Dr. C. M. Jackson, Philadelphia?Dear Sir: 1 have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst furm, for the last five years. Such was my condition for twelve months that the physicians and all who saw me said I must die. While in this condition, i was carried to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but wa? net benefited by any water to which I was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at Rutlierfor.iton, a small villac 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 get some medicine for my child and myself. There w? re several of the village physicians in the store, nnd one of them seemed to take some interest in my case. and, after asking me some questions, said he had been a dye peptic, and had been groatly bene fitted by the use of " Dr. Hoofland's German Bit ters," prepared by ycu, and be insisted that I would try the Biturs He also called the next dar at iny j room, and in-i.-ted so much that I would try them that 1 asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, j .tnd I commenced taking it as directed, and I do say I 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 prescription and medicine, (be a dyspep tic,) and i gave him nearly all the Bitters 1 had left, which effected much good ui 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 get any more for him or myself since; will you, there fore, please ship me a dozen or more as soon as po? sihSe. Respectfully yours, W.SMITH. D. R- HOOKER, Roger's Store, Wake Co., N. C., October 24.1853, says:??'

FROM COffSTAHTlNOPLE A friend has famished us with the fol lowing extract from a letter dated Con stantinople, February 5, to a gentleman in this city : The war drags its slow length alone. here 13 M hseIe obJe?t of ?onrersation here. Much anxiety is felt among the friends of the allies for the safety of their troops in the Crimea. The daily ac counts represent them as being in the most wretched and deplorable condition. The English arc Jaifferin* much more than the trench, and the news that reached here yesterday states that they had abandoned their trenches to the latter. The army had dwindled down to some / 000 men ; and scarcely one half of that number capable of doing active duty. I p to this time, the greater por tion of the troops have been and still are living under canvass. The weather in the Crimea is of the most trying description* Constant rains, snows and frosts. The road from Ba laklava. the port to which the English provisions are consigned, long since has become so impassable, that it is found impossiWe to use it fthe consequence is. that the rations are not regularly received or served out to the soldiers, and they sulfcr from the want of food. The cold weather and the want of forage has been so destructive to the horses, that the commissary department are perfectly helpless. Fuel is to scarce that thero is not enough furnished the men to cook their food, much less to warm themselves I was told by a physician who recently returned from Sebastopol, that owing to the soldiery being obliged to live upon salt provisions, from the cold and damp that there was scarcely one free from scorbutic symptoms. The dyscnterv pro iuced by that disease had broken out and was daily carrying off hundreds. In audition to this, you can readily, as a physician, imagine what a host of other maladies these privations and exposure has engendered in the camp. If the hos pitals here, as I know from my own ob servations, where they possess every means requisite to render them efficient are in the most wretchcd and disorgan ized state, what must be the condition of those temporary places they call hospi tals in the Crimea. I am told that the patients there are obliged to be placed upon the damp ground with uoihiug around them save a blanket, and that the surgeons are without the proper medi cines. Could a state more wretched or miserable be easily conceived ? The sick and wounded are daily arriving here in azures, iuajiy suDerlug /Turn Hie tflcuu-, of the recent severe frosts. The hospitals here are filled to over flowing, and new ones are daily made. There are now over 2S.000 sick and wounded in them. This climate has a most deleterious effect upon wounds preventing them from healing I am sure, from what I learn, that of the im irense number that were wounded at Ajma, Inkermann, Balaklava, and in the trenches, not more than one tenth of them have survived. From what I have seen of the English surgeons, I must confess that I should not like to be a pa tient of theirs ; they cannot be compared, as a body, to those of the French. Their pay, I suppose, prevents men of any Aility applying for the army. A voung English doctor, who drifted out here in search ol employment, told me that after the immense number of wounded came down from Inkermann, rendering an ad dition to the small medical staff then here absolutely necessary, he thought it would be an excellent opportunity to obtain a desirable situation. lie crossed over to Scutari, called upon the chief sur geon of the hospitals, stated his case, and showed his diploma, and was told that he could come, have a bed in the building, and for his services would re ceive sevm shillings a day?scarcely more than a common laborer in America gets. Of course, he declined the proffer. The French hospitals, in all their ap pointments, far excel these of the Eng lish. Nor do I believe the mortality, in proportion to the number of patients, to be as great as the latter. 