would be a valuable public benefit. I conclu

into many hands, some of whom would proba

the original and certain remedy for those ob* ;
stinaU diseases, seme of which have so long j
baffled the skill ofmeiical science:

which oftentimes terminate in ulceiated can-!

the name of catarrhs, of every description.
J?h Rheumatic pains of the joint s;
6th Sprains and bruises of every description,
or i n whatever part situated;
7th Tt Urs of all kinds. In this complaint ;
the patient, in applying the ointment, must
keep the part outof water:
8th Chilblains wrpartsaffected by frost.
It is also one of the best remedies for burns
and scalds. It eases the pain and draws the
fire out *n a short time. i
For women** swelled breasts and glandular
swolli gs, it is superior to any medicine yet
known to the medical taculty. It is much sa
e? than mercurial app ication?, (as it does not
contain the smallest atom of any preparation 1
of the mineral,) because it does not ay the
patient liable to injury from exposure to cold.
This Ointment has cured sores ol many years
standing. Where it is impossible or imprudent
to heal the exter:«l sure, in consequence of
the bones becoming carious or rotten, it will
stop the progress of the caries, increase the
quantity of discharge, remove the offensive
smell, and case the pains.
It cures the worst Felons and Whitlows, on
applicat ion of forty-eight hours.
The following notices on this may suffice:—

Doctor IV. (runton: Sir—1 now under
ta*e to do what 1 should have done long
since. Two or three years my wife was
afflicted with what the Doctors call car
buncles on her back, and her sufferings
trom which,for two months,were beyond
all description: they broke, at different
times, into from fifty to one hundred
holes, and when the cores were extract
ed, and the skin cut off, the places be
came one large sore, aboat six inches in
circumference, and were then an inch in
depth. She was attended by one of the ,
first Physicians in this City, and vari
ous remedies were tried without render
ing her any relief, or preventing the
sores from increasing in size tosuch a
degree, that we became seriously appre
hensive that she couid not survive much
longer. A friend culling to see her one
da\% and advising the use of Judkins’s
Ointment, I procured some, and, howev
er incredible it may appear, yet such is
the fact, two piasters effected a perfect
cure. Yours, respectfully,

lliat last summer I w as afflicted with a

induced me to get a jug of it—but it hap

I used it according to the printed direc

Mr. Herston’s, travelling to the west
stopped at my house, during the time, on
looking at the ointment I had, he imme
diately pronounced it iot of his make,
and furnished me with one which was.
On opening and smelling it, I was sensi

like it. I then applied the ointment he

must not betaken; neither must they betaken
by persons of hectic or consumptive habits, j
They may be used successfully by either men j
or women in all Hypochondriac, Hysteric or j

9N consequence of the very great and increas
ing demand for this invaluable preparation,
induced by the many cures which have been ef
fected by the use of it in cases of Asiatic Chole
ra, common Cholera Morbus in Children, and
disorders of the Rowels generally, the Proprie
tor has prepared, and will continue to keep on
hand, a large supply. Head and believe!
This Remedy has been used by many eminent
Physicians, some of whom have charge of the
Largest Hospitals in the United States, where
the Cholera lias prevailed to a great extent, and
been fatal to Intemperate, aged, and lunatic
persons. 1 heir confidence in this Medicine is
such, that they say they are not afraid of the
most Inveterate cases of Asiatic Cholera when
taken in time.
The following are only a small proportion of
the certificates 1 have of the efficacy of this Cer
tain Remedy for Cholera Those opposed to
Quackery will at once set* this is nothing of the
kind—for those persons who have subscribed
their names to these certificates, live among us
and are known to be men of the first standing,
and upon whose words the utmost reliance can
be placed.
When the Cholera was raging here to a great
extent, the Rev. l)r. John French had occasion
to use this preparation twice in his own family,
and has given the following certificate of its ef
ficacy !
“On Thursday, my little son came home from
school, making g?feat complaint of sick stomach,
and pain in the bowels. He looked to be quite
sick. I immediately gave him a dose of tins
medicine; he was presently relieved and has not
complained since.
“On Friday, while absent from home, a white
girl living at my house, was taken with nausea
and pain in the bowels. In the course of a few
hours she had five discharges from her bowels.
My wife gave her a dose of this medicine, and,
to use her own words, it acted like a charm.-—
She was well before I returned to t e house,
and has remained so ever since.”

IN that long tram ot diseases winch seem to
grow with the growth ot civilized society,
Consumption takes the lead in its relentless
i inroads upon human life;yet this dreadful dis
order is easily overcome in its earlier stages.
It is only when neglected that it arrives at the
terrific maturity which so often baffles the sa
gacity of professional science. An obstinate
cough is the customary forerunner of the pul
monary consumption Improper neglect in the
timely administration of simple and salutary
medicines, is suie to bt reproved by a dtead

; Albion Corn Blaster softens the corn,
j however old and tough, ami extracts it to
the very roots, The relief aflordtd is gentle,
immediate, and thorough.
The proprietor begs leave to submit the fol
lowing c*se, from Mr Sloweli, who is we if
known to the inhabitants ol tins c>ty, especial
!y at the South Knd and South Boston, as a
very worthy and respectable citizen:
A Case.
Siu—I do not hesitate to give my most un
qualified approbation in favor of your valuable
Albion Corn Blaster. By the use of less than
a box, Mrs. Sloweli has been cured of a corn
on each 'foot, which had been exceedingly
troublesome and painful for years, and I think
it but justice to your invaluable preparation
to add, (for the encouragement of those who,
owing to repeated disappointments in the va
rious renn-dies resorted to, have finally des
paired of a cure,) that ) our Blaster cur»-d her
corns, after trying other highly recommended
remedies to no purpose; and what increases
my confidence in the superiority of your Blas
ter, is the fact, that it has been used by seve
ral of my neighbors with equal!) good success.
