In the Suite elections held up to
the Bth of November, the Democrats
had twelve members of Congress in the
Fortieth Congress, seventeen in the For
ty-first, and will have twenty-niue in the
Forty-second or next Congress. The
Republicans had sixty-eight in the For
tieth, sixty-seven in the Forty-first, and
will have fifty-one in the Forty second.
This shows which organization is on the
increase and which ou the decrease.
Atlanta Daily Constitution. —
For live journalism, this splendid daily
now stands in the front rank of South
ern papers. The Constitution has re
ecntly purchased anew and beautiful
outfit, and is uow an admirable specimen
of newspaper printing. Its gallant edi
tor wielded his sword with telling effect,
and so he does his pen. Its local is one
of the liveliest men in the Gate City—
if not the prettiest. Its proprietors are
energetic, go-ahead fellows, and, alto
gether the Const'tution is a *%eavy
team.” Success to it.

The New Candidate.
It will be seen by a correspondence
i in another column, that Mr. Robert
1 Garlingfcon has been prevailed upon by
some of our citizens to become a candi
date for Representative in the next
Legislature. From tlie tone (f the letter
and the character of the man. we cannot
accord to him any intense 1 evil to th?
party to which he acknowledges allegi
ance; but we have a few friendly words
for those of our frinds who have been
instrumental in bringing him out.
In the outset, we would urge our peo
ple not to suffer personal relations to be
interrupted by the discussion of political
Asa public journalist, and aiming to
advance the public interests of the coun
try. we are aligned with the Democratic
party —believing it to be most likely to
accomplish this end. Hence, we shall
strive to uphold the action of that party,
as long as it is consistent with reason ;
and frown down all efforts to disinte
grate and destroy the harmony of the
party —no matter in what spirit these
efforts may be made.
The editor of this piper having been
a delegate to the county convention,
which nominated Col. J. C. Fain, feels
called upon, as a consistent man, and a
true Democrat, to abide the nomination,
and carry out the wish of the party, as
expressed through the action of that
Col. Fain being the choice of a large
majority of the convention, and this
large majority now holding that their
nomination was legitimate and fair, with
due deference to the opinions of our
friends in the minority, we arc deter
mined to fight it out on this line—feel
ing satisfied that if Radicalism 'gains
anything by this partial split in the
Democratic party, the nominee and his
adherents will not be the responsible

We have heard it asserted that if the

Railroad Collision. —From the
Macon Telegraph we that a collis

wick Road on Saturday morning, thir
teen miles from Macon. Two men were
killed and one or two seriously wounded.
Both engines were smashed up and sev
eral cars torn to peiccs.
The two young men who were killed
leaped of! the engine into the mud and
water and were crushed by the cars fall

upon young Foster’s body, that it took
from early in the morning until 1 o’clock,
P. M. to recover it, Ihe freight was. of

