jINEW YORK HKHALI). Sew l'ork, 7 linrwlay, April 41, 1843, nego>Ulloii* Willi EiiKlnnd-The AsliburIon gpeclul MU?lun-Pe#ee and Friend* , ?l?lp. According to the best information from Washingtun and elsewhere, it is now almost certain that, with an ordinary share of common sense and common prudence, ull the difficulties between England and :he United States will be settled and terminated by the ashburton mission, and in a manner satislaclory to both countries. The Boundary Question is already in a fair train, and according to our accounts from England and Africa, the right of search cannot form any point of diflereuce. By an arrival at Salem, we learn that on a recent occasion the British hrig of war Brisk twice boarded the brig Mermaid, of Salem, on the coast ol Africa. The Captain of the Mermaid says that he was " treated, on both occasions, with great civility by the boarding officer, and no attempt was made to March his vessel. The officer would not even enter the cabin, without a particular invitation- Captain C. was informed by British officers, at St. Helena, that their government had given precise orders to abstain from proceedings of an offensive nature, such as the removal of hatches, and similar proceedings which have been complained of heretofore, liven in the British colony of St. Helena, public opinion was strongly expressed against the formet seizure of the bark Jones, of Salem." This seems to correspond with the principles laid down in Lord Aberdeen's lettsr to Mr. Everett, aboat the orders sent out to American cruisers not to molest American merchantmen. So far, so well. The other points of difference are matter* of indemnity, involving no principles, but mere small amounts, not sufficient to create a ripple on the surface of society. But the most important movement made by England, calculated to cement the peace of the two countries, is the new modification of the British tariff", proposed by Sir Robert Peel. This tariff'takes away the ground on which the ultras of both countries stood?and comes downwards to the principles of free trade and reciprocity, to an extent far beyond the hopes of the most sanguine. If this now tariff' goes into operation in England, it will vastly increase the trade between the two countries, and bind them both in more amicable bonds than any anticipated. We fancy, then, that Lord Ashburton will find every thing smooth and agreeable in his mission, and that it will terminate to the satisfaction of both countries.

For once Col. Webb of the regular army is right. He estimated oar force at 23. Well, no matter. If only 22 persons will vote for our ticket, we have 22,000 persons who take the Herald at two cents a piece?and that's a devilish sight better than any quantity of dirty votes that make men quarrel. The Common Council?It is now ascertained that the locofocoaare determined to hold on to the Sih ward, as it has been decided by their inspectors, rejecting the gum tickets. They also intend to refuse Mr- Allerton his seat as Assistant Alderman for the 12th ward; and to entirely annul the election in the t>th ward. This, as a matter of course, is producing a great deal of excitement, and a great deal of interest all over the city. And one of the immediate results is, a libel suit against a party paper the "Tribune," which will probably end in an indictment; and no doubt cause a series of libel nuts, and indictments all round, before they get through with it. This will produce a terrible collision shortly. Already, the clubs on both sides are organising for the coming contest, and getting brimfull of light; and therefore in the firet week of May we may expect terrible smashing work, and any quantity of broken heads. "Blood will (low," in this quarrel, and there is no mistake about it. State Credit.?Every day only adds to the credit of the Stale, and the value ol its stock, since the Legislature passed recent measures and adjourned ? Vet (ierernor Seward and his friends, who run the State debt up from 7 to 25 millions, in three have saved New York from the catastrophe of Mis- ^ piseippi, Pennsylvania and