One doesn’t have to guess that be is a democrat. Parson Odum, tli» third parly can didate for senator in the seventh die triet, went over into Brooks comity to .canvass and apeak for his party. At Groovcrvillc ho bad an audience composed of himself ami another man. He felt decidedly too lonesome to s|ieak. That’s tbe'kind of demo or&ts you’ll Hut! in Brooks county; they let third party und republican politicians severely alone.. Col. W. H. Griffin, of Valdosta,— nnr Billy—ha* oast aside his widow- erhood. He was married on Wed nesday evening of last week to Miss Carrie Abbott, of . West Randolph, VermonR, in the first Congregational church of that city. -The Gazette joins everybody in Berrien county In wishing the manly groom and bis fair bride success and happiness with nany years of married life. Two Motlimllst I’ronclu-r* Mmii Iu Vocal t-omVnt at Nitslivillo. Some eight or ten days ago the uttermost parts of Berrien comity were flooded with dodgers announc ing that Rev. B. W. Iluokabee, of Sparks, was to speak at Nashville last Saturday in tho interest of the third party. The democrats began at once to search round for a champion to pit against him, mid found such tin one In the person of Rev. J. M. Hendry, of Brooks county. Promptly on Saturday morning at 10 o’clock the speakers and people— as many as could get into the court house comfortably- -were on hand. It was arranged for Rev. Ilendry to speak first. Rest Ruokubeo to fol low him, aud then Rev. Heudry to jfenclude in twenty minutes. Both orators distinguished themselves, but at the close of Rev. Iluokabee’s speech John Barleycorn displayed his presence hy warming some of the boys up to a lighting attitude. J. B. was very vociferous and belligerent, much so that Rev*. Ilendry could not mako his replication speecli and dis missed the audience with the declu- tlon that his opponent hud said nothing worthy of a reply. The Gazette does not approve of ministers of the iiospel of Jjsns Christ spouting politics on the street corners or from the hustings, beoause it lessens their influence mul power for good in the master’s cause, and hence he never lends his presence to an occasion where such u departure from ministerial ethics is on the pro gram. What a spectacle these reverend gentlemen presented to the people present! Men whose calling it is to lend the people in the paths of sobri- t.y, pence and harmony, and who, in- stciKl of making inflammatory politi cal speeches to an excited crowd pf their fellow-men, should tm preach ing glad tidings of “l’eaoe on earth and good will to men.” The Gazette hopes the like will not oocur in Berrien county again. The political agony is over. And such a licking as republican ism and third partyism has received at the hands of an aroused democracy is without a parallel since the days following reconstruction. In no comity in the slate was dcm ocraoy more thoroughly organized limn in Berrien, mid on Wednesday her old time majority of 800 was placed in the ballot boxes.

Tlie democratic majority in the sixth senatorial district about 1,500; in the secqiid congressional dislrict is over 5,000; in the stale of Georgia fully 70,000. The Gazette is sat- isiled that when tho official count is made, Georgia will show up a ma jority of 80,000. The lentil congressional dislrict gave Northen a majority over Peck of uliout 1,000, and Black's election to congress is assured by' a majority of at least 900, M r. Watson's pop. ularity will not save him. Hon. J. B. Paulk is elected Irwin county’s representative iu the legisla ture; also Sumner in Worth, Norman in Colquitt, Sims in Brooks, West in Lowndes, Johnson iu Clinch, Wilcox iu Coffee and Stulvey in Echols—all democrats. While it is propel for democrats to rejoice over this overwhelming vie tory, still to indulge in personal in sult and offensive guying will prove productive of more harm than good jyiid wo hope it will be eschewed.

Tho introdnetory sermon was preached by Eider 11. T. Dowling. The association was organized by electing Elders W. F. Cox and II. T, Dowling moderator and olerk, re, spectively. The churches represented in tho association had full delegations preen cut, Ramali, Enigma and Salem churches were not represented by either letter or messengers. Mt, Zion church, Colquitt county, upon application was taken, under the watchcure of the hotly and into full fellowship ns soon ns her letter of dismicsion from Mercer is received by tho clerk of this association. The session was harmonious throughout and considerable good was accomplished. The reports of committees in be half of the various interests of tho churches composing tho association wore encouraging; some good mission work was accomplished during tho post, year, but there remains much more to lie done ami the delegates seemed to be awake to their duty m tho premises. A larger amount of mission funds were sent up by the,churches tlmn at any previous association, and tho prospects for tho future are eucour- aging. The new executive committee elected by (lie body is composed of some of the most sterling business men of the denomination in this sec tion, viz: Messrs. C. Ik Beckwith, J. K! McCranic, -5. S.-Lindspy, J. H, UidhoUn nml W. 11. Morris. The committee met immediately after its election unit ^elected Mr. y. II. Beck with chairman, and Mr. W. H. Mor, ris secretary and treasurer. Among the visitors present were Elders AY. E. Morris from llomer- ville, J. A. 8carboro from New Kbe- nezer, W. J. Sullivan from Mallary and J. F. Reeves from Mercer asso ciations. Elder J. F. Reeves represented tho Christian Index, but we did not learn with what success. Elder A. Scarboro represented Freddie Shipp Female College, now being built at Cordele, mid took sub scriptions to tho building fund iinldliiiting to more than n hundred dollars. Correspondents were sent to tlm Mercer, Mullury, Houston and Ho- nterville associations. Messrs. C. li. Beokwilh and B. T, Allen were sent as delegates to tho state convention. Several members volunteered to go as delegates to tho south Georgia convention. The hospitality of the people of Brushy Creek neighborhood is uni bounded, and received a vote of thunks for their generous care of tbo association. The association proper udjourned Saturday afternoon to held its next session with Mt. Zion church, Col-, quilt county. A mission mass meeting was held Sunday morning, at 10 o’clock, lead by Elders. AY. F. Cox and J. F, Reeves. The missionuty sermon wospreacbi ed by Elder J. A. Scarboro, to a largo and attentive congregation. Those who heard this sermon are unquali fied in the assertion that it was the most convincing defense of the Jew* trine of missions ever preached in tiiis section of country. A small coli‘ lection was taken for misstouary work within the bounds of the association. The T. ami T. Though the clouds of uncertainty whioh overshadows the Tifton und Thomasviile railroad arc omiousaud calculated to cause its friends to despair of its being completed soon, the..Gazette is inclined, to believe that its importance as a feeder to tbe Georgia Southern and Florida issitf (talent to cause its early completion whet her it remains in the hands of the Receiver or is said.
