*©- John M. Harwell, tax collector of
Atlanta, was enjoined by Judge J. M.
Greene, of the Flint Circuit, from col
lecting the tax of 20 per cent, on liquors
from members of the Atlanta Liquor
Dealer’s Association upon a petition from
tlmt body. A case is pending in the
Savannah Court which will decide the
between these potentates settled by the
Viceroy’s surrender of bis steel-dad war
steamers and the redaction of his army,
than it was reopened by the discovery
that Ismail Pacha has been raising secret
loans in Europe and enlisting many dis
tinguished officers for liis military ser
vice, which is lieing put into a state of
full efficiency. This second departure of
the Khedive is met in a prompt manner
by tho Saltan. Ho has ordered a grand
concentration of troops to take place at
Shumla daring the present summer. All
tho garrisons that can bo spared from
tho Second Army Corps, now stationed
Bulgaria, will march thitkor and be
joined by abont thirty thousand men of
tho Imperial Ottoman Guard under Me-
hemet Pacha. Shumla is the very centre
and headquarters of tho Sclavic move
ment sketched out by Kossuth, in his
plan of a Danubian confederation, to be
made np of Roumanians and Bulgarians
as well os bis own disaffected country
men. The Sultan thus means to “beard
tho lion in his den” and mako an issue
with the Khedive, which the latter must
meet in an open manner. How will it be
met.* If the Khedive is not supported
by one or more of the Great Powers, of
course he will have to surrender. Egypt
cannot cope with Turkey single-handed.
But will he be left to meet the issue alcne?
That is not probable. France must pro
tect the Snez Canal. While the Khedive
rules in Egypt, Napoleon is virtually
master of the situation. Not so if the
baton of authority from the Viceroy and
puts it into the hands of a more pliant
took Then France will have to play
second fiddle in the concert. Theso
considerations which will induce France
to support tho Khedivo in liis difficulties
with tho Sultan. The Czar of Russia
also interested in widening the breach
between tho Sultan and his refractory
subject. He will favor the Viceroy, for a
war commenced on this issue is the virtu
al aettlemen of the Eastern question. It
said that the Egyptian plan has aiders
and abettors at St. Petersburg. It ii
the direction of Roumonia that tho Czar
might, by creating a diversion for which
the revolutionary party would bo used ns
a cat’s paw, most materially aid tho Khe
dive should the latter be attacked by the
Saltan, and henco tho head of the Otto
man empire is concentrating troops at
Shnmla for the double purpose of keep
ing the principalities in check and also
over-awing the Khedive: This Turkish
question is an important ono at tho pres
ent time. It may disturb the whole of
Europe, and bring the flag of Russia to
the shores of the Mediterranean. What
Napoleon and the Czar proposed at Til
sit may yet bo realized.
Wc ate not of those who appreci
ate tho eloqaenoe of the Rev. Henry V.
Beecher, or who credit him with all the
piety and .philanthropy which in the
eyes of his admirers noons to ooze from
his every pore. But as a religious wag
he is inimitable. There is a jocosity in
his way of handling sacred themes that
wo find in no other preacher. He touches
upon the awful mysteries of the infinite
and the eternal in tho most hilarious
tone. In the forms and ceremonies of
the sects and churches, he can always
find fnn. A pleasing account of the
latest proceeding of this clerical clown
take from tho New York Herald.
Plymouth church had a pic liic. The
pastor of Plymouth, of course, was pres
ent. On tho boat, stimulated to un
wonted mirth by the good things which
they had enjoyed, the party determined
completing a jolly dny by an enter-
tniumeut of a somewhat less worldly
character than tho sports with which
they had boguiled the previous hours.
So the proper arrangements having been
perfected, tho “Rev.” Mr. Beecher was
arrested on the charge “ of having gone
over to the church of Romo.”
A jury composed of males and females
ns cmpannelled and a clergyman of
Mr. Beecher's persuasion was the judge.
A long indictment was read,the substance
has not been given tis, but which
have no doubt made lively sport of divers
things which some persons regard as the
very rock of tbeir solvation. Tho most
comical part of the performance, how
ever, was “the production of a photo
graph of Mr. Beecher officiating at the
altar of a Romish church, arrayed in the
fall canonicals of a Roman Catholic
priest” How this elegant and original
caricature was surrepticionsly prepared
and held in readiness for the occasion wo
are not informed. This evidence
regarded as conclusive, and Mr. Beecher
was found guilty, and tho “ jndgo passed
tho very capital punishment of ordering
the six huly jurors to kiss the pastor of
Plymouth church.” Being “ ladies, ”
they seem to have had no sort of objec
tion to kissing a man, and the congrega
tion of Plymouth church appear to have
thought it perfectly natural that their
pa;tor should be promiscuously kissed by
the lii8cioas lips of the fcmalo members.
Thus ended this cheerful and edifying
travesty. The pic nio was eminently
succe- 'fid. A sniff of fresh air, a sub
stantial feed, a burlesque on solemn
tilings, and a little diversion smackingof
free love, constituted an ndmiiable pro
gramme for Plymouth church. A jolly
dog, indeed, is Beecher, who makes such
pious fuu and gets paid in sulistantial

