The sm of the last Legisla lure of Georgia was that it tailed to pass a well digested election law—a law which, while it gave the most ample protection to the honest voter of every class, should make frauds upon the Sutlragc dililcttlt, if not impossible. The law should require a legist ration before every election. The voter. before being admitted to registry, should lie required to establish liis legal light to vole to tlie N.listaciiou ot the board—should show that he is a resident of age—and has complied with all the constitutional and legal requirements which enter into the qualifications of the voter. When In is admitted to registry he should he foluisbed with a certltlcate there, and upon delivering to this to the inspectors ol election he should la' permit ted to vote without question The ceitili • ate should 1* held by the ius; ect ns and tiled away with the letonis ot eleeliou. In addition to this the law should pre scribe uniformity iu si/e and color of priuted ballots, so as to leave the voter free trout intimidation or influence in the ever i iso of the sutfrage In oilier words, it should not be allowed by any sluqie. color or deslgu to la tray the character of the t otr. These arc just and equitable provisions < sM-uiial to the purity of the franchise in i his State—and the press and peoide should insist upon their being embodied with all others essentia) to a jierfeetlv orderly and lair election, iu a general and w ell digested Mamie on that subject vik’itt: on a bi:*ii:k. This is from our agricultural neighbor. the Telegraph and Messenger S MKHCIt.BHS CASTKIATIO.N. We have received, from an esteemed correspondent un able and most withering communication reviewing tin- political course of a certain liatlical editor i-i this Htate. That worthy is literally flayed alive, and pounded into atoms, between the up|M-r and nelher millstone of the ponderous arguments ot an incensed and virtuous Democrat. The arraignment is based upon some of the wilt'en utterance* of ttic iifo.esaid editoi, which the writer declares to he without foundation and ma in iously untrue. As the election is over and all discus sion is now bootless, and can only Increase the ascerbities of the hour, we have deem ed it beat to withhold the article of mil irate frleml, which can do no manner ol good, but might lend to an endless news paper fusillade. For the same reason we suppressed on a recent occasion arasping criticism u|Mui ono of the productions ot an individual who also edits a paper, he licving that such animadversions, when couched in words so severe and hitter, had better not sec the light. Our motto is, let disgruntled editors mid others pitch in and abuse us as tlu-y wi' 1 . we only smile ul their impotent elToits and are not in the least disconcerted thereby Our urmur is proof against these missives, and ten to one, they will recoil and w ound the hand that aped them. Ho we say, hold friend, and let thine enemy go. The world is wide umaigh for both he und I hoc. We have heard of the worthy who put the candle into bed and blew himself out, but he was a beggarly genius compared with the spirit of the übovo editorial. Now, we do not care a brass button from the coal of a Yankee lieutenant of marines, for the radical rascal who, according to the Telegraph Is (figuratively) "flayed alive nml pounded into atoms," after the milli ner of poor old Mr Adam Hekoli, ol pre cious Telegraph memory—not a button, as we said. but we would spend a picayune or so, to see that "rasping criticism upon one of the productions of an individual who also edits a paper." That must be brother Fitch, of the tw ink ling Star, of the village of Grifihl, since, we have learned from the Telegraph’s own columns Hint lie has taken advantage of its mild mannered virtue. For shame, Fitch! Of course the suppressed "rasping" arti cles were not conceived in tlie Telegraph oil Ice !

(Sato rare -curse my fate . I'm just twen ty minutes too late.) Oh! Ye butchers, retribution will come. I pity you I can afford to pity you, for wlmt would you say should you catch mo at that.

In the days of trial, w hen life is very dear to us, and those we love the most lie dead ami sltcal by our side, who then shall wo look to but to the living God for consolation ’ We praise and bless Tliee that Thou hast made this known to us, that Thou art ever ready to hear the faintest cry, nml more ready to give good gills to those that u<k Then than earthly parents to their chil dren.

