A New Invention.
We have been shown by the inventor, Mr.
John M. Hall, of Warren county, Ga., an agri
cultural implement, which is designed to facilitate
the operation of chopping cotton. It is claimed,
and vouched by a number of persons, that, by the
use of it, one man and a horse can do the work oi
five or six hands. Xbc whole apparatus is placed
upon a pair of cast iron wheels. In front are two
small turning plows with the bare of each in
juxtaposition, but separated at the proper distance
for making a furrow on each side of the cotton at
the same time. Behind and connected by a sim
ple cog gearing with one of the above mentioned
wheels, is a circular cast iron frame for receiving
the knives or hoes for chopping the drill. A for
ward motion of the machine give a rotary motion
to the hoes, and by the combination of both mo
tions, spaces are alternately chopped and passed
over. The space chopped is determined by the
width of the hoe, while the distance skipped may
be regulated by their number or the direction given
to them on the frame. Or. the whole we are much
pleased with the invention end think it may be
practically applied with great advantage on old
land. Wo understand that Messrs. Hall Moses fc
Cos., will soon Lave some for exhibition and sale,
when our planting friends will have an opportuni
ty to judge for themselves.
Message of the Gov. of Florida.
We have received the annual message of the
Governor of Florida to the General Assembly, with
accompanying documents. The message is a
lengthy document, but it is replete with good
sense and wise counsel. Following the track of

resource of the State than her Internal Improve

A City Seven Hundred Years Old. —The
Vienna correspondent of the London Times states
that on the 17th of September there was a festival
at Munich in commemoration of the 700th an
niversary of the day on which the city was found
ed. Anything more magnificent and imposing than
the procession which passed through its streets on
the above mentioned day has seldom been wit
nessed. The procession, which was composed of
3,000 persons and 600 horses, contained tableaux
of the principal events which have occurred in Ba
varia during the last seven centuries, and the por
traits of many of the more remarkable person
ages who have figured in South German histoi’y
during that period.
“A Wife Insurance Company.”-— Some of
the principal capitalists of London are engaged in
the formation of anew company for insurance
from damage by fire. In consequence of the con
stantly occurring accidents, by which ladies, ow
ing to the immensity of their dresses, are either
burnt to death, or have a large portion of the val
uable and extensive stock of drapery which they
carry about them destroyed, these eminent finan.
cial gentlemen have determined to establish a
Wife Insurance Company.

A Fortunate Inventor.— The Scientific
American, in some pleasing gossip about its ear
liest friends who have been successful as inven
tors, thus alludes to the case of Mr. Howe, the
great pioneer of the sewing machine:
Elias llowe, Jr., of Cambridge, Mass, obtain
ed a patent for the first practically useful sewing
machine in 1816. For several years it was a
source of annoyance and expense to him, with
little or no pecuniary profit. Since that time,
many improvements have been patented, and the
manufacturing of sewing machines is'now one of
most extensive businesses in the United States,
and thousands are sold annually. Elias Howe,
jr., once a poor inventor, with but a few friends,
now receives from the most prominent makers of
sewing machines, a tribute that will make him
beforo the first term of his patent expires, 1860,
one of the wealthiest men in this country. We
do not speak ffom any positive knowledge of the
facts, but his present annual income cannot be
calculated at less than one hundred thousand dol
lars. Certain it is, that in the course of a single
month lie must have received from one establish
ment no less than six thousand dollars, judging
from tho number of machines sold by that con
cern. On almost any pleasant day, a portly man
with flowing hair, white cravat, and broad brim

Tuesday Morning, Nov. 30.
Wilcoxon of Coweta, to prevent Judges of tbo
courts in this State from sitting in certain cases;
a memorial was in connextion from certain per
sons. During the reading Slaughter of Dougher
ty, arose to a point of order. He objected to this
manner of traducing the character of Judges of
the Supreme Court. This memorial also, casts
reflections on the Legislature of 1853-4 in elec
ting Judge Benning. If these memorialists desire
to impeach Judges Benning and McDonald let
them proceed in the proper manner. The House
of Representatives was the body to take charge of
such an accusation.
Wilcoxon of Coweta, said that he thought that
the Senate would at least hear the memorialists.
Do gentlemen desire to quell any effort “to investi
gate this subject.
Pending the decision, Bloodworth of Carroll
moved to adjourn. The motion was agreed to,
and the Senate adjourned until 3 o’clock p. m.

