GEORGETOWN AND ITS AFFAIRS.
GaoftaaTowif, August 21?12 m.
The magnificent packet boat Delaware pawed
up the canal thin morning, for the first time,
with a company of ladies and gentlemen, bound
for the Great Fulls, on a pleasure excursion.
Quite a large number of persons gathered along
the canul wharves to see her start, and all ap
peared highly pleased when she floated oft' in
beautiful style, with the broad stripes and
bright stars fiying at her bows.
Yesterday we had a gloomy, wot time of it,
and but little business of uny kind was trans
acted. This morning, however, things look
more cheerful, and all along our streets may be
seen suspended in front of the stores the va
rious emblems of trade. Along the wharves it
looks rather dull, owing to the fact that there
is not to bo found at them u single one of either
line of packets, or any other largo vessels, all
having been loaded immediately upon their last
arrival with Hour, grain, &o.
Owing to the unfavorable state of the weather
yesterday, there was no transactions of moment
in flour or grain.
Tho packet-boat Fashion arrived hero last
night at eight o'clock, with quite a largo num
ber of passengers on board.

A Novel Demonstration of the Eaiitii's
Rotation.?Messrs. Editors: Tho phenomenon
of the whirlpool in a funnel, always moving in
the same direction, if not counteracted, has long
been a subject of unsuccessful investigation
among scientific men. The public will be pleased
to learn that the Rev. E. D. Saunders, of Potts
ville, lias submitted a demonstration of the
principle to the Academy of Natural Science of
Philadelphia. It traces tho cause to the earth's
rotation. That we should have so simple and
beautiful an illustration of the earth's movement
is unexpected. The demonstration will appear
in the next number of the academy's proceed
ings. It differs materially from the solution of
the problem of the pendulum, and of Professor
Strong's wheel, as the motion to be accounted
for is in the opposite direction.

HAMPTON'S VEGETABLE TINCTURE. It is a certain
curc for Dyspepsia, Scrofula, Liver Complaint, Ac., and
all diseases from impure blood.
Baltimore, Juno 4,1851.
Mr. Stockbridge of the fountain Ilotelj Light street, Balti
more.
Dear Sir: Being on the point of leaving tho city, I
avail myself of a few idlo moments to thank you kindly
for the medicine you sent mo, and which has restored me
to the use of my limbs. I bog you to send me four hot
ties more, to carry on my voyage. Since I had tho for
tune to use Dr. Hampton's Vegetablo Tincture my confi
dence is go strong that, in gratitudo to tho proprietors of
said medicine, I beg you to present my rospects to them,
and Induce them to make it more publicly known as a
sure Rheumatic euro. Having called on me on the 19th
of April last, and seen me prostrated on my bed, useless
In all my limbs, you can appreciate nearly as well as my
self tho prompt relief I received from Dr. Hampton's
Tincture, and I am positive had it not been for your
strong aud forcible rocoinmuudations I should still hare
been in bod.
It is really a pity this specific should not be approved
by medical men, and like all patentdrugs it should suffer
the imputation the public generally give to such prepara
tions. I mysolf, who was always opposed to a patented
specific, took this modtcino with reluctance, and without
Confidence in it, and it was only through your disinterest
ed, friendly recommendations, and my critical situation,
that induced mo to try this really beneficial Vegetable
Tincture.
You may inform Messrs. Mortimer A Mowbray that
they are at liberty to make use of my name in the sup
port of tho good effects of Dr. Hampton's Vegetablo Tino
ture, as it has cured me, in five weeks, of a chronic /?
JUtminatory Rheumatism, contracted under trojrical cli
mates, and of seven years' periodical duratvm. I haTe only
usod three bottles, and find that even the deformed parts
of my luinds are fast returning to their former natural
appearance.
1 have been under tho treatment of several physicians
In London and Paris, without any apparent benefit; also,
while in Now York, having tried the Thompsonian and
Homn-pathic remedies, after having been tormented with
galvauic batteries, cold and aromatic baths, and hundred*
of internal and external medicines, all to no effect. I
am, so far, cured by this Hampton's Vegetablo Tiucture
only. Therefore, my dear sir, aocept of the assurance of
my gratitude, and believe mo your well-wisher.

