Tba Harpera of New York City, are, as onr
readers know, men not only of the purest lojlty
bnt also cf a fervent piety that mike* them
shining lights, even among the elect of the
Young Men'a Christian Association, and the*
saints and “Christian statsamsa" of that highly
fsvored country. They go to church regularly,
msks long prayer*, and oeatrlbut* liberally to
all agencies for evangelizing the heathens.
They are, in abort, truly good men after the
Deacon Smith—of the Cincinnati Gazette—
They also publish “a Journal of eiviUzitlon"
called “Harper’s Weeekly,” the circulation of
which is larger, perhaps, than any similar paper
ever printed in thia country. It ia perhaps the
moat malignant and venomous assailant of the
Sontb, and the Southern people, to be fonnd on
the continent, and takes a delight almost fiend
ish in taunting, reviling and defaming every
thing and everybody—ezoept the negroes, seal
lawaga and carpet-bag thieves—South of the
Potomso river. Scarcely, a number is issued
that does not oontain an insnlt to, or a libel by
pen or pencil of the respectable and represents
tlvo people of this Motion. It knows no let np
or thidsw of tnrning in its devilish war, and
seems to grow more devilish aa the events and
passions of the war recede, and appear likely to
cool. And yet Southern people—Georgians
patronize it—actually pay their money to read
its abuse of them.
In the last iaane of this sitsnio sheet we find
something that appears to tu should have wide
circnlation at least in Georgia. It says in thia
State no paper is permitted to exist that will
not eld in the perseontlon of Republicans, white
and black, and thus uphold a tyranny that ia
driving labor and oapital from the State. That
is ils last and boldest slander. The editor
knows that Bbpnblloan papers have been pub
lished in Georgia ever ainoe the war, some of
which would never have been “permitted to
exist” in any otheroonntry in tbe world bnt the
Sontb, filled aa they were with the vilest abase
of the people and the moat inoendiary, inflam
mable appeals to the baMSt paaaions of thane'
groes against their former masters. He knows
that theao papers have not only been “permit
ted to exist” by ihoee whom they dally insulted
and villified, bnt that they have been petted
and fostered by Stale and National subsidies
aud plunder. They havo been made the gSI
clal organs of tbe rulers of tbe people whose
pockets were plnndered in order that they
might live. AU this is history, and yet, in its
face, this journal of civilization—this organ of
these pions men—deliberately falsifies the reoord
ini niters a slander so base, so grots, and so
ntterly nntonble os to almost exoite onr wonder.
It seems to ns tbit those of onr peoplo, who
mnit have tbelr literitnre illustrated by cats
stolen from English periodicals, had belter pay
their money for some other journal that does
not so systematically and gleefully slander
them. If tbelr stomachs crave snob food, anrely
they_can find it somewhere else not ao highly
seasoned with insnlt and libel.

A. Hundred Tons ot Gold Coin. .
The New York San cbronioles st length the
arrival of fonr tons of gold ooin on Tnesday
last, from the Snbtreasnry of San Franciaoo to
the Snblreasnry In New York. It was packed
in twelvo iron chests and was guarded by nine
armed men. The gold oonaiated of one han
dle] bags of double eagles, each containing
$20,000, and on its rceeipit at th* Treasury each
bag was emptied and contents weighed. One
million ot the anm was in coin fresh from the
San Franciaoo mint. The San says at the close
of bnslness on Tnesday tbe balanee of gold eoin
in the New York Sabtresanry was $48,522,-
(143.79—eqnal in weight to abont one hundred
tons. In addition to this, the same despoaitory

$400,000 in silver coin and $32,000,0C0 in pa
There are two treasure chambers on different
sides of the main floor in the Sabtresanry.
Each^tss walls of massive atone eight feet thick,
bnilt in two parallel sections. Tba intarme-

floor is covered with iron plates and rests on
solid masonry, which extends thirty feet helpw
the surface of the sidewalks. The five iron
doors are secured by Mveral heavy locks.
These doors weigh about two and a half tons
each. Tbo chambers are divided into iron
compartments. In the west side chamber the
gold is deposited, each oompartmant oontalnlng
$300,000 when filled. The gold is packed in

