AU Diseases of the Eye Cured with unfail
DR. W. A. SNYDER, Oculist.
DR. W. A. SNYDER S mode of treatng‘disea
ses of the Eye differs materially from the
coarse commonly pursued by Physicians. Be
lieving that most diseases of the Eye have their
origin in obstructed circulation or an impure
stale of the system, his remedies will be pre
scribed with reference to the disease witlx which
the patient may be afflicted; and by equalizing
the circulation, removing obstruction anid restor
ing the general health of the patient, the Eyes
may be permanently cured without the use of
eostic or any of the irritating applications in
general use. Dr. S. would say to those who have
exhausted the skill of all others without relief,
not to despair of a cure without giving him a
trial, for in all cases where vision is not entirely
lost, or the Eye uot completely disorganized there
js still hope.

PROPHILACTICUM, (Self-disinfecting A
geut.) a sure preventive against Gonorrhea
and Syphilitic Diseases, and an unsurpassed rem
edy for all Venereal, Scrofulous, Grangrenous,
and Cancerous Ulcers. Foetid Discharges from
Vagina, Uterus, and Urethra, and all Cutaneous
Eruptions and diseases. For sale at Dr. Czap
kay's Office, Armory Hall, corner of Sacramento
and Montgomery streets, San Francisco. As in
oculation is a preventive Small Pox, so Dr. L. J.
Czapkay’s Prophilacticum, a preventive against
Syphilitic and Gonorrhceical Diseases. With
this intention, Dr. C. makes the public acquaint
ed with his excellent Phrophilactium. Syphilis
is one of the most dangerous diseases with which
the human body can be afflicted, whose horrid
consequences are not limited to an individual, or
to a family, but to three and five generations—
Consequences which are only too often the can- e
of destroyed physical and mental health, of pre
mature death, of lunacy, idiocy and suicide. In
order to limit the extension of Syphilis, illicit in
tercourse between the sexes must be avoided, or
remedies must be used to preventc.-tickc, «vi f h
the Syphilitic poison. Dr. T
philacticnm has beer on
nent physicians a.

over Europe and parts of the United States of
North America. The effect of the far-famed rem
edy is very simple,and uninjurious to the system;
it combines chemically with the venereal poison,
and through that the poison is neutralized and
its power destroyed in such a manner that con
tagion cannot take place if the directions are
strictly followed. Thereby, ye young and old,
male and female, get of this valuable remedy, or
you expose yourselves to the dangers aud conse
quences of the horrid disease. Syphilis, and gen
eration after generation will suffer for your apa
thy—not saying anything about time and money
that you lose in getting cured of it. Dr. L. J.
Czapkay’s Prophilacticum is also an unsurpass
ed remedy and cure in all the following diseases:
Venereal* Scrofulous, Gangrenous, and Cancer
ous Ulcers, Foetid Discharges from the Vagina,
Uterus, and Urethra, and all Cutaneous Eruptions
and Diseases. The Prophilacticum is in* the
shape of a cake of soap, and is used externally,
whether as a preventive or curative; consequent
ly, in the latter case must be combined with in
ternal medicines to eradicate the poison already
in the system. For that purpose, Dr. Czapkay
will supply, free, every one with a prescription
for his valuable compound Blood Purifier, so that
every one who suffers from disease can get cured
of it, without being imposed upon by quacks or
self-styled Venereal Doctors. L. J. Czapkay
would inform the public that his experience is
extensive in all diseases to which the human body
is subject, and his reputation as a medical advis
er stands high, having been regularly educated
as a physician and surgeon, and being a gradu
ate of the Medical University at Pesth, Hungary,
occupying in the late Hungarian Revolutionary
War the high position of Chief Physician to the
20th regiment of Honveds, Chief Surgeon to the
Military Hospital of Pesth, and late Lecturer on
Diseases of the Urinary Organs, and diseases of
women and children. ’Pherefore, don't hesitate
a moment, all ye who suffer from disease, or wish
to prevent the contagion of the horrid poison,
but go at once, or address a line to Dr. Czap

