TO THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH
Kephart's Patent Fruit' and Veeetable
fleat, air, and moisture are the three
agents of decomposition. By excluding
these, the most delicate fruits, vegetabics,
&c. can be preserved with all their original
qualities and freshness for any desirable
p-r'od. - These three destructive agents
can he almost entirely excluded in the
Preserver, or sufficiently so to preserve,
as long as desired. all the most palatable
fruits and vegetables of our land.
It is applicable to the preservation of al
most every thing of a perishable nature.
All descriptions of roots, such as the sweet
and Irish potato, turnips. beets, carrots.
onions, &c. can be preserved twelve
months, retaining all their qualities and
freshness as when first taken from the
soil; their vegetating power being totally
suspended by the low temperature of the
apartment in which they are kept.
We may add to these the fruits of the
orchard, embracing the finest and most
delicate verietics of apples and pears,
wnich, if placed in the Preserver soon
after being plucked from the tree, can be
had at all seasons with lI their excellen
ces remaining. To these twny be added
the productions of foreign orchards, viz:
oranges and lemotis, which rank high
among the list of luxuries. and which
often perish io large quantities during the
mildness of spring and heat of summer.
Another itt:n of consideratiotn is dried
fruits, as dried apples and peaches, raisins,
figs. prunes &t. all of which, if kept in
thi" Preserver. wall rerain their brighitiess
and freshness without any loss in weight
or bulk. and free from the depredations of
insects. Anothct item of no small inpor
lance. is bacon, which, if put in imnedi
ately after smoking, will, by the action of
the cold, become firm and solid, retaining
nil the brightness and sweetness of new
bacon and free from the injuries of insects
which immediately become torpid.
Other. articles of magnitude might be
- enumerated, such as prevent the fermenta
tion of sweet cider, preservation of butter,
lard. eggs, &c.
A very important advantago of this
method, over all other modes of preserving
fruits, &c., arises from the fact, that fruits,
vegetables, &c. may be placed in the Pre
server as soon as taken from the tree or
earth, thereby subjecting these articles at
once, to a degree of cold and dryness,
which immediately arrest the ripening or
mellowing process, (w hich chemists de
note as the saccharine fermentation, and
almost totolly checked by a low tumpera.
ture.) and enabling the fruit when taken
out in the spring or summer, to be trans
ported-or shipped with as little risk as
when-first taken from the orchard ; it hav
ing vet to undergo the ripening or mellow.
ing.process before the rotting follows.
The usual plan of leaving fruits, &c.
exposed to the mild climate of the fall,
and .to the.warmth and dampness of the
earth in winter, when buried, so mellows
and-ripensit, that t hen removed from the
b or cellar, at the close of the season,
ihes imnedately. This, however,
wol notbe,tbe' result if the ripening
process hadibeeta suspended; the fruit
having to undergo.that process when again
exposed to the heat of spring and summer,
before finally perishing.
The niformity and coldness of the
temperature, provenots evaporation from
fruits, roots, &c. the consequence of which
i,s'those articles retain all their juices as
wIken first put in. So also with driedl
fruits, bacon, &c. which will not diminish
either in bulk or weight.
Ia the construction of a Preserver there
are no limits to its dimensions, one of one
hunt'red thcitsand bushels operates as per.
fectly,-as one containing but one hundred
buishels The same tmay be said of its
depth, thirty feet in depth acts similar to
one of but half the depth ; such is the
tendency of the cold air, in contact with
the ice floor. 'to fall to the bottom, attd the
wvarm to arise, that half a degree difer
ence in temperaturte does not exist bet we'en
the top and botto-n. All that is r qttired
is to put the articles into barrels or ttox's,
place thtem in the Preserver on top of e-acht
other with a space of one intch between
each tiqr of boxes, extending from top to
hot t'im, through whicht space the cold air
will dlesenid, keeping the wihole mass of
fruti', &c. at a temperature sullicienitly
cold toi arrest decomposition.
The Preserver is nout only adapted to all
countries ni here ice attd fruit are alternate
ly produced, btut in the present age, catn lie
used to great advantage at all southernt
points, where ice has now become ant arti
clat of commterce. Ice is sellom shipped
to anty of the southern ports, in smaller
cargoes than from one hundred to four
hundred tons each. Some building must
be provided to receive this; for which the
. ce apartment, ini connection with tho
Preserver, woutld lie most appropriatte;
thIts alue it~ a dloutble purpoese, thait of
settling the ice at theo tolp, while o: the,
same time, preser.vitng the fruit, &c.
It will be found upon examitnation, thtat
this plant appears to lbe the only otne, by
which fru,it, &c. cab be kept during all
seasons of the year at thte samte uniform
temperature, and as coldi as dare be
desired, and without anty danger of
Boxes and barrels of fruit may be placed
over the surface of ice ini an ordinary ice
house, but the consequence will be, that
all the heat of spring, summer and autumn,
must first pass through those barrels and
boxes, before it can reach the ice below to.
be takrea up. In addition to this, fruit in
that position will become frozen so soon as
frost makes its appearance ; the strata of
ice below, and the action of the frost with
out, sootn ruining all,
Other arguments. if reqtrired, might be
advanced to prove that the hecr.in de
scribed Fruit andt Vegetable Preserver, is
the only meatns to accomplish the purpose
designed, ntnd furnish td mankinid, at all
seasons, the richest and rarest varieties of
fruits and vegetable.
Th'e success of this invention is based
upon the following philosophical and
chemical truths, and to -which tho attent
tiot,-of. all professing a knowledge of those
sciences are invited.
Does not cold air descend and warm air I
ascend ? if so (after almost totally ex
and sides of the Preserver by the use of
saw-dust, charcoal, &c.) must not the
whole interior or fruit rbom' remain at or
near the temperature of toe fl.or on which
the ice rests. Does not fruit, after being
pickrd from the tree, undergo the saccha
rine fermentation, or what is known as the
mellowing or ripening process, after which
is it not often followed by one or more of
the other fermentations ? viz: vinous,
acetous and putrefactive fermentation,
which completes the rotting process? Ir
so. does not a temperature of 33deg. or34
deg. almost totally arrest all these fermen
tations? Does not a temperature of 34
'deg. suspend the vegetating power of all
vegetables, such as roots, &c.? If these
are answered in the aflirmative, it is evi
(lent that the Preserver will accomplish all
that it is designed to accomplish.

