with their obligations, by redeeming their issues
in specie. Thi prompt action of the Republican
Legislature, had its desired effect i and nearly all
the bank in that Sinto, we learn, either now do,
or toon will, pay their note on presentation. And
the legislature eemj noway disposed tomuke a

directing their, effort towards breaking up the

VOTICH. To Ihose who apply immediately, 1
will sell a part of my splendid crop of Morn
Mullicauli Trnes, at the very low price of kalfa
cenl by the bud. Froni experiments made in all
part of the country, no doubt can remain, to those
who will examine the auhject, of the practicability
and immense profits of the silk culture. Repeated
trial have fairly shown, that more than the tree!
will cost can be realised the first year by making
silk from the leaves they will produce. As the
best judge (ex confident that the prices of Tree
will rise thie spring, and continue up for another a
year, the present may be regarded a the most fa. .
vorcd opportunity to purchaser, and the term
i her tide red a the lowest we have known. My
tree are genuine and in sound condition ; arid lit
the luxuriance of their growth many who saw them
