W II West colt, of llds city, whilst returning in a Mini 11 boat from a ducking excursion down tin river yesterday morning, was attracted by cries for assistance at a short distance from him. Turning In the direction of the voices, he saw four colored men in a flat, w hich laid sunk until they were waste deep in water. The Captain's bout being too small, lie w ent to Screven’s ferry for assistance, and soon landed them safely at that place The captain showed us his lingers, six of which lmd been frost bitten by exposure in his efforts to save them. He once before saved the life of a colored hoy on the Savannah river, and it is a curious coincidence that his own life was saved in the same way by a colored man.—Savan nah Adxertirer, 1 2th. The time of sale of the Winchester and Alabama and McMinnville and Manches ter roads lias been postponed from Decem ber 31, 1874, to February I, 1873 —thirty- one days. This results from the fact that there was a "mistake in the terms of sale.” On Hie day of purchase, the purchaser will have to pay seventy-five thousand dollars in bonds of the State of Tennessee, with coupons on and uftcr January I, 171, attached, and will have to give bond for a compliance with the terms of the original contract "to the extent of the purchaser’s bid ” —NtuJmlle Banner, 1 3th. The number of grain and molasses dis tilleries in operation on the first of No vember last was five hundred and six, with a capacity of two hundred and twenty eight thousand four hundred and seventy gallons daily ; the whole number in oper ation on the first instant was two hundred and thirty-six, with a daily capacity of two hundred and sixty-two thousand three hundred and forty-three gallons—a daily increase in November of thirty-three thousand eight hundred and seventy-three gallons. This increase is the natural re sult of the autumn harvests. Imtoutant to Cotton Mwuiiams. — We. learn that the Postmaster General, w ho has been consulted on the subject, has de cided that the practice which lias existed among cotton merchants of writing tlic qualities on their cotton samples sent through the mail, with the address, is a violation of the law. It is admissible however to denominate the grade on the outside of the package by figures. The decision will be published in the Decem ber number of the Postoffice Gazette, which it ill be used about the first proximo. Mr. Greeley says in a letter to the Rev. J. M. Austin : "1 believe the moral character formed In this life will be that in which wc shall awake in the fife to come, and that many die so deeply stained and tainted hy lives of transgression and depravity, that a tedious and painful dis cipline must precede and prepare l’or their admission to the realms of eternal purity and bliss " The new Legislature of Texas consists of 17 Democrats and 13 Radicals. Of the Democrats, eight held over, and nine were elected in November; of the Radicals, ten held over, and only three were elected last month. The House is composed of about seventy Democrats and twenty Radicals— all elected in November. The Legislature w ill meet on Hie 14th of January. ANAOCNCUItICIVI’S. 1 UK friends of Mb. Li.
