OUTRAGE NEAR GLENMORE-RBMARKA
"BLE PRESENCE OP MIND.-Sevonil duys
ago, a daughter of one of the citizens of
Ware County, living near Glenmore,'.was
passing from her fathor's house to that
of a neighbor, when she was met by a ne?
gro, who manifested violent intentions
toward her person, and was proceeding
to the execution of his diabolical design.
Tho girl instead of screamiug, as niue
tenth of females would probably have
done, with romurkabloproseuco of mind,
told tho brute "that there was som?
money at the house, and that if ho would
let her go, she would bring it to him."
Not being very bright, wo presume, ho
released her, and concealed himself upon
tho spot, until sho should return. She
did not retara horself, hut deputed her
father and others, who vory cheerfully
undertook the errand. Deponontsnyeth
not what was the result of their iuterviow
with tho ne?ro, and will not hazard an
opinion.- Valdosta, Ga., Times.

< * ? ?
Geherons Sentiments - In New York
Oration or Senator easterly-Speech, ot
The New York Democracy celebrated
the recent "Fourth" at Tammany. The
wigwam was in a blaze. We have read
with great satisfaction the sentiments of
the speakers. They breathe a Spirit of
consideration for ns of the South, and of
determined opposition to the assaults of
radicalism upon the popular institutions
of the land. Senator Casserly, referring
to the conditions imposed upon the
South.af ter the surrender, said that ho
honored the people! of the South for re?
fusing to become the willing instruments
of their own dishonor, by consenting to
put tho brand of repudiation upon tboso
mon who had sorved the Southern cause
in'the cabinet and in the field. If, says
Senator dasBorly, genuine harmony does
not now prevail between tho South and
North, it is because of the unwise and
vengeful policy of the radical party. Ho
said that, under the pr?sent state of
affaira at Washington and elsewhere,
under radical auspices, it was "asses and
savaus to the front," and not "lo the
centre," as Napoleon arranged it in
Egypt. Mr. S. S. Cox made a speech,
replete with sense and sentiment. He
"We must watch euch movement of
the radical janizaries. They have seized
the powers of tho Stute, aud by arbitra?
ry methods have turned thc very engines
of our freedom aggressively upon the
States aud tho peoplo. Montesquieu says
that, 'as in democracies tho peoplo seem
to act most as they please, this sort of
government has been deemed most free;
aud the power of the people has beeu
confounded with their freedom.' It is
true wo may havo tho templo of freedom
while the spirit is absont from the shrine;
or, if present, in tho form of a deformed
aud degrading image. It is truo with us
that, while the greater sovereignty has
engrossed all lesser sovereignties, the re?
public still exists. Thc beautiful Evau
gel of Liberty taught by the Father of
Democracy, Thomas Jefferson, in tho
Declaration of Independence, hus been so
tortured in its text aud misapplied in tho
commeutaiy, that it reads, under radical
light, moro liko the mummeries of some
unearthly craft than tho pure, simple,
well-ordered system of restraint and mod?
eration embodied in tho local govern?
ments and Federal Coustitution of thc
United States! Usurpation and violence,
uufratciuity and proscription, have mu?
tilated our system. The present admin?
istration, in its treatment of the South,
has not exhibited a single element of
charity or brotherhood. Tho only code
of amnesty-five years after the end of
civil strife-proposed by a radical louder
- (spoons)-has in it so many exceptions
that they outweigh tho modicum of
gruco in the first section of this bill of
hate. Not only aro States hold ia terror
and ia thrall by the majority of an omni?
potent Congress, but that body is now
engaged in showing how, iu individual
liberty, it can set aside tho Bill of Rights
in tho Federul Constitution."
And in conclusion, he went on to say:
"Tho Democracy demand peace among
the States, order among the people, and
economy in the administration. Seoure
these, and credit lifts up its head proud?
ly! Bond-holder and plough-holder, tax?
payer and tax-gatherer, all receive jus?
tice. Currency becomes as good as coin.
Public credit restores prosperity and
gold and silver. No ono thou can traffic
in our credit for private gain. As Go?
vernor Seymour onco said, ,'Democratic
faith seeks to level up. It means that
coin shall ring again on the counter o?
tho tradesman, glitter in the palm ol
labor, and gladden tho heart of the
wonuded soldier.' Honor, peace and
welfare-theso will come with the end ol
proscription against tho European emi?
grant and the Southern citizen. Oui
grass-grown ship-yards will again echo
with tho sound of labor. Our docks will
bo crowded with cargoes from tho fur?
thest East and West. Bribery, fraud,
8cliomiug, and bounties will becomo ob?
solete-as they wero unknown undci
Democratic rufo. The millions of acres
of our domain will not bo granted tc
grasping monopolies. Tho Union in itt
spirit, as in its form, will bo restored.
No power will bo usurped which belongs
to tho States, and no land monopolized
which belongs to tho people. To bring
about such au era is the Democratic aim.
To bring about such changes we mus!
cliug to tho ancient altars. Let us ad?
jure eaoh other not merely to speak, bul
to do well for tho republic-(lhere et
facer?. History tolls us of an oath which
rescued from tyrauny tho mountain ro

