Aussi-Toutes les Etoffes et Confections pour habitations. P. A. HEBRARD, SNo. 118 Rue do Canal, entra Royale et Bourbon, dans les Batisses Touro, Nouvelle Orlédns. \n\n ramt Ter a .. A correspondent of the Beloit (Wis.) Journal gives the follofring humorous sketch of this well known personage, Which we find in Arthur's Home Ga zette :. Your paper of the 7th of July con tai ns a paragraph, cut from the New York Tribune, noticing the marriage of Grant Thorburn, the "Laurie Todd" of other days. It has occurredto me that yon and your readers might like an in troduction to the old man and his per sonal characteristics. One would think, on reading his let ters, that he was of the patriarchal style, with erect figure, long white hair and beard, and slow and dignified mien. His reminiscences of the past run so far back into the early life of the city and country of his adoption, that we unconsciously silver his fancied ap pearance with the frosted accompani ments of age. But who ever, from a letter, a volume, or a discourse, formed a correct impression of an author ? A few weeks since I happened into the business office of a book-publishing friend in New York city. He was busy in conversation with the funniest little old man I ever looked at. His diminu tive figure was hid, and, as it were, ex tinguished under a long, loose, im s~.nse gray overcoat, the, skirts of which swept his ancles. His little bul let head was pushed up into a broad brimmed, low-crowned gray hat. His neck, which seemed as large as his waist, was enveloped in the snowiest of cravats, and his square-toed shoes, with their shining buckles, were pol ished to the highest degree, and alto gether as restless as a popple leaf. Perceiving that I had come on business, the old gentleman turned to give me the opportunity of addressing my friend, who, in his turn, perceiving that I was unacquainted with the ancient appari tion before me, introduced me, by say. ing, "Don't you know Grant Thor burn t'' " Not" " Well, this is Laurie himself, or rather Laurie beside himself. If he shows any aberration of mind, pray don't notice it, for the old boy is just go ing to marry a young girl." " And why shouldn't 11t" broke in Mrs Thorburn; " I am eighty-one years old, to be sore, but look here "-and putting one hand on the counter orlong table, he sprang over to its other side as nimbly as a boy. "There! if you can do that, you are fit to marry any body. I can leap a five-barred fence as well bs I ever could; and see there too "-and from under the skirts of his overcoat, he put out a leg, the symme try of which was well shown by the closely-fitting tights and knee-breeches which enveloped it--" There's as hand some a leg as any of you can brag of." We assented, and took the opportuni ty of saying that I was extremely gratified to have met him, for I had heard of him, and been familiar with his writings all my days. He grasped my hands, and for the first time looked me in the face. "s r," said he, "I feel complimented. I have written to gratify old and young, and I think I have been somewhat suc cessful. You are young yet, and you have a chance of doing a great deal of good, if you only try; and I have this adviee to give yon: if you are a lay man, don't betray your country; if you are a clergyman, preach extempore setrons.n On those subjects, as on the text, the old man rattled on for some minutes, giving me full opportunity for seeing that he had short gray hair, large, bright, hazel eyes, and a restless, con stant play of his features. He was con stantly pulling off his hat and re placing it, and making most extraordi nary bows at his emphatic words, and eatehibg at my coat button holes with one hand, and with the other hand, and with both hands, and seemingly forget ting.where he was, or who was about him, he flashed along in his discourse asif he and I were the only persons in the universe, and that our lives de pended on my conviction of the truth of his rpolsels. All of a sudden he stopped, and de. manded irst my name, business, resi dence, and persuasion; and second, which of his writings I liked best. SEasily satisfying his first question, I hesitated on the second; but finally suggested his account of his visit to Juony Lind. The old than fairly shook like an earthquake with laughter. I had ex cited agreeable recollections, it seemed, and he eSooyed.the reminder. So he laughed antihe mhad ar ail oaugh in cone, altheugh we Akne~e not what we were laugbing at I was beginning to feel "foolish," when he suddenly ceased roaring, and said, semi-confiden. tly---" Sir, she did kiss auld -Laurie. , tg heret and he put hits fget .And sok er e ont on in the same styl.i abket Jeany Lind for a moment, -bat .onsemciously came back to the betray, at of the country, and extempore s.ris so.s, which were his hobieT for tba. day.

