WE regret to have to leave out this week several matters that the crowded state of our columns compels us to do. W* are pleased to see the renomina tion of Hon. George E. Mapes for the Legislature by the Republicans of Venango county. S. H. MILLIE, Esq, Republican nominee of Mercer county for Con gress, and Mr. John I. Gordon, editor of Mercer Dispatch, paid our town a brief visit last Saturday. RESOLUTIONS were unanimously adopted at the Mercer county Repub lican Convention, last week, instruct ing the Senatorial and Legislative candidates of that county to vote for Hon. Galusha A. Grow for next United States Senator, to be elected by the Legislature next winter. THE Pittsburgh Telegraph of the 25 inst., did not give "credit to whom credit is due" when it published from our article of the 23d inst., without saying where it got it. We are a little sensative on this point from the fact that it is so seldom we can get up any thing of sufficient importance to at tract the attention of our city ex changes. Congressional Conference. July 6th, at Mercer, has been agreed upon by Messrs. McJunkin, of this county and Miller, of Mercer, as the time and place for holding a Congres sional Conference for this district; doe notice of which has been given to all of the Crawford county parties. The Differenoe. The difference between Generals Garfield and Hancock is, that the one made himself all'he is, while the Gov ernment made the other all he is. Gar field educated himself and rose to feme and the Republican nomination for the Presidency, through his own ef forts and merits; while Gen. Hancock was educated by the Government and made the reputation he has in the re gular army and that brought to him the Democratic nomination. This is a difference the people of the United States should think of when voting next November. "TARIFF FOB REVENUE ONLY." The above is the language of the platform of the Cincinnati Convention that nominated Gen. Hancock for the Presidency. It is therefore the plat form upon which he stands, and must go before the people of Pennsylvania upon it. A tariff "for revenue only" is the old doctrine that would strike down and destroy the great material interests of this State. It means "no protection to Pennsylvania interests." The iron, coal, glass, and other inter ests of the State, would perish the moment protection against foreign manufactures was withdrawn from them and a "tariff for revenue only" substituted. Pennsylvania will not vote for Hancock for that reason alone. "AMERICAN POLITICS." The attention of our readers is directed to the address in this issue of the CITIZIN bearing the above title. Heretofore, about this time of the year, when the "4th of July" is com ing around, we made it a point to hunt up and publish the "Declaration of Independence," or some other patri otic matter. But seeing this address of Hon. Win. H. Koontz, of Somerset, Pa., we concluded we could not give anything more timely or more needed just now. He tells us of the evils ex isting in our politics, in such a manner I that we all know to be true. He then points out the remedies; and the duty of all good citizens to attend the pri mary meetings and Conventions, as the great remedy. By this way only can "machine" and machine politicians be defeated in their plots. Very recent experience demonstrates that rings and machines can be broken up, and will fee broken up in the future, if the great mass of the roters of both and all parties take the proper interest in our politics that they should take. We publish this address to aid, in our fee ble way, in encouraging good men and good practices in our politics, and say j,o all—read it. FAIRVIEW TO THE FRONT. The Republicans of Fairview Bor ough, this county, formed a Garfield and Arthur Club on Friday, '2sth inst., being the third formed in the county. Thomas Ilavs was chosen President of the Club, 11. C. Birchard, Vice Pres ident; Thos. Gibson, Treasurer ; W. C. Adams, Jr. Secretary; J. W. Hamp shire, Captain ; G. C. Maxwell, First Lieutenant and W. C. Asanas, Second Lieutenant. The meeting was ad dressed by Mr. Conway. 21 names were obtained for the cause. The Club adjourned to meet Monday evening last when it was expected the mem bership would be increased to 75. The above statement is from the Secretary, Mr. Adams. HANCOCK. The Democratic National Conven tion at Cincinnati last week ended its labors by nominating Gen. \\ infield S. Hancock, of Pennsylvania, as their cmdidate for next President, and Wm. H. English, of the State of Indiana, for Vice President. Gen. Hancock was nominated on the second ballot taken, receiving nearly the unanimous vote of the Convention. Of Gen. Hancock as a soldier, naught can be said but what is good. All concede that. But of Gen. Han cock as a candidate of the Democratic party, much can and doubtless will be said. A principal objection to him will be, that he is purely a soldier, taken from the Regular Army, and hence without experience in the civil affairs of the Government. Heretofore and for years past it has been the complaint of the Democrats that the Republicans made use of the services aud fame of military men, and they denounced it as unsafe for the liberties of the people. But recently they joined in warning against Gen. Grant. Now they seek to be "The Boys in Blue," and to don the uniform and the sword. In