THE GAZETTE.
SATURDAY MORNING, Sift r. 2«. 1837.
SELECTIONi? FROM PUNCH.
Extraordinary l#ap.—All the gymnastic
periormaoees uf the circus we have over read
of, are outdone by the achievement a young
lieutenant, mentioned in the Report on I ui
chase in the Army—who leapt over the heads
oi seventeen officer*!
Remark by a disgusting Old Batchelor.—
There is one art whiob the use of these un
manageable Crinolines is likely to teach the
women of Eugland, and that is—Petticoat
Government.
Dirt Cheap.—It is computed that the ef |
fective drainage of London would cost five
millions. What are five millions, to be ex-;
pended on drainage purposes, to the many
millionaires of London who have drained the
world of millions?
Domestic l^ultry.—“Allow me," said Ar
thur, looking pleadingly at Angelica, the !
other moroiug at breakfast, “allow me to
send you a little duck. Unless," he timidly
added in a half whisper, “that is like sending
coals to Newcastle." The little duck aoswei
ed that he was a great goose, but did not
alt »*ether look as if she tuought so.
The Order of Release.-"Wbat a shame
that so many millions should be spent every .
year upon these Napoleon fetes. Yes; but ,
tneu you must take into cousideratiou tho
number of persons that are pardoned on
these occasions. At the last Napoleon fete
i,o less than 1,142 prisoners and exiles re
ceived their pardons!" “Ah! 1 see; you
would have me consider the extravagance as
a pardonable offence!” [The above was over
beard, between two caps of coffee, at the Cafe
Rtfonde, in the Palais Royal.]
The Dican.—The place where the Sultan's
pipe is regularly put out by tbe European
Powers.
Dt cot ion to One* s Doctors.—The amiable
hoime * pat hist, Lord Robert Grosvenor, is
made a peer. He might have been ao Earl,
. . • k . t . k . . I IV I_ _
but ne supuiaieu luai uie ooiueco,
stuck oo the spikes of an Karl’s coronet,
should be reduced to Globules. The heralds
wou'd not stand this, so he is only Baron.
Malicious.—Flora.—“Can you still seethe
steamer, Lucy, deal?"
Lucy.—“Oh yes, quite plainly!"
Flora.—“And dear, dear William, too?"
Lucy.—“Oh yes!"
Flora.—“Does he seem unhappy, now he is
away from me?"
Lucy.—“Evidently, I should say, dear; for
he is smoking a cigar, and drinking some
thing out of a tumbler to cheer him, poor
fellow!"
How to Calculate the Height of the Season
at the Seaside.—When you have to wait an
hour for a bathing-machine: when the last
new novel is bespoken ten deep; when don
keys are scarce, and city clerks are plentiful;
when you have to walk your soles off to get a
London morning paper; when you meet with
an organ-griuder, or a German band, in al
most every street; when the Dispensary Ball
is given; when chairs are fought for on the
sands when you see more butf slippers in
the corridors outside the bed-room doors of
hotels than Wellington boots; when one is
obliged to send up to town for a piece of sal
mon; when ice commands a fabulous price;
when lierr Jonesi, “from the Nobilities’ Con
certs,’’ gives a Grand Musical festival at the
Town Hall; when landladies sleep in the
kitchen; when “One Bed to Let" in a dirty
by lane is run after with avidity; when the
Sally lun man makes bis tintionabular per
ambulations ^regularly every evening, and
wakes up dozing papas with thejingle of hie
muffin-bell and doggerel rhymes; when the
“Third Robber" from Saddler’s Wells shioes
at the little barn of a theatre with all the ef
fulgence of a star from Drury Lane; when
Goes Flounders, the comic singer from
Evan’s (more euphoniously christened “the
Son of Mom us") and Mrs. Sally flounders
(“the Daughter of Momus") “Keep a little
Farm" every night at Sacker and Fullett’a
Library, on the Grand Parade; and, lastly, j
when prices get so high that they cannot
possibly get any higher; then you may be
sure that it is the Height of the Season at the
Seaside! _

