Mr. Editor :—Dear Sir—l received to-day, from
the hand of a friend, your paper of the 17 th in
stant, in which I find a notice that I had joined
the Mormons 1 I had heard before that the same
report had appeared in other papers in Georgia,
and had been contradicted through two Savannah
papers. It is humiliating to think that any South
ern man, should be so base as to report such an in
famous falsehood! It is, however, upon a par
with other reports injurious to my character, which
have been circulated in Georgia for the last six or

false, and unfounded in every sense 1 I am still

For myself; I care very little about such reports,
as they are false, they will soon or later recoil upon
the heads of their authors; but my innocent and
injured family are the sufferers.
I will close this by wishing the slanderer and his
pious aids, more honest and honorable employment.

“ A Setting on a Rail ”
A gentleman by the name of Leech— we do not
know whether be was a horse-leech or not—having
made very free here the other day in instructing
the adored institution in the doctrines of liberty,
.equality and fraternity, was taken up by some of
-cur citizens and dealt with according to the practi
cal teachings of his own doctrine. Our very wor
thy citizens, thinking it easier to lamp-black him,
being only one man, than to white-wash all the ne
groes proceeded in this manner to evince their con-
Version to the principles of Mr. Leech as contain
gained in a declaration on his part to a big, black
«egro that lie, (the negro,) was equal to, and just
„ free as he, (Leech-) After treating Mr. Leech
to several ridings upon a rail, which was said to bo
an inch plank turned edgewise, “the boys" next
day formed a battle line, and with muskets and
drum marched the gentleman, now made a color

the cars. Leech is an Irish well-digger, and should
fee taken care of wherever he goes, as he uses
the opportunities lie has in working with slaves to
inatihpoison into their minds.

Fine for an Editor-
The editor of the Savannah Jmrnal & Courier
has a friend in Lowndes “as is a friend,” us the
following epistle will show. We dure any of our
friends in Lowndos to extend to ns an invitation to
go down there to fish aud hunt.
The letter is dated March 2t>tli, and runs thus:
“ We have had some very cool weather during
the past week. The ground has been frozen hard
and the corn and many garden vegetables have
been killed. The past winter was the coldest over
experienced in this part of Georgia, even by the
oldest inhabitant, and the cold weather has contin
ued unusually late in the Spring. In consequence
of this, great numbers of cattle have perished, aud
the planters are behind hand with their crops.
“Yet in spite of the continued cool weather the
woods are teeming with almost every variety of
flowers and the air is full of their blended sweot
ness. I had no idea that Southern Georgia could
deck herself in the Spring in half the charms in
which she is already clad. Such beauty, variety
aud profusion of wild flowers I never before be
hind. Yet each succeeding snn adds anew beauty,
an unexpected grace and increasing loveliness.
Visit us in April if you wish to soe the most
charming country you ever beheld.
“ My friend do you take pleasure in the sports
once so dear to the heart of good old Isaac Wal
ton ? If you ever felt a sympathetic emotion with
the long line of anglers who have suffered and bob
bed for the credit of the cause and the glory of a nib
ble, just throw aside your labor for one week,
come to your friends in this part of Georgia and
you shall be made gloriously happy for once, in
spite of printer’s devil and devilish subscribers. I
lay it down as an indisputable proposition that no
fisherman ever emigrated from this region or ever
will desire so to do, unless it bo to catch golden fish
in the silver basins of Paradise. We have the
most beautiful streams forangling in Georgia. The
Withlacoochee is unsurpassed for trout, pike, brim,
eat, mullet, perch, and a variety of others too te
dious to mention. But the best sport is to bo had
on our beautiful little lakes—the waters of which
for the most part are as clear as crystal. In the
lower part of Lowndes there arc many of these,
situated at convenient distances from each other
and abounding in fish of almost every name and
description. The largest of these is the *• Ocean
Pond.” It is about four miles long by two miles
broad, and is surrounded by others of smaller di
mensions. In this region the soul of the weary
fisherman can be at rest. Hither may come the
unlucky spirits of departed anglers from the days
of Sir Isaac to the present time, and in their
shadowy skiffs skim our glassy waters and ply the
angler’s art forever and forever more.
“ Now, my friend, if in addition to the sport of
the angler we can furnish you with a plenty of
game, such as deer, wild hogs, and turkeys in
abundance, what further inducement need we of
fer ? If you are fond of exciting sport we can
give you a chase after a wild cat, and if you are
very hard to please, we might satisfy your adven
turous soul with a bear or tiger-hunt. This morn
ing a gentleman proffered to board me for two
months if I would only shoot the wild turkeys out
of his field each morning before sun rise, —and last
Friday evening a big buck met a lazy* man in the
road about one hundred and fifty yards from his
(the lazy man’s) house and waited until the lazy
man could return to his house, load his gun and go
back and shoot him. It seems ihat the buck had
found out that the man was too lazy to hunt him
so that his only chance to get shot was to go to the
lazy man’s dwelling. So he went and it is pre
sumed for that purpose. What a country for lazy
men 1 Come down and dwell with us, my friend.”
* [The writer himself no doubt; who is desirous
of the presence of another, equally lazy, to keep
him in countenance. Hence his pressing invita
tion. We only wish we could accept it!—Ed.]
Shakespeare’s Deer Stealing.
Malone, it is known, threw three
doubts on the fact of Shakespeare’s
deer-stcaling in his early days, there
by offending the poets’ admirers, inso
much as otherwise the bard’s attack
upon Lucy of Woodcote seemed unac
countable ; and the reason he gave was
that the offence could not have been
committed, inasmuch as Sir Thomas
Lucy, so Malone averred, had no deer
walk to be poached upon; but time,
the settler of all things, has set the
matter, as well as the commentator,
right ; for it appears from a record of
those wu - sent presents to Chancellor
Ellesmere, when he entertained Queen
Elizabeth at his seat at Harefield, that
among the givers of buck on the occa
sion was the aforesaid Sir Thomas.—
Tnis corroboration of the poet’s deer
stealing is now on veritable record
among the papers published by the
Camden Society in their last volume,
from “ The Edgerton Papers, ” furnish

