DEVOTED to Literature, the Arts, Sciences,

number was issued in January last.
A Monthly Journal principally literary and
miscellaneous, embellished with beautiful
nnd meritorious engravings, designed to fur
nish the heads of families, as well as the
youth of both sexes, with a variety of en
tertaining and instructive information, which
will not merely possess the negative quality
of not deing injurious, butjn which the pos
itive ore of being really useful will alone
be found; giving a healthy tone of feeling
to their minds, and becoming instrumental,
it is hoped, in rendering them more happy
in themselves and in their families—more
useful in the various relations of life which
they sustain—belter members of society at
large, and preparing them for a stale where
nil is absolute perfection. One particular
feature of this New Monthly publication
will be an entire freedom from all sectarian
spirit, and a careful avoidance of political
and controversial subjects in its pages—an
upholder of /ruth and virtues—with no
doubtful morality marring its pages—suita
ble for ail, and proper to be read at all times.
All the important movements and events
of the times will receive attention, and the
news of the month carefully gleaned and

A Great Dyspepsia curer, Prepared from
RENNET, or the fourth Stomach of the Ox,
after directions of Baron Liebig, the great
Physiological Chemist, by J. S. Houghton,
M. D., No. 11, North Eighth Street, Phila
delphia, Pa.
This is a truly wpnderful remedy for Indi
gestion, Dyspepsia, Jaudice, Liver Com
plaint, Constipation, and Debility. Curing
after Nature's own method, by Nature's own
agent, the Gastric Juice.
tr Half a spoonlul of this Fluid, infused
in water, will digest or dissolve, Five Pounds
of Roast Beef in about two hours, out of the
Digestion is Chiefly performed in the
stomach by the aid of a fluid which freely
exudes from the inner coat of that organ,
when in a state ol health, called tho Gastric
Juice. This fluid is the Great solvent of the
Food, the Purifying, Preserving, and Stimula
ting Agent of the stomach and intenstines.
Without it thero will be no digestion,—no
conversion of food into blood, and no nu
trition of the body; but rather a foul, torpid,
painful, and destructive condition of the
whole digestive apparatus. A weak, half
dead, or injured stomach produces no good
Gastric Juice, nnd hence the disease, dis
tress and debility which ensue.
I'ErsiN AND RENNET. —Pepsin is the chief
element, or great Digesting Principle of the
Gastric Juice. It is found in great abun
dance in the solid parts of the human stom
ach after dejtli, and sometimes causes the
stomach to digest itself, or cat i'self up. It
is also found in the stomach of animals, as
the ox, calf, &c. It is the material used by
farmers in makirg cheese, called Rennet,
the effect of which has long been the spe
cial wonder of the dairy. The curdliug of
milk is the first process of digestion. Ren
net possesses astonislii-g power. The stom
ach of a calf will curdle nearly one thou
sand times its own weight of milk. Baron
Liebig states that, 'One part of Pepsin dis
solved in sixty thousand parts of water, will
digest meat and other food." Diseased
stomachs produce no good Gastric Juice
Rennet or Pepsin. To show that this want
may be perfectly supplied, we quote the
BARON LIEBIG, in celebrated work on
Animal Chemistry, says : "An Artificial Di
gestive Fluid analngous to the Gastric Juice,
may be readily prepared from the nucous
membrane of the stomach of the Call, in
which various nrticlos of food, as meat and
eggsH 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 arid Diet," published by Fowlers &
Wells, New Y'ork, page 35. slates the same
great fact, and describes the method of prep
aration. There are few higher authorities
than Dr. Pereira.
Dr Combe, in his 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;" and he 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 successlul."
Dr. Graham, author of the famous works
on "Vegetable Diet," says : "it is a remar
kable fact in physiology, that the stomachs
of animals, macerated in water, impart to
the fluid the property 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."

of Man," (Lea & Blanchard, Phila.. 1846,
pp. 321-2): "The discovery of PEPSIN

Professor Dunglison 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

known. "In all cases," he says, "digestion

The people arc beginning to understand, too
that the various Syrups of Sartaparilla are little
belter than molasses, and that it ie madness to
throw away money on articles which, under the

ena have been swallowed. One bottle of Dr.
Cullen's Panacea seldom fails to produce con

