The Sacs and Fox Indians.—The monthly report (for July) of B. A. James, Indian Agent of the-Sies and Foxes’ agency, to the Indian Bureau, states that these Indians I have returned from their spring hunt for I buffalo, at wnioh they met with great suc cess. They speak of no difficulty, among the Indians on the plaios. A lew Indians i have died at the agency, oi the measles; otherwise the health there has been good.— i There has been but little rain for two months i pa-»t, and the crops bade fair to be light, i Star of Saturday afternoon. A a part of the news of the day it is stated that there is an active demand for money. ! Wonder what “oldest inhabitant” remembers J when money was not in deinanu? Iq Boston, on the 7th, a Turpentine and Chemical Oil Factory was burned down loss $75,000—and in Chicago, same day, a tire occurred—loss $30,000. The Democratic papers of Kentucky are rejoicing greatly “over the most signal politi cal victory ever achieved by the D^micracy of that State.” _ COMMEHCIAL. _ Alexandria Narkei, August 8, FLOUR—Receipts increasing, with a very active demand.

I here is. as we stated last week, a pretty active demand tor mon**y. but there is a good supply ot capital seeking investment, and there is no difficulty in placing such good paper as is offered, at com par* ativel) easy rates. First cla*s endorsed paper is still selling on thest«eet at 9 p cent. ant! we quote prime and tair single name do. at 10012 | p cent. ’ Speculation lu Ciraln, The New York Courier sTates that great com petition is going on in that city, in buying up the new crop of Southern wheat, which has re sulted in prices being paid higher in proportion than present prices ot tl >ur; and as the general expectation on change istna’ flour must decline when the new crop begins to come m, this movement excites m«.ch comment, tor it is tch that no effort of speculators can sustain prices m the absence of a foreign demand and with a full crop. _ Dry C»tmmIs* Tmtle. The New York Independent of last week, thus remarks upon the dry goods trade. ‘•There is a tair amount ot business doing, but the Fall trade has not properly commenced. The importations are not heavy, having been check ed by the continuance of high prices abroad, which seem likely to continue miring the cur rent year. The number ot country buyers in the city is not yet Urge, but another week is expected to w itness a considerable arrival. The Sugar Trail®. A cargo o! Manilla sugar, ot *25.000 bags, sold m New York, on Wednesday, at Og cents, six months’ credit, to be divided among live re finer*, each taking 5,ooo n»gs. 1 he Post says this cargo was owned in Bo<’on. and previous to it* arrival 10J centslb was offered and reliv ed. The (lift rence between this offer and the price now sold at amounts to more than $^5,ou >, exclusive ot the difference in duty. The Imports of loieign produce and merchin di*e at the port of New York lor the month of July, were larger than ever fetore landed at any port in the United States during a single month. We do not refer now to *he goods which had ac cumulated m warehouse to await the action ot the new tariff and were w ithdrawn tor consump tion, but to the direct entries at the port. ^The total value landed during the month was $10. *ih3,874 larger than for July ot last year, 4‘J1,2,YJ larger than for July. 1*55, and $15.571, *5rt larger than for July, 1*54. The Exports !rom New York to foreign ports for the month of July, have he-n larger than for the corresponding month ot most pre\ ions years, but far below the shipments for July of last year, both in produce and *i*cie. The first shipment of wheat from the new crop was made on the 1st instant, in the propel ler May Flower, from Chicago to Buffalo. It consisted of 1,0<M) bags of winter wheat ot a very superior quality. Chicago is probably the greatest entrepot lor wheat in the whole coun try. It may be mentioned as one of the surpri sing events of the day, that the British schooner Madcria Pet sailed for Liverpool on the 4th, from Chicago, with 3.000 hides and skins, com pleting her cargo at Detroit. Among her freight is also a half barrel of white fish tor the Queen, designed as a present from cue ot her loyal subjects at Mackinac. __ JHHKK, COAL, AND WOOD YARD!! j Corner of Union and Quccu streets, borth — hire l am prepared to furnish every descrip tion of LUMBER, SHINGLES, LATHS, LIME.

