C HOLERA—Nothing affords more general security against tin* CHOLERA than uheulthy condition ofthe Organs of Digestion j but these ure often known to creep into disorder so gradually ami insidiously, that the patient hardly knows that lie is the subject of il. It cannot be suid that these organs are in health when Ihe bowels are costive or irregular, the evacuations dark or unnatural in color,and the tongue foul aud loaded iu tlie morning. These always denote derangement of the organs of digestion, and are al­ ways seen together, but it often happens that the individual hits never noticed them until they have been pointed out by his physician as the cause of some other subject of complaint. This subject is worthy of great attention, for, ia those per sons who are not depressed by intemperance, the disordered condition of the organs of digestion constitutes a more gene­ ral cause of Cholera than any other. At this time, therefore, it is especially advised that every one should pay a due regard to tlu* regularity of the bowels, thc color ofthe evacuations, uiul the state of the. tongue, und, if they aresuch as Juus beeu already described,depend upon it he is lar more OPEN TO AN ATTAUlv OF CHOLERA than he is aware of, and it therefore becomes his duty to re­ move these disordered symptoms. Under sucn circumstances the object is, first, to evacuate the bowels, and then support their natural and healthy ac­ tion. But much depends on the menus chosen: a rough, drastic purgative, as several of tlie. medicines extensively presented to the public nre known to he, is not onlv impro­ per, but even dangerous: n purgative may indeed bo occa­ sionally required, but. one of ti mild and friendly, though cleansing anti purifying, nature: whilst something combining atonic or strengthening, with a mild aperient or regulating effect—oue which, whilst it carries off thc vitiated secretions of the Liver, Kidnies. fee., will restore and preserve the tone and vigor of the Digestive Urguns aiul Nervous System, thus enabling the constitution to resist contagious and all other diseases, is here most particularly called for. Such a medi cine, and it is stated in the fullest conviction of its truth, is DR. RALPH'S U n i v e r s a l D o m e s t i c V k u k t a b l k P i l l s . But, whoever, iu addition to a temperate and regular mode of living, aims at the above healthy standard is in no danger of TAKING TUE UHOLERA, and cannot take it. £3^ During the prevalence of this epidemic in 1832-’4, there was not a single individual attacked wilh this disease in the eity of New York, who followed these direetions.^jSPJ DR. RALPH'S PILLS are sold in Boxesat25 c e n t s , wilh very full directions on the prevention und cure of every dis­ ease, by all the principal druggists. No one should be with­ out them.

I GNOUANCE OF T U P MEDICAL COUN­ CIL—'PO THE BOARD OF HEALTH—PRECAU­ TIONARY MEASURES AGAINST AN ATTACK OF CHOLERA—PREVENTIVES—'TREATMENT.—'Tho Sa­ nitary Committee ofthe Board of Health of this city have requested the Medical Council to inukea report on tiie sull­ ied of Cholera. 'Phis report has appeared in the city press, and to some of ils suggestions and logic I wish to call the attention ofthe public. It makes one suggestion relative to the proper course to be pursued in the premonitory stage of cholera—that is, after the commencement ofdinrrhmji, or a relaxed condition ofthe bowels. 1 will not dispute the point whether the diarrhma is or is not the actual commencement of the Cholera, or whether it is only a premonitory symptom of an attack. The Medical Council, however, regard it in the latter character. Hut with regard to the treatment sug­ gested by them I feel it my duty, more particularly, to speak plainly*. Tlu* report says: “With regard to tlie'trontinent of Cholera, it may be ob­ served that, as a general rule, the disease does not attack so suddenly ns to preclude the possibility of calling in timely medical assistance. A relaxed state ofthe bowels for a longer or shorter period gives notice of its approeh. In nil cases, thereiore, when any disorder of tliis kind exists, common prudence will suggest the necessity of resorting to medical aid. If this be done in season, the disease may generally be promptly arrested. When professional aid cannot be imme diately obtained, and where simple rehLxation of the bowels exists, 20 or 25 drops of laudanum may be taken—to be re­ peated in one or two hours, according to circumstimccs. For young persons and children, the dose must be reduced ac­ cording to the age ;at the age often years, eight drops: at the age of two years, two or three drops.” My respect for the character and standing which the three gentlemen which compose the Medical Council, aiul who prepared thc report from which tlio above is an extract, sis well as a total absence of sill inclination on my part to charge them with an act of inhumanity or cruelly in their profes­ sional conduct, will notallow me to impute to them disho­ nesty in the advice which they have thought proper to give the public, whose lives in a great measure may depend upon the degree of confidence they place in the suggestions con­ tained in the above extract. But from long experience in the treatment of disease, which, by whatever name it may be called, is in reality but a unit, and tho immediate cause of weieh, in ninety-nine cases out ofa hundrod, is an impurity of tiik Bi.oop,l lee! it n duly 1 owe to the public, to huma­ nity, to denounce in language as strong sis a proper courtesy to those whoso opinions I regard as dangerous will justify, the use of opium in any form, to check the relaxed condi­ tion of tl;e bowels, in the incipient or any other stage of tliat terrible malady, called the cholera, or any other disease inci­ dent to man. Reason for a moment, reader? Thc cause of cholera is already in thc system when the relaxed condition of tlie bowels commences, 'l’he diarrhea, whether it be regarded as a premonitory symptom of speedy attack, or whether it is the actual commencement of the disease itself, is only n manifestation that N a t u r e has commenced her efforts to remove from the system tlie causes of the disease. Shu, in accordance with that law ol’our being which tends to ourjire servation, sols herself to work to free the system from that morbid matter which it has imbibed from* some cause or, other, which in tho case of cholera is not as yet fully under- *51004. Should medical science check, retard this operation of Na­ ture, or aid it by those appropriate remedies which aro most conducive to that end? Should we give opiates, soporifics, the known effects of which are to lessen or destroy the na­ tural action and motion ofthe living fiber, tho natural peris­ taltic motion of tlio intestinal canal, so necessary to carry\ off from the body tho morbid matter which is tho cause of dis­ ease ? 