This journal was lonnded in 1855, but its publication win suspended in September 1861, on account ol the war. It was resumed in 1800, but owing to adverse circumstances grow log out of the war, it was suspended again in 1808. Under diflerent circumstances, and wilh brighter prospects of success, it now makes its appearance again. This nutnbt r contains a large amount of original matter liom the editor and contributors, upon interesting .subjects, besides the selections, comprising in uli six’y-four pages. We do not assume to lie competent criiics of a woik of this kind, but from glancing over its contents, we venture the opinion that it will take equal rank with any other journal in the South, de votee to this department of literature and science. The reputation of its editors and con tributors gives a guaranty ol this. We have no doubt that it wtil rereive a liberal share ol patronage Irom the proles-ion .

A husband two years af.er marriage met an old friend, who congratulated him upon his im proved personal appearance, but said, “It seems to me you have grown smaller.” “No wonder,” was the reply; “ever since I saw you I have been coming down handsome.” An aged conple in a New York village re proved a young man lor familiarities w ih their daughter, when be thus to them did reply: “Well, you needn’t be so bouncy about it; we’ve been married a year.” Small Items. “A Young 8hakertss” says in a note, that the assertion often made that the Shaker males hate the females, and vice vena, is not true; “ior we love each other be Jer than we can ex press.” : The ch' lera ha* broken out in 8t. Petersburg. Victor Hugo has given in his adhesion to the Paris Canununbts. The Independence Beige states that citizen Blancbet, who forms part of the new govern ment of Paris, was formerly a barber at Brus sels. The natives of the 8sndwich Islands eat tur tles, dolphins, flying-fishes, etc, raw, consider ing that the flavor is lost in cookmg, and the richest possible treat they can enjoy is to haul a flsh Irom the wa’er and literally eat it to death. The Rev Mr. Stewart mentions: “At 8iho Sibo the queen, Pauhui, was seated a fa lurk on the ground, with a large wooden tray in her lap. On this a monstrous cuttlefish had been placed, irtsh irom the sea. and in all its life and vigor. The qneen bad taken it up in both hands, and brought its body to her m< nth. aad by a single api hcation ot her teeth, the black juices and blood wi h which It was filled, gushed over her facx and neck, while the long sucking arms ol the fish in the convulsive paroxysms of the ope ia‘ion were wr,thing about her heal like the snaky hairs of a Medusa. At the beginning of the Franco German war two barbers in Temesvar, Hungary, agreed to commit suicide ii the French should be con quered by ihe Pms-ians. They were as good a, their word. At the new3 of the aurrender of Paris both blew their brains out, leaving a letter which ended with “Vive la France!” It is stated that Bret Harte ia under an en gagement, made belore leaving California, to write a play for the theaters, in which he will probably put upon the stage some of the ebar- ac’ers which his poems and stories have made famous. One evening, in a mixed company, Douglas Jerro d aDd some friends were piaving a game io test their knowledge of Shakespeare. Each person was to name an object, it mattered not wbat, to the guest next to him, and the latter, under pain ot a.iorfeit, was to give some quota tion from ihe poet to i.lustrate it. To Jerrold was given the word “ trtaimill,” and he hardly hesitated o moment before replying, in the we 1 known language ot Lear, u Down, thou climbing soi row I ” Negro Voting —Mr Clarence Logan, o’ Philadelphia, just returned Irom Savannah, hav ing observed toe election there, has made a statement that in one ward in that city several negroes weie suj plied by a wag wilh labels ol Oi star’s rat aud roach exterminator,” and vo’e 1 th< m as ballots.

