A UQ FBTA ~GA. * WEMESnAY. MORM.MJ. MAY it. infarin ition De-tred. I ne A'lanta Lra sijs, a youlh about seven ■ ' ■•n year* old, almost idiotic, wandered from h!s Lorae “ ea r Oxford. Ga„ several days since, and when last beard from, was (near Conyers, and was supposed to be making bis way to AManta. lie wears a gray jeans round jacket, pants of the same material, a wool bat con fcidi ably worn, coarse shoes, and has an im pediment in his speech, lie will suffer if not found, aa he has not sufficient intellect to take < ure ol himself. Any information left with Messrs. Tommey, Stewart 4 Orr, of Atlanta, will be communicated to Mr. Louis Smith, his distressed father. X fc-md Character, A good character is to a young man what a li'ia foundation is to 'he artist who proposes to erect a building on it. lie can build with safety, and all who behold it will have con f] lento in its solidity. A helping hand will never be wanted, t ut let a single part of this be defective, and you go at hazard, amidst doubt and distrust, and ten to one, it will tumble down at last and mingle all tbat was built on it, in ruin. Without a good charac ter, poverty is a curse; with it, it ig scarcely an evil. Happiness cannot exist, where a good character is not. All that is calm and blissful in the sober scenes of life, ail that is soothing in the vale of tears, centre in, and is dirived from a good character, Being first and most valuable, its acquirements should be tho para mount object of youthful ambition. Ludicrcti; Stciic Its a ihurch. An aged Clergyman, speaking of the solem nity attached to the Mininterial ollice, said tnat during forty yearn that he had officiated therein, hn gravitty, in the pulpit, Lad never been but once disturbed. On that occasion he Pad noticed a man di rectly in front of him. leaning over the railing ol the gallery, with something in bit) hand, which he afterwards d’scovered to be a big che,/ of tobacco, just taken from his mouth. Directly below . at a man fast asleep, with bis be ad barir and his month wide open. The man in the gallery was intensely engaged in raising and lowering his hand, taking an ex act observation, till at last, having got it tight lie let fall hit quid, and it weat plum into the mouth ot the sleeper below ! The whole scene was ho indescribably ludicrous that for,tho first and la-1 time in the pulpit, an involuntary smile forced itself upon the countenance of the preacher. X lined n«vti Some of the capitalists of i’itlsburg have formed a joint stock company for tho purpose ol erecting a large number of houses to relieve the business and working classes from tho pre- Heut burden of exorbitant rents. Thismovr* moot is a most commendable one, and it would be'well for our capitalists to form a similar company here. It is important to every corn muuity that the working classes be encouraged to bicoino ptrinanent citizens. The present rates of rent ure such as to drive men of rnaderate incomes away, and to prevent this cla-s from so tlmg among us. Augusta pre- advantages for manufacturing. A wise direction of capital to their develop, ment will make it Ibe first manufacturing city ot the Somh. The first step in Ibis direction n quires intelligent laborers and arlizans. But when we invite them to come and settle with us, to embark in any enterprise, the firs! prac ticable inducement to secure them, is to oiler them houses lor their families at a fair rent Let us have a joiut stock building company. Who will start the ball 't i lie Augusta Orphan Asylum :in«l ilonght on Institute. Mr. Thomas U. lloileyman, having been elected to the Siipetlutendency of the Augusta Orphan Asylum, has resigned the Principal ship o! the Houghton Institute, and will soon enter upon the discharge of the duties incident to his new office. For the proper management of the Asylum, Captain Holleyman is wel iitted, both by reason of bis intimate acquaint auce with the ways of children, their proper government, and his natural kindness of heart. We are confident that , tinder ki3 control, the Asylum will reta n all of its former prestige, which was won for it by the amount of good done the fatherless and the motherless of this community. Mr. Joseph T. Derry has been temporarily appointed to occupy the position vacated by Captain Holleyman. Mr. Derry shared the first honors of liis clas3, which graduated at Emory College in iB6O. Since the close of the war he has been engaged in teachiug, and has been very successful. To the Principal’s Chair of the Houghton Institute he brings a well balanced and highly cultivated intellect, and will, we doubt not, give satisfaction to those who elevated him, as also to those whose chil dren may be pluced under his tutorship. This Internal Revenue. —The Commissioner ot Internal Revenue has decided that all ex penses for insurance upon property, and all ac Inal losses in business, may be deducted from tit- gross income of the year ; but losses