500 barrels of Hour, Is now at l'ort Royal.
Desiring to encourage direct trade with
Liverpool, the management ol the Nash

witu their accu-tomed promptness when,
Nanhvillo's interests are to he subserved,
put themselves in communication with
that point, In order that our millers
might avail themselves oMhe opportuni

R. Knox, general freight agent ot the

and Hour dealers yesterday, urging
