Mr. Stockbridge, if the Fotmtam HoUi, Light street,
IV a* Sir : Being on the point of leaving the city,
I ??ail myself of a f?w idle moment* to thank you
kindly for the medicine yon sent me, and ehich has
restored me to the use of my limbs. I beg yon to
send m* four bottles more, to carry on my voyage.
8it ?e I had the fortune to use Dr. Hampton's Vege
table tincture my confidence is no strong that, in
gratitude 10 the proprietors of raid medicine, I beg
you tt> present mv respect* to them, and induce
tbem Ho make it more publicly known as a sure
Rlieutoaiic cure. Having railed on me on the 19th
of Apfil last, and seen me prostrated on my bed,
4ijle* in all my liabs, you can appreciate nearly
a* wm|1 as myself the prompt relief I rewired from
Dr. Hampton's Tincture, and I am positive had h
not been tor your strong and forcible recommenda
tions I should still have been in bed.
It it really a pity ibis specific should not be ap
proved by medical men, and like all patent drugs it
should suffer the imputation the public generally
give tr such preparations. I myself, who was al
ways opposed to a patented specific, took this medi
cine %ith reluctance, and without confidence in it,
and it was only through your disinterested, friendly
recommendations, and my critiial situation that in
duced me to try this really beneficial Vegetable
Ycfi may inform Messrs. Mortimer A Mowbray
that |hey are at liberty to make nw of my name in
ippart of the good effects of Dr. Hampton's
.ble Tincture, as it has cured me in five weeks
ironic Inflammatory Rheumatism, contracted
tropical ctima&u, and of seven years'periodical
on. I have only used three bottles, and find
iven the deformed porta of My hands are fast
o their former natural appearance.
I have been under t(>e treatment of several phy
sicians in London and Paris, without any apparent
benefit; also, while In New Ycrk, having tried the
Thompsonian and Homaepathic remedies, after hiv
ing been tormented with galvanic ba'teries, oold
ahl aromatic baths, and hundreds of internal and
external medicines, all to no effect, I am, so far,
cured by this Hampton's Vege able Tincture only.
Therefore, my dear sir, accept of the assurance of |
my gratitude, and believe m* your w?ll wisher.
Thomas Carot.
Portsmouth, Va , Aug. 18,18R1.
Mr. J. 8. Boush??**r sir: While I am, in gen^
ral, spi>oeed to patent medicines, candor compels me
tc state that I have great confidence in the virtues'
of R*mp40O'a Vegetabl* Tincture. For several
months past I have need it in my family ; and in
dyspepsia, lose of appetite, disiiness, and general de
bility, with entire success. 8o far as my experience ,
extends, therefore, I take pleasure in recommend
ing it to the afflicted as a safe and efficient remedy.
| am, respectfully, yours,

Messrs Mortimer k Mowbray: Gentlemen?Hav

comftlisbed a perfect jure I have used different I
medicines from time to time, b"t have never been I
ablei to aooount for any apparent good, and it is a j
bleeping to stricken humanity that that medicine is j
fou4d which possesses the wondarous power of pro
lending l.oman life. The many curesit has wrought i

