In looking over soma old justice
of the peace dockets filed away in
the Clerks office of this county,
we find the following epistle which
is addressed to the grand jury by
a retiring officer, whom we will
designate as Peter Joues. It is
an interesting document to us, and
we give it to you as it stands on
the docket, word for word:
To the grand jury, March term
Superior Court. Hear ends the
labors of Peter Jones as Justice of
the Peace for the last four years
last past, and though imperfectly
done yet honestly done. I would
not after looking back change one
decision that has been made, but
regret my incompetency, and now
after having tried it four years, am
fully satisfied that the com
pensation allowed justices by law
is not sufficient to pay for time
lost (with nothing for labor done)
and earnestly reccommend your
honorable body, to take notice of
them and their pay in your next
general presentments. Tljerse is a
very useful office, their duties are
indispsnsible and there pay is the
most meager and inadiquite of
auy of all our public servants.

FORTH A FEELIING LET
TER FROM REV. DR.
Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 28th ’96.
Mr. Editor —Dear Sir: Your
taper of Jan. 24th. came in my
nail this morning. The rain is
leating on the windows aitd as I
00k out upon the dreariness of
lbe day, I begin to muse “and
musitig Lhe fi“vLurnß for I
Id we will not tlu!
,1 productioi jt, JuTH
I I seemed to call the roll of 140
ssen,-sons,- brothers, husbands,
lathers and* sweethearts of so
Jaany who saw them leave home;
,'randfathers of so many who have
never sepn them yet. Out of the
-.umber two-thirds did not answer
the call. Some are reported as
hist ami unaccounted for. Several
'.ied at home on furlough. A
number returned as survivors and
nave since died. Some died in
hospitals and some upon the field.
•How many hopes went out when
Uißse. men died! How many wid
owed hearts are made!
I'nfh.e tears come to my eyes as 1
lead the names, many of them so
familiar to me as names of men I
knew and loved in old Madison—
fSloocTkin of the men I did not
know. .How can any true man go
pack on the dead heroes, their
Swiddfre and their children.
t I don’t sse Lee Bird’s name in
Fihe list. He belonged, I suppose
[Lo another company. I paid my
jlSpsi' tax as a citizen to him. I
ypr;;ached his funeral soon aftor l
Bpteßt to the county. Noble fellow
ptid a good Christian citizen,
ft. And John McCurdy’s name is
ytiot there. He too, no doubt, was
fm-another company. Like Lee
WfcJraf he also loat a leg,, and both
jive'nt limping to their graves.
IBrave John McCurdy! If anyone
pays yes, he had his faults, I say
jyes, but he had his virtues. I got
.near to his heart. I have heard
him pray. I have seen many a
time the large tears roll out of his
large eyes, as they are now rolling
out of mine, and if he has not
gone where the rude alarms of war
will never reach him, of whom
then around you can you hope?
And very recently my dear
friend Ed Sanders has gone to
meet the boys on the other side
under the shade of the trees, never
more to endure the summers heat
and winters cold, the fatigues of
the march, the loneliness of the
picket, or the dangers of the bat
tlefield. Noble men, these, whose j
names are mentioned and the |
many more who could be. i
Oh! if I could have felt when
a resident of the county, as I have
felt since I haye been here and
connected with the Fulton County
Association, [and as its Chaplain
for four years, how much nearer
could I have got to some men who
yet live and to some who are gone.
There ia a feeling which one

So that when life’s warfare ends
it may at last ba the “good fight
of faith” and the reward of the

and children of those who have
fought their last battle.

The recitations by the school
