PERRY and Co., on the outside of each wrapper), A RE wellkuown throughout Europe and America, i*- to be the most certain and effectual cure ever dis- covered for every stage and symptom of the Venereal Disease, in both sexes, including Gonorrhoea, Gleets, Secondary Symptoms, Strictures, Seminal Weakness, Deficiency, and all diseases of the Urinary Passages, with out loss of time, confinement, orhindrance from business They have effected the most surprising cures not only in recent and severe cases, but when salvation and all other means have fzsiled and are of the utmost import- ancc to those afflicted with Scorbutic Affections, Eruptions in any part of the body, Ulcerations, Scrofulous or Vene- real Taint, being justly calculated to cleanse the blood from all foulness, counteract every morbid affection, and restore weak and emacipated constitutions to pristine health and vigour. They are particularly recommpnded to be taken before persons enter into the matrimonial state, lest the indis- cretions of a parent are the source of vexation to him the remainder of his existence by afflicting his innocent hut unfortuuate offspring, with the evil eruptions of a malig- nant tendency, and a variety of other complaints, that are most assuredly introduced by the same neslect and imprudence. The Cordial Balm of Syriacum is intended 10 relieve those persons, who, by an immo- derate indulgence 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 affec- tions of the nervous system, obstinate gleets, excesses, irregularity, obstructions, weaknesses, total impotencv, barrenness, &c. A perseverance in its use has been the happy means of relieving many thousands, and of restor ing a great number to the permanent enjoyment of life It is remarkable for its cfficacy in all disorders of the digestive organs, and is especially recommended to those, who, from the irregularities of youthful age, habits of studious application, or a life of pleasure, have fallen into a despondent state of mind, and that distressing train of symptoms commonly denominated the nervous. In such persons the mental are not less enfeebled than the cor- poreal, and to them a remedy that acts with efficacy, without interfering with domestic habits, is peculiar!v desirable.

R J^HE CREDITORS who have proved their DEBTS under a COMMISSION of BANKRUPTCY, bear- ing date the Eighteenth day of SEPTEMBER, 1823, awarded and issued forth against JOHN WOOD. of the Town of Cardiff, in the County of G!amorgan, Banker, Dealer, and Chapman, are requested to meet the As- signees of the Estate and Effects of the said Bankrupt, on MONDAY, the Eighth day of NOVEMBER next, at Ten of the Clock in the Forenoon, at the Office of Ir THOMAS DALTON, Solicitor, at Cardiff aforesaid, in o.der to assent to or dissent from an Arrangement pro- posed to be entered into for the Settlement, by the said Assignees, of all Outstanding Accounts between them and Messrs.Ct-RTIS & Co., as Mortgagees of the said Bank. rupt's Estate, to assent to or dissent from tfie said Assignees settling by Arbitration or otherwise as they may think fit, the several Bills of Costs due and owing to Messrs. BA'-SETT, the late Solicitors to the said Com- mission or either of them, and also to assent to or dissent from the said Assignees selling either by Public Auction or,Private Contract, or partly by Public Ntiction and partly by Private Contract, all such parts of the said Bankrupt's real and Personal Estate as now remain unsold, at such lime and place or times and places, and iu such manner, and either to the said Bankrupt or to any other Person or Persons, and upon such Terms and Conditions as the said Assignees may deem meet, advan- tageous or proper, with a view to a settlement of the matters connected with the said Bankruptcy, and on other Special matters. THOMAS DALTON, Solicitor to the Assignees, COPAIBA.—Upon reviewing the catalogue of I evils produced by Copaiba, it may be fairly asked is there any one possessed of common prudence who would employ it ? Can any unprejudiced and conscien- tious person advise its use ? Are we to do harm that good may come ?" Any more in physic than morality, when too the former is certain, and the latter more than doubtful-for we must not forget that Copaiba is as uncertain as it is initirioiis-at one time appearing to suddenly check and overcome the disease, and at another entirely failing in producing either. It is also decf ptive as regards the permanency of the desired effect. The patient frequently rejoicing in his supposed recovery, and in a few days. or even hours, is sadly disappointed by the return of his complaint with renewed or increased virulence—the symptoms being much agsravated by the consequent loss of time and the unequal action of the medicine. It is now clearly the duty of the medical profession to avoid and reprobate the use of a drug which has so little to justify its administration, and so much to condemn it. If such baneful effects as described are to be attributed to the pure Balsam of Copaiba, it can be readily imagined how much they are aggravated by the adul- terations daily practised, being mixed with more or less of turpentine, mast;che, rejected castor and rape oils, &c. &c. It is to the uninitiated perfectly astonishing to what an extent this disgraceful practice is carried, more especially since the nostrums formed from it have so mnch increased. It is frequently to be purchased in this state at retail druggists for less than the cost p.ice of the genuine article,-a strong proof that such MUN he factitious;—indeed it is a fact that this natitral pro- duciion of South America is actually