Seigfried, Pastor of Twelfth Bap. tilt ChurZ,h, Phi • flentlernen 1--I have recently been laboring under the distressing effects of indigestion, accompanied by a pros tration of the nervous system. Numerous remedies were recommended by friends, and some of them tested, but without relief. Your Hoot:band's German Bitters were rec• ommended by, persons who had tried them, and whose fa• curable mention of these Bitters induced rue to try theta. I must confess that I had an aversion to Patent Iledicin X from the "thousand and one quack "Bitten," whose o , ly airn seems to be to palm off sweetened and drugg liquor upon the community in a ely way, runt the tenden cy of which, I fear, is to make many a confirmed drunk ard. Upon harming that yours was ,really a medicinal preparation. I took it with happy efftlct. Its action, not only upon the stomach, but upon the riervous system, was prompt and grunfying. I feel that I av 4 derived great • d permanent benefit from the use riffrtent bottles. Very respectfully yours; W. D. SEIGFRIED, No. 25-I.Sharkamanun St. [From the Bev. E. D. Fendall. Assistant Editor Christian Cluonmle, Philada.l I have derived decided benefit from the use of Hoof land's.Gemma Bitters. and feel it my privilege to recom• mend them as a most valuaole tonic, to all who are suffer ing from general debilita or from diseases arising from de rangement of the liver. Yours truly, E. D. FEIDD.A.LL. From Rev. P. Merrige, I:iustor . of_tbf Passyuak Baptist cti ti, PlAladtLl From the many respectable recommendations given to Dr. hloodand's German Bitters, I was induced to give them a trial. After using se,ve,tal bottles I found them to beg good remedy fur debility, and a most excellent tonic for the stomach. D. MERRIGE. [Prorsteljeti7 Wm.

L%RK MERIDEN " Come, Mirk Meriden! don't settle down into an oldgrandfather before your time—a pretty wife'sjipretty thing, Mark, and a pretty house is a pretty thing, but hang it! one must hare a lit tle of life." Mark Meriden stood at his desk, giving a last look at his books, While Ben Sanford—the roguish —the merry—the song singing—the Ben of all Bens, was thus urging on hint, the claims of a projected frolic that evening. Now, Ben was precisely the messenger for such an embassy— there was fun in the magic twinkle of his blue eyes, and a world of waggery in the turn of his head, and a pair of broad roguish chinples that went merrily in and out of his cheeks every time he spoke, and lie Mid hold of Mares arm to drag hith away. But Mark shook otr his hand, a p.L finished summing tip a column offigures—hut - the blotting paper into the book; and the book into' its place. wiped his pen, and at last, turning to Ben. said: I thia I n m i l go this time." " Now, üby not ?" said Ben eagerly. - " Became—because," Said Mark, smilingly,. ‘.• because I have an.odd fancy that I should like the pleasure of Mrs. Meriden's company better this evening." -" Hang - - Mrs. Meriden—beg pardon. Mark— hang myself for saying so—but one, don't like hi see a fine fellow like you buried alive i—couir take a real wake up with us." " Thank you, Ben, but I haven't been asleep, and don't need to. So MI go home and see my wife," and thereat herturnitda resolute step home ward, as a well trained husband ought. " Now," says one of, our readers, " who was Mark Meriden t" You would not have asketrr giiod reader, if you had lived in the town, of when his name first appeared on the outside of one of its most fashionable shops, " Mark Meri den," surrounded by those haring easigns of grace and fashion so that young belles need not have their eyes turned oil from beholding it. • Every thing in the tasteful establighineut toff a well arranged business. and Mark himself, ire mirror of fashion. faultless in every article of costume, quick,atteutive, polite, was every day to be seen there winning •4 golden opinions from all sorts of people." Mark's shop became the resort for high ton—the fashionable exchange. the promenade of beauty and wealth who came there to be enlight ened as to the ways and means of disposing of their surplus revenue—to see and be seen. So attentive, polite and considerate was Mark, so profound his bows, so bright his eyes, so unex ceptionable his whiskers, that it might have proved a dangerous resort for ladies, had not a neat, tasteful house going up in the neighborhood been currently reported as the future residence of an already Mrs. Meriden, and in a few months the house, neatly finished, and' tastefully furnished, received the very lady who called herself to that effect. She was as truly refined and lovely woman as ever formed the centre flower in a domestic bouquet, and Mark might justly be par doned for having as good again opinion of himself for haring been fortunate enongh to se cure her. Mark bad an extensive circle of busines:_n pleasure acquaintances, for be had been one social Companionable sort, whose money generlry found its way out of his pocket in very fair pro portions to the rate it came hi. In short, he was given to clubs, oyster suppers, and now and then a wine party, and various othevsocial privileges for elevating one's spirits and depressing one's cash that abound in enlightened communities. 