From the Rev. Fred. S. Jewell, Prefester of 8>tate Normal School, Albany, N. Y. This may certify that 1 hare been, since 18H, subject to violent periodical attacks of catarrh, marked by a highly inflamed condition of the lining membranes of the cavities ot the head, p*>ducing a most distressing species of head ache tor days at a time, wholly incapacitating me trom business, and dnnng the paroxysms confining me to the bed. In some instances the inflammation has extended to the teeth, occa sioning toothache ; to the tbreat, producing hoarseness and partial loss of voice ; and and twice it bas to affected the left eye as to con fine me for a month or more to a darkened room. These attacks have been accompanied by strong febrile symptoms; by stoppage of the head, aiid, in the first stages, by watery discharges from tbe nose, subsequently becoming aend and yellow, and towards thecloee of the attack becoming bloody and purulent. I have tried medicines ot almost every kind; external ap plications to the bead, such as camphor, gin ger, hot bandage*, and fomentations of hot vinegar; snuffs of some half a dozen kinds, and other catarrhal preparations, together with in ternal remedies, such as alteratives, cathartic* and emetics. These have produced no change in tbe occurrence or character of the disease, and, in most cases, with little or no temporary relief. I had come, at length, to believe the disease to be practically beyond either cure or material alleviation. Under tbeee circumstances I was led some five months ago. to make atrial of Dr. IdRht bill's treatment.- His method at once approved itself to my judgment, as Bimple, philosophi cal, and likely to be effective. Notwithstand ing the disadvantages under which he labored, in dealing with a disease of such long stand ing. aggravated by nervous debility and dys pepsia, and constantly induced by tbe acci dents ot my professional labor, I found the treatment reaching the disease as it had never been reached before, and producing such a modification and alleviation of its character, as I had supposed imnossime. I chronicle the results tbus. Although I have been situated several times, so that I should- formerly have believed a severe attack of my catarrh inevita ble, I have escaped thus far; the symptoms of threatened attack have been very light, and have vielded to the remed* ^employed by Dr. LiigMhill, without need 01 recourse to the old hot fermentations, or emetics; and the dischar ges trom the head have resumed the original and natural condition. I count upon a com plete cure. That I have been able, however, to obtain so material a relief is to me a cause ot gratitude. In that alone, I am repaid for whatever the treatment may have cost me. I make this statement unsolicited, as a means ot acknowledging my obligations to Dr. Light hill's method of treating catarrh, and with a view to aid any who may have suffered from that disease, in forming a just opinion ot its merits, and its probable utility in their own case. Fbedk. S. .Tbwbll, Prof. State Normal School. Albany, N. Y., March 14, 1861. Catarrh Cured. From Rfv. R. P. Runtell, Lyn<t, Mats. 1 have been much troubled with Catarrh of the worst type for some twenty years. It gradually grew worse, producing cough and hoarseness, destroying the sense of smell, and hrtaking down my general health to such a degree as to compel me to resign my pastorate, and suspend public speaking. 1 made diligent nse ot the usetul remedies, such as snuffs of different kinds, nitrate of silver, tar water, olive tar, ai:d inhalations, hnt without anv salutarv effects. East sum mer I heard of Dr. Lighthill's successful mode ol treating catarrh, visited him. and put my self under hie treatment. I began immediate ly to improve, and this improvement has eone on to the present time. My catarrh has ^radu allv melted away, my cough has disappeared, my voice has become natural, and I am once more able to preach the blessed Gospel.
