Sucn was my condition for twelve months that ihe physicians and all who saw tie raid I must die. While in tlii* condition, I was carried to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but was net benefited by any water to which I waa taken. While on tuy way home, I stopped a week at KutherforUon, a small village in North Carolina, te try Uie t fleet of some Chalybeate water in that place. About the last of the week, I went into a drug store ?o get *ome medic me for my child and myseif. There were several of the viil*te physicians iu the otore, and one of them seemed to take ?oine interest in iny case and, af er asking me some questions, said he bad been a dyspeptic, and had been- greatly beue fitted by the u.-e of 44 Dr. Iloofl nd's German Hit lers," prepared by y u, and he in^irted that I would t y the Uitt-rs lie al-o called the next day at my room, and in?i. ted so much that I would try them t tat I asked h:m to get me one b ittle. He did it, *iid I commenced taking it as directed, and I do say I was more benefitted by it than ull the water an I medicine I had ever taken Alter reaching home one of my neighbors caine to me f*r a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) an.l i gave him nearly ail the Bitters I had left, which effected much goo<i in his ease, lie has often railed ou mu for more oi thu same k nd ul medi cine, saying he was in >n- benefitted by it liian any other lie had taken, but I have not been able to get any more for hiin or myself since; will you, there fore, please sbtw me a dozen or inore as soon as pos sible.

Gibbon'sVcconnt of his ex ploration of the valley o * tlie Amazon, or rather of one of its' main hranches, the Madeira river, (executive document No 36) from the Pacific side, we find the following account of the daily life of a Creole family in the town of Santa Cruz, the capital of the Bolivian department of that name. For a lazy man, Santa Cruz de Bolivia mast be a perfect p radise, to say nothing of the chance a bachelor has of being able to choose a partner in a city where there are fi?e women to one man: Very early in the morning the Creole getting out of bed, throws himself into a hammock ; his wife stretches herself upon a bench near by, whilt the children seat themselves with their legs under them on the chaiis, all in their night dresses. The Indian servant gill enters with a cup of chocolate for each member of the family : after which she brings some coals of file in a silver dish. The wife lights her husband a cigar, then one for herself. Some tune is spent recliuing. chatting and regaling. TL-e man slowly puts on his cotton trowsers, woolen coat, leather-shoes, and vicuna hat, with his neck exposed to the fresh air?silk hand keichiefs are scarce?and walks to some neighbor's, with whom ho again drinks some chocolatc and smokes another ci gar. At mid-day a small low table is set in the middle of the room, and the family go to breakfast. The wife sits next to her husband; the women are very pretty, and affectionate to their husbands lie chooses her from among five, there buing about that number of women to one man in the town. The children seat themselves, and the dogs form a ring be hind. The first dish is a chape of pota ;oes, with large pi 'ces of meat. The man hclp^ himself first, and throws his bones straight across the table; a child dodges his head to give it a free passage, and the dogs rush after it as it falls upon the ground floor. A child then throws his bone, the mother dodges, and the dogs rush behind he r. The second dish holds small pieces of beef without bones. Next comes a dish of finely-chopped beef, then beef soup, vegetables, and fruits; finally, coffee or chocolate. After break fast the mau pulls off his trowsers and coat and lies down in the hammock. I lis wife ligh's him a cigar. She finds her way back to bed with her cigar. The d 'gs jump up and lie on the chairs ?ihe fleas bite them on the ground! The In dian girl closes both doors and windows, takes the children out to play, while the rest of the family sleep. At two p. ni., the church bells ring to let the people know the priest is saying a prayer for theui which rouses them. The mau raise , stretches his hand above his head and gaps ; the dogs get down and whiningly stretch themselves ; while the wife sets np in the bed and loudly calls out for fire ; the Indian girl re-appears with a 44 chunk1'for her mistress to light her master another cigar, and she smiles again herself. The dinner, which takes place between three and five, is nearly the same as brcikfast, except when u beef is recently killed by the Indians, when they have a boil. The ribs and oilier leng bones of the animal are trimmed of flesh, leaving the bones only coated with meat; these are laid acioss a fire and roasted ; the members of the family while employed with them, look as if all were practising music. A horse is brought into the house by an Indian man, who holds him while 44 the patron ' saddles and bridles him ; he then puts on a large pair of silver spurs, which costs forty dollars, and, mounting, he rides out of the front door to the opposite house; halting, he takes off his hat and cries out44 Buenas tardea, senoritas,"?good evening, ladiea. The ladies make their appearance at the door: one lights him a cigar, another mixes him a glass of lemonade to refresh him self after the ride. He remains in the saddle talking, white they lean grace lully ag.'.inst the door post, smiling with iheir Wvitching eyes. He touches his hat and rides off to another neighbor. '?fter spending the afternoon in this way, he rides into the house again. The In dian holds the hotse by the bridle, w hile the master dismounts, 'fakirg of!" the saddle, he throws it into one chair, the bridle into another, his spurs on a third, and him self into the hammock; thelndian leads out the horse, the dogs pull down the ridiLg gear to the floor, and lay them selves on their usual bedsteads. Chocos late and cigars are repeated. A 8IHQULAR DEE/IK?MOST BEMABK ABLE BKaLlZiTIO*. A young married lady, the wife of a Main stieet merchant, residing on Race street, in the vicinity of Third, had a most singular dream on the night of Wednes day, December 6th, which has since been realized in a remarkable manner. 3 be name of the lady we withhold at her re quest. On the night spoken of, she re tired to her bed in a pleasant frame of mind, not however, particularly elated. The first of the night she was visited by a deep sleep, which, as the dawn ap peared, gave way to slumber of a nure broken character. Suddenly she dreamed ?and dreaming, saw her brother, the same that two years ago left his orphan home to brave the hardships of Califor nia life, that he might secure to himself and sister a competence. She saw him rise from a small hut-like tenement, and running his hand under the pillow, drew from thence a revolver, and a huge bowie knife, both qf which he placed in a belt which he wore around his body. # It seemed that it was not far from midnight, for the embers were yet smoking on J.he i ude hearth, and as they cast their lurid glare over his countenance, she thought that perhaps it was ah a dream, bat then she concluded that no dream could be so real, and bcctme convinced that all was : m inttn variety at teurw8ta| * TttMS ai^k copy, pm iuul Flee To curat.

