for the ~apid cure of Cancer. Ulcerated Sore Throat,
Whit# Swelling, Bronchitis, Dropsy, Dyspepsia,
\nd ai 1 Diseases arising from an Impure state of
v.he B> ood.
Prepared by J. L. KID WELL, Druggist, George
town, D. C.
History of the Beech Drop, or Oincer Root
Thb Bijsoh Drop, o* Cancer Boot, Is figured and
described by the celebrated Dr. Barton, in his Medi
cal Botany.
A knowledge of Its extraordinary medicrl virtues
was first learned from the North American Indians,
by[whom it was used for the treatment and cure of
Cencer, Rheumatism, Scrofula, and Consumption.
The Fluid Extract of Orobanche is composed en
tirely of the products of the vegetable kingdom, so
combined as to possess in the greatest perfection the
virtues and powers of an alterative and purifier of
the blood. It is, therefore, applicable as a never
failing remedy in Scrofula, whether suppurative or
glandular, Chronic Rheumatism, Cancerous diseases
in ony form, especially cancerous diseases of the
Uterus. In all complicated cases of Scrofula and
Syphilis, and in cases where the syphilitic virus of
the parent causes a development of syphilis or Scro
fula In the child, this is the only remedy upon which
a hope of recovery Can be reasonably founded.
It Is useful in all scaly skin diseases. Ulcerated
Sow Throat, White Swelling, diseases of the bone,
end all cases of an ulcerous character. It is also
particularly useful in Chronic and Nervous Com
plaints, occurring In debilitated and cachetic consti
tution; in Bronchitis, Dyspepsia, Chronic Enlarge
nient >f the Liver and Spleeu, Dropsy, diseases of the
Kidneys and Blander, and all diseases arising from
an im jure state of the blood.
The estimate that is accorded this preparation by
the m jdical profession, and indeed by all competent
to judfe of its merits, may be seen in the fact, that
it is c instantly prescribed by many of our most emi
nent physicians, anl that it has been presented to
their students as worthy of their especial attention.
The fcllowing certificate is given from the very
best authority?John R. Jones, late Assistant Clerk
'? the House of Representatives. His recovery Is
considered extraordinary. Most of the members of
bcth Houses of Congress visited him at the St.
Cliarlea Hotel, and expressed their astonishment at
the wonders e free ted by the Compound Fluid Extract
of Beech Drop:
Washington, D. C., April 29, 1863.
For the benefit of the pubclc, and with none other
than a desire to do good, I cheerfully state, that 1
was afflicted with a cough and bronchial affection,
from July, 1 S5'2, to March, 1863, and during that
time was almost constantly confined to my room,
laboring unaer great debility and severe cough. 1
had medical "kill of the highest order, through
whose treatment, and under the guidance of a
higher than mortal power, my life was prolonged
till March, 1853, when I commenced the u*e of Dr.
Kidwell's Beech Drop, or Extract of Cancer hoot.
Since that period 1 have taken about six bottles ot
the medicine, and it gives me pleasure to state that
It haa effected an entire cure, with the exception of
weakness, occasioned by long confinement to my
room. I would advise all persons similarly afflicted
to try It. I consider It an invaluable medicine.
The humbugi* usually palmed upon the public in
the shspe of certificates lavoreble to the virtues of
medicines, almost deter me from giving mine; but
a sense of justice and humanity alone prompt me to
make the above statement.
Late Ass't Clerk Ho.of Raps., Washington.

Georgetown, Jan. 31,1863.
Dxar 8m: It is with a sense of gratitude, and a
desire that others suffering from disease may be in
duced to use the Extract of Brzch Drop, that I con
sent to give the following statement for publicity.
Until the last month I wh.< a sufferer from Chronic
Rheumatism, from the effects of which my health
war so completely undermined and broken up, that
I lost 20 or GO pounds of my usual weight. Anxious
to find some relief^ 1 resorted to the most approved
patent medicines. I used a number of bottles ot
Town?nd'? SnrpunaHUa, ftfld exhausted the list of
liniments, without any effect. My joints now be
came enlarged, and the pains in ray limbs bo excru
ciating. that they had to be rubbed two or three
times a night. The musclus of my legs were so con
tracted that I presented the appearance of a ma* of
sixty-five when 1 walked. In this condition, more
through curiosity than a belief in its good effects, I
commenced tte use of your B*Mh Drrp, and in ten
or twelve days the swelling about my joints had sub
sided; and now, after the use of three bottles, I am
able to resume tay business, and can walk with the
game ease and comfort that I formerly did.
Yours truly, Ac., Isaac Barrett,

