JOHN v. ILFON. Commissioner of General Land Office. January 25,1B55. jan 29?2aw6w II E A R THE WITNESS! BIGHTEOUS VERDICT! RHEUMATISM, COUGH, PAIN IN SIDE, fcc. 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. Krmdall's Guove, Montgomery Co., Md ,\ December 2, 1854. / Menrt. Mortimer !r Mowbray: Gentlemen?In 1844 I had what try doctors called a violent and combined attack of Chronic Rheuma usiu and Gout, from which I was confined to my bed for three mouths. I had the very best physi cians, who tried other various remedies, none of | which gave me any permanent relief. Not having ease from pain day or night, I became much emaci ated ; my whole system a mass of disease, literally speaking, from the crown of my head to the sole ot my feet. I had to hobble about?most of the time confined to the honse ; 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, and pain in my side so bad 1 could not lay on it. My appetite en tirely failed me. I gave up all hopes of being restored to health again. 1 continued thus to suffer on from 1844 to 1850, a period of six years. At this tune my daughter saw at her grandmother's a pamphlet, with nnmcrous certificates of cures 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 so great that 1 pro cured one bottle, and, before I had taken the whole of it, I felt much relidf, wtiich encouraged me to persevere. After taking the second bottle I was better than f'?r the past six years, my appetite re turned?cougii, pain in the side, shortness of breath tc., nearly all gone. I continued using this won derful medicine until I had taken seven bottles, ac cording to the directions; and I am happy to say Hampton's Tincture, and that alone restored me to perfect health, which has continued up to this time ?a period of thr??e years. I am in the 65th year of | my ago. I weighed yesti rday 238 llw.. and I never Celt better In my life. One ot my neighbors was al so affected, like myself, with Rheumatism. ?c. He has also been restored by the Tincture. I heard of other cases; but I am satisfied this Tincture, u | tried, will speak tor itself. My only object "in scribing to you my sufferings and the way I obtained relief, is to induce the afflict??d to try this Tincture, which has, under the blessings of God done so much for me.

I stopped at?neat little cottage sheltered by honey-suckl# ?nd woodbine .nd WM g4 Si dial welcome from the occupants, espe cially mine host, who was the pattern^ Yankee hospitality. ^ 01 He was a short, thick-set old gentle man, polite and courteous. His hair was whitened with the frosts of many years and his pale, white countenanLf wai farT 1 rt lare ; Jet' at times' *** face would brighten up as the merry throng around him jumped on his knee and kissed his ashey lips. On the whole, it appeared to me that he had seen better days ; and, after I had been with them some tune, in the course of conversation about the wealthy men in the great cities, he informed me that he could once count his thousands, and that in his younger days lie had traveled over many parts of Lurope, but that, being bondsman for a mercantile friend whose credit was con sidered reliable, by the change " Se market in some uncertain business, he Culed and made a bankrupt of him, and after paying his honest debts, he had but enough left to buy the small farm he now occupied, where he and his family lived in happy retirement. As the rain continued, they invited me to stop to tea assuring me that my horee should be well provided for, and that it woild put them to no serious inconve nience. Supper came and we sat down to a nice disn of pretty speckled brook trout. After supper 1 was invited to stay all night; and lie told me that, as I was a traveler, he would tell me of a little adventure he had when he was in Paris. He said he liked to warn youn^ people not to be allured into places whore they would be likely to get caught by the police. ? 3 It was about the middle of an after noon, in the mouth of September, that I arrived at Paris, and entered my name at a weli-known hotel. After supper I took a stroll around Some of the princi pal streets of the capital, and concluded to go to the theater in the evening. Eve ning came; it was warm and pleasant just swud to my pleasure. Off ! started to relieve my ennui. It was just eleven 0 clock when it was done, and I wander ed around to enjoy my silent reveries of home, and take a moonlight view of the noted metropolis. Ilow far I had wan I could not tell, when raising my, eyes suddenly 1 saw a female form, ar rayed in white, leaning agaiast a lamp post. She stood there, more like an an gel of beauty t han a missive of crime. As 1 neared she stepped forward, bowed and told me that by some mistake her partner had lost her. She was afraid to ?o home alone, and wished that I would iccompany her home. She was sorry to put me to such inconvenience, but she tvas really afraid to go. I, who was' :hen a young man, politely took her arm ind proceeded as she directed. She led me through numerous streets, until we :ame to a very pleasant looking brick aouse of two stories. She stopped, en-i :ered, and invited me up one flight of jtair.s into a small bed-room, neatlv fur lished, and left me, without a light, to -all her mother, who would be glad' to ?ee a gentleman who had been so kind as x) wait upon her home. Suddenly, I thought I had better go?I had done, 'hem but a slight service at best. I went 0 the door to go out. I was fastened. [ was a prisoner ! My mind conceived I >f all sorts of ideas regarding my welfare; t>ut I felt now that I was in an abode of wickedness. The artful woman had en trapped me. A feeling of fear began to Jtart over me. I look around for a place >f egress, but could see none. At last I lame in contact with something?it was \ bed. Perhaps it might be placed near I 1 window. As I was groping around, my feet hit against something under the I bed. It seemed like a human body. I stooped down and felt it. It was a hu-i man body, warm, in its last sleep?the deep of death. The shrill cry of murder i low rang on the air. j My hair stood on its ends, and my ?eeth chattered with inward horror. I x>uld hear a poliee posse clattering on m Pav,t'ments- They were on the stairs. The gallows would drink the blood of .ne innocent; there was no hope for me I was a stranger in a strange land; no! counsel could save me from my doom. Luckily the moon just then peeped into the window, and I jumped on ashed near by, from thence some fifteen feet to the ^rmind. My hotel was soon reached, md I sought my bed. In the morning, an looking over the newspaper, I read the following; Mubdrb.?Last night about 12 o'clock, the cry of murder rose from the second story of a house of ill-fame in the street . On entering the building, the murderer, as is supposed, escaped through the window, leaving his victim under the bed, with his throat cut from ear to ear. The police are on his track, and will arrest him by noon if he is in the city. After reading this I quietly settled mv bills, and left the city, resolving that I never would go home with another strange ifoman. 