villbefive years old. It was ar inten
tion to celebrate this event by reducing
the price of subscription to ”.*1.50. but
upon h protest from all the -subscribers
t > whom we mentioned the matter—they
1 contending that £2 was as cheap as they
asked—we have decided to give them
. even more than this difference in an en
larged paper. About the third week in
October the Echo will appear as a 56-
column paper—the largest weekly in the
South, ami will contain more reading
matter than any four or fire ordinary
county papers. This enlargement will
entail a considerable additional cost
upon us, but we intend to swell our sub
i seription list to 3,000 copies weekly and
we want our friends to set to work and
help us do it. _ The people yf this and

OEHERTIMC THE ROOST.
Clear Case of Ilats Leaving a Sinking Skip.
The Colonel Stuiadt* on the Burning Deck.
For some weeks past the famous old
Bachelor’s Roost in Lexington, like its
inmates, has shown visible signs of de
cay. At night the occupants xvere arous
ed from their virtuous slumbers by a
cracking of timbers and a perceptible
settling of the building, and upon step
ping out on the piazza in the morning
they would find that it was parting from
the main house and gave hourly signs
of total dissolutiou. Like faithful mar
riers aboard a sinking ship did Col.
Morgan and Judge Gilliam endeavor to
save the home that had sheltered them
for nearly a century by sacrificing their
meagre stock of xvorldly goods. With
their confiding innocence they thought
it too heavily stocked with weighty fur
niture, and day by day continued to
throw overboard articles that even a
blind rag-picker would pass by in dis
gust, but in their eyes of inestimable
value. First xvent the Colonel’s box of
flint rocks, that he yet believes to be an
unexplored Golconda; then his Honor’s
chest of old winter clothes with a circus
picture of a nude woman pasted on it —
the only image of woman ever permitted
to invade this sanctuary; then all but
txvo of their chairs; their cords of emp
ty match boxes; and one by one the ac
cumulated nothingness of years—but
still the old Roost continued to give
way and its demizens shivered upon the
bare floor. The Colonel had pasted over
the door the gallant sentence —
“ />.V T fJll'ft If THE ROOST!"
advised that, to still further lighten
the load, Judge Gilham and him
self discard the use of socks and draw
ers and curtail their allowance of food.
With a heroism that was truly noble
and grand did these veterans on the al
tar of bachelorhood accept this last re
sort. But this sacrifice, too, was in
vain. The old shanty was still subject
to periodical convulsions, which increas
ed in number daily. At last the Judge
could stand the pressure no longer. Some
one told him that the Bible said “ Self
preservation xvas the first law of nature,”
and he determined to bid no longer de
fiance to this sacred edict. He rented a
room in Col. Mathews’ old office (a ver
itable relict of the flood,) and is there
located, solitary and alone. Among his
clothes he brought a fine stand of bed

the only bride I ever knexv and to it I
am wedded, for Aveal and woe, until

it shall be my Jiome and habitation and
its fall shall be my funeral pyre. When
Gabriel shall sound his last trump my
weather-beaten soul will arise from the
debris of this grand old temple of happy

We listened with awe to these noble
sentiments as they dropped like parched
peanuts from the lips of our aged friend,
and have our pencil ready sharped to pen
the closing scenes of las career.

One of the prettiest stores we ever en

the cleverest firms in Georgia with a
bran-new stock of goods. Everything is
as neat as a pin. The proprietors are in
timate friends to the Editor of this pa

as honest gentlemen, born merchants

Mr. Sock Pruitt, of the Athens Banner,

dust and are very rare. The strangest
thing is that if you allow one to fall its
curative properties vanish. Old hunters
say that as soon as they kili a deer they
can tell by its appearance if it contains

Mr. Pruitt was given to his father by an

Mr. George Latimer and family moved
this xveek to Atlanta, Mr. L. having se
cured a situation with Longley &?Rob
insou. The removal of this family is in
deed a loss to Lexington. They were
our near neighbors, and better ones we
never knew. The best xvishes of our
entire people attend them.
Mr. W. B. Lester is building a neat
little cottage on his father’s land and
will shortly occupy the same.
Mr. Thad Olive has moved to his
farm, Vacating the Robinson lot.
A Xew Corn.
We were shown last Friday the shuck
from an ear of corn, raised by Mr. Fiel
ding Dillard, the seed of xvhich he ob
tained in the mountains, which is a nexv
variety in this section. The shuck is an
imperial purple, and we learn is used by
the old ladies of North Georgia to dye
yarns and cloth. It is said to make a
beautiful and lasting shade of purple.
The ears from this com are of medium
size. Mr. D. is noted for his extensive
and prolific varieties of corn, he making
it his business to improve the seed by
crossing the best kinds.
Death of Mis* Hattie Arnold.
Just as xve xvere going to press the sad
and startling announcement reached us
of the demise of this pure and beautiful
young lady, daughter of our esteemed
friend, Mr. J. W. Arnold. Miss Hattie
xvas just budding into xvomanhood, and
was sincerely beloved by all xvlio knexv
her. ’Tis sad to be thus cut oft' in the
bloom of life, but ’tis best for the deceas
ed. A bright crown axvaits her in heav
ed. Our heart bleeds for the’hereaved
family. They should take comfort in
reflection that the belox'ed “is only gone
before.” We learn that her death xvas
caused by a cold contracted during her
recent tour to the mountains.
The Jail Committee.
This committee met last Monday to
act on the reception of the new jail and
we learn that it resulted in a “ bust up.”
The committee contended that the con
tractor was obligated to dig the well;
while Mr. McGinty thought it an outside
job—and on this rock they split. We
hope an amicable adjustment will yet
take place, as the building is certainly a
superior job of work. The committee
deserve credit for so manfully standing
up for what they conceive to be the
rights of the county. They are the class
of men to handle the public money-bags
and their names should be placed upon
a roll of honor. Litigation would con
sume enough money to dig a dozen wells.
Hon. Amos T. Ackerman.
This gentleman spent a day in Craw
ford recently and charmed the people
with his pliable tongue and instructive
conversation. He is rather gloomy about
the future of this section, and thinks for
the next fourteen years no perceptible
advance will be made in our prosperity.
Politically, we have no more use for Mr.
Ackerman than the devil has for holy
water, but are bound to accredit to him
an intellect of the first magnitude, and
acknowledge that he can see as deep into
a millstone as the man that picked it.
We think, however, he is now looking
at Georgia's future through partisan
glasses, manufactured especially for dis
The members of the Lexington circuit

