As a Sjiying- or J a'«' purifier, it haa given new consti-tutt -ns to tiious-in.l* ; it is by its operatian on the Mood that such surprising cures have bekti performed on those who were supposed to be laboring under pulmonary aflVctioni, N.C. itc.  1 ho eft'tct- of this medicine is such as not to inter- r upt either business or pleasure, and requires only the common restraint c.f moderation in diet. It is conveyed by 'he circulating fluids, and correc's their tendencies the rumerous disea-es which originate in vitiated t>!»td, diseased liver, or depraved appetite.

This Medicine has tbe singular fortune—a just tribute to its great m.-ri', nfb«-i g rccomtrended bv the greatest Practitioners of Medicine in the United States and cl-ewbere, whereas m.t one of the spurious tr x-tures made in imitation of it, has the least support from • he medical faculty. This fact offers an argument so plain and conclusive, that it needs only be mentioned to enforce conviction.  From Dr. Wm. price, formerly Surgeon of tbe Pennsylvania Hospital, &c.  Liverpool C Eng. j Sept. 1823. The Vege able Syrup, called Swain»'* panacea, prepared by Mr. Swaim, of Philadelphia, has recently been introduced here by Dr. Price, from the United S ates of America, where it is new extensively used in 'h* treatment of a variety of Chronic Diseases.  Of the efficacy oft is preparation, Dr. Price has had abund*nt and most satisfactory evidence, during» course of experiment« made u»der bis direction, whim Surgeon of the Pennsylvania Hospital  ;  and nnce h'w arrival i - E gland, be has had the good fortune of witnessing many additional instances of its successful administration.  The diseases in which ihi* Medicine has been particu-cularly us-ful, are those arising from constitutional caus-t-—as in the various lortns of Scrofula, whether affect-mg the bones, joints, or soft parts ; and in cases where a disposition to 'his disease is manifested &y debility on. ly i: operates as a p eventi»« to the local disease by its De^ticinl effects on the constitution. It is equally effi cacious in Mercurial disease, and 1« the seconda'y forms or s> plnii«, and has lately been given w«th marked sac. ces< m chronic d seases of the Liver, which had rasinied tt.e cartful ;xbibitmn of mercury.

WM PH1CE, M. D.  TO TBS PUBLIC.  The numerous and multiplying frauds committed on the public, by numerous mixtures in imitation of this well kn wn Medicine, are alone satisfactory evidence of its superior virtue, without any other proof.
