by julian a. selby Stay Where You Are?One of the greatest drawbacks to Southern prosperity is the restive, roving and unsettled spirit of the people; each one imagines that there is an ?1 Dorado somewhere, or that some section is more prosperous than his own, and there he may accomplish almost anything. The idea unset? tles him, and if he does not "pull up" and migrate at once, he is for? ever thinking about it, and neglects to improve his present home and farm. This delusion haB been wide spread since the war, and much individual disaster has been the re? sult. The curse of Reuben seems | to rest upon the people. That ter? rible "Texas fever," which so raged a few years ago, caused untold family misfortune, and ruined many excellent farms and farmers. It is a great mistake. Contentment is the great secret of life. Old Horace struck the right key when he said: "Happiness depends not upon place nor climate, but upon the state of one's mind," "Rolling stones gather no moss," and the experiment of selling out and mov? ing, in the hope of bettering the condition, often ends in bitter dis? appointment axd irretrievable loss. Thousands in the South can testify, from experience, to the truth of I this assertion. Better stay where I you are. If you are in a good community, and j our lands have bottom, drive down your pegs and locate. Remember that "there's more in the man than the laud," as old Jones said on returning from Texas, after terrible failures, to tho old worn-out homestead he had sold, and found it blooming like a garden. Right up the old dwell? ings, renew the out buildings, palings, fences, and barns; spend a few dollars in white paint, and give the premises an air of cheer? fulness. Cultivate less ground and moke it richer every year. Make plenty to eat, and some to sell, and let your cotton crop be clear profit. Plant fruit trees, have your rye, oats,' barley, wheat and clover patches, fine horses, fat cows, and rich butter. Give your wives and daughters flower gardens, and as-1 sist them in collecting a good assortment of roots and cuttings. Do these simple things, and our word for it, your homes VHl take new hold upon your affections, and, instead of tho rickety, dilapidated establishments and solemn, hungry looking countenances so common in our country, we will find com? fortable and inviting homes, where all is love, contentment, and happi? ness. It will be like a colchian| enchantress, infusing new juices into the veins for the prolongation of life and youth. Try it. Turn over a new leaf and begin anew. Fear Ood, love your neighbors, your wives and children, and don't | try to get rich in one year. Teach your little ones to love their homes. There is a world of melody and sentiment in that immortal old ballad, "'Mid pleasures find palaces, wher'er we I may ream, Be it ever so humble, there's no place | like home." n Goneral Grant and the support? ers ?f' the Force Bill will please take notice that the "second rebel . lion" bus commenced in dead ear? nest, and that they may proceed to spread the war paint and sharp? en tne scolping-knife as speedily as possible. That unhung traitor Jefferson Davis. sounded the key? note of the new war in Houston; Texas, Friday, when ho entreated i the Texas veterans of the Mexican war "to be as loyal now to the stars arid' stripes as they were zealous and brave in defence of their first" flag."

Tho symptoms of Liver Conipluint'ore uneasiness and pain in the side. Some? times the pain is in the shoulder, and is mistaken for rheumatism. The stomach is affected with loss of appetite and sick? ness, bowels in general costivo, and sometimes alternating with lax. The head is troubled with pain, and dull, heavy sensation, considerable loss of memory, accompanied with painful sen? sation of having left undono something which ought to have been done. Often complaining of weakness, debility and low spirits. Sometimes many of the above symptoms attend the disease, and at other times, very few of them; but the Liver is generally the orgon most in? volved. R REGULATOR! For all Diseases of the Liver, Stomach and Spleen ! IT is evidently a Family Medicine, and by being kept ready for im? mediate resort, will savo many an hour of suffering, and many a dollar in time and doctors' hills. After forty years' trial, it is still receiving the most unqualified testi? monials of its virtues from persons of the highest character and re? sponsibility. Eminent physicians commend it as the most EFFECTUAL SPECIFIC for Constipation, Heaoache, Pain in the Shoulders, Dizziness, Sour Stomach, bad taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpitation of the Heart, Pain in tho region of the Kidneys, Despondency, GIoom and forebodings of evil; all of which arc the offspring of a diseased Liver. If you feel Dull, Drowsy, Debilitated, have frequent headache. Mouth tastes badly, poor Appetite and Tongue Coated, you are suffer? ing from Torpid Liver, or "Biliousness," and nothing will cure you so speedily and permanently. The Liver, the largest organ in the body, is generally the sent of the disease, and if not Itegnlated in time, great suffering, wretchedness and DEATH will ensue. Armed with this ANTIDOTE, all climates and changes of water and food may bo faced without fear. As a remedv in MALARIOUS FEVERS, BOWEL COMPLAINTS. RESTLESSNESS.
