The new constitution of Missouri, which was adopted by 76.000 majority, went into ffect on Tuesday last. Congress meets next Monday. The Geor gia representatives are said to he at their posts—except Mr. Stephens—who. it is pre sumed, is still too much indisposed to go on to Washington. A number of gentlemen from Minnesota passed through Atlanta a few days since en route to Dahlonegk. to investigate the gold mines of that section. The original hemlock log foundations of Long Wharf, at Boston, were unearthed a few days ago, and found to be as solid as when put down, 164 years ago : Arkansas has matured a measure that im poses a tax on her dogs. Tennessee has long had such a law. Georgia will soon he the only refuge in the Union for worthless and destructive curs. The Buena Vista Argus says that a horse, belonging to a gentleman near town, catches and eats all the chickens that comes within his reach. It is supposed that he once be longed to a Methodist preacher. Rev. A. J. Battle has commenced in the Christian Index a scries of articles on the human will. lie brings to the consideration of the subject a thorough scholarship, abroad, analytical mind and a flowing and perspicu ous style. At the session of the Virginia Methodist Conference the Bishop urged the question of infant baptism with a great degree of earn estness as one of the distinctive doctrines of the church, special attention being given to it in every report. The Chattanooga Times reports the pres ence in its city of Dr. Matthews, president of the Elberton Air-Line railway, who is ne gotiating for rails to complete his road. We hope the doctor has been successful in his crowning effort. It is probably not known to many that the legislature of Georgia, during the adminis tration of Gov. Towns, in 1845, passed a joint resolution endorsing the scheme of a Pacific railroad, upon the plan proposed by Asa Whitney, of New York, the said road to run from Lake Michigan to the Pacific ocean. Thus early did Georgia speak for a trans-con tinental road. The Columbus Enquirer urges the impor tance of a close collection of the poll tax, as it is kept in the country and devoted to the maintainance of the people's schools. It is paid over to the country school commission ers, who pay it out without any deduction for fees or salaries of officers to the support of the common schools of the country. The law authorizes the garnishment of wages for the poll tax, and there is no reason why it should not be closely collected. Forsyth and Barnesville are rivals in the production of semi-tropical fruits. The form er having claimed the production of pecans, the latter files a statement that she has both pecans and almonds in the course of success ful growth, as well as a banana sprout. The latter is ‘‘a large bush,” and has fruit on it, which would have matured with a few addi tional warm days. Proper protection, it is claimed, will cause it to yield ripe fruit next year. All this goes to show what middle Georgia is capable of.— At. Const. The Gwinnett Herald likes the resolution of the Baltimore dealers in fertilizers not to sell on time with the planters’ option of pay ing in cotton. It says: “We are not opposed to the use of fertilizers, but the point we de sire to make and impress upon the planters of Gwinnett is, that the purchase upon a cred it of large quantities is too much risk. Good fertilizers can be made at home from now un til planting time next spring at one-third the cost of commercial fertilizers; and if the man 'ufacturers determine to sell for cash only, in less than three years there will not be one tenth as much sold in Georgia as there was this j r ear.” Some negro “ Ku-Klux,” accompanied by a white man, went to the house of Rack Beall, col., in Irwinton, at 3 o’clock, one morning last week, and taking him by force, carried him to a bridge over a deep creek, and after gagging and tying him and fastening an iron wheel and a plow on his neck, threw him in to the creek, and left him to drown or die.— They had fired a pistol at him, but missed him, and he “played dead.” As lie was sink ing in the water he struck a log, by means of which he clambered out, and finally got to a house and was relieved of his shackles.— Nine of the negroes were arrested, but the negro refused to give the name of the white man, although lie recognized the whole party. Another negro was assasinated some 15 miles from the town of Wilkinson, on the Black shear Ferry road. He was shot at the corner of his cabin, with a load of buckshot, seven entering his body, and two his arm. He only lived a few hours. He was a State’s witness in the late insurrectionary trials, and this, it is supposed, accounts for his tragic end.— This is the third State's witness disposed of in this manner since the trials. His name was Jordan Chambers. "NO PROSPECT OF WAR.” The public prints for a week or two past have brought the news of a little “ speck of war*’ between the U. S. and Spain ; but from telegrams published and received by Wed nesday’s mail, it appears “ negotiations are proceeding favorably. The relations be tween the two countries may be regarded as excellent.” And further— Reports of Friday from Washington also say: “The trouble with Spain, which has been made out to be so great in Cuba circles, is at an end. On to-day, Secretary Fish re ceived from Minister Cushing, at Madrid, a dispatch to the effect that the Spanish Gov ernment was now ready to concede all our demands and had given such pledges that there remained no longer any doubt but Spain would agree to do all that was required of her.” It is also stated (says the Columbus Enquirer) that nothing else was demanded of Spain but a more faithful observance of the treaty of 1705 in its provisions regarding the right to search American vessels and to try