We have received from Mr. John Henry
Brown, of Dallas, Texas, a copy of his ad

at its 13th annual reunion, April 20—21,
being the semi centennial anniversary of
the battle of San Jacinto, in 1836.

Attention is being called to the fact
that Jeff Davis is vigorous at the age of
78. He has survived all his colleagues in
the Senate of 1860 save three, and he has
good chances to be the last of that famous
body to succumb to the grim reaper. The
survivors are R. M. T. Hunter, Simon
Cameron and Lyman Trumbull.
M ajor Bacon spoke in Augusta last
evening in response to a serenade. He
discussed Go.don’s candidacy and the
issues of the campaighn. We cannot but
think the Major makes a mistake in mak
ing any comment upon Gordon’s running.
It is any man's privilege to offer for place,
and in doing so one does not interfere with
any other man’s rights. He very prop
erly, and as we expected, proposed to
conduct a clean canvass.
In another column we give a readable
sketch of the Rev. Joshua Knowles, of
Greensboro, the oldest journalist in the
State, who dates back his newspaper w’ork
to 1836, just 50 years ago.
Mr. Knowles has been an honor to our
journalism, an able writer and a pure
man. He has been connected with the
Rome Courier, Milledgeville Recorder,
Macon Messenger. Ho has given us a
son who is an honor too to the State pn ss.
Long may they both live.
The Capitol favors primary elections
in the counties as the fairest and best way
of getting the public will. With our heavy
Democratic majority, a Democratic nomi
nation is equivalent to an election. The
decisive tight is over the nomination, and
the largest expression of the party will is
desired, and the primary ballot best gives
this. This is our position without regard
to its effect upon persons. We look sim
ply to the public interest and to securing
the popular desire. And beyond this we

The Georgia Pacific Railroad was not a fail
ure. Gen. Gordon put this enterprise on its
feet and made a fortune by it. For 30 years the
Georgia Pacific languished. It was then known
as the Georgia Western. It was the pet hobby
of Atlanta. It solved the rich dream of direct
ly tapping the Alabama fields of illimitable
coal and joining us to the Mississippi. Repeated
failures were made in this. But Gordon gave it

A civilian soldier who entered the war as a
Captain and rose to be a Lieutenant General
and shared with Lee the closing glory of the
war, and a citizen who has made two large for

the criticism that he has been a complete fail
ure in his management.
Gordon rose as brilliantly in politics, being
elected once Governor and twice United States
Senator, and came from his public trusts, poor
in a general time of corruption. And even his
legitimate pay was reduced by the incessant
drafts of old soldiers upon it.
Recently the Seventh Regiment of New York

The roysterers of the 7th turned things topsy
turvy. They ordered up cases of champagne.
They threw quarters from the fourth and fifth
floors of Willard's and the Ebbitt into Fourteen
th street for the mob of bood-blacks to fight
over. When they got twenty-five or thirty boys
in a struggling mass they threw pitches of wa
ter on them, to which the excited urchins paid no
more attention than if it was fresh air.
About 3 in the morning a few opened their
bed-room doors and began to imitate cats.
“Moaow” would come from one quarter, an
answering “rfleaow" would come from another,
and so on until every corridor in the house rang
with caterwaulings. After awhile this would
die out, to be renewed just as everybody had
got to sleep again. In the early evening about
forty formed in chain-gang step and inarched
up street whistling the time. When they met
ladies they woul I halt, and their officer cry
out, “one, two, three—bib,” and off would go
every cap in a polite bow to the amusement of
the lookers-on. When they went down to the
train in the streetcars every car load of soldiers
shook hands with the driver of the car much to his
embarrassment. Their spokesman, the load of
twenty or thirty soldiers having formed about
the car in a circle, invited the bewildered driver
to New York and tendered, in a feeling speech,
the freedom of the city to the car driver when
he should come. This was done with every car
as it deposited its load at Sixth stree. The
speech being ended the chorus followed:
“One, two, three,
First in war
First in peace and
First in the hearts of his countrymen."
Then came a break-down of five steps. The
effect was tremendous. Coming up the river
from Mount Vernon ther organized a ballet,
rolling up their white pants about a foot and
giving an exhibition of the art that would put
the Kiralfys in a fit of envy.
A writer in the DeKalb Chronicle went up
Stone Mountain on a picnic. It must have
been a charming affair. He enthusiastically
tells of the view, how the scenery was enchant

