The Way Charlotte Advertises.
Wo yesterday counted up and find
that merchants and other businets
men of 'bhrlbtte have now advertiso-.
k ments running in twenty papers pub
lished outside of Charlotte ; and,
there are several weekly papers pub
e lished in this sdotion of the State,
and upper South Carolina, which we
have now at hand, in which we think
Charlotte advertisements are appear.
And by this liberty in advertise
ing, Charlotte is drawing frdtn the
upper c)unties of this State, almost
all the business that formerly went
to Col unibia and Charleston. And
we say further, during the whole of
the past suniner Ch irlotto has not
-su1ffecrelI from dullness of businrss,
while Columibia, in particular, has
been almost at at stand still in all her
business interests. 'It is strong testi.
niony 'in fa'or of liberal advertising.
We have received more patronage
froim Charlotte irchan'; in th ree
nonths, t'ian we h.ve from Columbia
in four years, and of course, we -have
reason for speakirg well and often of
Charlotte ; and every train from the
Air Line Railroad bteings evidence of b
w-here the tra.ding of our pe.Qple is t