this new dress they appear at once awkward and out of place. The Republicans sought, after the late war, to honor sol diers for their services to the Union cause, but Gen. Hancock's first and principal supporters for this nomination came from the South. However, with a candidato of the broad experience and ripe Statesmanship of Gen. Gar field the Republicans need not fear the result of the coming contest. What may now look like a strong nomination by the Democrats may in the eud prove a very weak one to them. The memor able case of the nomination of Gen. Scott by the Whigs, in 1852, who when nominated it was thought would carrv everything before him, but who received the vote of but four States in the Union, may be the case with Gen. Hancock next November. lERCEB COUNTY—CONGRESS. The Republicans of Mercer county met in county convention at Mercer on Tuesday of last week, 22, inst, and put in nomination the following ticket: Congress, Samuel H. Miller, Esq., Senate, H. S. Blatt; Assembly, Thos. Perry, S. M. Loveland and W. R. Montgomery. Mr. Miller was nominated for Con gress by acclamation, Mr. Wm. Achre, his competitor for the nomination in that County, having withdrawn his name from before the Convention after its meeting. Mr. Miller is thus unani mously presented by his county. The whole three counties of this Congressional district having now held their County Conventions and named their candidates, the next thing in order will be the meeting of the dis trict conference, for the purpose of de termining the nominee for the district. The candidates of the diff'-rent coun ties are as follows : Butler, J. I). Mc- Junkin, Esq.; Mercer, S. H. Miller, Esq.; Crawford, Col. W.B.Roberts and Hon. S. B. Dick. It will be seen there are two gentlemen in Crawford county claiming to be the regular nom inee of that county, and we therefore give both their names as above. This arises from an unfortunate trouble had in the Convention of that county, and the rights of the two claimants we pre sume will have to be decided by the other counties of the district at the dis trict conference. The vote in Crawford county on Congress it seems was close between Messrs. Roberts and Dick and the Return Judges to the Convention were about equally divided on ques tions that came before them affecting the regularity of the returns from cer tain districts, the result of which was that each of the candidates, Dick and Roberts, were declared by their friends in the Convention as the regular nom inee. It is to be regretted that they could not, by a decisive vote, have de cided all matters while in Convention, as was done in this county. Their trouble appears to arise from the fact that they were about equally divided on certain questions and votes in their Convention. We hope however this trouble in that county will not prevent a united agreement upon a candidate for the district. The Census book of Butler bor ough has not yet been returned but Esq. Anderson informs us that the names will add up to over 3,100. If the census had been taken a few years ago it would likely have been over 4.000. In 1870 our population was 1,935, and J. K. Mctjuintion was enumerator. In 1800, Mr. (_}. W. Crozier was the enumerator or as sistant Marshall as it wan called then, for But ler borough and Butler, Centre, Concord ami Worth township, but the aggregates are not given on the returns. Four houses in this town were en tered and burglarized last Saturday night, but outside of getting something to eat we have not heard of their getting anything valuable, ex cepting about *9 from Mrs. Eli Miller's dress pocket. One of the houses entered was Mr. Fry's, next door to Miller's on Jefferson street. Mrs Frv noticed one of the burglars in their bed-room, but supposing that it was their boy walking in his sleep, did not awaken her hus band until it was too late to catch the burglar. The next day they picked up a handful of burned matches with which the burglars hail been lighting their way through the house. Some of the houses were entered by way of the cellar, the others by way of a window. ♦ lpU».t 3uit«> 3G, 1380. THE DEMOCRATS RATIFY. Upon the receipt of the news of the nomination of (Jen. Hancock, as their candidate for President, the Democrat of this place concluded to ratify the same, and for that purpose duly as sembled in front of the Lowry House, last Thursday eve 'g with music and all things in regulation order. Capt. Zeigler of the Herald had tl e honor of the first call to address the meeting. This honor was accorded him as one of the rivals of Gen. Han cock for the Cincinnati nomination, which fact however the Captain mod estly refrained from alluding to. The news of his candidacy, h ; s friends al lege, did not reach Cincinnati in time, else it is possible he might have car ried off the nomination given to Han cock. This is accounted for by some from the fact that the letter "Z," being the first letter of his name, but the last one in the alphabet, was so low down as not to be reached in the Conven tion. Had it been higher up he might have been an "A, No. 1," candidate, as he certainly is. The Captain how ever fully endorsed Gen. Hancock, his successful rival, and made about the best speech we ever heard him make, the only novel feature being that it was a Tilden speech. He declared that the Democrats this year would rebuke