Dr. C. M. J.k kson, Philadelphia?Dear Sir; 1 have been a subject of Dyspepsia, In its worst firm, for the last live year*. Such was my condition f?>r twelve month- that the physicians and all who ssw me said I must die. While in thi? condition, I was earned to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, but was net benefited by any water to which I was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at Rutherfortton, a small village in North Carolina, to try the effect of some Chalybeate water in that place. About the last of the week, I went into a drug store to gel some medicine for my child and inyseif. There were several of the village physicians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my case, and, after asking ine some questions, said he had iieen a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the use of <? Dr. HootLnd's German Bit ters,"' prepared by y-u, and he iusisted that I would try the Bittern He also called the uen day at iiy room, and insuted so much that I would try theiii that i asked him to get me one bottle. He did it, and I commenced taking it as directed, and f 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 io me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep tie,) an.I i irave him nearly all the Bitters I had left, which effected much goc i in his case. He Kn* often called ine for more of the same k nd of medi cine, saying he was more benefitted by it than any other he had taken, bi.. 1 have not been able to ge*t any more for linn or myself since; will you, there fore, please ship me a dozen or more as soon as pos sible.

TACOlt AND THE CIQAB, GIRL. During the first year of Tacon's gov ernorship in Cuba, a young Creole girl, named Mftalda Estates, kept a little cigar shop in the Calle ties Mercaderes. and her shop was the resort of all the young of the town who loved a choicely made and superior cigar. Miralda was only seventeen, without father or mother liv ing, and earned an humble though suffi cient support by her industry in the manufactory we have named, and by the sales of her store. She was a picture of ripened tropical beauty, with a finely rounded form, a lovely faco of a soft olive tint, and teeth that a Tuscarora might envy. At times there was a dash of languor in her eye that would have warmed an anchorite ; and then her cheerful jests were so deli cate, yet free, that she had unwittingly turned the heads, not to say hearts, of half the young merchants in the Catle des Mercaderes Lut she dispensed her favors without partiality; none of the rich and gay exquisites of Havana could say they had ever received any particular acknowledgment from the fair young girl to their warm and constant atten tions. For this one she had a pleasant smile, for another she had a few words pleasing gossip, and for a third a snatch of a Spanish song ; but to none did she give her confidence ; except to young Pedro Matanzes, a fine looking boatman, who plied between the Punta and Moro Castle, situated on the opposite side of the harbor. Pedro was a manly and courageous young fellow, rather above his class in intelligence, appearance and associations, and pulled his oars with a strong arm and a light heart, and loved the beauti ful Miralda with an ardor romantic and truthful. He was a sort of leader among the boatmen in the harbor, for reason of; his superior cultivation and intelligence, ; and his quick-witted sagacity was often turned for the benefit of his comrade:-. Many were the noble deeds he had done and about the harbor since a boy, for he had followed his calling of a waterman from boyhood, as his fathers had done before him. Miralda *n turn ardentlv loved Pedro, and when he catre at night find Rat in the back part of her little shop, she hid always a neat and fragrant cigar for his lips. Now and then, when she could steal; away from htr shop, on some holiday,1 Pedro would hoist a tiny sail in the pro v ??t his boat, and securing the littk stein awning over Miralda's head, would steer out into the gulf and coast along the ro mantic shore. There was a famous roue, well known at this time in Havana, named Count1 Almonte, who had conceived a passion j for the girl, and, indeed, he had grown ? to be one of her most liberal customers. With a cunning and shrewdness, and a j knowledge of human nature, the Count besiged the heart of his intended victim | without appearing to do so, and carrii (1 j on his plan of operations for many weeks j before the innocent girl even suspecttd his possessing a partiality for her, until one day she was surprised bv a present from him of so