Horthward The City Grows.
No portion of thp city is growing so
rapidly as that on the North border
ing on Wayne and Jofferson, streets,
eonttguous to the Macon and Augus
ta, depot. The improvements made
there within two years past is some
thing phenomenal in the history of
of the city’s progress; and they are
solid, durable improvements, improve
ments in which a large amount of
money is invested, making a nucleus
around which in the next five years,
or even less, there will spring up a
little town by itself. The locality is
unexceptionable. Vacant lots embrac
ing eligible building sites, of from 50
to 200 acres, lie within a radius of one

Mr. Editor;—The public is becom
ing anxious to know what has become
of the bill introduced in the Senate
by Hon. Robt. Whitfield in the early
part of the present session, designed
to prohibit the sale of seed cotton in
Baldwin county, and which under the
inspiration of the vigorous speech of
that able and distinguished gentle-
mo n passed that august body of leg
islators with but little opposition.
Should this bill pass both Houses
and become a law, it would not only
be a gross and flagrant violation of
tlie constitutional rights of the citi
zen but it would subject the poorer
class of farmers to serious pecuniary
losses and inconveniences. It would
also drive oil to the country stores in

a grand one, and universally applaud

trade of our city, which under tlie be

Christ Church, which was finished
JOB years ago—built of brick brought
from England, and the ivey covering
it came from Kenilworth castle made
famous by Sir Waltei Scott. The
pews of Washington and Lee are
just as when those humble worship
ers last occupied them. Opposite to
each are marble tablets to their mem
ory. The large green sward surround
ing the Church, ornamented with
weeping willows, and other trees has in
this lovely spot a mound raised over
the remains of our Confederate dead.
The handsome urn in the centre is
kept bright with flowers and at times,
the entire mound is covered with
floral offerings of most exquisite de
The Masonic Lodge building Con
tains many precious relics, which
once belonged to Washington. The
candle-sticks are yet draped with the
crape which was plaoed upon them,
to be used at the funeral services.
The clock which was in his room, is
also there, of antique design, and
when the last moment of life fled,
its work ceased, as the physician cut
the cord, and forever more, like the
old clock in the song, "it was never
to go again.”
Mt. Vernon still attracts visitors as
in days of yore, when guests were Wel

was a grand camp—a strong force al
