UNION & RECORDER.
ODR ADGUSTA LETTER.
Augu sta, Ga., Slay 21st, 1880.
Editors Union Recorder:
The joint discussion between Maj.
Hacon and Gen. Gordon at the Opera
House last Wednesday night is still
the theme of conversation in Augusta.
The scene reminded one of the excit
ing times before the war. The house
was crowded—densely packed in fact
—even standing room being in de
mand. Many ladies graced the occa
sion, and even joined in the applause
for their respective favorites. Gen.
Gordon was introduced in becoming
manner by Col. Charles C. Jones, and
Maj. Bacon was presented to the au
dience by Georgia’s favorite son, Kon.
J. C. C. Black, in his most impressive
and eloquent style. When Gordon
-arose it was evident that the vast ma
jority of the audience was present
not to endorse his candidacy, but to
show in no unmistakable way their
disapproval of it. Gen. Gordon well
knew this fact; he felt it, and it vexed
him. At times he almost lost his tem
per, and plainly showed that he was
not himself. His speech was simply a
re-hash of his former efforts, at Eaton-
Con, Sparta, and other places.
When Major Bacon faced the audi
ence the vast crowd sent up one long,
loud, and swelling yell of delight. He
knew r that he was in the house of his
friends, and this knowledge seemed to
inspire him. He made a telling
speech, and while returning the com-
pl iments paid him by Gen. Gordon,
be devoted most of his speech to ques
tions of State policy. It was arrang
ed that Gen. Gordon should follow
Maj. Bacon, in a concluding speech
of llfteen minutes, but when he arose
the second time calls for Bacon were
heard all over the house, and confu
sion reigned supreme, until Mr. Black
quieted the crowd, and begged them
Co give the General a respectful and
courteous hearing. Notwithstanding
the fact that the crow'd immediately
became quiet and orderly, Gen. Gor
don declined to speak a second time.
He saw how r much capital could be
made out of this interruption and was
not, slow to take advantage of it.
The people of Richmond county re
gret that a few' over zealous ones saw'
fit to interrupt the General, and have
condemned it through their public
journals. They all admire Gordon,
and are grateful to him for past ser
vices iu war and peace, but they are
convinced that he has been amply re
warded. and regret that he has enter

Candidates for the Legislature are
as thick as peas in a pod. Every day
or so brings out a fresh candidate.
There are already six, with more to
.bei&r from, viz : Calvin, Barrett, Mc
Cord. Fleming, Lamar, and Miller.
.Ur. Olivia is the only one of our Rep-
mtatives in the last House w'ho is
.seeking to be returned. He will be
‘fleeted, and will head the ticket.
Jlhere are hundreds in Richmond
county who are under lasting obliga
tions to Martin V. Calvin. Hundreds
snore recognize in him an honest up
right, intelligent, clear-headed and
practical legislator—and will send him
back to the House by a most flatter
ing vote. His record is before them,
mid they endorse Ins every act. They
aware also that his experience
whl be of great value to them in the
Coming next to Mr. Calvin will be
brilliant young lawyer, Charles
Z. McCord. He is very popular with
tii-c iwopie of Richmond County, and
■will without doubt, receive their sup
port. He has friends in every nook
And corner of the County, and they
Are. working for him like beavers.
He is one of the most brilliant as well
a.s practical young men in Georgia,
.and is well equipped to do valuable
service for his County and State.
The race for the third place on the
ticket will be among Barret, Fleming,
and Lamar. At this time they are al
most “neck and neck, ” with Miller
several yards behind.
Well, you can hear nothing but pol
itico talked of in Augusta, and there
is. ‘scarcely anything more to talk
■’Bioovit. Our people are disappointed
because the State Democratic Conven
tion will not honor our city with
xfceir presence during the summer.
; >f course Atlanta is the Capital, and
small boy. Augusta has a bad case
of politics and picnics.
The thunder storm last- Thursday
morning frightened many of our Peo
ple out of their early slumbers. A
clap of thunder sounded at 4. a. in.,
which seemed to shake the very foun
dations of the earth.
Mr. Thomas Bartlett, one of Augus
citizens. w T as buried thii
ta’s oldest citizens, was buried this
The city was shocked to learn of the
sudden death of Rev. Jas. Lvans, D.
D He was well known here, and
greatly beloved. What a fitting close
to such a long life of usefulness in the
Master’s cause! So much like a
translation to heaven.
It is raining again. The streets are
being flooded and the sewers flushed.
The river is very high, 32 feet, 2 in.,
and still rising slowly. Grave fears
are entertained of a freshet, and if the
rains continue in the up country the
whole of Augusta may be under water
before morning. Let us hope that
this horrible catastrophe may be

