I am un iblo to say, unlci.s it. be because he is a

The city of Mucon shnds on the nest bank of

Macon is an important cotton market; nt foist one
third of the cottan mado 111 Georgia is sold hero;

portion of this is sent by railroad to Savanmh, nnd
tho balunco down tho river to Dmien, in smull
Bt.eamboats, which can ply here in tho winter sea
son. As our shy in Macon included the time of the
Presidential election, it may nut bo amiss to say a
word in relation to tho manner in which it was con
ducted here. Each party wcro equally sanguino
of success, and thousands and tens ot thousands
were bet on tho election in Georgia, and on tho ill
tlrnito success of the two cnndidutes. Tho can
vass wub spirited, even boyond what I had over be
fore witnessed. Roth panics hold meetings and
listened to speeches frtm their respective outors;
nnd it was in tliejo meetings that 1 for the first time
wi'nossed the peculiarities of Southern eloquence.
At one of these meetings of tho Democratic pnty
were several prominent characters from Texas,
among whom wcro Conimoiloro Moore mid n cer

Is a mm of gon I talents but labored under nu em
barrassment, nnd evidently thought himself in bail
company. A coon hunt lollowed. In the street in

At last tho Englishman showed a fighting disposi

smoko out uf his mouth into another man's face,
and that smoking ought to be confined to smoking
places. Tlio heavy German wiih all tlio slowness
and gravity of his nation, coldly replied in tho

right have you lo complain to mako uf de smell of
my smoke, when your own coat liavo bin burn and
