^ MEDICAL. JJRANDRETH'S PILLS ARE A SU11E CURE FOR INFLUENZA. Tnis conrr.Ai.vT iias become so frequent, that there arc tew persons who have not bad it several time*. Jt is a kind ol malignant contagious cold attended { witb mncb fever, and great prostration or strength. So soon as possible, swallow si* or eight 1'illa; a large dose is ahsn- j lutrly necessary to relieve the-brain, that organ appearing to suffer greatly in this complaint. VV hen they have operated well, pot your feet and legs in hot water, or tako a hot hath. Be sure and be purged, before yon use any means of increasing the circulation, or your lifu may bo the forfeit. Now go to bed; and. when in bed tako two more nills ami soinu hot bono rt tea, catnip, or balm or balsam, or estn e|?.ttor gruel?any of the.e warm driuki will answer, ami which may be lufi V choice?either of them will help to restore insensinlc perspiration, and this method will generally cure. Should, however. the patient, after the pills and tin's after treatment, not be better in the morning, let him take another six, eight or ten pille or more, according to the urgency of symptoms, and the warm drinks, and foot or general Lath, at night. My experience has show n me that the third day generally Unas ths patient well, w hen this plan has hcen adopted in the beginning. But, in any event, the n-ntinuanee of the treatment is the beet that can he adopted, whether it takes one day or twenty to effect the cure. However had the head inuv bo, never let blood he draw n or leeches applied ; we w ant all tiie blood we have. Instead of losing this " life of our tlosli," let us take more pills, w hit h w ill take the death principle from ns, leaving our iilood relieved, ami ready to rally all its life Kw era for our restoration, so soon as the purgation has left it ) to effect this object. CHOI.KHA. This terrible disease hub rusistcd nearly all the efforts of medicine to arrust its progress, but lin andiikth'h Pills. almost immediately they art* swallowed, exert a beneficial influence; they carry out of the system the irritating mutters upon which the disease depends for its continuance; they arouse the vital powers, and restore warmth to the surface, previously chilled by the coldness of approaching death. There is no occasion for fear, provided liraudreth's Pills aro on hand ready for immediate use; their prompt administration will vanquish the malady, and restore tlie healths l/so them as directed in the diseases enumerated bolow. YELLOW, S!III\ TYPHI'S AND ALL FEVERS? DYSENTERY AND DIAllRIKKA. la the commencement, it is of absolute importance, in view of a speedy cure, that a full dosu of pills be taken at once, because the humors which produce diseases of this class, are always of the most uialignaut, poisonous quality, and no safety to life exists while any portion remains in the bowels or the blood. Should the first dose not cure, ho not alarmed, but reiterate the dose. Should the evacuations be very putrid, of bad odor, unnutural color. &c. tee., besides using four or Six pills twice a day, take also, a tcaspoouful of powdered charcoal, in water, every duy, while these symptoms continue. Let your diet be light, an J of easy dig uion, ftj arrow root, rice pudding, Indian meal gruel; also, sheep's head broth with rice and a piece of cinnamon boiled in it, or calves head broth. Sheen's head makes the best diet if it be boiled until the bones re clean. As a rule, the first dose of pills cures when timely used. sometimes three or lour doses limy ne nooossary. iu?r? urt rases in which it takes weeks to euro; but they do not | occur once in it thousand times. In any event, no medicine or plan of treatment is hotter than that above recommended, j or will sooner cure, So soon an tbo irritating luutturs aro re* ( moved, eo toon you will be well, and not before. Anodynes and astringent 1 have u deleterious etfeet; because they oeca- I aion the retention of tluit death principle which alone eausea dysentery, diurrhuui, ubolera, and all other diseases, aceordiug to its excess over the principle of life. liu t iirandrc th's Pills are opposed to this as water is to tire, or as heat is to cold; and when they are taken into a mail, they go to work boldly to drive this death principle from the body, and all they can do ?bat if there be work for fifty doses, one dose must not be expected to do the work ol fifty. And this truth should always be kept in mind. Let not the patients frighten themselves w ith the idea that they are too weak to bear much purging; hut hear in mind that these mildly operating Pills of ur.Tirandreth puts not j weakness into tho frame, Cut draws weakness oat, leaving Strength in its place, ami gives composing sluop at night, ami ! an appetite to relish any food. OBSTRUCTIONS ANI) IRREGULARITIES PECULIAR TO FEMALES. When yonng wromen are skk much nftor sixteen yoars, and who have not become regular, having either too much or too little?when in too great quantities?there is untiling to be done but to take the lulls us described for eustivouess; being careful to make small doses betaken whoa tbo time is ox- ! pee ted With those in whom the ease is different?namely, who hava not enough, or are irregular, or with whom it is altogether j Stopped?let tbetn follow the direct i ns relative to costivenoss also, but with this difference: instead of the small doses, be careful to so order it tlial the largest doses are taken about ? the time the turn is expected. And if irregularity is not thus j removed, as it may not the first time; the next time, besides taking the lurge dubfs of pills for several days preceding, take It large cup of strong pennyroyal tea, cold, when you get up in the morning of the day you expect. These directions followed, , will be sure and produce the effect. CHANGE OK LIFE. Use the pills as directed in eostlvcness. and all the very unpleasant feelings wilt disappear. Fresh air. and change of ccne, will ninth help in the cure, nut the pills will he til 1 sufficient, il persevered in, to effect a full restoration to health. SPECIALLY "TO MOTHERS The costiveness and the sickness of stomach whioh often prevail at a certain interesting period, aro greatly relieved, | and ultimately cured, by the use of Hn am>i: ant's i'li.t.t, | which should be used once or twice n week during the whole I time. They insure an easy and safe time, and, what is the j Wish of every mother, they secure a healthy, good-tempered Child. It la a remarkahlc fact, that these ladies who liave heon in the habit of using Bhandrkth's Pills, hnvo ultimately become ?> healthy, and the huhit of the system so changed, that no sickness of stomach, or other unplea -ant symptom, haa prevailed more during the interesting period than at other times. Or. Brundrcth has it in his power to give personal reference to establish this proof of the wonderful powers of the Brandreth Pill. Ir cases or Debility, Weakness, Wastinoi, Decline, or Const1 mption approachi so, it will tie necessary to commenre with Binsll doses, Begin w ith one pill going to hod; j next night, two pills; do this alternately fur three or four I days, or longer; if no alteration takes place, then increase a pill each night until tire or six pills are used, then decrease by one pill, down to one pill. Should any feverish symptoms arise, then take strong doses until the fever is reduced. When this is done, the patient may drop down to such doses as their own judgment shall determine; being careful to keep tho drnin upon the impure humors; as these uio removed, so will he their advancement to sound health. ANEURISM, OK ENLARGEMENT OK THE HEART, j ARTERIES. PILES, ke., be. Use the pills two or three times a week, in doses sufficient to purge freely; and w hen a paroxysm comes on, a fearless use of the pills must he made; down with six or eight, and in a little while rrpeat the dose; do this until the bowels are strongly purged. This effected, the danger is over for that attack. Angina pectoris and stone in the gall bladder are treated in the same manlier; and although considered incurable by the medical professii n, arc cured by the nso of IIra.ni>reth's Pills. Piles are cured by Uiiani.reth's Pills. In severe attacks the doses must be t'ull; six or eight for a few nights together will cure the worst ca>es. Hdienever this disease comes on in the treatment of other diseases, it is a good sign: use nothing hut the pills, and. as an outward application, cold cream or lard, ami make frooiient use of cold w atcr locally. Where there have been pectoral affections, as asthma, I consumption, fce., perseverance will be reiniired with the pills to effect a permanent cure. But any other course will assuredly bring on the pectoral affection. Dr. Rrandreth would call special attention to tho folliwing letter from? ARNOLD BVFFUM. THE PHILANTHROPIST.