COOK A CO , Sarepta Hall. By Saturday Evening’s Halls -.o: Charlottesville Items.—On yesterday, Mr. Win. T. Early sold to E. F. Clark, esq , the remainder of the lot lately owned by John B. Dodd, on Main street, and occu pied by Mrs. General Carrington for $2,500, cash. Mr. E. had previou«!y sold the cor ner portion of the lot for $800 to Mr. A. Maupin, having thus received $3,300 for the property which eight months since cost him $2,250. This and other sales show a rapid advance in real estate in our town. Mr. Alfred Bensou of this place, in re turning from the Snriogs a few days since, hst his pocket b ok, containing $1,500 in m ney. lie did not discover his loss till he reached the Railroad, when he footed it back on the Stage road a few miles, and to his in finite deiight he found the pocket book con taining the trash. Wo understand that a rumor is in circula tion iu some of the Southern State?, to the eJrct that some 50 or GO Students died at the University of Virginia last Session, of Ty phoid lever. This is untruo and has no foundation in fact. Of the G50 Students at the University last year, only two died, and there were not ten cases of Typhoid fever ain mg the whole of the Students. The Uni versity of Virginia is unrivalled both for the beauty and heathfulnoss of its location.— Advocate. Destructive Fire.—The valuable brick residence of Mr. Wm. W. Wingo, located on the wi stern termination of Clay street, was discovered to be on tire about 1 o’clock, on Thursday night. His neighbors, and a lew members ol the No. 7 Fire Company, repair ed to the Engine H iuse of that company, and procuring the engine and hose, put on a stream which was kept going for over three hours, and did good service in keeping the tire within bounds. Fortunately there was oo wind stirring at the time. The interior of the house was destro)ei to the floor. It was thought to be the work of an incendiary. There was ao insurance on the house and contents lor $3,100, divided as follows:— Valley Insurance Company $2000 on house, S50H «»n furniture; Richmond Fire Associa tion, $G00 on the house, which more than covers the loss.—Rich.

Missing.—Mr. Thomas W hite, a Pilot be longing to Georgetown, aod who left that place about two weeks ago, in his boat, for the mouth of the Potomac, has not been heard of, since last Monday week, and fears j are entertained that he has been drowned. A few days after he left, there was a heavy gale on the bay. The following Thursday, ! the boat, containing bis clothes, and other articles, came ashore at the mouth of Cono river, but there was no trace of Mr. W hite.

Mysterious —We published two or three weeks since, an account of the death of Miss Florence Mason, at a hotel in St. Louis, under peculiar circumstances. W e then stated that she was supposed to be from Michigan. W e have since received an anonymous letter from some one who evidently knows much mora than ho wants to tell, staling that she was most probably from Alexandria, I> C.,or rather Ya., and that if an investigation wore made, thrilling incidents would be ob i taiued.— 67/4.

The charter of this Company offers more fa | vorahle advantages to the farmer and other*, than any other company chartered in the State, by insuring with or without a premium note.— It the applicant prefer,he can pay the lull amount of the premium in cash, or by effecting a cash insurance lor two ^ears, the insured saves one eighth of the amount he would otherwise have to pay : or by becoming a member, and giving a small premium note, the insured saves nearly one hall o! the amount charged by Stock Compa nies, when insuring from year to year. This is the advantage resulting from the combination ol THE CASH AND MUTUAL PRINCIPLE. 'Ibis company commenced issuing Policies against loss or damage by lire, on the lHth of March, 1604, since which time over thirty-five hundred persons have insured and become mem bers of the Company. Having trebled our bu siness during the past year, we leel grateful lor the liberal patronage bestowed upon trie Com pa ! ny thus far, and loi its tlattering prospects of j future usefulness. The Directors hope and be ' lieve that by prudence, caution and a rigid sys fem of economy, they will establish for this Company a reputation lor cheapness and salety, not surpassed by any Company in the U. States. All differences in settlement of losses, maybe determined by three disinterested arbitrators ol the IV-unty where such loss happened,to be mu tually chosen by the insured and the Company.

