The Lancaster (S. C.) Ledger comes up
voluntarily with this remark: "Charlotte

merchants left the other day for the

Close of the Cotton Season Proper.
The cotton season virtuallv closed
yesterday, the contracts of buyers with
many of their employes expiring on the
win 01 .a.pru. xne staple will continue
to come in, of course, in small quantities
from this time until the next season
begins, the 1st of September, but the
main business is over. The nominal
receipts this year in the Charlotte mar
ket will fall short of those last year, it
is estimated, by 10,000 or 12,000 bales,
for the reason which nas several times
been mentioned in this paper, that the
cAioteuue ua me ireiguc pool in mis city
has made it to the advantage of our
buyers, who have agents in neighboring
towns to ship all their cotton direct
from the points where it was bought,
instead of sending it to Charlotte and
shipping from here to its final destina
tion. The cotton bought in this way,
commonly called railroad cotton, during
last year, is estimated at 25,000 bales.
The receipts for this year up to yester
day are 37.223, against 53,118 for the
same period in the year before. Take
off 20,000 bales, the difference between
railroad cotton last year and this, Jind
it will be seen that more of the 1 staple
was actually sold and the money for the
same paid in Charlotte, than ever before
by several thousand bales.7 The cotton
that may come in between this and thef
1st or September wm not appreciably
change the proportion. . - - :
The receipts this year are distributed
by months as follows : September, 3,696 ;
October, 12,064; November, 6,747 j De

IFrom the National Intelligencer, July 30, 1868.1
"Gen. Grant has identified himself
with a taction which openly insults and
defies the constitution, which has tram
pled under foot every safeguard of pop
ularliberty, which seeks to subvert
free institutions, which has' plundered
the treasury and burdened the people
with taxes, which has run riot in ex
cess, which disowns all restraint but its
own tyrannical will, which; basjjrippled
the judiciary, paralyzed the executive,
and accumulated in its own hands pow
ers wrested by force and fraud from
other departments, and which now
seeks by despotism and violence to con
tinue its ruinous ascendency, even at
the cost of civil war."
From the New York Dally Tribune, March 3, '76.1
" Let us confess it with shama Pres
ident Grant has dropped as 'by easy
stages to these depths of shame. He
has parenthasized in history eight years
which will be marked , hereafter as the
era of personal government "and the
period of greed. Eight years of such of
ficial corruption and dishonesty, such
selfishness and shamelessness, such low
aims and base purposes, such grasping
avarice and eager overreaching, such
speculating in official information, such
bribery and such barter and sale of of
fices, and such degradation of all things
which the nation has held to be high
and holy and worthy an honest pride,
that to-day the country hangs its head,
and holds its nose, and waits for this
administration to pass."

To the Voters of the City of CMrioUe:
Fxllow Citizens In this brief way I have con
cluded to announce myself an Independent Candi
date for the office of mayor of the city of Charlotte,
at the approaching election In May. Thoroughly
Independent, I shall not be In the least influenced
by any ring, caucus, or convention; I shall have no
friends to reward nor enemies to punish; I shall
not bribe nor purchase a. vote, nor attempt in any
underhanded way to secure one; but I particularly
solicit the deliberate, Independent vote. I am In
favor of strict economy and low taxes. There is no
politics In this election, therefore I shall run the
race to the end and take the risk, let the result be
what it may. In thus announcing myself, I think
it unnecessary to elaborate or make any further
statement of principles that may guide me; but
will truly say that 1 shall ever cultivate a genial,
brotherly spirit with those that I may become asso
ciated with; and permit me, in conclusion, to make
this pledge: That if honored with a majority of
your votes and consequent election, my best exeiv
Hons shall be directed to a fair, honest and im
partial discharge of my duties.. T

Opiates and the like should only be used as auxili

nerves are quiet ones, and the most direct way to
render them so Is to reinforce the vital energies.
That sterling invigorant, Hostetter's Stomach Bit

since it entirely removes impediments to thorough
digestion and assimilation of the food, so that the
body Is insured Its due amount of nourishment,

also counteracted by the Bitters, which is besides
a pleasant medicinal stimulant, infinitely purer
