. H »n. G. S. Rosser.:
Among the fev? faithful representatives
of their constituents now in the < Legisla
ture, this gentleman stands conspicuous.
He has devoted himself sot only to tho
local interest of. his county, bnt to the
general welfare of his section and of the
whole State. • He is always at his post
and thongh not a speaking member his
influence is felt on every question of im
portance that comes before that body.—
His constituents are particularly indebted
to him for the success of their favorite
Rail Road enterprise. Prom its first in
troduction he has worked unceasingly and
indefatigably, jand against great opposi
tion until ho has triumphed and now the
Americas k Florence Rail Road with
812,000 per mile State aid is a success.
He has always voted against the <
travagant pay of nine dollars a day for
members, against the Opera House pur
chase and against all of the schemes of
plunder for which the present Legisla
ture has been so famous.
Webster county could not do better
than return'him again as their Represent
ative at their ensuing election.
To tSie Delegates of tlic Neu nau
and Americas Railroad Con
By n resolution adopted by the Conven-
n when it was in session at Geneva on
the lr.th day of June last, tho Chairman
„f th«* Convention was required to reas-
u mble the Convention (when a Charter
to said Hoad was obtained) at such time
,!!-l place as he might designate, and os
I have been reliably informed that there
u.is been a Charter granted to tho corpo
rators of said Road by the Legislature of
Georgia now in session, I therefore re
quest the Delegates of said Convention,
:.s well as the Corporators mentioned in
said Charter, to assemble at 10 o’clock,
m., on Tuesday tho 27th inst., at New-
•iaii, (lx, to consider and pass upon busi-
ti, .ns of importance to said Company.

City Bonus.—We are informed that
secret meeting was held in this place a
few days ago, l>v a few individuals who
no taxes to the city, at which time a
,vas drafted and forwarded to Atlanta
to l>o presented to the Legislature, grant
ing tho City Council authority to issue
bonds to the amount of fifty thousand dol
lars to build reservoirs in tho city. Was
such an outrage perpetrated on an
enlightened community ? Who author
ized these men to take such a step to
have the citizens taxed for such a pnr-
poso ? There is no necessity for such an
act, and if there was, the tax payers of
tho city should have been consulted, and
a public meeting held to ascertain the
wishes of the citizens on so important a
utter. We don’t believe in a few per
sons taking the financial affairs of the
city in their own hands and issae scrip
and bonds of the city at any time that
suits their convenience and for their own
use. We don’t believe either in such
things being done in the dark and among
those who have not the interest of the
city at heart. We hope that our Repre
sentatives in tho Legislature wiil do all
their power to defeat the bill should
i)G presented. By so doing they will
carry out tho wishes of almost tho entire

Protracted Meeting.—Under the
pervision of Revs. J. B. McGehee, Antho
ny, Dickson and other Divines, the series
of religious meetings that have l>een
progress for the past two weeks in East
Americas, still increases with unabated
interest. The meetings aro held under
an arbor every night, and are attended by
citizens from the city and for miles
tho countryi A great deal of good is
being done by these servants of God
sewing the seeds of righteousness and
reaping a harvest for tho Grand Farmer.
On Tuesday night last, some thirty
forty penitents presented themselves at
the altar, and tho whole congregation
were deeply impressed. Tho aged and
the young wend their way up the isle
to grasp tho hand of tho ministers,
earnest of their intention to seek
the Way and the Truth.
Over thirty persons have connected
themselves with tho church since
progress of the meeting. May the good

