I had the very best ph\si jus, who tried other various remedies, none of | u hich gave me auy permanent relief. Not having eve from pain day or night, i became much ? maci aied ; my whole system a m;us of disease, li ? rally -peaking, from the crown of my he ?d to the sole of j iny feet. I had to hobble about?most u the tune confined to the houne; at times no helpless that I had to be as?i*terf to my bed- I was also ntflicied a dreadful cough, great shortneso of lireath, sore throat, palpit uion of the heart, and pain in iny side so hud I coul not lay on it. My appetite en tirely failed me. I jvreup all hopes of beiug restored to health a/ain. i continued thus tosatfer on trom 1844 I85n, i of six yeara. At this time my dtuglitcr saw at her grandmotber'sa pamphlet, with numerous certiftcates of cure* made by Dr. Hnmp ton's Vefeubie Tincture. I knew some of those wiio eerulied to cures per formed on themselves and friends. I w as resolved o give it a trial.. I informed my docutr of it. He objected; bnt my suffering* wer* so great hat I pro ired one bottle, and. be:ore 1 had fskeu the whole of it, 1 felt nioeh reliet, which eueourVted ine to persevere. After URiug tlie second bottle I was better than for the past six years, my appstite re turned?cou?h, pain in the side, shortness nf breath 4tC j nearly all gone. I continued usinc this won dertul medicine until I had taken seven bottles, ac cording ui tbe directions; and I am happy to say Hampton'* Tincture, and that alone restored ine to perfect health, which has continued np to this tims ?a period of inree years. I am in the 65th year of my aft. 1 weighed yest? rday 238 lbs., ami I never felt better in iny life.

These few, simple words, how they bring back our teacher, in all the majes ty of his little school-house ?our joyous young companions? But I must not allow so wide a field to memory. If I begin to wander there, stones will rise at every step, liJ^e the small starry flowers on the green plains of Spring. Ihe Colonel shall be the single portrait j [ will sketch to-day. lie was not al ways 'the Colonel, indeed he never' was, except in these latter days, for at' school we called him "Jack Jones," and his military title, now, nobody knows whence it came, nor anything more about it than that it is universally given him, to the exclusion of every other name whatsoever. Jack was a poor boy, but a bright one. Nevertheless, our teacher used frequent ly to say that 4'Jack would never die of hard study." Nor did he seem at all in danger of such a death, for his cheeks were round and rosy, his eyes quick and ' piercing; the whole outward boy was in ' excellent condition of most un-student like heaith, and the inner bov a perpet ual bontire of fun. Yet who could learn a lesson sooner than Jack Jones ? -if he chose. lie didn t often choose, however; and if the rod leaped out to enforce duty] as sometimes happened?not a correct re citation from Jack lor a week after ! lie was a wonderful Jack for stubbornness. Persuasion would help him along, but persuasion was a sorry truant In those days, and hardly ever found at school. Still, Jack being a good hearted, merry lad, and a general favorite among his mates, they assisted his recitations by whispers at the important moment, and turther mded by careful readings from in genious inscriptions on his finger-nails, he managed pretty well, after all. In one part of school duty he was par ticularly expert, namely, in obedience to the order: "Lay by your books and slates !" And though, as we have con fessed, he was not the first boy in school, he certainly was the first boy out of it, with a bound and a shout, too, that, by their exuberance, endangered his being brought back, to learn, in solitary con finement, that sublime lesson : "moder ation in pleasure!" During 44 play time," Jack frequently entertained himself, and the little ad-i miring crowd, by performing on the flute, which he did daintily, though ignorant of a signal note of music. Everybody said he was a genius ; and Jack believed everybody, and was proud of it. There] was his ambition: what were books to I Jack Jones ! That flute led him 44 on to fortune"? | and misfortune. Trilling circumstances often change the current of human events, just as a stone, near the source of a river, may divert the course of all the mighty wa ters. Jack left school. He had finished his I 44 book learning,"for his father's humble means could assist him no longer?and, in truth, the boy's inclination precisely agreed with the poverty of the parent. Jack was sixteen years of age. Now he went to work in earnest?not at the dull task assigned him in the shop, but to perioct his education?on the flute. Many were the stolen hours devoted to this darling object. One day he was playing finely in an obscure alley ?the happiest boy in town surrounded by juvenile male and female blacks, whose big, rolling eyes expressed delightftil appreciation W hkn?