A Natural remedy and certain cure for Gout, Rheu- matism, and Scrofula, Diseased Joints, Lumbago, Skin Dise*si s, Spinal and lilaiidular Affections, Scrofula Ulcers, Swelled Legs, and all External Diseases, aiising from an impure xtate of the Blood, or from Domestic Accidents, as Sprains. Bruises, Wounds, Scalds, Burns, Cilitt)lo-.ns, Gbapped Hands, &c. Ike. The following Testimonials, with authenticated cases of extraordinary cure, are fioin the highest and most respectable authority COD LIVE Ol.. in cases of GOUT & RHEUMATISM. The diseases in which the Cod Liver Oil is attended with the most extraordinary results are the Gout and ^eumatism. It i* rather a curious fact, and one that fully establishes the truth of what we have already stated, that some years ago, Cod Liver Oil was introduced into Manchester, by a celebrated German practitioner, then on a visit to Ur. Kay. 1 hysician to the Manchester Infirmary. who was the first medical man who prescribed this remedy for the cure of Gout and Rheumatism, in this country. Mr. Darby, llouse-Surgeou and Apothecary to the same institution, gave Ilie following arconnt of an t.x- traordinary cure :—' A woman, who laboured under the most excruciating rheumatism, being advised to rub her joints with the oil, after a few weeks was restored to the use of her limbs and was cured." Encouraged by this extraordinary cure, Dr. Kay continued to prescribe it for other patients in similar case.. and with the same success. Dr. Bardsley, also, when treating of chronic rheumatism observes, < tn instances, when every other means have failed Cod Liver Oil has operated in a manner so decidedly benefi- cial as to excite astonishment." The circumstances under which this specific remedy m found most advantageous, are the foilowing :-lst. In the chronic rheumatism of elderly persons, when the muscles and tendons have become rigid, and the joints nearly flexible, in consequence of the disease having been brought on by exces- sive labour, hard fare, dampness, and cold. 2nd. In women whose constitutions have been worn out by repeated rheumatic attacks, especially in the decline of life; & patients who were unable either to preserve the body in an erect position, or sup- port its weight on the lower extremities, have recovered en. tirely by rubbiug the oil on the affected parts. DR. BHEFIEI.D'S OPINION, WITH UABHB OF CURE. A Ilother celebrated Physician, Dr. Rrefield, found theoil of the greatesi benefit in cases where the Gout or Hlieumatism appear to have seized upon the whole system, and when, as the. result of long suffering, the body is wasted, the proceas of nutrition very -low, there is want of sleep, loss of vital powers, languid expression of the countenance,contraction of the mus- cles, &c. &c.; and mentions the following case of Mrs. Mea'rman, 30 years old, who had been confined to her bed or room and only in the warm summer months experienced a slight alleviation of her sufferiligs :-Nearly the whole body was attacked, but principally the inferior extteimties, back, and shoulders. Walking was entirely prevented by the (insup- portable pains, stiffness and swelling of the joints. This pa- tient was wasted, of a bleachy whiteness, and had lost all hope of relief, though originally of a strong and robust constitution. The use of the Oil daily, was soon followeaby a beneficial result, and after some time she was restore d to a tolerable state of health. This person, after this, was three years from the time he first saw her, perfectly healthy, well nourished, blouming, and of robust appearance. COD LIVER OIL IN OLD AGE & RIGID MUSCLES. Men and women advanced in years, whose fibres may be supposed to have acquired a degree of rigidity, fititi surprising effects from the use of this remedy. Some who have been cripples for many yean, and not able to move from their seats, have, after a few weeks use of it. been able to go with the assistance of a stick and by a long continuance have enjoyed the pleasing satisfaction of being restored to the natural use of their limbs, which for a long time before had been a burthen to them. Dr. Percival, of the Manchester Infirmary, says. I have had the fullest evidence of the successful use of Cod Liver Oil, and have contiasted, by experiment, its value with other remedies these trials always terminate in favour of the Oil; and patients who were under other treatment, by confer- ring with their fello > -sufferers, were so sensible of making a slower progress towards recovery, as to require a change of one remedy for the other. The above is only a small portion of an immense number of Testimonials that have already been received in extraordinary properties of this truly wonderful NAIU u REMEDY. Prospectuses containing additional evidence of the value of Cod Liver Oil in other di eases, with general remarks on its natural and commercial history, its Physical and ChemIcal Properties, Action on the Human Economy. &c-» also particular directions for its proper application, will be lent to any address on the receipt of two postage stamps.

