An Urgent Word to Our County
On Friday, the 1st S'-ptember, the
day after the Priunify Election, let
our County Executive Committee get
to work at, least by IO o'clock A. M.
Iudeed we should very strongly ad
vice that the Committee begin the
work ot summing np at this hour,
even though but one third ol if1?
members be present. We consider
this matter extremely important, for
we well remember the tedious and
trying scsnes of the summing np in
?880. A vast crowd was present
from all parts of the county, await
ing the public announcement of the
result. But still, notwithstanding
their natural and laudable anxiety,
their intense exciteinen!., their tedi
ous vigil, and their long fast, they
were forced to depart homewards
without hearing said announcement
-unsatisfied and cheerless. The
Committee did not begin their work
until 12 o'clock M.: and, if we re
member aright, the announcement
was not made until niue o'clock at
night. And then the eri-ir's voice
fell upon the silent air.

AU Things to all Mea iu all
The Greenbackers proceed fro:
the vicious principle, "all things I
all men in all places." For Mair
they are prohibitionists, in Nort
Carolina anti-prohibitionists, in Sont
Carolina they are opposed to high(
education, in New York they are i
favor of both common and higher et
ucatton, in Massachusetts they ai
in favor of qualified suffrage, inSout
Carolina they are in favor of au ni
licensed, unbridled and unqualvfie
suffrage. Their leaders have coloi
equal to the celebrated coat of J<

brother's coat in the hlood of th
goat to deceive their countrymen.

Ben Hill a Methodist,
Senator Hill had never been an in
religious man. He had long been a
member ol thc Methodist Church,
and his bob! masterful nJnd had nev
er tried to soar above the simple ten
ets of the Christian faith. Ma*iy
persons will remember Mr. Hill's
gathering about, him the visitors in
the juniors of one ol'our North Geor
gia resorts, one Slimmers Sabbath
Day, and delivering an impromptu
lecture on "Faith" which moved half
the assemblage to tears. His great
intellect, and biselo.juence here went
hand in hand. He bad always been
the gentlest, and fondei-t of husbands,
and it was Gen. Evana' lemark upon
the close of a long acquaintance with
him, that he had never seen a more
devoted domestic character or a firm
er holder of the faith.