'But nevertheless, at the bottom of Mark's head there was a very substantial bump of a certain quality called common sense, a trait which, though it was never set down in any chart of phrenoloc), way very justly be called a faculty. 'and one, ton, which makes a great difference as the world goes. In consequence of being thus constituted, Mark, %hen he tolled 1 - n113250i in love with, and engaged to, a very pretty girl, began to reflect with more than ordinary seriousness on his habits, aa3s and mamwrs of .life. He also took an accurate survey of his business, formed an average estimate of his future income on tilt , soberest probabilities, and determined to live a little even within Thal. He also provided him self with a little account book, with which he in tended to live in habits of very close acquaintance, and in this book he designed to note down all the savings consequent upon the retrenchment of cer- Min little extras, before alluded to, in which he had been in the habit of pretty freely indulging Upon the present occasion it bad cost him something of an effort to say "no" for Mark was one of your easy "clever fellows" to whom the enunciation of this little syllable causes as much trouble as the gutterals of the Germans. Flow erer, when he came in sight of his -ptklor win dows. through which a bright fire was shining— v. him he entered and found the clean glowing hearth, the easy chair drawn up -in front, and a pair of embroidered slippers waiting, for him quite at their leisure, and, above all, vgTteg he read the quick glance of welcome in a pair of very bright eyes, Mark forgot all about Ben Sanford and all bachelor friends and allurements 14 hatever, and thought himself about the happiest fellow on earth. The evening passed off rapidly by the help of music, reading and a - little email talk of which newly married people generally find &supply, and the next morhing found Mark at early business hours with as steady a band and as cool a head as if there had been no such things as bachelor frolics in existence. Late in the afternoon, Ben .Sandford lounged. in to ogle a few of the ladies, and above all to ral ly Mar on losing ttirgloriousfon of the evening before. " Upon my word. Mark." be began. " we must hat e ou put _up fur Selectman, you are beconnug , so:extretuely ancient and venerable in )our ways; however, you are to be oxenged," he added," cir cumstances considered—female influence f—ah ! well, it's a fine affair, this marriage!" " Better TRY it, Mr. Saudford," said a bright,' saucy girl, who, with her laughing companions, were standing close by while Ben was speaking . . "Ah ! madam, the wherewithal!" said Elm, rolling up his-eyes with a tragic expression. some clever old fellow would be so obliging as to die now, and leave me n fen thousands—then, la dies! tau would see." "tut speaking of money;' said,:qatk,`74 hen - he saw the ladies busy over sow- laces he had Wit thrown on the counter--" w did your'glorioni fan cost you 7" "Pooh !--nothing! only a tgu _dollar bill, Eve nothing in my purse now,.yotikiiow!" "Nothing in your - pursi,it—not,an,citteozntuon incident utter these oceaWittV-aaid,Mark, laugh. ing.-- , „ '' . olo hang Wall," said Ben-=" totytrue! I eau get no remedy for this 'consumption of the purse,' .as old Falstaff says • however the world owes me and so, goai minming!" Ben Sandford was one of that class of young men of whom common report goes, that they eau do anything that they please, and who consider this point so well established that they dobot con sider it necessary to illustrate it by doing =any thing at all. He was n Lawyer of good,ttalents, and would have had an extensive not of losiness had he 'not been one of those kind of people who can never be found when wanted. His latv books and office saw far less of him than certain fash ionakk• places of resort, where his handsome per son and carious social accomplishments always secitred tsr him a stelcome reception. Ben had Amite little properly left him by his lather, just enough, as he used laughingly' to say, _"to keep ,him iu Owes and cologne water," and for the rest he seemed vastly contented, with, his -old maxim, "the world owes me a living," forgetting that the world cats sometime prove as poor a paymaster as the most fashionable young men go ing. • - But to return to Mark. \V Len he had settled his accounts at night, , 4e took from a pigeon hole in his desk the little bunk afore named, and.euter ed as follows: "To one real wake up, $10," Which being done, he locked