rare and costly a nature as to lead her to suspect the donor's in tentions towards her, and to piomptly decline the proffered gift. Undismayed by this, still the Count continued his proiuse patronage in a way to which Mi ralda could find no plausible pretext of complaint. At last, seizing upon what he consid ered a favorable momeut. Count Almonte declared his passion to Miralda, besought her to comc and be the mistress of his broad and rich estates at Cerite, near the city, and offered all the promises of wealth, favor and fortune?but in vain. The pure minded girl scorned his offer, and bade him never more insult her by visiting her shop. Abashed, but not confounded, the Count retired ; but only to weave a new snare whereby he could entangle her, for he was not to be easily thwarted. One afternoon, not long after this, as the twilight was settling over the town, a file of soldiers halted just opposite the door of the little cigar shop, when a young man, wearing a lieutenant's in signia, entered and asked the attendant if her name was Miralda Estales, to which she timidly responded. M Then you will please come with me* " By what authority ?" asked the girl. " The order of the Uovernor General." " Then I must obey you," she an swered : and prepared to follow him at once, m Steppfcg to the door with her, the young officer directed his men to march on, and, getting into a volante. told Mi ralda they would drive to the guard house. But to the surprise of the girl, she soon after discovered that they were rapidly passing the city gates, and im mediately after were dashing off on the road to Cerite. Then it was she began to fear that some tricks had been played upon her: ai d these fears were soon confirmed by the volante's turning down the long alley of palms that led to the estate of Count Almonte. It was in vain to expostulate now; she lelt that she was i? the power of the reckless no bleman, and the pretended officers and soldiers were his own people, who ha l adopted the disguise of the Spauish army uniform. Count Almonte met her at the door, told her to fear no violence, that htr wishes should be respected in all things, save her personal liberty ; thai he trust ed, in time, to persuade her to look more favorably upon him, and that in all things he was her slave. She replied contemptuously to his words, and charged him with the cowardly trick by which he had gained control of her Uheity. Hut she was left by herself, though watched by his orders at all tiaies to prevent r.v.r escape. She knew very well that the power and will of Count Almonte were too strong for any humble friend of hers to thwart: and yet she somehow felt a conscious strength m Pedro: and secret ly chenshed the idea that he would dis cover her plac? of confinement, and adopt some means to deliver her. The stiletto is the constant companion of the lower classes, and Miralda had been used to wear one even in her store aganist contin gency; but she now regarded the tiny weapon with peculiar satisfaction, and slept with it in her bosom. irmall was the clue by which Pedro Mantanzes discovered the trick of Count Almonte. First, this was found out, then that circumstance, and these, being put together, they led to other results, until the indefatigable lover was at last fully satisfied that he had discovered her pla- e of confinement. Disguised as a friar of the order ofSan Felipe, he sought Coun. Almonte s gates at a favorable moment, uiet Miralda, cheered her with fresh hopes and retired to arrange some plan for her delivery. There was time to think now; I heretofore he permitted himself not even I an hour's sleep; but she was safe, that is I not in immediate danger, and he could breathe more freely. He knew not with whom to advise: he feared to advise with I those above him in society, lest they might I betray his purpose to the Count, and his I own liberty by some means be thus jeop-1 ardized lie could only consider with I himself, he must be his own counsellor in I this critical case. At last, as if in despair, he started tol his feet one day, and exclaimed to him -1 self. "Why not see the Governor-General I and tell fcim the whole truth ? Ah ! see I him ? Ilow is that to be effected ? And I then this Count Almonte is a nobleman ! I ihey say Tacon loves justice. We shall I see. I will go to the Governor General; I it cannot do any harm, if it does no! good. I can but try." And Pedro did I seek the Governor. True, he did not at I once get audience of him, nor the first, I uor second, nor third time; but he perse-1 vered, and was admitted at last. Here I he told his story in