Digestion is Chiefly performed in the j
stomach by the aid of a fluid which freely j
exudes from tho inner coat of that organ, j
when in a state ol health, called the Gastric ,
Juice. This fluid is the Great solvent of the
Food, the Purifying, Preserving, and Stimula- |
ting Agent of the stomach and iutonstiues. |
Without it there will bo no digestion,—no
conversion of food into blood, and no nu- j
trition of the body; but rather a foul, torpid. I
painful, and destructive conJition of the j
whole digestive apparatus. A weak, half I
dead, or injured stomach produces no good j
Gastric Juice, and hence the disease, dis- .
Ires sand debility which ensue.
PEPSIN AND RENNET.—Pepsin is tlio chief*
element, or great Digesting Principle of the i
Gastric Juice. It is found in great nbnn- !
dance in tho solid parts of the human stom- j
ach after de Uh, and sometimes causes the |
stomach to digest itself, or eat i'self up. It i
is also found in the stomach of animals, as]
the ox, call', &c. ft is the material used by .
farmers in makirg cheese, called Rennet,
the effect of which has long been tho spe- j
eta! wonder of the dairy. The curdliug of!
milk is the first process of digestion. Ren- i
net possesses astonishi' g power. The stom- |
acli of a calf will curdle nearly one thou
sand times its own weight of milk. Baron
I.iobig states that, 'One part of Pepsin dis
solved in sixty thousand parts of water, will
digest moat and other food." Diseased
stomachs produce 110 good Gastric Juice
Rennet or Pepsin. To show that this want
may be perfectly supplied, we quote the
SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE !
BARON LIEBIG, in Lis celebrated work on
Animal Chemistry, says: "An Artificial Di- I
geslive Fluid analagous to the Gasiric Juice,
may be readily prepared from the nucous
membrane of the stomach of the Call, in
which various articles of food, as meat and
eggs* will be softened, changed, and diges
ted, just in the same manner as they would
be in the human stomach."
Dr. Pereira, in his famous treatise on
"Food and Diet," published by Fowlers &
Wells, New York, page 35. states the same
great fact, and describes tho motlied of prep
aration. There are few higher authorities
than Dr. Pereira.
Dr Cotnbe, in 4 liis valuable writings on
the "Physiology of Digestion," observes
that "a diminution of the due quantity of
the Gastric Juice is a prominent and all pre
vailing cause of Dyspepsia j" and ho states
that "a distinguished professor of medicine
in London, who was severely afflicted with
this complaint, finding every thing else to
fail, had recourse to the Gastric Juice, ob
tained from the stomach of living animals,
which proved completely successful."
Dr. Graham, author ot the famous works
on "Vegetable Diet," says : "it is a remar
kable fact in physiology, that the stomachs
of animals, macerated in water, imparl to
the fluid the properly of dissolving various
articles of food, and of effecting a kind of
artificial digestion of them in no wise dif
ferent from the natural digestive process."
Dr. Simon's great work, tho "Chemistry
of Man," (Lea & Blam-hard, Phila.. 1846,
pp. 321-2): "The discovery of PEPSIN
fo,ms a now era in the chemical history of j
Di gestion. From recent experiments we '
know that food is dissolved as rapidly in an
artificial digestive fluid, prepared from Pep
siq, as it is in the natural Gastric Juice it
Professor Dnnglison of the Jefferson Col
lege, Philadelphia, in his great work on Hu
man Physiology, devotes more than fifty
pages to an examination of this subject.
His experiments with Dr Beaumont, on the
Gastric Juice, obtained from the living hu
man stomach and from animals are well i
known. "In all cases," ho says, "digestion
occurred as perfectly in the artificial as the

Dr. J. -V. Kceler — I received yournote this
morning asking for information as to the dis
tribution I made ol the package of cordial
you put into my possession while in com
mand of the U. States transport during tho
Mexican war According to your direction a
part was distributed in Vera Cruz, tho other
1 kept for the uso of tny seamen and others
on board, beliving I should have use for it,
as I hud on board fruquentlj from ouo to
three hundred persons, und that many when
leaving Mexico would be on the sick list.—
Such was the fact, for Dysenfery and Diarr
hoea extensively prevailed ; I used the cor
dial freely, and in not a single instance do I
recollect of its having failed to cure. M
own crew would often bo attacked with Di
arrhma, Dysenlerry, &e, peculiar to nearly
all after getting on shore and eating fruit and
vegetables ; in all such cases the cordial did
not fail to cure speedily
When in New Orleans, a fiiend informed

man Esq, who was sick with tho Dysentery,
and despaired of by his doctor I mention
ed having a bottle or so of your cordial I
I sent it to him, and in a few days I had the
pleasure of seeing him well, 1 can give you

of your cordial if necessary. I have given
it to one ship master of this port, in partku

think it is the safest and best medicine that I

We are as little disposed as most persons
to encourage appeals to law or medicine, but
with all the legerdemain of the first, and the
! ignorance and ciuakery of the last, appeal-,
must occasionally be made to both. Th
excessive heat aud tho accompauing pro
ductions of the season are already producing
DiarrhtEa, Dysentery and liolera Infantum,
complaints which if not promptly relieved
produce great debility and frequdht death,
From a knowledge of its beneficial effects,
we refer to Dr. Keeler's Cordial and Crrmin
ative," advertised in this paper. Dr. Keeler
is a physician of intelligence, skill, and large
practice, and if the remedies and commen
dations of medical authority aro to be de
