Stay Where You Are?One of
the greatest drawbacks to Southern
prosperity is the restive, roving and
unsettled spirit of the people; each
one imagines that there is an ?1
Dorado somewhere, or that some
section is more prosperous than his
own, and there he may accomplish
almost anything. The idea unset?
tles him, and if he does not "pull
up" and migrate at once, he is for?
ever thinking about it, and neglects
to improve his present home and
farm. This delusion haB been wide
spread since the war, and much
individual disaster has been the re?
sult. The curse of Reuben seems |
to rest upon the people. That ter?
rible "Texas fever," which so raged
a few years ago, caused untold
family misfortune, and ruined many
excellent farms and farmers. It is a
great mistake. Contentment is the
great secret of life. Old Horace
struck the right key when he said:
"Happiness depends not upon
place nor climate, but upon the
state of one's mind," "Rolling
stones gather no moss," and the
experiment of selling out and mov?
ing, in the hope of bettering the
condition, often ends in bitter dis?
appointment axd irretrievable loss.
Thousands in the South can testify,
from experience, to the truth of I
this assertion. Better stay where I
you are. If you are in a good
community, and j our lands have
bottom, drive down your pegs and
locate. Remember that "there's
more in the man than the laud,"
as old Jones said on returning from
Texas, after terrible failures, to tho
old worn-out homestead he had
sold, and found it blooming like a
garden. Right up the old dwell?
ings, renew the out buildings,
palings, fences, and barns; spend a
few dollars in white paint, and
give the premises an air of cheer?
fulness. Cultivate less ground and
moke it richer every year. Make
plenty to eat, and some to sell, and
let your cotton crop be clear profit.
Plant fruit trees, have your rye,
oats,' barley, wheat and clover
patches, fine horses, fat cows, and
rich butter. Give your wives and
daughters flower gardens, and as-1
sist them in collecting a good
assortment of roots and cuttings.
Do these simple things, and our
word for it, your homes VHl take
new hold upon your affections, and,
instead of tho rickety, dilapidated
establishments and solemn, hungry
looking countenances so common
in our country, we will find com?
fortable and inviting homes, where
all is love, contentment, and happi?
ness. It will be like a colchian|
enchantress, infusing new juices
into the veins for the prolongation
of life and youth. Try it. Turn
over a new leaf and begin anew.
Fear Ood, love your neighbors,
your wives and children, and don't |
try to get rich in one year. Teach
your little ones to love their homes.
There is a world of melody and
sentiment in that immortal old
"'Mid pleasures find palaces, wher'er we I
Be it ever so humble, there's no place |
like home." n
Goneral Grant and the support?
ers ?f' the Force Bill will please
take notice that the "second rebel
. lion" bus commenced in dead ear?
nest, and that they may proceed
to spread the war paint and sharp?
en tne scolping-knife as speedily
as possible. That unhung traitor
Jefferson Davis. sounded the key?
note of the new war in Houston;
Texas, Friday, when ho entreated i
the Texas veterans of the Mexican
war "to be as loyal now to the
stars arid' stripes as they were
zealous and brave in defence of
their first" flag." Will come one
the ear, for the contemplation of
an admiring nation, thoce eminent
war statesmen and apostles of
strife, Generals Logan end Butler?

Tho symptoms of Liver Conipluint'ore
uneasiness and pain in the side. Some?
times the pain is in the shoulder, and is
mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach
is affected with loss of appetite and sick?
ness, bowels in general costivo, and
sometimes alternating with lax. The
head is troubled with pain, and dull,
heavy sensation, considerable loss of
memory, accompanied with painful sen?
sation of having left undono something
which ought to have been done. Often
complaining of weakness, debility and
low spirits. Sometimes many of the
above symptoms attend the disease, and
at other times, very few of them; but the
Liver is generally the orgon most in?

IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im?
mediate resort, will savo many an hour of suffering, and many a
dollar in time and doctors' hills.
After forty years' trial, it is still receiving the most unqualified testi?
monials of its virtues from persons of the highest character and re?
sponsibility. Eminent physicians commend it as the most
for Constipation, Heaoache, Pain in the Shoulders, Dizziness, Sour
Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the
Heart, Pain in tho region of the Kidneys, Despondency, GIoom and
forebodings of evil; all of which arc the offspring of a diseased Liver.
If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, have frequent headache.
Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongue Coated, you are suffer?
ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so
speedily and permanently.
The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the sent of the
disease, and if not Itegnlated in time, great suffering, wretchedness
and DEATH will ensue.

food may bo faced without fear. As a remedv in MALARIOUS
