A fire ocenred at West Point, Ga.
this week, burning the Young Men’s
Library Association rooms and eight
stores. The losses are neatly all
covered by insurance.
Mr. J. D. lloyl, former editor of
tiie Dawson Join Bat, has retired
from t iie tripod of that paper, having
disposed of all right and title which .
he posoesed thereto.

Sharon, of Nevada, was in his j
seat in the Senate one day last week. |
for the first time in a year: His i
successor will doubtless do something
to earn his salary. Sharon has never
given an equivalent.
The bill to place Grant on the
retired list went over Monday under ;
the objection of Senator Ve9t, who !
said as Grant bad left the army to
become a politician, he must now
take the politician's pot-luck.
The sentence of death recently
passe 1 upon Charles Powell, colored,
for the murder of Sain Stathain in
Telfair county, has been commuted
by the Governor to imprisonment for
life, Powell recently having been
pronounced of unsound, mind.
A correspondent writing from
Washington says “The American
habit of dancing comes from no
passionate love of the amusement,
but is persisted in because no great
leaders ot ton have the genius to in
vent anything better to do.”
The papers say Sawyer, recently
elected U. S. Senator from Wis
consin, is the possessor of a colossal
fortune. Only rich men can now
get to the U. S. Senate from Nor
thern States. Merit and ability have

Democracy and God the devil. He
goes to Australia this year to lecture
against God, and next year he will
be back pitching into what is left of
the Democratic party. Hell and
Democracy once disposed of, and
Bob’s occupation will be gone.
The whiDping-post seems to be
getting popular again. New York
and New Jersey law-makers seriously
contemplate introducing the instru
ment in those States for the benefit
of wife-beaters. Delaware may yet
have a chance to retort on her
(Chris are a little ahead of boys. A
Chicargo girl ot ten tried to commit
suicide, and an Atlanta girl of ten
would have married if anybody
could have been found willing to per
form the wedding ceremony. The
Cincinnati boy who has committed
forgery is eleven 3-ears old.
An impression is gaining ground in
Washington, according to a corres
pondent, that the hostility agaiustthe
Mormons w stimulated by a number
of gentlemen in Utah, who are aware
ot the vabable mineral deposits in
districts ownod by the Mormons, and
are seeking to drive them off, thus
forcing their property on the market
that it may be bought at a sacrifice.
Mr. Murdock D. Wilcox, of

The movement in Texas to rarye
three States out of the immense teri
tory covered by that name is favored
by the people of the State. There is
nothing to prevent this subdivision,
as it is pemnited by the stipulations
through which Teflas came into the
Union, but with Republican control
of Congress the Senator* elected by
the three States will have a hard
time getting their seats, of course.

Legislature, stating that he has no
land ; that his wife, who weighs not
more than 100 pounds, has had four
sets of twins iu rapid succession ;
that fiis family is increasing at such
a rate that relief is necessary, etc.
Mr. Orr should either buy hmself six

A vote was taken in the United
States Senate yesterday which indi
cates clearly that the Democratic ma
jority in the Upper House will op
pose any measure looking to the hon
or, glory, or emolument of ex-Presi

Henry Jones, a white man,
attempted to commit a brutal outrage
upon a little 10 year old negro girl
nearGiiffln, last Sunday. The cries
of the girl attracted assistance, and
the scoundrel fled. He was sub
sequently arrested, but through the
carelessness of his guards he made
his escape and is still at large. The
community is greatly incensed at the
villain, and every effort is being
made to again catch him. Ho is
■described as being about 23 or 24
years old, rather under the medium
height and size, light hair, a thin,
light moustache, blue eyes, and a
face inclined to be peaked.
A most extraordinary progress is
apparently- about to be entered on
respecting the utilization of cotton,
the particulars of the process are
briefly as follows. Instead of pick
ing the cotton in the field, the stalks
are pulled up by the roots and hauled
to buildings. Clippers are used
to cut off the limbs, and then cut off
the bolls. The cotton is taken from
the bolls by a hull separator, the
stalk ani the limbs with the boils cut
off are ready to go to the vat to be
made ready to have the jute taken
off; the bolls are realy to go to the
paper mill; the seed cotton is ready
to go to the Clement attachment mill.
Cotton-picking with human finger s
is dispensed with. The roots will
probably give a good percentage of
cotton manilla. The yield will,
therefore, be cotton lint,oil cake,cot
ton manilla, seed hulls (to add to
lubricating compounds), and bolls
j (to make brown paper.)

We can live on one hundred dol
lars each until we can reach our
crops, and still he does not seem
able to foot the bill. The reason
so many of us failed last year and
the year before, was because they
were not good crop years. The
merchants can’t blame us if we
don’t pay. Me has plenty of Clour,
