From the Xew Orleans Picayune.
ITS COVUITIOX AND FVTI'BK PROSPECTS.
The following communication from our
esteemed correspondent, Mr. Affleck, is of
great interest at this juncture. It addres
ses itself with tnucli force to planters :
Gentlemen—l closed my last with a
remark that “ a time has now come, when
by a very slight reliance upon the experi
ence of the past, aud by the exercise of a
common degree of business tact and pru
dence, the business of cotton growing may
be placed upon a fooling so stable as to
defy all ordinary change.”
Planters have now the gamo in their
own hands. Let them send forward the
present crop, regularly and steadily, sell
ing enough to meet the actual demand for
consumption, and insisting upon 15 cents
per pound for middling fair cotton, which
can be realized without the slightest diffi
culty, if not by grower, it will be assur
edly by the speculator. Let them avoid
incurring new liabilities based upon the
prospects of future years —it is this thing
of plunging into wild expenditure, and
what is tenfold worse, the incurrence of
heavy debts with a view to benefiting, as
they suppose, by the improved price of
cotton, that has been their ruin. Let them
live strictly within their means; plant
moderate crops of cotton and full crops of
cotton and full crops of every thing else:
lend their prompt and efficient aid towards
bringing the plough, toe loom and the an
vil together, by investing their spare
means, to a prudent extent, in factories
established amongst us, and they will in
sure to themselves from 12 to 1G cents for
cotton at all times.
But will any such course be pursued?
Doubtful—extremely doubtful. Ido not
think spinners have any very serious cause
for uneasiness. They can and will exert
the great, almost incalculable power of
Combination. —Planters) neither can nor
will. An interest so vast, representing an
annual income of from fifty to an hundred
millions, has not even a single organ; not
one journal to advocate its cause, and
bring about, even partially, the results of
combined action. The whole business is
conducted in the lowest possible manner.
Notone planter in a hundred knows more
of his affairs—and I have heard repeated
boasts to that effect!—than that cotton at
13 cents will nett about SSO per bale; that
his 300 bales will yield about $15,000;
that $15,000 is a pretty good pile and will
admit of considerable spending; and that
if lie has not enough, the prospects are
good enough to warrant his getting an ad
vance of a few thousand through tho sum
mer from his factor.
It is greatly to be feared that a course
will be pursued during the next three
years somowhat of this kind.
Too large a proportion of the present
crop will be held back until midsummer
or later, instead of being gradually sold.
As the next crop progresses in its growth,
statements of all kinds, calculated to de
press prices, will be iudustrously circula
ted, and remain almost uncontradicted;
mayhap a war or two gotten up, between
the Hottentots, perhaps, and the Esqui
maux! Prices will be shaken a trifle;
planters become alarmed, and as is the
common practice in such cases, cotton
will be rushed into marketat a dull season
of the year, with the usual results. The
rule generally acted upon is, when prices
improve, hold on ; when they give way a
shade, rush m the cotton befuxe it geis any
In the meantime, cotton being up, every
thing else will go up. Produce dealers
know well that planters will sacrifice every
thing to the making of an overwhelming
crop of cotton when prices go up ; and
that supplies must be had at whatever
prices. Negro traders offer extraordinary
facilities for purchasing, at rates, of course,
proportioned to the price of the great
staple. I’hey sell and fiud read buyers
on six or eight months’ credit, taking drafts
on the New Orleans merchants. Lands
go up, and consequently find eager pur
chasers ; more drafts being given. An
extra large crop being aimed at, extra
mules must be had, followed by more
drabs; and, having such facilities, large
crops are made, perhaps, requiring addi
tional hands to pick them out, which the
high price of cotton and flaming prospects
generally, encourage the being purchased,
the crop being thus still farther anticipa
ted by drafts. During the summer, too, a
pleasure trip must be taken. Instead of a
month or two passed on our own delight
ful Mississppi sea coast, at moderate ex
pense and trifling outlay for travelling
charges, whilst the nearness to home ad
mits of an immediate return should cir
cumstances require it; yet auother heavy
advance draft on the unfortunate factor,
as the case may be, furnishes the means of
along and fatiguing journey to the North,
and for several weeks’ stewing in the
crowded hotels of Saratoga or Cape May,
amongst those of whom two in three look
on us as oppressing tyrants of inocent and
interesting black brethren.
