of the daily palers as the result of uimerous

A Sign.-An exchange paper says that the
biest sign a dry goods merchant can raise in the
West ins order to make a ready sale for his
goods is "NOT M ARRIED-"
The suggestion is pretty good; but it does not
go far etnough. The following, written utpon a
sign in a New England village, was better:
"Dry Goods. By JIohna Bigelow; who scishes

The Cultivator was established to improvi

there is one thing more than another, which it
this country gives a uln stiperiority over hi!
fellow men, it is knowledge ; and this knowl
edge,-knowledge which is as essential to tih
success of the fatriner as of other men, it is th
design ofthe Cultivator to aid in imparting.
In taking charge of the Cultivator, the Edi

various coalitions and combinations of bank
era, speculators, and stockjobbers, which exisi
in our country, are of deadly louility to 01t
free institutioni--tbat the' frightful encroach

ists, among a certain class,, a determination to
doom to utter extinction that Liberty whici
t was purchased by our father's blood-we nre
induced to appeal-to our fellow-citizens of thi
yet free Republic, to aid its in the circulation of
a paper which shall unremittingly oppose thes
That tbiere exists at this crisiq of our nationa
affairs an absolute necessity for a work of this
kind-a paper which shall ioolly; faithfully
fearlessly, and perseveringly oppose and ex
pose the dangerons schemes of the federal banl
party-will not be doubted by any who an
- blessed with season. Such shall be the enc
and aim of the present publication. . It.will ad
r vocate a thorough, radical, and completerefor
in our present paper promuise-to-pay4Unoe3
system, which enables a privileged rEw topr=
dollirs, while the hard-working MAN I Ue COM
. pelted to earn them; enabling rich drones 14
. exchange strips of brown paper with a picturi
engraved upon it, for houses, lands, labor, &c
Believing that paper-money corporations ar
the most dangetons forms of tyranny upon the
face of the earth, we shall devote our eniergreg
to open the eyes of the public to a sense ofthleil
I baneful influence. The Tariff, too-anothei
invention of the idle to hre in laxtrf at he es
pense of industry-will be undeviatingly op
posed. Internal Improvements by the Gener
al Government, a National Batik in any possi
ble form, will he handled withoutgloves. Tho
fanatical crew of Abolition deiagogues wh<
would desolate our sunny fields and crimeon
on hearth-sides with hntoait gore, will be deal
with according to strict juslice. Indeed, nc
r possible exertii shall be spared to. make the
r Reformer, in all respects, richly deserving the
- generous support of every friend of politics
t liberty. The iterest and active exertimis a
