Many > ' t are accordingly preparing to swallow the bitter pill of McClelJan, rather than the 'nauseous one of Lincoln.

We would, however, say to f ' our farmers, planters and country fcqnsumers generally, that if tlicy club together for any partienjar District, and appoint a responsible agent here, they can have their salt at the' prices to which the salt boilers Lave- bound themselves to suorrtv consumers, else the boiler refusing to supply at these prices will not have his detail renewed. We may advert to this matter again, and fnrnish tho names of the salt boilers so detailed.?Charleston Mercury. * ?? ' Tuk Draft.?Nobody wants to be drafted ?nobody wants to go.
