C. M. Jacksojc, Philadelphia?Dear Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst form, for the last five years. Such was my condition for twelve months that the physicians and all who saw me said 1 must die. While in this condition^ I was carried to the watering places in Virginia, 1 ennes see and North Carolina, but was not benefited by any water to which I was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at Rutherford ton, a small village in North Carolina, te try the effect of] some Chalybeate water in that place. About the last of the week, I went into a drug store to gel some medicine for my child and myseif. There were several of the village physicians in the store, and one oi them seemed to take fome interest in my case and, after asking me some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic, and iiad been greatly bene- j fitted by the use of "Dr. Iloofl nd's German Bit ters," prepared by yru, and he insisted that I would try ttavBiUvr* He also called the next day at my room, and insisted bo much that I would try them that I asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, | and I commenced taking it as directed, and I do say 1 was more benefitted by it than all the water and medicine I had ever taken. After reaching home one of my neighbors came to | me for a presciipuon and medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) am! i nave him nearly all the Bitters I had left, which ?*fleeted much good in his case. He has often called on me for more of the same k nd of medi cine, saying he was more benefitted by it than any other he had taken, but I have not been able to gel any more for him or myself since-; will you, there fore, please ship me a doten or more as soon as pos sible. Re?pectful.'y yours, W.SMITH. D. R. HOOKER, Roger's Store, Wake ?>>., N. C.,, OMober 24.1853, says:?'?

Jackson?Dear Sir: Allow ine to ex press to you my sincere thanks for your discovery I of a medicine which, to say the lea*tof it, has ef- | feeied a cure that all other medicines, that I have taken, have entirely failed to do. "HooflandV Ger mau Bitters" have cured n?e of the most stnbho>n and aggravated case of the i?ii.ks that, perhaps, ever fell tothe lot of man My case is uot a ttran?er in tins community, as I am well knowT in this and the surrounding counties and can truly sav that my re covery ha* abounded all my friends and relations, j a-< I had tried everything recommended, and nothing did me any good until 1 was prevailed upou t?fry the Bitters.

Daniel Meredith, in a soiled coat that might have been claret-colored once, was desired to plead to the charge of intoxi cation. ''Indeed, sir," said Daniel, "lam over whelmed?struck all of a heap, as the saying is. \ou see this crimson suffu sion on my countenance?(Mr. Mere dith s countenance was suffused, but whether with ingenuous shame or old Holland, we can't pretend to say,) that suffusion, sir, tells more plainly, than words can speak, the distress and an guish of mind I feel at being arraigned for the low, execrable, detestable vice of [ drunkenness. Sir, my ears tinge with ; the word; I feel my cheeks scorched by I the damnable consciousness of my of fence. Oh ! in pity allow me to hide my face fiom this respectable assembly, and especially from your Honor, who, i being a perfect model of sobriety your | self, cannot be supposed to have any ! sympathy for the weakness of others. ? I My modesty, sir, is shocked above all' healing remedies. Where, where shall I hide?" continued Mr. M., glancing wildly over the floor of the office, as if in search of an auger hole. "I am glad to see you so sensible of your fault," said his Honor, "aid I have strong hopos that a man who experi ences such a humiliating sense of his guilt, will not be likely to err again in the same manner. You are discharged Mr. Meredith; go and take better care of yoprsclf." "That was spoken like your Honor. Yours is the most exalted kind of virtue that can overlook the missteps of an erring, frail fellow creature. Sir, there is one thing more, if I might dare to speak." "Go on, Mr. Meredith," said the May or, kindly. "Oh, what a model of goodness !" ex claimed Mr. M., with uplifted eyes and hands. "Your Honor encourages me to beg the loan of a quarter, I'll pay it faith fully, sir, as soon as I am brought up again." "This is modesty with a vengeance," said the Mayor, with justifiable indigna tion. "Begone, you imposter ! and take [ care that you are not brought up again, or your sham modesty shall not save vou from the extreme penalties of the vagrant act,' "Heavens ! who would have thought that asking for the loan of a quarter could make such an alteration V' said Daniel, meekly, as he retired from the tribunal.?Sunday Mercury. Sedcction Case. ? An exceedingly pretty little girl, apparently but 16 years of age, wearing a most bewitching hood, appeared at the Mayor's office yesterday morning, and said she wished