Baltimore, Feb. 9th, 1852.
Messrs. Mortimer &l Mowbray—Gen lemen
It is with real pleasure that I am able to attest to
the general healing and curative powers of Dr.
Hampton's Vegetable Tincture. Some time du
ring last November I was taken with a very bad
and serious cough. I was advised to take Ccd
Liver Oil, and did 60, but getting no better, I was
induced to try your Tincture. I got one bottle,
and before I had used it all my cough left me. Per
mit me a : so to state that for the last 15 years I
have suffered very much from Acute Rheumatism
and Vertigo, confining me, at times, to my bed. 1
am fully convinced that I owe my present good
health to the use of the Tincture and a kind Provi
You are, my friends, at liberty to use this as you
may think proper, and believe me
Yours, very respectfully, G. DUNAN.

Mr. J. B. BOU3H: —Sir, While I am in generaioj
posed to Patent Medicines, candor compels me to
state, that 1 have great confidence in the virtues of
Hampton's Vegetable Tincture. Forsever
al months past I have used it in my lainily, and it
dyspepsia, loss of appetite, dizziness and general
debility, with entire success. So far as my expe
rience extends therefore, I take pleasure in recon -
mending it to the afflicted as a safe and efficiei t
remedy. lam respectfully yours,

Still Another Witness for Hnmpton's
Vegetable Tincture.—This certificate is from
one of our largest and most enterprising farmers
— the owner of those splendid oxen exhibited at
the late Agricultural Fair, and who, in person, done
the ploughing, with the tame, that took the pre
mium. We mention this,as before Mr. Horne took
the Tincture, his condition was such as to despair
of even visiting the fair, much less taking such a
laborious part as he did, to the astonishment of
those who had seen his state a short time before.
Baltimuhe, February 4, 1p52.
Messrs. Mortimer Sc. Mowbray—Gents: Having
been afflicted with Chronic Inflammatory Rheuma"
ti.-m for some time, in it* worst form, I tried every
remedy that came witlrn my reach, without any
success ; in fact, my sufferings increased with every
new remedy I tried, until 1 was scarcely able to
walk, from the dreadful pains and swelling in my
limbs. 1 had also an ulcer formed on my right
wrist, which gave me intense pain.
When in this condition, Mr. Scott, Conductor on
the Susquehanna Railroad, with several others,
called my attention to the many wonderful curej
made by Hampton's Vegetable Tincture. I deter
mined to give it a trial, as a last resort. You well
remember my sufferings at the time I got the Tinc
ture from you—they were almost past endurance.
I am happy now to inform you, that in r short
time after taking it, I was relieved from pain, ind
could walk without difficulty, and in about four
weeks I was enabled to take part in the ploughing
match at our late Agricultural Fair. The ulcer on
my wrist is now entirely cured, and I am in the
enjoyment of the very best health, with no symp
toms of my old disease. All of which I fed bound
to say, I owe to the great healing and restorative
powers of Hampton's Vegetable Tincture.
My great confidence in it has induced me to re
commend if to others, and 1 have also seen its good
effectJ in a number of cases. My little daughter,
who had been in bad health for some time, no me
dicine seamed to reach her case, or to do her any
good, until I gave her this Tincture of Hampton's,
which soon restored her to robust health. 1 do,
therefore, cheerfully bear my testimony in favor of
this valuable medicine, and 1 wish you to send me
a dozen bottles, that I may always have it at hand.
Yours, respectfully, ELISHA P. HORNE,

WE bring glad TIDINGS of great joy
TO THE halt, the lame, the soke,
AND HIE STIFF-JOINTED—The action of this
Liniment upon the human organization is truly
wonderful Its volatile, penetrating, soothing and
healing properties diffuse themselves to the very
bones. It enters into the circulation of the blood,
gives a new impulse to the whole nervous system'
stimulates the absortents and secretion', and thus
assists nature to throw off and rid herself of any
diseased action of the nervous chords or ligaments,
making it equally applicable to sores of any kind'
rheumatism, or PAINS IN ANY PART OF THE
BODY, giving abundant reasons of its great effi
cacy in so many different diseases. While it is
perfectly harmless to healthy flesh, skin or bone, it
acts upon scientific pcinciples and FIXED LAWS
OF IHE CREATION. Were this Linimant
known here, it would be useless to give any account
of the very many cures it has performed in the
Western States, but a very brief statement ol a few
may prove satisfactory here.
A shocking Bnrn.
William Milner, P. M„ Mount Moriah, la., Oct.
llth, says: "His young child walked into afire,
(made out doors for washing,) and fell down into
the fire with his hands and face, and was shockingly
burned Two bottles of the Mustang Liniment per
fectly cured the child in a few days."
Inflamed and Caked Breasts.
Mrs. 8., ot St. Louis, white nursing a young
child, one nipple became very sore, and the breast
inflamed, and caked very hard. A few applications
of the Mustang Liniment healed the nipple, re
moved the hardness and inflammation, aud the
breast was well in a few days.
Salt Rheum.
Mrs. Anna M. Price, of St. Louis, has been af
flicted for years with Salt Rheum in her hands.—
They were inflamed and swollen, with painful itch
ing and burning. Sometimes the irritation would
subside, and the skin would peel off, and large and
frightful cracks would open almost to the bones.
After long trial with the Doctors, a few bottles per
fectly cured her.
Mrs. Hughes, of st. Louis, had a very severe
attack of Inflammatoiy Rheumatism in the back,
shoulders, and arms tor ten days, without getting
any relief from her physicians, wu9 cured with two
fifty cents bottles of the Mustang Liniment.
We only ask a fair trial of this valuable Lini
ment in the cure of Strains, Bruises, Cuts, Galls,
Scratches, Sweny, Pole, Evil, Fistula, Big Head,
Spavin, King Bon.-, Wind Galls, Cracked Heels, or
any wound, stillness, or enlargement of bone or
muscle in horses. We have many certificates to
those cures, and, therefore, am confident it will
give perfect satisfaction, and effect all we recom
mend for it.

HE FINE ARTS.—To the Admirers
and Lovers of well-cut heads of Hair.
—The occupation of the subscriber leads him daily
to meet with heads of Hair cut in the best style, at
the very seats ot fashion.
The perfection of the polite arts consist* in ex
pression, the magical influence of which is addressed
either to the ear, in modulated sound, or to the eye,
in form, color, attitude, Ac. But the original ex
pression of nature is wild, and it can only be softened
by those touches of art which impart grace and dig
nity to the features. No art is so successful in
as that which the subscriber professes, namely:
Hair Cutting and Dressing; in other words, the
skilful arrangement of those luxuriant tresses with
which nature has decorated the seat of human intel
lect. Every painter and sculptor, aa well as the sub
scriber, is aware that the exprersion of the human
countenance is, in a great degree, dependent upon
this arrangement of the Hair, and they always pay n
strict regard to it.
The subscriber may always be found at his DRES
SING-ROOM, in the basement story of the

Mrs. B. B. Norris: Dear Madam—lt gives me
great pleasure in recommending to public fsvor
your valuable medicine (Cedar Tar) as an excel
lent preventative or curative in the first signs of
bronchial affections, or diseases of the lungs, and
also as a very valuable tonic.
Yours, very respectfully,
Home Testimony.
Dr. William C. Crump, Dentist, of this city, ha*
been suffering from Consumption of the Lungs for
the list five or six years, and has tried almostevery
article recommended in his case, without any real
benefit. When the Cedar Tar was advertised for
sale in this city, he purchased a bottle, and imme
diately derived benefit from its healing and strength
ening properties. At the lime he commenced ta
king it, he was very low, inasmuch that he waa
obliged to give up his office for practice. He 1*
now so much relieved, that he U able to attend to
bis patients, and, by continuing the medicine, he
confidently hopes to be fully restored. Dr. C. hu
kindly volunteered that his case should be made
public, that others might be benefitted. There are
others who are taking the Cedar Tar with decided
benefit, who can be referred to, besides a number
of Physicians in Baltimore, who are administering
it in their daily praetiee.
