have ever been placed before tbem. have conferred
the same amount of benefits on suffering humanity,
or have elicited so many commendations from all
classes of society, as the remedies of Dr. Hoofland,

The Cordial is designed for a class of diseases
more general and more fatal than i any other to
which the people of this country are subject

that Colds are to our inhabitants what the Plague

The Proprietor in calling the attention of the
public to this preparation, does so with a feeling of
thc utmost contideuce in its virtues and adaptation
to tbe diseases for which it is recommended.
It is no new and untried article, but one that has
stood the test of a twelve years' trial before the
American people, and its reputation and sale are
unrivalled by any simimilar preparations extant.
The testimony in its favor given by the most
prominent and well-known Physicians and indi
viduals in all parts of the country is immense, and
a careful perusal of the Almanac, published ann
ually by the proprietors, and to be had gratis of
any ot their Agents, caunot but satisiy tne most
skeptical that this remedy is really deserving the
great celebrity it bas obtained.
READ THE EVIDENCE.
From J. Xetrton Jirotrn, I). D Editor of tlie
Lrtcydvfidta if liiligiout Knoaledge.
Although not disposed to favor or recommend
Patent Medicines iu general, through distrust of
their ingredients and etlects, I vet know ot no
sufficient reason whv a man may not testify to the
benefit lie believes uimsclt to have received trom
any- simple preparation, in the hope that he may
thus contribute to the benefit of others.
I do this the more readily in regard to ' Hoof
land's German Bitters," prepared by Dr. C. M.
Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced
against them for years, under the impiession that
they were chiefly an alcoholic mixture. I am in
debted to my friend Robert Sbomaker, Esq., for
the removal of this prejudice by proper tests, aud
for encouragement to try them, when suffering
from great and long continued debility. Tbe use
of three bottles of these Bitters, at the beginning
of tbe present year, was followed by evident re
lief, and restoration to a degree of bodily and
mental vigor which I had not felt for six months
before, and had almost despaired of regaining.
I therefore thank God aud my friend tor directing
me to the use of them.

J. C Ana k Co. Gents: I feel Jt my duty to ae
knowledge what your ftu-wparilla has doue for me,
lUving inherited a Scrofuloa infection, I have' latrerMt
fi-oui it in various ways for yesnu Sometimes it burst
out in fleers on my lutudi and arm; lomvtimes if
turned inward and distressed me at the stomach. Two
years ago it broke out on my head aud covered my scalp
and ears with one sore, which was paiuful and loathsome
beyond description. 1 tried many medicios and several
physiciaus, but without much relief from any thing. B
fact, the disorder grew worse. ' At length I was rejoiced
to read In the tiospel Messenger that you had prepared
Sn alterative (Sarsaparilla), for I knew from your reputa
tion that any thing you made must be good. I sent to
Cincinnati and got it, and used it till it cured me. I took
it, as you advUe, in small doses of a teaspoon ful over a
month, and used almost three bottles. Ktw and healthy
kin soon began to form under the scab, which after a
while fell oil. My skin is now char, aud I know by my
feelings that the dieeae hits gone from my system. You
can well believe that 1 fuel what I am saying when I tell
yon, that I bold you to be one of the apostles of the age,
and remain ever gratofulty. . Yours, -

Dr. J. B. 8. Channing, of New York City, writes j I
most cheerfully comply with the request of yonr agent in
saying I have found your Sarsaparilla a most excellent
alterative in the nunierom complaints for whioh we
employ such a remedy, but especially ia fmale Disease
of the Scrofulous dmtheM. I have cured many Inveter
ate eases of Lencorrho?a by it, and some where the com
plaint was caused by ulceration of the uterus. The ulcer
ation itself wsssoon cured. Nothing within my knowl
edge equals it for these female derangements.'
dward S. Marrow, of Newbnry, Ala writes, " A dan
gerous ovarian tumor on one of the females in my family,
which had defied all the remedies we could employ, ho
at length been completely cured by yonr Extract of Sar
saparilla. Onr physician tlwnght nothing hut extirpa
tion coulil afford relief, but lie advised the trial or your
Sarsaparilla as the last resort before cutting, aud it
proved effectual. After takiugyour remedy eight weeks
no symptom of the disease remains.'

Dr. J. C. Area : Sir, I cheerfully comply with the rs-
2 nest of yonr agent, and report to yem some of the eflecta
have realized with your earxaparilla.
I have cured with it, in my practice, mmt of the com
plaints for which it is recommended, and have Atnnd its
effects truly wonderful in the cure of Venereal and Met
curial Disease. One of my patients bad Syphilitic ulcers
in his throat, which were consuming his palate and the
top of his mouth. Your Sarsaparilla, steadily taken, ,
cured him in five weeks. Another was attacked by sec- '
ondary symptoms in his nose, and the ulceration had
eaten away a considerable part ut it, so that I believe the
disorder would soon reach bis brain and kill him. But it
yielded to my administration of your Sarsaparilla; tlia
ulcers healed, and he is well again, not of course without
some disfiguration to his face. A womau who had been
treated for the same disorder ly nieit-ury was suffering
front this poison in her boues. They had become so sen
sitive to the weather that on a damp dny she suffered ex
cruciating pain in her joints and bones, tbe, too, was
cured eutirely by your tarsaat'illa in a few weeks. I
know from ita formula, which your agent gave me, that
this Preparation from your hiboratory must be a great
remedy; consequently, these truly remarkable results
with it have not surprised uie.

I.ndepsndenc, Preston CoM Vs.. Cth July, 1859.
Dr. J. C. Avek: Sir, I have been afflicted with a pain
ful chronic Rheumatism for a long time, which baffled tbe
skill of physicians, and stuck to me in spit of all the
remedies I could find, until I tried your Samaparilla. One
bottle cured me in two weeks, and restored my general
health so much that I am fur better than before I was
attacked. I thiuk it a wonderful medicine. J. 1 KKAM,
Jules Y. Getchell, of St. Lotus, writes t "I have been
afflicted for years with an affection of tlie Liter, which
destroyed my health. I tried every thing, and every thing
failed to relieve me : and I have been a broken-down man
for some years from no other cause than derangement of
Vie l.irer. My beloved patttor, the Kev. Sir. Kspy, aavlsea
me to try your Sarsnparilla, because he said he kcew yon,
and any thing you made was worth trying. Ity the Mess
ing of God it has cured me, and has so purified my blond
as to make a new man of me. I feel young agaiu. The
best that can be said ofyou is not hair good enough."

This is a remedy so universally known to surpass any
other for the cure of throat and long complaints, that it
is useless her to publish the evidence ef its virtues. ts
unrivalled excellence for coughs and colds, aud its truly
wonderful , cares of pulmonary disease,, have made it
known throughout the civilised nations of the earth,

who have not some personal experience of its effects
some living trophy in their midst of its victory over tha
subtle and dangerous disorders of the throat and lungs.
As all know tha dreadful fatality of these disorders, aud
as they know, too, the effects of this remedy, we need not
do more than to assure them that it has now all the vir
tues that it did have when making tbe cures which have
won so strongly upon the confidence of mankind. -
