This thing has started out exactly
right. Kenny, and those engaged in his
kind of traffic, are the very men who are
duty bound to provide for the widows
and orphans of this and every other
land. For their damnable trade in spirits
is the prime cause of seven tenths of the
charity objects in the world, being in
their present condition.
Yes, for every barrel of ale or lager
sold, they can have the satisfaction of
knowing that a destitute widow, perhaps,
is thrown upon the cold charity of the
world. The bottles upon their shelves,
are as so many tickets of admission to
the regions of despair. The barrels ar
rayed in their cellars should remind
them of so many death-bed scenes of
their unfortunate victims.
Hurrah for Kenny, indeed! We can
excuse this from a public journal, when
be has pei formed a deed of charity—
but then let us ismember that Kenny is

his duty practically, leCaJise he is one of

Editor Times: —All us space in your Valua
ble paper to suggest the name of Col. Daniel
S. I RiNTur, of I loyd, as a suitable candidate
for Congress. We have known him long and
well, and know him to be eminently qualified
to fill the position, and can take his seat if
elected, as nig disabilities have been removed
by Congress. He has taken no part in poli
tics, but has devoted his time and talents to
building up our section of the country, and
to-day have more influence in Congress and
with the capitalists of the North, than any
man in Cherokee Georgia, consequently
could secure more legislation in favor of our
section than any man we could send there;
yea, more than any two. One reason is. ho
is not an extremist, but an honest and con
sistent man, and a man of more than ordina
ry information and talent—— a representative
man. We do hope that he may secure the
nomination and be elected, for we feel that
he would be the right man in the right place.
Let ug act wisely and for the good of our
District, and not for any man. We can’t af
ford to do otherwise. Yours, &e.,

