A Perfec sbillititutte
For the Lancet. Leeches and Blisters
when the undersigned, after a long series of
laborious nod costly experiments, became fully
confirmed in his conviction, that the &Rapid,

present to the American public, vial:.
for Blood-letting, Leeches and Blisters, his
.mind was so. agitated that he could not sleep for
many nights. 'rho cause of his agitation was
the striking tact, that the manse, of ite operation
like that of the virus in vaccination, could not
be satisfactorialy explained upon any known
principle. How, in what way. it so effectually
subdued Inflammatory Disease and no others,
was at first wholly inexplicable—but, on further
experiment, it was proved that it equalizes the
finial 01 the body, the want of an equilibrium in
which, is the sole rause of inflammation. Such
is its potency, that like the vaccine matter,
requires merely oat adheres to the pointer a quill

When it takes the place of blisters, ointment

Croup, 'toothache, Pleurisy, &c.,its mode of
administration is two-fold. (See irectiin of dis

The discoverer has withheld it from the pub
lie till now, by the advice of a judicious physi
c lan and valuable friend whom he consulted—
a gentleman known and felt in the medical
world—and who desired to submit it to the test
0 fexperiment. After witnessing under his own
sertitiMaing rye, its signal triumph over both
acute and chronic inflammatory diseases, in re
peated and re-repeated trials, he offered $22.-
000 to come in as a special and equal partner in
I the Recipe for its manufacture, but the propo
sal was rejected.
The disuse of the lancet and blisters, is de
manded both by humanity by Immonity and
scionce. Is it nut a mistake, to suppose thud

will cease to boil. by dipping ow a purl of h—

mistake, to suppose that blisters and rubelacients
trill remove inflammation. when they virtually
superadd one inflammation to another '1 The
late Dr. B. Waterhouse, of Harvard Universi

of the most eminent, physicians in New England

blood (there never is too mach) that causes di

fluids and solids.
'rho special excellence of the Antiplilogistic
Salt, is that without the useless loss of blood

backed by doubtful certificates, (their chcif vir

all mslidies—a burlesque on common sense;
As the discoverer of this Salt, solemnly protests
against having it pieced in the categcry ol
frauds and impotitions. he has resolved that it
shall go forth to the world, like the pure gold
dollar, with no otherpasspore than its true val

it does this?—simply by restoring the lust bal
ance between the fluids and solidi.
The lbflowing different /arms which the un
balanced fluids assume, and many not hero men
;jotted that have more or less heat, pain or fever
(no others)are as perfectly cured by the Anti.
phlogistic Salt, as tire is extinguished by water.
