REAR 185^ WASHINGTON ST.



For several years past the eating-house of Muhken has
been widely known, not only throughout this city, but
throughout New England. His establishment is undeniably
a favorite resort, as may be proved by an hour's stay in it,
at any time of the day or evening. A continuous stream
of customers it attracts from morning till night, and his
very prompt and efficient assistants give universal satisfac-
tion. There are three particular features about this estab-
lishment, to which we call general attention. It is open all
day and night, so that any citizen or stranger who is benight-
ed and cannot avail himself of his usual abode, can here
find not only good meals at any hour, but likewise a good
bed, and up6n the very lowest terms. Mr. Milliken's ar-
rangement in this respect has met with such favor, as to
induce him to enlarge his lodging apartvients, which are
now very capacious. We wish it to be understood, that
while this is widely known as a cheap eating house, it is a
very popular resort— a circumstance which proves that its
cheapness of prices is not obtained at the expense of the
quality of the food. He has a large number of assistants in
the various departments, and they officiate with great order
and alacrity. There are separate apartments for ladies.
We commend the establishment to the support of all. Mr.
M. is, at the present writing, about to add accomodations
to his already large eating rooms. — Guide.

S. & G. HYDE'S

GARDENS & NURSERIES

Contain nearly 20 acres of ground, and are situated about
one third of a mile southerly from the Newton Corner Depot,
and near the western decli\ ity of the celebrated Nonantum
Hill. In these nurseries are now about ten thousand flou-
rishing apple trees of large size, suitable for transplanting ;
many thousand cherry, plum, peach, and pear trees may
also be found here, of all ages, sizes and varieties.

This place is known by the attractive appellation of
" Hyde Park," and it will probably be a very celebrated
and popular place, as it is in contemplation to lay out the
grounds in parks, avenues, walks, lots, &c., and the natu-
ral situation is such as to render an arrangement of this
kind very advantageous. In these grounds are several
never-failing springs of pure, cool, wholesome, soft water ;
and these may easily be made available both for uise and
ornament.

townsend's sarsaparilla.



TRICKS OF QUACKS.

Let Everybody Read this Page Carefully.

There is a Sarsaparilla for sale in the different
towns, called old Dr. Jacob Townsend's Sarsapa-
rilla. It is advertised as the original, &c. This is
a notorious falsehood. Dr. Townsend has expend-
ed over ^200,000 the last eight years in adver-
tising his Sarsaparilla, which has obtained a char-
acter and reputation throughout the United States
and a greater part of the world — the sale being
enormous.

This excited the cupidity of certain unprincipled
men, and an old man who has been engaged in
peddling cheap publications for a number of years.
This man's name is Jacob Townsend. He applied
to a number of men to get employment, or to sell
the use of his name to put up Dr. Townsend's Sar-
saparilla, stating the large sales and sums we had
expended in advertising as an inducement to em-
bark in the business. Among others he applied to
Charles Watrous, Esq. Editor of the Jamaica
Farmer, who scorned such a proposition. Mr.
H. Q. ANDREWS, formerly one of the proprie-
tors of McALISTER'S OINTMENT, RALPH
POMEROY, formerly Cashier and Financier of
the broken Shin Plaster Bank, at Bellville, New
Jersey, JOHN SKILLMAN, and WM. THOMP-
SON, under the name of THOMPSON, SKILL-
MAN & Co., have employed this old man, and
agreed, as we understand, to pay him seven dol-
lars per week, for the use of his name. These men
have been libelling and insulting us in all possible
forms, in hopes we would notice them, and thus
bring them and their decoction into market. Let
the public decide upon the course of these honest
andhotiorahle men.

They send their stuff off to our agents, and
charge them but ^6,50 per dozen for it, expecting
the agents would sell it, as they would make more
money by selling theirs and deceiving the public ;
but very few have accepted their base proposal — a
few have, and should be watched if they attempt to
sell it as the genuine. We think Merchants or
Druggists who would lend themselves to palm this
stuff off on the public as the genuine and original
Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla, would be base enough
to commit any fraud. None is the original and
genuine unless signed by S. P. Townsend.




DE. TOWNSEND'S

COMPOUND EXTRACT OP

SARSAPARILLA.

Wonder and Blessing of the Age.

The most Extraordinary Medicine in the World.

This extract is put up in Quart Bottles : It is
six times cheaper, pleasanter, and warranted supe-
rior to any sold. It cures without vomiting, purg-
ing, sickening, or debilitating the Patient.

