IV a* Sir : Being on the point of leaving the city, I ??ail myself of a f?w idle moment* to thank you kindly for the medicine yon sent me, and ehich has restored me to the use of my limbs. I beg yon to send m* four bottles more, to carry on my voyage. 8it ?e I had the fortune to use Dr. Hampton's Vege table tincture my confidence is no strong that, in gratitude 10 the proprietors of raid medicine, I beg you tt> present mv respect* to them, and induce tbem Ho make it more publicly known as a sure Rlieutoaiic cure. Having railed on me on the 19th of Apfil last, and seen me prostrated on my bed, 4ijle* in all my liabs, you can appreciate nearly a* wm|1 as myself the prompt relief I rewired from Dr. Hampton's Tincture, and I am positive had h not been tor your strong and forcible recommenda tions I should still have been in bed. It it really a pity ibis specific should not be ap proved by medical men, and like all patent drugs it should suffer the imputation the public generally give tr such preparations. I myself, who was al ways opposed to a patented specific, took this medi cine %ith reluctance, and without confidence in it, and it was only through your disinterested, friendly recommendations, and my critiial situation that in duced me to try this really beneficial Vegetable Tincture. Ycfi may inform Messrs. Mortimer A Mowbray that |hey are at liberty to make nw of my name in ippart of the good effects of Dr. Hampton's .ble Tincture, as it has cured me in five weeks ironic Inflammatory Rheumatism, contracted tropical ctima&u, and of seven years'periodical on. I have only used three bottles, and find iven the deformed porta of My hands are fast o their former natural appearance. I have been under t(>e treatment of several phy sicians in London and Paris, without any apparent benefit; also, while In New Ycrk, having tried the Thompsonian and Homaepathic remedies, after hiv ing been tormented with galvanic ba'teries, oold ahl aromatic baths, and hundreds of internal and external medicines, all to no effect, I am, so far, cured by this Hampton's Vege able Tincture only.

At the last term of the Orange Co. (N.,Y.) Court, the following cue was tried, upon which the jury was addressed by the defendant who had concluded to appear in his own defenoe : The People vs. James Ailtrton.?Tais was a very interesting oese, rendered so from the fact that the defendant acted as ''his own lawyer" on the trial, without having the ad vantage of being one of the legal fraternity. His "summing up,' of which we are able to give nearly a verbatim report, with the excep tion of the acting, was decidedly rich, and afforded much amusement for the legal gen tlemen present. The defendant, who is a small, red-haired, thin specimen of a Yankee, was indicated for an assault and battery on one Mr. Dodder. The facts, as divulged upon trial are briefly as follows; The defendant is in the employ ot the Mongaup Valley, Forrestbur# and Port Jervis Plank KoadCompany as atoll gatherer, and resides upon the road, some miles above Port Jervis. He and the com plainant, Air. Dodder, are near neighbors. On a Sunday in February last, tbe deft, saw the complainant, in the act of beating his (def t's) cows along the highway, and as an induce ment for him to quit, hurled a few stones at him, one of which, as tbe complainant testi tied. struck him on the back of the m ck. The testimony being concluded, the de fendant addressed the jury as follows : Gentlemen of the Jury : I don't know much about law, and since the trial has bees going on, 1 have Boncluded that I ought to kn?w a little more. I ought to apologise, perhaps, for appearing in my own defence, and will do so by telliDg you, that I feed one lawyer, and hired another, in this case, but they both come up misBing when 1 need them most. 1 sup pose I might havo secured the services of some of these other 'limbs of the law' that 1 see around me, but having been cheated by two of 'em, I concluded to go it 'on my hook,' and here I am 1 I want to tell you, gentlemen, be fore 1 go farther, that it is not my fault that this case is here taking up t6e time of this honorable court. I think you will give me credit for telling the truth, when I say that it ought to have been tried before a Justice ot the Peace, it being better adapted to the ca pacities of such a court, than ot this one Af ter this difficulty, Dodder did get a warrant tor me from Squire Cuddeback, over in Deer ark. He then charged that I had insulted iin, but five or six months has freshened his recollection, and he now says that 1 assaulted and battered him. I believe there is some difference between the two charges Dodder says he swore to tbe complaint be fore Squire Cuddeback, and I leave it for you to say wnether he tell the trutb "now in saying tnat I battered him. I wa*, taken by a constable before tne squire, and either because* the Justice was ashamed of what he had already dune, or hadn't time to attend to it. I don't know which, it went down. Two or three weeks after that I was arrested again, and my wife having been conlned. I thought it best as a