NEW 0?LEANS, November SC-COTTON-The market
opened this morning with a restricted inquiry, and con?
tinued duU and drooping throughout the day. The of?
ferings were quite liberal, and factors were evidently
anxious to realize, the majority of them being disposed
to accept reduced rates, but buyers generally evinced i
little desire to operate, in anticipation of increased weak?
ness. Hence the sales were to a limited extent, compris?
ing only 2400 bales, ten brokers participating in the bnsi

parties holding that, in some instances, holders submit?
ted to a larger reduction.

The loan market is easy at 5a6 per cont, for accommo?

part of capitalists to discriminate against all but the
choicest bills and the shorter dates.
The stock market is irregular. Governments are bet?

Boston Dry Goods Market.
BOSTON, December 1.-The past week has been a ver
quiet and uninteresting one as regards the dry good
trade, as both buyers and sellers have been content t
wait for some development in regard to the currency an
general values, which should give them a clue to th
future course of trade. The recurrence of an importai
holiday has also tended to render all parties Indifferent i
But the prospect, which was decidedly blue at the clos
of last week, has apparently brightened a little with tb
reaction Lin goW and increased firmness of raw nu
terial, and both manufacturers and dealers are in betti
spirits, consoling themselves with the plausible bell?
that both cotton and woollen goods have at lengt
touched bottom. Consumers will also begin to think e
pretty soon, when winter sets in with a touch of bis gem
ino hyperborean quality, and buyers of goods all rug
into the market together, making a clean sweep of stool
in the hands of distributors. But as they will only suj
ply themselves on compulsion, holders must be contei
to await the compelling causes, when they will psrhst
be able to make up for past deficiencies in trade.
We have co change to make in quotations for leadln
styles of cottons, which are fully as firm as last noted,
though the transactions for the waok have been very
light. Standard brown sheetings are quiet at 21c, though
some makes are held above that figure without buyers.
Fino brown sheetings are selling moderately at the slight
reduction noted last week; but, with increased confi
dance on tho part of holders, there is no disposition to
press sales. We quote Waucantuck canoes at 25c; Pep
perell Es, 23c; do Ks, 21c; Great Falls Ms, 20c; Forest
As, 18c. Bleached goods are dull, with a considerable
over-production, and prices are fully as low as last
quoted. We quote Androscoggin and Hills 4-4 at 30c;

The print market is rather depressed, and the leading
brands are jobbing at a shade lower prices, which must
necessitate a littlo concession on tho part of agents. Wo

A FEW WORDS OF COMMON
How few there aro who are not subject to some affection
of the lungs or respiratory organs, who, by neglecting
premonitory symptoms, aggravate thc complaint, until
disease strikes its shafts, causiug inexpressible torture
of the patient, and anxiety and distress to friends. "Only
a cold!" "A slight sore throat!" is the heedless remark
of many when so affected. Yea ; "Only a cold," was the
thoughtless expression of thousands whom Death has
marked for his prey.
Forewarned-Forearmed ! should be the motto forevor
in the minds of all subject to Coughs, Colds, Catarrh, or
Influenza. Words of advice should be heeded by all suf?
fering from Asthma, Bronchitis, Consumption. Relief is
within their reach; and, if neglected, fatal consequences
ensue-a life of misery-a daily, hourly struggle for ex?
istence. A contest in which there can be bnt one victor
Doos lt not appal the strongest mind, to think of the
result caused by neglect? Then why delay? What ex?
cuse can be offered, when timely warning is sounded in
your ears? When the danger is pointed out, whynot
avoid it? MABSDEN'S PECTOBAL BALM has been used
with success in nearly a miDlion of cases, and is endorsed
by the Medical Faculty as the most prompt and effica?
cious remedy that scientific research has discovered, to
relieve and cure all cases of Coughs, Colds, Influenza,
and Consumption, if the case is not beyond all hope.
Even when the sufferer is in the last stages, he will find
reliof by using this preparation. One bottle will con?
vince the most Incredulous, that the merits of this prepa?
ration are by no means exaggerated; in fact, fall far short
of the eulogies bestowed upon it by thousands who have
been cured by its timely use. A guarantee accompanies
each bottle and dealers are instructed in every instance
to refund the money when this preparation fails to re?

OPINIONS OF THE PRESS.
The Louisville Journal says : " The testimonials which
Dr. Gardner presents to the public could never have been
obtained, except by the display of great skill and learn
.ing in his profession. One thing especially commendable
in the Doctor's practice is, that he will not attempt an
incurable disease for the sake of a fee, but frankly tells
the patient whether he can be cured or not.. We cheer?
fully recommend Dr. Gardner to the attention of all our
friends who may be suffering from diseases of the eya
The Richmond Times says : "We have no hesitation in
saying that Dr. Gardner is the most scientific and suc?
cessful eye and ear surgeon in this country."
Dr. Gardner's treatment of the eye and ear is wonder?
We feel justified in recommending Dr. Gardner to
those suffering from diseases of the eye and ear.
We can safely and cordially recommend Dr. Gar?Ger,
who will fulfill all he undertakes to perform.
! The New Orleans True Delta says : "We can safely
; recommend Dr. Gardner as a successful operator on th?
eye and ear. He will not undertake to treat a case unless
a cure can bo effected.
The Wheeling Register says : "Dr. Gardner is one of
the most successful Oculists and Aurista in the countay.
We advise those suiTeviug from the diseases of the eye
and ear to consult him."
