And in further confirmation of his claim to public confidence, in reference to the claims of this medicine and the pamphlet accom panying it, we present to the public the following certificate of a number of highly respectable citi zens, of the county of his long residence, besides others of different sections. WE, the undersigned,do hereby certify that Dr. JOHN DUVAL has been a resident of the county of King &.

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 absor tents and secretions, 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 efficacy in so many different diseases. While it is perfectly harmless to healthy flesh, skin or bone, it acts upon scientific principles and FIXED LAWS OF THE CREA TION. Tiie large number of cases in which this Liniment has proved its great value in the short time it has been in Virginia, is sufficient to give the greatest confidence, that its virtues are incompara ble in the cure of Rheumatism, Bruises, Sprains, Burns, Wounds, Swellings. Broken and Caked Breast, old Sores, &c. Testimony from the South. Savannah, Feb'y sth, 1852. Having been afflicted with acute Rheumatism for sometime, and tried several of the most popular medicines of the day, also under medical advice, and received no relief until 1 tried the MUSTANG LINIMENT, and much to my surprise, I received immediate kelief ; and I am confident, that by a few more applications of this truly celebrated Lini ment. I shatl be entirely cured; and I advise all who are afflicted, to try the Mexican Mustang Liuiment (Signed.) A. FREEMAN. Ship Masters, Read! New Obleans, Feb'y 21st, 1851. I t»ke pleasure in eiviig my testimony in tavot of the MUSTANG LINIMENT. I have used it in a great many cases with satisfaction. I would par ticularly recommend it to the notice of .MASTERS OF VESSELS, of all kinds, as surpassing all other external applications within my knowledge for Pains, Bruises, Cuts, Burns, Sores and Rhcuma tisin, &c. <fcc.

READ!

"The Tenth Legon." published at Woodstock, Va., January 10,1850, said— " A Great Medicine." " We have uniformly refrained from recommend ing to the public any of the various Patent It sdi cines of the day. unless thoroughly convince of their value.

The wild rose and the jessamine Are twined tbout my hair, Aad pale amid their leaves of green The valley lilies fair- 8 And toft against my bappy brow The drooping violets lean— " own w «os« dewy beauty Might grace the fairest queen ! They smile to see the gladness That lightens all my face, They say I wear my coronal, j truth, with royal grace— And they gaily bow before me, And willing tribute pay «r£ e brightest of the blossoms That bless the sunny May. may feel my heart is happy, The* may see my step is light, ■But iney know not why my pulses Beat less lightly yesternight— They know not that the simple dower * 1 wear within my breast, brighter and a dearer bloom Than glows in all the rest. They thought me all alone When I wandered down the lane— They knew not that the sunlight On the path flung shadow* twain— Taey did not hear the voice I heard, In low, sweet accent say: " Tbou'rt ever crowned within my heart. And mak'st it always May!" ATTEMPTING TO BUY AN EDITOR. [From the London Timea, April 5.] i The VValpolian theory was that every man hail bis price. No matter how stern his pro bity—how transcendent his patriotism—there was a point at which the power of temptation overcame the power of resistance. The temp tation must, of course, be adapted to the cir cumstances and temper of the person whose acquiescence is desired. You would not of fer Lucifer, •'the son of the morning," a bun dle of railway scrip, nor endeavor to win over Mr. Cobden with the promise of an Irish peer age. The amount of temptation judged suffi cient affords a certain rough approximation to the probable value of the venal support.— Under these circumstances, it is mortifying to find oneselfset at too low a figure. Rascaldom has its hierarchy, and the greatest knave feels a certain pride in his proficiency in dishonest arts. It is not, therefore, without a certain degree of wounded vanity that we have to in form our readers that the sum at which our support is valued is precisely £100. Acer tain Mr. G. Kemp, of 2 Bath road, Chelten ham, has opened our eyes on this point, and taught us a great lesson of humility for the future. It would appear that this plain spok en individual i 3 greatly interested in the pro gress and prosperity of the Caledonian and Lancashire and Yorkshire lines. From the general tenor of his letter we would infer that Mr. G. Kemp, has heavy investments in the above industrial undertakings, and that from particular circumstances connected with the 1 lines, within his own knowledge, he would not ] be sorry to sell out at a premium. How was this little scheme to be carried out? Oh! Mr. Kemp, Mr. Kemp, could you not have called meetings of your brother shart ho'd> rs?