Afoi tuner Mowhray : Geouemen?In 1844 1 had whatnr.y doctors called a *ioleut and coiuUned attack ol Chronic Rheuma turn aMI Gout, from which I was confined to my bed for three monUis. I had the verv best nliysi cians, who tried other various remedies, none of which gave me any permanent relief. Not having ea* from pain day or night, I became much eniaci ated ; my whole system a mass of disease, literally s(leaking, from the crown of iny he ?d to the nole ot my feet. I had to hobble about?roost of the time confined to the house; at times so helmet.* that I had to be assisted to my bed. 1 was also afflicted with a dreadiul cough, great Bhoruie** of breath sore throat, palpitation ol uie heart, and pain in my side so bad I could not lay on ?t. My appetite en tireiy failed me. I gave up ail hoped of b*ing restored to health again. 1 continued thus to suffer on from 1844 to I860, a period of six years. At this time my daughter saw at her grandmother'sa pamphlet, with nnmerous certificates of cures made by Dr. lian.o ton's Vegetable Tincture. I knew some of tlios? who certified to run-.s p?>r tormed on themselves and fnends. I was resolved to give it a trial. 1 informed uiy doctor ol" it. He Ejected; but my sufferings were so great that I prr> cured one bottle, and, before 1 had taken the wnole ul it, 1 felt much relief, which encourage,! me to persevere. After taking the second bottle I was setter than for the past six years, my app?tile re turned?cough, pain in the side, shortness of breath ~C'" nearly all gone. I continued using this won derful medicine until I had taken seven bottles, ac cording to the directions; and 1 am happy to say Hampton's Tincture, and that alone restored nie to perfect health, which has continued up to this time ?a period of three years. 1 am in the 65t!i year of ***? 1 weighed yesterday 336 lbs., and I never j*tler,,n. my l,fe? nof ol my neighbors was al so affected, like myself, with Rheumatism, fcc.

WANTED?A yong man wiahM to obtain board in a re.peoUble private family whara hia moral deportment and example would ba oonsidarad an equivalent. Refer ences raqnired Address B . drawer 63 P. 0. Dear Mr. Editor : I find the above modest advertisement in this morning's Leader, and as it meets mj most urgent want, save one, (a husband,) permit me to respond to the young man s 44 want'' through your columns. I am a widow, 44 fat, fair," and not 44 forty," sole guardian of two daughters, unsophisticated beings, bora and nui tured in the "piney woods'' of Maine. My family is 44 respectable," none of its members having been sent to State prison or Congress : and 44 private," none of my family having held office, though a dis tant one did run for assessor. My graud parcnts sought this country at an early age, actuated, like Mr. Partington, by a desire to 4' worship God and cheat the Indians after the dictates of their own conrcienccs and the customs of the tirae3." My daughters are artless beings, as yet uncontaminatcd by Western reckless and dissipation, and to them the compan ionship of a young man of 44 moral de portment and example," would certainly be "equivalent" to what he might "hoist in" in the way of board. Most happy shall I be to welcome this young man to the 44 comforts of a home," on condition that, always preserving his 44 moral deportment and example," he shall attend my innocents to lectures, fairs, and prayer meetings, crack the but ternuts, and hold the silk for winding teach Matilda, Jane graceful yet44 moral deportment," and aid llennah Ilemausin mastering 44 Love Not." Should occa sion require, he will be expected to wipe the chiua (white with gold band*,) and polish the door knobs. In addition to ordiuary board, he may expect sausages for breakfast on Sunday morning-, and fried potatoes on Wednes days. Truly yours and his, Marie Antoinette Carltox, Widow, *.<?> Herkimer st. P. S. This young man will not be tol erated in '* Caking the spoons." M. A. C. Coi.. Uentox ?>\ Tempera n?b ?Col. Benton has been presented with a silver piteh'T r>nd salver, as a testimonial good will by the Mercantile l ibrary As sociation of New York, lor Lis generosity in lecturing 'or them. Col. lien ton sends a very happy acknowledgment to the as ftociation. in which he gives his valuable experience of water drinking, in prefer ence to any other beverage, lie says : 44 Whcu I was young, i became what Dr. Franklin was?my only point of re semblance to that illustrious man?when he worked at his early cali.rg in Lon don, an aquatic?the term which hif comrades applied to designate him as a water-drinker. I also drank water, and nothing stronger, in the early part of my life?the first half of it; and to that ab stinence from all vinous spirituous aud fermented fluids, I attribute the good health and geneial vigor which I now enjoy. As this allusion touches a point at which a word might be useful to othci young men desirous to advance them selves in life, and to have good health in old age, I will go on to say that, at that time, and in the South, it was the cus tcm in every house to otTer something to drink to all visitors?even boys; and that excuses were no defence for tho*c who would refuse. Pressure, importu nity, custom, broke down all excuscs. and it became necessary to oppose will where reason was unavailing; so 1 made a law for myself that I would drink noth ing until I should be in the decline of life, and might need it; and resolutely pleading that law, I afterwards escaped importunity. It was the tirst stand, "solitary and alone," that 1 ever made; but not the last. I was young enough, and silly enough, at that time, to sup pose that this decline would come upon me at thirty; and so fixed that age as the limit for my law. When thirty came, I did not feci the decline, and extended the time, and eventually relaxed into tem perance, and have remained at that point ever since. Thus, the first half of my life was abstinent?the second half tem perate; and to these conditions I attribute whatever of mental and bodily vigor I may now have, and whatever of business application I have ever shown. The Beard.?A curious festival was held in honor of the beard, and in sup port of the movement in favor of wearing it, at Chicago, a few days ago. It is be lieved to be the tirst festival ever held in honor of the hirsute appendage. It was called the "Bearded ball," and no gen tleman was admitted without some hairy honor to