Walk round toivx. —Tired of;
the tedium and ir uCdd of our office we |
hunt and no onr hat and start' and ou a (
stroll Wlieie should we go? It j
"i— aI v -ly ev. uing, ad we knew
that go w ere we w and our eyes j
w uht least n the bn mties of latme
and the art of m in. So, we were not !
long in find ii,' a st u iiog point.
L iving our office we first run into j
Me Floyd’s wagon and hiiggv shop.—
M F. gav< ns a hearty welc .me, as
did als Mi -s s. Christopher, Reynold*
and ( eli: an I’hese gentlemen all
in. lersiand their business and can put

-1" e advise oor leaders not to send
N rth so. wag ms and buggies when
.Mr. Floyd can put thorn up to order
as cheap and better. Rut we must be
i long oil.
As we turned to the right, going
Southward, we met our friends, Messrs,
W J. James and W. (J. Malone, on
the corner, both good clever gentle
men, always ready to extend a hearty
welcome to their friends They have
a nice bar and a level billiard table
line (lie young people love to meet
and pass an hour in a social game or
a sparkling glass of the very best
that can ho had. There is no gam
bling allowed in their house—the best
of order prevails universal. The bar is
supplied with the best liquors, oysters,
cigars, sardines, pickles, canned fruils,
and any thing else that could tempt
the appetite of man. If their good
variety and good qualities doiql at
tract for them the custom of every
man, then we don’t know where to tell
our friends to go to find what they
Fussing on to the next door we find
Dr John (loodman behind Ids counter
busy as he can lie selling drugs, lie
has a nice drug store —every thing ar
ranged in perfect style, and no one en
ter his store without feeling easy in a
few minutes. The Doctor lias some
preparations of his own which are
wining an enviable reputation wliere
ever they have beentriel- His sar
saparilla hitters are the most pleasant
tonic in the market, being put up in
the purest article of whiskey and ;
possessing all the virtues of the sar- ;
saparilla. His liver pills certainly j
have, done more good toward relieving 1
the aillieted than any other remedy.— !
And there is his fire lighter—a little j
ahead of any thing we have ever seen, i
They are the very thing every family I
need. In less than one minute after
getting out of bed you can have a
light that will shine for ymu in rain
and wind, an i y>u can start a fire in
the stove for your wife without the
use of pine. (For full particulars see
Siiuin Sliinpkins on first page.) Presto
We next enter the store of Andrews
& Roberts, both polito, nice and real j
gentlemen. They have a good stock ,
of dry goods and groceries—selected ;
with much taste, and suited to supply
the demand. Mr. Roberts, we believe, i
is principal salesman, and a nice
young man he is too. (lie’s not mar
ried, young ladies.) And here sits
Mi L. S. Roan, a partner in law of
Mr. Andrews. They are well versed
in law and in most cases are successful
in their practice. These gentlemen ;
are both young and have a brilliant j
future before them.
Ci ine we again to a bar. We did
not take a very extensive survey of
this house but are told that Mr Davis, I
has a very g>">d supply of liquors and
intends to keep nothing but the best
that can be bought. M . D.vis is
from Palmetto and i < a nice gentleman. j
Here we aie at tiie variety store of
J. Brantley. If keeps a supply of
dry g ids and groceries and most any ;
thing you want. This is one of the i
best stores in the place, and Mr. B. !
one of our best and most energetic ;
citizeens. We wish him all manner
Mr. Thomas McD maid cones next as
we pass. Lie keeps a good liar and j
deals out fine liquors to his customers. I
Mr. Me. lias h< en doing business too
long in Fairburn to need more than j
that wc say that he is still at his old ;
stand and still continues to deal fairly
and honestly with his friends.
We now come to the provision store j
of Ron,i i>n A. Byrd. T :ey deal al
most exclusively in provisions, and
enjoy an extensive patronage from the
l iwii and county. They aie both
honest, fair dealing gentlemen and de
serve the patronage of all
But we must now return, with a ;
promise that we will continue our I
walk at an A her time.
Wf* Brass Band.—Mr. Joe Brantley
is now negotiating for a set of band
instruments for the young men of this
place, and we hope before long to hear
a concord of sweet sounds by the Fair
burn Brass Band.
Irish Potatoes —We return our
thanks ti Mrs. Dr Malone for a mess
if fine Irish potatoes, the largest and
finest we have seen this season. We
hear that Mrs. Malone has a very fine
garden She will please accept out
thanks for this nice treat.
isaY" A Curiosity. —We saw this
evening, just as we were going to
press, a lamb with eight legs. From
the shoulders baek were two well-form
ed bodies. It has only one neck and
head It was dead when found this
morning. Mr. Joe! G. Mann, of Fay
ette, who lives about five miles from
this place, was showing it to us. It
is certainly a great curiosity.
Isair Call at the store of L. L. Lau
drum when you want to buy Hats,
Sugar, Coffee, Syrup, or any thing else
usually kept in a country village store.
He has just received from New York a
fine lot of hats of all sizes and colors
which he is selling very cheap, and
fiotn New Orleans a fine lot of family
groceries consisting of sugar, coffee,
syrup and flour, all of which he will
sell low for cash. Be sure to give him
a call before purchasing. You will re
ceive due attention from hie polite
clerk, H. R llubgood.
S&r A Good Ordinance.— Our town
council, at its last session, passed an
ordinance prohibiting the. cuttiug of
any tree of any size or kind within the
corporate limits of the town and mak
ing it a penal offence. The object of
the act is to protect the new streets on
the South side of the Railroad and to
prevent persons frotn clearing out said
streets unless by the direct orders of
tin* council. That part of the town lias
been recently laid out and has streets
sixty feet wide, which is at present in
original growth, and it would be a pity
to have them hacked up and cleared in
an ugly manner. But if they are prop
erly attended to and shade trees left
standing where they should he, it will
add greatly to the beauty and general
appearance of that part of town.
Stir The picnic. —At the early hour
