Tlic Way to Meet Tight Times.
When little money ia afloat the people
ought to make it do doable duty. Let it
spin from hand to hand with double ve
locity. The old proverb says that «* a
nimble sixpence is better than a alow
shillingbut it is a good deal better
than that. A dollar passing rapidly
from hand to hand in the payment of
debts, may settle twenty dollars of in
debtedness in the oourae of a day,' while
a thousand dollars lacked up win not
pay a cent, nor do anything at all to
ward* loosening “tight rimes."
Now it ia the first and nniver-.il in
stinct to board and lay by whenever the
cry of ”tight rimes" ia rained. People
become timid and very distrustful of the
future, and some perhaps want to use a
hoard to profit on the necessities of their
neighbor*. But it ia a poor and short
sighted buxines*. It ia stupid and selfish
to withhold the payment of just debts,
simply because money is very scarce and
you may need it for some other purpose.
That proceeding aggravates, if, in fact
it does not mate the scarcity. Pay
freely m far as you can and you will find
the current of circnlation will soon bring
it round to you again with vastly in
Very little money is necessary if it be
only kept in active circulation. The
grand point is to keep it moving,- and all
this panic and stringency, from New York
to Macon, is due almost simply and solely
to locking up tho money in big and little
boards, which are each and every one of
them useless to the great purposes of an
active and satisfactory trade.
This passion for boarding is a kako-
dai monos—an evil devil—which gets into
the people and makes them cut their own
throats, in a foolish and misdirected ef
fort to benefit themselves, as a swimming
pig ia said to do. It finds its parallel in
tho traditional conduct of sailors on a
wracked ship, who go about crying “ev
ery man for himself,” and in destroying
vessel and cargo, secure their own certain
destruction by lawless tumult and insub
ordination. Return to composure—pay
up as promptly as you can—scatter your
boards—exercise some manly confidence
and be sure that you will reap your re
ward in tho general restoration of trade
and comparative pecuniary case.
APPEAL FROM MEMPHIS!
We are indebted to Rev. Dr. Kennedy,
editor of the Southern Christian Advo
cate, for the following dispatth from
Memphis, and the introductory commu
nication which precedes it. The dispatch
reveals a most distressing condition of
affairs, and we trust the appeal for aid
will be promptly responded to—not only
by the Methodist connection to which ft
is ai^iressod, bnt by every other Christian
communion and the whole body of the
people at large. We will receive, ac
knowledge and properly apply any dona
tions that may be sent to or left with us
to aid these afflicted people. Dr. Kenne
dy or J. W. Burke A Co. will do the same,
and so, we doubt not, will any ocher bus-*
iaeas house in Macon. But there ought
to be committees to solicit subscriptions,
and we think it would be well to take up
collections for the same object in every
Macon church nest Sunday:

apalling, and the appeal I fcul sure will
secure a generous response from the peo

Anotlicr Parlor Concert.
Mrs. S. Boykin, the gifted organist and
proficient on the piano forte, has consented
to gire another of her inimitable concerts
in behalf of the parsonage of the Presby
terian Church. Thia beautiful edifice
has been completed, and is now ready to
be occupied by the beloved pastor for
whom it was designed. But some unset
tled bills still require to be liquidated,
and the noble ladies of the congregation
are resolved that not one incumbrance
shall bxng over the home of their min
It is to raise the funds required for this
laudable purpose, that Mrs. Boykin, at
the coat of considerable personal sacrifice
of time and trouble, haa consented to
chaperon.and direct another of her churn
ing parlor concerts.
She will be assisted by aome of the best
amateur talent in the State. Those who
sat entranced under the delicious render
ing of “ Watchman, tell os of the night,”
on last Sabbath, at the dose of Dr. Bat
tle’s great discourse' in the f*re»byteri*n
Church, when a pin might have been
heard to fall, will realize the powers of
some of the select few who win occupy
places in her programme. Let it be re
membered. that although charity ia the
object of the concert, and a small chafge
to be devoted to a pious purpose will be
made as the price of admission, yet those
who attend will obtain in enjoyment and
pleasure far more than the worth of their
money. Never, in our experience of simi
lar entertainments in Macon, whether
professional or otherwise, have we wen
more charmed and delighted than with
the parlor concerts of Mrs. Boykin.

of intermeddling questions coolly marches
his children to school without the least