—could you not have depicted the position and pros pects of the line in the most rosy colors, and caused the reports of your eloquence to be distributed for general circulation? If noth ing but thecolumns of the Times would serve your turn, is not our advertising office open to the public? and might you not have laid your own case, in your own way, before our rea ders for a very moderate charge ? Such a sum as £100 will go a long way in advertisements. Would nothing content you but tampering with our integrity, and procuring us to puff ofl your cracked crockery and damaged fish, for a certain remuneration, to be dexterously slip ped into our own editorial hands ? Are we sunk so low as St. Alban's? Has Mr. Cop pock got his eye upon us ? Are we hence forth to be the blind agents of every knave and fool within the Queen's peace? To be sure we are to have a share of the spoil—although the share allotted to us in Mr. G. Kemp's communication does not at all sug gest to our minds the prospect of p< rraanent gain. That worthy individual should consider with himself that humbugs and ilhpostures of all kinds have, necessarily, but a short term of existence. If we once take to lying and puff ing, we must do it on a gigantic scale, or elae it will not answer our purpose in a commercial point of view. Three months would be along period to assign to our influence, if it were, in reality, based on dishonest arts. We should, therefore, havetto ask ourselves what would be the value of the purchase money of this jour nal, and contrive to realise it within the period named, or else we should be losers by the spe culation. After all, a aale in market-overt might auswer out purpose as well. Surely the most stupid rogue would prefer a sum of money honestly gained to an equivalent ac companied with los* of character and disgrace. Mr. G. Kemp has evidently graduated in Pecksniffian school. He begins his letter with a little dexterous flattery. Mr. Kemp is the fox—we are the crow—and The Times the lump of cheese in the fable. "Sir," saya he, "as I am, together with several other gentle men," (a pretty society they must be) "sup porters of your paper, the influence of which is beyond question" (exactly worth £Koj "more powerful than that of any other journal extant, and as the abundance of money, the Unproved condition of railway property, the influx of gold, all tend to enhance the market able value of railway prospects"—ergo, in puffing a particular line we shall not only be subserving Mr. Kemp's particular interests, and pocketing a quiet £100 for our own be hoof; but we shall absolutely be rendering the public a service. Oh! wonderful concord be tween public and private interests, between shuffling and duty ! "As manv may not be able to see their advantage," Mr. G. Kemp proceeds,"in buying this description of prop erty now at once—." We expected at thia point an exhortation to indoctrinate the public in a general way upon the necessity of rush ing to Capel-court nowj»t once. We presume Mr. G. Kemp to be only a goose—but, mark the conclusion, "I write to offer your accept* ance of £100 on behalf of myself and (friends, provided you will allow the insertion as a 'lead er' of an article," <fcc. The precious compen sation in question is one not only bearing on railway interests in general, but "particularly having reference (tie in efisMa) to the im proved condition o( the Caledonian and Lan cashire and Yorkshire lines." Mr. G. Kemp coolly winds up,"lo case of your declining I should endeavor to attempt other meau to ob tain ao desirable a result." He had better ,l7 Sueh is a specimen of the folly to which all persons, in ibtf position of conductors of a public Journal, aw necessarily from time t® time est nosed. Tbe thing would not be of much con sequenoe in itself, but that foobah people art found to believeaseertions to Ox teat, would infallibly tneet with the aaae re •uli as thin politic BMinautreor Mr. G. Knap We have beard it currently reported that The Timet has received money from Prince Met t;ruich and Prince Schwarzenberg. It has been stated that an agent of the Russian Czar S5J* i S i een ,n n .'ghts dodging about the blind alleys of Printing-hocse-square, with a bag of roubles at his necTu A didactic old Gen tleman, in the bow windows of the cluba, will repeat this legend to some ancient quidnunc, and the assertion will meet implicit belief!