(From Tht Land we Loir ] I, Klnmnr<i us the Morgan Haiti into Imlinua anti Ohio. A DESERTED VILLAGE. Two companies of iho “Indiana L**- j giuii” went(io'.vn Iroin their respective ; tiiwut —Jonesville and Plaining!on —to , 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* ; tics. The spot ahosen by the venturesome Jonesvillnns, in wMeli to educate i themselves for war, was n deep valley, I and while they were righting their c yes. ! sold wheeling, marching, r ountennarch- j 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 malignant PURSUIT. 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 unconditionally. 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 ; clear!v just bow matters stood, and; what all this great race hail been about, yd neither was w illing to acknowledge the corn ; so they made out that Mor w.‘? coming, sore citoucb, and that - they l.i ad double-quicked, not because tbev were fra id of him, hut bceaus c they wanted io gd to Jo;.? r' die he.! 1 nf him it; order tint they might defend the 'own. tin they went out and ' formed in line of battle on the Vernon * side ol the place, and, m the language of the poet, —*• Waited and waited Until did pre* ail The that hinds had Abandoned the trail,’* Or. in other words, waited till night came on and a runner came with it. bring'Mg a mess id astonishing Intelli -2 mcc to tin- frightened citizens of the “deserted village,” to the effect that (General Morgan had quitted Vernon, was marching, not towards Jonesville, but directly a wav from it. It is a matter of wonder to some how it was that w ith the immense force they i called out, the Federals did not prove J more annoying to General Morgan in ■ : ihe course ol his raitl. The conduct of the two companies mentioned above may serve as a partial explanation. | There w ere enough constantly at hand | to have swallowed the Confederates ; without salt, as the saying is, but like i the Jouesvillians, they were generally j only a little distance away, engaged in | drilling, or something else. I recollect | a little aflair that came off just after the i army got into Ohio. If not strictly l humorous, it goes to further substanti- I ate what I have been saving with reference to the keep-off propensities that were so fully developed in the “Legions and also to show that when accidently wrung in they were deeid i edly SHARP SHOOTERS. 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- ing more. 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 as possible. 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)' would have made a very desirable band of sharp shooters —for an enemy. He savs in no instance during lire raid was he so completely disgusted with the Northern ‘-Legions” as in this — firing one hundred fair shots at short range, and not one scratching him. •An exehang ssks ; “Can any of our readers pursue the following touching appeal and retain a dry eye ?

MILAM J Editors and Proprietors. 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. you want to laugh heartily, j don’t fail to read the article headed “Humors ol the Morgan Raid into ( Indiana and Ohio,” which we extract) from The Lund ff'c Love, and will j be found in another column of this pa- ’ per. 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 terest is fully developed at Vauwert, to run out of market ail other articles in use for house-covering, to say nothing of the many other valuable purposes subserved, and for furniture, &c; be sides passing through one of the finest farming lands in Georgia, it runs along the edge of, thence from Vanwert di rectly through the largest interior belt of Long Leaf Pine in the South, fur nishing immense quantity of lumber freight, Charcoal freight, Wood, Tar, &c. In making links of connection for the purpose ol transporting large quan tities of heavy freights, the great disid eraturn is to shorten and streighten roads. 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 153 miles. 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 more impressed with its importance every time you think of it. ; S. For the Cartersville Express. Essay on Food BY F.PItIRtJS “If music be she food of love, play on. Give me excess of it, that. surfeiting, The appetite may sicken, and so die.” Shakespeare. Butter-milk, is a nice drink if well managed. To give it a pleasant, pecu liar. acid taste, mix with hot water 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 to delicate pigs without serious inju ry. Oysters are also a pleasantbeverage. Those that are dr ird and put into air tight cans lull of water are best. Their odor is delicious. Eat them raw or cooked, llogs will eat them when very hungry. Cucumbers are good for puny Children and dyspeptics. To prepare them for the table, gather them before they get too ripe, put salt and pepper on them, eat freely for dinner, and take a good 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 der them good and wholesome, boil them two hours-and a half, in hot wa ter, or bake them until they are per fectly dry, When cooked as above they will digest in three or four days. Turnips cannot be to highly estima ted as an article of food. They con tain a great deal of vegetable matter, | and also some water. They leave a ! pleasant fan well after they are eaten and like that agreeable and delicious 1 esculent, called onion, may be felt and tasted many days hence. Lager Beer, is a delectable refresh ! incut and is very pleasant to a refined • and cultivated, taste. The fastidious ' dutch arc said to be fond of it. A sub | stitutc nisv be made as follows : Take 1 ' old shoe soSr, burn it well and pulver ! ize it, add a handful of rhubarb and I ground ginger, equal portions of each, ; then pour in a quart of vinegar and wa -1 ter mix well, let it settle, drain it off, ■ and sweeten to your taste.