ONE DOLLAR WILL BUY ONE OF THE
best Purgative and Liver Medicines now
before the public, namely: DR. SANFORD’S
LNVIGORATOR, OR LIVER REMEDY,that
acts as a Cathartic, easier, milder, and more
effectual than any other medicine known. It is
not only a Cathartic, but a Liver remedy, acting
first on the Liver to eject its morbid matter,
Then on the stomach and bowels to carry off that
matter, thus accomplishing two purposes effec
tually, without any of the painful feelings ex
perienced in the operations of most Cathartics.
It strengthens the system at the same time that
it purges it. and when taken daily in moderate
doses will strengthen and build it up with unu
sual rapidity.
DR SANFORD’S INVIGORATOR is com
pounded entirely lrom new articles of medicine,
namely, Gums.
Some idea of the strength of these gums may
be formed when it is known that one bottle of
the lnvigorator contains as much strength as one
hundred doses of Calomel, without any of its
deleterious effects.
Though possessing rare medicinal powers,
these Gums have been but little known to physi
cians, and never used in their prescriptions un
til used in the lorrr. of the lnvigorator, which
met with such unprecedented success as to in
duce the proprietor to offer it as a lamil) medi
cine. tried and known in its effects. It has rare
ly ever failed to cure Liver Complaints in their
worst forms. ,
INDIGESTION being caused by a deranged
Liver iscured when the Liver is excited to action
JAUNDICE is caused by an improper action
of the Liver, ami as a prooi that the invigorator
relieves this disease, let any one troubled with
Jaundice take tht Invigorator regularly one
| week, and their s«in will begin to assume its on
! ginal color. , ,
I COST1VENKSS can be permanently cuied by
j the Invigorator. Take it in small doses on re
! tiring, aud it assists nature in her operations.
By gradually diminishing the dose, the bow els
! are left in a healthy and active state, and work
' as regularly as clock work.
j SICK HEADACHE is very soon relieved by
i taking a double dose ot the Invigorator, which
! corrects all acidity and sournessot the stomach.
For an over loaded stomach it has no equal, as
; it relieves all oppressive or uneasy teeling alter
| eating heartily. For a family medicine gene
! rally, all who use it speak in the highest terms
l DR. SANFORD’S INVIGORATOR came to
us recommended as a cure for uiver Complaints,
and all diseases arising irom a Diseased Liver.
| The testimonials of so many ot our I hysicians
1 in its favor, induced us to try it, and now con
; viction is certain that it is one of the greatest
j blessings ever given to Dyspeptics, tor it made
i a complete cure belore the first bottle w as taken
! and now we can eat anything edible without
j trouble, while belore nothing but the lightest
I tood would digest, and otten that gave pain.—
! Row* what we want to say to all our readers is,
I if Liver Complaint or Dyspepsia trouble you,
j do not fail to try this the greatest lemedy in the
world.—State $ act. ...
We take infinite pleasure in recommending this
medicine as a preventive for Fever and Agm,
Chill Fever, and all Fevers ol a BiLiots!
It operates with certainty, and thousands are
willing to testily to its wondei lul virtues.
There has never been tried in our Unrulj a
I remedy which has met with such unbounded
tin cure of diseases incident to chil
dre'n as PR SANFORD* INVIGORATOR;
| nor i’s it alone lor diseases ol children that we
use it; tor it acts as a Cathartic so mildly rug
gently and seems to renovate the sjstem so
thoroughly that we think we are w^m'edn
to ail in advising them, when they need medt
cine to try this remedy. There are cases tha
have come under our notice w Here great ene
has been received m diseases ot the Li\er,
Stomach, and Bowels, where all other remedies
failed to giv« relief. It has become so useful«
our family that we will not be without it

We wish all who are sick and deb litsded to

w ho are not Unedited by its use we should I k

first person who has used a bott o »
toi without receiving benefit, lor ther ■
