At this ttage t saw your adver tisement In a New York paper. My faith was very weak, bnt a* a last raaort I ?eut for a box. It Rave eo much relief that a atcoiMl ami t ulrd were n*ed, and I uow ltave the Rreat pleasure of informing you that my daughter's health t? com pletely restored . her eallow complexion la replaced by ths rosy clow o> hui'th ; her gloomy melancholy, oy that cheer ful buoyancy of spirits, which la usual in girls of her age; and If ths pills had o?t trn time* as much.

B.?The ingredients of these pills arc perfect ly uaRMLtss in their medicin I operation on the Miost delicate female con titutions, yet as prepared and smnbi-ied by Dr. Duponco, their specific action is sucfi tfi.it married ladies should use them with proper precaution. Indeed, their use is not at all indicated during pregnancy. For the same reason, as every p!i siciati knows, medicines which act in this way j.iethe very best that can be used for re stoiini the natural, healthy tone and functions of the system when so much impaired and deranged as to result in biirrennes*.

WONDERFUL cure after six year's suffering of one of the most highly respectable citizens of Maryland. Prejudice and skepticism can't stand before the many cures made by Hampton's Vegetable Tinc ture. Kimball's Grove, Montgomery Co., Md ,) December 2,1854. J Messrs. Matimer 4' Mowbray: Gentlemen?In 18441 had what ir.y doctore called a violent and combined attack of Chrome Rheuma tism and Gout, from which I was confined to my bed for three months. I had the very best physi cians, who tried other various remedies, none of which gave me any permanent relief. Not having ease trom pain day or night, I became much ? iuaci alej ; my whole system a mass of disease, literally speaking, f rom the crown of my he~d to the sole of my feet. I had to hobble about?most of the time confined to the house; at times so helpless that I had to be assisted to my bed. I was also afflicted with a dreadful cough, great shortness of breath, sore throat, palpitation of the heart, ami pain in my side so hud I coull not lay on it. My anpetiie en tirely failed me. I gave up alt hopes ot fx-ing restored to health attain. I continued thus to sutler ou from 1844 to 1856, a period of six years. At this tune my daughter saw at her grandmother's a pamphlet, with numerous certificates of cure* made by Dr. Hamp ton's Vegetable Tincture. I knew some of those who certified to cures per formed on themselves and friends. I was resolved to give it a trial. I informed my doctor of it. He objected ; but my sufferings were sogreatih.il 1 pro cured one bottle, slid, before I had taken the whole of it, I felt much relief, which encouraged me to persevere. After taking the second bottle I was better than for the past six years, my appetite re lumed?cou^ti, pain ui the side, shortness of breath nearly nil gone. 1 continued using this won derful medu ine until I had taken seven bottles, ac cording to the directions; and I am happy to say Hamptou's Tincture, and that alone restored me to perfect bc&lili, which has continued up to this time ? a peliod of three years. 1 am in '.he 65th year of my age. I weighed yesterday 238 lbs., and I never felt better in my life. One of my neighbors was al so affected, like myself, with Rheuiiiausm, &.c. lie h.us also been restored by the Tiuclure. I heard of other ca?e?; but I am satisfied1 this Tiuclure, it tried, will speak for its*lf. My only object in de scribing to you my sufferings and the way I obtained relief, is to in. uce the atfiict-d to uy this Tincture, w hich has, under the blessuigs of God done ao much for ine.