There may sometimes be met in the streets of Portland a bright-eyed, rosy little woman, usually accompanied by two children, one a fair lit tie girl, aud the other an app’e-munching urchin. Nothing extraordinary about that; but then by hangs a tale. At the time ot the “ia’e UDleasauinuss” this little lady’s lover was a sol- lier, and was down with Phil, Sheridan in the Bhenaudoah, where he lost a leg. The lady’s lriends no ifled her that of course she would regard tbe engagement as cancelled. “I shall do nothing ot the kind” she replied. “Wbat marry a one-legged man ?” “Of course I’m going to 1 Why, bless your souls, il they’d shot James all away and saved the leg, I’d have mar ried that 1” ‘1 hanK Heaven, says a local paper, she was not reduced to that. James has a good coik-leg, a good situation, two nice babies, and one ot the truest and best little wives in Christ endom. A traderman who failed in Bangor, Ma ne, wrote over ihe front door : “Payment suspend ed lor thTty days.” A neighbor reading this, eaiil: “You have not dated tbe notice.” “Ho,” said he, 1 don’t intend to do so. It would run out it 1 dia.” The bodies of Generals Thomas and Lecomte, killed at Mouimartre, were placed in oak aDd lead c iffins and temporarily deposited in a vault it the old cemetery, Si. Vincent. Sixteen wounds were to be seen on tne breast, arms and head ot General Clemim Thomas and nine on the corpse oi General Lecomte. The bails, which have been preserved, were fired from ediassepots. The victims must have been shot at alter they had lallen. The watches and other valuables iouud on them have bean returned to their families. Ohe bail had cut the gold chain of General Thomas. In Louisviil -, on Monday last, two men were killed >>y a large rock lalliug ou them, two men wer- murdered, an editor committed suicide, a pain er was found dead in his Le i, aud two i ases of cowhiuing by women occurred—all ot which made up a programme ot honors un- qualcd in oue day any wheie else that we have v et heard of. Woinan’a Love. * A virtuous woman is the very embodiment and personification of love. The true begin ning and end ot all that is pure and worthy of womankind, is love. Love may be made to con stitute all woman’s happiness; but it the heavenly pa.-ston be perveited, it proves tne ource ol all her sorrows. Very beautiful indeed is pru ciple ot love in woman; it constitutes a roseate atmosphere “in which she lives, and moves, and has her being”—and it lorms a halo of cekstian purity to surround her. Its light shines in the glance ot her eyes—beams in the smile upon her lips—at.d makes the music of her softest tones; for the melody ot a woman’s voice is but a prolonged echo of the spirit oi love. Ii is imposs ble to think ot the beneficient yet un ibtrusive influence ot a virtuous woman, without experiencing a sense ot most exalted admiration. Behold her as the obedient daugh ter—how much she will tndure, through what triuis she will pass, and how goading must be come the parental tyranny ere she will allow her spirit to rebel against he authors of her being! Beholu her when lovag some object worthy oi her devotion—mark her unvarying constancy— the resolution uniting with tenderness in the na ture ol her affection —the tenacity with which she clings to him whom she knows to be de serving of her iove 1 Again, behold her as the wile jealously welcoming her husband home— leediug her spirit with the memory of his looks aud smites when he is absent—and with all tbe sulilimesi elements of an ever-enduring con stancy and iaith appealing to his soul 1 And, lastly, contemplate her as the mo'.her, pressing her new-born babe to her bosom—studying to trace in its little countenance the lineaments.oi its sire—and loudly making imagination con tinue ihe work in this respect beyoud the pciut where v<-r smiliiude has slopped. Yes; woman, wh*.n im ued with a pure aDd virtuous love, is au augtl-creature; and well may poets strike iheir lyres to sing her praise—well might the warriO'S ot old have dared deeds of high em- prize tor the meed ot her smile—well may ihe student trim his lamp to write essays upon her manifold good qualities! All th- se tributes and all this homage does she ties rve. Last at the cross and e»r iest at the grave ot our Saviour, she teaches to tne s ncere Christian some of the sweetest and honest morals ot his iaith; and (bus is the name oi woman h .llowed by re ligion likewise as well as sanctified by by love. Great is fashion. A New York “ society pa per” announces the marriage of a lawyer in that city, and says the young couple will give a series ot day receptions ai their residence, but owing to tbe recent death of the groom’s brother, no eVeniDg entertainment will be given.” Carried to Macon — The man who had the fight v illi *l,e police 'he other day. and gave h,s Da ui- as Durand, turned out to be the J.m Hay wood v. ho had escaped from the Macon jail. He was tarried, yesterday alternoon, by an offi cer to that city, where he will probably be tried tor the offense of larceny. We learn that.ii.is probable Mile Nilsson, accompanied by a fine troupe, will shortly visit our city. This will, indeed, be * rare treat to those ot our people who are fond of splendid operatic singing. A handsome private dwelling is in process of erection at the junction of Pryor and Fair streets.

