neighb irhood was induced to try the Tincture for a
Violent palpitation of the heart, lie bad suffered so
mtt'-h from it that he said ha bad pfayed for death.
H? had taken but three doJej when he rwmirel us
he would not take five hundred dollars for the ben

to remember us with gratitude for calling his atten

Ask for -'Hampton's Vegetable Tincture." The
many cures mado by this feasant and safe remeav
may InditT cCuaWfeitiog.
A Medicin? must have merit, and great merit too,
to stand the test of public opinion. No art of puffing
can galvanise a worthier article, so as too keep it
up as a goo' medicine if it be no* really so.
A OOOD MEDICINE will live, become popular,
and extend its 'ales year after year, In spite ot op
portion. The peeple readily find out its virtues,
and the fame of them passes from mou'h to mouth
with more rapidity tlian newspapers can spread it.
: A living witness testifying to the cure a moiiclne
! has made for him is of far more service than any
newspaper advertising.
In proof of what we say above, we refer you to

AN ITALIAN TRAGEDY.
A recent traveler relates, that a favor
ite dramatic piece in the towns of the
Genoese territory is founded on the ful-'
lowing tragic story : A few years since
therfe lived at Port Maurice, near Oneglia, i
two lovers named Anna and Giuseppe,
the former eighteen, and the latter twenty
years of age. The parents had given
their consent to their union, and the wed- j
ding day was soon to be fixed; whan, 1
during a short absence of Giuseppe,
probably brought about by artful contri
vance, an intriguing friend of the family
prevailed oh the mother of the bride to
give her daughter to a more wealthy lover.
Anna, overcome by a maternal importu
nity, did what she had not firmness to
refuse to do, and promised to fcestow her
hand on a man for whom she had no
affection. Grief, however, soon under
mined h?r health, and, by way of amuse
ment, she was sent to the mountains to
the olive harvest. Iler mother also went
to see some relations in the country, and I
an elder sister was left at home.
Anna, nevertheless, grew worse: nay, j
she Was so ill, that her friends alarmed !
for her life, sent her back to her mother's
house. Meanwhile, Giuseppe had returned
ftftd tile rtsport of Anna's intended com
pulsory marriage soon reached his ears.
On the following Sunday he met her sister
at mass, and with the urgency, yet with
the resignation of despiir, he implored
her to procure him a last interview with
his beloved. They agreed that he should
find Anna in the garden in the evening
by moonlight, while the only guardian
uoiheStic, an old sailor, was at the public
house.
At the appointed time Giusseppe was
in the garden, and there he found his
Anna, weak, melancholy, and silent, she
went up to him with faltering steps; but
in vain he questioned her; i* vain he en
deavored to draw from her the acknowl
edgment that she still loved him, and !
acted by Compulsion?not a word could
he elicit?mute pale and motionless, she
stood like a beauteous statue before him.
At length he clasped the adored object in
in ardent embrace, during which he
buried a poignard in her heart. She fell j
without a groan. The murderer hastily
fled over the wall of the garden. The
sister alarmed at Anna's protracted ab
sence, went out into the garden, where I
she found her lifeless in her blood, and !
with the assistance of the old sailor, who
had returned too late, carried her into
the house.
The wrfetchcd aSsftssitl, impelled by
savage frenzy, after strolling about all
night, again scaled the wall of the gar
den, where he no longer found his Anna,
but only her blood, which he was busily
employed in wiping up with his hand
kerchief; when the mother, ignorant ef
what had happened, returned early in the
morning from the villaglaiuru, accompa
nied by the friend who was the cause of
the catastrophe, and, unlocking the gate,1
entered the garden. The frantic Giu
seppa rati to meet her, and holding the
bloody handkerchief close to her face,
wildly cried, 44 Consci tu quel sangue ?"
(Do you know the blood ?) The mother
rushed with a fiarful presentment into
the house, where the first object that met
her view was the corpse of her murdered
child. The maniac again fled to the cav
erns of the neighboring mountains.
