Independent Order of Good Templar?, 1
a Noble Work Begun.'
It was our pleasure by invitation, to
look in for a few momenta on Friday
night, at a social entertainment given by
tbo (.boro Association, at their elegant
new ball, in the Powell building.
It was a gathering unique in itself, and
differing widely from those scenes of re-
veby, where, the motto is, “on with the
dance,” and ** wine and wassail/’ and the
deliriun of music, and the blandishments
of the fashionable ball room, too often in
spire tastes and habiis, which end in har
vest of shame ami humiliation.
On this occasion a goodly band of
ladies and gentlemen were assembled,
representing life in all its stages, most of
whom wore the cliasto regalia of the order.
It waa ono of those rational, pleasant, so
cial reunions, which do 30 much to ele
vate and refine the tone of society.
Soon tho barriers of reserve, melted
away, and broken into knots, or pro
menading the spsciotut apartment, the
hours passed in sprightly conversation
enlivened by spicy repartee and joyous
laughter. ... , .
Then followed the display of tempting
and delicions refreshments—ice cream,

Already the good it haswronght inoui

that under its auspices a great social and

One pleasing feature in this order is
the introduction of ladies as members.
Already a godly number are enrolled up

Advice to Young Hen.
There is no harm in a certain moder
ate and occasional amount of innocent
pleasure. But a young man who has his
own way to carve in life, can spare neith
er tbo tune, the strength, nor the expense
of much social pleasure. In the country,
where the style of living is simple, one
can get all the gsyety he needs without
spending much money. We recommend
to every young man who is starting in
life the most rigorous economy in expen
ses; in clothes food nod equipment—
Young men usually do not take their
measures of economy from what they can
actually endure, but from what society
around them is accustomed to demand.
By far the greater number of young
men have only their hands, their good
character, and their mother-wit for cap
ital. (Success will require ingenuity, in
dustry, and rigorous economy. The
practice of these q oolite* for ten years
ought to put a sensible man on good fonn-
dation, on which ha can build an endu
ring prosperity. But if a young mac.
must have three orfoar * outings” a year;
f he must join various societies which
taxJuffcalemlav rasootoes severely; if ha
must be counted upon for parties, balls,
suppers, or drinking bouts; if he must
pay for billiards and prime cigars, lie
will find uphill work to savo enough to
make liis mid-life and old age com
fortable. Yonth may be the time ior
pleasure, but that is 110 reason why a man
should squander the best part of his life.
Youth is good for pleasure; but is the
veiy tirao too, for learning, for work, or
self-discipline. And pleasure itself does
not heed to be peculiarly expensive. Do
not be ashamed to economise, no m&tter
what the girls think, nor wliat the boys
think. Build yourself up in intelli
gence and sound morals. Acquiring an
honorable competence, yon will have a
chance to lend money to the fools that
ridicule vour rigid economy and your
scrupulous employment of them.
_ Resolved that except the most impera
tive necessities required for health aud
strength, yon will not spend a penny,
either, for charity or luxury, except out
of yonr income. Earn your money be
fore you spend it. Tho effect of this
will bo to curb all expensive impulses,
and reduce your actions in the spending
of money, to a conscientious rule. We
believe that sixteen men out of every
twenty that begin life poor, remain so to
the end of life; but that every one of these
sixteen earned enough; if it had been
saved, to have made himself entirely in
Foolish spending is tho father of pov
erty. Do not be ashamed of hard work.
Work for the best salaries or wages you
can get, but work for half price rather
than l>e idle. Bo yonr own master, and
do not let society or fashion swallow up
your individuality—hat, eoat, and boots.
Do not eat up and wear out all that
you earn. Compell your selfish body to
spare something for profits saved. Be
stingy to your own appetite, but merciful
to others’ necessities. Help others, aud
ask no help for yourself. See that yon
are proud. Let your pride be of the
right kind. Be too proud to be lazy;
too proud to give up without conquering
every difficulty; too proud to .wear a coat
that you cannot afford to bay; too proud
to be in company that yon cannot keep up
with its expenses; too proud to lie, or
steal, or cheat; too proud to lie stingy.—

