The Postal Telegraph.
}[et*rt. Editors : In your issne of yesterday
sr ed an editorial upon the Postal Telegraph
^received the favorable consideration
1 ' j^nate, and is now being considered by a
“ " of seven in the lower House, and
\7j,ction you regnrd, very properly in the
voo view it, as another stride towards “par-
permit me to call your attention to the fact
that the preset Telegraph system of America
. 8D(1 ]]ns been since the close of the war,
nothing more than an instrument of usurpation
£nd despotism. Did it never occur to jon
.bowel* the owners of four-fifths of the Tele-
h jj n4S in tho United States, and what
Ctv owned all of the lines throughout the en
tire South, and I may say, in the West also?
are they not a few capitalists at the North and
West who control this vast amount of stock,
which places this grand machinery of commu
nication in the hands of a few of the most radi
cal extremists known to the country ? Is not
He monopoly so extensive and powerful as to
annihilate any other system of lines that the
Sonth might originate and construct?
Were there not for some time after tho war,
United States military men stationed in the im
portant offices throughout the South for the
purpose of keeping up a governmental surveil
lance over all dispatches, aye, and even now,
sirs, is fhore not government cypher dispatches,
the keys to which are only in the possession of
officials associated with the Slander Mill at At
lanta, passing between that point and the head
of the “Agency” that mako tho wires groan un
der the burden of their ba.*e fabrications ? It is a
xt'.i known fact that tho Government has pri
ority over all other d:sp.»'ches when and wher
ever they please.
If this state of things exists, why not let the
Government have a Telegraph de jure as well
ga it fiieto. There is another subject of im
portance on the matter in which the people of
the South are inrerested, and peculiarly so at
this time. Should a Governmental Telegraph
system be adopted it is proposed to rednee the
tariff of charges so ns to place rapid communi
cation in the reach of all persons. Daring the
administration of tho late honored Elam Alex
ander, President of a Southern telegraph, dis
patches were sent from Macon to Columbus for
25 cents; to Savannah for 35 cents; to New
York for §1 56; to New Orleans for §1. Mr.
Alexander, with but one or two wires from the
East and West, made a dividend of 6 per cent.
Xow, we have some half dozen wires with in-
cleased business and increased charges—the
profits all going nothward to the support of a par
ty who are in support of “partisan despotism”
to far as it don't affect their telegraph receipts
(trough their monopoly.
What do our business men pay for dispatches
now? Let them compare their records of 1850
to1S54 with their telegraph bills of 18G9 and
1870, and I think yon will find a very large class
of Southern men who will differ in your views.
The main question is: “Yankee monopoly with
its oppressive tariff, supported by the Govern
ment ; or the Government solus, for the benefit
of the people.” “Stage Coach ”
Hail lor Klodgcit, If True.
Under date of January 27tb, the special
Washington correspondent of the New York
Times, telegraphs that paper as follows:
There is an apparent misapprehension in
some quarters as to the future action of the
Georgia Legislature regarding tho election of
Senators. It seems to be taken for granted that
the law of Congress contemplated such action.
Nothing is farther from the fact—and this is so
understood by the President and by a majority
of the Senate. The law never contemplated an
invalidation of all the action of the Georgia
Legislature as organized by General Meade; it
only provided for the correction of tho error
made in expelling rightfully elected members in
violation of the Fourteenth Amendment of the
Constitution. When this is fully done, the ob
ject of the law is accomplished. And if Messrs.
Hill and Miller, tho Senators elect, present
themselves they will doubtless be sworn in, pro
vided they can qualify in other respects.
We shall soon see bow much this ear wig
knows; but we’ll wager something handsome
he is mistaken. Recrgifs of tho Blodgett stamp
are beginning to bo needed. Ferry, Stewart,
Trumbull, and even Nevada Nye are showing
agM of weakening stomachs.
Well make another bet, too. That if Blod
gett gets in; ho will manage to get on the Com
mittee on Claims.
