AN EARNEST APPEAL.
tfo would remind those who are indebt
ed to the Southern Watchman for subscrip
tions, Jte., that, it costa money to carry on
our business, and we are compelled to
have some to meet our running expenses
We are in earnest about this matter, and
trust that those indebted will come for
ward at once and pay at least a portion of
what they owe.
This terrible scourge has made its ap
pearance at Fernandiua, Florida, and the
Mayor has telegraphed to Savannah for
medical aid and nurses, which have been
promptly sent forward by that city.
Owiug to the advancement of the season,
and the precautions taken to prevent its
spread, it is thought that it will be con
fined to that locality, and we sincerely |
trust it will shortly disappear altogether.

An Important Legal Derision.
The Supreme Court of the United States
recently rendered a decision in the case
of J. K. Place & Co., of New York, which
will prevent dishonest business men from
tiling voluntary petitions in bankruptcy.
Place had taken money from bis business,
invested it in ''<*al estate, erected a prince
ly house on Fn.n Avenue, furnished it in
line style, settled the same to his wife,
aud then went into bankruptcy. His
creditors questioned the right ol Place
thus to use their money lor Ins own per
sonal purposes, and insisted that the pro
perty should be sold and the proceeds
reckoned with the other assets. Mrs.
Piace, through her attorneys, objected,
and the case was carried through the lo
cal Court, the Circuit Court,'and up to the
Uuited States Supreme Court, where it
was lluully decided, that Court holding,
that inasmuch as the property was put
chased with money taken from the busi

THK UNIVERSITY OK GEORGIA AND ITS
The Southern Mutual Eire Insurance Company.
The Southern Mutual Insurance Company
of Atheus, Georgia, has had a career ol
sudoess rarely, If ever, etioalled in this
country or elsewhere. Chartered iu 1847,
on the mutual plan, with the purpose ot
effecting insurance combining sound in
demnity with the least possible cost to the
policy holder, it has, under wise manage
ment, without capital stock to further its
success iu the beginning or share its profits
afterwards, distributed among its policy
holders and paid off dividends aggregating
over 81,000,000, besides meeting its cur
rent expenses aud losses, and has now ac
cumulated assets iu excess of 8750,000, at
their cash market value, so iuvested that,
ii neccessary, they could be converted into
cash within thirty days.
Within the past 11 years, siuee May
1860 the coinpauy has more than trebled
its iissets, paid iu dividends to its policy
holders $767,828 64 (nearly all in Georgia)
aud met its losses amounting to nearly
8650,000 00 with such fairness and prompt
ness as even to draw from the legislature
of Georgia, iu their late discussions of in
surance matters the highest commendati
ons. Its dividends to policy holders the
past three years has bceu fifty per ccnf. of
the premiums paid on annual policies, while
its assets have increased, yearly $200,000,-
oo within the same time. All thishas been
accomplished out of business coutiued to
Georgia. .Since 1870 tho company has had
no agency outside the Stalo. The highest
success ever won by a fire Iusurauco Com
pany within our knowledge is conveyed by

