For the Southern Watchman
Clarke counts', July 12, 1855.
Mr. Christy: In these bustling times
of politics, I hope it will not be asking
too much of you, to give me a small
space in your paper. I wish to speak
of an examination and exhibition, I at
tended a few dttys ago, at a school house,
situated about seven miles from Athens,
Mr. G. J. N. Wilson, being principal of
the school. I wish you too, could have
been there—for I know it would have
given you great pleasure to hare wit
nessed the highly creditable manner
the whole examination and exhibition
passed. Tbc entire morning was spent
in examining the school, and I must say,
I never saw scholars better prepared in
my life. Indeed, sir, it would have done
your heart good, could you have seen
little boys speaking, with great prompt
ness, and correctness, words of almost
as many syllables as they were years old
And when Geography and Arithmetic
were taken up, the same preparation was
shown there. I do not know who ought
to have felt proudest, the parents, or
their most worthy teacher, who by these,
showed so clearly his entire capability
for the high calling he has undertaken.
At one o’clock the examination closed
and the summons to dinner was given
There were two tables prepared, one
for the ladies, the other for the gentle
men. I will not attempt a description of
the more substantial table, for you know
too well, the general profusion and
savory dishes of a well gotten-up barbe
cue. The other being somewhat mm
sual for dinners of this kind, I would
like to say a word about. It was liter
ally filled with dainties of all kinds—of
richly trimmed cakes, fruit, jellies, can
dies, &c. Never was a dinner done
more justice by—and yet there was
plenty for all. At two o’clock the com
pany returned to the school room ; where
Mr. Wilson, in a few well-timed re
marks, staled the order of the exercises
for the evening—which were composed
of dialogues and speeches—there were
a good many of oach—some by little
'boys, some by young men; and, last
though fur from least, some by young
ladies and little girls. There were no
failures. All did themselves great
credit, showing the good framing of
their teacher. And well might each
parent’s heart have beat with honest
pride, as they beheld the appropriate
bearing of their children. Suitable
prizes were awarded to the best de-
c!aimers. 1 should like to mention them
by name, as I should also, many others,
who so well sustained their parts, but 1
fear, Mr- Christy, that I have already

This Know Nothings, according to
their plan . of operations, set out with
the design of pursuing their purposes,
silently, quietly, and in good order, and
avoiding all irritation of feeling, by re
fusing atl excited debates; and this
course of conduct on their part, seems
to have given a general license to the
opposition, to heap upon them all man
ner of unbecoming epithets and abusive
language. They have been openly
denounced as “ midnight conspirators,’
as “ cowards who are afraid to avow
their sentiments in public,” as “ the
oath-buund party,” as “ liars and cor
rupters of the public morals,’’ and per
sons holding high positions in society
have said publicly that they would not
believe one of them on his oath. These
and other such epithets and charges
have somewhat exasperated the feelings
of those who have attached themselves
to the American organization. They
believe that as American citizens, they
have the right to pursue whatever course
in politics they choose. Teeir object
and aim is to give no cause of offence
to any one, and they hold that these
who oppose them have no moral or po
litical right to take advantage of their
quiet way of procedure, and use it as a
license to villify and abuse them. And
many of them have resolved that for-the
future they will hold every one person
ally accoutable who sees fit to continue
this licentious mode of party warfare.
They intend to show some respect for
the opinions of others, and will not suf
fer their own opinions and purposes
slandered, abused and purposely mis
represented, without resenting it in
becoming manner.—Griffin Union.

Jefferson Po. July 9th. 1855.
At a called meeting, held this mom
ing, the following preamble and resolu
tions were unanimously adopted:
Painfully and frequently are we re
minded of the uncertainty of life, and
of the universal dominion of death.—
Silently and steadily death deals his fa
tal Wows, and brother after brother fol
lows to the grave. To-day we are vigor
ously engaged in the busy scenes of life
—to-morrow borne by mourning friends
to the still long silence of the tomb.—
In brother Witt were centered the three
great tenets of our order, Faith, Hope,
and Charity—Faith in God, Hope in
immortality and Charity to all mankind.
But alas ! Our brother, is gone l He
sleeps beneath the cold clods of the val
ley whcre]the wrecks of the world are felt
and known no more. The generous
heart, the friend of the poor, the widow
and the fartherless, is no longer.
That manly form, that noble spirit
which once gave joy to the helpless and
the distressed, is gone! Death has
chilled the heart and made a vacuum in
t!.e Lodge, the family, and the circles
of sot iety, Reflections like these are
suggested by the death of our worthy
broil er, Middleton Witt, who departed
this life otvMopday morjling, at half
past six o’clock, the 9th inst. We fed
that in the decease of brother Witt, the
cause of Masonry has lost one of its
warmest friends and brightest orna
ments. Under a deep sense of the loss
sustained by this Lodge and the cause
of Masonry, Beit
Resolved, That in (he decease of
brother Witt, Unity Lodge feels that
she has lost a most valuable and useful
Resolved, That the memory of our
deceased brother is dear to us as his
brethren and friends, and will be cher
ished by us so long as we are able to
appreciate brotherly love or worth lit a
Resolved, That the assurance of our
I eart-felt sympathy be tendered to the
bereaved widow and aged mother of
our deceased brother, and that a copy
of the resolutions be tendered to them
and published in the Southern Watch
man and the Southern Batner.
Resolved, That this Hall be shroud
ed in, and the usual badge of mourn
ing be worn by the members of this
Lodge for thirty days.

