THE TRIUMPHS OF MEDICINE; 3nHE MEDICINE which has wrought the most wonderful cures, and which has conferred upon families an incalculable amount of [ benefit, is the justly celebrated WO USD ELL'S VEGETABLE RESTORATIVE PILLS, prepared solely by JOHN I £ AYS sq., of Dal ton-hall; near Hnddersfield. The overwhelming mass of facts which has gone forth from time to time demonstrate th&t, for purifying the blood, removing obstructions, causing the fluids to flow in their natural order, aiding digestion, relieving the head from oppressiveness, and imparting health and vigour to the whole system, so that it may perform all its functions with tone and energy, no remedy so effectual for the removal of pain and disease was ever presented to the notice of the public. No person'can take them without deriving benefit, and that in a short space of time. Unlike other medicines, they are harmless in their nature, while powerful in their operation. It is impossible, in the space of an ordinary advertisement, to give more than a very brief sample of the "thousands of Testimonials which have been received from all parts of the kingdom :— STOMACH COMPLAINT. SIR,-Having received the following unsolicited testimony in -favour of Worsdell's Pills, I feel it is but just to forward it to you. I am, Sir, yours respectfully, Luton, January 24,1850. JOHN JORDAN. JOSEPH JUGGINS, of Market-street, Beds, says he had been labouring for thirty years under a complaint in the Stomach, which he attributed to lying on the damp ground whilst serving in the army under the Duke of Wellington at the battle of Waterloo. He had taken medicines in abundance, and incurred great expense in hope of relief, but the pain and sickness gradually increased, and he had given up all-hope .of a cure, expecting his disease would •carry him to the grave. A.short time ago he was recommended to try Kaye's Worsdell's Pills: after taking two boxes, to his asto- nishment and gratification, the pain, which had been his constant companion for so long a period, was so greatly alleviated t, t, buoyed up by hope, he persevered until he had taken six boxes, which effected a complete cure and, although now far advanced in life, he enjoys a state of health "which he has been a stranger to for the last thirty years. ERYSIPELAS. SIR,-I beg to inform you that my wife, Grace Venning, was afflicted with Erysipelas, from which she has been perfectly cured by persevering, for a short time, in the use of your Pills and has had no return of the complaint. GEORGE VENNING, Farmer. Linkenhorne, near Callington, Cornwall. SEVERE LIVER COMPLAINT. EDWARD ROBERTS, of Dunford-bridge, near Holmfirth, was -most severely afflicted for nine months with a liver complaint, and was pronounced incurable by his medical attendant; but, seeing can announcement of the good effected by Kaye's Worsdell's Pills, he began to take them; and, by the use of less than three boxes, he has been perfectly cured. INDIGESTION. ISAAC BAILEY, 26, Regent-street, Oldfield-road, Salf6rd, suf- fered severely from indigestion for twelve months; and though under treatment by two medical men, he received no benefit. He procured one box of Kaye's Worsdell's Pills, by taking which a complete cure was effected. Mr. CHARLES ADAMS, farmer, of Chedderton, near Bungay, suffered from indigestion and extreme debility for seven years, during which period he was attended by two medical gentlemen.. He was said to be in a consumption, and no hopes were given of his recovery. He determined, however, to give the Vegetable Re- storative Pills a fair trial. He experienced great relief from taking. the first box and, to his; great surprise and comfort, perseverance, in the use of them restored him to perfect health. Mr7 JAMES NOBLE, of Brampton, Cumberland, writes:—My wife was very ill some time ago of pain in her stomach, sickness, loss of appetite, and general debility. I had frequently taken your Pills myself, and always derived great benefit, so that I had hope.s they might do her good. I purchased a small box, and by the time she had taken them she was quite restored. Indeed I am so fully persuaded of their utility, from what I have felt and seen, that I hav £ -re»oived not to take any other medicine while I can get them. AGEN' CARDIFF o. J. F. ARNOLD, Angel-street; MERTHYR TYDFIL R. JONES, High-street. EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS OF THE NEW REMEDY, Which has never been known to fail. A Cure effected or the Money returned. DR. DE ROOS' CONCENTRATED GUTTLE VIT^l has, in all instances, proved a speedy and permanent cure for every variety of Disease arising; from Solitary Habits, Youthful delusive Ex cesses, and Infection, nuchas Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, &c., which from neglect or improper treatment by Mercury, Copaiba, Cubebs, and other deadly poisons, invariably end in some of the following forms of secondary symptoms; viz., pains and swellings in the bones, joints, and glands, skin eruptions, blotches, and pimples, weakness of the eyes, loss of hair, disease and decay of the nose, sore throats, pains in the side, back, and loins, fistula, piles, &c., diseases of the kidneys and bladder, gleet, stricture, seminal weakness, nervous and sexual debility, loss of memory, and finally such a state of drowsiness, lassitude and general prostration