his desk, and return ed once inure to Mrs. Meriden. _ Days flew on, and the-shop of Mark became increasingly popular, and still from time to time he was assailed by the kind -of 'temptatinn we hose described. Now it was "Mark, mt dear fellow, do join no in our trip to now, "Come, my old fellow, let us hate a spree at :" now it was the club, now the oyster supper—but still Mark wns invincible, and as one or another recounted the history of the scene, he silently committed the amount of expense to his little book. Yet was not 31ark synical or anew 'cial. His refusals though firm were good natur ed, nod though he could not he Alrayenbroad, yet he was unquestionably openhilida at tonne. No house had so warm a welcome—no dinner fa tile Could be M'ore bountifallor more ftoiflY open for the behixif orall gentlethei Optif,diiing out ordet--no tea table presented mcrgenexception able toast, and there was no evening lounge more easy, bOnie like and clieerfillthari Icahn snug par lors of Mark Meriden. They also gave evening patties; Wbee all ivas tasteful and well ordered; • and in fine, notwithstanding his short comings,- ' Mark was set down as a fine openhanded fellow== after all. • At the-end of the year, 11. cast up ; the ac. _ count in his 'little book, an. 'az might i l y aston ished'at its for with all his . eel of •the power of • numbers, be.had,ne idea that the twos and fives and tens and ones, which on greater or smaller - oceations bad found their way into his columns, -would amount to a sum .so considerable:, Mark I looked about him—the world ,was going well— his business machinery movingin exact touch and time—his' htliisie--where' was there a -prettier one I—where ifflace nore.- replete with every home drawleg enmfortl" Had ha lost anything in pleasure the year past 1 Mirk thought not,nrid therefore as he walked homeward be stepped in to thu bookseller's and ordered some books of su perb engravings fur Mrs. Meriden, and spoke to a gardener to send' sothe exdtiei; fur which he - had heard her express au admiration some even eveningi before. „ • That same evening came in Ben Sanford, as he expressed it, "in the very depths or indigo!" for young gentlemen whose worldly matters invaria bly go on wrong end foremost, will sometimes be found in the condition, however exuberant may their stock of animal spirits.- • "Pray, Ben, what is the matter?" said. Mark, ndly, as the latter strefeiied linnaelf 'at length. in an-ann chair, groaning audibly: ` "Ohl a bill.ions attack, Mr.tll--sboeinaker's bills tailor's bills! boarding bowie • bills all of. them sent for Nee- - Years' presents!—hand vin all!"

Ben glanceilut it im‘patiehtly—laughed when he read over the two or 'three first items, but Ids face lengthened as he proceeded, and Mark detected a sort of whistle of astonishment as he read the aim total. " Well, Mark!" he exclaimed,"whilt aconsid crate tnck this is of yours, to sit behind your counter so coolly netting doivn the' "cost and come too" of all our little frolics really it is ed ifying! How much you must have ebjoyed your superior discretion and forethough and Ben laughed, but: nbt with his usual glee. - '• lay, you mistake," said Mark. ." I kept this account merely to see what I had been in the habit of spendingsmyself, and as 'you and I have s ways been hand and glove in everything, it an swers equally well for you. It was only yester day that I summed up the account, and I assure you the result surprised Myself, and now, Ben, the sum here set down, and as muck more as you please is freely at, your disposal, to clear off old scores for the year, provided you will accept this little book as nislew Year's gift, and use it twelve mouths as I hay& dime, and if at the end of that time you are not ready to introduce me to Mrs. Sandford, I um much mistaken." Ben grasped his friend's hand, but then Mrs. Meriden prevented his reply. Mark, however. saw with satisfaction, that he put the book care fully in his vest pocket; and buttoned tip-his coat with the air of a man buttoning up a new resolu tion. When they parted for the night Mark'said with a sable, "In ease of billieus attacks, yell know where to send for medieine.r.-,Ben answered on ly by a fervent grasp of the hand, for his throat felt too full for him to answer.' Mark Meriden's book'answensd the-purpose admirably.. In less than two yearsllca Sandford Was the most popular lawyer in— s and as stead) a householder as you •thight wish to seet and, in conclusion, as this is tt lady's-story, we will just ask our lady readers their opinion on one point, and it is this: If Mrs. Meriden bad been a woman who under stood what is called " catching r a beau," better than securing a husband, if she bad never, curled her hair except for coinpany, 'arid theakht it a de gradation to know how •to make her house cum fortable, would these things have happened ?