Mb. Kidweli?8ir: A female member of my family,
aged 14 years, had been affected with a painful Scro
fulous affection of the ear for 4 year:;, and although
the best medical advice whs had here and in Balti
more, still the disease increased and the pain often
became almost intolerable. Fortunately for us, your
licech Drop was recommended to be uscxl, and I have
great pleasure in stating that it has been eminently
successful. The Mucous Secretions lias not made its
appearance for some months; the health of the pa
tient has been quite restored; all the parts that
were heretofore so much diseased have become sound
and well, and 1 am much gratified in being able to
rtate to yon, that I regard it as. having been ac
complished entirely by the use of your BeaJi Drop.
I am very respectful ly, your obedient servant,

undermined her health, that life was entirely de
spared of. Hearing of the efficacious effects of your

using one bottle so evident wim her improvement
that we persevered With It. When she had used 4
bottles, net health was perfectly restored. Our

C. F. Tobin, Esq.?Dear Sir: \our
name has been proposed as a suitable one
to occupy a place in our "Portraits and

living, of which several volumes hive
been already published. This great work
has been received with much favor every
where, and contains many of the first
names in the country. For further infor
mation of its general scope and plan. I
beg to refer you to a circular herewith
sent. Our portraits are engraved on steel,
by the first artists, so that the likenesses
are true and life-like representations of
their originals, possessing greater value
to the projects and their friends than the
most costly painting.
You are respectfally solicited to occupy
a place in the pages of this work. Should
your consent afford us the opportunity of
thus giving to the world a true and per
manent record of your like and features,
please send me your likeness (a good da
guerreotype of the same size as our por
traits is best,) so that it may be handed
over to our engravers.
Please cause to be sent to me also, a
memoir of yourself, or such facts as will
enable me to prepare it; and, 1 will not
forget to say, that the facts for the sketch
should be fully and accurately given.
1 hope you will send both the daguer

to hear from you, I am yours truly,

Dear Sir:?The above communication
reached me last week, and in replication.;
I beg leave te state, that if I have ever
done any thing worthy of the immor
tality your magazine is likely to confei
on me, I am not conscious of it. How
ever, as true merit is always modest, it
may be to that virtue that I owe my ig
norance, at all events, (and I am anx
ious the world at large should know it,)
I have not sought fame, but fame ha
sought me, as Alexander Smith the poet,
would say:
" Fame! Fame next grandest word to God !r'
In taking the retrospect of my carl}
days, I can discover nothing worthy of
record, unless it be the stealing of a few
water-melons at school, for which I wat
beaten with many stripes, or the riding
of a few quarter" races, for which I re
ceived an occasional and solitary ginger
cake ; or adventures of similar import.
At 17, I ran away from my venerable
old Guardian, the Rev. Hansford Dade
Duncan, (long life to him,) and vamosed
to the great far West, where I flourished
for a short time, and a short time only,
and upon returning, I lost all my money
upon a game vulgarly called " poker,
(of which, of course, you knownothir?,)
upon one of the boats of the Alabama
river. This was about the time the Ben
Franklin bursted, and killed so many:
and, had I not been standing near the
Stern of the vessel, you would never have
had the opportunity of handing my
name, fac simile, character, and adven

fundless, and perhaps somewhat seedy

of one vote, by my worthy competitor.
In the year of our Lord l<S4y, my il
lustrious friend Thomas D. Condy, gave
me the office of assistant deputy U. S.
marshal for the district of Barnwell, and
while taking the census, I killed one horse
and another ran away and broke my bug
gy; upon which occasion, I rode my horse
bare-back fourteen miles in forty minutes.

