A SPLENDID ASSORTMENT of Ladies Gaiters and Slippers just manufactured and to: rale by WARREN Rt'SUEL. ANOTHER SCIENTIFIC WONDER a> is IP s n sy 8 THE TRUE DIGESTIVE FLUID, OR 72 £ S2 a A Great Dyspepsia curer, Preparer! from RF.NNET, or the fourth Stomach of the Ox, after directions of Barmi Liebig, the great Physiological Chemist, by J. S. Houghton, M. D., No. 11, North Eighth Street, l'hila delphia, Pa. This is a truly wonderful remedy for Indi geslion, Dyspepsia, Jaudioe, Liver Com plaint, Constipation,-and Debility, Curing after Nature's own method, by Nature's own agent, the Gastric Juice. PS" Half a spoonful of this Fluid, infused in water, will digest or dissolve, Five Pounds of Roast Beef in about two hours, out of the stomach. DIGESTION. Digestion is Chiefly performed in the stomach by the aid of a fluid which freely exudes from the inner coat of that organ, when in a state ot health, called the Gastric Juice. This fluid is the Great solvent of the Food, the Purifying, Preserving, and Stimula ting Agent of the stomach and intenslines. Without it there will be no digestion,—no conversion of food into blood, and no nu trition of the body; but rather a foul, torpid, painful, and destructive condition of the whole digestive apparatus. A weak, half dead, or injured stomach produces 110 good Gastric Juice, and hence the disease, dis ircssatid debility which ensue. PEPSIN AND RENNET. —Pepsin is the chief element, or groat Digesting Principle of the Gastric Juice. It is found in great abun dance 111 the solid parts of the human stom ach after de ilh, and sometimes causes the stomach to digest itself, or eat itself up. It is also found in the stomach of animals, as lhe ox, calf, &c. It is the material used by farmers in makirg cheese, called Rennet, the effect of which has long been the spe cial wonder of the dairy. The curdliug of milk is the first process of digestion. Ren net possesses astonishing power. The stom ach of a calf will curdle nearly one thou sand times its own weight of milk. Baron Liebig states that, 'One part of Pepsin dis solved in sixty thousand parts of water, will digest meat and other food." Diseased stomachs produce no good Gastric Juice Rennet or Pepsin. To show that this want may be perlectly supplied, we quota the following SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE! BARON LIEWG, in Lis celebrated work on Animal Chemistry, says : "An Artificial Di gestive Fluid analagou" to the Gastric Juice, may be readily prepared from the micous membrane of the stomach of the Call, in which various articles of food, aB meat and eggs" will be softened, changed, and diges ted, Just in the same manner as they would be in lhe human stomach." Dr. Pereira, in his famous treatise on "Food and Diet," published by Fowlers A Wells, New York, page 35. states the same great fact, and describes the method of prep aration. There are few higher authorities than Dr. Pereira. Dr Combe, in his valuable writings on the "Physiology of Digestion," observes that "a diminution of the due quantity of the Gastric Juice is a prominent and all pre vailing cause of Dyspepsia;" and he states that "a distinguished professor of medicine in London, who was severely afflicted with this complaint, finding every thine "I'se to fail, had recourse to the Oasiric Juice, ob tained from the stomach of living animals which proved completely succ.isslul." ' Dr- Grabf-ii, author of the famous works "'v ege'.gbie Diet," says: "it is a remar kable tact in physiology, that the stomachs of animals, macerated in water, impart to the fluid the properly of dissolving various articles of food, and of effecting a kind of artificial digestion of them in no wise dif ferent from the natural digestive process." Dr. Simon's great work, the "Chemistry of Man," (Lea & Blanrhard, Phila., 1846, pp. 321-2): "The discovery of PEPSIN fo ms a new era in the chemical history of Di gestion. From recent experiments we know that food is dissolved as rapidly in an artificial digestive fluid, prepared from Pep sin, as it is in the natural Gastric Juice it self." Professor Dunglison of the Jefferson Col lege, Philadelphia, in'his great work on Hu man Physiology, devotes more than fifty pages to an examination of this subject. His experiments with Dr Beaumont, on the Gastric Jnice, obtained from tho living hu man stomach and from animals are well known. "In all cases," he says, "digestion occurred as perfectly in the artificial as the natural digestions." As a DYSPEPSIA CURER, Dr Houghton's preparation of Pepsin lias produced the most marvellous envois, curing eases of De bility, Emaciation, Nervous Decline, and dispeptic Consumption, supposed to bo on tho very verge ol the grave. It is imposs ble to give the details of cases in the limit of this advertisement—but authenticate certificates have been of more than two hun dred Remarkable Cures, in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston alone. These were nearly all desperate cases, and the cures were not only rapid and wonderful, but per manent. It is a great Nervous Antidote, and par ticularly useful for tendency to billious dis order, Liver Complaint, Fever and Ague, or badly treated Fever anil Ague, and tho evil effects of Quinine, Mercury, and other drugs upon the Digestive organs, after a long sick ness. Also, for excess in eating, and the too free use of ardent spirits. It almost rec onciles Health with Intemperance. Ou> STOMACH COMPLAINTS. —There is no form of Old Stomach Complaints which it does not seem to reach and removo at once. No matter how bad they may be, it gives Instant Belief I A single dose removes all the unpleasant symptoms, and it only needs to bo repeated, for a short time, to make these good effects permanent.

