Affections of the Liver, Dropsy, Neuralgia, Bron chitis and Consumptive Tendencies, Disorder ed state of the Blood, Boils, General Debility, and all Diseases which require a Tonic and A Iterative medic ine is beyond Question. The proofs of its etficacy are so numerous, so well authenticated, and of such peculiar character,*that sufferers cannot reasonably hesitate to reoeive the proffered aid. The Peruvian Syrup does not profess to fie a cure all, but its range is extensive, because many disea ses, apparently unlike, are intimately related, and, proceeding from one cause, may be cured by one remedy. The class of diseases for which the.Syrup promi ses a cure, is precisely that which has so often 1*1 fled the highest order of medical skill. The facts nre tangible, the witnesses accessible,and the safety and efficacy of the Syrup incontrovertible. Those wno may wish for an opinion from disinter ested persons respecting the character of the Syrup, cannot fail to be satisfied with the followiigr among numerous testimonials, 111 the hands of the Agents. The signatures are thoso of gentlemen well known in the community, and of the highest respectability. ^ CARD.

That such is its character, is abnndnntly proved by the fact, that it has l?een extensively used the last twenty yeats with unparalleled success; that its reputation has continued to spread and its sale increase, with little aid from advertising or published lists of cer tificates, (winch all know can as easily be had for a worthless prepnration as for a meritorious one.) that by its own intrinsic merit, with the recommendation of persons benefited by its use. it has gamed its pre sent popularity ; it is not trumpeted to the world as a specific or cure all, but as a valuable and scientific auxiliary in pulmonary eases, ready at hand, and one that has been generally found to alford relief where most others have Iieca tried without material benefit.
