big cargo. She added 2,000 sacks corn in

The Nashville returned to New Madrid
last evening with a good trip. She is do
ing a good business in this trade.
Tho new steamer W. P. Halliday was suc
cessfully launched on Saturday. She is ex

Tub truk way to inviooratk. Tno
truo wny to lnvigora.o a focblo system i to
Infuse activity Into tho operations of tho
stomach, that wondrous alembic In ',lrn
th tood Is transmuted Into the constit
uents of blood, tho chief element of our
to Ik; preferred to many so called tonics,
useful indeed as appetizers, but inoperativo
as aids to digestion and assimilation. This
sterling cordial, while it invigorates the
stomach, healthfully stimulates the liver,
bowels, and kidneys, ensuring the eseapj
through the regular channels of effete and
useless matter thrown off by the system,
which is thus purified as well as invigor
ated by it. Its tonic influence is soon
Hindu manifest by an increase of vital
energy and a more active and regular dis
churge of every physical function, and it
has the further effect of rendering tho
system unassailable by malarial epidemics.
A SPEEDY CURE FOR HOG CHOLERA.
Tlic Lewistown Gazette, published in
Fulton county, Ills., contains tlk' following:
"Every paper in the United States ought
occasionally to keep the fact before its read
ers that burnt corn is a certain and speedy
cure for hog cholera. The best way is to
make a pile of corn on the cobs, effectually
scorch it, und then give the affected hogs
free access to it. This remedy was discov
ered by E. E. Loocke, Esq., at the time his
distillery was burnt in this county, together
with a largo lot of store corn, which was so
much injured as to lc unfit for use, anil was
hauled out and greadily eaten by the hogs,
several of which were dying daily. After
the second day, not a hog was lost, ami the
disease entirely disappeared. The remedy
has been tried in a number of cases since,
and never failed.''

South America and Soctiiehn United
