8chley desire to bring their cotton and trade
to Americus. if the dUcrepency in prices are
not loo great, but as the market now stands
they intend that Columbus shall be their
market in future. Cannot our buyers do

We are informed also that n great deal of
cotton is going from Webster county to
Columbus for the same reason—better prices.

On the Streets.
On Monday last. Marshal Lingo arrested
ie Ernest Williams, a colored boy, for
shooting a “flip” on the streets, which is a
violation of the city ordinance. Mayor Fel
der sentenced Ernest to a fine of fifteen dol
lars and costs in default, thirty days labor
The boys had better throw their “flips”
away as the Marshal says beintends to break
up the “flip” business if be has to employ
secret police to do it, and the Mayor has de
termined to punish every boy caught shoot
ing one in the city, with a fine or work on the
streets. The things are more dangeronstban
a pistol or gun, for its work is silent and
quite as destructive. A few days ago, a val
uable canary bird belonging to Mrs. W. K.
Bell was killed in its cage by a mean boy
with a ••flip.” The killing of the bird did
the boy no good, but robbed the lady of a
valuable and cherished pet.

LETTER FROM LEE.

. Mb. Editor.—Our community is mov

despite cf all the obstacles thrown in
her way—hot from the election of Gar
field, has caused a raffle upon her plac
id bosom. Wc are convinced that he
is elected; aid that nothing can pre
vent his inauguration, and we would
no^if wc could, raise a finger to pre
vent it. As far as our dear Southland
concerned, he is powerless to harm
her if he should desire ever 60 much to
do so. All we ask or desire is to be
let alone to work out our own prosper
ity and happiness. We have the re
sources and the will to develop them,
and success will be ours, if we are al
lowed the same right and privileges as
other sections of our great country.
I went to Cnthbert last week to at
tend the Bethel Association which con
vened at that place, and was delighted
with the appearance of things. Wc
met a great many people and heard
good preaching. Cnthbert is a
flourishing town, her educational, so
cial and moral advantages are unsur
passed, and the hospitality of her peo
ple is par excellence. They understand
the art of making their guest feel that
they are at home among friends instead
of among strangers. While there 1

heart swell with pride wlieu I think of
the facilities afforded to the youth of
our land for a liberal education for in
tellectual and moral training—it is this
that makes Georgia the Empire State
of the South.
Our people were not surprised, nor
disappointed at the election of Joseph
E. Brown to the United States Senate
on Tuesday. He was the choice of the
majority of them, and we know that
the interests of our dear State could not
be confided to more faithful or abler
hands. Georgia lias reason to he proud
of the influence she wields in the Uni

It is difficult to realise the enormous power
of the bright speck, ehiniag so quietly ia the
sky. A recent writer has shown that the
power which the ana has to put forth to hold
Jupiter in hie orbet is equal to the combined
strength of 170,000,000 bars of solid steel,
each ono mile in diameter. Jupiter’s pall
upon the earth, according to the san
thority, is equal to tk# strength of 23,000,000
bare of steel, each af thorn oae feet ia disas
ter. So, if the mera power of gravity were
*0 that was required to make Jupiter’s ap-
ptoach dangerous to the earth, evidently he
