T H E Blood has hitherto been considered by Entpi- ricks and others, as the great regulator o fth e hu­ man system, and such is the devotedness o f the adher­ ents to that erroneous doctrine, that they content themselves with the simple possession of this falla­ cious opinion, without enquiring into the primary sources from whence Life, Health, and vigour eman­ ate, and viea versa, pain, sickness, disease and death. Not so with Dr. Hunt, whose extensive research and practical experience so eminently qualify him for the profession of which he has been one of the most use­ ful members, lie contends—and a moment’s reflec­ tion will convince any reasoning mind ofthe correct- ness of his views—that the stomach, liver, and the as­ sociated organs are the primary and great regulators of health, and that the blood in verv many instances is totally disconnected with the first and suceeding stages or disease, and that unless a medicine reaches the root ofthe disease, ihe superficial anodynes usually prescribed, serve but as foils to cover the ravages ol deep-rooted maladies. Under these convictions, al the expense of years of close application, the doctor has discovered a medicine whose searching powers are irresistible, and in prescribing, it is with a firm conviction of its being a radical cure in the various dis­ eases already enumerated, even i f applied in the most critical cases, but he does not pretend to ascribe to H U M T ’ S P I L L S a supernatural agency, although from positive proofs within the knowledge of hundreds, he is prepared to show, that when every other earthly remedy has fail­ ed, H U N T ’S PILLS have never been known to fail in effecting two very gratifying results, that of raising from the bed of sickness and disease those who have tested their efficacy, and thus amply rewarding Dr. Hunt for his long and anxious study to attain this per­ fection in the H e alixo A r t. B r . H u n t ’s C e l e b r a t e d F i l l s , For Consumption, Dysjmpsia, and Liver Complaint, SfC. A S the enjoyment of health depends on preserving the functions of the Stomaeh, Liver, Intestines and Lungs, in a healthy and vigorous state, through the operations o f which the body receive* ita growth, ita nutrition, its support, it can no longer be astonish­ ing that'w h e n tneae viscera are deranged, and cannot oerforin their proper functions, the whole system suf­ fers and becomes disordered. Knowing this to be a sound and demonstrated fact, in science and experi­ ence, D o ctor H u n t’s Systiji or Practice is in faithful accordance with it. He aims to keep the Stomach, Lungs and the liver, in vigorous and healthy action, •s the three great fountains of health and life.— For thi* purpose his pills are compounded of herbs, which strengthen and equalize the action of the heart, and give an impulse of strength to the arterial system, at the same time quicken the action ot the absorbent and discharging vessels; and as all the secretions are drawn from the blood, any morbid action which may have ta­ ken place is removed, ali obstructions are overcome, the blood is purified, and the bodv assumes a healthful state. These pills give tone to the stomach, increase the appetite, and eminently expel all acrid or morbid m atter through the execretory ducts into the passage of the bowels. In all cases of Consumption, Indiges­ tion or Dyspepsia, Billious Affections, or Liver Com­ plaints, Heartburn, Sourness or Acidity in the Stomach, Tightness at the Chest, Loss o f Appetite, Sick Head Ache, Pain in the Head, Back, Limbs and Side, Flatulency, Ty­ phus and Scarlet Fever, Putrid Sore Throat, Fever and Ague, or Intermitting Fevers, Gout, Rheumatism, Lumba- f o.

TO THE NERVOUS AND DEBILITATED. T O S H ! F I L L S - The powers of Evans’ Camomile Pills are such, that the palpitating heart, the tremulous hand, the dizzy eye, and the fluttering inind, vanish before their effects like noxous vapors before the benign influence of the morning sun. They have been long successfully used for the cure o f interiniltents, together with fever* of the irregulkr nervous kind, accompanied with visceral obstructions. This tonic medicine is for nerrons diseases, general debility, indigestion and its consequences, as want of appetite, distention of the stomach, acidity, unpleasant taste in the inouth, rumbling noise in the bowels, ner­ vous symptoms, languor, when the miml becomes irrita ble, desponding, thoughtful, melancholy and dejected .— Hypodiondriacism, consumption, dimness t f sight, deliri­ um, and all other nervous symptoms, these pills will produce a safe and permanent cure. Evans' Camomile Pills were first introduced in Amer- ca in 1635. EVANS’ FAMILY APERIENT PILLS Are purely vegetable, composed with the strictest pre­ cision o f science and o f a rt; they never produce nausea, and are warranted to cure the following diseases, which arise from impurities of the blood, viz:— Apoplexy, B il­ ious Affections, Coughs, Colds.

