WEEKLY * REVIEW.
GALVESTON, TEXAS, )
Friday Evbniko, June 11,1s75. |
The country advices from all portions of the
State Rive good accounts of tho crop®. In
most sections, indeed, the prospect is repre-
sented to be about as good as it oould be at
this season of the year. The favorable
weather of the past fortnight has given an
impetus to the growth which has done not a
little toward repairing tho backwardness of
the season heretofore. Cotton bolls are abun-
dant in most sections, and corn ia laid by.
Tho wheat crop of Northern and Central
Texas is turning out well—fully up to expec-
tation, it is said.
The crop prospect in other sections of the
South is also represented to be very favor-
able. Tho New Orleans Price Current of the
fth instant contains the following:
Tite Prospect.—Everything at present in
dicatee a gradual and healthy revival of tho
general industry of the country, but more
particularly of the t-outh; this section having
been the most depressed, is naturally the
first to feel the slight revival of better times,
which, in the Wofrtern and Northwestern
States, is hardly noticed. But not alone does
the South feel the chango for a better future
keener than the rest of the country, her pros-
pects sre really brighter than those of ?ome
of her sister States. Never since the war
hava crop prospects boon so encouraging—
and thou we have no grafshoppers; never in
the history of this country have the Southern
planters made such an effort to become at
least partially independent of Western food
crops as this season; all accounts tell of an
increase of corn, of wheat ready for the har-
vester, of oats, rye and root crops in abund-
ance. Hogs also are not neglected, and live
stock of a'l descriptions comes in for a share
t)f the husbandman's care.
Then, again, manufactures are langnishingin
the Eastern and Northern States profits have
dwindled to nothing, or have been turned in-
to a deficit; the mill owner naturally inquires
into the best method to rebuild his fallen for-
tunes and the most plausible one that pre-
sents itself is, to reduce the cost of manufac-
ture. Hut how can this be done t Labor is
a'ready so low that the wages paid barely
si.pporr the factory hands and their fatnil es
in the cheapest possible manner, and there
appears no other remedy. The mill owners
are, however, about to answer their own in-
quiry by, moving the factory nearer the cot
ton fields, so as ta«ave the expenses of freight
and handling while their raw material is iu
transit. The consummation of this move will
bring capital and an increased demand for all
the sundry crops the Southern farmer can
ra so. Our prospect indeed looks bright.
Tho fet. Louis Trade Journal again adverts
to tho difficulties besetting St. Louis cotton
statistics. It says:
How would It do for the officers of tho St.
Louis Cotton Exchange to examine and com-
pare their receipts of cotton with those of the
Merchants' Exchange, and learn the cause of
the discrepancy? It may bo a matter of small
moment to the officers of the Cotton Exchange
to know that the books of the Merchants' Ex-
change showed receipts since September 1st,
1K71, Wednesday, of 2254 bales more than was
shown by the records of the Cotton Exchange;
but if the latter desires the support of the
larger body it might be well to drop the hap-
hazard style of doing business and adopt more
St. Louis had better take our advice: give
up cotton, which is too much for its faculties*
and spread itself upon sowbelly, for which it
ha* both a weakness and a talent.
The New York Bull ft in of the 7th refers to
the heaviest cotton shipment of the year as
heavy cotton shipments.
The ship WilliamTapscott, Captain Morgan,
sailed for Liverpool on Saturday, from Pier
No. 53, North River, taking out a cargo con-
Fisting of 6159 bales of cotton, which is the
largest cargo of this staple ever takon from
any port in the United Scatea, with a single
exoeptioA. The instance excepted is the
cargo of the ship Ocean Monarch, a vessel of
larger tonnage. Within ten days, several
other large cargoes have gone out, all loaded
at ihe Empire Cotton Press, viz: Niagara.
5358 bales; Metcalf, 4331 bales; Bertaux, 3520
During the w6ek just ended our local mar-
ket has beon a dull one in most departments,
with declines in most of them.