of tho question of the reading the memorial, Ac.
Slaughter of Dougherty withdrew his objection
to its being read.
After it was read Colquitt of Muscogee asked
the permission of the Senate to have read a me
morial from John A. Jones, Esq.
Some objection was raised.
Wilcoxon of Coweta moved that 150 copies be
printed for the use of the Senate.
Tucker of Stewart opposed the motion with all
of his force and eloquence. He ably defended
Judge Benning. liis closing remark was this:
‘Sir, I have known Henry L. Benning for fourteen
years, and I will say that a more honest or up
right man God never let breathe the breath of
Slaughter of Dougherty defended the court in
a beautiful manner.
Thomas of Gwinnett was in favor of printing
as a mere manner of getting at the truth.
Mr. Bartlett of Jasper: Who is 11. L. Benning?
Young though he is, he is not unknown in Geor
gia. Ask the associates of his boyhood, of his
manhood, of his maturer years, all without hesi
tation will tell you he is an honest man —the no
blest work of God. No! let all these charges be
published —the memorial goes upon the Jour
nal of the Senate, and if thus restricted can nec
essarily be road by butfew. But publish it all, let
it go forth to the people, and an honest public sen
timent will surely re-act, and crush, the slander
ers of the fair fame of Georgia’s public servant.
Is there a man here who believes, or is ready to
assert,that the decision complained of was corrupt
ly made? If so, go to tho end of the Capitol and
prefer your writ of impeachment and let the par
ties be heard! The very slave against whom a
charge is preferred is given a full and fair hear
ing; the most degraded wretch that defiles God’s
green earth is not condemned, and cannot be, un
der our Constitution and Laws, without a hear
ing, and will you withhold this right from the
Judge of your Supreme Court. The magnanimi
ty of this Senate, I feel assured will answer, no !
He felt it his duty to express his views upon
the question. 110 differed from many of the
friends of the court, who had addressed the Sen
ate, and believed that the printing of the memo
rial would disarm the hand of the knife, with
which the memorialsts were endeavoring to strike
these distinguished men in the back. It would
at last close the clamor that the friends of the
court desired to suppress, an investigation. Mr.

After the usual formalities, the House proceed

attention paid to any subject,than was manifested
by the members during the reading of tho various
bills relative to this subject. If the present Gen

not be, because its importance is not appreciated.
The difficulty is, that members cannot agree upon
The substitute reported for all the bills was
read, when Mr. Lends of Hancock, offered two
amendments, which he sustained in a short speech
abounding in practical truths, which commended
themselves to our judgment as eminently practi
cal. He concluded by saying, so anxious was he
to see something done on this subject, that he was
willing for the purpose of conciliation, to yield up
some of his predilections, he called upon other
members to come up in a spirit of compromise and
this House could accomplish a great deal—in
fact inaugurate a plan. Mr. Lewis’ idea seemed
to be to furnish to every child an education in
orthography, reading, writing, and arithmetic,
free, be the parents rich or poor.

who had been for some time very ill, and in ad
vaneed age. His’ son, Robert Dale Owen, late
Minister at Naples, and formerly a representative
from Indiana, and one of the most architectural
members of his day in Congress, took the first op
portunity, on being released at Naples by the ar
rival of his successor, Joseph R. Chandler, to visit
his aged father in England. Our English ex
changes have prepared us to expect, at any mo

