'JX) THE CITIZENS OF GEORGIA
The termination of a sanguinary contest, which for
the past four years has presented an impassable barrier
to all social or commercial lnteicourse between the
two great sections of our country, having at length
happily cleared away all obstacles to a removal of
those relations which formerly bound us together in tt
fraternal union, I take the earliest*opportunity afford
ed me by thia auspicious event, to greet my Sontbem
friends, and to solicit from them a renewals that ex.
tensive business connection wbicb for a quarter of a
century has been uninterrupted save by the'great pub
lic calamity to which I have adverted. 9
It is scarcely necessary, on the threshold of a busi
ness Te-union, I should repeat the warning so often
given to my friends,—to beware of all those spurious
and deleterious compounds which, under the specious
and false titles of Imported Wines, Brandios, Holland
Gin, Liquors, Ac., have been equally destructive to
the health of our citizens and prejudicial to the iifterest
of the legitimate Importer.
Many years of my past life have been expended in
an open and candid attempt to expose these wholesale
frauds; no time nor expffse has been spared to ac
complish this salutary purpose, and to place before
my frieuds and the public generally; at the lowest
possible market price, and in such quantities as might
suit their convenience, a truly genuine imported arti
Twenty-five years’ business transactions with the
largest and most respectable exporting houses in
France and Great Britain afforded me unsurpass
ed facilities for supplying our home market with
Wines, Liquors, and Liquers of the best and most ap
proved brauds iu Europe, iu addition to my owu dis
tillery in Holland for the manufacture of the “Schie
The latter, so long tested and approved by the med
ical Faculties of the United States, West Indies and
South America as an invaluable Therapeutic, a whole
some, pleasant, and perfectly safe beverage in all cli
mates and during all seasons, quickly excited the cu
pidity of the home venders of a
spurious article uuiier the same name.
I trust that I have, after much toil and expense, sur
rounded my importations with safeguards and di
rections which with ordinary circumspection will In
sure their delivery, as I receive them from Europe, to
all my customers.
I would, however, recommend in all cases where it
is possible, that orders beaent direct to my Depot, 22
Beaver street, New York, or that purchases be made
of my accredited agents.
In addition to a large stock of Wines, Brandies, Ac.,
in wood, I have a considerably supply of old tried for
eign wines, embracing vintages of many past years,
bottled up before the commencement of the war,
which I can especially recommend to all connoisseurs
of these rare luxuries.
In conclusion, I would specially coll the early atten
tion of my Southern customers to the advantage to be
derived by transmitting their orders without loss of
time, or calling personally at the Depot, In order to
insure the fulfillment of their favors from the present
laige and well selected assortment.

