"TT^HICH has now been published near seven
W months, has met with such a success as to
ustify the proprietor in enlarging the daily edition
to the size of the Washington Union.
The States will continue to represent the sound
constitutional principles of States'-rights which
have ever been upheld by the National Democra-
cy, but it will not be so entirely political that its
columns will interest the politician exclusively,
nor so subservient to party as to betray principle
at the command ef power, or disguise its convic-
tions at the suggestions of expediency.
In addition to the discussion of important po
litical questions, its columns will be devoted to
the proceedings of Congress, to the current tran
actions of the Government, to geueial news, and
matters of interest appertaining to literature, ag-
riculture and commerce.

Payment in all cases is reqni ed invariably in

the receipt of the money.
As Congress will soon assemble, and as it is
expected that it will be one of the most iinpoitmt
and interesting sessions ever convened in the Me-
tropolis, it must be an object with persons at a
distance to secure the- earliest and most reliable
intelligence from the capitol.
In order, therefore, to oblige those who desire

City, during the session of Congress, we propose
to furnish the Weekly Stat en on the following

ED BUGS EXTERMINATED! It has
now been tested beyond the possibility oT a
doubt, that Louden & Co.'s Cherokee Liniment
is the imst certain, safe and speedy preparation
for the entire destruction of Bed Bugs and their
Eggs, or Nits, that has ever before been offered
to the public. The Cherokee Liniment may
always be used with entire safety, and is not of-
fensive or dangerous like turpentine or corrosive
sublimate—the latter being a deadly poison fo
persons as well as bugs. Turpentine is not only
offensive, but ineffectual in killing those vermin.
The Cherokee Liniment is warranted to perform
as above stated. The money will be refunded if
satisfaction is not given. Apply with a feather

Eaton Institute is located in a beautiful ami
picturesque country — celebrated as a healtljy
location. In these respects, no school is ínor^
favorably located. It is surrounded by an int.e%
ligent and religious community. Students will
here be entirely free from those demoralizing in.
fiuences that prey upon the cduca'ioiiai interests
in our towns, and so often lead the youth, re-
moved from paternal restraint, into dissipation
and viee. Parents and guardians who watch
with jealous care the moral charactcr cf their
children and wards, will have no hesitancy in
placing Ihem at this Institution.
Many instructors in our own State and else-
where, are compelled to observe many youDg
men of noble promise and lofty aspirations,grad-
ually sink into vicious indulgences. The instruc-
tor may strive against these influences, but they
cannot be wholly resisted. The fondest hopes
of the parent and teachware thus blasted. The
location of Eaton Institute is entirely free from
these evil and pernicious influences.
A primary object cf the instructors will be to
sccuiife complete system in the daily duties of
their students, and superinduce those habito of
industry and morality that will subsequently be
developed in an elevated character and noble
i ctiftnB. The students, therefore, of flic Male

"SOIL OF THE SOUTH'
THE editors and proprietors of the American
Cotton Planter having purchased the
Soil of the South, take pleasure in announcing
to the patrons of both Journals, and to the friend."-
of Agricultural Improvement in the South and
south-west, that with the January number for
1857 will commence the publication ofthc Ameri.
can Cottm Planter and Soil of the South, uni-
ted, in the city of Montgomery, Alabama.
In thus uniting the publication of these tv/e
Agricultural Journals, we have secured the able
services of Col. Charles A. Peabody, as Horti-
cultural Editor, whose reputation, both as Editor
and practical Hoiticulturalist, is too well and
widely known to require adrlitianal commenda-
tion at our hands.
With the efficient aid of Col. Peabody, in the
Horticultural Department, Dr. N. B. Cloud, the
Agricultural Editor, confidently assures the pat-
rous and friends of both papers, thus united, that
the American Cotton Planter and Soil of the
South, shall be a
Southern Rural Slnsazine,
devoted to improve Plantation Economy, the
advancement ot Southern Hon ¡culture, with
i\lanuractures and the Domestie and Mechanic
Art. In short, it is the intention and will be the
studied desire of the Editors and Publishers of
this Journal to make it, in its several Depart
incuts, the plantation and fireside companion of
every family and industrial man in the South.
The Cotton Planter and Soil will bn published
monthly, in magazine form, coniaining thirty-
two pages, super Royal Octavo, stitched, t limed
