FRIDAY MORNING. JULY 7, 1871.
Alumni Meeting This Attebnoon.—We are
asked to state that there will be a meeting of
the Alumni of the University of Georgia resi
dent in this city and county, this afternoon at
five o’clock, at the office of Messrs. Nisbets <fc
Jackson, and to earnestly urge that there be n
Macon, July C, 1871.
Editor* Telegraph and Messenger: I notice
in the Telegraph of to-day your remarks under
the caption of “The Cotton Situation,” in re
gard to the amount of rain reported by myself for
the month of June, and for the six months end
ing June 30, which is all correct; but you go on
to state that we are to expect but seven and a
half inches more rain for the balance of the
year—according to a statement of Prof. Barn
well of the fall of rain at Athens during twelve
months—a part of 1868 and 1869. If you will
refer to my report for the month of May in your
paper of June 2d, you will find that Prof. Barn
well predicts for Macon .16 inches of rain per
annum, which I have no doubt we will get, and
this will allow us to anticipate 17 and 44-100
inches in the six months to come. Yet oven
thin amount will be but a small supply, less than
three inches per month, and less than half wo
have already received. I wish also to correct an
error in the report of the mean heat for 6 o’clock,
as published by your yesterday, it should have
bee n 82 3-10 degrees instead of 8G 3-10, making
the total at 8 o’clock a. h. 80 degrees; at 2
o’clock p. m, 83 4-10, and at 6 p. m. 82 3-10.
J. M. Boabdman.
Remarks.—If Mr. Boardman will refer to our
article again, he will look in vain for any such
statement as “that wo aro to expect but seven
and a half inches of rain for the remainder of
the year,” and wo] were very unfortunate indeed
to havo conveyed any such idea to any mind.
The solo use wo intended to make of the sur
prising fact, (for which we are indebted to him)
that thirty-eight inches of rain havo fallen in
Macon since the 1st of January last, when only
about forty-six inches aro ordinarily due for the
entire year, was to infer the bad condition of
the ootton crop from such an abnormal condi
tion of the weather.
But while upon the subject, Mr. B. will permit
us to doubt the correctness of Prof. Barnwell’s
idea that fifty-six inches of rain are due the lat
itude of Macon. It seems incredible that there
should a difference of ten inches of rain-fall
between the latitude of Athens and that of Ma
con, which is but little more than a degree fur
ther South. Prof. Henry, of the Smithsonian
Institute, when he was here in 1869, remarked
in our hearing, that the amount of rain-fall in
Macon would be found to vary no great deal
from forty-six inches in the year.
Ona Georgia Gibes Abboad.—Wo published,
a fow days ago, flattering notices of the schol
arly attainments and deportment of several
young ladies from our city and State who are
pursuing their studies in Staunton, Va. It again
gives us pleasure to glean from a Morristown
(Penn.) paper that at the late commencement
of Oakland Seminary, Mibs Ellen Jones, of Lib
erty county, Ga., won the gold medal and the
highest honors of her class. Her valedictory
was highly applauded.
Two grand sensations fill the Northern papers
of the 3d: One is the arrest in Derby, Conn.,
of a woman poisoner, Mrs. Nelson H. Sherman
by name, who has successively murdered three
husbands and eight children. The second is
the murder of one Oliver S. Halstead in New
ark, whe was shot in the house of his paramour,
by a jealous rival. Halstead was from one of
the most respectable families in Now Jersey,
the son of a Chief Justice of that State—a man
of f>3, with a wife and family.
A Blow atthe Trades-Unions.—The Supremo
Court of Massachusetts have just made a notable
decision in a suit instituted by a stone-cutter to
recover a certain sum of money—$500—levied
as a fine by the Trade Union to which he be
longed, for cutting stone in a manner contrary
to the rules of the Union. The Court ruled that
the demand was illegal, and that a combination
and threat to prevent workmen from being em
ployed was an illegal conspiracy.
