Dr. C. M. Jackson, Philadelphia?Dear Sir: I have beeit-a subject of Dysf>epsia, in it* worst f rm, for the last five years. Such was my condition for twelve months that the physicians and all who saw me ?aid I must die. While in this condition, I was carried to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but wai net benefited by any water to which 1 was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a wfk at Rutherfnr 'ton, a small village in Nortn Carolina, t? try the tffect of some 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 rnyseif. There were several of the village physicians iu the store, and one of them seemed to take rome interest in my case and, after asking me some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the use of "Dr. Hooflind'* German Bia ters," prepared by jru, and he in?i?U*d that I would try the Bittwrs He also called the uext day at mv room, and insi ted so much that I would try them that I a.-ked him to get me one bottle. He did it, and 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, (he a dyspep tic,) and i gave him nearly all the Hitters I had left, which effected much goo.I in his case. He has often called ou 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 snip me a dozen or more as soon as pos sible. Respectfully yours, W.SMITH. D. R. HOOKER, Roger's Store, Wake Co., N. C., Ootober24.1?53, says:??? Hating experienced very great benefit from the use of " Hoofland's Germ in Bitters/' in Chronic Dysentery and functional de rangement of Uie Liver, and us concomitant evils, I am desirous of obtaining a quantity of it for the benefit of my community. You will, therefore, please send a lot, he. tic. CERTIFICATE OF WM. J. ATWOOD. Hi ntsviLt-K, Yadki* Co , N. C ,Nov. 1st, 1851. Dr. C. M. Jackson? Dear Sir: Allow me to ex press to you my sincere thanks for your di.-covery of a medicine which, to say the leastcrf* it, ha? ef fected a cure that all other med.cine*, Hint 1 have I taken, have enurely failed to do. 'Tlooflmd's Ger man Bitters'' have cured mc of lh? most stub!>0)i> and aggravated case of the piles that, perhaps, ever fell t? the lot of man. My case is not a nraneer in ti is community, as I am well knowi iu this and the -urrounding counties, and can truly sav that my re covery has astounded all iny friends and relations, a* I had tiied everything reoominended, and nothing did me any good until f was prevailed upon to tr> the Bitters. You are it liberty to *?ake any use ot this communication, for the btnefit of the afflicted, you may think proper. Tru!y yours, y WM. J. AT WOOD.

The following remarks of the Phila delphia Ledger will apply just as well to Washington. They are just to the point: A walk up and down Chestnut street, on a fine day, affords a practical com raentsry on the times. Between the splendid dress fabric* exhibited in the shop windows and the costly costumes displayed on the fair pedestrians, one is quite persuaded that the popular cry about the scarcity of money is altogether a delusion. Never, indeed, did the ladies dress more extravagantly. Not only is brocido considered absolutely necessary, by many a dame, on her daughter, who was formerly contented with plain silk, but almost the price of a respectable glace is cousumetl ia the velvet trimmings alone. Nor does the fashionable thirst alter expense stop here. Lace under sleeves and lace chemisettes exhaust the purse of husbands ; and lest these should fail to engulf sums sufficiently large, lace trimmingo fringe the petticoat, to dabble in the mud of the sidewalk. An ver in Chestnut street might be pardoned for corftluding that every father was a millionaire, and every fair pedestrian an heiress. If thisepet fashions were conducive to health, there might ba some reason for such extravagance. But the very laces which cost so much arc really traps for consumption. To parade a public ave nue, oti a bleak winter day, with a chest defended only by a half-transparent veil of lace, or with arms comparatively bare to the elbows, is the height of folly; but to abandon close-sleeves ahd high cor sages for this cough-giving costume, is madness itself. It is true that the fash i ionablc lady insists on a set of expensive , furs as the proper accoinpanimeut to this 1 summer-like attire. She dresses unsea sonably, at twice the cost it would take to dress properly, and then makes this a plea lor purchasing a new style Victo rinc. If she is wealthy, she wears point