the alleged "fraud" of four years ago when Mr. Tilden was deprived of the Presidency, but some of his listeners wondered how it was, if that be true, that Mr. Tilden was not again the can didate 111 order that the alleged fraud might be thus rebuked in his person. The Captain did not mention the Credit Mobilier business. Hon. L. Z. Mitchell was the next speaker. lie congratulated himself and audience upon the selection of Geu. Hancock; was pleased all over witb the nomination, nnd seemed to think they had got the very man now they wanted, to beat the Republicans. He eulogized Gen. Hancock as a hero in the late war for the suppression of the Rebellion. And here weinay say that no Republican during this coming campaign need, nor indeed can, cnll in question Gen. Hancock's good military record and fine soldierly conduct dur ing the late war. All admit that. But the General belongs to the Regular Army —was educated aiid trained by the Government for a soldier, and was therefore only in the line of duty when iu the service in any war. That is his business and duty. Gen. Garfield, the Republican nominee, on the other hand, was a volunteer in the military service of the Government. And here is where we think Mr. Mitchell made a bad ar gument, in alluding to Gen. Garfield resigning his commission in the army to take the seat in Congress his con stituents had elected him to while in the service and in the field. The people had a right to his services in Congress and they chose him without any agen cy or personal effort on his part. He served however in the army until the last day upon which it was necessary for him to go and fill the se.it to which he had been chosen. Would not Mr. Mitchell have done the same? But the po'.nt in this matter is, that Gen. Gar field was a citizen soldier, volunteer ing as a patriot, while Gen. Hancock was a member of the regular army, serving under orders. Samuel P. Irvin, Esq., was, to the surprise of some present, the next speaker called upon and threw a wet blanket upon the proceedings by pitch, ing into both parties. He said he re joiced in the action of both the Chicago and the Cincinnati Conventions, in that the "rings" had been defeated in both, which was a good and true re mark, but he did not say he would vote for Hancock, and as he has ex plicitly aud frequently said he would vote for Garfield since his nomination, we take it, a mistake was made in call ing out Mr. Irvin. lie closed by saying he had not his mind fully made up as to whom he would support, but would look over the whole ground and then decide. Maj. John B. Butler was the next speaker called out, but we left shortly after. We understand he was proceed ing to say something about the hang ing of Mrs, Surratt when the band struck up a tune and the Major re tired. _ _ "AMERICAN POLITICS." [Continued From First Page men that the same rules of honorable conduct which govern in the ordinary transactions of life must be rigidly ad hered to and observed in the conduct of political affairs. PRIVATE VS. POLITICAL LIFE. What, shall it be said that a man should be punctilious in the observance of that which the highest sense of honor dictates to him in private trans actions, and yet be morally indiffer ent to that which effects the interest of the whole country! That he shall scorn meanness and trickery iu all the private affairs of life, and yet quietly wink at them when the destinies of a great nation hang in the balance ! This is a monstrous perversion of mor ality, and sooner it is determined by men of all political parties, that trick ery and chicanery of all sorts are to be discountenanced in political matters, the better it will be for the country. A man might just as well be extremely cautious that some petty interest be preserved intact from injury and yet unmindful if a planet were to drop from its sphere. HRIBERY AND URIBE TAKING. Then come the offenses of bribery and bribe taking; bribing legislative officers, which to the credit of the country and the credit of our common humanity arc of rare occurrence ; but notwithstanding the fact that the late constitutional convention in this State endeavored to hedge around the busi ness of legislation with all possible safeguards, the recent couviction of several prominent persons for bribery has cast a stain upon our grand old Coin mon wealth. THE ILLEGAL BALLOT. Another evil iu our system of poli tics is the illegal intorf rence with the ballot. The ballot is the distinguished feature between our government and of nearly all others. In some coun tries the ballot is permitted, but no where so freely allowed as here, where every adult male citizen (Indians ex cepted) is allowed to cast his ballot, so that on elect : on day the good and bad, the rich and poor, the high and low, the white and black, the wise aud un wise, the sober and otherwise, throw their ballots into the box. and out of it there comes that which determines who shall be legislative, executive and judicial officers, whose duty it is to make, execute and expound the laws for a great people. The ballot being an instrumentality by which our public affairs are guided, it is of the utmost importance that it lie kept pure ; that none but honest votes go into the box, and that an honest count of the votes be made .and returned. To tamper with the ballot is a high crime against free