of strength, as, unless skilfully arrested, soon ends in a miserable death. In the prevention and removal of the foregoing symptoms, and as. a restorative of manly vigour,, whether deficient from early im- prudence, or residence in hot climates, &c., this medicine has obtained an unparalleled popularity. From its properties in removing leucorrhoea or whites, head- ache, giddiness, indigestion, palpitation of the heart, dry cough, lowness of spirits, barrenness, and all disorders of FEMALES, it is admirably adapted to that class of sufferers, as it not only purifies and strengthens the whole system, but it creates new, pure and rich blood, an soon restores the invalid to sound health even after all other remedies (which have usually a depressing tendency) have failed in this lies the grand secret of its universal success. Sent securely packed, to any part from the Establishment only, price lis. per Bottle, or four quantities in one large Bottle for 30s., with full Instructions for Use, on Receipt of the amount by Post Office Order, payable at the Holborn Office. PAINS IN THE BACK, GRAVEL, LUMBAGO, Rheumatism, Gout, Debility, Indigestion, Stricture, Gleet, &c. DR. DE ROOS' COMPOUND RENAL PILLS Are a certain cure for the above dangerous complaints if recently acquired, as also all diseases. of the kidneys and urinary organs gene- rally, whether resulting from imprudence or otherwise, which if neglected invariably result in symptoms of a far more serious cha- racter, and frequently an agonising death. By their salutary action on the acidity of the stomach, they correct bile and indigestion, purify and promote the Reual secretions, thereby preventing the formation 8f stone in the bladder, and establishing for life the healthy functions of all these organs. They have never been known to fail, and may be obtained through most Medicine Vendors, price Is. lad., 2s. 9d., and 4s. 6d. per box, or sent free on receipt of the price in postage stamps, by Dr. De Roos. Lasting benefit can only be reasonably expected at the hands of the duly qualified practitioner who, departing from the routine of general practice, devotes, the whole of his- studies to this class of diseases, the lamentable neglect of which by ordinary medical men, and their futile attempts at cure by Mercury and other equally dan- gerons Medicines, have produced the most alarming results. Sufferers are invited to apply at once to DR. Dic R-, who gua- rantees a speedy and perfect cure of every symptom without hin- drance from business, change of diet, &c., in comparatively few days, or return the money. Country patients wishing to place themselves under treatment will be minute in the detail of their cases; and to prevent trouble no letters from strangers will be replied to unless they contain E 1 in cash, or by Post Office Order payable at the Holborn office, for which Advice and Medicines will be sent. Patients corresponded vith till cured. At home for consultation daily, from ten till one, and four till eight (Sundays excepted).

[OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.) Extract from the Medical Gazette and Times. Fortunately for our country a remedy for these deplorable complaints is at last found and we hail the time as not far distant when such diseases shall be comparatively unheard of; we hope all persons so afflicted will lose no time in availing themselves of Dr. de Roos' skill." This work is indeed a boon to the public, as it has the two-fold advantage of plainness, and being written by a skilful and duly qualified man, who evidently well understands his subject."—Daily runes. This is a work of superlative excellence, and one we should re- commend to the perusal of all; in fact it is quite essential to those of either sex who contemplate marriage. "-Record. Address—WALTER DE ROOS, M.D., 85, Ely-place, Hol- bw* Hill* London. INFLAMMATION OF THE LUNGS. JAMES JORDAN, coal merchant, Broadwall, Lambeth, was foi five months affected with inflammation of the lungs. He obtained advice from two eminent medical men, but without relief. At length he tried Kaye's Worsdell's Pills; and, after taking three boxes, he was perfectly cured. DROPSY. Mrs. DODD, Seal-street, Liverpool, was so dreadfully swollen with dropsy, that her legs were almost as large as her body, and her face so swelled that her eyes could scarcely be seen. She had also a violent cough, attended with spitting of blood. After the faculty had pronounced her incurable, she was restored to perfect health, in a very short time, by the use of these Pills. SCROFULA. ROBERT WOASTBR, Irtgh Wycombe, received a very remarkable cure. He says :—" I was afflicted for ten years with scrofula in the leg and knee. Doctors did all in their power to relieve me; and I kept my bed-for twenty-five weeks, trying various sorts of pills, ointments, cerates, and all I could hear of, but all in vain. While my knee was greatly swollen, and I knew not how to bear the pain, I determined'to try Kaye's Worsdell's Pills. I did so, and a pleas- ing' change took place immediately. I persevered till I had taken; eight boxes, and I have been quite well for some time. I can stand or walk, and'am able to work hard for fourteen hours per day. I have not been so well for many years." SORE LEGS. Mr. W. WARMINGTON,: of St. Columb, Cornwall, was afflicted with a very sore leg