As a proof of their I pre-eminence over other remidies, the proprietor ine rts the following copy of a letter, dated BALTIMORE CITY, 9th June, ItSS. Dear Sir: I feel it my duty to acknowledge the creat benefit I havo derived front the use of Dr. Kush’s Anti- Dyspeptic Pills. I have sufl'er cd under that disease, in most of its forms, for up wards of tour years—have travelled much and had the advice of several physiciens, none of which w ere of much service to me, and 1 had lost almost • very hope ot ev .r being restored to health. 1 had I 't upwards of forty pounds ot flesh, and had bo rum*' so weak, (particularly in my legs) that 1 found the least exercise excessively fatiguing. 1 I, td made U'C also of all the popular remedies without benefit, and having accidentally heard ot yotir Pills, l determined to give them a trial, anrf < noting from the use of them no b< tt i-ult than I. at attended the Use of all the oth* r r modu s | had taken—but m tins I was happily di« ippoiut ed. In a few days 1 found my appetite much improved, my food rested easy on my stomach, my sleet) restored, and iti the course ot a leu weeks I felt myself n new creature. It is now neany four month' since, and 1 have no return ol the disease. Some of mV neighbor* who I re commended tilt Pills to, have used them w ith like good effect. Considering your Pills therefore : an invaluable medicine, i cannot withhold my fee ble testimony in their favor. I am, sir, your obliged and humble servant, (.''igned) j. ii. Harris. Rv indigestion, is meant loss of appetite & great \ v Jtnes-s particularly of the legs and wasting ol t:n- whole svstem. Heartburn, or an uneasy sen sation of the heat about the pit of the stomach, v. i.ich is sometimes attended with nausea or sick ne>s of the stomach and vomiting, belching up ot water which is generally sour, paleness ot the countenance, costiveness, languor, giddiness, low B,..s of spirits, disturbed sleep, palpitation ol the heart, flatulency, Ac. These symptoms vary in different persons some experiencing more of them, ;utd someless, each in tlie order and degree of his own particular case. These Tills act as a powerful tonic, neu ra!i/.e the acid upon the stomach, gives strength to the debilitated organ* of digestion, restore the appetite, remove nausea at the stomach, and ulti mately recover the health of the patient. They do not contain mercury in any form, nor do they silk en the stomach as’most purgative medicines do, but perform the office ofa safe and iiuld purgative, and are not suqiassed bvauv medicine. They are therefore particularly calculated tor family use. The inventor of these Tills was one of the most eminent practitioners of medicine in the United States, and used them successfully in his practice for many years. They are not got up as a nos trum to delude the credulous, bu are recommended on the basis of truth and experience. In order taut may become extensively useful and within the reach of'all, they arc offered at the low price ofoO ceuw per box. by WILLIAM BUTLER, Druggist, 2*21 Baltimore street, and J. CRUMBACKLR.

[The following lino?, extracted trom the W estern Souvenir for 1^*21), were written some years since by Dr. Harney, of Kentucky, the author of a poem entitled “Chrystalina, written with very considerable power and beauty, and iavor* ably notice! at the period ot its publication. The Fever Dream cannot but leave a favorable impression on the mind ot the render, in regard to the poetic, talents of the lamented author. Dr. llamey died of a pulmonary disease, under which lie was laboring at the time when this article was written.—Cincinnati Chronicle.] A fever scorched my body, tired mv brain 1 Like lava m Vesuvius, boiled my blood, U ithiti tlic glowing caverns of my heart. I raged with thirst, and begged a coid, clear draught Of fountain water.—’Twas with tears denied, 1 drank a nauseous febrifuge, and slept; But rested not—barrassed with horrid dreams Of burning deserts, and ot dusty plains, Mountains disgorging flames—forest# on lire Steam, sunshine, smoke, and boiling lake->— Hills of hot sand, and glowing stones that seemed Embers and ashes of a burnt up world! Thirst ngi d within mo. 1 sought the deepest vale. And called on all the rocks and caves for water; I clitned a mountain, and from clitT to cliff, Pursued a flying cloud, howling lor water:— 1 crushed the withered kerbs, and knuwed dry roots l^till crying water! water—While the chits and caves In horrid mockery, re-echoed “water!” Below n mountain gleamed a city, red With Solar fl unc, upon the sandy hank Of a broad riv er.