Appreciating the honor and ad vantage of having the member of i Congress from their county. Bartow has for the last three terms, given her candidate, i)r. Felton, a major ity that second his election. Tliis county now ha* it in her power to win the honors, and n joy the Ad vantages secured, by having the member from this county, by elect ing the Hot.. J, C. Clements. There are many rea-ooft why Walker county should crime up sol id for Col. Clements, aside from county priie. Our peoj le have tried him, and liave fjtind him eqtlaUo every position to which trify called him in tlie past. He is tried and true, ulwiivson the side of retrenchment and ri form, and of that substantial kind that would idievo the people of the burdens that are pressing them dow n. If the people want a man that's i a farmer; a man that him toiled and home the heat and burden of the I day : Hon. J. C. Clements is the ! man. If the people want a self-made man ; a man that has struggled against fate and the difficulties that j environ the pathway of every one that would rise to eminence and exalted usefulness; one who lias fought the battle of life gallantly and won in every conflict: Hon.

These attachments are be coming very popular, and we have j no doubt but what it wiR prove a success in the present instance. Atlanta Constitution : The candi dacy of Mr. Norwood—condemned to overwhelming defeat from its in ception— received its death blow in the failure of the attempt to se cure for it the indorsement of the Republican Convention. Home Courier: Col. J. C. Clem ents name in from Summerville Thursday evening and left yester- j day morning for Calhoun, where ! he speaks to-day. Col. Clements is in good spirits and fine trim. , He will return to-morrow, to fill i his uppointmemt litre on Satur day. We were at a loss to know where or how the Summerville Gazette, | stood on tlie congressional race un 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 one oh old massn's fat gobblers, but | 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.” NEWS IN GENERAL.

Journal sin,« that whatever may fie Said ahout the colored people, they are cer tainly kind and charitable. During the stor n on last, Monday when the house of the Misses Hearn, of that place, Mew down, the colored pen*, pie gathered there and offered them their services. The Misses Hearn being disinclined to leave, the col ored people told .them if they didn’t go with them out of the storm, they (the colored people) would he com pelled to take them (the Misses Hearn) up and carry them to their own houses out of the storm. They finally yielded and sought re'Cuge beneath the roof of one of their colored friends. No while person 4 was living near. 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 lican party. Col. John W. Forney 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. | The most important service of j which i« a full and exhaustive life |of Gen. Hancock. ill is jiestined in high rank as a campaign hiog ' rnphy. Though different in pol itics, the author and tiie subject been intimate life-long friends, j Mini hence C"l. Korney has petson j nf knowledge of most of the bril j limit achievements of Gwi Hancock ! oid all the circumstances connected with them. Added to this, Gen. Hancock has so approved his work | as to place at his disposal his per j soiuil memoranda, correspondent e, ! official and private papers. With 1 such facilities the work will lie j absolutely full and authentic, the i standard on the subject. Asa biographer. Cel. Kornev will be to Gen. Hancock what Boswell was to Johnson, Lockhart to Wal ter Scott, or Ahott to Bonaparte. It is a “Labor of Love,” act mated by a grand enthnelasni and carried with a degree of ability and grace that will place it in front rank of A,mrriean biographies. The career of the brilliant soldier with an army record extending through 35 years, is worthy of such a pen. It is full of evnt and is soon to he crowned hy the more im portant one of a transfer to the White House, which will make the hook one of permanent value. It will lie sold by subscription and will surely meet with a large sale. It is being published hv the well know n house of 11UBBARD BROS., Atlanta, Georgia. Investigation. Evry man should he willing, and we think should he anxious to investigate every thing which is so Jikely to benefit all mankind as [lie discovery of Kendall's Spavin (Pure, because it is now being used on'human flesh with innstfremark able beneficial rheuma tism and deep seated pains, and it has proved by experience that it is equally yts good for human flesh as for any animal. It is penetrating and powerful, and yet it can be us ed full strength with perfect safety on a child rts well as on a grown person. For all blemishes on horses, it never has had an equal. Read the advertisement for Kendall's Spavin Cure. Is it possible Tiiat a remedy made of such com mon,simple plants as Hops, Buchu, Mandrake, Dandelion, Ac., make so many mid much marvelous and wonderful cures us Hops Bitters do? It must tie, for when old and young, rich and poor, Pastor and Doctor, Lawyer and Editor, all testify to having been cured hy them, we I must believe and doubt no longer.
