siastically icceived in Atlanta on Satur?
day. At oigbt, a welcoming speech
was delivered at thc Kimball House by
(Jen. Gailington, about two thousand
persons atteoding. It. response, accord

Looking down upon the Jiouest faces
bef'oie hiiu he experienced a peculiar
pleasure as he realized the fact that the
complimertaiy tribute paid to him was
au expression of sentiment on the part
of the people of Georgia. Georgia had
a proud recuid" Beginning with Ogle?
thorpe, and glancing at the old Colonia!
times, the speaker remarked that the
principles for which Georgians fought
i;i the late war between the States were
the same they contended for in the revo?
lution of 1770, and in the war of 1812
Ile felt animated and sustained by the
conviction that Georgia would yet re?
cover her ancient liberties and be a jjreat,
prosperous and sovereign State. When
first he saw Atlanta it was simply an old
field o* s'uhblc. Again he saw if just
after the Feder?l army had swept ever
ir, marking their coorie by a Vandal?
ism iar blacker than anything that had
ever slamed ihe fair fame of i urenne as
a soldier. A third time he saw it, and
then the blackened ruins had disappear?
ed; the evidences of desolation had been
swept away to make room for thc stately
structures which DOW ornament the city
Dwelling at some length upon the enter?
prise and energy displayed by the people
of Georgia, under so many adverse cir
cutm :anccs, the speaker alluded to the
important woik which the young men (
of the State liad before them. Ile did i
not propose to discuss politics. Ile had <
shaken hands with politics, and had I
done with them forever. Ile trusted i
that every one in the audience would i
:'gree with him on that point. But 1
while he did n..t care to make a politi- ]
cal speech, he felt that he ought to ?
cxpre.-s one or two opinions in reference i
to i lie best policy to bc pursued by the j
South. Ile referred only to the present ;
- the future might take care of itself.
He dared not say ai) that he would. It
would be usid against the Southern ,
people, and they would be compelled to
Lear the responsibility of his utterances.
There was a good deal of talk about .
"accepting the situation," but, as far as
he was concerned, he would "accept
nothing !" These inferable phrases ?
about "accepting the situation" because
our rights had been submitted to the
abitrament ol' the sword and lost, were
the excuses of dunces and cowards. No
one had any right to submit the liber?
ties ol' a people to thc abitrament of the
sword. The representatives of the
Southern people had never been author?
ized to do anything of the kind. Af
their chief Executive, he had never
been so authorized, nor did he ever
claim to be. Ile did not like to bc
understood as advocating resistance
On thc contrary, he counselled submis
tion to existing laws. He knew vcay
well that thc conquerer was too power?
ful to be successfully resisted by thc
South. It wa> the duty of Georgia, and
of the other Southern States, to keep
aloof /rom politics, and to attend to the
development of their internal resources.
This was all l. ni eould bc done at
?resent. It was useless fur the South
to attempt to take a coutrolling part in
thc polities of the country. As matters
uaw stand such action would only delay
the day ol deliverence. He was firmly ?
c mvinced, and intended to live and die
believing that Georgia and her sister
States would again bc prosperous, free
and sovereign. Unless this was a;*ain
tiie c:i>c the Republic was a failure.
Hut there were great numbers of free?
men in thc North who sympathize with
us. 'fin-y would never submit to be de?
prived of their liberties, and wheo they
felt the dangerat Imme they would then
need the aid of thc South. Thus by
quietly holding aloof thc South could
become a political balance of power on
this continent. Thia desirable result
would be accomplished by waiting until
they divided at the North, and theo it
Would be the policy of the South to act
with tn.- [-arty having the best candidate
and thebes! platform.
lu conelu.-ion, Mr. Davis made a few
humorous remarks about the life in
huiauee business. Ho preferred to dis
CM-- that instead of politics. It would
alf rd bim pleasure to insure the life of
every man present, and guarantee one

HON. .TB PF. D'A VIS? MISSISSIPPI ES?
