GREAT CURB OF RHEUMATI8M OOWTRACTID
UNDER TROPICAL CLIMATES.
Baltimori, Md., June 4,1864.
Mr. Sockbridgt, of the Fountain Hotel. Light street,
Baltimore?
Dwr Sir : Being on the point of leaving thj city,
I avail myself of a few idle moments to thank you
kindly for the medicine you s<mt me, and #hich has
restored me to the use of my limbe. I beg you to
fcend me foijr bottles more, to carry on my voyage.
Since I had the fortune to use Dr. Hampton's Vege
table Tincture my confidrooe is so strong that, in
gratitude to the proprietors of said medicine, I beg
you to present ray respects to them, and induce
them to make it more publicly known as a sure
Rh?umaiic cure. Having called on me on the 19th
of April last, and eeen me prostrated on my bed,
uae'ees in all my li^bg, you can appreciate nearly
as w?ll as myself the prompt rwlief 1 received from
Dr. Hampton's Tincture, and lam positive had it
not bee a for your strong and forcible recommenda
tions I should still have been in bed.
It is really a pity thta specific should not be ap
proved by medical men, and like all patent drugs it
should suffer the imputation the public generally
give to sued preparations. I mvtelf, 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, friendly
recommendations, and my critisal situation that in
duced ms to try this really beneficial Vegetable
Tincture.
You may inform Messrs. Mortimer A Mowbray
that th??y *re at liberty te make use of my name in
th? supj-ert of the good effects of Dr. Hampton's
Vegetable Tincture, as it has curej me in five weeks
of a chronic Inflammatory Rheumatism, contracted
under tropical climates, and ot seven years?periodical
duration- I have oniy use<i three bottles, and find
tli* t even the deformed parts of my hands are fut
returning o tneir form* natural appearance.
I have been under tne treatment of several phy
sician* in London and Paris, without any apparent
benefit; also, while in New York, having tried the
Thompsonian and Homoepathic remedies, after hav
ing been tormented with galvanic ba'teriea, oold
an I aromatic baths, and hundreds of internal and
external medicines, all to no effect, I am, so tar,
cured by this Hampton's Vege'able Tinotur* only.
Therefore, my t>ar sir, accept of the assurance of
my gratitude, and believe mu your well wisher.
Thomas Cahot.
R1V. VERNON KsKRIDGB, U. 8. N.
Portsmouth, Va , Aug. 18,1861.
Mr. J. E. Boush?<>ear sir: While I am, in gena
ral, opposed to patent medicines, candor compels me
to state that I have great confidence in the virtues
of Hampton's Vegetable Tinctur-. For several
months past I have used it in mv family ; and in
dyspepsia, loss of appetite, dizziness, and general de
bility, with entire success. So tar as my experience
exten ds, therefore, I take pleasure in recommend
ing it to the afflicted as a safe and efficient remedy.

w ? title bestowed generally upon a stoat gen-i
#i Pin#ai<i oompi*?io?, a plethor
y*blt ?{. ^y? a *?1 toe, and a loud laugh,
whose chief business seems to be hanging
about bar-rooms, drinking at other people's
expense, and in return telling broad stories
enacting ludicrous pantomines and entertain
ing circles of companions with such gossip and
trifling as seems appropriate to the places he
frequents. He is always an amiable man
sometimes even a loveable one in many res
pects ; but his convivial habits have Ion* ago
overcome his better qualities, and he now de
?otes himself entirely to their gratification.
