Nervousness, Irritability. Inflamma tions, Headache, Pains in the Breast, Side, Back, and imbs, Female Complaints, &r. &c. Indeed, very few are the diseases in which a Purgative Medi cine is not more or less required, and nuch sick ness and suffering might be prevented, if a harm less but effectual Cathlartic were more freely used. No person can feel well while a costive habit of body prevails: besides, it soon generates serious and often fatal diseases, which might have been avoided br the timely and judieious use of a good purrative. This is alike true of Colds, Feverish symptoms, and Bilious derangements. They all tend to become or preduce the deep seated and formidable distempers which load te hearses all orer the land. Hence a reliable family physic is of the first importance to the public health, and this Pill has been perfected with cosummate skill tasse that demand. An of its Plyskhaus, Profes re been effected beyond beh re the stantiated by persons of such exalted p character as to forbid the suspicion of unt.r'th. Among the nany eminent gentlemen w.eo have tes'ified in favor of these Pi !s. we may mention: !ProL J. M. Locum, Analytical CLemist, of Cin cirati. whose high professional character is en .rsed by JosN McLEAw, Judge of the Supreme Court of the United States. Txos. Comtwx [, Secretary of the Treasury. Hon. J. M. Wulour. kovirnor of Indiana. N. Loxowourn, great wine grower of the West Also, Du. J. It. CHILTON, Practical Chemist, of New York City, endorsed by Hom. IV. L. Macy. Secretary of State. Wx. B. AsTOR. the richest man in America, S. LIANn & Co., Propr's of the letropditan Hotel, and many others. Did space penrmit. we could give many hundred eertiflcates, from all parts where the Pills have' been used, but evidence even more convincing than the experience of eminent public men is fead in their effcts upon trial. These Pills, the result of long investigation and study, are offered to the public as the best and most complete which the present state of medical science can afford. They a- oempounded not of the drane themselves, but o. .b medicinal virtues only f Vegetable remedies, extracted by chemical process in a state of purity, and combined together m such a manner as to insure the best results. This system of composition for medicines has been found in the Cherry Pectoral and Pills both, to produce a wore efdiicent remedy than had hitherto been ob tained by any process. The reason is perfectly ob vioas. Wh ile by the old mode of c: mposition, every medicine is burdened with more or less of acn monious and injurious qualities, by this each indi vidual virtue only that is desired for the curative effect is present. AUll the inert and obnoxious qual ities of each substance employed are left behind, the cerative virtues only being retained Hence it is self-evident the effects should prove, as they have proved, more purely remedial, and the Pills a surer, ,more powurfui antidote to disease than any other medicineme known to the world. As it is frequently expedient thrt my medicine should be taken urer the sounsel of an attending Physician, and as he could not properly judge of a remedy without knowing its composition, I have upplied the accurate Formulae by which both my Pectoral and Pills are made to the whole body of Prantiinners in the United States and British Amer lea Provinces. If, however, there should be any ses who has not received them, they will be -romptly forwarded b mail to his request Of all the Patent Medicines that are offered, how fe would be taken if their composition was known ! Their life consists in their mystery. I have .a e composition of my preparations is laid open s ai men, and all who are competent to judge on the mbjet freely acknowledge their convictions of their intrinsic merits. The Cherry Pectal was Pmnaonaeed by scientific men to be a wonderfpl medicine before its effects were known. Many ea heat Physicians have declared the same thing df SPills, and even nmore confidently, and are will Sto eartify that their anticipations were more a alised by their effects upon trial. They operate by their powerful inflence on the nte. viscera to purify the blood sad stimulate it .t l Ttion--remove the obstructions of the aJ bowel.s. ver, and other ogans of the b..'`ý, yi g their bregulu .etion m) health, and by e icting, wherever they exist, such derange Uts as are the Arst origin disease.

