TN the, month of December, 1858; the under
signed for the first * time offered for sale to
the public Dr. J. Bowe Dads Imperial Wine
Bitters, and in this short period they have given
such universal satisfaction to the many thou
sands ofpersons who have tried them that it is
now an established article. 'The amount of
bodily and mental misery arising simply from
a neglect of small complaints is surprising, and
it is therefore of the utmost importance that a
strict attention to the least and most trilling
bodily ailment should be had for diseases of
the body must invariably affect the mind.
The . subscribers now only ask a trial of
Dr. .T. Bovee Dods' Imperial Wineßittersl
From all who have not used them. We chal
lenge the world to produce their. equal.
. These Bitters for the cure of Weak Stomachs,
General Debility, and for Purifying and Em
riching the Blood, are absolutely unsurpassed
by:any-other remedy on earth. To be assured
of this, it is only necessary to make the trial.
The Wine itself is of a very superior quality,
being about one-third stronger the other wines;
warming and invigorating the, whole system
..from the head to the feet. As these bitters are
tonic and alterative in their character, so they
strengthen and invigorate the whole system
and give a fine tone and healthy action to all
its parts, by equalizing the . circulation, re
moving obstruetiomi, and producing a general
warmth. They are also excellent for inseams
and Weakness , peculair to. Females , where a
tonic is required to strengthen and brace the sys
tem. No lady, who is subject to lassitude and
faintness, should' be without them, as,they are
revivifying in their action.
These Bitters willmot only cure, but prevent
disease, and in this respect are doubly valua
ble to the.person who may use there.
For incipient Consumption.
Weak Lungs, Indigestion, Dyspepsia, Diseases
of the Nervous System, Paralysis, Piles,
. .
For Sore Throat, so common among the
Clergy, they are, truly valuable.
For the aged and infirm, and for persons of
a weak constitution—for Ministers of the' Gos
pel, Lawyers; and all public speakers—for
Book=Keepers, Tailors, Seamstresses,Students,
Artists, and all persons leading a sedentary
life, they will prove truly beneficial.
As a Beverage; they are wholesome, inno
cent, and delicious to the taste. They produce
all the exhilarating effects of Brandy or Wine,
Without intoxicating; and are a valuable rem
edy for persons addicted to the use of exces
sive strong drink, and who wish to refrain
from it. They are pure and entirely free from
the poisons contained in the adulterated Wines
and Liquors with which the country Is flooded.
These Bitters not only cure, butpreoent Dis
ease, and should be used by all who live in a
country where the zoter'l.4'^had,.-or—where
• ~...4r, l are prevalent. Being en
. and harmless, they may be giv
en freely to Children and Infants with im
Physicians, Clergymen, and tetimerance ad
as . an act of humanity; should assist
in spreading these truly valuable Bitters over
the land, and thereby essentially aid in ban=
ishing Drunkenness and Disease.
In all affections of the Head, slick Heatlathe, or
Nervous Headache, Dr. Dada' Imperial Wine
Bitters will be found to be most salutary and
efficacious. —.__..
The many certificates which have been tou
red us, and the lettere which we are daily
eiving, are conclusive proof that among the
men these Bitters have given a satisfaction
'eh no others have ever done before. No
)man in the land should be without them,
' those who once use them will not fail to
a supply.

would be his—had he not taken to drink
and gambling, and finally forged the
name of his employer, for which he was
given a home in Sing Sing. When he

"Can you tie a knot for me? ,

"I, don't know" was the response,

drove, up, to whom the case was submitt
"It depends on the sort of knot which
he wished tied," was the decision.
"I want a 'knot tied in my horse's tail
to keep it out of the snow !" shouted the
wicked wag, as he drove rapidly away,
fearing lest the ministers in his profane
wrath, should "fall from grace." At a
safe distance he "slowed," and heard the

Mary, of Cambridge, whose betrothal by
the Duke of Newcastle has beerr an. ,
nortneed, is a very comely personage;
bat very stout—so 'stoat, in ibct; that she
finds crinoline entirely superfluous ; ex
cept around the bottom of her skirt
and it is said that it has been necessary
of late, _to enlarge the door of her car
riage. A marriage was proposed be
tween her and Victor Emmanuel ; and
he was delighted at the prospect of a
connection with . the royal family of
England, through the owner of so char . 1

To Lot—There are more things "to
let" than are placarded. Hearts are to
let every day ; old hearts, yonvig hearts,
stricken hearts—all empty;• all to let.
There are heads . to let; to any new
thing, to isms, ologies and. its ; heads
without a tenant.
There are hands to let. 114ds plump
and fair ; -hands loan and brown.. These

There are consciences to let ;,elastic,
accommodating, caoutchouc ; at 5 per
cent. a month, sixty per cent. a year.—
To let on bond and mortgage, and a
pound of flesh.
And so it goes, from sods to souls ; al
most everything to let with its price ;
everything in the' market "but griefs.—
They are never quoted, never at a pre- .
minim, never "to let."
