M. Jacrson, t'hilnd* Iphit?Dear Sir: I have been .i subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst f rm, for the last five years. Such was my condition li?? twelve months that the physicians and all who saw me said I mu?t die. While in this condition. I was carried to the watering places in Virginia, 1 ennes see and North Caroliua, but was net benefited by any water to which I was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at Rutherford ton, a emal 1 village in North Carolina, to try the effect of some Chalybeate water in that piaoe. About the last of the week, I went into a drug store to ft some medicine for my child and myseif. There were several of the village physicians in the store, nnd one of them seemed to take some interest in my rase and, after asking me sotne questions, said he had been a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the use of " Dr. Hooflind's German Bit ters," prepared by yu, and he insisted that I would try the Biitwr* He also called the next day at my room, and instated so much that I would try them that I asked 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 bad 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 Bitters I had left, which effected much good 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 he had taken, but I have not been able to get any more for him or myseif there fore, 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., October 24 1853, says:???

A., in one of his lectures, a volume of which has recently been published, re lates the following' singular facts : "I knew a man of the highest order of mind, a man of fine feelings, but of great simplicity, and, far above all, affection, who standing before the corpse of his wife, said, "It gives me very pleasurable sensatiors." And yet he had truly loved her. The lines to "The Glacour," in which the present aspect of Greece is compared to a beautiful corpse, are fa miliar to, every leader. Lord Byron, in a note to the passage, remarks that 44 this peculiar beauty remains but a few hours after death." But I have been told by those who are in the habit of making casts that on the second day the expres sion is generally improved, and even on the third day it is often still finer. 1 have, in several instances, been asked to make drawings of the dead; an<l though, in every case, I have entered the room where the body lay somewhat reluctant ly, yet I have invariably felt reluctant to quit it. At Kreutzborg, near Boun, there is a church, under the pavements of which lie, in one vault, the bodies of twenty five monks in open coffins. The dryness of the air has preserved them from de cay, though the last buried has lain there more than a century. I visited the church with a party of ladies, who at first hesi tated to descend into the abode of death. We all went down, each carrying a light ed taper, and such was the fascination of this singular scene that we lingered in it for some time. The air was perfectly pure, and we seemed to be in another world, with its own eternal interests ef facing for some time all other interests. It seems to us a mistake that death should be represented by poets or paint ers as a hideous phanton. We could not contemplate those withered faces of old men?for they seemed all old?and think of death otherwise than as a gentle friend. Their attitudes were varied, and all had a kind of grace, which, though we knew it to be arranged by their friends, seemed peifectly natural One. the gardener, had a chaplet of witherid I leaves round his head. AH were clothed ? in the dre^s of their order: and their clothes as well as their bodies, though ; the last were dried to mummies, appear ed to be little destroyed The cast, very imperfectly taken, by Dr. Antonomarchi, from the face of Napoleon, is more hand some than any bust or portrait of Liiu, and, indeed, has the look of a much jounger man than he appears in the latest portraits. This is easily accoun. cd for. Idleness had reduced the super abundant fleshiness of the lower part of his face, and brought it back ti the con dition of an early period: and death, by leaving the mouth slightly open, had de stroyed that expression of selfish deter mination which the thin, compressed lips give to every portrait of Napoleon The profile of the cast is the most per fectly beautiful profile of a man I ever saw. THS JAPANESE Two Japanese went on board the flag ship of Commodore Perry, while at the port of Simola, Japan, and requested that they might be carried to the United States, which request was refused. Some days after, an officer in passing through one of the streets, saw two men caged, one of whom called the attention of the offidflr to their condition, and thrust through the bars a board upon which was the following, as translated by the interpreter to the exhibition. It was supposed that they were the same indi viduals who were a'terwards, it was said, executed at the capitol. 44 Wheif a hero fails in his purpose, his acts are then regarded as those of a vil lain and robber. In public we have been seized and pinioned, and darkly impris oned for many days; the village elders and headmen treat us disdainfully, their oppressions being grievous, indeed; there fore, looking up while yet we have no thing wherewith to reproach ourselves, it must now be seen whether a hero will prove himself to be one indeed. 44 Regarding the liberty of going through the sixty States (of Japan) as not enough for our desires, we wished to make the circuit of the five great continents; this was our hearts' wish for a long time. Suddenly our plans were defeated, and we find ourselves in a half-sized house, where eating, resting, sitting and sleep ing are difficult, nor can we find our exit from this place. Weeping we seem as fools, laughing as rogues?alas! for us, silent we can only be. (Signed,) 44 Isauh Koo-der Kwa-nou Mange." Every one in Japan is not only a spy on his neighbor, but members of families exercise an espionage over one another. They were, therefore, discovered by the Japanese authorities, and their fate was as above stated.?American Beaton. PETEB 1UKKS IN TROUBLE Numerous have been the complaints recently preferred against mock auction eers by strangers in this city, who have been taken in and done for. Since the present Mayor came into office, these com plaints have been of much more frequent occurrence than before, and in most cases the money has been returned to the vic tim by the interference of the Mayor and police. In some instance !, however, the funks have objected to giving up the money to the victims where they have though; pro per to prefer a complaint, as above stated. A case of this kind was developed at the Mayor's office, a shoit time since, the particulars of which are stated to be as follows: It seems, from the affidavit of John Kirkpatrick, of Newark, N. J., that he, in company with John Murpby, of the same city, were walking through Chat ham street, and hearing suue person THE WEEKJiY 8TA.R. Ttato ?irirMml raaaM? mm4 Km Jownl ? ow tainiac ?

