The Fair and Tournament at Augusta
Yesterday was the day set apart for
the Annual Spring Exhibition of the
Cotton States Mechanics' and Agri
cultural Fair Association. This is
the third one given, and each of the
former were so succesful that a great
deal was expected from the present,
both as regarded pleasure and profit.
In order to give

ted the Savannah Sabre Club to a
trial of skill, to take place in the
Fair Grounds during the progress of
the Exhibition. The invitation was
promptly accepted, and the Savan
nah Club arrived hero with their
horses on Tuesday evening. The
Club and its hospitable roeoption by
the citizens of Augusta have already
been fully noticed in the Chronicle
and Sentinel. The managers of the
Association also determined to in

CONVENTION OF THE STOCKHOLDERS
Of the Georgia Railroad Company
would be in session in the city, The
Georgia Railroad has more stock
holders in proportion to the capital
stock than any cther road in the coun

always very largely attended. In this I
way it was expected that a large
crowd would be hero during the ex

been disappoiPted. The
GATES AT THE FAIR GROUND
Were opened yesterday morning, at
eight o'clock, and about an hour
later the visitors began to enter the
beautiful park. Vegetatation has
advanced as rapidly as the lateness
of the season would permit and the
place wore a most inviting aspect.
The first point of interest was the
large building to the right of the
fountain, known as
Here all the articles on exhibition
were placed. In the centre of the
ball was a beautiful fountain-the
basin of which was elevated Eoveral
feot from the floor and surrounded up
to the water's brim with rare and
costly hot house flowers and exotics.
On either side of the room were long
rows of tables upon which were plao
ed fruits and flowers. Owing to the
lateness of the season and other dis.
advantages with which our gardeners
have had to contend, the supply of
fruits and vegetables was not near so
large as usual, and, of course, this
fact had a bad effect upon the exhibi
tion. Still there were some vero fine
specimens from Augusta gardons
some of them remarkable for size and
vigorous there growth. In the fruit line
isa little at present ripe in this sec
tion of country, but there was a fine
display of such as were in season. We
noticed some magnificent specimens
of strawberries, cherries, eta. There
were plenty of fine green-house and
open air flowers, but not as many as
there should have boon, for the hall
is so large that it takes an immense
quantity to make a proper: show.
We have not space to day to mako
speclal mention of any of the articles
in this hall, and also refrain from do.

An Innocent Man Released from Priso
After Serving Eight Years.
The Providence Journal, of the 22i
ult., says :
James O'Neil who bas served mor(
than eight years in the State Prisor
for a crime which it is now proved
that lie was entirely innocent of, wai
liberated Friday afternoon, shortly
after the Senate consented to the par.
don, if pardon it can be called. The
news was broken to O'Niel gent.
ly by his counsel, W. B. Whitman,
Esq., of this city, who had thoughl
best not to inform him that efforti
wore being made for his release, that
he might not be disappointed, and
they were at first too good news for
him to believe. The poor follow
passed the outer door of the prison
for the first time since his sentence,
like one in a dream, and as he reach
ed the street drew a long deep breath,
with the heart felt remark, "How
sweet the air smells." After he be
gan to realize that lie was really re
leased, lie said that he suffered more
wheu told he was free than when he
l'eard the sentence of imprisonment
for life passed against him. He was
taken in charge by a brother-in-law,
who lives in Philadelphia, and left
with him on Saturday for his home
in that city. His parting words to
counsel, as he was about leaving on
the cars, were : "God bless you,
sir ; only for you I'd be in the prison
now ; I'll pray for you, and if you
ever need a man to6die for you send for
me ," in a manner that left no doubt
of their sincority.

I Meningetis-8uccessful Treatment of the
Disease Known by this Name.
We regard the following informa
tion, handed us by a lady of great
' respectability, now residing in Green
ville, as too, important to be with
hold from the public. We hope the
papers will give it circulation ; it
may be the means of saving many val.
uoble lives. Knowing the 'source
whence it comes, we can confidently
fask for it the most serious attention.
The lady we refer to, (Mrs. L. T.
DeG,) utates in a note that "the re
medy was sent to me by my esteemed
friend and,relative, Dr. J. J. Robert.
son, of Washington, Georgia, a man
of groat intelligence and ability :"
"The disease called Cero Spinal
Meningetis, is improperly named, and
hence the improper treatment in
many cases. It is not inflammation
of the membranes of the spine and
brain. I have made several post mor
tem examinations, and found it the
case in every instance. The symp.
toms are very like those of inflam
mation of the inembranos, I admit,
but treated as such, every case will
prove fatal. I have had over a hun
dred cases ; the first seven cases had
died when I was called in consula
tion. Finding all these had been
treated by depletion ind had died, I
at once made an examination of two
of the bodies and decided to change
the mode of treatment, and it proved
a success in nearly every case.
When the case is first taken, at once
shave the back of the head in the most
rapid m;nner possible raise a blister
from the back of the head to the end
of the spine ; in severe cases I satu
rate flannel with turpentine and apply
it and run a hot iron over it until it
blisters, or rub on the turpentine and
set it on fire, or any other way to pro.
duce a blister as soon as possible;
then give quinine in ten grain doses
until thirty or forty grains are taken
-give ten grains every two or three
hours ; let,the patient drink freely of
pepper tea, and also take a table
spoonful or two of whiskey every four
or five hours, and give him ten grains
of the bromido of potass every six
hours. These doses are for adults.
If the case Is a negro it will require
more stimulants than a white person,
and especially of red pepper tea.
If the case is taken in time, this
treatment will cure nearly every one,
but if neglected for an hour or two, it
may fail. I saw oases bled and they
died an hour after ; others were'purg.
ed and died with symptoms of
cholera ; others had every uppearance
of tetanus or lockjaw. The symp
toms and name given the disease