The corpse was decorated after the
Italian fashion, crowned with a garland
of myrtle, and deposited the night before
the funeral in an open coffin in the church
before the high altar, ilere a person was
placed to watch it by the light of conse
crated tapers. After midnight the assas
sin suddenly forced his way into the
church ; the affrighted watchman ran off,
but stopped at a distance to observe his
motions, and behold the unfortunate Gic
seppa covering the remains of her whom
he had murdered from affection, with a
thousand kisses and burning tears ; after
which, with the rapidity of lightning, he
dispatched himself by several pistol-shots,
and fell lifeless on the corpse of his be
lovid victim. The unhappy mother went
raving mad. During her insanity she
frequently exclaimed, " Conosci tu quel
sangue?" and soon sunk into a prema
ture grave.
Noblk Blood.?Dickens, in his Child's
History of England, gives the following
slap in the fece at Mnne of the greatest of
the nobility of England. In Charles the
Seoond's time he says: 14 The wtiole
Court was a great flaunting crowd of de
bauched men and shameless women; and
Chaterine'a merry husband insulted and
outraged her in every possible way, until
she consented to receive those worthless
creatures as her very good friends, and to
degrade herself by their companionship.
A Mrs. Palmer, whom the King made
Lady Caatlamaine, and afterwards Duchsss
of Cleveland, was one of the most power
ful of the bad women about the Court, ?nd
had great influence with the King nearly
all through his reign. Another merry
lady, named Moll Davis, a dancer at the
theatre, was afterwards her rival. Soi
was Nell (Jwyn ; first an orange girl and
then an actress, who really liad some good
in her, and of whom one of the worst
things I knew is, that she actually does
seem to havo been fond of the King. The
first Duke of St. Albans was this orange
girls child. In like manner, the son of j
the merrv waiting lady, whom the King
created Duchess of Portsmouth, became
the Duke Richmond. Upon the whole,
it is not so bad a thing to be a commoner."

Interesting Details oeaeerning the Destruc
tion of tho Turkish Fleet.
Yirnka, DecembcHJO.
The Tricst Zri/tmg, containing the |
Constantinople correspondence o! the
12th, has rcached us. One writer states |
that the reports brought by the English
and French steamers from Sinope. had
caused the greatest consternation. Noth-,
ing is left of the Turkish ships hut heaps j
of fragments. Of the crew, which amount
ed to 5,000 men, at most, only 1,300 are
alive. The supineness of the Turks is j
considered inexcusable. From the 23d1
of November, three Russian ships of the
line, cruised during four days in sight
of Sinope. On the 29th, a reinforcement
of tlires three-deckers, two other ships
of the line, two frigates, and four steam
ers arrived, and on the following day at
noon, tlie Russian flagship summoned the
Turks to surrender. ?
The * * * correspondent of the ]
Triest Zcitung, who is an admirer of the
Russians, says it was not until the Turks I
had fired, that their adversaries began the {
cannonade, but this does not appear very
probable. For some time the Russians j
were completely sheltered from the guns I
of the strand batteries by the Turkish
ships, " and, as the liners fired from a
distance, they suffered very little from
the lighter metal of the frigates." Thej
Turks having at last cut their cables, and
let their ships drift on shore, the strand
batteries opened their fire.
The Russians then began to shell the I
town, which, with the frigates, was soon
in flames. 44 Thi6 was a fearful moment.
The sea of fire, the i oaring of the artil
lery, the continual explosions, and the [
fragments of human bodies which were
hurled about in all directions in the air,
formed one of the most fearful spectacles I
man ever beheld." The Turkish quarter |
was completely burnt, and the houses in
the other part of the town, where no
bombs had fallen, were perforated with
balls. The corpse of Hussein Ramsi
Pasha, the Turkish Rear-Admiral, was)
found in the water the next morning.