I learn from undoubted sources on ,
the streets, that Robt, Garlingt n. Esq.
has determined to run as an independ
ent candidate for the lower branch of
the General Assembly, against the duly
nominated candidate, J. C. Fain. lam j
informed that he pretends to come be
fore the people at the request of* many
citizens. I want to know who these j
many citizens are; .and would ask. Mr. i
Editor, if they are not four or five d!s
affected depmerats ? Is not their oppo
sition based wh illy upon the idea that
their greedy ambition was foiled when,
on the 24th of September, the people’s
delegates declared that J. 0. Fain was
their choice, and the choice of the true
democracy, which they represented ?
Tt is quite true that some good men.
who were before the convention have
taken the field for the nominee, and have
shown their manhood by standing firm
ly by the nomination—though they may
have desired it themselves.
I was present at the nomination, and
saw it all. Every Democrat who came
to that convention (3(3 in number) was
duly appointed by his respective militia
district, to represent the Democracy of
his District —and did it.
One or two and 'legations, as can be
proven, declared they would not abide
the result of the convention, unless the
man of their choice was nominated. Is
that true democracy ?
The convention met. The two-thirds
rule was adopted. On the first billot,
Col. Fain—though he had stated to the
convention, in a manly way, that he did
not desire the nomination, unless it was
clearly the will or the people, through
their delegates, and 'that he had nev r
canvassed the county lor it, but would
be proud to represent them, if they saw
proper to nominate him—received of
the thirty six votes, twenty two.
This majority was such that it was
moved that he be declared the nominee
of* the party by acclamation. The mo
tion was carried, and he was so declared
by the presiding officer.
Some not understanding the motion,
but every one voting who was opposed
t> Fain, thirty-two of the thirty six del
egates voted —only nine against him—
giving Fain five votes over the two
thirds of* those voting.
Now, what I desire to state more par
ticularly, is this: If there had been an
other b illot, Fain would have received
twenty six votes, beyond all doubt—
and lam willing, and can give the
names of each one over their own sig
natures, if the belters or scratchers do
I have never, in all my life, seen a
fairer nomination ; and never before, in
Gordon county, saw the will of the peo
ple more fully represented.
Now, L Would say to the disaffected
parties, if* they are true Democrats, they
arc compelled to acknowledge that their
opposition to the organization makes
against the true interests of that party.
Look well. Democrats of Gordon
county, to what might be the result of*
this opposition. Ido believe, most can
didly, that the course of the dis (Feeted
will aid and abet the opp sit ion, though
there may be no such intention.
Tt is well known, that Mr. Garlington
will barely be a citizen of Gord n coun
ty, with all the privileges of the elec
tive franchise, when the election comes
off—he having lived elsewhere until re
cently. A man’s domicil determines his
citizenship and eligibility.
Democrats, stand firm by your organ
ization. Lot no bolting or scratching
deter you or drive y >u from our regu
larly nominated candidate.
The fallowing, relative to the amend
ed stamp laws, may be of service to some
of our readers :
Ist. An instrument issued unstamped
at a time when and in a place where no
collection district was established, may
be stamped by the party who issued it,
or by any party having an interest there
in. at any time prior to January Ist.
1872, and the legal effect of the stamp
thus affixed will be the same as though
affixed by the proper collector.
2d. In the case of* instruments issued'
unstamped, or insufficiently stamped,
since the establishment of* the collection
district, the collector is authorized to
affix the necessary stamp upon payment
if th) price of the stamp required by
law, a penalty of and mble the amount re
maining unpaid, hut in no case less than
five dollars, and where the whole amount
of the tax denoted by the stamp required
shall exceed the sum of fifty dollars, up
on payment also of interest at the rate
of six per centum on said tax from the
day on which such stamp ought to have
The c Hector is also authorized by the
amended law to remit the penalty at any
time from July 14th, 1870. to August
Ist. 1572. in all eases where it shall be
shown to his satisfaction that the instru
ment presented him was issued with ut
the necessary stamp by reason of acci
dent, inadvertence or urgent necessity,
and without any wilful design to defraud
the United States of the duty, or to
evade or delay the payment thereof.
3d. Where an instrument thus stamp
ed has been recorded, it should either be
recorded anew, or the fact that the error
has been corrected should be noted upon
the margin ofotlie record.

The November elections have result
ed very satisfactory to the Democrats of
the country. A gain of thirty-two Re
presentatives in Congress, in spite of
the negro vote and Presidential inter
ference, is solid encouragement tithe
'• utiterrified ’ to push on the revolu
tion. There is no and -übt that n great
revoluti n in p ilitical sentiment is tak
ing place. We see manifestations of it
in every section of the country. We
see it in the newspapers, hear it from j
the stump, in fact it is visible every
where. It is a revolution that is des
tined, like an irresistible tidal wave, to j
sweep over the country, and it will
sweep men out of place and out of
power who do not fall in with the regu
lar current. Asa first evidence that
this revolution is thoroughly practical,
wo have, as stated above, a gain of
thirty-two Democratic Congressmen, be
sides several moderate, anti-prospective
liber and Republicans who will refuse to
sanction further radical legislation.—
Further than th*s. wo have some States
given overto the Deuvcracy that hither
to. since the war have been Republican,
while Missouri Ins given an overwhelm
ing majority against radictlism. The
great redaction of Republican majority
in Illinois, is almost as satisfactory ns
the gain of any other State. On the
whole the Democrats, especially the
Conservatives, hive cause for cheerful
feelings. Another two years will pro
bably give them the majority in Con
gress. and perhaps the President. Ver
ily. political matters are growing inter

