Eruptions, Rheumatism, and every Disease
arising from an impure state of the blood.
The great pow.: of this valuable Medicine
being now fully established by the many cures
it has effected of CONSUMPTION, BRON
rities of the blood, has sufficiently proven to
the public its superior panaceal power above
all nostrums now in use. Price $l.
Tea Liven, being the largest gland in the
human body, is more frequently deranged in
its healthy action than any other. The con
sequences of this derangement are first Dys
pepsia, known by costiveness belching up of
wind, sour stomach, and sometimes Diarrhcca
or looseness of the bowels, head-ache, nervous
feelings, cold feet, wakefulness, and variable
appetite, &c. Secondly, if the above symp

Medicine, (which will always cure or remove
them,) then follows debility of the lungs and
predisposition toconsninption..
Dr. Rose has been called on by over TuREE
THOUSAND CASES within the last few years, and
many of them had tried the various bitter com
pounds to their delusion; fortunately the most
were in time and were soon cured by the above
compound, which contains no mercury, and
does not injure, but always improves the con
stitution, as thousands can testify. Price 50
This beautiful preparation has beenus;lby
me in a full practice of thirty years in the city
of Philadelphia, and is a never-failing remdy for
cholera-morbus, dysentery, bowel complaint,
flatulency, &c. Price 25 cents.
This compound having been used by me in a
full practice of twenty-six years, with the most
beneficial results in cases of worms, has so well
established its superiority above most other
worm medicines that the demand has increased
beyond all calculation. All medicines should
be prepared by a physician and chemist. It is
true that many articles are now sold as good
for worms, but it should be remembered that
many are too powerful for the constitution of
young children. Price 25 cents.
These pills are confidently recommended for
Dyspepsia, disease of the Liver, Costiveness,
and for the constant use of families, as they are
mild, and certain in their operation, causing no
',sin or uneasiness, leaving the bowels perfect
ly free from costiveness. Price 15 cents.
SYRUP, a certain cute for all diseases of the
lungs, spitting of blood, bronchitis, asthma,
colds, coughs, and consumption. This syrup
has no equal. Fifty cents and 51 per bottle.
This invaluable compound for — ;ile — hair has
been used and highly recommended by the late
a nd truly great Dr. Physic, of Philadelphia.—
Price 50 cents.
There has been many remedies compounded
for the cure of Croup or Hives. The disease
Is particularly prevalent among children, and
often fatal; but as I have never seen a case
terminate fatally or continue long where this
syrup was used, I can recommend it with the
highest confidence. Price 25 cents. See di
The a ffl icted arei nv ited to call upon the
Agent, and procure (gratis) one of the Doctor's
pamphlets giving a detailed account of each
remedy and its application.
These medicines are in high repute, and can
be relied upon as suiting the diseases for which
they are recommended, as they are the result of
an extensive practice for the last thirty years
in the city of Philadelphia.

of the steam, h nul digestive organs, and derangement of
the whole system:it ttr.drd with distressing cutaneous erup".

exhausting all or her husband's skill, and applying to many

HUNTINGDON, March 11, 1850.
For the benefit of sufferers like me and oth

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

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

I 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 It, and be
lieve it to be worth all the humbugs in the land,
and do believe it will do all for what it is so
highly recommended. C. COUTS.
I,EWISTOWN, March 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 Tel
ter, so pronounced by my doctor, for 12 years.
The suffering I endured is beyond description.
At times all my hair came off my head. During
this time 1 had no relief for 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 wonderful thing for many complaints.
I invite all whochoose to visit me inLewistown.

Improvement In Daguerreotypeing
VAN LOAN & CO., No. 118, Chesnut street,
Philadelphia, have, by recent discoveries in
their art, enabled themselves to take pictures at
all times, with great certainty—as well in stormy
as clear weather—which are justly pronounced by
artists and ,cietific 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—
but of inferior quality. Their GALLERY OF Pon-
TRAITS, consisting of some hundreds, embraces a
worthy the attention of visitors to their rooms,
which are OPEN AT ALL TIMES.
The collection which they had deposited in the"
exhibition of the Franklin Institute, was constant
ly surrounded by dense crowds of admirers, who'
were loud in their praise of the artists' skill.
To guard against every possibility of mistake;
they guarantee every pieture'to be of the best ma
terials, and sinless it is entirely satisfactory to dui
customer, NO CHARGE IS MADE.
CIT When visiting the city call at their rooms;
whether you wish a Daguerreotype or not. The'
admission is free, and you will be pleased with
your visit. Don't forget the number, 118 Chesnut

A valuable farm and tract of land situate on
11 the Big Aughwick Creek, in Huntingdon
county, containing by the official draft 227 acres,
but by subsequent re-survey has been found to
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•
ty, and is well worth the attention of persons
wishing to purchase a good farm. It is but about
