Remedy for the Infloonsa.
THE Influenza, which is now in Almost sanityrigt
epidemic, is exciting the invenforo of puma
medicines to increased exertions in the pa* hoe,
but owing to the general distrust entertained far do
generality of such drugs, people fear taking deeou - ..
The following, however, from a distinguished
clan in New York, Dr. Nelson, we think mei tritt
"The object of the present c ommunication issta tee
ommend a single remedy. cheap and of easy access be
the poor, and to caution them against an injurious one
in this disease, namely, bleeding, either general or by
leeches. In all those eases in which the first class of
symptoms prevail, let tho patient smell frequently ist
a common salts bottle, (Sims' Aromatic Valet!' e
Salts are preferred) and by putting the vial to the
mouth to draw a few deep inspirations of volatile mar
ter into the lungs. Let this process be repeated two
or three times in an hour, and it will give more speedy
and greater relief, in all slight cases of the first class
than any other remedy, and will be sufficient for a
cure. It will also be essentially useful in the severs
cases; and those of the class of prostration, a feu
drops of amonia, or hartshorn, ought to taken inter
nally. A neat way of doing so is to take an old. fash
ioned mixture called lac a mmoniaci. However, it is
as a local remedy, to act on the disordered surfeit's,
that its use is advised. The principles will be recog
nized by all physicians versed in molecular organiser
Lion, and those who aro 3-cadent in that knowledge
may do in that instance as they do in all others --get
upon the faith they imbibe." These salts are for isle
and within the reach of all classes, at Wm. Toostit's,
