little son of Charles H. Burgess, residing on B
street, near Eleventh Btreet, aged one year and
seven months, strayed from the door to the
culvert, at the corner of Eleventh and B streets,
and fell in, and would have drowned had not a
gentleman (whose name I did not learn) been
passing at the time and sprang in and saved the
little child. The gentleman is a resident of this
city. Too much praise cannot be given to such
a humane act. The parents of the little sufferer
feel much gratitude towards the gentleman, and
thank God for his kind providence in sending
one to save tho child from a watery grave. He
has quite recovered.?Intelligencer.
During the severe gale that visited the entire
southern coast on the 24tb and 25th ultimo, the
city of Apalachicola (Florida) was inundated to
such an extent, that many of the warehouses,
private dwellings, &c., were entirely destroyed.
In many parts of the oity the water was from
twelve to fifteen feet deep; and a ship lying in
the West Pass, cotton loaded, was driven by
the violence of the gale up into the city, and
now lies high and dry.- An immense amount
of merchandise has been destroyed', and the loss
will be very great. Fortunately, at this season
of the year, the stook of goods and cotton on
hand is comparatively light

SXIIjU ANOTHER of- ovr most talented and
highly respectable citizens speaks for Hampton's
Baltimore, July 18,1851.
Messrs. Mortimer <? Mtnuhray:?Gentlemen: My daugh
ter having been afflicted Kir more than a year with the
spinal disease, and having tried every remedy that was
prescribed by some of our best physicians, without afford
ing her any apparent relief, I fortunately was advised
by a friend to try a bottle of " Dr. Hampton's Vegetable
Tincture," which relieved her of her pain in less than
twenty-four hours. I um pleased to say that since she
took it she has been free from pain, and she is gradually
gaining strength, which I attribute entirely to the restor
ative properties of this medicine. I believe if it were
more extensively used, it would do more good in the re
moval of such diseases incident to the human family than
what is usually prescribed.

OWING to the late revolutions and counter-revolutions
among the narfons of Europe, which have followed
each other in such quick succession, and of which Uu
end it not yet," the leading periodicals of Grent Britain
have become invested with a degree of interest hitherto
unknown. They occupy a middle ground between the
hasty, disjointed, and necessarily imperfect recordB of the
newspapers, and the elaborate and ponderous tre^its to
lie furnished by the historian at a future day- Whoever
! reads these periodicals obtains a correct and 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 spirit* of the age. The
American publishers therefore deem it proper to call re
newed attention to the works they publish, and the very
low prices at which they are offered to subscribers. lhe
following is their list, vii: .
The London Quarterly Review,
Tub Edinburgh Review,
Tin North British Review,
The Westminster Review, and
Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine.
In thew periodicals are contained the views, moderately
though clearly and firmly expressed, of the three
parties in England?Tory, Whig, and Radical; Black
wood" and the " London Quarterly" are Tory, the Islin
burgh Review" Whig, and the "Westminster Review
Liberal The " North British Review" owes 1U establish
ment to the last great eocleniastical movement in Scotland,
and Is not ultra Yu Its views on any one of the grand da
partmenta of human knowledge. It whs originally edit**
by Dr. Chalmers, and now, since his death, is conduct**
by his son-in-law. Dr. Hanna, associated with Sir Davit
Brewster. It* literary oharacter Is of the very higbes
order. The " Westmiuster," Uiougb rejmntrd under tha
title only, is published in England under the title of tn<
" Foreign Quarterly and Westminster," it being in fact ?
union of tlie two Reviews formerly published and reprinted
under separate titles. It has, therefore, the advantage,by
tliis combination, of uniting in one workflio best feature?
of both, as heretofore issued. .... ? . .
The above Periodicals are reprintedin New ^o^k,imme
diately on their arrival by the British steamers, in a beau
tiful clear type, on fine white paper, and are faithful eo
pies of the originals?Blackwood's Magaline being an ex
act fac timile of the Edinburgh edition.
For any one of the four Reviews, $3 00 per annum.
For any two, do 6 00 ^
For anv three, ao 7 00
For all four of the Reviews, 8 00
For Blackwood's Magazine, 3 00
For Blackwood and tJuree Reviews, 9 00
, y0T Blackwoo<l and four Reviews, 10 00

the kneading troughs of our kitchens. May you live long
to follow your plans.