The Graphic.—Brown & Co. have received
the issue of this incomparable English illus
trated serial for the week ending June 17th. It
is a splendid number, both as to pictures and
reading matter. We have so often spoken
hearty words of praiso concerning the Graphio
that further encomium seems superfluous. We
consider it as far ahead of anything published
in this oountry as it is possible fo* words to
We invite special attention to the faot that
our talented young townsman, Mr. J. L. Har
deman, who recently graduated with honorable
“cation at the University of Georgia, will de
liver the address to-night, before the Philoma-
thean Society of Wesleyan Female College.
His reputation as an orator, and the interest of
the occasion, we trust will bring out a large
“Timothy”—Yrattville, Ga.—Your com
munication, we regret to say, is too long for our
columns in their present condition. We must
decline, except in very exceptional cases, to
publish any long communications while as much
pressed for space as wo are just now. We would
respectfully suggest, also, that the subject mat
ter of your communication is more suitable for
iho columns of a religious, than a secular paper.
Bowen’s Pardon.—The New York Sun, of
Monday, soys Charles Ridgeway arrived at
hong Branch on Saturday with a blank pardon
for the bigamist, Congressman Bowen. He
spent an hour with the President, and went
away with a pardon. As the pardon had not
been seen in Washington up to Monday night,
Ridgeway must have dopt it accidentally some
where on the road.
The Mils in the Coooanct.—A World Wash
ington correspondent, writing about the irrecon
cilable quarrel between Commissioner Pleas
anton and Secretary Bontwell, says the main
difficulty is that Pleasanton wants to use the
whole “moral force” of the Treasury Depart
ment to secure Grant’s renomination, and Bout-
w ell is criminally indifferent to the use of it in
Yellow Fever is said by the telegrams to be
raging at Vera Cruz, and its appearance this
early on the Gulf, implies some danger of its
extending to American ports. Every caution
should be taken to prevent it. A New York tele
gram reports the arrival at quarantine of
Spanish bark with yellow fever on board. It
does not give the port from whence she sailed.
A Quack Doctor op Laws.—The Northwest
ern University of Illinois has just conferred the
degree of LL. D. on PhiL Sheridan. Sheri-
da’ns practice has been so fatal to the laws of
God and man that the University determined to
perpetrate a stiDging satire on Phil, and the
doctors, too, by conferring this degree.
Thanks.—The editors of the Telegram and
Messenger return their thanks to the Philo-
mathean Society of the Wesleyan Female Col
lege, for an invitation to attend the biennial
celebration of that society, this evening at 8
Early.—Some friend who sent his name on
a slip which was mislaid, sent ns a fair sized
sweet potato yesterday. This is early.
The Medical Convention.
We have received a private note from Dr.
McDowell, the President eleot of the Georgia
Medical Association, in which be says our report
of the Convention was incorrect in every “ma
terial statement,” and to prove the same he in
stances the fact that the first motion to adjourn
was made by Dr. Green, of Americas, who
voted with the minority, but moved to adjourn
until 10 o’clock the next day.
The Doctor also charges that the friends of
tho resolutions sought by “all manner of tac
tics” to prevent a vote upon their own report.
Upon inquiry we learn that Dr. Green did really
make the first motion to adjourn, but we are
assured this was not done to defeat any action,
but merely to allow time for the excitement,
which was at fever heat, to subside. His motion
was made after the previous question had been
called, and when the house was in hopeless con
fusion. To prove that he did not favor indefi
nite postponement, he voted against Dr. Kirk-
sey’s motion to adjonra until two days after the
assembling of the Association at Columbus.
The members of the minority distinctly deny
that they wished any postponement of a vote
upon the resolutions. But, on the contrary,
several members of the Atlanta party declared
sub wee, but loud enough to be heard, that they
intended to adjourn and go home that night.
Dr. McDowell also takes us to task for calling
his party schismatics, and asks how could they
be schismatics, when they held a majority in
the convention which had been called by the
opposition? Wo answer, this is not difficult to
explain. History shows how, time and again,
by superior tact and industry, small minorities
have obtained the control in the organization of
large deliberative bodies. Thus the New School
members of the Presbyterian chnrch, in 1836,
with less than one-fourth of the numerical
strength of the Old School, yet obtained con
trol of their General Assembly. So, also, on
Wednesday, Atlanta, organized and compact,
without pausing, we have heard, even to regis
ter at the hotels, marched to tho City Hall, to
control matters and go home.
