ritOffll Ol'tt EVENING EDITION
THE PEOPLE OF GEOBUI A.
The following frank utterances are taken
from an article iu the Macon Journal «fc Mes
senger. Iu the light of such words as these
it should be seen that the feeling of the peo
ple is iu a satisfactory condition. It should
also be seen that witli a people who so fully
realize their position with the government,
and so well appreciate the duties which their
new relations impose, all adulation for pre
tended sentiment and wordy menacing against
honest feeling, will be rated at exactly what
they are worth:
As tar as we can judge, there is no partic
ular occasion for imputing to the people of
Georgia a disinclination to adapt themselves
to circumstances, and to conform cheerfully
to the necessities of the times. It*they make
no noisy demonstrations of zeal tor the
Union just now, it is probably owing to the
tact that the transition from opposition to
subjection to its authority, has beeu too
sudden to admit of a hearty change of sen
timent from enmity to love. A loug pro
tracted and desolatiug war has had its na
tural effects, and the people are now anxious
mainly to be left in peace and the enjoy
ment of such rights as the victors, in the
plentitude oi their jjower and mercy, may
9ee proper to grant. Their future attach
ment to the Union will probably he contin
gent upon the benefits which that Union
may confer. They were, we doubt not,
more reluctant to sever their connection
with the U. 8. Government ‘than they now
are to reunite with it, and but for real or
imaginary grievances, they would never
have placed themselves in antagonism to it.
They loved it once—they may love it again
if it proves such a Union as its founders de
signed it to be. As yet, the people have not
had time to determine whether, in returning
to t heir former allegiance, they are to be
benefited or injured. Many of those who
who persuaded them to secede are now
impelling them into the embrace of. the
Union. Is it surprising that they should ques
tion the sincerity of such tickle advisers, and
doubt the propriety of implicit obedience to
their behests ?
The people of Georgia acknowledge the
fact of their being agatu in the Union and
subiect to its constitution and laws. To that
constitution and those laws they will yield a
ready obedience, and when it becomes the
pleasure of the Federal authorities to allow
them the exercise of those civil rights once
accorded to the people of the respective
Slates by the constitution of the United
States, they will gladly avail themselves ot
the privilege of organizing for themselves a
competent State government.

The Fibst Water Melon of the Season.
—On Saturday last, Mr Nicholas Geil, gar
dener, on the east side of Lovers Lane, pick
ed on his farm the first water melon of the
season. Major General Birge, with several
friends, enjoyed the melon as a compliment
from Mr. Geil,
Serious Accident —On Sunday last, Pat
rick Cooper, a laborer, while the steamer
Emilie was leaving the Commissary wharf,
fell between the steamer and the wharf. HU
head was badly crushed. He wa3 taken in an
iusensible condition to his residence on Bay
Lane, near Price street. He now lies in a
very critical condition. %
The Attraction of Rank.— lt is said that
the Board of Officers before whom officers of
volunteers and regulars desirous of remain
ing in the service are ordered to appear for
examination, find that at least one half of the
regular officers promoted to higher grades in
the volunteer rank are not disposed to return
to their old positions.
\ eoetari.es, Etc.—Our marKet is now
supplied with tomatoes, okra and apples.
The first are selling at fitly cent 9 per quart;
the second at seventy-five cents, and the lat
ter at twenty-five cents. From the Jasper
Spring Nursery we have received delicious ap
ples. In three weeks time we shall be fur
nished by Mr. G. Brown, of the nursery,
with pears of a select variety.
Thb Trial ok Davis. — Of tlie two papers
published in Washington, liotli claiming to
sjieak officially, one announces an immediate
civil trial in court there for Davis, and the
other announces either a military court, or a
trial in Pennsylvania or Maryland. It is now
eontidenily asserted that the mode and time
will not be settled until the close of the pre
sent military court. It appears that the ac
tion ot the civil court in linding the indict
ment was commenced without consulting the
President?' consequently the Administration
is not constrained to try him in that way
should any other form present itself, deemed
better by the Administration.
Cut Ac Lano— -We arc informed that a
plantation in Bibb couuty was sold the other
day, at one dollar per acre, the buyer as
suming all liabilities for tax. This is conclu
sive of one of two things, either that lands
are very much depreciated in value, or that
taxation promises to become so oppressive a
burthen as to render the possession of pron
ely undesirable. Either way, the prospect
ottuture prosperity U rather dim.—diW,
Chicago has anew opera house, which
cost half a million of dollars, and will hold
three thousand people.

