THE GAZETTE.
TUESDAY MORNING, JUNE 27, 1854.
THE FRENCH ADMIRAL to his FLEET.
The following older of the day has been
addressed by Admiral Hamelin to the squad
ron in the Black Sea. It is dated the 20th
ultimo?*—
•^he Vice Admiral Coramander-hi-Chief
testifies his satisfaction to the squadron at
the manner in which it fulfilled its duties
during the last cruise, which has not been
without some lustre for our anas. The Im
perial port of Odessa reduced to ashe9, with
all that it contained; the enemy challenged in
Sevastopol, and not daring to come out; Rus
sian merchant vessels captured at sea or in
open roadstead; the 15 forts which Russia has
held for the last half ceutury on the coast of
Circassia abandoned by her in expectation
of our attacks; and lastly, the Russian Hag
driven from the Black Sea where it preten
ded to be master,—such are the first results
obtained by our ships of the line, or by the
steamers acting under their a'gis. Another
fact, not less remarkable, has been proved,
which is, that the 10 sail of the line of the
two combined squadrons have sailed in com
pany for more than a month in perfect order:
and that, in the midst of thick and almost
continual fogs, they have cruised for 20 days
off Sevastopol, without any accident or with
out bein'* separated, so constant has been
the attention of each to watch the movements
of the Admirals and the signals which were
made to obtain the above result. The Vice
Admiral Commander-in-Chief, has hastened
to point out to the Government of the Empe
ror the fresh claims which the squadron has
thus acquired to the confidence of the country.
The present order of the day shall be read
to the crews assembled for the purpose and
posted upon the mainmast.
“By order, C. Bouet-Willaumez,
“Chefd'EtatMaj. of the Black Sea Squadron.”
CHEESE AS A DIGESTER.
Asa digester, as some not appropriately
call it, cheese—that which is decayed and
mouldy being preferred by connoisseurs—is
often eaten after dinner. The action which
experience seems to have proved it to possess,
in aiding the digestion of what has previous
ly been eaten, is both curious and interest
ing, and has had some light thrown upon it
bv recent chemical research. When the
curd of milk is exposed to tho air in a moist
state for a few day* at a moderate tempera
ture, it begins gradually to decay, to emit a
disagreeable odor, and to ferment. When in
this state, it possesses the property, in certain
circumstances, of inducing a species of chem
ical change and fermentation m other moist
substances with which it Is mixed or is
brought into contact. It acts after the same
manner as sour leaven does when mixed j
with sweet dough.
Now, old and partially decayed cheese acts
in a similar way when introduced into the
stomach. It causes chemical changes grad
ually to commence among the particles of the j
food*which has previously been eaten, and |
thus facilitates the dissolution which neces- 1
sarily precedes digestion. It is only some |
kinds of cheese, however, which will effect
this purpose. Those are generally consider- j
ed the best in which some kind of cheese
mould has established itself. Hence the
mere eating of a morsel of cheese after din
ner does not necessarily promote digestion.
If too new or of improper quality, it will only j
add to the quantity of food with which the
stomach is already overloaded, and will have [
to await its turn for digestion by the ordinary 1
process.—Chemistry of Com man Life.
INFLUENCE OF CLIMATE ON KIND. 1
For 1800 years the Jewish race has been j
dispersed into different latitudes and climates
and they have preserved themselves most dis
tinct from anv intermixture with the other
races of mankind. There are some Jews
still lingering in the valleys of the Jordan,
having been oppressed by the successive con
querors of Syria for ages—a low race of peo
ple, and described by trustworthy travellers
as being as black as any of the Ethiopian
races. Others of the Jewish people, partici
pating in European civilization, and dwel- j
ling in the northern nations, show instances .
of the light complexion, the blue eyes, and ;
light hair of the Scandinavian families. We j
see then how to account for the differences in 1
color, without having to refer them to origi- i
nal or specific distinctions.—Professor Owen.
CRISIS oTko crisis. !
In Bulwarks sarcastic comedy of‘Money/
Mr. Graves, as he shakes his head at a file of
newspapers, says: “In my days, I have al
ready seen eighteen crisises, six annihilations
of agriculture and commerce, four overthrows
of the ehureh, and three last, final, awful,
and irremediable destructions ot the entire
eenstitution.” _
More persons fall out concerning the right
road to heaven than ever get to the end ot
their journey.

