Means, against the firm of McMichael & Means. J. C. McMichael. Justice’s Mill. On Monday morning last, Justice Fryer’s court was in session and tried three important cases. The time con sumed was the trial of these impor., tant eases, was only five or six hours. Tbe sum total of judgements in all three cases only amounted to seven dollars. The cost in the three cases foot ed up ten dollars and the lawyers claim that their services in the cases were worth at the lowest calculation fifty dollars, The Griffin Nevvs has the following: As Mr. Butler Hudson, Clerk of our Superior Court, was returning to his residence night before last, between tbe hours of eight and nine, his liie was attempted;by’ some villain, who unfor tunately, made his escape. Iu an interview with Mr. Hudson, we learn, that just as he was nearing his home in West Griffin, a negro ap proached him suddenly’, and, placeing a pistol to his side, fired it. The haste of the would he assassin and the dark ness of the night saved Mr. Hudson’s life, as the ball only passed through his overcoat, the only damage being a burnt hole. After firing, the negro made off so rapidly that lie evaded a hurried shot fiom Mr. Hudson, leaving no clue to his identity. Society Anniversary. On Friday evening next the Barnes ville Literary Association celebrates its tenth anniversary at Literary Hall. The public are cordially invited to he present. The exercises for the evening will he interesting aud entertaining. There will he the regular debate. The ques tion selected for the occasion is, Resolved “That the Bland Silver Bill become a law.” The disputants are S. K. Cook and Jno. W. White for the affirmative and It. J. Powell and Dr. G. M. McDowell for the negative. The anniversary address will be de livered by Mr. H. C’ Hanson. Col. W* It. Taylor was appointed alternate to Mr Hanson. The subject selected for debate is one of the most important that could have been selected, and the disputants are among the ablest in the society’. We feel safe therefore in assuring the public that they will be entertained, if they attend. The,Society is one of the beneficial institutions of Barnesville, and should he encouraged. We will therefore expect a large attendance. As it is probable there may be some to attend, who never read the full text of the hill we give it as follows; An act to authorize the free coinage of the silver dollar, and to restore its legal tender character. Be it enacted by the senate and nouse of representatives of the United ted States of America in congress as sembled, That there shall be coined at the several mints of the United otates, silver dollars of the weight of four hundred and twelve and a half grains troy of standard silver as pro vided in the act of January eighteen hundred and thirty-seven, on which shall be the devices and su perscriptions provided by said act : which eoius, together with all silver dollars heretofore coined by the Uni ted States of like weight and nominal value, for all debts aud dues, public and private, except where otherwise provided by contract; aud the owner of silver bullion may deposit the same at any United States coinage mint or assay office, to be coined into such dob bins for his benefit, upon the same con dition and terms as gold bullion is de posited for coinage under existing | laws, See. 2. All acts and parts of acts inconsistent with the provisions of this act are hereby appealed. The bill has already passed the House by a large vote, 183 to 34 ami has recently been reported to the Sen ate by the finance committee with an amendment known as the “Al lison Amendment” which is worded as follows. After the word “con tracts in the bill read : And the secretary of the treasury is authorized and directed out of any money in the treasury 7 not otherwise appropriated, to purchase, from time to time silver bullion, at the market price thereof, not less than two mil lion dollars per month, aud not more than four million jollars per month, aud cause the same to be coined into such dollars; aud any seigniorage aris ing from this coinage shall be accoun ted for aud then paid into the treasu ry provided under existing laws rela tive to the subsidiary coiuage;provided that the amount of money at any one time invested in such silver bullion, exclusive of suen resulting coin, shall not exceed five million dol lars. We would advise our patrons to use I)r. Barter's Elixir of Wild Cherry. It is a delicious aromatic cordial. It will pre vent disease in the low bottom lands aud marshy regions especially in the South. To our knowledge it will cure Dyspepsia, Sour Stomach, Headache aud general de bility. It will neutralize the malaria aud impurities in the blood, cleansing the liv er and renovating the stomach.