"As a testimony that this is not vain flattery, I givo tho J following brief ske'cli of my ow n cxpcricnco: "When I was tweuty years old, 1 was very sick for about 1 months, with what my physician called 'slow-fever,' iuring which time I took much medicine, from that time, for thirty-four years, 1 was very often so k and under the care of a physician. About twelve years ago, I hud u very severe attack of inflammatory Hheunuitism, during which 1 was attended by Doctor Moore, of Philadelphia.

The friend at whose house 1 stopped, called in a physician, who made a very careful examination of my case, and then proposed to commence a process, w hich, he stated, would so reduce my system, as to confine me to the house for at least six weeks; but 1 declined his prescriptions, took a dose of llrandrcth's Pills, cnlled the next day and paid the physician for bis visit, and pursued my travel; and this is the only instance of my being visited by a physician since 1 purchased the first box of JJrandreth's Pills, twelve years ago. My health is now vastly better than it lias been for thirtyfour years, before I commenced the use of these Pills. They have teen my constant companion wherever 1 have been, byland or by sea, and my only medicine; 1 am now ten pounds heavier tiian I was before I used them; when 1 take a cold now, I have no cough; und 1 attribute all this change, under Ciod, for the substitution of Jirandrcth Pills for the fre?|iieut bleeding and the calomel dosing to which 1 w.is bef ?re subjected.