extracted from Herbs and Roots, which have j
been found after years of experience, by the most j

most beneficial in the diseases for which it is re
commended. and hence whilst it is presented to
the public, as an efficacious remedy, it is also
known to be of that character on which reliance
may 1)0 placed astoils safety. In cases of Im
potency. Ha*morrhages. Disordered Sterlity, Mens
truation, or Suppression of the Menses, Fluor

any cause, such as weakness from sickness. ;
where the patient has been confined to bed lor i

MEDICINES in the many complaints to which
Females are subject. It assists nature to brace

TTEALTH RESTORED AND LIF
, H LENGTHENED, BY DR. MORSE
INVIGORATING ELIXIR AND CORDIAL.
For centuries, Medical Science has been ra
sacking the vegetable and mineral kingdoms, i
search of someth Big that should restore the Io
or decaying energies of the nervous and muscuh
systems, without the drawback of subsequei
prostration, which all stimulants, tonics, a?
narcotics hail heretofore entailed. That som
thing has been found. It is a vegetable produ
tion, brought from the sterile deserts ot Arabi
the Stony." by the celebrated Proiessor M. Mors
j well known a* a distinguished member of tf
leading scientific societies of the Old World, an
equally distinguished as a physician, a chemis
and a traveller. The juices of this herb, concei
; trated and combined with other vegetable med
cinal extracts, are now producing results, hit!
crto unheard of, in this or any other country
At first the properties attributed to Protesso
MORSE’S INVIGORATING ELIXIR AM
! CORDIAL were deemed fabulous. The public
I often deceived, could not believe the simple aui
I sublime truths announced by the discoveiei
| But tacts, undeniable facts, attested by witnesse
j of the highest class and character are now trium
j piling over all doubts.
INCREDULITY IS OVERTHROWN,,
by a mass of testimony which is perfectly irre
j sistible.
The Elixir remedies, in all cases, the deplora
hie evilsarUing from a misuse or abu>e ot tin
; \arious organs winch make up the wonderful
i machine called man. It restores to full vigoi
j every delicate function connected with that mys
i terious compound agency of matter and mind
' necessary to the reproduction ot human life.
To persons of feeble muscular frame, or deficient
in vital power, it is recommended a* the only
means of communicating that energy wliich is
, necessary to the proper enjoyment of all the natu
! ral appetites, as well as of the higher mental
attributes. Its lienelirial effects are not confined
to either sex or to any age. The feeble girl, the
| ailing wile, the listless, enervated youth, the
' overworn man of business, the victim of ner
vous depression, the individual sullering from
general debility or from the weakness ot a single
organ, will ail find immediate and permanent
rebel from the use of this incomparable renova
ter. To those who have a predisposition to par
alysis. it will prove a complete and unfailing
safeguard against that terrible malady. There
are many, perhaps, who have so trifled with
their constitutions, that they think themselves be
yond the reach of medicine. Let not even these
despair. The Elixir deals with disease as it ex
ists, without reference to causes, and will not
only remove the disorder itself, but
REBUILD THE BROKEN CONSTITUTION.
Brought from a vast distance, the principal in
gredient of the Elixir can only be produced at a
heavy expense, and the process of manufacture
is also costly. Hence, the price, to be at all re
munerative, must necessarily be higher than that
ofthe trashy, chance-compound nostrums, ot which
the only expense consists in the advertising.
But, it health is indeed a “priceless blessing,"
then is the Invigorating Elixir and Cordial the
cheapest medicine in the known world.
The derangements of the system, leading to
nervous diseases, and the forms of nervous disease
itself, are so numerous, that it would require a
column to enumerate the maladies for which
this preparation is a specific. A few, however,
may be enumerated, viz: neuralgia, tic doloreaux,
headache, incipient paralysis, hysteria, dyspep
sia, palpitation ot the heart, spinal affections,
muscular debility, tremors, flatulence, a pricking
sensation in the flesh, numbness, torpidity of the
liver, mental depression, weakness of the will,
