TESTIMONY FROM NORTH TABOLINA. Certifuate of Dr. W. Smith, of Pine Hill, Rich mond County, JT. C. Pink Hili., March 4th, 1854. Dr. C. M. J acnox, Philadelphia?Dear Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f rm, for tli" la?t five years. Such was my condition fa twelve months that the physicians and all who saw ine said 1 inu-t die. While in this condition, 1 was carried to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but wai nat benefited by any water to which 1 was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at RutherforHon, a small village in North Carolina, t? try the effect of ?o<ue Chalybeate water in that place. About the last of the week, I want into a drug store to get some medicine for my child and myseif. There were several of the village physicians in the store, and nne of them seemed to take some interest in iny case and, ar'i? r asking me some questions, said he had l?een a dyspeptic, and had been gn-atly bene fitted by the Use of '? Dr. lloofl nd's German Bit ters," prepared by y u, ar.d lie insisted that I would t y the ltitt -rs He also called the next day at r-;y room, and ioaLted so much that I would try them that I asked b:ni to get me oue bottle. He did it, and I commenced taking it as directed, and I do say I was more benefitted by it than all the water and medicine 1 had ever taaen Alter reaching home one of my reighbors came to nir f jr a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) anJ i gave him nearly all the Bitters I had left, which effected much good in Ins case He ha- often called on me for more of the same k nd of medi cine, saying he was wore benefitted by it than any other he had taken, but I have not been able to got any more for him or myself since; will yo:i, there fore, piease shin me a ilozen or more as soon as pos sible.

Jackson?Dear Sir: Allow me to ex press to you my sincere thanks for your discovery of a medicine which, to say the least of it, ha* ef fected a cure that all other ined:cities, ttu.t I have taken, have entirely failed to ??o. "Hooffand's Ger man Bitters" have cured me of ths most stubborn and aj^ravated case of the piles that, perhaps, ever fell t* the lot of man My case is not a nranger in community, as I am well known in this and the urroi.rtding counties, and can truly sav that my re covery has aet-junded all my friends and relations, as I ttied everything reaoimiiended, and uotinng did me any go si until 1 was prevailed upon to try the Bitters.

I From i lie Pittsburg I'.wi, March 12 J IXClttXERT IN PITlSBUEG On Saturday morning.II <n. Lynn Boyd, of Kentucky, late Speaker of the House, arrived in our city in the one o'clock, a. m. train, on his way home, lit: was ac companied by his family and a negro woman who acted as nurse to his chil dren. The fact that thin latter person was a slave, became quickly known to the colored servants of the hotel?the St. ChBrles?at which the party stopped, on their way to the steamboat in which they designed taking passage to Louisville, and while they were at breakfast a large party surrounded them, avowing their intention of carrying oft the woman: hut a number of persons interfering, they were compelled to leave the room with out effecting their purpose. Mr. Boyd, in order not to create any difficulty, thru determined to go immediately on board ihe steamboat, although it had been his intention to remain several days in the city. On their way to the river, they were followed by a crowd of exasperated ne groes, who pressed closely upon the par ty, and made several futile attempts to effect a rescue. Arrived at the steamer? the Pennsylvania?the crowd made a combined effort to rush on board and se cure their prey, which no doubt they would have accomplished, had not one of the officers of the b&at?Captain Klein feltcr, we believe?stood upon the gang way with a revolver ih his hand, and threatened to shoot the first negro who passed over. This determined conduct intimidated the mob, and Mr. Boyd's party were all safely 4 housed'' in the ladies' cabin. The boat remained at tl e wharf until her usual time of starting without any other molestation being of fered. Our city is destined to become famous ?or at least notorious. Two slave riots within as many days in getting ahead tolerably fast. The negroes, through their secret oath-bound society, appear determined to bid defiance to all author ity, and usurp the right to carry off any of their Allow bc?ngs they choose, with out consulting whether it is agreeable to the parties interested or not. Twice have they abducted free negroes, and in this case forcibly attempted to run oil' with a person who repeatedly exptcssed her pr** fcrcnco to be left with her master aud mistress. If this procedure is to be al lowed, it will not be safe for a coloreei person to travel through here, unless hi is furnished with a certificate from one of the Directors of ihe U. G. Kailroad ? such as was given the other da}T, by Dr. M. R. Dclany, to the blaymaker wo man?slating that she has privilege to travel. Tub Extent of Textile Fabrics.? The vegetable world furnishes the roost of our clothing. The annual produce of thread is in its lineal extent almost in conceivable. One billion four hundred and eighty-one millions of poundw were worked up into it in 1832. At the Lon don exhibition one manufacturer fi nished samples of one pound of cotton spua into 1>00 hanks of 840 yards each, making nearly 430 miles. Another linn exhibited 4.200 hanks of the same cum ber of yaids each, making 2,000 miles from a single pound of cotton! If we therefore multiply the above amoun*. only by 430. the leugth of thread that a Lin gle crop of cotton could make, it would be over iix hundred billions of miles, e r sufficient for a web of stout calico, a yard wide, and containing 85 threads to the inch, that would be more than enough to reach from us to the sun. And yet all this is fioui cotton al ne. Hemp and flax in some measure rival it; and of it were raised in the United States in 1850, not less than 1,^0,000,000 of pounds. But a few years would be re quired for our looms to fulfil an order for double beltiug sufficiently Iong to con nect the sun with each of the planets, in the way motion is communicated from the large drum of a factory to a number of smaller ones. We inclose our bodies in artificial cocoons In winter a lady is en wrapped in a hundred miles of thread; she throws over her shoulders from thir ty to fifty in a shawl. A gentleman winds between three aud four miles around his neck, and uses four more in a pocket handkerchief. At night he throws off his clothing and buries him self like a larva, in four or five hundred miles cf convolved lilamcnts.?