-HINTS TO BEE KEEPERS." From Samuel
Snider, of this county, we have roceivod tho above
entitled work, by II. A. King & Co., of Nevada, 0.,
ho will send a copy of this book frco of cbargo to
any bco-keeper. The Boston Oultivator styles mis
work "Bee-keeping in a nut shell. ' It is as con
densed and thorough a work on tho subject as wo
ever saw. Messrs. King A Co. aro also the patentees
for the American Boo Hive, which, with its lato im
provements, is certainly as near perfection as any
thing wo have yet seen.
TnE TUNNEL. As many of our citiiens seem
yery anxious and suggestive with regard to con
Teying the water down Atlantia etreet.it gives us
sincere pleasure to inform them that Mr. Wilson, has
according to contract tunneled through tho hill at
his own expense a sufficient tunnel to convey off all
the water likely to fall before the whole street is
finished, and a firm ditch and embankment will be
made to turn it into the tunnel. It gratifies us
much to ease the minds of our tr'i'cal citizens, so
that they may turn their attention to other and
uccro prcfitable fields of investigation,
The Louisville Journal savsi "Don't advertise
it is a very bad plan. It will call attention to you
place of business, and it is much better for Deonl
who wish to trade with you to hunt you up. It
gives your customers exercise," and makes them
neaimy. uesides, ifyou advertise somebody will
ouy up au or your goods, and then you will have
w get more, and it will be a great bother to you.
Don't do it. Stowart, and Ayer, and Bonner, and
ociiuuck, ana or, :ers, never advertise. They have
u iuea mat it injures taeir business."
THE U. S. EXPRESS has expired on the Missouri
river ; in other words, by an arrangement between
the U.S. Express company and tho Merchant's Union
Company, the latter gets the exclusive right, as be

the Missouii river, tho former withdrawing entirely.
This is a Lugo joke upon Capt. Carson, who, as
Agent of the U. S.. took it in its infancy, made for
it frien ds and business, and ha to relinqush just as
we are expecting an increased business by reason of
an early railroad connection.

There has been but litt'o change in Gold a
shade lower, but quite steady, since the empeach-
ment of tho Pro ident has become a fixed fact.
Government bonds are V cent lower than
last quotations, and havo a downward tendency.
Tho New York Tribune, in commenting upon the
financial situation says :
"The permanent effect of impeachment upon the
general business of the country is by no means sure
to be disastrous, but tho reverse. The deposition
of President Johnson, and the accession of Vice
President ade to the Executive chair, followed as
the latter would bo by reconstruction in the Cab
inet, would give the country a Government which
would be a unit, in place of the discordant elements
now controlling tho country. Under the new order
of things the material interests of the people
would revive, and long engagements for oapital be
made with the conviction that uudora Government
fully controlled by the Republican party, its pol-
tical and financial troubles would bo soon har
monized and obliterated. The peoplo throughout
the count rv already take this view of thecaso.and
feel relief that the discordant elements in the Gov
ernmental to bo removed, and stability and unity
of purpose secured, under which alone commerce