Notwithstanding the immense amount of
unfrieudly criticism to which the Universi
ty has been subjected during the last three
years, its indorsement by properly consti
tuted authorities are stronger to-day than
they have ever been. These indorsements
are three, viz:
1. The Board of Visitors. This Board
consisted of ten gentlemen selected by the
Governor from various parts of the State.
Eight of them were practical teachers, men
of ability and experience; one was a law
yer and one an editor. They remained in
Athens eight days during Term time. They
saw the institution iu actual operation, and
made a most thorough and seaicbing in
vestigation of its history for the past year,
and of its present condition. The institu
tion was probably never before subjected
to so rigid a scrutiny. Tho report of this
thoroughly informed and impartial Board
is in the bigest degree complimentary.
The most ardent friends of the present ad
ministration must be hard to please if they
are not satisfied with the report ot this
2- The Board of Trustees. This body con
sists ot thirty-two of the wisest, ablest and
best men in the State. It would be impos
sible to duplicate this body in Georgia.
The samo number of men, equally known,
equally honored, and equally confided iu,
cannot be found within our borders. This
Board was in session eight days, and the
result of their deliberations is, that the
best thing they can do for the institution
is to ht it alone ; aud thus they indorsed
thiugsas they are. Tree, they dropped one
Professor whose term of office had expired
and they appointed a committee to report
at the next meeting on some changes iu
the course of study but this last was done
at the request of tho Chaucellor.
3. TDe convention. this body tresfl Iffiiu
the people, convened two days after the
Board of Visitors to the University had
completed their labors, and was in session
during tho whole time that the Board of
Trustees were together. The Convention
discussed the University questiou. The
members had every opportunity to be
thoroughly informed as to its coudition aud
status. 8ix of the Trustees were members
of the Convention, to-wit: Jenkins, Law-
ton, Hammond, Toombs, Seward and Screv-
eu. Tho action of the Convention is more
lavorable to tho University than any that
has been taken by any Legislative body in
the State for many years.
With the three indorsements above nam
ed, we think that the friends of the Uni
versity and of the present administration
may well be satisfied. We know of our
own knowledge that the morale of the stu
dents has been steadily improving for sev
eral years, and that the discipline, while
extremely mild is yet very ‘efficient and
thorough. After all that has been said,
oar indorsement is ot little avail, still, as
iwe like to to iu good company, we add

in this city. It is a well-merited tribute

eighteen or twenty issues of dividend

Bight of in that period, when the funds on

that the means ot the Company have be

Directors, regarding themselves as tho
agents of all parties in interest, have had
circulars' prepared and sent out to the
owuers of tho unpaid first ten issues of
this dividend Scrip, reminding them of
their rights, and furnishing forms, which,
wheu property filled, euuble each person
entitled to receive the amount duo them.
These unpaid Scrip amount to more than
fitly thousand dollars, aud will be that
much gained by the owners, who have
lost all knowledge ol such interest, and to
many hundreds of whom in their altered
circumstances it will be a most welcome
boon. This is the crowing compliment, if
any such were needed, to the faithful aud

many candidates for the Marshalship of
Georgia, we have heretofore said but little
about tho merits or demerits of any o
them ; but now that tho time approaches
when we think a successor to Mr Smytho
will bo appointed, wo do not hositate to
say, intermingling with a great many peo
ple of tho 9th District, that our friend, Col.
P. F. Lawsbe, of the Gainesville Southron,
is the decided choice of the best people oi
all classes for the position.
There is no man in upper Georgia who
has more energy, activity and go-ahead in
him than he; aud wo do not know any
one of the many applicants who is better
qualified, in any particular, to fill the office,
lu addition, tho Col. is the only applicant
from the 9th District, where most of the
duties of the Marshal are performed—un
less it is true that Gen. Longstreet is ap
plying, aud ji he is, the people of Georgia
would not approve of his appointment at
this time. Therefore, we hope to see out
friend Lawshe wiu the prize.

of Atlanta, who has held many positions

the most able financiers in the State, died
at his residence in Atlanta on Monday of

Soap From Cotton Seed
The Memphis Avalanche gives an account
of an extensive factory in that city, for the
purpose of extracting the oil from cotton
seed, and manufacturing the samo into
soap. This soap is highly recommeuded
for all purposes, and is free from the in
jurious ingredients of diseased animal fat
used in making the ordinary soaps by
Northern Manufacturers, as well as the
various other adulterations.
This is a, new use for cotton seed, and
will it properly oucouraged, add greatly to
the value «1 our great staple. The hulls
ot the seed are sold for fertilizing purposes.
The Avalanche says of the soap:
“ Its great quality of purity cannot be
too highly spokeu of. The soap is made
of nothing else than the purest oil. as pure
as pure can be, aud is free from all pos
sible iiijury* The soap is of pretty hues,
has a pleasant odor and its cWOnsing
powers cannot be exceeded by any soap
that is made.

