Macon, Ga., Jan. 23.-—Justice Lucius Quintas Cincinnatas Lamar died here at 3:50 o'clock to-night. It is a terrible shock to the commun ity.

Justice Lamar appeared to be gradually gaining in health. lie came from Washington to Macon about a month ago and has been visiting at the residence of W. H.

Dr. Llewellyn, witli whom he retrained to the sitting-room. At that tirrje and during all the afternoon he iras in good spirits, and at dinner at C :50 o’clock this eveuiug he seemed to have a good appetite. Dr. Llewellyn left the house about 8 o’clock and a few minutes later tbe justice was seized with violent pains in the heart and died at the hour mentioned. A SKETCH OF HIS LIFE. Lucius Quintus Cincinnatus Lamar was born in Putnam county, Georgia, Sept. 1, 1825, and after bis father’s death was taken to Oxford, Miss., where he received a part of bb edu cation.

Other News and Gossip Csnfht at the Georgia Statehonsc The school children of Georgia must go to the book-stove ami get them a history. A few days ago the state board of education ruled that hereafter history shall not only be a permissable, or voluntary branch of the common school education, but shall be placed regularly on the list as one of the positively required studies. Accordingly the state school com missioner, Captain S. I). Bradwell | issued last Monday a circular to all the couuty school commissioners of perance, Christian town in Ware | the state telling them officially of the j arc t u 0 rule here, and a county, has just begau to receive the j recent decision of the state board and j away for a rainy season, is not :i advantage in full of tbe general ad- j ordering them to go about the work i tion. There was marketed from he vertising of our pioneer, Rev. J. M. j of selecting the history to be used in i fields this season, fifteen hundred bale BLACKSHEAR. A Bright ConuMsuIntion From Pierce— What She U Capable of. Mr. Editor: I take pleasure in introducing to you the agricultural county of Wiregrass Georgia. Pierce has lor a decade or more !>een making rapid strides in the art of hus bandry, and to-day she stands peerless as a productive and wealth gaining county. Here the silvkn fibre of the long stapled cotton matures in all its beauty, and here corn and other grain ripen under the glowing sun; here the luscious sugar cane easts its blades to the breeze, and all forms of vegetables grow to make glad the heart of the epicurean. Peopled by an honest, industrious and hospitable citizenship she moves forward with stately tread in the march of pro gress. To-day slit* presents a spectacle of wealth and prosperity proportionately unrivalled in the state. Farms unincumbered by mortgages mug sum laid *1»- Stiger, and people are finding out that there is more work with good pay and less trouble, less whiskey and more money than in most places. They are coming from all over to settle here, we had one family and part of another from Kansas, two families from Michigan and four from parts of Georgia, come here to live the last two months. Two families and four parts of families, so you see thirteen families and parts make a general filling up. We have a brand new saw mill added aud four camps of tie men near Highland Bentley, and so with 100 or more hands in our woods, several com missaries op ened and the well known Gleumore House opened witli eight boarders and over-run with traveling men and some with families, we need some man or men with money to build a good hotel, we need a large store to accommodate our farmers the schools of their respective conn- 1 of Sea Island cotton, aggregating ties. The circular is of great interest, not alone to the county school com missioners, but to the teachers of all the schools and the patrons of the schools as well. It reads as follows; HISTORY, A TEXT ROOK. To the County School Commission ers of Georgia: History, by direc tion of the state board of education, has been made a part of the curricn- lum of the common schools. It is, therefore, my duty to give the county boards of education, through you, the following instructions : 1. The prescription of history ia now placed upon the same basis as arithmetic, geography or any of the branches heretofore recognized as the legal branches. j 2. It is limited to elementary his tory of the United States and of the staie of Georgia. 3. It is made mandatory on the hundred thousand jKmmls, with a valua tion of over one hundred thousand dol lars, and in Pierce some of this money sticks to the farmers’ fingers, and all does not go for supplies and guano bills. So most of our farmers seem to have done well this season. The good price of cotton with the beautiful yield of corn lias filled Imtli purse and ham. Iu fact this is a glorious county of ours; a kindly soil productive of all manner of harvests, while fruits grow and ripen al most the year ’round.

He cast his fortunes with the ‘•lost cause” and left the army with the rank of a colonel after having shared in many engagements. He was again a professor in tbe Univer sity of Mississippi and again took a scat in tlic House of Representatives. He was elected to tbe senate March 5, 1877. On March 5, 1885, Presi dent Cleveland appointed Justice Lamar Secretary ot the Interior and afterwards elevated him to a seat on the supreme bench. Justice Lamar was perhaps as prominent a figure as any that has occupied a seat on the bench of that august body, but for mouths back he has been almost too ill to take more than perfunctory in terest in the proceedings.
