Which conveys the remedies tothe 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 she blood, imparts renewed vitality to the 'nervous system, giving that tone and energy so indispensable tor the restoration of health. To be able to state confidently that Consumption is curable by inhalation. is to men source armlet toyed plessure. It is as much under the con trol of medical treatment as any other formid able dim.° ; ninety out of every hundred ca ses can be cured in the first stages, and fifty per cent in the second ; hut in the third stage it is impossible to save more than five per cent., for the Longs are so cut up by the disease as to bid defiance to medical Mill. Even, however, in the last stages, Inhalation affords extraordinary re the suffering attending this fearful scourge which annually destroys ninety-live thousand persons inn the United States alone ; and a cor rect en'eulation 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 nges it has been the great enemy of life, for it spares neither ngo nor sex, but sweeps all alike the brave, the beauti ful, the graceful and the gifted. By the help of that Supreme Being from whorls cometh every good .d perfect gilt, I am enabled to offer to the afflicted a pethitinent and speedy cure in Consumption. Tire first cause of tubercles is from impure blood, and the immediate afibet 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 entire system. Then surely it is more rational to expect greater good from medicines entering the cavities of the lungs than those administered through the stonincli ; the patient will always find the lungs free and the breathing easy, after Inhaling remedies. Thus, Inhalation is a local remedy, nevertheless it acts constitutionally and with more pawet' and certainty than rentecli.s administered by the stomach. To prove the pow erful nud direct Milne nee of this mode of admin- Istrution, chloroform inhaled will entirely de stroy sensibility in n few minutes, paralyzing the entire nervous system, so that II limb may be amputated without the slightest pain; inhaling the ordinary burning gas Will destroy life in a few hours. The inhalation of ammonia Will rouse the sys tem when fainting or apparently dead. The o dor of many of the medicines is perco ptible in the skin a few minutes niter being inhaled, and msy he immediately detected in the blood. A convincing proof of the constitutional efforts of Inhalation, is the fact that sickness is always pro• duced by breathing foul air—is not this positive evidence that proper remedies, carefully prepar ed and judiciously administered thin' the Mints should produce filo happiest results 7 During eighteen years' practice, many thoumnds suffer ing from diseases of the lungs and doted, have been under my Care, and I htlVO ellhuted marry remarkable curer, even after the sufferers bad been pronounced in the last stages, width Italy satisfies ma that consumption is no longer a fa tal diocese. lily treatment of consumption is originel, and founded on long experience and a thorough investigation. My perfect acquaintance with the mauve of tube reles.h.e., enables nie to distinguish, readily, the various forms of disease 011.1 , 11110M0 consumption, and apply the proper remedies, rarely being mistaken even in a single case. This tiaunilinrity, in connection eith cer tain pathological mid microscopic discoveries en ables me to relieve the lungs from the effects of contracted chests, to enlarge the chest, purity the blood, impart 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 Canadas by patients communicating their symptoms by letter. But the cure would be more certain if the patient should pay me n visit, which would give me un opportunity to examine the lungs and enable me to prescribe with much grantee certainty, and then the cure could be effected without my see ing the patient nguin.

During twenty years of practice, I have rescued from the jaws of Death many thousands, who, in rho last sta ges of the above mentioced diseases load been given top by their physicians to die, which war rants me is promising to the afflicted, who may place themselves under my care, a perfect and most speedy cure.

Asa permanent cure is scarcely ever effectual, a majority of the eaten billing in to the hands of incompetent persons, who not only fail to cure the diseases bet ruin the con stitution, filling the system with mercury, which with the disease, hastens the sufferer into a ra pid Consumption. But should the disease and the treatment not cause death speedily and tile victim marries, the disease is entailed npon the children, who are born with feeble constitutions, and the current of life corrupted by a virus which betrays itself in Scrofula, 'Letter, Ulcers, Eruptions. and oth er affections of the skin. Eyes, Throat and Lungs, entailing upon them a brief existence of suffering and consigning thetn to an early grave. Sall-abuse is another formidable enemy to health, for nothing else in the dread catalogue of hutnatt diseases causes so destructive a drain upon the system, drawing its thousands of vic tims through a few years of suffering down to au untimely grave. It destroys the Nervous sys tem, rapidly wastes away the energies of lite, causes mental deraugement, prevents the proper development of the system, disqualifies Ibr mar- riage, society, business, and all earthly happi ness, and leaves the sufferer wrecked in body and mind, predisposed to consumption and a train of evils more to be dreaded than death It self. With the fullest confidence I assure the unfortunate victims of Self-Abuse flint a speedy and permanent cure can he effected, and with the abandonment of ruinous practices my pa tients-can be restored to robust, viworous health. The afflicted are cautioned against the use of Patent Medicines, for there are so many ingeni ous snares in the columns of the public prints to catch and rob the unwary sufferers that mil lions have their constitutions ruined by the vile compounds of quack doctsrs, or the equally ' sonous ncstrums vended as "Patent ,Medicines."

