IMPORTANT DISCOVERY.
CONSUMPTION,
AND ALL DISEASES OF THE LUNGS
Ami TIIOATTute positively curable by in
halation, which conveys the remedies to
the cavities in the lungs through the air pas
sages, and coining in direct contact with the
disease, neutralizes the tubercular matter,
! allays the cough, causes a fteo and easy ex
| pectO'Biion, heals the lungs, purifies the blood,
i imparts renewed vitality to tho nervous sys
tem, giving that lone and energy so imlis
-1 peusnble tor the restoration of heulih. To be
able to state confidently that Consumption is
! curable by inhalation, is to me a eourco of
! unalloyed pleasure. It is as much under the
I control ol medical treatment as any ather
formidable disease; ninoty out of every liutt
; dred cases cutt be cured in the first s'.ages,
I and filly per cent, in lite second; hut in the
I third stage it is impossible fo save ntore than
! five per cent., for the lungs aro so cut tip by
the disease us to bid defiance to medical
F.|( ill. Even, however, in tho last stages, in
halation affords extraordinary rebel to the
suffering attending this fearful scourge, which
annually destroys ninety five thousand per
-1 sons in tho United States alone; and a correct
calculation shows that out of the present pop
ulation of the earth, eighty millions are des
lined to fill the consumptive's gruve.
Truly the quiver of death bus no arrow so
fatal as Consumption, lit ull ages it has been
tho great enemy of life, for it spares neither
ago nor sex. but sweeps oir alike the brave,
the beautiful, the graceful, and the gifted.—
By the help of that Supreme Being, from
| whom cometh every good and perfoct gift, I
iitn enabled to ofler to the afflcled a perma
nent at;d speedy cure in Consumption. Tlye
first cause ol tubercles is from impure
blood, and the immediate elfecl, produced
by their deposition in the lungs, is to ptevt't t
the free admission of air into the air cells, 1
which causes a weakened vitality through
| the entire system. Then surely it is more
rational to expect greater good from rrodij ;
cities entering iho cavities of the lungs than
lr ui those administered through the stom
ach; the patient will always find the lungs j
tree and the breathing easy after inhaling
remedies. Thus, inhalation is a local
remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally, 1
and v illi more power and certainty than rem
edies administered by the stomach. To prove j
the powerful and ditect iulluencc of this j
mode of administration, chloroform inhaled '
w ill entirely destroy sensibility in a lew miti- i
u'es, paralyzing the entire nervous system, so ]
dial a litnb may be amputated without the ;
s'ightost pain ; inhaling the ordinary burning
gas will destroy life in a few hours.
The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the
1 system when tainting or apparently dead.— t
The odor of many ot the medicines is per- 1
ceptible in the skin a few minutes after being
inhaled, and may be immediately detected i
in the blood. A convincing proof of the '
constiiuiional effects of inhalation, is the fact |
that sickness is always produced by breath- ;
nig foul air. Is noi this positive evidence 1
that proper remedies, carefully prepared and
; judiciously administered through the lungs, 1
should produce the most happy tcsults? Do
ting eighteen years' practice, many thous
, amis, sutferuig from diseases of the lungs
and throat, have been under my eare, and 1
■ have afflicted many remarkable cures, even
alter ihe sufferers had been pronounced in
the last stages, which fully satisfies me thai
consumption is no longer a fatal disease.—
My treatment of consumption is original, and
founded on long experience and a thorough
' investigation. My perfect acquaintance with
ihe nature of tubercles, Re , enables mc to
distinguish readily the various forms ol dis
ease that simulate consumption, and apply
the propet remedies rarely being mistaken
even in a single case. This familiarity in
connection with certain pathological and mi
croscopic discoveries, enables mc to relieve
the binge from the effects of contracted chests;
in enlarge die chest, purify the blood, impart
to it renewed vitality, giving euergy uud loae
j to ihe entire sysiem.
' Medicines wilh full directions sent to any
part of the United States and Canada* by
! patients communicating their symptoms by
i ietier. But the cure would be mora cfitain
if the patient should pay me a visit, which
would give me an opportunity to examine
the long? and enable inn to prescribe with
greater certainty, and then the cure could be
etiected without my seeing the pattern again.

Report of the Committee appointed to
superintend the burning' of the Iron
Safes at Heading, Feb. '27 th, 1857.
HEADING, March 4lh.
The undersigned, members of the Commit
tee, do reFpectfollv report, that we saw the
two Safes originally agreed upon by Farrels
& Herring ami Kvans & Wutson, placed side
by side in n lurnace, viz: Tho Sale in use by
the Paymaster of the Philadelphia and Head
ing Railroad Company, in his office at Head
ing, manufactured by Farrels & Herring, and
the Safe in use by H- A. Lantz, in his store,
manufactured by Evans & Watson, and put
in books and papers precisely alike.
The (ire was started at 8j o'clock, A. M.,
and kept tip until fourcords of green hickory,
two cords dry oak and half chestnut lop wood
wero entirely consumed, tho whnlo under
tho superintendence of the subscribers, mem
bers ol the Committee. Tho Safes were then
cooled off with water, after which they were
opened, ngd the books and papers taken out
by the Committee und sent to 11. A. Lama's
stare for public examination, alter they were
first examined and marked by the Commit
tee. The books and papers taken from the
Sale manufactured by Evans & Watson were
but slightly affected by the iutense heat,
while those taken from the Sale manufac
tured by Farrels & Herring were, in our juitg
ment, damaged fully fifteen per cent, more
than those taken from Evons Ac Watson's
Sale.

confirmed the verdict of more than 200 acci

Kxtrnet front the Committee's Report on
the Trial of Iron Safes at Reading:
"On the 2tith of February all the members
of the Commutes met to witness the Ssfes
and books and papers, (placed in them) and
were perfectly satisfied that all was right.—
The day following, the burning took place,
under llie superintendence of rhoCommittee. I
Altera fair and impartial burning for five
hours, the Safe of Messrs. Evans & Watson
was first opened, the Safe being on Hie in
side, and the contents partially consumed. '
while the contents in the Sale of Messrs. i
Farrels & Herring were in good condition,
and no fire inside."

ble thickness, (different from those (hey sell)
to ' burn up"or.eol Herring's, (half as thick)
has met with its Hue reward. Herring's Sate
could not he burnt, proving conclusively that
the only reliable Safe now made is Herring's,
of which over 15,000 are now in uctuel use,
and rnoro than 200 have been tried by fire
without a single loss.

LOTTERIES
TIIK well-known Maryland Consolidated
Lotteries, cl which 11. FRANCE & Co. are
the managers, are chartered by the state of
Maryland, and n commissioner elected by
the people, who is sworn to superintend and
certify that everything connected with thetn
is dons in a strictly honorable manner, and
that the inlerists of parties who reside at a
distance are as well protected as if they
themselves were present at the drawing.—
Another fact which the managers call atten
tion to, is, that all persons have a legal right
to send orders for tickets to Maryland, a*
lotteries are legalized by special law in that
state. A lottery is drawn every day of the
month. If no particular class is named, or
ders are filled in tho first draw in;; to take
place after the communication comes to
Itsnd. The prices ol tickets vary from Si
to SCO. No tickets are, however, sent unless
th e money for the same is received with the
order. '1 he drawings are upon the principle
of ono number on each ticket (alter the Ha
vana plan,)and Ternary combination. Prizes
vary in amount from #2O to SIOO,OOO. All
orders for tickets or packages will receive
prompt attention, and the drawing mailed to
all purchasers immediately after it is over.