Last Week's Cotton Figures.
The total cotton receipts for the seven
•lays ending Frhlry night, were 52,676
bales against 40,tl2U hales last week, 23-,
673 the previous week and 13,005 boles
three weeks since, making the total re
ceipts sinoe the first of September, 1873,
137,059 bales against 230,155 bales for the
same period of 1872, showing a decrease
since September 1,1873, of 93,096 bales.
The receipts at the interior ports, dur
ing tho 'sumo time, were 15,226 hales,
against 22,017 last your. The shipments
were 6,155 against 19,232, and tbe stocks
footed up 29,763 against 17,951 last year.
The Chronicle’s visible supply table
shows 1,739.662 bales, against 2,032,599
lost year and 1,825,821 the year before—
showing a deficit of 292,937 bales, 4 as
compared with last year’s stock.
The weather during the week was gen
erally favorable to picking, although rain
is noticed in ail tbe Cotton States. At
Galveston it rained four days, and in Now
Orleans showery weather prevailed for
the same length or time. At Vicksburg
there were throe days of severe rain—
the first for a month, and at Memphis
there were four days’ rain. At Mont
gomery there were light rains on three
days—Columbus two days—Macon, no
rain at ulL The temperature averaged
at Memphis 70, Savannah 75, Columbus
75, Macon 77, Montgomery 78, Selma 76,
Mobile 78 and Galveston 79. The Chroni
cle has the following upon—
Becku-ts and the Cnor.—Last year
tho September and October receipts were
very free; this was due to the crop being
early, the weather fine, and further to
the fact that cotton opened so evenly
that sicking which began two or three
weeks earlier than usual, except about
Memphis, was larger to the hand than is
often seen. This year the main condi
tions were reversed—the crop waa late,
and the September weather ia the At
lantic States evidently not as favorable;
so that, other things being equal, the re
ceipts during the first six weeks would
naturally be much tout than for the same
period a year ago. We expected, howev
er. by the middle of October to see a free-
er movement—fully up to and. on ac
count of the better condition of much of
the .Western crop, perhaps in excess of
last year. In this it is not unlikely that
shall be disappointed; the yellow fe
ver in the West and Southwest and the
money pressure throughout all the cot
ton Stator will have a tendency to check
deliveries. We call attention to this be
cause there are many who always meas
ure a crop by the early receipts; such a
standard certainly would not be a safe
guide this year. At the same time we
do not os Tvt fee) able to give our read
ers any very definite idea of the probable
yield. At best it is a difficult problem,
until the ingathering of the crop is near
ly completed; and to our mind the pe
culiarities of the present season surround
the question with additional uncertain

Tlic Mississippi Campaign.
H. V. R. writes the Cincinnati Com
mercial that as Attorney-General Mor
ris, of Mississippi, has decided in response
to a letter of enquiry from the Governor,
that there con be no legal election in that
State until next year, the present cam
paign will be knocked in the head. The
Radicals, he says; are faziom, and are
preparing to tube their throats for the
old howl of “rebel,” and a Southern Rad
ical who can’t howl ** rebel" when any
thing gets between him and an office is
not fit to belong to the party. He seems
to think, however, that the Ames gang
will not regard the decision of the At
torney-Genera], but go on and hold the
election any how, and that Powers, the
Governor, being a weak brother, von’t
how to prevent it. Ames’
running for Governor, is to ho in
succeed himself in the Sen-
Atc in 1875, and to secure the negro vote,
ho luul one Davis, an ignorant Memphis
barber, put on the ticket, us Lieutenant
Governor. How the Radicals are crouch

A Lively “Fossil.”
The Radical papers of Ohio and the
West, generally, have been making merry
over the candidacy for Governor of that
State, by Dclnocratic nomination, of the
Hon. William Allen, whom they accuse of
being nearly one hundred years old, and
therefore “a fossil.” Bnt, judging from
some of the old gentleman’s speeches, if
he is “a fossil” he is a monstrous lively
one. Among other loyl stumpers who
have been having a fling at him an ac
count of his age, is Morton, tho man who
is now paying for some of the sins of his
youth with crippled legs, and a constitu
tion hopelessly diseased, and jrho, like
old Brownlow, is only kept alive by bis
bate of the South and her true people.
How the “fossil” disposed of him may be
read in the following extract from one of
his latest speeches. He said:
And who is Senator Morton ? Would be
wish the people of Ohio to believe that
he is on Ajax who could throw a fifty
pound stone with his hand? No, sir;
instead of being an Ajax, he wants all
the points and vigor in which the strength
of Ajax consisted. [Lduil laughter.]
This very man Morton, when he was
brought before the people, had not the
power of standing ; uu his feet before the
people. Tbe committee had to lift him
up (renewed laughter], and when he got
up they had to sit him in un armchair,
and he had to fumble about to hunt np
an old manuscript that he had concocted
in the deep darkness of some midnight,
and read it, and called its speech. [Great
laughter.] Do I look like a man? [Pro
longed yelling and merriment.] Am I
paralyzed from my hips down? There
are two kinds of causes which wear away
human life. One is tne constant wear

individual, and oppresses* him from his
hips down. [Laughter and applause.]
And yet this tnan comes here and talks
about my want of manly vigor. Wbyvl