THIS railway is intended to connect the South Wales Railway at Chepstow with Gloucester, Cheltenham, and Birmingham, with the projected Cheltenham, Oxford and London direct, Gloucester and Aberystwith, North- ampton and Cheltenham, and Manchester and Southamp- ton Railways thus forming an uninterrupted line of communication from the South of Ireland, through Fish. guard and Milford in Pembrokeshire, to Gloucester, Cheltenham, Oxford, and London direct, Southampton, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, and the North of England, by a less circuitous route than can be effected by any of the projected plans for crossing the Severn below Gloucester, thereby avoiding the difficulties which must necessarily be encountered in such an undertaking, and affording the important towns and districts upon the in- tended lines that accommodation which their importance entitles them to. The whole of the traffic upon the South Wales line passing to the eastward of Chepstow will be carried on this line: added to which the coal and mineral traffic from the Forest of Dean (which, from the eastern side to Gloucester, has been estimated upon authentic docu- ments and information, at upwards of 300,000 tons and from the western or Lyiluey and Chepstow side the same amount of traffic may safely be calculated upon), amount- ing to 600,000 tons per annum (the produce of the Forest alone), must be carried upon the line, independent of the local passenger traSc and an extended trade in the pro- duce of the Forest, which will necessarily follow the facilities offered by the proposed railroad. The revenue from this source alone will give a very handsome dividend upon the capital to be expended, which is expected will not exceed three-fourths of the in- tended capital. It is proposed to make branches to the collieries and iron works in the Forest, to the present or any new ports which may suggest themselves on the Severn and to make the river Wye, at Chepstow, the port of foreign export, where vessels of any size can enter free from the dangers and difficulties attendant upon the navigation of the Severn, consequent upon the rocks and shifting sands in that river. It is intended to build a bridge across the Severn at Gloucester, which will in no way obstruct the navigation and the proposed Gloucester and Aberystwith Company will no doubt be ready to join this Company in the ex- pense, if they obtain their Act. The cost of the intended line from Chepstow to Gloucester, including the bridge at Gloucester, and the one over the river Wye, at Chepstow, to join the South Wales, with branches to the collieries, iron works, and the Severn, is not expected to exceed £450,000, but it is intended to provide a capital of £600,000 to meet any contingencies which may arise. A reference to the map will shew the self-evident im- portance of this line as essential to the perfecting of the great project of the South Wales Railway Company (who have obtained their Act of Parliament for a rail- road from Fishguard and Milford Haven to Chepstow) in connecting it with the principal railways of the kingdom at Gloucester, and making it the direct road to London, via Cheltenham and Oxford, for effecting which projects are now before the public with most influential support. The line is <26 miles in length, has no engineering difficul- ties; the gradients and curves are extremely good, and works light. It may with very great confidence be asserted, that there is scarcely a short line of railroad in the kingdom which offers greater advantages to the shareholders than the present. Provision will be made in the Act of Par- liament which will be applied for in the next session to limit the liability of the shareholder to the amount of his shares, and to allow 4 per cent. on the calls. Applications for shares to be made to the Solicitors, or to Messrs. Carden and Whitehead, Threadneedle- street, and Messrs. Backhouse and Co., No. 4, Angel- court, Throgmorton-street, London; Messrs. Hall Brothers and Co., Cheltenham Messrs. Tate and Nash, Bristol; Mr. Thomas Evans, Bath; Messrs. Bradley, Ford, and Parker, Manchester; Messrs. H. Davies and Co., Dale-street, Liverpool; Messrs.

