A certain Cure for Ague, Fever,
and Dyspepsia,
TN onr summer and fall months many sections of our
1 country are prostrated by BILLIOtJS FEVER and
AGt E and FEVER. —It has been our particular study to
! find out some remedy to stop this dreadful scourge, and
think, in this TONIC we have effected this great object.
' It is atso we think the very best remedy in Dyspepsia,
' and if our directions are followed, will not fail to effect
a cure.
In a letter dated, May 23d, I*l9,our Agent, Mr. E.lias
I Raub, of VVrightsviile, York couuty, Pa ,says:—l have
' never known any remedy for Fiver and Jigut equal to
I your invaluable National Tonic. It has given universal
satisfaction, and has cured cases of Ague of years stand-
j ing, and after the failure of all other medicines made use
j of. Mr. Henry Beverson, of the same place, says in his
, certificate, dated 22d March, 1849, 1 1 applied to a number
of Physician*, and also used a variety of the most popu
i lar Ague Mixtures at different times, but all without the
j lesired effect; no permanent cure having been afforded
1 was at length induced, at the recommendation of your
worthy Agent at this place, to try a bottle of your Na
| lions! Tonic, and to my great satisfaction,before I had
used half of it, I felt completely cured, though I contin
j ued the use of it till 1 had taken two bottles.' In a Joint
: certificate from Messrs. Miles Iloke, William Blackson,
and James D. Brown, of the same place, they say—'Ha v
! ing tried nearly all the remedies within our reach with
' out success, we at last purchased some of your A'atiunul
Tonic, which has completely cured us. We, therefore,
; cheerfully recommend it to the notice of all persons af
■ flirted with that terrible disease as the best remedy Jet
; discovered.'

"C.J B Williams, M D , F. R A., Professor of Medi

ciau to the Hospital for consumption, ice., says : I have
prescribed the Oil in above four hundred cases of tubercu
lous disease of the Lungs, in different stages, which have
been under my care the last two years and a half. In
the large number of cases, 206 out of 231, its use was fol
lowed by marked and unequivocal improvement, varying
in degree in different cases, froin a temporary retarda
tion of the progress of the disease and a mitigation of dis
tr stung symptoms, up to a more or less complete restor
ation lo apparent health.
" The eff'-ct of the Cod Liver Oil in most of these cases
was very remarkable. Even in a few days the cough
was mitigated, the expectoration diminished In quantity
and opacity, the night sweats ceased, the pulse became
• lower, and of better volume, and the appetite, flesh and
strength were gradually improved.
"In conclusion, I repeat that the pure fresh oil from
the Liver of the Cod is more beneficial in the treatment
of Pulmonary Consumption than any agent, medicinal,
dietetic or regimenal, that has yet been employed."
As tee hate made arrangements toproeure the Cod l.trer
Oil, fresh from head quarters, it tan nov be had chemically
pure by the single bottle, or in bone of one dozen each.
its wonderful efficacy has induced numerous spurious
imitations As its success depends entirely on its purity,
too much care cannot be used in procuring it genuine.

sii;>ernr virtues of this medicine has been tested, haafal
i len under our observation. During the last summer, a
son of Mn. ABRAHAM GKABILL, of this county, was very
\ seriously alflictcd with Liver Complaint, and after trying
' in vain various remedies, he purchased a bottle of the
1 Bitters, ami after using it, was so much relieved of bis
| distressing malady, that he procured another bottle, and
is restored entirely to health."
FBOM "THE WELDON HERALD," published at VVeldon,
N. C., January 24,1850, which said—
" It is very seldom that we make any allusion to Patent
Medicines,eitherapprovingcrolherwise. Unfortunately '
for the country, and for honest and conscientious inven- !
tors and venders of these medicines, the land u becoming
flooded with quack preparations, that are made alone for !
profit and are fit not even for the dogs. In this slate of ,
tiling* it is hard to tell n hich are, and which are not worth
having, if a person gets an indifferent medicine the first
time lie purchases, he is very apt to condemn the whole j
of Un-ni and buy no more, and inventors must only blame
those of their number, (who lgnorantly combine plain !
medicine* together for llie purpose of making money.) for
tile ill success w inch attends the efforts of the deserving." i
'• We believe l)r. C. M. Jackson's ' fiooflaiid's German ;
Bitters' to be a most excellent medicine, and one that :
should be highly popular in these days of Temperance; :
for they ar>- altogether Vegetable in their composition,
without one drop of .'SUahohc Spirits in them. This med
icine r- innocent, but strengtheningin its effects, and rich
ly deserving of an unbounded popularity, which, when it
becomes know n, it w ill, no u nibt, fully enjoy."

" Dr. Ilortfi :nd's fterman Bitters —Here Is a prepara
tion which ttie leading presses in the Union appear to be ;
unanimous in recommending, and the reason is obvious. !
It is made after a prescription furnished by one of the i
most celebrated physicians of modern times—the late I
fir. Christopher \\ ilheini Ho,.fluid, professor to the Uni- !
versity of Jena, private plix sician to the king of Prussia, ;
and one of the greatest medical writers Germany has ever ;
produced, lie was emphatically the enemy of humbug, i
and therefore a medicine of which he was the inventor
and endorsor may bo confidently relied on. He specially i
recommended it in Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Debility, j
\ ertigo, Acid.tv of the ftoniach. Constipation, and all |
complaints arising from a disordered condition of the i
stomach, the liver and the intestines. Nine Philadelphia
papers express their conviction of its excellency, and sev
eral of trie editors speak of its effects from their own indi
vidual experience. Under these circumstances, we feel
warranted, not only in calling the attention of our readers
to the present proprietor's (Dr C. M Jackson's) prepara- j
lion, but in recommending the article to all afflicted."
family newspaper published in the Pnited States The
editor says of
lh. HonflantTs German Hitters:
" It is seldom that we recommend what are termed Pat- i
erit Medicines to the confidence and patronage of our
readers; and, therefore, when we recommend Dr. Hoof- i
land's German Bitters, we wish it to be distinctly under
stood that we are not speakingoftbe nostrums of the day, j
thai are noised about for a brief period ancfthcn forgotten
after it has done its guilty race of mischief, but of a med
icine long established, universally prized, and which has
met the hearty approval of the faculty itself."
Evidence upon evidence has been received
(like the foregoing) from all sections of the
Union, the la?T three years, and the strongest
testimony in ils favor, is, that there is more ot
it used in the practice of the regular Pliysi- j
Cians of Philadelphia than all other nostrums
combined, a fact that can easily be established,
and fully proving that a scientific preparation
will meet with their quiet approval when pre
sented even in this form.
That this medicine will cure I,iver Complaint
and Dyspepsia, no one can doubt after using it
as directed. It acts specifically upon the stom
