I hope I have made hiyself perfectly under

is the creed of any r'eligioos sector denomina

•disapprove of it. I do believe- that it "has a
tendency to give us better plough, saddlii, and
harness horses, and finally, 1 do believe that
the anathemas which,l am told, have been lately
thundered forth from the pulpit, unmerited and
inpdlitic, and that the evil, if one, js not likely
to be remedied by denun,elation, but if a reform
can be accomplished, it will be rather by argu

Sir —the troops under my command,
took up the line of march on yesterday
morning, to scour out-the Wacahouta and
adjacent hammocks, and not wishing to
be encumbered with baggage, I despatch
ed baggage wagons to take the direct
route for Wetumpka, via Micanopy; on
arriving at the Kanopaha, prairie, I im
mediately took Capt. McLemore’s and
Capt. Lancaster’s companies, pursued
on the trail, and on arrival at Benj. War
ren’s, found his house in flames; passing
on we found that a body of Indians, fifty
or sixty in number, had attacked and cap
tured our baggage as it passed over the
Prairie, and set the wagon on fire. The
1 Officer in command of the baggage train
| with several of the esoort had retired to
I Micanopy, and I have not been able to as-
I certain correctly, what loss has been sus-

a - Recently it.bas pleased’sprne calumnia
tors to circulate injurious and libelous.
t reports respecting the stability ofthe AX'
r chanic’s Bank bfAugUst i. These reports
I i have caused many to believe t lf i this
c , Bank was unable to redeem its Hilf-. It
j is quite evident that some private pique
against the Mechanic’s Batik Ms induced
the circulation of that unfounded slander.
Since we have heard thisjbport, We have
, examined the state qftMTßa’hk. as exhi
bited in the last semiannual statement of
f its concerns and operations, and we assure
' our friends and th/public generally that
that Bank is oqKof the soundest, ifnotthe
very soundest Bank iu Georgia. There
1 is no banking institution in that state, more
' desvrviyg of confidence, and none in a
i.iore. Secure condition.
But a few days ago it declared a divi
dend at the rate of 8 per cent, per share;
and its stock is sought after at a high
premium. The stock holders in that in
stitution are, mostly, men of great wealth ;
residents of this State as well as Georgia,
dnd their private property is held respon
sible for the liquidation,of ev#ry bill the
Bank has now in circulation, if any dej
falcation should happen in its operations?*
The Mechanic’s Bqnk has never refu
sed specie for its bilhf, when demanded-;
and those who are fl all doubtful of its
stability, can easily be satisfied by apply
ing to the -Bank with any amount of its
Bills and they will receive gold and sil
ver for every cent/’
We have madef-the above remarks in
sheer justice to one of the best Banking
institutions in Georgia, and for no other
purpose. We are opposed to the circula
tion of Georgia money in this state, to the
extent it has formerly been carried, but al
though so opposed, we will be among the
first to expose any vindictive slanders
which may be prorogated against them.
If the matter Was thoroughly investigated,
and the authgr of the report detected, we
hardly hazard a donbtbut that it wouldbe
found to have resulted in the most con
temptible and dastardly rntdignity,

opportunity of witnessing a most heart

lovely liule creature, and in the fanciful
dress she Wore, as she steadily and light

beautifullittle spirit, whose proper path is
on a. sunbeam through the air, than a
mortal’s child. A stillness almost breath

beneath and many of the countless eyes
