gaining the confidence of thepeop'e, and
ihe numerous testimonial of its virtues,
given by practitioners of medicines,
leave no doubt that it is a safe and re
liable remedy for hipdbitt of the blood,
that speaks in big terms of its curatire
properties, and give a special recom
mendation of Ivoslsoo to the practitioners
of medicine. This is, we believe, the first
instanco where such medicines have been
officially indorsed by the faculty of any
of the medical colleges, and reflects great
credit upon the skill of Dr. Lawrence,
its compounder, and also puts " Koskoo

No a.:cmpt baa ever been made or ever
will be made, to disguise the chnracicr
of Plantation B;; ers. It con!ains aLc
bol; and no Biliers that do not co.r-.in
a'cohol ai-o worth a rush. Wr,er wilt
neither preserve the virtues of tonic veg
eiabes nor i-ender them aotive in ihe
system. This is a chemical fact which
no one compe'ent to deliver an opinion
on the subject will deny. Water tonics
turn soar on tho s'omach, if they are
not -sour to begin w'th, (which is fre
quently the case,) and produce and pro
mote indiges'ion, instead of curing it.
Lot it therefore be distinctly understood
that Plan :.;'on Bitters is an alcohol ree
'o -alive. Butmaik this: it is strictly a
medicine, not a beverage. It is to be
taken in limited quantities and at stated
times, like other remedies and antidotes,
and therefore its use is in accordance
wi h temperance law, as well as with
.bat "higher law',' which renders it in
cumbent upon every being gifted wi h
rea.on to resort to the best possib'c
means of accomplishing a salutary end.

Tue money mrrket exh:bits no new

tbe banks pre unchanged, and street rates
are abort tbe same; ibe inquiry is active
and rcgnbr customer are being supplied
by the banks. Eychpnjels more active.,
owing to tbe heavy monthly remittances;
rates are par buying and c premium

B'i.hqut Ulers, t'o ity warrants are
deposed of in small amounts at 60c to
dealer?, wiio charge C2 to 63c in selling
totax payeis. City sc.'.p and Tennes

is quiet; the opening rR, was tl, it
subsequently declined ic, and at 11:30
was quo.ed a! 1211. Dealers hero pay
120 for la ge lots and about 119) for
sma'l lots. Governments opened dull
but s.eady in tone. Sterl;Bg i quoted
steady at 10?.
The market is inactive to-day, with but
a limited demand. Choice grades are in
some request, but there are none in the
market, except, perhaps, a few tables of
low grades. Holders are inclined to be
firm, and buyers unwilling to purchase
at over 18c for middling, which dealers
would not dispose of (if they had it) at
less than 18c. The sales to noon were
about 25 bales of low and mixed grades,
and were in small lots at about lQJc for
mixed and 17Jc for low middling. The
New York market opened dull at 20c for
middling. Continued reports of the
ravages of the caterpillar in Mississippi
and Arkansas are received. The Vicks-

That paper reports the appearance of the
worm on the I ar.oo bottoms. J' he Holly
Springs Conservative reports crop pros
pects discouraging. Fine rains recently
'fell in some sections that will be of great
benefit. The Goodman Star says: "We
bave bad good rains, and tbe 'crops arc
growing very rapidly. Some corn was
,oo much injured by dioutb to be bene
fited, but cotton boa improved consider
ably since the ruins." The same paper
reports the appearance of t'je boll-worin
in Lamlerdalo county, greatly alarming
the planters. ' Tho Selma (Ark.) Clarion
lenrns (hat only half a crop in Phillips
county is the p-esent pro poet. Tiie
Randolph (Ark.) Express says: "From
all parts of this and adjoining counties
we hear the most flattering reports con
cerning the corn crops. The wenthcr at
this time is excessively hot and dry,
and feau are entertained by many judi
cious persons that should the drouth con-1
tinue, ihe crops will be cut short." The
DeWilt (Ark.) Sentinel reports cops
generally looking well, and iho prospect
ahead very flattering, heavy bhowers of
rr in having added materially to tbe pros
pective wealth of the farmer. Tbe Mag
nolia Flower says the planters in that
section have become very much alarmed
by the appearance of the worm, One
planter says the worms are damaging his
cotton crop to a great extent that be
has some cotton entirely stripped of
leaves. The Fort Smit't Herald reports
corn looking finely in that vicinity, but
says nothing of other products.
