The body of ?. J.rr~? woman stripped of all but the under cl? ,jj' evidently murdered, was found in an open . ??* It was recognized as that of Sarah C. Bloom 7 several persons, among whom was her own sis * ter who indentifled it by certain marks and phys ical peculiarities. On the strength of thisinaenti ftcation. a young man who had last been seen in the company of Miss Bloom was arrested and uspicion was already building up against him a charge of murder founded upon what appeared to be pretty conclusive circumstantial evidence. But at this crisis Miss Bloom appeared herself, and of course, put an end to the supposition that she had been murdered. The most curious part of the case was the remarkable resemblance be tween Miss Sarah Bloom and the l?ody supposed to have been hers. The points of resemblance are desc'ibed as follows: " The l>ody had a scar on tlie left eyebrow pre cisely where' Sarah has one; the >H>ay had a cut <>?1 *f-.e ir.ain fitter ?f the left hand precisely where Sanh has one of the same character ; the b^dy has a *r:iaU black mole half way be tween the *??*'?> -uid the knee, orttfce shm heme. eTactly when' Ijas one: but sfranjjsst of all, the body has t\tc '->?s pf ttie 'eft lbr< jgr^wn together, precisely like 5"r*Vs, except that Sa rah's are not grown together ?o ftr down on the j?int: the toes of both T?-et of tli^* Nvt}\ like Sa rah's, were pressed together fium^*?*f'trt{tight shoes, and !>arah wears a coral rihL' on /4a!'the ^nger f<oni which on the corpse a rin^ hac *?*ii s'ripprd.

The proofs of its efficacy are so namerous, so well auOientioated, and of such peculiar character, tliat sufferers cannot reasonably hesitate to receive the proffered aid. The Peruvian Syrup does not profess to be a rurt all, but its range is extensive, because manv 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 whieh has so often haf fled the highest order of medical skill. The Ihcts are tangible, the witnesses accessible, and the safety and efficacy of the Syrup incontrovertible. Those who may wish for an opinion from disinter ested persons respecting the character of tho Syrup, cannot fail to be satisfied with the following among numerous testimonials, in the hands of the Agents.
