Edited by R. H. HORNE. Esq., Author of "Cosmo de' Medici." "The Death of Mar- lowe," &c. richly illustrated with many Hundred En- gravings on wood, after designs by Raffet Horace Vernet, Jacque, &c. This Work has originated in the belief that the great mass of the English People are imperfectly acquainted with the History and Character of Napoleon Bonaparte. Very partial accounts, characterised by extreme eulogy or extreme condemnation, have been diffused in a limited circle, and published at too high a price, and in too voluminous a form, to place them within the means of the General Reader. The object of the work now submitted to the Public is to give an impartial digest of all the best of the numerous publications concerning Napoleon; which digest will be condensed into One Volume. The style of the Engravings and Printing, and the quality of the Paper, will be such as to render the Work one of the choicest specimens of the Typographic Art. To be completed in about Forty-eight Weekly Numbers, price Sixpence each; or Twelve Monthly Parts, price Two Shillings each. Books of Devotion.

PERRY & Co., SURGEONS, 4, Great Charles Street, Birmingham; 23, Slater Street, Liverpool; and 2, Bale Street, Manchester; and given gratis with each Box of PERRY'S PURIFYING SPECIFIC PILLS Price 2s. 9d 4a. 6d. and 11,. per Bori CONTAINING a C full description of the above complaint, ILLUSTRATED BY ENGRAVINGS, shew- ing the different stages of this deplorable and j&k often fatal disease, as |Rr well as the dreadful Y effects arising from the use of mercury, accom- panied with plain and practical directions, for an effectual and speedy cure with ease, secrecy and safety, without the aid of medical assistance. PERRY'S PURIFYING SPECIFIC PILLS, price 2s.9d., 4«. 6d.and I Is. per Box, are well known throughout Europe and America, to be the most certain and effectual cure ever discovered for every stage and symptom of the Venereal Disease, in both sexes, including Gonorrhaea, Gleets, Secondary Symptoms, Strictures, Seminal Weak. ness, Deficiency, and all the Diseases of the Urinary Passages, without loss of time, confinement, or hind- rance from business they have effected the most sur- prising cures, not only in recent and severe cases, but when salivation and all other means have failed; and when an early application is made to these Pills for the cure of the Venereal Disease, frequently contracted in a moment of inebriety, the eradication is generally com- pleted in a few days; and in the more advanced and inveterate stages of venereal infeetion, characterized by a variety of painful and distressing symptoms, a perse- verance in the Specific pills) and to the directions fully pointed out in the Treatise, will ensure to the patient a permanent and radical cure. It is a melancholy fact that thousands fall victims to this horrid disease, owing to the unskilfulness of illiterate men, who by the use of that deadly poison, mercury, ruin the constitution, cause ulceration, blotches on the head, face, and body, dimness of sight, noise in the ears, deaf' ness, obstinate gleets, nodes on the shin bones, ulcerated sore throats, diseased nose, with nocturnal pains in the head and limbs, till at length a general debility and de- cay of the constitution ensues, and a melancholy death puts a period to their dreadful sunerings. In those dreadful cases of sexual debility, brought on by an early and indiscriminate iudulgence ofthe passions frequently acquired without the knowledge of the dread- ful consequences resulting therefrom, and which not only entail on its votaries all the enervating imbecilities of old age, and occasion the necessity of renouncing the felicities of marriage to those who have given way to this delusive and destructive habit, but weaken and destroy all the bodily senses, producing melancholy, deficiency, and a numerous train of nervous affections. In these distressiug cases, whether the consequence of such baneful habits, or any other cause, a certain and speedy cure may be re- lied on by taking Perry's Purifying Specific Pills/and by a strict attention to the directions pointed out in the Treatise, which fully explains the dreadful results arising from these melancholy cases. e Messrs Perry and Co., Surgeons, may be consulted as usual at No. 4, Great Charles Street, Birmingham, and 23, Slater Street, Liverpool.

LAIR'S GOUT BAND RHEU- MATIC PILLS. Copy of a Lelterfrom the Chevalier De la Garde. Chamberlain to Stanislaus, late King of Poland. ToM rProu t ,229,Strand. No. 20, Vere Dec. 11, 1838. SI R,-I feel myself bound by the duty I owe to my fellow-creatures to request that you will pub- lish the following most extraordinary effects of BLAIR'S GOUT AND RHEUMATIC PILLS. For a period of 30 years I have suffered more than I can well express but at all times have avoided taking advertised remedies, having a powerful antipathy to them, until a few months since, after having been laid up for 22 weeks of an attack of Rheumatic Gout, princi- pally confined to the feet, but at times it travelled to various parts of the frame, and then returning again with accumulated force to the extremities, and to such a degree that I was delirious for five days and nights. I now say that, fortunately I was induced to try BLAIR'S GOUT AND RHEUMATIC PILLS and, with truth, I assure yourself and the public that, in less than 24 hours, I was free from pain; and by the time I had taken half a box the inflammation and swelling had disappeared. I have the pleasure of adding that my general health hu to no way suffered, and that the effects of Blair's Pills were imperceptible. I am. Sir, your obedient servant, THE CHEVALIER DE LA GARDE. The testimonials of the astonishing effects of this Medicine are universally accompanied by the fact, that no inconvenience of any sort intends its administration, but that the patient, without feeling the operation of the medicine, is universally left in a atronger and better state of health than experienced previous to being afflicted with this disease; and in all cases of acute suffering, great relief is obtained in a few hours, and a cure is generally effected in two or three days. This valuable discovery ia sold by Thomas Prout, 229, Strand, London and, by his appointment, bv
