This is emphatically a progressive age. Not
a day dawns, but to herald into notice some
strange invention. Revolution is the word
that qualifies the world’s action. Profiting by
the lessons of tbe part, the people are, with
rapid strides, moving forward and onward,
' turning neitiicr to tho right hand or the left.
In the pursuit of whatever is attainable. The
much leery that propels steamers over the
bosoms of our rivers and lakes, is made, at the
satno time, to break the monotony of travel by
means of music from the calliope. It has been
arranged that travelers on railroads can retire
at night in sloepiug cars, and dream the hours
away while the Iron Horse rushes madly on to
his destination. For a number of years that
band of real, true heroes—the Firemen of
America—have undergone great fatigue and
suffered much in running and working with
hand engin e. These are fast giving place to
steamers, and instead of men being required
to draw them, horses aro used, bo that tho la
bors of firemen aro greatly lessened. Mon are
growing more and more independent each day
they live. Adventure seems to control tbe
action of almost every one. There are cortain
men and women who are so constituted as to
be able to reap happiness and to onjuy the
scoues of nature, whether on land or water,
only when they are alone, and, to this end, we
find Borno who have already’exhibited temerity
enough to essay the passage of tho Atlantic in
a small boat that would most likely bo mo
tneutarily Uasbed to pieces, in even a modere
ately rough sea. Then there are those
who, not content with having the world
at their command, so far as a desire to
explore and wonder over is concsrned, are
constantly hatching out somo new devise,
making hazardous experiments, In the hope of
appropriating to themselves a sure means of
soaring aloft, as do the lark and eagle. This
sublunary sphere is too poor in charms for
them. They would court an evening’s ride in a
strata of atmosphere, not so far removed from
the Silver Urn, and twinkling stars.
In New York, another step forward has late
ly been taken. To keep line horses does not
appear to be desirable, therefore a substitute
for them has been brought into use. On tho
nfternoou of the 12th, tho papers, say, there
appeared on Broadway, much to tho astonish
ment of the Gothamites, a vehicle propelled
Tho carriage was about eight or tea feet in
length; with iron wheels, aud had two seats
lengthwise, with comfortable cushions and
backs. It was occupied by half a dozen men,
ami was operated by one nmu, who acta both
as engineer and guide. There was very little
noise, and nothing to denote its speciality ex
cept the absence of horses and a small Bmoke
stack, about a foot oigh, at the forward end.
The stack resembled an ordinary stove pipe-
Tho carriage was turned into Grand street with
apparent ease, and that street being les3 ob
structed by vehicles than Broadway, it wa ß
driven at tbo average speed of a horse-car.
From this, ono would suppose that horses are
to be laid on the shelf.
There is no class of men, who are more fre
quently called upon to exercise charity, and to
console with those who may have fallen vic
tims to the changes of fortune, than Ministers
of the Gospel ; none are required to make, as
a general rule, greater sacrifices, and none
receive less material reward for their labor.
Au exchange has well said, few city Pastors
receive as liberal a salary as principal sales

My respected Old Master : I address you thus

you were ever kind to me. as well as all those
who were your termer staves. Freedom has its
advantages and disadvantages, and while we
would act go back into slavery, we are not un

many kindnesses we have received at your
hand both in sickness and health. With these
preliminary remarks I acknowledge the receipt
of your kind letter, through CoioDel A. C. Me*
Keen, and take the greatest satisfaction and
pleasure in answering it, and I thank you for

Freedom has not turned me a foci, nor has it
caused me to entertain prejudices like many
o’hers. I feel that I shall ever conduct raysdf
so as to have the esteem and respect of ail.

of all mod- r:i sen itions and a sort of culmin**
ting triumph of hie reign. He is favorably
situated tor suciesi as every one will admit,
both from uis power, bis talents, and the na
tional resources th it he his at his command. -
In spite of-tie inparent ndvoiity of this great
nation .nd .heir extreme devotion to the
pleasure o: ihe moment, there is always an
under cur. c-l'- , d-.p and strong, of serious
labor and w~a directed energy Its profes
nen, its military leaders,
its invent;- . and its; artisans, heve| always
worked with unlimited zeal, both with hands
and brains, for the good of their country, and
m - result of their efforts, especially in late
years, ha; been enormous. Under their re
public, so ca.ls their capital was filtered away
in a thousand profitless works, but Napoleon
has economiz and it. and, by the strong pressure
of imperial power, given it a condjmnation. a
strength and an impetus such as the nation has
never before : een. The truth of this will be
clearly shown at the coming exposition. From
present appearances it will be a grand success,
and most worthily represent tbe industrial re
sources of the world. It will be to Napoleon
one ot the crowning glories of his reign, one of
those victories of peace with which even mill
military despots, if they j>e wise, delight
to adorn their empires.
Gigantic as are the various works connected
with the comtDg exhibition, they are all pro
ceeding with great rapidity. Many journals,
for want of more authentic information, have
started rumors that the necessary arrangements
for the opening iu April, 1867, cannot be com
pleted. If they could only seethe progress