Maryland. Politician^ of such narrow views cannot deceive intelligence.? Thurlow Weed cannot change his policy, or give up his soap sudsOccav Steamers amp the Archimedes Screw.? We have seen a model of a vessel, with the Archediag Screw, invented by Smith of London, and should think, that a propeller, having so much power, would send a ship through the water with great speed. This model is in the possession of Captain Russell Sturgis, No. 54 Pine street, who is the agent for the screw in this country. It should be seen by every scientific and naval man. It is so compact that it can be applied to vessels already built, and its size can be increased for vessels of three thousand tons, and diminished for vessels small enough to run through our canals. It is applied in the dead wood of a vessel, occupies none of the important part of the interior, and is an aux iliary in steering. It can be disconnected, andoff-rs no retardiation to a vessel when under canvass. And as the whole is sub nerged, no shot can rea.-h it, and a vessel with such a orooeller is. therefore, out of danger and cannot be crippled. We look upon it as a mo-t important invention, and do not hesitate to say that in the course of a tew years alt ocean steamers, and especially war stean." ers. will be propelled by submersed machinery,such as this screw. As it is to be applied to the great iron steamer building at Bristol, England, everythi ng relating to its performance will be read with attention. We thereiore give the foil iwing IFromthe Bristol (F.ng.) Magazine J The opinion we originally expressed in favor of this excellent invention, we cor diaily at this period reiterate; and if we ha.l any misgivings ou the subject in the earlier stagei of the experiment of the Archimedes, we have uone now On a previous occasion, we noticed a small vessel railed the Princess Roysl. which was fitted wtfH "amith'i orni^ll^r ?m.iUs-^? -a n_ _s_. ?i orijnion wnn compete and triumphant ?ucce??

Wokth Sccino.?LiaguerreV Magical P.ctures.Theee gems are perfect novelties in their m ay. Who is Dorr Mahommip 1?This is easily answered. About one hundred years since, Nadir Snah, monarch of Persia, invaded Upper Indiv, some of his troops were Atlghans, commanded by Ahmed Shah. On returning to Persia, Nadir was assassinated- Ahmed atole a large quantity of his treasure?went off home to the mountains?called hinuelf "Pearl of the Age," and was made firet king of Aflghan. He invaded India four times, and died in 177:1. His aon, Timour Shah, reigned a quarter of a century, and died about 18(10. Fjur of his sons, llumaioon, Shah Zamaun, Mahmoud, and Shah Shaojah, then fought for the throne. Mumaioon seized on Candahar. Shah Zamaun seized on Cabul, and put out Humaioon's eyes. Shoojah was made Zatnaun's jewel keeper at Peshawur. Mahmoud, who was nude Governor of Herat, then seized on Candahar. fought and seized his brother Zamaun, and pat his eyes out, and was made king, At last Shah Shoojah revolted, dethroned Mahmoud, and put him in prison. Mahmoud made his escape, raited an army, at the head of which he placed Futteh Khan, and took Candahar, in 1810. Shah Shoojah fought them, was beaten in two bloody battles, and flew to Runjeet Sing, at Punjaub. Mahmoud was made king again, and then brutally put out the ejea of Futteh Khan, and afterwards put him to death. Futteh Khan had three brothers; one then seized Cabul, one seized Candahar; the third seized Cashmere. The first one v. as named Dost Mahommed; between them they killed Mahmoud. Dost Mdhornroed then, under pretence of protecting himself against the aggressions ol Runjeet Sing, in( vited lius-ia to his assistance- Accordingly, a Russian general led the Persians against Herat, and this brought the British down on Dost Mahommed, to dethrone him and put Shah Shoojah back on the throne. Tub ArrsHiii War.?Up to 1839, this war had cost the Butijh government $60,000,000. Since then, it has cost $15,01)0,000 every year. Tub Forty fourth British Regiment?This regiment, which has been annihilated by the Affghans, i* but too well known in this country. This was the