The most remarkable part of his case is this—his finger and toe nails , which had become so diseaseds that they were quite unsightly , have beeh replaced b y new and perfect ones .

Aug . 27 th , 1841 . "Gentlemen , —Were I to enumerate all the Cures and Benefits obtained by ; . taking- this famous remedy ( and are offered to me ) , it would require a book as large as a Church Bible to write them in ! Not a day passes'but some one comes to acknowledge the blessings of a cure—some one being made free in their limbs from pain and rheumatism , some cured of sick head-ache of long standing , some from violent bilious attacks , others cured of the ague , of swelled legs , and sprelegS i for curing the palpitation of the heart , and , wonderful to relate ! old men and women : say , since they took Old Parr ' s Pills , they have enjoyed better health , better spirits , better appetite , had more nerve and strength than they had experienced for the past twenty years , and that Old Parr is like new life to them , for they feel all those delightful changes in the system . Ia fact , these wonderful Pills appear to contain all the virtues of the ' pothecaries shop , without haying to go through all the regular doses of draughts and boluses . "My sale , instead of decreasing , increases . Since last August , when I receiVedthe first supply of Parr ' s Life Pills ( with the four gross yoiimay now send me by first conveyance ) , I have had 2 , 076 boxes at Is . l ^ d ., and 264 of the 2 s . 9 d . size .

E IFTEEN LESSONS ON THE ANALOGY AND SYNTAX OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE , for the use of adult persons who haye neglected the study of Grammar , BY WILLIAM HILL . The Lessons in this Work , are intended solely for the use of natives . They are divested , therefore , of all those hair ' s-breadth distinctibas and unnecessary subdivisions in Analogy , which , if at all useful , can only be aseful to foreigners . The soience of Grammar is disentangledV in this Work from the folds of mysticism which have so long enshrouded it . The absurd and unmeaning technicalities , which : pervade all other Works on Grammar , are exchanged for terms which have a definite and precise meaning , illustrative of the things they represent . The Parts : of Speech are arranged on an entirely new principle , fouaded on a Philosophical Consideration of the Nature of Language , and ^ applicable to all Languages . The necessary Divisions and Subdivisions are rationally accounted for ; and the Principles of Universal Grammar demonstrated , so fully that the meanest capacity may understand them as clearly as it understands that two arid two make four , ' " . . - ¦ ' . i .. ; , " \ . . -:- ' - \ "" ' - . ¦ ' ¦ ¦ ¦ ¦' ¦ ¦ ' ¦ :. . " . - . "' "¦• ' "'¦ ¦ ¦ . ' ¦ ¦ '¦ ' ¦ ' ::- ¦¦ ¦ In Syntax , the formation ^ of . the English Language is exclusively consuHed , without any unnecessary reference toother Languages . A majority of the numerous Rules given in most Grammars are shown to be little better than a heap of senseless Tautology . The necessary Rules are demonstrated upon rational Principles * and illustrated by a variety of Example . By the Use of this Book and its accompanying Exercises , any person may , in a few weeks , acquire a good knowledge of Grammar without any of the disgusting drudgery , which , under the present SyBtem ; prevents nine out of ten from ever acquiring a knowledge of Grammar at all . THE FOLLOWING TESTIMONIALS OF THE PRESS , Seleoted from a host of similar ones , may . convey some idea of the public estimation in which this Work is holden ;—" Mr . Hill is evidently an original thinker . He attacks , with ability and success , the existing system of English Grammar , and points but the absurdities with which At is eacumbered . Justly condemning the too frequent practice of making pupils commit portions of Grammar to memory as tasks , he maintains that the only proper way to the memorjr ; is through the understanding . .. . It is but justice to him to say that , in a few pages , he gives a more clear and comprehensive view of the Struoture ef the English language than can be found n somei very elaborate works .