How to keep Coon.—Tho Herald of
j Health for July gives some directions
old I upon thtv pertinent problem of how to
keep cool. We quote :
1. The diet should be composed large
ly or entirely of fruits, fresh vegetables,
an<l wheat-meal bread, and other prepa
rations of wheat and oatmeal Cornmeol
bread and cakes should be seldom eaten,
if at all, during hot weather. Avoid all
stimulating or heating articles of food,
as meats, especially fat or salted meats,
butter, gravies, and greasy food of nil
kinds, sugar, mustard, spices, etc. Do
not eat hot food, and especially avoid eat-
*'* g more than the system requires.
2. Drink nothing but water, and that
only a small quantity at a time. OJ
course this precludes the use of tea, cof
fee and all tho alcoholio drinks.
3 The clothing should bo light, light
colored, loose fitting, and changed often.
4. The entire body should be bathed
every day, either in the morning or at
night. Fanners and others who perspire
freely or exposed to dust should bathe
at night They will rest and sleep bet
ter for doing so. Tho wliolo body can
be effectually cooled in a short time by
hodling pieces of ico in tho hands, or let
ting a stream of cold water run npon the
lists or ankles.

A Lofty Feeling of Hope.
The abundant wheat crop which basal-
ready, for the most part, yielded to the
sickle, throughout East Tennessee, to
gether with the immense breadth of oats
and corn, which promises renumerative
returns, have inspired a degree of hope
of a prosperous future, that cannot fail to
lift our suffering section from her former
despondent condition, and to push her
forward in her renewed attempts to repair
her broken fortunes. A few weeks will
develop a wido spread cheerfulness among
all classes, but no class will feel it so
sensibly and so gratefully ns the farmers.
Their lot, at best is a hard ono—ono of
incessant toil and ceaseless anxiety; and,
if they fail at any time, in their crops,
they have nothing to fall bark upon.—
For ono year they must livo strictly,
within their income.
The present prosperous year will ena
ble them to pay their taxes, to meet many
of their outstanding obligations, to open
up fresh land, and to repair their old
fences, to build new ones, and po, their
premises in good erder. Not only this,
but they will have some surplus funds
with which to replenish their scanty sup
ply of stock. We should not be aston
ished if many of them went to Kentucky,
er to Virginia to purchase thorough bred
cattle, horses and sheep. We know of
some few who have already done this.
Two or three, from -this county, have
done so, and several from Hawkins coun-
5* crops will contribute vastly to
stimulate the fanners to improve their

Eaai Tennessee is considerably behind in
this regard, so much so, indeed, that ahe
should^ regret it, and exert herself to do
better in the future.
After all, we now look forward to a
brighter future, at least, for the ea
year. ,The farmers need not be ala
about low prices for their products.—
Everything in the shape of breadttofib,
as we confidently believe, will bear remu

there won’t be any pay about it.”
The kind-hearled Commodore was not
io man to refuse a favor; and though he
liked not tho bothor of taking tho wo
man on board, yet he could not refuse.
When he told her he would do as she re
quested, she thanked him with tears in
Some of the men were sent on the
wharf to bring the body on board. A
long buffalo robe was lilted off by the
man who drovo the wagon, and beneath
lay a neat black coffin. Some words were
passed by the men, as they were putting
the coffin on board, which went to show
very plainly that the affair did not exact
ly suit them. It may have been from
prejudice on their part; but then seamen
should be allowed a little prejudice once
in a while, when we consider tho stern
realities they have to encounter.
“Hush, my good men,” said tho Com
modore, as lie heard their murmurs.
Suppose you were to die away from
home—would yon not wish that your rp-
moirs might bo carried to your parents ?
Come, hurry now.”
Tho men said no more; and ere long the
coffin was placed in the hold, and the
woman was token into the cabin. In less
than half an hour tho schooner was
cleared from the wharf and standing ont
from the bay.
Tho wind was light from the eastward,
bnt Tucker had no fear of the frigate,
now that he was out of the bay.
In tho evening the lady passenger came
on deck, aud the Commodore assured
her that ho would be able to land early
the next morning. Sho expressed her
gratitude and satisfaction, aud remarked
that before she retired she wonld like to
look and see that her husband'* corpse
was safe. This request waa of coarse
readily granted,and one of,them was lifted
off the hatch that sho might go down into