regiment that formed part of Gen. Packenham's army at the battle of New Orleans; it was then under Col. Mullen*, and was disgraced there for not bringing up thefascinei in time; and to tht9 circumtance, the disasters of that fatal day were attributed. The regiment then lost their colors, and were ?ent to India to regain them. They have all perished. Five Foists Literature ?If you desire to revel in the midst of Five Points literature, read the " Courier and Enquirer," and the " New York American." These journals daily contain columns of the lowest, most vulgar, most blackguard, most ferocious libels against the President of the United States. If the chief magistrate were an inmate of Sing Sing State Prison, he could not be treated with more indignity than he is by the clique that governs these journals. Such newspapers are a disgrace to the age?a plague spot in society?a moral deformity of the times. None but the lowest and most debased beings-beings lost to all honor and principle?bankrupts in fortune, in character, in morals?could originate such filth, or luxuriate in such slanders upon the honest chief magistrate of nearly twenty]millions of people. From Caaaccas, S. A -We understand that Mr. Theodore Lacombe, son of Doctor Adolphus Lacombe, a member of the Medical Society of the City of New York, has been appointed by Mr. David, the French Charge d'AfTuires, Secretary to the French legation at Caraccas, Venezuela. Presentment or Plate.?An.elegant silver vase, of Grecian form, and most finished workmanship was last evening, in the very middle , of the dance, presented to Mr. Charruaud, at his rooms in White street,by his friends and pupils. It was manufac tured by Thomson, of William street. The following is the inscription :? presented to IMR. J. CHARRUAUD j By his friends and pupils, As a testimonial of the esteem Which they entertain for him as a Gentleman, And as a manifestation of the high respect in which they hold him as a Teacher of the art of Dancing. New York, April, 1342. This is dancing to some purpose. The Ball went IolV with great eclat. The ladies were beautiful? the gentlemen elegant. Succr.ss in the Silk Culture.?We notice in the Farmers'Register,published at Petersburg, Va-, the following remarks in a letter to the Editor, from Robert Sinclair, of Baltimore, a member of the Society of Friends:?" I succeeded admirably in raising silk last season; I sold for cash to the amount of #337, and I am fixing to raise largely this season, having a good house well fixed, plenty of trees, and eighty ounces of good eggs; hands about me who have now had some experience, and from some account of costs kept last season, 1 am confident that after having the three above requisites, I can raise silk in the cocoon state at 81 per bushel, or say, what when reeled will make one pound." Ladies' Judgment Seat?Gentlemen Attend ? Savaoes Come Forth?Goths be Romanized.?The important trial commenced on Monday evening, April 18th, at 7 o'clock, before the Ladies' Judgment Seat, at the Hall, 187 Bowery, to try, on its merits, if the Hudson Fire Insunince Company or any other party or persons, have any just claim for or against the Bethel Baptist Burying Place, or not. Also,if any company, party,or power on earth, have a right,in accordance with bible equity, or female jurisprudence, to remove the dead fr?m a regular burying place, under circumstances which the Hudson Fire Insurance Company have recently and boldly threatened to do front the Bethel Baptist Burying place, or not. This trial i? rnntinnpH pxiptv In.r pvpninir nt fh* unmp hour and place, until the facta are fully known, and the great cause be decided on, by this high and honorable, and fair and lovely tribunal. A splendid reasoning address, mixed with bright bits of poetry, will be delivered on the subject, at the opening of each session ol the Court, by some of our most dis tinguished male and female orators, as they are engaged in this cau->c. The public, with all surviving relatives of the dead, are invited.to attend. Alderman Purdy is to preside, if he can. Spi undid Preaching.?The Kev.