The special correspondent of the "Philadel
phia Inquirer, writes from Fortress Mouroe,
June r»th. It seems that Davis positively
ironed, whatever lias been or may Ire said to
the contrary. The correspondent says :
We have the arch-rebel still among us, all
reports to the contrary notwithstanding. He
has not stirred out of his casemate since the
day he was first immured within its thick
stone walls. He has not taken a syigie ex
cursion up the Potomac since Ills incarcera
tion, either on gunboat 01 monitor. In fact,
Jeff, is closely guarded ; twenty-six armed
men stand guard over him night and day.—
Two soldiers with loaded and bayonetted
muskets pace incessantly to and fro in his
r ell. These dungeons sentries walk in op
posite directions to each other, to and fro
across the cell. The prisoner is always un-
der the eyes of one of them. A commission
ed officer, too, continually keeps w atch and
w ard within the cell.
' Since the removal of tlio irons Jeff takes
his confinement more resignedly. He is so
cially disposed, and is ever opening conver
sations, which cannot be kept up, as the of
ficer's are not allowed to talk to him. There
is neither chair nor table in his cell. No
books nor papers are allowed him, neither
pen, ink, pencil nor paper. There are excep
tions in the way of books. Two volumes are
allowed the prisoners, the Bible and Book of
Common Prayer. These two are certainly
the two books of all others most needed by
Clement C. Clay bears his confinement
with the same dignified philosophy as at its
commencement. He oecassioually express
es concern for Mrs. Clav. Clay is an invet
erate smoker; tobacco' is furnished him, and
the most ot his waking hours are occupied in
puffing the soothing weed. His food is the
the regular array ration, of which lie par
takes but sparingly. His cell is as barely
furnished as is that of Iris chief in crime. The
only books permitted him are the Bible and
‘Prayer Book. Writing materials and the
newspapers are rigidly excluded.
The Excitement in the Pennsylvania
A correspondent of the Philadelphia lu
quirer writing from Schuylkill Haven, June
Though there was no actual outbreak
among the miners, no breakers having been
destroyed as stated, there was some excite
ment among them.
There are contradictory stories as to vio
lence used, which I do not deem it proper to
publish. Several operators, however, receiv
ed annonymous notes of warning.
The Two-hundred-and-second Regiment is
on duty in these regions, the companies bein ir
quartered at Ashland, Pottsville, and other
No mines are being worked, at least to any
exteut, and the miners have been out of Work
for some six weeks. The laborers will not

The inclined plane leading from the coal
breaker of Kirk & Bawn, at Crow Hollow,
was set on fire by miners, and the breaker it
self was only saved by tearing away a por
tion of the structure, There is no doubt in
regard to this occurrence, but the impression
largely prevails throughout the whole mill
ing district that the great majority of the
miners are well disposed, and could easily
control the violent minority if they were al
lowed to go to work.
It is asserted by the miners that the object
of the operators is to run coal up to a big
price, aud that their request for troops has
only been made to cover their real designs
on the market.
Brea. Brio. Gen. C. L. Kilburn.—Col.
Chas. L. Kilburp, Chief Commissary oi the
South, has been promoted to the position of
Brevet-Brigadier General, his commission
dating from March 18th, 18C.’>, Geu. Kilburn
graduated at West Point in 1842, and conse
quently has been 23 years in service. In the
Mexican War he served as a Lieutenant of
Artillery in Bragg’s Battery, aud was iu
the Florida War as Commissary of Subsis
tence, emigrating “Billy Bowlegs” as Indian
Agent. At the commencement of the pre
sent war Captain Kilburn was iu New Or
leans. He succeeded in getting away from
the South after considerable difficulty and
reported to tiie authorities at Washington
abmit the time of the surrender of Sumter.
The efficiency and urbanity of General Kil
ourn, are features of liis character so well
known and appreciated in the Department
of the South, that every one having the plea
sure of his acquaintance, will feel sincerely
gratified over this evidence of recognition on
the part of Governmect, as to his worth and