And now for the results of this ruinous
system of anticipation, to be excused only
when indispensable. The next crop be
gins to come in. The stock on hand and
for sale should, by that time, be reduced
to a mere trifle; whilst consumption con
tinues to increase. Prices might be at
almost any figure. But the practice just
referred to, ami which seems to bo so com
pletely engrafted in the system of cotton
growing, keeps them down. Factors have
accepted heavily, or planters draw as fast
a-i the crop can bo sent in, to meet their
advance engagements, placing themselves
completely in the p jwer of buyers. These
diaf sand advances must be met. Buyers
know it, and down goes cotton, as it cer
tainly ought to do, under such a stale of

A man by the name of C/jtff haa with a
roans man of the name of S. IV Townsend, and uses his
name to |>ut up a Sarsa;>arilla, which they call Dr. Tiisi
wind's Barsaparilla, denominating it OEJfUUfE, Original,
etc. This Townsend is no doctor, and never was; bat WSJ
j formerly a worker on railroads, canals, and the like. Yet he
assumes the title of Dr., for the purpose of gaining credit for
what he is not. This is to cautioo the public not to he
deceived, and purchase none bat the OFJtVUfF. ORIOI
tf.IL 01.1} Dr. Jacob Townsend's Sarsaparilla, having on
it the Old Dr's, likeness, his family coat of arms, and his
signature across the emit of arms.
Principal Office, 10- tf.ggau- si., Acta York dtp.
THE ORIGINAL DISCOVERER OF THE
Genuine Townsend Sarsaparilla.
Old Dr. Townsend is now about 70 years of age. and Lias
long been known as the AUTHOR and DISCOVERER
of the (I ENUINF. ORIGINAL “ TOWNSEND SAR
SAPARILLAPeing poor, he was conijtelled to limit its
manufacture, by which means it has been kept out of mar
ket, and the sales circumscribed to those only who had
proved its worth, and known its value. It had reached
the ears of many, nevertheless, as those persons who had
been healed of sore diseases, and saved from death, pro
claimed its excellence ami wonderful
Knowing, many years ago. that he had, by his skill,
science and experience, devised an article which would be
of incalculable advantage to mankind when the means
would be furnished to bring it into universal notice, when
its inestimable virtues would be known and appreciated.
This time has come, the means arc supplied ; this
GRAND AND UNEQUALLED PREPARATION
is manufactured on the largest scale, and is called for
throughout the length anti breadth of the land, especially
as it is found incapable of* degeneration or deterioration.
Unlike young t?. I* Townsend’s, it improves with age. and
never changes, but for the better; because it is prepared on
ttimtific principles by a scientific man. The highest knowl
edge of Chemistry, and the latest discoveries of the art,
have all been brought into requisition in the manufacture
of the Old Dr’s Sarsaparilla. 'The Sarsaparilla root, it is
well known to medical men, contains many medicinal pro
ponies, and some properties which are inert or useless, and
other*, which if retained in preparing it for use, produce
fermentation anti acid, which is injurious to the system.
Some of the properties of Sarsaparilla are so volatile , that
they entirely evaporate and are lost in -he preparation, if
they are not preserved by a scientific process, known only
to those ex)>erienced in its manufacture. Moreover, these
volatile principles, which fly off in vapor, or as an exhala
tion. under heat, are the very essential medical properties
of the root, which give to it all its value.