To sum up : Blister the back of
the head and whole spine in the most
expeditious manner possible, and
keep it sore ; give full doses .of quin
ine and pepper tea, and occasionally
whiskey, and keep the patient under
-the influence of bromido of potass.
If the bowels are disposed to act, do
not hesitate to give an opiate to check
them ; or if there is any acute pain

The' anItery Influence of Forest ani
From Germany, where so manny
subjects are considered that. have so
little attention paid to them else
where, cones curious facts and statis.
ties about the influence of forests in
checking contagious diseases and the
sanitary influence of trees generally.
Dr. Max von Petteikofer, of Munich,
has been investigating this subject for
some time, and has just published a
mass of i6formation, gathered from
widely different sources, which is of
much impo'tance. The gist of it is
that forests have a very appreciable
effect in checking the progress of
cholera or other contagious diseases ;
that well wooded countries, other
things being equal, are the healthiest,
and that marked sanitary changes are
sure to result from the denudation of
a territory by the cutting down of its
trees, or by the planting of gardens
and forests where no trees exist.
In proof of these theories Dr. Pot.
tenkofer has many-reports from medi
cal men in India showing that jungle
villages are much less liable to be
visited by cholera than otherp, and
that villages densely shaded with
tamarind trees are remarkably cx
empt from the disease, as shown by
observations through a long series of
years. The statistics of cholera
through Germany for the last forty
years also show that the well-wooded
provinces have had a much lower rate
of mortality than the others. Bear.
ing upon the'influenco of trees upon
the general healthfulness of a coun.
try are the statements that the pesti
lence has entirely disappeared from

An Innocent Plan Vindicated.
The Jacksonville (Ill.) Journal re
lates the following singular - occur
rence, showing how sometimes inno
cent parties suffer from unjust soou3a
tions u au.
Fifteen years ago one Sam Steele
worked on a farm for Mr. George Bar
bour ; whQ lived 'a mile and a-half
north of this place. One day Mr.
Barbour. came to town, bringing his
wife. Before starting he called in
Steele, and in his presence put $250
in a bureau drawer, looked it up and
delivered to him the key of the draw
er, as well as the key to the house,
telling him to take care of both for the
day. Returning home at night and
recounting the money Mr. Barbour
found that a fifty dollar bill was miss
ing. 8teele, who was the only one
that knew of the whereabouts of the
money besides Mr. Barbour, denied
all knowledge of the missing bill, de
claring that he bad not entered the
room since he did so with Barbour.
The latter maintained that Steel must
know something about it, and finally
discharged him from his service.
Steele left and has not been heard of
sine. A few day since Mr. B krbour
found the missing fifty dollars in the
back -part of his bureau, caught in the
frame. One-half of the bill was worn
away by rubbing of the drawer as it
had been pulled backward. When
ho found it he burst into tears, con..
sonce-stridken from having unjustly
accused and censured Steele.

A Beautiful Incident,
On a beautiful summer's day, a
clergyman was called to preach in a
town in Indiana, to a young Episco
pal congregation. At- the olose of
his discourse, he addressed his young
hearers in such words, as these :
"Learn that the present life is a
preparation for and has a tendency
to eternity. The present is linked to
the future throughout creation, in
the animal, and in the moral world.
As is the seed, so is the fruit ; as is
the egg, so is the fowl ; as is*the boy,
so is the man ; and as is the rational
being in this world, so will lie be in
the next. Dives estranged froin God
here, is Dives estranged from God in
the next, and Enoch walking with
God here, is Enoch walking with God
in a calm and better world. I boe,
veecl you, live then for a blessed
eternity. Go to the worm that you
tread upon, and learn a lesson of wis.
dom, The very caterpillar seeks the
food that fosters it for another and
similar state ; and more wisely than
man builds its own sculpture, from
whence in time by a kind of resur
rection it comes forth a new creature
in almost an angelic form. And now
that which crawled flies, and that
which fed on comparatively gross food,
sips tho dew that reveals in the rich
pastures, an emblem of that paradise
where flows the river of life and arows
the tree of life. Could the cattorpil.
lar have been diverted from its proper
element and mode of life, if it had
never attained the butterfly's splendid
form and hue, it had perished a
worthless worm. Consider her ways
and be wise. Let it not be said that
yo are more negligent than worms,
and that your reason is less available
than their instinct. As often as the
butterfly flits across your path, re
member that it whispers in its flight,
"live for the future."
With this the pretcher closed his
discourse ; but to deepen the inipres
sion, a butterfly, directed by the
Hand which guides alike the sun and
an atom in its course, fluttered
through the Church, as if commis
sioned by Heaven to repeat the exor
tation. There was neither sp ecli
nor language, but its voice was leard
saying to the gazing audienc--"Livo
for the future."