made in England. Not many years since the Sun Fiie Office refused to indemnify a party for loss by fire, on the ground that the premises had been used for hazardous purposes, not expressed in the policy, namely, that of making Copaiba. Such being the fact of the drug itself, the argument will, of course, apply with more or les3 force to ail prepara- tions of or from it, for so powerful are its injurious properties, and so closely are they connected wilh those (if auy} of a beneficial tendency, that to abate the one is to annihilate the other. As existing in nature, they are allied; and by such nifcty of chemical union, that to separate them is (by destroying the original principle dr combination) —- lo produce a most unhappy result, namely, an inert substance, and one still more acrid than the drug in its natural state; one OF these is pro- duced when deprived, or partially so, of its nauseous flavour; to deprive it of which is to separate the active principle, and thus destroy all chance of success from its use. NOW, HOW is this known result attempted to be avoided ? By incurring a still greater evil-that of com- bining with it equally injurious, though more palatable, drugs, as Spanish flies, potash, stimulating giims, &-c., hy winch the original disease is greatly aggravated and prolonged. IN conclusion,—avoid, at all times, and under all disguises, this pernicious and ever-adulterated drug; MI fife r not any oac to persuade you to its use withhold from your confidence the professional man who persists, contrary to reason and experience, in prescribing if for yoti-for, be assured, sooner or later, more or less, you will suffer from its baneful influence. The Balsamic Pills, prepared by Mr. Wray, 344, Strand, and Holborn Hill, are free from any of the above objections; ihey act specifically on the urinary passages, and from their tonic properties, tend to strengthen the system and improve the general health. They requite neither confinement nor alteration of diet (except ab- stinence frotu stimulants, where considetable inflam- mation exists), and) as experience has amply proved, they will efiect a cure sooner than copaiha (the dan- gerous results of which, in the inflammatory stages, are too well known to need further comment), or anv other medicine in present use, and may be justly considered (he only safe and efficacious remedy in all stages of those disorders. In addition to these advantages, the very convenient form in which this invaluable preparation is offered to the public must also be considered a desi- deratum. Prepared only by M. O. Wray, and sold wholesale snd retail, at 118, Holborn Hill; and 314, Strand, one iloor from Catherine Street; AND for the accommodation of Strippers and Seafaring people, at No. 8, Uarkhouse Lane, Eower Thames Street.

HORTICULTURAL 'NOTICE FOR OCTO- BER. While we write the ground is in the condition of a swamp, deluged with the massive showers which have occurred at short intervals, siuce Wednesday, the 22d September. Our first remark will apply to the Equi- nox, the sun having entered into the autumnal sign- Libra-on the 23d. The wind was south by west, the air soft and temperate, barometer 29 50, weather showery. If these phenomena be received as prog- nostics, they indicate a mild and perhaps rainy winter; it is well to solicit inquiry and observation, and we therefore allude to the foregoing facts: At present the gardener can do littlef good by operating on the ground; but we expect a change, and hope to be favoured by two or three weeks of fine October wea- ther, wherein every department can be brought into complete order. In the meantime every intrusive weed and tuft of grass should be removed from the walks after which the iron roller should be passed and repassed over them, to bring the gravel or other material to a firm condition. Grass lawus should be swept and rolled, then mowed for the last time, and kept neat by re- peated sweepings and rollings. Leaves are considered as so much litter, and so they are on lawns and walks; but they are very valuable on the surface of shrubbery plots; and being forked in when half decayed, produce a natural manure. Collected in heaps they become a durable source of heat to linings and hot-beds, and decay into most valuable leaf niould hence, leaves should never be destroyed. Kilchtn Garden.—One of the chief operations of the season is the digging of potatoes. We have re- marked that the ash-leaf kidneys left in the ground, which were in perfect condition a month since, show a disposition to sprout, and are less mealy in texiure: the extreme heat of the sun in September brought tho ground to a high temperature, and the succeeding rain has produced vegetation. This effect should act as a caution, and induce persons to remove their earliest stock before the haulin be quite dead. Medium crops are safed, and should be digged, dried, and housed at oycry favourable interval. 