Any person can boil or stew the root till they get a dark
colored liquid, w hich is more from the coloring matter in
|he root than from any thing else; they can then strain
this Insipid or vapid liquid, sweeten with sour molasses,
*nd then call it “SARSAPARILLA EXTRACT or SY
RUP.” But such is not the article know nas the
GENUINE OLD DR. JACOB TOWNSEND’S
This is so prepared, that all the inert properties of the
Sarsaparilla root are first removed, every thing capable of
becoming acid or of fermentation, is extracted and rejected ;
then every particle of medical virtue is secured in a pure
and concentrated form ; and tints it is rendered incapable of
losing any of its valuable and healing properties. Prepared
in this way, it is made the most powerful agent in the
Cure of innumerable diseases.
Hence the reason why we hear coinmenihttions on every
side in its favor by men, women, and children. We find it
doing wonders in the cure of
COtfSUMPTIOtf, IJ YSPEPSIA, and LIVER COM
PI.JUMT, and ill RHEUMATISM, SCROFULA.
PILES, COSVIFF.tfESS, all CUTAtfEOUS ERUP
TICtfS, PIMPLES, BLOCTHES, and all affections
IMPURITY OF THE BLOOD.
It possesses a marvellous efficacy in all complaints arising
from Indigestion, from Acidity of the Stomach, from unequal
circulation, determination of blood to the head, palpitation
of the heart, cold feet and hands, cold chills and hot flashes
over the body. It has not its equal in Colds and Coughs ;
and promotes easy expectoration aud gentle perspiration,
relaxing stricture of the lungs, throat, and every other part.
But in nothing is its excellence more manifestly seen and
acknowledged than in ail kinds and stages of
It w orks wonders in cases of Fluor Albus or Whites, Fall
ing of the Womb, Obstructed, Suppressed, or Painful Menses,
Irregularity of the menstrual f*eriods, anti the like ; and
Is as etlectual in curing all the forms of Kidney Diseases.
By removing obstructions, and regulating the general
system, it gives tone and strength to the whole body, aud
thus cures all forms of
Nervous diseases and debility, ■
and thus prevents or relieves a great variety of other mala
tlies, as Spinal irritation, Neuralgia, St. Vitus' Dance
Swooning, Epileptic Fits, Convulsions, &.C.
It cleanses the blood, excites the liver to healthy action,
tones the stomach, and gives good digestion, relieves the
bowels of torpor and constipation, allays inflammation,
.mrifies the skin, equalises the circulation of the blood,
producing gentle warmth equally all over the body, and
the insensible perspiration; relaxes all strictures and tight
ness, removes all obstructions, and invigorates the entire
nervous system. Is not this then
The medicine you pre-eminently need 1
But can any of these things be said of S. P. Townsend’s
inferior article? 'This young man’s liquid is not to be
COMPARED WITH THE OLD DU’S,
because of one GRAND FACT, that the one is INCAPA
BLE of DETERIORATION, and
while the other DOES , souring, fermenting, and blotting
the bottles containing it into fragments ; the soar, acid liquid
exploding, and damaging other goods ! Must not this horri
ble compound he poisonous to the system ! What ! put
acid into a system already diseased with acid! What causes
Dyspepsia but acid ! Do we not all know that when food
lours in our stomachs, what mischiefs it produces ? flatu
lence, heartburn, palpitation of the heart, liver complaint,
riiarrhrea, dysentery, colic, and corruption of the bioodl
What is Scrofula but an acid humor in the body ? What
produces all the humors which bring on Eruptions of the
Skin, Scald Head, Salt Khcum, Erysipelas, White Swell
lugs, Fever Sores, and all ulcerations internal and external!
It is nothing under heaven, but ati acid substance, which
sours, and thus spoils all the fluids of the body, more or
.ess. What causes Rheumatism but a sour or acid fluid
which insinuates itself between the joints and elsewhere,
irritating and inflaming the delicate tissues upon w hich it
acts ? So of nervous diseases, of impurity of the blood, 01
deranged circulations, and nearly all the ailments which
afflict human nature.
