BETTER THAN GOLD !
Portsmouth, July 9, 1861.
Mr. J. E. Bousn?Dear Sir: I feel it a duty to make
known the benefit I have derived from Dr. Hampton's
VEGKTABLK TINCTURE. For a number of years I
suffered from disease, but to a greater degree for the last
three years. One of the forms of ray disease was dyspep
sia. From this dreadful malady I suffered to such an ex
tent that life was really a burden. The attack of it on
me Was different to that on any other person of whom 1
have heard; at times it was like the palpitation of the
heart; there was a constant thumping and beating with
out intermission about the region of my heart, chest, and
stomach; some of the attacks would last for week*; my
stomach was much distended, with constant pain, great
weakness, and constipation of the bowels. 1 could not
eat the most simple food without pain. I also suffered
[ greatly from disease of the kidneys, with constant pain
| in the back, that I could walk only with great difficulty.
I tried nearly all of the most celebrated patent medicines
of tho day, but found no relief. 1 had also the best medi
cal attendance. One of my physicians frankly told me it
1 was of no use for ine to be paying him for advice, as he
| could do mo no good. I gave up almost in despair, and
thought my disease certainly Incurable.
At this juncture I heard of Hampton's Vegetable Tinc
ture. I refused to give it a trial, although persuaded by
ray friend <, until my son purchased a few I Kittles, ami
requested mo to try it; after taking it a few times, It had
a most happy effect on me; my confidence Increased, and
after taking three bottles, my dyspepsia, or disease of the
i stomach, was nearly if not entirely cured. 1 now feel
' myself a new man, and In better health than for years.
I I am certain the cure in my case was made by this Hamp
ton's Vegetable Tincture alone. Since my cure I have
recommended the tincture to a numlier of my friends,
I who have also been relieved by it. Some of the cures
have been as rapid and equally wonderful as mine.
I present my respects to Messrs. Mortimer A Mowbray,
the proprietors of this valuable medicine, and say to them
its value is abort price; and from my cure, and what I
have seen of its effects on others, I shall ever feel it my
duty to recommend it to the suffering. I have no doubt
many valuable lives will be prolonged by Itsnse. I hope
the afflicted will cast a*lde their prqjudiccs and give it a
trial. Yours most respectfully, (Signed)
Jolt!* Li lt I.
Tho above Is extracted from a letter from a gentleman
Sixty years of age, and of high character. He says : " I
have given but a faint idea of my sufferings; I feel inad
equate to the task." We also have received, in the last |
few days, letters from two of our most worthy and well- !
known citizens, giving two remarkable cures of spinal |
disease. But yesterday one of the oldest merchants re- j
ported that lie was cured of neuralgia of the head, of
years standing, and so bad that his teeth fell oat from its
effects. Call ami see letters. Was there ever so many
cures, wonderful cures, made by any other medicine.
All we ask of the afflicted is that they try Hampton's
Vegetable Tincture, the great purifier of the blood and
rure for all chronic diseases, as dyspepsia, rheumatism,
scrofula, and all complaints of the stomach, bowels, Ac.

GEORGETOWN AND JTS AFFAIRS.
Gkoroktown, September 29?12 m.
The strong easterly winds which prevailed
here for several days caused tho tide to rise in
our harbor to an unusual height on Saturday
night and Sunday morning, overflowing many
of the wharves, and damaging slightly several
hundred barrels of flour, besides floating a con
siderable quantity of lumber, &c.
The enterprising owner of tho packet-boat
Fashion will start to-day another boat, to leave
Georgetown for Cumberland at 7 o'clock, p. m.
The proprietor of this line, (Mr. Ward,) with a
determination to accommodate the public, in
tends, in a few weeks, to place upon the route
i four first-class boats, so as to have a daily line
| through the entire length of tho canal.
In a conversation this morning with farmerB

I was informed that the drought had been so
great in that section of country that many of
the wells had failed entirely, and in many places
the farmers were unable to seed their grain.

on Saturday afternoon of 200 barrels flour at
$3.87?. This morning, buyers are offering
$3.75, and sellers nsking $3.81J. A sale of

' The supply of butter by wagons, this morn
ing, was rather limited, amounting in all to five
or Bix thousand pounds, which sold at prices
ranging from 18 to 19?c. per pound.
We were visited on Saturday and Saturday
night with several heavy showers of rain, which
have completely laid the dust and made the at- j
mospliere delightfully pleasant.

