Devout Bismarck.—In a recent discussion in
the North German Parliament, Prince Bismarck
took occasion, in dilating upon the “truly

Commercial Advertiser, hovr palpable the hand
of providence is always observed in the misfor
tunes of our enemies. If the war had termin
ated differently, had the clo 36 of it found the
French in Berlin, instead of the Germans in
Paris—it is very doubtful whether Bismarok
would have been so ready to recognize the same
agency. People can afford to be very pious
few days afterwards Mrs. T. and son signed
a per and received from Brock $1000 in mo-

b>; tad received his 15 per cent, on the $5000
o.r med, which any schoolboy knows amounted
t. ust $1500. Mrs. T. set about realizing on
the notes, bnt before she fingered the cash she
had to pay her attorney (Mr. Mynatt) $250 for
col acting them, besides having to submit to a
bank shave of $100 on one, and $250 on the
other. When Mrs. T. got through the business
she sat down and did some figuring on her own
acc rant, and the resnlt stood as follows: She

The editor of the Savannah Republican speaks
for two in the following paragraph:
Very Well as ear as it Goes.—It is a grati
fying evidence of Christian love for the ministry
to see the chnrches of several cities of Georgia
providing their pastors with horses and vehicles,
for their personal comfort, and to enable them
to perform their outdoor religious duties with
farless labor and inconvenience. These are
worthy tokens, and the example cannot be too
generally followed. But we would suggest to
our friends of the church who make these dona
tions, that their liberality requires that they
should not be made in a manner to entail ex
pense on the donees. They should be sure that
the pastor is able to feed his horse—no small
item in a city—before one is given to him, or
else the proeendcr should invariably go along
with the horse. It is not yet too late for the
adoption of this suggestion in all cases where
ministers are allowed moderate salaries. Those
church members who contribute nothing to buy
the horse, should be called on for a purse to

Savannah cotton receipts last season foot np
710,977 bales, an increase of 235,135 bales over

The Savannah Republican very justly and
forcibly condemns the praotice of petitioning
for pardons for criminals who have been fairly
and legally convicted of crime. It scores Bol
lock for his shameful abuse of the pardoning
power, and then goes on to say:
But Bollock is not alone responsible. The
people have their share of guilt in this unthink
ing war upon society. Men generally have a
weakness on the subject of petitions for par
don. They allow the promptings of mercy to
overrule the stem demands of justice, and sign
all that are presented to them, little thinking
what a wound they are inflicting upon tbe com
munity in which they live, and whose safety and
good order should bo tho objects of their high
est consideration. Even juries, after condemn
ing a man to death a3 his just desert, not nnfre-
quently come forward and affix their names to
petitions to turn loose again the blood-thirsty
victims of the law upon the public. This is all
wrong, and we most stop it or consent to set
aside all law, or make every man the avenger of
his own wrongs.

in the vicinity of No. 12, M. and B. R. R.,
whose cotton farm was considered almost mined
by grass, turned some two or three hundred
sheep into his fields, and, strange to say, they
were not injuring the cotton by trampling on it,
but were nipping the grass olosely to it, and had
not been known to even taste of the cotton. I
was an eye-witness to the scene on the 26th, and
they were doing wonderful work in the destruc
