Dr. C. M. Jackson, Philadelphia?Di ar S r: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f. rin, for the la-t five years. Such was my condition for twelve months that the physicians and all who saw ine said I must die. While in this condition, I was carried to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, l.ut wa* n*?t benefited by any water to which I was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at RutheiforHon, it small village in North Carolina, t*? try the r fleet of some Chnlylieate water in that place. About the last of the week, I went into a drug store to get some medicine for my child and myseif. TIitc were several of the village physicians in the slor", and one of them seemed to take some interest in my case, and, af;er asking me some questions, sttsd h? had been a dyspepuc, and had been gr**a:ly bene fitted by the use of " llr. II >ort .n-1's G?rrnati Bit ters,'r prepared by y u, and he iu*i.-ted that I would try the but-rs He also called the next day at my room, and insi-ted so much that I would try them tnat I asked h:nt 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 neighbor* came to me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) and i rive him nearly all the Bitters I had left, which effected much goo I in his case. He has often called on me for more of the same k nd of rnedi eme, saying lie was more b-nefiited by it than any other he had taken, but I have not been able to get any more for him or myself *:nce; will you, there fore, please ship me a d< z.en or more as tcon a< \*u sible.

THE VETO Or THE COLLINS STEWED BILL On Saturday evening the President re turned to Congress the bill making ap propriation for the Collins line of tUam ers. with a message coutaimnghis reasons for doing so. According to the terms of the conti act (says tho President,) the parties were to receive from the United Stales, for twen ty round trips each year, the sum of nineteen thousand two hundred and lifty dollars the trip, or three hnndrcd and eighty five thousand dollars per annum ; and they were to construct and provide five ships, of a stipulated size and qual ity, for the per formance of this or other service of the Government. Of the ships contacted for. only four have been furnished,the Atlantic, Pacific Arctic, and Bailie, and th? present bill proposes to dispense entirely with the original condition of a fifth shij, l?y only requiring the construction of one. which would but supply the place of the Arctic recently lost by peril of the sea. By act of Congress of July 21, 1852, the amount of compensation to the con tractor was increased from nineteen thou sand two hundred and fifty do'lars, to thiity-three thousand dollars a trip, and the number of trips from twenty to twenty-six each year?making the whole compensation eight hundred and fifty eight thousand dollars per annum. Dor-; irg the period of time from the com mencement of the service of these con tractors, on the 27th of April, 18.50, to the end of the last fiscal year, June 30, 1854, the sum paid to them by the United States, amounted two millions six hun dred and twenty thousand nine hundred and six dollars, without reckoning pub lie money advanced on loan to .iid them in the construction of the ships: while the whole amount of postages derived to the Department has been only ? even hundred and thirty-four thousand and fifty six dollars: showing an (xcess of expenditures above receipts of one nal-j lion eight hundred and eighty six thou sand four hundred and forty d( liars to the charge of the government. Thcactof July 21, lb52,provides 4that it shall be ia the power of Congress at any time after the 31st day of December, 1854, to terminate the arrangement for the additional allowance herein provided for upon giving six months' notice. This last provision, certainly a pri mary consideration for the more generous action of the government, the present bill proposes to repeal, so as to leave Congress no power to terminate the ar rangement. To this repeal, adds the President, the objections are, in my mind, insuperable, I because, in terms, it deprives the United j States of all future discretion as to the i increased service and compensation ; whatever changes may occur in the art of navigation, its expenses, or the policy and political condition of the country. While the contractors are tote paid a compensation nearly double the rate of the original contract, they are exempted from several of its conditions, which has the ett'ect of adding still more to that rate : while the lurther advantage is con ceded to them, of placing their new privi leges beyond the cc ntrol even of Con gress. The privileges bestowed upon the con tractors ate without correspondent ad vantages to the government, which le ceives no sufficient pecuniary, or ether return for the immense outlay involved ; which could obtain the same service of other parties at less cost: and which, if the bill becomes a law, will pay them a large amount of public money, without adequate considerations?that is, will in (fleet confer a gratuity, whilst nominal ly making provision for the transporta tion of the mails of the United States. To provide for making a donation of such magnitude, and to give to the ar rangement the character of permanence which this bill proposes, would Le to de prive commercial enterprise of the bene fits of free competition, and to establish a monopoly, in violation of the soundest principles of public policy, and of doubt ful compatibility with the constitution.

Swallowing a Bar of Leah.?Stom ach Cpexed.?The Wopello, Iowa, In telligencer says a Mr. T. W. Bates, whih* doing the exploit of sticking a bar./ lead down his throat, let go his hold, and it descended into his stomach. Th ? physicians of this place, not knowing but Bates was trying to hoax them, maue a slight examination at the time, inas much as he had made but little ado aboi it, and at times denied having swallowc t it at all. A few days after, tho victim having swallowed some acid substance, the lead began to corrode, and he began to be very sick. The physicians wera then called in, and it was soon foun 1 that every other attempt to extract ti. > lead would be unavailing, save opening the stomach. This being resolved upon some five or six physicians were calk I in, when Dr. Bell, of this place, pcrfurn: I the ojjeration, pmbably the first on n ? ord, of opening the stomach and extia - ing the lead. The bar was about elevt i inches in length, and about one halt t! t length showed the action of the ac. I upon it. The pitient, at the last a - counts, was getting along finely, with ? prospect of a speedy recovery?the i - iiamation caused from the lead, while i i the stomach, being the greatest dif&cult y to contend with, at present appearanc . The Intelligencer of the 9th tells xxa tha ; Bates was rapidly recovering. Why tiie Focetd op Ma&ch was Sr.? lectei).?The Portland Advertiser, coi recting the blundering statement whit i every year or two goes the rounds of tlj papers, to the effect that the fourth < I March was selected as the beginning e f the Presidential term because it will no; fall on Sunday for 300 years to come, says: 44 The selection of the fourth of March as the day for the beginning of the Prcs ? idential terms, seems to have been result of accident. The old Continental Con gress when the ratification of the new Constitution by the necessary number of States had been ascertained passed a res olution Sept. 18. 17S8, appointing thj first Wedneselay in the next January for the choice of the Presidential electors, th i first Wednesday in February for the elec tion of the President and Vice President, and the first Wednesday of March ft'* the organization of the new govermcm. The first Wednesday of March happened to be in the year 1789, the 4th of March, and as the administration which begun on that day was limited to four years* by the Constitution the next and all succeed ing administrations have begun ou thi * day of the month." A Base Calcmxt ? In a rccent article Dtvticks says:?"City girls art suc!? touch-me-not creatures, that no one, ur derstanding the nature of the aniuia!. would venture on a kiss unless he w.u - ed to get his month full of magnesia aui carmine.
