August 29th. IfM. )
Messrs. Mortimer A M- wbray?Gents: You tnay
think it ."trance that I have taken the lihrrty to
write you tbitt letter. tut t do so under circumstances
th8t justify it. As you are the Agents f?r HAMP
ent to address you this note, hoping it may be a part
?t" the honor ?ble meww of giving tuis medicine no
toriety which its merits deserve.
Being in the habit of vending medicines which re
late to the Patent and regular fystem. T consider
myself, to some extent, a judge of the reel merit of
many of them My experience tcachc* me that
? Hrmpton's Tincture" is a me limine of ror.l merit
<>f intrinsic value. When I say thi", I (to not say
that it i? an infallible cure, in ail casets. hut i mean
to spy that "Hampton's Tincture"' will favorably op
erate in nil dis?*n?"6 originating from n want ?>f prop
er secretions of the gastric juices, bad digestion, and
consequently bed depositee of animal matter from
that source. I believe that many diseases located in
various parts of the system, such ?s Inrt?mat.i n.
Ulcers, Scrofula, Ac., Ac., originally have their be
inx in th" stomach. from had food, had tlicestioti,
ai d consequently hail depositions ot' the eireulation
to those par's: and 1 will believe Hampton's *ege
tr.b'c Tincture will even renct in these eases.
Having found out, niy?e!f what it is. I recommend
:t to others in such ra?es a? T have described, and 1
have done it upon tha "no cure no pay" syst-. m,
?rd 1 have jet to have the Cut bottle returned, or
the first objection alniut the pay. It is a greyt pity
it cannot bs more extensively circulated among the
people. * * * * I warrant
it in the following cases; Gout, Rheumatbm, Inflj.
m ti"n?, which proceeds from the stomach, Sores.
Srrofula. Pyspeps'a. long standing cases of Ag?i< end
Kevc.*; first stop the chill, and then give the Tinc
ture?the difficulty in this case is not in stopping
the chill, hut the "return of it. this the Tincture will
rertainly do. In general debilitations. 1 warrant it,
\rd as 1 sa'd before 1 luve procured r. trial of it in
this way, which otherwise I could not; the people
linv been humbugged by patent medicines so lone,
that they ar?* afraid of all. This is clearly a stomach
medicine, it works nil its wonders there, and in nil
u~h cases it is a .-pcciflc, if anything in the world is.
Having jpveu the Tincture a fair trial with my
?elf, in ray family and neighborhood, I think I am
rvatranted in what ! say about it, and which I do
nrithout any other interest, tlii?c the wish to see it
n g<?nerrl circulation, and in every man's family,
where it ouuht to be.
If vh it 1 say be doubted by any of the afflicted.
>n 1 thev wiii write to me. at Sardy Bottom Post Of
!7oe. Middlesex county, Vi'gir.i.i, ststing the nature
if the disease. and I re ommend it for such a cos? I
*<11 warrant it, and if it don't do good I will pay for
'ha medicine. TUOS. R. DULL.

Tub Cholera.?The New York Courier
fears the cholera may reach this country
and city, as it is now so prevalent in l*u
rope. The disease has spread most in
England, in filthy locations, as in New
I Castle, where there arc many more cases
in 1853 than 1849. It says :
44 At Copenhagen, where the disease has
been raging, oat of a thousand persons who
were removed from a crowded local itj' to au
encampment outside the town, only ten died.
