IN that long train of diseases which seem to grow with the growth of civilized society, Consumption takes the lead in its relentless inroads upon human life* yet this dreadful disorder is easil) overcome in its earlier stages. It ia only when neglected that it ar rive3 at the terrific maturity which so often battles the sagacity of professional science. An obstinate cough is the customary forerunner of the pulmonary con sumption. Improper neglect in the timely adminis tration of simple and salutary remedies, is sure to be -enroved by a dreadful succession of consumptive symptoms — oppression of the breasti greem.h anil bloody spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; shn veiled extretneties, and general emaciation of the whole body; prostration of strength; flushed cheeks; swollen feet and legs and at last in the full posses sionof the mental faculties, and while hope still wh:s pers her flattering tale—cold cxtiemities, and a pre mature death. For the various stages of this complaint, one ot the ___vet discovered is DR RELFE’S ASTHMATIC PILLS. This exceedingly powerful, and yet equally sate and innocent preparation, has effected thorough and rapid cures upon patients supposed to have beeu Ur advanc ed in a confirmed Consumption, and who have exhibit* appearances which usually indicate u fatal ter mination of’he disorder.

SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,) Prepared by C. HER S TUNS, near Frederick town, Maryland. Richmond. Va- July 15, 18>0 THE public will be pleased to understand that I was the original discoverer of Judkins* Ointment, and sole proprietor of the patent from September, 1817, until the expiration of the same; but, having connect ed myself with Dr. Judkins in the commencement, I permitted the Ointment to bear his name. The term of the patent having expired on the 26th June, 1 have made an improvement in the same, and taken out a pa tent thereon. # N. SHEPHERD. (TT Imposition having been practised upon the nub lie by a spurious article, bearing the name of “Jud kins* Ointment,” the proprietor avails himself of the authority granted to him in hi, letters patent, now to call the Ointment after hi. own name. Henceforth it will be known by the name of _ SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC OINT M ENT, (formerly Judkins .) When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and had in several inatancea. experienced its irood effects, I sent it to several physicians. witVirntruetions in wha hanVs^ome o?ewhom° would^rob'ably undertakTIo make it. and knowing the difficulty of the process-ne vertheless, it might be progated in this adulterated. si tnl ion as it might in some degree resemble the origi nal—and in this way its good effects would be oblitera ted; Under these considerations, I secured the origi nal and certain remedr for those obstinate disease!, some of which have so long baffied the skill of me dical science: . . 1st White swellings of every description; 2d Sore legs and ulcers of long standing, 3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularlytliose hardened tu tors in women’s breasts, which oftentimes terminate in ulceiated cancers; 4th Felons; or what some people know by the name of catarrhs, of every description. 5th Rheumatic pains of the joints; 6th Sprains and bruises of every description,^ in whatever part situate; . 7th Tetters of all kinds, fn this complaint ihe pa tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part out of water; 8th Chilblains or parts affected bv frost, jt is also one of the best remedies for burns and scalds. It eases the pain and draws the fire out in a short time. . . , . . For inflamed women’s breasts and glandular swel lings, it is suoerior to any medicine yet known to the m-dical facility. It is much safer than mercurial ap plications, (as it does not contain the smallest atom of any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold. This Ointment has cured sores of many years stand ing. Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the exte»'a! sore, in consequence of the bones becoming carious oi rotten, it will stop the progress of the canes, increise the quantity of discharge, remove the offen sive smell, and ease the pains.

H. P. LEE. Baltimore, August, 1828. Doctor S. H. P. Lee, New London, Conn. Dear Sir—It is now upwards of twenty years that I have used your New London Bdious Pills in my fami ly, and always found them an efficient purgative in al most every description of disease, and believe they sa» ved many a long doctor’s bill by their early and timely use. I never found their accustomed certainty to vary in their operation and effects until a few months past; and having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve ry instance of using them, I began to conclude that you had made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this impression, 1 accidentally saw an advertisement of yours in a New York newspaper, designating spurious imitations from your own manufacture, by having your WRITTEN SIGNATURE to each bill of directions, ! and that in no instance were the imitations signed with pen and ink, although a perfect copy in every other ; respact. Finding those I had without this test, I be gan to suspect that 44 all was not fair in medicine, as well as i» politics, and called at several of our apothe caries for your pills, with your written sfgnature. I found many without this test, but none with it, until 1 came to the Messrs, Keerls*, who assured me they had them direct from you. I procured a box, and on using them, found the same effects from them 1 had always experienced, and am so muefi rejoiced on finding my i selfifl possession of a medicine I so highly prize, that that I cannot, injustice, refrain from giving you this information. , (tj* To avoid the imposition of counterfeits and spu rious imitations, as related above, the purchaser has only to examine the bill of directions covering each box, and if signed at foot, in my own handwriting, ira-1 m-diately under my printed name, they are genuine, and prepared by me; but if owlt the printed name is affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.

