DER SAFES TRIUMPHANT, as they al
ways are when put to the test.
Philadelphia, Dec. 1 5th, 1854.
Messrs. Evans te Watson, No. 26 south
Fourth Street, Philadelphia.—Gentlemen:—
We take pleasure in recommending your
Salnmander Sales to merchants and others
in want of a secure means of preserving
their books, papers, &0., from fire, as the
one we purchased from you about seven
months since has preserved our books, pa
pers, and cash in as good condition as they
ware when put into it, before the great fire
uf this morning, which destroyed the entire
block of buildings corner of Chestnut and
Fifth Streets. The above Safe was in use
in our office, on tbe second floor of our build
ing, from which place it fell into the cellar,
and remained there until the fire was out
The safe was then removed, and oppened in
the presence ol at least 1000 persons, who
witnessed the good condition ol the contents.
Will you please have the Safe and locks re
paired, as we intend to put it in use again,
having perfect confidence in its fire proof
qualities. Yours, respectfully,
LACEY & PHILLIPS.
Evans & Watson take pleasure in referring
to the following, among the many hundreds,
who have their Sales in use:—U. S. Mint,
Philadelphia; Farmers & Mechanics' Bank,
Philadelphia; Samuel Allen, Esq. High Sher
iff, Philadelphia; John N. Henderson, City
Controller; Caleb Cope & Co., No. 183 Mar

A large assortment of the above Safes al
ways on hand [warranted to stand at least
10 per cent, more fire than any Herring's

Iron Doors, and Iron Sash, for making fire

TONICS WON'T DHL
rpHEY never did do more than give tempo
*- rary relief and they never will. It is be
cause they don't touch the cause of the dis
ease. The cause of all ague and hillidus dis
eases is the atmospheric poison called Mias
ma or Malaria. Neutralize this poison by
its
NATURAL ANTIDOTE.
and all diseases caused by it
once. Rhodes' Fever and Ague Cure is this
Antidote to Malaria, and moreover it is a
perfectly harmless medicimJr The certificate
oL the celebrated chemi.-i, J. R. Chilton of
N2w York, to this effctfi, is attached to every
Uoltle ; therefore if U does no good it can do
no.biam.
This is more than can be said of Quinine,
Arsenic, or any tonic in existence, as their
" ,8 ~?, r . u .7?" ns 10 ,t)e consthtyran and brings
on DUMB AGUE, which never allows a per
son 10 feel perfectly well for a single moment.
In illustration of these truths J annex some
extracts from a letter just received from a
Physician :
Georgetown, Ohio, March 17, '56.
JAS. A. RHODES, Esq.— Dear Sir: Yours of
2d inst. is at hand. The Core arrived late
last year and the difficulty in getting any one
to try it was greatly increased from the fact
thai u remedy had been introduced which
was growing in favor with the public, as be
ing better than using Quinine, —not knowing
1 presume thnt ihe remedy they needed 10
escape taking Quinine, contained the DRUG
ITSELF!
This remedy, (known as "Smith's Tonic,")
would invariably BREAK an ngue, but it did
not CURE it, and it would ofien return with
renewed vigor. The one circumstance I
deemed in your favor, if I could institute a
tesl comparison between it and your CURE.
The following is the result:
Three persons look your "Cure," all of
which were esses of "Quotidian Intermit
tent Fever," of many weeks standing. They
had tried Quinine, and other remedies, occa
sionally missing a chill, but it was, (as in all
such cases.; slowly wearing them out, and
laying the inundation of other and severer
maladies. I did sucreed in effecting a radi
cal cure of all three of these cases with your
remedy, and they ha've not had a chill since.
In all three of these cases Ihe "Smith's Ton
ic" had been used, and would, us before sta
ted, break lite chili, but after a period or two
had elapsed it would return.
1 think there will he no difficulty now in
giving to your "Cure" the vantage ground of
any other remedy now in use herd. &c & c
WILLIAM BUCKNER, M. D.'
RHODES' FEVER and AGUE or
Antidote to Malarta, the only harmless reme
dv in existence, is equally certain as a PRE
VENTIVE, as a "CURE." Take n then
you leel the chill coming on, and vou will
never have a single one.

THB Author of the above volume is a gradu
ate of one or the first medical schoohi ii< the
United States, and having devoted a quarter of
a century to the study and treatment of Syphilis
and kindred disorder- as a speciality, he has
become possessed of most invalusble informa
tion in regard to the same, and is able to com
pass into vade mecum compass the very quint
essence of medical science on this important
subject; as the result of the experience of the
1 most eminent physiciau in Europe and Amer
ica is thorouzhly demonstrated in his own
| highly successful practice in the treatment of
\ secret diseases in many thousands of cares in
| the City of Philadelphia nlone.
The iracticcof Dr. Hunter has long boen,
and still is literally unbounded, but at the ear
nest solicitation of numerous persons, he has
been induced to extend the sphere of his pro
fessional usefulness to the Community at large,
through the medium of his "Mcdi :a | Manual
Hand-Book for tbo Afflic'cd.''
1 It is a volume that should be in the hand of
every family ill the land, whether used as a
preventive of secret vice, or as a guide for the
alleviation of one of the most awful and de
structive scourges ever visited upon mankind
(or the sins of sensuality and impurity of every
kl <l.
ft is a volume that hog received the unquali
fied recommendation of the first physicians in
the land, while many clergymen, fathers, moth
ers, | hilunthropists and humanitarians, have
most freely extended its circulation in all quar
ters where its powerful teachings woulJ be like
ly to be instrumental in the moral purification
and phvet.-al heeling of multitudei of our peo
ple, among the young, volatile and indiscreet,
otherwise the pride and flower of the nation.
The authoi argues particularly, most strongly
against every species of self-defilcmen', and
warns parents and guardians, in sea.thing
terms, to guard the young of both sexes from
the terrible consequences concomitant of their
ignorance of phy'ologicol laws and sexual imd
purities and irregularities, whether exhihite
ry precocious development or arising flora the
viscious and corrupting examples of their school,
metes or otheiwise. To those who have bee i
already ensnared to the "paths that take hold
on hell,'' a clear and explicit way is .howii try
whichlbey may secure a return of sound health
and a regeuoratiun of the soul from its terrible
pollution.
It is well known that thousands of victims
are annually sacrifice 1 at the shrine of Quack
ery—especially those suffering from Vtnereal or
Syphilitic diseases—Strictures, Seminal Weak
ness, Nervous Debility, and the numerous mal
adies which spring directly or less romotely
from tilt) indulgence of carnal passions and se
cret viol tlions of Nature.

