■ eitt& €tltgcnpji mitt ftltssmflft FRRDAY AUGUST 27, I860. —Pope Leo XIII Is quite unwell this summer, partly because of the unusual beat of the summer at Rome, and partly because of bis labors on the Belgian en cyclical. —An English curaio happened recently to preach on the wages of sin and make some uncomplimentary references to the prodigal son. A young scapegrace in the congregation fancied that the sermon was aimed at himself. He horse whipped the curate the next day. —Ex-Judge Richard Bustecd, formerly of Alabama, but now a resident of New York city, ha3 declared for Hancock. He was an appointee of President Lincoln, He announces his willingness to stump the State in General Hancock’s interest. —The New York Tribune asks whether the Democrats of the South are support ing Hancock because he fought them in 1861. No, sir; they support hint because he stopped fighting them in 1865. The Garfields, Blaines and Conklings of the North will yet find out that it would have been more politic, as well as more just and magnanimous, if they had done like wise. —The New York Tribune thinks that the wheat crop of the present year may be safely set down at no less than from ISO-, 000,000 to 400,000,000 bushels, or from 50-, 000,000 to 40,000,000 bushels in excess of the great crop in 1879. If this estimate should prove correct there will remain a surplus for export in excess of the re serve held back for seed and consumption Owen county, Indiana, is entitled to the palm in possessing one of the oldest Democratic “stand-bys,” in the person of Mr.’Andrew Aniey. He voted for James Madison for President, and for every Democratic candidate for the same office ever since. He expects to vote for Gen. Hancock. He is ninety-two years old, and walked over a mile to join a Hancock dub, and wrote his name in a round, leg ible hand, without glasses. —Two large gold dishes have been temporarily lent to the Science and Art Museum, Dublin. The larger one, meas uring two feet nine inches in diameter, is said to be the wedding present of the Dauphin of France to Mary Queen of Scott. The smaller is two feet in diam eter, and contains in the centre a repre sentation oftlie Adoration of the Magi in high relief. ot about 200,000,000 bushels. The South Carolina Census.—A special to the Courier-Journal says: Gen. Walker, superintendent of the cen sus, says there is no truth in the state ment a new enumeration will be taken in South Carolina. Thus far not a solita ry fact has been brought to the attention of the census office to indicate that the census in South Carolina was improperly taken. Two of the three supervisors ap pointed for that State are Republicans, and it is in their districts where the largest increases in population are reported. Only a “Side Speculation.”—Mr. Sam Ward, the noted lobbyist and confi dential friend of Mr. James R. Keene, the great speculator, says the losses of the latter in his attempted wheat corner were about $1,200,000. This was only a “side speculation,” however, according to Mr. Ward, and did not hurt Mr. Keene much, as his profits last year, principally on rail road stocks, are stated by the same au thority to have amounted to nearly nine millions of dollars. That’s the kind of “useful citizens” we raise in this country nowadays. Gen. Butler for Hancock.—The Boston Herald says: At the meeting of the Democratic ward and city ccmmitr tee Thursday evening it was officially an nounced that General Butlef would, on the 2$th of this month, address a mass meeting in Faneuil hall, and declare his intention to support General Hancock for President. This is the first statement of liis views that has been made, although it was understood that lie would finally stand on the national Democratic plat form. It is not known whether he will be a candidate for governor, but if he does he will have the full support of all wings of the party. Intend to be on Hand.—The Athens Stale (colored Republican) says : “There will be a State convention held in Atlanta on September 7th. It is important that there be colored men in that convention. If white Republicans can’t stomach their presence, it is best that they have a meet ing of their own; for it is certain we will have colored men in it.” The white “rads” have evidently lost their hold upon their colored brethren of the party, because they have ridden them down like the “old man of the mountain.” The same paper is not exactly prepared to say whether or not a Republican candidate for governor will be started, but calls upon his colored associates to oppose Norwood on account of alleged hostile utterances against their race. A Republican ClSb Votes to Pabade fob Hancock.