curious, and hitherto unknown, docu
A Curious Mission.
Mr. Soule, in one of his letters to
the State department, makes some
singular disclosures. He says that
Louis Napoleon, before his celebrated
coup d’ete, which placed him at the
head of an empire, had concocted with
General Narvaez, the Spanish minis
ter, the plan of a mission to the Uni
ted States, to sound how far this coun
try was vulnerable in a military point
of view. A secret agent was to be
sent with instructions prepared by the
Department of Foreign Affairs. These
instructions, duly signed, were present
ed to Napoleon Bonaparte, the son of
Jerome, with a tender of what amount
of money he might require to carry
them out. The latter refused, telling
Louis Napoleon that he was not the
man for such a work ; that he was a
democrat, and would rather be with the
United States than with him. The mat
ter was dropped, and has not been re
sumed since, at least to the knowledge
of Mr. Soule’s informant. Mr. Soule
himself appears to have full faith in

IN presenting this work to the public, the publish
ers believe that they arc supplving a desidera
tum, the want of which has long'been long felt by
the reading community, aud especially by the peo
ple at large. No other work, much less any other
single volume, contains the complete and extended
view of entire American History which is here pre
sented. The plan and execution of the book are
entirely new; the arrangement of the various Eu
ropean provinces under their respective national
heads, and the subdivision of these into separate
Colonies nnd States—due chronological order being
preserved —will, it is thought, make it of peculiar
value ns a book of reference, and greatly facilitate a
clear and accurate knowledge of general history.

What Every Woman Should Know.
VERY woman should know that if, she is in
poor, sickly, debilitated condition of health,
muking existence a burden to herself and a source
of painful anxiety to ) er relatives and friends, and
perhaps, (horrible reflection !) entailing and inflic
ting her own maladies and Bufferings upon her
children, that it is tier duty to understand why dnd
tVom what cause her sufferings arise, that remedy
and relief may, while yet there is time, be availed
of, the causes be avoided in future, and her health
restored, that she may be fitted for the duties and
capable of the enjoyments of life.
Let every woman look at the emaciated form, the
deathlike complexion, the deep-buried, lustreless
eye, the sunken cheek, the gloomy and depressed
spirits, the shattered nerves, the prostrate and help
loss condition of many a wife, mother, daughter, or
sister, if not herself included, within her own cir
cle, whose days arc days of agony, and ask herself,
“Must this continue ? Must this be ? Is there no
remedy? No relief? No hope?”
The remedy is by knowing the causes and avoid
ing them, and knowing the remedies and beueflt
tiiig by them.
These are pointed out in