are opposed to investing in this piece of
architectural dilapidation, prefering to
build anew house. This we think the
wisest plan, for a comfortable four-room
house could be built for about .*6OO,
which is only $l5O for each church to

Editor Oglethorpe Echo :

Capital will, I hope, be of interest to your
The House, during the past week, has pass
ed quite a number of Dills, but few of any gen

and some local.
Investigation and impeachment is the main
excitement now. The impeachment of Gold
smith is drawing to a close. He has tendered
his resignation to the Governor and abandon
ed his defense and given up the gbost. The
Governor, however, refused to accept his res
ignation and the impeachment will never
theless go on to a filial conviction. He (Gold
smith) has probably robbed the State, if re
ports be true, of more than sloo,ooo. Conip
troller-Geuerals of Georgia will, henceforth,
be honest or else step down and out. There
is no doubt of his guilt. The laborx of tne
Legislature in his case have not bean in vain.
$122,000 a year have been collected for the
past five years more than xvas necessary for
the legitimate expenses of the government,
and yet it has all always been absorbed. The
belief now is that it required that amount to
make up for the stealing. 1 learn the special
tax on whisky returned to the State by Gold
smith was, for the whole State, SIO,OOO, when
the amouut ought to have been near, if not
quite, $75,000. In this ease the State has lost
not less than $50,000 a year. So in the matter
of insurance taxes. The auionut returned, as
collected, was very far short of the truth. So
I might continue to enumerate.
The legislators do not exult over the fall of
Goldsmith, but feel sad that a prominent Sun
day-school man should thus turn out. Just
so it has ever been. Those who desire to play
the rascal often put on the garb of Christian
ity, to more eflectually deceive. 1 believe
Goldsmith was the head of all the Sunday
schools in the State. Let his late be a warn
ing to all future office-holders in Georgia.
The committee to investigate the Treasurer
have made a report of the evidence in his case
and accompanied it with a resolution impeach
ing him for high crimes and misdemeanors.
The evidence shows that Renfroe, the Treasu
rer, has been receiving interest ou deposits of
the State’s funds. He is convicted of receiv
ing himself between $5,000 and SIO,OOO. Per
haps he has received much more. The House
has been discussing the resolutions of im
peachment in his case all day to-day. The
vote has not been taken yet, but tne indica
tions are that they will pass by a very large
majority. Renfro has a great many personal
friends and influencial family connections;
i besides, the banks of Atlanta with which he
! has deposited the State’s iunds are legging for
! him. A great effort is being made to save
‘ him from impeachment. Some of the House
—who are mt to lie reiiedou—are making ex
traordinary efforts to save him. But he will
have to go. Renfro sent in his resignation
and proposed to pay the State back the inter
est collected by him on deposits, but this the
House will refuse. The Governor dare not ac
cept liis resignation. If he were it would not
The committee on the Principal Keeper of
the Penitentiary have reported. This com
mittee are divided. About half censure and
the other half exonerates. His ease will be
disposed of next Friday. No doubt he has
done wrong, but his wrong is not so serious as
that of others.
The committee to investigate the Agricultu
ral Bureau are hard at work. They are ma
king some progress. Rumor has it that they
have so far discovered many irreguU.ri ies and
are likely to dig up others more damaging.
The whole concern is no doubt full of corrup
tion, and .if the vote were to be taken over
again would be abolished without any oppo
sition of consequence. The Commissioner, it
is reported, is about to resign in order to save
himself. “ Leaf by leaf the roses fall.”

ated by your friends and the Assembly gener
ally. It sounded a great deal better, and
looked more decent and manly, to encourage
a body of men engaged in a great undertaking
which, if successful, will benefit the present
and future generations, than to be writing of
them as if they were a set of rascals, knaves
and ignoramuses—like, for instance, one of
your correspondents, who wrote some time
s nee that the people of his neighborhood were
training hounds to run the Legislature out of
Atlanta next winter. He ought to run for an
office in his county again, to see how many
friends he has. The Legislature, in these in
vestigations and impeachments, have to fight
the blood, the flesh, and the devil, and need
the support of an honest and intelligent con
stituency. Let me say again that your edito
rial on the Legislature contributed at least
twenty votes in favor of impeaching Renfro.
With such able endorsement the Legislature
will yet clean out the Augean stables. M.

The Fountain camp-meeting was a suc