The great point in the treatment of all human melo dies is to get at the disease in the direct man ner. All medicines aro estimated by their ac tion upon the t man requiring relief. Tlik is the important fact open which fnhalation is ha 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 disease and should he applied to the very seat of disease. Inhalation is the ap plication of this principle to the treatment of the Mugs, for it gives us direct access to those intricate air cells and tubes whirl, lie out of reach of every other means of administering medicines. The reason that Consumption, 1111,1 other diseases of the lungs, have heretofore re sisted all treatment has been because they had never been approached to a direct manner lay medicine.' They were intended to Oct upon the lungs and yet were epplied to the stomach.— Their notion was intended to be load, and yet, they wore so administered that they should not act constistutionally, expending immediate and principal action upon the unotlending stomach, whilst the foul ulcers within the lungs were un molested. Inhalation brings the medicine its direct contact with tho disease, without the disadvantage of any violent action. Its appli cation is simple, that it can be employed by the youngest intent or feeblest invalid. It does not derange the stomach, or in terNro in the least de gree with the strength, comthrt, or business of the patient.

NICHOLAS, President of the Company No. 70 Wall Street. Witt. BREWSTER, Published by Request. Answer to Nesbet's Book. in reading the work put out by Mr. William Nesbit, there is so touch to claim attention, that I scarcely know where to begin to answer his tirade and misrepro. sentation, of the country . that I claim ns my home. I will begin with his descrip tion of the face o( the country. Page 23, he says the face is one magnificent unstop, and wishes to convey the idea that the whole country is inundated. Now, Mr. Nesbit knows very well this is not a true statement. I acknowledge that there are swamps on the coast as there are on our southern coasts, but I do not adroit that the coast of Liberia is tiny more subject to these than our country, the swamps do not extend near as far interior as the swamps do in the southern part of Amer ica. Those swamps do hot extend more than four miles beck, and after leaving the sea that distance, you leave all Mangroves and Dragon Blood. Mr. Nesbit knew this, for he, with myself, travelled nearly one entire day in the vicinity of New Yolk settlement, in Liberia, and we in that day's travel, neither saw Mangrove nor Dragon Blood ; what is true concern ing that location is true of all the country alter going about lour utiles inland. Ile says that the land is 'very fertile, but does not produce any timber. In this, Mr. Nesbit has made a wrong statement, for, instead of it not producing any timber, I do afoot positively assert that in those din. trims, where the natives have not de. stroyed it the best timber that I ever saw grows in great abundance. I myself have measured a tree that uninsured a hundred A CARD TO TILE LADIES. I and two feet in circumference. There DR.

I have been to them and have stood on them, and have viewed the coun try for many miles from them. He (Mr. Nesbit), must have made up his opinion of Liberia while his brain was excited by the fever, nod while a hill seemed to him to be the great Kong Nlountain. I tun not able to state how far our coun try extends into the interior, but one thing I am sure of, that wo can go as far inland as we wish. To prove this, Mr. titeys has formed a .w settlement sqme fifty or six ty miles back from Monrovia. Whether this upper country belongs to Liberia or not, proves, that we have access to it, which is ell that we wish, and proves Mr. Nesbit in the wrong. That there Is not, nor never has been, five acres cleared by any one man, is too absurd for MO to nonce. Everybody will contradict this that has been to Liberia; I might name many that have five, ten or twenty acres cleared and planted. I wish to call particular attention to the ninth chapter of Mr. Nesbit's book, where he desires to make the impression that when once in Liberia you aro forever shut up, and all possibility of getting a Way is cut off. This is untrue, and a libel upon our laws and our free institutions. That we have a law regulating passports is true, and whatmation that has it not 1 He says that ail ship masters, dic., aro forbidden to take away any one without a passport —this is true—but, what does all this amount tot Simply this, to prevent fraud front being practised by those wishing to cense away. Nesbit says, that if any ono chooses to object to an applicant getting a passport it cannot be had ; but he does not tell us on what conditions those objec tions could be made effectual. Now, the truth is, that we have but one law on this matter and that is, that any individual wishing to leave Liberia must be free from debt, and it this is the case there is no one in all Africa that could prevent his pass.

