COLUMBUS, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 26.
The Late Elections—Democracy.
It is a matter of congratulation with every pa
triot of the country that the Democracy at the
North have fallen in a struggle for principle. Iti'--
ing above the horizon of present passion and local
prejudice, they planted themselves upon those im
mutable truths which have heretofore guided as a
beacon light the Democratic party and preferred a
temporary defeat ton sacritice of principle and on
ill-gotten victory. The Republican party stooped
to every subtifuge for success and had no bond of
union except the cohesive power of spoils. They
gathered to their embrace protective tariff and dis
affected Douglas Democrats and free-labor Amer
icans and fought with a desperation worthy a bet
ter cause. The renegade Forney—whose vault
ing ambition had overleaped itself, whose disap
pointment and chagrin at not receiving n high of
fice from the President burned as a brand in the
quivering flesh—used all his great powers to de
feat his old friends and accomplish a victory for
his former enemies. Notwithstanding this unholy
alliance against the Democracy, we find men, like
Hon. Jf Glancey Jones of Pennsylvania, rejecting
the olive branch tendered them of a high impost on
iron and clinging to the old time-honored demo
cratic principles with nil the zeal and honest en
thusiasm, that the Christians of the Middle age
hugged to their bosoms the Holy Cross. Is not
the prestige of such a defeat worth a thousand vic
In lowa and Indiana, however, the Democracy
have triumphed : and the true men of the party
are encouraged to believe that in those places
where it has met with defeat, it has been accom
plished by an opposition whose elements are in
congruous and whose union will prove to be a “rope
of sand”—Then the democracy should not be dis
heartened. The voice of the South will soon speak
in tones of approbation to those true men at the
North who recently fell in the hard-fought Le
—“paying a tribute of just applause
To those who died in such a cause.”
The Administration, too, has gallantly stood by
the South. The tone of the Washington Union to
wards those democrats who hankered after the flesh
pots of Federalism—who advocated an unjust dis
crimination against the agriculturists of the coun
try in fa vor of a-few manufacturers of iron—is in
deed significant. It proves conclusively that the
Administration with principle for its guide will
oppose all false doctrines with the same purity of
purpose and patriotic motive, which actuated the
iron-nerved Jackson to demolish a United States
bank or veto iniquitous internal improvement bills
passed by Congress—All honor to the Administra
tion and its faithful followers!
Comptroller General's Report.
We resign a large portion of our space, this
morning, to the able report of Peterson Thweatt,
Esq., Comptroller General for the State. The
whole report displays a degree of energy and in
dustry in the collection of facts, and of just obser
vation upon our system of taxation which may not
be-found in other papers issued from that otlice,
before the installation of the present incumbent.
cinct and lucid exhibition of the finances of the
State, their manner of distribution, and the prob
able condition of the Treasury at the close of the
fiscal year 1859. It assumes, or rather demon
strates, that alter paying the ordinary expenses of
the State Government, reducing the public deb
s4s,ooo, and setting apart for extraordinary apt
propriations the sum of $50,000, a surplus will
main in the Treasury of $219,325 10 to be devoted
to whatever purpose the Legislature may direct.
This is certainly a flattering representation of the
financial condition and prospects of Georgia. It
is based, mainly, upon the assumption (to the
truth of which the experience of the last eight
months imparts a high degree of fixedness) that
the IV estern and Atlantic Railroad will continue
to yield a nett income of $25,000 per month. In
compliance with an Act of the Legislature making
it the duty of the Comptroller General to accom
pany his Annual Report with such recommenda
tions with respect to the revenue laws of this State
as to him may seem proper, Mr. Thweatt has in
dulged his leisure at considerable, but not too great
length. We have read his suggestions carefully,
and heartily concur in every recommendation ho
has made. Our space will not allow us to consid
er them here, but we will advert to some of them
at an early day. llis views are so just and bear
upon subjects of such general interest that they
deserve to be pressed upon public attention. It
will appear from the tables annexed to the report,
that the Comptroller General has not confined
himself to the requirements of official duty, but
has carried his exertions beyond them, and collec
ted much statistical information having an inti
mate nnd important relation with subjects which,
doubtless, will claim tho early and earnest atten
tion of our Legislature. We allude to the sub
jects of Education, Free and Common Schools Ac.
YV e feel confident that the report will commend
itself to all who will take the trouble to examine it.
and will win for Mr. Thweatt the meed of praise
which it is always the pleasing duty of a people
to accord to a public servant, who discharges his
official obligations with so much energy and faith
Give us a Chance.
The receipts of the Muscogee Railroad, although
large beyond precedent, are greatly diminished
by insufficient means of transportation. The cause
of this lies not in any deficiency of rolling stock
owned by said Company, but in the fact that the
ears, freighted at this point with cotton, are not
returned with sufficient promptness by the roads
east of us. Y\ e are not acquainted with the diffi
culty which may lie in the way of a remedy for
this state of things and cannot, therefore, charac
terize the responsibility which they incur for this
neglect; but, it is apparent that the result must
be very prejudicial to this market. There are now
awaiting shipment 3,000 bags of cotton and only a
dozen cars are here to do the work. No wonder
our market has been and is depressed. We hope the
Central and South-Western Roads will have a care
for our situation and do whatever in their power
lies to relieve us.

