" PA LEMON JOHN, Pres't. Bloomsburg, Pa., Sept. 19, 1857. IMPORTANT DISCOVERY. CONSUMPTION, AND ALL JISEASES OF THE LUNGS And THOATTate positively curable by in halation, which conveys the remedies to ihe cavities in she lungs through ihe air pas sages, and coming in direct contact with tbe disease, neutralizes the tubercular matter, allays the cough, canses a free and easy ex pecio-olion, heals tbe lungs, pur lies the blood, imparls renewed vitality to the nervous sys tem, giviug that tone and energy so indis pensable lor the restoration of health. To be able to stale confidently that Consumption is curable by inhalation, is to me a source of unalloyed pleasure. It is as much under the control ol medical treatment as any sther formidable disease; ninety out of every hun dred cases can be cured in the first stages, and fifty per cent, in the second; but in the third stage it is impossible to save more than five per cent., for the luugs are so cut up by the disease as to bid defiance to medical skill. Even, however, in the last stages, in huiation affords extraordinary relief to the suffering attending this tearful scourge, which annually destroys ninety five thousand per sons in the United States alone; and a correct calculation shews that out of the present pop ulation of the earth, eighty millions are des tined to fill the consumptive's grave. Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so falal as Consumption. In all ages it has been the great enemy of life, for it spares neither age nor sex, but sweeps ofT alike the brave, the beautiful, the graceful, anil the gifted.— By the help of that Supreme Being, from whom cornelh every good and perfect gift, I am enabled to offer to the afflcted a perma nent at:il speedy cure in Consumption. Ttie first cause of tubercles is from impure blood, and the immediate effect, produced by their deposiiion in the lungs, is to prevei t the free admission of air into the air cells, which causes a weakened vitality through the entire system. Then surely it is more rational to expect greater good from rr.edij cities entering the cavities of the lungs than Irom those administered through the stom ach; the patient will always find the lungs free and the breathing easy after inhaling remedies. Thus, inhalation is a local remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally, and with more power and uertairity than rem edies admininered by the stomach. To prove the poweitul and direct influence ol this mode of administration, chloroform inhaled will entirely destroy sensibility in a lew min utes, paralyzing the entire nervous system, so that a limb ma) be amputated without the s'ighlest pain; inhaling the ordinary burning gas will destroy life in a few hours. The inhalation of ammonia will rouse the system when fainting or apparently dead.— The odor of many ol the medicines is per ceptible in the skin a few minutes after being inhaled, and may be immediately delected in the blood. A convincing proof of the constitutional effects of inhalation, is the fact that sickness is always produced by breath ing foul air. Is not this positive evidence that proper remedies, carefully prepared and judiciously administered through the lungs, should produce the most happy results? Du ring eighteen years' practice, many thous ands, suffering from diseases of the lungs and throat, have been under my care, and I have affected many remarkable cures, even alter the sufferers had been pronounced in the last stage', which fully satisfies me that 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 the nature of tubercles, &c., enables me to distinguish readily the various forms of dis ease that simulate consumption, and apply the proper remedies rarely being mistaken even in a single case. This familiarity in connection with certain pathological and mi croscopic discoveries, enables me to relieve the lungs from the effects of contracted chests; to enlarge the cbest, purify the blood, imparl to it renewed vitality, giving energy and tone to the entire system. Medicines with full directions sent to any part of the United States and Canada* by ftaiienls communicating their symptoms by etter. But the cure would he more ceitain if the patient should pay me a vieit, which would give ine an opportunity to examine the lungs and enable me to prescribe with greater certainty, and then the cure could be effected without my seeing the patient again.

I READING, March 4th. 1 The undersigned, members of the Commit- . tee, do respectfully report, that we saw the two Safes originally agreed cpon by Farrels St Herring sud Evans Si Walton, placed side by side in s furnace, viz: The Sale in use by the Paymaster of Ihe Philadelphia and Read ing Railroad Company, in hit office at Read ing, manufactured by Farrels & Herring, and the Safe in-use by H. A. Lantz, in bis store, manufactured by Evans & Watson, and put in books and papers precisely alike. The fire was started at 8i o'clock, A. M-, and kept up until four cords of green hickory, two cords dry oak and half chestnut lop wood were entirely consumed, the whole under the supesiiMendence of the subscribers, mem bers ol the Committee. The Safes ware then cooled off with water, after which they were opened, agd the books aud papers taken out by tb6 Committee and sent to H. A. Lamz's store for public exsminalion, after they were first examined and marked by the Commit tee. Tbe books and papers taken from ihe Safe manufactored by Evans & Watson were but slightly affected by the inteifse heat, whila those taken from the Sate manufac tured bv Farrels & Herring were, in our judg ment, damaged fully fifteen per cent, more than those taken from Evans & Watson's Safe.

Extrsot from the Committee's Report on the Trial of Iron Sales at Reading: "On the 26ib ol February alt the members of the Committee met to witness the Safes and books and papers, (placed in them} and were perlectly satisfied that all was right.— The day following, the burning took place, under the superintendence of the Committee. Altera fair and impartial burning fur five hours, the Safe of Messrs. Evans & Watson was first opened, the Safe being on tire in side, and the contents partially consumed, while Ihe contents in the Sale of Messrs. Farrela & Herring were in good condition, ami no fire inside." Reading, March 2, 1857. H. F. FELIX, ) (Signed) P. N. COLEMAN, S Com. A. H.

The above Sales can be inspected at 34 Walnut Street, where the public can satisfy themselves of the great superiority of tko "Herring's Patent Champion," over the de feated and used-up "inside Iron Door Sala mander." FARRELS & HERRING, 34 Walnut St., Philad'a. Only makers in this Stale of Herring's Patent Champion Safes. The attempt made by other parties to bol ster up the reputation of a Safe which has failed signally in acuideutal fires in Philadel phia, (Ranstead Place,) by taking one out of an agent's store, [H. A. Lsntz,] made dou ble thickness, (different from those they sell) to "burn up" one of Herring's, (half as thick) has met with its due reward. Herring's Safe could not be burnt, proving conclusively that the only reliable Safe now made is Herring's, ol which over 15,000 are now in actuel use, and more than 200 have been tried by fire without a single loss.

FRANCE are Ihe managers, are chartered by the slate of Maryland, and a commissioner elected by the people, who is sworn to superintend and cettify that everything connected with them is done in a strictly honorable manner, and that the interists of parties who reside at a distance are as well protected as if tbey themselves were present at the drawing.— Another fact which the managers call atten tion to, is, that all persons have a leg;I right to send orders for tickets to Maryland, as lotteries are legalized by special law in that slate. A lottery is drawn everyday of the month. If no particular class is named, or ders are filled in the first drawing to lake place after the communication comes to hand. The prices of tickets vary from SI to S2O. No tickets are, however, sent unless th e money for the same is received with the order. The drawings are upon the principle of one number on each ticket (after the Ha vana plan,)and Ternary combination. Prizes vary in amount from 220 to 8100,000. All orders for tickets or packages will receive prompt attention, and the drawing mailed to all purchasers immediately after it is over. Address, T. H.