The Prince of Good tellows thould never be
seen before twelve o'clock in the day as up
to that time he is full of aches, sad, morose
and nervous; talks vaguely of illness and
death ; contemplates his finger naitc. sighs
rubs his eyes, and yawns, and frequently gives
utterance to the sentiment that it is a hard
world to live in, which it undoubtedly ii for
him. During this depression he resorts to al
ooholic stimulants to bring up his nerves, and
by dint of frequent repetitions of the remedial
agent and a frugal repast, eating standing
from the counter of some bar, he succeeds in
restoring a portion of the lost nervous energy
and begins to cocae out quite strong about the
hour of meridian. At this time he presents
the appearance of a jovial, pleasant happy
man, and so the superficial portion of his ad
mirers deem him, s me of them indeed, going
?o far as to envy him his lot and wish they
were as contented as he. *
At dinner the Prince of Good Fellows is
looked upon as a most desirable companion
lie knows all tho etiquette of the table and
never commits any breach of the unities of
that place. He dresses a salad with exquisite
taste and cannot be deceived in wines He
tells you the history of the olive?which he
has accidently stumbled upon in Chamber's
Miscellanies of Household Words?and has a
pleasant anecdote to fill all the pauses of con
versation. The ladies fancy him very much
for he is respectful, concedes every thing to
them, and defers to their judgment. He does
not take much while they are at table, anc
opens the door for their exit with infinite grace
Once they are gone he devotes himselt to the
decanters, and the roars of laughter that fol
low the ladies up stairs are provoked by a
smart joke of his. which would not bear re
petition in the drawing room. Still, he is not
vulgar, and a really coarse witticism actually
offends him; for he has delicate sensibilities,
and his broad style of humor grewg out of the
wine rather than naturally fram his taste
Later in the evening, when he joins the ladien
above stairs, he is attentive and marked in his
conduct towards them, turns their sausic ad
justs the pian8 stool, and if he sees a middle
aged spinster a plain or a "slow" one, neglec
ted and playing wall-flower, he is peculiarly
attractive towards her, and bores himself, ner.

bachelor, but oftener he is a married man
with several children. His wife is rarely Peen
in society, and her appearance is that cf one
out of health and much depressed in spirits
Her dresses are usually of a bygone style
and, although neat, give evidence of a rigid
economy, and many artifices to make the two
ends meet She takes the baok streets, and
the less frequented side of the way as she
walks abroad, and takes special care to avoid
passing public places where she may meet the
gate of her husband's friends. . She walks
rapidly, with her head down, and in winter
draws her scanty shawl tight about her shoul
ders, an ungloved hand showing through the
opening In front. Occasionally she may be
met coming from market with a little basket
meagerly stocked; but her husband seldom
dines at home, and she economises in her table
expenses, for he requires clean linen and neat
garments, and their purse will not afford sump
tuous^living. . r
To see him in his prime and glory you must
meet the Prine of Good Fellows at an evening
party of young men, whan supper, and wine,
and cards, and loud talk, and merriment, are
the elements of the entertainment. There he
comes out strongest; there his good fellowship
is most thoroughly developed; there he is in
his element, ftod to hear and see him one wt| d
say he was the happiest of men. The joke*
the repartees, the mirth-moving narration*'
the wit and humor which abound, aided by
brilliant lights, sparkling silver and glass
bright wines, cheerful countenances, and all'
the accessories of such a time, give an air of
enjoyment and pleasure to the soene which
may well fascinate the experienced and pass
with them as real. But if they would know
the solemn truth, if they would know h?w
false and futile is all this mockery of happi
ness, let thein tarry till the evening is spent
the lights out, the wine drank up, the part\
dispersed. Let them follow the Prince of
Good Fellows to his home. Let them listen to
his half drunken mutterings as he pursues his
lonely way, and take heed of his self-accusa
tions, his bitter revilings, his reproaches, and
vows of reformation. Let them enter with
I him the cheerless house, where wife and little
ones are paying the penalty of his sin. Let
them see the misery those sins entail; the bit
ter, pinching, want that stares out from scanty
beds, from empty eupboards, from worn and
tattered garments, fiom cheerless grates and
vriokless lamps. Let them watch the smile
tha<- play? about the wan face of the poor ne
gleoU>l? almost broken-hearted, wife, as she
kisses t>? that so lately joined in the ribald
laugh, the drunken chorus. Let them watch
the dejection that settles npon the face o?,the
Prince of Goo^l Fellows as the excitement
wears off and the *ad, bitter, truth takes pos
session of his mind?the plain, hard truth? I
that his good fellowship is killing him. bodily
and mentally?is beggaring his family, and
dragging nown a helpless woman and innocent
little children to a depth from which they can1
hardly hope to rise. Let them see the Good
Fellow in the morning, as with'shaky, nervous
feebleness he attempts to attire himself for
another day of "happiness;" eee the efforts
of the wife to make him smart and neat; hear
the whispered words of entreaty as he parts
from her upon the threshold, and the pledges
p ledges whispered back. Let them hear and
see" all this, and then say if the saddest, poor
est, thinnest, most delusive of all shams is net
that popular one, " The Prince of Uood Fel

MOBMONISM
This absurd and beastly superstition has in*
creased to such an extent in England, that it
has attracted the attention and denunciation
of the great Thunderer, the London Times.
