Just use boost::bind to create a "virtual" callback function based on your "real" one. I haven't got the syntax for callbacks to objects in my head right now, but

for (int i = 0; i < 10, i++)
sub[i] = node.subscribe("sub_name", 1, boost::bind(callback, _1, i));


would create 10 subscribers that are each tied to the function callback(msg_type msg, int i).

Edit: Using member-function as objects is done the same way as you'd do it without boost::bind.

Edit 2: With respect to the new question, the first thing I'd try is templating the subscriber to the correct datatype:
