President Arthur proposes to be one of the foremost stalwarts of his party. We note with pleasure the fact that the authorities are making the ncces sary arrangements to enlarge the Lunatic Asylum. The work cannot be accomplished too speedily. Mrs. Stephenson, of Gwinnett coun ty, who Was shot by an unknown person several months ago, is dead, and a Coroner’s jury have returned a verdict that she died from the effects of wounds inflicted upon her by her nephew, Elbert Stephenson. The reports in regard to Senator Hill’s condition are still conflicting. Some state that the wound is healing nicely and that it will not materially interfere with his speech, others say that lie will hardly recover, and that bis speech is materially impaired. The Mexican Central Rrilroad Com pany have reduced the pay of their fif teen thousand laborers from thirty-one and a ■quarter cents a day to twenty five cents. The men howled a little, but as they knew the company could get all the -laborers they wanted at that figtroe, <tbey stuck to their spades and tpicka. A Washington, D.C.,correspondent ways Malt .'Secretary Lincoln will be rdtaiimed in Mr. Arthur’s Cabinet if he svarfts *oke position, solely because he is the -son ef his father. It strikes us that the ywaag man will cling on all tfhe -same.. It makes no difference to a so he is tl*e*e. ’Secretafry Windora is exceedingly fortunate. lie resigned his position as one of the Senators from Minnesota to acoapt the position of Secretary of t4e Treasury in Garfield’s Cabinet, now he has resigned that position and the Legislature of Minnesota have just elected him again as United States Senator to fill his own unexpired term. We call this luck of the best kind, and it falls to but few men. The latest Indian disturbance is from Arizona. The Salt river Indians are mad with their agent because lie makes them work as a punishment for getting drunk. They have become indignant at such treatment, and propose to wipe out the Agency. And along with this comes the statement that there are but fifteen soldiers to protect the lives and property at the Agency. Yet the policy of the Gover moot is to keep heavy garrisons in the East and South, when the soldiers should be where they are needed. The Philadelphia Reconi says : “Mr. Thomas F. Bayard held his place as President pro tempore of the Senate long enough to secure a most remark, able expression of confidence and good will at the hands of the people and the press of the country, without reference to political divisions. It is safe to say that no such demonstration would have followed the elevation of any other Senator. Mr. Bayard enjoys the con fidence of the country. Greater ad vantage than the proof of this fact he could not have expected to obtain by continuance in an undesirable office.” We are hardly of the above expressed opinion. On the oontrary, we think Mr. Bayard showed his true inward ness when ho suffered his own greed and ambition to overide tho good of his party. Mr. Bayard may profit by his temporary honor, hut if wc know ourselves we are done with him. Martin Institute. Patrons are requested to call on my son, F. A. Glenn, and close their ac counts. The money is needed, and settle rnents must be had in some form this fall or winter, I have waited long, and it is not possible to indulge further. Most of the accounts are small and can be easily met, but if cash can not be paid in full let the balance be closed by note. FI ease do not delay. JNU. W. GEORGIA XIAIm. The Lou'svillc News SavS there ‘*is a malignant sore throat articling peo ple in Burke county that 19 sitigularlv fatal. Dr. Murdock Sitvs it is quite different fYottt diphtlittflh. When the windpipe becomes affected there is scarcely any hope of recovery.” Adam Hill, colored, of Coffee coun ty, sent a boy to the station after three hundred poiinds of bacon. While re turning lie was attacked by two ne groes, who took the meat from him. The Coffee Caunty Gazelle says this i3 the second time Hill has been rob bed of his bacon this year. Buena Vista Arqns: “Mr. Oliver while digging a well for Mr. A. J. MoElmurry struck a vein of gas. He called for the basket, which was lower ed for him, but before lie could be drawn out he became insensible and fell to the bottom, a distance of twen ty-two feet. Fortunately a spraine 1 ankle was the only injury received.” A. Fallon Bros., of Philadelphia, have sent to the Atlanta Exposition a sample of cotton grown by them near that city, and they say that they have been so successful in Pennsylvania cotton growing this year that next year they intend to plant 300 acres. They have proved conclusively, the} 7 think, that cotton can be raised in the Keystone State. Walker County Messenger: “Enoch Hamiiiom says that Lee Bryan was bitten on the arm by aspreading ad der Friday last, while pulling gra-us for bis mare. Jim Knox, ti e colored conjurer, corded his arm al ove the el bow sucked the wound, applied a freshly killed chicken, buried the arm in the ground and showed that if he did not understand adding, he knew what to do with the work of an adder. No serious results followc l under his treatment.” A Harris county correspondent of the Columbus Enquirer says: ‘One of those sickening accidents occurred in our town on the 19th inst. Allen Hightower, a little colored bov of about, ten years of age, while pulling motes from the gin, had his hand caught by the saws and both arms above the elbow completely lacerated. Both arms were amputated by Drs. Mitchell and Copeland, and it is prob able that the little fellow may survive bis great misfortune.” Augusta Evening News: “Mr. J. 11. Mims had two horses taken from him during the war by the government, in return for which lie reoieved S7OO in bonds of the Confederate Government. This morning he brought the tmndsto town and sold them for a dollar and ten cents. Mr. Mims was so happy over this big money and interest that he offered us his country seat, ‘ldle wilde,* dirt cheap for our advertising bill, and reported post this morning a little out of town, at the ice house.” “Georgia’s exhibit,” says the Con stitution, “promises to be one of the best in the entire list. Commissioner Henderson has returned from the Macon Fair and already has brought to Atlanta the best of that large and interesting exhibit. Indeed nearly ever article w hich illustrated Georgia s resources at Macon is already in At lanta for a place in the Exposition. Yesterday the cars were carried out to the grounds’ and this morning they will be unloaded under the supervision of Commissioner Henderson.” Columbus Enquirer: “One who was in a position to know informs us that the number of cases of measles in Early county is unprecedented, lie states that there are at this time not less than six hundred cases of measles in the county, and that in man}’ cases it has proved fatal. Ou one planta tion there are seventy five cases. At Arlington there is a great deal of sick ness, and in almost every case of typhoid fever, which was preceded by measles, the disease terminates in death. There arc also a number of cases of measles in the town of Blake ly.” Columbus Enquirer: “Another of those terrible accidents, of which we have recorded so many recently, hap. pened Saturday on Mr. J. Kyle’s plan tation, about six miles below the city. A negro girl, a daughter of Jerry Banks, took a can of kerosene with which to kindle a fire. The can ex ploded, the girls clothing took fire, and in five hours she wuj a corpse. When the clothing of the girl caught she threw down the burning oil and ran into the yard by a well, when a negro man caught her and extinguish ed the flames by pouring water on her. The house came near burning, but the timely arrival of a negro who heard the girl’s screams saved it from des traction.” Grilfin Neics: “Last night, justafter tho circus performance, while the ele phants were being driven through the streets, jnst as they reached the cor ner of Ilill and Broadway, some thoughtless person gave one of the animals a piece of tobacco. The ele phant had no sooner noticed what the tobacco was when he Instantly became infuriated and made a rush for his teaser, right through a crowd of 400 or 500- people, breaking loose from his keeper. Kvery body scattered of course, and the scene presented a frightful stampede. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt, and the mad dened elephant was finally captured. Things looked rather squall)', though, for a while, as the elephant was in thorough earnest and roared and bel lowed with terrific rage.” licit) Hilocrtiseuiciits. J. H.
