Our terms are strictly in advance, and though we have been lenient, we cannot any loniger be so. Bear this in mind, kind patrons, and if you wish to have the News make its visits as heretofore, "pay up," if you havn't got money, bring its equivalent,--corn, potatoes, flour,--and we will be satisfied. The above has no refeirence what ever to our city subscribers, who take the paper and advertise. Capt. Cameroin's company will ar rive in our city from Jefferson, T'exas, about the middle of this week.. We are informed that they numlber about one hundred. 1A dispatch from St. Louis, of the 25th, says that Siegel and Lane are within two days' march of Price, and hoped to get a tight at Sipringfiield. The ý.tmer Era No. 6 arrived at our port-, Statrday afternoon, and left yesterday evening. .We are pleased to be able to say tht.i tte election. passbi off quietly. VTwo sons of the Emneraid Isdle were persuaded into a s~uffie on Texas street., but it only resulted in the drawling of aa little boid " oom the dombataaiti ; the skinning of Dootor's leg, and .th.- aoideita lo . eking (d.wn of ,Capt. H... wP was somewhat too c to thie disciples of Heenan. 'he ~ect of '- fiie-water," was visi ble in the evening. The candidaites, isneo"tfi ot forget to mention, were on the "look out," and strange toj Rsay, wu only got " one smile." W Dy of oth'irs, but that ' e are a boastfull people is not to be de- - nied. Since the comineTniment of of ~ou3tiff it'es, we have sp iiipiiuch 6f of what we should and would 4o, in St the way of inimediately'establisliing 'ifaiboes' of diterent description;, -but for as yet, nothing, we may say, has I been done. So far as our humble Key selfis concerned, we have always en pOr deavored to convince the people of e the necessity of these things, and so ton far as our means would admit, inva- con riably offered to become interested in tii undertakings of this class. We agitated the question of a parer 1 mill being established somewhere- in an( this neighborhood; like other projects though, it was thought well of, but Alt none were found willing to join in . the undertaking, and NZe dropt the tur subject. Much ado was made about the establishment of paper mills in 11' the cities of Vicksburg and New sec Orleans. How have they been car- t, ried to completion? Our cotempo- dw raries can best answer. Paper then Fe was worth from four to six dollars, oti the present value can be ascertained Ca by reading the following article taken 17 from the Algerine Newsboy, publish- cal ed opposite the city of New Orleans: ua ADVANCES IN PIwcES---The rapid- -"' flu - ly advancing rates at which every thing pretty much, is now held, na- the turally enough produces much alarm go with those who have them to pay.- St To-day we paid at the rate of twenty er, dollars a reamn for paper, which but a few months ago, was dull sale at it, four. - This might only cause a pro- th I: portionate increase in the price of the of job, but the fear is that before many m . days no more can be furnished at any - price.-October 26. IV The above as will be seen, is from a e. the paper of the :6th ult. On the 29tlh and 31st ult., several days after a] , our nmerchant wrote to us on thel sub - jeet, as requested by us. We make the following extract from one of the letters: : "r Stevens &, Seymour have not one I td sheet of pa per, good or bad, and ditto t or of Shields & (o. 'There is is not a sheet of newspaper for sale in this j e place. S. & (Co. say they will give I n ou a handsome advance, on what VOo : la have, if you are willing to dispose of my it" a d With such prospects ahread, many he of our papers will have to succoumh to re, the times, and discontimue their issnes r '' unless the blockade is very soon re es, moved, and of this we haveour doubts. ( Again do we repeat, if the South at- ern people ever intend to he iude- t ho peudent of foreign manutfactures, the sooner they strike out boldly the bet or- ter. Men c~'captital, in the difi.rent as, maritime cities, we are pained to see Ve are still followimig the old course of )nt sending their money out of tihe coun try tor different requisites, instead of inmvesting the same at homne, towards establishing various branches of in ild dustry. If we obtain our manufac tures from Europe, are we any more at independent than we were while p, ml tronizing the North TELEGRAPHIC. ly.
