C. M. Jacraw, ihiladtpfcii?Dear Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f rm, tor the last five years. Such was my condition fr twelve months that the physician* and all who saw me said I must die. Wnile in this < Andition, I was catrird to the watering places in Virg.nia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but was net benefited by any water to which 1 vras taken. While on my w ay hom*, I stopped a week at Rutherfor Iton, a -mall village in North Carolina, te try the effect of -ome Chalybeate water in that place. Abr ut the last of the week. I went into a drug store lo get some medicine for my child and myself. There were several of the viil ?te physicians in Ibc store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my case an l, after asking me some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the use of " Dr. lloofl inrt's German Bit ters," |irepared by y~u, and he insisted that I would try the Brttwrs He also called the next day at my room, and in-4'ted so much that I would try them that I asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, commenced taking it as directed, and f do say I was more benefitted by it than all the water and medicine 1 had ever taken. After reaching home one of my neighbors came to me for a prescription and medicine, (he ariyspep lie,) and i gave him nearly all the Bitters I had left, which effected much gool in his case. He has often called on me for more of the same k nd ot" merli cine, sa>ing he was more benefitted by it than anv other he had taken, but 1 have not been able to get any more for him or myself since; will you, there fore, please shio me a dozen or more as soon as pos sible.

"Hoofland's Ger man Hitlers" bave cured me of tils mo?t stubborn and a*~ravated case of the pilkb that, perhaps, ever fell to the lot of man My case is not a stranger in U is community, as I am well knowi in thi* arid the urrouudmg counties, and can truly sav that my re covery has astounded all tuy friends and relations, as I had tried everything reoomineuded. and nothing did me any g<> -d until I was prevailed upon to try th'- Bitten.

The case alluded to is that of Hand cock against Delacour, otherwise De Burgh, which first came before the Chancellor as far back as Tuesday, the 24th of January. The arguments occu pied several days, and all the available ability of the Irish bar was enlisted on both sides, the attorney general and soli citor general leading for the petitioner, and Mr. Henry Martly, (J C., and Mr. P. Fitzgerald, Q. C.,for the respondents. The petitioner in the case was John Stratford Handcock, the heir-at law of his neice, Miss Honoria Handcock, who died on the 12th December, 1&53, intes tate. On coming to take possession of his property he found that certkin deeds, executed by Honoria and her two elder sisters, who had pre-deceased her, cer tain judgments entered up by one of them, Josephine, and certain charges created by her will, would have the effect of depriving him of the estates and vest ing th m in the respondent, Delacour, a natural son of the mother of these young ladies, a minor. The petition was, that these deeds and other charges should be set aside. As the case is not without its lessons both in morals and politics, I we lay before our readers a short abstract of it, taken from the opening statement of the petitioner's counsel, the attorney general. The statement is, indeed, ex parte, but it has not been answered?un less an agreement to give the attorney general's client all he asks, for a consid eration of ?20,000, can be called an an swer. It appears that a certain Miss Catha rine Josephine Kelly was a great beauty, and also a very ambitious and designing woman; and it was alleged that she? with the assistance of J crd Clanricade, j formed the project of allying herself to j Mr. Handcock, a gentleman of consider-: able property. She succeeded, and the estates, after a life use, were settled on the children in tail, with a jointure of ?7o0 a year for the widow. Mr. Hand cock's friends were averse to the mar riage, yet U took place, and threodaugh ters were the issue. From 182s to. 1840 there were no further children. In this latter year, in consequence of a suspicion of too grea^ an intimacy between Lord Clanricade and Mrs. Handcock, there was a separation, and Mr. llandcock went to France. In October of that yt ar, Mrs. Hand cock was the guest of Lord Clanricarde at Portuma Castle. This fact seems, however, to have escaped the recollection of Lord Clanricardc, *? bis affidavit state s that it was impossible nfr liftn to have seen her during that year, as he parked the winter in Russia. A deed of separ ation was executed in July, 1841, andii. the same year, when Mrs. Handcock was on the continent, and afar she had been some time separated from her husband, she gave birth to an infant, the present respondent, but no one could say who was his father or when he was born. In 1842 Handcock returned, a dying man, to England, and took up his abode in | Michael's road, Brompton. There was reason to believe that when he first came there he was not anxious to have renewed intercourse with Lord Clanricarde or his wife. Lord Clanricarde, however, prevailed upon him to accept of his good oftioes. lie reconciled the husband and father, a few days before his death, in 1843, to his discarded wife and deserted childien. Which of us would have thought, asks the Morning News, as we returned through Michael s road, Brompton, on a winter's eve in 1843, diseontented per haps alter a day of fruitless toil, that at that moment a good Samaratan, in the shape of a fashionable marquis, was in that humble suburb, restoring the out cast, reconciling the estranged, and par taking of the exquisite enjoyment of wit nessing the happiness of which he was himself the author. Alas ! there is an other side to the picture ! Hear the At torney-General : 44A notice had been served on the re spondent in