FOR STOPPING DECAYED TEETH, however large the cavity.—Patronised by her Majesty the Queen Dowager, Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Gloucester, His Grace the Duke of Wellington, and the principal nobility. Mr. CLARKE'S SUCCEDANEUM for stopping decayed teeth, is far superior to anything ever before used, as it is placed in the tooth without any pressure or pain, becomes as hard as the enamel imme- diately after application, and remains firm in the tooth for life; not only rendering extraction unnecessary, but also making them again useful for mastication. All persons can use Mr. CLARKE'S SUCCEDA- NEUM themselves with ease, as full directions are enclosed—price 5s. and sold by all respectable Medicine Vendors in Town and Country and can be sent by post on receiving a post-office order. Prepared only by Mr. Clarke, Surgeon-Dentist, 61, Grosvenor-street, Bond- street (removed from 53, Harley-street, Cavendish Square). LOSS OF TENTH.—Mr. Clarke still continues to supply the loss of teeth, from one to a complete set, upon his beautiful system of Self-adhesion; which has procured him such universal approbation in some thousands of cases, and recommended by Sir C. M. Clark, Bart., M.D.; Sir M. Tierney, Bart., M.D.; Dr. Chambers, Dr. Paris, Dr. James Johnson, Dr. Conquest, and nu- merous other Members of the Medical Profession, as being the most ingenious system of supplying artificial teeth hitherto invented. They are so contrived as to adapt themselves over the most tender gums, or remain- ing stumps, without causing the least pain, rendering the operation of extraction quite unnecessary; and in order that his system may be within the reach of the most economical, he will continue the same moderate charges. Mr. Clarke, Surgeon-Dentist, No. 61, Grosvenor-street, Bond-street, London.—At home from eleven till four. Mr. CLARKE'S TOOTH-POWDER, which has procured him such universal approbation, in some thou- sands of cases, is highly recommended by numerous Physicians and Surgeons, as being the best tooth-powder ever yet prepared it prevents and eradicates the tartar from the teeth, and imparts to the gums that ruddy appearance, and to the teeth a pearl-like whiteness. Mr. Clarke can say with safety (as it is prepared only by him) that, if analysed, its properties would be found to be of the purest kind. It can be sent by post, on re- ceiving a post-office order! and it is sold by most respectable Chemists in town and country—price 2s. 6d. GLAMORGANSHIRE L.1 2a ZPF EASTERN DISTRICT.

We regard the work before us, The Silent Friend," as a work embracing most clear and practical views of a aeries of complaints hitherto tittle understood, and passed over by the majority of the Medical profession, for what reason we are at a loss to know.

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS: I his work, a TENTH edition of which is now presented to the public-ten thousand copies have been exhausted since its first appearance, has been very much improved and enlarged by the addition of a more extended and clear detail of general principles as also by the insertion of several new and highly in- teresting cases. The book, as has been already stated, in the result of very ample and daily increasing experience is a class of diseases, which for some unaccountable reason, have been either altogether over )o )ked, or treated almost with in- daference by the ordinary medical practitioner. The numberless instances daily incurring, wherein affections of tile lungs, putting on all the outer appearances of consumption which, however, when traced to their source, are found to result from certain banetul habits, fully proves that the principle of the division of labor is nowhere mor»applicable than in medical practice. We feel no hesitation in saying, that there is no member of society by whom the book will not be found useful, whether such person hold the relation of a Parent, a Preceptor, or a Clergyman."— Sun, Evening paper. The rage for books in all departments of science, literature, and the arts, was, we believe, never so prevalent as at the present time.—The unavoidable consequence of this is, that we meet a very considerable proportion of indifferent, useless, and even bad books.—With the force of this prejudice on our minds we with no little reluctance were induced to peruse Messrs. Curtis's work, entitled MAN HOOD.The scientific views taken by the authors of the source and ongiu of many of the most distressing effects of certain depraved habits, fully estaolish their claim '0 the character of experienced and judicious surgeons. -.tu.) tne result of our careful per isal of the work has been, to impress us with a thorough confidence in the talent and »iill of the author*, and to satisfy us that those entrusted with the care of youth are not a little indebted to tliem for furnishing them with a means of preventing sotfle of the most frightful maladies to which flesh is heir.-OUl England. The multitude of books daily coming from the press, some, nay most of them, of a very questionable tendency, made us extremely reluctant io take up another. The clear exposition of the source of many of those diseases which prove so fatal to youth, and which are set down by the every day observer as the result of common cause*, such as exposure to coid, sudden vicissitudes oi temperature, hereditary taint, &c., is truly convincing an i extremely satisfactory. And we do not think we go too far 1.1 sayiug, that society is deeply indebted to the authors for producing so useful, so much wanted, so valuable, and so truly moral a book. -Conservative Journal. This is a work that we fear there exists too much need of to cause us to hesitate to recommend it for geueral perusal Every branch of those frightful maladies, whether the result of immoral habits or secret vices, is here succinctly treated, and, divested of all medical i -cnnicality, plain and easy directions are given for tbe besi mode to be pursued in all cases, however complicated i-r apparently hopeless.