L WCMA!<?? WE0XG3 AT1X0ED BY HEH OWN H&HD8 Our California exchanges by the last arrival bring u* seme startling corainis-1 sions of cringe. From a San Francisco I paper of December 19, we learn that a tragical atfair took place on the evening I of Monday, December 18, at the corner Merchant and Kearney streets, lhe particulars from a well authenti-1 cated source are as follows : Henry Kerrison, a member of the po-| lice force, had formed an acquaintance I with Elizabeth Sullivan, the proprietress} of a cigar store on Clay street, near the I Sazerac House. Kerrison being underl an engagement to be married to a young I woman residing in this city, has been en-1 deavoring for some time past to rid him-1 self of Elizabeth Sullivan's acquaintance. I Prompted, as it is supposed, by the de-l mon of jealousy, she yesterday came up I to Kerrison, who was standing on the I corner of Merchant and Kearney streets, I and, with no other warning or salutation 1 than merely exclaiming, "Harry," she plunged a bowie knife into his breast,! iust above the region of the heart, the ;nife glancing from the rib passed be tween, and entered the left lobe of the I lung, inflicting a wound about one inch I and a half in depth in the lung, and from I the outside about three inchcs. { Kerrison was conducted to the room of | Captain McDonald, and surgical aid in-1 stantly obtained; but the uature of the I wound almost preclude the possibility of I recovery. Kerrison is well kuown as having been an cflicient member of thel police. Elizabeth Sullivan was formerly I an actress at the People's Theatre undu the assumed name of Howard. Assistant Captain Morton subsequent-1 ly visited her cell, and obtained a letter I addressed to Mr. Kerrison, of which the I following is a copy : Hakry?For the last time, Uarry Ker-1 rison, I now write to you. You have I embittered my whole life; you have given | me no choice but a life of prostitution:! and, Harry, God will not let me l>e un-1 avenged. You will say, to the latest I moment of your existence, when I first I saw you, if any one had even hinted to I me, that 1 would fall so low as to asso-1 ciate with you, 1 would have considered I it an insult. Perhaps you remember 1 when I would scarcely deign to notice I you when you came where I was; and! then I was happy, and, 1 may add, inno-1 cent. See now, through your cursed,! cursed wiles, to what I am brought. 1 Why arc such men as you allowed tol live ? You're a curse to the world. Now. I mark my words?I am about entering I into a life to which I would gladly prefer I death, and God knows my heart?knows! how hard I have struggled against it. I By your dastardly treatment, 1 have been I driven to it. Now, Harry, to tell you I that I have loved you?that I would have laid down my life for you?that! if sickness had prostrated you upon I your bed, I would have worked for! and tended you as tenderly as the fond-1 eat mother would her child?that if crime or reproach hail been yours, I would have clung to you and have loved you I through all?that nothing on earth would I ] have damped my love for you, so closely I had 1 entwined you rourd my heart. J This, Harry, has been my love fjr you? 11 this, Harry, has been the heart you have!1 thrown from you. Your own heart will I - best tell you why. If from the caprice |1 of a moment, or from a passing fancy of your tickle nature, it matters all the same. The die is cast. If now you were about to offer in the right of man to woo me as your wife?if you were to lay a fortune at my feet, I would refuse it all, for a stronger passion has laid hold of me?and a sweeter one. Have pa tience, Harry, and read. When 1 left home my mother gave me a Bible. Since night. Do not treat this as the fancy of I a moment. I am very calm?the cool calm of hate, deadly hate?and I knelt on my knee on the cold earth, with no other wit ness but the stars above me?and, Ilarry Kerrison, I took an awful oath on that holy book?an oath which would make your blood run cold to hear. 'Tis you have known my love?now you shall feel my hate. Mouths may elapse, but my revenge will overtake you. No sudden, I open act of violence, for my late fury has settled down into deep, calm revenge. If I meet you openly, I will meet you with I a smile?I will meet you proudly. If I you leave the city, I will leave too. I will have those watching that you little dream of. You need not if you can avoid coming near me?it is all the same. Now, if you will show this letter! around to your friends! My own wri-| ting?this letter?will, no doubt, one! day be shown against me. I can bear it I all, and more, when I am revenged ; 1 would willingly do for it; I will devote J my life to the accomplishment of it. Did you ever think, Harry Kerrison, that it would ever come to this ? Did you ever think that she who was loving and easy to forgive you, had such feelings within her ? An old saying?the strongest love sometimes turns to the dreadiest hate. Yes, my dear love, this atfair, with the' romance, as you have styled it, will have quite a romantic termination?a subject for a novel writer?ending in a tragedy of death arfd a scaffold ? Well, I can think of no more for your amusement in this letter?all, all came from the heart. Now, go on, Harry; go, with the deep, deep curses of a broken, blighted heart! Go T for you are doomed; for, so sure as the sun rises and sets, so sure will my words come to pass." She was removed to the county jail. Since her arrest she has refused all food or nourishment, and has declared her in tention to starve for the purpose of haunt ing her viotim hereaf ter. Kerrison was still living at the time of the steamer's departure, and his wound was less serious than at first supposed. never looked at it till last THE WEEKLY 8TAK.

