OUR AUGUSTA LETTER.
Augusta, (jIa., April 30tli, 1880.
Editors Union Recorder:
Memorial Day dawned bright and
beautiful on Augusta. “From early
morn 'till close of day” men and wo
men, boys and girls were to be seen
wending their ways to the “City of
the dead,” each bearing some floral
tribute to place upon the grave of a
Confederate soldier. The Monument
on Broad St., and the Cenotaph on
fire one were each decorated with
lovely garlands—the work of woman's
bands. At 4 p. m., the procession
vvixs formed at the Bell Tower and
shortly .after commenced the line of
inarch through our principal streets
■to the Cemetery. The column was
commanded by Col. J. D. Clarke, a
•veteran of two wars. In line were
i he Clinch Rifles, Clarke Light Infant
ry, Academy Cadets, Confederate
Survivors, and Richmond Hussars
At the Cemetery a magnificent trib
ute was paid to the Lost Cause by Mr.
Pressley, in a most eloquent address.
This gentleman is one of our most
popular young lawyers.
While the Hussars were passing
> hrougli the main gate at the cemete
ry, the horse of Mr. W. H. Holman
reared up, and fell backward upon its
rider. At the time it was thought
that Mr. Holman was fatally injured,
but it is now ascertained that he w r as
only shocked by the fall.
.1 irst as the procession was nearing
the soldier’s section, a cyclonisli look
ing cloud made its appearance, while
gusts of wind blew the dust about in
blinding volumns. For a time the
mass of people were panic stricken,
and scattered in every direction. But
1 he cloud soon disappeared, the wind
soon ceased to blow, and order was
The only occurrence that seriously
marred the sacredness of the day was
the game of base ball played on the
grounds of the Augusta Association,
just opposite the cemetery. It is a
shame that our association should so
•far forget the memories of the past as
to allow a noisy game of base ball to
interrupt the solemn rites of a day so
dear to every Southern heart. A few
years ago public sentiment would not
Lave permitted it.
It is said that the address of Col
Ohs. C. Jobes Jr. was one of the ablest
ever delivered before the Confederate
survivors by this brilliant orator.
The trouble between the factory
Presidents and the Knights of Labor
- seems to he boiling down. May be
?j.fter all it was only “a tempest in a,
tea-pot,” or, may be it is the calm
that betokens the coming storm. We
shall know what it all means in a few
days. At any rate, the vast majority
of our citizens condemn the course
pursued by the Knights-especially the
and taken by the Master Workman,
case of violence just think of a
minister of the gospel being the re
cognized head of a mob. Let us hope,
Snrwever, that our city will not be-
•WMtie the scene of any such.
Caster was celebrated with great
rejoicing by our churches of all de-
'noiuiwations. At the First Baptist
A'l.e children of the Sunday School de
lighted the large audience at night
with a. service of *on«. The program
'consisted of solos, quartettes, and
singing by the choir. The solos of
Miss Grove Denning and Mrs. Os-
Robt. E. Pierce also declines to make
the race. This leaves the field clear
to Calvin, McCord, Fleming and La
mar. The last named is a member of
the law firm of Foster and Lamar,
and has recently been prevailed upon
by his friends to enter the race. Cal
vin will lead the ticket, McCord will
come next. The real fight will be be
tween Fleming and Lamar with chan
ces in favor of the former.

GEORGE I. SENE7.
Mr. George I. Seney, of New York
recently came to Georgia to attend
the wedding of a Georgia lassie, Miss
Nellie Stovall, bringing his family with
him. In Athens, in Macon, in Atlanta
he received such a greeting as must
have testified to him how warmly he
is esteemed in this State. Mr. Julius
L. Brown, with characteristic hospi
tality, entertained him in the Gate
To Mr. Seney is due much from
Georgians. The railroad links in

