I)r. C. M. Jackson, I hilad> Iphia?Dear Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f mi, for the la-t five years. Such was my condition for twelve months that |he physicians and all who saw me said I must die. While in ilii^ condition, I was carrird to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but benefited by any water to which I was taken. While cm my way home, I stopped a week at Rutherfoniton, a small village in North Carolina, t* try ihe tffect of | some Chalybeate water in that p'aee. About the last of the week, I want into a drug store to get some medicine for my ch I.! and my sen. There were several of the village physicians in the store, and one of them seemed to take come interest in my case and, a?v< r risking me some questions, fhuI he had b?-t n a d)>peptic, and had been greatly bene titted I y the use of " Dr. 11 .ell aid's German Bit ters," prepared by y u, and he insisted that 1 would tiy t i? li?u-rs lit aifO called ihe next day at my room, and insisted so much 1 would try them tuat I is\cd him ?o ^ct me <>nc bottle. Me did it, | and I commenced taking it as directed, and I tin sny I was more benefitted by it than all the water and medicine i had ever taken. Al t* r reaching home one of my neighbors came to me l"r a presciiption ami medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) an 1 i gave him nearly a.i the Bitters 1 had left, which effected much -oo t in his case. He has often called on me for more of the same k nd of medi cine, saying he was more benefitted by it than any other l:e had token, but I have not been able to get any more for him or myself since; will you, there lore, please ship me a dozen or more as soon as pos sible. Respectfully yours, W. SMITH. D. R. HOOKER, Roger's Store, Wake Co., N. C , I October 24.1853, says:?'

Dear Sir:?I have received your letter asking rue, on behalf of thi Democratic State Committee, to visit my native State, and address the democracy upon the great topics which are now pressed upon the attention and the action of our party throughout the whole country. I should be glad to do so if I could with propriety. Early associations have not lost their force; indeed they are yet powerful, and bind me to the land of my birth by bonds that can never bo brokt n. I am proud ol the character of its peo pie, and I am gratilicd for the education which its institutions give me. and which laid the foundation of whatever usefulness may have attended me through life. But I have duties to perform here whi? li I cannot neglect, and I could not accept your invitation without the hazard of being absent dining the discussion and decision of iui(>ortant subjects, some of theui locally interesting to the people of Michigan. And your election follows so closcly upon the adjournment of Congress that the intcrveniug period will not In time for public political discussion. 1 must, therefore, beg you to excuse me for Reclining to visit you. I cannot flatter mys< If that any views I could present would furnish any infor mation to the democracy of New Hamp shire. Long and unflinchingly, and 1 may add. triumphantly, have they sup ported the principles of onr party, the political laiih taught by Washington, and Jefferson, and Jackson, and by a host of patriots whose names adorn the tairess pages of our history. I will not believe that they are now prepared, when experiment has becomr experience, and when the ascendency ol our party and the policy which it incul cates have aided in impelling our country onward in all the elements of power and prosperity, with a rate of progress before unknown in the annals of the world; 1 will not believe that at such a time and under such glorious circumstances, that ; ascendency is to be relinquished and that I policy abandoned for i ew combination* and for a strange and startling creed, j Fortunately, our national progress Las proved the truth and wisdom of our pi in ! ciples, while these have exerted a most j salutary influence up ,n that progress Let us not remove our ancient landmai ks, but hold on to the political inheritance which has descended to us. And I ear nestly hope that the New Hampshire Democracy will remain as firm as their | own everli^ting hills, becoming a monu | ment of patriotism and fidelity to the Constitution. If others in the States around them yield to sudden and dan gerous impulses, so be it. While we re gret, we cannot prevent it. Soon the excitement is sure to pass away. In the meantime, by zealously adher ing to our tried course, we shall hasten this desirable period, and shall stand ab solved from all the consequences which this unfortunate state of things may bring upon the country. I am, dear sir, with great respect, &c., Lewis Cass. Francis B. Peabody, Concord, N. II. M?N AND WOMEN NOW-A DATS | Somebody is reporting for the Boston Journal certain speeches of 44 Father Lsngly," who is a very sensible old cove. The following is kis opiniou of present generation: 44 Failed, has he ? I wonder they don't all fail ! For, what with the extrava gance and the good-for-nothiugness of the men and women now-a-days, where [ is it all to end ? Call themselves 'Sons of the Pilgrims!' do they? I wish to marcy their old grandfathers could sec them! They were true grit?real hearts of oak? but these popinjays ar^ nothing in the wen-ld but veneering. If we goon at this rate, the race will run out by another generation?we shan't have nothing left but a mixture of cox comb a;id monkey ! The women, too, are no better?it is just even. They aie brought up for nothing under thu bun, but to put in a buflett! When I was a boy, it wasn't so?the spinning-wheel stood in the corner! They were put to work as soon as they could walk?they didn't have no nurserv-inaid to run after ?r them?then mothers weren't ashamed to tend their own babies ! They could sow on a patch and rock the cradle beside. The gals were good for somethiug in those times ; they could spin, and weave wool and linens, linsey-wolsey, red and blue, and wear it too after it was done. They could eat beau porridge with a pewter spoon, and they were euoughsight happier and better suited than the gals are cow with their silk gowns, their French messes, and silver forks; yawn ing and moping about; silly, pale face things, with nothing to do ! Set,them to work ! Put them at it early. Idleness is the devil's foreman; and no chaiu is so strong as the iron of habit. Watts was nobody's fe>ol. 1 can tell you. He knew I what was what. Folks don't stand