his f:ice. Of course, the move ment is too rccent to require every man to wear the whole beard?hence some had the moustache alone; some the lower beard alone: some sported the dark, glossy whisker, with an otherwise smooth face?a whisker the very polish of whose hairs told the perfection of the dye; while oihers appeared wbose whole faces were covered with the incipient ef forts of a new beard, in their white sprink lings of bristies where the chin and the cheek had hitherto been kept well shorn, so that altogether it looked like a stub ble Held, or a hemlock swamp after a fire, the charred stumps only being visible. IIow the ladies approved of the effort does not appeared. Many of them have already declared that they 44 shall set their faces against any such innovation." At the supper table many toasts were given, and speeches made denunciatory oPshaving. Among the rest waa the following: Man?Full-grown, bearded, Nature'? great master work; too noble to be bare* The entertainment closed with ?? The Bearded Quadrille/' ft dance made (or the occasion. How opinions change oc the subject of the beard ! In Cicero's thne, to share or trim the beard was a sign of dandy ism. In describing the followers of Cati line, the orator hits off the exquisites of the day who had joined him as beardless, or with beards well trimmed. Among our Gothic ancestors on the shores of the Baltic, a young man could not hare the privilege of being shared until he could fhow the head of an enemy, killed by his own prowess. Extraordinary Indtranck.?O. H. Lay communicates to the Portland State of Maine the particulars of a case of ex traordinary endurance, which we con dense. On the 31st ult., Nathaniel Copp, a young man residing near the Glen House. White Mountains, commenced hunting deer, and was out four succes sive days. On the tifth day he left again for a deer killed the day previously about eight miles from home. He dragged the deer (weighing 230 pounds) home through the snow, and at 1 o'clock, p. m., start ed for anether one discovered near the place where the former wss killed, which he followed until he lost the track, about dark. He then iound that he had lost own way. With the thermometer ranging from 32 to 35 degrees below rero, to remain quiet was certain death, and accoidingly he commenced walking. He soon heard a deer, and pursuing him by moonlight, overtook him, leaped upon his back and cut his throat. He then dressed him, and taking out the heart placed it in his pockct for a trophy. He continued walk in; twenty-one hours, and the next day at about lrt a. m., he came cut at or near Wild Biver, in Gilead, Me., having walked on snow-shoes the unparalleled distance of forty milts, without rest, a part of the time through an intricate growth of underbrush. His friends becoming alarmed at his prolonged absence, started in pursuit of him. Four men follcmed the tracks in the snow, and after being out twenty-six hours, he was found. The deer which young Copp had killed and dressed, was also found. Copp seems not to have realized the great danger he had passed through, and although his medical ad visers say that he cannot entirely re cover the use of his limbs for from uiree to six months, talks with perfect cool ness of taking part in hunts wliich lie had planned for the next weak. How to Begin* Btsivkss.?One of the wi althiest merchants of New York city tells us how he commenced business: I entered a store and askid if a clerk was not wanted. ??No," in a rough tone, was the answer, all being too busy to bother with me? when I reflected that if they did not want a clerk, they might want a laborer: but I was dressed too fine for that. I went to my lodgings, put on a rough garb, and the next day went into the same store and demanded if they did not want a porter, and again, "No, sir," was the response?wben I exclaim ed, in despair almost, "A laborer? Sir, I will work at any wages. Wips is not my object I must have employment, and [ waut to be useful in business."1 These last words attracted their attention: and in the end I was hired as a laborer in the basement and subcellar at a very low pay, scarcely enough to keep body and soul together. In the basement and sub cellar i soon attracted the attention of the counting-house and chief clerk. I saved enough for my employers in little tilings wasted to pay my wages ten times over, and they soon found it cut. I did not let anybody about commit petj lar cenies, without remonstrance and threats of exposure, and real exposure if remon strance would not do. If wanted at 3 a. m., I never growl ed, but told every body to go home, "and 11 will see every thi?g /ight." I loaded off at day-break packages for the morn ing boats, or carried them myself. In short, I soon became indis]>ensable to my employers, and I rose, and rose, until I became head of the house, with money enough, as you see, to give me any luxu ry or any position a mercantile man may desire for himself and children in ehis great city. "Dinna Gaxg thkSamk Wat."?The Rev. Dr. Witherspoon, formerly Presi dent of Princeton College, was once on board a packet ship, where, among other passengers, was a professed Atheist. The unhappy man was very fond of troubling every one with his peculiar belief, and broaching the subject as often as he could get anybody to listen to him. He did not believe in a God and a future state not he ! By and by, there came on a terrible storm, aBd the prospect was that all would be drowned. There was much consternation on board, but no one was so much frightened as the professed Athe ist. In this extremity he soi^ht out -the clergyman, and found him in the cabin, calm and collected, and in the midst of danger, and thus addressed him: " O, I>r. Witherspoon! Dr. Witherspoon! we re all going; we have but a short time to stay. O, how the yessel rocks ! We're all going; don't you think we are ?" The Doctor turned to him with a solemn look, and replied in broad Scotch ; " Nae doubt, nae doubt, mon; we're a' ganging; but you and I dinna gang the same way.,r Tho poor man was speechless; and the doctor, who had not said much before, then took the opportunity of setting before him ths guilt and follow of his conduct. Q^A genius out West was invtfed to take a game el poker, but be refused say ing: "No, I thankee, I played poker all one summer, and had to wear pants all the next winter. I have had no taste for that amusement since,"