Macon to Atlanta and Atlanta to
Rome were the result of his enterprise.
The enlargemant of Wesleyan Female
College and the beautiful Seney-
Stovall chapel for the Lucy Cobb
Institute in Athens are fruits of his

merits in two of our leading cities are
the direct benefactions that this large

Papers Edited With Saws.
From the Alexandria (Va.)Gazette.
The printers of Norfolk are waging
war on what is technically termed
“patent matter”—that is, matter set
up in other places, stereotyped and
sold in blocks at a low rate to other
papers, the latter thereby saving the
cost of type setting, proof-reading
and clipping. Columns of this sort
of matter are furnished at about one-
tenth of what it would cost to set
them up, numerous papers use it, only
“setting up” two or three columns of
local news in their respective offices.
The compositors have long regarded
this new enterprise as fatal to their
interests, as publishers who use the
patent matter can dispense with about
three-fourths of their force. The Nor
folk Typographical Union have there
fore passed a law which provides that
newspapers employing Union hands
and using such plates shall pay the
compositors the same per thousand
ems for handling the plates as if they
were set up in the office.
A GOOD INVESTMENT.

vested Two Dollars in The Louisiana
State Lottery Drawing and Get Back

At the conclusion of the song ser
vice a masterly address was deliverd
by i)r. Lansing Burrows pastor of the
.church on , ‘The Triumph of the Sa-
tiavior." Dr. Burrows ranks with the
ablest of pulpit orators. His sermons
are perfect gems. His word paint
ings are sublime. In fact this word
expresses everything about this man
■of God. He is sublime in form—sub
lime in character—sublime in all his
utterances for Christ.
In a few weeks" time the General

great denomination will be in attend

benefit of their wisdom and eloquence

Our city is clamorous for the State

monopolized this body for years past,
and 1 see no reason why other cities
should not enjoy the presence of “the

all means let them come.

Hon. J. C. C. Black left last night
for Atlanta to deliver tne address at
the unveiling of the Hill monument.
Hon. C. A. Robbe has decided not to
be a candidate for the Legislature as
his private business demands liis en
tire attention. The people regret los
ing such an able and faitklul Repre
sentative, and will, no doubt in the
future call on him to serve them again.
Yesterday at noon there entered the
office of The Louisiana State Lottery
ompany, on St. Charles street, Mr.
Ernest Antz, of No. 321 Baronne
street, and Mr. Thomas McMahon,
grocer, at the corner of Baronne and
iTelicity streets. Xlit) o\)jCCt Of
visit, was to collect $15,000, or one-
fifth of the first capital prize of $75-
000 in the drawing of last Tuesday.
Mr. Antz presented a one-fifth ticket,
No. 25,244, and received from the com
pany a check on the New Orleans
National Bank for $15,000. AVhile
this check was being made out a rep
resentative of the Picayune had a
talk with the visitors. Their good
luck did not appear to excite them in
the least, and they spoke of the mat
ter in a sensible manner. Mr. Mc
Mahon has been keeping a grocery at
the corner of Baronne and Felicity
streets for 15 years or more. He has a
family to support, aud business has
been so dull lately that he was be
coming financially involved. “This
unexpected fortune,” he said, “will
set me on my feet again, and enable
me to straighteu out all my affairs
satisfactorily.” Mr. Antz is a well-
know and popular young man, an
engraver by trade, and an expert in
that line. He resides at No. 321 Bar
onne street, with his mother and
brother, Henry A. Antz. Last Mon
day Mr. Antz purchased for $1 the
one-fifth ticket, and Mr. McMahon
took part of the ticket. Both had
been in the habit, for years past, of
investing in The Louisiana State Lot
tery drawings. Mr. Antz had won
small prizes on several occasions, but
Mr. McMahon was not so lucky. He
is. however, fully satisfied with the
issue of the last drawing. These for
tunate men will make good use of
their money, and not fritter it away
in dissipation; as they are steady and
industrious citizens. Scarcely had
Messrs. Antz and McMahon with
drawn than in stepped Mr. John
Daste, a saloon-keeper, at the corner
of Clara and Calliope streets, who
held another fifth of the capital prize,
and was also paid the sum of $15,-
000.—New Orleans (La.) Picayune,

The closing sentence of R. W. Pat

burning the sacrificial fires of section

bones of the Confederate dead that

well as manure. Therefore aim to

of hauling wet, coarse manure on

It is a horse-killing, man-straining,

main strength and pure awkward

and do more harm than the manure
will do good.
