It has been aptly wild that a business
man might as well try to eat enough
at ono meal to last him u mouth, as to
give his business a sufficient notoriety
by advertising a week. Like eating,
advertising to bo serviceable, must bo
regular. Keep your business, tho iu
duconient.s you can ofi'cr to tho trade,
(instantly before tho public. Tho
profits from your sales to a singlo custom
mer in a .-ingle day, may pay your ad
vertising bill for the whole year. Don't
hide your light under a bushel. Tell
tho people- where you hold forth, aud
what the nature of your business is.
Tell them of tho receipt of new goods
or of your determination to sell at great
bargaius your old one. If you nro a
mechanic, lu .he 'tublio know the fact.
If you have houses, lands, fltockn, ntcatn
boats or merchandise to sell, advertise
tho fact. The timo and labor expended
bv BOino men iu tuakinir their wants
known, without the intervention of the
newspaper, cost thcin ton fold
nioro than an advertisement would
which would accomplish the same end
in ono fiftieth of tho timo, and without
the expenditure of any labor at all.
Jt will scarcely bo insisted upon that
pcoplo arc in tho habit of buying land",
houses, stock or merchandise before
thoy ascertain where such property can
bo bought. Advortiho and you will en
able every man and woman who patron
ize our market to sit down in their on.'i
homes and learn who has the goods they
lesircaud the very street and house
whore they nro kept. The newspaper
is a silcnt-tongucd messenger that holds
daily or weekly couvcmo with more
men, women and children than you can
nod your head at, if you devote your
self solely to nodding. It goes into the
shop of the mechanic and artisan, into
the offices of the lawyer and doctor, into
the reading room of the hotel or board
oftrade and into the homo of the farmer.
ii all these places places you could
not visit by a month's travel it quietly
tells its story ; and if its columns contain
your advertisement, it never forgets
you; but speaks fur you, with the bal
ance. The attorney who oddrfxsjr the few
lozejn words to the court that enable
you to collect a debt,-receives your ten
or hundred dollars. The newspaper
will address its hundreds aud thousands
of reader in your behalf, aid you iu
building up a lucrative tradq, a reputa
tion as a liberal and enterprising busi
ness man will do this a wholo half a
year for the sum you pay your lawyer
for a minute s talking I
v would not have you patronize
tho lawyers less, but the newspapers
more. It will pay, and pay hand
somely. In all your lifu-timu you
never heard of a man who impoverished
limseirby judicious advertising. That

treuty, Mr. Schurz said there were geo
graphical and climatic reasons why re
publican institutions could not flourish
iu tho Uoplcs, and ho appealed to his
tory to show that no people had ever
Miecoeded in establishing a stable gov
ernment in thoso climate. Labor
thero had ever drifted into slavery, and

barian shiftlusMios. The Anglo-Saxon
raco are cental to almost all kinds of
ntorprifcs and emergencies, but he was
satisfied of their inability to establish

Tho speech of tho Senator was io-
plcto with argument and sound
logic outspoken in every respect wor
thy of the man, and iu perfect nccord
with tho manly independence of party
dictation ho has recently maintained.
At tlio conclusion of Senator Schurz'a
speech, Senator Morton took the floor,
and instead ol attempting a reply to the
arguments presented, indulged in the
usual clap-trap of tho Itadical dcnia
agoge. lie said that Senator Schurz
had only restated tho old arguments
that were advanced iu support of slavery
iu tho South aud which finally oulini-
natod in the great slaveholders' rebell
ion. It pained him (the Indiana
Senator; to hear any man who claims
to be a Republican and n friend to our
free institutions, indulge in such un

reason ho didn't then and there demon

Tho Missouri Senator wa.i "waging a

and "had not adduced u single argument

however to broadly intimate thatSehurz

future, there would bo no niche for him
to fill iu the Ititdical household.

the remarks of the Missouri Senator.
