Charleston is again a market for the pur?
chase of goods; and in new of the early
opening of tho Spring Trade, we beg to
solicit the resumption of the patronage so
hbcrally extended to this market in the
past. Wc are aware that many old and
respected finns will be missod from our
number, but many familiar names will he
found in new associations, ready to supply
the wants of the trade as of yore, and other
old and new firms will be added to our
number at an early day.

been universally adopted in all tho North?

to adopt a like Bystem as the only sate one
on which to conduct business," and the

fits and quick returns will be the rule, and
under its working we hope not only to
restore to our ancient city its former pros?
perity, but to extend her" trade to the full
extent of thc capabilities her excellent
geographical position and natural advan?
tages afford. Our interest and ambition
