The Democratic Centrnl Execrative
Committee of Georgia executes a long
address to the party. Among other
things, it says : Notwithstanding wo
hold the Reconstruction Acts of Con?
gress -were enacted outside of tho
Constitution and without constitu?
tional authority, we do not propose
or intend to maintain our position
by & resort to force. The constitu?
tionality of those Acts is a question
to be decided by the Federal Judicia?
ry upon a proper case made. If their
decision should be adverse to the
constitutionality of that legislation
we will claim all the consequences
which will legitimately result from
such a decision, and it will not be un?
reasonable in ns to expect that those
who hold opposite views will acquiesce
in tho decision and accord to us all
the rights to which it may legally
entitle us. On the contrary, if the
constitutionality of the reconstruction
measures should be sustained by the
supreme Federal Judiciary, as peace?
able, law abiding oitizens wo will
yield submission to that decision,
and cease all further opposition to
those measures; and in another con?
tingency, if the Supreme Conrtshould
refuse to entertain jurisdiction of
cases presented under these Acts, the
only alternative left will bo to yield
them obedience as laws obligatory
and binding or to resist them by
revolution, and the latter wo unhesi?
tatingly reject. Wo desire a peaceful
solution of tho complications arising
under these Aots, anda finality to the
.agitation which they have produced.
In our own State, wo recognize the
government which has been organ?
ized by authority of these Acts, and
will recognize it now and henceforth
if it should not bo superseded by
authority of law. If our State shall
be remanded to tho Government ex?
isting prior to the enactment of tho
Reconstruction Acts, it must be done
by operation of law and not by revo?
lution. We hold, then, that the ques?
tion of tho constitutionality of the Acts
referred to is a question for the Judi?
ciary and not for an appeal to arms
or any violent revolutionary measures
to be resisted by the President of tho
United States, to set up or sot aside
these measures by his own mere will.
Whichever of the present candidates
for the Presidency of the United
States may be elected to that office
neither should nse his arbitrary will
either in enforcing these measures
against a d?cision of the Supreme
Court declaring them unconstitution?
al or in suppressing them, and sotting
them aside before the action of the
Judiciary can be had.
We pledge ourselves to submit to
all laws constitutionally enaoted; to all
decisions of the courts declaring laws
to be constitutional whose constitu?
tionality may be disputed, and in re?
turn we claim all the rights guaranteed
by the Constitution. We claim protec?
tion of life, liberty and property by
law, and we claim for our State equal?
ity of rights and privileges with
other States of the Union. We de?
sire to see our Government brought
back to its original purity and first
principles. We desire an administra?
tion of tho Federal Government upon
tho principles upon which it was ad?
ministered in the early ages of tho
Republic Let tho Federal Govern?
ment be administered upon theso
principles, and, speaking for the
?icople of Georgia, we pledge our
ortune8 and our sacred honor to
maintain tho Union in its full vigor.
The report of the House Commit?
tees on tho state of the Republic,
submitted by Mr. Shumate, is an able
document. It reviews the history of
Georgia sinoo May, 1865; says recon?
struction un'7 er the Congressional
plan !s accomplished and past; dep?
recates the inflammatory and abusive
character of certain political publica?
tions, speeches, ?co., made for the
purpose of arousing the hostility of
one race against tho other; also, that
there are men. in our midst who
would basely and falsely assert that
it is the purpose of a majority of the
white people of tho State to remand
the negro to his former condition of
slavery; asserts it as tho purpose of
the white people of the Stnto to faith?
fully protect the negro raco in the
enjoyment of all the rights, privi?
leges and immunities guaranteed to
him by the Constitution and laws of
tho United States and tho Costitu?
tion and laws of this State.
The report concludes ns follows:
"We see no reason to apprehend that
the State government, under the
present Constitution, in its legitimate
operation as directed and adminis?
tered by tho several departments as
now constituted, will be more re?
strictivo of the rights of uny class of J
our citizens than is absolutely neces?
sary to harmonize it with aud con?
form it to the requirements of the
Constitution and laws of the United
States, and wo trust the State go?
vernment will adhere to and make
effective the first section in the de?
claration of the fuudameutal princi?
ples embraced in our Constitution
Protection of person aud property is
the paramount duty of government,
and shall bo impartial and complete."