Now is it not horrible to make and sell, and infinitely
i corse to use this
SULKING, FERMENTING, ACID “ COM
POUND” OF S. P. TOWNSEND,
mil yet he would fain have it understood that Old Dr. Jacob
Townsend's Genuine Original Sarsaparilla , is an IMITA
TION of his inferior preparation !!
Heaven forbid that wc should deal in an article which
would bear the most distant resemblance to S. P. Town*
*end’s article! and which should bring down upon the Old
Ur. such a mountain load of complaints and criminations
from Agents who have sold, and purchasers who have used
5. P. Townsend’s FERMENTING COMPOUND.
We wish it understood, because it is the absolute truth,
that P. Townsend’s article i;nd Old Dr. Jacob Town
♦end’s Sarsaparilla are heaven-wide court, and infinitely dts
»imilar; that they are unlike in every particular, having
not one single thing in common.
As S. P. Townsend is no doctor, and never was, is no
chemist, no pharmaceutist—knows no more of medicine or
disease than any other common, unscientific, unprofessional
uian. what guarantee can the public have that they are re
ceiving a genuine scientific medicine, containing all the
virtues of the articles nsed in preparing it. and which are in
capable of changes which might render them the AGENTS
of Disease instead of health.
But what else should lie expected from one who knows
nothing comparatively of medicine or disease ! It requires
a person of some experience to cook and serve up even a
common decent meal. How much more important is it thai
the persons who manufacture medicine, designed for
WEAK STOMACHS AND ENFEEBLED SYSTEMS,
should know well the medical properties of plants, the
best manner of securing and concentrating their healing
virtues, also an extensive knowledge of the various diseases
w hich affect the human system, and how to adapt remedies
»o these diseases!
it is to arrest frauds upon the unfortunate, to pour balm
into wounded humanity, to kindle hope in the despairing
bosom, to restore health and bloom, and vigor into the
crashed and broken, and to banish infirmity that OLD DR
JACOB TOWNSEND has SOUGHT aud FOUND the op’
portunity and means to bring his
Grand Universal Concentrated
within the reach, and to the knowledge of all who need It,
that they may learn and know, by joyful experience, its
Transcendent Power to ileal.

Dear Sik :—While so many certificates of
individuals living off at great distances are ap
pearing in the papers commendatory of Bal
sams, Syrups, Pills and Powders, I think it hut
right that medical research and superior success
of soui% of our practitioners at home should be
made known to our community, that those of
our neighborhood who are afflicted may not on
1\ save their health but their money also, andat
the same time encourage the efforts of those who
would give character and consequence to this
sectiou of the Union. I have been led to these
remarks by the teachings of my own experi
About seven years ago 1 was attacked with a
disease of the liver and lungs, accompanied with
hrcmorrhnge or spitting of blood, with severe
and most harrassing and distressing cough, cold
sweats of nights, with a wasting diarrha;r, and
a great part of the time confined to my bed, and
so debilitated generally, that 1 could do but lit
tle in the way of business I thus continued
for over five years, making every effort during
that time to regain my health. I first applied to
thephyscians ofSavannah, where I then resided,
but their efforts failed to relieve me. I then
tried Houck’s Panacea for a long time—then
Wistar’s Balsam of Wild Cherry, &c., till I had
spent hundreds of dollars in their purchase, and
still found myself as bad oft’ as before. I then
applied to your townsman, Dr. M. S. Thomson,
who I am happy to say, after treating my case
some 6 or 7 months, restored me to sound, and
I believe to permanent health, for I am now and
have been for the last 18 months in the enjoy
ment of uninterrupted health. This is my ex
perience, and I doubt not you will agree with
me in the opinion, that I have good reasons for
recommending the Doctor and his remedies in
cases of this kind, far above the most eminent
physicians whose skill I had tested, and the far
famed and much boasted balsams and panaceas
with which 1 hud been dosed. Let others do
likewise, if they would he cured, and that they
may not perish for lack of knowledge, I here

SINCE the deatli of the projectorof this popu
lar Magar.inc, the property has passed into
the hands of the subscriber, who will continue
to publish it at the publication office, No. 109
Nassau street, New York.
