Ik. flrigiu of every Disease, & U me means ot cure. in the year 1795, Le Roy clearly demonstra ted that every disease originated from impure or undigested particles, becom ing mixed with the blood and fluids. And also, that to cure every disease, it was only necessary to open the natural outlets of the body, and allow them to remajn open, by which means'.the blood and other fluids will release themselves from these undigested and impure par ticles, and a state of health will be cer tain to ensue. The Royal Insliute ef France award ed to him lor this discovery, the Gold Medal of the Institute. This is a historical fact.. All which the Brandreth Vegetable i universal 1'iils pruless to do is, to car ! ry out this principle, and experience j has fully established them capable of it. I When, therelore, a bad state of health i exists in the body, all that has to be , done is to continue to ruuGEit etTectuai j ly with them, and the more violent the ( disease, the more powerful must be the , doss. j The Brandreth Pills are made entire 1 1 of V ege:ab!e Extracts, known by long ; experience to be perfectly innocent, and ! yet of more power as a purgative, or : cleanser of the alimentary canal, than any oilier medicine. Their elfect on the system is so easy, that it is a remar j kable fact that tho same dose may be given to an infant or adult, without the possibility of doing any injury but on the contrary good. Therelore in ces tiveness, either habitual or otherwise, and in BiHiovs Fevers,-and all bilious u tied ions they are of the greatest pos sible benefit.

The great secret is to have the mcd-. icine by j ou when you are first atack ek with sickuess; one dose then will have more good etl'ect than twenty, if you put it otfuntil disease has enfeebled the bodily powers; therefore every in dividual who considers health a bless ing, should always keep a box of Bran Pirelli's Vegetable Universal Pills, w lie re they can be sure to find them w hen waniecd.

It was selected by a committee, with an especial view tc health, from a high and salubrious region, w here no miasmata Irom stagnant water, or local cause for diseases of any sort can pos sibly be found. The Board of Trustees takes plea ure in announcing that, for the man agement of this Academy, they have procured the services of Professor R. Morris, late of De Soto Academy, so long known to the citizens of North Mississippi , as an untiring servant in the cause of Education. The health of Professor M. being re established, the Trustees feel that they cannot better recommend the advan tages of the Mount Sylvan Academy, than to sar that he will carry it on with all the skill with which his ex perience and talents promise. Assistant teachers will" bo engaged as needed. A Boarding House for applicants will also -be ready and will be enlarged as the wants of the school may re quire. Prices of good board will range from $30 to $40 per Session. The Trustees wish it to be understood that they hold the Principal of the Aca demy responsible for the conduct and management of whatever steward he may select to conduct the Boarding House. This will be a guarantee to those who send their sons to the Acade my that every attention will be paid to their comfort in health and sickness.
