FOR the last three years I have been engaged
in a business known only to myself, and,
comparatively, few others, whom I have instruc
ted for the sum of $2OO each, which averaged
me at the rate of $2,000 to $3,000 per annum ;
uni‘having made arrangements to go to Europe
in the fall of 1857 to engage in the same busi
ness, I am willing to give full instructions in the
art to any person in the United States or Cann
das, who will remit me the sum of $l. lam
induced, from the success I have been favored
with, and the many thankful acknowledgements
I have received from tissue whom I have instruc
ted, and who are making from $5 to $l5 per
day at it, to give any person an opportunity to
engage in this business, which is easy, pleasant,
nod very profitable, at a small cost. There is
positively No Hosinto in the matter. Referen
ces of the best class can be given as regards its
character, and I can refer to persons whom I
have instructed, who will testify that they are
making from $5 to $l5 per day at the same. It
is a business in which either ladies or gentlemen
can engage, and with perfect ease make n very
handsome income. Several LADIES in various
parts of New York State, Pennsylvania and
Maryland, whom I have instructed arc now ma
king from $3 to $6 per day at it. It is a gene
ral business, and but a few shillings is required
to start it. Upon receipt of $l, I will immedi
ately send to the applicant a printed circular cou-
Wining full instructions in the art which can be
perfectly understood at once.
All letters must be addressed (post-paid) to

ness, and an article which is wanted in every
family in the United States. Enclose me two
dollars by mail, at my risk, and I will forward
by return mail a Circular, with full instructions
in the art. The business is very easy. Try it,
if you are out of employment, and you will ne•

the above sum, and insure a good business,
than to pay twenty•five cents for a spurious ad
vertisement. Thus is no humbug. Ty it !

I sent one of my circulars to an Editor in
Georgia, and he gave me a notice in his paper
like the following :
"Mr. Monroe sent me one of his Circulars,
and I will just say to my readers that whoever
of you are out of employment that Mr. Monroe's
business is a good business, and money can be
made out of it by any one who engages in it,

Greatest Medical Discovery of
the Age.
Dr. Kennedy, of Roxbury, has discovered in
one of onr common pasture weeds a remedy that

from the worst scrofula down to a common pim.
He has tried it in over 1100 cases, and never
lulled except i n two cases. (both thunder humor.)
Ho has now in his possession over twu hundred
certificates of its virtue, all within twenty miles
of Boston.

Two to three bottles are warranted to cure

Three to four bottles are warranted to curd

Five to eight bottles will cure the Worst case
of scrofula. • - - .
A benefit it always experienced from the first
bottle, and a perfect cure is warranted when
the above quantity is taken.
Reader, I peddled over a thousand bottles
of this in the vicinity of Boston. I knew the
effect of it in every case. So sure as water will
extinguish fire, so sure will this cure humor.—
I never sold a bottle of it but that sold another;
after a trial it always speaks for itself. There
are two things about this herb that appear to
me surprising; first it grows in our pastures in
some places quite plentiful and yet its value
has never been known until I discovered it in
lB46—second that it should cure all kinds of
humor. _ . .
In order to give some idea of the sudden rise
and great popularity of the discovery. I will
state that in April, 1853, I peddled It and sold
about six bottles per day—in April, 1854, I sold
over one thousand per day of it.
Some of the wholesale Druggists who have
been in business twenty and thirty years, soy
that nothing in the annals of patent medicines
was ever like it. There is a universal praise
of it from all quarters.
In my own practice I always strictly
for humor—but since its introduction as a gen

Several eases of epileptic fits—a disease
which was always considered incurable, have

91HE founder of this Celebrated Institution,
1 offers the most certain, speedy, and only
effectual remeay in the world for (Beets, Stric
tures, Seminal Weakness, Pain in the Loins,
Constitutional Debility, Impotency, Weakness
of the Back and Limbs, Affections of the Kid—
neys, Palpitation of the Heart, Dyspepsia, Ner
vous Irritability, Disease of the heed, Throat,
Nose or Skin ; and all those serious and melan
choly disorders arising from the •destructive
habits of Youth, which destroys both body and
mind. These secret and solitary practices are
more fatal to their victims than the song of the
Syrens to the mariner Ulysses, blighting their
most brilliant hopes of anticipations, rendering
marriage, &c., impossible.
• Young Men,
especially, who have become the victims of Sol
itary Vice, that dreadful and destructive habit,
which annually sweeps to an untimely grave
thousands of young men of the most exalted
talents, and brilliant intellect, who might oth
erwise have entranced listening senates with
the thunders of eloquence, or waked to ecstacy
the living lyre, may cull with all confidence.
Married persons, or young men contempla
ting marriage, being aware of physical weak
ness, organic debility, deformities, &c., should
immediately consult Dr. Johnston.
Fe who places himself under the care of Dr.
Johnston may religiously confide in his honor as
a gentleman, and confidently rely upon his skill
as a physician.
Organic Weakness,
immediately cured, and full vigor restored,
This disease is the penalty most frequently
paid by those who have become the victim of
improper indulgencies. Young persons are too
apt to commit excesses from not being aware of
the dreadful consequence that may ensue.—
Now, who that understands the subject will pre
tend to deny that the power of Procredtion Is
lost sooner by those,falling into improper habit
than by the prudent. Besides being deprived
of the pleasure of healthy offspring, the most se
rious and destructive symptoms to mind and bo
dy arise: The system becomes deranged , the
physical and mental powers weakened, nervous
debility, dyspepsia, palpitation of the heart, in
, digestion, s wasting of the frame, cough symp
toms of Consumption.

