THE NEW FOOD.

Sea-Moss Farine.

This new and elegant preparation, made from Irish Moss, or Carrageen, is conceded to be the cheapest, healthiest, and most delicious food in the world. As a delightful table dessert it has no equal, and as a light and delicate food for Invalids and Children it is superior to all kindred preparations.

The new article of food has everywhere won " golden opinions” of all sorts of people, and the housekeepers of the land generally regard it in the double light of a staple' necessary and a delicious luxury, for while it lessens the expense of living, the exquisite dishes prepared from it cannot be obtained, even at an extravagant cost, from any other source. For twenty-five cents you can buy a package which will make sixteen quarts of Blanc Mange, and a like quantity of Puddings, Custards, Creams, Charlotte Russe, &c.

THE CREAT SPRING TONIC.

Plantation Bitters.

This wonderful vegetable restorative is the sheet-anchor of the feeble and debilitated. As a tonic and cordial for the aged and languid it has no equal among stomachics. As a remedy for the nervous weakness to which women are especially subject, it is supersedlog every other stimulant. In all climates – tropical, temperate, or frigid - it acts as a specific in every species of disorder which undermines the bodily strength and breaks down the animal spirits. Wherever it is introduced it becomes a standard article, –

STAR PUZZLE.

Were paid for

taxes to U S. Government during four years by the House of Lorillard. This amount is not exceeded by any Tobacco House in the world.

Their Century Chewing Tobacco is now made of choice, sweet, Re-dried, and sun-cured leal of the best attainable varieties.

LORILLARD'S Yacht Club Smoking is made of Oronoka, or Hy o Leaf, of N. C. and V 1., esteemed among jud ges as the finest tobacco for the purpose ever found, and prepared by an original and pat-nted process, whereby the bitter and acrid propercies, as well as the nicotine, is extracted, rendering It mild and harmless to nervous constitutions ; it has a d-lightful aroma, leaves no disagreeable taste, and will not burn the tongue if a good pipe is used.

The Eureka Smoking is also a favorite Brand, being made of choice Virgiuia, and always burns free and sinooth ; has an agreeable flavor, but is of heavier body than the Yacht Club, and cheaper in price ; by mix. ing these two together an article of any desired strength may be obta ned.

As an evidence of the popularity of Lorillard's Smoking, would say over 10,000,000 packages were suld uuring 1869, and still the demand increases.
