le one of the best Purgative and Liver.Madlcineanow be
fore the public, that acts «a a Cathartic, eaaier, mnder and
mote dfectoal than anyother medicine known. Itisnot
only a Cathartic, hnt a iicer remedy, acting first on the
Liver to qject its morbid matter, then on tiro stomach and
bowels to carry off thatmattor, thus accomplishing two
purposes effectually, without any of the painful feelings
experienced in the operations of most Cathartics. 'lt
strengthens the system at the same time that it purges it;
and when taken daily in moderate: doses, will strengthen
and bniid it up with unusual rapidity.
The Lrvxa is one of the[ principal regulators of the
human body; and when it performs its functions well,
the powers of the system are fully developed. The
stomach- is.almost entirely dependent on the healthy
action of tho Liver for tho| Qj proper performance of its
functions; when tho stom-| ach is at jfhult, the bowels
aro at fault,,and the whole,Q system Buffers In conse
quence of onq organ—the!'' Livbb—having ceased to do

counteract the many .de- rangoments to which it is

The Restorative of Prof. O. J. Wood for Restoring hair
perfectly and pm mancntl}, has never yet had a rival, vol
ume alter volume might be given from nil jwrts of the
world and from the most intelligent to prove that,it is a
perfect Restorative ; but read the circular and you cannot
ddubt; read also the following.
ZEJ-The Hair.—People hdvc for centuries been afflicted
with bald heads and the only remedy, heretofore known,
has been those abominable wigs. By a recent discovery of
Professor Wood these articles are being fast dispensed with,
but a great many pcrsbns still patronize them, because
they have been so often imposed Upon by Hair Tunics of;
different kinds. To all such persons we earnestly make
the request; that they-will try once again, for in Wood’s
Restorative there is no such thing as 'fill." We know of a
lady who was bald, who used tlie-artide a short time, and
her head is now coveted completely with the tiniest and'
most beautiful curls imaginable. We know of numerous
cases where hair was rapidly falling out, which It restored
in greater perfection than it ever had been before.
It is also without doubt one of the best articles for kce[e
ing the hair in good condition, making it soft and glosi-y,
removing dandruff, and hits proved' itself the greatest ene
my to.all the ills that hair is heir to.
It is the duty of every one to improve their personal ap
pearance though some may differ in regard to the ways of
doing if: but every one will admit that w beautiful head of
hair, cither in man or woman, is an object much tube de
sired. and thyre are no means that shodul be left untried to
obtain such a consideration.— Woman's' Advocate, Ptiila.
Coshocton, Ohio, Nov. 17,1856.
0. J. WOOD A.CO.—Gents: As I have been engaged in
selling yonr Hair Restorative the last .season for one of
your local agents (R. 51. Uackinson,) and haviibg cxpcrl
cuced the beneficial effects of It myself, I would Tike to ob
tain an agency fdrthe State of .Ohio or some State in the
West, should you wish MJlßHtke each an arrangement, ns 1
am convinced there is notM^ ! eqiM to it in Die Uptted Slates,
fen restoring the hair, I ; 3iav» ,heen engaged in .the Drug
business for several yenrgy’Md hare sold tariaqs prepara
tions for the hair,’ but have firandYwthlng that restores the
secretive organs or invigorate* the Scalp as well os yonrs,
being fully convinced that yonf res'toratiyb' is what yon
represent it to be, I would like to engage in the sale of il)
for lam satisfied it hiast sell! Yours truly.

PROF. 0. J.-.WOOD 4Co,—Oenfai: Haying realized the
good effects of yonr .Hair Restorative, I wish to state,, that
finding my hair growing thin, as well ,as gray, I was In
duced from what I read and heard, to try the,article pro
pared by yon, to promote its growth and change its color
as it was in youth, both of which it has effected complete
ly. In the operation I have used nearly three bottles.

