in this country. And as the resident students have change of the
patients, under the direction of the Piofessors, they cannot fail to
acquire a knowledge of practice which will greatly facilitate
their success in after life.
The arrangements for the prosecution of the important depart-
ment of anatomy are unsurpassed in this country. In addition to
the abundance of subjects for which Baltimore has always been so
remarkable, owing to the liberal atnd enlightened views of her
citizens, the arrangements of the dissecting-rooms of this Univer-
sity are such as to afford peculiar facilities.
In the different departments the professors are well supplied
with the essential means of demonstrating whatever is required.

PATENT FLOOR OIL CLOTHS, for rooms, halls, vestibules,

duced prices, (any size wphout seam,) very superior in point of
age, durability, and richness of colors.
They are manufactured on the highly approved plan of Hare

process in the manufacturing, without which a good Floor Oil Cloth
cannot be made.
The Philadelphia Patent Floor Oil Cloth Manufactory" was
the first, and for many years thie only one, of the kiid in the Unit-
ed States. It is now about 36 years in successful operation, and
on a scale calculated to manufacture upwards of 100,000 yards of

manufacture equal to the imported in every respect, and will be
sold at least 25 or 30 per cent. h.wer.

Mr. R. THOMPSON : DEAR SI : I had, some weeks since, an
attack of the Pleurisy, which left me with a cough and general
pains through my limbs ; my coughing was attended with much
pain about the region of the stomach. It was with much difficulty
I could give any attention to my business. On Wednesday night
I took upwards of three tablespoonsful of your cough sirup upon
going to bed-this relieved me greatly. I took one tablespoon-
fiul more, with a little warm toddy mixed with butter. On the
Monday following I was entirely restored; my cough and
pains entirely gone. 1 am now at my daily occupation, enjoying
better health than I did previous to my attack of the pleurisy.
Any one wishing to try this medicine can see me at the dying

Mr. R. THOMPSON! DEAR SIt: About the 1st of August last I
took a cold, the consequence of which was a spell of sickness of
three months' duration, most of whileh time 1 have been under time
physician's hands, confined to my bed ; and in the opinion of the
doctor I was likely to continue so during the winter. About the
17th of October 1 commenced taking your Cough Sirup, being
still confined to my bed. I have used two bottles, and I am now
up and able to go about, attending to my business in doors and out,
and nearly restored to my usual good health. Should any one do-
sire to try this remedy, they can see me at my house, near the
corner of4J street and Maryland avenue.
WASHINGTON, Nov.3, 1840.
Mr. R. TmioMPsON: Last winter I was suffering with a cough,
which had distressed me for months. I commenced taking your
Cough Sirup, and, after using two bottles, was entirely relieved.
I amin now in the enjoyment of my usual good health.

TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES.
In my fifth number, fellow-citizens, I took occasion to re-
mark that I wished to say as little as possible of General
JACKSON ; that I spoke of him merely to show the beginning
anti root of that most extraordinary REVOLUTION in the ad-
ministration of our Government which he and his DEMA-
GOouES introduced, and that I wished to come down as soon
as practicable to his successor-a man, I may add, as mar-
vellously little, as General JACKSON was uncommonly great.
The remark first above alluded to came from my heart.
I was desirous of saying nothing that might disturb the peace
of the old age of General JACKSON. But, on reflection, I
doubt whether this course is consistent with what is due to
the subject, and to the safety and welfare of the country;
When liberty is assailed, my countrymen, as ours is as-
sailed, patriotism should be STERN. I call on you to make
no compromise with DESPOTISM. Our liberties are still in
awful jeopardy. It is a monstrous and a melancholy fact,
that a vast mass of the People yet sustain the corrupters and
betrayers of their country. I perceive by the late returns
from some of the States, that despotism dies hard. I look at
this with deep grief, with a holy shame, and with fearful
Whigs! You are a band of virtuous brothers and noble
patriots. For Gad's sake (I speak in the fear of God)-for
God's sake, STAND BY YOUR WORK ; exhort your honest but
deceived opponents to come and unite with you in defence of
this wronged and insulted country. Bat to the demagogues
and their unprincipled crew, be like the Lions of Judah, and
the trumpet and the array before which the heathen walls of
As to General JACKSON, deeply is he to blame. He brought
a great curse upon his country. But I am willing to find for
him, perhaps in justice, certainly to gratify my own kindly
feelings, and those of his friends, something of palliation.
He was not born for a republic. His temperament was that
of a king-an absolute monarch. The demagogues of his
party knew it was so. They knew that he would rule by the
DESPOTISM of his WILL, and that, by flattering that despotism,
they could turn it to their own advantage. At the same time
they counted upon success by beguiling the common sense
and misdirecting the patriotism of the country through the
instrumentality of terms of virtue which belong to the COUN-
TRY, and not to them, and which they filched from her holy
People of the United States, I venerate true democracy.
As Heaven is my judge, I was born a democrat, have always
lived a democrat, and could not possibly, as I think, be other-
wise. It is my nature-it is interwoven with every nerve and
fibre of my frame. I am for the equal rights of all; for uni-
versal education ; for universal suffrage; for virtue, religion,
peace, plenty, and happiness. I could not, and by my God
would net, stand by and see a single hair of the head of the
meanest citizen wronged. But a pretended democracy-the
cant of unprincipled demagogues, is a political NUISANCE, and
is more dangerous to the liberties of a free government than
the open traitor. It is this that deceives the People, and
makes them instruments in the hands of political hypocrites to
undermine the Government and loosen all its foundations.
But further as to General JACKSON: He was an IGNORANT
man. He possessed strong native talents, but they were un-
cultivated in his youth, either by study or reflection. He
was markedly ignorant of the nature and texture and relative
operation of the different forms and principles of government,
both in the abstract and as to matters of history-that is, he
was ignorant of the spirit of law, both fundamental or con-
stitutional law, and legislative enactments; and his notions of
finance, the course of trade, and the true interests of the Pub-
lic, were uncommonly crude. But, more than all, he gave
a fearful direction to this ignorance by mistaking energy for
knowledge, and WILL for patriotism.

TRIUMPH OF TRUTH OVER ERROR.
The long agony is over: the reign of misrule,
folly, corruption, and terror is at an end : the in-
cubus has been removed, and the nation will be
again restored to its pristine vigor, healthfulness,
and purity. What a debt of gratitude do we owe
the Great Disposer of human destinies, and how
deeply should we feel the blessing he has thus, in
his Divine mercy, vouchsafed to bestow upon us.
Nothing but the Divine interposition of the Al-
mighty has saved a suffering People from the evils
and misery they have so long endured, and which
have been brought upon them by the profligacy
and wretched fatuity of those who have been
placed in power. The Government was verging
rapidly to a confirmed despotism, and the country
had reached the very brink of ruin and bankruptcy.
Power had blinded our rulers ; the Deity seemed
to have given them up to blindness of mind and
hardness of heart, till they had the madness to
conceive they were omnipotent, and could com-
mit any outrage and folly they pleased with entire
impunity. Every step they took was a blunder,
and every act was one of oppression, folly, or
madness. The whole country was afflicted with
a horrid paralysis, and men began to despair of the
Republic. The history of the past twelve years
will be read with gloom and sorrow by the future
patriot of this country, and posterity will wonder
why an intelligent People had so quietly and so
long submitted to the destructive and outrageous
policy of men whose whole political career was a
tissue of abominations, and whose acts proved
them to be not only imbecile, but, in a high de-
gree, corrupt and profligate. The Almighty in-
flicted upon us this curse for our transgressions,
that we might repent of them in sackcloth and
ashes. We have been, indeed, purified by suffer-
ing, and let us return thanks to that great and
glorious Being who has brought us at last out of
our tribulations, and placed the nation once more
in a position calculated to confer happiness and
prosperity upon the People. The dark cloud has
been dissipated, and the light of Heaven is again
let in upon our fortunes. Let us rejoice, and ex-
press our deep-felt gratitude to the Almighty.
One day of thanksgiving should be set apart
throughout the whole land, for the blessing thus
bestowed upon us by a kind and beneficent Pro-
"Blessed be the Lord God, who only doeth
wondrous things. And blessed be his glorious
name forever, and let the whole earth be filled with
his glory. Amen and amen." W.

