His second wife was Mrs. Erwin, a sister of Hon. Howell Cobb. One of his daughters married (Jen. Albert Sid ney Johnson of Confederate fame. Atlanta in his death has lost a worthy citizen and noble gentleman. Judge Daniel Pittman dropped dead on Whitehall street Atlanta, on the 23rd inst., while in conversation with Albert Cox and ex-Mayor John B. Goodwin. The cause was the rup ture of a blood vessel on the brain. Daniel Pittman was the Ordinary of Fulton county for sixteen years. He married a. daughter of the late John Neal, of that city.

Lombard, the foundry and iron king, notifies his patrons and the public that high water does not stop his foundry and machine shops, as he has put in an immense engine to run his works -while the riv er is up. Orders may, therefore, be sent right along, and they will receive the customary careful attention char acteristic of the clever men at Lom bard's establishment.—Evening News. A gentleman who arrived in this city this morning from Atlanta says he was very much surprised at the strength of Major Bacon in that place. A large Bacon organization had been completed among the members of whom were some of the leading and wealthiest ■ men in Fulton county. Gen. Gordon will find it no easy mat ter to carry even Fulton. Of course the Constitution ridicules this idea and claims everything for Gordon.— Augusta News. C. Z. McCord, Esq.—In our ab sence from Augusta we have seen various matters in the Augusta pa pers of which we would have been pleased to have made notice. Among them is the announcement of the can didacy of Mr. McCord to represent Richmond county in the Legislature. Mr. McCord has been a close student of law, political science, the needs of the people, and every interest affect ing their prosperity. His mental re sources, inherent and acquired, aided by sound judgment, self possession, forcible logic, eloquence, and impres sive power of elucidation, eminently qualify him to represent the people of Richmond and the whole state use fully in the legislature. The Committee on Evolution have reported substantially that the. Pres byterian Church accepts the facts of Creation just as stated in the Book of Genesis, and*believes : that the body of-man is * )not * derived from ani mal ’ .ancestry* but from the dust of the ground. This confirms the doc trine the CoruGegskm of Faith. kfrs? Caroline Thompson, widow of iColonel.W. T.- Thompson** founder of tint Savannah Morning News, wliile in her dressing-room last Tuesday super intending some matters, suddenly sank to the lloor in a raint. She was conveyed to her apartment and died itihalf an hour. She was Miss Corrie, Augusta, and was sixty-one years of age.* She leaves a daughter and three sons. Pensions.—The everlasting Pen sion bills occupied much of the at tention of the Senate on the 21st. as they do in both Houses on many days during every session. From 50 to 00 thousand cases come up every year. Untold millions will yet be appropri ated for this purpose, the South bear ing its proportion without getting a cent. The Mexican war pension bill would yield something to the South ern men but that bill finds no show- in Congress. It may pass after the soldiers and their families are all dead. Gustavus J. Orr, State School Commissioner, will hold one Peabody Institute only this year. The site will be Atlanta. It will begin Monday, the 2d day of August, and will con tinue in session four weeks. As last year, provision will be made for in struction not only in the ordinary common school branches of our State, but in the High School branches. No pains or expense will be spared to make the work instructive as well as entertaining. Teachers of our com mon schools, teachers of our private high schools. County School Commis sioners and’City Superintendents are all invited. Instruction will be free. Messrs. Daly & Armstrong.—To morrow Daly & Armstrong will offer 25,000 yards calico, lawns and corded piques at 3c per yard. Ten thousand yards medicis and Torchon laces at 10c and 12ic. They invite every one looking for bargains to call early.— Augusta Chronicle 23rd. We know of no dry goods firm in the State that can exceed that of Messrs. Daly & Armstrong for either the beauty, excellence, or cheapness, of their goods. The people of Augusta recognize the high character of the firm and the superlative merit of their goods. Our friends in the country, and at a distance, will do well to call on them. • * The Home Rule Debate. der the threat of an House had concur- iui^endments appro- tbe foreign mail tic administration came into pow#r bud put the ban of its condemnation op the proposition. Policy of the birlmihiatration on this subject could hot mistaken, and -when the iTttited States Senate in violation of its rules, in violation of the principle that general legislation could not be placed on the appro priation bills, sought to force this proposition upon the