Some contend that the vote of Georgia

It is estimated that the emmigrants coining
to this country this year will bring $35,000,-
000 in specie, and the average value of each
person in adding to the productive resources
of the country is SO4O. Yet, there are lots
of people in Georgia who are opposed to
using any means whatever toaid us in securing
our share of this wealth.
The Augusta Chronicle § Constitutionalist
suggests the lion. Pope Barrow, of Clarke

run against Speer in the next race. The
suggestion is a good one. But our opinion
is that Judge Erwin can make the best race,
provided be would consent to be a candidate,
which is hardly probable.
On Friday night a fire broke out in Pensa
cola, Fla., which burned for eight hours, de
stroying nine-tenths of the city’, amounting
in dollars to three-quarters of a million ; the
custom house, post office, the main hotel, both

stores were consumed. Hundreds and hun
dreds of people are homeless, and many had
all they had on earth burned up. This is in
deed a great calamity to Pensacola.
There have been various statements in
regard to the health of Senator Lamar, some
representing him as being in very delicate
health. The Oxford (Miss.) Falcon, published
at his home, says Senator Lamar’s health
lias been improving since the close of the

poor, and the Senator may take her to some
tropical climate, which may prevent his being
present at the opening of the Senate. But

The Electoral vote of the State of Georgia

An Englishman who lately came over to
this country to examine into our modes of
agriculture said, on his return home, that in
twenty-five years lienee English fanners need
not fear American competition in the produc
tion of wheat, as bv that time the fertile wheat
lands of the West would be exhausted, and
the cost of production would necessarily in
crease. It was his openion, however, that
the American people would be the greatest
nation in the world.
A Washington correspondent, in describ
ing the members of the United States Senate
on their first assembling, gives us the follow
ing on Joe Brown and Ben Hill: Senator Hill,
of Georgia, patted the head of his little son
as he answered the questions of his friends,
and near him sat stiffly in his chair the
strangest figure in the room—Senator Joe
Brown, the picture of an old-time Methodist
elder—his straight lips cleanly shaven, a long
white beard falling on bis breast, and his hands
benevolently embracing each other.
Pledger, the leader of the Republican par
ty iu this District, lias been on to Washing
ton, trying to get Hayes to make some changes
in the postal appointments for this District.
Among others, the removal of Dr. Orr from
the Athens post-office, which, it is said, he
wants for himself. It is not probable that
he will do anything while Hayes remains in
office, but after that gentleman steps down
and out 3-011 may expect to hear of 9ome
sweeping changes. Pledger & Cos. must be
rewarded, and post-offices are good things to
pay debts with and keep alive the Republi
can party in Georgia.
The rise in prices is not over. Real estate,
the best railroad stocks, many commodities
will go still higher. Our accumulated and
surplus capital is not exhausted 3-et. Best
of all, there is as }-et to be seen ver3' little
extension of credits. But it lias begun. In
good times prepare for bad. It is the duty
of railroad corporations to gather a surplus
rather than water stock and pay exaggerated
dividends. Banks should strengthen them
selves. and keen a restraining hand on bor
rowers. Business men must keep the brakes
down on overtrading, and manufacturers
should especially beware of over production.
Above all, ever}- one should shun debt like
the devil. The signs of the times portend
an outburst of speculation as resistless as the
current of the Niagara. Now is the time,
if ever to check it, before it sweeps us into
panic again.— Chicago Tribune.
Washington, December s. —Some years
ago the State of Georgia guaranteed the
bonds of the Brunswick and Albany Rail
road of the state to the extent of $3,000,000.
It has repudiated its guarantee and the bonds
are now almost worthless. The interest is
unpaid and the pa3*ment of the principal is
not even hinted at. Ex Chief Justice Loch
rane, of Georgia, with other prominent law
yers, is here to endeavor to induce congress
to take some action by which the state of
Georgia shall be compelled to make good its
repudiated warranty. The eleventh amend
ment to the constitution forbids the suing of
a state by an individual. This is thegreatob
struetion in the path of holders of the worth
less guarantee bonds. The state of Georgia
is entirely able to make good to them the
money the}- have sunk in them, but she can
not be reached. In this respect she is supe
rior to the United States. The latter can, in
certain cases, be reached through the court
of claims, blit for the State of Georgia there
is no court of claims, and a private individual
who has placed his money in securities upon
her repudiated guarantee stands small chance
of recovering it. The attorne}-s for the bond
holders propose to secure the repeal of the
11th amendment. They say that only in
that way can the}- reach the state, and that
they propose to unite with them in the effort
all persons who have suffered by the repudi
ation of either state debts or securities bear
ing state guarantees. They will, they claim,
bring such a force to bear upon congress that
it will be compelled to move in the matter.
They expect a delegation from Frankfort on
the Main, representing the holders of $1,500,-
000 of the Brunswick and Albany bonds, who
have written to Sir Edward Thornton, the
British minister here, about their repudiation.
They addressed him, they stated, because
they had purchased the bonds upon the rep
resentations of Englishmen, and because the
transaction was authenticated by a document
bearing the official seal of the English con
sulate. They ask Sir Edward to bring the
matter to the attention of the American gov

before the matter is disposed of, as the par

Signs in the Heavens.
Under this head the Athens Banner, in the
following language, describes an occurrence
that was also witnessed by a goodly number
of our citizens last Thursday evening:
“ ff’he people of Athens who were on the
streets just before dark yesterday afternoon
witnessed a strange sight, and one which
caused much conjecture for a time. In the
Western sky, at something less than forty
five degrees above the horizon, a very brilliant
meteor appeared, and made its way upward
and onward. Its direction was towards the
north, and its course was not direct and steady,
but it seemed to pause for an instant, then
take another leap, then another pause, and so
on. In the meanwhile, it was making pro
gress as it it had been sent for in a hurry
and hud to go. Its path was marked by a
long trail of white vapor, which was caused
by the air, which it heated in its rapid flight,
becoming condensed. In twoortliree minutes,
or perhaps less time, it was out of sight, but
its course could be plainly traced by its
vapor-trail. This gradually scattered until
it assumed the shape of light fleecy clouds,
and then it too disappeared. No one that
we talked with had ever seen anything like

so badly that lie is not expected to survive.
At the burial of Mrs. Dr. Williams last