sus taine i after December 31, 18ti5, cannot reduce the income for that year. Losses incurred in the prosecution of one kind of business may be deducted from the gains in another, but not from the portions of income derived from fixed invtstmtnts such as bonds, mortgages, rents ard the like. The Assessor should also be careful not to allow the deduction of amounts claimed to have been lost in business, when in reality they should be regarded as investments or expenditure, as when merchants expend money in burning or gardening, for recreation or adornment rather than pecuniary profit. Persons travelling about the country as agents of manufacturers for dealers seeking orders for goods as agents for one person or firms only such as salaried clerks, or men hired by the month, should not be required to take licenses as commercial brokers. Ail parts oi decision number 139 inconsistent houwith are hereby revoked. Points of a Goon Uoo.—The mere name (breed) of a hog, says the Rural American, is not always a criterion ot its excellence. Early maturity and a tendency to take on flejh, will do more towards making a,bcg valuable, than any virtue contained in the mere title of Berk shire. Suffolk, &0., for it may .‘possess more of the valuable qualities of the breed. • In the true*Berkshire, the result of a cress between the Chinese and Neapolitan varieties, we find the nearest approach to a desirable staudatd. the chief points of which are as fol lows: the breast and loins should be broad, the bone anu joints small, and the legs just long enough to prevent the belly from touch ing the ground; the feet should be firm, even, upright and sound: the head should be btoad and thick: the snout short, and the ears light, thin and inclined slightly forward. N'or is color to be overlooked in determining the breed ot the animal. A dark skin and thin hair shows‘Neapolitan blood; a white skin and medium size indicate the Chinese breed, while a light or reddish hue, with dark spots, denotes tne Berkshire. Pskips cf Criscl’Ne.— The other day a man got entangled in the crinoline of a woman who was walking along Ludgate Hill, London, end was thrown to the ground and so severely injured that death ensued from effusion of blood on the brain. Our Difficulties. The most serious obstacle to'the speedy re vival of business in the t?ouih and the efficient development cf her resources, is the want of both capital and labor. These have been wasted to feucb an extent, by four years of war, tbat the supply available within our holders is entirely inadequate to our wants. If every dol lar and every arm were applied to th‘ thou sand avenues of profitable invedment, which our diversified resources present, the effect would be barely the opening up of the way to the grand achievements which constantly beck on us onward. Our labor system has been sadly disorganized, and the result thereof is seen on every hand. The demands of trade require ail the capital that is left us. There is but little to move tbe arms of artizans to new industrial enter pi:ze. Money and muscle are the great prac tical necessities of the times. These must be introduc'd from abroad. The artizan and thrif y laborer of the new and old world can undoubtedly better their condition in this sun ny sphere. Unfortunately the spirit and tem per of our people have been so greatly rnisrep resented as to divert the tide of immigration to the West; while, a f the same time, tbcße re ports have a tendency to deter investment of Northern capital among us. Sensational re ports are industriously and purposely circu lated which lead those not familiar with the facts in the cage to believe tbat we are still re bellious ; tbat owing to passion and prejudice, Northern men are not safe in our midst; that from the jealousy of the freedmt-n, Europeans would be in danger. And thus it is that our fields are suffered to lie comparatively idle, and the hum of industry is but feebly heard, if at all, amid tbe desolation which broods over our once beautilul land. It is no easy work to make headway against these ban iers to our future progress, there ;s so much of passion naturally intermingled with the memories of our late struggle, on both sides, that it is difficult for either to form a correct estimate of the other. Especially is it difficult for the South to suosessfully and effec tually combat the countless emissaries cf mis chief who are bearing false witness against her in and out of Congrqgs, in pulpit, press and par lor ; in fact, everywhere a convert can be made to tho leveling doctrine which rule the hour. Our only hope is in bearing cur heads aloft, showing ourselves to he os citizens what we were as soldiers—devotees of principle, un swerving advocates of constitutional law and liberty. By continuing strictly conservative our enemies’ statements will be exhibited in their true light, and we shall find a remedy for and a happy deliverance from the troubles