Da. Kstiek: —My wife baa been afflicted with a bad
sough and difficulty or breathing for five or six years,
which tor sev-ral years back bad gradually increased in
viuleuse. Th. complaint baa been hereditary. and she bad
b«u treated by several physicians without any relief. In
ShUtfsto of hoc case I procured some of your Pectoral
Coast) Syrup. I bought the first time a fifty copt bottle,
which relieved her very much; I then called and got a
dollar.bottle, which cured her entirely, and sba bos mu
no trace of the former disease, except weakness. I would
also state that 1 used the medicine myself to a cold and
•ungb. The medicine cured me by.taking one dose. I re
press my entire satisfaction with the medicine, and you
art at liberty to publish this If you desire to do so.

Da. .KsTStn; —Although not an advocate of Patent Medh

your Pectoral Syrup. As a medicine if is well worthy the
attention of any person who may in any manner ba aifec
tad with coughs, colds and hoorsanuss of any kind, and for
fht peculiar qualifications for removing alt that disagreea
ble sensation attending a cold.
I have been more or less, in my life affected with the
severest Colds of hoarseness. At times my throat would
besomo so closed os to prevent my speaking above a whis
per. and by taking a few doses of tha above Syrup it would
relieve me entirely.
In roc-'inmendiug this medicine. I must unhesitatingly
•ay that It is tha bast medicine I ever found, purporting to
•ure the above ; nor should any family be. without this
ksaady tor diseases so prevalent.

Worthy of ainy Confidence
Many, since tE'e great .discovery- of Prof. Woe d, have at
tempted not only to imitate his restorative, trill. profess to
have discovered something that would produce r -suits iden
tical; but they have all come and gone, being c; rried away
by the wonderful results or Prof. Wood’s pntpa -atioo, and
have been forced to leate the field to Its resistless sway,—
Read the following;—
B.vtn, Me.. April If th, 1859.
Prof. 0. •!. Wood A Co.: Gents: —The letter I wrote you
in 18S6 concerning your valuable Hair Kesto -alive, and
which you have published in this, vicinity and elsewhere,
has given rise to numerous inquiries touching the tacts in
the case. The enquiries are, first, is it a fact <}f my liabi-,
tutlon and name, as stated in the conimunicath.ii; second,
is it true of all therein-contained; third, does my hair still
continue to be in good order and of natural color? Xo all
I con and. do answer invariably yes. My hair is even'bet
ter than in any stage of my life for 40 years pist, more
soft, thrifty and better colored; the same is true of my
whiskers, and the only cause why it is not generally true,
is that the substance is washed oil by frequent ablution of
the face, vyhen if'care were used by "wiping the face in close
connection with the whiskers; the same result will follow
as the hair. I,have been iti the receipt of a great number
of letters from alt parts of New England, askirig me if my
hair still continues to be good: as there is so much fraud
in the manufacture and safe of various compounds us well
os this, it lias, no doubt, been basely imitated and been used
not only without any good effect, but to absolute injury.—
X have not tisedany of your Restorative of any account for
some months, and yet my hair is as good ns ever„and hun
dreds have examined it with surprise, as I am now Cl years
old itntl not a gray hair In. my-head or on n;y face;and to
prove this fiict, I send you a lock of my hair taken off the
past week. I received your favor of\ two quart bottles last
summer, for which 7 am very grateful. I gave it to my
friends and thereby induced them to try it, many were skep
tical until after trial, and then purchased and used It with
.universal success. 1 will ask as a favor, that you send
mo a test I)}' which I can discover fraud ia the Restorative,
sold by rpauy, I fear, .without authority from you. A pure
article Will insure success, and I believe where good effects
do not follow, the failure is caused by the impure article,
which curses the inventor of the good. 1 detun it my-duly
as heretofore, to keep you apprised of the continued effect
on my hair, us X assure all who enquire of me of my un
shaken opinion of its valuable results. 1 remain, dear sir,
yours, A. C. RAYMOND.
Aarons Run. Ky.,’ Nov. 30. 1858.
Pool'. 0. J. Wood : Dear Sir.—l would certainly bo doing
yon a great injifstice not to make know n to.the world, the
wonderful, as well as unexpected result I have exjwrienced
from using one bottle of your Hair Restorative. Alter using
every kind of Restoratives extant, but without success, add
finding my bead nearly destitute of hair, T was Dually in
duced to try a bottle of your Hair Restorative. Now, can
dor and justice compel me to announce to whoever may
read this, that 1 now possess a new and beautiful growth
of hair, which I pronounce richer and handsomer than the
original was. I W ill therefore take occasion to recommend
this invaluable remedy to all who may feel the necessity
of It. Resp’y you a. Rev. S. ALLEN BROCK.
1 P. S.—This testimonial of my approbation for jour val
uable medicine hts you are aware of) is unsolicited , but if
yotr think it Wc>rthy a place among the rest, insert if you
wish; if not destroy and say jiutliing. ■
Yours, Ac.,
The Restorative is put up in bottles of three sizes, viz:
large, medium and small; the small holds a pint and
retails for one dollar per bottle ; the mediums hold nt least
twenty per cent more in proportion than the small, retails
for two dollars per bottle: the large bolds a quart, 40 per
cent, moro in proportion and retails for $3 a bottle. 0 J

