Few of our citizens have any idea of the amount ol
this medicine that is manufactured and sold. Besides
the sales in this country, it is shipped to lite Capadas,
West India Islands, South America, and even to F.u
mpe, in considerable quantities. At the manufactory
they employ a steam engine, besides a large number
of nieir, women and girls, in the preparation ol' die
medicine, making boxes, printing, Ice, and turn out,
ready for shipme nt, over 400 dozen per day, or nearly
8000 bottles. This is uu enormous quantity.
The great sale the medicine has acquired, has in
duced a number of men to get up imitations, and there
is at the present time, other medicines for sale, that
are called " Dr. Townscnd'a Sarraparilla." One in par

"Old Doctor Jacob Townsend's Harsapnnlla," and ap

and thus gain all the advantages resulting from the
popularity of the uame which he has acquired for it,
by years of patient and expensive labors. Dr. 8 P.

of gratitude, for myself and wife, to give utterance
to our sincere and heartfelt emotions.
41 My wife has been perceptibly sinking for some
three years or more, in consequence of her groat an

not express to you the relief it afforded my distressed

learning that the great discovery of M. M. Doao

Competence and Health.
41 LANCASTER, PA., Oct. 24, 1847.
" MY DEAR 8IR: I know you will have the kind
ness to bear with me in encroaching upon your time,
; while I acknowledge (in behalf of myself and wife)
tho obligations wo foel ourselves under to you in hav
ing made known certain matters, contained in your
most invaluable 4 Married Woman's Private Meaical
Companion.' It has been worth lis weight in gold
to me. If I express myself rather warmly, you will
aee that I can not do so too warmly, when I inform
you of the extent to which I have, through it, been
benefited. I will state my situation when I obtained
your book through the merest curiosity I look upon
it as ono of tho most fortunate events of my life. I
had been married some ten years, and was the fnther
of seven children. I was long struggling unceasingly,
i to the end that I might gain a moderate competency,
I but the results of my utmost exertions at the end left
mc about where 1 was at the beginning of each year;
and that only, with tho most stinted economy, suffi
cing with barely the necessaries of life. Finally, this
oonstant effort was beginning to have its effect upon
my health: I felt less capable to endure its continu
ance, while I felt the necessity of perseverance.
" This constant, unceasing struggle on my part was
imperative, in consequence of the prostrated condi
tion of my wife (with occasional intermission) for six
years, much of the time confined to her bed, and of
courso incapable of taking the charge and manage
ment of household affairs. Her condition arose from
causes of which I was ignorant. Oh! what would

How many are suffering from obstruction or irreg
ularities peculiar to the female system, which un
dermine their health, the effects of which they are
ignorant, and for which their delicacy forbids seeking
medical advice! How many suffer from prolapsus
uteri (falling of the womb), or from fluor-albus (weak
ness, debility, Ac., Ac.)! How many are in constant
agony for many months preceding confinement! How
many have difficult if not dangerous deliveries, and
whose lives are jeoparded during auch time, will find
in its pages the means of prevention, amelioration,
and relief!

To those yet unmarried, bat contemplating mar

It is, of course, impracticable to convey more fully
the various subjects treated of, as they are of a na