At Hamburgh, where the epidemic has been
prevailing upwards of six weeks, only six
easss of cholera have occurrcd. in the im
proved part.* of the town, and in London, iu
the ravage? of 1819. not a single ea?c of chol
era occurred in any of the model dwellings
1'or the poor, though the pestilence racked
around them among the same class of popula
tion. It i? s^id that the Hospital Surgeon? of
London, can map down with ?!mo?t unerring
certainty the districts where the cholera will
first appearand ravage most malignantly, ??id
can "predict almost the percentage of case.
and the relative mortality"
CC7~Mr. Wood, late Governor of Ohio,
oil his way to Valparaiso, touched at
Jamaica, and formed rather an unfavora
ble opinion of the effects of the abolition
of slavery on that island. He says :
" We saw many plantations, the buildings
dilapidated; fields of sugar-cane half-worked,
and Lapparently poor, and nothing l?nt that
v.'uich will prow.without the labor of man
appeared luxuriant and flourishing The
island itself is of great fertility, and one of
the best of the Antilles, but all the large and
best estates are fast going to ruin. In the
harbor were not a dozen ships f*f all nations;
no business was doing, ami everything you
heard spoken was in the language of com
plaint. Since the blacks have been liberated
they have become indolent, in?oleiit. degraded,
and dishonest. They are a rude, beastly so*
of vagabonds, lying naked about the streets,
as flHhy as the Ilottenots. and. I believe.
C^'We call attention to an advertise
ment, in another column, of two reme
dies; one for "Fever and Ague," and the
other for "Bowel Complaint,'' prepared
under the direction of the University of
Free Medicine and Popular Knowledge,
and issued by order of the Board of Trus
tees, from its Laboratory in Philadelphia.
As everything originating from this in
stitution will emanate from Medical Grad
nates of enlarged experience, and high
scientific attainments, we have every rea
son to believe that all remedies prepared
under its sanction will be worthy of im
plicit confidence with the public as well
r.s the medical profession.
Mails?Election?Salrt of the Reserves?
Pacific Railroad?Mrs. Sinclair.
The San Francisco correspondent of the
New York Tribune, under date of the
j 15thSeptember, writes:
The Sierra Nevada arrived to-day, as
usual, in advance of the mail, and the
Tribune will be read all over California
before the mail steamer arrives. These
things arc intolerable, ami we must have
a mail by the Nicaragua Route. It is
right in itself, and the best interests of
California require it. ^ ou will see by
the election returns that Bigler is n
elcctcd, and the entire Democratic licket
throughout. It might have Ijcen expect
ed, and Bigler is atai better man than lie
is represented to be. The gale cf the
public reserves has been enjoined, but the
injunction will be deferred, and the sale
will go on. Money enough will be raised
to pay a very considerable portion of the
Slate debt. The property is worth, and
will probably bring when all sold, over
a million of dollars.
Mrs. Sinclair has become a permanent
citizen of California, and taken the new
theatre in this city. She has been emi
nentlv successful as an actress, and has
secured the warm friendship of all Cali
f.irnians. Meetings are held weekly of
our citizens on the subject of the Pacific
Railway. We shall furnish a map of
statistics in regard to the commerce of
the Pacific that will astonish all Eastern
people. A company will be organized
and ready to build the road from San
Francisco to the State line. California
will be no laggard in this matter. The
road must be built and that without

The small pox was raging on the Island
without abatement, and had been made a
' matter of a good deal of excitement. On
I the 20th of July last, the citizens of Hon
I olulu held a spiritual meeting, and pre
pared a petition to the King for thr dis
missal from office of l)r. Judd and Mr.
Armstrong, the Ministers of Finance^-and
Public Instruction. The petition. among |
othrr criminations, allege.-: tha* these gen
tlemen of the Ministry are responsible for
the prevalence of the small pox. and that
it was through their influence that the
Government rejected the proposal > made
by the Hoard of Physicians on the first
appcarance of the cpidcmic, to arrest its
progress by vaccinating the entire popu
lation of the islands. Counter petitions
and statements had been made in a very
excited spirit.
The Royal (Commissioners of Public
Health had. in favor of the petitions of
the foreign residents, made some arrange- i
mints in the nature of hospitals and vac
cine establishments and health districts,
rr.d had provided f>r burials at the pub
lic expense. The Inst Health Report
shows a most desperate fatality on the j
island of Oahu, whilst only a tew cases
are reported to remain at Honolulu. The
to'al number of cases reported on the
islands is : deaths 1,276. The
deaths at Ilawaihae were -8 out of a pop
ulation of 50.