Mr. Nesbit could not see where he or she is of tastes or woman's age, can leave at will, and go where they please. Nearly all have natives as helps in their families, and this is as it should be ; but I confess that black people ere no better than white people, as many, when they Inive power, abuse it, and so it is with some in • Liberia; wicked persons there do abuse th 3 native youths. But why does Mr. Nesbit condemn the whole country and ac cuse all as slave-holders, because a few alms their power? There is no fairness in the man, but he seems willing to say or do anything to carry his point., Mr. Nesbit next attacks the missiona ries, and wishes all to look upon them as a set of swindlers, traders, and liars; he else represents them as rumsellers. Now I think it hardly necssary to notice this, as I feel assured that there are none who believe those assertions, unless it is some ono who has no more soul than is-hat he (Nesbit) has, and if this is all the impres sion he has made, it is scarcely worth an- steering. He further says that the missionaries 1 , have dune nothing. I am free to admit that they have not done as much as they or their friends would like them to have done. But why did nut Mr. Nesbit give th4true cause Why there was not more done amongst the' natives ? 1 do not pre tend to say that the ministers in Africa are a better net of men than preachers are in other lands, but I will say that they will compare favorably wtth any other part of the world for uprightness of deportment, zeal and piety; but the real cause why there seems to be but little doing amongst the natives of Africa is, that they are per haps of all people the most superstitious . 'Choy have their religious rites unto which they adhere with the utmost tenacity. It is not only a wicked heart against which the missionary has to contend; but all the evil I practices and inventions that wicked men could devise for thousands of years. The Devil Bush is one of those things against which the missionary has to contend ; their system of gree-grees is another—polygamy issmother. Now if Mr. Nesbit had known anything about these things he would come to the same conclusion that I have come to viz: theenissionaries have done wonders. When' he (Nesbit) says that there are not twenty natives who aro civilized and converted in all the republic, he forgot the settlement of New Georgia, where there are over fifty civilized natives in that one place. lam very sure, if it were possible for me to pass round and take account of all in the republic, I should find many more—yes, more than twenty, more than forty. In my charge of last year I left five native members, who were as good mem bers as any other, but the truth is, that at . - ' ter the native is civilized he becomes a Li. berian, and a stranger does not know him from the rest of the Liberian citizens, tt ' less peisonally acquainted. As regards rum.selling among the mis sionaries, I do no know of anything of the kind, and I question very much if Mr . Nesbit did, but to the contrary I do know that the body to which I belong are, to a the money was to be made, although he bought his goods at Monrovia and took them to Marshall, and• sold them at one hundred per cent., and yet lie cannot see how there was anything to be made on buying palm oil—quite short-sighted Although Mr. Nesbit prophesies the speedy downfall of our little republic, she has not fallen yet, nor is there any likeli• hood that she will, for she is steadily ad vancing. He says this will occur when emigration shall atop, but when is that to be ? It does not look much like stopping ns yet, then there are, every six months, more emigrants offered than can be taken over. Perhaps he supposed that the pub licat;on of his pamphlet would stop it at once, but this is only to some extent in Pennsylvania; however, I hope that, even in this part of the world, the people may see right sometimes, and move to Liberia, there to help to build up s great nation. • Concerning native customs and scanners in chapter sixteenth, I think that everybo dy will allow mu to know more than Mr. N., as his stay was only four months, and a portion of time he was sick, and 1 was there nearly four years, and have been more or less amongst them while in Africa. Their customs are very different from those of the Liberians; they have their own taws—where their laws do not conflict with ours—and I ask is this strange ? Surely not. Did not the Uni ted States allow the Indiana the same, and why does not Mr. Nesbit rally, out against thew for this folly, if folly it be? No, this is not the object, he wishes to make Liberia look small and contemptible, but I think ho has failed in this• He says that it is a common thing to see the natives naked. Now, I question whether he ever saw a grown native entirely naked—if he has tie sa•v snore than I ever did ; although it is quite common, when you visit their villa• gea, to see their children, up to the age of ten or twelve years, running mike* but the men and women aro