rile Gr-eovgia, Weekly Telegraph, and. Journal «$© Messenger. telegraph and Messenger. JIACON, FEBRUAKl 4, ’.870 The Postal Telegraph. [communicated. ] }[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- i^despotism." 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 tribune, 25th. Speech of Senator Sawyer on the Cur* rency Bill. 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 day. 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 bank circulation. 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 centered there. 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 left there. 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 Stand. 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, January 28th. Supreme Conrt. The following is the report of the proceed ings of this court, Tuesday, as published in the Constitution of yesterday. Atlanta, February 1, 1870. MORNING SESSION. Opinions were delivered as usual. Argument was resumed in No. 12 Macon Cir cuit Pending the argument of Col. 'Whittle, the Court adjourned till 3 o’clock p. si. EVENING SESSION. Argument was begun in No. 12, Macon Cir cuit. Pending the concluding argument of Mr. Hartridge, for plaintiff in error, tho hour for djoumment arrived. 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 meetings. 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 through the Suez Canal without let or hindrance. The steamer Stirling, from Glasgow, recently passed through in twelve hours, on her way to Bombay, and other steamers were following.

Tho embargo will be raised to-day, when freights will be received and Shipped as usual from that point.” 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 to above: 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. IOSAD ALIS: THE OAKZ.SY ftSXSXiS FERTILIZER COMPANY, Manufactory opposite new Fair Ground, M« dc At R.

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 ly efficacious. So light and delicate arc all th p j-a’ ions made from Sea Moss Farise, that it is invaluable for in valids and all those desiring a light and delicate food. jan30-eodlw&w GEO. G.

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 FUBE BOJSrrE. 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 the season.
