THOUSANDS SPEAK ITS PRAISE 1
This article, which has mude so many wonderful^
cures wherever tried, was discovered by Dr. JESSE
HAMPTON, now in fine health, in the 79th year of
his age. He was born in Virginia in the year 1775.
and '.'migrated to Kentucky, then a wilderness, with
his father in 1779. In early manhood he was so re
duc??i by disease as to be almost wrecked in consti
tution. lie spent much of hi? living tor medical ad
vi^* and attention; and grew nothing better, but
worse. Finding no relief from bis physician, he re
solved te try the restorative powers of the root?,
barks, leaven, plants, Ac., of the forest, lie then
dwelt in the midst of the lied Men of the Western
Wilds. Having heard much ol their skill in the use
Of the vegetable remedies ol the forest, and k: ow
im; their mode of medicinal practice mutt be one ot
practical experience, and not of theoretical specula
tion, he made hiiiueif acquainted with their reme
dies, and also with the practical medicinal knowl
edcj the early settlers of Kentucky hid obtained
from the "medi.ine men" cf tlin Indians He care
tul!\ studied tne nature of the medicines used by
them, combined them accordiug to the light he re
reived, used them as he had been taught, and had
the clieering satisfaction of findiDg disease driven
from his emaciated body, and vigorous health given
in its ste..xd. lJ is ca*e was of no ordinary kind, but
astonishing to his friends and neighbors. The fame
of it spread ; tbe people far and near sent to the
Dcctor for his successful and wonderful cotnbina
t on of Indian Hemedies, wldch was freely given to
them, until the cafes became so numerous, and the
demand so gruit, that th# Doctor wrs advised by
friends and induced through justice to himself to
put up bis Vegetable Tincture in bt-ttles, and charge
a price for it. which was ireely given ?finding its
way into the frrat and most intelligent lamilie=, and
astonishing all by its wonderful cure#, commanding
certificates and testimony in its favor from the lead
ing and seme of the most talented men of our
country.
ITS MODE OF PR EPA HA TION
is not by boiling or steaming?no heat is used.?
Hence the medicinal vir ues of the root*, 4c., of
which it is composed, are not evaporated, but aie
preserved in their primitive state.
I 'NPA HALL EL ED SUCCESS!
The many cures made by it. and the great demand
have induced the proprietors to offer it to the atili t
?d in this city, with the honest conviction that the
?mr happy results will follow its use huru as in nil
merous other places.
Capt. Canot, biother of lhe celebrated physician
to the

VTiOUGHT IKON BRIDGES v?. CAST IRON,
WOODEN. OB STONE BRIDGES
Messrs. Editors:?As the subject of
?ridges now occupies much of the at ten-1 0
ion of Congress, and of this community, J v
n<l as my profession of a civil engineer, I (l
nd my present occupation have rendered' I a
ic somewhat acquainted with the hub-)
;ct, I offer you the following suggestions, I
rhicli you are at liberty lo use as you j
nay think fit. I
The properties of wrought iron, which |
hietly contribute to its strength and
tility, are its elasticity and tenacity,
ly the first is meant that property, by
irtue of which it returns to its former
igure. state, and relative arrangement
I its parts ; after it has been exposed to
ension, or the act of straining. Bv the
atter is meant that property, by virtue
f wliicli the particles 01 metal resist
eparatiou ; or, in other words, it is the
ousequence of direct cohesion between
he particles of metal. It requires a
uuch smaller strain t3 overcome the
tinier property than that which is neces
ary to destroy th? latter. For instance: J
, weight of H to 11 tons suspended 10 1
he end of a bar of wrought iron, of a 1
quare inch section, will overcome its I v
lasticity : while 24 to 26? tons similarly I *
;uspended, are necessarj* to overcome its I
cnacity, or to produce disruption of the I v
tar. llence we se? that the elasti<nty of *
he wrought iron may be destroyed. Ion,;
>efore disruption would ensue, and long 1
K'fore the ordinary observer would dis-1'
?over that any change had taken place '
n the bar, or in any structure of wrought I 0
ron. (See Barlow on the Strength of 1
dateiial .) |
But, if the dastictty of the iron is once r
>vercome, every additional stiain will ?
.ause the iron to become weaker: and it I :
nay finally part, with a much less strain, I "
hau it had previously resisted, with im- I
aunity, before its elasticity had been im- '?
jairtd. From this, it would appear, that ?
n order to sccure safety in structures ol :
:liis material, they should not be ex
[>oscd to any strain, which was sufficient 1
to overcome the former pro pert}*, the '
elasticity, of the metal. But experience
tias shown that neither the elasticity; nor c
the tenacity of wrought iron, will remain ^
the same, if the metal is exposed to tin 1
?tiects of percussion, heat and magnetism. Jc
For instance, if you break a wrought
iron furnace bar, after it has been ex- j
t>osed to the alternate heating and cooling |
if a furnace for some time, it will be '
bund to be converted into brittle crystal
zed iron, although it may have been a L
.ough, fibrous iron when first put imo v
the furnace. *
Again, by rapidly heating and cooling. a
by quenching with water a few times, 1
tny piece of wrought iron, the same eifect I ^
will be produced. 1
In these experiments at least two of 1 0
the above mentioned causes are in ope- 11
ration, viz: heut and magnetism! lor, I1'
sve have the authority ot Sir Humphrey I ^
Davy for stating, that all cases of vapori- *
nation produce negative electricity in the s
bodies in contact with the vapor.
We now come to the third cause, which
is, practically, cf far greater importance ?'
in its effects than the other two, they be- J
Ing more various and extensive. In the I
manufacture of some descriptions of ham- J 0
tnered iron, the bar is first rolled into I ^
3hape, and then one-half the Umgth of tl t c
bar is heated in a furnace, and immedi- j
Aieiy taken to the tilt hammer, and ham- \
ruered, and the other end of the bai' is i
then heated and hammeipl in the same
manner. Aud in order t# avoid any ma
lerial ditiereuce, in form or color, where I \
the two distinct operations have teruii-1 c
uated, the workmen frequently give the t
bar a few blows with the liammer on that c
point which he first operated upon, whie' t
part by that time, may have become con. 1
paratively cold, in which case the etfeet i
of the additional hammering is to render i

