The proofs of its eflicacv are so numerous, so well authenticated, and id such peculiar character, that sufferers cannot reasonably hesitate to receive the pmllered aid. The Peruvian Syrup does not profess to lie a cure all, but its range is extensive, because many disea ses, apparently uulike, are intimateiy re ared, and, proceeding from one cause, may lie cured by one remedy. The class of diseases for whioh the Syrup promi ses a cure, is precisely that which has so often t?f ffed the highest order of medical skill. The facts are tangible, the witnesses accessible,and the safety and elficacv of the Syrup incontrovertible. Those who may wish for an opinion from disinter ested persons respecting the oharacter of the Syrufc, cannot f:ul to lie satisfied with the following among numerous testimonials, 111 the hands of the Agents. The signatures are those of centlemen well known in the community, and of thenighest respectability. CARD.