As to whether our Atlanta friends are schis
matics in the real sense of the word, we will
leave to be settled by the controversialists them
We may bo old fashioned in our views, but
to us it does appear that when any portion of
scientific body departs from long established
usage and that practice which requires
thorough course of reading, and a given term
of years to qualify the candidate for a degree
in the department of medicine, the innovators,
are liable to the charge of schism and departure
from ancient landmarks.
The Doctor also charges that we intimated
that a majority of tho Atlantaites present, were
graduates of their Medical College. We did
not intend to create this impression, having no
data to guide us in the premises. But a mem
ber of the committee on credentials assures us
that a goodly number held the diplomas of that
latter day school.
In answer to the interrogatory whether we
are the champions of the minority movement,
we answer emphatically, no. We are the
champions of no clique or faction, and leave
you to fight out these questions on your own
line, if needs be for “ four years more.” But
we do reserve the right as journalists, and shall
exercise it, too, of upholding the standards of
medical and academical education in onr State.
And whenever we believe that jaokleg doctors,
or sohool teachers, or engineers, or jnrists are
inflicted npon the people, we shall enter a pro
test against their papers.
In conclusion, we can assure Dr. McDowell
that our feelings toward himself are of the
kindest nature, nor would we intentionally
wrong or mistate the party of which he is a
Wendell Phillips Outdone.—The Commun
ists have broken out in New York and hold their
orgies nightly. They go so far ahead of Wen
dell Phillips in the art and science of objurga
tion, that we think Phillips is laid on the shelf.
He’s gone up, unless he can get some engeni-
ous Bostonian to supplement his “cussing pow-
with a twenty-horse engine. When Wen
dell reads their “proceedings” he will see the
handwriting on the wall. He will be dumb
founded—like that furious old Virago of a
London fisherwoman, who was “cussed” dumb
on a wager by an Oxford student The student
bet a guinea he could “out cuss” her withont
profanity, and accordingly assailed her with
every term known in science. She stuck to him
and gave him as good as he sent, until he called
her a “hyposulphurous hypothennse of a right-
angled triangle,” when sho gave in and bust
into tears. That was too much. Sho had
hoard swearing in her day, but that beat every
thing—no woman conld stand it. And when
Phillips reads the howlings of these Commun
ists and sees how far they are ahead of him in
cussing everybody and everything, he will have
to give in too.
The Western Silver Mines.—During the
last six months 55,000 ounces of pure silver
from the Western mines, have been received at
the Assay Office at New York, and from one
little island in Lake Michigan, silver to the
value of $600,000 has b9en received at the
United States' mint at Philadelphia within the
past twelve mouths. The vein on this island is
eight feet wide and 70 feet long, and the ore is
so pure that 2,200 ounces yielded 1,600 ounces
of pure silver. The “Little Emma” mine in
Utah, since last August, has yielded 9,000 tons
of ore which have averaged $220 per ton, of
which $160 a ton is net profit The daily pro
duet, now, is 100 tons, and the daily net profit
is $15,000. The mine is owned by four or five
persons and cost them $1,500,000. In Nevada
and Arizona there are also mines of unusual
richness—the crude ore from one of them, in the
latter region, yielding $S,000 a ton, and the
range being from $350 to $800 per ton.
The Amazon Rives. —A South American
letter in the St Louis Republican, speaking of
the Amazon River, says :
The Amazon river drains over one-third of
South America, and its basin is more than twice
the size of the Mississippi valley, while, if the
Mississippi poured into it near its month, it
would not raise it over six inches. The tide
flows np the Amazon six hundred miles from its
month, and the river is navigable for ships 2,-
400 miles, and for steamboats, to the foot of
the Andes. The extent of inland navigation
afforded by the Amazon and tributaries is 50,
000 miles, and 15,000 of this is suitable for
steamboat navigation. In tho Amazon basin
aie found Bolivia, Peru, Equador, New Grena
da, and Venezuela, (five republics) all drained
to a certain extent by the Amazon River. Of
these, Bolivia holds four-fifths of the entire
population of the Amazon basin, which is 2,750,
000 inhabitants, and whose area in territory is
400,000 square miles.
