SAM. G. WHITTAKER,
And all Diseases of the Lungs and Throat,
CURABLE BY INHALATION.
Which conveys the remedies to the cavities in
the lungs through the air passages, and coming
in direct contact with the disease, neutralizes
the tubercular matter, allays the cough, causes
a free and easy expectoration, heals the lungs,
purifies the blood, imparts renewed vitality to the
nervous system, giving that tone and energy so I
indispensable tor the restoration of henith. To
he able to state confidently that Consumption is
curable by inhalation, is to me a source of anal
lo) ed pleasure. It is as much under the cin
trol of medical treatment us any other formid
able discus° ; ninety out of every hundred ca
ses ran be cured in the first stages, and fifty per
cent. in the second ; but in the third stage it is
impossible to save more then five per cent., for
the Lungs are so eat np by the disease as to bid
defiance to medical skill. liven, however, in the
last stages, Inhalation Okada extraordinary re
lief to the suffering attending this fearful scourge
which annually destroys ninety-five thousand
persons in the Culted States alone ; and a cor
rect calculation shows that of the present popu
lation of the earth, eighty millions are destined
to fill the Consumptive's graves.
Truly the quiver of death has no arrow so fa
tal as Consumption. In all ages it has been the
great enemy of life, for it spares neither age nor
sex, but sweeps off alike the brave, the beauti
thl, the graceful and the gifted. By the help of
that Supreme Being from whom cometh every
good and perfect gift, I am enabled to offer to
the afflicted a permanent and speedy cure in
Consumption. The first cause of tubercles is
from Impure blood, and the immediate ellhot pro
duced by their deposition in the lungs is to pre
vent the free admission of air into the air cells,
which causes a weakened vitality through the
satire system. Then surely it is more rational
to expect greater good from medicines entering
the cavities of the lungs than those administered
through the stomach ; the patient will always
find tho lungs free and the breathing easy, after
luhfiling remedies. Thus, Inhalation is a local
remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally and
with more power and certainty than remetlias
administered by the stomach. Ti, prove the pow
erful and direct influence of this mode of admin.
istrtition, chloroform inhaled will entirely de
stroy sensibility in a few minutes, paralyzing
the entire nervous system, so that a limb fluty he
amputated without the slightest pain ; inhaling
the ordinary burning gas will destroy life its a
The inhuhttion of ammonia will rouse the sys
tem when fainting or apparently dead. The o
dor of many of the medicines is perceptible in ,
the skin a few minutes after being inhaled, and
may be immediately detected in the blood. A
convincing proof of the constitutional effects of
inhalation, is the fact that sickness is always pro •
uueed by breathing foul air—is not this poultice
evidence that proper remedies, carefully prepar
ed and judiciously administered thro' tbo lunge
should produce the happiest *emits Z During
eighteen years' practice, many thousands suffer
ing from diseases of die lungs and throat, have
hero under my care, and I have einem.' many
remarkable cures, even after the suttercrs had
teen prononneed in tbo last stages, which telly
satisfies me that consumption is no longer a
disease. My treatment of consumption is
original, and founded on long experience and a
thorough investigation. My perfect acquaintance
with the nature of tubercles, &c., enables me to
distinguish, readily, ill° various forms of disease
that simulate consitinplion, and apply the proper
remedies, rarely being mistaken even in a single
ease. This familiarity, in connection with car-
Min pathological mid microscopic discoveries en
able' me to relieve the lungs from the edicts of I
contracted chests, to eularga the chest, purify
the blood, import to it renewed vitality, giving
energy and tone to the entire system.
Medicines with full directions sent to any part
of the United States and Comities by 'Patients
communienting their symptom by letter. But
the cure would be mum certain if the patient
should pay me n visit, which mould give MO un
opportunity to examine the lungs and enable nut
to prescribe with much greater certainty, and
then the cure could he effected without my see
ing the patient again.

all their menus of cure. The medicines are
pleasant without odor, causing no sickness and

years of practice, I have rescued from the is.