The various medical and surgical ciinujur* recent. ly established continue in operation, and with th< exception of l)r- Pattison's, attract crowds of stu dents. Dr. Parker's climque for surgical cases was re markably well attended last Monday The Profes sor operated on several cases of strabismus, and per formed eeveral other important and interesting ope rations. Dr Levett's cliniqite for Diseases of the Chest, i deservedly considered a great attraction by the pro fession. Many of our most distinguished physician attend it. The cases are selected with great judg ment, and the students are making the most rapii J and satisfactory progress on the use of the nether cope. l>r. Bulkley's clinique for cutaneous dise&seB i also a very valuable school of practical instruclioi in a class of affections which must of all other. b< seen, in order to be understood. A great number o remarkably interesting cases where exhibited?thei peculiar characteristics pointed out with great clear ness, and their oppropriate treatment accurately am lucidly detailed. Besides these cliniquti, several courses of lecture are given at the Crosby street college, at a mere nc minal fee. These combined and unrivalled attraction have collected a very numerous class of student from all parts of the Union and Canada. A grea revolution is certainly going on. The Lanctl is re porting these lectures and cliniquet, and is contri buting its efficient aid in advancing this great move tnent for the reform of medical education, whicl has thus so auspiciously commenced at one of ou oldest and most respectable colleges. Dr. Patinson's clinique, we regret to say, was ver poorly attended on Saturday. The Professor pre cribed tor two or three babies very much afllictet with the "bowel complaint." Dr- P. manfully struggles through his difficult task of regenerating this clinique- Indeed we don't know which most t< admire?Dr. Moll's magnanimity in leaving the fielc to Dr. Pattison?or Dr. Patttson's neroic possessor of it, and? " Greatly falling with a falling state!" However, we rejoice to see the war kept up between the two schools, and now that they have the Lancet to show fair play, and prevent either of the belligerent parties from availingjthemselves of any tric kery, we hope they will light it out, to the utter discomfiture of all quacks, and the good of the public health Foukiekism.?His Birthdav ?A few amiable modern philosophers, blessed or cursed with a ridiculous weakness, have latterly been making a great fuss about Fourieriam ; laying down plans for the entire remodelling and reconstruction of society, and showing (hat every soul in the world has been living, moving, and breathing upon wrong principles for the last six thousand years ; and that they alone have just hit upon the true mode of enjoying life, by eating bran bread, adopting Mrs. Gove's self-restraining policy in matrimonial matters, eating squashes instead of beef, and doing and not doing Heaven only knows what. These modern squash philosophers whose brains are as weak as their bodies, have mixed up a little transcendentalism, a little universalism, a little phrenology, a little Grahamism, a little mormonisrn, a little squashism, a little teetotalism, and not a little infidelity; and cut of these precious ingredients they have coined a new code of morals and manners for the regulation of society, and a new dictionary of long, badly constructed, novel and ridiculous phrases by which they hope to mislead the million. They lately gave a sort of squash and cold water celebration in honor of Fourier's birthday at 50 cents a head ; and as the dinner was well worth 62J cents, of course the table was filled. At this dinner I one of these wags gave the following beautiful sne cimen of pure nonsense, as a sample of their new philosophic nomenclature Attractive Industry, the Harmony of the Tassions, and Attractions proportioned to Destinies?words of power to bid the jarring discords and wild uproars of our falsely-organized sosieties " stand ruled." This is a fair sample of the whole affair, and this p-ecious jargon and piece of folly they think to cram down the throats of intelligent beings in this age of steam and political purity: It will not do. And the fact is,that their great apoetle, and demi-god,Fourier, was one of those miserable philosophic humbugs, whose brain wa9 composed of the infidel particles upheaved at the time of the French Revolution, and he himself, floated like one of Professor I.yell'e bolder formations in a coat of ice over the hills and dales of true social life, down the ocean of time, knowing nothing practically of all that he passed over, and at last died with his brain filled with one large magot, which has since emerged from the chrysalis state, and is now a big white butterfly in this city, feeding on squashes, and is called Fourier ism. The whole of this nonsense must soon explode from the weight of its own folly. It is impossible to induce a large body of rational beings to herd together like convicts in a jail or paupers, in a workhouse, having ill tViinrra i/irfnalltr in nnmmAn Tliio maa t*iarl Ki the celebrated Dale at New Lanark, and failed ; i waa tried by Robert Owen at New Harmony, ant failed. That remarkable agriculturist, Norman, th< great Sussex Gardner, tried it at Hurstperpoint, ant failed; that truly great man, philanthropist, and pro found philosopher, William Allen, the chemist o London, tried it in several places, and failed in all and lost a large fortune ; Lady Byron tried it in Lei cestershire on her own estate and failed ; Williair Pare, the great radical of Birmingham, tried it witl his numerous ao-operatiye societies, and failed in all the talented author of the "Revolt of the Bees,' did the same with the same results. And so will th Fourieritesand the Squashites. The truth is that the only body that has ever bee kept together in any society of this nature, is th Shaking (.^takers; and their leaders are the greatei religious despots that ever lived. Mahomet was nc a beginning to their tyranny. And they have bee kept logethcr upon principles utterly repugnant t every well-regulated mind and body, at varianc with the first law of the Almighty Creator to " it crease and multiply," and upon a system whieh i carried out by all would soon bring the world u with a round turn, and that too before even the yet 1841.