this cause to produce a diary which the eldest daughter, Josephine, appeared to have kept, and he (the At torney General) had examined it, and anything more touching than the account so given by that young lady of the mis erable scenes she then witnessed, he never heard. The father was in the cus tody of a spy in the pay of Mrs. Hand cock, her object being to acquire the cus tody of those children and the control of their fortunes. It was known that Mr. Handcock had made a will by which his brother-in-law was to nave been entrust ed with the most delicate office of pro tecting his children, and this spy was placed about him, and like persons in his condition, he endeavored to betray the person he was employed to betray and the person who employed him, his object being to obtain a will for himself. " However, the daughter was brought to the father by Lord Clanricarde from day to day, until his affections were aroused and weakened, and he was pre vailed upon to add a codicil to his will in July, by which the unhappy gentleman appointed the wife he had discarded the guardian of his three daughters. He was attended by Lord Clan nearde's fam ily physician, who was pledged to secre cy ; his brother, therefore, had much dif ficulty in learning where be was, and ar rived only after he had breathed his last. The clergyman who attended him de bcribes it aa a u*o?i tiigUUul UwUibtd, In Jul/, 1843, be (Utd. miUr th* tM Appointed g^rd'wo* the children, and Lord Clan SZSrW* Pr?PertJ- The widow had Shfn fh? * JF1" J0;nllure' bu* lord ship, the guardian of the property, made her an allowance of ?1,500 a vear ? ?nH the Court, acting on the security of this nobleman of high rank, granted her a s::i; tr**mi So the necessities and comforts of the three young ladies were at least provided for. Again hear the Attorney General: *' lie oould state positively, that while they resided in this mansion, a more ab ject state of misery than those young ladies were kept in he hardly reuumiber. ed ever to have read of. He could not but apprehend that their early and pre mature deaths were owing to the manner in which they were treated, and he trust ed in God they were not so treated de signedly. Daring this time the boy called John Delacour here, but who went by an eunhonious name, and one to which perhaps he had as good a title-John de Burgii?was living i'i the house. Instead of being treated as the unhappy daugh ters were, this adopted son was indulged in every possible manner: and, indeed, it appeared in the evidence that they Ithe daughters) were obliged to perform even menial services for him; and it would seem that greater cruelty was never practiced by a jailer towards his prisoners in the worst of times than this unnatural mother displayed towards her daughters,especially whever they thwart ed this young adopted child of hers " In the mean time, too, the mother it appears, had take? to drinking; and this may perhaps somewhat palliate the unnatural and loathsome nature of her conduct to her poor daughters. She ac cuses one daughter of criminal conduct with her solicitor, saying also that her person was offensive?that she was rot ten; and, to account for the existence of young Delacour, she states that he was the natural son of another daughter, by a French gentleman of high position.' In 1847 the daughters Mary Ann and Josephine executed disentailing dbeds the gra-itee in both being Lord Cianri carde. In 1849, Mary Anne, the eldest daughter, died, shortly after coming of age, leaving her mother .CIO,000. The property then became vested in the younger daughters, Josephine and Hono r a, who executed disentailing dee-'s in February, 1851, to Lord Clanricarde. In that, month, Josephine s end was ap proaching. She made a will which was drawn by Lord Clanricarde, by which she left ?10,000 to her mother, to be paid on the marriage of her sister ; and in the event of her sister dying without issue, before her mother, her landed es tate was to he sold, and the proceeds given to her mother absolutely. In June, 1851, Josephine died, and it was sworn that the exemplary mother manifested neither surprise nor regret but looked upon it as the accomplish! ment of her most desired end. In 1853, the last daughter, Ilonoria, conveyed all her property in trust to Lord Clanricarde, subject to an appointment to herself for life, and afterwards to her mother, her heirs and assigns; but after the cx?cu ti?n of these deeds she never had posses sion of them in reality or substance. In addition to these deeds, the mother ob tained from her s:ck daugbier, on the brink of the grave, a bond for ?4 000. In the meantime the mother sickened herself, and died before her daughter, in Uie latter part of 1853; the daughter dying on the 12th of December of that year, intestate. The mother, who com plained so much of her poverty, during life, as to be obliged to deny her daugh ters the merest necessaries, leaves to her son Delacour 20,000, aud to Honoria, ?50. Delacour claims the chief part of the Ilandcock estates under the various deeds, Ac., executed by the daughters; the' petitioner claims as heir at-law to Ilono rf*. The executors under the will cf Josephine oppose ^o does the brother of Mrs. Ilandcock. Juigment was di ferred in expectation of a compromise, and the compromise has been effected. The deeds and will are to be cancelled ; the petitioner, Ilandcock, is to get the estates, and he is to pay ?20,000 to the respondent, Delacour, on his coming of age and in the meantime, four per cent, on that amount. Delacour is now only fourteen years of age; and should he die before attaining twenty-one, the peti tioner will have the estates absolutely without payment. The intimation out doors is that the hu&oand and the girls were all disposed of by slow poison, but of that there can be, of course, no evidence. 44Pat What Thop 0\ve5t."?When I see a husband spending his time in tav erns, and forsaking his family, I say?