—“Soon, oh soon!' I cried, “I'll cool my burning in that flood, And quad'my fill.—I ran—I reached the shore— The river was dried up, Its oozy bed Was dust; and ou its ari l rocks, I satv The scaly myriads fry beneath the sun 1 Wlrore sunk the channel deepest. I beheld A stirring multitude ot human lornts, And heard a lair.:, wild lamentable wail. Thither I sped, and joined the gener il cry Ot—“water!” They lu.d delved a spacious pit In search of hidden fountains—sad, sad sight! 1 saw them rend the rocks up in their race, \Y iUi mad impatience tailing on the earth To open and yield up her cooling fountains. Meanwhile the skies oa which they dared not | aw, Stood o cr them like a canopy at brass— Iudimtned by moisture. Tile red dog-star raged, And Fhicbus Irom the house of \ irgu shot Ills scorching shafts. The thirstv multitude I Hrew still more frantic. Those who dug the earth Fell lifeless on the ro< ks they strained to up-heave, j And filled again, with their own carcasses, Flic pi’s they made—undoing tln ir own work ! Despair at length drove out the laborers, At sight of whom a general groan announced The death of hope. Ah! now no more was heard The cry of “water!” To the city next, Howling wo rati—all burn ing without aim:— 1 Tltencc to the woods. The baked plain gaped for moisture, i And from iis arid breast heaved smoko, that seemed I The breath uf furnace—fierce, volcanic fire, I Or hot monsoon, that raises Hyrian sands i To clouds. Amid the forests we espied A taint and bleeding herd. Hudden a shrill, A horrid shout arose of “Blood ! blood ! blood i We fell upon tlu*ui with tho tiger’s thirst, And drank up all the blood that was not human ! We were dyed in blood! Despair returned; The err of blood was hushed, aiui dumb confusion reigned. Even then, when hope was dead !—oust hope— ! [ hMrd a laugh ! and saw a wretched man I Bm his own veins, and bleeding drink i With eager joy. The example seized on all:— i Each fell upon himself tearing his vims j Fiercely in search of blood! and some there were, Who, having emptied their own veins, did seize I Upon their neighbor’s arms, and .-lew them for their blood; j Oli hap|>v then were mothers who gave sutk.

And many fell In fierce convulsions:—many slew themselves. And now 1 saw the city all lit flames— ’ The forests burning—and the very caith on fire ! 1 saw tiie mountains open with a roar, I.*aid as the seven apocalyptic thunders, And «casofl.jva rolling headlong down. Through cracking forests lierce, and hot as Hell. Down to the plain—I turned to fly—and waked ! MISCELLANEOUS. From the Massachusetts Journal. THE BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL CONVICT. f Tib's singular story is actually true.] Hose Mac Orne was a rare sample of Scottish beauty. Her eyes deeply blue, as Loch Lomond; glowing cheeks; hair light and glossy, parted over her broad forehead, like folds ot tiax colored satin; features, which a shrewd and active rnind had strongly developed; a tall muscular frame of stately proportions; and a firm, elastic, rapid tread, which she had acquired in early days, when “Down the rocks site leaped along, Like mule Is in May.” Her youth was unfortunate; for her mo llier had died during her infancy; and her profligate and selfish father bad abandoned her before she readied the dangerous age of 15. Many were anxious to take Rose into ther service; for she was neat and thrifty as a brownie, and had die obsequious man ner of their countrymen, united with their proverbial knowledge of the most direct road to favor and fortune. Her greatest mislortunc was her beauty. Often after the most unremitting efforts to please, poor Rose was accused of a thousand faults, and dismissed by prudent wives and mo thers, lest she should become too dear a j servant. Scotch discrimination soon dis-, covered the source of the difficulty, und i Scotch ambition resolved to make the, most of it. To lovers of her own rank' she was alternately winning and disdainful! —determined that none should break her chains, vet dealing out her scorn to each, as their character would bear. With her superiors she played a deep and insid ious game. Trusting to her own strength of pride, she resisted iheir arts, while she almost invariably made them the victims ot her own. In all this Rose was actuated by something more than a mere girlish love of flirtation and triumph; she was ambi tious, and had formed high hopes ofan op ulent marriage. Many a Cantab aud Ox onion, many a testy bachelor and gouty widower, had got entangled in her toils, and been extricated only b/ the early in terference of proud or prudent relations. At length notwithstanding her modest man errs and apparent artlessness, the intrigues of Rose Mac Orne became as proverbial as her beauty; and she could obtain no service in any family where there was youth to be fascinated, or wealthy old age be ca joled. Hearing nn hast Indiaman was about to sail, with many ladies on board, Rose re solved to seek employment among them; and succeeded in being appointed dressing maid to nn elderly lady, who was going out to Calcutta to reside with an invalid j son. India! match-making India! opened tdorioua prospects to Scotch ambition. Rose took unexampled pains to please l*er new mistress; and in two days she was a decided favorite. No wonder the gipsy began to feel proud of her power; for she never attempted to plea'ie without decid edly affecting her purpose. But when was ordinate ambition known to be a safeguard either to talent or to beauty? In two days Rose was to leave England, and her mis tress having granted her permission to at tend the races, she ns a last act ot kind ness to one ot her earliest and most favored lovers, consented to accompany him. Rose was very fond of ornaments; and it chanced that her heart was particularly set on a large pearl pin, which her mistress had said she seldom wore, on account of its antique fashion. Rose had more than once signified how prelty site thought it; and wondered if she were rich enough to buy pearls, w hether they would liecome her full and snowy neck. She dared not ask for it outright; and she never in her life time had thought of taking any thing dis honestly. But vanity, vanity—that fool ish and contemptible passion which has ‘slain its tens of thousands,’ and that too among the fairest ank brightest of God’s works, prevailed over the better feelings of Rose Mac Orne. fcdic took the envied pin—wore it to the races—heard James Mac Iutyrc praise it—told him her new mistress had given it to her—and then dreading the discovery of the fact, began to devise schemes for exchanging the bau ble The path of sin is steep, and every step presses one forward with accumulated power. Rose had already committed a se cond clime to conceal the first: and now the hope of secrecy urged her to commit others. She sold the breast pin and bo’t a ring with the money, in hopes the pearl would never be inquired for, tins side of India—but in this she was mistaken; that very day her lady missed the jewel; and Rose went deeper in falsehood than was necessary to keep up appearances. I will not follow her through every step of this sha rueful struggle. It is sufficient to say the theft was discovered; and Rose in stead of sailing for glorious match making India, was in a.few weeks hurried on hoard ja vessel, in which sixty-two other convicts were destined for Botany Bay. I lus was a painful reverse for one soyoung, so beau ’ tiful, so inordinately ambitious, She look ed back upon England with mingled feel ing* of gnef and burning indignation— coutempt of herself, and hatred of the laws by which she suffered. And for what bad she endured this terrible conflict, wind , first and last, had given her more unhappi ness than had been crowded into tin; whole of her previous existence? Wjiy nothing but the foolish vanity of wearing a castofl pearl! “ But Rose MacOrne had a mind elastic and vigorous; it soon rebounded from de pression, &c began to think of new scheme* of conquest. £he looked around among her companions—most of them was till and robust—some of them vert handsome women.—She counted them, and counted • the crew. There were sixty-two convicts j and fifteen men. Before they were half! across the Atlantic, Rose Mac Orne had; laid a plan, daring enough for the helmet- i ed Joan of Arc, in the full title of her in- j spiration. She communicated the plan to the women, which they entered iuto hearts; !y and warmly. Rose might baVe found! lovers enough on board, notwithstanding the strict orders of the officers; but she chose but one—and tliat was (he Pilot! j Glances rind tender notes were soon pas between them, uoperceived by otlters; for the artful Rose was like a glacier, when the eye of die officer was upon her; and her lover was capable of playing as deep a game as she. At length the important hour arrived— every precaution had been taken—nil things were in readiness. The vessel stood for the La Plata, to exchange cargoes and take in refreshments. They entered the huge arms of the silvery river; and cut its waters with the arrowy flight of a bird. At length Buenos Ayres lay before them in tho distance, with the broad, clear, bright moon light spread over it like ft heavenly robe. 1 he wind died awav—and the vessel lay gchtly moving on the bosom of that majestic river, like a child playing itself into slumber. Midnight came— Hose had an eye hko burning glass—the crisis was at hand—and all looked to her for direction. Her lover, according to promise, had taken his turn to be pilot; & and all slept save him and tho convicts. He sat at the holm looking out at the wa ter*, and listening to the ‘silence audible.