'J’he least particle ol common sense is all that is necessary to enable all to reply to these interrogatories. 'J’o check the relaxed state of the bowels, uuder circumstances like these, is a miserable practice, nnd shows conclusively the extreme ignorance of thoso who advise it. AU medical men know that opium diminishes all the secretions aud ex­ cretions of the system. The evacuations, after taking opium are clay-colored^ owing to au almost total suspension ofthe biliary secretion. It diminishes the sensibility of the stomach and bowels, which leads to a suspension, partial or total, of all the regular actions ofthe body. Thus it leads to lock up in the system all the morbid humors, thc presence of which causes disease, and thc removal of which would restore health. If tlie efforts of Nature to remove disease cause in­ creased action in thc excretory organs, and the blood is gcl­ ing rid of its impurities, by throwing them into the intestinal canal, preparatory to their final exit from the system, opium checks all these operations, and retains the cause of death in the system. Can a practice exist more suicidal than this? That a body ofleamed men, having all thc advantages of medical educa­ tion, familiar with the effects of medicine, who ought at least to have a correct knowledge of the cause of disease, should make such suggestions to^their fellow citizens on any occa­ sion of so much importance, affords another evidence ofthe prevailing ignorance and charlatanry that still exists in the practice of medicine. Opium is the quack’s sheet anchor. Itentersinto the com­ position ofthe various syrups, balsams, elixirs, cough drops and most of the other cliariatau remedies for the cure of dis­ ease. It blunts the susceptibility lo impressions of pain or danger—it awakens the fancy or* imagination that health is improving—it soothes to composure; but only that disease may the more firmly secure its hold, and more certainly ter­ minate in death. My object in thus controverting the fallacies of the Medical Counsel is, to guard the community against the inevitable evil consequences that would result from following their ad­ vice iu cases of cholera. During tho prevalence or proba­ ble approach of this fatal malady, I would advise all to aid Nature in all cases where she makes an effort to throw off disease. If relaxation of the bowels conics on, resort to l’UKCATIVE REMEDIES. Take U d o S O of IIRANPRETH’s B ills , and repeat it until a healthy condition ofthe stomach nnd bowels supervenes. One valuable suggestion is found in the Report of the Me­ dical Counsel. They sav “V iolent purgative medicines auk calculated to do * misc hief .” This is true. Avoid all mercurial purgatives, saline purgatives, and indeed all the drastic purgatives of the drug shops prescribed by doctors. Take the V egetable U niversal B ills of Dr. Brandrelh, which remove only the morbid humors ofthe system, and do uot debilitate and mid to thc grout prostration of the physi­ cal and vital powers of the body, which are so peculiarly in all eases of cholera. They are’ Nature’s aid in disease.— When she is too weak to accomplish her work, they perform it for her. Thc Medical Counsel suggest lhat great attention be paiil ‘o clean streets, sewers, lanes, und alleys. A11 “sources of filth and impurity,” such is their language,should be prompt­ ly removed by‘the public authorities; und every citizen should keep a watchful eye about his premises, “and tf his efforts ure inadequate lbr the removol of filth, he should cult upon the Board of health for aid/* AU this is right and proper; but how strange it is. ’ what ;i striking contrast there is between this suggestion and that which advises the people to lock up all the filth in their system hy taking laudanum ! The veins and arteries of tho living body, through which the blood of life flows, and Die great intestinal mim! through which the system is nourished, and all the superincumbent, useless matter filth or impurities, are thrown out of the system. Hurrying out the idea of the learned Medical Counsel, ia tliis one respect, at leiust, we would suggest that while the cholera exists among us, or threatens our people with an attack, that each citizen examine well “his own premises.” the condition of the svstcm, and if ho fears an attack of cho­ lera from too great an'accumulation oflilth or morbid matter, so that he is inadequate to effect a removal, that he calls, not upon the Board of Health, for aid and assistance, but at some place where D r . B randuktii ’ s V egetable P ills may be had. These will speedily remove the filth and impurities from the sewers and canals of his system, und restore him to health. Reader, is not this a common-sense criticism upon the uso of opium j l s advised in the report of which I speak? Not one ofthis Medical Counsel dare deny hut that the effects which I have attributed to opium do \most certainly follow its administration. It is painful to witness the promulgation of opinions so crude, so inconsistent with the well established laws of disease, and the method of removing it, and tluil too by men whose profession is that of medicine. rI he Public's servant, B.