Comptroller General’s Office,
Milledgeville , Oct. 20th, 1858.
To His Excellency Joseph E Brown, Governor :
Sir :—ln compliance with the provisions of an
act of the 28th December, 1843, I have the honor
to lay before your Excellency a statement of the
receipts und'disbursements at the Treasury during
the fiscal year 1858, showing a balance in the
Treasury at the end of the year, of $455,918 65.
Of this balance $455,918 65, now in the Treas
ury, there is, however, unavailable, the sum of
$325,564, consisting of the following items, viz:

Leaving an available balance in the Treasury
of $130,354 65 to meet the balance unpaid on the
appropriations for 1858, amounting to the sum of
$110,130 43. There was an available balance in
the Treasury on the 2tth October, 1857, of 112,-
262 16, to meet appropriations unpaid, amount
ing to $84,111 36; leaving the sum of $28,151 80,
as a balance in the Treasury after paying all the
appropriations for 1857.

accompanies this report as required by an act of
the 23d of Dec., 1539, setting forth the amounts

While the demands upon the Treasury for the
fiscal year, 1858, is $77,383 78, more than were
the demands upon the Treasury during the fiscal
year. 1557, still the receipts into the Treosury
(not including the proceeds from the sale of State
Bonds) from all sources except the Western and
Atlantic Railroad, have been $22,037 60 less than
they were in 1857. The reason for this is: Ist,
more of the old tax claims that were worth any
thing, were collected last year; and, 2dly, there
was received in ISSS, $11,332 68, less from the
general tax 0f1557. than was received in 1557
from the general tax of 1556. The increased re
ceipts from the Western and Atlantic Railroad be
ing this year $91,500 more than that of last year.
The payment intv the Treasury in 1857, from
the road being $108,500.
It will therefore be seen that, but for the follow
ing monthly incomes into the State Treasury this
year, from the net earnings of the Western and At
lantic Railroad, the State could not have met the
ordinary expenses of government, reduced the
public debt and paid the interest on the same as it
became due. and met the large appropriations of
the last Legislature to the Lunatic Asylum, Aca
demy for the Blind. Medical Colleges, Ac. Ac., as
they have been called for, without temporarily
borrowing money for this purpose: As it is, all
demands have been prompty met, and there is an
abundant surplus—and with the taxes for 1853,
now coming in, and with further anticipated re
ceipts from the railroad, this surplus will continue
to increase from day to day.
There is still due to the Atlantic and Gulf Rail
road Company the sum of $400,000; (and the
State is bound for a further subscription of $500,-
000. when the private stockholders raise an addi
tional $600,000;) but the Act making the State’s
subscription to this work, provided also for the is
sue of State six per cent, bonds, payable at the ex
piration of twenty years, in the event of there not
being money in the Treasury to meet, the install
ments as they are called for; consequently, this
subscription has been charged to the Treasury
only as the bonds have been issued and sold to the
Having thus dwelt upon and exhibited the op
erations of our State Government, financially, for
the past twelve months, I will now turn with
greater pleasure to the future, ensuing fiscal year,
as it exhibits the financial affairs of Georgia in a
still more flourishing and flattering condition.
With an almost nominal State tax, - it being but
three fourths of a mill on the dollar, or se\ enty-fiv e
i cents on the one thousand dollars, on all the prop
: erty in Georgia—except bank and railroad capital
—we shall raise for the ensuing fiscal year, at
least $375,000. Judging from the past eight
months, and if the Superintendent of the ‘V estern
A Atlantic Railroad be not greatly mistaken, said
road will pay into the State treasury, as net earn
ings, at least $300,000 annually. Add to this the
bank tax of $31,120 11; the dividends from. bank
stock, $29,575 00; the tax on railroads *0,204 9-4 ;
and from miscellaneous items, $5,770 88, and we
will have an income of $747,675 88. V\ bile on the
other hand, it is not at all probable that the ex
traordinary appropriations for ISA be as
large as thev were this year by sloo,ooo. ine
Lunatic Asylum, Academy for the Blind, Georgia
Military Institute, and Medical Colleges of Sa\ -
annah and Atlanta, having been provided lor to
a liberal extent, it is not supposed that much more
if any, will be asked for to complete their build
ings, Ac., Ac. This being the case, it will be seen
that there will be a large surplus at the endol the
year, to be applied to the reduction of the Public
Debt, to Education, or to any other purpose the
representatives of the people may think proper.
Assuming then, that the ordinary receipts into
the Treasury for the fiscal year 1859, will be as
From General Tax, - - $375,000 00
Net Earnings of W. A A. Railroad, 300,000 00