for upwards of thirteen years, during which time he tried every possible means to obtain a cure, but to no pur- pose. He at last heard of the Vegetable Restorative Pills, and purchased a box he is upwards of fifty years of age and although he has taken. but three boxes in the whole, .his leg is perfectly healed, and the once affected leg is the better of the two; he has since travelled thirty miles per day. COMPLICATION OF DISORDERS.' SlR,-I send you the case of Mrs. PAGE, of Bexhill, who has been afflicted with a complication of diseases for many years. She suffered greatly from dropsy, liver complaint, and spasms, and though she employed many doctors, at a great expense, she ob- tained little or. no relief, and began to despair of a cure. Provi- dentially hearing of Kaye's Vegetable and Restorative Pills, she determined to test their efficacy, and after taking a few boxes she was so far recovered as to be able to walk four miles* and back. The water has been driven from her chest, and she enjoys better health than she had before done for years. E.* WINCHESTER. Chapel-house, Heathfield, Sussex. IMPORTANT CAUTION. Be careful that you are not imposed upon by spurious imitations the genuine have the words WORSDELL'S PILLS, by JOHN KAYE," engraved on the Government Stamp, and, as a further protection, Mr. Kaye's coat of arms and a fac-simile of his signa- ture are printed on the directions wrapped round each Box, and to imitate which is felony.

FRANCE. PARIS, SATURDAY.—The hotel of the English embassy WAS closed last night. Lord Normanby, who had retired to his summer residence at Versailles, had not demanded his pass- ports, nor had he received from his Government orders to return to England. On Thursday the President gave a ball at the Elysee, at which, of course, Lord Normanby was not present. All the English invited had received intelli- gence of the recall of the French ambassador from London in time to abstain. Several burgraves, who ventured to congratulate the President upon the treble round of cheers in the Assembly which hailed the announcement of the re- call, were checked by the coldness and sternness of the re- ception they encountered. The evident coercion exercised by the burgraves upon the President, and the symptoms of dissatisfaction manifested by Louis Napoleon at being sad- dled by a policy which leads directly to the restoration of the monarchy, and is, perhaps, dictated at Claremont, give some colour to the surmise, that he will find some means of escaping from this thraldom, and adopting a policy at once independent and national. General Lamoriciere is talked of as Minister of War in a future Cabinet. On Saturday afternoon in the Legislative Assembly, after a series of members from the left had presented petitions against the electoral law, M. Leon Faucher ascended the tribune, and read his report on the Government Bill. The alterations of the committee, which were confined to the first ten articles, may be described briefly as follows :—1. The condition of three years' domicile is extended from the com- mune to the canton. 2. Functionaries shall be inscribed- upon the electoral lists of their commune, whether they have resided there three years or not, provided that they have served three years in office. 3. Soldiers shall be inscribed upon the 'list of the commune in which they were enrolled. 4. Incase of refusal or obstacle to the certification of domi- cile on the part of fathers, mothers, masters, or employers, the certification shall be made by the juge de paii. 5. Be- sides the categories described in the bill as excluded from the exercise of the electoral franchise are excluded all per- sons condemned in virtue of article 330 of the penal code for outraging public religions and social morality, all persons con- demned to more than one month of imprisonment for rebel- lion, offering outrage to public functionaries, &c.; those who are condemned for hawking prints are excluded for five years. Those are also excluded who have been condemned to three months of imprisonment, in virtue of Art. 444 of the penal code; and soldiers condemned to the clog (boulet), or to pub- lic works, or sent for punishment into companies of disci- pline. 6. Lastly, the conditions of majority of votes re- quired for election are changed, so that the sole condition is made by the committee to consist in polling one quarter of the votes inscribed on the lists. M. Leon Faucher's report was, marked with that quality which passes with the mode- rate party for energy. After finishing his report, M. Leon Faucher read the bill as amended by the committee. The debate was fixed for Tuesday; on Monday there will be no sitting. The leading organs of the cabinet, after their first crash, have singularly softened their angry key. For the present we hear no more of the 11 rupture" with England, which was so emphatically announced from the tribune by M. Lahitte. The affair is reduced to much hum- bler proportions. The Journal des Debats only regards it as a misunder- standing which will be readily explained, and it is not quite clear that the contradiction which exists between the state- ment of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and that of the Mar- quis of Lansdowne, if not of Lord Palmerston, may not be cleared up in a manner favourable to the English cabinet.
