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 stnte ol health, called the Gastric
Juice. This fluid is the Great solvent of the
Food, the Purifying, Preserving, and Stimula
j ting Agent of the stomach and intonslines.
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, hall
dead, or injured stomach produces no good
Gastric Juice, and hence the disease, dis
ressand debility which ensue. |
PEPSIN AXD RENNET. —Pepsin is the cine
element, or great Digesting Principle of the
Gastric Juice. It is found in great abun
dance in the solid parts of the human stom
ach after derth, and sometimes causes the
! stomach to digest itself, or eat hscjf up. It
is also found fin the stomach of animals, as
the ox, calf, &e. It is the material used by
farmers in making cheese, called Kennel,
the effect of which has long been the spe
rial wonder of the dairy. I lie curdling of
milk is the fust process of digestion. Ren
net possesses astonishing power. The stom
ach of a calf will-curdle nearly one thou
sand limes its own weight of milk. Paro
Liebig states that, 'One part of Pepsin dis
solved in sixty thousand parts of water, wil
digest meat and other food." Diseased
stomnchs produce no good Gastric Juice
Rennet or Pepsin. To 6liow that this want
may be periectly supplied, we quote the
BARON LIEBIG, in Lis celebrated work 011
nimal Chemistry, says ; "All Artificial Di
eslive Fluid analago us to the Gastric Juice,
may be readily prepared from the micous
gmembrane of the stomach of die Call,
which various articles of food, as meat and
eggsJ will be softened, changed, and diges
ted, just in the same manner as they would
be in the human stomach."
Dr. l'eceira, in his famons treatise on
"Food and Diet," published by Fowlers &
Wells, New York, page 35. states the same
great fact, and describes the method of prep
aration. There aro few higher authorities
than Dr. Pereira.
Dr Combe, in ,Ins valuable writings on
he "Physiology of Digestion," observe
that "a diminution of the due quantity 0
the Gastric Juice is a prominent and all-pre
tailing cause of Dyspepsia;" and lie state,
that "a distinguished professor of medicine
in London, who was severely afflicted wilt
this complaint, finding every thing else to
fail, had recourse to the Gastric Juice, ob
taiued from the stomach of living animals
which proved completely successful,"
Dr. Graham, author of tho famous work
On "Vegetable Diet," says ; "it is a remar
kable fact in physiology, that tho stomachs
of animals, macerated in water, impart to
the fluid the properly of dissolving various
articles of food, and of effecting a kind ol
artificial digestion of them in 110 wise dif
ferent from the natural digestive process."
Dr..Simon's great work, the "Chemistry
of Man," (Lea & Blanchard, Phila., 1840,
pp. 321-2): "The discovery of PEPSIN
fivmsa new era in tho 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
Professor Dunglison of the Jefferson Col
lege, Philadelphia, in his great work on Hu
man Physiology, devotes more than fifty
pages to 011 examination of this subject.
His experiments with Dr Beaumont, 011 the
Gastric Juice, obtained from the living hu
man stomach and from animals are well
known. "In all cases," he says, "digestion
occurred as perfectly in tho artificial as the
natural digestions."
As a DYSPEPSIA CURER, Dr Houghton's
preparation of Pepsin has produced the

from the very jaws of the dostioyer. through the j

foi Scrofula or King's Evil, Tetter, Erysipelas,
Old Sores and Ulcers, Mercurial Diseases, and all !
other aflestions, cutaneous or otherwise, arising !
from impurities of the blood.
In the extraordinary cure of Mr. Brooks, poo- |
pie who visit bim, hold up their hands in as
tonishment, that AXY medicine could have ar- |
rested HIS disease—then go a way resolved to re- ;
commend Dr Cullen's Indian Vegetable Pana
cea to every one tbey hear of who has need of a
purifying medicine.
Willi CbrfctiSVtt Sands—her cure of Scrof- j
ulous sore throat was quite as extraordinary us
Mr, lironks', when we reded that from the dis
case her tea or coffee would frequently pase out t
of her ears, when attempting lo drink, [See j
her certificate.]
The people arc beginning to understand, too '
that tho various Syrups of Sarraparilla are little j
better than molasses, and that it is madness to j
throw away money on articles which, under the .
most favorable oircumstancca, do not produce
any impression on the system until sevoral gal
ena have been swallowed. One bottle of Dr. I
Cullen's Panacea seldom fails to produce con
viction in lire winds of patients that a radical
core is certain.
Thus hope, [so necessary, an illy to medi-I
cine.] springs up at the onleet, and tho patient [
is cured before any olber preparation could bavo i
made the slightest impression upon the disease ! ,
In fact, the twelve ouncedroUlae of Dr. Cul
len's Panacea, compared with tho pint and quart
bottles of oilier purifiers, are valuuble about in ,
the proportion of gold to copper. Those who i
woule prefer n penny to a half eagle, on account
of ita size, would rnukc a pour selection to sa
the least.
Sarsaparilla a good purifier! Dr. Cullen's
Panacea contains its oxtract in its most concen
trated form. Added to this are other extracts,
more active and powerful, and which effect in
combination witli tbo Barsaparrlla, what the lat
ter article, or combined with the most powcrfu
poisons, cannot alone accomplish.
It has curod where everything else had failed
and this in a multitude of cases—not in Europe
or in the moon, (where so many greet cures
have been performed,) but in Philadelphia and
other pafls of tho union. And be it distinctly
understood that we do not obtain our extracts by

W The groat popularity of Worsdelt's
Vegetable Pills, is attributed to the just mer
it which they really possess. They have
been quietly gaining the fame they now
have, by the force of their own virtues.
The means usually employed to give eclat
to now remedies have not been adopted by
the proprietors. They have been contont to
let their medicine speak foi itself. It is now
doing it in every section of the country.
