we would like to know where the P. D-.
B, gets its Quotations from, as cotton has
been selling in this market
for nearly a week past at 11
cents lor middling, and this very cotton,
that is classified in our market as mid
dling, owing to the stricter classification
which exists in Charleston, would be
graded as strict low middling, and that
U the reason why jthe Charleston market
enjoys a better rtDtitation for prices than

t) test the advantages or disadvantages of

the other to Charleston, and tLen he will

money.' Will our otempo'rar bayo the

We are glad to see that at last a move
has been made in the right direction for
the purpose of, creating a fund fyr the
benefit of General Hood's orphan children,
Mr. S. W. Vick one of our most popu
lar commission merchants received a bale
of new cotton on consignment from Major
J. B. Burns of Wadesboro, and became
the purchaser himself at the highest
market price; viz: 11 cents per pound,
which is the quotations for middling cot
tjn, the said bale having been , classed
as sucn and then immediately set the
bale up to be rallied for the benefit of the
Hood fnnd. The movement jwas started
yesterday and already there are nearly
one hundred chances taken, and 1 at the
earnest solicitation of many friends of the
movement Mr. Vick has i consented post
pone the raffleuntil next Friday evening
at8 o'clock. 1
The chances are valued at one dollar
each, and we would like to see one thou
sand chances taken between this time
and the time of raffling next i Friday
night. In thi3 connection we think it
not inappropriate to publish the following
handsome tribute from the New Orleans
City Item to the gallant dead soldier,

withal modest, he bore upon! his brow the
signet of a high manhood,
and though broken in for
tune and physique, his spirit was un
subdued and his soul was the soul of
honor. His; death wa3 unquestionably,
hastened by the loss of the dearly cherish

The flair. I
Prof. WPson, of England, is the high
est authority on the hairi lie condemns
washing it, .and advises, instead, thor
ough brushing. This promotes circula
tion, removes scurf, and is, in all respects,
better than water.
Cutting the hair docs not, as commoniy
thought, promote its growth. Most of
the specifics recommended for baldness
are naere s'dmulants, and are seldom or
never permanently successful. Some of
tbem give rire to the congestion of the
scalp. When a stimulant is desirable,
ammonia is the btst.
For falling out ofjtbe hair, Dr Wilson
prescribes a lotion comp sed of water ' of
ammonia, almond oil and chlorofs rm, one
part each, diluted with five parts alcohol,
or spirits of rosemary, the whole made
frvgrant with a drachm of oil jof lemon.
Dab it on the skin, after thorough fric
tion with the hair-brush It may be used
sparingly or abundantly, daily or other
wise, j :
For a coling lotion, one made of two
drachms of borax and glycerine ty eight
ounces of distilled water is effective, alla
iag dryness, subduing in itability, and re
moving ecurf.) j
Both baldness and grayness depend on
defective powers of the scalp skin, and
are to be treated alike. What is needed is
moderate stimulation, without any irrita-
tion. The following isgood ; Rub into
the bare places daily, or even twice'a day,
a liniment of camphor, amjmonia, chloro
form and aconite, equal parts each. The
friction 'should be very gentle.
A little boy in Sunday School put: a
poser to his teacher. The lady was tell
ing her class how God punished the Egyp
tians by causing the'i first-born of each
household to be slain. The little boy lis
tened attentively, and-at the proper inter
val inquired : "What would God( hive
done if there had been twins?''
When you'see a young mani attired in
a white flannel shirt, h:s face slightly
burned with exposure, and hear him talk
knowingly of s jib fpres'ls' and 'running
under the wind' and slacking the main
sheet,' it doesn't follow that he is much of
a yachtsman. The chances are that be

Is it Possible I
That a remedy made of such common,
simple plants as Hops, Buchu, Mandrake,
Uanuelion, &c, make so many and such
marvelons and wonderful cures, as Hop
Bitters do ? It must be, for when old and
young, rich and poor, Pastor and Doctor,
JLawyer andltaitor, all testify to havng
been cured by them, we must believe and
doubt no longer. See olher column.
