Mot tuner Mowbray: Gcntlemeu?In 1844 I bad what icy doctors called a violent and combined attack of Cbrouic Rheuma OmudGout, irom which I was confined to mv bed for three inontiu. I had the very be?t\bvsi -1^ Wh? tmid oUier vanoua remedies, none of which gave me any permanent relief. Not havinj? ea*e trom piun day or night, I became much emaci ^ho,e."Fat??n a mass of disease, literally ^fie?f' ^?,WK? * ?y h*ttd 10 lhe ??le '* my leet. j had to bobble about?most of the ante confined to lhe house; at times^Th^e" tha?I 10 ml bt;<1- 1 was also affllc-. d with a dreadful cough, great shortness of breath, sore throat, pal piuiion of ihe heart, and pain in my ?de so bad I could not lay on it. My appetite en tirely Ailed me. I gave up all hopea of being resuwed to health again. I continued thus to suffer on from 1844 to 1850, a penod of six years. At this time my d-(lighter saw at her grandmother's a pamphlet, with nnmerous certificates of cures made by Dr. Hamp ton's Vegetable Tincture.

I knew some of those who certified to cures per formed on iliciBHcivei And friends. I whs resolved to give it a trial. I in/brined my doctor of it. He objected ; but ay sufferings were so great that I pro cured >ne bottle, and, before I had taken the whole ol it, I felt much relictyrwnk'h encouraged mo lo Crsevere. After taking ihe second bottle 1 was iter than for the past six years, ray appetite re turned?cough, pain in the side, shortness of breath nearly all gone. I continued using this won derful medicine until I had taken seven bottles, ac cording to ihe directions; and I am happy to say Hampton's Tincture, and that alone restored me lo perteel health, which has continued up to this time a period of three years. I am in lbe 65th year of my age. I weighed yesterday 238 lbs., and I never fclt better in my life. One of my neighbors was al so affected, like myself, with Rheumatism, he. He has also been restored by the Tincture. I heard of other cases; but I am satisfied this Tincture, if ined, will speak lor itself. My only object in de scribing lo you nry sufferings and the way I obtained relief^ is to in.luce the atflict- d to try this Tincture, which has, under the blc.*$nur8 of God done so much fnr vtul fori Yours, respecttuJIv, HENRY GAJTHBR.