— rime was, when, on the continent of Europe a man would have been accepted as a mere simpleton who would have ventured to suggest the slightest doubt upon such a point. Well we have outlived this. We remember at a more recent period, when we were directing a steady fire upon the Smithfield nuisance, that the mo tive ascribed to our opposition was that we had invested largely in the Islington market. We have outlived this charge too. It is clear enough that if you attack an abuse, all per sons interested in the perpetuation of the abuse will tax you with dishonesty. You cannot give expression to public opinion withoutrunning counter to the schemes and rascalities of many individuals. So long, however, as we are able to maintain our posi tion by a fair and straightforward course, it matters but little that silly or dishonest people assign to us a very different class of motives. The truth is, they do not believe themselves in their own assertions, or, if they do, they can not impress their convictions upon the minda of others. Let jobbers and mystery-mongers say what they will, they will never convince the public that this journal is conducted under dishonest influences. We shall be the first to know the fact, if they should ever meet with success. The preitige of good-faith and fear lessness once gone, and the days of our pros perity would be numbered indeed. But we should be fools as well as rogues if we risked an annual circulation of 12,000,000, and a gross income equal to that of a flouiahing German principality, for any favors that em peror, king, minister, or party confer. And so we beg respectfully to decline Mr. G. Kemp's offer of £100. A TEMPERANCE ANECDOTE. A favorite temperance lecturer, "down South," used to relate the following anecdote, to illustrate the influence ofa bad exanmpleia the formation of habits, ruinous in their ef fects: Adam, and Mary his wife, who lived In one of the old States, were very good members of the church, good sort of folk 9 any way, quite industrious and thriving in the world, and Mary thought a great deal of the minister, and the minister thought a good deal of a glass of good toddy. \ Whenever the minister called to make Mary a visit, which was pretty often, she eoutriveii to have him a glass of toddy made and the miu ister never refused to imbibe. After a while Adam gut following the example of the minis ter to such an extent, that he became a drunk* ard—drunk up everything he had, and ail he could get. Mary and he beeame vary poor in consequence ofhis following the minister's ex ample so closely; but the good minister con tinued his visits, and poor Mary continued still togive him a glass of toddy. One day he called in and told Mary that he was going away for a week—should return on Friday— and handed her a book containing a catechism, and told her when he returned he should ex pect her to be able to answer some of the questions. Mary says. "Yes," and laid away the book carefully. But Mary, liV e a good many other church members, thought bo more of her book until the very Friday the good min ister was to return. "What shall I do?" says she, "the minister it to behere to day, ar.d 1 haven't looked into the book he gave me ! How can 1 answer the questions?" "I can tell you," says Adam. "Give me a quarter and let mo go over to Smite's and get some good rum, ana you can answer his ques tions with a glass of toddy." Mary took the advice—gave Adam a quar ter and a jug, and off he started. After get ting his bottle filled, and on his way back, Adam concluded to lasts the rum. One tasie followed another, until be tumbled over a pile ofrocknand broke the jug and lost the rum.— But Adam managed to stagger horn*. Soon as he got into the house, Mary inquir ed anxiously for the bottle of rum. "Where is the bottle and rum, Ad«n>" Poor Adam managed to stammer out "that he stumbled over a pile of rocks, and broke the bottle and lost the rum." "But bare comes Minister. It won't do for the man of God to see Adam drunk?" so she for the want of abetter place to hide, sent him ua dar the bed. By the time he was fairly under, in ctti»e the minister. After sitting a few mo ments, be asks Mary if she thought she could aaswer the question, "how did Adam fall." Mary turned her head first one way and then another—finally she stammered out— "He fell over a pile of rockt!" It was now the minister's turn tolo >k blank; but he ventured another question— * Where dul be hide himself after the fall?" Mary looked t the minister, then at the bad but tiualiy she out with it— "Under the bed, fir! There, Adam, you may come out; he knowsjail about it! ' The good minister retired—not even waiting for his glass of todJy.—Spirit of the Timet. EP BKAYKKS'CELEBRATED LIVER PILLS— Prepared from the Matt obtained at tke Rockbridge (Va.)