Mr. O’Neal, of Lowndes, asked if
there had not always been a militia law
in this State, * except when prohibited
by the recent act of Congress.
Mr. Bryant answered that he did not
know, and argued that in case of a con
flict between the races it would be ne
cessary to have an organized military
body, and this hill only proposes to
change the code so as to make it con
form to the constitution.
Mr.- Duncan argued that there is no
necessity for the hill, because the con
stitution gives every man the right to
bear arms, and whenever it conflicts
with the code the former must prevail;
that there is no use for a militia organ
ization, and, therefore, he moved an
indefinite postponement of the whole
Mr. Turnipseed offered a resolution
providing that hereafter the House with
a view to an early adjournment hold two
sessions each day, from 10 a. m. to 1 p.
m., and from 3 p. m. to 5 p. m., which
resolution was adopted.
Mr. Lane offered a resolution provid
ing that this session shall not extend
longer than the Ist of October, unless
by a two thirds vote of both branches of
the General Assembly, and then not
beyond the ten'll day of October.
Pending a Mote on this resolution ft j
was discovered that there was no quorum
in the House.
J&S'” The following is the reply of
Superintendent Blodgett to the letter of
E. W. Cole, President of the Nashville
& Chattanooga Railroad, calling his at
tention to the bad condition of the road,
and urging the importance of its being
placed in good order:
Atlanta, Qa. Aug., 29, 1870.
Colonel E. li. Cole, President , &c. :
My Dear Sir : In response to your
esteemed favor of the 25th inst., I would
say that I fully appreciate the force of
the suggestions you are pleased to make
in reference to the condition of this road,
and that I am still doing everything in
my power to put the road in first class
To this end almost the entire net
earnings of the road have been expend
ed in payment of contracts for material
and stock made by my predecessor, and
in the purchase of new iron, rolling
stock, motive power and equipments for
the road ordered by myself. But for
these necessary expenditures I would
have been able to make larger payments
into the State Treasury than, perhaps,
have been made for years past, as the*
business of the road has been larger than
These expenditures have enabled me
to put the road in better condition than
it was last year; but there is, as you
suggest, much yet to be done in order
to meet the demands of trade.
There is some forty odd miles of the
road that requires new iron; the safety
of the road demands this, and I hope to
be able to supply it soon. We also need
at least 250 additional freight cars, and
at least five more first-class freight en
gines. These, in addition to the repairs
of bridges and road bed. which you sug
gest, will require additional heavy out
lays of money; and in view of the heavy
payments made, and to be made, for re
and stock contracted for by my
predecessor, and those I have thought
necessary to make, it will be impossible
to put the road in first-class condition,
and supply it with sufficient rolling
stock and motive power to do the heavy
business anticipated by you this fall,
: without an appropriation by the State
j for that purpose.
Jhe Joint Committee of our Legisla
ture, appointed t 0 investigate the affairs
of the road, recommended in their re
port to the Legislature, an appropriation
at once, for putting the road first-class
condition; and a bill, as I learn, has
been introduced for that purpose.—
Should the recommendation of the com
mittee be promptly acted upon, I hope !
to be able to place the road in a con
dition second to that of no railway in
the United States, and consequently, in
a condition to keep clear of all “ freight j
blockades ” during the ensuing season. ;
Thanking you for your timely sug- I
gestionis, and with sentiments of great j
esteem. I remain yours very respectfully, j
Foster Blodgett. j
Will France Submit ?—Views
of a French Liberal.
A great nation does not readily ac
; quiesce in the necessity of taking a
| lower place in the hierarchy of European
j Powers than that to which she has been
j accustomed, and the very best terms
which I ranee could at this moment gain
j from Prussia would involve this much
jof degradation. Nothing that Lord
| Granville could propose could save her
; from this necessity, and there is not
I much chance that she would accept
mediation if coupled with the condition
of submitting to it. Even if we are
over-estimating the perseverance and
resolution of the French people in
attributing to them this determination
to go on fighting, we can hardly be
wrong in supposing that they would
only regard peace in the light of a
breathing space in which to prepare to
fight the battle over again with better
fortune and a different result. There is
no talk in France of the war having
been a mistake ; all we hear of is that it
was a mistake to enter upon it so un
prepared. Take, for example, the fol
lowing extract from the “ Chronique ”
in the new number of the Revue des
3 his war with Prussia was certainly
inevitable. It must have broken out
some day or other, and we will even
venture to say that the late events have
made its inevitableness still more appar
ent by reducing us so promptly to the
-UrW: and by bringing into relief
the weakness of our frontier—a weak
ncoo nlroaUy vory creat under the con
ditions of the treaties of 1815, and still
greater since 1866, when Prussia pres
ses on us with the weight of the whole
of Germany, bound together in a mili
tary union. These events have shown
by sinister evident where was the ag
gressive force, the permanent menace.
Thus the war was one of those terrible
contingencies which we were bound to
foresee, which we could not decline at a
given moment; but it was above all ne
cessary to know whether we were pre
pared, and, if we were not ready, it was
needful to know how to wait. Every
thing depended on that. * * **
War doubtless has its hazards of which
no one is master. In so great a strug
gle reverses may happen; but when one
knows the cause of them they are half
repaired, they cease to be a reason for
discouragement, and become, on the
countrary, an energetic stimulant.—
Henceforth France, fortified by ex
perience, can fight before Europe, who
watches her; she can march to the con
flict with a manly confidence because
she feels her force, because she knows
that her banner is that of the civilization
and liberty of peoples.
1 hus in the opinion of so moderate
and sensible a Liberal as M. Charles de
Mazadc, the result of the war up to this
time has only been to show that some
addition of territory on the side of Ger
many is absolutely necessary to the
safety of France. No doubt the chain
of reverses may be so heavy and so un
broken that she may at least be driven
into acknowledging that her former
greatness is lost beyond the possibility
of recall. But Prussia has a good deal
to do before that period of exhaustion is
reached, and even when it is reached
)'i $1 not Liadily believe that
ill not be content, to remain at it.
The Chinese Massacre.
A special correspondent gives the de
tails of the atrocious Chinese massacre
of the French and Russian residents at
Ticn-Tsin, China. It appears that the
responsibility of the horrible butchery
rests entirely with the Chinese author
ities; that the mob were not only incited
by the Chinese Governor of the Province,
but frequently urged to commit the
atrocities. Their ignorance and super
stition were worked upon by most re
markable means, and the official publi
cations taught them to believe that for
eigners were in Tien-Tsin to kidnap
women and children, with the design of
killing them and converting their bodies
into drugs. A mob held possession of
the French settlement, maltreating all
foreigners who were abroad for two days
before any blood was shed, and the Gov
ernor not only did not restrain or dis
perse it, but he even permitted his sol
diers to encourage and aid it. It was
not until the riot was three days old
that the French Consul was killed in
the Governor’s Palace and the wholesale
Ihe Rev. Mr. Stanrie and family, of
Cincinnati, occupied one of the missions,
but as he chanced to be absent at the
time, Mrs. Stanrie and Miss Thompson
found refuge on board the steamer Mon
chu, and thus doubtless escaped a ter
rible fate. It is asserted that over two
hundred Chinese were massacred by the
mob. It is charged that Chunghow,
the Mandarin or Governor of the Pro
vince, stood by and witnessed the mas
; sacre without attempting to prevent it,
and a/so that J. Q. T. Meadows, Ameri
can Consul at Tien-Tsin, was in Com
pany with Chunghow all the time and
did.nothing to prevent tins twniUa exit
rage, ‘although he, as an officer of the
Chinese Government, had enough power
and influence to prevent it. The Em
peror of China appointed Chunghow a
special minister to this outrage, and has
| appointed Meadows as secretary and
I interpreter to accompany Chunghow.—

a grfss insult, and call on the French
and Russian Governments to resent it.
