E&- A bill has been introduced in the Legislature to bring on an election for civil officers at the same time as that for members of the Legislature. r Maj. J. C. Giuffis, of the firm of Wadsworth & Co.,has just re turned from the North, where he has been engaged in baying up a stock tor the coming season. Though the trade of this bouse, since ita establishment, will compare favorably with that of any other house in Georgia, engaged in the same business, the stock io store and arriving is by far the most extensive and varied ever brought to this section. In Hardware, Tinware, House-Furnishing Goods, Agricultural Implements, Paints, Oils, Ac., the best only have been brought out by the Major, who selected the entire stock in person, not overlooking the simplest article. Country merchants, planters and oth- « who have been sending their orders to other markets for articles kept by these gentlemen will not only save mon ey by ordering from this house, but will find the articles of the best quality and manufacture. Customers will find attentive clerks al ways ready and willing to wait upon them. p*The streets of onr city are all named, and jet there is no way of indir eating them i it would not cost much to have the name of each street marked on small boards and put up at-each corner, which would be a great convenience to citizens as well as visitors.

New such a magazine Balou’s is just what is wanted at the fire side. It contains so many good stories, so much poctiy of real merit, and many engravings of interest, and all for 15 cents single copies, or $1,50 per year, that we do not wonder at its circulation being the largest of auy magazine in the country. It deserves it, for it is enter prising and full of life. It is for sale at all periodical stores in the country.— Thomas & Tolbot, 05 Congress Street, Boston, are the publishers.

Special to the Daily Journal,] Washington, Sept. 13.—Telegrams from London state that the Paris corres pondent of tho Telegraph says, that the recognition of the U. S. Government was but little valued, being regarded merely as the exhibition of tho good will of a power that is without material weight in tho Europen system. There has been some considerable cav alry fighting at Chatteau Therny, in which the Prussians were repulsed with considerable loss.

The Emperor stated that ho deplored the war but had yielded wholly to public opinion in declaring war. Florence, Sept 13.—General Cordou- na, in command of the Italian troops on the Papal frontier, lias issued proclama tions in which he assures the inhabitants that he does not bring war but peace and order, leaving to tho administration full freedom of action and that theindepend- enco of the Holy See would not be viola ted.

This establishment is fully prepared to suit customers in quality and style of goods at prices that defy competition.— Give them a call. The clothing store of M. Wachtel seems to be full of new goods, and yet learn that not half of his stock has arrived. In looking over the clothing of this estab lishment we find one of the best selections we have seen in the city since the war, and gentlemen who buy ready-made cloth ing should make it a point to call at this house and examine such articles as they may wish to purchase, wo feel confident that they will be pleased both with the goods and the price.

SPEER & HOOKS, BANKERS & BROKERS, AMERICUS, GA., B UY and KELL STOCKS, BONDS, GOLD, SILVER and EXCHANUE. . Notes and Drafts collected ut Banker’s With the captnre of the French Em peror at Sedan, terminated the success ful public career of one of tho most re- markabio men of the Nineteenth Century. For twenty-two years he has loomed up before the oyes of the world as tho graml central figure iu European politics. A nod from him disturbed the cutire con tinent. At a word from liis imperial lips embattled millions rushed into the field aud the thunder of his artillery shook the thrones of Europe to their very foundations. And yet this autocrat was not born great; nor was greatness thrust upon him. His career was planned by himself ; his achievements were executed by himself; aud lie is alike responsible for the glory of his successes and the hu miliation of hi3 defeats. The architect of his fortunes, he was, at the same time, the author of liis ruin. them that it was bnt the beginning of a general -revolutionary movement Tho E )t was discovered and crashed, and venturer arrested. He was sent to Paris. Louis Phillippe felt that he could afford to be magnanimous. He present ed the conspirator with three thousand dollars and shipped him to New York.— He remained in the United States several months? and many contradictory stories are told of his adventures and personal habits. It Mens to be pretty dear that he would not pay Ids hotel bills, and that he led a dissipated life, but, at the same time, he continued his studies and con fidently proclaimed bis intention to oc* cupy the throne of his nude. The ill ness of his mother recalled him to Switz erland, and he returned to that country shortly before her death. In 1839 he published the “Idees Nspoleonienness,” a political work whioh contributed much to the revolution of 1848. HIS FAILURE AT BOULOGNE. In 1840 he made another unsuccessful attempt, landing, at Boulogne with a handful of men and a tame eagle, ho was driven into the water, captnred, tame eagle and all, and sent to Paris under guard. Louis Philippe behaved wonder- fuly wclL He had tho adventurer tried by tho House of Peers and sentenced to perpetual imprisonment. The castle of Ham, lieer tho Belgian frontier, was se lected os tho place of confinement. In this quiet retreat Louis Napoleon passed six years. Ho devoted himself to politi cal studies and wrote several works of a decided political tendency, and of con siderable ability. Bnt ho soou wearied of his confinement, and the result was that, one fine morning, Louis Philippe was startled by the information that his prisoner had escaped. It was true. Dis guised os a common workman, he left the prison made his way to the Belgian frontier, and in a few days uade|his ap pearance in London, where ho created some excitement among literary meu and politicians. THE REVOLUTION OF 1848. Than came the great revolution of 1848. Franco declared for a Republic. Louis Napoleon was elected a Deputy to tho National Assmbly. Great opposition was manifested nud he wrote a very art ful letter tendering his resignation. A reaction followed. He was re-electod by four departments, and took his seat in the National Assembly. The repnblican nature of his writing and the influence of his name built up a strong party. He was elected President of the Republic by a majority of over 4,000,000 votes. THE COUP D’ETAT. . For three veors President Bonaparte remained at the head of the Republic.— He schemed and plotted all tho time in order to gain tho confidence of tho peo ple. But opposition was rampaut— Nothing could conciliate it. The Presi dent finding re-election impossible de termined that he would carry out his long cherished plan. Everything was quietly rangod and, ou the 2d of December, 1851, the coup d etat was an accomplished fact. Ou tho morning of that day ho Bad nearly 100 prominent meu seized in their beds; tho Assembly was forcibly dissolved; Paris declared in a state, of siege, and, in suppressing the disorder which followed, over 5,000 citizens were slaughtered, and some 27,000 transported to the pouul colonies of Cayeuue and Africa, whero the greater number died.