Wendell Phillips’ Last Demand,
At the recent anti-slavery meeting in Boston,
Phillips, always only a little in advance of tie
Radical party for whom he furnishes the brains,
marked out their policy as follows. Wo only
hope that when these “ forty acres” come to be
staked off Phillips will head the surveying party:
The negro stood, as far as the law could make
him, on a level of civil and political equality
with the whites. Much more, however, remained
to be done to put him on a real equality. He
wished the negro to bo compensated with such
* share of woalth which had been plundered
from him as would really put him on a level of
equality. They owed the negro one-seventh
part of the wealth of the country. Without land
the black man was helpless in the hands of tbe
property-holders, and tho ballot ia his hands
would prove, nndeT such circumstances, merely
* strength to the Conservative party.
GIVE HIM HIS SHAKE.
He proposed, therefore, that Congress should
secure to tho freedman forty acres of land, and
one thousand dollars to start himself on it. They
bad as yet given him nothing but his bare body,
reduced below the level of culture, demoralized
by years of toil, and naked him to go to work on
bis own account while he saw bis family starv
ing, and then told him to be sure to vote the
Republican ticket. ' He would not leave tho
black race there, but would devote the rest of
his life, chiefly to rousing the white race to a
sense of justice. He hold that every wbito man
on the continent who had seven doUars of his
own, owed one to his next door negro neighbor.
On any principle of justice,a share of the wealth
belonged to him. ^
The Negeo Exodus thou Virginia.—The
Richmond Dispatch says the fanners of South-
side Virginia, apprehend very serious results if
the negro exodus from that section continues.
The number of emigrants increases daily.
From Pittsylvania county there nre semi-week
ly shipments, and the colonies average perhaps
two| hundred persons, a large proportion of
whom are able-bodied, laboring men or hearty
women. Mecklenburg, Charlotte, Halifax,
Franklin, Prince Edward and Lunenburg, have
all been more or less depleted, and some farm
ers report that all their hands have deserted.
The worst of it is that a furore has taken pos
session of the blacks, and emigration is becom
ing almost as popnlar as “leaving the old place'
was just after the war.
Hemboed Robbed.—On Friday evening last a
raeak thief entered the residence of Mr. H. T.
Hembold, at No. 15G West Fourteenth street,
while the family were at dinner, and proceeding
to n room in the second story, broke open a bu
reau drawer with a jimmy and stole the follow-
Ia .8 articles: One black enameled watch, set
with diamonds, $500; one necklace, $250 ; two
sleeve-buttons, jet and diamonds, 300; one
fiager-rin, opal centre, surrounded by diamonds,
v500; one breast-pin, opal and diamonds, $300;
°ne small finger-ring, $150; one set cor-
ear-rings, and breast-pin, 100 dollars; hand
kerchief ring, $25. In addition to tho above
articles, there wore two watch chains, one long
and ouo lady's, with black eiarueled slides. Tho
thieves missed about $700 worth of jewelry in
another part of the bureau. How they gained
accefes to the house is unknown,'but it is more
man probable they used false keys.—New York
Speech of Senator Sawyer on the Cur*
From the Congressional Globe.']
_Tne Senate resumed the consideration of the
bill (S. No. 878) to provide a national currency
of coin notes and to equalize the distribution of
circulating notes, the pending question being
on the amendment of Mr. Morton, to strike out
“$45,000,000,” in line three of the first section,
and insert “$52,000,000," so as to read—“that
$52,000,000 in note3 for circulation may be
issued to national banking associations,” etc.
Mr. Sawyer—Mr. President, I have listened
to this debate with a great deal of attention and
with great satisfaction. I do not think the bill
before tho Senate is all that could be desired,
tut I think with some of the amendments which
lave been proposed, it wHl go far toward reliev
ing the wants of the portions of the country
which are without their fair proportion of the
circulation of the national banks. At the last
session tho biU which passed tho Senate pro
posed to take $30,000,000 of circulation from
those States which had an excess of national
bank circulation and distribute it to those that
had less than their proportion. I voted for that
bill then, although it was said that by voting for
it we were doing a great injustice to certain
States. I did not then perceive that we were
doing injustice to anybody, and I confess that I
must ask pardon if roy eyes are no clearer to
I cannot forget that about 18C0 the circulation
of all the banks in the United States was only
about two hundred and two million doUars, and
that at that time the three States which are
most largely in excess in this matter of national
bank circulation, namely, Massachusetts, Rhode
Island and Connecticut, had bnt one-sixth of
that circulation. Their united bank circulation
at that time was one-sixth of the circulation of
aU. It is now about twenty-nine and a half per
cent or thereabouts—between twenty-nine and
thirty per cent.—of tho whole circulation.
