BRIDGE-BURNING—THE INCENDIARY HUNG.
The Rom (Ga.) AiifAmterJiays aa attempt
was made to burn the bridge across Pettet'i
Creek, oa the Bute road, miles above Car.
tertvllle, oa Monday night, the 33d Inst,, by a
man whole nam we did not learn from East
Tennessee. - Ue had been about there several
days, and had eiolted considerable suspicion
so ration so that he was watched. They saw
bim pour alcohol on the bridge, and wag In the

lit a match for that pnrpoee. lie owned up,
and was bnng oa Tuesday In Csasville.
THE ARKANSAS CONSPIRATORS.
We learn from the Little Sock Journal ot
the 17th D.o.; that the 78 prisoners, whose ar
rest in Scare county we bare noticed, were
brought before the Military Board, and alter an
Investigation were all released. They protest
ed their devotion to the Confederacy, and claim
ed that the organization contemplated no more
criminal intent than to Insure them against the
hostilities of aa invading army. The leaden,
it was evident, contemplated criminal ulteiior
designs, but their followers were in the dark ae
to what was proposed, They forthwith formed
themselves into a company, elected their offi
cers from those who had arrested and escorted
them as a guard from their native county, and
were sworn into the service of the Confederate
States "for and during the war." The Journal
says that the scene which followed their re
lease, the touching remarks of the Governor,
and their solemn enlistment Into the Confeder
ate service, was a very affectionate and Im

that they were doomed to die by the hands of

A DEAD LOCK.
The Legislature of Florida Is at a dead lock
on the Senatorial question. We learn from the
Tallahassa iViins of Deo. 5th that that body
meets In joint convention every afternoon, and
ballots from three to five times, but are now,

an election as tney were on tne first ballot.
POSTAGE STAMPS AND TREASURY NOTES.
While the postage stamps now In use have an
awered their purpose very well, and have re
lieved the community of a serious Inoonvenl-
enee, it Is desirable to have them engraved In
euoh a style as to defy any attempt at imitation
We are therefore (rratifled to learn that a con.
tract has been made by the Postmaster-General
with an accomplished steel eneravcr. who has
located in this city, by whioh the publio will
soon be supplied with stamps of different de
nominations, executed in the best style of art.
They will bear the likenesses of different
statesmen of the South, and thus each denomi

A Great Privilege to be a Farmer.
The following eloquent passage we extract
from an address delivered last September by
Edward Everett, at the Fair of the Adams, Rod
man, and Loraina Union Agricultural Society,
in Jefferson county, new xork:
Let those of you particularly engaged In the
cultivation of the soil bear in mind, more than
ever, the duty devolved opon yoo, as that part
of the population who are called upon to pro
vide the daily bread for the rest Duty, did I
Say? Regard It rather as your privilege that,
in the mysterious economy or nature, the hus
bandman is the immediate co-worker with Pro
vidence, and learn tclook upon the soil, with its
recreative powers the seed with its undevelop
ed germ of manifold Increase the elements of
growth In earth, and water, and light, and air
as one vast system of machinery, waiting to be
called into aotlon for the sustenance of man, by
his own industrial co-operation.
We nave au looked with interest and pleas
ure on some noble factory, filled with Ingenious
maohinery, constructed of metal, wood and
leather; wheels, and ratchets and oams motions
direct, reciprocating, and eocentrio; oylinders,
and spindles and looms, with all their springs,
And screws, and bolts, skilfully fitted, and pol
ished, and ouea ana gearea, aoore and below,
from the foundation to the roofi the Impatient
steam idly breaking on the mighty turbine, all
waiting tor the controlling band of man to move
the lever, bid the great water wheel oommenoe
its round, and start the entire system into life
and aotlon. '
So, and with admiration Increased bv all the
superiority of the works of God orer the works
of man, when we look oa the wondrous and
beautiful earth, with all Its capacities for the
supply of human want, the varieties of soil