Edwin Boom, Esq — -Dear .Sir and liro . The
undersigned, at a regular communication ot
the New York Lodge, No. 330, were appoint
ed a committee to draft a .letter of fraternal
greeting in consideration of recent occurren
ces not unknown to the public.
They approach the subject with much del
ieacy of feeling, and would at the threshold
beg you to believe that they are actuated on
ly by those high aud holy motives which con
tiol Masonic intercourse.
Your receut communications which have
been made public through the medium of the
press relating to the mournful calamity which
has lately befallen our common country, have
impressed us with a sense of solemn duty to
you, to whom, as a brother of our Lodge, we
owe special consideration.
While as Masons, we are hot called upou
to take part in, or espouse auy political cause
or object, we cauuot refuse the expression of
our long time aud continued confidence in
your loyalty and good-standing asu citizen of
the United States, aud as men aud Masons
fully endor ing your status throughout the
Masonic anil civic world.
It affords us distinguished pleasure to be
the orgin of New York Lodge iu making
this communication, aud to assure you iii
fullest personal and Masonic confidence of
the complete aud entire reliance of the
Lodge, and of all those who know you best,
that your political condition and fealty to the
laws and Coustitutiou of the United States
has even beeu firm and steadfast.
Your noble heart, generous nature, and
liberal disposition have ever contributed to
the common advancement, of our fraternity,
and we feel a just pride iu being thus per
mitted to respond to the sentiment which you
have so recently publicly announced. With
the most extreme delicacy we indulge the
hope that the future may prove that no “pri
vate woe” may be realized by you, by reason
of the recent occurrence at the national
Capitol; and should our thoughts in this re
spect result in contradiction, it may not be
improper to say that the members of New
Y r ork Lodge, in common with the country at
large, will most enthusiastically join a loud
acclaim to the Great Master of the Universe,
in grateful thanks for the merciful relief that
must result to you and yours; aud if. on the
contrary, it should appear that our hopes are
unsubstantial, we tender you our delicate
sympathies, and most sincere condolence in
the domestic affliction which must necessa
Iu any event, dear brother, we can from
personal and fraternal knowledge of you, and
your private and public career in our midst,
endorse you as a good man, a true friend, a
loyal citizen, and' a faithful brother, and if
advice were ueeded, we might very properly
■add in the words of the poet,
“ Honor and shame from no condition rise ;
Act well your part, there allthe honor lies.”
In conclusion, dear brother, permit us in
the discharge of this fraternal duty, to add to
our official communication our individual
sympathies and renewed confidence under
the trying circumstances which now appear
to surround you; and should our hopes fail
of realization, we can but commend you to
the beneficent goodness of the All-wise and
merciful Being, who
” Tempers the wind to the shorn lamb.”
We subscribe ourselves with very high of
Your friends anil brothers—William J.

Brothers: Your fraternal and consoling
letter has come to me at the hour of my
greatest need. It is very comforting amid
the dreadful darkness which shrouds my
present and my future.
If there can be compensation for such a
calamity us has overtaken me, it is to be
found in the sentiments you so gracefully ex
press and as I believe sincerely entertaiu for
I thank you, brethren, for the great relief
your cheering words convey.
It has pleased Gjd to afflict mj r family as
noue other was ever afflicted
The nature, manner, and extent of the
crime which has been laid -at our door, has
crushed me to the very earth ; the detesta
tion and abhorrence of the act, in all its at
titudes are inexpressible ; my grief is unut
terable, and were it not for the sympathies of
such friends as you it would be intolerable.
Y'ou bear witness to my loyalty, you know
my persistent, aod to some extent successful
efforts to elevate our name, personally and
professionally. For proof of this I appeal
to tire records of the pa«t.
For the future, also, I struggle on in my
retirement bearing a heavy heart, an oppres
sed memory, and a wounded name—dread
ful burdens—to my too welcome grave.