WONDERFUL CURE OF IIKRKPTTARY SCROFULA !
This certificate is from the pen of a gentleman whose
name appears on the journal of Congrew?one who is ex
tensively and favorably known:
It affords me pleasure to stato that Dr. Jesse Hamp
ton's Tincture has elfocted a most extraordinary euro of
my slave boy Albert. The patient was three years old,
aud had the Scrofula?{his Cither is scrbftilous.) The boy
was a moving mass of sores from head to foot; tho upper
lids of the eyes were much swollen, ami turned inside out,
exhibiting horrible mattering ulcers, that protruded over
tho eye-ball so as to producc blindness. It is strange, vet
true, this child?that I felt resigned to see die as a relief
from suffering?has been restored to health under the
treatment of Dr. Hampton. W. P. TIlOMASON.
Louisville, March 20,1861.
Wo have a lar^c number of certificates from our most
respectable citiieus attesting cures made by this celebra
ted Tincture of most every disease that " flesh is heir to."
After all other remedies have failed, we ask the afflict*d
to call on the Agents and get pamphlets with certificates
of cures. MORTIMER A MOWBRAY,

uervant girl to wake him in the afternoon As
he was going up stairs, he turned and told the
irlrl that it was his intention to frighten her
and the oouipanion who slept with her, b?fore
his mother returned home. She begged him
not to, for the other girl was very nervous, and
uhe might go into convulsions. He laugneu
und passed on. He and his father were the
only members of the family at home. At the
appointed time the servant went up stairs to
awaken him, and found his body hanging. In
the third story of the house is a staple in the
wall, to which is allixed a clothes-line, which,
when not in use, is allowed to fall behind a
bureau. Directly under this is a mahogany
chair, with one of its legs broken. Ihere was
no doubt in the minds of the coroner and jury,
that llobert saw this line as he went up stairs,
and to frighten the girl about the time that she
was to awaken him, ho stood on the chair, wtli
the noose about his neck, in such a position
that it might appear he was about to hang him
self. The broken chair canted, and the fatal
termination came. That he made despeiate
efforts to extricate himself, is evident from tho
marks of his hands on the bureau, and of his
fingers on his neck.?Boston Courier.

BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE,
AND TUB
BRITISH QUARTERLY REVIEWS.
OWING to the lat* revolutions and counter revolutions
among the natious of Europe, which have followed
each other in such quick succession, end of which " the
end is not yet," the leading periodicals of Great Britain
have become invested with a degree of Interest hitherto
unknown. They occupy a middle grouud between the
hasty, disjointed, aud necessarily imperfect records of the
newspapers, and the elaborate and ponderous treaties to
be furnished by the historian at a future day. Whoever
reads these periodicals obtains a correct aud connected ac
count of all the Important political events of the Old
World, as they occur, and learns the various conclusions
drawn from them by the leading Bplrits of the age. l"e
American publishers therefore deem It proper to call re
newed attention to the workB they publish, a?:d the very
low prices at which they are offered to subscribers. 1 he
following is their list, viz:
This London Quarterly IUviiW,
The Edinburgh Review,
The North British Review,
Ti Westminster Review, and
Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine.
In these periodicals are contained the views, moderately
though clearly and firmly expressed, of the three greatest
parties in England?Tory, Whig, and Radical; " Black
wood" and the " London Quarterly" are Tory, the " Edin
burgh Review" Whig, and the "Westminster Review"
Liberal. The " North British Review" owes Its establish
ment to the last great ecclesiastical movement in Scotland,
and is uot ultra in Its views on any one of the grand de
partments of human kuowledge. It was originally edited
by Dr. Chalmers, and now, since his death, is conducted
by hl? son-iu-law. Dr. llanna, associated with Sir David
Brewster. Its literary character is of the very highest
order The " Westminster," though rejtrinlrd under that
title only, is published in England uuder the title of the
" Foreign Quarterly and Westminster," it being In fact a
uulou of the two Review!' formerly published and reprinted
under separate titles. 11 has, therefore, the iuIvantage, by
this combination, of uniting in one work the best features
of both, as heretofore issued.
The above Periodicals are reprinted in New Vork, imme
diately on their arrival by the British steamers, in a beau
tiful clear type, on tine white paper, and are faithful co
pies of the originals?Blackwood's Magazine being an ex
act foe simile of the Ediuburgh editiou.

Mr. Robert Sean?Dear Sir: I have looked oyer the en

of literary labor you have performed, and the research it
must have cost you to obtain so many fine illustrations,
while you have an active superintendence of an extensive

religious influence which your books will exort, and can
not but hope that they will do much to counteract tin
effects of that light and immoral literature which delugei
the land, and, like the frogs of Egypt, comes up even U
the kneading troughs of our kitchens. May you live lon^
to follow your plans.
Respectfully and sincerely, your obliged servant,
