NEW YORK HERALD. | Kcw York, Sunday. June 16.1844. Extra ScmIoii of Congress. It is now generally understood that the President will call Congress together in September, and throw before them additional matter relative to Texas and other subjects. This will create a pro* digious political exc tement throughout the country, and operate on the Presidential election teriibly. Will Morse's magnetic telegraph be then ready! tate of the Country?Tbc Great Questions j placed before the People tor Decision. Cungif-ss adjourns on Monday, and thus have > pieced before the peoj I**, for decision at the polls next autumn, in ihe Presidential election, all the1 great qnestionr of the day with which they have been agitated during the session The Texas annexation cpiretio has been thrice thrown oat of the Senate?the reduction of the Tatiff question has h*en ejected Iro n the Ilou.e?so al.*o haw the reduction of the present rates of postage, and u new mo iifi ation u! the Post Office laws. l.nbr<u'ing r, ese and uthers nut introduced into Congress we have the following important que*ti hi involved in the approaching election tor next President, and which ? ill be patted upou by three millions I voters in November:? 1 Toe Iuiinediate Annexation of T? xas. 2 Tile occupation of all the Oregon Territory. 3 The modification and reduction of the present Tariff to a mere revenue standard. 4 A national currency, involving a new national bank or some ether general system, probably like that of Sir Robert Peel's. 5. Tho distribution of the sales of public lands to relieve the delinquent States. (J The encouragement and patronage of works of Internal improvement of a great national character. 7. A reform and reduction in the present rates of postage. 8 A modification of the present naturalization laws. These questions will now be placed before the country lor discussion, anu will possess an influence, more or less, on the election between the Whigs and Democrats, between whom the real contrst takes place?for we class the Tyler, Mormon, and Abolition nominations, as mere fractions and eccentricities, not capable of changing the great current of events. These are the questions, and here are the answers. The Whigs, with Mr. Clay, are in favor ot the present tariff?in favor of a di.-tribution ot the public lands?in favor of internal improvements? in ftvorofanewre-orgariizition ot the currency by creaung a great bank of issue. The Democrats, with Polk as their candidate, are opposed to all these measures. Again, the Whigs are opposed to the annexation of Texas?somewhat opposed in taking possesion of all Oregon in case of the refusal of England?opposed to any change in the existing tariff; while the Democrats are decidedly in favorof all these measures On the subject ot aieduc tion nf the postage rates and a repeat of the naturalization laws, both parties have given no general monit'??atiilinn Thuv nnnrt fur imth hereafter. This ts the position of the country. The leading questions, however, which will agitate the two parties will be Texas, the Tariff and the currency. On the Texas question the democracy will endeavor to raise all the war feeling of the people against England to turn the tide against the whigs, and to stimulate all their prejudices against Mexico and its policy. This too will be a very elective weapon ag.inst the whigs in the south and west, but not so operative in the north. The w higs will endeavor to run principally on the tariff question in the north?with what success we will see. The currency and other questions will only be incidental. Su h is the general view. What are the chances 1 Th" nomination of Polk bv the democncy was looked upon generally as a farce on its first announcement?but time has reconciled all their 1 irtions and cliques to its neces-ity, and it is now highly probable that the contest between Polk and Ciay will be more equal than any ot.e supposed. We still think the chances are in fivor of Mr Clay and of ihe party lie repre ents?but yet the con hit t of England and Mexico on the Texas qj stion ri ght give an advantage to the folk party in rousing the war feeling tu this country that would injure Mr. Clay's prospects, and benefit Mr. Polk's. The balance is yet inclined to Clay. Tim will tell the rest. r" \ Business Prospects of the Legitimate Drama. ?Vaudeville?Mrsic?The Opera.?The legitimate drama continues to go down?dowr.?down. Tim ha3 been the tendency of it for a considerable time past, and scarcely a respectable vesiige of it | remains in this country at the present moment. | It is not at all difficult to explain this melancholy phenomenon Much of the nurd fortune of the drama, in tuis latter day, is to be attributed to the conduct of the heroes of the sock and buskin themselv s. We have had one set of Thespians, claiming for