—A Washington special to the World says the sixteenth district Republican club of this city held a meeting Thursday evening, at their rooms, to determine whether or not to join the procession to the Republican rati fication meeting at City Hall two hours later. About one hundred and fifty mem bers were present, half of then were col ored. A vote being taken, the result was a tie, the colored members voting in a body to join the procession and participate in the meeting. The chairman then cast a negative vote, which decided the matter. A resolution that the association turn out in fall at the Hancock ratification meet ing next Thursday evening was carried witbont a dissenting voice and amid great enthnsiasm. The Telegraph and Messenger was requested to publish the proceedings of a mass meeting held in Monroe county, but the proceedings never reached us un til yesterday. We would have gladly complied with their wishes if the proceed ings had been furnished in time. We re ceived a postal card some days ago from the secretary, referring us to the Barnes- viMe Gazette. Tbs Gazette failed to reach us. The people of Dougherty county by quite a handsome majority, voted on Ikst Saturday to purchase Tiftis bridge across the Flint river at Albany. It is a wise decision. The existence of a toll bridge at that point baa not only been against Albany’s interest, but an intolerable an noyance to every passer-by. The National Campaign. Tlio lamentable disagreements among Democrats in Southern States, have thrown an unmistakable damper on tbe national campaign for Hancock. True, it is probable that all these Southern States will be won for him after all, and so the evil be more moral than actual. But ft is a serious let-down to Democratic enthusiasm to know that a common devo tion to the great cause of civil liberty and good government, is not sufficiently strong to bury all local controversies, and brin: together, in lock step, and with locked shields, the whole Democratic phalanx of America, in one grand, unanimous embracing stand for the re-establishment of the ancient traditions of free and hon est government. It is a most unwelcome and portentous sight to those Democrats of the North and West, to see their allies of the South battling with each other, in stead of the common enemy. But since it must be so, is it not pos sible that we can pnetermit some of tbe barbarities of warfare between sworn political enemies. Can we not, in some sort, agree to disagree— resolve that this appeal from conventional disagreements to the people shall go no further; shall not interrupt the general harmonies of the party; shall cease with the popular de cision; shall leave no traces behind it, but shall find the great Democratic party of Georgia reconsolidated on that decision, whatever it may be. To effect this most desirable consumma tion we would make an earnest appeal to all speakeis and writers to withhold tongue and pen from personal severity, abuse and crimination—to be chivalrous and knightly in tbeir warfare, and say and do nothing to make chronic animosities. Conclusive and Unanswerable. The reply of Governor Colquitt to the severe strictures upon his administration, made by Mr. Norwood in his Atlanta and Savannah speeches, ought to be satisfac tory to tbe most implacable opponent of bis excellency. It is published in extenso in this issue, and will make a most vain- able campaign document. So completely are tbe charges against the governor refuted, that at tbe end of tbe answer to each specification the letters Q. E. D. might be appropriately super- added. We are particularly pleased with the decorum and courtesy manifested to wards his opponent, under great aggrava tion, and trust so worthy an example will be heeded in all the forthcoming dis cussions of the canvass. Andrew Female College. We invite attention to the advertise ment of this excellent institution, pub lished elsewhere to-day. Rev. A. L. Hamilton, D. D., the accomplished presi dent, is one of the best trainers of the fe male mind to be found in tbe whole country. While a very martinet in disci pline, he ye tpossesses the happy faculty, in a remarkable degree, of winning tbe affe> tion and respect of tbe" young ladies under his charge. The energy and industry, too, of the doctor are proverbial, and the people of Southwest Georgia are laigely iudebted to him for making Andrew College what it really is, one of the best seminaries of learning in the State. We are glad to know the stately college building has been thoroughly repaired aud renovated, and tbe grounds tastily laid off and adorned with flowers and shrubs. The attendance of pupils is larger than for many years past. For particulars, address tbe presi dent at Cutkbert, Georgia, and send for catalogue. Sharp Shooting.—Dr. John Ruth and bis wife have made their advent in New York from the West, as sharpshooters. They distance all riflemen and pistolers— even Bogardus and Carver. One perform ance shows great conjugal harmony as well as good marksmanship. Dr. Ruth holds an ordinary visiting card in bis month and permits his wife to shoot several rifle balls through it. Indiana.—The World quotes a state ment made in the executive committee room that the Indiana Democrats had sent word that they would not draw on the committee, but would raise ail necessary- campaign funds at home. Hendricks will make thirty speeches iulndiana before the election. The fight in the Hoosicr State is severe. - . — -.-a»c— A Northern exchange remarks that the battle of Gettysburg was fought, on the rebel side, mainly by Longstreet’s troops. This eminent Confederate is now drawing the comfortable salary of $7,500 Mr. Hayes’ minister to Turkey. Meanwhile the Union soldier , who won the battle of Gettysburg, and saved Penn sylvania and the North from invasion, is being denounced by the Republican press as a traitor and rebel sympathizer. Some how it seems as if things had been mixed. Dangers of the Telephone.