ikuncofiilc feette. PUBLISHED BY J. C. McMICHAEL. BAMESVILLE, GEORGIA. THURSDAY, - - FEB. 7,1878. Deni. Pierce M. 13. Young, of Georgia, has been appointed by the President to represent the cotton States at the Paris Exposition. r i is a lacy telegraphic corres pondence going on between W. E. Chandler and E. A. Burke concern ing an agreement reduced to writing at Worm leys hotel, which made Days President. The agreement doubtless will be made public. Governor Colquit, a, few days since commissioned Mr. \Y. T. Newman to go to Washington and make an elfort to secure more arms for the State of Georgia, The matter having been brought before Senator Hill, he call ed on the Secratary of war who promptly issued an order to the Gov ernor of Georgia for two hundred stands of the improved patera of government arms. The Louisiana lieturning Boaid, must meet stern justice if the State couits of Louisiona can administei it. In the frenzy of the Returners they have done everything in their power to escape the law. When all chicanery and dodging could not shield them from arrest, and their cases, were brought to trial before the State court, they appealed to Justice Bradly to transfer their case to the L T . iS. court, The telegrams bi ing us intelligence of Bradley’s de cision, which is averse to the Re turners. After hearing all the facts and records in the case, he declines to interpose. They then must meet their fate, let it b good or bad. Hon. B. 11. Hill, in his letter to tlie Atlanta silver “lunacy” the men to whom lie mainly owes hiselccti n to the United Stales senate, justifies his opposition to the silver bill and defiant ly t 11s his Georgia consiituen's that “n > a nount of clamor, abuse or slan der, foieign or dome-tic, from either thoughtless or designing people, cm drive me one i ch from the discharge o ! what I know to be my duty.” ‘'Our Ben did net talk in that tone to ihe m inkers of the Georgia legis -1; lure wh n lor two mortal lion "s he sited and plead to them for their votes to make him senator. i lie pri ic and ambition of his soul then was to tinly and faithfully r. p iv sent ilie*}) ople ol Geoigiain the na tional councils as no other man in Georgia but himself could represent t: em. He del not believe 'hen that lour-fif lis of th ( j e pie of Georgia we e either knaves, tools or lum tics. 15 it .r. iill lias a five years lease of office now. He lies reached the gal of his ambiti n. Georgia lias has n thing more to give him and he ca:i afi'ov.l to Kick down the ladder by wh ch he clin bed to his present eminence.—Savannah Xews. Charles Nordiioff: About the intrigues anil swindlesof the Return ing Board, Air. Chandler, accords ing to liis own account, knows on■ -ugh to make him a good witness, ami about that is h< ped lie will tell a1 ho knows. The Administration does not trouble ’tseif about the members of the Louwanna Return ing Board. The President holds his place by the decision of the Electoral Commission and not by any frauds which may have been committed in Loui-anna. If wrong was done there ho will not protect t'.e wrong doers nor seek to stand between them and exposure and pumshment for their crime. The concealment of wrong-doing might embarrass him; its discovery and punishment certainly would not. The Eastern War. Last. /Saturday brought the Eas tern war to a close by an acceptance of terms. A St. Petersburg telegram states that Russia has accepted Austria’s proposal of a conference for settling the European question resulting from the war* A telegram lrom Cairo announces that the Grand Yisier of Turkey lias tele graphed to the Khedive that a prac tical armistice was leady for signa ture. The Sultan telegraphed the Czar accepting the peace conditi ms and aski and the Czar to stop the ad vance of the Russian Troops. The Czar replied that he was about to give orders to that effect. The ar mistice and peace preliminaries were signed and military movements stop ped. Another bloody and terrible war hasbeen’en tel. The horrors and mi fieri ngs and cruelty of this t ;e ast, perhaps has no equal in his tory. There i- great satisfaction at the settlement of peace preliminaries, The following are the conditions of the protocol: i. Piie erectionjjf Bulgaria iato a principality. !. A war indemnity or teu’itory in c mponsafion. . j 3. Tha independence of Roumania - Servia and Mentenegro with an in crease of territory for each. 4. Reforms in Bosnia and Herze govina. o. An ulterior understanding be tween the Sultan and the Czar regar ding the Dardanelles. C. The evacuation of the Danubean fortresses and Ereeromn. Hobart Pasha lias received orders to hold the fleet in readiness to sail as it is believed for the Piraeus. Melicmet Ali Pasiia has been ap pointed to the