Every Man Hit Oirn Lawyer?Self Defenoe
At the last term of the Orange Co. (N.,Y.)
Court, the following cue was tried, upon which
the jury was addressed by the defendant who
had concluded to appear in his own defenoe :
The People vs. James Ailtrton.?Tais was
a very interesting oese, rendered so from the
fact that the defendant acted as ''his own
lawyer" on the trial, without having the ad
vantage of being one of the legal fraternity.
His "summing up,' of which we are able to
give nearly a verbatim report, with the excep
tion of the acting, was decidedly rich, and
afforded much amusement for the legal gen
tlemen present. The defendant, who is a small,
red-haired, thin specimen of a Yankee, was
indicated for an assault and battery on one
Mr. Dodder. The facts, as divulged upon trial
are briefly as follows; The defendant is in the
employ ot the Mongaup Valley, Forrestbur#
and Port Jervis Plank KoadCompany as atoll
gatherer, and resides upon the road, some
miles above Port Jervis. He and the com
plainant, Air. Dodder, are near neighbors.
On a Sunday in February last, tbe deft, saw
the complainant, in the act of beating his (def t's)
cows along the highway, and as an induce
ment for him to quit, hurled a few stones at
him, one of which, as tbe complainant testi
tied. struck him on the back of the m ck.
The testimony being concluded, the de
fendant addressed the jury as follows :
Gentlemen of the Jury : I don't know much
about law, and since the trial has bees going
on, 1 have Boncluded that I ought to kn?w a
little more. I ought to apologise, perhaps,
for appearing in my own defence, and will do
so by telliDg you, that I feed one lawyer, and
hired another, in this case, but they both come
up misBing when 1 need them most. 1 sup
pose I might havo secured the services of some
of these other 'limbs of the law' that 1 see
around me, but having been cheated by two
of 'em, I concluded to go it 'on my hook,' and
here I am 1 I want to tell you, gentlemen, be
fore 1 go farther, that it is not my fault that
this case is here taking up t6e time of this
honorable court. I think you will give me
credit for telling the truth, when I say that it
ought to have been tried before a Justice ot
the Peace, it being better adapted to the ca
pacities of such a court, than ot this one Af
ter this difficulty, Dodder did get a warrant
tor me from Squire Cuddeback, over in Deer
ark. He then charged that I had insulted
iin, but five or six months has freshened his
recollection, and he now says that 1 assaulted
and battered him. I believe there is some
difference between the two charges
Dodder says he swore to tbe complaint be
fore Squire Cuddeback, and I leave it for
you to say wnether he tell the trutb "now in
saying tnat I battered him. I wa*, taken
by a constable before tne squire, and
either because* the Justice was ashamed of
what he had already dune, or hadn't time to
attend to it. I don't know which, it went down.
Two or three weeks after that I was arrested
again, and my wife having been conlned. I
thought it best as a dutiful husband, to be
around hum, so I got rid of it by giving secu
rity for my appearance at court.
You know, gentlemen, that I am in the em
ploy of the Mongaup Valley, Forrestburg, and
Port Jervis Plank Koad Company, as a gate
keeper. This company, it seems had suffi
cient confidence in my integrity and honesty
as to place me in that important station, and
even if 1 should receive $3,000 and steal $1,600
of it, that s between me and the company,
and its none of Dodder's business Now.
when the company sent me up along this road
to collect toils, this Dodder was one of tbe in
habitants 1 found there in the woods, and I
will say for him that he is a very fair speci
men ot the rest of the population. But there
isn't any of them to appreoiate all the benefit?
ef this plank road.
It let out to civilization a class of people
who never before realized *.be idea that there
was such a thing as civilized life, and this
Dodder is one of them, it is a fs 3t that soon
alter I moved there, a young woman, 17 years
old, come down out of the mountains on the
plank road, one day, and said 6he had never
been out before, bhe fairly seemed surprised
to see a white man, and after asking a tew
questions, went buck into the woods. This
jDodderwas my nearest neighbour, and a good
deul nearer than I wanted him; and 1 hadn't
been there long, before i heard he had been
lying auont me to one of the Directors, and I
soen found out that he wanted to get his son.
who was sworn here against me, in my place.
But he hasn't done it yet,; and if you don l
convict me, I reckon he won't very soon.
It wont take long to dispose of Dodder No
2. He testifies that he saw me throw three
stones at his father, and saw the " old man
dodge." On his cross-examination he says
that he was in his own house in the woods,
and had to look over a hill twenty feet high,
and also over three slab fences and two stone
walls. VVell, if he tells the truth, all I wish
is that I had young Dodder's eyes. He is cer
tainly a remarkable boy, and can't consist-'
ently deny his '?father
I am willing to admit that i done wrong to
throw stones at Dodder, and 1 apologize to all
the world and this county particularly, for it.
fhe Doctors tell us that tbere are two cuses
tor all diseases, predispositionandexcitability;
1 think it was the latter cause that moved we
to stone Dodder. I therefore confess myself
guilty of the assault, but the battery I. deny;
and if you find me guilty of the battery I wilt
appeal from the decision to the Court of High
Heaven itself before I will submit to it.
Now. gentlemen, you saw Mr. Dodder and
heard him swear against me. I asked him a
great many quest.ons; and I iwas sorry to hear
hiin answer him as he did. I might have
asked him if he didn't kill my cat, and if he
didn't stone my chickens, because they tres
passed in his woods, where actually the rooks
are so thick that the brake's can t find their
way through them; but then I knew he would
deny it, and it would grieve me to hear him.
He admits that he was driving my thsee cows
up the road, and that he struck at one of em,
but says it was with a small switch. I have
proved that, this switoh was a pole about 10
feet long and about 3 inches across the butt
end, and I have also proved that when he
struck, the cow fell. it is true, my witness
Cfnldn't swear that the stick hit her, he was So
far off, but take the blow and the fall together,'
and we can guess the rest. If you, gentle
men, should see me point a gun at a man and
pull the trigger, see the flash and hear the re
rirt, and at the same time see the man drop,
thins you would say that I shot him, al
though you might not see the ball strike him.
Now, the fact is, gentlemen, that on Sun
day I wai laying on my lounge ia my houee,
when my wile said to me that Dodder was
chasing my oows I jumped up and pulled
on my boots and went out of dwors, and saw
Dodder and the cows coming up the road "I
is tree he says he was not driving them but
says ha and the oows was both goiag along
the road in one direction, and this was as near
ae I could get him to the cows or the truth; but
it is proved that the oows were going ahead of
him, and he wa* following after them, striking
at them, with this little switch, 10 feet long
3 inches across the butt, and 1 reckon you'll
think he was 44 driving" {hem. I sung out to
him, 44 Dodder, stoi>. but he didn t ebey my
order, and 1 just tnrew a stone in that direc
tion, which went about 10 feet over his head ;
at the same time g^u towards him, w*hhe he
was coming towan^HL He paid no attention,
and I sung out agam, " Dodder, stop,!" Still
he didn't mind me, and then I just threw
another stone; hut on be came, and on ? went,
and X threw the third stone, whioh he says hit
him in the back of his neck, but whieh l think
i? rather strange, as we ware geiug towards
each other as fast aa we oootd go. Bat be
never flacked up, and by (kit time we were
wi'hio eight feet of each other 1 halted and
hollered at the top of my voice, " Dodder,
why in don't you stopabout then
be did stop, and raited thie 10 feet ewitch, aa
it to strike me. 1 sang oat?" Mr. Dodder,

e might know something, and be say* this is
good law. Now, if you will tarn to fivbour
something, page 3M, you'll find that the same
doctrine is applied to cattle?^great laughter.)
Therefore. 1 take it. I had a right to defend"
my oows against Dodder's ten foot switch.
