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. Bounding Forward. 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. — .Baltimore American. .——e »■ 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 longer " To ‘i 1 s’" tlon. * 4 ’*’ | In about ten days we shall issue our third great edition of 10,000 copies. We beg to'call the special attention of advertisers to the fact that our regular standing advertisements go through all the special editions, getting the benefit of these without any extra charge. CARRIAGE FACTORY. 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 his business. 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 amount. 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. THE CELEBRATED IM er c k Truss!