command of the troops m Crete aud Adashides a Christian has been appointed governor of the island. Peter Cooper. The well known founder of Cooper Institute, of New York, which has been such advantage bene to those who nave reaped the (its, now contemplates establishing a similar institution in South Carolina, as we learn from a New York cores pondent of the Cincinnati Enquirer Before the late civil war there flour ished at Limestone Springs, Spirtau burg County, South Carolina, a young ladies’ seminary, the proprietor of which grew very rich. When the war broke out he loaned all his means to the Confederate Government, and a little later was bankrupt. Since that time, the school-building and its surroundings have been for sab. To the present owner, Thomas 11. Bo tnar, a large sum of money has been loaned for four years by Mr. Cooper, who holds a mortgage upon the prop erty, with the privilege of taking it in part payment at the end of that time, ‘‘if meanwhile, ho finds it to be suited tor his purp iso.” Mr. Coop er has written to Govern w Hampton asking upon what conditions the State would accept the gift of the property, which consists of ten build ings and 800 acres of land, upon winch should be maintained a man ual labor institution, or a school of science and art, similar lo the one which now exists at the Cooper Union in New York To this letter Governor Hampton has replied in very cordial terms, thanking Mr. Cooper and assuring linn that the Legislature would accept almost any conditions, About the only condiii m Mr. Cooper will impose, he says, is that no taxes shall be assessed on the property for any purpose. He be lieves that in a short time the institu tion which he contemplates as a possibility would become self-sun porting. Washington, I). C. Feb. 1878. The current of Congressional affairs w, s slightly disturbed by the litile disagreement between Senators Blaine and Hoar. The dispute was ostensi bly over the parts played respective ly by Maine arid Massachusetts in the war of 1812, but t ie real casus belli was the vo e of the Massachusetts delegation in the Cincinnati Conven tion. It is conceded that the Bland Sil ver bill will pass the Senate by a two third vote. That the President will veto the bill is feared by its friends but many say he will sign it with the understanding that the Government shall continue to p.y the interest on the public debt in gold. The female suffragists are Hill besieging congress As the women of Jas.-achusetts alone pay taxes on $131,000,000 of proper ty who can say with justice abut they should not have a voice in legisla tion. Among the contributors to art in the Capital Mrs. Fla.-sett, stands in the front rank. She is an American lady who has struggled in the thorny and uncertain paths of art, until she has touched tiie topmost round in the golden ladder of fame. Before the lire this lady and her husband pos sessed one o the most valuable stu dios the one continent in the great great and then the wealthy city of Chicago. And now the trees are tripped of tin ir leaves the new State Department building is beginning to show something of its vast extent and l eauty. The work on the building is not progressing in the railroad style of Mullet, but as fust as is con sistent wicli defection and the amount of the appropriation availed for the pm p ‘se. '1 he south front is entire ly complete, and is imposing in its vast proportion and commandingjelevation. When complete this building will throw the Treasury building near ii emirely in the shade, not by reason of its greater beauty but from the fact that a portion of the latter is sunk some feet b low* the grade of lie street and in Older to enter the really beautiful northern front you are obliged first to descend an area alter passing through which mount another, flight of steps before reach ing the entrance. All’s. Myra Clark Gaines visited the General Land of ti eto consult with Commissioner M illiams n in relation to a claim which she presents for upwards of 19,000 arpents of land granted and confirmed to her father, Daniel Clark in 1801 and in 1 St<4 by the Board of Land commissioners. The grauts are in Missouri, within seventy-three miles of ISt. Louis. The tracts ag gregate about 17,000 acres. Mrs. Gaineswishes to ascertain to whom patents fur these lands haye been is- sued. Francis Murphey, the great ti mperance Reformer opened the campaign, at Lincoln Hall on the Sabbath and three thousand persons idled tiie street who could not gain jidnii tance. The greatest entlnisK asm prevailed lion. R. A. Hatcher M. C. Mo. presided. A choir ot 140 singers made the great Hall ring, with Gospel Temperance songs, A great work in the interest of Tem perance is now sweeping over this city.

Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson, hap presented and Congress has acceptes Carpenters painting of ex-President Lincoln and his cabinet. Tiie cabinet has decided that the coinage of the trade dollar shall be resumed at the Philadelphia mint. Davis, of North Carolina, an e.\- Cnptain of the Confederate army, introduced a bill in the House to re peal Section 4.71 G of the Revised Statutes, which is as follows : “No money, oil account of pension, shall he paid to any person,or the widower children of heirs of any deceased person who in any manner voluntar ily engaged in aide! or abetted the late rebellion against the author ity of the United States. r Southern men are in earnest in the desire to have this section repealed, for the purpose of putting an end forever to the senseless clamor of the Kti'M cans about the purpose of the Dem ocrats. A rumor in Washington to tlieef leet the Secretary Sherman and Sen ator Matthews have been indicted at New Orleans, in connection with the proceedings of the Louisiana Return-, ing Boaid, is creating some excite ment. The statement is made that Sena tor Conk ling is possessed of dispatch es which passed between Washington and Columbus during the Electoral proceedings and that some of them —partictilary those sent in the last stages of tie count—indicate that Hayes knew the bargain which had been made with the Southern Demo crats, and approved of it. The Senate ratified the treaty with the Samoan Islands. It provides for the cession to the United States of a naval and coaling station on the isl ands over which entire jurisdiction is ceded, and admits United States ves sels an i goods free of duty except a slight tonnage tax. It also establish es a kind of a protectorate over the islands by our Government. Ale tor received by one of the Republican Representatives from Louisiana from one of the President tial Electors, and dated New Or leans, January 27th, speaking of t he prospective movement there, says : “It is proposed to convict.the Re turning Board ; next, to indict Elec tors with Kellogg— the Electors as accessories after the fact and Kellogg as an accessory before and after.” the letter adds : “If the President knows what is healthy for him he had host bo stirring around to save old Mad Wells, for he swears he won t stand much more nonsense. The old man is getting his mad up.” Air. Goode, chairman of the House Committee on Education and Labor has been instructed to present a res olulion calling on the President to confer with foreign powers iu ref erence :o so revising our commercial relation-? with China as to prevent the unlimited importation of Chi nese. The State Department at Wash ington has received official informa tion that the Turkish blockade lias been extended to the port of Durazzo, on the Adriatic The bill appropriating two hun dred thousand dollars for the erec tion of posts for the protection of the Itio Grande frontier, passed the House. In the House flic following bills were introduced and referred” By Air. Davis, of North Carolina, reducing the tax on brandy made from peaches or apples. By Air Shelley, of Alabama, fora commis sion to inquire the best means of destroying the cotton army worm. AH’- Hooper, of .Mississippi, moved to suspend the rules and pass a bill authorizing a special term of the circuit and district court for the southern district of Mississippi, for the purpose of tning eases atisiug from the seizure of timber alleged to ha\e beeu obtained by depredations on the public lands. It was defeated by a \ ole of yeas 145, to nays 97. not two-thirds in the affirmative. A motion to suspend the rules and to instruct the committee on wavs and means !o report a graduated income tax, was defeated by a vote of IGG to 80, not two-thiids in the affirmative. In the Senate Mr. Beck spoke* in support of his amendment and Air. Bayard in opposition to the silver bill. , 'I iie Gaulois states that it has au thenic information from Berlin < film re-establishment- of the triple alliance Russia, at the request of Germany, having modified the conditions objec ted to by Austria. A Canadian missionary at Formasa has been attacked by mol s at Tatnp siu and threatened with death if lie remaine !on the island. He refu ,and to wiiho taw, aitiiongh the Chinese officials declared that they were pow erless to protect him. The Merchants’ National Bank of Fort Scot, and the Topeka Bank and Savings Institution hivecoliaps ed under the financial pressure. The schooner Ella Haynes, with a cargo of salt from Pr jv.dence, went ashore .it Plum Island, Long Island Sound, and before assistance could reach her sank, and all on hoard per ished. General Joseph E. Johnston has consented to run for Congress from the district represented by lion. Gilbert C. Walker, ami which em braces the city of Richmond. 1 bo conflict between Governor Pope Ilennessy and toe Hong Kong com munity still continues the former in sisting upon absolute reforms in the tieatment of the Chinese inhabitants which has liiiheito been pronounced scandalous. Russia s answer lo Austria's note has he.n received at Vienna audit recognizes the fact that the present or future situation betwe.n Russia and Turkey aie subject to modifica tion, and are noi definitive until sanctioned by the powers. F armers should congratulate them selves that they are not the only men in the country, who are suffering with burdensome indebtedness Not a day passes, but the telegraphic dis patches biirg us intelligence of mer cantile firms going into bankrupt cy While visiting a city in our State some days since we learned of com promises at a very low per cent on the dollar being made secretly, dims men break, and yet the public at large know nothing of their fail ure, They even compromise their indebtedness secretly and continue without law or juiies, aud even the the pubiic pulse is not agitated by their go down. Now at the begin ning of the year, keep out of debt and you will not be sold out. If you do nut make anything, you will not have any debts to pay. The loss of the steamship Metrop olis, was a hat rowing and terrible af fair. One hundred and sixty out of the two hundred and sixty passen gers, laborers and employs of the contractors of the Brazil Railroad were drowned and their dead bodies are lying upon the beach for a dis tance of two miles from the scene of the stid disaster, it is stated by a survivor that the cause of the disaster was the unseaworthiness of 'the ves sel. This ill-fated steamer was, pre vious to the building of Jim Fisk’s palace, steamer, the favorite on the line between New York and Provi dence, was one of the largest and fin est steamers afloat in those days. Like all steamboats of her class, she carried her boilers on her guards, which probably, with her age, con tributed to produce this feaful disas ter. She was built in 1854, and was 2,219 tons r> gkter. NEW ADVERTISEMENTS. GRANITE HALL, FRIDAY AIG1IT!