THE CORDIAL BALM OF SYIllACtJM Is a gentle stimulant and renovator of the impaired functions of life , and is exclusively directed to tho cure of such complaints as arise , from a disorganization of the Generative System , whether constitutional or acquired , loss of sexual power , and debility arising , from Syphiltib disease ; and is calculated to afford decided relief to those who , by early indulgence in > solitary habits , have weakened the powers of their system , and fallen into a state ef chronio debility , by which the constitution is left in a deplorable state , and that nervous mentality kept up which places the individual in a state of anxiety for the remainder of life . The consequences arising from this dangerous practice are not confined to its pure physical result , but branch to moral ones ; leading the excited , deviating mind into a fertile field of seductive error —into a gradual but total degradation of manhoodinto a pernicious application of those inherent rights whioh'nature wisely instituted for the preservation , of her species ; bringing ba premature decripitude , and all the habitudes of old age : —such a one carries with hi ^ i the form and aspect of other men , but without the vigour and energy of that season which his early * youth bade him hope to attain . How many men cease to be men , or at least , cease to enjoy manhood at thirty ? How many at eighteea receive the impression of the seeds of Syphilitic disease itself % the" consequences of which travel but of the ordinary track of bodily ailment , covering the frame with disgusting evidences of its ruthless nature , and impregnating the wholesnme stream of life with mortal poison ; conveying into families the seeds of disunion arid , unhappiness ; undermining domestic harmony ; and striking at the very soul of human intercourse . -The fearfully abused powers of the human Generatiye System require the most cautious preservation ; and the debility and disease resulting from early indiscretion demand , for the cure of those dreadful evils , that such medicine should be employed that ia most certain to be successful . It is for these cases Messrs . Perry and Co ., particularly designed their CORDIAL BALM OF SYRIACUM which ia intended to relieve those persons ; who ; by an immoderate iudulgehce of their passions , have ruined their constitutions , or in their way to the consummation of that deplorable state , are affected with any of those previous symptoms that betray its approach , as ; the various affections of the nervous Bystem , bbstinate gleets , excesses , wregularity , obstructions of certain evacuations , weakness , total impotehcy ; barrenness , &c . : ¦' : : '¦ -: ' . / ¦¦ .-.-: '• ; ' /> - '" :- ' . r ¦ ; . - ; - . ¦ - As " nothing can be better adapted to hty » nd nourish the constitution , so there is nothing more generally acknowledged to be peculiarly efiicacious in all inward wastiags , loss of appetite , indigestion , depression of spirits , trembling or shaking of the harids or limbs , obstinate coughs , shortness of breath , or consumptive habits , it possesses wonderful efficacy in all cases of syphilis , fits , head-ache , weakness , neayiness and lowness of spirits , dimness of sight , confused thoughts , wandering of the mind , vapours arid melancholy | and all kinds of hysteric complaints are gradually moved by its use . And even where the disease of Sterility appears to have taken the firmest hold of the female constitution , the softning tonic qualities of the Cordial Balm of Syriacum will warm and purify the blood , and juices , increase the aniinal spirits , invigorate and revive the whole animal machine , and remove the usual impedi-• mentjtomaternity . ; ^ ¦ - --This medicine is particularly recommended to be taken before persons enter into the Matrimonial State , lest in the event of procreation occurring , the innocent offspring should bear enstamped upon it the physical characters derivable from parentel debility , or evil , eruptions of a vmalignant tendency , that are most assuredly introduced by the same neglect and imprudence . : ' .

