Allegheny and Monongahela rivers to
afford a full supply of pure water for the
use of - the city for the next twenty-fire
years. That in such examination regard
be bad to the water capacity of ttwo
rivers, the system for supply and to
serve, with the estimated cost. That the
said Committee also have the waters of
the two rivers thoroughly analyzed by
competent chemists, and that they re
port the result of the 'whole at as early
a day as practicable.

Female Diseases.
At the present day it is extremely rare
to find a female who is entirely free from
some one or the other of the diseases
peculiar to her sex. Go where you will,
on the mountain top or in the valley, in
the hamlet or in the city, among the rich
or the lowly, there will be found very
few females who are not laboring under
physical affliction peculiar to woman
The cause of this we will not undertake
to explain here. The numerous applica
tions made to us for relief during our
twenty years' ractice, has long since in
duced us to make especial study and in
vestigation of these diseases, and their
best method of cure. They are maladies
of a peculiar character, and as a general
thing they requires method of treatment
entirely utilise that adopted for those'
common to both ?glass, In fact, the very
frequency and extent of female diseases
in our midst. 10 good evidence hat

We were long' since convinced that
lodal remedies and external appliances,
bandages. &c., were mere pa ll iatives for
the time, and of 7no permanent value
whatever, but , &times injurious; and
that an efficient course of medication was
- the only Wipe of care.

afflicted with any disease peculiar to the
sex, whether Item a slight cold, followed
by a derangemeht and irregularity of the
general system. which many times pro-,
duces cough, expectoration, tightness of
chest, difficult breathing, palpitation.
&c., with all the symptoms of "going in
to ..a decline," or from any of the very
many other causes which produce such
terrible suffering among women, as to
make life a burden to them, we would say
that our remedies are selected and pre
pared with a special view towards these
ends, and will, give relief in all these
kinds of cases, without needless expos
wearing indent. ate examinations, or the
of disagreeable instruments br
cumbrous appliances.
• We have cured hundreds—Yes, thous
ands—of cases by "medical treatment
alone, hundreds of whom we have never
seen, but who only obtained their med
icines after having sent to us their cases
for examination.
Oar remedies in these diseases,are
mild but effectual, and are such as we
have found out to act in conformity with
the laws of nature. in regulating health;
and from the success which has almost
invariably crowned our efforts in these
cases, we can promise, and do promise, a
speedy cure in every case where a real,.
onable hope can be entertained. •

OPERA Housr..—The regular season
at the Opera souse opened last evening,
on which occasion Guy Mannering was
presented with Miss Emma Waller i n
the role •of Meg Meres. The ani
dance was a large and apprectstive_one ,
and the new company came fully up to
the highest expectation. Mr. Chester,
the leading man, in the role of Dandle
Dininont, was a success. and the same
might be said of each individual member
of the company. Miss Georgie Dickson
as Julia Manner:llg, and Mrs. S. K. Ches
ter as Lnoy Bertram, deserve especial
notice. Miss Dickson made a decided
hit, and received a full share of tne ap
plause. Her singing is superior to any
thing we have had in her line of bust
ness, and she is a most charming actress.
Mrs. Chester is a floe reader and dresses
with excellent taste. Tonight, "Eliza
beth, Queen of England" will be pre
sented with Emma Wailer in the title,
role. -
