Consistency! Thon art a Jewel!
We hear much said about U>e future
of Des fire, Arkansas, and her pros
perity as a city, and the policy to be
observed and pursued by her business
men. Again, we have it rung in our
esrs every day that the people ought to
build up manufacturing establishments
of every kind; raise corn and make our.
own meats, and bccomo self-sustaining
and independent; and a stranger would
readily infer that we have got our heads
level and ale going on to the accom
plishment of great things in this our
day. But what do we fihd the fact* to.
be; instead of planting and growing
corn and grain, we find every body
planting cotton, hiring hands it high
prices to cultivate and grow the weed,
paving extravagant prices for bacon,
in eel and other necessaries' to feed and
clothe these hand*; khd in order to ob
tain the necessary supplies, may make
deeds iu trust or mortgage their crops
ere they are planted, dven sotne are ex
pending 20-per cent per pound to raise
odttbn, which they haul into totem ami
sell at 12>< and 13 cents—all stty'tbts it
a foolish policy, but.many pursue it.
Others ask why it is that Des Arc ddh't
sustain or support a shoemaker, a sad
dler, a tinner, a harness maker, Ac. The
answer is plain to any sane man. It is
tliia • tli« nf Dt»a Are ninrp
0
earth aud heaven to get up money to
go to Cincinnati, Now York and Other
Northern and Eoatern citles'tc lay out
this money, wrung from the pockets of
Southern laborers, among the detesta
ble and ‘despised vatfkees that these
same ntefChatfts pretend to hate so fer
vently. These saine merchanU buy all
their shoes, Jmots. saddles, harness, tin
ware, &c., from those people that they
pretend to hate wish the vim and fer
vor of a volcano and bring these things
to Des Arc aud under-sell the mechanic
or artisaus who in vain attempts to
eompeto with these yaukccs, whose ar
ticles are made to sell and not for dura
bility or utility. Again a man opens
business in Des Arc under the style of
a produce and dry goods establishment
aud secures a privileged license em
bracing such a business, but really on
opening his stock lie find* that his stock
is a general variety of dry goods, gro
ceries. liquors, drugs, medicines, chem
icals, dye-stttffs, notions, &c., &c., aud
so on with other houses, front a whole
sale ho'usc dowu to the least saloon in
town. Every body, it would seem is a
dry goods man, a commission merchant,
a grocer, a druggist, a prescriptionist
or apothecary, ^s there another such
town as Des Arc in all the world, or so
many men gifted with so many adap
tations to any aud all kinds of business.
To illustrate; suppose that every busi
ness man in Des Arc were to pursue
and carry out the example set by some,
and thero would not be a regular dry
i goods house or Produce house, or a
] regular drug establishment in our town.
I Hence we wotild find men going to a
dry goods house for a dose of niadi
• cine and tt> a drug store to purchase a
! hat, or to a grocery to find a suit of
ready-made clothing. According to
our understanding of the Internal Rev
enue Laws some houses in oor town
ought to have several special licences
under wMch to operate. Most <)f the
houses are doing a kind of variety bus
iness, or miked business, in Des Arc,
as their stocks would seem to iudicate.
Cut is it characteristic of regular busi
ness towns und cities to liud houses
thus operating ? Why uot bo pio or
rcr at once, and haug out your signs
according) v. and act un to it. Then let

Tonic Syrup!
A rapid hod never failing cure for
Fever A Ague, or Chills & Tever.
Every poison ha* Its antidote—Every
disease has its cure.
It is a known fact that the powerful,miner
al medicines so often administered in copious
doses in Intermittent sYd Billion* Itemiitont
Fevers are as perilous to the constitntion ns

is generally slow and Bpcertaiu, and their ef
fects evanecsent. Remedies of this class,
haiardious under any circumstances, cannot
be- used with any approach to safety except
under the directions of a pht iician ; nnd in
the regions where Fever siid Ague, Biflioua
! Fever, Ohill'snd Fever. Innob Ague mid their
kindred complaints chiefly prevail, medical
men are sometimes few and far between, and
medical advice almost unobtainable. It is
obvious, therefore, tkof % medicine like the
TeXa* Tonic Syr’ip prompt end cer

to be relied on .a* a preventive, of thpso dan
gerous maladies—a preparation as harmless
to the constitution, as water—must bo of price

wherever else they may- eXMt- #
TB» common eausS* of ill- fdWrittent and
intermittent fevers is the mephitic vapor or
uiiasinq evaporated by heat from tho-pelf, or
frdm the surface of etagAnnt water: and it is
usually when the torrid warmth of summer
has prostrated Iheeyatem and rendered it
inoapable of contending energetically with
the disease that the attack com. s on'. July,
Aug'uit, September and October are the
months during with all billions complaints
are most common-, midmost violent. The
organs imrasdiately effected by Fever and
Ague, and Intenti-iti'ants ati-T Retpittoots, arc
the Liver, the Spleen, the Stothaeh and Kid