VEGETABLE TINCTURE:
Baltimore. July 18,1851.
Messrs. Mortimer rf Mowbray:?Gentlemen: My daugh
ter having been afflicted for 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. Ilumpton's Vegetable
Tincture," which relieved her of her pain in less than
twenty-four hours. I am pleased to say that sinco 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 incldout to the human family than
what is usually prescribed.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Robert Kerr,

adapted for its suppression; and will enforce the duty of

fuse the knowledge of our Arts, Liberty, and Christianity,
among the barbarous people of that Continent.

useftil Family Newspaper, and to secure for Its columns,
as the public fnvor shall enable them, contributions, lite
rary and scientific, of decided merit.

Home Journal or National Bra, and exceed In size the
Intrlligencer or the Union of this city; and, with but few
advertisements, will bo nearly filled with matter designed
to l>e of interest to its readers.

and, in mechanical execution, be equal to the best news
papers in the country.

year, payable in advance.

voluntary agents, will be responsible to those who mar

BLACKWOOD'S MAGAZINE^ ~
AND TUB
BRITISH QUARTERLY REVIEWS.
OWING to the ' volutions and counter-revolutions
among th* ;* of Europe, which have followed
each other In su succession, and of which " tht
end is not yet," t ling periodicals of Great Britain
have become inve.^ii ll with a decree of interest hitherto
unknown. They occupy a middle ground between the
hasty, disjointed, and necessarily imperfect records of the
newspapers, nnd the elalKirate and ponderous trenties to
bo furnished by the historian at a future day. Whoever
roads these periodicals obtains a correct and connected ac
count of all the important political events of tho Old
World, as they occur, and learns the various conclusions
drawn from them by tho leading spirits of the age. The
American publishers therefore deem it proper to call re
newed attention to the works they publish, and the vory
low prices at which thoy are offered to subscribers. The
following Is their list, viz:
Tub London Quartkuy lUvirw,
Th* Edinburgh Revikw,
The North British Kxvizw,
Tub Westminstkr Rxvixw, and
Blackwood's Edinburgh Maqaxini.
In these periodicals are contained the views, moderately
though clearly and firmly expressed, of the three greatest
partios in England?Tory, Whig, and Radical; " Black
wood" and the " Ijondon 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 not ultra in Its viyws on any one of the grand de
partment* of human knowledge. It was originally edited
by Dr. Chalmers, and now, since his death, is conducted
by his son-in-law, Dr. Ilanna, associated with Sir David
Brewster. Its literary character is of the very highest
order. The "Westminster," though reprinted uuder that
title only, is published in England under tho title of the
" Foreign Quarterly and Westminster," it being in fart a
union of the two Reviews formerly published and reprinted
under separate titles. It has, therefore, the advantuge, by
this combination, of uniting in one work the best features
of both, as heretofore issued.
The above Periodicals are reprinted in New York, imme
diately on their arrival by the British steamers, in a beau
tiful clear type, on fine white paper, aud an; faithful co
pies of the originals?Blackwood's .'Magazine being an ex
act fac simile of the Edinburgh edition.
TBKMS:
For any one of the four Reviews, $3 00 per annum.
For any two, do 6 00 "
For any three, do 7 00 "
For all four of the Reviews, 8 00 "
For Blackwood's Magazine, 8 00 "
For Hlackwood and three Reviews, 9 00 "
For Blackwood and four Reviews, 10 00 '?