—The Louisville Courier-Journal of Sunday, says during the lightning discharges, yesterday afternoon, the telephone wires in the northern and northwestern portions of the city became dangerously charged with the electric fluid, and a large number of telephones were destroyed. The tele phone inspector reported fifty-two lines open and seventy-five microphones burned. The open lines were broken partly by tbe wind aud storm, and partly by being burned by tbe lightning. The telephone system in this city, as in every other, is protected as much as possible from the dangers of the lightning, but perfect se curity cannot be obtained, and although exceptionally fortunate heretofore the loss yesterday was very large. —The Ameer Abdurrahman Is described as by far the strongest and moat intelli gent African of them all. He is a great worker, often not retiring to rest until 3 o’clock in tbe morning. He rises early for prayers, and then sleeps until 9 or 10 o’clock, when lie commences business. He only takes one meal a day, 8t about 4 o’clock p. m., but consumes large quanti ties of tea. His conversation is never friv olous, and he has much knowledge of the world and strength of character. He thoroughly understands the art of man aging tbe people with whom he is brought in contact, having apparently acted strict ly up to tbe Pope’s motto: “The proper study of mankind is inau.” He is frank and bold in his manner and speaks freely to his visitors, drafts all his own letters, has no'advisers, and only three or four confidants.

Coflee, common 14i; fair idt: seem to thiuk that the majority and the minority in the late gubernatorial, oon- vention are equally to blame for this dis cord, while I aud others think the blame rests entirely with the majority. When the convention met, that “over whelming majority,” about which there lias been so much boasting, of their own accord and on tbeir own motion, aim with the full co-operation of the minority, aud by'the publicly ekprtssted approba tion of Governor Colquitt through Gener al Young, a member of the convention, adopted the two-thirds rule. This is a fact that no one will deny, and that rule thus adopted, became, and continued.to be, the law of that convention, and the vio lation of which is the cause, the founda tion of all our troubles. Right or wrong it was the self-imposed law of the conven tion, and could not have been tbe law if it bad not been made so by the majority, and they, and they alone, are responsible for that law—and it was so made the law that a majority, no matter howlaree commonwealth unless amounting to two-thirds of the convention, should not make a nomina tion. This cannot be dispnted. Now, who bid defiance to and broke that law—that two-tbirds rule? No body but the majority who thus made it; and this too is as. true as the fact that it was their own law. And they broke it against the earnest aud oft re peated protestations and entreaties of the minority of the convention. This also is true and all kuow it to be so. Aud al though this rule was adopted, this law made in the interest of peace and har mony aud seemingly out of respect to the opinions, feelings and wishes of the minority, some 142 members of that con vention, and thereby secure harmony in the actions of the convention and satis faction to all in its results, the majori ty in violation of their own rule, their own law, and in contempt of the opin ions, wishes and feelings of that large minority, aud that too at the hazard of breaking up the Democratic party, and to the great disturbance of the peace and quiet of society broke up the convention in violation of their own pledge contain ed in their own law, and recommended only, without a nomination,. Gov. Colquitt, who, in equal violation of his own promise, there announced by Gen. Young not to be a candidate without being nominated by the two-thirds rule, is, under their recommendation, now a candidate for governor. And this too is true. The inajo: ity, as it there wa3 no oilier mau in the whole State worthy and fit for governor but Colquit, tbe minority willing aud agreeing to vote for any other good Democrat but him, who was objec tionable, as they honestly thought, ou ac count of the errors of his administration— the majority still urged him, and would vote for no one else—aud thereon broku up tbe convention. Under these circumstances, this sad condition of tilings brought about by the majority, and which tbe minority were powerless to prevent and retain their selt-respect, tbe minority has presented to the people that able, true and uuswerviug Democrat, the Hon. Thomas M. Nor wood, of the county of Chatham, for gov ernor. Had they not the unquestionable right to do so? Colquitt is running as an “Indepen dent,” without a nomination of the con vention, against their own law and against his own pledge not to run as be is running—and, therefore, running “Inde pendent.” too. And so is ilr. Norwood, and that, too, without the violation of any law, or-any pledge. And lie comes before the people under fairer circum stances, aud has, therefore, more claims upon them than Gov. Colquitt lias, and his ability to discharge the duties of the office, know one will doubt who kuows him; and his moral character is abovo reproach. If the convention, under