A WELL regulated and proportionate quantity of bile upon the stomach is always requisite for the promotion of sound health it stimulates digestion, and keeps the intestinalcanalfree from all obstructions. On the inferior surface of tho liver is a pe culiar bladder, in which the bile is first pre served, being formed by the liver from the blood. Thence it passes into the stomach and intestines, and regulatesthe indigestion. Thus we "see when there is a deficiency of bile, the body is constantly costve. On the other hand, an overabundance of bile, caus es frequent nausea in the stomach; and of ten promotes very severe attacks of disease, which sometimes end in death. Fevers are always preceded by symptoms of a disordered stomach; as are also serofu lous disordeis,and all sympathetic function al, organic or febrile diseases. From the same cause, the natural and healthy action of the heart, and the whole vascular system is impaired and reduced below its natural standard; as exhibited in palpitations, lan guid pulse, torpors of the limbs, syncope, and even death itself, in consequence of an overabundance of a peculiar offensive sub stance to the digestive organs. 4 The approach of bilious diseases is at all times attended by decided symptoms of an existing diseased state of the stomach and boweli;.i. e. with those signs which are known to point out their contents to be of a morbid irritating nature; but whenever the alimentary canal happens to be loaded with irritating matter, some derangement of the healthy operation, either of the general sys tem, or of some particular organ of the b dy is the certain result; and when this staien happens to be united with any other symp toms of disease, its effects are thereby much aggravated. The progress of organic ol struction is often so rapid as scarcely to ad mit of time for the application of such aids as is to be offeied by art, yet, in general, the premonitory symptoms of gastric load are perceptible for a day or two previous to the feverish paroxism, a period, when lhe most pfficacious assistance may be given, by un- oading the stomach and alimentary canal f its irritating contents, and thus reducing he susceptibility of disease. I MOFFATS LIFE MEDICINES, jShouId always be taken in the early stages !of bilious complaints; and if persevered in jstrictly according to the directions, willpos- tively effect a cure. . The mineral medicines often prescribed in these diseases, although they may affect i temporary cure, at the same time create n unhealthy state of the blood, and conse quently tend to promote a return of the very Disease which they are employed to cure tis then by the use of purgatives, exclu ively formed of vegetable compounds, which, possessing within themselves no deleterious agencies, which decomposition, combination r alteration candevclope or bring into ac ion; and therefore capable of producing no jffect, save that which is desired that a safe remedy is found. The LIFE PILLS and PHENIX BIT TERS have proved to be the most happy in itheir effects in cases of bilious disenses, of any purely vegetable preparation ever of fered to the public. If the stomach is foul, jthey cleanse it by exciting it to throw offits jcontents; if not, they pass to the duodenum Iwithout exciting. vomiting or nausea in the ptomach ; stimulating the neighboring vfcera las the liver and pancras, so as to produce a more copious flow of their secretions into the intestines; stimulating the exhalent capil laries, terminating in the inner coat, which an increased flow of the useless particles of the body, Foreign matters, or retained secre tions, are completely discharged. .

TCI EVER and Ague is afnostobstinatedis- ease, and in warm and humid climaxes, frequently resists every ordinary mode of cure, S3 as to become very distressing to the patient; and by the extreme debility which the disease induces, it often gives rise to other chronic complaints. Marsh miasmata or the effluvia arising from stagnant water, is the most frequent exciting cause of the disease; and one of its great peculiarities is its susceptibility of a renewal from very slight causes, such as from the prevalencs of an easterly wind even without the re petion of the original existing cause. In this, Fever and Ague differs from most other fevers; as it is well known, that after an or dinary fever has once occurred, and been removed, the person affected is not so liable to a fresh attack as one who was not so af fected. These circumstances render it ex tremely difficult to effect & permanent cure of Fever and Ague, though iorelieve the pa tient for the time being is a very easy task. MOFFATS LIFE PILLS Q..PIIE vir 7 Ji frTE RS Inivc been thoiCHihly test- proved hen PCmTlVE Am RADICAL CURE of Fever and Ag-f Hundreds of his fellow citizens mlbo tVcst, have voluntarily come forward toaiureMr. Moffat that the LIFE MEDICINES the only medicines that will THOROUGH' LY effect a removal of this most tedious tyi disagreeable disease. . - , - i I Others who have emigrated to that ricli ind promising portion of our couritry--men who went out full of hope, and confident ot winning a competence from tho luxuriance of the soil; or who carried to the outposts of our settlements the mercantile or mechani cal experience won in the crowded cities and towns of the older States, have either return ed with shattered constitutions and depress edspirits,orthey remain in their new homes, dragging out a weary life; at last tosink, un der some disease to which they are predis posed bv that terror of the West, the Fever and Ague. Their hopes are blasted their business energies destroy ed-their El Dorado becomes a desert, and tho word of promise, made to the ear is broken to the hope. To these individuals, Mr. Moffat would say "Try the Life Medicines, nd you wil yet anticipate your most sanguine expecta tions, for they will certainly restore you to health." ' , Fever and Agie is a complaint which re quires to bo met at its first approach, and combatted at every stage. Seldom fatal ot itself, it reduces the strength, acd impairs the functions of the organ?, so that upon the manifestation of disease Nature is unable, unassisted, to resist the inroad. The Lifb 51edicixes, when taken stricily according to directions will cure it, and give to the weak and trembling victim of disease, new health, life and strength.

The sale of every additional bottle and box is a guarantee that some persons will be relieved from a graater or,fess de gree of suffering, and be improved in gen eral health; for in no case of suffering from disease can they be taken in vain. Tho proprietor has never known or been inform ed of an instance in which they have failed to do good. In the most, obstinate cases of chronic disease,such as chronic dyspepsia p.. torpid liver, rheumatism, asthma, nervoui and bilious head ache, costiveness, piles, general debility, scrofulous swellings and . ulcers, scurvy, salt rheum and all other affections of the organs and membranes, they effect cures with a rapidity and permanancy which few persons would theoretically be1" lieve, but to which thousands have testified from happy experience. In colds and coughs which, if neglected, superinduce the most fatal diseasec of the lungs, and indeed tho vicera in general, these medicines, if taken' but for three or four days, never fail. Ta ken at night, they sq promote the insensible perspiration, and so relieve the system rif febrile action and feculent obstructions, as to produce a most delightful sense of conva lesence in the morning; and though the usu al symptoms, of a cold should partially return duoing the day, the repetion of a suitable dose at the next hour of bed-time will almost invariably affect perniariant relief, without further aid. Their effect upon fevers of a ; more accurate and violent kind is not lesi sure and speedy if taken in proportionable quantity; and persous retiring to bed with . inflammatory symptoms of the most alarm ing kind, will awake with the gratifying con sciousness that the fierce enemy has been overthrown, and can easily be subdued. In the same way, viceral turgesence, though long established, and visceral inflamationey however critical, will yield tho former to small and the latter, to large doses of thg .