Adminis tration, there- was audacity and boldness exhibited that needed to be met with courage. The issue was plain and clear <hit; and for one he was willing as a Democrat to take the responsibility for his action. Mr. Burrows 1 amendment was rejected by 85 to 142, and He witfe’s rejected by 82 to 139. Tl}e amendment offered by Mr. Taylor, of Ttulnessee, and Mr. Dougherty^. o/ ; Florida, was rejected without division.. Tbe Senate ainend- in without ommittee its action to the House. The recohimen dations of ihe committee were all agreed to without division with the exception of the foreign mail service amendment., which Whs non-concur- redin by a vote of—yeas 178. nays 80. The announcement of the result was received with a round of applause from the Democratic side. The bill and anendinents will now be sent to the Senate and then go to the Confer ence Committee. Our representative in Congress, Mr. Blount, (the watchful chairman of the committee on post offices and post roads,) net only stands at the head of the list with Morrison, Randall and Holman as a democratic leader, but he has by his superb conduct of the case, united the democratic party in Congress as it has not been before. Not only Georgia, but the South may well be proud of the able and faithful services of the representative of the Sixth District. The Old and the New Way. inent was ^ion-concurred division, and the committee reported Hon, H. H. Carlton’s Candidacy. We do not care to occupy much space in alluding to the Home Rule question now before Parliament. There are a goodly number of new members who have been somewhat frightened by the blood and thunder speeches of Saulsbury, Chamberlain, and some others, who have presented to them a prospect of disunion and insurrection in Ulster. Mr. Gladstone will satisfy them after a while that tliese pictures are worked up to sus tain their ambitious aspirations for place and power. Gladstone’s defeat is not yet. If his policy is defeated when the vote is taken in Parliament, sometime in the summer, the dissolu tion of that body will be followed by a direct appeal to the people. Should the people decide against Home Rule, that will be the end of the struggle for the present, and Mr. Gladstone will retire from public life. The struggle for home rule will not cease, however, but continue with increas ing zeal. Its adoption is only a mat ter of time. The unconquerable spir it of freedom is spreading in the Eng lish Isles and the Government will come to the terms of the Irish as a measure of safety. Talk and Practice. Mr. Randall in his letter on the 18th to the Augusta Chronicle says: On Friday last, Hon. Win. D. Kelley taunted the Democrats with once sym pathizing Southward, where negroes were whipped. That night a negro approached him at the aristocratic Riggs House, where he boards, ap pealing to the friend of humanity and brother of the whole human race for some little place under Government. Mr. Kelley resented the colored man’s importunities, and some of his loyal Republican friends kicked the poor darkey out of that exclusive sanctuary. No Southern man would have been guilty of such an outrage, so soon too afterprofessing such love for the ne gro. My experience of Northern peo ple is that, as a rule, they have no use for negroes except as political dupes and tools. Tin; Athens Banner Watchman, of the 22nd contains a letter from Dr. Carlton addressed to the editor, Hon. T. L. Gantt, in which he says: “Having been earnestly entreated by yourself an 1 quite a number other friends im < , as wei^.as other counties of this, the 3th congressional district, to become a candidate before the district convention for nomina tion to the 50th congress, and having promised to decide the matter at as early day as possible, 1 now beg leave to make known my decision through the columns of your most valuable and widely circulated paper.” He then goes on to say in substance that he feels it to be his duty to yield to the wishes of his friends, and form ally announces himself a candidate for Congress in the 8th congressional district. He refers in very compli mentary terms to the present incum bent, Hon. Seaborn Reese. He makes no war on Mr. Reese, but thinks “Time about is fair play.” Dr. Carl ton “Respectfully suggests that the counties defer selecting delegates to the convention as long as possible, as Mr. Reese is absent at his post of duty and I certainly do not desire to take any advantage of his absence, but would greatly prefer to canvass tlie district with him.” Dr. Carlton is a distinguished mem ber of the Democratic party as our readers all know, and says in sub stance, he will cordially support Mr. Reese if the majority of the Demo-' crats shall prefer his election. Both are high toned honorable men, and the Democrats will be well represent ed by either. Let all democrats bow cheerfully to the decision of the ma jority. The Providence