There has been a time since the formation of
the national banks when it was forty-one per
cent, of tho whole circulation.
Let us contrast with the condition of those
three States the condition of some other States.
Take the States of Virginia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. In 1660,
when tho per centage of the whole bank circu
lation of the United States held by the three
States of New England which I have named was
one-sixth, the circulation of these Southern
States was twenty-two per cent of the whole
circulation of the United States. That was the
relation which those two sets of States held with
regard to each other and with regard to the
whole amonnt of circulation when banking was
entirely free and every State could have just as
mnch circulation as its Legislature chose to au
thorize, or as its capital demanded. Those
three New England States had one-sixth of the
entire escalation, and the States which I have
named in the Sonth had twenty-two hnndredths,
o: over one-third more than the three New Eng.
land States. Now those three States have twen
ty-nine per cent, and the States I have named
in the Sonth have two per cent, of tho national
circulation. At this time the States of Virginia,
the two Carolinas, Georgia, and Alabama have
two per cent, of the entire amonnt of national
Capital in those States would gladly establish
banks of issne under State law, bnt in those
States, as in the rest of the country, banks of
issue are taxed out of existence under the na
tional banking law. We are therefore bound to
faU back upon the national banking act for
banking facilities, and as the Government has
taken possession and control of the business of
national banking, were we about to adjust the
system anew, I suppose no one would deny that
the facilities offered by the system should be
distributed somewhat as they were prescribed to
be distributed in tho original bank act; that is,
partially on population and partially on the
business necessities, resources, and business
transactions of tho various parts of the country.
Now, I see nothing specially in tho business
of the New England States or my of the north
ern States which at the present time would in
dicate that they require a larger percentage of
the whole cii eolation than they did in 1860 ex
cept this one fact: the business of national
banking having proved one of the most profit
able kinds of business in the country, they, with
that enterprise which characterizes their people,
have gone into it, and they wish to maintain
C mtrol of it. That reason exists for keeping
that excess of circnlation in those States. They
have managed to put the rest of the country in
a condition where every single transaction which
occurs most pay tribute to the monetary power
Tho money which has been pot into national
banks in those States which have an excess has
come to be a power which stretches its arms
over every State in the Union; and every plan
ter, every producer of those great staples which
enable us to pay our debts to foreign nations,
has to pay a tribute to the bankers in the States
which have this excess of circulation. That is
a reason why this state of things should con
tinue, and it seems to me to be the only reason.
It certainly cannot be asserted on this floor, and
I believe it has not been, that the legitimate,
ordinary, commercial and industrial transactions
and operations of the States having this excess,
demand anything like this excess of currency.
The reason is that they wish to supply the South
and West with the money to produce and to
move the great staples which are so important
in our national economy. That is the single
reason why this excess of currency should be
And yet, I do not forget that if we encroach
upon the circnlation of those States, if we take
from their banks a part of that circulation, it
may produce, and wiU produce, disturbances
which will affect not merely the people who own
the stocks of those banks, and who are deriving
incomes from’those stocks, but also the people
whom the Senators from the West and the Sen
ators from tho South represent hero. As the
Senator from Wisconsin has said, I do not know
but that some of my constituents may be ruined
by the withdrawal of circulation from New Eng
land banks. I do not know that a contraction
in tho currency of those parts of the country
might not extend to tho South and I Vest and
produce more injury to us in that direction
than any expansion of our own banking facili
ties would produce good by taking currency
from them and giving it to our people.
But it seems to me that the small amount pro
posed by the amendment of the Senator from
Indiana may be safely withdrawn from the banks
in those States which have the excess of circu
lation, after the $52,000,000 which is proposed
in another amendment of that Senator has been
made use of, without any serious disturbance.