And manv of the nostrums recently recommended for thesanio complaints nreworthless imitations, w liichfitn unrivalled excellence, lame and popularity have brought into the market. The medical faculty of Europe mid the United States are unanimous in their recommendations of the Lucina Cordial, nnd have not given their sanction in a single instance that has been authenticated, to any compound for the same purposes. The nature of the maladies relieved by the Lucina Cordial aro generally such as to leave the publication of certificates of uurea out of the i|uustion, or the proprietor could produce a host of the most conclusive testimony to show that the great reputation which it enjoys was not accidentally obtained, but is firmly based upon its positivo, and apparently miraculous, virtues. In all directions nre to be found the happy Barents of healthy offspring, w ho would not have heen so but for this extraordinary preparation. And it is equally potent in the many diseases for w hich it is recommended. Objection lias been naturally made to tho prieo of Lurinu Cordial, because tho tniHli that has been thrown into tho market in opposition to it is sold cbenper; but tho fnct is, tho cordial Cannot be Sold for less, and ought to bo much dearer, as many of the Ingredients which compose it nro nmong the costliest of things hi nutnre ; whereas the others are uiado lip of cheap drugs, worth but little in money, and less in merit; mid it is a fact, that at least one of the getters up of these same tnixt nres, makes it a point to add one bottle of the Luuiua Cordial to a given number of gallons of his compound, so ns to give it some littlu tone and virtuo, and thus solace his conscience.

Irritability, and all Nervous Affoations, Indigestion, Sluggishness of the Liver, Gleet nnd Fluor Albus, and every disease in any way connected with the disorder of tho Procreative Functfms, in till of w hioh it will afford almost immediate relief, and, if used as directed, is almost certain to produce a positive and permanent cure. Persons about to marry, if conscious of any weakness or disability of a certain nature, should take this Cordial, as it will infallibly restore health and viper in a brief period; and where want of offspring is a cause of regret, if recourse bu had to it, thu most boneiicial results may be anticipated with confidence.

At no mineral substance w hatever enters into the oom|>ositiou of this medicine, it may lie offered to the most delicute female, or youngest child, without apprehension. An immense number of persons have used the celebrated Canehalaguii of California, since its very recent introduction into this country by Mr. Gay: and they all ooncnr in stating that one of its most astonishing properties is its immediate and cth (lu.il action upon the blood. A freer and more rapid circulation is at once produced, and the slightest wound will readily prove how liquid and pure the ldood at once becomes. Its action is felt through every vein of the body, with the most invigorating power; it is not like bleeding, which relieves the system by conveying from it ?nly the purer and more liquid limpid Mood, and leaves its stagnant and vitiated particles behind; nor like transfusion and injection, which add to it a fluidity at the expence of its quality; but it creates, as it were, a new and healthy blood, nna imparts new life and action to every part of the body. So long us the blood is pur# ami healthy, no infection, however malignant, can take deep hold of the sy stem, and the SPASMODIC C II O I.

'1 he terror of lever and ague, in crossing the Isthmus of Panama, and at the qljj REGI0NS, reeds no longer to exist; for a single hottlo of the Canchalagua will break up and eradicate this dreaded disease, even if of long standing. A single bottle of the same trill be found to contain one-third more dores than a quart bottle of Sarsaparilio. whilst, from its condensed fertn, the freight on the saniewill not be one-fourth as much; besides this, it contains no sjrup or ingredient likely to ferment and sour ia warm climates. CANCHALAOUA va. SARSAPARII,I,A. Tiif. annexed letter, from an eminent lawyer, is made ptiblio by the proprietor of (lay's Canchalagua, as a just tribute to the extraordinary virtues of this Cafilornia plant;? N onritAMFTOir, February 7, 1S49. Dear Sir?I have long wished to see you, that 1 might give you an accurate account of the remarkable cure of my only daughter, of a violent case of scrofula. She is now almost three years of age. In February last, putrid sores upon the lips, face, and glands made their appearance, and increased with fearful rabidity; one of her eyes became so badly ulcerated, that to all appearance it could never again be restored. This continued for six weeks, the child being a most horrible eight, and the hearts of her parents almost broken. During the whole of this period we used Sarsaparilla in large quantities, but the disease was not arrested in the least. While the disease was still at its height, 1 happened one day to call at the store of your very gentlemanly agent In this place, and relating the mnnner In wnlch our ohild was al'.lictcd, h? advised me to make a trial of your Canehalugua. 1 took but one bottle, having no confidence in it; but commenced giving it according to your directions, stopping all other medicines at once; and in Just 11 \ o days the swelling visibly decreased, the ulcer began to heal, and she improved rapofly for three weeks, and, to our very great joy, was apparently cured? less tliim two bottles having been used. Naming this rnse to some of our incredulous friends, they seemed to think the cure must in part liuve been effected by the use of the Sarsaparilla; and it was not easy, under the circumstances. to argue against that opinion ; but now for the proof. W lien the child appeared to be perfectly cured,we stopped giving her your extract, supposing all was safe; but in twenty-live days the same eruptions, running at the eye, and swelling boron to return. W e waited five days to see if it would amount to anything serious. It increased rapidly as before. We again commenced giving her your medicine, and in live days, (the same period of time as before.) she began to grow better; and in about two weeks was well again. We continued giving the extract for throe or four weeks longer, and then stopped ts use entirely. From that day to tills, the child has been perfectly well, and is now as lino a picture of health as was ivcr seen; not a scar or pit remains to mar her beauty. My lather, Isaac Hodges, of North Adams, Mass., a physiian, came to sec us, with the intention of prescribing for lier, tut ns we were using your medicine w ith success, and the thild improving rapidly, he did not condemn it. hut loft ,is own prescription to be used in ciiso your extract failed. It is needless to add, that wu bad no occasion for it. and I im sure be will now recommend your medicine in similar ascs. As for myself, I ask of every one who has any alfliein of ibis kind to make a trial of your Invaluable Canohala ua, and 1 urn certain they will be rewarded tenfold.