Co-net C23!>) JVashirgton Street and JVaverly
JARED D. BROWN, M. D., the only regularly
educated and competent Physician now adver
tising in California. The first Physician to es
tablish a dispensary on the Pacific Coast for the
cure of malacle secrets. The only one that can
be relied upon to perform radical cures, and in
whom you can place implicit confidence.
If you have disease, you that are wise, go to
Dr. J. D. Brown, and escape the misery that will
surely follow if you place yourselves in the hands
of notorious quacks.
TO THE PUBLIC.
Notwithstanding a long and successful experi
ence, it is important to impress upon the minds
of the public, that the celebrated remedies of Dr.
Brown are the most valuable discoveries with
which the science of medicine has ever been en
dowed, and it is to those who have suffered long
from that terrible disease, aggravated by the
murderous rotiue of quacks, that we would ad
dress, as well as those who have recently con
tracted the affection and wish to obtain immedi
ate and permanent relief. The remedies have
stood the test for years, and the multitude of ag
gravated cases that have been cured, speak elo
quently for themselves,and will always stifle the
vain effort of calumny or malevolence. When
we use medicine there are two objects in view,
the one to make use of such means as will per
fectly and permanently cure the disease, and the
other to avoid such remedial agents as are injuri
ous to the constitution.
The preparations of Dr. Brown have never
been known to fail, and they are all composed
of pure and unadulterated drugs, which may be
taken at all times and unadultered drugs, which
may lie taken at all times and under any circum
stances with perfect impunity, and instead of de
liberating the patient, rendering him weak and
languid, as most remedies used for those com
plaints do, they give tone to the nervous system;
increase the appetite, and in a word produce a
healthy action of all the organs.
The Svphai.itic Virus produces different ef
fects in different individuals, according to the pre
disposition of the patient, and any of the follow
ing symptoms may arise from the inoculation of
the poison. No part of the human body is ex
empt from the ravages of the disease. In some
donstitations its progress may be slow, but rare,
and without prompt and judicious treatment, an
ignoble death will surely follow. First, the pri
mary ulcer, acute and chronic catarrhs of the
urethra, the vagina, the eyes, the nose, the ear,
the intestines, tumours of different natures, ab
scesses, fistulas, and excressences of the genital
parts, inflamed, thickened and ulcerated, and
cancerous eyelids, tears running from the eyes,
and those organs more or less injured in their
structure and functions; the transparent corner
obscured and changed, thickening of the glassy
humor; concretion and darkuing of the cristaline,
the lachrymal fistula, diminution or loss of sight,
inflammation and ulceration of the inner ear, at
tended with more or less acute pain; the cares
of the osselets inclosed in the cavity of the tym
panum; discharge of matter, of sanie, serous mu
cus, or of blood from the auditory passage, at
tended by an insupportable fetid smell, continu
al drumming in the ears, hardness or entire loss
of hearing; inflammation of the mucus membrane
which lines the mouth and nostrils, ulceration of
the roof the mouth, the tongue, gums, uvula, ton
sils, the back of the mouth, the larynx; fungous
ness and cancer of the nostrils, caries of the
bones of the palate, the cartilages of the largns,
the bones of the nose, vomer, deformity of the
face, change, alteration or loss of the voice, ero
sion of the gums, caries, loosening and dropping
out of the teeth, fetid smell of the breath, the
skin covered with spots, the form, extent and col
or of which vary indefiiteiy, humorous, dry or
humid eruptions, with or without itching, chaps
and fissures, vegetations or excressences of all
kinds; the rising and loss of the epiderme, pim
ples and pustules on different parts of the body,
the face and edge of the hair; ulcers of the worst
character; tumors more or less hard; pains al
most insupportable in all parts of the body, and
particularly in the limbs, similar to those of gout
and rheumatism; painful or indolent swellings of
the lymphatic glands; violent pains in the head;
trembling of the limbs; loss of sleep; cough; dif
ficulty of breathing; palpitation of the heart; ul
ceration of the lungs; hypocondriac melancholy;
the abdominal vicera swollen or obstructed; dro£
sy; homorrage; weakness; languor; slow fever;
diarrhoea; cold sweats; loss of flesh; consumption.
Such are the effects of the poison upon the an
imal economy, when once introduced into the
system, saying nothing of the tortures of the
mind to which the syphalitic patient is subjected.
Young men why do you suffer when you can he

upon by noted impires of our city? Have your

preparation was discovered by Dr. Brown over
three years ago, and since that time it has been
extensively used, and has never been known to

it, and many druggistt have copied the recipe or
counterfeited the original. The Anti-Morbus

