Kindly for the medicine you s?nt me, ud which his
restored ae to the use of my limb*. I beg yon to
?end me four bottles more, to carry on my voyage.
Sinoe I had the fortune to use Dr. Hampton's Vege
table Tincture my confidence is so strong that, in
gratitude io the proprietors of said medicine, I beg
you to present my respect* to them, and induce
them to make it more publicly known aa a sure
Rhxumatic cure. Having called on me on the 19th
of April last, and teen me prostrated on my bed,
useless in all my liaibs, you can appreciate nearly
*s Well as myself the prompt relief I received from
Dr. Hampton's Tincture, and I am positive had it
not been lor your strong and forcible recommenda

It is really a pity this specific should not be ap
proved b.r medical men, and like ftll patent drugs it
should suffer tbe imputation the public generally
giva to such preparations. I mytelf, who was al
ways opposed to a patented specific, took this medi

and it was only through your disinterested, friendly
recommendations, and my critical situation that in

You may inform Messrs. Mortimer A Mowbray
that they are at liberty te make use of my name ia
th< support of the good effects of Dr. Hampton's
Vegetable Tincture, as it has cured me in five weeks
of a chronic Irtfiammatory Rheumatism, contracted
under tropical climate*, and of seven years'periodical
duration. I have only used three bottles, and find
1 that even the deformed,parts of my hands are fast
returning o their former natural appearance.
I have been nnder the treatment of several phy
sicians in London and Paris, without any apparent
benefit; also, while in New Ycrk, having tried the
Thompsonian and Homcepathic remedies, after hav
ing been tormented with galvanic ba'teries, ool.j
and aromatic baths, and hundreds of internal and
external medicines, all to no effect, I am, so far,
oured by this Hampton's Vegetable Tincture only. ,
Therefore, my -ear sir, accept of the assurance of
gratitude, and believe me yout well wisher.

Mr. J. E. Boush?near sir: While I am, in gene
ral, opposed to patent medicines, candor compels me
to state that I have great confidence in the virtuf-s
of Hampton's Vegetable Tincture. For several
months past I have used it in my family; and in
dyspepsia, loss of appetite, diuinees, and general de
bility, with entire success. 80 far as my experience

How to Judge a Horse
The foIl9wing_rules for judging thecharac

An Egyptian Lady
She wore, first, a chemise of some thin
white material, with loo?e sleeves, embroider-!
ed round the edge, hanging over her hande;
then a large pair of crimson silk trowsers, ao
long and wide, that they entirely concealed
her bare feet; then came a garment like the
?Turkish an eree, descending to the feet before
hanging in a train behind, and opeuing at the
sides, with long sleeves open from the wrist to
the elbow, and failing back so as to display
those of the chemise beneath. This (Tree's
was made of crimson damask, and embroider
ed all round the edge with block braidiog, and
was confincd?not at the wrist, but over the
hips?with an ? Indian shawl, wound two or
three times round, and knotted before. The
last was a jicket, reaching only to the waipt
with half sleeves, made of exceedingly rich
stuff or dark blue silk, embroidered all over
a running pattern, with gold, and edged with'
gold braiding and buttons Three large silver
amulet-cases, containing charms, were huce
over the shawl-girdle.
The head-dress is the prettiest part of the
Egyptian costume?and Sofia's was exceeding,
ly rich. Her hair was divided into twenty or
thirty small braids, hanging over her shoul
ders, to the end of whicb are affixed three silk
cords strung with gold coins of various kites
wo rows of gold coins, as large as half-crown
pieces laid close together, encircled her fore
bead, and at each temple were suspended
smaller ones, with an agate ornament in the
middle. The back of her head was covered
with a small tgyptian Fee, ornamented with
a large Cfioors of solid gold, and bound on by
a handkerchief of embroidered crape She
wore two necklaces of large gold coins, thick
ly strung together, and each individual piece
of money suspended from a massive ornament
in the form of a fish; one of these necklaces
was long, and the other just encircled her
throat; and between them was a string of
btads of Egyptian agates, as large as birds'
eegs, and strung together with golden links
Her ear rings were of gold filigree, in the
bhape of flowers; and her bracelets?of which
she wore several?of massive gold and silver
We oomputed that she carried about three
hundred and fifty pounds on her person, in
coins alone, without including her other or
naments.?Mrs. Homer's Pilgrimage.
Converting Indians.
The following anecdotes illustrate the pro
priety of giving barbarous nations the exam
ples as well as the precepts of religion, mo
wlity, and industry. A chief of one of the
Worth American tribes was solicited to admit
a -trench missionary to convert more of his
subjects. "No," said the chief, "there are
tn0 many converted there already; my praying
subjects have aU of them forgot to pay me
their taxes." J
A British American priest attempting to
convert an Indian, the inhabitant of the forest
turned "hortupon him, and replied sharply:
"When I find that the English are good bj
xceans of the religion they profess, I will thet
adopt the same When Igo to Quebec to sell
myturs," continued the Indian, "the town
people do not ask me to their houses, and en
tertain me as we do them. When they visii
our country, we kindle a fire to warm th<
stranger, we spread a mat upon which viand;
are heaped for his food, and when the hour o
rest draws near, furs for his bed and his re
pose. What is our return from the christians

