About the I last of the' week, I went into a drug store to get I some medicine for my ch.ld and uiyaeif. There I were several of the village physicians in the store, I and one of ihem seemed to take some interest in my I case aud, after asking me some questions, said he I had been a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene-1 fitted by the u<? c,f " Dr. Hoofltnd's German Bit-J tcrs," prepared by yu, and he insisted that I would I try the Bitur* He also called the next day at my I room, and innt-ted so much that I would try them I that I asked h!m to get me one bottle. He did it, I and I commenced taking it as directed, and 1 do say I I was more benefitted by it than all the water and I medicine T had ever taken. After reaching home one of my neighbor* came to I me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep I tic,) ml I gave him nearly all the Bitters I had left, I which effected much goo.) in hi-s case. He has often 1 called on me for more of the fame k nd of medi- I cine, raying he was more benefitted by it than any j other he had taken, but I have not been able to g'-t j any more for him or myself ?ince; will you, there-I fore, please ship me a dozen or more as soc,n M 1 sible.

The French intellect is qaick and ac *1. flashes its w?7 into a subject unon r? -f <*>?? upon remote conclusions with a sudden bound, and its deductions are almost in tuitije. The English intellect is l#?ss rapid, but more persevering; less sudden, but more sure in its deductions. The q?,c?" and nobility of the French en f. ? tbem to find enjoyment in the mul tiplicity of sensations. They speak and act more from immediate impressions than from reflection and meditation. They are, therefore, more social and com municative; more fond of society, and of places of public resort and amusement. An Englishman is more reflective in his habits. He lives in the world of his own thoughts, and seems more self-existent and self-dependent. He loves the quiet or his own apartment; even when abroad be in a manner makes a little solitude around him by his silence and reserve; he moves about shy and solitary, and, as rru1"8' u*toned up, body and soul. The French are great optimists; they sei*e upon every good as it flies, and re vel in the passing pleasure. The English man is too apt to neglect the present good, in preparing against the possible evil. However adversities may lower, let the sun shine for but a moment, and forth sallies the mercurial Frenchman, ^ holiday spirits, gay as a butterfly, as though his sunshine were perpetual; but let the sun beam ever so brightly, so there be but a cloud in the horizon, the wary Englishman ventures forthdistrust fully, with his umbrella in his hand. The Frenchman has a wonderful facil ity at turning small things to advantage. No one can be gay and luxurious on * smaller means: no one requires less ex pense to be happy. He practices a kind of glidios in his style of living, and ham pers out every guinea into golden-leaf. The Englishman, on the contrary, is ex pensive in his habits, and expensive in his enjoyments. He values everything, whether useful or ornamental, by what it costs. He has no satisfaction m show, unless it be solid and complete. Every thing gees with him by the square foot. Whatever display he makes, the depth is sure to equal the surface. The Frenchman's habitation, like him- 1 self, is open, cheerful, bustling, and noisy. He lives in a part of a great ho tel, with wide portal, paved court, a sna-1 oious dirty stone staircase, and a family on every floor. All is clatter and chat ttr. He is good-humored and talkative with his servants, sociable with his neighbors, and complaisant to all the world. Anybody has access to himself and his apartments: his very bedroom is open to visitors, whatever may be its state of contusion: and all this not from any peculiarly hospitable feeling, but from that communicative habit which predominates over his character. The Englishman, on the contrary, en sconces himself in a snug brick mansion, which he has all to himself; locks the front door; puts broken bottles along the walls, and spring guns and man traps in his garden; sWrouds himself with tress and window-curtains ; exults in his quiet and privacy, and seems dis posed to keep out noise, daylight, and company. His house, like himself, has a reserved, inhospitable exterior; yet, whoever gains admittance is apt to find a warm fireside within. The French excel in wit, the English in humor ; tho French have gayer ;ancy, the English richer imaginations. The former are full of sensibility, easily moved, and prone to sudden and great excitement, but their excitement is not durable ; the English are more phlegma tic, not so readily affected, but capable of being aroused to great enthusiasm. Tho faults of these opposite tempera ments are, that the vivacity of the French is apt to sparkle up and be I frothy, the English to settle down and grow muddy. When the two characters can be fixed in a medium, the French kept from effervescence and the English from stagnation, both will be found ex cellent. This contrast of character may also be noticed in the great concerns of the two nations. The ardent Frenchman is all for military renown ; he fights for glory?that is to say, for success in arm*. For, provided the national flag be victo rious, he cares little about the