The Governor referred the appli cation to the Attorney-General for his opinion. Owing to the press of other matters, Attorney-General Anderson only reached this question a few days ago and decided not to render an cpinion until he had heard from both parties at interest. To-day both parties were before the Governor and the Ateorney-General. Gov ernor Smith and Jndge Hopkins repre sented the penitentiary companies and Hoke Smith and Colonel II. F. Abbott ap peared for the Marietta and North Georgia railroad. * Mr. Smith asked that the hear ing be continued, as they had no formal notice of this application until last Thurs day and had seen the application for the first time to-day and had not time to finish reading it.

[fPECTAL CORRESPONDENCE.] Atlanta, March 4.—I had n desultory conversation with Senator Mandeville, of the thirty-seventh district, this morning, ‘about men and politics, from which I take stew items. Under the rotation system, still recognized in his district, tar. Mantle- Till, will not be a candidate for re election. Troup county it entitled to name the next Senator, and the candidates now in tho field are T. C. Cfenshaw and Charles Ma bry ■ In the thirty-sixth, well represented in the last Senate by Hon. George J. Martin, of Meriwether, Coweta will furnish the next Senator, and the indications are that the rece will be between Hon, Lavender Kay, of Newnan, and Hon. Wm. Post, of Grantrille. In the Athens district It Is likely Dr. H. H. Carlton will capture the Senatorial honors. Mr. Mandeville is of the opinion that the next Senate will be nude up largely of ' young men. , In the fourth Congressional district It It beliered that Judge Buchanan will not ask a reflection, In which event the probabili- i tv is that cx-Congressman Henry Per- sou snd Hon. W. A. Little will make the race. In this connection Governor Smith's same Is also mentioned, but he is not like ly lobe a candidate. 8peaklngof Tilden. Mr. Mandeville ex- prnsed the opinion that the recent demon- I stretion in favor of tbs old ticket would amount to nothing.

Additional Particulars of the Fearful Wreck. When tlie people picked up the Tele graph and Messenoeh yesterday morning and redd the report of the collision at Ju liette, there was a gloom cast over the city. It was the first serious accident on the new road between Macon and Atlanta, and much sympathy was expressed for the un fortunate victims. The body of engineer Howdcr was placed in a fine metallic case and forwarded to Atlanta yesterday morning, on its way to Indianapolis, of which place he was a na tive. The remains of fireman Pruitt were also placed in a neat coffin and sent to his family In Atlanta. Tlie collision occurred as we stated yes terday. When Capt. Gillespie and en gineer Ilowder left Macon Monday after noon, they were about an hour behind time. The register in the office shows that both conductor and engineer of train 52 registered at 5:35. Previous to this, at :28, they both signed the following order from the train dispatcher, Samuel Hunt, at Atlanta: “Train 53 will run to Juliette regardless of train 52. (Signed) “& H. It seems that Conductor Gillespie read this order hurriedly and uncerstood it to read, as afterwards learned, that 52 should run to Juliette regardless of 53. This was THE FATAL MISTAKE. Having then the idea that his train should run to Juliette regardless of the down train, or 53, Capt. Gillespie went on* tvard with his train. Engineer Howder could not see the coming train. Just where the coll Won took place is a sharp curve—in fact, the track winds about in a series of curves at that point, and he had only time to see the approaching locomo tive within a few feet of him. The lamp in A Five Minutes* Chat with Superintendent Mallory Captain J. K. Mallory, superintendent of the Macon and Brunswick division of tlie EastTcnnessce, Virginia and Georgia railroad, lias just returned from a visit to headquarters at Knoxville. Of the report ed wholesale cutting down of force all along the line, our reporter asked: “What truth is there in the report that three hundred men have been taken off your line?” ••Well, we have reduced our force, as we do every year when the business season close*, but I do not know that the reduc tion will reach that number.” “What class of employes are cut down?” “Section gangs, principally. Our run ning force remains the same. We have a system in force that is thorongh and com plete. For instance, tlie cost of running on my division requires a certain amount, and having carefully fig ured on that amount, it is a maximum. We pay our engineers for every mile they run, every conductor and train hand for every trip he makes, and every laborer for every day he works. We may have five hundred men to-day and two hundred to-morrow; but the average is the same.” “You say this reduction is due to tlie Thirty-Ninth Annual Report OFFICE, Nos. 346 and 348 BROADWAY, N. Y.

