affair, to distribute the 100,'000 Gifts amongst
the ticket holders, hare deferred the distri
bution until the bth of July, on account ol
there remaining unsold some few thousands
of tickets. Mr. Perham, ever anxious to
meet the views of hie patrons, offers extraor
dinary inducements to Agents to engage in
the sale of the remaining tickets, so that
there may be no more delays, which are un
questionably as vexatious to him as to those
who have purchased tickets in his enter

1 beg leave to call the attention of the citi
zens oi Pennsylvania to the above article,
manufactured by myself exclusively, at my
Factory in Schiedam, in Holland, expressly
for medicinal purposes.
It is made from the best Barley that can be
selected in Europe and the essence of an ar
omatic Italian berry, of acknowledged and
extraordinary medicinal properties; and it
has long since acquired a higher reputation,
both in Europe and America, than any other
allelic beveiage.
In Gravel, Gout, a'ld Rheumatism; in Ob
structions of the Bladder and Kidneys, and
liability of the Urinary Functions, its ef
fects are prompt, decided, and invariably re
liable. And it is not only a Remedy for these
maladies, but, in all cures in which they are
produced by Drinking Bad Water, which is,
almost universally, the cause of them, it op
crates as a Sure Preventive.
The distressing effect upon the Stomach,
Bowels, and Bladder, to travelers, new resi
dents, and all persons unaccustomed to litem
produced by the waters of nearly all our great
mlann rivers like I lie Ohio, Mississippi, and
Alabama, from the large quantity of decay
ed vegetable matter contained in tbem, in a
state of solution, is well known ; as is also
that of the waters of limestone regions, in
producing Gravel, Calculi, ami Stone in Ike
SCHNAPPS is an absolute corrective ot all
these injurious properties of bad wa'er, and
consequently prevents the disease which
tbey occasion. It is also found to be a cure
and preventive of Fever and Ague, a com
plaint caused by the oonjoin; effects of vege
table malaria in the atmosphere, and vegeta

Aromatic Schiedam Schnapps is consequent

I beg leave to call the attention of the pub
lic la the following letters from physicians:
"laboratory, N. Y., May 2, 1855.
" Ma. UrDot.rno WOLFE— Dear Sir: I can
not speak to highly of the purity of your Schi
edam Schnapps. It is decidedly superior to
anything of the kind in market. It is per
fectly free from the admixture ol I'nsil nil,
Or of any of those arnyhc compounds which
produce such a mischievous and irreparable
effect upon the constitution, and whirh very
few samples of alcoholic distilled iiqubrs are
without—most ol them being largnlj impreg
nated with it. I have personally inspected
the various process of distillation practiced
at Schiodam, and know that unusual care is
taken to separate the noxious elements
frcm the pure alcohol, and your Schnapps i"
a striking proof of its success. As a medici
nal agent for chronic and renal affections, 1
have successfully prescribed it, and recom
mend it as an agreeable cordial and harm
less stimulant, and shall coutinue to do so;
as well as to use it as a source of pure alco
hol for chemical investigations and expert
wants. obedient, I-AIAII DECK. '
Consulting Analytical Chemist."
Dr. Charles A. Leas, Commissioner of
Health, Baltimore, writes as follows in rela
tion to the value of Schnapps ss a remedy
in chronic catarrhal complaints, tic. The
letter is dated July 27, 1853:
"1 take great pleasure in bearing highly
creditable testimony to its efficacy as a rem
edial agent in the diseases for which you rec
ommend it. Having a natural tendency to
the mocous surfaces, with a slight degree of
stimulation, t regard it as one of the most
important remedies in chronic catarrhal af
fections, particularly those of the genilo uri
nary apparatus. With much repsen, your
obedient servant, CHARLES A. LEAS.

Obstinate case ofggavelr avel and stone, of some five
years standing, eauting very acute pain in

remedies without much relief, I was induced to
try a bottle of your medicine. In the course
of threes days it proved effectual, dislodging
large piecss of atone, some of which were as
large as a marrowfat pea. I continuad tbe cor
dial, according to direction a, and the patient
continued to gsia, and is faa t recovering, I
