Lester nt Rockmart.
Judge Lester spoke in the acade
my at Itockinart on last Saturday.
Wo are informed by a gentleman
who was present that there were
about four hundred men out to hear
him—there were three hundred and
thirty-seven by actual count inside
the acadomy and about fifty or sev-
nty-fivo crowded around the win
dows and doo s. A majority of the
crowd our informant thinks were
possibly Felton men, though wo have
aiuce heard this doubted—yet the
most careful and respectful attention
was given tho speaker. He caught
the eye of his whole audience at the
outset, charmed their attention to the
close of his speech and several times
our informant states, there were
moist eyes all over the house. Our
informant is confident that Lester
gullied voles by his speech. The
manner iu which his whole speech
was received deuumalrated this, the
close attention, the applause, laugh
ter and tno deep feeling displayed
even by these who are bitterly op
posed to him. We have yet to hear
of any place in which George Lester
bus not been well received and when
the people see him and hear him they
cannot help receiving him kindly
and respectfully. This he commands
from all. For Judge Lester we thank
our ltockmart friends for their great
kindness to him.
Our citizens are continually com
plaining ol the exceeding warm
weather, and sonic say it is the warm
est they ever saw. Their complaints
would turn to thankfulness if they
did but atop for a moment and think
of the intense heat of the Noithand
Northwest; in the crowded cities tho
people have been suffering for the
past month form sunslrok. Wher
the nights are so hot that sleep is
out the question. Where people
have to suspend business and resort
to every means to try and keep cool;
wearing cabbage leaves in their hats,
aud every other cool substance that
can be resorted to. Here, ulthougl
wo have a few warm hours through
the day, our nights are invariably
cool, and we are always blessed with
a good night’s rest. Truly, we ought
to think of these things when coni'-
plaining of the heat, and he thank
ful that it ia no worse. If we imag
ine it, is so very warm we will be apt 1
to find it bo, for our imaginations of
ten induce us to behVve many things.

Certainly she will, if it is tho “Old,

but don’t be too hasty in your woo

above, and thus gracefully hint your

By those who ought to be
accurate judges of such things the
crowd here on last Friday at the
Barbecue is estimated at twenty-five
hundred. Tho day was unusually
quiet for so large a gathering and we
think think that thu fact was owing
less to the sheriff* and deputies than
to the good humor that pervaded the
crowd throughout tho whole day.
Considerable preparations are
being made for the concert for to
night. The Dramatis Persona are
mude up from the most accomplished
young people iu our midst, and they
are now busy every day with their
rehearsals. What, with the excellent
music we anticipate, Churades aud
Tableaux, &c., of the highest order,
we kuow their entertainment will
be varied aud charming, and from
indications already on tho surface
we kuow their audience will be large.

The largest deer we have

Springer Wood. His horns indica

pity that so beautiful and noble look

for the paltry sake of a few pounds
of meat; and we houvad a sigh when
we noticed his graceful proportions

Among tho recent remarks of Gen.

ignorance and intcriipi rate habits, lor

find a copy of that pamphlet, and
will some Boswell reproduce the ta

Butler? Both of them Wish to be
President. Grant thinks lie alone
can he elected'by the Republican par
