A DESERTED VILLAGE.
Two companies of iho “Indiana L**- j
giuii” went(io'.vn Iroin their respective ;

show Gen. Morgan light at V eriton. j
T'»< t*.vo towns mentioned were on a
line with Vernon: Jonesville* was the i
nearest : therefore the Jouesvillians
reached the “seat of war” lirst. Just j
outside the captured borough, at j «afe
distance, they halted ami commenced t
to drill, for their eoniru imier, h ing a
wise man, did not deem it altogether
expedient to lead a freshly-organized
company into battle until they hull
heard at least something of army lac* ;

themselves for war, was n deep valley, I

mg and charging ; their friends, the j
Flainingtor.ians, appeared on the hill, j
The Jouesvillians recognized them at !
once, and with a view to showing off. j
began to indulge in a series of figures
sold nourishes so sublime as never vet
to have been thought of by any writer
id army tnelics. But the I‘laiiiinglQn
inns were less fortuna’e in point ol
recognition. They saw the Jonesvil
liatis and halted ; a brie*, very brief,
consultation was field ; a “right-about
face’' was ordered, and just as their
neighbors began to indulge in one ol
their grand charges towards the lop of
ihe bill, with an eye single to their
splendid reception, iliey struck oil
towards Jonesville, sans anv word ol
command, or order to march, at the
rate, as a musician might say, of three
beats in a bar.
'l'liis movement on the part of their
co-laborers in the “cause of their
country” greatly astonished the Jones
villians, for it never in the least
occurred to them, that they, the loyal
representatives of the loval town of
Jonesville, could possibly be mistaken
fur a band of rebel-. There was
something dreadful in the wind ! What
that was, it did not take their imagina
tions long to conjure up. From their
advantageous position the Plaininglon
bovs had, most likely, seen Morgan
and his whole force sweeping on in
that direction. i’hey were then, in all
probability .just ready to come over the
hill from the direction of Vernon —a
moment later and they would be tearing
ilowp upon Hirm like a herd of loeo
n, >nve . With one accord this itm,r as
sion seemed to force its< 11 upon every
member ol t lie company, and by
common consent they continued their
ch ’fge straight on after the demoralized
IMatningtotiions ; or rather, they con
torted it into what those worthies
mistook for a most vigorous and
Such a race was never seen before,
j,ml may never come oti'again. The
Jnnesvilli ms took new fright at every
» xtra exertion on the part of the
Plaimiigtoniatis, and so, to use a homely
phrase, they kept it up, nip and nip.
Finally the dis a icc between Vernon
ami Jonesville was overcome, and into
the latter place dashed the Piainington
nns, calling to the citizens to fly lor
their lives, as Morgan and his horse
thieves were right at hand. And the
citizens flew. Some to their cellars,
some to tlieir garrets, and some toward
the neighboring woods. In five min*
utes it was a legitimate bediain. Men
shouted to each other and swore at each
other, or someone else; women
screamed, children squalled,jacks bray
ed, and dogs barked —every sound that
the little town was qualified to make
came pouring lorth tributary to the
great hub-bub that was coming oil’with
Mich commendable volume.
ITp dashed the Jouesvillians, just as
the excitement was highest. The
Piaiiiinglonians were completely ex
hausted, and as it did not occur to them
that rebels were only flesh and blood,
and then fore liable to gel in the same
condition, they concluded it was folly
to longer continue the flight. So when
their friends appeared, they threw down
their arms and prepared to surrender
o surrender !” cried the comman
der of die Plainingtonians, as the other
company swept up towards them.
“.Never!” responded the Jonesville
man, “never think of surrendering as
long as volt can tight. We are going
to make a stand here, and protect our
homes, or die bv them. Back us up,
my good neighbors—by our united
efforts we can check the hordes of
treason, and hold them till reinforce
ments come to our aid. The goodly
town of Jouesvil’e must not be thus
tamely sunendcred up without an
effort to save her.”
Anew light broke in upon the
l’lainingtonians, and straightway their
courage arose far above zero. Seizing
tlieir arms, they swore that the surren
der of Jonesville, or of anything, or any
one else, was the last thing they could
ever think of. “You interrupted me,”
said tlieir commander ; “1 did not mean
that we were willing to surrender —here
is what. 1 was going to say, “we surren
der? We lay down our arms ? Never,
while there i- a sinew at command, or
a country that tails for ottr services!”
The commanders were now each j
highly pleased with the other. A lew
words', however, sufficed to show pretty ;

what all this great race hail been about,

It is a matter of wonder to some how
it was that w ith the immense force they

the two companies mentioned above
may serve as a partial explanation.

