Cedartowm, February 13th.
WM. BRADFORD, - Editor.
Wo may be pardoned a brief
reference to our journal. We
began the publication of Tirn
Advebtiseu as a five column
monthly about four months ago.
On January Otli, bust it absorbed
the Record and began its ca
reer as a weekly, with seven
column pages. With this issue
it absoibs the Express, its only
remaining competitor, and is
now the only paper published
in the 38th Senatorial district.
It is with two-fold gratification
we refer to these evidences of
the popularity of Tm; Adveu-
tisek with the people. We are
pleased that it has proven a suc
cessful business enterprise; we
are still more pleased that our
efforts have won the approval
of the people.
It is our purpose to enlarge
and greatly irupiove onr paper
while the price will remain the
same * one dollar per year. We
trust every reader of this paper
will constitute himself a can
vasser for it and send us at least
one new subscriber. A very
little effort on their part will do
this. It is our desire to have
two thousand names on our
subscription book before the
end of the year. Will you not
aid us ?
Tl»e Southern War Claim?.
The Southern 'war claims, loyal
and otheiwise, are creating some stir
in Congress, and the newspapers,
without regard to section or party,
are giving the question n most liberal
discussion. The Democrats and Re
publicans in Congress and the organs
of each party seem to vie with each
other in indiscriminate abuse of all
these claims. We suppose that it is
hope ol making political capital that
brings about this strange unanimity
among leaders so bitterly hostile to
The present attitude of the Radical
leaders and newspapers, in regard to
these claims, is convincing evidence
that they are sadly in need of mate
rial from which to manufacture polit
ical capital. The whole scheme was
originated by their party; the court
of claims was created by a Republi
can Congress, iudorsed by a liepub-
licafl President and millions cf dol
lars expended to pay these claims at
a time wheu the Republicans had en
tire control of every department of
the Federal’goverument. It was the
avowed policy of their party, a policy
• f which its leaders loudly boasted
and by which they hoped tobuild up
and sustain their party in the South
ern States. After pursuing this line
for several years, in fact during the
whole time of the complete ascen
dency of their party, they suddenly
woke up to the fact that thepayment
of these claims is down right robbe
ry, and with an impudence unrival
led even in the dark history of their
party, charge that Southern Demo
crats are seeking to commit this rob
bery ou the natioual treasury. It
appears impossible for an electioneer
ing scheme, so transparent as this, t<>
be the least degree successful. We
know the Northern hearers are blind
ed with prejudice and totally igno
rant of all thiugs connected with the
people and politics of the South.
But it occurs to us that common
seuse would teach them that a South
ern Democrat, whose soul was in the
Confederate cause, could have no
sympathy for a man who deliberate
ly swears that he was at all times an
euemy to that esase. It is too absurd
f >r the belief ol any sane man, that
Southern Democrats would tax them
selves to pay the losses of a class of
men who rejoiced, and in s >me in-
g.auces aided, in the defeat and hu-
mihation of the States and people
whom they represent.
ll seems that an effort is to he
made to galvanize the corpse of the
late Republican parly in this State.
In its last issue the Atlanta Rejmbli-
C in says :

We reproduce the following ex
tract from the Atlanta Constitution
in order to give our readers some
idea of the hardships and privations
endured by their fellow-citizens who
sacrifice themselves upon the altar

us as congressmen. We can never
sufficiently admire the sublime, self-
sacrificing devotion of these abstem
ious patriots to the interests of the
dear people. But read for your-

indispensable untenails for which the peo

cost $957. of which amount $519 was for
wiue and whiskey, a touching evidence
that the congressional ^mourners mourned
and refused to be comforted until they ha 1

behind a demijohn. Under the head of
“stationery,” our able law-makers gar he r-

We have anxiously observed all
the events connected with the late
crisis in France and note with grat
ification the happy turn they have
taken. In our youth we loved the
land of LaFayette and Napoleon
with the ardor almost of a native,
and the interest we have in her pros
perity and progress is not yet entire
ly lost. It was with pleasure that
we witnessed the quiet resignation of
Marshal McMahon and the quiet
election and installation of his suc
cess ?r, M. Grev v, as president of the
Republic. It was a bloodless tri
umph of the will of the people, the
first in the history of that unfortu
nate country and the French Re-
puplic emerges successfully from all
her dangers and trials and misfor
tunes, demonstrating we think, that
the French people are capable of
self-government. This we are con
fident will cut of all the hopes of the
Bonaparte and Bourbon families and
give perfect peace and quiet to the

years ago for the terrible warfare it

leaders of the Republican party,
having confiscated more property and
impoverished more non-combatants
than were ever before submitted to
the hazards of war, to invent a new-
process iu the art of inflicting popu

It is related by the Globe-Demo

Emeth Jewish Congregation invited
the Second Baptist Church to hold
services in their Synagogue. The
invitation was accepted and exercises
were held afterneon and evening, and
for the-first time in the history of
the world, it is stated, tho Lord’s
Supper was celebrated in a Syna
gogue. Mr. Boyd, pastor of the
Second Church, occupied the pulpit,
and both Jews and Christians at
tended the services.
This conduct on the part of a
Jewish congregation evinces a com
mendable spirit of liberality and
charity and is a lesson, from thes*
bigoted people, from which even pro-