After I had concluded this herculean
undertaking, a man calling himself " C.
Frank Powell." wrote me from Washing
ton that if I would remit a certain amount
of money to him, he would prosecute my
claims for an increase of pay sufficient to
cover these immense disasters, But I
grieve to say that from the time 1 sent
the money, I have not heard a word from
the aforesaid and never-to-be-forgotten C.
Frank Powell, he probably having gone

tertain strong hopes of seeing his distin

important township, and was beaten so
badly by a base combination, of which 1

equanimity. As a salvo, however, to

distinguished but benighted friend, the

no language in the world fraught with as
many difficulties. In the first place, the
Russian alphabet possesses nine more
letters than the English, and is made up
of Greek, Roman, and Sclavonic charac
ters. In 166G the first Russian book was
printed at Amsterdam, and it was about
the 1704 or 1705 that Peter the Great,
himself made many alterations in the old
Sclavonic letters, for the purpose of as
similating them more nearly to the I>atm
ones; and the first Russian journal wis
printed with this type at St. Petersburg
in 1705, four vears after the foundation
of that city, from a font which had been
cast for him by artists brought from Hol
In the old Sclavonic alphabet there are
forty-six letters, but the modern Russian
lauguage comprises only thirty. In all
matters, however, of theological nature,
the antique form is even now retained,
and this constitutes the difference be

in a great measure must explain the diffi

contend with, in attempting to render
himself master of the Russian language:
but if it were possible for h<m to do m
perfectly, he would discover an extraor
dianary conspicuousncss, a delicacy and
beauty of expression, that would indeed,

In common with all dialects of Scla

also embraces not only the sounds of
every known language but every guttural
lisp and slur of which the human voice
is capable. But the language is also
divided into three leading dialects. The
first is the Russian proper, or the language
spoken in two capitals, Moscow and Su
Petersburg, and throughout the northern
and central portion of the empire. It is
the literary language of the Russians.
Secondly, in the southern and southeastern
provinces the Malo-Russian is spoken,
which dialect is supposed to approach
nearer to the old Sclavonic than any of
the others: the idiorn of Red Russia, in
the northern and eastern districts of Hun
gary, and to tlte eastward of (jalhcia. in
habited by the Russiacks, is almost iden
tical with the Malo-Russians. Thirdly,
in Lithuania and Volhynia, and other
portions of White Russia, the people speak
the White Russia dialect. The geogra
phical position of these districts should
fully account for the Polish words and
idioms which are here to be found. This
is the youngest of the Russian ?lialects?

"The livery question is again revived.
Several members of the American Lega
tion were present yesterday at the draw
ing room held by the Queen. In the be
lief that the great American complication
was already settled in England, they ap
peared in "citizen's dress" and, indeed,
looked like the only gentlemen among
unsightly Englishmen in the awkward
Court costume. But suddenly the Master
of Ceremonies approached one of thein in
great consternation, and remarked that
the Queen had already gone as far as pos
sible, by not objecting to a plain black
attire, hut American Republican was
presuming rather too far?pointing to
the elegant pantaloons of tue gentlemen;
black small clothes would do?but panta

solemnly against this brcach of etiquette
?which it seems cannot bear pantaloons.
The American gentlemen most gallantly

The English claim to have a
missile which su^j) asses everything
hitherto invented or conceived. It con
sists of nothing but a long rocket, on the
Congreve style, which darts forward in a
straight line, skimming the surface of
the water until it reaches the sides of the
vessels at which it is aimed, when it
penetrates the timbers with its sharp iron
head, containing a few pounds of fulmi
nate of mercury. When the fire has
reached this receptacle, it explodes,
making an opening in the side as large
as a stable door, which it is im}iossible
to plug.
Even admitting, then, that the Russia

you further. Yon are perfect : and I will
dismiss you with a few words of advice,
which you will do well to follow. You

can kiss the mistress. Carrr out this

anybody else's is handy. Keep your
conscience tor your ?o*n private use, and
don't trouble it with men's matters.?
Plaster the judge, and butter the jury.

oracular as a town clock. But above
all, get money?honestly if you can, my
