TESTIMONY OF CURE.
New Yor*. Noveioner 22. 1835.
" I>?*r S'.r?Haviug a desire In discharge my obligations to you, ai
well as to promote good to suffering huminity, I hrrewith send you ,
for puMic ition an extraordinary case of cure effected by means of I ,
your Hygeian Vegetable Universal Medicine, in the peiMtnei my i
ton, Ralph, aged about thirteen years; in which I shall endeavor to i
. be as brief as possible, th it you nnv be enabled to make it more ex- I
le lively known. Whilst in Edit,burgh, my native place, mere >
than two years ago, he received a stroke on the elbow with a rule, so 1
severe as to create in the joint what was termed by physician* an
inflammation of the bone, from which he has suffered severe pain
until within a short time past. He has been treated Wy tome of the
Best eminent physicians in Scotland, which tended but little to
ameliorate his sufferings; consequently I despaired of hi? ever
again having the former advantage in the use of his ifflicted arm.
Happily I was at lenjih induced to make trial of the medicine in
question; from which in a few days use he experienced considerable
relief,afterwards his complaint assumed a more aggravated form, in
the breaking out, I suppose, 'if putrid or acrid humors around the
affected part; hut receiving this as a svmptom of the good ejects of
the medicine, vuur directions were fiilowed, by considerably augmenting
the dose, until he took as many as ten pills a day, from i
which he gained great relief, and he is now, after about three months :
use, restored to health. 1 can also hear testimony to the goed effects j
of your medicine in case of fever and arue and other common com- I
plaint*; to would recommend tho-* afflicted with ?ny disorder to '
lest its virtues. Respectfully subsctibed. by yotiroMieed,

As n<> smoke r dirt uf any kind U produced by the operation <>

in breathing the atmosphere ratified in this way. On thr contian
it has t>een found very beneficial in cavs of sickness. The humidi
It aud elasticity of ihe heated air thronn off from this stove, are believed
to be peculiarly agrteahle and healthful for those afHictei
with consumption or other pu manarr complaints.
The Compound Heater has proved highly useful in heating small
room?, where there are no fire places, flues, er other fixtnres, foi
heating with wood or coal.
The apparatus is ?o constructed as to answer not only for neatiag
apartments, but for miking It i or coffee, and for liming,
he iling water for shaving, washing, Jtc. all of which may be done oh
ttiVIe, sideboard or other fixtures without the u-e of a beplacr,
itove, or furnace. The fixtures* consists of several parts which
* hen dela< bed may be nude la accomplish cither uf Ihe above obHcta.
These parts are ?old separately or collectively to suit pur:hasers.
With a gill of rum or whiskey in the boiler, a good fire may be
made in fi>e minutes, merely by lighting the lamp, aud it may be
sxtuiguished in an instai L It requires no attention to keep it in ope"at
ion and it ? ay be used with perf?*t safely.
Thefollimiiig lesult of an experiment made with the smallest
Heater will sh iwtlie degree of hea it it su'ceplib'enf produring. It
vas charged with three cents worth of mm (half a pint) and put inupeation
iu a room in dimensions 15 feet by 8, where the mercury in a
hermometer stood at 54 dr.;. above fl. The heat emitted frvn this
ipparatui is produced by a column of ar fied air comtanlly pissing
iff from it, ami to lest the intensity ef this curient of air,it wa. the lejuest
of the spectators that the the niometcr shouid be placed fiist
> feet directly abave the stove, and then ia the roost dista t part or
he room. Atits pos lion over the Heater the mrrrurr rose 10 deg.
ii 5 minutes, ?0 deg. in 10 ininutess 36 deg. in 15 minutes and 31) dec.
ii 25 minutes, which railed it to 84 deg. above 0, wlieie it remained
intil Ihe liquid was exhausted which Ha* 4-5 nj'nutes from the lime
he heater became in full operation. At the expiration of ihis time
he mercury stood to 60 deg. above 0, in the extreme part of the room
15 feet from the stove.
The correction of these statements cm he proved by many of
iur respectable citizens, l ut if further testimony should he re[ucsle*
occular demonstration can he given in such a manner as to
irove to any one, who cau see aud feel, that tSey are not exaggeled.
The ?ppar*tus with which this experiment was tried, is called the
'Compound ll'llrr No.2." Its size is 12 inches by 9?price ten
lollars. The size of those called No. 1, it 14 inches by 12. Price