is to produce magnetic inductions, which
Msisied Ky further vibrations from addi
Li >:ial j ercussion, produces a crvstalized
U-xture: the irou looses its tenacity an 1
elasticity, and at once becomes very
brittle.
Instances are on rccord where piston
rods, having a jar in their motion, and
railroad car axles, and even oommoti
carnage axles, have kcome brittle, aid
have broken from like causes. So. with
iron bridges, on the Eric Kail road; the
*ruught iron gun, the peace-maker, on
the Princeton, in 1M4: and in cases of
^pension iron bridges, both in England
Mrd in this countiy. The late "Wheeling
bridge accident, and the Kyder bridge
aise, are probaoly attributable to the one
rod the same cause, combined with others
irising fu?m imperfections in the ma
Luial when first used in the constrm
Lion. From these facts and inferences,
we have come to the conclusion that great
;are, both in the manufacture of the iron
and in the mode of construction of
wrought iron bridges, is essentially ne
cessary to safety in such constructions.
An experiment was made in England
with a smZll bar of good tough iron,
it being susj>enut.J and struck con
jiuously with small hammers

iflect was that the bar, after the ex

onsiderable time, became so extremely
Kittle that.it finally fell to pieces under
lie light blows of the haud-hmmuerv,
>resentiug throughout its structure a
lighly cr)*stalized appearance. That
rith proj>cr care in the manufacture ci
he iron, and in the combination cf
nought iron with cast iron in the sau e
onstruction, using the former for ties
nd the latter tor struts and voussoirs in
n arched bridge, good iron bridges have
?Jen made and can be made again, is not
euied. But, in the absence of the ne
essary skid, both in the manufacture oi
ho proper iron, and in the scientific ar
uigcmeut of the parts of the different
inds of iron, so as to give to each the
iilce best suited to its properties, it
oiild seem most prudent to build either
f stone altogether, or with stone piers
nd wooden superstructure.
A Cmt Envjikeesl
i'liN'ToxisM.?In 1840, Colonel Benton
lid:
" Clin?,t and lus ApoMies appeared in
provmocot the Koman Empire, when
lat Empire was called the Roman world
id the world was filled with slaves.?
orty millions was the estimated number.
2iu^ one-tuurth of tlie whole population.
ingle individuals hnd twenty thousand
ayes. A freed man, one who lad him
-lt been h slave, died the possessor of
'Ur thousand?such were the numbers,
ho right of the owners over this inulti
ido of human beings was that of life
nd death, without protection from law,
r mitigation from public sentiment.
" Christ saw all this?the number of
ie slaves, their helpless condition, aud
leir white color, which was the 6anu
iui his own, yet he ^aid nothing agaiiitot
avery ; lie preached no doctrine which
<1 to insurrection and massacre; none
hieh in its application to the state of
lings in our country, would authorize an
iforior race of blacks to exterminate
bat superior race of whites in whose
anks he himself appeared upon earth.?
Ie preached no such doctrines, but those
f a contrary tenor, which inculcated
ie duty of fidelity and obedience on the
a: t of the slave?humanity and kind
ess on the part of the master. His
d?'-sties did the tame. St. Paul sent
ack a runaway slave, Omesimus, to his
wner. with a letter of apology and sup
iication. He was not the man to har
>o? a run; May, much less to entice him
ro:a h;s master. ?nd least of all to excite
u insurrection."
In 1850, Col. Benton expressed the
itmost detestation of compromises. He
eo'ared:
"I believe in the compromises of the
oistilution, and swore allegiance to them,
nd keep the oath. I do not lalieve in
he compromises made by i>oliticians?
andidates for the Presidency. I have
Den too much of such work.
Iu^ 1850, he vehemently opposed Mr.
lay's compromise bill, and expressed
imsc-If thus:
"It (the 1*5U compromise) was con
ived upon the avowed ground that it
as to make its champions Presidents,
nd is now stuck to upon that principle:
nd if it tails to do the job, it will take
ie tiack of two defunct predecessors,
ud soon be with them 4 ix the tomh of
nh Capi lets.' This is my experience
1 Congress compromises, and nobody
eed set up these little clay-gods for me
) worship, especially when those who
it them up do it for a purpose, and
nock them down when thev don't an
tver it."
Ma*e a Notk of it?We clip the fol
ding paragraph from the Philadelphia
rgus;
44 The Ex-llon. Lewis C. Levin was in
ur city yesterday, engaged in street
arangues against Mr. Vaux, the Demo
ratic candidate for the Mayoralty. The
ix-llon. has had some experience of Mr.
aux s efficiency as a Magistrate, and
encc lus Of>pos4tion."
^5 Fifteen gallons and three quarts ( f
rnisky found their way into the thrmi
f William Jones, of Perrysville, within
hree weeks, and instigated him to uiut
ler his mother. He slabbed her three
imes, and -drenched her with three
mckets of water. The noise by this
irae attracted the neighborhood, and .^hv
vas saved.