The element! of which this Syrup is composed arc simple Ilcrbs and Hoots, tlio modieiuul properties of which purify the Mood, strengthen the system, and give a healthy tone to the Lungs and Digestivo Organs. Its operation upon tho system is mild, yet elYeaeiuus; it loosens the phlegm, whioh creates ae much difficulty when tight; it rclievua tho cough; it assists nature to expel from the ayatein nil diseased matter, by expectoration, which if retained produeeacoiiHUinption; it ripens the mutter in nn abeceai or tubercle, and then causes ita expulsion fr< m the eyatem. at the same time xoothiug the irritated parts, healing the laceration, and producing a healthy action; it regulates the bowels w ithout the aid of purgative medicines; it allays the molt troublesome cough, without injuring the system as other mediidncs generally do. IIISTORY or sciienck's PULMONIC SYRUP.?In one important particular, the medicine here offered presents stronger claims to public attention than any othor preparation professing to have similar remedial virtues; inasmuch as Joseph ll.Solienck, tho proprietor of this Syrup, was actually restored by it from the last stage of Consumption to sound health, as may be seen from the following abridged history of liis cose. A more particular account of his cure is contaiuud in a publication called " A History and Description of the Character und Variety of Consumption," w liich is distributed gratuitously from the principal offices anda gencies of Mr. Sclienck, in almost every part of the country. From the fucts hero stated and certified beyond the possibility of rnvil, it will be observed thut there is nothing merely theoretical or s|>cculativc in the curative properties of this Syrup. Nothing is tsken for grauted; the proprietor offers in advance of a mass of evidence, his own case, w hich is remarkable, but ly no means without a parallel in the history of this medicine; (or other cures havo been performed by it equally surprising and as well authenticated. It may be remarked in passing, however, that the unitals of medical science do not furnish a single instance wherein pulmonary diso&se had been allowed to proceed so far as in the case of Mr. Schonck, and w us then cured by medical treatment; in fact, the most eminent writers among the regular faculty havo stuted that such a result is impossible. Ity no medicines whatever, either regular or irregular, except Eohenck's 1'ui.mo.vio Hv111 r, has such an extreme case been successfully treated. The reader is hero called on to observe that the testimony offered hy Mr. Schenck in his own oase and in others, differs materially from the " certiltcate system," in general use among the venders of pateut medines. Tho persons who certify, subscribe and testify on oath to the merits of this Syrup, arc real persons, many of whom occupy high station, social mid political, as will clearly appear from un examination of the pamphlet referred to abuvc, and also from what follows:? In the year 1KW, Mr. Sehenck, then residing in Philadelphia, was declared by several eminent physicians, among tlium l>r. l'arrish, to be in one of tho obstinate stages of Pulmonary Consumption. The symptoms were appalling, iueluding an incessant cough, raising of blood, severe pain in the breast, hectlo fever, night sweats, and, in fact, all the indications of appr?nching death. His recovery was universally deemed impossible, w hen, w ith a view to rrlieva the distressing syiiintoins, without presuming to indulge in the hope of a cure, he commenced the use of this medicine. Ita beneficial effects were immediately seen. The expectoration became oopious, an incredible quantity of yellow matter mixed with clotted blood, was discharged from the lungs, aftor which his convalescence was rapid, and to the amazement of all his acinaintances, including the physicians, in about three weeks his health was pcilcrlly icslorcd. Sixteen years nave passed away, and there has been no return of the disease, ami Mr. Schcnck is now enabled to attend to his active duties with as much vigor as at any time in his previous life. For a more particular account of this astonishing cure, seo Mr. Sehcnok's pamphlet, page 8, w here the testimony of many of the prinoipal inhabitants of tiie neighborhood where he lived, including members of Congress, Judges of tho Court, other gentlemen in high office, members of the bar, physicians, merchants, &o., Sic., IS adduced t<> establish the whole train of facts, so that not the least doubt can remain in tke minds of the most skeptical. The fame of this euro, which was almost ostcomed miraculous, soon extended to a great distance, and Air. Schonck having become possessor of the original recipe, and highly improved it in the mode of preparation, hail so many applications for the medicine, that he was at last obliged to devote his whole time to the manufacture. It was found that repeated experiments, in every variety of pulmonic disease, confirmed all tho expectations which the Syrup had raised, and proved that its virtues were more extensively applicable than had been anticipated. A great variety of diseases, some of them pronounced incurable by the most experienced and skilful ductors; yielded to the gentle, yet powerful iutluunouof the Pulmonic Syrup. It would require a volume to contain oven a brief outlino of Ihs numerous cures w hich have been effected by the medicine. Tlio following examples are selected from the pamphlet prepared by Sir. Schenck for gratuitous circulation:? BRONCHITIS. Mrs. Sarah Pcarr, residing at No. XJ'J Race street, Philadelphia, about four years ago was attacked by the most distressing symptoms of Ilroncliitis?pain in the breast, troublesome cougli, sore throat, ke, and after the lapse of a year the disease assumed n most threatening and fatal nppsaranco. She had severe pains in her side and stomach, her throat was in a dreadful condition, so sore that she could suurculy articulato a syllable. She had a high fever every day, violent headache, creeping ohillr, and profuse niijlit sweats. She was ulso afflicted with total loss of appetite, costiveness, and general debility. Iler physician despaired of giving her any relief, a* no food or medicine would remain on her stomach. At this time site begun tin use of Sill LACK'S PULMONIC SYRUP, which Immediately bloke the eough, and WM tho lirst article w hich her stomach would retain since the commencement of her illness. A natural and healthy warmth wna restored to the extremities, which had lately become as cold as marble, the exj'octornlion w as free, and so?n ceased entirely. Hut w liat surprised every one w as, that after using several bottles of tlie byrup, tlio affected side and breast broke out in about twenty large biles, by the discharge of which tlio disease was expelled from her system, uud she was soon restored to perfect ilea 1th, which she has since enjoyed without interruption. Her cure was WWHIsMt Mrs. licarr, whose certificate may be seen at our office in Philadelphia, likowiso testifies to several other cures not less surprising than her on n, w liich she has know n to be performed by this Syrup. She will satisfy all Inquiries at her residence above mentioned. This ease exhibits a peculiarity of the Syrup, in cleansing the system, sometimes by expectoration, uud sometimes by eruptions and cutaneous discharges. The Pulmonic Syrup is prepared by J. Q.