The first of the fence around the City Hall is being put up to-day, it will be very neat and substantial. Strawberries are ottered for sale at various places in the city. As yet however the prices rule *o high that this delicious fruit is hardly within reach ot those who have not a decided superabundance of greenbacks. We are pleased to see that the Street Com mittee have taken bold ot Loyd street and are doing good service there. JE'ne indications are that the street will not ofifr be improved bn that the culvert in the ravine below will be ex- "ended. Wr learn that some parties in Atlanta are sending on their claims against the Government under the recent law of Congress, in respect to paying to Southern loyalists lor property dis- troyed or taken from them during the war by the United States military forces. The Depaty Marshal received a dispatch yesterday from the jailor at Macon, announcing that be would come up and lake charge of Jim Haygood alias William Durand. This Durand is the man who was bcated by the police. He was.it seems, an escaped prisoner from the Macon jaii tvhere he was confined under a charge of laiceny. Dr. A. C. Ford.—We notice that Dr. Ford, of the firm ot Ford & Campbell, Dentists, has removed his office to the opposite tide ol White hall street, where he is very handsomely fixed up. Every convenience for the prosecution of his professional duties has been secuied, and arranged with unexc< lied taste. The excavation lor the new buildings on Whitehall street progresses finely, and our peo ple may soon expect to see handsome stores take the place ol the old vacancy which has so long resounded with the crying of the auctioneer and the music ot the hand organ in tbe monkey show, and the fiddling ot p r ize candy sellers. The case ot the Statu vs. Founds, who was charged and convicted of the murdei of a mas named Harrison was reversed to-day by the Supreme Court, and a new trial was ordered. This case was argued last week by General Toombs and Judge Stephens as attorneys for Pounds, and by the Cleik ot the Supreme court tor the State, and the case was reversed on ac count of error in the charge ot the Court below The Telegraph & Messenger speass with re gret of the contemplated removal oi the Rev E. W. Warren from that city to Atlanta. It says that “his pastorate in Macon, and his whole professional find social life here have been fall of good fruits. Strong in the happiest result* upjn all interests aLd classes aud he will leave behind a substantial record and a hearty appreciation which will ever be a pleas ant and profitable memory.” Every intelligent builder who knows the value and importance of gc o l doors, sashes and blinds, well n ade, of good and ih iroughly sea soned stock ; but many are uninformed of the best place of purchase at the lowest prices. For the benefit ot such, we would refer to tne Messrs. Whitlock & Co., 254 & 256 Canal Street, New York, who have always on hand an ex tensive and well selected stock. Their new Circular and price list is sent lree, on applica tion. Undeb the heading Southern Independence, the Macon Telegraph and Messenger has a lengthy article on the Atlanta Steam Brewery, C. A. Goodyear, proprietor, which, setting forth as it does, another enterprise that is last placing Atlanta foremost among the cities ot the South. We quote the following: “That we of the South, especially the State of Georgia, are divinely la- vored to take care of ourselves, and throw ofl the dependence on the North, that has charac terised us in the past, has long been our firm conviction, etc. The article goes to show the large increase in the consumption of malt liquors during the last twenty ytars, a beverage which, as it aptly says, “is countenanced by the medical haternity, and moral in its effects,” and further shows that owing to the general belief that Ale and Porter could not be manufactured in our climate to stand the test of summer beat without spoiling. Agents ot Northern homes have enriched them selves by their commissions on sales, and cur country drained ot so much ready money. Mr. Goodyear has proved, beyond a doubt, by the best skill in the art ot brewing, that the climate of Atlanta is equal to any, and second to none, for the msnafactnre of these healthful and nutritions beverages, and for keeping qual ities and purity, his Southern malt liquors are superior io any ever offered in onr market. The Atlanta Steam Brewery is strictly a Southern institution, such is the enterprise of its proprie tor, that trees that were standing within a mile of the Kimball House are now made into bar rels, and in the cellars of hotels, stores, private and boarding houses now groan with the mighty strain otthe Irothmg ambrosia of hops and malt. Barley is being planted here lor him, aad a - ready his agents are known Irom the sea to the gnil, across tbe State of Alabama to Middle Tennessee. The Atlanta Steam Brewery is a credit to Southern enterprise, and we cong’atu- late Mr. Goodyear on tne brilliant success of his addition to the unparalled enterprise ot Atlanta. The Automatic Fire Alarm and Police Telegraph Apparatus.