The proofs of Its efi&cacy are so numerous, so well authenticated, and of such peculiar charac ter, that sufferers cannot reasonably hesitate to re ceive the proffered aid. The Peruvian Syrup does not profess to be a cure-all, but Its range Is e? tensive, became many diseases, apparently unlike, are Intimately re lated, and, proceeding from one caase, may be cured by one remedy. The class of diseases for which the Syrup pro vides a cure, Is precisely that which Las so often battled the highest order of medical skill. The facts are tangible, the witaecses accessible, and the safe;y and ettlcacy of tne Syrup Incontrovert ible. 1 have analysed the medical preparation called the Peruvian Syrup, with reference to the number and kind of active substances contained In it. and the durability of the compound as a pharmaceutl cal article. The metallic compounds of arsenic,

antimony, mercury aud zinc are not present, nor Is it possible to detect Id It the slightest Indica tion of any metallic and mineral poison its or ganic constituents do not Include opium, or any of the drugs yielding poisonous principles. The constituents, when separated, are not even acrid to tho taste. It Is a preparation scientifically and skilfully compounded, possessing all the durabil ity of a spirituous tincture, without Its objection eble qualities and the ar.tlvltyof Its leading con stituent is preserved through the judicious adap tation of Its solvent.

IN AGAIN PRESENTING TOTHE NOTICE of the public the above remedy, we feel that little apology Is needed Vast numbers In all sections of the Union are obliged to have recourse to other sources of relief th?n the Immediate pre script on of their family physician, and as cacb return of the winter season brings out a host of professedly new specifics, some good, others use less, and many decidedly dangerous. It becomes as much a matter of duty as Interest, believing this to be a remedy, combining the greatest ad vantages, with the least objections of any otner In use, to make it as extensively known as prac ticable. That such is Its character, is abundantly proved by the fact, that it lias been extensively used the last twenty years with unparalleled suc cess; that Its reputation has continued to spread and Its sale Increase, with little aid from adver tising or published lists of certificates, (which all know can as easily be had for a worthless preparation us for a me ritorious one,) that by Its own intrinsic, with the recommendat on of persons benefitted bv its use, ii has gained Its pre?ent popularity; it is not trumpeted to the wo'ld as a speclflf or cure all, but as a valuable and scientific auxiliary in pulmonary cases, ready at band, and one that nas been generally found to aiiord relief where most others have been tried without m2terlr.l benefit As such, it is recog nised by numbers of our leading physicians, who know its composition, and have been eye wit nesses of its superior effica-v, as well as by thou sands of our most respectable citizens, to most of whom reference is cheerfully permitted.
