" honesty is the best policy." Estab

ing tine tlrst brick business house ever

the storms of bad debts and unfortunate
Indorsements, which probably aggres
gate a greater amount than Unit
of any other firm In the city, and are yet
encrgetlca'ly pushing their constantly
Increasing trade. The principal bulncs
ot the house Is in the wholesale line,
their trade extending over a stretsh of
territory embracing several States, al
though there is connected with the es
tablishment a retail department, where
all ot the best grades ot liquors are to be
louinl. Tbe stock which the firm now
has on hand embraces a line line of the
best Kentucky whiskies, of which the
firm make a specialty, imported and
domestic wines, brandies, whiskies,
etc. They claim that, in the line ot line
whihkie their stock cannot lie nmussed
anyw here, as they have paid special at
tention to its si-h-ciion, and are constantly
reeeMie; letters expressive ol satisfaction
as to lis superiority. The bouse former
ly combined with llieir liquor business a
wholesale grocery department, but lor
Ihe pait four year they have devoted
their entire attention to the former
branch. We do not attempt a full state

iiess no bouse In Urn city commands a

wholesale and retail business both, the
housP RMturaily has a yry extensive
trade, which b evident from the lact
that it U neccsary that their place of
business bo open both day nnd night in
order that it business be properly at

tcature In their line is supplying their
steamboat and city customers. They now
have on hand some ol tho finest butter
