A BOUT Hvo years ago a new discovery
was made ill Europe, consisting of a
substitute for lite ordinary store coffee, called
Essence of Collee, which has gone into gen
eral use with astonishing rapidity, not only
amonit the poorer classes, who at once dis
pensed with the use ol the celebrated Chick
ory Coffee, but is now in general use in the
wealthiest families and the first hotels, and
is highly recommended by the medical fac
11 is extracted from pure, wholesome veg
etables, and excels all similar preparations
that have ever been offered to the public,
either in this country or in Europe. Its sul
perior quality has already been attested to in
the cities by some of the most eminent phys
icians, and a number of the most distinguish
ed of the cleray and other highly respectable
citizens. Coffee made from this essence ac
cording to lite prescription obtains a more
delicious and pleasant favor titan the com
mon store coffee, and is certainly more
wholesome, especially for persons in deli
cate health, which will be admitted by eve
ry physician who will take the pains to lest
the naluie and properties of litis essence.
One paper costing only 12J cts., is equal
to four pounds of store coffee, will be bright
and clear without the application of any
other ingredient to clarify or settle it. The
public uro therefore invited to give this es
sence at least a trial before they condemn it.
A respectable merchant of Luzerne coun
ty in writing of it says:
"My customers have been using of the
above Essence for some months past with
general satisfaction ; and Ido not hesitate
|e recommend it to the public.

The nfiJiiteil nro invited to call and see Mi
Isaac llrooks, Jr., althe corner of Third and
W ilcox streets, and Mies Christiana Sands,
Roach street below Spruce street, i n the Schuy 1
kill. These two persona have btcn snutched
from the very jaws of the destroyer through 'he 1
ngcuoy of that most potent of all medicines,
11l Cullen's Panacea is the only certain cure
for Scrofula or King's KU, Tetter, Erysipelas,
Old Sores and Ulcers, Mercurial Diseases, and all
other alfestions, cutaneous or otherwise, arising
from impurities of the blood.
In the extraordinary cure of Mr. Brooks, peo
ple whu vistt hiin, hold up their hands in as
tonishment, that AMI medicine could have ar
rested urs disease—then go away resolved to re
commend Or Cullen's Indian Vegetable Pana
cea to every one they hear of who has need of a
purifying medicine. I
Bo with Christiana Sands—hor cure of Scrof
ulous sore throat was quite as extraordinary as
Mr. Brooks', when we reflect that from the dis
ease her tea or coffee would frequently pass out
of her ears, when attempting to drink, [See 1
her certificate.]
The people are beginning to understand, too
that tbo various Syrups of Sarraparilla are little
better than molasses, and that it is madness to
throw away money on articles which, under the
most favorable circumstances, do not produce
any impression on the system until several gal
ons have been swallowed. One bottle of Ur.
Cullen's Panacea seldom fails to produce con
viction itv the minds of paiieuta that a radical
cure is certain.
Thus hope, [ro necessary, an ally to medi
cine.] springs up at the ontvet, and the patient
is cured before any other preparation could have
made the slightest impression upon the disease I
In fact, the twelve ounce bottles of Di. Cul
len's Panacea, compared with the pint and quart
buttles of other purifiers, aro valuable about in
the proportion of gold to copper. Those who
wontc prefer s penny to a half eagle, on acroun
of its size, wcold make a poor selection to sal
I be least.
Baisaparilla a good purifier I Dr. Cullen's
Panacea contains its attract in its most concen
trated form. Added to this are other extracts,
more active and poweiful, and which effect in
combination with the Bnrsaparilla, what the lat
ter article, or combined with the most powerfu
poisons, cannot alono accomplish.
It Itss cured where everything else had failed
and this in a multitude of cases—not ill Euiope
or in the moon, (whero so many great cures
have been performed,) hut in Philadelphia and