Gen. HARRISON arrived in the city this morning from North
Bend in excellent health. A little accident occurred to him
yesterday, which shows that he is not quite so decrepit as his
enemies represent him. He was riding over a part of his farm
through which the tunnel of the Whitewater Canal passes,
in a place which seemed as smooth and as well covered with
grass as any other part of the field; suddenly he felt his
horse sinking, and thought he was about to fall ; the General
sprang from him, anl alighted upon the firm ground, and the
horse fell from 15 to 20 feet into a kind of sink hole, caused
by the tunneling beneath. The General escaped without the
SCENES IN GEORGIA.
Letter to the editors from Lee county, Georgia,
dated October 24, 1840.
"'Gen. HARRISON'S majority in November will be much
greater if the vote given is as large as the October vote. This
may not be so, as many seem to be rejoicing over our victory,
and the defeat of three of those on the Van Buren ticket
who have so lately come to his support, and in opposition to
their old friends. It should certainly be a source of rejoicing,
when it is remembered that so much was expected of them,
and so little accomplished by them, for the Administration.
Mr. Secretary FoRsY'TI, too, came to the aid of the Admin-
istration, and his frank is found on many bundles of the
'dirty sheet' or Extra Globe, addressed to the inferior courts
of the different counties. And Mr. VAN BUREN's letter, on
the case of Lieut. HOOE, in bundles ofren, with the Globe's
expose, are sent, with printed addresses, to the inferior court
of the different counties-the name of the county, and post
office, with the frank of Mr. FOOSrTH only in writing. Who
would have believed that the Hon. John Forsyth, of Georgia,
who, in May last, disdained to be mixed up' in the contest
for Vice President with Col. Jo.NsorN and others, would have
suffered his name run in Georgia for this office? And then
engage in sending documents of this character to judicial
officers of the different counties in Georgia, to be used by
them to sustain a sinking Administration, and himself, not
as Vice President, but as Secretary of State 1
"The excited indignation of the court in this county was
manifested by an order for the burning of the documents,
and directing that he should be furnished with a copy of the
order of court."
THnEE WHITE MEN TAEeN.-The Appalachicola Gazette
of the 24th ult. states that a few days since, in Middle Flori-
da, three white men were taken on suspicion of aiding the
Indians in their depredations on the lives and property of our
citizens. It seems a company of men were on a scout in
search of Indians, accompanied by several of the bloodhounds,
and were led by several trails tothe house of these men, which
at length induced the commanding officer to have them ar-
rested, and on examination found they had scarcely freed
themselves from the paint with which they had been painted
to prevent detection. They also found, on still closer exami-
nation, other proofs of their connexion with the Indians.
NAVAL.-The New York Sut of Friday says, Commander
JOHN C. LONG yesterday assumed the command of the sloop
of war Boston, vice Commander STRINGHAM, detached. The
United States sloop of war Concord, Commander BOERAM,
fitted out at Boston for the West India station, will be sent
to the Brazils instead. The store ship Relief, now loading at
the navy yard with stores for the Pacific, will sail very soon,
and affords an excellent opportunity for forwarding letters to
officers, &c. on that station.
GEN. URREA.-A traveller, recently from Mexico, reports
that General Urrea had joined the Federalist army under
Canales, near Mier, on the Rio Grande. The presence of
this officer will he a valuable accession to the Federalists in
that quarter. We hadi heard i-. h1i.' of him since he re-
tired with his troops from the M.-,c,n capital. With his
co-operation, it may be expected that something decisive will
be accomplished on the Rio Grande.-N. 0. Bulletin.

