A SOVEREIGN remedy for Ague and Fever.
This great Remedy: to which the public atten
tion is particularly called, has been extensively
used in the western &. south western states, as a spee
dy safe and certain cure for Ague and fever, Dumb
Airiie. Chill, orintcnnittent Fever.
J'he unexampled and complete success attending its
use; and so well proven have become its wide spread
victories over every form of Ague in the west that the
'clint'inro1 it now mmprHPtlint every other offered
remedial agent, and looked upon as the only one that
can tie relied upon in all stages of the disease.
The many thousands of instances wherein it has
wrouuht cures, while no instance is known, norcan
Ikj shown of failure, warrants it in bein" offered as
possessing the three cardinal merits, without which
no medicine can be safely used in Autre cases. These
merits are, that itscurcs are safe, certain nnd'perma

Mackenzie Compound Liver Pills
These truly Celebrated Tills,
NOW projH'rly esteemed in all neighborhoods
where they have been used, were first made some
Twelve years Aro by the proprietor, from a Veget
able Extract,' and then recommended by him as a su
perior Bilious Pill He then resided in an eastern
City. On his removal to the west, in 1836 he was
noun forced to observe the very general complaint
then and now prevalent, of a Diseased state o,
The Liver, Jaundice &c. His long experience
if the primary causes,and disastrous rcsultsof an at"
fi ction oftliis all important working agent of the hu
man frame, and posessed as he was of a practical
knowledge of the specific action produced in that or
irnu (the Liver.) by the Extract so successfully resort
ed toby him in eastern practice induced the Proprietor
to give Inst ills a trial in those diseases wnerc Chron
ic or Torpid State of the Liver was Complained of.
The result in every instance, so far as ho has been
informed, has thown their Complete Triumph over
that disorder. Thus convinced of their comii.ete elli
cacy, he has evcrsincc invariably recommended them;
and thousands who in the health-restoring use of them
have been benefited, now bear witness to their power
ful cllects in ridding the system of all those diseases
connected with or dependent upou an unheulthy state
of the Liver, such as Li lions and other Fevers, Jaundice
Dyspepsia, Siek Headache, Flatulency, Heartburn,
llahiiuul owtivness, &c.
In view of all these facts, the proprietor in recommen
ding his Comvotwd Livkr Pills, docs so with
the greatest confidence in their properties of prevent
ing and curing Bilious Dincascs. He assures those
who may have occasion to use them, That they are
strictly w hat they purport to be, being prepared express

CONSUMPTION and Liver Complaint
Dr. Taylor's Balsam of Liverwort has been used
successfully lor eight years in the ere of these diseases.
'Remember the original and genuine i made only at
i!7j Bowery N. Y., all others are spurious and unau
thorized. To the Public V hereby certify that our son,
ti t years old, was suddt nly taken ill with n fever, and
after a severe sickness; a violent cou"h ensued.
He was bloated, his skin was tilled, and his physi
cian said there was no favorable symptom alioulhim
that fie had confirmed consumption. At that time we
procured a bottle of that valuable medicine, Taylor's
Ualsam ol Liverwort. Alter taking one bottle, we be

TO THE
TT has been truly said that the Supreme Ruler of the
JL tor its permanent and radical cure and, it is a remarkable fact that the lemody is always found in- thd
greatest abundance where the disease exists to the most alarming extent. Thus it is with the Fevers and
their remedies. In all low, wet, and swampy countries we find Fever and Ague, and Fever in all its variey
forms, carrying hundreds to an untimely grave yearly: we also rind the H'iUvw, end the Ltoiuset, iu
their greatest perfection, and it is from these two most valuable Tonics to be found in the vegetable king
dom that the only certain and posative cure for Fevers has U-en obtained.
WILDER'S SUGAR COATED NEGETABLE ANTI-FEVER PILLS are prpared from an extract
procured from the Willow, Boneset, andCayenue Pepper, by anew chemical proces of their own discovery,
and are immediately coated first with gum arabic and then with sugar, which protects thee.xiracts from the
atmosphere, thereby preserving the medical properties as pure in the Pills as tliny are in the living plant.
These celebrated pills have become so famous lor their virtues in curing Fever and Ague, and all other Fe
vers, that but little need be said of them. Their action upon the system is wonderful, so wonderful that a
chill or fever of any kind, no matter of how long standing, will yield to their operations almost immedi
ately, and rarely takes more chan one or two days to etlect a perfect and lasting cure. Wherever they have
gone they have universally superceded the use of any other remedy, and they only need a trial to convince
every one that they are f ur sucrior to an remedy ever administered for the cure of these niost obstinate op
pressions of the humane frame, for which they are recoommended.
The discovery of this medicine has been the etlect of long and attentive study, and was tr ade publicfrom
the most decided conviction, founded on ample experience of its powers of eradicating from the system the
most intractable cases of Fever, after all other medicines had failed. The euros performed in the city of
Louisville alone are sullicient to establish its superior virtues on a basis too solid to be affected by the mal
ignity of the envious. It is worthy of remark, that the greater part of those persons who have been pcrma
nentfy cured had previously resorted to all other known remedies, and numbers had been abandoned as be
yond the reach ot mebical skill. Such is the fact, and soextraordinary were many of the cases cured, that
they wlil satisfy the most incredulous that Wilder Sugar Coated Vegetable Pills are the only elleclual rem
edy ever discovered that will positivey cure Fever and Ague, and Fever in its various forms.
We have in our possession hundreds of certificates from the most respectable sources; as it would however
be swelling the length of this advertisement unnecessarily, we avoid publishing, and will refer all those
who doubt the merit of these Pills to the following well known and resectable merchants, all of whom have
sold large quantities, and have had every optwtuiiity of seeing the remarkable cures performed in cases
where every other remedy failed, and from all of whom we could procure a certificate of the higher! com-

