IioXDOX, August 45.—The Tribane
special correspondent from Rheims, on
Tuesday, sends very important and bite
news of the French movements, which
are not allowed to be telegraphed. Yes
terday evening there were about one hun
dred and fifty thousand troops in and
aboutRheims under McMahon.
Daring the night they began, to move
towards Ardennes and are still moving in
that direction. By noon this place, will
be entirely evacuated. They take the
road to Bethel and Mezieres, but even
the officers do not know how far they
will go in that direction. If what is be
lieved here about Bazaine be true, the
two armies will soon be united.
Bazaine is reported at headquarters to
have said that he could beat the enemy
on the 20th, but if be waited until the
25th he could annihilate [them. This
afternoon the march of troops which be
gan last evening continues. Artillery,
infantry .and cavalry are pouring unin
terruptedly through town. It is rain ng
hard to-day. I compute that nearly two
hundred thousand men in all have pass
ed. There is no longer a doubt about
the direction of the movement. From
the officers of the baggage and supply
train I learn that they have orders to go
direct to Montmedy. Two baggagemen,
who had tried to get toward Verdun, had
been stopped by the Uhlans, and. all re
ports agree that every road thither is
picketed by the Prussians.
Reorganization is proceeding with the
utmost dispatch. For example, a sup
ply train of five hundred wagons, and
fully equipped, was organized and reach
ed Rheims from Verdun in three days.
High officers here are positive that a
part of Bazaine’s forces aro between Briey
and Etain. Our own movements from

the way he should do, in case he had
the misfortune to be insulted.
Those were tho days of hard drinking,
prodigious swearing,” and brutal man

it a captain of a year’s standing threw
a glass of wine in his face. He still said
nothing, but wiped his face with his

ancing the same, shall be considered as

protection, that he forbid his Freedmen
hunting hogs any more.
4th. That we do bind oarselvee not to

on the community any longer, and that
we take this moons to inform the parties
engaged in such that they must stop at

means will be employed by the citizens

Editob Republican : Knowing the in
terest yon feel in all agricultural affairs,
and your desire to do anything that may
in any wise promote the fanning interest
of the countty, I drop you this note, in
regard to what may properly be
the “ Model Farm ” of this connty for the
present year. I allude to that of Mr.
John N. Hudson who resides obont four
miles South-east of this place. I visited
his place yesterday, was prepared (from
what I had heard) to tee a goad crop, but
astonished at what I saw,—his land
is naturally quite poor and very much
broken, yet by his system . of draining,
preparing, manuring and cultivating, he
has succeeded in making a crop which is
unrivaled in this county, and I venture
(natural advantages being equal)' unsur
passed in the State,—and when I say
crop, Mr. Editor, I don’t mean cotton on
ly, he will moke an abundance of com to
supply his place another year and proba
bly have some to spam
Now, I do not propose to go into . all
the particulars of his tystem, and in that
way deprive him of the natural and inno-
cent gratification to be derived from the
gratuitous .importing of information,
which experience teaches him will enable
the farmer to increase tho yield of his
land four-fold, nor do I wish it understood
that all of uz here in Schley are making
’ crops, Ioritywant to give
to Mr. Hudson that credit which his suc
cess merits, to place on the record one
more instanco of the susceptibility of our
ItwLi to improvement, ana to bring be-

villo Courier-Journal says:
A wise old darkey in the Southern part
of Kentucky came to his old master the
day before the lato election, and said he:
“ Mars John, I wants to vote de Demo
cratic ticket. The fact is, I think de nig
gers ought to split up anyhow. If we
r votes Democratic, the Radicals
is ungrateful, an’ then tho League
fines us five dollers an’ warns ns. If we
votes Radical, de Knklux ’ll git us sore.
I wants to dived like, so as to make it
de intrust ob boff parties to treat us kin’
an’ friendly.” That darkey is a states
man and a philoso her. His head is

Elder William Rosa, who died
28th of July, at his residenoe in Schley
connty, Ga., was bora in Hancock coun
ty, Ga., on the 12th day of September,
He nuited with the church of Christ
1821, and though licensed to exhort, a
few years afterward, he was not—on ac
count of some peculiarities of character—
ordained until 1854; after which, for sev
eral years, he was actively engaged in the
ministry—his time being pretty well fill
ed up in preaching to churches. His la
bors were blessed, and he was instrument
al in building several churches to an
viable degree of prosperity. He was
ted as a peace maker, ever seeking to set
tle difficulties between brethren, os they
arose in the churches. For several yean*
past he has had charge of no church,
preaching as opportunity presented itself,
but still manifesting unabated interest
and zeal in the cause of the blessed Sa
lle loved, ardently, association with
his brethren in Christ Jesus, and nothing
pleased him more than conversation upon
topics of Christianity. For forty years
he was a devoted “temperance man,”
abets and eeeryvhere identifying himself
with the canse, and endeavoring to 6tay
the tide of the mightiest evil that ever
cursed the world.
A short time before his illness, he
pressed himself os being in the enjoy
ment of “ sweeter communion with Christ
and as happier in preaching the gospel,
than he had for a long while* ”
He rejoiced in being able to sav:
ive not aught against a soul living.
During a part of his sickness his so
ings were exerntiating, but not a murmur
escaped his lips. ■- He said, “ his suffer
ings were good for him, and he was re
signed, perfectly, to all; that every pain
brought him nearer heaven.*’ We cannot
only commend his life,- but feel that his
strict honesty, faitJf nines* to every obli
gation, parity of life and unweonsd de
votion to the cause of true Christianity,
are worthy onr imitation. Though al
