To tlie People ofMol>uf
There seems to be considerable dis
satisfaction among the citizens of our
county against our Senator, Judge Wil
liam M. Reese, resulting in the action
he took in reference to resolution, intro
duced and passed in the House of Rep
resentatives, on the 23d inst., giving
McDuffie a Representative in the next
Legislature, and which resolution was
•defeated iu the Senate on the following
day, after an amendment had been of
fered by Judge Reese. As I have re-
cently seen him, and listened to his ver
sion of the matter, I think it dhe him
that I should ask our people not to cen
sure him, and to reserve their judge
ment upon his action until they shall
have heard directly from him. In the
next issue of the Journal there will be
an article from the Judge explaining
(and I believe satisfactorily) his conduct
iu that and other matters during the
last session of the Legislature.

One of the most interesting and valu
able of American biographies, is the
‘Life of Horace Greeley,’ by James Par
ton. The life of Mr. Greeley has been
closely interwoven with what has been
most commanding in American affairs
for more than a third of a century In
deed, this story of his life gives the
reader by no means an inadequate
glimpse of American history for the
past thirty years. It is the story of a
life that commenced in the greatest ob
scurity, and lias grown into the great
est eminence. It ha sheen a busy life, the
busiest, probably, in the land, crowded
with events, full of brave words and
generous deeds, and marked by peculiar
ities greater and characteristics stronger
than, peihaps, those of any other Amer
The subject, therefore, would Com
mand respectful and eager attention,
though handled by an unskillful pen.
But Mr. Parton is a master. He has
been well and widely known in our
literature. Lie is a keen and brilliant
essayist: an incisive and Bparkling wri
ter of English, and a careful and ex
haustive searcher after .facts. He does
not touch a pen to paper in the compo
sition of a book, till the entire field of
investigation has been explored, and
everything directly or indirectly bear
ing on his theme thoroughly digest
In preparing this work, he spent sev
eral months in visiting the town where
Mr. Greeley was born and the various
places where he subsequently lived,
collecting ail the information about his
early life that it was possible to obtain.
It is not, therefore, a hastily or illy con
trived book, labeled ‘Life of Greeley,’
but a work which will always be the
authoritative of the three-score years of
Mr. Greeley’s life that have already
passed into history. It would be a val
uable addition to any library at any time,
but, just now, its opportuneness gives
it added interest.
It is elegantly bound, well illustrated ;
and in consideration of the great popu
lar demand for the work it is sold for a
little more than half the ruling book
It is published by the National Pub
lishing Cos., of Atlanta, who want
agents in every County,