1 he land ought then to beelTectually cleared from tubers; and—if not wanted for the cabbage tribe-be set up in ridges for tbu winter; or Cabbage of the August sowing can be set in shal- low drills on the site, the ground being previously manured the plauting being effected drill by drill, in succession, as the digging proceeds. Nitrate of soda, half an ounce to a square yard, is a safe and often very effectual application. Broccolis, in rows, trenches, or plots, should bo earthed up. Asparagus beds or rows, cleared, dressed with. manure, and covered with fine earth; thus enrich- ment, protection, and neatness,, in this valuable de- partment, will at once be effected. Sea-kale leaves, as they decay, must be removed or buried in a trench, as they are very offensive, and the spaces between the rows should be weeded. Tho earliest crop for forcing may now be proceeded with; the very best apparatus we have ever seen is a trough constructed of common slabs, slightly nailed to posts, the space 24 inches wide at tho grouiid-i)eirly as deep, contracting to 18 inches at top openings over each plant are left, and fitted with loose boards. This trough, surrounded by warm, littery dung, and leaves, answers every purpose, costs little, and saves all breakage of pots. Artichokes, if ready, should also be winter-dressed by the end of October. Take the crops of scarlet and variegated runner-beans continually, and the season bids fair to indulge us long with this choice legume. Cauliflower plants must be placed early in frames, or under glasses. Beans and Peas.-Sow the first crops, but be not sanguine of success; sometimes, as those of 1840, a famous early gathering is the result. Sow Kidney Beans in pots for forcing. FItUIT DEPARTMENT. Apples.—Gather those which are perfectly ripn. and store them without litter of any kind, in a dry, dark room. Keeping-pears must be ripe, but tho better sorts like warmth, and as they do not emit so powerful an odour as apples may be stored in a room of the dwelling. Fruit, to keep well, must be as ripe as the season will render it before it is plucked, Vines.-A few grapes ripen well on the wall, but the bulk is a failure. June ruined the blossoms, and half the bevries Wiere not impregnated. Prune the trees as soon as possible to give them a chance of early fruiting in 1842. In the late Vinery-a dry house, air in warm days, and not a drop of water, are essentials to the preser- vation of the crop. If damp prevail, the grapes will be mouldy; occasional fires and ventilation are also useful. The Pine Stove, for winter and early spring fruit, must be in brisk action; that for summer fruit will be kept cool and dry succession plants will reqnire a warm, moist, growing atmosphere in pits. Fires will be occasionally required in the plant- stove, the heat of which ought not to be under 50 degrees. The Greenhouse must be ventilated freely, and little water given, none in the evenings, decreasing the supply as light diminishes. Take cuttings of calceolarias, penstemons, helio- tropo, scarlet gerania, and keep them cool all winter heat operates ill at this season. Camellias may now be propagated by cuttings, placed in sand nnd heath soil, in a cool frame, shaded they will not take root, but the leaves are preserved, and thus a slow, imperceptible process goes on which terminates in a ring of callus at the heel, from which roots protrude in the spring. Pinks and carnations that have taken root should be potted, and preserved in frames, some also may be reserved for early forcing. A few plants of all the. best shrubs, calceolarias, &c., ought to be potted, to furnish a supply of spring cuttings. Perennial herbaceous plants may be divided and placed where they will flower next season. In doing this work, the bed3 and borders ought to be manured, dressed with fresh loam, decayed leaves, old cow dung, or other dress at command, to enrich or raise the surface, which then should be neatly rough-digged, and planted as the work proceeds. All kinds of trees, flowering shrubs, and plants may now be safely introduced, and box edgings made or regulated.
CREDULITY.-A party of gipsies who have been lately hauuting the neighbourhood of Carmarthen, called on Tuesday last at the house of a respectable farmer, whose name we would be sorry to mention, and inquired of him if any thing had been stolen from him, they were able by the black art, of which they were most perfect meters, to find out the thief; ho replied he lost some property two or three yeais ago. They then asked for twenty sovereigns, which wera produced, and after repeating" presto" three times, wrapped them in a parcel, which they desired him to place in a box, and on locking the same to lay the key under his pillow for two days and nights, saying the name of tho thief would appear on opening tho charmed packet. The farmer credulously did as di- rected, but on opening the parcel, instead of revealing the thief's address, there appeared to his astonished gaze twenty half-pence, which the impostors had contrived to substitute for the gold. Rees, the County Constable, is in pursuit of the vagabonds. DEAHl OF DR. FKAMCIA, DICTATOR. OF PARA- CPAV.—Dr' Francia, the author, and up to within the last few weeks, the inflexible upholder of the non- intercourse policy of Paraguay, has, by his death, removed the only obstacle to free trade upon the river Parana, and other parts of the rich kingdom of Paraguay. This singular man now rests in the quiet of the grave, having been tottering on its verge for the last three years. Before his time the chiefs of the South American republics, who, under the name of Presidents, had more than the power of kings, suc- ceeded each other with less than the brief sovereignty of Lord Mayors of London. Francia was the first who h:id the skill to fix himself steadfastly in power, and to retain it against all other men in the state. A LOFTY ABODE.—Tbe highest inhabited place upon the face of the globe is a farm-house situate 13,500 feet above the level of the sea, or about two miles and a half above that level. This lofty and elevated habitation is situate on the highest peak of the Andes, in South America, Chimborazo, which rises to 21,410 feet above the level of the sea, It may be truly said that the dwellers in this farm-house are accustomed to, and move in," high life,"
