DR. MeLANK'S LI V BR FILLS.
|Ty This great medicine has supplanted all others
for the euro of diseases of the Liver. Its effect? are
so salutary and so Speedy, and at tho same time so
perfectly safe, that it is not surprising that it should
supersedo all others. Invented by a very distinguish
ed physician of Virginia, who practiced in a rogion
of country in which Hepatis, or Livor Complaint, is
peculiarly formidable and common, and who bad
spent years in discovoring tho ingredients and pro
portioning their quantities, those Pills are peculiarly
adapted to every form of tho disease, and never fail
to alleviate the most obstinate cases of that terrible
complaint Thoy havo justly become celebrated;
and tho researches of Dr. McLano have placed his
name among the benefactors of utyinkind. No one
havingsyinptomsof this formidable complaint, should
be without theso invaluable Pills. Have you a pain
in tho right side, uider the edge of the ribs, which
increases with pressure?unable to lio with ease on
the lell side?with/occasional, sometimes constant,
pain under the shoulder-blade, frequently extending
to the top of the shoulder ? Ruly upon it, that al
though the latter pains are sometimes taken for rheu
matic, they all ariso from disease of the Liver; and
if you would have relief, go instantly and buy a box
of Dr. McLane'a Liver Pills.
(T"7- Purchasers will be careful to ask for Dr. Mc
LANE'S CELEBRATED LIVER PILLS, and take
none else. There are other Pills, purporting to be
Liver Pills, now before the public.
Dr. McLane's Liver Pills, also his celebrated Ver
uiifuge, can now be had at all respectable Drug Stores
in tho United States and Cun&da. 40

To those persons who may visit Washington, and
arc in want of a boot that cannot be excelled, either
in quality or workmanship, we would call their atten
tion to tho card of Henry Jannoy, to be found under
the head of' Washington ." A handsome and neat
ly-mado hoot in not at all times a source of pleasure
to tho wearer, but often one of extreme tortnre , this
is caused by the bungling manner in which the boot
is fitted to the foot. Mr. Janncy has devoted mnch
of his time in studying the construction of the human
foot, in order to ascertain how a boot should bo cut
and fitted, that will be perfectly easy to all parts of
the foot. In this he hiw succeeded, so that it matters
not what may be the shape of. or the number of corns
on the foot, his boot is perfectly easy. Thus ho has
combined beauty with comfort.

having spared neither pains nor oxpenso in making
them in every respect tho mo?t convenient and picas

1 ho plan adopted in teju>hiiig combines practice

exercised in making original entries of every .lay
business transactions Journalizing, posting b:ilan
oing accounts, opening and cloning of a great variety
P* "liferent sets of books, both for pa.rtuerr.hip anil
individual business, where the businets has been

examined privately, if they derire it,) when the Uu
dent undergo^ rigid an thorough interrogations by
the Princ pal, (assisted by a committee of Practical
Accountants and business men,) and Diplomas award
