l' ie oil of these flats is generally a

hills is about one-third of a bale
of cotton and fifteen to twenty
bushells of corn, while the creek bot

A correspondent of the Stockton (Cali
fornoa) Herald writes as tollows:
I herewith append a recipe which has
been used to my knowledge in hundreds
of cases. It will prevent or oure small
pox, though the pittings are filled.
When Jannien discovered the cow-pox
in England the world of science hurled
an avalanche upon his head; but when
the most scientific school of medicine
in the world--that of Paris--published
this recipe as a panacea for small-pox, it
passed unheeded. It isas unfailing as
rpte, and conquers in every instance.
It is harmless when taken bya well per
son. It will also cure scarlet fever.
Here is the recipe as I have used it,
and cured my children of scarlet fever;
here it is as I have used it to cure small
pox; when learned physicians said the
patient must die, it cured:
Sulphate or zinc, one grain.
Foxglove (Digitalis), one grain.
Sugar, half a teaspoonful.
Mix with two table-spoonfuls of water;
and When these are thoroughl mixed,
add four ounces of water. Take a spoon
ful every hour. Either disease will dis
appear in twelve hours. For children
smaller doses, according to age.
sood Land Cheap and on Easy Terms.

Amite City, 68 miles distant from New
Orleans, on the Jackson Railroad, will
be rented, leased or sold in quantities
from 40 to 160 acres, on easy terms. If
sold, a credit of five years will be given
to actual settlers. The land is rolling
and bottom. Cotton, sugar, corn, rice,
ground peas and all kinds of vegetables
grow in abundance. It is also an ex
cellent fruit and grape section, good
range for cattle, and well adapted for
raising poultry. The climate is very
agreeable and location healthy. Some
of the land has been cultivated, the
other easily cleared. Special and very
favorable inducements will be offered to
families. A large saw mill close by.