and drink, they inquire whether or not I hay
got money to pay for them; and show me ai
account of the expense, instead of taking i
friendly farewell, when I am going to depart
The fur merchant, of whose house I ealle<
upon the babbath, told me he would transac
no commercial business upon that holy day; a
the same time, he hinted that he would no
give me above a certain prioefor the furs. H
went to ehuroh, at which I muoh rejoiced
seeing the good things he was to hear migfa
soften his heart, and induce him to give me
more conscientious prioe. Having nothing t
do, I went to church likewise; but the congre
gation stared at me so tbat I went out agaii
and waited at the church-door for my mei
chant. I oould hear the priest speaking wit
great *Vfebemence; no doubt, said I to myselj
be is desiring them to be honest and fair i
their dealings, both to their God and to th
Indians Well, my merchant at last can

before. .Now it was evident from tbia what

Man, unlets he be guided and governed by
principles which are deep rooted in the soul
and unyielding, is a most forlorn creature.
Without these he is contemptible, more de
graded, more abject, than the beasts that per
ish. Endowed with intelleotual capacity
pofHBing a soul that ie destined " to outlive
th*Wrs' ?set forward on the race-course of
life by a spark of etherial fire, reinitiated by
D;ety itself?he is capable of attaining his
natural right, a rank but " little lower than
the angels " Peculiarly exposed to fascin
ating temptation ; beset around with difficul
ties and dangers; prone as is human nature to
err and oommit evil; there is no way by whieb
be can maintain the dignity of hit nature un
spotted exoept by drinking deep and imbibing
thoroughly some tangible principles; and to
these he must adhere with unswerving tena
city ! These principles must be sought with
out the preoinotsof his own bosom?they should
be the deductions of the past experience of
mankind, and the result is. they have their
foundation in truth. With such principled
tor a foundation, the toad of folly and corrup
tion will not be his.
Mankind have political as well as moral ob
ligations resting on them, and they are not so
disconnected as may seem at the first blush
they are intimately entwined with each other',
and a dereliction of the one involves the other
to a certain extent. It is in vain to attempt
to throw off either. Action, in referenoe to
both, has its reward* and its punishments. We
admit that moral obligations claim the first,
and consequently the highest consideration ?
" Be just and fear not; to all tfce ends thou
aimest at be thy Country's, thy God's, and the
truth " Next to the moral we rank bis poli
tical obligation in importance, and in refer
ence to them we would say, we should be as
enduring as the heavens
An Original Anecdote.?The Portland Ar
gus relates that Capt. K.. a shrewd steamboat
eaptfin from the State of Maine, eanght a
?' Jeremy Diddler on board his boat one day,
as he was making from Boston to "downcast/*
and pinned him up in go?d style. It seems
the tellow laid a traverse to get clear of pay
ing his fare, but insisted to the clerk that he
had paid, but lost his ticket.
" Whom did you pay?" asked the clerk,
tie rather guessed it was the captain, so K.
was summoned to the oonferenoe.
''Oh. yes, yes, ' said Captain K., "it ap
pears to me I do recollect. Let me see; you
gave me a five dollar bill!"
U-V'es,'' says the Diddler, "I did."
" And I gave you your change in half dol
lar*, didn't I?" (The fare was only half a
dollar?competition very high )
44 Yes,"' says Jeremy,44 that's it?I recollect
it perfectly.''
" Very well," says Capt. K., " I won't dis
pute your word for anything?but if you
please, I should tiic? to tee the luUv**V
The fellow was tripped when he least ex
pected it. He oould not produce the halves,
and had te fork out his fare.
ty In consequence of the great scarcity of
mackerel this year, the prices of No. I's and
2 s have reached in Bos'on, the highest point
for years, via : from $17 to $18 per bbl , and
the prospects are that in the spring they will
advance to $20. The English fishermen have
done comparatively nothing this year, and
the catch by the Massachusetts fishermen
must fall off more than 60 per eent. from that
of 1863. The business at many plaoee, such
as Newburyport, Cohas^et, llingham. Ac., has
been sa disastrous that another year it will
probably be given up. and the whole business
will finally ceotre at Gloucester.
15digestibility of Sour ? It isasserted by
a late medical writer, that soup, with the ex
ception of the vegetable matters and shreds of
meat that float in it, is entirely indigestible in
the stomachs of children. The stomach
d gefts only solid food, even milk being coagu
lated into a curd to undergo this process, and
yet there are many farmers who have long
sice given up the idea of raising fine calves on
buy tea. who give their children soup for din
ner, under the idea that it is very nourishing.
