SPECIMEN COPIES of the above pa
pers seat gratis lo any address, on applica
tion. TO ADVERTISERS, Tbe circulation of
the Philadelphia AGE, which is steadily
and rapidly growing, makes it at least as
valuable a medium for advertising as any
other commercial and business newspaper
in Philadelphia; and the fact that it reach
es a large class of conservative readers,
scattered over a vast extent of country, who
do not. take any other Philadelphia paper,
commends it, to an extraordinary degree, L
as a means of comman:cating with the pub
lic not possessed by any other JournaUpub
lisbed in ibis city.
The AGE is now established on a sore
and permacent foundation. The publish
ers could easily fill their columns w'th the
unsought and most liberal commendations
of the press throughout the country; bat
they prefer that it should stand altogether
upon claims to public confidence well
known and established. It will be, as here
tofore, the snnporter ol the National, Con-
servavive, Democratic, Union JfrincipJes,
opposed alike to radicalism and fanaticism
in every form, and devoied to the main
tenance of Good Government, Law, and
Order. The revival of all the business
relations of the country, consequent upon
the suppression of the rebellion and the
restoration of peace, .will enable the pub
lishers to make a number of improvements
in the various departments of this Journal,
and they, therefore, respectfully solicit the
support of all who wish to secure one of
the beat Commercial, Literary, Business,
and Family newspapers ia the country.

This certifies that I have used ihe Pbce
nix Pectoral in my family, and I recom
mend it to the Public an ihe very best
remedy for congh and. colds that I have
ever tried One of my children was taken
with a cold, accompanied with a croupy
cough, so bad, indeed, that it could not
talk and scamely breathe. Having heard
k much said about the Phcenix Pectoral
I procured a bottle of it. The first dose
relieves the difficulty of breathing, and be
fore the child had taken one fourth of the
bottle it was entirely well. Every family
should have it in their house.
