What has been the resnlt of the Money Panics

It is a principle in the great laws of
change, that the sceptre of power cannot
be traqsfered from one section or people to
another, without temporary embarrassment
to the" one, while it brings serious, if not
permanent ruin to the other. Especially is
this true when such change is the result of
revolution. So effectually does the recip
rocal interests of the different sections of a
nation, which reciprocity is so entirely con
trolled by the law s of commerce, depend
ho one upon the other, that altering pros
perity," whii3i works the decline'of the one,
must retard or embarrass the progress of
the other proportionately with their mutu
al dependence. It might here be argued
that under this law of reciprocal depend
ence, there couldbe no surety or permanency
of national prosperity, which would not be
subject, to ruinious overthrow, under those
revolutions incident to political differences,
commercial antagonism, and such other op
posing causes as may be termed the incen
tives for sectional supremacy and indcoend-
encc. In a good degree this must be ad
mitted but it must be born in mind that
this rule is excepted to in those cases where
superior geographical relations and physi
cal advantages makes it in the power of one

This theme has been advocated by orators,
and treated upon by junrnalbts from time
immemorial, and indeed ever since enter
prise, that great motor of commerce first
sprung into existence, “ Home Enterprise”
has been the watchword along the ranks of
progress. That it should be encouraged, we
will not stop to dismiss, that it b, inmost in
stances, encouraged, only testifies man’s ap
preciation and willingness to secure advance
ment in general, but that in many cases it b
not encouraged as it should be—remains as a
sad commentary upon hb appreciation of the
progressive efforts of hb fellow men. To
make the question practical, and to bring tt
home, do we give that proper encouragement
to our enterprises, which so many of them
deserve. Athens is essentially a growing
town ; it has steadily increased in commer
cial importance since the war, but do we
bestow the proper degree of sympathy and
encouragement upon our progressive inter
ests ? We have not been found wanting, as
far as comprehension b concerned, in recog
nizing the importance of our local growth,
but we have not, if the truth must be told,
stimulated it to a sufficient extent For ex
ample, a new man comes here, opens a store
and furnishes it with a fine assortment of
goods; well that’s a good thing, we say, a
sign of business, wc are glad to see it; but
do we aid this merchant in his efforts for
mutual improvement? Do we patronize
him and show that our appreciation and ap
proval is substantia], so that by our aid he
may be sustained.
Our answer is that iu many instances, we
are remiss about this. Wc scud off to other
cities for goods and articles, when they
could be gotten here, where our patronage

Gordon and Lamar Going JVorth
It is reported that Senator Gordon, of
Georgia, and Mr. L. Q,. C. Lamar, of Miss-,
issippi, will lecture in various cities of the
North daring the Fall months preceding the
assembling of Congress. It is to be hoped
that this report is true, for it would be hard
to find two gentlemen in the whole South
more competent to enforce the lesson the
people of the North are just learning, aud
convince them that Southern Democrats are
not the bandits and negro-killers the Radi
cal press are so anxious to make them out.
Senator Gordon was a brave and gallant
soldier in the war and has been an bouest
and faithful citizen since, a good representa
tive of a very large class throughout the
Southern States. Lamar is another notable
representative of the same class—a class that
would quickly regain for tbe South its olden
wealth and prosperity if the reconstruction
were lifted and a chance given them’to work.
Gordon has been several years in tbe United
States Senate now, and Lamar served in the
last House, is a candidate for re-election,
and will doubtless be returned. Both have
done good service for the South by the pru
dent and Conservative course which they
have pursued; and the success which] they
have had in winning the friendship and con
fidence of their political adversaries in Cons
gross gives good reason to hope that their
appearance on the platform in Northern
cities will be followed by the same happy re
sults. Lamar was the recognized leader
•of the Southern members in the lost House,
exercising a wonderful power and control
over them, and if he is re-elected he will

that it btlie intention of many Grangers in

Captain B. J. Smith, wiio has been ap
pointed by Council to ascertain the number
that will probably join ill the move, says
that the suggestion meets with hearty en
dorsement from Grangers generally, and
that a large number have enrolled their
names. Whole Granges flora Calhoun

hoped that the brethreu from Clay and

WASHINGTON'S HEADQUARTERS IN NEWBURGH
Newburgh, N. J., Oct. 2.—The trustees
of Washington’s headquarters, in this city,
this morning, adopted a resolution ordering
that the property be closed to the public,

to reopen and provide for the protection of
the property. Thb is done because of the
lack of funds for the proper care of the

DEATH OF THE TROTTING MARE AMERICAN
Elmira, N. Y., Oct. 2.—The famous
trotting mare, American Girl, fell dead this
afternoon iu the first heat, a free for all race
on the Elmira Driving Park. She appeared
at the stand to be in the very best condition.
The horses were scored a number of times
before they got to work. The Girl at the
first turn was nicely ahead, but at this point
her driver noticed that she seemed to be giv
ing out, and let her head loose. She kept
staggering for an eighth of a mile, and at the
quarter pole fell and died instantly without a
struggle. She fell very easily, with her
shoulder against a fence. The incident ex
cited a great deal of sympathy, as the mare
was a great favorite, and had been the chief
attraction for the races to-day, The bund
played a funeral dirge as soon as her death
was made known. She was owned by Wm.
Lovell, of New York, and wns valued at
825,000, which sum had been offered for her
last week. She was thirteen years old. The
Elmira Driving Park Association propose,
should her body be left here, to erect a thou
sand dollar monument to the memory of
American Girl. There was no insurance on
her. Ben Mace offered $20,000 for her this
