No. 1"20 Ar'ak Street, Philadelphia.
Their power over the above diseases is not ex
'celled, if equalled, by any other preparation in
the United States, as the cares attest, in many
cases after skilful physicians had failed.
These Bitters are worthy the attention of ii
valids. Possessing great virtues in the rectifca
tion of diseases of the Liver sad lesser glands,
exercising the most searching p.rers in weak
ness and affections ef the digestive organs, they
are, withal, safe, certain and pleasant.
Read and be Convinced !
The Philadelphia Saturday Gazette says of
Dr. Hoofland's German Bitters:
"It is seldom that we recommend what are
,termed Patent Medicines to the confidence and
,patronage of our readers, and therefore when we
rrecommend Dr. Hotland's German Bitters, we
-wish it to be distinctly understood that we are
mot speaking of the nostrums of the day, that
are noised about for a brief period and then for
gotten, after they have done their guilty race of
mischief, but of a medicine long established,
universally prized, and which has met the hearty
approval of the faculty itself."
Scott's Weekly, of the 25th August, ays :
" Dr. Hoofland's German Bitters, ranufac
tured by Di. Jackson. are now recomlnended ly
some of the mtost prominent members of the
faculty as an article of much efficacy in cases of
female weakness. Persons of debilitated con
stitutioans will find these Bitters advantageous to
their health, as we know from experience the
;alntary effect they have upon weak systems."
MfORH E EVIDEXCE.
J. tG. Moore, Esq., of the Daily news, in his
r.ssue of October 31st, says:
" Dr. Iloo/Pard's German Bitters.-We are
'trying this renowned medicine for a stubborn
disease of the bowels, and can with truth testify
to its elfieacy. We have taken the contents of
two bottles, and we have derived more benetit
from the experiment than we derived previously
from years of allopathic treatment at the hands
Sof our tirst physicians."
Hon. C. D. Hineline, Mayor ftibe city of
*Camndea, N. J. says:
"IHosganad German Bitters.-We have
seen many flattering notices of this medicine,
and the source from which they came induced us
to make inquiry respecting its merits. Fronm
aiquury we were persuadqI to use it, and must
sav we founrl it specific in its action upon dis
.cases of the liver anddigestive organs, and the
;powerful influence it exerts upon nervous pros
tratien, is really surprising. It calms and
strengthens the nerves, bringing them into a
state of repose, making sleep refreshing.
If this medicine was more generally used, we
are satisfled ther would be less sickness, as from
'the stomach, liver and nervous system, the great
.majority of real and imaginary diseases emanate.
Have them in a healthy condition and you can
'bid deftnce toepidemies generally. This extra.
'ordinary medicine we would advise our friends
who are et all indisposed, to give a trial-it wil

PATENT MEDICINE
CHERRY PECTORAL,
For the rapid Cure of
COUGHS, COLDS, HOARSENESS,
BRONCHITIS,WHOOPING-COUiGH,
CROUP, ASTHMA, AND
CONSUMPTION.
OF all the numyous medicines extant, (and
some of them valuable) for the cure of pul
monary complaints, nothing has ever been found
which could compare in its effects with this pre
paration. Others cure sometimes, but at all
times and in all diseases of the lungs and throat
where medicine can give relief, this will do it.
It is pleasant to take, and perfectly safe in accor
dance with the directions. We do not advertise
for the information of those who have tried it, but
those who have not. Families that have known
its value will not be without it, and by its timely
use they are secure from the dangerous conse
quences of Coughs and Colds, which, neglected,
ripen into fatal consumption.
The Diploma of -the Massachusetts Institute
was awarded to this.preparation by the Board at
Judges in September, -147; also, the Medals of
the three great Institutes of Art, in this country:
alsoi, the Diploma of the Ohio Institute at Cin
cinnati, has been given to the Cherry PerItoral,
by their Government in consideration of its ex
traordinary excellence and usefulness in curing
affections of the Lungs and Throat.
Road the following opinion founded an the long
experiecr of the eminent Physician of the Port
and City of
ST. JOIrNS. May S, l.51.
Dr. J. C. Ayer-Five years trial of your Cther
ry Prreto,,rl in amy practice has proven what I
fioresas. from its composition, runst be true, that
it eradicates and cures the colds and coughs to
which we in this section are peculiarly liable.
I ebinc its equal has not yet been discovered,
nor do I know how a better remedy can be made
for the distempers of the Throat and Lungs.

Susnatr, Jan. 20, 1-51.
Dr. Ayer-la the month of July last I was
attacked by a violent diarrhara in the mines of
California. I returned to San Frahleisco in hope
of receiving benefit from a change of climate and
diet. My diarrhea ceased, but it was followed
by a severe cough-and much soreness. I finally
stasted for home, but received no benefit from
the voyage. My cough continued to grow worse,
and when I arrived in New .Irk, I was at
once marked by my acquaintances as a victim of
consumption. 1 must confess that I saw nosuf
ficient reason to doubt -hat my friends all be
lieved. At this time I commenced faking your
truly invaluable medicine with little expectation
of deriving any benefit ftoom its s, VYou would
not receive these lines did I not regard it my duty
to state to the altlicted, through you, that my
health, in the space of eight moatbm is fully re

Pectoral.
Yours truly, W'M. W. SMITH.

Deer Sir-Feeling that I have been speed
from a premature grave through your instru
mentality by the power of God, I will take the
liberty to express to you my gratitude.
A Cough and the alarming symptoms of Cow
snmption had reduced mne too low to Ie nme
anything like hope, when my physician b glht
me a bottle of your ' Pertoral." It seemed to
afford immediate relief, and now in a few weeks
time has restored me to soundealth.