A SAD AFFAIR.
W<c l«»rn that on Monday evening
last the -quiet and good order of the
town Jackson, Butts county, was
seriously disturbed, and considerable
perstmal violence ensued. From the
reports received we suppose the circum
stances to be about as follows:
A couple of gentlemen from this
place had ap appointment on that day
to address the people of Butts on poli
tics, and in their speeches they indulged
in a good many harsh epithets and bold
denunciations against the Know Noth *
ings. After the speaking was oyer,
the opponents of the American order
having their passions excited by the elo
quence of the speakers, commenced the
same kind of party warfare in thestreets.
The Know Nothings took their abuse
aqd denudations, until human nature
could slang il no longer, and told them
they had to stop :* «i they would hold
them personally accountable for what
they said. It took but few words to
firing them to blows, and several person
al conflicts in which considerable blood
was spilt, was the con.-equetico.
In connexion with this sad affair, we
foel it to he pur duty as a ■' seminal on
Diseases of the Liter.—When the celebrated
Dr. Rush declared that drunkenness was a
disease, he enunciated n truth which the ex
perience and observation of medical men is
every day confirming. The many apparent
ly insaneexcesses of those who indulge in
the use of spirituous liquors, may bo thus ac
counted for.' The true cause of conduct
wltich is taken for infatuatiou, is very fre
quently a diseased slate*of the Liver. No
rgan in the human system, when deranged,
produces a more frightful cntaloguemf dis
eases. And if, instead of applying remedies
to the manifestations of disease, as is too
often tho case, physicians would prescribo
with a view to the original cause, fewer deaths
would result from diseases induced by a
deranged state of tho Liver. Three-fourths
of the diseases enumerated the bead of Con
sumption, have their seat in a diseased Liter

Among the various nostrums which are daily
given to the public for diseases of the hair,
we have ever been averse to giving eredence
to them. But from ihe numerous respectable
testimonials of Rite virtues of the Hyperion
Fluid, with which wo have been favored a
perusal, we wore inclined to make n trial of
the same, being confidently assured that if it
did good it would do no harm, nndthe result
was I hat it certainly gave to the li&ir a more

In the treatment of Consumption by In

rant me in asserting that it is now as cura

Breathing medicine directly into the
Lungs is certainly the rational mode of at
tacking tho disease, and like many other
great aud beneficent discoveries' It seems
strange why such treatment was uot resCTt
ed to long ago. Where there is life, there is j
surely hope for the most seeming hopeless
cases.as throughout all the stages of this in
sidious disease, the wonderful and beneficent
effects of its treatment are soon apparent. In
oases also of Bronchitis, Asthma. &c., the
inhaling of powders aud vapors has been
eminently successful, aud to those suffering
under any of the above uamtd complaints,
I can guarantee speedy aid certain relief. I
have pleasure in referring to 207 names,
residents of New York, and neighborhood,
who have been restored to vigorous health
About one third of the above number, as-
cording te tire patients own statements, were
considered hopeless cases-
The inhaling Method is soothing safe ami
peedy, and consists iu the admiuistration
of medicines in such a manner they arc con
veyed into the Lungs in the form of vapor, and
produce tbeiraction at thescat of the diseaKC.
Its practical success is destined to revolu

of ourow** patients, confirmed consumptives,
restored to vigorous health after n few
months treatment by Dr, Rose, in tho above
named diseases tbc application of “Medicat
ed Vapors,” inhaled directly into the Lungs,
may be justly considered a great boon to
suffering humanity, rendering Consumption
a perfectly curable disease.

tending to Consumption.
T HIS preparation is getting into use all
over our Country. The numerous let
ters we receive from our various agents,
informing us of cures effected iu their imme
diate neighborhoods, warrant ns In saying
•t is ono of the best, if not the very best
(tough Medicine now before the public. It
almost invariably 7?tieves and not unfre-
quently cures the very worst c22?s. When
all other Cough preparations have failed,
this has relieved the patient, as Druggists,
dealers in Medicines, and Physieians can
testify. Ask the Agent in your uearest
town, what has been his experience of the
effects of this medicine. If he has been
selling it for any length of time ho will tell
you IT IS THE BEST MEIUCIRK EXTANT.
Below we give a few extracts from letters
we have received lately regarding the vir
tues of this medieine.
Dr. S. S. Oslin, of Knoxville, Ga., says:—
“ 1 have been using your ^Liverwort and
Tar vety extensively in my practice for three
years past, and, it is with pleasure I state
iny belief jn its superiority overall other
articles with which 1 am acquainted 1 , for
which it is recommended.”
Messrs. Fitzgerald & Bunn err, writing
from Way nesviHe, N. C. say :—“ The Liver
wort ana Tar is becoming daily more pGpu
larin ibis Country, and we think justly
so. All who have tried it speak in com
mendable terms of it, and say it is very
beneficial iu alleviating the complaints for
which it is recommended.”
Our Agent in Pickens District, S. C. Mr.
S. R. McFall, assures us* “ that he uses it
with great benefit in his own family, and re
commends it to his neighbors.” He gives
an instance of a Negro woman, in his vicini
ty, who had been suffering with disease of
the Lungs for years, attended with severe
cough, who was relieve 1 by the Liverwort