THE PILES-A CURE FOR LIFE SECURED.
Dr. Vpham's Vegetable Electuary, or Internal Itemed y for the Piles.
P REPAIRED BY A. LTH AM, New York, a regularly educated Physician, w ho devotes his attention
almost entirely to this disease. No mineral can be detected in the composition, nor any other article
that can lie directly or indirectly dtjeterious. The remedy was invented by Dr. L'phain after he left college,
1 le was driven to hnd a cure for the piles by the misery the disease inflicted uKin him ; and he now oflers
the benefits of his discovery to the world at large. The proprietor of the Electuary unequivocally and dis
tinctly avers (and challenges contradiction) that it will completely cure external, internal, blind or bleed
ing piles ot the longest standing, no matter how obstinate the case may be. or hopelessly the patient may be
considered situated. Three one dollar boxes have entirely eradicated the disease, after it had existed in its
most terrific aspects for twelve, fifteen twenty and twenty-five years; in proof of which, the fortunate indi
viduals who were made whole have nresented the most iKHitive mid unmistakable trstimnv In
ces a cure has been effected by six doses, or hall a box, after the ingenuity of a host of physicians, and the
dreadful kniie ot the Surgeon has been exercised to the utmost with but the smallest shadow of success
1 hese are not idle assertions, falsely put forth to entrap the credulous, but solemn and wonderful truths to
winch hundreds will testily. Even it a surgical operation were certain to accomplish a permanent cure, it is
too disgusting to be thought of, while theagony it engenders is appalling in the extreme, and shatters the con
stitution beyond a hope ot recovery. The number ot persons effectually cured of piles by the Electuary in
two years tall but little short of ten thousand in New-York, Philadelphia, Boston and other cities oi the
Union. I his is a great result to boast, and is not equaled, or even approached, by any event noted in the
medical history ot the world. It is reusonable to suppose that sneers w ill be levelled at these remarks So
mey w ere ai r uiton w nen no nrst made known the worth ot steam and its great practical utility so they
were at the persecuted Galileo w hen he published his discovery of the Microscope so they were at Morse
when he hinted at the discovery of the Magnetic Telegraph which is now a familiar and every day affair.
It IS safer for thcSUtlerer to Irv before he scotls. and nrorure linmnn.va nnrl n roneunl linapnl if Ko lif
M nny a man bus lost his existence bv otrmittiiitr liis
I he Electuary is particularly commended to the attention of married ladies, one-half of whom are
subjected to the attacks of piles in a middled form. The medicine can lie safely taken under all circumstan
ces. Either before thepiltsappear, or after they have made theirsad havoc, the victim is made to endur
severe costiveness, giddiness, intiamation of the spleen, kidneys, liver, intestines, bladder and spine, with
many corresponding ailments, lor the sure cure ot all of which nothing equals the Electuary. These pro
fessions are not solely mercenary, but are made with a view of alleviating the distresses of myriads who can
discover no method whereby to gain a restoration of their health. This tuct will be apparent to all who in
spect the medicine, when, by so doing, they may percieve that its cost must necessarily be almost as great
as the price demand for it ! I labile this certain and sjieedy remedy is to be had cheap, it is crimnal to
neglect to test its woi th, and put our unoualilied observations in its favor the test.

Our colony is rapidly rilling up with an industrious,
intelligent and moral people, and must soon become
the most populous part ot Texas. The Government
has recently formed the counties of Grayson, Dallas,
Denton, Collin, and a part of Robeson and Navarro
within the Grant. It is decidedly the most healthy
part of the slate, the lands having a gently undulating
surface; there are no ponds, swamps or marshes, and
no local cause for disease. The atmosphere is pure
and pleasant. During the warmest months of sum
mer thrre is a constant breeze playing over the prair
ies, and the nights are invariably cool; the thermom
eter never rises above 85 toW, and in the winter nev
er falls below 30 degrees Fahrenheit. It abounds jn
springs, and at the depth of fifteen or twenty feet, in
the iiiidt of the prairie, the bwl water cn l hnd; all
the small streams are peculiarly clear and crystal like.
Colonel William Myers, who removed there from
Garrard County, Ky., last fall, says, in a letter dates
8th Mav. 1847. "1 will not venture to tell my friendd
in Kentucky that the land here was better than the
best land in Kentucky, because they would not be
lieve it; but now 1 assert it, for the soil is deeper,
being in many places five feet, and the kindest land
to work 1 ever put a plouch in. I verily believe that
around the. forksof the Trinity. lies the largest body
of first-rate land in America.'" From the forksof
Trinity to Santa Fe, is only about 600 miles by the old
Spanish trail, and the newspapers in Texas are now
advocating the route up the Trinity, and from its forks
by land, as in every resiect preferable to the one by
Independence, Mo. Why should Emigrants think of
going to Oregon or California when they can obtain
better land for nothing, so much nearer home?
This is. perhaps, the last opportunity that will ever
ofTer on the continent of America of getting landsfor
the mere cost of surveys and cost of deeds. Our Col
ony is emphatically the place for the poor man's
home: there be does not have to feed his cattle for six
or seven months in the year; there he will have a
home market for all the surplus he can produce for
years to come, and with industry and economy, speed
ily become rich.
Let no Emigrant loose sight of the important fact
that our contracts with the Government of Texas ex
pireon the 1st day of July. 18W, and that he must not
only be in the Colony, but that he must have selected
his land, built a house or cabin thereon, and be resid
ing therein wiih liia fnmilv hv that dnv:)ne day af
ter that date, and the opportunity of petting lands for
nothing is, perhaps, lost for ever. Persons desiring
additional information, by addressing the undersign
ed Trustees or either of them, post paid, shall recei e
prompt attention.
