The Black Hills Exploration.
Despite the depreciatory predictions
of the class of parasites who fatten
upon the government maintenance
of the Indian braves in idleness,
Colonel Custer's expedition has
mused no bloodshed and has awak-
ened no hostility in the regions tra
versed in his march to the Black
Sills. His energetic movement
may, perhaps, inspire a little awe
to the savages who chance to cross
his path, and the reports which we
now receive of rich discoveries of
gold and silver among the moun-
tains by his soldiers shows that it
has already beeu successful in at-
taining its principal object.

Ayer's Ague Cure,
For Fever and Ague, Intermittent Fever,
Chill Fever, Bemittent Fever, Dumb

and indeed all tho affections which arise
from malarious, marsh, or miasmatic
iftli Xo ono remedy is louder
n called lor by tlie necessities ol'
• the American iieople than a
H|k/ sure and safe cure for Fever
IH H J nml Ague. Such we are now
JHL. enalilcd to ofl'er, with a perfect
to certainty that it will eradicate
w the disease, and with assiir-
r.nce, founded on proof, that no luirm can arise
lroni its use in any quantity. .
That which protects from or prevents this dis-
order must be of immense service in the com-
munities where it prevails. Prevention is better
th,hi cure, for the iiatlcnt escapes the risk which
ho must run iu violent attacks of this baleful uis*
temper. This "Curb" expels the miasmatic
poison of Fever and Ague lYom the system,
and prevents the development of the disease, if
taken on the lirst approach of its premonitory
>vmi)toms. It is not onlv the best rewicuy ever
vet discovered for this class of complaints, but
also the cheapest. The large quantity we sup-
ply for a dollar brings it within the reach of
everybody; and in bilious districts, where
Ffvkk and Ague prevails, everybody should
have it, and use it freely, both for cure and pro-
tection. It is hoped this price will place it within
the reach of all —the poor as well as the rich.
\ great superiority of this remedy oyer any
other over discovered for the speedy and certain
cure of Intermittent* is, that it contains no Qui-
nine or mineral; consequently it produces no
quinism or other injurious effect s whatever upon
the constitution. Those cured by it are left as
healthy as if they had never had the disease.
Fever and A rue is not alone the consequence
of the miasmatic poison. A groat variety of dis-
onlcrs arise from its irritation, among winch
are Xenralgi," Rheumatism, Uout, Headache,
Blindness, Toothache. Earache, Catarrh, Asth-
ma, I'alpitation, Paintul Affection of the Spleen,
llv-tcrics, l'ain in the Bowels, Colic, Paralysis,
ami derangement of the Stomach, all of which,
when originating ill this cause, put on the in-
termittent type, or become periodical. This
" CcilK*' expels the poison from the blood, and
consequently cures tliein all alike. It is an in-
valuable protection to immigrants and persons
travelling or temporarily residing in the mala-
rious districts. If taken occasionally or daily
while exposed to tho infection, that will lie ex-
creted from the system, and cannot accumulate
in sufficient quantity to ripen into di-ea-e.
Hence it is even more valuable for protection
than cure: and few will ever suffer from Inter-
mittent-- if they avail themselves of the protec-
tion this remedy affords.
For l.iri r Cnw.plaiHts, arising Iron t- r-iM-
itv of the l.iver, it is an excellent remedy, -tim-
ulating tlie l.iver into healthy activity, and pro-
,1'icin,' many truly remarkable cures, where
oilier mcdiuiics fail.
