MOFFAT'S LIFE PILLS
& PIHEXIX BITTERS.
for sale at the Post Office at Lumberton by
JOHN JN. DORR, Jlgent, $c.,-$.
These Medicines are indebted for their name to
their manifest and sensible action in purifying
the springs and channels of life, and enduing them
with renewed tone and vigor. In many hundred
certified cases which have been made public, and in
almost every species of disease to which the human
frame is liable, the happy effects of MOFFAT'S,
LIFE PILLS AND PHf-ENIX BITTERS have
been gratefully and publicly acknowledged by the
persons benefitted, and who were previous
ly unacquainted with the beautifully philosophical
principles upon which they are compounded, and
upon which they consequently act.
The LIFE MEDICINES recommend themselves
in diseases of every form and description. Their
first operation is to loosen from the coats of the sto
mach and bowels the various impurities and crudi
ties constantly settling around them ; and to remove
the hardened fajces which collect in the convolu
tions of the smallest intestines. Other medicines
ness, with all its train of evils, or sudden dtaTrhcea,"
with its imminent dangers. This fact is well known
to all regular anatomists, who examine the human
bowels after death ; and hence the yrejudice qf those
well informed men against quack medicine or med
icines prepared and heralded to the public by igno
rant persons. Hie secoud euect ot trie l.Me Med
icines is to cleanse the kidneys and the bladder, and
by this means the liver and the lungs, the healthful
action of which entirely depends upon the regularity
of the urinary organs. 1 he blood, which takes its
red color from the agency of the liver and the lungs
before it-passes into the heart, being thus purified by
them, and nourished by food coming from a clean
stomach, courses freely through the veins, renews
every pari oi tne system, and trmmpnanwy mourns
the banner ot health in the ltloominr check.
MOFFAT'S LIFE MEDICINES have been
thoroughly tested, and pronounced a sovereign rem
edy for the Dyspepsia, Flatulency; Palpitation of
Heart, LiOss of Appetite, Heart-burn and Head ach,
Restlessness, Ill-temper, Anxiety, Languor and
Melancholy, Costiveness, Diarrhoea, Cholera, Fever
of all kinds, Rheumatism, Gout, Dropsies of all

Scurvs, Ulcers, Inveterate Sore, Scorbutic Eruption
and Rad Complexions, Eruptive Complaints, Sallow

and various other complaints which afflict the hu
man frame; In tever and Ague, particularly, the
Life Medicines have most eminently successful ; so
much so that in the Fever and Ague districts, Phy
sicians almost universally prescribe them.

