Money making the order of the day. end It
is with this object that medicines are prepared
for the cure of diseases to which mankind are
silbject. It is the same with the baker and butch
er, the manufacturer, mechanic, Ito., and it is
well that there ie this nimble to induce the
thoughtful and skilful to devise and prepare in
convenient form, suitable remedies for the afflic
ted. An individual, under a distressing and tor
turing fit of CIO, rand Freer, is not in a right
condition to study out the menus of relief; and it
is more sensible anti natural that he should look
to others, than tri depend upon his own prostrated
energies for the •antidote. For an appropriate
and valuable remedy, therefore, it is folly to 0)-
ject, because it is another's interest to dispose of
' it. To :he invalid the important consideration
is eimply this, "Will I he benefited by the pur•

The invalid should inquire into the testimony
presented to establish its value; the testimony
should be carefully investigated, and just no much
credit given to it, and no more, than it deserves.
If of a personal character, we should look to the
respectability of the witnesses, and the opportu
nity which they have had for an observation of
the facto, and the probable impartiality, and con
sequent truthfulness, of their statements. Cor
roborating statements of a number of respectable
witnesses to the truth of any fact, may amount
to irresistible evidence.
We might enter into a detailed account of the
study and labor incident to its preparation—of
the scientific principles upon which it is based—
of the necessity which exists, in the very nature
of the compound, for effecting immediate cure.