QUESTION OFP WAR OR PEACE IN EUROPE.
FROM THE BALTIMORE AMERICAN.
M. THiERS, in his reply to Lord PALMERSTON,
published in the London Spectator of October 17,
sets forth at some length the policy which France
has determined to pursue on the Turco-Egyptian
question, and endeavors to show that her course
all along has been consistent with her conduct and
declarations at the first.
The negotiations among the great Powers touch-
ing this question began at the time when Constan-
tinople was threatened by the army of IBnAHIM.
The Turkish fleet had gone over to MEHEMET ALI,
and the power of the Porte seemed to be wholly
inadequate to ward offthe impending danger which
hung over the capital of the Empire. The inter-
ference of the great Powers now took place in
order to preserve the integrity and independence
of the Ottoman empire." France united with the
rest in this determination. A few extracts from
Lord PALMERSTON'S note, and the reply of M.
THtERS, will show how the present differences
between the negotiating parties began. After
stating the object disinterestedly pursued by Great
Britain, and by her proposed to (lthe other Powers,
viz. the integrity and independence of the Otto-
man Empire, and that for this end it would be ne-
cessary to reduce the extravagant pretensions of
the Viceroy of Egypt within narrow limits, Lord
PALMERSTON proceeds to say in substance:
That 'such has been the declaration of England at every
period of this negotiation. France, by the collective note
signed at Constantinople on the 27th of July, 1832, and by a
circular addressed on the 17th of the same month to all the
Courts-France had appeared to adhere to the common prin-
ciple, by proclaiming as absolutely as the other Cabinets the
independence and integrity of the Ottoman empire. But she
subsequently departed from this principle, by demanding in
favor of the Viceroy a dismemberment of the empire, which
is incompatible with its existence. Desirous of securing the
co-operation of France, the Four Powers who have signed the
treaty of the 15th of July have made reiterated attempts to
bring her tojoin in their views. They have even made con-
siderable sacrifices tuo her, for they added to Egypt, heredita-
rily granted the Pashalic of Acre without the fortress, and
they afterwards consented to join the fortress itself to their
former proposal. But all these sacrifices were of no avail;
France persisted in her departure from the principle which the
five Cabinets had thought it their duty to proclaim in com-
"That 'the other Courts could not follow her in this
course. However they might desire to secure her co-opera-
tion, they were driven to separate from her, andt to sign an
act which ought not to surprise her, for France had been
warned more than once that if they did not o'me to an under-
standing, it would, after all, be necessary for the Four Powers
to settle a question on whish the Five could agree.' "
The point of the charge of inconsistency urged
against France is forcibly expressed in these
It the early stages of the negotiation, the declarations of
principles made by the Government of France led her Ma-
jesty's Government to imagine that the two Governments
could not but agree as to the means of carrying their common
principles into execution. If the intentions and opinions of
the French Government upon the means of execution differ-
ed, even in the outset of the negotiations, from those of the
British Government, then France has no right to represent,
as an unexpected schism between England and France, a
difference which the French Government knew all along to
exist. If the intentions and opinions of the French Govern-
ment as to the means of execution have undergone a change
since the negotiations began, then France has no right to im-
pute to Great Britain a divergence of policy, which arises
from a change on the part of France, and not from a change
on the part of Great Britain. But in any case, when four
out of the five Powers found themselves agreed upon one
course, and when the fifth had determined to pursue course
entirely different, it could not reasonably be expected that the
four should, in deference to the fifth, give up opinions in
which they were daily more and more confirmed, and which
related to a matter of vital importance to the great and per-
manent interests of Europe."
After reviewing the whole of Lord PALMER-
STON'S statements, M. THIERS sums up the result
in the following propositions :
That France has been inconsistent.
That she had desired, and desires no longer, the integ-
rity and independence of the Ottoman empire.
That the tour Powers have made repeated sacrifices to
That they at last offered her an ultimatum, based upon
a former proposal of her own ambassador.
That they did not proceed further until that ultimatum
had been refused.
That they have reason to be surprised at the manner in
which France has received the treaty of the 15th July, since,
in accordance with her own declarations, it might be expected
that she would have given to this treaty more than a passive
assent, and at least her moral support."
M. THIERS proceeds to reply to these charges
in detail. He explains what were the views and
wishes of France when she united with the other
Powers to preserve the integrity of the Ottoman
empire." The meaning of that phrase was, that
Constantinople was to be defended on the one
hand from the threatened march of IBRAHIM PACHA,
and on the other from the exclusive protection
and occupation by a Russian army. At the early
stages of the negotiations, Russia held back, and
recommended non-intervention. England and
France were united, and Austria and Prussia came
over to their views. At this period England pro.
posed to force the Turkish fleet from the hands of
MEHEMET ALI, and here began the unfortunate
difference between France and England. This
difference was widened when England came to
niave ucua, we t prtsuiie,, ithat itrom ie cornm-
mencement of the late and still existing discus-
sions between France and England-the latter
acting, apparently, as the mouth-piece also of
Russia, Austria, and Prussia-the opinion has
been confidently expressed that the Eastern
question" would be finally settled without a gene-
ral war, or a war between France and England.
Perhaps they may wish to know how we think the
question will be settled, and upon what reason-
ings we found this our opinion.
As to the first, we have supposed, from the be-
ginning, that the Pacha would be compelled to
give up Syria, while Egypt would be confirmed to
him in perpetuity. It will be remembered that
originally the proposition was to give him Egypt
in perpetuity, and Syria for life. The advantages
of that proposition he lost by not accepting it
within the time limited. After that time he was
allowed a certain number of (lays within which to
accept Egypt in perpetuity alone; but it is to be
observed that no third alternative was proposed, in
case of his not accepting this second within the
time. His refusal was to be followed by coercive
measures-but to what end ? Not, as we under-
stand it, to destroy him altogether, but to compel
his acceptance of that second and final proposi-
tion, to wit, the uncontrolled possession of Egypt,
with the abandonment of his pretensions to Syria.
At the last moment he accepted this proposi-
tion, but at the same time made an appeal to the
Sultan, the nature of which is not precisely un-
derstood. In it he asked permission to retain
Syria for life, according to the tenor of the first
proposal. In reply to this appeal the Sultan ful-
minated against him an edict of deposition.
Whether there was or was not any thing in his
appeal to justify such a harsh measure, nobody
seems to know ; but, at all events, the deposition
seems not to have been expected or approved by
the four Powers. We presume, therefore, that it
will not be enforced, and that Mehemet Ali will
be permitted to remain Pacha of Egypt, with re-
mainder to his children. If there is war at allbe-
tween him attnd the allies, it will be, first, to drive
him out of Syria-second, to repel or prevent
any aggression by him against the Sultan or his
But will France consent to this arrangement?
Undoubtedly. M. Thiers expressly says that she
will-that her action will be limited to the rescue
of Mehemet Ali and his maintenance in the rule
of Egypt. She insists upon the integrity of both
Egypt and Turkey, and if this is respected for
both, she will not oppose the action of the allies
as regards Syria.
But great stress is laid upon the warlike pro-
pensities of the French nation, and their eager
desire to avenge upon England the disasters they
sustained before and in the downfall of Napoleon.
Doubtless there is something in this ; but, after all,
the French are an enlightened people, and not the
mere madmen some of the English journalists
and letter-writers woult have us consider them.
They are powerful, warlike and impulsive; but
they have good sense enough to know the value
of peace, and wilh some exceptions have confi-
dence in their King, arid will sustain him in his
policy, whatever it may be.
And what is his policy? That of an enlighten-
ed statesman-that of peace, industry, and na-

