M. Jackson, Philadelphia?Dear Sir: 1 have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f-rm, for the last five years. Such was my condition for twelve months tbnt 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 1 was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at Rutherfoniton, a small village in North Carolina, to try the effect of some Chalybeate water in that p'acc. 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 of them seemed to lake ?ome interest in my case, and, after asking me some questions, said be bad been a-dysprptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the u*e of u Dr. HootUnd's German Bit ters," prepared by y'R, and he insisted that I would try the Bitt-rs He also called the next day at my room, and insisted so much that I would try them that I asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, and I commenced taking it a* directed, and I do say 1 was more benefitted by it than all the water and medicine 1 had ever taken. After reaching hwme one of my neighbors came to me for a prescription and meJicine, (he a dyspep tic,) an I i cave him nearly all the letters I had left, which effected much good in his caje. He has often cilled on me for more of the same k nd of medi cinej paying 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 ci.?:.

JMT? fRAWK, TAYLOR, EVENING STAR. & FULL ajtd CORRICT ACCOUNT 01 THE cnrcivir&Ti riot. We take from the New York Express the following particulars of the Cincin nati riot, which that journal obtains, we believe, from the Cincinnati Commer cial: ^ A difficulty between the Germans and Know Nothings occurred yesterday re garding & cannon. We endeavored to procure the facts in the case, but cannot be positive that we have succeeded, as the terrible excitemcnt prevailing through out the city, and the countless rumors flying, rendered it extremely haid to at tain accurate information. As near as we can learn* the facts are these: The Germans borrowed a brass caanon of the American Military Com panies, with the purpose of firing it on election jUy. in honor of the birth day of Jefferson. The cannon waa taken from them while they were using it on Jackson's Hill* by a body of excited Americans, during the trouble at the 11th Ward ; and after parading through the streets, and once fired when loaded with boulders, in the 13th Ward, was deposited in the armory where it be longed. j The Germans, it is said, took this can non, or some other one from the armory, and placed it m a shed near Vine street, some four squares above the canal. There is a disputed cannon, but what one it is, we do not know, and perhaps it is not important. Gen. Sargeant was highly indignant at the proceedings of the Ger- I mans, in regard to this disputed prop erty, and demanded that it be returned. To this the Germans refused to accede, I and the news of the difficulty spread through the city, like flame in dry stub ble. What claim the Germans had on I the gun, or what was Gen. Sargeant's I authority in the case, we do not exactly I understand. It may be sufficient to say I that there was a dispute about a piece of I artillery, and an immense accumulation I of feeling in the city, which tended to I spontaneous combustion. The rumor that caused most excite-1 ment down town was, that the Germans I had loaded the cannon and proposed to | use it against the Americans. General I Sargeant, we are told, made an effort to I get the cannon into his possession. but I failed and in the afternoon great crowds I collccted in Viae street. Between three I and four o'clock, the street was thronged I from the canal bridge to the foot of the I hill. There were four crowds, each of { which might be styled an immense mass meeting. Two of these were of Atneri-1 cans?one on the bridge, the other a J couple oi cquarcw higher up?and the J other two were Germans. 1 The sidewalks were thronged, and J thousands of women and children looked on from the windows. The aspect of! affairs was decidedly warlike. The I Americans were in a state of extensive I excitement, and seemed resolved to have 11 the cannon at all hazards. We passed [ through the street, and heard enough | conversation to gather the prevailing sen-1 timent correctly. The most current re-11 mark was, "Let them give up the can- r non,andwe will let them alone?but I give it up they must! We saw Mr. Cox, J the Prosecuting Attorney, begging the Americans to return to their own side of the Canal, and settle the affair in some other way than by force of arms, but his j words eeemed to be wasted. Dr. Fries was passing along the street, and pausing to make inquiries, was sur-1 lounded by a multitude of Germans, and addressed a few words to them in tlieir own language, and also in English. As this gentleman's language has been liable to misrepresentation, it may be well to r give his exact words. Speaking in Eng* J lish, he said : i *41 want you all to keep the peace? for God's sake keep the peace?but if your rights are assailed, shed the last drop of blood in your veins sooner than I submit. But if possible, for God's sake keep the peace." Passing up the street we saw unmis-1 takable evidence ot a preparation for a r desperate conflict. Pistols were being 1 loaded publicly. Nearly every German 1 was armed. The handles of pistols pro truded from their pockets, and many had I swords. I We met a party of about a dozen stur- 1 dy fellows, carrying rifles, upon the tubes of which were seen the glistening of caps, showing that they were pre pared for active service, and to the rifles were attached sabre bayonet3?making altogether a terrible weapon, at once a rifle and a spear. The German women kept up a coi.stant chatter, in which the words " Know Nothing" and " Demo crat" were most frequently distinguish able. The street, viewed from the upper portion, appeared black with men as far 1 down as the eye could reach, and through the dust, above the dense throng of hats, I the flash of steel was at intervals per ceptible, Meeting a German acquain tance, he informed us that the hallB of I the Freemen and Turners were each filled with men armed with rifles, who swore to defeud the disputed cannon to the last gasp. I Returning near sundewn, the street was even more densely filled. The sher iff, with a view of removing the cause of difficulty, was endeavoring to get pos session of the gun which was the imme diate cause of contention, and no resist ance was made by the German officers ; 1 but the multitude pressed about the shed where the cannon was stationed, so that it was entirely impossible to get it away, and the sheriff left the ground on receiv ing assurances from C'apt Moore, and other German officers, that the gun should not be improperly used, and should be surrendered to the" proper authorities at any time. About this time the Germans detected i& their oaidat, or thought U?y &<*? Of the persons who destroyed the ballot boxes in the Eleventh Ward; a ory of Know Nothing" was raised, the indi vidual in question fled, and the koulder* flew about in a manner quite obnoxious to peaceably disposed persons. The Hermans, we then understood, were ex acting a grand attack in the evening, and making resoiute preparations to rt pel it. Coming down town, we saw scattered profusedly about the corners of the streets, triangular bits of red paper, which were supposed by outsiders like ourselves to be the distress sign of the Thill8' C4ll,n?.