and punish persons found on them accused of hostile operations against Spain. If this was the only demand that occasioned the late flurry, it is very strange that such great mis conceptions prevailed both in Spain and Great Britain—witness the letter of Don Carlos to King Alphonso. and the article of the London Times copied by us the other day—as well as in the United States. The strongpresump tion is raised that politicians were feeling the temper of the country, with a view to party operations; and not until the general senti ment was expressed emphatically in opposi tion to an} 7 harsh demands by the Adminis tration, was the public permitted to know that no such demands had been made. This presumption is strengthened bv the unques tioned show of preparations for impending trouble made by the Administration. If no other demand had been made on Spain than such as is now explained, there was certainly no need for the activity at the navy yards lately displayed and probably still going on. In connection, we re-produce some para graphs from the Enquirer of some days past,, and which arc alluded to alx>ve. By these the reader may gain, perhaps, a better knowl edge of the cause of this little “unpleasant ness” —which now seems so nearly adjusted. We say “adjusted*’—but there’s no telling what Grant and his third term aspirants may yet do; a “trump card” will no doubt be played at the right time, and the people should be informed as fully as possible as to the. “status of the situation.” The Spanish journals do not publish the “note” from the United States that has caus ed such a sensation and aroused such appre hensions of war. But they profess to have ascertained that it was “in regard to the trea ty of 171)5**—that is. that the United States threatens to abrogate the treaty of 1795, un less Spain complies with some demand which our Administration lias made. The demand may have been the recognition of the inde pendence of Cuba, its cession to the United States, or the abolition of slavery in the is land. We are not, definitely informed what it is, but as the Government of the United States has just the same right to make either one of these demands as the other two. one seems to be about as probable as the others. What,, then, is the treaty of 1795, thus threatened to be abandoned ? It, is, in gen eral terms, a treaty guaranteeing to Spain protection against filibusters from the United States. When it was made, Spain was pos sessed of territory within the present limits of the United States, and part of the treaty related to the boundary lines and their ob servance. Other articles forbade the citizens of either country to arm privateers against the other, prohibited the introduction of con traband goods when either might order their exclusion, and authorized either nation to search the vessels of the other, in a time of war (like that in Cuba) to sec that their pa pers were all regular. The abrogation of this treaty at this time, would leave Spain without any protection from armed expeditions fitted out in the United States to aid the Cubans, and such expeditions would of course be un dertaken. So the threatened abrogation is nothing more nor less than a menace to turn loose upon Spain the willing filibusters of the United States, and thus to wrest Cuba from her, unless she complies with some demand of the nature of which wc are not authorita tively informed. Wc copy an article of the London Times, which bristles with pointed suggestions and speculations touching this complication. The Times is uncertain whether President Grant is in “dead earnest” or whether he is only “talking to Buneomb”—trying to make party capital for himself or party. Wc of the Uni ted States understand him better, and have no doubt that his prime objects is party cap ital at home. But we cannot tell to what lengths he may be compelled to go in pur suit of this object. An inglorious backing down or signal defeat would be damaging to him and his party, rather than advantageous to either, and therefore he may feel impelled to persevere even to the embroilment of the two nations in war. In the event of war, the Times gives us to understand, the moral sen timent of England, if not of all Europe, would be enlisted on the side of Spain. It does not plainly promise Spain the assistance of oth er European powers in the conflict, but it ev idently aims to “strengthen the backbone” of the Alphonso Government b}' holding out the hope of foreign assistance. It, may also think that a timely European protest will have the effect of curbing the Administration at Washington, and thus preserving Cuba to Spain—a relation which Great Britain great ly desires to maintain Office of State Treasurer Vacant. It was noted last week or week before, that the Governor had required the State Treasurer, John Jones, Esq., to file anew bond—the former bond, for reasons assign ed, not being deemed suffieisnt. Ten days, were allowed for this purpose, by law, we believe. The time expired and the new bond was not forthcoming ; whereupon the Gov ernor declared the office vacant. The At lanta Constitution of the 30th ult„ contains the following, which is the latest we have on the subject: Tiik Treasury. —No further developments concerning the succession. Matters were exceedingly quiet about the Executive office yesterday, Concerning treasury matters there was nothing to be gleaned further than that Mr. J. A. Richardson and Mr. W. B. Lowe were named as aspirants for the vacant office. The Governor has given no intimation as to whom he will confer the trust upon, but it is certain that he will select the coming man within the next two or three daj T s. In the meantime Captain Jones is preparing to de liver up the office. He refuses to make any public statement at present. STATE NEWS ITEMS.

