From Our Regular Correspondent. Nantucket, Mass , August 23rd, 1880. When one steps foot on this Island ho lit erally enters another world. It is totally unliko nny other spot on the American continent. The very first Inspiration of this highly-seasoned ocean air makes an other man of him. lie may have been heretofore insensible to atmospheric or psychologic changes, but Nantucket will Start the most obstinate nerves to tingling. Various roasons have been ascribed for this, prominent among them being the theory of its thorough isolation from land. There is nothing to absorb or dis turb the wonderful purity of tho ocean ozone. It Is fresh, endurlug and unsullied. It is an antidote to malaria, and tho system feels the blessed effeot immediately. Then Unsold sea girt town Is so differrent from any other town under the sun. • Its great roomy, old fashioned, picturesque houses, its atmosphere of antiquity, its fresh faced erect, youug-old men, who pan lift as heavy loads at seventy-live as when they were forty, its ruddy, agreoable healthy women communicate a feeling of comfort to the tired spirit which is impose! ble to aaalyze or describe. No inhabitant of Nantucket could ever be mistaken for one of the visitors. The last is usually haggard and hurried. The uativo Is slow and passive. He eloeps aud eats and as* simHates his food Is is said that codfish and cookies compose their diet but I am sure that this is an exaggeration. At auy rate, this is not tho case when the natives have company, for nowhere have I ever found more succulent or better cooked veg etables, fresher or more nicely prepared fish. The latter article of food Is some times very hard to obtain as "tho beating waves clarfh high,” 1 upon the Nantucket shores, and careful sailors will not risk their lives for "a mess of llah.’’ But blue fish arc plenty here ami most delicious. Sword llsh aro considered a groat delica cy also. The Islanders do not like to admit tho presence of fog. It is mist and smoke but by no means og. That word seems to set the native crazy. One ofd resident a cross between a son of Neptune and a tiller of the soil, informed me that the mist which had materialized so that It could be sliced or made Into Ush-balls was simply “steam escaping from the gulf stream.” This was the most unique explanation that I ever heard of auy thing lu any part of the coun try, and I have heard u good many fanciful and original ones. I was much amused and surprised to find this theory somewhat coroborated by Ilev. Dr. John Hall of New York, who told mo that the unusual warmth o! Nantucket winters and the soft ness and evenness of the atmosphere could be attributed to the Influence of the Gulf current, which was, so to speak, in the im mediate neighborhood. He also reminded •me of a fact which I had forgotten, that the life of Hon. Chus O'Connor had Usen, hi the opinion of his physicians, lengthened at least ten years t>\ taking up his residence at Nantucket. The house of this once emi nent lawyer is now occupied by a wealthy New Yorker, Tillinghast, by name. It Isa handsome, roomy modern villa, with noth ing wonderful about it except Its library and its beautiful situation. Mr- O'Uonor used to spend much of bis time in bis li brary, a wing at the South sl<J« or. the house, where ho was always safe from In trusion. The drivers of the numerous vehicles that convoy guests from one ipoint to an other in this historic and charming old town, seem to embody all tho recklessness to be found in the place. In fact, It Is the ouly opot on earth that 1 have ever vUlted where the horses climb trees to get out of the way of other teams. Of course tills statement will bo pooh-pooed by my read ers, but what would they have thought to have been driving along like iuad In a street only wide enough foe one car riage, to meet another rushing on at a similar rate, aud then in the midst of their astonishment and fright, to have Jehu pull his fiery steed upon Ms haunches, his fore legs frantically embracing the truuk of an oak tree, his grei twhlte head apparrently up among tho branches' I use tho word "apparently” with Inten tion. That is for tho literal soul, who will cry out “impossible," what a yarn." etc., etc., I do not say that tho horse’s head was among the branches, but appoared so. I am free to confess that I had rather seo a cat elfmb a tree than a horse- But there was no harm done, and when I had caught my breath and