The running out of the period of notice directed by the Court does not fix his )t rights, nor impart any to his creditors, nor should it cut )t otf their right of opposing him until s decree of bankruptcy is obtained.

(Correspondence of tlie Herald.) Congressional Sketches. Jour* Quiwcy Adams?Now a member of the House of Representatives, has filled so large a space in the public eye for so long a time, and his history is so wall known by the people of this country, that it will be superfluous in these short sketches to give any thing more than a succinct synopsis of his career. He enterd the public service forty-eight years ago, and has been in constant em jinymeiii ever HI IUC. In 1794 he was appointed minister to the Nether* lands. In 1796 minister to Portugal. In 1797 minister to Prussia. In 1903 he" was elected a Senator, and remained in that body until 1S09, at which time he was sent as Minister to Russia. On his return ia 1811, he was appointed a Judge of the Supreme Court of the United Slates. In 1813 he was sent as one of the Associate Ministers at the treaty of Ghent. In 1815 he received the appointment of Minister to England, and while abroad in 1817 was selected by Mr. Monroe as his Secretary of State, in which office be continued until the time of his elevation to the Presidency in 1825. In 1832 he took his seat in the lower House of Congress, where he has been a prominent member continuously from then to the present day: Ma. Adams is now seventy years of age, and begins to show the marks of time. His figure is of the medium height, and he seems to have become much broader of late ; his head is nearly bald with silver sprinkled locks. His manner is naturally cold and formal, but at times he is most jocund and pleasant; he loves wit and humor, and will laugh till the tears fall from his eyes at a good anecdote. His mode of living i9 regular and temperate, but he is ever ready to join in any innocent festivity; he takes a cold bath daily before sunrise, and most generally walk* to and from the Capitol, a distance of nearly three m<les, and never wears an overcoat except in times of severe weather. We met him a short time since coming from the Capitol at a late hour, without a coat or umbrella in a drizzling rain, walking briskly along like the humblest man in the crowd. He is most assiduous in his duties at the House; he is never absent, never out of his seat day or ni^ht?he sees every thing that transpires there; nothing escapes him; he keeps a daily record of the minuteat events of his life, and has now.it is said, sixty volumes of manuscript journal. Very fond of poetry in his way, he will willingly and promptly at any time at his desk, dash off a set of verses in n Lady's album. In debate he is always listened to attentively; member* leave their seats and crowd aroand him. His sharp, shrill, half angry cry of "Mr. Speaker," will arrest the ear in the most noisy and tumultuous moment. The treasures of his mind are so rich that his mental powers never tire in debate. Mr. Adams is more known abroad than any of ur public men, having lived so long at foreign eourts, and he has been on intimate terms at times with Nicholas, Colincourt, Metteuich, Canning, Wilberfore. Lafavette, Talleyrand, and many other I treat actors of the last half century. We are not writing his history, therefore shall not speak of hie politics or his prejudices. Many may hare enmities towards him, but we feel assured they are only temporary, and when he shall hare passed oil' the stage, his virtues will only he held in remembrance. William Rurus Kino,of Alabama, has been 23 years a member of the Senate of the United States, and by his long continued service, has become the father of that very honorable and augnst body, but Mr. King is still a young mm. Mr King first eame to Congress, at a very early ace, as a representative from Noith Carolina, in 1811, and served two terms until after the war. He voted in caucns for the noninatien of Mr- Monroe, and shortly after, received the appointment of Secretary of Legation to Russia, whither he went with Mr. Pinkney. He returned to the United States, and became a citizen of Alabama, a short time before that State was admitted into the Union, and was the first Senator elected in 1819, which distinguished position he has ever since held. Mr. King is tall and graceful in person, with