Confession of Monster.
The “ down-enat” papers contain: the confes-j
sion of Marshal Potter, who, on tlie night of
Wednesday, April 6th, at Lee, Maine, murder
ed hie aged mother and two brothers!, and a boy,
his nephew, and then eet fire to ,the house.—
The villian is a graduate of the State Prison,
and has long been an object of general aversion
and distrust. His object in committing these
murders was to gratify, a slight quarrel with his
mother, eighty years old, who threatened to deny
him with further admission to the house, in con
sequence of bis bad conduct, and; also to get
possession of $2OO which his brothers had by
them, and $lOO which his mother had received
a few days previous; her pension as the widow
of a revolutionary soldier*. Of his [own accord,
the wretched man, Marshall Potter, made the
following confession;— '
“I am guilty. I came home about 10 o'clock
Wednesday night; my mother was irp; she told
me it was a fine time of night to tome home :
one of my brothers told me I bad been over to
Mr. Hanscom’s, and carried a bottle of liquor
with me; I told him 1 had not been there ;ho
told me I had; I told him that I did not want
any more stuff from him, or something to that
amount; he told me if I did not keep still I
should go out doors; I told him I shouldn’t go
out; I went out into the other part of the house
and got a shingle maul, (an instrument made
of hard wood, twelve inches long and six in
width and breadth, with a handle about a foot
long in the end) with which I took'the lives of
them all; 1 went in and struck Alexander with
the shingle maul; I hit him in tboiface and on
the bead and struck him a number of times.
“1 then struck Oliver several times on the
head and face, they neither of theta struggled
after I hit them. My mother came into the
room and got hold of me; I swung round and
struck her with the maul, and she fell;' she did not
struggle. The caudle was setting on the wood
box by the side of the stove ; I Upped it off the
box iute the box of shavings; the shavings took
fire, and 1 did try to pul the fire out; I then left
the house and wept out round it ; I staid out
round there till it got pretty well afire; then 1
went over to Mr. Hanscom’s, called him up and
told him that the house was burning up, and all
there was in it; he got np, and heand I went
over; when we got there the house: was pretty
much burned through.
“ I killed Albert (his nephaw, a boy ten years
j old); I killed them all; 1 think T didn’t stike
| Albert on the bend; I struck him on tho side
of the face with the maul; be didn’t struggle
theu ; I heard him make a.noise afterwards ; he
was lying on the bed, but I don’t know as he
was psleep : I don’t know how the shavings came
in the box; they were ihero before } mother was
up and sitting by the stove when I came in; my
two brothers were in bed ; we had some quar
reling before, but nothing but words.”
The examination of the mutilated and .char
red bodies confirms the account ot the manner
in which tbe murder was effected, even that of
the buy whose jaw and face is horribly crushed
The murdered is 43 years of age. "He allows no
particular sign of feeling, but seenjs rather in
different than otherwise.
Judicial Faeces.— A correspondent, who has
evidently kept bis eyes open and made use of
bis optics, sends us a communication concerning
the escape of "an alleged murderer In Philadel
phia. The remarks of our correspondent will
'fit some other lochlitios we know of. He thus
sketches the judicial farce sometimes enacted
under the name of a trial for murder:
“ For the fun of the thing, let us suppose the
alleged murderer caught. “ Vel;t votofit?”
Of coarse, he will have a hearing before a mag
istrate, bail business discussed, and awful hard
swearing, pro and con., generally. ‘ Prisoner is
committed to stand a trial. \ Dip arrives.— *
Quarter Sessions crowded. Counsel for defend
ant on band and eager for tbe fray. Jury cal
led. “Formed an opinion?’’ Test “Stand
aside.’’ Another and another—slime question'
—same answer; till, after a long time, twelve
intelligent; ,&0., are procured. When, all of a
sudden, the discovery is made that an impor
tant witness is absent. “Can’t; go on, your
Honor. Peter Jones is here—will swear that
John Snooks, who knows everything, and more
too, can’t be found; expect to prove by him in
sanity in the family of the prisoner fora thou
sand years; wjll swear that the prisoner is as
harmless as a kitten; was hit once, when a baby,
on' the shins, with a doogti-ntit, and been soft
headed ever since.” The trial is pul off; comes
on next six 'months; crazy dodge; no go ; con
victed ;\great shame; innocent ns a lamb; move
for a new trial; argument heard; refused; sen
tenced ; Governor pardons. And; 80 ends the
farce. Who wonld’nt “ take a dajf s shooting ?”
A Strange Advertisement. —TFe find in the
Zanesville Courier an advertisement of Solomon
Sturges, one of the. wealthy men of Ohio, in
which he sets forth his reasons for offering far
sale his vast landed property, pe advertises
the subject thus:—
“ 1 have some eight or ten fine improved forms
in Indiana, and one 0f670 acres; near Galena,
in Illinois, that I wish to sell. I believe no man
has a right to own more land than is necessary
for bis use, and that of his family;: God has no
doubt wisely ordained, that land\thitri» should
be cursed ; and I can truly say I am' ex
ceedingly ancons to Sell qll my lands, and get
rid of the curse. 1 will therefore sell at low
price*, and on easy terms of payment, any of my
real estate; and 1 have a great deal pnore than
I want, ought tp have,; or desire.”:

What an awful picture presents itself to the
vision of the workman as his name, that good
name, the name it may be of in honest man,'is
ordered to be written upon tho“ bliekiist!”
Bisses and groans await-him* andvisioM of
eternal infamy seems to glimmer before him,
as the persecuting chalk scrawls oat his hitherto
fair initials. His tearful.wife, too, trembling
in%er doubt between starvation and honor, bids
him go and yield to the committee and the
union, and hare their spotless names preserved
from such a' fearful list/ Ndw,- brother, nke
chanic, let me say a word or two, as we gp up
to the judgement hall. I have Joined In a
“strike," in days leng since past. We Struck
against bosses who woe exceedingly kind to us;
agains men. who sympathized with ha in cur
sickness, and smiled, upon us In our prosperity.
We, too, were perfectly satisfied with our env
ployers and our wages, and in faet, there was
but one man who complained of anything In the
whole establisment, and ho was Hie Uuittt man,
perhaps, that ever breathed, and strange is h
may seein, was as peevish as he was lazy. He
must have wondered at the generosity of his
employers, in keeping him about the shops; but
like all things earthly, his wonder had an end,
for he was discharged, and with no other alter*
native but to “ strike.”
He etruck for higher wages, and though des
piaed by all, he started a little stream which
burst erory barrier, till the fountain itself .was
exhausted. We all struck, we knew not why,,
hut we imagined we were in an age that demon*
ded a revolution. We soon disliked to meet ear
employers, and we as soon imagined that they
bated us, and only wished crush ne beneath
their terrible tyranny.. We farmed a union, and
displayed a magnificent “ black list."' We para
ded the streets to very martial musio; we drank,
and smoked, and flourished, and our employers
had to yield, yes, we “ brot’em’’ to terms, and
they were mighty glad to get us baek. Glori
ous day ! Magnificent victory!! What a grand
success we mechanics hud achieved!!! And yet
strange to tell, in the short space of seven
months, there were but sixteen of the “ strikers”
left in that town, and they of the sixteen all,
with but one exception, had been emblosoned
on the terrifiic “ black list.” Let me tell you,
my friend, no man nor no set of men cenld
frighten these strikers, now with a “ black lied.”
Nay, though they dared to write their names
upon the blackest walls of the infernal pit,- and
send from thence the most hissing groanspf
damned spirits, they would die before they Wotdd
yield their liberty and strike for what they did
not desire
; If your employers are regardless of your riffSU,
strike ofl’ their bonds and starve before yen will
yield. But for humaity’a sake, do npt say “ t
was perfectly satisfied, and would like to be at
work again, bat the rest struck, and I was
afraid to stand out”
If you have any rights to vindicate, let me
urge it upon yen to mantain them. ’ 1 '