their editorial comments in a different tone.
The enormous building is ival't advanced and
the metallic root a portion of it is already in
place. The general outline can be easily
made oat, and the surrounding gardens are
partly designated. The laborers work from
dawn to twilight. Sunday included, and their
number equals that of a small army. Each
day there i3 promised some new addition to
the splendors of this ’expose of the universe.—
Among other attractions will be an enormous
stable, in the Russian style, to accommodate
five hundred horses. It will be surrounded
with Muscovite and Caucasian houses one of
which wili be oecu pied by a restaurant manag
ed by an officer from Bt, Betersburg. Here
one can feast ala russe iu such a barbaric
splendor as his purse will command. He can
flirt with Charlotte; hob-a-nob with Don Cos
sacks, and treat them to caviare aud candles;
ogie the dark eyed beauties of the Caucasus,
and in u post prandial snooze dream of Lord
Byron anu Mazeppa. Christianity will also be
represented at this exhibition, and paradoxical
as it may appear, probably, though not so
much from intrinsic merits, as because M. do
Chateaubriand took so much pains to write it
up. A space of two hundred square metres
has been granted to the Protestant missiona
ries, in which wdl be .shown various particles
and productions sent home by those devoted
laborers fr> in ihe islands of the ocean, from
the interior of Asia, from the trackless wilds
of Africa, and wherever effie their Christian
zeal has kd them to save the souls of men.
Every day adds some fre3h and piquant at
traction, and Parisians roaliy seem to be get
ting quite in tana in the matter. A company is
actually organizing here to cover the Palais
Royal with glass, and establish there a vast
restaurant, where sixty thousand persons could
dine perjjday, at prices varying' from forty to
fifty sous per head. At the end of the exhi
bition the company propose to place everything
in its former position, soli the oid glass and
china at auction, pay off the garcons and gar
counottes, settle with tho butcher and baker,
give a grand dinner of funeral baked meats to
the shareholders, and then divide the receipts.
As to tho latter they have made very nice cal
culations. The receipts for five months are to
reach twenty nine millions and some odd francs
and the profits throe millions, with enongh
over to make a handsome present to their saa
guino secretary, who made these flattering esti
mates. The originators of this scheme don’t
look upon it as a joke, but the wits of Paris do,
and have already lampooned it into shreds. It
is said that tho company propose to use the
basin of the grand fountain in which to boil
their potatoes, and one of tho Imperial dry
docks to cook their soup; that they have
bought tbe forest of the Arienues to cut up
into toothpicks, &c , &c., all of which will give
one an exceijent idea of the high seasoned
hash of the grave, the gay, the lively, and the
severe that go to form the Parisian’s daily food.

upon whose support he is confident he may rely.
Should the opposition of the Liberals change
from its present desultory, guerrilla form, into
anything like a -formidable, organized character,
he will himself take the field and personally
direct the operations for sustaining the laws
and protecting the people against threatened
anarchy. With this programme, it is hardly
possible that the young Emperor can fail to in
crease this prestige among a people always
ready to applaud that personal courage in which
the innumerable political leaders of Mexico have
been generally so dificient.
Maximilian has good military abilities, and
under any circumstances would not retire from
Mexico without making a desperate effort for
the support of his government. Those who
imagine that he has one foot out of the country
and is ready to quit when the French depart,
know very little about the obstinacy and de
termination of the man. Mexico has been in a
state of chronic revolution for half a century.
No ruler, of whatever stripe, ever maintained
himself there without the aid of the military ;
and to be in power, no matter how obtained,
was enough to raise a factious opposition—not
of the kind which generally expends itself in
harmless streams of ink, as in the United States,
but at the sword’s point and the cannon’s
mouth. Thus it is no remarkable thing that
Maximilian should find opponents ; but it is
safe to say that his government is to-day the
most popular, as it is the widest extended and
generally recognized this country has ever had,
and it may not be generally known that the
empire has already lasted nearly twice as long
as any other administration since the days of
Iturbide —that is, for more than forty years.
‘ The National Exprets,” aud the “National
Express and Transportation” Company.
Our attention has been called to the follow
ing circular over the signature of “J, E. John
ston, President,” and to which we invite the
attention of merchants and business men of
our city :
“Attention is particularly called to the title
of this Company, and to the fact that goods,
&c., ordered to be sent by it from New York,
are frequently shipped in direct violation of
instructions, by the National Express Compa
ny, which is a New York Company, and runs
exclusively over Northern routes; it receives
goods intended for this Company, and sends
them South and We3t by the Adams Express.”
As an act of justice to the “National Express
and Transportation Company,” over which
Gen. J. E. Johnston presides as President, we
publish the foregoing. The reader will per
ceive that the “National Express Company” is
a New York Company, running exclusively
over Northern routes, while the “National Ex
press and Transportation Company” is what its
name purports—hence, ail merchants, or other
parties South, who desire to patronize the last
named company, should be careful in direct
ing theii shipments, not to omit to designate
it according to its fall title, “National Express
and Transportation Company,” for the reasons
assigned in the circular of its President. Par
ties North who have been instructed to ship by
the “National Express Company” may either
innocently or through design do injustice to
the “National Express and Transportation’
Company,” when the small capital words are
omitted in the directions giveD by the mer
chant* or other person, who orders the ship
ment and who designs to patronize the last
named Express institution.— Atlanta Intelligen

