X CONSEQUENCE of the hardness of the
times, and the prevalence of the opinion that
will not do to sell cotton,! have determined,
oiii necessity, to oiler my goods for Vnxk, in
tore. The credit system hn- proved a failure,
find il iuiVff'ssihle to buy gojds for cash, and
ie sliorl time usually allowed by jobbers ia our
itnmrrcial marts. ami sell tlicm, in too many
stances, on all time, running to a never-ending
ernity. I have Ion ml tlint. retail merchants in
ie coil' try, although much abused by their ensmcrs,
are the worst imposed upon, perhaps, of
ly other class of men in the world. There
nsl be sonic other understanding ibout the
alter, and the only way to have il is, by the
erchnnt asserting his rights, and then inaininiiig
them, or "perish amidst the ruins."?
his was a maxim with our forefathers, nnd we,
icir (legem rate sons, have hallowed ihcir
nnes for their firmness, but in the jubilee of
ory have lost sight of the maxim which inspired
ir adoration. "In the course of events" I
id it has become necessary to go back to "lirsl.
inciples," and either "stand or fall" by the reIt.
The prevailing idea that a merchant has
uiiey oecause n<-' lias a store lull of goods is a
cat mistake; it is otic of the proofs of his being
st out of money, and the people must be made
uiideri-tund that he is not a tiling to twist just
i}' way, and convert himself into money, or out
it, just as lie pleases, for he must have money
order to have it. just liko any of the rest of
oil's fallen creatures.
With the determination to do the very best I
n for "(miiI, my country and" self, I throw
it the ahovo platform, upon which to place my
ture business operations, mid will stand upon
as long as there is :i plank left.