understood that we do not obtain our extracts by

A Gteat Dyspepsia curer, Prepared from
RENNET,or the fourth Stomach of the Ox,
after directions of llaron Liebig, the great
Physiological Chemist, by J. S. Houghton,
M. D., No.ll, Notth Eighth Street, Phila
delphia, PB.
This is a truly wonderful remedy for Indi
gestion, Dyspepsia, Jaudiea, Liver
plaint, Constipation, and Debility, Curing
after Nature's own method, by Nature s owu
agenf, tho Gastric Juice.
C9~ Half a spoontul of this Fluid, infused
in water, will digest or dissolve, Five Pounds
rf Roast Beef in about two hours, out of tho
Digestion is Chielly performed in the
stumaqh by the aid of a fluid which freely
: exudes from the inner coat of that organ,
When in a state ol health, called the Gastric
Juice. This fluid is the Great solvent of tho
Food, the Purifying, Preserving, and Stimula
ting Agent of the stomach and intonstinen.
Without it there 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 tho
whole digestive apparatus. A weak, half
dead, or injured stomach produces no good
Gastric Juice, and hence the dis
roes and debility which evrtl._
PEPSIN AMI RENNET.—Pepsin is the chl'e
element, or great Digesting Principle of the
Gastric. Jujce. It is found in great abun
dance In the solid parts of the human stom
ach after de ith, and sometimes causes the
stomach to digest itself, or eat i'solf up. It
is also found in the stomach of animals, a
the ox, call", &c. It is the material used by
farmer* in making cheese, called Rennet,
the • fleet of which has long been the spe
cial wonder of tho dairy. The curtflittg of
milk is the first process of digestion. Ren
net possesses astouishi' g power. The stnm
ach of a call will curdle nearly one thou
sand times its own weight of milk. Bare
Liebig states that, 'One part of Pepsin dtw
solved in sixty thousand parts of water, wit
digest meat and other food," Diseased
stomachs produce no good Gastric Juice
Rennet or Pepsin. To show that this want
may be pfirleclly supplied, we quote the
scientific evidence?
BARON LIKBIC, in Lis celebraleil work on
nimal Clirmislry, ta ys : "An Artificial Di
eslivo Fluid analago lis to the Gastric Juice,
may be readily prepared from the nucous
gmembrane of the stomach of ihe Call,
which various articles of food, as meat anil
eggs" will be softened, changed, and diges
ted, Just in the same manner as they would
be in the human slomadt."
Dr. Pereira m his famous treatise on
"Food and Diet," published by Fowlers &
Wells, New York, page 35. states the same
great fact, and describes the method of prep
aration. There aro few higher authorities
than Dr. Pereira.
Dr Combe, in his valtfable writings on
die "Physiology of Digestion," observe
hat "a diminution of the due quantity o
he Gastric Juice is a prominent and all-pru
ailingcause of Dyspepsia"' and he stale,
that "a distinguished professor of medicine
in London, who wae severely afflicted vtih
this complaint, finding every thing else to
fail, had recourse to the Gastric Juice, ob
! tuined from the stomach of living animals
which proved completely successful."
Dr. Graham, amber ef the famous work
on "Vegetable Diet," says: "it is a remar
kable fact in physiology, that the stomachs
of animals, macerated in water, impart to
the Uuid the property of dissolving various
articles of food, and of effecting a kind of
artificial digestion of them in n wise dif
ferent from the natural digestive process."
Dr. Simon's great work, the "Chemistry
of Man," (Ltmb Blanrhard, Phila.. JB-16,
pp. 321-2): "The discovery of PEPSIN
fo ms a uow era iu the chemical history of
Digestion. From recent experiments wer
know that food is dissolved as rapidly in an
artificial digestive fluid, prepared from Pep
sin, as it lean die natural Gastric Juice it
self." I
Professor Dunghson of the Jefferson Col
lege, Philadelphia, in his great work on Hit
man Physiology, devotes more than fifty
pages to an examination of this subject,
llis experiments with Dr. Beaumont, on th
Gastric Juice, obtained from the living hu
man stomach and from animals are well
knowi:. "lit all cases," he says, "digestion
occurred at perfectly in the artificial as lha
natural digestions."
As a DYSPEPSIA CURER, Dr Houghton'®
preparation of Pepsin has produced the
most marvellous effects, curing case# of De
bility, Emaciation, Nervous Decline, and
dispeptic Consumption, supposed to be on
the very verge of the grave. It is imposs