* There was a slight motion of the sails an nounced by a low whistling from the pilot. In twenty minutes every man was bound fast and gagged, the convicts were armed _and the vessel was in full sweep for tho port of Buenos Ayres! There it arrived— a prize to the prisoners! Great noise was made about the vessel siczed by tho wo men, and brought triumphantly into port. The ‘Lady Shore,* (for that was the ves sel's name] was crowded with South A mcricans. The bravery of the women was loudly applauded; and in three days the richest young Spaniard of^Ted himself to the bold and beautiful Hose Mac Orne. Her promise to the pilot was forgotten.— The ambitious Scotchwoman now’ wears diamonds and pearls io plenty; and most of her sister con\icit» are at the head of re* pectable families in Buenos Ayres.

The story, when written, must appear more like the creation of fancy than tlie unvar nished rental of fact: but a hour’s wulk may afford abundant proof, how weak and ineffective is the language in which it is described, and how far more fearful is the sight than the de.ail of human suffering. A few evenings ago, a young woman, whoso age might bo about sixteen, entered the shop of a baker, in one of the principal streets of iSpitalfields, and asked, in the name of a person who dealt regnlurly at the shop, for two loaves of bread. They were of course readily given, but were re ceived in a manner so peculiar, as to ex cite the suspicion of the baker, who, oo narrowly questioning the stricken girl, at once ascertained that she was not the mes senger of the customer by whom she pro fessed to huvo been sent. >Sbe was imme diately given into the custody of a consta ble, and taken to the watch house. When the charge w as made, she uttered no word, but looked the very picture of misery with out hope, and as she was led, or it may be almost said, dragged, along the streets, a few occasional but deep sobs were the only tokens that she was at ail conscious of. or ! cared for, the disgraceful situation in which ; she stood: but when tlie creaking door of j the temporary prison had close upon her, l she sunk Ujs>n the clay floor, and wept &; . screamed as if her hcait was breaking. It was want she would exclaim at intervals I want! w ant! my futhcr and mother aro starving! and it was with difficulty the | constable could loose her firm grasp of his | cloak, nnd leave llio wretched girl to the ' most dreary of all solitude*, dreary eveo ■ to tlie hardened in guilt, lie had, howev. ever learnt the uddress of her parents, nnd ' as lie bent bis way homewards, he called to mind the few atlhcting words she hud uttered, the scanty clothing that covered her limbs, and the w ild agony of her looks as she g azed upon him, while the tears fell rapidly down her very pale cheeks. Her story may he true, thought he, tn this mis* e. able district tiod knows wliat may have happened; and as lie re olkctcd the place in which «he had informed him her parents dwelt, ‘I will go,’ he continued, ‘and see ifshe has told the truth/ From hts own scanty cupboard he took some bread and broken meat, and sought out the miserabto dwelling. It was, indeed, miserable, pot erty and disease appeared as if written on the very door, as he knocked, a hollow voice, that see/nod the echo of the sound, replied, and lie entered. A man about the middle age wrapped in a kind of rug, his hair matted, his heard long, and his bloodshot eyes sunk in his head, was leaning against a loom, in one corner of the miserable apartment; in ano ther corner lay n woman among siytiic fifthy straw, a torn blanket was thrown over her, and at her feet, sharing the same scanty covering, were tlie children, who appeared more like corpse laid there for the grave, than living beings in tho spring ot life._ The woman drew tlie blanket more close ly round lier aa the stranger entered—tlie action deprived the children of their share, and the man saw that tliey were perfectly naked, Tbo room contained no furniture of any kind, and in tlie grate thero hod eri'len/?1 l»en no fire for miry dny^r
