RELFE’S a?- Botanical Drops! aretvery year increasing their long established repu tation They have outlived many rival preparations, and are continually gaining upon public confidence. The Botanical Drops have been successfully admin istered for many years, as a thorough remedy for that well known and prevalent class of inveterate diseases which originate from a vitiated habit of body, or an he reditary predisposition in the patient, and general y appear under the various and distressing shape*©! Scrofula, Salt Rheum, Leprosv, St. Anthony sFi?e, Fever Sore*. White Swellings, Scurvy, Foul arid Ob stinate Ulcers, Sore Legs and Eyes, Scald Head, and In the last mentioned condition of the system, the Botanical Drops will be found to eradicate the lurk ing poison, where mercury has totally failed, and thus p-event the patient from entailing the seeds of an he reditary disease on his offspring. Dr. Relfe’s Botanical Drops are successfully used in case* of violent eruptions after the measles—red blotches—pimples on the face—festering eruptions on the skin—and other diseases of the external surface; and are one of the best Spring and Autumnal physics known, to free the system from humors. A physician of eminence, who had witness'd the ef ficacy of this article, had the candor recently to ack nowledge to the proprietor, that he considered it the best medicine kuown, for the complaints for which it is intended, and that it ought deservedly to stand at the head o? the whole class of such remedies. - Price $1 a bottle, o- 6 bottles for $5 WHITE TEETH!

This is an elegant and pleasant preparation in every respect, and has, for many years past, given universal satisfaction wherever it has been used. The Antiseptic Dentrifice 19 exempt from acid and other deleterious ingredients, which too frequently enter the composition of tooth powders in common use. and it whitens the enamel of the teeth without doing it the least injury. The regular use of this ad mired powder, by purifying the mouth and preventing the accumulation of tartar, operates as the best pre ventive of the Tooth Ache. The Dentrifice removes discolorations, and restores the beautiful native white ness of the enamel. As its application braces and strengthens the Gums, it secures to them their neauny and florid hue, and, by removing all offensive foreign accumulations from the teeth, preserves the natural sweetness of the breath.

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 easily overcome in its earlier stages. It is only when neglected that it ttr rives at the terrific maturity which so often baffles 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 reproved by a dreadful succession of consumptive symptoms—oppression of the breast; greenish and % bloody spittle; ulcerated lungs and hectic fever; shii veiled extremeties, 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 whis pers her flattering tale—cold extremities, and a pre mature death. * For the various stage! of this complaint, one of the most approved remedies ever yet discovered is DR. RELFE’S ASTHMATIC PILLS. This exceedingly powerful, and yet equally safe and innocent preparation, has effected thorough and rapid cures upon patients supposed to have been far advanc ed in a confirmed Consumption, and who have exhibit ed the appearances which usually indicate a fatal ter mination of the disorder. As the Pills require in ordinary cases no confine raent, they may be administered with confidence and safety to all ages and classes of people. Unexampled success has hitherto attended their administration in a great variety of cases; and the proprietor can refer to a multitude, which testify to their efficacy in reviving the emaciated victim from the bed of disease, and re storing him to the blessings of accustomed health and activity. > Price $1 for whole boxes of 30 pills, and 50 cents for half do. of 12 pills, with directions. Debilitated Females! complaints peculiar to the female part of the JL community, have been long successfully treated by the administration of the Aromatic Pills, originally prescribed and compounded by Dr Relfe. They cleanse the blood from those disorders of the female constitution, for which the pills.are an effectual speci fie; they restore a free circula ion, reform the irregular operations of the sanguiferous system, and rectify the disordered habits. The proprietor's confidence in the superior excellence of this equally inoocent and pow erful preparation, is founded on the most decisive tes timony from many restored patients. He can assure this portion of the public, that when DR. RELFE’S AROMATIC PILLS FOR FEMALES are regularly taken, according to the directions, ac companying them, they revive and establish the desir ed healthy habits, and restore to the pallid counte nance the natural glow of health and good spirits. Married ladies will find the pills equally useful, ex cept in cases of paegnancy, when they must not be taken) neither must they be taken by persons of hec tic or consumptive habits. They may be used success fully by either men or women in ail Hypochondriac, Hysteric or Vapourish disorders. In all cases of this description, the pills purify, invigorate, and revive the disordered system.

SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,) Prepared by C. HERSTONS, near Frederick town% Maryland. Richmond. Va. July 15, 1830. 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, I have made an improvement in the same, and taken out a pa tent thereon. N. SHEPHERD. 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 his letters patent, now to call the Ointment after his own name. Henceforth it will be known by the name of SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC OINT MENT, (formerly Judkins'.) When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and had, in several instances, experienced its good effects, l sent it to several physicians, with instructions in what cases to apply it, who were of opinion that the Oint ment would be a valuable public benefit. I concluded that the Ointment would occasionally fall into many hands, some of whom would probably undertake to make it, and knowing the difficulty of the process—ne vertheless, it might be progated in this adulterated si tuation, 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 remedy for those obstinate diseases, some of which have so long baffled the skill of me dical science: # # 5 1st White swellings of every description; F 2d Sore legs and ulcers of long standing, 3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularly those hardened turnons in women’s breasts, which oftentimci : terminate in ulceiated cancers; ' j 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, or ir : whatever part situate; . 1 yth Tetters of all kinds. In this complaint the pa I tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the par outof water; 8th Chilblains or partsaffected by frost. ft is also one of the best remedies for burns and scalds. It ease9 the pain and draws the fire out In i e short time. For inflamed women’s breasts and glandular swcl * lings, it is superior to any medicine yet known to the medical faculty. It is much safer than mercurial ap plication?, (as it does not contain the smallest atom o! any preparation of the mineral,) because it does no lay the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold. This Ointment has cured sore9 of many years stand in^. Where it 19impossible or imprudent to heal tin if external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming i- carious oi rotten, it will stop the progress of the caries e incret.se the quantity of discharge, remove the uffen l- sive smell, and ease the pains. e It cures the worst Felods and Whitlows, on applica i- tion of forty-eight hours i- CERTIFICATES.

