The law governing the election for United
States Senator is laid down in the 14th volume o
the United States Statutes at Large, page 243. It
provides that both branches of the General As
semoly meet in their respective chambers at 12 m ,
and vote for United States Senator. The next
day at 12 m , they will meet in joint assembly to
ascertain who, if any, has a majority, tor until
then they are not supposed to know. The jour
nals of each house will then be read and if it. ap
pears that no one has a majority of ail ttie voteß
cast, they will proceed to vote viva voce one or
more times, and meet from day to day at 12 m.,
until a Senator is elected.
Hon. E. W. Beck, has introduced a bill in
Congress providing for the creution ot anew Ju
dicial District in Georgia, with the Courts to be
held in the city of Macon. The dispatch further
states that the bill has been (avorably considered
and will probably become a law. If it does pass,
the bonetits to the clry and the district will be
great. There will follow a handsome appropria
tion for public buildings; persons in the sur

nearer home, and in a community where they are

A correspondent, writing from Blackshcar
under date of the 18th, says: Two white men,
John Morrison and Townsend Miller, and a negro
men, John Robinson, were drowned last week
while rafting in St. 111a river. The particulars
are not known. It is only known that the hats,
coats and shoes of the white men were found on
the raft, and that they themselves are missing. No
vestige of the negro has been seen or heard of.
They were on separate rafts of timber eoiDg down
the river toward* “ Burnt Fort” to sell them. All
were hard-working good men. Morrison and
Robinson were old timber hauds, and were expe
rienced pilots on the river. Miller was a young
man, the eon of a widow woman, and not accus
tomed to the water, and was with Morrison to
learn the river. Robinson and the white men
were drowned at different ilaces in the river.
Mr. Lamar, editor ol the Savannah Advertiser,
writing from Atlanta, say* the removal of the
capital is actively and persistently canvassed in
Legislative circles, and appears to gather strength
from agitation. And he adds: To refer to it in
public subjects one having the fist (cot always
tidy) of some indignant Atlantese shook under
one’s nose. In this cold weather it is doubtful
which gets the worst of it nose or fist, but the
operation i* not pleasureable. There is no sense
in disguising the fact that this is a troublesome
question, and is likely to remain one until satis
factorily and definitely settled. The opinion is
general that Atlanta has not behaved well iu tbe
purchase of and payment for that shaky rattle
trap, known as the Opera House, aud the people
of middle, southern aud eastern Georgia are

The Cotton Tax Question.
The members of Congress from the cotton
growing States have been consulting fully in order
to secure unanimity of action upon a common
measure tor refunding the cotton tax. There are
several bills for this purpose now before Con
gress, one was proposed by Mr. McKee, and an
other by Mr. Mclntyre, of Georgia. Although
there has been a strong feeling in favor of refund
ing this tax, yet it has been insisted that the
interests of the producer were not sufficiently
provided for in the McKee bill. The conference
held on the 20th was harmonious, and some im
portant modifications were ordered to be made in
the McKee bill, which were in the interests of tbe
producers, and were accepted by the friends of that
measure. This unanimity of opinion gives a much
better chance for passing a bill at this session.
The bill as agreed on provide for a restitution
of the tax imposed after June 24th on raw cotton
for a commission of three persons to be appointed
by the President and confirmed by tbe Senate,
with power to examine, hear, and determine all
claims, and to direct payment of the same to the
persons legally entitled thereto, The most im
portant change is one made to section 1, providing
that the said restitution shall be made to the party
who actually paid the tax, whether paid by the
party himself, his agents or attorneys. Bection
fourth provides that the commission shall have
power to call on any officer of the Government for
books, papers and proofs under their control con
cerning said taxes. Where the original collector’s
receipts for the tax monies and books can’t be
produced, nor certified copies be bad, or such
books fail to show the payment of the tax claimed,
the commissioners may satisfy themselves by the
testimony of sworn witnesses. To this section
the conference directed the following provision to
be added: Provided such receipts and entries and
copies as aforesaid shall enure to the benefit of
the producer, unless it shall affirmatively appear
that some other party paid the said, tax, and has
not been repaid the same, which latter fact may
be established by the books of the party who paid
the tax so far as to b eprima facie evidence of the
same. When such books are lost or destroyed,
secondary evidence ol their contents may be in
The dispatches of the 20lhsay there is agrowing
feeling in Congress in favor of the justice of re
funding the tax, and among other leading men it
is now expected that the chairman of the Ways
and Means Committee (Mr. Dawes) will support

Alexander H. Stephens lives near Crawfordsville,
Ga., in a small and not very comfortable house,
which he dignifies as “Liberty Hall.” He is
charitable, and gives away all the excess he makes
after providing for himself; and he writes long
and abstract books, showing that nothing ought
to be as it is, and what might have been in case
something else happened twelve years before. He
is anxious to reappear in public life, and his re
cent visit to Atlanta was interpreted by Governor
Smith’s friends to be an electioneering campaign
for the United States Senate. As I rode past
Crawfordsville a fat Georgia boy, who looked
if he had been eating chickens all his life, pointed
out the direction to Stephens’ house, and 6aid:
