THE constantly increasing demand for the above Waters, have, as might naturally be expected, produced a num- ber of Rivals and Competitors, some of whom, both in the Metropolis and in the provinces, attempt an ephemeral celebrity, by surreptitiously assuming the name of the above Firm, both on their bottles and labels.

This Institution is empowered by a Special Act of Parliament, and is so constituted as to afford the benefits of Life Assurance in their fullest extent to Policv-Hohiers, and to present greater facilities and accommodation than are usually offered by other Companies. The decided superiority of its plan, and its claim to public prcfcvcnce and support, have been proved incoutestably, by its extraordinary alld unpircedented success. A ssurances may either he effected by Parlies on their own Lives, or by Parties interested therein on the Lives of others The efirct of an Assurance on a person's own life is to create at once a Property in Reversion, which can by no other means be realized. Take, for instance, the case of a person at the age of Thirty, who by the payment of 51. 3s. 4tl. to the Britannia Life Assuiance Company, can become at once possess. d of a hI quealhahle property, amounting to WOOL., subject only to the condition of his continuing the same payment quarterly during the remainder of his life,-a condition which may be fulfi led by the mere saving of EIGIIT SHILLINGS weekly in his expenditure Thlls, by the exertion of a very slight degree of economy-snch indeed, as can scarcely be ft,1t as an inconvenience, he may at once realize a capital of 10001., which he can bequeath or dis- pose of in any way he may think proper.

Pront 229, Strand, Frimlry, near Ragslfot, Surrey, FdHuary l4-th. 181-2. CJIR—Having suffered much f/f% k"} from acute Rheumatism, ll' filly 1 was induced ttv try your Blair's ""S- Pills. and beg to bear my humble   testimony to their efncacy, not     own case, but in several of my friends who have taken them on my recommenda tion. I am, Sir, your obliged, JOHN GILES. The never-failing effects of Blaii's Gout and Hheumatic Pills, curing every description of Gout or B helllllatism, has secured to them a celebrity unequalled by any medicine of past or present times. They not only give rdief in a few hours, where the patient has been driven nearly to madness by excruciating tor- tures, but restore to perfect health in an inconceivably shott space of time. See Testimonials of Lieut. Masters (of Hawley, near Bagshot), late at the Royal Newfoundland Veteran Companies, who was invalided home by a garrison order; the Rev. Dr. Blom- herg the Chevalier de la Garde; Mr. Miskin, Dartford; Mrs. Chambers, Maidstone, &c., &c., which demonstrate this prepa- ration to be one of the greatest discoveries in Medicine. They are equally speedy and certain in Rheumatism, either chronic or acute, lumbago, sciatica, pains in the head and face, and indeed for every rheumatic or gouty affection in fact, such has been the rapidity, perfect ease, and complete safety of this medicine, that it has astonished all who have taken it, and there is not a city, town, or village in the kingdom, hut contains many grateful evidences of the benign influence of this medicine. The efficacy of Blair's Gout and Hheumatic Pills is unparalleled for I the foregoing diseases, and it must be consolatory to the afflicts d with Gout to be assured that it possesses the property of prevent ing the disease flying to the stomach, brain, or other vital part.

Stephens, druggist, Merthyr fydvil Mr. Phillips, Cardiff; Mr. Farror, Monmouth Mr. Williams, Brecon; Mr. Williams, Newport and all respectable Medicine Venders throughout the united Kingdom.
