Slates are entitled to Bounty Land; and those unfortunates, so afflicted, will cause their declarations and proofs to W immediately made out' and forward ed-, and *» the cider” will assuredly “come!” The noble-hearted and be nevolent Miss Dix, at whose urgent apd long continued solicitations, Congress passed the Bill for the relief of the “ In digent Insane,” which the Hero of Graytown vetoed, will be rejoiced to hear of the decision made by the aforesaid Land Commissioner. The ‘ Insane’ are now entitled to Government land, espe cially if their insanity has been super induced by fainting, fits, or spasms 1— The establishment of this precedent will cover a multitude of the Brigadier's sins, among them his aforesaid veto ! “ It is an ill wind that blows good to no body !” S. 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 the people of Griffin.. We see a storm brewing here, and wish to put every one on his guard so that it may be averted iffyfjrtjfrggnry wrr yjfttn 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.

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 member. 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 citizen. 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. W. L. MARLER, J. G. McLESTER, V Com. N. H.

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 J 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 (See Dr. Gunn’s great works.) ty Purchasers will be careful to * ask for Dr. M'Lane’s Celebrated a Liver Pills, and take none else. Thereare other Pills, pur porting to bo Liver Pills, now before tho public. Dr. M’Lane’s Liver Pills, also bis Celebrated Vermifuge, can now be had at all respectable Drug Stores iu the Uuited States and Canada. Sold by Smith A Billups, C. W. & H: R.

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 healthy and luxuriaut growth, and comple tely cleansed the skin from all scurf and dandruff.

SUCCESSFULLY TREATED BY IN- HALATION OF MEDICATED VA PORS. B Y JOHNSON STEWART ROSE, M. D Fellow of the Royal College of Physici ans, and for years Senior Physician - in the London Royal Infirmary ter diseases of the Lungs. In the treatment of Consumption by In halation, I have obtained results which war rant me in asserting that it is now as cura ble ns di-eascs of the Stomach and Liver. 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 tionize thu opinions of the medical world, and establishe the entir curability cf Con sumption. Applicants will please state if they hare ever bled from the Lungs, if they have lost flesh, have a cough, night sweats and fever turns—what and how much they expectorate, what the condition of tlu-ir stomach und bowels. The necessary Medicines, nppara tus, Ac., will bo forwarded to any part. TERMS—Five dollars, Consultation fee Balance of fee payable only when the pati ents report themselves convalescent. - RECOMMENDATION BY PHYSICIANS. Wc, the undersigned practitioners in me- aiuize, clicCT^tiJIjr and heartily recommend Dr. Ros63 meibod of irking diseases of the Lungs and Throat, as the best and e f ce lual ever introduced into medical practice. Our convictions are based upon having several 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. Dr. Rose deserves well of the profession for hie unwearied labors in bringing the In haling Method to Such a degree of perfec tion. tt.vi.ru sTGrffc. »f, fl. JONAS A- M OTT, M. I>.

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 and Tar. Such are the good reports wo hear of this Medicine from all parts of the South.

Here every woman can discover,by conn- paring her own symptoms with those de scribed, the nature, character, causes of, aud: the proper remedies for. her complaints. The wife about becoming a mother has. often need of instuction and advics-of.thc utmost importance to her. future health, it: respect to which her sensitiveness forbids consulting a medical gentleman, will fiud* such instruction aud advice, and also explain, many symptoms wbioh otherwise would oc casion anxiety or alarm, as all the peculiari ties incident to her situation are described. How manjr are suffering from obstructions or irregularities pecul iar to th e female ay stem, which undermine the health, tho effects of v which they are ignorant, and for which thein- delicacy forbids seeking medical advice tr— Many suffer from- prolapsus uteri ( falling'oh*, the womb), or from fiuor alius (weakness, debility, &s.)
