Collegesvf the United States, and the greater

ing cures that were ever known, many troubled
with ringing in the head and ears when asleep,
great nervousness, being alarmed at sudden
sounds, and bashfulness, with frequent blushing
attended sometimes with derangement of mind,
were cured immediately.
A Certain Cisease.
When the misguided and imprudent votary
of pleasure finds ho has imbibed the seeds of this
painful disease. it to too often happens that an
ill-tinted sense of shame, or dread of discovery,
deters him front applying to those who from ed
ucation and respecuthility, can alone befriend
him, delaying till , the constitutional symptoms
of this horrid disease make their appearance,
such as ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose,
nocturnal pains in the head and limbs, dimness
of sight, deafness, nudes on the shin bones, and
111 M, blotches on the heed, face and extremities,
progressing with frighttul rapidity, till at last
the palate of the meth or the bones of the nose
fall in, and the victim of this awful disease be
comes a horrid object of commiseration, till
death puts a period to his droadfiti sufferings, by
sending him to "that bourne front whence no
traveller returns," To such, therefore, Dr.
Johnston pledges himself to preserve the most
inviolable secrecy, and from his extensive prac
tice is the first Hospitals of Enrope and Ameri
ca, be can confidently recommend a safe and
speedy cure to the unfortunate victim of this hot
, rid disease.
It is a melancholy fact that thousands fall vic

fulness of ignorant pretenders who by the use of
That deadly poison Mercury, rein the consi

to en untimely grave, or make the resided of his

Take Particular Notice.
Dr. J.. addresses all those who have injured
themselves by improper indulgenei es.
These are seine of the sad and melancholy
effects produced by early habits of youth, viz :
Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Yams in the
head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Muscular pow
er, Palpitation of the Heart Dyspeptic, Nervous
Irritability, Derangements of the Digestive
Functions, general Debility Symptoms of Con
sumption, git.
MENTALLY—The fearful effects on the mind
are much to bo dreaded) Loss of memory, Con
fusion oft lens, Depression of Spirit, Evil For
botlings, Aversion to Society, Self Distrust,
Love of Solitude, Timidity, &c., are some of the
evils produced.
Thousands of persons of all ages, can now
fudge what is the cause of their declining health.
Losing their vigor, becoming weak, pale and
emaciated, have singular apponrauce about the
eyes, tough and symtems of consumption.
Dr. Johnston's Invigorating Reme
dy for Organic Weakness.
By this great and important remedy, weakness
of the organs is speedily cured and full vigor re
stored. Thousands of the most debilitated and
nervous, who had lost all hope, have been im
mediately relieved. All Impediments to Mar
riage, Physical or Mental Disqualification, Ner
vous Irritability, Tremblings and Weakness,
or exhaustion of the most fearful kind, speedily
cured by Doctor Johnston.

learned from evil companions, or at school—the

snatched front all prospects and enjoyments of
life by the consequence oftleviating from the path
of nature and indulging in a certain secret habit
Such persons before contemplating
should reflect that a sound mind and i'ody are
the most necessary requisites to promote connu
bial happiness. Indeed without these, the jour
ney through life 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 becomes blighted with our own.
To Strangers.
The many thousands cured at this Institution
within . the last 15 years, and the numerous im
portant Surgical Operations perforated by Dr.
Johnston, wttnessed by the Reporters of the pa
pers, and other persons, notices of which
have appeased again and again before the pub