Journal tells how a life was saved as follows: “A singu lar affair occurred in one of the pleas antest homes in the suburbs of our city on Friday, the relation of which may not only be of some interest, but also of some use to the reader. A few days ago the family physician visited the game residence, and in the course of conversation mentioned that while at tending a sick child the child had sud denly began to suffocate, owing to a quantity of mucus getting into its windpipe, and he had turned the child upside down in order to relieve it. This story passed almost unnoticed except by the sister of the lady of the house. On Friday the family, consis ting of the husband, wife and wife’s sister, w r ere at the table eating. Sud denly the wife began to show signs of suffocation. Her husband resorted to the familiar remedy of patting her smartly on the back, but it was una vailing. She could not speak. Her face became of a purple hue, and she was evidently at the point of death. At this moment her sister, r’emember-* ing the doctor's story, seized her by the ankles. The husband caught the idea instantly, and the lady was soon m an inverted position whereupon she immediately coughed up the food which had nearly caused lier death. The husband blesses himself for the story which tlie doctor so casually told, without any thought that it might help to save a life.” Mr. Editor: Among many “wise saws and mod ern instances,” I propose to scan a few briefly, more for suggestion and thought than for elaboration and discussion. Modern scientists and Medical gentlemen have very recent ly announced in the press and journ als devoted to their profession, that it is not healthful for one to drink coffee or tea while eating a meal. How then do you account for the lon gevity and unimpaired health, vigor and endurance of our grand-fathers, grand-mothers, and their mothers and fathers, who lived in the early part of this and the closing decades of the last century? Hunt up the old menand wo men now living, between the ages of seventy and one hundred, and point to a single one who ever before heard of or followed this “modern instance” of the speculative scientists and health guardians. They drank their coffee or tea and eat bread and meat all their lives at the same meal, and never felt any serious or even unpleas ant after pains on that account. In this, as in many other purely hygienic method,s the old way is the best. Again. Fifty or sixty years ago, our fathers and mothers cooked their vic tuals in iron vessels principally, many using iron pots to boil coffee in. There w r as little or no paralysis,_ dys pepsia, rheumatism, Bright’s disease or neuralgia in those days. Fevers were the most common diseases then, and they were caused liy clearing up land or creek and swamp malaria. These modern compound conglomer ations o.f metals in the composition of the cooking apparatus of this day is the source of scores of new diseases that our dead fathers and mothers never heard of when they were boys and girls and men and women. Our soldier boys, in the late war, who, when they abandoned tent and close comutpUnion, eat bread and meat cook ed in iron vessels or the ashes, and drank hot coffee while snatching a bite as the army was about to move, were healthy and hardy, enduring and as free from bodily ailment as any men in the world. '“Throw physic to the dogs,” and take to out dopr exer cise and sunlight, and fresh air, and eat wholesome food—how you like it, and when you are hungry, and let the scientists and health-keepers stir their crucibles and publish their won derful discoveries to the world as much as they please, but stick to the old way, it is the best, for the “tree is known by its fruit.” J. H. N. May 26th, 1830. Mr. Cox Visits The Sultan. The Technogical School. Chairman N. E. Harris, of the Technological commission has sent out c rculars in which he announces the readiness of the commission to receive proposals from all points in the State desiringThe location of the school and closes his circular as follows: • ^ earnes t wish of the commis sion that every commnity desirous of securing the location should have the fullest opportunity to he heard on the merits of any propoosition that such a community may make in accor dance with the act, so that no tice mav be done to any one. Permit me to say that in the ion of the most thoughtful the country there is no which would tend so mud late tlie growth of a communitv, call out the energies of its people, and develop its resources, as would the location of a school in its midst like the one in question. Tt is intended to educate mechanical talent, dignify 1 - bor, and lit tlie students for work in any of the great industries of tlie coun try. All communications referring to the subject of location, should be address ed to E. R. Hodgson, Esq., Secretary, Athens, Ga. Very respectfully, N. E. Harris, Chairman.

