TUK OARY TIMES.
MONDAY. SEPTEMBER 27
Ti e Legislature of Georgia convenes in five or
fix There are many questions, which will
be brojght before that body of great interest to the
people. It is right that we should speak of them
that they rnay have a in the matter. The
L first question that will require legislative action is
that of granting aid to Railroads The friends of
this policy do not ask a loan ol the State’s money,
but its credit. They say the State is developing
fier resources without any danger ol loss—that the
and flerent roads asking assistance secure the State
in granting its credit —that it is a false economy to
hold down the doors of the Treasury for an enter
prise so worthy the consideration of Georgians. It
would seem that a Legislator was unmindful of the
interest of the people •to refuse his vote lor
the endorsement of the bonds of r a Railroad
by the State, when the whole road is mort
gaged to secure it against loss and protect its
credit. But these ar? points that require the closest
examination and study. Will not ttie road in
the event of a failure he thrown back upon the
State and will it pay l Is not the whole question
attendant with difficulties that may prostrate the
State’s credit ? flow discriminate between the
claims of the numerous roads applying for aid ?
Will not a road be built by private enterprise,
where it is actually wantod and where it w ill be
profitable ? These and kindred questions will arise
which require mature deliberaiion and reflection
on the part ol the Legislator to decide in a manner
that time will approve.
Another question is looked over by the Leg
islature in its hurry to pass a few focal bills.
It is the re-organization of the Supreme Court.
Tins is recommended at eveiy session, but a few
old fogy members are always opposed to a change.
They forget that the bill organizing that tribunal
i was passed w'ith great difficulty, and is not perfect-
They forget that they opposed so wise a measure
I as the granting of a Charter simply to build the
Central road—that their notions of change and the
progress of the age are widely apart as the poles—
Notwithstanding this element of opposition in the
Legislature, we believe that the Supreme Court
will hereatterby legislative enactment sit at only
one place and this itinerant, saddle-bag system,
so unfair for the Judges will bo abolished. We
mean by no means to cast censure in these remarks
upon the two Judges, whose decision upon the
Bank question has lately been submitted to and in
terpreted by the people. Allowing for others an
honest difference of opinion, we say for ourselves
I as far as we have been enabled to understand the
question, the law has been decided as it is written
and does not overrulo a former decision. The equi
ty or justice of it is altogether another question.
But the Court should be re organized and that too
by the present Legislature.
We have given our views upon the subject of
University education. We will not repeat them.
Ileieafter we will pursue this subject and discuss
the propriety of the passage of such measures as
we think important to the interest of the people.
The East India Company,—Deposed.
The first day of the present month was signaliz
ed in Great Britain by the forma! resumption on
the part of that Government of the power which,
fora long period of time, had been committed in
trust, or for plunder, to the East India Company.
For more than a century and a half, this band of
robbers have been invested with the forms and
essence ol have exerted the pre
rogative ol absolute dominion in wasting the sub
stance and crushing the energies of that benighted
people. Once, in the history of their crimes, their
severe and intolerable exactions alarmed the fears
and disturbed the conscience of even British cu
“The loud cry of trampled Hindostan
Arose to heaven, in her appeal to man.”
In the year 1787, Edmund Burke, who had de
voted long years to the investigation of English
oppressions in India, and whose great heart did
ever beat in unison with the pulsations of human
freedom, came forward in the British Commons
for the impeachment of Warren Hastings. That
functionary was, then, Governor-General of India,
and his terrible exactions had become a reproach
to the English name. Assisted by the genius of
Sheridan, Mr. Burke succeeded before the House
of Commons—hut failed on the trial before the
House of Lords, and India was left to sutler from
the rapacity of her unprincipled rulers. From that
day until two years past, their extortionate de
mands have been endured with various degrees of
discontent, when the volcano, whose wrath had
long been suppressed, burst forth in the recent re
bellion. It is an admirable and beneficent ar
rangement in the order of Providence, that, when
a sense of justice imposes no restraint upon the
inordinate demands of power, the philosophy of
self-interest compels some regard to right with a
force of logic which may not be resisted. The
fortunes of the recent war in British India—the
enormous expense at which it has been maintain
ed, have, doubtless, conducted the Government of
Great Britain to the conclusion that its adminis
tration in that distant dependency was not so pa
ternal as it might have been, and that some re
spect to the rights of the governed must be obsetv
ed, in order to preserve the integrity of itsempiie.
Accordingly, that hoary despot—the East India
Company—has been dethroned, and degraded from
a sovereign to a mere trader. Its reign will not
soon be forgotten ; for the dark impression of its
ravages will endure for ages on the fortunes of the
Hindoo. Henceforth its rights, powers aud titles
are the possession of the Crown of Great Britain,
and nothing remains, to tell of its former great
ness, but a history of revolting crime.
INew York Quarantine—Removal or Re
strictions. —At a meeting of the health commis
sioners on the 20th insL.iit was resolved to reduce
the term of detention of New Orleans and Charles
ton vessels arriving at quarantine with sickness on
board to eight days, and those without sickness to
four days, thus shortening the detention over one-

Miss Mary E. Keen has retired from the
editorial department of the Bainbridge

known “ Jennie Woodbine, ” will continue
the presiding divinity over the “Ladies’
Bureau ” of that paper.
Since 1830, nearly 27,000 miles of rail
road have been built in the United States,
which have cost, on an average, about
$35,000 per mile, or $945,000,000.

Maine Election. —The vote for Congress
in the Sixth District is very close. So far
as is known, Foster, “Republican,” lias 865
majority in Hancock, and 220 in Washing
ton county ; while the Democrats claim
for Bradbury 1,000 majority in Aroostook,
and 13 in Waldo, which is probably cor
rect. This allows Foster 42 ma jority. An
error is alleged, however, in the footings
of Hancock and Washington in favor of
Bradbury, so that the official count can
only determine the result.
HA IR RES TOR ATI YE.
JgsPOld and young are now indiscriminately
using Prof. Wood’s Hair Restorative; some as a
cosmetic or bcauiifier of the complexion, some to

change gray hair to its original color; and there
is no doubt of its answering all the purposes tor
which it was designed by its illustrious inventor.
We are 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 falling off') actu
ally and permanently restored, so neither do we
consider it unworthy the editorial profession to