Brother Chartists , having been elected by your suffrage to meet in Burnley this day , Dec 19 , 1841 , for the purpose of to&iiig into our most BeriouB conaderation the propriety and necessity of establishing a paper for the northern division of this county , in order tiat we may more effectually diffuse that political knowledge amongst the working and middle classes of society , whkbis ^ o essentially necessary for the political redemption of our common country ; we / therefore , enu to * n unanimous decision to , use our Straost exertions to carry out the above-named object ; ve , therefore , appeal to yon- the members of the Ka&onal Cbarter Association in North Lancashire , to give us all the support yon possible can . We are aware that a great number of you are out of employment ,
sad bondreds of the members of out association are in a state of utter starvation ; and that misery , destitution , and wretchedness are the order of the day amongst the ¦ waiting class , whilst the privileged classes are living in luxuriant idleness , ' —are consuming the wealth produced by . the working men , whilst they add nothing to the national wealth . We behold a Queen adorned hi all the pomp of royalty , idolised by the nincompoops of » dissolute aristocracy , dressed in all the gew-gaw trappings of a tomfool , taking annually from the " the pockets of the people upwards of £ 500 , 000 for her support , or as much as a man could earn in 20 ,-000 yean , if he received fer his labour ten shillings per week , or £ 25 per year , whilst thousands of British subjects are living upon no more than one penny per day per bead ; and yet we are told by the Iron Date , and the Spinning-Jenny Baronet , that there 1 b no distress existing amongst the working das . These men have wrung fortunes from the blood , bones , and sinews-of
tbe working class , and yet they can tell us that they intend to bring forward no measure for our relief , but tkat of a system of transportation ; but , fellow-working men , we appeal to you for support , that we may be ssabled to carry ~ Into every nook , comer , and cranny of car country , the principle of our gloriour Charter , and enable us to destroy that faction that would now , be-. ; cause you are poor , send you like felons into a foreign country , that you might eke out a miserable existence ! "Yes , Englishmen , yon are to be torn from all that is < iear to you ; you must no more look upon the cottage , that gave you birth—no more view the fields in which you have rambled in childhood—no more associate with tbe playmates of your boyhood , but you must be . separated from all the endearing ties of nature , in order to ^ s&Sify tie > desfcr » yiBg propensities of a crew- of —wholesale robbers and brigands , who live and fatten upon corruption ; but *> i * tiV God their occupation , like Othello ' s , is gone .
Working men , you all determine no longer to submit to" their tyrannical sway , but in the dignity of your manhood , you have nobly demanded your Charter , and have 8 worn before God , and on the altar of your country ^ that you will not rest satisfied until you have obtained your Cbarter—the panacea for all your evils . "We appeal to you to use your best exertions as Boon as passible , to collect the required sum for the support of the forthcoming Convention , that that body , when they meet , may see by the alacrity you have used , that they have your undivided support , so that it will enable them to demand boldly your right , that has been so long unjustly withheld fromyouby a few designing knaves .
In conclusion , we urge you to keep up the agitation , suite in one common bond of union—let your energies "be concentrated in one grand focus ; then , by your union aid strength , you may enable your Convention and Executive to finally ; beat down corruption under your feet , and for ever to establish universal liberty—the f * u *« of the British Constitution . Tour most humble and obedient servants , : -. Jas . Moose , Wh . Bettley .

DUBtlN . —The Irish Universal Suffrage Association jnet on Sunday last , at their great room , No . 14 , North Ann-Btrett , Mr . P . Holden in the chair . The Secretary read the minutes of the last meeting ; he also read letters from Mr . John Frazer , Glasgow , and Mr . J . R . H . ' Bairstow , Leicester—the latter gentleman requesting to be admitted an honorary member . He also read a letter from Mr . James Ward , MacelesSeld , containing the names of eight persons resident in that town , and requesting that they might be admitted members . Mr . O'Higgins proposed the admission of Mr . Philip Brannon , of Walton Common , Isle of Wight He read an excellent letter from that gentleman , enclosing his subscription to the association , and requesting the honour of being admitted a member . ^ Mr . O'Higgins said
that this was the gentleman whom the soi disani Rer formers of Belfast have vilified and traduced ; and who were , he regretted to say , aided by that portion of the press in Belfast which was called Liberal . Mr . R . Dunn seconded the motion . Mr . M . Relly , in a very eloquent speech , depicted the evils of the present system , and reprobated the conduct of those who called themselves the friends of Ireland , whose every act was for their own and against their country ' s interest He concluded by moving that Mr . John Toolebe admitted a member . Mr . O'Higgins said he was exceedingly rejeiced at the opportunity afforded him of seconding the admission of Mr . Toole , particularly as Mr . Teole was one of those who gave their Society considerable opposition upon one or two