The Times maintains that it ttf wrong to per*
mit Mormons to enjoy the titles and privileges
of Protestant Dissenters. Although the/ still
retain the name of Christians, they have vir
tually substituted Joe Smith in the place oi
the Divine Founder of Christianity, and super
eeded the Bible by the ridiculous and corrupt
book of Mormon.
It is a disgrace to modern eivilixation that
such a rank imposture as Mormonisn should be
able to obtain votaries all over the world.
The imposition is so* gross and palpable,'the
vile and profligate character of its anther wat
so notorious, that it really seems as if a
world in which such a humbug could gain
credence, must be in its first or second child.
hood. ' ?.
There is no denying, and no pretence now
of denying, the univenal practioe of polyga
my among the Mormons. Such a custon
could never have been engrafted upon West
ern aiviliiation, except from the vilest a#<
most abominable passions. Not only is everj
Mormon permitted to have as many wives a
be thinks proper, but the head of the ehurel
cad diverse the parting whenever be sees fit,
and permit the wife to take a new husband,
as well as the husband a new wife, so that
the practical operations of the system is Com
munism ia its mos; odious abomination. The
Mormons, in effeot. address to the men and
women of their association, the language of
Socialism : 4 You are now delivered from the
restraints of eiTilitation, whieh are evil ;
henoeforth your passions are to be your only
guides, and the satisfaction of the* yoar in
heritance ; only enter with seal upon your
heritage, and act yourselves out !* The whole
doctrine etf Mormanism is, like Saint Simon
ism, 'a hideous promiscuity.1 Yet, like those
precious moralists, they have the sublime au
dacity to declare that their doe trine prevents
vice. To which it may be easily answered, in
the language of an opponent or Saint Simon
ism to a similar boast. 'It is true, that under
your system, there will be no more adultery,
for vice will be lefrttimatistd, rtAuttd. To a
rule. It is in this sense only that you can
say there will be no more adultery '
It Ii high time that the United States Gov
ernment should withdraw all oountenance and
encouragement from the Mormons. Brigbam
Young, the Governor, openly defies the Exec
utive of this country to remove him. He ought
to tee removed without delay, and a new Gov- -
ernor appointed as well as other territorial
officers, who have no sympathy with the Mor
mons, and one or two regiments of United
States soldiers ought to be sent to Utah, U>sup
port the authority of the new Governor, in case
Brigham Young should raise the standard of
rebellion. There is no persecution in tais.
Whig and Democratic administrations gener
ally remove men from office for a simple dif
ference of opinion on political subjeots. Here
is a Governor who is striking at the very roots
of oiviliaation, morality, and common decen
cy, and who is in the habit of daring the Pres
ident of the United States to remove him lie
ought to be at once deposed, and every act
which can be constitutionally perfo.me'' by
every branch of the Government, to wipe ou?
this foul blot upon the country and the age,
ought, without hesitation, to be performed.
