Remedy for Intemperance.
rjMIE Editor has received some of this
invaluable medicine from Messrs.
Hart Fanning, (successors to Doctor
Chambers) accompanied with a request
to administer it to some person who
is habitually addicted to intemperance
and willing to test its efficacy.
"The astonishing success which this
remedy has obtained in restoring habitu
al inebriates to sobriety, has established
its virtues beyond all contradiction, and
supercedes the necessity of any further
comment. The remedy is as innocent
as it is effectual; so much so, that it is
often given to children in febrile com
plaints, and frequently used as a family
medicine for dyspepsia, c. AH that
is required to ensure its specific effect, is
to abide strictly by the directions."
The strictest secrecy will be observ
ed, and the medicine with the necessary
directions furnished, on application at
The Cotton Trade. The Na
tional Intelligencer states that the
Cotton Trade exhibits the con
ncxion and dependence of Agri
culture, Manufactures, and Com
mercc. There is produced in tho
United States, about 1,200,000
bales of Cotton, of which Eng
land manufactures about 700,000
bales, and the United States about
150,000. The amount manufac
tured in other countries in Eu
rope is not known. There is im
ported into England about 15,000
bales a week, which is there ma-
; nurtured, sent to the several
i ports of the kingdom, and then