government anil the highest form ot civilization. So sacred is the ballot un der our form of government, that to tamper with it ought to be made an of fense as odious as treason, for it is nothing short of treason to the country to strike at the very root of our insti tutions. It should be the duty of all political parties to see to it that the ballot box is kept pure ; that the whole machinery of our elective system is kept free lrom the taint; because as long as it is possible to pollute it, either by- stuffing it with illegal votes, or fal sifving the count, that long is it pos sible for the dishonest and wicked to overpower the honest and law-abiding, and to carry out their nefarious schemes, and thus bring the nation in to contempt and dishonor. THE ELECTORAL COMMISSION. Take, for example, the last Presi dential contest and see what a specta cle we presented to the other nations of the world It was in the centennial) year of the nation's life. We had in. l vited the other nations of the world to our shores to vie with us in one of those grand expositions in which the genius, the skill aud handicraft of all the nations of the world were exhib ited in generous rivalry. We were ex ultant because of our national prosper ity—because of our marvelous produc tions, which, coming from the young est of the nations, were in many re3r pects equal, and in others superior, to the other natious of the world. We were exultant because of the vastness of our country and its wonderful re sources. Hut over and above all, that which most thrilled the heart of the American oilmen was the fact that here there was larger liberty of person, more freedom of thought and action ; that this great republic, extending over its vast borders, was the people's own government, owned and controlled by them without the intervention of em perors, kings and nobies; and that this, government, having reached the hun dredth year of its existence and having withstood the trials and shocks of a century, was proof against all the dan ger of tiie future. That was the thought that captivated tke Iwfti'ts tfiit} miijdsof the American people. But alas ! how soon was mortifica tion and shame to follow our exalta tion and pride. The election over, and in doubt which party had succeeded. Ii was manifest that it was so close that shrewd management might turn the scales eithe.- way. Then followed a series of acts which make one of the dark pages In our history. Crimina tion and recrimination by both parties, as to the ways employed in the election, by the intimidation of voters, in corrupt dealing with the ballot box, in the fal sification and rejection of returns, and the alleged attempts to purchase the votes of electors; and although we had just been boasting, that as our govern ment had stood for a hundred years, it was so firmly established that *it could withstand the shocks of the future, we were almost precipitated into a revolu tion, which might havo ended in the overthrow of our government. Hap pily the disaster was averted by the prudence and skill of our legislators of both political parties, but even now, with this terrible experience, and al though few years have elapsed since its occurrence, we have, as ye;, no law upon the statute book providing for a like emergency. So that with all our vanity as to our superior institutions, all our boasting abont our government, and our shrewdness as a people over and above those of all other nations of the earth in particular, and the rest of mankind in general, we haven't yet learned how to count in a President in a contested case without the charge of cheating in the count. 1 would urge, then, that one of the highest duties of every American citi zen is to see to it that the ballot is safely guarded. That little slip of pa per which every voter takes into his hands on election day is a force more potent in the affairs of the world than all the iron-clad fleets that ride the waters, or the mightiest armies that causes to quake with the march of their advancing squadrons. A more strip of paper it is more potent than the edicts of kings and emperors. Light as a feath er it is yet strong enough to bear the superstructure of the mightiest govern ment ever erected upon the planet. Abused and maltreated as it has been, it is yet the only hope of the raco for ul timate emancipation from the wrongs that have been intlicted upon humani ty by tyrants and oppressors in the ages of the past. The English are fostering it, by grad ually extending the elective franchise ; the French have at least secured a He publican form of Government; but Socialism threatens Germany and Ni hilisui hangs like a thunder cloud over Russia, and the fact that nearly all the sovereigns of Europe have been shot at, or their assassination attempted iu one form or another, only verifies the adage that, "Uneasy rests the head that wears a crown." THE BALLOT, NOT TIIE BULLET. The ballot, aud not the bullet, will remedy these troubles. Then, while other nations are struggling for it, let it be our special duty to foster it, and make it indeed aud in truth, "A weapon which comes down as still As snowflakes fail upon the sod, Yet executes a freeman's will As lightning does the will of God." Another disagreeable feature of our system of polities is the manner in which appointments to office are made by the president