themselves exclusive right and title to dramatic empire, selling themselves up as the tiptop of respectable society, and looking on none with more sovereign contempt than on their poor brethren of the profession who had not succeeded so well as themselves in ascending the ladder of popularity or assurance, as the case might be. We have had this set thus treating with scorn and contumely their professional brethren, and playing of! all sorts of antics, exciting the ridicule or pity of the spectator, whilst at the other end of the profession we have had another and a larger set, grovelling in the mire of vice and poverty. Between the two, the poor legitimate drama has been reduced to its present ticketty, asthmatic condition. The folly, stupidiiy, ignorance, and want of principle on the part of many of the theatrical managers has also had a great share in the degradation of the legitimate drama. But one of the chief causes has been the great change in the public taste. The public have lost their relish for witnessing the dull an 1 tedious representation of five uct tragedies. Tliey now prefer the light, amusing, graphic sketches of society, of the lollies of the day, of tlie men and manners of the time, which are produced at the small theatres. Vaudevilles, farces, petit come ay, inrge are mr uraumuu i>ruuucuona lor winch ( now-a days there is a market, nnd in this city and ' throughout the Union this specus of dramatic entertainment has become universal y popular and profitable. Music and the ballet, too, have now been fairly established as the most popular species of entertainment Fanny Elaaler at once created a taste for the higher order of dancing and the ballet, which nothing can now repress; and in music, Ole Bull has excited a perfect mania. He has succeeded to a moat extraordinary extent. Italian Opera also has been established permanently in this city, and a new direction lias been thus given to the popular taste, which will be as enduring as it is classical and refined. Ii is thus very clear that ihe legitimate drama is likely to be in a very deplorable condition for Heaven knows how long tune to come. The galvanic twitches produced by Macready and Forrest, only indicate the cori? depress-on ol this department of iheHtri al enieruir ment EaArrnwLFi.owi-.ns. ?We were ys^tsrdev fuvor d with one of the m >-t h> autdul bouqurti we ever r> n nber to have seen, from the nor- ry ground* of Mr. Wrn. B irnhim, Bloomingdale. Tin per son who can produce such is well worthy of pitronage, and his grounds, we know, are, to the ad nureis of floral culture, equally worthy of ineper tion. I he most dehghtlitl of tfowers, fruits am herbs,may be seen here in perfection, and every at tention paid to the wants and wishes of those whi favor the proprietor with their commands. Go, see, and judge for yourself. Politics in Canada.?Late advices from the United (T) Province oi Canada show that it is as unsettled as ever; that there is a princ pie of antagonism in operation between the government of Sir C. M dealt and the great majority of the Colomats, which neither he nor biB partisan advisers will be able to allay, unle*s he retraces the injudicious steps that they have led him into. The doctrine of responsible government is still the vexed question ; it rages with all the ardor of the solar heat]in the dog-days, and if anything were wanting to show the unsettled state of men's is more than supplied by the Uct that at this season of t';e year, whpn people should be making the most of the very limited time, that in that rigorous climate is avail 'hie for business and industrial pursuits, a Urge share of it is taken up in political contention and the evolutious of opposite parties. The present Governor is admitted by all to be a man of excellent private character, but has just been as unfortunate in conciliating that hostility which his predecessot, Sir C. Bsgot, successfully allayed by h wise and liberal policy, us be is respected in privHte life. Sir C. Metcalf came to Canada at a lustily favorable juncture of circumstances. The r? f??rrii party were beginning to forget in the open, honest and manly admin atration of Sir C. Hanoi, ilie wily, and high-handed policy ?f Lord "vrieuham; iliey were quite tired ol an agitation and civil war ot five or six years duration, and us many new governors in the same period. It is hardly possible (hat a sensible man like linn would not be instructed by the past, arid act accordingly, if instructions from the colonial office, quite of a piece with the well known principles that govern the public conduct of the head of that department, did not letter, and embarrass him, and deprive him of the exercise of his discretion and sound judgment. In no other way can we account for his imprudent quarrel with ihe Executive Council, about