BY DR. A. M. MAURIC EAU,
PROFESSOR OF DISEASES OF WOMEN.
One hundredth Edition (500,000.) 18 mo., pp. 250.
[on kink PArr.it, extjsa binding, $1 00.]
Every complaint to which a woman is subject,
from girlhood to womanhood, as also as wife aud as
mother, are fully described, with the causes, the
symptoms, and also proper modes of treatment, in
a plain, simple, but in the most chaste language,
easily understood. And thus every woman can
discover, by comparing her own symptoms with
those described, the nature, character, and ciusos
of her complaint; and be spared much anxiety
The wife, about becoming a mother has often need
of instruction and advice of the Utmost importance
to her fut ure health, in respect to which her sensi
tiveness forbids consulting a medical gentleman,
will tind such instruction and advice, and also ex
plain many symptoms wkich otherwise would occa
sion anxiety or alarm.
How many are suffering from obstructions or ir- '
regularities peculiar to the female system, which
undermine the health, the effects of which they are
ignorant, and for which their delicacy forbids seeking
medical advice? How many may suffer from prohipuss
uteri (falling of the womb.) or from flour alb us
(weakness, debility, &c?) How many are in con
stant agony for many months preceding confine
ment? How many have difficult, if not dangerous
deliveries, and slow and uncertain recoveries ?
Some whose lives arc hazarded during such time,
will each find in its pages the means of prevention,
amelioration and relief.
.How many bitter moments, how much anguish,
might have been spared to the sufferer, to her hus
band, to her relatives, by the timely possession of
this little volume.
It is impracticable to convey fully tlie various
subjects treated of, as they are of a nature strictly
intended for the married, or those contemplating
But no husband, wife or mother are excusable if
they still continue in ignorance of those physiolog
ical laws, by the knowledge of which their own
health and happiness, as also the future well-being
of their children, are secured.
“ THE MARRIED WOMAN'S PRIVATE

VOLCANIC REPEATING PISTOLS.
' FISTOL can be discharged with greater
i rapidity and certainty than any other pistol
now in use. The following is an extract in relation
to them, taken from the New Haven Palladium:
“We have seen and fired a pistol recently in
vented and patented, which bids fair to excel eve
ry thing in that line that has yet been offered to
the public attention. It seems to combine all
that could be desired in such a weapon. Colt’s
pistol compared with it seems like a distortion, ora
clumsy, uncouth, and ridiculous affair for a fire-arm.
The volcanic pistol carries a Minie or conical ball,
in a rifle barrel, and will put it through a three
mch plank at a distance of ninety rods. The re
ceiving tube will hold ten ball cartridges, which
may be deposited in two seconds of time. The
pistol may be discharged thirty times In fifty sec
onds. It is so contrived that it is not liable to ac
cidental discharge. There 13 no priming, no caps,
and therefore no danger to the eyes from any igni
tion near the breach. Neither is there any recoil,
so as to jar the arm or disturb a sure aim. The
whole construction is so simple as not to get out of
order even from long use. The powder and ball
are enclosed in the same metallic cover, so that a
person could swim a river with one of these in his
belt without in the slightest degree injuring the
powder. In short, tho weapon is in all respects
one of the most perfect things in the shooting line
that we ever took into our hands.”