miles, thickly dotted with farms opened plainly
to view. Atlanta was plainly seen, likewise
several other towns. When the atmosnhere is
clear the mountains of North Georgia are seen
distinctly; Kennesaw and Sweat Mountains, in
Cobb county; Pine Log Range, in Bartow
county; Sharp mountain and its range, includ
ing Grassy Knob, stretching through Pickens
and Gilmer counties, besides other mountains
in the distance. Stone Mountain used to be a
place of more attractiveness than at present.

Important Announcement to the
The “Baltimore Syndicate" takes this means
of informing the public that it has decided in
order to meet the wishes of a considerable num
ber of persons who hav? heretofore negotiated
with the company for the purchase tof homes, to
modify the terms of payment so as to bring the
purchase of its elegant homes within the reach
of a larger number of the people than the terms
heretofore established permitted.
To this end it now announces that it will sell
any of its homes upon the cash payment of SSOO
and permit the balance of the purchase money
to be paid in monthly instalments.
THE BALTIMORE PLACE HOUSES.
These elegant residences need not be de
scribed in detail. They are so generally well
known that to enter into a description of their
plan, with the innumerable comforts incident to
their construction, their health fulness, compac
tion of arrangement, their high temperature in
winter and low temperature in summer; the
completeness of their sanitary arrangements
and the dozen and one features which can
alone be appreciated by practical use, to
describe which in detail would
occupy more space than is necessary or the
limits of this communication will permit. It is
sufficient to say here that Nos. 9, 11, 13,15, 17
and 19 of the block are for sale. Either of
these can be purchased for $3,500 subject to a
ground seat of sllO redeemable at any time
within a 1000 years. The ground rent system
is universal in the North, is the secret of almost
every merchant and mechanic owning his
home, without which this ownership might be
impossible. We prefer to sell in fee. Every
purchaser thus far has purchased subject to a
ground rent. The fact that he can carry a re
deemable ground rent at so low a rate of inter
est as 5 per cent, which is all he pays, is the se
cret why every one thus far has purchased sub
ject to a ground rent. At all events the compa
ny will sell either in fee orotherwisejustasthe
purchaser may desire. Now a few words about
the business part of the transaction. The com
pany will sell any of the houses above mentioned
for $3,500, subject to a ground rent of sllO per
annum. It will take SSOO cash, and will allow
the remaing $3,000 to be paid in monthly instal
ments of S4O, with six per cent interest on the
deferred payments, interest ceasing on each
payment as made. It will take, say, seventy
two months, or just six years to pay off the bal
ance of purchase money at S4O per month. Now
let us see what the total annual charges are:
Twelve monthly payments *4BO
One year’s ground rent 110
“ average interest 90
“ tax 72
“ Insurance 5
Total for one year*7s7
It will be observed that every charge of every
kind is included in the above.
Now let us see for a moment what the actual
strain is on the purchaser, and that after all is
the tiue and proper test which one must apply
to himself in testing his or her ability to pur
chase. We have seen that the total annual
charges of every kind and character aggregate
per annum $757, or $63 per month. Now
the purchaser during the time that he is
making these payments and securing his invest
ment is at the same time securing its fruits, for
he is Occupying the house and thus saving the
rent that he would otherwise pay. Now put
ting the rental value of these houses at $45 per
month (and they are generally conceded to be
worth SSO) he ought, injustice to his purchase,
deduct the rental value from the total annual
charges, for until he owns his home, the rental
value should be deducted.
The calculation would accordingly stand
Total annual charge* 757 00
Annual (rental value 540 00
Annual attain on purchaser 317 00
It will thus be seen that the annual strain on
the resources of the purchaser are just $217
or SIB.OO per month. In other
words, the purchaser of one of these houses
as compared to a tenant paying $45 per month
rent is just SIB.OB per month more to
pay than the tenant, and in consideration of
said payment the purchaser gets back every
month S4O clean and clear as a credit on bis bal
ance as purchase money.
He pays SIB.OB a month more, and at the end of
six years has bis home, whereas the tenant, as
above illustrated, has just exactly seventy-two
rent receipts, and liable tn be kicked out if he
should fail to pay the seventy-third. Let us
now go a step farther and
FIND OUT WHAT THE HOUSE ACTUALLY COSTS
His first payment was* 500
Six years, *217 each 1,302
These figures may seem remarkable and their
accuracy may perhaps be doubted by some. It
is sufficient to say in reply, that the company is
prepared to. guarantee their correctness.
It will thus be seen, that the people of Atlan
ta have here presented an opportunity of which
it may truly be said is unprecedented in any
city in this country. There is no clap trap
about this announcement. The figures are
given and their accuracy guaranteed by a com
pany of responsibility.
Bring your architect with you and let him aid
you in making an inspection of the property
and ask him for an honest dispassionate judg
ment. Ask him what it would cost you to du
plicate the house, in hard cash. And after you
have asked him these questions and have re
ceived a satisfactory answer, then go and ask
snch well known and respected citizens
as Dr. Brockett, Colonel Goldsmith,
A. }’. Tripod. Col. Avery, I. C Bandmann,
Capt. Rust, all of whom have lived in the res
pective houses which they have purchased,
from two to eleven months, and ask them and
their wives and their visiting relatives and
triends whether they are delighted with their
purchases. The writer is sure that there is not
one but what is charmed with his purchase.
Ask them what temperature they experienced
last summer, and they will be apt to tell
you that their homes were charmingly cool. Ask
them whether they suffered from the severe
cold of the past winter, and they will tell you
that, if anything, their houses were at times too
warm. In brief, ask them, if you choose,
whether you ought to buy or not, and act accord
SPRING STREET OR “PARK PLACE” HOUSES.
Th. re are six houses left for sale on Spring