those manners a man generally acquires in a long intercourse with polite and distinguish* d society?of much kindness of heart, unoffending, and always the gentleman. He has received the votes of several States for the Vice Presidency, and may oecupy that post some day or other. Jeremiah Morrow, of Ohio, is among the oldest members of the House, and of distinguished political talents and character?he is about the age of Mr. Adams, but more active. He entered Congress in 1803, and remained in the lower house till 1K13 when he u-as elected n Senator, where he continued until 1819. He afterwards became Governor ?f Ohio, and returned to Congress during the past year, He was chairman of the Committee of Public Schools this session, the tame post where he distinguished himself thirty years ago. He is much respected and of great moral worth He belongs to the whig party Jon:* Taliaferro, of Virginia, (whig) came into Congress, the session before Mr. Morrow, in 1801, and now dates his time of entrance farther back than any living member?he has been in and out at various tim-s since that period to the present day. He is chairman of the Cnmmittec on Revolutionary Claims, and of great bnsine^ habits in the house ?he is a finished Virginia gentleman, of the old school, and much esteemed. To the lite and activity of a man of thirty, he joins a great good humor, and was never known to be out of lemper while he has been a member of Congress; i he has witnessed the beginning and ending of seven administrations. Such men like Mr. Taliaferro are of great service in the hnu-e, while they make 1 up the respect of the body, their presence is a check on youthful indiscretions, and the outbreaks of the presuming. There are few of these old gentlemen left in Congress. Johjt Pope, of Kentucky, another of the cotemporaries of Mr Morrow and Taliaferro. entered the Senate in 1807, remaining until 1813 He is advanced in years, but with the spirits and enthusiasm of a aollegian His figure is large, and has been handsome in his youth-he has but one arm, and writes with his left land, as he says; bur lomt o| his State papers seem as if written with double force. He is very much beliked, and of very marked character. He has tilled many high sta ions in his own State, and the large branches ol his aumerous familv are the first people in Kentacky. Governor Pope has been a member of the preseat house six years, and belongs to the whig school of politics. He is in favor of the good old fashion system of currency?ling life to him.

Aran 19th.?A most important ease to insurers and ship owners was decided in this Court yesterday, ia the case of Edward Dunscome vs. Georgia Insurance and Trust Company, of Augusta, Qa. The action was to recover a policy of iasuranee, elTected by plaintiff, at the otiice of the agent of the above company in this city, on the schooner Boxer, valued and insured at $'2M0. The policy extended for six months, and allowed the vessel "the privilege to be employed in the West India trade, including Demarara and Bermuda." The vessel was lost near Santa Martha, on the 7th of February, 1*39, while on a voyage from Jamaica to Santa Martha. Drjence.? Uaseaworthinrss, and that she was not lost under the policy, because Santa Martha was not in the. West ladies, it being a port on the Spanish Main. On the trial it was proved that the vessel was entirely rotten in her flooring, and other wise so decayed as to be untittobe raised from the place where she was sunk. The defendant's counsel contended that from the survayx produced by plaintiffs they should be defeated in the suit, underthe'Tottea clause" Ofthe policy. The master ofthe vessel was called by plaintilfs, and testified that the vessel was tight, staunch and strong, when she sailed from Jamaica. Several merchants, ship masters, and insurers, were called to testify whether Santa Msrtha was cousid ereuasueing in me wen inuies. Severn testified that they k> considered it, from the fact of its being one of the ports en the Carribean sea. Others dilfered|from this opinion, on the ground that the appellation West Indies included no other ports except those of the islands. The trial occupied the time of the Court for two days, and after a charge from Justice Jones, oi an hour and a halt in length, the jury, in aliout twenty miautes. returned a verdict for plaintiffs ot $2 91) 26 and costs.

