Portsmouth, July 9,1851.
Mr. J. E. Boi'SH?Dear Sir: I feel it a duty to make
known the benefit I have derived from Dr. Hampton's
VEGETABLE TINCTURE. For a number of years 1
suffered from disease, but to a greater degree for the last
three year*. One of the forms of ray disease was dyspep
sia. From this dreadful malady I suffered to suc h an ex
tent that life was really a burden. The attack of It on
me was different to that bn any other person of whom 1
have heard; at times it was like the palpitation of the
heart; thero was a constant thumping and beating with
out intermission about the region of my hoart, chest, and
stomach; somo of the attacks would last for weeks ; my
?tomnrh was much distended, with constant pain, great
weakness, and constipation of the bowel*. I could not
eat the most simple food without pain. I also suffered
greatly from disease of the kidneys, with constant pain
in the bark, thst I could walk only with great difficulty.
I tried nearly all of the most eelebratz-d patent medicine*
of the day, but fbund no relief. I had also the best medi
cal attendance. One of my physicians frankly told me it
was of no use for me to tie paying him for advice, as he
could do me 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
my friends, until my son purchased a few tiottles, and
requested me to try Itafter taking it a few times, it hail
a most happy effect On me ; my confidence increased, and
after taking three bottles, my dyspepsia, or disease of the
stomach, was nearly If not entirely cured. I now feel
myself a new man, and In better health than for years.
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 friend*,
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 i* above price; and from my cure, and what 1
have seen of its effects on others, I shall ever feel it my
duty to r<sv>mmend it to the suffering. I have no doubt
many valuable lives will lie prolonged by it* use. 1 hope
the afflicted will cast aside their prejudices and give it a
trial. Yours most respectfully, (Signed)
John Lvkc.
The above Is extracted from a letter from a gentlemnn
sixty years of age, ?nd 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 Inst
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
ported that, he wss cured of neuralgia of the head, of
years standing, and so bad that his teeth fell out from its
effects. Call and see letters. Was them ever so ninny
cures, wonderful cures, innde by any other medicine.
All we ask of the afflicted is that they try Hampton's
Vegetable Tincture, the great purifier of the blood nnd
cure for all chronic diseases, as dyspepsia, rheumatism,
scrofula, and all oomplaints of the stomach, bowels, Ac.

ments for and against it; so that when the time
arrives for action, we may act understandingly
in the premises.

but found it to be impossible, 'house rent, ser
vants, horses, board, washing and wine included,'
to spend more than ?40 a year."

Messrs. Mortimer d'? Mowbray:?Gentlemen: My daugh
ter having been affiicted for more than a year with the
spinal disease, and having tried every remedy that wns
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. 1 am 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 huuiau family than
what Is usually prescribed.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

OWING to the lato revolutions and counter-rpvolutioiiF
among the nations of Europe, which have followed
each other in such quick succession, and of which " the
end. is not yet," tho leading periodicals of Great Britain
have become invested with a degree of interest hitherto
unknown. They occupy a middle ground between the
hasty, disjointed, and necessarily imperfect records of the
newspapers, and the elaborate and ponderous treaties t/",
be furnished by the historian at a future day. Whov,ex
reads these periodicals obtains a correct and (.onnec^^j (ir.
count of all the important political events of the Old
World, as they occur, and learns the various conclusions
drawn frora them by the leading spirits of t'no age. The
American publishers therefore deem it PToper to call re
newed attention to the works they publish, and the very
low prices at which they are offered to subscribers. The
following is their list, viz:
The London Quartehi.t Review,
The Edinburgh Review,
The North British Review,
The Westminster Review, and
Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine.
In these periodicals are contained tho views, moderately
though clearly and firmly expressed, of tho throe 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, I
and is not ultra in its views on any one of the grand de
partments of human knowledge. It was originally edited
by Dr. Chalmers, and now, since his death, is conducted
by his son-in-law, Dr. Hanna, associated with Sir David
Brewster. Its literary character is of the very highest
order. The "Westminster," though reprinted under that
title only, is published in England under the title of the
" Foreign Quarterly and Westminster," it being in fact a
union of the two Reviews formerly published and reprinted
under separate titles. It has, therefore, the ad van tage, by
this combination, of uniting in one work the best features
of !?oth, as heretofore issued.
The abovo Periodicals are reprinted in New York,imme
diately on their arrival by the British steamers, in a beau
tiful clear typo, on fine white paper, and are faithful co
pies of the originals?Blackwood's Magazine being an ex
act foe simile of tho Edinburgh edition. *
For any one of the four Reviews, $3 00 per annum.
For any two, do 6 00 44
For any three, do 7 00 "
For all four of the Reviews, 8 00 "
For Blackwood's Magazine, 3 00 "

Amlierst College, Dec. 25, 1848.
Mr. Robert Sear*?-Dear Sir : 1 have looked over tho en
tire series of your valuable publications with much in
terest and profit; and am quite surprised at the amount
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
business. 1 am also gratified at the decidedly moral and
religious influence which your Issiks will exert, nnd can
not but hope that they will do much to counteract the
effects of that light and immoral literature which deluges
the land, aud, like the frogs of Egypt, comes up even to
the kneading troughs of our kitchens. May you live long
ti> follow your plans.
Respectfully and sincerely, your obliged servant,
?The works alluded to as having been examined and
recommended, are as follows: A new and popular Pictorial
Description of tho United States, Pictorial History of the
American Revolution. Scenes and Sketchesof Continental
Europe, Description of Great Britain ami Ireland, Picto
rial Family Annual, Treasury of Knowledge, Information
for the People, The Family Instructor, Pictorial Sunday