This work contains 304 pages, anil upwards erf 500 Rules
and Examples, entirely and thoroughly practical, such aa
arise every day in tho common pursuits of Biislucbs. It
has already passed through a number of editions ip rapid
succession, and is pronounced by all classes of business
men to bo thcihaudicst book of reference, pertaining to'cal
culations, thidi has over been published.
Every exmnple in tho book Is worked out In full and sta
ted in a plain manner, so that when a parallel case arises,
those referring, to the work will find no difficulty in solving
it; in n word, tho goucral arrangement of theCAIX.'ULA
TOIt Is simple, that any one who knows how to add, sub
tract, multiply and divide, can easily solve any ordinary >
example that arises in business, or arrive at the true result
of any estimate required.
The chief aim of tho author has been to cschcw theory
and philosophy in figures, aiming only at facts aud simpli
city, believing that business men care little about spending
liriie in discussing the philosophy of rules, or the science of
figarbs, deeming it sufficient for tlieir purpose to bo able at
a -mdnicnt, by reference, to arrive at tbe true result. The
CALCULATOR differs in’this respect from all other Arith
metics of tl»e day and kindred works—it is tv key to prac

A rosebud blossomed in my bower,
A bird sang in my garden;
The rosebud was its fairest flower,
■The bird its gentlest warden.
Andu child beside the linden tree
Sung “Think no more of sorrow;
But let u» smile and sing to-day,
For wo must weep to-morrow.”
1 asked the bird, “ Oh didst thou hear
The song-lhat she would sing thee!
And can it be that thou shonl-ist fear,
What the next morn may bring thee !”
He answered vritb triumphant strain,
Saying,"! know not,sorrow;
But 1 must sing my Lest to-day,
For I may die to-morrow!”
I asked the rose, “ Oh, tell m», sweet,
In thy first beauty’s dawning,
Thou canst not fear, from this I'tetreat,
The coining of the morning I”
She’flung her fragrant leaves apart,
The lovelier for her sorrow.
Saying, “Vet I must bloom to-day,
For I may droop to-morrow.”
I said, “ The bloom upon my cheek
I s fleeting ns the roses;
My voicu no mute shall sing nor speak,
/When dust In dost reposes;
And from these soulless monitors
One lessen I may borrow—
That we should smile and slug to-day,
For we may weep to-morrow.”

