He is welcome to our sunshine. Come! Farmers in Georgia are looking after their material interests, just now. They are not bothering themselves about who is going to be tbe next governor. What has become of Foraker? He seems to have subsided. But Mr. Campbell will soon be heard from, as lie delivers a sound democratic inau gural at Columbus, Ohio. The Indian is not dying ofl and vanishing from the earth any more than the Caucasian is. They have, for the most part, adopted .semi- civilized habits and live quiet lives. They arc increasing rather than de creasing. They are fairly prosperous, are raising families and increasing in the laud. Home of the most prominent of the New York clergymen have recently given their opinions as to whether or not clergymen should smoke. Mr. Talmage says: “Every clergyman must settle the question for himself according to his own conscience and belief. But as for myself, smoking is utterly out of the question. It is my opinion that many clergymen who have on their tombstone, ‘Died in the Lord,’ might have a far more appro priate epitaph, ‘Killed by Tobacco.”’ It is rumored that the White Re publican League, of Alabama, is going to petition congress to disfranchise the colored people. Maj. W. H. Hunter, the secretary of the league, said to a reporter, who questioned him on the subject the other day : "Wait until congress is organized and ready tor work, and then the country will hear from us. Harrison asked us last sum mer to keep quiet until the fall elec tions were over, and not alarm the ne groes. We have kept quiet, and the fall elections are over, so we will not keep still much longer. I am not at liberty to make public the character of our new movement, but congress will hear from us early in December.” Jefferson Davis. Yesterday the south, dnijied in mourning, paid tribute to the mem ory of Jefferson Davis. From the Potomac to the Kio Grande, sable black ami emblems of mourning were every where displayed. In the cities, towns, villages and hamlets, and even in country homes, the southern pen pie paused in their pursuits ami avo cation.-, and uttered lametations over the open grave of the leader oi the Lost Cause. The distinguished dead was embalmed afresh in the love ami hearts ot his countrymen. Words of prais-' and high eulogy fell from the trembling lips of southern orators. While expressing no disloyalty to the union—lor the south is loyal to the constitution—burning words of elo quence portrayed the high character, and the noble traits of tlie man who suffered so much for the southern people. No man was nearer the masses, or possessed in a more eminent and enduring degree the love of his people. His grave, yesterday, was a tied of flowers. The prayers of a whole peo ple went ii]) for his wife and absent daughter. It was a tribute—such tribute as is rarely paid to the dead. Jeff Davis belonged to the south, but ids fame is not hounded by geograph cal lines. It extends far beyond the confines of the American continent. It will till a conspicuous and hono rable place in the world’s history. The south need not be—nor is she— ashamed of her leaders They were the peers of the proudest and most gifted. And Jeff Davis stood at their head. A telegram has been received from President Sparks, of the Macon Con struction Company, saying that all necessary arrangements had been com pleted for pushing construction on the Macon and Birmingham railroad. A force of at lesat 1,000 men went to work several days ago on the road and the number is constantly increas ing, “if we can get them,” said one of the road’s officials, Thursday, “we will have 11,000 men at work on the line within thirty days. But, even with this large force of workmen, we do not expect to have the road built to LaCrange in lens than ten months. There will he some very heavy grad ing ami also some tunneling to do on Confirmed by the Senate. Washini.ton, Dec. 10.—The Sen ate this afternoon confirmed the fol lowing nominations: Robert I’. Por ter of New York, to be superiuten dent of the census: Lewis A. Groff of Nebraska, to lie commissioner of the general laud office ; William M. Stone of Iowa, assitant commissioner of the general land office; James M. Townsend of Indiana, recorder of the general land office. The nomination of Green 15. Kanin of Illinois, to he commissioner of pensions, was repor ted favorably by the committee o pensions. The Chaplain’s Prayer. Yesterday morning when emigre; met, the blind chaplain, Mr. Milium prayed as follows: Almighty God, the land is full of sorrow, Rachel weeping for her chil dren and will not be comforted he cause they are not; fathers for their first-born, the pride and stay of their future years; children, their parents, and millions sit cold in the atmosphere of death, mourning the departure from earth of a man dear to their hearts, who had reached the term of fourscore years. Grant that the solemn mystery of death, the common heritage of us all, the meaning of which all must know ere long, may soften and heal our hearts and feeling into the noble gentleness of the golden text uttered by the most conspicuous man of the century, in whom the ten derness of heart made greatness of station and character more ^illustrious, “Charity for all! Malice for none.’ The World Scores the Tribune The New York World flays the Tribune as lollows : The article on Jefferson Davis, which appeared yesterday in the chief republican organ in this city, mu.-.t have caused melancholy reflections in the minds of those leaders who cherish the memory of the journal’s character when Horace Greelv was its editor. It was nearly twenty-five years ago, and while the passions of the civil war were yet at white heat, that Mr. Greely went to Richmond and wrote his name as sureity on Jefferson Dav.s’s bail bond, because his honest, manly soul was stirred to indignation by the inju „„ „ , , , : lice of making this one man the scape- the line.

Sr. Loris Mo., December fi.—This morning, Messrs, l’owderly, Wright and Beaumont, representing the Labor, met the demands of the com mittee ot the Farmers’and Laborers’ union mid the basis of a federation between the farmers and Knights was agreed upon. Then it was agreed that the farmers should appoint a legislative committee of two to act in conjunction with a legislative com mittee of the knights at Washington to secure legislation in accordance with the views of both bodies. A committee on platform was agreed upon, upon land, money and trans portation reform, and an understand ing arrived at by which each organi zation will assist the other in every possible way- The executive officer of the two organizations will form central council to consult from time to time upon all matters of joint in terest. The various farmers’ bodies have agreed upon a plan of consoli dation which will, as soon as necessary references can be had to various state organizations, result in bringing about an absolute union in one body. It is probable that in time the knights will also join the farmers in actual union. IF, THOMPSON I Cl No, !3! BROAD STREET, Themasville, - Ga. unit- Pilot'. E. I).
