C. M. Jackson, l'hilad> Iphu?Dear Sir: I have been a subject of Dyspepsia, in its worst t rm, for the last five years. Such was my condition for twelve months that the physicians and ail who saw me said I niu*t die. Wnile in this condition. I was earned to the watering places in Virginia, Tennes see and North Carolina, bat was net benefited by any water to wbich I was taken. While on my way home, I stopped a week at Rutherfordton, a , amal I village in North Carolina, to try Uie effect of ?one Cluuybeat-: Hater in that pla e. About trie | last of the week, I went into a drug store to get some medicine for niv child and myseif. There were several of the village physicians in the store, and one of them seemed to take some interest in my 3CBR, and, after asking ine some questions, said he had been a dyspeptic, and had been greatly bene fitted by the use of ** Dr. Hoofland's Orman Bit ter*," prepared by you, and he insisted that I would try the Bitt?rs He also called the next day at my room, and in-ujted so much that I would try them that 1 arked h:m to get me one bottle. He did it, | and I commenced taking it as directed, and I do say | I was mure benefitted by it than all the water and medicine 1 had ever taken. After reaching home one of my neighbors came to me for a prescription and medicine, (he a dyspep tic,) and i gave iiim nearly all the Bitters I had left, which effected ,-uuch good in hi* case. Ue has often called on me for more of the same k nd of medi cine, sa)ing he was more benefitted by it than any other be had taken, but I bave not been able to grt any more for hun or myself there lore, please ship me a doxen or more as son as pos sible.

Japan.?A correspondent of the San Francisce Herald, writing from Shan jrhai on the 24th ot December, gives an interesting account of a visit which be tiad recently made to Nangasaki, Japan. The Japanese and Dutch officers?the latter attached to the factory at Decima? received him with much attention. In N'angasaki, both the nobles and mer chants live in great splendor, the pnblic buildings are very fine, and a great trad ing bustle prevailed. The education of native children is made compulsory by the State, and the town had a number of public schools. Immense shipments of copper were being made. A young no ble presented the writer with four hun Ired pounds of copper in return for a ;opy of McCulloch's dictionary. Amer ican whale ships abound in the seas, and ?wept all around the islands.
