TH L. MARTIN. H YGEIANISM THE following testimonials of the superior efficacy of the HYGEIAN MEDICINES in the cure of our diseases, speak in a language which must carry conviction to the minds of the most skeptical:— Bbowx Uiiivsbsitt, Dec. 25, 183.3. To Mr. Samuel Young, Agent for the Hygeian Vege table Universal Medicines, for the State t4 Rhode Island. Sir—Gratitude to the Great Proaerver of Men com pels me, in compliance with your request, to give a brief statement of a cure, which, I think, ^received from the Hygeian Medicines. I give publicity to the same the more cheerfully; because thereby, perhaps, I may be useful to some of my fellow-men, who may be afflicted with a similar disease. My complaint was called Pulmonary Consumption, and that my real condition may be explicitly unler stood, I state, in connexion with the relation of the cure, some of the symptoms of the disease. In Sep tember, 1832,1 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 mv 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 petite, ami 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. But rel»pse upon relapse, and each bringing me lower than the preceding, seemed to baffle all human skill, and warn me of an approachkig dissolution. Thus, months after the first attack, a “ tubercle’* [small ul cer] broke in the Inngs, after which I apat blood, one day. I continued to decline twomunilu longer, when I obtained the llygeian Medicines I had now been unable tu ait up a whole d»y, for four months and a half. My feet were cold and lifeless sleep unsound, col«l 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, Ac. Ac. Such was my condition, when I first became acquainted with the Hygeian Medicine* I commenced taking the medi cines, four pills at a dose, and increase-! 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 fortv 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 I had taken about thirteen hundred pill*, when I found myself restored to health. After I commenced the H>gi-ian, I took no other medicine. One year from the first attack, I was able to resume my studi*s in college, where I have since remained without any recurrence of the disease. Hitherto I have been convalescent; and il my strength is not yet fully returned, I am certain I liave leaa pains, and am more free from temporary •ickness) than at any time since my earliest recollec tion. Yours, with respect, HORACE T. LOVE. Dn H. SRirHCARD Moat Dear Sir—I wish to state that my sister, after severe suffering, and employing a medical man three years, was relieved by the use of the Universal Medicine*. 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 was a violent burning pain, almost intolerable; so see vere, that she could not sit up for upwards of three years. It was occasioned by overdacing herso If, and perhaps, over exertion with it. After using a few, doses of No. 1 and 2, alternately, about eight pills for a dose, the pain decreased, and, by perseverance in their use, she is now restored to health; and I have no objection to this case being made public for the benefit of others; and am, dear sir, yours truly, H. DYER. Lowell, Massachusetts, Feb. 8, 1834 In justice to l)r. M., her medical adviser, when he heard her improvement in health, he recommended 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 ol man, and therefore destruc live to the human frame,) is found to be perfectly harmless to the most tender age or weakest frame, un der everyytage of human suffering; the most pi asant and benign in it- operation, and at the same time the moat searching out the root of every complaint, how ever deep, and of perfotming 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 strength, and without the fear of catching cold, or attention to dress or diet, in any way different from their accustomt d habits. These pills cure all cases, and cannot be taken to excess (experience, which is the touchstone of all human knowledge, has long borne testimony to the fact; and extensive use of them hss already verified its truth in this country. These medicines cure by purging;andyetthe weak, the feeble, the infirm, the nervous, the delicate, are in a few day* strengthened by their operation, beca ise they clear the body of its bad humours, and invariably procure sound sleep.

JUST received, a fresh supply of tlie above useful Medicine, direct from Or. Lee’s Dispensary 12th mo JOtli, ifctd.i W. STAHLKK. The following extract is published by Ur. Lee’s au thority, viz:— Baltimore, August, 1828. Doctor S. H. 1*. Lei, New London, Conn. Dear Sir—It is now upwards of twenty years that I have used your New London Bdious I’ills in my fami ly, and always found them an efficient purgative in al* most every description of disease, and believe they sa« red 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; md having, since then, been sadly disappointed in eve* ry instance of using them, I began to conclude tfult you bad made your fortune, and abandoned their minutac lure to mercenary and unfaithful hands. Under ih.a impression, I accidentally saw an advertisement of yours in a New YorX newspaper, designating spurious imitations from your own manufacture, by having your Will I’TEN SIGN A I'UIIK 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, | be gan to suspect that ” all was not fair in medicine, as well as in politics, and called at several of our apothe caries fur your pills, witli your written signature. I found many 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 se< fin ssposseion of a medicine I so nighty prize, that that I cannot, injustice, refrain from giving you this information. To avoid the imposition ofcounterfeita 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 orlt the printed name n affixed, they are spurious, and to be avoided.

SHEPHERD’S patent specific OINTMENT, (formerly Judkins’,) Prepared by C. HERSTONS, near Frederick• town, Maryland. ltiCHM'<!vn. Va- July 15, 1850. rW^lIK, public vrill be pleased to understand tint I wit ! 1L 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,! permitted the ointment to bear his name. The terra of the patent hiving expired on the 25th June, I have made an improvement in the same, and taken oat a pa tent thereon. N. SHKI'HKKI). 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 grunted to him in his letters pater,'., now to call the Ointment after his own name. Henceforth it will be known by the name of SHEPHERD’S PATENT SPECIFIC DINT MEN l\ (formerly Judkins'.) When I first made and prepared this Ointment, and had, in several instances, experienced its good effects, I sent it tn 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. tuition, as it might in some degree resemble the or'igi. nal—and in this way ita good effects would be obhters 'ted Under these considerations, I secured the origi nal and certain remedy fur those obstinate diaeawi, some of which have so long baffle J 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, particularlythn* hardened tumors in wnm-n’s breasts, which oftentimes terminate in ulceiated cancers; 4th Felons; or what some people know by thename of catarrhs, of every description. 5th Itheumatic pains of the joints; 6th Sprains and bruises of every description, or in whatever part situate; 7th Tetters of allkinds. Inthis complaint the pi tient, in applying the ointment, must keep the part outof water; 8th Chilblains or partsafTected by frost. It is also one of the best remedies for bums and scalds. It eases the pain and drawa 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 ia much safer than mercurial ap plications, (as it does not contain the smallest atom of any preparation of the mineral,) because it does not i«y the patient liable to injury from exposure to cold. Tins <liniment has cured sore.s of many years stand ing. Where it is impossible or imprudent to heal the external sore, in consequence of the bones becoming carious o> rotten, it will stop the progress of the caries, increme the quantity of discharge, remove the offen sive smell, and ease the pains. It cures the worst Felods and Whitlows, on applica tion of forty-eight hours. CERTIFICATES. Fromthe [fan. J>hn Cocke, Member of the House of Re presentatives in Congress.