ROME. MAr i o.-The Papal benediction was yesterday imparted to the stray sheep of the Eternal City, for the first time since their manifold transgressions against their spiritual pastor and temporal sovereign. His Holiness once more spread abroad his hands towards his people from the lofty balcony of St. John Lateran, in sign of forgiveness and blessing, and it now only remains for them to hope devoutly that the out- ward and visible form may speedily be followed up by the reality of sovereign pardon. The usual distribution of in- dulgences took place after the blessing, and was attended by the usual scramble, although a far different result awaited the two Papal bulls and their monstrous seals than that of preceding years. The expectant countrymen below the bal- cony, who had been enduring a fearful squeeze for some time previous, in the hope of being in a good situation to catch one of the indulgence bulls, were cheated out of their just expectations by the gustiness of the weather, and the wind most provokingly carried the first document just out of reach of their straining fingers towards a party of French soldiers, by whom it was immediately Snapt up. The second under- went the same fate; and I was just in time to see a French grenadier, very red from the struggle, cram it into his shako, as the safest depot he possessed. A chasseur d'Orleans, one of the unsuccessful scramblers, inquired confidentially of me the nature of the bulls" Qu'est ce que c'est donc que cas, papiersla ?" "Mais," replied I, "ce sont des indulgences." p api Z5 Ah, bah!" exclaimed lie, in return, turning away, and con- soling himself with a most expressive shrug for not having borne off the prize instead of his stouter competitor.
GERMANY. BERLIN, MAY 16.—The Congress has concluded its deli- berations. The last sitting took place yesterday. From the meagre reports which reach the public of its, proceedings, it appears that the latter sittings have been attended with greater concord and harmony than was apparent in the earlier ones. The Elector of Hesse is said to have so far moderated his tone as to demand only further delay before the union shall be definitively constituted; in this view of the matter he was supported by Mecklenburg- Strelitz and Schaumburg-Strelitz, though from very different motives. The steps which are to be taken by the members of the union, in other respects, were unanimously agreed to. In the sitting of the 14th, the important question was dis- cussed, whether the members of the union should depute to the Frankfort Congress; it was unanimously resolved to do so, upon the condition, however, that the step could in no way prejudice the interests of the union. With regard to the leading principles to be observed in deputing to the Con- gress, it was resolved that. all the cabinets should simulta- neously address a note to the Government of Austria some- what to the following effect. The States of the Union will depute to the Frankfort Congress, in order to prove their sincere readiness to co-operate in the re-organisation of the affairs of the Germanic Confederation they protest, how- ever, in advance, against the claim put forward by Austria to exercise the presidial right, which ceased to exist with the dissolution of the Diet, and also against the supposition, that the Frankfort Congress represents the plenium of tho old Diet, as they can regard it only in the light of a volun- tary assembly of the thirty-five German Governments for a certain purpose. —
GREECE. Letters from Malta of the 12th instant announce the re- turn of the six line-of-battle ships, in consequence of the termination of the Greek affair. Two vessels remained at Athens. Greece was perfectly tranquil,
rr tanh. DUBLIN, MAY 18.—The Presbyterian Synod of Dublin held its annual meeting this week. The subject of the Go- vernment regulations respecting the Regium Donum was brought forward, and it was unanimously resolved- That the Synod earnestly recommend the General Assembly to take into their consideration at their next meeting said re- gulations, with a view to their modification and also that it would be for the advantage of the Presbyterian Church if the Regium Donum were received by each minister directly from the Treasury, saving the interests of the present agents." The proceedings in relation to the Rev. John Dill and ther congregation of Clonmel, against whom an action for libel had been brought by Mr. Matthews, were mentioned; and it was resolved that as Mr. Matthews had escaped to Am*-