Esther McDowell—A Singular Story.
J. F. Meginnis in Lis history of the
North Branchy Valley relates the following
history of a successful imposition practiced
upon, the people of Jersey Sho|e, in<J.§o3.
About the year. 1808, a remarkabl2--cir
(jumstapree transpired at tWiippcr%td' of
thfi-borough pf Jersey Shore, well remam
berefj.hy all the old people living,at that
fim'o. Pino r tree|* in Considerable num
bers/Were the spot; 1
now speak.
MaTjtin Beese, had bpilt
the public road fhp. cabal, pjn"tho
farm now owned •
and rpade some improvements. Rising
very early one frosty morning ;lh Octoberj.'
he\was surprised to find a
■in .a state of nudity, with her hands tied
behind her back, and a gag over : her;
month,- standing in front -of.Jus cabin,
against a tree.: He relieved hsr-Il£pnx her
uncomfortable position as soon
and tendered her the his |
humble cabin She appeared to be com- i
plctely chilled through with cold, and !
could scarcely speak for some time. - On j
recovering sufficient' strength she related
that ho bed been traveling on horseback
from her father’s bouse ih, Montreal,, to
visit an uncle that resided 4 in Kentucky,,
in charge of a young man named Benja
min Connctt who was sent, expressly to
attend her. Bi|t haying a large ainpunt
of gold in her (possession, an evil spirit
prompted him to rob her; and in a lonely
spot near P|ne Crpck, he presented a pis-1
lobto her breast, compelling her to dis-:
mount and deliver up whatmoney she pos
sessed ; when h.e immediately stripped her,.
tied her in this shameful condition, to
starve with hunger or be devoured by wild
beasts. She had remained in that condi
tion nearly all night; when after the'most
despetale struggles, she had released her
self and made her way to the cabin. Af
ter being refreshed, she willingly went
with the family -to the' spot, and pointed
’ out the place where she had been tied, and
the path- she had beaten round the tree
trying to • free herself.
;Thero. was'something artless ip her ap
pearaneej and her modest demeanor.: and
delicate frame, loft ho doubt in the minds
! of those who saw her, that her statements
i were true, and that she had been foully
dealt' ’lyithv . {She appeared . tp ; be over
whelmed wiib . at ihe; thought of
her situation among strapgerp. Stc gave
her name as Esther McDowell. - "
„ . Key. Mr. (Jrier, father of Judge Grier
B of the Supreme Court, resided,
- aud took her into his family, and kindly
■*jj provided for her wants. A greatdealof
sympathy iras excited.’ in hjet behalf, ans
the. neighbors vied with each o&her in
'■making her presents of clothing. Several
gentlemen, now living, presented her with
valuable silk dresses, and other articles,
which she accepted, and- kindly thanked
them for their liberality. £ r ,
Mean while the news spread throughout
the country, and the public indignation
was.highly excited against the villain Con
nett. Handbills, offering a reward fo.r hia
apprehension, were put in ■ circulation,
and the chivalry of the West. Branch
started in all directions, to look for the
scoundrel. He had twenty T four hours
start, however, and being well mounted,
eluded all observations and cftectcd his
11. C, DJ3RN,
The artless girl remained ip, the neigh
borhood, caressed and entertained Ly the
sympathizing people, who could upt do
enough to alleviate her wants. Hor man
ners were so simple, her actions so lady
like and refihed, and her description of the
thief so minute, that no doubt was left of
her being badly treated. Letters in ,the
meantime were dispatched to her father at
Montreal, but weeks elapsed and no answer
caipe. Still the public confidence in her
was unshaken.
The intelligence having spread far and
near, strangers flocked in great numbers
to see her, and load her "with presents. —
Being at the hotel kept by Duffies, at Lar
ry’s Creek, a gentleman nts»ed Hutchison’,
from Milton, called to sec her. She eyed
him closely, and seemed to keep, shy of
him, •which attracted his attention, and he
thought he detected something familiar in
her countenance. He requested, to have
sornp private conversation with her which
sfio positively refused, when he exclaimed,
calling her by name— ‘ I believe you are
the identical voung man that once worked
* C
for me in Milton as a journeyman tailor !’
This was. a poser, and she became greatly
excited; which aroused a suspicion
the people that she might be an iriipostor.
And such she untimately proved to be.—-
The pretty Esther McDowell had deceived
and humbugged them in a shameful man
ner, and never was robbed as she repre
sented. 1 ■
clothinghad also
been found near the spot where lihc" was
found, secreted in a hollow log, which went
to confirm the suspicion;, At length she
confessed that such was the fact —that she
had been playing-the impostor; beingof
a romantic turn of mind, shehad actually
passed herself off as a young man,, and
worked as a journeyman tailor. ,
It was now remeraberea that a young
man, answering her description, had cros
sed th 6 White Deer Mountains into Jsip
penoso Valley, and staid over night with
the family of a farmer. If bo evening of
that day she (he) camp to the ’house of