MEDICAL FACULTY, AS WELL AS THE PUBUc, are struck with wonder at tho numerous cures made daily by this extraordinary medicine, and is now acknowledged by many of our ino.-t eminent physicians to lie a certain nnd speedy enre for tubercular Consumption, in its worst lages. It has been roeommended by that eminent physician, Dr. Mott, and is constantly used in the Marine Hospital at Savannah, On., by Dr. Arnold, the senior physician of the Hospital. The London Lancet, London Medical Journal, Uraithwaite's Ketroapeet, and all other of the London Medical Journals, have spoken in praise, many tirnus, of the surprising effects of DR. HASTINGS' PRKPARATION. It lute been thoroughly triod, not only in tho Hospital under the ehnrgc of Dr. Hastings, in London, hut also by all the first phjrsyeians of England, and all have fully endorsed it ai an nnrivulled remedy in Consumption, and all other diseases of tho Lungs. The following are a few of tlio opinions expressed by the Medical Faculty of England. Dr. Williamson, of Manohester, thus writes: UNDER ITS INFLUENCE. " I have scon the emaciated being, on whoso brow death had seemed to have set his seal, acquire iavlgoration and strength ?and exchange his early mornings of intense suffering and distressing cough, for the calm repose w hich alone accompanies sound health." I?R. WARE, OF LIVERPOOL. Says?" I Tegard Hastings' Syrup of Naphtha as one of tha first Medical discoveries ol any age, and consider its agonoy in curing Consumption as established beyond all doubt or question." Dr. Boyd, of Lancaster. "Ilails it as tho great consumptive antidote and enter' and Dr. Hamilton, of Bath, pronounces it " the only known remedy which may be Ircliea on for removing tubercles from tlio lungs, and preventing formation of others." A single bottle will prove its efficacy. All the proprietor asks is the trial of one bottle, the action of which witf prove to the patient the virtue of this medicine. Cough*, cold*. lironchitiH, (Iodines, asthma, night aweats, and spitting of lilood are cured in n surprisingly short space of time; the severest colds having yielded to the treatment of the Naphtha fyrup In the short space of forty-eight hours.? James Western, of Tontine, Michigan, was attacked with Spitting of blood, and could obtain no relief until h? tried HASTINGS' NAPHTHA, which starred it in half an hour.

