day evening quite tin exciting trial
was had beforo ?io ^Mayor's court
which proved of sufficient interest to
bring out a number of , our citizens.

reported for keeping a disorderly

peared for the di fence. This being a
court where it was presumed the
greatest latitude .wp.uld ho allowed,
there wu3 no formal indictment or in

1'lie counsel for defence objected and
in very positive terms demanded that
there be something to which they
could plead embodying the charges
and specification. This was of course j
done and the witness called to the
stand. The evidence made out a
clear case and late in the evening the
Council lined Mr. Chivietie S3.0 or
twenty days imprisonment. An op
peal was taken to "he Circuit court
where the matter will again be tried
and is likely to he an interesting case.

HARD TIMES BE CONE!
HAVING been watching for some
time past tlie flgauclal pulse of the
country nn<l the 'ever"varying events oi
ihe trading world with .1 view to tlie in
crease or decrease our weekly purchase^,
wo arc prepared tu announce to our iium
i rons patrons Hint our investigation ol
these subjects bus been perfectly satisfac
tory and that we have as a consequence
forwarded larger .orders Ihau ever he
fore to our New York agency.
The year 1SSJ therefore begins with
flattering prospects for farmers, mechan
ics .nod j.ll olhcv laborers alike. Tin
financial p.u'^e ol the country is steadily
improving and having returned almost
to 11 hard money basis, we shall jrradu
olly but surely recover our former pros
I'me and the so lung declining prosperity \
of our beautiful Soul hern land, licingj
Iirinly impressed with the fore-shadow-,
lugs ofi beso approaching events we have
made arrangements commensurate with
the demands they will disclose.
Our Agent in New York is already in
receipt ol our instructions directing him
to he on the uteri fur every sale and fail

the brink ol bankruptcy, so that he. with

year not only 1o increase our own re-j
sources, but lo bccou'.e ill&o ^1 never

friends by selling them go?d* far-below
the wholesale market of New York.
It was the credit system that paralyzed
our industries in the past and caused so
many interests to droop and wither while
every article uocdetl for family consump
tion doubled in value. Thus while labor
was inadequately compensated, goods oi
every description approached almost fab
ulous prices and the daily sweat ol a
man's brow barely obtained lor himself
anil family the commonest necessaries ol
life. Too in itch-credit wltfl always create
demands greater tliuu the sources of sup
ply will satisfy, hence everything takes
an upward tendency u nder its operations.
On the other hand eitsh transactions will
make the supply larger t bun the. demand
and consequently goods fall to hottom
prices when this rule prevails. We long
ceo a opted ibis system and find that it
works splendidly hi till its hearings. If
von follow it you will be stpe never to
buy what you do not. want, and in this
way keep you from the iron chitcbe- of
We pay cash for id) our goods before
they have the place bought from. Hence
our ability (independent ol our unrivaled
facilities lor buying) to outstrip and un
dersell ail our competitors. The mer
chant who buys oil time, (and who ol
them doesn't) not only has to pay the high
est prices for what I hey act but also the
additional percentage added 011 all credit
sales. Now all this conn s our of the con
sumer, the man who patronizes the titne
merchant at home, it will at once be
perceived that the dlllereuce between us I
is va.-t indeed, and that the buyer on I
credit system cannot parehr.se goods at
market prices, while We. by paying cash,
get the must extraordinary bargains at a
large discount oil wholesale cash prices.
It is therefore quite easy lor us to sell
below other merchants and guarantee
per fee I satisfaction in every case.
Our system is one of our own. and has
many advantages which we shall not ex
plain, but let it snltlc" that the larger
portion of the benefits arising from it are
reaped by our f riend.- and patrons, and j
by it we have established a reputation
near and dear 10 us. With houcsiy, fair
dealing, quick subs and small profus as
our watchwords we have conquered the
demon of high prices and forced from
him the acknowledgement .that he has
hiten systematical'^* swindling itiid de
frauding the people.
We have demonstrated to thousands
in this and other .counties that it is pos-l
sIUIc when dealing with at lair and honor
able merchant w ho buys strictly for cash,
to purchase goods ut [irices w hich were
current before the war. To buy and sell
goods does not necessarily imply that to
he successful one must either be a con
scienceless extortioner or a grasping
Shylock, as in every other calling the
merchant can dignity and ennoble bis
profession or he can sink it into iniquity
and trail its courtly ?ni*mentS through
cesspools u! deceit, dishonesty, fraud and ;
double distilled misrepresentut.ioiifl. lie]
can be a blessing or a curse lo his conn-:
try. As torus we prefer a good name
wi'.ii a slow hut steady increase in busi
uefjj to the gouging process which makes
one merchant rich to-day and a thousand
po r farmers penniless ami bread less lo
in on ow.
Ours is the true plan, by adopting it
you avoid the Scylla ol credit on the one
-ile ami the Churyhdis of a lein execu
tion on the other. To trade with us is to
insure satisfaction, increase your wealth ,
and general prosperity. Week ulier ;