sottled my belongings—my umbrella must have made n dent In Jehu's back for which I was inwardly thankful— I ventured to remark that I should profor not to hunt birds' nost with a horse. The driver opened Ills wide New England jaws and laughed long and loud. ’’Good Lord, inarm” he said at last. "You Just ought to soe me sometimes. Nobody never takes my wheel off as long as there s door steps and fences to shin up on." "And trees i 1 " said I. "Yes maim, and trees," ho responded with another laugh that’mlght have been heard at Capo Cod. Well, I engaged this Jehu on the spot for all subsequent trips. I felt that bis skill had been thoroughly tested aud if I had escaped breaking my nock this time, my life was as good as insured. 1 once rode behind the great “Dexter, aud as It was a windy day I had to hold my hat on with both hands, but behind this Nantucket "hoss,” I was compelled to hold my hair on—and not false hair elthor. Miss Georgina Flagg tho very pretty woman who played so acceptably at Daly’s a few years ago, lives in one of tho oldest and most picturesque houses In tliisaucient aud most picturesque of villages. Tho "peace" of Nantucket for tho tired out ac tor, writer or artist, truly "passes under standing.” Tho poetic conditions necessa ry to tills peace aro all present, and the temperature and evenness of the climate, make it a very Eden. Tho oraze for the antique must beat its height, Every other store iu Nantucket is devoted to aucient furniture. It Is charg ed by some skeptics that much of this stuff Is Imported, and is really not antique; but In ail reputable places I found that the names of the original owners are given, asd tho families can be looked up with the greatest ease, Thh prices of these much sought for articles vary exceedingly. I wanted a pnlr of old brass andirons and tongs and shovel, but the prices lu two or three stores seeindd so exhorbltant that I finally gave up ull Idea of purchasing.— *- i3r • But at lost In looking for something else, I found exactly what I wanted at a most reasonable price. The steamers that, run between New Bedford and Nantucket are sea-worthy and comfortable, but I could not help wonder ing why, with so much travel they were not larger and finer. I thought of the Connec ticut tho magnificent new steamer, built by Providence A Stonlugton Steamboat Company for the Providence line of Boston amt ns Mrs. Partington once remarked, "(be comparison was odorous." Tim grand boats of the Inst two decades sink Into Insig nificance, when compared with this great white marine wonder, rising as she does upward of sixty feet above the water line, aud showing a length over all of 357 feet ami an extreme width over guards of 87 feet. Tho Impression made upon the minds of the passengers who board the “Connecti cut" Is one of delight and wonder that anything afloat could be so magnifi cent. After ascending to the deck, with Its grand height from lloor to dome of 30 feet, and with a view of the main saloon with its double tier cf hundreds of state looms, every one of which Is thoroughly ventila ted and lighted with electricity, the won der Is enhanced a thousand fold. The rooms are all marvels of elegance and com fort, and some of them, notably 118, is a boudoir lit for a princess. This apartment is as large as an ordinary bedroom. It bas an alcove and is furnished with a brass bod stead, bamboo chairs, lovely potlores opening upon a commodious bath room. There Is not a room from stem to stern that Is not exquisitely furnished, airy and do- Ughtful to the eye. The dining room Is as large as a first class hotel, and the charges not one whit higher than those of any good restaurant, while tho cuisine Is sans re- proche. Tho sail through tho sound around Point Judith just asdaydawns, and thenceun the Narragansett Bay to Providence, Is a de lightful and invigorating experience, and the round trip Is a vacation lu Itself. This is the best route to the White Mountains. Eleanor Kiiie. A Railroad in the Holy Land. The preliminary surveys of a rail road to run from Jaffa on the seacoast in Palestine to Jerusalem, and thence to Bethlehem, have just been com pleted. and u party of engineers have started from London to the Holy Land to lay out tho route. A com pany has already been formed to build the road, in which a number of English and French bankers are in terested. From all accounts it is a purely business enterprise without a trace of geutiiuent of religious fervor. The travel in the Holy Land of late years has been increasing steadily, and it i believed if first class railway accomodations were furnished the number of tourists who annually visit Jeruseldm from all parts of the earth would soou be trebled. Three Lucky People in Philadelphia. Ten thousand dollars in new, crisp hank notes from the Louisiana State Lottery were paid to three lucky peo ple. One of the lucky ones, Muie. J. P. Decoiuler, of No. 52 N. Thirteenth st. held one-fortieth of a ticket and got $5,000 in bank notes, and the oth er No. 02,311, was held jointly by John Kleiber, a blacksmith whose shop is at 1842 N.