AMONG rOl'DI.AR ERRORS. There is prnlmlily no one more mischievous than that which supposes that cutaneous eruption can be removed liv deluging the stomach with so vailed Sareunarilla, and other wishy wnshy decoctions, pills, electuaries, ko. Tlie error is not only vulgar, bat exceedingly pernicious, inasmuch as tlie slops not only cause a large drain upon the purse, but actually tend to nggravate the deformity they pretend to cure. The medical faculty have, time and again, demonstrated that diseases of the tegument can only he removed liy outward application, especially liy washes, and that for this purpose nothing is so pre-eminently valuable as Dr. Gourauo's ltali&u Medicated Soap. Indeed, the usefulness of this exquisite emollient, in softening, clarify ing and whitening the cuticle, has passed into a proverb. If the natural functions of the skin are depressed, and the harmony of action w bleh should exist between the external surface of the body nml the vital machinery within, is thus destroyed, the indications of the change are usually developed in tho form of Dimples, lilutcbes, Pustules, or some more speeitle form of Cutaneous disease.

Pnn.OSOPIIY OF WORMS IN TIIE SKIN. Many young persons?especially those of full Imbim, or those who indulge hi rich food?are very much annoyed by tho appearance of black spots upon the sides of the nose, on tho upper lip, ilia clitn, tho fdroliead, Ike., resembling; grains of gunpowder sticking in the skin. W hen the skin is roughly spneezed, a small worm like substance protrudes, having a black head. The supposition, however, that they are in reality worms, is erroneous. 1 liese spots are occasioned by nn undue accumulation of the fatty matter which is separated from tho blood for the purpose of lubricating the skin, and this overplus chokes up the pores and concretes. The dust floating in the air adheres to the greasy substanco, and causes the black speek. This gives the face a dirty and disgusting appearance, and the remedy of squeezing, so universally resorted to, is not ouly painful but frequently useless. Very often the ovur distension of the pores causes iuflumwutiou and painful pimples. Tho only certnln remedy for this nffeetion is to wash the fuoe with warm water and GOURAUD'S ITAMAN MEDICATED SOAP. Mothers should always use it iu washing their babes. It is besides delicious for shaving, as it can be used in bard or salt water as well ns soft. It is, moreover, an infallible romody for scurvy and no t'uliforuiun snould go to sua without a supply. Dr. Cnuraud rufers to Mr. Kahiuenu, the celebrated proprietor of the New York salt-water baths, iu proof of th? latter. CERTIFICATES.

As a last resource, I risked, rather foolishly, $.1 for six quart bottles of sarsaparilln. I innocently swulluwed the whole, and became quite debilitated, without the slightest abatement of the itching. At length a friend, to whom I mentioned my case, exclaimed?"H'liy don't you get a half dollar j cake of the famous Medicated Soap of Mr. Otuiraud?" I took | his advice, and with one cake washed the skin. I ain not only entirely relieved from the itching, but also have the pleasure of feeling that there is a briskness and smoothness to the whole surface of my skin I never before experienced.