considered that about 100,000 persons die annu

large majority being the victims of the voluput

to the Scriptural enunciation, that the ains of
the parents are visited upon the children, even to

PHILADELPHIA MEQICAL HOUSE—
Established 20 years ago by Dr. X INK KLIN,
corner of Third and Union streets, between
Spruce and Pine, Philadelphia, Pa.
INVALIDS, ;' " T " '
Are apprised that Dr. KINKELIN confines
his practice to a particular branch of medi
cine, which engages his individual attention.
He cantions the unfortunate against the a
buse of mercury; thousands are annoufly
mercurialized out of life. Becent affections
I are piomptly extinguished.
TWENTY YEARS'EXPERIENCE
In the treatment of a class of diseases hith
erto neglected and imperfectly understood,
has enabled Dr. KINKELIN, Author of m
work on Self Preservation, to prove bat nine
tenths of the canses of nervous debility, lo
cal and constitutional weakness, mental and *-
physical suffering, tire traceable to certain
habits, forming the most secret yet deadly
and lata! springs of domestic misery and
premature mortality.
TAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE,
There is an evil habit sometimes indulged
in by boys, in solitude, and which, if not re
formed iu due time, not only begets serious
obstacles to matrimonial happiness,but gives A*
rise to a series of jprotracted,
devastating afflie|ions. Petjr_| mxm who
give way to this pernicious practice ate a
ware ol the consequences, until they find
the nervous system shattered, feel strange
and tfttaccouolable leslings, and vague fears
in the mind.
The unfortunate thus affected becomes fee
ble, is unable to labor with accustomed vig
or, or to apply his mind tn study: his step is
tardy and weak, he is dull, irresolute, and
engages in his sport with less energy than
usual.
II he emancii ate himself before the prac
tice has done its worst, and enter matrimony
his marriage is unfrniifnl, and his sense leils
him that this is caused by his early follies.
These are considerations which should awa
ken the attention of those similarly situated
MARRIAGE
Requires the fulfillment of several conditions
in order that it may be really the cause of
mutual happiness. Could the veil which
covers the origin of domestic wretchedness
be raised, and its true source i i every in
stance disclosed—in how many could it be
traced to physical disqualifications and their
attendant disappointments! Apply then while ,-v
it is yet time, in order to have your unstrung
and relaxed organization rebraced, revivified —Ha
and strengthened.
REMEMBER.
Ho who places himseir under Dr. Kiiikelin'* .
treatment may religiously confide In his hon
or as a gcnleman, and rely upon Ihe assur
ance, that Ihe secrets of Dr. K's patients will
never be disclosed.
Young man—lei no false modesty deter
you from making your case Known to one
who, from education and respectability cun
befriend you.
Too many think they will conceal the so- -
cret in their own hearts, and cure themselves.
Alas ! how often is this a fatal delusion, and 1
how many a promising young man, who i
might have behn an ornament to society, has
faded from the earth.
Strictures of the urethra arc rapidly re
moved by the application of a new thera
peutical agent, used only by Dr. K. Weak
ness and Constitutional Debility nromntlv
oureil, and fntt vigor restored.

JgSIHSVk HERRING'S
CHAMPION!!
The only Safe which, in every instance,
preserved the entire contents at
the late Extensive Fires.
AT THE BURNING OF THE ARTIZAN
BUILDJNGS, April 10th, and in the gttat
fire in Market Street, May Ist, 1856, the gen-f
uino Hkrriko Safk preserved the Jewelry 6f
George YV. Simms & Bro.; Books, Papers &c.
of Fisher & Bro. and Edward Semsne & Co.,
afier remaining exposed In the burning ruins
for nearly Forty Hours, and proving conclu
sively what we have always claimed for
them, their great superiority over attaanuri
ties known.
In these fires, the HERRING'S SAFE,
Branding side by side with those advertised
as "warranted to stand 10 per cent, mora fir# /
than Herring's," came forth the acknowledge /
ed victor, not only preserving their contents /
in excellent order, bm being themselves in i J.
condition to go|hr(Mfh another ordeal, whiii ( '
the boasted "Salamanders" of other makejl
were badly used op in every instance,
in some cases their entire contents completely
destroyed.
To the public we would simply say, Ibat,
during the fourteen years of the Herring*
Safe has been before them, more than two v
hundred have passed through accidentalfites \
without the occurrence of a single locs. \
YVe would, therefore, caution purchaaera
against the misrepresentation of
parties. The Herring's Patent is the
Fire-proof Safe made in this city which is
protected by a Patent Right, and we wiJU
guarantee it to resist more than
amount of heat of any other Safe now 1
