RYQffilAN PILLS. I
WILLIAM STABLER, Cue mist and
Druggist, Alexandria, general a
fcent for the sale of Dr. Ralph’s Improved
Hvoeian Pills, respectfully stales that he
i3 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 mei
chants. For a description of the qualities
ofthese pills, he refersto 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 o
Physicians and Surgeons, of London,
and are recommended by the wilting*
and practice of Sir Astley Cooper, i r.
Abernethy, and Dr. Babington;as well as
by the greater part of the more eminent
practitioners of England and ta * Conti
nent- .. _ . .. _
The limits oi an aaveniseuicm «
allow of entering upon an explanation
ofthe principle on which this medicine s
suited to so many differentcomplaiaU.
It must suffice to mention, that euc.i
package ofthe pillscontains three boxes,
two of which are gently opening, wita a
strengthening quality combined, adapter
to the most feeble constitutions; wmie tne
otheris purgative, but more or less so ac
cording to the dose. Thus, by varying
these Pills, and altering the doses agree
able to the directions given, it is aston
ishing to witness the number of diseases
which are cuied or much alleviated o>
them, while there is no disease whatever
which can possibly be injured by their
use. They contain no mercury, and may
be taken without the inconveniences 01
caution which other medicines genet a -
ly require. The particular diseases io
which theirelficacy has been proved and
ested,in many thousand individual ou^c^
are the following:—
Dyspepsia, and the whole of tnose nu
merous maladies which arise from habitu
al constipation oft he bowels; Apoplexy,
and all affections of the head; Gout;
Rheumatism; Scrofula, with every spe
ciesof Salt Rheum and Disorder of the
Skin; threatening Consumptive Cougn;
Liver Diseases, whether the effect of in
temperance or hot climate; tevei and
A true; Common Fever, '.Vc.; Inflamma
tions; Cholera Morbus, &c.; Jaundice
Dropsy; Piles; Gravel; Gleet, and certain
other complaints of the Urinary and Ge
nital organs. &c.&c.
This medicine is also eminently useful
in the whole class ol disorders peculiar to
the icmale constitution, especially in Ner
vous and Hysterical disorders, Epileptic
Fits,St. Vitus’s Dance &c. &c.; Sick Head
Ache, certain obstructions, sexual weak
ness &c. In smaller doses, it tnaj oc
relied on as the best and safest medi
cine in pregnancy, and for the common
disorders ot cnildren.
The directions given with tnese Puis
are remarkably plain and particuiai the
proper dose and management ot them be
ing carefully mentioned undei tne ni_a_,
each disorder separately.

Graduate of the University of Edin
burgh: Member of the Royal College
of Surgeons London; Lecturer on
Mid wifery and the Diseases of Wo
men and Cnil iron, Jfcc. and authoi
of the ‘'Domestic Guide to Medicine.’
N. x3. Dr. Ralph’s Domestic Guide is
a little volume designed (or the use of
every family, particularly those resid
ing in the country. It is written in the
plainest manner, and is intended to ena
ble individuals, both male and female, to
undertake the management of tne;r own
complaints with safety and success.
The price is very low, being only 50
cents, though neatly bound in board:,
Sec. indeed the object of its pubiica
tion is rather with a view of spreading
useful knowledge on disease, than of
any profitarisingfrom its sale.

was afflicted with a bad cough and pain in the

by taking two doses of this medicine she was

BRANDRETH’S PILLS.
THE New York Sun says: BltANDRETH’S
PILLS have been used among many o
our friends, and in our own family we have
used them nearly four years when we required
medicine; in that period, no Doctor save Mr.
Brandreth has crossed our threshold, and no
medicine besides the Doctor’s Pills used. Our
beiiet is ‘keep your boweis and blood pure,’ and
every kind of disease will be prevented or cur
ed. The Brandreth Pills are eminently calcu
lated to do this, and thereby much lessen the
sum of human misery.
The New York Evening Star says: Bran
dretn’s Pills are a medicine which their own
intense worth will always secure for them a
large and ready sale.—They have deservedly a
high reputation; and as a family and anti-bitli
ous remedy it would be difficult to equal them
among all the patent medicines of the present
day.
The New York Commercial says: Thev re
move all morbid humors and purity the bibod.
To the whole family of .Man.—We feel botli
pleasure and satisfaction in recommending to
all our readers, Brandreth’s Vegetable Pills* as
the most certain, most safe, and invaluable
medicine extant. __ As antibilious and aperient
Pills, we are perfectly convinced theyatand
far above all others; as a certain cure in all
cases of worms, scurvy, scorbutic humors,
erysipelas, and all affections of the skin, drop-(

they wil* be tound in valuable.—London Times.

MO III SOM’S FILLS.
THE Genuine Morison’s Fills or Uni
versal Vegetable Medicines of the
British College of Health. These Med:,'
cities cure all diseases which admit o
i cure.
1. They remove from the stomach, liver and
intestines, the blood-making organs,all obstruc
tions to the dire performance of their healthy
functions.
2. They purify the him 1 by increasing;ts va
rious excretions, and prevent disease by ena
blingthe ho ly successfully to resist the pre
disposing and existing causes to dtse ise.
3. They increase tue action of the absorb
ents, by which all morbid, grothsare taken in
to circulation, and afterwarJs expelled from
the body
4. Tney restore the regularity of those pro
cesses upon watch the formation and c-ccula
tion of the blood depends.
These are tbe only medicines known in
which small doses have a poweriui and oeneS
cial effect; and yet, of which, in extreme ca
se*, such very large d ues may be a 1 ninistered
fearlessly, and with greatly increased advan
ta^e to the patient.
The British College of Health haviogrevok
ed,annuUe 1 and made void tbe appointment
Dr. Horatio Shepheard Moat—be has ceased
to be in any manner the agent of the British
College of Health.
George Taylor being now, and from hence
forth, the sole general agent in tue U. States,
ofthe British College of Health, for the sale
of M trison’s Pills, or the Vegetable Universal
Medicine of tbe British College of Health, u
must be evident to all, that no person but the
said George Taylor his any right or authority
to nominate or appoint general agents for the
sale of the above medicines.
Tue former General Agent has very justly
observed, that since the legal decisions w.ncli
have established the claim of the Genuine fly
gean Medicines to protection from direct coun
terfeiters, numberless are the schemes of uo
principled inovators to evade the just penal
ties ot the law, and scarcely a newspaper can
be taken up that does not teem with whole co
lumns of garbled extracts from Mr Morison’:
publications, and by thus unblushmgly assum
tng his ideas, and even his very words, vainh
strive to rob him of his original discovery by
i which he has rescued himself from a series oi
sufferings of thirty-five years continuance, and
led to the foundation of the sound out simple
system of the Hygeiati physiology; whereas,
lad not Mr. Morison propounded this system
to the English community, and had not its
trutn spread w'ith a rapidity commensurate with
its importance through Great Britain, the Con
tinent of Europe, tue Nations the East, and !
the Uni“*d States of America, anc, in fact, hi

their names nor their ignorant pretentions
