THIS extraordinary medicine is founded upon
the principle that the human frame is subject
to ONLY ONE DISEASE, viz : corrupt humors,
which, when floating in the general mass of cir

when lodged in the various parts of the body, give
rise to every malady incident to man.
Let it be remembered that the hums= body and
Wright's Indian Vegetable Pills are mutually
adapted one to the other, and that by them all

A BLESSED, BLESSED AND HEAVENLY
MIRACLE OF MIRACLES!!
ON the 4th of August, in the year 1843, s
singular scene occurred in the Royal Sci
entific Institute of France. The aged, white
headed President, his head bare, his arm out
stretched, his face radiant with smiles, (for
science was triumphant) and his voice with
gratulatory tone, aelivered the following re
" We are astounded at this singular prepa
ration. Where indeed will science stop !
Here we have a preparation made in the form
of a beautiful piece of soap, which we know
by actual practice. to cure every cutaneous
eruption, every disfigurement of. and even dis
colored skin ! Where will its magic and sin
gular power cease? The Negro, the Creole,
the Yellow Race of the East, and the Red Man
of the Far West, are alike under the influence
of its extraordinary powers of clearing yellow
or discolored skin, and making it white and
beautiful and of changing the color of dark, or
black, or brown skin." Mere several persons
were brought forward by the President, who
had used it, in proof of his assertion.)
There are probably few persons of
who, after reading the above, will doubt
the qualities of
Jones' Italian Chemical Soap
in curing Pimples, Blotches, Salt Rheum,
Scurvy, Erysipelas, Sore Heads. Old Sores,
Beard and Barber's Itch, Chapped and Tender
Flesh, Freckles, Tan, Sunburn and clanging
dark Sunburn or Yellow Skin in a pure clear
white, as smooth and soft as an Infants, and in
fact every kind of eruption and disfigurement.
Read these certificates:
From the New Weans Sentinel, October, 1844.
One our subscribers, r. Leonard', in
forms us that he has been cured of old, scaly
Salt Rheum, of eighteen years standing, on his
beard, fingers, and hands, by a cake of an arti
cle advertised lately—we speak of Jones' Ital
ian Chemical Soap. Ha also informs us that
he has tried its effects on his femalestave Rose,
much marked with sun spots, and he found is
two weeks her skin much clearer and whiter.
James Eltham, a painter, in Jersey City. was
cured of carbuncles, and pimples, which le
was afflicted with for many years, by part of a
cake of ;ones' Italian Chemical Soap.
Persons in purchasing this must always ask
for JONES ITALIAN CHEMICAL SOAP; and per
haps, as many who have been cheated with•
counterfeits, will be too much discouraged to
try the genuine, we say to such, try this once—
you will not regret It: but always see that the

DR. LE ROY'S
Vegetable 111 - ersal Pills
Are a strengthening purgative and a purifying
THE hopes of the American agents are far
more than realised by the success of Dr. Le
Roy'a Vegetable Universal Pills on this side of
the Atlantic. Neier dui a medicine spring into
such immediate popularity. In !ass than three
months eighty thousand boxes have been disposed
of; and certificates of cures performed by them
received from upwards of four hundred persons.
The cures embraced a great number of diseases?
but those which predominated were Billions Fe
ver, Colic, Habitual Costiveness, Dysentery,
Loss of Appetite, Flatulence. Worms and Low
ness of Spirits. All persons who take them agree
that they arc `Sr superior to every other medicine
they had used, in the mildness the energy, and
the efficacy of their action; for though they pro
duce neither gripe nor nausea, they act upon the
secretions with great directness, force and rapid
ity; and as a purgative leave nothing to be desired.
But their great peculiar excellence, and that which
distinguishes them from all other purgatives is,
that their operation is followed by no reaction.--
Their unrivalled purifying and purgative proper
ties, for which they are indebted to the essence of
Sarsaparilla, and other ingredients,beingcontroll
ed by their highly tonic virtues derived from the
extract of Wild Cherry. they ilo not strain the
digestive organs into action, as is the mode of
operation with other cathartics, but on the rontra•
ry strengthen them into action. Thus all other
purgative medicines produce more or less subse
quent costiveness, ai.d sluggishness of the gastric
Juice, while Dr. Le Roy's Pills leave all the ma
chinery of the system full of life activity, and the
bowels open and natural.
