Lord Wolseley’s Opinion.
Lord Wolsclcy took this view of
the future in making an address at
Birmingham: “Those who study the
map of Europe, at the present mo
ment and the condition ot things in
Europe must feel that there is hang
ing ovor us a war cloud greater than
any which lias hung over Europe be
fore. It means that when it bursts—
and burst it will as surely as the sun
will rise to-morrow—it means not, as
in former days, a contest between two
highly trained armies, but a war of
extinction, of devastation, between
great armed nations whose populations
are armed and trained to fight.”
Send Your Best Men-
The coming convention of the
Georgia State Aliiancc will be the
most important meeting ever held
by that body. Questions of vital im
portance to the order and to the state
are coming before that assembly and
we must have our truest and best
men to handle them. We want truly
conservative men who have the good
of the Alliance at heart, men who wifi
discard the wrong and sustain the
right. In the election ot delegates,
brethren, do not be guided by any
personal preference, but send the man
who you know will forget every other
interest while there except the good
of the Farmers’ AlliaDcc.
There Is an influence being brought
to bear by a certain clement in our
order which must be counteracted, or
the Alliance and its dearest interest
will again be the victims of treachery.
Look well to this matter and send
your truest men to the convention.—
Southern Alliance Farmer.
As the Chronicle has already stated,
an important bill was introduced in
..the House on Friday by Mr. Clark
Howell, of Fulton, which provides for
the election of twenty trustees of the
university, two from each Congression
al district, and the appointment o(
three by the governor from the city of
Athtns. The governor is to be ex
officio a member of the boar^, and
the term of each trustee is to be four
years. They are to be paid actual
railroad fare and expenses for not ex
ceeding one week. Mr. Howell con
tends, and with great reason, that elect
ion by the people would bring the
university, and the cause of education
in general, nearer to the people, and
woufd have the effect of removing
whatever ground there is tor the com
plaint about the control ot the univer
sity being too local in its character,
Professor Tood, of Amherst, has
discovered a spot on the sun 30,000
miles in diameter. If the theory of
Herschell that these spots arc holes in
the outer disk of the sun be correct,
this hole is big enough to let several
planets the size of the earth drop .in
to the sun without any crowding at
the entrance. Come to think of it,
this earth of ours is rather small pota
Some people turn down the corner
of a leal of a book in order to find the

of a city for the same purpose.