B©- As the people of British Columbia
have more than once expressed their
preference for a union with these States,
the politicians of Canada are making un
usual efforts to conciliate their discon
tented brethren on tho Pacific. All, and
more than is asked for by the dwellers in
British Columbia, has been conceded by
the rulers of the Dominion. An annual
grant of $35,000 is pledged to support
the local government and legislation; two
British steamers ore to ran fortnightly
trips between Victoria and San Francis
co; the construction of a railroad across
the continent is guaranteed at a cost, if
necessary, of one hundred million dol
lars; six Representatives and three Sena
tors are to be admitted to the Dominion
Legislature; all public officers appointed
shall be acceptable to the annexed colo
nies, and many other things are promised
to put and keep theso people in a con
tented frame of mind. Fall down and
worship me and I wili give you all the
kingdoms of the earth was the promise
of a certain calorie gentleman centuries
ago, and in that spirit the officials of tho
Dominion seem to be acting now. They
declare that the people of Colombia shall
have money and steamboats and railroads
and representation. But all theso things
are not at the command of the Domin
ion. They cannot construct a railroad
across the continent at the point desig
nated. It will not pay, when antagon
ized by tho North Pacific road, which
will be finished in a few years. That
work will draw the attention of the peo
ple of British Colombia more strongly in
the direction of the United States, and
render all tho promises of the Dominion
barren of results.
'What a Man Does.—According to a
French statistician, taking the mean of
many accounts, a man of fifty years of
age has slept 6,000 days, worked 6,500,
days, walked 800 days, amused himself
4,000 days, was eating 1,500, days, was
sick 500 days, Ac. He ate 17,000 pounds
of bread, 17,000 pounds of meat, 4,600
pounds of vegetables, eggs and fish, and
drank 7,000 gallons of liquid, viz : water,
coffee, tea, beer, wine Ac., all together.
This would make a respectable lake of
300 square feet surface and three deep, on
which a small steamboat could navigate.
And all this solid and liquid material

were anxious to get married, bnt they

■Wan in Europe.—Tho attempt of the
Spanish Cortes to put tho Prince of Ho-
henzollorn on the thrown of Spain, has
caused groat excitement in political cir
cles throughout Europe; particularly in
France, between which power and Pms-
(to which Hoheuzollern belongs) a
spirit of jealousy lias existed since Prus-
iia humbled tho proud Emperor of Aus
tria at Sadowa.

