It is a mistake to consider Catarrh merely
u local trouble. It is unquestionably a
disease of the blood, and therefore the right
way to cure Catarrh is to remove from the
blood the impurities which cause ami feed
it. This is to be done by taking Hood's
Sarsaparilla, the great blood purifier, which
Hl'eeiually expels all traces of poison and
serins of disease.
"I have been troubled for years with
and have never received the least benefit
'from the many so-called catarrh cures. Of
late 1 have been taking Hood's Sarsapuiilla
and can honestly my that I certainly
improved. I know Hood's Sarsaparilla to
be a mighty good medicine." H. A.
(kokck, Athol, Mass.

office ok Southern Standard.
McMissvillk, TSNN., Dec. 18, 1861.
Very soon after the Standard
went to press last week, we received
notice of a sudden decline of 3 cents
in eggs in the New York market, and
a corresponding decline soon follow
ed In the Na9hvllle and other mar
kets South. At present It Is unsafe
to pay in this market over 14 to 15c,
the later being the price now paid at
Nashville. With the present supply
of ice house and limed eggs and the
increased fresh production in the
West during the last month of com
paratively mild weather throughout
the United States, we can hardly ex
pect any higher prices this winter,
while they may go even lower In
January and February. We advise
merchants and other dealers to not
pay too much for them. Dried fruits
are still dull with no improvement.
Poultry, on account of so much fresh
meats, is dull and lower. Other ar
ticles remain about as last week.

NASHVILLE MARKET REPORtT
Corrected from the Nashville American
every Friday evening.
Nashville, Dec. 16. The tone of
the market was fairly active today,
and while there is probably less of
the rush which has characterized
trade for the last two weeks, there Is
still a heavy volume of distributive
business doing. But, n few days
trade will see the end of this, when
trade will assume a quiet, even tone
and move in the old channels as
usual. Considerable activity is noted
in groceries, and values remain un
changed. Provisions f.re quiet.
Wheat is steady, corn firm and hay
lirm but dull. The market for eggs
stopped in its downward course at 15
oents, at which dealers were taking
them today. Hens are dull at the
decline, and turkeys and chickens
are a little slow at the prices.

The American of Wednesday has
the following regarding the return of
the convicts to Rriceville:
There was an important meeting
yesterday in the Governor's ofllce.
The penitentiary lessees and State
officials met and formulated an
agreement regarding the convicts
and the question of the guards and
the pay of the guards.
The agreement stipulates that tho
Slate is to pay the military guard.
The lesse?s arc to pay for the civil
guard at present, but it is understood
that at some future time it is to be
settled whether they should -pay for
more guards thau ten, the number
Tho supervision of the military
guard is left with the Governor.
t was understood yesterday that it
would consist of only twenty-five
men at each place instead of fifty ns
intended a few days ago. The civil
guard will be left to the discretion of
the different Wardens with authority
to employ ns many ns fifty men If
necessary. It was further agreed
that the convicts could be housed In
cabins till the completion of the
stockades by convict labor.
Superintendent of Prisons Wade
returned yesterday raorniner from
Washington. Ho said yesterday
that he couldn't tell exactly what
time the convicts would be returned,
but that this should occur as soon as
arms and guards were provided.
There Is little doubt but that the con
victs will go back this week.