D. 197 Fourth street, Macon, Ga. sepl5wly A Cyclone Suftarar. Yesterday a man giving his name as Baum went to several of our merchants soliciting money for tlie cyclone sufferers In the counties around Macon. As he laid he was a son of Mr. A. Baum, the well- known merchant at Toombsboro, and the cause he represented was one calculated to arouse sympathy, he succeeded In fleecing several merchants. He went Into the office of Mr. William Uaxleliurst, whu gave him IS. As he was going out he was recognized named Meyer by Mr. the headlight of S3's engine would not burn for some reason, and hence there was no light. Engineer Van Winkle, ol that en gine, saw (lie rays of 52's headlight upon the iron rails ahead of him, ana thought that the light came from a Headlight. Ho applied the airbrakes, reversed his engine, gavo her all possible steam, blow Ills whistle and with his fire man jumped into the darkness. When they jumped the engine ran the length of a car and the collision occurred. The two engines went together with a terrible crash. Both reared their heads and then turned toward the embankment, against which they leaned, tlulr machinery interlocked. Tho tenders were turned around across the track, and four freight cars, loaded with oranges FILED rELLMELL upon tlie top of tlie northbound tender. The end of the baggage, mail and express car of the southbound train was broken in by contact with the tender next to it. Ex press Messenger Clower was thrown vio lently to tlie floor, and but for his iron safe, behind which he fell, and which pre vented the timbers from crashing him, would very probably have been killed. IBs shoulder was dislocated, from which injury he suffered greatly. Route Agent Gossett, who was in tbo mall compart ment of the car, was first thrown upon his distributing table, then upon hla mail-bag rack, and then to the floor. He was un close of the business season?’ "Yes; the busy season being over, we cut down tlie force because there is lighter Tunning. Our business resumes in June or thereabouts, when the same force will be nut on again.” '•When are you going to build the new depot?” * “That I can’t say. I was too busy with other matters while in Knoxville to ask about It, though I feel quite sure it will be built at an early day. It occupies a prom inent position on the programme for the near future. The excavation must be com pleted, you know, before the building is commenced, and that will probably be this summer.” "Anything else In the way of news?" "Well, you might say that workmen are fitting up our up-town office, at Board- roan’s corner, and Mr. C. B. Walker, onr f ;eneral ticket agent, will be in there in a cw days to famish tickets and informa tion to the public.” A Military Suggestlon- Kditon Telegraph and Sleeunger.—lt I am not asking too mucli from you, I would like to make a tew suggestions througl* your paper in regard to the coming caval ry tilt to bebad at the park in Jane next They propose to have a grand re-union of ail the cavalry companies in the State, Now, would it not be a good idea for tome of our enterprising captains of the military companies here to go to work and get up a tournament for the infantry companies of the State.

Officer James was told to watch the man, by the crash, and found Captain Roid standing by him with Mr. Hal!, hat in hU hand, which had fallen to the floor from the rack. The conductor and male pas senger* then rushed out of the cars. The passenger and baggage coaches of the north-bound train escaped Injury, and the passengers experienced only a slight ar. This was because cf the number of reight cars between them and the engine. Among tlie passengers was Mr. Alex Blue, who wae In charge of tho bridge and tac tion gangs between Macon and Atlanta. As soon as the crush was heard lie rushed out of the car to CLEAR THE WRECK. A force, consisting of Captain Reid, Mr. Hell, Mr. Bine and several patsengen.waa organized and they at once eet to work. Finding that the lire from tlie engines was in danger of being communicated to the cars, they concluded to disconnect the cars.

There is a growing disposition among tho people of Georgia that there ought to be a change in our public servants, especially in State departments. This demand does not arise from a suspicion that any one who now fills those posi tions has gone wrong, but upon the principle that if these offices be bur dens other patriotic citizens should - i - -1 • t’.rlll.