A FEARFUL STORY.—One of the most striking spots on the coast of Clare is the cliffs of Moher, rising dark and frowning nine hundred and thirty feet above the ocean. In these the sea-eagle builds her nest; the cliffs are also frequented by sc. fowl, which are caught by the hardy peasantry in the usual way on bold shores,-the fowlers suspended over the face of the rock and carrying on their vocation in mid-air, when they reach a slender foot-hold in the vicinity of their prey. On these occa sions they are sometimes attacked by the sea-eagles, and run fearful risks; the story of one of which we extract from a new work called—" Scenes on the shores of the Atlantic." It is as follows :—" They [the eagles] are very ferocious and bold, and sometimes make desperate attacks upon the bird-catchers, flying at them as they descend the cliffs, with beak and claws, and directing their fury against the eyes of the intruders. To defend themselves against these formidable enemies, the men carry long knives; and a story is told of a desperate encounter that took place some six or eight years since between a bird-catcher and one of these sea-eagles, which was well nigh terminating fatally to the former. The man had been lowered from the top, and hung suspended from the overhanging precipice, when an eagle darted at him from out of a fissure in the rock, and com- menced a furious attack. The bird-catcher drew his knife and de fended himself; but his feathered assailant eluded for a long time every blow. At length, however, finding himself closely pressed, and maddened by repeated slight stabs of the knife, the enragel bird gathered up his powers for a last desperate dart at the man. The latter saw the impending danger and, blind to everything but the necessity of a vigorous effort to parry the attack, raised his knife, and aimed a furious blow at the eagle. It took effect but too well the stroke that freed the bird-catcher from his fierce antagonist severed at the same moment almost in twain the rope to which he was attached, leaving the unfortunate man suspended but by a single thread or twist of the cable over the yawning abyss. In this dreadful extremity there was nothing left him but to give the signal by which his companions over- head would understand that he wished to be drawn up. Most providentially, they perceived his awful predicament, and slowly and with the greatest caution commenced putting in the rope. It was so slender that there seemed scarcely a possibility that the almost severed thread could last until the wretched man reached the top and with sickening suspense and dread, h' felt the frail link that still bound him to life, and saved h t from the horrible gulf below, stretch and crack beneath h:3 weight. It required, too, the utmost skill and caution on the part of those overhead to keep the fractured portion of the rope from chafing ag-ainst the sharp knife-like edge of the projecting rocks; and between the agony of seeing tbe fragile thread g. dually attenuate and become every moment weaker and weaker from the continued pressure, and the necessity of drawing it very slowly lest some unforeseen shock should cause it to snap suddenly, and hurl the victim into the abyss, the men on the cliff ■were in a state of scarcely less suspense than the object of their anxiety. At length the unfortunate bfcd-catcher neared the brow of the precipice: his companions redoubled their efforts, for the rope was every instant showing increased symptom' Df giving way. It snapped just as he was within an inch of the top but not before one of the men had seized a firm grasp of his clothes, by which he was enabled to drag him triumphantly over the brink. At the sight of their comrade in safety, the men, among whom a breathless silence had hitherto prevailed, raised a loud shout: but he heard it not. The awful situation in which he had been so long suspended was too much fcr Lhe poor bird-catcher: he lay stretched on the grass without se tsc or motion. For a long time, so profound was his insensibility, his companions thought he was dead: but he recovered at length; though he has never, it is said, completely gotten over the effects of that fearful hour."
