By far (ho greater portion of Georgia’s indebt
edness is caused by tho endorsement of railroads.
The business of endorsing railroads began iu
Millodgoville, with tho endorsement of tho Ma

were tho principal causes of this actiou.
It is a pity that the champions of Milledge-
ville aud Atlauta have introduced so much irrel
evant stuff iuto the discussion ou tho capital.
There is so much trash afloat iu tho papers that
it is difficult for any reader who wants informa

The Republicans claim that the Democratic

in order to 6how their dissatisfaction with Mr.

The Labor Reformers of Massachusetts have

BOGUS PIANO-FORTES AND ORGANS.
The Columbus Times argues from tbo num
ber of able lawyers who applied for the Judge
ship of the Macon circuit, that the reduction ot
the salary will not deprive the State of the ser
vices of her best men. Those who applied knew
that the new constitution would be adopted and
their pay reduced to $2,000 a year, aud yet they
were willing to serve.
A temperance paper published at Richmond,
Virginia, denounces the bell punch as an en
couragement to crime, and suggests that the
Legislature pass a law to the effect that every
grave,the work of intemperance,from tho date of
the bell punch, be decorated with the following
inscription: "Rung to sleep by the Moffett bell
punch. Gave his life for the State debt.*
Col. W. L. Gbioe, of Perry, has been ap
pointed by the governor, Judge of the Macon
circuit, in place of Hon. Barnard Hill deceased.
Col. Grice is as able lawyer, and one of the truest
sons Georgia has. He served in tho army as
lieutenant-colonel of the Forty-fifth Georgia
regiment, with Hon. T. J. Simmons as colonel,
whom he now ranks, and who was also an appli
cant for the Judgeship.
The purebuso of a piauo or orgau is a matter
of some moment with most of our readers,
whether wo consider tho amount ot money in
volved, or tho amount of pleasure tho instru
ments are expected to give,or the length of time
which they should last. We feel that we are
doing our readers a favor therefore, iu calling
their attention to a state of facts of which mauy
ot them aro ignoraut.
Certain persons iu New York and other large
cities, who have no manufactory, buy the cheap
aud worthless pianos aud organs made by per
sons who are without capital and responsibility,
buve their own names stenciled on the front ol
tho instruments and sell them as their own
make, falsely calliug themselves manufacturers.
Such are Horace Wuters, Dauiel F. Beatty, the
"Meudelssohu Piauo Company” and others.
Others, equally without reputation, label their
instruments with a name closely resembling that
of som celebrated maker, thus decieviug pur
chasers who do not examine very closely. Thus
Steiumelz A Sous, Stanley A Sons, and Stauuay
A Co., do service for Stein way A Sous; Beckei
Bros., Bekr Bros., Decker A Bros., for Decker
Bros.; Webber, Weber A Co., for Albert Weber;
Krabe, Keuabe, and Knabe A Co., for William
Kuabe A Co., Strik A Co., and Geo. Stecke, for
Geo. Steck A Co., and so ou to the end of the
alphabet. These fraudulent instruments arc
palmed off on the unsophisticated and nre ex
hibited by the owners no doubt ns marvels of
mechauical skill aud ingenuity.
Whenever you see a $G50 piano ndver ised for
$175, or a $300 oigan offered lor $120, you may
be suru there is a swindle at the bottom. Have
nothing to do with it.
The only safe plau, as we have said before, is
to buy from a reputable dealer near homo-a
mau whom you can rely on and who knoirs the
qualities of tho instruments he recommeuds.
Then, if everything does not turn out as repre
sented, you can have recourse ou the seller. On
the other hand, if you buy from Beatty or Wa
ters, or any other similar sensational advertiser,
aud your instrument does not prove as repre
sented, you can have no redress. But they
guarantee thiir instruments, some ouo will say.
Well, what is the guaranty of an irresponsible
party worth ? Who can hold them to their guar
Messrs. Luddeu A Bates, of Savannah, have
begun a warfare ou these bogus dealers which
we hope will be kept up till their worthless in
struments are driven from tho markets of the
THE PRESIDENT’S VISIT TO GEORGIA.
When Mr. Hayes was nominated, the Georgia
press recognized him as a gentleman of un
questioned purity of character. It was not so
far blinded by party feeling, os to moke war
upon tho man. In this course thore was strik
ing contrast between the Southern Democrats
and Northern Republicans who abused Mr. lil-
den like a pickpocket. When the question w;
still an open one as to who was President, the
South said that it was prepared to recognize aud
respect whoever was declared elected by proper
authorily. Mr. Hayes was so declared. The
whole country felt the shock when,
"You and I and all of ns fell down,
And bloody treason flourished over us;"
but, the bargain had been made and honor de
manded that it ehonld bo regarded. No man
has yet charged President Hayes with having
anything to do with that iraud—that reason to
law. The utmost that he did was to slaud
quietly by. He was not moie quiet than Hr.
Tildeu. He had no right to judge for himself
as to whether he was elected or no. It was not
bis provinoe. He was sacredly bound to sub
mit. If Mr. Tilden had been declared elected—
submission was not more his duty than when
be was deolared so.
His course since he hsB been President has
been thoroughly consistent. He did not remove
the troops because of friendship for the South,
but because he did not have a right to keep
them here; he did not recognize Nichols and
Hampton beoanso he believed them elected;
with that he had nothing to do, but Bimply re
fused to aid any other men in taking the plaoes
they claimed. He has simply tried to do right.
Mr. Hayes has done more than that, he has
earnestly striven by private kindness, to heal up
old wonnds. He has succeeded. He has done
more to make law the role ot the land than all
bayonets have done or could do.
We are glad the South has had an opporlu-
nity to show the President of the United States,
that while all of Gen.Grant's audacious tyranny,
backed by a Congress led by Thad. Stevens and
Ben Butler, oould not frighten her into truck
ling, and while she defied them in their rnMit,
that os soon as law was regarded and honor
recognized thot she had no miserable petty
spite against men who had differed with .or,
fought her, overthrown her. The Southern
army was an army of soldiers, not banditti. The
Southern people know tho difference between
an honest contest, at the polls, and a captious,
unreasonable opposition after an eleetiou. Ibe
Sonth has not been willing to save her faoe from
jnneh smiting by any oonrse of dishonor; Bhe is
v.nt now willing to bite off her nose to spite her

A teleoram from Aiessila, New Mexico,
dated 19th, says: "An armed mob of four hun
dred Mexicans, one hundred trom the Mexican
side of the river, have pos ess^ion of the county
of El Puso,iu Texas,filty miles below this place.
The mob threatens to massacre ail Americans.
They have arrested aud imprisoned tbo county
officers. Several prominent citizens have fled
from tho county. A small detachment of the
Uuited States cavaliy started tor the scene of
trouble to-day, to protect the United States cus
tom house and government property. The Mex
icans claim El Paso county belongs to Mexico.”
Senator McDonald, of Indiana, explaius sat
isfactorily his alleged "pairing off” with Senator
Morton. It was not as represented, but Mc
Donald said to him "if he regaiued his strength
so as to be able to go to Washington, and found
the attendance on the daily sessions of the
senate too fatiguing, he could rest himself by
pairing off with me.”
A dispatch from the mayor of Port Royal,
dated 9th, says: We are iu a deplorable condi

for the sick. There are not enough convales
