Fistula ill Anocured without the
use of' the Knife.
Dr. \V. W. MARSHALL, of Macon, Ga.,
would call llic attention of tiie Public to a
number of certiorates published, and which he
will continue to publish in various papers in the
Slate, of cases of Fistulahured by him. In the
treatment of Fistula, recourse is generally had
to the knife, which is always painful and often
hazardous and very frequently unsuccessful.
than one half of the cases that have
come under his care of late, had been subject to
the knife without experiencing the least benefit,
but rather made worse. They were perfectly
cured by Dr. M. without the use of the knife, or
any such operation, without the least danger, and
with but little or no pain. In most cases the
treatment does not prevent the ordinary pursuits
of business, although the patient is necessarily
obliged to he under the immediate care and su
pervision of the Doctor from one to four weeks,
accordingly as the nature and circumstances of
the case may demand.
Dr. M. does not exaggerate, when he says that
the plan of treatment lie pursues is obliged to
succeed in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred,
if not in every case of Fistula.
Savannah, March 15, 184 ft.
This is to certify that for near fifteen years I
was afflicted with that dreadful disease. Fistula, j
and for the last twelve months suffered so much
pain, as to iucupamtate me almost from atten
ding to my busino®.—During this time l consul
ted several physicians both in this city and
Charleston, and was informed by all of them,
the disease was incurable save by the knife of the
surgeon. Learning the operation was not only
very painful but dangerous and not always suc
cessful, I was very mush opposed to submit to it,
an-J allowed tho disease to progress so far as to
present the alternative to submit to be operated
upon, or die. At this time I saw Dr. Marshall's
card in the Christian Advocate, and communi
cated with him on the subject, and after being
satisfied that lie did cure the disease, I determined
to place myself under his treatment, mid lie com
menced to treat my case. 1 remained there
four weeks and returned home nearly well, and
I am happy now to say entirely restored. I would
no doubt have been entirely well much sooner,
but kept the place irritated from riding every
day on horseback soverl miles. Willi regard to
the Doctor's treatment, it is attended compara
tively with little pain, I was at no time confined
to the bed more than one day, and to the house
lint a very short time. He used no knife, (and
so far as I could judge) no caustic.
I am perfectly satisfied that the Doctor, with
his peculiar mode of practice, can cure the most
cases of Fistula with less pain to the patient, in
a shorter time and with more certainty than any
physician that 1 have heard of, and would with
great confidence, arising from experience, advise
all who are afflicted with this dreadful malady,
not to hesitate but at oneo to place themselves
under his treatment, and I doubt not their most
sanguine expectations will be realized.
It gives me great pleasure to say that in all my
intercourse with Dr. Marshall, 1 found him the
perfect gentleman, and an intelligent, devoted
christaiu. JAS. E GODFREY.

Dr. W. W. Marshall —Dear Sir—Believing
as I do, that you have effectually cured me ol
the Fistula, an exceedingly stubborn, painful
and dangerous disease, 1 take pleasure in contri
buting my mite for the purpose of relieving the
sufferings oftliose who may be afflicted with a
I suffered from the painful effects of this dis
ease for more than two yeurs. Three or four
Physicians, combining the talent of the State,
were employed for my relief, but their united ef
forts were unsuccessful. My health grew worse
and worse—l became debilitated in body and
mind, and my friends entertained fearful appre
hensions of my recovery.
Casually looking over a paper published in
Charleston, S. C., my attention was arrested by a
notice nftho signal professional services of Dr.
W. W. Marshall of effecting a cure in cases of
Fistula, &c. The card purported to effect a
euro without the use of the knife or caustic. I
must-say iny faith was weak, but I resolved to
give him a trial. 1 placed myself under iiis care
and treatment. He lias effected a perfect cure—
my whole frame is invigorated lie has infused'

better convictions are that you have saved me
from an untimely death, which the use of the
knife or caustic could not have prevented but
hastened. Yours, respectfully,

Dear Sir—ln compliance with your request,
I send vou a certificate of the cure which you so 1
soon performed on me,of that dreadful disease
Fistula, and I think there is no person living,
who has greater reason to he grateful for your
kindness than myself, in being cured of that
dreadful disease, which all who saw me, believ
ed if not checked, would in a short time, termin
ate my mortal existence. Sometime, in the
month of April, 1846, a small hard tumor made
its appearance near the verge of the arms, which
in a short time became sort, und discharged at
times a considerable portion of offensive matter,

