MONSTER PETITION.-The New Or?
leans Crescent publishes a petition to
the Congress of the United States,
for the repeal of the Reconstruction
Acta of Congress, to be signed by
the whole people of the South. The
Crescent advises that it should be
signed generally' by the people of
both the North and the South. As a
matter of public interest, at the pre?
sent time, we subjoin the petition:
7b His Excellency the President and
the Senators and Representatives of
the United States Congress:
The undersigned, citizens of the
State of Louisiana, respectfully re?
present that the political develop?
ments of the past few months have
demonstrated the faot that the Re?
construction Acts of Congress will, if
persisted in, produce, a conflict of
races whioh will result in the desola?
tion of the country, and the serious,
if not irreparable injury of both races
in the Southern States.
That the negroes of this State are
organized into seoret bands, termed
"Loyal Leagues," sworn and com?
bined against their former owners
and citizens of the State, in order to
obtain control of the Government.
That this credulous race have been
deluded by designing men into the
belief that the property of the white
citizens of the State will be divided
That, under these demoralizing in?
fluences, they ore daily refusing to
fulfill their contracts, or labor for the
support of themselves or their fami?
That, in consequence of this de?
moralization, planting in this State
has resulted in the ruinons failure of
a large majority of our planters, and,
of course, in the necessity of its
' That, before the close of the pre?
sent year, the negroes, with but few
exceptions, will have consumed or
wasted their wages, or share of the
crop, and be destitute of the meuns
of subsiste nee.
That the white race will be com
?ielled to limit their planting to the
abor of their own families, while the
negroes will not have the means, if
they had the capacity, to plant on
their own account.
Under these circumstances, famine,
with nil its attendant horrors, must
soon come upon this improvident
In view of these impending calami?
ties, the undersigned would earnestly
appeal to the President and Congress
to give prompt attention to this
vitally important matter, and provide
immediately such remedy as in their
wisdom can be devised, to avert the
ruin which, unless arrested, must
speedily come upon us.
SuaoEsnoN TO RAILKOAD COMPA?
NIES-At tho recent railroad slaughter
in Ohio, lives wero needlessly lost
because there wero no means of
breaking open the burning ears. A
correspondent of the Cincinnati Com?
mercial suggests that hereafter every
passenger car be provided with u
number of axes, so that in cone of a
"smash up," tho victima should not
be allowed to perish for want of means
to extricate themselves. This seems
to be a good suggestion and ono
easily carried out.
Hoo CHOLERA.-We learn from
various parts of the District that this
disease is very prevalent, playiug
havoc generally with the swine
species. Farmers have resorted to
many remedies, but all to no avail.
In some neighborhoods persons have
lost their whole stock. Parties pur?

that it is sound, and purchase only
from responsible gentlemen.

Gentlemen: I am weh pleased with the
result of the use of the ''Double Relined
Poudrotto" on my crops. I tried it on both
oorrTand cotton, and am satisfied whorovor
it was ^applied tho yield was more than
double what it would have been without it.
I regret exceedingly my not using it more
extensively tho present year, but will try
to makeup my loss by purchasing a larger
quantity next spring. I regard it as the
cheapest, most reliable, and easiest man?
aged fertilizer within my knowledge, and
cheerfully recommend it law I h?vo t ried it ?
thoroughly) to the farmers of this section,
and particularly to those planting cotton,
from the fact of its causing 'it to mature
from ten days to two weeks earlier than it
would without tba uso of thc Poudrette. I
also used it on mv garden, and found it of
much benefit to ail kinds of plants. Very
respectfully, Ac. O. 8. OGLESBY.

Martin, of Hampden. Sidney College,

Sir: Tho Double Refined Poudrette I
bo' " two other parties in connection
wit., sell-one of them used it on cotton
and n, and thinks it answered finely;
theo r put it on cotton, on very poor
ground, and thinks it doubled his crop. I
used it on corn. It answered finely, and
was thought by tho hand that cultivated
the crop to be "fully oqual to Rhode's Super
Phosphate. I also used it on about an
acre of cotton, and I am clearly of opinion
that it is the best and cheapest fertilizer
in use, and I expect to order several tons
this winter. Yours, very respectfully,
Ellarine, Schley Co., Ga., Ort. 4. ?867.

Sir: In reply to your inquiry of the re
-nhs of our experience in tho use of your
improved Poudrette-purchased of yon for
this year's cotton crop-we would bog leave
to say that tho present season bas boen
:>ne quito unfavorable to tho action of all
Soveral kinds of manures were unod by
nu, with the exception of your Fou'lretto,
with little or no effect to tho crop.
Whero tho Poudrette was used, it gave
us near half a halo more per acre, and
caused the cotton to open much earlier;
and wo would, therefore, recommend the

growth pf colton, as well as improvement
to tho soil. Yours, very respectfully,

OF A Lil, THB MEDICINES KNOWN
to the world, and to tho profession, nono
'have been attended with such marked ap?
preciation by the public, and secured the
approbation of the profession, on account
of its extraordinary remedial powers, as
"HEINPTSH'S QUEEN'S DELIGHT." We
challenge the world over to produce a sin?
gle instance where any other medicine has
attained such popularity, in so short time,
as the Queen's Delight. Twenty-five hun?
dred bottles have gone forth from the es?
tablishment of FISHER A II KI NITS II in
ono year, and the demand is still for more.
From all parts of the country, we hear it is
doing wonders. It cures Chill and Fever,
restores tho sick to health, improves the
general condition of thc man, and makes
him a now creature. Nov 1 tuf
FAITH WELL FOUNDED-In old
times, at tho commencement of every sea?
son, it was the fashion to tako a strong
cathartic as a safi guard against a change
of temperature. It was a worse than
senseless practico. The people of our day
understand tho matter better. Instead of i
dopleting the system they re-inforce it.
In tho method they adopt, they exhibit a
wiso discrimination. Instead of resorting
to tho vitiated stimulants of commerce, or
any of tho compounds derived from them,
they put their faith in thc only absolutely
pure invigorant procurable in the market
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS.
Their faith is well founded. Never has
any tonic medicine been prepared with
such scrupulous precision and conscien?
tious care. It is a vegetable compound of |
which every ingredient is bound, whole?
some and medicinal, in the true sense of 1
tho word. Now, we have three prominent
national complaints. One-half of tho
adult population of the United States suf?
fer moro or loss, either from diseases of
the stomach, derangements of tho liver,
or nil ret ions of the kidneys. In no other
land under Heaven are these maladies so
general as in this country, and Hostetter's
Ritters is a specific for them all, unless
organic in their origin, and, therefore, be?
yond cure. And let those who are fortu?
nate enough to he exempt from them at
present, understand ono great fact, viz:
that an occasional ute id' this vitalizing
tonic will as certainly prevent them as tho
sun will prevent tho earth from freezing
where its genial beams desveud.
