H.R. Ill'KIt, RiiNlnis* Manager,
According to tl.e News, a goat
started a (ire in Savannah yesterday.
Congress ought to tackle the loca
tion of the World’s fair. No time
should bo lost in locating it. It will
require hustling to get ready for it.
The President has appointed Judge
Brewer, of Kansas, to the vacancy on
the Supreme bench. This leaves his
partner, Miller, out.
The republicans will lower flags for
Belknap, the ex secretary of war, who
stands self convicted of ciiuies which
should have lauded him in the peni
tentiary, but the colors were not dropp
ed for ex-Secrclary of War Jcflerson
Davis, whose spotless record and de
votion to constitutional liberty,
marks him as oue of the great men of
the country. Well, the dead states
man cannot be hurt by the slight;
but this detracts nothing from the
narrowness of the republicans.
Mrs- Davis Thanks Friends.
New Orleans, Dec. 8.—The fol
lowing is self-explanatory:
New Orleans, Dec. 7, ’80.
Agc.it of iiic Associated Press:
Dear Sir :—Will you have the
kindness to say for me, through the
Assoc'ated Press, that it will he a
physical impossibility for me to
answer the thousands of telegrams of
condolence that have poured in from
all parts of the United States. I
therefore take this means of express
ing my appreciation of the profound
sympathy exhibited by so many ol
Mr. Davis’ friends to bis bereaved
and grateful family. \ cry respect
Yarina Howell Davis.
“He is gone who was so great.
Gone; but nothing could or can be
reave him of the love he made his
To-morrow, in all the cities and
villages in the south memorial ser
vices wdl be he'd in honor of -he great
chieftain who stood at the head of
the “Lost Cause” while it was some
thing more than a name, and who,
since it went down amid the smoke
and roar of battle, has s ood as a mark
for the bitterness of our enemies
This is meet and proper.
The rap’dly hurrying years are fast
removing the men who took part in
the great struggle, and when Jefferson
Davis died, ; n the hush a"d quiet of
the early morning horns, the grand
central figure ol the greatest of mod
ern wars passed away.
To-morrow his remains will be laid
away under the soil of In's own south
land, and tears will fall from the eyes
of all his people.
The Tjmes-Enierprise suggests
that a meetmg of the citizens be held
to-day at twelve o’clock in the city
hall, to arrange a programme for
memorial services. Doubtless the
opera house will be tendered by its
courteous manager, and no better
place can be found for the holding of
the services. It is also suggested that
the business houses be closed from 12
till 2, while the services arc being held,
and that all the church bells in the city
A concerted move has been started
to raise a fund for the wife and daugh
ler of the departed hero, and no belter
time can be than at the close ot the
services to-morrow. Hon. Robert G.
Mitchell has been named as chairman
for the committee for this senatorial
district, and he will receive and for
ward to the proper parties as much as
our people will give.
The care of the widow and daughter
of our dead leader is a sacred trust to
the south, and one that will be met
and discharged. No grander epitaph
could be inscribed over the immortal
dead than the words: "He served his
couiry feithfulty, stood at the head of
his people fearlessly, and ihough mil y < HORROCKS.
CONTRACTOR and builder,
But now that wife and daughter
have lost the fostering care of husband
and father, let the people see to it that
their future is placed beyond the reach
of uneasiness and want.
Go out to the meeting to day, and
attend the memorial services to mor
row from 12 to 2.
An Atlanta Company Going.
Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 8.—The Gate
City Guards to-day determined to at
tend the funeral of Mr. Davis.
.Earthquakes in Italy.
Rome, Dec. 8.—Esirtqunkc shocks,
felt to-day in the central portion of
Italy, caused no loss of life or damage
to property. Mount Vesuvius is in a
state of eruption.
When being urged by his wife to
take some medicine, a short time
before his death, Mr. Davis replied in
a whisper: “Pray excuse me.
These were the last words lie uttered.
Having had a long experience in the
northri n states, and being fully competent
to contract for and build any kind of store
house, public building?, private residences,
kc., kc., and having located in Thomasville
with a view to making it my future home, I
respectfully oiler my services to those who
may wish any kind ot building erected. I
am prepared to make contracts or superin