HYGEIANISM. | 11HE following testimonials of the superior efficacy of the HYGBIAN MEPICINBS in the cure of ; our diseases, speak in a language w'hich must carry j conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:— Brown Univehsity, Upc. 25, 18.3:3. i To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hjgeian Vege I table Universal Medicines, for the Slate of Rhode I Island. Sik—Gratitude to the Great Preserver of Men com ! pels me, in compliance with your request, to give a i brief statement of a cure, which, I think, I received j from the Hygeian Medicines. I give publicity to the 1 same the more cheerfully, because thereby, perhaps, I may be useful to some of niy fellow-men, who may be afflicted with a similar disease. My complaint was catled Pulmonary Consumption, and that my real condition may be explicitly under i stood, I state, in connexion with the relation of the cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep tember, 1832,! caught a severe cold, which settled on my lungs; I was confined to my room about one week, ! with a fever, attended with considerable cough; my | cough soon abated, and apparently, I was regaining my health; when, after about three weeks, in the course of the night, having returned the evening be ; fore in usual health. I found myself bleeding at the lungs. I had not, to my knowledge, received any hurt or strain, to which the cause of this might be attribut ed. I spat blood, occasionally, for four days; it left me with some fever, pain in the breast, very little ap- j petite, and withal, very weak A few weeks determined that I was in a decline I received the attention of the most skilful Physicians, who often seemed to check the progress of the dis ease, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovery. Put relapse upon relap>e, and each bringing me lower than the preceding, seemed to baffle all human skill, and warn me of an approaching dissolution. Thus, months after the first attack, a “ tubercle” [small ul cer] broke in the Inngs,'after which I spat blood, one clay. 1 continued to decline twomontns longer, wnen ; I obtained Hie Hygeian Medicines. I bad now been unable to sit up a whole dsy, for four months and a half. My feet were cold and lifeless, sleep unsound, cold night sweats constant, tongue furred, pulse in the j afternoon from seventy-five to one hundred per mi ; nute, food produced great distress, appetite very poor, pain in the breast directly opposite the heart, attended with some cough, &c. &c. Such was my condition, when i first became acquainted with the j Hygeian Medicines I commenced taking the medi | cines, four pills at a dose, and increased the dose dai ly, one up to the number of twelve. In about ten days, my appetite became good, and fold produced no distress, sleep soon became sound and refreshing, and in about forty days the symptoms of the disease had nearly all disappeared. I took the medicine sixty days regularly every night, averaging about ten pills at a dose; the greatest num ber taken at any one time was fifteen. Af^er this, I took about four doses a week, until I had taken about thirteen hundred pills, when I found myself restored to health. After I commenced the Hygeian, I took no oilier medicine. One year from the first attack, 1 • was able to resume my studi s in college, where I have since remained without any recurrence of the disease Hitherto 1 have been convalescent; and if ni) strength is not yet fully returned, I am certain I have less pains, and am more free from temporary sickness* than at any time since my earliest recollec tion. Yours, with respect, HORACE T. LOVE. Dn II. SiiEfHVABb Moat Dear Sir—I wish to state that my sister, after severe suffering, ami employing a medical man three years, was relieved oy the use of the Universal Medicines ! Her complaint was a violent pain and soreness in her i side; indeed, to use her own expression, her ribs on ! one side had turned in, actually deformed The pain was a violent burning pain, almost intolerable; so see veie, that nbe could not ait up for upwards of three years. It was occasioned by over-lacing hers o If, and perhaps, over exertion w ith it. After using a few, 1 doses of Nro. 1 and 2, alternately, about eight piUs for : a dose, the pain decreased, and* by perseverance in their use, she is now restored to health; and 1 hove no objection to this case being made public for the j benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours truly, II llVK.Ii Lowell, Massachusetts, Feb. 8, 1834 ' Injustice to Dr. M. her medical adviser, when he heard her improvement in heafth, he iecommended perseverence in the use of he medicines. This valuable Medicine, being composed only of vegetable matter, or medicinal herbs, and warranted, on oath, as containing not one particle of mercurial, mineral, or chemical substances, (all of which are un congenial to the nature of man, and therefore destiuc i live to the human frame,) is found to be perfectly i harmless to the most tender age or weakest frame, un* | der every stage of human suffering; the most pi *asant and benign in it operation, and at the same time the most searching out the root of every complaint, how ever deep, and of performing a cure, that was ever offered to the world. This wonderful effect, too, is produced by the least trouble to the patients, by merely swallowing a certain number of small pills, and being called a few extra times to the purposes of eva cuation, with the least possible sensation of pain, or exhaustion of bodily s'rength, and without the tear of catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way different from their accustomed habits. These pills cure all cases, and cannot betaken to excess Experience, which is the touchstone of all human knowledge, has long borne testimony to the fact; and extensive use of them has already verified its truth in this country. These medicines cure by purging; and yet the weak, the feeble, the infirm, the nervous, the delicate, are in a few days strengthened by their operation, because they clear the body of its bad humours, and invariably procure sotind sleep. They are the safest and most efficacious menicineto take to sea; preventing scurvy, costiveness, &c, The Vegetable Cleansing Powders arc of great as sistance to patients, and facilitate the evacuation of bad humours; they soften, cleanse, and detach the acrimonious phlegm; are cooling, and allay the thirst.
