COLD WEATHER CLOSE BY.
Snow in the Northwest and Frost Pre
The cyclone which started in the Gulf of
Mexico Wednesday morning was central
last night off the coast of Maine. The ba
rometer is highest in Texas. A decided cold
wave is moving across the country, and last
night’s signal service report* show that the
temperature over the entire country, us far
south as Augusta, ranged from 20' to 50’.
The probabilities are that frost will
lie rejxirted to-day from stations in the
northern and central portions of the .State.
At Marquette. Mich., last night snow
was falling. Chicago and Bt. Paul and
Duluth. Minn., reported temperatures below
freezing. The cold wave started some days
ago in tlie Northwest and moved South to
the Texas line, and is now moving rapidly
Eastward. It begau to be felt here last
night, and unless its progress is intercepted
to-day a light frost may be looked for to
morrow morning. The minimum tempera
ture here yesterday was 57". The maximum
was 70", a range of 13’. The mean tempera

Another of the Tragedian's Strong
“Richelieu” was the play at the Theatre
last night, and Keene's audience was fully
as large as on his opening night. The per
formance was of the highest order, the
tragedian playing his role with power and
grace t hat gave evidence of his great ability.
His portrayal of the character of the old
“Cardinal” was one of his best efforts, and
he was ably supported by the strong
company that is with him. The entire
play is a succession of strong situations and
powerful scene, and no one but a great
actor could carry the part through, but Mr.
Keene sustains it in a masterly manner,
and his sudden changes from the
powerful statesman to tbe weak
old man are as wonderful as they
are natural. The scene in which “De
Mauprat” appears with the purpose of as
sassinating the Cardinal, is one of the strong
est in the whole play, and Mr. Keene's act
ing in the dosing scene is grand. Mr.
Joseph AVheelock, as “De Mauprat,” had
the opportunity that the audience wished
for, viz: to show his ability. He won great
favor, arid was heartily appreciated and
applauded by his hearers. Arthur
Elliott, as “ harodas,” was as
scheming a villain as could well be found
about a court, and Adolph Jackson as
Louis XIII. was as much a tool as a vil
lain could wish for. Eugene Moore as
"Francois” played his part with excellent
judgment and marked ability. Miss Annie
iioyle as “Julie de Mortimer” was strong in
her port. The miseries of the unhappy
“Julie” were well brought out, and Miss
Boyle won hearty applause.
Prof. Dahlbergr’s Recital.
Prof. Dahlberg, the celebrated Swedish
pianist, will give a Piano Recital this after

JUDGE WALTER T. COLQUITT.
How He Astonished an English Trav
eler by His Versatility and Power.
From the Hamilton Journal.
Judge Colquitt was a young man of won
'derful versatile talent. He was a superior
and profound lawyer, a popular and unsur
poaed stump orator and a very eloquent
and instructive preacher. One one occasion
an English nobleman was traveling through
this country and made some stay in Colum
bus. Huperior Court was in session and
the Engbshinan was curious to see how our
courts were conducted, so he went to the
court house. A murder trial was in prog
ress, and Judge Colquitt was, as usual, in
the defense. He made the concluding
speech, and for two hours he thrilled the
court, jurors and spectators with his burn
ing eloquence. The Englishman was
charmed, and had many questions to ask
about the eloquent orator, and sought his
On next day the Englishman learned that
there was to be a political meeting that
night at Temperance Hall. Being curious
to know something of the political methods
in America he decided to attend. The
meeting was organized by a chairman and
secretary, and Judge Colquitt was called
for a speech. He ascended the platform
with a grace peculiar to himself and enter
tained the large audience both bj - argument
and anecdote, and all were much interested
and often convulsed with laughter. Poli
tics was the Judge's great forte, and gave
him his fame in the United States Senate.
On the succeeding Sabbath the English
man attended services at the Methodist
church, aud a* the regular pastor was absent
at conference. Judge Colquitt filled the pul-
Eit. His text was: “What is Truth?' and
inguage fails to convey any adequate idea
of that sermon. The Englishman was pro
foundly astonished, and exclaimed to a
friend: “Are the Americans all lawyers, all
politicians and all preachers' If that man
was in England, we would make him Lord