[ The World a Workshop. Jokes ok toe Carnival.?A letter from Paris under date of February 11th, says that as the end of the Carnival draws nigh, its lively attractions become of the festival had given rise to all sorts ofoutcf the way diversions. Of course people of a facetious spirit and fond of practical jokes, hadeaperiy availed them selves of the occasion to give vent to their roguish inspirations, and thus to amuse themselves al the expense of every body else. The faubourg St. Germainc has been the sceae of a poor joke of this sort, vt liich made no less than three hundred dupes, and caused its author or originators the trouble of writing an equal number of invitations, addres.ced to the higher or ders of society, begging them to honor il. le Marquis and Madame la Marquise d'A. by being present and assisting at a ball to bj given by them at their hotel; though, alas, there was no ball, but only a mystification. The Marquis and Mar chioness had invited nobody, and passed the evening elsewhere. Alt were taken in. At ten o'clock a double file of car riages majestically drew up, and the ar itv&ls received the compliment of condo lence from tho door keeper, who made known to them that they had been im posed upon. The disappointment, bad humor, anl chagrin oi aU parties may be imagined. more and more The privileges Dames and cavaliers, all in full dress, and fall of confidence in Lh? pleasure which was promised them, all to be thus victimized bj some nameless rascal?it was quite unendurable. And worst ef all, the joke was a double wrong?detec table in itself, it had not even the merit of novelty. It had often been tried, and will still, no djubt, cause attempts at repetition. ADULTERATED TEA A London pape.\ giving an account of the minner in which tea is adulterated after its importation, furnishes the fol lowing information of ihe manner in which the trade is carried on in China: " 1 he dishonest? of adulterating tea is not, howev< r, confined to this country. It often unde: goes a strange process of transmutation before it reaches the hsnds of the English dealer. The Chinese are not at all behind us in practices of dis honesty, and the genuine and fraudulent tea trades flourish in China with almost equal vigor. The people of that coun try have long enjojed an unenviable pre eminence for thtir success in ingenious deceptions. Recent travelers have con firmed the well-known testimony of Sir rancis Davis, in reference to the exten sive exportation of adulterated by the natives, lie speak* of a regular manufactory lor the production of spu rious green Uas, which, with the most daring effrontery, has been erected ex ctl> opposite the European factories at Canton, on the other side of the nver. lie naturally found Fome difficulty .n procuring admission within its prtcincts, but his object was at length effected through the influence of a llong Kong merchant, and the scene is thus de scribed : " In the first placc, large quantities of black tea, which had been damaged bv the floods of the previous autumn, were seen drying in baskets, placed over hot pans of charcoal. The dried leaves were than transferred in portions of a few pounds each, to a Dumber of ca*t iron pans, are placed over furnaces. bey were next stirred rapidly round with the hand by a workmai, who had previously added a small quantity of tur meric. which imparted a yellowish tinge to the mixture. In order to convert this into a green hue, the color ao much de ired, some lumpr of prussian blue and gypsuin were added in such pioportiona as reduCj-d the dark blue to a light shade, of winch a small teaspoonful was added to the yellowish leaves. These were then stirred before the tire until the tea had taken the 4 fine bloom' color of hy son, with very much the same scent, i he transformed leaves were then picked, sifted, chopped small, and supplied to the merchants as cxcelleut young hyson." ParER Makiku.?The following facte connected with the business of paper ma king are d' rived from the 44 Tear Book of Facts for 1855": 44 There are in the United States 750 paper nulls in actual operation, having 3O00 engines, and producing in the year -70,000,000 pouuds of paper, which is worth at 10 cents per pound 827,000,000. lo produce this quantity of paper 405, 000,000 pounds of rags are required, 14 poundi of rags being necessary to make I pound of paper. The value of ihe^e r?>gs I cents per pound, is $16,200 000. 1 he cost of labor is 1J cents upon each pound cf paper manufactured, and is, then fore, $3,375,000. The cost of paptr aud rigs united is $1'J 575,000. The cost of manufacturing aside from labor an J rags, is $4 050,000, which makes the total cost $23,625,000, of manufac turing paper werth $27,000 000. We import rags for this manufacture from 26 different countries, and the amount in 1853 was 25,766 pounds, worth $982 837. Italy is the greatest source of supply, be ing more than one fifty of the whole amount, but the supply has been grad ually falling off every year. From Eng land we iciported 2,606,005 pounds in 1851. The cost of imported rags has been as fullows: ?1850, 3 61-100 cents; 1851, 3 46 000; 1852. 3 43-100 cents; 1853, 2 46-000 cents. Ihe consump tion of paper in the United States is equal to that of England and France to gether. Tied Down at IJoxe.?A friend of ours, living not far from Pontise, was one day importuned by his wile to take her to a riae. The gentleman being a man cf business, pleaded his engagements, when the wife replied with the old story, that she must be "tied down at home." The husband replied that if any person would furnish him with clothing to wear and enough to cat and drink, he would be willing to be tied down at home. A few days afler, the gentleman came home earlier than utual, and being fa tigued, lay dow on the sofa and fell into a sound sleep, llis wife took cords and slyly tied his hands together, served hia feet in the same way, and made him fast to the sofa. She then seta table with all that the house afforded, and placed an extra suit within his reach. This dene, she started to pay a friend a visit. Upon her returning late in the evening, she found her subject of domestic discipline in the same position, exoept be was wit's awake and very mad. 44 W hat on earth does all this mean?" said he, "Nothing,'' quietly remarked his wife, "except the consummation of your earth ly wishes?enough to eat, drink and wear, and to be tied down at home.''