lace or Iloniton, and furs of ermine oj Russian sable. If she is less able to in dulgc in the luxuries of fashion, she ad heres, nevertheless, to its absurdities, sporting her cheaper embroideries, eren if she cannot aljord furs at all, content to shiver if sbe can only shine. A cottmporary has propounded the question,44 where is the money ?" and we answer, in the fine diesses of our wives and daughters. It is idle to say that the extiavagance we speak of, is confined to what is called the *' upper ten." The female attire, in all conditions of life, is criminaily expensive, at least twice at much so as it was five years ago ; and it threatens to increase. The clerk s wife imitates the wife of the merchant, the poor milliner the fine lady ; black Dinah, Mrs. P)tiphar. The ruinous exampl extends, and widens, ramifying into every social circle, and exhausting an aggregate sum annually, which would frighten the most thoughtless, ifit could be presented in figures. Most of these extravagant fabrics, moreover, come from abroad, and have in seasons like the present, when exports are deficient, to be paid for in gold. It is to the lax which our luxury lays on us, to the ex pensive fashions we praise in our wives and daughters, that we owe not a little of the present scarcity of money. We may thank Paris, in this way, for our panic. We do not deny that the men are also to blame. If wives squander money on the fashions, husbands spend it, some times on fast horses. Between the two, it is no wonder that notes are selling at two per cent., that stocks are down, that gold is going out of the country. The prices obtained for fashionable bonnets, and the price? paid for discounting busi ness paper, have a closer eonnection than a cursory observer might think. 1 hey are, iu fact, cause and consequence. New Hampshire Election.?The an nual e.cction in New Hampshire comes off next Tuesday week. A Governor, three members of Congress, and a Leg islature will be chosen. Upon the latter will devolve the election of two U. S. Senators. The whole State is in motion, preparatory to the conflict. To the usual variety of isms, the Know No thing element is this year added. Messrs. Kittredge and Morrison, the present members are the administration candi dates lor Congress for the first and sec ond districts, aad Wm. P. Wheeler in the third district. They are opposed by a Fusion ticket, consisting of James Pike, Anti-Nebraska Democrat, in the 1st: M. W. Tappin, Free Soiler, in the 2d; and A. II. Crogiu, Whig, in the 3d. For Governor, there are four candidates, viz., N. B. Baker, Democrat; James Bell, Whig; Asa Fowler, Freesoil ; and Ralph Metcalf, Know Nothing. Tns Grave op Ex-President Har rison.?There is not, in nature, a more truly beautiful spot, wherein the dead should lie, than that at North Bend. But, alas, how rude hands of unfeeling visitors liad desecrated it. Everything bore evidence of neglect, decay, and sac religious pillage. The door covering the steps which lead to the vault was oil its hinges?torn off, as we are told, bv some pic-nic parties, to serve as a table on which to spread their provisions and drinks, and after being thus used, it had been thrown down the hill, where it was lying, leaving the entrance to the tomb open and exposed to the winds and rains. The fence, too, which encloses the spat, was broken, the shrubbery planted by the hands of affection was trampled upon, the saplings were mutilated and broken. The whole thing indeed was * ruin, and so it remains. The family at North Bend have done all in their power to preserve the grounds from violation, but without effect; and unless something , is dono that will effectually prevent these shameless acts of saerilege, the whole structure will tumhle down. ' HOEBID KJ&DE&S IK KIUOUET. It has been communicated to the An reiger office in St. Louis, by a gentle man living in Lexington, Missouri. that two Irish pedlars, named John Kaneban and James Carrigan, left that rity about two weeks ago, carrying with them two large and valuable packs, containing dry goods and jewelry. Ther traveled to the town of Warrenburg, where they con cluded to stop for ibe night. Feeling very much fatigued, one of them, Kana han, immediately retired to rest. About an hour afterwards, Carrigan went to the bedroom of his companion, and was sur prised at not finding him. However, be finally concluded to lie down. As soon as he touched the bed he found it was wet. Lie lit