A Mr. Thomas Clark, a settler at Curra wang, Lake George, was for a considerable time seriously afflicted with a complaint of his liver, together with the gravel. His medical attendants, after trying all their skill for a considerable time, candidly gave their opinion that his case was hopeless, and declined any further effort as useless. In this situation, and when expecting every day would terminate his earthly career, a friend providentially called on him, and in the course of conversation enquired if he had ever tried Holloway's Pills, which he assured him had cured a friend of his simi larly situated ; he replied that he had not; being...