THE NEW RAILROAD Buinas.-Wo
learn that tho South Carolina Railroad
Company contemplates withdrawing
from the partnership in the new railroad
bridge, which is now being built across
the Savannah River. It will ho recol?
lected that it woo ngreed last summer,
between the Charlotte, Columbia and
Augusta and the South Carolina Railroad
Companies, that the former should build
a bridge across the Savannah River nt
the foot of Washington street, for the
construction of .which the South Caroli?
na Railroad was to bear half the ex?
penses, and the bridge, when completed,
should bo owned and used by the two
companies in common. Wo learn that
some days since, vice-President Tyler,
of the South Carolina Railroad, address?
ed a letter to President Johnston, of the
Charlotte, Columbia and Augusta Rail?
road, iu which ho expressed a desire to
withdraw from the agreement. He also
wrote that ho had submitted the agree?
ment to the attorney of the road, and
the latter was of the opiuion that it was
not binding, as the bridge had been mort?
gaged by tho Charlotte Road, and the
South Carolina Road could not, conse?
quently, have a half interest in tho mort?
gaged structure. Col. Johnston, how?
ever1, we understand, submitted tho ques?
tion to legal authority-telling him that
the piers of the bridge had not yet been
finished, and that all the advances made
for material, ho had considered made on
the joint account of the railways-and
was advised that the agreement was bind?
ing. What will be the final result of
these negotiations, has not yet transpir?
ed.-Augusta Chronicle and Sentinel,
The Board of Visitors of the Naval
Academy at Annapolis have concluded
their examinations of the cadets for the
class of 1871, to commence next Septem?
ber, and have reported agaiust a large
number of them, a majority of those re?
jected being from the Southern States.
The fact that the boys from tho Southern
States have had but meagre chances for
schooling during tho past ten yours, hus
induced Secretary Robeson to direct that
they be allowed to continue their studies
until September next, and stand another
examination, and he hopes that they
muy be thereby enabled to pass. Ho hus
to fill the vacancies made by the failure
of the candidates, and ho has expressed
a desire that tho Southern States should
have their just share, and he made the
above order not only as au act of justice
to the boys, but as au acknowledgment
of the claims of the members of Con?
gress and people of that section.
"A SNUB FROM THU SOUTH."-This is
what tho New York Tribune calls the re?
cent refusal of the Southern Presbyte?
rian Church to unite with their North?
ern brethren, and, ofter a column of
comment on tho matter, comes to the
conclusion that there is no prospect of a
rc-union in the present generation be?
tween tho churches North and South.
Dr. Pidmcr is disposed of in a paragraph
which is, doubtless, intended to bo aw?
fully facetious, but is simply a bit of
"loil" gloating over tho fact of his not
having a yote. while his negro servaut
has. Tho Tribune is never so happy as
on an occasion like this, when au oppor?
tunity presents itself for a gush over
Sambo and the chance of spelling rebel?
lion with a capital R, thus: Rebellion.
We kuow a minister who was generally
able to keep his cougregatiou wido awake,
but who, on ono occasion-it was a sultry
summer day-observed numbers of them
asleep. Ho resolved to nip tho evil
practice in the bud. So taking a good
survey of tho sceno before and around
him, he exclaimed, "I saw an advertise?
ment last week for five hundred sleepers
for a railroad. I think I could supply it
at least fifty, and recommend them as
good and sound." It is perhaps need?
less to add thal the supply instantly van?

> Wpen an eminent painter was request?
ed to paint Alexander the Great, so as to
givo a perfect likeness of the Macedo?
nian conqueror, ho felt a difficulty.
Uexander, in his wars, had been struck
by a sword, nud across his forehead was
nu immonse scar. The painter said: "If
I retain the scar, it will be nn offence to
the admirers of the monarch, and if I
omit it, it will fail to be a perfect like?
ness-what shall I do?" Ho hit upon a
happy expedient; ho represented tho
Emperor leaning on his elbow, with his
fore-finger upon his brow,-accidentally,
as it seemed, coveriug the scar upon his
forehead. Might not we represent each
other with tho finger of charity upon the
scar, instead of representing tho scar
deeper and blacker than it actually is?
Might not Christians learn from heathen?
dom a lesson of charity, of human kind?
ness and of love?
HINTS FROM A. POSTMASTER.-When
you call at the office for your mail, nnd
the postmaster bauds it out, ask him if
that is all.
If you ask for mail and he tells you
th^re is none, tell him there ought to be,
and go homo aud send the rest of the
family around to ask ot different times
through the day.
Don't bring your muil to the offico
until the mail closes, then curse the post?
master for not unlocking the mail .bag
and putting your letter in.
When you want a stamp put ou yonr
lotter, tell the postmaster to put it on;
if he don't lick it yon liok him. In case
yon put tho stamp on yourself, soak it
in your mouth long enough to remove all
the mucilage It will then ?tick till it is
Ile suro to ask the postmaster to credit
you for stamps, and if he has any ac?
commodation about him he will do it.
If yon have a box, stand and drum on
it until tho postmaster hands out your
mail; it makes him feel good, especially
if ho is waiting on some ono else.

Learned women never made good house?

Tho moment you educate ono of tho sex
up to the standard of rare distinction,
you unfit her for domestic duties, you
unfit her for ber proper family position.
She must wed a milksop and beeomo the
bend of the family herself, or else her
married lifo will bo a perennial sceuo of