While she gs zed upon hit coun tenance the expression suddenly changed ?it betrayed an intense watchfulness; every pu'sed seemed suspended, and eve ry heart-throb-muffled. while the eye st*>d fixed upon a particular spot near the head of the bed, and through a small aperture not aoticed before, was a hu man hand grasping a short, keen instru ment, looking terribly like a dagger. It appanntly sought the head of the bed, ior as it touched the pillow, it passed it* self slowly down to about the suppMed region of the heart, and poised itaeli lor a second as if to make sure its aim. That second was sufficient for the broth er to rise from his Mat, draw his bowie kniic from his belt, and advance a sin gle step toward the bed Just as the dag ger descended into the blankets the knife of the brother came down like a meat axe, close to the aperture, completely sev ering the hand of the would-be assassin above the wrist, and causing the dagger mid Utnb to fall on the bed, trophies of his victory. A deep prolonged yell sounded from without, and on rushing to the aperture and convincing him self taat there was but one. the brother on U>1 ted the door and stepped out. The moon was shining, and by its light was discovered a man writhing as if in the last sgonies. The miner drew the body to the door, and turning his face to the fire, beheld the visage of a Mexican, who for some fancied injury, has sworn to never rest content until he had taken his (the broth er's) life. On examining the man close ly, he was discovered to have a wound in the vicinity of the heart, which a long sharp, two-edged blade in his left hand abundantly accounted fo*. Failing ia the attempt to assasinate his victim, he had, with his remaining hand, driven an other knife to his own heart. The lady awoke, and vividly impressed with the dream, related its substance, as here re corded, to her husband. Judge then of her aud his surprise whea they yesterday received a letter from California, per the North Star, from the brother, relating an adventure on the night of tha 6th Dec., precisely identical with that seen by the lady in her dream. Verilv there are strange things in heaven and earth. Was the dream merely an accidental coinci dence, or was the spirit of tha dreamer actually present in the lodge of the bro ther ? T hese and other inquiries invol untarily rise to the lips and seek a solu tion not yet granted to mortals to solve. [Cincinn.ti Times A Noble Dued.?During the night of November 26th last, in a thick snow stcna, the wind blowing a heavy gale down the lake, the water chiliad and making ice fast, the Canadian schooner Conductor, Cant, llachet, struck on the bar outside of Long Point cut, on the island side, bent over and filled with WAicr immediately, some distance from sh'>re, the sea making a complete breach over her; driving the crew to the rigging lor their lives. In the morning at day light they were discovered clinging to the wreck, by Mrs. Margaret Becker, a trapper's wife, the sole inhabitant of that ei dof the island ; her husband being on the main land. She immediately went down abreast of the vesssl on the beach, and built a large fire of logs, made some hot tea, and prepared some food for them itt case they reached the shore, and to refresh their drooping spirits by showing th-?m succor was at hand. All that day, with the tempest raving around her. did that heroic woman watch the suffering seamen clinging to the rigging of the wreck. Just at nightfall the captain called to the mate, who was on the other side of the rigging, that tbey would all perish if ihey had to remaiu in the rigging an other night, and that he was going to attempt to swim ashore; if he succeeded ihe rest could follow him; if he drowned they could cling to the rigging and run the chances, lie leaped overboard and struck out. As he reached the under tow and backwater, his strength fai'ing, and chilled and benumbed with cold, he certainly would have been drowned had not the woman gene to his rescue. She waded in through the surf up to her ncck, grasping him and dragging him out safely. The balance ol the crew then followed him one by one, with the same result, this noble woman breasting the sea, and meeting and dragging thtui out singly as they tame ashore ; being in the mniu, instrumental in saving the whole crew. Sush noble conduct de serves more than a passing notice. She is a woman of the most humble position in life, but showed herself on this occa sion a true heroine, and possessed of the noblest qualities of heart and soul.?Buf falo Com. Adv. Woman's Monostllablbs.?Fome lit tle while ago, at a private evening party in the city of New York, a young lady of considerable pretensions to the highest attributes of woman?wit and beauty? became engaged in playful repartee with a gentleman; but, losing ground, she resolved to direct his humor into a new channel, and requested him to compose a batch of rhymes on the subject they had been discussing.