We aro threatened with the revival of the old onti-Masonic party, under another name. The new organization is evan gelical in character, and is composed of the reformed Presbyterian, Northern Baptist and Christian Churches." One of ita objects is to exclude from the chnrch ’all persons who havo any connection whatever with secret societies of any kind. I0uA French paper says tho Prussians aro wonderfully well informed of every thing that goes on, even to the smallest details. Borne days ago a regiment of Uhlans entered a village through which the French urmy had passed four and twenty hoars before. The French had with great difficulty obtained 3,000 rations from the country people, the Prussians required 25,000; they were told that it was impossible to comply with this demand, and that by completely des poiling tho inhabitants it would be im possible to colloct more than a quarter of what was claimed. Tho commandant pulled some notes ont of his pocket and looked through them. “Where Shultz ?’’ said he. “ Here am I, com mandant,” replied on honest fellow, red dening with pride at finding himself known to so powerful a person. “Yon have three cows, and 100 hens. I know where yon have hidden jour oats, you withdrew your flour yesterday. Be so good os to fetch all that, and be quick about it.” Thus the commandant tilled all the inhabitants one after the other, and proved to them that he was as well acquainted as themselves with their re sources. It is needless to add. that the 45,000 rations were made np in an hoar’s time. The Prussians act in this manner everywhere, thanks to the skill and num ber of their spies; and this explains how such great numbers always seem .well provided with food.