5 to Wm. A. Wimbish; No. 7 to Janies A.
Gray; No. 13 to Mrs. Fannie McCandless. Nos.
3, 11, 15, 17 and 10 are still for sale. These
houses will be sold for $2,350, ground rent S9O,

No one who has seen these homes will hesitate
to admit that they are cheap at S3O per month
Assuming this to be true the actual cost of
the house would be ak follows:
Total annual chargess 64.3 75
Annual reu al value 360.00
Annua', strain ... * 183.75
As it will take a little less than 62 months to
pay off the balence of purchase money, the ac
count will stand like this:
(.’ash payment . * 500.00
*183.73 per year lor 5 years and 2 months.... *49.37
Total cost ot house *1,449.37
These figures must be their own demonstra
tion. It would be downright supererogation to
attempt to give them additional fore, by fur
ther argument or illustration.
The man who can’t, after due reflection, un
derstand their force and potency ought not to
bother his brain about buying a home, but
ought to continue as a tenant.
The company hopes after having mads these conces
sions, tobe aldo to at once dispose ot its remaining
houses. In two or thrve years they w ill doubtless be
worth hall again as much. Every indication shows that
these house- are situated iu the coming residence sec
tion ot the city. No portion of the city has such a
beautiful prospect before it. '.V het her there be any ad
vance or not, there will surely be no retrogression. So
that a purchaser not only secures a home tor his family
tn away that can hardly strain bis resources, but bis
has in addition an incentive to save, conpled with the
tact that bets stx-uring ar. investment which affords him
every reasonable expectation that after it is otee paid
for it will be worth more than the original purchase
money, to say nothing ot the years of rent that he has
saved to himself and family. Persons desiring to nego