The Outrage Manufacture.—This depart
ment of home industry can uolongerbe classed
among our “infant manufactures.” It has been
prosecuted by the Radicals with great vigor
ever since the war. The Montgomery Adver
tiser cites an illustration of it as follows:
“George W. Richardson, the Radical Solici
tor of Coosa county, blindfolded, gagged and
whipped two little negro girls, and threatened
them with death if they stiould ever toil who
committed the outrage. He was trying to man
ufacture a Ku-klux outrage to serve as the basis
for further persecution of Southern Democrats.
3ut, fortunately for us, he was detected, and
his design exposed by a negro. ’
Iowa Crops.—The Des Moines Register says
the wheat crop of Iowa will be a fair average,
and the com will be the best ever produced in
the State. Weather exceedingly hot.
TIIE GEORGIA PRESS.
The peach crop of Southern Georgia is the
best ever known, says the Valdosta Times.
CapL Jaa. R. Miller, formerly of the 47th
Georgia Volunteers, and a most exoellent citi
zen, died in Echols county, last week.
The Valdosta Times says crops in that section
are unusually poor. There will probably be as
much com made as last year, but ootton will
not make moro than one third of a crop.
The McDuffie Journal calls tho P. 6.L6. a
‘Meteoric Venus,” and says she will “radiate
around Warrenton” this week. This question
about the P. G. must be settled. Oar nerves

The Commercial says:
Which is Bight ?—We notice that the Car-
tersville Express is jubilant over the early com
pletion of the Oartersville and Van Wert Road
and its extension to Cedar town, as is evinced
by the following: “The existence of the Chero
kee Railroad from Rock Mart and Van Wert
via Cedar Town to Pryor’s Station on the Dal
ton, Rome and Selma Railroad is positively de
termined npon, and a corps of engineers are
now surveying the route. The work will soon
be commenced and pushed to a speedy com
Tho Express may be right. If so, we cannot
explain the cause that called forth the annexed
letter that we are in receipt of this morning:
Near Stilesboro, Ga , June SO, 1871.
Mr. Editor : The citizens and laborers of this
section having been bo badly treated and hum
bugged by Kimball and his carpet-bag crew on
the C. & V. W. R. R., we desire to speak
through the press. I desire to write him a letter
weekly, about a column in length, setting forth
the facts in the case.
Would you like such a contribution to the
Commercial. It is generally known over this
section that such is to be published, and it is
anxiously looked for and will circulate the pa
per as all are anxious to have it.

Butts County.—During a visit to the upper
part of Monroe and a portion of Butts county
ast week, we had an opportunity to observe the
condition of the crops. Owing to the excessive
rains, crops of all kinds are more forward than
usual at this season of the year, and promise ah
abundant yield. Grass has kept pace with other
vegetation, and in some places got the better of
“king cotton” in its upward tendency.
The best crop we saw was on the plantation
of CoL B. F. Ward, in Butts county. His cotton
has been well worked and looks well. His ex
tensive lowgrounds looked “like a sea of com”
almost as far as the eye conld reach, along the
margin of the Ocmulgee. The Colonel thinks he
will make at least twelve hundred barrels.
Red Clover.—We have seen sample stalks of
red clover from a half-acre patch on the prem
ises of Dr. R. L. Koddey, which is said to aver

last, and the crop cut twice. But we don’t pro
pose to “frighten” any one into raising clover
by figuring ont the probable yield during the
season, with this statement for the basis.

Last week a little boy was passing through the

his flesh when an ox, standing near, entered the
arena, lifted the dog npon his horns and carried
him off to the joy of the little boy. It is not
positively ascertained whether love for the
little boy or hatred for the dog prompted the
interference of the ox.
