These are Advertising Times.—
This fact we sec clearly demonstrated
every clay in the business walks of life.
Business men—real judicious, practical
business men—have long since discovered
that it is much cheaper to advertise libe
rally and stay at home to wait on their
customers that advertising brings them,
than to save the meagre investment, and
run round town drumming up customers.
They view it in the light of “time saved
is money gained,” and they make use of
the Printer to proclaim to his thousands
of readers what can bo obtained at their
places of business. Business and adver
tising are inseparable, and no merchant
who has a proper idea of the former will
fail to use the latter liberally. The Bay
Book’s large and constantly increasing
circulation offers inducements to adverti
sers not possessed by any other journal in
this section of the state, and as will be
seen by reference to its columns, the ad
vantage is availed of to a great extent by
those of an enterprising spirit. It being
the only penny paper in the two places,
gives it the great advantage of reaching
the mass of readers hereabouts; which is
what advertisers arc seeking for. In ad
dition to this fact, copies of the Day Boole.
being sold about the streets, on the cars
and steamboats, owing to its cheapness,
goes into the hands of thousands of per
sons from the country thereby giving it a
country circulation which no other paper
here can command.
Our IIauhor and Business.—For seve
ral days past our harbor and wharves have
presented a very busy and lively appear
ance. We counted to-day over one hun
dred vessels of every class laden with mer
chandize and produce. There are some
ten or twelve barks and brigs, loading
with staves and lumber for the West In
dies and other foreign ports. Though
there so large a number of vessels in port,
yet the increased quantity of grain, lum
ber and produce now afloat and in store
creates a demand for coasting vessels.—
We are informed by our merchants that
vessels are wanted and cannot be had.—
Wo would thank our Northern exchan
ges to note the fact.
We are gratified to see our commission
merchants doing a large business, and
the prospect of active business through
out the winter.
U. S. Steam e it Powhatan.—We
were incorrectly informed yesterday
about the Powhatan getting aground on
Lambert’s Point. Wo are indebted to Mr.
Win. 11. Shock, Chief Engineer of the
Steamer, for the following particulars.—
The Powhatan got underway at 12 M.,
everything working elegantly. When
off Lambert’s Point one of the Steamer’s
Valve Steins broke, in consequence of an
imperfect weld in the metal. Forty eight
hours will suffice to make good the re
pairs, and the ship will proceed to sea at
once. The defective piece was one of
the originals, and from its peculiar con
struction could not have been seen until
the fracture occurred. No other damage
was done, and in itself is but a small
matter. The repairs will be made at the
Navy Yard, and carried down to the
Steamer.
PoH’i’i;it Painting.—Wo call atten
tion to Mi. Prescott’s card in another col
umn. Mr. P. comes highly recommen
ded as a portrait painter from Boston, the
Athens of America, lie has taken rooms
at Messrs. Hankins & Clark’s llaguerrean
Gallery, where he invites the public.—
His life size portrait of Dr. Simpkins on
exhibition which he has recently comple
ted is perfect and executed to nature. —
Give him a call.
PORTSMOUTH ib, .111
ordinance of the Con mum Council, we
observe that mam’of the old, deformed
trees that has for years obstructed the
side walks of that beautiful laid out town,
have fallen by tiro woodman's axe. Wo,
with pleasure notice the groat improve
ment iu the the appearance of those
streets where they have been removed.
We also notice with much satisfaction
the general improvement in our sister
town. We hope to hail her suon as sis
ter city, as her enterprising and intelli
gent citizens arc petitioning the lc.gi ho
turn to give her a separate government
from the country, which is nothing more
than right and just, On High Street.there
are two large, and substantial brick buil
dings being erected 1 >y ex-Mayer, II.
Sloakes and Mr. Thomas Scott, which
they will occupy soon ns Furniture Ware
Rooms. There are many other buildings
going up in different, parts of the town.
A very handsome and necessary im
provement for comfort during the winter
mouths, is being made in the Markcl
House. The building is to be cl os,-id by
slat work which can he opened or shill
as the weather and season may i> !;

Baptiwnu.—The interesting
ny of immersion was admiiiistcnd n. six
persons on Sunday evening Iasi, u tlx
foot of Court street, by the l!ev. Ah'.
Watkins, Pastor of Court street. I Pi j • t ist
Church. Notwithstanding the in. ■ m
ency of the weather a largo crowd v.ere
attracted to witness the solemrt rite. It
is to be regretted that on so solemn an
occasion, there were persons present
whose conduct was so unbecoming . . il
ized beings who gazed on the impressive
scene with geering ridicule and laughter.
Here we would take the opportunity to
remind those young ladies and men who
are frequently seen at Church, laughing
and talking, that they are noticed, and
their conduct marked by the wise and
good They may think it becoming and
sensible, but we assure them it is just the
reverse. Far better it would lie to ab
sent yourselves from the House of C «l if
your behaviour does not comport with
reasonable and intelligent creatures.
Fourth Street Baptist Carnal.—
In this neat, comfortable and nourishing
little Church located in that part »f Ports
mouth called Newtown and under the
charge of the Rev. Thomas Hume, a se
ries of interesting meetings have 1 iecn go
ing on for several weeks past, during
which a number of persons have united
with the Church. On Sunday night last
several persons were baptised by their
pastor. They were immersed in the
baptistry connected with the building.
Incorporation Meetin< t.—Agreeal >le
to public notice, a meeting of the cit izens
of Portsmouth took place at the Town
Hall on last evening to take into consid
eration the propriety of petitioning the
the Legislature for an act of incorpora
tion. On motion of Stephen Cowley,
Esq., his Honor Mayor J. G. Hodges, was
called to the chair, and C. W. Murdaugli
Esq., was appointed secretary.
The Mayor on taking the chair, staled
in a few remarks that the object of the
meeting was to consider the propriety of
petitioning the Legislative for an act of
incorporation, the establishing Ports
mouth a city, and the extent ion of its
limits.
Mr. S. Cowley, moved as them were so
few of the citizens present, that when tin

On motion the meeting adjourned.
The Lecture.—Court Street bap
tist Church was filled to overflowing last
night,-to hear flic last lecture of ex-Elder
Hyde, on “Morntonism.” We were
much pleased to see present, the Minis
ters attached to the different churches of
the town. After the lecture ended, a
Committee was appointed, and waited
upon ex-Elder, thanking him for the lec
ture he had given, aud wishing him all
success in his future endeavours for his
cause.

MSj In our issue of yesterday tvo
called the attention of the lnspcet.nr to

Aci'U'iknt.—Last night, as the Perry
Boat was nearing her wharf, she came in
contact with a schooner, breaking her
main boom and received for herself the
total loss of one of the cabins. We were

the accident would not have happened,

boat bad not given the wrong order.