No female who has rea­ son to suppose she is approaching that critical period, “the turn of life ” '■'hould ncgloct to take it, as it is acertain preventive for t uy of the numerous and horrible diseases to which females are subject at this time of life This period may be delayed several years by using this rnedicioe.X~ Nor is It less valuable tor those approaching womanhood. as it is calculated to assist natnre hy quickening the blood aud invigorating the system. Indeed, this medicine is in­ valuable for all the diseases to which w'omeo are subject It braces the whole system, renews permanently the natural energies—by removing the impurities of the body —notso farstiuiulatingthe system as to produce a subset quentrelaxation, which is the '\'seo/mos imedieincstaken for female weakness and disease, GREAT BLESSING TO MOTHERS and CHILDREN. Itis the safest and most effectual medicine for purifying the system, and relieving the sufferings attendant upon child birth ever discovered. It strengthens both the mo­ ther and child, prevents pain and disease, increases and enriches the food, those who have used it think it is in dispensable. Jt is highly useful both before and after confinement, as itprevcnts diseases attendant upon child birth—in Costiveness, Cramps,Piles.Swellingof the feet, Despondency, Heartburn, Vomiting, Pain in the Back and Loins, False Pains, Hemorrhage, and In regulating the secretions and equalizing thc circulation it has no equal. The great beauty of this medicine is, it is always safe, and the most delicate use itmost successfully, very few cases require any other medicine, in some a little Castor Oil cr Magnesia, is useful. Exercise in the open air, and light food with this medicine, will always ensure a safe and easy confinement. NOTICE TO TIIE LADIES—Those that imitate 1» Townsend’s Sarsaparilla, have invariably called thei stuff' agrcat Remedy for Females, «frc, <$*c, and have copie i our bilisand circulars which relates to the complaints o t women, word for word—other men who put up medicine, have, since the great svtcccss of Dr Townsend’s Fnrsapa rilla in complaints incident to females, recommended theirs, although previously they did not. A number of these mixtures,pills, fee, are injurious to females, se they aggravate disease,and undermine the constitution. SCROFULA CURED.—This certificate conclusively proves that this Sarsaparilla has perfect control over the most obslinatedisoases of the blood. Three persons cured in ono houseis unprecedented.

Lot it be remembered that these men aro Jlruggists end Pfiisicians, tully acquainted with all kindsof medicines, und the manner of I'oiujMtundii’g them, and are probably more capable of gvlir.g un opinion of the value of uny medical compound than any c of perrons in the wor’d. From tho fuel that they aro tuning up prescriptions of all the Physicians from morning ull ntglr the year round, continually mixing drugs, also ctoae observer* of thc ef- frds of dlift rout preparations upon patients enoldes them most fully to judge when a inediciuc is good and wheu bad.

P/ m article, believing it to be fur the better medicine. In vinuicnting themselves from these foul charge*, il became necessary to speak out frankly and fully thei views uf the two Townsend’s Sursaparillas. This they have done in the following Curd, lo which they now' invite the rentier’s nticntlon : “CARD TO THE PUBLIC.” We tlie undersigned Druggists ol New York. Brooklyn und Williatnsburgh. having seen an advertisement ad­ dressed to us, anu others who sell Sarsaparilla, by S. P.

