Baltimore? l>ear Sir: Being on the point of laying th# city, I avail myself of a few idl- moments to thank von kindly for the medicine you s?nt me, and *hl-hhaa restored ore to the nee of my limbs. I beg you to send me four botties more, to carry on my voyaee. <3i< ce I had the fortune to use Dr. Hampton's ve^e table Tincture my confidence ta bo strong that, in latitude 10 the proprietors of said medicine, I be* you to present my respects to them, and induce them to make it more publicly known as a sure Khtnunaiic cure. Having called on me on the 19th of April last, and feen me prostrated on my bed, useless in all mv li ubs, yon can appreciate nearly ?s wrll as myself th* prompt relief I received from ! l>r. Hampton's Tincture, and I am positive had it 1 not been lor your strong and forcible recommenda tions I should still have b<?en In bed. It is really a pity this ?picific should not be ap proved by medical men, and like all patent drugs it fhould suffer the imputation the public generally 1 give to such preparations. I mytelf, who was al ways opposed to a patented specific, took this medi cine with reluctance, and without confidence in it, and it was only through your disinterested, friendlv recommendations, and my critisal situation that in duced me to try this really beneficial Vegetable | Tincture. 6 You may inform Messrs. Mortimer A Mowbray that they ant at liberty te make use of my name in th* suppert of tb* good effects of Dr. Hampton's Vegetable Iincture, as it has cured me in five wetks of a chronic Inflammatory Rheumatism, contracted i under tropical climates, and of seven years"periodical duration. I have only used threw bottles, and find that even the deformed parts of my hands are foet eturnmg o their former natural appearance I have been under tue treatment of several phy sicians in London and Paris, without any apparent benefit; also, while in New Ycrk, having tried the Thompsonian and Homoepathic remedies, after hav ing been tormented with galraaio batteries, cold and aromatic oaths, and hundreds of internal and external medicines, all to no effect, I kb, bo Jar cured by this Hampton's Vege'able Tincture only! Therefore, my J ear sir, accept of the assurance of my gratitude, and believe me your well wisher. Thomas Can or. REV. VERNON J58KRIDGE, U. 8. N. M T ? Portsmouth, Va, Aug. 48,1811. Mr. J. E. Boush?Hear sir: While I am, in gene ral, opposed to patent medicines, candor compels me to "tate that I have great confidence in the virtues I of Hampton's Vegetable Tincture. For several months past I have used It in my family ; and in dyspepsia, lose of appetite, dizziness, and general dt* ' y> with entire success. Ho far as my experience extents, therefore, I take pleasure in recommend ing it to the afflicted as a safe and efficient remedy.

You may publish it or not, at your option : "Cards were originally invented in Egypt: though the current opinion of the present day is, that they were invented aoout a century or two back, and first used tor the amusement of a young French Prince. That cards. how ever, are of the high origin above assert&i. if easily proved by their numbers, suites, aud characters, corresponding strictly with tiie | astronomical signs and calculations of the au cient Egyptians, who aro acknowledged to j have been better acquainted with the motions I of the heavenly bodies, than any other nation that ever existed. But to the proof : ^ The colors are two, red and black, answer I ing to the two equinoxes The suites are four, answering to the four seasons. The emblems of these formerly were and still are in Spain, for the heart a cup which is emblematical of winter; for the spaai an acorn, the emblem of autumn ; fortheclul a trefoil, the emblem of summer; and for the diamond a ro^e, which is the emblem of sprin-*" The twelve court cards answer to tho twelve months, and these were formerly painted with the Bigns of the Zodiao. The fifty two cards, or whole pack, answer to the number of weeks in the year. The thirteen cards in each suite answer to the number of weeks in a lunar quarter.

Water, water, w?8 the incessant cry. And although the Hudson on one side ol the camp, poured along its silen' waters, and the rapid s.ream of Pish Creek roared sweetly in the ears of the sick and desponding forces, yet it was imposabie to snatch a drop from these dreadfully guarded waters; a hundred bullets were sure to pier.-e whoever made the attempt, soon as' tbev Slo ?ped to touch the silver current. But *uch were the cries for water, by tne sick and dying that their women, moved by pity, were made superior to the dreadtul crisis (imagining that the Americans would not, from feelings wt gallantry shoot a temale.) snatched Lastiiv their pails, and ran to the shores to try what the event nught be 'lheir opinion of the enemy, as it proved, with respect to tnoir per sons, was eoirectiy foruied, but their paiii, were doomed to a harder fate, for while ihey couid not find it in their hearts to spill the blood of defenceless females, they-wero sure to riddle their pails as they hung from their hands, so that little or no water could be pro oured.