THE CHLORIDE OF GOLD
For Primary Syphilis. How long have the
medical profession tried in vain to discover some
the reputical agent that could be relied upon to
cure a disease more to be dreaded than all others
combined. Some Quack Doctors advertise to cure
venereal diseases without the use of mercury.—
But their statements are false. We have taken
pains to collect the receipts of some who make
a great noise, and we find that they use the lo
dine of Mercury for everything, whether it is
proper or not, and since we find them misrepre
senting in this particular, we have reason to sus
pect them and “Id omne genus” in all their pre
Gentlemen, there never was a remedy capable
of curing the disease without mercury, until the
discovery of the Chloride of Gold, and we submit
it to the test, having thoroughly tried it, and
know it to possess all the qualities attributed to it.
Dr. Christian says:—The Chloride of Gold is
cajiable of curing Syphalis under all its forms,
and that in its general operations on the system,
it possesses many advantages over mercury. It
is eflicacious, yet gentle. It may be administered
with perfect safety at all seasons of the year, and
under any complication of the disease. ’ Persons
of either sex may be put upon it with equal safe
ty, the only caution enjoined is strict temperance.
In other respects the patient is not required to
change his mode of living.
Dr. Samuel L. Mitchell, the distinguished sur
geon of New York, speaks in the following words:
The Chloride of Gold possesses admirable vir
tues against Syphalis. The patient gets well un
der the operation of the medicine, with incom
parably less inconvenience, without the hazard
of a sore mouth or salic ation, and with very lit
tle wear and tear of the constitution. I consider
the introduction of this preparation in common
use, as one of the greatest improvements in mod
ern medicine, and I wish it was already as uni
versal as the malady it cures.
Other distinguished members of the medical
profession have given testimony of the great val
ue of the remedy, the statements of whom we
have in our possession.

