It is too_ big. a thing to be disposed of in a short notice. It is by all odds the most pretentious pub lication of the sort ever attempted iu the South. From front to back it is an Atlanta production, lithographic work, illustrations and all. The mar velous spirit of 'push that has raised Atlanta from a heap of ashes and ruins to be the foremost city iu all this beautiful Southland, stood ns the ’I anu inis tujgc spirit will carry on the minutes of the company.

Our bank was notified yesterday by its agent in Washington, by wire, and the (statement appears in this morning’s paper. This is unquestionably quick work. The showing made in the statement is a fine one. The deposit account, §110,000, is good for the season and the slate of business.
