We have been shown, by Mr. John Bull, proprietor of
that world-renowned preparation, " Bull's Fluid Extract of
Sarsaparilla," an original, genuine, and beautiful letter,

most eminent old physicians in the West, giving a detailed
acentint clone of the most astonishing ,'ores on record, per
formed alone by the um of "Bull's Sarsaparilla."
This met excellent and charming lady had long guttered
from prolapsum uteri, fluor albus, plies, and chronic diseases
of the stoney-1i nod digestive organs, and derangement of
the whole system, attended with distressing cutaneous erup

result? After the use of IL few bottles, a perfect and wolo

more real gratification, than could the possession of count-

It is useless to produce further testimony in favor of thin

vinee tLe public of its superior 'lflcacy.
Notice to Females,
John Bull's Sarsaparilla is ono of the greatest female
medkines now in existence. In those numerous cases
when. the constitution is debilitated, tho nervous energy is
lessened, when the efforts of nature me weak and donde.,
or are prnfuso and overwrought, when the face is pale and
colorless, the strength feeble and yielding, the spirit trom
hind and depressed, the health broken, mind alinken, and
consequently the happiness destroyed—than Bull's Sara.
parilla is a sovereign remedy. It assists nature in the per
formance of her duty, braces the whole system, renews
permanently the natural energies, removes obstructions,
cheeks exeesses,ereates pure and healthy blood, and Imparts
health and happiness. Wean ladles generally to adopt the
use of this Meting., vie worth) see far less suffering, disease
and unhappiness among them than now exist, health would
take the Owe of disease, Oh, rosy cheek would suceeed the
pallid face: toe should have smiles instead of teem and per a happy long life instead of one cut short by disease,
or made miserable by continued suffering and affliction.
At that critical wiled termed the turn of life," which is
often attended with so much danger, Bull's Sarsaparilla la
found to exert a most beneficial effect. All ladies approach
ing this crisis, should Is. apprised of this fact, and avail
themselves of this valuable Medicine.
A BEAUTIFUL CLEAR SKIN.

seeping this "desideratum so devoutly to be wished," re.
aorting to ,opniotica, lotions, washes, pains, and coloring
materials, to restore to them a semblance of what disease
has deprived them of, and that, too, with great injury to
the skin. Bull's Sarxiyarilla is the beet Cosnietie known.
It beautifies the skin by removing every particle of morbid
and diseased matter from the blood, making it purr, heal
thy and vigorour, giving activity to every minute vessel,
and ehanging the yellow and dark countenanco to the
bloom and freshness of youth. Ladies, abandon the use at

Ilv;TraaDoN, March 11, MO
For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth
ers, I do freely declare the following facts
have suffered more or less for twenty years with
the most desperate Rheumatism, and also for 18
years at times with most desperate pain in the
stomach, which at times seemed to expand as if
it would burst; also for many years I was ter
ribly troubled with cramps in my legs—indeed
I can't describe all my sufferings for so long a
time. I could do no business for the last ten
years, nor had I a single good night's sleep for
the last five years. I never could find any relief
worth mentioning, until last November, when I
met with the Extract of American Oil, and to
my no little surprise I got relieved of all in a
short time and to this day. I respectfully in
vite all who choose to call and see me upon the
matter; such I can tell much more. I can say
it has done wonders on others around me in va
rious complaints. If ever an article was put
out honestly, this is one. I know it sells rap
idly here. No family in the land will be with
out it when they once know its use.
HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
1 do hereby certify to the following facts :—
That I have suffered for five years past with
pain in my back, spine and kidnies, and never
received any relief but by bleeding, for a few
clays only. Last November I got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, I used it inward
ly, and to my surprise it removed the complaint
in a short time. From what I have seen and
heard of its wondrous effects upon others in des
perate cases, I can freely recommend ir, and be
lieve it to be worthall the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. Cowl's.
LEwis•rowv, Murch 1850
I never before gave a certificate, but this I
give with a clear conscience for the benefit of
sufferers like myself. I suffered with the Ery.
sipelas or St. Antony's Fire, mixed with Tet
ter, so pronounced by my doctor, for 12 years.
The suff.ring I endured is beyond description.
At times all my hair came off my head. During
this time I hail .no relief or more than a few
days at a time. Last October 1 got a bottle of
the Extract of American Oil, used it inwardly
and outwardly, and to my great astonishment
and my neighbors, I got clear of it in a short
time, and to this time I have noticed its won
drous effects on other desperate complaints. I
do assure my friends and the public that it is
indeed a wonde-ful thing for many romplaints.

artists and sciotilic men, UNRIVALLED, for depth of
tone and softness of light and shade. By working
themselves, they not only produce pictures which
are GOOD AND CHEAP! ! but by far the best
and cheapest which can be produced at any other
establishment. Their charge for pictures in hand
some improved cases, range from ONE DOLLAR
to three dollars, depending on the size of the pic
ture, being scarcely one-half the prices charged at
other establishments, for pictures of equal size—

collection of DISTINGUISHED AMERICANS

were loud in their praise of the artists' skill.

Avaluable farm and tract of land situate on
the Big Aughwick Creek, in Huntingdon

contain a large excess over the official quantity,
originally surveyed in pursuance of a warrant
in the name of David Franks, and is now in the
occupancy of Simon Gratz. A good part of the
tract is improved bottom land of first rate quali

wishing to purchase a good farm. It is but about