which environ us. foutbern (QMsdppi) Railroad. We bad the pleasure of a call from M. Emanuel,'Esq., President of tbe above Railroad, and were gratified to learn from him that the affairs of the Company are about being placed upon a satisfactory footing. Ho has just re turned from Europe, whither he bad gone to effect an arrangement with the foreign bond holders, to get an extension of time on the Bonds due or falling due in a short time. We Biro glad to learn that bis mission was entirely successful. All the foreign bond-holders teadily assented to the substitution of the Conpanj’s bonds falling due in 181)0 and bear ing interest at. the rate of 7 per cent, in lieu of the present bonds now held by them. The holders of these bonds in this country, so far as they have been heard from, have unani mously consented to this arrangement, and thut the Company are relieved from the em barrassments growing out of the necessity of making immediate provisions for tbe payment of the bonded debt now and past due. Tho Company being thus left free to appro priate its immediate earnings in repairing the road and reconstructing bridges, and in pur chasing rolling stock, to refit the road, the work has been and will be pushed with vigor Tho cars now run over its entire length from Vicksburg to Meridian, a distance of 146 miles. There is a break in the transit at Big Black liver, near Jackson, at present, which will be overcome in a few days, by the completion, over that stream, of aspendid iron bridge. This is an important link in our Southern Rairload system, bringing this place and the cities of Charleston and Savannah in direct communication by rail with the Mississippi river at Vicksburg. The only break iftvv in the line is the gap of forty three miles between Montgomery and Selma, and which is now in course of construction, and will be completed within a year. With the completion of our own road to Macon, we will then have a con tinuous and almost an entiie rail communica tion with Vicksburg via Macon and Columbus, through Montgomery, in addition to the one already in operation by Atlanta and West Point, Selma. Meridian and Jackson, and cars loaded with produce at Vicksburg can be brought through to this city without a single chango. This line will be a strong competition of the Memphis and Charleston, and Louisville and Nashville routes for the great Western trade and travel. The low grades o' the Southern line and its exemption from sharp curves wili enable it to bring merchant;ise from Vicksburg at a much lower rate than at pre sent demanded by the roads connecting with Memphis and Nashville. We chronicle with pleasuvo these indica tions of returning prosperity iu our Southern country, and hope ere long to see al! uur pub lic works re-established on the basis of their former prosperity. The Income Tax. It should be remembered by tax payers, says the New York Evening Post, that the Ist of May is the time fixed by the internal law for the return of schedules of incomes to the as-istant assessors. The amended law of March 3, 1865, is still in force, and it is offi cially announced that the assessment cf this year will be made in accordance with its pro visions, regardless of any action of Congress on the new tax bill just reported to the House. The Senate refused to concur iu the House resolution providing for an extension of lime for two months, in order to permit the new law to go into operation. The duties on incomes are payable within sixty days alter the return of the schedule to the assessor— that is. on or before the 30th of June. The income must be reckoned lor the year ending December 31. 1863, and the tax is 5 per cent, on all sums between S6OO and $5,000, and 10 per cent, on the excess over $5,000. The deductions permitted are : 1. The snm of S6OO from all incomes. 2. All national, State, county and municipal trxes paid within the year (including the in come tax paid last summer.) 3. The amount paid for rent, or the rental value of any homestead occupied by the tax : pryer or his family, iu his owu right or iu the right of his wife. 1. The amount paid for nsual or ordinary repaifs, taking the average of the preceding five years. These are all the deductions that can be made. The income tax is a lien upon property if not paid within the time fixed by law, and the col lectors are invested with lull powers to take legal proceedings sot distraint and collection. The proper observance of the time and man ner of paymeat will therefore save the tax payer much trouble. Be in the fashion : you had better dispense other people's follies than your own. There are a great many beams iu the eyes ot ladies, but they are generally all sunbeams. To be careful is the way to guard against care. Hot that which men do worthily, but that which they do (successfully, is what bistory makes hast* to record. State Item-. The County Court officers of Fulton are : B. D, Smith, Judge; George S.

