Boston wants a bank. All right. Public office is a public trust.— Grover Cleveland. Public office is a family trust.— Benj. Harrison. The Florida legislature has pinged a law prohibiting fishing on Suuflay, This will cut off the rations of a good many colored citizens in that State Georgia granite is coming to the front. The piers for the gre£t bridge which is to span the Mississippi river at Memphis, are to be of Georgia granite. Quarries in several other states competed lor the work.’ Hurrah for Georgia. Mr. Joseph M. Brown, General Traffic Manager of the W. & A. R. R., and the Atlanta Journal are en gaged in discussing the condition of the State road. The Journal says the lessees have allowed it to run down, until it is dangerous; Josep'i says they have done no such a thing, etc. The diocese of Georgia, which has been in session several days, will vote on the question of whether or not they are in favor of changing the name of their church from the “Protestaut Episcopal Church” to the “Church of America.” The brethren arc said to be divided on the subject. Hon. Jefferson Davis has accepted an invitation to attend the centennial celebration of the adoption of the fed eral constitution by North Carolina, which took place at Fayettevill;, No vember 21st, 1789. Mr. Davis ac cepts on condition that he will not be asked to act as orator of the day. Dead. Col. Albert R. Lamar, late editor of the Macon Telegraph, is dead. He died on Saturday morningpalter an illness of a few weeks. Col. La mar came of a distinguished family. His lineage was a proud one. True to the South, a knight of the old regime which gave Southern chivalry a distinctive character, Col. Lamar illustrated many of those character istics which have made Southern men famous the world Ab a writer he ranked with tho foremost in the country. His style was terse and vigorous. Few men were better posted in the political history of the country, or who knew, better, the public men of the last decade. But he has written his last editorial. The big, busy brain, no longer evolves flashes of thought. May his rest be peaceful. White Caps in Mitchell. We had hoped that White Capism would be confined to some ofthesiatei- where it originated, but the trouble has appeared in our own state, and in an adjoining county Lawlessness is never excusable. We are glad to see that Governor Gordon is taking hold ol this imported evil in a very vigorous style. A dispatch to the Morning News from Atlanta yeslerday says : The citizens of Mitchell county have become both alarmed and indignant at the lawlessness prevailing around Pelham, and have appealed to tilt governor for aid in suppressing it. The outrages committed by disguised men in the night time reported to the exec utive were the burning of theginhouse of Glouser Brothers in Pelhant, break ing into the house ol Jane Nix and whipping her and three other v:..ite women, the whipping of Henry Butler and his son, and the severe beating given a number of negroes. The gov ernnr to-day announced Ins intention ol breaking up this lawlessness if it exhausted every power and resource of the state. He directed the secreta ry of state to issue a proclamation offering a reward of $250 for the ap prehension of the guilty parties engag ed in the incendiarism, and $100 each for the parties who were connected with the whipping outrages. The or dinary of Mitchell has been instructed to post this proclamation throughout the county. Farming will Pay. The Augusta Chronicle thus sunt marize.s a few bristling points on the subject of farming: First. That planting, when com ducted with intelligence, and follow ed as a business, will pay, and pay well. Second. That the supplies of the farmer, so far as possible, should he made at home. Third. That farming properly couducted not only secures a living, but can he made to furnish a generous support. Fourth. That farming like every thing else, requires dost, personal at tention, and good financiering. That books should be kept and accounts itemized on the farm as accurately as in the store, and that there is not only subsistence, but wealth, in farming in Georgia, if men will he content to dig it out. The Cotton Plant. What a royal plant it is! The world waits in attendance on its growth. The shower that falls whis pering on its leaves is heard around tho eorth. The sun that shines on it is tempered by the prayers of all the people. The frost that chills it and the dew that descends from the stars is noted, and the trespass of a little worm on its green leaf is more to England than the advance of the Russian army on her Asian outnosts. It is gold from the instant it puts forth its tiny shoot. Its fibre is cur rent in every bank, and when loosing its fleeces to the sun, it floats a sunny banner that glorifies the field of the humble farm ; that man is marshal under a flag that will compel alle- giauce of the world, and wring a sub sidy lTom every nation on earth. It is the' heritage that God gave this peo ple forever as their own when ho A MISTRIAL DECLARED arched our skies, established our mountains, girt about us with oceau, loosed the breezes, tempered the sun shine, and measured the rain. Our’s aud our children’s forever. An prince ly a talent as ever came from his hand to mortal stewardship.—H. W. Grady. No Jute Bagginq. Birmingham, Ala., May It).—The southern farmers, at least every one over. belonging to any of their numerous organizations, is now pledged to use uo jute bagging next season. A resolu tion to that effect was reported to the convention at a late hour last night and adopted, but to-day, at the re quest of the representative of the bag ging trust, the question was reopened. Pensacola, Fla., May 18.