The Birmingham and Atlantic Air Line
is now building between Savannah and

and Florida, from Birmingham through
Southwest Georgia into Florida. The
Mo*xm, (jtGrauge and Himiingham people
are considering the advisability of building
a line parallel to the Birmingham and At
lantic Air Line. The road has been a rival
of tbe Air Line from the beginning, but it
is probable that the days of rivalry are
Messrs. Montgomery, Wallace and Jack
son, of the Birmingham. Georgia and
Florida: Lang ley and McFarland, of the
Macon, LaGrange and Birmingham; Searcy.
Truitt and Render, of the Air Line and Maj.
AVest, of the United States Construction
Company, met in Atlanta on Monday. Col.
J. L. Warren, of the Savannah, Dublin and
Western, and Mr. Dudley Hughes, of the
Dublin and Macon, were present, but did
not officially appear. a their interest* were
represented by the construction company,
which is carrying out their contract*.
TO CONSOLIDATE THEIR INTERESTS.
The subject of the meeting was to discuss
the advisability of consolidating all tbe
various interests and drive out rivalry by
operating under one company. Tbe Macon,
LaGrange and Birmingham cannot ad
visedly build a line if the Air-Line is put
through, vet the Air-Line would be greatly
benefited if it had the assistance instead of
the opposition of the .Macon, LaGrange and
Birmingham people. The Birmingham,
Georgia and Florida will build east to the
Chattahoochee river, crossing at West
Point, but if they run the line a little
little further north, so as to cross the river
higher up, the Air-Line could use
its track from the Chattahoochee to
Birmingham, and thus save tbe building
of about eighty miles of road, while the
Birmingham. Georgia and Florida would
uot increase the length of their line but a
few miles. A consolidation would there
fore be to the interests of all, for the pro
jectors of the Birmingham, Georgia and
Florida would have an outlet to deep water,
which is the great desideratum in Birming
ham, much sooner than otherwise. The
Macon, LaGrange and Birmingham would
get into the field, and the Air Line would
receive benefits from both.
A POWB&FVL COMBINATION.
The most important point of all is that
each of the Conijianies has enormous sub
scription to both its capital stock, and its
construction company stock, and if these
subscriptions are put together they
will make a capital that will lie
equal to carrying through almost ant' en
terprise that might be undertaken The
meeting lasted for several days, and the
gentlemen were in conference both day
and night. Maj. AVest said he
was not at liberty to tell
what had been done, but when the gentle
men parted it was with the most friendly
The Air-line has its right of way into Sa
vannah over all the land through which It
desires to run, except over five farms. Two
of them are owned by negroes whose hold
ings are so small that tbe company will not
ask for tbe right of way, but will buy it.
The other three are larger tracts, and it is
expected that the owners will donate
the right of way in a few days. There were
four pro[>erty owners who stood out, but one
of them wrote to Maj. AVest yesterday and
said that after thinking the matter over, he
came to the conclusion that the road would
be of such great interest to Savannah that
he thought he ought, out of public spirit,
to withhold the right of way no longer.

of stael. You bad breathed the breath of im
mortal life into the "statehood” of the State,
end Mars land for the flint time became a peo
ple—a State. 1 have told you this, but I cannot
repeat it too often. You—more than Cecil
Calvert or John Eager Howard, or any man
who has striven in field or forum for the honor
and glory of Maryland have decorated, and
illustrated and created a living spirit of individ
uality in the State. This spirit is the source of
all chivalry, of all devotion to noble ideas -of all
aspirations for right and honor.
i want to invoke your muse again—not to do
anything, for thoughts such as yours, and the
thrill and ring of such poetry cannot be evoked.
But I give you a fact and a suggestion. At the
battle of Cold Harbor, June 2b, 1862. Gen. Jack
son ordered me to take the First Maryland in,
and wiih' ut any dertnite orders where to go.
I asked him which way I should move when I had
broken their line. He said: ‘That way," swing
ing his right arm at full length from him. The
direction. I afterward found, was behind Mc-
Clellan s left.
Anyhow. I pushed forward toward the place
where there was the hottest of the firing, and
pressed right iuto the smoke. I found a Fed
eral six-gun battery about 1,000 yards in front,
and a Federal line of battle in front of the bat
tery. in a roadway cut into the ground, which
afforded them perfect protection. The fire
every instant was heavy, more trying. On my
right the troops came rearing hack in the smoke
and gloaming iit was just about sundown); on
my left the line lay on the ground and began
firing. My own line began to tremble, the men
to stumble and catch their toes in the ground
and in a moment they would have broken—shot
and shell screaming over them and musket halls
knocking a man out every minute. I sprang
out in front of the line, gave the order: “Halt!
Attention! fin the centre dress." and then put
them through the manual of arms. It was
such a relief that they cheered, and at the order
rushed forward at a “right shoulder shift arms,”
and went over the Federal line and battery
without firing a shot.
The Maryland IJne have adopted the pansy—
pennez a mo t—as their emblem. The Calvert
black and orange make it appropriate, and we
will fix the pansy as the Confederate flower.
The Maryland Line will attend the foundation
of the Lee monument at Richmond, Oct. 27. and
have directed me to invite you to accompany
them as their guest. They have invited Gen.
Joe Johnston. Wade Hampton, ex-Gov. H. L.
Thompson, of South Carolina, and yourself as
their guests, and tender you escort on that oc
It will he a pride and a pleasure to us to have
you or. that occasion, my dear Randall, and you
must arrange to come here and go with us, or
meet us there. We leave Union station at 11:30
p. m.. Oct. 26. Let me hear from you.
Yours truly, Bradley T. Johnson.
Mr. Randall has accepted the invitation,
and will go down to Richmond with tho
Maryland Line on the night of the 36th.
Puppies Play with a Horse.
From the Danbury Newt.
John Clarke, at the Lake, is considerable
of a dog fancier in his way. He is now
rearing two English terriers, and, like ail
puppies, tney are full of fun, frolic and mis
chief. Thursday he hitched np a horse to
drive to the depot after guests. He tied the
horse in front of the house to go inside for a
moment. The puppies had usen following
him to the stable, and were much interested
in his movements. As soon as he turned his
back on them they went to work at mis
chief. Mr. Clarke had tied the horse some
what carelessly in a slip knot, and the end
of the halter hung nearly to
the ground. This the puppies
espied swinging, ami went to play
ing with it. They caught hold of it, and in
pulling untied the knot Then they were
in high glee over their Success. ” They
walked backwards and growled and tugged
away at the halter and led the horse on.
When they saw the horse following them it
incited them on, and backward they went
uutil they led the horse into the lake. The
horse was thirsty and warm and now en
tered into the fun of the occasion by walk
ing out into the water and dragging the
puppies along. One let go, but the other
had his teeth fast in the rope and was
dragged into the water. The other puppy
began to yelp and this called Mr. Clarke
out just in time to save an accident to his
horse and wagon, and a death to his favor
“My love, what magic spell is thrown
Upon your face? Its charm I own.
Whence came thv pure and pearly teeth#
Thy rosy lips! Thy perfumed breath?”
She said, in accent* sweet and clear,