old sailor, who was at tho wheel, “she

Tucker smiled at the loan’s quaint
earnestness, aud, without further remark,
be went down to the cabin.
When the woman came up from
the hold, she looked about the deck of
the schooner a few moments, and then
went aft There was something in her
countenance that puzzlod Carter. Ho
had been one of those who objected to the
coflin’s being brought on board, and
hence wus not predisposed to look favor
ably upon its owner. The woman’s eye
ran over the schooner’s deck with a
strange quickness, and Carter eyed her
veiy sharply. She went to tho taff-rail
and looked over at the stem boat, and
then she came and stood by the pinnacle
“Look ont, or you’ll jibe the boom,”
uttered the woman.
Carter started and found that the main
il was shivering. Ho gave the helm
couple of spoken apart and then cast his
eye* again on the woman, whose features
e lighted by the pinnacle-lamp.
Thank’ee, ma’am,” said Dan. “Ha,
bold on—why, bless my soul there’s a big
spider right on your hair. Not—not
there. Here—I’ll—ugh !”
This last ejeeulation Dan made os he
seemed to pull something from the wo
man's hair, which he threw npon the
deck, with the “ugh 1” above mentioned.
Shortly after, the passenger went be
low, and ere long Tucker came on deck.
“Commodoro,” said Carter, with a re
markable degree of eagerness in bis man
ner, “is the ’oman tanted *

been pinned up after breaking of the

“Don’ttouch it, bnt run end get a
lantern,” replied Tucker.
Carter sprang to obey, and when ho
hail returned a number of the men had
gathered around the spot. The hatch
was raised, and the Commodore carefully
picked up the ball of twine and found
that it was made fast to something below.
He descended to the hole, aqd there he
found the twine ran beneath the lid of
the coffin. Ho had no doubt in his mind
now that there was mischief boxed below;
and ho sent Carter for something that
might answer for a screw-driver. The
man soon returned with a short knife,
and the Commodore set to work. He
worked very carefully, however, nt the
same time keeping a bright lookout for
At length the screws were out, and the
lid carefully lifted from its place.
“Great Heavens!” burst from the lips
“ I know’d it!” uttered Dau.
The two men stood for a moment and
gazed into the coffin. There was no dead
man there, but in place thereof there were
materials for the death of a score. The
coffin was filled with gunpowder aud
pitchwood! I'pon alight framework in
the centre were arrainged four pistols
cocked, and the string entering tho coffin
from without communicated with the
trigger of each.
The first movement of the Commodore
was to call for water, and when it was
brought he dashed three or four buckets
full into the infernal contrivance, and
then he breathed morel freely.
“No, no,” he uttered, us ho leaped
from the hold. “ No, no—my men. Do
nothing rashly. Let me go into the cab-
flrst Yon may follow me.”
Commodore Tucker strode into the
cabin, walked up to tho bank where his
passenger lay, and grasping hold of the
female dress, ho dragged its wearer out
upon the floor. There was a sharp resis
tance, and the passenger drew a pistol,
but it was quickly knocked away—the
gown was tom off, and the man came
forth from the remnants of the calico and
The fellow was assured that his whole
plot had been discovered; and at length
ho owned that it had been his plan to
turn out in the course of night and get
hold of the ball of twine, wluch ho had
lift in a convenient place; he then intend*
ed to have gone aloft, carefully onwind-
ing the string as he went along; then to
have got into the boat, cut the falls, and,
as the boat fell into tho water, he wonld
hnve pulled smartly upon tbe twine.
“ And I think you know,” ho contin-
ed, with a wicked look, “wliat would
have followed. I shouldn't havo been
noticed in tlio fuss—Fd have got out of
the way with the boat, and you’d have
been in tho next world in short order.—
And all that I can say is, that I’m sorry
didn't do it”
It was with mnch difficulty that the