Macon has had an epidemic of serious fights
lately. On Tuesday night last George W.
Garner and John McDonald became involved
in a quarrel, when Garner drew a pistol and
fired five shots at McDonald, who fell and
died in an hour. Both men were employes
of mill number two in that city, and had been
A disastrous fire occurred in Jonesboro last
Thursday night. Three store houses, one oc
cupied as a saloon by John Starr, another oc
cupied by Mr. J. E. Lites, and a third occu
pied by Mr. L. J. Camp as a confectionary
and family grocer}-, were destroyed with most
of their stocks of goods, 'fhore was no insu
ranee on either the houses or the goods, and
the losses are, in consequence, very heavy.
The Summerville Gazette reports that on
the 24th ult. J. I. Brewton, who lives some
six miles south of that town, went to the cot
ton field with several of his children. His
daughter Lily, about nine years old, went to
the fire to warm her fingers, when her dress
caught fire and she was terribly burned. Her
fkther began tearing off her dress, but in her
fright she broke away from him and ran some
thirty yards before he could catch her. He
finally extinguished the flames by throwing
her down and rolling her over on the ground.
Medical attention was called in, and, at last
accounts, she was improving, though she
will be confined to the bed for a month or
Lucy I lolly-, an old colored weman living
on the farm of Mr. T. O. Burruss, was at

She was seen on the 7th about 10 o’clock
A. M. going to her cabin with a torch in her
hand, and on the morning of the Bth she was
found dead about 15 paces from her cabin.
Fragments of burnt clothing were found all
about from the door to the spot where she
succumbed to the flames. Every stitch of
clothing was burnt off except her shoes and
stockings, and the skin was burnt off her
body except on her feet and face. A Coro
ner’s inquest was held over her body, which
brought in a verdict of death by accidental
burning. —Franklin Cos. Register.
Both Athens and Milledgevillc have, dur
ing the past week, made narrow escapes from
extensive conflagrations, and singularly
enough both occurred on Saturday night last.
In Athens smoke was seen by a colored night
watchmen issuing from the office of Reaves,
Nicholson & Co.’s warehouse, and an inves
tigation revealed a smouldering fire under
the floor, caused, it is supposed, by coals fal
ling through from the grate. In Mi!ledge
ville the night watchman discovered smoke
emerging from the telegraph office, and it
was soon seen that the floor was burning.
Prompt action in both cases suppressed the
flames, but had the fires not been discovered
at the time great disasters would have result
Atlanta Constitution : “ Yesterday even
ing about 5 o’clock, a policeman’s attention
was called to a handsomely dressed lady who
was passing down Whitehall street in an in
toxicated condition. Going up to her, the
officer ascertained that she was almost be
yond navigation. Calling a hack, he, though
greatly against her will, put her in it and
started to the calaboose, but on the way the
woman begged so hard to be taken home that
the officer consented and drove her to her
house, where she was taken in charge by her
family. On her way home she expressed
great indignation at the treatment she had
received, and threatened to sue the city. She
said that she was a banker’s wife in an ad
joining city, and that she would have redress
for the gross insult heaped upon her. She
denied being drunk, though she said she had
been drinking champagne. A gentleman
who lives in Atlanta and is acquainted with
the lady, says that her story about being a
banker’s wife is true. lie also says that her
family moves in the best circles of society in
the town from which she came to A’lanta,
but adds that this is not the first time she
has been taken home in an intoxicated con
dition. She was neatly and handsomely
attired in a beautiful silk, and her hands
were loaded with rings. Her conversation
indicated that she was, or had been a lady
of culture and refinement. Here’s a good
lesson for the temperance people.’’
A gang of Gypsies have been encamping
in Webster county, and the Amcncus Sum
ter Republican tells of a mean trick one of
them played upon a citizen of the county as
follows : “ Last week a gang of Gypsies pas
sed through Webster. They camped a while
near Jack Hawkins’, who is one of the farms
of Col. S. 11. Hawkins, of this city. During
the war Jack was wounded in the head, which
produces, at times, calenture of the brain,
rendering him nearly unconscious. The
Gypsy noticing his weakness, plied him with
liquor and while under the influence of it got
him to trade a very fine mule for au old di
lapidated, broken-down speckled horse. They
immediately broke camps agd came to Amer
ions, Saturday. Col. Hawkins got wind of
the transaction, took Sheriff Mize and started
for the camp to get his mule. The man hav
ing it, apprised of their coming, mounted the
mule and left. Col. Hawkins and Sheriff Joe
followed on to Friendship, but finding that
the fellow had given them the dodge, return
ed and arrested one Jack Herrington, of the
gang, who had possession of the mule for
awhile. Judge Pilsburv informed the said
Jack that lie must produce the muld or go to
jail. lie certioraried, gave bond in the sum
of one hundred and ten dollars, his friends
depositing tiiat sum in the hands of H. D.
Watts, who stood his bond, and he was re
leased. Sunday morning the entire gang
had disappeared. We believe the money was
turned over to Col. Hawkins to reimburse him
for his loss.”