Mother—I love thy grave! lh e violet, with his blossom blue and mild, Waves o’er thy head—when shall it wave Above thy child I Tis a sweet flower-—yet must Its bright leaves to the coming tempest bow— Dear mother—’tis thine emblem—dust Is on thy brow ! And I could love to die— To leave un tasted life’s dark, bitter streams— By thee, as erst in childhood, lie And shutc thy dreams. And must I linger hero To stain the plumage of my sinless years, And mourn the hopes of childhood dene With bitter tears! Ay—must I linger hero, A lonely branch upon a blasted tree, Whose last frail leaf, untimely sere, Went down with thee! Oft from life’s withered bower, In still communion with the past I turn, And muse on thee, the only flower In memory’s urn. And, when the Evening pale Bows like a mourner on the dim, blue wave, I stray to hear the night-winds wail Around thy grave. Where is thy spirit flown?— I gaze above—thy look is imaged tliero— I listen—and thy gentle tone is on tlie nir. Oh come—whilst here I press My brow upon thy grave—nnd, in those mild And thrilling tones of tenderness, Bless, bless tby child! Yes, bless thy weeping child, And o’er thine urh—religion’s holiest shrine— Oh give his spirit undcfiled To blend with thine. and retail by ap2 C. C. CLUTE & Co. No. 142, State-st.

T h e old couple started? reddened, hurried s t r s r , m u tually wondering that tbey should e r e f hstvudrstMa* ed of doing any thing ao ridiculous, ’Kb© meiwhaiiC threw tyinself back in the carriage, and ooesniad U s mind with the plan of a magnificent a sylum for fortunate men of business. M eanwhile D a v id 8 w a s enjoyed hts nap. T h e carriage could not h ave gone above a m ile off two, when a pretty young girl cam e along with tripping pace, which ehowed precisely how her M . heart was dancing in her bosom. She turned —I V into the shelter o f the maple trees, and there found a young man asleep beside the spring! Blushing aa red as any rose, tbat she should have intruded into a gentlem an’s bed-chamber, she was about to m a k e h er escape on tiptoe. But, there was a peril nearer the sleeper. A monster o f a bee h ad been wandering o- verbead— buzz, buzz, buzz—kktw among the leaves, now flashing through the strips o f sunshine, s o # lost in lhe dark shade, till fipally be appearetN o he settling on the eyelid of David Sw a n . T h e ©ting the bee is sometimes deadly. As free h earted as she was innocent, tbe girl attacked the intruder with birr handkerchief, brushed him soundly, and drove him from beneath the m aple shade. How sweet a picture! T h is good deed accomplished, with quickened breath, and a deeper blush, she stole a glance a t the youthful stranger, for whom she had been battling with a dra- gon in tlie air. “ H e is handsome !” thought she, aod blushed red* deryet. How could it be that no dream o f bliss grew #* strong within him, that shattered by its v ery strength, it should part asunder a n d allow him to perceive the girl among its phantom s? W h y , at least, did m smile of welcome brighten upon his face? She was come, the maid whose soul, .according to tbe a id and beautiful idea, bad been severed from his own, aod whom, in all his vague, but passionate desires, be yearned to meet. H e r, only, could he love witli a perfect love— him, only, could she receive^ into the depths of h er heart—aud now her image was faintly blushing in the fountain, by his side ; it p— aw ay, its happy lustre would never gleam upon his life again. “ How soundly he s leep s !” m u ttered the girl. She departed, but did oot trip along the rqad so lightly as when she came. Now this girl’s father was a thriving country mer* chant in the neighborhood, and happened a t that idea* ticai lime, to be looking out for ju s t such a young m an as David S wan. H a d D avid formed Z w a y side acquaintance with the daughter, he would have be­ come th e father’s clerk , and all e l s e in n a t u r a l suc­ cession.