See their card in our advertising cola ns. I'hc TEiomastou Fair. W liiie in Thomaston last week we had the pleasure of attending the Fair held in the Academy on the Ist. and 2nd. insts. for the benefit of the Thom aston High School. The special ob ject we learn, being toequip the rooms witli anew outfit of furniture, aud to provide for other needed improve ments. We were pleased to note the liberality of those who contributed to the enterprise, and made of it a hand some success. A number of mer chants iu distant cities responded most liberally to the solictation for contributions, and their handsome gifts added greatly’ to the appearance of the array presented to the eyes of visitors. We venture to assert that never before have the farmers iu the surrounding country, aided more ma terially in the success of any enter prise, many of their contributions be ing valuable productions from their own lands. The liberality in giving was equaled only by the freedom with which they expended their money for the different wares exhibited for sale. Every one seemed to have some mon ey ami we drew from the fact a happy augury for the future. Hard times seemed to he giving away before the advance of a more prosperous day for the farmer, and therefore for all. The skillful hands of the ladies of Thomaston aud vicinity,with additions of numerous gifts from ladies of other places, supplied the fancy articles. A round the Flower Stand was constantly found a throng of smiling beaux, who appeared to buy happiness as they’ purchased their button-hole boquets from the fair dealers iu this dainty merchandise. Perhaps the most ap preciable, and really’ soul-cheering spots were found where the comforts of the inner man were supplied, and these departments were presided over by true geniuses of the houselield or der. The richest custards and most delightful sillabub and cake yvere dealt out from one stand, by those who were equal to the constant demand. Then came the Oyster Saloon from which the savory odor was continually’ arising anil making full men hungry’, and drawing them as a “thread of beauty” could not. Each department was under the charge of a committee of ladies, aud managed with the ability ol’experts. Near the door one was greeted with the cry of “Confectioneries !” and right before him was the stand beau tifuliy arranged and supplied with ev erything in this liue one could de sire. Here a pause was made and ex change of a few cents for sweet tilings from the fair hands of the gay braders. Next came the Post-office which was iu able hands, and where every one was sure to find a letter, full of inter est, from the policy document of the hungry office-seeker to the popular Senator, down to the tender billet doux addressed to some blushing belle. The chief attraction of the occasion to the juvenile portion of the crowd seemed to be the Fish Pond, anil each little fellow was delighted with the re -ult of his nickle baiting. The Art Gallery was an exhaustless source of amusement, and it was a noticeable fact that old men, who had never before been known to feel an interest in Art, were known to vis it this department more frequently ilian any other, and with more enjoy ment - The auction proceeded briskly, and the result of this and other sales amounted to a handsome sum. There was considerable-electioneering and vo tingou hand, and any number of can didates. A handsome picture present ed by a lady of Thomaston was raffled the Fair was a happy success and the total amount of the money realized was about §BOO.

Did you observe auy change in my treatment of Harry? Admit that I did treat him with reserve, are you my guardian that you should have an eye to all of my actions,” replied Eva rath er petutantly. “No sister, I am not your guardian, nor do I desire to keep an undue watch upon your actions, or give unjust re proof, but I think it my duty as a sister to admonish you when I discover that you are in error. Have you forgotten how devotedly Ilarry Arlington has loyed you, and that you are at this time his betrothed wife ?” “Indeed you must think I am very forgetful. Most assuredly I have very good reasons for believing that Harry loves me; and he has thought up to this time, that within six months I would ue his bride, but the engage ment has become irksome and I have broken it off I will never be the wife of a poor man, even if he be intelligent and educated,” replied Eva with a sneer. “What! have you really broken oft' your engagement with Harry? exclaim ed Yaluda in astonishment. Have you no compunction of conscience in break ing your promises? lam utterly sur prised that a girl of your sense wouid act iu that manner. You seem to find no fault iu Harry, only that he is poor, which he does not deny, he makes no pretensions whatever to riches, he is a hard student, and an upright gentle man. I much fear you will some day rue your bargain, if Arthur Fleetwood is now your choice. I should prefer Ilarry Arlington with his poverty to Arthur Fleetwood with his hundreds of thousands. And, Eva, I am afraid it you make wealth your criterion you will fall far short of the mark, for often un der a rough exterior we find all those ennobling qualities that constitute the true man.” “What you, proferr or what you would do can have no effect upon me. I for one, prefer wealth with a medioc racy of intellect, to poverty with the mental faculties of an Isaac Newtou or of a Walter Scott. Arthur Fleetwood and I are to be married just six months from to-day.’’ Eva, if you seem so determined in your course, it is useless to multiply words; but take care that these beauti ful lines: “Of all the words of tongue or pen, The saddest are these, “It might have been,” do not come to you with full import in the distant future when in anguish of heart you sincerely lepent this rash step.” The two young ladies between whom the above conversation were sisters. Valuta and Eva Wharton. The daughters of Richard Wharton a lead ing merchant of one of our Southern cities. They were both considered beautiful in every sense of that word! and while some admire the thougliful countenance and gentle expression beaming from the large, lustrous blue eyes of Valuda, others admired the dark haired hazed-ey 7 ed Eva, even if she did not possess that decisivness—if it may be so termed—in expression of force that characterized her more sedate sister. In exquisite mold and loveliness of form feiv equaled and none surpassed them. Harry Arlington was a young man possesed of fine intellectual faculties and was reared in one of our country dis tricts , He struggled against poverty in many shapes and forms having been left an orphan at a very tender age. Harry was taken in charge by a well to-do farmer and from a drudgery boy he steadily rose step by step until at the age of seventeen he was placed in charge of a well improved and lucrative farm, the results of assiduous applica tion and observation To his Other ac quirements a well stored mind was add ed. The farm was a compass too con tracted for his fast developing genius. Ambition was his lodestar, the dizzy heights of Fame towered above him, He longed to reach, and place upon his brow the well merited lauiel wreath. For the accomplishment of this great object, the legal profession offered the most iuvitting field. Here aired to the city iu which lived Richard Wharton, and at once entered upon the , study of law. In a short time, the student became the barrister; slowiy hut surely he was wending his way up ward and at no distant day bid fair to be a leader iu his profession. Ilarry Arlington had met the beautiful Eva W barton while visiting friends in the country, had wood aud won her heart in hand, and for many months had been her acknowledged siutor. Arthur Eleetword was a dashing gay young man, the son of a millionaire, and could be rightfully considered as belonging to that class of young meu. generally termed pleasure seekers, that throng our cities, lie prided more up on a liue turn-out or costly dress than upon any useful acquirements. His name was almost a synonym for flattery, and many were the victims of his heart less flirtalins. He had long euvied Harry Arlington his place iu the affect ions of the queenly Eva Wharton, and had resolved either by fair or dishon est means to fail him. liow he suc ceeded the following short note will show: Mr. Arlington,— Dear Sir : “For sometime past I have been pondering over the engagement existing between us; and after much worrying I have de cided that I cannot be the wife of a man in your condition pecuniarily, I have been reared—as it were—iu the lap of luxury and cannot consent to enter upon the life consequent upon my marrying you. I trust the decision may meet your approval. Enclosed please find engagement ring* With my bet swishes for your success, lam Your friend, Eva Wharton. Harry Arlington could hardly believe his own eyes; he read and re-read, he could not doubt the genuineness of the signature, it was evidently the chiro graphy of Eva. He remained in utte r bewilderment for some time. At length he muttered to himself. “To think that Eva AVliarton the one being in whom I have placed unbounded confi dence; that she, whom, for these long years I have loved should object to my condition pecuniarily aud play me false. Farewell, fair false woman, 1 am henceforth wedded to my books,’’ and he turned off to his usual business. Though he held his troubles concealed in his own breast, one could perceive that a saddened look had settled over his noble features, and months elapsed bofore he seemed his former self again. The time for the marriage of Arthur Fleetwood aud Eva AVharton rolled around, the nuptials were celebrated with all the pomp and splendor that wealth could command. Arthur Fleet wood and his beautiful bride embarked on a maguificent steam ship aud over the briny deep they sped to spend a bridal tour in Europe. They spent some time in visiting various places of historical interest and ' sight-seeing in England; thence to the Centinent, and through Germany and France to Italias sunny clime; thence homeward. The newly wedded couple took possession of a beautiful mansion, and provided with all that heart should wish fairly set sail upon the journey of life. Years have flown, old Times chariot has sped at a swift rate, stamping change upon the world at each revolu tion of the glowing wheels. Harry Ar lington the once poor farmers boy, the ouce young aspirring barister, becomes Hon. Ilarry Arlington, Senator iu the National Legislature, to which place he arose by gradual ascent. The pearls of his eloquence vibrate through those classic halls in vindication of the right; his stupendous intellect has won for him the leadership of his section, and he stands the peer of that venerable body. Several years again, whirl by in quick succession; the raven locks of Senator Arlington have become slightly sprink led with the frosts of thirty-eight win ters. Business has called him to a dis tant city. In deep thoughts he rambles through the narrow streets lined with the lowly cottages of the working class; he suddenly stops. There floats upon the balmy air in a beautiful yet sad strain the following: “Hearts are breaking’, souls are sinking Neath the heavy burden they bear. Yet live Christians never thinking What our many sorrows are. While we work, work away, By night and by day, While we work, work away, With scarce time to pray.” All the happy thoughts of other years crowed in troops through his brain, lie had heard that voice before, though somewhat jarring and sad it was the same. Some uncontrollable impulse drove him on, he entered the small gate and advanciug to the door, he gave a gent'e rap, the singer arose and met him. With much emotion he exclaimed “Eva, Eva, we meet again.’, O, Harry, Harry, is it possible— Hush, hush, he replied in much agi tation, and with an arm thrown around her slender waist, he pressed her to his bosom aud as of old imprinted a kiss up on her rosy lips. K “Forgive me Harry I” “You are forgiven dearest.’’ 