She marritd 8bocm*ker, whom she soon quitted, and going to Dover, married a surgeon of that town. Having been 2215^ ^^"gh some legal tlaw when tned f ,r bigamy at the Maid tone she next appears in London as S of John Carleton. During the period between these two last marriages, however, the princess en ST2 8?me ^ventures.. She embarked on board a merchant ship, which carried her to Holland, from whence she traveled by land to the city or Cologne. Being mistress of money, she took a fine lodging there, and lived m greater sple:idor than she had ever be fore done. At Spa, sho met an old of ficer, who fell in love with her, and who ?5? *1?^ ntM> U*&> not miles distant. By the assistance of her iandladythe adventuress managed this ?flair with so much artifice, thathcr an cient beau presented her with several fin* and valuable jewels, besides a gold chain with a very cestly medal, which hat! j S1V?U hlm 'or some remarkable gocni service, against the King of Sweden. irith iman urged p&8H'on With all the vehemence of a young lover making her very large promise, till a-! last she gave her consent to espouse hiii. in three days. He left the preparation of all things necessary to her care, giv ing her large sums of money for that pur. pose. Madam now perceived that it was h)gh time to be gone, and in order to get otf with the greatest security, she ac quainted her landlady with the design the hostess, who had before share! pret' ty largely in the spoils of the old cap. tain, who was willing to hearken to anv proposal that would help her a little more to fleece the inamorata. The cun ning princess, however, was resolved to have all the booty to herself; and to ac complish this, she persuaded her land-' lady to go into the town a:id get a place for her in some carriage that did not go to Boulogne, in ordir that her lover should not know whither to follow her The old woman saw that this precaution was very necessary, and therefo.-e she went to provide fcr the safety of her guest. This was all the adventuress wauted: for as soon as she found herself leu alone, she broke open a chest, where she had discovered her landlady put her treasure, and there she observed not only what she had shared with her out of the old man's benevulence, but also ui ad ditional sum of money not inconsiderable She tovk all that was worth taking; and syon packed up her parcel, and Laving before privately made sure of a passage to Utrecht, she tied thither; from thence she went to Amsterdam, where she Sjld her gold chain, medal, and some of the jewels; then proceeded to Rotterdam and then to the Brill, where she took ship ping for England. I She landed at Billingsgate one morning very early, in March. 16G3, but found no house open till she came to the Exchange Tavern, where she first obtaiued the title of German princess in the following iria ner : In the tavern she got in com aw with some gentlemen, and they address ing her, the tears trickled down her cheeks; she sighed, sobbed, and the cause being demanded, told them that she little thought once of being reduced to such wretched necessity as she was now. Here she repeated the history of her extraction and education, telling them about her pretended father, the Lord Henry Von Wolway, who, she said, was a soveie.gn prince of the Empire, independent of any man but his sacred imperial majesty. 44 Certainly," con tinued she, 44 any gentleman may sup pose what a mortification it must be to a woman born of such noble parents, and bred up in all the pomp of a court, under the care of an indulgent father, to suffer as I now do; yet why do I say indul gent father ? alas! was it not his cruelty that banished me, his only daughter, from his dominions, only for marrying a nobleman of the court whom I loved to excess, without his knowledge ? Was it not my father that occasioned my dear lord to be cut off in the bloom of his age by falsely accusing him of a design ? against his person?a deed which his vir tuous soul abhored ?" Here she pre tended her sorrow would permit her to rehearse no more of her misfortunes, anc the whole company were touched with compassion at the melancholy relation, which they all looked upon as true! giving her, out of mere pity, all the money they had about them, and prom ising to meet her again with more, which they accomplished, and over afterwards called her the 44 unfortunate German princess," a name she laid claim to in all companies. The Exchange Tavern was kept by one Mr. King when the princess received her honorary title. As she was come from foreign parts, with great riches, mine host believed the truth of what she had affirmed. Nor was she backward in telling him that she had raised all her wealth by private contri bution from some princes of the Empire, who were acquainted with her circum stances, and to whom she had made her self known. She added, that not one of those who had given her anything, dared to acquaint her father that they knew where she was, because they were all hie neighbors, ana vastly inferior to him in the number and strength of their forces ; 44 for," said she,44 my father is so inexor able, that he would make war on any prince who he knew extended hit pity to me." This brings the narrative back to John Oarleton, her third husband, who was brotto-in-lsw to Mr. King.

U What are we to do for boys ? When we were a boy, there were lots of bays, but they have grown scarce, until there is hardly a boy left. As we walk through the streets we read in shep windows, "Boy wanted." When we pick up a newspaper, the first advertisement that strikes our eye is?"A boy wan-' ted." In a word, everyl?ody wants a bor. Now, in view of the grand scarcitv of boys, what are we to do for a substance to light our tires, to sweep our rooms and to run our errands? The other day a little fellow about fourteen years of age, begging his par don, we took him for a boy,) applied ' > us for a situation*. ? What can yo: do?" we inquired. A Hti.v of aim -st ?7etyti.:nt? v the reply. '?At-- you quid at errands ?" "ttelf, sir, I don't much like tc de ?? rands." "Can you sweep an i dust well?" "Wh^, sir, younp men don't sweep and dust any nowadays.

"Oh, (a little vexed) I cou'd, bat?" "But what?" "It ain't exactly the thing," "Yet at your age, we Damme, ?r," picking op his hat and striding towards the door. "y,?u dont take me for a boy, do you?" Amused, but not astonished, we ask?i ourself the question?what are we to do for boys? If some euterprising Yankee woe Id un dertake to get up a lot of boys, he would make a hrge fortune in a short time, for never within our recollection have boys been in such demand. of0ld AGK.^Thc oeosus of 1850 shows us that the oldest person then living in the United States was 140. This person was an Indian woman re siding in North Carolina. In the same State was an Indian aged 125, a negro woman 111, two black females 110 each, one mulatto male 120, and several white males and females aged from 106 to 114. In the parish of Lafayette, La., was a female, black, aged 120. In several of the States there were ft>und persons white and black, aged from 110 to 115. There were in the United States in 185(>, 2,555 persons over 100 years. This shows that about one person in 9,000 will be likely to live to that age. There are now about 20 000 perrons in the United States who were living when the Declaration of Independence was signed m 1776. They must necessarily be near 80 years old now in order to have lived at that time. Ihe French censos of 1851 shows onlv 102 persons over 100 years old, though their total population was near 26,000,000. Old age is, tbere~ fore, attained among us much more fre quently than in France.