Kerosene lamps have lieen introduced into that conntty. The father of Lonis Napoleon Louis Bonaparte, the third brother of tho first Napoleon. In common with the rest of the family, he stood in awe oi his magnificent elder brother, and, reali zing his dependent position, suffered himself to bo swayed to and fro, like a pendulum, at his will. Napoleon forced him to marry Hortense Beaulmrnais, the beautiful and giftedd aughter of bis royal spouse the Empress Josephine. Louis and Hortense were already engaged to different parties and viewed the match with mutual repugnance. But the iron will of Nnpoleou never bent before such trilling obstacles, and ho commanded the marriage. There was no appeal. Hor tense broke her engagement with the gallant Duroc, and Louis sorrowfully yielded to the necessity of the occasion. They were married, and Louis accepted the throne of Holland. But tho splen dors of royalty only gilded the misery of tho unhappy pair. There was continual strife between them, and it has been as serted that the fair Hortense proved false to a marriage vow, which was in itself false, and lavished her smiles aud her favors upon a prominent Dutch Admiral. The story may have been a foul slander, but it is certain that when her third child, Louis Napoleon Bona parte, the subject of this sketch, was born, tho husband of Hortense was more snprised than gratified, and would not have recognized him as his son had it not been urgent recommendation of his august brother. HIS JUVENILE CAREER, Hortense and her husband separated forever soon after this event, and Lonis Napoleon, two years after his birth, which occured iu 1808, was baptised by Cardinal Fescli, Napoleon nud Maria Louisa acting as god-parents. Louis Napoleon and his brother were tho only heirs to tho French throne until the birth of the King of Rome, and were consequently very important personages. Rut the star of Napoleon was suddenly obscured by the dark cloud of an evil dostiny, aud, after the eventful Hundred Days, the Empire was shattered to frag ments, and Waterloo. When the illus trious captii e left his capital for tho last time, Louis Napoleon, .then seven years old, embraced him, and even then a vogue longing for revenge may have filled tho boy’s mind and decided the career, which, in after years was to give him sovereign sway and masterdom. HE BECOMES A REVOLUTIONIST. The Revolution of 1830 came and with it a momentary gleam of hope to the Bonapartes. But Louis Phillippe re fused Louis Napoleon’s request that he might bo allowed to enter the French army, and the youthful adventurer re turned to Italy to take part in the at tainted revolution in Romaga, in 1831. France and Austro crashed the move ment, and Lonis Napoleon barely suc ceeded in escaping from the country in the disguise of a footman. More intri gues followed without any important results, and Louis Napoleon found him- seif after tbe death of his brother aud the Duke DeReiehstadt, tho heir to the throne of the Bonaparte*. He gave him self up to political and military studies. A work from his pen, published in 1832, entitled “Reveries Pohtiqaes,” declared that France could only be restored to her former glory and prosperity by a mem ber of tiie Bonaparte family—that other could unite tho development of Republican ideas with tho military' of tho people. He also publish “Manual ol Artillery,” stud to be a val uable contribution to military science. A blow silenced opposition. No man dared to raise his voice. Tho usurper obtained control of the army; proclaimed himself Emperor “ by grace of God and the will of the French people,” and, after dis charging his mistress, married the beauti ful Eugenie, the daughter of the Count ess of Montijo. Then followed an’olliance with England. Tho adventurer who had once paced tho streets of London as o special policeman, was the guest ot Vic toria and Albert, and received from tho hands of the English Queen the Order of the Garter, llespectablo meu wondered and acquiesced. The Empire was peace. Order reigned. Money was abundant, and France moved rapidly onward in civilization and prosperity. * United with England aud Turkey, he humbled the pride of Russia, and, iu 1859, he con ducted the brilliant Italian campaign in person, giving Austria a blow from which she has not yet recovered.

COHEN, O THE DECLINE ASD FALL OF THE EMPIRE. But here tho most brilliant chapters of this romance end. The Mexican business of 1861 was the first downward step.— Louis Napoleon declared his intention reconstruct the Latin races iu America, a project which ho thought feasible in consequence of the great Southern rebel lion. But affairs took an uuexpected turn. The cause of the Uuion triumph- Maxmiliau was nimble to hold his i, and tho result was disaster, defeat and disgrace. This failure shook popu lar confidence in Napoleon’s iufalibility. Opposition again manifested itself. Go u- ciliation was tho policy, and hence the Plebiscitums. An incurable disease fasten ed upon him and life became a horrible burden. No wonder that he made takes. Over tho Rhine a new danger menaced him. Tho States of tho North German Confederation were combining together and ho frit that only a bold stroke of successful audacity could save him. The first thing needed was a pre text and that was found in the candidacy of Holienzolcm for the Spanish throne. Every ono knows how flimsy was this excuse for war. Thou camo the declara tion of hostilities against Prussia, and after a campaign of one month—a cam paign of unparalleled disaster to Franco —the battle of Sedan accomplished his overthrow. We may well ask what next? Bnt it is useless to speculate upon the rapidly shifting present. The public career of Napoleon is probably at an end. He great, and posterity will give him due credit. He was a crimual and he has suffered for it But the story of his life is yet to be written. Tbe record will be blaek indeed, but it will be relieved by somo spleuded services aud illustrious achivoments.

The light is fading down the eky, The shadows grow aud multiply, I hear the thrnah’* evening song. But I have borne with toil and wrong So long, so long 1 Dim dreams my drowsy aenaea drown— So, darling, Idea my eyelid* down. My life’s brief spring went wasted by, My summers ended fruitlessly; I learned to banger, strive and wait— I found you,—lovo oh, happy fate 1 Bo late, so late! Now all my fields axe turning brown— Bo, darling, kiss my eyelids down ; Oh, blessed sleep! oh, perfect rest! Thus pillowed on your faithful breast; Nor life nor death is wholly drear, O, tender heart since yon are here. So dear^aodearl Sweet love, my aoul * sufficient crown! Now, darling, Usa my eyelids down! But Lonis Napoleon was of too rest less and impatient a nature to remain long engaged in such peaceful pursuits.
