Iphia?Dear S-r: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f rm, for th* last Ave years. Such was my condition for twelve months that the physicians and all who saw me said I must die. YVhiie in this condition. I was carrird to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but wai nat benefited by any water to which I was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at Rutherfor.!ton, a ?ma!l village in North Carolina, to try the effect of sosoe Chalybeate water in that p'.ace. About the last of the week, I went into a drug store to get some medicine for my child and myseif. There were several of the vi'Mse physicians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my ease and, after asking me some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the use of 44 Dr. Hoof) nd's German Bit ters," prepared by yu, and he rented that I would try the Bittwrs He also called the next day at my room, and insisted so much that I would try them t^at I asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, and I commenced taking it as directed, and ( do say I was more benefitted by it than all the water and medicine ! had ever taken. Af ter reaching home one of my neighbors came to me fi r a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) an 1 i save him nearly all the Bitters I had left, which effected much good in hid case. He has often railed on me for more of the canif k nd of medi cine, (trying 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 yorj, there lore, please ship me a dozen or more as soon as poe- j feible.

"Hoofland's Ger man Bitters" have ?ured me of tha most stubbotn an 1 aggravated case of the piles that, perhaps, ever I fell u? the lot of man.

C?b?ge Crimp Skite anrl^Rj'd""1 "'ghUy comP*"'OM oi ?, H ?iD' or' 48 4he " B!<xxU" had them. Slather and Stitch. Like all new apprentices, transferred from an ac tive lile to a sedeutary occupation, he grew very restless, and wa? always ex tremely glad when the clock struck six. He observed that Slather and Stitch were very Punctual in quitting at the hour named. If they had stuck the needle in the seam when the first stroke of the clock was given, they would not pull it through afterwards for the world. This excessive punctuality Jerry learned to [ imitate. Somehow?the exact process Jerry could not have explained?Slather and Stitch had contrived to win upon gantry friend's esteem, and their deeds ?f daring rowdvism, and coarse rollicking fun, became his especial adtni laughed tfll his sides ached at their broad jokes, some of which were painfully practical, such as ornamenting Crimp s coat-tail with bent pins in tick lish positions, ironing little Master Crimp s pantaloons on his legs with a heated goose, and placing tape across tbe back door for folks to stumble over Against Mrs. Crimp, Skite and Bladen cherished a most unrelenting enmity, on account of the stinting of their fara, as they thought, and they kept up the war fare with an extensive invention of little annoyances, which Jerry learned to con sider wonderfully funny. Jerry had now become a nightly visi tor to the Spanner Ilose Ilouse. and was rapidly learning how to be a full-blooded " Bloody. After the first week's expe nence he could smoke ; after the sccond, take a quid of " the weed " with the most accomplished of the chewing art. Bv dint of profiting by the advice of Slather and Stitch, he had effected such altera tions in his costume as brought it nearer to. that of his companions, and he now rejoiced in a flaring red neckerchief! The little Bible his mother had placed in his bundle was retained, but never opened, for Skitc and Bladen had laughed our impressible friend out of the practice of reading the book. One night there was a general "blow out at tbe hose house, on the occasion of one of the "Bloodies" reaching the age of-1 years, and thus becoming his own master. The blow-out consisted ir drinking a great deal of punch and eat ing a few oysters. Skite, Bladen, and Jerry h?d been invited to be present I hey went, of course, for all " the boys'' were to be there. Jerry had never seen the like before. The hose house was rudely decoratcd with some evergreens and a few flowers were placed upon the " carriage." Bully had his fiddle, and when our party arrived, was already rattling off a reel, which four men, half drunk, were doing in the strongest style, threatening very 6erious detriment to the floor. | A table was set in the rear of the hose house, on which the eatables, oysters cooked in various styles, were invitingly arranged. As soon as our friends enter ed they received a cordially drunken welcome from the giver of the " blow out," a " Bloody" rejoicing in the norn de plume of " Buck," and the longest soap-lock in the crowd?and an immedi ate invitation to take a drink. "A drink of what," thought Jerry, but he could not muster courage enough to keeD be hind on such an occasion! Buckplaced a tumbler about half full of brandy be fore the new " Bloody," and the >ame quantity before his fellow-apprentices. A health to the new man being proposed Skite and Bladen drained their glasses at one swig. Jerry Uok a mouthful and smacked his lips?trying to consider it good. But he had to confess that the taste was extremely disagreeable, and it gave him such a burning in the throat that caused him to think the