1 hus had the noble Senator Arling ton found the love of his early years, lie had remained) unmarried till this time, no other of the fair sex had been able to capture his heart since Eva had played him false. Eva Fleetwood formerly Wharton— though the wreck of her former self was still possessed iu part of her youthful beauty. The story of her marrie I life is soon told. Arthur Fleetwood had squon dered in a few years his immense es tates, ami after a few brief years of hap piness, Eva found herself the wife of a drunken, and brutal husband, from whom death soon happily relieved her. Then it was toil, toil away for daily bread. Too proud to call upon the friends of her prosperity she was wear ing her life away with ceasless toiling. Ere another week rolled around she was the wife of him whom she deserted to marry tor wealth fifteen years be fore. Their cup of bliss being now full to overflowing they 7 settle down to enjoy the reoiaiudei' of their liyes iu peaes and prosperity. A VALUABLE WORK. The Pictorial History of the United States, from the Discovery ofthe A merican Continent to the preseut time; with a complete History of the Cen tennial Exhibition. By Jas. D. McCabe, Author of “ A Manual of General History,” 41 The Great Re public,” Etc. It is a well-known fact that the great mass of our people are compelled to rely, for their knowledge of the history of their couutry, unon the out line woaks intended for the use of schools, which by their very nature are brief; designed for the comprehen sion of children, and in every way un suited to the adult mind. There has long been felt a genuine want of a History of the United State, covering the whole period from the discovery ofthe Continent to the present day, and presenting in a succinct and com prehensive form the history of our country through its varoious periods, from a higher and more thoughtful standpoint thau would be proper in a school history. This demand we are happy to say is satisfactorily met in” The Pictorial History of the United States,” a work which is evidently de stined to take rank as the Standard History of our country. The author, James D. McCabe, is an able and well known|llistorict?l writer. We most heartily commend this work to our readers. It is no dry mass of details no bombastic effort to iutlame the national pride hut a clear, vivid, and brilliant narrative of the events of our history from the discovery of the American Continent to the presenst day. It gives a most interesting ac count of the Indians of North America from the time of the coming of the; white men. The voyages of Columbus' the explorations of the different na tions of Europe and the Spaniards in seatch of gold and immotal youth, are told with graphic power. The story ofthe Revolution is related with all the intrrest of a romance; then follows a clear and succinct account of forma tion of the Federal Constitution the Second War with England the Mexi can War, and the events af our history up to the commencement of the Civil War. The History of the Great Civil War is related with intense vigor and with strict fidelity to truth. The au thor writes with calmness and impar tiality, and pleads the causeof no sec tion or party. The book contains a complete account of the Centennial Exhibition. It is comprised inone large and hand some volume, of over 1100 pages, and contains more than 500 fine engrav ings on steel and wood- The book is issued by the National Publishing Cos., of Philadelphia, Pa.,Chicago, 111., St. Louis, Mo., and Dayton, Ohio, wiiose imprint is a guarantee of the excellence of the workmanship. The price is low considering the character of the work, and each subscriber is presented with a handsome lithograph ic engraving of tire Centennial Rubb ings and Grounds. It is sold by sub scription only, and Mr. J. P. Morgan, who is the authorized agent for this section, is now canvassing for it. We are personally acquainted with Mr. Morgan and can commend him to the patronage of this section. lie will canvass the surroundindg country atan early date, and ask for subscribers to the work.

The reason why only one sample bottle of Morrell’s Heaptine for the Liver will be sold to the same person, for ten cents, by our Druggist, J. W.

All who have not had a sample bottle are entitled to one for ten cts. at J. W. High tower Drug store.

REMAKABLE SUCCESS. The success of the leading literary paper of the West, The Chicago Led ger, is truly remarkable. Ninee iis introduction to the reading public, six years ago, The Ledger has steadily i.d vanced in favor, and is naw acknowl edge second to no paper of the kind in tlic country. Its circulation is nation al, and has been obtained through the efforts of its publishers to produce a paper of high moral character, aud at the same time sell it at a price consist ent with the present hard times. That they have succeeded, and well, too, the thousands of readersof The Ledger scattered from Maine to Texas and from Oregon to Florida will bear testi mony. The Chicago Ledger is a large forty-eight column weekly paper, which contains stories both complete and con tinued, in each number, written by the best authors of the day, and a great va riety of informtion interesting to every one. The subscription price of The Led • ger is only §l, 50 per year, postage paid, and it is equal in every particu lar to other papers of the same character which sell for £3 a year. Three copies of this valuable paper will be sent to any one who sends 10 cents anil their ad dress to The Ledger, Chicago, 111.
