INDIANA COTTON MILL

The mill is now turning out daily, fifteen thousand two hundred and fifty two yards of goods, worth at the present rates, 8 1/4 cents per yard -- equal to one thousand two hundred and fifty-eight dollars.

We presume that those who have hard doubt as to the success of cotton manufacturing establishments on the Ohio, will soon be willing to yield these opinions and acknowledge that cotton can be worked as profitably in the Ohio valley as in the East.

The mill, we are assured, is doing a fine business. It has never since it first began operation, run with such great speed and with so much steadiness, as within the last few months.
