New Yoke, October 18.—A Newport special says that the officers of the revenue seized a large lot of cigars smuggled into the country from Havana on the schooner pioneer, ot New London, Connecticut — not the Cuban Pioneer. Deputy Sheriff Judsou Jarvis returned to the sheriff's office at 11 o'clock to-day, after a night's fruitless search for Wiiliam M. Tweed. It is new believed that Twoed has left the city. A number of cigar manufacturers have acceded to the demands of their workmen for an increase from one to five dollars on every one thousand. Several houses have suspended operations because of the de mand. The friends of Tweed stated at the sheriffs office to-day that he had gone out of the city on private business, but would appear with his bail to-morrow or Mon day. Mayor Hall gave bail to-day to answer the charge of official neglect against him. $140,000 have been ordered by the Board of Apportionment to be divided among a number of charitable institutions Wm. T. Havetneyer in a letter to be published to-morrow, says it would be in judicious for him to accept the reform nomination, in view of the apathy of the people. Patrick Caulfield, on the recruiting staff of the regular army, went to the residence of one Allen, a cloakmaker, 304 Tenth Avenue, last evening, and showed Mrs. Allen what purported to be an order from Washington to arrest her husband, saying he had been sent by Lieut. Dougherty of the first infantry. Mrs. Allen caused Caulfield's arrest, and he was fined SIOO, and he was locked up in default of SSOO bond for good behaivor. Stbacusk, October 18-—The Straight outs organized a State Committee with Charles P. Sykes as Presideot, and re solved to press forward the Louisville nomination. Auburn, October 18. —The manuscript of the original draft of Seward’s book was entirely completed sometime since. At the time of his death, Seward had finished the revision of about two-thirds of it. This revision will be at once taken up and completed by his son Fiederick and his adopted daughter, Miss Risely Seward. WASHINGTON. The Condition of the Cotton Crop—Report of the Agritnltnral Bureau, etc. etc. Washington, October 18.—The follow ing is the synopsis of the statisticians of the Department of Agriculture, upon the condition of cotton in October. The cotton prospects have undergone serious changes since the September re port. The weather lias been generally favorable for picking. No violent storms are reported, and the drouth has not pre vailed. The rain fall in nearly all the cotton States exceeded two inches in Sep tember, Florida alone reporting fully four inches and Tennessee three. The devastations of the catterpillar have extended further North, even to North Carolina, and have involved the top crop partially, and in many places wholly. The influence of the drouth in the later summer months, has been cumulative in its effects and exhausted vitality is more apparent than in September ; yet there are districts which report exemption from this premature decay, and promise en hanced results. The effect of fertilizer is advancing the crop ia the Atlantic States. The continued effort of the worm is shortening the season of the growth, and will greatly hasten the close of the pick ing. In some places the crop is already gathered, and in many others the fields will be clean-early in- November. The general average of. condition is re duced from 91, in the first week of Sep tember, to 82 in October. In October last vear the average was 76, which was a ena- terial reduction from that of the present month. It will be seen that the condi tion is still placed higer tha . in last, year’s report for October, while the area, according to our Juno returns, was 13 per cent, greater. The State averages are as follows : Vir ginia 87 ; North Caroliua 90 ; Si aith Car olina 86 ; Florida 75 ; Georgia 88 ; Ala bama 82; Mississippi 78; Louisiana 72 ; Texas 85 ; Arkansas 75 ; Tennessee 90 ; The local disparity existing in the con dition of cotton is perhaps more marked marked than usual. Of the two counties in Alabama producing most largely, both together yielding one-ninth of the cotton in the State. Montgomery reports one hun dred and Dallas fifty. In Georgia, Daw son (?) the first in amount of production, returns one hundred, while Sumter and Lee, both large producers.give only sixty six. In Mississippi a few prominent coun ties report a high condition—Washington sixty-six. Madison sixty-six. Warren sixty live, and Hinds sixty, while Maxwell and Claiborne return one hundred. John A. Whitcmore lias been appointed Postmaster at Sumter, S. C. The ballances in the United States Trea ury, at the close of business to-day, were: Currency, $5,000,000; coin, $77,- 500,000 ; coin, certificates, $24,500,000. PENNSILVAIHA. Fiuaiu'ial Moveinrnl. Irish Catholic Benevolent Union. Philadelphia. October 18.