VESUVIUS.-The eruption of Mount
Vesuvius, which was described some
few days since as becoming still moro
intensely grand, is just now-De?
cember 9-quite alarming. The
whole of the volcauo is in violent ac?
tion, and flame issues not only from
thc old crater and many new open?
ings to the air, but it continues to
blaze after its ejection.
A slight subsidence of the volcanic
motion had taken place, and on Mon?
day, the 9th of December, the moun?
tain remained almost quiescent, its
sides being covered to a great extent
with snow. A heavy colored smoko
issued from what the savaiis term the
"smoke holes," old and new. Tues?
day night, December 10, the eruption
was resumed with great force, and a
mass of lava, resembling a solid rock,
was Bhot from the crater to a great
height, and, as seen from this oity,
rolled down the sides of the great
cone after falling. A loud roar, as if
of artillery, was heard during tbe
entire night. Tho mountain was
veiled in darkness long after the hour
.of daybreak next morning. As tho
forenoon advanced, a strong wind
sprung up from the North and dis
Eelled the gloom, and Vesuvius bas
een witnessed in its fiery daily gran?
To-day a perfect river of fire is
seen to flow from the mountain, run?
ning in a Westerly direction. The
fiery flood is nearing the town of
C?rcala, The upheavings of the vol?
cano are attended with shocks re?
sembling those of an earthquake,
and loud detonations, as if a battery
of heavy guns in ftill play, are heard.
A perfect panic prevails among the
inhabitants of all the villages situated
in the neighborhood of the foot of
The Mobile Register devotes tho
"virgin use" of its now type to re?
printing the Constitution of tho
United States, and to a very glowing
and just eulogy of that great char?
ter of American liberty. AU our
troubles, it says, have been owing to
our departure from its requirements.

WHICH WOULD PREVAIL. IN
THOUSANDS OF HOUSEHOLDS!-If j
it should bo suddenly announced through?
out tho United States, Canadaa, the West
Indies and Spanish America, that no more
HOSTETTEU'S BITTERS would bo manu?
factured, and that henceforth the grand
specific for dyspepsia, and preventive of I
all malarious diseases, would bo lcBt to tho
world! Tho bilious, the feeble, thc despon?
dent: tho traveler, the voyager, thc miner,
tho sedentary student ; the settler on thc
frontier of civilization; tho toiler, cooped
up in crowded city tenements; thc conva?
lescent, needing an in vigor ant; the shiver?
ing victim of ague, and the nervous of |
both sexes everywhere, would learn, with
grief, too deep for words, that thc most
celebrated corrective, invigoraut and alte?
rative of the ago, had been blotted out ol
existence. As a preparatory antidote to
epidemic disease, a genial stimulant, a
promoter of constitutional vigor, an appe?
tizer, a stomachic, and a remedy for ner?
vous debility, no medicinal preparation
has ever attained the reputation i>f Hos?
teler's Bittere. It is thc household tonic
of the American people-baa been so for
twenty years, and in all human probability
will bo so for centuries to come. The mag?
nates of science recognize its merits; and
that it is emphatically tho medicine of the
masses is proved by its vast and ever in
creasing sales. Jan 1 Gt

Gentlemen: I am well pleased with the
result of tho uso of the ''Doublo Refined
Poudrette" on my crops. I tried it on both
corn and cotton, and am satisfied wherever
it was applied tho yield waa 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 makoup my loss by purchasing a larger
quantity next spring. I regard it as the
oheapest, most reliable, and easiest man?
aged fertilizer within my knowledge, and
cheerfully recommondit [as I have triod it
thoroughly) to the farmers of this section,
and particularly to thoso planting cotton,
from tho fact of its causing 'it to mature
from ten days to two weeks earlier than it
would without the use of tho Poudrette. I
abo used it on niv garden, and found it of
much bene fit to ail kinds of plants. Very
respectfully, Ac. G. S. OGLESBY.

Martin, of Hampden. Sidney Cullege,

Tho Double Refined Poudrette is operat?
ing like a charm on my crop, and attract?
ing universal attention from all beholdurs.
I I am already satisfied that it is the cheap?
est and surest renovator of our worn-out
High Shan'.?, Ga., October i, lb07.
Janies lt. Dev, Esq.
Sir: The Double Refined Poudrette I
bought for two other parties in connection
with myself-ono of them used it on cotton
and corn, and thinks it answered finely;
tho other 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
tho crop to be fully equal 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, verv respectfully,
Ellatille, Schley Co., Ga., Oct. 4, 18C7.
Tho Doublo Refined Poudrette, pur?
chased of you last spring, I think, in?
creased my "crop of cotton 150 pounds per
ae.ru; put ii upon worn-out pine land, at
the rate of 200 pounds per acre, drilled in
with cotton seed. Yours. Ac,
Salisbury, JV. C., August 10, 18C7.

Hear Sir: i can safely say that your
Double Refined Poudrette is fur superior
to any othor fertilizer for cotton; for 1 have
given it a fair trial this season. Yours,

Savannab, Ga., September 25, 1SG7.
James R. Doy, Esq., President.
Hear Sir: " I used tho Doublo Refined
Poudrette, bought of you last spring, on
corn. I think it increased tho yield one
half. I consider it an excellent manure.
Respectfully, T. HOLCOMBE.
Ridgeway, S. C., Septetnber 21,18C7.
Mr. James R. Dey.
Sir: 1 applied thc Doublo Refined Pou?
drette by itself, and in combination with
other fertilizers, on cotton, and am pleased
with it; so much so that it is my present
intention to purchase a larger supply of
you tho next year to apply to my cotton
crop. Yours verv respectfully,
HENRY C. DAVIS.

Sir: In reply to your inquiry of the re?
sults of our experience in tho use of your
improved Poudrette-purchased of you for
this year's cotton crop-we would beg leave
to say that tho present season has been
ono quite unfavorable to tho action of all
Several kinds of manures were used by
us, with tho exception of your Poudrette,
with little or no effect to tho crop.
Where the Poudrette was used, it gave
us near half a balo more por acre, and
caused thc cotton to open much earlier;
and wo would, therefore, recommend thc
eamo SB a concentrated manure for thc
growth of cotton, as well as improvement
to tho soil. Yours, verv respectfully,
