We were at a loss to know where
or how the Summerville Gazette, |

til we catne across tlie following,
and which we suppose settles it:
.7. C. Clements, candidate for
ogress, gave a ringing talk Tues
nonn. The court house was
led, and many could not find
irig room. We think he pro
-11 very good impression.”
•ita Constitution: The just
oughtful pooplfe pf Georgia
tolerate or indorse thecou
if the Norwood nmh that in
d Governor Colquitt at Macon,
following is an extract from
ore of many letters from formerly
anti-Colquitt men :
" After Governor Colquitt's sliame
fii'’frpatment at Macon, I. for one,
will not cant, my vote or give my
influence to party or set v'
men who can act 8() shameful a
manner. For this season, to ether
with the chain gang I am
for Colquitt first and last. P.”
“J” writes to the Atlanta Constilu■'
lion an amusing amfrdota illustra
tive of "the way Norwood got his
nomination." Ilesaya: “Theother
day after Norwood had made a
speech at New ran, and made, it is
said, a few converts (to Colquitt) j
the irrepressible Jim Carmichael,
ol Coweta, was called on fora speed i.
Among other good things lie told
how Norwood got his nomination. ,
He said some good colored folks
were talking about special provi
dence, when one said, ‘I don’t he- 1
lieve in it/* ‘For,’ said tie. 'IV I j
be enpraying dese many years and j
aJxing far de go >d Lord to send me j

aldo I prayed and looked for de j
Lord to send him on, he nebber i
comes. Den I just conclude I quit
praying and go for dat gobbler my- ;
self and den you bet he comes in.’ j
So Mr. Norwood had been praying j
for many years for tlie nomination |
and it no comes, then lie just goes
after it, then it comes.”

Forney’s Life of (fen. Hancock.
It is a singular fact that the most
eulogistic and exhaustive campaign
biography of Gen. Hancock should
he written hy one whose pen and
tongue for years have done the
most signal service for the Repub

of Philadelphia, whose reputation
as a graceful and forcible writers
i and man of letters, is so well knpwn
| h ith in his country and Europe, a
pet of republican administrations,
and most of the time an office hold
| er for 20 years, has not only severed
j his connection with the Garfield
j crowd, hut has thrown all his abili
| ty and enthusiasm into the cim
| paigti for llie Democrat cat didaie.

j nf knowledge of most of the bril

with them. Added to this, Gen.
Hancock has so approved his work

1 such facilities the work will lie