The Fort Valley Mirror remarks: A singular case of somnabualism occurred in this town on Friday night. Little Bobbie Wallis, the grandson of Mr. Bland Wallis, Sr., retired for the night feeling a little feverish. During his sleep he dreamed that someone was after him with a sharp stick, lie got up and fled from the house in his night clothes, and shaped his course directly to the swamp. lie ran far into the swamp, scratching himself with briars and wading through the water and getting completely wet, before he awoke. Asa matter of course, he was very much bewildered, and wandered i about for some time before he found the road and reached home. Murder will Outl On the 17th proximo John B. Rctty will be hung for murder committed in the year 1864. 11 is trial took place a fortnight since at St. Mary’s, and though defended by able counsel, the evidence was so clear, and the commission of the deed so well established by the confessions of the culprit, that his fate is decided beyond peradventnre. The facts in the case carry one back to the dark days of the late war, and is only one of hundreds that might be brought to light. Petty was a private in the Fourth Georgia Cavalry, and was with that command at Charleston, and deserted from it with a fellow soldier named Floyd Williams. Up to this time they had proven themseves to be brave and gallant men. Elbert Allen, also a private in the same command, and being in the same county (Camden) in which the} 7 had enlisted, was detailed to arrest them, and proceeding to their homes, captured them and carried them back. Floyd Williams soon after died, and his relatives attributed his death to his returning to camp. Petty soon after deserted the second time. In December, 1864, Allen was granted a fur lough to come home to attend to some private affairs, but hearing that threats had been made against him by Petty, he sent word to him that he was not coming after him. It seems, howevr, that his enemy had determined to revenge himself even unto death; and while Allen was driving along the road from JefFersonton to his farm with provisons for his familly, he was ambuhsed by Petty and James E. Williams, (a brother of Floyd) and killed by a shot from the former's gun, William’s gun missing fire. Poor Allen’s little son was the only witness to the bloody deed. In the then unsettled state of the country, the killing went unpun ished; but as order was restored, Petty, who in tho meantime had married the widow of his deceaed comrade, Floyd Williams, left the country. Yeas passed by and Allen's son had come to man’s estate, and determin ed. if possible, to bring his farther’s murderer (who had often boasted of his bloody work) to trial, and tracing him to Florida had him arrested on a requisition from the Governor of this State, and brought to trial. He was defended by good counsel, his wife selling the last of iicr estate to save him, but without avail. James E. Williams, who was also tried, was acquitted, as there was a doubt in his case, though wc understand that Pett}’ has made a statement, in which he said Wil liams was present, but did not fire at Allen, as his gun would not go ofF. Thus a bloody deed, committed in December, 1864. will be expiated eleven years after.— Sav. News. The Best Family Newspaper. —This is the claim which the publishers of the New and ork Observer make in behalf of their paper. It is a bold claim to make in our day, when there are so many papers; but an undeviating course in sending out, for fifty three years, a large, full, fresh, readable, and pure newspaper, which is unsurpassed, justi fies them in the claim. We can recommend the Observer. It has no hobbies; it is sound in doctrine, impartial and unbiased, reliable in its news, interesting and instruct ive in its various departments, and offers no clap-trap premiums or pictures.