liquor t>ad been scalded. However, a nudge from Skite, and a " What are you about ?" from Buck, accompanied by a meaning look from Bladen, that said, " You*must drink, caused Jerry to raise his giass and drain it to the bottom. The first glass I How like a stream of fire it coursed through the veins of the doomed youth! How like a spirit of madness it seemed to kindle His brain! The first glass! Oh! that the scenes of after years could be vividly pictured in the bottom of that glass ! How many a soul, naturally good and gifted, would thenceforth avoid the path that leads in evitably to ruin and desolation ! But Jerry saw nothing but the sparkling liquor, and, now that it was down, be gan to feel an ecstacy he had never be fore known?a fatal joy. The ringing music of Bully's fiddle set his feet to tripping, and soon he was one in a "straight four.' Then they stopped, and the whole party took a drink. Jerry felt still more ecstatic. He talked to everybody, about all sorts of things, and in all sorts of styles, except a sober one ; he cordially agreed with everybody, and this cordial agreement got him into a difficulty. Bully and Bladen got to talk ing about the last tight with tbe ,4 Bull dogs." Bladen contended that a certain incident had oocurnd, which Bully de nied. Jerry came up in a drunken style, and, as he alternately sided with both the disputants, Bully became very sav age, and told hija to " dry up," which was classical among the "Bloodies" for " keep silence." Jerry wouldn't keep silent, because, to tell the truth, lie couldn't?the rum would talk; where upon Bully smacked him across the face. Jerry returned the blow with inte-est/ being full of Dutch courage; 8ktte ani Bladen stepped in, and others followed until there was a general row. At 1 ngth the combatant* were ?eparated? when it was found that Jerry had received sev eial cuts in the face and a black eye ; \ ut that Bully had reoeived almost severe a punishment. This excited the aston ishment of the crowd of " Bloodies/' and they concluded that Jerry was " a good man.1! The row and its results had somewhat sobered our young friend, and he now began to hare a dim p rception of what had been going on. Ski'caml Bladen washed his face at a neighboring pump, and applied a raw oyster to his eye. They also patted him on the bark, and assured him that he had proved him ? self ??oneof the boyo." Another drink, and the eating of a lew oysters concluded this spree, as far as our party was ooncerned, and all of them returned home, in a tolerably muddled condition. An entrance into the house was effected by tfce well-known back window?Jerry requiring assistance to eet in. It was agreed by Skitcs anl Bladen, that Crimp should be told, that while walkiag along the street, Jerry had been knocked down by a horse, and our poorcountry friend promised loacquicsce. A drink, a tight, and a lie on one night. Surely, (Jerry Pratt was making rapid progress in the Hose House School. (TOR TUB star. GOOD ADVICE Ma. Wallach: I will thank you to print in the Star the following note ard maxims, which, as the note will explti-i. I prepared about two years and a half ago, and gave to my son H as a "pocket-piece." \ wish this printed,' because he has carried it in his pocket until it is nearly worn out, and his mother handed it to me with a request that I would re-write it. Moreover, if presented in your paper, perchauce soma other youngster may be disposed to act upon the suggestion, and by putting these maxims in his wallet for occasion al perusal denve lasting benefit there from Yours, <fcc , Hokacs. Washington, Aug. 9,1852. Deae H : I cut the following slip from a newspaper, and hare pasted it upon this sheet for you. The maxims it contains are all good, and should you read them over 4<at least once a week," 1 am sure you will never have cause to regret it. This slip was found in the pocket of Stephen Allen, a good old man, who was last by the late burning of t!?e steamer ''Henry Clay," on the Hudson river. Very affectionately. "Keep good company or none. Never be idle. If your hands cannot be use fully employed, attend to the cultivatica of your mind, Always speak the truth. Make few promises. Live up to your en gagements. Keep your own secrets if you have any. When you speak to a person look him in the face. Good com pany and good conversation arc the very sinews of virtue. Good character is above all things else. Yoar character cannot be essentially injured except by your own acts. If any one speak ill of you, let your life be so that none will believe him. Drink no kind of intoxi cating liquors. Ever live (misfortunes excepted) within your income. W hen you retire to bed, ihink over what you have been doing during the day. Make no haste to be rich if you would prosper. Small and steady gains give compettncy with tranquility of mind. Never play at any kind of game of chancs. Av?;d temptation; through fear you may n t withstand it. Earn money before you spend it. Never run into debt unless you see a way to get out again. Never bor row if you can possibly avoid it. Do not marry until you are able to support a wife. Never speak evil of any one. lie just before you are generous. Keep yourself innocent ifyou would be happy. Save when you are young to spend whtn you are old. Read over the above max ims at least oncc a week."