A Letter from tbe Grand Worthy
Columbus, Ga., June 1st, 1870.
To the Lodge Deputies (tf the L 0. (tf Ct.
T. t In the State ctf Georgia :
Brothers.—I congratulate each of you
for the valuable services rendered our
cause by your hearty endeavors to ex
tend onr order throughout our State. In
making my appointments of Lodge Dep
uties I have been governed by the ex
press wishes of the Lodges. It gives
me great pleasure in saying, that most
of you have been prompt in your returns.
My correspondence with you baa been
pleasant—yet there arc a few of you who
have neglected to send in yonr returns
promptly. I trust I need only call your
attention to the fact and its great import
tance, to prevent its occurrence in the
future. It is very desirable that Lodge
Deputies should seud in their reports
immediately after the installation of the
officers: onr order is rapidly increasing
in the State—already wo number over
three thousand members—still, to extend
the order it requires time and money and
personal sacrifices from the Lodge Dep
uties to advance our noble order. Much
yery much is expected of each of you, and
I know I do not call in vain whon I call
on you for help. And now I want each
of you to get up a new lodge in your re
spective counties, and each of you shall
liavo a special commission to institute
the same. So get them up by securing
a petition and the charter fee of $10, and
send both to our much beloved Grand
Lodge Secretary, brother J. K. Thrower,
at Atlanta, Georgia, and he will send you
the charter, books, Ac., to organize'the
Lodges. Let mo urge each and every
ono of you to renewed exertion in the
great work. Onr numbers may and will
be increased it yon will only work Show
to tho ministers of God that their inter
ests, as well os humanity, demands sacri
fices, on their part, to aid us in warning
against this great evil; show to mothers,
dear mothers and fathers, that dark and
fear ml danger lurks in the pathway of
our young men and women wherever
they go. Keep the facts before them and
the day is not far distant when thoy will
accept tho truths of our order. Go in a
leek spirit to these dear parents who
have children to save, to give us their
aid—tell them to plead for their soul’s
44 best effort to save tho wife’s heart from
its bursting agony at the loss of the once
kind and noblo man to whom she prom
ised her young and noble heart’s love.
He never spoke an unkind word to her
when sober, und no man ever loved his
children better, when free from the in
fluence of intoxicating drinks. It is to
stop the ravage* of this monster that we
apjieal to yon. Shall rum rule and ruin?
Not ono honest word ran l>e said in favor
of this unmitigated evil All other call
ings have just and honorable founda
tions, bnt there is the calling of Death—
Behind the gilded screens which hide it
from the publio gaze, it deals out Ruin
and Disgrace to all who enter within its
shrine, finding its refuge in a licensed bar
room. It dogs the stops of the husband,
until he falls into its hungry jaws; it pa
tiently tracks the steps of the unthinking
youth until, at last, he becomes a victim
to its seductive snares. It has hurled de
fiance at the God of Heaves, and with
impunity in our “fair and lovely State of
Georgia,” has insulted a Christian peo
ple, by disregarding the sanctity of the
holy Sabbath, in its destructive
filling our streets with drunkards and
brawlers. You know this is so, and the
power it exerts is apparent that the
public servants allow it to pursue its bit
ter end without molestation, filling the
judiciary with its apologists, as well
the grave-yard with its victims."
Tell them in tho most eloquent lan
guage yon can command, that wo appeal
to them for their “aid for the little waifs
of the street, dying in heart for a moth-
•*8 love. Wo plead for tho boys and
girls—homeless aud friendless, whose
fathers might bo saved. We plead for
the old mother whose only son ii now
the staff whieh she fondly 'hoped to lean
upon in her declining voars. Wo plead
for the wife who still hopes, at times,
that the dreams of her girlhood may yet
be realized—that broken family altar re
built—that man reclaimed. Wo beg you,
in Heaven’s name, to work with us to
save and redeem him. A crown is just
above thy brow, reach out, and down if
need bo, and save thy ruined brother,
and the angels will crown thee with a
wreath of immortal bloom.”
Sav to them that there are Good Temp-
Zi.un T Lodges started all over tho State,
and have accomplished a great deal of
good—have lifted tin many that have
sunken low in the scale of human degra
dation, and returned them to society.
“Many a family has been reunited. The
rum sellers have already begun to feel our
strength, and have set their mighty en
gines to work to nndermino our cause,
and lower us to the ground. They have
already started the ciy that we are the
decoys of some political party, or for
some sectarian purposes. It ia their hope
to divide onr ranks—the ranks of honest
men and women of temperanco and vir
tue—by sowing discord and creating
dissensions among us."

