EUROFEAN DEMAND FOR GRAIN.
The New York World, of tho 13th,
Great Britain is renewing her de?
mands upon us for grain. In the
past two days, about a quarter of a
million bushels have been shipped,
embracing large quantities of barley
and peas, with some -wheat, corn and
oats. Probably our whole stock of
grain in this market does not exceed
twelve million bushels; navigation is
now closed for the season; receipts
for some months will be less than the
requirements for home consumption;
and it follows that this extraordinary
shipping demand, if continued, will
soon be seriously felt.
A company of black soldiers are
now organizing in Philadelphia to
emigrate" to Liberia. The American
Colonization Society has purchased a
clipper ship of one thousaud tons
for the transportation of the soldiers.
Applications for emigration are daily

THIRTY LINES OF COMMON
SENSE.-Header, having glanced over thc
editorials and the news in this jo rnal,you
turn to the advertisements, saying to your?
self, "These aro published by the writers
to servo their own interests." Perhaps so.
But it is no less true that it concerns your
interests to read these thirty lines. If yon
aro healthy, it is presumed you wish to
continue so. If sick, of course you desire
to be relieved. In either case, it is impor?
tant to you to know that HOSTETTER'S
BITTERS are the safest, surest and best
tonic and alterative ever advertised in any
country. This is a period of the year when
the strongest need an invigorant, for the
oppressive heat drains the system of
strength falter than tho most potent and
vigorous organization can recruit it. There?
fore, as a preservative of health-as a pro?
tection against the devitalizing action of
heat and the malaria it produces-you
should sustain tho good constitution and
sound stamina with which 'nature has
blessed you with this peerless Vegetable
It can scarcely be necessary to urge upon
the weak and ailing the importance of ac?
quiring by safe means tho strength which
unassisted nature doilies them. All who
are thus circumstanced are invited to give
the Bitters a trial. Before they have taken
the elixir three days, in conformity with
tho directions, they will acknowledge with
gratitude its genial operation. They will
lind that it imparts mental as well as nerv?
ous energy, and regulates all the internal
functions admirably. This is tho expe?
rience of the debilitated and depressed,
and in making these statements tho pro?
prietors only echo the language of innu?
merable testimonials. Dec IS to"
