What are occult cause*V They are causes unknown. mid invisi ble. The recognition of these Is not univer sal, and hence, even wise men ale found to deny nil phenomena which cannot he refered to acknowledged causes Among these secret causes, men lie-fore our time and age, reckoned the supernat ural, and attributed to it certain manifests tlona, which now form the illustrations of the spiritualistic philosophy. The- phenomena which e are an us tom to consider from the standing point of the present local agitation, are, by no means extraordinary or new ns such, since they have, in similar manifestations, fretted, frightened, puzzled and Instructed every generation of men. Yet have they lied from the eager pursuer, when bent on ascertaining their cause. Impenetrable silence, unlightcd darkness, awful mystery have rewarded all dilligcnce. in the weariness of such pursuit, the consciousness of what we know appeals small indeeil In comparison of the infinite beyond our grasp. It was Module* who said that all human knowledge is but a ijualilifd ignorance. The fart that phenomena existed and were constantly tuauifestiiig, whose causes were beyond science In the shadow realm caused Aristotle, doubtless to utter senten ees that remain to this dav uniuterpreted by his best commeutators.

In anollier column our readers will tin-.l a communication from “An old Citizen,’ I containing animadversions ml prop tui tions upon and in behalf of el'y matters. We arc willing to have this an.l ereiy matter of moment, freely and properly discussed in our columns Our paper is independent of parties an ! persons in all public interests, while we reserve to our selves the light to lead in that diicction most consonant with utw convictions of the people's prosperity and tlie eternal laws. We arc not at all afraid of weakening the present city government by proper discussion. On the contrary, we believe that the closest and most thorough sifting and investigation will result, and can only result in the triumphant vindication of our present Mayor's position and aim Any I one, who allotva himself to imagine thut the present Executive is disposed to he reckless in tho exercise of his prerogatives and the people's money, is guilty of an act of great injustice, and fails to compre hend Hie character of the gentlemen in question No citizen can he more ardent ly desirous of proper limitations, checks and hounds, laid down by law, than the present Mayor, ami, to our knowledge he lms exerted himself unceasingly to this end. We know also of some of the dil-* llcullics which have opposed his edmts in tills good direction, end if any g ! could he compassed, we should not In. bite to uncover them llut we believe in whole some friction. Free, temperate discussion of real issues must only strengthen public confidence in tho right, und tend to <ll, cover ami uproot the wrong. Let it then, proceed. Wo have refrained from a lengthened ciiticlsm of the recent exhibit, presented ! by a citizen his conclusions just | or unjust, has been looking up the figures. That exhibit was presented ill our own columns with pleasure, in will a'-o all similar papers lie from time to time. Wo take it for granted that every Intel * llgeut citizen is capable of judging Its tuer Us, und easily detecting its errors, and yet credit the writer with patriotic motives J Our conviction remains, and il possi i ble, is deepened, that the present Mayor, i if lie will serve, is the man over ail others ! within our know ledge for the high posi tion, and, we know that nine-tenths ol (lie I tax paying public would consider his de clinature a public calamity. “Ona man power” is it phrase as unlucky as it is vague, and seldom conveys a clear thought independently of n ding w hich spoils its force. Some other man, is still • one man," whose “power" would be his own inter pretation of a "programme,” which w ould of necessity bo more individual than aught else, so that cheap talk about “laws" char tered lights, “limitations" etc tie , would occupy the same front seat of order, eeon onty, an 1 defeated ambition. - The Burnt City. i From the World.)

In Arch Court, a few feet below tlic ter minatioii of John Tappan's grounds, was a library, old la hioued and quaint a* the locality in which it stood, partly ou one side of the lane—-il was uo more than that—and partly above the arch which spiatig across the street, giving it it* name Within the last few years, however, with the decease of the ancient residents cauie the removal of their descendants to Hack Hay, and the removal of ancient lauduiaiks themselves to the dilapidated Gehenna t>r contractors' rubbish Tall buildings arose upou their sites extending Iront W ashington street lo ltroud Granite usurped the place of gardens, and Men sard roofs rose far higher than the super seded mausou* ever durst aspire. These building* would remind oue somewhat of the Equitable in this city, though they were much les* ornate, being for the most part of a plain, unrelieved surface As the telegraph lias told, they were occupied principally by large and extensive dealers.