Their power over the above diseases is
not excelled, if equalled, by any other rep
aration in the United Slates, as the cures
attest, in many cases after skilful physicians
had failed.
These Bitters are worthy the attention of
invalids. Possessing great virtues in the
tectification of diseases of the Liver arid ba
ser glands, exercising the most searching
powers in weakness and aflections of the di
gestive organs, they are, withal, safe, cer
tain and pleasant.
Read and be Convinced.
The Hon. Charles D. Hineline, Editor of
the "Camden Democrat,"the best paper in
West Jersey, says, July 21: —
have seen many flattering notices of this
medicine, and the source from which they
came, induced us to make inquiry respect
ing its merits. From inquiry we were pei
suaded to use it. and must say we found
it specific in its action upon diseases of the
liver and digestive organs, and tho powerful
influence it exerts upon nervous prostration
is really surprising. It calms and stregthens
tho nerves, bringing them into a slate of re
pose, making sleep refreshing.
"If this medicine were more generally
;sed, we are satisfied there would be loss
sickness, as from the stomach, liver and ner
vous system the great majority of real and
imaginary diseases emanate. Have them in
a healthy condition, and yon can bid defi
ance to epidemics generally. This extraor
dinary medicine wo would advise our friends
who are at all indisposed to givo a trial—it
will then recommend itself. It should, in
fact, be in fevery family. No other medi
| cine can produce such evidences of merit."
[From the "Boston Bee."]
Tho editor said, Dec. 22d—
"Dr. lhofland's Celebrated German Hitters
for the cure of Liver Complaint, Jaundice,
Dyspeysia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, is
deservedlv one of the most popular medi
cines of the day. These Bitters haue been
used by thousands, and a friend at our elbow
say 6 he has himself received an effectual
and permanent cure of Liver Complaint
from the use of this remedy. We are con
vinced that, in tho use of these Bitters, tho
patient constantly gains strength and vigor—
a fact worthy of great consideration, i'hey
are pleasant in taste and smell, anil can be
used by persons with the most delicate atom
aclis with safety, under any circumstances.
We are speaking from experience and to the
afflicted we advise their use."
Judge M. M. Noah, a gentleman with
great scientific and and litterary attainments,
said in his "New York Weekly Messenger,"
January 6, 1850.
"Dr Hoofland's German Biltcrs. —Here is
a preparation which the leading presses in
the Lnion appear to be unanimous in re
commending. and tho reason is obvious. It
is made after a prescription furnished by
one ol the most celebrated physicians of
modern times, the late Dr Christopher Wil
helm Hoottand. Professor to the University
of Jena, Private Physician to the King of
Prussia, and one of the greatest medical wri
ters Germany has ever produced. He was
emphatically the enemy of humbug, and
therefore a medicine of which he was the
inventor and endorser may be confidently re
lied on. He specially recommended it in
Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Debility, Ver
tigo, Acidity of the Stomach, Constipation,
and all complaints arising from a disordered
condition of the stomnch, the liver and the
intestines. Nine Philadelphia papers express
their conviction of its excellence, and sev
eral ol the editors speak of its effects from
their own individual experience. Under
these circumstancos, we feel warranted, not
only in calling the attention of our readers
to the present proprietor's (Dr. C. M. Jack
son's) preparation, but in recommending the
j article to all afflicted."
The "Philadelphia Saturday Gazette," the
best ' family newspapei published in the Uni
ted States, the editor says of
"It is seldom that we recommend what
are termed Patent Medicines to the confi
dence and patronage of our readers; and,
therefore, when we recommend Dr. Hoof
land's German Bitters, we wish it to be dis
tinctly understood that we are not speaking
of the nostrums of the day, that are noised
about for a brief period and then forgotten
after they havo done their guilty raceofmis
chif, but of a medicine long established,
universally prized, and which has met the
hearty approval oi tho Faculty itself."
Evidunce upon evidence has boon re
ceived (like the foregoing) from all sections
of the Union, the last three years, and the
iircsgut Uiliiaety favor, IS, that thoro w
morn of it used in tne pfaCuCD of liio regu

upon the stomach and liver—it is preferable
to calonlel in all bilious diseases —ihe effect is
immediate. They can be administered to

Hunterdon County, N. J,
Dr. 8. A Pearson, Dear Sir—About a year a
go I became severely afflicted with a pain itr my
hrcat and side, an extremely bad cough, spilling of
blood, debility, night sweats, and other symptoms
of confirmed consumption. I became so much re
duced that I was unable to attend to my ordinary
business. I made applicatiorr to a physician, who
examined my chest, and gave it as his decided o
pinion that nry lungs were seriously affected. I
then app.icd to another, who was of the eamc o
pinion, and after having prescribed advised me to
return to my friends.
Previous to this 1 had for a long limo been la
boring under nil the symptoms usuully found with
persons laboring under disease of ihe lurgs, and
it was thought by all who knew mo that I was fast
wearing away witb doroy.
At the time I applied to the physicians f was
laboring under a severe attack of spitting Mood,
with pain in my breast and side. Their prescrip
tions failed to relieve the pain, and all their skill
could not arrest the discharge of blood from my
lungs. This being my condition, I was induced
to uiakc a trial of your valuable Pulmonic Eipcc
orant, oy the use or which I was immediately re
lieved of all those unpleasant symptoms, and am
now so far restored to hoollh, that i am able to
attend to all my ordinary business, and expose
myself as much as it is pruJcnt for any one to do.
I would therefore confidcrtly recommend every
person who is laboring under disease of tho lungs
and breast, or wire are afflicted with colda or with
cougbs, to mike trial of your most valuable prep
aration- I would further add that after having
made use of your Expectorant for a few weeks, i
becamd so flesy that persona with whom i was
acquainted hardly knew me. t still remain in good
health at this time, March, 1846.