Lee’s Dispensary 12th mo 30th, 1833. W. STABLER. The following extract is published by Dr. Lee’s au thority, viz;— Extract of a letter, written by a very respectable gen tleimn, residing in Baltimore, to the subscriber, who deems it his duty, though unauthorized, to lay it be fore the public, withholding the writer’s name, for 1 particular reference, should any require it person ally. SAM. H. p. LEE. Baltimore, August, 1838. Doctor,^. II. P. Lee, New London, Conn. Dear Sir—It is now upwards of twenty years that I have used your New London Bdious Piils 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. 1 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 bad made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under this impression, I 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 “ all was not fair in medicine, as well as in politics, and called at several of our apothe caries for your pills, with your written signature. 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 I had always experienced, and am so much rejoiced on finding ray self in possession of a medicine I so highly prize, that that 1 cannot, injustice, refrain from giving you this information. 0£/* To avoid the imposition of counterfeits and spu rious imitations, as related above, the purchaser hai only to examine the bill of directions covering eacl box, and if signed at foot, in my own handwriting, im mediately under my printed name, they are genuine and prepared by me; bul if oxlt the printed name i affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided. S. H.JP. LEF., New London, Conn. Dec. 1823.__ HYGBIANISM. THE following testimonials of the superior efficac of the HYGEIAN MEDICINES in the cure o our diseases, speak in a language which must carr; conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:— Brown Uxiveusitt, Dec. 25, 1833* To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hygeian Vege table Universal Medicines, for the State of Ithodi Island: Sir—Gratitude to the Great Preserver of Men com pels me, in compliance with your request, to give j brief statement of a cure, which, l think, I receive* | from the Hygeian Medicines. I give publicity to th ! same the more cheerfully, because thereby, perhaps i I may be useful to some of my fellow-men, who ma, ! be afflicted with a similar disease. My complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption and that my real condition maybe explicitly undei stoo l, I state, in connexion with the relation of th cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep tember, 1832, 1 caught a severe cold, which settled o 1 ; my lungs; I was confined to my room about one week | with a fever, attended with considerable cough; m I cough soon abated, and apparently, I was regainin • my health; when, after about three weeks, in th ; ; course of the night, having returned the evening b< | fore in usual health, I found myself bleed ng at th L lungs. I had not, to my knowledge, received any hui or strain, to which the cause of this might be attribu ed. I spat blood, occasionally, for four days; it lei ' ; me with some fever, pain in the breast, very little ap ' | petite, and withal, very weak • A few weeks determined that I was in a decline, received the attention of the most skilful Physician; who often seemed to check the progress of the di ease, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovery. Bn rehpse upon relapse, and each bringing me lowe than the preceding, seemed to baffle all human ski! . and warn ine of an approaching dissolution. Thu: months after the first attack, a “ tubercle” [small u cei] broke in the Inngs, after which I spat blood, on s day. 1 continued to decline twomonths longer, whe . 1 1 obtained the Hygeian Medicines. I had now bee s ! unable to sit up a whole day, for four months and . a i r »a r ti i »•/* i ■ ] . nan. »jy icti were uuiu ituu sleep uiiauum 1 ! cold night sweats "constant, tongue furred, pulse in th . afternoon from seventy five to one hundred per m t mite, food produced great distress, appetite ver t poor, pain in the breast directly opposite the hear i ' attended with some cough, &c. &c. Such was m » j condition, when I first became acquainted with th j | Hygeian Medicines I commenced taking the mod . ; cines, four pills at a dose, and increased the dose da !y, one up to the number of twelve- In about te days, my appetite became good, and food produce no distress, sleep soon became sound and refreshing . and in about forty days the symptoms of the diseas had nearly all disappeared. 1 took the medicine sixty day a regularly every nigh ; averaging about ten pills at a dose; the greatest nun f her taken at any one time was fifteen. After this, - took about four doses a week, until I had taken aboi . thirteen hundred pills, when I found myself restore to health. After I commenced the Hygoian, I too f no other medicine. One year from the first attack, t was able to resume my studi s in college, where • have since remained without any recurrence of th disease Hitherto 1 have been convalescent; and my strength is not yet fully returned, I am certain have less pains, and am more free from temporal - sickness, than at any time since my earliest recolle tion.

The pai ! was a violent burning pain, almost intolerable; so se p vere, that she could not sit up for upwards of tlire t years. It was occasioned by over-lacing hers If, an , perhaps, over exertion w ith it. After using a fev ■ doses of No, 1 and 2, alternately, about eight pills f< ■ a dose, the pain decreased, and, by perseverance i • their use, she is now restored to health; and 1 hav , no objection to this case being made public for lb ' benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours Duly, H.