The City on the Downward Grade. Ml AM. tit APPLY Tltr. DRAKE Mr. Editor:— The financial statement > of Mr. It 15 Barfield presents much food for serious reflection to the tax payers of Macon, and should he studied carefully by the people, embracing as it does a state- ■ ment of the nctunl yearly accretion of the city debt from the end of the Collins' to and during the Obcar, and IlufT adminis trations. When the former went into power the debt of the city ha I been kip’ stiictly within the legal limit of two hun dred ami lifiy thousand dollars. By Mr ltiiifnM s statement in December, HGte when Mr. Collins left ollbe it had reached i 1 11, Jl7 G7e. Four years afterwards when Mr. Obcar left oflkeit hud reuebed $774,- 1H11.50 and on the .Tltti December, next it will hr sHti4,oo!>.s(J, with every tangible as-et of the city sold or otherwise dispos ed of, and the taxes inereased three fold I!! The yearly increase of debt being on an average nearly $77,(100 dollars, all of which together wittt tbe increase of taxes liaH been absorbed in Hie current expense, except 550,011(1 given to the Augusta Kail road, in addition to the original subscrip tion of 550.000, and so far a* the waiter knows without nuthmity of law. together w ith the amount spent on the Park, w hich j however can hardly he called an asset of j ihe city, an I the donation to the Mercer : University the benefits of which are still 1 In the clouds. The citizens of Macon who will look on this picture without prejudice may here see that the one man power a modified form.from that advocated by the present Mayor, has cost the city over 5(iM,000 dollars in eight years, be sides the tremendous amounts extorted from the people’s pocket* in double and tripple taxes, liseenses &c., aud during the same period, and at the same time they enn look nt the beggarly account of emp ty boxes that the results presents. When Legislature throws aside the re slauints of constitutional law and officers of corporation ignore the charters that de fine their powers, and Mayors take the law into their own hands, or at their discretion become a law unto themselves, snd in deliancc of all law spend or give away the public treasures in consideration pel Imps of a little cheap eclat or even from the best of motives there is an end of all responsi hie government, the one man pow er nut prerogative is assumed |so far as each in dividual can. two heads no longer consid ered better Ilian one, and time honored consultations of "commilteess" acting un der t lie restraints of law, and sworn duty, are derided and cast to the winds 1 ! With law for a guide if honest, the way-faring man though a fool will not err, but with only poor discretion guided by the cap rice of the moment to direct the step.they would lie "green" indeed who would trust it, and the community who entrusts its in tercets to that kind of direction or lets it so continue when discovered or aunonced has only itself to blume for the results, how ever damaging they may be As regards Macov, up to and during the war, her Mayors und Couucils never dreamed of exceeding their legal powers, and (he records of their proceedings will prove that though they did it in the regu lar business way, each acting in his own particular sphere, with committees not ignored, they yet succeeded with much smaller mentis in carrying on the city government with better results than lias I yet been attained by any administration that since the war has substituted for law, 1 its own discretion aud depended on en abling nets, that dated not see the liglit till passed to make their actions valid. This much, by way of comparison, is proper to he said in favor of those much abused administrations, hut it is also right at the sumo time, to assert that in those days the people by a healthy public opin ion, gave proper support and direction to tlie w hole, so tliut tlie Mayor or the Coun cils that sitettld have undertaken to spend or give away the public treasure at the into of hundreds of thousands without authority of law or in contravention of it. would have been drummed out of town to the Itmo of the rogue's march or been ! treated to strait-jackets and a visit to Dr. Green, and il is only the degeneracy nf tlie times and the people themselves that make such administration of their affairs possible. j Hut what of the future? Any talk of ! economy? Any reduction of expenses? Any lessening of the taxes or the licences? Nay. verily—on the contrary Hie pro ! gramme is to doublo the salaries, iucrcasu the expenses, keep the tsxesntthc highest notch possible, and increase the licenses, throw patriotism out of doors ami work only for the " pay " Tho programme on foot for making Hie eternal fortunes of the people of Macon, designates our former elforts iu developing Georgia by fairs ••littleness" and calls for gold by the ] thousand, "Money without stint in every ■ esse" is the word, and our citizens, the "business " men ol Macon say amen.' at the same time that llie> know that the city's notes or bonds aie bciug given to pay debts contracted by the hundred thous ands in the same cause at .13 I 3 per cent. discount as compared with the currency in w hich they must be paid. Trying to get out of debt on such a programme it must be said is not very cied.table to the ••business men ” of Macou, and if they do much of their own busim ** after the same style God help them. Hut is there uo remedy? Are vve doomed to continue m the dowuward road at a $77.1100 rate, more or less, year by year, at the mere discretion of any body* 1- there no limit? Are we ou the decline, rushing at headlong speed with breaks broken and no power to stop ? it seems so, though we seem quite happy; the engineer crowds on more steam, and. if he sounds the w histle at all, it is go a head , uo thought of takiug up until the fuel is exbaus ed. and that point now will soon be reached. Money gone, property gone, purses exhausted, eredit shaking—what then Break up the currency plates and make sure that uo more notes can be printed Let that b done at all t.aiarxt* . let the business men" and all others assist in that, and have striugent laws enacted enforcing a rigid economy in expenditure*. do away wiili mere discretion or the one man i power and try a prompt adlierance to .iritten laws once more, for short of these our little community is doomed and will oon be past redemption. I Do this aud I care uot who you put in the Mayor's chair or on the Aldermens’ benches, however "green " they may be, il only upright and patriotic, they will beat your over-smart people that can only be influenced by "pay ’’ all to prices and retrieve the fortunes of the city government by emiliuing its operations exclusively to the purposes for which it was created.