Cotton Cultivation in India.
Since publishing our remarks on this sub
ject last Saturday, in which we undertook to
show that the much vaunted experiment ot
American cotton cultivation in India had
proved a failure, we have.rieceiv.ed Bombay
papers to' the first of January, which fully sus
tain the positoin which we then j. took. The
annexed article from the Bombay Times of
December 22tl, appears to have bpeiLYrUten
ters, ahomay be presumed to Ti&Tesseinrfly
correct. ; -. , . '
To the Editor oj the Jioinbay Times and Jour
nal of Commerce.
Sir-f I have seen iu your paper of the. 1st
and 4th December, communications in regard
to thejeotton growing experiment as conduct
ed by ihe American planters located at Broach.
As the results of that experiment have been
but partially set forth by your correspondents,
it is but justice to those gentlemen, who must
bear the responsibility of the charge commit
ted to them, that a satisfactory exposition of
the facts, as they really exist, should be given
to the! public. At the same time, such an
expos jl ion will, I doubt not, afFord some in
terest and information to the few who sincere
ly wish success to the project.
Without noticing either of your informants
individually, I hope to correct some misstate
ments they have made, and give you some ad
ditional light on this subject, which has so de
servedly elicited the attention of the well-wishers
of India. The Ameticanswho were des
tined to take charge of the experiment in the
Bombay Presidency, arrived in Bombay in
September, 1S40, without a letter or single
credential to identify themselves as the indi
viduals employed by the Court of Directors.
Their simple declaration was fortunately cred
ited by the governmental authorities. They
remained six weeks at the Presidency without
any information or facility afforded them by
the authorities, for becoming acquinted with
(he Merchants or persons otherwise interested
in, or acquainted with, the difficulties they
would necessarily meet in attempting to es
tablish ri new mode of cultivation. They
were finally oidered to proceed to Surat,
whither they immediately went, & were placed
under the guidance of the principal Collector
at that place, to whom they were requested to
make a report of what would be necessary lo
accomplish the object iu view which they
did, so far as a total ignorance of the country,
aud the difficulties with which they had to
contend, would allow. This step was suc
ceeded by an order lo proceed to Broach, where
they arrived nbout the 1st of December, IS40,
and this was followed by an awful pause of
nearly; six months. During this time they
did not receive a single iutimatjon of what
would be the facilities afforded them for going
into planting operations, nor was any facility
afforded them for seeing the different soils of
the country, becoming acquainted with the
the practices of the ryots, or nature of the dif
ficulties lhat awaited them in the accomplish
ment of their undertaking. This time was
consequently spent to no purpose, and a tedi
ous time they had of it. Nothing to do but
count the hpuis as they rolled their sluggish
lengths along, and enjoy themselves the best
way they could in the "best residence iu all
Broach.' Up to the middle of May, which
was the beginning of the planting season,
when they should have commanded every fa
cility for going into immediate operations, no
land, to their knowledge, had as yet been pro
cured notwithstanding they (the Americans)
had anxiously remonstrated on the subject as
early as March; A few d;iys after this they
were informed that two poi lions of land had
as youc correspondent of .
the 1st December, says, ihe Americans have
never been more than half the distance out of
But, sir, the difficulties did not slop here
after the land had been procured, it turned out
that there was not an agricultural implement
in Broach. Just at this time, it was ascer
tained that the irons of five old American
ploughs were to be had at Surat, which had
been lying in rust probably for three or four
years. These were procured as soon as pos
sible, which were stocked after the American
mode, under the superintendence of the Amer
ican gentlemen, and with these five ploughs
they commenced operations, end continued
until the first setting in of the monsoon, which
put a temporary stop to their labors. After a
month's labor with these slender resources,
the promised implements arrived at Broach
Of course very little had been accomplished
as yet, and the season was far advanced. But
they received another backset here, from tho
inability of the superintendents to procure a
sufficient number of bullocks, which just at
lhat time were in great requisition by the Ry
ots themselves. Consequently 100 beegaa
of the laud that had been taken to the north
of Broach, were given uprc The balance they
finally succeeded iu planting with the Ameri
can Cotton seed. It was" the intention of the
Americans to have planted some of the indi
ginous cotton seed, but they found it impracti
cable, on account of the delays to which they
had been subjected. They plauted a few rows
of Sea Island seed in the garden at Amjeed
Bagh; they likewise plauted some of the Amer- -ican
seed in the came garden soill ' All the
land which they cultivated in the districts was
the black clayey soil of Guzerat. -The result
of the trial in this soil has been faithfully sta
iT!i XwJtU the 1st of Deo .
iuii. jju, fJJElLlAjllir-Mi
suitableness of the black soil, and the violence
of the seasons iu this country; bvrh of which
have been shown by experimental trial to be
particularly inimical to the American cotton
plant. The American seed that was planted
in the garden soil, which is a lighter colored
soil than the above mentioned, succeeded
much better. The stalk grew to a respecta
ble height, and has produced tolerably well,
but it appears to have prematurely matured,
consequently the produce is inferior in quali
ty and quantity to what is produced from tho
same seed in America. It has also beeu much
deteriorated, by an insect that has generated
in' almost every pod. This cotton has not
been irrigated as stated by one of your cor
respondents. A portion of the seed planted
iu the garden did not succed, and when it
commenced withering, irrigarion was resort
ed to for this particular spot. The object was
to ascertaia whether it would not revive it,
but it had no effect. The Sea Island: has
been irrigated, aud is now thriving beautiful
ly; as it has not yet come to rraturity, it is
impossible to state what the actual result will
be. The prospect 6f its doing well is very
I have pointed out some of the outstanding
features that characterize the first year's trial
of the cotton experiment at Broach. Tho re
sult, in plain terms, is a total failure. Tho
causes of this failure are sufficiently apparent
iu what has been stated above. If there have
been faults in the conduct of the project, they
have been rather of omission than of commis
sion. I leave your readers to trace them to
their proper source.
As to the Gin-House, whose topling ap
pearance has awakened the apprehensions of
your correspondent, it will be time enough to
comment when the catastrophe happens. I
would say, however, that the plau has been
adopted not from choice, but from considera
tions of economy. It is now nearly finished,
and will be iu operation in the course of six
weeks. I think there is no danger of its fall
ing down fiom the jarring of machinery.
These have arrived at Broach. One cotton
press aud four saw-gins, one of which is to be
worked by hand power. They have been
greatly damaged by exposure to the weather
before their arrival not so much, however,
it is thought, as to render them useless. The
grades of all of them have been adapted lo the
cleaning of the American cotton, the seeds of
which are much larger than those of the indi
ginous cottou, and it is feared they will not
be the best adapted dor cleaning the latter.
This point will be settled when the machinery
is put to work and a trial made, of which you
will be informed. Yours truly,
Dec. 1841. NAKED TRUTH.
Another writer says, "That the American
plant has not succeeded, is attributed by the
Planters to the effects of climate, and not to
the soil; three different kinds being sown with
almost the same result; and I am informed
upon good authority that the plant has also
failed at Coimbatoor." Coimbatoor is in the
Madras Presidency. The above communi
cation relates to the experiments made in the