Kxtraordlnary Case Of one of the most intelligent and responsible gentlemen of the State of Ohio. CoLt'MBi s, (Ohio,) April 16, 1842. GENTLEMEN In compliance with my promise,! now procted to inform you of the result of tne trial I have madeof theeffteacv of Dalle)'s Magical Pain Extractor, or Ointment, in a severe case of the piles. It is, however, proper for me to say, that I am from principle opposed *o the system so oiien adopted, of putfiing worth* less medical compounds ; and having known instances of well leaning men being induced hastily to endorse nostrums which, after more thorough experience, proved unwoithy of tht enconiums bestowed upon them, I resolved not to give my name to any thing that should not stand the test of a protracted trial. Some three or four years since I became slightly affected with the piles, which gradually and almost imperceptibly grew worse, at times being more and less troublesome, until last July, when owing to some derangement of the bowels, the disease assumed very rapidly an extremely severe and painful character. The tumors had become exceseively enlarged, and 1 was obliged at all timts to wear a compress, in order to attend to any hnsinesi whatever. At this time a ahrooic dysentery set in, or rather a dy sen tery secretion was constantly goin* on in the rectum, which greatly aggravated the iii?ea?? and ?et at dtliance all theremediea prescribed, either tukon an medicine or applied locally : and thus (tillering what only thoie who have been ao afflicted can imagine, and no one can deacribe, I took theoccasion which providentially offered of going to New York, with the view of aubmitting to a surgical operation. On arriving ia New York, I by accident learned that" Dalley'a Magical Pain Eatractor," or ointment, to|be found at Comstocks, 71 Maiden lane, had effected a remarkable cure in a caae somewhat similar to mine, and I was induced to make one more trial. As soon as I commenced using this remedy, the violent symptom! abated, the dysinteric discharges were corrected, a healthy action ensued,'and for the first time in many months 1 was permitted to rest in bed through the night. The tumors had be' come ?o much enlarged and so prominent that nothing short of a surgical operation could have suddenly reduceJ them, but as they were evidently growing leaf, and at the distressing symptoms hail abated and my general health recovering, I concluded to let well enough | elone, and have by means of one application daily been \ gradually and certainly recoveung. My general health is entirely restored, and the local diaease ii so nearly eradicated that I have not, for some weeks, ?uf fcred inconvenience from it, and have no doobt but by the use of this simple remedy it will be entirely and per I manently erased. I have been thus particular in stating my case from my knowledge that thousands suffer as I i have done for want of proper information; and with the It. IK?.? il,?. olll,I mav he induced to give ""P"- ??? ? , - _ thii remedy a thorough trial It never givee pain, haa no disagreeable odor, can do no harm, and aeems very happily adapted to cure all diseases of thia character, though hy nomram invented or compounded with that view. For caaea of sudden protrusion, attended with soreness and inflamation, or for internal piles, I have >the moat unhesitating confidence that it will prove a speedy and certain specific; cases of long atanding, where enlargements have become pcrmansnt, it Will reproduce healthy action ImmeAM^, and thusgradually and certainly effect a run?at leeat as I believe from my own experience, and from several other caaea where I have recommended its trial. If you should thinh the publicstion of this communication would aid in making thia remedy known, you are at liberty to publish it, and 1 will cheerfully give all information in my power to others who may apply for it ; end if by so doing I can render them any aid, I shall be happy to have the opportunity. Truly yours, WARREN JENKINS. I
