$3* From the cradle to the grave tlie human race
18 the foot-bull of diseases. Measles, whooping
cough, undone or two other complaints, arc ilie at
most certain afflictions id childhood ; then come
influenzas, coughs, catarr hs, and a host of the light
troops of tho destroyer, and if we miss his heavy
artillery, such as consumption, typhus fever, scrof
ula. tho various eruptive maladies, rheumatism,
dyspepsia, liver complaint, &o , See., we arc truly
fortunate. For most of the last-named complaint-1,
and especially the ulcerous and cutaneous diseases.
Sands’s Sarsaparilla is, however, an almost unfail
ing remedy. Rarely, very rarely, if properly ad
ministered and persevered in, does it fail to produce
the desired effect, and the proprietors point with
confidence Jo the voluminous testimony of its effi
cacy in their possession, which the invalid can ex
amine, as data, on which to form an opinion.
For further particulars and conclusive evidence
of its superior value and efficacy, see pamphlets,
which may be obtained of agents gratis.

GREATLY REDUCED PRICE—FROM *5 TO
S3 PER ANNUM.
SINGLE copy 25 CENTS.
PROSPECTUS OF THE NEXT (or 17th) VOL.
riMlE price of the Democratic Review has here
X tofore been too high—not for its size, cost, and
character, but for the means of tens of thousands
of readers who would be glad to receive it, and
among whom it is highly desirable that it should
circulate. For the purpose therefore, of largely
widening the range of its usefulness, and of multi
plying the numbers of those to whom it may he ac
cessible, it ha3 been determined, simultaneously
with the great reduction in the expense of the post
age. to reduce its subscription price also, from Five
to only Three dollars; and when several unite in
subscription, to as low as §2 60, or even $2 30 per
annum.
This very large reduction in the receipts (accom
panied \Cilh but a comparatively small diminution
of its expenses) involves, of course, an entire sac
rifice of profit upon it, unless compensated by n
vast multiplication of its subscriber's. There will
be at the outset only a small reduction in its num
ber of pages ; soon to be restored to its old number,
without increase of price, when the anticipated
success of the experiment shall justify it.
The Portraits ok Distinguished Democrats
will be continued —engraved in better and more
costly style than heretofore.
The Postage will hereafter, for any distance, be
only^iuc and a half cents ; it has heretofore been, for
over 100 miles, eighteen cents.
We look for an extension of circulation to be
reckoned by tens of thousands, as the result and
compensation of thi3 great reduction of price.—
Every friend of the work, and of the Democratic
principles and cause, is confidently appealed to to
exert himself with an active interest to procure it
subscribers ; botli to extend its usefulness, and to
carry it successfully through the crisis of this great
reduction of its receipts.
Those who have paid in advance, for the coiaing
year, will receive it, at the reduced rate, for a year
and a half.
TERMS HENCEFORWARD.
(invariably in advance.)
Single copy, - 03 00 I Eight copies, - 020 00
Four copies, - 11 00 | Thirteen “ . 30 00
It will thus he seen that when thirteen copies arc
ordered at once, the price is brought down to about
02 30 each. For six months, half these rates.
These rates afford high inducements to agents
and others to interest themselves to procure sub
scribers.
The cask system and payment in advance must be
uncompromisingly adhered to. The past relaxa
tion of it has caused an accumulation of not far
from 040,000 of debts due to the work. Hereafter,
this must be wholly reformed ; nor must either the
most eminent political friend, or tlie most intimate
personal one, he displeased on experiencing its ap
plication, in the stoppage of their numbers, if they
neglect this rule ; the vital necessity of which, at
the present reduced rates, must he obvious to all.
No communications will be taken from the Post
Office unless free of postage.
All communications, both on editorial and pub
lishing business, must be addressed henceforward
to the undersigned. Those relating to the settle
ment of the past debts due the work will he still
addressed to Mr. II. G. Langley, 8 Astor House,
the past arrangements with whom, as publisher!
have reached their termination

LAST LIKENESS OF GENERAL JACKSON.
The admirable Daguerreotype of General Jack
son, taken by Anthony, Edwards & Co., a few
weeks before his death, has been purchased for the
use of the Democratic Review. It is in the hands
of the artist, and will be engraved in the finest style
of mezzotint, of extra size. It is a most beautiful
and interesting work, declared by Mr. Van Huron
and others to give a more perfect idea of the good
and great olff man than any other likeness ; and
ought to be possessed and framed by every friend
who loves or reveres his memory. Those who sub
scribe early will receive it as one of the regular sc
ries of Portraits.
TO THE DEMOCRATIC PRESS.
Our friends of the Democratic Press arc requester!
to interest themselves in aiding to carry the work
safely and successfully through the crisis of this
Croat reduction of price. Every Editor inserting
jhis prospectus, with an editorial notice, (anrl send
ing a copy of the paper marked,) shall receive the
Review for a year. Aug 16

heard, but heals all cuts and eradicates those little
pimples which render shaving so unpleasant to
some. Its emollient powers cannot be too highly
praised. It gives a pleasant feeling to the skin ar

and free from blemish. A better compound was
