Every peiaon lias ita antidota—Every disease has ita cure. It is a kpown fact that the powerful mltier >il medicines so often administered in eopioue doses in Intermittent and Rillious Remittent Fevers are as perilous to the constitution as tho fevers themselves, while tbeir operation is generally slow and upcertain, and.their ef fects evanecsent. Remedies of this class, hazardiotis under any circumstances, cannot be used with yiy approacli to safety except under the directions of a physician ; and in the regions where Fever and Ague, RilHoue Fever, Chill and Fever, Dumb Ague and their kindred complaints chiefly prevail, medieal men are eometimee few aud far between, and medical adviee almost unobtainable. It is obvious, therefore, that a medicine like the Texas Tonic 1!yrap, prompt ond cer tain in its action as a curative, and equally to be relied on as a preventive, of these dan gerous maladies—a preparation ae harmless to the constitution asVraler—puist be of price less yalue in the valley of the Mississippi, or wherever else they may exist. The common cause of all remittent and intermittent fevers rs the mephitic vapor or miasma evaporated by heat from the sell, or from the surtace of etagnaoit water : and it is usually when the torrid warmth oT summer has frostraicd thesystetn and rendered it incapable of Cputeflding enet*etiokUy with the disease that the attack ccimes on. July, August, September and Ootober are the months during Jlifh all biHiotis complaints Are most common, apd tnost violent. The organs immediately affected by Fever and Ague, and IntermiHents aurl^Kemittewts, are the l.fvcr, the -Spleen, the Stomach anil Kid neys, Upon each and all of these orgVhs, the Texas Tonic Svrup acts speei6c»lly, regula ting and controlling tho How of bile, preven ting gv relieving that enlorgwent of the spleen known as the Ague Cake, .strengthening the digestive powers and removing those severe pains of the back which arise ffrom the tor pidity or inflataat ion of tho Kidneys. As its name indicates, it gives a healthy tone to the Visccae, which perform the secretion, circula tion, aud excretion. Instead of inflicting a shock ffpnn the internal, nxwimeraiinedicincs .lo v» inviivnnatou fltlfl UUstilfn nature and seconds with wonderful efforts which she makes to throw off the disease It is not a te«*e -paHiativothat checks or modi fies the symptoms for a brief period but a radical remedy that reaches and remotes the cause bf the disorder. Of these fnct%tl»e inventors oftheTeta* Tonic Syrup hare had innumerable proof# aud they are prepared to establish them by the highest tcstimJHy; Medics! men of acknowledged eminence prescribe 4i iu their private practice, and H is rapidly fcnpenfeding all other preparations of its class throughout the west Southwest and South No family residing in any section subject to the visita tions of Ague and Fever, or any billicus com plaint, should be without it, if they detire to escape the penalties of protracted sickness and its concomitant dangers, agonies and expenses. It is cot alone for its curative pro pert ice that the Tonic Syrup is to be prized. As a preventive it as mvaluable. The virus of disease often lies bidden in the system for month*, and even years, weakening the vital forces, and slowly, yet sufely sapping the foundations of health and life. The symptoms wf this pTbcb» tppear itf sallow skin, the dull eye, the growing feeble ness of the unconscious victim As spun as these Wrany other foreshadowing*of sickneae are observed, such as pains in the soft all of the back, in the left aide, or between the shoulders, the Tonic Syrup should be given) aud it la gttavantoed that a •course el this remedy will, in nil case*, remove every gerifi of billious disease from the system, restore the natural color to the complexion, remove all local pain, And renew tfcc bodily vigor of the individual 1) is especially recommended to the unaeclimamd settler, as a sure safe guard against Ague aud Fever.

The proprietor of this Celebrated medicine jnstly claims for it a superiority ovet all remedies over offered to the public for the la/e, certain, tpeedy. and permanent cure of Ague and Fever, or Chills and Fever, whether of short or long atandiug. He refers to the entire Western and South-western country to bear him testimony to the truth of the as sertion. that In no case whatever wjll it fail to oure, if the directions are strictly followed and carried out. lu a great many cases a single dose has been sufficient for a cure, and whole families Rave been cured by a single ' bottle. With a perfect restoration of the gen I era I health. It is, however, prudent, and in •very case more certain to cure, if its uss is 1 continued in smaller doses for a week or two after the disease has been cheeked, more es peclally in difficult and long-standing eases 1 Usually, this medicine will not require any ! aid to keep the bowels in good order ; should 1 the pancut, however, require a cathartic j medieihe, after having taken thice or four doses of the Tonic, a single dose of HULL'S | VKOKTAHLE FAMILY PILLS will be sufti 1 cient. l)K JOHN' BULL'S Principal Office: So. 40 Fiftfi, Cross 8trr«t, LousViLik, kr.

L.IRERAE ADVANCES—Sopplice at Wholesale Prices. Comraiskfon tor selling Cotton, One Dollar per Rale. T* the Cotton Planters of West Tennessee, Alabama, Missis sippi and Arkansas: The undersigned respectfully tbffders bis services as agem for llic sale of your cotton in this city, and for the purchase of yijur sup plies. The itnftrtnttyc tcrinttiatlof of the late war, which so materially affected the heat interests of the Pouth, has also had its effect : upon the Commission llusincss of’f his city, | as transacted between planter and merchant. You doubtless well remember with what per tinacity (previous to the wKr), amounting in | some instances to annoyanco, you were soli i cited far your business at the rate of titty cents per bale commission, free of dray age,' I and stored for twelve months without charge, i Then (as will V> again) the producer was tho ruling element, and high rents, rich landlords j and merchants Arere the result of planters' j | patronage, . No people or occupation hove ; been more seriously pfostrated than planters i and prtdtting, and none so much dbserve to j 'be fostered and aided iu their unfortunate! changed condition. Row that aid so -much needed has been meted out you I opine too well know. Onerous government taxes in general, and a special tax upon your feeding production. Cotton, large profits you have had to pay upon supplies furnished, commissions on sales ranging from $8,50 to $5 per bale, monthly storsro rt exorbitant prices anil other expenses, os per reference to your ac- ! cirftrrt skies. Ik a sum tots'! will leave yon but little if anything upon which to. rebuild your j shattered fortunes, ar'Io compete with the new ordeT of affairs—free labwr. Hben 1 i withdrew freon the Cotton and Commission Business in I860, private fen sons t h ru led me j do believe that I wmild never engage in it ! again. The solioitatfWns of many friends that ] werd former patrons, and a desire to promote ; the interest of the planting community, so far as my feeble efforts aan do so. and the apparent want of gratitude exhibited, to a community' that in times past tended »o ma terially to tho prosperity of Memphis and its mercantile oommBiyty, has determined* me again to offer my services in the capacity as stated. The reduced stock of cottons in the United States and abort sudptics in the hands of New England manufacturers has caused some utlvance in peiHs from the lato depres sion, hence early sales may be prudent anti remunerative; such was the case the past Iwa seasons, and many planters have had cause to regret the acting upon the too common prac tice of holding and drawing upon their cot tons. i would advise no planter to send for ward his oottoa unless he wished it sold niton 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. Insurances effected in all eases if not inatrit S<m to the contrary. Shall buy I your supplies from wholesale houses giving you tbe benefit of same. In short, by strict attention to all the departments of our busi ness, 1 hope to merit a large share of#patron iigc.
