WONDERFUL curc after nx year's suffering of one of the most highly respectable ciuzens of Maryt>.nd. Prejudice and skepticism cant stand before tbe many curcs made by Hampton's Vegetable Tinc ture. KiPDaLL'a Gaovf, Montgomery Co., Md ,) December 2, UJ54. J Mew*. Mori truer If Moi~hray: Gentlemen?In 1844 I had wlutir.y doctors called a violent and combined attack of Chrouic Riieuma usin and Gout, Irom which I was confined to my bed for three mouths. I had the very best phvsi cians, who tried other various remedies, none of which gave me any permanent relief. Not having ear* Irom pain day ot night, I became much emaci ateJ ; my whole sysitji a mass of disease, literati) ape 1 king, from the crown of my head to the sole ot my feet. I had to hobble about?most of tne uine confiued to the hoase; at Umcs so helpless that I had to be assisted 10 mv bed. I was also afflicted with a dreadlul couifh, great shortness of breath, sore throat, palpitation of the heart, and pain in my side so bad I coui I not lay on it. My arpeiite en tirely failed me. I gnve?;p all hopes of being restored to health again. 1 continued thus to suffer on from 1844 to 1856,a period of ?ii years. At tin* time my daughter saw at her grandmother's a pamphlet. with numerous certificates of curc4 made by Dr. II imp ton's Vegetable Tincture. 1 knew sonM of those who certified to cwea per formed on themselves and friends. I was rcsolv<*l 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. If fore I had taken the whole ol it, 1 felt mnch relief, which encouraged me to persevere. After taking the second bottle I was jetter than for the past six years, my appetite re turned?cough, pain 111 the side, shortness of breath fee., nearly all gone. I continued using this won dettul medicine until I had Liken seven bottles, ac cording to the directions; and I aiu happy to sa> Hampton's Tincture, and that alone restored mem perfect health, which has continued up to this tune ?a period of inrie years. 1 ain in the 65th year of my hge. I weighed yesterday 238 lbs., and I never f-it better in my life. One ol my neighbors was al so affected, like myself, witli Rheumatism, Sic. He has also been restored by the Tincture. I heard ot other cases; but 1 am satisfied mis Tincture, it tried, will speak for its?lf. My only object in de scribing to you my suffV-riags and the way I obtained relief, is to in iuce the .vlbc-t^d to iry this Tincture, which has, under the blessings of God done so much for me.

The following is a copy of the joint resolution which passed the IIousc of Representatives on Monday last, and which is at present exciting some atten tion: A R*solct!oi* authorising the Preji'entof the Unite^ States ti corner the title of Lie ? tenant, General by brevet, for eminent ser vice! Rtsoved, &c., That the grade of lieu tenant general be, and the same is hereby revived in the army of the United Slates, in order that when, in the opinion of the President and Senate, it shall be deemed proper to acknowledge eminent setviccs of a major general of tLe army in the late war with Mexico, in the tnoie al ready provided for in subordinate grades, the grade of lieutenant-general may be specially conferred by brevet, and by brevet only, to take rank from the ditt os such service or services: Provided, however, That when the said' grade of lieutenant-general by brevet shall have once been filled and have become vacant, this joint resolution shall thereafter ex pire aid be of no effect. The section of the acl. of Congress which established the grade of lieutenant general was passed on the 28ih of May. 1798, and is as follows, (Fifth Congress, session 2, chapter 47, 1798 :) Sec 5 And be it further cnacfed, That whenever the President shall deem ii ex pedient, he is hereby empowered lo aj> point, by and with the advice and con sent of the Senate, a commander of the army which may be raised by virtue of this act, and who, being commissioned fs lieutenant general, may be authorized to commaud the armies of the United Sta es, a ad shall le tn'.itledto the following p?y and emoluments, viz: ?250 monthly pay, $50 monthly allowance lor forage,"when the same shall not be provided by the United States, and forty rations per day, or money in lieu thereof at the current price?who shall have authority to ap point, from time to time, such number cl aids, not exceeding four, and secretaries, not - exceeding two, as he may judge proper, each to have the*rank, pay and emoluments of a lieutenant-colenel. The Mexican war transpired in the year 1847, and the pay of an officer with the rank of lieutenant-general, as pro vided in the act of 1798, from that date to the present, would amount to more than five thousand dollars. It will be seen that there is attached to the grade of lieutenant-general a staff of six per sons?four lieutenant colonels, and two secretaries, each with the rank and pay of a lieutenant-colonel. A IRiVE EES1SIAKCK Several years ago, when the south of Ireland was, as it ever has been within the memory of the oldest inhabitants, in a disturbeef state, a gentleman sdvanc d in years lived in a retired country house. He was a bachelor, and whether trusting in his supposed popularity, or imagining that the general alarm among the gentry was groundless, he continued in his lone ly mansion long after his neighbors had quitted theirs for a safer residence in town, lie had been indisposed for several days, and on the night he was attacked had taken supper in his bed room, which was on the ground flo-jr, and ir.side a parlor, with which it communicated. The ser vants went to bed; the hou^e was shut up for the night, and the supper tray, with its appm tenances, by a juovidential oversight, were forgotten in theold man's chamber. Some hours after ho had retired to bed, he was alarmed at hearing a window lift ed in the outer apartment; his chamber door was ajar, and tiie moon shone bril liantly through the open casement, rcn dering objects in the parlor distinct and peiceptibie to any person in the inner room. Presently a man leaped through the window, and three others followed him in quick succession. The old gen tleman sprang from his bed, but unfortu nately there were no arms ia the apart ment; recollecting, howev r, the forgot ten supper tray, he provided himself with a case-knife, and resolutely took his stand behind the door. lie had one ad vantage over the