On arriving at home, 1 was informed lhat Dr. R. H. Wor
Ihingion had prepared a remedy f.,r Cholera, Ac, and was
advised to use it. I did s., aud lo my astonishment, one
single di.se gave speedy and pei'inaucm relief, since which
time 1 have used it frequently in n.y family ; and in justice
to the Doctor say, I consider it iiim-h t.c intuit raittuhit MtJ
ieine I have used iu an experience of twenty years.
Murfreesboro, X. C, Oct. -2, '34.
Dr. WoRTmxc.Tox Dear Sir: I take great pleasure in
recommending your Cholera Medicine to the public, and
more especially since I have had personal experience and
observawoii of its lieneiicial effects.
i have tried severtl remedies put up for Cholera, Ac, but
have never found such happy results from any as fi-oiu
your invaluable remedy. 1 have such unbounded confi
dence in its efficacy, that I am uuwitliiig and will not leave
home without a supply with me ; and I regard it as one of
the most valuable discoveries of the age. Yours, trulv,
V. 1'. BEAMAX.
Windsor, X". C. Sept. 11, ',54.
Dr. R. H. Worthingtox Dear Sir : I have made some
effort, and have succeeded in iniroduc.'iig v-:iir 31edic.'ne to
the public, aud 1 liud it is taking very well indeed; and the
result is, that I have nearly sold what you sent nie. I
therefore wish you would send n:e some more as Soon as
you can. I have not the slightest doubt but that
this Medicine is the very best remedy out for the disease
for which it is recommended. 1 hope you will soou send
me a supply, as 1 would not Iikc to get entirely out of it.
GEORGE W. McGLAUGHOX.
From the 3Iurfreesboro' Gazette.
3Issrs. Editors : In looking over the iast number of the
Gazette, I found a communication from our friend, Mr. L.
T. Spiers, recommending Dr. R. II. Wortln'iigton's Cholera
Mixture to the public, for the cure of Diarrhiea, Dysentery,
and other kindred diseases. Having experienced lii my own
case, the happy effects of its use, as well as other members
of my family, 1 can safely say that I regard it as superior to
any remedy' we have ever used, in an experience of twenty
years. I would, therefore, recommend it to every family,
as aii invaluable remedy, and every individual to procure a
bottle and keep it bv them in these times of cholera.
li. li. PARKER.
Murfreesboro', Aug- 30, o4.
This is to certify that I have used Dr. R. II. Wortliing
ton's Cholera 31ediciuc in my family for the last four or
live weeks, in several cases of Bowel Complaint, so common
in our viciuity, with invariable success. One of the cases
was that of a negro child, some four or live months old,
who was so emaciated by the effects of the disease, that its
life was nearly despaired of, when my wife happened to
think that she would try the Cholera 3Iedicine, and did
so with complete success, iu less than forty-eight hours.
I am thoroughly of opinion that no family should be with
out so fine a medicine.
Given under my hand, this 3d day of October, '54.
A. W. DARDEX.
3ICRFBEESBORo X. C.
Dr. R. H. Worthixotox : It affords us pleasure to say,
that Ve have used your Cholera Diarrhcea 3Iedicine for the
last twelve months, and have found it invariably successful,
in relieving speedily the cases in which v.'e have had occa
sion to use it. We entertain a high appreciation of its va
lue, and have no hesitation in expressing the opinion, that
it will prove to be a valuable family medicine.

Sir. Silas Burns Dear Sir : Our Engine and Mills, made
at your shops, have been at work nearly two months, and
tully meet our expectations. The Excine, as to finish and
strength, performaxce and durability, is inferior to none
in the State of the same class made here or elsewhere. The
Mills run with a smoothness and speed truly astonishing,
in ordinary sawing we cut in a common sized log, 1 foot, in
ofi seconds or U leet per minute. We have run, however,
througu an IS feet log in 3-2 seconds or at the rate of 33 feet
per minute, by running to the top speed we fully believe we
can cut 40 feet per minute. The only objection we have
heard urged is, it takes too many hands to haul up logs and
carry away lumber. Yours, Ac,

A WEEKLY XEWSPAPEK, TO BE ENTITLED

THE OBJECT IN COMMENCING A PAPER IX
this place, is of two-fold character: 1st. To advocate
and advance the principles and doctrines op the GREAT
DEMOCRATIC PARTY, as given to us by Jeefehson,
aud afterwards adhered to by Madison, Monroe, Jacksox
and Polk, and now so faithfully carried out bv President
Pierce. We maintain that it is the doctrine of the "T-rne
American" party, which advocates "Free Trade and Sail
or's Rights. ' A" party which has for its object.thc strict ful
filment of the Constfiutiou which gave birth to the oppo
sition of the Elder Aiams, during his despotic Administra
tion of the Alien and Sedition Laws a party which does
not build up one section or interest, to the manifest injury
of another section a party which declares its principles in
the open day, and lays bare its designs to the investigation
of the American People. In carrying out these views, it
will be our aim to advocate Democratic Measures, Demo
cratic Usacres, and Democratic Men 1
"THE YfRUE AMERICAN"" will oppose all and every
secret poliiical association, be it of whatsoever name, or
let it spring from whatsoever party, but maintain the true
aoeti iiio, mat ttie people are capable ot self-government,
and that it does not require any adventitious aid, by secret
associations, to fulfil fins great design.
It will be our second object, to build up the Agricultu
ral, Commercial, Mechanical, and all other interests of
Xorth Carolina, and give a healthy tone to the moral con
dition if her people making war upon no particular avo
cation, but carrying out this desirable object bv precept
The columns of the "TRUE AMERICAN" will not be
opened to any personal or private controversy, but always
ready to give to political opponents, an opportunity "to
make known their views.
The Paper will be published Weekly, with Xew
Press and Type, at Two Dollars per annum, payable in
advance, or Two Dollars and Finr Cents at the expira
tion of twelve months, aud will be issued the First Week
in May, 1S.")5.

