Something About Cub«. Cuba is the largest and most valuable of all the West India Islands. Its form is that of an irregular crescent, curving southward. It lies south of the Southern States, between 74° and 83° west longi tude, and 19° and 28° north latitude. A curving line running through its centre, east and west, would measure nearly eight hundred miles ; and its greatest breadth about one hundred miles. Estimates of its extent vary from thirty-three to forty seven thousand square miles,—enough for five or six States as large in territory Massachusetts. Inhere id a ridge of tains running east and west, of considera elevation, which furnish an ample supply of water for various streams that flow into the ocean north and south. Havana, its principal city, has a population of about 200,090. It is situated on the north side of the island, facing the United States, and lias one of the finest harbors in the world, with a narrow entrance defended by the celebrated Moro Castle, and other fortifications, and large enough to accom modate a thousand ships with deep water. The population of Cuba in 1 years ago,—was 1,860,000. Gold and silver, and copper to some extent, mined in the interior of the island ; but it has a far greater and richer wealth in its agricultural productions—its sugars, cof fer, tobacco, and tropical fruits. The latest reliable estimate that wo remember to have seen, divided the agricultural in dustry of the island into 1442 sugar es tates, 1718 coflea estates, and 993 grazing farms on which nearly a million of cattle are reared.— Worcester Palladium. ab 1UOUI1 ,—two A Wholesome Rebuke.

When Whitelock about to embark appears on occasions was Cromwell's Envoy to Sweeden, in 1655, he was much disturbed iu his mind as he rested in Harwich the preceeding night, when he reflected on the distracted state of the nation. A confidential servant slept in an adjoining bed, who finding that his master could not sleep, said : •• Pray, sir, will you give mo leave to ask you a question V' " Certainly."

Those who have no objection to the combina tion of the Bitters, as stated, will use HOOFLAND'S GERMAN TONIC They are both equally good, and contain ih same medicinal vijtues, the choice between the two being a mere matter of taste, the Tonic being the most palatable. The stomach, from a variety of causes such as Indigestion, Dysjiepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions deranged.
