I'RESERVATION OF FOOD.
The saf: and economic. I pi eserva
tion of food, is of incalculable moment.
Our daily and indispensable nourishment
consists of organized vegetable and ani
mal substances, most of which ate ex
tremely liable to the chemical changes,
familiarly termed -fermenting,''souring,'
'tainting,' and 'roting.' 'egetables,
fruits, meats, butter, lard, eggs, and
grain all sut'er inniense injury, or are
wholly lost, by the natural decomposi
tion of their organized e.-ments. As
these products of the soil cannot be
gathered every day in the year as they
are needed by man, in the economy of
nature, the science of presei ing thenm
unimpaired by keening, should be stu
died by every one that likes good foot
and a plenty of it.
Without the aid of science, our natur.
al wit in pteserving food, is but lithl
better than that of squirrels, which lay
tip nuts and acorns in hollow trees fo
In this matter, we can take a use.fu
lesson from the honey bee ; for it wisely
seals up, so as perfectly to exclud:t tIn
air, i.ach little cell of comb as it is fillet
with delicious food. Without the pre
sence of atmospheric air, decomposi'ior
does not take place. 'Thus potted soup,
fish, fl'sh, milk and fruits hermetricall;

many years. The Fr.ench armies wer
accustomed to hunt fo'r these deposit

Tim DF.SERF CA~CTUs.-The Balti
imore Ftt terise it s a goodl joke that
was p iuved off ott an ilt] genat h-matn, on
All Fool's Day', whonse chief hobbies aire
botany atnd miineraltogv. In thie foirmer
department of natural history lie is qutite
an entthusist--and thiankfuilly, receives
from ship maser andl traivellers ani
r-tue specimtins thait may hr fo~ narded! to
hiit. T~is morniag he received a very
antique flower pot with sonmc v'ery
strange devices on it-this pbt con
tined a very rare specimen of the
Cactus,and was arccomtpantied byv a letter
purportine to he in the A. thaian, which
the con'.iderate forwarde~r of the vartiety
transbited ais follows:
Mr. S.: This is a rare snecimen of the
D se rt Cactus- which floturishies only
in a burnirig and sandv soil. It is indige
nous with the Arabian deserts, and once
in fifty years pirodluces a fl iming flowecr,
which throws out such excessive heat,
that the caravans frequently use thent Io
cook their imeals with.
The old gentlem-tn rubb'd his hands
in ecstacy at receivinig so valuable an
addi'ion to his alre'ady curiotus collec
tions. H1o examtined the platit with grett
scruitiny, and catlledl in a large number ol
his ftiends to admire it-thouh its ap
pearance wvas any thing hitt attractive.
Matny wvere the U arned opinions thean
ex,,ressed on the. plan and die rare
Ambhi n MS that accompanied it-:h'
Ilistorical and Boanicil Societies would
possess such at r are treasuire-when alas'
a little boy standing near pulled the
"Desett Cactus:, out of its mother earth,
and, lo! it proved be the tail of a rat!
Reflction for the Farners.--There
never was a class of people-more blessed
or more prosperous than the farmers of
the U. States now are. Their clops
are abundant and readily command cash
at good pt ices; while every necessary of
life which they wish to purchase, cspe
cially monufactired articles, was nevet
so cheap. Then the facilities of trans
portation and locomotion hase been
greatly increased and improved, and this
is another source of positive beneft to
the farmers. With these physical ben
efits, those of an intellectual and (moral
kin I have kept rapid pace.--Books have
been cheapened and multiplied incal
culably. Schools, especially those of a
high order, have inciensed, and churches
and lait hful ministers abound. Do you
think of these things as you ought?-And
are you striiing to take advantage of
them to improve' your moral, intellec
ttal, and physical condition to a greater
extent? Those who will art wisely will
maik., the most of these great blessings
every hiur, for they cannot expect them
to be so abundant, and besides, to in- I
prove them now ik he surest way to con..
tirnte them. One certain means of af
fectitng itmprovtnt among farmers is
what we have heretofore recommendted
-the ftormiing of clubs in cach neigh
borhood, for weekly evening meetings
f in the wiiter. It is not ncessary in
s these to confine yourselves entirely to
;'g: icltural dikcu4tms, but such tings
as have a collateral boat ing on agricul
inure, ntty occasi nally he profitably in
troduced; such as the goolgy. the botany
and the trborictnure of the coon iv; igor
should we consider the means of the
heart and mitd entirely out of place in
these evening discussions. B.at our hoin
ily must end.