to make complaint against her lover's mother for abusing her. From her state ment, it seems that she is a native of Auburn, in this State, where some 14 months since she became acquainted with the young man, (a moulder by trade) whom she calls her lover. They met several times at balls and parties, where they became acquainted?and he, professing great affection for her, pro posed marriage, and after a consultation with her mother, she accepted the offer. The day was fixed on for the perform ance of the nuptial ceremony. All things went on smoothly for several weeks, during which time he succeeded in se ducing her, which becoming known to the girl s mother, she ordered tbe young man never again to enter her roof. This quite exasperated the girl, who, in turn, declared that if her future husband could no more enter her house, she would leave and find a boarding place where he could visit her. The mother only became the more angry at this declaration on her part, and bade her do so if she wished. The young man was made acquainted with the whole affair at the earliest op portunity, and he, like a true Chevalier, offered to find a boarding place for her and himself in the house in which he was then stopping. This arrangement was agreed upon, and the young lady, true to her word, left her mother's roof in anger, perhaps for ever, without a parting adieu, or word. Some days sub sequently, however, the girl's mother traced her to her new quarters and tried to prevail upon her to desist from her course and return to her parental roof, but all to no purpose. The authorities were next appealed to to compel her to rettxrn, bat her lover getting wind of the affair immediately proposed that she should accompany him to New York, where (Ley would be uuited in the holy ? bonds of matrimony. She consented, and started the following day with him ??Q ErriviDg here, he took her to the residence of his mother, a very respectable widow lady, and introduced her to his mother and sisters as his wife. They received her kindly, and all things passed off pleasantly for gome weeks, during which time she frequently impor tuned him to perform has promise to her. He put her off with frivolous ex cuses .until at last the secret leaked out that they were not married as represented by the son. Upon the mother ascertaining this fact she became highly indignant, and very properly ordered her to leave the house. This the son refused to let her do, de claring that so long as he had any right under his mother's roof, his doxy should also remain. The mother then impor tuned him to make her his lawful wife, ihis he also refused, alleging, as an ex cuse, that he did not believe in tying himself to a woman's aprong strings. The mother, unable to help herself, (as she was solely dependent upon her son for support,) was obliged to submit Consequently they have lived together as best they could, up to this time. The girl, who is now cncienie, accuses the mother with frequently abusing and mal treating her, and asks the Mayor to in terpose in her behalf, and compel the woman from ill using her : also to oblige her lover to support her, or pay her board in a private family, so that she may leave her tormentor?N. Y. Express. A CAUTIOUS WirHISS The Cincinnati Enquirer tells the fol lowing story of a man named .fames Mc Ewing who had charged his friend, John Holland, with stealing a pistol: James, when called upon the stand, however, exhibited the bump of cau tiousness in an eminent degre. 44 You see," said he, addressing the Court in an extremely confidential manner, " Hoi land slept with me a short time ago. No (correcting himself) I won't say slept for I am on my oath, and I won't be cer tain whether he slept or lay awake ; but, at all events, he was thar, right in my bed, art! I do th;nk I hearn him snore ; but that I can't swear to, as it might bt only hard breathin'. Well, at all events next mornin', John, says he, 4 Jim, have vou got anythin' to drink ?' 4 in coorse I have, says I, 41 allers keeps itgo, with that 1 hands him the bottle, and he takes a snorter, and then I takes a snif ter myself, and then I up with my pil low, and sure enough the pistol had gone ofl. 4 John, says I,* old fellow, you've got my pistol.' 4No, I ain't,' says he. NV ell, says I, 41II go for a p'liceman, and then we'll see but*jest as 1 got to the door, 4 Hold on,' savs he, 'here's your pistel, Jim, I was orniy in fun,' and he outs with the weei*>n from a side pocket." 44You're both carpenters?" interro gated the Court. 44 Why, yes," responded James, 44 we are brother chips." 41 How much was that pistol worth ?" said the Judge. 44 Ah! now you've got me," returned J;;incs, with a knowing lee ; 441 ain t a gun-maker, and I'm on my oath.'' 44 What did it cost you ?" demanded the Judge, waxing rather stern. 44 Now you talk," replied the witness; 441 paid a dollar for it." 44 Now tell me," said the Court,44 did you not think it was a joke, or did you believe he meant to steal it ?" 