A saw mill was al?out to be crectcd
mar Ililo, where good timber abounds.
The Polynesian says:
'? For many years all the luml?er made
upon the Islands has been saw n by hand,
an expensive and laboi ous process. There
is much koa and ohia timber on Hawaii, .
which, if sawn into boards, plank, scant
ing, timber, &c., would find a market I
here f->r the various purposes of building, I
furniture and export, and could be sold at
a rate below the cost of importing the
same from a foreign country/'

Tho Wifi "Whipping Affair at Newport.
The Newport M-rctiry of Friday pro- j
nonnces "untrue'* the declaration of Col.
Cranston that the story cf Morgan hav- j
iiig flogged his wife "was false." As we
have copied the allegation of Col. C., it is
but just that the other side should l>c
heard: though we had hoped that the pub
lic had heard the last of this unpleasant j
affair. The Mcrotry says:
"Morgan did beat his wife, and not
only beat her, but the beating was a se
vere one. Three bruises, (two of which, i
were each as large as a dollar, one, on the
temple above the eye. and a third was on
the frontal, and was so severe as to break
the skin,) were made by the flogging upon
her face, and these wounds were visible
for several days after they were inflicted.
Two ladies distinctly heard the blows,
and a third entered the room immediately
aft. r they were inflicted, and then noticed
the condition of Mrs. Morgan, while she
was suffering from the immediate conse
quence of the wounds which were then
upon her. and another lad}-, five minutes
before Morgan entered the room, noticed
Mrs. Morgan's face, and knew that there
were then no wounds upon it, and she dis
tinctly heard the fracas.
It ha.-i been proved that Morgan came
to Newport with his wife and took lodg
ings at the Touro House, on the 15th
July; that his wife was a s'ranger in
Newport?that he left Newport on the
ITthof July without making any prepara
tion for the accouchnient of Mrs. M.,
which took place on the 20th, when Mor
gan was still absent: that for all the at- ;
tentions she received upon that occasion,
she was indebted to some of the lady j
guests of the Touro House, and that
Morgan, when he returned from New !
York, did not speak to his wife or show |
any a<*t ot tenderness during her confine- !
Among the great number of impudent
impostors who have given themselves out
for other persons in consequence of some I
resemblance, none have so much embar
rassed the judges as Arnold Dutille, in
the case of Martin Ciuerre, adjudged by
tin; parliament of Toulon, in France, in I
1500. This iast was absent only eight
years. An adventurer named Arnold;
Dutille, who somewhat resembled him,
succeeded so far as to obtain possession of
the property and wife of the real Martin j
Guerre, and lived more than three years
in the family under his assumed name,
with four sisters and two brothers-in-law
of Martin Guerre, who had no suspicion
of their errors. At the trial 300 witnesses '
were i xsmincd. Thirty or forty affirmed 1
the arraigned person was really Martin
Guerre, with whom they had from infancy
hern in the strictest intimacy; others, in
neatly equal number, certified that this
man was called Arnold Dutille: and others j
found so striking a resemblance heiween j
them, that they dared not affirm whether ;
the person presented to them was the one ?
or the other. The reporter of this ce'.e- i
brated cause relates that the perplexity j
of the judges was extreme, and that, in
spite of very strong realms against the
prisoner, they were on ihe j oint of ad
judging in hi> favor, because of the mar
riaue and legitimacy of his children: but ;
the arrival of the real Martin Guerre
prevented the success of the imposture.?
