the Democratic party of Georgia are in

Ey virtue of this authority, they re

ia the several counties of this State to
send delgates to meet in Convention in the
city of Atlanta, on Wednesday the 17th
day of August next, to take into consid

the party may require.
The usual basis of representation in
such Convention is double the number
of Representatives which each county

hope probably is that England will be
drawn into tho European straggle, and
that England's distress will be Ireland’

fellow-citizens keep as cool ns they can
this hot weather, and stand aloof from
the imbroglio which originated in per
sonal ambition, and which is to he made
bloody by national jealousy. The pro

I opposed it inflexibly. To me it was
clear that the North only could be the
true ally of Prussia ; with the South we
had nothing in common. The Govern
ment of Prussia never wavered in its
friendship for yours. It Is a traditional
policy with us. Frederick the Great was,
I think, the first European sovereign to
recognize your independence. I am

Oth. Because the Timber is of the choicest selection, thoroughly seasoned.
Ttli. Because no one will fail to observe the excellent quality of paint used upon them, which is

Fnnc in Wilcox.—A fire occurred on
the plantation of Mr. P. Doster, in Wil
cox county, on the 18th, from rather^ a
fanny cause. It seems that a negro on
tho place, being troubled with fleas un
der his house, determined to exterminate
them, and adopted the following novel
hay will xotbe worth cutting. Many aro mode: Gathering np- a lot of straw, he
placed it beneath the structure, and set
fire to it The fleas were destroyed, and
so was the house! That negro ought
to get out a patent for a new xnehod of
extirpating Hesm.—Hawkinsvilk Dispatch,
A SrimaoRN Fact.—Thera is scarcely any dis-
oano in which purgative medicines are not
or less required, and much suffering might be
prevented were they moro generally used. No
person can feel well while a costive habit of
body prevails; besides, it soon generates seri
ous disease which might have been avoided by
a timely use of Cathartic Medicines. For this
purpose DR- TCITS VEGETABLE LIVER