NEW YORK, NOVEMBER 8, 1840.
The Empire State continues good, better, best.
The Whig majority in the State, taking the re-
ports as they have come in, is over 11,000. This
may be reduced to 10,000, but our majority in the
State is as large or larger than ever. There is no
mistake in the substance of all this-and believe
nothing to the contrary.
The Assembly of the Slate is Whig, probably
by 8 majority-certainly Whig. The Senate is
Whig, of course.
Of the Members of Congress, there is yet some
doubt; but, according to the best information, the
Whigs have 21, and the Locofocos 19. There is
a chance that, of this, the Whigs may lose two in
a double district.
The Locofocos of this State and city now give
all up. I have never seen men so desponding, or
more disappointed. Their plight is truly pitiable,
and I have no wish to rejoice the least over them.
Till yesterday, they flattered and deluded them-
selves with hope, and as they have been buoyant,
so they have been desponding. There is a rumor
that last night in their grief they tore to pieces
their own transparency that had been set up in
front of Tammany Hall, and it is quite certain that
they scolded and roundly abused their own editors
of the New Era for the deception they practised
Our friends enjoy their victory with great calm-
ness and moderation. They fully appreciate its
magnitude, but do not wish to wound the feelings
of the defeated party.
From Michigan we have one return. The
Whig majority in Detroit is increased 96.
Massachusetts votes to-morrow. The only in-
terest attending it is to know how large a majority
the State will give for the Whigs.
There is no city news of importance. The
political excitement is subsiding, and there is
much more calmness in the community.
Letter from Fort Brooke, Tampa Bay, East Florida,
October 22, 1840.
FORT BROOKE, TAMPA BAY, (E. F.) OCT. 22, 1840.
This place now presents a very lively aspect; all of the
6th regiment are here, eight companies of the 8th, and four of
the lst. The 3J regiment is expected daily. Rumor says
the 8th will leave for Fort King on the 1st proximo, and our
regiment will leave about the same time, with the exception
of two companies, which are to be left here to galrison the
post. I expect to be stationed at a post on the coast near the
mouth of the Suwannee river.
We have four or five women and two children prisoners,
taken in Middle Florida last spring, and four warriors, taken
by Capt. BEALL while I was absent from the Ferry. Tiger-
tail, with eleven warriors, is in camp about seventeen miles
from this post. Our commanding General and staff were out
to their camp yesterday, and two of the warriors came into
the post to-day. They say that Tigertail will come in to-
morrow. We shall see vat ve shall see." From all I can
learn of what transpired yesterday, it appears that the Indians
are to meet our General at Fort King early next month.
Their desire appears to be to go to Washington to hold a talk
with our great father, and from what I can gather I should
judge that their wishes will be gratified. In the event of
which, I trust our inglorious warfare here will cease.
THE FEMALE UNION BENEVOLENT SOCIETY.
Will you allow me a small space in your columns in which
to call the attention of you, readers to that excellent institu-
tion, the Female Union Benevolent Society? The annual
meeting of this Society was advertised to be held on the 3d
instant, but the excitement consequent upon the then pend-
ing Presidential election was unfavorable to that object, and
the lady managers adjourned the meeting to the 10th inst.,
when it will be held at the Rev. 0. B. Brown's church.
It surely cannot be necessary in any Christian community
to advocate thle cause of benevolence and active and discri-
minating charity; much less to call attention to a society
founded, as the one in question is, on the most liberal basis,
its concerns administered by intelligent females, and its ob-
ject the relief of suffering humanity under whatever shape,
and wherever it may be tound. Against that indiscrimina-
ting mode of relief too often practised in the distribution of
funds bestowed for charitable purposes, which tends not to
the diminution of suffering, but to the increase of sufferers, too
much cannot be urged ; but, in the charity in question, the
lady managers never administer the relief, without rigid in-
vestigation into the character and condition of the applicant.
Their aim is to help those who are anxious to help them-
selves ; to assist those who, for a time, are prevented by sick-
ness or misfortune from following their usual avocations; and
to give temporary relief to such as are suffering under tem-
porary necessity. Their report, which was read on the 3d
instant, makes a forcible appeal to the feelings of our chari-
table citizens, and it is hoped that a crowded assemblage at
this adjourned meeting will give encouragement to the bene-
volent managers of the charity, and efficient support to its
funds. The meeting cannot fail to interest all who attend it,
not only from the nature antd the object of the proceedings,
but also from the advocacy of the institution which will be
afforded by the aadresses of some distinguished gentlemen
who have promised to attend. %*

