IRON HOOPS AND TIES
FOR COTTON BALES.
Price l cents per Totund-25 per cent, less than
NY one considering the advantages of Iron
over Rope as a material for binding cotton bales
will be surprised that it has not been adopted,
long since. In its security against fire there is an
overwhelmning reason for its adoption.
The Presses in the Seaport Cities have been the
main causeof its not being generally adopted; but,
now that objection is removed generally, and the
Or'.~nar3 Pr0ess, the largest in N. 0., give it the pre
ference over rope. The Fassmann Iron Hoop and
Tie is the improvement of one of the proprietors,
and is adopted from the fact, that it is found after
long experimcut, to combine the greatest merits in
simplicity and facility of application of any one
yet made. It is so prepared as to require no change
for .ecompressing. Thus obviating the only re
mainingdiiliculty at the sea board cities.
The hoops are sent of any length'from eight to
ten feet and a full guarantee given that neither the
Ties nor Hoops shall break. And further, that all
cotton bound in them shall be received on the same
terms, at the Orleans Press as rope bound cotton.
The weight per bale is about the same as Rope,
at one paounl more or la- - - -
To show thd opinion Ship Masters have of it, we
Sgive the following, among numerous commenda
tions we have;
The undersigned masters of vessels having had
cotton compressed withFassmann'snew Iron Hoops
and Ties, hereby recommend the same. The bales
being well compressed, and the buttons or hoops
never break when thrown down in the Ship's hold
or when stowed:

The price of Hoops and Ties at N. O., is 6 cents
per pound, and all orders will receive prompt at
tention. Liberal deductions made to merchant's
for city acceptance. F. BELCHER, AGoX.

offers his Professional services to such of the ea..i

ficial teeth, and used the same in his praetice'ft
some time, with perfect success in every calsehe
unhesitatingly recommends it to all who may re
quire Dental substitutes. This process has many :
advantages which cannot be attained by say of
the old methods, while no other has any adfan

beauty, he challenges for it a comparison with,fay
known process for mounting artificial-teeth.