The retiring of the three per cent, certificates,
and the substitution of national bank circula
tion in their place, would probably supply the
pressing and immediate wants of the West and
South. But it has been remarked that (his would
be altogether inadequate. We want more. There
will be more than forty-five million doUars, more
than fifty-two million dollars wanted in no very
great length of time; and therefore I think it
would bo wise for us to adopt tho amendment
of tho Senator from Indiana withdrawing $13,-
000,000 from the banks in the States which
have an excess of this circulation. That would
certainly produce no groat disturbance, espe-
cinUy if that withdrawal should not take place
till some future time after the issue of the
$45,000,000, which is provided for by tho re
tirement of the three per cont. certificates.
Those banks would graduaUy prepare them
selves for this withdrawal. Tho business com
munity would prepare themselves for this with-
drawaL I hope, therefore, that the amendment
will be adopted.
There is probablyvreason for a difference of
opinion about that portion of this biU which
proposes to establish banks upon a gold basis,but
I confess I have heard no special reason ui£ed
here to make me believe that it is dangerous.
I doubt very much whether we shall see banks
established on tho Atlantic coast under the last
three sections of this biH; but if they are estab-
Hshed, I see no reason why they should not be
just the same as any other banks. Certainly
their notes are just as weU secured as the notes
of the other national banks. Tho same security
exists for the holder of the note. If there is no
profit in establishing such banks it will simply
be a proposition which wiU have no effect,
our friends on the Pacific coast, on the other
hand,claim that it is necessary to help them, and
it seems to mo that if they want this plan,_ or
anything like this, there can be no valid objec
tion urged against trying it. It certainly can
do no harm, and it may do good.
I did not rise to make any extended remarks
on this question, because it has been discussed
so long and so much has been said about it that
everybody I believe, as the Senator from Wis
consin says, is agreed about the disease, and I
regret that we are not at all agreed on the rem
edy. I do not believe that the biU of the com
mittee is the best bill that could be drawn; but
it has been carefully considered. I do be
lieve it wiU help the South and West out of most
of their difficulties, certainly for ih© next two or
three years; and I believe it is the best meas
ure we can get. I have no anticipation that
such an amendment as that proposed by the
Senator from Massachusetts would prevail in the
other House if we ware to pass it here. I think
that He biU with the amendment of the Senator
from Indiana would be more likely to pass in
the other Honse than it will be without that
amendment, because there was a disposition
manifested there to take a larger sum from the
States which have an excess of circulation rath
er than the smaller one that was put into the biU
which passed the Senate at the last session.

One of the “ Brothers-in-Law” on the
The New York Sun of the 28th has the fol
lowing special from Washington:
Washington, January 27.—The last remark
made by James Fisk, Jr., to the Banking Com
mittee was that ho hoped they would paint him
as black as possible in their report; give him no
credit for the frank, straightforward manner in
which he had told them everything he knew and
had done, and to be snro to whitewash the pious
Corbin, who was sneaking off in a corner, send
ing daily lies to the Committee, in the hope of
dodging their inquiries and avoid explaining
his connection with Gould; and he added: “Let
those who don’t want to believe my statement
get the parties whom I involve under oath at
onco, and see what they will say.”
To-day, to the surprise of the whole Concmit-
tee, Mr. A. R. Corbin walked into the Conmit-
tee room and announced that he had received
the final summons of the Sergeant-at-Arms and
was ready to answer. He was at once sworn,
and kept on the stand for three hours, and nade
an exhibit of himself that completely vindicat
ed Fisk and Gould. He admitted having gone
into the gold speculations with Gould; to hav
ing got the $25,000 for Mrs. Grant, which he
says ho kept, and never meant to give her; and
considers that as he was dealing with unscrupu
lous men, he had a moral right to involve the
President and his family for the sakeof mak
ing money. He tried to vindicate the President,
and Mrs. Grant, bnt was so garrulous in hi3 tes
timony, so scattering in his replies, that he fail
ed to conceal the fact that be was totally devoid
of principle, and fnliy justified the hestile criti
cism of Fisk, Jr. He is a man of cunning and
craft, fully equal to Gould, and whas the Com
mittee got out of him had to be literally dragged
out. They lot him go to-day until to-morrow,
when he will again be pnt on the stand. He is
stopping on Capitol Hill with a sister, and so
far has not gone n?ar the White House, nor has
any of the White House family beea to see him.