pATENT PERRYIAN FILTER INKSTAND.-
This novel anI usefl invention ensures an instantaneous
supply of Clear Filtered Ink, iu the cup of the filter, which can
lie returned into the inketaod a, any moment, where it is secured
from injury, and not affected by the atmosphere. The ink, thus
protected, never thickens or moulds, and remains good (or any
length of time, in any climate. The process of filtration causes
the coloring matter to be held in suspension; hence the trouble
and inconvenience occasioned by unsuitable ink, generally found
in ordinary inkstands, are completely obviated by the use of tihe
Filter Inkstand. One of moderate size willcontain sufficient ink
for six or twelve months' writing.
A further supply, of various sizes,just imported, and will be sold

RE a certain cure for every curable disease; because
they not only 1..i., i.-i, cleanse the stomach and bowels
and PURIFY THE tint t, but they alo iouduce a puoperdis-
charge by the Lungs, Skin, and Kidneys; in other words, the)
open all the natural drains, and thus NATURE, the GRANI
PHYSICIAN, is left free to combat and conquer disease.
It should also be borne in mind that the above-named ludiat
Vegetable Pills are so natural to the human CONSTITUTIlON
that not the slightest dread of pain or sickness need be appre-
hended from their use, even by the most delicate; at the same
time, if they be wsed in such a manner as to operate freely by the
bowels, and persevered with for a short time, it will be ABSO-
LUTEILY IMPOSSIBLE FOR DISEASE of any kind T(O
CONTINUE long in the body.
In all disordered motions of the Blood, called Intermuittent, Re