last was a gala flay for the children in
the neighborhood-of Plains of Dora. It
was a day set apart for the celebration of
the Sabbath School Scholars of the
Union School located in that neighbor
hood. The place selected was a beauti
ful grove near the Springs.
We did not arrive in time to witness the
opening exercises, bnt learned that after
prayer by the Rev. Mr. Rente, and sing
ing by the Scholars, a very appropriate
address was delivered by Mr. P. S. Twitty
one of the Snperintendants of the school.
Rev, Dr. G. T. Wilburn was occupy
ing the stand and had commenced speak
ing when we arrived. The address of
this gentleman was one of the best of the
kind wo have ever listened to. We had
prepared our notes of the address, but for
tho want of room, cannot dwell upon them
as we would desire. Snfficit, to say, that
it was just such an address as the Dr.
knows how to make.
The next speaker was Maj. M. E. Ry-
1 seder. He stated that he had been fifty
years engaged in teaching Sabbath
School Scholars, and that he had never
forgot the lessons taught in the Sabbath
School. Before getting hid! through
with his speech he had to close, on t
count of a shower of rain, which put
stop to tho exercises.
The faces of the children, radiant with
happiness, constituted a scene, which
angels might hai e looked upon approv
The exercises at the grove being con
cluded, tho company repaired to the ta
bles near the spring, which were most
abundantly spread with everything calcu
lated to satisfy the appetite and refresh
the inner man. All who were present
agreed that they had never witnessed a
more delightful celebration, or one that
passed off more pleasantly.
The Sabbath School at the Plains is in
a very flourishing condition. May its
numbers continue to increase.
The exercises throughout were made
joyous by the delightful melodies of the
Americas Brass Band whose services were
engaged for the occasion. We take this
occasion to return the thanks of the
tiro school, as well as our own, for tho
part they bore in rendering tho exercises
In the afternoon, we had the pleasure

Noble Benefaction.—Tho Trustees
1 the Louisville Medical College,
^Louisville, By.) have created one of the
most liberal and noble benefactions ever
conferred by a public institution upon
any people. The trustees of this college
have instituted one Beneficiary Scholar
ship for each Congressional District in the
Southern and surrounding States. By
this means very many poor but deserving
young men will be enabled to obtain a
thorough medical education. Any young
man wishing to take advantage of this
Benefaction has only to write to the Rep
resentative of the Congressional District
in which ho resides, or to the President
of the Medical Society of his State, or to
Dr. E. S Gaillard,Deaa of the Faculty of
the Louisville Medical College, Louis
ville, Ky., when he will receive full infor
mation of all that is necessary for him to
secure one of the Scholarships. With
proper and welcome delicacy the names
of those who have secured the Beneficiary
Scholarships will be known only to the
Dean of the Faculty. It is unnecessary
to commend those who have established
these noble Beneficiary Scholarships.—
Their act will bring them commendations
wherever it is known.

K3u A fight occurred between two ne
gro men, daring the night of Tburday,
named Lawson Johnson and Bob ; Harris,
in which the former was cut so severely
with a knife in tho hands of the latter
that his life is despaired of. We have
heard so many conflicting reports as to the
origin of this difficulty that we sliall refrain
from giving either. We learn that Har
ris is the step-son of Johnson and that
he was .promptly arrested by Policeman
Lee and confined in the city gnard-lionse.
SSL From our new ndvrtisements it
will be seen that a new firm has settled
in our midst and engaged in the mei
tile business, hoping to gain a propor
tional share of trade by keeping only the
very best quality of goods. They intro
duce tliomselves to the buyers of Ameri
cas and surrounding country through out
columns, this morning, promising noth
ing but what they are fully able to per
form. This then, being the case, we aw
confident that Oppenheimer k Frank’*
store will soon be one of the fixed insti
tutions of our city. Their experience in
business will soon give them a promi
nence that will enable them to rule cloth
ing at such low figures that their store
bound to be the popular resort of those
wanting good clothing. Read advertise
Change or Schedule.—It will bo seen
ora a notice in another column that a
very important change has been made in
tlie arrival and departure of the trains on
tho Southwestern Railroad. By the
change persons taking the night train at
Americas arrive at Macon in time to con
nect with the day trains for Atlanta and
Savannah, provided they want to go to
cither of those cities, thus saving the
pc-nso of remaining in Macon all day.

A Woman Kills Herself Shouting.—
At Bethel church, in Catoosa county, a
woman under the influence of religions ex
citement, commenced shouting, so intense
w#s her enthusiasm that she did notoease
her gyrations tillover come tor violent ex
ertion, intense heat and the fee ted atmos
phere of a close room. In this cond tiun
of utter prostration of mind and body,
she was borne out of the house; but her
vital energies could not be resuscitated,
and she was soon a corpse. A young
man, during the same meeting, was car
ried out, having been overcome by op
pressive heat while shouting.—Dalton
