Our Trip to Atlanta.
Lust Monday in company with the
prince of good fellows, Newt Wright,
we wore safely landed in Rome by
Flournoy Treadaway than whom
there are but few better livery men.
We were way-billed to Atlanta where
we arrived in due season. Rnsiness
being onr otrjeot, to business we im
mediately went. Newt following the
bend of his inclinations', we ours.
It were useless to tell onr mission.
When ever a news-paper mangoes
out for business it is presumable
that it is for advertisements and sub
scriptions. Well, that wa« our b' si-
ne8S and wo succeeded measurably
We found Atlanta to be a live
place. Evidences of energy and
thrift can be seen on every hand.
The merchants are hopeful of a good
trade. They don't expect an untisu
ally large trade, nor do they want it
us unsettled as is the condition of
While there we visited the ceme
tery m company with a Mr. Osier
who went thither to find if he could
the last resting place of a dear broth
er who was wounded at Peach Tree
Creek tight and died few days after
ward in the hospital. We could not
find it. How many “unknown”
graves there are! The cemetery is a
beau til u I spot of earth and contains
the bones of hundreds of onr people
who gave their all in defense of what
they conceived to be right. Peace to
There arc sonic immense business
bouses in Atlanta. We went through
‘from cellar to garret of Mess. Moore,
Marsh & Go’.s mammoth wholesale
bouse. These gentlemen did a bus
iness last year of over a million of
■dollars. They have five departments:
the cellar for leather; the first floor
for dry goods; the second for notions;
the third for hoots und slioeo and the
fourth for hats and caps. They are
clever gentlemen and merit nil the
trade they get.
We next visited the extensive re
tail dealers,J Mess*. Chamberlain,
Boynton & 0o. It is a cariosity to
enter this typical bee-hive. Clerks
•and customers all over the house.
Every department is overflowing
with bright new goods nnd they are
Belling them, too. We found Mr.
Boynton to he a whole-souled man.
Thoir Mr. Chumbcrhiin wus not in
Wending our way around we run
onto the whole sule whiskey house of
John Jones, son of our fellow-towns
man, A. It. Jones. Shepard says
that Mr. Jones has a fine assortment
liquors and we suspect that Shepard
‘knows; likewise does he say the same
of the State Line distillery goods
owned by Mr. Wm. Rich. Passing
on up the street we were invited into
the establishment of Mr. John Lago
niarsino, wholesale manufacturer of
plain and fuijcy candies vmd fruiter
er. Mr. Lagohiarsino solicits tho
patronage of our merchants nnd we
trust they will share a portion of it
The furniture business is well rep
resented in Atlanta by Mr. James L.
Watkins. He will sell you a set of
furniture on monthly payments.
We must not forget to mention the
Thompson restaurant. The best
oysters we ever ate was served by
him, and if you don’t believe lie

The host place we found was onr
boarding honse. We stopped at the
Wilson House kept by Mr. Keith.
Ho is.said to keep tile best second
class hotel in the city and we believe
it. He treats one well nnd feeds
well. Give the Wilson a call.
Wc met in Atlanta two of ourciti-
zens, Col. Tidwell and S. P. Shep
ard. The Colonel was in attendance
upon the United States Court. We
verily believe lie knows every man
in Atlanta. He placed 11s under last
ing obligations to him for introduc
ing us favorably to many of Atlanta’s
best business men. To Mr. Shopnrd,
too, we return our politest bow, and
hope some day to be able to recipro
cate the favor to both the gentlemen.
Saturday morning we started
homeward. Wc are under obliga
tions to the railroad authorities for
courtesies shown. For the first time
we onme over onr road, the Narrow
Guage. Mr. Vandiver, the Conduc
tor, understands end attends to bis
business in every particular. Home
A Rebuke to Democratic Senators
and Representatives—The Yel
Washington, March 8,1878.