"POPULAR AMUSEMENTS'' The Ball-Room and the Theatre—Lec ture by Rev. R. A. Holland. From tie- Ml-sourl Republican, Nov. 4.) Kcv It A. Holland last night delivered a lecture In Bt. tie urge's church, corner of Locust and Seventh streets, to a very large audience, on the subject of- Popular Amusements.” Taking for It's text 1 lie 'Jlli verse of the I Itli chapter of Kccicsias- U:h, commencing with the words, "llejoice O young man in lliy youth,” etc., the rev erend lecturer remarked that the subject of his lecture was a very sensitive one. Whenever the subject of -popular amuse ments” i • approached with a view of point ing out the moral or immoral tendencies involved,, the fashionable world threaten to cry out. Respectable Christians are willing that gambling, intemperance and their kindred vices should be flogged for their naughtiness, hut Christians may claim immunity from censure in going to the theatre, or engaging in the very respecta ble pastime of whirling or tripping around the hall room locked iu the sexual em brace ol Hie waltz, whose immorality is upheld when accompanied by the be witching strains of inspiring music These rcspecUhle ninusemeuts must not tie touched. This was not, however, the Christian morality taught by the Divine Master. It was not the Christianity of St. Chrysostom, who emptiej the theutres of Constantinople by his homilies The metaphysics of Christianity Hereof no value except ns they inspire a godly and pure life. It is the business of Chris tianity to uiukc men lidler, to till their hearts with love for all that is beautiful and holy. Christ, the perfect model of all the virtues, is in the world. lie is not dead and in I lie sepulchre, that we should he lamenting liis absence, and proclaiming to the world from the pulpit un uccount of I his extinct miracles. The pulpit lias been playing llio part of ventriloquist, merely giving tlie faint echo of Christianity as it comes to us from a remote age instead of preaching a living Christ, w ho apenka to us not from a period long past, but from ttie present as a living oracle, pointing out the way which leuds to happiness in this life and eternal felici ty in the life to come. Christianity does not condemn rational emjoymeut, There is iu man a spirit of fun which, if not controlled, will develop itself in immoral action. The speaker referred to the spirit of luu iu the child. It was a necessity of his na ture that this spirit slioubl have ample scope for development. It could not be repressed without a violation of the laws j of his being. It must, however, wo cou ! trolled within inuocorit and proper clian nels. At no period of English history hud amusements become so licentious as under the Restoration. Lord Macaulay lias told us that this ago tolerated amusements w hich no other ago would have permitted. The Fui'itana thought it a siu to laugh, and sanctity to tulk through the nose. They regarded fun as the wild unticsof dia bolism hi it any wonder that when the restraints which Puritanism imposed upon society were removed that people should bound into the opposite extreme v The violent reaction that lollowed the removal of unnatural restraints lead the fashionable world. In their amusements to make a mockery of virtue and religion, and satirize and ridicule everything that ennobled and dignified human life. We may conceive of a world made upon purely utilitarian principliea—a world in which every substance, every object and every element cottlTl only minister to the material wants ofllio world upon diflerent principles. For every stem that bore fruit to satisfy the cravings of hunger, there were a thousand stems decorated with flowers and foliiage, presenting to the eye of man innumerable objects of beauty in countless forms and colors For every mountain that contained the ores necessa ry for tire comfort of civilized man, there were numerous mountain chains destitute of every elementof material wealth, whose lolly peaks seem specially designed to give man uu idea of the perpetual presence of the sublime After citing other illustra tions of a similar character the reverend lectui or continued Thus wc see the guy, the beautiful, the sublime, all around u>, in intluitc excess over the merely useful. Religion gives nor full consent to enjoy this beautiful world in which we live. It commands us to rejoice and be merry. It does not teach us the puritanic idea of rq, guiding the voice of iunocent mirth as the chuckle of floods, or to look upon long faced ness us the symbol of Christianity. We may use but not abuse every iaculty which God lias given us for iunocent en joyment It is no argument against any amusement that it is liable to perversion. Hating may become a gluttony, sleep may become sloth, and religion, which is de signed to fill the soul with the holiest de sires, may become fanaticism. l’totcslantisiu becomes papacy when it undertakes to anathematize and place un der ban rational amusements and inno cent recreation. Where, then, is the dis tinction between the