Upon en t. ring the store some person ap peared tc be offering for sale eu-iaia watches, upon which be (Mr. Kirkpat rick) was induced to hid, whereupon ?ne of them was declared his. for SI2, which he paid to another individual, who was acting in the capacity of a clerk to the auctioneer. While in conversation with the sup posed clerk, he (the clerk) took the watch for which Mr. K. had paid his 812, and handed it to the auctioneer, who resold it for $2, and upon being remonstrated with for such conduct, they told him (Mr. K.) that the watch was not worth more than SI, and desired him to par chase a good one for ?40. To this pro position Mr. K. objected, and demanded either the watch he had purchased, or the return of the money, neither of which propositions the auctioneer or his clerk would consent to give him, unless he would at once purchase the $40 watch, and also that ho would eive them $28 additional. Upon swearing to the above facts be fore Justice Osborne, a warrant was is sued for the arrest ef the parties impli cated, who were speedily brought before the Justice, There the defendants the names of Charles Toppan and Alonzo W aierman. They were held to bail for further ex amination in the sum of $500 each ; and i? order that ;he matter should not be settled by a compromise between the parties, whereby the ends of justice are often defeated, the witnesses were required to fiad security in the sum of two hun dred dollars, to appear and prosecute the case. From the zeal manifested lately, we judge it to be determined to root them out.?AT. Y. Express. THZ ALPS. My first view of the Alps was at Berne. I had taken a walk towards evening to the " Engischo Promenade," as it if called, a mile or so from the city: Thenoe a fine view of the city is obtained, with its towering cathedral steeple, and the ambergris- colored Aar winding around it as almust to insulate it completely from the main lard. I head seated my self, taken a cup of coffee, and bread and hon^y, was observing the people and the scenery, and occasionally coring my eyes in the direction of some huge white clouds, which seemed to hai.g heavily ca the eastern horizon. The thought oc curel to me if those clouds wi,re but mountains how jnagnificent would they be; they would b? beyond ail couoop tion or all description ; they would sat isfy the most intense yearnings of the imagination ; they would fi 1 foreverthat great desire of the miud to feel, if only on^e, an impression of the purely sub lime. I listened to the uiumc tor naif *u hour, sauntered around under the trees, and then strayed along the proiucnade a little farther on, away from the crowd ; but my eye still continued, from time to time, to fasten itself involuntarily in t^e direction of those white clouds. They were the most unchangeable clouds I had ever seen : and the impression gradually gew upon me that there was sotra.hmg unnaturally hard and angular in their outline. Can these, then, be mountains ? I confess this thought, as it first darted into my mind, occasioned a kind of trem bling and sinking through my whoie frame. Is it possible that those clouas in heaven, so white, so ethereal, so high above other clouds, that4these are moun tains ? 1 wo peasants were coming along at the time, their coats and scythes under their arms. I walked up to them and said, '* Will you tell me if those clouds there are ieally clouds or mountains ?'' They looked at me with some astonish ment for an instant, either at the energy of the action, or the singularity of the question, and then with a bow answered, ?? Mountains, sir, to your service." And there they were, indeed, the Alps? the high Alps, like the imperishable white pillars of God's throne, piercing into heaven, encrusted with a pure mar ble of snow, and faintly tinged with a ruby light, as if it were the smile of the Almighty. I had seen enough. I felt silent, and bowed before the greatness of the works of God.?Provxdenu Journal. Beautiful Extrict.?The following beautiful paragraph we extract from the address delivered before the graduating class of Kutger's College by the Hon. Theodore Frelinghuysen, and eotnmcnd it to the perusal of the young : " Resolve to do something useful, hon orable, dutiful, and doit heartily. Repel the thought that you can, and therefore you may, live above work and without it. Among the most pitiable objects in society is the man whose mind haa learned how to think, and the value of his immor tal powers, and with all these noble faculties cultivated and prepared for an honorable activity, ignobly sits down to do nothing ; with no influence over the public mind ; with do interest in the conceras of this country, or even his neighborhood ; to be regarded as a drone, without object or character, with no hand to iift and no effort to put forth to help the right or defeat the wrong. Who can think with any calmness of such a mis erable career ? And, however it may be with yoff in active enterprise, never per mit your Influence to go into hostility to the cause of truth and virtue. So live that, with the Christian poet, you may truthfully say that u 'If yoor country ttan<! noi by yoflr skill, At leva', yoaf f??lhea ha?? aot wrought her tail.' " A remarkable rel;gious interest it reported to exist among the Lithuanians in Germany, in connection with the la bors of Biptist missionaries. Six Luth eran missionaries from Germany arrived recently in Texas, to labor among the German Lutheran population, there being a great need of pastors there.