Yet the assurance and effrontery of Dutille
seemed to disconce rt Guerre, when con-!
f.onted with him. The judges were still
more uncertain than before, until at length
Martin was recognised by his sisitrs and
wife, to the <mar, satisfaction of the mag
Last winter, a man named Schlatter,
attached to the Geological Survey, was
frozen to death in the wild and inhospita
ble regions north of Lake Superior. He
was one of the best draughtsmen in the
United States. A recent number of the
Lake Suj>erior Jonrnul gives an account
of his sad and melancholy de ath, derived
from one of the number who went in pur
suit of him itfier he had strayed from the
route: " About sundown they discovered
the place where he left the track, and fol
lowing his trail entered a thick cedar
I swamp. It was evident he had been in
the swamp the night previous, ami that
he was lost. He crawled under lop* an J
tree tops to find shelter from the snow,
and wandered about, crossinp ami re
crossing his own track as j eople do when
tliov sre bewildeml, hut did not po to
sleep or remain lone in a place. It is
suppebed that in tlie morning he left the
swamp, hut did not take the proper
couise for the mine, and did not use his
compass to determine the direction. Al
though the night was a cold one, even
for this region, and the snow was deep,
it d?ws not appear that his feet or body
were frozen. When it Ik came dark, the
party lighted torches, and pur-ued tho
steps of the lost man hv the blaze < f par
cels of birch bark. His strength was ev
idently failing : his paces w? re slow and
short, with frequent rests?he was no
doubt aware that he was in a bewilder* d
state, for hi- followed not a straight course,
but the valley of r. brook. About nine
o'clock in the evening. tl e party came
upon the h?Mlv. lying a' full hnglh under
the shelter of a stout Cedrr. The tops
and drooping limbs of this tree arc so thick
as frequently to keep the snow fmm falling
for a space around the roots. Mr. Schlat
ter, conscious thai hi' ffte was stab*!,
had crawled under this shelter, and
calmly laid down to die?hi.; compass
laid on one side, and his hat remained on
the other : and he was found?the vital
warmth r.oi all pone*?with his hands
folded serf ss his breast, his body perfect
ly straight, ar.d tl.f fa<*e upward.
" What a scene ! The vencrabTe cedar
crested with snow: the winter wind
m janing a sad dirge through its braneh
es ; the torches illuminating for the first
time its black limbs, and the dreary ex
panse of snow that lav on the surfacc of
? ?
the ground. In the midst of the circle,
a dead beidy, not frozen or disfigured, the
countenance not even distui lied by agony,
the eves closed; but no doubt remained
that it was the repcrc of death. By the
glare of the lights the face of the living
contrasted vividly with that of the dead,
expressing the elecp emotion of the human
heart?pity, wonder, and sympathy.
The body was taken on a litter to tfic
Quincy mine, and is buried there."

Sixgcl.w. Statement for a REi.reiors
Paper.?The New York LidcprwUnt, a
Congregai ional i aper, of which Henry
Ward Bccchcr is a stated contributor,
holds the following remarkable language
on scepticism and reform :
Among all ihe earnest-minded young
men who are at ti is moment leading in
thought and action in America, we ven
ture to say that four fifths are sceptical
even of the- great historical facts of Chris
What is told as Christian doe'rine by
the churches is not even considered by
them. And furthermore, flit re is among
them a general ill-concealed distrust of
the clerical body as a class, and utter dis
trust with the very aspect of modern
Christianity and of tho church worship.
This sce-ptieism is not flippant : little is
said al>out it. It is not a peculiarity
alone of the radicals and fanatics: many
of them are men of calm and even balance
of mind, and lie-long to no class of ultra
ists. It is not worldly and selfish. The
doubters lend in the bravest and most
se-lf deriving enterprises of the day.

SticiDK from Excess of Modesty.?A
voung man committed suicide in London
recently, from excess of modesty. Mr.
(George Stanley Smythe, a yourg man
nearly thirty," was to be marrifd to a
young lady,'but he had a strong impres
sion that he was unworthy of her. This
feeling drove him mad. He went into
the Cathedral Hotel, St. Paul's, called
f>r half a pint of sherry, and drank it. In
ten minutes he fell on the fioeir, and died
in a few hoiiTS. He had put esstnee of
bitter almond in the bottle. In his pock
et book were found lines bewailing his
want of merit.