THREE HUSBANDS POISONED BY
THEIR WIVES.-A most extraordinary
oase is to bo tried shortly before tho
Cour d'Assizes of Marseilles. It has
just been discovered that three wo?
men coolly and deliberately poisoned
their husbands, in order to marry
again. Two of the husbands died
some months ago; the third and last
in August. All three bodies have
been exhumed, to bo analyzed by
medical men, each of the presumed
assassins boiug brought in presence
of the victim. Ono of the women is
forty-five years of age, another thir?
ty-five and tho third scarcely twenty.
As far as can bo ascertained at pre?
sent, they appear to have been assist?
ed in their crimo by a fourth woman
-a necromancer, or tieruse de cartes
-who seems both to have inspired
the deed and helped to accomplish it.

BITTERS-THE HUMAN STO?
MACH seems to require a tonic stimulant.
From time, whereof the memory of man
runnoth not to tho contrary, tonio bitters
havo been used. Formerly, men made
their own bitters, aud few thought of eat?
ing breakfast without first taking their
"tunsy." Thofo wero days, however,
when prohibitory laws wero unknown, and,
in consequence, liquors were pure. Deal?
ers contd then afford to bo honest and sell
nothing but tho unadulterated. Now,
however, what with Government tax and
court fines, poke-berry juice and alcohol
must pass muster for "old ryo" and "pure
Bourbon." People havo como to fear ?
poisoning moro than malarial diseases, 1
I and dropped their "tansy." Right boro is
where HOSTETTER ft SMITH, of Pitts?
burgh, have proven benefactors. Years
ago, thov commonocd tho manufacturo of
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS,
laying it down as a rulo (that has since
been conscientiously followed) to use no?
thing but tho purest liquors, manufac?
turen expressly for them. By strict adhe?
rence to this rule, they have won public
confidence and reaped'their reward in a
large, profitable and steady business.
Their BITTERS is known all over tho
country. They are thc pioneers of tho
business, and have tho largest manufac?
tory in tho world. Nor has success, in
their case, (as in too many instances,)
rendered them careless; their BITTERS
is as pure and good, to-day, as was tho
first distillation. We heartily reoouimcnd
them as a tonic.
As a specific for dyspepsia, biliousness,
constipation, nervousness, general debili?
ty and remittent and intermittent fevers,
its efficacy has never been questioned.
There are many worthless imitations.

An excellent Paper for Country Reading.
ITS POLITICS DEMOCRATIC

TO THE PEOPLE OF TIIE SO UTIL
THE WEEKLY GLEANER-Devoted to
thc rehabilitation of the South in its former
prosperity-is offered to subscribers at tho
low rate of $1.50 for six months.
The annals of tho American Republic
show no political campaign comparable in
thc magnitude of its issues and tho mo?
mentousness of its results to that for the
Presidency, now pending. Indeed, thc
very lifo of free govcrnmep* is on trial,
and it will bo a sad commentary on the
capacity of tho people for thc exercise of
that high trust ii they, thc jurors who aro
to try thc issue, pronounce a verdict of
self-condemnation. If tho South has any
hope it is in the success of thc Democratic
party in thc coming Presidential election;
and every citizen is vitally interested in
tho progress of the battle, and cannot
afford to be without a sound and reliable
As an organ, not only of .sound Demo?
cratic principles, but as a vehicle of ge?
neral news, the GLEANER is confidently
commended to Southern support. A largo
eight-page paper, of forty-eight columns,

torials. Especially will it bo valuable as
an organ to disabuso tho Northern mind
of the falsehoods in relation to Southern
thought and actions, with which it is thc
industrious vocation of certain parties to
poison tho springs of Northern feeling on
Southern subjects. In this view of tho
matter, no more valuable aid to tho trnc
reconstruction of the country and restora?
tion of just sentiment at the North toward
the F ?nth can bo rendered than by sub?
scribing to tho WEEKLY GLEANER and
sending it to acquaintances and friends in