A Cure warranted, in Two Drys.
Dr. Johnston,
Member of the Royal College of Surgeons,
London, graduate from one of the most eminent
Colleges of the United States, and the greater
part of whose life has been spent in the first Ilos
pitals of London, Paris Philadephin, and else
where, has effected some of the most astonish
ing cures that wore ever known, many troubled
with ringing in the head and ears when asleep,
great nervousness, being alarmed at sudden
sonnds ' and bashfulness, with frequent blushing
attended sometimes with derangement of mind,
were cured immediately.
A Certain Disease
When the misguided and imprirdent votary
of pleasure finds ho bee imbibed the seeds of this
painful disease. it to too often happens that an
ill-timed sense of shame, or dread of d iscovery,
deters hint from applying to those who from ed
ucation and respectability, can alone befriend
him, delaying till the constitutional symptoms
of this horrid disease make their appearance,
such us ulcerated sore throat, diseased nose,
nocturnal pains in the bend and limbs, dimness
of sight, deafness, nodes on the shin bones, and
arms, blotches on the head, face and extremities,
progressing with frightful rapidity, till at last
the palate of the mouth or the bones of the nose
fall in, foul the victim of this awful disease be
comes n horrid object of commiseration, till
death puts a period to his &cntrol sufferings, by'
sending him to "that bourne from whence no
traveller returns," To such, therefore, Dr.
J o h n ston pledges himself to I.reserve the most
inviolable secrecy, .d from his extensive prac
tice in the first Hospitals of Europe and Ameri
ca, he can confidently recommend a safe and
speedy cure to the unfortunate victim of this hot
rid disease.
It is a melancholy fact that thousands fell vic
tims to this horrid disease owing to the unskil
fulness of ignorant pretenders who by the use of
'hat deadly poison Mercury, ruin the cons.i
tution, end either send the unfortunate Filth:roe
to an untimely grave, or make the residue of hit
life mit °rabic.
Take Particular Notice.
Dr. J.. addresses all those who have injured
themselves by improper indulgenci es.
These are some of the sad and melancholy
effects produced by early habits of youth, viz:
Weakness of the Back and Limbs, Pans in the
head, Dimness of Sight, Loss of Muscular pow
er, Palpitation of the Heart Dyspepsia, Nervous
Irritability, Derangements of the Digestive
Functions, :moral Debility Symptoms of Con
Mnsysta,—The fearful effects on the mind
are mach to be dreaded; Loss of memory, Con
fusion oft lens, Depression of Spirit, Evil For
bodings, Aversion to Society, Self Distrust,
Love of Solitude, Timidity, Sc., are some of the
evils produced.
Thousands of persons of all ages, can now
;edge what is the cause of their declining health.
Losing their vigor, becoming weak, pale and
emaciated, bare singular appearance about the
eyes, tough and symtozns 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, Trembling& and Weakness,
or exhaustion of the most fearful kind, speedily
cured by Doctor Johnston.
Young Men,
who have injured themselves by a certain prac
tice indulged in when alone—a hnbit ftequently
learned from evil companions, or at school—the
effects of which are nightly felt, even when a
sleep, and if not cured renders marriage impos
sible, and destroys both mind and body, should
apply immediately.
What a pity that a young man, the hope of hie
country, and the darling of his parents should be
snatched front all prospects and enjoyments of
life by the consequence of deviating from the path
of nature and indulging in a certain secret habit
Such persons before contemplating
_ .
should reflect that a sound mind and "ody are
the most necessary requisites to promote connu
bial happiness. Indeed without these, the jour
ney through life heroines a weary pilgrimage,
the prospec.t 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 performed by Dr.
Johnston, witnessed by the Reporters of the pa
pers, and many other persons, notices of which
have appeared again and again before the pub
lic, is a sufficient guarantee to the afflicted.
N. B. There are so many ignorant and
worthless quacks advertising themselves as
Physicians, ruining the health of the already af
flicted. Dr. Johns'n drams it necessary to say to
those unacquainted with Ids reputation that his
Diplomas always hang in his office.