HITHERTO the grand difficulty in the way of
tho successful treatment of diseases or the
lungs, has beeu this:
• That no medicine taken internally could act di
rectly upon then ; they were off the line of com
munication as it were, and could not be reached.
Syrups, Balsams, Pectorals, Expectorants, with
thousands of remedies of a like description have
been resorted to, aud though they have given relief
and in mild eases ntny have cured by their indirect
action, yet it has always beeu felt that something
was lacking, and the general result has been so un
satisfactory, that it seems now admitted that change
of climate i», for the consumptive, the best prescrip
tion, the success of which, in many instances, has
been so marked us to give form to the idea that
whatever can be properly used as a remedy for dis
eased lungs must be breathed. Hence we find that
many eminent practitioners of the healing art are at
this day giving their researches this direction, with
the view of ascertaining what remedies are best
adapted to accomplish this object.
Some recommend medicated vapor of one sort,
some of another, some prescribe the balmy breezes
of Havana aud Porto Rico, while others commend
the cloudy atmosphere of a Louisiana sugar-house,
but however they may differ as to the means, all
are agreed that the only mode of acting directly on
the lungs must; be by inhalation.
Having entertained these or similar view's for a
considerable time, the undersigned has made use of
the extended means of observation that a twenty
years’ practice in varied and numerous cases of
chronic diseases has given him, and ho is fully sat
isfied that in combination with other remedies that
are calculated to relieve cc ngestion, the great ma
jority of luug diseases, such as Consumption, Brou
ehontis, Laryngitis, Asthma, Coughs, &c., can now
Hitherto these moans have only been used under
personal supervision, but considering that many
are unable to take long and expensive Journeys, the
fatigue of which might do more harm than change
of climate or persoual treatment would be able to
counteract, the undersigned has considered it with
a view to general adaptability for HOME use, and
has now to announce that he is prepared to send
by mail to any part of the country such an instru
ment as will be easily applicable under almost any
circumstances, together with such remedies as will
be best adapted to the cure of each particular case.
The applicant must give his age, history of the
cose, and present condition, in writing, and enclose
for the first package and instrument, $lO, and $5
for each subsequent package.
In thus introducing this valuable means of enre
and adapting it to general HOME use, he but car
ries out more fully the principles that he has so long
been endeavoring to establish, and enables those
that are thus affected to realize the benefits resulting
from his method of treating chronic diseases,- in any
part of the country by mail, which has been so sucV
cessfully pursued for the last twenty years.
This method he still continues, and cures
Palsy, Fi s, Dropsy, Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia,
Rheumatism, Stricture, Syphillis, Renal and Uter
ine diseases, &c., without seeing the patient.

Dm M. S. THOMSON,
Dear Sir.-—ls you recollect, about 6even months
ago, I applied to you for medicines to cure my
Cough, which had troubled me very much for over
three years ; so bad at times that I have often sat
up half the night, coughing and catching for breath.
In fact there seemed to be no doubt that 1 was des
tined to be added to be added to the long list of
victims of Consumption.
I had applied to several physicians, some of them
the most eminent in Twiggs county, but all to no
purpose ; for I continued to get so much worse that
1 despaiied of relief, until one of vour papers fell
into my hands, when 1 immediately concluded to
try you, and 1 am happy and proud to say that your
first and only prescription has entirely cured me,
for I have had no symptoms of my old complaint
since six weeks after I commenced vour treatment.
1 now consider myself' entirely weil, and as nrool'
of it can run a race with almost any one.
Meantime I remain vours very gratefullv,

In regard to the Board of Instructors, the Trus
tees deem it unnecessary to say anything of the
Principal, whose abilities and success as a teacher,
during a period of twelve years in Georgia, are
well known. Mr. DeLnnnoy has established a fine
reputation as an Instructor in French and Drawing
at the Cherokee Female Institute under the charge
of Mr. Fouche. Mr. Barclay is too well knowp in
Georgia and Alabama to need commendation. In
relation to Mr. Deby, who has been in this country
but a short time, they would state that he is a grad
uate of the University of Liege, has traveled over
a great part of Europe, in company with Sir Charles
Lyclland other distinguished has spent
two years in Central Amerieaon a Scientific Mission,
has been for three years Professor in the Central
College of Arts and Manufactures at Brussels, and
has published several Scientific and Agricultural
works in Europe. They deem it proper to say this
much, as Mr. Deby is comparatively a stranger, and
as he will have the care of the Scientific Depart
ment of the Institute.
They believe that the healthfulness and beauty
of the* locality, the comprehensive practical system
of instruction, and the efficiency of the teacher*.
C resent a combination of advantages unsurpassed
y any similar Institution. They invite special at
tention to the completeness of the Scientific and