TATES NOW OWNED BI ONE OF
HIS FORTIER SLAVES.
A letter to the Chicago Tribune de?
scribes a visit made in company with
Mr. Jefferson Davis to the plantation
formerly owned by him in Mississippi.
The writer says :
We left at night on the R. E. Lee,
one of our fioeat steamers, and landed at
thc Hurricane plantation abont daylight
the next morning. This plantation, and
another known as Briarfield, were occu?
pied before thc war by J. E. Davis and
his brother, President Davis. They
were sold to a favorite freedman, Ben
Montgomery, for $300,000, payable at
the end of ten years, (1st January,
1876.) interest at six per cent., payable
anuually. Ben, who is very black, but
thoroughly educated before thc war, met
us and ?rave us a breakfast, waiting on
the table himself, but not offering to
lake a seat. After breakfast we had a
surriage and rode over the magnificent
estate, the extent of which you can form
some idea when I tell you that Ben
Montgomery made last year 2,500 bales
oOotton and a large quantity of corn.
We dined at Briarfield, the former
residence of Jefferson Davis, and now
occupied as a residence by the aforesaid
Ben, and you will not be surprised to
learn that the former slaves of Mr.
Davis greeted him with all the warmth
if affection which they were capable of
expressing. Mr. Davis met them
sordially, and encouraged them by many
kind words. Alter dinner, at which
our wealthy host again waited on us in
elegant btjle, we passed on to a very
large aud valuable plantation which has
been purchased by Ben Montgomery
and^ added to tire Davis estate, and
?hieb will add to his crop this year
probably 1,000 bales more, making
5,500 bales io all, if it is a good crop.
THE FREE-LOVE QUEEN.
Victoria Woodhull'? Creed and Defence.
Mrs. ex-Dr. Woodhull, now Mrs.
Blood, the acknowledged leader of the
Woman Right's movement at the North,
publishes a card io the New York
papers, io which she says :
One of the charges made against me
is that I lived in the same house with
my former husband, Dr. Woodhull, and
my present husband, Colonel Blood -
The fact is a fact. Dr. Woodhall being
sick, ailing and incapable of self sap
port, 1 felt it my duty to myself and to
human nature that he should be cared
for, although his incapacity waa in no
wise attributable to me. My present
husband. Colonel Blood, not only ap?
proves of this charity, but co-operates
io it. I esteem it one of the most
virtuous acts of roy life. But various
editors hr.vc stigmatized me as a living
example ol immorality and unchastity.
My op; ? I on s antTpriciples are subjects
of just criticism. 1 put myself before
the public voluntarily. I know foll
well that the public will criticise me
and my motives and actions in their own
way and at their own time. I accept
the position. I except to no fair analy?
sis and examination, even if the scalpel
bc a little merciless.
But let him who is without- sin east
his stone. I do Bot intend to be made
the scapegoat of sacrifice, to be offered
up as a victim to society by those who
cover up the foulness of their lives and
thc feculence of their thoughts with
hypocritical mouth of fair professions,
and by diverting publie attention from
their own iniquity and pointing thc
finger at me. I know that many of our
self appointed judges and critics are
deeply tainted with the vices they con?
demn. I live in one hoose with one
who was my husband ; I live as the
wife with one who is my husband. 1
believe ia spiritualism ; I advocate free
love in thc highest, purest sense, as the
only cure for the immorality, the deep
damnation by which men corrupt and
disfigure God's tucul holy, institution of
sexual relations. My judges preach
against free love openly, practice it
secretly. Their outward seeming is
fair ; inwardly tiiey are full ot "dead
men's bones and all manner of unclean?
ness" For example, I know of one
man, a public tench er of eminence, who
lives in concubinage with the wife of
another public teacher of almost equal
eminence. All three concur in de?
nouncing offences against morality.
"Hypocrisy is the tribute paid by vice
to virtue." So be ir. But I decline to
stand up as "the frightful example."
