EAD the following from Mr. Sharp, a well

one of the most astonishing cures on record, and,

AVOrIIT t t , IPI7.
I Near the cto'e of the year 1845,1 had an attack
of the Pleurisy and while recovering from it, 1
toot, a se,ere cold. My condition soon became
alarming and I grew gradually worse and worse.
'the symptoms TAM tested by my disease were
those ordinarily found in pulmonary aflictions—
b it were of au exceedingly aggravated-char
...ter. For a long period I expectorated a great
quantity of matter, which appeared a mixture of
pus and blood—at times it seethed as it I was dis
charging the very substance of the Lungs. My
voice Nas gone so as to be unable to utter:4, few
words without great difficulty, and I expelienced
a thousand other painful sensations that cannot
-be told. One of the most unpleasant attendants
of my disease were chilling sweats. The cold
perspiration ran from sue continually, riot only at
night, but also during the day so as to keep my
cloths at all times continually wet.
I employed every means of cure I could hear,
and was attended by several eminent and skillful
'Physicians. But the obstinacy of my disease
baffled all their efforts. They indeed raised me
from my bed, but they also pronounced me incur
able. The lust Physician attending me, told me
at one time, that 1 had but a few days to live—at
another time I might linger on a sew weeks or
months, but that it was utterly impossible that I
could get well, or ever be able to attend to my
business. Thus, with no prospect of recovery I
lingered on during the greater part of the year
1846—for three months ef which period my
friends sat up with me, expecting every night to
see my sufferings end in death.
But last fall, a lady residing in Soutbvvark, wbo
had been cured of somewhat similar sufferings by
"Thompson's Compound Syrup of Tar and Rapti
tha," came and urged upon me a trial of it. Al
most despairing of any relief, andwith no hope of
recovery, I commenced its use. Imagine then
my satisfaction in being able to state that I am
11;OW WELL! and! attribute my restoration en
ti rely to the wonderful efficacy of the above medi

disease began to yield it; hold upon me, and by
steady perseverance in its employment I may say
it has raised me from the grave. All unpleasant

Baltimore, March I'2, 1847
Mr. he. F. Roes.
Dear Sir—About three weeks ago my wife
caught a severe cold, which troubled hers good
deal and gave her great uneasiness: she prepared
a great many articles which were *recommended
to her by her friends, but without receiving the
benefit from any of them ; her sough was getting
worse every day; hi.r appetite was fast tel ling
and to sleep was impossib'e. the pans in her
breast and side became so severe that that she
had to go to bed. and my friends advised me io
call in a J'hysician. I thought I would call in
the store where you were engaged and see if I
could not get something that %took] relieve her,
when you gave me a bottle of your Expectorant,
assuring me that it would core her, she common
ced taking it that night, not, however; without
great opposition on the part of some of he
frionds, who said it was only some "Quark
Medicine," and would do her more harm
than goo d. But I determined to take your advice,
and now let all know the Result From taking the
first dose she felt easier,, though unable to sleep
on account of the quantity of phlegm that loosen.
ed and Whith.l almost choke her, but which else
could spit up with but little difficulty; the follow
ing day she continued it according to the direc
tions. and that time, for the first time for neariy
two weeks, she enjoyed a good night's real and by
the time she had finished the first bottle, she was
entirely cured. Make what use of this you thank
proper, for such an invaluable medicine should be
made known to the afflicted every where. With
best wishes fur your success.
I remain yours &c..

Such is a brief view of what the "United States

hope is confidently cherished that the Ateportei
, will prove itseli an energetic. indmtrione. diva
• ed, and perfectly independent journal. It will
have no party views—no political bias. The pro
prietor, by the terms of his contract wigs the
Senate or the U. States, is bound to the condition
that -the paper shall contain no political d•scus
, sinus except the debates.•' It will he a vehicle of
news, not the organ of any set of opiriona. The
grand aim of the subscriber is to:establish at the

which OM politkiaay•tho business man, the menu.
lecturer, the mechanit, and every one interested in
the affairs of Congress and the Government, may

It is believed that the establishment of such
reliable Journal of Intelligence, on terms which
place it within reach of the great masses or the
people, at the commencement of w bat promises to
be a most interesting and eventlul period in the
history of Congressional proceedings, will be re
garded with favor by all classes of the communi

In February, 1840, a lump or Merin Ant ap

itself until it was hilt the size of • man's hand,
and had eaten into the bong, and one or two smal

clan and others pronounced it Scrofula. Up to
this time every remedy used gave no, relief; the
leg continued to pet worse ;' &nifty the cooly pert
of August my sufferings were intense. I neither.
went to bed or slept regularly for nearly two
weeks, being compelled to set up, with my leg
supported on a choir. About this time my son
brought home with him from Cincinnati market
one of your circulars, which had been thrown in
to the wagon. I read it, and knowing some of
the signers to the Certificate of the case of Mr.
Brooks, and believing from my knowledge of their
characters that they would not lend their names
for the purpose of palming an imposition upon
the public, I concluded to try what effeet it would
have open me. On the 20th of Anguitricieih
red the first bottle, commenced taking it fluent
ing to directions, and in four horns the pain was
so much relieved that I fell asleep and enjoyed that
greatest of blessings, a few hours repose. I con
. trotted using it until the 28th of Angara, when 1
found myself so much better that I went to Cin
cinnati to your Agent, Mr. Danenhou r, with whom
I made arrangements to take 20 bottles, provided
he would guarantee to cure me. He agreed toil*
so, and gave me the privilege of stopping short of
the 20 bottles, whenever.) considered myself well.