The Indian Vegetable Pills will be found a certain remedy
because they cleanse the Stomach and Bowels of all bilious mat

The Indian Vegetable Pills may be relied on as always certain,
to give relief, and, if persevered with, will most assuredly, anit
without fail, make a perfect cure of the above painful maladies
From three to six of said Indian Vegetable Pills, taken ever)
night on going to bed, will. in a short time, completely rid the
body of all morbid and corrupt humors; and Rheumatism, Gout,
and pain of every description, will disappear as if by magic.
For the same reason, when, from sudden changes of atmosphere,
or any other cause, the perspiration is checked, and those humor,
which should pass off by the skin are thrown inwardly, causing
headach, nausea, and sickness, pains in the bones, watery aom(
inflamed eyes,sore throat, hoarseness, coughs, consumption, rheu.

ONE WORD TO THE SEDENTARY.
Those who labom within doors should remember that they fre

I3HURRAY'S FLUID MAGNESIA.--The following
ITL official report of its merits is founded upon twenty years'
experience by Dr. Coming, Inspector of Army Hospitals, commu-
nicated to the discoverer, Sir James Murray :
I" The Solution of Magnesia is' f-r, I"6 .: inlurl,, } ri. fi al as a
I ,*: t .Ii;. .. I aperient, in 11. .: ..i Irr -t -n-. rAcid.
-... i. 'in\ particularly during pregnancy, febrile com-
plaints, infantile disorders, or sea-sickness.
An ounce or two of the Solution speedily removes heartburn,
acid eructations, sourness, or irregular digestions of females and
In the Army and Navy, it has been found tocompose the stom-
uch in a few minutes, after any excess or hard drinking.
The Solution is of itself an agreeable aperient, but its laxative
properties can he much augmented by taking with it, or directly
dfier it, a little lemon juice mixed with sugar and water, or even
Cream ofTartar Tea; in this manner very agreeableeffervescent
draught can be safely taken at any time during fever or thirst.
S Tlhe antiseptic qualities ofthis Solution, owing to the presence
of so much carbonic acid, have been found very valuable in putrid
and other fevers. As a lotion for the mouth, it sweetens the breath,
and the Magnesia clears the teeth from tartar.
For preventing the evolution or deposition of Uric Acid, in
gout or gravel, the efficacy of the dissolved Magnesia was long
since authenticated by Drs. M'Donnell and Richardson, and Sir
Tire Solution has almost invariably succeeded in removing
the fits, spasms, headaches, and gastri- coughs to which deli-
cate persons are subject from acida and cruities of the stomach

edited by Dr. JAMES JOHNSON, Physician-extraordinary to the late
King, &c. &c. :
Pellucid Solution of Magnesia.-This very useful and ele-
gant preparation we have been trying for some month, as an Ape-
rient ant aucid in dyspeptic complaints, attended with acidity and
constpation, and with very great benefit. It has the advantage
over common Magnesia in being dissolved, and therefore not liable
to accumulate in the bowels. It is decidedly superior to Soda or
Potash, on account of it, aperient quality, and of its having no ten-
dency to reduction of flesh and strength, which the two carbonates
above mentioned certainly tend to, when long continued and taken
in considerable quantities. We hope Sir Janmes Murray, the dis
coverer of the process for preparing this medicine, will take the
trouble to make it more generally accessible to the public in this
metropolis, there being only one or two authorized agents here."
Sir HUMPHREY DAVY testified that this Solution forms soluble
combinations with uric acid salts in cases ofgoutand gravel,there-
hby counteracting their ..-i.'., tendency when other alkalies and

* sHUE FRENCH PILLI--Olall remeuie ever yet uims-
I. covered for the cure of Gonorrhea, Gleets, Female Com-
plaints, &c. &c. these Pills are the most certain.
They possess great advantages over the balsams and all liquid
medicines, by being entirely free from smell, and consequently do
notaffect the breath in thie least, therebypreventing the possibili-
ty ofdiscovery while using them.
Besides this important advantage, they never cause a sickness
of the stomach, and in the early stages of the disease they usually
effect a cure in a few days with little regard to diet or exposure.
In the most obstinate stages ofthe disease,they are equally cer-
tain, having cured many after every other medicine had failed.