General Order, )
No. 104. /
The following regulations concerning Military
Courts are re-published from the General Orders of
the War Department, and of this Department, with
additions and modifications. All parts of Department
Orders inconsistent herewith are revoked.
I. “Where a post or district commaud is composed
of mixed troops, equivalent to a brigade, the Com
manding Officer of the Department or Army will desig
nate it in orders us ‘a separate brigade,’ and a copy
of such order will accompany the proceedings of auy
General Court Martial convened by such brigade com
mander. Without such authority, commanders ol
posts and districts haviug no brigade organization
will not convene General Courts Martial,” (General
Orders No! 251, A. G. 0., Series 1864.}
11. No one in the Department save the Command
ing General, can appoint General Courts Martial or
Mi'itary Commissions, except the Commander of a Di
vision or a separate Brigade, and the order appoint
ing the court must be dated “Headquarters Division, ’’
or “Headquarters, Separate Brigade,’’as the case may
111. “All communications pertaining to questions
of militury justice, or the proceedings of military
courts and commissions throughout the Armies of the
United States, must be addressed to the Judge Advo
cate General; and commanding officers are enjoined
to forward promptly to the Bureau of Military Justice
all proceedings of Courts Martial, Military Commis
sions, and Courts of Inquiry, together with the orders
promulgating decision thereon. Jtrdge Advocates will
be held responsible for the prompt execution of this
paragraph, and they ure required to forward to the
Judge Advocate Oeperal, at the end of each mouth, a
list of all cuses trid and to be tried within their juris
diction,” (Gen. Orders No. 2Tb, A. G. 0., Series 1864.}
IV. To carry out the foregoing paragraph, all: offi
cers within the Department authorized to appoint
Courts Martial, Military Commissions or Courts of In
quiry, will on the 27th of each month, send to the
Advqgptc qji the Department, two reports. In
the first report they will state the name and rank of
all persons tried during the month before Courts or
Commissions appointed by them, with the nature of
the charges, and also whether the proceedings in each
case have been (1} approved, (2} published, and (3}
forwarded by them, and if not, the reason why. Iu
the second report, they will state the names and rank
of all persons against whom charges have been pre
ferred, but who remain uutried at the date ot the re
port, with the nature of the charges and also whether
each case has been sent to a Court or Commission for
trial, and if not, the reason why, (Circular No. 14, D.
S., Series 1864.}
V. “Whenever fines are imposed by sentence of
General Court Martial, or Military Commission, upon
officers or citizens, the Judge Advocate of the Court or
Commission will make a special report of the fact to
the Adjutant General, giving a copy of the sentence in
the case. The officer who confirms a sentence impo
slnga fine will transmit to the Adjutant General a
special report ihereof, together with a copy of the or
der promulgating the proceedings,” (Gen. Orders No.
268, Par. I. A, G. 0., Series 1864.]
VI. The fines will be paid to the Chief Officer of the
Quartermaster's Department at the place where the
prisoner may be, and no other person is authorized to
receive them. Such fines must not be applied to any
purpose, but the officer receiving them will forthwith
remit the amounts to the Adjutant General of the
Army, at Washington, with the names of prisoners
who puid them, and the numbers>f the order promul
gating the proceedings, (Gen. Onlers No. 268, Par 11,
A, G. 0., Series 1864.)
miVII. To avoid delay arising from the absence of
Brigadier General L. Thomas, checks forwarded. on
account of fines under the above paragraph, will be
made payable to ’-the Adjutant General U. S. Army,
or order,” without inserting the name. (See Circular
A. G. 0., dated Nov. 19,1664 j
- VIII. "In all cases where fines are Imposed by sen
tence of General Court Martial or Military Commis,
along, a provision should be added to the sentence
that the prisoner shall be confined until the fine is
paid. A limit may be fixed to the period of such con
finement." (Gen, Orders No. 01, A. G. O. Par, L c. s.]
IX. "In case the provision has been omitted from
the sentence, that a prisoner shall be confined until
the fine is paid, a special report will be made to the
Adjutant General ofhis failure to make payment, and
be will not be released without orders from the War
Department, except on payment ol the fine. ” (Gen.
OrGers No. 61, A. G. O, Par. 11, c. s.)
X. “Stoppages of pay against officers or enlisted
men are not ‘fines" in the sense of this *Order,” (Gen.
Orders No. 61, Par. 111, A. G. 0.. c. s )
XI. In a case requiring the confirmation of the Gen
eral Commanding the Department, the officer order
iug the court, or nis successor,'will not merely forward
the record, but will formally act upon the case, and
express his approval or disapproval upon tne record.—
(See Digest of opinion of Judge Advocate General, p.
XII. All records of Military Courts will be transmit
ted to the Judge Advocate General, through these
Headquarters, and in no case will be sent to Washing
XIII. When several oases are published in the same
General Order, the record in each separate case will
be accompanied by a copy of that order, or so much
thereof as relates to the particular case: and when
the court is ordered from the Headquarters of a Sep
arate Brigade, each case will be accompanied by an
official copy of that Paragraph of General Orders
which organizes the Separate Brigade.
XIV. Officers empowered to appoint courts are ear
nestly enjoined to bring all accused persons to a
speedy trial, and to publish and execute promptly, the
sentences of the courts. A delay of justice Is often as
detrimental to the public service as its total denial.

RY JOHN «. SAXE,
When, deeply in love with Miss Emily Pryae,
I vowed, if the maiden would only be mine,

She blushed her consent, tho' the stuttering lass
Said never a word, except, “You’re an ass—
An ass—an ass-idoous teaser!’’
But when we were mirried, I found to my ruth.
The stammering Mdy bad spoken the truth.
For often, iu obvious dudgeon,
She'd say—if I ventured to give her a jog

And hinted we ought to be wiser,

And fretfully cried, “iou’reajew —you’re a Jew

Again when it happened that, wishing to shirk
Some rather unpleasant and arduous work •
I begged her to go to a neighbor,
She wanted to know why I made such a fuss.
And saucily said, “You’re a cus—cus—cus—

Out of temper at last with the Insolent dame.
And feeling that Madam was greatly to blame.

