"I labor for the good time coming, when sickness and disease, except congenital, or from accidental causes, will be regarded as the result of ignorance and animalism, and will degrade the individual in the estimation of all good men, as much as drunkenness now does."

"We consume too much food, and too little pure air. "We take too much medicine, and too little exercise."

The design of this Publication is the diffusion of useful knowledge, in familiar terms, as to two points:—

How To Cube Disease, Without Medicine, In Many Instances.

How To Peevent Sickness, By The Eational Use Of Food, Aie, And Exercise:

The Editor desires that a copy of it shall be taken, and read, and studied, and re-read, and preserved, by every Clergyman, by every Theological Student, by every Lawyer, and by every young Man and young Woman in the land, who is now in process of obtaining an education:

This will not be attempted by Lectures on Physiology and Hygiene, but by such practical illustrations as a Physician's note-book daily affords. To show how the every-day occurrences of life are fraught with death, simply from inattention, or from ignorance of some one of the plainest laws of our being, but which no opportunity of learning has ever occurred, from the nursery to the time of entering on the active duties of life.

Multitudes of parents throughout this land daily feel the bitterness of the premature death of a promising son or only daughter, from one of the thousand slight causes of disease, which a little knowledge or precaution would have rendered harmless.

Emma B, aged 18, was caught in a slight shower while riding on horseback to a Fourth of July celebration; but she had been in worse showers before, without the slightest injury; but ignorance of the peculiar circumstances, resulted in her death in the course of the next year.

A. B., a man of strong, robust health, seldom known to be sick, had undergone great fatigue, and, at the close of a hot summer's day, hungry and exhausted, he ate a hearty meal, and added to it fruits and iced milk—and died the next day of cholera morbus. He might have still lived, had he been aware of the fact, that a hearty meal in midsummer, in an exhausted condition of body, would be sufficient to destroy three men out of four.

A lady ran after an orange man on a rainy day in November; the distance was longer than she supposed; and, tired and sweaty, she returned to her companions, to cross the Delaware in an open boat: when she readied the other side, she found herself thoroughly chilled— and died of a rapid declineIt is by illustrations such as these, constantly pressed upon the attention, with the explanations necessary, to show how such results necessarily follow such causes, that the Editor hopes to impart knowledge which will avert the wreck and ruin of many a fine constitution. The instructions imparted in the Journal will be derived from the personal observation of the Editor—from standard medical works—and from eminent medical men now living. It is. not designed that any medical recipe shall ever appear in these pages, nor to recommend any preparation to be taken internally, nor any contrivance to be worn externally—all such things being, in his estimation, frauds upon the com. munity.

The Editor believes that man is an omniverous animal; that whatever possesses healthful nutriment may be eaten.

This paper is sent to persons who may be supposed willing to read the Journal themselves, or to place it in the hand of some son or daughter as "their Journal," and thus give them an interest in its monthly visit, and, by degrees, teach them the method best calculated to preserve to them a good constitution to a green old age. The best earthly inheritance known to men, is, To Be Old, And To Be Well.

Terms—One Dollar a year, always in advance. When the year expires, the Journal will not be continued, unless expressly desired, in a post-paid letter, containing the subscription price.

Subscriptions not taken for less than one year, which will end in December of each year.

Back numbers furnished to new subscribers until the supply is exhausted; when that is the case, as much will be charged for the fraction of a year, as will be proportionaLj

SubsjriptionB may be handed in at J. S. REDFrELo's Book-Store, 1.10 and 112 Nassau-Street .

Any person sending five dollars, will have six copies sent to any desired address, for one year; thirty copies for twenty dollars.

May not the reader accomplish a life-long good by making up a list of paying subscribers from among friends, within a week after receiving this?

All communications must be post-paid, to secure any attention— \ddressed simply to
