. F.very business mnn shoulJ advertise, be hit
pursuit professional, mechanical, or mercantile.
It ia flying In the face of all experience, to
maintain thnt advertising does noextend man's
1 business. When ot.e man advertises, every
other in the same Tine of business must advertise
also, or lose custom.
Men should advertise, not only for their aep-
arate, individual advantage, but for the same
reason that they contribute money to lay off a
public square, grade a street, or build levee
because it is public benefit. People tbroad
judge of the amount and condition of business in
any town, and the business character of its In
habitants, by the appearance of its newspapers.
r or instance, you take up a paper published in
some inland town, and find but two or three
columns ?f advertisements in it you naturally
conclude that it is a shabby sort of a town; that
there is nothing in the place worth advertising.
On the contrary, if you see a newspaper well
nllen with advertisements, you suppose there is
a large number and great variety of employments
in mat place that trade thrives J that the bus
iness men are energetio, because you see that
they are endeavoring to push themselves and
.:. I ! e . . . .
vn-.Nr iwucii wwiro, such ft community is
most attractive to enterprising men. In short,
.. . ,
newspapers are looaea upon as mirrors, re
flecting the business features of the place
whence they emanate. o -
So far as we are individually concerned, we
are not prepared to assert, positively, that our
circulation is larger or better than that of &Xy
paper published in this section, for the sjmple
reason that wereal)y do not know what the
circulations of the other papers are. We have
never examined the publishers' books, and it is
therefore quite impossible for lus to tell how
n-wny papers they send to tuWriuers, or when
they send them to. But we know" something
about our axon burintsi ; we know that our cir
culation was good before annexing the old Jour
.nal list j that upon the addition of that list, it
wus large ; and that since that tine it has been
constantly and rapidly' increasing, partly from
unsolicited subscriptions, and partly from the
assistance of local and traveling agents. At
considerable expense, we have had four travel
ing agents in the field, and they have added
largely to our subscription list, in this and other
counties ; so that we are now prepared to say,
sincerely and truly, that we believe this paper
has a larger circulation than any paper published
in this section, and we foiow that it circulates in
such localities, and to such an extent, as to ren
der it a profitable medium for advertising.
n. n We nave the LARGEST and BEST
JOB OFFICE in this section j can do work as
CHEAP, and eleven years experience and
ptuuT mi iiaixi, authorise us to say BETTER,
tlian any other office in this section. See Shoot
& Davis' lurge fancy card, and Webb & Kun-
kle a cards, as samples of different kinds of
printing. Wt can print better looking cards,
but, tmrfer present circumstance, no other office in
this section can beat both of them I leaving the
decision to competent printer., of course.
To EoiToas aho PuaLisiicaa. The Com
mercial Herald, a weekly paper published at
New Madrid, Mo., for sale, with everything
Belonging to the omce. The paper has an ex
tensive circulation, which is increasing; a large
amount of advertising and job-work, and has
commenced its third volume. We learn the
press'and material are nearly new, and in com
plete order. Business at the East, which will
detain the editor an unknown time, is the cause
of his exposing his office for sale. We think
this a favorable opportunity for a person wish
ing to engage in uewspapci' publishing, as the
office will be sold at discount.

cheapness, convenience and utility, deserves to
oe nighly recommended. To set it going, noth

wick, and lard, or any kind of grease, for fuel.
With lard, it emits a light aa clear, and brighter

cheaper, than tallow candles. The one we are

From th Syracuse Star, of Octo. 3d.
e Tbe Syracuse Outrage. c
The Late DisonActruL Riot. That the
city of Syracuse was disgraced on Wednesday,
by the occurrence of a riot, during which the
authorities were paralyzed, or refused to perform
ineir aviy, is uy mis nine a mauer or notoriety
in every State and every city in the Union. The
fact no one but a traitor or a knave will have the
hardihood to deny. r.
For the outlines of the affair we must refer to
our paper, of Thursday. In that report we find
nothing that requires alteration. c These outlines
we how purpose to fill up, to reader the picture
of their infamy more complete, who, occupying
a respectable station in society, incited, by the
basest means, a horde of ruffians to desecrate the
temple of justice, and to violate a law of the
United States.
The riot commenced in the commissioner's
office, in the second story of the Townscnd
block. The principal instigaters of it were two
physicians and a clergyman of this city. The
fugitive was seize'd.by a negro carman of this
The fugitive was recaptured and consigned tb
the police office. Then the abolitionists renewed
the excitement, and their orators, by inflamma
tory appeals to tho crowd which collected in
front of the omce, strove by every means in
their power, to incite them to an assault upon
the marshal and his assistants.
This disgraceful state of affairs continued from
3 p. sc., till the rescue of the fuiritivn at ft 1.9
a.m., and all this while the mavor made ho at
tempt to disperse the mob, or to restore order
and obedience to the laws, further than to' ask
...C notci'i liu.iv tuuuuy lo uo home. He never
addressed the mob ; never read the riot act ;
never, in a word, exercised so much authority
as an efficient magistrate would have done in
the case of an ordinary affray among two or
three persons.
The sheriff being called upon for assistance
by the marshal, very promptly requested the
commanders of the Citizens' Corps, the National
Guards, and the Washington Artillery, to order
out their companies; This order was as
promptly complied with, and the companies were
assembled at their annories ready for duty, each
man being supplied with three rounds of ball
cartridge. Before marching to the sheriff's of
fice, however, Colonel 0. J. Vandenburgh, the
commander of the regivunt, issued his order to the
captains, of the three companies, forbidding them
to turn out He did this at the solicitation f
Charles A. Whcalon and other ' leading aboli
tionists, and in accordance with his own personal
prejudices since he was heard to express a
desire that the law should not be executed, and
his own determination to do all in his power to
prevent its execution.
Having received ah order from their Colonel
to disband, the commander of the companies had
no alternative but to obey, and the trooDS- were
accordingly dismissed.

troops were dismissed, they renewed their me-

The Monticello Watchman contuins the pro
ceedings of the trial of Wm. R. Palmer, charged
with the murder of his brother, Timothy Pul- ..t
mer, in the. town of Mamakating, INew lorlc, in
May kst. There was a quarrel bctwn the
brothers as to the title of certain lands, and WiU
Ham had threatened many times lo kill deceased,
if he persisted in cutting wood, peeling baflrf
eve, on tha premises in dispute. One witness :,
"William said that Timothy was destroying
his wood; he did not like to have him there, and
would not have him. and would fix a ' plan that
he should not stay there; thnt in August, about
the time his mother died, witness asked him how
his mother wus he suid she was not well, that
she had been a mother once to him, but now he
wished to God she would not live two hours;
she was no mother to him, she turned fr.r "Big
Thunder."1 William gencrnlly called Timothy
by that name." To another witness he said if
he had put a ball through Timothy two years
ago he would then havo had his just dues; wit
ness told him he would be hung if he killed a
man; he said he did not think it any more harm
than it would be to shoot a snake."
The testimony showed that deceased waa alive
Rt noon of the 15th of May last; that about one
, o'clock of thnt dav he left his home alone for
the woods, in which his body was found, to peel
bark; that the prisoner was home about the time