a candle, and discov ered that the bed was covered with blood, and found the body of his com panion underneath. Hearing footsteps on the stairs, he drew his bowie knife and stationed himself behind the door. Three men entered, one with a candle and a bloody ax, and the others with clubs. Lie sprang suddenly upon them, snd killed them He then went to a magistrate, made his statement, was tried and acquitted. Ssxsiblk Pratix.?The Wisconsin Patriot is responsible for the follow ing : Ihc Chaplain of the Indiana Legisla ture recently opened the session with a general piayer, which closed with the following eloquent and sensible invoca tion : " And, O Lord, have mercy upon our legislators. Be with them and bless them, even if they know thee not. Spare their lives, and teach them to glorify thy name. Hasten them to their homes, where they may direct their attention to good works and general useful among their families and neighbors. May the people resolve to keep them there," and in future elect men of sound morals and temperate habits; so that good may hereafter result from legislation. Save Irom disgraoe, which must follow if the same crowd should again come here to make laws.'* We thiuk this invocation will suit other meridians besides that of the Slate of Indiana. The Peach Crop at thb West.?The Cleveland Herald says "we have serious fears that peaches have been injured by the nnparallelled severity of the weather. A fruit grower in East Cleveland reports his peaches killed upon eleven trees out of twelve examined. In the city, from a slight examination, we think buds enough are alive to secure a fair yield, but an unuusal amount of the wood is killed,?v*n branches of two years growth. An ex tensive horticulturist on the West Side, thinks peaches are safe, and should we have no ice, it is hoped that the cold thus far has merely thined out the crop, not destroyed it. The idea that fesches will not survive a greaterfall of mercury than 10 degrees belew rero is all gammon. T he state of the atmosphere as to dryness has the most important bearing, and ex perienced, intelligent, accomplished hor ticulturists maintain that dry frost can not kill peaches." Knew Ifothinga at Bocheater Breiki? g op a Mae ting?Freedom of Speech A row oeaurred at the Kocheater, N V., City Hall on Wednesday craning, on tha oo casion ot a meeting celled to denounce the Know Kothingi. Mr. Henry Hunter pretided, assisted by vieepreaidents and a aecretary. A committee on resolutions was appointed, who reported. The Rochester Union saya: ' "Ihe resolutions ware adopted without anj dissenting voices, as many of those oppoaed to the organiaationin City Hall had withdrawn ilotioLs were made to adjonrn, hisses were given for Littlejohn end Stebbina, groans were uttered for everybody aed anybody, and the gathering eeasad to be anythinc but a noisy mob. At this juncture all efforts te take minutes or proceedings seemed futile, and we left for the Couaty Court room, where a meet, ing had been organised For half an hour or more after we leit City Hall, the yells, shrieks and groans of the infatuated Know Nothings in that room could be heard di*tinotly in any part of the Court House. Sash an exhibition of rowdyism we have never before aeen in Rochester during a residence of many yeari, and during which time we hare attended, aa a reporter, meetings and conventions of almost every kind." Mr. A. B Diohinson. of Steuben, a state Senator, began * speech against the Know No hinga. Ho was interrupted, and amid great confusion retired. Cheers were given for Ull man, and groans and bisaos for beward, Little jjin and others. QrA writer in the "Country Gentleman.'? gives the following prescription fv the cronp: Divest the child of all olothing about the neck and chest; then bathe the throat and upper part of the chest freely with oold water. Lot thia be done by pouriag, spuaging, or very fro qaent application of wot cloths. While thia is beicg done, prepare warm water, and im merse the feet ia it. This gires relief in a short time; the child should be put to rest, with a jug of warm water te the foot, whoa perspi ration and sleep too a follow. Any one can follow these diroetions immediately, aad it is a complaint which ia aoon fatal, anleae check ed in the early stagea, and many preekras lives are lost became a physician is not at hand until too late to aave from auffoeation. tF'A correspondent of the Staunton Specta tor ?tatas that the Rev.