tinued to decline until some time in tiie month
of March, 1317, when I was confined to niy bed,
without knowing with what disease I was af
flicted, until Dr. William Fisher, of Irwinton,
was called in, and pronounced the disease to be
Fistula in ami.
I then asked the Doctor ifhc thought he could
cure me? —he answered iie thought lie could,
but that I must expect to suffer a long time he
fore he could perform a permanent cure. The
Doctor then commenced treating the case, and
continued to do so for seven weeks, without any
material benefit, and then adv ised me to go to
Macon and place myself under your control, as
lie kne w you from character, to he a gentleman
of intelligence, piety arid experience. 1 accord

is manufactured on the largest scale, and is called for
throughout the length and breadth of the land, especially
as \t is found incapable of degeneration or deterioration.
Unlike young S. I* Townsend’s, it improves with age. and
never changes, hut for the better : because it is prepared on
setentifir. principles by a scientific man. The highest knowl
edge of Chemistry, and the latest discoveries of the art,
have all been brought into requisition in the manufacture
of the Old Dr's Sarsaparilla. The Sarsaparilla root.it is
well known to medical men, contains many medicinal pro
perties, and some properties which are inert or useless, and
others, which if retained in preparing it for use. produce
fermentation and acid, which is injurious to the system.
Some of the properties of Sarsaparilla are so volatile, that
they entirely evaporate and are lost in the preparation, if
they are not preserved by a scientific process, known only
to those experienced in its mnnufactuie. Moreover, these
volatile principles , which fly off in vapor, or as an exhala
tion. under heat, are the very essential medical properties
•if the root, which give to it nil its vhliic.
Any person can boil or stew the root till they get a darfc
eolored liquid, which is more from the coloring matter in
the root than from any thing else: they can then strain
this insipid or vapid liquid, sweeten with sour molasses,
and then call it •*SAK.SAI’AItIIJ.A F.XTKACT or SY

GENUINE OLD DR. JACOB TOWNSEND’S
This is so prepared, that all the inert properties of the
Sarsaparilla root are first removed, every thing capable of
becoming acid or of fermentation, is extracted and rejected;
then every particle of medical virtue is secured in a pure
and concentrated form; and thus it is rendered incapable of
losing any of its valuable and healing properties. Prepared
in this way, it is made the most powerful agent in the
Cure of innumerable diseases.

A Congressional , Agricultural and. Literary
rp||E Editors ofthe Congressional Globe pro
1. pose anew publication. To deserve the
patronage which Congress has accorded to their
reports ofits debates, in receiving and making
the Globe the official register, they intend to add
promptitude to whatever merit has hitherto re
commended the work. They will publish a
Daily Globe, to record the proceedings and de
bates as they occur ; and a Congressional Globe
periodically, as heretofore, embodying the re
ports of Congress separate from the miscellaneous
matter which will accompany them in the daily
print. To fill the sheet of the daily newspaper,
it is designed to gather the news from all quar
ters, and complete the contents by drawing from
every source that may be of most interest among
literary novelties, and of greatest utility in scien
tific and practical works on agriculture. For
material, the leading journals and periodicals of
France and Great Britain, treating of such sub
jects, will be consulted, and, it is hoped, advan
tageously used. Original essays, especially on
topics connected with agriculture, will be obtain
ed from the most enlightened and practical men
of our country.
The Globe, ns a newspaper, and as a vehicle
of information and amusement in other respects,
will he under the charge of Francis P. Blair
and James C. Pickett. The Congressional
department and business concerns of the paper
will be under the management of John C. Rives.
The public are familiar with Blair and Rives as
connected with the press. In introducing Mr.
Pickett as one of the concern, they wil l be al
lowed to say a few words of him. He is a gen
tleman favorable known to the Government, for
talent and judgment which distinguished his di
plomatic service while connected with the mis
sion to Quito ; and more recently when Charge
d’Affaires to Peru. From his pen mainly the
Globe will derive the selections and translations
from the French journals and periodicals, the
comments on them, and the other literary articles
which will he found among its chief attractions.
The Globe will be published daily during the
session of Congress, and Weekly the balance of
the year, and will undergo distribution in the
form of a Weekly Globe, a Congressional Globe
and an Appendix.
The Weekly Globe will he the vehicle of the
miscellaneous articles of the daily print, with a
synopsis of the Congressional proceedings.
The Congressional Globe will embody, as it
has done for the last sixteen years, Congression
al pioceedingsand debates exclusively.
The Appendix will embrace the revised
speeches separately, and the messages of the
President of the United States, and the reports
ofthe H eads ofthe Executive Departments.
The Congressional Globe and Appendix will
be published as fast as the proceedings of Con
gress will make a number. Subscribers may ex
pect one number of each a week during the first
four weeks of a session, and two or three num
bers of each a week afterwards, until the end of
Nothing of a political party aspect will appear
in the Globe save that which will be found in

reflect a party hue. The Editors of the Globe
have borne their share in the party conflicts of