French Withdrawal from Mexico.
Washington, June 22.
The President also transmitted to Congress a
dispatch from Bigelow, the American Minister
at Paris, to Seward, saying that the French
Minister, of Foreign Affairs had given the
most so'emc assurances of Napoleon’s fidelity
to his pledge to withdraw the French troops
from Mexico. This is regarded here as sealing
the fate of the Mexican Empire.
Message from ibe President.
A Bombshell in tbc Radical Camp.
Washington, June 22.
The President sent into Congress to-day the
following message, in relation to the recon.
struction amendment to .the Constitution:
2c the Senate and House of Representatives:
I submit to Congress a report of the Secre
tary of State to whom was referred a concur
rent resolution of tho 18th inst., respecting a
submission to the Legislatures of the States of
an additional article to the Constitution of the
United States. It' will be seen from this
report that the Secretary of State had on
the 16th inst., transmitted to the Beveral
States, certified copies of the joint resolution
passed on the 13th insfi, proposing an
amendment to the Constitution.
Even in ordinary times any question of
amending the Constitntioa must be justly ro
gardod as of paramount importance.
This importance is, at the present time en
hanced'by the fact that the joint resolution was
not submitted by the Houses for the approval
of the President and that of the thirty-six
States, which constituted the Union, eleven are
excluded from representation in either House of
Congress, although with the Bingle exception
of Texas, they have been entirely restored
to all their functions as States, in conformity
with the organic law of the land, and have ap
oeared at the National Capital, by Senators,
and have been refused admission to the vacant
seats. Nor have the sovereign people of the
nation been afforded an opportunity of ex
pressing their views upon the important ques
tion which the amendment involves. Grave
doubts, therefore, may justly and naturally
arise as to whether the actiou of Congress is
in harmony with tbs sentiments of the people,
and whether in Euch an issue they should be
called upon by Congress to decide upon the
ratification of the proposed amendment, wav
ing the question as to the constitutional validi
ty of the proceedings of Congress upon the
joiut resolution proposing the amendment, or
a3 to the merits of the articles which it sub
mits through the Executive Department to
tho Legislatures of the States. I deem it
proper to observe that the steps taken by Secre
tary of State, as detailed in the accom
panying report, are to bo considered as purely
ministerial, and in no sense whatever com
mitting the Executive to an approval or a re
commendation,of the amendment to the State
Legislatures. As to the people, on the contra
ry, a proper appreciation of the letter and spirit
of the Constitution as well as of the interest of
national order and harmony and union, and a
due deference for an enlightened public judg
ment, may at this time well suggest a doubt,
whether any amendment to the Constitution
ought to bo proposed by Congress and pressed
upon the Legislatures of the several States for
final decision, until after the admission of such
ioyal Senators and Representatives of the now
unrepresented States as have been or may here
after be chosen, in conformity to tho Constitu
tion and laws of the United States.
(Signed) Andrew Johnson.
Accompanying the messege of the President
is the report oi the Secretary of State, that he
had, in conformity with the proceedings which
had been adopted by him in 1865, in regard
to the proposed, and afterwards adopted. Con
gressional amendment to tho Constitution of
the United States, concerning the prohibition
of slavery, transmitted certified copies of the
joint resolution to the Governors of the several
States, together with a certificate and circular

F JIT TUB WEEK. ENDING JUNE 2cD.
The past week has been umDuaily dull, and
we have few changes to report in the price of
any loading staples. The wheat crop in several
of ;ke counfit.% along the Georgia Railroad is
reported to turn out lighter than was expected.
The new crop is beginning to come in, but
prices may not be cor,skit red settled. It is be
lieved that the unfavorable reports from the
Western crop will cause rates here for all
breadstuff's to rule high. The decline in gold,
though not so sudden ns its advance, has
tended to unsettle prices, and though price 8
do not as closely iollow gold as in larger mar
kets, they are Influenced by fluctuations in the
standard of values to such a degree as to ren
der prices quite irregular.
The cool weather of the early part of the
week was not favorable for cotton, but crops
are now growing rapidly.
It should be borne in mind that our quota
tions represent wholesale rates. Planters aud
cotntry merchants in buying small bills will
find prices a Ehadorin advance of quotations.
FINANCIAL—The decline in gold in New
York has diminished tke demand here, and
operations are limited. Brokers are paying
145, and selling at 150. Some are holding at
152. Silver 135, selling at 140. Bank notes
are dull. There is a demand for Georgia Rail
road Bonds -at par.

Daring the early part of the present week,
tho advance in the price of gold caused con

business was done in a speculative way on the