A Swiss peasant, the father of three children,took ip
his summer quarters in one of those chaJtis which the
inhabitants of the beautiful valleys of the Canton du
V aud inhabit during the period of their grazing their
flocks on the moiiutains. He resided there with hia
wife and three children, the eldest of whom, eight yean
of age, was an idiot; the second, aged five, was dumb ;
aud the youngest was still an infant. The latter wu
one day left alouc with his two brothers, and their mother
had scarcely left them when they strayed away
from their little dwelling to play auion; the rocks. Returning
home, the mother could' not Hud them, but afar
a short search she succeeded in discovering two* the
infant was no where to be seen. The idiot expressed
his joy in the most extravagant maimer, but the little
dumb fellow, on the contrary, appeared overwhelmed
with consternation, and the expression of tenor in his
eyes, aud his whole countenance quickly excited bit
mother's fears. She vainly endeavored to discover the
entire of their pantomimic, but could learn nothing from
the mirth of the idiot or the sorrow of the dumb child.

lures used by the idiot, which resembled those of a
person, to kis great jov, has found some thing for which
he has been looking a long time, that herchild had been
taken away by a neighbor, un event which ofteu occurred,
as the little creature was much liked aud caressed.
But night came, and with it no news of the
lost hope. On the following day the unhappy parents
again set out to seek their son every where. They had
not gone fur w hen an eagle flew over their heads,which
excited anew the joy of the idiot, and the terrors of the
dumb boy, who pressed closely lo his father, and hia
head in his hands, te avoid seeing the bird. The mother
then became certain that her child bad been carried
oil'by a bird of prey. In fact on the same day that
the fatal accident took place, a huntsman had stationed
himself in ambuscade near an e"gle's nest to wait for
a shot at the bird as he approached his aery. After
having watched for some hours with that characteristic
pntience which distinguishes the Swiss hunter, he at
length perceiv-'d one of those monarch* of the Alp* approching
?lowly towards the rocks, appearing twice aa
large as an ordinary eagle. The hunter's surprise waa
extreme, when on a nearer approach, he saw that the
bird carried a child in his tnlona. H-- heard its cries
and clearly distinguished its face.. lie had but one
course to adopt, nor did he hesitate to employ it, that
of shooting the eagle. He put up a prayer to God, took
aim at the bird, and fired. It took effect and the eagle
fell dead, shot through the head. The huuter recovered
the child and carried it Itome to tlm wretched and
incredulous mother. The boy was dreadfully torn by
the eHgle'g talons, bat none of his hurts were mortal.?

Kraut Learning.?When Kean first appeared, many

a Mr. C.,resolving to put it to the test, wrote
him one morning a note in Latin, requesting seme tickcts

The number of deaths in the city of Baltimore for the
year 1835, is 2050; which, estimating the population at
95.000, gives a mortality of a fraction less than 2i per '
cent.
We think Baltimore may safely challenge comparison
for health with any city in the Union. Of the above
number, 791, or more than one third, were under two
years; 76 Itetween seventy and eighty; 39 between
eighty and ninety; 8 between ninety and one. hundred ;
and 6 one hundred and upwards?of the latter, four
free colored men were aged each 112, 110,104, and 100
years, and two free colored women each 110 and 105
years, fn the list of diseases, 344 are represented to
have died from consumption and 41 from intcmperaace.
The income derived from the (Jirard estate by the
citv of Philadelphia, during the last vear, amounted (
$250,252 37.
Think of this, and take tobacco Georce Lorillard,
the tobacconist, who lately died in New York, left an
estate of nearlv five hundred houses, valued at three
millions of dollars. His brothers, Peter and Jac ob,
still living, are each worth 'as much, and probably
more. We wish one of them would adopt us.? Virginia
