ATLANTA, GA., MARCH 22, 1879.
AN ANTAGONIST OF STEPHENS.
Dr. 11. Von Holst, the German his-1
torian, compeer of Alex. 11. Stephens, j
ami De Tocqueville, was a visitor in
Atlanta during the past week. Dr.
Von Holst has already completed two
701nmes of bis’lfconstitutional History
if the I’nitrtl States, and the two
concluding volumes are in the process
of preparation. His history is valti-j
able and interesting, furnishing an ■
idea of the light in which a foreigner, |
a citizen of the German Empire, re
gardsour republican institutions.
They are, however, extremely par
tisan. His views, particularly on the
States Right question, as set forth in
his first volume, are directly antago
nistic to those of our own statesman
and historian Alexander 11. Stephens.
His strongest argument against the
theory finds its source in Patrick
Henry’s speech; t hat we are no longer
citizens of Massachusetts, of Connec
ticut, etc., but citizens of America,
and from this speech Dr. Von Holzt
opposes Stages Rights down to the
outbreak of the wr.
In ridiculingnhe readiness with
■which the Americans change from
onesfde of the question to the other,
Dr. Von Holst cites that Mr. Stephens
remarked on the eve of the outbreak
of the war, that the success and per
manency of our republic was assured.
The next morning, says the German
historian, A. 11. Stephens, accepted
the vice-presidency of the Confedera
cy. We can only say in this connec
tion, that had Dr. VaffJHolst under
stood either Mr. Stfljmens or the
Southern people, this remark would
never'havc found a [dace in his history.
It is to be hoped that his visit among
the Southern people will eradicate
from his system some of the Radical
principles that have been so strongly
imbued into them.
The rapid growth of Atlanta is a mat
ter of pride, not only to its citizens,
but to the State. If it is not already,
it soon will be, the undisputed me
tropolis of the South. Its commercial
business, as is well known, is increas
ing almost magically. In a casual
talk with Mr. Antony Murphy, the
man to whose foresight of her growth
and consequent necessity, Atlanta
owes her system of water works more
perhaps than to any other, he ex
pressed an increased faith in a future
even brighter than the past. Mr. J.
C. Peck; the great builder
who has erected so many
of our finest structures remarked
to us that the building pros
pects are very fine. In this view Mr.
B. H. Broomhend & W.W. McAfee, exten
sive manufacturers of brick'and leading
builders concur, and they have already
much work on hand. This indeed is
the general statement. There is no
doubt that Atlanta will make this year
another great stride onward, and our
population will leap forwar 1 a long way
toward the 50,000 v e shall soon have.
A Celestial Visitor Approaching.
A cometis approaching the earth,
and can be seen with a telescope. It
moves in an elliptical orbit, with a pe
riod of five and a half years, and its
first appearance was’ noted only
thirty-three years ago, audits present
appearance is the seventh time that it
has been recorded. It will be nearest
the earth on the 10th of April, at a
computed distance of about seventy
five million of miles, so that there is
not the slightest prospect of a collision.
It has never receded from the earth
much farther than the planet Jupiter.
In 1851 it escaped observation, but in
1857 it was seen rising in the extreme
southern horizon, reaching a bright
ness bringing it within easy observa
tion with an opera glass, and finally
disappeared in the northern sky. —
A Chicago man in the first stages of insanity
killed his roommate for making faces in his
sleep. “He annoyed me terribly,” the homi
tide explained, "and I couldn't stand it any

N. C. Spence, 47 Decatur Street.
We have been recently Hpenkfng much of the
various industries and business enterprises of
A tlimta. Among them one of the most promi-
Bent is the carriage factory of N C Spence, on
Decatur street, which was expressly erected
for him. Here arc manufactured carriages,bug
gies, express wagons, drays, etc. On entering
we found the different shops full of busy
workmen, and of finished and unfinished
work. We were somewhat surprised to find
such fine specimens of carriages, buggies, pony
pha tons and other vehicles, not excelled in
quality and style in any market, by the work
of the best makers anywhere. Mr. S. is him
self a workman of 20 years’ experience, and
devotes his whole time to personal direction
and inspection of all his work, thereby being
enabled to guarantee it to be as represented.
We can without hesitancy recommend him to
any ore needing work in his line and he is
well known as a reliable, competent man in
Dr. IJ. M. Woolley’s Opium Antidote.
We certainly ask attention to Dr.
B. M. Woolley’s card and certificate
in this issue. Such telling factssbould
not be overlooked by those interested
and there are many. Although but
few are aware that this terrible habit
of using opium to excess is rapidly
increasing, it is, we are sorry to say,
an actual fact.
But to those who have become its
slave, we say cheer up. To our per
sonal knowledge this is but one of
thousands of instances in which Dr.
W. has made effectual cures by his
justly celebrated antidote. Unsolic
ited certificates and letters from all
parts of the country can be seen at his
office, many from leading citizens and
physicians well known to the general
public. Five years ago Mr. W. came
to our city and soon after began the
manufacture of the celebrated anti
dote; but this being an age for the
production of humbugs, the public
were, as he supposed, pretty suspi
cions. He, however, knowing full
well its great curative qualities, was
content to lot it go on actual merits.
Thus, one by one, patients were treat
ed and permanently cured. Then, as
if by magic, the news spread from
coast to coast, and to day there is not
a state in the Union but to which
large quantities are sent, and even to
foreign countries. Convincing evi
dence of these facts can be seen at his
handsome offices and labratory, No.
35 Whitehall street. Several interest
ing pamphlets have been issued by
him, containing va’uable information
concerning the effects of this drug.etc.,
and in a few days a book containing
several interesting stories and statisti
cal notes on the opium habit and its
cure, also certificates from many of
the leading citizens and physicians in
various sections of the United States
will be issued and mailed to any on
receipt of 10 cents for postage, al
though well worth ten times the
The doctor has recently brought,
out a modified preparation of the opi
urn antidote for the cure of drunken
ness, and is meeting witli marked suc
cess. It is witn sincere pleasure we
i record these facts as there is some
thing admirable in the quiet,unassum
ingyet determined course of Mr. Wool
ley. He has ever kept himself in the
background, made no pretentions to
self laudation, has ever seemed to ex
pect criticism, and lias sought rather
than shunned investigation, relying
solely upon demonstrated facts, and
the good character he has ever
bornefrom childhood up. To establish
faith in himself ns well as his remedy,
, lie made no war upon the regular
practitioners or the profession, nor
tried in the least to push or force him
self upon them or others. Yet lie
is now recognized by all liberal, hon
est and just-minded people as a great
benefactor, and doing a noble woi k for
the suffering. The evidences of the
success of his remedy, and gentle
manly and able treatment of patients,
can tie seen. Hundreds of persons
are effectually cured and daily walk
ing about the streets of our city, to
say nothingof the hundreds who come
here from distant points for treatment,
are cured and quietly go home re
joicing. Every citizen alive to the
prosperity of the Gate city, should
feel proud of and interested in the
success of this live man and his enter
prise, not only as a public benefactor,
but in a business point of view, as
many thousands of dollars are annu
ally brought to and expended in the
city by his patients while here.
These facts are too well known to
need further comment.