their own two-thirds rule, or under the majority rule, if they had adopted it, and they certaiuly could have done it—had nomi nated Gov. Colquitt, with all my objec tions to him, I would have voted for him in the interest of the peace and harmony of the Democratic party, hut the majority did not adopt the majority rule, but the two-thirds rule, aud afterwards refused to abide by it. The Democratic convention that met to nominate a governor of Georgia, quite a Dumber of years ago, before the war, had before them as the ouiy candidate for that office, Henry G. Lamar, of Bibb, John H. Lumpkin, of Floyd, and Col. Gardner, of Augusta. That convention, before it made,or attempted to make its nomination, as did our late convention, adopted the two-tliirds rule, .as well as I remem ber, and if they did not adopt that they adopted the majority rule, and they abided by it throughout, and under that rule, whichever rule it was, and I think it was the two-tliirds rule, the convention bal loted several days without being able to make a nomination under the rule they had adopted, the friends of neither of those willing to yield their individual preferences. The harmouy and peace of the Democratic party was for some days greatly disturbed by tbe friends of each of the candidates sticking to them, when prompted by a desire for peace, a mo tion was made to appoint a committee to report to the convention some person not then a candidate as a suitable man for the nomination. Tbe committee was ap pointed, and selected and reported the name of Joseph E. Brown, and he was then chosen as the nominee of the con vention* Harmony was thus restored, and he was elected governor, and that was the way he was first made governor. The minority of the convention, with that and .other such examples before them, and sudi peaceful .results following them, urged that a similar course should be pur sued in the late convention, and which could have beeu done witha similar grati fying result, but the majority refused to do it and treated with contempt their offers of peace thus earnestly held out to them, and in consequence of their tyrannical conduct discord now reigns. Who but —An Iowa woman by her will left an old armchair to one ot her sons. In the stuffing was found a roll of bank notes amounting to $400. The legal question is whether the money belongs to tbe son. tbe “majority” that brought this about by violating their own law is to blame? Who the disorganizers ? And now, why should not all true, consistent, peace-loving Democrats, including all original Colquitt men vote for Norwood. Colquitt and the majority have forfeited all claims upon them, and upon all true Democrats, by an open violation of their own two-third3 rule, and they are the last men in the world who should blame and abuse the minority who would not break, but abided by that rule to the last. Some think this boasted inqjoriiy should hide their faces in shame, and these are, I think, strong reasons to justify such an opinion. So let us all vote as we please, and vote for Norwood. In this we have the illus trious example of Governor Brown. In 1S8S he pleased to vote for Bullock, but his example in that case I did not follow —far from itJ He not only voted for Bul lock, but be voted for him against the gal lant John B. Gordon; and he not only voted for Bullock against Gordon in that memorable contest, but he was a leaflet in, acted with, and advised the “carpet-bag” jarty that, after the election, counted in ilullock over Gordon without ever exhib iting to the public, so far as I ever knew or lieard, the stale of the polls, and it was supposed at that time that Gordon was elected by a large majority. But Gordon was counted out, and Bullock counted in, which was quite as bad, as corrupt, as the counting m of Ilayes over Tilden. After all this, Governor Colquitt preferred Gov ernor Brown to all other men in Georgia to send to the United States Senate, and General Gordon resigned his seat there and made the place vacant for him. I thought then, aud think yet, it was an insult to Georgia, and reflected no credit upon either Governor Colquitt or General Gordon, notwithstanding the “smartness” that some concede to Gov. Brown. General Gordon in liis speech here, on Monday before tbe election for delegates the Wednesday following, and in which there was more real humbuggeiy and less truth than in any speech I ever heard in my life, fully indorsed Governor Brown and his conduct, and argued that he had always been right affll the Democratic leadere, for the Radical vote for Colquitt, there is no doubt, and if they (the Radi cal party) are in the market for saie, they will buy them, for they can command the money, or premise them offices with which to make the purchases. I do not think Governor Brown has any claim upon the Radical party, for he for sook it when he found himself unable to control his 30,000 white Radicals, aud his 90,000 colored ones, and when he was beaten for the United States Senate by that honest and incorruptible man. Joshua Hill, he quit them—they ceased to have power and will to give him office. That party ought voluntarily, of their own free will, give their support to Mr. Norwood, as Governor Brown did, volun tarily, and of his own preference, give Lis vote to Bullock in 1868.