a free, manly voice I undisguised and open in all things, so I that Tacon was pleased. "And the girl," ^aid the Governor I General, over whose countenancaji dark I scowl had gathered, "is she thy sister ?,,| "No, Kxcelenz'a, she is dearer still,! she is my betrothed.' The Governor bidding him come near- I er, took a golden cross from the table. I and handing it to the boatronn, as he re-1 garded him searchingly, said : | "Swear that what you have related tol me ie true, as you hope for heaven ?" "I swear, said Pedro, kneeling and! kissing the emblem with simple rever-| MiCfc. The Governor turned to ins table,! wrote a lew brief lines, and touching thel bell, .summoned a page from an adjoining! room to send the captain of the guard to I him. Prompt a? w?re all who had any I connection with the Governor's ho-ise-l hold, the officer appeared at once, and re -1 eeiyod the written order, with directions! to bring Count Almonte and a young! girl named Miralda immediately btfore I him. Pedro was sent to an ante-room. I ; and the business of the day passed on I as usual in the reception hall of the Gcv-1 ernor. Less than two hours had transpired, I when the Count and Miralda stood before I Tacon. Neither knew the nature of the I business which had summoned them I there, \lmonte half suspected the truth. I and the poor girl argued to herself that I her fate could not but be improved by I the interference, let its nature be what J11 might. i "Count Almonte, you doubtless know why I have ordered you to appear here " I "Excelenzia, 1 fear I have been indis-| crcet," was the answer. I "You adopted the uniform of the guards J for your own private purpDscs upon tLii I young girl, did you not ?" "Lxcelenzia, 1 canuot deny it." "Declare, upon your honor, Count Al monte, whether she is unharmed, whom I you have thus kept a prisoner." ; "Excelenzia, she is as when she en tered my roof," was the truthful reply. The Governor turned and whispered something to his page, then continued his questions to the Count, while he made some minutes u|K>n paper. l edro was now summoned to explain some matter, and, as he entered, the Governor turned his back for one mo ment as if to seek for some papers upon his table, whde Miralda was pressed in the arms of the boatman. It w?s but for a moment, and the next Pedro wab bowing humbly before Tacon. A few moment's more and the Governor's page reiurned, accompanied by a monk of the Church of Santa Clary, with the em blems of his office. ' Holy," .said Tacon, "you will bind .he hands of this Count Almonte and Miralda Estales together in bonds of wedlock." "Excelenzia!" exclaimed the Count in amaz?raent. "Not a word, 4'Jenor; it is now your )art to obey." "My nobility, Excelenzia!" "It is forfeiteel!" haid Tacon. Count Almonte had too many evi dences before mind's eye of Tacon's mode of administering justice, and of enforcing his own will to dare to rebel, uud he doggedly yielded in silence. Poor Pedro, not daring to speak, was half crazed to see the prize he had so long coveted thus about to be torn fronijnru. lu a moment the ceremony was per formed, the trembling and bewildered, girl not daring to thwart the Governor's j orders, and the priest declared them hus-1 band and wife. The captain of the guards was summoned and dispatched with some written order, and in a sub sequent moment Count Almonte, com pletely, completely subdued, and broken spirited, was ordered to return to his plantation. Pedro aiid M;riUii Wc<c d?re"ted to remain in an adjoining apartment to tha.< which had Deen the scgae ol this tun^u lar procedure. Count A)m<*te mounted his horse, and with a single attendant soon passed out of the city gates. But hardly had b? passed the corner of the Pasco, when a dozen muskets fired a vol ley upon him, and be fell n corpse upon the road. His body was quietly removed. And the captain of the guard, who had wit* nessed the act, made a minute upon hi* order as to (be time and place, and mounting his horse, rode to the Onr ernor's palacc. entering (be presence chamber, just as Pedro and Mmdda were once more summoned before the < Governor. 44Excelenxis, said the offioer return ing the order, "it is executed!" "Is the Count dead ?" "Excelcnzia, yes." "Proclaim in the usual mszmer, the marriage of Count Almonte and Miraldn Estates, and also, that she is his legal widow, possessed of his titles and es tates. See that a proper olBcer attends her to the Count's estate, and enforce* this decision. Then turning ts Pedro Mantanze6, be said, "No man or woman in this Island is so humble but that they may claim justice of Tacon!"?
