This Card is Addressed Specially

TO THOSE WHO ARE

Seeking for Health,

The Cure of Diseases

AND THE RENEWAL OF LIFE.

Dr. HARDMAN'S Pure Remedies :

FIRST— Amber Digesting contains no alcohol in any form. It is purely vegetable,
somewhat bitter,— not unpleasantly so ; is in liquid form, scientifically prepared, and in
action prompt, positive and direct, and is the only blood renovator known. It sweetens
the stomach, removes the cause of foul breath, promotes a natural digestion, tones up the
Liver, expels unhealthy matter, causes the vital blood to circulate freefy in the small blood
vessels, — the seat of nutrition and strength, and removes from the system the very germ
of disease ; and is therefore safe, speedy and reliable for Stomach and Liver Diseases,
indicated by Headache, Indigestion, Bad Breath, Jaundice, Costiveness, Bilious Vomiting,
Biles, Bilious Disorders, Furred Tongue, Loss of Appetite, Worms, &c, &c.

2dL Elixir of Campliori

This almost priceless preparation is a pure nervine, a diffusive stimulant and safe ano-
dyne. It almost instantly relieves pains, removes spasms, cures cramps, warms the
body and equalizes the circulation, and stimulates the system to throw off disease.

It is vastly superior to Hot Drops, Essences, Paregoric, Pain Removers, Soothing
Syrups, Laudanum, Antespasmodics; and removes Stomach, Bowel, Uterine and Menstrual
Pains with astonishing rapidity. (See our circulars for other remedies.)

MOTHERS! READ THIS.

Are your children restless, irritable, wakeful, feverish ? Are they cutting teeth f Are
the gums red and painful ? Have they diarrhoea ? Have they fits or spasms ? If so,

USE THE ORIENTAL SYRUP.

It is the only Syrup or Cordial, or CHILD MEDICINE in market free from Opium, Mor-
phine, or Paragoric. These you can't give ; or, at least, you ought not to. They de-
stroy the functions of the BRAIN ; the child grows pale ; its eyes grow wild ; its flesh
becomes soft ; it loses its mind ; it becomes an Idiot. Mothers, these are facts 1 To be
convinced, try it. The Oriental Syrup contains NONE of those poisons. It is per-
fectly harmless. It is soothing— quieting. The child sleeps sweetly, and awakes refresh-
ed and lively. The teeth penetrate the gums without pain. It is good for aged and ner-
vous people. TRY IT.

THE BALM OE GILEAD !

SIR ASHLEY COOPER, in one of his lectures to his class, says :— I have used the
Balm of Gilead in my practice, in one form or other, for more than forty years • and for
Old Sores or Ulcers, Eruption*, Rheumatism, Burns, Chilblains,
Scalds, Piles, Chafes, &c., it surpasses every other known remedy.

Rosenberger's Balm of Gilead Ointment

Is composed of Oils and Balsams from trees and shrubs, and for all the diseases referred
to by Dr. Cooper, we warrant it almost a specific. For Gall, Grease and
Wounds of Horses, it has no equal. We warrant it; therefore do not hesitate
to try it for every kind of Wound, Bruise or Sore.

ONONDAQA COUNTY. 21



ONONDAGA COUNTY.



THIS COUNT F 'derives its name from the tribe of Ononda-
ga Indians who formeidy inhabited this portion of the old Onondaga
Reservation, being the third of the five great nations formerly unit-
ed for common interest and self-preservation. The Grand Coun-
cil which united the Mohawks, Oneidas, Onondagas, Cayugas and ;
Senecas, was held at the place now known as Liverpool, four miles
from Syracuse, but Onondaga was always considered as the oldest
and most venerated council grounds, where the fires of the nations
united until their alliance with the English in 1665, when they were
induced to remove to Albany, planted the tree of friendship, and,
after a number of years, returned to the old Council Ground again at
Onondaga.

The County was formerly a part of Herkimer, in the original
Military Tract, but became a separate county March 5th, 1394.
Cayuga County was afterwards taken from Onondaga, March 8th,
1799; Cortland April 8th, 1808, as also a part of Oswego, March
1st, 1816. It is centrally located, and its surface is naturally divid-
ed by an east and west line, or rather the base of the Central
Alleghany Mountains apparently ceases here, leaving a fine flat
surface, or, at most, a rolling land towards the north.

The geological formation of the County consists of alternate
strata of shale and lime-stone, overlying each other, in nearly hori-
zontal layers. On the south shore of Oneida Lake, is the Clinton
group of shale, and successively above these, towards the south, the
Niagara lime-stone, the red and green shales and gypsum, belong-
ing to the Onondaga salt-group ; the water-lime group, Oriskany
sand-stone, Onondaga lime-stone, corniferous lime-stone, Seneca

lime-stone, Marcellus shales, Hamilton shales, Tully lime-stone,
Genesee slate and Ithaca shales. The last four mentioned are found
upon the summits of the southern hills. The salt group occupies
the base of the hills, and the lime-stones crop out along their de-
clivities in an east and west line, extending through the center of
the County. The celebrated Onondaga Salt Springs lie in the val-
ley of Onondaga Lake, and the salt water is found above or within
the strata of red shale. The salt wells are 200 to 400 feet deep.
The green shales, embracing the upper formed strata; the magne-
sian or vernicular lime, and large quantities of gypsum in isolated
masses, lie immediately above the red shales, and form the first de-
clivities of the ranges of hills. The gypsum is one of the most im-
portant minerals in the State, and in the regions where it is formed,
numerous tunnel-shaped cavities are met, from 5 to 30 feet deep, and
about the same in circumference, caused by the underlying rocks be-
ing slowly dissolved by the rains. Above these shales is the water-
lime stone, which is used for making cement, when burned and
ground, and was used in constructing the locks on the Erie Canal.
It forms one of the most valuable exports of the County. The On-
ondaga lime-stone is valuable for building purposes, and nearly all
of the lime-stone strata furnish quicklime of a superior quality.
The Hon. George Geddes says, "these systems of rocks constitute
the basis of our soils ; their particles, separated by the action of the
elements, have been decomposed, and in process of time rendered
fruitful. Besides these rocks we have beds of gravel and rounded
