Mr John Bull—Dear Sir: For the last three yean
I been afflicted with Rheumatism of the|severest
(.-ii ire- r» i. I was at times in the greatest agony of pain;
I tried c verj* remedy I could procure for the disease,
i ! found iio permanent relief until I was induced to
ust your prep nation of Sarsaparilla, which has entire
ly r.ire.l me of Rheumatism, and greatly improved my
general health more than any medicine I everused. 1
have iieen free of pain for several months, and have
no (h:ubt the cure is permanent, and 1 recommend it
:.s*the best medicine in use for Rheumatism.

I im a graduate ol Transylvania Medical Universi
ty;! have practiced medicine in this wilderness coun
try about five V'-e.M. but owing to exposure to bitter
cold weather, i have been indisposed with Acute Rheu
matism about >in months. After having exhausted my
•kill i a the treatment of my case, and deriving no bene
fit, I was induced to give your Fluid Extract of Sar
a-par.iia a lair trial, and accordingly purchased a bottle
of your medicine from your agent, Mr. George P.
Brown, about two weeks ago. and I must confess that
one bottle has entirely cured me.
||!t is my opinion that your preparation of Sarsaparil
la is idedly superior to any other preparation now in
use. and I will take great pleasure in recommending it
to the afflicted as being a remedial agent, and I will ad
vise physicians to use it in their practice,
Respectfully yours, B. B. ALLEN, M. I).

"*he old bonnet.
A Story f.r Aat«*.
BY MISS C. W. BARBER.
It was a black chilly day in November. The
w.nd went watltng like a ltviag Ihm r
the naked trees, and dying away i n hollow
murmurs through ihe leaf-bestrewn valley,
But ir. the parlor of Mr. Eirdlong all was as
•heerful as May. A fire in the grate cast a
genial wannth through the richly furnished
room, and the light from the somber sky stole
in through heavy damask curtains, casting a
crimson shado over every thing—over the soft
richly plied carpet—the nicely polished ehairs,
sofas and tables, and eten staining to a deeper
glow the cheeks of two young girls, who sat
with some net work in their hands before the
fire.
They sat and gossiped about the dress, man
ners and habit.-" of the various individuals whom
Ihey knew. Tney were the daughters of a rich
merchant, and had just made their entre into
the world.
"I think,,'said Susie Birdlong, the elder of
the two, "that Jane Dixon, to whom we were
introduced at Mrs. Myers'yesterday, can't be
much. Did you notice her dress? Her glovea
fitted her hand well enough, but she has, I
dare say, worn them a doeen times before, and
her bonnet looked as though old Madame Noah
might have worn it into the Ark. She had but
little to say, 1 noticed, and I consider that proof
positive that she can't talk, for when people
can talk, they generally do. At any rate, 1
don't like the looks of her bonnet; and i mean
to cut her acquaintance, let who will visit her."
Her sister smiled an approving smile, and
then the two proceeded to diseect the charac
ter of others.
But let us turn to Miss Dixon, the young
lady who had drawn upon herself censure, by
daring to wear an antique article of dress.—
She sat, upon the same morning in which
we have introduced the Misses Birdlong to the
render's notice, in a parlor equally well fur
nished—equally cheerful, and in her hands,
strange to tell, was the very bonnet—the old
fashioned bonnet, which might have belonged
to Mrs. Noah. She was turning it around,
and contemplating the appearance of its faded
ribbons. Every now and theo, as a wilder
blast swept by, she however raised her head
with an anxious expression upon h«r face to
listen. Once she laid down the bonnet, nnd
went to the window to lookout.
"It is a bitter day," she said to herself,
mentally. "I wonder how that poor Irish
family, the McCarties, will get along 1 I think
that I must go over and see after them. L«l
me think! If I can manage to wear my old
bonnet another winter, I can afford to buy
wood for them, and by curtailing some other
expenses, I could send those two oldest child
ren to school. Once educated they could aid
in the education of the younger members of
the family. As it is, nil are growing up in
idleness and mischief. I think I must try to do
this. But that old bonnet does look shsbby.
Yet I can repair it, by retrimming it, until it
will look near, and why need I care if it does
not look fine ? Thoae who know and love me,
will not care what kind of a bonnet I weni —
those who do not know me, certainly need not
concern themselves about my dress. . I think
that I shall manage to wear it." So saying
she went back to the seat—took up the un
conscious object of the soliloquy, and after
re-trimming it, went out to look after the Mc-
Carties.
In the Irishman's hovel she was received
with clamorous demonstrations of joy. Her
luce became as radiant with good humor and
benevolence as an angel's. She bought th«
wood and entered the children's names at
school.
On her way home she met Susie Birdlong,
accompanied by several fashionable acquain
tances, not one of whom chose to recognize
her. Had she been fashionably dressed, the
result would have been different.
Was she a gainer or loser by wearing that
old bonnet ? Her own happy heart, as she
mounted the steps of her father's mansion, and
took it carefully off. whispered "a gainer."—
The angels, those bright intelligences, who,
bending from the Mount of God, keep watch
over the actions of men, and shout to each
oilier for joy when they see mortals "bearing
one another's bvrdtns" and fulfilling the
"law of love," shouted in one united chorus,
then, we fancy, "a gainer;" but Susie Bird-
Ion?, and several individuals belonging to her
highly arialoctatie circles, thought otherwise.