for 1858, - - - 20,224 22
And we have total, - ■ $767,906 10
The demand upon the Treasury for the same
year will approximate as follows:
To pay members of the Legislature SIOO,OOO 00

For extraordinary appropriations, say 50,000 00
Total $548,755 00
It will thus be seen that after meeting the or
dinary demands upon the treasury, and reducing
the public debt $45,000, and allowing $50,000 for
miscellaneous or extraordinary appropriations,
there will still be a surplus of $219,325 10 to ap
ply to a further reduction of the Public Debt, to
Education, or to any other purpose the next Lcg
islature may dGfJJk’iSßueu, < yci vcm.;
to pay the liabilities of the Central Bank, amount
ing in all now to $241,000, and which are annual
ly falling due in comparatively small sums, there
will be no State bonds due sooner than 1562.
There are, however, $289,500 of State bonds issu
ed in 184S, for the benefit of the railroad, and not
due until 1863 and 1868, but the State in issuing
them having reserved to itself the right to redeem
them and stop interest at any time after ten years,
these bonds can now be redeemed at any time the
State chooses to do so. There are also’s2oo,oo 7
per cent, bonds, issued in 1852, to pay for rail
road iron SIOO,OOO are due in 1862, and the State
also reserved to itself the right to redeem the $200,-
000 in 1862, if it desired to do so.
The Public Debt.
So far as I can discover from the Treasurer’s
report and the various Acts of the Legislature,
tho Public Debt, in bonds, now amounts to $2,-
631,500, which will be increased to $3,530,500,
(unless before-educed,) when the remainder (900,-
000) of the bonds for the subscription to the At
lantic and Gulf Railroad are issued. The follow

