THE GEORGIA CAPITAL.
Notwithstanding the metropolitan or National charac
ter of The Sony South, we are compelled to have a de
partment for local noticet. The growing importance and
sensational character of this city cannot be ignored.
Atlanta has over thirty churches.
Broad Street Bridge affords the finest view
of a sunset of any point in the city.
Atlanta is metropolitan in all its characterist
ics. Her street railway system is not excelled
There are a large number of buildings in pro- ;
cess of erection in Atlanta. The outlook for her
future prosperity is good.
The Young Men’s Library is the fashionable 1
resort. Their hall is splendidly arranged, and
Charles Herbst, the librarian, has a peculiar fit- j
ness for the position. He is passionately fond
of antiquities, curiosities, flowers, and ladies and
other works of art.
The walls of the Atlanta Cotton Factory are
going up rapidly, and so is real estate in its
Atlanta, by all means, should have a city hos
pital. What has become of the Atlanta City Hos
pital Association? •
The Young Men’s Christian Association are
silently, but not the less effectually, “going
about doing good.”
The Atlanta drummer will go down in history
as sui generis. For making sales and making
love, he is unsurpassed.
The public schools, Atlanta’s pride, are in full
operation. It is gratifying to know of the pro
gress attained by the children.
Atlanta will have two cotton compresses at
w r ork soon, and it is anticipated that her cotton
receipts will be doubled by them.
The Atlanta Benevolent Association numbers
among its members the most active philanthro
pic ladies of the city. They are doing untold

Many thanks to our esteemed friend, Dr. Tay
lor, the live druggist, for two large bottles of ex
cellent cologne of his own make. He has sold
thirteen barrels of it.
The Boys of Atlanta will commence soon the
publication of a daily amateur paper, The Daily
Mirror, at two dollars per annum. It will reflect
the sentiments of young Atlantadom.
The Markham Hotel, on the old site of Wash
ington Hall, will be completed by December. It
will be one of the best-arranged in the State.
Col. J. E. Owens, the proprietor, knows how to
keep a hotel.
Saturday evening is the time to see Atlanta in
a bustle. Then the citizens are on the streets,
having finished their week’s labor. The streets
and stores are crowded, and a stranger is struck
with the life that permeates the city.
Oakland Cemetery is well-arranged and well-
kept. Yet, the hands there, in making an exca
vation, at the depth of six feet dug up a live
frog. How the frog got there, and how long it
had been there, is a conundrum. His mouth

In the year 1839, two travelers were journey
ing through this section of Georgia, and halted
near the spot where the Kimball House now
stands, to seek repose and partake of refresh
ments. The meal ended, one of them strolled
leisurely some distance away, busily engaged in
viewing and admiring the scenery. Looking
toward the horizon, he saw the far-off moun
tains, and his eagle eye took in at a glance the
topography of the country by which he was then
surrounded. He was so much absorbed in his
subject that his companion took occasion to ask
him the cause of his unusual interest. “I was
just thinking wl at a magnificent inland city
will at no distant day be built here,” was his
response. The man who spoke so prophetically
thirty-six years ago was Hon. Alexander H. Ste
phens, w’ho has lived to see it verified.
The station-peg of the Georgia Railroad was
planted near where Alabama and Whitehall
streets intersect. Near it there was a small, one-
room log house, with a dirt floor, occupied by a
poor woman and her daughter. It was then
called “Terminus.” In 1842, it was incorpo
rated as “Marthasville,” and in 1847, as the
“City of Atlanta.” In 1850, it had a population
of 5,000; in 1860, 10,000; in 1870, 25,000; and
now, over 35,000.
Atlanta is the highest point of any commer
cial importance in the railway system of the
South, having an altitude of 1100 feet above tide
water,—900 feet higher than Augusta, Macon,
Columbus and Montgomery; between 300 and
400 feet higher than Rome, Dalton and Chatta
nooga; and more than 700 feet higher than St.
Louis. A line stretched over the map from the
Cape of Delaware to the Rio Grande, and from
Fernandina, Florida, to St. Louis, will cross
each other near the city. She is, from her cen
tral geographical position, a grand center. She
has already won her title as a commercial center,
and will soon be known as a medical center, as it
is now a health center. The culture of music has
rapidly developed here, and few cities so young
can boast of more vocal and instrumental talent
than Atlanta. It is also destined to become a
great manufacturing center. The completion of
the Marietta and North Georgia Railroad will
open up the vast mineral resources of North
Georgia, while the Georgia Western opens up
the illimitable coal fields of Alabama. The
Great Western Canal, too, will contribute its
share with cheap coal and water power. Spin
dles and furnaces will be in active operation,
and the millions of dollars annually sent North
and West will be retained at home. The whistle
of the steamboat will be heard mingling with
the shriek of the locomotive, as the former goes
steaming by on the canal, carrying the produce
of the West to the Atlantic coast.
Atlanta, too, will become a literary center, and
the future great publishing house for the South,
where the works of Southern authors will be pub
lished. will be located here. The great model
newspaper, too, will be printed here, giving tone
and shape to popular opinion, instead of pan
dering to a morbid and sensational-loving pop
ulace. Here, too, it is proper that the literary
journal of the South should find its birth-place,
and The Sunny South fully fills the bill.
STATE AND NATIONAL.
BY A LIVE POLITICIAN.
The old remark that “politics makes strange
bed-fellows” is likely to have a complete verifi
cation if a financial plank is ] ut in the National
platform of political parties n< xt year. Hard or
soft money is the issue now in some of the
States, and is assuming such proportions as to
indicate that it will be carrif d into the race for
President at the next election. If it is, it will
look a little strange to see G<n. Butler, Judge
Kelley, Jefferson Davis, Senator Gordon and
Governor Allen quietly resting on a rag-money
platform, while Senator Thurman, Senator Sher
man, Senator Conkling and Speaker Blaine con
tent themselves with the ring ot hard money,
and labor for safety in the same boat.
Verily, strange things do happen !

