A CERTAIN DISEASE. -It is a melancholy fact that thousands fall victims to this horrid disease owing to the unskilfulness of ignorant pretenders who by the use of that deadly poison Mercury, ruin the Constitution, canning the most serious symptoms of that dreadful disease to make their appearance, such as affections of the head, nose, throat, skin, etc., progressing with frightful ra pidity till death puts a period to their dreadful suffering, by sending them io that Bourne whence no traveler returns. TAKE PARTICULAR Norrea.—Young men who have injured themselves by a certain practice in dulged in when alone—a habit frequently learned from evil companions, or at school—the effects of which are nightly felt, oven when asleep, and if not cured renders marriage impossible, and de stroys both mind and body. What a pity that a young man, the hope of his country, and the darling of his parents should be snatched from all prospects and enjoyments of life by the consequence at deviating from the path of nature and indulging in a certain secret habit. Such persons before contemplating Marriage, should reflect that a sound mind and body are the most necessary requisites to promote connu bial happiness,lndeed without these, the jour ney through ife becomes a weary pilgrimage, the prospect hourly darkens to the view; the mind becomes shadowed with despair, and tilled with the melancholy reflection, that the happiness of another becomos'blighted with our own. CONSTITUTIONAL DEBILITT.—De. J. address es young men, and all who have injured them selves by private and improper indulgence. liirtAsimx,--These aro some of the sad and melancholy effects produced by early habits of youth, viz: Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Pains in the head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Muscular power, Palpitation of the Heart Dys pepsia, Nervous Irritability, Dctangements of the Digestive Functions, General Debility Symptoms of Consumption, &c. BIENTALLY—The fearful effects on the mind are much to he dreaded; Loss of memory, Confusion of ideas, Depression of Spirit, Evil Forbodings: Aversion to Society, Self Distrust, Love of Soli tude,&c., aro some of the evils produced. Tousands of persons of all ages,can now judge what is the cause of their declining health. Los ing their vigor, becoming weak, pale and emacia ted, have singular appearance about the eyes, cough and symtoms of consumption. Married persons, or those contemplating mar riage, being aware of physical weakness, should immediately consult Dr. J. and he restored to per fect health.

As there are so many ignorant and worthless guile's advertising themselves as Physiciatns,ntin ing the health of the afflicted Dr. Johnston would say to those unacquainted with his reputation that his Credentials or Diplomas always hang in his office.

The Celebrated Prize Core for Fever and Ague, by ritA3Tiff rri lIIS Bellied) is purely vegetable, without any portion of foreign, deleterious, or murcarial ingredient whatever in Its composition. The con tents of a single Bottle is sufficient to cure the most obstinate case in a single day. It strengthens the stomach, invigorate. the frame, and restores the system to its tumidly healthy state—in fact, it entirely prevents that languor and prostration of strength which always attends this disease, and is confidently recom mended to all who have tried, in vain, other pre parations. Money making is the °Het of the day, and it is with this object that medicines are preparei; for the cure of diseases to which mankind are subject. It is the 'erne with the baker and butch er, the manufacturer, mechanic, &c., and it is well that there is this stimulus 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 tit of Chills and Fever, is not in a right condition to study out the means of relief; and it is more sensible and natural that lie should look to others, than to depend upon his own prostrated energies for the antidote. For an appropriate and valuable remedy, therefore, it is folly to ob ject, because it is another's interest to dispose of it. To the invalid the important consideration is simply this, "Will I be benefited by the pur chase of the article altered 2" The invalid should inquire into the testimony presented to establish its value; the testimony should he carefully investigated, and just so much credit given to it, and no inure, titan it. deserves, If of a personal character, we should look to the respectability the witnesses. and the opporitt. sity which have Ilea or 1111 observari .

We might enter into a detailed account of t;:v study and labor incident to its preparation—of the scientific principles upon which it is hosed-- of the necessity which exists. in the very nature of the compound, for effecting immediate cures in almost every instance—and of the attract, and respectability of the witnesses who have tes tified to the astonishing cures which it has inva riably performed. We might enumerate tiller eases, and cite the testimony of others, and in deed weary our reader with repetitions of euses. This we deem unnecessary, and shall therefore confine ourselves to a selection of a few of time whose characters and standing in the community are well known, and whose positions gore them the opportunity of testing the value of the Pine Cure. The gentlemen whose Certificates are given. are well known to the citizens of Lancaster and York Counties, in Pennsylvania, besides other portions of that State; also to the citizens of Ma ryland who reside in the neighborhood of the Susquehanna and Tide-water Canal. One of the gentlemen named JAMES MCCONKEY, Esq., re presented York County in the Senate of Penn sylvania for many years. These gentlemen were alt Contractors on the Susquehanna and Tide tram. Canals, which terminate at Havre-de- Grace, at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay.— The officers of the Cotnpanies were, of course, acquainted with the Contractors; and should there be any doubt, application may be made to them for the troth of the representation made in regard to the characters of those whose certificates are appended. TO THE PUBLIC: The undersigned, believing that great benefit will result to the public from a knowledge of the efficacy of the Puma Cone for FEVER and AGUE, do most cheerfully certify that we have, individ ually, witnessed Its successful operation in the number of cases annexed to our respective names, and that, in nu instance within our knowledge, has it failed to cure in n single day, by the use of the contents of a single bottle.

