land and manage their own crops are said
to plant no separate field of corn, they
merely cross their cotton with it; and
stand a chanoe to make four or five.bush-
els to the acre, “if the seasons are favora
ole.” Exchange papers in adjoining
counties bring the same news. If w«
have a large cotton crop we may make np
cur minds to get 12J cents for it; but os we
will make a late one we predict the

small crop it will take it all to bay corn

. Read Till.*.
Believing that the time has come, when
ad lovers of temperance should organise
and arrest tho awfnl vice of drinking,'and
believing also that there would not be a
more successful way of reaching the good
people of this section, and arousing them
to. action, than through the columns o'
the Republican, we deem the cause and
the reason a sufficient excuse- for tres
passing upon the attention of our readers.
Few people seem to think cf the awful
effects of inebriety. There are six hund
red thousand drunkards iu the .United
States. Of these sixty thousand die eve
ry year. One hundred thousand men
and women, under the influence of in
toxicating liquors, are sent to prison
eveiy year. Two hundred thoui-and chil
dren are sent to the poor :houae. Three
hundred murders are committed. The
proportion of those who' drink to those
whe do not, according to carefully kept
records in England and America, is four
to one. Four hundred snicides are com
mitted yearly. When cholera or any pes
tilential fever prevails, nearly all the sub
jects are of those who use intoxicating
drinks. In proof of this Dr. Canwrlght
says that five thousaa l of the intempe
rate died of yellow fever in New Orleans
in 1853, before a single sober man was
touched. Toe testimony of all magis
trates. chaplains and prison-keepers goes
to prove that nine-tenths of all the crimes
have their origin in intoxicating drinks,
and that seven-eighths of all the pauper
ism originates in the same cause. It
costs the United States StiO,000,000 annu
ally to support pauperism and crime.
The official reports of 1866, show that
one hundred and eighty-six millions gal
lons of fermented, forty millions gallons
distilled, and ten millions gallons im
ported liquors, aggregating two hundred
and thirty-six millions gallons, are con
sumed annually in tho Uuited States,
costing five hundred millions dollars.
On ibis a revenue of only $17,727,201} is
paid, making a clear loss of over $150,-
000,000 to the country. These are start
ling facts, and when we consider them
we think .they appeal to all who love
peace and order, to organize and battle
against the use of intoxicating liquors
a beverage. They appeal with such a
sad tale of havoc, anguish, despair and
crime as should at once nroitse all lovers
of good to battle for the liberation of
those who, by the use of these drinks,
have become bound by the chains of de
spair. Let us come now to our own sec
tion. Almost every trading establish
ment deals in this beverage of hell, and
every day we see the sad effects of rum.
Victim after victim, in our own midst,
have fallen into the snares of the enemj*
and now fill drunkards’ graves. These
men are contributing, we xnay say, their
time, talent, money, family and souls to
help increase this already large amount of
suffering. This drinking reduces them
to the worst kind of s’avery. Not long
ago wo went to see a man who once stood
high in the church of God. He re
am ked to us, “I was once a man—I am
not now.” No, he felt that lie was no
longer a man. What can tho feelings of
any man be, while listening to such re
marks as these, coming from a slave to
whiskey, while tears were trickling fast
down his bloated face? Pen cannot des.
cribe our feelings as we looked upon that
poor man, with that despair depicted up.

Toe Late Poize Fight.—The follow
ing, relative to the late fight, near New
Orleans, we clip from the Times :
To detail the many interesting inci
dents of this great historic event in the
annals of flatiana would be to fill a vol
ume, but still there were a few which
came under our immediate observation of
such a striking and novel character as to
at once challenge cur best attention.—
First among these was the gladiator's
oath. The first meeting of Hoenun and
Mace, about half on hour after the fight,
was as notable as it was strangely sol
emn. The Benicia Boy grasped bis friend
by the hand with a congratulating grip,
and drawing him aside, said, * Jem, you
’ve won the fight, and now I claim your
promise—raise your right hand—‘ We
solemnly swear, so help us God, never
again to put up our hands in a prizoring,
never! never! never!”. Mace bowed his
head and solemnly repeated the obliga
The auditors who heard the oath re
corded were visibly affected; for a few
minutes there was much quiet hand-shak
ing going on, and many expressions of
satisfaction at what was deemed the dis
charge of a proper obligation to soeiety.
All felt that a man of such kind and gen
ial disposition, rapidly passing the meri
dian of life, who had been the hero of
twenty-oix battles, without a living con
queror, should withdraw from an associa
tion so foreign to his nature. Heenan’a
action iu the matter was considered
worthy of him, and no lees than could be
. expected from the gallant American, who
had broken, in this instance, through a
resolution of long standing, only to re
pay a kindness, and to discharge what he
considered « friendly duty to an oldoom-
rade, whom neither time, position nor
fortune could induce him to forsake. As
the occasion of the formal retirement of
these two great fistic heroes from the
ring, this event yesterday was made one
“Which tray I fly is hall, myself am holl,
And in tho lowest deep, a lower deep
Still threatening to devour me, opens wi«la,
To which the helj I suffer seems a heaven."
In order, therefore, to arrest this grow,
ing evil, let us organize Good Templar
Lodges in every community. Ten dol
lars will secure a charter and necessary
rituals. Applications for chatters, aud
enquiries for information, should be ad
dressed to the Editor of this paper.
Cascelleco Revenue Stamps.—Under
the provisions of t he act of June 30,1864,
the Commissioner of Internal Revenu
was authorized to prescribe such method
for the cancellation of stamps os he
might deem expedient and effectual. On
the 19rh of last Februaiy, Circular No
82 was iasned from the Internal Revenue
Department, providing that on and after
May 1 1870, all adhesive stamps used
upon the instrument^ documents, wri
tings and papers required to be stamp
ed shall be cancelled by the person offer
ing the same, either by writing upon
each and every stamp, in ink, the initials
of his name and the date (year, month
and day) upon which the same is used or
attached, or by catting and cancelling
the same with the machine called
“ Wheeler’s Patent Cancellor,” or such
other machine as might afterward be
designated by the Commissions, no other
method of cancelling to be recognized
as legal and sufficient' after that date.
As this restriction to the use of ono single
machine, thereby creating a monopoly
in their manufacture, was found to work
to the serious detriment of the business
men throughout the whole country,' the
Commissioner has just issued a circular
authorizing the use of three other ma
chines for the cancellation of stamps,
namely : “E. D. Chamberlain's Cutting
and Dating Machine.” and “Thompson’s
National Revenue Stamp Canceller.”