The Government acted promptly and with energy. Troops were marched rapidly from different points and concentrated so judiciously, tluat the in surgents were dispersed. Two of the most active of their leaders escaped, and order was restored. From South America.. New York, January 3— Advices from Rio Janeiro, Aprii 3J, state that it is believed the issues of the Bank of Brazil will be increased, the Government guaranteeing it, and the ten millions of gold in its vaults be withdrawn to meat expenses of the war. Two Peruvian iron-clads bad arrived from England. They captured the ‘ Spanish schooner Dorothea, using the United States flag. A Peruvian ironclad was daily expected from the United States.

From H exico. New Yobk, May 3.—The Herald’s corres pondence from the City of Mexico, llih. says the siege cf Mazatlan s:.ill continued, with occa sional skirmishes. The Washington Gazette tells of three vil lains who went to the bouse o' an old. negro man in Lincoln county named Cobb, last Mon day. and demanded his money. On his refus ing to give it up, they bung hfm, and went to hi? son’s cabin and hung him. The old man got loose, and ss soon as he recover! id from the strangling, went to the white neighbors and got assistance, and overhauled the bandit ti, oue of whom was killed, another t'hot in the neck, and the other took to flight. Their three horses were captured. The man 1 silled was a stranger. The wounded mau belo lgs in Lincoln, and the third in Columbia. Tbose good citizens of Lincoln county who ansi vered so promptly and effective iy the old negro’ scall for assistance are deserving of the big ‘best credit.

Liverpool, Friday, April 13. Cotton.—The course of the market during the past week has been uninterruptedly down wards with extreme irregularity of prices. On Wednesday morning there was an increased demand, but it did not last the day out. The influences alluded to in our last report all con tinued with great force against the market, and have caused the very serious decline of about per ib in American, and of 31 or more in the other descriptions of cotton, and we close without perceptible indication of a rally. The transactions in cotton to arrive are numerous, at a fall in prices in proportion to those for cotton on the spot. The demand for sea islands has been very freely met, and prices of the medium qualities have been rather ir regular at a decline of Id to 2d per lb within the fortnight; sales of the week, 360 bags. The following figures are from the Liverpool Cotton Brokers’ Association Circular of last evening: Sales of the week, on speculation, 3,560 bales; to exporters, 13,140 bales; to the trade, 32 400 bales-total, 49,100 bales; of which 2,150 were American. Imports of the week, 65,191 bales, of which 25,116 were American. Estimated Stock. 676,220 bales, ol which 306,- 920 bales are American; against 600,530 bales same time last year, of 62,070 were American. quotations: Middling Uplands 15|4 Mobile 15fd Middling Orleans 16 and Texas 16 and - Money has been in very good demand at about bank rate, 6 per cent. The reserve ol the Ban* ot England is £7,188,763, which, com pared with last week, is an increase of £269,- 431. Manchester, April 14. The market is very much shaken, and prices have the same downward tendency which characterizes our market, and it is not likely that much steadiness will be found until things right themselves here. Cotton continues in the same deplorable state reported above; yest-rday the market fell from 11 to £ 1 per lb; Middling Orleans at about 15Jd; sales 7,000 bales. To-day there is a further decline, increased irregularity and quotations quite nominal ; buyers name very low prices, which, in some instances, are accept ed; the sales may reach 5,000 or 6,000 bales. The following is from a large and reliable Liverpool house: Liverpool, 14th April, 1866. la addition to previous causes of decline, we have this week had a pressure by holders hard up for cash, and a change of wind has brought us about 100.000 bales of cotton, a large por tion ol which having been sold, to arrive, will require prompt providing for. Our additional troubles are the uncertainty of German matters, and continued free receipts at New Orleans, a.l of which alarm holders and danse distrust, both with home and foreign FpiDUtilf# . , Nothing whatever is doing m Manchester, buyers and sellers preferring to look on until they find out where the decline is to end.