44 Now, my dear follow," retorted James, executing at the same time a la pid succession of winks and nods, 44 tkat is popping the question a little too hard. You see I'm on oath' and? 44 Sit down, sir!" wrathfully thund ered the Court; 44 this appears to be a prosecution got up for the sake of perse cution. John Holland you are dis charged. " And John, who is a burly, good-na tured looking fellow, marched trium phantly into the street, where he had taken about six strides when he was tapped on the back by his old crony, Jim, who congratulated him upon his escape, hauled out tfu bottle, which, with sparkling eyes, James clutched, and holding it to his mouth, was, when we last saw him, intently gazing upward. Order of 44 Spotters."?Startling Developments.?The case of Jame6 Par malee, George Judson, and others, on trial or under sentence in the County Court, now in session, demands some thing more than a passing notice; that the youth of our city may by a timely warning, be saved from so disastrous a fate as has come .'upon them. The two named, are respectively 19 and 20 years of age, and with four others had united in a secret society, for the purpose of theft, burglary, highway robbery, &c. They had a constitution and by-laws for their guidance, which they had signed, together with a pledge to screen each other from detection, and helpeaeh other out of difficulties. The took the nafte of 44spotter8," hired a room for their meet ings, and provided themselves with dark lanterns, slang shot, two clubs 18 inches long, painted black, the ends being load ed with lead, also a pistol. They selec ted Parmalee as their leader?and, by j their articles of association could not *d~ mit a member, or enter upon any scheme without his knowledge and concurrence;' and whatever ho directed they were bound to follow. Judson was the unscrupulous abetter of his leader. He is a native of a sister city, where has been connected with a gang for similar purposes. His conduct has been such as t# cause his ex pulsion from his father's house?in re venge for which be broke into and robbed it of $300, for which he was arrested and tried, and esaaped by hiring witaess e3 to swear him otL He then came and took up bis resideuce in this city, and assisted in forming, if he did not origi uafe, this plot for living by preying upon the community, ihe other four were induced to join tbein, from reading the glowing descriptions of such kind of life, as set forth in the trash called "Yellow covtred literature." Parmalee and Jud son on two difierent evenings. have beeu out into Hillhou8e Avenue, with the in tention of committing highway robbery, and did not do it, because thev did not meet any whom they supposed had mon ey enough to pay for the risk. Yet they hare done enough in the burnings, bur glaries and thefts which they have com mitted to show what they were capable of doing, had they not been providentially arrested.?New Haven Register. A KICH JOKX Or, A Keow Vothiag in Search of Lodgicgt. Not many days ago a certain married gentleman arrived at one of the hotel* of Greenfield in the evening. Having regis tered his name, it was soon noised about that an Hon "M. C. ' was in town, and his brother Know Nothings, cnioying themselves at a feast in a neighboring hotel, invited him to join them- lie sat late at the table, and on returning to his own hotel all was quiet. Silently feeling his way to his own room, he found it locked, and an occupant on the inside. 44 Hallo, there?what have you got my room tor?" ' - It's mine sir/' says inside. "No, sir, it is not, and you must give it up." 44 Shan't do any such thmg." The Hon. M. I', started for the land lord, aroused him frcm his dreams, and related his wrongs. " Sir," says the landlord to inside, ' Mr. B. took this room, and you must give it up." 44 Well, I'm Mr. B.," says inside. The M. 0. was astonished to lind a namesake in his room. Both being en tire strangers to the landlord, the latter was perfectly non-plussed. not knowing to whom the room belonged. 441 can couvince you," says M- C., pulling from his pocket several letters, addressed to Hon. A. B me, M. C. Landlord says sternly to inside, -4 you must give up the room now." 44 Shan't do it, for I'm the B me who took this room, and have a pol'ticM speech to prepare for a New Hampshire meeting to-morrow. Don't disturb me," was the reply. 44 Well, I can convince you," said the Honorable, very much excited: and he commenced unbuttoning to disclose the name marked on his linen. 4t ?ee there, read that!" The landlord on bendad knee, the light in close proximity, read to his and the "Honorable" gentleman's great astonish ment, 44A. Murzy.'* The outsider found lodgings elsewhere. He had roomed the night preceding with another gentleman, and they had unwit tingly exchanged shirts.?Ho yoke Mir. MOVEMENTS OF OCEAN STEAMERS. Xc.w.e. Leave Por Daw.