The papers are getting off some good things on the effects of the Brown-Sequard Elixir in various ways, but they will have to give up to tho following fresh story from the Ark., Mulberry Times: A lady recently set a pot of cream in a spring near tho house .so that it would keep cool. During the night a frog fell into tho cream pot, and in his struggle*! to get out actually churned tho cream, so that when the lady visited tho spring next morning she found the frog sitting on a hall of butter, washing his feet in tho buttor-milk. Pains in tho small of tho back indicate a diseased oondltion of the Liver or Kid neys, which may bo easily removed by the use of Dr. J. II. McLoan's Liver and Kid ney Balm, *1.00 per bottle. FLEMING G. DU BIGN0N. THE PBE8IDENT OF THE BTATE SEN ATE OF GEORGIA And Ponible Candidate for Qovar- nor—Career of a Brilliant and Popular Young Man. From the Augusta Chronicle. During the memorable Colquitt convention in Atlanta nine years ago this month, si number of young men occupied seats on the floor and re mained throughout the contest, hold ing to the instructions of their county and maintaining their choice for gov ernor . fine of these delegates was Flem ing Urantlund duBiguon, who with Parish Furman, cast the two votes of Baldwin county for “the hero of Olus- toe.’’ They were a prominent and striking pair. Vigorous in body, ag gressive iu temperament, prominent anil intellectual, they were leaders in looal polities around Milledgeville. Even at that time bot,h had been judge of the countr court. Furman who was older than duBlgnoii, had been a member of the Constitutional convention of 1877, and the latter was making bis first appearanceJn state politics. His reputation as a graceful, polished and forcible speaker accompanied him there, for when the majority, or Colquitt forces looked around for an eloquent man to make their final appeal for hrarmony anil a nomination, they selected young “du- Bignon, of Baldwin.” I happened to be on hand reporting tho proceedings foi Tlie Chronicle, and roomed with these young men. I remember lying awake, between the mosquitoes and midnight, listening to duBiguon frame some sort of address for next day. He had only one night’s notice, aud I recall that the synopsis which I heard forming Itnelf in his uiind—aud which he would repeat to Parish Fur- mau--wuB full of fine points, and striking passages. Next day the proceedings took a different turn and the speech was not made, much to everybody’s disappointment, except duBiguon himself. That fall Fleming duBiguon went to tlie Legislature. It wus the year that Davenport Jackson, Warren. Mays and II. D. D. Twiggs were elect ed from Riohmotid. I remember a speech made by duBiguon in behalf of an appropriation fitting the “old capitol” up for the Middle Georgia Military anil Agricultural college. It was full of pathos and eloquence, short, ringing and decisive, for he got his appropriation and cuptlvated the House. He had the rare good sense not to strain his ready eloquence. He spoke but seldom; attentively looked to his committee work, and was mark ed as a rising member. At that time he was but 28, with short square fig ure, smooth face, strong classical fea tures, blue eyes and his light brown hair he wore brushed straight back from his forehead. In the summer session of 1881 duBiguon aud War ren Mays roomed together, and my own room at tlie Kimball house open- end into theirs. I saw much of those two gifted aud sohoiarly young Geor gians. Both were studious and each man had a decided taste for politics. They were very close in their friend ship which was only broken by tlie deatli of Warren Mays. In 1882 I again reported the winter session of the Legislature, and du- Bignon hud been elected state sena tor from the Twentieth