jntors have at last decided to call to the
throne the Prussian Prince Leopold, of
Hohenzollern. France objects to this ar
rangement, and now the cable brings
daily news of impending war between
France and Prussia. It is expected that
Russia will side with Prussia, and Aus
tria with France. Great Britain will
naturally take tides against her old ene
my, France; and should the conflict
come, it will bring with it such a shock
as the world has not felt for years.
We cannot believe that war will come
of this; but ‘our voice is still for war.’—
Tho Sonth cannot bo hurt by it, and may
be a large gainer. The demand for
breadstuff^ will be to great that the South
will be compelled to raise them. This les
son she must learn, sooner or later, andif
Foreign war will teach it, it will prove a
God-send to her. Then again, a general
European war will knock greenbacks in
to a cocked hat, and will be a death-blow
to the bonded aristocracy, which now
lords it over the country. And this will
be another relief to the South—for at
present she suffers all the evils incident
to our immense war debt, without reap
inganyofits advantages. Then again,
there is another and a much greater nope
looming np in the distance, and that is
Southern hulependance! For be it
known, wo (our individual self,) have
never given np this idea! W e still insist
that (he North and South cannot perma
nently and peacebly live together in the same
household ! While this is true, it is equal
ly true—having been demonstrated—that
we cannot, unaided, achieve our own in
dependence. Should Europe, however,
engage in universal war, European pos
sessions in America mast become involv
ed ; and through these complications,tho
United States must inevitably bo drawn
into the contest. Then it wili be seen
and known that the South will join for
tunes with any European power that will
guaranteo ns freedom from the thraldom
of the North.
We ore of the opinion, however, that
the time hits not yet como for war. The
money market of the great financial oen-
tres is the keenest and most sensitive bar
ometer of the great public sentiment of
Nations, and this does not vibrate to the
music of the cannon, drum and fife. We

House.—The House met pursuant to
adjournment, and was called to order by
Prayer was offered by Rev. Mr. Smith.
On motion the calling of the roll was
dispensed with. Tho Journal of the last
day’s session was read.
On motion of Mr. Watkins, the Hon.
H. W. Hilliard was invited to take a seat
on the floor. Adopted.
It is not, of courso, beyond tho limits of pos
sibility that Prussia may refuse to accept the
morral defeat inflicted upon her by thin attitude
of Franco. But, though this he possible,
joico, in the interest of tho peace of the world,
to bclievo it eminently improbable. w Even for
a strictly German question it would be harder
for I’rutJMa to go to war with France in 1870
than it would have been for her to do so in 1866.
During the past four years she has lost rather
than gained in point both in prestige abroad and
power at home. Her financial position is worse
than it was in 1866; her peoplo arc more iliscon-
itctl, her ucwly-annoxed provinces even are
moro hoetilo to her supremacy than they then
were. Tho glory of her military achievements
has lust something of its dazzling brillam-y as
those acliievemcnts have como to be paticntly
analyzed by cold-blooded critics. Prussia has
less confidence in herself and in her great min
ister than she had four years ago. Her position
relatively to the reet of Europe has been still
Austria lias greatly recovered from the 6hock
which prostrated her four years ago; the Sonth
German Sutes have drawn nean r together and
further away from their overshadowing North
ern sister. France has not only reconstructed
her gigantic army, as wu have said, in all its de
partments—alio 1ms accorded to the Emi»eror a
new lease of popular sympathy and of popular
support. All these thiugu would bo important
even in a war begun by France for tho possess
ion of tho Rhino. They would be decisive in a
war provoked by Prussia for a dynasty beyond
the Pyrenees. Who shall fill tho Spanish tliroao
is a question in which Germany caunot possibly

fy tho shedding of German blood. To call Ger
many to war for tho sake of filling the throDe with
a member of tho royal family of Prussia would
havo seemed quite in the natural order of thingB
a century ago. Attempted now, it would do
more to shake the position of King William at
home than to confirm the position of his kins
man at Ha irid.
For Spain herself, an attempt to make a Ho-
hcczollcrn her king in tho tooth of France wbukl
be an act of madness equally without motive
and without measure. It is scarcely conceivable
that such a project can be seriously entertainoil
by any intelligent * paniard. The most rational
explanation, perhaps, that can be suggested
of tho share taken by Prim in tlio transaction is
that ho hopes through pressing it to rccohcQo all
parties in b’pain to the election of the Prince of
the Asturias. The most obstinate enemy of the
House of Bourbon in Madrid might wollpercfer
a boy of Spanich birth, even though a Bourbon,
with peace on the Pyrenees, to a new eivil
aggravated by the armed intervention, not of
the French Government only, but of the wh-do
people of Franco.
But, whatever form tho matter may take, It
is plain that in permitting it to be brought for
ward Prussia has committed a terrible blunder
and conferred upon Napoleon an immense bene
fit. If the issue be war, it will bo a war in wliich