The New Volume, to be commenced on the
i first of January, 1850, will comprise many im
portant improvements, which, it is bclievtd,
will render the Magazine one of the best Period
icals published in the country, as it certainly is
the cheapest. Among these improvements will
be new and beautiful type, fine calendered pa
per, a higher order of illustrations than those
heretofore given, and contributions from some of
the ablest writers in America. It is the aim of
the Proprietor to publish a popular Magazine,
adapted to the wants of all classes of reading
people in the Republic, which shall be both in
structive and amusing ; and tree alike from the
grossness which characterizes much of the cheap
literature of the day, and from the vapidity of
the so called “Ladies Magazines ” The illus
trations will consist ofOriginal Drawings engrav
ed on wood by the best Artists ; Portraits of re
markable Persons, and Views of remarkable
Places, illustrated by pen and pencil. A strict
revision will be exercised that no improper arti
cle, or word, shall ever be admitted, so that it
may be safely taken by persons of the utmost re
finement, and read at the fire-side for the amuse
ment or instruction of the family circle.
The Review department ofthe Magazine will
contain brief critical notices ofall the new pub
lications of the day, and will form a complete
chronicle of current literature.
From the business and literary connexions al
ready establisliad, the best assistance that the
eountry can afford will be secured for completing
the plans ofthe publisher, and nothing will be
wanting that ample pecuniary resources and
watchful industry can obtain to make the Mag
azine the leading Literary Periodical of America.
The extremely low rate at which it is published
firecludes the hope of profit, except from a circu
ation greater than that which any literary pe
riodical has ever yet attained; hut, with the new
avenues daily opening for the circulation of
works of merit; the constantly increasing popu
lation ofthe country; the cheapness of the
Magazine, and the superiority of its literary and
artistic attractions to those of any other work
now issued ; the proprietor fearlessly engages
in an enterprise which will be sure to benefit the
public if it should not enrich himself.
The Magazine will he under the Editorial
charge and supervision of Chaiu.es F. Briggs,
who has been connected with it from the begin
ning. The li Pulpit Portraits," a series of Bio
graphical Sketches,accompanied bv well engrav
ed Portraits of eminent Divines of the American
Churches, which have formed a conspicuous fea
ture of “IIOLDEN,” wil 1 be continued in the
succeeding Volumes of the Magazine, and will
render it of peculiar value to religious people ol
The Fifth Volume will commence on the first
of January next, but will be issued on the 15th
of December. Each number will consist of 64
pages, and numerous Engravings. The Terms
are One Dollar a Year in advance —the Magazine
will be plainly and carefully directed and sent
by mail at the risk of the subscriber. As each
number will be stereotyped missing or lost num
bers can be at any time supplied when ordered,
but will be deducted from the time for which

description ofthe bills arc taken, and enclosed

Five copies will he furnished for $4 and 20
copies for sls. Numbers for the year 1848, ex
cepting the month of January, will be furnished

A Congressional, Agricultural and Litcro
'['HE approach of Congress calls out Hie a
X nual Prospectus of the Globe Establi.i
utent. u '
The time is full of interest. The comin*
of anew Administration—tiie consequent broa/i"
ing ofa new poiiey touching the internal co "'
cerns ofthe country—the new and most imn
taut issues arising from the late vast accession!
the public domain, aud the great national obieci
associated with it—the impending difficulty '
our relations with France,and the possible com"
plication of our affairs with the troubles of K !'
rope,—conspire to create great expectation as m
the proceedings of the next Congress. The
proaching Session will probably continue lilt u?"