How To Dress Frogs.—As pot pies, stews and cbowdertliey are a failure. The only legitimate way to cook a frog is to fry him brown in sweet table butter. As a preliminary, he must be dipped in a hatter of cracker dust, which should adhere closely when cooked, forming a dainty cracKncll of a golden brown color, with a crisp twang to it when submitted to the teeth.

Halifax, N. S., August 25.—Conley, the Portland oarsman, who defeated Mc Kay last .week, is willing to accept a cha! lenge of Nagle, of St. John, for a three mile race,provided it be rowed ou Bedford basin. The impression here is that the St, John man will not row outside.of. St. John. The Rowing Association, of this city, lias received a proposition for a boat race in England, ou the Thames, early iu De cember. The total amount of prizes is about $5,000, to be divided among the four first boats.

Paris, August 25.—The article of the Forth Germau Gazette on GambetU’s speech at Cherbourg has produced some sensation here. The llepubliquc Fran- caise, if. Garabetta’s organ, replies in moderate but firm language. It disclaims any intention on the part of France to disturb the peace. Provocations have coine during the past ten years not from France but from Germany. The Iiepub- lique Franeahe attributes the article to the wish to justify the enormous German armament. Other Republican papers write iu the 6ame strain. London, August 25.—A dispatch from Dublin to tbe Times says: Some addi tional alarm may perhaps be produced in regard to the state of Ireland among peo- f le at a distance by the disclosure of eniauism rnadeby a correspondent of the New York Herald in Ireland. Very few, however, will be alarmed, or believe it to be important. The secret society of Irish Republicans does exist, but it is compar atively harmless. Such an organization lias attractions for extreme fanatical en thusiasts. It is evidently recognized by the Parnellites, but an association of fanatics is an association of essentially discontented men, and they are beginning to grumble at the smallness of tbeir share of tbe glory of the anti-English agitation. Neither itseli nor its organs in the press are thriving financially. The Farnellite organization is much inore important. The Right Hon. William E. Gladstone embarks at Gravesend, on tho Thames, to morrow, in Messis. Donald & Currie’s coa3t steamship, Grantully Castle, for a cruise around the British coast. A dispatch from Vienna to the Times says: The article of the Forth German Gazette commenting on M. Gambctta’s utterances at Cherbourg, caused a sensa tion here.. Its firm but moderate lan guage is generally approved. Tne Times, in a leading editorial, up holds Gambetta’s speech, which, it says, under tbe circumstanceses, is neither rash nor provocative. The only point of com fort in the challenge of tbe Forth German Gazette, is the avowal that Germany will never again interfere iu political affairs in France. A dispatch from Carulahar states that Gen. Brooks, whose death was previously reported, was shot during the late sortie from that city,while attempting to bring in Captain Cruickshauks, who was wounded. The enemy at Capdahar is making no at tempt at a regular siege. London, August 25.—A dispatch to the Times, from St. Petersburg, says Iu- dian Prince Raunchuudra, who is related to the notorious Nana Sahib, has again appeared as the friend and adviser of Ab- durrahinau Kahn, to meet whom, lie is for the second time on his way to Afghan istan. Suspicions, on account of his former movements in Russia aud Afghan Turkistan, have been created in the minds of those wlio believe in the latest report of Russian intrigues iu Afghanistan, will probably only be increased by the latest advices.