He stated yesterday before he started for
Washington that he wonld not go bnt for a let
ter just received from Washington, saying that
he mast go and exonerate the President and
Mrs. Grant if it cost him his life. Ho walks
with a stick, and pretends to be nearly doubled
up with the rheumatism, but ths Committee-
believe his sickness to be feigned.
Scenes at the New York St. Cloud—
“Oh, My Blonde Hair!”
From the Neva York *’«>•.]
Among tho boarders the excitement was terri
fic. The passages were crowded with terrified
women, who appeared in costumes that would
puzzle a Parisian dressmaker to define. Some
young girls of the period made themselves gen
erally useless and greatly in the way, while
others really lent valuable assistance. Mrs. Ann
S. Stephens, the authoress, whose room is on
the same floor, went to work with a will, pack
ing her trunks preparatory to flight. Judge Wil
liams took the conflagration very philosophical
ly, and went downstairs with a roll of legal doc
uments in his hand. The Rev. Mr. Yan Tyne
had everything ready for a start in a short time,
as he had not retired, but was engaged on his
next Sunday’s sermon.
The staircase was blocked with boarders en
deavoring to get away with their baggage. One
young woman exhibited a heroism worthy of
record. She was petite, with dark curly hair,
and had just arrived on the first landing, with
her arms full of knick-knacks, when she sudden
ly dropped her load, and putting her hand to
her head exclaimed in heart-rending accents,
“Oh, my blonde hair!” rushed frantically back
and disappeared in a volume of smoke. There-
was a minute of awful suspense to tho bystand
ers ; but presently the courageous girl appeared
at the top of the stairs, carrying about ten
pounds of blonde capillary ornamentation. One
of the boarders said that the hiir was lately im
ported from Paris at a cost of $175.
The fire was soon extinguished.
Fatal Affray at Maryville.—Last evening
wo were enabled to learn further particulars re
garding the horrible affair which occurred at
Maryville, last Tuesday, an account of which we
have heretofore published.
James Donaldson, who residos near EUyjoy,
Blonnt county, accused Wm. Jenkins, a citizen
of Louisville, Tenn., of stealing hogs.
After an affray between them in which nei
ther was hnrt, Donaldson again attacked Jen
kins, and it ia alleged, stabbed him in tho side.
Tho wound, it is feared, will prove fatal.
An indictment was presented, yesterday, by
the grand jury of Blount county to the Circuit
Court, now in session, charging Donaldson with
intent to kill.—Knoxville Frees and Herald,
The following is the report of the proceed
ings of this court, Tuesday, as published in the
Constitution of yesterday.

Opinions were delivered as usual.

Pending the concluding argument of Mr.
Hartridge, for plaintiff in error, tho hour for
Paris, January 29—Midnight—The Emperor
of France has refused the request made by the
Cabinet for a reduction of the army. He alleg
ed ns a reason for such refusal that tho senti
ment was not prevalent in the political contest
Ollivier addressed a circular to Genivonx on
the subject of politics here. Ho says politics
are to be free, but attacks on the Emperor, apolo
gies for crimes, attempts to turn the soldiers
from their duty, matter that tends to cause dis
obedience of the laws, and all libels are to be
severely punished, especially the latter, with
heavy fines. He also enjoins the observance
of great vigilance in tho matter of political
It was the invariable custom of Mr. George
D. Prentice to rise early in the morning—some
honrsbeforehis youngerassociates were awake—
and to begin at once tho labors of the day. As
soon as it was light enough to see how to work,
he usually began tho task of overhauling the
large pile of exchanges which had been carried
to his room the night before from the room of
the news editor. He looked over every news
paper as it came, and whenever he found an
article suggestive of an editorial, or a paragraph
suggestivo of a witticism, he tore it out, seldom
resorting to tho use of the soissors, unless he
found them lying conveniently at hand, and laid
it upon his table, ready for use when the time
for writing came. By nine or ten o’clock in the
morning, he was ready for his emanuensis, who
usually came to his room about that honr, and
he then began the serious work of the day.
It is stated that the United States Assistant
Treasurer has shipped from San Francisco from
two to three millions of dollars in coin and a
considerable amount of currepcy overland, dur
ing the past year, of which no account has been
made public. The total shipments of treasure
for the year are, therefore, estimated at forty-
026 millions of dollars.
