DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES
UNION REPUBLICAN PARTY OF GEORGIA.
ADOPTED BY THE STATE CONVENTION,
Atlanta, July 4th, 1867.
Whexia*, We, humbly acknowledging our de
pendence upon an overruling Providence, who
shapes the destinies ol men’and nations, thank Al-
migbty God for having, through agencies and in
strumentalities in His wisdom selected, preserved
our Government when its deepest foundations
were being shaken by the mighty upbeavings of
• the recent rebellion. And
W hereas, The loyal men of Georgia desire the
earliest practicable settlement of the disturlied
condition of the country: and whereas, we believe
that the establishment of justice is essential to en-
, luring peace, that patriotism should be exalted
I as a virtue, and it is the duty of the State to cher
ish all its people; and whereas, those who assert
these principles are called Republicans, through
out the Uuion. Therefore,
: Resolved, 1st. That we adopt the name of the Union
Republican party of Georgia, and declare our
selves in alliance'with the National Republican
party of the Union, and for the unconditional sup-
t port of the Union of these States.
Resolved, 2. That we pledge our hearty suffer,
tt> the reconstruction measures of the Congress of
tho United States.
Resolved. S. That it is the duty of the State to
! educate all her children, and to that end, we rc-
• commend the establishment of a general system
i of free schools.
Resolved. 4. That the Union Republican Party is
: identified in its history and by its essential prin-
I ciples with the rights, the interests and the digni-
i ty of labor, uud is in sympathy with the toiling
i masses of society, and that the working men of
i Georgia will receive at its hands every encourage
ment and assistance that may be necessary to pro
ject their full rights; an.l, that in the mainten
ance of the position taken and the principles
I we have this day avowed, we cordially invite the
J co-operation of all citizens, without regard to their
; political antecedents.
Resolved, 5. That the Union Republican Party
! of the State of Georgia pledges iti-elf to maintain
I the free and legal rights of ail men, and to
ubide by the prescribed terms of restoration, in
| electing to office those men only who can comply.
! in all respects, with the requirements of the Acts oi
| Congress, and who prefer the Government of the
i United States to any other that could ’.io framed.
Dangerous Folly.—Kli Steelman call
ed upon Miss Rebecca McCaddon, in Zanes
ville, Ohio, recently. The lady, after some
conversation, went to a bureau, took out a
revolver, pointed it—in fur., of course—at
her lover, who was lying upon a sofa, and
accidentally pulled trigger. The piece, to
her great astonishment, was discharged,
lodging a bullet in the young man’s breast,
just below the heart. The wound is dan
gerous. The lady didn't believe the pistol
was loaded, and is in great distress at the
result of her folly.
Hopeful Indication.—Impartial Suf
frage and Amnesty will yet be the rule in
the United States, but not for a season yet.
We notice that the Albany Evening Journ
al comes out strongly in favor of incorpor
ating the principle of impartial manhood
suffrage upon the platform of the New
York Republican Convention at Syracuse.
The Journal is well understood to be Mr.
New Hotel in Chattanooga.—The
Union, of the ‘27th, learns that Mr. Spencer
will commence building a first class hotel
upon the ruins of the Crutchfield House, as
soon as the business of the Crutchfield
nouse is settled with the Insurance Com
panies. A good hotel will always be
profitable at that stand.
North Georgia.—The editor of the
Chattanooga Union, who has recently vis
ited Atlanta, says:
A trip over the Western and Atlantic
Railroad to Atlanta, has convinced us that
the people in that section of country, how
ever great thier political troubles may lie,
will no longer suffer for want of food. The
corn fields were extensive and the yield
appeared to be excellent. Here and there
the white cotton bolls were unfolding
themselves, and in one instance we saw the
negroes gathering the dethroned king as in
oluen times; but corn seemed the prin
cipal crop, and large fields of it were stand
ing on every side. % The people of Georgia
are doing wisely, in making themselves
independent of the world for a subsis
Washington, Sept. 28.—The Fraxer,

The Cotton Crop in Eastern and Mid
dle Georgia—Business Prospects.—A cor
respondent of the New York Time-*, wri
ting from Augusta, Sept. 20th, says:
Tito, iniury to the crops by the recent
rain has been much greater and more wide
spread than was supposed. In the south
western portion of the State, which i> the
principal cotton region, the damage has
been very extensive. 1 have received ac
counts from several counties, upon which
perfect reliance may be placed, which rep
resent the loss at front a fourth to a third
of the crop. Where the land w:ts richest
and tlie plant most luxuriant, the lndl-rot
and the ravages of tlie boll-worm have
been most disastrous. On some plantations
where a bale of cotton to the acre was con
fidently and reasonably expected, a quar
ter-bale will not lie gathered. I leant also
that tlie cotton which lias already I wen
picked is of a very inferior quality. This
and the great decline in price, and the an
ticipation of a still greater decline, make
planters very despondent, and create con
siderable consternation among all classes
who looked to the cotton crop as tho means
of storing material prosperity, enabling
debtors to pay their debts, and merchant-,
to ply an active trade during the fall and
winter. Believing that it would be abun
dant and was secure, the merchants in the
principal towns went North sonic weeks
ago, and ordered large stocks of merchan
dise of all sorts, which are Just licgitining
to arrive. They are not. now nearly as
hopeful as they were, and would very glad
ly recall many of their purchases of •‘fancy
? oods,” if it were still in their power.

Thk Xkohoes in Washington County—
A u SceneP—We have some miserable
skunks in Georgia who, to obtain office,
would fathom the lowest hell of degrada
tion. The Augusta correspondent of the
New York Times says:
The negroes of Washington county re
cently adnilnistefed a very severe rebuke
to an extra enthusiastic candidate for the
Convention, who was seeking their suf
frages and advocating perfect social, as well
as political equality between tne races,
even to the extent of intermarriage. When
he said he would just as willingly see his
daughter addressed by black as by white
men, bis colored audience hooted and
veiled, and refused to listen to him any
longer. This occurred at a little place
called Davisboro’, and caused a good deal
Cotton.—Austell & Inman, cotton and
commission merchants of 62 Wall street,
New York, have issued a circular showing
a carefully compiled statement of the cot
ton crop of the United States for the year
ending September 1, 1S67. From that
statement we copy tlie following remarks:
Wc are not able to give our figures show
ing the total crop and movement of cotton
in the United Spates for the year ending
September 1,1667. The receipts, as will le
seen, very nearly approximate those of
last year, the ttXar Teaching 2.019,271 bales,
against 2,193,987 bales for tbe previous
twelve months, indicatingadecrea.se in tbe
receipts this year of only 174,716 bales, it
would be impossible to state with accuracy
what proportion of this aggregate was the
product of the last year, estimates differ
ing so widely with regard to the amount
of the old crop not brought forward at the
close of 1865-6. We think, however, we
may safely take this old surplus at 300.000
bales, and shall then have left about 1,700.-
000 bales as the total products of the past
season. Ti^iew year begins with unusu
ally small stock in the interior, and we
mast, therefore, look almost entirely to the
new crop for our receipts during tne com
ing twelve months.