Fail fax Co., jy 15—eots ONE DOLLAR WILL BUY ONE OF THE best Purgative and Liver Medicines now' before the public, namely: DR. SANFORD S INVIGORATOR, OR LIVER REMEDY,that acts as a Cathartic, easier, milder, and more effectual than any other medicine known. It is not only a Cathartic, but a Liver remedy, acting first on the Liver to eject its morbid matter, then on the stomach and bowels to carry off that matter, thus accomplishing two purposes *Ac tually, without any of the painful feeling* ex perienced in the operations of most Cathartics. It strengthens the system at the same time that I it purges it. and when taken daily in moderate doses will strengthen and build it up with unu sual rapidity. ! DR. SANFORD’S INVIGORATOR is com pounded entirely from new articles of medicine, namely. Gums. Some idea of the strength of these gums may be formed when it is known that one bottle of the Invigorator contains as much strength as one hundred do.»es of Calomel, without any of its deleterious effects. Though possessing rare medicinal power*, these Gums have been but little known to ph) Sl oans, and never used in their prescriptions un til used in the form of the Invigorator. which met with such unprecedented success as to in duce the proprietor to otTer it as a lamily medi cine, tried and kuown in its effects It has rare ly ever failed to cure Liver Complaints in then worst forms. INDIGESTION being caused by a deranged Liver is cured when the Liver is excited to ac tion. JAUNDICEiscaused by an improper action of the Liver, and as a proof that the Invigorator relieves this disease, let any one troubled with Jaundice take th« Invigorator regulaily one week, and their skin will begin to assume its ori ginal color. COSTIVENESS can be permanently cured by the Invigorator. Take it in small doses on re tiring, and it assists nature in her operations. By gradually diminishing the dose, the bowels are left in a healthy and active state, and work as regularly as clock work. SICK HEADACHE is very soon relieved by taking a double dose of the Invigorator, which corrects all acidity and sournessof the stomach. For an over loaded stomach it has no equal, as it relieves all oppressive or uneasy feeling alter eating heartily. For a family medicine gene rally, all who use it speak in the highest terms. DR. SANFORD’S INVIGORATOR came to us recommended as a cure for Liver Complaints, and all diseases arising from a Diseased Liver. The testimonials ol' so many of our Physicians in its favor, induced us to try it, and now con viction is certain that it is one of the greatest blessings ever given to Dyspeptics, lor it made a complete cure before the first bottle was taken and now' we can eat anything ediblr without trouble, while before nothing but tin lightest food would digest, and often that gavr pain.— Now what we want to say to all our rf aders is, if Liver Complaint or Dyspepsia trouble you, do not fail to try this the greatest lemedy in the world.—State Fart. We take infinite pleasure in recommending this medicine as a preventive for Fever and Auric, Chill Fever, and all Fevers of a Bilious Type. It operates with certainty, and thousands aie willing to testily to its wonderful virtues. There has never been tried in our lamily a remedy which has met with such unbounded success in the cure of diseases incident to chil dren, as DR. SANFORD* INV1GORATOR; nor is it alone for diseases of children that we use it; for it acts as a Cathartic so mildly and gently, and seems to renovate the system so thoroughly that we think we are doing a service to all in advising them, when they need medi cine, to try this remedy. There are case* that have come under our notice wnere great benefit has been received in diseases of the Liv«*r, Stomach, and Bowels, where all other rernrdies failed to give relief. It has become so useiul in our family that we will not be without it. Jacksonville, Jla. Republican. We wish all who are sick and debilitated to try this remedy, and test it thoroughly, and any who are not l*nefitted by its use we should like to hear from, as we have yet to hear from the first person w ho has used a bottle of Invigora tor without receiving benefit, for there are such astonishing medicinal virtues in it. that all, no matter how long they have been affected, if their complaint arises from a deranged Liver, will be benefited, if not entirely cured.
