The Human Tide kuom West and East.— It has been already mentioned that a letter from one of the Liverpool steamship agencies, received at Now York on the 12th inst. says an average of five thousand emigrants may be expected at New York for the next live or six weeks to come. Notiiing like the pressure for passage, it is said, was ever known before. A tide had already set in this spring of extraordinary magnitude and volume. There arrived iu New York from Europe during the month of May over fifty thou sand ; in the preceding month of April there were over twenty-seven thousand, and for the five months from January 1st. to May 31st, the number was upwards of one hundred and two thousand. Rut the arrivals for the first seven days of the present month are still more remarkable. In that week there arrived ten thousand nine hundred and seventy-eight. The greatest number of these immigrants sail ed from Liverpool, aud are nearly all Irish. Rut the Germans, too, como in great numbers, for during the same period there arrived from the two ports of Bre men and Hamburg over thirty-two thou sand. The rest are from Glasgow, Lon don, Copenhagen and Antwerp. The in crease is large over the immigration of last year. It is also said that on the other side of the continent emigration is increa sing. Every steamship arriving at San Francisco from Chiua aud Japan brings a load of Asiatics. The completion of the Pacific railroad, and increasing commer cial relations with the East is likely to swell the stream of emigration from China to a flood, which will not only fertilize the mining regions, hut spread to the great Valley of the Mississippi.

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 the same medicinul viatucs, 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, Dyspepsia, Nervous Debility, etc. is very apt to have its functions deranged. The Liver, sympathizing as closely us it does with the Stomach, then becomes affected, the result of which is the patient suffers from several of the following diseases : Constipation, Flatulence, Inward Piles, Fulness of Blood to the Head, Acidity of the Stom ach, Nausea, Heartburn, Disgust for Food, Fulness or Weight in the Stomach, Sour Eructations, Sinking or Fluttering at the Pit of the Stom ach, Swimming of the Head, Hur ried or Difficult Breathing, Fluttering at the Heart, Choking or »Suffocating Sensations when in a Lying Posture, Dimness of Vision, or Webs before the Sight, Dull the Head, Deficiency of Perspiration. Yellowness of the Skin and Eyes, Pain in the Side, Back, Chest, Limbs etc. Sudden Flushes of Heat, Burning in the Flesh, Con stant Imaginings of Evil, and Great Depression of Spirits. The sufferer from these diseases should exercise the greatest caution in the selection of a remedy for his case, purchasing only that which he is sured from his investigations and inquiries, pos sesses true merit, is skilfully compounded, is free from injurious ingredients, and has established for itself a reputation for the eure of these diseas es.

It has been the means of selling several in this locality. D. F. BURTON. SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN. Jan. 29th 1859.— "The simplicity and accuracy of its mechanism prevent its dropping stitches, to which many oth er machines are liable, and which has hitherto brought the "chain stitch" into disrepute. One cannot but admire the beauty and accuracy of its movements, and the entire absence of all noise, even when running at the rate of 2000 stitches and upward per minute. This alone must prove a great recommendation to it. Another merit is the good workmanship. The parts are made in terchangeable, so that in the event of accident to the machine, any part can be replaced, at a tri fling cost. It is, indeed, a "mechanical wonder ■ household necessity !"