MR. WEBSTER'S OPINION.
"In the Southern States of this Union slave
ry exists by the laws of the States, and under
the guaranty of the Constitution of the United
States; and it has existed in them from a pe
riod long antecedent to the time when they
ceased to be British Colonies. In this state of
things it will happen that slaves will be often
on board coasting vessels, as hands, as servants
attending the families of their owners, or for
the purpose of being carried from port lo port.
" The maritime law is full of instances of the
application of the great and practical rule, that
that which is the clear result of necessity,
ought to draw after it do penalty and no ha
zard."
The case of Mr. and Mrs. Lemtnon was a
case of necessity, as alleged by them; and,
as if Co meet their case, Mr. Webster adds :
" Your Lordship observes that I hare spo
ken only of American Teasels driven into Bri
tish ports by the disasters of the seas, or car
ried in by unlawful force. I confine my re
murks to these cases, because they are th<
common cases. * * But, my Lord, th<
rule of law, and the comity and praetice of
nations, go much further than tlieM case* of
necessity, and allow even to a merchant vea
eel, coming into any open port of another
country voluntarily, for the purpose of lawful
trade, to bring with her, and keep over.her, to
• very considerable extent, the jurisdiction and
auihority of the lawa of her own country, ex
cluding, to thia extent, by consequence, the
jurisdiction of the local law."
Mr. W. confine* himself to cases of vessels
driven into British ports by the disasters of th»
seas, or carried in by anlawful force, because
they are the common case?, —implying thai
there were other cages where the necessity
might not be so great —perhaps tha mere ne
cessity of convenience.
Mr. VV.. says again:
" Your Lordship will please to.bear in mind,
that the proposition which I atn endeavoring
to support is, that by the comity of the lair
of nations, and the practice of modern times,
merchant vessels entering open porta of otbar
nations, tor the purpose of trade, are presumed
to be allowed to bring with them, and to retaia
for their protection and government, the juria*
diction and laws of their country. All this I
repeat, is presumed to be allowed ; because
the port* are open, because trade is invited,
and because, under the circumstances sueh
permission or allowance is according to gene
ral usage."
If such be the law of nations, governing the
relations between governments wholly septr
rate and distinct, much more," it is declared*
are they called for by the comity wbieh should
characterise these United States T In conclu-
Webster says:
"If therefore, vessel* of the United States,
pursuing lawful voyages, from pott to port,
alotig their own shore, are driven by stress of
weather, or carried by unlawful force into Ea-
S liiih ports, the government of the United
tat<>B cannot consent that the local authoritiee
in those ports shall take advantage oi such
misfortunes, and enter them, for the purpose of
interfering with the condition of persons or
things on board as established by their ow*
laws."—A'. Y. Exj re '*•