'lie seed is sound and fit , for pilanti, g. The juggler collects a qutiltity of earth, moistens it with water, Sanoal, taking a nmango stone from his bai, p- lants it in ilhe earth lie has prepared. Ov. r all, hle pl.ces a nmoderate sized rh ,otald baket, upon which he slpre,(ls his r cloth.or a native hblaket After an in terv;da of discortdant music and incantsa ti,,n, the cloth aisd basket are removed.

I had a shrewd suspicion that if I could examlinle this tree of mniracu* bIus growth it would turn out a very simple affair. Acting on this idea, I M -suddenlly seized it, and, in spite. of ti ot Sclnalor of tie juggless, lore it c, off. It certaninly had thie appealance of a real d i nmangorho it. There was the lhirtystone. ;, wet and discohlred. with theeartn cling o ing to it. From its lower part, the o white fibre- of the recent root streamed i out with a most natural appearance, ti p whilst from the upper side sprang a perfect young shoo)t, six or eight inches tI i in height, witlh the leaves in their earliest D growth. A basin of water solved the iny-tery, for, on washing the stone, I Sfound it old aud dry, and split down on one side. From its cavity I took out a small bugndle of grass rdots. onle end of tl which was tied with threadl, and wil th drew the young shloot of the maaango from I the tlop (f the stot e. Here you have It only one part of thle, pparatus off decep- a tioln, It is perfected in the following s Ssargef: The - awngo, lan evergreen, gro.sj L al~j ost e~eqry large garden in a India.

We have derived no. little trousement from the perusal of a circular issued to liquor dealers throughout the country by it firm in New York, in which the imf pnortant informnation is conveyed that they have been for nmany years "trying to improve all kinds of spirits from grain andi turn them into a good imitation of French. cognac; and that, efter much la(or and and, expeliment, they have at last fonnd an article to answe, that pur pose." They thus set forth the process ..f manufactory : "By distillation and chenical operation we got at fourth. proof an article in which the flavor is so much coincemtrated that, by mixi a gallon of it witlh twenty-five to fifty Ins of American pure spirits, it gives a good imitation of tile different imported brands." One gallon of "an article" to produce from twenty-five to fifty gallons of imitation of the imported brands ; to L'e bottled, labelled, net forth and swal slowed at one dime per pony glass, as an article such as 'you 'Clnnot get elsewhere in town." This article is called spirit of co' gnac, anil, according to tile circular, 'Imay be had without color, or colored for pale or dark." 'Dark, by all means;" '"I pr.fer pale." "You can take which you peasne, gentlemen ; but you are now aware of the manner in which both are prepared." This enterprising firm have also dis covered an article which they call spirit of gint. Thiey aver ttat a splendid imni tation of Holland gin can be produced by nmixingp one gallon of the spirits with forty gallons of pure spirits. In addition, they have constantly on hand a fine supply of "chemical coloring," by which the "dark" article of imitation brandy is produced. 4 The circular closes with a list of prces which, if published, would astonish our citizens, many of whom, when im bibing these "imitations," which cost about sixty cents per gallon, are inform ed that "Lhat brandy cost me $8 in New York." With this information in their posses sion we should not wonder if henceforth there was a decided decline of confidence amonga brandy drinkersaw well as among the imbibers of the less pretentious li quors, gin and rumn.

Some time, since, an English lady embarked on Lake Saratoga, in a canoe manned by Indians who did not fail. before starting, to give her to understand that if she desired to avoid exposing herself to certain death, she would have to observe Irotfund si-. lence until the other side should eli reached. They started, the day was delightfully calm, not a breath of air was I stirring, and the canoe glded as noise le-sly as a slladow over the scarcely rippled waters. About a mnile from the .lo,re, that is about the middle of the lake, the lady, wishing. to convince the Indians of the folly of their supers'itiln, uttered as loud a cry as she Was able. Terror seized the Indiants, their ccunten ances were marked wiith the strongest lines-they fully expected to perish in staantaneouslv. Neveriheless they pilied their o:mrs with mechanical energy in si lence, and tile opposite shore was soon reached almost with the rapidity of an arrow.
