j SYRUP OF CARRAGEEN.
Recommended by the Faculty,
F HOWARD’S Original and Genu
• ine Compound Syrup of Carrageen,
a safe, simple, pleasant and effectual
remedy for Cough’s, Asthmas. Consump
tions, &c. This Syrup has stood the test
of experience and is now extensively pre
scribed by Physicians.
Cd^Those who may have occasion to
use the preparation are advised to do so
under the guidance and direction of a
Physician..^
Many certificates might be obtained of
its efficacy, but the following are deemed
sufficient.
Certificates.—The compound syrup of
Carrageen, prepared by Mr F. Howard;
I deem an excellent and safe expectorant;
composed, as it is, principally, of the most
approved and efficient of this class of me
dicines, neatly and judiciously combined
with mucilages.
March 31, 1836 Titos. Miller, M. D.
Washington, March 29, 1836.
I am acquainted with the composition
of Mr Howard’s “compound syrup of
carrageen,” and have used it in my prac
tice, to the decided advantage of those of
my patients to whose cases it was appro
priate; it is a compound of safe and sim
ple expectorants and mucilaginous de
mulcents, so combined as to make a plea
sant and efficient remedy, in chronic and
spasmodic coughs, whooping cough, and
some forms of asthma.

THE DIFFERENCE.
IT cannot be denied that whilst many medi
cines which are recommended to the pub.
lie, have not even the negative merit of harm*
lessness, there are others which it would be
great injustice indeed and suicidal prejudice
to involve, untried, in a common condemna
tion. And when a medicine comes endorsed
with all the names that have adorned the an.
nals of the medical profession, and warranted
by the seal and signature of long and uniform
success, its proprietor makes no unreasonable
demand upon public confidence, when he
claims for i* a superior consideration.
The Camomile preparation of Dr. W. Evans
is undeniably entitled to this enviable distinc
tion; for whilst no medical authority in exis
tf. ce condemns it, every medical work which
alludes to it, and every medical practitioner
that is acquainted with it, freely acknowledges
its pre-eminent virtues; and that the latter
should do so in opposition to their personal in
terest must be attributed either to their candor
and love of truth, or to their unwillingness to
fly in the face of all observation, and the testi
mony of thousands.
I)r. W. K vans does not pretend that his
Camomile Tonic Pills cure all diseases. He
frankly and conscientiously admits that they
will not. lie lays no claim to the discovery
of the “Philosopher’s Stone;” and wishes no
body to believe that he sells the “Elixir of
Life;” but he does sav, and does beiieve, and
can prove, that in debility and impaired con
stitutions; in nervous diseases of all kinds; in
weakness of the digestive organs; in incipient
consumptions, whether of the lungs or the
liver; in the dreadful debility occasioned by
the use of purgatives; iu palsy; rheumatism;
(more especially) in the sickness incident to
mothers and to females of relaxed nerves; in
every case of delirium tremens, or that disease
which is brought on by intemperance; in the
wretched horrors of mind and body, which ac
crue from occasional inebrety; in loss of appe*
tite; languor; melancholy; pains in the head;
libms or sides, in corrupt; sallow and uncomely
comcplexion, caused by the bad state of the
fluids—m all these cases, and in some otners
mentioned in the bills of directions given with
his medicines, he does say, that the Camomile
Tonic Pills, interchanged occasionally with his
aperient family Pills, (the best known) which
are sold with them, will effect immediate relief;
and if used but for a fair period of trial, a perfect
cure. This much is placed beyond a doubt
bv daily testimonies which would be given on
oath, and for this much Dr W Evans can
conscientiously request confidence. He there,
fore need only add that his Camomile Tonic
Pills, together with his excellc*nt Family Ape
rient Piqs, Can be obtained, wholesale or re
tail. at No 7 Division st , near Chatham square.
New York, and of his authorised Agents in
in town and country.
(j^Dr. W. Evans—Sir: Be pleased to re
ceive the thanks of one who has been a great
sufferer for several years, for the great benefit
§he has received from the virtues of your ines
timable Camomile She has suffered
with pain and distress in the head, a tightness
across the stomach, shortness of breath, and
palpitation of the heart, exercise would al
most overcome her; but since using your Ca
momile Tonic Pills, her complaints are re
moved —she is able to exercise without fatigue,
and she is happy to say can now enjoy life
comfortable again.

(^Newark, July 18, 1836—Dear Sir: For
four years 1 hare been so unwell that i was un
able to attend to my business, and for the last
four or five months was confined to my room

stomach, indigestion and loss of appetite with

different kinds of medicine without effect, until
I commenced taking your invaluable Camomile

