Schoharie Academy. This institution, now ably conducted by Prof. Oren C. SIKES, as Principal, assisted by the most competent ability that can be procured, affords valuable educational advantages, not only to the surrounding country, but to those elsewhere who may desire to attend such a school. Its location, in the village of Schoharie, N. Y., can scarcely be surpassed by any other in the State. Its case of access, it being thirty-five miles from Albany, on the Susquehanna Railroad; its quiet retirement, at a convenient distance from the city; its situation, in the midst of the beautiful Schoharie Valley, so widely noted for its fine mountain scenery and extremely healthful climate, and also for its surpassing advantages of minerals and fossils for the study of Geology, render it pre-eminently a desirable place for such a school. There is an English Department, including the primary as well as the higher branches of study, and a Classical Department, embracing the usual course of preparation for College. Modern languages, Music and other ornamental branches, are provided for, the most thorough instructors being employed. All is constantly under the direct supervison of the Principal, and no effort, will be spared to render this institution fully equal to the best schools of its class, securing to all its pupils a thorough education, as far as they may go, through a careful discipline of the mind, aiming rather at the full developement of the reasoning faculties, than a mere cultivation of the memory.

Or No Charge. __


Has discovered a perfect cure for Cancers without the use of the knife. Thousands of cases cured can testify to the efficacy of this plan of treatment. This preparation will destroy the specific nature of most Cancers in from ten to sixty minutes. Even in those large Cancerous affections of the breast, from which so many females die annually, my specific is equally as effectual as in those smaller surface Cancers. Ninety-nine out of a hundred of all those persons who have died from Cancer, could easily have been cured. Cancer has been considered from time immemorial the greatest scourge of the human race; but the time will come when all shall see that it is as remediable as any other disease. At the same time remedies are given to purify the blood and fortify the system against a renewed attack. In all cases, if the-Cancer-is not too far advanced, a perfect cure is warrented, or no charge. Most persons are greatly deceived in regard to the first symptoms and appearance of Cancer considering it very painful from the commencement. This is a sad mistake (causing the death of thousands,) there being but but little or no pain until the Cancer is far advanced. The only symptoms for months, and in some cases even for years is occasionally either a stinging, itching, smarting, burning, creeping or shooting sensation, and in some cases not even any of these. Nearly all of those kernels or lumps that occur in the female breast, and also those unnatural appearances in the form of crusts or warty excrescence, which appear in either sex on the face, lips, nose, eye lids, or any other part of the surface, are cancers. Cancer is very easily cured in its early stage, consequently it is of the very greatest importance that all thus afflicted should have immediate treatment; as thousands of very valuable lives have been lost from pure neglect, having been misguided by physicians having no knowledge of the disease, who by call it Scrofula, Erysipelas, Salt Rheum or some other non-terrifying disease, lull this unfortunate class in the cradle of ignorance, until upon the very verge of death, when to hide such ignorance, the physician tells the patient that it has finally turned to Cancer, and cannot be cured. There is no such thing as turning to Cancer. Whatever ends in Cancer, began in Cancer. Be no longer deceived. If you have the slightest suspicion of trouble; seek immediate relief and thereby preserve life. Consumption, Bronchitis, Catarrh, Asthma, Heart Disease, Dyspepsia, Liver Complaint, Fits, St. Vitus' Dance, Neuralgia, Scald Head, Piles, Tape Worms, or Worms of any kind, all Diseases of the Skin, Pimples, Scrofula or King's Evil, Fever Sores, Spinal Diseases, Rheumatism, Gout, Dropsey, Diabetes, Kidney Diseases, Gravel, and all Diseases peculiar to Males or Females, successfully treated. Warts, Corns, Bunions, Moles, Wens, Birth-Marks, Tumors &c, removed. Especial attention given to the treatment of Crooked Feet, Legs, Arms, Spine, Neck, and all other deformities. Cross Eyes straightened, Hare-Lips cured by an entirely new plan of operating. Operations for Stone in the Bladder, Polypus, Strangulated Hernia, Fistula or the cure of False and Crooked Joints, and all deformities of the Eye Lids, Nose, Lips, Neck &c., resulting from Burns or Wounds, performed upon the most scientific principles. All Diseases of the Eye and Ear treated with very great success. Especial attention given to the treatment of all diseases originating from the errors of misguided Youth. Patients from a distance, except in Surgical and Cancer cases by sending a full description of their symptoms, can have medicines sent to them by Mail or Express, and be treated at home. All letters promptly answered, and medicines ordered, immediately forwarded.

The Doctor is a graduate with an experience of over fourteen years in the practice of medicine, twelve of which have been spent in Rome.