In fact, tho twelve ounce bottles of Di. Cul

more active and powerful, and which effect in

Their power over Ihe above diseases is j
not excelled, if equalled, by any odier rep
aration in the United Slates, as the cures
attest, in many cases after skilful physicians
had failed.
These Bitters are worthy tho attention of
invalids. Possessing great virtues in the |
rectification of diseases of the Liver afid Its- j
ser glands, exercising the most searching!
powers in weakness and nflectionsof the di- |
gestive organs, they are, withal, safe, cer-1
tain and pleasant.
Read and be Convinced.
The Hon. Charles D. Ilineline, Editor of j
the "Camden Democrat,"lhe best paper in j
I West Jersey, says, July 21: —
have seen many flattering notices of this [
medicine, and tho source from which they
Came, induced us to make inquiry respect
ing its merits. From inquiry we were per
suaderl to use it, and must say we found
it specific in its action upon diseases of the
liver and digestive organs, and the powerful
influence it exerts upon nervous prostration I
is really surprising. It calms and stregthens |
the nerves, bringing them into a state ol re ,
pose, making sleep relreshing.
[From the "Boston Bee."]
The editor said, Dec. 22d—:
'•Dr. Hoofland's Celebrated German Bitters
for tho cure of Liver Complaint, Jaundice, |
Dyspeysia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, is J
deservedlv one of the most popular rnedi- I
cines of the day. These Bitters have been
used by thousands, and a friend at our elbow I
says he has himself received an effectual |
and permanent cure of Liver Complaint I
from the use of this remedy. We are con- I
vincetl that, in the use of these Bitters, the
patient constantly gains strength and vigor—
a fact worthy of great consideration. They
are pleasant in taste and smell, and can be
used by persons with the most delicate stom
achs with safely, under any Circumstances.
We are speaking from experience and to the
afflicted we advise their use."
Judge M. M. Noah, n gentleman with
great scientific and and litterary attainments,
said in his " New York Weekly Messenger," i
January 6, ISSO.
"Dr Hoofland's German Bitters. —Here is [
a preparation which the leading presses in j
the Union appear to be unanimous in re-j
reason is obvious. It i
is made after-'a ' jfre scripticm furnished by
one o: the inrSt celebrated physicians of 1
modern times, the lato Dr Christopher Wil- j
helm Hoofland.TVofossor to the University |
of Jena, Private Musician to the King of i
Prussia, and one of the greatest medical wri
ters Germany has ever produced. He was
emphaticall" the enemy of humbug, and
the.efore a medicine of which he was the
inventor and endorser may be confidently re
lied on. He specially recommended it in |
Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Debility, Ver- I
tigo, Acidity of the Stomach, Constipation, !
and all complaints arising from a disordered
condition of the stomach, the liver arid the
intestines. Nine Philadelphia papers express
their conviction of its excellence, and sev
eral ot the editors speak of its effects from
their own individual experience. Under
these circumstances, we teel warranted, not
only in calling the altention of our readers
to Hie present proprietor's (Dr. C. M. Jack
son's) preparation, but in recommending the
article to all afflicted."
Tho "'Philadelphia Saturday Gazette," the
best family newspapei published in the Uni
ted States, the editor says of
"It is seldom that we recommend what
are termed Patent Medicines to tho conli- j
dence and patronage of our readers; and, |
therefore, when we recommend Dr. Hoof
land's German Bitters, we wish it to bo dis I
tinctly understood that we are not speaking!
of the nostrums of the day, that are noised
about for a brief period and then forgotten !
after they have done their guilty race of mis |
chif, but of a medicine long established, i
universally prized, and which has met the |
hearty approval of the Faculty itself."
Evidence upon evidence lias been re- i
ceived (like the foregoing) from all sections j
ot the Union, the last three years, and the
strongest testimony in its favor, is, that there is
more of it used in the practice of the regu
lor Physicians of Philadelphia than all other
nostrums combined, a fact that can easily
be established, and fully proving that n sci
entific preparation will meet with their qui
et approval when presented even in this
That this medicine will euro Liver Com
plaint and Dyspepsia, no one can doubt, al
ter using it as diiected. It acts specifically
upon the stomach and liver—it is preforable
to calomel in all bilious diseases —the offecl is
immediate. They can be administered to
FEMALE or INFANT with safety and reliable
benefit, at any time.
This medicine has attained that high char
acter which is necessary for all medicines to
attain to induce counterfeiters to put forth a
spurious article at the risk of the lives of
those who are innocently deceived.

ATIVE I'ILLS tlirvy have succeeded iu

ever recorded, rurd arc daily accomplishin
the restoration of persons after having triod
in vain to obtnin relief from any other
sour e. One of the Proprietors is a regular
physician of extensive experience, who de
votes his time exclusively to their prepara
tion. For FEVER & AGUE, they have nev
er yet failed. At least one thousand cases
in the neighborhood of Philadelphia, havt,
been cured since the first of Sept., last. In
Dyspepsia, Rheumatism, Liver Complaints
Scrofula, for Worms, and all other disease
of children, they are unequalled by anything
ever prepared for the purpose, while for the
various diseases of Females there is no me
dicine can compare with them. There is
more of them sold—they are in greater de
mand than any other pill—and when onco
introduced in a family, they need no other
medicine. Each box containing Fifty Pills
renders them the cheapest, while they are'
decidedly the best, as well as the mildest in
action, of any now in the market.
The Editor of the "City Item," thus
speaks of them :
UP" R EADER, you are suffering from fever
and ague, arid you have never tried Wors
dell's Vegetable' Restorative Pills. Shake no
more. There is still hope for you—you may
yet be cured- Go, or send at once to A.

procure a box of these unrivaled pills, which
are a sovreign antidote for this distressing
complaint. "

says :

medicine is daily winning now triumphs
