PATENT HYDRO-ELECTRIC CHAXftr, FOR PERSONAL USE, THE RECORDS of this latest discovery in Electricity, con- taining upwards of Four Hundred communications of Cures effected within the last Six Months, from Physicians of the highest standing, Noblemen, Clergymen, Magistrates, and persons in ail Classes 01 Society, and from all parts of the Country, may now be had at MR. MEINIG'S Head Depots, and from all the Agents in town and country. Being, however, mostly chance-communications, even this great number does not probably represent One-fiftieth part of the Cures actually effected within Six Months, and in the most variegated forms of Nervous and Functional Disease,by this truly miraculous agent. The discovery, that mild, but continuous Electric Currents, as evolved from these Portable Chains, exercise the most decisive injluenflls on the whole system, will, when generally known, range among the greatest blessings that we owe to science, and will prove even more conducive to individual happiness than that other marvel of the day, the Electric Telegraph.

MEINIG, Head Depots, 103, Leadenhall-street, and 71, Regent-street, London; and from all Agents, in town and country.

Doctor of Medicine, Matriculated Member of the Unive' of Edinburgh, Honorary Member of the London H yital Medical Society, Licentiate of Apothecaries' Hall, I 'on, Member of the Huntenan Medical Society of Ediuu rgh, &c., &c. This work contains a plain and complete description of the anatomy and physiology of the reproductive organ*, and of their relative conditions in health and disease. Dr. La'Mert, who has taken the highest medical honours, as evidenced by the diplomas and testimonials inserted in the work, is the only legally qualified medical man who has exclusively. and for many years, devoted his studies to the treatment of these complaints. He may be consulted with advantage by all those whose constitutions may have become debilitated through secret practices acquired in youth, or by the excesses of later years whereby the pleasures of life are marred, the objects of marriage frustrated, and existence itself rendered a term of unceasing misery and regret.

THE present Proprietor of HALSK'S CELEBRATED MEDICINES, having been a vendor of them, and having heard from his customers of the ail-but miraculous effects of them, and knowing that they had not been brought before the fiublic in the provinces, (although their sale in London,is very arge), in a manner that they ought to be, was induced to offer a certain sum for the Recipes, Titles, &c., to the original pro- prietor. After much time, and paying a much greater sum than he intended, he has accomplished his object. He has no doubt, however, that the invalid public will ultimately well pay him for his outlay. HALSE'S SCORBUTIC DROPStf A jure Cure for Scurvy, Bad Legs, and all Impurities of the Blood. Their effect in purifying the blood is all but miraculous.' This medicine is generally admitted to be the most certain purifyer of the blood of any as yet discovered, a remarkable change in the appearance-from a death-like paleness to the roseate hue of health- taking place within a very short time. Price 2s. 9d. each bottle and in pint bottles containing nearly six 2s. 9d. bottles, for lis., patent duty included. Declaration of the Guardians of Brent, Devon. We, the undersigned, solemnly declare, that before Thomas Rolins, (one of our parishioners), commenced taking Halse's Scorbutic Drops, he was literally covered with luge running wounds, some of them so large that a person might have laid hit fist in them that before he had finished the first bottle, he noticed an improvement, and that, by oontinuing them for some time, he gotcomptetety restored to health, after everything ^lse had failed. He had tried various sorts of medicine before taking Halse's Scorbutic Drops, and had prescriptions from the most celebrated physicians in this county, without deriving the least benefit. Halse's Scorbutic Drops have completely cured him, and he is now able to attend to his labour as well as any man in our parish. From other cures also made in this part, we strongly recommend Halse's Scorbutic Drops to the notice of the public. Signed by JOHN ELLIOTT, Lord of the Manor. JOHN MANNING. WILLIAM PEARSE. HENRY GOODMAN. ARTHUR LANGWORTHY. June 21, 1843." The medicine has the same action on the impurities of the blood as an antidote has on poison, viz., bytttamediatety robbing it or its evil qualities. Its effects are inoWd astonishing, and will scarcely be credited until tried. Halse's Scorbutic Drops may be procured from any respecta- ble Chemist, or from the Wholesale Agents, BARCLAY and SON, 95, Fariingdon-street, City and C.