(Tnis must begin a sentence, for here the wheel oi Fortune 44 turns up Jack")?a dignified gentleman, passing along the neighboring pavement, stop ped. Stopped a long time, and listened with evident pleasure. Even the discord of politics may not, in some souls, fiighten away the delicate spirits of harmony which have oncsj found there congenial hemes. Thus the I Honorable listener still owned the charms J oi music. Thus, he did not forget to, spsak of the flute-boy, that da/, at dia >? 4 ?MMggaiMa ner. Ilia Honorable lady, herself an ad mirable musician, was deeply interested in the description: ?4 We must have him here!" And he came, and those rich parlors seemed more rich, penradod by the magic melody of that poor boy's flute. 44 A friend in the Court," says vhaks peare, "is better than mpenny in the purse.? Jack Jones had both. A new name was soon heard at roll oall among the romantic highlands of the Hudson. On Saturday afternoons, a new flute whispered, surpassing all the old ones, from a window of the Cadets' bai racks. Nor was there a more soldier like youth at West Point than Jones. The recitation-rooms, too, gave a good report of him. A glorious prize would reward his toil! A proud ambition awoke in his soul! On ! on! All loved him. All praised him. All predicted a triumphant future! Curses on the wine cup? And thou also, Music, even thou?how often dost thou ruin those who lov> thee, those whose si'nple, generous spirits thou ren derest so susceptible to the syren? Praise! Ah, how iew can resist the siren, when, smiling rapturously, she offers the rosy wine! The scene changes. 44 The Colonel" is again in his native town?in lowest poverty, disgrace, and continual drunk enness. He has taken possession of a ruinous hut, in the suburbs. A little ragged boy is with him. 44 Charley" calls the Colonel father. Alaa, poor child of such a father! A woman is there, too?a picture more sad than the man?a drunken woman?a cruel moth er?a mother, but not a wife. The Colonel occasionally condescends to drive a cart, when pressed for money: at other times he will ,4 get a drink," now almost his only want, by a tune on the old flute?a dull, stammering in strument at present?,4 the soul of music tied." _ He wanders about the field surround ing his house?wanders all night, even in the most stormy weather, a bottle in one hand, a gun in the other, drinking from the bottle and firing the gun, alter nately ; now sings a profane ?>ng, now a devout hymn ; now curses, no* prays; or calls his dog?only to beat him back: or calls 44 Char-ley," (prolonging the last syllable,) only to send for more whisky. There is an echo in the neighborhood. The Colonel, in his nightly wanderings, is often answered by it. He calls : 44 Char-ley!" Echo repeats: 44 Char ley!" The Colonel becomes furious. 44 You ungrateful scoundrel! Is that the way you mock your father, sir?" 44 Father, sir?" Then will he swear for an hour, and threaten the child's life, but finally de cides to 44 make it up" again: 4i Char-ley!" he cries. But still the heartless echo mocks him! Alas, alas, such a life is all a mock A?* 11 ' REV. Z\C3AKIAH GRFEHE The nincty-tifth birthday of this ven erable revolutionary soldier and patriot was celebrated at the house of his grand daughter, Mrs. J. F. Vanderhoof, at As toria, on the 11th instant. Father Greene was in the best of health and spirits, and a happy participant in the observances that were arranged to com memorate his worth and usefulness. The following biief sketch of his career was penned by his own still vigorous hand : Astoria, Jan. 16, 1855. 1 was licensed to preach the Gospel on the 1st of January, 1785. I was or dained and installed pastor of 4th church in Southold, (called Cutchougue) Suffolk County, L. I., on the 2?ih of June, 1787. I was dismissed on the 9th of September, 1797, and wa? installed pas tor of the first Presbyteaian church in Brookhaven, called Setauket, same coun ty, on the 27th day of the same month. 1 was born on the 11th of January, 1760, in the town of Stafford, Hartford county, Connecticut, (but now Tolland County.) I joined the revolutionary army with an older brother, in the month of January, 1776, at Roxbury. I aided in building the fort on Dorchester Neck by which the British army, commanded by Tom Gage, was driven out of Boston. 1 marched with the armv to New York ; soon after, our army left New York?in August. I was in the battle of Throg's Point, where they landed above Kings bridge. Soon after this, I was in the battle of White Plains Is both of these battles, the two armies were separated by the darkness of the evenings.. On the 7th of December, 1<77,1 was in the battle of White Marsh, 15 miles above Philadelphia, where the British were robbing the inhabitants, assisted by the mean aud infamous torics. In this battle I was severely wounded, my bro ther was also wounded, but not so badly and injuriously as myself. He was re markably preserved. He had cleveD musket-ball holes through his outside garments. After this, he waa in the bat tle of Monmouth, and at the storming of Stoney Point. He served five years, and myself three years. The King of Zion gave us our freedom. May our nation1 always give the praise and glory to His holy name. I am your brother in the Gospel of the divine and lovely Jesus. Zacbariah Grksxe.
