TO THE CITIZENS OF PENNSYLVANIA. SCHIEDAII AROMATIC SCHNAPPS. 1 beg leave to call the attention of the citi zens of Pennsylvania to the above article, manufactured by myself exclusively, at my Factory in Schiedam, in Holland, expressly for medicinal purposes. It is made from the best Barley that can be selected in Europe and the essence of an ar omatic Italian berry, of acknowledged and extraordinary medicinal ■ properties; and it has long since acquired a higher reputation, ooth iu Europe and America, than any other dielic bevelage. lit Gravel, Gout, and Rheumatism; in Ob structions of the Bladder nnd Kidneys, and Debility of the Urinary Functions, its. ef fects are prompt, decided, and invariably re liable. And it is not only a Remedy for these maladies, but, in all cases iu which they are produced by Drinking Bad Water, which is, almost universally, the cause of them, it op erates as a Sure Preventive. The distressing effect upon tho Stomach, Bowels, and Bladder, to travelers, new resi dents, and all persons unaccustomed to them produced by the waters of nearly all our great inland rivers like the Ohio, Mississippi and Alabama, from the large quantity of decay ed I cgetable matter contained in tbem, iu a stale of solution, is well known ; as is also that of the waters of limestone regions, in producing Gravel, Calculi, anil Stone in the Bladder. The AROMATIC SCHIEDAM SCHNAPPS is an absoluto corrective of all these injurious properties of bad water, and consequently prevents the disease which they occasion. It is also found lo be a cure and preventive of Fever and Ague, a com plaint caused by the conjoin; effects ol vege table malaria in the atmosphere, and vegeta ble pnirescenses in the waters of those dis tricts ill which it 'principally prevails The Aromatic Schiedam fSyhnapps is consequent ly til great demand by persons travelling, or about lo settle in those parts of the country" especially; as well as by many in every community where it has become known on account of its various other remedial proper lies. More than three thousand physicians, among whom aro numbered the greatest names belonging to the faculty of medicine in this couiTlry, have certified, over their own to the valuable medicinal proper ties of such an article, as the severest tests haveproved theFchiedum ArGmatic Schnapps 10 be, and have accepted it as a most desira ble addition to the materia meihca. • Pill up in quart and pint bottles, enveloped ' in yellow paper with my name on the bot tle, cork and seal.

UPDOLFIIO WOLFE— Dear Sir: lean not speak to highly of the purity of youi Schi eJam Schnapps. It is decidedly superior lo anything of the kind in market. It is per fectly fiee from the admixture ol fusil oil, or of any of those arnyltc compounds which produce such a mischievous and irreparable effect upon the constitution, and which very few samples of alcoholic distilled liquors are without—most ol them being largely* impreg nated with it. I have nersnnalfy inspected the various pincess of distillation practiced at Schiedam, and know that nnnsual care is taken lo separate the noxious elements from the pure alcohol, and your Schnapps is a striking proof of its success. As a medici nal agent for chronic and rer.al affections, 1 have successfully prescribed it, and recom mend it as an agreeable cordial and harm less stimulant, and shall continue to do so ; as well as to use it as a source of pure alco hol for chemical investigations and experi ments. Yours obedient, ISAIAH DECK. Consulting Analytical Chemist'' Dr. Charles A. Leas, Commissioner of Heulth, Baltimore, writes as follows in rela tion to the value of' Schnapps as a remedy in chronic catarrhal complaiuts, be. The letter is dated July 27, 1853: " 1 take great pleasure in bearing highly creditable testimony to its efficacy as a rem edial agent in the diseases for which you rec ommend it. Having a natural tendency to iho mocous surfaces, with a slight degree of stimulation, 1 regard it as one of the most important remedies in chronic catarrhal af fections, particularly Inose of the geriito uri nary apparatus.
