Ac. Indeed, very few are tie diseases which a purgative medicine is not more or less required, aflH much sickness and ?offering might be prevented If a harmless bat effectual Cathartic were more freely used No person ?an feel well while a costive habit of body prevails; besides It soon generates serious and often fital diseases, which might have been avoided by the timely and jndlcons use of a good purgative. This is alike true of Colds, FeverlsV symptoms, and Bilious d- rangtmeita. They all tend to become or produce the deep seatrd and formidable distempers which load the hearses aU over the land. Hence a reliable family physic is of the first impoitance to the publie health, and this Pill has been perfected with consummate skill to meet that demand. An extensive trial of Its virtue* by Physicians, Professors, and Pa tients. has showa re nil's surpassing any thing hitherto known of any inedic!ne. Cures hpve been rfiected beyond belief, were they not sub stantiated by persons of such exalted positions and character a3 to forbid the suspicion of un truth. Among the eminent eentlem?n who have testi fied In favor of the*e Pills, we may mention: Doct. A. A. HAYES, Analytical Chemist of Boston, and State Assaver of Massachusetts, whose high Professional character is endorsed by the Hon EDWARD EVERETT, Senatorofthe United States ROBERT C. WINTHROP. Ex-Speaker of the House of Representatives ABBOTT LAWRENCE, Minister Plen , to England t JOHN B FITZPARICK. Catholic Bishop of Boston; also Dr. J. R. CHILTON, Practical Chemist o' New York City, endorsed by Hon W. L MARCY, Secretary of State WM B. ASTOR, the richest man in America S LELANDACo., Proprietors of the Metro politan Hotel, and others. These Pills, the result of long Investigation and study, are ofi'ered to the public as the best and most complete which the present state of medical science can afi'ord Tfcey are compounded uot of the drugs themselves, but of the medicinal virtues only of Vegetable remedies extracted by Chemical process In a state of purity, and com blned together in such a manner as to ins ire the best results. This system of composition for medicines has been found in Cherry Pectoralaud Pills both, to produce a more efficient remedy than had hitherto been obtained by any process The reason is perfectly obvious While by the old mode of composition, every medicine is bur dened with more or less acrimonious and injuri ous qualities, bv this each individual virtue only that Is des red f->r the curati?e effect is present All the inert and obnoxious qualities of each sub stance employed are left behind, the curative virtues onlv being retained. Hence it Is self evi dent the effects should prove as they ba*epr ved, more purely remedial, and the Pills a more pow erful antidote o disease thad any other medicine keown to the worid. They operate by their powerful influence ou the Internal viscera to purify the blood and stimulate it Into healthy action?remove the obstructions of the stomach, bowels, liver, and other organs of the body, restoring their irregular action to health, and by correcting, wherever they exl*t, such de rangements as are the first origin of disease.

It is no longer problematical, but a self-evident truth, as hundreds of our community can testify.?Bos ton Htrald. Gardner, Mc, June22, 1852. Mr II. Dtks?Dear Sir: I have used two bot tles of Prof Wood's Hair Restorntive, and can truly say it is tbe greatest discovery of the age for restoring and changing the Hair. Before using it I was a man of seventy. My hair has now at tained its original color. You can recommend it to the world without the leas; fear, as my case was one of the worst kind Yours respectfUlly, DAN'L N. MURPHY Carlylb, 111., June27, 1853. I kave used Prof O J.Wood's Hair Restore tlve, and have admired its wonderful effect. My hair was becoming, as 1 thought, prematurely gray; but by the use of the " Restorative" it has resumed its original color, and, 1 have no doubt, permanently so.

What It has done, we have witnessed upon sev eral ofosracquaintances In St. Louis. Hair once gray met our view. bl ack or brow* n as ths case I might b?, being tbe color of early manhood ; and as fine and glossy as silk, and that without any other application than tbe Restorative. If it has done this upon others, will it not do the same for any of our readers whose "frosty prows" w??re on'-e like the " raven locks" of Lothiel's warlike chlaf. if they will try it. We think so ?Jackson villi Constitutional, Or.t. 5, 1853. THE UHEATESTDISCOVERY OF THE AGE ? It seldom occurs that we notice. under any circumstances, pateut medicines, restora lives, or anything of the kind, for we have a pre judice against most of them. But candor com P;ls usto invite attention to the advertisement of rofessor Wood's Hair Restorative. We are too Juvenile to require anything of the kind, but some instances of its use have come to our knowledge which almost assures us that it is a sovereign remedy against the hair becoming prematurely gray. It is not a " Hair Dye," but upon its ap fillcation. as directed, the effect is produced upon he skin, which brings out the original colored hair, without stiffness, and gives it a glossy and natural appearance. We have seen persons who haveusea it, and are much pleased with it. Ex amine theadyertisement?Missouri Republican. O. J.