occasions last summer , under a mistaken notion respecting its objects ; but that his opposition partook mere of a spirit of inquiry than that factious and turbulent opposition which others thought proper to adopt It was , therefore , plain to every one that Mr .. Toole had joined the - Association from a conviction of its having a greater tendency to promote the welfare of the working classes of Ireland without reference to sect or paity . The accession of a man who had become , like Mr . Toole , convinced of the advantages the country would derive from the spreading of tfeeir principles before he joined the society , was woith a score of men who might join them either hastily or inconsiderately . Mr . Corbett said , he thought the day for opposition was gone by ; the Irish Universal Suffrage Association were not
now afraid of any opposition ; for his part , he courted it , and though but on humble working man , lie would not be the least daunted to meet any of those who had denounced them as being a body of men opposed to the interests of Ireland ; he was a Catholic and a Munsterman , and he repudiated the unchristian threat of bringing over five hundred thousand Munster men to cut down theirEnglisb Protestant brethren for no other reason than that of having formed a Chartist Association , the orjec ^ of which he' knew to be that of obtaining the rights of the working classes , in the benefits of which his countrymen would be equal participators . ( Hear . ) Mr . John Toole rose and said he thanked the meeting most sincerely for admitting him a member of their Association . He came forward to join them after
havmg given their principles the most mature consideraj tion . He had been a member of Beveral associations , J but he never joined one with the same kind of feeling i which he did that of the Irish Universal Suffrage Ai-¦ sociation . ( Hear , hear . ) He saw that their object was '¦ to promote the general happiness of their country . I Other political societies were agitating the country ; from centre to surface for the purpose of promoting i their own personal ambition , without wmfttng any effort ; to promote the interests or ameliorate the hard condii . tion of the working man . The Chartists were not seek-I ing places eitber for themselves or their relations , as tbe leaders of all other associations were . Their bitterest opponents were obliged to give them « redit for I integrity of purpose and consistency . They were
opposed and would be opposed by Whig and Tory , and all the place- hunters and followers of these two great factions , who , no matter how much opposed in other matters , joined most ; cordially in resisting the rights of the people . The association had only to go on as it had heretofore done , and the whole country would soon join it , because it waa now pretty generally admitted that their society wai strictly lawful in every respect , notwithstanding all that was said about its unlawfulness , for no other purpose than that of detering timid men from joining their ranks . ( Hear , hear . ) The question of *« . * ing Fishshamble-street Theatre was
again brought forward , upon which an animated discussion easued , in which Messrs . Brophy , Dillon , O'Connell , ( not Dan , ) O'Higgins , M'Cartan , M'Mahon , Relly , and several others took a prominent part The propriety of taking the Theatre was urged upon the ground that th ? treasurer had , after clearing all expences for the part half year , sufficient funds on hand for that purpose . It was ultimately agreed upon that the question should be brought forward formally , and after dne notice . Mr . John Toole was called to th 6 chair , and the thanks of the meeting were given to Mr Holden , for his impartial conduct therein , when th meeting separated .
WINDSOR . —Strike of the London Masons .

William Melville , of Markinch , to represent this county ia the National Meeting of Scottish Delegates , to be held in Glasgow , on Monday , the 3 rd of January , and following days . " 2 nd . " That , while we regret that the English Executive did not consult their Scottish brethren in the drawing up of a National Petition , we are of opinion that under existing circumstances , seeing that the petition drawn up by them , and published in the Northern
Star , has been universally adopted throughout England , and also in Beveral parts of Scotland , it would be much better , for the purpose of securing unanimity , that the National Petition should be adopted as it now stands : that we hereby approve of that Petition , and request Mr . Melville to support its adoption in . its pre ^ sent form . " 3 rd . "That we request Mr . Melville to vote and protest against the introduction of any discussion in the Convention relative to the bugbear of physical or moral force , as we are of opinion that every such discussion tends to weaken our forces by creating unnecessary division .
