THE DAILY TIMES.
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25,
Death of Dred Scott.
This distinguished colored individual departed
this life ai St Louis, Mo, on the 17th inst. For
the last lour years he has enjoyed a notoriety
unequafed, perhaps by any member of his race-
His denund of, and effort to obiairi his freedom,
formed the subject of that great decision by the
Supreme Court of the United States, uhich declar
ed the political equality of the South, and the
North, and their equal right to enjoy with their
peculiar p.operty, the territories of the Union re
pudiating the doctrine of “squatter sovereigns
or the power of a territorial legislature to afieet
the slaveholder in his right of property or in the
securiiy of its enjoyment. 1* or this judicial guar
antee, although fanaticism is Dot likely to regard
it, we are indebted to the case ol Dred £>cott. W e
are, therefore, glad that he has lived.
The yellow fever has been in progress in New
Orleans for twelve weeks. During that time the
report of the Sexton shows that 4,583 deaths oc
curred, of this number 2,660 .resulted from yellow
fever. From the first week of the lever to the pres
ent, it has increased. For the week ending Sept.
19th, there were 474 deaths, the largest number re
corded during the summer, Tn Mobile the disease
has averaged at least three deaths a day since the
commencement of the fever. In Charleston there
were 103 deaths we~-k bafore last of the disease,
and 128 last week. Savannah ha 9 only suffered
f rom the epidemic for a week or ten days. Last
week, there were forty deaths in Savannah, twen
ty of which died of yellow fever. During tho
present week the disease has abated, if it has net
disappeared altogether. Galveston has been also
a victim to this terrible epidemic.
Interments for the Week.
The official report, says the Savannah News, of
the Board of Health of the interments for the
weekending on Tuesday evening, ihe 21st insL,
will he found in another column. It shows an
increase of fivo over the report of last week, in
cluding 20 deaths by yellow fever. We have ;
before stated that rho very had weather previous to j
Wednesdy, the 15th inet., had been productive of
much sickness- Most of the deaths recorded in
the present report are of persons who were at
tacked during the previous week For several
days past we have heard of very few new cases of
lever, and if the present favorable weather contin
ues, we shall confidently expect a still greater
abatement of the sickness and mortality.
On Tuesday there were six interment in the two
cemeteries —only one death being from yellow
fever. On yesterday there were five interments in
Laurel Grove Cemetery—three whites and two
black children—and one in the Cathedral Ceme
tery, none of which were from yellow fever.

Our enterprising fellow townsman, Col. N.
Tift, has just concluded a contract with Dr. A. J.
Robinson, of Columbus, for the erection of a first
class Bridge to span Flint River at the foot of
Broad street in this city. Horace King, the cele
brated bridge builder, will superintend the work.
Tho covered lattice portion of the Bridge will be
350 feet long, resting on three hollow wood piers,
to be subsequently filled with masonry, and will
be about 40 feet above high water. The trestle
bridging will be ahout 580 feet long, making a to
tal length of 930 feet. If no unforeseen occurrence
should prevent, the Bridge will be opened for
crossing on the first of December, and will be
completed by the first day of February next. — At’

Diversion of Trade by Quarantine Exac

from a large importing house in this city, in the
West India trade, that they had stopped the ship

and had sent cargoes to New Haven, and were
at present receiving them in New York bvschoou

The counties in this Judicial Circuit are nomi- j

was cut off in the new County of Mitchell.
The democracy would have no one else than
Hon Allred H. Colquitt, ex member of Congress
from this District. Though retired from public
lile—having declined a re-election to Congress
alter a splendid victory—and living in quiet upon
his larm, his services were called into lequisilton by
his old constituents in so flattering a manner that
he could not ignore their wishes. Besides the har
mony restored and reconciliation of conflicting
claims effected in thS Democratic ranks by the use
ol his name, Maj. Colquitt could not be unmind
fnl of the enthudasm of old Baker for his election
to Congress and the unprecedented majority of
six hundred, votes she gave him in that race. All
honor to Baker for her selection! We believe in
the plan of sending our best men to the Legisla
ture to make laws for us.

Our merchants will now have facilities to
purchase cotton at all times. Bainbridge
is the best cotton market in this section of
the country —Albany and Tallahassee not
excepted.— Bainbridge Georgian.
A number of our cotemporaries have re
vived this subject, and are laboring assid
ously to excite public interest in it. It is
astonishing how much wind work is re
quired before any great measure of public
utility can be brought to a practical deter
mination at the South. The press and a
few patriotic menjin our state have, for \ ears,
striven to impress the minds of the people
and their legislators with the importance of
some more extended and useful system of
education, and yet, nothing has been done.
Teachers’ Associations have been formed,
convened a lew times, and died out, with
out accomplishing anything. The State
Legislature has had the matter under con
sideration lor years without coining to any
definite conclusion. Yet there is not a man
or woman of ordinary intelligence in the
country, but recognises the advantages that
would accrue to our section, socially, mor
all and politically, from a more general dis
semination of knowledge. Argument upon
this subject is wasted —none is needed to
convince the people of a self-evident truth,
and the only question that can arise, it seems
to us, is, what plan of education can be
made practicable that will prove most effi
cacious for general good. We have no sug
gestion to make ourself, but have copied an
article upon the suoject from the Columbus
Times , whose editor favors a f?tate Univer
sity as most likely to subserve the educa
tional wants of the times.
What we most deplore, in connection
with this subject, (and indeed with all sub
jects of great public utility,) is the necessity
f >r so rn mb talking and writing in advance
of any action by either the people or their
legislators. It is fair to infer, that what any
other people have done, our people can do.
In other sections of the country there are
facilities for popular education far superior
to any thing at the South, and it is a dis
paraging reflection that we should linger
behind in the high and holy work. There
has already been too much time consumed
in discussing plans, in reiterating argu
ments, in speculating upon effects. Action
is what we need. Perhaps it would be
well for the Governor to invite the opinions
of some of our most eminent teachers and
scholars as to the most feasible plan for ac
complishing a system of general education
throughout the State, those opinions to be
embodied it) a report to the next Legisla
ture, with a request for its immediate con
sideration of the same, preparatory to def
inite action. We throw out the suggestion
for what it is worth. —Griffin Independent

HAIR RESTORA TIVE.
Old and young are now indiscriminately
using Prof. Wood’s flair Restorative; some as a
cosmetic or beauufier of the complexion, some to
pieventtne ri-m ailing, someas a mere dressing
of the inn- ar.d others to make it grow and to
change gray hair to its original color; and there
is no doubt of its answering all tho purposes tor
which it was designed by its illustrious inventor.
We ore utterly averse to incurring editorial re
sponsibility in trifling matters, but as we deem it
no trifling matter to have the hair on a gentle
man’s head (when prematurely tailing off ) actu
ally and permanently restored, so neither down
consider it unworthy the editorial profession to
recommend a Hair Restorative that will effect
this very thing. Wood’s celebrated Hair Resto
rative is the article we have in view, and it the

country are entitled to credence is this preparation
