The Show is Coming. —Another big ani

fore Christmas ! Privately we are opposed
to all such things, though wo may go to
see the animals ; and it may be necessary
to help take care of the children while they
look at the men and horses aud things !
The little folks all have a curiosity to see
the show just one time, and it looks hard
not to gratify a curiosity so natural and
reasonable. But if we have any doubts
about the propriety of attending, wo had
better not go; and it costs something to
indulgo in such amusements, and there are
soveral ways in which we can make a more

Johnson, has had a fine school and we be

Attaway is also an accomplished young
man, and bids fair to succeed in hisjlionora
ble and useful vocation. Misses Safford aud
Moon have had a very interesting school of
misses, and their unremitting labors have
been appreciated by tho community.
There have also been other smaller schools
jn town, all of which have contributed to
the general good. There is no better evi
dence of the prosperity of our place than
the lively interest which is manifested up
on the subject of education. Cartersville
affords superior educational advantages,
aud wo ought to have institutions of leani
ng, which would rival any in the State.

Show! On Thursday evening of las
week we were visited by a beautiful show
er of snow, which continued to fall until
late at night. On Thursday morning fal
lowing, the ground was covered about three
inches deep, and the wide spread carpet of
white, presented a fine appearance. It is
unusual to see so much snow so early in
the season, in this latitude.
Show Balling ! The boys in town en
joyed rare sport last week, snow balling
each other and other freedmen. They
would attack one of “the nations wards,”
and if he proved to be sulky they would let
him alone, but if they could succeed in get

Answer to a Correspondent.—An old
farmer friend wants to know if we think

We reply that we think it is cold enough to
kill poor ones, but that fat ones are in no

How to Manage’em.— We asked a friend
of ours, who|runs a farm near this place, and
works freedmen, how he managed to make
them work when they were disposed to be
idle ? “why,” said he “I holler at ’em just
as I did before they were free:” “But,”
said he, if they don’t mind you what do
you do then ?” Holler agin,” he replied !

II AxGHT & Co’s CiRCUS, MuSiUM AND
Menagerie.—This Southern institution,
since visiting us one year since, has won a
brilliant national reputation, and achieved
a glorious pecuniary triumph. It has been
largely augmented in its arenic and zoo
logical departments, and now ranks among
the first exhibitions of this country and
Europe. The papers all over the South
teem with excellent praises of its merits,
and the Eastern .nd Provincial press are
unanimous in their lavish commendation.
The Waterville (Maine) Mail says “the
company gave the best satisfaction. They
met all their promises ; showing a superior
lot of horses, first class performers, and au
entertainment more free from objectionable
features than any seen here for years,”
This is saying a great deal for a perfor
mance after it is over.
The programme for this day of exhibi
tion will be a s follows : A grand balloon
ascension will be made from the lot near
the pavillion. Prof. Itenno will go up
clouds, carried on his monster
balloon “ Tallulah.” The process of in
flation is new, hot air being substituted for
the old plan of gas. All can see the meth
od used by the discomfitted French to carry
messages over the heads of the victorious
Prussians. Harry Wambold, the celebra
ted rope walker, will promenade from the
grouud to the top of the centre pole, on a
single wire, and return. The names of the
artists of the arena connected with this ex
hibition are so well known to the public
(hat it is not neoessary to more than refer
to them. The company is large, well se
lected, and of excellent material. A thrill
ing scene is enacted with wild animals at
each performance. M’lle Minnie Wells,
who was so torn and mangled in (he Bow
ery Theatre, last year, by the celebrated
lion “ Prince,” assisted by Gustave Berg,
will enter the den and feed these beasts of
most ferocious nature. Everybody will go
to see this great arena and zoological exhi
bition, and behold the balloon ascension,
which takes place at one o’clock in the
afternoon—and immediately afterwards the
aerial pedestrianism of Mr. Wambold.—
This Circus will exhibit in Cartersville,
on Wednesday, 20th of this month.

what difficult of solution. ‘* O, when will
my time come!” is the exclamation of many
a heart, wo suppose. We would probably
take more interest in this mat ter, if we had
any assurance that the Printers would not
be forgotten in the future as they have been
in the past. We think there are instances
in which we could reader va'uable assist

HAIGHT & CO’S
CIRCUS, MUSEUM. MENAGERIE
A little less than one year ago, when this grand enterprise was organized in Atlanta,
Ga., many sagacious people predicted tailure in its infancy: but the unprecedented suc
cess crowning it everywhere it has been, has satisfied them of the error of their judg
ment. No exhibition on tho road has given greater satisfaction, and none have achieved
as great a degree of popularity. Neither labor nor money has been spared to make it
the most extensive and choice exhibition on the road, and tho almost da'ly tremenduous
audiences applauding tho feats of the different artists have served to stimulate the man
agement to even greater efforts. Throughout the Middle States and New England, the
Dominions of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Gape Breton and
New Fouqdlaad, there ha3 been one voice from the press and public as to the iperits in
trinsic of this mammoth enterprise. Messrs. HAIGHT # CO. feel an excusable pride in
thus referring to their repeatod triumphs and the praise of the world which has but one
verdict as to the high character and superiority of this first class arenic and zoological