murderers, they were in full moonlight, and he shrouded in iin pentrable darkness. A momentary hesitation tex>k place among the party, who seemed undecided as to which of them should enter the dark room, for, acquainted with the lo call ties of the house, they knew where the devoted victim dept. At last one of the villains cautiously approached, stoe>d for a moment in the door-way, hesitated, advanced a step?not a whisper was heari, a breathless silence reigned around, and the apartment before him was dark as the grave itself. <4Go on, blast ye ! What the devil are ye afeered of?" said the rough voice of an associate behind; he took a second step and the eld man buried his knife in bis heart! No second thrust was requisite, for with a deep groan the robber sank upon the floor. The obscurity of the chamber, the sudden destiuction caused by that dead ly thrust, prevented the rutilans in the outer room from knowing the fate of their companion. A second presented himself, crossed the threshold, stumbled against his dead associate, and received the old man's knife in his bosom. The wound, though mortal, was not so fatal as the other, and the ruffian had strength to ejaculate that he was a dead man ! Instantly several shots were fired, but the old gentleman's position sheltered him from the bullets. A third assassin advanced, leveled a long fowling jiece through the doorway: and actually rented the barrel against the old man's b dy. The direction, however, was a sla ving one, and, with admirable self-possession,1 he remained steady until the murderer | drew the trigger, and the ball passed him ^ without injury ; but the dash from the guu unfortunately disclosed the place of 1 ^ his ambush. Then commenced a deeper ate struggie-the robber, a powerful and athletic ruffian, closed and seised his victim Hound the body?there was no equality between the combatants with regard to strength, and although the old iuan struck often and furiously with his knife, the blows were ineffectual, and he was thrown h.avily on the floor with (he murderer above him. Ereu then, at t bat moment, his presence of mind saved this heroic gentleman. lie found that the blade of the knife had turned, and he contrived to straighten it upon the floor. The ruffian s hands wcro already upon his throat?the pressure more suflocat lag?a few mornmts more and the con test must be ended; but an accidental movement of the body exposed the mur derer's s:d??the old man struck with his remaining strength a deadly blow?the robber s grasp relaxed-and with a yell of mortal agony he (ell dead across his exhausted antagonist! Horror-struck by th? death-shriek of their comrade, the bandit wanted cour age to cuter that gloomy clumber which had been already fatal to so many. They poured an irregular rolley in, and leap ing through an open window, ran off, leaving their lifeless companions behind. Lights and &ssisuncc cam? presently? the chamber was a pool of gore, and the old man nearly in a sUte of iusensibility, was covered with the blood, and encom passed by the breathless bodies of his intended murderers. lie recovered, how ever, to enjoy for years his well-won rep utation, and to receive from the Irish Vicerty the honor of knighthood, which never was conferred upon a braver man. UIIQUE QUOr&TIOVt. Such of our readers as are fond of the transcendental may admire the following which we take from an old Kngliah novel: " Our hero then turned, and touching his left hand to the shoulder of his horwl be rose perpendicularly, like a pyramid of fire, and again descended on his geat, as a ilake of snow on a rose-bud. He then touched his white wand to the neck of his .?tetd, who instantly mounted ihe air, like a winged Pegasus; while the Dachofs cried out, thinking her Harry a gone man ; but he returned as composed as though seated on a bed of cotton." 44 Happiness is sweetly fleeting ; it is not to be measured by time : it has no : ulcs to mark or distinguish the periods; it skims upon eagles wings, or rests upon down.'' "A smile, an expression, will tell a Listoiy; there are years of association in it, long years of memory and their ?hwlows." ??A writer has compared worldly friendships to our shadows, and a better comparison was never made, for while we walk in the sunshine it sticks to us, but the moment we eater the shade it deserts us." "The pebbles in our pathway weary ns. and make us footsore, more than the rocks which only require a kold effort to surmount." " Happiness is a bird that owns no cage but the bosom." "The purest metal is produced from the hottest furnace, and the brightest thunderbolt from the darkest stonu." "To imagine that mere i>cauty is suf ficient to keep the marriage bond unbro ken without heart and intellect, which a;one ean knit it firmly together, is to attempt wearing a garland of flowers without their stems''. "No one can improve in company for which he has not respect enough to be under some resiraint." "A good educa ion is a better safe guard for liberty than a standing army or severe laws." "In your language be plain, comely, honest, natural, clear, short and senten tious." " Deliberate with caution, but set with decision, and yield with a gracious ness or oppose with a firmness. "Brave actions are the substance of life, and gocxl sayings the ornaments of it." "The trials of life are the tests which ascertain how much gold there is in us." "One to-day is worth two to-morrows.* "Innocence is a flower which withers when U ached, but blooms not again, though watched by tears." "iouth wiites its hopes upon thesaod and age advances like the s?ca, and wash es them out." "Profit is the crown of labor.' "To be lowly born, if not base bom. detracts not from the bounty of nature's freedom, or an honest birth. Nubility claimed by the right of blood shows simply that our ancestors deserved what we inherit." "1 axiness travels so slowly that pov erty soon overtakes her." "An old maid is an odd boot, of no use without its fellow." "Whoever is courteous, honest, frank, sincere, truly honorable, generous and candid, is a true gentleman, whether rich learned or a laborer." "Jokes, the cayenne of conversation, and the salt cf lite." (CTSome weeks ago, a certain auction eer put up for sale a copy of Sparks' Washington. At first not one seemed inclined to bid, but after a while one of the spectator* offered fifteen cents a vol ume!