DR. L, J. CZAPKAY'S
fnir P?!rical &Surciral litslihlt,
ARMORY HALL BUILDING,
Corner of Montgomery and Sacramento streets,
ESTABLISHED FOR THE PERMANENT CURE OF ALL
FRITATE AND CHRONIC DISEASES, A- THE
SUPFRLoSION OF QUACKERY.
DR. L. J. CZAPKAY, late in the Hungarian
Revolutionary War, Chief Physician of the
20th regiment of Honveds, Chief Surgeon to the
Military Hospital of Pesth, and late lecturer on
diseases of Urinary Organs, and Diseases of Wo
men and Children, would most respectfully in
form the public of California, that he has open
ed an Institute for the cure of Chronic Diseases
of the Lungs, Liver, Kidneys, Digestive and Cen
tal Organs, and all Private Diseases, viz: Syph
ilitic Ulcers, Gonorrhoea, Gleet, Strictures, Sem
inal Weakness, and all the horrid consequences
of self-abuse; and he hopes that his long experi
ence and successful practice of many years will
ensure him a share of public patronage. By the
practice of many years in Europe and the Uni
ted States, and during the Hungarian war and
campaigns, he is enabled to apply the most effi
cient and successful remedy against diseases of
all kinds. He uses no mercury—charges moder
ate—treats his patients in a correct and honora
ble way—has references of unquestionable verac
ity from men of known respectability and high
standing in society’. All parties consulting him,
by’ letter or otherwise, will receive the best and
gentlest treatment, and implicit secrecy.
TO FEMALES.—When a female is in trouble,
or afflicted with diseases —as Weakness of the
Back and Limbs, Pain in the Head, Dimness of
sight, Loss of Muscular Power, Palpitation of
the Heart, Irritability, Nervousness, extreme U
rinary Difficulties, Derangement of Digestive
Functions, General Debility, Vaginitis, all dis
eases of the Womb, Hysteria, Sterility, and all
other diseases peculiar to females, they should
go at once to the celebrated Female Doctor, L. J.
Czapkay, at his Medical Institute, and consult
him about their trouble and disease. Let no false
delicacy prevent you, but apply’ immediately’, and
save yourselves from painful sufferings and pre
mature death. All married ladies, whose deli
cate health or other circumstancys do not allow
to have an increase in their families, should call
at Dr. Czapkay’sMedical Institute, Armory Hall,
corner of Montgomery and Sacramento streets,
and they will receive every possible relief and
help. The Doctor's offices are so arranged that
he can be consulted without the fear of molesta
tion. The attention of the reader is called to the
following: A lady of high standing in society,
and great respectability, published a card in the
Philadelphia Sunday Dispatch, Sept. 14th, 1851,
which is as follows:
“A CARD.—The undersigned feels it her duty
to express her heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Czap
kay, for the successful cure of herself and child.
The latter, having been afflicted by a severe at
tack of ‘Cholera Infantum,’ was given up as incu
rable by some of the most celebrated physicians,
when she called on Dr. Czapkay, of whom she had
heard very favorable reports, & who, after a short
period, restored the child to perfect health. En
couraged by this extraordinary result, she sought
advice herself, for the scrofulous malady with
which she had been afflicted for eight years, and
which withstood the treatment of the best phy
sicians in Europe,and America. But Dr. Czap
kay has succeeded in affording her permanent re
lief, so that she can now enjoy life, which, for
eight years, had lost all charms to her. She
therefore deems it due to herself and to all sick
and afflicted, to recommend Dr. Czapkay us one
of the most skillful physicians within the United
States. MRS. CAROLINE GRAY,
Cor. Walnut & 7th sts, Philadelphia, Pa.
A. Glaser, Notary Public, 126, 7th street.”
The following is an editorial notice in the Bos
ton Daily Times of August sth, 1853:
A Skillftl Physician.— Dr. L. J. Czapkay
has opened an office at No. 16 Pleasant street, in
this city. Dr. C. is a Hungarian by birth, and
was connected with the patriotic army as physi
cian and surgeon uuder the patronage of Kos
suth. He combines with a finished education and
the most refined and agreeable manners, the most
extensive scientific abilities and skill in his pro
fession, and we feel much pleasure in recom
mending him to our citizens as a physician and
gentleman. Dr. Czapkay has spent some time in
Philadelphia, where he won the confidence and
friendship of those with whom he became ac
quainted. Among his friends in Philadelphia,
are gentlemen of the highest respectability, with
whom we are personal ly acquainted. He had an
extensive practice in Hungary, before the Aus
trians and Russians compelled him to leave it for
being found guilty of excessive patriotism. We
hope he will receive the patronage due a man of
so eminent capacity.
The above are only a few of the many testimo
nials which Dr. Czapkay has in possession, but
cannot publish for want of space. All consulta
tions, (by letter or otherwise,) free. Address

Highly Important to the Afflicted.
San Francisco, April 7th, 1855.
To Dr. L. J. Czapkay, San Francisco.
Dear Sir: —Before having made application to
you, I had called upon several physicians, from
whom I obtained but little satisfaction. I was
told by one that my disease was incurable, and
that the headache, dizziness, nervousness, timid
ity, self-distrust,loss of memory, love of solitude,
wanderings of my mind, and sometimes partial
insanity, were evidences of organic disease of
the brain, for which medicine would be of litte
service. Having brought on three symptoms hy
my own folly, I was almost frantic with despair
when I saw your advertisement and called upon
you. How great has been my relief; all the above
symptoms have been relieved, besides which I
have recovered my bodily health. Believing that
there are many suffering m the same manner, you
have my permission to publish ihis letter, and
can refer any one to me for confirmation.