The recent retirement of Mr. C. W. Hancock
from the Sumter Republican revives the ques
tion as to who is now the senior of the fourth
estate in Georgia. The venerable and worthy
senior of the Madisonian, Dr. J. C. Blackburn,
who is by no means a juvenile (after mentioning
Mr. Martin of the Rome Courier and Mr. Burke
of the Wesleyan Christian Advocate) as among
the aged and illustrious knights of tbe pen and
scissors, names Mr. Joshua Knowles, who now
assists in conducting the Sunday department
of the Georgia Home Journal, as the oldest edi
tors in Georgia, not in the South, though not
perhaps continuously so long associated with
journalism as Mr. Hancock.
We were shown the other day a substantially
bound volume of the Florida Watchman, pub
lished in Tallahassee, Fla., at th? opening of the
Seminole war. In its issue of November 10,
1836, we find within its large and handsomely
Stinted pages the following transcript of Mr.
inowles’ salutatory : ’
“We lay before the public this week the first
number of the Florida Watchman. In assuming
the management of a public journal we are not
altogether unapprised of the weight of responsi
bility we assume and the difficulties that lie
before us. We enter, however, cheerfully upon
our task and hope by an honest adherence to
sound principles and a faithful and dispassionate
advocate of important measures to render the
Watchman worthy the esteem and patronage of
an enlightened public; and we are ready to be
lieve from the liberal spirit already evinced
that our paper will be blest with a long and use
“We would here remark that the Watchman
belongs to no political party or’eligious denom
ination, but to the individual whose name ap
pears as editor. It is to be devoted to the in
terests of the people —a vehicle of general in
telligence; giving a faithful record of passing
events, and informing the public upon all sub
jects involving their interests.
“Its columns will always be open to such es
says and discussions as may interest and in
struct; of course reserving to ourselves the pre
rogative of publishing or withholding, as we
may think best. All controversial communica
tions on religious on religious topics will be in
In after years Mr. Knowles became the editor
and proprietor of the Rome Conner; then, upon
the retirement of Hon. Miller Grieve as editor
of the Southern Recorder, the central organ of
the Whig party in Georgia, he became copro
prielor and editor of that popular journal, and
subsequently of the Georgia Journal and Mes
senger, at ’Macon, which position he occupied
until near the close of the war. Last, though
not least, in 1872, he established the Georgia
Home Journal iu Greenesboio, now owned and
managed by his son, Mr. W. Addison Knowles.
We must not omit to remind the reader, also,
that Mr. Knowles was editor of the “Educa
tional Repository and Family Monthly,” the
organ of the Southern Teachers’ Institute, and
issued in Atlanta under the auspices of a pub
lishing board, of which Rev, Dr. Means, of Ox
ford, was president, and Greene B. Haygood,
Esq., father of Rev. Dr. Atticus Haygood, was
secretary and treasurer. This periodical had a
gifted corps of contributors, and during its
brief existence made a fine reputation at home
and abroad —but, like many other good things,
it perished in the first year of the late war.
Mr. Knowfes was chief secretary of the con
vention which formed the first Constitution of
Florida, in 1838-9, also a member of the legisla
ture of 1842.
It is notable that the same sentiments and
rule of editorial conduct enunciated by Mr.
Knowles in the first number of tbe Florida
Watchman, half a century ag >, should be the
guiding star of the pet of his son, which, by a
pleasant coincidence has for its motto —“Devo-
ted to the general welfare of the people.”

a few on my forehead, and they are nearly
out of sight, my ears are entirely well, my
appetite is splendid and 1 have gained
five pounds in weight. I feel so perfectly
well that I know in a short time I will be
soundly cured. Frank E. Keefe,

Watkinsville, February 13, 1886. —
Gentlemen ; It is due vou to say that I
think I am entirely well of eczema after
having taken Swift’s Specific. I have
been troubled with it very little in my
face since last spring. At the Iteginning
of cold weather last fall it made a slight
appearance, but went awav and has never
returned. S. S. S. no doubt broke it up,
at least it put my system in good, condi
tion, and I got well.’ It also benefited my
wife greatly in case of sick headache, and
made a perfect cure of a breaking out on
my little three-year-old daughter last
summer. James N . M. Morris.

Nearly half the time allowed by law to make State

fourth ‘ the taxpayers have done so. Very few mer
chants and business men have gijren in: hope they will
do so during this month, and avoid the rush and crowd
which is bound to exist if they nearly all wait until just
before the books close. Respectfully.