Gbttisg a Bits.?A sea Captain "down
east,'' a regular "old salt,'1 relates the follow
ing as one of his fishing experiences:
Uiioe with a friend ho went out .0 oatoh hal
ibut. His companion prided hunseit on his
skill in the business, and a {rivalry arose be
tween the two friends as to which should cap
ture the first fish Having dropped anchor
and lines they waited with ishermen's pa
tience for a bite; but for a long time none
came
At length the countenanoe of the captain's
companion begin to lighten up; and present
ly he called out :
'?I've got one!"
He commenced hauling in with great vigor
"He must be a large one," said he, "a hun
dred pound fellow, at least. He pulls stontly
I tell you."
It was. indeed, evident that a big fellow
was at the other end of ,k* ><bv, k was
soou discover*! tnat it was to be no easy mat
ter tp r.auture him. m
him on?' "l ^ K-' lire
Accordingly he gave him line which was
carried off rapidly. Soon the excited fisher
man began to haul in again, making sure of
his victim this time.
"Stand by, captain!" said he, "with the
boat hook, and hook him in the gills when be
comes up Get well braced, for he's a roarer "
The captain accordingly braced himself for
>a tug. boat hook in hand, and waited impa
tiently for the moment of capture His exoi
ted comrade wa? yet palling carefully and
slowly at the line, lest it should bts broken
and eagerly watohing for the first appearance
of the priae. when suddenly a ' a sea change "
came ever his features, and dropping tue liue
he exclaimed : *
"Je-rew-sa lem ' Captain, it's the anchor!"
Ihe Captain went down in a shower of
laughter, and it was a long day before the
fisherman heard the last of catching an an
chor "playing it out,'' and "letting it run nil
it got tired."
Live Withiji Yosr Mba>s.?We don't like
stinginess. We don't like economy, when if
comes down to rags and starvation. We have
no sympathy wita the notion thai the poor
man should hitch himself to a post and stand
still, while the rest of the world moves for
ward. It is no more duty to deny himself
every amusement, every luxury, every recre
ation, every oomfortthat be may get rich It
is no man's duty to make an iceburg of him
self, to shut his eyes and ears to the sufferings
of his follows, and to deny himself the e^joy
ment ihat results from generous actions
merely that he may board wealth for his heirs
to quarrel about. But ihere is an eoonouiy
which is every man's duty, and which is espe
cially commendable in the man who struggles
with poverty?un eoonomy which is consistent
with happiness, and which must be practiced
it the poor man would secure independence.
It is almost every man's privilege, and it bo
oomes his duty to live within his means ; not
up to, but within them. Wealth does not
make the man, we admit, and should ne\er be
taken into the account in our judgment of
men; but competence should always be se
cured when it can be, by the practioe of ocou
oiny and self denial to only a tolerable extent.
It should be secured, not ao muon fos others
to look upon, or to raise us in the estimation
of others, as to secure the consciousness of u
dependence, and the constant satisfaction
wmch is derived from its acquirement and
possession.
Yellow Fever Story.?The following am
using incident is related by a correspondent :
A gentleman from the country, \.ho had
been in Port Gibson some time during the
first week of the epidemic and was riding
home at a pretty smart gait, was brought up
by a man running out of his house ani inqui
ring :
' Say, have they got the rale yellow fever
in town ?''
"Oh, yes. There's no doubt of that, I reok
on," was the answer.
"And is it a fact, they've got the quar..n- ?
tine *long with it T' I'll swar, it's bad enough
to have one disease, without bavin' .not", er
to help it along!"
This filled the gentleman on the road "toe
full of utterance/; and putting the switch to
his horse, he was off to make the woods re
sound with his pent up laughter. Beaching
bis destination ne must tell it to a friend, ?
plain honest hearted man, who, however, had
negieoted the "rudiments." Ti e incident
was too good to keep and so he related it.
"Haw, haw, haw T" roared the honest John.
"Why, dod darn the aU-fired fool's som to