1 assure you, the most devoted Philo Russian could not desire the situation of the allied armies in the Crimea to be worse. The two most severe and inclem ent months of the year have yet to come. VVhen the spring opens, unless daily re inforced, the whole army will be reduced to but a small squad. This, without being killed by the enemy. I hazard the Crimean expedition as one of the greatest militarv follies and blun ders of this or any other age. Indeed, when one calmly reflects upon the whole opeiation, and sees the generals of two of the most powerful and civilized nations of the world?two that have been and are qpnstantly usurping for themselves all military science, embarking at such a season, and with such an army to cap ture perhaps the most strongly fortified city in the world, defended by as brave and obstinate soldiers as any in Europe; one cannot but say with the old proverb, 44 whom the gods wish to destroy they first make mad." C. S. Collecting Monby under False Pke trnces ?Two Smart Women.?Mr. of the Sixth Avenue, complains that two females have been for months past col lecting money professedly for charitable purposes, in this city, under false repre sentations, wholly for their own benefit. One of them is called Mrs. , and to give her credit with the benevolent she is called a "Tract Distributor." She is said to be about SO years of age, of middle size, light complexion, black eyes and hair. Her general appearance is genteel, intelligent, and prepossessing. rl he other lady is about 40 jcara of age, rather tall and graceful, dark com plexion, and dark blown hair, black eyes, land usually wears* faafoonable straw bonnet and blue veil. The remainder of her dress is changeable; sometimes black silk, and sometimes brown figured do., and brown cloth figured shawl, or what ever be.11 masks her perfonnmces. She calls herself by several aliases, as occa sion and circumstances require. She professes to have a* good an educati >n as any man in America?that she can speak nine different languages, and teach four correctly. Is mtima dy acquainted with many of tbe sovereigns, princes, princess es dukes, lords and ladies of Europe, and the West Indies, with the presidents, heads of departments, and ladies of now;, Ac. in this country, She is extremely pious on all suitable occasions?win be extremely ill?in deep affliction. or in a dying condition in a moment, if necessa ry, to gain sympathy. Her rosidenoe iv at present unknown. She goes out but little by daylight, often crossing the street or otherwise changing her course, so that it is very difficult to find her hiding plac. These worthies collect whatever they can themselves without givii.g true ref erences and induce as many other.* as pos^.ble to beg lor the destitute pnd af flicted. while they themselves generously receive whatever is collected aud ititcwl to the distribution of xt gra'ns.'

BL*CK-HEl\ AND SKm litOM lows OX TBS CAEs Gbebxsbobo', (Ia., March 18.?There was a disgraceful mob here on Saturday, the 17th. I was attracted by a c.owd on the principal street. On drawing near, I flaw a young man of about twen ty-two years standing in the inlist of the crowd. They were asking his name, which it appears he declined giving. I inquired of a bystander what th? exoite ment was. He informed me tbe young man " had declared him&elf an abolition i-t, and it net agreeing with the' -cn<i reents of the people, they had a notiuu to m>b him." II? was told to leave the place, but lie declined. Some exclaimed, ?4 Hang him!" " Tar and feather him!" 44 Kide hiia on a rail!" Others, more moderate, proposed to send hiui frjni town. All were in favor of his leaviug : and those that were the least cxcited ad vised him to leave. He was asked where he was from ; he aiswered " Maasaohu setts." i saw him leave the crowd and go to the hotel. Soon he came out and walked past the crowd, going in the direc'ion of the depot. The leader of the mob, wno I was told was the sheriff, swore he should not leave the town, and went in cha-e ci' him, followed by several others. Not knowing what they might do, I concluded to follow, and, if 1 could be of any ser vice, to tender it, he appearing to be a stranger here as well as myself Un uiy way I passed some young ladies?stu dents of tho Female College. Thsy in quired what was the matter. 1 answered, " They say there is an abolitionist in town.'' Some exclaimed, "Tar and feather him !"?others, 44 Ride him on a rail !" I passed on, and found him in tront of a minister's dwelling. As soon as I arrived, I told the leader I wished to speak with him a moment. He said, 44 If it was about that man, he would uot hear it." At this point the man broke and they after him. He jumped a picket fence, and entered a dwelling house, went up stairs, and hid himself in a wardrobe. They searched the house a long time be fore he was found. I tried to reason w:Lh seme, persuading them to give it up aud let him go. But they were so cxcited I did not know but they would lynch ma if I said much more 1 went up town, and soon th ? mob came back, making all sorts of hideous noises, with their prisoner on a rail, car ried by negroes. The Sheriff drew his pistol, and wou'd have shot him if we ll ad not interfered. Alter getting in town, they had a negro to black the pris oner's face. Some said "put in viu?.g*r and nitrite of silver," etc. After brack ing him, be was sold at auction. H*w much he brought, I can't tell, as I did not hear the bids, but hrard them eying him off while I was at tea. The u.e>l? took him to a drinking-saloon, and had the niggers hugging and kissing :um. He bore it like a martyr. They said they would kill him if he resisted. A search warrant was procured to search his bagpage, to see if he had any Aboli tion documents, and all that was found any way suspicious were three copics of the New York Tribune. While at the drinking saioou; uiey in dulged quite freely, and some got m^re than they could bear. The second in command of this mob was a factory hand, and, I should judge, a very poor one, who never owned a ue gro, and more, never will, if one may judge from bis ragged appearance The cars left at 11 o'clock in the evenirg:, and he was put on board and sent to Au-^ gusta. While at tho depot, the Sheriff and Marshal had a fight, and ihus eade ? this mob of Greensboro*. MaRTiN*. Lawrence did not jar it.?The mem orable and patriotic cry of Comtnodor* Lawrence, 44 Don't give up the ship !" it is said, is a bogus speech.