indisposition to move, faintness alter exercise,
broken sleep and terrifying dreams, inability to
remain in one place or position, weakness of the
procreative organs, sexual incompetency, melan
choly, monomania, lluor albus, sinking at the
stomach, female irregularities,a chronic tendency
to miscarriage, emaciation, and all complaints
growing out ol a f ree indulgence of the passions,
and all barrenness, that does not proceed from
organic causes beyond the reach of medicine.
Whenever the organs to be acted upon are free
from malformation or strictnral diseases, it is
averred that Morse’s Invigorating Elixir will re-,
place weakness with strength, incapacity with
efficiency, irregularity with uniform and natural
activity, and this not only without hazard of re
action, but with a happy effect on the general or
ganization. LOT Bear in mind that all maladies,
wherever they begin, finish with the nervous sys
tem, and that the paralyzation of the nerves of
motion and sensation is physical death.—
f iT Bear in mind, also, that for ev ery kind ot
nervous disease, the Elixir and Cordial is the only
reliable preparation known. A GREAT MED
ICINE FOR FEMALES.
The unparalleled effects of this great restora
tive in all complaints incident to females, mark
a new era in the annals ot medicine. Thousands
ot stimulants have been invented—thousands ol
inv igorants concocted—all purporting tube spe
cifics in the various diseases, and derangements,
to which the delicate conformation ol woman
render her liable. The result has heretofore been
uniform. These nostrums have indeed imparted
a momentary v ivacity to the nervous system, a
transient and delusive vigor to the muscles; but
this flash ol relief has been succeeded by a de
pression and prostration greater than before, and
the end lias too often been utterly to paralyze the
recuperative power of the nerves and the vital
organization, and finally to destroy the unhappy
patient. But in MORSE’S INVIGORATING
ELIXIR, is presented as a phenomenon in the
materia inedica hitherto unheard of—a stimulant
without a reaction.
The herb which forms its main ingredient, has
been admitted by all the great medical and phar
maceutical institutions ol Europe, to be in this
respect sui generis. Dr. Morse whose name is
in undisputed authority in science, discovered
the production in Arabia, where his attention
ivas excited by the wonderfully invigorating
'fleets it produced upon the natives. In fact, j
he wonderful power of endurance, the exhaust
ess vigor exhibited by the Arabs ol both sexes,
n their desert pilgrimages, is attributable to the
i»e of this vitalizing herb.
An appeal is made to EVERY WOMAN OF
>ENSE, who suffers from weakness, derange
nent, nervousness, pains in the back, or any
>ther disorder, whether peculiar to her sex, or
:omnion to both sexes—to give the Invigorating
Jordial a trial.
-ET FACTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.
Dear tchat the celebrated and distinguished Dr.
WOOD of Massachusetts, says oj it :
Massachusetts Insane Hospital, )
Worcester, June 1,1848. $
Dear Sir:—It gives me pleasure to intorm you,
hat one ot my patients, while in Boston, procur
d some of your Cordial, which he tells me he
ias taken two weeks, tor which time he has not
•een troubled as he was before. He already
ooksiike anew person, who so short a time
ince looked so pale and thin, and was scarcely
hie to crawl around. I thought it scarcely ]>os
ible tor him ever to regain his full strength and
acuities; his case was an extremely bad one. 1
described the usual medicine used in such cases j
n the Hospital, but they were of no effect. In j
he mean time, my patient had procured some of
our Cordial, which efleeti'd a cure, 1 am satis
ed no other medicine could ha\e done. I shall
ver warmly; recommend it whenever an oppor
unity occurs. The Inventor in my younger
ays I well remember, as being considered one
I the most skihul physicians in the U. States,
ml had heard his Cordial very highly spoken of, :
ut was one of the incredulous as to its merits,
util l was so unexpectedly and satisfactorily !
onvinced to the contrary, it must lie a great j
onsolation to you, to think what a vast amount
I human misery your Cordial is alleviating.
Vith my warmest wishes lor your health, ha|>- j
iness and continued success, I remain, very tru- |
y, yours, H. A. WOOD, M. D.