district; com posed of the counties of Baldwin, Hancock and Washington—the same district that Mr. Northen had rep resented two years before. Into this Senate duBignon entered with a good deal of prestige. Hie brilliant record in tbe House, his easy mastery of his district while only twenty-eight years old, made him very prominent and he had a number of friends who wanted to see him elected right then to the presidency of the Senate, A majority of the members, I believe were com mitted to Hon. James S. Boynton, who also presided over the last Sen ate. Boynton was re-elected unani mously by acclamation; but few peo ple outside of the Senate knew how near duBignon would have come to defeating him had he finally made tlie race. It was this very election which made Boynton governor of Georgia when Mr. Stephens died the following March, although nobody was then thinking of the succes sion. But if Fleming duBignon had been chosen president of the Senate Geor gia would have had u#ioy governor In 1883. Had he secured this promotion he would have been a harder man to beat than was Governor Boynton, whose application for a judgeship, under Bullock barred him from being his own successor. If Senator Brown were to die or to resign today Govern- * or Gordon would be chosen senator and tlie young president of the Senate,. Fleming duBignon, would become governor forthwith. He,is very strong with the young Democracy and the man who would supplant him would have to make a “rattling campaign,” In the Senate of 1882 Mr. duBiguon< was chairman of tlie judiciary com mittee, and was virtually in charge of the legislation of tho upper House. Although young, he proved himself skilled aud resourceful and made o» career which for strength, influence and brilliancy lmd not been surpass ed by McDaniel and Meldrim, the leaders of that body in 1880. He is-; very bold and fearless; his impetuouA nature has been toned down by years and responsibility, and his friend*- know him to be a man of houor an fine sensibilities. In 1885 Fleming duBignon moved to Savannah and was almost immediate ly elected solicitor general to succeed Mr. Charlton, who resigned. DuBig- non was so popular before the Gener al Asseembly that ho eould have boen elected judge or solioitor in al most any district lie had selected. His high character and splendid abil ity were recognized all over the state and his electi. n was eminently satls- ractory in Savannah-his old home- by the way. As solicitor general he- added to his reputation and was prom inently spoken of for congress from the First district last summer. His election to the Senate from the First district was without solicitation on, his part.. He was chosen presiding officer immediately upon the orgauiza- tion of that body, and it is a further- evidence of his own streugth to say tliatfhls law partner was elected soli citor general to succeed him in the- Eastern circuit. DuBignon is recognized as a guber natorial quantity uiready. He has; not announced himself, but is attend ing to his -duties as presiding officer with dignity and ability. His manage ment of the two houses in joint as sembly is said to be marvellous inx case and tact. He is making no com binations, bas organized no following but commencing witii tbe member* of the Legislature and stretching down to each county, among the- young men of the state, he has a large- and enthusiastic following. How far- the candidacy of Mr. Nortlien and o* Mr. Livingston may affect duBignon’* candldaoy. if he runs, cannot be es timated. What effect this division of the farmer’s streugth may have can — not now be told. It is not improba ble that in the near future. Savan nah may break the spell which seem ed to He against Jackson, Lawton and Lester and elect a governor sure- enough. Fleming duBignon comes froa* Huguenot stock. His father, C&pt- Oharles duBignon was born anct reared on Jekyl island, near Bruns wick. His mother, whom be is saidk to resemble in character and disposi tion, is the daughter of Hou. Sea ton Grantland. Young duBignon was educated at the Virginia Military in stitute, then attended for a year the- University of Virginia. After gradua tion, he travelled in Europe. He wae admitted to the bar in Savannah,, and in 1875; he married the daughter of Col. Chas. A. Lamar. It is enough to say that the guber natorial election is fourteen months- off, and that there is a tremendous power in reserve. P. A. Bh.
