CATIIAltTIC TILLS
OPFdtATK by their powerful influence on the
internal visrera to purify the blood and slimu
lato it into ltallhy action. They remove the
o'ustriK t:!is of the stomach, bowel, liver, and other
r .':iiis of the body, and, by restoring their irregular
(tciioii l health, correct, wherever they txiist, such
derangements i are the first causes of disease.
An extensive trial of their virtues, by Professors,
"i'liyMci.iiis, and Patients, has shwn cures of dan
Krous diseases almost beyond belief, were they not
substantiated by persons of such exalted position
and eharaetor'ait to forbid the suspicion of untruth.
Their certificates are published in my American
Almanac, which the Agents below named are
pleased to furnish free to all inquiring.
Annexed we ave Directions for their use in the
complaints which they have been found to cure.
1-'ok Cos m kness. Take one or two Pills, or
stub quauti y as to gently move the bowels. Cos
tiveness in tVequently the aggravating cause of
riT.bt, and tV.c cure of one complaint is the cure
rf both. No person can feel weil while under a
ci stive habit of bodv. llcute it should be, as it
can be, promptly relieved.
Fu:i IlvsrhpiiA, which is sometimes the cause
of Cvstin ss, and always uncomfortable, take mild
J-s from one to four to stimulate the stomach
arm iiwr into he:;'.thv action. 'J hey will do it, and
tii- lu arlbarti, bmlii'utrn, :aid sonburn of dyspepsia
v.;,l rapidly disappear. When it has gone, don't
fi.ret what cured you.
lVr a lori. .stomach, or Morbid Inaction of the
Iif-h, which nroduic general depression of the
spirits and bad lv .1U11, take from four to eight Pills
at fust, and sn.a'.l r doses afterwards, until activity
and siren lb is wl'ired to the system.
Vo:i Ni.stvoesx'-ss, Siu 11kaachk, Xavsr.v,
',') .a '.- S'unur. h. H ick, or .Wc, take from four
ev.ri.t pi Is n-i going to bed. If tliv do not oper
ate ai'JiicWisUy. t.'.ke more tho next day until they
de. Tln-sf co!.i;)'..uut-i wi'1 be swept out from the
system. l).i;i't wiiar these and their kindred dis
jr'ieis because vour stomach is foul.
l'i'U Sckoki l, Hkysifei.as, and all Disease
of t?? S.';in, take the Pi!l freely and freuuenlly, to
kfv;i t!.e bowels open. The eruptions will gener
ii' so ii iicein to diminish and disappear. Many
i:e:n'.;'.!i ulcers and sores have l en liealed up by
t
mn 'ir.u and j.uriiint; effect of these Tills, and
c (ii .;.Mil!n diseases which seemed to saturnte
the whole sysii-rn h ;ve eoiupUtelv yielded to their
iiit'.iu-.nce, ir.ivii'r the suil'cier in i:erfoet health.

THE
"0XF0RDSIGML.!'
TIIE fcNbscribers paving purchased the
office, materials, &c, of the Demo
erotic Flag, propose to publish in th
town of Oxford, Miss., a weekly politi
cal journal, to be known in future under
the name of The Oxford Signal.
Not being entire strangers to the po
litical public, no lengthily detailed pro
gramme of policies for any future gui
dance in this undertaking, need at this
time be presented. Suffice it to bay, that
the Signal will, like its predecessor, the
Flag, zealously advocate the time-honored
and time-tested creed of the , 0
XAT10.M DEM'BATIC PARTY, .
as first promulgated by Jefferson and his
compatriots, in contravention of politi
cal dogmas and heresies simular in many
respects to those which we are at pres
ent called upon to oppose a creed, whose
policies have not only met the sanction
of every true patriot in our land, but
have, in everv tiast emerencv of our
government, proved th?m -'sufliciect uu
to all hings" political, and have given
impulse to our renown aa a nation un
paralleled iu the annals if tarth.
While the Signal will be "national
not .sectional" in its politics while it
will advocate what it tnav conceive to
be the true interests of our whole eoun
try, it will watch with jealous care those
peculiar to the Southern portion of our
confederacy, whenever assailed by h
naticisni, native or foreign, having at all
times a strict view to the peace and per
petuity of a
CONSTITUTIONAL UNION,
he only Uinon which can be regarded
as being of paramount political value. .
The Signal will seek, to elevate the
.-tan 'ard of po'.iiieal honor and political
freedom; to this end, will wage a war of
! extermination upon all oath-bound, and
secret political organi.at ions, ever found
ed in distrust of the morality and inteli
gence of the masses, and their capacity
or self government.
It will advocate unequal right in eve
ry citizen to a participation in me tues.