It is said (the writer is an Austrian)
that all the employees left the town ex
cepting M. Piijaniz, the Austrian Consul:
to whom the Russian Korni'.eff wrote,
principally attributing the the misfortune |
which had befallen the town to the ex-'
plosion of the ships, 44 which the Turks I
themselves had *?t on fire." It was]
added that the Russians bad no intention
to take possession of the place, their only
Object having been to put it out of the j
power of the Turkish fleet apain to con
vey ammunition to the coast of Circassia,
and 44 commit piracy." The Russian
fleet had left Sinope before the French I
and English vessels arrived; but eye-wit-1
nesses stated that it had not suffered'
much; as it was almost out of range ol
the gnns of the friga'es.
A British trader, which lay in the port
had two men killed by shots from the
Russian ships, and bein? subsequently
run foul by a burning Turkish frigate,
she was destroyed, iler captain and crew
who escaped say tliat the Turks 44 fought
like devils," blowing up their own ships I
father than they should fall into the hands
of the Russiaus. The ships of the line
poured in such tremendous broadsides
that the decks of the Turkish vessels were |
literally carried overboard. It is said
that Ilalii Pasha is to be ap[>ointed

Presence of Mind and ContAoi.?An
? incident, in which wolves are concerned,
shows what may be done by presence ot
mind and courage. "A perilous adven
ture," relates to the Major, "once befel nay
brother-in law James. He was a bold,
brave boy, of ten years old at the time,
and was on his return home with a pair
of oxen, with which he had been visiting
a neighbor, residing about six miles from
his father's hou.-e llis road lay by the
river shore, which was dnary enough in
the fall of the year and in the evening
hour; but the child was fearless, and saw
the deepening shades ?ink into night
without experiencing anythiug like ap
prehension.
44 He was trudging on steadily, singing
cheerfully as he walked, when a sound
came on the nightwind that sent a shiver
i through the young pedestrian's frame.?
the war-cry of the wolves. At first hi
hoped that he was not the object of pur
suit,?but the hideous uproar came nearer
and nearer, and then he knew that he
[ must instantly adopt some plan for hi
'escape.
44 His route lay by the river abore, and
he could swim well; but tho night wrs
I dark, and he might be hurried into the
rapids, and to be dashed to pieces on the
rocks was scarcely less dreadful than tc
be mangled and devoured by wolves. In
this extremity, the cliild lifted up his
brave young heart to God and resolved to
! use the only chance left him for escape.
So he mounted Bock, the near-ox, mak
ing use of his goad, shout>ng at the same
time to the animal, to excite him to his
Utmost speed.
44 In most cases the horned steed woult
have flung off his rider, and left him for
wolves1 meat without hesitation: but
Buck set off with the speed of a race
horse, as if fully aware of his young rid
er's peril. Nor was his companion less
nimbler. Fast, however, as the trio fled,
still faster came upon them the yelling
pack behind, and Jaases could em bear
Their Ions, hard t?Ho|i, which cnuM tire
The houM* <kep !>?<?? ? hunter's fire.
" Happily for him, old Buck heard it
too, and galloped on and on; but still the
wolves came nearer and nearer* I
shouted, to keep them off: the oxen al
most flying, their chains rattling u they
went. This clacking sound, to which the
hateful pack were unaccustomed, made
them pause whenever they came close
upon the oxen, while tlie latter redo*hied
their speed, till at length those gallant
racers left thr wolves behind, and finding
themselves within a short distance of
home, never sloped till they had brought
the brave little fellow safely in his own
door."