English steamers are reported to be going

The Freight Blockade Broken.—Vie quote as

“All the freight remaining in the Nashville and

yesterday. Tho embargo will be raised to-day, when

The State Agricultural Society.—IYo find the
following paragraph in tho Atlanta Constitution of
yesterday. We would state, in reply, that many of
the preminms awarded at the late State Fair were
not distributed simply because tho parties to whom
they were awarded failed to call on Col. D. W. Lewis,
Secretary of tho Society, for a warrant upon the
Treasurer for the same. It ia known that hundreds
of those who took premiums left the city before the
Fait closed, while many others who remained, failed
to get a certificate from the Secretary as above,
tl inking, perhaps, they wonld be hunted up a’lover
the country and have their premiums expressed to
them. Soon after the Fair closed and the business
of the society in relation thereto was wound up, it
was ascertained there were ample funds in the
Treasury, with what had been subscribed, to pay all
premiums and indebtedness of the Society; but
Col. Lewis being called away, there was some de
lay in distributing the premiums to tho few who had
pursued the proper method for obtaining them, but
we are assured by the Secretary and the Treasurer,
that every premium awarded and every dollar of
tho Society’s indebtedness will be paid, as the prop
er personsjfor receiving the same present them
selves. The following is the paragraph alluded
A few days ago we stated on the authority of a
gentleman to whom a large number of premiums
have been awarded at tho Macon Fair, that ho had
never received them. The Augusta Constitutional
ist copies a statement of the Secretary of the State
Agricultural Society, that parties entitled to or
claiming preminms should apply to a gentleman
named in Macon, as an evidence that our state
ment was not wholly true.
AU former fairs distributed premiums on the last
day. Three months have elapsed, and these pre
mium holders are notified that they must apply for
their premiums. At last accounts none had been
distributed. Our statement was founded on facts.

NERVOUS HEADACHE, LIVER COMALAINT,
The brain being the most delicate and sensitive
f all our organs, is necessarily more or less affect
ed by all our bodily ailments. A headache is often
the first symptom of a serious disease. If th^ner-
vous system is affected, there ia always trouble at
its source in tbo peri-cranium. And it maybe here
remarked that as tho nervous fibre pervades tho
entire frame, no part of tho physcioal struc
ture can be affected without the nerves suffering
sympathetically. Liver complaint of every typo af
fects the brain. Sometimes tho effect is stupor,
confusion of ideas,hypochondriasis; sometimes per
sistent or periodical headacho. In any case, tho
best remedy that can be taken is PLANTATION
BITTERS. In headache proceeding from indiges
tion, or biliousness, or both, the stomachic and an-
ti-billious properties of the preparation will soon
relievo the torture, by removing itB exuse. If the
complaint is purely nervous—in cth -r words, if it
has originated in tho nervous system and is not
tho result of sympathy, the BITTERS will be equal

mHE SUPPLY OF PERUVIAN GUANO having
JL become exhausted, it is necessaty for the
planting; community to look for a substitute for
this article, su efficacious in promoting and sus
taining the growth of cotton. The combination
of Peruvian Guano and Dissolved Bones has been
found to be the safest and best of all the mamv ar
ticles offered, and we are confident that in mi or
dinary season, to use the language of Mr.-David
Dickerson, can never fail. In presenting onr AM-
MONIATED to tbe planter, we bnt give the com
bination in a form ready for immediate use, thur
saving the cost and tronble of manipulation and
securing uniformity in quality.
The practical results obtained from the articles
shipped by us, prove them to be superior to all
others, and in a trade extending through every
portion of the cotton growing regions, and, during
the past five years, consuming thousands of tom,
we are yet to hear of the first complaint
In our manufacture we discard all mineral phos
phates, and rely entirely upon
made readily soluble by the ubc of Sulphuric Acid
The Ammonia is supplied from the next, valuable
source to Peruvian Guano, and in sufficient quan
tities to give tbe plant a vigorous and healthy
growth, tlic soluble bone sustaining it throughout
We have no hesitation in placing thia article
against auy manufacture or combination known,
and will refund every dollar spent in its purchase
In case it does not give satisfaction.
For the character and purity of the articles* .Ip-
pod by us we refer to the prominent names ap
pended, they being a few of those who obtain their
