tion of direct cummuuicetion with the North
The reconstruction of this line of Railroad
should be regarded with much satisfaction by
all citizens of Georgia; that it has been done
at the expense of the United States Govern

the good will and kindly interest of the au

and their character were the product of a
peculiar organization of Southern society
and institutions, which have passed away,
never again to return. It would be utterly
impossible for them to exist in their old
character and relationship, in the new order of
things. The new era will assuredly have its
new men. Even were the old leaders to try to
adapt themselves to the altered stated affairs
they would fail ol success ; for the great
body of the people iu the South have com

have all been exploded, their predictions
Falsified and their windy brag made ridicu
