claim to public confidence, in reference to the
claims'of this medicine and the pamphlet accom

With a Healing Balm we come to greet
THE action of this Liniment upon the human
organization is truly wonderful Its volatile,
penetrating, soothing and healing properties diffuse
themselves to the very bones. It enters into the
circulation of the blood, gives a new impulse to
the whole nervous system, stimulates the absor
tents and secretions, and thus assists nature to
throw or! and rid herself of any diseased action of
the nervous chords or ligaments, making it equally
applicable to sores of any kind, rheumatism, or
abundant reasons of its great efficacy in so many
different diseases While it is perfectly harmless
to healthy flesh, skin or bone, it acts upon scientific
principles and FIXED LAWS OF THE CREA
TION . The large number of eases in which this
Liniment has proved its great value in the short
time it has been in Virginia, is sufficient to give the
greatest confidence, that its virtues are incompara-
Dle in the cure of Rheumatism, bruises, Sprains.

Savannah, Feb'y sts, 1852.
Having been afflicted with acute Rheumatism for
some time, and tried several of the most popular
medicines of the day, also under medical advice,
and received no relief until I tried the MUSTANG
LINIMENT, and much to my surprise, I received
immediate belief : and I am confident, that ty a

are afflicted, to try the Mexican Mustang Liniment

I take pleasure in siviig my testimony in favor
of the MUsTANG LINIMENT. I have used it in a
great many cases with satisfaction. I would par
ticularly recommend it to the notice of MASTERS
OF VESSELS, of all kinds, as surpassing all

An Editorial Article
From the Savannah Republican ot December 20th,
1851, written by A.K.Moore, Esq, recommends
the Mustsng Liniment in the following manner:
This medicine is now offered to the people of
Georgia for the first time. Our personal experience
enables us to recommend this Liniment to tht
public with confidence, as we have felt the good
effects upon a sprained aide, which receive.! great
benefit irom one application, and has been almost
cured by the occasional use lor a week.

Their power oyer the above diseases is not ex
celled it equalled—by any other preparation in thp
United States, as the cures attest, in many cases af
ter skilful physicians had tailed.
Tnese Bitters are worthy the attention of inva
lids. Possessing great virtues in the reciification of
diseases of the Liver and lesser glands, exercising
the most searching powers in weakness and affec
tions of the digestive organs, they are, withal, sate
certain and pleasant.
Charles Robinson, Esq., Easton, Md., in a letter
to Dr. Jackson, January 9, 1850, said—
'•My wife and myselt have received more benefit
from your medicine than any other we have ever
taken for the Dyspepsia andjLiver disease."

"A Great Medicine."
" We have uniformly refrained from recommend
ing to the public any of the various Patent Medi
cines of the day, unless thoroughly convinced of
their value. Among those we consider worthy of
notice is the German Bitters, invented by Dr. Hoof
land, and prepared by Dr. Jackson, in Phl.adelphia
One instance in particular, in which the superior
virtues of this medicine has been tested, has fallen
under our observation During the last summer, a
son ol Mr. Abraham Crabill, of this county, was
ve-y seriously afSieted with Liver Complaint, and
alter trying in vain various remedies, he purchased
a bottle o! the Bitters, and after using it, was so
much relieved of his distressing malady, that he
procured another bottle, and is restored entirely to
The "Philadelphia Saturday Gazet'.e," the beat

The editor says ot
"It is seldom that we recommend what are
termed P»tent Mediair.es to the confidence and pa

commend Dr. Hoonland's German Bitters, we wish
It to be distinctly understood that we are not speak

Great excitement had been created in the
capital by the pardon granted by the Congress
to the three assassins of Dr. Beistegu. The
Congress was assailed on all hands for this
act of weakness; the journals unanimously
speak of it as a direct attack on society, and
the respectable citizens of Mexico had nearly
all purchased arms to defend their persons
against the hordes of bandits whom this par
don has almost legally authorized to commit

