TH L. MARTIN. H7GEIANI3M. THE following testimonials of the superior efficacy of the HYGKIAN MEDICINES in the cure of our diseases, apeak in a language which must carry conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:— Raowir Usiyirsitt, Dec. 25, 1833. To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hvgeian Vege table Universal Medicines, for the State of Rhode Island. Sm—Gratitude to the Great Preserver of Men com pels me, in compliance with your request, to give a brief statement of a cure, which, I think, I received from the Hygeian Medicines. I give publicity to the same the more cheerfully, because thereby, perhaps, 1 may be useful to some of my fellow-incn, who may be afflicted with a similar disease. My complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption, and that my real condition may he explicitly unler stool, l state, in connexion with the relation of the | cure, some of the symptoms of the disease, to Sep | tember, 1832, 1 caught a severe coU, which settled on | my lung«; I wasconhned to my room about one week, ' with a fever, atten led with c«nsi Vrahle cough; my . cough soon abated, and apparently, I was regaining I my health; when, after about three weeks, in the ; course ul the night, having returned the evening be i fore in usual health. I found myself bleed ng at the | lungs. I bad not, to my knowledge, received any hurt l or strain, lo which the cause of this might he attribut ed. I spat blood, occasionally, for four days; it left me with some fever, pain in the breast, very little »p petite, ami witnai, very wean A few w eeks determined that l was in a decline I 1 received the attention of the most skilful Physicians, 1 who often seemed tochek the progress of the dis ease, and inspire the hope of a speedy recovery. Hut rei pse upon relapse, 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 iti the lungs, after which I spat blood, one day. I continued to decline two months longer, when I obtained the llygeian Medicines I had now been unable to sit up a whole day, f>>r four months and a half My feet were cold and lifeless, sleep unsound, cold night sweats constant, tongue furred, pulse in the 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, fcc. kc. Such was my condition, when I first became acquainted with the llygeian 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 fo >d 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. After this, I took about four doses a week, until 1 had taken about thirteen hundred pills, when I found myself restored to health. After I commenced the llyg. ian, 1 took no other medicine. One year from the first attack, 1 was able to resume mv studi-s in college, where I have since remained without any recurrence of the disease. Hitherto I have been convalescent; and it my 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, HOUACE T. LOVE. Dr H. SiitPHCARD Moat. Dear Sir—1 wish to state that my sister, after severe suffering, and employing a medical man three years, was relieved by the use of the Universal Medicines. Her complaint was a violent pain and soreness in her side; indeed, to use her own expression, her is on one side had turned in, actually deformed. The pain waa a violent burning pain, almost intolerable; so see vere, that she could not ait up for upwards of three years. It was occasioned by overdacing hers e If, and perhaps, over exertion with it. After using a few, doses of No, 1 and ?, alternately, about eight pills for a dose, the psin decreased, and, by perseverance in their use, she is now restored to health; and 1 have no objection to this case being made public for the benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours truly, H. DYEU. Lowell, Massachusetts, Feb. 8, 1834 In justice to Dr. M„ her medical adviser, when he heard her improvement in health, he recommended pcrseverencc 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 destruc live to the human frame,) is found to be perfectly harmless to the most tender Hge 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 fear of catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way different from their accustomc d habits. These pills cure all cases, and cannot he taken to excess Experience, which is the touchstone of all human knowledge, has long borne testimony to the fact; and extensive use of them ha9 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, beca ise they deal the body of its bad humours, anil invariably procure sound sleep. They are the safest and most efficacious meuicine to lake to sea; preventing scurvy, costiveness, <kc. The Vegetable Cleansing Powders are 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. One, two, or three powders msv be taken throughout the day, mixed in half a wine glass of water. The genuine Medicines can be had of WM.

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 therin, I began to conclude that you had made your fortune, and abandoned their manufac ture to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under tins impression, I accidentally saw an advertisement of yours in a New York newspaper, designating spurious imitations from your own manufacture, by having your WRITTEN SIGNA TURE to each hill of directions, an d that in no instance were the imitations signed with pen anJ ink, although a perfect copy in every other respect. Finding those I had without this test, | be gan to suspect that “ ail 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 miny without this test, but none with it, until I 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 my sel fin ssposseion of a medicine I so highly prize, that that I cannot, injustice, refrain from giving you this information. 0C3* 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, im mediately under my printed name, they are genuine, and prepared by me; but if oslt the printed name is affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.

When I first made and prepared this Ointment, am] had, in several instances, experienced its good effects, I sent it to several physicians, with instructions in what cases to apply it, who were of opinion tint the Mint, ment would be a valuable public benefit. I c mcliuled 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, l secured the origi nal and certain remedv fur those obstinate diseases, some of which have so long baffle J the skill oI me dical science: 1st White swellings of every description; 2d Sore legs and ulcers of long standing, 3d Schirrus or glandular tumors, particularly?

In this complaint the pa tient, iti applying the ointment, must keep the part out of water; 8th Chilblains or partsaffected by frost. It is also one of the best remedies for burns ami scalds. It eases the pain and draws the fire out in s short time. For inflamed women's breasts and glandular swel 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 of any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not lay the patient liab'e to injury from exposure to cold. This Ointment has cured sores of many years stand ing. Where it is impossible or impmdent to heal the exter-al sore, in consequence of the bones becoming carious oi rotten, it will stop the progress of the caries, increi.se the quantity of discharge, remove the offen sive *mell, and ease the pains. It cures the worst Pelods and Whitlows, on applica tion of forty-eight hours. CERTIFICATES. From the IIm. J»hn Cocke, Member of the House of Re presentatives in Congress. WinmwoToBf, Mar- h 22, 1826 Sir — My son having been afflicted for five yean with white swelling, and having applied every reme dy recommended by the most eminent physicians vithin my reach without success, I at length procured one jug of Dr Judkins' Patent Specific Ointment, and m ide the application according to the directions ac companying the Ointment, and Mate, for the benefit of the afflicted, that before one jug was used, a perfect cure was effected. Mv aon has enjoyed good health ever smee. I have no doubt tlut to the Ointment alone he is indebted; for nothing else was used tor more thin nine, months before the application of the Oiiit ment.