Cheat andI grow rich.
1 .III1 has been the secret principle. of too
many of the Wholesale Dealers in Tea
tp to this time, and they have practised the
moost shameful imposition on the country mer
chant, without any fear of detection. But
a new era in the trade has coie: and the
Peken Tea Company claims the honor of its
i utroduction. They were the first to raise the
I3anner of Iteform, on which it has inscribed
the simple words,
"MP Lm TEXS AT HONEST PRICES."
A cunpleto revolution has beet, the conse
quetce. Let consumer, of Tea etierywhere
look at what we have done. '
1. We were the first to send them Teas that
used to be called too good for them before.
2. Ve have driven out of the market a vast
aimonntof trash, anl introduced abetter class ot
Teas ttan has yet ev.r been sold. Importers
of Tea often come to its to get for their own
use. and ihr their friends, the line 9ualities they
em flnd no where else.
3. We have reduced prices more than 25
per cent. both it !Slack and treen Teas. The
whole-sale giocers say we are ruining the
trade, and call us humabugs. This we have.
dneui already, and now see what we are ready
1. We will sell Teas by the single chest, half
chest. or 1.1 lbs. box, at the saute price that
wholesai'e grocers pay to the importers when
they buy by the hiiodied packages.
2. The wholes.de grocers always allows 13
or 1.1 lHs. ttre to did half chest. This is t cheat!
W e will nilow. in most insatces, 15 ir 16 lbs
tare on the same.
3. We hereby undertake to sell every kind
of Tca Lrom six to leveloc cents per pound claca
perthan the wholesale grocers do.
' How can you do 'this?" asks the country
merchant. This is our answer. We are con.
tent with 7 per cent. profit, instead of 25 atid
50 per cent. a la wholesale grocers.
An English liiporter lately boasted to us that
he could make mttre motiey by sending bad
Teas to the New York market than gnoil Tens
We are resolved to overthrow tbis fraud, and
nlow call upon agents in every town in the
United Sttes to come forwnrd and hny the
Teas irmported by the Pt-kin Tea Gompany;
and we pledge ourselves that ifin six months
they do not sell more Ten than the oldest and
largest dealers in the town, we will give them
our Te.t without charge. This is plain Eng
lish. antd cannot be misunderstood. We np
peal for testimony to the immense success of
our Agents in every part of the United States.

they can make money, and confer a benefit on

DR. JOEL BIANIIAW'S
LIVERI A D IF'SLCTIC
IN offering this valuable Medicine to the po.
IUple of S. Carolina for the relief and cure J
many diseases incident to a Sonthern climate,
I do not claim for it infallibility; neither do!
say it will cure all diseases. But in
CHRONIC LIVER AFFECTIONS
I can confidently advise and recommend its
use, from r-y personal observation and' use 'of
the article in my own practice. This article is
fiavorably received wherever it has beer. used.
1 am allowed to refer to Mr. George Heard of
Troup. Mr John Warren of Columbus, Mr.
McAbfee of Cobb, Mr. Asbury Hull of Athens,
Mr. William H. Terrell of Putnam. Rev'd.
John E. Dawson of Lagrange; to which a
great umber of Games might be added, -who
bear their testimony to its value.
ifHabitual costiveness is fotund very frequently
connected with feeble eonstitutions, and..per
sons of sedentary habits, which often exert a
very urnfuomable influence npon the general
haehh of the subject; and is particularly mani
tested by a re'stless and desponding state of the:
mind, irregular if not a loss of appetite. For
thi.s condition of the system. this article inconfi
dently recommended with the positave assur
aaace that if the dose is properly adjusted, sosasV
not to amove the bnwels ton actively, reliefmay
be relied on, without any, even the least of the
unpleasant consequences, resulting from the
use of the common purging medicines usually
resorted to. This article will be found to act
as a pleasant eordi:al and tonic, restoring the
appetite, and at the same time fulfilling every
indication that the common purging medicines
are designed to effect.
There are some constitutions liable to regu
lar attacks of Bilious fever almost every fall,
to such, I recommend the use of this Medicine,
beginning at least by the middle of May, or first.
Many persons whose Digestive organs ar
feeble, uften experience a sense of fullness.
weight, and oppression, about the stomach af
ter eating-in such cases a dose of this medi
cine will often afford immediate relief.
Pregnant women often suffer from hear
barn and costiveness, they may use the article -
without the least danger and with great benefit,
I sick or nervous head-ache, it is a most vale
I conld append a long list of certificates, but
forbear, prelerring to rely on the virtues of the
medicine to sustain itself. The medicine is-a
gentle and certain cathartic tonic and sudorific.