But since wo a*e called “ swindlers,” and branded with the declaration of being wi’.lirg “to commit uny fraud for mom y,“ and as** men having no honor, and should not be trusted,’* we feel that we ought to give the reasons why wc prefer to use und sell Uld Dr. Townsend’s Sar­ saparilla, to Mr. S. P.Townsend’s, and leave the public tnjudge whether we are “dccvivers und swindlers, and m-t to be truste..” by so doing. 1 . Onr experience and observati ns have satisfied ui that the Old Dr/s Sarsaparilla possesses more medical power uml virtue than S. P. Townsend’s, and that the testimony of thu public would seem lo be the snme, and we a 1 ways make it a matter of conscience and duty w hen tw'o articles bearing tlie same name and purporting to curelhu same disease, ure in the market, to sell that whicli we consider the best. ’j’he fact-that H. I*. Townsend’s Sursapurilla has great­ ly soured, fermen’cd and axplodcd the Lottie*, thereby giving great dissatisfaction to our customers, has io/lu enced us in our preference ol the Old Dr ’* preparation — We do not feel ourselves called upon to deride the true merits of either article as standard preparations, but when u ked t>y our customers ior our opinion* w hich w e believe under all circumstance* to be thc best, wo should not hesitate in g>vlng our preference in favor of Old Dr. Jacob Townsend’s.

P.Townsend 1 aid was lidkllous, and in cor se- quenee threatened many of tbe ownersofpapers with pro­ secution for publishing it We have thereby been depri­ ved of advertising iu many papers in New' Y'ork and else­ where because of these threats, which the public will now see have no foundation as libellous n atter. Besides the statement of the above sbiy druggists, we have a pile of letters from druggists all over the country making the same declarations, which we are willing to show to anyone desiring to see them. Can any man after this give any credit to S. P. Townsend’* falsehoods respecting the Old Doctor, or lhat wc make a spurious Sarsaparilla, in “ imitation’\ of his souring fermenting onipound ?— Thc public wo know are interested in ono thing only, and that is, which of the two Townsend’s Sarsaparilla is the BEST MEDICINE! AU the wrangle about mir.oT matters is of no consequence whatever. The people want the medicine that cures , no matter by’ whom made, or by what name it It called. This question has now been FULLY SETTLED in the statement of the druggists ofthis city and else­ where. Persons, therefore, whu are afflicted with disea­ ses of the lungs or liver, with Scro/ula, Salt Rheum, Rheumatism,or any hereditary complaint, or Piles. Dys­ pepsia, Cutaneous Erupiions, Acidiiy of the Stomach and auy IMPURITY OF TUE BLOOD, will find tne Old Doctor’s Sarsnparilla a certain and effec­ tual remedy*. But in 11 thing is its excellence more mani­ festly seen and acknowledged than in all kinds and sta­ ge* of FEMALE COMPLAINTS, lt works wonders in cases of Fluor A1nis, I or whites, falling of the womb, obstructed, suppressed, or pAlnlul Menses, Irregularity of tho menstrual periods, and tVe like, and is effectual in curing ail forms nf Kidney Dis­ ease. It produces thc most marked and wonderful eures in summer complaints, such as Diarrhma, Cholera Mor­ bus, Dysentery, Bloody Flux, and all diseases among children. The Old Doctor’s Sarsaparilla is pronounced good be- CRUS9 IT IS GOOD, And all the efforts to put it down only raise it in the esti­ mation of the public. There i* one statement of Mr. S, P. Townsend respect­ ing us and ike O. 11 * D r . Townsknd’s S vrsaparilla which we desire to contradict. He says we are selling it at $4 a dozen, and if “ Druggists cannot raise money enough to pay that sum, wo give it to them lo pay for when sold.” Now the truth is, vve never sold a dozen Sarsaparilla lor $4 in tho world: neither do vvo; commission it for less han $ 8 , to be paid for when sold. We really cannot see the benefit ot telling such miserable, unreasanable false­ hoods. We know something about bis Sarsaparilla ardwhero he obtained his recipc.and what has been his occupation /or 20 years past; and we shall bring such evidence Into court as will straighten this matter out in fair and equal lines. There is nothing wo desire more than the oppor­ tunity to have all his grievances settled in a court of justice, as the evidence then must and SHALL come out. The people will then have this whole controversy unfolded, in pamphlet (orm, and will be able to judge who has the best title to the Gknuink Original Rkcipr. In tbe meantime^tlieOld Dr’s Sarsaparilla cau be had at the DEVOT, 102 NASSAU STREET, and of all the pria- ipal druggists in the city and country. jyI 2 Call and examine a largr lot of fine Silver Combs for sale cheap by VV.