the Capital is Georgia.
The Knight Templars have been
lding their annual conclave in this
•..*jlv since Wednesday last. Phis Or-
• tv N composed of some of the finest
’took"u\g men in Georgia, and present
ed a magnificent appearance while
marching through our streets. Their
religious services were held at the
First Baptist Church on Wednesday
night and were of a most interesting
nature. A fine address was delivered
.by Hon. John S. Davidson, Grand
Master of the State, in his usually el
oquent style. The Harmonic Society
rendered the music. This is the first
time the Society has performed in
public. Yesterday the Knights en
joyed an old time Georgia barbecue at
fcha Schutzen Platz.
The General Assembly of the Pres
byterian church South, convened in
tiie 1st Presbyterian church yester
* day. The Assembly is composed of
commissioners or delegates, about 120t
being now present. The Presbyteri
an church boasts of her educated
ministry, and it is a fact that many
of the ablest theologians are to be
found in her ranks. The Assembly is
presided over by Rev. Dr. Bryson of
Alabama, a man of great culture and
deep piety, and a splendid parliamen
tarian. The question of evolution
will be brought up, and the assembly
will be asked to settle this vexed ques
tion. Dr. Woodrow' will not be on
trial directly, but the settlement of
this question, one wav or the other,
w ill have a bearing on liis case.
Picnics are all the rage with our
schools, and Sunday schools. Two
Sunday schools are in the woods to
day—the Baptist at Schultz’s Hill, S.
C., and the Christian at the Schutzen
Platz. The Houghton Institute will
picnic next Wednesday at the Hill.
Even base-ball is forgotten by the
Congressmen express themselves dif
ferently as to the results of the fall
elections. Many of the old members
have announced their intention to re
tire, and many of the new ones talk
indifferently about coming back. A
few of them say they would not make
an effort to return. They claim that
the position of a Representative is
not profitable, and that, for mere,_ ex
perience, a single term is sufficient.
A Western Member, w'ho w'ill net be
returned, said he fully appreciated
the honor of being in Congress, but
his business at home bad suffered so
much by this honor, that with all the
fascination of the beautiful city of
Washington, he did not enjoy living
in his trunk.
On the other hand there are many
members of the Forty-Ninth who de
sire above everything else to be mem
bers of the Fiftieth Congress. These
are on the anxious bench, nervously
hoping to secure the re-indorsement of
their constituents. Several members
have been made happy in this way
during the past few' days.
All week long the House Judiciary
Committee has been listening to ar
guments for and against additional
legislation in Utah. The longest of
these pleas was that of the distin
guished lawyer, Mr. Jeff Chandler.
He had special indignation to bestow
on those people who go to Utah, w'ho
do not live there, yet stir up strife
and inflame the country in order to
gain notoriety. Said he: -“Are w'e to
be driven by* a storm of prejudice?
Prejudice has darkened the history
of this country from the beginning?”
Miss Kate Field, who sat by and
heard all that w r as said upon the sub
ject, has made some caustic remarks in
ply. “According to this reasoning,”
said she, “because I do not have my
own throat cut, I must raise no cry
v'hen my neighbor's throat is cut.”
She says if this country is a nation,
what concerns one portion, concerns
all, and it is about time for the peo
ple to realize that when the Rocky
Mountains take poison, the Atlantic
seaboard must call the doctors. She
also thinks that people living outside
of Utah, w’ho ask for legislation to do
aw’ay with treason and polgamy in
that*Territory, may be more unselfish
in their opposition to the Mormon
church than the attorneys paid to de
A Congressman who was discussing
the labor trouble said; “1 make it a
business to vote for every labor bill
or resolution that comes up. It
makes- no difference to me what its
merits are. I cannot afford to do any
thing else.” He added that large
numbers of his constituents are mem
bers of labor organizations, and if he
took any other course he would have
to spend all of his time in explanation
that w ould not be satisfactory. He
thinks the most exasperating thing
in our politics is the tendency to mis
represent motives and actions and
that the only self protection is to be
in opposition to popular sentiment as
little as possible. He acknowledged
that it was not a self-respecting confes
sion, “but,” continued he, “you can
only protect yourself from dema
gogues by being a modified demagogue
Senator Vest, of Missouri, has been
expressing himself to the Senate in
regard to pensions. He thinks the
anxiety of both political parties and
the cupidity of pension claim agents
are responsible for so much pension
legislation. He does not believe it
is demanded by the volunteer soldiers
of the country. The astute and pur
chased intellect of claim agents, cor
morants and curbstone lawyers in
Washington was constantly contriving
new- devices for increasing pensions
by which to fill their ow n pockets.
He animadverted w ith severity on
the “nebulosity” of the estimates
made by different persons as to the
amount that the general Pension bill
would take from the treasury. He
asserted that the amount was beyond
the ken of mortal man.

The matter of Methodist re union be

into the public mind. There is a
growing spirit for the re-union. The
Methodist Conference at Richmond
has shown considerable desire to re

church. While there was opposition
to re-uniting, it was not on sectional
grounds, but for reasons of conven-
ience and policy. The issue is ripen
The destructive freshets hoav upon

Our last information is that the M.

section is not yet definitely settled.
It is also said that the city of Atlanta
will build a branch road from that
city to intersect the C. & M. road at
or near Key’s ferry in Jasper county,
this AA'ill give Atlanta an outlet to the
seaboard, as the C. & M. road will con

road from Monticello to Eatonton will
certainly be built by the C. & M.

is subscribed. This will give Eaton

bonds are deposited in New York by
the syndicate building that road, and
Mr. Machin is authorized to draw a-
gainst this deposit just as soon as he