Some of the politicians and newspapers now
propose to abolish juries as a useless expense
and too cumbersome for the expedition neces
sary in court these fast times. Now that looks
like progress. Let’s abolish the courts, too; it’s
True, long time ago there were simple-minded
people, who, poor things, never had the advan
tage of the wiseacres who live now, who thought
trial by jury of enough importance to contend
for with life, but the wisdom of some folks now-
shows how foolish that was then.
Progress ! increased wisdom ! out with juries!
It’s so much better to be tried by one man; our
lives and property would be so much safer ! And
here we have been nearly one hundred years
before we found it out! After all, we are not
certain but some people prefer not to be tried
at all. And that may be the best; who knows?
Don’t let all the wise men speak at once, for we
are young. We are not a great man, and never
have been a great man. And now that the
standard has got so high, we have despaired of
ever being a great man. Now, there is John
Buncomb, who says that Carey says, and other
writers have said, that juries are co-ordinate
branches of the courts, and that this co-ordina
tion gives to juries the right to recommend, re
port or present whatever is necessary and proper
in the opinion of the jury, without reference to
the judge, his dignity, or anything of the kind;
and further, that a judge who disallows this lat
itude to a jury is an usurper. •
As soon as we heard this proposition advanced,
we said, that is so. But to our unutterable con
fusion, as soon as we had settled down on that
as the “law of the case,’’another great man came
on and said: “Juries are nothing—they are
worse than nothing; they are too cumbersome,
and ought to be abolished.”
The climax of this argument was such that
our enthusiasm got to where we forgot our for
mer position, and then and there swore this last
was the thing. Time and reflection brought to
our mind our unfortunate dilemma.
Now, we submit, in the name of all that is
good, if great men ought not to get together and
agree; else, a common man will never know
which side to take.

each and evei'y insertion. There will be no variation from
these rates. The matter will be set and measured in

That is a mistake about its being a “patent
tooth-picker.” The mountain people will never
take to a man who has no higher ambition than
that. It’s a trap he is running, that man in the
mountains, to catch gulls. “Walk into my par
lor, said the spider to the fly.”
“ Engineer,” of Atlanta, and F. Werber, Jr.,
of Newberry, South Carolina, put us right on
the cannon ball question of the last issue. We
were clearly at fault in our answer, and a mo
ment’s reflection would have prevented the error.
Thanks to these gentlemen for the correction.
“Engineer” says: “If you will pardon the pre
sumption, I beg leave to differ with you. Under
the circumstances mentioned, the ball, having
already acquired the velocity of the car, would
leave the gun with double the velocity with which
itwould be projected from thegun atrest: hence*
at the moment it struck the ground (the car
continuing to move"), it would be exactly the
same distance from the muzzle of the gun as it
would were the gun fired while stationary, leav
ing out the resistance of the atmosphere. If,
however, the order of things be reversed, and
muzzle point toward the rear of the car, the gun
would leave the ball, and the latter would drop
to the ground in a vertical line from the point
at which the gun was fired.”
F. Werber, Jr., writes a clear and full exposi
tion of the point involved, and from it we take
the following: “It is a law of mechanics that if
two forces are applied at the same point and act
in the same direction, their resultant is equal to
the sum of the two forces. (Peck’s Elements of
Mechanics, page 25.) Now, we have acting on
the ball on the train two forces,—first, the force
of the steam engine, and second, the force of
the powder, either one of which acting alone
would give it a velocity equal to that of the train.
Since the velocities are proportioned to the
i forces (the mass of the ball being constant), it