—We witnessed this morning come of the operations ol tbe Auto matic Fire Alarm and Police Telegraph Appa ratus, and were highly pleased with its work ings. The instruments are not costly and are placed in various parts of the city, say iu some ten or twelve districts, numbered from one up ward. Whenever a fire occurs, any persoh can go to the nearest apparatus and sound the alarm, which would strike in each district and at each engine house, the number of the fire district where the Fire Department would be needed, thus saving tbe time it would take to run eway off to an engine house. The ap inatiis can be so ai ranged as to strike the r> g_oar tire bells in the engine bouses with as great lorce as that now in use; besides, tbe U3e of the apparatus would prevent false alarms, for often when a lamp explodes or a chimney is burnt out, per sons unacquainted with the cause, would start ofl to give an alarm, when it is probable, that with an alarm apparatus just at hand, no un necessary haste would be made. Where there are wooden buildings to be saved from fire, the greatest need is dispatch, and has been lound extremely difficult to get the engines notmed and out in time te do more good than to pre vent the spread of the conflagration. This is especially tbe case when the buildings are dis- ’ ant from the main streets. Savannah has been one among the many places that have tried this apoaratus, and we learn that it has given satisfaction there.

London April 19.—Di-patches contused— there has been heavy fighting around Paris without any decisive results. It is said that the Nationals are greatlv dis couraged at their losses, and that the spirit and discipline of the Government troops are far from satisfactory. Washington, April 19.—The House refused to concur in the conference report on the Ku- Klux bill, and another committee was appointed Iu the contusion it is iaipossitile to ootain the exact features of either the Ku-Klux or defi ciency bill. Sherman’s amendments to the former seems to be the chief point of difference, aud it is reported that the Senate will recede irom it. Tnirty Republicans voted with the Democrats, defeating the conierence report on Ku-Klux. Both houses have taken a recess to await the action ol the new conference com mittee.

He pronounced ia lavor ot a minority representation as a cure for present evils ; that Ku-Klux streDgtbtDs the Rep ihlican party ; that in his future policy he would act without regard to party in making appointments. Pabis, April 19.—Terrible fighting around Paris on Tuesday. The conflict raged all day. Towards night the Nationals became panic- stricken, and flea precipitately towards the city, leaving dead and wounded thick in the roads. 1 he inhabitants of the city are leaving oy thou sands, and tbe wildest excitement prevails. A late London dispatch says that the insur gents are falling to pieces. Washington, April 20.—The House adopted the Ku-Klux bill by a strict party vote, but the dispatcher do not state in what shape— whethi r the Senate receded irom its amendments or not. Sherman said, not one offender will be con- victed-not one dollar’s damages will be obtained under it; the only virtue leu in the bill wa9 the employment of United Slates forces when nec essary. We infer Irom this that the iron clad oath and Sherman’s amendment for damages, were str.cken out. Paris, April 20.—The substance of the nows from Paris is that the fortunes of the insur gents are rapidly einking. Washington, April 20—Both Houses ad journed at 2 o’clock, but the Senate, by procla mation, is called to meet in extra session on the 10ih May.

Farnsworth charged Butler with embezzlement and perjury, and said he could prove tbe charges. Beck in de fence oi Mr. Davis impeached Butler’s truthiui- ness and charge. Quite a scene took place in which the Beast was badly worsted and ex pose! to ridicule and contempt.