Constantinople, May 10.—United States Minister Cox to-day had a three hours’ interview with the Sultan. The American Minister presented to liis Majesty gifts sent by President Cleveland, consisting of 1,000 views^ of scenery in different parts of the Uni ted States, portraits of celebrated and typical Indians, copies of the last census reports, &c. The Sultan was well pleased with the presents amd re quested Mr. Cox to thank President Cleveland for the “unique and valua ble gifts.” His Majesty said he had recently ordered the taking of a Tur kish census and asked Mr. Cox to co operate in the work by giving the benefit of his American experience. This he promised to do, provided his his health, his duties, and his Govern ment permitted him. The Sultan ex pressed himself as greatly interested in the progress of America and or dered that Mr. Cox be shown his pri vate grounds and gardens. The Sul tan will give a banquet to Mr. and Mrs Cox on the 26th inst. Gordon Cummings, wliil in Norway, saw a villag which he 'thus describes : “About fifty persons were assem bled all in holiday costume—the wo men in bright colored petticoats and bodices with beautifully white chem isettes. They were a very pleasant- looking group—the men strong well knit fellows, but all alike fair-skinned, with flaxen hair and kind blue eyes. The bride was a demure young wo man, somewhat overweighted with necklaces and bracelets, which we understood to be heirlooms, but more especially by an immense gilt crown running up in tall points to a height of about eight inches, and studded with many colored crystals. It is a most gorgeous head-dress, and it be longed to the village. Every village issupposedto have one, which is hired fertile occasion by the parents of the bride. All the men sat ou one side and tie women on the other, according to th* usual customs. The parson whos garb is a black gown, with a ver\ large white fluted collar encircling liis throat like a Queen Elizabeth rut! performed the simple service, hi which a wedding-ring, shaped like a double heart, did duty in the place of our plain circlet. There was one feature in the cere mony which we noted with especial interest, therein recognizing a linger ing trace of pre-Christian days. Tlie pulpit stands in the centre of a large Chancel, and, at a pause in the ser vice, all the wedding party walked thrice round it in side-wise procession —a pretty survival of old Norse pa ganism.

Injuries by Floods.—The losses by floods, on the Savannah river, have seldom been exceeded in former years. The crops on both the Geor gia and Carolina side have been ut terly destroyed, and the only chance for the planters is to begin and plant anew, as soon as the ground will ad mit of it after the waters subside. The temporary desolation is complete. But such men as Col. Campbell and Mr. Warren, whose places are near Augusta, who have experienced such disaster in the past, possess the spirit and energy to proceed anew and with good seasons, from this time forward, will make all possible amends for the ravages of the raging waters. Much harm seems to have been done by high water in the interio.r of Carolina not only to the crops, but also to the railroads and bridges. Wheeling. W. Va., May 19.— A ter rible murder and suicide occurred in Lincoln county, this State, Monday night. Mrs. Margaret Donan, a wid ow, became insane from religious fa naticism and imagined that she had been called on by the Lord to sacri fice the lives of herself and her three children to the Divine wrath. Early in the afternoon sbe threw herself upon her knees and spent several hours in wild ravings. She then arose, and arming herself with a large, sharp carving knife, made her way to a room occupied by her three daugh ters, aged twelve, ten and eight years, cut the throat of each child, and plunged the blade into her own heart. The bodies were discovered yesterday by neighbors, who state that the room was so bespattered with blood as to bear strong resemblance to a slaughter house. The juice of a red onion is a per fect antidote for the sting of bees, wasps, hornets, etc. A minority committee on the man ner of electing the President has sub mitted that in the opinion of the House of Representatives the time lias come when the Legislatures of the several States should apply for a con vention to amend the Constitution. How Dio Lewis Wished to be Buried.—Dr. Dio Lewis gave the following directions in regard to the disposition of his remains: “Although I am adverse to the somewhat un pleasant notoriety which as yet cre mation involves, my very strong con viction is that it is the right disposi tion of the dead. I leave directions that my body s*hall be cremated, and the ashes shall not be put in an urn, but in the earth, over which my wife may lovingly plant forget-me-nots. 1 direct also, with my dear wife's as sent, that all funeral parade and ex pense shall be avoided and that my remains be placed in a pine-casket for removal to the crematory. 1 de sire also that no flowers may be sent by my friends.” The incineration of the remains took place on Monday.