in the summer of 1850. The debates from it “
agitation of so many questions of vital'intere,!.
the Republic, will draw forth all the talent of
the National Legislature. To bring its delibera
lions home to the people, on each succeeding
day, while measures are maturing, is, j„ cff 6
to bring the whole nation into council Ti ’
discussion, spreading from the Capitol to tl, e re"
rnotest parts ofthe Union, forms a public coin
ion which reacts upon Congress and controls it
To become a useful instrument, however hum
hie, to assist the working of the admirable nit
chinerv of our popular institutions, is the ambi
tion of tlic conductor of the Globe. Extraor
dinary preparations have therefore been made to
meet the increasing demands of our rapidly j m .
proving and gruwingcountry for Congressional
The Globe Press has already enlisted the
ablest Reporters yet known to Congress ; its
materials and machinery are of the best sort •
and the exclusive devotion of the individual who
for so many years has made it his study to embo
dy and publish the labors of Congress, gives rea
son to hope that an advance will be made in the
accomplishment of this undertaking commensu
rate with its increased importance. But the ac
cumulation of expense consequent on the addi
tional number of Reporters required—the extra
charges incurred in printing at night the debates
ofthe preceding day—the vast addition made to
the mass published, by the protracted sessions
and the fuller reports given,—will render our
enterprise a failure, unless Congress shall so far
patronize it as to become a purchaser of such
portion ofthe daily sheets issued,as shall contri
butc to make the reports that fill them. Tho
undersigned has ventured on the preparation lie
has made for the next Session, in the expectation
that Congress wiil subscribe for as many daily
sheets for each Member, at the subscription price
as will, in part, defray the expense of reporting,
and give them circulation as Congressional docu
ments in their several districts. This will ena
ble the Publisher to bear the charge of reporting,
and it will give an impulse to the circulation of
the Congressional Print, which, although tho
cheapest in the Union (the expense of prepara
tion considered) will yet yield sufficient profit to
make the system permanent.
John C. Rives having purchased the interest
ofF. P. Blair in Jackson Hall—the printing
office machinery aud material—becomes llie sole
proprietor thereof, and will give his exeksive
attention to the Congressional Department.
J. C. Pickett will conduct the Miscellaneous
Department of the Newspaper. F. P. Blair
retires from both concerns, witii prayers for their
permanent usefulness and prosperity.
The Globe will be published daily duringthe
session of Congress, and Weekly the remainder
of the year, and will undergo distribution in the
form ofa Weekly Globe, a Congressional Globe
and an Appendix.
The Weekly Globe will contain Agricultural
and miscellaneous articles ; and will occasion
ally give debates of such importance as coiriiuuiid
The price of tlie Weekly Globe is reduced to
One Dollar, with a view to obtain a more gene
ral circulation. Subscribers who have hitherto
paid $2 per annum, will be charged only $1 af
ter the expiration of the first year.
The Congressional Globe will embody, as it
has done for the last sixteen years, Congression
al pioceedings and debates exclusively.
The Appendix will embrace the revised
speeches separately, and the messages of the
President of the United States, and the reports
of the Heads oftlie Executive Departments.
The Congressional Globe and Appendix will
be published as fast as the proceedings of Con
gress will make a number Subscribers may ex
pect one number of each a week during the first
four weeks of a session, and two or three num
bers of cacli a week afterwards, until the end of
the session. Each volume will probably com
prise two thousand royal quarto pages, of small
Complete Indexes to the Congressional Globe
and Appendix will be sent to subscribers soon
after Congress adjourns.
Nothing of a political party aspect will appear
in the Globe save that which will be found in
the Congressiohal reports. A paper assuming
to be an impartial vehicle for all sides, cannot
maintain its character if the editorial columns
reflect a party hue.

Postmasters who may obtain subscribers will
be allowed twenty per cent, on the subscription
prices for single papers, which they may retain
when they send on the names of subscribers ar.d
