JcC '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 cle. 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 dam Schnapps.’ 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.

Robert Erwin, Chas. S. Hardee, may3l-eod2m HEADQ'RS DEP’T OF THE SOUTH, Hilton Head, S. C„ June 28, 1806. 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 be. * 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 lou direct. 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.

When, deeply in love with Miss Emily Pryae, I vowed, if the maiden would only be mine, 1 would always endeavor to please her; She blushed her consent, tho' the stuttering lass Said never a word, except, “You’re an ass— An ass—an ass-idoous teaser!’’ n, 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 In the way of reproof—“ You're a dog—you’re a dog A dog— a dog-matic curmudgeon !" * - in. And 01.ee when I said, “We can hardly afford This extravagant style, with our moderate hoard, And hinted we ought to be wiser, She looked, I assure you, exceedingly blue, And fretfully cried, “iou’reajew —you’re a Jew Avery ju-dicious adviser 1" rv. 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— You were always ac-cus-tomed to labor 1" V. Out of temper at last with the Insolent dame. And feeling that Madam was greatly to blame. To scold me instead of caressing, I mimicked her speech—like a churl as I am— And angrily said, “You’re a dam—dam—dam— A dam-age instead of a blessing |" 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 iscences : 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 sea. • 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 heal. 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 -base Judean." —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.”,