given of the State of his health, and in considera

a varied and eventful life, which will furnish rich

On Tuesday night last, as the editor of this pa
per was returning home from the post office, he
was violently assaulted by some unknown fiend in
human form, with a stick and felled to the ground.
The night was exceedingly dark, which enabled
the cowardly ruffian to escape detection after per
petrating his hellish purpose. But for a friend
who was attracted to the spot by our cries for help
we to-day would have been sleeping our last sleep.
That we have enemies, wc are aware : but never
dreamed that a man of our small and feble frame
would be assaulted in the dark. An open enemy
we always respect. There is something manly in
the man who fearle? . uikcs hi? position and pre
sents an open fr >.i. Such an one we know where
to locate, and r not afraid to meet. But a snea
king, cowardly rascal who, under tho cover of
darkness, sio: tkily creeps behind his victim and
assaults him, ve must confess we are afraid of.—
Such a man would apply the torch to the dwelling
of an enemy w hilst he and his family wen asleep.
Yea, he would gloat over the scene with hellish
joy as the lurid flames drowned the plaintive wails
of helpless infancy! Thanks to a kind Frovidence,
although considerably bruised, we r ro still able to
be at our post, iul.be discharge of duty.— Lump

Tho Hon. Win. Barksdale, member of Congress
from the northeastern district of Mississippi, was
invited recently to deliver an address upon the
political topics of tho day before the Legislature
now in session at Jackson. In his letter of reply,
which was duly read, lie expressed regret that in
dispensable engagements prevented his addressing
tho Legislature, and alluded, according to the
Jackson Eagle of the South of the 27th inst., to
the probable contingencies of the political future
in this wise:
“It is not beyond the range of possibilities that
the superior number of our enemies (at the North)
may secure tho triumph at tho ballot-box in 1860.
In that event I have no hesitation in saying, that
it will become the duty of Mississippi, to assert
her independence, vindicate her rights, and resume
the powers which she has delegated to the Gener
Col. Davis, in his last speech, if we are not
mistaken, gave utterance, substantially, to the
same sentiment. Senator Brown, as is well
known, entertains rather stringent views, and all
the loading men of the South, of all parties, if wo
except Gov. Hammond of South Carolina, have
arrived at about the same conclusions. There
may be here and there an exception, but this will
not affect the general result.
Well, we shall sec what these valiant gentlemen
will do when the time arrives to reduce their the
ories to practice. The opportunity, we fear, will
be afforded them right speedily. We doubt wheth
er they will be obliged to wait the short space of
two years. Coming events are casting rapidly
thickening shadows before, and the period, when
they must either fight or run away, back down,
and stultify themselves generally, is, as it were,
at hand. Me trust they will be prepared for it,
and that there will be, to use a cant phrase, no

A Boy’s Tongue Fastened to a Lamp
Post.— On Saturday morning, a little fellow,
about eight years old. a son of Mr. Gilleau, book
seller, while playing with some other boys on
North street, approached a lamp post and care
lessly applied his tongue to its gray frosted sur
face, when, in an instant, to the boy’s own horror
and utter astonishment of his playmates, he was
held last by his tongue to the post, suffering very
severe pain, and totally unable to help or extri
cate himself. Of course the boy could not speak,
and could only manifest his feeiings by signs with
his hands. Various applications of warm tea,
steam, Ac., were made by some neighbors, who
heard the unusual noise made by the other boys,
and came to learn what was the matter, but ofc'uo
avail, such was the action of the cold iron that
the hold was even getting tighter. When, after
ten minutes had elapsed, the boy’s father heard of
the affair, and hastening to his relief, he took a
knife and was obliged to cut the tongue loose,
leaving its skin still fast to the post, and causing
the blood to flow very profusely. Immediately
on his release, the poor little fellow became insen
sible, and was taken home. —London (C. lU.)

Beans for Poultry.— Perhaps it may not be
generally known that beans are good food for hens
and, with the addition of a little meal, cause them
to lay abundantly. For a year or two past, there
has been a large quantity of bad beans, which have
to be sorted out from the good, to render the latter
saleable. Now, of those bad beans, wc take about
four quarts, boil them well, and mix with three
pints of meal, and when cool, feed to our hens,
and we find that they richly repay all the trouble.
W hether it is some peculiar property of the beans,
or what it is that causes them to lay, not knowing,
I couldn't say. But we know by experience that
they do lay abundantly; and also that they are
very fond of the mixture.— Cor..Maine Farmer.