public may satisfy themselves of the facts

Colton Raising and Spinning Con
trasted.-The great necessity for a change
in our industrial pursuit, is becoming every
day more al more evident. Where it
once was ex ernely profitable to grow this
staple, planters now come near starving in
persisting in its culture. A correspondent
of the Alabama Planter, says :
Cotton raising is ra'ther an uncertain
atnd uitprofitahle ca!ling It is a little like
gold digging, delusive : yet I do not know
what else to engage in, unless I build a
factory. I have water power near at
hand sufficient to drive one or two thou
sands spindles. From what I can learn.
manufacturing cotton is far more profitable
than raising it. In fact, if a house with
which I have correspondence, makes cor
rect statement, a factory costing 15 to
20.000 dollars would pay fur itself in
twelve or eighteen months. If you can
send me a partner with funds, I should be
tempted to try the expnriment.
Low Price of Rail Road Iron.-The
Boston Traveller says, that contracts for
Rail Road Iron, delivered in Boston, duty
and all charges-paid, can be made in Eng
land at $20 per ton. If our up country
Rail Roads can purchase their Iroo before
a rise takes place, the enterprizes will be
safe. The northern manufacturers of
Rail Road Iron, say that no sum short of
$70 per ton will pay the manufuctuter in
this country. and many declare that $75
will leave but little profits.

Cheat and grow rich.
r HIS has been the secret principle of!too'
many .of the Wholesale Denlers'in Tea
up to this time, and they have practioed'-th.
-nust shameful imposition .on the country mer.
chant, without any foar. of.detection... -B.
a new era in the trade has come, an4.tte.
Pek. !Tea Company claims-the.honor-of?its
introduction. They were the first to raise the
Banner of teform, on which it has irsrribed
the simple words,' '
PUIRE TEAS AT HONEST PRICES."
A coinplet~ revolution has bee, the Wetieos
quen.ce. Let cousumera of Tea everywhere
look at what we have done. . - - -.,i
1. We a ere the first top send them Teas thai
used to be called too good for them before. ,
2. We have driven out of the market a vast
amount,of trash, and introduced a better class Af
Tens than has yet ever been sold. Impoi'r
of Tea often come to us to get for their'bva
use, and for'their friends, the fine qualities they
can find no'where else. -
3. We have reduced prices more than. 25 -
per cent. both ii Black and Green Teas. IS
whole sale gtocers say we are rninitig the
trade, and call us humbugs. This we htse
done already, and now see what we ire.eaj -
to do. -
1. We will sell Teas by the single cbest,iaij'
chest, or 14 lbs. box, at the same 'price that"r
wholesale grocers pay to the importers 'when
they buy by the hundied packages. r. --
2. The wholesale grocers always allows:13
or 14 lbs. tare to the half chest. This is a cheatl
We will allow. in most instancss,15tr 1lbs.
tare on the same. t
3. We hereby undertake to-selveryIug4
of Tea from six to weilve cents per pound TI:
per than the wholesale grocers do.
"How can you do this?" asks the conin
merchant. This is our answer. We are cg.,
tent with 7 per cent. profit, instead of 25 abd
50 per cent. a la wholesale grocers.
An English Importer lately boasted to osbiat
he could make more money by.sending "bad
Teas to the New York market than goo Tas;
We are resolved to overtht,w this rrau, a,
now call upon agents in every.; town ip.tler
United States to come forward and buy the
Teas imported by the Pekin Tea Gompln.;
and we pledge ourselves that if in 'six monum,
they do not sell more Tea than the oldest -and