Our loading staplo has dragged down stead-
ily, iu sympathy with other markets,'foreign
and domestic, and shows a decline of more
than since our last review. The demand
in still inadequate, and the movement dis_
tresslngly slow, even at the gradually shrink,
in** values. The week's receipts are quite
ample fo.* the soason, and are In decided con"
trastwith last week's small aggregate. For
the first time of late the week's receipts at all
ports shoW an excess over both last week and
tho corresponding week last year The week's
exports to (ireat Britain have boon : From
New Orleans, 3980; Mobile,1332; Savannah,1902;
Charleston, 4871; New York, 14,069 ; and other
jorts, 1001. To France : From Hew Orleans'
•Jilt) ; New York, 1015; and other ports, 289.
To the channel ports : From Galveston, 583.
During the week there has been no change
in our market for freight, exchange and spe-
cie. Coffee has declined )(c. and is very quiet
ab. thocloso. Lard has declined VfO-, and so
has breakfast bacon—other hog products re-
maining unchanged. Hides have been very
quiet tho whole week, with little or no change
in price*. Wool has weakened decidedly, and
prices have given way fully 2c. since last Fri-
day, with a very easy feeling in to day's mar-
ket. Burry wool is almost unsaleable, and
priccs of such are entirely nominal. Whisky
is stronger but hardly quotably higher, and
flour has advanced 50c. $1 barrel.
Among our cotton people the theme of dis-
cussion is still the new rules passed by the
Cotton Exchange and publiahed in this col-
umn of yesterday's issue. The document
wi>l reappear in our weelly edition, aud we
commeud lc to the careful perusal of our in-
terior frionds. We believe the measure
fr.-iught with unqualified good for the cotton
producer, and that it will afford him a de-
gree of protection in his rights of property

Departure from New Orleans Till
Dr. E. Do F. Curtis, M. 1>.5 F.R.C.S.,
" MANHOOD,1' " MEDICAL ESSAYS ON
While returning his sincerc thanfcs to his
numerous patients in Galveston, and the ad-
jacent Southern country, for the flattering
evidences of their confidence and esteem re-
ceived by him, des^es to announce that he
Will Leave New Orleans on tbe
Twelfth Day of J une Next
foi San Francisco, California, where h© ha3
business interests to protect, and which will
require his presence for the next two years
at least. In making this announcement thus
early, it is for the purpose of saving from dis-
appointment many who desire to place them-
selves under his care, but who fail to call till
tho last few days of his stay; and in fact, as
in former years, have called at his office after
his departure, much to his regret and their
disappointment. In order, therefore, that no
one may have an excuse for missing the oppor
HIS PERSONAL ATTENTION,
those who wish to place themselves under his
caro should CALL AT ONCE at his rooms.

DR. CURTIS has devoted himself for a
period ranging over twenty years, and adopt-
ed, as his specialties, the treatment and cure
NERVOUS AND PHYSICAL DEBILITY,
Exhausted Vitality, Premature Decline,
Abuses of tho System, and such general
functional derangements as spring from the
above causes, or are incident to an enervated
and depleted condition of tho organs.
DR. CURTIS addresses himself to those
who have already yielded to the suggestions
and besought the care of ignorant advertMuig
charlatans, from whom they have received,
no benefit, and who, in fact,have done them"
more material harm than practical good. It
is conceded that Medicine, like all other
sciences, is progressive, and every year but
records some new development or marked ad-
vance. By a felicitous combination of reme-
dies of acknowledged curative power, Dr.
CURTIS has so arranged and adapted hi.s
treatment as to afford not only immediate re-
lief, but radical and permanent cure.
The Medical Times says: 44 Dr. Curtis's sys-
tem of treatment, the result of twenty years
successful practice, differs from all others in
general U3e, and commends itself to the af-
flicted as the only true source of relief. Many
c*ses pronounced incurable have yielded suc-
cessfully to his remedies."
DR. CURTIS would again impress upon the
minds of all who contemplate consulting him,
the duty of Calling Without Delay.