—At an in formal meeting of tho merchants, held to day, the Philadelphia Chamber of Com merce adopted the following resolution : Resolved, That a meeting of the mer chants, manufacturers and bankers of Phil adelphia, be held on the 21st, at the Cham ber of Commerce, to consider tho expedi ency of petitioning Secretary Boutwell to relieve the money market by purchasing $44,000,000 dollars of interest-bearing debt, with a like amount of legal tenders retired by Secretary McCullough. In the Irish Catholic Benevolent Union convention to day, a debate occurred on the Constitutional amendment to strike out the word “Irish’ from the name of the Asssociation. It was advocated by Col. Kilgore, of Virginia, and opposed by Fathers McCatferey and Rooney. It finally stood, yeas 57, nays 85, and the proposition was defeated. CANADA. An Equine Epidemic Disease. Toronto, Canada. October 18.—The epidemic among the horses has now ex tended throughout the Dominion, se riously interrupting the business of the country. The street cars in Montreal have stopped running. In their stables more than three hundred horses are sick Farm ers in the country are unable to bring their grain to market. The disease is not often fatal, but recovery is Blow. TENNESSEE. Homicide. Memphis, Tknn., October 18.—Lewis Holmes and J. F. Eubanks, both planters of Hardeman county, had a diffic ity yes terday, during which the latter struck the former over the head with a stick of wood, from the effects of which he died soon af terwards. ITIAKYEAND. Death of a Catholic Biahop. Baltimore, October 18.—The Kt. Rev. Michael O’Connor, formerly Bishop of Pittsburg, died this morning at Woodstock College, near this city. HISSOVHI. Sale of a Newspaper. St. Louis, October 18.—Two-thirds of the Evening Dispatch of this city was sold by W. H. McHenry to Robt. Barclay ou a basis of $120,000 for the whole paper. Barclay previously owned one-third of the paper. Worthy of Imitation. —We desire to commend to farmers and employers gen erally the example of a well known citi zen of this county, Learning that some of the negroes in his employ had voted the Democratic ticket at the recent election, he went home and talked to them after the following fashion : “You have shown by your votes that your consideryour interest in politics the same as mine; and by fol lowing my advice you have proved that you want to promote my interest as well as your own. I will give each of you five acres of my best land next year, and will help you tocnltivate it.” This shows the right spirit. Whcu a negro can muster up enough moral cour age, (and it takes a great deal) to leave the Radical party and vote with the whites, the latter ought to show apprecia tion of it. —Perry Journal. Inckhdiarism. —An attempt was made to burn the town Sunday night last. The store of Mr. Jno. R. Ware was fired with- j in. by placing balls, saturated with kero sene, on and under the shelving of the store. It was luckily discovered before much damage was done. The entrance was made from a side door which was found unlocked. A few moments more and a whole block, perhaps, of stores would have been consumed. Our city authorities had better employ extra police The perpetrators have not been discover ed.—LaGrange Reporter. Cotton. —The cotton crop in this coun ty promises now to be much better than was expected a month or two ago ; taken as a whole, there will be a fair average crop made in the county. The staple is opening very fast—faster than is usual, be cause so much of the foliage has been stripped off by the caterpillars—aud the farmers are employing every available freedman to pick it out in a hurry. —Perry \ Journal. It is a notable fact that more pocket picking is done at Greeleyite than Repub lican meetings. In fact, there i> none of this at the latter. —Uarrieburg (Pi ) Jour nal. Correct. Only the honest, substantial citizens, as a rule, get their pockets picked. Thieves don’t steal from oue another.— Bot ' ton Pott. MACON, OA., SATURDAY, OCTOBER It), 1872. Chi< nge of Schedule.

TO BE LEFT TO THE DECISION OF THE FARMEBS. rXMIE question of caterpillars and its terrible JL destruction of the llceey staple having, like the great flood of old, abated, a still more momentous question involves especial consid eration at the hands of the farmers. For many long years E. Isaacs haß catered to the wants of the traveling public; and to the farmers, the very bone and sinew of our beloved South, be has taken special pains to make them feel at home while in the city. His tables are tilled and the usual “allowancing” Is not “allowa ble.” Indeed you get what you call for and that without stint. Now the'question is: Will tße Farmers Support Him ? This question is propounded with the confi deuce that will be announced with that little but expressive inonosyl&blc which is so famil iar with vourit people enamored of each '-thcr —yes ! The >turdy farmers knows. too well the comfort that await him at the ISAACS HOUSE. To answer otherwise than affirmatively to the above mentioned question. While on the subject Mr. Isaacs wishea to say that his p itronage ha* so increased as to compel him ti provide more ample accommo tions, and thshe has leaned large and airy rooms of Hu Hs new building adjoining his own.