still here in this world ; ti.ey are going one way or t other. If they ain't drawing the sled up hill, they'll be s iding down. Aelam was a farmer, and Eve hadn't no 44 Irish gal'' nor 44 nigger wench" ty wait upon her. What do these popinjays say to that ? Ashamed of the old Jblks, I'll warrant. Adam wasn't nobody?Eve wasn't nobody?they know it all. But they can't work, they're so deli cate, so weakly. What has made them weakly ? Send off your chambermaids, your cooks, your washerwomen, and set your own gals about it. It made smart women of their grandmothers, and if the old blood aint run out they'll be good for something yet. It used to be the fashion to be ho nest; if a man got in debt, he tried to pay it; , if he didn't, public opinion set a mark upon him; but it is not so now ; he tries not to pay ; he'll lie, chs&t, and steal, (for waat better is it than stealing?)and the one that can cheat the fastest is the best fellow. It is astonishing how slip, pery these fellows arc. Thev drive f*st lenms without hit or curb; bay all they can and pay for as little as tbey can : pocket all they carry ; make a smash ; ,l.heir Bog"* at their creditors ; go to California or to grass?nobody knows which-and begin again, Goodgracious, il some of these fellows had lived forty they d have clapped them in prison and shaved their head?. * LLi Rachel ?HiB xxw flu ITroin Special Com Apoodriiof of ft. O Ptcarmx- J Paris, February 1, 1855. I saw last night M'lle Rachel in her new piece, ;La Czarine," which M. H* "rr-dy *?? ?nd which she intends taking to the United States as t>eing an excellent puce a re cedes with you. It turns on the adulte rous love of the Czarina Catherine (M'll Kara* I) with Count Sapieha, ( M. ltres aant,) which the Czar ^M. Bcauvallet) 'liscovers, or thinks lie discovers. She has been adulterous; but as the yountr count is led to execution, and while the Russian Jack Ketch has his sword uplifted waiting a sign from the Czar, the la t?r is deceived and the former is Vf l!,e coolness of the Czarina. The play is founded on history ; Peter the Great detected the Czarina Catherine faithless to him ; Count Maens was her lover; he was executed; his two aons were degraded and sent as simple sol diers to the Persian frontier; his sister the accomplice of his crime, and (be Cza rina's favorite, was knouted in public and exiled to Siberia. M'll Rachel was splendid in her part, and her costumes exceed even her uvual nitgnifioence; it is reported that she lias had made new cos tumes for all the characters sie will play in the United States. I am afraid that all l?er talents and wardrobe will not prevent you from seeing the utter insig nificance of the company she carries out te support her. A newspaper here sta'cs these singular conditions as the t*rtos made between He Rachel and her Rarnum, whoever he is; $24'),000 for two hundrel per formances, to be given wherever he may please to carry her; in other words. 51.200 a night. S120.000 are to be de posited with a banker in Paris before her departure, and th:s sum, from the moment it is deposited, becomes the property of M ile Rachel, her heirs and assigns ; a provision made to secure this sum of money to her family in case of licr death by shipwre* k, or any other casualty. If M He Rachel dies during tie? two hundred psrformanccs, her 8amum has the right to embalm her. and to expose h?r body from city to city de die in diem, at a "certain admission price per head, until tbs Barnum shall have been reimbursed the $240,00 he ex pended. QBE A? EVENTS EB0M ? LIGHT CAUlEg. How momentous are the results of ap parently trivial circumstances! When Mohammed was flying from his enemies, he took refuge in a cave, which his pur suers would have entered had they not seen a spider s web at the entrance. Not knowing that it was freshly woven, they passed by the cave?thus a spider's web changed the entire history of the world. ^ hen Louis VII., to obey the injunc* tions of his bishops, cropped his head and shaved his beard, Eleanor, his con sort, found him looking very ridiculous. She revenged herself as she thought pro per, and the poor shaved king ootained a divorce. She then married the Count, of Anjou, afterwards Henry IL. of Eng land. She had for her marriage dower the rich provinces of Poitou and Guienne, and this was the origin of those wars which for three hundred years ravaged France, and cost the French three mil lions of men. All this had probably never occurred had Louis not been so rash as to crop his head and shave his beard, by which he became so disgustful in the eyes of Eleanor. Warton mentions, in his "Notes on Pope,'' that the treaty of Utrecht was oc casioned by-a quarrel between the Dutch es of Marlborough and Queen Anne about a pair of gloves. The frailty of the daughter of Count Julian introduced the Saracens into Spain. "What can be imagined more trivial," remarks Hume, in one of his essays, "than the difference between one color of livery and another in horse races? Yet this difference begat two most important fac tions in the Greek empire, the Prasini and Veneti, who never suspended their animosities till they ruined that unhap py government." The murder of Caesar in the Capitol was chiefly owing to his not rising in his scat when the Senate tendered him some particular honors. The negotiations with the Pope for dis solving Henry the Eighth's marriage (which brought on the Information) are said to have been interrupted by the Earl of Wiltshire's dog biting his holine?< on the tee, when he put it out to be kissed by that ambassador; and the Duchess of Marlborough's spilling a basin of water on Mrs. Masham's gown, in Queen Anne's reign brought in the tory ministry, and gave a new turn to the affairs of lu rope. "If the nose of Clecpatra had bten "id >n & epignmic and brilliant manner, "the affairs of the world would have been different." Luther might have been a lawyer, had his friend and companion escaped the thunder storm. Scotland had wanted her stern reformer, if the appeal of the preach er had not startled him in the Chapel of St. Andrew's castle, and if Mr. Greenville had not carried, in 1704 his memorable resolution as to the expediency of charg ing certain stamp duties on the plaata tions in America, the western world might still have bowed to the British Sceptre. Giotto, one of tl c early Florentine painter*', might have continued a rude shepherd boy, if a sheep, drawn l>y him upon a stone had not accidentally attrac ted the notice of Oiambue.