of seven in the morning, our village
seemed to be alive. Young gentlemen
hurrying to and fro with one object
alone in view. Girls dressed with
neatness and simplicity, making pre
parations (or a picnic excursion to the
venerable town of Campbellton. Pres
ently two commodious wagons with
several buggies filled with jolly girls
and boys, accompanied by the “ good
old ladies, (as they are called), Mrs.
Goodman and Cantrell.
Eight miles were soon traversed,
which brought us to the place of destin
ation. The entire journey was one
fraught with laughter and merry-mak
ing. The forest resounded the joyful
We were heartily welcomed by the
good people of the village. I suppose
nearly all my readers are acquainted
with Campbellton, consequently, it
needs no description. I will merely
state that it is situated on the banks
of the Chattahoochee, whose placid
waters glide so smoothly on toward
the main. Had these waters the
tongue of revelation many a tale of love
and courtship would be revealed to
which they alone were auditors. Near
it-s hanks stands the far famed Magic
Rock. It is firmly believed when a
youth and maiden go upon this rock
together they will marry. 'T was here
many of onr sires wooed and wuu their
fair brides. Hut, excuse me, lam
\Ve all repaired to the courthouse
and, after a rest of a short time, con
cluded to go down to the river and
cross over into Douglass. After spend
ing the time very pleasantly here, all
with one accord voted to return to the
court house and dine. “The old folks ”
thought nectar and ambrosia would be
sufficient for them, but concluded to
take something more substantial.—
When we arrived and made known our
wishes, the matrons spread before us
a table richly laden with every delicacy.
To which we all did ample justice.—
To the young lady who feasted us on
those delicious strawberries, we return
'■ur most sincere thanks. The after
noon was spent in music, dancing and
strolling. About five o’clock, p. rn.,
the ladies suggested that it was time
to return. Many remonstrances were
made on the part of the young, but the
elders carried their point.
After bidding a most affectionate
farewell to the good citizens of (Jainp
bellton, we weuded oar way back to
Fairburn—all having had a splendid
time. We arrived here after night had
drawn her sable curtains.
From all I can learn, many lost their
hearts, which will surely result in
Something serious. One young gentle
man is now offering fifty dollars reward
for the young lady who has his in her
possession. So, ye thieves had best
look out. Amicus.
Pay the small bills. —With the open
ing of the year all small bills should
be promptly paid. The men to whom
they are due generally need the money.
The little bills are the ones that makes
numberless gaps in the world of busi
ness. How much comfort to families,
cheer to desponding business men and
encouragement generally would be
given by the immediate discharge of
ail iittle aDd, perhaps, half forgotten
obligations. Pay small debts, and it
is a capital time to commence this very
Subscribe for The Fairburn Sext'nel,
Washington, May 4—The follow
ing is Uraut’s proclamation:
Ibe act of Congress enuitled, "an
act to enforce the provisions of the
14th amendment to the Constitution ol
the U. S-, uud for other purposes,” ap
proved April 20, A. D. 1871, being a
law of extraordinary public import
ance, I consider it my duty to issue
this, my proclamation, calling the at
tention of the people es the United
Slates thereto, enjoining upon all good
citizens, and especially upon ull public
officers, to bo zealous in the enforce
ment thereof, and warning all persons
to abstain from committing any of the
acts thereby prohibited. This law of
Cougiess applies to all parts of the
United States, and will be enforced
every where, to the extent of the pow
er vested in the Executive; but inas
much as the necessity therefor is well
known to have been caused chiefly by
persistent violations of the rights of
citizens of the United States, by a
combination of lawless and disaffected
persons in certain localities lately the
theatre o>' insurrection and military
conflict, I do particular!, exhort tne
people of those parts of the country
to suppress all such combinations by
their own efforts through the agency
of local laws and to maintain the
rights of all citizens of the United
States, and to secure to all such citi
zens the equal protection of the laws.
Fully sensible of the responsibility
imposed upon the Executive by the act
of Congress, to which public attention
is now called, and reluctant to call in
forces aiyof the extraordinary powers
thereby conferred upon me, except in
cases of imperative necessity, do nev
ertheless deem it my duty to make
known that I will not hesitate to use
the powers thus vested in the Execu
tive, whenever and wherever it shall
become necessary to do so for tho pur
pose of securing to all citizens of the
United States the peaceful enjoyment
of the rights guaranteed to them by
the Constitution and laws. It is my
earnest wish that peace and cheerful
obedience to law may prevail through
out the land, and that all traces of our
late unhappy civil strife may be speed
ily removed. These ends can be easi
ly reached by acquiescing iu tho re
sults of the conflict now written in our
Constitution, and by tho due and pro
per enforcement of equal, just and im
partial laws in every part of our coun
try. The failure of local communities
to furnish such means for the attain
ment of results, so earnestly imposes
upon the National Government the
duty of putting forth all its energies
for the protection of its citizens, of
everr race aud color, and for the re
storation of peace and order through
out the entire country.

Glue which will unite even Polished
Steel. —A Turkish receipt for a ce
ment used to fasten diamonds and
other precious stones to metallic sur
faces of polished steel, although expos
ed to moisture, is as follows: “ Dissolve
5 or 6 bits of gum mastic, each of tho
size of a large pea, in as much spirits
of wine as will suffice to render it li
quid, in another vessel dissolve in
brandy, as much isinglass, previously
softened iu watar, as will make a 2 oz
vial of strong glue adding 2 small bits
of gum ammoniac, which must be rub

whole with heat. When it is to be
used, set the vial in boiling water.
