Love and the Laurel.
[From WorlxioorWt "Sus.ian Fugitive."]
'lis ?nue in ancient minstrelsy
That Pb cc bu i wont tc wear
The leaves of any pleasant tree
Around his golden hair;
Till Daphne, desperate with pursuit
Of his imperious love,
At her own prayer transformed, took root,
A laurel in the grove.
Then did the Penitent adorn
His brow with laurel preen ;
And 'mid his bright locks never ?horn
* No meaner leaf was seen;
And poets sac?, through every age,
About their temples wound
Tu? bay; and conquerors thanked thc gods,
Will? laqr?l chaplets crowned.
Into the mists of fabling Time
So far i uns back the praise
Of Beauty, that diidains to climb
Along forbidden ways;
That scorns temptation; power defies
Where mutual love is cot;
And to the tomb for rescue flies
When life would be a blot

Columbus Cotton Market.
COLUMBUS, December IL-COTTON-Until the
last two days, and since Saturday, our market has
witnessed a mutual stand off between buyers and
sellers. Holders refused to accept the ruling rates,
and buyers would not yield. The unfavorable ad?
vices from abroad depressed everylkins-. On Wed?
nesday, however, the market revived, and a number
of orders have been filled. Planters still evince a
disposition to hold back for higher figures, and only
bring in sufficient cotton to pay current expenses.
Many of our lea ling commission merchants do not
accept the high estimates of tho present crop, and
still think the total receipts will not equal those of
last seas m. At this point, judging from previous
yean, half of the crop to be re elved here has arriv?
ed. The majority ot the cotton brought by rall and
river is held from the market, but nearly all the
wagon cott >n is ?old on tho stre <t
On Saturday Northern middlings were dull at 22c,

fa] ing off, as compared wiib 1667, of 88 513 bales,
no ^withstanding the inducements of the re munera
ti\ a ^rl?os. and the good condition of the rivers and
roads. Our information fr m these places leads us
to believe that the crops of Alabama, Georgia and
South Carolina will be at least ono quarter lese than
last year. At Memphis the excess is about 17,000
bales BO far. For the weeks ending 20th and 27ch j
December, 1867, the receipts weie 199,112 bales, of j
which 106,364 bales were received at Mobile, Savan?

for the next fortnight will be less than the corres?
ponding petiod last year. New Orleans and Galves?

Une Bottle of Resolvent Is Better Thar,
Ten Large Bottles of thc Advertised
Sarsaparillas, or Direct Diuretic [tem
PHYSICIANS wonder at the extraordinary power or
RADWA?'S RENOVATING RESOLVENT in curing
the worst lonas of Scrofulous, Syphiloid, Chronic
Skin Diseases, and its marvelous power in resolving
calculons concretions, affording immediate relief and
contcqucnt cure of Diseases of the Sidney, Bladder,
Liver, Lungs, Pancreas, Spleen. Its rapid influence
in thc cure of Diabetes, Incontinence cr scanty, tur.
hid, albuminous, cloudy urine; tts almost instant ef?
ficacy in stopping itching and painful discharge of.
urmo, and il? singular power in curing discharges
from the Uterus aud Urethra, L-riicorruosa, Dloody
Urine, and ether unhealthy and weakening dis?
charges;-and inquire wherein the SARSAPARIL
LIAN T; '.cd in the Renovating Resolvent differs ti om
ordina ry Sarsaparillas ! Sarstparilhan is the only
principle in Sarsaparilla that possesses curative
properties; all other ports of the root ere inert and
useless. One ounce of the extract obtained under
Dr. Radway'snew process for extracting the curativo
properties from vegetable substances, contains moro
of thc true principle of cure than twenty pounds cf
the ordinary roots.
SARSAPARILLIAN it only one of the ingredients
that forms this truly wonderful medicine; ondit is
the only compensating remedy that communicates
its purifying, cleansiocr and reinvigorating proper?
ties through the BLOOD, SWEAT, URINE, and
other secretions, securing a harmonious functional
action of every depraved organ aud gland in the sys?
tem, it tho blood is corrupt, tho Resolvent will
make it pure. If the Lum?? aro ulcerated and torc,
secreting thick phlegm and prureiCDt matter, the
Resolvent will loosen this deposit and repair the
wasting lung with sound and healthy material. If
thc Skin is covered with pimples, spots, pustule?.-,
sores, ulcers, Ac, the Resolvent wiU quickly rein ova
these annoyances. If mercury is deposited in the
bo'nc and bas accumulated rn tho system, the Re?
solvent will drive it ont If tho Throat or Bronchial
Glands arc ulcerated, the Resolvent will cure these
signs of an early waste. Direct remedies, possess?
ing only exclusive properties, ore hurtful, ss they
increase the functional secretions of on- organ by
suspending the constituent D?crottons of others;
hence, a compensating remedy like the Resolvent is
thc only means of a permanent euro.
BEAR IN MIND THAT EVERY PROF OP BLOOD
impregnated with the Resolvent and absorbed to.
supply thc waste of the body, will make pure, sound
and healthy flesh and fibre. The first dose that ia
taken commences its work of purification and in?
creasing the appetite and Jlesh.