Fourth ot July In Macon In 1843.
The editor of the Macon Journal & Mes
senger, in an article on the Fourth of July,
indulges in the following interesting remin
The Fourth of July was first celebrated in
Macon in 1823. The iflbidents of the occa
sion were principally .these; The first was,
that there being but one cannon to “speak
for the Fourth of July,” and there being two
sides to the Ocmulgee river, and two parties
equally patriotic on either side, a border war
was inaugurated. “ West side" possessed
the cannon. “East side” organized a bellig
erent operation to obtain it at a late hour of
the night of the third. “West side” was in
formed of it, and was fully armed and equip
ped, and the cannon loaded to meet the
emergency. “East side ” crossed the river
and approached cautiously. Discovering
the “opposition” too formidable, they moved
to a noted subruban locality known as “Ti
gertown,” principally under the command
of Captain Spencer Riley, for recruits. The
Captain did not relish an association with
“East side,” and declined the honor of mus
tering “his Tigers" into this service. The
leader and his party then retired across the
river looking (as was said by Bob Perryman,)
“as mean as a suck-egg-jdog,” and were mus
tered out ot service by his administering on
them no moderate amount of cursing for their
cowardice. As they had no cannon to speak
for them, it was understood that each eat his
“collards and bacon,” and drank his whisky
by himself, and Bill Halstead, and Old Har
dy Newaewi got drunker than usual, so as he
said, he could not stand up by “holding on
to the willows.”
As to the “ festivities proper’’ of the day,
a procession was formed on the Court House
square, by Capt. Robert 3. Patton, which
moved to Fort Hawkins, and in a block
house now there standing, Charles J. Mc-
Donald, Esq. (since Governor McDonald),
delivered an oration, which was much com
plimented at the time as being “ able and
eloquent,” with “no cold spots in it.”
The processmn then moved back to the
Court House square, and the writer had the
distinguished honor of being standard bearer,
carrying a flag that had been severely wound
ed in the battle of Chippewa.
A table was spread under a brush arbor
on the square, where they all “sat down,”
Dr. Thompson Bird officiating as President
and Robert Coleman as Vice President.—
The records of the day announce the table
as “loaded with viands,” which, as the
writer recollects, consisted mainly or entirely
of barbecued pig, mutton, com bread, cu
cumbers and boiled “roasting ears.” Such
were the “ viands” of those good old days,
when the pure fire of patriotism burned in
every bosom, and the surface of the moral
and political world were calm as a summer
Another incident of that day, was a juve
nile celebration, in which a large number of
youths participated. An oration, very credi
table to the speaker, was delivered (by our
then apprentice, some thirteen years of age,)
now the Rev. Richard T. Marks, well known
in the ministerial profession, and also as one
of the first editors and proprietors of the Co
lumbus Enquirer, and as a member of the
Legislature. We have had occasion to be
proud of “our boy.”
These were before the days when fanati
cism and abolitionism reared their Gorgon
heads—to lie met with the Hydra of nullifidh
tion, fire-eaters, secession and disunion—
when no man had said, or even ventuied the
sacrilegious thought, that has been since pro
mulgated in an adjoining State—“dissolver
the accursed Union.” We watched the rise
and progress of discord both South and North,
with anxiety and trembling, till it culmina
ted into the fearful struggle—-where cherish
ed hopes have gone down in “clouds and
storms behind the darkened west.” And left
us like the lordly lion and tiger, exhausted
from the battle, and brooding over scars and
wounds, that all-effacing time can scarcely
To speak of ourselves, we will only say,
this “was not our work," but of blinded
councils and “demagogues accursed," who
have cast away such a heritage as God never
gave before —with only the exception of the
—Rather keen and suggestive was s re
partee made the other evening by a little fel
low in a Pittsfield, Mass., barber shop. A
gentleman of standing, and an owner of one
of the factories, came in, and, impatient at
being delayed while two boys had their hair
cut, remarked that “Little boys ought to get
their hair cut in the daytime, and go to bed
in the evening.” “Yes,” replied one of the
juveniles; “but little boys who have to get
up in the morning at five o’clock and work
in the mill till seven at night, must get their
haircut when they can.”,