Sergcrnt Gilcrease, of the 10th Ken
tucky, had taken a small squad of men
and struck out from the main army for
the purpose of picking up a few fresh
horses. They came to a place where
too pretty good sized farms joined each
oilier, with tlieir buildings so located as
to hr but a short distance apait.
On tlieir riding up to one of the farm
bouses the proprietor came out and
received them with a very prominent
show of friendship lie had no horses
just at hand, but be might put them in
the way to find plenty—anyhow, he
was friendly to the cause ofllie South,
and therefore would be too happy to
do anything he could for them.
While they were sitting on their
horses, lis'ening to the old fellow’s
bladge, n gun was fired, over about the
other house, and the ball was heard to
pass rather unpleasantly near the little
band. Sergeant Gilcrease asked the
old gentleman what it meant. He told
them there was a boy out in an orchard
of the other farm shooting birds —noth-
This explanation did not fully satisfy
Sergeant Gilcrease, so he told his men
to remain and see what they could do
with the old farmer, while he galloped
over and took a look at matters and
lliinos about the other house.
There was a long lane running past
the house; the end of it nearest to
where the Confederates were, was
fenced up, and had a large gate. —
Sergeant Gilcrease opened the gate,
and as he passed through, it swung
shut again of its own accord. All went
well enough, and nothing looked at all
suspicions until he was within a few
paces of the house, when, to his
amazement, out ol it, and front around
it, poured at least a lull company of
Federal State Guards, all ol whom
commenced firing upon him as rapidly
To retreat was not practicable, for
the gate was dosed and it would not
do to stop for the purpose of opening
it; to clash right past the house, and
down the lane was the only direction
in which lay the slightest hope of his
escape. It was a hazardous undertak
ing but he undertook it, and strange as
it may seem, ran the gauntlet without
either himself or his horse receiving a
scratch, although there must have been
considerably over a hundred shots
fired at him.
Whether this company was drilling
at the farm house, or not, 1 never
learned —one thing l know, they were
not making very strenuous eflorts to
find General Morgan ; and another
thing f?ergt. Gilerease knows, the)'