The great beauty and superiority of this Sarsa-
parilla over all other medicines is, that while it
eradicates the disease, it invigorates the body. It
is one of the very best



SPRING AND SUMMER MEDICINES
ever known ; it not only purifies the whole sys-
tem, and strengthens the person, but it creates
new, pure, a7id rich blood : a power possessed by no
other medicine. And in this lies the grand secret
of its wonderful success. It has performed within
the last five years, more than 100,000 cures of se-
vere cases of disease ; at least 15,000 were consid-
ered incurable. It has saved the lives of more
than 5,000 children during the two past seasons.
10,000 CASES OF GENERAL DEBILITY AND
WANT OF NERVOUS ENERGY.

Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla invigorates the
whole system permanently. Those who have
lost fheir muscular energy by the effects of medi-
cine, or indiscretion committed in youth, or the ex-
cessive indulgence of the passions, and brought on
a general physical prostration of the nervous sys-
tem, lassitude, want of ambition, fainting sensa-
tions, premature decay and decline, hastening
towards that fatal disease, Consumption, can be
entirely restored by this pleasant remedy.
CONSUMPTION CURED.

Cleanse and Strengthen. Consumption can be
cured. Bronchitis, Consumption, Liver Complaint,
Colds, Catarrh, Coughs, Asthma, Spitting of Blood,
Soreness in the Chest, Hectic Flush, Night
Sweats, Difficult or Profuse Expectoration, Pain
in the Side, &c., have been and can be cured.
SPITTING BLOOD.

New York, April 28, 1847.

Dk. Townsend — I verily believe that your Sar-
saparilla has been the means, through Providence,
of saving my life. I have for several years had a
bad Cough. It became worse and worse. At last
I raised large quantities of blood, had night sweats,
and was greatly debilitated and reduced, and did
not expect. to live. I have only used your Sarsa-
parilla a sfiort time, and there has a wonderful
change been wrought in me. I am now able to
walk all over the city. I raise no blood, and my
cough has left me. You can well imagine that I
am thankful for these results.
Your obedient servant,

WM. RUSSELL, 6-5 Catherine st.
RHEUMATISM.

This is only one of more than four thousand
cases of Rheumatism that Dr. Townsend's Sarsa-
parilla has cured. The most severe and chronic
cases are weekly eradicated by its extraordinary
virtues. James Cummings, Esq., one of the as-
sistants in the Lunatic Asylum, Blackwell's Is-
land, is the gentleman spoken of in the following

Blackwell's Island, Sept. 14, 1847.
Dr. Totmisetid — Dear Sir : I have suffered terribly
for nine years with the Rheumatism ; considerable
of the time I could not eat, sleep or walk. I had
the utmost distressing pains, and my limbs were
terribly swollen. I have used four bottles of your
Sarsaparilla, and they have done me more than one
thousand dollars worth of good. I am so much
better — indeed, I am entirely relieved. You are
at liberty to use this for the benefit of the afflicted.
Yours, respectfully,

JAMES CUMMINGS.

FITS ! FITS ! FITS !

Dr. Townsend, not having tested his Sarsapa-
rilla in cases of Fits, of course never recommended
it, and was surprised to receive the following from
an intelligent and respectable Farmer in West-
chester County:

Fordham, August 13, 1847.

Dr. Townsend — Dear Sir : I have a little girl sev-
en years of age, who has been several years afflicted
with Fits ; we tried almost everything for her, but
without success ; at last, although we could find



townsend's sarsaparilla.



w



no recommendation in our circulars for cases like
hers, we thought, as she was in very delicate
health, we would give her some of your Sarsa-
parilla, and are very glad we did, for it not only
restored her strength, but she has had no return
of the Fits, to our groat pleasure and surprise, and
is fast becoming rujjged and hearty.

Yours, respectfully, JOHN BUTLER, Jr.
FEMALE MEDICINE.

Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla is a sovereign and
speedy cure for all female complaints, and for the
general prostration of the system. Nothing can
be more surprising than its invigorating effects on
the human frame. Persons all weakness and las-
situde, from taking it, at once become robust and
full of energy under its influence. We can assure
the afflicted that hundreds have been cured after
using a few bottles of this invaluable medicine.
BEAUTY AND HEALTH.

Cosmetics, Chalk, and a variety of preparations
generally in use, when applied to the face, very
soon spoil it of its beauty. They close the pores
of the skin, and check the circulation, which, when
nature is not thwarted by disease or powders, or
the skin inflamed by the alkalies used in soaps,
beautifies its own production in the " human face
divine," as well as in the garden of rich and deli-
cately tinted and variegated flowers. A free, ac-
tive, and healthy circulation of the fluids, or the
coursing of the pure rich blood to the extremities,
is that which paints the countenance in the most
exquisite beauty. It is that which imparts the in-
describable shades and flashes of loveliness that all
admire, but none can describe. This beauty is the
offspring of nature — not of powder or soap. If
there is not a free and healthy circulation, there is
no beauty. If the lady is fair as driven snow, if she
paint, and use cosmetics, and the blood is thick,
cold, and impure, she is not beautiful. If she be
brown or yellow, and there is pure and active blood,
it gives a rich bloom to the cheeks, and a bril-
liancy to the eyes that is fascinating.

