David H. Dougherty is to Atlanta
wh.Tt A. T. Stewart was to New York
during his lifetime. Yesterday a
Phonograph reporter was shown

Mr. Dougherty, and he was surprised
to see an establishment in Atlanta of
such magnitude. During the past
week he has been very busy moving
his stock to the splendid new store
rooms, numbers 811 and 41 Peachtree
street. He occupies three stories and
the basement. The store has a front
age on Peachtree of fifty-five feel and
runs back to Pryor, a depth of 245
feet, and it is conceded to be the larg
est retail dry goods store south of
Baltimore. He uses the basement for
his jobbing rooms, and the first floor us
a retail department.
He is a very methodical business
man, has but few regulations and en
forces them strictly. Each clerk has
his special department, for which he is
personally responsible. All goods are
marked up in plain figures, and a se
vere reprimand follows the slightest
deviation from prices either way ; the
offense against this rule is equivalent
to a discharge.
In the retail department everything
that heart could wish or imagination
conceive, for the adornment of the fe
male form divine, can here l»e found in
dazzling profusion. Special attention
is given to the wants of the ladies. In

five years, and had never seen a more
flattering prospect for corn and cot ;
Says the Albany News.- “The corn
crop throughout this section is gen
erally better than was anticipated, but •
it is short nearly half. It is thought
by some of our farmers, that by strict
economy and care in planting small
grain ciops for the fall, the country
can get along without buying corn.”
A correspondent from Baker county ■
writes as follows to the Albany News:
We hear from all portions of the
county that the cotton crop is in a
I dangerous condition ; there is not more
than one-third of a crop at this time,
and the caterpillars are making their.
appearance in large numbers in all di- '
’ rections. Our farmers are naturally
gloomy and di spun lent at this unex-1
peeted turn. At best and under the
i most favorable auspicies not more ,
than one-half a crop was cx|>ected. — !
Now that the caterpillars have come
' they can hope for but an almost total
loss of this year’s crop. Already the
work of destruction has commenced
and no one cam tell where the end will
be. We hope for better things, but it
is only a hope.

Volume one is to be ready early in

i ably low prices are accounted for by i
the method of sale, to the subscribers
'direct, saving them the large commis-
I sion, often 50 or 60 per cent, paid to
agents or dealers ; also, by the recent
great reduction in the cost of making
books, and by making very large sales.