Caiprsvillc Oa, July 5.
k new Railroad Project.
\ fram a communication in another column
o»l»is paper, it will be seen that anew Uail
rovl project is proposed, to-wit: From Deca-
I tur, A!a., to Cartersviile, Ga. A project is
j now on foot to run a railroad from the former
point to the c ; ty of Atlanta. The route from
i this point to Van Wert, a distance of twenty 7
i miles, has already been chartered and survey
ed, and found practicable and cheap—-perhaps
as cheap as any route of the same length could
he found anywhere else in the State. There
is no way to construct a railroad from Atlanta
to Van Wert without crossing that range of
mountains extending across the State and
known as the benches es the great Blue-ridge,
and much other very rough count; v. The
distance between the points must be between
fifty and sixty miles, with the Chattahoochee
River and numerous smaller streams to cross.
Our corrcspendent argues that, two millions of
dollars can be saved by letting the road from
Decitur, Ala., intersect with the Western
Atlantic Railroad at this point, via Van Wert,
and advises the corporators of the Cartersviile
and Van Wert Railroad to surrender the char
ter of the same for the perfecting of the new
| route. The advantages of this project are ap
j parent to all who have any knowledge of the
two rout s. First, forty-eight miles of the
route is already completed in the Western and
Atlantic Railroad, it being that distance be
tween this point and Atlanta. Second, the
business of the Slate, Lumber, Wood, and
other interests along the route between this
i and Van Wert alone will justify the construc
tion of the road between the two points', to say
nothing of the superiority of the lands along
this route when contrasted with the other
route; and Third and last, it will accomplish
in the end precisely the same object, so far as
Atlanta and the railroads converging there are
concerned, as all the freights received from it
must he disgorged in that citv and distributed
among her various railroads as though it had
reached there by the other route, and in ad
dition to this, it will prove a great feeder to the
Western and Atlantic or State Road, in which
enterprise every bona fide citizen of the State
feels, or should feel, an abiding interest.
Wliat is best to be done ?
How often do we hear this question asked
in regard to our political status ot late days.—
Who can answer it impartially or advisedly 1
If we were left to consult our own prejudices
and feelings we could do it without hesitation.
But would that lie for the best ? The ques
tion is what is best to be done under all the
circumstances 1 fc-ha II wc register and vote, il
entitled, or shall we let the wholethingog by de
fault? We think we can, at least advise our
readers, in part, in regaid to the last question,
and that is, by all means, register your names,
whether you ever vote again or not— UEtasTEu.
You know not what emergency may arise in
the future, and il you fail to reg stei now you
will be deprived of a vote. It certainly can do
no one any harm to register, and it may he a
great boon hereafter to be allowed t e privi
lege of suffrage. The time may come, sooner
or later, when you can save your conntry from
anarchy and ruin and preserve our institutions
and perpetuate constitutional liberty and free
dom by being a voter. Don’t surrender the
last ves;e u e of a freeman to gratify your politi
cal prejudices and animosities.
But how shall I vote —for or against a cm
\ention? If I vote against it, as my inch na
tions lead me, I fear I will eventually be dis
franchised and my property confiscated, or, to
say the least of it, wo will be forced to live un
der the rule of the bayonet, whi e still more
oppressive conditions and degrading terms will
be forced upon us. Why, I am certain, if all
these evils are to befall us, we had better vote
fora convention. But, then, if I vote for a
convention I shall be considered a radical and
consequently an enemy to my country and
people, by voting to saddle upon the same an
infamous, oppressive, unjust and unconstitu
tional measure, or, in other words, putting the
knife into ihe hands of my enemies with which
to cut my own throat. So, between the two
extremes I am unable t> determine which is
the best. Oh, that I could ? Well, thousands
of Georgia’s sons occupy this undetermined
position to-day! One party leader advises
them one way and another in a different way.
While they take a standpoint and survey the
situation, on the one hand looms up in the dis
tance the constitution, republicanism, justice
and humanity, all arrayed in their beautiful
and time-honored robes of purity and chas ity,
while on the other hand hideous visions of
bristling bayonets, disfranchisement, con isca
tion, and degradation arc marshalled forth to
intimidate and awe the admirer of the former.
At every crook and turn of our path wc still
hear the question ask 7 and, “what is best to be j
dene!” Again, wc say, be sure and REGIS- j
TER, first, and then Jo as we shall do, vote i
as our judgment dictates to be best under all !
the circumstances, irrespective ot par y obii- ■
gatious or considerations.

Messrs. Editors :
It has became indhpensible to the
future prosperity of Atlanta, Augusts!,
and Charleston, that a shorter railway
Connection be established with the
Mississippi Valley, to secure to them
the immense trade legitimately theirs,
by location and the facilities they pos
sess for continuing the transportation
eastward ; w henever this connection is
made, it will be the cheapest touie to
New 7 York and Liverpool.
Notwithstanding, these cities are lol
ly aware of the facts, and long since
desirous of establishing this very im
portant link ol Railroad; yet the difli
cullies, in the \ya\, on all the proposed
routes, have resolved the cost to an
amount exceeding a compensation of
returns. And to obviate the difficulty
in their way, and secure to them the
end in view, w 7 e invite them to unite
with us upon '.lie charter ot the Car*
tersvil'e & Yanwfrt Road, and the,
connection can be easily made, at a
cost saving §2,000,000.
A road, from Cartersviile by Van
Wert to Decatur, Alabama, will benefit
Ihe State Road so much that no one
can doubt for a moment a favorable
arrangement with the State Road ;
(interest always controls) the State,
so much impressed with ihe importance '
of these roads in developing some o*
the best resources of the State. Whilst
adding to the value of her own proper
ly — the State road, was induced to
grant a.charter liberal beyond a prece
dent, ami doubtless, nan be induced to
lend further aid if it becomes necessary
to its success. Which will start us
with a powerful ally.
Then let the Georgia Railroad, and
Charleston Road, and Atlanta, unite
with us at this end, and the Memphis &
Charleston road at the other end, and
commence work immediately at each
end, and induce as many citizens on
the line to take contracts as possible
payable in stock; ami what is to prevent
a certain and speedy success? Con
sidered a part from any ulterior end in
view, this road must of necessity be
one of the best paying roads in the
South. 1 know of no road exepet the
Baltimore and Ohio Road, which will
•surpass this road in the amount ot
freight it will cary; the two items ot
slate ami lumber may soon swell to an
importance greater than the Coal trade,
as Slate is destined so soon as that in