Oook must not be appointed, as he had a friend
who would just fit the plaoe, although she had

was finally lost Reid then moved Mias Cook •

Sdoozssful Fasscixo.—Under this head the
Hamilton Visitor illustrates what those words
mean, as follows:
Mr. J. H. Booker, who lives five miles north
west of Hamilton, started after the war without
money or lind. In 1SC6 be ran two plows, and
made five bales of cotton sod corn to do him.
Ho bos been increasing each year, and tells ns
that he expects to make this year six-.y biles of
cotton and two thousand bnihsls of oorn. He
made three hundred bushels of wheat this sea
son. He had oorn to sell last year, and will
have it for sale again this year, and also two
hundred bushels of wheat. He has plenty of
hogs for meat. He nsss very little gnane, and
attributes his success to the money saved by
not baying oorn, meat and gnano. He says
that tboee farmers who bay oorn and meat are
getting poorer every year. He knows some who
ran eight plows when he wss only rnnning two,
and now they are rnnning two, while he is run
ning eight. Mr. Booker owns firs hundred
sores of land, bought since the war, and, to
gether with the stock, paid for as bought. AU
this has been wrought by tho legitimate profits
of the farm.

The opinon of onr people in refsrenoc to the

reports of a bard fought battle, after tbe fight
had ended. Some are of the opinion that there
will be a clean sweep of the ootton, by the
worm, by tbe 25th; some think that the same
resnlt will be accomplished, bnt not before the
1st of September; some think that tbe detrac
tion will not be general but only partial, and
that not before ootton has mode at least two-
thirds of a crop; while there are a few that say
the crop will not be materially affected by the
oaterpillar. Corn, we honestly believe, was never
better thanltia this year. Wenotice tnatevery
where, where the land has boen thoroughly cul
tivated, that Ihe oorn is jmt as good as the soU
will natnrally prodnee. The cane crop is also
very good, and should it not be damaged by the
excesnive rains, wn think it will far exceed an
average yield. We learn that tbe potato crop
is excellent, indeed, bnt not having had the
privilege of testing the faot, we oan only speak
as ws have been informed by the planters. So
far ss onr observation extends, tbe pes crop
promises an ibnndant yield. Sinoe writing the
above we understand from the very best au
thority, that the caterpillars have completely
riddled tbe coiton in a large portion ot the
oonnty, and that in a very few days longer,
there will probably not be a leaf left on the
stalks. Bnt few have need ths worm destroyer
in this connly, xnd those only experimentally.

The above paragraph we oopy from the local

readers of his paper that hs Ubors herd to make
attractive “the rascality and obaoemty” with
which the Keeorder has to deal. He Inga in all

In the spring of 1864, when it was Ji-term

Judge Wallace, of Cook connty, III., has
affirmed the right of people to marry nnder
in Illinois end never repealed. GotUeib Wif-
lig, an ancient German settler, espoused Mary
Willig, his housekeeper, before witnesses, bnt
withont any formality ot church or state.
They lived together, had children, and were by
some of their neighbors reputed to be man and
wife, while by others they were eonaidered to
be living in cononblnase. Willig died, leaving
no will, and his wife Mary applied for letters
of administration. Her right to them was con
tested by tbe sons of a former wife on the
ground that the applicant had never been le
gally married to their father. Jadge Wallace
decided that the marriage was legal, end that
the widow had therefore a right to administer
the entate. If this style of marriage beoomea
prevalent anxious mammas in Illinois may
hive to follow their daughters around like
those of Sonth America.

T3B BEGINNING OF SICKNESS.
Never trifle with what are called small ailments.
A disorder, easy of control at first, if neglected for
a few weeks may become a mortal disbaso. If you

loss of appetite, bowels alternately costive and Jax,
resort at onoe to Simmons* Liver Regulator. That
great vegetable medicine will reach the seat of the
disorder, aud by its wonderful and peculiar power
in purifying (be stomach and stimulating the liver
and torpid bowels, imparts new life aud vigor to
the whole system; while its mild cathartic prop

and they include almost every unpleasant feeling
that belongs to physical disease and mental wretch

Some persons are prone to fevers, others to
bilious attacks. In all cases where a peculiar sus

It is no less potent as a preventive than as a
remedy. What family can afford to be without
such » resource in sickness ?
