The meeting that is to’ take place on the.-1 tli Wednesday in October next, j dno ordinary one.

According as j the fitness, for the work- shall be fo.und i ’ greatest, the seLctioii should be made, ■aud it should be made witfi the greatest unanimity. There ‘are no parties in j Georgia now —none whatever. . Every member -of the convention ; shouM desire-'for Georgia,- the position she heretofore occupied among her sis_ fer. States of the Union —a- position of sovereignty-, where her voice was heard and’ felt in the councils of the nation. • ‘ When once the machinery of the j State government is in motion, tho task will be comparitivelyeasy to regulate it. But’the duty of the convention wall be to originate the machinery itself, and to’ adapt it’ to the great changes that have taken place in our social organization.— As the establishment of our State policy will depend upon the convention-, the • importance of.the work, and the charac ter of the men best calculated to-, serve the people- are apparent. Then let us ■determine to bury all personal feeling of anuhosity or prejudice, and bring, to • bear the exercise of calm judgment in Tie selection of delegates. — Telegraph. A Frenchman, resolved to be rid of. life;- went a little before high tide to a post setup by the seaside. • He had pro -vided himself with a ladded, a pistol, a bundle of matches, and a vial of prison. Ascending the ladder* he tied one end of the. rope to the post,- and the other end around’ his-neck ;.’ then, lie’ took the’ • poison, set his clothes do fire; pul the •muzzle •of ’the pistol’ to his-head and kicked away ‘ the ladde’c/1 In kicking down the ladder, he slunifcd the pistol so that; the bail’ misAJtl his head arid cut through the . rope- by which he was suspended ; he fell into the sea, thus ex •tinguishing ’ the flames of his clothing, and the. sea water, which he involuntary • ly swallowed, counteracted the poison,, and thus, in spite of his precautions he remained unhanged, unshot unpoisoned, and drowned.