the meaning of responsible government; his dissolution of the (louse of Assembly, when he must have known (hat a new appeal to the people would have given a result more unfavorable to his views. The removal of the seatot government too, was ill managed, so awkwardly indeed, that it excited the ill wili of the inhabitants of Canada West, without making an additional friend in the eastern section of the Province. One of the worst features in the aspect of Canadian affairs now is the increase of party strife and religious animosity ; and above all, that execrable and blasting domination of the Orange mania, which cursed Ireland, and is suspected by many to have had a large share in the outrageous anti-Catholic proceedings ut Philadelphia lately. A very strange intimacy and corresponds ce has been discovered latelv between Sir Charles Metcalf and Col Ogle If Gowan, the redoubtable Grand Maser of the Orangemen in Canada, in which, it is asserted, his Excellency made some advances to secure the valuable services of this liberal Orangeman in an official capacity. We do not say it must be true " because it is in the paper," but there certainly has noi yet been a sufficient disclaimer ot the authenticity of the published correspondence between the Orange Grand Master and the delegate of her Majesty, and that very same topic, dressed as it is with acrimony and ardor, will not serve to narrow the breach between the parties concerned, and it will up ear in the sequel as another of the awkward positions in which his Excellency has contrived to place himself. Nordo we think his wisdom is a whit mete apparent in the sanctioning the long epistles of the Rev. Egerton Rverson, put forth as a vindication - f his policy. He must be hard pressed by his keen pursuers when he enlists in his defence, it may be to cover his retreat, the fluent pen of a Methodist parson. If the question were merely a war of words, and one hat could be decided by die toughest argumentation, such an ally would be a great accession of strength, but however the matter is twisted and darkened, it inu-tcorne tound to ?hu eoal iaaiia ut luct un/l ihul id whtifhpf lhd? fHnrP. sentalives of the people are not those best qualified to legislate for the colony, and > lso to judge of who are best adapted to discharge the duties ot public servants?to pronounce upon who will perform the functions of the executive department, arid also in what, and how shall be their remuneration. All this is still in a very ambiguous attitude at present in Canada, and must be defined belore it settles down in peac and contentment. Mexico ?Our last advices from this country are to the first of last month. There had been an earthq take?and rumors of several commotions in the interior. Santa Anna was at his country seat. There is probably trouble in Tobasco about this time. An exp ditton to revolutionize that department sailed about two weeks ago from New Or leans. It was uuder the command of Santmanat. Tkxas?The Single Star liepublic was quietly awaiting on the 30th ult, the action of our Congress, relative to the Annexation Treaty. We supimnu that as soon as the rejection of that treaty by the Senate reaches Texas, we shall hear of some important movement touching a treaty of alliance with an European power. Chagrin, it nothing else, may produce this mi vement. The tide oi emigration whs tetting strongly into the country. The Ocean, from Antwerp, brought 90, and reports a yet larger number preparing to emigrate. The emigrants are of the most valuable U i riH. The contest for the Presidency was conducted pretty sharply, and partakes strongly of the contests tn (his republic. The tival candidates are Edward Burltieson and Anson Jones. A large amount of bus ness has lately been done at Houston in cotton. One house has purchased some 20t>0 b iles; two other dealers have transacted a very fairbusiness. Cotton was coming in briskly at Galveston. Texas is to be a great cotton country. The Commissioners, Cols. Neil and Williams, and the Indian Agent, Major Western, had returned to Washington, from the treaty ground, having effected treaties with all the tribes that were represented. IIayti.?We have accountsfrem thismodel black republic to the 21 tnst. Affairs there appeared to be settlingdown underGuriere, the new thick lipped President.

They intend, or have already made a treaty with France The different divisions of the Island are to be erected irto stu'es, somewhat alter the plan of the United States.

It was f tought that the insurrectionary movements of the blacks had been entirely put down. To do this all I the jails had to be filled with the whites, mulattoes, and blacks. It is stated, that the drought on the Island still continued ; the country wns all parched with the lieat, and vegetation had entirely ceased.