A Memphis dispatch; of the 11th iusk,
to the Western Press, says :
Bishop Janes, Daniel Curry, Levi
Scott, and others of the Northern Metho
dist Church, submitted a memorial to th**
Southern General Conference ns follows;
“By action and authority of the Gen
eral Conference at Chicago, May, 18C8.
we were appointed a commissi* n to co
operate with a like commission lrom the
Church South on tho subject of union.
At a meeting of the commission in Phila
delphia, November 23d, 1869, a resolution
was adopted approving the action con
templating a union of the two Churches,
but it is thought proper to make this
further communicate n The appoint
ment of this' commission shows that iu
the judgment of the Northern Church
there is not sufficient reason why a nnion
may not lie effected on honorable terms
Hoping that you may see the subject in
tho same light, and Chat you may ap
point a simil ir commission to confer with
us previous to next General Conference
in 1872, and preying that you may be
prospered in all that pertains the weusre
of the Christian Church, aud desiring
jour prayers in behalf of the Church,

memorial is referred, consists of the
strongest men in the Conference here.
It is thought that the proposition wiil

Washington, May 11.—The Georgia
mrdlle is likely to prove “an elephant”
m the hands of tho Radical Congress.
The leaders are absolutely at fault, and
know not wliat to do to extricate them-
selv s. I have h« r > of many plans.
Among them one to admit the State at
once, and leave the question of the ten
ure of office of the Executive aud Legis
lature to the courts. It is clear that
great difficulties beset this proposition.
In the meantime the country is becoming
sick of further trickery in this respect.
Georgia (I mean the white citizens of that
State.) by pursuing the steady and strict
ly honorable policy of non action in the
way of cmcili'ition, and dignified indiffer-
euoe as to tekat their oppressors would
do, has pushed the unprincipled faction
ruling the country to the very verge of
their power, without in the least com
promising even her interests. A siai>ar
coarse on the part of the Southern States
generally tronll 'o ig since have brought
Congress to fy senatk
In this connection it may be observed
that “i©construction,” as regards Tenn
essee or any other of the reconstructed
or unreconstructed States, to use a phrase
current in Congress, is essentially “play
ed out.” Scarcely a corporal’s guard
could now be mustered in either House
to commence the process in fresh locali
ties, while a year ago, or less, it might
have been done with impunity. This
shows tho “ revolution” to have received
an important check. To come to a
stand-still threatens the disruption o!
the Radical organization, it is true—but
to go further would render inevitable the
di>iatcg»tion of this Empire! This is
the fearful dilemma in which the leaders
t>re placed. Sumner and Butler, with a
few of their satilites, would gladly and
madly “cross the Rubicon,” but their in
fluence with tho public is gone forever.
A Prominent Citizen Shot.—Yester
day afternoon between three and four
o’clock, as Mr. John Broughton, pre-
scriptiunist in the drug store of L. W.
Hunt A Co., was walking from dinner
along on First street, between Oak and
Arch streets, he was bailed from the op
posite aide of the street, by Mr. Henry
G. Ross, and he stopped to ascertain
what Mr. Rosa wanted. The latter gentlo
man walked across the street to where
Broughton wus standing, and asked him
a question in regard to some family diffi
culty which has existed between them for
some time past, and while Mr. Brough
ton was replying, Mr. Ross drew his pis
tol aud shot him—the ball entering near
the breast-bone and rangiug diagonally
through the body and ngtii lung passed
out near the centre of the right * boulder-
blade, inflicting what his pnysicans say,
is an exceedingly dangerous, but not
necessarily, mortal wound. When si o