moral and the guilty “ It was no sin to shove a ball or cross a cue upon a billiard table, but when this was accompanied with the evil associa tions and sinful practices of the bar room it ceased to be an icnoceut amusement. It was no sin to trip tho light fantastic toe to the accompauiiuent of delightful music, but wlteu this amusement is accom panied witli the guilty embrace, which ex cites unholy desires, and is practiced to kindle the passion of sensuality, it can no longer be defended as an innocent amuse ment. The true lest in determining what kind of amusements we may not engage in is that w e shall tint violate the laws of mor ality. Tito lecturer next proceeded to apply this test to the drama, the objectionable features of which he portrayed in vivid colors. He did not condemn all dramatic w r. tings as immoral, but those plays which weie unexceptionable, which were ele vated in tone and calculated to inspire none but a pure morality were very diffi cult to present in such a manner as to meet with popular favor There w ere not more than two or three actor- iti the country who could impeisouate Hamlet in such a inau ncr as to make the play a success In or der to make money, stage managers are compelled to place upon the stage low comedies, and such plays as excite the baser passions, the presentation ot which d.a< not ici|uitv extraordinary genius Iu almost every exhibition of dramatic art the spectator may see obscenities iu dress and he'ar expressions which suggest impure thoughts. It is only upon very rare oc casions that the best aud purest produe lions ot the great masters at the drama are presentee). 1 bus from the very commencement of the drama in Gre>ece and Home the thea tre’ lias had a degrading and immoral in fluence. There has beou no age of gold in the history of the theatre, but a contin ued era of mud. The theatre has beeu the sewer of time In proof of this prope>sition the lecturer cited an eloqueut characterization of the theatre from a French skeptic. The speaker next spoke of the associa tions of the theatre which were evil, lie thought all attempts to reform the theatre would prove futile so long us men love money more than decency and virtue. The subject pf dancing as an amuse ment was next considered. He would not attempt to describe the character of the dance to which he objected, but his si lence was the silence of bashfulness and not of assent. He proceeded to depict in vivid colors the evil consequences of the excitement and dissipation of the ball room, and closed with an eloquent peroration, in which he commended the condition of those who had discovered that happiness was within themselves, und was not dependent upon artificial stimulants or guilty pleasures. An Actor Who Enoch Ardens Better Than Adanu. From tliu New Orleans Times, 28th. j Twcuty years ago there was known- to the American stage a Mr. X , an actor of considerable local celebrity in New York and Boston, and many there are yet in those cities who recollect him as an artist of more than average ability. In the’ heyday of his years and fame he married a beautiful actress, but their marital hap piness was short lived, tor failing to find iu each other's companionship the fulfill ment of hope's bright visions, they parted, he remaining in the old field of his labors, while she wandered through the land, gaining much success as an exponent of the "horse ” drama, but through all those years they never met nor knew the one that the other still lived, except as the knowledge was borne by the world’s current history. Five years ago the lady appeared at the St. Chailcs thea tre, in this city as "Mazeppn,” under the name of , when one night, while milk ing the “run” lashed to her steed, she met with a severe accident, resulting in her immediate withdrawal from the stage from which time she faded out of exist, dice ; nothing was known or heard of her, and her husband, in common with many, thought her dead. Meanwhile the fortune of X , varying as ever are the fortunes of actors, had led him, now grown old, to join Mr. Aiken's company, finally bringing up in New Orleans Monday last, on which day, soon after his arrival, he started out for a walk. Wandering through the streets of the Third District, he came upon the figure of a woman standing in the door-way of a cigar store. Upon her features he gazed as upon one who awakened recollections of other days, lie looked again, and, as if by. magic, lie recognized the wife of his early years With the revelation, there rushed through liis mind a host of memories, ami iu an instant lie had fainted away dead on the banquoltc. lie was conveyed to his hotel, and upon his recovery immediately in stituted innuirics, whicli revealed to him that after her accident she had married, and was then living with her second bus baud. Of course, she knew of his presence here, but he had made to her no sign, and both, so strangely met, will still journey on apart, to meet again—never, perhaps, this side of eternity. VIA Kit 111 l>.