. i new and singularly successful remedy for th
l cure of all Bilious diseases Costiveness, Indi
gestion, Jaundice, Dropsy, Rheumatism, Fevers.
Gout, Humors, Nervousness, Irritability, Inflamma
tions, Headache, Pains in the Breast, Side. Back, .
snd Limbs, Female Complaints, &-c.,&c. Indeed,
very few are tbe diseases in which a Purgative Medi
cine is not more or less required, nnd much sick
ness and suffering might be prevented, if a harm
less but effectual Cathartic were more freely used.
No person can feel well while a costive habit of
body prevails ; besides it soon generates serious and
often fatal disease, which miglit have been avoided
by the timely and judicious use of a good purgative.
This is alike true of Colds, Feverish symptoms, and
Bilious derangements. They all tend to become or
produce the deep seated and formidable distempers
which load the hearses ail over the land. Hence a
reliable family physic is of the first importance to
the public health," and this Pill has been perfected
with consummate skill to meet that demand. An
extensive trial of its virtues by Physicians, Profes
sors, and Patients, has shown results surpassing
any thing hitherto known of any medicine. Cures
have been effected beyond belief, were they not sub
itactiated by persons of such exalted position and
character as to forbid the suspicion of untruth.
Among the many eminent gentlemen who have
testified "in favor of these Piils, we may mentian :
Dlt. A. A. Hayes, Analytical Chemist, of Boston,
and State Assayer of Massachusetts, whoso, high
professional character is endorsed by the .
Hon. Edwakb Everett, Senator of the TT. S.
Robekt CWinthrop. Ex-Speaker of the House
AnttoTT L.vwiience, Minister Plen. to England,
f John B. Fitzpatrick, Cat h. Bishop of Boston.
Also, Dr. J. R. Chilton, Practical Chemist, of
New York City, endorsed by
Hon. W. L. MaRcy, Secretary of State.
Wm. B. Astor, tbe richest man in America.
S. Leland & Co., Propr's of the Metropolitan
Hotel, and others.
Did space permit, we could give many hundred
certificates, from all parts where the Pills have
been used, but evidence even more convincing than
the experience of eminent public men is found
in their effects upon trial.
These Pills, the result of long Investigation and
study, are offered to the public as the best and
most complete which t!r- nrcpont state of medical
science can afford. They are compounded not of
the drugs themselves, biit of the medicinal virtue
only of Vegetable remedies, extracted by chemical
process in a state of purity, and combined together
in such a manner as to insure the best results. 1 his
system (.f composition for medicines has been found
in the Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce a
more efficient remedy than had hitherto been ob
tained by anv process. The reason is perfectly ob
vious. While by the old mode of composition, ev
ery medicine is burdened with more or less of acri
monious and injurious qualities, by this each indi
vidual virtue only that is desired for the curative
etfect is present. All the inert and obnoxious qual
ities of each substance employed are left behind, I lis
curative virtues only being retained. Hence it ia
self-evident the effects should prove as they have
proved more parely remedial, aud the Pills a surer,
more powerful antidote to disease than any other
medicine known to the world.
As it is frequently expedient that my medicine
should be taken under the counsel of an attending
Physician, and as he could not properly judge of a
remedy without knowing its composition, I have
supplied the accurate Formula: by which both ni
Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body 01
Practitioners in the United States and British Amcr
icau Provinces. If however there should be aw
one who has not received them, they will km
promptly forwarded by mail to his address.
Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how
few would be taken if their composition was known .
Their life consists in their mystery. I have no
"The composition of my preparations is laid open,
to aU men, and all who are competent to judge on
the subject freely acknowledge their convictions
of their intrinsic merits. The Cherry Pectoral wan
pronounced by scientific men to be a wonderful,
medicine before its effects were known. Many em
inent Physicians have declared the same tiling of
my Pills, and even more confidently, and ore will
ing to certify that their anticipations were more
than realized by their effects upon trial.
They operate by their powerful influence on the
internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it
into healthy action remove the obstructions of
the stomach, bowels, liver, and other organs of the
oody, restoring their irregular action to health, and
by correcting, wherever they exist, such derange--ments
as are the first origin of disease. ;
Being sugar wrapped they are pleasant to take,
and being purely vegetable, no harm can arise from,
their use in any quantity.