Ihe Senate will allow this reduction of 10

The Randolph Negroes.—A writer to the
Bait.more Patriot, who is traveling in Ohio
gives this account of the Randolph Negroes'
who, it will be remembered, were driven from'
their homes which had been procured for them
by the whites:
"Troy, about twenty miles from Dayton, is a
small and ruther dilapidated town between
this place and l'iqur. Along the canal are a
majority ot the Randolph negroes. L was in
the adjoining county of Mercer, that the large
tract of laud was purchased forthe settlement
from which they were forcibly ejected by the'
white inhabitants. The condition of these
poor creatures is a bad commentary on the
miserable policy ofemancipating negroes, and
allowing them to remain in this country. The
majority of these once valuable servants, are
now worthless beast 3 upon the community
among whom they are located, and olten want
for the common necessaries of life. I heard
several express an ardent wish to return to
the shores of Roanoke again, w here thev had
plenty, and did not know what it was to'suffer
foi want."
An animal of a different species from any
before seen in California has been taken bv a
Mr. Hill, ol Nevada. It is culled the Cal'for
niacat. It is described as being verv beauti
ful, and bearing a resemblance to the marten,
differing from it, however, in color, being a
dark grey, encircled with bright brown ring?,
similar to the raccoon. The fur is very soft
and beautiful. Its bodv is about the size of the
grey squirrel but about fifteen inches long, and
its tail sixteen o.r seventeen inches long.
California continues to sustain her charac
ter us the land of wonders. An astonishing
product of her prolific soil was exhibited in
our office a few days since, says the Picayune,
in the shape of an enormous cauliflower; it
« eighed eighteen pounds, and was three feet
four iuches in circumference. What Was pe
culiarly remarkable, aside from its extraordi
nary dimensions, was the fact thut it was the
growth of but six weeks froui the time the seed
was deposited in the soil. It was raised at the
Mission Dolores, three miles from the city.
Thalberg's party, on his visit to this coun
try, in the Autumn, will be Buzzini, the great

so much the rage in London. Sautag is cer
tainly coming to try her fortune among u.«,
and Alboni comes out, under engagements to
Beale &c Co. These, with Ole Bull, making
his rounds, will keep the lovers of music pret

Madame Bosio, the popular cantatrice, dur
ing the last passage of the steamship Africa
from New York to Liverpool, gave a conceit at
the earnest request of her fellow passengers,
who subscribed a purse of §75, which she re
quested Capt. Harrison to piesent as a dona
tion to the Sailor's Home.
There have recently beeu dug up in Tren
ton, N. J., two 20-pouud, one 12-pound, two 6-
pound cannon bails, one chain ball and one
horse pistol. The balls were all in a good
state of preservation, being cast iron, while
the pistol of wrought iron was nearly eaten up
bv rust. No d«jubt three are revolutionary
relics of the battle of Assanpink bridge, where
the British three times endeavored to force
\\ ashingtcn, bui were repulsed. Night came
on when \\ ushiugton left his camp fires at
Assanpink, but took his men and bullets 10 do
the next glorious work of Princeton.
Painful Occurrekce.—At Sumterville,
S. C., about ten days since, the following pain-
Itil event occurred:—A gentleman was busily
engaged in planting out the common yellow
jasmin vine in his vnrd, and, alter trimming
away a few of the roots, threw thein aside,
where they were picked up by two of his lit
tle children, aged about three and five years.—
The children no doubt chewed and sw'allo* ed
portions of the root. Alter a ghort time, the
youngest returned to its mother, and, laying
down near where she was sitting, fell into a
slumber,asshe suppused. After a while she
called to awake her child, but ineffectually.—
She stooped tlown to raise it up, but it was
dead. The elder child was then taken ill, and
iu the course of a few bouts, was also iu the

Shocking Railroad Accident and Loss
of Life.—The Cleveland Plain Dealer states
that on Tuesday last, a freight train on the
Michigan Central railroad came in collision
with a passenger train at Niles, Michigan, by
which four cars were demolished,seven passen
gers killed, and ninety wounded, thirty of
whjm will die. The scene is described as
heart rending. Arms, legs and ribs were bro

in every possible manner. The engineer and
firemen, who were saved bv jumping from the
train, have been arrested and imprisoned in

Most Astounding Freak of Nature
On Friday, the 7th inst., a post mortem exami
nation wag held by Dr. Parkhurst on the body
of the widow of Amos Eddy, in the town of
Frankfork, Herkimer county, N. Y., aged 77
years, and to the utter astonishment of all pres
ent a lull grown child was found, which sh#
had carried tor forty-six years. It was cased
in a sort of bony or cartilaginous structure, ex
cept one leg and foot and one elbow which
were almost entirely ossified.
We are told that an Englishman, who had
stopped a few .lays in Louisville, on leaving
for Cincinnati, was addressed by an acquaint
ance with the very common Kentucky remark
at parting, "Take care of yourself." The stran
ger in all simplicity replied,'"My Goa! they
won't take anything but my money, will they?''.

The Germans have produced some very
excellent remedies tor various disease*. Among
wnich may be specified "Dr. iloofland'a celebrated
Bitters," for sale by C M Jackson—and used wiih
remarkable success in Liver Complaints, Jaundice,
Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, and a general de
rangement of the stomach. The Sunday Dispatch
says of this medicine :
"We feel convinced, that in the use of the Ger
man Bitters the patient does not become debilitated,
but constantly gains strength and vigor to the frame
—a tact worthy of consideration. The Bitters are
pleasant in taste and smell, and can be administer
ed under any ciicumstances, to the most delicate
stomach. Indeed they can be used by all persona
with the most peifect safety. It would be well for
tfcose who are much affected in the nervous sys
tem, to commence with one teaspoon tul or leas,
and gradually increase. We speak from experi
ence, and are, of course, a proper judge. The
press, larand wide, have united in recommending
