The'Jaekson Herald. ROBERT S. HOWARD, Editor. JEFFERSON, l Riau noirno, nnn-h i, ixm. Ix>ts of the brainy and prominent men of the country arc parsing over the dark river. Dr. Felton's last act as a Consressman vras to put through the bill making Atlanta a port of entry. Atlanta has struck a big moral streak, as > is evidenced hj* the late raid of the police on a 1 theatrical troupe and the ordinance about gambling. The Ba-ptinl Banner js up on its legs again. An<l is out in a half sheet this week. It got caught like wc did by trying to run a news paper on credit. Col. Cash, who killed Col. Shannon in a duel last summer, in S.C.. has just been tried for the offense. The jury failed to agree, which amounts almost to an acquittal. 1 lie newspapers arc talking about cx-Gov. Bullock's cabinet chances. It strikes us that they arc rather slim. But if we were in \\ ashington City to-day we could tell more about it. I he Athens* Daily Danner lias been enlarged as we have remarked before, Bro. Waterman is making a noble ofloxt to supply the citizens of Athens with a good daily paper. llis success will depend largely upon the support he gets from her citizens. Some of our exchanges arc engaged in making a gulternatorial boom in this State for ex Gov. Bullock. Well, lie would make a good Republican Govenor, but it strikes us that the Democratic part}’ ought to make a selection out of their own ranks. The legal proceedings so far have failed to collect the interest, that ex Treasurer Renfroc is due the State. The case before the Supreme Court lias just been decided in Ren fro O’s favor. But the Court intimated the possibility of getting the money in another way. To-day President elect Garfield will be sworn in as President of this great and glo rious republic. The occasion will he made an opportunity for a grand civic and military display. From all parts of the country peo ple have assembled in Washington C’ty to behold the imposing spectacle and take in the sights. Those Democrats who, at the heel of the session, stay away from the House, thus causing the lack of a quorum and prevent the passage of the Apportionment bill by a Dem ocratic Congress, should be elected to stay at homo altogether next time. —Augusta Chron icle and Constitutionalist. We are of the name opinion, and want to see the rule en forced. We venture the assertion that all of the Georgia railroads are opposed to the railroad Commission, and while the most of them seemingly acquiesce to the regulations of the Commission, yet they are all bent and •determined to abolish the law establishing the Commission the very first opportunity they have, and they arc leaving no stone unturned in their effort to make the Commission obnoxious to the people. And we predict that they will be successful in their effort. When Hayes was inaugurated the Demo cratic press made a great cry over the massing •of troops around Washington. They assert ing that it was the intention of the Repub licans to use force if it was necessary. We notice that no objection is being made to the assemblage in Washington of an unusual large number of troops to assist in the in augural ceremonies of to-day. The precedent is a bad one and should he frowned down, especially the using of the troops of the regular army. Senator Carpenter, of Wisconsin, was a native of Morctown, Vermont, born in 1524. After two years at the military academy, lie entered the office of Rufus Choate, with whom he studied and began the practice of law. In 184S he removed to Wisconsin, where he speedily gained prominence at the bar. lie was elected United States Senator in ISG9, was defeated for re-election in 1575. and was again successful last year. lie was considered one of the ablest logicians of the Senate, and was an eloquent and forcible orator. The introduction of American street cars into Rio de Janeiro lias produced a groat change in the social and business life of the people. There are two kinds of cars one for barefooted people, 5 cents ; and one for those who wear shoes. 10 cents 31 cut liitacrtiscmcuk G I'IOKGIIA, •Isu'ltson Comity. \\ herons. Jno. C.