A good story has bten told of a lisping officer in the I nited States army, having been victimized by & brother officer, (who was noted for his cool deliberation and strong nerve,) and his getting square with him in the following man? ner. The cool joker, a captain, wn always quizzing the lisping officer, wh > was a lieutenant, for his nervou<ness. 44 Why," said he one day in the pres. cnce of his company, 44 nervousness is aH nonsense! I tell you, lieutenant, n i brave man will be nervous/' 44 Well," inquired the lisping friend, 44 how would you do, thpose a thell with an inch futhee thould drop itthelf in a walled angle in which you had taken thelter from a company of tLarpihootein, and where it wath thertaiu that if you put your nothc you'd get it finely pep pered?" 44 now, said the captain, winking at the circle; 44 Why, take it cool, anil spit on the fuse " The party broke up and all retired for the night except the patrol. The next morning a number of soldiers were as scmbltd and talking in clusters, when along came the lisping lieutenant; lazi* ly opening his eyes, he remarked? 441 want to try an exthperiment ihith morning, and thee how exthe.dingly cool you can be." Saying which he walked deliberately to the fire burning on the hearth, an.I placed in its hotest centre a powder canister, and instantly retreated. Then was but one mode of egress from tbo quarters, and that was upon the parad-t ground, the road being built up for de fence ; the occupant took one glance at the canister, comprehended his situation, and in a moment daslad at the door, but it was listened on tha outside. 44 Charley, let meout if you love me!'' shouted the captain. 44 Thpit on the canither!" shouted be in return. Not a moment was to l?e lost ; he had at tirst snatched up a blanket (o covei' his egress, but now dropping it, he raise l the window, aud oat he bounded, sani culotte, sans everything but a very shoi i undergarment; and thus, with hair upon end, he dashed uj>on a full parade ground. The shout which hailed hint brough out the whole tarracks to see what was the matter, and the dignified captain pulle l a tall sergeant in front of him to hide himself. 44 Why did'nt you thpit on it, ' in quired the lieutenant. 44 Because there were no sharp shoot* ers in front to stop retreat," answered the captain. 44 All I have got to thay, then, ith, ' said the lieutenant, 44 that you might thafely done it, for I thware tliue watlin t a thingle grain of powder in it!" The captain has never spoken against nervousness since. Kissing amoxg thb Fkkkcii.?A sprightly amusing American correspon dent in Paris thus describes the rage of kissing in "La Belle France:" 44The almost univeral custom of kissin,; n Paris seems at first very singular to u stranger coming from a country when -he proprieties of life rarely permit you :o take a lady's hand?much less to sa ute her. In France, to kiss a lady witli ivhom you are not at all intimate, on neeting her is very common, e^pfcialiy s this the case if she be a married lady. S'ot only the members of the family, but ill the guests, expect invariably to salute he lady of the house on ooming down in :he morning. But though the modest. \merican may, perhaps escape the cere nony on ordinary occasions, yet on New i\ar s morning it is imperative. On that norning I came down to my coffee about ) o'clock. I sat down quietly, bidding Madame 4bon jour,' as on ordinary occa sion. But I was not to get off so easily, [n a few moments she was at my elbow vith 'Mons. B , I am very angry witli fou.' I expressed, of course, a regret aud gnorance of having given any reason. 44Ah!'" said she, 4*you know very wall .he reason. It is because you did not eui - jr&ce me when you came down this mor ng." Madame was a lady of perhaps twenty - ?ight, with jet black, glossy hair, larg^ ustrous black eyes, and a clear, fair coin >lexion. She was very beautiful; had ihe been plain I should have felt lej?s ?.ui sarrassed. ?he waited as though expect ng me to atone for my neglect; but how ould I before the table ? 1 sat at all this irne trembling in my seat. At length iiadame said 4Mons. B, cmbrosez mui ' "he worst had come. I arose trembling, >ut my white bloodless lips, all greasy nth butter and wet with oofl'.-e (for in uy embarrassment I had dropped my tapkin) to those of Madame. This waa uy first French ki*a."