known-as tEe Agile Cake, strengthening the
digestive powers and removing those severe
pains of the hack which arise from the tor
pidity or iY.tlaniat ion of 1 he Kidneys. As it*
same indicates, it gives a healthy tono to the
Viscera, winon ptrrorm mrsecvcuon. circuit

shock upon the intbrnAl, a.-> mineral medicines
necessarily do, it invigorates and assist a

which sne makes to tfyroto off the disease It

radical remedy that reaches and removes the

Of ‘these facts tbe'invet?tors oftfie Texas

and they are prepared to establish them by
tho highest testimony Medical m^n of
acknowledged eminence prescribe it In fbeir

it is not alone for its curative properties
that the Tonic Syrup is to be prized. As m
preventive it is invaluable. The virus 01

forces, and slowly, ye t, surely sapping the
foundations of health aud life.

I was wounded about two years ago—was j

At thirteen years of age he had a chronic di

your Sarsaparilla. It Cured Him. I have

CHILLS Sc FEVER.
The proprietor of this celebrated medicine ,
justly claims for it ft superiority over aft
remedies ever uttered to the public for the
safe, certain. speedy, and permanent cum of
Ague and Fever, or Chills and Fever, whether
ofshort or long standing. He refers to the
entire Western and South-western country
to bear him testimony to the truth of the as
sertion, that iu no case whatever will it fail
to cure, if lhe direction* are strictly follbwed
and carried out. In a great many cases a
siugW dose has been sufficient for a cure, and
whole families have been cured by a single
bottle, With a perfect lestoratiou of the gen
eral health. It is, however, prudent, and iu
every case more certain to cure, if its its? is
continued iu smaller doses for a week or two j
after thf disease has been checked, more ee- |
pecially in difficult and long > andiug casus.
Usually, this medicine will not require any ]
aid to keep the bowels in good order; shorild :
the patient, however, require a cathartic ,
medicine, after having taken three or four j
doses of the Tonic, n Hingis dose of Bl'LL’8

To the Cotton Planters of West
Tennessee. Alabama, Missis
slppl t»n<i Arkansas:
i The undere’irncd mspectftllj' tenders hir
' services as agent for the Bale or your cottou
in this city, and for tbepurcba&c of your sup
pliea. The unfortunate termination of the
fate war, which ao materially affected the best
interests of the South, has nlso had it* effect
upon the Commission Business of this,city,
ns transacted be! ween planter and merchant;
You doubtless well remember with what per
tinacity (previous to th£ war), Amounting in
some instances to annoyance, you were soli
cited for your business at flic rate of fifty
cents per bale commission, free of dray age,
and stored for twelve months without charge.
Then (as will be again) the producer was the
ruling element, and higb.rcnts, rich Unulol ds
and merchants were the result of plantore’
patronage. No people or occupation have
been more seriously prostrated thaji planters
and planting, and none so much deserve to'
be fostered and aided in their unfortunate
changed condition. H.ow th$t aid so mesh
needed has been meted out you l opine too
well know. Onerous government taxes in
general, and & special tax upon,your leading i
production, Cotton, large proita you havens* j
to pay upon supplies furnished, commissions
on sales ranging fro>n $3 "50 to $5 per bale, j
monthly storage at exorbitant prions and I
other expanses, os per reference to your »c- i
count sales, as a sura total will leave you but j
little if anything upon which to rebuild your |
slifclt'bred fortunes, or*to compete with the
new order of affairs—free labor. When 1 j
withdrew from the Cotton and Commission i
Business iu 1860, private reasons then led me i
to,, behave- that I would never engage in it .
a'gairf. The*solicita',ions of many friends that
were former patrons, fcntf.A desire to promote
the interest of tKe-- pfcntiflfe community, so
far as my feeble efforts can do bo. and tbe
apparent want of riratitude exhibited to a
community that in times past tended ro ma
terially to the prosperity of Memphis and its
mercantile community, has determined me
again to offer my services in thq capacity as
stated. The reduced 9t<fbk of cottons in the
United States and short sudplics in th« hands *
of New England manufacturers h^s caused
sotr.ri advance in prices from the late depres
sion, hence early sales may be prudent and
remunerative such was the case the past two
seasons, and many planters have had cause to
regret the acting upon the too common prac
tice ol‘holding and drawintr unon their cot
tons. 1 would advise no planter to send for
ward his cotton unless he wished it sold upon
the first active market. It can be held at
home much cheaper than in Memphis. My
charges for selling cotton will be One Dollar
per bale. lusuranecs effected in all cases if
not instructed to the contrary. Shall bay
your supplies from wholesale houses giving
you the benefit of same. In short, by strict
attention to all the departments of our busi
ness, I hope to merit a largo share of patron
age. Very respectfully,