The calamities that every City, Town, Village and Country fulls vic tim to annually, through the grdss negligence of its inhabitant, is beyond caleulation. especially when the remedy is no easy to ohtnin—rlilm Is found in Armitage's Patent Magnetic Lightning Rods, and in this alone. This Roil has been examined by the most scientific gentlemen in the world—Professors M'Murtrie, Johnson, Wallin and many others that have ex amined them. recommend and speak of them in the highest terms of approbation, and have pro nounced them the only sate rods in use in this or any other country, fur the protection of Lives and Property. Ono advantage is to divide and throw hack a part of the electric fluid harmless to the cloud; in time of a stroke this enables the rod to co nduct that portion of (laid that belongs to the earth without the slightest danger of leaving; the conductor. This rod has many other advan tages over the old one.

I have been acquainted with Mr. Armitage for sev eral years, and before he commenced the mann. • flicture of these rods I examined the principle on which they are constructed, and felt convinced that their adoption would be attended with entn plete success. The increasing demand for these rods, and the extensive sales in all parts of the country, is ample commendation of their utility anti superiority. TRACY E. \VALLEE, M. D. Rising Sun, Piffled. ea., April 10, 1852. The following extract is taken from en editori al in the Germantown Telegraph, edited by Major FREAS "The bogus rod placed upon our (beetling we have had taken down; and another crowd by Mr. ARMITAGE, to which we would call the attention of our farmers and readers generally. It is put up on true scientific principles, and is a rod that has been approved by the highest authority, nod will bear the most thorough examination. Those who have been deceived, as wo have been, should lose no time in having a proper protection against lightning, substituted. The cost is a mere bag atelle when compared with the entire safety of our houses and barns against this destructive ele ment. Mr. ARMITAGE'S advertisement will be found in the colunms of this paper; and we feel as though we were performing an imperious duty to the community, by thus inviting to it general attention."

Otl,ooo Reward Pt ll' it!RAMER'S Ilsdro-Electric Voltaic Chains, ARE for the that time introditeed to the people of Huntingdon and vicinity, as the tuns, ,•on ;Knifing, cijecliati,.and strictly scientific mode nf I latantly reli6 , ,Met end permanently curing all NERVOUS DISEASES. Now we know that an announcement similar to the ahoy() meets the eye of thu reader almost dai ly, and perhaps this may ho classed with many others. But listen or you do us injustice. It is claimed that Pulvermacher's Electric Chain, is the only magnetic remedical agent that is secured by patent, granted by this government, on the ground that it was a strictly useful and scientitio article. The Chains are now on exhibition at the Crystal Palace, and attract much attention from the thousands who daily visit it. MODE OF USE. The manner of acing the chains is very simple. The chain in first moistened with common cinvnr, and then one end of the ehaM is applied to the part where the pain is located, and the other end opposite to the tirst. The ends of the chain should never touch each other. At the moment of ap plication, the most acute pain is instantly relieved, wherever it is located, by the passing through the part a cmistunt current of uninterrupted olectro magnetism. In the following dioceses, no othei remedy has over given such complete and pertbet satisfaction to the patient as Pulvermacher's Chains: Rheumatism, Painful and moulted Joints, Pains in the Back, Deafness, Blindness, Paraly sis, Neuralgia in the Face, Long standing Nor voile Headache, Palpitation of the Heart, Gener al Debility, Dyspepsia, Female Diseases,Asthma, Contracted IMuts, 1000 DOLLARS will be given to any person who will produce so many well authenticated certificates of cure from intelligent patients and scientific physicians, of the above diseases, as has been performed by the use of the Eleetrie Chain during the past year. ANOTHER FA'JT. It is truly the fact that wherever the electric chains have been introduced, bottled nostrums and common lard have greatly diminished in sale, people having become disgusted with the practice of using their stomachs for drug shops. RECOMMENDATIONS. The Electric Chains are highly recommended by Professors Mott, Van Bnren, Post and Carno (than, of New York; nre also in daily use in every Hospital in that city. The chains will last for years, are always ready for use, and produce no injurious results, when used as directed. FE MALE DISEASES. The introduction of the Electric Chain into this country is the dawn of a new era in medicine.— During the last twbnty years, it can safely be es timated that ten thousand females have died year ly from this one disease. PROLAPSUS UTERI. It is welt known to medical men that this com mon disease is beyond the reach of medicine, and that in proportion to the amount of medicine giv en, the more the patient is doomed to suffer, and sooner will death close the scene. During the last 2 years more than one thousand cases of Pro!uplifts Uteri (falling of the womb) have been permanently cured in England and France. Most of those eases were ladies of high standing, who had previously tried all other kinds of treatment with no benefit. Among the distin guished lathes that have been cured in Paris is the present Queen of France. In this country, du ring the last year, one hundred cases have been cured in the city of New York, many who have allowed their names to be published for the bene fit of those suffering with similar complaints.— The mode of use is simply . to apply one end of a 30 link chain to the spine j ust above the hips, and the other end upon the abdomen, and allow the ehain to remain for one hour. This to be repeat ed four times during the twenty-four hours. CHRONIC RHEUMATISM. The Electric Chains never fail to relieve the severe pains and swelling incident to this disease. The worst forms of this disease readily yield to a few applications of a chain, and in no single in stance have they failed to give instant relief, if they did not effect a permanent cure. All persons who are victims of this usual winter complaint, are kindly invited to call and obtain a pamphlet of HORACE W. SMITH. Agent for Hon ting,don county, who will also explain their mode of use. • The electric chains can be sent by mail to any pars of the United States, by addressing (post paid) any of the agents in the principal cities, or Joseph &Mum% 568, Broadway Now York.