vain boastings; men without character or honi
who feel very sore because Dr. Young by expos

community. Their time is short; like the mus-h
room, they spring up in a night, they prey upon
the unwary for a short space and then disapppl,
and start off on some other track, to rob the pub
lie, for they are naturally dishonest, and noon
will trust them in a respectable business “
J. C. YOUNG, M.D.
PLACERVILLE, May 28,1.955.
»R. J. C. YOUNG— Dear Sir: —Words can
not express the gratitude I feel is due to
vou for the benefit 1 have received from your trv
ly invaluable course of treatment of my
while prescribing for me. I think I cannot Justi
fy myself without giving this small token of
thankfulness and esteem, for you have been the
means of saving my life, and restoring to n: r
that health which I had so long despaired fl f
again enjoying. I had for a long time, (four
years,) been troubled with that most dreadful
scourge to young people, seminal weakness or
nocturnal emissions, which so weakened me in
both body and mind, that I was obliged to gi Te
up mining altogether. I consulted one of the
best physicans (so called,) in the mountain dfe.
tricts, and after a careful examination of my case,
he gave me medicines. I continued under his
treatment for three months without receiving anv
benefit, in fact I grew worse from week to week"
until at last I got discouraged and asked him for
his opinion. I told him not to fear to tell me the
whole truth, for I should rather know the wont
at once, than to live in suspense. T had Inst *
bout thirty pounds of flesh, and knew that he at
least could not cure me, and as I was then guim?
on, death must soon count me as one of its vic
tims. This physician then told me that rnv Case
was incurable; that I had better not take any
more medicines. He said I was in a decline whick
was fast tending to pulmonary consumption.
I then despaired of obtaining any relief, and
saw that unless something was done’to mitigate
the complaint that I should be numbered with
the dead, or what is worse, be a raving mania. .
Happening to see one of your books, the Pocket
iEsculapius, I made up my mind at once to call
and consult you with the determination of trying
once more to get relief if yon would undertake
the case. Oh, how thankful lam for that deter
mination ! I commenced taking the medicines
prescribed by you, and I am now, through their
healing pow : ers, restored to perfect health. I
shall not fail to recommend you to any of my
friends that require assistance, for a man that
can cure a case as bad as mine was, can cure ev
ery disease that flesh is heir to, if their is life
enough left in the system to build upon.
Receive my most sincere and heartfelt thanks
and esteem. S. W. REIGILLEA.

HP send me some of the medicines you prescri
bed in my case. I have a friend here who is
troubled in exactly the same way that I «m-
He has nightly emissions, ringing noise in his
head, weak back, loss of memory, and is general
ly debilitated; he is discouraged and has not con
tidence enough to enable him" to call and sec you,
I told him how I was, and that my friends al!
said I was in consumption, and the doctors up
here gave me up aud advised me to go home to
die, but instead of going home I called upon you,
and here I am as well as any of them and as like
ly to live a long time yet, with strength enough
to work with the strongest of them. Doctor I
will send every one to you that looks to me hi
though he needed a physician. It shall not be
my fault if any one dies for want of medical
treatment. 1 will do all I can to keep the afflict
ed away from those pests <4 society, yclept pro
fessors and high sounding titled men, who,if the
facts were known, are med who left their country
for their country's good. Publish this letter doc

humbugged me may see it and sleep bad for one
night. Truly yours,

GRASS VALLEY, June 3rf, 1555.
OKAR SlR—The last medicine you fent m*
has none the business. lam now perfect
ly well, and wish to give my testimony to the
public in favor of your skill. 1 was troubled
with a complication of diseases brought on by
that soul-destroying habit of self-pollution, and
complaints caught by connection with bad per
sons of the ypposite sex. 1 had been treated by
some of the best physicians as well as those
quacks who infest the state, aud by them all giv
en up as incurable; bnt being advised by a friend
who had been henefitted by y our scientific treat
ment to call upon you. I did so, and feel grate
ful to him for the information, hut still more
thankful to you for the cure and good advice yea
gave me as well as the efficacious medicines yon
prescribed, if any of the afflicted should see
this, lot them ho sure that it is a voluntary offer
ing ingratitude for the blessings of health receiv
ed from you, and also given with a fervent wish
that it may be of service to those suffering as 1
did; and now may God bless you in your effort
to lessen the sufferings of the human family, and
may all good citizens assist you to drive from the
community these leeches that prey upon the pub
lic by false protensions of eminence in the medi
cal world. Yours eternally,
To Dr. J. C. Young.

viable medical works which, upon reading, instill

solved to try once more, and thank Goo for that
resolve;' I am now a well man, rejoicing in per
fect health, and daily growing stronger. Dear