and confirmed by the Senate, by which office is dealt out as a reward for political services. If the President and the Senate are of the same political party, the executive is frequently hampered by Senatorial and Congressional interference, and in turn j Senators find Congressmen are bar- ; assed with the claims of office-seekers, and much of their valuable time taken | away from their legitimate duties. The fierce struggles caused by the des titution of such an immense number of officers, tie frequent appointment of persons totally unfit, the injury caused thereby to the public service, has caused a general demand for Civil Ser vice Reform, and both political parties have been compelled to make it a prom inent feature of their platforms. If the President and Senate are of different political parties, then comes the tug of war ; not a war, however, as to fitness and competency of ap pointees ; not as to what should be done for the best interests of the coun try ; but pnrely aud solely for the flesh pots and camp kettles. In the conflict between Andrew Johnson and the Senate of the United States, there were occurrences which would have been more suitable in a horse trade than between the Executive of the na tion and one of the highest delibera tive bodies in the world. THE DANGER OF COMMUNISM. Another evil to which I will advert is the tendency of political parties to cater to the spirit of communism, which has been growing to an alarm ing extent in this country, and which culminated a few years ago in an out break of lawlessness and violence, dur ing which several of the railroads of the country were seiz'd, some of our large cities controlled for a brief period by mob law, and millions of private property destroyed. It was a humil iating spectacle indeed, coining so soon after the Centennial Exposition at Philadelphia, but it was a lesson that the American people had to learn, and its teaching should be that all political parties should denounce everything tending to encourage communism, or else receive the jus condemnation of all honest people. Among the great bulwarks of Eng lish liberty transplanted to American , soil is that of thp right of private pro perty, and it cannot be interfered with without underminding the very foun dation of the government. Take a\Y*Vy the security that the law now gives to property, and you take away every in centive for the exercise of the virtues of thrift, economy and industry, which from the basis of a nation's greatness. THE REMEDIES PROPOSED, J have thus imperfectly pointed out some of the evils existing in our sys tem of politics, not in a carping spirit and with the view of a pessimist, but of an optimist rather, anxious only for that which tends to purify our politics, and make representative government something to be held up to the other nations of the earth as an example worthy of their imitation. And, in deed, until something is done to cor rect theseevils, Republican institutions will exist largely in name only and not in fa t. Abraham I/incoln, in that memora ble speech on the field of Gettysburg, enunciated the doctrine that this is a government "of the people and for the people." Rut if under our system of politics a large portion of the people are excluded from participation in the priip.aiios, \yhere tfyeir influence v/ould be most telt in shaping the legislative and executive policy of the govern ment; if conventions are manipulated by a few leading politicians who seek to perpetuate their own power by a division of the spoils of office among their adherents— thpq instead of being a government of the people and by the people it is the government of an oli garchy and held together hy no other tie than the adhesive power of public plunder, and all that is needed will be that a favorable opportunity pre sent itself for them to break up and de stroy our representative government, and preet an imperial one in its stead. ATTEND TIIK PRIMARIKS. Do you ask wherein are the reme dies for tbese evils? I answer, first, in a full attendance at the primaries by all good citizens, with a determina tion on their part to make their influ ence felt; aecond, the overthrow of the caucus, aud the methods employed by profHsed politicians to capture Sttite and National Conventions; third, opposition to unlit and unworthy candidates not only by scratching, but by voting against them ; fourth, a high er standard of qualification for office, which required that the men should be in every way qualified for the place ; fifth, every possible safe-guard to he thrown around the ballot box | sixth, the abolition of patronage and the spoils system; seventh, and last, but not loast, the complete «vnd entire overthrow of mere machine poli ticians. Let these things he done, and our elective system will lie purified and our country exalted among the nations of the earth, THE MOST FAVORED NATION ON EARTH. That, in spite of these evils, we are favored above all the other nations of the earth, should not cause us to be indifferent as to the future of this coun try. It is true, as was uttered by Henry, Lord Brougham, that "Repub lics have none of these appendage# which the people have learned abso lutely to hate, and which a mere nar row sifting of the account will make them debit to kingly government: an insolvent aristocracy; an intolerant Irerarchy ; a vexatious