PETER’S VEGETABLE PILLS
ARE recommended as decidedly supe
rior to any other known combination
of Medicine ever offered to the American
people.
When taken according to the direction
accompaning them, they are highly bene
ficial in the prevention and cure of bilious
fevers, fever and ague, dispepsia, liver
complaints,sick head ache, jaundice,asth
ma, dropsy, rheumatism, enlargement of
the spleen, piies, cramp and bilious cholic,
female obstructions, heart burn, rancid
furred tongue, distention of the stomach
and bowels, incipient diarrhoea, flatu
lence, habitual costiveness, loss of appe
tite, blotched or sallow complexion, and i
in all cases of torpor of the bowels, when
a cathartic or an aperient is needed.—
They have the testimony of the whole
medical profession in their favor, while
not a single case of ill consequences or in
efficiency, can be alleged against them.
Perhaps no article of the kind has ever
been offered to the public, supported by
testimonials of a character so decisive,
from sources as respectable, or that has
given more universal satisfaction.
Wherever these pills have been once
introduced into a family, they become a
standingremedy, and are called for again
and again, which is sufficient proof of
their good qualities.
It is a truth, that almost every person
who has ever used Peter’s Vegetable Pills,
recommend them to their friends, and it
is from this circumstance alone, that they
have gained such an unrivalled reputa
tion.
Prepared by Jos. Priestly Peters, M. D.
at his Institution, for the cure of obsti
nate diseases, by means of Vegetable re
medies, No. 129, Liberty street, N. York,
inventor, ank sole proprietor. Each box
contains 40 Pills—price 50 cents.
DEATH AND DISEASE.
A fens sana, in carport sano.
“A mind well lodged, and masculine of
course.”
Death met Disease the other clay,
A nd thus they gossipped on the way.
Death—How comes it friend, in eve
ry shape,
You let so many folks escape?
A few years back and every elf,
Once sick, you laid upon the shdf,
Dyspepsia then had power to kill—
Asthma defied the doctor’s skill—
The lancet too at all times sought,
Its hecatomb of victims brought,
Then Costiveness could fatal prove,
And Rheumatism no power remove;
A simple cold, where’er you went,
A subject (o my kingdom sent.
How comes it then, that now a-days,
Folksslip your gripe and go their ways?
Asthma suosides —Dyspepsia cured,
The lancet is no more endured;
The sick to day forget all sorrow’,
And laugh at both of us to-morrow.
Disease—Dread sire! I use all means
I can,
To abbreviate the life of man:
I dog his footsteps from his birth,
’Till he returns to mother earth;
And though ’tis true that my success
Is daily growing less and less,
This satisfaction I can feel,
I have not slackened in my zeal.
1 use all means I used of oid,
Changes of weather—hot and cold,
I give them colds; I give them pains;
I rack their bones; I fire their veins,
l poison them w’ith rancid bile.
In place of the digestive chyle,
Yet all is useless—nothing kills.
Death— How’s that?
Disease—They all take Peters’ Pills,
These invaluable Pills, are for sal** in
Alexandria by Wm. Stabler, C. Far
quhar and Wm. Harper, and by all the
principal Druggists in the U. States,

ing of Providence, have been cured in

or Nervous Affections and all diseases
of the Liver, Yellow Fever, Gout, Rheu

Worms, Scurvy, Itching ot the Skin,
King’s Evil, and all Cutaneous Disor
ders; in short every comnlaint to which
the human frame is so direfullv subject,
under all their varied forms and names:
as it has been indisputably demonstrated,
that Man is subject to only one real dis
ease, that is the Impurity of the Blood,
(from whence springs every complaint
that can possibly assail his complicated
frame) and a very slight trial ofthe Uni
versal Medicines will evince their all
sufficiency to cleanse and purify that
source of life, as well as disease, and re
store the suffering patient to the blessings
of Health.
This valuable Medicine being compos
ed only of vegetable matter, or medici
nable herbs, and warranted, on oath, as
containing not one particle of mercurial,
mineral, or chemical substances (ail 01
which are uncongenial to the nature of
man, and, therefore destructive to the hu
man frame) is found to be perfectly
harmless to the most tender age or
weakest frame, under every stage of hu
man suffering, and, at the same time, the
most certain in searching out the root of
every complaint, however deep, and of
performing a cure, that was ever offer
ed to tne world.
The Medicines are comprised in these
different articles only, viz. in two kind ol
Pills, designated No. 1 and No. 2; the first
is a powerful, but most gentle, mild ape
rient or opening medicines, detaching
and partially removing the bilious ropy
humors, whilst :he No. 2 pills carry off
those and the serous, acrid and putrid
humours incidental to the body, and act
together as a ferret in a warren never
resting until every avenue of the human
frame is thoroughy searched and cleans
ed of its impurities.
The genuine Medicines, can be had of

When, fir m disease of neglect, the hair be j
comes hard, harsh, and dry, and beginsto fall
off, the Itestorative advances its growth, im
proves its appearance, adds to its elasticity,
and bestows to it a transcendent gloss.
This article is intended to supersede all o- j
ther preparations for the hair; and those who
use it will find in it a luxuriant appendage to ;
embellish, and for many reasons much prefer- (
able (particularly in the nursery) to any thing ,
of the kind heretofore offered to the public, j

HYGEIAN PILLS.
ILLIAM STABLER, Chemist and
Druggist, Alexandria,gencrala
gent for the sale of Dr. Ralph’s Improved
Hygeian Pills, respectfully states that he
is enabled to supply this Medicine to the
public and his mercantile connection, up
on the same terms that the General Of
fice at New York supplies them,—a li
beral discount being made to retail mer
chants. For a description of the qualities
of these pills, he refers to the following
advertisement of Doctor Ralph, viz:—
‘ The very general demand for Dr.
Ralph’s Hygeian Pills, can only be ac
counted for by reason of the unexam
pled benefit and cures which thousands
have experienced from their use. More
over, they are founded on the wisdom
and experience of the British College of
Physicians and Surgeons, of London:
and are recommended by the writings
and practice ofSir Astley Cooper, Mr.
Abernethy, and Dr. Babington; as well as
by the greater part of the more eminent
practitioners of England and tk*'Conti*
nent.
The limits of an advertisement will not
allow of entering upon an explanation
ofthe principle on which this medicine is
suited to so many different complaints.—
It must suffice to mention, that each