human diseases causes so destructive a drain
upon the velum, drawing ire thousands of vic

untimely grave. It destroys the Nervous sys

unfortunate victims of Self-Abuse that a speedy

the abandonment of ruinous practices my pa

The afflicted are cautioned against the use of
Patent Medicines, for there are so many ingeni
ous snares in the columns of the public prim,'
to catch and rob the unwary sufferers that mil
lions have their constitutions ruined by the vile
compounds of quack doctors, or the equally poi
sonous ncstrums vended as "Patent Medicines."
I have carefully analyzed many of the so-called
Patent Medicines and find that nearly all of
them contain Corrosive Subtheme, which is one
of the strongest prepdrations of mercury and a
deadly poison, which instead of curing the
ease disables the system for life.
Three-fourths of the patent medicines now in
use are put up by unprincipled and ignorant per

great point in the treatment of all It moot mat,
dies is to get et the disease in the direct milli
ner, All medicines are estimated by their tui
tion ul on the t rgan requiring relief. This is
the important fact upon which Inhalation is be-,
s ed. If the stomach is diseased • we take
medicine directly into the stomach. If the lungs
are diseased, breathe or inhale medicated va
pors directly into the lungs. Medicines are the
antidotes to diocese and should be applied to
the very seat of disease. Inhalation is the op- I
plication of this principle to the treatment of
the lungs, fur it gives us direct access to those . ,
intricate air cells and tubes which lie out of
reach of every other means of administering
medicines. Um reason that Consumption, and
other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore re
sisted all treatment has heels because they had
never been approached m a direct manner by
medicine. They were intended to act upon the
lungs and yet were applied to the stomach.—
Their stet'et was in tended to be local, and yet,
they were so administered that they should not I
act constistutionally, expending immediate and
principal action upon the unuttending stomach,
whilst the that ulcers within the lungs were un
molested. Inhalation brings the medicine in
direct contact with the disease, without the
disadvantage of any violent action. Its appli
cation is simple, that it can bo employed by the
youngest intent or feeblest invalid. It does net
derange the stomach, or interfere in the least de
gree with the strength, comfort, or business of ,

The revolt may, and ninny people think
it will, spread throughout the whole of
British India and enlist in the service of
the revolters the whole of the neighboring
native princes. Should this unfortunate
ly prove to be the case, England will be
plunged into war with (including China)
nearly one half the human race. This is
certainly an extreme case, but no mortal
foresight can pronounce that it is impos•
sible." The crisis is evidently critical,
and we cannot be surprised at the intense
anxiety which exists upon the subject in
England. Delhi. too, which .vas at first
described of as a weak place, is now sp.
ken of by the London Times as a "sec
ond Sevastopol," and it is observed fur
ther that the English soldiers will be oppo
sed to a well trained army, men whose
chosen pursuit is fighting, who have been
disciplined by English commanders, who
have proved their prowess in many a hard
fought field side by side with English
coinrades, but n•ho are now actuated by a
deadly hatred of British officers sad Brit.

fighting for their country, and as revolted
troops they are, every one of them fight

From the various commentarie, which

experiment of touching one's tongue to the

tremely vague and indefinite idea of the
nature of this strange potent “essenco."
We propose to enlighten them, to the end
that they and their readers will have a
good reason to adopt the "tasty not" adage
in relation to this and similar essences.

Tho adulteration of alcohol, or the inanu

to the producer os it is killing to the cos.

arsenic or corrosive sublimate, added to a
barrel of rum, brandy, gin or whiskey, will
double its commercial value, that is, it will
enable the dealer to add to it a barrel of

The paragraph above quoted represents
the "essence of brandy," which killed
the Toronto manufacturer, to be in its
properties "very nearly allied to prussic
acid." It is indeed so. It is as nearly
allied to prussic acid as it is to itself. The
same experiment has been tried many
times before, and with exactly the same
result. Many chemists, physicians and
apothecaries hare accidentally tasted the
contents of a bottle containing prussic acid
