well Ikwrwtn friend and much laved
fellow ci lin'd,Judge (». Grice,deceased.

greeted us with a good fashioned heai ty
hands Hiiafkitig that made us feel so
much like we were at home, and also
having been invited to the happy homes
of several of the good citizens to share
their hospitaliUen, we felt truly glad
that we bad paid her a visit, and glad
that the Air Line Railroad had been
•chartered to run by her, and hope it
will not be long before the whistle of
the cars can bo heard in her suburbs.
The Superior Court was in session
during our visit, with Judge W. F.
Wright presiding, and dispensing jus
tice in his exact and urbane style—
giving general satisfaction—trying his
best to clean the docket, but signally
failed on the criminal from the fact that
there were not enough men present to
get up a tallis jury to try any criminals.
We are much pleased with the Judge.
He is none of your stuck up, brief au
thority men, nor does he despise the
duy of small things, for when Dr. W
lllalocks house was on fire he rushed
into the moat houso and carried out
bacon and worked generally like a
There seemed to bo hot few cases
tried; noue important enough to make
Miration here. The bar was well rep
resented. Cols. Daily, Stewart and
Filch, of Griffin; Col. Hugh Buchanan,
of Newnan; Col. J. L. Doyal, of Jones
boro Some of these gentlemen have
arrived at the zenith of age and prac
tice while others are young and bid fair
to becomo eminent lawyers. The local
bar was well represented. Col. M. M.
Tidwell, said to be the best versed in
criminal jurisprudence in the country.
Judge J. L. Blalock uml Col. Q. C.
Grice, the latter acting Solicitor Gen
eral with firm ability; the former being
a good practical worker in having bis
cases weU prepared and a zealous
speaker; and l-st, but not least, only
in stature, R. T. Darsey. This young
man has something to do with almost
every case called on the docket, and
what lie does is done witli such zeal
and shilitv we predict that by the time
lie reaches the age of 35 years the
people of this country will be reminded
of another Clay, Calhoun or Webster,
or more modnrnly, a Stephens, Toombs
Wo bad the pleasure of happy greet
ings of many of the good, substantial
old settlers of Fayette, viz: The Kings,
Mcßrides, Denhams, Bennetts, Glasses,
Wares, Blalocks, Giaves, Matthews,
Whitakeis, Favors, Austins, Smiths,
Johnsons, Davises, Redwines, Gays,
Edmondsons, Miners, Thorntons, Wil
kins, Norths, Ellisons, Yates, Eastons,
Clecklors, Mays, and many others, too
tedious to mention here. Some of the
above named have been living in Fay
ette county for fifty or sixty years, and
by the by, they now represent one of
the best counties to its size in the State.
The surface is generally smooth and
fertile, with nice running streams of
pure water, containing more good
swamp land to the same erea than any
section we know of in middle Georgia,
on the whole making one of the must
desirable counties in the State.
Society is good; we saw but very
few person* intoxicated during the
three days we spout there.
The Fairborn Skxtixkl obtained 51
subscribers there in three days We
intend to go there again at the fall
term of the Superior Court and got all
the rest of tle.se good people to take
it if possible. They are a people that
love to sustain home enterprise.
f®r The Atlanta Era says the
oliior of this paper brags on the re

altogether a matter of taste. Os course
it is a matter of taste. t?o much so

Mr. Joint Itcyiiolilh.
We are glad to extend the right
haiid«f citizenship to Mr. Reynolds and
family, who have recently selected the
pleasant'little town of Fairburn as
Mr. Reynolds is a very nice old gen
tinman, and a fine ornamental painter
he gives us a little historic event con
nected with liis early life which is worth
relating, lie was born in the State of
New York in 1708; his father removed
to the city of New York when John was
a child. . Jn the year 1807 or 1808,
John bad gone to a creek, inthe.su
burbs of the city,to fish for minnows
•“With his boyish amuse-
WAit, -tihiee. gym, strangers to him,
dfoye ug y t d %'}'-* ty the jhe
creek, took a small boat, S’ of 10 feet
long, from.-thu dray and launched it in
the creek near by, and asked little John
Reynolds, who was then 7 or 8 years
old, if he could steer a small boat for
them. lie replied in the affirmative,
they placed him on the bow of the
boat, with the tiller ropes in his hands,
with instructions how to guide, and
they then put fire in something which
he says looked like a large tea-kettle.
Soon it began to boil, and the wheels
began to turn rouud and move the
boat up stream with no other passen
ger aboard but little John Reynolds.
The two men walked on the bunk and
observed the movement of the little
craft These two men were Robert
Fulton, and his friend, John R. Living
ston, who, after Fulton having exhaus
ted all his means and convincing him
(L.) that lie could accomplish his plan,
furnished the money to Fulton to per
fect his great discovery of applying
sfeuui successfully and safely to ma
chinery by the use of the safety valve
This was the first experimental trip of
the steam boat, which gave to little
John Reynolds the distinction of h»v .
ing taken the first ride on the waters
on a craft propelled by steam as im
proved by Robt. Fulton.
Since that event, the paddle wheels
of time have borne Robert Fulton, John
It. Livingston and most other men of
their day to the great city of the dead.
But the grand results which have fol
lowed this little experiment of Robert
Fulton have not only moved the pad
dlo wheel* of steam boats on every
navagable river, sea and ocean, where
man has traveled, but it has become a
power which has moved the gigantic
wheels of the world's commerce, and
gave an impulse to the energy of man,
the d< velopment of science, and the
spread of the gospel, that, is destined
to move on witli an increased impetus
until time shall cease to roll her pon
derous wheels farther.
The Savanah News, of Saturday,
There appears to bo some mystery in
this Gould business. We have heard
it hinted that the Government officials
have been apprised of his movements
all along, and that, notwithstanding
the fact that the valiant General
Ezyzmowski, with considerable blust
er and commotion, followed the retreat
ing Collector torough a portion of
Florida, be gave up the chase, know
ing that Gould was before him. In
confirmation of this, the Flatka Herald,
of the 26th inst., says
"Wo learn from a passenger on the
Hattie, from Enterprise, that Gould,
the late Revenue defaulter of Savau
nah is on the Gulf coast in the neigh
borhood of Manatee. If this is so, it
seems strange that the Supervisor
should go to the expense of character
ing a steamer at this place, which
took his Honor as far as O.litimkie
aud back without further investiga
llog Cholera and its Remedy. —The
Charlotte N. C. Democrat says: a gen
tleman who lias been traveling in the
Western part of this State informs us
that the disease among hogs known as
" cholera” lias spread beyond the Blue
Ridge and that many hogs have died
with it. A fanner in Yadkin county
has checked the disease by washing
out the mouth and throat of the hog
with a strong dcooratiou made from

He lias not long since used the remedy.
A littlu alum added to the decoction

He is 87 years old, an active man, and
works daily in lira field, following the