Their power over tho above diseases is not excelled, if equalled, by any other rep aration in the United States, as the cures attest, in many cases after skilful physicians had failed, These Bitters are worthy tho attention of invalids. Possessing great virtues in the rectification of diseases of the Liver and 1 la ser glands, exercising the most searching powers in weakness and affections of the di gestive organs, they are, withal, safe, cer iain and pleasant. Read and he Convinced. The Hon. Charles D. Hineliue, Editor of the "Catnden Democrat," the best paper in West Jersey, says, July 21: — "HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS." —'We 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 per suaded to use it, and must say we found it specific in its action upon diseases of the liver and digestive organs, and the powerful influence it exerts upon nervous prostration is really surprising. It calms and stregihens tho nerves, bringing them into a state ol re pose, making sleep refreshing. [From 'he "Boston Bee. '] The editor said, Dec. 22d— 'Dr. Hoofland's Celebrated German Bitters 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 have been used by thousands, and a friend at our elbow says he lias himself received an effectual and permanent cure of Liver Complaint from the use of this remedy. We are con vinced that, in the use of these Bitlers, the pai! p 9t constantly £iiis strength and vigor— a fact worthy of great consideration. They are pleasant in tnsfe and smell, and can be j used by persons with the most delicate stom achs with safety, under any circumstances. We are speaking from experience audio 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 IlooJlaneTs German Bitters. —Hero is a preparation which the leading presses in the Union appear to be unanimous in re commending, and the reason is obvious. It is made after a prescription furnished by one o: the most celobraled physicians of modern times, the late Dr Christopher Wil helm Hoofland, Professor to the Univeisity of Jena, Private Physician to the King of Prussia, and one of the greatest medical wri ters Germany has ever produced. He was emphaticaßy .the enemy of humbug, and the.efore a medicine of which lie was the inventor and endorser may be confidently le licd on. lie 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 stomach, the liver and the intestines. Nine Philadelphia papers express their conviction of its excellence, and sev eral ot the editors speak of its effects from their own individual experience. Under these circumstances, we (eel 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 article to all afflicted." MORE EVIDENCE. The "Philadelphia Saturday Gazette," the best family newspnpet published in the Uni t ed Slates, the editor says of DR. HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS. "It is seldom that we recommend what are termed Patent Medicines to tho confi dence and patronage of our readers: and, therefore, when wo recommend Dr. Hoof land's German Bitters, we wish it to bo dis linctly understood It at we are not speaking of the nostrums of the day, that are noised about for a brief period ami then forgotten after they hare done their guilty race of mis chif, but of a medicine long established, universally prized, and which has met the hearty appro?*' 0' the Faculty itself." Evidence upou e\ld? l,r .e has been rc [ ccived (like the foregoing) from all sections ol the Union, the last three yeai, and the strongest testimony in its favor, is, that there is more of it used in tho practice of the regu lor Physicians of Philadelphia than all other nostrums combined, a fact that can easily be established, and fully proving that a sci entific. preparation will meet with their qur> ct approval when presented even in this form. That this medicine will cure Liver Com plaint and Dyspepsia, no one can doubt, af ter using it as directed. It acts specifically upon the stomach and liver—it is preferable to calomel in all bilious diseases —the effect is immediate. They can ha administrued to FEMALE or INFANT with safety and reliuble benefit, at any time. BEWARE OF COUNTERFEITS.
