over; 8,000 between the ages of 90 and 100; '
85,000 between the ages of 80 and 90: more

years of age; about two-fifths between 20
and 50, and less than one fifth only over 50

teeth with a brush, will remove tartar as ef
fectually as any oilier scientific that can be
applied. Hippocrates, the styled 'Father
of Medicine,' lived to the age of 109 years.

he removed a horn seven inches in length,
measuring its outer border; the other and
shorter border was four inches. The great

Throat and Lung Diseases with nitrate of sil

flesh into use as food, and declares that
thero is no reason why it may not be eaten
like the ox or the sheep. Prof. Win 11.

PERHAM'S GIFT ENTERPRISE.— The Com
mittee appointed by the shareholders in this
affair, to distribute the 400,000 Gilts amongst
the ticket holders, have deferred the distri
bnliou until the 6th of July, on account ol
there remaining unsold some few thousands
of tickets. Mr. -Perliam, ever anxious to
meet the views of bis patrons, offers extraor
dinary inducements to Agents to engage hi
the sals of the remaining tickets, so that
there may be oospore delays, which are un
questionably as vexatious lo him as lo those
who havo purchased tickets in his enter
prise. We commend the reading ol his ad

each and all will lend a helping hand to
bring I lie matter to an early and satisfactory
consummation.
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. •

I beg leave to call the attention of the pub
lic to the following letters from physicians :
" Laboratory, K. Y, May 2, 1855.
"MR. 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. With much repsect, your
obedient servant, CHARLES A. LEAS.

to the Mysteries of Mormonisnt and the
"Spiritual Wile" system, as practised by
Brighton Y'otuig and his associates at Great
Sail Luke City. By a Mormon and his wife,
sec.eders from that singular sect. Beautifully
illustrated.
'This interesting work bids fair to ; run like
wildfire,' coining as it does at a time when
the peculiarities of the Mormon people, and
their defiant, attitude towards our government
are exciting such univer.-gl attention through
out the United States, The hook gives a full
and explicit exposition of the blasphemous
secret ceremonies of Mormonism, the authors
having been personally initiated into the Re
volting Mystery of the Spiritual Wife System
during their residence at Utah. The numer
ous illustrations give spirited representations
of the Mysterious Initiation Rites, of the Tem
ple, and other startling scenes, showing the
Grantl Turk, Bngham Y'oung, at home in his
H.trem—lhe whole forming a book that ought
to be earnestly read and reflected on by ev