as susceptible of shame as Mr. N. or any other person. liow Mr. N. saw so much more than any other person that ever was in Africa I cannot conceive. He is not the first that got a way from that country, and I suppose oth ers have been as truthful, and yet strange to say, he saw more, heard more and learn• VOL. XXII. NO. 41. ed more thitn any other one man. Can it be that he is the only honest man that ev er came from Liberia ? Mr. Nesbit should have taken more pains to have informed I imself of the na tives and the Liberians, before writing and giving to the world for truth that which he knew nothingabout, lle asserts that such of the natives as are guilty of making a witch must die. This was once the law ; but it is not practiced now in or about Li beria. Our influence has put this abomi nable practice down r and if it is done at all l it must be done very secretly. Instead of the natives having no regard for our laws, they have the utmost respect and fear of offending us, and are also very careful to avoid all appearance of disobedience. It is a frequent occurrence for them to refer their mutters of dispute to our magistrates, and feel that whatever may be the decision that it is right, and they are satisfied. Ay it regards the fourteenth chapter, it is something that will do no harm, and I shall not consume time to give it much notice. T would, however, say that the whole affair is an attempt at ridicule, and has but little truth in it. As for Commo dores, Lieutenants, Boatswains, these are titles altogether unknown in relation to the Liberian government Schooner Lark. It has its captain, mates and purser, and perhaps two or three midshipmen. I as sert that our military operations are con ducted with as much propriety as any other people, although we may not know .much about military tacties. Our contpa nies' operations have been witnessed by naval officers both of the British and the American squadron, and they have been universally praised for their skill as sol i diem. I am quite certain that those na tives who have been hostile, have long . since came to the conclusion that the Li berians understood their business ; and if r Mr. Nesbit was to try their skill, I am in dined to believe that he too would come 3 to the same conclusion. I am now done with Ur. Nesbit, and I best chance to know the truth in the mat ter—he in lour months or myself in four years. As to veracity, I claim at least to be as good as he, and think that when I was a citizen of this State I stood as fair. Unless there is something in the climate of Liberia that degetierates the character of every one that goes there, I yet would be considered truthful. Now the facts in the case as it regards Mr. Nesbit is about this : Ile went to Liberia at an expense perhaps, of some two or three hundred dollars, and did not like the country. But I why, if he did not like it, did he not come away with honor and not misrepresent everything that he saw? Well, he was out of pocket and wished to make it good and conferring with NI. R. Delany, a most inveterate hater of colonization and all its doings, was advised to publish this book, and, of course, what Mr. Nesbit did not think of Mr. Delany could. This thing was thus concocted and set afloat, for the purpose of making Mr. Nesbit's pocket whole again. I give to the world this brief sketch, and have only further to say that all who read it may depend on it for truth ; although it is plain and simple, yet it may be relied on by all, for it is not my object to deceive. I have no interest in this land—Liberia is my home, and I expect to end my days in it. I cannot think that it is for the best interests of Liberia to misrepresent things or to give them false colors. The world only knows us and knows from whence we came. The people of this country have sense enough to know how much to expect from us in the short time we have been in existence. No one, who has the right use of his reason, expects .that we should be now as far advanced as the United States. We have been an inde petdent government but ten years and have had everything to contend against yet with all the cliff:collies, we have hon orably sustained ourselves, and are grow. ing into importance as fast as any reasona ble man could expect. It was never ex peeled by the friends of Liberia that it would grew into manhood in a day or a year; but her growth has been steady and sure, with as little mortality as any other country ever was settled with.—Four years its Liberia by Rev. Samuel Ril -1 hams. WORKINO ON SUNDAY.—An exchange says that a few Sundays since, a preacher in one of the rural districts near Augusta, Me., seeing that none but females were present at the church service, rose and re. marked that all the men were evidently in the fields taking care of their hay ; be tho't it their duty to do so, and his to go and help them. So he dismissed the ladies with a benediction, and went forth among his friends to show them his countenance and help their operations by the labors of his hands.