Tns Hungarian (jirairs.?The social
life of this outlawed race, now number
ing about 4.000, bears the impress ol
great moral depravity. Under a tent, or
in a narrow hut, containing one single
room, a whole family lives, however nu
merous, without any furniture, even
without a bed. In the middle of this
room, a fire, their never-failing compan
ion, burns alike in winter and summer,
over which hangs the large soup-kettle on
two forked slicks. Into it tbey throw
pell-mell all the eatables they procure
during the d?y, consisting of the most
curious inedley of gipsy dainties?from a
rotten egg to a dead cat. As noon as th?
boy eaters manhood, he seeks for a com
anion amongst the swarthy beauties of
is tribe, and after a short courtship
makes his pn?ponals to the object of his
choice, the consent of parents being not
much cared for by either of the parties.
On the wedding day, the bridegroom and
bride don their best apparel ?the former's
consisting of a hussar-clonk, probably
older than himself, of a red or green
oolor, furred and braided, aud on a Inch,
if the owner be wealthy, glitter large
sine or silver buttons. t"hc bride wears
a red petticoat of many folds, and a white
skirt with short, full aleeves. her hair and
neck adorned with copper coins.
If they sre not compelled to go to
chnrch, the matrimonial ceremony is
performed in a hut by the chief, or the
oldest father in tlie I and, the bridegroom
pledging his faith in the following man
ner : 4 I take thee for my hut-comi?au
ion ss long as thou ranst carry the szat
yor"?a sort of basket?that is to say,
till death: for a gypsy-woman is never
without her szatyor, in which she collects
all the odds and ends she picks up dunng
her ramb'.e6. Then comes feasting and
dancing, in which ea-'h member of the
tribe shaivs. 'n the third day, the- mer
ry-making U in mates, and the newly
wedded oouple build a hut, procure the
implements for iorging, and commence
their domestic life, with all its piquant
daily occurrences of beggivg, pilfering,
idling, kc. *"
Mrs. Jones " Aroind."?The Slam
ford Advocate contains the following spir
ited advertisement, which does its au
thorus infinite credit:
To tiif. Public : Whereas my Imsband,
Edward II. Jones, has falsely advertised
that I have left his bed and board, and
that he will pay no debts of my contract
ing, &c., thi< is to inform the public that
tlie afoiesaid Edward II. Jones bad neith
er bed nor board lor me to leave, he hav
ing been living at the expense of my fath
er ; and further, under pretence ol pro
curing money to pay bis way to Birming
ham, Connecticut, be borrowed a dollar
of my father, and with that paid for his
lying advertisement against me, and
even after this dastardly act, he took all
the money I had, and borrowed every
cent in my mother's possession, and left
town- For the past three months he has
been kept from nakedness and starvation
by the exertions of m}self and relatives :
he squandered in disipaiion all the money
his inborn lazin* ss would allow htm to
earn. Th? scamp need not hsve adver
tised that he would not pay debts of my
contracting, for the public well knows
that he would not even pay his own. He
is a lazy, ui.gratefid, loatiing scoundrel;
not content with living at tlie expense
of my relatives and borrowing their mo
ney, he publishes an outrageous lie.
His bed aud board, indeed! If led to
himself, his bed would be nothing but a
board, and 1 should not be much surprised
if the bed he dies on were made of loards,
with a strong cross-l>eam overhead.
Sarah A. Jones.
0^7" The following is published in a
French nespaper: " A poor shepherd of
the environs of Yvetot, father of a large
family, for whose wants he provided with
very great difficulty, purchased last sum
mer from a dealer in old clothes, furni
ture, Ac., an old B.ble. with a view to
oocupy his leisure evenings during the
present winter. On one evening, as he
was turning over the leaves, he noticed
that several of the leaves were pasted
together- He immediately set himself to
work to separate those leaves with great
care; but one can scarcely form a con
ception of the surprise of tlie man, when
he found thus carfully enclosed, a bank
bill of Ave hundred francs ($100.) On
the margin of one of the pages were writ
ten these words:
44' I gathered together this mooey with
very great difficulty ; but having none as
natural heir but those who have abso
lutely need of nothing, I make thee, who*
iw shall reed thiaKble, nay Mr.'"
