J Af ne, -Dear Sir: Justice compels me to make the following state ment of the extraordinary effects of your valuable medicine the Alterative. I certify that my wife was VMicted for fourteen years, during which time her dis ease baffled the skill : of several eminent Physicians, and after finding that every means that were used failed to relieve her, I concluded to place her in the Pennsylva nia Hospital, hoping that the care and treat ment she would there receive from the Physicians.Jn that institution, she might again be restored to health. But to mj great disappointment, she grew worse, and became entirely deranged in her mind, and Itwas obliged to take her home again '.'incurable" and Bereft of Reason. I will here mention that at this time the more prominent symptoms of her disease were Dyspepsia and Liver Complaint, at tended "with sickness of the stomach, and vomiting of a very offensive foetid mucus, pains in her head, back and stomach, and in the region of the heart, with violent attacks'of Colic, a troublesome cough from large quantities of phlegm in her'throat, which kept her continually gagging and retching to throw it up. She had no appe tite, and was very weak. She also suffer ed very much from a uterine disease by which she was confined to her bed. Add to all the above, the deranged state ui nerj mind, (which at tins time was iruiy awiu,,; and you will be able to form idea of her afflictions.

Finding , the Alterative doing her so much good, we increased the dose accor dini to the directions, and she continued to improve daily, until finally she was RESTORED TO HE VLTU, IN BODY AS ,WELL AS -IN mind: f I hope you will delay nd time in laying this before the public, as I am willing to be qualified at any time to the truth of the above statement, and that it was your Al terative which cured lier. . l Bedford above Marlboro Street.

THE LATE JESSE SPEIGHT. Mr. Foote, of Mississippi, in his recent .lni,v in tha Senate at the United States. ! on the occasion of announcing the death of Gen. Jesse Speight, spoke as follows: "Jesse Speight was born in the County of Greene, and State of North Carolina, a few years anterior to the close of the last century," where he continued uninterrupt edly to reside, Until i his removal to the State of Mississippi, in the year 1837. Prior td his migration from the State of his nativity, he had officiated as a member of her Legislature, and had likewise sup plied material aid in he reformation of her organic law, as a prcrminent member of the Convention Which assembled for that pur pose in the year 1835. Before leaving Nortli Carolina, he had represented one of the Congressional Districts of the ancient Coram on wealth "in theother wing of this Capitol, for four consecutive terms, closine on the third of March, 1837; and Tarn as sured that his whole political; conduct at that critical 5 period of our national history was eminently creditable to himself, and satisfactory to "his constituents' After his removal to the West, he successively' rep resented a most intelligent a'nd" patriotic constituency., Iu;st innebr;ancli of our State Legislature,' and then in the other, and presiding over bothat different times', with such distinguished success asgreatly to elevate his " character as 'auLpub1i6 mari anl muUipIv the number of' his, admirers. From "the Presidency of the Mississippi Senate, he was elected to iai seat unon this 5. I k - S ... ....... . .

He was blessed with unusual sweetness and uniformity of temper; and the unceremonious cordiality of his man ners, rendered his society particularly a greeable and attractive. In domestic life he was strikingly amiable and exemplary, and his untinuly decease has brought sor row and disappointment to kind and inno cent hearts, which his living presence never failed to inspire with sentiments of buoyant . hope, and elastic gladness of spirit." ih. , From the 1Vthinrton Omnibus. lTI)L!C MEETING.

Failures tn ntngiariitiX is estimated! officially that during the year and four months between June 28, 1846, and No vember 5. 1847, Great Britain had to im port breadstuffs to the enormous amount of thirty three millions and a half of pounds sterling!- say one hundred and sixty -five miltions of dollars! It is little wonder that after such a draft upon the re sources of the country, there should be embarrassment, prostration, and convul sion. I! The whole number of failures in Greet Britain, from August 1st, 1847, to Jahua? ry 1st, 1848, five months, is about 200, far beyond twenty-four millions of pounds sterling. It is not wonderful that such an extensive bankruptcy in the short period of five months should cause a severe revul- sion The wonder rather is that the shock nas not oeen iar' greater.