I shall uiako it my busiue<s to analyze
some of their lives, and will take ny
chances in the mailer of libel snits.
I have no faith io critics, bat I believe
it; public justice.

A NEW DISCOVERY,
Gen. Plea^ton, Commissioner of
Internal Fe-cjue, as we notice in the
New York Sun, has made an extraordi?
nary discovery in relation to the
influence of the blue color of the sky ic
developing animal and vegetable life.
He believes that the blue color of the
sky, for one of its functions, deoxyge
oates carbonic acid gas, supplying
carbon to vegetation, and sustainin
both vegetable and animal life with its
oxygen j and that the magnetic, electric
and thermic powers of the sun's rays
reside in the violet ray, which is a
compound of the blue and red rays.
He is said to have tested this upon
grapes, by casting the sun's rays upon
the vines through a glass of violet color,
the construction being such that thc
sun, in his daily course, casts a beam of
violet light on every leaf in the grapery.
Thc result was astonishing. In a few
weeks after tba grape vices were planted
the walls and thc inside of the roof were
closely covered with the most luxuriant
and healthy development of foliage and
wood* and in five months some of them
had grown forty-five feet in length,
while they were an inch in diameter at
the distance of one foot above the
ground. Moro, extraordinary yet, thc
second year of their growth these vines
produced twelve hundred pounds of
grapes, both the clusters and grapes
being of unusual size and development,
while in old grape growing countries
from five to six years will elapse before
a single bunch of grapes can be produced
from a young vine.
The effect of the blue or violet light
was next applied to pigs. A litter was
separated, part of them being brought
under it in a pen constructed for the
purpose. The effect, although showing
a greater increase in size and weicht,
was yet . not so saiipfactory as with the
grapes. Its application, afterwards,
however, to an Alderny bull calf, was
surprising. This calf, when it was born,
was so puny and weak that no coe ex?
pected it to live. Placed in a pen under
violet glass, the animal immediately
began to improve, and shortly afterward
developed in the most extraordinary
manner. Yo fifty days be gained six
inches in height, carrying a Bailable
laternal development with it, and in
about a year he came to maturity. He
is DOW one of the best developed ani?
mals to be found anywhere. The
General naturally deems this discovery
to be of immeasurable value to an agri?
cultural people. If colts can be inllu
cenced by blue light to maturity in one
year instead of five, with no greater
supply of food than would be nsed for
an immature animal in the same period ;
if the youth and tenderness of a calf
can bc combined with the majestic pro?
portions of the ox, with no additional
cost for thcextra weight; if<hc growth
of soring lambs and spring chickens can
be forcer! ander ?lass like early aspara?
gus, Gen. Pleasonton, in this discovery,
has indeed bestowed a boon upon his
agricultural fellow laboro? which will
afford him a greater renown than his
most brilliant achievements as Commis?
sioner of Internal. Hevenae,

most gigantic enterprises ever under?
taken in the South is now on foot in
Charleston. As will be seen by adver?
tisement in another cointon, an Immi?
gration Association has been organized
for the purpose of securing settlers opon
their lands, and in order to raise the
necessarily large capital required, they
have adopted the expedient of a series of
Gift Concerts, to begin at Charleston in
October; the ticket holders of which
will be participants io the grandest op?
portunity ever offered to become rich a1
a small risk and with a clear conscienee,
The number of tickets issued is 150,000,
aud the price is five dollars each.
Thc first prize is the Acudemy of
Music, including stores, music halls, &c,
built at a cost of $230,000 The second
prize is one hundred thousand dollars
in cash, the third is twenty five thou?
sand dollars; the fourth is ten thousand
dollars, and the filth is five thousaod
Qollars, beside which, there are twenty
four hundred gifts varying from ten io
one thousand dollars. Thc scheme has
thc unqualified endorsement of the best
citizens of South Carolina, mee known