Certfcate of Capt. St. Claer Thomatoruo of the steamer Magnolia. Having painted the hurricane deck of the passenger steamer "Magnolia," under my com mand, with the Bridgewater Paint, I cheerfully recommend it for its impervious qualities, and have no hesitation in pronouncing it superior, in my judgment to any mineral paint before the public, and believe it to be a certain protection against the effects of sparks and cinders. I has also proved entirely waterproof on my decks after three months use. ST. C. TwHoxASSOn. New Orleans, Dec. 2. 1851 Certificate of Capt. William Brown, of t.e Towboat Porpoise. I have used the Bridgewater Paint, for which Messrs. G. C. Robert & Co., are agents, on the hurricane deck of the towboat "Porpoise." The paint has been on about three months, and sparks and cinders constantly falling upon it has hiad no effect whatever. In about four weeks it became a perfect slate, and I am satisfied of its possessing all the qualities necessary to inr- "e it a certain protection against the effects of s, arks and cinders. I confidently recommend the Bridgewater paint for the purpose set forth in the Agent's circular. Ws. BRowN. New Orleans, Feb. 4, 1852. Cetrtieate of the Managers and Agents of Louisana Dry Dock- Company. Having had the Louisiana Dry Dock painted with the Bridgewater Paint, and its merits thoroughly tested, we fully concur in opinion with Capt. Thomasson. of the Magnolia, and Capt. Brown of the Porpoise. We cheerfully recommend said paint as a superior article. HUGHES, VALLETT & THOMAS, L. D. D. J. P. WHITNEY & Co., Agents. New Orleans, Feb. 4, 1852. Certsficate of Joseph Besson, Pointer. I have used the Bridgewater Paint for the past five months on brick and plastered buildings, and on tin, shingle and canvass roofs, and in every instance it has given the fullest satisfac. tion. From tests and experiments made under my immediate direction, I can testify to its being proof against effects of sparks and cinders, andia protection against leaks. I consider it fareupe rior to any mineral paint I have ever seen, and invaluable for all out-door purposes-possessing qualities that particularly recommend it for use in a southern climate. JOSEPH BENSON. New Orleans, Feb. 6, 1852. Certificate of John F. Miller, of Attalapa,. In July last I was induced to apply the Bridge water mineral Paint to my Sugar-House, and in every respect it has exceeded my expectations, and the representations made by the Agents, Messrs. G. C. Robert & Co. I cheerfully add my testimony to the numerous ones embraced in the Agent's circular, and recommend the same to planters and others, as the best fire and water protector I have ever known. Where I have applied it, it has been exposed to the sun since last July, and has neither blistered nor cracked, and has formed a solid metalic surface, which has proved entirely impervious. Joan F. MILLER. New Iberia, Attakapas, March 16, 1852. Underwriters' Ceritfcate.

HOOFLAND'S CELEBRATED GERMAN BITTERS, PREPARED BY DR. C. M. JACKSON, No. 120 Arch Street, Philadelphia. Their power over the abovediseases is not ex celled, if equalled, by any other preparation in the United States, as the cures attest, in many cases after skilful physicians had failed. These Bitters are worthy the attention of in valids. Possessing great virtues in the rectifica tion of diseases of the Liver and lesser glands, exercising the most searching powers in weak ness and affections of the digestive organs, they are, withal, safe, certain and pleasant. Read and be Convinced ! The Philadelphia Saturday Gazette says of Dr. Hoofland's German Bitters: "It is seldom that we recommend what are termed Patent Medicines to the confidence and patronage of our readers, and therefore when we recommend Dr. Hofland's German Bitters, we l wish it to be distinctly understood that we are not speaking of the nostrums of the day, that are noised about for a brief period and then for gotten, after they have done their guilty race of mischief, but of a medicine long established, universally prized, and which has met the hearty approval of the faculty itself." Scott's Weekly, of the 25th August, says: "Dr. Hoofland's German Bitters, manufac tured by Dr. Jackson, are now recommended by some of the most prominent members of the faculty as an article of much efficacy in cases of female weakness. Persons of debilitated con stitutions will find these Bitters advantageous to their health, as we know from experience the salutary effect they have upon weak systems." MORE EVIDENCE. J. G. Moore, Esq., of the Daily news, in his issue of October 31st, says: " Dr. Hoofland's German Bitters.-We are trying this renowned medicine for a stubborn disease of the bowels, and can with truth testify to its efficacy. We have taken the contents of two bottles, and we have derived more benefit from the experiment than we derived previously from years of al|ppathj. treatment at the hands of our first physeFians Hon. C. D. Hineline, Mayor of the city of Camden, N. J., says: "Hoofland's German Bitters.-We have seen many flattering notices of this medicine, and the source from which they came induced us to make inquiry respecting its merits. From inquiry we were persuaded to use it, and must say we found it speciic in its action upon dis eases of the liver and digestive organs, and the powerful influence it exerts upon nervous pros tration, is really surprising. It calms and strengthens the nerves, bringing them into a state of repose, making sleep refreshing. If this medicine was more generally used, we are satisfied there would be less sickness, as from the stomach, liver and nervous system, the great majority of real and imaginary diseases emanate. Have them in a healthy condition and you can bid defiance to epidemics generally. This extra ordinary medicine we would advise our friends who are at all indisposed, to give a trial-it will recommend itself. It should, in fact, be in every family. No other medicine can produce such evidences of merit."