dutiful husband, to be around hum, so I got rid of it by giving secu rity for my appearance at court. You know, gentlemen, that I am in the em ploy of the Mongaup Valley, Forrestburg, and Port Jervis Plank Koad Company, as a gate keeper. This company, it seems had suffi cient confidence in my integrity and honesty as to place me in that important station, and even if 1 should receive $3,000 and steal $1,600 of it, that s between me and the company, and its none of Dodder's business Now. when the company sent me up along this road to collect toils, this Dodder was one of tbe in habitants 1 found there in the woods, and I will say for him that he is a very fair speci men ot the rest of the population. But there isn't any of them to appreoiate all the benefit? ef this plank road. It let out to civilization a class of people who never before realized *.be idea that there was such a thing as civilized life, and this Dodder is one of them, it is a fs 3t that soon alter I moved there, a young woman, 17 years old, come down out of the mountains on the plank road, one day, and said 6he had never been out before, bhe fairly seemed surprised to see a white man, and after asking a tew questions, went buck into the woods. This jDodderwas my nearest neighbour, and a good deul nearer than I wanted him; and 1 hadn't been there long, before i heard he had been lying auont me to one of the Directors, and I soen found out that he wanted to get his son. who was sworn here against me, in my place. But he hasn't done it yet,; and if you don l convict me, I reckon he won't very soon. It wont take long to dispose of Dodder No 2. He testifies that he saw me throw three stones at his father, and saw the " old man dodge." On his cross-examination he says that he was in his own house in the woods, and had to look over a hill twenty feet high, and also over three slab fences and two stone walls. VVell, if he tells the truth, all I wish is that I had young Dodder's eyes. He is cer tainly a remarkable boy, and can't consist-' ently deny his '?father I am willing to admit that i done wrong to throw stones at Dodder, and 1 apologize to all the world and this county particularly, for it. fhe Doctors tell us that tbere are two cuses tor all diseases, predispositionandexcitability; 1 think it was the latter cause that moved we to stone Dodder. I therefore confess myself guilty of the assault, but the battery I. deny; and if you find me guilty of the battery I wilt appeal from the decision to the Court of High Heaven itself before I will submit to it. Now. gentlemen, you saw Mr. Dodder and heard him swear against me. I asked him a great many quest.ons; and I iwas sorry to hear hiin answer him as he did. I might have asked him if he didn't kill my cat, and if he didn't stone my chickens, because they tres passed in his woods, where actually the rooks are so thick that the brake's can t find their way through them; but then I knew he would deny it, and it would grieve me to hear him. He admits that he was driving my thsee cows up the road, and that he struck at one of em, but says it was with a small switch. I have proved that, this switoh was a pole about 10 feet long and about 3 inches across the butt end, and I have also proved that when he struck, the cow fell. it is true, my witness Cfnldn't swear that the stick hit her, he was So far off, but take the blow and the fall together,' and we can guess the rest. If you, gentle men, should see me point a gun at a man and pull the trigger, see the flash and hear the re rirt, and at the same time see the man drop, thins you would say that I shot him, al though you might not see the ball strike him. Now, the fact is, gentlemen, that on Sun day I wai laying on my lounge ia my houee, when my wile said to me that Dodder was chasing my oows I jumped up and pulled on my boots and went out of dwors, and saw Dodder and the cows coming up the road "I is tree he says he was not driving them but says ha and the oows was both goiag along the road in one direction, and this was as near ae I could get him to the cows or the truth; but it is proved that the oows were going ahead of him, and he wa* following after them, striking at them, with this little switch, 10 feet long 3 inches across the butt, and 1 reckon you'll think he was 44 driving" {hem. I sung out to him, 44 Dodder, stoi>. but he didn t ebey my order, and 1 just tnrew a stone in that direc tion, which went about 10 feet over his head ; at the same time g^u towards him, w*hhe he was coming towan^HL He paid no attention, and I sung out agam, " Dodder, stop,!" Still he didn't mind me, and then I just threw another stone; hut on be came, and on ? went, and X threw the third stone, whioh he says hit him in the back of his neck, but whieh l think i? rather strange, as we ware geiug towards each other as fast aa we oootd go. Bat be never flacked up, and by (kit time we were wi'hio eight feet of each other 1 halted and hollered at the top of my voice, " Dodder, why in don't you stopabout then be did stop, and raited thie 10 feet ewitch, aa it to strike me. 1 sang oat?"
