class establishment, and possesses rare
facilities for furnishing bonnets, trim

in need of a fashionable bonnet, rib
bons, trimming or any tiling in that
line, should remember AT me Mitchell,

New Cotton.—This staple conies in
slowly; so far as we can learn but
three hales have yet been received.
The first bale of the season was bronght
in on tiie 17th of last month, by Col.
John II. Hulls, ami shipped by Walt
& Co. This bale drew tiie. usual ten
gallons, ami a barrel of flour extra.
The second bale was raised by Dr. E.
C. Haiti, of Hickey Plain, and was ship
ped as was the third, by Mnj. I!. C.
Hanford, for Walt & Co. So far the
Major, for his firm has shipped ail the
new eotlon that has been brought to
market this year.
lUdr-CVrtitieates from Physicians and
other citizens well known in tiie com
munity, can lie produced in numbers
to convince all doubters of the greal
value of the Texes Tonic Syrup as a
curative for Chills and Fever. This
. ..,.c...as.»a. t.- nn,n
posed entirely of plants chiefly grow
ing liy the margin of Texas streams,
and is prepared solely by Mansfield &
Higher, Memphis, Ttam. It is tar su
perior to the imported nostrums that
have been scattered in our midst, and
combines within itself every quality to ,
adapt it for family use. It has never,
been known to fail in curing the most
inveterate ease of Fever and Ague.
Xe'.v (toons.—At no season since the |
M tr have our merchants manifested a |
greater desire In accommodate their]
tdock to the wants of the people than 1
they have this fall. Anticipating a 1
heavy {migration they have all pur-]
chased heavily of such goods,as the
country requires, and we can safely !
say that when the stock already pur
chased is received, we will have in
Dos Are more Dry floods, Groceries,
etc., than ran he found in any town of,
its population in the Stale. The busi- :
ness men of Des Are have determined
that if enterprize and liberality in tbc
purchase and sale of goods will do
ought to build up our town, that these
inducements shall be held out. Supe
riority of stock, access to the eastern
markets, with liberal and easy prices
certainly make it to the interest of all
in the surrounding country to do their j
trading with our merchants, whose
large sales admit of small profits. !\ e
would call upon our friends from this
section of the State to come and exam
ine Des Arc goods and prices before
seeking any other market.
It. It. 1*ok & Co.—it is with pleasure
that we call attention to the advertise
ment of this firm found in another col

themselves in business, and from thoir
large acquaintance in this Slate and
thorough knowledge of the business
in which they aro engaged, naturally
expect a liberal share of Arkansas pa
tronage. Maj. It. If. Poc of this firm,
has been and is travelling through our
State making new acquaintance, and
soliciting for his house; he is too well
Known tor us to say any tiling to intro*
duce him to the people. Dick Poe is s
perfect team, as every body iu this
couutry Knows ; and Joe N'evils is con
sidered one of the best cotton salesmen
in Memphis. This (inti proposes every

in busiuess. Their atlouliou will be
given entirely to the sale of cotton and
other produce, and every means be
used to give entire satisfaction to tiiosc
entrusting business to their care. Their

Gates & iluo.—Prominent amongst
the Dry Good Houses of Dcs Arc, is
that one presided over by the Gates
Pro's. These gentlemen have always
kept on hand a perfect stock of dry
goods and notions, hoots, shoes, cloth
ing, &e. As complete as their stock
has been iu the past, it was small com
pared to the large and elegant assort
ment of goods purchased this fall by
Ferdinand Gates, w 1m is now in Phila