Bsacom Couass, Hobokkn, Juki 15,1844 ?Two matches were announced to come off this day, which for some time past has excited consideiable attention in the sorting world, particularly among the admirers o! good trotting throughout the States; particularly that between Uipton and Coniidence. This was a match made last winter between the owners of the horses, and at that time there certainly could not be known what the " chapter of accidents" nnght turn up. However, both came to the mark to day to decide the long pending point. About half past four o'clock the animals appeared cnl?he ground, accompanied by their vehicles, the latter quite uew for the occasion. Thejwagon which Kipton was to draw, it is said did not exceed 70 pounds in weight, while the sulky of Confidence was almost, if net quite, the same in weight; the former it was generally supposed was not strong enough for the contest, but as some persons think that new brooms must necessarily sweep cleanest, so it was that this new light gingerbread wagon was persis ed in being tried. The animals appeared not in first rate order "ipton came to the scratch with one leg bound up, which looked ominous; the other did not appear in temper quite at home yet under the aWIe hands of W Whelan was kept witniri something like decent bounds. The attendance was much more numerous ttnd respectable than could have been possibly expected considering the inconvenient day for men of business upon which the match came Thu Irani; vuua in fir^f ruli? nrrlpf flit* nrnnrif>. tors having evidently taken every pains with it previously, to render it satisfactory in this respect. The first piece of snort announced was,a match for 9500, two mile heats, to go as they pleased, between the American Boy and Quaker, but as the time approached for starting, it was found that the former had compromised the match by paying $150 to the latter, in preference to venturing a trot for the whole sum. The betting, previous to the grand match of the day was 8 to 5 on Kipton, take 6 to 10; but very little wasdone Near upon live o'clock the horses were harnessed for the grand match for $2,000, between the 0. g. Iiipton. to go to a wagon (H Woodrulf, plaiJ jacket and white sleeves, and blue cap; and B. g. Confidence, to go to a sulky (W. Whelan, white jacket and black cap. At the second attempt to go the word was given, and they went forth, Confidence on the inside leading round the bottom, where she broke and gave the front to Iiipton, and at the quarter, where he was in front some six lengths, but soon after he broke, and Confidence changed places with him, much owing to a dog crossing the course as Kipton was coming up, and shortly after his bottom board fell out on the reach, which threw him still further backward, and Confidence came in some ten or fiteen lengths ia front, performing the first mile in 2 minutes 40 seconds. Previous to the second heat, the betting was 7 to 4 on Confidence, take 2 to 1, and some little business was done at the latter figure. In the first fifty yards aftetflhe start, both broke, and changed position, but at the quatter Hiram took the track and led, but shortly after broke, and near the half. Confidence went up, and led way 1 to the distance; the other breaking two or three times in quick succession ; but Confidence strove hard to distance his opponent, which, with some difficulty, the other prevented. It was said, to save himself, that Kipton run a cpnstderable distance. This heat was performed in 2 minutes 41 seconds. The great exertion that Confidence was called upon to make in trying to distance the other, evidently did him no good for his future endeavors. Previous to the third heat, prudence dictated the running in a stronger wagon, which was procured; and the animal drawing might have been aware ol the change, tor in his display before the heat he went better than any time i reviously. At the start. Confidence led. hut broke ere he got to the bottom, and Upton led him at the quarter some 6 or 7 lengths, hut when near the half, Confidence gained upon him. and continued gently to do so round the top towards the three-quarter;butHiramhadthe lead and determined toker-pit, and all the efforts of the other were lost. Ripton came home umidst considerable applause, some 5 or 6 lengths in advance, performing trie mile in 2 minutes 38 seconds. Previous to the fourth heat, Confidence showed evident symptoms of fatigue, but, notwithstanding, the betting was 25 to 20 in favor ol Confidence.? There was a good start for this heat, which Ripton lead, but, as before, Coufi fence broke at the bottom, which gave the advantage considerably to the other, who maintained it until near the half mil* post, when lie had one of the worst breaks that had occurred throughout the trot, and there were h great number of them, and Confidence came up tud gained upon the other considerably as ap proaching the three-quarters; hut shortly after h bad a similar misfortune, which helped Ripton much, who continued to lead; but the other, a? they approached the distance, gained still upon him. but notwithstanding,Ripton came home six or sevet lengths in front?performing the heat in 2 minutes, 42li seconds For the fifth heat the odds if any thing was in favor of Ripton, though there was not much to choose between either of the animals; one api?ear d to be much fatigued, and theotheras if he would r o her stand upon t hree legs than four, for the fourth -eemrd any thing but comfortable to him. Ripton led to the quarter where he was some 5 or 6lrngths in advance, and where they both showed as if they h id had enough of it fioin the pace tney went.? Th- odds were now 10 to 3 on Ripton. As they approached the half Confidence api?eared to gain on iv 1,11011, inn n was omy iiiumeiuuiy. vr i.i-ii ur?ti the three-quarter Kip'on broke,but hooii recovered, and the trot from thence home vas most beautiful; every exertion was made by the driver of Confidence, but it wnsof nonvail. Kipton lead home 8 oi 9 lengths in advance, performing the heat in 2 minutes 40 seconds. At the close they stood thus:? B. g Ripton, (H. Woodruff,). .231 1 1 B. g Confidence 1 1 2 2 2 Time, 2:40 2:41 2:39 2:42| 2:40 There is hut little doubt, but that if it had been persisted in to run in the fitst wagon provided expressly for the occasion, some serious accident would have occurred either to the dnveror the animal, perhaps both, and that Ripton would have iosi the match. It is quite a mistaken notion that such light vehicles are best for such purposes. There is a very interesting match to come ofl over the same ground on Monday next, in which some of ihe greatest favorites of the season are entered. There is also another great event to take place in a week of ten days after,in which some ol the best horses of the north and south will come together. We heard that the owner of Confidence immediately after the race sold him to a gentleman from the south for $400. CAMBRIDGE TROTTING COURSE.

