Th ~lautea'J ee of Augusta.
- We take pleasure in recommending
such Hotels to the public. The follow
ing tem from the Charleston Courier
-speaks our opinion precisely
The Planters' lotel of Augusta has,
uder the auspLes of that Prince of hosts,
ol. 1. S. Nickerson, become one of the
most popular and well kept establish
ments in the whole South. Nor are we
surprised at this, as the experience of
Col. Nickerson in the management of the
S-Mils House of this city for a number of
years, and lately of his own hotel in
Columbia, has been of a character to
familiarize him perfectly with the expecta
tions and wants of the traveling public.
The "Planters'" has always been a
karite resort, but .since it has fallen
under the management of its present
proprietor the conveniences and comfort
which it provides for its guests are second
to none offered by any Hotel south of
It has been thoroughly renovated and
repaired; its furniture and appointments
-r entirely new and of the best descrip
tion, its tables groan with the choicest
viands which the markets of Augusta
-afford, and its servants arc ever polite,
" J accomm odating and attentive. Amongst
the assistants of Col. Nickerson in the
executive part of the establishment are
Dr. L. C. Duncan, who is personally
known to most of our citizens by his
business connection, in past years, and
Messrs. L. S. Morris and J. A. Goldstein,
-Y who are natives of Augusta and no less
.conversant with their business than
energetic and courteous in its discharge.
In a word the Hotel is all that it should
be, in e;::ry particular, and we take great
y uesre in- recommending it to those of
or readers who may visit Augusta and
"wish to be handsomely entertained.

Wednesday Morning, April 17, 1867.
Pay for it Before youake it.
"Put mcney in thy purse" honestly if
you can, if not put it there any how.
Doubtful advice certainly. It was given
by some old curmudgeon to his son ; it
related to money however .and not to
newspapers, but it seems as if some
people apply it to both money and news
papers. Scarcely a week but we are
called upon by one or more subscribers
with the request that we change their
papers to some other office, in the hope
that by so doing they may receive it
more regulaily, although perhaps in
most instances the distance to the office
to where the request is made to send it is
greater than the other. Let us give the
reason for this. The parties complaining'
tell us that their papers are taken out by
others, with the promise to the P. Master
to deliver them to the rightful owners,
but in the majority of cases the papers
are kept, read and handed from one to
another, until when it reaches its proper
owner it is several days, a week, or two
weeks old, and in some instances does
not reach them at all. Now is this right,
just or honest? Assure3ly not ; it is
hard to say jtst what it is, but it looks
very much like taking that which belongs
to another. Our subscribers pay for and
expect to receive their paper in due time,
it belongs to them, and ho one has a
right !^ i but them, If the paper is
worth reading it is worth paying for,
and the man who reads without regularly
subscribing and paying for it, commits a
fraud both to the subscriber who has
paid us and to ourselves. We trust that
the practice will be discontinued. While
reading thi,, let us exhort you, friend,
for ten chances to one you are a sponger
or may be pilferer of the very paper you
are reading, to determine at once and
honestly subscribe, it will help you in
the end, your conscience can be very
cheaply set at ease, $3 will make a man
of you for one whole year ! Think of it.
The G. & C. E. E
Complaints are made to us concerning
ibe G. & 0. R. R. That piles of goods
including perishable kinds-are in the
depots,for weeks together,which ought to
be delivered promptly. The detention of
them cause immense losses to the mer
chants. We do not like to in terfere with
individual or corporation business, but,
as a railroad is a great public servant, it
is meet and right to give expression to
the grievances of the people. The mer
chant is kept out of his goods,-money
he loses custom, and in the end pays
freight for perishing and ansaleable comn
modities. If there is a remedy it should
be applied. Cannot arrangements be
made with the S. C. R. R., by which
goods for all prominent points on this road
may be loaded in Charlestoni, and the ears
transferred to the Greenville road with
out the delay, trouble and expense of re
shipment at Colombia? Cannot th~e mat
ter 'be made mutually profitable ? Cannot
the mail train,-no connections are
made-attach -several freight cars. A
ltte extra energy in unloading and re
turning the ears promptly would work
wonders. We learn that eat s are not re
turned when they mights be. The- road
needs money, no doubt, and freight is
cash. Therefore push the matter.

TEMPERANCE MEETIG.-The meeting
on Friday night was again largely and,
we might very appropriately say, beauti
fully attended, the ladies we believe being
in the majority. as they always are in
every good and charitable cause. We
are pleased to see so much interest mani
fested in a work of such great importance
both socially and morally. Several point
f cd and well delivered addresses were
made, in the following order of speakers:
Messrs. Hough, Leavell, Col. Moorman
and Rev. Mr. Zimmerman, and all of
them exhibited a feature worthy of ex-.
ample-charming brevity. Many new
names were added to the already lengthy
list of signers, and the society so happily
inaugurated, and so energetical. pushed
forward, bids fair-t' a long reign of use
fulness and good. The only bar to the
enjoymeut of ine meeting was the dis
graceful behaviour of the boys ; it would
be difficult to iniagine where they got
their bad manners from. We will attend
to them in another paragraph. On next
Friday evening the meeting will be ad
dressed by the Rev. Mr. Mickel and others.
A full attendance is requested.
A PECULIAR INSTITUTIoN.--Peculiar to
all localities is the boy institution, but
in some it predominates largely over
others. In this devoted-town the number
is legion, and of all stripes and character,
and we sorrow to say that the bad ma.n
nered boy stands prominently in the
ascendant. So long however as their
peculiar characteristies are seen and
heard only in the street, no public com
plaint is made, but we cannot pass over
in silence the shameful and annoying
conduct exhibited on every pub5e~ occa
sion, meetings, lectures, or entertain
ments of any kind, where our citizens go
to enjoy themselves and be profited. As
rit ii, the latter is an impossibility ;
Senjoyment is lost in the annoyance,
vesation and disgust which every one
experiences when these unmannered boys
commence to show the peculiar style of
their "bringing up." Is there ao: way
to put a stop to this nuisance ? We sug
'gest, that if these boys are all orphans,
~ which their conduct surely indicates, for
no. parent who has a regard for outward
forms and decency would over-look-or
permit so gross a violation,-that a house
of correction hec . established for their
Ibenefit andi reforrnation. If on the other
hand they have parents -or guardians
-but wve cannot believe it, such an idLai
absurd-these boys must .be excluded
from-entering public meetings or- eiiter
Stainments ; should they enter, i.et them,
on the fiist outbreak, be forcibly ejected.
Many of these offenders too are what'xnay
be called boy-men ; men in age and size,
but boys in behaviour. To them we say
shame on you ; you ought to know better.
We do not reflect upon all the boys of
our town, for there are many who under

quired of them, both in public and
