MAN CHESTER H O TJ S E, C A R D I F i. D. PHILLIPS. T?NCOtJHA'GED by the conviction derived from the fact of my increasing Trade, that the Public of CARDIFF and Neighbourhood JPJ can appreciate a liberal-system of Business, I am induced to venture with confidence that on SATURDAY NEXT, 22nd JUNE 1850, and forthcoming days, 1 shall submit for Sale AN ASSORTMENT OF GENERAL DRAPERY, as will, I trust, satisfy my Friends and Patrons that my Establishment is decidedly the cheapest and best. The style, material, and durability of every article claim especial attention." HATS, CAPS, and BONNETS, at Prices really astonishing. WOOLLENS, DRESSES, &c., of the newest and best manu- facture, sold at the lowest scale of profit. ONE PRICE ONLY. ■DELIVERED CARRIAGE FREE TO ALL PARTS OF ENGLAND. TEAS AT "HOLESALE PRICES. ■ TEA WAREHOUSE, 2, BUCKLERSBURY, CHEAPSIDE, LONDON. TTpIIIS Establishment was commenced in the year 1830. Its successful progress during 20 years has gratified our anticipations. f_ The patronage of the Public has elevated its position to one of the largest in the Trade. Our main object has been, and still is, to supply the Public on TR VDK TERMS. Great and assuming as such an undertaking appears to be, it is obvious that to do Business on y t a. Wholesale Scale, it is necessary to have wholesale appliances. In conformity with these ideas, our locality was chosen in a bye ■thoroughfare, where space and accommodation are sufficient to carry on trade to any extent, but without those merciless and enormous expenses inseparably attached to retail shops in prominent situations, whereby an extravagant profit is rendered necessary. Hence its will be seen that we are in a position to supply the Public on the best and most economical terms—in fact to supply at first hand, by which all intermediate profits are saved. The immense variety of Teas now imported into this country, demands the most scrutinising caution. In this we have considerable advantages, as from the extent of our trade we are enabled to employ a qualified and experienced Person, whose sole duty is that of carefully selecting, tasting, and appropriating Teas for consumption. The tollowing are our present quotations :— Black Teas. d. Green Teas. s. a.

EXTRAORDINARY SUCCESS OF THE NEW REMEDY, 17hich has never been known to fail. A Cure effected or the Money returned. DR. DE ROOS' CONCENTRATED GUTTiE VITJ3 has, in all instances, proved a speedy and permanent cure for every Yariety of Disease arising from Sclitary Habits, Youthful delusive Ex cesses', and Infection, such as Gonorrhoea, Syphilis, &c., which from nejlect 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 leucorrhcea or whites, head- ache, giddiness, indigestion, palpitation of the heart, dry cough, lowness of spirits, barrenness, and all disorders of FKMALES, 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, and 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.

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 Renal secretions, thereby preventing the formation of 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. lid,, 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 γ- diseases, the lamentable neglect of which Inordinary medical men, and their futile attempts at cure by Mercury and other equally dan- gerous Medicines, have produced the most alarming results.

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 Times. 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 #f either sex who contemplate marriage.Record. Address—WALTER DE ROOS, M.D., 35, Ely-place, Hol- Ií Hill, London. milE ELEVENTH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING of JL the LIFE ASSOCIATION OF SCOTLAND was held within the Head Office, 2, Hanover Street, Edinburgh, on the 9th instant. Sir JAMES PonREST, Bart., of Comiston, the Chairman of the Society, having taken the chair, intimated that the meeting had been convened in terms of the Society's Contract and Charter, and that the Directors had prepared statements to be laid before the Proprietors of their affairs and transactions during the past year These statements, he confidently hoped, would be considered as highly satisfactory by tne meeting. The Directors' Report for the year ending 5tb April last, with the relative Statements and Balance-sheet, were then read by the Manager. These documents contained full information regarding the Transaction^ Funds, Yearly Revenue, &c., in the various years since the establishment of the Society. During the year "ending 5th April, 1850, there have been issued 732 New Policies for 219,003, the premiums on which amount to £ 8,745 10s. 5d. The New Policies issued during the last four years have been as follows:— Year ending Policies Sums 5th April. Issued. Assured. 1847 157 £ 89,665 1848 300 128,928 1849 496 218,988 1850 732 249,003 The average amount of each Policy on the Society's books is £ 440. The deaths amongst the Assured, during the year ending 5th April, have been 7 per 1000, being considerable lower than the estimated average. A careful investigation of the affairs has been made, and out of the ascertained Surplus, each participating policy-holder of five years' standing will receive back a sum equal to 35 per cent., or 7s. per jEl, of his Annual Premium; or, in other words, in paying his Premium for the current year, only 13s. perjEl will be required. The Chairman then addressed the meeting, and moved that the Report be approved and adopted :—" I trust YOU have now reason to admit that I was not too sanguine in the anticipation I had formed of its favourable reception. You will have observed with "pleasure that the business done by the Association has been steadily advancing during a series of years. During the last four annual periods the number of Policies issued have been re- spectively 157, 300, 496, and 732. The business of the last year— the eleventh since the establishment of the Society—has, it is presumed, exceeded what has been attained by any other Assurance Office in Scotland in its eleventh year. This gratifying result has been .effected, not in ordinary times, but during a "period when all classes of the community were suffering from the effects of commercial depression; and we are, therefore, jus- "tified in anticipating, with some measure of confidence, that our "annual statements will continue to be favourable in the most "propitious times which, I hope, have now arrived. The state- which have been submitted give abundant proof, if any were wanted, of the public confidence in our stability, and of the sonnd- ness and popularity of our principles. Allow me to hope, also, that in the satisfactory state of your affairs, you will see evidence that the Directors have not been inattentive to the duties you have imposed upon them. Large as our business has been, I should inform you that the whole of it, with the exception of a very few transactions, has been effected in England and Scotland. Scotland continues to afford an excellent and increasing business, and England bids fair to be in a very short time a most productive field. The Lon-. don Branch, the establishment of which was last Vear announced, has abundantly fulfilled the expectations we led you to form of its operations, and we are indebted to the London Board for the prudence and diligence they have manifested. With the assistance of the Society's experienced Law Agents, the Directors have succeeded in investing the accumulated funds in a safe and profitable manner. The Investments are yearly in- creasing in importance, and will continue to occupy their con- stant and anxious attention. While on this subject, it may be well to mention that it is not our practice to grant Loans on "Personal Security in connexion with Policies." "JAMES MONCRTEF MBLVILLE, Esq., of Hanlev, having ex- I z, pressed his satisfaction with the state of the Society's affairs, and his confidence in its future prosperity, seconded the motion. The Report was then unanimously adopted. The Vacancies in the Board of Direction were next filled up and after voting thanks to the Office-Bearers and Agents of the Society, and to Sir James Forrest for his conduct in the Chair, the meeting separated.