*Note. —With the slight glance I have been
able to give the late Tax Acts,within my reach,
of several Southern States, I find,that in South
Carolina, upon lands in cities, towns, villages,
boroughs, &c., the tax is 124 cents on the
SIOO, and upon other lands it is GOcentson the
SIOO, and slaves pay 70 cents per head. In
Kentucky, real and'personal estate is taxed
at 17 cents (on the SIOO. In Texas, cents
on the SIOO. In Mississippi, 16 cents on the
SIOO on land, 20 cents on money, &c., and 40
cents on each slave. In Arkansas, 164 cents
on the SIOO. In Florida, 16$ cents on the SIOO.
In Virginia, 40 cents on the SIOO on real and
personal estate, and $1 20 on each slave. In
Alabama, 20 cents on the SIOO on real estate
and other property, 50 cent on the SIOO on mo
ney at interest, and an average tax of 60
cents on each slave, (those between 15 and
30 years of age being $1 10 each) —While in
Georgia, the tax on land, and slaves, and other
property, (except Bank and Rail Road capital)
is now but 7£ cents on the SIOO.
It will therefore be seen, that while the per
cent, tax in South Carolina andTexas is near
double of that of Georgia, the per cent, of the
other States named are more than double that
of Georgia, and in Alabama, it is nearly three
times larger, while in Virginia, upon real and
personal estate, it is more than five times
larger than in Georgia.
In Ohio, the per cent., 31 cents on the SIOO,
is four times larger, and in Illinois, the per
cent, tax, 67 cents on the SIOO, is nearly nine
nmes more than it is in Georgia.
FOR THE TIMES.
“Brining our Sheaves with Is.”
“The time for toil is past, ami night has come —
The last and saddest of the harvest-eves;
Worn out with labor long and wearisome,
Drooping and faint, the reapers hasten home,
Each laden with his sheaves.
Last of the laborers, thy feet I gain,
Lord of the harvest! and mv spirit grieves
That I am burdened not so much with grain
As with a heaviness of heart and brain:—
Master, behold my sheaves!
Full well I know I have more taers than wheat,
Brambles and flowers, dry stalks and with’d leaves,
Wherefore I blush and weep as at thy feet
I kneel down, and reverently repeat,
Master, behold my sheaves!
1 know these blossoms, clustering heavily
With evening-dew upon their folded leaves,
Can claim no value nor utility,—
Therefore shall fragraney and beauty be
The glory of my sheaves.
So do I gather strength and hope anew:
For well I know thy patient love perceives
Not what I did, but what I strove to do,- —
And tho’ the full-ripe ears be sadly few,
Thou wilt accept my sheaves!”

How to Preserve Beauty.— Nothing is more
becoming to a man or woman, than a beautiful I
and luxuriant head of hair, and a woman’s beau- I
ty is certainly incomplete without a fair complex- j
ion, and he or she who neglects these great and |
important adornments of nature must expect to
suffer the mortification of premature baldness, ana
a wrinkled face and a sallow skin. Nothing is
necessary to preserve these essential attractions
but the ute of Professor Wood’s Restorative.—
Louisville Times. ...
Prof. Wood’s Hair Restorative— We have
had occasion to use this famous preparation ot
Prof. Wood’s, and after thoroughly testing its
qualities, we find that where the hair is thin it will
tl icken it, if gray it will restore it to its original
color; likewise, it gives a glossy appeaiAnce, as
well as keeps the hair from falling on. This in
valuable ingredient is for sale at the “Chinaman s
Tea Store,” southeast corner Frederick and Bal
imore streets, by Mr. J. C. Given. — Baltimore

BARBOUR COUNTY LANDS
HAVING purchased land in the West, I now
offer lor sale both my plantations, lying on
the North Cowikee Creek. The place on which
I now reside, known as the Barna Ivey Plantation
contains 2,475 acres, with a large proportion of
fresh and Hammock land. Ttv re are on the plan
tation 1,400 acres cleared, and in a fine state of
cultivation, thoroughly drained, with a large num
ber of well located ditches. The dwelling is
commodious, having 6 large rooms, neatly finish
ed, and is situated within the corporate limits ot
Glennville, convenient to the Colleges and
Churches. The out houses are in good repair and
sufficient for the accommodation of 100 negroes.
On this place, are two new gin houses, one of
which is propelled by water power, to which is
attached a grist mill, all in good order.
Lying broadside this place is mv other planta
tion, recently owned by Col. W. ll* Owens, con
taining 901 acres. The dwelling, out-bouses, gin
house and screw are all new and well finished,
and equally convenient to Glennville. Being de
termined to sell, 1 would not object to dividing
my lands to suit purchasers. To those acquainted
with these lands I need not say more—to those at
a distance, I would say that they cannot be ex
celled in point of health or productiveness in east
Glennville is noted for the morality, intelligence
and refinement of its citizens. It is situated 12
miles Irom the Mobile and Girard Railroad, 6
miles from Jemigan, a s'eamboat landing on the
Chattahooehie river, and 10 miles from Eufaula,
to which point the South-Western Railroad ot
Georgia will soon be completed. For further par
ticulars, address me at Glennvillo, Alabama.
P.S. As 1 am axious"to carry out my plans west
I propose if I can find a purchaser for the above
named lands, to let them go at the low price ot
twelve dollars and a half per acre, cash.
And if not sold before Saturday the twentieth of
November next, I will have them divided into
two or more tracts by asuivey, and offer them
on thatday at public outcry to the highest bidder.
Land buyers might do well to examine the
lands before buying elsewhere.