—“The largest deal in yellow pine property ever made in this section was closed here to-day. The Southern States Land and Lumber Company made the final payment and took charge of the Muscogee Lumber Company’s property, the George Robinson Mill Company and the Michigan Lumber Company, aggregating five mills with 400, 000 acres of land and about forty miles of railroad. The deal involved coniiderably more thau 81,500,000. The property is now owned by an En glish syndicate.” We have frequently called the at tention of owners to the increasing value of pine lands, and the danger of the great bodies of these lands falling into the hands of big syndicates. Hold on to your pine lands. have In 4 he Arrington-Lane Murder Case. Quitman, Ga., May 17.—The court was engaged in the transaction of some minor business this morning, until the hour of ten came. At that time His Honor beckoned to an officer, 1^10 quickly drew near, and. after a word from the court, noisel’ssly withdrew from the room. Immediately the jury in the Arrington case filed into the presence of Judge Hansell, and, amid absolute silence, took their stand. I heir finding had been anticipated, and tew were present, comparatively speaking. THE -RESULT REACHED. Addressing H. D. Byrd, Judge Han sell said: “Mr. Foreman, have von, 0 you not, reached a verdict?” “We have not,” said Byrd. “Are you likely to agree?” "We are not—no prospect.’ “Your duties,” continued Judge Hansell,“have been long and arduous. I have felt it to be my duty to retain you up to the present time. All par ties are satified that you have consci entiously discharged your duties' with fidelity No report of bad conduct on your par has reached my ears. I thank you for having honesth endeav ored to do your duty in this case.” Judge Hansell then read, in open court, an order declaring a .mistrial. The jury was then discharged from the further consideration of the case, and from attendance in court for the remainder efihe term. Foreman Byrd then handed in a card containing thanks to the court and officers for courtesies extended the jury during the trial. In a few moments thereaf ter court adjourned for the term. HOW THE JURY STOOD. From beginning to end the trial last ed ten days. The jury were in the jury room seventy hours. During that time they did not ask the court to charge them on any point. But two ballots were taken during the oyhole of their consideration ol the cash. The first was quickly after going to the jury room. Each man wrote his ballot, and upon examination of all the votes, nine were for acquittal and three were for conviction. H. D Byrd put tn one of those votes. B. C. Herring an other and J C. Humphreys the*- third. The next ballot was taken this morn ing at 8 o'clock. It stood eleven for acquittal and one for conviction. H. D. Byrd was the twelfth man. Her ring and Humphreys came over to the side of the defendant within two hours after the first ballot was taken, and a verdict might have been rendered then bad it not b.ten for the tenacity ol Ju. ror Byrd The point about which they could not agree was that of "cooling time,” so Mr. Byrd, the foreman of he jury, staled to your correspondent. __ Thus ends, for the present, at least, a' case that has kept public feeling ai a high tension. We take the above front the Quit man correspondent of the Constitution By-the-way, the Constitution publish ed the fullest and most comprehen sive repot ts of the trial ot any paper m the state. George Washington was an enthu siastic Mason. In a letter to the Rhode, Island Masons he savs: “Being persuaded that a just application of the priuciplcs on which the Masonic fraternity is founded must be produc tive of private virtue and public pros perity, I shall always be happy to ad vanco the interest of the society and to he considered by them as a deserv ing brother.” $1,000 Reward.

In 1873 I contracted blood poison, which soon developed into its severest secondary form, with blotches nnd ugly’ sores all over my body, which totally- disabhd me for more than a year. Tho doc otw treated me all the time, The disease stcadi y growing worse acd worse, I was unable to work for more than a year; finally was persuaded, to take Swift’s Specific. After takiug seven bottles I was sound and well, and have not felt a symptom of the disease since. This was sixteen years ago. Joe Vaughn.

London, May 18.—Mrs. Maybrich, niece of Jefferson Dnvis, and a French Canadian aristocrat by birth, has been arrested at Livernool on a charge of poisoning her husband with arse nic. Mr. Maybrich, who was a prom inent merchant, died with symptoins of slow poisoning.' Ailis brother, Michael, known as Stephen Adams, a musical composer, and other rein tives, hesitated to act on reports cir culated as to the cause of death. To day a county magistrate, Col. Biddell, accompanied by the chief of polite, went to the Maybrich residence. They were told that the lady was ill 4n bed. Medical men were summoned, and, after an examination, they pro nounced her ’ fit to hear the charge. Her solicitor demanded to know the nature of the evidence. The chief of police responded that he had grave evidence that the woman had given rA." ' * . . , \ arsenic to her husband from time to The trust was anxious to make terms, time> The officials went to the bed- but not enter into a contract for the entire season. The original resolution, pledging the farmers to use only cot ton bagging, was called up again and unanimously adopted. It was further resolved that the state alliances each cotton growing state, would erect factories for tho manufacture of the cotton bagging. Montana Democratic. St. Paul, Minx., May It).—A Helena special says the republicans concede the central of the Montana constitutioual convention to the dem ocrats by from three to five majority. The Herald (rep.) figures the conven tion at 38 democrats, 35 republicans, one labor and one independent, but this is partly estimated. One district at Missoula is so close that the official count will be Beaded to decide the election. . The vote was light, to which fact the republicans ascribe their defeat. They were usintr snow plows on the Central Pacific Railway last week. Come South, gentlemen. MAKE A REST.
