£iT An appeal is made to Georgians for aid to

not be passed by unheard and unheeded by our citi
zens. The appeal is to you, dear reader ; will you
give a mite to th ; s cause? Many of our citizens
have already generously given the email sum asked

this small sum. The list will be found at Col. It. II
Bush's office, where any one who wishes may depos

£tT The attention of the Town Commissioners
is most and exceedingly respectfully called to the
bad condition of the public well near the railroad.
Prom some cause the water in this well has become
stagnant, and cannot be used for any purpose.—
The town treasury w*as run to put a pump in the
well (the second, we believe that has been put into
it in very little over a years time.) and we suppose
it is somebody’s duty to give it sufficient atten
tion to keep it in order—and that somebody is
surely those who have accepted the trust of looking
after the interests of the town. We hope our
town fathers will have this matter attended to at
once, and thereby deserve the grateful thanks of
their little commonwealth.
irzT The dog-killing season is now upon us in
full sweep, our town marshal—armed with a
double death dealing machine, of the best “Lon
don Twist” patten? and manufacture, walks brave
ly up and down in seorch all the little snarling,
snapping, dirty pets inside the 1 ‘dead line, and woe
betide the diminutive barking nuisance that comes
under his eagle-eye minus the collar insigna of the
“freedom of the city” for one more year. Many
of these pets have taken their last looi at earth,
and have gone to that pine thicket “from whence
no dog returns.” So far, well; and if wo had the
authority, we would arm our marshal “cap-4-pie
or in any other modem appored style, and widen
the lines of his jurisdiction on every side to where
old ocean’s tide kisses the shore. But we, most
humbly suggest that when “the dog is dead, and
his hoarse bark and vagabond rambling have forev
er ceased to annoy, that all enmity cease against
the beast, and that he be accorded a burial that
he may peacefully sleep on—undisturbed and un
disturbing. Philosophically speaking, the efluvia
arising from the putrifying carcasses of defunct
quadrupeds is extremely oppressive to the delicate
olfactories of the good and gentle pedestrians as
they perambulate the beautiful ways of our bor
ough, with sweet maidens hanging so lovingly upon
their arms, in the evening tide when the soft zeph
yrs fan the manly brow and kiss the maiden s fair
cheek. Such an incompatible combination of
things often act inflammably upon some tempers,
and cause them to think cuss words. “Hear me
for my cause,” etc.
Cruelty. —A few days since Eliza Culpepper,
(cob), an old woman, and wife of Dock Culpepper,
living at Mr. Walker’s, a few miles from this place,
suddenly “shuffled of her mortal coil,” and was
duly consigned to her last resting place—planted.
Peculiar circumstances, and known brutal teat
ment, caused the neighbors to believe that her
husband was instrumental in too suddenly snapping
the brittle thread of life, possibly to be freed from
the golden matrimony that held him with
too strong a grasp, and accordingly the services of
the Grand High Coroner of the county were in
voked to investigate the matter. Therefore, a ju
ry was summoned, the body of said lamented de
ceased exhumed, and aroud it sat the jury in sol
emn inquest. Several witnesses were examined,
and sufficient testimony elicited to prove that old
Dock had used great cruelty towards his wife, but
not sufficient in the opinion of the jury to produce
death. It was also proved that Dock had been play
ing the role of M. D., and physicing his wife with
poisonous decoctions of stramonium and poke root,
and very probably other medicines “purely vege
table.” The examination ended, and the jury re
turned a verdict in accordance with the above facts,
and the not inconsolable husband left to go and
choose some other dusky damsel to walk by his
side through the devious paths of life until he be
comes tired of her company, when he will doubt
less apply his scientific knowledge and send her to
join that other cherub that has just taken her de
parture for the “happy land of Canaan.”
We learn that there aro several old negroes in
this county who claim to bo “doctun in sa'eu&n
mcdicina?, 1 ' and if their practice should prevail,
they will no doubt send the ethereal organizations
of many of their dark bretheren across the dread
ed river Styx.