Washington, October 5.—It has been
ascertained that a part of the programme
of the spies sent South by the Govern
ment, in the guise of claim agents, to
gather evidence against the holders of
cotton and other claims, is to procure
affidavits from negroes once owned by, or
who worked for claim-holders. The peo
ple of Georgia are deeply interested in
cotton claims -Savannah alone being en
titled to nearly two millions of dollars on
judgments rendered by the Court of
Claims in the months of April and May
last, the payment of which is now sus
pended to await reports from the afore
said spies. A number of claimants have
already placed their claims in the hands
of these fellows, and the facts thus ob
tained are manipulated to postpone and
defeat them. ■ Many claimants are here
from-tle Booth awaiting the action of the
Government. One gentleman from Ma
con brought all his witnesses here at con
siderable cost, only to find that he could
do nothing until tbe Government agents
in the South make their reports.

The News has the following particu
lars of an attempt to capture Wilson, the
man who murdered Joseph A. Williams
in Effingham county last week;
Our readers have already been apprised
of the particulars concerning the recent
difficulty'in Effinghhni county, in which
Joseph A. Williams was killed by Henry
C. Wilson, and the excitement occasioned
thereby. After the killing, Wilson dis
appeared, but we learned from private
sources yesterday that the civil authori-
ities at Egypt, station No. 4, on the Cen
tral railroad, were notified on Fri<lay tliat
he was still in Effingham and it was
thought that he could be captured at his
mother’s residence. A party was imme
diately organised amf started for the
place. On arriving at the residence,
about daybreak on Saturday, the party
discovered Wilson mounted, in tho act of
leaving. He was ordered to halt, but in
stead of doing so, put whip and spurs to
his horse, when tue posse fired upon liiw
He jumped from the animal and suc
ceeded in escaping, and it is not known
whether he wqs wounded or not. Tho
horse was seeilred and taken Kick to the
station. Henry 0. Wilson is described
as about twenty years of age, about six
feet high, of very light complexion, yel
low eyes, no beard, of slender build, und
of rather prominent features. His right
arm is amputated below the elbow.
The News says the money pressure on
Saturday was very great, “and those who
bad weekly pay-rolls to provide for real
ized considerable 'difficulty in raising the
requisite funds. In tile Merchants’ Na
tional Bank fully nineteen-twentieths of
the notes maturing were extended, and
it is presumable tho same was the case
in the other banks. The Merchants is
still-paying out promptly currency for all
deposits, and judging from the appear
ance of the officers the institution is un
disturbed by any “panicky” feeling. The
recommendation of the Chamber of Com
merce, that the banks issue sight drafts
on New York for small amounts, which
might be sent into the interior and used
as currency, appears to have had but lit
tle effect. Home of the banks ore prepared
to issue them, bnt there has been little
demand for them, and the whole scheme
has apparently fallen far short of the ex
ions of the originators. In the
_ go of one of the bank officers,
“The thing won’t work.” Small amounts
of currency are being received by some
of tho banks from New York, but the
supply from this source is very meagre.”

Joseph E. Bbown, Pres’t.

letter, some extracts from which wo find
in the Rome Commercial. He finds fault
with the preachers who go to the springs
or to the North, or elsewhere for rest in
the summer, declaring that “in the
gross of these green pastures, where the
flesh seeks rest, there is a snake; and his
name is Satan.," pronounces against the
custom of “ promiscuous seating of onr
congregations,” and delivers the follow,
iug bcoodsida against organs and choirs
in Methodist churches:
I am more and more satisfied that the
introduction of organs and choirs, like
‘Alexander the coppersmith, has done us
much evil.' In many cases they have
been the occasion of division, discord,
varience, hate, heart burning in the
idles. This is all wrong, I. grant,
it is os fair and just to lay the blame
who gave the’ ‘offense’’ms upon'
those who were ‘offended.*
“I find churches who have paid thou
sands for an organ and only give hun
dreds for Another—straining,
the people say, to support a preacher, yet