rived, and the remainder will be on

Tonic Syrup!
A rapid and never failing cure for j
Fever 9l Ague, or Chills & Fever, j
Every poison has its antidote—livery
disease has its cure.
I
It is a known fact tliat the powerful miner
al medicines so often administered in copious
doses in Intermittent and Billions Remittent
Fevers are as perilous to the constitution as
the fevers themselves, while their operation
is generally slow and upcertain, and their ef
fects cvnnecsent.. Remedies of this class,
haxardious under any circumstances, cannot
be used with any approach to safety except
under the directions of a physician; and in |
the regions where Fever and Ague, Billions j
Fever, Uhilland Fever, Dumb Ague and their j
kindred complaints chiefly prevail, medical.
men are sometimes few and far between, and i
medical advice almost unobtainable. It is
obvious, therefore, that a medicine like the I
Texan Tonic Syrup, prompt ond cer- j
tain in its action a curative, ami equally j
to bo relied on as a preventive, of these dan- i
garous maladies—a preparation as harmless j
to the constitution as water—must bo of price
less value in the valley of tho Mississippi, or
wherever eise they may exist.
Tho common cause of all remittent anti
intermittent fevers is the mephitic vapor os
miasma evaporated by heat from tho sell, or
from tho surface of stagnant water , and it is
usually when the torrid warmth of summer
has prostrated the system and rendered it
incapable of contending energetically with
the disease that the attack comes on. July.
August, September and October are the !
mouths during ' with all billious complaints
are most common, and most violent. The |
organs immediately affected by Fever and i
Ague, antf Intermittent* and Remittents, are ,
the Liver, the Spleen, the Stomach and Kid- j
ncys. Upon each and all of these organs, the j
Texas Tonic Syrup acts specifically, regula- i
ling and controlling the flow of bile, preven
ting or relieving that cnlargmeut of the spleen
known *s the Ague Cftko. .strengthening the
digestive' poorer*1 and removing those ctere
pains of the back whicL from the tor
pidity or inflamation of the K'duey*. As u>
name* indicate*. U gives u healthy term the j
Viscera, which perform the secretion, circula
tion, and excretion. Instead of inflicting a
shock upon the internal, as mineral medicines
necessarily do. it invigorates and agists
nature and seconds with wonderful effort?
which she makes to throw off the disease It
is not a mere palliative that check* or modi
! flea the symptoms for a brief period bu» a ,
j radical remedy that reaches and removes the j
I cause of the disorder.
Of ihese fact* the inventors of the Texas
Tonic Syrup have had innumerable proofs j
and they are prepared to e*iabli'U them by ;
tho highest testimony: Medical men ot j
1 acknowledged eminence prescribe it m uitiv |
piiva'c practice, ami it is rapidly superceding |
nil other preparations of its class throughout
! ihe west Southwest and South. No iamih
residing in any section subject to the visita
tions of Ague aud Fever, or any bill ions com
plaint, should be without it, if they desire to 1
escape the penalties of protracted sickno.v
and its concomitant dangers, agonies nml
expenses.
It is not alone for its curative properties j
that the Tonic Syrup is to be prized. As a .
preventive it is invaluable. The virus ot
disease often lies bidden in the system for
mouths, and even years, weakening the vital |
forces, and slowly, vet surely napping the
foundations of health ,nmi life.
The symptoms of this process appear in
sallow skin, the dull aye, the growing feeble
ness of the unconscious victim As soon as ;
these or any other foreshadowing* of sickness
Are oWb in* »*» *1*® *»1 •
the back, in the left aide; or between the
shoulders, the Tonic bjnip should bo given : j
and it is guaranteed that a course ot this
remedy will, in ail cases, remove every germ i
of billious disease from the system, restore
the natural color to the complexion, remove
all local pain, aud renew the bodily vigor ot 1
j tho individual It is especially recommended ;
i to the unacclimatcd settler, as a sure safe- (
| guard against Ague and Fever.

To f lie* C olton Planters of B ed

slppl unit Arkansas:
The undersigned respectfully tenders bis
j services as agent for the sale of your cotton
in this city, and for the purchase of your sup
plies. The unfortunate termination of the
late war. which so materially nffected the best
interests of the South, has also had its effect
upon the Commission Business of this city,
as transacted between planter and merchant.
You doubtless well remember with what per
tinacity (previous to the war), amounting i*
some instances to annoyance, you were soli
cited for your business at the rate of fifty
cents per bale commission, free of drnynge,
nnd stored for twelve months without charge,
j Then (as will be again) the producer was the
i ruling element., and high rents, rich landlords
[ and merchants were the result, of planters'
! patronage. No people or occupation have
been more seriously prostrated than planters
and planting, and none so much deserve to
i»e fostered and aided in their unfortunate
changed condition. How that aid so much
needed has b"sn nieted out you 1 opine too
well know. Onerous government taxes' in
general, and u special tax upon your leading
production. Cotton, large profits you have had
to pay upon supplies furnished, commissions j
on *alcs rauging from $<$ 60 to $6 per bale. ,
monthly storage at exorbitant prices and ,
other expenses, os per reference to your nc- |
count sales, as a sum total will leave you but |
litllo if anything upon which to rebuild your j
shattdtod fortunes, or to compete with the
I new order of affairs—free labor. When I •
[ withdrew from the Cotton and Commission i
! Business in I860, private reasons then led me
to believe that I would never engage in it
again. The solicitations of many friendsth.it
were former patrons, and a desire to promote
the interestof the planting community, so
i far as my feeble efforts can do so. nnd the
; apparent want of gratitudeeexhibited to a
I community that in times past tended so mu*
tcr^lly to the prosperity of Memphis nnd its
mercantile Community, has determined me
again to offer my „ ?rvicer *n the capacity as
stated. The reduced slock ofeow'.'Jhs in the !
United Stales and short sudplies in the hftnJ®
of New England manufacturers has caused
some advance in prices from the late depres
sion, hence early sales may be p-udeni and
remunerative: such was the case the past two
seasons, and many planters have had cause to
• l.C ..... I ..It IWU VVUI...' M
lice of holding and drawing upon 11* • cot
tons. 1 would advise no planter to scud for
ward his cotton unless he wished it sold upon
the first active uiarkob It can bo held at
home much cheaper than in Memphis. My
charges for selling cotton will bo One Dollar
per hale. Insurances effected in all eases if
not instructed to the contrary. Shall bay
your supplies from wholesale houses giving
you t bo benefit of prime. In short, by sivict
attention to all the departments of our busi
ness, 1 hope to merit a large share of patron
age. Very respectfully,

and is considered one of the best cotton sules

i things that may be entrusted to us shall have

Arkansas for the last tcu years, and having
had a large acquaintance in the Confederate