Those personages were first announced on Thursday, and have since then been regular "lions" st lhat popular place or resort, and will so continue to be during their short stay there. They consist of a party of fourteen genuine specimens of the red men of the Iowa tribe, is savage und untutored as ever tracked a bear or wielded a acalping-knife. They come from the Far West for the purpose of contemplating men and manners " toward the rising ol the sunbut, of course, being little conversant with books and the art of authorship, it cannot be expected that the reading public will become familiar with them through their woiks, as is in late years the case with many travellers fer interior in originality to the Ioways, and we have no doubt in the power of observation also. Their tribe, is about filteen hundred strong, und located on the eastern bank of the Missouri River, in that State, where the march ot civilization, or contact with the oale-faces. has not yet deprived themot their hunting grounds, or bartered UwoswJst ksittl* inr ihpir riffhts and nrivileflres as freemen of the forest. In person, our new visitants are tall and muscular, fine specimens of the stalwart and athletic warrior. Their features possess in a high degree the characteristic lineaments of the race, the acquiline nose, 'he piercing eye, the roving glance, the deeply set lines of the countenance, and that invariable mark of pure li.diaii blood, the jet black hair. Of the latter there is little left of which to judge, except the scalping lock, for, unlike the Indians of the North, wno wear their hair wry long, the loways have contrived to part with theirs, except the aforesaid insuperable adjunct for a fighting rnnn. Their dress is extremely picturesque. The red predominates, and what with red blankets, red pelts, and a profusion of red ochre, they really look "far oil"at a distance." As tor the foreign aid of ornament, in the form of beads, rings, necklaces, breastplates, and twenty other things as nameless as useless, every one of our singular new comers has enough to set up a little curiosity shop. The belts of wampum, and fantastic head-dresses of the same commodity, adorned with a fantastic coronet of died bear's hair, are of a piece with the rest of the savage finery which decorates the loways. Yet, savage and all as it is, it contrasts very favorably with the tawdry brass plates aud enormous fistlulls of feathers that were stuck round and upon he head-cases of a military company which happened to be parading near the Indian wigwams. By the bye, it was mightily entertaining to see the arch and any thing but admiring glances of the red men at the said prim and pedantic mUituires, amounting to something like "Does your mother know you're outl" or, "I would not march hrotigh Coventry with thetn;" and a droll Irishman who was standing beside, with much naivettk and a humorous twitch of his hat at the same time, observed, " By the powers,paint is^urtier than pipe clay alter all, and that by a long chalk." Ma-hushe-kaw, which being interpreted mpans "\V hite Cloud," is the first chief of the Iowa nation, and accompanies this party. Heis the son of a chief of the same name, who uistinguUhed himself both for sagacity in council, and intrepidity und finesse in fight. It is said that his people were much attached to him, and his memory is held in high esteem still. We had the honor of an introduction to his son and successor, the present "White Cloud," and were received with courtesy in his wigwam, and had the edification of communing with him throjgh an interpreter. He is a young man, not more than about rhirty-lwo, yet as sedate and 6ure spoken as much older men. Seated on a buffalo robe, bedizzened with paint in mul'iforin designs and grim dashes, while his neck prominently displayed u buge collar of grizzly heat's teeth,he cut what was >ve presume in his own estimation h very respective, hut in ours a most outri figure. There is nothing remarkable in the appearance of the quaws.but we learn that although below the aver ige size they are fully equal to the discharge of their duties in pitching the tents, building canoes, and carrying off the products of the chase. Newmon-ya or Walking-Rain, the third chief, is the orator, and does the principal part of the talking lie is tall and muscular, light ol step, and 13 considered a notable man, haviug acted a distinguished part in the suppression of a feud that was raised a tew years ago by certain disaffected members of the tribe, and which grew out of some amour between ne of their squaws and a daring rival.