Atlanta, July 7, 1870.
To Utc Provisional Legislature:
The same reasons which made it ad
visable to enter npon legislation at the
time of voor last adjournment still exist;
but, within the last few days tho House
of Representatives of the United States
Congress has adopted a bill for the admis
sion of Georgia, br tho teem* of which
yonr organization is expressly recognized
as “ legal,” and yonr legislative action,
m adopting the conditions required by
the sever.il reconstruction acts, ia ap
proved. This bill, it is believed, will
be concurred in by the Senate within a
few days. Ponding such action, by the
Senate, I would respectfully recommend
that yon take a recess until the 13th in
stant, or occupy the interim in the con
sideration of such resolutions as may he

Mr. Chandle desired to know if it was
in order to introduce a bill aud proceed
with general legislation.
The chair decided ths motion to adjourn
order, when Mr. Chandler proceeded
to oppose tlio motion to adjonm till Mon
day- -saying if there was any definite ob
ject in view to be gained, it might be well
enongh, to meet again on Monday. If
not, and the only objeet of this'recess
was simply that Senators might bo paid,
then ho had advocated their going home
until they could proceed with necessary
Mr. Speer thought it might be doing
God and tho country service for the
Senate to stay here ana introduce a meas-
b in order to havo Georgia represented
Congress, and desire the members to
bo selected from this Senate.
Mr. Wootten advocated the right and
power of the Legislature to proceed with
general legislation, which was badly need
ed; bnt if a majority of the Senate
thought they could not legislate, then
their plain duty to tlio country was • to
adjourn until the finul settlement of tho
Georgia question by Congress, and to
stop the expense to the people of Georgia
who were growing indignant at the action
of tho General Assembly in meeting and
squandering the publio money without
doing any good whatever.
Mr Campbell insisted that tho cry of
the objections of the tax payers be hush
ed; that of his own knowledge from the
months of tax payers, he knew that action
of the Assembly was endorsed by the
tax payers of his district.
Mr. Harris proceeded to state that
tiou and prudence should mark the course
of the Assembly, and for that purpose
a recess was necessary. He was tired of
hearing the course adopted by hi* party
denonnoed on the part of certain mem
bers of this body, as if on them alone
depended tho weal of tho dear people; he
advocated an adjournment, but was in
fever, in either event, whether the fate
of the Georgia bill-was settled at this
session of Congress or not, of proceeding
with general legislation.
Mr. Speer offered an amendment that

Prophecy of J. C. Calhoun now being
Politicians have sometimes boldly pre
dicted that a certain course of action on
the part of government. The following
a prediction made in 1819 :
“If it” (emancipation) “should ever
bo effected, it will bo through tho agency
of the Federal government, controlled by
the dominant power of the Northern
States of the Confederacy against Ihe re
sistance and struggle of the Southorn.—
It can then only be effected by the pros
tration of the white race; and that wonld
necessarily engender the bitterest feeling
of hostility between them and tho North.
Bnt tho reverse would be tho caso be
tween tho blacks of, tho South and the
people of the North. Owing their eman
cipation to them, they would regard them
as friends, guardians and patrons, and
center accordingly all their sympathy in
them. Tho peoplo of tho North would
not fail to reciprocate and to favor them
instead of tho whites; under the influ
ence of such feelings, and impelled by
fanaticism and love of power, they would
not stop at emancipation. Another step
would be taken to raise them to ft politi
cal and social equality with their former
owners, by giving them the right of vo
ting and holding public offices under the
We see the first step of it in the bill al
luded to-—to invest the free blacks and
the slaves with tho right to vote on the
question of emancipation in the District
of Columbia. But when once raised to
equality they would become the last
political associates of tho North, acting
and voting with them on all questions,
and by this political uuion between them,
holding the white race at tho Sonth in
complete subjection. Tho blacks and
tho whites tliut might unite with them,
would become the principal recipients oi
tho Federal offices and patronage, ami
would, in consequoood; be raised above
tho whites o f the South in the social scale.
Wo Would, in a word, chango conditions
with them—a degradation greater than
has vet fallen to tho lot of a freo and en
lightened peoplo, .and ono from which we
wonld not escape, should emancipation
take placo (wluch it certainly will if not
prevented) bnt by fleeing the homes of
ourselves and our ancestors, and by aban
doning our country to our former slaves,
to become tho permanent abode of disor
der, anarchy, poverty, misery and wretch
edness.—John C. Calhoun.

Sin—In answer to your inquiry con
cerning the oolleetion of the liquor tax, I
have to direct you. to prooeed to collect

erence to the tax act of 1889, yon will are
that returns are required for “each year,’’

until it ia superseded or repealed. If
there should be any doubt os to the act
being perpetual, that donbt is removed
by the joint reeoliition of the General
Assembly, May4th, 1870, which contin
ues the whole act in force nntil otherwise
ordered by the same authority. It is not