Dr. Townsend's Surssparilla is unequalled in oases of the Chills ami Ft> or and Ague. The following letter is only one of hundreds that we hate received from the South uud West of like character. Osweoo, Mich., Oct 22, 1W. Dr. Towivsrivn?Dear Sir,?1 purchased for my wife two bottles of Sarsajiarilla of your agent, Mr. MoN'air, of Kalamazoo, to try it fur the Fever and Ague. Ilefura 1 had finished the first bottle, it appeared to warm tho blood, and every other day, when the Chills nnd Fever appeared, they were less violent; aud before sho had finished the bottle, she was entirely relieved, and she was much better than she had been before she took the Ague. A lady that had been very sick with the Chills and Fever, but had broke them with quinine, and was left In a very weak and distressing state, and troubled exceedingly with the Ague I'ako, seeing tho otfeot that it had on my wife, alio sent and procured a few bottles, and it restored her in a few wooks to complete health. Your Sareaparilla Is, without doubt, unequalled in diseases incident to tho West, aud if you think that this communication will be of uso, you are at liberty to use it as you choose. Yours respectfully, CHARLES n. SWAIN, RHEUMATISM. This is only one of more thnn four thousand oases of Rheumatism that Dr. Townsend's Snrsaparilla has cured.

She is fast becoming ruggi d and hearty, for which wu feel grateful. Yours, rospeetfullr, JOHN BUTLER, Jr. FEMALE MEDICINE. Dr. Townsend's Snrsaparilla Is a sovereign and speedy sura for lnsipient Consumption, llarrenness. Prolapsus Utori, or Falling of the Womb, Costivencsn, l'iles, Leucorrhcca, or Whites, obstructed or difficult Menstruation, Incontinence of Urine, or involuntary discharge thereof, and for the general prostration of the system?no matter whether the rosult of inherent cause or causes, produced by irregularity, illness, or accident. Nothing can l.e more surprising than its invigorating effects on tho human frame. Fersons all weaknoss and lassitude, from taking it, at onee become robust and full of energy, under its influence; it immediately counteracts the nerveiessness of tho female frame, w hich is the groat cnuse of Barrenness. It will not he expected of us, in casns of go delicate n nature, to exhibit certificates of cures performed, but w e can assure the alllicted, that hundreds of enses have been reported to us. Thousands of cases, where families have been without children, after using a few bottles of this invaluable medicine, bare been blessed with flue, healthy offspring. TO MOTHERS AND MARRIED LADIES. This Extract of Sarsaparllla has been expressly prepared In reference to female complaints. No female who has reason to suppose she is npprnaohing that critical period, " The turn of life," should neglect to tnke it, as it is a certain preventive for any of the numerous and horrible diseases to which females are subject at this time of life. This period may be delaved for several years, by using this modicine. Nor is it less valuable for those who are approaching womanhood, as it is calculated to assist nature, by quickening the blood and invigorating the system. Indeed, this medicine is invaluable for all the delicate diseases to which women are subject. It braces the whole system, renews permanently the natural energies, by removing the impurities of the body, not so far stimulating as to produce subsequent relaxation, which is the case of most medicines taken for female weakness and disease, fly using a few bottles of this medicine, many severs and painful surgical operations way be prevented. GREAT BLESSING TO MOTHERS & CHILDREN. It is the safest and most effectual modicine for purifying the system and relieving the suffering attendant upon child-birth, ever discovered. It strengthens both the mother and child, prevents pain and disease, increases and enriches the food; those w ho have used it, think it is indispensihle. It is highly useful both before and after confinement, as it prevents diseases attendant upon child-birth?in C'ostivaness, Files, Cramps, Swelling of tho Feet, Despondency, Heartburn, Vnmitinir I'nin in the Hack and Loins. False l'alns. llctnnrr hage; nnd in regulating the secretions and equalizing the circulation, it has no equal. The great beauty of tliia raedioine ia. it is always safe, nnd the most delicate uao it moat successfully; very few cases require any other medicine, in some a little castor oil, or magnesia, it useful. Exercise in the open air, nnd light rood, with this medicine, will always insure a safe and easy confinement. NOTICE TO THE LADIES. Those that imitate Dr. Townscnd's Sarsaparilla hare invariably called their stuff n great remedy for females, (too., &o., and hare copied onr bills and circulars which relate to the complaints of women, word for word?other men who put up medicines, hare, since the great success of Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla in complaints incident to females, recommended theirs, although previously they did not. A number of those mixtures, pills, Ike., are injurious to females, as they aggravate disease, and undermine the constitution. SCROFULA CURED. This certificate conclusively proves that this Sarsaparilla has perfect control over the most obstinate diseases of the blood. Three persons cured in one house is unprecedented. THREE CHILDREN. Dr. Townsnvn?Dear Sir: I havo the pleasnre to inform you that three of my children have been cured of tho scrofula by the use of your excellent medicine.

