Solicitor of thia Clrcnit.
From the Sunday Gazette.
The Legislature that is to assemble this
fall should be composed of the best men in
the Democratic party. Under the new con
stitution the duty of electing judges at d
solicitors has been placed on them, and
taken away from the Governor. It is im
po.taut that the prosecuting officers of the
State should be men of integrity, ability
and fairness. In this circuit we learn Capt.
John Milledge will be a candidate for the
Solicitor Generalship, and it gives us pleas
me to bear testimony to his sterling worth
as a man, a citizen and a lawyer. His ser
vices to his State in the late unpleasantness
was distinguished by patriotism wot thy of
bis distinguished ancestry, and by gallantry
on many a hard fought battlefield, Since
then bis ability as a lawyer has been recog
nized by his brethren throughout the State.
In the administration of tbe onerous duties
of Recorder of this city he has been a terror
to evil doers, and crime has steadily de
creased. Atlanta owes it mainly to his ef
forts that she has so vigilant a police force,
for to him isdne the credit of reorganizing
it and putting it in effective shape.
If he is elected Solicitor of this circuit
Atlanta will be able to boast of one of the
best officers that is in this or any other
State. His time, energy and talents will be
devoted to the prosecution of the duties of
his c tfice.

Doomed to Silence.
The germ of a novel is contained in
events that occurred in a Russian towns
Twenty years ago, a church orgnnisn
stole the priest’s pistol, shot and robbed
a farmer, replaced the weapon in the
sacristy, confessed the crime to the
priest, whose lips were thus sealed upon
the subject, and then denounced him as
the robber and assassin. The unfortu
nate ecclesiastic, vainly protested his in
nocence, was sentenced to hard labor for
life. The organist on his death-bed con
fessed this crime, but when steps were
taken to secure the liberation of the in
nocent sufferer it was found that he had
been dead for several months. This
real-life tragedy fairly tames'the real
life comedy of the fine young English
gentleman who, having been arrested
for robbing a postoflice, married the
postmistress, the sole witness against
him, who was thus precluded from testi
fyini* against her husband.

During Louis Philippe’s reign and
the four following years, attempts were
made upon the life of Queen Victoria by
Oxford, in 1840, and by a workman
named Francis in 1842; upon the King
of Prussia, Frederick William IV., in
1844, and again in 1850; upon the pres
ent Emperor of Germany, then military
commander of Coblenz, in 1849; and
upon Isabella, Queen of Spain, in 1852.
None of these attempts succeeded. Ox
ford, who shot at Queen Victoria while
she was passing on Constitution , hill,
was clearly a lunatic, and was confined
to Bedlam as such. He remained there
about twenty-five years, and while in
confinement showed himself invariably
rational, working industriously as a car
penter, and expressing his deep remorse
whenever he was questioned about what
he termed his “ wicked piece of foolery.”
Oxford is alive still, but he is residing
out of England.
Not so Francis, the carpenter, who as
saulted the Queen in 1842, and made a
large wale on her face. This man died
shortly after he had been lodged in St.
Luke’s Bethlehem. He was unquestion
ably mad. Nevertheless, after this of
fense, Parliament passed a bill enacting
that flogging should be inflicted in the
future upon any one seeking to inflict
bodily harm upon the Queen, or to
threaten her. It was by virtue of this
act that the young fool O’Connor, who
leveled a pistol at the Queen in 1869,
was sentenced to be imprisoned for a
year, and to receive twenty strokes with
a birch. The Queen kindly remitted
the whole punishment, and caused the
boy to be supplied with funds that he
might t migrate to Australia. But, with
in less than a year after he hail been
shipped off to Southampton, O’Connor
returned to England, and was found
prowling within the precincts of Buck
ingham Palace at night, evidently with
evil intent. This time he was certified
to be out of his mind, and was sent to
an asylum, where he remained under
treatment four years. He is believed
now to be in New Zealand. — Cornhill.

A Curious Story.
There is a tale told of a sea Captain
who, in a distant corner of the southern
seas, visited an undiscovered or unex
plored group of beautiful islands. After
landing and trading with the gentle
natives, he was astonished by the visit of
a white man, evidently a person of means
and consequence, who, after making
himself very agreeable, implored the
Captain to give him a story-book, if he
had such a thing in his possession. The
Captain had, and, deeply touched by the
pigs and cocoanuts which the white
exile had given him, bestowed on him a
copy of the “Arabian Nights Entertain
ments.” Overcome by the present, the
exile burst into tears, and cried, “You
have saved my life, and given me rank
and wealth.” On explanation, he said,
“I should long ago have been eaten, but
while they were fattening me I learned
enough of their language to tell a child
the story of ‘Little Red Riding Hood.’
The child repeated it, and the whole
population were mad with joy. They
hail never heard a story before. From
that day I became a great and honored
man. When they had a national festival
I sat on top of a hill, and thousands
wept (while some elderly relative was
being cooked for a feast) at the cruel
death of the grandmother as caused by
the wicked wolf. I had with me a vol
ume of ‘Fairy Tales,’ and I soon began
to set a price on my performances. ‘Red
Riding Hixxl’ is rather worn; I only get
a hundred cocoanuts for her now; but
‘Cinderella’ is still good for four pigs and
a turtle, and ‘Beauty and the Beast’
blings six or seven, according to the
quality. But with the ‘Arabian Nights’
1 shall be able to go on accumulating
pork to the end of my days.”
I am warm —fan me with a few
old hats and let me dye—them.

Dr C. J. Moffett — Dear Sir —Enclosed
you will find fifty cents. Please send me
another package of Teethina The first
package had such a happy result that I
heartily recommend it to all mothers, as
being all that a mother needs for a teeth
ing babe. My babe was one of those little
nervous creatures —-never sleeping more
than fifteen or twenty minutes at a time
After giving the powder it quieted his
nerves and now he sleeps long naps.
Please send as soon as pos.-ible, and oblige.
Mrs. S. E. Wagnon.
The latest from the Senate —send
old hats to Bussey for repairs.