1 VTUUIAUi | Morning came?the bright sun bespoke i pleasant day; and after breakfast, I mounted my horse to proceed on my journey, determined to follow the old man's advice. A Flat Contrapictiok:?An orator holding forth in favor of "woman?dear iivine, concluded in this wise: I ih&r "H ?v*HBCS THE WEEKLY STAR. 1XAUTY AID ROYALTY?ntllLTT AJTD urmrm A beautiful girl was brought before Mr. Staler, of the Emigrant Department of the Mayor's Court, on Wednesday even ing. iier form was slender and grace ful, her features beautiful symmetrical, and the world seldom sees so sweet a smile as played about her mouth. But her roice, although it seemed to have once been the very soul of tenderness, was now roughened; she spoke and acted strangely, and told a sad story in a laughingway. She was slightly erased, ana it anected her as it did Ophelia, only that this dark-eyed Julia spoke with a greater vivacity and voluptuousness She said that she was born in Mecklenburgh, and the German was her mother tongue. When she was fifteen or sixteen she came to Brussels to visit her friend*. Iier beauty was noticed there by some of the panderers of the King of Belgium, and she became his mistress. His love of variety soon led him to discard her,* and she took refuge in a house of ill fame. She came to America soon after? which was only about a year ago?and was married to a shoemaker. But he did not please her, and she 44 did not like tLa smell of the wax," so she formed other intimacies. Her story is somewhat frag mentary and disconnected, but we have a glimpse of her husband finding her in a louse kept by colored people, lie could endure amounts of white amours, but that was too much, and so he gave her a vigorous beating. She could not enduie this, especially from a shoemaker, and so they parted. She was soon after taken to a police station, where she says she was entertained in a very friendly way by many of the officers. From went to a house in Mulberry street, near Chatham square, where she staid only one night. For three or four nights afterward, she slept about in one place and another, and then she was taken by a runner to a place in Reade street. The next day, she went to live with a tailor on First avenue. Two days after, she found her way, by some means, to the Commis sioners of Emigration, and having left ar ticles of dress in all these places, She was sent by them to the Mayor for a po lice officer to go with her to find theni. The Mayor sent to the house in Reade street, ordering the keepers to appear be fore him and produce this runner, or they should repent it. The lady of the establishment stated, on her arrest, that she gave the runner two dollars for bring ing the girl to her, and had not seen him since: that the girl was there only one night, and that she would rather have given fifty dollars than that she should have been there at ail. She also stated that this girl pretended she could be all sorts of "models," and that when they tried her in a tableau she could not do a thing, ilow long the poor girl has been crazy has not yet been ascertained; pro bably she has been so for some time. The outrages that have been committed upon her, and the places at which they have been committed, certainly reouire the at tention of the authorities. The enforce ment of the Sunday liquor law will do little for the reputation of the city, while the beauty of an unprotected crazy girl renders her liable to violation, and the wretches who committed it are suffered to go unwhipped, and while the pimps who furthered it are allowed to carry on their detestable avocation?well known as many of them are to the police.?S. Y. Tribune, Feb. 2. Using up tiik Turxs.?A Constantinef pie correspondent of the Lendon Times shows how the war is using un the mil itary power and resources of the Turks. The "sick man" is at the point of death, and this correspondent seems to think that the sending of the remnant of Omar Pacha's army of the Danube to the Cri mea, will give him the finishing stroke. lie says "a few months have proved how baseless was the great fabric of Turkish military power, and how much the well appointed force which encouraged even veteran statesmen to connive at or insti gate the rejfetion of the Vienna note, was beyond the real resources of the country, and incapable of being replaced when destroyed by the calamities of war."? And adds: In the year 1854, the Turks have lost upwards of 100,000 men. The army of Romello is now not more than 80,000 strong. The forces at Kars and Batcum have been destroyed by the enemy, and still more by the crimes of the comman ders. Egypt will hardly supply any more men, and little is to be eipectcai from Tunis. The troops sent to the Cri mea have perished miserably in the hov els of Balaklava. What remains of the Ottoman array is dispirited, wanting in most necessaries, and totally changed from the fine force which first met the enemy a year ago. There are no longer men to be had for the army, nor do there exist funds for the re-constitution of it The Turkish Ministry has not the energy nor even the will to make great exertions: tbey seem to have left their country entirely in the hands of the Western Powers, and to be indisposed to do any thing which they can avoid. As the Austrians have en gaged to defend the Principalities, the remains of Omar Pacha's army need not be left on the Danube; the Porte has there fore sent them to the Crimea, with what results a short time will show.