\Jith old English history we assoc
ciate the aged harper, seated in some
castle tiall, recounting the deeds of the
noble lord fie serves, and extolling the
glories of his buried ancestry. The
rude strains accompanying his im
passioned song resound through the
oaken chambers, and the wild enthu
siasm of the bard is communicated to
his listeners, which is manifested by
various demonstrations peculiar to the
j character and temperament of each.
And what is this but imitation ?
, The psalmist of old, speaks in praise
'of his master—his lord—but the holy
psalmist sits not in castle halls; his
seat is more lowly and humble, al
i though his themes are far more sub
'lime and exalted. The ballads of the
' olden time, however, possesses a most
pleasing charm—at least for us—
while the plaintiveness of their music
: calls up all the associations of our
’ youth, and the pleasing reminiscences
’of the domestic circle, and our “ain
fireside.” The music of the hearth,
' the old cricket—that ominous musi
! clan of the house comes in for a share
of our thoughts, and our boyhood
days. It is then we associate all those
dear and long-to-be remembered days,
when seated around the blazing hearth,
we have listened to the legends of oth
er times, commemorated in verse, al
though, not unlike the Barbara Allen
style, were, nevertheless, relished with
as much pleasure as if written by Sir
Walter Scott, himself. With the lat
ter, similar associations arise, but of a
more decided, yet more tender char
avler,the ballads of our infancy are]
i the tales of youthful affection—the 1
music of the cricket, the tales of our
, grandames. The chords of the one
1 may be broken—the sounds may die
away—and be remembered only “as
such tilings were”—but the other lives
iin our memory, when all that was
brighter and fairer shall have passed
away. No nation can be found in any
part of the world, more skilled in mu
i sic than were the ancient Irish. Irish
I historians contend that their country
'is the celebrated Hyperborean Isle,
1 and that music is the native produc
: tion of the soil. Erin is a large Island
i lying opposite the Celtoc, and iuhab
j ited by the Uy|ierboreans, The
i country is fruitful and pleasant, ded
j icated to Apollo, and most of the peo
ple, priests or songsters—Carabrenis
who was one of our earliest libellers,
was obliged to admit the perfection of
] the Irish, in tnuJc. After he had
I heard the minstrels, who attended the
Irish chieftains, at a banquet given to
! them in Dublin by Henry 11., he wrote
to one of his friends in England, as
| follows: “Os all nations within our
I knowledge, this is beyond comparison,
the chief in musical composition.”
When the celebrated Italian compo
ser, Gemiuiani, heard some pathetic
airs in London, he exclaimed, “Ha !
that is the music of a people that lost
their liberty I” I have heard nothing
so sweet and plaintive, and of such an
original turn, on this side of the Alps.
The celebrated Handel declared often:
“1 would rather be the author of Car
alous' “Ellen Aroon,” than of all my
own compositions.” Military music
made part of the studies of the Irish
warriors. It tilled them with courage
and a contempt of danger, and it was
Iby the help ot the military song they 1
sounded the charge rally, retreat, etc.
In the sixth century the Britons and
Welsh studied music under the Irish
nrofemors. in the college of Armenti-
WnT7*n "WMm Uteri so ro**., w. Viii-
vei»ity*tliat it was called “the great
School of the West of Europe.” Os
sian ba. the following beautiful pas
sage: “The music of Caryl is like the
memory of joys that are past, pleasing
mournful to the soul.”
The power of music on an invalid,
in many cases, has been known to ef
fect wonderful cures. Feeling the
pulse of a sick person, may be regu
lated by a knowledge of musical notes,
and we have no doubt but that this
valuable part of physic is best prac
tice 1 by those whose fingers have ac
quired a delicacy and precision of feel
ing, from being accustomed to touch
the chords of musical instruments.
An incident of which we know some
thing about may not be out of place
here. In a sick room—and who has
not experienced the agonizing feelings
and sufferings of one? There are ob
jects upon which the eye rests in mo
ments of “fitful dreams,” when pain
permits reason to roam at will, and
calls up the past and the pleasing as
sociations of early boyhood—when
health and strength go with usthrough
green fields and by meandering brooks
hand in hand. When hope shines
brightly before us, and the future is
all sunshine. There is a dreamy lux
ury even in the dark hours of a sick
room. During the prevalence of last
year’s epidemic in Memphis a man
finely believes that his life was saved
by a musical box. He was alone,
among strangers, and around him
were the dead and the dying; dark
forms and faces passed his couch, and
the cureless action of the physician in
his mechanical round told of a heart
as cold and as callous as liis climate
was warm. The mind could dwell on
nothing present. With him it was all
the past—all future; one effort -his
case was helpless—piles of ice
were around his head, and in his hand
he held a cup, the last prescription of
the doctor. He removed the ice from
hi* bend—he laid the cup on the table,
and drawing out from beneath the bed ;
a musical box, he wound it up. Soft
ly it «poke; its low tones swept along
gently; then came a louder strain, and
the beautiful air of “Molly Brown,'’
brought peace to his mind. The past,
liie present 'and the future seemed all
hts own. He changed the air—oh,
how cheering, yet sad it was. It
brought to his view the distant home—
the smile, the laugh, the fireside—all
were before him bright and beautiful.
“Home, Sweet Home,” lulled him to
sleep. He had a long refreshing
slumber, and in three days afterwards
be vas out. Would he part with that
box? No. Music's soft breath falls
on the quivering light.
A musical farce was performed at
the Opera House on Friday niglit test,
to which we will refer more fully next
Sumlay. We are particularly crowded
to-’hy with more pleasant matter.

termediate, High School and Collegiate Depart
ment; and thorough instruction under compe
tent teachers is given in the solid branches of '
education. At the same lime Music, French .

tention. Tlie Music Department is under the
direction of Professor John Kosrber, who is
well known throughout the South as the direc

graduate of the Conservatory of Music, Munich,
A college charter will soon be obtained from
the State, and Diplomas will be presented to
lull graduates and Certificates to irregulars at
the*close of the annr '1 session.

moved to the “Lannden House’' on Peachtree
street, —a location combining every advantage
of health, fine atmosphere, delightful neighbor
hood and convenience to the street car line.