One half the bills presented in
Congress are in direct violation, ei
ther in letter or spirit, ol the Cons!i-
tution. These bills are prepared by
people with special interests to be
served, by public ollicers who wish
for extended powers, or who have
theories they wish to test, or by an
active lobtiy which sees a possibility
of plunder in every deviation from
simplicity in Government. Every
public officer is watched by an olli-
cer, who, in his turn, is watched,
ery Court in some sections of tl e
Oiunlry is at once aided aid
seized upon by ollicers, and all there
spies and aids arc the unnecessary
and vicious ■oreutnres of s system ol
legislation not thought ol in this
country before 1861, And which, if
ever necessary, ceased to bo years
ago. Every Department of the Gov
ernment hue its secret, agents scut
tered through every stale; forming
an irregular nnd irresponsible body
of men whose very employment sug
gests to them the corrupt use of pow-
■cr It may he that most of those who
will read this letter, have in no ap
preciable way, except in the'amount
of their taxes, suffered from this evil,
but all of them may at any moment
suffer. It .is u wonder that Demo
crats m House and Senate content
themselves with feeble opposition to
new usurpations of a Republican nd
ministration, and do not attack ex
isting wrongs. Senator Thurman or
Senator Bayard, or Senator Beck,
or Representatives Glover, Ediu,
Stephens, Springer, Cox, Lynde,
Morrison, Potter, or any of tile hun
dred other able men in Congress
could do no better work for the coun
try or thoir party than by a thor
ough exposure of the changes that
have been made in the methods of
transacting the business of tho Fed
eral Government, Exposure in tliis
matter would at once force reforma
tion. The Senate yesterday passed
the hill authorizing the issue of a
long bond for the investment of
savings, which provides that, in lien
of the 4 pvr cent, bunds authorized
by the act of July 14 1870, the Sec
retary of the Treasury issue a sum
not exceeding *1-00,000,000 of coupon
bonds of tho denomination of *26,
'*60 and *100, nbd of rqiuil sitmi 6f
each denomination, redeemable in
coin 60 years from date nnd.bcaring
interfst payable semi-annually in
coin at the rate of 4 per cert, per un-
num, said bonds to be exempt from
taxation. The Secretary shall keep
the bonds Tor sale at tho different
sub-treasuries, Nntionnl banks a id
money depositories of the United
States, and shall dispose of them at
par and accrued interest in coin or
United States legal tender notes at
their nominal vain It is of course
impossible to say what action the
House will take on the measure, lint
it would seem that favorable action

I am indebted to Prof. Hayden for
several years past engaged in sur
veying the “Yellowstone National
Park” for tho follow!; g information
concerning it. It is the largest Na
tional Park in the world. It was
cut aside and dedicated ns a public
park and pleasure ground by Act of
Congress of Moll 1, 1872. It is silu-
uted at the son roes of the Yellowsone
and Mississippi fivers, in the Terri,
tories of Wyoming and Montana and
comprises a territory of 55 by 65
miles (3576 square miles) and its
general elevation is more than 0000
feet above the level of the sea, and
some of its peaks rise to the height
of 10.000 or 12.000 feet. It derives
its interest not only from its great
elevation, but from tile volcanic char
acter of the wliolo region about the
Yellowstone, and especially from the
two great Geyser Basins within its
limits all the various manifestations
of volcanic activity, except the fire-
volcano, can here be found upon a
grand scale. Ill addition to its vol
canic characteristics, the natural
beauty of the scenery of tile Park,
is unsurpassed. Within this Park
are the sources of the Yeiloivetonc,
the Missouri, Snake river, Green riv
er, and Wind river. The Yellowstone
lake, 300 feet deep, is the most beau
tiful lake in tho world—a gem set
among the mountains. The lake has
an area of 15 by 22 miles, nnd an al-
titilde of 7488 feet, and u circumfer
ence of376 miles, being the largest ‘ ,r "» T
body of water in the world at that
elevation. The mountains that hem
the vnlleys on every side, rise to the
height of 10.000 and 12.000 feet.
