"It is r try seldom that we make any allusion to Patent
Medicines, either approving or otherwise l (.fortunately
for tbe country, and for honest and conscientious inven

Hooded w itb rjuai k pre|>aratioiis, that are made alone for
profit and are tit not even for the dogs. In this stale of
things it is hard to tell w Inch are, and which are not worth
having It a person gets an iudifferent medicine the first
time be purchases, he i- very apt to condemn the whole
of them and buy no more, and inventors must only blame
those of their number, (who ignorantly combine plain
medicines together for the purpose ofmaking money.) for
the ill success K Inch attend* the efforts of the deserv iris "
" We believe Dr C M. Jackson's 'Hoofland's German
Billets' to be a most excellent medicine, and one that
should be highly popular in these days of Temperance ;
for they are altogether I'tpetable in their composition,
without one drop of .lltuhohe Spirits in them. Tins ined

" r>r Hoojiantt's fierman Bittern - Here is a prepara

Unanimous in recommending, and the reason is obvious.
It is made nfti r a prescription furnished by one of the
most celebrated physicians of modern times—the late
llr t hristophrr Wilhelm Hooffand, professor to the I'ni
verslty of Jena, private physician to the king of Prussia,
and one of the greatest medical writers Germany has ever
produced. He was emphatically thediemynf isnivs,
and therefore a medicine of which he was ihe inventor
andendorsor may be confidently relied on. He specially
recommended it in l.iver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Debility,
Vertigo, Aridity of the Stomach, Constipation, and all
complaints arising froin a disordered condition of the
stomach, the Inn and the intestines Nine Philadelphia
papers express their conviction of its excellency, and sev
eral of the editors speak of its effects from their own indi
vidual experience I'nder these circumstances, \vc feel
warranted, not only in calling the attention of our readers
to the present proprietor's (Dr C M Jackson's) prepara
tion, but in recommending the article to all afflicted "

i "tat arc noised about for a brief period andjthen forgotten
i after it has done its guilty tare of mischief,but of a med
icine long established, universally prised, and who h lias
I met the hearty approval of the faculty itself."
Evidence upon evidence has been received
(like the foregoing) from all sections of ibe

testimony in its favor, is, that there is more ot
it used in the practice of the regular Physi
cians el Philadelphia than all other nostrums
: combined, a fact that can easily he established,
nnd fully proving that a scientific preparation
will meet with their quiet approval when pre

That this medicine will cure Liver Complaint

as directed. Ii acts specifically upon the stoin

eaten out—the use of one arm aeslroytd —an Ulcer, as large
as a man's hand, had nearly eaten through his side—ani

We have been so often deceived by such medicines not