expense, the injustice, or the inutility of the war. It is wonderful how the poorest French man will revel on the triumphant bul letin ; a great victory is meat and drink to him; and at the sight of a military sovereign bringing home captured stand ards, he throws up his greasy cap in the air, and is ready to jump out of his wooden shoes for joy. John Bull, on the contrary, is a rea soning, considerate person. If he does wrong, it is in the most reasonable way imaginable. He fights because the good of the world requires it. He is a moral lxrson, and makes war upon his neigh bor for the maintenance of peace and good order, and sound principles. He is a money-making personage, and fights for the prosperity of commerce and man ufactures- Thus the two nations have been fighting, time out of mind, for glory and good. The French, in pursuit of glory, have had their capital twice taken; and John, in pursuit of good, has run himself over head and ears in debt. [WolferCs Poost. MATBIMOWY?WGMEH. The following extract from a lecture on the " sphere and Duties of Women," by Mr. Burnap, pastor of the First Inde pendent Church, in Baltimore, exhibits : the use and value of the affection in the sex: She it fitted to happiness in that rela i tion by the affections of her heauL The 11 grand essentials to happiness in this life r are something to do, something to '.ove, and something to hope for. We most have something to love. Especial?- j* this the esse with women, whose cap city for affection is tauch greater thr.n that of man. There is a famous passage in the writ ings of Rousseiu, that great delineator of the human heart, which is as true fo human nature as it is heautiful in ex pression : ?? Were I in a desert, T wou'd tind out wherewith in it to call forth my affections. If [ could do no better. ! would fasten thun on votne Lwejt mr tie, or Home melancholy cypress, to c:i nect myself to; I would amrt them ' r their shade, and greet them kindly for their protection. I would write tr.r name upon tbem, aad declare that they were the sweetest trees throughout a'l the desert. If their leaves withered, L would teach myself to mourn f,r them, and when they rejoice, would rejoice with them." Such is the absolute necessity which exists in the human heart of having something to love. Unless the affections have an object, life itself becomes joyless and insipid. The affections have this peculiarity, that they are not so much jjie means of happiness, as thiir ej ercise is happiness. And not only so, if ihe? have no object, the happtaess derived from our other powers is cut off. Aclion and enterprise flag if there be no object dear to the heart, to which those actions can be directed. The woman who has chosen a hu>W*:vl worthy of her affections, with a comniv.n share of this world's prosperity, hn the highest possible chance lor happiness. Her heart has found the very thing to which it was made to attach itself It is filled and satisfied. She has now some thing to life for. A!l her powers of u tion arc awakened to an energy irhicii she never felt before. She has, r^rt over, guidance and protection. What more can she want ? ller affections are the buoyant motives of her activity. ?:.i her activity is the more happy as"it ex presses and gratifies her affections. Thus life is absolutely full. Every day bi in *s with it its own gratification. There l-. consequently no regret for the past, nr r any necessity for postponing happifle-s for the future. DISCOVERY OF AHTIQUITI 3 15 III* COPPER COUNTRY. We have now in our possession, for safe keeping, and as a nucleus of a col lection of curiosities, some ver}' curious and singular articles made of cop;>tr. They were found near the west shore of river, about a mile above the mouth, at a place where now is a brick-yard, and these were disinterred b}' tho^e digging in search of good brick clay. After tak ing off from the surface of the ground about two feet of sand, the clay was t x posed, and the slump of a tree was dis covered. Digging still lower about six or eight inches into t!ie clay, an 1 over turning the stuuip, these articles were brought to light. First, a copper spear, about 14 inches in length, aad at its ba<^ a groove or dovetail is made, in which to insert a wooden shaft or handle. Two other spears, each about 1 inches in length, and similar to the first. Third, two pieoes of copper that hud evidently been very nicely forged, but for what purposes they could ever have been applied, is by no means plain : and it is quite difficult to give in writing a clear description of them. These are about 14 inches long and two inches wide. Upon one end there is the appearance of an attempt to ma^e a cutting edge. They weigh about three pounds esch, and are specimens of good workmanship. That these tools are the work of tho c who lived here years ago, seems the more likely from the place and position in which they were found, being in tho strata of clay, lying under the roots of stump, and about lorty feet above t:.j present level of the river and lake. The tree had grown up since these ar ticles had been put there, and the dep >? site of sand made above the clay tha depth of two feet. To do that, the river and lake must have been forty feet hig'.cr than its present level. This, of cour-c was years ago, before the memory of the present laces now inhabiting this coua try.
