HortrulturaJ_. From the Xew Orleans Picayune. COTTON. 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 lower! 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 fcj lungs. Tlneon Daguorrcan Gallery. Jt.

( Al l ION EXTRA 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 HEALING POWER. 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 SARSAPARILLA. 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 arising from 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 FEMALE COMPLAINTS. 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 NEVER SPOILS, 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 Keinedy 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.

Mr. Smith is a printer by profession, and is employ ed in that office—he relates his experience , which after all is the best criterion by which to judge of the value of remedies. Advertisements and high sounding statements may be set forth, and thus give an ephemeral character and existence to remedies, which when judged by this test, lose all their value, and become defunct; not so, however, with those which have thus been test ed, and have passed through the ordeal; for of them, we state what has occurred, aud front that deduce what may be expected . But to the com munication, it will speak for itself. Macon, Jan. 14, 1850. S. J. Ray, Editor Georgia Telegraph : 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 ence : 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 by request that you will give publicity to rr.y statement in your widely circulating sheet, and much oblige yours, respectfully, JOHN H. SMITH. The following letters are given, not so much on account of the facts they contain, though they are important, as to give an idea or specimen of many of the same kind that are borne to the subscriber by almost every Mail from the North, South, East and West. They were notintended for publication, and are therefore the more to be relied on, and appreciated. Benjamin Jones' Letter. Traveller’s Rest, Dooly Cos. Ga. ) Januury 16, 1850. ) Dr. M. S. Thomson, Dear Sir :— I hope you will excuse n.r, for not writing to you sooner. I have not forgot you, neither will 1 forget to pay you when 1 sell my cotton. I am much gratified in being able to announce that my son has got almost entirely well, so much so, that all those symptoms of disease have left him, but the enlargement of the spleen which has not entirely gone. To look at his situation eight months buck, and to look at him now, it seems almost ns one risen from the dead. I say to you, there is no more healthy looking youth in all this county, indeed his wliulc sys tem is regular and easy. God knows how long lie will remain so, but I hope he will to the end of life. He has not taken any medicine for the last four months, yet he is thirty pounds heaver than before that time. 1 had applied to Physi cians, of both the Mineral and Botanic Schools, of eminent general qualifications, hut all to no benefit, but thanks to God, and gratitude to you for Ins restoration. My feelings are indeed un speakable. BENJAMIN JONES. Win. W. Walker's Letter. Wartuen’s Store, Washington Cos. J January 2, 1850. ) Dr. M. S. Thomson, Dear Sir :—lt is with pleasure that I write to you, to inform you of the improvement of my health. I have followed your directions as near as I have been able, and 1 think I have not missed the proper way far. The medicine is nearly gone, and I feel like anew man. I have not changed much in my appearance, but surely in my feelings lam well. I now can enjoy my self with my family, my neighbors and even myself; this world looks bright, and I feel hap py in the anticipation of the future. lam en tirely free from almost every symptom of the disease with which I have been afflicted. If you think I had better take some more medicine to make sure of it, please send it and oblige, Yours respectfully, WM. W. WALKER.

SINCE the deatli of the projectorof this popu lar, 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 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 every denomination. 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 payment has been received.

DIETZ, Proprietor. dec I the gloss, A Congressional, Agricultural and Litcro Newspaper. '['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 decisions. ,ls 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 intelligence. 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 universal interest. 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 type. 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.