Most of the roads of the United
States are crooked, some seemingly
unnecessarily, adding vastly to their
cost of construction, in iron, in loss ol
time, speed, and wear and tear of
machinery, besides taxing unnecessari
ly their customers.
But like the Czar of Russia, we have
not at our command the means to
obviate all these inconveniences, and
say let the road be built perfectly
straight, if so this connection might be
made direct iroin Atlanta to Decatur,
by building a road 150 miles long, by
way of Marietta 125, via Cartersviile
It being a fact, that our connection
by air line is only 3 miles further than
a direct line, and that our chances for
preserving distance to an Air Line, is
equal to the chances of either of the
other proposed routes, and having the
advantage to connect on liberal terms
bv charter with the State Road, 48
miles above Atlanta on the way to
Decatur, and the labor of the Peniten*
tiary guaranteed by the charter free ot
cost to grade the road to the Stale line,
taken in connection with the other
advantages alluded to, does not com
mend this route to those who have to
foot the bill of this new enterprize.
Human nature has undergone a mate
j rial change since the war. If our
! Engineer did not make a very great
! mistake we can reach the Alabama line
at a cost of about 831)0,000 by using the
; hands of the Penitentiary and through
i Alabama wc would, at a rough estimate
! say, that 82.000,000 will be sufficient
to finish the connection making it a
i very cheap Road.
1 'These are only a few of tht? many
favorable points that might be made.
Wc invite those interested to inves
tigate this route and think of it, and
yon wlll.be more impressed with its
importance every time you think of
it. ; S.

The appetite may sicken, and so die.”
Butter-milk, is a nice drink if well
managed. To give it a pleasant, pecu

while churning. Keep it in a warm
place to aid fermentation. Like brandy
and honey, the older it becomes the
thicker and better. Experience has
taught ine that it may even be given

dose of salts on going to b ed.—
Do not be afraid to give them to your
hogs ; they are not apt to hurt them, if
they don’t eat to o many.
Sour Krout, is a nice and pleasant
dish. It is easy of digestion when
given to milk Cows and dutchmen.—
Keep it covererd in brine, and it will
continue sour and work, even after it is
taken into the stcmache. It must be
protected from the green flies, who are
very partial to it.
Eggs when eaten should be sound
and clear of young chickes. To ren

them two hours-and a half, in hot wa

they will digest in three or four days.

(WHITAKER & SASSEEN, Proprietors,)
TXTE take pleasure in informing our old
friends, patrons and the public gener
ally, hat we have refitted, painted, furnished,
and enlarged the above House, making it in
6tyle and capacity equal to any house in this
city. We have done this at a heavy expense.
Our House is well located, within 100 yards of j
the General Passenger Depot; and we flatter
ourselves that a long experience and .strict ap
plication to business will not fail to be appre
ciated by a generous public. Our charges for
the present will be §3 per day for transient
board, and we arc offering special inducements
to business men for single meals, &c.
WHITAKER & SASSEEN,
I hereby forewarn ail persons not to trade
for a note given by me to Messrs. Short Broth
ers, of New York, for One Hundred and Nine
ty-nine Dollars and Eight cents, as I do not
intend to pay said note unless compelled by
law. The consideration for which the note
was given has entirely failed.