I would not have troubled yon with these few lines, but that I am impelled by a sense of gratitude, for myself and wife, to give utterance to ourlsineere and heartfelt emotions. My wife has been perceptibly sinking for S"ine three year# or more, in consequence of her groat anguish and sulloring Souie months before and during confinement; every successive one more and more debilitated.and prostrated her, putting her life in imminent danger, and which was, on the last occasion, despaired of. 1 supposed that this statu of things was inevitable, and resigned myself to meet the worst. At thia time, (now about two months,) I heard your book highly spoken of, as containing some matters reaching my case. <> its receipt and perusal, 1 cannot express to yoa the reliof it afforded my distressed mind, and the jvy Its pages imparted to my wife, ou learning that the groat discovery of M. M. Desomeaux provided a remedy. It opened a prospect to ma, which I little conceived was possible. No pecuniary-consideration can ever repay the obligations I ain under to you, for having been the means of imparting to us the matters contained in "The Married Woman's Private Medical Companion." lint for this, ere another year would have passed over my head, in all human probability, my wife would have been in her grave, and iny children left motherless.

Another Extract. , |L* * , Kentucky May 3, 1829. It is my lot to be united in wedlock to a young mechanio of industrious habits, good disposition, pleasing manners, and agreeable features, excessively fonu of our children and of me ; in short, eminently well i|tinliiied to render himself and family and all around him happy, wero it not for tho besotting sin of drunkenness. About once in every three or four weeks, if he met. either accidentally or purpusely. with some of his friends, of w hom, either real or pretended, his good-natura andflibcrality.procures him many, he is sure to get intoxicated, so as to lose his reason; nuJ, when thus beside himself, ho trades and makes foolish bargains, so much to his disadvantage, thnt he has almost reduced himself and family t* beggary, being no longer able to keep a shop of his own, but obliged to w ork journey-work. W c have not been married unite four years, and have already given being to three dear little ones. Under present circumstauees, what ran can 1 expect will be their fate and mine I 1 shudder at the prsspcct before me. With my excellent constitution and industry, and the labor of my husband, 1 feel able to bring up those little cherubs in decency; but when I seriously consider my situation, I can see no other alternative left for me thau to tear myself nway from the man who, though addicted to occasional intoxication, would sacrifice his life for my sake; and for whom, contrary to mr father's will, I successively refused the hand and wealth of a lawyer and of a preacher; or continue to witness his degradation, und bring into existence, in all probability, a numerous family of helpless nnd destitute children, who, on account of poverty, must inevitably be doomed to a life of ignorance, and consequent vice mid misery.* M.

My Dear Sir?I know you will have the kindness to bear with me in encroaching noon your time, whilo I acknowledge (in behalf of myself ana wife) the obligations we feel ourselves under to you in liuving made known certain matters contained in your most invaluable 'Married Woman's Private Medical Companion.' It has been worth its weight in guld to me. if 1 express myself rather warmly, you will see that I cannot do so too warmly, when I inform you the extent to which I have, through it, been benellttod. I will state my situation w hen 1 obtained your book through the merest curiosity. I look upon it as one of the most fortunate events of my life. I had been married some ten years, and was the father of seven children. 1 was long struggling unceasingly, to the end that 1 might gain a moderate competency, but the results of my utmost exertions at the end left me almnt where 1 was nt the beginning of each year ; and that only with the most stinted economy, sufficing with barely the necessaries of life. Finally, this constant effort was beginning to have its effect upon my health ; 1 folt less capable to endure its continuance, while 1 felt llio necessity ofjpcrseveranee. This constant unceasing struggle on my part was imperative. in consequence of the prostrated condition of my wife (with occasional intermission) for six years, much of the time confined to her bed, and of course incapable of taking the charge and management of housebote affairs. Her condition arose from causes of wnlrh 1 was ignorant. Oh ! what would I have given had I the six years to live over ngnin 1 What would my wife had given to have been spnrcd tho long days nnd still longer nights prostrate on a bed of sickness! All of which would have hern avoided, had I then seen a oopy ?f ' The Married Woman's Private Medical Companion." When 1 obtained it and read it, 1 could not credit the possibility that in a short time my wife would bo restored to health, and myself be enabled to gain a competence. I immediately wrote to you (us you will recollect) for M. M. Pcsomeuux's great Specific for married ladies, for which you are agent, and which yon transmitted by return mail, which was immediately availed of. My wife was rapidly restored to hetvhcalth, and 1 am gradually acquiring a competence for our old age, and .also to leave something to our children. Such, dear sir, has its possession been to me: mny I not bo excused for the expression of the obligation I am under to you 1 I have since endeavored to circulate as wide as possible. and will continue to do so. as I think n? nn? a without a copy. Letters are daily received of this character, unnecessary to present.