BHANDUETH'H PILLS. _ The effect of this celebrated medicine is to purify the blood: to convert the poor, corrupt blood, into healthy, rich blood. And it ia because they do thi? that they have been eo steadily sought alter by all classes of our citizen* who have required medicine. And it ia because of the power Brand re th Pill* are now known to possess a* health reatorera, that render* them ao popular. They crreall attectiona, eimp!y because they make the blood pure?abstract out of it those qualities which produce disease, and give to it those qualities which produce health. Now every solid part of the human frame is made from tin-Mood and the food we eat ia converted into blood to upply the waste our bodies uio continually mist.lining So in the ordinary courae ol nature we manuucturo our entiia bodies in about nine yeais from the lood taken into i our stomachs Suppose the blood made in this stomach of ours is unsound, impure, oocasioued by some cause or other ; it may refer to the preceding generation ; no matter, we make impure blood, and ii so cannot be healthy Or suppose the air we h-ve lived in for sometime has been loaded with matteis detrimental to health, or our lood for a long period has been of an unwholesome klnd.or that the mind has I wen much troubled?for grief, anxiety, or great attention to any particular point ia aura to occasion bad effects on the blood. Any ol these causes existing. good blood cannot be applied to tho body. But let Brundreth't Pills he used daily under these circumstances, in doses of from two to six pills, or as the case shall determine. What la their i flectr It is to carry off (he impure matters from the blood: leaving only the good to renew every part of the body. What war uu sound, now becomes sound, and the stomach soon gets into ho healthy a condition that even bad air or uowholexome food for a lime are unable to injure tho health materially Even when the climate or food continue unhealthy, the .vAMoainnal nun a( tho RranHra'h Pilla twill nunjrolii tliA impure part* nnd cause their expulsion, leaving what ia good to supply life aud strength to the body. When the bones are disett-ed, when every ramification of the frame is out of order, the Brandreth Pills will, in nineteen cases out ol twenty, cvhk. Remember that the body can be entirely remade from the food, bones and all; and aided by this most beneficent medicine, in a quarter of the time it takes in the ordinary course of nature. In from two to four years an entirely new healthy body can he exchanged for the unsound, the diseased, the misera hie one. The slowness er quickness of the change alto gethor depending upon the effect the Brandreth Pills are made to produre; which effect can he graduated just as the patient pleases No possible injury can result Iron, this; nothiug hut good can follow 1 nquire the etfeet of Brandreth's fills among yottr unprejudiced friends; you will hear sufficient to satisfy you that there is no risk in making the trial, and that you will not be doing yourself justice without it When your blood is once rune, nothing in the shape of food will hardly come amiss; nothing will sour upon your stomach; you may eat pies, orfnnything in reason, and the greater variety of food the better blood is made. All who have weak stomachs, who arc dyspeptic, or in any way afflicted in body, should without delay resort to Biandreth's Pills?which will indeed strengthen the life principle, and by perseverance wi'h them, entirely renew the whole body; the materials now in it good will he kept so; those had, displaced and removed. Good blood cannot make bad bone or bad llesh. And bear in mind, the Brandreth Pills surely purity the blood The method of preparing the Brandrethian Vegetable Extract* is secured bv Letters Patent of the United States -Patent granted to Benjamin Braudreth, 20th January, 1843. The extracts of which Brandreth's Pills are composed are obtained by this new patent process, without boiling or any application of heat. The active principle of the . herbs is thus secured, the same as it ia in the living vegetable. The public should be cautious of medicines recommended in advertisements stolen from me. A sure test of genuine Brandreth Tills:?Examine the box of pills; then look at the certificate of agency, whose engraved date must be within the year, which every authorised agent must pessess; if the three labels on the box agree with the three labels on the certificate, the pilla are true-if not, they are false. The pills are sold at 2A cents per box, at No. 241 Broadway. 274 Bowery, and 241 Hudson street, NewYork; Mrs Booth, 6 Market street, Brooklyn; and by 20,000 agents in the United Stabs and Canada whose certificates and pills thould be carefully examined before purchase is made.