THE CAPITAL QUESTION.
Messrs. Editors: While I must respect
the reason published in your last issue why
the Watchman does not take positive po
sition as to the Capital Question which is
now agitating tiie public mind in Geor
gia, I am satisfied that with your accus
tomed liberally and fairness you will al
low citizeus to discuss tiie natter in your
columns. My opinion is that tho best in
terest of the tax payers of Georgia demand
that Miiltdgevillo shall again be the Capital.
But other men may think otherwise. Let
the questiou he • discussed fairly on its
merits, aud let no attempt be made by the
advocates of either side to influence the
votes of the people by false representa
tions aud delusive arguments. The effort
is being made by some of the friends of
Atlanta to ilifluse the belief that in case
that city shall bo chosen as the capital,
her citizeus will pay all tho expense of
building a uew State House aud other re
quisite public buildings, and that the peo
ple at large will not have to pay one dol
lar. This statement is untrue. Atlanta
has not promised to do anything of tho
kind. She is not under any obligations,
express or implied, to contribute a single
brick to tho building of the now capitol.
She did offer, in a letter written by
some of her corporation to the Constitu
tional Convention, that if Atlauta were made
the capital ly the Convention she would
convey to the State the lot ou which her
city hall now stands, and would build a
State House “ as good as that at Milledge-
ville.” But since tho Convention did not
establish tho capital in Atlanta by the Con
stitution, but left the matter to the deci
sion of the people, of course the otter of
the Mayor, and a few of the City Council,
falls to the ground, since the Convention
refused to give the consideration on which
it was based. Then again, the otter, if
such it may be called, could never bo car
ried out. The Mayor aud Council of At
lanta have no authority to make presents
of the city property for any purpose, to the
State or to any one else; and the charter
of Atlanta expressly forbids her adding to
her bonded debt. The truth is, Atlanta
could not if she would and would not if
she could, build a new State House “as
good as that at Milledgevjllo,” or any new
State House at all,'and the offer to do so
was nothing but a trick to deceive tbe
Conyentfpn. The trick having failed, the
attempt is flow made to make the voters
of Georgia believe that the offer still exists,
and that if they will select Atlanta she will
bear all the expense.
Now, Messrs. Editors, I want our people
to vote on this question with their eyes
wide open and with a full knowledge of
the facts. They should not be deceived
I want them therefore tp know, that
First. The offer of Mayor Angier and
some of the City Council to donate the city
hall lot, and build a capitol “as good as
that at Milledgeville,” was made on the dis
tinct condition that Atlanta shotild be de
clared the seat of government by the new
Constitution, and as the Convention did not
accept the. offer, it no longer exists.
Second. Atlanta hab no authority to carry
out any such promise. Her charter for-
Third. The two foregoing statements
being undeniably true, the effort to make
the people believe the contrary is an un
worthy subterfuge to obtain their votes un
der false pretenses.
I may, with your permission, discuss
this question on other grounds next week.
Hy present otjeot is to pveyent any voter
• li .1 '• *
that that city will build tho capitol at her
expense. She is under no promise to do
so, aud if she were, the law would uot al
low her to keep it. Veritas.
The Ohio and Pcuusjlvauia Campaigns.
The Washington correspondent ot the
Baltimore Sun says: “ Before aud up to
the time of the great railroad strikes no
shrewd politicians of either party had tho
least doubt that Ohio and Pennsylvania
would both go Democratic this fall. But
in consequence of the convulsion into which
the whole country was plunged in July
last new elements have been brought into
the politics ot those as well as of other
States. Therefore it is recognized now
that the result in either is problematical,
although, at this time, the chances seem
to be in favor of the Republicans in both.
In Ohio particularly tho Republicans ap
pear to be conscious of this, and have been
making steady efforts to recover from the
mistakes made in their platform and the
first speech of Judge West, their uominte
for Govenor. They are conducting their
canvass upon a higher plaue than that ot
the Democrats. The President is taking
intense interest in the progress ot the
campaign, aud duriug his stay in Ohio his
aim will bo to go to the very verge of de
corum in throwing his wholo influence in
behalf of the Republican candidates. The
action of the President has already subjec
ted him to some criticism, but tliis will not
deter him, as it is a matter of almost vim
importance to him that he be sustained it
hisown State. What helps the Republicans
in Ohio very materially, is the refusal of an
influential and highly respectable minority
ot tho Democratic party of that State ti
follow the wild and senseless liiiHuics ol
the inflationists ol the Cincinnati
Estate of Mary M. Adams.