A of Muh Thieves Bro
On Friday night last at a late hour a
mule lot of Messrs. Holmes & Clay, of
this city, was entered by three thieves
and a drove of nine mules belonging to
a Mr. Baer st den therefrom. The
villainy ws not and scavered until the
next morning, when runners were sent
in different directions to look for the
mules. Four of them were found near
Thompson's Factory, south of town,
grazing about on the common, as they
had get to running about after th y
were taken out of the 1 it and refused to
follow the leader, and the thieves being
in too great a hurry left them and went
on with only five of the stolen drove.
Mr. Clay then put upon the tracks of
the rascals two faithful colored attend
ants ab'Ut the stable—-Wm. Smith and
Larry Thomas—with instructions to fol
low the i in the direction of* Forsyth.
On arriving there Smith telegraphed
back to arrest John Richardson and a
man named Green, that he (Smith) was
on the trail and that the thieves, with
the mules, were making for Atlanta.—
Wh en the two colored men got to At- I
lanta, they immediately called to their
aid the assistance of the police, who
cordially j ined in the pursuit, and it
was not long before the mules aud three
of the rascals were arrested and lodged
in jail. The mules were identified by
having an inverted “B ” branded on
the jaw. Mr. C. C. Clay was sent to
Atlanta, and telegraphed back yesterday
that he had all the mules and thieves
and would be down with them this
morning on the 1.30 train.
Mr.-J. J. Clay arrested, early yester
day morning, the man Green, above
aliud.;d to, who is a one legged man.—
He says he was deceived by the pirties
who stole the mules; that they proposed
to go a duck hunting, and after going
with them a few miles from town, on the
Forsyth road, he found that he was do
eeived and returned to the city. Rich

lai ge.— Macon Teugraph.

Chicago, Oct. 2(3 —Mr. Lcckie. a lead

the outside of the building to the t p of

turning off the faucet. This tub. which
supplies all the hot water used in the

foci deip and ab >ut the same diameter,

Through some mistake on the part of
Mr. Lcckie. his foot slipped, and lie was
precipitated into the steaming cauldron,
lie managed to seize the stones on the
top of the tank, and cried for help, which
soon arrived and extricated him from
his horrible predicament. Medical aid
was immediately summoned, but his in- J
juries were too severe for rccavcry, and j

he expired yesterday morning at five ;

The Uncertainty of Negro
The New Orleans Tims adds its
; voice to the gen -nil complaint which is
coming from ull parts a i the country of
tiie scarcity of labor just at a period
I when, in the economy of the planter, it
!ism st needed. 1 here seems t>be no
i scorehy of negroes. Quite the reverse.
But they are n t in the humor for w ok.
j and ne amount oi coaxing can put them
in the cotton pi stations where their
| services are now most sadly needed.—
| This evil, fortunately. will create its
own remedy—and the impracticable
Congo will be compelled to give place
to the available and efficient •• heathen
Chinee.” The T. me: gays:
i here is a universal complaint from
the country of the difficulties of getting
hands to pick cotton. All the plan tors
are behind. f lhere never was a more
favorable season; never more eitt n
ready to be picked, and never so much
difficulty in inducing the negroes to
*mru out and gather the fleecy wealth.
One of our large cotton factors, recently
from Arkansas, rep iris th it the fields in
uvery and rectum have the appearance of j
the Northern prairies after a heavy fall !
of snow. The reluctance of the hands
to turn out and pick is ascribed to the
low price of cotton. They have gene
rally got in debt t> the extent of their
shares in the Crop nr more, and imagine
that any further labor on their pirt will
be for the benefit of their creditors.—
1 his they c 1 11 working fr a dead
horse,” and prefer to move off to some
place where they can begin anew and
get advances up m their prospective
wages. The effects of this will be a
great reduction in the yie’J of the
season, which promised to be an un
usually iarg-e one. If two thirds of the
open h 'Ms could be picked, the crop
would be a very large one. But there j
is no h pc whatever of such a result.—
Soon unusually soon, the picking will
be over, and a vest amount of valuable
staple will be left to perish in the fields.
The unusually date autumnal rains will
destroy many millions of and liars of this
great (dement of wealth and necessity of
civilized mankind. All of which ought
to admonish us still more forcibly of
the great need of some other c mipotitivc
and rival 1 b .r, that will enable our
planters to fulfill their great mission of
producing a supply cf this article equal
to the and jmand of the world.

V. e are willing to and > anything in our
power to give general currency to the
correspondence between the resigning
Secret iry of the Interior and the Presi
dent of tire United States. In it the
Radical administrate n is painted by two
of its members. We have versified
these letters, ho that they may be easily
committed to memory:
COX TO GRANT
I <lo not choose to rob the notion:
Nor lot rogues <lo it in my name.
Fo I'll resi;. n my present station,
An 'i keep. at least, an honest fame.
Your ‘ managers” are knaves: you know it;
And sol waste no words to show it.
GRANT TO COX.
Farewell, my honest friend ; good luck
Attend you in private station.
I mod a man who'll cheat and truck
With knaves—in my administration.
