members of the miimv were free from tie
reproach of intrigues. the Prince had twice,
by the silly al,irs some years back at Stras
hourg and B'toue_n, shown himself a reck
less aind incorrigible pret ender. This ap
peal at the triomentt was apparently re
ceivel by the Asemubly with almost una
nittonts approval, and no or.e would then
have cntertiod a thousht but tlint a vote
of exclusion w.,'d he inmerhute. Out of
doors, however, the indications of the po
pular will became hourly more unmistaka
ble. Vice Napoleon was heard every
where and Vive ' Emperrur wtth signifi
cant frequency. The troops and Nation
al Guards were employed in all quarter4
in scattering the mnobs, and arrests were
multitudinous-but still the common cry
become louder and louder-the Nation;il
Guards were likely in some dergee soon
to sympathize with it- a regiment of the
Guardc Mobile had already pron-'oneed in.
and the ollence had been *o. erlookei."
and under all these signs the National As.
sembly, in its meeting next day, th'ew
back the Government proposition and de
cided by a large majority that the Pritncc
should be adpitted.
It is said that the draft of the new con.
stitution is nearly ready. Arago is con
sidered likely to be the first President, but
there is a strnnu party in favor of Caussi
diere, while others again of course talk of
Louis Napoleon. All considerations re
gardingcontingenciesofthis describlinu are,
however, wholly vain. On, man might
he certain of success to-day. and to-m,,r
row a new shake ot the kaleidescope might
shatter all our calculations. Meanwhile

many Gins in this county and Elbert. and I
thitk every Inal whu pureased is perf city
sausti.:d. All of his Gins which have ben
sold il this couity, andl they are not a t-w, rit
light, pick last, and what is hetet than all. w ben

This is to certify that I purchalisd of J. D.

ton gia, which mtak1es superior t'tt.U to anly
gin I have over hll. I eIl iied to Augusta a
part of may cr..p' ha4t tall, which was pr.wu.onne":d
by one of the best jndges 4f eottom in Augusta,
to he the finest lot that was in his w-irei,ouse.
Two of my neighburs lately sol their crops,
ginned on may gil, and obtained live-eighths ou
a ,ent per lb. above the market price. I tave
not sold my cutton, bum1t feel confideot of getting
the highest market price when I do sell. Fao,
dll that I know of Mr. Hammack's amake uif
Gins.and there are several in operation around
me. I would say to those wishing to purchase.
they would do well to try his beftore purcha,ing
elsewhere. AluaTiA GRiFFi'n.

I heteby certty that I pmtehased of J D.
Illmack, last I ear, a forty saw anu friction
cotton Gin, which performed as well as any gin
I have ever seen tried It made catton egnal.
in toy opinion, to that ofaniy of the Carver gtms,
which are .o hi..hlv praised for ther cotten.
.My gin and gitihontse were consnraed by tihe,
and as a report has gone abroad that the house
was tired by the gil, I take this opportunity to
say. in jnatice to Mr. 31.ummack, that it is ftlse.
I think I can with confideuce iecolinud his
Gins to those wishing to purchase, fur this rea.
son: his woak is all done by a few and exlae
rienced hands, instead of rouith wnsknen, as
is generally the casnt where there are a great
many Gius made. EtUELDRED . EUWAIUSs.