admisistration of the law ; mighty standing armies in peace time ; numerous colonies for pur poses of patronage aud corruption ; had laws to hamper trade; unjust prefer ences to oppress industry ; evil cus toms to discourage genius." AN IMPORTANT SUBJECT. The subject upon which I have at tempted to address yoi| to-night is one that comes directly home to every American citizen. It concerns every one who has at heart the welfare and prosperity, the honor and perpetuity of our free institutions, but especially does it concern those who are just coming upon the stage of action. Students in this honored place of learning, you are here for the purpose of equipping yoursolf for the strug gles before you in the great battle of life, and no matter what your vocation may be after you leave this place, yon cannot escape the duty that rests upon you as American citizens. You have doubtless while here acquired large stores of learning, but in the rough en counter with the world there will be much to be learned, and no lesson is more necessary than the careful study of our system of government so as to enable you to help rid it of its imperfections. As your boat glides . down the current of life, now floating [calmly upon its waters, and now toss- Ed about by adverse waves, the stream will gradually widen, the banks will lessen, the landseaj»e will become broader, and new field* will spread out , in fresh and never-ending beauty, and ' thus you will pass on until finally you j are launched into the great ocean of! eternity. Rut in all this voyage there will be 110 higher or greater duty de volve upon you than to help adminis ter this great trust of free government; than to help govern the great Repub lic o the United States of America. WORDS OF ADMONITION. Let me admonish you then to help guard this sacred trust; to help edu cate your fellow countrymen up to the highest standard of American citizen ship ; to guard the ballot as you would the apple of your eye And if all the young men who this year go forth from the various institu tions of learning throughout the land would resolve that they would do all iu their power to purify American pol itics, then indeed would wc realize, in fact, that ideal Republic, seen by the mental eye of John .Milton, when look ing down through the vista of time he exclaimed: "Methinks I see a noble and puis sant nation rousing herself like a strong man after sleep, and shakiug her invin cible locks; methinks I see her as an eagle, nursing her mighty youth and kindling her undazzled vision at the full mid-day beam, purging and un sealing her oft-abused sight at the very fountain itself of heavenly radi ance." ___ At § Cents.

MARK mm HOLLOW AY'S PILLS. | Kxercisti your judgment. -A newer and better philosophy,—To pi|!T down all absurd and anti quated notions of diseases and its cures, ami to establish a rational system on the ruins, has been the chief endeavor of l>r. llolloway through life. Hence the origin of his celebrated Pills and Oint ment remedies in keeping with common sense, because subservient to nature, rather than at variance with her laws, like those in general use. To tbe stomach we trace dyspepsia, heapaclie and general debility ; to the liver, bile, jaundice, and yellow fever; to the bowels, dlarrho-a. dysentary, constipation, piles and fl-luly ; to the luims, con sumption. etc.; lo tip- bi iiMl, scrofula, scurvey, and all cutaneous eruptions. By keeping these organs and vital l|i|id pill" ami healthy we may safely defy the attack* of Ilisc use,and no medicine vet prepared for this purpo •• can equal tbe action of these Pills and Ointment, as they dive to the seat of the disorder, and extirpating Its cause, de stroy lis effect.

They are the result of years of careful study and practical ex periment, and are the most effectual rem edy yet discovered for diseases caused by derangement of the stomach, liver, ana bowels, which require prompt and effectual treatment. AYER'S PILLS are specially applicable to this class of diseases. They act directly on the digestive and assimi lative processes, and restore regular healthy action. Their extensive use by physicians in their practice, and by all civilized nations, is one of the many proofs of their value as a safe, sure, and perfectly reliable purgative medicine. Being compounded of the concentrated virtues of purely vegetable substances, they are positively free from calomel or any injurious properties, and can be admin istered to children with perfect safety. AVER'S PILLS are an effectual cure for Constipation or Costiveness, Indiges tion, Dyspepsia, Loss of Appetite, Foul Stomach and Breath, Dizziness, Headache, Loss of Memoir, Numbness, Biliousness, Jaundice, Rheumatism, Eruptions and Skin Diseases, Dropsy, Tumors, Worms, Neuralgia, Colic, Gripes, Diarrhoea, Dysentery, Gout. Piles, Disorders of the liver, and all other diseases resulting from a disordered atate of the digestive apparatus. As a Dinner Pill they have no equal. While gentle in their action, these PILLS are the most thorough and searching cathar tic that can be employed, and never give pain unless the bowels are inflamed, and then their influence is healing. They stimu. late the appetite and digestive organs: ffley operate to purify and enrich the blood, and ini)>art renewed health and vigor to the whole system. Prepared by Dr. J. C.