Others cure sometimes, but at all times and in all diseases of the lungs and throat where medicine can give relief, this will do it. It is pleasant to take, and perfectly safe in accor dance with the directions. We do not advertise for the information of those who have tried it, but those who have not. Families that have known its value will not be without it, and by its timely use they are secure from the dangerous conse quences of Coughs and Colds, which, neglected, ripen into fatal consumption. The Diploma of the Massachusetts Institute was awarded to this preparation by the Board or Judges in September, 1847; also, the Medals of the three great Institutes of Art, in this country; also, the Diploma of the Ohio Institute at Cin cinati, has been given to the Cherry Pectoral, by their Government in consideration of its ex traordinary excellence and usefulness in curing affeotions of the Lungs and Throat.

WASHINTON, Pa., April 12, 1848 Dear Sir-Feeling that I have been spared from a premature grave through your instru mentality by the power of God, I will take the liberty to express to you my gratitude. A Cough and the alarming symptoms of Con sumption had reduced me too low to leave me anything like hope, when my physician brought me a bottle of your ".Pectoral." It seemed to afford immediate relief, and now in a few weeks time has restored me to sound health. If it will do for others what it has for me, you are certainly one of the benefactors of mankind. Sincerely wishing you every blessing, I am Very respectfully yours. JOHN J. CLARK, Rector of St. Peter's Church.

BROWN'S Essence of Jamaica Ginger, Prepared and Sold at FRED'K BROWNS' Drug and Chemical Store, N. F. corner f Chestnut and Fiftka Streets, Philadelphia. THIS Essence is warranted to possess, in a T concentrated form, all the valuable proper ties of Jamaica Ginger, and will be found on trial an excellent family medicine. It is particu larly recommended as a tonic to persons recover ing from fever or other diseases, a few drops im parting to the stomach a glow and vigor equal to a wine-glassful of brandy or other stimulant, without any of the debilitating effects which are sure to follow the use of liquor of any kind, and it is therefore especially serviceable to children and females. To the aged it will prove a great comfort; to the dyspeptic, and to those who are predisposed to gout or rheumatic affections, it gives great relief; and to the inebriate who de sires to reform, but whose stomach is constantly craving the noxious liquor, it is invaluable, giving tone to the digestive organs and strength to re sist temptation, and is consequently a great agent in the cause of temperance. Dose.-For a grown person, one tea-spoonful; for a child ten or twelve years old, half a tea spoonful; and for a child from two to five years old, from fifteen to twenty drops-to be given in sugar and water. 4 OQ For sale in Franklin by DR.C.

Fifty Dollars Reward I RAN AWAY from my Plantation, on Red River, 18 miles above Alexandria, in the State of Louisiana. last spring a year ago, a mulatto or griff colored negru man, about 33 years old, about .5 feet 8 inches high, and weighs about 143i or 150 pounds. He talks slowly and walks in the samneway, is quite a good-looking fellow, and has fine sound teeth. His name is AUSTIN, but I hear that he has changed it, and says he belongs to some doctor at Natchitoches. I have reason to believe he is cutting wood or working for some trifling person near the mouth of Black River, as he arrived there in company with another negro, in the flat they carried away from my ferry. If lie went oiff on any steamboat that is not destroyed, and can be held responsible for an ac tion of damages, I wmil give $2,000 for proof to couvictron in open court at Alexandria against any captain, master or commander so allowing or aiding him to make his escape on their boat from my service. I will give the above reward of $50 for said boy, if delivered in any slave State jail, so that I can get him. J. D. ALLEN. I ly Cotile Post Office, Rapides, La. $25 Reward.