^for a meeting at once. Ihose scraps of paper, taken in connec twn with other matters seemed indicative of war-signs that blood might be ex. pected to flow. But it would be useless to speculate en the probable significance of the paper ctrtainly it had a meaning. Soon after dark there was an immense gathering of people in Fifth street, mar ket space. A slight platform was erected, and several speeches made. We did not hear Gen. Sargent's remarks. They were pronounced ?? conciliatory" by a friend who did hear them. He is reported to have said that the cannon would be taken from the Germans by correct au thority, and not by mob violence. Thos. Spooner, Esq , addressed the multitude, earnestly advising a quiet dis persion. " * The speakers were constantly inter rupted by the cries of those who were anxious at once to "pitch into the Dutch. Such expressions as "come one?go "lonj*?why don't you go ??go, if you're going"?were incessantly and loudly vociferated. In the mean time the Germans fortified themseives most formidably, erectine three strong barricades of wagons, carts, drays, aud whatever vehicle or available they 0001(1 man*ge to get hold ot. Ihese were erected?one across Vine street, at the crossing of Fourteenth one across Walnut at the crossing of Mercer, and the other at the junction o 1 Mercer and Vine. They had two pieces of artillery, crammed to the muzzle with chains and slugs, and planted one in Mercer street, and the other at the corner of Fifteenth am! VaQ' The hails of tl>o Freemen and Turners were crowded with mm armed with rifles, ready to march out at a signal. The house tops were lined with men, provided with all descriptions of firearms, and with boulders and bricks Sentinels were stationed, and the Ger man portion of the town thus placed ab solutely in a state of siege. It was near ten o'clock when a body of reckless Americans, about four hun dred strong, with a drum, fife, and ban ner, crossed the Vine street bridge, and with gay music, marched steadily into the German territory. They had pro ceeded nearly to the first barricade (par ties of half grown boys being in front as skirmishers, throwing stones at every appearance of a German) when they were I fired upon from the front, each side, and the house tops. We imagine from thel sound of the volley, that near fifty shot I w:re fired. One man was killed dead, and flvel wounded seriously, one, it was thought, mortally. The one killed was named! G. B. Monroe, a resident of Indiana, who I was stopping at the Farlow House. He I was shot through the head and dropped lifeless. The corpse was taken to the! Bremen street station house, and was I there some time before it was recognized. I He was at the head of the procession. I One of the wounded was thought to be dying at midnight, but we could not learn his name or place of residence. i Wilham Grey, a cooper, residing on Third s reet, between Mill and Stone,! was struck by two slugs, one of which I passed thiough his left hand, and the other lodged in his abdomen. He is not a man of family, but lives with his mother. A man named Boggs, of this city, was hit in the throat by a musket ball, which drew some blood, but did not in-1 flict a dangerous wouud. lie returned talking loudly, and may not be consider-1 ed in peril. John Coleman, who resides in Seventh I street, opposite Smith, was shot in the calf of the leg?not considered danger-1 ously. [ Patrick Dorey, of Covington, was j wounded in the side, severely. j One effect of this fatal firing was to | drive back the procession which was en tering the German portion of the town. The Know Nothings rallied on Vine street bridge, whioh they made a kind of headquarters for warlike operations. After this time no person was allowed to cross any of the canal bridges near the scene of the fight, and few indeed had much inclination to undertake it, as there was danger on all sides. The news of the fight soon reached the great crowd on Fifth street, producing I fearful excitement. Many persons were I in favor of charging the Germans in solid j mass, and makiug a regular battle of it, but the knowledge of the formidable pre parations of the Germans, and the judi cious counsel of several men wnh good lungs, and perhaps a little stratagem, re strained them. Prof. Lippit urged the multitude not to go unarmed and assault barricades de fended with artillery, and whole regi-l uents of well armed and well drilled men. He stated that he was authorized by Gen. Sargent to say that the Rover Regiment were under arms, and that if their services were required, they would act as might seem best under the circum stances. The signal for aciion was to be a single tap of the big fire bell of the Mechanics' Institute. At that the Rovera were to march, and such of the crowd as wished to go with them could do so. Prof. Lippit spoke very earnestly, re peatedly warning the crowd of the dan ger of crossing the Rhine, and beseech ing them to go well armed, if go they must. Most of the parsons were well armed, I wt imagine, u web * sale of deadly | THE WEEKLY STAR.

There was, soon after the news came that several persons had been shot, a rumor that large "American" re-in foroements would be received from Ken tucky, and the firing of cannon on the landing was said to be for the purpose of rousing the people of Covington. How much of this story was foundatioaleea of course we do not know. We heard from the canal bridjres at 24 o CiOck this morning. Large parties were moving about, and the sentinels were going their rounds, with business like solemnity. A number of onr best citizens wen engaged last night in attempting to ar range some compromise to stop the eftu won of blood and save the city from more damning disgrace and irredeemable ruin. We heard late in the night that a at tack on the Germans, to take revenge on them for the blood shed last evening, will take place this morning at seven o clock. We hope that the ruasoc was baseless, but fear the worst. It becomes every good citizen to remain at home, and do all in his power to soothe the hos tile elements that are now flaming in our midst. At three o'clock this morning, the ac customed quiet of the town was broken by an occasional shot along the canal, occasioned, we presume, by individuals trying their pistols. COME ONE! COME ALL!!