This is why the Southern, and especially the
Spanish, ladies are so much admired. Ladies in
the North who take but little exercise, or are con-
fined in close rooms, or have spoiled their com-
plexion by the application of deleterious mixtures,
if they wish to regain elasticity of step, buoyant
spirits, sparkling eyes and beautiful complexions,
they should use Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla.
Thousands who have tried it, are more than satis-
fied, are delighted. Ladies of every station crowd
our office daily.

NOTICE TO THE LADIES.

Those that imitate Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla
have invariably called their stuff a f/reut Remedy
for Females, &c., &c., and have copied our bills and
circulars which relate to the complaints of women,
word for word — other men who put up medicine
have, since the great success of Dr. Townsend's Sar-
saparilla in complaints incident to females, recom-
mended theirs, although previously they did not.
A number of these Mixtures, Pills, &c., are inju-
rious to females, as they aggravate disease, and
undermine the constitution.

SCROFULA CURED.

This certificate conclusively proves that this Sar-
saparilla has perfect control over the most obstinate
diseases of the blood. Three persons cured in one
house is unprecedented.

THREE CHILDREN.

Dr. Townsend : Dear Sir, — I have the pleasure
to inform you that three of my children have been
cured of the Scrofula by the use of your excellent
medicine. They were afflicted very severely with
bad sores ; have taken only four bottles ; it took
them away, for which I feel myself under great ob-
ligation. Yours, respectfully,

ISAAC W. GRAIN, 106 Wooster st.



OPINIONS OP PHYSICIANS.

Dr. Townsend is almost daily receiving orders
from physicians in different parts of the Union.

This is to certify that we, the undersigned. Phy-
sicians of the city of Albany, have, in numerous
cases, prescribed Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla, and
believe it to be one of the most valuable preparations
in the market. H. P. PULING, M. D.

CLERGYMEN AND PHYSICIANS,
As well as thousands of others in all parts of the
United States, are continually sending certificates
and informing us of the benefits derived from using
Dr. Townsend's Sarsaparilla. We can only pub-
lish a few that we received in this vicinity. The
foUomng is a specimen : —

Dr. TowN.SEND : Sir — Some time since, you re-
quested my opinion of the virtues of your Com-
pound Syrup of Sarsaparilla. I am now prepared
to give it. I have used it in my practice and
prescribed it for the last few months, and must
give it my decided preference over anything of
the kind with which I am acquainted, both as
to its medicinal virtues, and reasonable price at
which you sell it. In scrofulous affections, cuta-
neous eruptions generally, dyspepsia, indigestion,
costive habits, and liver complaints, I am much
pleased with its effects. In these complaints, or
any other where Sarsaparilla is indicated, I can
with confidence recommend it to the patronage of
the profession as a valuable auxiliary for removing
disease in some of its most troublesome forms, and
to all as a safe and valuable medicine.

THE BETHEL SHIP.

Dr. S. P. Townsend has received a great number
of certificates from Clergymen, as well as thousands
of others, fully proving that his is the most valu-
able medicine of the age. The following from the
pastor of the Bethel Ship was received this week ;
New York, Sept. 29, 1848.

Dr. Townsend : Dear Sir, — I consider it my duty
to let you know that I received great benefit from
the use of two bottles of your Sarsaparilla. Early
in the spring I suffered from dizziness in my
head, and general prostration, also appearance of
scrofulous affection ; I began to improve imme-
diately upon using your valuable medicine, for
which I give God the gloi-y. Yours, &c..

EX-MEMBER OF CONGRESS.

The following testimonial is from Mr. Van Hou-
ton, formerly M. C. from Rockland Co., N. Y. —
Charlestown, Rockland Co., April 1, 1848.

Dr. Townsend: Dear Sir, — I have been very
seriously afflicted for a number of years, with a
tickling in the ears, drumming and dizziness in the
head, and shooting pains in the limbs, and debility.
I purchased a bottle of your Sarsaparilla, and
thought it helped me. Then I procured a half
dozen bottles, and before I had used it up I was
entirely cured, and think it an excellent medicine,
and well worthy the attention of those that are
afflicted with debility and nervousness.

Clothing dealers will promote their own interest by purchasing Boys' Clothing of us, as
the garments are well shaped and perfectly assorted. The sizes are indicated by numbers,
and a printed tag is attached to each article, so that any one, after becoming familiar with the

USUALLY LARGE ! Having taken advantage of the dull season, we have employed an im-
mense number of the best hands in the city, and at a time when they would otherwise have

a large four-story building, the whole of which is occupied by us for THE DISPLAY OF
